Comet 209P-LINEAR May 24 2014

May 24, 2014  Comet 209P / LINEAR – Possible Meteor Storm!  Russian astronomer, Mikhail Maslov, believes Earth will pass through the tail of Comet 209P / LINEAR between 7:00 and 8:00 UT on May 24, 2014. It could result in a meteor storm producing between 100 and 400 meteors an hour. Viewing conditions will be particularly good in Canada and the United States – the sky will be dark, the Moon a few days from new. Circle this date on your calendar.

Planetary Backdrop 

Uranus square Pluto Continues…. May 27, 2010 to March 16, 2015  The major outer planet shake-up combo, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn, continues throughout 2014, finishing Mar 16, 2015.  Two exact aspects are formed in 2014.  These two are five and six of the seven, April 21 and December 14, at 13 and 12 degrees.  We are almost done with them, just a little more than a year to go. Time to finesse financial affairs. The series has been as low as at 6 degrees; the last aspect, Mar 16.2015, will be at 15 degrees.  At one time or another it has probably activated something in your chart.  Or maybe it hasn’t yet and will these last times.

There will be several planetary challenge activations of the square as the Sun, Mercury and Venus go through Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, making their annual circuit, and as Mars challenges from Libra and Capricorn on its two year circuit.  Planets in your charts from 7 to 15 degrees in those Cardinal signs will be strongly affected as the transit planets go through.

Aspects Tallies  Per the classical major aspects of astrology, of 22 aspects, there were 12 favorable aspects and 10 difficult aspects in 2013.  2014 will have 16, 7 favorable, 9 difficult.  2015 has 13, 3 favorable, 10 difficult and of 16 in 2016 the ratio is 3:13!  I’m encouraging my business clients to get stable and well founded before 2015 and 2016, be ready to hold the fort and ride the waves.  Be in jobs and businesses or investments that thrive in hard times and in recovery.  Things happening since 2010, and now, are not over and done with.
2014 brings two outer planet sign changes.  Jupiter leaves Cancer and jumps into fiery Leo, telling taller tales than usual! performance ratings will be high!  For the majority of the year, Saturn, the TimeKeeper, stays in the comfort of dark Scorpio where it tends to finances and healing.  Dec 23 it moves into Sagittarius, to get out into the world and travel a bit. Actually, the Goat doesn’t mind those mountains a bit! It is surefooted and frugal by nature.

Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

NEW Year’s Day 2014 opens with a Capricorn NEW Moon that has a 5 planet Capricorn Stellium!  That’s double New!  Capricorn focus and intentions are on work, fathering, building, climbing.  Solidarity, conservation, protection, right timing.  Bending the knees, but not burdened.  Archetypes, archaeology, human and spiritual law.  Profound tests, responsible leadership, senior wisdom.


Wedge to Cardinal Grand Square

Allowing a 5 degree range, Jupiter retrograde in Cancer opens the year starting a Wedge pattern (opposition base with a trine/sextile third point planet) Jan 6, and activating the Uranus square Pluto for an extended time!  It will be opposite Pluto at 12 degrees Jan 31, trine Chiron at 11 degrees Feb 5.  Chiron holds the energy as it sextiles Pluto at 13 degrees, the 5th of five times, Feb 25.   That same day, Jupiter having been slowly retrograding, for the 2nd time, and intensely in a same degree station, squares Uranus at 10 degrees, turns direct only 5 days later, makes the 3rd, last of 3 squares to Uranus April 20 at 13 degrees!  It opposes Pluto at 3:58 PM Pacific!  It is making a 5 minute, not degrees (60 minutes in a degree), exact outer planet T Square with the Uranus/Pluto square all day the 20th!  April 21, Uranus squares Pluto the 5th of the seven times.  You see how tight this pattern is.  Plus, April 8, Mars retrograde in Libra has come back, forming a 12 day Grand Cardinal Square!  April 20/21, Mars now at 14 Libra, is the pepper in the pot, making it a hot one degree CARDINAL GRAND SQUARE!  This one won’t be swept under the rug!  In order: 

  • Jan 31 and Feb 5 Jupiter, Chiron, Pluto Wedge is first – Secrets will out, healing will happen, plans will be made.  Step up to the plate, you can do it! 
  • Feb 25 Chiron sextile Pluto – Fear of power and success, betrayals, jealousy, spite, scorn, revenge, have a chance to be let go.  Time to let go of denial, do honest business with yourself and others.
  • Feb 25 to April 20 Jupiter square Uranus – You could run away, far, far away, but it won’t get the job done.  Not usually.  But if necessary to save yourself until you are stronger, do it.  You may lose some friends and find others in unexpected places.  Shed the alliances that are no longer working.
  • April 20, 21 Cardinal Grand Square culminates – The temptation is to exaggerate, and that may be temporarily necessary to make your point, get people to think.  If you get heated, take time out immediately.  Don’t say or do something that can’t be taken back.  With Pluto in the mix there may be no forgiveness this lifetime!  Some will want their way and appear to use any means to get it.  Others will show extraordinary kindness in the face of great difficulty.  This Grand Cross involves personal and home and family matters, marriage type relationships and business.  There will be a lot on our plates.  Be informed.  Take your best stuff to the negotiating table.  Put yourself in the other person’s place, but stand your ground.  If negotiating can’t work, let it go with what Grace you can muster.  Avoid blaming; do your part.  Get what you can get in a good way, or don’t do it.  But if you do, know there will be a price down the road.

Here is the Grand Square (red square lines) chart on the 17th with Venus in the mix! She trines Jupiter, sextiles Pluto, semi sextiles Uranus, all at 13 degrees!  Carefully played, and choosing investments relative to this chart, plus having some good aspects in and to your own chart, in spite of the Grand Square, this could be a money maker! Good luck!

April 20 2014 Grand Cardinal Square Venus Astrology Chart

Also along this outer planet T Square trail is the sizzling electric Mar 30, 2014 Aries NEW MOON!  It is a double three planet stellium chart – three planets in Pisces, three in Aries!  The New Moon is at the cardinal signs T point of the Jupiter opposite Pluto – see the red triangle?!  The New Moon is conjunct Uranus, the planet of earthquakes and Lightning, a Wildcard!  There will be lively Uranus in Aries challenges in spite of momentary New Moon blahs.  Perhaps the vibrancy will be within.  Friendships will end and begin. You will likely have concern about finances, but be too busy or not have the patience to deal with them. Oddly, they might lie still, barely simmering, maybe the lull before the storm! Hopefully the promise is renewal. Sudden changes may unsettle, but be for the best in the long run.  Be careful with electrics, fires, weapons and planes.  Be cautious of too much trust or way too little, overdoing your exercise, over eating or not eating at all.  It may seem like a dash in a moment, but there could be unexpected long term consequences.  There could be courageous breakthroughs, or entirely missing the boat.  You can see this is a perverse set!  Bottom line is use your intuition in the moment. Don’t start something you can’t finish or will regret later – no tantrums. It is just as honorable to let go, not participate, though your feelings may go crazy wanting to stand up and shout! Be willing to move on.  To thine own Self be true.

May and June Jupiter links
Chiron and Saturn in a GRAND Water TRINE!

Jupiter comes into a 5 degree range May 3, May 14 exactly trines Chiron, the last time of three. May 24 Jupiter has moved forward totrine Saturn, the last time of three. May 20 is the closest configuration of all three at 18 Cancer 17.  June 12 Saturn trines Chiron, the 4th of five times, which carries on continuously within a degree until the final 5th of five aspects, Aug 5, completing the entire set.

This is the culmination of Jupiter’s tines to Chiron and Saturn! It is a marvelous business trine!  Jupiter is generally prosperous, has terrific ideas. Saturn is the guiding light, stabilizes, is the Builder. They are so happy together toward the same goals! Chiron is uncannily aware of pitfalls, and knows how to heal the problems, tends and perseveres, keeps the troops in good shape. At the personal level, it’s a great time to see your healers.

This could be a good marriage time, but there are details, so get practical astrological advice, and be sure things are marvelous to your chart as well. If it’s good, you will have a solid relationship, each contributing.  It may be a romance of seasoned partners, professionals, educators. Travel and different cultures could spice things up. There will be touching understandings, a deepening beyond words. Congratulations if this is your time!

This IS a WATER trine.  It’s steamy if with fire, hot tubs, or puts out fire. Sizzle then fizzle. Earth provides a good old barefooted play in the mud, or reroutes the creek. Water flows downhill, the course of least resistance – follow them! Install a pond on your property and stock it! Or get that soothing fish tank!  Air and water are San Francisco-foggy – lost, passing like ships in the night, or magic and mystic though softened and soggy. Water with water is immersion and baptism, totally merging, no need to speak. Follow the currents….


July 16 Jupiter leaves Cancer, enters LEO!  See Sign Changes

Aug, Sep Jupiter Makes Three Inconjuncts 

  • Aug 14 to Neptune in Pisces – Allow the vision to expand and include ideas of other cultures
  • Aug 24 is when Jupiter is at the exact opposite midpoint between Pluto and Neptune, 8 Leo 44
  • Sep 5 to Pluto in Capricorn – Seek the unmitigated Truth and have fun doing it!  Funding may be right around the corner, literally!
  • Sep 14 is when Jupiter is at the exact opposite midpoint between Pluto and Chiron, 13 Leo 2
  • Sep 23 to Chiron in Pisces – When you thought there was no hope, the miracle becomes available.  But you have to look.

Inconjuncts are oblique aspects, when planets are 150 degrees of each other. They are to the side, just off center. There is extra perception as the environment is scanned, resulting in more accurate choices in context of the greater whole. When the wild ball comes at you, you can duck.  When you are alert to business or equipment advances, you can prepare to benefit from the upgrades, stepping into opportunities gracefully, with less cost.

Equidistant aspects are considered to be potent! Midpoints are not as commonly used in the US as they are in Europe, but they are even more powerful factors when triggered by a third planet! Since we have four planets in this sequence, there are two healthy midpoints, Aug 24, and Sep 14.  As the planets are moving these dates are when each of the three points are perfectly equidistant!

Jupiter and Neptune both like going places.  Jupiter is the traveler, body and mind, seeking right action, a broader perspective through learning.  Neptune travels in Spirit, meditation/mindlessness – another form of mind, seeking connection with the Soul, often crossing oceans to do it!  Jupiter expands, revels robustly! Races, rides horses, skis, skates while Pisces swims, rides the surf, sails!  But Neptune/Pisces sometimes sits until they become invisible even to themselves.  Jupiter can cheer up a laggard Neptune, give them ideas that the Neptune then drops into the subconscious to dream about.  Neptune sees the nuances and makes subtle coarse corrections that save the day!

With Pluto, Jupiter may have to dance quickly; the snake will strike if you tamper with it too much.  Better to tone it down a bit and match pace while prodding the reptile.  Yet Pluto is astute, especially in Capricorn, and sees the value of what’s being offered, even if they don’t use it the way Jupiter thinks they should.  There’s always a reason for our connections.  Pluto can take a wildly optimistic idea of Jupiter’s, distill it to core potential, sort out how to make it happen, profit from the results. We marvel at what they see and do. So if it seems like they are skeptical and didn’t really hear you, wait and see anyway.  Check back.  Think more on it yourself and bring more of your ideas back to the table too!

Jupiter is so well intended and healthy, usually, and Chiron is teacher/healer too, but some of their grace comes from having suffered.  Jupiter’s way is to educate you, get you moving, stretching your muscles to get you to reach for it!  Chiron is more quiet, serious, perhaps.  Daily it tends the sick, observes, works with deeper consciousness, sometimes at Death’s door.  In Pisces it doesn’t leap to conclusions, but flows here and there seeing context, primordial wounding. Sometimes it is important not to stress the patient/client/friend before they are ready. The body can’t heal if we don’t let it. Some things can’t be fixed, or it may take many lifetimes. They understand that and give comfort as can be done. When they can, they will meet you in the dreamtime. If you get bogged down, forget your direction, as healer or client, Jupiter will come by, snorting fire, and blow life right back into you! If Jupiter is the lame horse, take yourself to the healer! Chiron will scold you a tad as they kindly tend you.

Dec 14 brings the last exciting aspect of the year. It is the sixth, NEXT TO LAST, Uranus square Pluto!  Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely FOR 3 MONTHS, at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015!

Dec 23!  Saturn enters SAGITTARIUS!  See Sign Changes

Two Sign Changes, Fire Signs Leo & Sagittarius!

Beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales - Grace and Strength
Budweiser’s beautiful brutes lead with amazing grace and strength!

2014’s sign changes go well with the Chinese Year of the Horse!  Leo loves horse races/polo, and Sagittarius rules large animals, horses!

July 16 Lucky Jupiter leaves Cancer, enters Leo, the sign of GOLD!  Jupiter loves races, stretching its Pegasus wings!  Time to travel in style to all the hot places!  Leo is athletic and Jupiter loves games; both love to win!  Both like to share and teach.  Speeches will be peppered with personal anecdotes, stories will be inspirational!  Start an athletic school, a training center, do coaching!  The meaning of life is important from the rights of the tiniest beings to fanatic believers.  It will be the time for super heroes!  Market graphs may have quite highs and lows!  Climate changes may seem to speed up, especially the melting part.  Drought, fires, water could be serious matters.  We may need water consolation as well as conservation.  Be plenty mindful where you choose to live for an extended time, like where you retire.  Learn to use the land well and how to generate your own climate, food and power as much as possible, or link up with people who can do that.  Permaculture skills will prove to be valuable.  Invest wisely for your future, your children’s future.  Against a serious economic backdrop, we are kicking it up a bit!  Entertainment will be glorious. Overconfidence will make big spending, gambling, tempting.  Know that Jupiter takes about a year through each sign.  Keep your long term investments trim, choose the medium home versus the luxury home or apt., eat less ice cream!  :)  You can always go bigger later if things stay up for you!  Jupiter’s next sign will be Virgo, starting Aug 11, 2015.  Then we will be trimming the fat, possibly have dry times. In the meantime, stay cool (it’s gonna be hot), stay true, have a great time!

Last time Jupiter was in Leo was Aug 2002 to Aug 2003.  Iraq was fought and conquered.  Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrates during reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere, killing all seven astronauts aboard.  In the wake of the Sep 11, 2001 attacks, the Department of Homeland Security, the largest U.S. government reorganization since the creation of the Department of Defense in 1947, was created.  Annika Sörenstam became the first woman to play the PGA Tour in 58 years.  In Mexico, the last ‘old style’ Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the assembly line.  The summer of 2003 was among the warmest in the last three centuries!  It was the first time temps over 100 degrees, highest ever, were recorded in the UK. France, hit hardest, had seven days of 104 degree temps, resulting in 14,802 heat-related deaths (mostly among the elderly); and there was a severe heat wave across Pakistan and India that peaked at 122 degrees!  Leo, Martha Stewart, was indicted.

Dec 23 Saturn enters Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius!  While Jupiter has been partying in Leo since July, Saturn has been finishing Scorpio.  Saturn in financial Scorpio sees what it has to pay for.  Romantic relationships will either fizzle as the party charm wears off and accountability happens, or things will take root with the spending level as it is.  Saturn in Sagittarius now knows what to plan for, all the way out to longevity and Social Security.  It is intent on education backed up by what has happened in the Past, statistics and research that point key directions.  Travel will be only as essential.  It may not be the time to start a travel business or import/export, unless it is for everyday items at the best price.  Rocks, walls, borders, glass, ice, may come to some sort of prominence.  Saturn and Sagittarius are quite acquainted since Sagittarius comes first, then Capricorn, Saturn’s sign in zodiacal order.  Sag loves its freedom, roams the world and places of expansion and learning.  Saturn gets back and does business, as their Father did.  This is the combination of both of those. The responsibility Saturn takes prospers from the perspectives it gained while traveling.  It builds well situated on the land, strong from the foundation to the roof, using perfect slopes and slants for rain or snow, sustainable for hard times.  It always builds a back door, when possible, a well structured-cellar.  Doubter, seasoned life walker, faith healer, all have valuable points of view.  Fearful or friendly, stay as open as possible to opportunities that may take you further than you ever expected.  It could be the Gateway of a lifetime! 

Saturn will retrograde back into Scorpio June 14, 2015 to Sep 17, 2015, be in Sag two plus years, until it enters its own sign Capricorn, Dec 19, 2017.

Saturn was last in Sagittarius 27-29 years ago Nov ’85 to Feb ’88 and June to Nov ’88.  Windows 1.01 was first released on Nov 20, 1985, just three days after Saturn entered Sag.  The first international version 1.02, was released May 1986.

1986:  The first PC virus, Brain, starts to spread.  Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrates 73 seconds after launch, killing the crew of 7 astronauts, including schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe.  Halley’s Comet reaches its perihelion, the closest point to the Sun!  Chernobyl nuclear disaster.  Hands Across America: At least 5,000,000 people form a human chain from New York City to Long Beach, California, to raise money to fight hunger and homelessness.  The Oprah Winfrey Show premieres.
1987:  Harmonic Convergence!  Oct 19 Black Monday: Stock market levels fall sharply on Wall Street and around the world.  Thomas Knoll and John Knoll develop the first version of Photoshop.
1988:  NASA scientist James Hansen testifies to the Senate that man-made global warming had begun.   Al Qaeda is formed by Osama Bin Laden.  The Iran–Iraq War ends, with an estimated one million lives lost.

Horses! We ride; they serve. In times past they did work we couldn’t do ourselves. They have long been a symbol of going places on the winds of the Four Directions, whether of seasonal necessity, or simply wandering the beauty of our planet. Today, they are serving in a new way, as therapeutic beings. The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.), a federally-registered nonprofit, was formed in 1969 for individuals with special needs.

There are Horses, and there are Horses! In these two new signs, take yourself places. Whether you are magnificent in your harness, possibly incredibly well cared for, or are roaming free, make it glorious! Take excellent care of yourself; you are a good animal too. Strut your stuff and get your bookings! See what’s next, what it’s all about! Call on the thunder of a Clydesdale; run like a racehorse, your hair flying! Enjoy the safety of your Circles and set yourself free!

Retrogrades

2014 starts with back-to-back series of retrogrades involving Venus, Mercury and Mars. The series goes through May 19, 2014. Read More!

Mercury  2014 has its standard 3 Mercury Rx, each of them straddling water and air signs, Pisces/Aquarius, Cancer/Gemini, then Scorpio/Libra. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections.  Water signs bring a nurturing quality that keep those ideas and connections alive and thriving!
Venus directs Jan 31, 2014, finishing the Capricorn retrograde it started Winter Solstice, Capricorn day, Dec 21, 2013!
Mars  No 2014 retrograde.



Stelliums – Powerful Gatherings of Planets

The most simple definition of stellium is 3 or more planets in the same sign! Use these for sign specific emphasis, concentrated focus and as areas of expertise. The House/s where they occur in your chart is what you apply your focus to! Many planets in one sign give you many ways, options, to approach a specific area! You might be out of touch with other things, but leave that to people with that kind of emphasis. Simply let others know that’s not your department!

4 Planet Stelliums:

  • Dec 21, Winter Solstice Day, when the Sun entered Capricorn, we started the stellium with four planets, Sun, Mercury Venus and Pluto.  Dec 31, the Moon joins making it five in Cap!  Jan 2 we go back to four until Mercury leaves into Aquarius Jan 11.
  • Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Sun in Libra!
  • Oct 23 Scorpio starts with a stunning New Moon conjunct Venus – Moon, Sun, Venus all at ZERO degrees at 2:58 PM Pacific!  New Moon, New Sign, New degree!  Saturn 22 Scorpio is the fourth planet.
  • Nov 8 Mercury starts a second Scorpio stellium that goes 5 days until Venus leaves into Sagittarius Nov 16!  Mercury, Sun, Venus, Saturn.
  • Nov 20 – 22 we get a third Scorpio stellium formed as the Moon goes through Scorpio!
5 Planet Stelliums:  Dec 21, Winter Solstice, starts the last and only 5 planet stellium of 2014 in Capricorn!  The New Moon leads the way from ZERO Capricorn!  The stellium continues with 4 planets, Sun, Mercury, Pluto, Venus, after the Moon leaves, starting New Year 2015!  Jan 3 Venus enters Aquarius, leaving only three planets.

6/7 Planet Stelliums:  None in 2014.  Then next 6 planet stellium is Jan 16, 2018, at another New Moon!  It starts with 5 planets Jan 10, has 6 Jan 14 to 17, then is back to 4 on the 18th as two planets leave.

January has TWO New Moons, the first is in Capricorn on NEW YEAR’s Day, JAN 1! The second is Jan 30 at 10 Aquarius 55, the day before Chinese New Year’s Day! So both January New Moons fall at a New Year! The 2nd is also the day before Venus turns direct, and Jupiter makes its 2nd opposition Jupiter!

February’s FULL Moon will be on Valentine’s Day!

February’s NEW Moon will be at 11:59 PM Pacific on the 28th.  Other lower US zones will have no February New Moon!  Theirs will be on March 1!  For them, March will have TWO New Moons!

Five New Moons in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, are all at ZERO degrees!  We are truly starting new at each Sign change!  From then on, they are at the last degrees of their signs, finishing each sign with a lunar touchdown before the new signs start.

In Scorpio, Saturn will continue to guard us; Jupiter will continue to flourish in Cancer then Leo.  We will have a Wedge pattern that becomes a Grand Square in April, a Grand Water Trine in May/June, and an inconjunct series in August/September. And we get to see a few good eclipses!  May your 2014 travels take you exactly where you want to go and may every step be wild and magical!  Blessed be!  See 2012 Worldwide New Year images!

If I don’t see you over the holidays, I’ll see you NEXT YEAR!

Yule Queen by marvelous artist  Nadezhda Strelkina, calls her Faery.

I call her the Yule Queen.  Her painter, Nadezhda Strelkina, calls her Faery.

Wishing you all the sweetest Holiday Season!
Love, Health, Happiness….wonder, gratitude.

Dec 14 to Dec 31  Mars, Sun, Mercury Cardinal TSquare
Dec 21 to Jan 2  Holiday Capricorn Stellium
Dec 31 to Jan 8 Cardinal Grand Cross!

Get your shamanic shoes on, machinery in good working order, and all your tools handy!  Build the threshold to your new life! Dance through the 2014 Gateway!

During Sagittarius 2012 Mars was in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, activating the Uranus square Pluto. Sagittarius 2013 Mars was in Virgo and Libra.  In Libra it will first be forming a Cardinal TSquare with the continuing Uranus square Pluto, then as Jupiter meets it retrograde, a GRAND CROSS starts to be formed Dec 31!  Mars, the Number 1 fire planet burns away the dross to bring purity.

Dec 7 Mars, the Aries planet, entered Libra, Aries’s opposite sign, one of Venus’s signs! Opposites, separation, at the same time as integration and synthesis. The practice is have both skills:  to allow letting go, separation, and to cooperate with dignity and respect to each other. Could be a bit fiery as they circle each other, assessing, getting safe, learning the best approaches. The goal is an active Peace. It’s time to learn some new social skills, make some new friends or reawaken the old or abandoned ones! Time for new connections that are exciting and breathe the Spirit back into us! It’s a renewal of what’s pure and fresh!

Just a week later, Dec 14, Mars started activating the Uranus square Pluto. Since 2010 this square has been upon us, changing world financial and political conditions dramatically.  Some are tired, discouraged, afraid; others have thrived, having been in position to prosper during the hard times, or their expertise IS survival! And there are many businesses that do thrive in hard times.  Mars in Libra, a sign of balance, seeks a re-positioning, a new strategy, more courageous connections, leadership.  Change is possible when we pull together, but do still indeed follow our own instincts, making others excited to follow our lead!  It may be a small beginning, just like Apple from a garage, but the Lights are ON!  Mars is the Sword of Fire!

Dec 17 is our Capricorn Full Moon – Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Cancer.  Let the resources from our pasts, our families, our genes and culture, bring remembrance of times primordial that we can call on for Wisdom. Whether elders or ones on the Other Side, even from past lives, we can find ourselves being nurtured to build and succeed as relics that no longer serve crumble to free our space to move forward.  Hold each other’s hands and take the steps to new times. After the culmination of the Full Moon, we get thoughtful and a bit more internal, on our way through to the New Year’s Day Capricorn New Moon.

Holiday Stellium Dates:

  • Dec 21, Winter Solstice Day, the Sun starts the Capricorn Stellium!  At first there are only three planets, the Sun, Venus (retrogrades at almost 29 Capricorn this day), and Pluto.
  • Dec 24, Christmas Eve, Mercury enters Capricorn, making it a four planets stellium.  From here, there is an intense sequence of aspects through Jan 2, 2014.
  • Dec 31 to Jan 2, the Moon is in Capricorn, making it a 2+ days FIVE planet Capricorn stellium!

Capricorn Stelliums Capricorn is a fine upstanding sign, proud of its accomplishments. It can be a most dedicated hard worker, prodigious producer. And it can kick up it’s heels, (ever seen baby goats play?) and frolic! They are sure footed, accurate in their steps, so can take certain chances like an adept! Other times they are fairly cautious, rely on tried and true rules, the weight on smart proven choices. This stellium could serve to keep the other planets more in line – Mars who leaps without looking, Jupiter that doesn’t dream they could fail, Uranus that free falls, Pluto that’s obsessed! Cap looks them in the eye and expects them to tow the mark. That can come as a relief when the others are at their edge, and just a word can reel them in, save them from themselves! Whew! Back to reality! If things get too out of hand, they are self-preservationist. If you see a Capricorn run, you go too, right behind them!

  • Dec 25, Christmas Day, Mars, and Moon, oppose Uranus in Aries.  The Moon makes it a SIX planet TSquare, activates the TSquare all day by opposing Uranus, conjuncting Mars, squaring Pluto.  See the chart below.
  • Dec 29 Mercury and Sun square Uranus  Wild or conservative?!  Who, me?
  • Dec 30 Mars squares Pluto, and moves into 5 degree range of square to Jupiter making a Cardinal GRAND CROSS! A considered, measured presentation, protection, or caution be damned!
  • Dec 31 Mercury conjuncts Pluto and squares Mars.  A dangerous risk, possible consequences, or you pounce on an opportunity of the moment with no regrets!    
  • Jan 1, 2014  Sun conjuncts Pluto  Once a year, the gate is open to the deepest dark, most powerful, the Phoenix!  Hang on for the ride, Kundalini awakening!
  • Jan 2, 2014  Sun squares Mars  Oops, the Devil made me do it!  Could be embarrassing, yet secretly the most fun in years!
  • Jan 5, Sun opposes Jupiter  Too, too much, and not enough!  What did you say?!
  • Jan 8 Mars squares Jupiter  Truth or dare!  Dancing in the streets, let’s run away!  NO fights.

Mars, and Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries, throw in the heat!  Mars is usually straight forward, but Uranus throws in the tricks, the unexpected! This can be the surprise party, or the accident in your driveway!  Some may refrain from flights since Uranus rules planes and squares are often challenges.  Pluto is the price, and it may not be to your liking, or there may be an amazing reduction!

Mars and Uranus are independents. Mars prefers to do whatever whenever. Uranus just likes freedom. But, Uranus also rules friendships, and Pluto likes the deepest, most intimate relationships, in Capricorn, especially those of long standing. Mars in Libra wants to see how things are these days. Is it too binding, or has the old bond fizzled? Or is it taking on a new life? Uranus loves change and old fashioned chaos, very entertaining for someone who gets bored easily, so it may say some off the wall thing just to get things going!  Oh, my. Hang onto our socks!  And this over the holidays! Try to keep the troublemakers far, far apart – definitely not at the same party! See them separately if you suspect any morsel of possible disagreements or misbehavior, unless, Ha!, you are the protagonist and you decide it all needs to happen!

Pluto in Capricorn knows the rules and may be called in to ref. It’s not scared of those rowdies, and everyone knows not to upset Pluto. They are the ninjas. If you shame or embarrass them by your unspeakable behavior, you may lose them as a friend.  No amount of amends will recover your connection with them. They just don’t trust you anymore.  Ok.  So you get it. If you think YOU are the person who might misbehave, wait for another time, or have your walking shoes in your mind and be ready to leave, let things go. This is one of those holidays to not talk about religion, politics, or engage in malicious gossip. Without a moment’s hesitation, walk away.

Squares by nature break things up, break down resistances, break through, ultimately build solidly. It’s just the getting there that keeps you up all night, and on your toes!

The astrological chart below is for Christmas Day at 2:40 PM Pacific when the Moon opposes Uranus, is closely conjunct Mars.  This could be a powder keg, be careful with the pepper!  You might want to break tradition and have an early evening gathering rather than morning or midday.  In the chart below, I’ve removed other aspects so you can easily see the SIX planets TSquare.

New Year’s Eve, Dec 31 to Jan 8 Cardinal Grand Cross! Dec 31 Mars comes into range of squaring Jupiter as well as its square to Pluto and opposition with Uranus!  Taking on these 3 outer planets may be akin to David and Goliath, but have no doubt, Mars will warrior his way against the odds!  Mars is confident, doesn’t even think of the odds.  He just responds, goes straight ahead, has a hot quick temper when riled!  Jupiter is sure he can do it, and a little tussle could be just a friendly fight, at first.  Jupiter, though usually friendly, if confronted and falsely accused, or if it is the principle of the matter, can be mighty fast on his feet with a heck of a lot of forward momentum and a kick like a mule!  Be careful about what you do and say this New Year’s night.  Party with a partner, carefully with people you trust, in a safe setting, with a dependable vehicle – or call a cab for sure.  Have the courage to be independent in a good way.  If someone needs you, be their first responder, bring water for the flames, have mercy.  Make sure everyone gets home ok.  We love you and want your dear company in 2014!  Blessed be!

Happy Holidays!  Make sensible holiday choices – be safe, eat well, get plenty of rest, stand tall, laugh and Love it uP!

As always, remember, if the planet degrees, in this case 4 to 12 degrees, don’t activate your chart, these holiday challenges may have little effect on you.

Leo Full Blue Moon August 20, 2013!

Aug 20, the Full Moon is the 2nd in Leo, and, will REALLY be a BLUE MOON by the old definitions! That is, it will be the third full moon in the summer season which has four full moons in 2013!

Since the first Leo Full Moon was at Zero degrees the opening day of Leo, this one is at the end of Leo, the final curtain, at 28 degrees!  It will be at 6:45 PM Pacific.  Time to finish up your Leo affairs – Stand tall, Live deep, Love well!  There are no other planets in close degrees making major aspects with the Full Moon, there is no interference, no assistance; it has clear passage.  Leo knows we are never alone though, because its opposite sign is Aquarius, the sign of friendships, co-ops, associations, world organizations.  Leo knows we are only as strong as the weakest link, so strives to be the best they can be, and to teach others along the way.  We know it takes a village and we all must do our part.  We cross the connection bridge every day.  It is good to give praise, court the good people we know, share when we can.  Gestures of intention mean a lot, make a tremendous difference.  We give that we may give more.

What’s hot in this chart is it is virtually Jupiter square Uranus day!  The Blue Moon square is only 3 minutes of space apart!  The exact square occurs at 0:14 AM on the 21st Pacific at 12 degrees.  This is the first square of 3.  It is part of the outer planet Cardinal TSquare we have been having since July 17!  Jupiter opposed Pluto on Aug 7; this square, coupled with the Full Blue Moon, ends the active phase of the T to culmination.  From here, having created the pieces, we put puzzle pieces in place, allow time to rest, observe, settle.  There will be 2 more sets January 2014 through the April 2014 Grand Cross.  What we do now is setting the foundation.

Jupiter in Cancer  Learning and connections are crucial.  Jupiter is concerned with perspective and meaning, the direction things are going and how far you are willing to go.  It takes Faith to cross, Hope to go beyond your expectations, Charity to pay the way.  Put it out on the table, publish, tour, promote, teach, coach.  Even if you aren’t perfect, are inexperienced, do it wrong, at least you are going, and can be alive and vibrant with learning.  Course corrections are honorable.

Uranus in Aries There are times we are so all existentially alone we can hardly speak, or think.  Times we go so fast we don’t think at all!  Other times we are overwhelmed, even with small things.  And there are times we are on top of our game, with both free time and being able to call on our connections with snap, crackle and pop!  Devilishly unpredictable, in perfect synchronicity, happy to shock the socks off everyone!  People come alive in our presence, catching our ideas as fast as we can think of them, and we are shape shifting this planet every which way!  Global warming is the MOST intriguing challenge to the creative mind!

Jupiter, though an Explorer, has a conservative streak, especially in Cancer, and hasn’t left the church for the ashram, so it may not be quite ready for the wild Uranian winds!  But both are like minded in their needs for traveling the outer realms, and to bring people up to speed.  So catch your breaths, share your excitement, seek solutions together.

A juicy little additional factor is Venus, in one of its own signs, Libra, is continuing the TSquare that Jupiter finished the 21st, making a Grand Square, that culminates the 27th!  See the red lines, Grand Square/Cross, in the chart?  Read about it!

Venus Libra Divine Feminine Grand Square Cross Aug 2013

Aug 21, the last day of Leo, Jupiter in Cancer finished and started!  It made the last aspect of the TSquare it has been traveling through since July 17, with its square to Uranus in Aries.  And it made the last aspect of the Grand Water Trine, to Chiron in Pisces.  Yet both of these aspects are the firsts of three.  Jupiter will square Uranus two more times, Feb and April 2014.  Jupiter will trine Chiron Feb 2014 at almost 12 degrees and, last time, in May 2014 at 17 degrees.

Aug 25 we do and don’t have another Star of David, Grand Sextile, Hexagon! 
Yes, all the Water and Earth signs have planets in them.  But the degree connections between them don’t meet my specs.  If you use a 5 degree range, to show the Star lines drawn in, the Moon, has to be at 6+ degrees Taurus to sextile Jupiter, which has now moved ahead to 12 degrees.  This is important because this is the only way the Moon fills the 6th point to make the Star at all!  In the Star of July 29, the Moon immediately connected to every planet in the Star, all the aspects activated and applying (upcoming)!  In this one, several aspects have passed by the time Mama Moon connects with Jupiter.  The Moon shall have already made her trine to Sun and Mercury in Virgo, and the sextile to Neptune in Pisces.  Which really doesn’t matter because Jupiter is at 11/12 degrees while the Sun and Mercury are at 2 and 3 degrees, just too far away from each other to make that 6th sextile, point of the Star.  That is more range than I use for active aspects.  So, by my standards, no, we don’t have a 2nd Star of David.

What we do have is Venus, in one of its own signs, Libra, continuing the TSquare that Jupiter finished the 21st, making a Cardinal Grand Cross/Square, that starts Aug 20, culminates the 27th!

Venus adds desire!  In Libra, it quickly, on balance, evaluates the worth of the results of the TSquare, instigates new action (cardinal signs) on point, carries the energy forward a few more days, makes sure important liaisons to get the job done are made.  If the TSquare released raw results, Venus insists on more elegance, mercy.  Just because things didn’t go our way, it doesn’t mean what happened won’t pay off in time.  You weren’t wrong, just breaking through, maybe a bit of a rough ride.  This period would not be a traditional wedding choice.  But do shake the tree!  Nothing like a little chaos to make Magic!

  • Using a 5 degree range, it started Aug 20th, coming into range to square Pluto in Capricorn, exact Aug 24 at 2:59 AM Pacific.  Since it is mid of night, the strongest effect is essentially on the 23rd.  Consider who you do it with, how much you earn, whether it pleases you.  Take it easy on sugars.  Face it about the need to heal – bodily, emotionally, mentally.  Take time to socialize with people you trust and who are succeeding in a good way.  Share secrets and revelations sometime after the 27th.  Now could be too much too soon.  Obliterated or insightful.  Things need to be not just functional, but pretty too.  Wait on beauty treatments; you may never be quite pleased with that choice.  Financial differences of opinion likely.
  • FYI Aug 25 there are 4 factors at 11 Degrees – Venus, Lilith, Chiron, and Uranus!  Lilith, just with Jupiter, is retrograde square Uranus!  Outrageous Lilith with unpredictable Uranus!  More about women and the rights of the People.  Shadows.  Dark in the Light; Light in the Dark.
  • Aug 26 Venus opposes Uranus in Aries.  Unique but acceptable.  Attractively wild and free.  Sporadic gains, but generally upward.  Beauty and the Beastie!  Shockingly rude or grace beyond belief!  Separated from your friends, possible breakups.  Wait to talk until times are more stable a few days after the 27th.  Build a bridge to the group you would like to serve with.  Give a smile to a stranger, even if you don’t get your way.  Odd.  Don’t take the plane?  Distractions – pay attention where you are going.  A one woman adventure or millions at one.
  • Aug 27, Venus finishes the Grand Cross with its square to Jupiter in Cancer.  A lot to lose, a lot to gain.  It was just too much.  The cost, too much to do, too big a ceremony.  You didn’t want to go there, but were intrigued.  It wasn’t fun, but you learned.  You had to surrender your plans, another direction, another meaning.  Wait to re/decorate, buy materials.  Diversified or one pointed.  Ethical differences.  Faithless or faithful.
  • On the 27th Mars leaves Cancer, enters Leo!  Out of the house, no more cheffing, off to exercise, the games, the party!  Everything has been reassessed, now it’s time to take action, and do it your way!

Venus in Libra searches for peace, beauty in every breath every moment of every relationship.  It seeks pure values.  Be true.

This Grand Cross is part of the Leo Full Blue Moon!

2013 Leo Super Full Moon and New Moon!

Moonday July 22, ZERO Degree Leo/Aquarius SUPER FULL MOON at 11:15 AM Pacific 

A lot happens before this Super Moon that is the backdrop for it and part of its Newness! 

  • Rare Jupiter Grand Trine with Saturn and Neptune July 17 to 19!  The major results from this trine will give fullness and confidence, a foundation for further esteemed ventures!
  • Mars is keeping the rare trine going through July 20 and 22.  It trines Neptune, then Saturn the 20th, conjuncts Jupiter the 22nd.  Magic is afoot!
  • Mercury Retrograde Directs on the 20th – we are beginning to open forward again.  Stay thoughtful, pay attention, dance to the music!

Now, here, the day of our Full Moon, there is the every 26 to 27 months Mars conjunct Jupiter, and THREE Sign changes!

Mars is still fresh from its near midnight conjunction, merger, with Jupiter!  Jupiter is known for growth and expansion!  Add Mars, not shy at all, and there is an enormous energy boost!  In water sign Cancer, they may enjoy splashy summer water sports the most!  Mars is quite willing to take up Jupiter’s stand for proper ethics, especially for women, children, our homes.  This time is ripe for starting new projects, travels with first timers, new friends, to new places!  There is much to be gained from investing in coaching, trying out different teaching and training styles.  Promote your business or event!  Offer your leadership in your specialty!  At the very personal level, know there will be some hot opinions, religious and political passion and fury, and if you are lucky, hot sex!

5:41 am, Venus enters Virgo!  Venus in Virgo until Aug 16, makes beauty in all the right places!  Every detail enhances the next!  It’s worth the money.  Now that Mercury is direct, pick out your colors, styles, placements.  Relandscape with water-saver plants, catch up on your bookkeeping, decide on your healthcare, select your new pet, negotiate with your tenant/landlord, co-worker!  Go on your diet, buy your work and back to school clothes.  Sign up for specialty training with an expert whose good works you see.  Start your new job!

8:56 AM the Sun enters Leo!  It’s time to be the Star!  :)
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _  _  _ _ _ _ _ _
Finally, on the very day of the Sun entering Leo, only 8 minutes of a degree after the Moon enters Aquarius, the stage has been fully set, at 11:15 AM Pacific, we get our FULL MOON!!

Since it is at primal ZERO degrees, it represents new beginnings as well as the completion or peak of cycle that a Full Moon represents.  Venus, also at Zero degrees on the same day blesses the new contributions!  Leo wants it to come from the heart, and Venus has been in Leo before Virgo, so we are well primed!  The Moon at zero Aquarius is a little wild and out of its ken, but ever the observer, soaks up odd out ideas, just like gravy with a warm piece of fragrant bread!  She recognizes when people are a bit out of bounds and need a little extra TLC.  And to Moon, who loves family, Aquarius is just another great big family, the family of man!  Leo, happy to be there, cheers and wagers on its champion!

Two strong aspects with billy goat Saturn!  Both are adding their ‘she’ instincts.  Venus sweetens the day, wiggles close on the merit of the proven virtues of her offer.  Saturn in Scorpio is hell-bent on saving the day, no frivolous wasted time or effort, coming out on top.  There can be a tad of desperation, but the achievement is solid.  The obsession can pay off, surprisingly attractive results after all.  Moon, ruler of Saturn’s opposite sign Cancer, has a challenge on her hands.  She is both soft, compared to do-it-by-the-book Saturn, and devilishly unpredictable in Aquarius!  She moves fast, and Saturn hangs on tighter, being one who proves value through time.  She is whimsical, cycling about in a tizzy at times, or so it seems to Saturn.  It is her accurate intuition that gives her credibility after all.  Nothing beats it.  It’s free, and saves time.  Saturn approved!  Since Moon is in league with Venus, both at zero degrees, Moon can be guided by how earth Virgo Venus couches her practical ideas.  Saturn, an earth planet, values this sensible proposal.

Venus makes two more strong aspects!  She is coming along after the Jupiter trine Neptune, herself opposite Neptune.  The promise of the dream coming true is set, but for just now, it may seem out of reach until after the exact opposition July 26, and after the Mars opposite Pluto, and Sun square Saturn are complete July 27.  Then it may be clear sailing with Venus sextiling Jupiter July 28, trining Pluto July 30!  These two combinations can be loving, lucky and wealthy!   Don’t stop.  Work this sequence to its success!

This is 2013’s third and last Super Full Moon, in Aquarius – Sign of awakening, change!  The Lights are ON!  Full Moons bring culmination and release, like taking a huge lungful, holding it, then the big sigh and relaxation.  You’ve done your best, maxed out, the infusion complete.  What will be, will be.

Leo Full Moon 2013 Astrology Chart

 


Tuesday NEW MOON, Aug 6, 14 Leo at 2:51 PM Pacific 

Our Leo New Moon is the day before Jupiter is opposite Pluto!  Jupiter opposite Pluto is the first exact part of the outer planet Cardinal TSquare, the second part being Jupiter’s square to Uranus Aug 21!  Since the outer planets move slowly, the challenging T is in effect the whole time, in fact, it started July 17!  New Moon’s take us down deep, to the bottom of the cycle when the lights are out, the sky is darkest.  So this one in Leo, the sign of the SUN, Light personified, is a bit different.  There is Light in the form of a bright Presence.  Spirit walks.  Love abides.  The Stars are the Lights of many Suns, and they are brightest to us when it’s darkest!  They have always guided the mariners, and hope IS eternal.  This deep place of the Soul is in perfect harmony with Jupiter the Wayshower offering a way out from Pluto’s darkest Places.  And many times, the Dark is our best friend.  We are safe, quiet, comforted.  We hear things we didn’t pay attention to before.  We settle and divine what’s clear to do next.  Once revealed, Leo stands strong to carry it, Jupiter takes it on the road!

The outer planet Grand Water Trine is waning, but not entirely finished – Jupiter is still trine Chiron and the North Node.  4 Planets and the Nodes are interacting – Saturn and North Node in Scorpio, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, Jupiter in Cancer.  And they are interacting with the other planets in close degrees!  This is a fiery New Moon, but the chart has a lot of Water!  Both are highly intuitive in their own ways!  Fire is a first and fast responder, quick on its feet!  Leo is totally engaged when teaching and performing, gauging audience response, making course corrections instantly.  It senses the essence of relationships – romance or long-lasting, the quality of a liaison.  Water signs sense your feelings – Cancer knows past and familial ties, Scorpio knows how mates and money matters need healing, Pisces knows the nature of sorrows and the dreams to come.

This New Moon is forging on into new territory.  It is leaving the square with the nodes, the inconjunct to Chiron, and trine with Uranus, those all being at 12 degrees.  The nodes span Taurus, what we owned before, and Scorpio, what we could share with others, our mates.  Letting go of our own, to share, isn’t always easy.  Saturn is with the North Node setting the limits, maybe making the prenups.  Leo is often sooo generous, the Moon in Leo would give everything to nurture the love, so a balance is struck between Leo and Saturn – not too much, not stingy either.  There is a decision whether to be Leo lovers or Scorpio mates.  It’s tempting to step outside your relationship, but at what price?  The Jupiter trine the Node, hopes for honesty, forthright business, plans for happiness.  The Leo Moon/Sun just leaving Uranus in Aries, has had a taste of freedom, and it tastes good.  Aries is impetuous, but also rules purity, besides red, white is one of its colors.  Be clean.  Take care of one situation before leaping to another.  New is not the only criteria.  The inconjunct with Chiron calls for healing, then moving on in a good way.  Blessed be.

Jupiter Uranus Pluto T Square

July 17 to Aug 21  Jupiter in Cancer forms 2013’s second outer planet major aspect of 2013, the T Square with the Uranus square Pluto!  It forms the exact opposition with Pluto Aug 7, then the exact square with Uranus Aug 21!  Since these are slow moving planets, the T is continuous.

The rare outer planet Grand Trine during Cancer has led us right into the outer planet T Square of the Year! This is an uncertain time, but full of magic, and oh, so beautiful!  Jupiter in Cancer brings the Mother Light of Heaven, along with the Plutonian nameless shadows, a deepening of Being.  Uranus makes it intriguing to feel life on your skin!

Jupiter ups the amps.  It makes things big enough to see, wants the Truth, and is silly optimistic enough to think it can deal with it!  :)  Unless you are experienced in the field, overspending will likely not pay off no matter how good it looks. Plan ahead for possible big expenses.  Check references, tell the truth. Travel may be too costly but necessary, and the destination not worth the effort unless you need a break!  Maybe you need to cut loose, takes $ to make $!  Sure enough, you made that mess (or were likely a part of making it), you likely can fix it since you ‘know’ it.  Not to fear!  Get on your 7 league boots, mop up, jump high, see long, and get going!  Feelings (Cancer) are a lot like intuition, though sometimes hail from your Past.  Understand what you can; replace old tired worn tracks with new memories!  Bless yourself and live sweet.

Uranus, at the T point, is friends, the ones you do or don’t have any longer, hooray, and they can help or hinder.  Good chance more people will know what’s going on with you than you wish, yet some wild card terrific ideas can come from them, even your sworn ‘enemies!’  Uranus is the awakener, change maker.  Let it rip!  If you join an organization, let it be one that takes you on the tide, free, and healing.  Uranus (free) is in Aries (independent) now, so there is more inclination to be your own friend rather than rely on others, yet when you admire another person’s new perspective (Jupiter), it sets you free, and if you meet a person who makes primordial transformation a way of life, you see freedom sprung from its shackles!  Uranus loves the frisson of that electric moment!

Pluto in Capricorn is often the obsessions we don’t even admit to ourselves.  Clues –  The devil made me do it!  I don’t know why I did that.  I knew I shouldn’t do that.  I couldn’t help myself.  Get the drift?  Take a good look at those areas.  We all have Scorpio, Pluto, an 8th house – compulsion ingredients.  They can be big, bad, innocuous.  Or maybe they add up over time.  Maybe you need a new attitude, have a broader outlook like Jupiter can have.  Perhaps your body needs some different more effective care.  See the specialist, the intense passionate one that can inspire you past your imprisoning opinions.  Let Jupiter educate you.  What have you got to lose?!  If you are going to spend your money, make it count toward a better future. with an expert who knows the way and has a solid track record.  Continue with your research but don’t expect an end-all answer. Things are progressing even if you don’t see it yet. Do corrections, updates, clean up and follow ups after this aspect is over. It may clear the path in fortunate ways you never expected.

Cardinal!  This has more meaning in context of its fellows, Fixed and Mutable!  Fixed is still and standing.  Mutable is adaptable and in change mode.  Cardinal signs get things started!  Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn!  They are action signs when they are happy.  Aries kicks off the whole zodiac!  Cancer makes a nest and has babies – new starts!  Libra easily makes new relationships and alliances.  Capricorn does business, the boss of everything!  :)  This T doesn’t have Libra, but the others hold the 3 of 4 points, with focus on Uranus in Aries at the T point.  The Awakener is on Fire!

Natural Factors!  As stated below with the Grand Cross, there have been, and will be more weather or other extremes, quakes, floods, fire, winds, freezes.  Choose where you live sensibly, factor in for global warming.  Be prepared; do due diligence with your maintenance.

July 20 to July 31 Mars Adds Its Zest to the TSquare 

Mars, in Cancer with Jupiter, is the ‘Do it!’ planet!  It is action, leadership, the first ONE!  Jupiter philosophizing gives you good reason, but may not quite tip the scales to plunge on in, but Mars will get you through the gate!  Put on your red shoes and that cape you always wanted to wear, and super through!  Mars is up for a good clean fight if that’s what it takes.  Bravery counts.  Pluto can be sneaky, but Mars is skinny quick!  Done in a flash!  Ha!  See?  We didn’t die!  Uranus may want to consult with friends, or adds lightning to the laser!  They may not stay friends with Mars types, each is so independent, but they have mutual admiration, a combination of intelligence so fast you didn’t see it!  Downright marvelously dangerous together!

Not a planet of allegiance, yet will champion a cause, Mars is with Jupiter in this TSquare.  Jupiter is a promoter, and Mars likes that forward motion.  If Mars gets with the right program, training, purpose, teacher, it will be a lucky venture!  Jupiter naturally exudes and inspires confidence, does what’s fun or does it in a way that’s fun, reaches further than the immediate space.  Jupiter can give a focus for the long term.  Mars will be so excited to do more than ever before!  The point is to choose your allies and direction well!  Take a chance!  Even if it isn’t perfect, you get in the swing of it, be better next time!

A word of caution!  Mars and Jupiter both often think they are invincible and love to stretch their wings!  Overdoing it sometimes just doesn’t pay.  Dares, provoking the big guy, running the light, not paying attention, getting too pissed (forgive me) – either with spirits or anger, are times to back off.  That often takes more personal strength, especially when you are in a situation you aren’t used to, with people who don’t know and support you.  Take extra good care of yourselves, please.

Down the Road  Dec 14 to 31  Mars in Libra will make its final TSquare of 2013 with the Uranus square Pluto, finishing the year Dec 31 with Mars striking a potent 6 planets Grand Cross!  More later on….

Second & Third Outer Planet, Jupiter Cardinal Ts for 3 Months

SECOND Jan 17 to Feb 25, 2014  The second set is in reverse order, while Jupiter is Retrograde.  Jupiter first opposes Pluto Jan 31 at 12 degrees, then squares Uranus Feb 25, 2014 at 10 degrees.  Though a month apart by date, they are less than 3 degrees apart the whole time.  If you allow a 5 degree effectiveness range, Jupiter is strongly with both Uranus and Pluto starting Jan 17.

THIRD  Continuous until April 21, 2014  Because Jupiter is slowing to turn direct (forward) Mar 5, it stays in close range, less than 4 degrees, in this TSquare continuously until it forms the third set!  It culminates in an intense two day affair, a very tight less than one degree formation!  It squares Uranus and opposes Pluto on the same day, April 20, 2014, followed by the 5th of the 7 Uranus Pluto squares April 21!  This is the completion, the maximization, of Jupiter’s engagement with, contribution to, the Uranus Pluto square.  The Uranus Pluto square occurs two more times, 6th on Dec 14, 2014, 7th and last, Mar 16, 2015.

GRAND CROSS – April 9 to April 23, 2014  In addition to these 3 outer planets being in T, this 3rd time, Mars Retrograde in Libra is in the picture filling the 4th sign position, Libra, making the outer planet TSquare a Grand Square, Grand Cross!  Allowing 5 degrees of range, Mars potently enters the frame April 9, 2014.  It squares Jupiter April 22, opposes Uranus and squares Pluto Apr 23!  Major geophysical events often occur the two days after strong aspect formations like these, so the 24th and 25th.  Mars can spark fires.  Uranus rules air flight, electricity and lightning, wind and earthquakes.  Pluto in Capricorn can bring snow and ice extremes.  Jupiter in Cancer can tsunami your life, flood your street!  Precautions are warranted.  Be up-to-date on maintenances.  Err to the more sensible side.  The reality of global warming may show itself to you and alter your long term plans.  Pick homes with a water supply but without flood potential.  Since Mars is slow in Retrograde, it holds a close position in square with Pluto, turns direct May 19, making the final exact square with Pluto June14, 2014.  This is like peat moss burning.

Mars in Libra is like an opposition all its own since Mars is associated with Aries, the sign opposite Libra.  Mars helps Libra stand up.  Libra helps Mars get some suave!  Mars can be rowdy and growl; Libra is ever so polite at the opera.  Mars whistles as they ride their bike; Libra intricately plays in the symphony with its fellows.  In the rest of the Grand Cross, Mars and Uranus may agree to disagree, yet intrigue each other.  Mars is upfront, Pluto says none of your business, but I would love it if you get this job done quick for me!  Mars and Jupiter are willing to go just about anywhere, taking their chances – Mars daring and brave, Jupiter, usually lucky, just has to see new places.  Mars is spontaneous; Jupiter likes a plan and a purpose, but it doesn’t take much to get them going!

What you do now has effect two more times, and, because they are all connected, through June 2014!  What you do now, how you do it, is the way it all starts.  Stay clear and clean as you can.  There be fallout if it goes awry.  There will be payoff in a good way if you break through and rebuild.  Keep notes during this first set.  Refer back to them before the next set start.  The second and third sets will give opportunity to make course corrections, enhance what you started, grow it bigger and better.  You can secure it, have, at your finger tips, the use of the life tools you have learned.

The last time we had what’s called an ‘in sign’ TSquare with outer planets, was 1993, if you use Chiron.  It was quite different, in fixed signs – Saturn in Aquarius opposed Chiron in Leo, squared Pluto in its own sign Scorpio.  This was happening as Bill Clinton took office – romance, secrets, shame.  The next outer planet T (within a 5 degree range, all coming to exact, not separating) is July 2026, Jupiter in Leo square Chiron in Taurus, opposite Pluto in Aquarius!  Whatever it be, it will be dramatic, hot, maybe earth shaking!

Within this T, is the July 29 GRAND SEXTILE, STAR OF DAVID!  Read about it!

Stand tall, live deep, love well!

Venus Transit/Eclipse Chart – 15 Gemini, June 5, 2012!

North American observers can see it the afternoon of June 5, 2012

I’m writing to you well in advance about this event because I think it is important and it precedes the 2012 Mayan calendar event by only a few months.  I am wanting you to hold it in your consciousness, every day be readying yourself for it, put it in your practice.  Be thinking how you can get others ready.  If I could, I would have you see it as sort of like a Soul bath.  You would lay in your lawn chair, facing the Sun, and vision yourself soaking up everything there is to receive, being bathed in loving Light.  You don’t even have to know what that is.  I believe it will come.  Clean your receptors, open your heart.  Those of you who know astrology, study how it will be placed in your chart.  I’m starting to talk about it with every client.

Venus Transits come in pairs spaced eight years apart, but the time between pairs is 122 years, then 105 years. Due to this pattern, only six Venus transits have been seen since the invention of the telescope.  The 2004 Venus Transit was the first of our latest pair. Before that, the most recent transit had been in 1882—which means no living people on Earth had seen a Venus transit when the 2004 event occurred.  Some speculate this rare Transit was one of the reasons the Mayans chose 2012 as their 26,000 year cycle end/start date.

The Venus eclipses have been in the first 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius since 60 AD!  The previous June 8, 2004 Venus Transit was at 17 Gemini, square Jupiter, widely square Moon/Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto (a loose Mutable Grand Cross involving 7 planets).  Mutable signs call for diversity, adaptability.  The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is mind and meaning, communications near and far, from here to the University.  The Virgo/Pisces axis is service and devotion, working hard and dreamtime magic, healers of body and Soul.

This Venus retrograde conjuncts/eclipses the Sun at 15 degrees airy space-in-the-mind Gemini, both of them square Mars at 16 degrees  get-the-job-done Virgo.  Venus in Gemini is loving communications, appreciations, expressing affection, valuing diversity of thinking.  Square Mars in Virgo calls for that desire being thought about to be put into action, to break through from pleasure to leadership on a daily basis.  Virgo tends the fort, wants all to be healthy, not too much sugar!   Jupiter is at 28 degrees, finishing Taurus about to enter Gemini, just one degree from the Pleiades.  Mercury is at 27 Gemini, in a one degree semi sextile with this Jupiter.  There will be a lot to say, some of it profound, about the goings on, because this 27 Gemini position is powerfully positioned exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER, downloading the information to the people!  This is important because the Mayan Calendar turnover at the Sacred Tree, Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012, occurs only 6 degrees from the Galactic Center!  The Moon is conjunct Pluto, sextile Chiron, square Uranus.  This Moon position highlights Pluto; Pluto at this degree becomes part of the Jupiter three planet 8 degree YOD in the Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar turnover!  All will not go as planned, surprises in the offing, some left behind, inevitable deep-rooted change due to fathers, sadly, something to ‘weep’ about, a longed for professional matter at stake.  Some things, though much talked about, must be done alone, yet profoundly affect our mates, or we are affected by them….

Venus Transit chart, June 5, 2012, 5:09 PM Pacific, Santa Barbara CA

Due to the huge size difference, no way can Venus ‘eclipse’ the Sun – we call it a Venus Transit.  In images it is a mere black dot in a sea of yellow fire as it crosses the face of the Sun!  I think of it as a voyage, pilgrimage, a rite of passage, across this magnificent space being.  It is a merger, an immersion, being imbued, saturated, infused, with the brightest Light our Solar System, our neighborhood in the galaxy, has to offer!  And it is lined right up with US!  Whew!  This is the Kleig Light of Heaven, from our Heart of Light, transmitted, telegraphed, filtered, amped, a direct shot!  Do you think flowers in bloom at that time will have more powerful pollen, seeds, essences?!  Not one pore of Venus will be left untouched.  If your love went cold, those with planets touched by this aspect, will be warmed right back up, solar charged!  You may feel you have plenty to give, more than ever!  Venus matters ‘enlightened’ will involve beauty, the arts, money, attractiveness, our values, love, kindness, graciousness, giving.  Perhaps you will be ‘weeping’ for JOY!

In Gemini, the Word, all those matters will be spoken of, listened for, written up!  Start your blog!  Multifaceted ideas will spring forth, diversity rules!  Marketing and advertising will be blessed with connecting people who love what is being sold.  Contracts will be better for all involved.  How we learn, pay attention, will improve, education be more cherished.  Learning a second language will be more valuable not only to improve memory, but to make special connections with people that used to be out of reach.  Touch healing, massage will flourish.  Sports like tennis, running, may make new records!  Very true, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.  Words of praise and appreciation make all the difference.  Love formula – 5 praise to 1 criticism.  What we think – what we focus our attention on, how we think – half full/half empty, matters.  Profoundly.

Venus rules first Taurus, Earth, then Libra, Air.  Taurus has a sensual beauty, rules celebrities and common sense, the monies at hand, the sitting Buddha, Earth, our self esteem.  Libra rules classic beauty, the fine arts, etiquette, Kwan Yin, balance, our adult peer relationships, marriage, how we see our value among our peers, legal proceedings.  We all have both signs in our charts.  Find out where they are in your chart, then read the Venus Transit into those houses, and which house the exact Transit is in, to see what and where you personally are activated.

Those of you with birthdates from the 2nd to the 8th of the month, and/or have planets from 12 to 19 degrees of any sign, will be the most affected by the Venus Transit.  Most air and fire signs will be comfortable with it, may flourish.  Other mutable signs, Virgo and Pisces at square, Sagittarius opposite, may be put off by all the ‘meaningless’ chit chat, may not even hear of it, or be surprised by, perhaps at first annoyed by, new ideas that seemed hidden!  Earth signs want to keep their routine, but there will surely be disruptions.  Water signs, though intrigued, may duck under to see what is happening below the surface and to rest their ears.

A client asked me …will all these changes be for the good?  In some ways the World is already better as people seek new solutions (energy production, government).  Any change proves there CAN be change.  With a lot of old world regimes toppling, there will be chaos and clumsy reform that may take years to settle.  That’s normal.  Change of such magnitude takes time.  Flooding with education and information (Gemini) are imperative.  Giving alternate solutions gives choice (Gemini).  Some of those people have been ‘asleep’ for a long time.  Breaking with tradition and psychological habit is scary.  So change itself, though a relief for some, is part of what can stall the very things it is looking toward.  Encouragement and less poverty, the ability to provide for themselves, create a security base that allow the luxury of a more positive choice.  One of the maxims of natural cycles is it is always darkest before the Light.  Now is the time to stay steady – get us through and beyond the chrysalis of this stage.  Though a chrysalis is a hardened shell, to protect the pupa of the butterfly, it is often seen twitching with life when touched….

This Venus Transit comes before the Dec 21, Winter Solstice, 2012 Mayan calendar end/turnover, giving us LOVE first to cap the final achievements.  We finish the final days before the Calendar ends with more GRACE.  This sets the foundation for a sweeter start of the next cycle, the BLESSINGS to come in the new times!

Let love light the dark way, return to the Light, see the Light.  Merge with, emerge from, the Heart of Light, it’s a free ride!  Reverence to all Beings.  Namaste.  Or as the Mayans say, “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself [Gemini, the Twins]. 

Gemini, Sign of the Hands, the Honored Sign of Transference of the Venus Transit June 5, 2012
