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!

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….

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.

See also Nov 24 Jupiter Square Pluto in FIVE Planet T Square! the aspect that followed the 2016 Presidential Election.

This aspect and it’s companion Saturn trine Uranus, May 17/18 are the prominent aspects of 2017’s May 10 Full Flower Moon, Wesak – Buddha’s Birthday chart!

For the May 18 second, retrograde, Saturn trine Uranus, see Saturn, Jupiter with Chiron & Uranus Foursome! Aspect #1

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!

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

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.

Pisces Equinox Solar ECLIPSE NEW Moon!
 
Aries Lunar ECLIPSE FULL Pink Moon + Cardinal TSquare!
Aries New Moon ~ Nodes, Venus, Mutual Reception

Pisces to Aries 2015 Equinox New Moon Solar Eclipse - Hands Water Fire Steam

Equinox Total Solar ECLIPSE NEW MOON! Water to Fire!
Friday Mar 20 at 2:36 AM Pacific – 29 Pisces 27

Technically this is a Pisces NEW Moon, but it is happening on Spring Equinox, the day the Sun goes into Aries, from the last sign to the first! It is a time of new beginnings, from water to fire! As we say goodbye and gently release old obscurities, we invite and set our sights on what’s fresh, gleefully rampant, here and now! It’s officially SPRING!

Moon is the go between, lining up with, obscuring the Sun! Though not visible in the Americas, the symbolic Shadow exists. We can see what is hidden by brilliance, subtle forms revealed. They are our cues to look a little more deeply, not judge a book by its cover. Moon is transmitter of Sun’s magnificent Light! Aries, immediately upcoming, is above all, Initiation. It is when the days tip to more hours of Light and sight. It is the place of Sunrise every single day. In Yoga we do the Salutation to the Sun to invite our resonance with Divine Spirit, to be in accord with what’s greater than we are. Infused with purity and clarity, spontaneous action happens in a moment. We ARE the Light!

This is our first Eclipse of 2015 yet the Eclipse degree is the last degree of Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac! Fully mature, there is a transference of indelible Spirit energy, with permeable vapor exchange as the medium, to Aries that will carry the Flame, the Light! Energy will shift from immersion to emergence! Insights, compelling compassion will ignite undaunted action, championing for the underdog, an inspiring call for immediate change! Believing becomes doing.

29 Degrees Pisces is the degree of the Fixed Star Sheat, accidents, floods and shipwrecks. Get out your waders and don’t take silly chances! 29, The last degree, always has a sense of finality about it. What is done is done, time has run out. Celebrate your accomplishments! Plan ahead to have your intentions of this Lunar cycle completed to your satisfaction or as reasonably possible. You are always on Spirit time, and it’s all good. Even the smallest steps can be symbols of great personal accomplishment. Know your own Soul.

This New Moon Eclipse essentially stands alone at that 29 degree marker. It’s closest aspect is an out of sign trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, water to fire. As soon as Sun and Moon finish Pisces, 3:45 PM Pacific, they will then become in sign trine with Saturn, all three then being in fire signs and wanting action. Saturn is politely but staunchly guarding, making sure energy is being specifically and well applied to the long term plan. Aries is more instant, but Saturn wants seeable honorable accomplishment. Saturn is practical, realistically optimistic, not intending to be a damper, but indeed, quite the contrary, happy to see you and work together for great promise! It’s ordained!

Venus in Taurus, one of its own signs, is inconjunct, teasing and tempting old Saturn from the periphery. She soothes the rough edges, wants what she wants, helps stabilize a helpless Old Soul in a Sagittarian chaos of optimism. Saturn has at times felt out of his league, yet sees the benefits of Sag’s ideas and, given time, can make them happen. Venus speaks to the excellent values available, pretties things up. Saturn perseveres, not wasting time. Good team. Venus knows the need for daily comfort, and Saturn can use some admiration for his hard work. So much is expected of him. He’s a little more generous when he experiences appreciation, when he knows what a difference getting it makes.

The long time Uranus square Pluto had it’s final 7th of 7 aspects only 5 days prior, March 16! It is still so close, these outer planets moving very slowly, we are really still very much in it. This Eclipse brings inklings of times to come, opens doors to wellsprings of revelation, puts us in touch with pure source. Like driving a car, once we learn how, we continue. For some of us understanding, visions, come with a good swim, meditation or a deep sleep dream, maybe while chatting with a trusted confidant. Learn your process so it becomes a life tool for you. Earth, then Moon, then Sun are lined up perfectly in this Total Eclipse! Sun is sending his Light through this awesome conduit. Don’t miss it!

Five planet Stellium in Pisces! Mercury YOD  Mercury has just left Neptune, Pisces’ planet. Pisces is ultra sensitive to changes in the valence. Mercury is in an awareness aspect, inconjunct with Jupiter, who has recently been in the same kind of connection with Pluto. And communicator Mercury, more a listener in Pisces, will be in contact with Pluto 1:25 PM Pacific the 22nd. What goes around comes around. Purpose is essential. Mercury will pass that information directly to Chiron now at 18 Pisces. Mercury is now where Chiron was when Jupiter aspected it in the recent Jupiter YOD! Through that teachings can be shared, relationships healed, business infused with more caring.

Pass it on.

Almost Total Lunar ECLIPSE FULL Pink MOON + Cardinal TSquare
Saturday April 4 at 5:05 AM Pacific – 14 Libra 24

For you night sky lovers, the Full Moon Sky map WITH planets! (April below March)

Aries 2015 Lunar Eclipse Full Pink Moon Cherry Blossoms

Beauty be! Pink is a great color. Aries colors are white and red; Pink is their combination! White is for Purity, the first of all the signs, a clean slate. Red is for heart and courage and fast getaways! LOL! It’s a great primary color, the color of action. Libra is the other sign of an Aries Full Moon, this time a Lunar Eclipse! Libra enjoys pastels and flowers and isn’t usually a pushy soapbox type, but would like to find a middle road when possible. But. If necessary, they are great strategists, whether legal or war or chess, and will take point if need be, the darker side of that pastel kicking in. They can be foxy devils, clever as can be, argue both sides AND the middle! Makes your head spin and you never knew what hit you! If there is trouble, they can help, be your champion!

Visible at MOONSET in the Americas! It’s an early watch, the central eclipse at 5 AM Pacific. For your area see this site for Visible Eclipses! Lunar Eclipses have Earth between Moon and Sun, Earth’s shadow falling on Moon. Sun shoots the Light at Earth. Earth filters the energy into the form of a shadow, teleporting the collective human energy of all Souls to the Moon in Libra, sign of relationships. The Shadow energy has all our sorrows, all our bravery and love, our questions and wisdom. The Moon’s Light, being Sun’s reflector, in this case, will emerge giving this profound energy back to Father Sun to burn away the dross, to relight the candles of all our flames in greater Purity, along with a greater capacity to see and learn. Count on it.

This makes the Cardinal TSquare with Pluto all the more potent! We are still not done with that Uranus square Pluto. The Eclipse axis makes a right angle T Square. The Sun is with Uranus, and both Sun and Moon square Pluto at the T point! Cardinal signs want action, get things started!

  • Sun with Uranus and trine Jupiter! Remarkable! Sun in Aries loves/needs independence; Uranus is the planet of Freedom and Friendship! Could be a unique couple, an extraordinary group of freedom fighters traveling to the far reaches of the Planet! Change becomes a personal mission. Wild differences yet a single mindedness of purpose. The mission could be Holy or a lark, like getting away with stealing the plane, a little Robin Hooding! With the Libra Moon in the wings, past alliances may come into play, and there may be more disparity or camaraderie, or both, than expected. Can go either way. A little vacation maybe? Combine robust activity with gracious candlelight dinners.
  • Moon opposite Uranus, sextile Jupiter! Moon in Libra would prefer more gentile friends rather than volcanic upstarts like Sun/Uranus in Aries. Who knows what situation may need to be massaged back into a reasonable facsimile of sanity?! And yet, they understand each other to a degree. Moon loves their family group, and in Libra may be proud of their community standing. Uranus loves their extended family of dear friends that adore each others foibles. Put the right ones together at the right time and we can save the world! Throw in a leader like Jupiter in Leo and voila! We may be at a heartful seminar or a high altitude spa with sublime views that fill you to Infinity! Remember, this is an Eclipse; the gates are open!
    X
  • Sun square Pluto This one makes me tremble a bit. Not likely easy. Sun is in a challenging aspect with Pluto four times a year, but usually not also at an Eclipse. Aries is no coward, but Pluto is an oldtime deeper martial arts warrior anticipating Aries feints and jabs. Pluto can swallow you whole into its underworld, not an Aries element. Aries often goes it independently, where Pluto has its corporate bevy of lawyers, bodyguard, and doesn’t always fight fair. Yet this time, Aries does have the Eclipse to back it up, it’s Uranian friends who can employ out of the box tactics, and the clash may have a resounding Titan effect! It is possible there is no win, but a stand off, not even agreeing to disagree, but they go their own ways, forever, no point to waste time.

    In a different example, Pluto in Capricorn may be glad for fresh youthful new Aries blood! Been needed. What was getting stuffy sees new hope and leadership! Yes, it’s different, but it can be tried out bit by bit and integrated safely. The laws may need updating, timing changes can be made, production processes modified. Departments of life and biz can be reshaped into diamonds! Aries is grateful someone is listening and putting them in charge, ha, as it should be. They are learning some tips from the experienced pros though. Not smooth all the time, but worth it. Next!
  • Moon square Pluto Another challenging aspect. Both are sensitive intuitive water planets, nurturers, but Moon is easily hurt, Pluto can be vengeful. And Libra and Capricorn don’t always see eye to eye. Moon in Libra is wanting entertainment at home. Pluto in Capricorn would prefer a private corporate crony golf date or business engagement. Libra is sweet and social; Capricorn can be tough as nails, all and only business. Hard to find time for the kids. However, Libra loves its finery, a lovely home, adornments, spa days, plays and symphonies and Pluto in Cap can give the funds. Libra is proud of their mate’s well earned excellent reputation. Pluto appreciates Moon Libra’s social connections, beauty and keen intelligence. Librans are fine companions and consultants. They quickly find excellent solutions that work for almost everyone. Total asset. Whether business or personal, give each other lots of praise and thanks.

Pluto at the T square point can act as a scanner for Sun and Moon, looking behind the scenes for unorthodox intrigue, romantic or financial, see when to watch your back. It can look for hurt that needs healing, body, mind or Soul. In Capricorn it senses breaks in continuity or rigidity that doesn’t serve. It can add a little grease for the creaky spot. It can let you know when an ending is nigh, when to let go in a good way, take advantage of a last chance. It makes for a stupendous infusion, flavoring the incoming informations with Plutonian power and insight! Pluto is maximum sharing, financial mergers, relationship integrity, life and death. Use your herbs, perfumes, flower essences to invite its potency in a good way!

As a sender, it can be your missionary and guardian in your new prospectus of life! It seeks alliances to establish a secure network. It has a deep charisma that over time proves substantial. Let it do it’s work and compatible connections will be made as it severs some, clearing your channels, finds others on your same wavelength that enhance your channels. It might seem a bit devious at first, the waiting might be nerve wracking. But face up to what’s real and keep moving. Times are shifting.

Mercury semisextile Neptune trine Jupiter! SemiSextiles have more potency than many expect! Mercury is logical, and in Aries is perception at the speed of Light! Neptune sees the whole frame, gives intuitive split second perspective. Pay good attention to what you think you see. First thoughts count. Mercury and Jupiter rule opposite signs Gemini and Sagittarius. It’s one thing to think, another to know the meaning, to have Faith beyond words, and a Plan! Mercury carries ideas and data, while Jupiter in Leo publishes, teaches, lets the world know what’s up! It might be the right time for you to sign a contract. You might make or get big news!

Mars, more gentle in Taurus, is persistently pestering, inconjunct Saturn. As Venus was inconjunct Saturn at the Solar Eclipse, Mars is this Lunar Eclipse. Venus set the stage, created a longing; Mars wants to get it, and is less willing to compromise in the process. Taurus common sense is evident, and, if wise, Saturn takes steps to get things rolling.

Use flowers in your Full Moon gathering ceremony this time! Think pink!

Happy Good Friday, Passover, and Easter to you who celebrate them.

Aries NEW Moon ~ Nodes, Venus, Mutual Reception
Saturday April 18 at 11:57 AM Pacific – 28 Aries 25

StarWatcher by legendary Jean "Moebius" Giraud, reminds me of a certain saucy innocence of astrological sign Aries!
StarWatcher by legendary Jean “Moebius” Giraud, French artist, cartoonist, and writer, who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées tradition.

This New Moon stands alone too, as did the Pisces Solar Eclipse! At 28 degrees, it doesn’t engage any other planets. This can be a purity, untainted effect or reception, unstoppable. It could be isolated and unintegrated. It may mean inspiration comes but is on hold. No planets but the Moon will be activating this point by conjunction for a long time! Most of the planets that would ‘catch up’ are slow moving outer planets. The first planet to activate this point by conjunction will be the Sun on April 17, 2016, one day off an exact year from the date of the New Moon!

Mercury conjunct Mars the Planet of Aries  Generally we think of Mercury/Mars combinations as a quick and done temper, but, in Taurus, Mercury is pondering while Mars is holding steady. If in agreement, Mercury is so pleased Mars makes its thoughts come true! If they do get into a snit, it might be memorable and they may dig in, stubborn in attachment to their point of view. Go easy and take hug breaks. Being grounded is essential. Touching what you are thinking about helps make it real, to ‘know’ it. No amount of pushing will speed this combo up. They like the pace they are moving at. Yet, Mercury is nimble and curious; Mars is still out in front even if leading from behind. Simple uncostly solutions become obvious. Values become tangible. People can take time out and just breathe. Ideas bubble to the surface in this relaxed environment. Bring the outdoors indoors; put flowers by the door….

Three planets and North Node at 8/9 degrees.

The North Node is at the point of a YOD (where two of the purple lines come to a point) with Mercury and Neptune, they being sextile (60 degrees). The North Node is considered by many to be a Karmic point, meaning it has deep meaning to the Soul’s process. The South Node, at the opposite point, is thought to represent our Past, for better or worse. What we did there (Past Lifetimes), we over did, under did, did really all too well. Often we have super skills there. The North is where we need to learn how to better do that sign to bring balance. We may feel a bit scared to go there since it is unstable ground as yet.

  • Mercury inconjuncts the North Node first from the symbolic Virgo side, then the symbolic Scorpio side each year. At the New Moon it is on the Scorpio side, in the sign Taurus, Scorpio’s opposite sign. Values are deeply noted and absorbed into the mind. They will have staying power. Mysteries will be revealed and healed as if a concentrated beam is upon them. There could be an abiding Peace within. Since the Nodes are on a 19 year cycle, there won’t be another Mercury inconjunct at this degree for 19 more years. This Peace with what IS, may calm, even becalm, the Libra North Node’s wishes for relationship as had been thought to be what should be. Time may seem to stand still for a bit. It may be realized that relationship is specific like snowflakes, each unique as the people who form them, forming a third energy, the Union of the bond only they two can make.
  • Neptune in Pisces inconjuncts from the Virgo side of the North Node. Again there is an unstated opposition since Pisces is Virgo’s opposite sign. Neptune has utmost compassion when it is healthy of Spirit. It would do anything it could to bring you that balance you are seeking, the good relationship with yourself, with a special mate if you wish. Healing may come from spiritual practice, nature’s remedies, changing the way you think.

This New Moon in Aries, and the Nodes Aries to Libra, show us that Independence has its merits, and so do healthy mutually supportive relationships. There are times it doesn’t make sense to go it alone. Sharing is more safe in dangerous places. Harsh winters are better weathered together. Partners see our blind spots. Two can do more than one when in alignment. And making love….

Venus trine the North Node in Libra, one of Venus’ signs! Venus in Gemini of Twins points to twosomes too. We thrive when appreciated, touched with affection. Advertising lets people know what we have of value to share. Siblings can bless us with their loving us, foibles and all. Grace flows.

Mercury Taurus semisextile mutual reception Venus Gemini  April 15 to 30, while Mercury is in Taurus, Mercury and Venus are in each others signs, these only a sign apart. Mini same degree aspects like this are especially potent when in mutual reception. Mercury is calmed in Taurus, more patient, stays with the topic, absorbs and grows to appreciate what it sees. Venus values communications. It makes what it talks about seem very valuable; you need it, want it, jewels in the crown! Venus wants to let people know about it! Cherishing words enfold us sweetly. In a good way, we can speak with Grace.

Venus square Neptune  Everything you see is not always exactly as it appears! Some things are downright unknowable. Venus goes a little crazy, trying from every angle to figure it out, but Neptune has no trouble putting up the veils and slithering off into oblivion. Or so it ‘appears!’ Who knows where the Dragon went?! Sleight of spiritual hand. Nothing will be known until the right time though we may be treated to glimpses…. Losses, longings unfulfilled, may feel more poignant for a few days. You or leaders may lose faith or be proven false or falsely accused. Let go for a few days; give it some time. The channel will change soon….

Venus sextile Jupiter This is the 4th aspect with Venus! Love and beauty are up! This aspect is loving and lucky, building to exact 11:41 AM Pacific on the 22nd! Since it is the last of the set, the outcome is likely positive! Yes! Venus in Gemini has a large chat penchant! Jupiter in Leo gives plenty to chat about! Jupiter magnanimously likes to share, teach, go places together and Venus in Gemini won’t be bored! Jupiter swoops her under his arm and loves his bright little companion. They have literally rich ideas, facts and proposals sparkling with promise! Venus has the right words; Jupiter has the confidence and the big ideas. Worth the adventure! Romance may happen along the way!

Jupiter turned Direct (forward) April 8 and is now back within 3 degrees of, approaching its final exact inconjunct with Pluto May 21. See all about that!

Have a zesty yet gentle good time!

Lighting the Way

SPRING EQUINOX  takes on new meaning this year, worldwide. It’s not just a romp in the St Pat’s clover, but that special equinoctial sunrise that occurs no matter what, promising more Light.  And it comes, no matter how dark the dawn. For many of us it will be a lot more thoughtful. What’s really important. Economically it hasn’t been easy, now this with the Sendai, Japan Quake, people having it harder than just economic troubles – no job, no home, loss of loved ones, literally freezing cold, gone nuclear for real, no hairbrush.  A whole nother perspective.

So, BE the Light, be the beacon. Let people know you’ve got something, that they can ‘follow’ the good stuff you’ve got. To have it and not lead it is an error of omission. Put your feet to the fire and learn how to lead. You will learn quickly. It comes naturally when you offer what you love. People will be ever so grateful.

SEE the Light in others, that sparks when they Light uP!  Ask them to share with you. Learn how to learn. Education and learning are forms of Light. If you really want to get fancy, it’s EnLightenment – not just that the Lights go on, but how you learn, that you share, have the desire!  EnLightenment is not just an end result, but the entire Path!

As you walk our beloved Earth, be mindful of your every breath, HER every breath. Look for that SUNRISE in every moment.

Eyes wide open, Blessed be.

In response to the recent sensational articles about your possibly being a different sign, for example the Fox News article, let me tell you, you may be and always have been, and you are still what you always were!  Here’s how it goes…. 

Circles within Circles, Many Layers

There are TWO astrological systems.

One is based on the seasons, earth centered, what we predominantly use in the Western world today, called Tropical (Tropic of Cancer, Capricorn).  The other is based on constellations, stars, and is called Sidereal, primarily used in Eastern cultures.  Some feel seasonal Tropical astrology rules more mundane earthly matters and Sidereal is more spiritually oriented.  Both are correct working systems and describe the same things in the sky, just called by different names, in different terms. 

Sometimes they correspond exactly!  As stated at WikipediA, here are the technical details that make it so – ‘As the Earth spins on its axis, it “wobbles” like a top, causing the vernal equinox to move gradually backwards against the star background, (a phenomenon known as the Precession of the equinoxes) at a rate of about 30 degrees (one Zodiacal sign length) every 2,160 years. Thus the two zodiacs would be aligned only once every 26,000 years and were aligned about 2,000 years ago when the zodiac was originally established.’  Because astronomers study stars, they agree with Siderealists; we are that sign.  So, there are two different systems, one astronomical, one seasonal, both astrological.  At this time, there is a 25.5 degree variance, that’s why most people are one sign (a ‘month’) off whichever system you prefer to use.  For example, a Leo in Tropical may be a Cancer in Sidereal.  In my case, I am a Leo in both systems since I was born in late Tropical Leo.  But other planets in my chart do change ‘signs.’  This is nothing new, it has always been this way, but from time to time, someone thinks they have made a great discovery!  And it makes provocative news!

Since astrology is based on observational relationships, a lot of the descriptions in one system are like the descriptions of the other – ie Sidereal Cancer is described as a lot like Tropical Leo.  Makes sense since they are describing the same thing in the heavens, the same time of year the Sun passes through that constellation, same kind of weather for the farmer’s crops, how much clothes you wear.  Personally, I don’t care what you call them, or what system you use, as long as you do it well.  In time, research will level the playing field.  Now that we are recording birth times, research can be more comprehensive, factors can be isolated for accuracy of results. 

At one time there were as many as 18 signs in use, and at another as few as 6, with other variations in between.  Dividing the sky and the year is an arbitrary thing. Different cultures through time have used entirely different stars in totally different ‘constellations.’  We use the ones used by the Greeks and Romans. And since they were established, about 2000 years ago, stars have moved!  What we see in the sky now is not the same as what they saw!  In the recent articles, some are suggesting we add a 13th sign, Ophiuchus (Oh-fee-YOU-cuss), the snake holder – a constellation that has always been there, of course!  It’s also called Serpentarius – does that remind you of Scorpio (associated with snakes) and Sagittarius?  It would be between them!  See the proposed calendar dates.  Why, why not?  It’s so much fun to tinker with things!  To have 12 signs was chosen to  work well with our 12 months calendar even though they don’t correspond by dates.  It would be so cool if they did, don’t you think?! 

In addition to astronomy, mathematics plays a big part in how astrologers ‘divide’ the sky.  For a detailed historical accounting of the development of mathematics correlated with astronomy/astrology, of chart division, read R W Holden’s Elements of House Division, if you can locate one. 

Some people swear by one or the other system, Tropical, Sidereal; some use both and feel each one works better for particular things.  If you have time, check it out!  Most Westerners have their Tropical charts.  If you want, I would be honored to do your Sidereal chart, only $5.  I don’t to the interpretation, but you can enjoy pursuing it on your own once you have your chart!  I use the Fagan-Allen version, but can do Lahiri, DeLuce, Raman, Krishnamurti, Usha-Shashi, Djwhal Kuhl, Sri Yukteswar, JN Bhasin, Larry Ely, Takra I or II, Sundara Rajan, or Shill Pond versions!  You mean there are variations on the variations?!  But of course!

I love it how people, who don’t believe in signs, are defending their signs, saying it’s really them, and they don’t want to change to that other sign, yuk!  That’s pretty funny, and totally endearing!  What’s cool is they really do ‘know’ themselves. 

Stay true!
