Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Cancer Benedict Cumberbatch

From Shakespeare to Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch often plays roles he believes in. Born July 19, 1976, he has Sun in Cancer exactly square his Moon, Cancer’s planet, in activist Aries! In spite of a childlike innocent face, Benedict has an impressive array of accomplishments, and participates in many causes. Cancer is the most feminine of all the signs. She is children, Mothers, women of all ages. Benedict considers himself a feminist, as do many Cancerian men. He made his acting debut as a female, Titania, Queen of the Fairies, in A Midsummer Night’s Dream when he was 12. See his chart!

Mercury, Saturn and Venus within 4 degrees of each other in Leo give Benedict a regal and commanding bearing. The combination has given him a powerful way with words, and he has done a lot of voice roles, animation, narration and loves radio. His background in acting is solid, traditional and extensive. He knows what he’s doing with a Master of Arts in Classical Acting. Saturn’s formality really suits a Brit; he’s famous in his own land in his own time! Saturn has brought further honors. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2015 for his services to the performing arts and to charity.

Astrologically he has success written in his chart! His Sun sextiles Jupiter – personal fame, in Taurus – enduring celebrity. Saturn and Venus sextile Pluto – mega wealth, plus trine Neptune – acting. His Midheaven is Cancer the sign of the Public. He has a sense of the pulse of the people, especially women. Sun in the 10th is often well known.

The Leo stellium trine Neptune also accounts for his affinity with Buddhist philosophy, meditation and mindfulness. On the family front, Valentine’s Day 2015, independent Moon in Aries Benedict married his sweetie of 17 years, Sophia Hunter! Finally! They are now the proud parents of adorable Gemini Christopher Carlton.

After portraying Stephen Hawking in 2004, he has been an ambassador, and in 2015 patron, for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. In 2003, Cumberbatch joined the Stop the War Coalition protest in London against the Iraq War. Together with Prince Philip, Cumberbatch presented 85 young people with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at St. James Palace March 2014. Benedict joined Prince William and Ralph Lauren at Windsor Castle for a cancer awareness and fundraising gala. July 2013 he officiated at the same-sex marriage of friends. For International Women’s Day 2014, he was a signatory of Amnesty International’s letter to UK Prime Minister David Cameron for women’s rights in Afghanistan. Cumberbatch is a founding member of the “Save Soho” campaign which aims “to protect and nurture iconic music and performing arts venues in Soho.

Benedict’s contributions as an actor and philanthropist are enormous. Excerpts above from Wikipedia are just some of the highlights. May he continue to serve in great happiness.

Cancer 2016 Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Mark your calendars! Per Space.com the next exciting astronomical event is the Aug. 11-12: The Perseid meteor shower! The Perseids are considered among the best of the annual meteor showers, thanks to their reliability and high rates of up to 90 “shooting stars” per hour. This year’s peak will occur well after the moon — which will be just past first quarter — sets around midnight. [A good viewing dark sky!] There is also a possibility of a meteor outburst, which might produce an enhanced display this year. [Amazing Perseid Meteor Shower Photos of 2015]

Cancer TimeLine!

Happy Summer Solstice! Mercury is moving forward, Mars is still retrograde until June 29. We finished Jupiter square Saturn, did the second Saturn square Neptune, and Jupiter’s last mega trine Pluto is less than a week away, June 26!

The next outer planet combinations are August 12 and 13 when Jupiter finishes opposite Chiron and inconjunct Uranus! This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. 2016 opened with the second of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with the first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron – different sign, reversed aspects! What we are doing now paves the way for the next vantage point. In Libra we can incorporate our findings and these new living skills into our relationships! See more!

Continuing abiding Aspects

  • Uranus and Pluto continue in a close range square. Though no exact aspect will be formed again, the reminder of happenings since 2010 remain with us, many taking years to work through.
  • Chiron & Uranus continue in their many years long journey closely together in the background…. More


2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Cancer!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Pluto has been opposite Cancer, relentlessly scanning and scouring and at times scowling, LOL, clearing Cancer of a past it never wants to give up! Eventually some old postures are just spent, every bit of what can be is wrung out of them, not even enough tatters to wash again. Too tired to hold on any longer. Some things just need a bit of spit and polish to shine right back up again, strong and resilient. Collections are thinned, as upgrades are made. Emotions are acknowledged, some comforted, some relieved to be released. Some timing and cycles are freshened and restored, blockages removed, now humming. There may be temptations, but don’t cross the line. The power of Fathers, age, law & wisdom are more accepted. Some Fathers leave, sadness and grief for the losses. Surrender can be with shame and bitterness, or with dignity. Each has done their best.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Cancer, another psychic water sign, is more concerned with the home front, everyday life, feeding the troops, where Neptune would meditate at the ashram and just as soon fast. Cancer is the way of the householder, and Pisces is the spiritual life after that. Neptune puts perspective on how important and sacred a privilege raising our children is to the outcome in our community. It shows us how to integrate spiritual practice in our daily life. It teaches us to trust that our life’s necessities will come to us though we can’t yet see a way that can happen. Neptune’s compassion is essential to recognizing we each have our own special Path no matter what a loving parent may want for us. Cancer may be called on to reach beyond the ordinary to the magical! Dreams and visions become the image or art we make!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Cancers aren’t usually thrilled with all the change this threatens. They want food on the table at the right time, gotta get the kids to school on time, and get to work to support everyone. None of this fancy running around, adult play time. But for the Cancer in business, they are intrigued by what’s new and being one of the first investors! Small test amounts are in order. Their fine intuition helps them choose what will fly with the public, and whether it is a fad or here to stay! Oh, heck, and maybe they have been too stodgy and it’s time to take a little break, stuff the kids in the SUV and wander with reckless abandon on the adventure of a lifetime! Have fun!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Right up Cancer’s ally! Money in the bank, insurance, works well for them. If any little cures are needed, good chance they will get them. The Mother/Father alliance is super important to them, so this is a good time to pick a proper mate and make it legal, especially if better for taxes. Buy the home. Cancers are forever students, so Chiron’s teachings are quite welcome. Herbs and foods build our bodies in a good way, keep us healthy, heal ailments, help us stay young!

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Cancer can be the obedient child to Saturn, ruler of Capricorn the Father authority, but continual harsh treatment or undoable expectations means a constant state of recovery, possibly eventual breakdown. As an adult, you can choose to be with supportive companions in jobs where they love you and you all love what you are contributing to the world together! Each of you cheers the other, abundance flowing. It’s contagious! Happy you, happy customers. Sagittarius is one off from the opposition in Capricorn, a sign to the side. Cancer may think they have found their savior, a big thinker who is optimistic! But this teacher is a traveler and most Cancers stay home after all. Get what you get and let go. Worldly Sagittarius may be out of Cancer’s comfort zone, but it sure is interesting to take a look!

Jupiter in Virgo knows what the right food at the right time can do for you and Cancer is more a foodie than a nurse! Cancers do nurture, but it more a comfort than a science. They aren’t so far apart that they can’t work it out. Intuitive Cancer senses what’s important to Virgo, who obviously cares a great deal, and Cancer learns how to tune up the menu! Jupiter sees the big picture, Virgo makes suggestions on which house will require the least maintenance, have less utility charges, is more sustainable. Jupiter may help you find that job you have been hoping for by spiffing up your resume with great qualities you never realized you had! Oddly, you may find yourself going to Church or doing some volunteer work close to home and heart!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. As far as Cancer is concerned, that’s fine as long as you have permission and aren’t trespassing! Jupiter in Libra is surprised when you disagree with them, but if it’s a serious matter you might find yourself in court! And they have friends. They usually mean well, and would love to open your space to information they have found in their travels. They love different cultures, philosophies, art. Likely they would rather eat out than at your place. Might be good for you to get out more! Expect to be photo bombed, they are having a good time and want you to too! But how much can you stand? Better as house guests though they will probably leave sooner than planned on their own, off to see more other friends, visit the new ones they just met while with you! Fun while it lasted!

 

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

Have a great new year!

Cancer Parents, Profound Activists!

Cancer Proud Parent Family Natural Activists

Some of the most amazing women have strong Cancerian factors in their charts. Jk Rowling, children’s magical storyteller, has 4 planets in the lunar (Cancerian) 4th house. Josephine Baker, famous activist jazz singer with Neptune conjunct Venus in Cancer, adopted 12 children from around the world. Leo romance novelist Danielle Steel, Moon in Cancer, has NINE children! Young Pakistani Malala Yousafzai, activist for children’s education, is a Cancer. Law & Order actress Aquarian Mariska Hargitay has her Moon in the 4th (lunar house) sextile her Cancer descendant. She plays a Mom in Law & Order, has one child of her own, two adopted, established the Joyful Heart Foundation, which provides recovery help for victims of sexual abuse. She walks her talk.

Though Cancer is THE feminine sign, the sign of women, many fabulous men with Cancerian factors in their charts have tirelessly supported our heroines and children. Champion men athletes are famous for working with kids, developing their self esteem, encouraging them to learn, extend their reach in life. In India, Capricorn 2014 Nobel winner Kailash Satyarthi, described as an excellent cook (a Cancerian talent), has acted to protect the rights of more than 83,000 children from 144 countries to stop child slavery so they can go to school.

Every day Cancer parents go to bat for their kids. Shelter. Food. Health care. The best school possible. They teach them good living skills. They hug and hold. Often sacrifice. Parents work hard, do their best to be the living example of successful relationships. That’s grassroots activism.

Emotions and sensitivity have long been ranked as weakness, yet Caner intuition, instinctive reactions have saved the day too many times to discount this uncanny skill. True, we don’t have to act on our emotions every time. Another life skill.

Cancers are forever scholars, absorbing life just as fast as they can. Their memories run deep, and they can cull what no longer serves. That sideways step of the Crab dodges the danger just in time. Knowing what people are feeling, sensing the weather, having a fine attunement to cycles, gives Cancers an accurate assessment to invest wisely, whether property, the stock market or choice of safe people for their kids to hang out with or maybe to help raise money to fund a cause.

Most activism starts right at home with a dream, an ideal, love, wanting the best for our children. It can be in the garden, the classroom, standing up to a bully, in the shopping center parking lot, walking for breast cancer, asking for that raise, starting our own business, cooking dinner together. Simple things, but each part is important, contributing to a well rounded Spirit and a rich life. It’s unspoken inspiration. What can’t be done alone can often be done together. Family counts.

It may be for our own dear children, or the children of the world. “I raise up my voice – not so that I can shout, but so those without a voice can be heard.” — Malala Yousefzi, July 12, 1997  See her incredible story and her chart

Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Cancer Women Dancing Circle Sark Quote

Girlfriends by Melody Morgan. Her thoughts: This circle can be comprised of both female and male but I can tell you, the women are the most precious.

Women need other women. They always do. It is a special bond. It is like no other. Our circle, our posse, our tribe, our girlfriends. They become more and more important as we grow older. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, girlfriends are the mainstays of our life.

Thank you for our divine connection to each other….

Full Strawberry Moon – Sun Cancer, Summer Solstice!

Full Buck Moon! – Uranian T Square Inconjunct Mars Links to Grand Water Trine!


Gemini Full Strawberry Moon, Sun Cancer ~ Summer Solstice!
Mutable Cross, Grand Square ~ Jupiter Trine Pluto!

Monday June 20, 4:02 AM Pacific at 29 Gemini/Sagittarius 33

Full Strawberry Moon

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each supported an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brought in Gemini, and Mercury turned forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opened the new cycle that set up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon happens just before, the same day the Sun goes into Cancer, and supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune was three days ago preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct. A few days after the 29th energy will be released, starting a forward momentum.

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that,  will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be. x

New Moon – Cancer Stellium, Sirius opposite Pluto, Grand Water Trine!

Monday July 4, 4:01 AM Pacific at 12 Cancer 54

New Moon Milky Way Lakeside Summer Camping Lighted Tent

It’s SUMMER! Grab family and friends, take the camera and let’s camp under the holy stars!

After our recent intensity of three outer planets aspects March through June, we can take time now to assimilate whatever challenges and joys came our way. Cancer can be broody moody, and that’s just fine. Someone’s got to do it. Think of it as a hen sitting her eggs. No telling what will hatch! We keep the ideas warm and incubating, we stay fertile. People walk by and add to our clutch. Our feelings swirl and another new idea is born! Cancers are masters at germination.

This is our first Moon after the outer planet aspects. These last 28 days Mother Moon has been collecting and storing all the bits from all the signs and culminations of the aspects, letting them roll in the bowl and merge, knitting their own kind of strength. Moon is full in her own way as she meets Father Sun. He enLightens the brew, energizes the union, new beginning are given the vital warmth to emerge!

Our Cancer New Moon is between Mercury and Venus also in Cancer! A four planet stellium plus the fixed star Sirius in Cancer! Mother Moon and Father Sun are snuggling among the pillows, likely canoodling. Spooning is a favorite whether together or sharing the sweetest meal. Children are often the hoped for outcome.

The New Moon is just over a degree approaching the fixed star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky in Canis Major, has figured prominently in legends all over the world. The Dogstar, aka the Heavenly Wolf by some, is closest to the Earth in Summer, especially July and August and can even be seen in daytime. That’s where the phrase “dog days of summer” came from. The Dogstar is one of the two hunting dogs of the great hunter Orion. Per constellationsofwords.com ‘Well connected, it promises fame, honors and riches, excellent for military, lawyers and civil servants. …in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. With Moon: Success in business, influential friends of opposite sex, favorable for the father, good health, beneficial changes in home or business.’ Cancers and dogs are noted for their loyalty and their fierce protection of our loved ones. Opposite Pluto, there could be real reasons to double check security at home and business locations. Prevention and mindfulness.

As much as we think of New Moon’s as a dark time, it certainly isn’t for the Moon and Sun! There is nothing but brilliant Light where they are together! Sun bestows his great heart of Light fully, entirely infusing Mama Moon, recharging her. She gives unconditionally, has the huge responsibility to manage the household – all that stuff, and all those dear humans – and needs every bit of that restoration. Father Sun is always giving as big as possible, not just to his own family, but to all! He carries a lot of weight. Mama puts her arms around him and tells him what a true hero he is and just like that, he is recharged too! Happens every 28 days, but in the sign Cancer more emphasis is on Mama Moon in her own sign. The next New Moon will be his turn in Leo, Father Sun’s own sign.

Mercury in Cancer has already been giving it a lot of thought…or should I say feeling?! Where to live, how to support the family, sometimes considering installing mother-in-law quarters, or a place for Grandma and Grandpa to help with the kids. It can be a good investment to keep the elders happy and healthy, to make them know how much they are valued and still able to contribute. Mercury in Cancer’s intuition is fabulous at managing funds. Through its extensive family and community contacts, it knows when to invest, what to invest in, when to hold, and always has the family’s long term needs in mind. There is always a fall back fund that is untouchable. Through those same contacts, business connections can be abundant and there can be multiple income sources.

Mercury at 9 Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces and inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. Neptune is water planet known for it’s intuition. Mercury is logical, more with the facts and data, while Neptune is the dreamer capable of visions that well exceed, transcend, any array of sensibility! Saturn wants to harness the horse and focus on the potential, build the dream step by step, using every bit of data Mercury can dredge up! It won’t always be a comfortable combination. That Saturn and Neptune just squared, a challenge aspect, June 17 for the second time. They will do so again, the last time, September 10. This New Moon will give some insights about how powerfully femininity, women, home & family, culture, feelings, factor in.

Venus in Cancer has a sweet smile and is blessed with an exceptional loving kindness. It can be a little acquisitive, and may be thought of as being selfish sometimes. And that’s likely true too. Gotta take care of yourself. Balance is the key. It’s good to think we are worthy. Good that we model that for our loved ones. Good that we go for the good things in life that in turn will contribute to the happiness of others as well. Venus in Cancer is good in marketing and advertising – art, photography. Historical and old things, geneology, make our story rich, give us an anchor in busy modern life.

Venus makes three exciting aspects!

  • She is separating sextile Jupiter in Virgo. Venus is adorable, attractive in demeanor, seductive at times, highly valued. She loves adornment of all kinds, but in Cancer especially lunar themes, corsets, garments that emphasize her lovely bosom! She loves bed and breakfasts, meals at a sumptuous eatery that feels like home, a snuggly cave-like shelter, likes a camper rather than a camp! Venus makes money, and Jupiter knows just how to manage it to make it more! Percentages are the name of the game. Jupiter wants to teach what Venus does without thinking. Jupiter, now in Virgo, wants to tell the delicious story and bring the nursing department up to par. Together they can give knockout seminars! Traveling in comfort is good as long as the budget stays in line.
  • Grand Water Trine! Venus with Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces! Spas, nurturing healing. Venus will let go of some of her old collections if it will bring a great price for a good cause. Cleansing, letting go, recycling opens doors to greater earnings, simply enjoying each other’s company! It’s clear there is more to life than the material. Scorpio, though a money sign, is the number one sign of therapists, saves your life, awakens the Kundalini, the fire at the base of your spine, bringing a burning passion that must be lived! Chiron knows well we have our wounds, have struggled and suffered, each in our own way, and has become more compassionate, a true healer and teacher. We aren’t just here solely for ourselves. What affects one affects all. Venus’s love is crucial to the courage it takes to be on and stay with this journey.

    Mars inconjunct Uranus in Aries is not at rest. He’s always twitchy in Scorpio. Scorpio is a darkish place, private, more secretive, behind the scenes power, where Mars’ true nature is so very upfront, tell it like it is right now and let’s get on with it! Uranus in Aries is a lot more like Mars! And Aries is Mars’ sign! Uranus may be strange, but it’s new, a genius on the cutting edge and Mars is a leader! So being invisible and waiting in Scorpio is going to be a challenge. But if revelation becomes important, Mars will be the one to spring it! Mars has seen a lot while rooting around, and some of that stuff needs to be spilled. Scorpio is thought to be the one who cleanses, but Mars burns it out, cauterizes the wound and because it’s clean, it heals fast! Uranus is the community, networks of people, the internet, so with all that potential support, Mars may feel like it can do it now. Get a leg up and go for it! Both Mars and Uranus are split second fast, so adjustments can be made as you go!
  • Venus square Uranus in Aries! Believe me, Venus in Cancer is quite different than Uranus in Aries! If she’s bored, she will love it, design and put up the posters, revel in the blast into the future from right when she walks in the door! If she’s afraid, it might take some doing to get her to that party! She may be glad another is leading the good fight and gently lend her energy along the sidelines serving a healthy meal that looks good and tastes good too! If conservative, she may be shocked. Unable to unsee what she saw, she is changed. It may take some time, but she will think on it and find a better way. Some of what happens may be a now or never situation. The aspect isn’t exact until July 7 at 7:24 AM Pacific. I would err to the cautious side. Make test investments; see how it goes over a longer time.

Moon and Sun are at 12 degrees sextile Jupiter 17 Virgo and opposite Pluto 16 Capricorn.

Cancer is a forever scholar sign. Jupiter is college level learning. Virgo loves manuals. The sextile aspect is opportunity type connections, in this case Cancer to Virgo. Cancer is the nurturer, Virgo the caregiver. Growing and learning are happy companions. Making sure people have what they need to learn, that the learning system really works, that there is funding to take care of things, and that there is a safe place to learn, are important. Jupiter and Pluto recently trined. Perhaps some doors were opened for funding options that hadn’t been available before. If the system is too old, reasonable upgrades can be made now. Stay with it and follow through. Perhaps a property purchase is in the offing, a career adjustment or location change. Retirement. There could be an application to change some laws that we have outgrown. Time to let go, reach out, rebuild. Mercury and Sun both complete the opposition July 7, 4:54 AM (essentially on the do business daytime of the 6th) and 3:24 PM Pacific respectively. With those and the Venus square Uranus also the 7th, the 7th brings the culmination of some important considerations. 

This New Moon is sweet but with a little bit of bite too!x

Full Buck Moon! – Uranian T Square Inconjunct Mars Links to Grand Water Trine!

Tuesday July 19, 3:56 PM Pacific at 27 Cancer/Capricorn 40

Full Moon Lake Tahoe CA Summer Pine Trees Rocks

Beautiful Lake Tahoe CA Full Moonset by dedicated photographer Mark Larrea!

Cancer and Capricorn both know the importance and strength of the foundation of the sacred Past, and who better to carry the energy forward?! They both recently made a T Square with Uranus, Uranus at the T point. First is the Sun July 16 at 6:31 AM Pacific, then Moon, just before the Full Moon, reminding us, at 10:06 AM Pacific. Change is befalling us and activating growth from and to many directions! Sometimes we underestimate our friends that carry awakening to the future, but often the greatest inventions and discoveries are made when we take that one step beyond our Past, out of the box! Welcome the blessing.

Mars too made an aspect with Uranus, in fact, due to Mars having been retrograde, it has been in a prolonged inconjunct, allowing a 3 degree range, since June 6. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5, but this one is more significant because it is when Mars makes it station direct, turns forward. The second aspect, during Mars retrograde, was June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. It carries that energy with it to the present time. The inconjunct was continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. It’s still close. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Though inconjuncts are askew and sometimes take us temporarily off track. Even if uncomfortable, we see new things that open our consciousness. These two planets have kinship. Mars is the current ruler, planet associated with Aries, the sign Uranus is in now. Mars is currently in Scorpio, the sign Mars also used to rule. Both are warrior signs, Aries the front line fighter, with the courage of the first responder fighting fires; Scorpio is the ninja therapist midnight requisition specialist, that saves the day in the dark, from behind and within. Sneaky devil, but ever so potent, revelation on the way. Kundalini and resurrection go hand in hand. Sex is great or not at all! Uranus is a lot kinky, unusual/exceptional to say the least, electric and proud of it! So sometimes we don’t have a clue what’s going on; other times it’s all in our face! Ha! Great to be alive! Unpredictable but definitely on course!

Grand Water Trine! Sun trined Mars July 16 at 8:45 PM Pacific after Sun squared Uranus in the wee hours of the morning. What built up all week long to a possibly unsettling 14th, 15th, gets quickly integrated and swiftly taken care of the 16th! Act on what’s in your heart to do! Sun and Mars are both physical, even in water signs! Take a good swim, snorkel, paddle! Get your molecules humming! Maybe get with someone you love! Then alternate a great hot bath/spa, cold shower routine! Refreshing and exhilarating!

Mars completes the Grand Water Trine! He is sure there is potential because he just had a healthy consult with Chiron in Pisces July 17 at 4:42 AM Pacific (essentially the 16th also). Where there’s a will there’s a way! Scorpio is shrewd, and Chiron in Pisces is insightful beyond measure, together clever! Both have an eye to business, and if there is a healing spiritual component to the enterprise, even better. Mars encourages Chiron to trust himself, instead of stewing, stewarding! Chiron has Mars somewhat at his mercy because he sees the obsessions that hold him prisoner in Scorpio. Chiron sees the potential when freed. Mars is potently in station, about to turn forward, direct, in only 10 days on June 29. It will be a slow restart, but strong. It will clear the conduit to core molten purity. It will be steeped in corrective process, focused on a wellspring of power to release the old, develop what’s innovative.

Moon sextiles Mars just 4 juicy hours before the Full Moon at 12:12 PM Pacific. Moon in Capricorn can seem stone cold, but you can bet there will be a realistic appraisal. If merited, you will get a golden report, your efforts well noted. Capricorn knows hard good work when it sees it and respectfully gives honor. The Mars/Capricorn combination could still be a little testy even though sextiles indicate opportunities, because Capricorn is the father figure/boss, and Mars, especially in Scorpio, prefers not being told what to do and dislikes scrutiny of their private doings, what they do and how and when they do it. Better if Capricorn hires Mars as an independent doing piece work. Mars gives powerfully. He is always inspirational in some regard, sparks the ignition, an initiation. If Moon in Cap has relied on their previous standing, Mars may shrewdly surreptitiously suggest they stand taller, make a bigger sweep, do some inventive research, upgrade, add some new juice!

What a powerful backdrop this Full Moon has!

Cancer and Capricorn are guardians of the hearth, and make sure we have shelter to raise our young. There is no more sacred duty of procreation than to give new beings the opportunity to carry the Light in a good way. Cancer holds the babies with love. Capricorn shows them how to professionally serve their community, take their place in the world in a good way. These signs hold fast the basic tenets of our lives. Full Moons invite us to open our hearts, spread our wings as wide as we can, embrace the potential in ourselves and others.

This Full Moon is the culminating aspect while the Moon is in Capricorn, then the Moon starts what we astrologers call VC, Void of Course. That’s like a free zone. Nothing comes of some things started in that corridor until the moon changes signs. That will be from 3:56 PM to until the Moon enters Aquarius 8:10 PM Pacific. Others speculate there is nothing to stop us. Could be a good time to simply consider things, let your Spirit meander. Blessed be.

Taurus Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Wife Priscilla Chan AstrologyFacebook founder Taurus Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan. See Mark’s chart

May 14, 1984 Taurus Mark Zuckerberg, age 32 in 2016, Cofounder, Chairman and CEO, Facebook, comes in at $48.2B (Forbes). Comfortable T Shirts are his favorite. His wealth is #6 in the US, Bill Gates is first at $75B.

Sun and Venus in Taurus opposite Moon and 3 other planets in Scorpio, both money signs. Venus trines Jupiter in Capricorn, and Jupiter sextile Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and the intuitive Moon, is impeccable timing. Venus trines the ASC to make a Grand Trine in Earth signs. Pluto is at 0 Scorpio, in it’s own sign, sextile Neptune at 0 Capricorn, new arrivals, fresh, new things to do for the world! As Pluto comes in, it’s opposite Mercury at 29 Aries at the last degree of the first sign! Astute and immediate financial insights, fast to take advantage of the timing. Ascendant is Virgo, organized, the accountant, works the percentages, puzzle solver, the more pieces the merrier! A complex man.

He started as a programmer at age 12! He founded Facebook when he was 15, dropped out of Harvard as a sophomore, and the story goes on from there.

Mark and Priscilla met 11 years ago, and typical Taurus, took a long time for them to marry. Priscilla is a Pisces with likely a Taurus Moon – birth time unknown. Her grandmother only speaks Chinese. So she taught Mark Mandarin and that was the language he used to tell her grandmother he and Priscilla were engaged! All his Scorpio accounts for his love of privacy. The wedding was a surprise for all of the guests, who thought they were attending a medical school graduation party for Chan, which was true, but the wedding was the bonus!! Now Chan has been dubbed the “first lady” of Facebook!

When they became parents December 1, 2015, to celebrate the milestone, they announced plans to give 99% of their Facebook stock — nearly all of their wealth — to charitable causes during their lifetime. That sounds amazing, but they are already well known for their generosity. The Chronicle of Philanthropy placed Zuckerberg and his wife at the top of the magazine’s annual list of 50 most generous Americans for 2013, having donated roughly $1 billion to charity.

May all you Tauruses live long and prosper.

Taurus 2016 Highlights!

2016 April 24-26 Astronomy Moon Mars Saturn Antares Scorpio

April 24- 26 use the Moon to find the planets Mars and Saturn, and the star Antares in Scorpio! If you don’t already know Antares, whose location within the constellation Scorpius makes it very noticeable, you can distinguish Saturn from Antares by color. Saturn shines steadily with a golden hue, while Antares sparkles more and appears redder in color.

If the bright moon makes it hard to discern color, try looking with binoculars.

Due to Mars retrograding, Mars, Saturn and Antares will make a triangle in our sky for months to come, eventually catching up with Saturn on August 25, 2016.

Taurus TimeLine!

Taurus has several factors that carry on all through and past Taurus time this year. It is the foundation for and connecting us to the future. Jupiter squares Saturn until May 26. The very day the Sun enters Taurus, Mercury is at the Transit of Mercury degree. That sequence extends to June 3. Mars is retrograde until June 29.

Continuing abiding Aspects

  • Chiron & Uranus continue in their many years long journey closely together in the background…. More

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Taurus!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Sun in Taurus is trine with Pluto in Capricorn depending on whether the degrees are close enough. If not the Sun, other Taurus factors in your chart may make the trine. Pluto is a corporate wealthy planet in an old family business sign Capricorn. They are here to stay, not uprooted without a battle to the last gasp. Taurus, however, may be so simple and sensible in their propositions that Pluto Capricorn is simply charmed into submission. Pluto feels safe, Taurus is just doing what makes sense. No worries. The gentle and the giant work well together. Pluto rules Scorpio the sign opposite Taurus, and Pluto will always have it’s secrets. Know going in you won’t know everything, and have Plan Bs and backup ideas should you need them. Keep regular watch and be mindful of security breaches. Document your contributions, and don’t let your ideas be stolen. Pluto cleans up, rebuilds, and thrifty Capricorn prolongs the use of goods you have on your premises. Not only is the debris gone, it’s been recycled and transformed!

Neptune is in its own sign,at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Taurus is the earth we walk barefoot on, grow our veggies in, the animals nest on at night. Earthquakes come but not often. Neptune is spiritual and psychic sensing the slightest change, what you are really all about. Taurus knows the weather, their sense of touch tells them everything. They are so patient and still that at times, they ‘see.’ Neptune makes art and music; Taurus sculpts and makes pottery, and often have the most beautiful hypnotic melodious voices. They are so different and have a lot in common. Neptune dilutes some of the Taurus stubborn. Taurus helps ground wandering Neptunian mystics and saviors. Combining their talents working on environmental matters would be one way to please them both.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Taurus just watches as they fly by, waiting for the dust to settle, waiting for them to wear out, slow down, so they can talk. Uranus in fiery Aries is mixed. They would like to have everyone on board. They can see Taurus can hold a key support point, keep the troops focused and steady. But they may never slow enough to make the connection themselves, or stay with it. Their recovery time is as fast as the action! They like their freedom to create, change at every breath, and Taurus likes relaxing and being comfortable. A motivated Taurus can work forever once started, but may end up admiring from afar since Uranus is not always of this world. Great as neighboring passengers on a short flight! Taurus is gifted with a buzz that tingles all day, and an idea worth fleshing out.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Taurus loves a long time partner they can depend on and a productive business. Pisces the Believer and visionary works well with Taurus, confirming Taurus instincts, guiding them accurately. Chiron the Healer understands the deep values of Taurus and helps make a charming match of heart and Soul. Chiron as Teacher delivers information for Taurus to consider, knowing it will make a strong root and be well cared for. Taurus sits with it, turns the soil, becomes one with its essence. Taurus magnetizes Chiron, helping Chiron see more of the beauty of this world. Rather than the escapism Pisces sometimes has, Taurus shows them the worth of being here, right here, in union.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius it is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Saturn is helpful with Taurus. Together they can build things, terracing earthworks and the finest masonry stairways, if Saturn doesn’t run away with Sagittarius! Plus, all those Sagittarian foreign ideas from other places take some getting used to. And just when you get used to one, they either change their mind or add another new idea. Consarnit! Admittedly it’s interesting and fun to decipher, but it delays getting things done and keeps you up at night wondering if you can keep up. Saturn needs to give some regular praise along this path…. Taurus helps adapt new ideas to needs of the locals and directly shows how things are better than before.

Jupiter in Virgo brings Taurus great joy! Virgo loves its system and Taurus enjoys smooth working order, getting things done sooner, getting what they made to market in fine condition! They both often love plants and animals, so crops and beekeeping, or caring for animals is sweet. Taurus is not really a bookkeeper, analyst, but can see the value of hiring someone that knows what they are doing and can steer them more accurately in the right direction. Calling in a good veterinarian saves time, or working with the university cooperative extension. A climate change aware landscaper expert with water saving expertise and who has native plants savvy can change how you live significantly. Minimizing your utility expenses, up your home values! Be a good earth steward!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Taurus usually likes the comforts of home, but a sumptuous meal out will tempt them – but not one of those skimpy fru fru diet plates! Doesn’t matter what gourmet chef makes it, and less expensive is preferred. Libra loves fine art; Taurus likes the simple beauty of Nature the most. Forget the air conditioning, no makeup, no perfumes. Jupiter likes to go places, and Libra loves anthropology. Taurus makes their own organic tribe, lots of kids, family working together. Libra and Taurus, though both Venus signs, are better as friends. That way Taurus gets to see the world vicariously, learning in its own comfort zone. Jupiter loves to visit and move on anyway. Libra may enjoy taking some time out here with you, bed and breakfast style, meet the locals, learn what makes your community the charming place it is.

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

Have a great new year!

Taurus ~ Worthy Beyond Words!

Taurus Shangri-la Meadow southeast of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, Yunnan ProvinceShangri-la, the mysterious wonderland, has long been believed situated in the southeast of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, Yunnan Province. April showers bring May flowers. That’s Taurus.

Shangri-la must have been built by the Gods and Goddesses of Taurus! Everyday they make Beauty in every breath, without really thinking about it. It’s just who they are. Venus is their planet.

One of their secrets is Stillness. It’s a sacred form of Patience, an immediate form of meditation. They can be motionless or in unstoppable momentum, on a mission of Divine purpose.

Solidarity is a word we hear about them. They are dependable, consistent as the day is long. Businesses and organizations they found are long lived. They serve basic needs of living from food, commodities, to the elegance of the internet, cell phones that let us communicate wherever we are. Reliable services and vehicles with comfort and dependable tires are part of their contribution.

Their patience is legendary. They offer their arm when we feel faint. They step in with groceries and spending money when needed. They may help us with our property and repairs. They have innate strength both as lifters and wrestlers, putting our lives back in order. How incredibly kind, loving us when sometimes we don’t love ourselves yet. If a Taurus wants to help you, know that they see what is worthy and valuable in you!

Taurus is one with the land, barefoot Earth Spirits. Gentle and kind with animals. They love furs and can calm where there is panic. They persevere with care and daily tending, are remarkable with plants, people and animals in recovery. They often know what the weather will be before anyone else knows. Magnificent sheltering Oak trees, a long lived hard wood, are their special trees.

Touch makes such a difference. When Taurus takes us in their arms we know we are cherished even if they are complete strangers. Massages they give are heavenly. Not only are they soothing, but when our body gets reconnected by their touch, we are activated intuitively as well as physically. Our instincts are back on board. We take care of ourselves better again. Making love is sweet.

Owning things is pure pleasure. Good food, sumptuous though perhaps simple living, a spa, a workout room. A great veggie garden, outdoor dining, a farm party with family and friends. Flannel sheets and sweets. Money in the counting house. Even you! Yep. They can be accused of being possessive, and sometimes that’s divine. Being well loved is reassuring when it’s wanted and mutual.

You’ve heard of that legendary slow burn temper? Head for the hills! If they get mad, there’s usually a good reason. After things cool down, be ready with lots of understanding, maybe you owe some apologies. Don’t be continually rude to a bull; you really aren’t being clever at all. It adds up and there will come a day. Taking advantage will have consequences. Though seemingly slow at times, don’t confuse that with stupid. They take their time to thoughtfully ruminate, give the benefit of the doubt, but they can put you on the street in a second once they make up their mind. Prenups might be wise for you Tauruses.

The flowers they bring are living, in a pot, something they grew themselves. They often dress for comfort and work, but they clean up well too. What a prize! Tauruses are good with kids, kind and helpful to elders. They are steady in the Light doing the great businesses of Mother Earth. They honor Mother’s Day and Earth Day is the celebration for the intended perpetuation of their good works.

Tauruses are our everyday heroes, profound and worthy beyond words.

Full Worm Moon Lunar Eclipse! Jupiter Square Saturn
New Moon  4 Planets in Aries, Jupiter Opposite Neptune!

Full Worm Moon Lunar Eclipse! Jupiter Square Saturn
Wednesday March 23, 5:01 AM Pacific at 3 Libra 17

Worm Full Moon Eclipse March 2016 Aries Candle

Taking a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon bath by Aries candlelight…….

Sunrise and Sunset are the Aries and Libra times of day. Aries brings the new dawn each day and Libra is the gathering time, breaks bread and shares the experiences of the day with loved ones and fellows at the end of the day. Peace is made.

Moon in Libra tends the harmony of the tribe. She is the go between in difficult situations. She initiates and brokers deals, negotiates the terms with balance and fairness. She upholds the law, and generally upholds standards of beauty and grace. Venus is Libra’s planet. Libra Moon’s light shines with Love and gratitude, seal the deal.

Sun in Aries is at times belligerent, and always a super champion! Sun is spirited in Aries, an intuitive risk taker, proactive! Independence is an important goal, and Aries is the first to step out of the box, a leader without giving it a thought!

They may be opposite, but the ECLIPSE puts them in exact alignment! It’s not close, it’s right on! When the neighborhood needs something done, they can work together perfectly. Libra makes the request, Aries doesn’t hesitate! Aries has a cause, Libra gathers the clan!

With three planets in Aries, Mercury/Sun and Uranus, and Mercury/Sun trines Aries’ planet Mars, while Moon sextiles Mars, there is an abundance of Aries energy! Give them something to do!!! Mercury and Sun together, they are of one mind, faster than the blink of your eye! The planetary links are excellent, a swift flow, and opportunities are at your fingertips! Uranus gives a tweak and a peek at wild opportunities headed for the future and humankind!

Mars in Sagittarius trine with Mercury/Sun takes this ECLIPSE off to the far reaches of the Universe! Think big and do it! Visit the master, seek spiritual guidance for clarity of your Path. Visit the expert for training and how to. Make an alliance, then all of you go and do your special parts! What was just a wish is happening!!! Publish, get the word out! Take a few days vacation, get some new perspective, be refreshed!

Mars in Sagittarius sextile Moon! Mama Moon lays it all down. She may stay home, but she has that power of family, our source of life from the womb. Mars can tantrum, whine, threaten, but Mother’s just look at you and ask if you are finished. When you calm down, talk it out. She has special intuition in context of knowing your capacity and inner beliefs. Moon in Libra can balance your powerful desires with your good place among your people. Sometimes she pins your ears back, other times she calls you to take the responsibility of your highest potential, knowing your people will support you. Her blessings mean a lot, especially as the ECLIPSE gates are open and the opportunity to step through is here!

Jupiter so recently trined Pluto March 16. We are still under those blessings. Now, Venus sextiles Pluto! Jupiter brings good luck, fame, growth and with Pluto wealth if well connected with your chart! Venus is Love, beauty and with Pluto financial blessings, again, if well connected with your chart at this time! Jupiter, a slow moving outer planet gives long term gain. Venus is potent for about 3 days, but if done well, can lend a lasting worthy value in addition to Jupiter’s promises!

Venus in Pisces is kindness and love, affection and appreciation, a spiritual bond. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, gives a deep intimacy. Besides sharing wealth, a loyal bond can be forged for life. Go for the true love rather than the seductive glitter.

At 3:15 AM Pacific, just before the Eclipse at 5:01 AM Pacific, Jupiter Retrograde squares Saturn. This is their second square, they will be in continuous close square until the third and final one May 26.

Saturn has his rules and personal sense of timing. Jupiter is like a Labrador puppy, tail wagging the vase off the table, dashing about wanting to go out and play, cuteness personified warming your heart! Puppies need training, and Saturn, the intuitive wise Master, can do it. In humans, Saturnian people can be a little down from time to time, lack confidence. They might mask it by taking over and intimidating us to compliance. Jupiterians just laugh. You want me to do what? By when?! No way, you know the surf’s up, I’ll see you later! You gotta enjoy their unabashed truthfulness, their exuberance and lack of concern about your fears. They just know things are gonna be ok. Yup. And usually they are!

Jupiter cheers you up and has magnanimous maximus plans, which they seem fully capable of doing! They are generous and have a sense of wellbeing that is contagious and inspiring. Saturn gives them the job, helps steer them, keeps focus, makes the deadlines fun! There ARE serious moments, occasional discipline needed, and that’s ok. It’s a natural cycle.

This aspect before the ECLIPSE breaks open the old shells, outdated facades of powers we used to use, that are perhaps making us tired to keep holding onto. Jupiter the teacher of great faith stepping into the beyond, lets us learn new ways that are so much more fun and get the job done faster and more better! Time to let go, make space to update, take on more meaningful committments!

See lots more about Jupiter square Saturn….

This is a Spring, Worm Moon ECLIPSE. Think how powerful these little beings are! They make the rich soil we grow our food in, all very quietly hardworking, mostly unseen. Few people even talk to them or give them thanks. Let us honor their tribe at this time.

Visibility: During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth’s main shadow does not cover the Moon. The Earth’s shadow (umbra) misses the Moon. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon. Check this site for visibility at your location!

New Moon – 4 Planets Aries, Jupiter Opposite Neptune!
Thursday April 7 at 4:24 AM Pacific – 18 Aries 04

Aries New Moon Dark Sky Stars
The dark fiery sky of an Aries New Moon

Four planets in Aries, an Aries Stellium! First is Venus! She loves a challenge, invites teammates to step up! Wherever she goes, looking good adds to the glory of her presence and gets her there faster! Being the first to make a new connection, welcoming new associates and neighbors, brings the community together in sharing. Comfortable active wear with bright colors and cool air flow make things go smoothly! What a great run and a super cause!

Then is the New Moon with Uranus! Independence and Freedom too! Mothers get out and do more things they always wanted to! They cheer their children on! What is in our hearts is in our action. Encouraging words, being there to support, makes all the difference. Being, looking different, is a form of leadership without any words spoken. People look at you because they want to be their unique selves too. Inspiration automatically happens and people come with you. They like your courage, your verve, how amazing you are! It’s a pleasure, and more fun than you have ever had!

Venus is trine Mars, the Aries planet. Venus is generally a Sweetie, but in Aries and with Mars, she has more zing than expected! Mars is in Sagittarius and has a mind to sweep that little beauty off her feet! They could go many places together. They could go to school, travel abroad, find the publisher for that book. Going to the gym is fun and trail running to a magnificent viewpoint is Spirit filling! Sex in the tent, the bell tower, back of the sportscar. Mmm…. Quick new investments could bring them fast returns to fund exciting ventures. They might not spend a lot of time in Church, but their jaunts have meaning and purpose.

Mercury in Taurus was just semi-sextile, a sign away, from Venus in Aries. Venus is Taurus’s planet, so there is an extra affinity between them. Venus has sweet initiative in Aries. Mercury in Taurus sees that value and wants to tell all the neighbors about it. You may have just met a good looking new neighbor that you share ideas with and agree to do some things together. Or you may be the new neighbor and it’s time to make some connections! Talk about what you hope for. New ideas are likely to give you some insights on how to go about it.

Jupiter retrograde in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces. The aspect does not become exact because Jupiter turns direct, forward, at 13 degrees, but it is felt nonetheless. Jupiter in Virgo likes a precise target, a clear connection, but Neptune in Pisces is famous for not being where you expect it to be. It shimmers like the sea, with mists and veiling, waves rising and falling. It’s illusive without malice, sometimes lost. It’s just its way of being. So, no matter how well intended, Jupiter may not make its mark and learns to live with what is. Jupiter is religious to an extent, and Virgo likes to serve, so they may need to leave the basket on the doorstep. If Neptune was home, he might invite them to a local meditation.

To complicate things, Aries’ planet Mars is in an almost square Neptune too! Mars is slowing to retrograde April 17 at 8 Sagittarius 54. See Mars Retrograde. Things you may be afraid will happen will be a hair’s breadth from happening. Things you wanted to happen don’t make it even after all that energy you put into it. You almost get swallowed up into the Void and get lost. Your aim will be off and it will be a near miss, or they can’t find you! You might want to run away or just rest. Take time out if you can.  

Jupiter remains in the close square with Saturn, to become exact May 26. We are still breaking up old barriers, long done spent commitments are falling from their own weight. We are letting loose of unspoken rules we never challenged before. Father’s, bosses, find their script uncertain, a sure sign of hope for change. From the tightest darkest corners we find we can prevail against seemingly oppressive odds. Age and experience may prove to be on our side. Old rules get questioned, some even changed. With Jupiter’s confidence we find ourselves leaning forward, wanting to give it a try. A plan is made, even though we may be only cautiously optimistic. In time there will be some quite satisfactory results. Even if only meager, it is a sustainable beginning!

Hats off and Hallelujah!

Aries Pharrell Williams ~ BE HAPPY!

Happy Rapper, Pharrell Williams, born April 5, 1973, has Venus, Sun, Chiron in Aries and Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius! The brighter the better! Aries rules the head, and hats, and Pharrell knows what to do! He’s only 5′ 9″, so they make him look taller too! :) Red and white are the trademark Aries colors and cars. Though exceptionally youthful looking at 42, he has more than average staying power with his Moon in Taurus.

Numerologically Pharrell’s name has the power of two double Ls – 4 Ls, and dbl Rs! L’s are assigned the #3, cleverness, versatility, intelligence, communications excellence. Rs are given to #9, the most worldly and sophisticated, the most tolerant and the most conscious. Double numbers are thought to be master numbers. In short, Pharrell is a leader of our times.

Pharrell Williams’ net worth is estimated to be from $32M (Forbes) to $155M. He is a successful American rapper, songwriter, singer, fashion designer and records producer. He is also part of the hip-hop producing music duo, The Neptunes alongside Chad Hugo. Per MBW the major contributor to Pharrell’s net worth is his production and music career. A good portion of it comes from his album sales and concert tickets. His shows are always sold out generating him revenues of millions of dollars. His great fashion sense has seen him sign million dollar deals with Louis Vuitton to design jewelry and sunglasses. His entrepreneurial skill has seen him launch profitable ventures such as a children’s website, YouTube channel, shoe Company and a clothing line.

As any good Aries would if they could, he owns a garage full of ostentatious sport cars. Among his collection is a Mercedes-Benz SLR, Ferrari Enzo, McLaren Roadster, Porsche Spyder just to mention a few.

Nominations and awards abound, including 11 Grammy Awards! After all, Aries is Number 1!

Pharrell is an ace at collaboration, both business ventures and philanthropic for many causes. He does concerts to help various causes including the one he did with the gospel choir at the South Carolina church where nine black parishioners were shot and killed. He did the two-hour “Shining a Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America” program. He owns a non-profit educational foundation called “From One Hand To AnOTHER.” The foundation is for youth between the ages of 7 and 20 in at-risk communities throughout the country. Its mission is to “change the world one kid at a time by giving them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential”. FOHTA’s vision is to modernize the community center concept by empowering kids to learn through new technologies, arts, media and motivation. Pharrell is building a $35 million afterschool center in his hometown Virginia Beach.

HAPPY video! BE happy!

Aries 2016 Highlights!

Foursome Moon, Mars and Saturn, and the star Antares March 29 2016!

Use the Moon to find the planets Mars and Saturn, and the star Antares March 29! Mars is the brightest of the three starlike objects, and you’ll have no trouble spotting it. If you don’t already know Antares, whose location within the constellation Scorpius makes it very noticeable, you can distinguish Saturn from Antares by color. Saturn shines steadily with a golden hue, while Antares sparkles more and appears redder in color.

If the bright moon makes it hard to discern color, try looking with binoculars.

Due to Mars retrograding, Mars, Saturn and Antares will make a triangle in our sky for months to come, eventually catching up with Saturn on August 25, 2016.

Aries TimeLine!

The  FOUR in 30 days outer planet combinations are finishing! The last is the Jupiter square Saturn March 23, that holds continuously through May 26!

Finishing aspects

  • Saturn trine Uranus is still within 5 degs of their aspect until April 18, fading but the exact aspects still to come. It’s consideration time, preparation….
  • Jupiter opposition Chiron, inconjunct Uranus is currently fading, to finish in August. This is an important combination because the aspects are reversed in 2017! Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, opposition Uranus! 2016  2017
  • We have just finished Jupiter MEGA trine Pluto March 16 and are still strong in the after effects, integrating our learnings into our lives. The third and final aspect to prepare for, with great interest in our portfolios, is June 26! This is the aspect I have been urging you to do what it takes to maximize its results! If it connects with your chart think what you would like to see happen! Do what you can to make it possible, make connections that count! The very Best to you!

Continuing Aspects

  • Uranus and Pluto continue in a close range square. Though no exact aspect will be formed again, the reminder of happenings since 2010 remain with us, many taking years to work through.
  • Chiron & Uranus continue in their many years long journey closely together in the background…. More

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. At first Aries may feel blocked at every turn, but they are not quitters and enjoy the challenge! Aries dares to interrupt, flashes its Spirit enough to get attention but not get caught. It cleverly sees the weak spot in a house of cards, sometimes gives fair warning, but sooner or later seeds take root and change is inevitable. Soon as it becomes possible, Pluto can lend an experienced Capricorn hand, save time, direct some of the action. The new ideas are fast and furious, some doable, others maybe. The ideas may be grand, but need a little practical and timely how to, and finessing.

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. The Sun’s annual course through Aries lends more Light than Pisces is used to. But, our vision is brightened. We are swept off our feet, but stand a little taller too! Neptune the Dreamer and Visionary passes the baton to Aries the Initiator! Aries loves new things, and is delighted by the challenge, honored to lead. Neptune’s subtle guidance soothes the way, Aries feels unthreatened, independence intact. If Neptune is sleepy slow, Aries just moves right on.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. The Sun in Aries really resonates with that. The Sun will conjunct Uranus at 7:56 AM Pacific just after the 4:24 AM Pacific Aries NEW MOON April 7! The Sun Uranus merger will be felt most keenly, a possible awakening of magnitude. Some will feel tingly and unpredictable. Others will feel raised to a new level and wonder if they have been on a spaceship! There may be a special awareness of supersonic consciousness, glimpses of profound insights that won’t be forgotten. You may never feel more all alone yet one with all, in the same moment. Aries, the sign of the new dawn, that happens everyday, may be less impressed. For them it’s business as usual.

Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aries, the next sign, isn’t always in the mood for marrying, so they take this part of the connection with a grain of salt. But Aries loves new ventures, quick money and flash. Once started, they may leave things to Chiron to maintain. Chiron is the healer, Aries is a first responder savior. They get the client to the hospital and Chiron goes about what can be done. Chiron may need time outs to rest, contemplate, come upon creative cures in the dreamtime. Aries has auto instinct in action, but a few moments may be needed here and there to recharge.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. As it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees, factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof. In Sagittarius it is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Sagittarius is great with Aries. Aries enjoys a good wander, and Aries is already off somewhere else! Saturn in Sag has profound things to share and Aries knows just where to place those seeds so change will come quickly and the seeds will grow well. This may be the most potent traveling you have ever done!

Jupiter in Virgo is inconjunct Aries, askew. Virgo loves its system and Aries was born to toss it to the winds! This combination may need some acceptance of difference. Virgo may do well to let the lesser things pass. Aries can see Virgo cares, and they may both be working for the same cause. Take it easy. Virgo might need some items yesterday. Aries can take care of that! Aries could need some health help and with a few choice words, Virgo can save a lot of time with simple nutritional or herbal cures, and will be there if Aries is twitching with itch to get up outta that bed! Virgo, have your requests ready, make them short and to the point.

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aries, having had plenty of life’s experiences, some dangerous, in short time as it darts from one to the next, has to be impressed, or they have already left the party. What you think is exciting may be nothing to them! Libra enjoys considering one facet of a matter, then another, then another. Aries has already done what they considered for a fraction of a second. Jupiter may have opinions, but they may be more mild mannered in Libra. However, the big truth may come out, much to Libra’s chagrin. Oops. Aries is passionate and fervent, not willing to have lengthy philosophical discussions. Jupiter is judge and Libra is law. Aries lives its own law. Aries already leaves Libra to its preferences. Libra needs to let Aries be their pure self. Some teaching of manners can work for about 5 minutes. Praise that!

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!See the 2016 Special Edition Newsletter for upcoming Planetary Patterns! Make your changes count.

Aries ~ Fearless and Fine!

Aries Jane Goodall Chimp

Aries rules the head, our brain! We wonder about intelligence, consciousness, our place in the grand scheme of things. Undaunted, Jane went to Africa. Sun Mars conjunct and Uranus in Aries, April 3, 1934 Jane Goodall discovered amazing things that made breakthroughs in our thinking. Chimps had unique and individual personalities. They used tools.They had emotion, intelligence, and family and social relationships. They could understand us. These were enormous changes in our concepts about animals.

Some Ariens are heroic. They rise above circumstances, hardship, persist until they make it. From fry cook, prostitute, nightclub dancer and performer, April 4, 1928 Maya Angelou, civil rights activist, recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning”, at President Bill Clinton’s inauguration, January 1993! In 2008 she  spoke at a rally for Barack Obama. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees. She had come a long way. The profound courage of this woman brings tears to my eyes. She had Sun Jupiter conjunct and Uranus in Aries.

In challenging environmental times, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, Mar 31, 1948, stepped up after being Vice President to make the film based on his book An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It. Innovative Aries leaders often appear when they are needed. Besides being an Aries, Al Gore has a powerful Pluto Saturn Mars conjunction. 100% responsible and timely.

All these very different people faced the demons of common thought, life threatening situations. You can easily see that it may be true that some Aries are starters not finishers, but some are fighters to their dying breath, living profound lives. Those lives may not always be easy or comfortable. They take criticism and make some mistakes of their own, human like us all. I hope you forgive more than judge, help rather than hinder. Find a way to bless and support the good works that may be a bit beyond our mind of the moment. If you can’t lead yet, be a darn good supporter and follower.

Sentience is a living thing, steadily changing right along with every other facet of evolution every single minute. That is especially true these days with Uranus in Aries! Uranus has to do with Freedom, the freedom to spark the light of the Fire of Aries. Uranus rules flight, getting above, a more comprehensive point of view that changes as you fly! Uranus is awakening, enlightenment. Sentience is a truly keen alert perception, becoming conscious in a new way, more alive – maybe alive for the first time! Understanding, appreciation are part of the process. Entire communities worldwide are changing consciousness.

Lady Gaga, Leonardo da Vinci, Yelena Kondakova, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Cesar Chavez, Ravi Shankar are a few of the many phenomenal Ariens that have and will keep changing the world. Step up to your spot. BE.

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians!

Aquarius David Bowie Gentleman

He will be missed. Jan 8, 1947 David Bowie was not your average Capricorn. Born at 9 AM (from him) Brixton, London, UK, he had a Leo Moon and Aquarius Ascendent. Ziggy Stardust was a natural aka name for him! The symbol for Aquarius is Ziggy, and Aquarius rules the Heavens, Stardust!

He lived up to his Ascendent. Aquarians are #1 as singers; he had a rare voice and used it uniquely. Per Wiki, in a 2014 analysis of 77 “top” artists’ vocal ranges, Bowie was 8th, just behind Christina Aguilera and just ahead of Paul McCartney. Aquarians live for enlivening, awakening, change, blazing trails into the formidable great Unknown! Aquarius is the last Air sign, rising above the general congregation of Souls. Air sign communicators are intelligent, quick on their feet, even brilliant! Aquarians research, then add their own notes, speculate on possibilities well beyond their time. At the very least it is entertaining, and often they are intuitively right – gifted with clairsentience!

Sun in Capricorn in the 12th House, Bowie was a talented composer Musician, often worked at Night. He has been referred to as a chameleon, I prefer to call him a Magician. His career was ‘marked by reinvention, musical innovation and visual presentation.’ The 12th has to do with being visionary as well as our vision. An early injury left him with different color eyes with different size pupils. I interpret that to mean different ways of seeing the same thing at the same time, seeing differently than the average ways of seeing. This added to his unique Aquarian appearance.

With Moon, Saturn and Pluto, together in Leo, he was a superb performer, actor! With full heart he brought us the colors of the living brilliance of Aquarius! Sometimes the 7th house appears effeminate, beautiful. Coupled with his eccentric Aquarian freedom of expression, his sexuality was questioned, yet he met his match with his Somali-American model wife Iman! Capricorn’s, Saturn in the 7th house, are noted for long term commitments. They were married and survived scandals for 24 years! Iman’s birth time is not known, but they seemed well matched! Her chart

Mars with his Sun could be ferocious at times, exactly as Spirit intended. Mars is what’s new, so he often tried new things. For example, he was a fluent player of the keyboard, harmonica, saxophone, stylophone, viola, cello, koto, thumb piano, drums, and percussion. Though from many beginning failures, he made his ground! He became, IS still, a leader.

Typical Aquarian philanthropist, Bowie headlined global concert tours in support of many causes: Abuse, at Risk/Disadvantaged Youth, Children, Disaster Relief Education, Family/Parent, Support, Health, Human Rights, Hunger, Poverty, Weapons Reduction, Women. It is said Bowie and wife Iman remained up-to-date, endorsing as many foundations as they possibly could to improve the world.

An unforgettable 69 years. Powerful aspects took him on the next lap of his journey. Pluto, both Death and Resurrection, was at his Mars/Sun; Uranus was square them. Lazarus is truly a fitting name for his final muiscal! The world was shocked at the news of his passing. His passing was unique in that he made his final album and video, clearly about death, while he was secretly dying of Cancer. They were released on his birthday. He ‘spoke’ of death, gave his messages, said his farewells to all, a ‘parting gift’ to the world. On his Birthday he was on his feet, dressed to the Nines in a suit by New York designer Thom Browne, with a huge à la Bowie smile on his face, having his last photographs taken. He left us two days after his birthday, the day after a New Moon.

RIP David Bowie. Gentleman, creator, ferocious, courageous, the Ultimate!

See his chart! I speculate he was born at 8:53 AM, putting Venus in the 10th, 0 Aquarius ASC.

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aquarius! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Aquarius is just a step away in the next sign. It is up to Capricorn to create a lasting foundation, platform, to support the risks that futurist Aquarians take for us. Cappies need to be sure there are windows for opportunity, there is freedom for invention, change is embraced for the upgrading of existing systems. It is up to Aquarius to request this support in a friendly manor, respectfully inviting Capricorn to share in the amazing benefits. Not only must Aquarians have their ideas, but use their genius to also collaborate to secure ways for them to be implemented! As part of our community, professional associations, worldwide networks, together, results can be phenomenal!

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in a water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Aquarius, is the sign behind, an air sign. Though a fixed sign, the air mass that surrounds our planet, and the heavens above that will always be there, electric Aquarius is considered to be unpredictable, its element Uranium unstable, sometimes explosive and shocking! Neptune and Pisces are considered mutable, moveable, also unpredictable, but not so obviously. Both subtle and sudden radical change are possible in the same moment. If you don’t like it you might call it insidious. If you were hoping and waiting, you would be cheering! Either way, there may be delicate moments, some better left alone, others long awaited turning points of compassion and understanding, insight and enlightenment!!!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius and Aries is a sextile sign! Air feeds fire, and both love change NOW! Aries is one to one, often grassroots campaigns with an underdog champion! Aquarius takes the whole tribe, or gathers all the champions, makes an organization, declares a class action suit! Aquarians are looking for sweeping cultural change! With the pioneering high spirit of Aries and the brilliance of innovative Aquarius, there is inspiration in every moment! Media, Internet, education are a tremendous gateway. Young leaders are making a lasting difference!

Chiron is also in Pisces, soon to be in the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aquarius is redefining our relationships with each other – ie gay marriage rights, our concepts of spirituality, friendships are different with social media, we are truly becoming world citizens. Financial systems are more and more affected by world conditions. It becomes more important to help each other as what happens anywhere affects us all. Political and religious differences wreak havoc, yet many maintain a compassionate stance, accommodating as much as possible, supporting refugees from life threatening conditions. Given time, there will be more union though it is also the function of Evolution to have differences that enliven the process, shake us free from old ways.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016 as it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, each three times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet now, but was the old time ruler of Aquarius. Aquarius is still considered to be a cool sign, even uncaring when less personal, busy taking on the giant concepts of the Planet, steeped in its research and invention. Best to be on the same page with your mate, work together, have common goals! Saturn makes commitment to a visible purpose in Sagittarius, wants tangible results. Another fire and air combination. The Spirit of Sagittarius seeks a benevolent and most progressive outcome. It is thrilled to join Aquarius in taking it as far as they can go! It goes further yet since Saturn in Sag wants to be able to teach the process, spread the good word far and wide! Aquarius may have moved on to another venture, but the seeds it leaves behind are alive and well.

Jupiter in Virgo is quite ok with Aquarius inventing right and left, improving working conditions, implementing electronic efficiency systems, saving lives at the nursing station, offering inspiring planting information, sitting in on genius brainstorming! What is frustrating is that Aquarian independability when they are not on time or don’t show up, forgot, sorry, or their friends hang out and nothing, absolutely nothing, gets done. Aquarians know they can trust their Virgo friends to get the job done, but are generally not so enthralled with nattering over the teensiest details. It worked? Of course it worked! Great, next! Earthy Virgo can do the daily biz like a champ. Airy Aquarians were born to move about, follow fresh scent on the wind. They are easily bored and like new people, the more different the better, a challenge!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is SO social and so is Aquarius! Libra is more proper; Aquarius doesn’t care as long as you have something interesting to share! Jupiter wants to learn, and Aquarians have astonishing points of view, sometimes tumbling Jupiter from their opinions. Jupiter likes a good jaunt into the Future, and Aquarius was already there! Libra likes to keep a balance. If you look far enough, you will see that Aquarius, shocking at times, mightily disturbing the status quo, is actually on a trajectory designed to get you there. They don’t always know that themselves, but they really are on course, a kind of balance of their own. Libra can buffer the radical shifts. Aquarius keeps Libra from being complacent and staying too long in the peacekeeping mode. Divine excitement makes Librans dance on their beautiful toes, help forge a political and legal Path the changes need so they can happen! Aquarius, looking back, laughs with delight, at the edge of the next encounter!

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Aquarius ~ Like None Other! 

Aquarius Woman Under Heaven Air Sign

There are a lot of Ex words, and many, meaning utterly and thoroughly, apply to Aquarius!

Exciting, exhibitionist. No rules apply to your Aquarian. They are spiritually genetically different under Heaven. You can never really know them because they change as you look at them. They are always becoming. It’s not a plan, it just happens and you happen to be there too. Without realizing, you change when they do, because you saw it! They prove we can all change with every breath! You may love them a few minutes, be a little scared sometimes. Who was that you married?! Really?! And you are never bored. As they skitter about, sometimes you connect, others you don’t. But there is freedom for both of you in the between spaces! Rest, time to think, feels good. They are lot to absorb, accept, in one neverending package. Fascinating.

Excellent, exemplary, exalted. That amazing brain and their wild card capability takes them to the highest places ~ research, invention, out of the box! They don’t hold back when someone tells them it isn’t regular, but are exultant in their pursuits because it’s not! Rebellion has its merits! When they are supposed to be at their award party, they forget to go because they are working on the next project, fully immersed, divining the details from the ethers.

Extraordinary, exceptional, exotic. Unique has meaning from weird to marvelous beyond words! The range of difference is extreme! There are otherwise non functional savants, to beings with so many skills it would take the rest of us several lifetimes to achieve them! Sometimes they look so different you would never miss them duck walking down the street in neon colors! Others are so ordinary appearing they are completely camouflaged among us. Being shocking is one of their favorite venues. Never underestimate your fellow.

Exchange, exclude. The learning curve when you are with an Aquarian is just about straight up! All aboard! You keep up or are left behind. Get what you can, thank your lucky stars for even a brief encounter. If you keep up, keep your eyes open wide and catch every molecule flying your way! Stardust is their element! They don’t really ever mean to be exclusive. It’s just that their ON button is ON! Air is their astrological medium, and they are the third, final, of the air signs, and they know how to breath in and let the air go right through them. They pick up all the nuances on the huge tide of Being, pull them together in a prescient framework of ideas. They have huge capacity, we call it intelligence, but it is even more than that mechanical function. They perceive what it means through the generations, where it is going.

Extrasensory, Exponential. The psychic skill of their sign is called Clairsentience, clear knowing. As an Air sign, generally, there is a quality of detachment. In Aquarius they think without so much personal need. There is less judgement, concern for what other people think. They enjoy the facts, free of politics, wealth, laws of science. A new order is possible, probable since Evolution never quits. The more they change, the more change can happen as each facet creates an avenue to another!

Extraterrestrial! Being above and beyond, are perhaps the greatest beauty of Aquarius. Escape from the ordinary, Aquarians are leaders into the Unknown into a Future of uncharted dimensions. Flight has always fascinated us. Dreams of flying tantalize us to find our own wings, move our lives to a new level. Nothing like a great view!

If they were coffee, they would be the expressos of the known Universe! They exceed common standards with exuberance! We thank you, Dear Aquarian Friends, for taking us to the far, far places!

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Wikipedia Founder  Jimmy Wales

Would you give money to this man?
x
Wikipedia co-founder, internet hero, Jimmy Wales is my 2015 Leo choice! Rather than a hunk, he’s a nerd of the first order! He is a teacher of the first degree! He taught at universities, but now is giving access to information on just about anything to anyone who cares to look. Wikipedia is the world’s largest Encyclopædia! As of February 2014, it had 18 billion page views and nearly 500 million unique visitors each month. His creation is a phenomenon.

Jimmy was born August 7, 1966, one of the years of the Virgo Uranus/Pluto conjunction. Uranus rules the internet and Pluto is extremes and wealth! Jimmy has funded non-profit Wikipedia through donations since its launch Jan 15, 2001. Uranus is the planet of Freedom and Universal sharing, world community. Wiki is a free-access, free-content Internet encyclopedia, ranking among the ten most popular websites.

Jimmy Wales has charm, luck and fame with the Jupiter/Venus conjunction in Cancer, the number one sign of business! Very few people could have pulled off such a major non-profit! Jimmy took finance courses at university, and he is the spokesman for Wikipedia. Yet with all this, his net worth is barely $1 Million. The Jupiter/Venus conjunction is trine Neptune in Scorpio, a planet that is rarely in it for the money.

Mercury is at 0 Leo, much ado about nothing, or a lot about something! Zero is innocence, new beginnings, purity. No reason to think it couldn’t be done. Why not? It would be cool! Mercury is mind, communications, learning skills, reaching out to others. Wiki just keeps right on giving, like Leo! One search leading to another, each article is thoroughly referenced and linked. Though not perfect, a study found that Wikipedia’s level of accuracy approached Encyclopædia
Britannica‍’​s!

The Mind is a busy place. In Kate Day’s 2011 post she says, Wikipedia is written and maintained by volunteers from all over the world, all busily contributing their knowledge, endlessly correcting, updating, improving. In an average month they make more than 11 million edits between them. There are Wikipedia articles in as many as 280 languages. Mercury in Leo is a mental giant, a steward of magnitude.

Here’s Jimmy’s dream: Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That’s what we’re doing.

[His Birth Chart, time unknown. Moon could be in Aries or Taurus.]

Leo 2015 Highlights!


♦ Venus retrogrades July 25 to Sep 6!

Jupiter’s last aspect while in Leo is square Saturn Aug 3.
♦ Lucky JUPITER enters VIRGO Aug 11!

Saturn has been back in Scorpio since June 14 after its Sagittarius preview. It will be in Scorpio for the summer until it goes back into Sag Sep 17 this fall. Right now, it’s back to undercover, loving, growing and healing from deep within.

Be specially mindful what you would like to see happen with the Oct 11 Jupiter Mega Trine Pluto! Start preparing now, put things in place for the most excellent results! This first one starts the sequence for two more, March 16, June 26, 2016. Earth, and the Water signs Cancer and Scorpio, will be the happiest!

Continuously long standing mini aspect! Chiron semi-sextile Uranus since Oct 2008!

Leo, Love Light of the World!

Leo Couple Honeymoon

Romance Specialists! From humble to a world famous rendezvous, a simple flower in your hair to the most splendiferous gown! A little candle, bottle of wine to the cathedral filled with friends and dear admirers celebrating your wonderful occasion together. Leo loves long and passionately, true blue and with reverence. Yes, they do flirt, but ask who they will go home with, and it is you, my love. Dating and wedding services, photography, fine catering, superb florals, party supplies are all good with Leo!

The Roar. If they are not pleased, you know it. Come back later. Sad face, funny or mad face, you can tell. They are full of expressions, some quizzical, some profound. It can also be their voice that goes with it. Plaintive whispers to hot passionate screams, poised to mega thunder, they will have your attention. They may be a fixed sign that holds on, often too long, but they are a forgiving fire sign too. Love wins.

To all creatures…. As giant as Leo is in Spirit, they are still softies inside. Scary five minutes ago, but seeing your hurt or woeful dilemma, they are at your side in an instant being so gentle, fussing about. They are often extra loving with animals, from the tiniest to the most powerful, themselves a champion to be proud of. They speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.

Teachers Kids, students, grad students, there is often a Leo leading the way! Sometimes they are quietly one on one, getting right to the heart of matters. Other times the lecture hall, convention center, is filled to capacity to accommodate the brilliant presentation! It is enchanting, inspiring! The audience is bewitched and literally buzzing! Excitement fills the air and they agree to meet again!

Champion Athletes! Remarkable! From small beginnings the most amazing successes! There are naturals and there are those who are hardworking wonders who spring from nowhere and nothing. Their prowess propels them. Practice is as joyful as the race! Colorful garb and gear celebrate every moment from sunrise to sunset! Never give up! You can do it!

Performers It is not uncommon for Leos to be shy in the beginning. They may take speaker training from voice modulation to practice like ToastMasters to get over the ‘uh’s and ‘um’s. But many are natural performers born to the stage, spirited and soul touching. From young to old, their Light fills the stadium, the arena, the theatre. They are the kings and queens of dramatic entrance! You can’t take your eyes off them! Costumes are their second skin, makeup makes the mood, spot lighting was meant for them!

Creators One way or another they make remarkable brilliant things! JK Rowling created an entire fantasy world, as did Beatrix Potter with her children’s tales. Jacob Collier is described as ‘the amazing and revolutionary young composer/arranger/vocal jazzer/multi-instrumentalist/YouTube sensation!’ As you might guess, Leo the King has no lack of famous Leo directors, DeMille, Kubrick, Polanski, Christopher Nolan, to name a few. It’s as if directors are the ultimate creators, creating people! The golden Leo stamp is the midas touch!

Great Heart Heroes  Robert Redford, founder of Sundance Film Festival, is a philanthropist who supports environmentalism, Native American rights, LGBT rights, and the arts. Courageous heroine Amelia Earhart, was an American aviation pioneer and women’s rights advocate. There are so many everyday heroes all over the world giving everything they have to help others. In my search I found many whose birthdays were not available, some didn’t know what year they were born, let alone their birthday. I would like to honor them here and now and always.

In gratitude to Leo, the Shining Heart.
