Transit of Mercury 2006

The 2006 ECLIPSE as seen from Earth! Credit: ESA/NASA/SOHO

Nov 11, 2019 the Retrograde Eclipse crosses the SUN, 7:21 AM Pacific at 18 Scorpio 55! See the AstroLogical Chart below!

The first ten months of 2019 Neptune has been being prepared for the sister events, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! He has been activated SIX times, three by Jupiter’s challenging viewpoints. Neptune is stirred, no longer laying still. He may be on his feet like a Thich Nhat Hanh walking meditation or sitting in a dynamic meditation. For now he needs to be in a healthy awake, alert on duty condition. And there are three activations by Saturn, doing on-the-ground testing the principles Jupiter and Neptune have pondered, getting the kinks out to let it all flow smoothly. Neptune is a planet of being infinitely, delicately, richly sensitive, a giant receptor. In some ways it is indiscriminate and that is good when a transmission of this solar magnitude comes through. Neptune doesn’t block any part of it; it comes through whole. Mercury rules Gemini, information, data, and Virgo analysis. Neptune rules the sign opposite Virgo, Pisces. It’s important not to judge, or try to make order of it, but just see it as it is, an order we aren’t yet used to. It must be untampered with so the original is protected intact. This Transit event will last hours, so Mercury and Neptune have to be strong. It will take months and years, maybe a lifetime, to understand in fullness.

The June 16, 17 and 18 events are particularly important since the 16 and 18 events are at the 18th degree, the one that links Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit of Mercury. The Full Moon on the 17th at 25 Sagittarius also acts as a receptor.

Mercury will cross the Eclipse degree 3 times. It’s first pass is Oct 17, preparation and tune-up. Second is the Eclipse Nov 11. Last is Nov 30, making the best place for it in our lives. Retrograde means another look, a review, a turn around and seeing from another direction. In Scorpio important matters of relationships, finances, and health will all be revisited. This encounter with the Sun will bring hidden things to Light, unexpected sharing, a magnitude of attention.

In Horary Astrology, a planet, but especially Mercury, conjunct Sun, within 17 minutes, is called Cazimi. This is an exact Cazimi, an Eclipse! It is considered fortunate. Mercury is at the heart of the Sun, strengthened by the Solar union, reforged! I find people with Mercury conjunct Sun to be mental giants, have an extraordinary brilliance! They are inspired communicators, amazing researchers, express themselves with intense vitality! The Solar battery is ON! Yes, they at times get to a point of a standstill, the machinery reaches max saturation, and down they go for that nap or the night, fall asleep at the desk. Done. But the switch flips and they are at it again. Their mind can work on long after the body quits. If you love someone like this, kindly put food and water in their way. They may take it in absentmindedly as their mind is so focused on the important matter at hand!

The last Transit of Mercury was May 9, 2016 in fixed sign TaurusSee about it! It was at 19 Taurus 25 retrograde. This one is just minutes opposite at 18 Scorpio 55, almost 19 degrees. Again, old Horary science comes into play. What about that 19 degrees?! 19 Scorpio was called the ‘dread degree’ of the entire zodiac! Many are born on 19 Scorpio and do fine. Clearly there are not terrible world traumatizing events that day every year. Yet, there are times, and for some people, it indicates severe challenge, possibly lifelong. One 19 Scorpio Moon woman never knew her mother, was in 13 foster homes and known for her volatile emotions. Events may be defined quite differently. Is it carnage or should we call it regeneration? Shall we hire the wrecking crew for things that completed their usefulness, clear the path for repurposing? Taurus is a sign of fertility and growth, and Scorpio is known for healing and regeneration! Both are known for strength – one for the power of life, the other for the power of rebirth. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. They can strongly clash neither giving an inch, yet often, with help of a third party, make peace and work powerfully together for common cause.

In the Ecliptic chart, the Moon is in fixed sign Taurus this time, the sign the Transit was in last time. It just passed over Uranus, the electrical spark of Life! Uranus is the holder of the Akashic Records, the records of the soul. In Taurus it has the will to survive, to be centered, alive and in harmony with Mother Earth, anchored in Peace. There is a deep sense of calm, a kind of trust in what is most organic in us. Our values for preservation are foremost. Climate change is holding a strong place in us. Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign, plus Mars in Libra sextiling Jupiter, suggest we have a lot to learn, a lot of connections to be made, a long journey ahead, many successes along the way. Many special cross cultural relationships will be formed, profound exchanges will be shared.

This conjunction, TRANSIT, is powerfully in fixed sign Scorpio of the dark, a keen observer who puts things together behind the scenes. Who honors you with complete confidentiality about personal matters – love life, finances, health. Who heals you at deeper levels, the levels of causality rather than a quick fix of symptoms…that will come back if the core isn’t healed.

Being an underworld sign, Scorpio is at odds with the Sun, the brightest Light there is. Better be clean, able to be illuminated and scanned by this bright Soul Scope. It’s like an x-ray by the Sun, your bones appear as shadows. Nothing escapes. If you pass the test, and it is only you that knows if you did, even if you are in denial, the Light of this magnitude shows truth that can’t be ignored. You get the glimpse and it haunts you until you fix it. It’s not just the client/patient that is getting the scan, but the healer and the link between you too! Honoring yourself and your various healers, and they you, is part of the scenario.

Since it is with Mercury, it is what we think (unspoken), what we say, how we say it, when, to whom, how we listen. Mercury is quick on its feet, able to make light of things, dodge bullets, but the Truth is still the Truth, real and part of us. It mulls it over, thinks and thinks about it until things settle down, and eventually, we relax, relent, accept. Good or bad, there’s a peace. At last we can get to work. Another level is now available.

The Sun sees what we thought were all our little secrets. And suddenly many of them don’t feel so important anymore. There comes a balance between our individual being and our purpose here in this Life, our place among our fellows. Personal wellbeing with our special idiosyncrasies makes us able to tackle some of the greater issues of Humanity. Scorpio can flick out intense ideas right between our eyes! In this case our mental Kundalini will be raised. Scorpio can take on some of the most uncomfortable things and people will listen. We all share basic fears, are grateful to be appreciated and heard kindly in our greatest sorrow, pains, and glory! The Sun Lights up these places we feared were too hidden, too awful or embarrassing to say out loud, yet here we are telling our story. Finally. It’s a great release. Healers are cured by the ones they help. They say we do what we need to learn.

Mercury in Scorpio is awesome! Here’s little Mercury out there talking to Sun! Well, he is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun anyway, used to being Sun’s companion and messenger. They know each other quite well. But we don’t really think of it as an exchange, yet it is. The Sun burns away the dross. Scorpio gets obsessed and a little dirt collects around him while he is focused elsewhere. Well that needs to be offloaded and the weary thoughts of over thinking let go. The channels get clogged and need to be cleared.

Then, Mercury makes more sense and responses are quicker, more clear to hear. Sun can’t help being his big Self, but we all gotta listen to our constituents. Mercury is the Scorpio rep this time! In exchange the Word of the Sun, the Heart of Light, goes out to all those people through his Mercury conduit. The conjunction is at 18 Scorpio 55, so those of us with factors in our charts at 15 to 21 will be activated. If you have factors in Scorpio at those degrees, it could be particularly intense. It won’t be just this Transit, but it will bring back memories of the May 9, 2016 Transit as well! Mercury is an air planet. You can bet it will be waffling about in your space. A feather touch here, a glimpse through the veils of time, minds touching, thinking together as One. Possibly there is a sense of urgency. Scorpio ever calls for amending, the longer vision, the seriousness of Life. It understands consequences as well as excellence.

Mercury is Retrograde again, as it was in 2016. There is unfinished business. People we need to reconnect with. Reevaluate, repair our status, have remorse and empathy for, forgive ourselves. There are reasons why they are no longer in our lives, but we may have forgotten and need to remember the lesson. We can be kinder but not need to be with them. Or we need to ‘pass them on,’ help them get to the next level with someone able to help them with their current needs that we can’t help with. Let go and go on.

Though the mythological Mercury is a man, Mercury is considered an asexual neutral planet, servant and messenger of the Gods, as such, simply a logical Vulcan-like channel. It is at times more interested in the function of gathering and transmitting information than the information itself. Each of us will put the spin of our own chart filter on the information we receive, yet try to keep your transmission of what you receive as neutral as possible. Go for the clean abiding principles rather than judgements of it. Since Mercury is of Gemini the Twins, think of it as our masculine Solar twin being seamlessly in Union with our Earthly feminine mind. When we are at One, there are no misunderstandings, no omits. We are complete, the merger Divine.

Children born on this day during the Eclipse will have magical Solar linkage called Cazimi. Their birthdays will hold a meaningful part of our lives. In old horary astrology, when Mercury conjuncts the Sun exactly like this, it was considered unfortunate, burned out, combust. But I am with David Coleman’s camp. For your perspective, he explains it this way:

  • Cazimi, [within 0° 17′ of the Sun] then, leads to the most enchanted state wherein the essential meaning of the planet becomes truly inseparable from our spirit. A Cazimi Venus, for example, could easily be a nymphomaniac or ‘sex addict’, for example. It could also be a person with near supernatural charm, grace or insight into the world of feelings.
  • Under the sunbeams a planet [8° to 17° of the Sun] is warmed and vitalised and somewhat or completely invisible, meaning it is commanding and infused with our inner light but somehow ‘on the fringes’, lacking in conventional status. It becomes ethereal, alluring, unusual and dreamy
  • Combust planets [8° of the Sun] are unorthodox and often willfully defy external direction because they are confident in their own inner unique grasp of the planets essential meaning. They are either aloof from or disinterested in the material agenda of the planet concerned but will still display its power radiantly and forcefully but somewhat enigmatically and individually.

Short answer from another point of view: when a planet becomes non-visible because of the Sun’s light it becomes less physical and more astral in focus.

Since Cazimi is within all three of these definitions, I say ALL apply! Look at your own chart to see if you are in any of these categories and if, how you think they apply.

Expect these Cazimi children to have extraordinary things to say, an exceptionally clever mind in some way, some form of remarkable dexterity, an unusual voice, a way of speaking about a special talent that holds our attention even when it’s not our subject! In certain topics they will be intelligent ahead of their age expectancy, and will surpass common thinking.

Maybe you can tell by the chart below there is about to be a Full Moon, in fact, the very next day! It’s the Frosty Full Moon spanning Taurus/Scorpio. Our arms are open wide, fully extended, receiving and sending. Moon is Mother guardian, in Taurus is for grounding. Scorpio stores the winter foods. Scorpio intuitively knows things of importance, protects them until Taurus can secure the gold bricks in the stout counting house.Chart We may not understand it fully yet, but instinct draws us to hold safe space for it.

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit are linked by degrees, the Sun, and both happen in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign!

Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER FOR WHEN PLUTO WAS CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path. That event was Oct 30, 2018 at 18 Capricorn 58. This one at 18 Scorpio 56 is only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun and the Sun is in SCORPIO for both! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observed that 2018 event and in 2019 is at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, keenly alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.


The exact conjunction is Nov 11, eleven eleven! That is a numerological pair of double numbers, considered master numbers. The number One represents leadership, inspiration, new beginnings, Initiation. In Scorpio that would mean starting over, revision or renewing a connection or contract of partnership. There is a knowing that two can do what one alone can’t do by themselves. Two Ones, standing together add to Two, a solidarity, like the second sign Taurus.

The exact time is 7:21 AM Pacific, just after Sunrise! We on the US west coast will be able to see it happening. The Sun is a big place, so it starts at Sunrise in Santa Barbara CA, 7:20 AM! For others it could be seen as long as 5 1/2 hours! It’s recommended to go to a high place, and TAKE YOUR ECLIPSE GLASSES!!!! The full transit period ends at 10:03 AM Pacific. Watch for the black drop effect, an optical illusion seemingly connecting Mercury’s disc to the Sun’s edge! It’s 100% done at 10:04 AM. Check out Dominic Ford’s simulation of how Mercury crosses the Sun at your location!

VISIBILITY! It is visible—weather permitting—for at least several hours in most of the world – US, South America, Africa, and Europe. You can see it as a tiny black dot silhouetted against the Sun’s disk. Find out if an astronomy group is setting up near you. Get tickets to the observatory! Find your favorite live stream channel! Find or get your viewing glasses now and put them in a place where you can easily find them! Clean up your old telescope. For viewing times at your location, click here at Time & Date! Enter your location.

On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032.

Be present as you can. It’s a Monday. Give gratitude, pray for guidance, healing for all, that you may be a clear transmitter. Be still and receive. Give thanks. If you can, write down or record your thoughts, request they be anchored in your Spirit. Share any message you feel you can. Remember, we are in this together, many Souls receiving. You may have a piece that needs to be coordinated with one or more others to gain full understanding and expression of the message to others. Thank you. Blessed be.

This is a profound exchange of information between us and the Heart of Light! Each person is linked to this chart in their own way, or not at all, though that isn’t likely since the many factors involved are across so many degrees. Each of us has a part in some way. Thank you for you and your part.

And this isn’t all. Nov 19 Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER! For such long term events, these sister aspects, Transit and Jupiter at the Galactic Center, so few days apart, are virtually happening together! Please see about Jupiter at the Galactic Center!

Famous People Born On November 11th
  • Environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio, 44. (Actor, Film Producer)
  • Demi Moore, 56. (American actress)

Famous People Born On November 19th

Retrograde Eclipse across the SUN, 8:12 AM Pacific at 19 Taurus 25!
See the Astrological Chart below!

Transit of Mercury 2006

May 20 note: This is worth reviewing because June 3 Mercury is again at the TRANSIT of MERCURY degree, 19 Taurus, the third and last time, the day before our Gemini New Moon June 4!

Be there! The entire transit will be visible in the western part of Europe and Africa, as well as in the east of North America, and in South America! Western Africa has the best weather in May. It lasts 7 1/2 hours, crossing retrograde, East to West.

On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The last planetary Solar Eclipse we had was Venus Retrograde in Gemini June 5, 2012. The last Mercury eclipse was Nov 8, 2006 at 16 Scorpio. The May Mercury eclipses are about half as frequent as November transits, but are bigger because Mercury is Aphelion, farthest from the sun. They occur at Mercury’s South Node. The next TRANSIT of Mercury will be Nov 11, 2019. After that, it’s 2032!

Mercury moved into Taurus April 5, 2016, the day Venus, Taurus’s planet, went into Aries. The Moon occulted (eclipsed) Venus, Taurus’s planet, April 6 and the Sun squared Pluto. Mercury went deep into the New Moon April 7 at 18 Aries. Several deep aspects together. Mercury’s entrance into Taurus has some weight.

In Taurus, Mercury the Messenger is sitting with the Buddha, with Mother Earth. He is content in his skin, loves animals and their beautiful fur. Slowing down in Taurus, coming out of Aries, is quite a pace change, at first impatient, but soon adapting to the rest, being able to observe more of the periphery, the framing, perspective, centering, peacefulness. There is absorbing in addition to seeing. It’s a richer experience that way, though it can also make Mercury feel heavy when he is usually a skimmer and a butterfly flit about. Passing information along is more his venue rather than everyday common sense. But once there, he lends considerable intelligence to simple things, speeds up the processes, links and integrates them for further benefit! He’s a natural liaison. Seeing the Taurus values he becomes an appreciative spokesman.

Mars retrograded April 17, is way slow, taking his time going back from 8 Sagittarius to 23 Scorpio. Action takes a decided turn, the point man suddenly changes, possibly no longer interested. A project is left undone or up for serious revision. Or, Mars steeps himself in the depths of his intention to find the purity of his purpose, the internal strength and resources needed to get past a threshold. The teaching schedule and topics are shifted, the destination is uncertain. Philosophies are being challenged. Mars turns Direct, forward, in Scorpio June 29. May 9, the Transit of Mercury, occurs early in the retrograde when Mars is at 5 Sagittarius, pondering the options, confident of the possibilities. At the time of the Transit of Mercury, he is making no aspects to any other planets, so at that time he stands alone, unfettered, free and clear.

The TRANSIT Eclipse happens during the concurrent Mercury and Mars Retrograde! See Mars Retrograde! See Mercury Retrograde!

Mercury direct in Taurus was first over the Transit point April 19, the day the Sun entered Taurus and 3 days before Earth Day. Taurus is the sign of Earth. Clean up your antennae! Make sure the link to your channel is ready. Write out your thoughts, what you would like to receive, your intentions, what you will do in preparation. If you meditate, seek access to a sacred communion symbol, a centered Peace. Find a still place that will trigger your ability to receive as much as possible. Let go of fears. You will be graced perfectly as you can be. You are perfect just the way you are.

However, if by nature you are an exuberant fiery spirited person, quickly clear your channels, ask for guidance to be given your part. I’m all for jumping up and meeting it halfway, arms open wide, laughing all the way! Whichever you are, if your birthday is May 9, we are especially counting on you!

  • Mercury retrogrades April 28 at 23 Taurus, makes the May 9 Transit at 19 Taurus, turns Direct/forward May 22 at 14 Taurus. Mercury is well placed in Taurus for this event. Taurus, an Atlas, is a super stable strong sign. The Sun bathing Mercury is in total Light, being infused with a mega message, requires a sturdy vessel, one that can hold and sustain that Light, keep it safe. Taurus, the sculptor, the ceramic bowl maker, looks for the natural fit. Steady in the Light is a perfect phrase for this event. Jupiter goes Direct, turns forward, just 3 hours before the conjunction of Mercury and Sun! Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, the sign opposite Mercury’s maiden sign Gemini. While Mercury is information gathering and communication techniques, Sagittarius gives it meaning, direction and purpose. Sagittarius travels and carries the best with it place to place. It teaches wherever it lands. Considered a friendly optimistic lucky sign of fame and good fortune, we are so blessed to have it’s planet moving forward and carrying the messages of the TRANSIT of MERCURY far and wide in a positive frame of reference! Jupiter in Virgo, Mercury’s other sign, will strive to keep the insights unblemished, pure and accurate, send them out where they will be well tended, spread further.
  • June 3 Mercury moves forward across the Transit position the third and last time. If you were tuned in, your chart aligned with the Transit, there has been a lot to think about. Taurus has to do with your Body, our most precious possessions, Earth herself. Perhaps now you have more words to express your comprehension of what happened. Taurus being a fixed sign, an earth anchor, a sign of fertility, will hold these thoughts in safekeeping for a long time to come. They will be cherished, guarded and grown. Save the seeds and keep on sharing.

Mercury and Sun are at Mercury’s South Node (not the Moon’s South Node). It’s sometimes thought that South Nodes are where a bad was in past lives. Mercury in Taurus could have been a selfish thinker, all about possession, a pickpocket. But some also think that what we did, we did so bad, we did it good, and have a super talent to use when now used in a good way. Instead, they could be a grant writer, a museum curator, a clever organic farmer who talks to the plants and animals. So for Mercury, in this case, perhaps the specialty is holding consciousness, the link to, the messages of Sun, Sol, Soul. Because Taurus takes possession, things will be slowed down to a pace people can stand. New ideas will be less frightening, we can get used to them. They will be given with patience and kindness. We will be graced with gentle gifts as we grow, soon ready to handle more. Mercury is keen about estimating current capacity, and makes sweeps of the territory to see what’s changing and what’s up next. Truly a useful talent. The May 9 super infusion, will be a wellspring, giving us a synthesis of valuable inspiration for our world today.

Not only is Mercury at his South Node, but the Mercury eclipse Sun is trine the Moon’s North Node at 19 Virgo. Things from Mercury’s past of many life times will do a rubber band snap into present tense, just like in a time machine, now in the cloak of current times! The organization of life and good business are offered updates that transform us from mundane procedures to extraordinary services and production. Virgo irresistible! Time to let go the old, soup up the new! The Virgo North Node steps up, sees that quality nutrients, regular care are provided, that all is well maintained in top form.

What about that 19 degrees?! 19 Taurus, the degree of the Eclipse, is opposite 19 Scorpio. In old Horary astrology, 19 Scorpio was called the ‘dread degree’ of the entire zodiac! Many are born on 19 Scorpio and do fine. Clearly there are not terrible world traumatizing events that day every year. Yet, there are times, and for some people, it indicates severe challenge, possibly life long. One 19 Scorpio Moon woman never knew her mother, was in 13 foster homes and known for her volatile emotions. Events may be defined quite differently. Is it carnage or should we call it regeneration? Shall we hire the wrecking crew for things that completed their usefulness, clear the path for repurposing? Taurus is a sign of fertility and growth, and Scorpio is known for healing and regeneration! Both are known for strength – one for the power of life, the other for the power of rebirth. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. They can strongly clash neither giving an inch, yet often, with help of a third party, make peace and work powerfully together for common cause.

Children born on this day during the Eclipse will have magical Solar linkage called Cazimi. Their birthdays will hold a meaningful part of our lives. In old horary astrology, when Mercury conjuncts the Sun exactly like this, it was considered unfortunate, burned out, combust. But I am with David Coleman‘s camp. For your perspective, he explains it this way:

  • Cazimi, [within 0° 17′ of the Sun] then, leads to the most enchanted state wherein the essential meaning of the planet becomes truly inseparable from our spirit. A cazimi Venus, for example, could easily be a nymphomaniac or ‘sex addict’, for example. It could also be a person with near supernatural charm, grace or insight into the world of feelings. Under the sunbeams a planet [8° to 17° of the Sun] is warmed and vitalised and somewhat or completely invisible, meaning it is commanding and infused with our inner light but somehow ‘on the fringes’, lacking in conventional status. It becomes ethereal, alluring, unusual and dreamy. Combust planets [8° of the Sun] are unorthodox and often willfully defy external direction because they are confident in their own inner unique grasp of the planets essential meaning. They are either aloof from or disinterested in the material agenda of the planet concerned but will still display its power radiantly and forcefully but somewhat enigmatically and individually.
  • Short answer: when a planet becomes non-visible because of the Sun’s light it becomes less physical and more astral in focus.

Since Cazimi is within all three of these definitions, I say ALL apply! Look at your own chart to see if you are in any of these categories and if you think they apply.

Expect these Cazimi children to have extraordinary things to say, an exceptionally clever mind in some way, some form of remarkable dexterity, an unusual voice, a way of speaking about a special talent that holds our attention even when it’s not our subject! In certain topics they will be intelligent ahead of their age expectancy, and will surpass common thinking.

In this chart of the eclipse, the Moon is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! As you receive info, share it, disseminate, placing it where it can grow well and be shared on and on, putting the full breath of life into it! In astrology parlance, the Moon is Void of Course, making no aspects with other planets while it is still in Gemini. It is mature in its sign, unhindered, undistracted, free to receive, free to channel what it perceives! Perfect.

Two major outer planet aspects are part of the chart, both squares!

  • Jupiter is squaring Saturn, exact May 26. Jupiter in Virgo is always sniffing like a skeptic, sorting out what goes where, seeing if it really has use. Many things are interesting, but they have their own time and place along the road of life. Saturn in Sagittarius is not so interested in saving everything, may simply want space, yet sometimes instinctively puts it in the ‘Later’ category until its time has come. Together they may reframe certain information so others can get a glimpse of the potential and get on board with them. Jupiter loosens Saturn’s grip on old opinions with new data offered.  Jupiter is hopeful. Saturn is glad for more tools, the Builder at work.
  • Saturn is squaring Neptune, exact June 17. Saturn doesn’t know whether to consult the Mystic or throw him out! Neptune has intuited subtle guiding ideas, knows a lot about people that you would never guess. But there are those unpredictable artist or addicted moments as well ~ often ‘addicted’ to loved ones. Sigh. Insisting on expert specific counseling, programs can be costly, but the results may be well worth it. Saturn sometimes needs to learn when demands and stomping its feet will just never work. Some situations are not in our control. Some are broken beyond repair, or simply spent, done, over. Giving up and reasonable surrender are time saving talents. However, the new Light coming through Mercury may offer alternative possibilities. It will be wise to filter and integrate with current options as well. And sometimes when we all, one time or another, hit our personal bottom, we listen better. Humility and surrender are key. The viewpoint is different, and sometimes enlightening, from our knees. Getting to work may be the better choice versus dwelling in past sorrows, imagined tragedies. Onward.

Venus, also in Taurus, one of her own signs, has just sextiled that Neptune both still closely at 11 degrees! She has sweetened Neptune’s appearance and seen the values of his compassionate ways. Being pretty, strong, stubborn, adored and selfish at times, is not enough. It’s more than money or status. The Soul has to be happy. And working forever for things we want, needs restful Neptune breakaways to reassess where we have come to be. Big messages from the Sun God are cool, but they might need a little talking up. Neptune can help Venus shape the words with love, make new insights treasured.

Venus in this sextile with Neptune makes the Grand Earth Trine (blue triangle) a Kite formation, easing some of the stress aspects. Venus trines Jupiter, hallelujah, and Jupiter trines Pluto! That’s a money maker if I ever saw one! The messages of the Transit of Mercury, Eclipse of the Sun, will be blessed and grounded. Messages will come in at high spiritual levels as well as at the earthly how tos! The TRANSIT lasts 7.5 hours! Why not take the day off and truly Be There?!

Though the mythological Mercury is a man, Mercury is considered an asexual neutral planet, servant and messenger of the Gods, as such, simply a logical Vulcan-like channel. It is at times more interested in the function of gathering and transmitting information than the information itself. Each of us will put the spin of our own chart filter on the information we receive, yet try to keep your transmission of what you receive as neutral as possible. Go for the clean abiding principles rather than judgements of it. Since Mercury is of Gemini the Twins, think of it as our masculine Solar twin being seamlessly in Union with our Earthly feminine mind. When we are at one, there are no misunderstandings, no omits.

FULL Harvest Moon, LUNAR ECLIPSE – ASCENSION?!
New Moon – Venus Frosting!   

Full Harvest Moon, LUNAR ECLIPSE – ASCENSION?!
Sunday September 27, at 7:50 PM Pacific – 4 Aries 40

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon September 27 2015

Jupiter in Virgo’s, Saturn in Sagittarius’ 1st Lunar Eclipse!

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon DiagramThis image gives you an idea of the relative sizes involved in a Lunar Eclipse! Earth takes the Solar energy directly. Moon glows reddish. By definition, we have Sun and Moon opposite each other, but in no way are they equal! Sun is clearly dominant, yet, Earth and Moon are together, a system of their own, far enough from the Sun not to be pulled into the Sun. In their case, distance is the equalizer.

Most Full Moon’s shine brightly in our sky, lighting the land with their beauty. Moon is apart from Sun in the opposite sign, that sign illuminated as equally as the Moon can ever make it be! Separated, they each stand on their own merit. In the line up of an Eclipse, Moon is temporarily shaded by Earth from Sun’s rays. The Lunar energy is still there, but Sun’s energy is translated by Earth, reflected, bent by our atmosphere. We as humans, on the dark side of Earth, become transmitters, sending to Moon, and receiving from Moon without Sun’s direct distraction. Though Sun is bigger and brighter, the Moon takes precedence.

So I ask you to put your energy primarily with the Moon in Aries! Aries goes well with Saturn‘s now fellow fire sign Sagittarius. Moon has just left a trine with Saturn. Though the Moon & Saturn are of opposite signs, Cancer and Capricorn, a trine brings that energy of Mother/Father into harmony rather than be separate. Aries and Sag initiate and teach, enjoy sports, are thrilled to walk, race, a new and profound Path together. If the Ascension happens to YOU, it’s a good time to do it!

Moon in Aries gets adjusted by coach Jupiter in Virgo. Shortly, the Moon will be 150 degrees askew of Jupiter. If Aries doesn’t mind a quick pit stop, Virgo is well organized, Jupiter to the point, it’s done and good to go. Virgo has tips, Jupiter confidently cheers you on! Moon in Aries is a leader. Women get a head start. Children are quick to follow! Just keep a watch on them! Jupiter is inspired by Moon’s fearless quality, and writes them into the story as heroines! Perhaps they will travel together for a short time.

I like this traditional saying, ‘All that fall shall rise again.’ As with Persephone and Demeter, or from a fallen dry seed comes a green sprout bursting with new life! At this darkening time of year, it is good to make alliances, good to share. The Sun is moving forward to conjunct Mercury while Mercury retrogrades back to meet Sun! Kiss! Message exchanged and remembered. The exact conjunction will be made Sep 30 at 7:38 AM Pacific. In horary astrology the Sun this close with Mercury is called Combust. Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen. It can be read as burned out, weak, no mind of its own. Or it can be free of materialistic concerns, feel extraordinary power, defy orthodox direction due to its own natural knowing.

The third planet is Neptune! Sun is moving up to inconjunct Neptune Oct 1, while Mercury is retrograding back to inconjunct Neptune Sep 29. Jupiter was opposition Neptune Sep 16. The Lunar Eclipse keeps Neptune in play. The Sun and Mercury inconjunct peek in to see what Neptune’s insights are. They look for the magic, the imagined, the Vision! Neptune is not always so verbal, so the Sun and Mercury may be enchanted for awhile, sure that something will come. They have never quite seem something like this before. But if there is not enough ripple, they move on. Libra is a Cardinal sign, always initiating new relationships. Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is often more interested in other worldly dimensions, less so in the everyday social carryings on, less in unimportant chatter. They just may not be able to find a way to communicate with such a different way of being.

Mars is still considering its actions in view of its recent 10 day square with Saturn culminating Friday the 25th. You may have been humbled and be recovering from some road rash, as well as having rested a bit and feeling less tired and frustrated. Mars may be young and feisty, but old Saturn often still calls the shots. Mars was trying to offer a new time saving method though, so if you made Saturn take a few moments, you may have made an impression and be called back for another interview. But don’t let the sly elder do a Kokopelli trick and steal your ideas! Keep your attitude clean and respectful. No contempt or criticism. Rather, ask how can we do this?

The North Node in Libra is between Mars and Saturn, semisextile Mars, sextile Saturn. Time is of the essence. Saturn stabilizes, Mars offers action, Initiation. North Node seeks a balance of respect for experience and authority, and breaking new ground. North Node gets a little scared sometimes, Libra is unfamiliar energy, since the South Node, the Past, in Aries, ruled by Mars is the independent warrior. It’s not used to sharing power with others. But Mars acts on instinct, rarely second guessing itself, and the semisextile with Mars reawakens fierce memories of capable action! Since the South Node was their forte, Libra North dares to laugh, and apologizes gleefully as Mars sometimes bullies its way through. Someone had to do it! Finally! North Node sees the long term plan Saturn in Sagittarius has in mind, and feels more secure to take a chance. If conservative Saturn does it, anyone can, and probably should! Saturn may be gruff at times, but North Node Libra is learning manners and shows Saturn the benefits of a more polished performance.

Mercury is leaving a square too! It first squared Pluto in Capricorn Sep 9. The second square, the 24th, just 4 days before the Eclipse, is during Mercury’s retrograde. That reminder, second encounter, will have a certain potency if it affects factors in your chart. Mercury is still in close range. You think Saturn is sly, try Pluto in Capricorn! However, if there are any flaws, they hit the mark precisely! It can save a lot of time in the long run though changes could be costly. So if you are feeling a tad unsettled and don’t know quite why, nevermind the why and take a good look at the matter itself. No denial, no sweeping under the carpet. Better to take care of it now rather than have more consequences down the road when the third and last aspect is made after Mercury goes direct. That aspect isn’t until Oct 22, so it gives you time, but not a lot. The sooner fixed, the better the quality of your progress without that nagging feeling that something is riding in the background. See what could be stopping you, remove the thief of time. Rethink, rebalance, add some beauty to the mix! Seek new alliances of integrity.

So these two important preceding aspects to our Eclipse have broken through barriers. Mars wants to make offerings to Saturn and Saturn is wondering if he can accommodate Mars’ request. Mercury has been dancing around the Serpent Pluto in Capricorn, taking certain chances. Nipping at Pluto’s heals, there is a quickening of Pluto’s attention since few dare such encounters! Mercury is especially smart in Libra, too clever to be brushed off. Mercury just tries another angle until it finds the door. Mercury in Libra has lots of allies that are likely to know some of Pluto’s allies, so an introduction may be offered. Pluto would be wise to listen and court Mercury as an asset. Mercury in Libra may be ultra considerate, but they are also brilliant negotiators, and fast at it. Not a time to sign papers though.

For those of you steeped in the ASCENSION, and those of you who have never heard of it, please see Steve Beckow’s post at The Golden Age of Gaia. He references several people including Matt Kahn, Patricia Diane Cota-Robles and SaLuSa. Sep 26, 27 and 28 are all considered important dates, especially the 28th. Beckow discusses where the energy is coming from – gamma ray photon light from the Galactic Core (The Pleroma), with this intensity only once every 3,600 years! Here is Trish LeSage’s take on 5D Consciousness. There are 3 Waves of Ascension that are said to occur between now and mid summer 2016. Beckow discusses what if you don’t make the cut. And some of us won’t. We all have our part to play, before, during, and after.

Saturn, now in Sagittarius, will conjunct the Galactic Core/Center, at about 27 degrees, closely continuously March, April and May 2017 when Saturn retrogrades. It will form exact aspects twice during that time. It makes the third conjunction Nov 24, 2017. That will certainly be a telling time!

May all your journeys be blessed and you be blessed exactly as you are.

Libra New Moon – Venus Frosting! 
Moonday October 12, at 5:06 PM Pacific – 19 Libra 20

Libra New Moon Lunar Buddha Danielle Winter
By inspiring artist Danielle Winter, Bonn, Germany. Gratefully used by permission.

New Moons have two sides to them ~ one is unseen in the quiet in the dark time. The other is getting super charged with Sun’s energy, as Moon travels with the Sun. In Libra, Moon balances the key portals, modulates the frequency, exchanges on bright wavelengths, intricately and specifically connects all the right places! There is a satisfied hum of the Creator generator, and a warm radiant mystical glow that relaxes the fibers of Being to complete reception. Frisson and Fusion at once.

This New Moon, is delivering Libra’s message, seeking poise, the blending of both/all our abilities. It is the representative of fine art, ballet, exquisite symphony. It is the envoy of negotiation, collaboration, subtle creation, synthesis, separation, initiation. It acts alone in inspirational maximum integrity. It gives hand written invitations to ones worthy of spiritual partnership.

Uranus opposite in Aries has electrified the combination! Sun was exactly opposite the night before, 8:49 PM Pacific. Moon was opposite less than 2 hours before at 3:20 PM Pacific! Batteries charged, shaken and stirred, loosened for more of Sun’s infusion at 5:06 PM! Aries seeks independence, and Uranus freedom, but they are group initiation as well! Libra is social and seeks candidates for the cause. Libra parlays peace so more can participate. The potential swells like a tide, sweeping unique individuals together into contribution like never before!

Intelligent Mercury is now Direct, going forward, in Libra. He is with the North Node, letting go of old Aries fire and fight, looking for equality and sharing the best each has to offer, working together. Mercury is in serious sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius, thinking of the long term, wanting to make commitments, restructure the old patterns and rules. Mercury longs to learn more, signs up for specialty schools. Alliances can be formed with people in charge, mentors, elders. Experience makes a difference. Time takes precedence and things get done as attention is focused where it counts. Old debts, Karma, can be honored and stamped paid. Dharma, the work of the Soul, is recognized and hammered into fine metal.

Mercury is semisextile Libra’s ruler Venus, Venus now in Virgo. There is work to be done, people will be brought to do it. Details are in a beautiful array, art in production. Budgeting assures the project. Dietary health is key. Tell the story, write the blog. Use tasteful illustrations in marketing and advertising.

Venus and Mars will each join lucky Jupiter in Virgo! Mars is first Oct 17, Venus will join on Oct 25. Mars and Jupiter are confident and frisky together, might take a little trip to get new project materials or go off to a seminar on writing or caretaking, enjoy a health spa. A little productive time away feels good. A little caution is in order. Jupiter may need to be reminded of the budget, not go quite as far as the map shows road, be careful physically, less time in the Sun. Venus will still be back at the shop, but getting their calls, quickly calculates what is needed for the adjustments. When it’s her turn, she and Jupiter can be extraordinarily lucky together! They can make an irresistible super presentation! Time for a celebration party bringing collaborators and customers together for more sharing and excitedly brainstorming their next ventures! Expenses could be high, but likely well worth it. Plan it!

Venus won’t catch up with Mars until Nov 2! They will bring the gifts of their mergers with Jupiter to each other! They will be steadily organizing, finessing every situation and item within their ability to love up. What Venus wants, Mars wishes he could give! Where Venus makes beauty, Mars takes action. Mars in Virgo is not generally so sure of himself, but Venus loves him, gives him the handsome blessing and Mars is delighted! He gets the tickets and takes her to the Ball!

The New Moon is a lively and lovely springboard!
