Stand tall, Live deep, Love well!

June 21 we finished the last day of the Mercury in Cancer Grand square with Uranus, Pluto and Saturn. Some communications were stressed; there were some breakthroughs, there is still some fallout from decisions made at that time, regrets over contracts made or not made. This Grand Square was the first activation, of the SEVEN time Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. This was the first grand square formed with these planets since Uranus came within 5 degrees of its square to Pluto in the last week of April 2011. This long time, continuous Uranus square Pluto won’t become exact until June 23, 2012! It will continue in a 5 degree or less square with Pluto the entire time until June of 2015! Currently, the Uranus square Pluto has been further activated by two more Grand Squares.  The Sun in Cancer is finishing the June 26 to July 2 set, and will be followed by the Venus in Cancer set, July 7 to 13. Last, during Leo, Saturn having moved on, Mars in Cancer will T Square the remaining Uranus square Pluto August 9/10. Then, the Uranus square Pluto will be fully activated, charged! So, four planets, four different ways of doing, kinds of energy, are in process of activating the Uranus/Pluto square.

These 4 planets are adding the 4th component to the Grand Square, Cancer.  In the US, that is Mama Liberty that stands at our New York gateway, indicating giving shelter, a home that may be far away from loved ones.  Cancer is Mother’s love, unfailing or abandoned, skilled or doing the best one can.  Cancer provides a home in the Soul, and a homestead when possible.  It’s a water sign, irrigates the crops, keeps the nutrients coming.  Emotional, Cancer is onboard with how people are feeling, in sync with natural cycles, number one in business, great at the stock market!  Consumables are its best business, the things we need to live – clothing, food, toothpaste, home furnishings, storage devices, and especially, kitchen items.  These 4 planets ‘speak’ in behalf of our daily needs, a cherished regard that makes our flower bloom.

The Grand Square series opened with Mercury, amazing exchanges of information.  The Sun is bringing a more tender and personal yet creative perception.  Venus will add a touch of sweet, a more kindly attractive rendering.  All have been and will be tempered by Saturn in Libra’s standards, perhaps a taste of reluctance or caution! Mars will have no such constraints as Saturn shall have moved on out of the Grand Square. Mars will spontaneously act in behalf of potential being born right before our eyes! Blending old structures with new internet and electronics, resurrecting forgotten inventions and inventories, deconstructing and reusing secret resources and alliances, thinking 100s of years ahead, will be valuable skills. Retirement opportunities will be like never before. New careers will be invented at a breathtaking pace! The role of Fatherhood and Manhood will be relieved and enhanced. Archaeology will reveal further profound information.

This Uranus square Pluto goes through June of 2015. The face of governments will go dramatically toward sustainability. Protecting green assets and water will become more important than protecting oil interests.  Concerns of right and reasonable uses of resources will be at the top of our list.

May we meet all our challenges, may it go well with you.

This Jupiter in Taurus is very happy with Mama Moon’s Sun sign Cancer.  Taurus is the food producer farmer, Cancer makes sure there is plenty of water, Mama Earth’s milk.  Jupiter is fast and expansionary, unusually big!  Earthy Taurus is steady fertile growth gaining momentum, rich in organic soil nutrients, gains a pleasing shape.  Cancer is regular care and feeding.  Crops may grow faster this year, a great volume, tasty, award winning!  This is a year it is worth taking a gardening class, cooking class!  Take time to team up with a Cancer to preserve the abundant harvest!  Freeze, dehydrate for snacks and winter stews, can.

Jupiter likes stretching its mind and body, likes on-the-spot teaching.  Cancers are forever students, sponges, often with photographic memories.  And they like photography, water colors, preserving the memory for all to see.  Family photo albums can go back for generations.  Genealogy tells the story of the women and children, the matriarchs & patriarchs that made your family what it is today.  Jupiter loves stories, tomes!  Write your memoirs with anecdotes about all your relations, sketch, illustrate, add their favorite recipes.  And keepsakes of events – tickets, napkins, a scrap of lace.

Skirts.  Cumberbunds.  Home knit wraps, caps.  Aprons.  Quilts, doilies, towels, curtains, potholders.  Baby blankies and slings.  Hankies.  These are down home traditional textiles dear to a Cancer’s heart.  Wonderful gifts to make or receive!  Jupiter in Taurus loves useful items that give comfort from kitchen to bedroom, against the skin.  Plenty and generosity.

Taurus and Cancer are both food junkies, don’t want the food to run out, love growing food, lots of it!  Jupiter has a big appetite!  Won’t you please have some more?  And they need to watch their weight.  Taurus simply loves the taste and texture.  Jupiter likes something a little foreign, maybe ceremonial.  Cancer is usually traditional, loves ice cream and creamy foods, and often has a wee bit of a sensitive tummy, so be careful with the spices.

This year would be a grand time to publish a recipe book, put up an urban homestead blog, do a little importing and exporting gourmet foods!

A handsome Cancer who has not taken a back seat!!!!  Born June 30, 1985….

Michael Phelps, 16 times Olympic swimmer gold medalist, broke Mark Spitz’s records that had stood for 36 years, won 8 gold in Beijing 2008!  Per WikipediA FYI:  A few physical attributes particularly suit Phelps to swimming: his long, thin torso offers low drag; his arms span 6 feet 7 inches (201 cm)—disproportionate to his height of 6 feet 4 inches (193 cm)—and act as long, propulsive “paddles”; his relatively short legs lower drag, and perhaps add the speed enhancement of a hydrofoil; his size 14 feet provide the effect of flippers; and his hypermobile ankles he can extend beyond the pointe of a ballet dancer, enabling him to whip his feet as if they were fins for maximum thrust through the water!

MOON Void of Course ALL DAY daytime 10 times in Cancer!  June 22, 27 and July 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17.  VC is thought of in two main ways.  Nothing will come of it; there is nothing to stop it.  Whichever school you are of, be wise about making appointments, starting projects, on those days.  For more on Void of Course, see the last item on the page at this link.

July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9 Cancer finishes our sequence of 3 eclipses in a row. Feeling what you are saying, doing, is vital. Your feelings have SUCH potency.  Your effect on others runs a course from one person to the next.  Seeing how much your feelings affect those around you may make you choose to divert your attention to more positive feelings.  Feelings can consume your attention so you don’t think or see anything else, holding you from seeing out in front of you, and moving forward. Emotions have enormous effect on your vitality and health.  Emotions tell you what’s up, and how important it is!  Take good care of yourself, like what you feed yourself.  Good organic food creates your chemical balance, makes a difference.

One of the true Cancer gifts is loving people unconditionally.  We see it with Mom’s and their children.  It’s a true power – they can lift that car right off their kid!  Practice that power of love yourself, to yourself, to others, adults.  Often what seems irrational about them, scares us, but when we sit with them for a time, walk in their shoes, they become simple and understandable, maybe a lot like us!  Even if not, all beings deserve love and care?  If the Soul is of many life times duration, as some of us speculate, fostering a self worthiness can go a long way in healing.  It gives them the message they are worth it.

Happy Eclipse!

The Aries Fire Stellium is OVER.  Now as we enter Taurus, the sign of loyalty and steadfastness, what was new, or did you start, during that Aries stellium, that you would like to continue to have in your life?  What value did you bring in that you are happy to maintain?  I have a new student who is new to astrology, and she is taking in the principles amazingly quickly!  I started sharing some more garden space with another community gardener, and intend to grow crops I will harvest to store for winter food.

Wise old Saturn is holding the fort at his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) from May 18 to July 8, turning direct (forward) June 12.  Those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future.  Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference.  Focus and do your best.  Make yourself proud!

Jupiter is making his last stand in Aries until entering earthy Taurus June 4, starting off a fine Saturday!  That will leave only Uranus in Aries, the lone wolf on its own again, but happily so in a sign of its same spirit, both Uranus and Aries loving freedom and independence!  Jupiter in Aries gives a last chance these 14 days to start what we will, get educated to be encouraged, have confidence, to lead the way, or follow someone we trust well.  It could be more fun than you have ever had before!  Frolicking is good!  Roller skate, hike, ride your bike!  Continue it with Jupiter in Taurus exercise; do the fun kind!  Long horseback rides, mountain walks, walk your dog!  Endurance and strength sports are satisfying.  Long distance and heavy weight.

Jupiter, good luck, fame, huge growth, in attractive Venus ruled Taurus can attract more money than God – they call it a BULL MARKET when the stock market is going UP!  Jupiter in Taurus can keep that money, hordes of it, may travel to the ashram for an extended stay, found a non-profit organic farm, raise horses, buy fine art, start an imported cosmetics franchise, do melting massages at the spa on the train, drive a huge moving truck, give sculpting seminars!  It may get off to a slow start, but once rolling, it just keeps going.  Dedicated, determined, loyal.  Simple, common sense solutions.  Luxurious hair, earthy beauty, natural fabrics, furs.  It looks further ahead than its own two feet, so makes ‘lucky’ choices.  Well grounded, centered, satisfied, peaceful.  Smooth jazz.

Jupiter may, at this time, be even a bit more languid than just the easy-go-flow of Taurus because it is sextile Neptune (only this one time, not the usual 3 times) upon entry into Taurus, makes the exact aspect June 8!  Both are ‘religious’ in that Jupiter rules churches and sets the tenets of faith; Neptune is the Pisces planet, Pisces being the sign of spiritualism, meditation, meeting God on your own terms, often religious diversity.  Jupiter usually calls for adherence to the church’s philosophy, though can be open-minded and take up religious studies.  Pisces, is perhaps more Buddhism oriented, compassionate, yet can believe so passionately as to give one’s life for the cause, a devotee who lives in silence and service in the spiritual abode 24/7.  This aspect offers what works for you, the best of both, in your everyday life.  Jupiter in Taurus loves the armchair more than the airfare.  There better be a good reason to take that trip.  Probably chooses to make oms at home!  Neptune is now in Pisces, its own sign.  It, like Taurus, is usually gentle.  But don’t let this fool you.  Being gentle is one of the greatest powers on earth.  A good teacher can ask clever questions, sneak right up on you and let you think you thought of it yourself!  Feeling and being safe, opens all the gateways for learning.  Your eyes open right up wide with the happiness of the leap – insights, epiphanies, are the order of the day!  Let it be!  Make music!
