Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse, Summer Solstice/Father’s Day June 20/21!!

Saturday June 20 Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse New Moon at 11:41 PM Pacific, 0 Cancer 21! Heads up: The New Moon will be on Sunday the 21st in Mountain, Central and Eastern Zones, on Father’s Day!

Venus Gemini and Mercury Cancer, both in Station, are plowing through the piles of information for what it all means and what to keep!

Cancer 2020 New Moon Canyonlands Cave Milky Way

The cave where the tribe used to meet… The False Kiva archaeological site is located near the Upheaval Dome area of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. By Christopher E Herbert. Finished shooting the Milky Way at 2:00 am before hiking back out with my friend and two other photographers.

This is the second eclipse this season, not visible in the US. Viewing: Partial Eclipse: Africa, southeast Europe, Asia  Annular Eclipse: central Africa, south Asia, China, Pacific. 

We start with the first Cancer new Moon at ZERO degrees, totally fresh! It’s a time for new ways of caring. Cancer is our family at home, our home in the world today. New Moon is seriously engaged with Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn, also at ZERO degrees! Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius, about to return to his own sign. They are askew by angle and Saturn is in an unpredictable sign not always comfortable to Moon, the 27 day planet who tends the hearth fires. Yet she herself changes a lot every 27 days, keeps her fingers on the pulse of the people, so, in a way, there is always something new afoot, and both Cancer and Aquarius are community minded. In AQ Saturn is making required changes to things that were anchors to our ethics, laws, necessities. We have had two ‘pandemics’ to face recently, COVID-19 and the worldwide George Floyd protests.

Cancer is not just your Mom, but our community, our culture. Cancer is the number one sign of business and they are terrific stock traders, sensing the nuances of the mood of the people. They 100% understand commodities, the daily household supplies we all need. They know when we are troubled and bring that casserole over to help us get through it. They wait until we are ready to talk or give us a talking to! Femininity is key. Our matriarchal lineage affects us more than we realize. We are our mother’s children, yet they nurture us, their instinct hoping we will surpass them.

Jupiter’s June 29 retrograde conjunction with Pluto will bring more deaths from both COVID and residual protests. At the same time people are stepping up to heal each other. As with environmental disasters, the playing field is leveled. We come to stand up to a common threat, and when you are drowning, you are glad for help from anyone no matter their skin color. We make new unlikely friendships and allies. These matters open us to interact more widely, get to know each other in different ways. Our new goal is not to restore, but to excel to new levels long overdue. Saturn’s preview in Aquarius sees potential that will cost a lot less. When it retrogrades back into Capricorn July 1, serious work will be done to implement significant changes. 

Both of 2020 Cancer’s New Moons are in Bowl charts.

This Bowl chart is less than 180°, planets spread across 7 signs with grouping and pairings! The first group is Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, the base planets of the Bowl, close with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet. Saturn is now in Aquarius, to retrograde back into Capricorn July 1! He is previewing Aquarius then will return to revamp and solidify Capricorn’s techniques before Saturn’s final entry into Aquarius and prepare for Pluto into Aquarius March 2023! The transition from traditional building to evolutionary humanitarian planetary work is so apparent with pandemic COVID-19 changes and worldwide protests for freedom.

Jupiter with Pluto was first exact April 4. It is now retrograding back to make its second/retrograde conjunction with Pluto June 29. They have been close since March 12, shifting perceptions back and forth, tweaking Capricorn structures, laws, responsibilities, extreme economic twists, environmental and human rights, COVID-19 concerns. There are secrets, revelations, lies and truths, bald faced power jockeying, greed, fear, deaths and saves. Many are seeing the potentials of incredible new options.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it. Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto will continue in their close conjunction through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect of the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference.

With Mercury’s retrograde that started June 17, we are in a week of the double retrograde with Venus until Venus turns forward June 24! Both are in Station! Station is when a planet appears to be standing still in the sky. A Station offers a pause, a focus, deepened perception, emphasis. Venus is in one of Mercury’s signs Gemini. Together they are whirling with thoughts, ideas. The word is getting spread by social media at the speed of light!

Mercury Retrograde is going back to sextile Uranus again. As some say, Friends (Uranus) are the family we choose! Uranus in Taurus is Earth herself, organic. Our Networks are vital to the new works we need to do among our people and for peaceful sustainability. 

Though retrograde, ‘going backward,’ Mercury in Cancer is leading the Bowl chart! This form of leadership gives you pause to consider just how that is done! Sometimes a leader has to take a few steps back, wisely retreat from a position that instinctively doesn’t feel right or the advance has not quite hit the time to move forward. Go back, strengthen your position, double check your information. If things need changing, update your approach tactics. Use that retrograde well. 

Moon is in her own sign! She feels the feelings, her patterns and passages. She is in Sun’s Heart Light, feeling stronger with his support. He in her sign understands her better, sees how important her nurturing is, not just to children and family, but to all of us. She is a model of that unconditional givingness. It’s like a Mother’s caress wherever she goes. Moon will quickly bring her feelings, insights, awareness of cycles to Mercury for his consideration. Sun will meet up with Mercury on the 30th, illuminating Mercury’s thinking processes. Mercury will see what can stand the scrutiny and pass muster. He will be charged with getting the information to all the right places as soon as possible. 

Mercury is conjunct the amazing fixed Star Sirius! This is important because the July 4/5 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse SUN is conjunct Sirius too! What Mercury gleans from Sirius now will be spread widely by the Full Moon, springing from their positive relationship with Uranus, the evolutionary Networker, who unites Humanity for the greatest well being possible! The Sun in Cancer is all for it! Robson say of Mercury conjunct Sirius: ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ Please see more about Sirius in the Full Moon section.

Venus squares Neptune three times during her retrograde cycle. It is a significant aspect because Neptune is activated NINE times during the Venus retrograde cycle! One of the cycle’s most important aspects is the Jupiter conjunct Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter’s RX sextile Neptune! It is July 27, the day of Venus’ last square to Neptune, the day before Venus’ RX cycle ends! It is the goal of the entire cycle! Being an outer planet sextile, it is likely to prevail beyond passing doubts with great promise. But happening three times, those small niggly doubts will be remembered for a while and double checks will be made to be sure progress is better than it was feared it wouldn’t be.

Neptune, in his own sign Pisces, represents a psychic/spiritual dimension beyond average, is the Great Guardian of Spirituality. He is of a very different element, water with no definite form. Gemini, Venus, nor Mercury in Gemini, one of his own signs, are immersed the same way as water, but they are heady in air, logical. Water and air have currents and winds, flow that carries you along their streams, but the view sure is different! At worst Neptune in Pisces is the suffering out of control addict. At best Neptune has empathy, extraordinary visions, does magic and Soul Saving miracles!

Venus is adding her Grace. Neptune hardly notices because he is focused on the intensity of his work. Jupiter in Capricorn sees the special value Neptune offers and give Neptune as much support as possible. Jupiter may publish essential historical documents to record changes and how various decisions were made at any given time. Some of it will be hard despairing news to look at. Some will be hopeful and inspiring as long term changes are finally possible and come true. There will be fumbles and fuming, but Jupiter what is good and best for all. Education will figure in prominently to open people to what could be better ways and show them the benefits. Trust may come quickly or need to be babied along. Do what you can. Keep an open heart; keep empathy handy.

Mars in Pisces recently swam with Neptune, Pisces’ planet, senses the currents, the easiest ways to get where he is going. He is immersing every molecule in the Dream that he may function wholly in its initiation when he gets into Aries, his own sign. In Aries he is the leader, the first responder, consultant, inspires others to take action. If he can do it, they can do it! He will start in Aries June 27 and step up the pace! Mars in Pisces is now leading from behind and within in behalf of the underdog, to help their suffering. He wants us to remember we were once there too. He’s encouraging them to call their formidable talents together to help themselves significantly change this planet.

Mars in Pisces is super sensitive to pivot points that can be used as springboards to areas that need attention to speed progress in a good way. Neptune in his own sign Pisces is a powerful visionary! Music, art, dreams, movies, seeing each other on our cell phones, are all potent ways of seeing, inspiration! Just seeing the sea, ocean sports, ships, seeing the magic of oceanic weather and creatures of the reefs, the depth, not seeing land, gives a broadening perspective that requires a certain faith in the unknowable, unconquerable. We can see further, forever, not know and still continue. Mars can be a silent partner in Pisces, but make no mistake, he is always a leader, even if from behind, no name given. The vision is bigger than any one of us and it will carry itself by its own Spirit!

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are neighboring, only 15 mins apart! June 10 as they made their third from the last semisextile of their 13 yearlong sets of aspects that completes in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

If you use Chiron and Lilith in your interpretations, they make a wild pair. In Aries, Mars’ sign, they have their own power of Leadership. Chiron as healer never promised healing would be easy. In fact, you really have to want to live, to heal and have to step up to the plate. You are not the only person on the planet and at the same time we need you to do your special part. People you don’t even know are counting on you! Lilith says Amen! She can be a tough old bird or a formidable innocent, strong at minimum. She brings women to power that never expected to be there! Some have been so trained to think they aren’t strong it is a shock for them to find out what they can do. What’s even crazier is when they realize they always could have done it!

Cancer is such a deliciously personal sign as well as the sweet neighborhood busybody who looks after everyone.
 
Thank you, Dear Cancers! We are so blessed by you.

Capricorn – Cancer Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse!

Saturday/Sunday July 4 at 9:44 PM Pacific, July 5 Eastern 13 Capricorn/Cancer 38

This is a working Moon activated by the brightest star in the Heavens!

2020 Cancer Mother Moon Woman laying on ground before her

Feeling the July hot Summertime Eclipse, own the night……!

4th of July in Pacific, Mountain and Central, on the 5th in Eastern, but all on the same night! This is the third eclipse this season: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse  Barely perceptible…

Our July Full Moon axis defines a perfect 180° Bowl Chart, Cancer the sign of Bowls! The Full Moon axis is past the Chiron midpoint at 9 Aries. Nevertheless, with Mars now in his own sign activating Chiron, Chiron is still a potent factor in the time frame! Chiron is considered to be the wounded healer/teacher. We learn from our troubles, take a look at our mortality, vow to be a better person and help others, especially children, when we can. Chiron can be great in business, in Aries a leader to new goals and new ways of getting there. Some think Chiron is the number one marriage factor in our charts. Cancer and Capricorn want security, trust and support. Aries is holding the position that your backup Ace is always to be able to support yourself by yourself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The base of the Bowl is Mother Moon in a potent four planet Capricorn Stellium including Jupiter at the same degree as Pluto – just past their June 29 conjunction, and last, Saturn newly returned into his own sign Capricorn July 1! This puts us back into a three outer planet Capricorn stellium until Saturn makes his final entry into Aquarius Dec 16! We are standing in Jupiter/Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter retrograde sextile Neptune July 27 through the third one, October 12, before the Presidential Election. This grouping carries awareness of great responsibilities, takes a hard look at the past, wants a realistic working system. We can learn wisely from the past. Sadly, some we are sorry for. Other we have outgrown, are done with it! Gladly we have hope for building changes together, collaboratively to make important and timely upgrades. Remodeling and sustainability factor strongly. Capricorn is ace at rebuilding better! Some we keep, some we let go and joyfully replace! 
       
Sun in Cancer in its annual conjunction with powerful fixed Star Sirius leads the Bowl, lighting the way. Father Sun in Mother Moon’s Sign is a blend of their energies. Cancer is strengthened, noting where to clear the cobwebs, proud of her successes. She shares her blessings with Sun and his heart expands! Mercury in Cancer is assisting, going back over the ideas that have been deep within, helping to bring them to the surface for updating. Things and people need extra care these days. Sun is generous and Mercury tells the stories that connect us. 

SIRIUS, the Dog Star in the constellation Canis Major is the brightest star in Earth’s Night Sky. The name means “glowing” in Greek. For the Egyptians, Sirius was revered as the Nile Star, or Star of Isis. In mythology the dog Sirius is one of the watchmen, celestial guardians of the Heavens. It is fixed in one place at the bridge of the Milky Way, keeping guard over the abyss into incarnation or in other beliefs, it guarded the dead and guided them to the afterlife. 

  • Space.com:  …the actual Dog Days, or “Canicular” days as they’re known, are defined as the period from July 3 through Aug. 11 when the Dog Star, Sirius, rises in conjunction (or nearly so) with the sun. As a result, the classical Greek and Roman belief was that the combination of the brightest luminary of the day (the sun) and the brightest star of night (Sirius) were responsible for the extreme heat that is experienced during the middle of the northern summer. Other effects, according to the ancients, were droughts, plagues and madness.
     
  • Researcher Elsbeth Ebertin says: ‘Sirius in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. Possibly, the rise in station is made possible by protection from people of influence.’ If you have this Eclipse’s conjunction in good relationship with your chart factors, or have it so in your birth chart, wonderful! See more about it with other factors.

Sun is in Moon’s sign Cancer, warming Cancer’s heart, giving her strength to do all the caring she is want to do, forever and ever. She makes us the best shelter within her means, raises/teaches children – makes sure we get the best education, homeschooling to college, feeds us from body to Spirit, loves us no matter what from sorrows to success! She may be an artist, a skill sharing business person, a community and cultural leader, an advocate for women and children’s rights, volunteering at the local safe house. She makes sure we have good water.

Moon herself is in her opposite sign, Capricorn. She is an excellent community organizer, has an exceptional instinct for business. Capricorn works hard to build what our families and community needs, to gain respect by professional excellence, often has an outstanding reputation. He excels in law and order, dependability. Cancer brings feelings to him, that law is law, humans are human. She shows him how important background is, how to help rather than only categorize and dispense with. Humans need time to learn and time to grow, often to overcome their past. They need to be shown what can be done and how to do it. One who can be costly to us in our communities can become one of our greatest contributors given a chance. Yes, it usually takes time. They are an investment and it is our part to learn how to be an effective teacher, guide.

Venus now direct is semisextile Mercury in Cancer still Retrograde. Mercury is still perusing and turning mental soil about how we feel about the world today and what to do. We have the Virus, civil unrest, environmental discord. Cancer is all about security, nurturing those who suffer for any reason. Our environment is our ultimate home. Taking care of it is a big job. Mercury was sextile Uranus June 5 and 30, will again July 22. Sun also sextiled Uranus the 30th and Moon trined earlier today at 3:19 PM Pacific. Though past, they are all still close, carrying the messages of innovation, humanitarian efforts, the value of networking and philanthropy. Many have new friends, are looking to places in the world family where proven and productive changes have been made.       

Venus never made that sextile with Mars! She turned forward at five Gemini while Mars was still in Pisces and left Mars behind. They have been traveling closely however… They were within 5 degrees of each other when Mars shifted into Aries. July 4 they become 3°, and stay 3° or less through July 21! There is a side by side effect, sharing ideas. Venus gives grace and longing that spurs Mars to action! Venus tells of how heroic Mars is, inspiring people to take his lead!

Venus does sextile Chiron July 10, Mars makes the conjunction to Chiron July 14! In horary astrology this constitutes a connection of all three, Chiron ‘collects’ the light of Venus and Mars. Venus sweetens Chiron’s leadership, enhances his healing and teaching skills with her gracious ways of saying things and brings valued information. She praises him and he takes a greater stride forward! Mars energizes Chiron to stay true to his cause, not be influenced by distractions or payoffs. Mars is a pro at new beginnings and Chiron has to be medically careful with the healing aspect of his work, but new ways are being called for with the Virus, and even with political and police matters. It is important not to be stopped at important junctures of your work or to be ill, injured or disabled yourself. Stay safe and be well. Take care of yourself first that you may serve.

Mercury Rx in Cancer is leaving his July 1 square to Chiron in Aries, retrograding back to square Mars July 8. Mercury shared updated information with Chiron alerting him to current changes in needs and setting new priorities. Cancer is traditional, but a sign quick to make sensible adjustments. Aries can be so full of straight ahead fire that you have to get his attention first, quickly impart your three liner to-the-point info then see how that goes. If needed, check in again to be sure the whole thing got taken in. If it is an emergency, do your best, but be big about it! Mercury will make the third square to Chiron July 21 the day after the second New Moon in Cancer! By then there will be more news to share. Stay progressive.

Mercury in Cancer can seem like drip to Aries who can quickly dodge raindrops, and there could be some heated words. Ask if there is a better time to talk. Even if there is disagreement and a seeming blow off, know that Mars in Aries is hella fast at taking things in, possibly especially if they make him feel to fight, LOL! He loves challenges! So don’t be surprised if you find him doing what you asked when you thought he didn’t hear! Give it a little time… Caring communications, checking in are essential.

Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs less than a degree apart! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10 & 11, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent 13 year aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto are still in close connection since their second conjunction June 29 and will be on through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect leading up to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference. Team up with people who are making a difference. Learn from them.

Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is the most powerful aspect of 2020 after the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Saturn and Capricorn have brought the wrecking ball. Pluto brought the Virus and Jupiter is prejudice, but also outing the truth of the violence of racial injustice. Pluto in Capricorn is the Police, both good and bad, and hired killers. Jupiter often exaggerates conditions in initial situations not much is known about. We keep learning as different perspectives are considered. In Capricorn historical situations and what other governments have done can be profitably compared. Tradition is being reassessed. Old icons are tumbled. Jupiter looks for what works better at less cost. Sustainability is a strong factor now due to environmental concerns. Time to make a clean sweep and build much, much better.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it. Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter RX sextile Neptune Jupiter’s companion aspect to its conjunction with Pluto soothes the waters, yet keeps the dream alive! Jupiter is publishing and that’s the video, Neptune, of George Floyd, a clearly suffering (Neptune) human at the unkindness of bullies. Jupiter can be bullies – opinionated, condescending and prejudiced. A sextile represents an opportunity. Jupiter also wants the truth and Neptune is what’s hidden. Though a very sad circumstance, Mr Floyd becoming a martyr at the cost of his life, good will come from this man giving his life. Neptune is Spirit. Jupiter is Justice. It’s about time for some Spiritual Justice. Worldwide people are rising. Jupiter is retrograding back to meet Neptune again July 27 and will be in close continuous connection through the third aspect Oct 12. This isn’t over yet. And it all will affect the elections. Do your part. Be kind. Above all, help your mates to register and VOTE.

Seek visionary thinkers with sensible long term plans! We can do this!

Capricorn – Cancer Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse Astrology Chart!

Cancer 2020 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse 4th of July

SECOND Cancer New Moon! 

Monday July 20 at 10:33 AM Pacific 28 Cancer 27

Hard work is showing rewards, Venus/Mercury are moving forward, time to move on!

Cancer 2020 Second New Moon Double Moons, Majestic Mountains Clouds!

Some call it a Double New Moon. If there are two New Moons in a month the second is called a Black Moon. Maybe this too, in the same sign, could be called a Black Moon?

We started with the first new Moon at ZERO degrees, totally fresh! It was seriously engaged with Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn. Saturn was retrograde at ZERO degrees Aquarius, about to return to Capricorn, his own sign. They were askew by angle and Saturn was in an unpredictable sign not always comfortable to Moon, the 27 day planet who tends the hearth fires. Yet she herself changes a lot every 27 days, so, in a way, always something new afoot, and both Cancer and Aquarius are community minded.

This second Cancer New Moon is at 28°, very close to the end of Cancer, experienced. Moon and Sun are imminently exactly opposite Saturn now IN his own sign at 28° Capricorn! Moon is in her own sign, so both are potently in their places of power. Cancer is not always considered a ‘powerful’ sign, but personally I wouldn’t mess with her. She can call the tribe and all her ancestors! Sun is right there with her, and he is the Man! Cancer is food, home and family while Capricorn works in the world, provides protection and shelter. He carries the law while Cancer nurtures with feelings. He makes her aware of their responsibilities, the need for children to grow up successfully. Cancer makes him know how people/children are different, have different timing than his. Both are excellent at business. Cap is a hard worker, takes care of necessities. Cancer broods, at times like a broody hen maybe, but has her finger on the pulse of the people! She knows what people need, and when they will want it, the best emphasis for business.  

With Saturn back in his sign Capricorn we again have a 3 Outer Planet Stellium! Jupiter/Pluto are still at the Bowl chart base, still close after their June 29 retrograde conjunction. Saturn will remain in Capricorn until his final change into Aquarius Dec 16. For the moment, all three are retrograde, but Saturn is now within 5° of Pluto putting all three in working distance of each other. Saturn goes back to 25°, traveling closely within 3° of Pluto until they turn forward. Saturn turns Sep 28/29; Pluto turns Oct 4. Saturn travels more quickly and soon leaves Pluto behind. Jupiter, however, has already turned Sep 12 at 17° and quickly catches up with Pluto for their final Nov 12 conjunction! While together the threesome have many similar ideas but tend to work toward them separately until Pluto and Jupiter get close. Then there is a perhaps a surprising merger, unexpected funding tips the scales. Whatever it is, Jupiter will make it famous. It can be very bad or very good, likely both. 

Important matters will continue to include what’s already on the table: learning, careers, healing/vaccine, free speech, laws and enforcement, justice, human rights, sexuality and gender, money and defunding or funding, boycotting harmful people or businesses, finding new ways to long held matters that have needed changing. Please be kind to each other and do what you can in a good way. Step up to the plate. Sometimes we marvel that such a simple solution wasn’t seen before. Just takes one person to say it, but it might have taken a lot of ideas to make that one finally pop up! 

Another Bowl chart!

New Moon, Moon in her own sign Cancer are leading! Mercury is with them in Cancer following along behind, acting as the sweep. His duty is to help other followers, keep the trail clean behind them. There may be joiners that want to know what’s happening and what they can do. Mercury is logical and credible, while in Cancer more personally concerned, combines thoughts and feelings making nurturing connections. The newcomers join in. They become a family of a kind. 

Mercury and Venus are both now moving forward after their double retrograde June 17 to 24. They complete their entire retrograde cycles July 25 and 28 with the Jupiter RX Sextile Neptune, Venus square Neptune right between them on the 27th! Mercury and Venus retrograde sorted and sifted, thought and talked, smelled the roses and baked bread. So much has changed we are all adjusting and it isn’t done. But they moving forward are putting their ideas into action, exploring new ground in today’s world. Working together is comforting and we can all contribute in our own special way. New alliances are being made as we find certain people want more of the same things we want than what we knew about them before. Circumstances have leveled the playing field and we have the blessing of more mutual goals.  

Jupiter RX Sextile Neptune and Venus square Neptune are making the vision of major planetary changes apparent to many. It will be how we treat our Earth and her beings, including each other. Jupiter wants the whole TRUTH, draws deep from Neptune’s dreams, the fathomless well of Spirit. There are lies, scams, prejudice, judgments, but many will be revealed. Jupiter ultimately wants the long term best for all. This is a time to teach through parables. We can’t all be there, but a well told story makes us feel like we are. Venus is questioning the dream, picks out what she deems worthy. She knows how to ‘dress up’ ideas that at first may appear unpalatable or impossible. She gleans important points that many overlook. That’s one of her special graces. She gets to know people through her appreciation of them and so much more is revealed. Even if you don’t understand, you can appreciate someone’s effort. See also the Full Moon’s last paragraph above.

As with the Full Moon, though still close, Venus never made that sextile with Mars! She turned forward at five Gemini while Mars was still in Pisces and left Mars behind. They have been traveling closely however… They were within 5 degrees of each other when Mars shifted into Aries. July 4th they became within 3°, and stay 3° or less through July 21! They exchanged glances, there was a side by side effect, sharing ideas, but they didn’t collaborate. Venus gives grace and spurs Mars to action! Venus tells of how heroic Mars is, inspiring people to take his lead! Mars liked her, so he is sad to see her go even though he’s very independent.

Mercury does square Mars now and exactly on the Jupiter sextile Neptune the 27th. Mars is now in his own sign Aries! Impatience is likely. Mercury may be going about grumbling under his breath. He tries to be nurturing in Cancer, but Mars may be too pushy or too personal too quick. Mars may prod relentlessly, noisily. He wants new now, but Cancer is traditional. My Mother always did it that way. He likely means well, but Cancer is a more tender sort. She may be looking for security and she intuitively knows he can be gone in a minute to an enticing new opportunity. Mercury may be a little confused at some news and not in the mood, tired and worried, yet has to deal with events as they come. There could be an accident, an upset tummy. Mars just wants to get going! He thinks Cancers just need to make up their mind and get over it! Well, that could be true, but there is a human in there doing the best they can. Take it easy – you don’t want to have words. If you push too hard you may lose their friendship forever.

So Mercury, get your rest, talk when you feel up to par. Mars, just know everyone isn’t like you. You are terrific, but we are all here together. If you are saving a life, then do what you do. Mercury, appreciate what a leader this person is. Hear them out, then per the time frame available, let them know where you stand. Your intuition will serve you precisely for the circumstances at that time. Things can change later. You can too if that’s your choice. Mars, keep standing tall and proud! We couldn’t do it without you!

Mercury is about to sextile Uranus and square Chiron for the third of three times! Sextile Uranus is good connections with friends, such great strange but genius ideas! Good Sci Fi! Square Chiron, it may not sell right away, if ever. Oh well, it was fun. Or, unapologetically write it and keep writing. Get past the business hurdles. Save and keep each version as you go. What doesn’t fit here may be the lead for a second episode, be part of a series, or stand well alone on its own! Give it some time. Work out any publishing problems. The retrogrades undoubtedly brought some new options! Check in with friends, face your business/employment/financial security matters. Check in with proven advisors. Develop a more sustainable outlook about your future. The world is changing as we speak. Some old ways are being rooted out, some new ones are having growing pains. Goes with the territory. Smart networking makes a huge difference. We can put our heads together ~ as they say, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts!

The continuing Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs less than a degree apart! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10 & 11, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent 13 year aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

This concludes the Saga of the Three Cancer 2020 Lunar Events! Read them carefully, note their differences and the underlying ongoing aspects they ride on. Set your long term goals, then fill in with the steps you will be taking to complete or sustain your Mission.  

Good luck, be safe and be well. Thank you for your good work.

Taurus 2020 Balcony Italian Woman Accordion Singing C-19

Venus is love and affection; Gemini is Communications. Italians have made world news during Covid-19 singing and making music from their balconies. Some are known performers, making beauty for all! Bless them, how prezioso. Grazie from all of us in the world! We send our love to you. Volare from the balconies! 

► During Cancer: June 24 the Double Rx ends with Venus turning forward! 6.29 Jupiter Rx conjuncts Pluto. 7.1 Saturn back into his sign Capricorn during Mercury Rx.

► 5.20.20 Update: May is the 2nd month of the Double Retrograde process, June coming right along. Stay tuned in and use it deliberately. Stay on your long term purpose.

At this time, our communications mean so much. We wish it could be in person hugs, but we wait and find other ways to make our feelings clear by respecting distance – now another form of communication.

Venus, besides being in Gemini, is the planet of two signs, Taurus and Libra. Taurus says these are inalienable organic rights. Venus is blessed with clever in Libra and may be the attorney who stands up for those rights. Venus presents with beauty and dignity, shows the attractiveness and value, the wealth, common respect for all.

Venus in Gemini started her Retrograde CYCLE April 9 and doesn’t complete the entire cycle until July 28, so most of her process will be during the Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. She will be finding grace in communications. Jupiter wants Truth while Pluto opts for privacy. There will be some challenging delicate moments. Venus loving kindness will make all the difference.

Mother’s Day experiences happen during the Venus Rx Station – the time Venus appears to be standing still in the sky. Our Mother Love will be reassessed in view of C-19 experiences. How have we done as Mothers, children? Will we connect in a more meaningful way? What will make us all, men and women, be better spiritual Mother’s to our planet?

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is when a planet literally appears to stand still in the sky at the retrograde and direct turning points. Mercury has four days before and four days after the turns. Venus takes a bit longer and the number of days varies. Stations help us slow down. They are a pause when we are able to be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. The longer the station the more its strength.

Venus covers 5 to 21 Gemini 50 retrograde May 12 to June 24. Her 12 day 1° Rx station at 20/21 Gemini is from May 5 to 19. Her 16 day 1° Direct station at 5/6 Gemini is from June 16 to July 1.

Mercury covers 5 to 14 Cancer retrograde June 17 to July 12. His 8 day Rx station at 14 Cancer is June 14 to 21. His 8 day Direct station is at 5 Cancer from July 8 to 15.

If you have factors in your chart at or very close to those degrees, you will be activated, especially at the station degrees. Check in with your astrologer if you have significant plans at those times.

Plan ahead for what you want to be done, as much as possible, well before those times. Gemini is communications, speaking venues, scheduling, gear needed for that, phones, computers. Take care of your hands, lungs and breath. Cancer is business matters, your community, things at home especially in the kitchen and sleeping quarters, relationships with women and children, take care of your cat and your breasts/stomach. Get images you need, take care of your photography/albums.

Double Retrograde! This Venus Rx is especially important and complex for two reasons! 1) Because Mercury has an entire Retrograde cycle concurrently WITHIN the Venus Rx cycle! They will both be Rx together from June 17 to 24! Mercury Mind and Venus Matter will be atwiggle! 2) The brew will be especially stirred because Venus is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! Mercury has ideas by the zillions on any normal day. But Venus wants to know what they are worth and who said so!

Plus, there are THREE important planetary events during and following the Venus/Mercury retrograde! 

Most important are any major outer planet combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Venus or Mercury make during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, indicate part of its purpose. Venus and Mercury help prepare us for planetary aspects that follow, whether the aspects are in the sky or in your personal chart. And, of course, the connections Venus and Mercury make, or don’t, with your chart factor in personally! See your astrologer if you need help with this!

1. The first is the ongoing Jupiter conjunct Pluto. This Venus Retrograde cycle is wholly concurrent with that period! The second exact Jupiter conjunct Pluto is June 29 just after Venus turns Direct June 24. As we have already seen, the conjunction can make you millions or make a huge mistake and lose a few. It can exaggerate your difficult condition or expand a good thing beyond your wildest dreams! It can be sadly obsessive, exceptionally cruel, or a healer with the most extraordinary abilities comes your way. In the US the particular importance of this aspect will be at the US Presidential Elections November 3. Its third aspect, the mature aspect, will be Nov 12 just after the election, in other words, THE aspect of the Elections, exactly at the same degree and sign as the recent Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto!

The April 4 Jupiter conjunct Pluto was the aspect being felt at the end of the Feb/March Mercury Rx cycle. Now it is the trigger aspect starting at the beginning of the Venus Retrograde Cycle! It will be what we are thinking about throughout the Venus/Mercury retrogrades!

Venus in Gemini is blessed and skilled at communication. Leaving no stone unturned, she will access diverse sources, gather information, reassess the value of what she learns as an entirety. Like with Mercury, Gemini’s planet, we have a good chance of learning a lot. Mercury in Cancer literally looks at the underbelly, what people -especially women – feel, what they need, how they sit in our community, how our culture is doing. What kind of history are we making? Recovery is not enough. They want more and what is best for our and our children’s future.

2. Jupiter Sextile Neptune  June 13 Jupiter Rx in Capricorn is back to 5° sextile Neptune in Pisces. July 1 it is back to 3°, getting closer and closer until the conjunction July 27. This is a super magical aspect riding in the background. Jupiter is judge; Capricorn is spiritual law. Neptune in Pisces is the visionary business of all. Many of us are rethinking what is really important, what we would like to renovate, what to build for a more sustainable future. We are more aware of Planetary kinship, a spiritual consensus more important than government, power and profits alone. Jupiter sees the extraordinary potential, can map it out in realistic terms and Capricorn has the expertise to make it so! True Believers unite!

Jupiter makes its 2nd and 3rd aspects July 27 and Oct 12. The day Jupiter makes that second July 27 aspect is right between the very last days of the Mercury and Venus Rx cycles July 25 and 28. Mercury in Cancer, Capricorn’s opposite, has been watching keenly, feeling the progress – lacks and successes. Mercury, so aware of the importance of Neptune’s insights and visions, spreads the word of the upcoming possibilities. The information and insights Mercury and Venus glean will be passed on to the Jupiter/Neptune archives for up leveling. From then on, Jupiter and Neptune stay close to 2 degrees or less until the third and last aspect Oct 12, so the aspect is virtually continuous for that period and a little before and after. The third Jupiter/Neptune aspect is at 18 Capricorn 45, conjunct the important Oct 30 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic degree! In turn, the Oct 12 2020 aspect is the closest preceding aspect to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. What Mercury and Venus learn now is significant because it will be telegraphed right down the line. Pay attention and don’t forget. Make notes, document, review at future times.

3. While Saturn is in Aquarius it squares Uranus in Taurus from 5° or less starting from the March 21 entry time until May 1. At that point Saturn slows to retrograde while Uranus continues forward. It doesn’t make the three actual squares until 2021! Saturn puts the brakes on change that is too rapid or not natural. He stopped the airlines due to the pandemic, is limiting friendships and networks, looking for better long term ways to build our new future!  

July 1 Saturn Rx leaves Aquarius, goes back into his own sign Capricorn! The entire first part and the retrograde part of the Venus Rx cycle are entirely during Saturn in Aquarius. Just six days after Venus turns direct, Saturn goes back into Capricorn to rebuild now that there are new specs. Mercury is still Rx at that time, so still has questions, like ‘How is this shift going to work out?’ Mercury in Cancer has practically photographic memory, so easily digs back to see what differences occur. It can see what failed and how it failed and guide us to help prevent that happening again.  Saturn in Aquarius   Saturn in Capricorn

Saturn’s sign change has more significance than at first glance. In Aquarius it starts a long chain of Aquarian/Uranian aspects through Feb 2022. Saturn remains in Aquarius until March 7 2023, just days before Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius March 23, 2023! In AQ it prepares us for Pluto’s sign change!

Venus retrograde cycles are longer than Mercury’s, so we are traversing a 4 months period. 

Venus makes two repeated planetary aspects during its retrograde cycle, April 9 to July 28. Three times each it sextiles Chiron and squares Neptune. With Chiron favorably, communications are good for healing, business and marriage depending on how it fits with your personal chart. The squares with Neptune aren’t sure. There could be mix ups, lost papers or people. It could bring broken dreams, encounters with addiction, or more kindness than you have ever seen or known. Venus in Gemini can have so much data that it doesn’t settle well at first, is overwhelming, or Venus seems selfish or glib. Relationships are reevaluated. Sources of income will change.

Everyone calm down, talk about it, go away and think about it, come back to it. Probably good to wait until both retrogrades are well over. See how things are after the dust settles. Most astrologers wouldn’t suggest marrying with both of these particular planets retrograde. Mercury is contracts; Venus is love and regard. Not good to be changing your mind on that one after the contract is made. It’s good if you have a revelation and save yourself from yourself before the contract is made! Business can be tweaked or just let go. Healing can bring reform and change that keeps changing, hopefully for the better. It is not a spiritual problem if you disengage from that particular healer or healing modality, teacher. Learning never stops.

Eight aspects are made to Chiron in Aries, good with Venus, some challenging, some inspiring and empowering! Look into new ways of teaching and healing, doing business that has never been done before. Scout things during the retrogrades. If you still feel the same way after the retrogrades, see if anyone would like to partner up and give it a go! There will be many opportunities!

Nine aspects are being made to Neptune in its own sign Pisces! Some will be challenges, others will get Neptune up and going walkabout, but the big one is the July 27 Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, powerful good fortune and focus, sextile Neptune of dreams and visions to come true! Jupiter retrograde has come back to see how things are doing, what has changed, what can make it better than was thought before. Jupiter will tweak a few things. It won’t be entirely finished, but will be put back on track, centered for the future on or about Oct 12. Get on it! Believe!

Between Mercury, Venus, Sun and Mars, half the signs will be being covered, from Aquarius to Leo! You can follow them per planet along the Timeline. 

In the Feb/March Mercury Rx it sextiled Uranus from Pisces to Taurus expressing its dreams that Taurus could be alert to secure them. This time Mercury sextiles from Cancer back to Taurus. Uranus in Taurus likes to take sensible chances and often surprises us with how well it works though we thought it was a long shot. Cancer is a good trader, senses the mood of the people, knows when things are hot and cold, whether they feel safe or not. It instinctively assesses a person’s capability. Cancer is a great business sign, especially for families and women, working at home or with items for our homes. They are aware of seasonal changes, the tides of time. We are now ripe for innovative planetary wide new businesses. Cancer likes to Mother, so will love helping get new startups going! Those that focus on community, sustainability will go the furthest. Though Cancer can be old fashioned, when they make up their mind to change, it happens quickly! Solid new Uranian friends will speed things along fluidly! 

FIXED STARS

Venus with Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47. Robson gives a mixed review of Aldebaran. ‘It gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. With Venus: Honor through literature, music or art, creative abilities, favorable for health and marriage.’

Venus with Rigel at 16 Gemini 50. Robson gives a more favorable account than his usual: ‘It gives benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability.’ With Venus: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female.’

Mercury makes its Retrograde Station at 14 Cancer 45, conjunct the powerful Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! The planetary turns in the retrograde cycles are important because they appear to be standing still for many days from the point of view of Earth. Mercury stations are 8 days, 4 before, 4 after. There is steeping, focus, incorporating and stabilizing what’s deemed to be a keeper. Sirius, the Dog-star, is the brightest star in the night sky, called the Prince of Princes! Robson says the Mercury/Sirius combination can bring ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ UK astrologer Deborah Houlding says ‘…with its quick reaction, high energy and impetuous nature, in many respects fits the profile of ‘the puppy’, one of the titles by which it was traditionally known.’ At another level, Michael, the Archangel of the powerful First Ray, a brilliant blue, is associated with Sirius.

Aldebaran and Sirius are both Behenian fixed stars. Aldebaran is associated with Mars and VENUS. Sirius is with Jupiter, fame and fortune! Per Wiki: The Behenian fixed Stars are in a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Their name derives from Arabic bahman, “root,” as each was considered a source of astrological power for one or more planets.

Mercury Retrograde DNA!

About Retrogrades!  

Retrogrades are fascinatingly complex! The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, that a planet appears to go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three times, and if outer planets sometimes five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde planet is going ‘backward’ over the same area, they are ALL going forward, even the retrograde planet! It’s illogical, but that’s what happens. Venus retrogrades about every 19 months for only about 40 days. Only 7–8% of the population has it in their natal chart. Mercury retrogrades 3 times a year, every 6 years 4 times. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 18% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! Mars retrogrades every 25/26 months for 60-80 days.

The good part is where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They go back, keep up, update! The type of special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart and what type of connections are made. Check out the planets of your own chart and charts of babies born during retrogrades!

Venus makes beauty wherever she goes, whenever possible. She loves her possessions whether lovely things or sweet people. Venus is gifted with social skills, to cross boundaries of different cultures, faiths, skin color, genders, sexuality, financial standing, eccentricity. Sometimes she has low self esteem, out of fear can be selfish. Usually she is kindly and giving. Balance is best. She’s often exceptionally attractive and in love with love. Charm.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Every Retrograde is unique by sign and where it happens in your chart! As time goes on the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. Retrogrades, like any other astro phenomena, evolve.

What a journey! If you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. Maybe what’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward turns, like retrograde, give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward bends like turning forward/Direct, extend our vision of potentials. This pair, being with air and water, shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn, that Station, gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations have room to occur, new ideas are teased into action! Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers about issues of the sign(s) Mercury is retrograde in! Or, do everything to make it possible so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers who can get it done no matter what. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved.

This VENUS Retrograde is in GEMINI, Mercury’s sign, so it will be a lot like Mercury Retrograde. Venus flavoring Gemini will bring a longing for poetic exchanges, a genteel sharing. Venus loves touch and in Gemini signs up for a massage series (with your mask on, of course). Pretty up! Make up, clothes, add some new colors! Your posture, demeanor. Some voice training? Look like what you want to become to be! Gemini may try on a few roles, so give it some time to feel it. Is it what you really want or is it a step in the right direction? Write a few stories, make up a new resume, a fantastic name for your new business, advertise about what’s new. Let it change, morph, come by happenstance. Follow what’s in your spirit! Talk with your neighbors and sibs! Extend the loop to Soul Brothers and Sisters, kindred beings.

Our values, Venus, are significantly changing. Many are spending time at home, rethinking their choices in view of what’s deeply important from the context of life and death. Many are wanting to make their life count, to heal the planet to be a better place for our loved ones, children, young people, elders. Venus retrograde in Gemini will look at many facets as it considers all the angles. It may seem selfish to dwell on oneself so, but Gemini knows we all breathe the same air and we are all spiritually connected. In a sense, are all One. Each of our personal choices affects the web of life of all.

Wait on cosmetic body work or on starting long term dental work. Wait on redecorating, buying a new wardrobe, changing your company logo. You may decide to postpone Engagements and Marriages. It may be wise to wait until things have cleared a bit after the virus and the new economics many are facing. Many new businesses will be starting! Or it may be a special time to preciously hold each other to our hearts and together help each other through this difficult time into amazing new beginnings.

Clearly life doesn’t stop during retrogrades, and not all people’s charts are connected to all retrogrades. If your chart is connected to any given one, you will need to do your best and what you can. You can’t explain this to all people, maybe not your boss or even a good friend. Astrology? You’re nuts! Ok so there are times to find ways to stall or not connect, delay. You can estimate the possibilities of others not bringing certain papers to the meeting and bring them yourself, save the day! You can ask for a review of the current decisions 4 days or more after Mercury goes Direct/forward. If there are important must do meetings, Dr’s appts, call in advance to verify that the date and right time are on their calendars or yours! C-19 has changed a lot of longstanding appts. Don’t be surprised if the part didn’t come for your vehicle repair. Verify it is ordered, being sent to the correct address, the expected arrival date!

Document your work and events daily, save ALL emails and backup safely off the premises. No giving your passwords to anyone. If all goes well, fine. If not, all the pertinent information you need is available.

If you have other favorable prevailing aspects, especially with outer planets, then it is likely changes will ultimately be to your benefit. Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Be of good cheer, Things are going to be ok! Tutto Andra Bene!

Tutto Andra Bene. Everything will be OK.

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.

Gemini 2019 Celestial HighLights

The Magic of Multidimensional Gemini!

Gemini the Web of Souls in Communication

Gemini: The Web of Souls in Communion 

Stream of Consciousness. Seeing with the Third Eye. Connections a mile a minute! It can be chatter or natter or lead you to a place you forgot you were going to and all of a sudden you are there! There are diversions, excursions, conversions and reformations at the unknown destination that becomes what it all started for. The loops are better than an entire carnival of rides all while you are standing in the same place! In the fastest synapses you’ve traveled 1000s of miles, through centuries of adventure, at no cost but a bit of your time and attention. You may be confused, dazzled, delighted all at once. Ah, now you get it – you too are experiencing Multidimensionality! In Gemini’s company you have a symbolic ‘seeing eye guide dog.’ What they see, you see. With Gemini it is like living several lifetimes in one, sometimes as if in more than one person, in the treasured dualities of Earth and Heaven! The more they talk, the more you see.

Profound silent listening. There are so many extraordinary ways to be entertained. People watching. Humans are fascinating. A trifecta of talent. Gotta see how that was done. Information so well delivered on such an important topic you are enthralled and want to sign up! A heartfelt demonstration of faith and courage, or an instant lifesaving response that leaves you overwhelmed with gratitude and humility. Geminis have listening ears that give them the tonal quality of what’s happening and they give it the keenest attention. Later they share it well, in detailed accuracy right down to the feelings and mannerisms of the participants. For a few minutes you become one with the experience as if it happened to you!

Mimic and Mime. You can see yourself. To be recognized by such a quick intelligence is to know your valued place among us. Gemini’s rendition of us may be funny, a caricature, respectfully honorable, or an unquestionable portrayal. They can do various renditions of facets of how various people may see, yet all be of the same person! It makes us be more self aware, think of what we show, how we carry ourselves, whether we are succeeding in becoming the person we hoped to be. When we see it done of someone else, we become aware of how much more there is of them than we realized. Or we see that person as they truly are. Sometimes we stand corrected, are more appreciative of them. One way or another, we are illuminated, be it our self or them.

Adaptational. A morph a minute. Gemini responds like air blowing across a field of grass! There is a sway with the dance of the breeze. There are moments of upright stillness. Warm sun on our face, clearheaded. Sometimes you can almost watch the movie by watching Gemini’s face change! You can often tell when a change is coming. They ‘read’ things very quickly and go with the flow. They are intelligent and clever, adapt quickly to whole sets of ideas at once. They adjust the parts and pieces, and, behold, a whole new working order! You may have to guard against distractions…

The Breath of Life – deeply drinking a breath, a sigh, a gasp! The sound of your voice, soothing to inspirational. The runner cruising at a comfortable pace, or breathing with all their might, first to the finish line! The friction of a raspy curse. The exhilaration of a change of heart. The tingle of a fright! Gemini is vivid with boundless expression! They make us feel alive even when we disagree or are dying, LOL! How dare them! But we thank God for their wanton wandering, laughing for no reason, their stunning perceptions, the symbols they evoke and invoke!

A Touch of the Heart. Words or hands, a healer. Words can be a kick in the buns that translates to ‘I know you can do this, I love you, get going!’ A lover caressing you with their sensuous touch, electric. A healer doing laying on of hands without even touching you, simply an energy in person or from far away. A quizzical invitation, an expression that sweeps you into a new realm, keen for the latest encounters! If you are a baby, it may be blowing bubbles, motorboat, on your little tummy. If you are old, in the cradle of transition, it can be someone gently holding your hand, looking lovingly into your eyes, the last connection you ever feel.

Though so fantastically different we are all the same. We just express ourselves uniquely, parts of a grand interwoven pattern of the Universe. We are forever bonded with each other in spiritual Union. When the chain is broken we all feel it, know it, somehow. We feel that loss. We instinctively try to close the gap, reestablish the flow, improve the exchange. Miracles happen in the stratosphere as new consciousness is embraced.

Offhand, I’d say you get your money’s worth! Gemini uses all forms of communications possible in every magical moment! And, well, for no charge at all, one thing leads to another…

Be Blessed and Gifted.

Gemini 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Astronomy 6.16.19 Gemini Strawberry Moon Jupiter Antares

June 16 to 18 Full Strawberry Moon with Jupiter, Antares, then Saturn!

On both June 16 and 17, 2019, the moon will appear full to the eye as it shines close to the king planet Jupiter all night long. The crest of the moon’s full phase comes at a specific instant, though – the instant the moon and sun are most opposite each other on our sky’s dome for this month – and that moment happens on June 17, 2019, at 1:31AM Pacific. For the most of us in the North America, that means the moon turns full in the wee hours before sunrise on Monday, June 17.

JUNE 10 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. Happy viewing and have fun!

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky!

Gemini Overview of Year to Come!

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

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all Rx, retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven, Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions are taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Gemini, the sensitive inquisitor, is curious about the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn. Gemini will document the shift, how it’s effects feather out among us. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown! 

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the on average 34 year exact conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it

After Saturn conjunct Pluto, April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. Whatever demons or glory, tragedies or triumphs formidable Saturn shall have faced, Jupiter will optimistically pick up the pieces, repurpose. Pluto will see the promise of profit financially and spiritually. It will be an explosion of clearing for future works, secrets discovered, major funding attained, ‘keepsakes’ will be in the plans to be built ~ like a mini renaissance. Bad will be healed, the rest is hallelujah! LOTS of big news! Super power plays will abound as the Nov 3 Presidential Election approaches.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs up to Dec 2, 2019! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Gemini’s coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, 2020! See more about Chiron/Uranus

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.

Outer Planet Transits with Gemini 2019 – May 2020!

Gemini Word News Media Credibility

Gemini is a Vital Sign! Gemini gets the Word going. Accuracy, ethics, interests of the Heart, our futures, are all lived by what we know. Geminis are leaders of their times, day by day taking us along with them, weaving our thoughts into a fine and clever life, helping us dodge bullets! We so need them in these critical times of climate and political adjustments.

OUTER PLANETS WITH GEMINI

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus orbits at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years, are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto is moving from 20 to 25 Capricorn during Gemini’s year to come. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto in Cap can seem like a shadow to Gemini, put a fear in the mix that dampens the dance. Gemini is usually fairly neutral, just gathers the facts. But Pluto has secrets and Capricorn is their guardian – no trespassing. Makes Gemini all the more curious. But, do be careful. This might be the time to leave the Dragon alone. He can smell you, knows you are there. What Gemini does find out may never make the news, for several reasons. And maybe that’s the right of it all. Not everything should be public. There is a timeliness that may not have arrived yet. Better later, sometimes never. Pluto in Capricorn also sees certain finalities and imbues Gemini with some ideas that are uncomfortable, but it is time for the Truth to out, to build a new outcome. Pluto may end up protecting Gemini! Pluto’s business ideas may change Gemini’s life, give early retirement, and even a wealthy life. Listen well, consider having collaborators. With some adjustments, could be remarkable results! Good luck.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last sign, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Gemini may at times find Neptune impossible to fathom. Neptune may tell dream story illustrations that are symbolic. He may show feelings Gemini is not used to having or considering. Gemini is a keen observer and may learn of Neptune’s skills by an osmosis of sorts. At times if feels like Neptune may be probing Gemini’s mind. How can anyone be psychic, so psychic?! Yet it happens and Gemini is opened to a whole new world. It’s not just facts anymore, but the added dimension of empathy too. The facts mean something to people, are symbols of life’s experiences. Again, the old adage, it’s not what you say but how you say it. It needs to come from the heart. And Justice is not always the best reason. We think we know, but in Evolution’s book there is always more.

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 7 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

Taurus invents simple. To freedom lover Uranus being in Taurus may feel too slow, too close for comfort, so unexciting. Yet  to Taurus, Uranus being in his sign may be the most fun he’s had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Uranus himself is shocked to find walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! It’s a whole new dimension compared to that desk chair in the still dead air scented office! Taurus may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Supercharged divine body electric!

Gemini marvels at the speed Taurus is making changes. Unprecedented! Gemini is delighted with Earth progress, climate work. Private citizens are making news by securing and protecting vast tracts of land, animals, bees, the research that is being sponsored to find the best ways to do the caring for it. These stimulate Gemini’s mind to seek the very latest, they update Gemini’s very genes! Gemini is in the local intelligence business and now finds himself inspired by how the whole planet is becoming local! Sharing skills across the world creates a mighty potential that Gemini finds exhilarating! Taurus sets the foundation, the springboard Gemini can work from securely!

CHIRON will be in Aries through 2027. In Gemini’s year, he will cover 1 to 8 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021, 13 years. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more Aries is the first of the zodiacal signs, takes action! Uranus’s sign change into Taurus has made a shift in the foundation, now is starting to hold steady.

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

Chiron in Aries quickly gives Gemini a lot to think about! He teaches Gemini about how mind works, perception. He inspires Gemini to take action. If you think it, do it, do it yourself! Be first and foremost. Gemini leads with information of possibilities, the news! Every day news sets our intention. We adjust to the quality and Spirit of it! Chiron sees to it that it is healing and helping, teaching us to step into our potential, not at some vague time in the future, but right now! Gemini attention is vital to foresee and make the adjustments in thinking to make it unfold without delay. Any wounds that occur along the way need maximum healing in minimum time. Make sure transportation is working optimally.

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

Saturn is working the last half of his own sign Capricorn! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 29 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through March 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! They say what they think. There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elder hood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in its own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids!

Gemini may find a renowned mentor in Saturn/Capricorn. Saturn may be intimidating and demanding, especially about following the rules. He wants Gemini to be responsible to the facts, and give them proper due. Gemini may at times find this all a bit stuffy, but admires Saturn’s dedication. Gemini may frequently need a good breath of fresh air to keep things balanced and keep his own free style, off on just the hint of a scent of an intrigue to be assessed. But he will find himself getting more done under Saturn’s firm hand. Even a younger Saturnian has an elder quality. Gemini may see the need to plan ahead for some things, retirement, elderhood. In fact, may find himself being a temporary caregiver for awhile. That glimpse into purposeful caring can give a lot of insight. Gemini may find himself being a little more sober and focused for awhile, get more done in shorter time. Rather than the shotgun approach, scattered attention, his research is more precise and brings excellent results as well.

Returns March 20 to April 19, 2020 are at 0 and 1 Aquarius! Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all-encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now, for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time while they do. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit and union. Many amazing like minded friendships may come, or if you are overwhelmed or need time to recenter, you may take time away and enjoy being on your own. If you are in business or want to spread the word about a project, your networking can go worldwide through social media! Concentrate on humanitarian and sustainability facets of your ventures and investments.

Gemini still feels the Saturn hand in things, but in Aquarius it is lighter and at times Saturn laughs and it’s a frolic! Who would have thought?! Saturn can be a real comedian! He’s been there and knows the problems. Aquarius is off in space or kinky crazy, usually a bit of both. If the humanitarian side comes through, it’s big potatoes time! Guided by Saturn’s business skills, it’s networking to the max. Gemini is totally onboard with this. Watching the big guys do their stuff is impressive and Gemini uses their model on his side of the table, the ‘hood and with siblings! Saturn in Aquarius works planetary media, expecting Gemini to get those stories out as fast as they are made. Saturn takes charge of current evolution, the science of gathering Souls to make necessary change just as fast as possible. The climate isn’t waiting for anyone, so Gemini is pressed into service checking data, connecting at local levels, arranging exchanges and discussions of techniques. Aquarius introduces Gemini to history makers! Wanting to serve them well, Gemini improves his skills, seeks the most potent media places to plant their stories that the information can spread quickly. It invites others to keep the stories and sharing going.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

Jupiter stays in Sag until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sag and Gemini have much in common. Jupiter is university level education; Gemini is learning how to learn. Jupiter travels worldwide while Gemini is handshaking the locals. Jupiter seeks meaning while Gemini gathers the information. So Jupiter may tease Gemini into thinking more about why to gather certain info, who to get it from, check its integrity. The info might go public, into a textbook, guide life’s travelers. Is it for time out entertainment or timely to save the planet? Accuracy could be crucial. Does it have a spark of the exotic that catches our attention, is it funny even if serious? Gemini is a multi talented, multi level sign, and can do it while connecting a whole community in united action in as little as a few days! Gemini has a 1000 bits at his fingertips, each one a conversation starter! He breathes it in and speaks it out!

Jupiter in Capricorn fairly streaks through Capricorn, getting to the 27th degree, almost completely through Cap, by May 20, 2020! It makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits and don’t invest on great sounding whims. Check things out. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, but he and Gemini will likely work something out since Gemini is such a clever asset. Jupiter has big ideas, could be a bit demanding and feel it is his right to demand hard work for important purposes. Gemini wasn’t exactly born to be a drudge, but will stay with things he’s interested in until his body gives out. You just can’t live on mind and air alone. Jupiter has that great big smile, you know – happy to know you, and people can’t resist doing what they can for him. Jupiter often has great success, so it’s worth the effort, and Jupiter is working for more to come! This is just the foundation investment for the future. Gemini will do his best if their goals are the same. Gemini has a way with media and Jupiter in Capricorn may bring it up to a greater height! But Gemini can’t be owned. Even success can be boring. He sees another thing that may be valuable and pursues it in a flash. Sometimes he scores and that intuition is right on. Perhaps hire him as a consultant…one who comes and goes. Jupiter needs to leave plenty of air space or the butterfly will be gone and no matter how impressive, you will be forgotten. Gemini is sometimes impressed by credentials, sometimes not. However, Jupiter did get a lot done in a short time, and Gemini will remember how that was done.

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas where they are on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have depends on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Geminis! Lead on!

Taurus, Peace, Strength and Insight

Taurus International Yoga Day

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Taurus 2018 Celestial Highlights!

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

Lyrid Meteors Radiant Sky & Telescope

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

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

Taurus 2018  Timeline!

Apr

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

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

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

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

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Tauruses’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus May 15! They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!

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

Continuing abiding Aspects: 

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Taurus 2018 – May 2019!

Taurus Skyline Dr Shenandoah National Park Wildflower Weekend

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

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 20 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

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

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces sees and dreams the vision, has empathy for those who suffer. Sometimes they need rescuing themselves, from being overwhelmed by what they see, from sadness that brings them down. Taurus helps steady that unbridled flow. Neptune symbolizes the flow of the land and seasons with its vast seasonal ocean currents. Taurus’s territory is what’s under his feet. Neptune swirls him to new shores. Neptune softens the deep consideration of Taurus’s ruminations, introduces a less obvious mystical sense into the mix. Though a bit unsettling, it removes that stubborn edge if you surrender. Things go a little faster, energy is released. Barefoot is best.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 4 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

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

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

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 4 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Taurus is pretty steady, but Chiron in Pisces is psychic at seeing what ails you. Might be food  – breads, cheese, sweets. Your body may be enormously physically strong, but too much of the wrong foods can trip you up, slow you down, cause tummy and other issues. Chiron looks at how that all can affect your attractiveness, self esteem, financial acuity, relationships – both lovers and children, your ability to take care of elders you love.

On a 51 year cycle, when Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, Taurus may be surprised to find ways to exercise that pleases them! Could be a bike ride, a ground covering walk in the woods! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with at times unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries intends to get right to it and Aries will be happily lead the way with innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. Taurus may find himself opening a gym with weights, competitive sports – boxing, martial arts. Chiron will show him new ways to do business, how to have relationships best suited to his Spirit, how to teach on the fly! 9 Years! They will congratulate each other for all the accomplishments – if they have time, LOL!

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


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

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn feels the support of fellow Earth sign Taurus. Taurus may be pushed by take-it-on Capricorn, but their intents are harmonious. Taurus wants a safe and comfortable home with good organic food in the kitchen. It knows the value of feeling well and having quality fare. Saturn will make demands and Taurus is willing to step up to the plate. Saturn realizes the value of experience and being steady under fire and is well pleased with Taurus’s contribution. Taurus may find themselves comfortably picking up the pace, especially with Capricorn’s expert time saving expertise. Saturn is grateful for Taurus’s dependability and loyalty. On both sides, be sure wages are fair and equitable for these benefits. 

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

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

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

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

FULL Buck/Thunder Moon!
New Moon!   

Full Buck/Thunder Moon – Pluto, Mercury Midpoint!
Wednesday July 1, at 7:20 PM Pacific – 9 Capricorn 55

Cancer Summer Moon Yukon Bike Cycle Tour

Sockeye Cycle’s Klondike Canoe & Bike Tour

July 2015 has TWO FULL MOONS! The SECOND July Full Moon is a BLUE Moon in Leo/Aquarius on July 31, 3:43 AM Pacific, at 7 Aquarius 56. At our first July Full Moon, the Buck/Thunder Moon, some places Bucks are growing their antlers for rutting season, the time to fight, make thunder for a mate, to make a family. Cancers are phenomenal parents, formidable protectors, staunch community members. Other places there is thunder, but most places it’s just plain summer magic coming true!

♦ A lot of the aspects this Full Moon are what we astrologers call separating, meaning the faster planet has already passed/leaving the slower planet. The Sun has separated from Mars, Venus from Jupiter, Jupiter from Uranus, and Sun and Moon are just past the trine/sextile with Neptune.

1. Sun separating Mars The Sun did conjunct frisky Mars, but it was back when they were both in Gemini on June 14. It would appear this aspect just happened in Cancer, they are only 4 degrees apart, but Mars moving more slowly than Sun didn’t get into Cancer until the Sun was much further ahead in Cancer. So this is kind of a fading phantom aspect. Close, thinking of what could have been….

2. Venus started a 7 degrees close time with Jupiter June 19! It is in a BlessingWay for 12 days! It is there today for Summer Solstice and Father’s Day, and tomorrow for the last Jupiter super trine Uranus. It makes a Grand Fire Trine June 30, Moon, Uranus, Venus/Jupiter! The Grand Trine starts 9:01 AM, finishes 11:18 AM, so the time frame is tight. The exact conjunction is July 1. Be sure to look for it in the night sky June 30!

Venus was with Jupiter only hours before the Full Moon, at 0:51 AM Pacific. Most of us slept through that, so the active time for it was the afternoon/evening of June 30. A more profound beauty, bigger expenses/a raise, love of a lifetime, speaking from the heart, entertainment with a purpose, a gift of travel tickets, the urge to run away, you got published or accepted into a special program! Time for gratitude.

3. Jupiter made the super trine Uranus June 22, but we are still in the glow until July 21. See Post!

4. Sun and Moon are still closely trine/sextileNeptune in Pisces! This is the most immediately preceding aspect, a BOW pattern! Sun trined Neptune 2:10 PM Pacific and just imbued Neptune with a splash of Light, a super charge, a flow of golden energy to light the circuits. All Light and all Water are connected planetwide. Feeling prime, like a LightHouse, Neptune has the strength to have the compassion needed for sending this Beacon to call the troops, to Light their day and night, to have courage to carry on.
X
5. Moon sextiled Neptune at 6:59 PM Pacific only 21 MINUTES before the FULL MOON! Moon in Capricorn with Pluto could be obsessively sensible, where Neptune in Pisces was born not to be! Soul and Spirit is what matters to Neptune. Godless money without love or integrity, is a sorry thing. But, if a person is an addict, the nurturing Moon, with healer/detoxer Pluto, in reassuring discipline of dependable Capricorn may turn the tables to a better life. Sometimes being tough is compassion. Moon’s major job is to nurture no matter what, no matter how repulsive, dangerous, contagious, forsaken. She sometimes succumbs herself, but more often, she thrives doing what she is blessed to be able to do.

Separating aspects tell the tale of what happened before. They are the foundation wisdom we carry forward. They are what influence current decisions. What we like we keep in our lives, part of our toolkit, inspiration. We let some things fade away, as they should, though even a faint residue may continue to trigger old responses at times. Cancers are noted for their memory, the importance of their history. So before this Full Moon, pay attention to the preceding events and do your very best so what you carry forward supports you in your growth.

What is upcoming is the Moon conjunct Pluto, Mercury MIDPOINT sextile Jupiter and Venus/Uranus!

♦ Moon to Pluto is the most powerful aspect of this Full Moon! In Capricorn it is a wee bit of a challenge because the Moon is the planet of Cancer, the sign opposite Capricorn! An integration, perhaps a respectful partnering could be brilliant. If Cancer has been too dependent, impressed by power, it may call for a need not to be hypnotized. There may be a potent merger, an understanding that leaves everyone breathless in its intensity. With the Moon and Sun opposite, the feminine is separated as far as it can get from the dominant masculine, given a chance to find its way on its own. Or, perhaps, if Pluto is an ally, there may be a secret passage, guided by an Elder of impressive strength. The Sun being in the Moon’s sign Cancer may surprise everyone with a more feminine way of being than expected. The business at hand may take some time, but be worth the effort.

With Saturn back in Scorpio, he too is related to this Full Moon since he and Pluto in Capricorn are now again Mutual Reception, in each other’s signs. Seniors, ancient places, ice, minerals, stones are of an essence. Research, healing, psychotherapy, detoxing are needed so profoundly to clear our ways for future change. Disabilities, financial distresses, addictions, prisons need new ways of treatment. We wont solve these matters overnight, but we can pay attention and ask for what we want, do what we can. We have until September 17. Saturn won’t be back in Scorpio for another 29 years after that. This is a powerful opportunity; don’t miss the window.

Mercury sextile Jupiter and Venus is downright blessed and super lucky! They are happy to hear Mercury’s ideas and Jupiter in Leo can expand the principle, extend the vision further forward in time. Venus adds her touch, a beautiful way with the words, a sweetness from the heart. If there has been trouble, make amends. Turn in the application. Act as if you are what you want to be! Tune up your colors, use a loving tone of voice, add a smile. Ask for what you want. Whether you get it or not doesn’t matter. You will be heard and that may open doors you never even thought of! It’s a gift!

Mercury sextile Uranus is pure genius! Mercury is potently in its own sign Gemini, the Word. Clever, mirroring ideas back and forth, logical, quick, master of diversity, funny! Uranus is in Aries, the Initiate, pure instantaneous intuition! Uranus is the Awakener, the evolutionary ChangeMaker! It is your friend, or part of community or worldwide organizations. Flight, space travel, the internet all take us places where camaraderie begins. Together we support each other in healing, finding new ways.

♦ Mercury at the MIDPOINT means it links Jupiter/Venus and Uranus! If Jupiter is too opinionated or raw with the truth, Mercury is quick to explain how the idea is valuable. Venus chimes in with a softening phrase but maintains the point. If Venus is too sugary or selfish, Mercury can put in some reasoning that we all might deserve a bit more and here’s how. If Mercury is all facts and figures, information ad infinitum, Jupiter and Venus in Leo add the fun, beauty and heart, put it in perspective to a longer plan. After all, there is always more! If Uranus gets bored, gets a little ‘strange’ and scares the populus, the others concoct a party of extraterrestrial proportions, everyone has fun, the pressure is relieved, and things get back to business.

Add to that, Mercury is also square Chiron in Pisces. There are supernatural mysteries that will never be solved. Sometimes it’s good to know that is so. It’s ok to just let certain things simmer on the back burner. Mercury in Gemini does like neat logic, but musing can be equally entertaining. What is our purpose, how is that growing with us, always alive and changing even when we don’t understand it? There are reminders on both sides – be logical and stop ‘wasting time,’ be mystical and don’t forget compassion. Sometimes the Great Mystery needs a champion to explain its workings. You can’t see meditation, but it can be explained so you can do it….

The blessing of a Full Moon is the Light. The Sun and Moon are in consideration of each other. They are separated for greater perspective, less influence, to be more themselves without the other’s demands or unspoken expectations. Sometimes they just bring a renewed awareness of the other and a new chapter begins. This Thunder Moon Father Sun is in Mother Moon’s sign Cancer, and Mother Moon is in Father Time’s sign, Capricorn. There is a softening of Father Sun’s beams, a bending down to tend the Baby. Mother Moon is strengthening her stand, ever so more aware of cycles and her place in our culture. She is strong, and lends her gentleness to the Ancient One, the Guide who so often stands alone when we arrive at the Crossroads. Keep the Light ON.

New Moon – Cancer Stellium, Pollux the Immortal Twin!
Wednesday July 15, at 6:24 PM Pacific – 23 Cancer 14

Cancer Full Moon Woman Cradle Sleep

Rock me in the cradle. Mama Moon is so comfy in her own sign, loving with Father Sun. She IS Woman, sweet, mystical, humming a lullaby. Perfect reflection….

Loving her baskets and bowls, Cancer gathers precious herbs and foods, treasures and keepsakes. Father Sun accepts her gifts, listens to the whispers and stories along the gathering Path. She accumulates a special wisdom from steeping in feelings of the ones she feeds and heals. She spreads her loving like a blanket over a newborn babe.

A New Moon finishes one cycle, begins a new one. Give gratitude for your achievements these last days. Take a deep breath, be still, start where you are, strong in what you have created. Open your Spirit to another cycle, this one centered in your life now, and the knowing you have from past lives, from the Matriarchy of all Childhood, Maiden and Motherhood, Womanhood.

♦ This Sun and Moon are most closely allied in semisextile with Jupiter. Jupiter is the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It seeks the meaning of things. Food must be more than just for the body, it has to feed the long view of our purpose. When Cancer wants to stay home and dwell on things, as it sometimes should and does well, Jupiter wants to get out and take a look about, get some perspective, seek more opinions. It makes things bigger than life! Jupiter means well and has the best intentions, so try not to get your feelings hurt when they blurt those blunt words. Oops. But they redeem themselves with expansive ideas for your business or teaching your children. In Leo, Jupiter has a big heart and loves sports, so let them take you with them, especially if you want to lose a little weight!

♦ Moon and Sun are trine Saturn who is back in Scorpio. Saturn in Scorpio is rather a serious chap, but he’s been in Scorpio before, for a couple of years, so we are used to his antics now. Saturn rules Capricorn, Cancer’s opposite sign, but the favorable trine connection brings things more into a useful arrangement. Cancers don’t shirk their work, and Saturn expects things to get done with precision and in a timely fashion. Scorpio is intense, even obsessive, so you can imagine what can get accomplished! All these are interested in finances and investments. Parental and lover relationships will be vetted. Diet and psychological health will come under scrutiny.

♦ The New Moon is at 23 degrees Cancer 14, the fixed star POLLUX is at 23 Cancer 13, only ONE MINUTE apart! Castor and immortal Pollux were the twin warrior brothers of the constellation Gemini, the sign Cancer. Various things are written about Pollux, most of them associated with Mars. Most indicate challenge yet strength to overcome. Cancer is not known as a fighting sign, nor is the New Moon usually. Yet they are known to give their lives to defend their household, mates, and especially children. This will not be a casual New Moon. It’s not just added spunk, it will have teeth. Pollux is complicated….

  • It is the star of writing, the emotional/passionate writer, has the gift of contemplative speculation, is subtle, crafty.
  • Known for audacity, being spirited, brave, having powerful strength and ferocity, is fierce defender.
  • It has super athletic ability, love of sport. It is favorable for martial artists, boxers, fighters and warriors, It is helper if in peril on voyages at sea, blessed with immortality.
  • When bad, it has dignified malevolence, is brutally cruel and tyrannical, quarrels, rash, rape committed or suffered, the “Heartless Judge,” decapitation, calamity. Riches and honors are often followed by disgrace, and possible imprisonment for embezzling.
  • It can be a person misusing his energy or others deceiving him and fate playing him some cruel tricks, a painful journey.
  • On the Lunar side, vulgarity is displeasing, there may be ill-will for or by women, Mother’s honor and reputation could temporarily suffer.
  • Mars rules the head, so be careful. Pollux is considered bad for eyesight, bring injuries to the eyes and face. Be careful with toxins, poisons.

Clearly, these warnings are not for the faint of heart, nor to be taken lightly. Maybe they seem melodramatic. Hopefully nothing dire will happen at all! To the credit side, if the energy is used wisely and you keep your wits about you, your efforts can pay off handsomely.

There are higher principles at work as well. Since the twins were mortal and immortal, there is the coming metaphysical consciousness of knowing how the human and divine are both within us, what it is to be human and divine at the same time. There is an explosive dark shadow side and a poised civilized side. This polarity, allows a comprehensive range of observations, an outstanding synthesis of solutions, a partnership of talents.

Along with the strong Pollux factor, also in Cancer, Mercury and Mars could be ferocious, or at least are verbal defenders of home and family! They are censored by the opposition with Pluto in Capricorn. No matter how emotional or impassioned, there are still certain procedures and timing one must abide by. Since all three planets are at 14 degrees, there is simply no avoiding this potency. Words will be spoken, some not easily forgiven if ever. Others will make their mark and give us a lifetime of guidance. If challenged, take plenty of time outs. Be prepared by backing up what you have to say with science or data from reputable sources. And don’t let yourself be overwhelmed or taken in. Say you will think about it and get back to them when you say you will.

Now another side of that coin is you or they are fired up about something that should have been taken care of long ago, maybe even centuries! By reaching out for funding, asking that research be done, you may find professional respected support for your cause. Many who have been sitting back may reach a tipping point and things finally move forward like a tide. Congratulations.

A background aspect is Moon and Sun have been trining Chiron. Chiron is mythologically related to the Centaurs, Sagittarius, half horse, half human, quite powerful, a wiseman. Chiron was the king of the centaurs, yet he suffered an interminable wound because of an offense to one of the gods. He learned medicine, became a teacher, gave his life for another to end his agony. Now in the sign Pisces, this story of surrender and saving fits well. Moon and Sun have been seeking deeper wisdom to share onward, to nurture their family or anyone in need.

Magi astrologers say Chiron is THE marriage and business planet. As I have tracked it in relationships, I agree. And excellent partnerships are certainly a foundation for business success. There are opportunities with our New Moon to trust the intuition we have been having to guide us. Cancer knows practical things that affect all the commodities in our lives. PIsces carries the dream, the Vision that leads us to the glory of our Spirit.

May it go well with you.

Cardinal Grand Square – Mercury to Uranus/Pluto/Saturn with Mars Square Neptune!

Father’s Day this year will really be a 4 day affair, the 17th through the 21st, with emphasis on communication!  Mercury in Cancer will make three challenging aspects over those days.  It starts with a shake up, open-the-gates square to Uranus in Aries, midday the 18th.  That’s a mind changer, free-thinker, alone or together, wants different, I’ll tell you one better than that!  It is concerned about the monies of a career or business.  Caution on contracts with friends.

Midday Father’s Day, June 19, Mercury opposes Pluto in Capricorn.  Intimacy, sharing of secrets, could be unsettling, bring a surprise closeness, revelations about parents’ relationships or mates, even friends.  Money matters.   Loans, grants, funding may seem out of reach, yet, the connection is there to follow.  The past is the past.  Let it go if it makes sense.  Forgiving doesn’t mean you have to forget or leave yourself unguarded.  Do be careful with what you say and in front of whom.  When in doubt, don’t, is a good way not to get into something you never meant to happen.  Sometimes repairs, amends, are possible, other times, not.  Be very gentle.

Midday June 21, Summer Solstice, Mercury squares Saturn in Libra.  This finishes the set.  Now there have been a few days to mull things over, this aspect becomes important because Saturn rules Fathers!!!  Mercury wants to talk.  Will that be ok?  Are all parties ready?  This calls for respect in every direction.  Brittle and rigid don’t work well.  Panic defenses need to be set aside.  Deep breath.  Keep the installments short with plenty of time outs.  Make a commitment to  carry on in a short time after the adrenaline has settled.  Don’t let fears amplify while you keep someone waiting.

Some very beautiful progress can be made here, unraveling long-standing issues.  What’s most at stake is the way you all talk about things.  Respect, open heartedness.  Bumbles will be made.  We are all learning.  Parents too.

All these days, Mars in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces, also exact on Summer Solstice!  Mars is the Aries planet of war, but also inspiration and leadership.  Neptune is the God of the Sea, from rock-me-in-the-cradle waves to tsunamis!  Push kindly for what you want, don’t swamp the ship!

See June 18 to 21 below for more perspective about this aspect set.

Please do have a most precious Father’s Day!  I would love to hear your stories how this unfolded for you and your loved ones!
