Spring Equinox Full Worm SuperMoon!

Wednesday March 20 at 6:43 PM Pacific, 0 Libra/Aries 09

1st of 2, Blue Moon to come! 0°, Mercury still Retrograde conjunct Neptune!

Aries 2019 First Full Moon Spring Equinox Ukraine

Beautiful Spring in the Ukraine Mountain ranges

Per Earthsky, this year, the March 2019, full SuperMoon, last of the three 2019 SuperMoons, comes less than 4 hours after the arrival of the March 20th equinox, making this the closest coincidence of the March equinox and full moon since March 20, 2000! Next time will be 11 years from now, in 2030. 

This will be the first of two Full Moons spanning Libra/Aries! This one is at the first degree, 0 Libra/Aries 09. The second is an AstroLogical ‘Blue Moon,’ the only 2019 Blue Moon! The April 20 Full Moon will be at the last degree, 29 Libra/Aries 07! This March Moon is a true Alpha time! We are at the first day of Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, the first day of Spring! Since it spans Aries/Libra, we might say it is Alpha-Omega, the beginning and ‘end,’ since Aries is sunrise and Libra is sunset! Each of these Full Moons greets one of the two outer planets that have just changed signs! The first charges Chiron, the second charges Uranus!

This is the 5th and last Full Moon at 0 degrees! They were in Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, now Aries! Each has been a full arms open embrace to their sign! Sag started the Journey, Capricorn made it so, Aquarius shook the basket, Pisces sweetened the Dream! The last of the five is in Aries at Spring Equinox, new beginnings par excellence!

The Full Moon at Zero degree emphasizes the two recent sign changes! Sun is conjunct Chiron, now at 1° and semisextile Uranus at 0°! This is Sun’s first conjunction with Chiron in his new permanent sign! Sun is welcoming him into Aries and giving him a first day of Spring super solar charge! Sun is a fiery ‘planet,’ so with Chiron now in fiery Aries, they are more easy with each other. This charge will be transferred to Uranus as well because Chiron and Uranus have been traveling side by side the last 10 years and have formed a bond. It’s as if they are traveling as one. Uranus has been in Aries the last 7 years, so receives Sun’s energy quite comfortably. In fact, can’t hurt a bit, he’s quite calmer in Taurus, not used to it, so probably needs a little familiar boost. Sun also picks up some quickie healing tips from Chiron. Chiron’s info is hot off the griddle, fresh, untainted, innovative, yet to be tested. It’s true it’s been 51 years since he was in Aries before and times have changed, but he has been watching from the signs he’s been in along the way and things have developed apace. See more about Chiron into Aries! See more about Uranus into Taurus 

Moon is all by herself all the way on the other side of the chart in Libra! This chart pattern is called a Bucket. She is the ‘handle’ of the Bucket. You could say she’s out scouting for the best relationship connections, alliances, possible, paving the way, assessing cultural formalities to be respected. Or she’s the receiver, radar for what’s coming from that direction, canary in the goldmine. You could say she’s the lead of the whole group, or the tail of the dragon cleaning up any messes that need neutralizing, making deals to secure their gains, making the space behind safe. One way or the other, or all of the above, she’s vital to the operation. Balance is key. Aries is less concerned, if at all, but Libra’s talent is to sense the nuances and keep us all quickly informed. She’s scanning the furthest reaches currently possible. 

Moon is off center from Uranus, but in Libra she always knows when there is a change in the valence. She tends to be culturally correct, prefers calm mediation. Uranus is always a changemaker, and she can tell. He has a certain charge that never sleeps. In Taurus he can make change so gently and calmly you don’t even know it happened. She knows that too. If it isn’t for the greater good, she may warn about it, but it may be hard to make anyone believe her. Naw, that can’t be true, never. Yet he’s in progress. If it’s a change she likes, a good glass of wine from the cellar will be in order. 

Mars is off center from Jupiter. They can get in a lot of trouble! Mars in Taurus can prod Jupiter who lives for dares and loves to play. Mars in Taurus can lag and drag and drive Sag crazy! Sag wants to play and who ever heard of Mars wanting to just lay about?! But in Taurus he can. No matter how cunning and persuasive Sag can be with is big stories and splendid opinions, it has little effect. Mars will leave Jupiter behind in two or three days and the cat and mouse play is over. Oh well. There are few times Jupiter fails to impress so he may be disappointed. Mars didn’t get his way either. He may have seemed too common, or unwilling to take a chance. C’est la vie. Maybe in a couple years….

What Mars did get done was trine Saturn then Pluto. Some great work was done. The price was right and it was timely. Could have involved construction or real estate, stone work, restoration. Some of the people in charge were quite impressed and more connections made. Follow up from time to time. Hire that person for more work!

Venus however, squares him and is probably a little grumpy with him or ignores him. He’s not her type. She’s exotic in Aquarius; he’s common in Taurus. They have way different kinds of intelligence. She won’t pay him what he’s worth, or can’t, at least not now. Wait for a bit, maybe sometime after Mercury goes direct/forward. She in Aquarius may simply be gone to other realms. But if she’s working on a community project and it’s one Mars favors, they could work together after all. She’s likely to get a publishing or travel grant soon. Could be a scholarship and she leaves the area. Stay in touch, but don’t expect miracles. Be ready to let go gracefully if need. 

Mercury in Pisces is stilllllll Retrograde until March 28. The day before the Feb 19 Full Snow SuperMoon, was Mercury’s first conjunction with Neptune. Now he is slowly moving to make his Rx conjunction with Neptune March 24, just before Mercury goes into his 8 day station (stand still). Neptune is the old man of the Sea, the Pisces planet, also IN Pisces! That’s a whole lot of intuition, dreamtime insights. Words may seem almost ridiculous at times and can mean so less than the feelings. But to put the mysteries of the Universe into words is a sweet feat! There are times the masters of words can make you feel you are right there, present in what they are writing about and you forget you are listening or reading. You ‘wake’ up and to your surprise you are right where you are! 

Mercury goes direct (forward) on March 28. He makes the third/final conjunction with Neptune April 2 Pacific time, just before the April 5 New Moon! Mercury is so curious about the ‘unseen.’ Mercury himself is quite logical, visual, so Pisces and Neptune are like an immersion experience for him. He uses his senses more. He wants to put it into words in some way so others can see it too! He talks with Neptune and watches for reactions, nuances. Neptune’s visions are important, should not to be lost in the dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception. See more about the Retrograde!

Mercury is retrograding away from his second sextile with Saturn, and Saturn has moved past his sextile with Neptune for now, to return mid-June. Saturn is presently holding close to Pluto, but retrogrades himself and doesn’t make the conjunction with Pluto until Jan 12, 2020. That and Mercury 
now at 18 Pisces, and Venus, Mars and Jupiter all at 23 degrees, brings us to discuss the important set of upcoming aspects. Mercury ties in with the Pluto chain of events. Our thinking now has relevance. Pay attention to shifts in your awareness. It’s not even so important what you think, but how you think. Venus, Mars and Jupiter are tied to the early 2020 Saturn/Pluto chain of events. Record and work your goals. Find out how to get where you want to go. There are tremendous possibilities!


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

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

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

Be strong and steady as she goes!

Aries New Moon!

Friday April 5 at 1:50 AM Pacific, 15 Aries 17  

7th Mid Sign New Moon, Bowl Chart, My Stars! Pisces Mercury Direct! 

Aries New Moon 2019 Milky Way Bluebonnets Jason Weingart

Magical Milky Way over Bluebonnets! Photographer Jason Weingart calls this magnificent image ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas!’ Order at his site! 

Just a little fire in the belly! No matter that you can’t see them or they are barely a crescent peeping into or out of the New Moon spot, Sun and Moon are having a sweet rendezvous out there in the heavens! Sun is supercharging, and Aries, a hot fire sign, is all in favor! Moon is sizzling all that great Spirit food on the front burner and is raring to go! The babies are rocking in the cradle, the little kids are wild and the teens are more independent than usual! Lovers are happy dancing. Lambs are springtime frolicing!  

Mercury is no longer retrograde nor in station (standing still), and is finishing his three part cycle April 16, only a few days now to put the final touches in place. He made the last magical conjunction with Neptune in Pisces on the 2nd, just before this Aries New Moon. Endings, completions and dreams are on our minds, New Moon making glorious new flowers! Mercury’s three last aspects show in this chart. On the 7th Mercury sextiles Saturn, finishing up some key tasks, your work is paying off, sign the contracts. The 10th Mercury sextiles Pluto, the finances and certain relationships have worthy potentials. Mercury is closing in on his square to Jupiter the 11th. It may not all be true or possible right now. Could be exaggerated gossip or slander, but still, we are called to seek the next adventure! See more about the Pisces Mercury Retrograde!

The New Moon is the last of the 15° New Moons that started in October with Libra, seven in a row! 15° is the mid of any sign, the turning point! In the Hindi Dwadasama system, 15 to 17.5° are the degrees holding a sub influence of the opposite sign, in this case Libra! All three of this year’s Aries lunar events have this Aries/Libra crossover! Aries is independent; Libra is cooperative. Aries is self; Libra is others. They are both fighters. Aries is physical, will use fists if necessary; Libra is wits and courtrooms, negotiators and mediators, peacemakers if possible. Aries shows Libra that being nice doesn’t always get the job done. Stand up and be counted, for Pete’s sake! Libra shows that leaving, abandoning or offending with bristly shouted opinions doesn’t always work either. We seek to come to know each other. You don’t corner your Aries, or smother them with sweets. Yuk. Aries often only really needs to ask. A please doesn’t hurt. Nor do you yell at someone trying to help you. Put your listening ears on. Sharing can touch your heart.

But. A champion is a champion! Someone needs to stand up, even if it begins with only one person! It’s time to offend someone, to make them look, and listen even if they disagree or especially if they disagree! Just because the sleeping masses have a big opinion, the power of numbers doesn’t make them right. New beginnings must start from a seed and be tended to flourish. Show people that they can run, they can get up that hill. Sun figures that’s a no brainer. Moon might need a little convincing, she likes her apple pie, breads, cheesecake. But if it’s women or children’s rights, she’s on it! Together they will get people excited. Just a few words well placed can make a huge difference. Seeds need the right soil and she’s a clever nurturer.

Now, there’s going to be a little bridge to cross, wall to climb. Sun and Moon square Saturn then Pluto. They will be tested. Sun squares Saturn the 10th, Pluto on the 13th. What is too heavy to carry will be left behind. Get your support team experts in place as you address formidable blockages. Could be rocks, could be toxic. There could be injustice, abuse of power, deep grief. Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn. Protect your property from damage or theft. Don’t be in denial about your career, others on the job. Keep reasonable records of events and achievements in case you need them later. In this period, work with emails, signed papers, rather than handshakes. In spite of what difficulties there may be, remember that Saturn wants to make things right in the long term; Pluto wants to heal. Certain things may just take time. Don’t confront in such a way that they react by digging in their heels just to protect themselves and don’t even hear you. Keep it on an even keel so everyone continues to listen. It will be easier on our nerves and take a lot less time. Change consequences to successes.

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27/28 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is restored. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him.

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone!

Mars, the Aries planet, has just further activated Chiron and Uranus in their new signs! Mars is the planet of new! Being in Gemini now, it’s time to tell the stories, make connections! Chiron is excited to be the new champion of healing and teaching the ways to do it! Uranus will be making a difference in Earth affairs. There will be more awareness of climate changes, environmental remedies. Individuals will take on a one world approach. Some governments may cause delays, but others and many powerful private parties will opt for more long term footage. Mars gets the Word out, is the herald of a new dawn of creation! 

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This feisty Aries New Moon makes a challenging square with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Next month’s Taurus New Moon will be at 14 Taurus making a sextile, so it won’t be entirely over yet. Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Aries doesn’t let sleeping dogs lie. If there are any misuses of power Aries will be around to call Goliath out. If they have gotten complacent, he’ll give the bed a good kick as he walks by. Wake up! Rise and shine!

Moon and Sun are square Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn. Next month’s New Moon at 14 Taurus will trine Vega. Much smoother. Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. Aries has no time for standing still for harp players. To them music is the sound of a well tuned engine, or a rousing concert! Remember that when you are sending invitations or making the wedding plans, LOL! This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.   

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! The New Moon is more happily sextile Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for him. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and the Sun, Robson says: Bold, courageous, insolent, unruly temper, hasty actions, bloodshed, many enemies, great good fortune, military success. Shall we run or stay? Elsbeth Ebertin noted a connection of Rigel to the Sun and Moon, in charts of several world record pilots, leading to sudden difficulties in the carrying out of planned enterprises resulting in failures to reach the set target. Sextiles offer opportunities. Aries is adept at quickly picking up the pieces in an emergency. He can astonishingly turn the tables between life and death. Maybe he’ll save the King!

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

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

At this New Moon Mercury, no longer retrograde, again stands at 18 degrees Pisces! It is sextile the Ecliptic point, conjunct the mid-June Neptune point, trine the Transit of Mercury point! All these are excellent connections! Mercury is spreading the word. If you made Oct 2018 notes, review them, or check your appt book to see what was important then. Compare that with what you have gotten done since then and revise your goals accordingly. Expand your plans as you anticipate the possibilities!

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

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

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini. This Bowl has especially strong focus in two of its signs, three planets in Pisces and three in Aries, the last and first signs of the zodiac! Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Release what no longer serves. Prioritize keepers into place for easy access for Aries that they may be acted on right now! Let Aries ram them forward in divine perfection! 

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

AstroLogical Blue Moon! 2nd in Libra/Aries! Full Pink Moon! 

Friday April 19 Full Pink Moon at 4:12 AM Pacific, 29 Libra/Aries 07! 

Beauty in Blue ~ Sweet in Pink, Fixed Royal Star Regulus the King!

Aries 2019 2nd Full Moon Rose French artist Cebarre

Sweet ‘Rose’ by prolific French artist Cebarre 

BLUE MOONS! A seasonal blue moon is when there are 4 Full Moons in a season. The third of those is called a Blue Moon. There can be two Full or New Moons in a month and the second is called a Blue Moon. This is the second one of two Full Moons in the same SIGN, an AstroLogical ‘Blue Moon,’ the only 2019 Blue Moon! This is the second of two Full Moons spanning Libra/Aries! The first one was March 20, at the first degree, 0 Libra/Aries 09. The April 20 Full Moon will be at the last degree, 29 Libra/Aries 07! Last chance, make it good!

These emphasize the beginning and ending of their Signs. Take notes at the beginning, layout your goals, a few days before the 19th schedule to see how you have done, take care of anything that still needs doing! These Moons in the same signs emphasize their principles – Libra/Aries. Aries is independent, calls his own shots. Libra reminds we aren’t here alone, but are impinged on by others and we upon them. Sometimes we are not helpful to each other, and that’s ok. We seek harmony if agreement isn’t possible. Other times collaboration enhances our quality of life and we are grateful. Many times the whole is greater than the sum of its parts! 

Sun and Moon have just a little more emphasis this time because they are trine and sextile the fixed star Regulus the King! Regulus was considered to be the leader of the Four Royal Stars of the ancient Persian monarchy, the Four Guardians of Heaven. It is associated with Raphael, the Healing Archangel, Watcher of the North. As of 2012 it changed signs from fiery Leo to earthy Virgo. We have shifted from Father Sun’s sign to the healing Mother Goddess. Regulus still stands at the Lion’s Heart, but in Virgo (sign of nurses, midwifery) it is now more tending as a peer than dominating. Leo the Lion’s story though, has always included magnificent Light Giving and a generous Heart. Even in Virgo, it is still at the Lion’s Heart. Egyptians knew Virgo as Isis, the Goddess of Fertility. Pagans called her the Virgin – Ceres, Demeter, Persephone, that Catholicism translated to the Virgin Mary. Aries fire and Libra air are geometrically in harmony with this now Earth Star. She has respectable skills that keep them well and smooth their daily affairs. She is the technician to their interactions.

Sun and Moon have just passed Venus at 28 Pisces. They are reminded to let Soul quality Love be their guide. She’s the one that makes the difference with her understanding, compassion. She adds grace and flow. The charge in a courtroom case is a little less intense; there is a little less to prove, it’s easier to listen without feeling you have lost power. She’s more gentile and even a small smile changes the tone. Aries’ colors are red and white, pink. Libra is pastels art and lovely florals. Venus is Libra’s planet. The powerful independent Aries leader and the gentile mediators, Libra/Venus, master the forces to bring Peace. The ultimate Peace Rose. 

Sun and Moon have also recently come from a trine and sextile with Jupiter. Jupiter laughed with them, brought them big news from far places, brought them hope and perspective, taught them a lot to be proud of. Sun in Aries felt like he could win the race and Mama Moon was delighted to make a new friend, try out some foreign recipes, to learn and live big!  This time they left him before he moved on. They are willing to gamble on the new plans. They are both clever, even more so at the last degree of their signs, so undoubtedly will successfully enhance what Jupiter had to offer and inspired them to do. Tomorrow they will be leading the way in new signs! The big wheel keeps on turnin’!

At the 0° Libra/Aries Full Moon, Sun greeted and charged up Chiron newly in Aries. This mature 29° Full Moon, Sun is on the brink of joining Uranus newly in Taurus! If Jupiter’s ideas were big, they were but a small preparation to the planetary wide ideas Uranus will enlighten Sun with! And brilliant Sun will be like the fuel in the Rocket! Uranus makes things come alive, electrifies the synapses! The ideas in Aries will be anchored and maintained, amplified and further enhanced in their new setting. They will be simplified and put to good use community wide. Further research and inventions will spring from their baseline! Mercury, no longer in his retrograde cycle, freshly in the Full Moon sign Aries, will spread the word quickly and feedback will supply more fresh ideas. One to the next it will keep going! Great timing!

Neptune can hear Mars in Gemini chattering and nattering from a long ways off,  coming to make the square. Mars can be pesky or wake up old Neptune, probably both. Neptune is used to being bigger than most anything that comes his way, takes it in stride. But Mars is silly fearless, does a spontaneous third eye zap, and whadda you know, Neptune is all ears! Mars better be quick and alert though, or an inadvertent tsunami may sweep him away! If the day is calm and Neptune is bored, up to hearing the latest, they may have a long exchange. Clever Gemini has a lot to say and Neptune is millennia wise. Mars can quickly piece the meaning of the parts together beyond his wildest imagination only to bring a further rhapsody of exchange. Neptune finds a shift in his essence with this new fuel. Mars Initiations quickly trigger releases that allow surprising advances into the future! This could just go on forever…. Just be a little careful or your fire may get unceremoniously put out.

Again and still, Saturn is with Pluto, only 3 degrees apart now. Saturn will retrograde April 29 and they will gradually fade apart. They are close but don’t make their connection until Jan 12, 2020! That conjunction is part of a long cycle…

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

Neptune is now almost 18° Pisces, will retrograde on Summer Solstice June 21 at 18°! It is precisely tuned in to the Jupiter/Saturn aspects to it at that time, the Ecliptic event of Oct 2018 and Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse Nov 11! Neptune brings sensitivity to and understanding of these major events. It sees the links between them, passing the thread through the eye of the needle of one to the next and beyond. We are magically connected to higher realms.

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

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

Secure the ground gained through these important 2018 to 2020 events!

Libra 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Libras ~ Beauty Be!

Libra 4 Planets Gwyneth Paltrow Beauty Be

Sunset is Libra’s time of day. Mid Fall, Equinox, end of the summer sun, shorter days is Libra’s time of year. Both are endings, success, gatherings of gratitude, sharing. For some it is a time to slow down, sit down to dinner together, do indoor evening chores for a time, rest. Summer zest and plant production slows, steady winter growth of chill loving plants takes their place in the garden. Instead of so much comfortable outdoor play time, many are back at school, back at work, the longer cooler evenings giving more the mood to study, to plan. Herein lies the secret of new beginnings, new vantage points, new skills! Life has the potential of being truly aligned to your Spirit. The rest doesn’t fit. There is a tipping point, considerations of the longer term balance of the seasons, the long term goals of your Being updated every year at this time! Training for deep winter sports commences. The Artist within us witnesses the shifts, different lighting, Mother Earth’s natural progress unfolding.

The three Air signs! Gemini walks the neighborhood. Libra chats them up and partnerships of all kinds are made! Libra makes so many connections, Aquarius can band them together across the world, whether business, internet, or mutual international causes! The intellects of all time are gathered for profit, pleasure, research and rescue! Libra’s contribution is crucial because not all Aquarians, often the most productive ones, are busy perusing the ethers, not interested in people as much as discovery! So it’s up to Libra to cross this gap – culturally, age wise, of faiths, and the races! Libra is exquisitely capable. Lines of inquiry are pursued, consultations are made, surprising mergers spring into being without seeming effort. Remember the Magicians seeking how to turn dross into gold? Libras have always known how to do that. They are old alchemists.

Immortal Beauty is invisible. It’s more a quality than a thing of skill or technique. It has intrinsic value, recognition by all cultures. It crosses the gateways of time, always is thought of as beautiful. Or, it visibly fills our eyes, Spirit, and marks our very Soul. When Libra shows us the mortal side of beauty this way, we remember who we are, our intentions, how we have wandered many lives to get preciously here. We spontaneously slip into a Knowing that needs no words. That sacred experience is often conjured by stories that end in such a way, we know a change happened, a release, an arrival, yet how we got there, where we are, doesn’t matter at all anymore. We are here. Use me, Great Spirit, Angels show me the way. Libra is there as a Guide, supremely aware of nuances, keeping us from falls or slight deviances from our destination. A bouquet of flowers, cleverly placed, perfectly scented (centered), lifts our attention – keeps our focus extended, further and higher.

Beauty is Divine. It is so much more meaningful than we surmise. It’s an unexpected smile that changes our day, even saves our life. It’s the lay of the land, a park in the City whose trees help us breathe and recenter. It’s those sophisticated or rustic clothes that tell the story of who we are and hint at who we are becoming to be, attract the right people as we go along. Beauty is a Verb. It’s how we live our connections with other Souls, each special.

Libra is the special time of Fall Equinox equal day and night. It’s the balance between light and dark. As summer ends, we are aware of our accomplishments and ready to increase our creds with more education. It’s a special balance of standing with our talents, and keeping up with the changes of time. We connect with learned beings who help us stay poised while in motion! Baseball is a Libra sport, a team sport, with super skillful expertise required. Equestrian sports require a relationship with your horse and exceptional in motion balance. Surfing and skiing require an intuitive relationship with ocean and earth, and the balance to stay up while in motion! Gymnastics has its balance beam that you propel yourself across! Yoga is a ton more subtle, but it will challenge your abilities, your relationship with yourself! All these sports will help you in many ways to understand the concepts of relationships and balance. A Libra favorite is dancing, from lines and squares, to rock, to ballroom, to ballet! Grace, beauty and exercise all in one!

Now, for some fun… Sep 27, 1972 Libran Gwyneth Kate Paltrow Martin has 4 planets in Libra – Pluto, Sun, Mercury and Uranus! She is an American actress, businesswoman, socialite, lifestyle guru, singer, and food writer. She is razzed about her quotes, so I thought I would throw in one some of you astrologers will appreciate, LOL! At 29, the year after her Saturn (sometimes pessimistic, not funny) Return, she said to NY Rock, November 2001:

“Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don’t have that many good years left in me.” She’s now 45; they can laugh all they want at her quotes, but depending on where you look, her net worth is 60M, 72M or estimated to be 140M! Whatever….it’s a healthy chunk of change.

Keep the Faith, and keep practicing your Balance, Friends!

Libra 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Libra Astrology Highlights 2018!

“The giant sunsets are a whole other world on the (Bolivian) salt flats. At sunset, with the reflection, you can see two suns moving fast at each other until vanishing into the horizon.” By photographer Eric Paré

Libra 2018 Timeline!

September
22 Happy Libra, Fall Equinox!
24 Full Harvest Moon
25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back into Pisces

October 
5   Venus, Libra’s Planet, Retrogrades
8   New Moon
8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
23  Happy Scorpio!
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!


Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs
 in Libra’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Sep 25 Chiron retrogrades back into Pisces, Nov 6, Uranus back into Aries. Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron enters Aries permanently, Mar 6, Uranus into Taurus permanently.

Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again! Now in Aries, Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and restored.

Retrogrades! Oct 5 to Dec 6, 2018 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! 

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

By November 2019, all SIX of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune, is a peerless appraiser. If he’s behind us, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more! There is an intense 10 day period with multiple aspects that will take all next year to assimilate! We will need those aspects with Neptune to understand and come to working solutions.
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Libra’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Libra 2018 – October 2019!

Libra Dancing Sunset Birds Flying

Dancing the vaults of heaven! Take more chances; dance more dances! Author unknown…

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

Pluto has been square Libra since 2008, finishing Jan 2024. Relationships may have been emphasized. Pluto may want to clear old content, each person taking responsibility for their part. There have likely been cautions about professional interactions and intercultural endorsements, plus pressure to perform as scheduled. Keep personal security protection up to date, don’t let your insurance lapse. If you have doubt about trust, don’t – be safe. Pluto wants the best for you, but having that happen may not always be comfortable or seem feasible. You could go to court. Though you may be Libra nice and try to help, the long term best choice may be to let go. Pluto may BE the problem, intimidating, or helps you get through with the least pain and expenses. Pluto moves slowly, so these matters could take some time, including health challenges.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors betweenn 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Libra are inconjunct, an awareness aspect. Both are artists and love music! Both are sensitive to the nuances of everything around them! Neptune sleeps and dreams, sometimes has addictions and illogical misty visions or totally accurate psychic perception! Libra prefers logic and being clean and sober, but is known to ‘read’ people really well by putting themselves in the other person’s place! Pisces has compassion; Libra has equality. There but for the Grace of God, go I. Libra learns there is more than a butterfly count of connections. Connections have to mean something, have a purpose. Pisces may prefer quiet alone time while Libra’s cure is being social, getting out and about. If that musician or artist needs to make more sales, the Libra agent or gallery owner is perfect for them! Libra’s are great at making contacts, beautiful displays, and subsequent sales!

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

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

Aries is opposite Libra. Libra definitely likes new! The more the merrier! Changes in greetings, mediation skills, upleveling partnering, new sales territory! Libra steps up quickly and follows Aries’ lead. While they are at it, Libra slips in some social phases and ideas for Aries so he will have even greater success! She may be swept off her feet, but she knows whether an idea is going to make it as is or needs adjusting. Together they can make quick changes that work well. Libra may need more rest, so Aries should expect some time outs to go off and do his own thing. He might just make a quick stop with you and is off to meet others. You could be left on your own, especially if he thinks you’ve got it and can carry on without him!

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

Taurus is an Earth sign; Libra is Air. Uranus in Taurus may steadily nibble away around the edges, gradually changing the landscape. It is at once exciting and non threatening. It perseveres. Libra appreciates this more genteel approach though could also wish for the fast pace of courthouse investigations, art appraisals, the broad approach of intercultural studies and international connections, the rush of political frays, fighting for the rights of the people! Uranus in Taurus as the watcher may offer surprising insights about natural shifts, how networks of people can be called together. Works for her! Libra loves gathering the troops for a fair fight!

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

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Libra seeks a balance – not too much of that spiritual stuff, good social time, reasonable money to have some finer things in life, beauty, a little travel, plenty of fresh air! Chiron can offer his intuitive views that shift directions just enough to pull it off! Libra dances well, so quickly and admirably makes award winning changes!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Libra is fascinated by the pace and the sweeping array of possible new connections with teachers and leaders from all over the world! Aries won’t stay long, but it was so worth the encounter! Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Libra is delighted, reordering the sequences, putting people in their new perfect placements!

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

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

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can put the brakes on Air sign Libra, or challenge Libra to stand up and tell it like it is! No more being taken advantage of for being so nice. Saturn censors or gives excellent advice on whom to do business with, how to choose a long lasting personal partnership. Libra may want to be liked, but Saturn wants you to choose because it is a good choice. Saturn is an expert at timing. If he senses this is not the time, wait. Saturn can be pretty serious, so a steady diet of demand for achievement may not be Libra’s cup of tea. Libra needs time to meet people and just breathe with associates after work. Weekend museum trips are great. Saturn needs to know all creatures can not be or want to be just like him. He can use a social emissary for when he’s got a case of the busies, and brilliant Libra knows just how to front for him while he takes time out!

JUPITER moves from 20 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Libra is the sign preceding Scorpio. Libra makes the contacts, negotiates the deals. Jupiter in Scorpio peruses the charts, trends, actual accounts to see just how far they can go. On a journey, he would be Libra’s protector while they explore uncharted locations having unpredictable inhabitants. Yet when it comes to talking, Libra is the one! Jupiter has opinions and Scorpio may not want to reveal all. Could be a bit dicey at times. Jupiter wants Libra’s good cheer, so will try to assess Libra’s ability. If a love of danger and a little fierceness is present, they go there! If not, Jupiter will guide a more gentle expedition. He will encourage Libra to bring any meds, drink safe water, eat safe foods, find comfortable lodging for her. Libra is more refined than Jupiter, or Scorpio, yet sometimes she needs to let her hair down and just relax. It’s a relief just to be yourself as is. Other times Jupiter & Scorpio need to watch their mouths, be a little more thoughtful and respectful. We don’t always realize the effect we have.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter either comes streaking through Libra’s life like a comet, is the owner of the bed and breakfast, or the university prof! Generally they get along, and Libra loves anthropology! She may be inspired to take some journeys on her own! She might be well read, especially on current events, but Jupiter certainly has more ideas about styles of living, the meaning of life, and from his broad experience, you never know what he will say next! Libra’s curiosity will take her on many ventures whether she goes anywhere or not! She’s a lovely hostess and could be the love of the tour guides life! They could own an online travel agency, publish travel tips books! Sagittarius is noted for longevity and Libra tries to keep a balanced life. He has a long stride while she may wait for him at the cafe making new acquaintances, catching the local buzz! What a lovely companion and smart too!

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

All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus!

 


Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

Thursday Oct 5, at 11:40 AM Pacific, 12 Aries/Libra 43!

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

Full Moon Party at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa! Guests will feast on a three-course meal from Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen on the 5th Floor Oceanfront Terrace before celebrating the night away! Fort Lauderdale, FL 

Happy Harvest Moon! This year the Full Moon nearest the Autumnal Equinox is in October. It is also called the Hunter’s Moon, Travel or Dying Moon. It is end of summer, beginning of Fall. Leaves are ‘falling,’ days are shortening, it’s getting cooler. Gardeners harvest; Hunters gather and process game for winter stores. Now that harvest is done, we are free to travel.

This year, in social Libra, it is a time to gather with loved ones outdoors, eat sweet moon cakes, admire the harvest moon, and celebrate the abundance of life. The full moon is a symbol of prosperity, wholeness, and reunion. Family and friends—no matter where they are in the world—can gaze upon and enjoy the same beautiful moon. No matter what happens, you have each other! If you are in a fire or storm area, please take some time to give thanks with new friends. To those of you who are hurting, maybe alone for now, we send our love always. Bless you and keep you and yours.

Mercury and Sun are together this Libran Full Moon. Mercury is being very aware and thoughtful of others. Communications are vital when there are disasters or political shakeups. A cool head and a lot of heart can bring people together in unusual circumstances. In spite of discomforts and fear, this is a huge opportunity. Unlikely champions will rise. Prejudicial limitations will seem senseless. We just help each other because we need help. Lifelong friendships will be made across all lines.

The Moon, always opposite the Sun at Full Moons, is in Aries, the sign of forthright action, first responders, leaders. The Moon is unconditional love and support and independently gathers the food and distributes it as needed. We are all Family. This support gives rise to a grateful independence, more assertiveness, fights for rights of our own and in behalf of others, especially for children.

Sun/Mercury and Moon are directly tied with Neptune! Mercury and Sun are inconjunct, askew Neptune. Mercury is logic, Neptune is not. Neptune the Dreamier is more soulful and psychic, impressionistic. Mercury talks, writes lyrics, while Neptune listens or makes music to the words. Sun in Libra brings people, maybe artists, to meet Neptune, but he may be away in the Ashram or not available until late in the night. Neptune may be brightened by the visit but glad when he has his solitude again. Moon in Aries is hard pressed to slow down for these things. She may push too much and lose the game, or the others may catch on and see it’s important not to miss out or delay important progress by not keeping up!

Oppositions have an across-the-table quality. There you are, right before me. We may be different, but we can shake hands, discuss our mutual goals, divvy up the work between us. We may do it differently, but together we can get there! Sun lights the way, Moon supports and reflects the Light to others! Teamwork!

Cardinal T Square! They are bringing the Light to bear on Pluto, a planet of darkness, a holder of secrets and healing! In Capricorn, Pluto is in the Moon’s opposite sign. There is a resonance since Moon rules Mothers and Capricorn is Fathers! The challenge is to raise Pluto’s sights from old ways that used to work, were necessary then, to fresh options and new alliances. Sometimes the Healer needs rescuing! On the other hand, Moon, Sun and Mercury may need to pass through Pluto’s cleansing gateway before they may go on. There is a test for both sides. Will Pluto see the Light? Will the upstarts clear themselves with the Master? Likely there will be a little temporary consternation and perhaps a little chaos, but the Cardinal signs rarely forego a good challenge! They have natural inborn jump starters!

The Mutable T Square starts with Mars and Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, they in turn square Saturn in Sagittarius! This one is more long term since Saturn takes until Nov 2 to square Chiron. The Venus/Mars conjunction is really fresh! It just happened at 9:53 AM Pacific, just a couple hours before the Harvest Moon! There are details to consider, reorganization that pays off. Distribution is needed. Mars does what it takes. Venus goes ahead of him advertising the values of the opportunity! Though working independently for the time being, Mars could use some partners for his project, cause. Chiron may be asleep over there in Pisces, but senses the shift and stirs. Something has happened and as a healer, he is curious what Virgo has started. He prefers herbs and natural remedies when possible.

Saturn, having been in Sagittarius for a while now, is more amenable to learning about healthy remedies that increase longevity. Not only is it important what we learn, but how we learn it, what we do with it and when. Virgos test their ideas, the quality is there as they promise. They are expert at hands on training. Chiron sees the value of the body/mind connection as well of those with the Soul. Saturn thinks this is a working tenet, so engages, giving what time and support he can, lending his name.

Sep 27 Jupiter opposed Uranus! People have been having huge differences of principles, ethics. Politically balances of social constructs have been undergoing dramatic change. Natural disasters have forced people from their homes, families have separated to survive, or from the result of new laws. Fires, floods, earthquakes. Fear has occurred on so many levels. Change, evolution is inevitable, but recently it has been high chaos and tumult! So much at once. Jupiter is the planet of magnitude, Uranus is the masses. No one escapes! I’ve written how Libra is a sign of recovery of balance. While Jupiter is still in Libra until Oct 10, use its ability for all its worth. See where it currently is traversing your personal astrology chart and work it! Together, consciously and well focused, we can get a lot done. So many are stepping up to the plate, ie our super hero this month! JJ Watt, only 28 years old, has raised over $37M Harvey Relief Funds!

Also yet to come is Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11 – 11-11! They are currently 5 degrees apart, but closing. Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first Nov 2. First is a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

All the outer planets are involved in our Harvest Moon – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! This Full Moon is linked with long term factors. AND, ALL the Full Moon inner planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – activate all the outer planets! They all spur the outer planets on, and are themselves changed by the encounters. Not one planet is in a Fixed sign, holding things steady. It’s not the time for it. The Cardinal planets get things moving; the Mutable planets make the accommodations to facilitate flow! It’s a grand integration, truly FULL!x

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus! 

Thursday October 19, at 12:12 PM Pacific, 26 Libra 35!

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

This thin crescent is post Sunset just after a New Moon.

This is the first lunar event of Jupiter newly in Scorpio as of ten, ten, Oct 10th! The context is wholly different now. It’s been 11/12 years, since Oct 2006, and all the outer planets have changed signs! Saturn has been through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, now in Sagittarius! Scorpio wants it deep and bonded – for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, ’til death do us part. Lifelong. Jupiter wants vital education for a prosperous future for life to be exceptionally blessed. The stakes are high. When it can, Libra offers the connections needed to enhance the opportunity for it to happen.

Libra is the Sunset time of day. It is the Sign of gathering after the day’s work, sharing what the day brought, planning the next day. It’s a time of equanimity, between day and night, equal at Equinox. We welcome a quieter time of day and year. Days will be shorter and it’s cooler. Some time will be spent in contemplation, creating art that tells our story, makes beauty. We will spend more time indoors together. Rather than scattering for evenings outdoors, we gather indoors for dances, theatre, symphonies, art shows. Being social is natural.

A dark night in Libra can be a most potent meeting of Self and Soul. The Moon relates to her people – forbears and children. The Sun relates to his own heart, his courage, his expression of Light. Together they merge the past with creating a powerful union for the future.

At 26 Libra the New Moon is sextile the Galactic Center, opposite Uranus, the planet of the Heavens! And the New Moon is just past the exact inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher.

Saturn, 23 Sagittarius, is now very near the GC at 26 Sagittarius 59! Saturn will be at the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Again, Saturn will trine Uranus, only 3 degrees apart now, exact eleven eleven, Nov 11! This is the third and last time. As before, Dec 24, 2016 and May 18, 2017, Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work. New careers of deeper meaning will be created and forged. See more!

This aspect is important because Uranus is 26 Aries 31, directly opposite the New Moon and trine the Galactic Center! There is no chance things will stay the same! You might be scared or so excited you can hardly contain yourself, both! Evolution is! Aries is the leader, champion. Uranus and Aries can be solo, or they can be a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Libra has more propriety, but is also a sign of leadership, making connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity! Can’t be done without them. Infusion from the great center of the Galaxy will be potently activating many Souls at this New Moon!

All this will be considered under the auspice of Moon and Sun having inconjunted Chiron in Pisces. Healing insightfully, mindfully, with appropriate timing, with no condescension, is sometimes a delicate achievement. Making your patient, client, student a ‘partner’ in their own healing creates a powerful union.

This aspect helps prepare us for the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron the third time. That is generally not an easy aspect. It may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces with a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it! You can. See more!

Mercury just conjuncted Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time in 11/12 years! What an intense consult! There may have been some awkward moments as we get used to this new energy. Mercury is clever with words, but it’s still a new language. Mercury is rarely overwhelmed, but this time he may have reach for it! Jupiter offers as much as you can take, and Scorpio is famous for extremes!

As with Chiron, Scorpio calls for healing. Jupiter heals and updates our purpose. Mercury heals our mind and communications, thinking and learning skills. What you say, how you say it makes a difference. Jupiter wants the whole Truth. Scorpio may protect what must be protected, but also release important revelations. Mercury’s choice is whether to keep the secret and find a way to bring information to help without letting others know their source or the full story. Or, it may be time to do the journaling and exposé, clean up the mess. Could be a little dangerous. Watch out for compulsions and obsessive mind sets. No verbal abuse – none given, none accepted. No being mean or scornful and self righteously thinking it’s ok because you are ‘right.’ Stay clean. Jupiter has a lot of hope, no matter how ‘dark’ the times may seem. Often things you don’t know about are at work in your behalf. Wait for it. Scorpio is the sign of rising from the dead, the Phoenix from its own ashes! That’s a tough combo to beat. Mercury is good at slipping through the cracks out of harm’s way! Stay with it and don’t give up!

That should be doable with Venus in her own sign Libra watching carefully and treading lightly. She is neighborly semisextile to Mercury. Keep the dance moving, adjust your center as you move. Remember that balance is a living medium, rarely equal or symmetrical. Grace may be more the word. Beauty marks the passage. Kindness shows the way.

Upcoming Saturn aspects make this an important New Moon, as well as this Moon being the first Lunar event in Jupiter in Scorpio! Relationships we make, and how we relate, are critical to our success. Jupiter enjoys Libra – studies, travel, fun! Scorpio is Libra’s astrological neighbor leading the way. Libra supports. In old astrology, Saturn was considered to be exalted, in its best placement in Libra. Libra rules Lawyers, Saturn is the Law! Jupiter is judges! Law is not just what is on the books, but what is in our hearts and the laws of how we treat each other. How we judge, looking for the best in others, keeps us all working for a positive future.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi

Happy Birthdays, Aries!

Meet Ricardo Breceda, Sorcerer of Sheet Metal!

Aries-Mars Ricardo Breceda Metal Sculptor Borrego

This story is about an artist born in 1962 in Durango, Mexico, no birthdate available. But I’m sure he is Aries something and/or has a strong Mars, the Aries planet, in his birth chart!

Dubbed “the Picasso of Steel,” Ricardo Breceda was an injured construction worker and a boot salesman, but became a renowned artist in ten short years with no previous art training or even an interest in art!

People are awestruck by the beauty and scale of his work, and the way his animals seem so real, the way he fashions sheet metal into muscle and bone, the way he captures motion. One writer says: Breceda believes in motion. He’s almost always in motion. One of those fast-metabolism guys who need to be moving. He’s been that way his whole life. Breceda believes in the can-do attitude. He refuses to set himself limits.”

His dedication is apparent in this story about him by Gordon Lee Johnson!

It’s 116 degrees under the desert sun, so hot even the Borrego Springs horned toads are hunting shade.

But there’s no shade for metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda who’s welding sheet-metal scales onto a 350-foot sea monster.

White-hot sparks pop and blister from molten metal. So much sweat rolls into his eyes, he can hardly see through the welding helmet’s visor. The sun is hot, the metal is hot, the arc welder is hot, the helmet is hot, his clothes are hot.

It’s July, he’s been sweltering for almost three months on this sea monster. “All I can think is — let’s finish this thing,” he says.

Lost in the fever of work, his working delirium is broken by a young man who is yelling at him to stop, and holding out a bottle of water.

“He actually got in my face, and yelled at me to stop. I didn’t want to stop, I wanted to keep going. But I’m glad I stopped. That guy may have saved my life.”

Breceda knocked off, drank lots of water, and regained himself after a few hours, cooling off to continue.

A couple of days later, he finally finished. “Let me tell you, a beer never tasted so good.”

Ricardo has won prizes, there is much written about him. He says “I work hard to get a piece to look alive, to give it a soul.

You can see this amazing work at Galleta Meadows Estates in Borrego Springs California.

ARIES 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy April 10 2017 Full Moon Jupiter Spica

April 7  Jupiter at Opposition. The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter’s cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.

April 10, 2017, see diagram – presents the first full moon of spring for the Northern Hemisphere and the first full moon of autumn for the Southern Hemisphere. The first full moon of the season shines in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

Jupiter stays in front of the constellation Virgo until November 2017.

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse!

Aries 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, happened the last 8 days of 2016. 

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The next of the set is the March 30 Jupiter square Pluto! See more 

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before. See more

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries 2017-April 2018!

Aries Heady RED Hat!

Aries are heady! They love their hats! Caps & helmets are daily wear! AP Photo by David J. Phillip – great shot!

It’s time to surge into your New Year! May there be many grand new accomplishments!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Aries is FRESH, a sign of the times, even of times to come! Give them the job, they will lead, but get outta their way. They may experiment here and there, taking a bit more time, but the offshoot ideas will be well worth it! Pay attention and capitalize! Aries, be smart and realize the worth of the experience of elders and practiced business men, even if it does remind you of your Father! You may be denied at first, feel blocked, but you can and will do it! If things are too musty, move on and do it on your own, taking the good ideas and sensible guidance with you. You remain independent because it’s your choice to do so!

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! Those of you with chart factors between 12 and 15 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Aries, it will be the surf of a lifetime! it will be your unpredictable but fascinating neighbor you get glimpses of. There will be curiosity, caution and irresistible inspiration! Pisces insights about you may be tailor made, so really listen though at times it sounds like they are speaking in tongues. Their troubles may call you to rescue them. That may go well, but if it goes on and on, you may inadvertently be enabling. Walk away, maybe check in time to time. Plant your seeds where there will be potent results.

Uranus covers 23 to 29 Aries, brings us to the brink of the sign change into Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they are not forgotten. Change worthy ideas need to be highlighted so they are not taken for granted.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! It takes a lot to make an Aries head spin, and this is exactly what’s happening! At last, a friend who is grateful and keeps feeding you the most outrageous data, inventing daily! It’s their turn to keep up, and that’s rare! Sparks fly and everyone marvels! It’s like Love at first sight, and it works! It may not always be easy, each are quite independent and used to having their own way, but the ideas are bigger than they are separately, so get to work and have an uncommonly good time!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 24 Pisces to 0 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation and impresses Aries with its immediate insights, whether in love or business, body or mind! When it goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Aries to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point. Aries is willing to go if it suits his purpose right now. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Aries loves a new cause and believes Saturn to be a good backer, so will go along. Sag can lead and teach. Aries wants more than words, let’s make doing it part of the teaching! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Aries is satisfied, and like Sag, is ready to move on.

29 year Saturn Returns can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that is doable, one step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Aries loves the perfect fresh challenge of new beginnings, especially independent new beginnings! Thresholds were meant to be leapt across! Capricorn may get tired just watching, and they are hard workers themselves. But things get done. Capricorn needs to watch to be sure things are per specs. Aries may get grumpy it there is smothering supervision. Need to talk this out. If Aries is experienced, give them a free hand. The love department may have delays or hit a dry spell for awhile. Give your body plenty of rest, take time out. Cappies make you think you have to prove yourself, and you do, but there are limits too!

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 13 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aries finds that exhilarating, plus meeting new people, seeing new places! Negotiate personal time while Libra is with other friends so they won’t feel lonesome while you gone. Be back when you say you will be or they will worry. They are ever etiquette minded, and you will learn some good skills that bring several excellent opportunities your way! They will broaden your horizons as they survey the entire territory while you may be focused on one facet of it. But your focus may be perfect for getting one thing done at a time while they are contemplating. Social situations may cause you to gain a little weight. Dance it away!

Jupiter in Scorpio is not exactly an Aries comfort zone. The Underground dimension may visit you, requiring a deeper look at you, your intentions. Seductive, lucrative financial offers may need you to sacrifice temporarily. Things are not completely straightforward, yet certain revelations may compel you to take a chance. You have picked yourself up before and done even better than before. You can do it again if necessary. Or maybe you are older now and feeling less willing just because it’s an intriguing challenge. Unlike usual you may find yourself seeking tried and true advice. The timeframe involved is longer than your usual venue. It may be worth it, or the tunnel cramps your style, you just want it to be over, get back to your stand up mode. An oblique alliance may be formed that you use as a wild card in the future. Stay clean.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition or makes it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships – loving or leaving.

Happy Birthdays, Aries! Wishing you a #1 Year!


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

Aries ACTivation!

Aries Sea Serpent Head Ricardo Breceda Metal Borrego

A fire made treasure, that’s our Aries! Ricardo Breceda’s Sea Serpent. This is just the head. The rest of it undulates through the desert sand along behind… Gordon Johnson Photo

If you have never been there before it is INitiation! If you have been there, but inactive, perhaps forgotten, you may need ACTivation! If that’s all going for you, then it may be time for you to be the lead Activator!

Purity is high grade energy, has absolute integrity! Aries rarely calculates or is conniving. They function immediately on auto response, accurately filling the immediate need. It’s a White Diamond Light function. Mind you, they aren’t saints, well, not usually, ’cause they are impatient if you can’t or don’t do the same. It’s no fun if you don’t keep up, LOL!

Red is their other color! They are red-blooded heroes and heroines, love those red trucks, and white cars! Racing in any form, is a passion! To them it is not a gamble, they are just so fast they don’t even think about it. Gets them in trouble sometimes. Other times we are so glad they made it, came to help when they did!

They love the challenge of a catching a good partner. They are adoring fans, roses, new places to go together. But they can leave once the challenge is over. They need a match to their continued high energy, needs to be physical. Biking, hiking, skiing, skating. Speeding somewhere together at the front of the pack suits their Spirits! If you like your sex a bit quick, anywhere anytime, fiery and red hot, you have found your lover!

Being their own boss, having their own hours and business, is perfect for self motivators like them! They may start with nothing and build an empire! A Job that has dramatically different challenges, not routine, works. Aries is innovative, loves being the first to try something new. Meeting new people, possible co investors, delights them. They are terrific sales people. They know what you need before you do! Knives, swords, guns, fighting hold fascination. They have the courage to lead even if it might mean their own death. You will find them at the front working with fire!

Classrooms are a tough assignment. It’s a closed space. Boring to look at, always the same for a time frame as fast as Aries. Assign them to keep it changing. Have different instructors. Blow off the energy on top by riding your bike to work or school! Put in plenty of sports, dance classes before sit down classes. Sitting drives them crazy. Let them stand? Do walking meditations! They will thrive on anything that involves heroes and builds independence. For many the independence of riding their bike makes it their vehicle of choice. Science and mechanics, how things work, especially cars, race cars, will do the trick!

Lean blondes or redheads. Dashing and dazzling demeanor. Fresh. Naive and innocent. Radiant health. They exercise, are generally not readers or TV watchers, don’t sit long enough to eat much. But they can have accidents – cuts, head/eye injuries, road rash, punctures, and headaches and burnouts from too much exercise! They like a clean body machine and aren’t inclined to meds or addictions, unless it’s to or for exercise. Oh, and btw, headgear is primal for Aries! It keeps their mind happy!

Fiery crafts jump start their day! Whether it is creating a mechanical toy for their kids, building a new vehicle, exotic enhancing fuels, making expensive jewelry, glass blowing, cheffing that fine steak or burger, retiring to metal sculpting recycled leavings! It engages their whole being. It’s gotta work, amaze people, and you gotta stay alive while you are doing it! Iron matches their blood and copper is their tone!

Many would disagree with me, but I think of Aries as the Crown Chakra energy center of the body. It’s that White Diamond Light you see on some Chakra diagrams. Their perception of incoming information, connecting with the higher realms, must be clean and clear to quickly save lives when it is an emergency, or to not miss a potent opening, that one moment that could make a difference for the rest of your life! Robin DiPasquale, ND RH (AHG) says ‘The energy of the crown chakra is about opening to the heavens through the crown of the head, connecting with the electrical forces of the universe, and allowing these to flow through the body to join with the magnetic forces of the earth energy in the heart.’

Pink is that blend of White Light and the Red Blood of the Heart of Life. There’s nothing Aries wouldn’t do for you if they could. Most of all, they would like you to be strong. To be able to stand on your own two feet. They want you to try. They will take you places you have never seen before. They ignite your curiosity, show you what’s possible. They scatter seeds with the spark of life wherever they go. They have relentless passion for the Spirit of Life!

Bright White Light, Red Hot Flame, Pink for Pure Love…they love for love itself.

Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune Transmutation Fork in the Road John Jolly
I love this image at John Jolly’s site. Please see his page on Agility….

6.20.17 Note: Happy Cancer and Summer Solstice! Jupiter is now direct, going forward to its concluding third aspect July 4! That day, Venus leaves Taurus, and enters Gemini, the Word. Speak with grace of your insights and adjustments of your Soul. Blessings go with you as you continue to learn and teach. July 8, the Transmutation is still very present, carried forward by the Full Buck/Hay Moon.

6.9.17 Note: Happy Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon everyone! Today Jupiter is midpoint its inconjunct Neptune! It is going direct/forward, to complete its final lap of its 1 degree station that started March 10 and goes through the Full Buck-Hay Moon July 8!

5.20.17 Note: May 17 was the Retrograde aspect. Jupiter is still Rx, goes direct June 9 on the Full Strawberry Moon. In this period from May 17 to July 4, this aspect is in a 1 degree station at 14 Libra. Every New and Full Moon through the July 8 Full Buck Moon will have this aspect strongly. It gives us time to consider, adjust, stretch forward into magical new realms! The process can be IN the Dreamtime, awake and dreaming, eyes wide open and straight ahead!

4.19.17 Note: This 2nd, retrograde aspect happens the day before the 2nd, retrograde Saturn trine Uranus, May 18, the same day Venus finishes her entire retrograde cycle! There most assuredly will be an unusual release of energy in those days! It could be lost, an escape or a leak – one way or another it gets free…

This aspect was the one immediately preceding the Nov 8 Presidential Elections, and initiated a set of SIX aspects late 2016 that were spread throughout 2016, finishing Nov 11, 2017.

Classically, Jupiter in undecided Libra, with Neptune in Pisces, who goes from one who doesn’t care, to one who can see opportunities in all options let alone one or the other, confusion reigns! Jupiter throws new possibilities on the table and Jupiter and Neptune are believers, sometimes optimism and hopeful dreams carry the way, whether the truth is known or not! Or truths are unveiled as Jupiter in Libra keeps turning the tables to see what shakes out! Neptune rides the waves, sometimes  in the trough, other times on the wave tops, but clear with insight from the rise and fall of those vantage points, and goes with eloquent intuition. Together they can give the ultimate perspective. Jupiter travels the planet; Neptune is the Soul Traveler. It’s in your hands.

The first inconjunct was at 9 Libra 27; the second is at 14 Libra 01. Inconjuncts are at either side of oppositions, so they are across the table but off center, nagging at your attention, a bend in the Path. Jupiter usually won’t let them lie, and will seek out any adventure to the side, even both sides! They don’t want to miss anything. And rightly so. It may seem like a detour or a waste of time, just a looksee, but often there is good reason for it to happen even if we can’t see it clearly just yet. We learn more about the guides along the main road, go back with new depth and perspective that makes the central purpose more powerful. OR. We may simply decide we like that side road better and there is a turn in the road we never dreamed was available and we don’t go back! Being slightly askew fits our nature like a fine silk glove.

In this case it is the Neptune glove holding the trident! It may be the ship crossing the sea, playing magical music in the moonlight, the call of being with spiritual seekers at the ashram holding stillness and balance. We may be enchanted by art, artists, poets, a roadside shrine with profound words. Or it could be an Alice in Wonderland foray that seems nonsensical and we laugh and laugh just because if feels great to cut loose. Needed that! Gasp. Need to do that more often! Or, heck, we just got lost! Getting lost is a mission all its own and often brings lots of other questions as well! Nothing like a good getting lost in time, and space! It reminds us to slow down and see around corners, look down the rabbit hole!

Jupiter is moving faster, coming to Neptune. Jupiter is noted for it cheerfulness, optimism, faith and well being, that expands our sense of potential and just about everything else too! Jupiter travels, especially in social Libra, and brings news from everywhere it has been. Neptune is in Pisces, oceanic, so has been a few places itself. Jupiter and Neptune can share stories, the tallest tales of their encounters, freely exaggerating and making things up as they go! That charms Neptune and reminds him of the good old days when they used to be adventurers, unfettered and free at sea! Sometimes Neptune forgets what a magical devil may care being he is and gets bogged down in the daily hum drum. Thank God for visitors!

Jupiter is in Libra, the end of summer sign, Fall Equinox. Neptune is of Pisces, the sign that ends the entire zodiac and ends winter at Spring Equinox! Both mark opposite seasonal sign changes, passages. Libra is knowing it is time for alliances and strong winter partnerships. Jupiter gives optimism to get through the dark times with trustworthy companions. Pisces rules sleep and dreams, intuits the pitfalls, mends the Soul with its compassion and commiserating. Pisces guides the tribe, often with no one knowing, including themselves. They just be who they are. They can hum a lullaby, dance with magic in their feet, play music that lifts Spirits no matter what has happened. Kokopelli leads.

Jupiter’s wise justice is well known. Pisces recognizes this primordial state of consciousness. There is an elegance in their caring teachings. A casual conversation over a companionable meal, an important business decision meant to heal not harm, reassessing going back to/or to school, sharing different points of view in a relationship that needs some adjusting, special details about personal balance and health can be shuffled and all can stand back to see a bigger picture, the importance of a longer plan. Generous sensitivity may bring an understanding, forgiveness. It doesn’t mean everything will be solved, or a union will continue, or the patient will take your advice, but there will perhaps be some peace even if there is sadness and loss too. Letting go is a life skill we humbly need to acquire and apply with grace.

Jupiter in Libra sees the magician and artist in Neptune/Pisces. Jupiter begs us to let that beauty to come forward. We keep busy and sometimes forget that pay the rent/commercial part of life isn’t everything. Be with people who share your skills that let us take time out. Take time to be with friends, make music, paint, meditate, go for an afternoon walk in the woods, at the beach, under the stars, do nothing.

Jupiter wants to know about Matters of the Soul, and Pisces knows. They want to know if you are a True Believer and what that means. Should you go to the Church, read the good books? Which teachers are the best? In Libra, with Neptune in Pisces, the quest goes far and wide, through many dimensions. Many people seem to have a lot of good answers. Or you may be charmed by one in particular and find yourself dedicating yourself to them for a time, maybe the rest of your life. But, indeed, times change, teachers change, you change. There may be no single answer, just a potpourri of Evolutions.

Whether you return to the trail you first started on, or take the new trail you find yourself on, either way, you are not the person you used to be. You have seen some mysteries, there has been doubt, delving and wonderings, questions that will take lifetimes to answer. Sometimes it’s only the turn of your head, a moment’s glimpse, a singular flash of insight that leads you to a new vision. Right on spiritual compass, the transmutation happens.

Libra Emily Deschanel
x
Actress-Producer, Oct 11, 1976 Libra, Emily Deschanel has three planets in Libra – Mercury, Pluto and Sun, plus Venus, the ruler of Libra in a same degree semisextile with her Sun! What a beauty! Three planets in Scorpio – Mars, Uranus and Venus – love a great mystery and likes privacy. The name of her second son, born June 8, 2015, isn’t shown on the web! Saturn sextile her Sun gives her the forensic show and name Bones!

Emily is a bit old fashioned with Cancer Rising and Jupiter conjunct the Moon. She married in 2005, to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor and writer David Hornsby. They have two boys, both her pregnancies were written into the show Bones! Jupiter conjunct the Moon made her pregnancies famous!

She is a spirited vegan, committed animal rights supporter. Emily did the narration for My Child Is a Monkey and served as an associate producer on the documentary film How I Became an Elephant. She collaborated with PETA on a video encouraging mothers to raise their children as vegans.

Deschanel has worldly social experience, not surprising for a Libra. Emily grew up in Italy, Canada, France, Yugoslavia, England, and South Africa. She says of herself: ‘I’m definitely a people person. I love socializing and being around people and having a good conversation.’ She wanted to be an architect, but life as an actress happened instead!

Nov 3 Jupiter opposite Chiron
Nov 5 Jupiter inconjunct Uranus

Outer Planets with Libra 2015 to 2016! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Librans born midway through Libra will find themselves scanned, modified, challenged to stand clean and worthy. Respecting authority is one thing; surrendering to it simply because of rank and title may not be to your advantage. Get a credit rating on others before you do business. If an adversary, don’t underestimate them or delay your your responses. Get professional representation. If a relationship that is mean, sneaky, worrying, isn’t working, get serious help or call it quits and don’t look back! It will be better for both of you. If spiritual, gratefully release the Past, absolve burdens, reach out to what makes your heart smile!

Neptune is just before mid Pisces, still hasn’t reached the hump point, is finding its way. Pisces is across but off to the side from Libra. It acts like a feeler, antenna, for Libra, adds to Libra’s ability to sense any disturbance in the balance of forces. Pisces senses how those shifts fit in the greatest of possibilities. Neptune is the tides of Life and natural rhythms of repetition that keep building the sand on the beach, or taking it away. Libra sees the value of both. It blends, calls on each as needed. So many times both are true at the same time. The Wind blows; scenery changes; we are swept to a different vantage point. Remarkable!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final third of the degrees. Aries, the Warrior, is the sign opposite Libra, sign of strategy! A well placed advocate makes all the difference in advancing the cause! Uranus the Awakener in Aries is a powerful Initiator! This air planet in a fire sign ignites strange and marvelous ideas! Libra must keep a fast pace to open the gateways quickly enough for it all to happen! Libra can find the right place for them, channel them into a greater world to make a profound difference! If Libra has had a long standing pattern of being too accommodating, those days are over! It may feel like chaos at first, and maybe secretly quite welcome, fascinating to say the least! Uranus in Aries strikes for freedom and independence. More fun than in a long time; never the same again! Memorable if you can stand still long enough to breathe!

Chiron is also in Pisces, mainly starting the last third of the sign. Magi astrologers say Chiron is the number one marriage factor and great at business! Pisces and Libra are askew, inconjunct each other. Chiron is nudging the perimeters to the right and left up ahead. There may be alternative ways of healing. Side ventures may temporarily serve you. Pay attention to the signs as you go along, a slight course correction may be in order. A new partner, business or pleasure, may add to your intentions, add more music and insights, sweeten your Spirit with their compassion. With both Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, the strong influx of sometimes super sensitive energy can be confusing. Be cautious of addictions matters. Get extra support ahead of time for anticipated stressful events.

Saturn is still finding its walking feet in Sagittarius. It will make mid Sag in 2016! Factors in your chart from 0 to 16 degrees will be activated. Lucky for you Librans, it will sextile, open opportunities for your sign unless it challenges some other factors in your chart at the same time. Libra is social; Sagittarius is happy to take you as far as you are willing to travel and explore! Saturn is a pro, so seminars, publishing, special training, increase your value in the market place and you may be the speaker yourself! Company parties are in order. Working with seniors has its advantages. Except during Mercury and Mars retrogrades, remodel, break new ground! Build – a sustainable home, a school, a playground, a hotel! Saturn focuses the muscle; Libra adds the beauty, the incredible stone work, artistic details that sell for the best price! Saturn is a production leader and the job comes in on time. This is the perfect time to be equals and plan for the future together! If you are really lucky you may lose some weight about your hips and thighs!

Jupiter is neighboring in Virgo and will go through the whole sign by Sep 9, 2016! Would you believe sometimes Libra is more picky than Virgo?! Virgo gets technical, but Libra knows it’s more than a thing, it’s a living entity that needs an attractive touch to make it whole. Virgo makes an excellent quality long lasting product for the best price. Libra is the fine salesperson who makes sure the right people buy it and make referrals. Virgo provides practical services everyone needs. Libra draws up the contract to assure each party gets full measure. Jupiter wants to teach; Libra sends the invitations and arranges the treats. They are natural together.

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!

Libra Masters – Fall Equinox!


Libra Mabon Equinox Goddess Leaves Hair Sanderson
…by the magical Ruth Sanderson, Artist/Illustrator/Writer, Golden Wood Studio

There is a sense of Wisdom in Autumn Equinox, Libra time. There is a way of Being, experience, a collection of power, that makes a difference. By Autumn we have brought in the crops. By elder time, we are not so hurried by pressures around us. Things are appropriately slowing down, carefully done. Intention is more focused. Relationships have deeper meaning, alliances are made for times to come. For Libra, there is a greater consideration for all beings, each for their particular merit.

The Mind of your Spirit quickens to the calling, to get things done before the storms. As the Sun tips to the darkside, our need is to be clear. Pure strategy is called for. Impeccable, uncorrupted genius. Libra air sign transparency saves time, is vulnerable to and prospers from a greater sharing. Mergers are formed, some lifelong, some life saving.

Libras are the perfect Guides. They see us. They mirror us. They invite us together to share our willingness.

They are the Peacemakers of Heart & Soul. They ask how can we do this together? Who would you like to meet? Let’s go find them! Where there is stress, they can sweetly firmly tell the law and negotiate. Strategies come naturally to them. They know when to separate and meet again later.

They intend resolutions to be inclusive ~ good for both parties. Their experience and knowing human nature gives them the gift to think minutes and years ahead. They can be separate from their client yet almost be in their skin! They can see what’s in people’s hearts. Will they carry resentment? Will the relationship change? Making fair agreements now is so worth a lasting harmony and better health for all. Anticipation is valuable.

Being social is one level of relationship. We chat on the airplane, make a cherished connection. We bring the coworkers together to celebrate our success. Love relationships are at a deeper level, daily. It takes an acceptance, a genuine understanding to stay engaged. Rather than projecting ourselves on our partners, we need to see them for real. Perception is key. Taking time to reflect eases us along the way. Talking is way more than an information exchange, it is precious sharing as we grow together and things change.

There are beautiful ways to dance the marriage ritual. We can make our own laws of the household. We can be out of the box enjoying the challenges. There is marriage ballet and marriage Tai Chi, graceful, flowing. A symphony.

As we age, as times change, as our relationships season, we come to more than a living together. There is that Libra becoming one with each other.

Happy Equinox, Mabon! Blessed be….

WESAK FULL Flower Moon ~ Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow!
Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
May 2015 Sky Map

X
WESAK Full Flower Moon – Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow
Sunday May 3 at 8:42 PM Pacific – 13 Scorpio 23

Taurus 2015 WESAK Full Flower Moon Dyer
Though this is at Bow Lake, Banff, Alan Dyer of Alberta, captures a scene worthy of the Buddha’s birthday celebration, WESAK, in the Himalayas! 

Full Moons both divide and unite. Sun and Moon are as far apart as they can get in our heavens, giving each space to be themselves, the least fettered by the other. Unlike a New Moon Merger, they have spread their skills to the far winds, and being separated, they can see each other respectfully for who they are uniquely rather than so at one ment they see the New Moon merger rather than their difference. Since January, the Full Moons of the signs are coming before the New Moons, so the appreciation of difference comes first, setting the stage for a respectful and more whole merger of equals. This will be true until May/June 2016 when there will be two Gemini Full Moons, and the pattern then reversed, New Moons before Full Moons.

Full Moons unite anyway because they negotiate, offer options for partnership, enhance each others standing. Division is like multiplication when we each bring our skills to the project! We get to know each other, different ages, faiths, races. A rich blend creates more than was ever expected, has a life of its own!

The Moon in Scorpio has a nose for power and primal forces, wants to share, is a natural healer, is deeply intimate, stands with you from birth to death. They have lots of cards, some of which you will never be privy to. They are superb at recycling and detoxing, cleanup. Successful research and medicine, corporate funding, behind the scenes access are possible. Perfumes, mushrooms and vampires, and fine wine.

The Sun in Taurus, the sign of the Buddha, is steady in the Light. What Scorpio knows, Taurus, the knower of lasting value, brings to the surface to be tended and nurtured. Gentle Taurus, slow and safe, listens to the wild beasties, hears their song. Super strong Taurus is literally capable of carrying the Scorpio knowledge, so Scorpio is willing to share with them. Taurus is often a founder, founding organizations, funding teachings. Taurus’ staying power is surety there will be time enough for the teachings to spread and sink in. This pair are formidable fixed signs with forever intentions. Give them the job.

Mercury in Gemini is just barely separating opposition Saturn Sagittarius, having been exact at 1:35 AM! May 1 or 2 may have brought some harsh or fearful, sad words or thoughts about responsibilities or commitments, credibility matters. Calm yourself, face realities, focus on doing the best you can do in a timely fashion.

Venus has only four more days in Gemini, is separating a semi sextile Mars in Taurus (one of Venus’s signs). Values need to be put into action, loving appreciative words need to be spoken. Actions need to be stabilized by additional positive information that makes you more fully enjoy your work.

A SAME degree Jupiter Leo T Square is the big affair of the day! Getting where you want to go may not be so easy. But often, that IS the test. You may not have directions, or there is an error, it is the ‘wrong’ right day, someone else can’t go. Trust is called for. Trusting yourself, your feelings, that you can do on your own. Teachings may not be accepted just yet. Good intentions may not make it happen. The signs are all fixed, so give things time. Go with an open mind, you may be the one who changes! Be exuberant, but not so pushy they dig in. If you are the listener, breathe and breathe, relax. No matter how excited others are, you still can make up your own mind, and, oh heavens, disagree! Maybe the whole show never comes to pass and you save time and money! Or, there could be breakthroughs! All that stirring up was just what was needed for people to see!

♦ Pluto Capricorn Bow Pattern Maybe you haven’t heard of a Bow Pattern. It is two planets opposite each other, in this case the Full Moon, Sun and Moon, with a third planet, in this case Pluto, at a 1/3 and 2/3s point between them. Sun in Taurus is trine (120 degrees) Pluto Cap in the first and last Earth signs. Sun is making the approach, so Light is coming to darker Pluto Cap. Taurus has an inevitable quality, not easily dissuaded once in motion, and the Sun is indomitable. Expect a brightening, a steadying, a sensible reasoning. Sun trine Pluto is famous for successful major corporate business. Things that have been on the table for awhile, barring the Jupiter T Square matters, may come to fruition.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile (60 degrees) with Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn! There is harmony of Scorpio/Pluto and water/earth compatibility. Sextiles are enriched by different elements giving more opportunities, collaborations. Moon in Scorpio handles the monies adroitly, while lawmaker Capricorn drives the work force, is the Captain of Time. Scorpio is the delving psychoanalyst, while Capricorn the Builder composes the structure. They are adept at rebirth, renewing the old, archaeological to historical.

North Node in Libra, on a 19 year cycle, now conjuncts fixed star Vindemiatrix, inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces.

  • North Node Libra  North Nodes in general are thought to be where we are balancing the old opposite sign in our chart. Sometimes there is a little fear getting used to new territory, so opposite where old skills are held. Aries is opposite Libra, a supreme independence versus the can’t-make-up-your-mind Libra impotence. Yet Librans are tigers when they get to court as lawyers, are in a political fray, or strategize chess or wars. They are not shy at socializing! Relationships are a must. Libra is amiable and accomodating. Collaboration and partnership make good sense, independence need not be lost.
  • Vindemiatrix.  Add these factors: On the dark side, Astrologer Robson says V is Saturn/Mercury by nature, hence gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows, the WidowMaker. Ebertin & Hoffman, differently say it gives mental concentration, great for architects and businessmen. If it is badly placed, and especially so if in conjunction with Saturn or Neptune, there is a tendency to depressive moods, skepticism, a distrustful nature. Bernadette Brady takes us back to that V is in Virgo, sign of harvest. It offers the taking time to harvest what you have planted, to patiently collect the things that you like or need. Art collectors, stamp collectors, people who gather facts or things are expressions of this star.
  • The inconjunct with Neptune throws one off kilter a bit. With things slightly askew, there are shifts in perspective, leaks to the outside, infusions seep inside. Secure all the openings, or allow the ventilation, observing the opportunities as they come by, or you go by them. You can adjust by both letting go, making new space, and deliberately making an oblique foray worth the exploration! New relationships, what you might never have considered before, may be formed out of seeming chaos. Neptune softens the boundaries. There is confusion, some fear of the unknown, yet new awareness. Misunderstandings become compassion. Balance is differently weighted. Equality is redefined. Beauty is a mystery, amorphous, exquisite, shimmering before your eyes. Dreams may be your cues.

 In the background, Jupiter in Leo is slowly closing on the marvelous super trine to Uranus in Aries on June 22! If it connects with your chart, in Fire signs there is an undercurrent of excitement, confidence. Challenges will work out, be met. Teaching and learning will be happening all along, go to seminars! Unusual writings may be published. World wide matters will see heroes and heroines. Education for rights, human and animal, are being sounded. Fame and Fortune are possible! Fun and travel. Make university choices by June 22, the exact last aspect, but not during Mercury Retrograde May 18 to June 11. See an astrologer for your personal best dates. The philosophy of a lifetime may be selected.

Make it count because our next super favorable major Jupiter/Uranus combo isn’t until Dec 15, 2019 and it happens only once that time! It is in Earth signs, 2 degrees Capricorn/Taurus. If it doesn’t connect with your chart then, you will have to wait for another 4 years after that!

May your Full Flower Moon Circle be Blessed. Happy Wesak, Namaste.

Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
Sunday May 17 at 9:18 PM Pacific – 26 Taurus 56

Taurus, Buddhist Woman. Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during 77th birthday celebration of exiled spiritual leader Dalai Lama in Kathmandu.

A Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during the 77th birthday celebration of the exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Kathmandu, Nepal

Our Taurus New Moon is inconjunct the degree of the Galactic Center and conjunct the Fixed Star Caput Algol! One is as wonderful as the old lore of the other is bad, bad, bad! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! It is at 26 Sagittarius, the lucky sign of the Traveler and Teacher! Taurus teaches through Earth wisdom, by connecting through touch, symbolically supporting by planting crops. Taurus teaches the Peace of the Buddha and has body sense through Yoga and organic eating. Inconjunct indicates some kind of a query, a slight disturbance, a course correction.

 Old timer astrologers considered Caput Algol, 26 Taurus 23, at worst to be the most dangerous star in the heavens, beheading, the Demon Star. The list of famous people having it strongly in their charts will almost make you a believer. Yet, a binary blinking, pulsating, eclipsing double-star, it is also associated with extreme creativity! There’s hope! At the same time, there is a symbolic constant death/rebirth scenario, that puts you in touch with intense maximum experiences. Burn out or ride it. So this New Moon may be quite more intense than Taurus’s usual calm self. It may be internal or you might need to get out of its way!

New Moons have their own kind of intensity as the two Lights in the heavens conjoin. The dark opens doors to inner realms. There is a quietening so we hear more subtly. This is a late degree stand alone New Moon, stand alone meaning it isn’t connected with other planets. Things are unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Things that are ending are blessed and their maturity celebrated. There is always a child quality and super Feminine to New Moons, as Mama Moon, also of Children comes to be with Father Sun. What’s new is begun, honored with initiation. Another way of being with the New Moon is to let things wind down, just stop. Take time out, rest. Let go of old expectations, be thankful for what you have. Taurus can sit like the Buddha or do proactive Tai Chi. Both are totally in tune expressions.

North Node in Libra is now past the exact inconjunct with Neptune in Pisces. It is still conjunct the fixed star Vindemiatrix. See above

Zesty Mars, now in Gemini, is separating the opposition it made with Saturn in Sagittarius the 14th. If that connected with your chart, you will still be working out what it brought. Mars in Gemini is clever indeed, trying to dodge Saturn’s rules, boundaries, may be exhausted from the effort. Yet there are times a steadying force is a relief. Mars in Gemini can just spin, flail about with no direction. Though that kind of freedom can be exhilarating and lead you to amazing ideas, it can get nervous if frightened and forget the objective. Saturn in Sag helps us keep on course, the long term goal in mind. Mars in Gemini is an information gatherer par excellance! Saturn at times gets stuck in its righteous routine, needs a nudge to move along, and with new information comes to life again!

Venus, Taurus’s planet, currently in Cancer, trined Neptune in Pisces the day before! Fresh dreams, spiritual intention, connection with the Masters. You want more than just money. Beauty is etheric. Music and the arts may have been endowed or you resolved to take up dance again! Your home may be ready for a remodel, or smoothies be back on the menu. An altar at home could be inspiring. At this New Moon you could do a dedication circle. You may miss your Mother, love your children more, so proud. You think of Soulmates, give gratitude for your blessings. Anchor them at the New Moon. Give praise.

 Mercury is in STATION! That means it appears to be ‘standing still’ in the sky before turning RETROGRADE the NEXT DAY, MAY 18 at 6:50 PM Pacific. Mercury, in one of its own signs, Gemini, is sextile Jupiter, but doesn’t make the exact sextile because of the retrograde! There still is effect because they come within one degree of each other. In fact, they have been in working distance since May 9. There have been numerous ideas, abundant ideas. Learning has been worth it, teaching given, schools selected, plans made. Short journeys are fun. BUT. They will only go so far then abandoned. They may or may not be completed, likely not, or not in the way expected. Signing contracts won’t be enough to hold people to old premises. Don’t hold people to their promises. Probably had best intentions, but the winds are blowing a different direction now. Mercury won’t come back and make that sextile exact until July 3! Lot of water over the dam by then! The amps shall have been upped and what happens then will be amazingly better than what almost happened now. You will be glad after all!

 Pluto in YOD, double inconjunct, with Jupiter and Mercury! This is part of a complex planetary pattern that has been with us since February! Jupiter makes its final inconjunct with Pluto May 21, just 4 days after the New Moon! So this New Moon’s new beginnings are crucial to the conclusion of Jupiter with Pluto. Mercury in one of its own signs Gemini, adds it’s communication skills to relay what information it can, but retrogrades before all is complete. It’s as if that’s enough for now, let’s rethink, upgrade, don’t forget what we have done already….

  • Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Inconjuncts adjust, skew to the side for more awareness and perspective. They can be unsettling, but Jupiter is up for the game, loves a foray! It loves the periphery, looking afar and wide, acquiring an enhanced chest of knowledge. Life is bigger, richer. Pluto in Cap dislikes its routines being upset, but sees the advantages and is on board pretty quickly. See more!
  • Mercury Gemini inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn, won’t make the exact inconjunct with Pluto. There has been inquisitiveness, steady prolonged probing of Pluto’s secrets since the 14th due to Mercury being in Station. But Pluto knows how to hold its own with sniffy Mercury. Mercury could get close, might give old Pluto a shiver, but since Mercury retrogrades, the aspect doesn’t become exact, Pluto is saved! Mercury may try to sign the papers, but they are pulled back, put on hold, likely will be forgotten, even misplaced. Other matters take our attention, causing numerous further shiftings. An alchemy occurs and without realizing, what was, simply is no more. The exact aspect will happen down the road June 28.
 Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn does happen! Pluto in Capricorn can at times be a bit gruff, not impressed by fluff. Yet Venus in Cancer is such a Sweetie, a little melting happens, plus, she’s safely on the other side of things, and out of reach too. She’s intuitive and knows how to prod the old wise one, flirts and flatters a bit and might even bring cookies! So he listens in spite of himself, and she’s smarter than he anticipated. She knows cycles, has good business sense, wants to secure the investment, has a sense of long term. There’s history, maybe good breeding. Real estate, restauranting, children’s business and organizations will likely be successful and Pluto may decide to do some funding. Might not be an encouraging start, but stay with it, ask for what you want.

Oppositions do mean letting go, separating, as well. Could be a breakup, no more hypnotism, improper seduction, or being kept by paying your way. Standing back you may wonder what you saw there. Age may be a factor, disparity of goals, children may leave home, you may move. But remember, Mercury is retrograde tomorrow, things will change. You or they may return. If you get a new place or job during the Rx, know that it is likely temporary if a home, the job may change from what was intended.

 Chatty Mars in Gemini trine the North Node in Libra is unusually looking forward to socializing, even partnering a bit. He more often happily stands alone, simply responding as inspired, moment by moment. But now, there is the potential of another comrade in arms, one who is supportive and helps with those social graces. It could be one person or an inspiring couple living that way. The more he talks, the more thoughts are linked, the more he sees.

 Jupiter in Leo continues to close on the marvelous trine to Uranus in Aries June 22! Performance is like lightning! There is a spark in the air, engagement that warms the heart. Things are bigger and petty differences put in the live and let live category, eccentricities celebrated as gifts! Great numbers of Souls are making change, a wave of Light! See more above

Make it so.

During Mercury Retrograde, the next Full Moon, Gemini/Sagittarius Strawberry Moon, is called the Festival of Humanity by some. It’s June 2, 9:19 AM Pacific, at 11 Sagittarius 49.
