Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

Switchbacks at Utah’s Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, Walter’s Wiggles! If we are going to do two retrogrades in a row, and overlapping – both at once for a week, whether descending or ascending, we might as well do it elegantly in great Beauty!

March 20 Note: Venus has been retrograde since March 4. Mercury starts Rx during Aries, April 9. Venus goes direct April 15. The DOUBLE RX is April 9 to 15!

For your advance planning ~~~ trips, moves, weddings, significant purchases, remodels, elective surgeries, investments, taxes, job changes or reviews. Venus involves your love life, money and values, art and beauty. Mercury typically has to do with signing papers, snafus of all sorts, appointments, mind changes, reversals, breakdowns, electronic failures. Retrogrades have three parts. First is the time the planet goes forward. Next is the retrograde period when it goes back over that same ground. Third is when it turns Direct, forward, and goes over the same ground the third time. Often, having a change of direction, extra work to accommodate the changes, delays, drives us crazy. Given time, from the different vantage points, and as other planets move along, we see the values in these adjustments. Without switchbacks or retrogrades, sometimes we might never reach higher ground had these events not have happened. New vantage points show us how to incorporate new facets in our lives.

Venus Retrograde

Venus sweetens from 13 Aries 8 back to 28 Pisces 54! The whole three part cycle starts Jan 30, finishes May 18 with Venus Rx Mar 4 to 15.

Venus does make beauty and kindness, money and love. Retrogrades make changes, omits, misunderstandings, mistakes, adjustments.

Venus in Pisces dreams, commiserates and blesses, is music, magic and miracles, lives for the beauty of Soul. Your understandings, beliefs and desires will shift, can even take 180 different positions and return back to your original position even wiser! The idea is to flow with the tide, rise and fall with the swells of life. Be as whole as you can, make Magic as your insights and visions carry you forward. Pisces can be a gentle sign, or the deluge of a tsunami! If things come too fast it could be scary confusion, feeling lost. Lay back on sugar and carbs. Avoid overindulging in social drugs, alcohol; arrange to have a trusted friend to see you safely home. Water sports and businesses, especially related to the ocean, can make significant changes, select new teachers.

Venus in Aries wants what it wants, now, and takes the action needed to get it! They love being first, prize being leaders, are quick super athletes, are great dancers, put in stunning performances! During the Rx you may find your style changing as to how you do these things! The warning is not to overdo it, be careful not to hurt your head or eyes. Sweet hot sex if you’re lucky! But have that sex with your established partner. Many don’t recommend first time sex during Venus Rxs. There is a quality of rebellion and you could get in trouble with dares. You may not get away with it this time, so please be careful, and try not to break the law in front of the officer!

Aries is often impetuous, but most astrologers would not pick anytime during Venus (love and marriage) Retrograde to get married, elope. Only if the compatibility charts were exceptional, both parties have exceptional progression and transit aspects at that time, and the marriage chart is chosen for the best aspects it can have that also are in splendid harmony with both birth charts. Otherwise, some unions are karmic and will be as they are.

Mercury Double Retrograde!

DURING Venus Retrograde, Mercury starts its Rx cycle, and part of its Retrograde time is during the Venus Rx time! So we have a double Rx April 9 to 15! This is a wee bit of a complicated time with two overlapping cycles and Venus and Mercury each changing signs as well. Mercury will move through 24 Aries 15 to 4 Taurus 50. Mercury is Rx April 9 to May 3.  It makes sense to see your astrologer for details about how this activates your personal chart.

At the time of the double Rx, Venus will be in Pisces, Mercury in Taurus. The degrees are not close, so they will be operating independently of each other. That means in two different houses of your personal chart, possibly even four houses, will be activated. They may act together for you depending on the personal linkage of your planets.

Mercury in Aries is quick to see what’s happening, often distracted, maybe jumps to conclusions, or it’s all in your head. Its speed can save lives, tilt the world in a new direction, blitz by old hurdles! It can be impatient, angry, get down to head butting! Get going or get outta my way, but mainly it just wants to do things! It is a leader that inspires confidence! New projects may finally be undertaken, or fail because they are ahead of their time, there are more considerations than realized. Plant your seeds then plant more seeds! Caution signing papers, even if an expert advises it. This is likely not the time to be impetuous. If you are never impetuous, maybe you should give it a try! Do your best.

In Aries it is very likely not the time to do electional face surgery, elope, buy a new car or mechanical items. If you can wait, fix the furnace or air conditioner later. Be careful about head bumps, your brain/skull, eyes. Put in fire alarms well before the retrograde.

Mercury in Taurus takes its time, maybe too much time, but is the most stable of these four combinations. Sometimes it resists change and is thrown off by shifts in routine. Yet, if Taurus has become tired without realizing, changes may be just what the Dr ordered! Your land may change, your garden, your flowers, trees – earthy things. Taurus is your neck, throat and thyroid. If there are any questions, have a checkup in advance, especially if singing or entertainment is important to you. In general, Taurus is ownership and a solid untouchable bank account, but what we want may surprisingly change during this Rx. A generous gift may be expected and you might have a dilemma about what, how much, or whether to give.

If you make investments, do only test amounts during both retrogrades because Venus (money) is Taurus’s planet. Your thinking about what is attractive can easily change. Not a time to buy a new wardrobe, furnish your home, do a remodel or buy a comfortable car. Whatever you buy, get receipts, buy from well standing companies with excellent return policies, get the warranty. If you sign papers include a review clause so it can be changed, canceled or extended within a reasonable time. You set the time for your next job review time.

Mercury stations with Uranus April 27 to May 9! Super intelligence, a friend returns and leaves again.

Plan what you can, the Creator will do the rest. Good luck and Grace be with you.

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

 

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians!

Aquarius Oprah Winfrey Air Sign at Grand Canyon!

Oprah at Grand Canyon ~ magnificent, majestic and sacred! She has dubbed 2017 the YearOfAdventure, so she’s exploring the great wide open and inviting you to do the same!

Jan 29, 1954 Oprah Winfrey arrived on the planet and has become a known part of the planet. From obscure small beginnings she has risen, become the first woman in history to both own and produce her own talk show. Many of you know much of her achievements – influential book critic, an Academy Award-nominated actress, magazine publisher. She is also, according to several assessments, the most influential woman in the world.

What many don’t know is Aquarians are great bankers! And Aquarius is the sign that follows Capricorn, the sign of career, making Aquarius the receiver of the spoils! Having that wealth gives the opportunity for sponsoring community work and international organizations. Oprah holds the distinctions of being the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and the world’s only black billionaire for three straight years! 2.9 billion USD (2017) Forbes

Venus conjunct her Sun gives beauty and money! They and her Mercury in Aquarius trine her Jupiter in Gemini give her super intelligence, a quick wit, a broad view and more money! The Moon in Sagittarius was born to go places, cross cultural gaps, be a natural teacher! Jupiter and its sign Sagittarius are optimistic, see far ahead, are lucky in their pursuits! And it’s fun! Aquarius and Sagittarius are in combination, signs that need freedom and often don’t marry. She has been with her boyfriend Stedman Graham since 1986; they spend a lot of time apart and have never married.

Venus with the Sun gives self indulgence, a love of sweets and carbs. Aquarians aren’t famous for calorie burning exercise, nor is Venus unless it is dance. Her Mars in Scorpio square Pluto in Leo can block exercise through embarrassment, need for privacy, physical discomfort. She has been a brave woman publicly facing these challenges that so many scorn. Yet these same placements have also helped her break many financial barriers!

Oprah’s latest book Food, Health And Happiness is now available at Amazon: ‘Oprah Winfrey will be the first to tell you, she has had a complicated relationship with food. It’s been both a source of delight and comfort for her, but also the cause of an ongoing struggle with her weight. In Food, Health, and Happiness, Oprah shares the recipes that have allowed eating to finally be joyful for her. With dishes created and prepared alongside her favorite chefs, paired with personal essays and memories from Oprah herself, this cookbook offers a candid, behind-the-scenes look into the life (and kitchen!) of one of the most influential and respected celebrities in the world. Delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare, these are the recipes Oprah most loves to make at home and share with friends and family…a taste of happiness, a ritual to be shared, a toast to life!’

Remember, she has proclaimed 2017 the Year of Adventure. She says ‘Try different restaurants. Take a class on something new. Be challenged. Get stimulated. Have some fun! And redefine what fun means for you.’

Astronomy Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Feb 10, 11 2017

Thanks to Sky & Telescope for this image!

Per Sky & Telescope: ‘The beginning and end of a penumbral eclipse are not visible to the eye. In fact, no shading can be detected until about 2/3 of the Moon’s disk is immersed in the penumbra. This would place the period of eclipse visibility within about 3/4 hours of greatest eclipse (about 00:00 to 01:30 UT1). Keep in mind that this is only an estimate. Atmospheric conditions and the observer’s visual acuity are important factors to consider.’

It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely at mid eclipse for deep penumbral shading on the northern half of the Moon closest to the Umbra!

The Pacific time for the Eclipse is 4:33 PM, but best viewing times are different!

Penumbral eclipse begins: 2:34 p.m. (on February 10)
Greatest eclipse (nearest umbra): 3:44 p.m. (on February 10)
Penumbral eclipse ends: 6:53 p.m. (on February 10)

For how to convert UT to your own local time, see Time Zones and Universal Time.

Enjoy watching!

2017 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aquarius!

Aquarius Big Skies Space Freedom Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler, self described scrambler ChrisW

Big skies, great space gives an Aquarian room to move around! On a clear day you can see forever. Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler self described scrambler ChrisW

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Aquarius has no such attachments as Pluto does, not known for obsessions, compulsions. Aquarius is Capricorn’s neighboring sign ahead. Capricorn built the structure so Aquarius can be free to meet there, contemplate and organize community groups, world networks to update old ways, invent new channels! Aquarius is the last Air signs. Gemini is our personal breath of Life. Libra is the breath and air among us, living relationships. Aquarius is the planetary air above us that we fly in, that unites us all. Resources are intentionally directed to make the world a better place.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It 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 cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Aquarius is the sign before Pisces, that transmits the Word on the winds across the world, through the internet. It breathes the beliefs of Pisces through us so all may know what needs saving. Timeless visions are to be awakened with magical words. Right at home, friend to friend, profound matters are discussed looking for unusual approaches that will shake us from our sleep! Neptunians understand our oddities and the language of the future, have an uncanny knack for seeing where to go and why! They are happy to be our Guides, sensitive to every nuance.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through January 2018. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. ChangeMaker Aquarius feels right at home with this visitor of his own kind, ever moving, inspired and inspiring! Aries is First, is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Not only do they have the ideas, but they get put into action! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries just might keep up! Aquarius likes speedy sports, air inclined, but their weakness is the think tank blues, sitting entranced at that keyboard, inventing or sneaking in a computer game here and there! Aries gets them outside, demanding better food to support the mountain hike in fresh clean air!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees, but in Pisces through January 2018. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aquarius incorporates all kinds of electronics into our modern medicine, from digital thermometers to taking a ride in the body scanning machine at the hospital! Research is one of their businesses, innovative solutions can succeed where old remedies didn’t work well enough. Neptune might recommend meditation, relaxation, transformation through doing work you love, something meaningful. Aquarius couldn’t agree more! They know that freedom is Being, true to your core. Though Pisces the Magician might wish for fairytale romance, Aquarius may wish for freedom more. Chiron can help them see how a partnership with someone who is comfortable to let them come and go on whim or airline schedule, is bright like they are, or simply gentle, kind, patient, grounding and admiring, could work quite well!

Saturn travels from 21 degrees Sagittarius to 3 degrees Capricorn in the year ahead. Aquarius enjoys a good trip with business compadres! They can go to meetings to promote special projects for sustainability, improve laws for more people, build universities, contribute computer gear for students or seniors! People of different cultures will add their values, innovations, manners and customs that improve well being. Bonds may be formed over distances, territories realistically expanded. Aquarians may find themselves quite comfortable in a business that intrigues them. They are more willing to take care of themselves because they have good reason!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, there will be more traditional endeavors. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Rules, responsibility, respect for elders called for. Aquarius can see how this is favorable. Long term means choosing what makes sense for our environment, to protect the future for our children, build and select systems that favor seniors. Aquarius will be hard pressed to keep up with inventions for the needs of the people! Research may bring some medical breakthroughs.

Those of you with Saturn 21 Sag to 3 Cap will be having your Saturn Returns, a 29 year event! Saturn can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements in that 29 years! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Sagittarius Saturn may find their travel budget lacking for the time being, or they may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Capricorn Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or start their own business! Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aquarius thrives in all that travel to far away places, meeting people who think out of the box we are used to! A travel or import business could be lucrative! Relationships may work better than usual. Libra has a certain amount of flexibility, is intelligent, and has a broader range of give and take than many other signs. Jupiter can be opinionated, but learns from inventive Aquarius and it suits them because Jupiter always has an eye to future and greater possibilities. Jupiter’s optimism is contagious and Aquarius is surprised and pleased to find a thoughtful and willing colleague!

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians! Quite an exciting and productive year coming for you!


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….

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime! Earth Girl

Angels for Earth, my title, by Roberto Campus. Roberto lives in rural Vermont, and his client list is long and famous!

Not your average citizen! Aquarians are seekers beyond small thoughts. Magical flying dragons to Angels of Magnitude, they take us there.

Above and beyond! Aquarius is an Air sign, rises above all other signs! It is the high wind that speeds along the mountain tops. It is the air that planes fly in and spaceships travel beyond!

The Aquarius double zig zag symbol is where the mountain tops meet the sky, the Aquarius Zone, where the crisp air goes straight to your brain! Freedom of the Ethers! Elevation, tall vision, in the invisible element! The Internet is a form of modern day ether, and many an Aquarian is accused of being legless in their computer chair, no exercise, no sun, not even much air! Either way, fly your hang glider or zot around the internet world whenever you are intrigued to do so! Awareness expands, awakening begins!

Electronic music is the sound of the Universe thinking ~ airy melodies that float, or ones with a fast beat that tickle your neurons. Exotic unruly out of the box jazz is inspiring and contemporary music that defies definition pleases your Soul! Music from every dimension, different cultures, with strange instruments and tonal qualities are quite comfortable. Singing, making your own music, is entirely free, and your voice may be incredibly unique.

Aquarians excel in all uncommon activities, which seem to have a magnetising effect on you! Aviation, parachuting, ballooning, hang gliding, rock climbing, pole vault or high jump, skating, skiing, and free form dance, etc. Sports with friends, or Solo hiking, especially at the alpine high-in-the-sky level refreshes your spirit. On earth, birding with friends or on your own can take you to unique places.

Inventions, innovative businesses, detached bankers and bartenders, writing, astronomy and space odyssey fantasies open gateways. Humanitarian projects to help people and/or the world are a scale you can appreciate and thrive in. That’s where you might meet your match! Someone with a consciousness that is quick with creative solutions, not afraid of your ideas and intelligence, broad in scope, life changing, keeps you connecting. It’s electric!

Because Aquarians themselves can be eccentric, odd, loners and lonely, people of all kinds, who aren’t mainstream, feel comfortable to tell them the unusual things about themselves. Aquarians are more fascinated than fearful. They often simply accept what is rather than judge it. Their friends certainly aren’t boring. Aquarians will have an eclectic group of friends who don’t necessarily enjoy each other! A research team, computer project, a mutual cause will more likely bring them together productively for a time. Then they will migrate in different directions to higher ground in a good way.

Healthwise, your body really does need food. Just as the planet needs sustainability, so do you! Go for quality food, explore what exercise you actually would like to do. Sleep as you can. Aquarians always have that hum, buzz, are plugged in to the greater world intelligence. There are places and people different beyond the average person’s wildest imagination! Stay well so you can go there! Things need doing. Be well so you can do them. Find mind changing ways to communicate your special gifts, insights. Keep your brain well fueled so it is present for the crucial moments of exchange, when the next level can be attained!

There are many Angels in disguise. Some laugh and tease us. Some are not pretty. We are enchanted by others. We know there is something right around the corner and we catch a glimpse. They hold our hands to cross the inter dimensional bridge. Some are lovers, others are the stranger you will never see again. There are everyday teachers that take us with them. Some walk, some fly, but every Aquarian is on the flight of a lifetime!

We are on the threshold of a vastly changing reality. You have a special part in its unfoldment.

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns!

capricorn-bruce-kirkby-adventurer-goats

Though many of you have never heard of Jan 8, 1968 Capricorn Bruce Kirkby, he is well known and accomplished in his field!

Per TravelChannel.com, in the world of travel, Canadian Bruce Kirkby is a jack-of-all-trades: adventurer, guide, writer and photographer. His journeys have taken him to more than 80 countries, including the wildest and most remote corners of the planet. He has crossed Iceland by foot, traveled through Mongolia by horse, been shot at in Borneo, and been taken hostage in Ethiopia.

Bruce is a weekly travel columnist for The Globe and Mail. He is the author of 2 best-selling books, Sand Dance: By Camel Across Arabia’s Great Southern Desert (2001) and The Dolphin’s Tooth: A Decade in Search of Adventure (2007).

Bruce’s work also appears regularly in publications including The New York Times, EnRoute and Time magazine, and National Geographic selected his images to be among the best adventure photography of the decade. Previously, Bruce hosted CBC’s prime-time reality show No Opportunity Wasted, for which his mission was to help regular people overcome personal fears and accomplish the seemingly impossible.

Quite a resume!

You may have seen him and his family on the Travel Channel’s series Big Crazy Family Adventure. It follows the family as they travel from British Columbia to Ladakh, India (more than 13,000 miles), by every mode of transportation except planes.

Bruce is a dedicated family man, and backpacks with GOATS – the Capricorn animal! Amid the clatter of hooves and tiny bleats, we were under way. In the 100 mile pack trip with his 4 year old son Bodi, one of the goats he selected for the trip, the snowy white one, was named Capricorn! Each carried about 30 pounds of gear. Their lightweight fabric saddles were held in place by plastic buckles, the panniers slung using Velcro and hooks. Son’s questions? Will the goats miss home? Where will they sleep? Where will we sleep? When is snack time? Read more about this precious adventure!

Yep, their families worry, but Bruce says:  Heck, I’m trying to get the grandmothers to come on more adventures with us!

New Year 2017 special! Jan 1 through 3, our waxing crescent Moon, Venus and Mars, will be lined up in our early evening sky! Look above the Moon and Venus for the red planet Mars.

The following three bring some challenges that finish 2016! It will be a complex and exciting holiday season!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. We are now in a period of adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Do your best with these six aspects. 2017 depends on it. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Capricorn!

Capricorn Builders Working Smart

Building a great New Year working smart and working together!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. 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! Perfect! Time now to roll up our sleeves, join forces, build for a sustainable future! Mid degree Capricorns will find their old debris being hauled away. Overburdened, they became forgeries of their former selves. At core, they are molten steel, reformed in strength, meeting their destiny with an exceptional resolve. Some relationships will undoubtedly be fated, debts were and are made, some paid. Healing may be hard work but worth it. Some healing will be of past painful experiences, some of skin and bones. A therapist for mind and a physical therapist for body could be worth their salt. Step through the fear.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It 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 cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! In their office Capricorn is looking over the time sheets, the return on investment. It knows how precious our efforts are, how our cumulative work adds up. Lost time affects us all as others wait for us. It learns values from those ROI sheets, what’s real. Neptune dreams a vision for Capricorn. Sensible or not, it’s a template. Capricorn builds Neptunes’ dream, magically joining studs and artfully building in stone, a gift, a diamond forever. Might be a temple, an archway through the garden, a divine wall to keep us safe, dividing local from wild, a set of keys for your new home!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Capricorn’s planet is Saturn, and they are so unlike Uranus, Aquarius. Saturn was Uranus’ son, and Saturn was the bad boy – killed his Father! Usually we think of Uranus as the heretic, perhaps unkempt, unruly unpredictable. The amazing part of the story is: The period in which Cronus [Saturn] ruled was called the Golden Age, as the people of the time had no need for laws or rules; everyone did the right thing, and immorality was absent. Capricorn in today’s astrology is still the one in charge. Uranus is the inventor, networker, internet, flight, electronics expert! Capricorn is earth; Uranus rules the heavens, and in Aries is fiery, challenging every moment! Uranus leads Capricorn the scientist into unexplored realms, in the company of super leaders. Capricorn keeps their feet on the ground, incorporating extraordinary concepts into daily life!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Traditional business and a good marriage are just right for most Capricorns. They are willing to work. Chiron in Pisces helps them see the inner workings of things, understand more subtle relationship structures, let go when necessary. Chiron calls on them to heal from deep past wounds, to teach what they learned. Chiron in Neptune principles may be idealized, but Capricorn expertly converts them to useful ways of living anyone can do while still keeping them magical!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Capricorn is Saturn’s sign, but Sagittarius is one of those quite different neighboring signs. Saturn and Capricorn are Earth. Sagittarius is easily sidetracked fire. Sag is far vision personified while Saturn has a steady unblinking here and now focus! Of course, if Sagittarius shows Capricorn the easiest path, and promises a bonus, who wouldn’t keep that focus?! Saturn in Sagittarius shows that even having fun can BE the business! Two for the price of one! Paid to play! Sag is always looking out ahead. Early course corrections can really pay off. Capricorn holds Sagittarius accountable for his grand ideas, and asks him to stick around until the project is well established.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Capricorn is not seduced by cute or merely pretty; intelligence makes a difference. They aren’t as social. Your words need to carry weight. They are not so impressed by who you know, as they are by who you introduce them too. If you represent them successfully in court they are happy to pay. Capricorns love classic art, historical documents, structures by adept artisans. Jupiter can artfully expand Capricorn’s business, and may have just the right ways of making suggestions. Capricorn needs to listen carefully and kindly because Jupiter in Libra can have good intentions and excellent advice. Jupiter in Libra has a finely tuned sense of balance, perspectives that incorporate the best of both sides. Jupiter may be a bit overblown at times in his enthusiasm, but look at the backbone of what they are saying! That’s your framework to start from!

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns! May your new year be productive and rewarding in every way!


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….

Capricorn, the Winter Magicians!

Capricorn the Mountain Goat at home in the rocks!

Capricorns, Goats, are devilishly and delightfully capricious. As youngsters, tails up, they run and leap and play at full tilt along the rock tops! They are impulsive and make unpredictable zig zag turns and twists in mid air! If you aren’t watching, it could seem devious when they sneak up on you! They are not afraid of mingling, nor easily led. They have a keen sense for BS, and will go contrary if there is a problem with morality.

Though generally obedient children and law abiding adults, there is an inbred independence, a need to be free to lead! As leaders they are free! Walking sure footedly, wherever footing is available, takes them places others never go. No wonder at times they seem to be ‘above’ us, aloof, maybe even intimidating.

With their high intelligence, command and leadership are natural. And they can back it up! They can lower their goat horns and butt their way through difficult obstacles. They can push forward past or chase off competitors and predators, defend their own! They may be exhausted, get down on their knees from time to time, but hard work is something they can do. It carries them through.

Winter Magicians! They are keen survivors that can thrive in sparse conditions, hostile or negligent situations. They make do with what is there, get through hard times. They have courage born of necessity. Perseverance and stamina are incredible, bringing successes beyond their humble beginnings. Yet, at times, remembrances and fear of falling back may bring seeming greed. Really it is their reaction to fear of starvation.

Loyal. Parents and family are important, whether their parents, particularly their Father, was there for them or for some reason couldn’t be. Many vow to be the best parents they can be, knowing what loss feels like. Being overprotective or demanding with rigid rules, implies to the child that there is much to be feared or that your child is, will not be capable, so go a little easier. Let them make a few errors and learn how to recover – another good old fashioned life skill. No shame or embarrassment necessary for an honest effort. Your children will understand the goodness of discipline, how being given responsibilities is a trust.

Cappies are generally healthy, even more so as they get older! Skeleton and bones, the knees, joints, teeth, skin, nails and scalp are your points of concern. Arthritis, rheumatism, tooth decay, crooked teeth and skin problems may plague you. Talk with vibrant experts excited about their specialty, who keep up in their field and aren’t afraid to explore alternative possibilities! See a sports doctor who is interested in more than day to day surviving and maintenance at a tolerable level! See someone who wants your above average, even exceptional health no matter what age you are! Look for experts that want to heal the cause and never have to see you again! LOL!

Capricorn works can be earth sciences and discovery, is the revered CEO, are well known stone mason artisans and remarkable builders. Working with the aged, retirement services, senior communities. Law and law enforcement. Rock and ice climbers, winter sports champions! Historical preservation, environmentalists that use natural primitive ways, low cost utilities, sustainability.

Interesting that the neighboring signs, Sagittarius and Capricorn both have 1/2 and 1/2 symbols. Sagittarius is the Centaur, half human, half horse. Capricorn is the Seagoat, half goat, half fish. Since ancient times, Capricorn was also associated with Mephistopheles, a demon featured in German folklore. And at Christmas, Capricorn’s time, we have Krampus, who scares away evil winter ghosts. He is half goat (Capricorn), half demon. These signs belong to two or more dimensions, both often quite psychic. Capricorn is a most complex sign, perhaps even the most complicated sign. It takes a special person to befriend a Capricorn or be befriended by one.

Time comes when age is an honor with wisdom and a softening. We do what we can. We do our best at the time. Super professionalism, a career, mentoring, melts into time for ourselves perhaps. A staunch by the book religion may become more personally intuitive. Black and white patterns with squares are still there, but it becomes an inner expression, a merger of the art of an adept and motivation for the engine of life.

There are so many famous Capricorns in all walks of life! Here are just a very few: Michelle Obama, Justin Trudeau, Kate Middleton, Khalil Gibran, Elvis Presley, Kevin Costner, Stephen Hawking and Nostradamus!

Blessed be! See you on the mountain!

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Birthdays, Libras!

Libra 3 Planet Stellium John Trudell

John Trudell image by Matika Wilbur/facebook.com/Project562

In honor of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, I choose John Trudell, 3 planet stellium in Libra, as our Libra Hero this year. As a Native thinker Trudell said: ‘I am a human, a member of a tribe, not a subject for corporate mining and exploitation. I don’t trust their corporate ‘democracy.’ We humans must think for ourselves. That’s what we need to give to the next generation.’ He died less than a year ago, December 8, 2015. His Spirit is still with us.

John had Neptune in Libra. You can bet he would be there to protect our precious waters and sacred land and animals and humans and children’s rights. No pipeline.

His Chiron is in Libra. He would have sought ways to heal the wounds of the land. John would have kept us updated with his broadcasts, made films to teach better ways and balance, write poetry to sway our hearts.

His Jupiter is in Libra and trine to his Aquarian Sun and Venus. He is for the people, a teacher of faith in change. He was multi gifted, a Santee Dakota Native American author, poet, actor, musician, and political activist.

Trudell served as the national chairman of the American Indian Movement from 1973 until 1979. He grew up in small towns near the Santee Sioux Reservation in northern Nebraska near the southeast corner of South Dakota. He lived in the very lands where the Sioux people still live.

In 1963 when 17 years old, Trudell dropped out of high school and left the Midwest, joining the US Navy. He served during the early years of the Vietnam War and stayed in the Navy until 1967.

Trudell had his share of suffering. His pregnant wife, three children and mother-in-law were killed in 1979 in a suspicious fire at the home of his parents-in-law on the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Nevada. At the time of Marcheline Bertrand’s death in 2007, he was in relationship with her. She was Angelina Jolie’s mom. Marcheline was the executive producer of the documentary Trudell, shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005.

Those days were different, when Trudell was most active. There was ‘revolution’ in the air with protests of all kinds – financial, love vs war/violence/hate, racial, women’s rights. There was so much fear as old ways were overturned, people looked different, mores changed. Everyone was finding a way and it certainly wasn’t peaceful. Protesters were well intentioned and unsophisticated. Massive resistance seemed to require radical behavior, and often that was what it took. Mistakes were plentiful on all sides.

John Trudell was not a perfect person, but he did what he could as he could. Whatever needs changing in your life, stand up for it!

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Libra!

Libra Let there be Peace on Earth Begin with Me

People remember how you treated them, they remember how you made them feel.

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. 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! Perfect! Mid degree Librans and Libra in general are in a challenge aspect with Capricorn. Libra is the sign before Scorpio, so by natural order, as trust develops in Libra partnerships, Scorpio feels safe to invest with them, both on a personal basis and financially. The challenge is when Libra teases their way between the Capricorn bricks to loosen the armor. Pluto can hang on until death do us part. That can be a good defense when protection is needed, or it can be a harsh and brittle punishment when stopping a flower from blooming. Stand as equals, hear each other out, give it time, come back to the table. Sometimes a bridge needs to be built, breath by breath, heart by heart.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It 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 cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Libra, a logical air sign and keen observer, sees the sensitivity of Neptune, like a canary in the mine. They are fascinated by the gift of intuition, confused by the magnitude of sorrows and the illusions of addiction. Libra usually stays clean. They don’t like losing their balance and not looking their best. They can arrange aid for the cause however, seek strong allies and advocates, lend legal assistance. Libras can illustrate equality, render a fair decision, a just compromise. They are often peacemakers in their own families at a young age.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Libra charmingly collaborates with Uranus. And it may be over tough matters like civil rights, to say nothing of animal rights, stopping extinction. It’s no accident that September 21 is International Peace Day. Uranus in Aries strives for independence, freedom of all beings. Libra seeks even more, a harmony of all beings. Traveling and education in other countries, on other continents, helps us see others ways that are quite different, often wise. Cultural diversity is invigorating, like hybridization often is! Remarkable friendships and partnerships may come.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Libra may find themselves with marriage in mind, especially while Jupiter is in Libra, but this may not be the best for late Libras. It may be a better time for them to be careful of losses, attend to problems, even if they seem to be only small nagging at the back of your mind types. Pay attention, talk about it whether it is on your side or theirs. A gentle resolution could save the day down the road. Learn more about items that come your way. Learn more about negotiating and how to kindly show others how to do it too. All these skills will do when making business adjustments too. You can be a good mechanic, but do it with a lot of heart. Be the magnet.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Libra is not a physical laborer sign, but works hard building relationships. They have a sense of refinement, an uncanny ability to see each side of a matter, to bring Spirit into alignment! Agreements can always be made from necessity or from a win/lose point of view, but when there is an underlying respect and understanding, the sting of loss, and the joy of gain makes peace in the long term.

Sagittarius and Libra are a delightful combination. They love sharing stories of the places they have been. Libra is more anthropologically inclined, Sagittarius loves the adventure! Libra is great at film making, Sag is a good subject! Sag may at times just outspokenly blunder in, while Libra is checking for local customs. Libra teaches Sag a little finesse, and Sag says don’t be shy, just do it! Seeing the advantages of both, they can pass the lead back and forth. Great teamwork for an import/export business! Libra sets up the contracts, Saturn minds the muscle to gather the goods.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. With the Sun in Libra too, it’s double time to go out and meet some good companions, enjoy some of the fruits of your labor. Go to a museum, the finest restaurants, check out some courses at the university! Your students or teacher may be from an array of cultures. Libra is remarkable with design! See if there are jobs with a cause that are open for you. You may be just the talent they are looking for! Instead of only that morning walk, you might find yourself taking dance lessons! And who knows, you may meet a sweet mate! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter Sunday the 25th at one minute before Midnight Pacific time! From noon on that day, spend some special time on a little journey with friends or loved ones! Attend a special event!

 

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!

Have a great new year!

Libra Poised at Fall Equinox!

Libra White Rose for Purity

Dried plants, fallen leaves floating in the wind, seeds on the ground, a time of letting go of summer’s brilliance. For some it is a cooler season, for others it is blankets of snow over earth’s bed, quietening and restful, time to catch up, social evenings by the fire. For many, it is also the crisp zing of intoxicating energy, skiing, skating, sledding, ice hockey!

White for snow and purity, perfection and the virtue of the balance required for all those winter sports! Since plants and light are dying, there are cooler days and longer nights, worries and sadness can set in, needing courage to face the demons of darkness. Time for the breathtaking White Tiger! In itself it strikes the balance between dark and light by its colors! It LIVES those colors! Plus those amazing blue eyes!

West, the place of the setting sun is Libra’s direction. Sunset is our natural gathering time of day after work is done. We are tired and enjoy chatting over dinner, sharing the day’s events. Summer’s bounty makes it possible to share with pleasure. The Chumash Indians saw it as the place the Souls crossed over after having walked the Milky Way as stars. It is a finishing time as well as being inspired by new ideas. We talk things over and brainstorm how we would have done it, done it differently. In a moment new partnerships are formed to do new ventures.

West is also the place of dusk and dark, dreams and visions! We can seed our dreams with images of our new projects and ideas before sleeping, then dream them into being during the night. We wake up knowing what to do!

The knowing of these cycles of growth then rest, are innate within us. Being reminded helps us remember the cycle continues endlessly, effortlessly, naturally. Sadness is part of it. Weep well for things you have lost. Let your tears grace the Earth. Each period of rest or winter is followed by new growth, or spring. Choose courage to face what’s ahead, and may it be joyous! Light white candles. Put white flowers on your table or where you work.

As  Deborah Byrd says: You can recognize these phases in the course of relationships, over a workday, in the progress of a play or novel, in the process of aging, while eating a meal, in the growth of a garden, in a scientific or political or business enterprise, while playing a game. All things sprout, bloom, reach completeness, become brittle and die, then rest. Then the cycle begins anew.

Where Virgo sorted the goods, Libra connects the people! We are doing this together. Extend a smile or a hand to to fellow Life Walkers. Give them a white rose of winter.

Jupiter in Libra Travel Wedding Gown Plane Blue
Traveling with your Wedding Dress?! ~ Call the airline ahead of time….

August 24 Note: ONLY 16 days of Virgo left. Organize, Tone up your skills, get things done, clean up, heal your mind and body, be ready to relate! Jupiter goes through the signs every 12 years, so this is it for Virgo, Libra to begin shortly!

This Sign change, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, occur between two VIRGO eclipses! Sep 1 Solar ECLIPSE, New Moon is first, then the Sep 16 Lunar ECLIPSE, Full Harvest Moon! All this is during the Virgo Mercury Retrograde Aug 30 to Sep 21! The Jupiter Sign change is followed by the Sep 22 Sun’s sign change into Libra, Fall Equinox! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter, then at 2 Libra 49, a very lucky combination! And Mars will be conjunct the Galactic Center, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Virgo‘s exceptional craftsmanship has attracted the notice of Libra’s who appreciate the finest art! In Libra, a worthy long term partnership may be formed. Quality is a gift in itself, and may assure the intrinsic value of the gift offered. Jupiter may have worked long and traveled far to arrive at this special time and meet YOU!

Jupiter is known to be casual, a seasoned traveler able to do well with the useful minimum. In Virgo we may have had budgets, healers and horses. Libra will bring well groomed poodles and spending some of that money! Libra enjoys sociality and elegance, from tux at the ballet to exquisite gowns at the symphony. The fine art gallery or the local art show are on their agenda. Jupiter loves a good story, so invite them to play the part to maximize the benefits! This combination makes for fundraising like you had only dreamed of!

Jupiter is playful, so expect some jokes and joviality, maybe a few bets, along the sidelines. Maybe that is just the icebreaker needed, a little friendly competition to start the juices flowing. There will likely be a faux pas once in awhile, but usually they are forgiven. We are all human. They meant well, and surprisingly things work out great!

Libra is so courteous and tactful. Jupiter is no fool, so can see the value in establishing well balanced relationships with respect and kindly words. With Jupiter’s confidence and friendliness with people from many lands, and Libra’s cross cultural camaraderie at the table, they are a hit and the sale is made, the contract negotiated fairly, a long term alliance celebrated!

Jupiter has many interests, some of them foreign. In Libra, expect to see the world. Jupiter loves to teach; Libra can gather the Souls, anthropology in action. Jupiter can publish; Libra finesses the script perfectly. Jupiter is the Judge; Libra loves the Law and makes great lawyers. Jupiter has perspective, integrity and super Faith and helps Libra hold the line and stick with the long term meaningful decision. Libra helps Jupiter see both sides before leaping to assumptions! They are a good team.

Libra is good at team sports and peaceful competition. Baseball, relays, synchronized. Dance, ballet, Tai chi, balance. Jupiter enjoys games, being robust, racing, skiing, skating, horseback riding. Make it all an art. Show that big doggie, fine horse! Try some figure skating! Do good things for your figure! Eat less, eat well.

Jupiter is a daytime planet and Libra a daytime but Sunset sign. They love a starlit night with candles and a lovely long view of the Milky Way to keep Jupiter’s happiness. Wish upon a star. If they do things they both love together, a relationship can be formed. Otherwise, this may be a ‘it was fun to have met you’ affair. But you will change. It was memorable and still special. You Libras got more courage and Jupiterians more grace.

Venus is Libra’s planet, so many couples will be in the marrying mood! Businesses associated with marriage and travel will thrive! Yet, Jupiter, the wanderer, isn’t always an easy catch. If not the marrying type, or not ready, they vanish or just don’t show up. If things go well for your relationship, Jupiter IS THE luckiest planet of all! Jupiter in Libra marriages may be truly and exponentially blessed! You two together will be more successful in Love and Business than you ever were separately on your own. If you are already married, get a great special date and time from your astrologer to renew your vows and make it even better! Be sure to check with your astrologer for

  • Basic lasting real compatibility – no maybes or ‘potentially.’
  • Chose a beautiful astrological wedding date and time on that day for happy stability, love and prosperity!
  • Check both your astrolocalities for the most lovely and successful place for your marriage, honeymoon, and where to settle and have your children.

DANCE in Beauty forever and ever.

Jupiter into LIBRA 2016 Astrology Chart

Sep 9, as Jupiter makes the sign change into LIBRA, Jupiter stands alone, in no close degrees to any  other chart factors. It is free to act, or unconnected, yet Libra is a sign of relationships.

In time it stands with the last exact Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, the day after the sign change! That aspect has brought sadness, breakdowns, endings, losses. The square has been strong and close to 10 Sagittarius from April 13 to Oct 31. Paris, Orlando, many floods. At the same time, it has shown us the great needs, many have forgiveness, great kindnesses have been shown, and determination to rebuild and change shows amazing resilience though having suffered greatly.

Mercury is RETROGRADE at 24 Virgo, headed back to 14 Virgo 49. We must rethink many things to find better ways. In Virgo it is new health practices in our lives, business systems, financial management, cleaning up our homes and environment, giving our pets better care. It’s paying attention to when people need our help yet not depleting ourselves in the process. Virgo is a sensible mutable Earth sign, born to make these adjustments with the least fuss. Get your rest, hug your family and carry on.

Mercury is retrograding to opposition Chiron and inconjunct Uranus. This is important because Mercury is keeping the energy of their recent aspects in our mind and the reverse aspects of their previous sets start in December and carry through 2017! See More!

Sun in Virgo is in square with Moon and Mars in Sagittarius. Could be some impatience in the wind, grumpy rumblings. Work versus running away, responsibility versus independence now! Again, mutable signs, so look for the good, make the adjustments, and keep moving. You can clean up messes and fine tune later! Get what you can done, take some time outs for fun!

Venus, Libra’s planet has sextiled Saturn, happily made the job more productive, restored some broken relationships, let others go on their way in their own style. Perhaps an almost marriage. Venus has inconjuncted Neptune, wondering why the wandering, yet has caught glimpses of unmendable broken hearts, dreams that could come true, Spirit that leads us. Libra, an air sign, is the ever so logical lawyer, but sometimes the balance of heart and matter leads to a creative solution that pleases the kindred Soul of all. Venus wants what she wants, but you can’t own people. Her ultimate grace and kindness wins the day.

She will stand trial square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules Scorpio the sign after Libra. Libra prepares the relationships for the deeper dealings of Scorpio, intimacy, financially, death and rebirth, detoxing and healing. Serious matters. Venus can be frivolous with fru frus, cosmetics, flowers, clothes & jewelry. She loves the elite musics and entertainment, ballet, plays. Capricorn brings her up short and says we need to pay the rent and think of possible needs for savings for a rainy day, and fix the roof, you know. Sigh. Ok, so a bit of both? She will pale and die if there are no pretties at all. And Cap can get too gruffy and stuffy for his own good. Grab him and take him out to play! Just might like it after all! :)

Don’t expect to make an easy love match with this square. It will either take time, there are family, financial or career or educational setbacks, a broken engagement, age is an issue. Sometimes it is wiser to let go and find happiness elsewhere another time. It may seem bleak at this time, but is worth the wait. Remember, these aspects will be in different formations with each of your different charts. Check with a couple astrologers to see and confirm your specific personal timing.

Moon and Mars are trine Uranus, so there are some unexpected, yet not surprising either, opportunities soon ahead. Time to try out new adventures! Get outdoors, try a new sport, a new gym! New friends, a different new group is likely to invite you!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017! When the Sun goes into Libra this year, it will conjunct Jupiter at 2 Libra 49! That is a lucky combination, so Libras will get off to a great start and Fall Equinox will be glorious!

Happy Jupiter in Libra to you all! Happy travels, great learning, bountiful relationships!

Mercury Retrograde winding road across the Golden land

9.22.16 Sun into Libra note: These are the matters that will be finishing through Oct 6 with Mercury now Direct/forward in Virgo.

Virgo is so tawny and earthy, the sign after Golden Leo. S curves, like in retrogrades, can have such grace and contour perfectly celestially in our lives, each turn specifically meaningful, intertwined so naturally….

Both Eclipses, Sep 1 and 16, Jupiter’s Sep 9 sign change into Libra, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10 are all during Mercury Rx! There will be a lot of rethinking going on of many matters. Mercury will keep these events in our mind as well as the previous Jupiter-Chiron-Uranus sets, and the three Mercury trines with Pluto!

The prep, perusal and anticipation phase started Aug 10. Mercury retrogrades Aug 30 at 29 Virgo 4. 29 is the last degree of a sign, considered a critical degree as it holds the last moments before the threshold into the next sign. It is in maturity, happy, so done, excited and a little scared sometimes too! In this case we can get a look but don’t get to step onto Libra ground, yet. Mercury returns to mid Virgo, 14 Virgo 49, reorganizing. Kinks are getting straightened out. Unfinished business is tended. More healing happens. We get cleaner and lighter as no longer needed goods are given away or sold, transformed to current purpose.

At each turn point, Aug 30 and when it turns forward Sep 21, focus is held for about an 8 day period. Projects are refined, ideas are absorbed and retained. Not perhaps in their entirety, but the crucial bits are held. The sand of the hour glass drizzles silently, into a slightly new mix. Time, though passing, stands still. It can seem perverse or magical, maybe a tad of both, depending on your mindset. Let yourself be the observer, be one with it, be patient and grateful. There is an essence, that is truly pure, that is being revealed.


Mercury three times at Jupiter opposition Chiron, inconjunct Uranus points of Aug 12, 13
  • Mercury keeps us thinking of Jupiter in Virgo’s course corrections, its inconjunct Uranus, and additional offerings of healing expertise to Chiron, increasing Chiron’s repertoire. Mercury will sniff about, question, drop hints, dialogue its way along and around, let information flow and filter into the crevices of opportunity it finds. The first scan, is Aug 19, less than a week fresh from Jupiter’s two aspects, and this only one day after the Full Grain Moon spanning Leo/Aquarius! The ideas Jupiter stirred are expanded, having more reach now than thought possible. Stretch for it!
  • Mercury transits are about a 4 day affair, 3 before, 1 after, unless it is in station, holding the point longer, or unless you are more, more sensitive. Then it’s the time it is for you.
  • The second contact, is September 9, the very day Jupiter changes signs, enters Libra for the first time since 12 years ago! The importance of Jupiter’s aspects, Jupiter then in Virgo, sharing across the table with co-healer teacher, spirit traveler Chiron, is fully in mind as Jupiter’s energy is carried over the threshold from super service Virgo to sharing and pairing Libra! How we serve each other, our dearest loved ones, how we make each other’s day better makes the difference between heartbreak and that 40th anniversary! Business partnerships flourish as we each bring our marvelous talents to the table. Jupiter’s inconjunct Uranus, consideration of friendships and how we can all work together in service to our world, the greater community, brings change that awakens some, gives many a ‘home,’ sets us free together. Nice and gentile Libra is not to be underestimated! They are diplomats, negotiators and peacemakers, but also rights fighters par excellence! Law is their business. Be careful about your business, have a good staff and team available. A good lawyer is a true asset.
  • October 3 is Mercury’s last connection. The Moon will be in Scorpio that day conjuncting Venus. Take some sweet time with someone you love. Protect your privacy and be sure your security measures are in place.

*Another threesome this Rx is Mercury trine Pluto, even more powerful because Mercury stations with Pluto when it turns direct! Mercury trined Pluto Aug 10, the very beginning day of its three part cycle – direct, retrograde, direct.  When Mercury turns directions it is ‘still’ for an 8 day period, 4 days before, 4 days after. That is a time of great focus, concentration, being instilled with the principles of that time. Mercury trines Pluto the second time Sep 20, turns direct/forward the 21st, Sun goes into Libra the 22nd, and trines Pluto the third time Sep 23, all right in that 8 day station from Sep 18 to 25! Mercury queries Pluto who doesn’t give up his secrets easily. Mercury is generally more inquisitive than wanting to use things against you, but still, there needs to be some degree of trust and possibly confidentiality before certain things are shared. The trine is often more successful. So it you want to learn a deeper way of seeing and knowing, get closer, give it a try. Pluto cleans things up and some of those answers given may not immediately make you happy, but will certainly change your life. Sexuality, intimacy, money, cleansing, death, healing & rebirth are Pluto fortes. See it in the Sep 16 Eclipse!

Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, the other is Gemini. Gemini glories in a brilliant array of  ideas! Virgo wants to put them to work. Both are more of mind, earthy Virgo is more of matter. It’s not just ideas, but things, the results that ideas make. Virgo crafts them into a working system. It hones the edges. It puzzles them about until there is a wonderful fit! Virgos make earth crafts especially ones of wood, like cabinetry, wooden ship building, custom homes, wood carvings. Their amazing attention to detail wins awards. They want quality and durability, plus sustainability. Get yourself ready to be flexible. Old routines will be challenged.

Virgo performs countless services, from the saving lives nurse, to washing dishes housekeeper, the accountant who saves your bacon! Some of them franchise, others would never dream of delegating, they personally ARE the business. Those remarkable beings will change your diet, and you will let them! They study every facet and know all the details. Impressive. So when Mercury is retrograde they may go a bit crazy as things are thrown up in the air topsy turvy. Don’t worry. Give them appropriate time for the Rx to settle and they will have a better way of production than ever! If you are a service provider, you may be astonished at your clients’ new requests. Roll with it best you can and have them sign and date any changes of the original agreement.

Mercury rules paperwork, and Lord knows Virgo does plenty of that! Mercury Rx is a classic time to put off signing papers. Wait if possible. Get receipts for returns, warranties. This may be time to look and test equipment for your business, but, again, wait, especially if it means an entire system overhaul or an expensive item. Since Virgo rules health care, wait to get elective surgery for yourself or pets. Career shifts during the Rx likely won’t turn out as expected, and it’s better to wait to hire if possible. Be ready to spend plenty if you go for a renovation or restoration during Rx. If this Rx doesn’t activate your chart or you have super good aspects during the Rx you can chance it, but as my tax Daddy told me, never chance more than you can pay for!

Virgos are keen mentors, love doing on the job training, are fine tutors. They write the books and manuals! Going to or sending your kids to a specialty or technical school of a Virgo kind is ace! You, they, will come away with profound life skills as well as a fine talent that will be admired and appreciated by many, make you a contributing community member. But don’t be surprised if you change your focus during Rx!

Mercury finishes its three part cycle October 6. As it goes forward from Sep 21, put on the finishing touches. Make final corrections. Go over from front to back, beginning to end, with a fine tooth comb. One of the skills of a good caring person is knowing when to let it be. Good enough. And some things just have to be taken to the Nth degree! After all, it does have your name on it!

2016 is the year of Earth retrogrades. Common sense. Getting things done that are the foundations of our lives. Taurus is our body, being centered and well grounded, strong and kind. This second Rx, in Virgo, is taking care of our body and each other, developing life skills and craftsmanship. Capricorn takes that healthy body to the top of the mountain, is a Father, has a successful career, ages well!

Blessed be, stay so very true!

*Added Aug 20
