Jupiter Square Pluto - Boston Marathon Veteran Earl Granville

The human spirit is alive and well! At the 2017 Boston Marathon Earl Granville, a veteran who participated on his running blade, was actually in fine shape and when his running partner couldn’t finish, he picked her up and carried her over his shoulders to the end.

x
This combination is now the second of a string of 6 aspects that started back in Oct 2016. They will all be going forward/direct, and finish, one by one, now through Nov 11. After this one, Aug 4, there are only four more to go. These last four are what I called the Holiday Four that all happened within 8 days, Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve 2016!

The first Jupiter square Pluto was Nov 24, 2016 in a challenging FIVE Planet T Square. It was the first exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election!  Read about the beginning of the new presidency: Link Not only did this aspect occur at a highly charged political time, but it is an intense political aspect!

The second square was exact March 30, 2017. Here are potent events that happened in the seven days preceding the square:

Mar 22 brought the Terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge and Houses of Parliament.
Mar 24 US President Donald Trump and Republican party forced to pull their attempt to repeal Obamacare.
Mar 28 Trump signs Energy Independence executive order undoing Obama climate-control measures.
Mar 29 UK Prime Minister Teresa May signs article 50 letter, sends to to the EU, formally triggering Brexit.

My retrograde post then was more about Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. 

The third Jupiter square Pluto is soon now, Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse.  As of June 20, Summer Solstice, Jupiter was at 13 Libra, Pluto at I8 Capricorn, already within 5 degrees of each other. They complete the square at 19 Libra/Capricorn. If this closely aspects your personal chart, especially you Capricorns, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out.

Jupiter is on a 11/12 year cycle, so every 3 years it will complete a conjunction, opening square, opposition, closing square, and return to conjunct again.

  • Jupiter last conjuncted Pluto, 12 years ago, once, Dec 11, 2007 at 28 Sagittarius.
  • The opening square was  from Jupiter in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn, 3 times through 2010/11.
  • There were 3 oppositions while Jupiter was in Cancer 2013/14.
  • Now we are having the third of 3 squares while Jupiter is in Libra 2016/17.
  • Next will be the 2020 conjunctions starting another 12 year cycle. Jupiter will be in Capricorn again, Pluto, the slowest moving planet, still in Capricorn.

You see, Jupiter/Pluto connections are not so rare. but Pluto goes into Aquarius in 2023. It won’t be back in Capricorn for another 248 years! That means this square is the last of its kind for a long, long time. The 2020 Capricorn conjunction then takes on special meaning. Before the Jupiter/Pluto exact conjunction, March 18, 19 and 20, 2020 there is a strong 3 outer planet conjunction as Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet leaves Capricorn! Mars the Activator is there, and on the 18th, Moon is too, making a 5 planet stellium in Capricorn! Jupiter will be at 22 degrees, Pluto at 24, Saturn at 29. This Aug 4 square is the formation leading up to it, breaking the old house down, opening gateways to the future of Capricorn!

Serious other events have occurred since that first aspect in Nov 2016. One of the results has been how much people are seeing it depends on each one of us to live what we want to see happen regardless of governmental dictates. We must truly live our ethics. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is stepping up to the plate regarding the Paris Agreements. States are signing on for the Paris Agreements. Cities are choosing 100% Renewable Energy policies. Worldwide we are seeing events that will continue to DO what it takes to make things better for the planet and ourselves and our children!

Jupiter in Libra wants growthful open relationships, to expand their network of alliances, to point to the future. As US government is pulling back from world relationships – with our neighbors in Mexico and Canada, stopping immigration, leaving the Paris Agreements, in fact not even wanting a relationship with our planet/climate control, abandoning protecting our cherished lands – it is causing other alliances to be born to take up the slack and not let progress die in its tracks. There is unity like never before.

Pluto in Capricorn symbolizes the backlash of the old guard (Capricorn), it’s not going down without a fight (Libra). The fact that it has to fight shows it is on its last legs. Some old ways are good and always will be. Some were instigated out of not realizing, not having foresight (Jupiter) of the expenditures of natural resources, extinction. Some came from pure greed (Pluto). It calls for massive education (Jupiter), person by person. Every relationship needs to be respectfully questioned. Both sides need to be considered. Good things will come from both. Pluto in Capricorn has powerful practical good sense, some very timely, some pure necessity. It knows what measures can be taken while the long term goal is in progress. It knows what to do so windows aren’t missed while Jupiter in Libra is out traveling, playing or socializing at art class. Yet we all know a lot of deals are made while playing golf! Sometimes relaxation helps the brain see the whole picture and find remarkable solutions! Both Jupiter and Pluto have a lot to offer.

We need to be steady in the Light while Pluto is in Capricorn until 2023. Six more years. Pluto 20 years in Aquarius, 2023-2043, will be exceedingly different! It could be extreme chaos, tremendous freedom, technology and innovation beyond belief, insanity or enlightenment! Stunning collaborative consciousness, the time when artificial intelligence becomes greater than human intelligence – singularity! The last time Pluto was in Aquarius, 1777 to 1799, individual rights and freedom were challenged by the French and American Revolutions. There may be a different kind of Revolution coming, but it will happen! We shall pray.

Right here at home, personally, healthwise, Jupiter is weight gain, hips/thighs. Libra rules the kidneys, lower back and ovaries, balance. Lower back pain, and problems caused by too much sugar or rich food are common complaints. Pluto is the detoxing planet, colon and eliminatory organs, sexual organs. It also has to do with seeing your therapist. Capricorn is bones, knees especially, and skin, being cold and tired, depression. Grief and loneliness can figure in. All of this together is a complicated venue. Take care of yourself, get expert care if you need it. Keep your balance, let go of real or imagined hurts. Eat well, find peace. Peace can be in meditation or taking a meaningful active stance. Ballet, Tai Chi.

It’s easy to see that relationships, for those of you having factors in your charts close to these degrees, may have some challenges. Jupiter in Libra can be forthright and not so clear about personal boundaries. They are curious, want an explanation, the whole story. That’s not Pluto’s nature. Pluto in Capricorn is conservative, cautiously naturally protects its own for many reasons, some of which will never be anyone else’s business. It’s not just their secret but the secret of another as well.

Matters of truth may come up. There could be sneakiness or flirting that misleads others to think there is deception. Innocently it may be getting that surprise birthday present, or it could be you have been in denial and there really is a problem – personal, financial, illegal. If time doesn’t tell the story in a good way, then you may need to part. Future wishes may be quite different and that’s exciting, or there really is no pleasure together because they are that different. Maybe you are no longer willing to live a half life, hoping, compromising, held back. Jupiter in Libra doesn’t want for anyone to hurt, but sometimes all that’s left is letting go. Pluto in Capricorn loves deeply and is no quitter, but natural endings do come along.

If things have been neglected, it may be time for that rebuilding your future! Your relationship may have a solid foundation and you all make a timely rescue and recovery! There may be more juice than there has been in a long time. Make time for each other, take a little trip somewhere special, give each other gifts. Maybe even renew your vows!

Careers may crumble and you may be glad. Finally that’s over! See about a restoration business or recycling. Check out financial businesses, medical, research, sciences, technical work. Look into building materials. Or look to the arts and social people businesses, travel, resorts, sports, imports, anthropology, universities! Combine these marvelous opportunities! You could go back to school. If finances are slim, do a little at a time. Take a good sharp look while this aspect is afoot. Breakthroughs are quite possible!

Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for Aug 4 and then for 2020. Together we can do it! Steady on.

March 3, 1913 Suffragists Women VOTE

These women worked hard to get us the vote ~ please honor them and yourself! VOTE!

This is THE Powerful Aspect of Election time! After the Oct 30 Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, this will be the predominant aspect leading up to the Nov 8 vote.

Then it becomes the 1st exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! 
There will be three. March 30, 2017 is the second, Aug 4, 2017 the third.

The next President will be elected under the auspice of this upcoming aspect Nov 24. It will bring a challenging first year. Further secrets of the candidate likely revealed, things kept from the President once elected. Vying power factions, major clashes. Mortality, morality and monetary matters will be on the line. There will be huge revisions, possible financial upheaval, ways of life will change, career shifts. It will call for a lot of clean up, healing and forgiveness, mending. Libra is the sign of polarities, and opinionated Jupiter sometimes exacerbates and enhances, for better or worse. It will take hard work, some quite tedious, getting over the hurdles. No laughing matter.

Jupiter is in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn. There will be much negotiating. Jupiter will call for the truth, but at times it is hard to pin down what truth is, or which truth it is. And sometimes it exaggerates. If overheard, someone may go off with a very wrong idea, quite hurt or angry. Sometimes making up a good story isn’t worth the trouble it can cause, the payback that comes later on. Pluto in Capricorn likely has old money well secured and will defend it, law or not. Serious secrets may come to light, with far reaching implications. Relationships, alliances will come and go. Partnerships may be a mixture of business and pleasure, discreet and not. There may be extremes of exchange, one has money, the other has talent. It will be wise to make temporary or short term contracts, with stated periodic revision clauses included.

Jupiter in Libra is so social and expansive, optimistic about connections from the get go! Pluto in Capricorn protects, swears privacy, conserves, can do the most with the least money! That can be a life saver, super sustainable, or simply a grumpy old undignified penny pinching grinch. Makes Capricorn nuts that Jupiter thinks money grows on trees when the Cap has worked so long for so little to no appreciation. It’s time to walk in each others shoes. Bless that Pluto Capricorn for saving so much time, money, materials, that the project can be done at all! Bless the Jupiter Libra that believes in them and knows if anyone could do it their Cappie can and will! Miracles right and left! The result is more powerful than anyone expected, and it’s just the model, the beginning for more!

Travel and schooling are called for but finances, scholarships may be hard to come by if this affects your personal chart. Do what you can, little by little until times get easier. Every bit will add up later. Don’t be surprised if you change horses mid stream. Breakthroughs are being made, some offerings being removed, others being added. Be ready to flex fast. Along with that, some of your beliefs may be challenged, and you may be fearful at first. If you need to fight for your rights, line up with others who have the skills and finances to help you. If your belief has lived its life, admit it and seek new connections if you are ready to move on. If you need to recenter, talk with some elders and give things some thought after their wise input. You will find your way. The world is changing and we pray for the wisdom to be in synchronicity with it in a good way.

Adding spice, the Moon conjuncts, is traveling with Jupiter! Moon in Libra is concerned and considerate, caring yet will give fight for injustice, if someone is an unfairly treated, a child or woman abused, home violated. Moon is women and feminine, in Libra is super intelligent, social, an able and impassioned fundraiser.

Also, Venus is with Pluto at the same degree! Moon and Jupiter square Venus too. Venus is Libra’s planet, wanting love and beauty, harmony when possible. But she wants what she wants, and sometimes that’s money and power when with Pluto and in Capricorn. She may be offered a career of a lifetime, make a merger with Pluto and a relationship tested or broken. Moon may cry, while Jupiter says you’re better off, let it all go. But what about the kids?! If Venus uses Moon and Jupiter in Libra, the top negotiating sign, to represent her, perhaps a deal can be struck. Maybe not a perfect deal at first, but it can be adjusted in time. There’s beauty, just not as we expected it to be.

Venus and Pluto are importantly at the point of the T Square. The focus is on them. Will Venus grace Pluto, soften his obsessions? Forgive him, exonerate him? Will Pluto give her the utmost respect she so deserves after all her hard work? They are conjunct the Fixed Star Vega! Vega is a pale sapphire star in the constellation Lyra, one of the three stars in the Summer Triangle. According to Ptolemy Lyra (a musical instrument) is like Venus and Mercury. It is said to give an harmonious, poetical and developed nature, fond of music and apt in science and art, but inclined to theft. Woops. Elsbeth Ebertin says: In a good cosmic configuration, Vega is supposed to give artistic talents especially for music and acting, but also a liking for good living. With eccentric artists, this may lead to a debauched life. Tied up with Jupiter or Venus, Vega is said to pave the way to riches and fame. However, if other influences [like squares] play a part, this wealth may be lost again. One can find Vega in birth charts of statesmen, politicians, persons of importance and influential persons with adequate aspects.

Uranus in Aries is the wild card. Jupiter and Moon are opposition to it, quite curious and astonished how tables may be turned in a fraction of a second! They are quick on their feet and the dance is on! New alliances will be formed, the public brought in. Venus and Pluto in Capricorn are square it. They are a tad old school, but are builders for the long term, realistic about what must be done in the time allotted. All are striving for a more inclusive world, a unity that holds power by the great numbers of people investing in change. If in accord for a cause, all of them will contribute masterfully!

Nov 24, when Jupiter squares Pluto, is the major T Square of 2016! There is an outer planet at each point! Moon and Jupiter in Libra square Venus with Pluto in Capricorn, oppose Uranus in Aries! Jupiter, Venus and Pluto are all potently at 15 degrees! See the red triangle pointing to the top left in 10th House section?! That’s it! Hang onto your socks! It’s a Cardinal T Square, and nothing stands still, major shakeup! Over the threshold you go. Fire up the afterburners at the crossroads! New connections sprout wings! Give this one time to settle and see what remains…. See more in the Holiday Four!

As to which Presidential candidate is elected, if you use the Polls opening chart, it may be a woman. The Moon is in Aquarius, someone ‘different,’ perhaps ahead of their time, sextile Venus in Sagittarius, an outspoken woman/feminine person. If you use semi-sextiles, the Moon’s last aspect in Aquarius is with Mars in Capricorn, a feisty elder with new ways. Jupiter sextiles Saturn but though they travel quite closely, less than a degree apart, Jupiter retrogrades before it makes the exact aspect, otherwise, I would say a successful robust elder. Close, but…. Whatever your opinions, PLEASE VOTE!

Please also see the pre-election aspect Jupiter inconjunct Neptune

Astrologers, students, see the candidates’ birthcharts and compare with the first Polls open in New Hampshire chart or the election chart of your choice, and the closing charts of the day if you wish.

Full Strawberry Moon – Sun Cancer, Summer Solstice!

New Moon  – Cancer Stellium, Sirius opposite Pluto, Grand Water Trine!

Full Buck Moon! – Uranian T Square Inconjunct Mars Links to Grand Water Trine!


Gemini Full Strawberry Moon, Sun Cancer ~ Summer Solstice!
Mutable Cross, Grand Square ~ Jupiter Trine Pluto!

Monday June 20, 4:02 AM Pacific at 29 Gemini/Sagittarius 33

Full Strawberry Moon

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each supported an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brought in Gemini, and Mercury turned forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opened the new cycle that set up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon happens just before, the same day the Sun goes into Cancer, and supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune was three days ago preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct. A few days after the 29th energy will be released, starting a forward momentum.

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that,  will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be. x

New Moon – Cancer Stellium, Sirius opposite Pluto, Grand Water Trine!

Monday July 4, 4:01 AM Pacific at 12 Cancer 54

New Moon Milky Way Lakeside Summer Camping Lighted Tent

It’s SUMMER! Grab family and friends, take the camera and let’s camp under the holy stars!

After our recent intensity of three outer planets aspects March through June, we can take time now to assimilate whatever challenges and joys came our way. Cancer can be broody moody, and that’s just fine. Someone’s got to do it. Think of it as a hen sitting her eggs. No telling what will hatch! We keep the ideas warm and incubating, we stay fertile. People walk by and add to our clutch. Our feelings swirl and another new idea is born! Cancers are masters at germination.

This is our first Moon after the outer planet aspects. These last 28 days Mother Moon has been collecting and storing all the bits from all the signs and culminations of the aspects, letting them roll in the bowl and merge, knitting their own kind of strength. Moon is full in her own way as she meets Father Sun. He enLightens the brew, energizes the union, new beginning are given the vital warmth to emerge!

Our Cancer New Moon is between Mercury and Venus also in Cancer! A four planet stellium plus the fixed star Sirius in Cancer! Mother Moon and Father Sun are snuggling among the pillows, likely canoodling. Spooning is a favorite whether together or sharing the sweetest meal. Children are often the hoped for outcome.

The New Moon is just over a degree approaching the fixed star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky in Canis Major, has figured prominently in legends all over the world. The Dogstar, aka the Heavenly Wolf by some, is closest to the Earth in Summer, especially July and August and can even be seen in daytime. That’s where the phrase “dog days of summer” came from. The Dogstar is one of the two hunting dogs of the great hunter Orion. Per constellationsofwords.com ‘Well connected, it promises fame, honors and riches, excellent for military, lawyers and civil servants. …in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. With Moon: Success in business, influential friends of opposite sex, favorable for the father, good health, beneficial changes in home or business.’ Cancers and dogs are noted for their loyalty and their fierce protection of our loved ones. Opposite Pluto, there could be real reasons to double check security at home and business locations. Prevention and mindfulness.

As much as we think of New Moon’s as a dark time, it certainly isn’t for the Moon and Sun! There is nothing but brilliant Light where they are together! Sun bestows his great heart of Light fully, entirely infusing Mama Moon, recharging her. She gives unconditionally, has the huge responsibility to manage the household – all that stuff, and all those dear humans – and needs every bit of that restoration. Father Sun is always giving as big as possible, not just to his own family, but to all! He carries a lot of weight. Mama puts her arms around him and tells him what a true hero he is and just like that, he is recharged too! Happens every 28 days, but in the sign Cancer more emphasis is on Mama Moon in her own sign. The next New Moon will be his turn in Leo, Father Sun’s own sign.

Mercury in Cancer has already been giving it a lot of thought…or should I say feeling?! Where to live, how to support the family, sometimes considering installing mother-in-law quarters, or a place for Grandma and Grandpa to help with the kids. It can be a good investment to keep the elders happy and healthy, to make them know how much they are valued and still able to contribute. Mercury in Cancer’s intuition is fabulous at managing funds. Through its extensive family and community contacts, it knows when to invest, what to invest in, when to hold, and always has the family’s long term needs in mind. There is always a fall back fund that is untouchable. Through those same contacts, business connections can be abundant and there can be multiple income sources.

Mercury at 9 Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces and inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. Neptune is water planet known for it’s intuition. Mercury is logical, more with the facts and data, while Neptune is the dreamer capable of visions that well exceed, transcend, any array of sensibility! Saturn wants to harness the horse and focus on the potential, build the dream step by step, using every bit of data Mercury can dredge up! It won’t always be a comfortable combination. That Saturn and Neptune just squared, a challenge aspect, June 17 for the second time. They will do so again, the last time, September 10. This New Moon will give some insights about how powerfully femininity, women, home & family, culture, feelings, factor in.

Venus in Cancer has a sweet smile and is blessed with an exceptional loving kindness. It can be a little acquisitive, and may be thought of as being selfish sometimes. And that’s likely true too. Gotta take care of yourself. Balance is the key. It’s good to think we are worthy. Good that we model that for our loved ones. Good that we go for the good things in life that in turn will contribute to the happiness of others as well. Venus in Cancer is good in marketing and advertising – art, photography. Historical and old things, geneology, make our story rich, give us an anchor in busy modern life.

Venus makes three exciting aspects!

  • She is separating sextile Jupiter in Virgo. Venus is adorable, attractive in demeanor, seductive at times, highly valued. She loves adornment of all kinds, but in Cancer especially lunar themes, corsets, garments that emphasize her lovely bosom! She loves bed and breakfasts, meals at a sumptuous eatery that feels like home, a snuggly cave-like shelter, likes a camper rather than a camp! Venus makes money, and Jupiter knows just how to manage it to make it more! Percentages are the name of the game. Jupiter wants to teach what Venus does without thinking. Jupiter, now in Virgo, wants to tell the delicious story and bring the nursing department up to par. Together they can give knockout seminars! Traveling in comfort is good as long as the budget stays in line.
  • Grand Water Trine! Venus with Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces! Spas, nurturing healing. Venus will let go of some of her old collections if it will bring a great price for a good cause. Cleansing, letting go, recycling opens doors to greater earnings, simply enjoying each other’s company! It’s clear there is more to life than the material. Scorpio, though a money sign, is the number one sign of therapists, saves your life, awakens the Kundalini, the fire at the base of your spine, bringing a burning passion that must be lived! Chiron knows well we have our wounds, have struggled and suffered, each in our own way, and has become more compassionate, a true healer and teacher. We aren’t just here solely for ourselves. What affects one affects all. Venus’s love is crucial to the courage it takes to be on and stay with this journey.

    Mars inconjunct Uranus in Aries is not at rest. He’s always twitchy in Scorpio. Scorpio is a darkish place, private, more secretive, behind the scenes power, where Mars’ true nature is so very upfront, tell it like it is right now and let’s get on with it! Uranus in Aries is a lot more like Mars! And Aries is Mars’ sign! Uranus may be strange, but it’s new, a genius on the cutting edge and Mars is a leader! So being invisible and waiting in Scorpio is going to be a challenge. But if revelation becomes important, Mars will be the one to spring it! Mars has seen a lot while rooting around, and some of that stuff needs to be spilled. Scorpio is thought to be the one who cleanses, but Mars burns it out, cauterizes the wound and because it’s clean, it heals fast! Uranus is the community, networks of people, the internet, so with all that potential support, Mars may feel like it can do it now. Get a leg up and go for it! Both Mars and Uranus are split second fast, so adjustments can be made as you go!
  • Venus square Uranus in Aries! Believe me, Venus in Cancer is quite different than Uranus in Aries! If she’s bored, she will love it, design and put up the posters, revel in the blast into the future from right when she walks in the door! If she’s afraid, it might take some doing to get her to that party! She may be glad another is leading the good fight and gently lend her energy along the sidelines serving a healthy meal that looks good and tastes good too! If conservative, she may be shocked. Unable to unsee what she saw, she is changed. It may take some time, but she will think on it and find a better way. Some of what happens may be a now or never situation. The aspect isn’t exact until July 7 at 7:24 AM Pacific. I would err to the cautious side. Make test investments; see how it goes over a longer time.

Moon and Sun are at 12 degrees sextile Jupiter 17 Virgo and opposite Pluto 16 Capricorn.

Cancer is a forever scholar sign. Jupiter is college level learning. Virgo loves manuals. The sextile aspect is opportunity type connections, in this case Cancer to Virgo. Cancer is the nurturer, Virgo the caregiver. Growing and learning are happy companions. Making sure people have what they need to learn, that the learning system really works, that there is funding to take care of things, and that there is a safe place to learn, are important. Jupiter and Pluto recently trined. Perhaps some doors were opened for funding options that hadn’t been available before. If the system is too old, reasonable upgrades can be made now. Stay with it and follow through. Perhaps a property purchase is in the offing, a career adjustment or location change. Retirement. There could be an application to change some laws that we have outgrown. Time to let go, reach out, rebuild. Mercury and Sun both complete the opposition July 7, 4:54 AM (essentially on the do business daytime of the 6th) and 3:24 PM Pacific respectively. With those and the Venus square Uranus also the 7th, the 7th brings the culmination of some important considerations. 

This New Moon is sweet but with a little bit of bite too!x

Full Buck Moon! – Uranian T Square Inconjunct Mars Links to Grand Water Trine!

Tuesday July 19, 3:56 PM Pacific at 27 Cancer/Capricorn 40

Full Moon Lake Tahoe CA Summer Pine Trees Rocks

Beautiful Lake Tahoe CA Full Moonset by dedicated photographer Mark Larrea!

Cancer and Capricorn both know the importance and strength of the foundation of the sacred Past, and who better to carry the energy forward?! They both recently made a T Square with Uranus, Uranus at the T point. First is the Sun July 16 at 6:31 AM Pacific, then Moon, just before the Full Moon, reminding us, at 10:06 AM Pacific. Change is befalling us and activating growth from and to many directions! Sometimes we underestimate our friends that carry awakening to the future, but often the greatest inventions and discoveries are made when we take that one step beyond our Past, out of the box! Welcome the blessing.

Mars too made an aspect with Uranus, in fact, due to Mars having been retrograde, it has been in a prolonged inconjunct, allowing a 3 degree range, since June 6. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5, but this one is more significant because it is when Mars makes it station direct, turns forward. The second aspect, during Mars retrograde, was June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. It carries that energy with it to the present time. The inconjunct was continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. It’s still close. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Though inconjuncts are askew and sometimes take us temporarily off track. Even if uncomfortable, we see new things that open our consciousness. These two planets have kinship. Mars is the current ruler, planet associated with Aries, the sign Uranus is in now. Mars is currently in Scorpio, the sign Mars also used to rule. Both are warrior signs, Aries the front line fighter, with the courage of the first responder fighting fires; Scorpio is the ninja therapist midnight requisition specialist, that saves the day in the dark, from behind and within. Sneaky devil, but ever so potent, revelation on the way. Kundalini and resurrection go hand in hand. Sex is great or not at all! Uranus is a lot kinky, unusual/exceptional to say the least, electric and proud of it! So sometimes we don’t have a clue what’s going on; other times it’s all in our face! Ha! Great to be alive! Unpredictable but definitely on course!

Grand Water Trine! Sun trined Mars July 16 at 8:45 PM Pacific after Sun squared Uranus in the wee hours of the morning. What built up all week long to a possibly unsettling 14th, 15th, gets quickly integrated and swiftly taken care of the 16th! Act on what’s in your heart to do! Sun and Mars are both physical, even in water signs! Take a good swim, snorkel, paddle! Get your molecules humming! Maybe get with someone you love! Then alternate a great hot bath/spa, cold shower routine! Refreshing and exhilarating!

Mars completes the Grand Water Trine! He is sure there is potential because he just had a healthy consult with Chiron in Pisces July 17 at 4:42 AM Pacific (essentially the 16th also). Where there’s a will there’s a way! Scorpio is shrewd, and Chiron in Pisces is insightful beyond measure, together clever! Both have an eye to business, and if there is a healing spiritual component to the enterprise, even better. Mars encourages Chiron to trust himself, instead of stewing, stewarding! Chiron has Mars somewhat at his mercy because he sees the obsessions that hold him prisoner in Scorpio. Chiron sees the potential when freed. Mars is potently in station, about to turn forward, direct, in only 10 days on June 29. It will be a slow restart, but strong. It will clear the conduit to core molten purity. It will be steeped in corrective process, focused on a wellspring of power to release the old, develop what’s innovative.

Moon sextiles Mars just 4 juicy hours before the Full Moon at 12:12 PM Pacific. Moon in Capricorn can seem stone cold, but you can bet there will be a realistic appraisal. If merited, you will get a golden report, your efforts well noted. Capricorn knows hard good work when it sees it and respectfully gives honor. The Mars/Capricorn combination could still be a little testy even though sextiles indicate opportunities, because Capricorn is the father figure/boss, and Mars, especially in Scorpio, prefers not being told what to do and dislikes scrutiny of their private doings, what they do and how and when they do it. Better if Capricorn hires Mars as an independent doing piece work. Mars gives powerfully. He is always inspirational in some regard, sparks the ignition, an initiation. If Moon in Cap has relied on their previous standing, Mars may shrewdly surreptitiously suggest they stand taller, make a bigger sweep, do some inventive research, upgrade, add some new juice!

What a powerful backdrop this Full Moon has!

Cancer and Capricorn are guardians of the hearth, and make sure we have shelter to raise our young. There is no more sacred duty of procreation than to give new beings the opportunity to carry the Light in a good way. Cancer holds the babies with love. Capricorn shows them how to professionally serve their community, take their place in the world in a good way. These signs hold fast the basic tenets of our lives. Full Moons invite us to open our hearts, spread our wings as wide as we can, embrace the potential in ourselves and others.

This Full Moon is the culminating aspect while the Moon is in Capricorn, then the Moon starts what we astrologers call VC, Void of Course. That’s like a free zone. Nothing comes of some things started in that corridor until the moon changes signs. That will be from 3:56 PM to until the Moon enters Aquarius 8:10 PM Pacific. Others speculate there is nothing to stop us. Could be a good time to simply consider things, let your Spirit meander. Blessed be.

Full Worm Moon Lunar Eclipse! Jupiter Square Saturn
New Moon  4 Planets in Aries, Jupiter Opposite Neptune!

Full Worm Moon Lunar Eclipse! Jupiter Square Saturn
Wednesday March 23, 5:01 AM Pacific at 3 Libra 17

Worm Full Moon Eclipse March 2016 Aries Candle

Taking a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon bath by Aries candlelight…….

Sunrise and Sunset are the Aries and Libra times of day. Aries brings the new dawn each day and Libra is the gathering time, breaks bread and shares the experiences of the day with loved ones and fellows at the end of the day. Peace is made.

Moon in Libra tends the harmony of the tribe. She is the go between in difficult situations. She initiates and brokers deals, negotiates the terms with balance and fairness. She upholds the law, and generally upholds standards of beauty and grace. Venus is Libra’s planet. Libra Moon’s light shines with Love and gratitude, seal the deal.

Sun in Aries is at times belligerent, and always a super champion! Sun is spirited in Aries, an intuitive risk taker, proactive! Independence is an important goal, and Aries is the first to step out of the box, a leader without giving it a thought!

They may be opposite, but the ECLIPSE puts them in exact alignment! It’s not close, it’s right on! When the neighborhood needs something done, they can work together perfectly. Libra makes the request, Aries doesn’t hesitate! Aries has a cause, Libra gathers the clan!

With three planets in Aries, Mercury/Sun and Uranus, and Mercury/Sun trines Aries’ planet Mars, while Moon sextiles Mars, there is an abundance of Aries energy! Give them something to do!!! Mercury and Sun together, they are of one mind, faster than the blink of your eye! The planetary links are excellent, a swift flow, and opportunities are at your fingertips! Uranus gives a tweak and a peek at wild opportunities headed for the future and humankind!

Mars in Sagittarius trine with Mercury/Sun takes this ECLIPSE off to the far reaches of the Universe! Think big and do it! Visit the master, seek spiritual guidance for clarity of your Path. Visit the expert for training and how to. Make an alliance, then all of you go and do your special parts! What was just a wish is happening!!! Publish, get the word out! Take a few days vacation, get some new perspective, be refreshed!

Mars in Sagittarius sextile Moon! Mama Moon lays it all down. She may stay home, but she has that power of family, our source of life from the womb. Mars can tantrum, whine, threaten, but Mother’s just look at you and ask if you are finished. When you calm down, talk it out. She has special intuition in context of knowing your capacity and inner beliefs. Moon in Libra can balance your powerful desires with your good place among your people. Sometimes she pins your ears back, other times she calls you to take the responsibility of your highest potential, knowing your people will support you. Her blessings mean a lot, especially as the ECLIPSE gates are open and the opportunity to step through is here!

Jupiter so recently trined Pluto March 16. We are still under those blessings. Now, Venus sextiles Pluto! Jupiter brings good luck, fame, growth and with Pluto wealth if well connected with your chart! Venus is Love, beauty and with Pluto financial blessings, again, if well connected with your chart at this time! Jupiter, a slow moving outer planet gives long term gain. Venus is potent for about 3 days, but if done well, can lend a lasting worthy value in addition to Jupiter’s promises!

Venus in Pisces is kindness and love, affection and appreciation, a spiritual bond. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, gives a deep intimacy. Besides sharing wealth, a loyal bond can be forged for life. Go for the true love rather than the seductive glitter.

At 3:15 AM Pacific, just before the Eclipse at 5:01 AM Pacific, Jupiter Retrograde squares Saturn. This is their second square, they will be in continuous close square until the third and final one May 26.

Saturn has his rules and personal sense of timing. Jupiter is like a Labrador puppy, tail wagging the vase off the table, dashing about wanting to go out and play, cuteness personified warming your heart! Puppies need training, and Saturn, the intuitive wise Master, can do it. In humans, Saturnian people can be a little down from time to time, lack confidence. They might mask it by taking over and intimidating us to compliance. Jupiterians just laugh. You want me to do what? By when?! No way, you know the surf’s up, I’ll see you later! You gotta enjoy their unabashed truthfulness, their exuberance and lack of concern about your fears. They just know things are gonna be ok. Yup. And usually they are!

Jupiter cheers you up and has magnanimous maximus plans, which they seem fully capable of doing! They are generous and have a sense of wellbeing that is contagious and inspiring. Saturn gives them the job, helps steer them, keeps focus, makes the deadlines fun! There ARE serious moments, occasional discipline needed, and that’s ok. It’s a natural cycle.

This aspect before the ECLIPSE breaks open the old shells, outdated facades of powers we used to use, that are perhaps making us tired to keep holding onto. Jupiter the teacher of great faith stepping into the beyond, lets us learn new ways that are so much more fun and get the job done faster and more better! Time to let go, make space to update, take on more meaningful committments!

See lots more about Jupiter square Saturn….

This is a Spring, Worm Moon ECLIPSE. Think how powerful these little beings are! They make the rich soil we grow our food in, all very quietly hardworking, mostly unseen. Few people even talk to them or give them thanks. Let us honor their tribe at this time.

Visibility: During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth’s main shadow does not cover the Moon. The Earth’s shadow (umbra) misses the Moon. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon. Check this site for visibility at your location!

New Moon – 4 Planets Aries, Jupiter Opposite Neptune!
Thursday April 7 at 4:24 AM Pacific – 18 Aries 04

Aries New Moon Dark Sky Stars
The dark fiery sky of an Aries New Moon

Four planets in Aries, an Aries Stellium! First is Venus! She loves a challenge, invites teammates to step up! Wherever she goes, looking good adds to the glory of her presence and gets her there faster! Being the first to make a new connection, welcoming new associates and neighbors, brings the community together in sharing. Comfortable active wear with bright colors and cool air flow make things go smoothly! What a great run and a super cause!

Then is the New Moon with Uranus! Independence and Freedom too! Mothers get out and do more things they always wanted to! They cheer their children on! What is in our hearts is in our action. Encouraging words, being there to support, makes all the difference. Being, looking different, is a form of leadership without any words spoken. People look at you because they want to be their unique selves too. Inspiration automatically happens and people come with you. They like your courage, your verve, how amazing you are! It’s a pleasure, and more fun than you have ever had!

Venus is trine Mars, the Aries planet. Venus is generally a Sweetie, but in Aries and with Mars, she has more zing than expected! Mars is in Sagittarius and has a mind to sweep that little beauty off her feet! They could go many places together. They could go to school, travel abroad, find the publisher for that book. Going to the gym is fun and trail running to a magnificent viewpoint is Spirit filling! Sex in the tent, the bell tower, back of the sportscar. Mmm…. Quick new investments could bring them fast returns to fund exciting ventures. They might not spend a lot of time in Church, but their jaunts have meaning and purpose.

Mercury in Taurus was just semi-sextile, a sign away, from Venus in Aries. Venus is Taurus’s planet, so there is an extra affinity between them. Venus has sweet initiative in Aries. Mercury in Taurus sees that value and wants to tell all the neighbors about it. You may have just met a good looking new neighbor that you share ideas with and agree to do some things together. Or you may be the new neighbor and it’s time to make some connections! Talk about what you hope for. New ideas are likely to give you some insights on how to go about it.

Jupiter retrograde in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces. The aspect does not become exact because Jupiter turns direct, forward, at 13 degrees, but it is felt nonetheless. Jupiter in Virgo likes a precise target, a clear connection, but Neptune in Pisces is famous for not being where you expect it to be. It shimmers like the sea, with mists and veiling, waves rising and falling. It’s illusive without malice, sometimes lost. It’s just its way of being. So, no matter how well intended, Jupiter may not make its mark and learns to live with what is. Jupiter is religious to an extent, and Virgo likes to serve, so they may need to leave the basket on the doorstep. If Neptune was home, he might invite them to a local meditation.

To complicate things, Aries’ planet Mars is in an almost square Neptune too! Mars is slowing to retrograde April 17 at 8 Sagittarius 54. See Mars Retrograde. Things you may be afraid will happen will be a hair’s breadth from happening. Things you wanted to happen don’t make it even after all that energy you put into it. You almost get swallowed up into the Void and get lost. Your aim will be off and it will be a near miss, or they can’t find you! You might want to run away or just rest. Take time out if you can.  

Jupiter remains in the close square with Saturn, to become exact May 26. We are still breaking up old barriers, long done spent commitments are falling from their own weight. We are letting loose of unspoken rules we never challenged before. Father’s, bosses, find their script uncertain, a sure sign of hope for change. From the tightest darkest corners we find we can prevail against seemingly oppressive odds. Age and experience may prove to be on our side. Old rules get questioned, some even changed. With Jupiter’s confidence we find ourselves leaning forward, wanting to give it a try. A plan is made, even though we may be only cautiously optimistic. In time there will be some quite satisfactory results. Even if only meager, it is a sustainable beginning!

Hats off and Hallelujah!

Aquarius  Full Wolf Moon – Mars T Square
NEW Moon – Monkeys, Midpoints, 19s and Jupiter!

Full Wolf Moon – Mars T Square!
Saturday January 23, 5:46 PM Pacific at 3 Leo 29

Full Wolf Moon Woman Book Sphere White
May the Magic & Inspiration of the Wolf Moon make its presence known.

First Full Moon of 2016! Mercury is retrograde for only 2 more days, going direct on the 25th at 1:50 PM Pacific! It is ‘stationed,’ still at its turning point conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Believe me, no stone is unturned! Mercury is our mental computer, curious to the max, nevermind Capricorn’s polite regard or politics. Pluto will have fewer secrets as things are dredged from the depths, willingly or not! Mercury has been stirring the brew, swirling things to the surface, releasing old constraints! Gotta have all the factors present to make the best decisions.

Part of the purpose of Full Moons is to widen the playing field to its maximum wingspread, embrace a greater potential! Moon and Sun are as far apart as they can get. Aquarius is wild as it gets, truly bored by the status quo. Leo loves a good old fashioned drama! These two are coming up to T Square Mars the Instigator, fomenter of NEW beginnings in Pluto’s fixed sign Scorpio! Scorpio doesn’t give up or change easily, but Mars is warrior kin, so fearless that Scorpio admires and, not admitting it, tries to keep up! Keep your socks on and your running shoes ready!

Moon will square Mars 8:11 AM the next morning, so there are some immediate considerations! Moon is in the sign of Light, Leo. Secrets will be revealed! Moon is emotional, can get its feelings hurt in Leo. Mars is famous for being a bit techy, and in Scorpio scary. That could be uncomfortable for everyone,so don’t get too close; Mars in Scorpio has its own kind of bite! Time out, cool down, stop pouting. Don’t let things get so far you can’t get back. Generally everyone has good intention. Might choose to take on hot topics some other time?

In another version, Moon in Leo is like a New Moon in itself! Moon is in Sun’s sign, receiving another powerful infusion and she nurturing the Light! She is the Queen, and has her due. Mars is her formidable soldier, in molten Scorpio of the Underworld. She rules by brilliance alone, he by deep instinctual passion. If he loves you he loves you. If he doesn’t…. She of the heart, and he the Healer, burn away the fears, cleanse the Spirit, brighten the Soul, that we may give wholley!

Since both Sun and Mars are moving forward, Sun is continuously square, in challenge with Mars, for 2+ weeks, exact Feb 7 at 4:08 AM Pacific. They are fire planets, in power signs. Sun in Aquarius looks so free and easy it seems anything goes. But Aquarians have seen so much crazy, they know it when they see it. If Mars in Scorpio goes into obsession mode, that will go against the Aquarian grain. They are allergic to possession or thoughtless actions that don’t flex with the times and possibilities. Mars may try to secretly manipulate, but to no avail. Aquarius is a detached air sign and they see it like it is. Aquarius may try to out crazy and intimidate Mars with its genius, but Mars in Scorpio has seen the dark side and little fears him. He has fighter strength, tenacity in Scorpio. No dice. It Mars doesn’t get its way in reasonable time, and many of his ways are absolutely accurate, there are greener pastures.

However, if they are born to the same cause, together, nothing can stop them! They put mind, internet and passionate personal devotion together like a vise grip! Sun in Aquarius is beyond extraordinary, sees the potential of mergers in all places, bonds a community of key Souls. Mars likes to work alone, but in Scorpio sees the value of merging funds and talents. It will tackle the toughest, most unlikely, and bring them to sponsor crucial pivotal unions. Mars in Scorpio is seductive, a tremendous healer, sparing no one its touch, bringing the deepest stories of raw courage to the table. If there is debris in the Path, Mars recycles or removes it. Change will happen.

Sun in Aquarius is a combination of opposites like Full Moons are always opposite! Sun is Leo’s planet, and Aquarius is Leo’s opposite sign! We need to befriend ourselves, the Self in others. We are our selves, but are among our fellows. There are many facets within us, a huge mix of thoughts, a unique combination that makes us able to contribute to the tapestry of Humankind! Not giving our part, a piece is missing, sometimes critical, sometimes holding things up. Let yourself just be and celebrate that like-no-one-else quality that is only yours! Notice it in others and say so. Find good ways to say it so they know you are appreciative!

This marvelous rich resonance of character, strange and incredible, repulsive at times yet impossible not to follow, is part of the leaders of all time! From neurotic nerdy loners, researchers for a cure, to David Bowie, war heroes, adventurers, spiritual champions and saviors, the right bodacious Miley Cyrus! All make us think! The R/evolution is upon us fully loaded! It is a contagious continuous epidemic of consciousness! The more changes you can make, the further you get!

Saturn will almost exactly semi sextile Mercury and Pluto, is close to trine Uranus and square Chiron, but instead, while they continue forward, Saturn retrogrades back to square Neptune in June. Though Mercury is retrograde, he turns forward at 14 degrees. Faster moving he leaves Saturn behind. Saturn, the planet of Capricorn, the sign Mercury has been in, has helped keep Mercury with compulsive Pluto stable. Saturn retrogrades and doesn’t catch up with Pluto either, doesn’t make exact connection. Hints and hopes. Saturn hints at forming a collective of friends and associates with Uranus. It hints at losses of business or loved ones, a need for healing, in the square with Chiron. When it squares Neptune we are tested about our Compassion and Faith.

What we do have is Jupiter close to its second exact opposition with Chiron Feb 23, the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! Chiron is in Pisces, ahead of Neptune now by 10 degrees. Chiron the chief Centaur got in trouble, given a wound that wouldn’t heal. He studied, became a master healer and teacher. In Pisces the wisdom applies to matters of the fluids in our bodies, the natural tidal flow of our consciousness. Pisces the Sensitive is an empath, compassionate psychic. Pisces is art and music – mega concerts, miraculous performances and talent! It is the worldwide machinery of the ocean – tourism, shipping, seaside harbors, sports, fishing and seaweed harvests.

Jupiter in Virgo watches from the opposite vantage point with way above average organizational skills. With ethics and honesty it takes care of our health so we can do the good business of life, enjoy or time with our fellows to the fullest. Jupiter in this sign minimizes costs with efficient efforts and maximizes the applications of our highly crafted skills! Small details that others don’t see, pivotal to our success, are taken care of with a fine tooth comb! Even our pets are well tended! Prepare to be offered a full package deal. Jupiter in Virgo knows how true it is that all things are connected. Being apart, opposite Chiron, is an excellent position with the least attachment. Their perspective is priceless. See more!

With a big heart of Love and a clear light Mind, let the embers be Bright!

New Moon – Monkeys, Midpoints, 19s and Jupiter
Monday Feb 8 at 6:39 AM Pacific – 19 Aquarius 16

The Milky Way Galaxy extending over an unnamed Gros Ventre peak, Gros Ventre Wilderness, Wyoming. New Moon Aquarius Milky Way FreeRoamingSplendid Milky Way by extraordinary Jackson Hole photographer Mike

This New Moon is Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey! Red symbolizes luck and is believed to ward away evil! Fire is born leaders, decisive, confident! Adventurous and innovative, their brilliance and warmth attracts grand companions. Monkeys are lively, flexible, quick-witted and versatile, often ahead of the game planning their next moves. And that’s not all! See more!

A New Moon night is Moonless, but still full of a sweeping array of wondrous Light. Aquarius is the sign of the Heavens, Ouranos, aka Uranus, the Planet of Aquarius, the God of the Sky.

7 New Moon factors in the chart are in close teen degrees, 14 to 19, making for an intricate play of patterns. Moon is getting her batteries charged by Sun, so all are being revitalized!

I’ve never seen a double set of midpoints with so many planets lined up as this New Moon has!

SemiSextile Midpoint Pattern

Venus is in the preceding sign Capricorn, and Chiron is in the following sign, Pisces, ALL four at 19 degrees! That means the New Moon is at the midpoint, equidistant between Venus and Chiron, an instant exchange of the transfusion of Sun to Moon, Moon to Sun energies! Moon is always ‘catching up’ with the Sun. Sun in glorious Light is always sharing the Radiance! This time, the magnification is further spread in Capricorn by Venus, a love of all time, being placed midpoint between Pluto and Mercury! Venus has politely and carefully kissed Pluto, leading Pluto’s profound power of the deepest life force, our Kundalini, further with a vision of beauty and blessings to come. A deep insight into Fatherhood could be life changing.

Mercury in Cap, the Word of Light, the Breath of Life, gets the scent of what Venus is bringing with her from Pluto, plus Venus’ very own perfume! The story of what has been so dearly worked for is told with reverence. It is both poetic and iconic. Time has made such a differenced! Some things are fresh and sprung from their seeds, like our children. Others, elders, grandparents, are gentled with age, smoothed with mercy, reliable, stand in honor. Mercury was retrograde until Jan 25, now moving forward, getting the word of impressive structures and systems out there. It is mature and respected. It’s energy is sensibly focused. We are doing this!

Moon/Sun to Venus is feminine and fathering. Moon is archetypical nurturing to ancient wisdom Keeper Capricorn, giving Venus the invitation to the gathering. Sun in Aquarius lights the way through strange new territory, way beyond the old places! Capricorn, the sign of Father Time, Saturn, guards the Path, is the Father of times to come. No mere candle flame, Father Sun makes us see the lighted Heart within us, gives the courage to give our unique contribution that we alone can give.

In the next sign, Pisces, the divine Beings are also sharing the Light with Chiron, healing even the tiniest morsels within our Souls, ones we didn’t know were camouflaged by waves and swells within us. It’s one thing to have a army of friends, another to be tuned in to the Celestial trails. Also, with Venus exactly sextile Chiron, healings may occur to entire groups in an instant! The symbol for Aquarius is waves of energy, whether Light, sound, water, electricity, sometimes lightning bolts! It bestows super through and through, up and down, always forward, often ahead of its time, energy. If you miss the first wave, no worry, there are more to come, repetition until we get it! It loosens old patterns, replaces lost bits, reassembles and metamorphs, changes until you forget what was, and you are new without a thought of the past! Evolution happens, new dreams are living in us.

This is a seriously potent pattern with Jupiter opposite Chiron, the outer planet anchor aspect! Chiron in the same degree as the New Moon and Venus ties it 100%! Jupiter is retrograding back to make its second trine with Pluto Mar 16! See more! This aspect is the most powerful outer planet aspect of 2016! It is known for mega wealth and success when the project matches their current signs, in this case Virgo and Capricorn! Venus trines Jupiter the next day at 11:54 PM. There is time to put some cards on the table and show ’em what you got! A big YES is possible! Mercury has already gotten his ideas and made the appointment back on the 5th & 6th. Just keep talking it up!

Moon, and Sun are in the inconjunct with Jupiter, keeping tabs on adjustments needed to bring more people, patrons and workers to the project, cause. Sun gives it a couple more days then goes on.

Jupiter was coming close in the opposition during the Full Wolf Moon (See) and now is less than 3 degrees of its exact opposition with Chiron! It broadens and enriches our wingspan! We have a greater range of vision, we are accessing more people! It will become exact Feb 23, the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! See more

This midpoint pattern alone involves 6 chart factors! The next one adds two more, bringing it to 8 factors!

Sextile Midpoint Pattern

The second midpoint pattern is with Saturn and Uranus, the old and the avant garde! Sun and Moon have just made made sextiles with Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn is the wise old anchor that keeps us from being swept away, tempted by false time-wasting journeys in Sagittarius. Saturn is also the Guardian of the ways of Truth, the righteous Path and journeys that must be taken. It keeps us on course. Productive! In sextiles with the ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus in Aries, there is a purity of expression of Aquarian goals, a natural enthusiastic harmony, immediate release and change! Teaching the way, Saturn’s commitment and the fiery Spirit of Uranus in Aries are inspiration like never before! The Gates open, the Threshold is cleared! Freedom!

Sun and Moon also sextiled Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Uranians, though sometimes loners, are also specialists at connecting disparate elements in our communities! Extraordinary acceptance of difference allows Union in action. We put our heads together and new ways to solve old long troubling discouragements are lifted, resolved beyond our wildest hopes! It’s time to open up, take that stand, call for what works. True, some factions will be deeply opposed, even brutal, barbaric, but the tides of time, basic evolution, will bring greater change. Eventually those times will be past, dim dust, people wondering how that ever could have been. Yes, there will be some errors as we ALL learn. We are on new ground. Together. Collaborate.

Other Aspects

The strongest challenge aspect is what has been recently uncovered by Moon and Sun squaring Mars in Scorpio. This did not go lightly. The dark side has been revealed. Do not let that stop you; let it make you know why we continue to stand true. Get your words in order, your body fit as can be. Let go of the old hurts that you keep talking about, acting out on. If you have a temper, if you have harmed someone, get to work. These things can be dealt with, and you don’t have to do it alone. Friends and experts can help. Be wise. Refocus where good work can be done. Be truly and really free. It starts with yourself.

The other challenge aspect is right in the time of the New Moon. Sun and Moon will inconjunct (that’s 150 degrees) Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo. Being askew of each other, in each others’ peripheral vision, will keep a tab on things, but can also be annoying, sorta like an itch you can’t quite reach. They can pull you off into a ream of details, ideas you would have rather ignored, but may ultimately pay off as you take the treasure back to the main pack for perusal. Hmpf. Used to be you could just coast along, but now…sigh, there are some more requirements. And that’s ok.

Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces stands alone. He has been in the square with Saturn, but right now is a little further away. Saturn is loosening his hold. The idea is to keep the Dream conscious, keep building, but sometimes you need to be let to move with no constraints, more at random, to explore the furthest amazing possibilities.

Be a receiver ~ transmitter.  Be a living conduit; move energy and information.

FULL Grain Moon!
New Moon Solar Eclipse!   

Full Grain Moon – Planetary Pairing!
Saturday August 29, at 11:35 AM Pacific – 6 Pisces 6

Virgo Full Grain Moon Planetary Pairing

Jupiter in Virgo’s first Full Moon and the Sun is in Virgo!

There are three planetary pairings, aka conjunctions, one at each end of the Full Moon and the Mars Venus pair. The Sun is leaving Jupiter, Venus is going back for Mars, Moon is proactively approaching Neptune in its own sign Pisces! Though not a planetary pair, Mercury in Libra is just leaving the North Node. There are unions and emphasis where each pair is. They are sharing their wisdom with each other, then it’s on to their next meeting on the Path.

Sun Virgo left Jupiter 3 days ago, still close enough for reminders. Sun and Jupiter have more vitality than is usual for Virgo. Virgos tend more to be thinkers and to work at intricate tasks, computers are easy. Sun and Jupiter take it on like it is nothing! Take advantage of this to find an exercise system that livens more of your body, keeps you humming all day! Take a walk at lunch! Get your face lifted to the Sun, oxygen to your brain, get OUT of the office! Jupiter loves a great story and in Virgo, just for the fun of it, embellishes it with an array of details that make it super credible. Volumes will be written!

Sun’s next stop is the North Node in Libra Sep 24! Mercury, Sun’s faithful companion, has just passed the North Node, and will later retrograde back to meet the Sun Sep 30! The three of them will exchange relationship tips. Sun says trust yourself, come from the heart. The North Node says give and take, listen, share, enhance each other. Mercury wants to talk it through, listen, try out some new ideas, give appreciation and sing praises!

Moon in Pisces, is about to embrace Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, in only hours, at 3:21 PM Pacific, carrying that encounter on to Chiron on Aug 31 at 3:20 PM Pacific. If you Neptunians/Pisceans don’t want a bunch of hugs and food offerings, either run for it or stand tall and don’t act like any kind of wimp. If you adore being smothered and smooched, just stand still and happily keep smiling and saying thank you, thank you! You may get a month of groceries and your laundry taken to be done up right properly. LOL! If only!

Once the feasting is done, photos taken, we realize the great Spirit of family, generation on generation, the magic of Motherhood. There have been sacred women, divine feminine beings, since the beginning of time. Their Light continues to be carried on though women like Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai, youngest winner, at 16, of the Nobel Peace Prize. Her chart. Neptune in Pisces knows true reverence, recognizes intrinsic purity. It steeps in the beauty of the Soul, the Child and Mother in us all. It may have deep challenges, confusing layers, nightmares of addictions, but there are Miracles and often an abiding Faith clothes a wellspring of strength we didn’t know we had.

Sun and Jupiter and Moon and Neptune are a fabulous foursome in close degrees with no other planets in the chart involved unless you count the Mercury semi-sextile Jupiter! Sun and Jupiter can get the job done! Moon and Neptune can feed the troops, make melodies, and provide inspiration, body and Soul!

Mercury in Libra semi-sextile Jupiter thinks of the purpose, holds the key to the greater direction. It is adept at connecting well with good people who are wanting the same things. It has the ability to see both sides, keep a reasonable peace while we get to know each other better. It explains different cultural needs, has respect, aims for fairness. Jupiter in Virgo runs the craft guilds and broadcasts about the fine things it makes, services it provides. Mercury sees the quality, and blogs the story, gets the word out. As it thinks round and about, it comes up with further trigger ideas Jupiter can introduce to its system, expanding even further! Jupiter in Virgo requires a profound meaning for what they do as well as doing a mechanically exquisite job.

Mercury is just leaving the Moon’s North node. Once a year it checks in with the Dragon’s Head, Caput. The Moon’s nodes are on a 19 year cycle, so sometimes the conjunction is in the same sign, sometimes not. Since the nodes are generally retrograde, reversing through the signs, the conjunction is usually in the preceding sign. The South Node is thought to signify our past, the North our present and future. The north may be an unsure place, still exploring and learning. With a conjunction, there is always an opposition, so Mercury is querying where things are going while there is an observable knowing where things have already been. The South is always exactly opposite the North Node, so is in Aries, sign of the Warrior, Initiation, Independence, very new beginnings! Libra is more cautious and considerate, cleverly saving its own skin, able to dodge bullets it never admits were fired, avoiding disharmony. Or, it is the attorney naming and fighting battles in behalf of their client?!

Mercury will retrograde Sep 17 and go back to meet the Sun coming forward on Sep 30. The Jupiter collection, and the North Node exchange will be shared into the Light of the Sun, then in Libra. Jupiter’s optimism, plans for the future will be happily received, faith restored, and passed on to many others. North Node in Libra shall have reached beyond the past. Through Mercury it invites Sun to find others of like mind, to make beauty every day. It is blessed to think good thoughts, hold itself to a higher standard, be a peer at a higher level of equals!

Venus retrograde still wants what she wants and she’s going back to get it! Mars is pretty handsome and daredevil courageous in Leo; how can she resist?! Later in the day, after the Moon Chiron connection on the 31st, she reaches him at 10:04 PM Pacific! The 31st is a Monday or I would recommend a party! A rendezvous is minimum! Wine and cheese, gifts, flowers, pretty clothes. The Moon will still be big and bright after the Full Moon. She wants Mars to be successful, offers him a cloak of charm and grace to soothe and smooth his way. She sees his value as a front man, salesman, first responder, and offers him the job. He’s quick and no-nonsense, gets to the point and gets things done, gets people going quick time! He doesn’t mind her overtures, she’s sweet. But if too sugary, he’s outta there!

This pair is inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Leo likes the professional success of Capricorn and Cap likes the flair and notice Leo lends to a solid performance! Leo loves spending and giving; Capricorn may not be so inclined to give as much of their hard-earned energy, but rather would place it for most effect. Venus and Mars love a great party, and Cappies like it if it includes the CEO and is for a cause that is to purpose for the company. Pluto in Cap tones down and conserves, focuses powerfully, succeeding at monumental achievements! Venus and Mars in Leo add spice and playfulness, dancing off to the races at the drop of a hat! All work will never be enough! LOL Pluto may see a way to put these two to work, like on the social committee, to the great pleasure of all!

Venus goes Direct, forward from her retrograde, Sep 6, moves into Virgo Oct 8. Her next conjunction is Oct 26 with Jupiter! That is considered a most fortunate combination! Venus brings Love, money and beauty. In Virgo that is to the finest detail, or maybe a host of details that make a greater beauty than of any one detail by itself! The quality of craftsmanship in itself may be the beauty! Jupiter, planet of plenty, and of expansion and growth, ups the amps, makes a template for repeat performances! The technique becomes famous! Jupiter takes it public, demonstrating the potential and it catches fire! The book has a lovely perfect artistic cover, gets published, goes viral! Travel in your line of work; go to health seminars; get training at specialty schools – apply for the instructor’s position!

All these planets have a mission, merging, moving on. Each stop has productive information for the next.

Chiron and Uranus are in a 13 minute magic semi-sextile. They have been in a close pattern since 2008 and will be to 2021, thirteen years! Aug 19 they were exactly semi-sextile and will be within a degree of each other, and exact again Nov 25, the day of the Sagittarius Full Moon, the day before ThanksGiving! Chiron in Pisces, heals and teaches about our Souls, our Spirit, while Uranus in Aries awakens collective consciousness, seeks independence and freedom, a Change Maker. It may be a small aspect, but the ripples across the oceans and airwaves leave no particle untouched. See more!

This combination is ahead of its times, way ahead! The Tipping Point is being transcended. Stand together and keep at it. Let’s change the process of healing itself and share it around the world. Every conscious minute we are all connected. Make it count.

Virgo New Moon SOLAR ECLIPSE – Pluto T Square! 
Saturday September 12, at 11:41 PM Pacific – 20 Virgo 10

Jupiter in Virgo’s first Solar Eclipse, and, the Eclipse is in Virgo!Solar Eclipse Nov 2012 Geoff Sims Australia
Photographer Geoff Sims captured the beauty of the Nov 14, 2012 total solar eclipse above Pormpuraaw, Queensland, Australia. ‘We flew across Cape York Peninsula for this eclipse, in search of clear skies and dramatic scenery. A lone tree stood on an otherwise barren plain, providing the perfect silhouette against the lunar shadow.’ Used by permission. See more of Geoff’s fine images! 

I always think of eclipses as a transfusion of the mighty forces of Sun and Moon. Moon will be our channel for the people of and our planet Earth to let Sun know what’s up, where the Light is needed. The Sun will be shooting the Moon major energy to lighten the dark places. Moon, the Nurturer, will step it to the frequency our ability has the capacity to receive. She is a storage chamber as well, keeping it simmering, pouring out some of that reserve when ready for more Liquid Sun! Powerful ancient memories will emerge from the Shadows.

Besides being the first eclipse in Jupiter in Virgo, it is the last eclipse and New Moon in Saturn in Scorpio. There is a changing of the guard. The gateways to Virgo are officially opened! How we take care of ourselves is prime. The quality of our work is essential to our Spirits, both what we do and how we do it. We may be showing others that we love them by the little things we do for each other. Caring for our health is a way of giving ourselves a prosperous foundation. The good order of things frees our time to have quality time with each other.

Saturn is in its last 5 days in Scorpio, entering Sagittarius Sep 17 at 7:47 PM Pacific. Virgo tends the last needs, understands the intensity of what Scorpio has tried to put in place for the last 2+ years. Virgo may be called on to tie up loose ends, find out details that anchor Saturn’s hard work in an accessible fashion. This transition to Sagittarius may be a dramatic switch of focus. Saturn can harness runaway Sag energy and guide it well. The future must be potently planned in an arc of timely progression, that the gears may mesh in a smooth steady pace.

Moon and Sun are just 1 degree past opposition Chiron in Pisces and the inconjunct with Uranus in Aries. Chiron and Virgo are interested in healing. Chiron was a Medicine Man centaur, a teacher. Throughout time Virgo has been the herbalist, walking the village with her basket, the midwife, bedside counselor advisor, having wisewoman common sense. Chiron knows by the advance symptoms where the weak spots are. He teaches the healing techniques needed. At the New Moon, a quietening time, minds are more open to hear unfamiliar ideas. Make your visitor comfortable, select a safe place for the exchange.

The inconjunct with Uranus in Aries tweaks our attention slightly off center, inviting us to spare some moments for curiosity. There may be some deliciously shocking ideas in the offing that change our center of gravity! That also means pay careful attention to your driving and steps. There are extraordinary options available, subtle or blatant, that are on the brink of being accepted publicly! They may call for more independence on an immediate basis, but Saturn in Sagittarius will know how to introduce them to mainstream thinking as ideas whose time has come!

Mercury is just past square Pluto, but will retrograde shortly and make the square again! Mercury is opposed to Uranus, but retrogrades before the opposition is exact. They are forming a T Square with Pluto at the point! Uranus and Pluto are both retrograde. Uranus, faster, will come back to an almost one degree of square of each other. Both being slow moving outer planets, the energy will be carried for awhile. They are closest the last two days of Jan to Feb 6, 2016. That period will be a potent reminder for some of the difficulties many weathered 2010 through early 2015. Reconsider your losses, your recovery, that you were, perhaps, even unscathed! Some things you would do differently now; others are surprisingly best that they did happen.

Mercury in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries is an unsettled brilliant landscape! Mercury chatters and scatters not missing much. In Libra it automatically juxtaposes points of view, a rich consideration of premises, meeting tons of people. Uranus is the planet of genius, ahead of their time, exotic, perfectly unpredictable as they see things with split second comprehension! Aries is instantly filled with fiery aspirations and wants to do them now – why wait?!?! First there is one matter, then another. Curiosity is about at 12 on a scale of 10! Mercury can seem innocent enough, but if you want quiet, forget it. It may be apolitical, but Libra isn’t! They could easily slip slide into danger, and flip back out in a nick of time, shaking hands and laughing like crazy! Uranus in fiery Aries is a rebellious combo. They carry their own lighter. Though this aspect doesn’t become exact because Mercury retrogrades, it hints at possibilities that flavor Mercury’s retro scans of relationships, the balance of its life and mind, quality of attention, as it goes back through Libra.

Venus is just past inconjunct Pluto. Part of the last 3 days may have been a little sobering. There may have been some schisms, an inescapable or barely escaped loss of money. The hard work some do is truly impressive. The long term goals achieved by people with disabilities makes us weep in sadness and admiration. We are inspired and feel blessed for our own graces. Venus in Leo can be proud of their prowess, their dynamic attractiveness. They can bring honor and recognition, funding to people and projects that deserve.

Venus is about to trine Uranus, exact Sep 22, last day of Sun in Virgo, the day before Fall Equinox! Venus paints the blog post with Uranian bright colors! Uranus in Aries is remarkable leaders, initiation to brilliant new causes. It rules friendships door to door, worldwide flight and organizations, the internet! A simple Facebook posting can make a huge difference. Make that a series of posts! What you love and who you know affects 100s and more people. Entertainment may be extraordinary. If you have a message, shout it!

Mercury is slowing to retrograde Sep 17, so though closely sextile with Venus, giving a beautiful articulate message, they don’t close the deal because Mercury turns back. The idea is given, Mercury seeks Libra balance and regard, considers who is across the table, but for the time being, Venus prevails in Leo, thinking more of the individual’s contribution in this case.

Sep 16! The major eclipse aspect is Jupiter in Virgo, in its first aspect in Virgo with another outer planet, opposition Neptune. This chart, this eclipse, is the opening gateway to the opposition. This chart gathers information from Chiron, Uranus and Pluto. Jupiter opposite Neptune happens on the last day of Saturn in Scorpio, the eve of Saturn’s entry to Sagittarius. The opposition happens only this once. Oppositions often act like reflections. Neptune is in its own sign Pisces, the deepest Pool of the Soul. It takes us to Spirit, fathoms our dreams, knows our most subtle fears, has the compassion of all Being. It makes Music without words, is Divine Love. Jupiter looks across the table at this panorama of humanity and knows its mission. In Virgo it starts right then and there putting puzzle pieces together, making a fusion of the future. It has a year to do its part. See more!

Now, do you know where YOUR little eclipse glasses are?! Well doggone it, if you are in North America, it won’t matter if you don’t. This one is only a partial eclipse, visible in Southern Africa, the southern half of Madagascar, northern half of Antarctica, and the southwestern Indian Ocean. It’s not our turn. It’s still exciting though, and we will be able to see some great images online, maybe even live from southern observatories!

Polish up your antennae, open your heart, prepare to send your own powerful information, keep focused on our collective consciousness. Virgo is the sign of small animals, pets. Have them with you; be with them. Lay out a simple altar by a tree you have an affinity with. Make a bread offering, lay out sacred plants, a bowl of water. Give thanks in honor of your Medicine Animal and the herbs that serve us.

Full Strawberry Moon ~
Pluto YOD, Jupiter Bow, Grand Fire Trine!
Tuesday June 2 at 9:19 AM Pacific – 11 Sagittarius 49
Full Strawberry Moon

During Mercury Retrograde, the Full Moon, Gemini/Sagittarius Strawberry Moon, is called the Festival of Humanity by some. It’s purpose is to share the Word and Teachings far and wide! Gemini gathers information and communication skills know how. Sagittarius seeks purpose, the far vision that makes it meaningful, gives focus.

♦ Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Retrograde reviews, upgrades, opens doors from opposite directions, making choices more whole and productive. On the immediate basis it can seem frustrating as things keep changing moment to moment, not settling. Fixed signs (Taurus/Scorpio, Leo/Aquarius) and orderly signs (Virgo/Capricorn) often don’t find this multitude of adjustments comfortable; they like their routines, but stay with it, the results will prove worthy though many people will opt not to sign important papers yet.

Some of those adjustments were front and center when Sun, moving forward, and Mercury in reverse, crossed on Saturday the 30th at 9:56 AM Pacific, or, they had a meeting of the minds. Though moving apart now, they have left an invisible trail of thoughts still influencing decisions.

Sun is getting excited as he approaches Mars, a super athlete combination! Running, tennis, biking may all be in the wind in short volleys. But, the Moon in Sagittarius would like to get some distance going! They want to SEE what’s out there! Mars is a Leader, first, takes the initiative! Mars is a rights fighter, in this case, the pen being mightier than the sword! Gemini/Sag is the great storyteller of a very entertaining chapter-by-chapter mythy moral tale embellished with believable facts that make it seem real. Personal new beginnings are near and dear to your heart!

The Moon is opposite Mars, so be careful of wounding words and conversations. Moon can be a tad self righteous in Sagittarius, and by nature, Mars only does what Mars thinks in a hot minute! Mars can be quick, and if the Sun is provoked in its ego, together they all may regret what can’t be taken back. Lucky for us, Moon in Sag is more forgiving. If you are hair trigger yourself, maybe lay a bit low, avoid giving or getting the bee sting. If it is needing saying, long overdue, maybe it will clear the air; change will be quick! The Sun/’Mars exact conjunction isn’t until June 14 at 8:56 AM Pacific, the day Saturn returns into Scorpio. The Full Moon may set off a situation that lasts until then and then some.

♦ The Full Moon axis is just leaving Neptune in its own sign Pisces as the point of the T Square to the axis. Neptune/Pisces is famous for sensitivity, Sun, Mars and Gemini/Sag not so much. The challenge has been to have compassion, empathy, yet with logic, not be swept into doing things that aren’t in your heart. It will still be tempting, perhaps, to run right over the shy person or push a confused person to agree with you, maybe in the interests of ‘saving time’ or getting another person on your side. But that kind of compliance usually unravels later, so take a deep breath, honor others best you can.

You yourself may have had a recent battle of confusion within you or with someone who has. You may still have doubts what to do. It goes from mystical pandemonium to whether to turn right or left! Surrender or jump on it. Get the exercise or meditate. Talk or be silent. Almost always, the answer is a bit of both. The whole function of a Full Moon is separation of opposites yet assimilation, in short, balance, equality. Having skills to do both gives you all your options!

♦ Because the Sun conjuncts Mars, the YOD with Pluto and Jupiter becomes important. Mars and Pluto are in a tight 1 minute of space inconjunct! They are close with Jupiter only a degree away, Mars quickly to sextile Jupiter exactly on the 5th at 4:38 PM Pacific. Mars and Pluto are warriors, but Mars in Gemini with words and a smile, and Pluto in Capricorn very differently with your paycheck and the law! Mars can speak fervently in Pluto’s behalf or devastate Pluto’s reputation. Pluto can fund Mars’ intentions or take it all away. Pluto in Cap has staying power, but Mars bounces back in air sign Gemini. Better to be respectful allies or just leave it alone if things aren’t working, put your energy elsewhere.

Mars sextile Jupiter in Leo is just plain fun and a wins the race! Both are leaders, Jupiter is confident. Mars in Gemini likes new and clever, while Jupiter in Leo goes for center stage and succeeds! You could be swept along with them, taken in or on a trip of a lifetime! Learning is fast and the risk quite tempting! Pluto in Cap may save you from yourself!

Jupiter inconjunct Pluto may light the fires of Hell as it recently has – Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano, Mexico’s Colima Volcano, plus Nepal’s quake! It can be the glamour story of the century, or fizzle so sadly. Jupiter may be crushed by Pluto in Cap’s skepticism, or vindicated by their recognition of the possibilities! Pluto may be annoyed by Jupiter’s endless stories, yet somehow fascinated at the insane potential and secretly astounded by the actual lucky results. Makes them a believer. Truth and consequences for better and worse.

In addition, Mars and Jupiter are both in exciting aspects to Uranus, the planet of universal change and genius! Uranus is in Mars’ sign Aries, split second fast! Jupiter enhances them both giving super lucky decisions! Mega communications, performances of magnitude. Publish, go public, have a grand opening even though Mercury is retrograde! Many successful world famous businesses have it Rx in their charts. Take the seminar; travel with friends. Get pregnant! Fame and Fortune! Mars will make the sextile with Uranus exactly on the 9th at 0:29 AM Pacific. That means the 8th is the action day unless you work at night. Puts a song in your heart! More on Jupiter super trine Uranus!

Jupiter is the lucky one! Here are the action aspects Pacific times and dates:

May 30   9:56 AM    Mercury conjunct Sun
June 2     6:31 PM    Moon trine Jupiter
June 5     4:38 PM    Mars sextile Jupiter

June 14   8:56 AM    Sun conjunct Mars
June 14   5:38 PM    Saturn back in Scorpio
June 22   6:43 AM   Jupiter trine Uranus!x

♦ The Jupiter Bow pattern with the Full Moon axis is the whipped cream for the strawberries! The Gemini Sun, as well as Mars, is sextile Jupiter. Sun is the Light, Jupiter theWayshower. Both like to share and teach, strut and play. It’s lucky to be who you are! And Jupiter is Sag’s planet, the sign the Moon is in. It’s a traveling party – on the boat, by train, a caravan. Or it’s a race you will never forget! Moon in Sag is happy go lucky, knows where to go and when. Bring the whole family! Let go the doubts; go for the good.

♦ By a Horary astrology term, Translation of Light, there is a Grand FIRE Trine too! This combination is not nearly in as close in degrees as the Bow, but still a blessing, blessings to come as the planets unfurl like a flower into exact connection with each other! Fire is Spirit personified! Uranus is in first Sign, first Fire sign Aries of Initiation; Jupiter is in Leo, fire sign of the Heart and Love; the Full Moon in Sagittarius is in the sign of the Seer, the great Prophets, the Path. The delight of a new Path with new friends in a new community may fill your Soul.

Be tasty!

New Moon ~
Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter Super Trine!
Tuesday June 16 at 7:05 AM Pacific – 25 Gemini 07

Gemini Depp Breathe Quote
Johnny is a June 9, 1963 Gemini and has Mercury conjunct Venus. No surprise he is often quoted and this is one of his quotes.  See his Chart!

Sun and Moon join, Sun infusing Moon with energy, Light, Moon relaying it on to Earth and us. At one degree opposite the Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius, the messages will be profound! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Gemini is considered the sign of the Word of Spirit, the Breath of Life. Sun is all powerful, Moon has her way, sometimes gentling Sun, giving a feminine blend. Things culminate and are celebrated as the cycle ends, a new one begins. At a tipping point, we are deep in shadow, but invested with potential, seeds of renewal, an innocent child quality. This late degree New Moon forms the last aspect while the Moon is in Gemini, leaving us in a Void of Course period, unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Take some moments to rest, steep in the brew. Be thankful for your breath. Prepare to speak from your Heart.

♦ Speedy Mars figures strongly in the Gemini NEW Moon as it did at the Full Moon! The Sun conjuncted Mars Sunday the 14th at 8:56 AM Pacific, and the Moon is exactly with Mars just an hour before the New Moon at 6:06 AM! Mars is an action planet where Gemini is more the thinker. Mars wants to do more than talk! Mars is a champion of the Word, and a superbly quick writer in Gemini. Talent is in the hands and eye! They are observant and the bringer of News and what’s new. They boldly poke about, leafing through anything and everything, discovery at their fingertips. They gather the data to back up what they say, and lead the way to new thinking, so right for a New Moon! Unasked, they are local adventurers, weaving their intelligence through neighborhoods and families. Independent thinking creates a wave of ideas for sweeping change, yet Mars is off on another tack as soon as a seed has taken hold!

♦ Mercury, Gemini’s planet, squares Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces the third and last time. Until it makes the exact aspect, June 23 at 11:09 AM Pacific, and maybe another three days or so, hold off on important irrevocable decisions or ones you can’t afford to have to change later. Mercury is logical, while Neptune goes by insight, spiritual guidance, empathy. Both are good, but they arrive at conclusions differently. Too compassionate and we may be taken advantage of, suffer sadness. Too logical and we may neglect kindness, cause delay as we think things through. Spiritually we may know what we want, and Mercury helps us get there in the real world by telling others about our dreams so others can know how to help us. Confusion and longing make us crazy, but they are natural stages that keep doors open while we are undecided and keep us going even when we don’t know how! See Mercury Retrograde!

♦ Mercury sextiles Venus in Leo. It will hold this aspect until exact for many days since Mercury is moving slowly after turning Direct June 11. The exact aspect won’t be made until July 5 at 1:19 AM Pacific. So research what you will do, but wait to make a decision until a few days after June 23, after the square with Neptune is over. Otherwise, the sweetest loving communications are intended. Appreciation, affection, gifts are given. Time to make pretty. Great design ideas, color choices, lovely remodeling, getting becoming hairstyles. You might pay a little more, but it’s worth it, makes you feel great! Let the breath flow….

Mercury is closely coming trine with the North Node in Libra! Libra is the next air sign, this one of relationships. How we say what’s up makes all the difference. The North Node is where we are a bit shy, still learning to balance with the opposite sign, in this case independent Aries. We need to know the good ways to be independent within relationships, to be ok with difference, be true to ourselves and let others be true to themselves. Trines usually are successful. At worst they are lazy and take things for granted and nothing happens at all. Sigh. Be conscious and take advantage of your opportunity to offer someone your regard.

♦ Jupiter and Uranus are now in the same degree! It is seven-days-close to the final exact super trine with Uranus June 22!!! We have been in it for months. The first was Sep 25, the second March 3. Jupiter enhances, is known for huge growth, expansion, wisdom, seeing the trends of time. Uranus is strange change, enlightened genius, explosions (like volcanoes and lightening), world community, computers and the internet, everything electric, wind turbine energy generators, flight! This is a classic fame & fortune combination. Publishing goes out to the multitudes. Grants and investors can be amazingly generous. Travel is easy and extraordinary at the same time. Research reveals some brilliant cures or incredible information long awaited. Make hay!
