There is a powerful set of planetary aspects leading up to Neptune entering its OWN SIGN Pisces!

April 1, April Fool’s Day, Mars enters its own sign Aries, making that then FIVE planets in ARIES!  Since Mars is in his perihelion year (closest to the Sun and moving fastest), recently at maximum perihelion March 9, he is still moving fast, speeding up our responses. In his own sign, things will be even more to the point and ASAP.  An independent note is alive, and survival has great depth of meaning after the Japan quake & tsunami.  Mars’ perihelion was only two days before the quake, and in Pisces, the sign of the ocean, tsunamis.  In a manner of speaking, there has been a tidal clearing, and now it is time to pioneer what will be one of the most amazing creations of our modern times.  The Japanese rebuilding will be able to model fuel efficient cities, improvements in transportation systems, will have opportunity to create life supporting communities that are green beyond our wildest dreams!  Tradition will encounter youth and inspiration.  It will take courage and tremendous respect to introduce and strategize improvements that will still be comfortable for elders, keep them feeling close to their roots, yet be better for them as well.  The Japanese have always been famous for their warriors.  Now it will take all their poise, to live on the edge of the sword in a good way.

April 3 is a remarkable day with the Aries New Moon leading at 7:32 AM Pacific, Mars conjunct Uranus 1:52 PM, and Saturn at Opposition (Sun) 4:58 PM!

April 3 the new Moon will be 13 Aries 30, and the Moon’s presence then makes SIX planets in ARIES!  Often New Moons are quiet affairs, but this one may not be so.  Aries isn’t famous for quiet or staying in bed, so don’t be surprised if you feel yourself being prodded to action.  Since it is early Sunday morning, why not plan ahead for something new for breakfast, try out a new recipe, go out to a restaurant with a sunrise view!  Maybe there is a little project you would love to get out of the way and it goes quickly.  Go see some new property, an open house.  Meet some friends for a bike ride!  You may not feel like Church, or the speaker may be super inspirational.  If you know others are going to be moving faster, plan ahead so you can do your best to keep up in cheerful spirits.  Have your cuppa at easy access.

April 3 Mars conjunct Uranus!   Happens every two years, so many of us are born with it, and we know what it means!  We love our computers, when we aren’t frustrated with them.  We have independent friends, lots of them.  We know what brainstorming and barnraising can do – multiply power, do what one can’t do alone.  Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help simply because we are curious what will happen if we don’t.  Sometimes we are brought to our knees and we are so touched by help given even when we didn’t ask.  This conjunction is in ARIES, so independence is even more pronounced.  Add in the ability to be the fighter, for better or worse.  Exuberance and enthusiasm may be over the top, to you, but not to the person who has this in their chart!  They are just getting started!  Give them room, and let them run circles around you – they can work, you can watch!  That’s divine economy, right?  Give them an electric bicycle!  They will be thrilled.

Worldwide, the day of, or the day before or after, may bring surprising news, more crisis fighting, rebels may renew their fight, huge explosions, angry words, shocking votes, affairs or improprieties.  There is a lot of stress with a New Moon (Sun and Moon both pulling at the same side) and the Sun opposition Saturn pulling at each other.  

April 3 Annual Saturn at Opposition (the Sun). The ringed planet will be at its closest approach to Earth. This is the best time to view and photograph Saturn and its moons. For us in everyday life, Mar 30 to Apr 3 is during Mercury retrograde, and also, by its own nature, is not a time to start a new project. Yet, many will, and the challenges will be to overcome fears, depression, decipher what’s real, how much time it will take, how to access resources and tools, whether to give in or give up. If you overcome the difficulties, it will feel like such an achievement. You may not smile, or there may be a sober one, but there’s a good chance you will be glad you went ahead. Be ready for it to be a continual learning experience, and each step may go far more quickly than you ever thought possible. When you reach those breaking points, sleep on it, see how it goes the next day. Follow your heart.

This aspect involves creator Father Sun, and patriarchal guardian, Father Time Saturn, of age and mastership.  Fathers.  Sun is Self, your individual giving self.  Saturn, planet of achievement, says you must prove yourself, earn it.  At opposition suggests a standing apart, in full appraisal of the advantages of both positions.  Sometimes it calls for letting go, other times a shaking of hands across the table, mutual respect.  One is simply at large; the other demands you take full responsibility.  Does your career choice sit well with your Spirit?  Are you making the same choices as your Father did, your Mother wanted your Father to make?  Is that ok with you, or do you need to rebalance your choices?   

It’s like all the equipment is in order!  Mars is feisty in its own sign, getting things done.  Conjunct Uranus it is super charged, electrified!  The New Moon stamps the ticket for new beginnings, firey and forward!  Sun Saturn add a serious, collect yourself, let’s get the job done!  Now…. 

Here is the chart of Neptune into Pisces, Santa Barbara CA! 

Neptune into Pisces 2011, Santa Barbara CA

April 4 NEPTUNE enters its own sign PISCES, during a SIX planet Aries stellium, which happens to be in three pairings:  Mars conjunct Uranus – innovation & change, the Sun conjunct Jupiter – lucky & expansive, and Mercury conjunct Moon – puts words to the feelings & mindful of women! 

It’s nothing new that Neptune and Chiron have been traveling together.  Now they are both in Pisces.  Please see Chiron into Pisces.  Chiron is traveling about two times as fast as Neptune, so will be moving on, leaving Neptune behind, though both will be in Pisces for the next seven years.

Neptune enters its own sign Pisces only once every 168 years, and we get to experience it!  The day after Saturn at opposition and the Aries NEW MOON, in the middle of all the ARIES excitement, Neptune, planet of Pisces, quietly goes into Pisces!  Neptune/Pisces represent enchantment, addictions, art, music, Magic, starlit nights at sea, howling gales over the ocean, retreats, Spirit, dreams, visions, psychic awareness, the Unseen, the Great Mystery. In the mid of Aries’ fast amped pace, take time to check in with your Spirit Guides, pay attention to your intuition, get the rest you need. Walk on the wharf. Get some negative ions up your nose, clear your brain space with some peppery salt air! Feel the crash of the waves, take off your shoes. Take the cruise you’ve always wanted to, let the wind whistle between your teeth!  If you live inland, get to the sea when you can; do your equivalent. Meditate, imagine. Plant your seed dreams.  Rise and fall on the waters of life.  Rock in the cradle of the primordial ocean, where life crawled out of the sea…..

Trust is a primal matter.  After Japan, some will look askance at my talking of the sea the way I have.  Yet, those of us who live by the sea, feel her calling.  We live at her edge, see her seasons, her rhythm, astonishing sunrises and sunsets.  We develop respect because we see her take what she does.  It’s true.  Some drown, some are eaten.  Yet, she comforts us, shows us magnificence, gives us gratitude, perspective, humbles us with her sheer size and intricate tiny creatures.  Most of us won’t move away.

This is early days yet, only the first few degrees of Pisces will be really activated so far – those of you born the first few days of your signs. Your turn will come. It may be challenging for the other mutable signs, Gemini, Sagittarius are square, and Virgo opposite. Gemini wants to talk; Pisces loves solitude and silence. Sagittarius is puppy dog friendly, likes to tell stories; Pisces, loves solitude and silence. Virgo likes to dig in, figure things out; Pisces uses intuition. Cancer and Scorpio are the other Water Signs. All function at instinctual levels, Cancer in behalf of home and family, Scorpio for one’s mate and money, Pisces for God and Soul.

Aug 4 Neptune retrogrades back into Aquarius, reviews its network of spiritual friendships, weakspots in the web may be repaired.  Feb 3, 2012, Neptune reenters Pisces until Jan 2026, 14 years.

I wish you well on this Magical Visionary Voyage we are all about to encounter!

We have Ascendants, are descendants of those who went before us. Why not be Transcendents?!

And how do you do that? Most of all, if you are making good progress yourself, how did you do it, how do you teach others how to do that? Not only are we transcendent, but we bestow transcendence – another level of transcendence!

By example is, perhaps, the simplest. Just do, be, the thing you want to see happen.  Like a smile.

With empathy. Compassionate understanding of different abilities, personal histories, past lives, can make an incredible difference when nothing else makes sense. Be alert to the needs of others, their capacity, readiness.

Tease the Spirit into play. Do things that are exciting, engage happiness! That could mean blood moving exercise, art that pulls the heart, giving tools of an enticing trade, maybe a video camera or keyboard, sailboat, vineyard, dance tutoring, a trip to a sacred place event – could be a meditation retreat.

Keen Spirited Pisces Photographer Ansel Adams

Feb 20, 1902, a true Pisces visionary see-er, Ansel Adams, keen musician, amazing Photographer, is a great example.  He did what he loved.  Sun & Mars in Pisces, Mercury trine Neptune, the Pisces planet, both retrograde. Blessed with an eidetic memory. Member of the Sierra Club, his images of Yosemite all seasons, were breathtakingly inspiring.

Education and Sales are close cousins. Each hopes to inspire you, telling you all the virtues, forms of transference of mental wealth.  Your offering can be made seriously with quiet grace, or shouted laughingly with ‘Let’s do it’s!

However you go, minute by minute, year by year, dramatically or minutely, seen or completely unseen, internally, transcendence happens. Evolution is. Grace is. Not one other person may ever understand or ‘see’ you morph. Yet it happens. A day may come when people look at you and say, ‘You’ve changed.’ And, yes, you have.

It takes the time it takes. It is honorable. It is your Soul’s way of learning its own kind of temperance, spiritual patience, an internal strength and courage.

Blessed be. In gratitude.  Keep your Light shining and your vision clear.

Feb 20 to 22, we have a lot of Pisces flavor as first Mercury, then Mars conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s planet on the 20th. The 21st Mercury enters Pisces, then the 22, Mars enters Pisces. Concentration may be exquisitely focused, or exquisitely seeking in a field of diffusion, bumping into what might never have been seen if you hadn’t meandered, toeing over the fringe of consciousness into other realms. Rescue me and take me with you!

Feb 21 Happy Presidents Day!

Feb 22 to March 9 Five planets in Pisces! It starts with a powerful Mars, Chiron, Mercury, Sun conjunction from 0 to 4 degrees! Mars gives Pisces more pizzazz than usual! Makes me think it is readying things for the big March 21 to May 15 Aries (Mars’s Sign) 56 day Stellium! Mars will energize Chiron, light up its healing and teaching, heat up mates and marriages, add exercise like swimming or dancing to its repertoire, inspire leadership as a healing morality. It fights for the underdog, may be the underdog, yet in teaching will step courageously onto new ground. The Sacred Hunter will seek his magical Beloved. Mars with Mercury and the Sun in Pisces will ignite the dream in a very personal sense. This will be specially so if your birthday is the first four days of Pisces, and its grand cross mates, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius. Innovative words and unique, yet Universal, ways of personal expression, will cause others to follow in their own special ways, a symphony of Beings.

Time to step it up with those dancing shoes…..

PART 1, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights!

Sign Changes, Jupiter Transits, Stelliums – Planets in the Same Sign, 56 day Super Aries Stellium, Bowls!

Some of these you will definitely want to mark on your calendar, be aware of, plan ahead for! So, with your appointment book/calendar in hand….

Early Year Sign Changes – Jan 22 to Apr 4 we have five!
This will be a time of changing needs, no final decisions, be flexible, seek what is better, be proactive!

Jupiter changes signs every year, but this year’s Aries into Taurus sweep happens in a breathtaking 4 months, 13 days, Jan 22 to June 4!
Feb 8 Chiron enters Pisces
Mar 11 Uranus enters Aries joining Jupiter
Apr 4 Neptune enters its own sign PISCES (only once every 168 years, and we get to experience it!), Aug 4 it retrogrades back into Aquarius

Transits to Transits, Jupiter’s Blessings!
Jupiter is the only planet that makes aspects to the outer planets in 2011 and makes two more, to finish its sweep, Valentine’s Day and Mar 12 of 2012! Quite a run, and a great lead into 2012! Jupiter’s Luck is keenly sought! Time for marriage and business charts! Call me to help you pick the best, specific for YOU!

        Date          Aspect          Occurrence
+/-    Jan 4   Conjunct Uranus    3rd
—    Feb 25   Square Pluto           3rd
—    Mar 28   Opposite Saturn     3rd
+    June 8   Sextile Neptune    Once
+     July 2   Sextile Chiron          1st
++   July 7   Trine Pluto               1st
++  Oct 28   Trine Pluto              2nd
+     Dec 6   Sextile Chiron         2nd

Stelliums, Planets in the Same Sign (I’m including Chiron)
There are many 4 planet groups in 2011, in Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus, and Sagittarius, but none to compare with the phenomenal ARIES Stellium: 4 to 6 planets in ARIES from Mar 21 to May 15! 56 Days! From April 1 to May 11, there are continuously 5 and 6! That’s half of our 10/11 planets! Think of the charts of children born at that time!

The long duration of this stellium is what makes it so phenomenal! The anchor planets are the slow mover Uranus and faster Jupiter, with Mars on its 2 year cycle, and the annual planets in turn, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and the Moon twice, at the beginning and end! Part of what keeps it going is that Mercury Retrogrades Mar 30 to Apr 23, remaining in Aries longer than would usually be!

Aries is THE highly spirited fire sign, on-the-spot intuition, split second reaction times! Their courage and fearlessness are totally inspiring, leadership is something they do without thinking, it’s normal. They love new ventures, put their whole heart into it, and never look back. If one thing doesn’t work, no crying and moaning, nary an apology, next! They do put their partners on pedestals, and being only human, oops, there are falls from grace. Sigh. But, hey, onward, right?! Pick yourself up and off you go! There is a simpleness of intent, childlike exuberance, sometimes naïve, but well intended. Help them if you can keep up.

Aries Super Stellium High Points!
April 1, Mars, the planet of Aries, enters Aries, making that 5 planets in Aries!
April 2, the Moon joins, making that now 6 planets in Aries!
The Aries NEW MOON is April 3, just as powerful as it can be!
April 4 the Moon enters Taurus, we’re back to 5 planets in Aries.
April 20/21, the Sun enters Taurus as Venus enters Aries, and the amazing 5 planet Aries stellium continues!
April 29 the Moon joins making it SIX, again!!!!
May1 Moon enters Taurus, so we are back to 5
May 11 Mars enters Taurus and we are back to 4!

Feb 3-4     SIX planet Aquarian New Moon stellium, Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!
