Happy Birthdays, Libras!

Libra 3 Planet Stellium John Trudell

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Libra 2016/17 TimeLine!

Mercury in Virgo went direct/forward Sep 21. Those matters will be finishing through Oct 6!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Libra!

Libra Let there be Peace on Earth Begin with Me

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Have a great new year!

Libra Poised at Fall Equinox!

Libra White Rose for Purity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Moon Portal!   – Venus Trine Neptune, Saturn T Square!

Full Hunter’s Moon!  – Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune, Sextile Saturn, Square Pluto!
x


New Moon Magical Portal!  – Venus Trine Neptune, Saturn T Square!

Friday Sep 30, 5:11 PM Pacific at 8 Libra 15 

New Moon Magical Portal! Stone Arch Night Sky Day Path Girl
Thank you to artist Jeremiah Morelli in Bavaria, the Soul who made this Portal for us.

New Moons are always an ending and beginning, a Moonless night, a bright day to come! In Libra, at Fall Equinox, it is a balance of dark and light, the poise of equal day and night – as above, so below. Like Sunset, it is the time of year we go from the light into the dark. It is an embracing poignant threshold, exultance for completion, inspiration to further ventures! With the Grace of the Past guiding us, let us walk forward together…transdimensional, effortless.

The most recent connection our New Moon made was with Jupiter, planet of abundance! Sun crossed Jupiter Sunday the 25th, and the Moon 9:54 AM New Moon morning! The Moon occulted/eclipsed Jupiter, so they were in perfect alignment, making the Moon/Jupiter fusion more potent. No guessing what the message was, it’s clear! Make special notes of prosperous ideas, blessed connections to follow up on, future plans you would enjoy, trips you might take, good advisors to see. Get do dates on your calendar!

Mars in Capricorn is about to square Jupiter, Oct 5, so there will be some stumbling around, different opinions on which choice to make, path to take. Mars in Capricorn can be pretty intimidating at times, and sound like the final authority, but Jupiter in Libra can sidestep on the dance floor! No straight answer might mean I’m thinking or it could mean no, but I don’t wanna tell you cuz you might get real mad. If I don’t show up for the appt that is usually my answer. If Jupiter is merely being a bit lazy and complacent, a good swift ‘kick’ may just be needed to get things going. But be careful. Capricorn may have the law on their side. Jupiter knows the lawyers. Wait for a better time to sign papers, go into partnership. Be ready to just let some things go. A better circumstance is likely to come along.

The New Moon first engages Venus in the next sign, semi sextile Scorpio. She, can be man or woman or a couple, leads with the most exquisite scents, a wave of her enchanting veil, wines that lower resistance, a personal connection may be made. Libras are always looking for good partners and Venus in Scorpio senses where good money can be made, strong lasting alliances forged. Libra likes socializing, taking the measure of various peoples and their offerings. In Scorpio Venus checks credit records, accountability, sources materials at the right price, holds confidentiality when needed.

Then Sun & Moon inconjunct Neptune in his own sign Pisces. He is retrograding back to make the meet. There may be confusion about where, when and with whom to meet, but there is an instinct and it may seem like a miracle, but the connection is made. Artistic insights, a dance that expresses far more than words, exotic foods from across the world are sweet benefits that open our hearts.

Venus and Neptune are linked by a lovely less than one degree trine! Venus is love, the deeper kind in Scorpio. Neptune is Soulmates and Soul love, compassion. In person, this can be the love of a lifetime. In Spirit it is timeless and rare. You may be charmed beyond understanding, changed beyond human conception. Venus and Neptune connect sweetly three times a year, but not always to your chart in such a way as to bring this about, but when it does, you will know it with no doubt. It can be truly magical. In other ways, it is an amazing artistic potential. Just as with Soulmates, there is a mystical union, an at one ment with the message the art expresses. There may be an exotic encounter with loved ones, extraordinary Beings, mermaids, avatars, angels.

Sun & Moon are three degrees from sextile Saturn in Sagittarius. So much can be accomplished with travelers, teachers, anthropologists, archaeologists, architects and geologists. The world has so much to offer. Be a speaker, coach, mentor. Seek one! Get terrific travel rates.

Saturn is squaring the Moon’s Nodes within a degree! Saturn and the nodes are considered Karmic, things of the past and future. Saturn often wants to hang on, but in Sagittarius is more willing to move on, seeing the perspective of a more long term choice. The South Node, considered to be the Past of the two nodes, is in Pisces. Neptune here at the South Node, increases the sensitivity to what is perceived. Pisces can be matters of the Soul, far more meaningful than tonight’s dinner or life as we know it today. We may find our visions pierced and leaky, not serving us as they used to. Light may seep into dark corners so we see a cost for not making change that we didn’t realize needed doing. Saturn in Sagittarius can be a wise leader, knowing what we must do to break the old bonds, lighten our burden, free us. The North Node is in Virgo, and God knows how they can clean up, put things together in a better order, heal what ails us. Sometimes they crack the whip and say get over it. Other times they are so tender as to make you weep. Either way, you are sorted.

Mercury in one of its signs, Virgo, is opposite Chiron in Pisces and inconjunct Uranus in Aries! Chiron and Uranus have been traveling with one another since 2008 and will be until 2021, thirteen years! Planet wide changes often take way more than 13 years, but they are making their contribution! See more. Healer Chiron and ChangeMaker Uranus have been making adjustments worldwide – some we never expected to see in this lifetime, others agonizingly slow and sad. At this New Moon, Mercury is the spokesperson. As in phrases like if you can’t name it you can’t claim it, if you can’t see it you can’t heal it, we need to get the Word out, whether by voice or video. Change is being speeded up by Internet knowledge, technology that shows what really happened. We are all learning how to do things in better ways, from daily life to what we think about the meaning things, the significance of change as indicator. Chiron in Pisces works with media and visions. Mercury presses for the data to back it up. Uranus collaborates even if it is one individual alone that stands far above the rest of their tribe. Mercury moves the message of one or many!

Steady in the Light and good luck on your journey.

Full Hunter’s Moon! – Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune, Sextile Saturn, Square Pluto!

Saturday October 15, 9:23 PM Pacific at 23 Aries 14 

Full Hunter's Moon Libra Poetry
From Haiku to a romantic Who-done-it, Libra was born to make beauty! As hunters found food for the winter’s store, Libras hunt relationships to share goods and companionship during the shorter darker days of time to come. Children conceived during this time are born in spring, an auspicious and joyful time to come into the world.

At a Libra Full Moon jot down your ideas quickly or record them as you walk through the park or write them for you lover in a moment of kindness or sweet regard. The Sun in Libra gives his light, the Moon in Aries gives his fiery Spirit leading to yet another adventure! Whether personal or political you will meet new people from afar or of very different backgrounds than your own. You may be well impressed by their point of view and feel a deep and instant gratitude! Opening our hearts and crossing the bridge, making a bridge, can bring lasting and greater prosperity.

Aries may be reactive and warlike, and Libra is the general’s strategist, anticipating the opponent’s moves. But with Uranus in Aries with the Moon, Moon may rather befriend than attack! They both like independence and freedom, so rather than separate, let’s respectfully unite, see each other as worthy contributors to a common cause we may agree on! Jupiter and Mercury in Libra, on the Sun’s side, are more thoughtful. Jupiter may be opinionated, and righteous, but can be appealed to by smart and clever Mercury, also in Libra, to consider collaboration, how opposites and difference can wisely fill needs not previously considered or met. Equality is on the table.

Jupiter and Mercury are engaging Saturn in a sextile. Saturn is still closely square the Moon’s Nodes though this aspect is fading as the Nodes retrograde away. And they are leaving Neptune behind too. Sensitive matters are being reorganized. Saturn has offered consideration of right timing, appropriate responsibilities, the wisdom of experience. Mercury has been thinking things through the last week or so, and seeking a balance of favors, making connections with brilliant partners.

Jupiter comes within a 5 degree range of Saturn Oct 15, this very day of our Full Moon! Many astrologers allow that range. Others, due to this aspect being a sextile only allow a 3 degree range. But if you feel it, it’s active for you! The three degree range starts Nov 2. This aspect is important because though it doesn’t become exact until Aug 27, and then only once, it is continuously close from now until March 6 when Jupiter retrogrades out of the 5 degree range. They don’t get that close again until July 29. They are quite close 3 1/2 months then another month, so a total of 4 1/2 months they travel closely together in the background. It lasts so long because Jupiter retrogrades Feb 5, 2017, moving very slowly. Their closest connection is a 2 day period when Jupiter is at 12.5 minutes of Saturn, very less than a degree December 28 and 29! This is just after Saturn trines Uranus December 24, Christmas Eve, and Jupiter opposes Uranus December 26! Please see the Holiday Four…or should that be Five?!

Jupiter may increase Saturn’s workload. Saturn may be inspired by Jupiter’s far reaching ideas and open a new branch. Business may increase through new partnerships. There may be some sad moments as Saturn realizes what they missed, what has held them back. Forgiveness may be given for mistaken thinking as the truth comes out. Time for healing. Health may get better with age, and respect and recognition given for long term well done work. Jupiter sees the benefits of Saturn’s bedrock solidarity. Your Dharma, your mission this life may be apparent, finally, or a profound step taken in its direction. Might go back to school! You have until the end of next August! Make it count!

Mercury is square Pluto today, and Jupiter doesn’t catch up to square Mars, but it surely does to Pluto, Nov 24, 2016, the first time of three. Mercury may have some things to say that will subtly pin your ears back. Go lightly, just listen, or walk away and think things over before saying something you may regret or they do. It will certainly have effect. Might be just what one of you needed to hear and was overdue to be spoken. Or, it may be a hurtful lie and you have to wait until the truth outs. Stay clean. Don’t make it worse. Document, keep the law on your side. Protect a loved one from harm as possible.

Jupiter square Pluto is a serious financial affair, and a possible illicit relationship. Some people will be have already shifted funds out of high risk ventures and not take them up at this time unless they are seasoned financial investors. Be cautious about forming new business partnerships unless each of you has a stack of favorable personal aspects. Check with your astrologer. Personal relationships formed at this time may have sad outcomes, financially or one of you cheats. You or your current partner may be tempted. Please work things out another way if you can.

On the other hand, Jupiter in Libra may break through a death grip blockage of a long standing Pluto in Capricorn matter no one had any hope for! Jupiter in Libra can wriggle and slither between the gaps, bridge the lacks, and what a surprise, a fabulous new deal is made. In relationships, age and beauty can work it out. Prenups a wise choice. It might be a perfect time to address cultural differences and parental customs and concerns. A lot of talking and getting to know each other may be required for their blessing. And it may take a year or more. Jupiter squares Pluto the second time March 30, and the third time August 4. Really, in family affairs, this is not a long time to wait to make peace about something so important. See your astrologer to plan your marriage date! See More

Jupiter is immanently inconjunct Neptune Oct 23! This first of three will be at 9 Libra 27. Inconjuncts are at either side of oppositions, so they are across but off. Jupiter usually won’t let them lie, and will seek out any adventure to the side. 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. 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. 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! See More!

The poetic Libra partner, the Aries/Uranian Leader and nurturer! Wherever you go, keep a steady fragrant rhythm, sing or whistle some accent moments to let them know you are near! Walk in Beauty. Breathe in that pure essence of the precious life in each of us.

Happy Magical Birthdays, Scorpios!

Scorpio Dark and Light, Hood

Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld, the time of All Saints and Souls, The Day of the Dead. Also, resurrection, the Phoenix rising from its own ashes! There is a time for all seasons.

Observation, keen insights are common craft. There is a timeless pervasiveness. Strengthening comes from the most extreme experiences, racing your motorcycle facing death, having wealth beyond expectation, unfathomable love.

The sweet within, the dark of the unknown, down, down, down, we are curiously walking, feeling our way, until we sit in saturation and become one with it. We may listen to silence, become very still, even monastic. We could drift for a while, come to a cross-road. We may choose to return to the Light, regaining ground, rising, peeking out, seeing with new vision. Entire worlds others know nothing of may exist within us, powering our torch.

Young and lean, the prowess of a panther, or wizened and withered, Scorpio wizard charisma, draws us to them. They can speak of the unspeakable, are unafraid to hear our story, our deepest fears, greatest powers, and we come away healed another degree. We are naked in Spirit, relieved of another layer of blindness, liberated from our own doing. We now realize there are others like us, many others! This true power is core, at our root being. It’s hypnotic by simply being what it is, raw.

Love with these Beings is as no other, volcanic passion. Union is truly the ‘Little Death!’ Ecstasy is an explosion, loss of ordinary consciousness. Love can be so powerful it aches. Once experienced, this potency makes you never want to go back to anything less wonderful. And it wakes you up to the amazing possibilities in all things! Your life is forever changed.

The Psychic Surgeon continues to clear the Soul. Unencumbered it catches every scent. It knows the subtlest forms, nuances of joy and beauty. The earth exudes her exotic ripe richness, the winds whisper messages, fire clears and opens our receivers, water’s touch swirls the mix and covers us with its Magic!

Scorpio has many Voices. Silence is powerful, profound. Meditation takes you to many worlds without moving your feet. You can hear the lizard’s feet as they scamper over the rocks, or on a quiet morning, a crow’s toes as they walk the street. The protective warning hiss of a snake or the growl of a person in pain that really doesn’t want to hurt you but feels cornered. The sound and shadow of eagle feathers overhead or zooming by at stupendous speed startles you more alive. All are signs to live by.

We often say, Steady in the Light. There is a balance. Also be Steady in the Dark. Learn the goodness in shorter days; the earth is resting. Enjoy the dark for her deeper quiet Grace. Love the Ones you can no longer see, but are in a different dimension. Enjoy the stars in the limitless Heavens. Let go of fears of the Unknown; learn how to navigate well wherever you are. Fears can be snap-of-the-fingers remarkably short-lived!


Scorpio 2014 Highlights!  

Our New Moon, Fall Solar Eclipse, is Oct 23, the first day of SCORPIO! Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus and Sun make a four planet Stellium (grouping) in Libra! The 23rd Sun, Venus, then Moon move into Scorpio within hours and minutes of each other, soon to join Saturn already there. What was a Libra Stellium, at 2:10 PM Pacific becomes a four planet Stellium in Scorpio! This New Moon will be the first of Five in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, that are all at ZERO degrees!

Oct 25 Mercury finishes Retrograde, turns direct (forward) Oct 24! Jupiter remains in close square with Saturn through November 30. Full Moon Nov 6 includes Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn Nov 10, square Uranus in Aries Nov 12! 

There are only 2 outer planet events remaining in 2014. Dec 14 brings the sixth, NEXT TO LAST, Uranus square Pluto!  Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely FOR 3 MONTHS, at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015!

The 2nd of the two 2014 outer planet sign changes is Dec 23 when Saturn goes into Sagittarius for the first time in 29 years!

Scorpio, Double, Sun & Ascendant, Stellium, Chloe Sevigny

Nov 18, 1974 Chloë Sevigny, model, icon fashion designer, actress, has her Mercury, Ascendant, Mars, Sun and Venus in Scorpio, a double Scorpio with a four planet Scorpio stellium! Her Venus is sextile Uranus, giving her a wild range of looks, from schoolgirl innocence, schoolmarm to leathers, T-shirt to sophisticate, everything in between! With that and her Mars in her first house, she has succeeded in contemporary independent cinema. Jupiter trine her Mercury/Asc has made her famous but with caveats. It is also square her Neptune, a quiet obscurity, and inconjunct her Pluto (Scorpio’s planet), privacy. She has an unusual quirky little smile, and by many is considered androgynous looking, another Uranian trait, rather undefinable. Scorpio loves a good mystery and, as a sympathizer, the gay community loves her.

Her Sun and Venus together in Scorpio has given her a keen sense of beauty, more than a little seductive charisma, and at times a Birth of Venus ala painter Sandro Botticelli look. It’s uncanny when you look at her images.

She’s quite a woman. In 1994, her personal style attracted the attention of journalist Jay McInerney, who wrote a 7-page article about her for The New Yorker, in which he called a then 19-year-old Sevigny the “coolest girl in the world.” In 2000, she won the VH1 Vogue Fashion Award for best female celebrity style, making her one of the coolest women in the industry! In a 2009 interview she said she was content with the level of stardom she had maintained. She had decided to never be a celebrity at the level where people hunted her, chased her. She said, ‘I think that’s why I’ve chosen to do the work that I do and just kind of work with directors that I love and try to do work that means something to me.’ She walks the fine line between success, and the way she has success, quite well.


Happy Halloween, Samhain!

Libra Beauty Balance Health Deborah Coffey
Sausalito’s Deborah Coffee, Health & Beauty Studio, does a rare and wonderful thing, she customizes her holistic ‘practice of beauty!’

Libra unparalleled beauty of Spirit gets you there. It attracts rich connections, exchanges. Poise, graciousness, putting yourself in the other’s place, gives generosity, enhances and speeds up synchronicity.

Beauty of Body may be as simple as being clean, having a sense of fresh vibrancy. It may be how you carry yourself, a listening awareness, a speaking grace. It could be a gentle helpfulness or a rousing invitation to join and share! Virgo may do perfect puzzles, but Libra puts the pretty on it!

Balance is both horizontal as we think of the scales, and also vertical as all our chakras, energy centers, are humming at equal strength and in peaceful alignment. We don’t fall when we’re tall! What’s good across the table is how tall we stand in our skin. We can admit our wrongs, shortcomings, and goodheartedly listen, learn more, make a difference to the plus side.

Sublime Health is the result of dedicated and passionate care. Blending our exercises so our whole body is engaged gives flow through our entire system, complete accessibility. Athleticism with control – yoga, ballet, ballroom dance, martial arts, maybe Tai Chi. Food balance, not too much of this, too little of that. Sublime health is the payoff of fine tuning, attention to our deviations, and at times to unexpected meanderings, following the threads of magic…person to person. Every Being along our way gifts us with their own unique savvy intelligence. Listen for their intended offering.

Beauty, balance and sublime health start with our first breath. Hold your sweet little one close. Take your baby out into the world. Take moments to make each introduction special. Pay attention to their little person needs. Let them know right away that they are precious to us, they count. Help them stand true to their heart like the fine strong staff between the scales.

With your Sweetheart, learn more about communications. Different teachers have important points of view. Do several! if you lose it, practice until you can do it when times are hot. One teacher says no contempt, criticism, defensiveness or stonewalling, and recommends 5 praise to 1 criticism (if one escapes you)! If you grew up in a family like mine, you didn’t get that example, and it’s hard work to shift your outlook. But it’s doable alchemy and true romance!

Libras are often natural negotiators who can help you. My parents were both Libras, the battling kind, and, oh, they battled well, but unkindly. What we are looking for are Libras who calmly state their case, negotiate, take time outs to think things over, do their research, come back promptly, and, if there is time, agree to wait if there is an impasse. They can be very fair lawyers. Let them represent you when you are too emotional or don’t have the courage or skill to stand for yourself. Watch and learn.

Take a look in the mirror. Watch people’s faces when you meet ~ how are they reacting to how they see you. Let people know what you enjoy about them. Be their mirror and keep it really clean!

Full Moon Libra Symbol Holeman
Daniel B Holeman has 4 planets in Libra! To me, this, his Full Moon rendition, makes me think of the Libra symbol!

NEW MOON!
Tuesday Sep 23 at 11:14 PM Pacific ~ 1 LI 08

See  FULL Hunter’s Moon, Lunar Eclipse

The day after Libra starts, the day after Fall Equinox, the Libra New Moon is on the very day of the second to last aspect of the culminating August/September Jupiter set! It’s the day of Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, running concurrent with, followed two days later by, the Jupiter super trine Uranus Sep 25! See all about that!

This New Moon holds a profound position in the new balance we are seeking. We are hopeful for robust harmony, a kind justice, a fairness for our world community, remembering we are part of an even greater sphere. Yet Libra’s words are War & Peace. May we fight well and honorably. We are models. What we do locally, with each other in our relationships, has more influence than we may realize. Think wider. Stand taller that you may see further, actually touch feet to ground in higher levels.

Inconjuncts lead us slightly off center, disturb the scales. This New Moon is IN the Jupiter inconjunct Chiron! It is in a diversion toward healing, an adjustment of teaching technique, a realigning of points of view with a greater truth forging the way. The wounds may be extreme or exaggerated, more apparent, suffered more profusely. It is clear there are neglected needs, understanding is a prime generator for change. Lots and lots of heart may open gateways to a deeper Spirit untouched before. Go with generosity but gently too.

This New Moon is IN the Jupiter super trine Uranus! This is important because Uranus has been in the very difficult square to Pluto since 2010, and this trine is a magnificently favorable aspect opening an outlet, giving some of the challenge a more fun choice! It is offering opportunities out of the dark! There have been profound changes worldwide politically, financially, and with climate change, and natural disasters one right after another. This trine won’t make it all go away, but it does offer worldwide connections, from simple friendship, travel, to unity of organizations that make key change! It opens possibilities from the smallest links in the chain to sweeping international education. Jupiter is in Leo, the sign of the individual, the Light of the self realized Being. Uranus is the planet of the sign Aquarius, awakened people united in freedom, super intelligence. Though of opposite signs, here they work together well.

In old fashioned every day terms, it is a fame and fortune event!!! Plan gatherings, open your doors. Invite the most fantastic people you can think of!

Libra, is profoundly interested in cultural integration, respect for all, has faith in ambassadors. Leo is the relationship we have with our selves; Libra is the relationships between partners of all kinds; Aquarius is the relationships between people in groups and between groups. This New Moon is key to expediting crucial partnerships so more can happen in a good way. What we say to each other, how considerate we are, listening, are what keep us connecting in ways that keep potential alive. One screw up and a thread is broken or lost. The whole is not quite as vibrant. The shape is skewed. Stopping to have to fix it, if it is fixable, delays every thing, every one. Do your best. Make amends when you can. Keep connected in a good way.

As the New Moon ends a cycle, complete the work you have been doing. As the New Moon begins the next cycle, care well for the seeds of the new connections you are making.

FULL Hunter’s MOON, Lunar ECLIPSE!
Wednesday Oct 8 at 3:51 AM Pacific ~ 15 Aries 05 

Fully visible from Western North America, Alaska and Hawaii
Observers in Eastern North America will only be able to see part of the eclipse before the Moon sets below the horizon.

Our Eclipse links two powerful planetary patterns, during Mercury Retrograde, Jupiter ‘square’ Saturn!!

1)  Moon & Uranus, Venus & Sun, make a FIVE planet T Square, the big red triangle, with Pluto at the point!

It activates the Uranus square Pluto that has challenged the World! Mother Moon, of chaos and lunacy is with Uranus of strange and never-to-be-the-same-again! These in Aries can’t wait to make new beginnings as the Full Moon spreads its wings across the night. In challenge with Pluto, dark is quite dark and the stranger becomes the transformer, possible danger or intrigue afoot. Be ready to let some friends go, let others in. Instant direction changes go with the territory.

Across the wheel, opposite Moon & Uranus, are Venus and Sun together at 10 and 15 degrees Libra. Venus in Libra is super attractive in her second sign (first is Taurus). In the square with Pluto, be careful with your money and favors. Be careful what you ask for. The Sun already squared with Pluto Oct 3rd/4th, and remembers the trick that was in the treat. Though Pluto may have appeared to win, no one ever fully gets away from the scrutiny of the Sun’s profound Light. There are limits to what can be hidden. And sometimes it’s the Light that helps us see the way that saves us. Stand your ground, but it’s not a night to go alone.

2)  Quite differently, the Eclipse axis also completes a Kite pattern! That’s a Grand Trine (blue triangle) with two linked sextiles along one trine (the two linked greens), all classically favorable combinations!

Moon and Uranus make trines to Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo! Trines indicate harmony, flow of action though sometimes they are too easy and lazy, or it’s like a greased wheel out of control, too fast to think! Woops! And this is a Fire Trine! No sleeping dogs here! Aries is a primal motivator. The Moon here is not her usual Suzy Homemaker self! :) Oh no, she isn’t! She’s ready to roll and you better keep up! Jupiter in Leo carries the torch, both to see the way and find romance at any moment! Lucky too, certain they will win against the odds, and likely will! Mars in Sagittarius feels lucky too, and is ready to run the marathon! Too bad trines usually bring in the favorites. Moon and Uranus are in Mar’s sign Aries, so there is a rapport. These are fast responders and quick to take the reins of exploration, new events! Big blue skies and lots of view.

Venus and Sun make sextiles to Mars and Uranus! The Sun is in close midpoint to them, equidistant, 15, 16, 17 degrees!  That’s a fast, brilliantly intelligent combination, super at communicating and making instantaneous connections!

Venus, Sun and Mars are going to be fun to watch. Venus and Sun in Libra are more gentile, the engraved invitation sort, polished, polite. Mars in Sagittarius can be uncouth, clown it up and make you laugh! So casual, eye on the horizon. Not a whit concerned with pleasing anyone. But they do know a phony when they see one and can be blatant truth tellers willing to fight for what’s right. They are genuine in their socks, you know where you stand with them. You see what you get, no game playing, no guessing required. In spite of those annoying differences, this threesome can be super attracted. Libra gets over being too nice; it’s more fun than they’ve had in a long time doing some wild things they’ve secretly always wanted to do! And Mars gets some manners. Surprising what a little finesse will getcha. Cowboy poetry is way cool.

Venus, Sun and Jupiter are so romantic! Venus wants her flowers, Sun wouldn’t mind being waited on. Jupiter in Leo will take you on a little getaway, with lovely views, pretty grounds as far as the eye can see. Impressive. Tempting to pop the question, but don’t do it! Moon/Uranus in Aries is an unstable combination that wants independence and freedom, changes in a wink of the eye! Great for research discoveries! Yet, it could be an unquenchable love at fist sight, elopement, a forever marriage! In business ask for what you want, a LOT of what you want. Good chance you will get it. It’s a generous potential. However, do remember that Venus square Pluto. There will be some kind of a price. Make sure the payback rate is doable if it is a loan, or the return favor is ethical. No selling your Soul. Wait and find another way.

Mars and Jupiter start their 5 degree combo Sep 29, will be exactly trine 1:43 PM Pacific the afternoon of this Oct 8 Eclipse! They can travel far with each other, especially since Mars is in Jupiter’s sign! Jupiter in Leo makes sure the accommodations are first class, but get on with it! Mars is quivering in its boots wanting to see what’s next! Teaching is more like leading, but hey, wait, isn’t that just about the same anyway?! New ways, a new touch, new news, a new big horse, new exercise, new things to learn! Spice! A little folk music, country, foreign flavors! Perfect for touring, promoting, publishing, book signings events! It’s a grand saga, a tale worthy to report! Combine social and sports!

3) The Eclipse is during Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio. I could say, take things with a grain of salt because what’s said will be revised, mind changed. Transformed is another way of saying it. But Scorpio just doesn’t go lightly. They want to know what makes things tick, why you said that, who said what, what it means to you, and your intentions. If there is unfinished business, and very likely there is, don’t expect to simply walk away without question. In fact, though it may take some time and effort, things could get exponentially better if you stay present. Scorpio is a fixed sign, tries to be stable, yet believes in profound healing (change). Retrograde can come back again and again until the repairs are all in place and the job wholly accomplished. To your health and wealth!

4) Jupiter square Saturn is a close traveling square, but never becomes exact because Jupiter retrogrades! The principles are engaged, but don’t consummate. They visit, chat, bandy ideas, but no final conclusion is made, papers not likely to be signed.

This is a complex and rich Eclipse! Enjoy every bit of it! Do something sweet with good friends; dance with your Lover!

STUDENTS! FOR YOUR LEARNING PLEASURE!

Libra, Isis, Angel on Earth

Beautiful image from Moer Foundation

Symbols say so much. Whether Quan Yin or Isis, some say they are Angels on Earth. Look at Isis, goddess of Light, marital harmony, and magic, for our Libra symbol. Wings outstretched, she welcomes all, has compassion for all, equality and balance. The Sun above her head is the Sun symbolized at its set, the rise in the top line of the Libra symbol. The two lines represent ‘As above, so below.’ The partnering of the lower and upper worlds. So we have balance in all directions, side to side among us, below and above, spirit and mind with matter.

Or you can think of the Libra symbol as the scales.  The lower line is the earth the scales are standing on, grounded on this plane, connected in a good way to Mother Earth.  The scales themselves, with the ‘rise’ of the center post, the upper line, with the pans at either side. 

Or you can think of the upper line as representing a person holding the scales.  Their head, the higher consciousness that weighs what we think, is the rise point on the upper line, our arms outstretched holding the pans of life on either side. 

Since Libra, the Fall Equinox, signifies coming into the darker time of our year, resources deep within us, many times the Libra symbol is made with a dark background. Some make the symbol orange or gold to signify the sunset glow, fall, harvest, pumpkins, Halloween – the link between the living and our ancestors! 

Look at the symbols of all the signs to learn more of their beauty.
