Scoropio 2017 – 2018 Celestial HighLights

Scorpios Clear the Path!

 x

Happy Birthdays, Scorpios!

Scorpio Jodie Foster

Nov 19, 1962 Alicia Christian “Jodie” Foster is an American actress and filmmaker who has worked in films and on television. She has often been cited as one of the best actresses of her generation. See her chart!

She says: I make dark dramas, movies about people living in desperate fear who then overcome that fear and find a heroic side to themselves. With FOUR planets, Neptune, Venus, Mercury and Sun, in Scorpio, that sounds very right. Dark is Scorpio’s domain. All those planets in her 11th (Aquarian house) give her shock value! Silence of the Lambs and Panic Room!

IQ 132 is no surprise with her Moon in smart Virgo conjunct Uranus, the Aquarian planet of genius! Jodie Foster is also highly educated, having earned a degree from Yale University in literature.

Mars in Leo gives her powerfully heroic action and is a rights fighter, leader! As a child, she was attacked by a lion (Leo) and carried briefly in its mouth while filming Disney’s Napoleon and Samantha (1972)!

Jupiter in Pisces in the 3rd house of communications lets her learn languages easily! She has a good ear for listening to nuances. Fluent in French by age 14, she spoke her own lines in the film Stop Calling Me Baby!(1977), the film A Very Long Engagement (2004) and the film The Brave One (2007). She learned spanish at a young age. She was also fluent in Italian by age 18. That’s 4 languages!

That Jupiter also gives her the empathy to engage her roles as if she were that character! Three planets, Moon, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, give her a plethora of vital details that nail it! Her first significant role came in 1976 as a child prostitute in Taxi Driver, for which she received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1989, for playing a rape victim in The Accused. In 1991 she starred in The Silence of the Lambs as Clarice Starling, a gifted FBI trainee, assisting in a hunt for a serial killer, winning Jodie her second Academy Award for Best Actress and establishing her as an international movie star. Sexuality and murder hunts are primal Scorpio themes. She’s an astonishingly gifted woman.

Scorpios are noted for their needs for privacy, holding secrets. Jodie has 2 sons but won’t state who their father is, speculated to be Randy Stone or Mel Gibson. And she’s lesbian. Her ‘eccentricity’ is related to her Moon, women, conjunct Uranus, the planet of different. It took a long time before she came out publicly. But she did in 2007. For many years she had been been a secret donor to Randy’s charity, the Trevor Project, giving more than £300,000, named after the short film, Trevor, for which Stone won an Academy Award in 1994. The charity aims to help young people struggling with their sexuality.

Strongly philanthropic Aquarian, Jodie has also supported the Clothes Off Our Back, GO Campaign, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Small Steps Project, and St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

Food for thought. Scorpio, sign of therapists, Jodie says ‘Being understood is not the most essential thing in life.’

Scorpio 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Scorpio Phoenix Constellation Seen Only at Samhain [Halloween]!

Leo is the cat with 9 lives. Scorpio rises again! It is the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes!

If you are brave enough to venture out on Samhain night, Halloween, and if it is a moonless night, you will find an enchanting array of stars emblazoned across the celestial sphere. This year it is close to the Nov 3 Full Moon.

Rising along the southern horizon, Phoenix, an obscure constellation, spreads its wings into the night sky around 10:00 P.M.  Its highest star, in the center, is Ankaa. Although the constellation will never fully rise in the Northern Hemisphere, most of it can be seen only at Samhain [Halloween], remaining true to its elusive mythological nature. It is also a significant Samhain observation, as the phoenix is a symbol of death and rebirth. Search the sky along the horizon directly south (appropriately enough, the direction associated with elemental fire), to find Phoenix rising. The bright star Fomalhaut (part of the constellation Pisces) serves as your guide. Just above the treetops, Fomalhaut will be above and to the right of Phoenix’s wings.

Thank you, Granny Moon.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Scorpio 2017 – Nov 2018!

Scorpio Woman Fireflies Lantern Magic Rainbow at Night

Lighting the Path with nature’s rainbow magic in the Night…

Worldwide Scorpio’s work will be significantly involved, one way or another, with disaster cleanup and recovery, environmental matters, this next year. Water and purification will play a strong part. Dangerous structures, mental and physical disease prevention will require attention. Scorpio carries the internal and eternal Light in the Darkest of times, the Pathfinder shwoing us the ways to release what’s keen and fine in us!

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Scorpio’s year to come. Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! 

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Water and earth Pluto and Capricorn are in natural harmony with Scorpio. They have been and will be showing Scorpio the powerful distillation of techniques, practices tested by the expert elders before them, that have stood the tests of Time. There may be a serious commitment to be made before joining the ranks, but the reward may be worth it forever. Just be sure you want to know and owe that much. Will you have freedom to make changes of your own?

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Pisces is one of the rare signs that can see more than Scorpio, the greater picture. A Scorpio who knows his own blind spots can engage Pisces to open more gateways. The tides of Neptune can cleanse Scorpio, who doesn’t trust this to just anyone. The relief of the cleansing of invisible debris is beyond words. Scorpio has held some secrets so long he forgets he no longer needs to hold them, forgot he had! The Phoenix has lain hidden, a faint ember. Now with open space, renewed air flow, the flame grows bright again, the Kundalini is back!

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! It comes to Scorpio like an invitation or an irresistible corruption! Scorpio loves intensity and it’s like a moth to the flame, LOL! Scorpio loves to see what makes things tick, and Uranus in Aries can’t be bought, so what’s the story?! Scorpio likes his safety, yet like a cat with 9 lives, recovers again and again, so he’s off, perhaps pretty quietly, to check things out. Once out of the lair, who knows what will happen?! He may return with new skills, or vanish never to be seen again, having more fun than one could have ever thought of!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. But Uranus is the Earth Shaker and there may be clusters of shakes! Your life may be loosened, electrified, askew, a bit out of control. Understatement. Scorpio will be quite aware of Uranus in Taurus it’s opposite sign. They make a symbolic T Square, the effect of 90 degrees apart. Uranus rules Aquarius, mid sign to Taurus and Scorpio, shaking all their foundations. When the Earth changes shapes, Scorpio’s water flow is also without control, following new channels due to the shifts in gravity. No choice but to go. Observation points change. Strength counts. In your own life, anticipate the possibilities. Explore in advance as possible. If areas in your life need shoring up, get to it. If you are up for the ride, get the best darned river raft you can lay your hands on and keep up with your workouts!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes, Aries initiates. Chiron enters Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Scorpio’s best strategy is to be ready to receive the healing. They are used to being the healer themselves, so may lose a little time initially getting used to the idea that what they know isn’t all of it! What they’ve got is good, but there IS more! Chiron lays out some subtle relationship insights, business understanding that seems more magical than money making, but pans out anyway, especially in the long term. Sexuality itself is likely to be such a pervading softening experience that you forget who you are or were…orgasm is only a part of a greater unfolding.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! During those years, Chiron will be intriguing Scorpio to follow him on an inscrutable sied path. Chiron in Aries will challenge, taunt, and there will be laughs! Kokopelli dances before us, dashing and silly, but has our attention! At times it’s tempting to swat him like an annoying fly, but, unique beyond words, almost scary, he does know the way better than we do! It’s a test of trust for sure.

SATURN builds from 23 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through November 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn sextiles Libra. Work and play. Travel and people. Building and lasting Beauty. History and future potential. Lot of nice options here, connections being made. Learning and observing leads to restored faith and this year, especially as applied to recovery from fires, floods, quakes. Ideas for whole new businesses will spring up.

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

Those with Saturn 23 to 29 degree Sagittarius factors in your charts will be having your Sagittarian Saturn Returns between now and Dec 19! Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s target far, far away. Saturn knows so much is doable. One step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place built, the very process teaching hope. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business!

In Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, Scorpio will find a fellow determined intense alliance. Saturn will appreciate Scorpio’s hard work, encourage fund raising for profound causes. He will help Scorpio learn to control obsessions, compulsions, use his timing more wisely. Scorpio may not always like the rules and control, but can accommodate if there is a necessity to do the job, especially when there is respect for the Gatekeeper. But don’t be surprised to find yourself sneaking off for some personal moments. Because of your much needed amazing skills, perhaps as an investment specialist, you will be let to get away with a few transgressions. Saturn may bring you to take action when estimating motives of businesses and personal partners indicate they may need clearing away or grateful recognition.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

JUPITER moves from 2 Scorpio to 2 Sagittarius!Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments and answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery, murdering children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. Let  your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter in its own sign Sagittarius! Is that running away or running to?! Do they take their teaching seriously or are they traveling nomads who get away with things, literally, because they are fancy free? They may be the head of the university, or home schooling their children. But blue skies and all kinds of weather call them. They have to be moving. They love different lands and people. Import/export businesses have their name on them, but somebody else has to do the paperwork! They are accused of being procrastinators, and maybe so, but to them it’s just doing something else that they like doing better at the time. Many don’t want to be tied down by home ownership or kids, even marriage. If you are lucky, you may get to join them on their travels. Having a school in a foreign land or two or three, combines that travel lust and sharing the knowledge. They are natural born Seers. They are potently aware of shifting perspectives, directions and future potentials. That’s why they seem so lucky! They are in the right place at the right time. They generally have marvelous health and live long and happy.

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – Moon in Scorpio, double Sagittarius

If your Jupiter is in these Scorpio or Sagittarius degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Here’s the Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

2017

Scorpios Clear the Path!

Scorpio Nyx Greek Goddess covering the world with darkness

Nyx is the Greek Goddess of darkness and night, daughter of Chaos, a great beauty. She carries the cloak of the night. She sweeps away the day, covering the world with its darkness where new visions are born. In some stories she was the mother of Gaia and Uranus, mother of witches and sorceresses. She, like Hades, possessed a hood that made her able to look at the universe without being noticed.

The Phoenix rising from its own ashes represents the purification process, the Kundalini rising, awakening to the power we have deep within, releasing strength we didn’t know we have. Such miraculous Transformation may be painful, ecstatic, both! There is adjustment. There is vulnerability as we take on greater tasks of the Soul walking among the remaining live embers. Living is more sensitized. What we merely observed before now becomes a part of us. We have a deeper compassion and at the same time we know more when to let go when either they or we have done all that can be done at this time. We have a profound ability to share – listening, comfort, resources.

Our human psyche needs to be cleared of obsessive repetitive blocking thought patterns. Fears can be exorcised. Horrific past life and current abuses need to be replaced by healing actions of ourselves and others. Building a safe cocoon of trust with others who understand and are strong is needed for dark times that come as part of natural processes.

As the Phoenix allows the fire of Ascension, we must purge our haunting desires. Some toxic foods and behaviors, abusive input allowed from others, can be avoided. Spend less time in those places, or none at all! Practice change. Let your body heal that you may think clearly. Be genuine in letting go of judgments. Send care when you are strong enough not to be pulled back into a trouble zone.

In these times of recent natural disasters worldwide, pray for symbolic debris to be cleared for creating something new, better. Hospitals with updated apparatus – new departments, teachers that needed that chance to enhance learning, for new relationships that are formed, for new ways of relating. Let that enchanting Scorpio smile of yours brighten the way. Volunteer, give a helping hand. Surprise someone with a gift, no matter how small. Let them know you are thinking of them, even love them. Make that phone call and keep it an equal exchange of Spirit – listen with heart, tell something meaningful about yourself. Start small, build big.

Children see how we do – especially Scorpio children! They have keen eyes, ears and hearts. Let them see what you do that would be the way they would like to be treated, or as you wished you had been treated when you were a little one. Clear the way for them to proceed, be strong. Allow them to admit faults, tell you who they are and what they need. If you don’t be able to spend as much time with them personally, see what you can do about that. Clear yourself.

Elders may need some special time too as they have aging matters and are less able to take care of themselves, fret about it. Do what you can, know your limits, get help. Along with Virgo, many caregivers have strong Scorpio as well. They clean up, administer healing remedies, secure medical care, assist will making, often manage monies, counsel and keep your elder on an even keel when they can, and interface with family. Their know-how and recommendations are invaluable.

Relationships are serious for Scorpios. Their intent is to share deeply. Sexuality is one of their gifts. Healing though this closeness is just about immortal! Some will cheat, but if they are not the cheating kind, you can trust them forever in any situation. If you lie, steal from them, or you cheat, they may forgive and forgive, but when they give up, it’s over. They clear their own Path and move on. No begging on earth will bring them back.

Making investments is another of their gifts. Scorpios move our money around to the best places possible. They clear the path to astute business mergers. They listen to the accountant for the best returns on our investments! They can build resources to send our kids to university, get the best medical care, secure our retirement and elder care, make our wills and end of life arrangements! Scorpios are strong Souls. They face our most important needs, and life crises with us.

Scorpios are noted for their psychic instincts. You will feel totally safe taking a walk in the dark with them. That is their natural element of the day. They can smell keenly. They hear with their 6th sense. They feel the shift in air flow, temperature. They know when someone is near even if they can’t see them. They sense motives and intent, including yours. When something is wrong with your health they know that too. Good poker players! Little gets by them. Often martial arts are one of their talents – if needed, they can fight for you or silently gather information or survival goods desperately needed. They are human too, so know that at times, perhaps when they have issues of their own, their perceptions can be off. Then it’s your turn to be there for them. Psychic people often have psychic friends and clients. They ‘know’ each other.

When you meet someone with natural charisma, it’s likely they have prominent Scorpio, or Scorpio’s planet Pluto, placed strongly in their astrological chart. They can be unattractive by cultural standards, and yet…or they can be blindingly superb, sex appeal off the charts! They might scare you a bit and take some getting used to. Or you may be in a head over heels meltdown and, uh, willing to do anything, LOL! Not all Scorpios are ‘dark’ or dangerous looking. There be blonde Scorpios too! Either way, be a bit careful. Get to know them, but do also give them a chance. It may be they are at a power level you aren’t used to rather than their actual demeanor that makes you cautious. But if your instinct is to get the heck away, do it. No jumping in the web just to see what will happen!

If you are lucky, they can be one of the best friends you will ever have! One way or another, they will save your life though it may not be the way you expected!

Happy Birthdays, Virgos!

Virgo Faith HIll, husband Tim McGraw Singers

Singer Faith Hill and her husband Tim McGraw arrive at the 48th ACM Awards in Las Vegas April 7, 2013.  (Reuters)

Perhaps you have heard of Faith Hill. She’s an unusual Virgo and there are reasons for that. Primarily she started as a country singer. Born Sept 21, 1967, we don’t have a birthtime for her, but she does have Pluto, Uranus and her Sun together in Virgo. Uranus is singers and Pluto is wealth. She has sold over 40 million albums and accumulated 11 number one singles on the Country charts. Uranus rules the world at large, and Pluto takes it to the extreme!

She has Jupiter and Venus together in Leo. She’s golden with the classic chocolate brown eyes, though at times the camera picks up a beautiful hazel color just like my Virgo Aunt Ruth had. She has golden hair and often dresses gold. Golden gowns and lots of shiny, just like the Sun, Leo’s ‘planet,’ a shining star!

Faith’s romantic Leo planets have brought her a most unusual success! She is super successful making adoring duets with her husband Tim McGraw, a looker in his own right! They make it a rule not be be apart more than 3 days at a time.

She has come a long way. Adopted. Quit college, was discovered after some time at Nashville. Her Moon in Taurus gives more good looks, a sensuous voice, and perseverance. She has lots of records, both numbers of records sold, and has set some records! The song ‘Wild One,’ on her first album, made her the first female country singer in 30 years to hold Billboard’s #1 position for four consecutive weeks! When she followed her album Faith with Breathe, it debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Country and all genre charts, ahead of albums by Mariah Carey and Savage Garden. “The Way You Love Me” hit the top ten as well (#6), and became one of the longest running singles in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 (57 weeks)! The album won all kinds of awards!

Hill has been honored by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Grammy Awards, the American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards and so many more in so many ways. In 2001 she was named one of the 30 most powerful women in America by Ladies Home Journal.

Classic Virgo book lover! Hill used her 1999 tour to support a national children’s book drive. Fans who donated books at one of her concerts were entered into a drawing to meet her personally after the show. The effort resulted in the donation of 35,000 children’s books, which were distributed to hospitals, schools, libraries, and daycare centers in 40 cities across the United States.

Hero and Heroine! True to the community planet Uranus conjunct Faith’s sun, in the days immediately following Hurricane Katrina, Hill and her husband, who was raised in Louisiana, joined groups taking supplies to Gulfport, Mississippi. The two also hosted several charity concerts to benefit those who were displaced by the storm. Later in the year the couple established the Neighbor’s Keeper Foundation, which provides funding for community charities to assist with basic humanitarian services in the event of a natural disaster or for desperate personal circumstances.

Their Soul2Soul II Tour 2006 became the highest grossing country music tour ever with a gross of $90 million. It was named “Major Tour of the Year” by the prestigious Pollstar Magazine, beating out such heavyweights as Madonna and the Rolling Stones. In a special gesture, the couple donated all of the profits from their performance in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina relief.

Currently they are in progress with their 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour! Here’s the schedule if you would like to see them!

Released in April, Faith & Tim Preach R E S P E C T Toward Women With New Song ‘Speak to a Girl’ They take turns trading verses. First Faith offers a female’s perspective, then Tim echos from the man’s side. As parents of three teenage daughters, you can see why it is so important to them. Blessed be.

Virgo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

8.29.17 Moon Saturn Antares Photo Op Rings of Saturn!

 

Moon near Saturn and Antares on August 29!

Use the Moon to find Saturn, the 6th planet outward from the sun. Saturn now shines in front of the constellation Ophiuchus, of the sometimes called the forgotten constellation of the zodiac. Find out more about Ophiuchus on our Tonight post for August 13.

Saturn is the most distant world that you can easily see with the unaided eye. Moreover, you can view Saturn’s majestic rings with nothing more than a modest backyard telescope. Even though the four outer planets (planets orbiting the sun outside the asteroid belt) – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – have a ring system of sorts, Saturn’s rings are the most spectacular by leaps and bounds.

This year, in 2017, the north side of Saturn’s rings are maximally tilted toward Earth. So right now is a great time to dust off that telescope and gaze at Saturn, the crown jewel of the solar system.

[Oh, and Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpio Constellation! If you know where Scorpio is, you can find Antares then Saturn!]

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2017- Aug 2018!

The super amazing Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse in Leo catapulted us into Sun in Virgo Aug 22! What an entry! The 5 part Lunar sequence linked with the Mercury Retrograde cycle is finishing with Virgo’s New and Full Moons!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, that happened the last 8 days of 2016.

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The final set of six started July 4. September 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron and opposes Uranus, Oct 10 Jupiter enters Scorpio! Nov 2 Saturn squares Chiron, and the entire set finishes 11/11 with Saturn trine Uranus! That’s a go ahead!

Jupiter is in its final 49 days of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to find good footing and balance to make and weather relationships. Make alliances that will hold true through times to come, go to schools and places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, trade and exchange wisely.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn!

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Virgo’s year to come. Expect several maturities, endings, new beginnings and exciting new intentions!

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Pluto and Capricorn are both harmonious with Virgo, another earth sign. Pluto and Virgo are both perfectionists and hard workers. Pluto can take it to extremes. This is one rare instance when Virgo may put on the brakes! Virgo is a fine craftsman, uses the best materials. Capricorn goes for durability, strength and protection and is willing to forfeit some details to get the job in on time. Pluto and Virgo are both healers. Capricorn bides his time, steps in when the time is right. Expect some sifting away the chaff.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Pisces is opposite Virgo. Virgo heals the body and Mind while Pisces heals the Soul. Virgo seeks data that explains and procedures that makes sense. Pisces goes way beyond that into an inexplicable greater realm, seeing what may happen that makes no logic but comes to pass anyway. The Soul has its own course. Sometimes we understand; sometimes there is a greater picture that is more important, operates in a different order than reason. If Pisces gets lost in the spiritual ethers, Virgo pulls the sails back to a stable flow with the currents, for a possible course correction.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Virgo loves a better way, but wants to keep her routine! Uranus is the unpredictable, unstable at times, ChangeMaker fast as lightning! Aries is fast too, easily distracted by the next new thing! Great as a consultant, but Virgo is the one usually left with incorporating the conversion. Virgo is considered a flexible, adaptable sign, but this will call for the max! Routines can not be counted on, the rules may be changed daily! Virgo calls on the inventors and leaders to slow down at times, and for them to be even more creative in finding ways for their ideas to be more easily assimilated. Virgo first wants to see how it works and know why. She safeguards the system.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. Virgo quite agrees. The Uranian wildcard is always extraordinary, so can do that too! Taurus and Virgo are both earthy. Taurus rules fur, farm animals; Virgo rules pets. Hopefully some animals may be more protected. Taurus wants comfort and Virgo wants their patients to be relieved of suffering that more of their energy will go to healing. Taurus grows plants that Virgo may harvest for seeds and use as less expensive medicinals. Uranus in Taurus may find some fascinating massage or yoga techniques never used before. Virgo can always use a little relaxation. A walk on the land would suit them both. Taurus is ruled by Venus, beauty and value. Virgo organizes patterns and has incredible craft skills making exquisite quilts, wood carvings, ceramic tiles, sophisticated clothing designs!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Virgo, as with Neptune, is opposite Chiron. There is more affinity since Chiron was a noted healer, and Virgo was the village medicine person and midwife. She carried her basket of herbs. She was WiseWoman, who counseled mind as well as healing body. She was High Priestess at times, knowing the magic that went with the medicine. Chiron suffered long, learned a lot, became teacher. Virgo works on a daily basis. Chiron in Pisces may be a more spirit master, giving insights that help the daily ministrations find a way to be received and absorbed. At times Virgo may need to stand aside, then return when the patient is ready again. Good health and clear thinking are important! Chiron and Virgo may do great business together, become partners, even marry!

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Virgo has its tried and true ways, so some upstart may have to prove himself before Virgo accepts the new ideas! Rarely does Virgo let themselves be rushed, but if the cure works, will do anything in their power to distribute it. If it is not properly vetted, Virgo may demand the proper processes be applied. Aries marvels at the details Virgo does, may have to jump in to move things faster, save the day! Virgo could be temporarily overwhelmed, but can carry on as the dust settles.

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through September 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn squares Virgo, but is also an Earth planet, earth sign combination. Saturn has a greater range of vision in Sagittarius and he’s gotten used to it! He keeps Virgo lined up with the greater plan and aware of how much time it will take. Some details make all the difference. Others will be let go by agreement in context of the great good, the best for all. In Sag, Saturn wants work to be broader, culture inclusive or tightens the work to the most meager and cost cutting possible, perhaps choosing quantity versus quality, foreign workers at the lowest pay. Virgo is known for fine craftsmanship, stands for consumer rights, and dignity, safety and health care for workers, no animal or human abuse. They may part company if compromise isn’t possible. Find work where your contribution is respected and celebrated, serves your community!

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s target far, far away. Saturn knows so much is doable. One step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Capricorn and Virgo are in it together for the long run. Virgo usually has a notable skill they deserve credit for! Capricorn sees that talent and puts them to work unless Virgo hires them to run things! Capricorn builds the laboratory that Virgo may do the trials and testing. Caps make Virgo more aware of time spent and effective timing. Virgo suggests health and nutrition techniques that Capricorn know will promote a more healthy older age. Hand in glove.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 20 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Virgo, one of Libra’s neighboring signs, is so different. Their quiet performance is honed through intense focus, trial and error, hands on experience. Jupiter can be their sales rep, work the showroom, publish the news releases! Virgo is so dedicated they sometimes forget to do business. Jupiter sees their value and wants to partner! To unassuming Virgo, it seems like Jupiter is making a big fuss about it all. Virgo sometimes doesn’t even realize how extraordinary what they have done is! Well traveled Jupiter sees it instantly! It stands far above the rest! Ask this artisan first when it is a good time to talk, and don’t keep them too long. Make your points, requests, go away and let them think it over…. Ha! Let yourself be discovered!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio straddle Libra the middleman! Jupiter is still moving things along, confident and optimistic! The traveler seeker is always looking for amazing things. Scorpio is often obsessed with perfection and Virgo can offer that quality! Scorpio, a psychological healer, is seeking a deeper value, and Virgo, a fellow healer, body/mind, always shares. Jupiter calls Virgo to bring it out further into teaching, whether private tutoring, a small group or to as many as will listen or by writing the book! Jupiter is publisher, Scorpio is journalist, Virgo is author, especially of DIY and training manuals. Time to gather the information, Jupiter may flood you with it! Organize it, synthesize the various facets into a working sequence, arrange publishing! Jupiter in Scorpio is a master at getting funding and Virgo is super at accounting. This work will help many and have a charismatic appeal. Worthy investment.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Virgo EarthKeepers!

Virgo Earthkeeper Master Gardener

Virgos have a knack for making our lives a more beautiful place!

Tending gardens, houseplants and humans comes naturally for them. Mowing your lawn or a Horticulture or Landscaping degree are things they are good at. They have an eye for natural spacing and placing. Being with Nature reduces stress and improves sleep, balances a busy life, increases happiness! It works even if it involves just nurturing a few pots on a balcony! Good pesticide free organic food keeps us healthy, restores us. You are what you eat and you think more clearly. Flowers are like sunshine to our every thought.

Mind and body go together! Nutrition and nursing takes care of every detail. Through their clear attention our thinking follows a divine order, we save time, have time to do more elegant things as well! Intricate professions like bookkeeping/accounting, systems analysis, efficiency consulting show us more powerful percentages and abundant payoffs. Weeding our lives of unnecessary clutter  and cleaning up literally makes our lives brighter!

Growing humans is sometimes hard work on both sides. Virgo usually knows quite a bit. Delivering the knowledge isn’t always easy for either the Virgo or the other person, possibly another Virgo! Virgo can have a bite with her bark, even when there is good intention behind it. The trick is to educate at appropriate times, ask if it is a good time to talk, talk when no one is tired, with a smile of appreciation on your face and mean it. It’s not what you say, but how you say it. A good rule to follow is 5 appreciations to one criticism. Know that too much criticism unkindly delivered has consequences. You may lose a connection, even damage the other person, especially if a Virgo child or mate. If you are clever at criticism, you can be clever with praise! The process is not to prove how smart you are or one up to make yourself bigger or better than, but to share and make an ally, pull together in the traces. Well oiled machine. Hats off to you for your efforts.

Working independently is often best. Virgos have their ways, often a routine. Interruptions throw them off course. Delegating is not so easy. They like it precise and excellent quality. They are quite willing to do that for you. Too much fine tuning and sometimes they lose their job. However, if poor quality materials or building jeopardize lives, they may need to be in a safe place to blow the whistle. Believe me, they will have the data and evidence to back up what they claim. Heroes and heroines. Some can be good instructors, but they need good students that can keep up. Virgos deliver a lot of well thought out information in a very short time! On-the-job training, hands on examples are the best for them.

Though Virgos are often avid readers, have a library of their own, book learning is just not their best job training medium unless it is a do-it-yourself manual! Hands on, on-the-job training works better. They can see it and feel it, prove it to themselves. Yet Virgos are #1 as authors! They can write and write and write! Mystery novels! Virgos are consummate puzzle solvers! Famed Agatha Christie was Virgo rising, Saturn and Sun in Virgo, Jupiter in the 6th house! Chart They write super informative detail by detail how-to blogs, stunning documentaries, well organized training manuals!

Virgos do a lot of daily business. They are not usually heavy lifters, but keep things livable and in running order. Repairs, housekeeping, gardening, laundries, trash removal, elder caregivers. If they have a bit of Sagittarius in their chart, expect a hotel/bed and breakfast or university work or works at the racetrack! Ones with a bit of Cancer in their charts may tend the genealogy archives at the library or museum. Throw in some Taurus and you may get a veterinarian that adores fur persons and livestock. With Aquarius you may get a double checking researcher who is honored for the excellence of their trustworthy work.

Environmental concern is strong with them. They love our Earth, often are walkers. Toxic cleanup, restoration and protection of habitats, protecting wildlife whether running a campaign, a rescue organization, a  preserve or being a ranger are favored. They can do meaningful research seeking long term results, trends for climate change. Don’t be surprised if your Virgo becomes a Master Gardener!

Simply put, Virgos do a monumental job as EarthKeepers, in so many ways, every single day.

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

Furka Pass, Switzerland, was used as a location in the James Bond film Goldfinger. From Twisted Sifter, LOL!

In some areas switchbacks are a necessity. Retrogrades as we know them astrologically are forward, back, forward. The same degrees are covered three times. They may be in one sign or lap over two signs, the end of one, beginning of the other. This time we have the last two degrees of Fire sign Sagittarius and the first 15, half, of Earth sign Capricorn. Sagittarius is the last fire sign, important for inspiration, purpose. It has the rainbow arc far seeing vision, can be wise; Capricorn is the mountain goat, and together they go!

Gaining ground or getting down! Sagittarius and Capricorn will usually choose up and down switchbacks as they cross country, no fear of heights. Sagittarian long striding legs just want to see what’s up there, see the views! Capricorn shorter legs have the surefooted goatly stamina, love the terrain, the crisp feel of the cool air, a keen sense of achievement, like maybe Everest! Both love a good scramble! Winter sports are grand, and climbing, cycling, skiing!

Each direction and level gives a different view, vantage point. But these are to be observed, incorporated, as we go along. We do get stalled at the 8 day direction change points (retrograde and direct stations), giving us a breather, a time to contemplate, assimilate, gather resolve, refocus. But is isn’t for long. Mercury Retrograde is only one of the simultaneous planetary happenings, and it is swept along, tussled and tumbled, a rolling stone, bumping into others, impelled to share what it has seen and learned. And, of course, it never stopped going forward in the sky anyway! It is a viewpoint that occurs because of the Earth, Mercury, Sun relationship as a faster planet moves past a slower planet. Nor is it unusual, happens 3 to 4 times every year, giving 18% of us Mercury Retrograde in our birth charts – thinkers, fact checkers, sometimes learning difficulties.

Mercury is information matters. What you learn, how you learn, how you communicate. There comes the paperwork and contracts, keypads, computers, cells. Mercury Rx does 180s on you, mixes up appointments, the electronics go fritz, there are often misunderstandings as things change quickly.  Confirm appointments.

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle starts Dec 1. The Retrograde dates are Dec 19 to Jan 8, Christmas and New Year! It finishes the whole cycle Jan 27, 2017. Prepare in advance!

Sagittarius is pretty much a forward moving fire sign, but Capricorn minds the time and makes sensible precautions, does due diligence. Gear and autos are given their maintenance in advance, batteries purchased. They line up experts that may possibly be needed. Timing may be critical before winter storms, so they are mindful of weather reports, choose their itinerary carefully. Consultations are recorded, any changes are dated and initialed. If purchases are made during the Rx cycle Cap gets the warrantee.

Sagittarius is generally pretty confident of choices, but we all know about procrastination when something just doesn’t sit right. Time will tell, and at times, no choice being the choice. Sag matters may be where to move, if to move over the holidays. Those of you with chart factors in the last three degrees of mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, or especially Sagittarius, this year, if you can wait, move after Mercury goes forward Jan 8. Have your astrologer do your AstroLocality as soon as you can, and select the best timing for your move. If you must move, get something temporary, wait to get furnishings until it is a more permanent situation. There may also be concerns about where and if to go to school. Stories may change as information is gathered, opinions may morph as we come across better ways. Let it flow.

Capricorn deals with reality. While Mercury is Rx this time you with factors from 0 to 18  in the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and especially Capricorn, will likely have the most changes. Capricorn careers may shift – more holiday work, get laid off, or a new job that doesn’t turn out as expected. Stay well rested. Real estate may figure in. If you can’t wait to sell, be sure to use an experienced realtor. You may find yourself given notice to move. Papers about sciences could change, facts repudiated, segments lost. Backup everything as you go! Parental responsibilities, especially of Fathers, may be challenged or mended. Youth or being a senior could be a benefit or cause for concern. People from your past may swing by again. Remember why it didn’t work before, but check in to see if they have new valuable information. Knees, skin and bones need protection, be careful. Breakdowns may happen, the holiday mentals or while traveling. Keep, extra food, water, thermal gear, a space blanket on board.

This rephrasing Mercury brings, keeps our mind working, our attention shifting. Excellent changes and opportunities are possible. Stay alert. It is concurrent with the four outer planet aspects that are happening intensely over only seven days at Christmas time, Dec 24, 26, 28/29, and 31! I’m calling these the Holiday Four, and there is a fifth aspect that is quite close at that same time! See more

Whatever happens, keep the long term in mind, keep an open mind. What may at first appear to be a problem may resolve in an unexpected way that you are grateful for later. Deliberately put Retrograde techniques into your life! Turn around and look back from time to time. Change the level of your vantage point. Look out further than your usual perimeter. Stand still until you really see.
