Sagittarius 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Sagittarius ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow!

Sagittarius Rainbow DNA Evolution

Sagittarius is always looking to the future, from within to all of the Universe!

Instead of the arrow’s arc I always think of the rainbow arc, the rays of Light that always give us delight and hope for the future, that pot of gold! In human terms I think of the Soul’s connections, the strands of Light that pulse through our bodies, the myriads of connections from human to human. Some we see, others are part of our DNA, some are subtle mystical Light grids that bind our fibers within, that in turn extend and are the collective DNA of all humanity.

These structures weave our evolution simultaneously at all levels with all Beings throughout time. In the earliest days, when we were wanderers following game and gathering foods, travel was essential to life. Carrying the fiery coals, Light, from camp to camp was vital. Today we think of travel as a luxury, a trip for relaxation, fun, to see the sights, meet new kinds of people. The Light is in our hearts as we share and discover. Our smiles light the way. Light and knowledge travel to far reaches.

Some of that Light stays, is gathered, in various knowledge centers, villages, great cities, universities, to small private groups who need to stay safe. It becomes its own magnet bringing people from all over to partake. They will take it home to their own people, adapt it to local use. Evolution is in play in leaps and bounds. The first person in a family to go to school, to get a degree, is so precious. More will follow.

Sagittarius is a tribe of Light Leaders. Even if they don’t know it. Some are just trying to survive, some think they are just going surfing, others want to change the world! It’s a big place and a lot is happening as new concepts spring whole from collective knowledge. Each level begets the next, makes it possible. We stabilize at one level, then some fool wants more, LOL! It’s 100% creative, the life force full of vitality! The new and unknown or unexpected is happening right before your eyes!

Sagittarians are rampant story tellers! They can be the scientist telling us of developments, the novelist in a state of unbridled imagination, the campfire ghost story, the person at the pulpit, the entertaining teacher waking up his students! One way or the other it’s a cosmic gotcha! People can’t help but follow. They want to see what’s next! Sometimes it all involves proposals, projects, missions! The scientist and novelists both want a betterment of some sort. It’s either data that suggests the best track, or the novelist cloaking the grand idea in fancy wrap. Gets you thinking. You start living the story in your own mind. You might find yourself coaching the crew, showing people how. You might be the roadside evangelist like the Buddha, on a mission to the ‘uninformed,’ or rebuilding the lands in a starving country. The spiritual stories help you mend your morality, your life or the lives of others.

Sagittarians can be carefree, careless or caring. There are lifetimes when we need to take time out. Sag is the active version of that, versus Pisces taking silence and meditation. Sometimes play is the balance between freedom and boredom. If you are learning to play, make no apology. It’s as important a skill as any other. Being pinned to a map is a form of suffocation. Too much responsibility leaves us tired and our beautiful open mind collapses. Walk away before that happens. There are perfect stops along the road of life, and perfect times to go on. Crazy as it may seem, you will undoubtedly take us where we need to go just the same, no matter how you are thinking at the time. Your natural instinct is working just fine. Trust.

I have a deep regard for the Soul of Hawaiian Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole. We don’t have his birthtime, so we don’t know the whole of his astrology chart. He was a Cancer with Moon likely in Scorpio conjunct Neptune. Venus trined that Neptune and Moon. He certainly was a well loved Soul Traveler with a beautiful Spirit. Please breathe deeply and listen… Somewhere Over the Rainbow

This is the luckiest year for Sagittarius since his own planet Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! It started Nov 8, goes through Dec 2, 2019. Happens every 11 to 12 years! If you have had troubles, this is a good year to pick up the pieces, make a new plan. If troubles come, know that good things will come through it, though it may seem pretty dark at times. This year, don’t let things keep you down. Seek the meaning and move on. As possible, live it full and well with gusto!

Sagittarius 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Sagittarius 2018 Comet 46P Wirtanen Fazekas

Skychart by Andrew Fazekas, the Night Sky Guy

December 12: Comet Encounter! 

The 46P/Wirtanen Comet may brighten enough in December to be spotted easily with the unaided eye. If it does attain naked-eye visibility, it will be the brightest comet seen from the Northern Hemisphere in more than five years. The icy interloper will reach perihelion—its closest approach to the sun—on December 12 and will be traveling through the bright winter constellation Taurus, the bull. Remember, it will be a dot rather than a line when you see it, so look carefully!

Sagittarius Overview of Year to Come!

As said above, this is the luckiest year for Sagittarius since his own planet Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! It started Nov 8, goes through Dec 2, 2019. Happens every 11 to 12 years! If you have had troubles, this is a good year to pick up the pieces, make a new plan. If troubles come, know that good things will come through it, though it may seem pretty dark at times. This year, don’t let things keep you down. Seek the meaning and move on. As possible, live it full and well with gusto!

Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, entering Sagittarius was the last of a 10 day series of events started when
 Pluto crossed the Golden Ecliptic Oct 30! Those events set the die for Sagittarius this year 2018/19. These events occurred during Venus Retrograde that was followed back to back with Mercury Retrograde Nov 16! See Venus/Mercury Rx! Sag is the sign of purpose and planning. It will be up to you Sagittarians to be our PathFinders and Guides, to keep us on track in the important times to come. It’s important for us to get a good start, to set the course well.

Further, the Ecliptic event links with the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury! Mercury crosses the face of the Sun for hours! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032. Only a few days later, Nov 19, Jupiter conjuncts the GALACTIC CENTER! Though it is only on a 12 year cycle, they are potent as sister aspects, essentially happening concurrently!

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun he will be empowered by solar light, will express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Jupiter puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor, Jupiter is the, in this case, galactic traveler!

Sagittarius starts with Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune in their own signs, Jupiter in his own sign, Sagittarius! That’s a lot of pure energy, strong on their spot. Jupiter and Neptune are malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Saturn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules, honor your ancestors – translate that to elders, the boss! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show and he wants to know what’s real, is it doable.

During Sag’s year, Uranus and Chiron are making their final sign changes. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries. While he is still in Pisces, we will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Mar 6 Uranus to Taurus. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and balance restored. Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again!

Late in 2019, Dec 2, Jupiter moves into Capricorn! Jupiter will speed Capricorn up! They are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential and offers encouragement. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive!

Sagittarius’s year starts while Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius, so there are changes of directions from the get go! Sag is always curious to see what’s what, and these are, after all, Sag kinds of changes! Shifts of direction are second nature to him, so it’s a sporting chance to see how it goes! Bets are made. If possible, maybe wait until Mercury goes direct Dec 6 before moving, going into escrow, making job changes, signing up for an important travel tour, signing important papers. Keep tabs on receipts and contracts.

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those are the aspects just before the Nov 11, 2019 eleven, eleven Transit of Mercury and Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Sagittarius’s coming year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Sagittarius 2018 – December 2019!

Sagittarius 2018 Brown Sugar Surfcamp Bali Woman Surfing

Brown Sugar Surfcamp in Bali – Medewi Indonesia. One happy person said: Thanks for two unforgettable weeks with Beach-BBQ, sightseeing, good food and nice people. And by the way – we learned how to surf! Take care and keep… 

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Chiron orbits every 51 years; Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet right…on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one ‘sees’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn. But this year it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! This is a long term aspect that precedes our Sun’s sign change into Sagittarius by only 23 days! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris will be burned away, be having a fiery bath of Light, cleared to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers will increase exponentially! He will give that very energy to Sun and the Light itself will be more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for Sagittarius! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio, will be cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. Neither Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested them.

Pluto reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018, now moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival.  Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Capricorn is a sign ahead of Sagittarius. Pluto rules Scorpio, the sign behind. Sagittarius always has big ideas that are generally far seeing and quite lucky! Good stock to invest in as an initial public offering! Capricorn knocks things down to size and priorities while Pluto gets the building materials at the right price. If Cap doesn’t come along, Sag will go find greener pastures, a better fit. Cap may be lucky that Sag does because the idea was more optimistic than realistic! But both are changed. Sagittarius will be a little more alert to select better partners, not lead people on a merry path that wastes time. Cap may tweak the idea to something that does work. Or the idea just hasn’t reached the right time to happen yet. Cap may put it on his future list, check back on that list periodically. Sleeping dog.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Sagittarius both have a boundless quality. Sag will travel forever; Pisces can step into an altered state with no boundaries at all other than being alive. Sag travels the Earth while Pisces can sit still and be somewhere else entirely. Sag has got to be in motion and can seem like a laughing loud whirlwind. Sag thinks Pisces is slow to the bone and needs a pick-me-up desperately! Ah, Pisces may have to stand up and go to the window for this one. Once up, he’s intrigued, and may find himself dancing like a Dervish in another dimension! Sag has done this traveling so long, place to place, he may not realize that he is actually weary and sits down for a while. Might be a few days or a few years. Listening is a whole different mode of being. Sag is a straight shooter, goes for the big Truth right now, and says what it is out loud. Pisces is more subtle, sees gradations, variables. He morphs, encompasses, at times confuses. Adjustments are made that fit the big picture better. Talk it over, part if you must, but give it some time, hear each other out.

URANUS covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in the last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future ideas that Taurus will anchor and build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. See more about the sign change.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is automatic. In fiery Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

Aries and Sagittarius are both leaders! Aries is at the front line, saving people right and left! He saves their bodies, gives them an inspiration jump start, then brings them to Sagittarius to learn what’s next and how to do it! Sag opens their minds to possibilities beyond what they started with. Sag encourages them, is plenty confident with high hopes for them! Action sports are helpful to keep the molecules humming. Neither are marriage minded, but it’s fun together while it lasts! Aries get bored; Sag has itchy traveling feet. Only if you strongly have the same goals is a team likely.

March 6, 2019 Uranus enters Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Taurus is an Earth sign; Sagittarius is a Fire sign that seems halfway across the continent to a Taurus. They are so different that Sag may seem like more of a phenomena than an actual person. If you are firing ceramics in the kiln it’s not so foreign. Fire and clay. Fire is actually the stabilizer! Taurus is looking for peace, the ability to sit and center. Uranus rarely has that thought, but may be surprised how useful that relaxation is. Sag sits for a bit, but must soon wander off. Uranus loves all those ideas. Taurus touches them in his own way and owns them for himself. Sagittarius is intrigued by what Uranus in Taurus has and will achieve, unpretentious genius really, and happily spreads the good word along his way.

CHIRON, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, and after taking a foray into Aries, is now back in Pisces. It will cover 27 Pisces to 5 AriesSee more It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Pisces/Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Sagittarius happily boots Chiron right along, always wanting people to be well, have abundance, success! Chiron in Pisces can get a little lost at times, confused. Sag is known for saying everything out loud and up front, so no escaping the truth, like it or not. Though uncomfortable, it may be the very right time to face up to victim attitudes, fears, addictions. Sag has big boots, and can help make the seven league leap look effortless! All of a sudden you are in a different land and have a different outlook entirely!

Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Sagittarius waves as he goes by, cheers them on, is inspired to tell their story! Sagittarius wants the information spread far and wide, encourages Aries to plant those seeds in the most fertile soil. Chiron may have spiky red hair this time, laughing like Kokopelli! Chiron may heal people so fast, quickly picking up the pieces, even Sagittarius, stunningly healthy and able, is impressed. Chiron is covering the ground, Sag likely to follow! It is so good to see how truly remarkable health can be! He is cheered and feels he can carry on against the longest odds. Aries is fast to pick up the tricks Sag has acquired along the way, and Sag has no secrets, shares as much as Aries will take! Sag has creds, his own health and luck! These two disperse the doubt like a whirlwind, the way is cleared, production unfettered!

SATURN builds from 6 to 20 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 6 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through December 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can put the brakes on Fire sign Sagittarius. Sag has a lot to offer, but can appear to be like a big floppy puppy with kisses all around! Saturn believes in discipline and may miss a little of that love and affection, but as he trains the pooch in us, results make good sense, as long as our Spirit isn’t broken and creativity lost. A wise Saturn gleans the good from Sagittarian adventures, thanks him, offers to pay for the next trip, and makes that Sag feel so valued! Sag’s trips become more focused, places visited have much more meaning, knowledge is shared both ways, continuing long distance connections make a difference! If anything, Sagittarius is more excited than ever! Saturn may help Sag establish a home base. That might take some doing, but it could work. Just don’t keep the reins too tight nor expect a marriage. There would need to be some strong compatibility for that. If you see the Light dimming in your Sagittarian’s eyes, let them loose. Boredom or continually trying too hard to please you has too high a price. No matter what you think, they have the luck of the Irish and they’re going to be ok! However, if you get out of hand, LOL, Saturn does have handcuffs…

JUPITER moves from 2 Sagittarius to 4 Capricorn

Jupiter is a big fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter went into Sag at 4:38 AM Pacific. The huge Camp Fire in California started that morning, first calls at 6:33 AM. Jupiter changing signs was preceded by an eventful NINE days started by the important 248 year aspect Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! I had written ‘Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!’ As of Nov 21, the Camp Fire has taken the lives of 81 people, about 870 are missing. Nov 15 nearby Chico CA had an AQI, Air Quality Index, of 350 at one point.

Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And, as spoken above, if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it more than they do. Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.   

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

Happy New Year, Sagittarians!

Jupiter, your Planet, is in your sign, its own sign! Put on your 7 league boots and have a swell time!x


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Full Frost Moon!

Nov 22 the Sun leaps into Sagittarius at 1:02 AM Pacific, on ThanksGiving Day! The stage has been set. The Full Frost Moon is that evening at 9:39 PM Pacific, 0 Gemini/Sagittarius 52! It’s on Nov 23 at 12:39 AM EASTERN time!

Mercury Retrograde. T Square, Kite, Cardinal Grand Square ~ all linked! 

Sagittarius 2018 Full Travelers Moon
This one is called the Beaver or Frost Moon, but this year we might as well call it the Travelers’ Moon! It’s on ThanksGiving Day and whether you are going home to be with family or taking advantage of the holiday to take a trip, many are going to be on the road or in that plane! 

AND, this is the first lunar event, and I do mean first, it and Jupiter are at zero degrees, with Jupiter now in his own sign Sagittarius – the planet and sign of travelers! Apropos it is since the Full Moon spans Gemini (Moon) to Sun sign Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter, on the first day of 2018 Sagittarius!!! Arms open wide, Moon and Sun cross the dimensions. Gemini is fascinated by every single encounter with any possible living or inanimate thing at its fingertips! Sagittarius would walk 100 miles to see what is over that next hill and who might be there! Gemini thinks 100 miles a minute while Sagittarius is contemplating what it all means and is making plans to go another 100, knowing there is more! 

Mars sits at a T point to the Moon, Sun and Jupiter! His temperament is very different than theirs. They are chatty and heady compared with him in Pisces. He is a leader, but in Pisces can take complete silence. He can lead from behind or within, yet get him on a pulpit and the fire comes out! He can surprisingly lead the fray, an inspired compassionate leader in behalf of those who suffer. He is sensitive to what needs doing now to save the most later. His sensitivity avoids mistakes, gets right to the heart of things.

Sun and Jupiter are backed by a Grand Trine/Kite that finished Nov 19. Sun was in Scorpio then, received advice from Chiron in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer. Chiron gave tips on healing the Soul, the helpless and hopeless, other leaders involved with planetary healing. The Cancer North Node impressed Sun with the organic need for food and shelter, cleanliness and emotional support. Sun now in Sagittarius wants people to know, and put programs in place to get people on their feet, to be able to be contributing citizens.

Moon sits sextile midpoint between Chiron and Moon’s own North Node. And, she is one point of that T Square! She links them. First, as sextile Chiron and the Node, she too got the information Sun and Jupiter did! Where Sun & Jupiter in Sag are promoters, the Moon rules our shelter, women, children, the public at large. She knows the feelings of the times. She’s like a weather barometer that helps us make our moves at the times best for their reception. Sextiles of water and earth, she was in Taurus then, blend understanding and application. Taurus wants it to be anchored and long serving. Now in Gemini she’s spreading the word, getting thinking going. Next thing you know you are on the volunteer list!

There is a Cardinal Grand Square too! Cardinal signs get things going! Uranus is the Chief in Aries, leader, first responder! He thinks in terms of from the loner to all humanity! Getting one pivotal key person started can become an avalanche of success, worldwide achievement! Venus, in her own sign Libra, is sweeting her way along mending rifts, introducing strangers of great differences, blessing the day with beauty. She explains legalities and has teeth when she needs them. Don’t underestimate her. The Moon’s Nodes are the second axis – Capricorn south, Cancer North. We have been no nonsense business people before, building solidly a day at a time, supervising the troops, buying time, doing research and testing. Now we are adding in Cancerian caring, nurturing with quality food and comforting, offering personal support in community matters, the Sacred Feminine. Children are our treasures of the future.  

Uranus sits midpoint semisextile between Chiron and Moon! He links all three configurations, The Mars T Square, the Grand Trine and the Grand Cardinal Square. These are all action oriented combinations.

Venus is no longer retrograde, but Mercury is now since Nov 16. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde! It’s especially significant to this Full Moon since Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Communications are essential to spreading the good word. When Mercury/Gemini exchanges across the table to Sagittarius, he knows the information will go far and wide for free! Sagittarius loves telling stories, educating, sharing perspectives, opening minds to a vast array of information. Travel blogs to tomes. The retrograde function keeps reviewing, stirring the pot, incorporating insights that have come along.

Mercury squares Neptune. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Retrograde makes for a lot of quick mind changing. Neptune too can go either way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Saturn is making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see the many facets that need to be harmonized. The ‘shifting sands’ of these mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius can be like quicksand swallowing you up, or a mixing bowl bringing each thing that needs work to the surface so it can be dealt with. Mutable signs are known to be in motion, adaptable – sometimes accommodating, other times taking you with them! 

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

Astronomical note! Our Full Moon is occuring at the same time as what is called the Pleiadian Alignment that started Nov 15, finishing Nov 23, the day after ThanksGiving! Earth, Moon 0 Gemini, Sun and the Pleiades 0 Gemini are precisely in a row! They were known as the Weeping Sisters, in old horary astrology, something to weep about. Lord knows we in California have had just that with the deadly Camp Fire and the sad losses with the Woolsey Fire. Some organic astrologers equate the weeping with rain. We are hoping for a steady light rain that our scorched land can absorb. The Pleiades are also called the Seven Sacred Sisters, with various mythologies about them, feminine, intuitive. Please allow a special channel to flow between us all. Blessed be. 

Also, take some special time this Full Moon day to consider what to do and make plans to do it. Review the 2019 Annual Special Edition. Jot notes in your calendar. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Start as you can. Expect intelligent modifications to occur, a few natural mistakes. Mercury is retrograde, changing things on purpose, and it shouldn’t all go as planned, but, in time, even better! Evolution is the constant of change!

New Moon!

Thursday December 6 Mercury DIRECT 1:22 PM Pacific then the New Moon at 11:20 PM Pacific, 15 Sagittarius 07. It’s on December 7 in all the other US Time zones east of Pacific. 

Mercury Direct! Jupiter in own sign & New Moon in Sagittarius! Grand Square, Grand Trine, Mars/Neptune, 15°!

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

Photographer Dave Lane says a storm just passed before he captured this beautiful sight at Yellowstone National Park in 2015. He spent 4 months color-correcting the night time images to match them to the natural colors seen in the daytime at Yellowstone National Park. See the image large! See Dave’s photography tips!

This is the first New Moon during Jupiter in Sagittarius and the New Moon is IN Sagittarius! Hallelujah! It’s a double Sag chart plus Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. This is a 12 year restart for Jupiter! Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. And it’s the perfect support  for Jupiter! In his sign Sagittarius, Sun shines for him and Moon can feel the Sag messages so important to share! Make notes! Schedule to review and update them from time to time!

Mercury is no longer retrograde! Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio Dec 1 and Venus enters Scorpio Dec 2 at 9:02 AM Pacific. Mercury entered an intense Station (appearing to standstill) for 8 days in the last degrees of Scorpio! The Scorpio messages will be steeped, condensed, focused on, anchored in place. Decide what you want to keep as core guidance, let the rest go. Your foundation is set, move on with Venus’s blessing. Mercury turns direct, forward, Dec 6, the heart of the station, on the Sagittarius NEW MOON! The turn, very slow at first, has been made. After the next four days the findings will start being released, momentum will be gained. Mercury returns to Sagittarius Dec 12. He will be downloading the information to Jupiter Dec 12, leaving nothing out, until he conjuncts Jupiter Winter Solstice, Yule, Dec 21! Venus will be left behind on her own, still in Scorpio. See more: Venus/Mercury Retrograde Back to Back!

This chart is rather simple – you can see in the chart there are few aspects made – the color connector lines. What is exciting is that the point of the red triangle and the big blue triangle are linked!

There is the red, triangle that actually represents a Grand Square of Uranus, Venus and the Moon’s Nodes! It is quite odd in its combination. Uranus is in fire sign Aries retrograde. It will be squared by the Moon’s North Node in it’s own sign Cancer, also retrograde. Since the node moves faster, it will make the square while both of them are retrograde. Uranus in fiery Aries couldn’t be more his own man, complete loner to a leader of humanitarian efforts. Either way he is consumed, others have to come to him. Moon’s North Node in its own water sign Cancer is more likely to stay home unless it is a matter of taking care of the children. Venus is also in a water sign, Scorpio, still close but leaving them both behind. Water signs are usually trine, a harmonious aspect, but here they are square, somewhat at odds yet in compatible signs. It’s a similar setup for Venus ‘opposite’ Uranus. Oppositions are usually in opposite signs, which oddly have some compatibility. In this case they would be Aries/Libra – fire/air or Taurus/Scorpio – earth/water. But these are not. They are Fire/Water. Could be steamy, but Venus, of Libra has had enough of that upstart Aries, no finesse she thinks. Or she is impressed, and takes up his cause. In charismatic Scorpio she is looking for love and money, or wants to be around involvement with deep healing skills and centers for homeless, hospice, addictions. She’s blessed and not afraid of the dark side or being behind the scenes. Oh, the juicy secrets! She is not just a pretty face; she will do more than expected and more than we will ever know. Give her the reigns, yet check on her from time to time for your own peace of mind. 

There is the blue Grand Water Trine. The Moon’s North Node links the Grand Square with the Trine. Trines are considered a blessed configuration and the North Node too. North Node is our aspiration, balance with the South. In this trine, Mercury is exactly at the same degree and minute, giving deeper facts and wisdom from Scorpio, who has faced life and death. The North Node in Cancer wants to protect its own, so is quite grateful and now more able to secure resources and the safety of loved ones. Though the Node, always moving backwards through the signs, and Chiron are parting, Chiron in Pisces saw the weak points and showed the Node how to apply healing of spirit, as Scorpio showed the Node healing remedies. In turn, The node offered a nurturing place to stay, free of obsessions and addictions, instead a safe place with innocent babies and children that give us the reason to say clean and sober, to not stray from the organic reasons for being here together. Many times healers need to heal themselves. This trine is a great gift.

This trine helps calm the red lines. Uranus needs to be free, but how free? We are all a part of each other. We breathe the same air. Be free to be sweet. Pay more attention to the living beings around you doing the best they can. Be free to be able to receive love. Being touched by the Spirit of others makes a living difference. Venus in Scorpio can be enamored with her own seductive beauty that may be the source of her money. She may forget she too is a part of a web of dear humans that would love and admire her for more of what she is rather than what she has. They will love her when she is wrinkled and gray. She may be so wrapped up in giving healing she forgets herself. Open those pretty eyes, lift that chin, see and feel the love people have for you. Keep the balance.

The New Moon itself not in either pattern! In fact, it is virtually standing alone numerically. Both Moon and Sun recently squared Mars and Neptune, but, traveling faster, Moon and Sun are leaving them behind. What they will carry with them is the spice of Mars’s dreams while he has been close with Neptune. Mars has been inspired by Neptune’s amazing insights. Mars isn’t noted for being subtle, but he is in Neptune’s sign with Neptune. He is being steeped in Spirit. Aligned, he sees the vision too. Neptune is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mars is the planet of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac! It’s alpha and omega, the beginning and the end! What one starts the other must end. What one dreams the other must begin! Both are planets of Initiation, one through perceptions and visions, the other through the action taken in their behalf! Leadership is often born of what we see that needs saving.

Mars makes the exact conjunction Dec 7 at 6:12 AM Pacific, so essentially, the daytime operative hours are the same day as the New Moon! Two beginnings at once! It is also true that Neptune and Pisces may obscure your vision and accuracy. You or what’s out there may seemingly be ‘invisible.’ Please be careful if you feel tired, distressed, or even super ‘high.’ You may not be as invincible as you imagine, and poor judgment may be your undoing. It’s ok to slow down. We are all on God’s time. Illusion and confusion, intentional deception, could take you on a wrong lead for a time. If necessary, admit your mistake, get help if necessary, and get back on track. Some of these experiences will strengthen you. You won’t fall prey again, and you will guide others away from these traps. The other side of that same coin is a breakthrough! Your perception may be so heightened you can see like never before! You are guided to do the perfect right thing at the right moment. Blessed be. If you are in water sports, you could be the impassioned winner, the hero of the day!

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16° factors in your charts! The Libra New Moon Oct 8 started a 7 month series of New Moons at 15° of their signs. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15° midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. This one in Sagittarius will square the one in Pisces and trine the last one in Aries. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. The master Capricorn Solar Eclipse Jan 5, 2019, however, the first 2019 lunar event, will be midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs in the series! A lot will hinge on his decisions and influence the remaining three, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries.

Saturn is still making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit.

Pluto is still pondering, likely will be strongly for a couple more years, how he took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! He now, Kundalini and Phoenix style, is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! It will be an ongoing responsibility to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. 

This New Moon is strengthening our purpose. It’s about making meaningful and realistic plans about things that matter to our future. It’s the walk of a lifetime.

Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde 2018 Face Cup Fingers Flowers

The Mercury Mind Combined with Venus Art! What a Cup of Tea!

About retrogrades! 

Whether ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle.

Venus, Libra’s own planet is first! Her complete cycle spans Sep 2 to Dec 17! Mercury follows, his complete cycle Oct 28 to Dec 24, Christmas Eve. Venus goes direct, forward Nov 16 as Mercury starts his retrograde the very same day in Pacific time! Venus starts in her own sign Libra, goes forward into Scorpio, turns Rx in Scorpio. She is predominantly in Scorpio. Mercury starts in Scorpio, goes forward into Sagittarius, retrogrades in Sagittarius, predominantly in Sag! Not only are these Rxs linked back to back, but both planets spend time in Scorpio, making it the pivotal sign between them.

Three signs! Venus establishes awareness of the value of Libra and Scorpio, both relationship signs. She whispers sweet things to Mercury the Messenger! He can’t resist spreading the word, thinks and thinks about what she said as he goes along. Each time he tells the story it is a little bit different, maybe a bit bigger too, LOL! He uses Scorpio wisdom to jump start Sagittarius. Sag wants the meaning of things, especially those things! He makes plans for it to come true! Where Scorpio, knowing the darker side, doesn’t alway trust, Sagittarius trusts Scorpio to remove the greatest encumbrances. Sag has faith all will become well no matter what. He is an excellent Pathfinder and the best ways will be found! He’s good at finding them.

Venus Retrograde Oct 5, Direct Nov 16 Pacific!

Venus Retrogrades from 10 Scorpio 50 back to 25 Libra Oct 5 to Nov 16. The whole three part cycle starts Sep 3, finishes Dec 17. Venus is in her own sign Libra loving beauty, gracing relationships, making introductions, dancing, appraising and balancing values, organizing gatherings. Venus in Scorpio wants more. More return on investment, a deeper relationship, beauty is not required. She depends on her inborn charisma to get her through the dark scary places and dares to go there. Do not underestimate her. Her love is a healing all its own.

Venus retrograde hostesses the Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and the remarkable 10 DAY sequence that event starts! She is retrograde 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 Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side Nov 8 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.

Being retrograde, Venus goes back to connect any people conduits still needing to be made. The connections are necessary for Mercury Retrograde to go back to share all the exciting information that has been scooped and gathered – especially about the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Libra and Scorpio both are people oriented signs. Libra is social, often holds gatherings in behalf of a cause. It has charm, grace, and understands local and international etiquette. Libra is often involved with anthropology, museums, world arts, plays and symphonies. Scorpio knows your secrets and hopes to make $ with you, love with you, or heal you from the inside out! They are masterful at transformation, have remarkable recovery powers! Mercury will be in Scorpio twice while Venus is, so its a direct transference, specifically when Mercury conjuncts Venus Oct 15! You might connect with a kiss!

Venus makes no aspects during her retrograde cycle. Mercury makes only two aspects during both their entire cycles and both those aspects are to VENUS! Sep 3 Mercury sextiles Venus during the first of the three phases at 25 Leo/Libra 33. They conjunct Oct 15! These back to back retrogrades are indeed linked!

Classic Venus Rx carefuls are don’t expect new relationships to be forever. Be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Better to wait on beautification projects ie remodels, painting your home that color, purchasing a home, new wardrobes, related investments, cosmetic surgery, hair color changes. MAKE BACKUPS OF ALL YOUR DESIGN WORK AS YOU GO ALONG during Venus Rx, but especially during Mercury Rx!

Remember, where our attention goes, our energy flows! We don’t mind when good things come back to us – especially in Venus Rx! A retrograde can find the favorite sweater we misplaced, an old sweetheart may return (be cautious), a beautiful design may continue to be revised, to get better and better! Breaking up is hard to do in Venus Rx. It’s just not over yet and may be fully saved though least expected. Focus on the positives.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 16, Direct Dec 6 Pacific!

Venus asks ‘Who Loves you Baby?’ Mercury says ‘What?!’ It’s down to love and money and whether you sign the papers or not! Venus loves the sensuousness of relationships – body beautiful, exquisite art, intricate sequences and blends of symphony sounds, intricate cultural anthology, and right on down to the fine local handshake with someone you just meet! Venus connects us person to person. Mercury connects your minds, a thought to a thought. It’s not what you say but how you say it. Listening is just as important as speaking, hearing heart to heart. The Venus people connections, and connections with the greater world around us, will expand Mercury’s capacity, his scope of mindfulness, give him a more sophisticated outlook, a greater capacity of attention! Limitless, really.

This last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 retrogrades from 13 Sagittarius 29 back to 27 Scorpio 16 Nov 16 to Dec 6. The three part cycle starts Oct 28, finishes Dec 24, Christmas Eve! Mercury starts in Scorpio, attending to what ails us and the power within us! Secret alliances may be made, but eventually, Mercury will spill the beans. Be ready to make the most of that. Have your explanation script ready and use the revelation to our betterment. Keep your documents handy and facts at your fingertips. If you have been wanting to talk with someone for a long time, this may be your opening. Rxs are good for reviews, but not final resolutions. Share, but don’t sign. In Scorpio don’t be surprised if you are masterfully seduced, but it would truly be better to wait until you know this person well or until you see more of how the situation comes out after Dec 6. If you invest, make it so you can back out instantaneously, or wait. An old health matter may come up again and this a perfect time to take care of it, get to the root. Or, research it, then, with your astrologer, set a surgery date a week or so after Dec 6. Double check security systems before, during and after Mercury Rx in Scorpio.

In Sagittarius there are trip itinerary mix-ups, the plans change, the school, courses and instructors don’t pan out. There can be weight gain as we snack mindlessly while we nervously try to make a decision. Health matters involve something that is too much, too big, hips/thighs. We can pull a muscle just having a great time or racing. Not fair. Gambling can be a too much. Horses, big dogs, be careful. Photography blunders of panoramic vistas may appear to be a mistake, but later prove to be valuable for something you didn’t realize was in the image! Keep them all! Opportunities may come back in an unexpected way. Wait to see more, yes, until after Dec 6.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall though. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Even then, have a backup plan.

Sagittarius has such optimism! It may be just too good to be true, or Sag may be just so lucky as to succeed against the odds! We may find that lost winning lotto ticket! That would be ok! You may feel to revive your blog. Things have changed and you’ve got great new stuff to say. People can use that info! Resubmit for publishing. Play with the idea of going somewhere you have always wanted to go. Bet there’s a way you can do it! Good luck!

Mercury, not Rx yet, is at 29 Scorpio when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! But 9:39 PM Pacific that evening it goes into Sagittarius! Mercury’s main job this time, and during the following Rx, is much more important than the usual mixing up your travel plans! It follows not only Venus Rx, but the major Pluto/Ecliptic event TEN day sequence! Some of those whose charts are connected will be reeling! Mercury is ordained to be the Messenger of what that all means, from deep and dark to the brilliant light of the Sun! It’s a perfect job for Mercury in Sagittarius! Sag automatically sees the best of things, the perspective of past to future, collects the data, makes the plans, and with faith filling its heart, teaches the Way! That is especially important because the last event of the 10 day sequence is Jupiter going into its own sign, Sagittarius!

This Venus Retrograde is important not just for being retrograde, but for hosting the intense 10 day Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic sequence Oct 30 to Nov 8 (in RED below)! She makes double sure significant changes are made. Since their cycle aspects overlap, here is the entire timetable:

Sep
Venus, Libra’s planet, starts her Retrograde cycle in Libra!
3  Mercury sextile Venus
9  Venus Scorpio
9  Virgo New Moon

Oct
Venus Retrograde
8  Libra New Moon
9  Mercury Scorpio
15 Mercury conjunct Venus Rx at 8 Scorpio 50
23 Happy Sun in Scorpio!
28 Mercury starts Retrograde Cycle
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic
30 Mercury Sagittarius
31 Halloween
31 Venus Rx back into own sign Libra

Nov
1 Jupiter trine Chiron
6 Uranus retrograde back into Aries
Scorpio New Moon
7 Jupiter inconjunct Uranus
8 Jupiter into his own sign Sagittarius! 

16  Venus Direct (forward), Mercury Retrograde

Dec 
1  Mercury Rx back into Scorpio
2  Venus Scorpio
Mercury Direct (forward)
6  Sagittarius New Moon
12  Mercury Sagittarius
17  Venus finishes Retrograde Cycle
24
  Mercury finishes Retrograde Cycle

You may be a bit exhausted after this entire 4 months long sequence. Sometimes it takes even longer as what was brought up needs time to be integrated into your now different way of living! Will life ever be smooth again? Of course! Then you will wish for some changes and you know they will come!

Be sweet and keep telling our story! It’s in your hands.

Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!

Aries, Bright Blessings

Aries Bicycle Transit System Hardwicke

Toronto Architect Chris Hardwicke wants to do something about it! In 2006 he proposed “a high speed, all season, pollution free, ultra-quiet transit system that makes people healthier. Using an infrastructure of elevated cycle tracks, velo-city creates a network across the City.” It saves transportation costs. No flood, no mud! No ice! Safety from cars. Details! Current comparisons

Lead the way, Aries! We are happy to follow! If it’s new, let’s do it! Take a quick breath, a happy shout, and off we go! Alone or together! To work or for pleasure!

No sitting around; if you think it, do it! Aries are often lean and strong. They eat less and are more active, or eat more and are even more active! Envy.

Aries are quick to create solutions, especially if they are mechanical. They easily fix their own bikes on the road. They are the first to help and the first there! Because they are first, they learn a lot about how to be there in any and all conditions. They are swift to assess, adjust quickly as things change. Emergencies are their specialty whether in the boardroom or on the road.

They are downright brilliant and inspirational! Your only spiritual duty is to keep up or let them go! They need to be physical. Independent. That all can be tough on relationships. There needs to be a ton of respect that goes both ways. Better to have that 6 month engagement than the impetuous marriage that imprisons one or both of you. Yes they are impressive, but that doesn’t mean you can have one. But if you can, what a ride! They will get you on your feet in no time!

Sometimes they can get there faster on their bike than you can drive there! In this world today, sustainability is essential. Less pollution. Lower costs – no auto insurance, gas costs, expensive auto maintenance. Lower cost of living for greater numbers of elders. Much better health for active people with less health costs, more productive time. Get clean air up your nose, oxygenate your brain, get your blood moving! Or gear up on that stationary bike at home! There are so many kinds of bikes these days! Lightweight, skinny tires/fat tires, shopping bikes with carrying devices for groceries, kids, grandkids! Fold-up space savers to take traveling, treadles, tricycles for elders, electric! Many cities now have networks of safe bike lanes, bike stations with showers and storage for commuters with repair services available. Ride your bike!

Financially, Aries may be here and gone, a crack consultant! They come in with fresh eyes and because they get around and are experienced, they have solutions that work, adjusted perfectly to your needs, and can be implemented quickly, often for low cost. They may instantly see the value of startups and get in on the ground floor. Innovative businesses catch their eye; they may be starting one themselves! If you are following their lead but are more conservative, put in a trial amount to see how it goes. If it’s on, add more! Some Aries like heat and call the shots as fine chefs – baking, amazing meals, truly one of a kind. Or you might see them delivering freight or compost on their special freight bike, or racing at top speed as a city bicycle messenger or taking people on astonishing bike tours all over the world! Awesome!

Yes, I’ve said a lot about bikes here. Just take this healthy template and pop yourself or your dear Aries into it and change the scenario a bit. Main things are being energetic and innovative! Being the leader! Using your intelligence quickly!

Prevention and protests may show the courage an Aries brings to bear. They see the need to keep some things from happening, or assure the progress of others. They are no strangers to the front line. They are clever and innovative with slogans and posters.

Now if we do talk about health matters when things go south, I recommend wearing safe clothing and a helmet! Bumping your head is an Aries matter. Don’t take chances with your Aries kids! Yes, you have to wear a helmet. I love you. Headaches do happen, high fevers can come quickly. Blood may be involved, cuts, road rash, scrapes. Carry bandages. Safety glasses for fiery or dangerous work like soldering fine jewelry. Treat your eyes well when outdoors, maybe good shades. Avoid stimulants, hot spicy foods and alcohol. You already have high energy and at times a temper. Get rest, eat more slowly. Carry that water bottle and stay hydrated!

The worst malaise is if they lose their Spirit. That’s sad to see. Give them some time, get them out when you can. Take them places where things that might inspire them are happening. They will usually be back pretty quickly. Could be time for a new bike or off road vehicle. You see, they are generally not people who go chronic. It’s quick, fierce, and over, back on their feet. Good to know that few Aries are into addictions. Who has time?

Aries can be extraordinarily romantic, and sometimes it’s quick! Exciting to say the least! You may be swept off your feet by your hero/heroine! It is so worth the adventure!

Aries Road Trip National Parks Utah Spectacular Rt 12

What is more better than a spring road trip to start your new year?! Take Utah Route 12 winding between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon national parks. The 124-mile strip has funky small towns, steep sandstone canyons and bluffs of purple sage. Tackle the narrow cliff-hanging ridgeline road called The Hogback. Stop at Hell’s Backbone Grill, which has its own organic farm!

We are now, since Nov 11, on our way to the fourth aspect of a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018! Jupiter sextile Pluto has a strong focus since they are traveling closely together now through April!

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Aries’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifts from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus May 15! They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!

With the multiple sign changes and retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

Things are HOT this Aries mid April as Chiron makes the first sign change, into ARIES!  Jupiter sextiles Pluto April 14. The next day Mercury in ARIES turns forward from retrograde, the New Moon is in ARIES the same day! Chiron makes its switch April 17! Not only is it hot, but it is an intense closely spaced sequence! Put on your dancing shoes! Let’s roll! And this is only the beginning! Apropos for Aries!

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 20 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Aries is generally no whiner. They may complain when they are slowed down or something gets in their way. But they can quickly sidestep an dodge. But Pluto in Capricorn may entirely anticipate that. Aries and Capricorn don’t always get along smoothly. The project has to be more important than their egos. Aries and Pluto can be at odds. Aries generally does not sneak around and Pluto is the best at it. However, if you want to catch ’em coming and going, this pair can do it! Aries is the baby, the initiate, a younger with the freshest Spirit. Fuddy duddy elder behavior dampens their innovative adventures. And Cappies want to get the job done on time, mostly by the book. Ok. Ok. If Capricorn’s mentoring can help Aries get that adventure going smoothly and successfully, Aries is grateful. Give your Aries plenty of praise! After all, you couldn’t get those new things added to your repertoire and done without them! Together they can bring it home, well done, in jig time!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 17 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces sees and dreams the vision, has empathy for those who suffer. Sometimes they need rescuing themselves, from being overwhelmed by what they see, from sadness that brings them down. If anyone can call them back, here comes Aries, with infectious Light, a keen spirited way, undaunted. Up on your feet, try this, let’s go here, and has one idea after another worth pursuing. If nothing else, it’s entertaining! But next thing you know you are happy to go with them. Natural leaders! What you dream, they find a way to DO! Neptune/Pisces can dampen things, and that’s not always bad. Too fiery and people feel blasted or burned and back away, of course. Neptune is so sensitive, use them like a canary in the coal mine. Adjust your volume to a more gentle level. If Neptune can step up with you, you can step down a bit. More syncopatic.

Uranus covers 26 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In fire sign Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Air sign Aquarius may find Taurus earth a little heavy. The Bull is big and on the ground. Earth as a medium is perhaps more a collector of goods than Aquarius flying lightly over the land. Earth is dense compared to air. It’s a slowdown, a filter. But soil organisms need oxygen to function. AQ is about as complex as it gets, multileveled. Taurus will call for usefulness in daily living. Mother Earth will need her champions, for land, water, the trees that breathe for us, and rare exotic animals. AQ can do the job, plying the computer, organizing banking and funds, gathering groups of groups for the greater good. Temps may lower a bit, but be earthquake prepared. Pick safe places to live and do business.

Aries is fascinated by these shifts. A more independent lifestyle may be in the offing. Farmers, foodies, have always been independent. More new ways will be found on how to feed people. Protecting sacred Earth places and her resources will call Aries to stand for her. Aries will be letting people know more about living in harmony with earth changes, and how to place structures, build sustainably will be a perfect challenge. Young people today will see the possibilities. Elders will be swept along and be glad for it!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 28 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries initiates. Chiron enters Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Aries can be impatient with the Chiron concerns, Pisces fears or sensitivities. Or inspired with the healer’s visions and ready to fight for them! Aries may call upon the intuitive insights, be guided by them. Aries may realize there is value in observation and contemplation, but Aries quick action in the moment is what we count on!

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will be Aries’ turn to be happy there is a Dr in the house! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! The Doctor is coming and Aries is right beside him or leading the way! They are in instant harmony. If Aries needs healing, they will get right too it and Aries will be happily on his way. Innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. Chiron will show him new ways to do business, how to have relationships best suited to his Spirit, how to teach on the fly! 9 Years! They will congratulate each other for all the accomplishments – if they have time, LOL!

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn now through April 2019. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through April 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in earth sign Capricorn challenges and is challenged by fiery Aries! But then Aries loves a challenge, though this one is more than five minutes! Saturn is the old guard, the elders, the ones in authority. Aries, however, just keeps coming back, not especially afraid of seemingly invincible powers, not taking ‘No’ for an answer! Saturn does have some time tested working points that Aries comes to appreciate and respect. If Saturn’s goals are ones Aries can get behind, Aries will lead the way, clear the path, make connections to bring it through. If Saturn controls too much, a younger Aries’ spirit may be crushed. There are limits. Guidance, to let them do as they need to be themselves, to do it well, to support rather than block, has sweet results. And Aries too needs to learn working limits. Pushing the right amount, in the right places, at the right time pays off, and Saturn is the Master!

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is a fire planet friendly to fire sign Aries. Aries is upfront; Scorpio usually works more behind the scenes unless they in their boardroom! Aries can be their point man, one they can count on for a quick rescue, or the one they silently groan about when they see, that battles them every inch of the way. Aries may think of Jupiter in Scorpio as the big shadow that could steal their life, or know that teaching and healing are available where you might have least expected it. If Jupiter hits a mean streak in Scorpio, it might be wise to avoid them, stand back, wait for change to come from another direction. Sometimes you just can’t do it all yourself. If your causes are the same, see how you can fit in to help. Jupiter sees the benefit of many fronts and resources. An innocent Aries may be shocked and inspired at the same time when they see how things work behind the scenes. It’s a bigger world than we thought! Their toolbox is expanded.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, and Aries can have a great time! They can travel together, Jupiter taking Aries further afield! Jupiter may take the train, Aries brings their bikes to use at the destinations! Spontaneous play and Aries may lead the way! Aries is into prowess while Jupiter figures out what things mean, where they fit in the world, enriching Aries’ point of view, raising their standards. They may travel in behalf of a philosophy they mutually support, or to a remote temple. Jupiter loves to teach and Aries does by showing how it’s done! Each are generally quite healthy. Any dangers and Jupiter’s luck comes into play while Aries dashes safely out of the way. Relationships come and go like the flash fire signs have! Sagittarius wants to be free to go, and Aries loves their independence. Love these handsome and beautiful people while you can. You will be inspired and find more time to frolic! Oh, yes.

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

Second Full Moon in March, Blue Moon!
Mars/Saturn, Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron 29 Pisces/Sheat!

Saturday Mar 31 at 5:37 AM Pacific, 10 Libra/Aries 45

Full Moon Raven by Girard

Wanderer’s Moon by Francois Girard. The magical Raven, a deeply mythic creature full of mystery and playful surprise! The knot work is inspired by Viking art.

Some call the second Full Moon in March the Crow Moon. It’s a Moon of deeper seeking. Among our relationships balance and unions are sought. In our Spirits, we master the realms above and below, air and earth, sunrise and sunset, firelight and darkness.

Moon in Libra is quite interested in these balances. We are looking for a working agreement, acceptance of differences – personal and cultural, each offering their own special talent. Beauty and comfort count. A lovely home matters as a gathering place for family and friends. Community law guides and keeps us safe. Women strive for equality. Libra enjoys political skirmishes as long as it is a fair fight.

Libra is ruled by Venus, who has just moved into her other sign Taurus. Taurus is steady, sometimes stubborn, generally patiently kind and supportive, even financially. There is a concern for being naturally healthy with radiant beauty like nature’s flowers. Good values are stabilized. Touch and comfort are given as possible. Massage and yoga make sense. As Venus goes by, appreciating our efforts, people relax and feel safe to listen to each other, find the good in what they each have to say.

Sun/Mercury in Aries, are on fire, independent, fearless leaders of heart and mind! Aries will take up Libra’s battle as a front line soldier of Light! Sun is teacher, generous, bold, in Aries, fresh! Mercury speaks quickly and to the point, in Aries often not mincing words. The invitation to do new, more and better is cast upon the wind and other people of courage respond to the call. Moon in Libra, the old pro, courts their intelligence, buffers and blends outspoken opinions, pulls the best ideas together, goes back and forth to get a working team, escorts them to the next level! The project takes off!

At various previous times they all were square Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. With Mars in Cap there is rewarding efficiency, getting the job done early and well. With Saturn there is restraint, consideration of the rules, cultural needs and respect, matters of age and wisdom. Now that Moon/Sun & Mercury are past this pair, they are off to meet new people, work on their own with constraints they have accepted, or with others as makes sense. They are more focused, mindful of priorities and the time it really takes. They keep the long term in mind.

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE  April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered. See more about the Sign Change!

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

Scheat, however is usually depicted differently. Robson said with Neptune (in Pisces): Prominent in inventive, occult or psychic matters, persecuted, peculiar domestic conditions, many accidents, danger of drowning. Ebertin more kindly says: Tied up with ‘malefics’, this could lead the native to lose his life in catastrophes, such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe suicide. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people, it can have a positive effect on their mental creativity, if these people are ready to receive such inflow.

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

3) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, 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.

NEW MOON – Jupiter/Pluto, Mercury Direct!
Uranus Conjunct, Double Stelliums, Chiron Sign Change, Galactic Center!

Sunday April 15 at 6:57 PM Pacific, 26 Aries 02

2018 Aries New Moon Mercury Direct, Jupiter Sextile Pluto

There is a certain element of Ascension to this New Moon. It embraces many new beginnings, invites us to reach for so much more.

New Moons are often thought to be quiet. For water and earth signs that might be true, but not this one! Aries is the roman candle of the zodiac! They might burn bright and take a break, but they are back up soon again, lighting the night! Yes it may be dark out there, but all the better to see the contrast of night and bright! And for this New Moon, conjunct Uranus, the planet of AQuarius and the stars in the heavens, it’s going to be wild, admirably unpredictable, sudden and astonishing, unprecedented! Unforgettable. Your friends need to be there! Too good to miss, and to help you if you need it!

Moon feels his/her way about avoiding danger, soothing the troops, keeping everyone hydrated. She is quick to intervene if things get too hot. Sun may be strutting about a bit, feeling his oats, proud of his prowess. Not everyone may agree and that could be a tad prickly. But he is big hearted and may sing the praises of others as well. He wants to lead and lift them up.

An Aquarian/Uranian type who blows in may be so interesting everyone forgets their own pet peeves, and are enthralled by this remarkable stranger among them. Aquarians are often humanitarian in spirit. Intelligent beyond mere words. They can be so over your head you think they are crazy, but they may just be way further along the track than we are. They are evolutionists, in a manner of thinking, time travelers, almost as if they are from other worlds. And who’s to say they aren’t?! They can be oddly detached observers, seems like they don’t care, yet everything means something or they wouldn’t be hanging out. It’s a limbo stasis, suspense, waiting to see what happens. Gives everyone some time to think before….. If the unusual happens, take your time if possible. Could be worth the pause.

This condition of awakening Uranus brings may help us see a broader palette.

  1. April 13-16 We have Double Stelliums at the NEW MOON! 3 Planets in Capricorn – Saturn, Mars and Pluto plus 4 planets in Aries – Mercury and Moon/ Sun/Uranus! Capricorn the old, traditional, and the new, new, new!
  2. April 17-19  Moon has left Aries, Chiron has entered Aries maintaining the 4 planet Aries stellium!
  3. April 14 is the 2nd Jupiter sextile Pluto that has been continuous since the first one in January! See more
  4. The 15th is this New Moon trine the Galactic Center and Aries MERCURY DIRECT! Mercury is holding an 8 day station April 11 to 18. That’s a tremendous absorption, anchoring and focus!
  5. April 17 Chiron changes signs from Pisces to ARIES! It will be in Aries with Uranus for 28 days!

The New Moon in Aries, Chiron’s sign change into Aries, all the planets in Aries, add up to NEW BEGINNINGS in several areas at once!
It’s quite an opportunity, may be confusing and overwhelming, and will happen with or without you! You might as well be there and contribute your part, take from it in a good way! You will be the better for it! Even if the beginning isn’t 100% perfect, you are on your way! Fresh independence sure feels good.

The New Moon at 26 degrees Aries trine the Galactic Center makes for even more marvelous changes! We may need to think bigger than ever before! It calls us to act in behalf of the greatest good we can barely imagine. Sometimes you don’t have to understand it, just do it. There are times to trust higher knowledge and your instincts. It’s bigger than we are, sees far beyond the possible future we imagine.

Mercury in Aries is square Saturn. There are going to be delays, possible censoring until this square is over the 25th. There could be doubt, fear, a lack of backup expertise. Otherwise aspects are favorable, so keep working the rest of the project. Make proposals when things are better established and fall into place now that Mercury will soon be moving forward again after its 8 day station. Breakthroughs.

The March 31 Full Moon had Chiron at 29 degrees too, and this is the last of it for now…later on there will be another period at 29 Pisces. So again:

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! During the New Moon, Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered.

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter now has sextiled Pluto April 14! As the first aspect of 2018, it set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Ms Venus at 19 Taurus is opposite the ‘critical’ zodiacal degree 19 Scorpio. That was considered a dangerous degree by oldtime astrologers. Yet people are born on that degree and live well. At this New Moon Venus is opposite Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio has the deepest longings, even extreme obsessions and a hella lot of charisma! Venus, in one of her own signs Taurus, has or wants a deep connection with her body, to be attractive no matter how she actually looks, is often possessive and loves furs, sensation, good foods, textures. She may have a melodious voice, a sweet way about her, an enchantress in her own right. Values are emphasized. The inner self seeks right relationship with our planet and peace. Jupiter seeks the Truth, power from deep within to be used in a good way, to heal, teach others how to heal. Venus brings the people in, Jupiter gets to work.

Venus is powerfully placed, grounding those who are fearful. She trines, the most favorable link, Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. There is steady depth of attention brought to bear witness. Pluto in Capricorn records the event in the archives, documents errors, corrections, progress, that others may always do better still.

Venus has left a great aspect with Mars, has admired his sensibility, he is so glad he pleased her, feels great, is rarin’ to go! Mars further ties the group together! He sextiles, opportunity, Jupiter, exact the 23rd. He conjuncts Pluto, exact the 26th! Mars is initiation, activation, ignition, leadership, action! Jupiter sees the big Path long term; Mars jumps right on it speeding up progress. Pluto in Capricorn is the internal steering committee. Mars in Capricorn speaks their language, demonstrates his proposal, corrections, updates, protocol, and they are willing to go along with him. All in all, productive with the least effort in the shortest time with the least expense!

2) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, 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.

With Uranus so strongly with our Aries New Moon, don’t miss the window, cut loose!

Jupiter sextile Pluto, traveling closely, sets the stage for three months! Just after its last aspect April 14, 2018, Chiron makes the first outer planet sign change of five in 2018 three days later on April 17. Jupiter in Scorpio hopes for the biggest and best future possible. Pluto in Capricorn wishes to heal the way, clear the path to build that future Jupiter has its sights on! They have set up a brilliant plan and part of it will be carried out by healer, business person and partner maker Chiron! See more about Jupiter sextile Pluto! 

Before Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron is in Aries April 17 to May 15, 2018! 28 Days we have two outer planets in Aries! Exchanges of information will be carried on, Uranus counting on Chiron to mend any gaps Uranus leaves behind. In effect Uranus passes the baton to Chiron!

They will again both be in Aries for 16 days in 2019 from Feb 18 to March 6. It’s a final check in and checkup. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries after its retrograde. Uranus has retrograded back into Aries, is finishing that passage, re-entering Taurus, leaving Aries March 6. Review April 17 to May 15, 2018. Polish up the details, finalize the good foundation for them in their new signs. Strong new beginnings are vital.

The Aries Mercury Retrograde cycle at Chiron’s sign change sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change forward, direct, at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 4 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them.

Chiron has a highly elliptical 51 year orbit, spending 10 years in half of the signs and 40 years in the other half! It was 7 years in Pisces, 2011-2018. It will be 9 years in Aries, 2018 to 2027.

Chiron is now finishing its zodiacal cycle, in the last sign Pisces. April 17 it enters Aries, the first sign, for a preview. It sees inspiring new ideas, what to be done next. It retrogrades at 2 Aries July 4, returns to Pisces Sep 25. The new ideas are compared with the dreams Pisces has and are intuitively scanned for how they best fit for the greatest good, and the best procedures to implement them. Chiron doesn’t turn forward until 2019, later returning to Aries for keeps.

Chiron’s nature is to heal and teach due to a mythological ongoing extreme suffering imposed by others with more power. He was unable to change that, but he was a hero! He learned so much, taught so much, in spite of this suffering. We can all do something, a kind word, recognition of that hero quality in all of us. In Pisces there is an added savior quality, one who first saves himself, best he can be the living example, that he may save others. Every day we see hundreds of loving examples. Mothers, Dads, teachers, ministers, nurses, hospice workers. Prisoners who fight fires. Builders who rebuild the lost homes. Animal rescuers. Be so aware. See that greater quality in each other that we often take for granted. Do your part best you can. You are part of the divine fabric; it’s so important you uphold your position.

Aries steps forward in a passionate blaze of Light! Chiron carries the healing forward, instantly stepping in as soon as it sees the need. It invents instant techniques, takes the chance and saves the day! Aries takes the risk when others would hesitate. They are fast in their Spirit, blessed with split second awareness, and ride their bikes! And they keep trying! Aries is not considered a sign of partnership, but the Magi astrologers consider Chiron to be the planet of marriage! Chiron in Aries might make an unprecedentedly quick move. You may not be able to resist, but if possible, give it the standard tests of time. If you don’t respond quickly enough though, they may move on without you. You might feel you made the mistake of a lifetime, or you might be so incredibly relieved you didn’t! Chiron also is considered to be a business planet by the Magi. 2018 there will certainly be a time of recovery for many – in the US, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. So many have been displaced and torn from their lives as they knew them. New businesses will be born as people collaborate to build new lives. Bless them all for the heroes they are.

Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces Sep 25

Sep 22 is Fall Equinox, the time of balancing our forces, equality. Sep 23 is the glorious Aries/Libra Harvest Moon, light in the night that calls our spirits! Aries is the first sign, independent, while Libra is working together, reunion at the end of the day to share the evening meal. Then comes Chiron back from Aries, returning to Pisces, the last sign, Sep 25. Pisces is all Souls, the All-is-One. There is the binding Unity of Being. We all live, we all die. We all sleep, we all awaken. Pisces reinforces the Union of Brother and Sisterhood, dreams we have of higher good, service to and for all.

Back in Pisces for the rest of 2018, Chiron searches the archives of Spirit, to find the core purpose for being. An ultimate compassion is further awakened. Art and music are sought as venues of expression that take us beyond words. Time is chosen for silence, listening with our entire being. Pisces takes us to sea, negative ions. We let the waves wash over our feet. We release our sorrows and fears. A subtle cleansing takes place and we are more free to see. Namaste.

Life, our part in it, has more meaning than ever. Chiron may take us back to school for a review or to bring us up-to-date. We upgrade our perception and skills. We may learn more about how to teach. There are so many techniques worldwide. It is more common now to mingle learning with spiritual or alternative techniques. Relationships are more precious. Friends, mates, business partners. Business calls for genuine encompassing caring, research showing the interconnectedness of all enterprises to us and Earth herself. It is not a time for rebuilding, but building anew. It is time for a more ultimate sustainability.

Chiron’s part in Pluto at the Ecliptic Oct 30!

Chiron is not just involved in its own sign change, but in the profound place change Pluto is making, going from above the Ecliptic to below the Ecliptic at its South Node!

Oct 30, 2018 at 5:13 PM Pacific Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! It is a phenomenal 248 year aspect! Pluto, another healer – the number one sign of therapists, the life saving midwife, hospice worker, financial wizard, and more – is getting its batteries charged at the Sun’s path through the heavens! What Pluto will do, no matter how small, is heal, cleanse, as much of the critical junctures of the Ecliptic as possible. Sun’s spiritual Lightway will be more clear and transmit more brightly. The actual time period is several years long since Pluto only moves three degrees a year, and the Ecliptic is a big place! See more!

On that day, 4:32 PM Pacific, Moon in her own sign Cancer arrives to make a Grand Water Trine with CHIRON and Jupiter, all at 28 degrees! If you have chart factors at 26 to 0, you are activated! Jupiter trines Chiron exactly Nov 1 at 4:43 PM Pacific! POTENT! Moon is comforting and nurturing, brings good food. Jupiter, considered to be a lucky planet of hope and faith, is now in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign! It boosts the entire process! It sees the broad, most inclusive opportunity, gives perspective on life and death matters, focuses on good will to all, including the darkest, almost lifeless, and the most dangerous. Chiron in Pisces is empathetic and troubleshoots the most needed spots. He will teach them how to help themselves.

Looking at 2019 after the 2018 aspects…

The final shift into Aries is Feb 18, 2019. It will take courage to take on key leadership positions to make change. Chiron will heal leaders who take on the battles to save lives, establish more equity, show us all better ways to partner, do ethical business, replace the old guard. True champions and heroes will come out of chaos.

Again, Chiron in Aries, will not be alone as Uranus finishes his last days in Aries for 84 years! They will be together. The final baton pass, for 16 days, is from Feb 18 to March 15, 2019! Chiron is healing any casualties after the wild explosion of Uranus in Aries, which literally there are. Many states in the US experienced years of drought and resultant fires. There is a completion of perusal, and some of the vital new learnings. In this case, about managing fires, our learnings are already incorporated, being used, fine tuned  and anchored for future use.

Wishing you well… So much gratitude to those of you on the front lines.

Mercury Retrograde Odeleite Portugal Blue Dragon River

The Odeleite in the municipality of Castro Marim, Portugal, aka “The Blue Dragon River!” In China this traveler’s image went viral! The mythical beast symbolizes force, quality and good fortunes. Super auspicious! 

The fiery red upper reaches lead to the elegant blue below as the river widens to the lower lake. Ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends in the river can slow flood flow. Gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare. Much like our retrogrades that weave through life!

Mercury 2018 has the standard 3 Mercury Rxs with a fire sign emphasis. Fire by nature is somewhat ungovernable. Aries just gets there fast and first, zip! Leo is himself and no other. Sagittarius will not be stopped or owned. Fire can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warms your very Soul. It raises you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

This Aries Retrograde cycle, Mercury hosts the second Jupiter sextile Pluto April 15, the day before Mercury turns forward, Direct! Mercury will be in its 8 day Station, appearing still in the sky 4 days before and after its turn, steeping in the sextile, witnessing, observing, collecting data, selecting the good points of the lucky sextile to take along to use. In Aries, Mercury will be super alert to nuances that make a quick difference. Thinking skills will improve, new tools acquired, inspiration grows 10 fold!

It also sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 2 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them. See more

This will be increased in April as Mercury sequences with Mars aspects. Mars is the Aries planet! It’s hot action! Aries is fast and first, a sprinter and bike rider. Loves doing under its own steam. It helps at emergencies and births. People get started in a new life when Aries is around and there’s no going back! Relationships may be brief, quickly renewed and just as quickly left again. You better like ’em the way they are; they aren’t famous for change. They are just independent. Mercury is the thinker, so for some, this will be an exultant time of the mind! Doesn’t matter which way Mercury is going, forward or backward, it’s a flash! Each direction is enjoyably challenging, Aries is no coward, not ever! A new vantage point is delightful and intoxicating! Great to try new things and angles! It may be good to have a financial manager you enjoy to guide the enterprises through the narrows. One enterprise is not enough or boredom sets in. And that will never last long with most Aries! The manager has to be clever enough to talk with you rather than tell you what to do. Aries hot spots are the head, the eyes. Infections, fevers, cuts, punctures, bleeding. Most illnesses are crises, not chronic. If your Aries is overweight and lying about, they likely need appreciation, encouragement and inspiration! Going up or down the retrograde turns, they will soon be curious, then just get outta their way, LOL! The switch has been flipped!

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Mar 8 at 4 Aries 46. March 22 Mercury retrogrades at mid Aries, 16 Aries 54. April 15, Mercury turns forward, April 16 Jupiter sextiles Pluto the second time. The entire cycle finishes May 3. Aries is a Cardinal sign, gets things moving. Mercury will stand up to other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn – the signs of parents and mates. In Aries, fire sign, it pushes earth signs Taurus and Virgo. It has an in with Virgo, Virgo being  Mercury’s second sign. Might even stampede them though Virgo has seen his type before. Mercury will liven the cauldrons of water signs Scorpio and Pisces. It jumps up with other fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, though Leo may not take kindly to being rousted from his lionly nap. Mercury in Aries sparks with the air signs Gemini (Mercury’s first sign), and Aquarius! How high can we fly?! And they don’t stop talking! It would take years to cover what’s on their minds! Mercury in Aries thinks in action. He may take a group on walkabout! Several of these combinations may go a bit rowdy!

If the Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – Aries especially involves vehicles, bicycles, mechanical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned trips and ventures are likely. Though it is unArieslike, schedule to keep tabs on what becomes a new moving object in your life! Be sure your important papers are securely stowed, keep valuables and sentimentals with you. Keys, glasses and bike locks secure, clothing can’t blow away. No setting things on the top of your car. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done May 3!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Aries can be spontaneous and off on a new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

The Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron into Aries, and the April Mars aspects specially imprint this Retrograde cycle! Here’s the timetable:

Mar

8    Mercury Retrograde first phase starts
10  Mercury square Saturn 1st of 3
17  St Patrick’s New Moon, Mars into Capricorn
19  Mercury conjunct Venus one time sweet day
20  Sun in Aries, Spring Equinox! Four planets now in Aries!
22  Mercury Retrograde
31  Full Blue Moon

Apr

2    Mars conjunct Saturn
4    Mercury square Mars
5    Mercury square Saturn 2nd of 3
14  JUPITER SEXTILE PLUTO
15  Mercury Direct, turns forward on New Moon! Reset!
17  CHIRON INTO ARIES 
19  Sun into Taurus!
23  Mars sextile Jupiter in Scorpio
25  Mercury square Saturn 3rd of 3
26  Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn

May  3   Entire Mercury Retrograde cycle finishes!

The last retrograde, in Sagittarius, Mercury conjuncted Saturn three times. The only repetitive aspect Mercury in Aries forms this retrograde cycle is its square to Saturn three times. It’s as if it is putting on the brakes, and we know how fast these fire signs can go! Have your brakes checked to see they are working well. Check your thinking to see if you are keeping priorities, staying on track. Allow enough time for the usual retrograde delays, breakdowns. Get a little more rest because there could be more stress than usual. You may alternate hot and cold. Layers are good.

There are two Mars activation sequences in April. The two sequences are tied together because Mars conjuncts the two planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto.

  1. April 2 Mars conjuncts Saturn. It can be a tired time, a bit down, accidental, fraught with delays and overworked. Mars wants Saturn to try his new ideas! Saturn likes his routine, but is ultimately practical and knows some ideas will be more productive. He listens to this upstart because they are in the same sign and speak the same language. He sees Mars is being careful. Yes, implementing the new ideas will take a bit more time in the beginning, but Mars in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, is good at what he does, is faster than most and quick to see what needs to be done, does it on the spot! Breakthrough! April 4 and 5, Mercury squares first Mars then Saturn. Things could get a bit grumpy, depressed, but Mercury is the messenger and is in Mars’ own sign Aries! So they can talk and then, perhaps, even together, clear up any delays due to Saturn’s technicalities. What could have failed may come through with reasonable persistence, respect and adjustments in the beginning. More can come later.
  2. The big sequence starts as Mercury turns Direct April 15 at the New Moon! Double new beginnings! April 14 Jupiter sextiles Pluto followed by Mars aspects well after Mercury is on his way forward! Mercury is making final decisions and shifts, mature in the cycle! Mars sextiles Jupiter the 23rd, Mercury squares Saturn the 25th, Mars conjuncts Pluto the 26th! Mercury square Saturn ties to the April 2 Mars conjunct Saturn. The rules and regs still need consideration. The new ideas probably need a review. Mars sextile Jupiter, conjunct Pluto reiterates and keeps the lucky Jupiter sextile Pluto cooking! Philosophy is great, action takes it home! Mars reminds Jupiter what the project is, why it’s important to DO! Mars jumps seriously in Pluto’s cauldron reminding him of his financial commitment! Without the $, Jupiter can’t get or keep it rolling! It’s worth the effort and Mars is willing to work for it. LAST is Chiron into Aries, while the Sun is in Aries, April 17! Perfect!

Aries is always up on the latest, inspired and leads the crew to install those newfangled contraptions that make your work easier, increase the returns. They are great consultants off to their next installation!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!
