New SuperMoon!  Saturn square Chiron, Mercury, GALACTIC CENTER!

Wednesday April 26, 5:16 AM Pacific at 6 Taurus 27! 

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

Hang onto your socks, Earthlings! In celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009, NASA’s Great Observatories — the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy! This image takes up about 1 degree across the sky. The Galactic Center is the white area to the right just below center.

First of four 2017 supermoons, a new supermoon! The new moons on April 26, May 25 and June 24 all qualify as supermoons. Tides are higher. Spirits have more volume! In Taurus that can mean more need for closeness, candles and romance, good food and lots of it, or an urge to secure our resources! We might exercise more or start a New Moon plan to do so!

This Taurus New Moon opens gentle doors to breaking down the barriers of the April 30 Saturn square Chiron healing. Chiron doesn’t always want healing, or give up secrets of the healing arts easily. Not all healing is comfortable as we let go, shift our lives, make adjustments. Sometimes we lose close relationships. Careers and businesses ventures may be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Recovery can be hard work, but we step out of the crucible over the threshold, a new person, no longer vulnerable to that old condition. Taurus can be the calming balm, soothing. It gives us fortitude, patience, determination to best the odds, endure until we are able to stand up again, to live in better ways.

Saturn in Sagittarius is retrograde, going back to make his second trine with Uranus May 18! An old Master, he is experienced, he knows that Uranian change is smart evolution, inevitable. It is a relief to old stunted stilted tired thinking. It frees us to a greater range of ideas, opportunities made more whole by a multitude of community contribution! The gains are so more worth it than the cost of the change to make them! Long term payoffs. Productive friends and associates. Sciences flourish.

Mercury is retrograding as well, going back to conjunct Uranus! In Aries it is fireworks and inspiration like never before! Every person is spontaneously independently giving their part! This is an outspoken crowd! Saturn in Sagittarius, trining them both, has important serious opinions. Uranus is the rebel ahead of his time, Aries is the volatile Leader of Light, Mercury is the Word – in this case shouted! I suspect the April 29 Climate March will have super impact!

The GALACTIC CENTER figures strongly in our New Moon chart! Saturn is at 27 Sagittarius, one degree of the GC! Yes, he squares Chiron, but also trines Uranus at 25 Aries, and Mercury at 26 Aries, they in lucky trine with the GC! Uranus, ruling the heavens, IS our galactic planet, and Mercury of mind is considered exalted in Uranus’s sign Aquarius. Mercury with Uranus is positively brilliant! Ideas ahead of their time, research that amazes the world. Mercury wants to talk, download! Probably intergalactic at this point! Just tune the dial! Speech, communications are emphasized! It can be gibberish to genius, higher learning in progress. Breathless with keen excitement, electrified fingers reach out to touch! We are alive and transforming ourselves and others at once!

Mercury is retrograde in Aries. Though fast in Aries, Mercury retrograde is also reviewing, turning it’s thoughts, going over what was done, might have been missed, what to do, how to do it better and be more to the point until May 3! He turns forward then and definitely puts things into action, trials and finishing details until he enters Taurus again May 15. From then on there needs to be visible progress. Aries is mind; Taurus is matter. Make time to think and be ready to use the ideas you have now for good results to come.

Mercury and Mars, the planet of Aries, are in mutual reception, in each other’s signs. With one eye over the shoulder, the other looking straight ahead, right between your eyes, sequences are instantly understood. With Mars in Gemini, the vision is all encompassing, scans are comprehensive and as fast as a blink! Trust your flash of insight; it is gifted. Quickly document all aspects with as many outlets as possible so there will be as much distribution and continuance as possible. Breathe out the Word!

In the beginning it will take many Souls to carry all the parts of this great body of knowledge. Each one will need to be free and independent enough to do their part. Each part needs to be protected until it is anchored while still pure. It is important that these Light Workers remain unclouded by popular thought.

These aspects lend an empowering background and meaning to the New Moon. At 6 Taurus, the New Moon makes no major aspects yet is vitally important to being a part of the fabric of the greater scenario. She acts as an unobstructed channel. Taurus stands in strength, able to support and sustain the platform for the massive amount of information that is coming through. Impeccable.

There are three planets in spiritual PiscesNeptune, Pisces’ planet, Chiron the Healer/Teacher, and Venus, herself at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac! At this time, these three hold the shimmering living vision that permeates our Being. Art and beauty, music, attract us, keep us tuned to deeper knowing. Neptune calls for compassion. Chiron repairs our sorrows and Soul, boosts us to the next level with its teaching.

Venus holds a special point not only because she is at the last degree of the zodiac, but she is at the degree of the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters! The Zuni of New Mexico call the Pleiades the Seed Stars; the Japanese call them Subaru, meaning ‘unite.’ They are in the shoulder of the bull, the TAURUS constellation, and Taurus is one of Venus’ signs! Alcyone is their main star. You can imagine what kind of troubles could ensue due to 7 sisters! Venus is susceptible to greed, envy, possessiveness, selfishness and self indulgence. On the other hand, 7 feminine forces to your favor wouldn’t be all bad, LOL! Can you imagine the strength in the shoulder of the Bull?!! Venus is a proponent of the arts, love and kindness, self esteem, clear values, and attracts money!

In a few days Venus concludes her mission here, goes into Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, Friday the 28th, 6:18 AM Pacific. Minutes later, Mercury then conjuncts Uranus in Aries at 7:50 AM! A feisty and zesty morning! Go to breakfast with your confidants and colleagues! Ask for their support with your causes; give yours to theirs as you can.

The Second Labor of Hercules

Alone and still filled with deep distress, Hercules must rescue a sacred bull [Taurus] from its intended sacrifice to Minos, King of Crete and deliver it to the mainland. On the island, where the bull is captive, is a vast maze, which can lure the adventurous to their bewilderment. Here, following the gleaming star shining from its forehead, Hercules pursues the bull from place to place. Single-handed, he captures it and rides it like a horse through the waters to the mainland, surrounded by the seven Sisters [Pleiades constellation]. He leads it to the Holy Place and delivers it safely to its guardians.

Today, the goal is attained through group effort. This group is ruled by Taurus, and to it that divine Taurian energy brings ‘illumination and the attainment of the vision’. This group is, figuratively speaking, the ‘bull, rushing forward upon a straight line with its one eye fixed upon the goal and beaming light’. That goal is not the goal of Self-illumination, for that lies far behind; it is the goal of providing a centre of light within the world and of holding up the vision to the sons of wo/men.  …excerpted and paraphrased from Lucis Trust

This is the annual merger of Moon and Sun in Taurus. Let it be your abiding guide. Center, focus, stay strong in your core. You may not be Hercules, but each of us is a point of Light. Keep it burning exactly your special way.

Full Flower Moon!
Wesak, Buddha’s Birthday!
Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Saturn trine Uranus!
Galactic Center, Scorpio – Pluto & Mars trine Jupiter!

Wednesday May 10, 2:42 PM Pacific at 20 Scorpio 24

Taurus - Woman Buddha Full Moon

Be your own Buddha!

The Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon opens our wings to the May 17/18 companion aspects, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus!

Optimistic Jupiter in Libra visions as far off in time and space as it can! Neptune IS time and space, boundless. An inconjunct aspect invites exploration, peripheral vision, a detour to another dimension! Diversions, distractions and divisions. It can seem things are out of control, but comparisons are made, sensitivity is registered. Jupiter instinctively looks for the best. At any given time things only go so far as new cloaks are able to be tried on. Go lightly as options are considered. Rather than immediate stern defenses, ask questions and invite answers. There may be confusion that seems like mindlessness, but things get sorted out in time. If it is an emergency, stamp your foot and get everyone back to center focus ASAP!

Saturn makes the trine with Uranus May 18. He is the planet of time, age, wisdom earned by experience. Saturn employs boundaries for prevention and protection, regulates flow and distribution. Uranus is the planet of freedom, inevitable evolution, sweeping change, the heavens, sudden shifts of consciousness! There are no boundaries! Saturn linked with Uranus by a trine of success, can ride the plane, shift to different levels of awareness, bring the information home and put the amazing inventions to work for all! Universal blessings. Saturn sees the reality of change and picks what will work most usefully in current times. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The whole system is advanced fortuitously. Remarkable!

Neither of these aspects may happen with flashing lights, but soon enough, here and there, results will become evident and the tide will change. What once were isolated outposts become networked teams. A less volatile resistance, more practical posture will be taken as new ideas, cultural integration, proves to work.

What does POP is that Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius May 8 to June 1, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our Milky Way Galaxy! If you are so lucky to have factors within a degree or two of that number, what a mighty potential there can be if you are ready for it! Sagittarius usually does well with Aries and Leo, Libra and Aquarius, sometimes Gemini.

Moon Scorpio, Sun Taurus! What a mighty combo, fixed signs. Taurus, of Earth herself, immovable, organic, substantial. Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld with all his secrets. How can you change what you can’t see? Both are senses oriented, Taurus sensuality, Scorpio sexuality! Taurus holds position, anchors, while Scorpio ignites the Kundalini fire at the base of your spine! If you can’t see it, maybe you can feel it!

It may be a delicate situation. The huge red giant star Aldebaran holds the fire in the right eye of the Bull! If Taurus pushes, Scorpio retreats. Scorpio tries to circle around behind, but Taurus has always lived in the pasture and senses predator presence. And with their Taurus outwaiting solidarity, hooves and horns, they don’t be pushed much either. Scorpio’s star is Antares, also reddish, and has the cat eyes, Shaula and Lesath, in its tail! A scorpion may be small, but can be deadly and accurate. Powerful guardians. As a therapist they can change your life with few to no words at all! Symbolically Scorpio sees over, within, behind and beyond – the Past, current status, consequences of your actions. If your Taurus-Scorpio union has a mutual purpose, use each other’s powers wisely toward your goal. Let the rest be.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto in Capricorn! It’s the power to use the old black magic! It can be charismatic, sneaky in the kitchen, love bites in the bedroom, killer with real estate, a high end thief, a healer of extreme suffering. Emotions run the gamut, from none and numb to inundation. Children and family, both Mom and Dad, weigh in strongly. Career may be easily achieved, or obsessive and wickedly never ending, never enough, or simply a lifelong dedication!

Sun trine Pluto, is a powerful wealth aspect. So many famous people have this aspect – not in these signs necessarily. Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, and slinky Shakira. Also tragic Princess Grace Kelly, scary Bruce Lee, Christina RicciColin FarrellCharles BronsonSteven Seagal, Cate Blanchette, Francois Mitterand, Rupert Murdoch, Buster Keaton and George Sand. It’s kind of an odd combination in that the Sun is the Light, and Pluto was the God of the underworld, of death. But it also brings personal wealth because the Sun is the planet of Self, and puts its whole heart in it! To be charismatic, along with other factors in your chart, attracts recognition. Pluto can be perfectionist, obsessed, and what it decides to do, it does well, fearlessly. In Capricorn these days, it is working with sciences, time, elders, takes super responsibility (or none at all). It is political, tending to the conservative side. Works with laws, rekindles research to heal long standing diseases. It’s a shamanic powerhouse. 

As Saturn backs away from his April 30 square with Chiron, Moon is coming in to trine Chiron. Chiron may have felt a little chapped by Saturn’s demands, square realities to be faced, and bruised a bit by his judgments. Moon in Scorpio is here to soothe Chiron’s wounds. Moon loves you no matter what, Scorpio is not afraid you might bite. Scorpio wants to know where it hurts so it can know what to do. And Sun lightens things up, sextiles Chiron with a calming peace in Taurus, brings the flowers and herbal lotions. As they give you things to do that you do well, you perk up, get your strength and honor back.

Mars in Gemini is about to square Neptune in Pisces, then pushes its trine with Jupiter in Libra! First there is some time in Neptune’s foggy dew, searching for your lost keys. Who knows what other marvels have presented themselves, mysteries have been solved?! Or maybe it is good exploring underwater and you are even a little overwhelmed by all there is to see. And what dreams! At 13, 13 and 14 degrees, these three planets are closely linked. Understanding and a burst into action and spreading the good word are almost simultaneous! There is sudden insight, a breakthrough to compassion, and seeing who to connect with to carry the messages, all at once. Suffering is a strong motivator. Time to let go of addictions, get some exercise, turn the tables. Get in some tennis time, step into some new dancing shoes! Hang out with healthy allies!

Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are still in each other’s signs, a mutual reception! Mercury is direct, moving forward now, and has just electrically conjuncted Uranus the second and last time yesterday! We are reminded to put the brilliance of that connection we had at the New Moon into channels of fulfillment now at this Full Moon. In sympathy with Mars of leadership and action, we are inspired and it happens! Easier than expected!

Every single planet is engaged at this Buddha Birthday Full Flower Moon! It is pregnant in Spirit, linking between each of us, with our peers, partners and equals, to our community and the world at large!

May your life be filled with sweet connections!

March 3, 1913 Suffragists Women VOTE

These women worked hard to get us the vote ~ please honor them and yourself! VOTE!

This is THE Powerful Aspect of Election time! After the Oct 30 Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, this will be the predominant aspect leading up to the Nov 8 vote.

Then it becomes the 1st exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! 
There will be three. March 30, 2017 is the second, Aug 4, 2017 the third.

The next President will be elected under the auspice of this upcoming aspect Nov 24. It will bring a challenging first year. Further secrets of the candidate likely revealed, things kept from the President once elected. Vying power factions, major clashes. Mortality, morality and monetary matters will be on the line. There will be huge revisions, possible financial upheaval, ways of life will change, career shifts. It will call for a lot of clean up, healing and forgiveness, mending. Libra is the sign of polarities, and opinionated Jupiter sometimes exacerbates and enhances, for better or worse. It will take hard work, some quite tedious, getting over the hurdles. No laughing matter.

Jupiter is in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn. There will be much negotiating. Jupiter will call for the truth, but at times it is hard to pin down what truth is, or which truth it is. And sometimes it exaggerates. If overheard, someone may go off with a very wrong idea, quite hurt or angry. Sometimes making up a good story isn’t worth the trouble it can cause, the payback that comes later on. Pluto in Capricorn likely has old money well secured and will defend it, law or not. Serious secrets may come to light, with far reaching implications. Relationships, alliances will come and go. Partnerships may be a mixture of business and pleasure, discreet and not. There may be extremes of exchange, one has money, the other has talent. It will be wise to make temporary or short term contracts, with stated periodic revision clauses included.

Jupiter in Libra is so social and expansive, optimistic about connections from the get go! Pluto in Capricorn protects, swears privacy, conserves, can do the most with the least money! That can be a life saver, super sustainable, or simply a grumpy old undignified penny pinching grinch. Makes Capricorn nuts that Jupiter thinks money grows on trees when the Cap has worked so long for so little to no appreciation. It’s time to walk in each others shoes. Bless that Pluto Capricorn for saving so much time, money, materials, that the project can be done at all! Bless the Jupiter Libra that believes in them and knows if anyone could do it their Cappie can and will! Miracles right and left! The result is more powerful than anyone expected, and it’s just the model, the beginning for more!

Travel and schooling are called for but finances, scholarships may be hard to come by if this affects your personal chart. Do what you can, little by little until times get easier. Every bit will add up later. Don’t be surprised if you change horses mid stream. Breakthroughs are being made, some offerings being removed, others being added. Be ready to flex fast. Along with that, some of your beliefs may be challenged, and you may be fearful at first. If you need to fight for your rights, line up with others who have the skills and finances to help you. If your belief has lived its life, admit it and seek new connections if you are ready to move on. If you need to recenter, talk with some elders and give things some thought after their wise input. You will find your way. The world is changing and we pray for the wisdom to be in synchronicity with it in a good way.

Adding spice, the Moon conjuncts, is traveling with Jupiter! Moon in Libra is concerned and considerate, caring yet will give fight for injustice, if someone is an unfairly treated, a child or woman abused, home violated. Moon is women and feminine, in Libra is super intelligent, social, an able and impassioned fundraiser.

Also, Venus is with Pluto at the same degree! Moon and Jupiter square Venus too. Venus is Libra’s planet, wanting love and beauty, harmony when possible. But she wants what she wants, and sometimes that’s money and power when with Pluto and in Capricorn. She may be offered a career of a lifetime, make a merger with Pluto and a relationship tested or broken. Moon may cry, while Jupiter says you’re better off, let it all go. But what about the kids?! If Venus uses Moon and Jupiter in Libra, the top negotiating sign, to represent her, perhaps a deal can be struck. Maybe not a perfect deal at first, but it can be adjusted in time. There’s beauty, just not as we expected it to be.

Venus and Pluto are importantly at the point of the T Square. The focus is on them. Will Venus grace Pluto, soften his obsessions? Forgive him, exonerate him? Will Pluto give her the utmost respect she so deserves after all her hard work? They are conjunct the Fixed Star Vega! Vega is a pale sapphire star in the constellation Lyra, one of the three stars in the Summer Triangle. According to Ptolemy Lyra (a musical instrument) is like Venus and Mercury. It is said to give an harmonious, poetical and developed nature, fond of music and apt in science and art, but inclined to theft. Woops. Elsbeth Ebertin says: In a good cosmic configuration, Vega is supposed to give artistic talents especially for music and acting, but also a liking for good living. With eccentric artists, this may lead to a debauched life. Tied up with Jupiter or Venus, Vega is said to pave the way to riches and fame. However, if other influences [like squares] play a part, this wealth may be lost again. One can find Vega in birth charts of statesmen, politicians, persons of importance and influential persons with adequate aspects.

Uranus in Aries is the wild card. Jupiter and Moon are opposition to it, quite curious and astonished how tables may be turned in a fraction of a second! They are quick on their feet and the dance is on! New alliances will be formed, the public brought in. Venus and Pluto in Capricorn are square it. They are a tad old school, but are builders for the long term, realistic about what must be done in the time allotted. All are striving for a more inclusive world, a unity that holds power by the great numbers of people investing in change. If in accord for a cause, all of them will contribute masterfully!

Nov 24, when Jupiter squares Pluto, is the major T Square of 2016! There is an outer planet at each point! Moon and Jupiter in Libra square Venus with Pluto in Capricorn, oppose Uranus in Aries! Jupiter, Venus and Pluto are all potently at 15 degrees! See the red triangle pointing to the top left in 10th House section?! That’s it! Hang onto your socks! It’s a Cardinal T Square, and nothing stands still, major shakeup! Over the threshold you go. Fire up the afterburners at the crossroads! New connections sprout wings! Give this one time to settle and see what remains…. See more in the Holiday Four!

As to which Presidential candidate is elected, if you use the Polls opening chart, it may be a woman. The Moon is in Aquarius, someone ‘different,’ perhaps ahead of their time, sextile Venus in Sagittarius, an outspoken woman/feminine person. If you use semi-sextiles, the Moon’s last aspect in Aquarius is with Mars in Capricorn, a feisty elder with new ways. Jupiter sextiles Saturn but though they travel quite closely, less than a degree apart, Jupiter retrogrades before it makes the exact aspect, otherwise, I would say a successful robust elder. Close, but…. Whatever your opinions, PLEASE VOTE!

Please also see the pre-election aspect Jupiter inconjunct Neptune

Astrologers, students, see the candidates’ birthcharts and compare with the first Polls open in New Hampshire chart or the election chart of your choice, and the closing charts of the day if you wish.

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron
New Moon, First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron!
Monday February 22, 10:20 AM Pacific at 3 Virgo 34

Pisces Earth Moon Gaia Josephine Wall Prayer Surrender Gratitude Grace
Magical Beauty by Josephine Wall, birthdate unknown – May 1947

Pisces and Virgo are ever in humble grace and gratitude. Dreams and details run through their minds, Spirit sees their wholeness. There is a holy union of being on this Earth and being guided by greater Beings. True, there are times we feel bereft, forsaken, that things are impossible, but often there are also so many unexpected kindnesses and blessings. Full Moon miracles open our hearts to the immense possibilities our our consciousness.

Jupiter in Virgo, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries have been traveling together since 2015 and will continue to through 2017! See more about this magical mix! The triangle is tied together by the Pisces Full Moon and the March 8 Solar Eclipse!

The Virgo/Pisces Full Snow Moon is the day before the second Jupiter opposite Chiron.

The Pisces New Moon, first Solar Eclipse of 2016, is two days after the second Jupiter inconjunct Uranus.

The Full Moon Sun and Moon are conjunct and opposition Neptune, and they, the North and South nodes, and the Jupiter opposition Chiron all span the Virgo/Pisces axis! There are three ways to benefit from these so very different, yet similar signs! Virgo is earthy and the Cosmic Gardener. Pisces is the Visionary making it meaningful, the Garden of Life. Both want to improve our conditions, Virgo our daily health, Pisces our immortal Soul! Virgo will work overtime again and again, will save your life with herbs and nursing, or improve your helpful business. Pisces is noted or giving their lives to a cause, being a Savior! Virgo helps with the techniques and technical, while Pisces puts on the show of a lifetime illustrating the sheer brilliance of Being, a Star!

Neptune IS the planet of Pisces! With the Sun in Pisces coming to it, there is a communion with one’s higher Self in person! They have an annual meeting, conjunction, but not often at a Full Moon! There may be a symbolic coming into acknowledgement, acceptance, understanding of the glory of heart of Pisces. There may be a surrender of ego to an immersion into the sea of all souls. Aquarius distinguishes the unity of friend to friend; Pisces sees no boundary ~ we ARE all ONE. Compassion is a strength gained by ‘seeing’ the sorrows, fears, fearlessness and abiding joys of another. We can walk together in understanding.

Fixed Star Fomalhaut is at 3 Pisces 52, with the Sun. It is the eye of the Southern Fish, one of the four Royal Stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars. Fomalhaut represents archangel Gabriel. Winter Solstice is its time. Creativity, musical talent, and idealism are important qualities. It is said when we are aligned with our Soul purpose things go well, if corrupt, downfall is on the way. Take a look at what Marina Macario has to say.

At the other side is the Moon in Virgo running around tending everything! The table of celebration is in order, the food and wine precisely and healthily selected, the room lighting adjusted, and whatever is needed is keenly and kindly processed. She Moon is incredibly supportive. Workers are carefully chosen, pets are kept happy. Pisces doesn’t always realize the full extent of the efforts or give appreciation, but Virgo is practical and knows why it is important the meeting goes well. Pisces often glides on the intuition of the connections of Souls. However, when Virgo is in trouble, Pisces can see the cause within, helping with the root rather than the meds. We all have our gifts.

11:59 AM Pacific, one minute to noon, Jupiter makes its second exact opposition with Chiron Feb 23 the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! The gateway has been open and polished. In the evening, the Moon moves forward to conjunct Jupiter at 6:44 PM Pacific, opposes Chiron at 6:50 PM Pacific! Moon carries the Full Moon energy to the opposition. She pampers yet demands quality performance.

Jupiter in Virgo watches from the opposite vantage point with way above average organizational skills. With ethics and honesty it takes care of our health so we can do the good business of life, enjoy or time with our fellows to the fullest. Jupiter in this sign minimizes costs with efficient efforts and maximizes the applications of our highly crafted skills! In Virgo, Jupiter can be playful, sometimes lazy or doesn’t show up for work in Virgo, or the most demanding you ever saw! Small details that others don’t see, pivotal to our success, are taken care of with a fine tooth comb! Even our pets are well tended! Prepare to be offered a full package deal. Jupiter in Virgo knows how true it is that all things are connected. Being apart, opposite Chiron, is an excellent position with the least attachment. Their perspective is priceless. See more!

Chiron was a bad boy Centaur in the early days, and in Pisces can become invisible, sharing some traits with Jupiter. If dedicated as the superb healer it can be, you better do your part if you have to crawl to get there! So much can be learned. In Pisces the wisdom applies to matters of the fluids in our bodies, the natural tidal flow of our consciousness. Pisces the Sensitive is an empath, compassionate psychic. Moon brings her feelings to the recipe. Sometimes it’s not funny at all, and you know the glower is well deserved. Other times you gotta laugh, it’s life, perfect and imperfect as always!

Jupiter is retrograding back to trine Pluto March 16, an aspect not to miss! Pay attention to the date! Get any grant applications IN, chat up potential sponsors, donors. Ask for monies owed. Look for secure ways to invest with trusted partners. See if your company can work for other large companies rather than one small job at a time. This is also a healing time. Virgo has trustworthy remedies. Capricorn wisely seeks council of experienced professionals. Jupiter is hips/thighs, Virgo small intestines. Pluto is guts and sexual organs, Capricorn bones, teeth, skin. Let go of obsessive behaviors, let new healing strategies work on a steady basis, working systemically, until it becomes a habit.

Jupiter next squares Saturn in a powerful 1, 2 connection from Feb 20 to June 15, just under a 4 month period! Either Jupiter amplifies Saturn’s doubts or depressions, or cheers Saturn up and they easily surpass previous goals! Saturn may have been dutifully trudging, but Jupiter in Virgo has new terrifically sensible ideas right down to the details that cheer Saturn up. If Jupiter trine Pluto got funding as hoped, Jupiter square Saturn applies it where most needed and that money may vanish before you believe it. Hopefully that will bring peace of mind. There may be additional expenses or things cost more than anticipated, so be frugal for now. At any rate, plans are made and work will be done to mend issues. Or, work may come to a standstill temporarily as assessments are made, proper materials selected, strengthening reinforced, and further funding sought. Sometimes a rest is a blessing.

Saturn in Sagittarius is in close square with Chiron and trine Uranus, but retrogrades before either aspect is made. With Uranus it is a near miss, not quite making the connection as hoped. Keep the info to try again later. Due to Saturn’s retrograde, the exact trine isn’t made until Dec 24! Until then, keep courting. With Chiron it’s a close call. What scares us almost happens, definitely a warning to be heeded. Take care of your business, education and health if this aspect affects your chart. If it looks like advancements may be denied, do what is needed to bring your resume up to par, take care of any obstacles before they take root.Uranus and Pluto are still thundering along closely, sometimes scaring the wits out of us, other times inspiring us to race far beyond the finish with our arms outflung for the sheer exhilaration of it all! Stunted, stunned or crazy with adventure or all of the above! Whatever it is, who would have expected that!?!? From old to young, it’s kinda like Bernie and the young vote! Research is going at top speed. Electronics are verbing! Beasts and monsters are being seen for their surprising values all over the world. Animals are being treated more humanely, new laws made. Cruel wrongdoers are publicly called out by society at large for their obscene behavior, not getting away with local injustices. The Internet is doing its job so we see what’s really behind what’s going on. Let Freedom ring! 

To Peace and Power for the Long Term Good for All

Like a rainbow at night, the New Moon lets the stars of the Milky Way shimmer their energy to us. It’s quiet.

Solar Eclipse Pisces Stellium! Five factors are in Pisces! That’s five ways to look at Pisces, connect with them, them with you! That’s five ways for Pisces to send and receive.

Mercury is with Neptune, the Pisces planet! Mercury is thinking, communications, logic, but in Pisces it surrenders to a more ephemeral conduit, the conduit itself changing by what it perceives! Nothing about it is static. It believes what it sees as it sees it. It doesn’t always remember the past, even five minutes ago, and it may not matter that is does. Everything is real in the moment, 100% up to date! Logic is diffused as myriads of ideas and whims flit by. It is absorptive, and the accumulation of all the ideas makes things whole and evolutionary! To others this may appear as confusion or lies, depending on which moment you are there, then later get a whole set of different answers. Just know that your friend is ever changing. It’s a kind of intelligence.

Moon and Sun are together! Perhaps in Pisces they are merged as they can ever be. Pisces often doesn’t discuss, they feel, and feel is a small word for the experience. It’s way more than twins. There is no difference, not even a blur. Moon is absorbed by Sun, Moon is more than stealthy. She simply becomes one with Sun. Without his knowing, she reads his every nuance, entirety of Spirit, connotation of Being. Caring is surrendered. Ego is surrendered. They simply are.

The Moon was with Jupiter in the opposition Chiron the day after our previous Full Snow Moon, Lunar Eclipse. Now it has circled to the opposite side with Chiron, caught up with Sun, is just barely past the opposition with Jupiter, semi sextile Uranus, all four at 18 degrees!

Moon and Sun with Chiron put Sun and Moonlight, Moon’s caring and compassion, into places we fear will never heal. As they merge with Chiron, there is a frisson, a knowing what needs doing. It’s personal. As a healer, your core ability will be updated. You may not understand it immediately, but it will spread through your workaday being, with more revealed in the Dreamtime. It may be subtle, but oh, how profound. Trust your Spirit. Relationships will shift to a new understanding, some to be rightfully abandoned, completed, others to be more musical, deeply in accord.

The Eclipse and Chiron are in a T Square with Jupiter opposite and Saturn square. The Sun square Saturn was all the previous week and the dust is settling, but the Moon made the square only two days ago, not quite letting us forget. Sun or Moon square Saturn usually isn’t so fun. We need to face what shames us. It doesn’t matter if others tell us we are great. We know what we hide. Keeping that in mind, do the things that make the change. The wonderful semi sextile with Uranus in Aries helps us find or work with friends or groups that encourage us to get on our own two feet!

Shortly, March 23, Jupiter Rx will square Saturn exactly! We are already in the sequence, it finishes June 15. Saturn is having more fun than usual in Sagittarius, and Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! It can be disconcerting to be pestered to fun when you just like doing your ordained work and have been such a good person, LOL. But let it loose a bit and what doesn’t fall away, will be a valued and enjoyable part of the new program. Probably will take a bit of getting used to. Expand your production a bit and see if the computer results back up your hopes. If not, check for alternative methods until you get the right combination. On a completely different note, for those of you that are getting older, think of your long term plans, retirement. Square things up so it will be comfortable. Virgo and Saturn are earthy, common sense, practical. They will help you let go of old outmoded ideas, make wise choices now!

Nov 5 Jupiter was inconjunct Uranus, the ChangeMaker! We were pulled a wee bit off course, only to discover it was the perfect move! Off to the side was a bright surprise that awakened or reawakened something unique in us, a talent that hadn’t risen yet or has lain dormant for awhile. This aspect was exact again two days before the New Moon, March 6. It again nudged a gateway open, an obstacle aside, this time to allow the deep Soul connection of the New Moon in Pisces. They are unavoidably at the same degrees! Opposites both separate and call each other’s names. Separation indicates a culmination, the capacity for difference and tolerance. It gives space to see how the other fits in the world, lets us breathe and be who we are on our own. We may split off, continuing on separate ways, but ever having been influenced by the ones we leave behind who helped or hindered. In some respects, separation inevitably becomes closer as the planets continue along their circle. That handshake across the table or across the chasm of cultural difference, ages, gender, sexual preferences, opens us to sharing the best each has to offer, to learn about why other people make the choices they do.

This inconjunct and Uranus semi sextile the Eclipse calls for adjustment, more awareness. Friends make a difference. Whether we change or not makes a difference. Do we choose to act alone, take the point? Or do we find other Souls to align with and multiply our powers across the community, the world? It may be time to allow difference and embrace new standards. It’s time to acknowledge the essence, start a new plan, organize and stick to it!

Uranus square Pluto Though not in exact aspect, they may as well be because of their duration, how closely they are traveling, especially if they affect your personal chart! Uranus was born to upset the old sacred archetypes. Ever more so being in Aries, the rights fighter, leader, rebellious! The more they use the genius ahead of its time, the deeper Pluto in Capricorn digs in, protecting deeply entrenched systems. Clash of the Titans effect, definitely some casualties. Ironically, Pluto loves a good plunge into clean up and recycle jobs and betrays the combination of Capricorn’s lock. So when it’s open, let a few experts take a look, see what to keep and save, what to let go of. Good luck.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are making an equidistant ‘ASTERISM,’ pattern. At both ends of the purple line across the top of the chart, see there are red lines and blue lines. The reds are the squares, the blue are the trines! Equidistant patterns have a peculiarly potent power exchange, especially when all the degrees are so close! Uranus and Jupiter are at 18, as is the New Moon Eclipse! Saturn is at 16, Pluto at 17, Chiron at 20. That’s 7 factors within 4 degrees of each other. Squares are intended to be both breakaways and builders. Trines smooth out the rough spots. The purple line, an inconjunct, helps us consider adjustments that make a difference to the outcome.

March 16, only 8 days after our New Moon, Jupiter trine Pluto, part of the asterism, is exact the second time! This is a wonderfully profitable aspect when used well, if in good connection with your personal chart! There are possibilities of a tremendous healing, the most meaningful travels of a lifetime. Secrets will come out, often in a good way. See more!

Saturn trine Uranus also in the asterism, is close, very close, but retrogrades at 16 degrees. There are whispers, hints and hopes, but the exact aspect won’t happen until months away on Christmas Eve! Consider the potential of long term professional alliances, associations. Court them, put it on your calendar to connect in collaboration mid November, December.

Endings and beginnings are natural! As the Moon comes to the Sun, a cycle is ending, maturity, accomplishment. Take credit. The Moon is given a Sunburst infusion in the nature of the Sign they are in. We don’t think of Pisces as so radiant a sign, more likely retiring, but we can hear the songs and see the lights of a large concert for miles around! Many Pisceans are magical musicians, chameleon actors that imprint our Souls, superb performers from tender to crescendo in the limelight! They run huge oceanic ventures of all kinds, in charge of the lives of many others! They need a terrific energy charge to wield these enterprises. Please open your arms wide this Eclipse and let that straight shot pierce your defenses, cleanse and brighten your every molecule!

Blessed be, make it so.

This Eclipse will be visible primarily in Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi and from locations in the Pacific ocean.

FULL Blue Moon!
New Moon!   

Full Blue Moon – Venus 0 Virgo Regulus, Jupiter Square Saturn!
Friday July 31, at 3:43 AM Pacific – 7 Aquarius 56

Leo Full Blue Moon July 31, 2015!

Blue Moon because in 7 out of every 19 years, two full moons will fall in the same calendar month and this is then! It is Jupiter’s last Full Moon in Leo! Fitting that the Sun is also in Leo, it’s own sign, celebrating Jupiter’s Leo passage.

It may be a Blue Moon, but this is a Golden time of year, summer magic at its finest! The nights are warm, the crickets are singing, the faeries are dancing. Abundant gardens are harvested and bounty stored. Seeds are drying and saved for next spring’s plantings.

Sun in Leo, is in it’s own sign! Moon in Aquarius, strange and holy! Both are fixed signs, supposed to stabilize. Leo would like a fixed income of pleasant spending size. Moon is the 27 day many moods, feminine, intuitive. Taking care of home, family, is a full time business, and those in commodities businesses have a lot on their plate! Aquarius is the Awakener, r/evolutionist, responding to world wide change. Their ‘fixity’ is their gathering of Souls, friends of the family, to make constant change possible. They make sure planes stay in the air, and the Internet stays free for the people. Leo puts the Lights on and the game is ON!

Sun and Moon most closely aspect Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Sun is inconjunct Neptune. Neptune is tidal, oceanic. Leo loves both laying in the smooth rocking boat on a quiet day, and being on top of the waves when times change. Musing and motoring. Neptune calls for complete immersion, being one with the moment. Empathy comes. Inconjuncts are peripheral. They call us to explore off the main course. They adjust our frequency. We aren’t alone, there are others to consider. Neptune may have thought you didn’t notice them at the ashram or the concert, but we did! Sun’s shining Light gives hope and courage. Seaside and ocean going businesses may take us on a new current.

Moon will be semi-sextile neighboring Neptune. Moon and Neptune are both empathic, but Aquarius is clairsentient, clear knowing, not necessarily so personally caring. But they will put you in their plan for the greater good. Neptune in Pisces is the planet of and the next sign after Aquarius. Aquarians are the great philanthropists. As they work among the people distributing the goods, seeing the people’s further needs, genius Aquarians are already tinkering with the parameters to find ways to help those needs too, and how to distribute more quickly. Their other goal, with Leo Sun present, is to engage the receivers, teach them how to do for themselves, be free, become givers themselves!

Observant Mercury in Leo will look in the corners. Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mercury in Leo focuses on the individual, how they think. Uranus wants to bring like thinkers together. Uranus in Aries is split second genius, do it now! There is a sense of time speeding up, and it is! The exact trine will be Aug 2, 7:50 AM Pacific. Inspiration at the Full Moon can be signed and sealed in your mind, but wait until some days after the Aug 3 Jupiter square Saturn has passed to do the actual paperwork.

Aug 3, one time aspect, Jupiter in Leo square Saturn in Scorpio

…is the major long term aspect underpinning the Full Moon. Leo and Scorpio both have love on their minds. Leo is the romantic; Scorpio mates for life. Leo is even flamboyant, while Scorpio generally prefers a quieter private venue. But either way, their love is intense. Jupiter cleans up well, but both Jupiter and Leo are athletic, so may be quite casual more of the time. Saturn is certain you should be respectful and in Scorpio, particularly a power dresser. However, there are some times when Saturn doesn’t care at all. Why should you pay for something fancy when this old one still has wearable miles in it?!

So, Love is a dance. Different as we are, we love each other, we help each other. Being loved makes us feel safe, let’s us clear away old hurts, let go of chronic patterns we forgot how we got. We spend money; we covet and hoard money, afraid to lose it, bound in a long term spiritual attitude of poverty. Sometimes you just have to send yourself a message all will be well, trust yourself, you are a valuable worthy person, spend it and the money you need will come.

Get to work! Jupiter in Leo is education; Saturn in Scorpio builds and hones skills to a fine potent level. Leo style, show people what you can do. Saturn style, start humble right where you are at. One on one, one day at a time, take another step forward. Jupiter in Leo makes plans. Write yours down, including a date to update the plan! Saturn in Scorpio is a hard worker and loves an uphill grade! See yourself leaning into it!  See More!

♦ Venus at 0 Virgo is retrograde conjunct Regulus the 2nd time this very day!

Zero is as new as it gets! Venus has been in a 12 DAY preview at ZERO VIRGO, giving a look at work wished to be done, services to be rendered, health to be cared for, budgeting and allocating of funds organized. New ways of doing things, new equipment that gives more time for other things we can do is seen as a potential blessing.

Venus returns to Leo at 8:27 AM Pacific, just after our Full Moon, carrying the Virgo dedication back with it! Leo is a creative sign that can perform the dramatization of the benefits of Virgo’s ideas. Leo sees in it’s heart how helpful these shortcuts can be and how quality makes a difference. Education is one of Leo’s fortes, along with inspiring coaching and directing! Unsung Virgos may find themselves being blessed with recognition they are surprised by!

Regulus wants the best too! Regulus is the King/Queen! The Gift needs to be that good. There is an element of splendid in the works. If you were the kingmaker, who would you make king? If you were bestowing the funding, where would you keenly place it for the maximum long term good? Virgo is a sign of reason. They want to know how it works and why. There is Divine Order and it is their department. Regulus was in Leo from 156/7 B.C. It went into Virgo 2011/12. It’s their turn, let them Rule!

Due to Venus’s retrograde half way back into Leo, Venus’s third and final conjunction with Regulus isn’t until Oct 8! That gives some time. Things inaugurated at this Full Moon will be part of what finishes then. Do your best now and plan ahead for the maturity, the completion, then. That will inaugurate Venus’s passage into Virgo and what we will be blessed to accomplish during Virgo. The skills we develop in Virgo, the fine crafted goods produced, services we render, will be our offering into the partnerships of Libra.

Leo New Moon – Leo Stellium, Venus Blessings, Jupiter Virgo! 
Friday August 14, at 7:53 AM Pacific – 21 Leo 31

Leo Lion Susan Seddon Boulet
The prodigious and remarkable Susan is about 74 years old now. This is said: Susan Seddon Boulet uses subtle colors and a unique fusion of forms to reflect the magical and spiritual powers of shamans.

This is Jupiter in Virgo’s first New Moon! Jupiter is still in the first degree of Virgo. We are really celebrating the Jupiter Leo to Virgo transition! FOUR planets in Leo is a big going away party recognizing all Jupiter has been doing this last year, and the beginnings of its time in Virgo. Leo is a big hearted teacher, and passes spiritual knowledge on to Jupiter in Virgo. Jupiter teaches also, spreading the story far and wide, publishing the great achievements. Virgo analysts, authors, critics, and organizers offer volumes of Encyclopædic insights. They put it all to work in systems that give public access whenever you are ready!

Four planets stellium in Leo – Mars, Moon & Sun with Venus
Moon, Sun and Venus trine Uranus!

Mars stands alone, but is potent in Leo, the king’s guardian warrior at his side. There is strength both of his own as well as the King’s blessing. Activist in behalf of individual right’s, Mars has the king’s respect for his prowess and past deeds, so speaks for the people to the king. Mars is quick to respond and leads the legion to victory. Agility and sheer forward motion dodges the bullets. Surprise and key attacks at the right places can take only a few to conquer many. There is nothing to stop this Mars.

Leo New Moon As Sun was in Moon’s sign last month, Moon is in Sun’s sign this month. Moon was in her own sign first; Sun is in his own sign this time. Every year we have this tremendous mutual infusion. There is a strengthening of each, a renewal. The exchange of masculine and feminine energies will be complete.

Venus retrograde lends her beauty as she walks the Blessing way with them while they all trine Uranus!

In Pacific times:

Aug 11  4:13 AM  Jupiter in Virgo
Aug 13   3:27 AM   Sun trine Uranus
Aug 14   5:36 AM   Moon trine Uranus
Aug 14  7:53 AM  New Moon 
Aug 14  11:25 AM  Moon conjunct Venus Rx
Aug 15   2:27 AM   Moon conjunct Jupiter
Aug 15  12:22 PM   Sun conjunct Venus Rx
Aug 19   9:44 AM   Venus Rx trine Uranus
Aug 19   9.50 AM   Venus inconjunct Chiron

Sun trine Uranus in Aries starts the close 6 day set. They rule opposite signs, Leo and Aquarius, yet a trine connects them differently and well. What was separation has become a flowing connection of Heart and Higher Mind. Heart is guided by facts for the whole; Mind is more loving, individually unique. Leo would act on it’s own, but Uranus brought all his friends! If it is a Leo party, it’s quite a crowd and a hell of an assortment of exotic enchanting beings! Leo loves dressups! They look pretty wild, and some are crazier than they look! But don’t entirely judge the book by its cover! A lot of Leos are upstanding citizens with a lot of reach, and Aquarian/Uranians are the geniuses behind the Internet and a lot of their science and inventions power your everyday life. They are so lightning fast in Aries, it may take you a few moments to get what they said. And, believe me, their bank account may be way more than yours!

Moon trine Uranus is the aspect just before the New Moon. Moon feels for those Uranians and their friends. She weaves among the beings, seeing what’s needed here and there. Sometimes it’s a listen, others need real nutrition, and much as Uranians have friends, they often feel like the odd one out, not sure of themselves. Moon sees the potential and can give the boost. It’s just like hugging their kids. Moon is on a 27 day schedule, constantly changing signs, moods. She knows change and is part of a family, a tribal group. Uranus is the sign of the Awakener, the ultimate change, part of Universal Community. Moon and Uranus can work well together. Uranus ups the amps when Moon is smother Mother, gets stuck in the dailies of life, holds back in the name of security.

As Sun brightened the New Moon in Cancer, this time She-Moon nurtures the busy Sun, sometimes tired from all the responsibilities and cheering others on. How many people can you coach? Over and over they bring their problems, some ready to solve them, others just taking a look at their future. Sometimes the love tank gets depleted. All healer, teachers, leaders need to take a rest time to time, yet fire signs have ignition and it’s hard to let go. They feel they are failing their hopeful followers and who knows when a key moment might be missed if you weren’t there for them? But sabbaticals were made by wise men. Take the cook with you and take some time just for yourself. You will come back better than ever. Going to the Cave of the Moon lets you consult your ancestors, the Matriarchal lineage, and perceive cycles of the future.

Moon conjuncts Venus then Jupiter, and Sun conjuncts Venus after the New Moon. Moon and Sun carry their energy forward to Venus retrograde. It isn’t that they are just passing Venus, she is coming to meet them! They bring the classic Male and Female energies in the sign of the Heart to Venus of Love and Beauty. She in the sign of the Heart, welcomes their infusion, and bestows her blessings. The Lunar Queen is more radiant and beautiful as she is in masculine Leo. The royal King is graciously personified, adorned with honors, coffers are plentiful, possibly meets his Fair Lady!

The Moon crossing with Venus adds her nurturing qualities to Venus’s beauty. Both feminine, Venus is more the Maiden, Moon is more Child or Matron. Beauty itself is a child of our Spirit. We grow it like anything else. A childlike grace is granted. A mother’s loving touch makes us confident to be ourselves, radiant. We feel valued, encouraged. We are grateful for Womanhood and the feminine aspect of men.

Venus knows what’s intrinsically special, worthwhile. Moon’s conjunct with Venus first, carries that insight to the conjunction with Jupiter who in turn expands on the principle. Be alert to what Moon with Venus brings. Moon and Jupiter are both so happy to keep on learning and growing. Lunar people are forever scholars and Jupiter teaches forever! Moon travels all the signs every 27 days without going anywhere, enriched to overflowing! Jupiter travels the world a sign a year, robust with what they have absorbed along the way, learning each sign deeply. Moon memorizes and shares tribal stories that Jupiter publishes for posterity. Lineage and cultures have their idiosyncrasies and their valuable contributions.

Venus retrograde makes her second trine to Uranus Aug 19. Changes made with grace, beauty, love, may go more quickly than expected. But the retrograde means this isn’t the final answer; it is a review of the first trine June 28, and there will be a third and last trine Sep 22! It’s been awhile, so check your appointment calendar to see what was going on back then that can be made better now, and better yet again Sep 22! Venus in Leo lights up what’s Uranian different. It may not be what you want to see, but a light on it makes it not so strange now that you can see it better and did see it once before and you are still here to tell the tale! In fact, there may be some use to it after all. Some changes grow on you. Venus may have been longing for something more special, and there it is! It may be a super smart solution, a friend that tickles your Soul, the joy of watching the stars!

SIX minutes later Aug 19 Venus Rx sums up this mini sequence with her inconjunct Chiron that is in turn semi-sextile Uranus. The trine to Uranus and inconjunct with Chiron are virtually one! Venus is the Love planet, but the Magi astrologers think Chiron is the Marriage planet! Love is one thing, marriage another. Inconjuncts are more associated with unraveling rather than getting together, so there may be love but no marriage. Usually things just slip away due to lack of attention. But if you are mindful, things may be redeemed. Since this is a fast moving aspect, only days, there may be a temporary disturbance, or if neglected, none at all, and only if it activates factors in your chart. If there is an exchange, Venus will look at Chiron to see what matters. Chiron is mythologically the wounded, healer, teacher. If Venus finds the wound too deep she may pass on by, finding it unattractive or feeling unable to help. She may admire the healer/teacher, but think this is not the time. Or she may be touched in spite of herself and find a remarkable truth. If it is a monetary matter, this is probably not the time to be partners. Move on respectfully and gracefully.

Please see more on the important Chiron semi-sextile Uranus that is part of the understory of this New Moon.

Mercury also is in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign. It’s not just the Gemini gathering of info, but what the info can do once it is collected and applied! Mercury is in this fascinating earth sign, gleaning pure particles, making the whole greater than the sum of the parts! Time saving, super productive!

Happy New Moon, and Blessed be by our Jupiter new in Virgo!

The next FULL MOON, the GRAIN Moon, is in Virgo/Pisces on August 29, 11:35 AM Pacific, at 6 Pisces 6.

FULL Buck/Thunder Moon!
New Moon!   

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

Cancer Summer Moon Yukon Bike Cycle Tour
Summer Full Moon over the Yukon, Photo: Howard Naness on
Sockeye Cycle’s Klondike Canoe & Bike Tour

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer Full Moon Woman Cradle Sleep

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May it go well with you.

The SECOND JULY FULL MOON, a BLUE Moon, is in Leo/Aquarius on July 31, 3:43 AM Pacific, at 7 Aquarius 56.

Read Full Post »

Venus Retrograde Pink Rose Baby's Breath

June 21, Summer Solstice, the day the Sun entered Cancer, Venus started her 3 retrograde phases! 

First phase June 21 to July 25 – 14 Leo to 0 Virgo
Retrograde July 25 to Sep 6, 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, 44 days
Phase three, Direct Sep 6 to Oct 9, 14 Leo to 0 Virgo, complete

Venus the planet of Love and Beauty is in Leo the sign of the Heart of Love. Virgo is the sign of Maidenhood, the primordial juicy Virgin, Purity. 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo are the degrees covered. All but one are in Leo. 0 is the degree of Initiation, new beginnings. We will be launching a new system of daily living (Virgo) founded by lots of Love and creativity (Leo)!

Venus in Leo goes from refined genteel tea ceremony caring to robust party-out rock-n-roll knock-me-down LOVE! Presents mean a lot, from the tiniest rosebud to the best sound system in LA or the finest art! The tallest heels, highest laced boots, the most magical sweeping hair, makeup to light the night! Sequins to diamonds, every star must shine! Princess or Queen, a canny lass knows what’s best!

On the home front it might look like the warmest heart in the world, the tastiest sweet treats in your lunch box. A loving sweetheart makes your life easy, fixes things before you ask, brings you little gifts that make your day, makes that I-love-you call, knows who you are and the good things you do and says so.

On the job it is making the world a more beautiful place, a touch of beauty that makes a difference, sells the product. Successful social gatherings share the pride of a job well done. Entertainment, performances exceed all expectations! Poetry tells the story, and if you are really lucky, you win the bet!

Venus in Virgo is the sweetest. Virgo wants to help. They will slave away day after day, long into the night. They care for the sick, clean up messes, manage your money, help the tenants, do yard maintenance, plant the veggie garden, feed the pets, make sure you have quality food. Whatever it is, they take the time and do more than most, better than anyone, in the shortest time! They are super natural organizers and save money, barter like a banshee. They can be Mother, Midwife, Mystic all rolled into one, all while writing the novel or the grant application!

And believe me, this is all possible with the Retrograde STATION at 0 Virgo, the degree of REGULUS the King, one of the four Royal Stars! Regulus has been in Leo until recently. Now in this feminine sign Virgo, having the only female symbol of the zodiac, the King/God has become Queen/Goddess! It is with great honor that this magical 0 degree station is held for TWELVE DAYS+, late July 18 to early July 30! It will be an initiation, a trial period, a time of considering Purity, the primordial essence of Virgo. It is an indwelling absorption, imbibing the perpetual intention to serve. It calls for an innocence, serving without judgment, gratitude for how each gives as they can at the time.

So first we have Leo the sign of kings, then Virgo at the degree of the king of kings!!! If some of your followers have been missing, call a meeting and give orders! :) You women claim your Queenhood, put on a flowers and herb wreath and enjoy every minute. Be of a generous Spirit for you have it to give. Claim the divine power of the Maiden Goddess Persephone. Be the Midwife/Healer who was trained by her Mother, and Mother’s Mother, and trains her Daughter. Be the One to start that tradition. Be kind in your power. Change is inevitable; it just might not happen at your pace.

Another way is to think about this is the background of the transition of Regulus from Leo to Virgo in 2011, how profound that was, still is. The Leo to Virgo link is the transformation that happens every month as the Moon moves from Leo to Virgo, and every year when the Sun transits from Leo to Virgo. It is symbolized by the Sphinx, head of a Virgin woman, body of a Lion! Being first, the Lion is the foundation, support for Virgo. We know the story of Centaurs (Sagittarius/Jupiter), half horse, half man. Well this is the woman part. The Sphinx is less talked about, a greater mystery for the time being. Women are still finding their way out of slavery, having no rights, being abused. Time to call on the Leo Lion’s strength, be grateful for its Heart and Light. As the horse gave men a greater range of freedom, the ‘enlightened’ Virgo heads the strength of the Lion and serves by choice.

RETROGRADE it all takes a turn. Values shift. Your body tells you it wants different. Age might become a factor. Your exercise routine may be interrupted and those chocolates add pounds. It’s 99% not the time for facelifts or elective procedures. Your wardrobe is all the wrong colors and no longer fits, but wait, don’t buy new while retrograde. A person you thought well of is not as expected after all. They aren’t lover material, and you decide you don’t like that job or want that part in the play either! A long ago abandoned lover returns and you don’t know whether to switch or cut bait! Due to unexpected events, the bet is entirely lost, party cancelled. Better to wait on big spending – furniture, remodeling, expensive landscaping, or even that house. You have changed; you don’t even want it anymore.

HEADS UP for late summer, early fall planning! July 25 to Sep 6, while Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, most wouldn’t choose this as falling-in-love-on-your-vacation time, nor a wedding date choice time. Retrogrades can be unstable with constant mind changes. With this bound in the chart of something started at this time, you always have a sense of unfinished business, there is constant reappraisal. Values aren’t settled. If you love that, the challenges and the Leo dramas it brings, have money to spare for when things change, then life is good, just gets better and better. If aspects are well for you, for you both, at that time, love always returns, better than ever! Leo loves big! If it is at the 0 degree Virgo time, it is probably better to choose a different time. Virgos have enough to do already, and function best in their own routines.

Generally, new needs are in the offing.

THREE PHASES Give it the time it takes. Venus is in the degrees that will be reassessed June 21 to July 25. It Retrogrades July 25, going from 0 Virgo to half way back into Leo, 14 Leo. It will cross this same area the third time when it goes Direct September 6 on to finish the pattern October 9. The whole process will take 3 months, 18 days.

Here’s another way to look at the Celestial Schedule with the Star Regulus!

7/18 Venus at Regulus 1st time
7/25 Venus retrograde near Regulus
7/31 Venus conjunct Regulus 2nd time, Aquarius full moon
8/4 Jupiter and Venus conjunct for the 2nd time at 28 Leo very close to Regulus
8/11 Jupiter arrives at Regulus
8/15 Venus inferior conjunction (Venus transitions to morning star)
10/8 Venus arrives at Regulus for the third time and continues forward
10/25 3rd Venus Jupiter conjunction

Venus also makes aspects with three planets, three times each during its retrograde cycle.

  1. June 28, Aug 19 continuous to Sep 22, the day before Autumn Equinox, Sun into Libra, Venus trines Uranus in Aries. Blessings of friends and community organizations, loves flights, beauty inventions, new hairstyle, astrology readings, extraordinary performances, singers, gifts – especially of the electronic kind! We don’t mind having a great aspect like this three times!
  2. June 30, Aug 19, Sep 21 Inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. These dates are traveling closely with the Trine Uranus dates. Venus in Leo wants love, Chiron wants marriage, but inconjuncts are often divorce due to an askew connection. Things just seem to slip apart. This aspect also calls money and business decisions into question. If timely significant adjustments are made the situation may be saved. Or, just let go.
  3. July 13, Aug 5, Square Saturn in Scorpio, Oct 10 Square Saturn in Sagittarius. In Scorpio, the first two squares, there may be loss of love or money whether stolen, misrepresented, a mistake, or greater expenses. The breakthrough may be not falling for the seduction again, realizing the payoff may not be very much, doing the tough work it takes, admitting reality, reducing expenses. There may be a necessary and natural grieving period. In Sagittarius, your direction may not go as planned, maybe a relief, but soon better! Be careful of over confidence, fearful reactionary over spending. Give it a trial time, modify sensibly. A first step with genuine good intention often leads to another though it may be a challenging passage. Have a backup plan to ease your mind.
As of June 21, many things will not turn out as anticipated, especially ones in the fixed signs, Taurus/Scorpio and Leo/Aquarius. Fixed sign’s purposes are to stabilize, not disrupt, yet some change is a must, as much as the growth from chrysalis to butterfly. Things you deliberately want to be changed, might need some help getting done, so instead of seeking a conclusion, let them ride, continue on and the retrograde will help loosen the roots and knots. What will be will be. Most assuredly, it will be better when all is said and done! Sometimes there is so much transformation you no longer recognize what it was when it all started! Maybe you won’t remember because the new Light has taken your breath away and filled your mind with new beauty and wonder!

Walk in Beauty.

WESAK FULL Flower Moon ~ Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow!
Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
May 2015 Sky Map

X
WESAK Full Flower Moon – Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow
Sunday May 3 at 8:42 PM Pacific – 13 Scorpio 23

Taurus 2015 WESAK Full Flower Moon Dyer
Though this is at Bow Lake, Banff, Alan Dyer of Alberta, captures a scene worthy of the Buddha’s birthday celebration, WESAK, in the Himalayas! 

Full Moons both divide and unite. Sun and Moon are as far apart as they can get in our heavens, giving each space to be themselves, the least fettered by the other. Unlike a New Moon Merger, they have spread their skills to the far winds, and being separated, they can see each other respectfully for who they are uniquely rather than so at one ment they see the New Moon merger rather than their difference. Since January, the Full Moons of the signs are coming before the New Moons, so the appreciation of difference comes first, setting the stage for a respectful and more whole merger of equals. This will be true until May/June 2016 when there will be two Gemini Full Moons, and the pattern then reversed, New Moons before Full Moons.

Full Moons unite anyway because they negotiate, offer options for partnership, enhance each others standing. Division is like multiplication when we each bring our skills to the project! We get to know each other, different ages, faiths, races. A rich blend creates more than was ever expected, has a life of its own!

The Moon in Scorpio has a nose for power and primal forces, wants to share, is a natural healer, is deeply intimate, stands with you from birth to death. They have lots of cards, some of which you will never be privy to. They are superb at recycling and detoxing, cleanup. Successful research and medicine, corporate funding, behind the scenes access are possible. Perfumes, mushrooms and vampires, and fine wine.

The Sun in Taurus, the sign of the Buddha, is steady in the Light. What Scorpio knows, Taurus, the knower of lasting value, brings to the surface to be tended and nurtured. Gentle Taurus, slow and safe, listens to the wild beasties, hears their song. Super strong Taurus is literally capable of carrying the Scorpio knowledge, so Scorpio is willing to share with them. Taurus is often a founder, founding organizations, funding teachings. Taurus’ staying power is surety there will be time enough for the teachings to spread and sink in. This pair are formidable fixed signs with forever intentions. Give them the job.

Mercury in Gemini is just barely separating opposition Saturn Sagittarius, having been exact at 1:35 AM! May 1 or 2 may have brought some harsh or fearful, sad words or thoughts about responsibilities or commitments, credibility matters. Calm yourself, face realities, focus on doing the best you can do in a timely fashion.

Venus has only four more days in Gemini, is separating a semi sextile Mars in Taurus (one of Venus’s signs). Values need to be put into action, loving appreciative words need to be spoken. Actions need to be stabilized by additional positive information that makes you more fully enjoy your work.

A SAME degree Jupiter Leo T Square is the big affair of the day! Getting where you want to go may not be so easy. But often, that IS the test. You may not have directions, or there is an error, it is the ‘wrong’ right day, someone else can’t go. Trust is called for. Trusting yourself, your feelings, that you can do on your own. Teachings may not be accepted just yet. Good intentions may not make it happen. The signs are all fixed, so give things time. Go with an open mind, you may be the one who changes! Be exuberant, but not so pushy they dig in. If you are the listener, breathe and breathe, relax. No matter how excited others are, you still can make up your own mind, and, oh heavens, disagree! Maybe the whole show never comes to pass and you save time and money! Or, there could be breakthroughs! All that stirring up was just what was needed for people to see!

♦ Pluto Capricorn Bow Pattern Maybe you haven’t heard of a Bow Pattern. It is two planets opposite each other, in this case the Full Moon, Sun and Moon, with a third planet, in this case Pluto, at a 1/3 and 2/3s point between them. Sun in Taurus is trine (120 degrees) Pluto Cap in the first and last Earth signs. Sun is making the approach, so Light is coming to darker Pluto Cap. Taurus has an inevitable quality, not easily dissuaded once in motion, and the Sun is indomitable. Expect a brightening, a steadying, a sensible reasoning. Sun trine Pluto is famous for successful major corporate business. Things that have been on the table for awhile, barring the Jupiter T Square matters, may come to fruition.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile (60 degrees) with Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn! There is harmony of Scorpio/Pluto and water/earth compatibility. Sextiles are enriched by different elements giving more opportunities, collaborations. Moon in Scorpio handles the monies adroitly, while lawmaker Capricorn drives the work force, is the Captain of Time. Scorpio is the delving psychoanalyst, while Capricorn the Builder composes the structure. They are adept at rebirth, renewing the old, archaeological to historical.

North Node in Libra, on a 19 year cycle, now conjuncts fixed star Vindemiatrix, inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces.

  • North Node Libra  North Nodes in general are thought to be where we are balancing the old opposite sign in our chart. Sometimes there is a little fear getting used to new territory, so opposite where old skills are held. Aries is opposite Libra, a supreme independence versus the can’t-make-up-your-mind Libra impotence. Yet Librans are tigers when they get to court as lawyers, are in a political fray, or strategize chess or wars. They are not shy at socializing! Relationships are a must. Libra is amiable and accomodating. Collaboration and partnership make good sense, independence need not be lost.
  • Vindemiatrix.  Add these factors: On the dark side, Astrologer Robson says V is Saturn/Mercury by nature, hence gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows, the WidowMaker. Ebertin & Hoffman, differently say it gives mental concentration, great for architects and businessmen. If it is badly placed, and especially so if in conjunction with Saturn or Neptune, there is a tendency to depressive moods, skepticism, a distrustful nature. Bernadette Brady takes us back to that V is in Virgo, sign of harvest. It offers the taking time to harvest what you have planted, to patiently collect the things that you like or need. Art collectors, stamp collectors, people who gather facts or things are expressions of this star.
  • The inconjunct with Neptune throws one off kilter a bit. With things slightly askew, there are shifts in perspective, leaks to the outside, infusions seep inside. Secure all the openings, or allow the ventilation, observing the opportunities as they come by, or you go by them. You can adjust by both letting go, making new space, and deliberately making an oblique foray worth the exploration! New relationships, what you might never have considered before, may be formed out of seeming chaos. Neptune softens the boundaries. There is confusion, some fear of the unknown, yet new awareness. Misunderstandings become compassion. Balance is differently weighted. Equality is redefined. Beauty is a mystery, amorphous, exquisite, shimmering before your eyes. Dreams may be your cues.

 In the background, Jupiter in Leo is slowly closing on the marvelous super trine to Uranus in Aries on June 22! If it connects with your chart, in Fire signs there is an undercurrent of excitement, confidence. Challenges will work out, be met. Teaching and learning will be happening all along, go to seminars! Unusual writings may be published. World wide matters will see heroes and heroines. Education for rights, human and animal, are being sounded. Fame and Fortune are possible! Fun and travel. Make university choices by June 22, the exact last aspect, but not during Mercury Retrograde May 18 to June 11. See an astrologer for your personal best dates. The philosophy of a lifetime may be selected.

Make it count because our next super favorable major Jupiter/Uranus combo isn’t until Dec 15, 2019 and it happens only once that time! It is in Earth signs, 2 degrees Capricorn/Taurus. If it doesn’t connect with your chart then, you will have to wait for another 4 years after that!

May your Full Flower Moon Circle be Blessed. Happy Wesak, Namaste.

Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
Sunday May 17 at 9:18 PM Pacific – 26 Taurus 56

Taurus, Buddhist Woman. Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during 77th birthday celebration of exiled spiritual leader Dalai Lama in Kathmandu.

A Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during the 77th birthday celebration of the exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Kathmandu, Nepal

Our Taurus New Moon is inconjunct the degree of the Galactic Center and conjunct the Fixed Star Caput Algol! One is as wonderful as the old lore of the other is bad, bad, bad! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! It is at 26 Sagittarius, the lucky sign of the Traveler and Teacher! Taurus teaches through Earth wisdom, by connecting through touch, symbolically supporting by planting crops. Taurus teaches the Peace of the Buddha and has body sense through Yoga and organic eating. Inconjunct indicates some kind of a query, a slight disturbance, a course correction.

 Old timer astrologers considered Caput Algol, 26 Taurus 23, at worst to be the most dangerous star in the heavens, beheading, the Demon Star. The list of famous people having it strongly in their charts will almost make you a believer. Yet, a binary blinking, pulsating, eclipsing double-star, it is also associated with extreme creativity! There’s hope! At the same time, there is a symbolic constant death/rebirth scenario, that puts you in touch with intense maximum experiences. Burn out or ride it. So this New Moon may be quite more intense than Taurus’s usual calm self. It may be internal or you might need to get out of its way!

New Moons have their own kind of intensity as the two Lights in the heavens conjoin. The dark opens doors to inner realms. There is a quietening so we hear more subtly. This is a late degree stand alone New Moon, stand alone meaning it isn’t connected with other planets. Things are unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Things that are ending are blessed and their maturity celebrated. There is always a child quality and super Feminine to New Moons, as Mama Moon, also of Children comes to be with Father Sun. What’s new is begun, honored with initiation. Another way of being with the New Moon is to let things wind down, just stop. Take time out, rest. Let go of old expectations, be thankful for what you have. Taurus can sit like the Buddha or do proactive Tai Chi. Both are totally in tune expressions.

North Node in Libra is now past the exact inconjunct with Neptune in Pisces. It is still conjunct the fixed star Vindemiatrix. See above

Zesty Mars, now in Gemini, is separating the opposition it made with Saturn in Sagittarius the 14th. If that connected with your chart, you will still be working out what it brought. Mars in Gemini is clever indeed, trying to dodge Saturn’s rules, boundaries, may be exhausted from the effort. Yet there are times a steadying force is a relief. Mars in Gemini can just spin, flail about with no direction. Though that kind of freedom can be exhilarating and lead you to amazing ideas, it can get nervous if frightened and forget the objective. Saturn in Sag helps us keep on course, the long term goal in mind. Mars in Gemini is an information gatherer par excellance! Saturn at times gets stuck in its righteous routine, needs a nudge to move along, and with new information comes to life again!

Venus, Taurus’s planet, currently in Cancer, trined Neptune in Pisces the day before! Fresh dreams, spiritual intention, connection with the Masters. You want more than just money. Beauty is etheric. Music and the arts may have been endowed or you resolved to take up dance again! Your home may be ready for a remodel, or smoothies be back on the menu. An altar at home could be inspiring. At this New Moon you could do a dedication circle. You may miss your Mother, love your children more, so proud. You think of Soulmates, give gratitude for your blessings. Anchor them at the New Moon. Give praise.

 Mercury is in STATION! That means it appears to be ‘standing still’ in the sky before turning RETROGRADE the NEXT DAY, MAY 18 at 6:50 PM Pacific. Mercury, in one of its own signs, Gemini, is sextile Jupiter, but doesn’t make the exact sextile because of the retrograde! There still is effect because they come within one degree of each other. In fact, they have been in working distance since May 9. There have been numerous ideas, abundant ideas. Learning has been worth it, teaching given, schools selected, plans made. Short journeys are fun. BUT. They will only go so far then abandoned. They may or may not be completed, likely not, or not in the way expected. Signing contracts won’t be enough to hold people to old premises. Don’t hold people to their promises. Probably had best intentions, but the winds are blowing a different direction now. Mercury won’t come back and make that sextile exact until July 3! Lot of water over the dam by then! The amps shall have been upped and what happens then will be amazingly better than what almost happened now. You will be glad after all!

 Pluto in YOD, double inconjunct, with Jupiter and Mercury! This is part of a complex planetary pattern that has been with us since February! Jupiter makes its final inconjunct with Pluto May 21, just 4 days after the New Moon! So this New Moon’s new beginnings are crucial to the conclusion of Jupiter with Pluto. Mercury in one of its own signs Gemini, adds it’s communication skills to relay what information it can, but retrogrades before all is complete. It’s as if that’s enough for now, let’s rethink, upgrade, don’t forget what we have done already….

  • Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Inconjuncts adjust, skew to the side for more awareness and perspective. They can be unsettling, but Jupiter is up for the game, loves a foray! It loves the periphery, looking afar and wide, acquiring an enhanced chest of knowledge. Life is bigger, richer. Pluto in Cap dislikes its routines being upset, but sees the advantages and is on board pretty quickly. See more!
  • Mercury Gemini inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn, won’t make the exact inconjunct with Pluto. There has been inquisitiveness, steady prolonged probing of Pluto’s secrets since the 14th due to Mercury being in Station. But Pluto knows how to hold its own with sniffy Mercury. Mercury could get close, might give old Pluto a shiver, but since Mercury retrogrades, the aspect doesn’t become exact, Pluto is saved! Mercury may try to sign the papers, but they are pulled back, put on hold, likely will be forgotten, even misplaced. Other matters take our attention, causing numerous further shiftings. An alchemy occurs and without realizing, what was, simply is no more. The exact aspect will happen down the road June 28.
 Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn does happen! Pluto in Capricorn can at times be a bit gruff, not impressed by fluff. Yet Venus in Cancer is such a Sweetie, a little melting happens, plus, she’s safely on the other side of things, and out of reach too. She’s intuitive and knows how to prod the old wise one, flirts and flatters a bit and might even bring cookies! So he listens in spite of himself, and she’s smarter than he anticipated. She knows cycles, has good business sense, wants to secure the investment, has a sense of long term. There’s history, maybe good breeding. Real estate, restauranting, children’s business and organizations will likely be successful and Pluto may decide to do some funding. Might not be an encouraging start, but stay with it, ask for what you want.

Oppositions do mean letting go, separating, as well. Could be a breakup, no more hypnotism, improper seduction, or being kept by paying your way. Standing back you may wonder what you saw there. Age may be a factor, disparity of goals, children may leave home, you may move. But remember, Mercury is retrograde tomorrow, things will change. You or they may return. If you get a new place or job during the Rx, know that it is likely temporary if a home, the job may change from what was intended.

 Chatty Mars in Gemini trine the North Node in Libra is unusually looking forward to socializing, even partnering a bit. He more often happily stands alone, simply responding as inspired, moment by moment. But now, there is the potential of another comrade in arms, one who is supportive and helps with those social graces. It could be one person or an inspiring couple living that way. The more he talks, the more thoughts are linked, the more he sees.

 Jupiter in Leo continues to close on the marvelous trine to Uranus in Aries June 22! Performance is like lightning! There is a spark in the air, engagement that warms the heart. Things are bigger and petty differences put in the live and let live category, eccentricities celebrated as gifts! Great numbers of Souls are making change, a wave of Light! See more above

Make it so.
