Cancers Feed the Tribe, Body and Soul…

Cancer Chef Anthony Bourdain dining with Prez Obama

Cancer born June 25, 1956. Let’s celebrate the life of renowned and much loved, inspiring Chef, Host, Author & Adventure-seeker Anthony Bourdain who is no longer with us on this Earth plane. CNN said of chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain: “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink, and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller.”

Formerly the chef at Les Halles in New York City, Bourdain broke into national fame with his book Kitchen Confidential. He landed on the Food Network with A Cook’s Tour, then gained a broader audience as star of Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. He moved to CNN in 2013, where Season 11 of his show premiered last month. Peabody Award judges honored Bourdain’s Parts Unknown in 2013 for “expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure.”

Cancers are strong on home, and Chef’s home was the whole world. In his own mothering way, he integrated across cultural, racial, and status divides. Chef was a champion active in social causes, particularly in highlighting the role of immigrant workers in restaurant kitchens. For years, he was vocal about how immigrants are the backbone of the industry but that their contributions are marginalized and ignored.

Bourdain was so true to himself. He dropped out of college in the early 1970s and transferred to The Culinary Institute of America. Cancers are often artists and photographers ~ well, he put you right there in the picture with his words that made you see and feel what he was telling you! “I wanted it all: the cuts and burns on hands and wrists, the ghoulish kitchen humor, the free food, the pilfered booze, the camaraderie that flourished within rigid order and nerve-shattering chaos,” he wrote. “I love the sheer weirdness of the kitchen life: the dreamers, the crackpots, the refugees, and the sociopaths with whom I continue to work; the ever-present smells of roasting bones, searing fish, and simmering liquids; the noise and clatter, the hiss and spray, the flames, the smoke, and the steam.”

Chef was open to the core, the good, the bad and the ugly. He lived big and broad. He kicked addictions to heroin and cocaine. He was twice married and divorced, and had a daughter, Ariane. Recently, he had shared photos together with his girlfriend, actress and filmmaker Asia Argento. Asia said “He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated.”

Cancers take you under their wing like an old broody hen, make us feel safe. “Journalists drop into a situation, ask a question, and people sort of tighten up,” Bourdain said. “Whereas if you sit down with people and just say, ‘Hey what makes you happy? What do you like to eat?’ They’ll tell you extraordinary things, many of which have nothing to do with food.”

Obama said: “Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer. This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him.”

See Tony’s astrology chart. With Mercury and Venus in Gemini he had an additional gift with words. In Leo, Jupiter in close conjunction with Pluto gave him bold intensity that left no stone unturned, triggered revelation. They made him a teacher with a big heart, a consummate performer. Sadly, those two in T Square with Saturn in Scorpio, and with his Mars in Pisces, led to his demise at his own hands. His birthtime is unknown ~ the Moon was either Capricorn or Aquarius, and his Ascendant is unknown. Whatever his ascendant is, it made him 6′ 4″ tall, and taller yet in Spirit. RIP dear Soul.

Cancer 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Mars July 2018 compared 2020 NASA

Mars to Shine Brighter This Summer Than It Has in 15 Years

  • Over the course of the next several weeks, the distance between the Earth and the Red Planet will shrink.
  • It will shift from the predawn sky to the night sky
  • Mars will be brighter than Jupiter July 7 to September 7, brightest the morning of July 31, brighter than Jupiter by some 1.8 times!
  • The next time Mars comes as close as it will this summer won’t occur again until Sept. 15, 2035.
Amazingly, for a period of about two months, Mars will supplant Jupiter as the fourth brightest celestial body, after the sun, moon and Venus. Mars’ reign as the fourth-brightest celestial body (or third brightest in the nighttime sky, after the moon and Venus) will last from about July 7 to September 7.

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness
In N. Hemisphere, noontime shadows are shortest at this solstice
Longest day for N. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunset
Shortest day for S. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunrise
The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

Cancer 2018  Timeline!

June
21 Happy Summer Solstice! Happy Cancer!
26 Mars Retrograde
27 Full Strawberry Moon Capricorn/Cancer

July
7  Mercury Retrograde cycle starts
12 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse!
16 Chiron/Uranus semisextile
22 Happy Leo!
25 Mercury in Leo starts double Retrograde

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Gemini’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 shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and just shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala was next. The next outer planet sign change Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as laying your bricks in a straight line.

Cancer 2018 hosts no major outer planet aspects, but nurtures us in the aftermath of various shifts and schisms, nurtures us to step into our future selves.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the Timeline above please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrogrades back to back! Literally months of retrograde!

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!

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!

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

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2018 – July 2019!

Cancer Toddlers playing late day sunny road

Remember when you were little? Who did you want to be and where did you go? Cancer’s journey begins in the womb, the Mother place that means so much to them. Intuitive as they are, they pick up a lot even then. Sometimes they ‘stay home,’ live their parents’ expectations. Other times they are the leaders over the divides of decades and cultural expectations, and against the odds ‘take their parents with them.’ Whether you are the Little Prince (author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry a Cancer), Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll, Moon conjunct the ASC Sagittarius) or Cinderella (Charles Perrault birthtime unknown), maybe it’s your time to take the lead, kindly, in a good way.

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 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Cancer, Moon, and Pluto, Scorpio, have resonance as water signs and planets. Capricorn opposite Cancer is something else. One, they are the traditional axis of Father/Mother, child/parent, feminine/masculine, home/career, emotions/science. Both are traditional. Cancer loves genealogy, family culture, antiques. Capricorn rules patriarchal authorities, elders and archaeology, bones and homes of the past. Their ultimate goal together is for their children to flourish and carry on the best the family has to offer. Capricorn can seem harsh to Cancers, who ruled by the 27 day lunar cycle, the Moon, have unpredictable emotions. They need a little wiggle room, and Cappies like law and order, no fooling around or wasting time on invisible things! There are times of strain unless Capricorn sees the value of intuition, comforts Cancer through certain times, and acknowledges all things are not 100% scientific!

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 degreeswill be activated with this pure energy! Cancer may not be as spiritually intent as Neptune/Pisces, but she does know family comes first! That’s her spiritual goal! There’s little time for addictions, zero time for being the martyr when your kids need you. Yet she shares that uncanny intuition, and values the insights her dreams give her. She has lunar cycles, while Neptune/Pisces have tidal cycles. Cancer and Neptune understand things come and go, ebb and wane, return and leave, live and die. Children grow up, the Soul quests the Universe. Some things are just bigger than others, from a grain of tidal sand to the new and full Moons of Cancer that correlate with the tides of Neptune. They are as one. Cancer cherishes time to sit quietly. It’s good to know there are oceanic options always there should she decide to leave home.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered 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!

Cancer is pushed off center by Aries, and sudden changes that come by both Uranus and Aries! If you want to keep on with what your Mother did, family traditions, you may be chagrined or if you have a few rebel bones too, delighted to find new ways to carry on! Uranus and Aries generally don’t have time to coddle or cater to your feelings, you might have to give a mighty yell to get their attention, in fact! At times their doings are more important in the long term, and you come to see that and resent them less. But you can feel abandoned and neglected. You can help them learn better how to deal with the average citizen who doesn’t have as mighty a project out there on the fringes. You might like what they are doing, but not how they are doing it when dealing with humans, children. If you are a supporter, they are lucky to have you. Compared to odd/exotic Uranians, an ‘ordinary’ Cancer can take that project to the town hall meeting and get it launched!

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 now, 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! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Cancer is still leery of Uranus, but in Taurus as least it is more calm. Taurus can be patient, but perhaps not so patient about environmentalism and sustainability. They want things to last. And so do Cancers who by nature need security. Food comes from the land, and Cancers make meals for their family. They want good quality, organic if possible, food. Taurus is our bodies, and Cancer knows how important right balance of nutrients is and to keep steady with exercise. More of us may find ourselves with furry pets. Research says our pets help us live longer and that goes well with Cancer who wants to live long and well to take care of their loved ones. Uranus in Taurus interventions are more likely to be well received.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries, close to the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac 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! Cancer is good with the fellow nurturer Chiron and the Spirit healer Pisces, body and Soul. Cancer knows there is more than what we see with our eyes. Pisces has its dreams and visions, Cancer has an array of feeler emotions that reach out and see their own way. Cancer is happy with Chiron’s remedies and understanding, tenderness with children and animals, ones that have Soul sicknesses. Knowing someone who ‘knows’ is there makes Cancer feel safer, so they are less crabby. And Cancer loves learning! Since security is on Cancer’s list, she likes Chiron’s business ideas too! Might even open her own business!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Cancer knows how things can be swept under the carpet. Cancer can tend to get overweight and turn into a homebody in denial. But the world continues on around us. We are needed as teachers, and Cancers are relentless scholars! Aries wants us to be the leader, on the cutting edge. They need the historic facts to back their play. Be ready to consult, they may need you at any moment! Chiron in Aries can get grumpy when they know something vital needs timely attention. Dr Chiron would certainly be there for you if your child was sick!

x
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 July 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 stands opposite Cancer. Saturn/Capricorn can feel like a ton of bricks when Cancer is feeling sensitive. Or when Cancer is feeling sensitive, good old Saturn is their rock and we are so grateful they keep us feeling safe and steady. Every once in a while we just need to be a little lunar crazy and no amount of consoling is wanted! There are times our very instability is our ticket to intuitions, premonitions, fluid feelings that get us right where we need to be with the very right answer! Not logical but it works. Capricorn can learn that is a special kind of order they can use themselves at times. Lock down isn’t always the answer. Cancers do at times need to grow up. They can be like little adult children with that sweet face and childlike voice. You don’t know whether to believe them or not. Capricorn is the wizened child, either by face or demeanor. Take a cue from them. Take advantage of their example. Slim Cappies are noted for self-discipline and not being self-indulgent. Cancer’s addiction is food. Timing and situational events can be our undoing. Capricorn turns his energy to avoiding time wasting dangerous environments, instead, puts his attention on work, building. Balance is good.
x
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 the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Cancer being the hearth bunny may see this need for silence, recovery from the intensity he has witnessed, and she may simply give him a place to rest. Or, wanting to learn, she pesters him with many questions until he says ‘Enough!’ They laugh and she leaves him alone 5 mins. She learns more about the intimacies of the world – cultural differences that people live and die for, financial gain and ruin, hate, crime and saviors. Takers and donors. Living in misery or swaddled in wealth. She changes as she listens. She’s more grateful, more determined to stand for the good things she believes in, to be more aware of what’s behind the scenes and respond more appropriately. It’s not as potent to hear it on the news and turn the news off. Your friend, who has appeared on your doorstep brings this personally, experienced it, and you can’t turn him off.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius! Cancer is the first water sign, Mother’s Milk. While Sag goes racing off around the world, Cancer has the hearth fire burning right at home. Always the scholar, she is intrigued by Sag stories, and travels for free with no danger as his stories are so picturesque she can see the people and places! She knows better than to trust he will always be there for her, but he gives her the confidence of the world because he goes and comes back, generally unscathed. When he’s here, she is cheered! She in turn has more hopes for her own doings, including those uncommon recipes! Her senses are broadened, her insights more far reaching. Sag is an exciting rogue and it’s catching! The weekend trips, vacations are a little longer now, intriguing places visited. She has stories of her own to tell and the pictures to prove it! Sag enjoys the visit with this Earth Mother. He finds he is comforted by her attentions and feels bold again, good food and all, snacks packed, and off he goes!

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

Cancer Family Reunion

We’ve clearly got some family resemblances at this reunion! Possible twins, Grandma and Grandpa look happy, there’s the little boy doing what little boys do! Maybe you have never had such a reunion, yours was just like this one, down home. Or maybe you all rented a hall or had dinner at a fine restaurant dressed to kill. Our families are so different, large, small. We are not perfect and we have our differences with each other, but there is love.

Bless all you Cancer sweeties! We adore you!

Gemini, It’s in Your Hands…

Gemini Prana Breath of Life Hand Touch

Prana is the life force, our breath. We breathe as we speak; that’s the sound of our Soul.

Sharing information is perhaps the most elemental, the daily Word that goes around the village.

Gemini is the sign of the mind, most specifically communications. There are many facets to be called upon.

Commanding, in Leadership or as Guardian. Lead what you do well. We all have personal Grace, a specialty or two that is part of why we are here. If your commands are true, you will be trusted and looked to for Guidance. Thank you. When necessary, throw your voice to deflect or ward off inappropriate energy. Call on your Higher Self. Your strength will be amazing.

Requesting We each can’t do everything. We Give to one another because it makes simple sense. Ask for what you need and honor the requests of others. If you can’t help, let others know what this person needs. It takes a village.

Praise. How we honor one another makes a difference. Being appreciated, acknowledged for the vital part we play keeps us tuned up and ready for the next venture. Sometimes we work hard, with no thought other than being who we are, yet that unique place we hold is essential to the total well being, the wholeness of All. We become One.

Kindness is another form of leadership. We make mistakes as we grow, get out of balance and ill at times. We have challenges in families, relationships and with our finances. A kind suggestion at the right time, an assurance that we will keep learning and find our way, may be just what we needed to hear. It confirms our worthiness. Someone took a few moments to notice. It’s the process that counts. We may land in a better place than where we ever thought we were going to be!

Singing! Hallelujah! Celebrate! Your gain is our gain, is encouragement for all. Invite us with your song! Sing it at night, at sunrise on the mountain, whistle while you ride your bike.

Chants, OM Chants can be about anything, for any purpose. As a Bumblebee vibrates its body at the C note, different tones, minors, majors, have cellular to spiritual effect. OM tunes you to the power of the Creator. Start your Gatherings, Circles with sounds of your choice – for yourselves, your intention.

Vocal Toning, Chakras Let the sounds of the voices wash over you, cleanse you, permeate you, go through you from Crown to Toes, and back up, out the Crown into the ethers of the Universe. You never left, but you have been changed by the voyage. If you are at the gym, let out some good grunts and groans as you open those Chakras physically as well! So satisfying! Yoga works too…

Soothing lullabies. To babies, for people about to leave their bodies, to yourself when you go to sleep. Breathe to gentle music too. Hum a little tune of your very own while you concentrate and get this little thing and that little thing done. Good job.

First, always Clear your Channels. Breathe deep, release, let go of old debris that dulls your energy, muddles your mind, blocks your way. Be sure your breath and intent are clear, pure. Up the amps by asking that you are cleared of long held energy you didn’t realize you are still carrying. It has its own weight, wastes your energy as you carry it day after day, and still attracts other such energy. No more.

Breathe deep, breathe out. Be still and open. Let the Infusion of the highest energy be with you. With intent share it out, a mighty blanket of wisdom, a cloud of Light. Listen to your breath. Breathe as Ra would breathe. Breathe as your hero or Savior would breathe. Breathe as the Buddha by the road would breathe. Breathe as Gaia breathes.

You hold the precious Breath of Life in you, your part in our world today. Think as you think, speak as you feel.

You can amplify your Breath, your Word, with your hands. Laying on of hands is an ancient practice. We all can do it. We all have Gemini, and Mercury, the planet of the Twins, at special places in our astrology charts. Some people ‘hear’ better when they are touched, grounded. Always, and only, do laying on of hands with entire respect. You are a Channel. It can be a massage, a hand on the shoulder, a hug, a handshake transmission.

Yes, there is duality. Twins are the remarkable symbol of it. Duality is a Gemini job and talent. We breathe in, we breathe out. We have two hands, Geminis often ambidextrous. Right brain, left brain. Harmonize them like an Artist, the Psychic, a Healer! Be well conscious of them; use this additional talent with direct attention and intention. Blessed be.

Gratitude. Give thanks for all that ever was, is and will be. When we say Namaste, we acknowledge the unknowable Divinity in every being. We are thankful for being in each other’s company. We don’t always know the import of the life they lead, the place it holds for all of us. We do not live for ourselves alone. There are many observers. We may not understand it in that moment, sometimes things seem bad, very bad, but in time we will see the value of even that experience too. What we are grateful for grows in a good way. Let the flower bloom. Gratitude is good fertilizer. Say your gratitude out loud.

Gemini is an incredible Sign. They have a huge capacity for an astonishing array of information. They can pluck data seemingly out of mid air, but when they received it they correlated it quickly, archived it automatically, and can give it back to you enhanced when needed! They hold informations from sources differing in points of view and can tell you the important points, plus, explain the style of thinking it came from, age factors, cultural backgrounds, along with the source’s financial standing! At times they are considered chatterboxes – there has to be some outlet, the dam has to spill! Old is let out so new can be let in. What they really have is a huge memory capacity that brims and flows with LIFE! Of course they are excited! They live on the collective edge every remarkable moment!

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and just shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! The next outer planet sign change Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as laying your bricks in a straight line.

Gemini 2018 hosts the second Jupiter Trine Neptune. There is much to talk about as we aim toward the possible blessings this will bring. We need to gather the people, tell them all about it, the important parts each will play, and line up the steps, respond in a timely fashion as it all unfolds!

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the complete timetableJuly 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus is retrograde, then Mercury retrogrades the very day Venus turns forward Nov 16! They make back to back retrogrades! The Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic is during the Venus retrograde.

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 Aspect: 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 Gemini 2018 – June 2019!

Gemini Pansy Flowers! Full Face to Life!

Put a smile on it! Who knows who you will meet along the way?

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 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Gemini is properly flitty. They don’t mind responsibility that suits their spirit. But don’t tell them something you don’t want to get around. It doesn’t mean they can’t keep secrets, but when they get in the buzz of things, it may come out in the natural flow of the connection. Geminis may find underworld specialist Pluto a little dark and skulky, when Gemini is definitely out and about, sunshine preferred. Rather than therapist, Gemini is an info carrier and spreader that perks your interest! Capricorn wants to tell them what to do, put a timeline on it and standards of performance to measure your worth. Well, Gemini is an air sign and may feel caged by those attempts. They need freedom to spontaneously flow with where the juice is! Yet, a few guidelines can be helpful. They do listen, and use what you say to their advantage when it fits! Just be sure your expectations of them are realistic. Hire them for the right job.

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. Scintillating magical Gemini charms them with an array of current threads of information and insights that keeps Neptune from settling into a funk. Too much of that funk dampens Gemini’s spirits. Gemini will wilt and have to leave. But Neptune is also a dreamer visionary! Gemini will be excited to share the vision and carry word of it far and wide, person by person, who in turn will tell the tale!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 5 Taurus! Uranus entered 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!

Gemini can’t wait to share all this exciting news! Changes are being made right and left, Gemini dancing to the music, mimicking and miming when words are not enough or languages are different! The laying on of hands has potency like never before. The breath of Life is fully charged! Gemini’s vantage point is raised to the highest level, the words more meaningful than ever thought they could be. What an honor to carry these messages.

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 now, 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! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Gemini is both charged and soothed. Uranus is electric; Taurus slows down so things are fully absorbed and understood. Gemini likes fast but is still intrigued, so part of what he thinks about now is the magic of this staying process, becoming one with the thought. Taurus calls for an application. Gemini may need to adjust to figuring out exactly what can be done with these particular new ideas. That then becomes the greater reason for sharing. Pulling together like the great oxen of ancient times is an incredible experience! Twins know that deep in their Souls. We really are One.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for awhile later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac 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! Gemini, the sign of the breath, is not so easy with those life threatening water signs. Yet water is cleansing and any superfluous mental debris can be washed away to keep your Spirit clean. Your breathing channels may be cleared and your words flow more easily. Pisces lends a visionary insight that knocks you right off your seat! Chiron may ordain you as a teacher. How to talk with the Angels!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Gemini will be giddy at times! How to keep up with this fiery force! How to let all those people know about the new healing techniques, get all the details on the newsworthy significant relationships as they come and go?! Initiation connections are precious and sacred. We learn more about how to speak and when to listen. Being inspiring is a spiritual technique. We need to lead people out of hiding or slumber, to realize what can be done and that they can do it! Chiron leads the way and Gemini has notepad and internet handy. Blogs and social media are flying! Standby for breaking news! “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” — Malala Yousafzai.

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 wants to groom Gemini for maximum effect! He sees the value of Gemini’s connections, vast information banks, hands on work, ability to advertise what they love, and super sales ability! Crackerjack! But it is important not to ‘capture’ them. They lose their loose and when it isn’t fun and free, to a degree, they lose their light and wither. Give your Gemini plenty of room. That’s how they stay quick and creative! But if Gemini is down for other reasons, it may be strong old Saturn that scoops you up to help you and get you back on your feet. If you made a mistake, they can help remedy the error. Sometimes a routine is reassuring and your breath gets back on an even keel. God bless. They can help you stay on course and put your words where they count the most! Award winning excellence, teamwork exemplified.   

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, the planet of Sagittarius, the sign opposite Gemini. Jupiter can gather Gemini’s information, see it’s collective bigger meaning, the direction it points. Gemini doesn’t always realize the purpose of his gathering he is so intrigued by the singular importance of each treasure. He’s delighted when Jupiter makes it more and the reach of it all is greater, the perspective shown. Jupiter in Scorpio delves deep into the Great Mystery of life and death and teaches the sacred matters the raise us up, the Kundalini, how the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Gemini is the Breath, the Word of Light. It is the sign of the planet nearest the Sun. Gemini understands how close to life we really live. They may nervously chatter at times, but even that represents the hum of Life. Gemini may not be personally delighted to look face to face into the Cauldron, but also realizes the secrets of power held there. Revelation is a mighty tool, and Gemini is there to tell the story in bite size pieces that people feel safe to take in.

Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Gemini is the opposite sign. Fire and Air! Air feeds fire. Jupiter is BIG here, the planet of abundance, luck. Truth, integrity, faith. Travel, teaching, playfulness. So many good things to share with Gemini! An invitation par excellence! But too much can interfere with Gemini’s more local and personal methods. The Twin is the Twin. They mirror others, a we-are-one special kind of trust. But, of course, knowing we are part of a greater whole gives us a frame of reference that makes us specially selective with information sources. Too much data fever, and we forget to just stop and have some fun! Fun lover Jupiter may lead us astray and delay us, but we needed that! Visiting a different ‘hood opens up our jaded senses, interrupts our habitual way of seeing and judging! Gemini plays tennis, a good volley is exhilarating! Sagittarius gets you up on the Horse, hikes you up the mountain so you can see further and your ‘hood expands instantly! Have fun!

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

Uranus Aries Dangermond Preserve Pt Conception

Dec 22, 2017 when Uranus was at 24° Aries, Laura & Jack Dangermond made a bold move. They donated $165M to preserve 24,000 acres at Point Conception CA. They hope their gift to the Nature Conservancy, their leadership, encourages similar philanthropic efforts. See more And from National Geographic

Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus the same day as our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations created. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk publicly about sex, money, death. Food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, from worldwide AIDS to gay marriage, and guns. We’ve gotten television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! Environmental awareness is on the table, and now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus is the planet of R/Evolution, Stars, Space, the great Internet! Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. They support us to be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind; uninfluenced we find our own special path. Uranus is the planet of philanthropy and electronics technology.

Chiron’s sign change into Aries is the first of the 5 outer planet sign changes of 2018. Chiron and Uranus travel together in Aries, one at the beginning, the other at the end, 28 days, until Uranus enters Taurus May 15. Uranus has spectacularly crashed and burned, created rifts and openings to ease Chiron’s way, to see new beginnings, work his healing magic in more etheric realms, do the business of the Soul! Uranus will pass the baton to Chiron. In Taurus Uranus will plow the fertile fields for further seeds to be planted by Chiron.

Uranus will be in Aries the first part of 2018 until it goes into Taurus May 15, on the Taurus NEW MOON. It’s the same day, Mars leaves Capricorn, jumps into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! That keeps the frequencies amped, and Mars, new and first, unfettered in Aquarius the Awakener, is delighted to make the change! It does square Uranus, but that is just more exciting for those two, or a mere flea bite in the bull’s fur! Uranus stays in this preview in Taurus until it retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6 for the rest of the year.

The change into Taurus precedes the second Jupiter trine Neptune. See more. The first Jupiter trine Neptune, big dreams, was while Uranus was in Aries, the sign of new times, action to be taken, leadership. This time the dreams will be Taurus flavored. Like a farmer with the land, steady dawn to dusk, plowing, sowing, watering, feeding, harvesting, providing our food, our dreams will show us how to do these things in all ways in our lives. As in the old song, Bible verse, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. This allowing, patience, the skill to harmonize with natural cycles, will continue to be emphasized because the introductory aspect, the second Jupiter trine Neptune, continues closely until it finishes in summer, August 19! This is a very psychic aspect and will keep us tuned in, precisely. Since it is an easy trine, we may not even notice it, and that is a beautiful trick of the heavens. Sometimes the most profound aspects happen without our really even giving it much thought. One day we just notice we have changed. It just gradually came over us….

Uranus in Aries certainly has brought a ‘revolution’ with the election of Trump. It is a classic reactionary state. Not everyone was in favor of a black president, nor the white woman offered. Too much at once. Financial, medical and age factors have changed and will change more. The environment and animals are being threatened. Those who are working to sustain equal rights – for women, races, sexuality – have their work cut out for them. Many international relationships are suffering. Uranus calls for comm-unity of purpose. Uphill battle. Many are rethinking the true meaning of equality. Young people, high school age, are speaking powerfully and marching, turning the tables. They will be voting age shortly.

Chaos. Uranus rules air. We had tornadoes, hurricanes and the attendant rains and floods. Aries rules fire and dryness. We had severe droughts, and 2017 we had the worst year on record for fires. California has had its worst fire on record. These ‘natural’ events are great equalizers. Rescuers hold no concern for your politics. They are there to help. Re-evolution might be another way to say it. So many have been literally moved from their locations, homes, lifestyle. Why rebuild the past when we can build our future?! Truly a time of great new beginnings! We can help each other learn to live and build sustainably.

Inventions have been extraordinary since 2011/2012 when Uranus entered Aries. Crowdfunding, robotics, drones, self-driving vehicles, work with genomes, reusable rockets, immune engineering, Tesla Autopilot/self driving trucks, reversing paralysis! And those are only a few!

We have been shocked, awakened, made new beginnings! Stay with it!

TAURUS! I don’t know if you can even imagine what Taurus will bring! Instead of rising on Aries rocket fuel, Uranus, the spaceship, is landing! Uranus will be in Taurus until April 25, 2026 electrifying every earthly molecule.

Taurus rules Earth herself. Expect environmental changes. More dramatic climate change and laws about it. Lands and animals will be abused by some, protected by others. Hopefully more people like the Dangermonds, preserving pristine tracts of land, will step up. Please guard Taurus’s tree, the Oak. As we had air and fire turbulence while Uranus was in Aries, Taurus may bring quakes and mudslides, cave ins, volcanic venting. Some will be unceremoniously uprooted. Political changes will be less volatile, but there will be steady progress, important basic rights not forgotten.

Plant genes are already being altered in hopes of making them yield more food and resist drought and disease more effectively.

Taurus rules our bodies, our beauty. Uranus may change standards of attractiveness, more selfies taken, LOL! As in reversing paralysis, disfigurements may be extraordinarily healed. Diseases will be cured and prevented. Taurus is noted for patience, but with Changemaker lightning Uranus there is no standing still, nor patience so much as in the past, yet patience itself may become exceptional. Taurus’s superb strength is being awakened! Respect.

Basic values may undergo serious shifts as we discover more in our world. Some will become practically robots themselves, living through electronics as their only experience. Others may go back to nature, small homes. Communal living may multiply as resources or finances dwindle, or because sustainable living is an ethical choice. There are solar cell inventions that will provide sustainable energy. We are living in majorly changing times!

Taurus is challenged, and challenging to, other fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, fire signs Aries and Sagittarius and air signs Gemini and Libra. Taurus works well with other Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn, and water signs Cancer and Pisces. As the years roll by, factors in your chart will be activated per the degrees Uranus is at that given year.

Stand strong, steady in the Light!

Uranus Retrograde from Taurus back into Aries Nov 6

Aug 7 Uranus goes up to 2 Taurus, a bare glimpse, then retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6. But there will be precognition! Purpose will be established, Aries will look for the best ways to boost the new Taurus work. They will find the best ways to champion their efforts fitting to the cause. There will be potential new technology that will help show the way. Change may be surprisingly sudden. Some of it will be flash in the pan, while others will wake up the sleeping and dead and bring them on board! People you least expected will find their time has come. Really! There will be surprising results as people ignite and heed the last call! It will be 84 years before this transition happens again. Do it!

Uranus’s return to Aries is an eventful TEN days! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event! See more!!!
Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

2018 ends with the Lights ON! Pluto is intensified by the Light, channels the Light! Uranus is in the Aries firelight! A Scorpio New Moon may be dark, but Uranus is lightning and Aries is candles and firelight! This New Moon won’t be so dark as it usually could be. Jupiter in Scorpio might put a temporary shadow on Uranus, but even that wouldn’t daunt Uranus or Aries! Jupiter’s intensity in Scorpio could intrigue them to listen, but both Uranus and Aries function at warp speed, so Jupiter better be right to the point and quick about it! Eye contact will be brief to say the least! When Jupiter gets into his own sign, they will then both be in fire signs, but at opposite ends. Uranus will be at 29 Aries while Jupiter is at 0 degrees Sagittarius. They will make no further connections while Uranus is in Aries.

Fire signs represent courage and inspiration! Pluto, Uranus and Saturn in Earth signs are physical and practical, get it done. Perfect.

Feb 18, 2019, Chiron returns to Aries while Uranus is still in Aries. This is the second and last time they will both be traveling in Aries, 16 days, until March 6, 2019,  when Uranus returns to Taurus. This is their final exchange, sharing tips, thanking and wishing each other well. Uranus leaves Taurus for Gemini 2025-26.

In 20 years, the next sign they will travel together in is Cancer. Each of three times it will be for several months, 2038/39, again in 2039, and last in 2040.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” John F Kennedy  [3 planets Taurus, Uranus in its own sign Aquarius]

Aries, Bright Blessings

Aries Bicycle Transit System Hardwicke

Toronto Architect Chris Hardwicke wants to do something about it! In 2006 he proposed “a high speed, all season, pollution free, ultra-quiet transit system that makes people healthier. Using an infrastructure of elevated cycle tracks, velo-city creates a network across the City.” It saves transportation costs. No flood, no mud! No ice! Safety from cars. Details! Current comparisons

Lead the way, Aries! We are happy to follow! If it’s new, let’s do it! Take a quick breath, a happy shout, and off we go! Alone or together! To work or for pleasure!

No sitting around; if you think it, do it! Aries are often lean and strong. They eat less and are more active, or eat more and are even more active! Envy.

Aries are quick to create solutions, especially if they are mechanical. They easily fix their own bikes on the road. They are the first to help and the first there! Because they are first, they learn a lot about how to be there in any and all conditions. They are swift to assess, adjust quickly as things change. Emergencies are their specialty whether in the boardroom or on the road.

They are downright brilliant and inspirational! Your only spiritual duty is to keep up or let them go! They need to be physical. Independent. That all can be tough on relationships. There needs to be a ton of respect that goes both ways. Better to have that 6 month engagement than the impetuous marriage that imprisons one or both of you. Yes they are impressive, but that doesn’t mean you can have one. But if you can, what a ride! They will get you on your feet in no time!

Sometimes they can get there faster on their bike than you can drive there! In this world today, sustainability is essential. Less pollution. Lower costs – no auto insurance, gas costs, expensive auto maintenance. Lower cost of living for greater numbers of elders. Much better health for active people with less health costs, more productive time. Get clean air up your nose, oxygenate your brain, get your blood moving! Or gear up on that stationary bike at home! There are so many kinds of bikes these days! Lightweight, skinny tires/fat tires, shopping bikes with carrying devices for groceries, kids, grandkids! Fold-up space savers to take traveling, treadles, tricycles for elders, electric! Many cities now have networks of safe bike lanes, bike stations with showers and storage for commuters with repair services available. Ride your bike!

Financially, Aries may be here and gone, a crack consultant! They come in with fresh eyes and because they get around and are experienced, they have solutions that work, adjusted perfectly to your needs, and can be implemented quickly, often for low cost. They may instantly see the value of startups and get in on the ground floor. Innovative businesses catch their eye; they may be starting one themselves! If you are following their lead but are more conservative, put in a trial amount to see how it goes. If it’s on, add more! Some Aries like heat and call the shots as fine chefs – baking, amazing meals, truly one of a kind. Or you might see them delivering freight or compost on their special freight bike, or racing at top speed as a city bicycle messenger or taking people on astonishing bike tours all over the world! Awesome!

Yes, I’ve said a lot about bikes here. Just take this healthy template and pop yourself or your dear Aries into it and change the scenario a bit. Main things are being energetic and innovative! Being the leader! Using your intelligence quickly!

Prevention and protests may show the courage an Aries brings to bear. They see the need to keep some things from happening, or assure the progress of others. They are no strangers to the front line. They are clever and innovative with slogans and posters.

Now if we do talk about health matters when things go south, I recommend wearing safe clothing and a helmet! Bumping your head is an Aries matter. Don’t take chances with your Aries kids! Yes, you have to wear a helmet. I love you. Headaches do happen, high fevers can come quickly. Blood may be involved, cuts, road rash, scrapes. Carry bandages. Safety glasses for fiery or dangerous work like soldering fine jewelry. Treat your eyes well when outdoors, maybe good shades. Avoid stimulants, hot spicy foods and alcohol. You already have high energy and at times a temper. Get rest, eat more slowly. Carry that water bottle and stay hydrated!

The worst malaise is if they lose their Spirit. That’s sad to see. Give them some time, get them out when you can. Take them places where things that might inspire them are happening. They will usually be back pretty quickly. Could be time for a new bike or off road vehicle. You see, they are generally not people who go chronic. It’s quick, fierce, and over, back on their feet. Good to know that few Aries are into addictions. Who has time?

Aries can be extraordinarily romantic, and sometimes it’s quick! Exciting to say the least! You may be swept off your feet by your hero/heroine! It is so worth the adventure!

Aries 2018 Celestial Highlights!

April 2 Mars conjunct Saturn!

4.2.18 Mars conjunct Saturn, Antares Jupiter Moon

Thanks to EarthSky’s Bruce McClure!

Early risers! 90 minutes before dawn will do it! Mars conjuncts Saturn on April 2, Mars passes a rather scant 1.3o south of Saturn. Find the Moon, draw a line through bright Jupiter, to find reddish Mars and golden Saturn. You will see them with the Constellation Scorpio, Antares its brightest star. Look to the left in Scorpio to see the Cat eyes, Shaula and Lesath!

Outer Planet Transits with Aries 2018 – April 2019!

Aries Road Trip National Parks Utah Spectacular Rt 12

What is more better than a spring road trip to start your new year?! Take Utah Route 12 winding between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon national parks. The 124-mile strip has funky small towns, steep sandstone canyons and bluffs of purple sage. Tackle the narrow cliff-hanging ridgeline road called The Hogback. Stop at Hell’s Backbone Grill, which has its own organic farm!

We are now, since Nov 11, on our way to the fourth aspect of a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018! Jupiter sextile Pluto has a strong focus since they are traveling closely together now through April!

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Aries’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 and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifts 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. 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!

Things are HOT this Aries mid April as Chiron makes the first sign change, into ARIES!  Jupiter sextiles Pluto April 14. The next day Mercury in ARIES turns forward from retrograde, the New Moon is in ARIES the same day! Chiron makes its switch April 17! Not only is it hot, but it is an intense closely spaced sequence! Put on your dancing shoes! Let’s roll! And this is only the beginning! Apropos for Aries!

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!

Aries is generally no whiner. They may complain when they are slowed down or something gets in their way. But they can quickly sidestep an dodge. But Pluto in Capricorn may entirely anticipate that. Aries and Capricorn don’t always get along smoothly. The project has to be more important than their egos. Aries and Pluto can be at odds. Aries generally does not sneak around and Pluto is the best at it. However, if you want to catch ’em coming and going, this pair can do it! Aries is the baby, the initiate, a younger with the freshest Spirit. Fuddy duddy elder behavior dampens their innovative adventures. And Cappies want to get the job done on time, mostly by the book. Ok. Ok. If Capricorn’s mentoring can help Aries get that adventure going smoothly and successfully, Aries is grateful. Give your Aries plenty of praise! After all, you couldn’t get those new things added to your repertoire and done without them! Together they can bring it home, well done, in jig time!

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 17 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. If anyone can call them back, here comes Aries, with infectious Light, a keen spirited way, undaunted. Up on your feet, try this, let’s go here, and has one idea after another worth pursuing. If nothing else, it’s entertaining! But next thing you know you are happy to go with them. Natural leaders! What you dream, they find a way to DO! Neptune/Pisces can dampen things, and that’s not always bad. Too fiery and people feel blasted or burned and back away, of course. Neptune is so sensitive, use them like a canary in the coal mine. Adjust your volume to a more gentle level. If Neptune can step up with you, you can step down a bit. More syncopatic.

Uranus covers 26 Aries to 2 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 a 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!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Air sign Aquarius may find Taurus earth a little heavy. The Bull is big and on the ground. Earth as a medium is perhaps more a collector of goods than Aquarius flying lightly over the land. Earth is dense compared to air. It’s a slowdown, a filter. But soil organisms need oxygen to function. AQ is about as complex as it gets, multileveled. Taurus will call for usefulness in daily living. Mother Earth will need her champions, for land, water, the trees that breathe for us, and rare exotic animals. AQ can do the job, plying the computer, organizing banking and funds, gathering groups of groups for the greater good. Temps may lower a bit, but be earthquake prepared. Pick safe places to live and do business.

Aries is fascinated by these shifts. A more independent lifestyle may be in the offing. Farmers, foodies, have always been independent. More new ways will be found on how to feed people. Protecting sacred Earth places and her resources will call Aries to stand for her. Aries will be letting people know more about living in harmony with earth changes, and how to place structures, build sustainably will be a perfect challenge. Young people today will see the possibilities. Elders will be swept along and be glad for it!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 28 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries initiates. Chiron enters 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 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! Aries can be impatient with the Chiron concerns, Pisces fears or sensitivities. Or inspired with the healer’s visions and ready to fight for them! Aries may call upon the intuitive insights, be guided by them. Aries may realize there is value in observation and contemplation, but Aries quick action in the moment is what we count on!

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will be Aries’ turn to be happy there is a Dr in the house! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! The Doctor is coming and Aries is right beside him or leading the way! They are in instant harmony. If Aries needs healing, they will get right too it and Aries will be happily on his way. Innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. 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 now through April 2019. 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 April 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 challenges and is challenged by fiery Aries! But then Aries loves a challenge, though this one is more than five minutes! Saturn is the old guard, the elders, the ones in authority. Aries, however, just keeps coming back, not especially afraid of seemingly invincible powers, not taking ‘No’ for an answer! Saturn does have some time tested working points that Aries comes to appreciate and respect. If Saturn’s goals are ones Aries can get behind, Aries will lead the way, clear the path, make connections to bring it through. If Saturn controls too much, a younger Aries’ spirit may be crushed. There are limits. Guidance, to let them do as they need to be themselves, to do it well, to support rather than block, has sweet results. And Aries too needs to learn working limits. Pushing the right amount, in the right places, at the right time pays off, and Saturn is the Master!

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 friendly to fire sign Aries. Aries is upfront; Scorpio usually works more behind the scenes unless they in their boardroom! Aries can be their point man, one they can count on for a quick rescue, or the one they silently groan about when they see, that battles them every inch of the way. Aries may think of Jupiter in Scorpio as the big shadow that could steal their life, or know that teaching and healing are available where you might have least expected it. If Jupiter hits a mean streak in Scorpio, it might be wise to avoid them, stand back, wait for change to come from another direction. Sometimes you just can’t do it all yourself. If your causes are the same, see how you can fit in to help. Jupiter sees the benefit of many fronts and resources. An innocent Aries may be shocked and inspired at the same time when they see how things work behind the scenes. It’s a bigger world than we thought! Their toolbox is expanded.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, and Aries can have a great time! They can travel together, Jupiter taking Aries further afield! Jupiter may take the train, Aries brings their bikes to use at the destinations! Spontaneous play and Aries may lead the way! Aries is into prowess while Jupiter figures out what things mean, where they fit in the world, enriching Aries’ point of view, raising their standards. They may travel in behalf of a philosophy they mutually support, or to a remote temple. Jupiter loves to teach and Aries does by showing how it’s done! Each are generally quite healthy. Any dangers and Jupiter’s luck comes into play while Aries dashes safely out of the way. Relationships come and go like the flash fire signs have! Sagittarius wants to be free to go, and Aries loves their independence. Love these handsome and beautiful people while you can. You will be inspired and find more time to frolic! Oh, yes.

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.

Capricorn - Switzerland's Lara Gut Skiing

Switzerland’s Lara Gut skis during the women’s alpine skiing Super G competition at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center February 15, 2014. REUTERS/Dominic Ebenbichler

Saturn’s sign change is profoundly preceded by Sunday December 17’s New Moon, new beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific, at 26 Sagittarius 31, the Galactic Center! See more!
Three days after Saturn enters Capricorn, Dec 22 Mercury’s Sagittarius RETROGRADE ends! Mercury turns forward, Direct 5:51 PM Pacific. So Saturn’s entry into Capricorn this time is meant to reconsider many options, stay flexible. See more!

Fittingly, it’s just two days before Winter Solstice, Sun into Capricorn! Saturn readies itself for its own special time of year by jumping into its own sign, a double Capricorn effect! Goats love that jumping thing and they often have very steady footing, daring to go where no one even wants to go, even ice climbing! While some bears are napping in the dark, others are out on the slopes racing at top speed, invigorated, cold air rushing by, down to the bottom, then ready to go back to the top and do it again! Ice skating is an inspiring skill! If you think Capricorn is a stodgy old sign, think again! Winter has its own kind of excitement!

After the frolic is over, it is sweet time having a hearty meal with friends, sitting by the fire, sharing grog and stories of journeys and of having overcome amazing challenges. One by one, people go off to their rooms, maybe you are left with reminiscing, going over what you will do differently next time. Images stream by. A stretch and it’s time to rest for another brilliant crisp day. As much as Saturn is a hard worker, and play can be hard work, Saturn makes you know it’s good to take time for yourself. We need those between times.

On the ground, Saturn in Capricorn are expert at building sustainable homes that will last forever, be well lived in for the right price! Remarkable features might be beautiful stained glass windows, skylights, strong timbers, special insulation. Landscaping may include reclaimed fencing, skillful terracing and artful stonework installations. Restoration and renovation are natural for them. Utilities are low and sustainably rendered.

Between nature’s laws and the rules for safe construction, Saturn and Capricorn have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. They are good at law enforcement, often take on a parental role, position of CEO, the boss. Chores may be important and no driving a car before your time or going out with ones older than you! Saturn might find us setting more clear boundaries for ourselves. We may become more clear how much time things take. Saturn with money planets or locations may require a strict budget. The other side of the coin is finances thrive, payback for long term hard work well done!

Saturn in Capricorn will likely bring more responsibilities to many who thought they couldn’t handle anymore! They may find themselves doing more than they ever expected, maybe even being asked to be the boss! Some will be pleased to find themselves doing quite well. Do negotiate a good salary, additional salary or a percent of the take. Others may find they need to back off and lighten the load. Chronic ailments sometimes stem from being too tired, tired all the time. Your body is not able to recover. As you get older, take that nap!

Knees may become important. Bending and proper surrender is a life skill. Overtaxing them has consequences. Bones and joints can only take so much stress. Don’t take yourself to the breaking point. Skin can suffer. Keep your pantry stocked with good quality food for road closed situations. Keep your body warm so you can get good rest.

In childhood, young Capricorns often have health challenges, but get super strong with age! They may be quite serious, but become cleverly funny, have a subtle wit, are truly funny comedians! Capricorn rules age. They are down to earth with a real smile when it comes. They deal with things as they happen and are often reliable to their friends even when they are down themselves. Saturn may bring some health cures, better living conditions and benefits for elders.

Saturn will reassesses relationships. Cappies take their relationships seriously. When they make a commitment their preference is to loyally keep it. Sometimes they stay too long. The other person may ‘need’ them. It has become a habit to suffer. They think it’s their fault. I’m no quitter. If I work hard enough and be a good person things will change. I’m too old to do this. Ok. Some of that may be true, but it doesn’t mean it will necessarily make it better. Take good care of yourself and talk with good solution oriented friends, advisors or counselors. If none of that is happening for you, wonderful! Keep letting your partner know how much you love them and are grateful they are in your life! They are lucky to have you!

SATURN RETURNS Saturn will be in Capricorn from Dec 19, 2017 and Dec 16, 2020. At the end of that time, Saturn will advance into Aquarius then retrograde back into Capricorn for awhile. If your Saturn is late Capricorn, check with your astrologer to see exactly when your Return is. Saturn was last in Capricorn 1988-91.

First Saturn Returns are at age 28/29. The second is about age 58. They can be serious. At age 28/29, many start lifelong careers, get significant promotions, get married, buy a house and the first child is on the way! For some, there can be hardships that cause delays and expected dreams never do come true. The Great Spirit has other plans for you. For some a Return may not even be a blip on the radar ’cause all’s well. 58 happens either way as well. There may be a second chance, retirement, a whole new tack in life! However it is, it will be Capricorn style.

CAPRICORN WITH OTHER SIGNS

Capricorn is the third and last of the Earth signs. The fertile lowlands and meadows, farms, are Taurus domain. Virgo tends the plants and animals, does superb property management, cleans the houses, is nanny to the children. Capricorn views them from that breathtaking hillside building they built, or from the high rise top floor, penthouse suite!

Earth signs generally get along with Water signs, but not always. Saturn/Cap is a hard worker. Pisces not so much. If the surf is up, they’re gone. If the business is music/film it can be a downright magical combination! Cancer and Cap are both highly interested in financial security, a good home for the family, family lineage, good jobs, long term relationships. Cap needs to consider their feelings, spend time with them. Scorpio is not only interested in superior financial commitments and insurance, a secure domain and business, but also needs dedicated and devoted relationships – both personal and business. Scorpio also wants your good health – state of mind and body. Capricorn is right on board with all that. Capricorn deeply values longevity and a history of success and integrity.

Saturn and Capricorn challenge the other Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer and LibraAries is boss allergic, independent to a fault! They are innovative rather than obedient. They want to be first! Cap needs to give them room to maneuver. Cancers like a supportive mothering relationship, consideration of their feelings. Saturn/Cap is sometimes just all business. Either do the job now or come back when you can. They don’t have time for this, get someone else. And maybe they are right. Let it go and get work more to your Spirit. At home, Cap, make time for the family and don’t talk business at that special time. They love you. Libra is social and wants you to be polite. Cap can be so to the point they are brusque with no amenities. Libra may be caught crying in the restroom. If Libra wasn’t such a good front person and so artistic, Cap might send them packing in a minute. If your boss is a Sat/Cap type, see if they balance their sometimes lack of manners with respect and acknowledge your good work. Cap, do a little thinking first. It may be quite worth those extra moments.

That leaves Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and Air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Leo can be a little flamboyant, which often warms that Caps heart as they can walk proud with such a glamourous Being! Sagittarius is hard to pin down since they love to travel so much, so unless it’s a travel business they do together, Cap doesn’t feel they are reliable. Gemini just keeps Cap spinning. The information better be good and succinctly given or they are banished! Aquarius was born to break rules and Sat/Cap lives for rules. However, if they are collaborating in a community organization, it works!

If you are older than 28/29, wherever Saturn is in your birth chart right now is where it was 28/29 years ago! Do know that the other planets are NOT where they were 28/9 years ago, so there will be some the same and a lot not! Each of your houses or sections of your chart have special purpose. Whatever ways Saturn is aspecting planets or factors in your chart, it is often memorable, sometimes profound.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Mercury Retrograde Sagittarius Sauk Mountain Switchbacks

Sauk Mountain Trail Switchbacks, Rockport Washington 1,100′ Elevation gain

This is the last Mercury Retrograde of 2017! The next one will be in March 2018 in Aries, another fire sign! Revisions will be spirited! Last Rx, Leo/Virgo, I touted as the most significant of 2017 due to the US Total Solar Eclipse during the Rx and all the New & Full Moon connections! This one is important because it hosts Saturn’s 29 year sign connection with the Galactic Center, and its change from Sagittarius into its own sign Capricorn! Mercury guides us across this threshold, stirring things up so we see the living process of Father Time’s sign change.

While Saturn is still in Sagittarius, it is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER, 26 Sagittarius, Nov 15 to 23! The Mercury Rx cycles starts Nov 15, so for the first 8 days of the Rx cycle, it is a time of ‘huge infusion,’ the portal to and through the Galaxy and beyond is available! And, the Nov 18 Scorpio New Moon makes us a more sensitive receiver, deepens our perceptions. Dec 17 the Sun makes its annual conjunction with the GC, but this time its the Sagittarius New Moon, Moon and Sun, AT the GC! Since it is during Mercury retrograde, it performs some kind of a retrieval, a remembrance, revives something that must be updated, regathered and not left behind.

In those 8 days Saturn is at the GC, Mercury is 13 to 24 degrees Sagittarius. Mercury will recross those degrees twice more, retrograde Dec 10-22, then when forward Dec 22 to Jan 6, finishing the Mercury Rx cycle. Mercury will itself conjunct the GC 3 times – Nov 26/27, Rx Dec 8 and Jan 7/8, 2018. At the times Mercury is in the degrees it was at when Saturn was at the GC, and when Mercury conjuncts the GC, take special time to check in, be more alert to signs. Ask that the highest be done and that you be shown how to get there, whether it is personal or for the world. Blessed be.

Switchbacks, retrogrades, make it easy to get up the mountain, make it possible! This Rx is in Sagittarius, and Sagittarius would surely be going up as the ascending arrow, its sign symbol, indicates. You do need to be careful that you don’t kick rocks off the trail, as there are often others below you.

As you ascend, the Sagittarian view just keeps getting bigger, more expansive, inclusive. You get a picture of the layout of the land and where the people are. You make adjustments in your thinking and attention. Unless you have been on that trail before, it’s still a guess if the next rise is the top or a false top with more yet to go. At the top it can be exhilarating, even if it is plenty hot, or cold as all get out plus a dangerous icy wind and slippery! Sometimes it’s a languishing picnic, fill-your-eyes rest stop, pictures of all directions, poses of prowess! Other times it’s a quick snap, we made it, let’s get down outta here! But you did it!

Use retrogrades fully by being alert, open to the broader view, new opportunities. As with mountain hikes, there are new visions around the corner, greater options possible, because the other planets keep right on moving, while Mercury is refreshing the screen and thinking things through. One step leads to another. Things absolutely do change! They are supposed to.

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Nov 15 at 13 Sag. Mercury goes up to 29 Sag, the very end of Sag, and retrogrades Dec 2, back to 13. He then turns forward, direct, Dec 22, the day after Winter Solstice (Saturn newly in Capricorn as of Dec 19) and goes back to 29 Sag on Jan 10, 2018, crosses the threshold into Capricorn that very day, and continues on into the New Year.

The Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sag and Pisces will be challenged. Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn prefer things stable and steady, but they are not exempt. Other fire, Aries and Leo, and air signs, Libra and Aquarius, will enjoy the shifts and changes! Mercury will midpoint sextile connect with Libra and Aquarius acting as their go between, plugging in astounding ideas just as fast as they can take them in. Have a party with all your Libra, Sag and AQ friends!

If the retrograde connects with your chart, here are some good tips!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – with Sag, that especially means vehicles, travel conveyances and image devices – cameras, video, telescopes, cell phones. Get new apps well in advance, and learn to use them with ease. Be sure traveling companions have all their shots, including your pets. Have your schedule handy. Keep your goals in mind, though don’t be surprised if they suddenly change directions!

During the retrograde, keep irreplaceable valuables with you. No stowing with your luggage in the hold. No important papers tossed in the backseat because you are in a hurry. Keep your keys in mind, slow down and don’t lock them in the car! You could temporarily put them on a tether device around your neck – glasses too. Mercury Rx is famous for losing things, though sometimes something lost in the last Rx turns up in the current one! Don’t forget to immediately change your appt book the minute an adjustment is made in your timing. Call in advance to be certain you are scheduled and at the time you think the appt is. Scout about for paperwork needed at least the day before. Do get people to sign things that need to be signed, including yourself! Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done Jan 10!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Sagittarians believe in big and better, but due to no fault of their own, things change and the deal can’t be made after all. They didn’t lie, they just didn’t know. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.  However, if one falls through, an even better one can happen! One just clears the way or leads to the next!

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas go up in flames, especially in Sagittarius, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at what you are left with, polish it, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and invite those people traveling your way. Hear them all out and merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

There are three important outer planet factors during this Retrograde cycle! That’s not common since outer planets move more slowly. Here’s the timetable:

RETROGRADE starts Dec 2 the same day as Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, trines Neptune. It is considered a Dreams-come-true aspect, travel and Soul healing. A good time to consult the Oracle’s Oracle, yet with Mercury starting his journey, all will not come out as predicted! Mercury in Sagittarius can lead Scorpio on, both can be a bit of tricksters. Mercury by nature, ruling Virgo, is opposite Pisces. Mercury co-rules Gemini, square Pisces, and in Sagittarius square Pisces, reports may be difficult to confirm, and even if confirmed, are not solid indicators. And yet Jupiter trine Neptune is considered wondrous, capable of significant miracles and psychic! Go eyes open, trust your core.

To add to it, the Dec 3 Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon follows the next day! Gemini Moon sees a thousand facets; Sun in Sagittarius tries to gather them to a focus. Moon is intuitional and she knows when things are not in divine order in communications. She can be protective of the information held close to her bosom though Sag tries to tease her to tell. Mercury has two signs, Gemini is one. So he now in Sagittarius opposite Gemini, is at his most extensive range, with the Sun, is also circling for clues. Another scenario might be Sag is a bit opinionated; Moon floods him with ideas and data that alter his point of view. Moon provides vital information; Sagittarius takes it with him for upleveling, pondering as he goes. Mercury observes the exchange, new chapters will be written!

Saturn changes the game by leaving Sagittarius and going into his own sign Capricorn December 19 3 days before the Retrograde ends! That’s during the 8 day Rx/Direct (forward) station when Mercury appears to ‘stand still’ in the sky. There is a holding tank of information, a focus, a concentration of thought, an anchoring of ideas. With Saturn in Cap a serious tone descends. More is expected. It’s not just fun and contemplation. Things need to get done, responsibilities taken, papers signed. Saturn builds strong, expects you to exceed your past. They will help you if they can. Winter Solstice adds the Sun into Capricorn the day before Mercury turns Direct (out of Rx). Mercury instantly senses the shift and knows he needs to backup his hopes with solid evidence if possible to carry on, cross the breach, be in sync with the tidal shift.

At first he may not seem to catch on or keep up because he is in Station, standing still, 4 days before and after the turn point. He’s absorbing, assimilating, focusing, anchoring the plans. At this sacred time of Winter Solstice, the longest Nights, Mercury’s ideas and thinking patterns will be deepened, fortified. No matter how much Saturn may want Mercury on board, the plans that have been made, after much consideration, are not to be abandoned. Mercury will be holding the Sag Light until Jan 10, when he crosses the line into Capricorn to join Saturn.

The three part cycle finishes the same day Mercury joins Saturn in Capricorn Jan 10. Mercury conjuncts Saturn Jan 12, Jupiter sextiles Pluto Jan 15! When it’s done, it’s done! Mercury, the Communicator, now out of Sag and in Capricorn, can present his ideas to Saturn in the way Saturn can understand since his sign is Capricorn! It will be up front and personal Jan 12 when they are together. Jupiter sextile Pluto wants volumes of healing, both personal, as couples and business partners. Jupiter knows when he has a tough room, yet he is amazing at telling the funny story and making them laugh anyway. He also knows when trust is an issue. Now in Scorpio, Jupiter knows about Pluto only too well. And Pluto in Capricorn is rarely fooled or made to do anything he doesn’t want to. Mercury is intrigued by seeing Jupiter at work, and may offer Jupiter some data to help his presentation, request. Mercury may offer Pluto some quick but pivotal advice, and bingo, Pluto is on board and it’s a good deal!

Mercury repeats aspects to Saturn and Uranus….

Throughout the cycle, Mercury trines Uranus three times! Mercury is the thinking process; Uranus is considered to be higher mind, how to join many souls, worldwide networks to promote both rational and etheric thought. Mercury in Sagittarius expands principles of attention and expression to intrigue Souls to gather ’round! Already the process is started by coaching by example as thoughts are shared and upleveled, hope instilled, having a steady outlook. Uranus is the Light and Sound waves that carry group thought around the world, brings R/Evolution. It invents options like the Internet, and planes, and one day we will have teleportation. Let your mind shift freely. Tune in.

Mercury does conjunct Saturn three times. The first two are in Sagittarius, but the third, however, is in Capricorn two days after the Mercury Rx cycle is complete! While in Sag, Mercury consults with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, then, because Saturn changes signs mid Rx, Mercury completes the conjunctions when Saturn is at his full power! First Mercury speculates in Sag, then after all is said and done, commits to the chosen Path in Capricorn. He works hard gathering data so choices will be informed, no time wasted. Mercury is not always serious, sometimes mischievous, but in Capricorn he focuses as it life depended on it, and sometimes it does! Blessed be.

Mercury aspecting Saturn and Uranus, triggers awareness of how precious our commitments are and how much we need freedom too. Saturn holds us together and stabilizes our communities, at times our very survival. Uranus invites innovation, change, evolution, sometimes on a large scale with far reaching effects! Networking, connection is a potent and necessary life force, sometimes uniting us internationally. Intentionally we can breathe together collectively, securing our survival in the future as well!

Sagittarius, this Mercury retrograde’s sign, is a student, a teacher, traveler of mind and body, has long term purpose in mind, great faith in the future. Confidence abounds, risks are taken and often succeed! They are super storytellers, often published!  Sagittarius will hold the compass and keep us on course. Even if they lose the compass, they were born with directional instinct. Trust it. When it all seems too much, they will tell stories of heroes and heroines and hope is restored! They speak of the achievement of our dreams, what that will look like. We are guided to make the best choices to get us there, step by step we go on. Walk the Path together.
