Full Snow SuperMoon!

Tuesday February 19 at 7:54 AM Pacific, 0 Virgo/Pisces 42 

Chiron into Aries! Potent 18 & 22/23 Degrees! Starts Pisces Mercury Retrograde Cycle!

Pisces Full Snow Moon 2019 Old Flying Ship

The dreamer is in full multi dimensional reality!

This is the largest of 2019s three SuperMoons! It is Bigger and Brighter! Hoping for clear viewing skies! 

This is the 4th Full Moon at 0 degrees – Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, now Pisces! Each has been a full arms open embrace to their sign! Sag started the Journey, Capricorn made it so, Aquarius shook the basket, now Pisces sweetens the Dream! The last of the five is in Aries at Spring Equinox, new beginnings par excellence!

Not only will the Full Moon be at zero, but so is Chiron the Shaman, newly in the springtime sign Aries the day before! As Pisces believes the visions, Aries births them out into the world! We champion the cause. In this case it is a cause that has been waiting 51 years for it to be its right time! Chiron will be trying new healing techniques to heal old wounds! He will be teaching new ideas that will spur his students to find methods that will change first responder treatments! Uranus is still in Aries for 16 more days! He has been blasting the doors open for Chiron, the healer with the wound. While he and Chiron are both in Aries, he will be sharing information, wisdom, setting new goals, then go on into Taurus. See more about Chiron into Aries! 

Pisces Sun’s big heart has causes of its own, but there is vast inclusive empathy for all. Many sacrifices have been made to get to this point. The Virgo Moon walking by always wants to serve, bring the best of all kinds of health at all levels. She tends in every way she can, daily. She cleans, organizes, feeds. She frets and cajoles. Works hard long hours. She’s good at paperwork, is a consummate woodworker/craftsperson, trains the new people well in every detail to run a smooth ship. 

Virgo is sensible and earthy. Pisces isn’t supposed to be. But they both want wellbeing, body and Soul. They are givers and helpers. Cosmic slaves to a healthy mind and spirit. Virgo can be a total skeptic, but she’s a keen observer and is fascinated at Pisces’ ability to foresee and suggest subtle corrections that work. She comes to respect his own form of art. Where she makes quilts and puzzles, he is making the beauty of swirls of music. She fills the accountant’s squares on the paper while he is seeking ecstasy in riding the waves of water and dreams. She can call him to task when a service is required that only he can do. She doesn’t often delegate, but there are times she properly knows it’s not her department.

Sun and Moon are both well linked with Uranus and Mars. Each have just aspected Uranus, the humanitarian planet of evolution. They are freshly infused with new ideas. Uranus is in Aries, about to leave this sign March 6, so this is their last connection of this type in these signs for 84 years! It’s important they finish up work that remains, secure it to stay strong in times to come. Their next stop is sextile/trine Mars, the planet of Aries, now in Taurus, the sign Uranus will go into! Mars is clearing the path for Uranus’s arrival. Mars is more steady in Taurus, and Uranus will be too. Both are freedom loving, independent, shakers and movers! Uranus is electric, sizzles. Mars is fiery spirited, a leader of note! There will be many coming land and property changes that need tending to. This is a beginning of more awareness, asking questions, problem solving in behalf of earth changes preparedness. Take notes. See more about Uranus into Taurus

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs!

The rest of the Full Moon planets are linked from 15° to 22°. Venus is at 18 Capricorn between Saturn and 22 Capricorn Pluto. She and Pluto are at important degrees. Venus is AT the Ecliptic degree Pluto was at back in October. She softens the connection between them now that will be their conjunction Jan 12, 2020. She gives value to the connections with June this year and the Nov 11 (eleven, eleven) Transit of Mercury! Venus shows us purpose that is worth working for, that needs guarding. In Capricorn it is anywhere from rings with diamonds to properties to spiritual law. It is our loving responsibilities we dedicate our lives to and doing work that suits our Soul. She gives Saturn cause to reaffirm meaningful commitments. She inspires Pluto to apply resources to long term sustainable efforts for our futures and the futures of our children. She wants him to see true, let go of fear and greed. It’s a high form of making love. They are conjunct Feb 22. Venus came up close to Saturn Feb 15, conjuncted him the 18th in Pacific time, and will connect him with Pluto through the 23rd/24th, 9 days. Pay attention, think it over, say Yes to a trial period. For some there will be practical financial blessings and worthy life work decisions.

Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, the degree where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Saturn, Venus and Pluto now are in harmony with Neptune and Mercury at 15/16 Pisces! Capricorn and Pisces are both dedicated signs but in entirely different ways. Capricorn wants to build good old fashioned linear results. Pisces has psychic insights, dreams and visions. No straight lines or squares for them! But Capricorn loves their timesaving ideas. Who cares if they come from nowhere, out of the blue?! Pisces loves ideas being put to use, especially when they help others. Neptune is right there in his own sign, the old Spirit Master. Mercury puts it all into words, puts a little logic with the magic! There are some terrific opportunities that may be just what we have been waiting for.

Mercury just conjuncted Neptune the 18th, the day before the Full Moon! It’s an important conjunction because it is the lead aspect of the Pisces Mercury Retrograde cycle and Neptune is the Pisces planet! It is the first of 3 in the retrograde cycle that starts that day! While retrograde, Mercury will conjunct Neptune March 24, just before Mercury goes into his 8 day station (stand still). Mercury goes direct (forward) on March 28, then makes the third/final conjunction with Neptune April 2 Pacific time. Mercury is so curious about the ‘unseen.’ Mercury himself is quite visual, so Pisces and Neptune are like an immersion experience for him. He uses his senses more. He wants to put it into words in some way so others can see it too! He talks with Neptune and watches for reactions, nuances. Neptune’s visions are important, not to be lost in dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception. See more about the Retrograde!

Jupiter squared Neptune Jan 13, opened a few channels and increased the opening to the mystical world. Some truths were absorbed never to be seen again, others were brought forward under scrutiny. Others yet were scandal, gossip, lies, libel, perjury – some exposed, possibly remedied, some obscured and not fixable. There was confusion, yet veils were parted that some larger truths could be revealed. Now, Mercury squares Jupiter and is puttering around surreptitiously, perhaps quite silently, somewhat invisibly, trying to sort some of that out. Is it logic or wishful thinking? A little bit of both? We’ll know a bit more after the 22nd.

Mercury is also sextiling Saturn, Venus and Pluto! That’s more realistic, doable. Saturn has a lot of historical facts in the archives. If you are allowed access… With Venus it depends on who she knows and what she wants. Be careful not to jeopardize her. She will be as helpful as she can. Pluto has the dirt and the big money. There are hidden motives, so though it looks juicy, don’t step into a pit you can’t get out of. Have some backup and a backup plan. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes. Could be some interesting news Friday the 22nd, maybe the 23rd.  

Secure the ground gained through these important 2018 to 2020 events!   
Be strong and steady as she goes!

Pisces New Moon! 

Wednesday March 6 at 8:04 AM Pacific, 15 Pisces 47 

Uranus into Taurus! Neptune Soul Searching, Pisces Mercury Retrograde Queries & Quandaries. My stars!

Pisces New Moon 2019 Black Sea Milky Way

We’re close to beginning of the Milky Way season, when the thick strip of stars is most visible across the night sky. The season runs from April through September. Photo: Jasmine_K/Shutterstock 

2 New beginnings! Today Uranus changes signs into Taurus! It’s an 84 year Cycle! And the New Moon in Pisces is in the last sign of the zodiac holding new visions for our futures! Yesterday Mercury turned Retrograde (Rx) at the most mature degree, the last degree of the entire zodiac, 29 Pisces! It is steady in station for another 3 to 4 days. When Mercury changes direction, it appears to be exactly in the same degree for 8 days! As Uranus, the planet of change – evolution, changes signs, Mercury pays vigilant attention to the nuances of what it all means. It sanctifies the past, glides along the gateway, watches and is immersed in the passage of time, captures a vision in motion, puts it in the indelible notebook of time. For eight days it focuses on the change from Aries to Taurus. 

Taurus has been waiting for the new guest. Uranus is the planet of Humanity, Freedom, Friends. It is the electric grid of our connections. It rules thunder, lightning and earthquakes! Taurus is Earth herself, the fertile fields, our very own bodies. Ruled by Venus she holds our Grace, loving kindness to plants, animals and each other. Taurus takes her time, ruminates on life, seeks peace among the brethren. Taurus is known for patience. What Taurus sees as valuable, she tries to anchor and stabilize. Taurus is magnetic and attractive, so as things happen fast she turns on the charm. With little effort, things swing her way. 

Moon and Sun are sharing Light with Neptune, Pisces’s planet! New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is restored. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. In Pisces she might bring him a mild fish like sake steamed halibut, steamed veggies topped with a light lemon butter sauce, juicy fruits like peaches and plums, or a drippy melon. She knows when his Light looks a little dull and listens gently to his secrets.

As they all move forward, March 28 Mercury Retrograde will be back at 16 Pisces, where Neptune is now at the New Moon, and Mercury was at the Feb 19 Full Moon! 1) Mercury first conjuncted Neptune Feb 18, the day the Sun went into Pisces, the day before the Full Snow Supermoon! That conjunction is important because it was the lead aspect to the Pisces Mercury Retrograde cycle and Neptune is the Pisces planet! 2) While Retrograde, Mercury will conjunct Neptune March 24, just before Mercury goes into his 8 day station (stand still). 3) He goes direct (forward) on March 28, then makes the third/final conjunction with Neptune April 2 Pacific time. Mercury and Neptune are related to very different signs. Mercury’s 2 signs are Gemini and Virgo, both logical. Gemini is interested in anything that moves. Virgo wants to put it to work in the right place! Neptune in Pisces is ungovernable, exists in consciousness, the dream time. Mercury would love to extract the amazing insights from that dimension and tell their story. Mercury in Pisces is a bit psychic himself, so is the perfect instrument to comprehend the magic being spoken! See more about the Pisces Mercury Retrograde!

The Moon and Sun are sextile Saturn in hardcore realistic Capricorn. He in turn is conjunct Pluto, and neither wants any nonsense. If you can’t see it and feel it, and it doesn’t make money, harrumph! Yet, they have both seen things that don’t make sense but work anyway. They do listen, even if from the sidelines checking things out. Sun brightens the passage, is creative from heart and Soul. There is a quality of confidence and sincerity. Moon can be so emotional, but then why?! Is it that important, so all encompassing? We know she cares. What’s her thread back to where it all began? As they say, ‘Smart like a fox.’ Pluto gets interested in possible potential. He loves a good mystery, and dagnabit, he likes to heal the causal elements. Neptune is unpinnable and Capricorn just can’t stand that. Stand still, dammit! I want to see and understand. So the opportunities can happen. Earthy Cap will grab those misty Neptune hints, and find a way to bring a remarkable vision into existence, possibly saving many lives!

And if that isn’t enough, Mars is the engine right behind them in strong-as-a-bull Taurus pushing the project forward, not taking no for an answer, he’ll find a way! He trines Saturn the dedicated Builder. Both are in earth signs following the laws of nature. Mars is advocating for an organic fresh food supply that you might grow yourself! Taurus wants good and green, no toxic water or chemical pesticides. Saturn wants sustainable shelter, work that brings satisfaction, excellence and honor. Taurus might like the sprawling range or farmland while Saturn might build elder communities of tiny homes or homelike travel vehicles. One way or the other, Mars is itchy to get things moving by March 14 and Saturn sees there is no time to lose. 

There’s a little hitch coming up with Sun and Moon square Jupiter. Jupiter usually is the one wanting the most, and this time he’s even in his own sign! And he thinks he’s right. But Pisces sees even a greater need and Jupiter may feel a little push to up the ante on his planning. It might be a subtle confrontation, but there will be some rumblings. Sun makes the square the 13th. Certain issues may disappear from the table, others may come to light. Mercury is retrograde. Expect a few odd twists. 

Degree wise, for now, Venus is standing on her own in Aquarius. She holds a unique position however, because she is what is called Mutual Reception with Uranus in Taurus. They are in each other’s signs! Old time astrologers thought part of what that meant was they functioned in each other’s places as well as their own! So that means Uranus could be read at 5 Aquarius in his own sign! And Venus could be read at 0 Taurus newly in her own sign! His new beginning is her new beginning. She adds beauty to this grand fresh start! As she stands, she has many friends, a couple of geniuses, some ‘crazy’ people, and all of humanity on her mind at various times. Some of the things she wants are way before their time. Soon she will square Mars and may make some outrageous requests. He in Taurus may lift his eyebrows. No matter how she pouts, she may not be able to move him. He may be a little more conservative in Taurus and she’s a little far out for his taste. She will have to talk to his own natural desires to get him to help. Otherwise, best to let go and move on. To complicate it, each is good looking in their own way, and could be attracted, but a connection is probably a flash in the pan.

3 STARS! The same stars as last month’s New Moon, but making different links! The New Moon is trine the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Mars is about to sextile Sirius. Both of these are classically favorable connections. Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! 

Moon, Sun and Neptune are sextile Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn. Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. Pisces is all about art and music! This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.  

Again, not only is the dog involved, but so is the hunter himself! The New Moon and Neptune are square Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. Squares bring challenges, so I’m thinking have a little caution. About Rigel and the Sun, Robson says: Bold, courageous, insolent, unruly temper, hasty actions, bloodshed, many enemies, great good fortune, military success. Shall we run or stay? Elsbeth Ebertin noted a connection of Rigel to the Sun and Moon, in charts of several world record pilots, leading to sudden difficulties in the carrying out of planned enterprises resulting in failures to reach the set target. Neptune/Pisces can be vagaries…

As I said in the Full Moon section above, an impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time. 

At this New Moon Saturn now stands at 18 degrees Capricorn conjunct the Ecliptic point! If you made notes back then, review them, or check your appt book to see what was important then. Compare that with what you have gotten done since then and revise your goals accordingly. 18 Cap is midpoint sextile between the June Neptune and Nov Transit of Mercury positions. These connections are noted as harmonious with potential opportunities! Expand your plans.

I repeat: Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, the degree where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Gather your threads, be clear in our greater purpose, use your instinct.

Full Harvest Moon!

Monday September 24 at 7:52 PM Pacific, 2 Aries/Libra 0

Early degrees emphasis, TWO T Squares, Chiron Aries back to Pisces!

Libra Aries 2018 Full Harvest Moon Sunshine Skyway Bridge Tampa Bay FL

Full Harvest Moon shining over Tampa Bay’s 4.1 miles long Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Lovely image by award-winning freelance photographer Jim Sykes. 

Bridges are symbolic of Libra’s purpose, the connections of opposites. Full Moons are the same, specific to the link between Mother Moon and Father Sun. Libra’s Fall Equinox season change 2 days ago is the same. Libra links the fall quarter of the year, and all situations involving from summer, ‘as above,’ to ‘so below’ as we go into the shorter days, longer nights of the darker deeper time of year. Sometimes only Spirit is our escort; other times we go arm in arm, equals meeting the inner workings of our beings. One way or another, we all go. It’s a collective experience we have each year. Some have initial fears of the dark. In time confidence is gained, we enjoy this mysterious dimension, become to love its qualities. In the daytime we are headed toward intense and exhilarating sports in the windblown crisp clear-your-head cooler air!

Only 12 days ago we had the Jupiter sextile Pluto, the far, far from the Sun planet of dark! Jupiter is known for seeing the bright side of things and since Pluto is known for his powerful funds, Jupiter made some lucky deals and raised generous funds for benevolent projects and causes! 2 days ago the Sun went into Libra. Not only did we change seasons, but signs as well! Less Virgo labor now, more social connections, emphasis on collaboration. What was one person’s job has now become an active team of contributors! The result is more whole, more sophisticated, much more than the original intention!These and the Full Moon are all while Chiron is trying on it’s new speed in Aries, pushing for new beginnings, testing new ways of healing, new arrangements in partnerships and doing business!

Tomorrow, Sep 25, Chiron returns to Pisces for a reminder of why we are doing these new things, why they are required next. We go back for another look at where we have failed, the consequences. We are touched with compassion for the suffering of all manner of addictions – food, drugs, to relationships, even at times our so called ‘devotion’ to a spiritual Path. We will get deeper into true spiritual bonds that hold us dear to sacred places and principles we believe in. The Full Moon opens the gates between us, each other and different dimensions. Step back that we may go more powerfully forward later. Maybe we left someone behind, need to say the farewell that wasn’t possible before, or they are ready now and we collect them. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron goes forward into Aries for the next 9 years. At that point it will be 51 years before it gets back into Pisces again. Really seek Chiron’s meaning while it is in Pisces. This is it.

LIBRA & ARIES

While the Libra Sun is shining, Mother Moon is traveling opposite in fiery Aries. She, in all her feminine glory, is standing strongly, leading the way! She feels passionate about independence, woman power, taking the steps that make a difference for our children, our family, the work we do daily because that’s life, the skills we take forward to the next level. She doesn’t hesitate if someone is in trouble or a fire needs putting out! She’s 100% intuitive, swift and to the point!

Libra Sun doesn’t hesitate to introduce himself. He might like to help you, or live the advantage of your expertise. He would like to get to know you and connect you further to the right people and places. He likes to equalize situations, understand the merits of every person involved. Sun considers all the facets at present, the possibilities. There are times when no conclusion is possible. It’s either too late or too early. Compared with Aries, he is reminded there are times you simply must take some action, you’ll never please everyone. Yet he also knows there really are times to wait it out, poised. Aries learns there are times to let it go for now. They can really help each other. We’re making very fine jewelry here. Sometimes you turn up the heat; other times you turn it down and let things gel.

TEN factors make very CLOSE ASPECTS in the Full Moon Chart!

From zero to 8 degrees! 
0 Chiron Retrograde
1 Moon, Uranus, Lilith
2 Sun, Saturn
3 Mars
4 Moon’s North Node always retrograde in general motion
5 Mercury
8 Venus

CARDINAL T Square

Moon is with Chiron kickin’ up the dust in Aries. Let’s get this healing gig on the road! People need it NOW! Moon and Chiron are semisextile Uranus in Taurus, itchy to get going, make changes, but they are blocked by the square with Father Time Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He’s asking for papers and proof, tests, rules & regs. Moon and Chiron would love to just push him aside, and might do, but there would be consequences that might make a longer delay later. Sigh. Uranus in Taurus, is close in trine with Saturn, has been gently nudging him, so a shift is soon. Saturn slows us down just enough to have the time we need to think more clearly and do it even better after all!

Sun and Mercury have been running into the Saturn bricks too! Saturn thinks of Libra as ‘fluffy,’ not serious enough to be considered. Yet, Libra has Saturn’s eye, since those goods sell better when they are Libra finessed and attractive too, bringing more sales. Saturn is the T point man, so they all have to get his approval before it’s a go. Once they do, Mercury is already ahead! The evening before he trined, consulted with Mars, who is always on the leading edge, and has been excited, expecting things to pop! Mercury has the word, and soon as, is hoofing it outta here to give the good news, gather the local troops! Good chance you signed some papers in the last six days.

Saturn is no dummy! He can just feel all the energy around him and knows better than to over delay and miss the magic moments. He can think pretty fast on his feet when a lot is at stake. Cardinal signs like action, and this scenario just can’t be stopped for long!

Moon and Chiron are sextile Lilith and Mars in Aquarius, the sign of change! Again, when Saturn’s requirements are satisfied, Mars and Lilith will offer an entire group of independent women and leaders in behalf of our efforts! This combo can sweep us ALL off our feet! Hang on!

And Moon and Chiron trine the Moon’s North node, sweetly links the Cardinal squares with the Fixed squares! Moon never lets sleeping dogs lie, and quite more so in Aries! She and Chiron are acting like power boosters. Trine her own North Node bodes well for the new beginnings she hopes for. The North Node swings the balance to equalize the South Node in Aquarius, her Past. In Leo it’s less for Aquarian friends and collaborators; it’s more for what’s in your own heart’s light now.

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

Lilith, woman of power, in Aquarius, the changemaker sign, is at the root at 1 degree! She squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. She won’t be able to move him entirely, because he, though new in Taurus, his new job is to test for organic truth and anchor that in Taurus. What we had always wanted is now couched in new times, so it has to prove itself in current tense. Uranus is square the fixed sign Moon’s Nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars and Lilith are at the Aquarian South Node, powers of the Past called upon, in this case for chaos! Yet they have a rather odd resonance of invincibility. They want change, and it WILL happen! Though Mars and Lilith are independents, when they call the other independents together they are a force to be reckoned with. The Nodes, in turn, square Venus in Scorpio, but they are always retrograde and are moving away from her. Venus squared Mars way back on the 8th and they didn’t agree. Now she has moved past him. Mercury will make a semisextile with Venus, but it’s not a major aspect. Venus may have memories, but is not likely much interested any more. By numbers we have a grand square. By active planetary motion we really have another T Square. 

Fixed signs are meant to stabilize, anchor, focus and keep our attention on what’s at hand. But two of these signs Aquarius and Scorpio want significant change. Aquarius wants to mend planetary ways, Scorpio wants to transform you body and Soul so you can do the job AQ wants!

Uranus is at the point of the fixed T; Saturn is the point of the Cardinal T! Saturn is the venerable traditional conservative in charge, while Uranus is leading edge technology, often ahead of its times, the Futurist, Rebel with many causes! Interesting that Saturn is leading the Cardinal signs that want action now, yet he is a perfect leader to keep them all corralled so they don’t make mistakes and waste time! Ironically, Uranus, the ChangeMaker, is in charge of the fixed signs that are meant to stabilize us!

The rest of the planets….

Jupiter and Pluto finished their last sextile the 12th. So much potential healing ability was given to be used during these further planetary transitions. See more

Essentially, Venus, and Neptune in his own sign Pisces, stand alone. Neptune is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time. Venus will NOT trine Neptune until Winter Solstice, Dec 21! She retrogrades at 10 Scorpio 50 on Oct 5, already slowing way down to make the Rx station. She stands still for many days at that turn.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and getting close to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

This Harvest Moon has a lot of close knit interaction and wants a lot of change! For those of you who have 0 to 8 degree factors in your charts, it is likely to be an intense few days, very involved with what’s at hand, emphasizing heightened person to person interactions.

New Moon!

Monday October 8 at 8:47 PM Pacific, 15 Libra 48

Square Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Retrograde, Fixed Star Rigel – Again!

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Libra, the sign of relationships. They are looking for equality, each offering vastly different qualities. Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since all the other planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

They are challenged by their square to Pluto! He is most certainly in the glow of the Sun’s Path around Earth, the Ecliptic. At this point he will conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, in only 22 DAYS! He may be so absorbed he hardly notices Sun/Moon. He is small, yet he is a powerful Being, and now he’s even being lighted by the most major Light we know! His power would seem beyond formidable, endless. He could be healer, he could be Evil personified. He’s in Capricorn, either builder or crusher. Libra better tread very carefully. This is not a ‘social event’ where you can just walk out the door with no consequences. Pluto knows your intent just about any day. With his powers amplified, you better go in with a clean heart. If you pass his tests, he will help you, build an awesome ‘house’ for you whether it is healing your body or building the Temple. If you don’t pass his tests, he will heal you so you can. If it is not the right time, he will know that too. If the idea is glamorous but false, it will be replaced or vaporized. You will be transformed, like it or not, one way or another!

Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place Pluto is at. There is an alliance factor. Sun is charging Pluto to the core. Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame. So, it may come to pass the Sun and Moon have their audience. Libra is just the ticket, an ace in delicate situations, reading every nuance, able to step forward or backup quickly as needed. It’s an intricate dance that can have extraordinary results. Respect is everything for Libra’s sometimes nervous subtle perceptions, Pluto’s well protected unspoken fears, Capricorn’s standing, reputation. All kinds of poise will be needed for this dance.

Sun and Moon just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. They are more empathetic. Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. He has freshly transferred some of this to them so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Mercury, also in Libra, is inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, tapping his wellspring of healing knowledge. Mercury’s quick ability may make all the difference. Just a few well placed words at a tense moment, can release the impasse, everyone takes a breath. Mercury is also out-of-sign opposite Uranus. Mercury is skilled at ‘interpreting’ his own way, in this case taking a Uranian odd idea but presenting it as plausibly sensible, catching everyone’s attention. All of a sudden everyone is calm. Oh, that’s what he meant. I see.

Venus is now retrograde and going ‘backward’ is squaring Mars! She’s too nice, and he isn’t. In Scorpio she might not say anything at all, but got what was going on behind the scenes. Mars in Aquarius is just itching to do something shocking. He might be rude or sexually inappropriate. Venus in Scorpio is hard to ruffle, but if he crosses the line, and Venus cuts loose, he may wish he hadn’t, and other people will be on her side. No excuse for her to be mean though. There could be a price connected to that caper. Libra is lawsuits. If things go the other way, Mars may shock Venus into coming out and taking a powerful stand! He could find her helping him present his inspiring project to clients who see the value she sees in it. She could do some fundraising for him if they get past their differences. Just get all the credit ratings, details and facts. See more about Venus Rx!

Mixed Grand Square! The early degrees are again involved, but not near as much as at the Full Harvest Moon. With Uranus retrograde and Saturn moving forward, they are no longer actively trining. The Moon’s Nodes are retrograding to square Uranus though. The Aquarius/Leo axis will find itself being shifted merely by being in Uranus’s company. In Taurus he has subtle electricity. He will have them consider practical changes. The South Node in Aquarius doesn’t like tampering with his genius, yet there is the planet of genius challenging him! The South Node in Aquarius is our past we hang onto, and Uranus is the ChangeMaker evolutionary futurist! What were genius ideas long ago need an update! Leo likes a good show, so is more likely to play but he is the Pet, likes his comforts. At the North Node he is looking for improvements. Taurus wants it to be a safe change that  will bring more comfort if possible, less indulgence at the expense of Earth. Mercury in late Libra can negotiate among them at this point, but when he goes into Scorpio the next day, he may have his own agenda. He may not even want to talk about it, and is stubborn if he does. Gotta show him the value and if it will make money to make him move. Or he may find himself shaking the bushes for funding for the biggest project he has ever worked on!

Fixed Star Rigel! Last month the New Moon at 17 Virgo squared, challenged Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! THIS MONTH, the New Moon at 15 Libra 48 charmingly trines Rigel! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel proudly champions Libra’s handkerchief into battle and comes back with it to return it to his fair one! She is inspired by his magnificent behavior and vows to live her life more fully herself. They make quite the team!

IN THE BACKGROUND

Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1, only that once! They aren’t quite close enough just yet for action, but see more to get ready for it. It is part of the 10 day sequence of aspects started when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Libra lives the crucial function of connecting us, negotiating with dignity and respect, rebalancing our relationships, securing vital alliances. It is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Pluto Conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at His South Node!

Pluto Ecliptic South Node Line of Nodes Diagram Capricorn

The Line of Nodes is the intersection between the orbital plane of Pluto (purple) and that of Earth (white). Because Pluto’s orbit is significantly inclined relative to the ecliptic plane, node crossings are rare, and because Pluto’s orbit is eccentric, they occur in 87 and 161 year intervals. Credit: Anne Verbiscer

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic, north to south, at South Node, at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! That’s a stunner 248 year event few ever experience! Last time it crossed south to north September 4, 1930 – NASA says it was 1931. 1930 was when Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto! And it was in the time of the US Great Depression. Pluto is known for extremes and financial events. It will take 161 years to reach its North Node, 2179.

The last time it crossed north to south, like it is now, was July 2, 1770, the day after Comet Lexell passed the closest to Earth than any other comet in recorded history!

The Line of Nodes is the intersection of the plane of the Earth’s orbit and a planet’s orbit. If the planet is near one of these intersection points at the time of opposition, they were mid 2016, it is in near-perfect alignment with the Earth and Sun.

Astronomer Anne Verbiscer asks did the fact that objects tend to be brighter, sometimes exceptionally so when they are near opposition, also increase Tombaugh’s chances of making his famous discovery? She explains that Pluto was definitely brighter at that time due to the “opposition effect.” Sometimes it is a dramatic increase in reflected sunlight that occurs when a planet, moon, asteroid or comet is at opposition.

Opposition is every year when planets orbiting the sun beyond Earth’s orbit reach what astronomers call “opposition,” when they appear in the sky at the position opposite that of the sun. See more!

Ecliptic Sun's Path Ring of FireA Blip on the Ring of Fire!

Per Wiki ‘The ecliptic is the circular path on the celestial sphere that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year.’ The term also refers to the plane of this path, which is coplanar with Earth’s orbit around the Sun. That’s why Pluto crossing the Ecliptic is so strongly linked with Earth! They are all lined up! Since Earth tilts, they would be even more lined up if this happened at one of the Equinoxes!

Oct 30, tiny yet powerful Pluto will be at 18 Capricorn 58, his South Node, descending! In this context, Pluto is entering his own Underworld for the next 161 years. This downunderness is a natural place for Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. It thrives in deep environs, places that could be dangerous, that challenge you to the core. They want to clean up messes, know what makes things tick, what to do at the thresholds of life and death. They carry the midwife’s basket and comfortably work at Hospice. They are pros at Wall Street and on the Market. They see the struggles, failures and successes and try their hand at it all too. Stealth and Wealth.

The Ecliptic doesn’t move; Pluto is the one that is moving, relative to it. Pluto is going to be immersed in the Trail of Light. From flaws to profound keen Healer, all is revealed. Pluto will stand in the Path of the Heart of Light, bathing in the greatest battery, Light charger, possible. What doesn’t work – poor health, a suffering or mean attitude, useless compulsions – may be burned away, offered up and released to the Solar winds. What’s left, what does work may stand clearly and be enhanced like a pure energy.

Relationships may be profoundly adjusted. More love, more sharing, more standing together for their life’s causes. They may keep a low profile, privacy a strong tool, but you will sense their combined formidable power. If it is time to dissolve, may it be done with dignity and respect.

If any planet can do it, Pluto can! The ability to transform, Dark to Light, is his profound business. The Phoenix rises from its own ashes. You may hardly recognize him when you see him next. Pluto is in Capricorn now. Pluto is destruction, clearing obstacles, detoxing, cleansing, resurrection! Capricorn is the builder, renovation. Together they restore and enhance with the best materials and devices current times have to offer! Sustainably. Capricorn is the Father, dedicated, responsible, condensing power, compounding the interest! Saturn is in Capricorn, his own sign, too, so these will be truly productive times for those who put in the effort. Intuition will be strong, work will be focused right at the critical junctures.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest lunar event by degree of 2018 preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

Capricorn has intentions and Pluto can be obsessed, together unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

Mars and Mercury are both Retrograde in our Solar Eclipse chart! They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway, or if you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! LightKeepers are needed.

Oct 30 the SUN will be at 7 Scorpio 30 along the Ecliptic. Scorpio is Pluto’s Sign! The Sun is ON! It’s a merger of Dark and Light, both valuable in their own way. Through this kindred energy, Pluto, on the Sun’s circle, will have more courage and ability to be resonant because Light isn’t his natural element. Take some time that day to feel the effects of Light on Light, Light on Dark.

Will Pluto leave its scent as it crosses through this energy plane/portal? It must! Will we feel it when the Sun conjuncts the Oct 30 Capricorn point Jan 9, 2019, and when Sun next makes his annual conjunction with Pluto two days later Jan 11, 2019 at 20 Capricorn 56? And what about Oct 30, 2019?! Let’s sit with it and see what we get! Pluto moves only 3 degrees a year, slowly. This degree is still very close. Take some time, these important dates, to feel what Pluto, Sun, and Scorpio are channeling to us. Light itself may need cleansing, recharging. The Dark may need purifying so it may function cleanly to be a protective shield or be a safe place to have deep thought and alternate perception. Dawn and Dusk become more special, times of blending their forces.

There are longer term aspect events as well! If you are strongly affected by the Pluto/Ecliptic, note these dates on your calendar!

  • First is the uncommon Nov 11 2019 Transit of Mercury at 18 Scorpio 56! It is six minutes (of space) conjunct Jupiter’s sextile Pluto position Sep 12, 2018 at 18 SC 50, the closest aspect preceding Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Transit is only two minutes of exact sextile to the Pluto/Ecliptic point at 18 Cap 58! See more below!
  • As Saturn travels its own sign Capricorn, along with Pluto, it makes three important connections. June 18, 2019, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 43. Dec 10, 2019 it conjuncts the 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic position! January 12, 2020 it conjuncts PLUTO at 22 Capricorn 46, on average a 34 year event!
  • Last, Jupiter squares Neptune June 16 2019, two days before Saturn sextiles it from 18 Capricorn 43. Jupiter exactly conjuncts the Pluto/Ecliptic position in Capricorn on Feb 26, 2020! It then moves on to conjunct Pluto three times during 2020. In addition, Oct 12, 2020, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 45!

This #18 now holds fascination! Number One is Initiation, action, leadership, being first! 8 is the Infinity number. Comprised of two circles touching, it is thought of as a ‘figure’ 8. For some of us it is the ultimate dynamic of the Möbius loop. It irrevocably bonds our souls equally yet we are discreetly different. We are in a fusion of action, each compellingly and continuously involving the other with every breath! Laying on its side, perhaps 8 is the power of two as one, we ‘know’ each other intimately forever, maybe good and evil. Vertically, it can symbolize the always day and night sequence, or as above, so below. One and eight add to Nine, in numerology, the completion. By definition nine has the qualities of all the numbers, represents spirituality, mystical knowledge, even thought of as a sacred number… The symbolic calling here is profound. Eighteen might be thought of as the Initiation of Union.

Yes, Oct 30 is months away (this written Feb 16, 2018), but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

Many astrologers think this is a several years long event. I agree. You don’t wake up that day and say, wow, I can feel Pluto at the Ecliptic and its over! It’s a process, a sense of it, a learning how to transform Dark to Light, merge Dark and Light work with those mediums. Not a 5 minute affair. You need to practice in all kinds of circumstances, become seasoned. It’s not just for yourself but to be capable to be that healer/teacher for others as well.

The Fixed Star Deneb is at 19 Capricorn 48 in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan! It is less than 1 degree of Pluto’s South Node. Swans are the sweeties! Grace, beauty. The Swan symbolizes to make sound, to take flight! Deneb is one of the three stars of the huge Summer Triangle in the sky! Deneb links with Lyra in Lyre the Harp, beautiful etheric music, and Altair in another bird constellation, Aquila, the fierce bird of prey, the Eagle! Raise your vision. Let go of old weight, spiritual and otherwise, that no longer serves; fly your good powers clean and well. Use your keen perception to heal and serve right on target. Make beauty, beautiful sound, take flight, rise above!

Here is another look at the immediate cosmic schedule! Pluto at the Ecliptic starts a TEN day sequence of aspects to Jupiter changing into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event!

Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! A look into the Underworld, our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

To add a little spice to the trail, Venus Retrograde hostesses this intense 10 day sequence! She is retrograde until Nov 16, the same day Mercury retrogrades! What she reverses and modifies, Mercury will be thinking and communicating about. We will collectively be revising many of our values, our sense of beauty, what we feel good about in ourselves, who we want to spend our precious time with and why. Our wants will be changing and the ways we go about getting our needs met will change.

Venus is at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Scorpio Nov 7 New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

It is while within that Taurus preview that Uranus hosts Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! In Taurus, the most stable of the Earth signs, the Pluto/Ecliptic transmissions are grounded and stabilized. Venus Rx, on the spot, is doing her best to shift what she can while the excitement is happening. It’s her best chance. Taurus is one of her signs, so they have a certain understanding. He recognizes her excellent assessments, and gives them priority.

You see how intricate and several-years extensive this complex of events is! It will change us as the days and years go by. Some will be so apparent; some will be so subtle.

Pluto will bring more Light than ever thought possible! Light on Light, Light in the Dark! Jupiter with Chiron further opens the gates of healing and teaching in water signs Scorpio and Pisces. Uranus back in Aries restores unions of leaders of leaders! We WILL proceed. The Scorpio New Moon finds the deepest re-solutions. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus finds an alternate Path to skirt the blocks, open new territory. PathFinder Jupiter in Sagittarius knows where to go! Keeps the Faith.

Those of you with factors in your chart from 5 to 10 degrees (Oct 30 Sun’s degree at the Ecliptic), especially in Scorpio or 16 to 21 degrees (Oct 30 Pluto at the Ecliptic degree), especially in Capricorn, will have the most potent contact. Take some time out, alone or in the power of a Circle, to receive. The rest of us are counting on you to give us the keys we need to carry that Light forward for a long time to come. I imagine it may take some time to put it into perfect words and working order. That’s ok, but don’t take too long, the planet needs the info soonest. Even if you are awkward at first, some will understand immediately. They too will be guided, but we need you to get us started! Plant those StarSeeds where they will count!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving Unfinished that lies in darkness, that when raised up releases us from the chains of eternal suffering.

Anne Verbiscer says ‘We won’t know just how bright Pluto can get until 2018, but you can be sure we will be watching to find out!’ There won’t be another crossing until December 11, 2178!


This Pluto encounter will be indelibly memorable to those whose charts are linked to it. With such events it can take years to understand their full meaning. But this one has some help! Nov 11, eleven, eleven, 2019 is the TRANSIT OF MERCURY! Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER for our current PLUTO CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! This event is at 18 Capricorn 58. The Transit is at 18 Scorpio 56, only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observes this 2018 event and in 2019 will be at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Why are we not surprised?! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.

Mercury Retrograde Taurus while Mars Retrograde 2016 Road Sign S Curve

June 20, 2016 note: Mars continues Retrograde until June 29, three days after Jupiter trines Pluto. Some energies won’t be released until Mars has gone forward a few days after the 29th.

Mars started the first of its three Retrograde phases on Feb 18! Mars type things started since then until the retrograde April 17 will be reviewed during his retrograde April 17 to June 29. The third phase starts June 29, when Mars directs – moves forward again, until the finish August 22. Mars moves about twice as slow as Mercury, taking 2 years to circle Earth, while Mercury goes with the Sun once a year. So the Mars Rx period is longer, will be 2 months, 12 days!

The first pass is new ground. The reverse period, the Retrograde, things are covered in reverse order, reviewed, changed. The third pass is when the answers fall into place, mature decisions are made, last chances for finetuning course corrections.

The retrograde will span from 8 Sagittarius to 23 Scorpio.

Sex & Love

In Scorpio a fervent time, powerfully potent. Scorpio will generally love you forever, but Mars is less patient. For your own goodness they will prod you to take better care of yourself, mend relationships with other. It can be an obsessive combination, and you may have to take serious measures to depart if they get mean. If a new, fresh love, it may rock your socks, be tantric fusion! Just be careful about starting your new intimacy during the retrograde period, especially if it is an affair on one or both of your parts. There are likely to be sad consequences. If you are single be super careful. If with your very own Honey, what a great time to try out some new experiences! If you break up during the Rx, you are likely to get back together, so if you are serious about it, wait until Mars goes direct, then if you still want to, make your move. Be gentle and kind as possible in all circumstances.

In Sagittarius a runaway adventure! A high % of love ’em and leave ’em, but sometimes so worth the hit and run! Take a vacation with your Sweetie, just don’t take your most valuable luggage during the retrograde. Things get lost, so valuables stay with you on the flight. This wonderful exploration could be to a meaningful sacred site, an altar, to see the oracle about your love life, or off to a school or a visit with a teacher. Don’t believe everything you see or hear, or promises made. Evolution is the always change, and trumps any human thinking. What we thought we wanted changes with the perspective of time and circumstance, and though at first we are a bit undone, in the long term things are better!

Health & Healing

In Scorpio This is one of Scorpio’s prime businesses. They are super therapists whether it is mind or body. They have powerful mojo. If you find the healer uses too much force or intimidation for you, stop the program. If you had a super healer it may be time to return for another round. Good healers always know more about you than you do. They have the intuition, skills, experience that can do the best for you. From midwife to Hospice, let these Beings be there for you. Scorpio specially has to do with our intestines and sexual organs. Less food that over taxes our system. Food and exercise that keeps our body at optimum. Take good care of yourself. It’s another way of loving others.

In Sagittarius Sometimes we forget to play. Our Spirit needs relief from serious concerns. Do some things you forgot you love to do. Literally get away. You and your body forget you had aches and pains. If you are about to publish, perhaps immersing yourself in your text or images will take your mind elsewhere. Or go see a healer that has inspired you or the good people you trust, possibly has helped you before. Try something new. Be with the Truth. If you have been procrastinating, in denial, get with a strong friend, talk about what you are scared of, make your plan, take it a step at a time, have your friend be with you to help you get started. We all need help at times. You would do it for them. Sag is hips, thighs, sciatic nerve. These are what let us propel us through our lives. Be ready to happily make adjustments to your exercise, physical therapy programs. Together we can do this.

Career & Business

In Scorpio Financial relics will be summarily dismissed and replaced – not without resistance, but it will happen! Mars likes things done directly, right at the heart of the matter, with the least fuss. Let go of excess procedures, lighten the load, save time and money. Try some new ventures and keep tabs on things yourself, delegate when you find someone capable and trustworthy. Check on security matters frequently during the retrograde. Get proper lighting and make backups. Don’t be too disappointed if you don’t get the job or make the contact or partnership you expected, or the pay you hoped for. A better choice or deal may be in the offing after the retrograde. If you must have a review during this period, negotiate another after the retrograde. (See your astrologer for good dates!)

In Sagittarius Travelers will change course several times, planners be ready for revisions! What you teach may true one day, new info the next! You might reprint old texts, but do better to wait on your new publishing, a better title, a better cover to come. Caution about religious organizations. The management may change or they aren’t as suited as first thought. Your company may decide to go back to meeting at a previous place. Selecting your courses or place of continuing education will be more sure later on. Keep your options as open as possible.

Mars Retrograde Timeline

Feb 18 Mars started Phase 1

Mar 5 Mars into Sagittarius

Mar 19 Sun into Aries, Mars’ sign. Into Taurus April 19.
Mar 21 Mercury into Aries, Mars’ sign. Into Taurus April 5. From Mar 22 until April 19 there will be 3 planets in Aries! 

April 5 Venus into Aries, Mars’ sign. April 29 Taurus.
April 12 Venus in Aries trine Mars

April 17 Mars RETROGRADE 8 Sag to 23 Scorpio

April 28 Mercury RETROGRADE 23 to 14 Taurus DURING the Mars Rx! It’s a double retrograde!

May 9 2016 TRANSIT OF MERCURY Rx in Taurus, 7.5 hour ECLIPSE across the Sun, 8:12 AM Pacific at 19 Taurus 25! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The last planetary Solar Eclipse we had was Venus Retrograde in Gemini June 5, 2012. The last Mercury eclipse was Nov 8, 2006 at 16 Scorpio. The May Mercury eclipses are about half as frequent as November transits, but are bigger because Mercury is Aphelion, farthest from the sun. They occur at Mercury’s South Node. See More & the Chart!

May 22 Mercury DIRECT
May 22 The same day Mercury Directs, goes forward, Mars is at the Rx midpoint; Mars is always opposite the Sun at its Rx midpoint! This time the Sun is in Mercury’s sign Gemini at 1 Gemini/Sagittarius 47! Mars and Sun, two fiery planets will be facing off. The Sun is Light and rules the Heart, the sense of our core Self. Mars is Fire personified, lives for action! It is the candle flame of ignition when we need inspiration. It quickens our reaction time, is a spontaneous and cleverly innovative problem solver! It is the Seed of Spring, the Initiator, Leader! If you happen to be in the flock-of-lambs dept, not to worry, you will become a fine ram or ewe!

May 27 Mars Rx back into Scorpio

June 18  Mars Rx inconjunct Uranus  – 23 SC 51 Rx. Disturbances in the valence through July 13!
June 29
 MARS DIRECT at 23 Scorpio 3.9!

July 13 Mars direct inconjunct Uranus – 24 SC 25

Aug 2 Mars Sagittarius

Aug 10 Mercury starts Retrograde Phase 1 in Virgo

Aug 22 Mars 3rd phase finishes at 8 Sag, Sun into Virgo

Aug 30, eight days later, Mercury retrogrades in Virgo

23 DEGREES

Though Mercury starts its Retrograde at 23 Taurus, and Mars goes Direct (forward) at the opposite point, 23 Scorpio, they are never in opposition while both are retrograde due to the differences in their timing. But that 23 degree point becomes a sensitive point, since the degree positions when planets turn Retrograde or Direct, called a Station, are held for many days in the sky.

Feb 18 Mars already crossed 23 Scorpio
Apr 28 Mercury Rx at 23 Taurus
June  7 Mercury completes the Rx cycle at 23 Taurus
Jun 29 Mars Direct at 23 Scorpio

Passing it back and forth, who’s across the table, crossfire, differences, independence, separation, negotiation, complementary efforts, exciting joint advocacy, cooperation, will all be part of our considerations. Mercury is mind and communications. Mars is action inspired by Mercury’s inspired quick thinking – even in Taurus, or perhaps especially in Taurus, because Taurus has ruminated on matters, coming up with amazing common sense solutions, worthy of Mars’ actions! A retrograde in Taurus releases long held consciousness. Sensing and trusting fundamental value, Mars doesn’t hesitate to inaugurate a powerful trial in Scorpio, a cautious yet astute sign, to see if further sharing/teaching is feasible in Sagittarius.

More than concurrent retrogrades, the profound 7.5 hour TRANSIT OF MERCURY Rx Eclipse across the Sun, Mercury Direct at the Mars Rx midpoint opposite Sun in Gemini – Mercury’s sign, and the 23 degree connections, these two Retrogrades are powerful and specially linked.

Enjoy your hunt, the Quest, the depths and the heights, meeting new people!

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron
New Moon, First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron!
Monday February 22, 10:20 AM Pacific at 3 Virgo 34

Pisces Earth Moon Gaia Josephine Wall Prayer Surrender Gratitude Grace
Magical Beauty by Josephine Wall, birthdate unknown – May 1947

Pisces and Virgo are ever in humble grace and gratitude. Dreams and details run through their minds, Spirit sees their wholeness. There is a holy union of being on this Earth and being guided by greater Beings. True, there are times we feel bereft, forsaken, that things are impossible, but often there are also so many unexpected kindnesses and blessings. Full Moon miracles open our hearts to the immense possibilities our our consciousness.

Jupiter in Virgo, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries have been traveling together since 2015 and will continue to through 2017! See more about this magical mix! The triangle is tied together by the Pisces Full Moon and the March 8 Solar Eclipse!

The Virgo/Pisces Full Snow Moon is the day before the second Jupiter opposite Chiron.

The Pisces New Moon, first Solar Eclipse of 2016, is two days after the second Jupiter inconjunct Uranus.

The Full Moon Sun and Moon are conjunct and opposition Neptune, and they, the North and South nodes, and the Jupiter opposition Chiron all span the Virgo/Pisces axis! There are three ways to benefit from these so very different, yet similar signs! Virgo is earthy and the Cosmic Gardener. Pisces is the Visionary making it meaningful, the Garden of Life. Both want to improve our conditions, Virgo our daily health, Pisces our immortal Soul! Virgo will work overtime again and again, will save your life with herbs and nursing, or improve your helpful business. Pisces is noted or giving their lives to a cause, being a Savior! Virgo helps with the techniques and technical, while Pisces puts on the show of a lifetime illustrating the sheer brilliance of Being, a Star!

Neptune IS the planet of Pisces! With the Sun in Pisces coming to it, there is a communion with one’s higher Self in person! They have an annual meeting, conjunction, but not often at a Full Moon! There may be a symbolic coming into acknowledgement, acceptance, understanding of the glory of heart of Pisces. There may be a surrender of ego to an immersion into the sea of all souls. Aquarius distinguishes the unity of friend to friend; Pisces sees no boundary ~ we ARE all ONE. Compassion is a strength gained by ‘seeing’ the sorrows, fears, fearlessness and abiding joys of another. We can walk together in understanding.

Fixed Star Fomalhaut is at 3 Pisces 52, with the Sun. It is the eye of the Southern Fish, one of the four Royal Stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars. Fomalhaut represents archangel Gabriel. Winter Solstice is its time. Creativity, musical talent, and idealism are important qualities. It is said when we are aligned with our Soul purpose things go well, if corrupt, downfall is on the way. Take a look at what Marina Macario has to say.

At the other side is the Moon in Virgo running around tending everything! The table of celebration is in order, the food and wine precisely and healthily selected, the room lighting adjusted, and whatever is needed is keenly and kindly processed. She Moon is incredibly supportive. Workers are carefully chosen, pets are kept happy. Pisces doesn’t always realize the full extent of the efforts or give appreciation, but Virgo is practical and knows why it is important the meeting goes well. Pisces often glides on the intuition of the connections of Souls. However, when Virgo is in trouble, Pisces can see the cause within, helping with the root rather than the meds. We all have our gifts.

11:59 AM Pacific, one minute to noon, Jupiter makes its second exact opposition with Chiron Feb 23 the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! The gateway has been open and polished. In the evening, the Moon moves forward to conjunct Jupiter at 6:44 PM Pacific, opposes Chiron at 6:50 PM Pacific! Moon carries the Full Moon energy to the opposition. She pampers yet demands quality performance.

Jupiter in Virgo watches from the opposite vantage point with way above average organizational skills. With ethics and honesty it takes care of our health so we can do the good business of life, enjoy or time with our fellows to the fullest. Jupiter in this sign minimizes costs with efficient efforts and maximizes the applications of our highly crafted skills! In Virgo, Jupiter can be playful, sometimes lazy or doesn’t show up for work in Virgo, or the most demanding you ever saw! Small details that others don’t see, pivotal to our success, are taken care of with a fine tooth comb! Even our pets are well tended! Prepare to be offered a full package deal. Jupiter in Virgo knows how true it is that all things are connected. Being apart, opposite Chiron, is an excellent position with the least attachment. Their perspective is priceless. See more!

Chiron was a bad boy Centaur in the early days, and in Pisces can become invisible, sharing some traits with Jupiter. If dedicated as the superb healer it can be, you better do your part if you have to crawl to get there! So much can be learned. In Pisces the wisdom applies to matters of the fluids in our bodies, the natural tidal flow of our consciousness. Pisces the Sensitive is an empath, compassionate psychic. Moon brings her feelings to the recipe. Sometimes it’s not funny at all, and you know the glower is well deserved. Other times you gotta laugh, it’s life, perfect and imperfect as always!

Jupiter is retrograding back to trine Pluto March 16, an aspect not to miss! Pay attention to the date! Get any grant applications IN, chat up potential sponsors, donors. Ask for monies owed. Look for secure ways to invest with trusted partners. See if your company can work for other large companies rather than one small job at a time. This is also a healing time. Virgo has trustworthy remedies. Capricorn wisely seeks council of experienced professionals. Jupiter is hips/thighs, Virgo small intestines. Pluto is guts and sexual organs, Capricorn bones, teeth, skin. Let go of obsessive behaviors, let new healing strategies work on a steady basis, working systemically, until it becomes a habit.

Jupiter next squares Saturn in a powerful 1, 2 connection from Feb 20 to June 15, just under a 4 month period! Either Jupiter amplifies Saturn’s doubts or depressions, or cheers Saturn up and they easily surpass previous goals! Saturn may have been dutifully trudging, but Jupiter in Virgo has new terrifically sensible ideas right down to the details that cheer Saturn up. If Jupiter trine Pluto got funding as hoped, Jupiter square Saturn applies it where most needed and that money may vanish before you believe it. Hopefully that will bring peace of mind. There may be additional expenses or things cost more than anticipated, so be frugal for now. At any rate, plans are made and work will be done to mend issues. Or, work may come to a standstill temporarily as assessments are made, proper materials selected, strengthening reinforced, and further funding sought. Sometimes a rest is a blessing.

Saturn in Sagittarius is in close square with Chiron and trine Uranus, but retrogrades before either aspect is made. With Uranus it is a near miss, not quite making the connection as hoped. Keep the info to try again later. Due to Saturn’s retrograde, the exact trine isn’t made until Dec 24! Until then, keep courting. With Chiron it’s a close call. What scares us almost happens, definitely a warning to be heeded. Take care of your business, education and health if this aspect affects your chart. If it looks like advancements may be denied, do what is needed to bring your resume up to par, take care of any obstacles before they take root.Uranus and Pluto are still thundering along closely, sometimes scaring the wits out of us, other times inspiring us to race far beyond the finish with our arms outflung for the sheer exhilaration of it all! Stunted, stunned or crazy with adventure or all of the above! Whatever it is, who would have expected that!?!? From old to young, it’s kinda like Bernie and the young vote! Research is going at top speed. Electronics are verbing! Beasts and monsters are being seen for their surprising values all over the world. Animals are being treated more humanely, new laws made. Cruel wrongdoers are publicly called out by society at large for their obscene behavior, not getting away with local injustices. The Internet is doing its job so we see what’s really behind what’s going on. Let Freedom ring! 

To Peace and Power for the Long Term Good for All

New Moon – First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!
Tuesday Mar 8 at 5:54 PM Pacific – 18 Pisces 56

Pisces 2016 Solar Eclipse New Moon Northern Lights

The Northern Lights and part of the Milky Way on a moonless night in Kolgrafarfjordur fjord in Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Western Iceland. http://www.arctic-images.com/ljosid/ 

Like a rainbow at night, the New Moon lets the stars of the Milky Way shimmer their energy to us. It’s quiet.

Solar Eclipse Pisces Stellium! Five factors are in Pisces! That’s five ways to look at Pisces, connect with them, them with you! That’s five ways for Pisces to send and receive.

Mercury is with Neptune, the Pisces planet! Mercury is thinking, communications, logic, but in Pisces it surrenders to a more ephemeral conduit, the conduit itself changing by what it perceives! Nothing about it is static. It believes what it sees as it sees it. It doesn’t always remember the past, even five minutes ago, and it may not matter that is does. Everything is real in the moment, 100% up to date! Logic is diffused as myriads of ideas and whims flit by. It is absorptive, and the accumulation of all the ideas makes things whole and evolutionary! To others this may appear as confusion or lies, depending on which moment you are there, then later get a whole set of different answers. Just know that your friend is ever changing. It’s a kind of intelligence.

Moon and Sun are together! Perhaps in Pisces they are merged as they can ever be. Pisces often doesn’t discuss, they feel, and feel is a small word for the experience. It’s way more than twins. There is no difference, not even a blur. Moon is absorbed by Sun, Moon is more than stealthy. She simply becomes one with Sun. Without his knowing, she reads his every nuance, entirety of Spirit, connotation of Being. Caring is surrendered. Ego is surrendered. They simply are.

The Moon was with Jupiter in the opposition Chiron the day after our previous Full Snow Moon, Lunar Eclipse. Now it has circled to the opposite side with Chiron, caught up with Sun, is just barely past the opposition with Jupiter, semi sextile Uranus, all four at 18 degrees!

Moon and Sun with Chiron put Sun and Moonlight, Moon’s caring and compassion, into places we fear will never heal. As they merge with Chiron, there is a frisson, a knowing what needs doing. It’s personal. As a healer, your core ability will be updated. You may not understand it immediately, but it will spread through your workaday being, with more revealed in the Dreamtime. It may be subtle, but oh, how profound. Trust your Spirit. Relationships will shift to a new understanding, some to be rightfully abandoned, completed, others to be more musical, deeply in accord.

The Eclipse and Chiron are in a T Square with Jupiter opposite and Saturn square. The Sun square Saturn was all the previous week and the dust is settling, but the Moon made the square only two days ago, not quite letting us forget. Sun or Moon square Saturn usually isn’t so fun. We need to face what shames us. It doesn’t matter if others tell us we are great. We know what we hide. Keeping that in mind, do the things that make the change. The wonderful semi sextile with Uranus in Aries helps us find or work with friends or groups that encourage us to get on our own two feet!

Shortly, March 23, Jupiter Rx will square Saturn exactly! We are already in the sequence, it finishes June 15. Saturn is having more fun than usual in Sagittarius, and Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! It can be disconcerting to be pestered to fun when you just like doing your ordained work and have been such a good person, LOL. But let it loose a bit and what doesn’t fall away, will be a valued and enjoyable part of the new program. Probably will take a bit of getting used to. Expand your production a bit and see if the computer results back up your hopes. If not, check for alternative methods until you get the right combination. On a completely different note, for those of you that are getting older, think of your long term plans, retirement. Square things up so it will be comfortable. Virgo and Saturn are earthy, common sense, practical. They will help you let go of old outmoded ideas, make wise choices now!

Nov 5 Jupiter was inconjunct Uranus, the ChangeMaker! We were pulled a wee bit off course, only to discover it was the perfect move! Off to the side was a bright surprise that awakened or reawakened something unique in us, a talent that hadn’t risen yet or has lain dormant for awhile. This aspect was exact again two days before the New Moon, March 6. It again nudged a gateway open, an obstacle aside, this time to allow the deep Soul connection of the New Moon in Pisces. They are unavoidably at the same degrees! Opposites both separate and call each other’s names. Separation indicates a culmination, the capacity for difference and tolerance. It gives space to see how the other fits in the world, lets us breathe and be who we are on our own. We may split off, continuing on separate ways, but ever having been influenced by the ones we leave behind who helped or hindered. In some respects, separation inevitably becomes closer as the planets continue along their circle. That handshake across the table or across the chasm of cultural difference, ages, gender, sexual preferences, opens us to sharing the best each has to offer, to learn about why other people make the choices they do.

This inconjunct and Uranus semi sextile the Eclipse calls for adjustment, more awareness. Friends make a difference. Whether we change or not makes a difference. Do we choose to act alone, take the point? Or do we find other Souls to align with and multiply our powers across the community, the world? It may be time to allow difference and embrace new standards. It’s time to acknowledge the essence, start a new plan, organize and stick to it!

Uranus square Pluto Though not in exact aspect, they may as well be because of their duration, how closely they are traveling, especially if they affect your personal chart! Uranus was born to upset the old sacred archetypes. Ever more so being in Aries, the rights fighter, leader, rebellious! The more they use the genius ahead of its time, the deeper Pluto in Capricorn digs in, protecting deeply entrenched systems. Clash of the Titans effect, definitely some casualties. Ironically, Pluto loves a good plunge into clean up and recycle jobs and betrays the combination of Capricorn’s lock. So when it’s open, let a few experts take a look, see what to keep and save, what to let go of. Good luck.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are making an equidistant ‘ASTERISM,’ pattern. At both ends of the purple line across the top of the chart, see there are red lines and blue lines. The reds are the squares, the blue are the trines! Equidistant patterns have a peculiarly potent power exchange, especially when all the degrees are so close! Uranus and Jupiter are at 18, as is the New Moon Eclipse! Saturn is at 16, Pluto at 17, Chiron at 20. That’s 7 factors within 4 degrees of each other. Squares are intended to be both breakaways and builders. Trines smooth out the rough spots. The purple line, an inconjunct, helps us consider adjustments that make a difference to the outcome.

March 16, only 8 days after our New Moon, Jupiter trine Pluto, part of the asterism, is exact the second time! This is a wonderfully profitable aspect when used well, if in good connection with your personal chart! There are possibilities of a tremendous healing, the most meaningful travels of a lifetime. Secrets will come out, often in a good way. See more!

Saturn trine Uranus also in the asterism, is close, very close, but retrogrades at 16 degrees. There are whispers, hints and hopes, but the exact aspect won’t happen until months away on Christmas Eve! Consider the potential of long term professional alliances, associations. Court them, put it on your calendar to connect in collaboration mid November, December.

Endings and beginnings are natural! As the Moon comes to the Sun, a cycle is ending, maturity, accomplishment. Take credit. The Moon is given a Sunburst infusion in the nature of the Sign they are in. We don’t think of Pisces as so radiant a sign, more likely retiring, but we can hear the songs and see the lights of a large concert for miles around! Many Pisceans are magical musicians, chameleon actors that imprint our Souls, superb performers from tender to crescendo in the limelight! They run huge oceanic ventures of all kinds, in charge of the lives of many others! They need a terrific energy charge to wield these enterprises. Please open your arms wide this Eclipse and let that straight shot pierce your defenses, cleanse and brighten your every molecule!

Blessed be, make it so.

This Eclipse will be visible primarily in Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi and from locations in the Pacific ocean.

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.

Adam Lanza Shooting  - Sad and frightened Children

Terribly sad, horrified.  You have likely heard by now of Adam Lanza’s assault.  He shot 20 children, 6 adults – including his Mother, and himself.  There is no greater sorrow than losing your children.  Important matters raised are gun control, mental illness and its care, communications and intervention, our personal responsibility.  Astrologically, we have been having a difficult aspect related to this kind of event, Uranus square Pluto, since 2010, that continues through March 2015.  There are uncomfortable things we must learn about and take care of.  Especially at this time before the Mayan Alignment Portal, Christmas and New Year, this event is such a reminder. Let there be Peace on Earth, and let it begin with Me.

First, here is Adam Lanza’s birth chart.

Adam Lanza Astology Birth Chart, born April 22, 1992.

We don’t have a birth time for Adam,
so this is a Sun on the Ascendant, Solar Houses chart.
The chart is calculated for Noon to get median positions for the Planets.

Adam has what the Magi astrologers call a ‘Flying Eagle’ symmetrical formation – from Jupiter, it links to a Grand Earth Trine to the Moon and Sun (the blue triangle).  The Flying Eagle starts there at the bottom of the chart, the short green line, the two blue lines and two purple lines extending upward into the chart, they are linked by the red line, a square between the North Node and Mercury.  This aspect pattern has mixed effects.  The trines, Jupiter to North Node, and Chiron to Mercury, bring blessings of the ability to learn.  Yet the inconjuncts, the purple lines, Jupiter to Mercury, and Chiron to the North Node, bring stresses and adjustments, an unsurety of where you stand, always having to be on your toes.

The Grand Trine  In this case, Jupiter in Virgo can be hugely self-critical, the Moon in Capricorn can be susceptible to emotional depression.  It is thought not to be empathetic, and cold to receiving nurturing, or thinks their Mother is cold.  Sun in Taurus dislikes being pushed or disturbed, so it can be a closed system.  Jupiter in Virgo can also be well studied, so deems itself superior.  What could anyone else say to help, yet there is pain.  Mercury and Venus in Aries need to be independent, so again, tough to reach this person.

There are three seriously difficult aspects.  They are of a type that I would not recommend marriage with this person, likely the person would never marry.

  1. Sun square Chiron in Sun’s sign Leo – possible unhappy marriage, difficulties with sense of personal woundedness.
  2. Venus square his Uranus conjunct Neptune exact at 18 degrees – with Uranus, unstable, needs for freedom, especially with Venus in Aries of independence, not a natural togetherness placement for Venus.  With Neptune, possible overwhelming, even addictive fears, real or imagined, triggering anger.  Mercury in Aries can have a hair trigger temper, completely embarrassing to Capricorn Moon, and to Pluto in its own sign Scorpio, that doesn’t like to show its hand.   With Saturn in Aquarius closely related to the pattern at 17 degrees, feelings of being trapped, not just by others, but by oneself.
  3. Saturn square Pluto – One of the most difficult aspects for anyone.  At worst, there can be sexual abuse, a deep sense of impotency, hatreds.  With Mars, even though in gentle Pisces, it is still a planet of anger, action and guns.  It’s trine with Pluto, extremes and death, the anger came out in a lethal tsunami.

Moon of Mother in Capricorn, and Saturn of Father in Aquarius, there were likely feelings of super controlling on one hand, abandonment on the other, from both parents.  So all alone.

Here is the chart of the shooting.

Adam Lanza Shooting Astrology Chart

Calculated for the 911 Call

Many times I find a major event happens just after triggering planets activate the points.  The Moon has just activated the Jupiter Yod with Saturn and Pluto.  Jupiter maximizes principles a person has, Saturn brings down the hammers, Pluto goes to extremes of retribution, even Death.  The Capricorn Moon, emotions, just crossed over Pluto, perhaps an extreme of depression, that Capricorn is susceptible to.  The Moon had also triggered the Uranus square Pluto, erratic, extreme ups and downs.  When Uranus isn’t genius, it can be considered a loner, sometimes insane.

Mercury and Jupiter are opposite, exaggerating disassociated thinking. They are also in each other’s signs, which may have the effect of merging too many thoughts, Jupiter in Gemini, trillions, and Mercury in Sagittarius, hard to focus, won’t stop. Overwhelmed.

The chart Ascendant is at a degree of ending, 29 degrees, Capricorn. What was done, was done. Abrupt, concise, no fixing it.

Comparison graph of Adam’s birth chart
and the time of the shooting. 

Adam’s natal planets below are down the left of the graph, the shooting planets across the top of the graph.

Adam Lanza  Astrology - Birth Chart Compared with Shooting Chart

We don’t have Adam’s birth time,
so the Moon’s degree may vary,
ignore his house placements, do not use his ASC, MC aspects.

Looking at planets in close active degree connections with each other, there are several potent activators.

Transiting planets Uranus and Pluto are strongly likely activating Adam’s Moon and are activating Adam’s Mercury.  Moon is emotional and Mercury is logical.  They are likely at odds in his birth chart, one could be cold and calculating, the other hot, maybe angry, definitely impetuous!

Uranus and Mercury were both at the degree of Adam’s Jupiter, both were challenging his principles, bringing criticism of himself, him of others, to the fore.

Uranus conjunct Adam’s Mercury in Aries, at the SAME DEGREE! Totally erratic radical angry thinking, wanting to shock! This would only happen once every 84 years, for some people not in their lifetime!

It is likely that the transiting Moon in Capricorn, conjunct Adam’s natal Moon in Capricorn was the trigger of the event.  The Moon is illogical, Lunar, hence, lunacy.  In Capricorn, feelings can be internalized to the point of implosion, a breaking point.  It feels trapped, nowhere to go, no one to listen, to understand.  It feels failed, and is shamed beyond understanding.  They say depression is anger turned inward.  There can come a point when it all doesn’t fit anymore.  If the ingrained chronic condition is to conceal forbidden feelings, it can go unconscious, just loses it.  I don’t know if you can imagine what pain this might be.  The Moon had just crossed Pluto, planet of extremes and intensity, and Death.

If any of you have these planetary placements, PLEASE, do not think that these are the only expressions of their energy.  Many of us have difficult aspects, and we live well with them everyday, learning, growing, yes, some errors.  If you do think you could use some help, confide with someone you trust, who is experienced with life, who is encouraging and celebrates you!

If you have children, please discuss school security measures.  Most importantly, let them talk, lovingly assure them, help them feel safe.  Know they will regress a bit if they are scared.  Give, let, the time it takes.  Know who your children are with.  If you have doubts, err on the side of protection.

May I encourage you all to BE with young people? Don’t let them be alone, especially the quiet or intimidating ones.  Don’t let them be alone after school.  Join after school programs.  Spend time with them doing good things they enjoy to build their confidence.  Give them a safe place, to be in, to talk, be heard without judgment.  Assure their fears.  Tell them out loud what you love about them.  Every day.  Art, sports, nature, are a few ways to engage them.  If you don’t know how to do these things, learn yourself.  Take a parenting class, communications workshop.  If either you or your beloved children need counseling, get it, for BOTH of you.  It takes mutual understanding, no blame.  See your priest, pastor, rabbi.  Whatever it takes.  Gather your courage and love; it will be worth the reward.
