Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

Full Moon Party at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa! Guests will feast on a three-course meal from Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen on the 5th Floor Oceanfront Terrace before celebrating the night away! Fort Lauderdale, FL 

Happy Harvest Moon! This year the Full Moon nearest the Autumnal Equinox is in October. It is also called the Hunter’s Moon, Travel or Dying Moon. It is end of summer, beginning of Fall. Leaves are ‘falling,’ days are shortening, it’s getting cooler. Gardeners harvest; Hunters gather and process game for winter stores. Now that harvest is done, we are free to travel.

This year, in social Libra, it is a time to gather with loved ones outdoors, eat sweet moon cakes, admire the harvest moon, and celebrate the abundance of life. The full moon is a symbol of prosperity, wholeness, and reunion. Family and friends—no matter where they are in the world—can gaze upon and enjoy the same beautiful moon. No matter what happens, you have each other! If you are in a fire or storm area, please take some time to give thanks with new friends. To those of you who are hurting, maybe alone for now, we send our love always. Bless you and keep you and yours.

Mercury and Sun are together this Libran Full Moon. Mercury is being very aware and thoughtful of others. Communications are vital when there are disasters or political shakeups. A cool head and a lot of heart can bring people together in unusual circumstances. In spite of discomforts and fear, this is a huge opportunity. Unlikely champions will rise. Prejudicial limitations will seem senseless. We just help each other because we need help. Lifelong friendships will be made across all lines.

The Moon, always opposite the Sun at Full Moons, is in Aries, the sign of forthright action, first responders, leaders. The Moon is unconditional love and support and independently gathers the food and distributes it as needed. We are all Family. This support gives rise to a grateful independence, more assertiveness, fights for rights of our own and in behalf of others, especially for children.

Sun/Mercury and Moon are directly tied with Neptune! Mercury and Sun are inconjunct, askew Neptune. Mercury is logic, Neptune is not. Neptune the Dreamier is more soulful and psychic, impressionistic. Mercury talks, writes lyrics, while Neptune listens or makes music to the words. Sun in Libra brings people, maybe artists, to meet Neptune, but he may be away in the Ashram or not available until late in the night. Neptune may be brightened by the visit but glad when he has his solitude again. Moon in Aries is hard pressed to slow down for these things. She may push too much and lose the game, or the others may catch on and see it’s important not to miss out or delay important progress by not keeping up!

Oppositions have an across-the-table quality. There you are, right before me. We may be different, but we can shake hands, discuss our mutual goals, divvy up the work between us. We may do it differently, but together we can get there! Sun lights the way, Moon supports and reflects the Light to others! Teamwork!

Cardinal T Square! They are bringing the Light to bear on Pluto, a planet of darkness, a holder of secrets and healing! In Capricorn, Pluto is in the Moon’s opposite sign. There is a resonance since Moon rules Mothers and Capricorn is Fathers! The challenge is to raise Pluto’s sights from old ways that used to work, were necessary then, to fresh options and new alliances. Sometimes the Healer needs rescuing! On the other hand, Moon, Sun and Mercury may need to pass through Pluto’s cleansing gateway before they may go on. There is a test for both sides. Will Pluto see the Light? Will the upstarts clear themselves with the Master? Likely there will be a little temporary consternation and perhaps a little chaos, but the Cardinal signs rarely forego a good challenge! They have natural inborn jump starters!

The Mutable T Square starts with Mars and Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, they in turn square Saturn in Sagittarius! This one is more long term since Saturn takes until Nov 2 to square Chiron. The Venus/Mars conjunction is really fresh! It just happened at 9:53 AM Pacific, just a couple hours before the Harvest Moon! There are details to consider, reorganization that pays off. Distribution is needed. Mars does what it takes. Venus goes ahead of him advertising the values of the opportunity! Though working independently for the time being, Mars could use some partners for his project, cause. Chiron may be asleep over there in Pisces, but senses the shift and stirs. Something has happened and as a healer, he is curious what Virgo has started. He prefers herbs and natural remedies when possible.

Saturn, having been in Sagittarius for a while now, is more amenable to learning about healthy remedies that increase longevity. Not only is it important what we learn, but how we learn it, what we do with it and when. Virgos test their ideas, the quality is there as they promise. They are expert at hands on training. Chiron sees the value of the body/mind connection as well of those with the Soul. Saturn thinks this is a working tenet, so engages, giving what time and support he can, lending his name.

Sep 27 Jupiter opposed Uranus! People have been having huge differences of principles, ethics. Politically balances of social constructs have been undergoing dramatic change. Natural disasters have forced people from their homes, families have separated to survive, or from the result of new laws. Fires, floods, earthquakes. Fear has occurred on so many levels. Change, evolution is inevitable, but recently it has been high chaos and tumult! So much at once. Jupiter is the planet of magnitude, Uranus is the masses. No one escapes! I’ve written how Libra is a sign of recovery of balance. While Jupiter is still in Libra until Oct 10, use its ability for all its worth. See where it currently is traversing your personal astrology chart and work it! Together, consciously and well focused, we can get a lot done. So many are stepping up to the plate, ie our super hero this month! JJ Watt, only 28 years old, has raised over $37M Harvey Relief Funds!

Also yet to come is Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11 – 11-11! They are currently 5 degrees apart, but closing. Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first Nov 2. First is a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

All the outer planets are involved in our Harvest Moon – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! This Full Moon is linked with long term factors. AND, ALL the Full Moon inner planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – activate all the outer planets! They all spur the outer planets on, and are themselves changed by the encounters. Not one planet is in a Fixed sign, holding things steady. It’s not the time for it. The Cardinal planets get things moving; the Mutable planets make the accommodations to facilitate flow! It’s a grand integration, truly FULL!x

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus! 

Thursday October 19, at 12:12 PM Pacific, 26 Libra 35!

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

This thin crescent is post Sunset just after a New Moon.

This is the first lunar event of Jupiter newly in Scorpio as of ten, ten, Oct 10th! The context is wholly different now. It’s been 11/12 years, since Oct 2006, and all the outer planets have changed signs! Saturn has been through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, now in Sagittarius! Scorpio wants it deep and bonded – for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, ’til death do us part. Lifelong. Jupiter wants vital education for a prosperous future for life to be exceptionally blessed. The stakes are high. When it can, Libra offers the connections needed to enhance the opportunity for it to happen.

Libra is the Sunset time of day. It is the Sign of gathering after the day’s work, sharing what the day brought, planning the next day. It’s a time of equanimity, between day and night, equal at Equinox. We welcome a quieter time of day and year. Days will be shorter and it’s cooler. Some time will be spent in contemplation, creating art that tells our story, makes beauty. We will spend more time indoors together. Rather than scattering for evenings outdoors, we gather indoors for dances, theatre, symphonies, art shows. Being social is natural.

A dark night in Libra can be a most potent meeting of Self and Soul. The Moon relates to her people – forbears and children. The Sun relates to his own heart, his courage, his expression of Light. Together they merge the past with creating a powerful union for the future.

At 26 Libra the New Moon is sextile the Galactic Center, opposite Uranus, the planet of the Heavens! And the New Moon is just past the exact inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher.

Saturn, 23 Sagittarius, is now very near the GC at 26 Sagittarius 59! Saturn will be at the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Again, Saturn will trine Uranus, only 3 degrees apart now, exact eleven eleven, Nov 11! This is the third and last time. As before, Dec 24, 2016 and May 18, 2017, Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work. New careers of deeper meaning will be created and forged. See more!

This aspect is important because Uranus is 26 Aries 31, directly opposite the New Moon and trine the Galactic Center! There is no chance things will stay the same! You might be scared or so excited you can hardly contain yourself, both! Evolution is! Aries is the leader, champion. Uranus and Aries can be solo, or they can be a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Libra has more propriety, but is also a sign of leadership, making connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity! Can’t be done without them. Infusion from the great center of the Galaxy will be potently activating many Souls at this New Moon!

All this will be considered under the auspice of Moon and Sun having inconjunted Chiron in Pisces. Healing insightfully, mindfully, with appropriate timing, with no condescension, is sometimes a delicate achievement. Making your patient, client, student a ‘partner’ in their own healing creates a powerful union.

This aspect helps prepare us for the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron the third time. That is generally not an easy aspect. It may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces with a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it! You can. See more!

Mercury just conjuncted Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time in 11/12 years! What an intense consult! There may have been some awkward moments as we get used to this new energy. Mercury is clever with words, but it’s still a new language. Mercury is rarely overwhelmed, but this time he may have reach for it! Jupiter offers as much as you can take, and Scorpio is famous for extremes!

As with Chiron, Scorpio calls for healing. Jupiter heals and updates our purpose. Mercury heals our mind and communications, thinking and learning skills. What you say, how you say it makes a difference. Jupiter wants the whole Truth. Scorpio may protect what must be protected, but also release important revelations. Mercury’s choice is whether to keep the secret and find a way to bring information to help without letting others know their source or the full story. Or, it may be time to do the journaling and exposé, clean up the mess. Could be a little dangerous. Watch out for compulsions and obsessive mind sets. No verbal abuse – none given, none accepted. No being mean or scornful and self righteously thinking it’s ok because you are ‘right.’ Stay clean. Jupiter has a lot of hope, no matter how ‘dark’ the times may seem. Often things you don’t know about are at work in your behalf. Wait for it. Scorpio is the sign of rising from the dead, the Phoenix from its own ashes! That’s a tough combo to beat. Mercury is good at slipping through the cracks out of harm’s way! Stay with it and don’t give up!

That should be doable with Venus in her own sign Libra watching carefully and treading lightly. She is neighborly semisextile to Mercury. Keep the dance moving, adjust your center as you move. Remember that balance is a living medium, rarely equal or symmetrical. Grace may be more the word. Beauty marks the passage. Kindness shows the way.

Upcoming Saturn aspects make this an important New Moon, as well as this Moon being the first Lunar event in Jupiter in Scorpio! Relationships we make, and how we relate, are critical to our success. Jupiter enjoys Libra – studies, travel, fun! Scorpio is Libra’s astrological neighbor leading the way. Libra supports. In old astrology, Saturn was considered to be exalted, in its best placement in Libra. Libra rules Lawyers, Saturn is the Law! Jupiter is judges! Law is not just what is on the books, but what is in our hearts and the laws of how we treat each other. How we judge, looking for the best in others, keeps us all working for a positive future.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon!  Regulus & a lot of Mercury! 

New Moon!  Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

The Virgo Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well!

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique! It was the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that was at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle started – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde started August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects you started from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse was during the Retrograde part of the cycle! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

The Rx cycle includes two signs: Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Aug 21 SECOND Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE! …at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!

Augx22   Happy Virgo!

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon! – Regulus & a lot of Mercury!

Wednesday Sep 6, at 00.03 AM Pacific, 13 Virgo/Pisces 53!  

Virgo 2017 Full Moon Clouds Pink

Sep 5 Mercury goes Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse degree! When a planet turns direction, it is called being in Station – being still in the sky, with no apparent visual motion. With Mercury it is an 8 day period, 4 before, 4 after the turn. There is an in dwelling, a deepening focus, a thorough examination of the matters at hand, strengthening, an anchoring of a thought or principle. Choose your thoughts carefully, select the best of your hopes and plans. Though the Full Moon doesn’t connect with Mercury by degree, Sun and Moon are held in this stance, place of mind. If you stand still until you really see. The differences of Moon in Pisces, Sun in Virto, become more apparent, each having its own value, a necessary contributor to the greater cause. At the time of the Eclipse, Moon and Sun were in Leo. Now they are spanning Virgo to Pisces. Time to use the Leo heart energy to take the next step, make your dreams come true.

This Full Moon is Moon in Pisces, the Master Dreamer and Visionary, opposite Sun in Virgo the DNA LightWeaver, Healing Goddess! Pisces Moon is at the mast! She holds the Voyage, sometimes adrift, sometimes fearlessly surging through a gale and high seas! Virgo charts the stars, minds the crew, weaves their Souls intricately in fine patterns to get the job done most magnificently! Each compliments the other. When Moon is spread too thin, Sun in Virgo gathers in the bits so they pull together. When Virgo over thinks, worries, Pisces reminds that there are greater powers that guide us and the cause is the cause, always!

Moon has just been with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet, so she knows this to be doubly true, formidable, and psychically uncannily accurate! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time.

Moon is inconjunct Venus in Leo! There will be a call to the arts – music, film, video, theatre. There will be the grace of water sports – wind sailing, paddle boards, surfing and sailing, kayaking. Seeing the world on an ocean cruise will fulfill a need to connect beyond the ordinary. There may be a mediation group or Tai Chi, Yoga class that brings you to silence, peace, serenity, tranquility. As super new things change in your life, old addictions that held you captive will be forgotten and replaced with a vibrant competence. There are new reasons for living, possibly a sweetheart becomes apparent, steps up!

Sun in Virgo is radiant. She plants seeds, walks in the woods. She clears and cleans letting bright light shine. She creates space that allows mind clearing air flow! Flowers bloom leading us to heal more quickly. Deep breath. Sun trines, a strong favorable connection, with Pluto, the Master of the Underworld, yet the Phoenix that rises, lives again! Revelation fired by the Kundalini, the energy at the base of our spines, uplifts us to the Eagle’s keen perception. Virgo sees the illness, keeps us comfortable that Pluto may heal the cause. As humans we come with some flaws, a work in progress. Some matters that need healing are from past lives, others are when we have harmed ourselves, or been harmed by others. It’s a challenging job to weed out and sort the mess, but Pluto is undaunted by complex circumstances. Pluto, in Capricorn, drives the effort. He knows how valuable an experienced person can be, how strong they are to have faced it and made it. Virgo is there all the time with that candle, bringing Light to the Dark. She makes sure the spiritual operating theatre is good for the work and is skillful at rewiring old mindsets.

Moon and Neptune are right there too, sextiling Pluto. They are intuitive to each other, speak and see as one. They see the child, how parental and cultural background has significance. They see how broken or abandoned dreams have had consequence and speak to subtleties about how to process their release. They know how to instill a greater vision now that times have changed and the person is more mature and able.

28 LEO Mercury stands close to the Inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces and trine with Uranus in Aries, but it is just whispers and hints, faint reminders. Mercury inconjuncted Chiron and trined Uranus back on about July 22nd, and on July 24th. So much has happened since then. The context has changed… What is significant is 28 Leo was the degree of the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! Whatever was special to you about that Eclipse, it is time to think on and talk about! Remember, Mercury in Leo is in station, so we want to anchor your best ideas, the ones of heart and Light, ones with special potential. I hope you made some notes at Eclipse time, because it isn’t over yet if that Eclipse activated your chart! (See your astrologer!)

While stationed in Leo, Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet considered to be the highest echelon of intelligence! Mercury is quick on his winged feet spreading the news, but Uranus the genius rules the Universe, evolution, awakening, flight, and the Internet, LOL! But really, what can one do without the other?! Mercury needs information to share; Uranus needs someone to spread the Word! Mercury teaches us how to learn, speak well in a good way. Uranus opens us to realms of Being we never knew existed! Both are essential. Uranus is currently in Aries the sign of Initiation, champions, leaders! Leo is the HeartLight, creation, young people finding themselves. Love and leading go well together! Uranus will surely change our minds for the better in that 8 day station! We will keep the thoughts, add a few of our own, and let them be known far and wide. Bright.

Mercury in Leo, hopefully with grand projects on his mind, is just about to change signs into Virgo Sep 9, catch up with Mars Sep 16, and make like a sphinx with him! Half Lion, half Woman, the Sphinx embodies the Leo/Virgo signs – Leo the Lion, Virgo the Virgin. There is much to talk about and you can be assured that champion, hero Mars will quickly do his very best to help Mercury with the work! Mercury will be gaining momentum after the turn, moves right along, passing Mars, on to the next project.

Mars newly at 0 Virgo is conjunct fixed star Regulus, so you can expect his contribution to be elegant and maximum! Regulus used to be in Leo. It was one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the watcher of the South, the King! Now in Virgo, I dub him/her the Healing Goddess! Maybe Chiron is her planet. Mars wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time! He is quite capable of giving the boot to the next level! Quick to analyze, he gives you a shove it he thinks you can make it! He encourages, is right to the point. He inspires you instantly! In Virgo he gets you exercising perfectly per your conditions! Oxygen gets to your brain and fuels your next choice! He gets you charged then passes you right by, on his way to the next spiritual soldier that needs a boost!

Jupiter and Saturn made their sextile but are still plenty close and active. Lots of plans made and a ton getting done! Jupiter is finishing last days in Libra. Social relationships are being made, groomed, extended into greater territories. We are committing to distant travels and tours, and superior education. Publishing our works is important, probably timely. Political ethics and justice are getting a workout from grassroots to corporate levels. See more!

Sep 23 and 27 are the next aspects coming, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! These will be the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. As Jupiter moves in closer, the aspects will be in the traditional ranges thought to have effect. After them, Saturn will be squaring Chiron Nov 2.

Besides being about Virgo and Pisces, this Full Moon is a lot about Mercury. They are tied together because Mercury rules Virgo and the retrograde ties to the Moons! As one teacher said, ‘Where your attention goes, your energy flows.’ Straight ahead!

New Moon! Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

Tuesday September 19, at 10:30 PM Pacific, 27 Virgo 27!

Virgo 2017 New Crescent Moon Cleaning Stars

Virgo angels are often at work making our lives brighter, even at New Moon time! 

As is said above, the Virgo Full and New Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde Cycle! Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well! The SAME DAY of our New Moon at 27 Virgo, the Mercury Retrograde Cycle finishes at 11 Virgo! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Mercury rules communications – speaking, listening. The four moons connected with Mercury’s Retrograde cycle have each brought a special perception. It is fitting the whole cycle matures, finishes in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign! Virgo organizes our thoughts, fits the puzzle pieces together, expedites the project to a polished and quality result!

4 Occultations! There is a unique lead in energy preparing this New Moon. Pacific time, Sep 17 Venus at 27 Leo, the star Regulus at 0 Virgo, Sep 18 Mars at 8 Virgo and Mercury at 10 Virgo are occulted! Occultations are mini eclipses! The Moon and those planets are perfectly lined up! That’s three inner planets in two days. Channels are open from and to those three planets! There is a purity. Messages are clear and potent! Venus of values and grace, star Regulus the heart of the constellation of Leo the Lion and at the crossroad of Leo/VIrgo – the Sphinx (half Lion, half Woman), Mars the leader and champion, Mercury of communications – transmit and listen! The 19th Venus enters Virgo just in time for the New Moon!

The occultations occur in less than 24-hours time. This will be the first time since March 5, 2008, that three planets have been occulted by the moon in less than one day. The next time won’t be until July 24, 2036.

With this New Moon having FIVE planets, a stellium, in Virgo, including Mercury in his own sign Virgo, we can safely say things will get done, and well! Virgo is a common sense Earth sign, a hard worker, last one to leave the office!

Moon with Sun is a potent combination. Sun carries the Light, Moon gives support and give the unconditional love we need! Virgo is worker, at all kinds of enterprises that take care of us on a daily basis. Moon thinks that is terrific. She superlatively minds our nutrition, often has natural remedies, information that saves the day.

Virgo is purity, cleanliness of mind, body and location! She nags us, but the aim is to establish and maintain clear thinking. She adjusts our diet to prevent ailments, cheaper than a doctor, LOL! She detoxes us, and builds better health than ever before! She clears clutter that blocks and burdens us, organizes our lives for clear and streamlined action. Go, Virgo!

Venus just arrived, is at 0 degrees. She loves the work and wants it to be beautiful, valuable and lovingly composed! Might be a quilt or the subtle tints of the paint on the wall in the showroom! Patterns stir our consciousness, labyrinths lead to the center of the world! We relax in the loveliest flower gardens, grow the most healthy herbs and foods. Very sweet caregiver.

Mars in Virgo gives good measure for time spent! He works best independently. Definitely an Earth mover! Outdoors might be his forte. In construction put him to work on woodworking, the cabinets installations and clean up! He will be the best delivery person you ever had! He may volunteer to take food to home bound people and elders.

Moon naturally takes on the home nurturing role; Sun leads us to extend that service to our community! Virgos are very clever Souls and much sought after. There have always been tenders and nannies, butlers, caregivers and nurses and accountants. We couldn’t live without them! Well we could, but things are more better with them! They have specific amazing skills! They are downright excellent at garden care and landscaping. Botanic gardens…. Veterinary.

Mars and Mercury are opposite Neptune. He’s been waiting for them. Mercury and Neptune are each in their own signs. They are strongly placed. Neptune the dreamer and savior, offers insights to spiritual dilemmas, meditation to sooth the monkey mind. Mercury has just crossed Mars, and is supercharged! Mercury wants to learn everything at once, chat and do logic, give the news on these new discoveries! And Mercury discovers there is more than words. Empathy is important too. Mars, though generally forthright and furious, in Virgo is a bit more careful in it’s approach. Quiet tiptoes might be the way when with the sleeping Giant Neptune that sees all, especially if he is sleeping?! Rude questions and probing may provoke a chilled silence that is an unpredictable entity all its own. Oops. Ok, breathe. Gentle respect more likely due. Perhaps the technique and skill of the process is more important than the content of the encounter?

Mars and Mercury are trine Pluto in Capricorn! They all are Earth sign harmonious. Practical. Reasoning. Limits and laws. Mercury is forging ahead of Mars, first on the premises. Capricorn, the sign of elders and professionals, needs respect, and Pluto has a lot of private business. It may take a getting-to-know-you period before there is sharing. If you are offering services, you need to be bonded. If you are looking for a story be careful what you say. Mars might push a little harder than Mercury, but too much push can be felt to be suspicious. Pluto is always watching the back door. If it is an instant go ahead connection, you’re on! Ask your questions, offer innovative ideas, propose your price. If it is a personal relationship, while away the hours together, share secrets, do a project that fills your hearts!

The New Moon and Chiron have just made a T square with the Galactic Center! Squares can be a nuisance, blocks, but they also bring breakthroughs and building! Chiron is soulfully diligent seeking cures of body and mind, but in Pisces more of Spirit. Sometimes we get a wee bit lost, could be fears, addictions, cloudy vision, depleted dreamtime or dreams too vivid. At the point of the T Square,the Galactic Center is in Sagittarius, the place of the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It is a fire sign that lights the way, points the direction to take! It is a cheerful sign of hope and optimistic there is a fine future ahead! This perspective helps us break free from old things that have haunted us.

The New Moon is also within minutes of inconjunct Uranus in Aries! The gateway is is oblique, off to the side. it isn’t mainstream, could even be brushed aside as too weird or off putting, but Moon is is concerned for her territory, so takes a look. Moon is leery of such an upstart and for good reason! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, evolutionist, ahead of its time. The Moon protects culture and the home, sudden changes can be scary, upset the Virgo family routine. Moon is also curious. In her cycles she sees many things and may be bored, and in Virgo she is always amenable to a better way. So she may choose to watch from a safe distance at first.

The Sun is the planet in natural opposition to Uranus. Sun rules Leo, opposite sign to Aquarius, Uranus’ sign. Sun in Virgo may feel somewhat similar to the Moon in this instance. Virgos are not usually robust champions. They are more delicately put together. Like feathers in the weather vane, they sense shifts in the valence, minute disruptions of natural order. But they all may have a quick consult. Uranus in Aries instantaneously inspires. As Moon and Sun go by, they will be excited by the possibilities!

27 Virgo squares the Fixed Stars Polaris and Betelgeuse. Both are at 28 Gemini, but in very different locations in the sky! Polaris is the Pole Star, at the North Pole of Earth, the stars appearing to rotate around it. Its declination is +89. It has long been a guiding star to sailors and caravans. The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star! Polaris has been given mixed interpretations of high honors, misery and spiritual power. I would think which or how much of each, would depend on how it is situated in a given chart and the aspects at a given time. In this case, both Sun and Moon in a challenge aspect it could indicate Gemini/Virgo mind/body challenges, honors lost or hard won, a block in communications since Gemini and Virgo are Mercury’s two signs! A clear direction may not be immediately apparent or without some effort.

The same square exists with Betelgeuse, but Betelgeuse, declination only +7, is entirely a different character! Rather than at the Pole, Orion is located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world! Polaris is at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear. Betelgeuse is in Orion’s right shoulder! Rather than the Guide, Betelgeuse is part of the hunter warrior! Great fortune and fame, especially military success, are potential, and it is also associated with calamities, danger, and violence! Warriors take their chances! Our New Moon in Virgo may contribute to strategies, might be a stealthy and clever hunter, but is rarely a warrior. Virgo may take care of the wounded, but would rather deal with Gemini’s commerce, offering business skills. Virgo may be grateful for Gemini’s news of new techniques and cures at the front, but will likely quietly incorporate it in it’s life on its own. Likely to be a meet, greet and move on. The Moon was on Betelgeuse when the 1st tower was struck on 9/11.

Moon’s North Node is retrograding to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Moon’s nodes are thought to link to past lives. The South is what we did, the North is how we want to balance that. In Leo, it is calling for Heart and Light, radiant being, a creative Spirit! Saturn is thought of as the Reaper, what we sow is what we get, or it is what we are responsible for. Sometimes we owe from past lives. In the process, we work toward Dharma, the work of the Soul. Often I find people who are living their Saturn, doing the work it symbolizes, are the happiest! Moons Nodes and Saturn symbolize a harmony of Moon, Mother, and Saturn, Father/Time. Leo to Sagittarius can be inspiring performance, teaching, sharing the best we have to give!

There are two outer planet combinations that the New Moon opens gateways to and prepares us for.

  • First is the Sep 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! They are the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. The new Moon is directly tied to all three! Jupiter is scouting for learning, healing. In Libra it wants to establish a friendly relationship, an open exchange. Jupiter may cheer Chiron in Pisces out of some of his wounds and worries. Chiron intuits Jupiter’s excesses and cheerfulness that covers any fears and failures. Ok to fail. Sometimes better that happened! This work is of great interest to Virgo who seeks natural balances, cures, and working relationships.
  • Opposite Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra is at some moments appalled by the indignity of seemingly aimless rushing about, yet is intrigued no end and finds himself in a new cosmic culture, dancing the dash! Haven’t had so much fun in ages, who cares what you look like?! Libra’s social meter may meet max trying to keep up with all those new acquaintances, but there is so much to learn and he doesn’t want to miss a thing! Extraordinary! They can make tremendous achievements together! Uranus has the genius and research; Libra knows the law and gets the patent!
  • Second is Saturn square Chiron, exact November 2. This is not considered an easy aspect by many. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows healing down, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, this time you may make a breakthrough and make a fresh start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it.

Those of you who tinker with the numbers probably have noticed the Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27! In astrology, the 2nd and 7th signs are Taurus and Libra, both Venus ruled. May Love and Beauty prevail! 2 + 7 is 9, as this New Moon completes the Mercury Retrograde cycle over a course of five lunar events!

As one lunar cycle ends, a new one begins. There is a maturity, ending, gratefulness, letting go, moving on. Natural. Take some quiet moments, have a circle gathering, rest, assess what’s up and in the wind. The foundation you have built will stand you in good stead for what’s to come. Sign by sign we follow the stars through the Year. Virgo is sign 6, halfway through, soon to tip the scale into Libra! Most honorable.

Blessed be ~

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.

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.
    x
    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

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.
