Happy Birthdays, Aries!

Meet Ricardo Breceda, Sorcerer of Sheet Metal!

Aries-Mars Ricardo Breceda Metal Sculptor Borrego

This story is about an artist born in 1962 in Durango, Mexico, no birthdate available. But I’m sure he is Aries something and/or has a strong Mars, the Aries planet, in his birth chart!

Dubbed “the Picasso of Steel,” Ricardo Breceda was an injured construction worker and a boot salesman, but became a renowned artist in ten short years with no previous art training or even an interest in art!

People are awestruck by the beauty and scale of his work, and the way his animals seem so real, the way he fashions sheet metal into muscle and bone, the way he captures motion. One writer says: Breceda believes in motion. He’s almost always in motion. One of those fast-metabolism guys who need to be moving. He’s been that way his whole life. Breceda believes in the can-do attitude. He refuses to set himself limits.”

His dedication is apparent in this story about him by Gordon Lee Johnson!

It’s 116 degrees under the desert sun, so hot even the Borrego Springs horned toads are hunting shade.

But there’s no shade for metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda who’s welding sheet-metal scales onto a 350-foot sea monster.

White-hot sparks pop and blister from molten metal. So much sweat rolls into his eyes, he can hardly see through the welding helmet’s visor. The sun is hot, the metal is hot, the arc welder is hot, the helmet is hot, his clothes are hot.

It’s July, he’s been sweltering for almost three months on this sea monster. “All I can think is — let’s finish this thing,” he says.

Lost in the fever of work, his working delirium is broken by a young man who is yelling at him to stop, and holding out a bottle of water.

“He actually got in my face, and yelled at me to stop. I didn’t want to stop, I wanted to keep going. But I’m glad I stopped. That guy may have saved my life.”

Breceda knocked off, drank lots of water, and regained himself after a few hours, cooling off to continue.

A couple of days later, he finally finished. “Let me tell you, a beer never tasted so good.”

Ricardo has won prizes, there is much written about him. He says “I work hard to get a piece to look alive, to give it a soul.

You can see this amazing work at Galleta Meadows Estates in Borrego Springs California.

ARIES 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy April 10 2017 Full Moon Jupiter Spica

April 7  Jupiter at Opposition. The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter’s cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.

April 10, 2017, see diagram – presents the first full moon of spring for the Northern Hemisphere and the first full moon of autumn for the Southern Hemisphere. The first full moon of the season shines in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

Jupiter stays in front of the constellation Virgo until November 2017.

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse!

Aries 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, happened the last 8 days of 2016. 

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The next of the set is the March 30 Jupiter square Pluto! See more 

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before. See more

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries 2017-April 2018!

Aries Heady RED Hat!

It’s time to surge into your New Year! May there be many grand new accomplishments!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Aries is FRESH, a sign of the times, even of times to come! Give them the job, they will lead, but get outta their way. They may experiment here and there, taking a bit more time, but the offshoot ideas will be well worth it! Pay attention and capitalize! Aries, be smart and realize the worth of the experience of elders and practiced business men, even if it does remind you of your Father! You may be denied at first, feel blocked, but you can and will do it! If things are too musty, move on and do it on your own, taking the good ideas and sensible guidance with you. You remain independent because it’s your choice to do so!

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 12 and 15 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Aries, it will be the surf of a lifetime! it will be your unpredictable but fascinating neighbor you get glimpses of. There will be curiosity, caution and irresistible inspiration! Pisces insights about you may be tailor made, so really listen though at times it sounds like they are speaking in tongues. Their troubles may call you to rescue them. That may go well, but if it goes on and on, you may inadvertently be enabling. Walk away, maybe check in time to time. Plant your seeds where there will be potent results.

Uranus covers 23 to 29 Aries, brings us to the brink of the sign change into Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they are not forgotten. Change worthy ideas need to be highlighted so they are not taken for granted.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! It takes a lot to make an Aries head spin, and this is exactly what’s happening! At last, a friend who is grateful and keeps feeding you the most outrageous data, inventing daily! It’s their turn to keep up, and that’s rare! Sparks fly and everyone marvels! It’s like Love at first sight, and it works! It may not always be easy, each are quite independent and used to having their own way, but the ideas are bigger than they are separately, so get to work and have an uncommonly good time!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 24 Pisces to 0 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation and impresses Aries with its immediate insights, whether in love or business, body or mind! When it goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Aries to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point. Aries is willing to go if it suits his purpose right now. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Aries loves a new cause and believes Saturn to be a good backer, so will go along. Sag can lead and teach. Aries wants more than words, let’s make doing it part of the teaching! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Aries is satisfied, and like Sag, is ready to move on.

29 year Saturn Returns can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that is doable, one step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Aries loves the perfect fresh challenge of new beginnings, especially independent new beginnings! Thresholds were meant to be leapt across! Capricorn may get tired just watching, and they are hard workers themselves. But things get done. Capricorn needs to watch to be sure things are per specs. Aries may get grumpy it there is smothering supervision. Need to talk this out. If Aries is experienced, give them a free hand. The love department may have delays or hit a dry spell for awhile. Give your body plenty of rest, take time out. Cappies make you think you have to prove yourself, and you do, but there are limits too!

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 13 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aries finds that exhilarating, plus meeting new people, seeing new places! Negotiate personal time while Libra is with other friends so they won’t feel lonesome while you gone. Be back when you say you will be or they will worry. They are ever etiquette minded, and you will learn some good skills that bring several excellent opportunities your way! They will broaden your horizons as they survey the entire territory while you may be focused on one facet of it. But your focus may be perfect for getting one thing done at a time while they are contemplating. Social situations may cause you to gain a little weight. Dance it away!

Jupiter in Scorpio is not exactly an Aries comfort zone. The Underground dimension may visit you, requiring a deeper look at you, your intentions. Seductive, lucrative financial offers may need you to sacrifice temporarily. Things are not completely straightforward, yet certain revelations may compel you to take a chance. You have picked yourself up before and done even better than before. You can do it again if necessary. Or maybe you are older now and feeling less willing just because it’s an intriguing challenge. Unlike usual you may find yourself seeking tried and true advice. The timeframe involved is longer than your usual venue. It may be worth it, or the tunnel cramps your style, you just want it to be over, get back to your stand up mode. An oblique alliance may be formed that you use as a wild card in the future. Stay clean.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition or makes it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships – loving or leaving.

Happy Birthdays, Aries! Wishing you a #1 Year!


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Aries ACTivation!

Aries Sea Serpent Head Ricardo Breceda Metal Borrego

A fire made treasure, that’s our Aries! Ricardo Breceda’s Sea Serpent. This is just the head. The rest of it undulates through the desert sand along behind… Gordon Johnson Photo

If you have never been there before it is INitiation! If you have been there, but inactive, perhaps forgotten, you may need ACTivation! If that’s all going for you, then it may be time for you to be the lead Activator!

Purity is high grade energy, has absolute integrity! Aries rarely calculates or is conniving. They function immediately on auto response, accurately filling the immediate need. It’s a White Diamond Light function. Mind you, they aren’t saints, well, not usually, ’cause they are impatient if you can’t or don’t do the same. It’s no fun if you don’t keep up, LOL!

Red is their other color! They are red-blooded heroes and heroines, love those red trucks, and white cars! Racing in any form, is a passion! To them it is not a gamble, they are just so fast they don’t even think about it. Gets them in trouble sometimes. Other times we are so glad they made it, came to help when they did!

They love the challenge of a catching a good partner. They are adoring fans, roses, new places to go together. But they can leave once the challenge is over. They need a match to their continued high energy, needs to be physical. Biking, hiking, skiing, skating. Speeding somewhere together at the front of the pack suits their Spirits! If you like your sex a bit quick, anywhere anytime, fiery and red hot, you have found your lover!

Being their own boss, having their own hours and business, is perfect for self motivators like them! They may start with nothing and build an empire! A Job that has dramatically different challenges, not routine, works. Aries is innovative, loves being the first to try something new. Meeting new people, possible co investors, delights them. They are terrific sales people. They know what you need before you do! Knives, swords, guns, fighting hold fascination. They have the courage to lead even if it might mean their own death. You will find them at the front working with fire!

Classrooms are a tough assignment. It’s a closed space. Boring to look at, always the same for a time frame as fast as Aries. Assign them to keep it changing. Have different instructors. Blow off the energy on top by riding your bike to work or school! Put in plenty of sports, dance classes before sit down classes. Sitting drives them crazy. Let them stand? Do walking meditations! They will thrive on anything that involves heroes and builds independence. For many the independence of riding their bike makes it their vehicle of choice. Science and mechanics, how things work, especially cars, race cars, will do the trick!

Lean blondes or redheads. Dashing and dazzling demeanor. Fresh. Naive and innocent. Radiant health. They exercise, are generally not readers or TV watchers, don’t sit long enough to eat much. But they can have accidents – cuts, head/eye injuries, road rash, punctures, and headaches and burnouts from too much exercise! They like a clean body machine and aren’t inclined to meds or addictions, unless it’s to or for exercise. Oh, and btw, headgear is primal for Aries! It keeps their mind happy!

Fiery crafts jump start their day! Whether it is creating a mechanical toy for their kids, building a new vehicle, exotic enhancing fuels, making expensive jewelry, glass blowing, cheffing that fine steak or burger, retiring to metal sculpting recycled leavings! It engages their whole being. It’s gotta work, amaze people, and you gotta stay alive while you are doing it! Iron matches their blood and copper is their tone!

Many would disagree with me, but I think of Aries as the Crown Chakra energy center of the body. It’s that White Diamond Light you see on some Chakra diagrams. Their perception of incoming information, connecting with the higher realms, must be clean and clear to quickly save lives when it is an emergency, or to not miss a potent opening, that one moment that could make a difference for the rest of your life! Robin DiPasquale, ND RH (AHG) says ‘The energy of the crown chakra is about opening to the heavens through the crown of the head, connecting with the electrical forces of the universe, and allowing these to flow through the body to join with the magnetic forces of the earth energy in the heart.’

Pink is that blend of White Light and the Red Blood of the Heart of Life. There’s nothing Aries wouldn’t do for you if they could. Most of all, they would like you to be strong. To be able to stand on your own two feet. They want you to try. They will take you places you have never seen before. They ignite your curiosity, show you what’s possible. They scatter seeds with the spark of life wherever they go. They have relentless passion for the Spirit of Life!

Bright White Light, Red Hot Flame, Pink for Pure Love…they love for love itself.

Chiron semi-sextile Uranus 26 times in 13 years!

See the ENTIRE 2017 Special Edition Newsletter for interpretation, more details, of upcoming Planetary Patterns, Stelliums, Retrogrades, Full and New Moons, Eclipses!
See the entire Capricorn 2016/17 Newsletter!

Overview of 2017 Planetary Backdrop 

2017 opens with three outer planets in Cardinal signs: Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Libra, his opposite, invites, greets and makes introductions. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. Together, we are inspired, form lasting unions. Saturn and Neptune remain in Mutable signs Sagittarius and Pisces. Flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems will change, be more accommodating, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Saturn and Neptune, Dharma and Spirit, blend and bind us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone.

The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! See more

The six aspects that started Oct 23, 2016, repeat twice and continue through Nov 11, 2017. The challenging aspects run through Nov 2. Of 14 2017 aspects, 4 are considered favorable. The aspects span from 11 degrees to 27 degrees, so likely all of us will be activated one time or another. Jupiter, the fastest of the outer planets, makes 10 of these 14 aspects; Saturn makes the other 4. Continue to make sustainable living choices. Be ready and flexible for lots of changes.

Many are waiting, getting poised for the phenomenal 2018 sweep of positive aspects! There are way fewer aspects! It has 6 favorable, only 1 difficult at the end of the year. Jupiter is making ALL the aspects! There are a LOT of sign changes, FIVE! That will more than stir the brew! Don’t expect things to be settled, but the changes bode well, new times! Live closely now so you are free to invest in 2018.

Sign Changes

Sign changes set the tone of and standards for the year. The first sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Libra establishes fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be deepened. Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to make a significant Capricorn achievement.

For most of the year, until October, Jupiter and Saturn are in Libra and Sagittarius, outgoing and curious. Then Jupiter goes into Scorpio and it can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time. After we get used to this change of venue, Saturn finally makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter and Saturn change Signs. Jupiter starts in Libra. See Jupiter into LIBRA! Libras work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! October 10, Jupiter enters Scorpio and goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, funding, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality, some relationships will be left behind, others renewed and rededicated.

Jupiter makes 4 aspects, and Saturn makes 2 aspects, that started late 2016, open 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set is Jupiter opposition Uranus that finishes the Jupiter set Sep 27. The Saturn pair finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!  Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus is the first aspect of a year long series of 2017-18 positive aspects beginning Nov 11! Uranus is the planet of Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. We can be the different specialist person we were born to be! Conversely, sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, the combination is another way of saying Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice Capricorn builds strong because it knows just how much weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.


A look at 2017 Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

Planet Patterns Transits
Beautiful image from Soul Tracing by Dyan

2017 opens the day after the Dec 31, 2016 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron. They will stay close until the second exact aspect Feb 4 2017. The 2016 Oct to Dec Jupiter set – inconjunct Neptune, square Pluto, opposite Uranus and inconjunct Chiron – will reverse through these 4 aspects through mid May holding the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune closely until July 4! It finishes the set entirely wildly Sep 27 opposite Uranus! The retrograde/direct turning points, adjustment making inconjuncts with Chiron and Neptune, are important because of the duration they are held and that they are turning points. Major aspect Jupiter opposite Uranus is super charged, expect bold changes! Jupiter square Pluto was the prominent Presidential Election aspect and holds the keys to the financial kingdom!

Jupiter square Pluto and opposition Uranus, makes a framework for several provocative Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross as Moon, Sun, Mercury or Venus move through Aries. The Feb 26th 22 degree Mars exact conjunction Uranus, plus they opposite Jupiter should be spectacular to say the least! Make sure your insurance is up to date and comprehensive, covers fire/heat and electronics/electricity – wiring, explosions. Earlier in the day of the April 10 Aries/Libra FULL MOON, the Moon and Sun straddle the Jupiter opposition Uranus axis! Extraordinary proportions and options!

Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Careers and businesses will be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Times change. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The May 18 second and Nov 11 last trine to Uranus will occur at the degree of the Galactic Center! The square and trines were only 4 days apart, finishing aspects at Christmas 2016, and make their third and last aspects quite closely again Nov 2 and 11, 2017. That Nov 11 aspect launches a year of uninterrupted classically favorable aspects!

Uranus and Chiron will be aspected 4 times each. Healing change. Businesses will be called to be more inclusive of all beings, broadened by their new connections.

The last aspect of 2017 is Jupiter trine Neptune Dec 2! Let the magical journey begin! Saturn changes signs, into it’s own sober and mighty productive sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! Some say Solstice is the true New Year.

Uranus square Pluto is in its LAST 5 degree period of that square! It is in a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind.
 
In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! The exact 2017 dates are July 29 and Dec 28.

Be well, well loved, may you prosper, and all your good works be blessed….

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

Furka Pass, Switzerland, was used as a location in the James Bond film Goldfinger. From Twisted Sifter, LOL!

In some areas switchbacks are a necessity. Retrogrades as we know them astrologically are forward, back, forward. The same degrees are covered three times. They may be in one sign or lap over two signs, the end of one, beginning of the other. This time we have the last two degrees of Fire sign Sagittarius and the first 15, half, of Earth sign Capricorn. Sagittarius is the last fire sign, important for inspiration, purpose. It has the rainbow arc far seeing vision, can be wise; Capricorn is the mountain goat, and together they go!

Gaining ground or getting down! Sagittarius and Capricorn will usually choose up and down switchbacks as they cross country, no fear of heights. Sagittarian long striding legs just want to see what’s up there, see the views! Capricorn shorter legs have the surefooted goatly stamina, love the terrain, the crisp feel of the cool air, a keen sense of achievement, like maybe Everest! Both love a good scramble! Winter sports are grand, and climbing, cycling, skiing!

Each direction and level gives a different view, vantage point. But these are to be observed, incorporated, as we go along. We do get stalled at the 8 day direction change points (retrograde and direct stations), giving us a breather, a time to contemplate, assimilate, gather resolve, refocus. But is isn’t for long. Mercury Retrograde is only one of the simultaneous planetary happenings, and it is swept along, tussled and tumbled, a rolling stone, bumping into others, impelled to share what it has seen and learned. And, of course, it never stopped going forward in the sky anyway! It is a viewpoint that occurs because of the Earth, Mercury, Sun relationship as a faster planet moves past a slower planet. Nor is it unusual, happens 3 to 4 times every year, giving 18% of us Mercury Retrograde in our birth charts – thinkers, fact checkers, sometimes learning difficulties.

Mercury is information matters. What you learn, how you learn, how you communicate. There comes the paperwork and contracts, keypads, computers, cells. Mercury Rx does 180s on you, mixes up appointments, the electronics go fritz, there are often misunderstandings as things change quickly.  Confirm appointments.

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle starts Dec 1. The Retrograde dates are Dec 19 to Jan 8, Christmas and New Year! It finishes the whole cycle Jan 27, 2017. Prepare in advance!

Sagittarius is pretty much a forward moving fire sign, but Capricorn minds the time and makes sensible precautions, does due diligence. Gear and autos are given their maintenance in advance, batteries purchased. They line up experts that may possibly be needed. Timing may be critical before winter storms, so they are mindful of weather reports, choose their itinerary carefully. Consultations are recorded, any changes are dated and initialed. If purchases are made during the Rx cycle Cap gets the warrantee.

Sagittarius is generally pretty confident of choices, but we all know about procrastination when something just doesn’t sit right. Time will tell, and at times, no choice being the choice. Sag matters may be where to move, if to move over the holidays. Those of you with chart factors in the last three degrees of mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, or especially Sagittarius, this year, if you can wait, move after Mercury goes forward Jan 8. Have your astrologer do your AstroLocality as soon as you can, and select the best timing for your move. If you must move, get something temporary, wait to get furnishings until it is a more permanent situation. There may also be concerns about where and if to go to school. Stories may change as information is gathered, opinions may morph as we come across better ways. Let it flow.

Capricorn deals with reality. While Mercury is Rx this time you with factors from 0 to 18  in the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and especially Capricorn, will likely have the most changes. Capricorn careers may shift – more holiday work, get laid off, or a new job that doesn’t turn out as expected. Stay well rested. Real estate may figure in. If you can’t wait to sell, be sure to use an experienced realtor. You may find yourself given notice to move. Papers about sciences could change, facts repudiated, segments lost. Backup everything as you go! Parental responsibilities, especially of Fathers, may be challenged or mended. Youth or being a senior could be a benefit or cause for concern. People from your past may swing by again. Remember why it didn’t work before, but check in to see if they have new valuable information. Knees, skin and bones need protection, be careful. Breakdowns may happen, the holiday mentals or while traveling. Keep, extra food, water, thermal gear, a space blanket on board.

This rephrasing Mercury brings, keeps our mind working, our attention shifting. Excellent changes and opportunities are possible. Stay alert. It is concurrent with the four outer planet aspects that are happening intensely over only seven days at Christmas time, Dec 24, 26, 28/29, and 31! I’m calling these the Holiday Four, and there is a fifth aspect that is quite close at that same time! See more

Whatever happens, keep the long term in mind, keep an open mind. What may at first appear to be a problem may resolve in an unexpected way that you are grateful for later. Deliberately put Retrograde techniques into your life! Turn around and look back from time to time. Change the level of your vantage point. Look out further than your usual perimeter. Stand still until you really see.

New Moon of Dreams!   – Trine Neptune, Jupiter Square Pluto!

New Moon of Dreams!  – Trine Neptune, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Sunday Oct 30, 10:38 AM Pacific at 7 SC 44 

New Moon Grand Canyon Milky Way

Remote and sacred places on a dark night are perfect choices for your Scorpio… Grand Canyon is one of the best places in the world to witness celestial wonders. Don’t think for a second that outdoor adventures end when the sun goes down!

No Full Moon over the ominous castle on Halloween this year! Instead, it will be fittingly dark! But it does precede the Presidential Election. It will hold some of the deeper secrets – some yet to be played, some never to be known.

New Moons of the longer nights time of year have an even deeper feel. Leaves are blanketing earth, protecting the soil from drying winds, storm runoff, mouldering and feeding our soils for spring growth to come. New Moons complete cycles and we feel the endings, the accomplishments, what lingers to be carried on into the new cycle.

Maybe we sleep a little more deeply and the dreams are more vivid as we come closer to our Soul’s longings. This is especially true this time because the New Moon and Mercury trine, flow well, with Neptune in Pisces, the planet and sign of dreams and magic! Intuition abides, Mercury the translator is at hand. Scorpio questions the dream’s meaning. Moon remembers long ago times, and how the Mother’s Mother taught her children. Sun shines, even in the dark, giving a glow to special moments that they may be shared. Mercury, keenly records the whispers and nuances to give them full expression, context, a perspective of the times.

New Moon and Mercury are semi sextile Jupiter in Libra, giving a living breath, further intensifying Jupiter’s relationships. Passions for learning are focusing as new steps are revealed, the core energy must be answered, the Kundalini can’t be ignored! It’s what we live for!

Jupiter in turn closely exchanges principles with hardworking Saturn, now in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius, that feels the responsibility to do the mission one is meant to do! Education, the kind that suits your learning style, is imperative! Venus is right at Saturn’s shoulder showing us how wonderful a choice it is! It’s lovely, an enjoyable journey, charmed, worthy, and makes hella good sense! There is great mentorship, and the fees may be at a discount!

Saturn and Venus are semi sextile Pluto! There is a rapport because Saturn is the planet of Pluto’s current sign Capricorn. Saturn is ever so sensible, though in Sagittarius he is more inquisitive than usual. There are many paths to the mountain top, and he chooses well. Venus adds grace and charisma, a sweet smile, and off they go arm in arm. Pluto sees they have got something, and puts his money there! Pluto adds a couple footnotes that make the journey and the story even better. There’s an old Master up the road they must see.

The big aspect is Jupiter upcoming square Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, exact Nov 24. This New Moon and the Nov 14 Full Moon, both include this aspect and provide a foreground of thoughtful matters leading to Nov 24, as well as being the pre and post election charts.

No, it isn’t all going to be easy. Whatever the obstacles, they need to be addressed sooner than later. It could be there is a start, but the finish is delayed. Money runs out. Someone close may require a lot care time and that sets you back. Keep your balance as possible; focus on priorities. Watch your own health, no burnout. You may be hard pressed to make deadlines. Important to set boundaries to protect what time you do have. See More

Mars is also in Capricorn, but mostly working on his own now. He sextiled Chiron, squared Uranus Friday the 28th. He and Chiron may have found a better way to do the job. Square Uranus, he likely left a friend or two behind. There could have been challenges over who was in charge, an accidental mess, too much weight. Perhaps he thought Uranus in Aries was irresponsible and Uranus, loving his freedom, simply let Mars go without much ado.

Preceding the Presidential Election, some will do last days of Soul searching to decide how to vote or whether to vote. Scorpio is able to make sacrifices, surrender and hold peace in difficult or imperfect circumstances while biding their time. Things change. With Jupiter in Libra there are powerful dichotomies, extreme polarities. Most of us agree we want the world to be a better place. Be thinking what you can do, personally, to make that happen. Working together is sometimes easier said than done. If your candidate wins, stay kind. If you candidate loses, stay kind. Middle ground may not be an option you choose, but be respectful as you fulfill your choice. Some of us will be walking paths we have never done before. Take it easy on yourself and others.

Steady in the Light and good luck on your journey.

Super SuperMoon! Full Frosty, Beaver Moon! – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Sign Changes, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Monday November 14, 5:52 AM Pacific at 22 Taurus 37

Exquisite Full Moon Frosty by David Cartier Sr Phoenix Rising Meditation

David Cartier, Sr. says ‘I was attracted to the way the slight bit of ice fog in the subzero air seemed to be sucking the moonbeam straight downwards.’ Exquisite image he calls Frosty Moon. I think it is a perfect Phoenix rising meditation.

11.10.2016 Note: Donald J Trump is President-elect. There were many successes for women! 52-year-old Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto became the nation’s first Latina Senator, replaces Democratic minority leader Senator Harry Reid. In California, State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris was elected as the state’s first freshman Senator in 24 years. Harris is the first black politician to represent California, the second black woman ever to join the Senate, and the first woman ever elected as California attorney general. 48 year-old Tammy Duckworth, a congresswoman from Illinois and the first disabled woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, won the race for US Senate. Ilhan Omar became the nation’s first Somali-American legislator after she won a House seat in Minnesota. The 34-year-old succeeded with 80% of the vote! Kate Brown was elected as the nation’s first openly LGBT governor in Oregon. (GoodNewsNetwork.org)

Now we know who our next President will be. Only a week after the election, we will be comparing how it is with how we speculated it might be. A Taurus Moon is organic and practical, will help us make the most of what we can. We have a need to stay calm, keep basic resources intact. Scorpio Sun seeks alliances that will withstand any storms. It ferrets monies away in secure untouchable places. It strikes and takes advantage of any opportunities that may occur unexpectedly. Scorpio, a water sign, flows along mighty channels, sweeping debris out of the way, leaving silt for more fertile ground. Full circle, the floodplains become rich Taurus soil for new growth. From rampage to rampant abundance!

The nature of Full Moon oppositions is to divide and conquer, have awareness of a primordial axiom. It bridges the difference by making us lift our heads to be aware of the other. We finds ways to work in concert, each contributing their remarkable specialty. Or, we acknowledge that real differences exist to the natural exclusion of each other at this time, and let each other go on our own good way. Many options, often several together in overlapping layers.

Elementally, Taurus is mine, Scorpio is ours. Taurus acquires and owns; Scorpio shares and possesses! Taurus stills and absorbs like the Buddha; Scorpio, though outwardly doesn’t show it, hosts the human eternal flame, the Kundalini, the power at the base of the spine. Taurus solidly fortifies while Scorpio scathes and scorches! When friendly, it checks the perimeter so no one even gets to the fort! Both are fixed signs, so battles may continue over aeons of lifetimes, but, when they say it is done, it’s over. Some battles are within ourselves, others are with loved ones, or people around us. Oppositions cause us to study our so called opponent. Even if we ignore them, we are forced to see what to ignore! Paradoxically, as we come to understand, we make peace.

Our Full Moon axis leaves two planets behind. There was a Chiron bow, trine the Sun, sextile the Moon. Chiron is in Pisces, the possibility of Soul and Spirit healing, dreams of saving cherished remnants, piecing things to a renewed wholeness. There is consideration of immortality, things more important than simple mortal existence, living for body and money. Some teachings come subtly, like bubbles rising slow motion in the water, like visions in the fog, in and out of focus, a sound in the distance you aren’t sure of…yet it calls to you. You can feel it.

Sun is leaving the inconjunct with Uranus, Moon is leaving the semisextile. This set is nagging and disturbing. Good. There are new things to incorporate into our plans, but fixed signs prefer what’s already established. They, however, are the perfect signs to carry a new order forward. They don’t make change lightly, so what they accept, usually has merit if they are to bother with it at all. Taurus is sensible, and Scorpio is astute at seeing what’s behind the excitement. There may be a shift in alliances, or who does what, to get it all done.

Mercury, Venus and Mars have all changed signs since our New Moon only two weeks ago, and they are in close degrees! Mercury is now in Sagittarius sextile Mars in Aquarius! There are things to be said, and now! Independence, right action, freedom, need to be spoken as teachings community wide. New friends can be made, a new computer or programs very helpful. Venus, now in Capricorn, sits at the Mercury/Mars midpoint making sure they don’t exaggerate, are polite, have backup for what they claim. Venus wants respect for the message, and things to get done in a timely fashion to have maximum impact.

Jupiter is closer to sextile Saturn. They get very close, but not exact until Aug 27. Jupiter retrogrades to make more social and professional relationships that will support their work later on. Jupiter cheers Saturn. They both want education presented in ways that are meaningful, have credibility, and easy to uptake. Jupiter in Libra goes for more youth, while Saturn in Sagittarius draws the elders. Saturn holds Jupiter to task, keeping their purpose a priority. Expanding the range of their work, or the breadth of their territory may cause more work but a greater payoff in time. Saturn should keep things from getting too thin and overextending themselves, missing the mark. See more

If they don’t stay the course with right action, the Nov 24 Jupiter square Pluto may bring them down. Or, if there are things that need recovery work that need addressing before Jupiter and Saturn can get on with their work, the cleanup and renovation needs be done first. Jupiter in Libra may be over trusting, afraid to call out problems because of not wanting to hurt feelings. Or they may jump to conclusions, exaggerate, make enemies. Pluto in Capricorn may be old school and end negotiations. Pluto may try to force issues, but Jupiter knows how to sidestep and run, call the attorney. Pluto may look like he is in total control yet be more vulnerable than you think. And there are times when you must tell it like it is and let the chips fall. If that is your choice, be ready for consequences and have a backup plan in order for possible contingencies.

If Jupiter uses discretion and finesse – not manipulation, Pluto may be happy to receive him. Jupiter is often genuine and straightforward, honest with no tricks, means well. Pluto is not threatened, and in fact impressed with these sophisticated Libra ideas. They may both come out with some grand agreements, a plan that may be tinkered with, but develops well over time! See more

This is the last Moon before the Jupiter square Pluto is exact the first time. A Full Moon, an opposition, examines the range of values between the signs. Both have true principles and standards at different sides of the table. Use both, to judge the matters appropriate to one side or the other.

Jupiter square Pluto is the second aspect of the 2016 Oct to Dec 31 set of six that repeat two more times throughout 2017, the final aspect Nov 11, 2017.  Choices now will change as things develop. Look to your long term future to make best picks and get off to a good start.

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close semisextile with Pluto. Saturn, ruling the sign Capricorn that Pluto is now in, will have an honorable say with Pluto, asking for leniency, to hold back for a while, to consider a more generous solution. However, kindly Venus is no longer with Saturn, and if things have just gone too far, his ethics offended, he may call for an example to be made, complete culpability.

Neptune in Pisces is at Moon’s South Node. Some of the ideas of the time may come from past lives, dreams of a long time ago, longings of many Souls. There may be a revival, a welling up, waves of tears ~ of happiness for a recognition from within, or of the Universe! Compassion replaces arrogance. There may be wrongs to be righted, healing to be done, shyness to overcome, to free your Spirit to step into this new frame.

Technicalities per Space.com  The “supermoon.” The full moon that occurs on this day will also very nearly coincide with perigee, the object’s closest approach to Earth for the year, in an event popularly known as a supermoon. The moon will turn full at 8:52 a.m. EST (1352 GMT), just 2.4 hours after it comes within just 221,541 miles (356,536 km) of the planet. (The moon’s average distance from Earth in its elliptical orbit is 238,900 miles, or 384,470 km.) The last time the moon came this close was on Jan. 26, 1948! Expect a large range in ocean tides (exceptionally low to exceptionally high) for the next few days.

We may feel a bit tidal ourselves! Even great Scorpio rivers have tides where they meet the ocean! Those of you who are coastal, take your camera with you for some super low and high tide shots!

Enjoy the Super SuperMoon! May your Circle Ceremonies be Healing.

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Iman, Bowie's Amazing Wife

IMAN: When I started in the fashion industry, it was unheard of for models of color to be featured on major magazines covers, or to work for exclusive fashion and beauty houses around the world. But you can’t be afraid to break down barriers. Before modeling, I came from a strong family, I was a college student. I traveled and knew five languages. So, modeling became a platform for what I do now as CEO of IMAN Cosmetics [premiere line for Women with Skin of Color], and for authoring books, being Global Ambassador for KEEP A CHILD ALIVE, hosting PROJECT RUNWAY in Canada and creating GLOBAL CHIC on HSN.

July 25, 1955 Iman has Sun, Jupiter/Mars and Pluto in LEO! SuperModel is just the right term for her. She stands 5′ 9″, 1″ shorter than her husband David Bowie was. David had Moon, Saturn and Pluto in LEO, so they were a brilliant couple, each a power in their own right! Iman’s Sun is 1 degree Leo, a degree of Initiation. Jupiter, fame, and Mars, the planet of leadership have no hesitation in modeling the adventure! Pluto is power and charisma, and Iman is gifted! Leo is generous and Pluto funds grants. She has a big heart. See her Chart

She has three planets in Cancer, Mercury/Venus and Uranus. Cancer is as nurturing as Leo is loving! Mercury and Venus together give a blessing of communicating precious words to women and children, families. Uranus thinks of more than the children at home; it wants to help the children of the world. Her Moon is in Libra, intercultural, across ages, religions. Her beauty abounds and attracts the support she needs to do her work here on the planet – promoting confidence in women of color, creating better living conditions, health, and prosperity for families.

IMAN: Two pieces of advice: Embrace change, because you never know what’s around the corner and don’t settle. The day you settle for less, is the day you will get less.

Leo 2016 Planetary Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Mark your calendars! Per Space.com the next exciting astronomical event is the Aug. 11-12: The Perseid meteor shower! The Perseids are considered among the best of the annual meteor showers, thanks to their reliability and high rates of up to 90 “shooting stars” per hour. This year’s peak will occur well after the moon — which will be just past first quarter — sets around midnight. [A good viewing dark sky!] There is also a possibility of a meteor outburst, which might produce an enhanced display this year. [Amazing Perseid Meteor Shower Photos of 2015]

Leo TimeLine!

Mars finishes the entire retrograde cycle August 22, then it’s on we go onto new adventures well founded by the sorting we have been doing since February!

The next outer planet combinations are August 12 and 13 when Jupiter makes the third and last opposition Chiron in Pisces and inconjunct Uranus in Aries! This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. 2016 opened with the second of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with the first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposition Uranus, inconjunct Chiron – different sign, reversed aspects! What we are doing now paves the way for the next vantage point. In Libra we can incorporate our findings and these new living skills into our relationships! See more!

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Leo!

Leo Lions Nuzzle

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. There is an affinity between Capricorn and Leo. They both like the best! Capricorn is proud of that Leo verve and is warmed by their love and inspired by their vitality! Leo is proud of their top of the mark Capricorn and glad for their financial successes because Leos do love to spend whether it’s the latest fashion or a fine gift! Pluto, however, is a ‘square’ planet to Leo. Time to stop that frivolous spending, take care of the business at hand for now, and they see that as long term business. Leo is called to teach techniques of constructive resolution that will bring meaningful real change. It is not so much of a performance anymore. It is a joining of forces. Leo is a strong sign, will carry a good weight and has staying power.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Leo loves playing different roles, finding the SELF as it exists in many beings. Pisces and Neptune are off to the side of Leo’s opposite Aquarius. Neptune distracts Leo a bit from its center, giving a glimpse of a different vantage point. Neptune softens Leo’s will that Leo may put on others, the demands Leo may have. At the same time, there is a blooming of further Faith to let things happen in their own time as others start to see some of the same things Leo sees as possible. Leo doesn’t give up and Neptune flutters the subtle fan, tidally washes the way for dreams to come true. Stay steady in the quest; wait for it.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Uranus is the planet of Leo’s opposite sign Aquarius! Step across the divide, oh Wild and Fair Ones! Aries won’t let sleeping Leo cats lie! Uranus in Aries is a spark so brilliant that it gets even bright Leo’s attention! Leo likes doing things their own way and classy too, so Aries may seem a little loud and undignified at times, and pushy. Hmpf. Uranus doesn’t especially care what either thinks, just as long as we are all free to make change. Uranus and Aries both love waking people up, and they enjoy prime prey like Leo that is often fixed in their own opinions and proud of it! But Leo likes big and better, and more and showy, so ultimately they are in! Bring the chariot, we’re going to the fundraiser ball!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Leos are lovers and successful business is good for marriage, and lovely for Leo spending! Chiron, like Neptune, is askew across the table, so to speak, from Leo. It draws Leo aside and whispers about old love lost, how we may have believed it was all our fault, how that makes us doubt our choices even today. It calls us to understand others have history and troubles too, some even from past lives. We are in this together. Even if we are apart, our thoughts and Spirits intertwine. Soothing and letting go may be our best assurance of clearing the way for future love. It calls us to be with Souls that are healthy, living as we would like to. We can get used to what’s waiting in our step forward into the hitherto unknown. It will take a wee bit of courage.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Leo is the sign of teenagers, parties, learning how to be yourself. It’s a crucial time for the teenager in us all! Too much discipline and Spirit is broken. No discipline leaves us abandoned, with no reasonable boundaries. Saturn is Father Time; Leo is Sun’s sign, Father Sun. There is innate Selfness that is self defining. But grieving over a lost Father, the love of one’s Father, is a taint that can shadow one’s life. If you are a Father, know how much that can mean. If you are the child, thank your Father. If you are Fatherless, be your own in a good way best you can.

Sagittarius and Leo are both teacher signs. Leo teaches about Self; Sagittarius, the last fire sign, teaches us how to Seek and teach the teachers how to teach. Both are looking for volume, to amplify, expand. Christmas EVE day, Saturn in Sag will trine Uranus in Aries the first of three times, together harnessing the power of groups of leaders. They are antipodal planets, Saturn of constraint and conservation, Uranus of freedom and flinging the wild bits across the Universe! One is shelter and structure, the other is the primordial explosion into the unknown, catapulted into awakening! Leo is the mid fire sign, so you with planets 18 to 21 degrees Leo will be in Grand Fire Trine with Saturn and Uranus at that time! As Saturn and Uranus are opposites by definition, Sun and Uranus are of opposite Signs! Uranus is the connecting planet. Acceptance of difference, integration of odd talents will be called for to make the harmony of the Grand Trine flow. All fire signs are independent, or want to be, and have an uppity quality. Egos and hefty Spirits will need to appreciate each other’s diversity to gather for effective results. The opportunity is to put every single one to work!

Jupiter in Virgo Virgo is the sign after Leo, tending and organizing their life, making sure their health flourishes, develops skills for good living. Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, the fire sign after Leo. There is a playful quality between them, vying for first place, seeing how far each will go! They like teaching and learning, and Virgo loves to do on the job training. Experience in the field is invaluable. Virgo recognizes raw talent, and helps Leo hone their delivery, gives facts and data for their credibility. Soon, Leo’s presence outdoes their mentor!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Leo is thrilled and flattered. At times they are humbled by Libra’s finesse, but then Jupiter sometimes is a little blunt, so if not too offended, everyone can just lay back and be themselves. However, Leo and Jupiter are prone to exaggeration, if not downright lies, or be misleading when it makes a better story to tell, so be careful who you tell what to and how you tell their story in turn! Be ready to clean up a few little messes, hopefully not a lawsuit, though if it is yours, you are likely to win if your chart connects well to this combination. Jupiter rules races, especially horses, and is often lucky. If Leo gets the scent, they love to gamble, will take the chance, and just might win that too!

They are super traveling companions, enjoy different cultures, the zest of survival in difficult circumstances. Leo is excited to get outside the usual frame, and their creative expression is levered right up out of the box, their market broadens! A higher view reveals remarkable potential. Special relationships focus the insights. What used to be a mystery, an unspoken wondering, is now delightfully part of your new Self! Libra is partnerships, marriages, could be a divine Sweetheart!
 

Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture!

Have a great new year!

And Sir Mick ain’t quittin’! At 72 this rocker and his 29-year-old girlfriend, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick are expecting his 8th child! Leo’s love kids and virtually are kids in adult clothing!

Leo children are athletic and courageous, no tree too high! They are leaders of their mates, and are often kindly to one who cries or is alone. The other side of the coin is shy beyond words and may take years to grow out of it. Either way, they are known to be stubborn and want what they want, and they want it now! As they age, they can be more patient, but they will steadily advocate their position until they win out.

Encourage all Leos to be creative at every age! Put the camera in their hands. Give them the water colors, the guitar. Put them in the play. Dress-ups and fantastic hair are terrific fun! Give them the dance shoes. They will give spirited shining performances and be featured at the gallery! They are the Full Moons of our night skies!

Teens and young Leos may be impatient with schooling, but the right classes and instructors will keep them on the edge of their seats. They need praise and recognition to thrive to maximum. Their downfalls may be being bullies or arrogant. Both factors are fear based, and Leos want to be loved, adored. They need to know we all have limitations, including them, and that’s ok. We can be loved just the way we are when we are as we are. And sometimes we all make all too human mistakes. It helps if they know it isn’t always their turn. Also, there’s a distinction between being admired because you breathe and admired for what you have contributed. Both are nice.

Careers need to be large enough to accommodate their talent! As little ones, don’t overwhelm them with your expectations, but don’t be surprised if they want more than what you would let them have. As young people, doing something that makes their heart sing makes them learn fast, achieve higher positions early on. They can bring rave reviews to your business. Send them to teaching and coaching seminars. Let them be on their own enough to find their own style of leadership.

Heart and Spine. Health and robust activity requires a good heart and a strong spine. Standing up to your life and meeting it with love, being who you ARE, loving yourself are gifts. Being ‘selfish’ is an exploration of your character. When you are in your personal niche, it becomes self realization. We create ourselves as we go, changing, flexing our latest muscles, feeling good about life.

As elders, Leos can stand tall in their Spirit. They are revered, respected. There is always some notable feature. Elder women may be classy dressers. Elder men may be quite the gentleman, always treating their woman like a lady.

Live deep, stand tall, love well!

Aquarius ~ Like None Other!

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians!

Aquarius David Bowie Gentleman

He will be missed. Jan 8, 1947 David Bowie was not your average Capricorn. Born at 9 AM (from him) Brixton, London, UK, he had a Leo Moon and Aquarius Ascendent. Ziggy Stardust was a natural aka name for him! The symbol for Aquarius is Ziggy, and Aquarius rules the Heavens, Stardust!

He lived up to his Ascendent. Aquarians are #1 as singers; he had a rare voice and used it uniquely. Per Wiki, in a 2014 analysis of 77 “top” artists’ vocal ranges, Bowie was 8th, just behind Christina Aguilera and just ahead of Paul McCartney. Aquarians live for enlivening, awakening, change, blazing trails into the formidable great Unknown! Aquarius is the last Air sign, rising above the general congregation of Souls. Air sign communicators are intelligent, quick on their feet, even brilliant! Aquarians research, then add their own notes, speculate on possibilities well beyond their time. At the very least it is entertaining, and often they are intuitively right – gifted with clairsentience!

Sun in Capricorn in the 12th House, Bowie was a talented composer Musician, often worked at Night. He has been referred to as a chameleon, I prefer to call him a Magician. His career was ‘marked by reinvention, musical innovation and visual presentation.’ The 12th has to do with being visionary as well as our vision. An early injury left him with different color eyes with different size pupils. I interpret that to mean different ways of seeing the same thing at the same time, seeing differently than the average ways of seeing. This added to his unique Aquarian appearance.

With Moon, Saturn and Pluto, together in Leo, he was a superb performer, actor! With full heart he brought us the colors of the living brilliance of Aquarius! Sometimes the 7th house appears effeminate, beautiful. Coupled with his eccentric Aquarian freedom of expression, his sexuality was questioned, yet he met his match with his Somali-American model wife Iman! Capricorn’s, Saturn in the 7th house, are noted for long term commitments. They were married and survived scandals for 24 years! Iman’s birth time is not known, but they seemed well matched! Her chart

Mars with his Sun could be ferocious at times, exactly as Spirit intended. Mars is what’s new, so he often tried new things. For example, he was a fluent player of the keyboard, harmonica, saxophone, stylophone, viola, cello, koto, thumb piano, drums, and percussion. Though from many beginning failures, he made his ground! He became, IS still, a leader.

Typical Aquarian philanthropist, Bowie headlined global concert tours in support of many causes: Abuse, at Risk/Disadvantaged Youth, Children, Disaster Relief Education, Family/Parent, Support, Health, Human Rights, Hunger, Poverty, Weapons Reduction, Women. It is said Bowie and wife Iman remained up-to-date, endorsing as many foundations as they possibly could to improve the world.

An unforgettable 69 years. Powerful aspects took him on the next lap of his journey. Pluto, both Death and Resurrection, was at his Mars/Sun; Uranus was square them. Lazarus is truly a fitting name for his final muiscal! The world was shocked at the news of his passing. His passing was unique in that he made his final album and video, clearly about death, while he was secretly dying of Cancer. They were released on his birthday. He ‘spoke’ of death, gave his messages, said his farewells to all, a ‘parting gift’ to the world. On his Birthday he was on his feet, dressed to the Nines in a suit by New York designer Thom Browne, with a huge à la Bowie smile on his face, having his last photographs taken. He left us two days after his birthday, the day after a New Moon.

RIP David Bowie. Gentleman, creator, ferocious, courageous, the Ultimate!

See his chart! I speculate he was born at 8:53 AM, putting Venus in the 10th, 0 Aquarius ASC.

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aquarius! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Aquarius is just a step away in the next sign. It is up to Capricorn to create a lasting foundation, platform, to support the risks that futurist Aquarians take for us. Cappies need to be sure there are windows for opportunity, there is freedom for invention, change is embraced for the upgrading of existing systems. It is up to Aquarius to request this support in a friendly manor, respectfully inviting Capricorn to share in the amazing benefits. Not only must Aquarians have their ideas, but use their genius to also collaborate to secure ways for them to be implemented! As part of our community, professional associations, worldwide networks, together, results can be phenomenal!

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in a water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Aquarius, is the sign behind, an air sign. Though a fixed sign, the air mass that surrounds our planet, and the heavens above that will always be there, electric Aquarius is considered to be unpredictable, its element Uranium unstable, sometimes explosive and shocking! Neptune and Pisces are considered mutable, moveable, also unpredictable, but not so obviously. Both subtle and sudden radical change are possible in the same moment. If you don’t like it you might call it insidious. If you were hoping and waiting, you would be cheering! Either way, there may be delicate moments, some better left alone, others long awaited turning points of compassion and understanding, insight and enlightenment!!!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius and Aries is a sextile sign! Air feeds fire, and both love change NOW! Aries is one to one, often grassroots campaigns with an underdog champion! Aquarius takes the whole tribe, or gathers all the champions, makes an organization, declares a class action suit! Aquarians are looking for sweeping cultural change! With the pioneering high spirit of Aries and the brilliance of innovative Aquarius, there is inspiration in every moment! Media, Internet, education are a tremendous gateway. Young leaders are making a lasting difference!

Chiron is also in Pisces, soon to be in the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aquarius is redefining our relationships with each other – ie gay marriage rights, our concepts of spirituality, friendships are different with social media, we are truly becoming world citizens. Financial systems are more and more affected by world conditions. It becomes more important to help each other as what happens anywhere affects us all. Political and religious differences wreak havoc, yet many maintain a compassionate stance, accommodating as much as possible, supporting refugees from life threatening conditions. Given time, there will be more union though it is also the function of Evolution to have differences that enliven the process, shake us free from old ways.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016 as it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, each three times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet now, but was the old time ruler of Aquarius. Aquarius is still considered to be a cool sign, even uncaring when less personal, busy taking on the giant concepts of the Planet, steeped in its research and invention. Best to be on the same page with your mate, work together, have common goals! Saturn makes commitment to a visible purpose in Sagittarius, wants tangible results. Another fire and air combination. The Spirit of Sagittarius seeks a benevolent and most progressive outcome. It is thrilled to join Aquarius in taking it as far as they can go! It goes further yet since Saturn in Sag wants to be able to teach the process, spread the good word far and wide! Aquarius may have moved on to another venture, but the seeds it leaves behind are alive and well.

Jupiter in Virgo is quite ok with Aquarius inventing right and left, improving working conditions, implementing electronic efficiency systems, saving lives at the nursing station, offering inspiring planting information, sitting in on genius brainstorming! What is frustrating is that Aquarian independability when they are not on time or don’t show up, forgot, sorry, or their friends hang out and nothing, absolutely nothing, gets done. Aquarians know they can trust their Virgo friends to get the job done, but are generally not so enthralled with nattering over the teensiest details. It worked? Of course it worked! Great, next! Earthy Virgo can do the daily biz like a champ. Airy Aquarians were born to move about, follow fresh scent on the wind. They are easily bored and like new people, the more different the better, a challenge!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is SO social and so is Aquarius! Libra is more proper; Aquarius doesn’t care as long as you have something interesting to share! Jupiter wants to learn, and Aquarians have astonishing points of view, sometimes tumbling Jupiter from their opinions. Jupiter likes a good jaunt into the Future, and Aquarius was already there! Libra likes to keep a balance. If you look far enough, you will see that Aquarius, shocking at times, mightily disturbing the status quo, is actually on a trajectory designed to get you there. They don’t always know that themselves, but they really are on course, a kind of balance of their own. Libra can buffer the radical shifts. Aquarius keeps Libra from being complacent and staying too long in the peacekeeping mode. Divine excitement makes Librans dance on their beautiful toes, help forge a political and legal Path the changes need so they can happen! Aquarius, looking back, laughs with delight, at the edge of the next encounter!

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Aquarius ~ Like None Other! 

Aquarius Woman Under Heaven Air Sign

There are a lot of Ex words, and many, meaning utterly and thoroughly, apply to Aquarius!

Exciting, exhibitionist. No rules apply to your Aquarian. They are spiritually genetically different under Heaven. You can never really know them because they change as you look at them. They are always becoming. It’s not a plan, it just happens and you happen to be there too. Without realizing, you change when they do, because you saw it! They prove we can all change with every breath! You may love them a few minutes, be a little scared sometimes. Who was that you married?! Really?! And you are never bored. As they skitter about, sometimes you connect, others you don’t. But there is freedom for both of you in the between spaces! Rest, time to think, feels good. They are lot to absorb, accept, in one neverending package. Fascinating.

Excellent, exemplary, exalted. That amazing brain and their wild card capability takes them to the highest places ~ research, invention, out of the box! They don’t hold back when someone tells them it isn’t regular, but are exultant in their pursuits because it’s not! Rebellion has its merits! When they are supposed to be at their award party, they forget to go because they are working on the next project, fully immersed, divining the details from the ethers.

Extraordinary, exceptional, exotic. Unique has meaning from weird to marvelous beyond words! The range of difference is extreme! There are otherwise non functional savants, to beings with so many skills it would take the rest of us several lifetimes to achieve them! Sometimes they look so different you would never miss them duck walking down the street in neon colors! Others are so ordinary appearing they are completely camouflaged among us. Being shocking is one of their favorite venues. Never underestimate your fellow.

Exchange, exclude. The learning curve when you are with an Aquarian is just about straight up! All aboard! You keep up or are left behind. Get what you can, thank your lucky stars for even a brief encounter. If you keep up, keep your eyes open wide and catch every molecule flying your way! Stardust is their element! They don’t really ever mean to be exclusive. It’s just that their ON button is ON! Air is their astrological medium, and they are the third, final, of the air signs, and they know how to breath in and let the air go right through them. They pick up all the nuances on the huge tide of Being, pull them together in a prescient framework of ideas. They have huge capacity, we call it intelligence, but it is even more than that mechanical function. They perceive what it means through the generations, where it is going.

Extrasensory, Exponential. The psychic skill of their sign is called Clairsentience, clear knowing. As an Air sign, generally, there is a quality of detachment. In Aquarius they think without so much personal need. There is less judgement, concern for what other people think. They enjoy the facts, free of politics, wealth, laws of science. A new order is possible, probable since Evolution never quits. The more they change, the more change can happen as each facet creates an avenue to another!

Extraterrestrial! Being above and beyond, are perhaps the greatest beauty of Aquarius. Escape from the ordinary, Aquarians are leaders into the Unknown into a Future of uncharted dimensions. Flight has always fascinated us. Dreams of flying tantalize us to find our own wings, move our lives to a new level. Nothing like a great view!

If they were coffee, they would be the expressos of the known Universe! They exceed common standards with exuberance! We thank you, Dear Aquarian Friends, for taking us to the far, far places!
