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.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations, transits, are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go well with you….

Though Jan 1 is our calendrical New Year, Jan 4  Earth’s perihelion, when it is closest to the Sun during the year, is thought by some to be the true New Year!  For others yet, it is Winter Solstice, Dec 21, marking the return of the Sun King!  Whichever you celebrate, or if you celebrate them all, an equal opportunity celebator, may your New Year be loving, wise, healthy, abundant,  joyous!  If you are a Dragon, it’s your year!  For us astrologically minded, we are thinking it is a very eventful year to come – the Venus Transit Sun, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn exact for the first times, our Presidential Elections, 12:12:12, the 26,000 year turnover of the Mayan Calendar!   Blessed be!  See the Important 2012 Astro*Logical Highlights!  I’m so glad we are all connected.  This is a journey to be shared!

Jan 8 Full Moon at 18 Cancer/Capricorn, 11:30 PM Pacific, our first of 2012!  It starts the 2012 Lunar year at 18 degrees, the closest and only planet in the mix is Mars at 21 Virgo!  The Moon is sextile Mars, the Sun is trine!  Looks like motivation, leadership, exercise make the difference.  In practical Virgo, it could be organizing your work, taking health matters into your own hands, getting a new pet?!  Enlisting the help of your family may cost less, or simply hiring a helper may keep peace.  There may be tender feelings with Mama Moon in her own water sign Cancer, so gentle down your approaches, soften your voice.  Capricorn can seem too businesslike at times, but gets the job done; Mars is so gung-ho there is no particular thought, just spontaneous action.  If Cancer has been dawdling, eating too much, Mars and Cap may be just the ticket to get out and get something going!  Often even a small start is all it takes to tip the balance!

Getting ready for the 2012 Mars Retrograde Jan 23 to April 13 Pacific times!  Mars retrogrades in earth sign Virgo from 23 degrees back to 3.  Get your machinery in order, including your vehicle, bicycle if you commute with it.  Clean things up that could cause a slow down or lost time looking for lost items.  When you put that item where you will be sure to find it, perhaps put notes in a couple of places to help you locate it in case your thinking changes by when you need it.  Get orders filled, have enough stock on hand as you can anticipate to keep things going smoothly so you don’t have to wait for delayed materials.  We are talking 11 weeks’ worth.  See your health advisors.  Take care of any pet matters.  Take care of complications with new projects, employer/employee matters, tenancy issues, bookkeeping.  Some of this will depend on which house(s) and which of your planets are activated in your personal chart, so let’s take a look at that for you.

Lights on, heads up!  Get out your Jupiter thunderbolts and let’s dance!

July 2, Dec 6, and Feb 14, Valentine’s Day 2012, Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces! This one will be while Chiron is at 5 Pisces, the first of the three times. July 2 is the last day of the Sun Grand Square, so the build up to this sextile will be challenging, and the challenge will be helped by the teaching healing perspectives the sextile brings. In addition, the Grand Square will be helped by the concurrently building first-time July 7 Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn only 5 days later! That will bring phenomenal growth, power, possible wealth, and potential teaching healing, intensify complex situations. I doubt solutions will be simple or immediate, but they will certainly be fascinating! July 7 is the first day of the Venus Grand Square through the 13th, so the follow through needs a bit of finesse. Let love soften the obstacles even, perhaps especially, when the going already seems good. This will be like a little super challenge. Make a point of loving it uP!

Chiron and Pluto are both thought to be healers. Chiron is concerned with teaching, marriage and business, all partnerships of a kind. Teacher/Student, you and your mate, your business/customers – clients/partners.  In Pisces, they need to be magical!  Fiery spirited Jupiter likes teaching too. It travels about, goes to college, gathers a plethora of knowledge, stories, experience, inter cultural sharing, and brings it to the table for exchange. Jupiter is not so often interested in marriage, can be hard to catch. They are off to another adventure. They can be truth tellers, having points of view acquired on the road.  They see you well because they don’t know you, yet are astute observers since their survival depends on instant appraisals. Whether it be about you, your attitude, or the dynamics in your relationship, they likely have at least a part of the truth. True, they can project, seeing through their own lens, but still, what in you called that up in them? Jupiter is not as interested in money as Chiron and Pluto are. They make do as they go. They laugh and love, have fun, are offered shelter for their stories, do an odd job or two here or there, just enough for food maybe. They have expansive ideas, can see further beyond, since they must anticipate the weather, the temp of the locals, where it’s safe or not. Often their suggestions pan out, quite worth your hospitality, let alone the entertainment value!

Pluto is a no fool-around planet.  It seeks the Great Mystery, unabashedly looks at sex, wants to know how money works, and how it is we come to live and die.  It especially doesn’t fool around in Capricorn, that wants the job done toot sweet.  If things are not working, good, you find that out, done with it.  If you are going up the mountain at a steady pace, good, progress.  Cut losses when it makes sense, less whining, more doing.  It’s all ok.  Focus, use good timing, don’t give up.  Seek coaches and mentors right now!  Jupiter will laugh with you all the way to the bank because it has big ideas and is a great direction finder!  It just knows where the good stuff is!

Both these aspects are positive in classical astrology, so invite a teacher, traveler, soothsayer, to your table. Then listen. Learn about healing – of body, mind, Spirit. Plan a clever party, and laugh because you can and it’s even fun when you are on your knees!  Be free and thankful!

Make your appointment for a reading to see which areas of your chart these and other factors are activating!

PART 1, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Feb 3-4     SIX planet Aquarian New Moon stellium, Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!
Mar 3-5     SIX planet Pisces New Moon stellium
Sep 26-28     5 planet Libra, New Moon stellium

Bowls! Scoop and gather, hold, let settle, pour the blessings….

Capricorn Bowl, 3rd of Four: Dec 28 2010 to Jan 10, 2011 our planets are arcing Libra to Pisces, one side of the zodiac.
Aquarian Bowl, last of the series: Jan 25 to Feb 6, our planets are in a bowl pattern from Libra to Aries, with a SIX planet Aquarian stellium Feb 3-4! Feb 3-8 we have 5 planets in Aquarius until Chiron enters Pisces on the Feb 8th!

PART 2, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights! 

Retrogrades, Chiron’s New Pattern, Six Eclipses, Occultations, Planetary Extremes, Super Moons, Moon Void of Course, Chinese Year of the Rabbit!

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

Retrogrades Few  The usual outer planet retrogrades, no Mars or Venus retrogrades, Mercury 3 times as usual – Mar 30 to April 23 in Aries, Aug 2 to 26 in Leo/Virgo, and Nov 23 to Dec 13 in Sagittarius.

Chiron’s new pattern, retrograde degrees start overlapping each other. That means sometimes a planet in your chart may be activated 5 times rather than only the 3 times as in the past. The only other planets that do this are Pluto and Neptune. So their activations can, at times, be dense, and intense, repetitive, taking 3 years – the year before they are exact and the 2 years they are exact. If they activate planets in very close degrees, more than one planet at a time, in your chart, it can be intense indeed, complicated, at those times. If they activate a string of planets in your chart one after another, issues can cascade, one to the next, for years and years. You live through things longer than you would ever have thought possible. These are those lawsuits that go on and on, health matters that frazzle your Spirit, children that don’t get over things and have trouble growing up, couples that fight for years never-ending. If you are in such a sequence, get support, see your part in things, get informed, take especially good care of yourself. Call me for a reading, I’ll check for you.

SIX Eclipses in a year happens every 4.5 years or so, and we have a Unique Dark Moon!  Four of the six 2011 eclipses are Metonic returns of the eclipses of 1992, repeating on the same dates and degrees. The other two repeat the date and degrees of the New Moons! While many eclipses repeat at 19-year intervals, some do not. Eclipse Frequency

Jan 4 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 13 Capricorn, same day as Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces!
June 1 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 11 Gemini
   Jupiter enters Taurus, sextiles Neptune between the 6.1 and 6.15 eclipses, all of them preceding Summer Solstice!
June 15 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 24 Sagittarius
July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon 9 Cancer
July Two New Moons, July 1 & July 30! Call the second New Moon of July what you will! Dark Moon, Black Moon, Secret Moon, Spinner’s Moon, Finder’s Moon. The second one of the month is considered especially potent for magical practice.
Two eclipses during Mercury Retrograde! 
      Nov 23 Mercury Rx
      Nov 24 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 2 Sagittarius, on ThanksGiving Day!

      Dec 6 Jupiter sextile Chiron 2nd time
      Dec 10 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 18 Gemini
      Dec 13 Mercury Direct

Occultations are Eclipses, just not Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in conjunction in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.

Planetary Extremes, March Lineup!
Jan 3 Perihelion, Earth closest Sun; July 4 Aphelion Earth farthest from Sun.
Mar 9 Mars Perihelion, every 2 years
Mar 16  Mercury Perihelion, annual
Mar 17 Jupiter Perihelion, every 12 years!  This is the big one that is super charging 2011, the Aries Stellium!  Click here for more!
Mar 19 closest Perigee, Moon to earth; Apr 2 is the furthest Apogee, Moon’s distance from Earth. Quakes, volcanic eruptions, major storms, high tides are often at perigees. Apogees can be calm to the point of malaise.

6 Super Moons, one Extreme, 100% +

Feb 18, 2011 | 00.36 AM   |  Full Moon | 29 Leo
Mar 19, 2011 | 11.10 PM  | Full Moon | 28 Virgo  | Extreme, closest Perigee, to Earth. Jupiter perihelion March 17.
Apr 17, 2011  |   7.44 PM  |  Full Moon | 27 Libra
Sep 27, 2011 |   4.09 AM  | New Moon | 04 Libra
Oct 26, 2011  | 12.56 PM  | New Moon | 03 Scorpio
Nov 24, 2011  |  10.10 PM | New Moon | 02 Sagittarius | Partial Eclipse, ThanksGiving Day

Moon Void of Course April 4 to Aug 4, as Neptune enters Pisces, no outer planets, that’s Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn, and Jupiter, will be in late degrees, all are in new signs! That means the Moon will often have long Void of Course times when no planets are in late degrees of any of the signs. From the time a planet makes its last major aspect, a conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition, until it enters a new sign, is the time it is Void of Course, VC. The general interpretation is nothing will come of anything started during VC time. You go shopping for an item that is regular stock, and they are out of it that day! Sometimes it’s a good thing nothing comes of your effort, better left unsaid, so to speak, or, oops, thank God you didn’t do that! But not a preferred time for the interview for the job you really want. Yet, another interpretation is there is nothing to stop the matter, it’s a done deal. If the Moon’s last aspect was classically favorable, I would lean toward declaring a positive outcome for action taken. Generally, I would postpone if possible.

Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!

Wishing you a Magical Yule, Winter Solstice!

Magic is afoot!  This Winter Solstice moment, 3:39 PM Pacific, is preceded by the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 0:13 AM! 

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse VISIBLE just after midnight on the US westcoast – are you going to stay up to see it and wish the new year in?!  Many Earth Religion peoples will be doing just that!  Rain is forecast for some areas, but celebrate as you will – meditation, hot chocolate and a fire….  The Eclipse will be at 29 Gemini 21 with the Sun opposite in Sagittarius, an axis of mind and purpose.  How we think, what we think, what we pay attention to, how we gather information, how we express it, all affect outcome!  How we are able to learn limits or expands our range of effectiveness and sharing with others.  Without enough information and exchange of ideas, right on down the line, everyone loses.  If our attention wanders, we lose connection.  People feel that loss and wonder about your or their self esteem.  Our style of idea gathering taints or tantalizes, making people not or want to share with us again.  Our sharing style chokes the network, or invites joy and excitement of exchange!  You see?  And this is only the Gemini side of the Eclipse!

Sagittarius needs to know, so much, to have a fully informed, broad perspective, to choose the Living Truth, that changes as we grow!  Faith can be a fickle feature, because she too is a living thing!  Faith doesn’t just happen.  Faith is experienced, a product of a history of good choices, some your own, some of the people you trust.  Good choices may not make you wealthy, but they are true to you and your heart and Soul.  How you stand with you matters.  Without all the information, one makes choices that are short of the mark, never quite satisfying because something always feels awry, can’t quite put your finger on it.  So put those Geminis, or the Gemini part of yourself, to work.  Listen to them intently, help them focus where you need the info.  If it doesn’t feel like you have enough yet to make your decisions, send them out to bird dog more!  Then make wise choices for the Path you are traveling, the message you choose to publish.  Be continually wise, change when the input changes.  Expansion and growth are a powerful postures of a fully living Sagittarian!  It seems like luck, but forever the scanning observer in their far reaching adventures, it’s their kind of brilliance that saves them!

Yule, Winter Solstice is a grand time to snuggle, but keep your eyes wide open for the possibilities that grow from the root dark in Winter’s Night.  Many a profound insight springs from the eternal internal, a mere candle flicker only glimpsed, sometimes during a whimper.  We might be sad, we might feel like steel, but it comes.  The underworld has always been well respected, often feared, a testing place of Spirit, yet we come back more powerful, even if only quietly.  Power may be barking or whispering, yet it works.  This year, as since 2008, Pluto is near the 0 Capricorn Winter Solstice degree.  Pluto is the God of the Underworld, so this life and death, sharing and healing planet makes it all the more meaningful.  As many are suffering from financial losses, a time of sharing and creative healing springs, as the serpents on the Physician’s staff of Life, raising the Phoenix from its own ashes!   The Sun is always there, it’s just short days.  It may seem thinner, the light laid low across our skies, but still, it is there.  Never been anything wrong with slowing down, resting, noticing more of what is between the molecules.

The last degrees of a sign are always endings and beginnings.  The Eclipse is at 29 degrees, the last, and Solstice is 0 degrees, the first.  May your endings end well and beginnings be even better!  I wish you peaceful days.  I pray you take time to tell your love, appreciate the special in others, what’s good in you.  Happy Yule, Winter Solstice – Mama Earth’s New Year, and Eclipse!

Winter Solstice Day, Dec 21, I will post an overview of 2011!  There is much to come!

Sneak Preview! On April 29th through May 1st, 2011, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus, 6 planets, will all be ON FIRE in Aries!  Unbelievable passion, magic of Spirit!  Your Mother is impatient, your pen is pissed and potent, your Lover is sweet HOT, careful not to run the red light, exercise is a no-brainer, the mighty Truth stands on its hind legs and bites, change is electrifying and defying, a challenge to be alone together!!!!

NEWS!  I am now on twitter at SB_Astrology!  I would love it if you would like to follow me there! 

Mars is freshly into Sagittarius!  Take a longer walk, from one end of the rainbow to the other!  Mars in Sag is a truth seeker who likes to play along the Path and is willing to leap tall buildings!  It is the hero of cowboy poetry, hair streaming behind you explorer of fine adventures, mapmaker of new territories!  Time for vitamins with more verve, exercise with more vigor!   Maybe that grass really is greener! 

Until a little more practice, truth may be a blunt force.  A good leader can take  you beyond your fears, whether it is a gentle shove or looking you straight in the eye and saying it out loud.  Finally, let’s get all your cards on the table.  

Excellence in education!  Go for the right things to learn, things that will serve you well for the fit in your life, for the long term value.  Choose a potent first step that points to your intention.  As one of my friends says, 1, 2, 6!  That means, skip all the steps in the middle, make the leap.  When you are hot on spot, it works like that!  Focus is part of the power!

You have until Dec 7 to launch, to achieve a learning segment, to get where you are going.  Make your steps count.  Get to a vantage point, top of the mountain, chin up, take in the wide view.  Check all four directions, above and below, then focus, focus, focus!  There’s a lot of power in that horse with blinders!  Don’t let those blinders fool you; they aren’t for being blind!

Nov 1, Mars is at the Venus/Pluto midpoint, 3 degrees Sagittarius, with Venus at 3 degrees Scorpio, Pluto at 3 degrees Capricorn.

At 12:16 PM PDT, the Moon in Virgo exactly sextiles the Sun as the midpoint is also exact!  This midpoint is a passionate, creative combination, able to make very beautiful things.  Mars in Sag is frisky, ready to go!  It’s willing to stand up for the course it takes!  That could be a new relationship, new business!  Venus and Pluto can make a LOT of money!  Moon in Virgo is production oriented.  It is in harmony with the Sun in Scorpio, who can acquire the equipment and materials needed at a great price!  Even with Venus retrograde, ideas at this time may pan out with excellent returns given some adjustments through Dec 20th!

BOWL from Nov 2 to Nov 17, because of the way the planets are situated, all the planets are on one side of the Zodiac in the signs Virgo through Pisces, gradually shifting along into Libra through Aries!  That’s Virgo/Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap, Aquarius, Pisces/Aries.  This means there is a ‘Bowl’ effect, an ingathering, or a holding, nurturing.  Sometimes It may get a bit stuffy in there, but that can feel very comfy and safe.  If most of your planets are in those signs, you may feel vindicated, things are going your way.  You may feel energized, more aware than usual, focused on what you were meant to be!  These signs are primarily ones of being out in the world, so you may find yourself more out there than ever, or out there for the first time, or thinking about doing that.  Paradoxically, the ingathering effect may be just what you need to feel safe to come out to play!  Those of you with most of your planets in the signs on the other side of the Zodiac may feel a pull to go forth, to stretch, to extend your hands, to reach further, to explore!  Retain your true self, but try on the new.  Let your world get bigger!  Since you are not used to it, temporarily it may not feel so comfortable, but may be well worth the effort for the treasures you bring home!  We will get to know you better and there is a world to share!
