Taurus, Peace, Strength and Insight

Taurus International Yoga Day

Taurus saves us every day. It’s the sign of body awareness. Ruled by Venus, it seeks grace, beauty that permeates us. Peace comes into our hearts. Wellness makes for radiance and attractiveness. Being centered and grounded bring immediate true simple reactions, sensible solutions. It is humble, admits error, smiles with joy at success of our personal contributions that support all. There is innocence without contrivance or competition. Venus is giving. Taurus stands in patience, kindness.

Such strength is often invisible, a gentle daily action that is relaxing to follow, yet if you stand back, you can see it. There are times when their restraint is their success. It is no sign of weakness to wait until a good time. Physically, Tauruses often have amazing strength and endurance. They can lift extraordinarily heavy objects with no effort at all.

Oh, yes indeed, the same strength for forward motion can also be them standing in front of you with their arms crossed over their chest, immovable as the Oak tree. You can be gentle, rage at them, be clever with your logic to no avail. Maybe they will think on it and get back to you. That might take a short time, a few years, maybe never. You can only admire how they be true to themselves. If they tell you it will be a certain way, you can trust that will be so.

Yoga is known for flexibility, for it’s dedicated breath work, prana, the life force itself. It is known for requiring strength. The United Nations International Yoga Day, recently established in 2015, is June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares special significance in many parts of the world. In the US it correlates with Father’s Day, the third Sunday in June. We expect a lot of our men, to be strong all the time, to have patience beyond measure for mere mortals. We want them to protect us, yet be flexible to grow with us as times change. For Yoga Day to be theirs is suitable for our heroes! And they will have better health and a longer life for us to love them!

The most sacred possession you have is your own body ~ it is the instrument of your Soul’s music. That’s Taurus’s job. A good night’s sleep. Maybe a Salutation to the Sun upon waking up, to see that sunrise. Maybe you love the night time and seeing the beautiful stars and moon. Do what feels good in a good way, be peaceful to your own Self. Get exercise that keeps you on an even keel. A nature walk, taking your doggie or a good friend with you. Eat less, go for quality. It pays off in the long run. You are worth it. Sing with that lovely voice you have and take good care of your throat.

Be touched and give hugs. Do and get massages. Feel the water around your legs, the mud squish between your toes. Hold your face to the sun, let the sun warm your back, the wind ruffle your hair. Hear the crinkle of stepping on fresh snow, breathe deep taking in that snappy cold air. Heady! Lift your chin and let the sights tickle your eyes, the wildflowers in the meadow. Throw back your head and laugh because it’s all so amazing! Dance! Let your worries shape shift into another dimension. When you get back to work they shall have reordered themselves into an unexpected harmony, a doable scenario. You settle down to it.

Tauruses know the intrinsic values of things. Some things are lasting, permanent. Others things are transient, maybe flashy, but go their way shortly. Some become boring. Some we turn our backs on upon sight. Nope, not a step skipped or a moment’s hesitation, decision made. They are natural appraisers of land, people. They can feel you in a handshake, hear you in your voice, see the way you carry your body, or how your feet touch that ground, or as you walk through the door. Ask their advice and do listen.

One of the most valuable things to them is their connection with you. They are loyal to the ones they choose. They will be there for you. Make a point of being there for them too. Keep them in your heart. They are dedicated workers, often work with the land and earth in some way. They will make a stronghold for you, the children, their parents. They are sensuous lovers, love holding hands, snuggling in the flannels. Put your arm around their waist or shoulders. In the world, they make foundations to support important causes, may donate important property.

Thank you for being exactly who you are. Blessed be forever and ever.

Taurus 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Before dawn, Lyrid meteors in a dark sky Earth Day!

Lyrid Meteors Radiant Sky & Telescope

Thanks to EarthSky’s Bruce McClure for test, Sky & Telescope for image!

Early risers! April 21 to 23 – start watching late at night, or better yet in the hours before dawn Sunday, EARTH DAY, April 22. The annual Lyrid meteor shower will probably be at its best in the predawn hours, especially as the waxing moon will have set by that time. Assuming you’re in a dark location, you really can’t go wrong getting up in the hours before dawn Sunday and gazing skyward. You might catch some meteors, and you’ll surely see the three morning planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, plus the star Antares! April 23 AM only.

Taurus 2018  Timeline!

Apr

19  Happy Taurus!
22  Lyrids Meteors best in predawn AM
29  Full Pink Moon

May 15!
New Moon 4:48 AM Pacific
Uranus into Taurus! 8:23 Am Pacific
Mars into Aquarius, the Uranian sign! 9:55 PM Pacific
25 Jupiter in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces

By far, the most exciting aspect in Taurus 2018 is it hosts the Uranus sign change from Aries to Taurus at the Taurus NEW MOON! Fitting indeed! New beginnings! Mars is the planet of activation, ignition, leadership, action! Uranus is the planet of evolution, dramatic sweeping change! Things just won’t look the same a year from now!

We are in the last part of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, finishing completely May 3. Jupiter trines Neptune May 25, showing up in Full and New Moon charts now.

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Tauruses’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 back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted 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. Late in the year, 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!

Continuing abiding Aspects: 

Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background! More

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Outer Planet Transits with Taurus 2018 – May 2019!

Taurus Skyline Dr Shenandoah National Park Wildflower Weekend

Skyline Drive, 105 miles. This route stretches through Shenandoah National Park, end-to-end, with the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and more than 1,300 species of plants. The annual Wildflower Weekend is in early May, featuring special talks and guided nature hikes showcasing local wildlife. Bucket list.

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!

Taurus is Pluto’s sign Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus and Capricorn are both earth signs. Taurus and Pluto both are money signs, Taurus is my money, the money at hand, in your pocket. Scorpio is our money, of couples and corporations, all big monies like insurance, grants, loans, mortgages. A working balance is called for paying what’s owed and some happiness spending money. Taurus is known for common sense, steady attrition. Pluto wants to invest your money, which may be a shrewd move, or scare you to death and you prefer your reserves to possible loss. Pluto may give Taurus the sense they are being manipulated, or used, or with Pluto’s keen observations you may feel like someone finally really understands you. In the face of Pluto’s possible obsessions, stand your ground, stay steady with your considerations. Pluto can be seductive, so give it time. Trust yourself, stay safe. They have their way; you have yours. Way.

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 18 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. Taurus helps steady that unbridled flow. Neptune symbolizes the flow of the land and seasons with its vast seasonal ocean currents. Taurus’s territory is what’s under his feet. Neptune swirls him to new shores. Neptune softens the deep consideration of Taurus’s ruminations, introduces a less obvious mystical sense into the mix. Though a bit unsettling, it removes that stubborn edge if you surrender. Things go a little faster, energy is released. Barefoot is best.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 4 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 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!

In Aries, the spark may be a bit bright for Taurus. Taurus is the sign of rumination, the Bull and his 4 stomachs, digesting, absorbing, moving information from one dimension to the next, the ability to be still while doing so. There truly is progress, it just isn’t always visible. But conclusions are well thought out. Uranus electrifies, brings ideas ahead of their times, that mortify or magnetize! Intriguing show to say the least. We find ourselves thinking of them, questioning, even if we thought we disagreed. Maybe it is the manner of presentation rather than the ideas themselves. Maybe it’s time to kick up our heels and make a run for it!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! 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 otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away. But 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!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 4 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! 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 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, 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! Taurus is pretty steady, but Chiron in Pisces is psychic at seeing what ails you. Might be food  – breads, cheese, sweets. Your body may be enormously physically strong, but too much of the wrong foods can trip you up, slow you down, cause tummy and other issues. Chiron looks at how that all can affect your attractiveness, self esteem, financial acuity, relationships – both lovers and children, your ability to take care of elders you love.

On a 51 year cycle, when Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, Taurus may be surprised to find ways to exercise that pleases them! Could be a bike ride, a ground covering walk in the woods! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with at times 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! Aries intends to get right to it and Aries will be happily lead the way with innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. Taurus may find himself opening a gym with weights, competitive sports – boxing, martial arts. 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. 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 May 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 feels the support of fellow Earth sign Taurus. Taurus may be pushed by take-it-on Capricorn, but their intents are harmonious. Taurus wants a safe and comfortable home with good organic food in the kitchen. It knows the value of feeling well and having quality fare. Saturn will make demands and Taurus is willing to step up to the plate. Saturn realizes the value of experience and being steady under fire and is well pleased with Taurus’s contribution. Taurus may find themselves comfortably picking up the pace, especially with Capricorn’s expert time saving expertise. Saturn is grateful for Taurus’s dependability and loyalty. On both sides, be sure wages are fair and equitable for these benefits. 

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 ready to inspire Taurus with its long vision. Taurus is Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus prefers their steady routine, so Jupiter needs to place it’s ideas in Taurus territory with a little care. Bring it to them bit by bit so they get used to it. Expect it to take a little extra time as you honor your friend’s needs to think things through. It’s not for anyone to win, but to do what works in your hearts. It can be a relief that you don’t expect everything to happen all at once. Early on, introduce your plan and make those steps realistic to the person at hand. If you try to be clever and trick your Taurus, that might work for awhile, but there is a core person in Taurus that won’t be used or abused. You might end up losing more than you ventured. On the other hand, let’s say it’s a plan you both can get behind, no matter how long it takes. They like your invitation and put heart and hoof into it! They offer steady support, telling key people how it makes fundamental good sense, and right behind them, you can do the fundraising.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Taurus believes in schooling, the more sensible the better. You may have to take them on a few journeys to see other ways of living, techniques of teaching at other schools. If they are pleased, they may fund the hospital teaching wing, or the church classrooms with daycare provided. If you travel, make your Taurus comfy and bring their favorite foods and blankies. Trains are lovely, the land is soothing to see. Get off the train, out of the car for walk breaks. Jupiter is always wanting to raise standards, are more all encompassing. It’s important to show your Taurus how this personally affects them and their loved ones. Programs for a cleaner planet, better land use, protecting pristine land and resources will go well with them. Ethics are important to Jupiter, the greater truth, higher meaning. Talk philosophy, sustainability. You may be surprised by the exchange. Jupiter helps us stretch, has robust health, generally lives long and prospers! Taurus may be impressed, or just not even notice. So point it out how they can translate that into their own lives, or to someone they love. Sometimes Tauruses are working with such dedication you have to open the door yourself.

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.

Yod Saturn/Venus + Moon’s Nodes Square Full Moon! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Sunday April 29 at 5:58 PM Pacific, 9 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Stunning Full Pink Moon Crested Butte CO by Stan Rose

Full Moon rising over East Fork, Crested Butte, San Juan Mountains, Colorado by Stan Rose

This is the last Moon before Uranus changes signs, from Aries into its first taste of Taurus in 84 years! The sign change first happens just after the New Moon April 15!

This Full Moon has the Moon in Scorpio. Some say the Moon in Scorpio delves deep into past lives, the meaning of life and death, obsessing and purging, mortification and soul retrieval, subsequent healing. It looks into the crevices, or is that crevasses, of the convolutions of our relationships, financial innuendos, secrets. The fire at the base of the spine, the Kundalini, may be ignited! The Phoenix rises. If you weren’t powerful before, you will be now! Not for the faint of heart!

The Sun in Taurus leads out of darkness into the Light, steady and trustworthy, a safe way and place to go. The wings of the newborn butterfly emerge, are spread wide to dry, gather strength after the transition. They are folded and unfolded, flexing for their ascension. This seems especially true with Uranus, the planet of flight, at the super potent last degree of Aries, the sign of ignition! We need that grounding and centering Taurus gives us. We will need to be strong and dependable to stabilize the coming changes.

Saturn, in its own sign Capricorn, is at the same degree as the Full Moon! Saturn wants a reliable structure, a strong boundary, to keep safe within, to protect from without. It sextiles the Moon, lending business opportunities. It trines the Sun, building a timely reputation of personal achievement. Things get done and on time. This combination is not impetuous, can bring about long thought out mergers and marriages, successful parenting.

Saturn is also Yod, at an ‘opposite’ point between Venus and the North Node. Both Venus and the Node are moving toward Saturn’s degree. Venus is in Gemini being glib or glissando! She shares the gossip and valuable data, introduces you to people who have just the information you need, and spreads the word about what an asset you are! The blog needs updating and some attention. The North Node can be a shy point in Leo, but rather than being so concerned what others think, it’s time to express your unique gift, what’s always been in your heart to do! Step into the light! Shake hands, let that Venus breath of beauty, those sweet words, give you the courage. Shake loose, stand tall!

The Full Moon crosses the Moon’s Node axis at right angles, making a fixed Grand Square! Fixed squares are known to have long standing issues hard to change. Taurus is mine; Scorpio is ours, but I will have some on the side, a personal account as well. Aquarius is the ‘past’ South Node. I had many friends and associates and depend on them, perhaps too much. The Leo North Node calls us to ‘be’ ourselves, in full radiant primal glory, to take our personal place in the Sun. This can be the leader of the tribe! The angle signs have their challenges. Taurus likes peace and quiet while Leo has the rock band rattling the windows! Leo wants you to adore them and show you off; Scorpio admires his investment, but prefers his secrets. Scorpio often works privately behind the scenes, while Aquarius is either the free loner never captured, or stirs up the masses into waves of collective change, no holds barred! Aquarius is electrification, the Awakener personified, genius ahead of its time; Taurus likes the comfort and beauty of our Earth, contemplation through saturation. From the Buddha at the roadside shrine to the Captain of the Rocket! Having mutual purpose is the key to putting all these talents together.

Mars conjuncted, was with Pluto in Capricorn the 26th. He quickly poked around in Pluto’s stockpile and dump, looked at his reserves, assessed the assets, offered some suggestions. Pluto warned him when he got too close to the boundaries, but listened to this upstart intruder who dared. Mars knew he could get away, but knew he would chance it. Pluto has traps set, security, but some traps are more of the psyche. That’s a whole nother story. Mars learned some tricks and even more clever ways to use resources, how to build from decay and destruction, release what has been bound. He carries this all forward. Much needed.

Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect Aug 19. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts 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.

Right now, strengthen, work together, build, be mindful.

NEW MOON!

URANUS Sign Change, Double Earth Stelliums! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Tuesday May 15 at 4:48 AM Pacific, 24 Taurus 36

Taurus 2018 New Moon Uranus into Taurus

With 4 planets in Taurus, 3 in Capricorn, that’s 7 in EARTH signs, this is a super grounded practical New Moon. Sit with it. Even Uranus, the planet of space is coming in for a landing!

Notice that 00 Taurus 00 in the New Moon chart below! Today Uranus, the God of the Heavens, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus, the sign of Earth herself, on our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk about sex, money, death, food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, gay marriage and guns openly. We got television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! And now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus, Mercury and the Moon and Sun are all in Taurus emphasizing Uranus’s new sign!! Mercury can feel Uranus right behind him, etheric and electric! These two powerhouses of intellect have a lot to think and talk about. Uranus is considered genius, way ahead of his time, sometimes a little incoherent. Mercury is famous for connecting the dots, can spin and spit out yarns and info as fast as he can make his lips move, even in Taurus! He just talks about Taurus subjects instead of other info! Mercury gets the honors, is the first to greet this great and wild one! What we thought is not and no longer, now off the charts of ordinary conception. Keep your Spirit open and upward seeking!

Mercury in Taurus, the thinker/communicator is key. He just semi sextiled Chiron, newly in Aries, is excited about new remedies, businesses, relationships. Mercury trined Lilith, a harmony of intention to build new long lasting vessels dedicated to uphold divine law, create a working world order. Elders will guide and protect. Next, Mercury will trine Saturn, the one in charge, Father Time. Surrender as well as profound integrity and knowing are intrinsic components to their success. Last in the sequence is the square, challenge to the Moon’s Nodes, spanning Aquarius to Leo. Taurus aims to settle them down. Leo’s finery and Aquarius’s exotic untouchability, can put them off the charts. Taurus waits for their attention, eases them to put those factors to good use, and simplifies the how tos. Quite a chain of events, a complicated network.

The New Moon is last in Taurus. Cows and bulls are meant to take their time pondering. They know how to conserve energy. Others are running around while they are watching, chewing their cuds, working through those 4 part stomachs! They are digesting what they see, casting it in the best situation possible. They see if it stands the test of time, measure its value, get the most gain for the least effort. They often see what others don’t and waste little time in the long run. Tauruses can be gentle, comforting and uplifting. They praise us in truth and it means a lot coming from them. They are remarkably strong in temperament and physically. Business may start small, but it grows and grows through the years. They are loyal mates.

The Moon in Taurus makes a lovely home. Natural surroundings, breezes through the windows, flowers wafting their scents, veggies in the garden. She hugs the children, is herbalist to bruises and illnesses. She’s aware of investment cycles, often doing well financially, gives insightful advice. She may have a cosmetics shop, boutique of comfortable clothes, or a specialty foods, bakery, cheeses, flowers or natural foods market.

Sun in Taurus is a champion! He may be the one behind these businesses! He might specialize in native landscapes, run the nursery, drive the tractor at the farm or do urban digging for power and underground lines. He may have a knack for placing homes in harmony with the land, designing with a sustainable flair. Taurus has a 6th sense for textures, matching people with their best place. He has the strength to be a superb caterer using healthy foods. Or what about that restaurant?! Natural cosmetics. Strength to be a bodybuilder! Or to hold peace at the ashram or sanctuary?

Moon offers Sun her support. She makes him know how much she values him. He is her Light, and makes her know how much he appreciates her. She is the Emerald. The bond is beyond words. Affection. Venus, Taurus’s planet, is one sign away. As we talked about Mercury in Taurus, Venus, Taurus’s planet, is in Gemini, Mercury’s sign. When planets are in each other’s signs this way, it is called Mutual Reception. Each is blessed with a commonality of understanding, strengthened, and can be read in each other’s places in the chart. This New Moon linked with Venus, specifically picks up the entire Mercury network as well even though the degrees don’t connect!

Venus, though in Gemini, being Taurus’s planet, has a natural link to the New Moon. She blesses them with her words. She spreads the good word, supplies valuable feedback from the ‘hood, heals rifts. The Mercury links take that word to other collaborative businesses, women of power, opens gates to new options.

Taurus is the first of the Earth signs, feeds and shelters the tribe. Capricorn is the last Earth sign, attaining the heights! Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet is in Capricorn making his mark, collecting the land use fees and profits turning them back into building for the future – he’s already feeling the plans Jupiter has for the dreams and visions of Neptune! He wants to make them happen. Pluto is now in the last third of Capricorn, researching methods for healing problems of aging, cementing special behind the scenes alliances, securing funding. No sense rebuilding the old. He too is on board with creating what’s new and better, insightful and valuable. Capricorn is the master of long term goals and works hard to get there.

Mars sits at 29 Capricorn, the last degree, feeling the urgency to complete the necessities! At base is organizing so the project can continue effectively. He is a tad reluctant, after all he has worked for, since he senses all hell is going to break loose when he goes into Aquarius, Uranus’s unpredictable sign! Granted, it will not be so careful as Capricorn, but will be crazy creative! Ok, just be as ready as you can be. New techniques will turn the tables and the project will morph into something more advanced. The speed will be exhilarating!

As with the April 29 Full Moon above, Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, now on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect Aug 19. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts 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.

Taurus makes us so aware of our bodies. Take good care of yours, use it with infinite respect.

Uranus Aries Dangermond Preserve Pt Conception

Dec 22, 2017 when Uranus was at 24° Aries, Laura & Jack Dangermond made a bold move. They donated $165M to preserve 24,000 acres at Point Conception CA. They hope their gift to the Nature Conservancy, their leadership, encourages similar philanthropic efforts. See more And from National Geographic

Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus the same day as our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations created. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk publicly about sex, money, death. Food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, from worldwide AIDS to gay marriage, and guns. We’ve gotten television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! Environmental awareness is on the table, and now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus is the planet of R/Evolution, Stars, Space, the great Internet! Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. They support us to be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind; uninfluenced we find our own special path. Uranus is the planet of philanthropy and electronics technology.

Chiron’s sign change into Aries is the first of the 5 outer planet sign changes of 2018. Chiron and Uranus travel together in Aries, one at the beginning, the other at the end, 28 days, until Uranus enters Taurus May 15. Uranus has spectacularly crashed and burned, created rifts and openings to ease Chiron’s way, to see new beginnings, work his healing magic in more etheric realms, do the business of the Soul! Uranus will pass the baton to Chiron. In Taurus Uranus will plow the fertile fields for further seeds to be planted by Chiron.

Uranus will be in Aries the first part of 2018 until it goes into Taurus May 15, on the Taurus NEW MOON. It’s the same day, Mars leaves Capricorn, jumps into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! That keeps the frequencies amped, and Mars, new and first, unfettered in Aquarius the Awakener, is delighted to make the change! It does square Uranus, but that is just more exciting for those two, or a mere flea bite in the bull’s fur! Uranus stays in this preview in Taurus until it retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6 for the rest of the year.

The change into Taurus precedes the second Jupiter trine Neptune. See more. The first Jupiter trine Neptune, big dreams, was while Uranus was in Aries, the sign of new times, action to be taken, leadership. This time the dreams will be Taurus flavored. Like a farmer with the land, steady dawn to dusk, plowing, sowing, watering, feeding, harvesting, providing our food, our dreams will show us how to do these things in all ways in our lives. As in the old song, Bible verse, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. This allowing, patience, the skill to harmonize with natural cycles, will continue to be emphasized because the introductory aspect, the second Jupiter trine Neptune, continues closely until it finishes in summer, August 19! This is a very psychic aspect and will keep us tuned in, precisely. Since it is an easy trine, we may not even notice it, and that is a beautiful trick of the heavens. Sometimes the most profound aspects happen without our really even giving it much thought. One day we just notice we have changed. It just gradually came over us….

Uranus in Aries certainly has brought a ‘revolution’ with the election of Trump. It is a classic reactionary state. Not everyone was in favor of a black president, nor the white woman offered. Too much at once. Financial, medical and age factors have changed and will change more. The environment and animals are being threatened. Those who are working to sustain equal rights – for women, races, sexuality – have their work cut out for them. Many international relationships are suffering. Uranus calls for comm-unity of purpose. Uphill battle. Many are rethinking the true meaning of equality. Young people, high school age, are speaking powerfully and marching, turning the tables. They will be voting age shortly.

Chaos. Uranus rules air. We had tornadoes, hurricanes and the attendant rains and floods. Aries rules fire and dryness. We had severe droughts, and 2017 we had the worst year on record for fires. California has had its worst fire on record. These ‘natural’ events are great equalizers. Rescuers hold no concern for your politics. They are there to help. Re-evolution might be another way to say it. So many have been literally moved from their locations, homes, lifestyle. Why rebuild the past when we can build our future?! Truly a time of great new beginnings! We can help each other learn to live and build sustainably.

Inventions have been extraordinary since 2011/2012 when Uranus entered Aries. Crowdfunding, robotics, drones, self-driving vehicles, work with genomes, reusable rockets, immune engineering, Tesla Autopilot/self driving trucks, reversing paralysis! And those are only a few!

We have been shocked, awakened, made new beginnings! Stay with it!

TAURUS! I don’t know if you can even imagine what Taurus will bring! Instead of rising on Aries rocket fuel, Uranus, the spaceship, is landing! Uranus will be in Taurus until April 25, 2026 electrifying every earthly molecule.

Taurus rules Earth herself. Expect environmental changes. More dramatic climate change and laws about it. Lands and animals will be abused by some, protected by others. Hopefully more people like the Dangermonds, preserving pristine tracts of land, will step up. Please guard Taurus’s tree, the Oak. As we had air and fire turbulence while Uranus was in Aries, Taurus may bring quakes and mudslides, cave ins, volcanic venting. Some will be unceremoniously uprooted. Political changes will be less volatile, but there will be steady progress, important basic rights not forgotten.

Plant genes are already being altered in hopes of making them yield more food and resist drought and disease more effectively.

Taurus rules our bodies, our beauty. Uranus may change standards of attractiveness, more selfies taken, LOL! As in reversing paralysis, disfigurements may be extraordinarily healed. Diseases will be cured and prevented. Taurus is noted for patience, but with Changemaker lightning Uranus there is no standing still, nor patience so much as in the past, yet patience itself may become exceptional. Taurus’s superb strength is being awakened! Respect.

Basic values may undergo serious shifts as we discover more in our world. Some will become practically robots themselves, living through electronics as their only experience. Others may go back to nature, small homes. Communal living may multiply as resources or finances dwindle, or because sustainable living is an ethical choice. There are solar cell inventions that will provide sustainable energy. We are living in majorly changing times!

Taurus is challenged, and challenging to, other fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, fire signs Aries and Sagittarius and air signs Gemini and Libra. Taurus works well with other Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn, and water signs Cancer and Pisces. As the years roll by, factors in your chart will be activated per the degrees Uranus is at that given year.

Stand strong, steady in the Light!

Uranus Retrograde from Taurus back into Aries Nov 6

Aug 7 Uranus goes up to 2 Taurus, a bare glimpse, then retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6. But there will be precognition! Purpose will be established, Aries will look for the best ways to boost the new Taurus work. They will find the best ways to champion their efforts fitting to the cause. There will be potential new technology that will help show the way. Change may be surprisingly sudden. Some of it will be flash in the pan, while others will wake up the sleeping and dead and bring them on board! People you least expected will find their time has come. Really! There will be surprising results as people ignite and heed the last call! It will be 84 years before this transition happens again. Do it!

Uranus’s return to Aries is an eventful TEN days! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event! See more!!!
Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

2018 ends with the Lights ON! Pluto is intensified by the Light, channels the Light! Uranus is in the Aries firelight! A Scorpio New Moon may be dark, but Uranus is lightning and Aries is candles and firelight! This New Moon won’t be so dark as it usually could be. Jupiter in Scorpio might put a temporary shadow on Uranus, but even that wouldn’t daunt Uranus or Aries! Jupiter’s intensity in Scorpio could intrigue them to listen, but both Uranus and Aries function at warp speed, so Jupiter better be right to the point and quick about it! Eye contact will be brief to say the least! When Jupiter gets into his own sign, they will then both be in fire signs, but at opposite ends. Uranus will be at 29 Aries while Jupiter is at 0 degrees Sagittarius. They will make no further connections while Uranus is in Aries.

Fire signs represent courage and inspiration! Pluto, Uranus and Saturn in Earth signs are physical and practical, get it done. Perfect.

Feb 18, 2019, Chiron returns to Aries while Uranus is still in Aries. This is the second and last time they will both be traveling in Aries, 16 days, until March 6, 2019,  when Uranus returns to Taurus. This is their final exchange, sharing tips, thanking and wishing each other well. Uranus leaves Taurus for Gemini 2025-26.

In 20 years, the next sign they will travel together in is Cancer. Each of three times it will be for several months, 2038/39, again in 2039, and last in 2040.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” John F Kennedy  [3 planets Taurus, Uranus in its own sign Aquarius]

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!

Outer Planet Transits with Aries 2018 – April 2019!

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.

2018 Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Dog! Australian Shepard

Those blue eyes! Australian Shepard by Eileen Kumpf/Getty Images

In the US New Year’s Day started with the Full Wolf Supermoon! The Chinese New Year is the year of the Brown Earth Dog!

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is a Solar Eclipse Feb 15 at 1:05 PM PACIFIC at 27 Aquarius! In addition, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, making it like a triple eclipse event! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear. Feb 16, New Year day, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the Brown Earth Dog.

Previous Dog years were 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, now this one 2018, and next is 2030! The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Rooster, and before the Pig! When determining your year, remember, the first day of the New Year falls at the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so the date of the new year varies year to year. Dogs are akin to western astrology’s 7th sign Libra.

When I think of Earth Dogs in a literal sense, I think of low to the ground pups like Dachshunds and Basset Hounds, and dogs like Terriers that love to hunt animals that live in the ground. When I think of Libra, pretty well groomed social dogs come to mind, like Poodles, Papillons and King Charles Spaniels, maybe a purebred that’s show quality! Could be a fluffy pure cute, or a non-shedding sleek short hair. Super smart and courageous working dogs are certainly on the ground! Corgis, Australian Shepards, Queensland Healers, Collies! In the Spirit sense, dogs nowadays are considered part of our families, loyal protectors that would give their lives for us.

Human Dogs certainly live up to these admirable traits! They are perceived as very loyal, honest and faithful companions, loving and attentive, not argumentative and they dislike confrontations. Sweetly, Dogs are usually good at remembering anniversaries and other special relationship moments.

Just like a dog will love you no matter who you are, Chinese dogs are considered to be fair, unprejudiced and companionable. They are always alert and aware of things and people around them. Though some prefer to work alone or in small groups, the Libran Dog is adaptable enough to fit in anywhere. These are hard workers who are conscientious, responsible and reliable. They are good with finances and would rather save up than borrow. They live within their means, are frugal buyers, favor quality and real value over quantity. They usually acquire a comfortable lifestyle.

Dogs’ weakness is they tend to be private worriers, sometimes giving the impression they have a stubborn personality. Better to verbalize your concerns, get fresh insights with others. Bless their hearts, they are likely to worry more about others than themselves. They seem to sometimes try and take responsibility for or be too understanding of the actions of others. Denial or too much forgiving. Having a supportive partner will help these doggies to share their personal thoughts and anxieties so they don’t mount up.

Outdoors is good, boring is bad! Dogs need to breathe some great fresh air and get exercise, love meeting new people! They can be serious but know how to take time out  to refresh themselves. Share walking, driving, running, or just relaxing in the garden with your dog friends. As long as it is outside they are not usually fussy about what it involves doing.

Dogs are instinctual and intelligent. They will accept leadership from a true leader as long as it makes sense to their belief system. Dogs are not always leaders themselves but will be close to leaders, who can count on the Dog to save the day. But don’t forget the bite! Always cautious and alert, sometimes undecided, the Earth Dog will bite when he feels threatened or betrayed! You may lose his business.

Famous Dogs:  Fire Dog Trump – this was an ultimate Eastern insult: North Korea said Trump’s speech to UN was akin to ‘sound of a barking dog.’ Famous dogs: Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Bocelli, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, Uma Thurman, Bill Clinton, George Gershwin, Judy Garland, Steven Spielberg, Justin Bieber, David Bowie!

Famous Earth Dogs: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Billy Idol, Al Capone, Prince!

A heartfelt welcome and shout out to all the new little Brown Earth Dogs to be born this year!

Gong xi fa cai, my dear friends, and especially to all you Dogs! Woof!

Jupiter Scorpio Pluto Capricorn Undervalued Sustainable Stocks

A practical thought that may cross our minds. See Sierra Club’s investment program called Aspiration!

Jupiter in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, and Pluto in Capricorn, clear life up for long term ventures. The first two aspects, Jan 15 to April 14 are close and continuous for three months! They clean the frequencies so following outer planet sign changes can be free of debris. This aspect is especially the final preparation for Chiron’s sign change from Pisces to Aries April 17, then Uranus changing from Aries to Taurus May 15! The sign being finished can be brought to a pure maturity with satisfaction and no regrets. The sign we move into gets a clean start, a better chance to do what it is intended to do! It’s a three sign sequential change – Pisces, Aries, Taurus. Pisces is the dreamer/believer. Aries is the initiator, takes action to get it started. Taurus, a fixed sign, anchors and stabilizes. Both Chiron and Uranus share the Aries energy. It’s as if the baton is passed, Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron is already on board as backup to keep Aries rolling! They exchange information while they are both in Aries, April 17 to May 15!

Jan 15 Jupiter sextile Pluto is the first aspect of 2018, sets the tone for the year! They travel closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months to the retrograde aspect April 14. The third follows Sep 12, after the last two Jupiter trine Neptunes. Visions are inspiring! Any last remnants of debris that become apparent are cleared away! We are free to go!

The first sextile is at a powerful time of focus! When the Moon starts in Capricorn 11:42 AM Pacific Jan 14, until it goes into Aquarius 0:32 AM the 17th, we will be having the largest grouping of planets in one sign (stellium) in 2018 – SIX in 26 Capricorn (including Pluto!)! Also the sextile is the day before 2018’s first New Moon!! The New Moon is Jan 16 at 26 Capricorn 54. Capricorn is the last of the working signs, the Earth signs. With the merger of Moon to Sun, it will seal the principles together with both feminine and masculine expertise. It will be dedicated and carry the purpose as its top priority. Intuition will bring clear results.

The second sextile is also at a New Moon, again, the day before! The New Moon is 26 Aries, sign on new beginnings, the first sign of the zodiac, and it trines the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius! Also, on the same day of and before the New Moon, Mercury goes Direct, out of retrograde, beginning to release new energy! Several reasons to celebrate! When Mercury is at a turning point, it is stilled for 8 days, what we call in station. There is a sustained reception, a focus, an anchoring of what we have in mind. Since this second sextile is the end of 3 months of working with Jupiter sextile Pluto, it is a culminating time as well. It will be good to affirm the fruits of our learning. The Aries New Moon will abound with new ideas. Tuned to the Galactic Center, they will be as epic as an Aries can make them! And this time it’s not just Aries enthusiasm! Do give them a thoughtful listen! They are speaking with the tongues of Angels!

The third sextile is four days after a new moon, but the day after the Sun in Virgo sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! That should warm things up! Virgo applies the data, organizes for effective results! Nurse or accountant, that’s invaluable! Jupiter and Pluto should make some quite productive working decisions.

Scorpio and Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, are the agents that clean up the messes! They can be in your mind, your health, your household plumbing, shackles that need to be removed or be less cruel, toxic waste on land or at sea. Jupiter sees where things can go, in Scorpio the Path gets cleared of obstructions and doubts. Pluto in Capricorn guards the old ways, but also has an eye to blind spots buried deep that need updating. Capricorn wants to do the best business possible with the least expense and time, so is on board when a better proven way is shown and is willing to chance some changes. More progress than we knew could be possible!

Jupiter in Scorpio wants education to be meaningful. Pluto in Capricorn wants it to be useful. Jupiter and Pluto want the very best. Go for that! Go to centers or schools that specialize about what you love! Do on the job training, get experience. Volunteer with clarity. Think more long term.

Finances are important to your planning and this can be a lucrative time! It may be tempting to invest everything you’ve got, but diversify a bit. If one or two do better, put more monies there! If you are good with percentages, do it yourself, otherwise, this may be a good time to do it with the pros! Check out their astrology chart before you engage them!

Alliances may be lifelong, and if you have great aspects yourself, it could be a fine marriage merger with both productive business and lots of pleasure! Jupiter is lucky and in Scorpio sees the deepest best in you, reasonable flaws are accepted and forgiven. Ironically, it is also a good time for divorce as well. Financial matters will be shared, well-tended, or divvied up with an equitable settlement if necessary. Intimacy may be so special, and if renewed with lots of appreciation and affection, your marriage could be saved.

Health is likely to improve or be more comfortable. The source of illness will be sought at the deepest levels. As layers are revealed, healing occurs that opens deeper doors. It will be a mix of old remedies and modern medicine, and your psychology. Healing is rarely by touch of the magic wand, but instead, hard work that requires us to learn and understand. Jupiter sees the potential and if you wisely hang onto it, you will be quite pleased with the result. Make your obsessions positive obsessions! If you are young, be aware of consequences of patterns that could affect you down the line. If you are older, you may be thinking of where you will live after retirement or possible health matters that compromise your abilities. Choose housing that makes sense. Small homes communities have never been so fun! DIY mini GrandMother home kits, yes!

Recycling is good. Reuse and repurposing are even better. Renovation including charming vintage panels or glass is lovely. Making places safer, less toxic, with up to date money saving sustainable conveniences makes sense! Homes for the homeless with the programs that go with it are like recycling/healing humans and save money in the long term!

This is a time for research and funding of all kinds. Research for cures of illnesses that have long plagued us. Funding for education to stop all kinds of abuses – sexual, violence, human and animal cruelty, poverty, of our lands. If you are making your will or revising it, consider splitting it. Put some monies toward planetary matters, the rest for your family. Do your part, what you can. Read up on HOW to make change. BE solution oriented. Support those causes.

Traveling will take on a sober note. It may be a profound adventure, soulful, for greater purposes. ‘Chance’ meetings along the way will have importance. A few words can make a major impact. Likely to combine business and exploration. You may be attracted to dangerous places…be careful, please. Learn techniques of life that change you. Invest some time in spiritual accord inner traveling. Be away. Take silence or fast. Consult the Oracles.

Jupiter with Pluto in Scorpio and Capricorn is invincible! Recovery is swift, almost miraculous. They rarely get sick no matter what the conditions. Businesses and financial dealings are super successful. Scripts and writing are charismatic, stunners! Romantic relationships are remarkably long-lived. Their planetary work makes a lasting difference. They have tenacity!

Sustainability will be a key word in all our lives. Jupiter sees the whole picture above ground; Scorpio sees the roots. Pluto in Capricorn specializes in condensing, more for less, getting the most out of it, and long term use! That can be time, materials, decreasing your bills, and the ability to keep a good system going in a good way. Global warming and weathers, environmental changes will be factored in. Locales where you work or live will be more important than ever. [See your astrologer for AstroLocality choices.]


See the 2018 Special Edition Newsletter for all the upcoming Planetary Patterns of the year!

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

New Year’s Day Full Wolf SuperMoon!
Jupiter Sextile Pluto, Capricorn Stellium, Neptune, Grand Trine/Kite!

Monday Jan 1 at 6:24 PM Pacific, 11 Cancer/Capricorn 38! 

Capricorn 2018 New Year Full Wolf SuperMoon

Wolf Dog at SPIRIT RHYTHM & BONE!

How FIRST can you get?!

Happy New Year! First Full Moon, Wolf Moon, of January and 2018! And it is the closest – and thereby the largest Supermoon of 2018! This Full Moon is the second in a series of three successive full moon SuperMoons occurring on December 3, 2017, January 2 Capricorn/Cancer and Jan 31 Aquarius/Leo, 2018.

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, Neptune is in Pisces his own sign, and with Saturn newly in his own sign Capricorn, we have THREE planets in their own signs on New Year Day! Two of those are outer planets that hold long term meaning. They give us time to absorb, try out the many facets of their expertise in the sign they are in. Cancer is home, family, especially women and children, and our feelings, support for our wellbeing, cycles in our lives. Neptune is the Spiritual Master, maker of music, takes us to sea, heightens our senses. Saturn is the TaskMaster, dedicated to his work, gives financial support, rules Moon’s opposite sign. Traditionally Moon and Saturn, shelter and career, Mother and Father, are united in the cause to make a good way for the children.

The Full Moon lets us into 2018 gently with her exact aspects with Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Moon trines Neptune, each intuitive, each supportive in their own way. Moon sees motion, cycles and rhythms. Generally she operates current time, makes sure we are fed and comforted, sleep well and helps us with daily family interactions. Neptune is more concerned with the greater good of all beings, our Soul, life’s meaning, is an observer of trends and our place in them. Moon serves more locally. Neptune would have us sacrifice and serve globally. They both love art and their sensitivities blend the color beams and meanings until they become one. The strong citizens Cancer grows become citizens that lead our communities.

Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune. Capricorn is the living example of responsibility, Light in action, Love accomplished. Sun Lights the way and cheers our hearts, gives the strength to follow Neptune’s dreams. Capricorns collect the working materials to build what was invisible into a work place that inspires us to make dreams come true. Capricorns are dedicated believers when they ‘see’ the way that makes ultimate good sense. They know how to bring teams to the table, aligning all their talents so perfectly. It’s just a matter of time. Sun carries Neptune’s energy forward, Venus is nearing, so you can bet Neptune’s dream will be full of grace and brings irresistible beauty. Venus will conjunct Sun Jan 8, and Venus and Sun conjunct Pluto Jan 9! There will be a blessed culmination, a grateful ending, the deep wellsprings of a new beginning, Light in places that used to be dark!

Beautiful Grand Trine/Kite in Earth and Water signs! Moon leads the formation, pushing off beyond her usual territory. She is strong in her own sign, spurred by Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio, guided by Neptune in Pisces, also in his own sign! Water signs heal and help. Moon loves her children and ‘knows’ when there is trouble. Scorpio reads his partner and the deep hidden things that need healing in all of us, impurities we carry that impinge on all others that come in contact with us, helps us safely off load and detox. We see more clearly. Pisces helps us tune in to the greater banks of spiritual wisdom, to merge and develop compassion, raise our frequency to a more refined level, global consciousness.

On the daily basis, securing safe quarters, connecting with good schools is important to Cancers. Scorpios secure the funds we need and do tremendous healing that frees us to act on our dreams. Pisces throws mysteries our way to whet our thirst for exploration beyond the average expectations. Of course there is more! We dance at concerts, go to the art museums, maybe church on Sunday, meditate and do yoga. People keep doing fantastic things! Fascinating things seep into us and we change, sometimes without even realizing.

Now, I did say Moon has the lead. But there is a lot of weight on the other side with a four planet stellium in Capricorn, Saturn in power fresh in his own sign! The weight of the whole chart is on that side! Perhaps it’s the whole group leading the way! Capricorn can be like a dozer, pushing through stubborn obstacles! Saturn knows when people are fearful, stuck in their ways, because at one time or another they have been there themselves. They know just how to get them motivated. Respect first by inviting not ordering, dangling carrots next, rewards and payoffs that make a difference. And it doesn’t have to be money! In one spiritual system, Capricorn is the sign of Ceremonial Magic. It is a sacred ritual to care for people this way. Cancer hugs, feeds, cleans up some of the mess as the whole system moves forward.

And I will be radical. Maybe they take turns leading!?

Mercury has some great big ideas in Sagittarius, but square Chiron in Pisces, Chiron isn’t ready for them yet. So keep a file of ideas to be pursued later. Find ways to talk about them that doesn’t overwhelm the more gentle folk. Learn how to drizzle them out, leave a breadcrumb trail until they can catch up, getting them used to the bits and progression of your ideas as they come along. They will be plenty excited when they arrive, thinking they thought those things up themselves! Smile.

The powerful long term background aspect is Jupiter sextile Pluto exact the first time Jan 15, the day before the New Moon! They travel closely together FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14. This aspect is strongly placed in the SuperMoon chart. The Moon trines Mars then Jupiter Jan 1 & 2, then Mars carries the energy until it conjuncts Jupiter Jan 6 and sextiles Pluto Jan 8. Moon, powerful in her own sign Cancer, trine Jupiter in Scorpio could mean incredible support for important causes. Women and children may be leaders in the news and education changes. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! New investments may be offered. Try them out. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

In Scorpio Mars is perhaps a silent partner, but is deeply courageous and terrifically on spot in Scorpio. Moon intuitively calls him to arms in her behalf for all those in danger or need. In Scorpio he can be sinuous, weaving and surfacing then going down for another look, returning with the truth of the matter, discovering how to navigate in treacherous situations. He can plant seeds along the way that dissolve some problems, allow other seeds to grow well in spite of adverse circumstances. With Jupiter, and he and Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, he may not say so, but he will offer hope for survival in a good way. Do your part.

Happy Full Moon and Happy New Year 2018!

First New Moon of 2018!
SIX Planets in Capricorn, Jupiter Sextile Pluto, Mars!

Tuesday Jan 16 at 6:17 PM Pacific, 26 Capricorn 54!

Capricorn Crescent Fairy Wings 2018 New Moon

The day before our Capricorn New Moon Jupiter sextiles Pluto, which could be wealth, super health, the mate of a lifetime! With SIX planets in Capricorn working hard for us – six ways to Sunday, including that Pluto, we will certainly be taking steps in those directions!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, so the link is in sync! Scorpio and Capricorn are pros. Scorpio makes the money that funds Capricorn’s goal! Capricorn uses it precisely, no time wasted, so the money goes further than expected. Good chance the project makes money before it is even finished! Scorpio makes astute relationships, whether personal or business. Capricorn places people well along the way, competently assessing their abilities, leading them to higher places they never knew they could get to. Health improves with happiness, and being in that right place at the right time can make us forget we ever had troubles. Good job!

Jupiter wants to educate, and Scorpio doesn’t spare the depth, perfecting every detail from inside to out! Jupiter sees the long term, so Scorpio opens his eyes below, above and beyond! This inner and outer vision at once opens all kinds of corridors. Old debris is carted away, energy is freed. Jupiter shouts the glory with a mighty song, perhaps not unlike the mischievous opera singer Cecilia Bartoli! Jupiter feels the huge support Scorpio offers with his strength and inner knowing. Scorpio is impassioned by the potential Jupiter sees and knows is within reach! See more

The Moon and Sun union is powerful! Moon goes through all the signs each cycle while the Sun is in that one sign. Moon brings facets of knowledge to Sun’s feet and he fills them with energy with all his Heart, lights them to brilliance! They can be gathered, brought to their full height, give their part wholly. At 26 Capricorn, one sign after the 26 Sagittarius Galactic Center, the insights from last month’s 26 Sagittarius New Moon are being worked into our daily lives.

Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet, starts the SIX planet Capricorn stellium! He sets the tone for integrity, responsibility, the ultimate practicality. He makes us aware of time and age, experience, has respect for wisdom. He is willing to work hard for core values, understands reality and necessity. Mercury had left him just days before, excited to carry the word about him, his principles, inspiring us to work as we can, the best we can, for what we believe in too.

  • Pluto is being sextiled by Jupiter as we have talked about above. Pluto in Capricorn can be pretty cool, even frozen, and perhaps he is glad to be warmed by optimistic Jupiter (Sagittarius’s planet) and the molten flow of his own sign, Scorpio’s underworld lava! Capricorn is looking at that mountaintop, but Pluto knows what lies below is the support the mountain needs. Hidden things, a mistaken premise, a weak link, can wreak havoc that may or may not be fixable. Better to prevent. Pluto was the God of the underworld. Listen to him, he’s seen it all.
  • Moon and Sun and Venus come next. Moon and Sun are only four degrees from the end of Capricorn. Sun has been in Cap 26 days now, knows what’s up and what is needed to complete the build. Moon in Capricorn brings her intuitive clarity, is Priestess of high womanhood, shepherds women and youngers to fulfill their missions. She and they take charge of what Sun can’t. Moon and Sun are making things whole – marrying male and female archetypes, allying young and old. Sun literally forges into new territory, higher dimensions, holds the Light in the darkest time of year. He mentors the way home.
  • At 26 degrees Moon and Sun are leaving Mars, Uranus and Chiron aspects behind, but carrying the knowledge forward. Mars inspires and has the courage to lead and act now! Uranus in Aries frees us from challenging old concepts, taildraggers, and teaches us how to unite disparate forces for common goals. Chiron asks for compassion, a stillness that we may see, for us to heal our addictions, to dream and believe. One day at a time. But Mars is right in with Uranus, then Chiron! 24, 24 and 25 degrees! Read on below….
  • Venus is mature in Capricorn, shifts out of Capricorn into Aquarius the next day. Moon catches up with her only 4 hours later, before she leaves. The two feminine planets merge to share caring and beauty, their special kind. There is a sweetness not always typical of Capricorn, and reality checks to keep them from falling for a wish rather than what is true. They know it is important to know that we humans are growing and rather than being perfect, it is the strength and quality of the striving that brings change and reward. They admire a working partner, gauge their choices by results.
  • The Sun doesn’t catch up with Venus until many signs later, Oct 26.

Mars has been traveling close with Jupiter since Dec 23, conjuncted Jupiter Jan 6. It has recently gained the foresight and farsightedness of Jupiter’s seeing, that Jupiter’s plans and picks stem from. And Jupiter’s optimism as well! Jupiter navigates successfully no matter what sign he is in! Though Mars is tremendously focused in Scorpio, even obsessed, there is still a broadening of attention, scanning for openings, quick ninja leaps through the eye of the needle!

Now at 24 Scorpio, Mars inconjunct Uranus at 24 Aries is a strange and amazing phenomenon. Things are off kilter and perfectly so. Mars is agile and enjoys the challenge! Mars is sure in Scorpio, but Uranus is swiftly unpredictable in Mars’s sign Aries! There is kinship, but it will not be a steady relationship. It may be long term, but random and erratic. It loosens the fibers of Mars in Scorpio and Mars surprises Uranus by magically appearing when no others could keep up! Mars may grab Uranus by the tail and hold him accountable – for a few moments, LOL!

Mars trines Chiron in Pisces. Chiron may hobble along at times, but Mars adroitly hurries him along, knowing Chiron likely has more ability than the old master lets on. Healing techniques and subtle business skills are shared. They can accomplish quite amazing feats together before others realize what has happened!

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Procyon in Canis Minor, the Puppy, is opposite our New Moon. Beware of growls, bites and slurpy kisses – maybe a hot temper, some violence! You have to know sequences to understand more of the meaning of stars. Bernadette Brady says: Procyon is the star that rises before the great Sirius, the Dog Star, the Shining One. It symbolizes rapid success but short-lived opportunities, for its bright rising light is quickly outshone by the rising of Sirius. Do business quickly, harvest your gains, move on! Opposite the New Moon may make you quite aware of this phenomena, especially if it triggers factors in your chart at 26.

Algol is at 26 Taurus trine the New Moon. Trines are good; Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus, you may have some personal insights. The head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Depending on who and when someone is talking, Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! As an earth sign, Capricorn is feminine though Saturnian, sometimes ruthless in business, could be an ardent artist leaving a valuable legacy of astonishing quantity! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. Likely the Capricorn stellium in trine, astrology’s best aspect, will mitigate the dark side. Capricorns are generally not afraid of the dark.

This New Moon is a worthy leader of 2018’s New Moons! It holds the successful Jupiter sextile Pluto energy. SIX Planets in Capricorn gets the job done!!! Algol will ramp things up, surreptitiously or very up front! Blessed be, carry on!
