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!
