Virgo Shamanic Healer Traditional Smoking Ceremony Saturn Square Chiron

An Aboriginal man performs a traditional “smoking” ceremony as the Asian Cup trophy is carried to the Sydney Opera House for the official draw.  

Late September, this Saturn square was showing up, already in effect at the Sep 19 New Moon. The Nov 2 exact aspect is the day before the Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Full Moon Nov 3. It’s like Saturn hammers the forces into place, if he can get them in his grip. Then the Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, to reveal the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!

Saturn square Chiron has run concurrently with the Jupiter set of four that started late October 2016. It is now the next to the last aspect of the entire set. The very last one is Saturn trine Uranus 11.11.17!

Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. Saturn nails them shut for later consideration, or splits them apart to be reassembled with better materials for a finer fit. Small firewood burns faster. Smaller healing steps can be wise, more easily dealt with in difficult situations. Start where you can, adjust as you go.

The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. Sometimes neither party is willing, or able, to make changes, rebuild. Too tired, weak, overburdened, survival priorities may take precedence. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend marriages at this time unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can wait and do so much better? Though the aspect is activating 24 Sag/Pisces 47, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, it still would be part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

For some people, the square will actually activate their charts well. The aspect itself will present challenge, but you will deal with it comfortably. If it doesn’t aspect your chart at all, it’s just a go by, hardly noticed.

If it is in difficult conditions with your chart…. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows down healing, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, you may make a breakthrough and make a start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it. Make what you’ve got the best it can be.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions. Working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready to anticipated difficult questions. Leave stressful situations if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

This aspect is particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. The Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus has been traveling concurrently with Saturn square Chiron. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!   

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax deductible donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

Shortly after our Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, Nov 11 the entire 2016-17 set finishes with Saturn trine Uranus! This aspect starts a series of only positive aspects through Nov 1, 2018!!!! That’s a go ahead!

Happy Birthdays, Libras!

Libra 3 Planet Stellium John Trudell

John Trudell image by Matika Wilbur/facebook.com/Project562

In honor of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, I choose John Trudell, 3 planet stellium in Libra, as our Libra Hero this year. As a Native thinker Trudell said: ‘I am a human, a member of a tribe, not a subject for corporate mining and exploitation. I don’t trust their corporate ‘democracy.’ We humans must think for ourselves. That’s what we need to give to the next generation.’ He died less than a year ago, December 8, 2015. His Spirit is still with us.

John had Neptune in Libra. You can bet he would be there to protect our precious waters and sacred land and animals and humans and children’s rights. No pipeline.

His Chiron is in Libra. He would have sought ways to heal the wounds of the land. John would have kept us updated with his broadcasts, made films to teach better ways and balance, write poetry to sway our hearts.

His Jupiter is in Libra and trine to his Aquarian Sun and Venus. He is for the people, a teacher of faith in change. He was multi gifted, a Santee Dakota Native American author, poet, actor, musician, and political activist.

Trudell served as the national chairman of the American Indian Movement from 1973 until 1979. He grew up in small towns near the Santee Sioux Reservation in northern Nebraska near the southeast corner of South Dakota. He lived in the very lands where the Sioux people still live.

In 1963 when 17 years old, Trudell dropped out of high school and left the Midwest, joining the US Navy. He served during the early years of the Vietnam War and stayed in the Navy until 1967.

Trudell had his share of suffering. His pregnant wife, three children and mother-in-law were killed in 1979 in a suspicious fire at the home of his parents-in-law on the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Nevada. At the time of Marcheline Bertrand’s death in 2007, he was in relationship with her. She was Angelina Jolie’s mom. Marcheline was the executive producer of the documentary Trudell, shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005.

Those days were different, when Trudell was most active. There was ‘revolution’ in the air with protests of all kinds – financial, love vs war/violence/hate, racial, women’s rights. There was so much fear as old ways were overturned, people looked different, mores changed. Everyone was finding a way and it certainly wasn’t peaceful. Protesters were well intentioned and unsophisticated. Massive resistance seemed to require radical behavior, and often that was what it took. Mistakes were plentiful on all sides.

John Trudell was not a perfect person, but he did what he could as he could. Whatever needs changing in your life, stand up for it!

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Libra!

Libra Let there be Peace on Earth Begin with Me

People remember how you treated them, they remember how you made them feel.

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Librans and Libra in general are in a challenge aspect with Capricorn. Libra is the sign before Scorpio, so by natural order, as trust develops in Libra partnerships, Scorpio feels safe to invest with them, both on a personal basis and financially. The challenge is when Libra teases their way between the Capricorn bricks to loosen the armor. Pluto can hang on until death do us part. That can be a good defense when protection is needed, or it can be a harsh and brittle punishment when stopping a flower from blooming. Stand as equals, hear each other out, give it time, come back to the table. Sometimes a bridge needs to be built, breath by breath, heart by heart.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Libra, a logical air sign and keen observer, sees the sensitivity of Neptune, like a canary in the mine. They are fascinated by the gift of intuition, confused by the magnitude of sorrows and the illusions of addiction. Libra usually stays clean. They don’t like losing their balance and not looking their best. They can arrange aid for the cause however, seek strong allies and advocates, lend legal assistance. Libras can illustrate equality, render a fair decision, a just compromise. They are often peacemakers in their own families at a young age.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Libra charmingly collaborates with Uranus. And it may be over tough matters like civil rights, to say nothing of animal rights, stopping extinction. It’s no accident that September 21 is International Peace Day. Uranus in Aries strives for independence, freedom of all beings. Libra seeks even more, a harmony of all beings. Traveling and education in other countries, on other continents, helps us see others ways that are quite different, often wise. Cultural diversity is invigorating, like hybridization often is! Remarkable friendships and partnerships may come.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Libra may find themselves with marriage in mind, especially while Jupiter is in Libra, but this may not be the best for late Libras. It may be a better time for them to be careful of losses, attend to problems, even if they seem to be only small nagging at the back of your mind types. Pay attention, talk about it whether it is on your side or theirs. A gentle resolution could save the day down the road. Learn more about items that come your way. Learn more about negotiating and how to kindly show others how to do it too. All these skills will do when making business adjustments too. You can be a good mechanic, but do it with a lot of heart. Be the magnet.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Libra is not a physical laborer sign, but works hard building relationships. They have a sense of refinement, an uncanny ability to see each side of a matter, to bring Spirit into alignment! Agreements can always be made from necessity or from a win/lose point of view, but when there is an underlying respect and understanding, the sting of loss, and the joy of gain makes peace in the long term.

Sagittarius and Libra are a delightful combination. They love sharing stories of the places they have been. Libra is more anthropologically inclined, Sagittarius loves the adventure! Libra is great at film making, Sag is a good subject! Sag may at times just outspokenly blunder in, while Libra is checking for local customs. Libra teaches Sag a little finesse, and Sag says don’t be shy, just do it! Seeing the advantages of both, they can pass the lead back and forth. Great teamwork for an import/export business! Libra sets up the contracts, Saturn minds the muscle to gather the goods.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. With the Sun in Libra too, it’s double time to go out and meet some good companions, enjoy some of the fruits of your labor. Go to a museum, the finest restaurants, check out some courses at the university! Your students or teacher may be from an array of cultures. Libra is remarkable with design! See if there are jobs with a cause that are open for you. You may be just the talent they are looking for! Instead of only that morning walk, you might find yourself taking dance lessons! And who knows, you may meet a sweet mate! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter Sunday the 25th at one minute before Midnight Pacific time! From noon on that day, spend some special time on a little journey with friends or loved ones! Attend a special event!

 

Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture!

Have a great new year!

Libra Poised at Fall Equinox!

Libra White Rose for Purity

Dried plants, fallen leaves floating in the wind, seeds on the ground, a time of letting go of summer’s brilliance. For some it is a cooler season, for others it is blankets of snow over earth’s bed, quietening and restful, time to catch up, social evenings by the fire. For many, it is also the crisp zing of intoxicating energy, skiing, skating, sledding, ice hockey!

White for snow and purity, perfection and the virtue of the balance required for all those winter sports! Since plants and light are dying, there are cooler days and longer nights, worries and sadness can set in, needing courage to face the demons of darkness. Time for the breathtaking White Tiger! In itself it strikes the balance between dark and light by its colors! It LIVES those colors! Plus those amazing blue eyes!

West, the place of the setting sun is Libra’s direction. Sunset is our natural gathering time of day after work is done. We are tired and enjoy chatting over dinner, sharing the day’s events. Summer’s bounty makes it possible to share with pleasure. The Chumash Indians saw it as the place the Souls crossed over after having walked the Milky Way as stars. It is a finishing time as well as being inspired by new ideas. We talk things over and brainstorm how we would have done it, done it differently. In a moment new partnerships are formed to do new ventures.

West is also the place of dusk and dark, dreams and visions! We can seed our dreams with images of our new projects and ideas before sleeping, then dream them into being during the night. We wake up knowing what to do!

The knowing of these cycles of growth then rest, are innate within us. Being reminded helps us remember the cycle continues endlessly, effortlessly, naturally. Sadness is part of it. Weep well for things you have lost. Let your tears grace the Earth. Each period of rest or winter is followed by new growth, or spring. Choose courage to face what’s ahead, and may it be joyous! Light white candles. Put white flowers on your table or where you work.

As  Deborah Byrd says: You can recognize these phases in the course of relationships, over a workday, in the progress of a play or novel, in the process of aging, while eating a meal, in the growth of a garden, in a scientific or political or business enterprise, while playing a game. All things sprout, bloom, reach completeness, become brittle and die, then rest. Then the cycle begins anew.

Where Virgo sorted the goods, Libra connects the people! We are doing this together. Extend a smile or a hand to to fellow Life Walkers. Give them a white rose of winter.

CHRISTMAS Full Long Nights Moon –
Water Grand Trine/Kite!

NEW Moon – Capricorn Stellium!

 

CHRISTMAS Full Long Nights Moon –
Water Grand Trine/Kite!

Wednesday December 25, 3:11 AM Pacific at 3 Cancer 20

Capricorn Christmas 2015 Full Long Nights Moon
May the Magic of the Long Nights Moon descend upon you and bring you Love & Peace. 

Last Full Moon of 2015! The next, a New Moon, is Jan 9. Say farewell with deep gratitude, your Spirit fully open, like the wings of a butterfly, to let the Sun shine upon us, to ascend into a New Year full of Promise!

At 3 degrees, extraordinary Lilith is in exact aspect with Sun and Moon! Retrograde, she sextiles Sun and trines Moon. Some call that a Wedge pattern. The planet/factor to the side of the opposition seeks, senses, siphons energy in from the outside, opens to greater opportunity. It pushes energy from inside out into the world, releasing, sharing the combined power of the two opposites! Since the aspects are favorable in classical astrology, what Lilith seeks is accepted by her more conservative comrades in Cancer and Capricorn. She in Scorpio, may bring them secrets, deeper connection they don’t completely understand at first. She can represent them to higher powers successfully, taking them further than ever before. In modern terms, Lilith brooks no nonsense, is an independent feminine force!

Add magical Neptune in Pisces, and we have a Grand Trine/Kite. The weight of the Kite is at the Sun side of the Full Moon Grand Trine. The Sun is a radiant midpoint lighting the channel between Lilith and Neptune. Lilith can have tremendous power in Scorpio. People who even have an inkling of it may back away, even when it is for good purposes. Neptune understands Lilith even if she doesn’t want to be known. As Scorpio often prefers privacy, Neptune often chooses solitude. Lilith strengthens Neptune to stand for what it sees though it is doubted often. Neptune softens Lilith, showing that gentleness is also a great power.

In the sequence of aspects, Lilith transfers potent strength to Moon first, then Moon lends her nurturing knowledge to Neptune’s visions. Water signs are feminine and so are all three factors! Scorpio and Neptune/Pisces, though illusive themselves, are extraordinary seers. The Sun in Capricorn is loving that team, beams down from the heights, leading the way, on the fly, building a Path for others to follow.

The recent Saturn square Neptune, with the sad losses in Africa, Paris, and other places, left many in grief and for some, despair. From suicide to misunderstandings, lack of ability for commitment, to depression, unbounded fear, guilt and shame, religious disappointment, misguided beliefs, distrust. It takes many Moons to heal such rifts in the valence.

This Christmas Moon, a time of gathering, a chance to be close, will help reaffirm our goodness to each other, renew hope.

Venus and Mars, and Mercury and Jupiter are in well favored connections. Venus in Mars’ old sign Scorpio and Mars is in Venus’ sign Libra! Besides this mutual reception, they are at the same degree in neighboring signs, in close accord. Mars, usually super independent, is willing to compromise and see the other’s point of view. Venus wants a deeper alliance in Scorpio, one that is not just social, but genuinely caring, truly safe. Together they can make a fine quality relationship with each other and others depending on them to come through for them. The frosting is they are financially successful too!

Mercury in Capricorn is making an earth trine with lucky Jupiter in common sense Virgo! They have ideas that would fill a galaxy! Workable too! Jupiter plans and organizes; Mercury cracks the whip, no dallying or wasting time! Right to the point. Jupiter is jubilant, Mercury is determined! Winning combination! Jupiter may be picky in Virgo, but is looking ahead, super confident, more cheerful and inspiring than it should be – LOL! Mercury cracks a grin as excellent progress is made! Time to put our heads together!

Yes, Mercury squares Mars. Oops. They blow Mars hot and Capricorn cold. Mercury’s logic, no matter how intelligent or valid, is not likely going to sooth things. Mars in Libra sometimes just enjoys the debate, loves to see what you are made of, maybe not realizing your feelings may be hurt. Understanding may help. Just listen. Or you might be wise to avoid known hot topics, or simply back away if one comes up. Leave if it gets serious. Sometimes you can agree to disagree and change the topic. Whatever works. Be wise. When people aren’t able to listen or change, put your energy elsewhere, in fertile soil.

Mercury sextile Venus links the Venus/Mars and Mercury/Jupiter combos. Those perceptive healing words may make all the difference before anything gets started at all. Mercury in Capricorn tends to be factual about memories, data. It’s cool demeanor can keep a discussion on track, or make the other person think you don’t really care about them, just about how much you know or how smart you are. Take it easy. Give regard to each other, benefit of the doubt. Venus in Scorpio is a kind therapist. She knows when we have reached our edge and need a reprieve to regather ourselves. However, at times she can sweetly throw in the bitter thorn. Hopefully she can remind us that we are loved and of the good things we have done, all of us. Be careful, be kind. Not a time to be blithe.

Chiron, Uranus, and Pluto are the outer planet slow moving cloak we are traveling together in. Uranus and Pluto though not making anymore exact aspects, are staying close, ever reminding us of freedoms lost and sought, changes of climate – political and planetary, coalitions and the collective consciousness. The Internet instantly discloses the enormity of atrocity, and of unbelievable changes, gains for the good – gay and animal rights, ecological repair. Chiron stands between Uranus and Pluto, in Pisces, the sign of compassion, spirituality, looking for healing. Now is the time to remain Steady in the Light.

Special ceremonies, gatherings, Circles, will likely be held, Christmas Eve night to take advantage of the incoming energies since the Full Moon is at 3:11 AM Pacific, while most of us will be sleeping. Whether you Circle or are a solitary practitioner, Blessed Be always ~

New Moon – Capricorn Stellium
Saturday Jan 9 at 5:30 PM Pacific – 19 Capricorn 13

Earth Moon Crescent

The first Moon of 2016 is at 19 Capricorn in the heart of a 4 planet stellium! They have just left Pluto, a great planet of healing and resurrection. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008, cleaning up as it goes. It is now at 14 degrees, almost half way through. Sun and Moon have come along again, in their once a year visit, to lend energy, be conduits of Light to a dark planet in a sign of Karmic duties. Moon nurtures this combination of great sacrifice. Pluto has an extreme responsibility to rebuild, restore what can be, to relinquish what can’t. Moon and Sun, the New Moon, remind us of the beauty of the feminine and masculine, their supreme Union a blend of energies that has always been. Pluto, planet of sharing and profound intimacy, is recharged by their bedrock essence, being impeccably heart to heart.

Just because we can’t see them in the night sky, New Moons are definitely not sleepers! Sun is infusing Moon with as much Light as possible as they travel together! Moon is receptive, carrying that golden Light like a babe in arms! That miraculous update keeps our batteries charged. As the dark of the night sky is lighted with brilliant stars, and we are free to connect with our inner core, the New Moon finishes that round, begins a fresh cycle. We mature, complete, move to the next step. 12 to 13 New Moons a year keeps us in practice, reminds us life has its natural cycles, the celestial channel is always available from every angle.

Mercury is Retrograde coming back to meet them! It is at 29 Capricorn, going back to 14 Capricorn. 29 is generally thought of as the degree of endings, being the last degree of any sign, but when the planet is retrograde, things are not nearly finished yet! Mercury goes through all the signs in about a year, but when retrograde, it’s in a sign more than a month depending on the degrees the retrograde covers. This Rx starts at 1 Aquarius; Mercury is in earthy Capricorn 59 days, twice the average time per sign! That’s a hefty amount of time to be thinking like a Capricorn about Capricorn matters! A lot of changes, reversals, are in the view. The more changes you can make, the further you get!

Venus has just left Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and they are headed to a trine with Uranus! Venus makes the trine Jan 12. Saturn, however, turns retrograde, not making the trine until May 2017! Venus and Saturn seriously want what they want. Saturn has been working hard all along, Venus clarifies which parts of the project have selling qualities and which may be simply work for the love of the work. The observations can help balance the viability of what’s being done, with results that pay the rent, pleasure while holding the goal in mind.

Saturn and Venus consult with Uranus for technical electronic features, speed of light functioning! The results will be unparalleled! Approaching the right organizations or individuals at the right time can get funding for years for this valuable creation! It may be for everyone, the man on the street, students, travelers, corporations! This is a start-up with potential!

Though Moon and Sun have recently squared Uranus, a little scared of how things could have gone wild, they are now coming to trine Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance! It’s good to know how things can go out of control, like a leak in the ethers, so they can be addressed. Some people will never be kept more than their time, nor can you put a round peg in a square hole. Take them for their value as is. Quickly query them of the changes they would make for you and thank them! Shake your head and let the new pieces rattle into place. Awakening to the vitality of new mixes is worth its weight in gold!

Jupiter in Virgo will further organize the best bits, streamline production, gather data and quality materials. The job will get done to maximum perfection, further potential likely. Your health and the health of your career will flourish. Stories will be told and the word of your good works will spread far and wide. Teachers, seminar leaders will enjoy their travels and long term alliances with foreign companies will enhance your reach. Underlying happiness with doing the good work of Spirit will please your Soul.

Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune, silently slipping out the back door…possibly offering help and healing secretly. If thieving, they could get away with it, so use your common sense regarding security matters. If you think something is amiss, go get a good look, with a witness if possible. In Scorpio, Mars can tap powerful community connections, people good at getting finances lined up, people who believe in you and the special things you want to do. Mars in Scorpio is super sexual, and with Neptune, transcendent! Mars can be formidable in Scorpio, but the tenderness of Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces, is beyond words. Neptune’s sensitive perception, psychic abilities, awareness of nuances, can save so much time and bring a bond never to be broken. Many times, less is more.

There have always been Magical thresholds, sometimes called Moon Gates! The Mên-an-Tol, (the hole stone) in Cornwall, United Kingdom is also known as the Crick Stone. This Bronze Age monument has been standing in West Cornwall for nearly 4500 years! See more, it and others all around the world, how to build them. Stones are one of Capricorn’s passions. You can build one yourself!

Maybe it’s your time now!

Healing Jupiter Virgo Chiron Pisces Uranus Aries

June 20, 2016 note: The last set is August 12 and 13. This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. 2016 opened with the second of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with the first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron – different sign, reversed aspects! What we are doing now paves the way for the next vantage point. In Libra we can incorporate our findings and these new living skills into our relationships! Blessings on your Path. See more!  


First we had Jupiter in Virgo opposition Neptune in Pisces Sep 16, 2015, one time only. Now we have the opposition to Chiron in Pisces, Neptune’s sign, coupled with the inconjunct to Uranus! The Nov 3 opposition with Chiron is the first of three, the second one Feb 23, 2016, the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon. The inconjunct with Uranus is three times too, first Nov 5, the second Mar 6, 2016, two days before the total Solar Eclipse Mar 8 at 18 Pisces! Their third aspects are Aug 12 and 13, 2016, opening the gateways for the almost 26 degree Leo/Aquarius Lunar Eclipse Aug 18, 2016! 26 is always an important degree since 26 Sagittarius is the degree of the Galactic Center/Core!

Oct 7 Jupiter starts within the activating 5 degree range of Chiron. Oct 18 Jupiter is within 3 degrees activating the inconjunct to Uranus! These two are acting together from then on until the exact aspects Nov 3 and 5! This first set all three planets will be at 17 degrees. In Feb/March they will be at 20 and 18 degrees. The third time, in August, all three will be at 24 degrees. So your charts won’t be activated all three times unless you have factors at or quite close to all those degrees.

Virgo, Virgo, Virgo! This means there has been and will be a lot going on along the Virgo/Pisces axis! There are these three outer planet aspects 3 times each, a Full Moon, and a total Solar Eclipse! In addition, Jupiter will square Saturn twice from 16 and 13 Virgo; and there’s the Super Mega trine it makes to Pluto from 13, 17, and 16 Virgo!

Oppositions and inconjuncts are from here to there! Oppositions are straight across the table. You know your enemy, or potential friend, face to face. There’s no doubt who you each are. Inconjuncts are from one sign to the sign across but to the left or right. They are usually harder to read, easy to ignore and pass by, but their presence can also be nagging or irritating, make you twitch. Like an interesting detour or side trip, you might be glad you took the time to introduce yourself and see why they are there! Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Chiron in Pisces. Uranus is one to right of Pisces, in Aries! Big difference!

These are Alpha and Omega signs! Pisces is the last of all the signs, Omega. Triumphant completion, happy and sad endings, maturity, the foundation for future quests. Pisces has compassion for all the struggles of the aeons, sees the needs not yet filled. It makes music, sounds without words, that cross all gaps of communications, age and languages. Next, Alpha, is first sign Aries, built for speed, spontaneous unquestioning action. It’s the first responder, on a mission! It fights the good fight, is the defender who scraps for the cause, lights the way and people follow!

Jupiter in Virgo so wants to heal and serve, do the right thing. Chiron is referred to as the wounded, healer, teacher. Another one wanting to heal despite any personal pains it might have. The first lap of the journey might be looking at hurts from the past, even at the Soul level. They might be difficult to discern since they are invisible, been with us forever, a seeming part of our fiber. It may take some delicate dancing to tease them out, strip them away fiber by fiber. But a good Virgo weaver can do it, untangle the knots, reweave until there is no noticeable flaw. Ironically, it often takes awhile to get used to your new life without the bump or tear. Feels a little funny….

Once the hurt is healed, Jupiter is free to pass the skills on. Apprentices appear. Jupiter wants to use more herbs, be outdoors, take time off away, seek methods in foreign countries from shaman healers. Chiron believes meditation, art, music will heal the Soul as well as the Body. Dance, refresh with a swim, take an ocean cruise, use special salts. Balance of work and play matter. It’s important to have right work for the Spirit to prosper. Uranus in Aries in the mix brings in cutting edge health research in addition to the ancient remedies Virgo uses to this day!

Uranus in Aries is impossible to organize, and it sizzles with hum, disturbing Virgo’s set up. Drives Virgo a tad crazy, but keeps them awake, on their toes, and humming! Jupiter, however is curious and half the time follows the Pied Piper until Virgo grabs the reigns. If Virgo can’t stop them, at least it can sorta get them in a direction. It just won’t be the direction Virgo exactly had in mind in the first place. Being off course can make some delays, but may bring diverse tickly information that tweaks the system to an even better process. New things will be tried. Uranus in Aries is not completely immune to Virgo’s common sense. In fact they may pester you for advice. But don’t be surprised if they are off in a twinkling with their new treasure. Between the two, there can be a quite fruitful result. Expansion and revision go hand in glove!

Uranus is afraid to be told what to do and when to do it, lose its freedom, but Virgo’s experience proves it saves time and everyone gets to go to the beach sooner! Virgo knows for a fact that Uranus is going to upset the apple cart and sure enough does. Yet, the research and outcome make for a virtually enlightened technique! The craft is consummate, the style like none other! Get thee to the patent office!

Work that is special, makes a difference, makes for excellent health. Working with others for the same wonderful goals puts differences into perspective. We see how each contributes and our hearts are full. Uranus in Aries is community collaboration of many gifted leaders. More can get done in a shorter time than ever expected! Amazing results! Be there!

Willingly stepping into the world of these three will open you in ways you didn’t know needed opening. Pisces is subtle. Virgo sees when things are slightly out of order. Jupiter laughs, gives faith and perspective. Chiron is Master at knowing long term trauma when he sees it no matter how cleverly disguised it is. Uranus darts into the most momentary opening like a lightning bolt, and there’s no going back, the lights are ON. Things are fragmented into working size bits. Some pivotal matter about you will be healed.

Remember, there are three passages. Record in your life notes what comes up the first time. It may seem like nothing at first, but becomes something importantly symbolic as you ponder it along the way, as your subconscious works it in the Dreamtime. Deliberately take a look back at the previous time/s before the second (retrograde) and third events. Work it well.

Wishing you freedom and sweet new beginnings.

FYI  2016 opens with second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus.

Dec 17, Full Moon at 1:28 AM Pacific 25 Gemini 36

Full Moon Old Faithful, YellowStone!

No planets are very close in a major aspect with our Sagittarius Full Moon.

What we do have is Mercury, traveling in Sagittarius with the Sun, in close aspect with Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, along with Ceres, prominent again as in the New Moon chart, in the tight 4 planet 17/18 degrees pattern.

Mercury inconjunct Jupiter  Mercury and Jupiter are kin in a way because they rule opposite but related signs of thinking. Mercury (of Gemini) is famous for gathering data and telling anyone who will listen all about it!  Jupiter lumps the info into categories, giving significant insight to its connections and purpose.  As Mercury continues the input, adjustments are made, fine tuning intentions. Jupiter inspires with the sight of the vision, the rainbow oracle, focused on a best possible outcome!  Both of them love learning and travel.  Mercury scoops the neighborhood.  To Jupiter the world is the ‘hood!  Near and/or far, together, they tell jokes and stories, each elaborating on the other’s, play the drums, dance the circle.  Kokopelli, musician, magician, trickster, keeper of languages, storyteller, has left home on the journey of a lifetime!

Ceres square Jupiter   Squares are usually thought of as challenges, but with Ceres in social Libra and friendly Jupiter in Cancer, if the party is in the home territory, it can be lovely!  Jupiter may not be taking off on that world trip after all.  Or, if it does, it will be more sensitive in Cancer, culturally aware, and considerate of women.  Jupiter and Cancer are both proponents of lifelong education and sharing the wisdom.  Libra is aware of the laws of the land, respectful of local etiquette, sees its value.  Ceres, Earth Mother, goddess of agriculture, a foodie, has common ground wherever she goes.  Breaking bread together equalizes disparity.

Jupiter is still trine Saturn, but retrograding away….  Serious progress has been called for and made!  Jupiter has infused doubter Saturn with more confidence.  Now he is going back to pick up some threads still waiting to be further livened and folded into new structures Saturn is so skillfully building! Bigger windows, wider vision, more time.  A broader purpose is possible, more far reaching. There is more joy on the job!  Yes! Long term commitment has successfully been negotiated.

THREE Fixed Stars!  Spica and Arcturus both at 24 Libra, and Algol at 26 Taurus, straddling the degree of the Full Moon!   

  • Spica is the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden and at times is associated with Ceres, Goddess of Harvest! Uniquely it is a binary star, actually two stars that whirl around each other in only 4 days!!!  In Horary astrology, Spica was/is considered to be the only point of good fortune, very fortunate at that, along the Via Combusta, the oasis along the fiery way, 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio. It can bring riches, love of arts and sciences.
  • Arcturus is the 4th brightest star in the heavens!  There is contradictory thought about it.  Some say it brings treasure and high-ranking positions, honor and prosperity through navigation and travels. When it is not well-aspected, and in certain placements on the zodiacal wheel, Arcturus may bring betrayal, ruin and poverty, and storms that ruin your crops and down your ships! Mostly, however, it is thought of as fortunate.  It wants freedom, has innate charm, and a potential for fame!

The Sun is just one day past having sextiled Spica and Arcturus, such fortunate Stars.  And sextiles are considered to offer fortunate opportunities! Libra and Sagittarius, air and fire, go well together.  Libra gives finesse. Both love meeting people, mingling with other cultures. Sagittarius is happy to make the arrangements, guide and escort Libra wherever they might enjoy to go, introducing them to everyone!  Mama Moon opposite in Gemini will be trining the two stars, which she does once a month, just not under Full Moon conditions.  She will be the telegraph for the wisdom of these places deep in space.  The conduit may be brief, but of prime importance is the perception of HOW to think, where to gather the data, when to be present, how to open to deeper connection – follow the breath, how to speed the ability to link one thought to the next. It’s half logic, half psychic.  Know what you are doing but don’t question it. Let it happen.  Watch it happen, so you can do it again!  Great time to see your Channel or BE the Channel!  Time for automatic writing, the laying on of hands.

  • Algol, 26 degrees Taurus, is entirely another story!  The Sun will inconjunct Algol the next day.  Algol is another binary star, in the Perseus constellation, in the head of Medusa.  It ‘eclipses’ itself as the stars whirl around each other, blinking on and off, every 3 days. To the Ancients, it was thought of as dying and being reborn! Our word alcohol comes from the word Algol. We can loosen up at parties, or are dehydrated, lose control, sometimes crimes and mistakes are committed.  Diana Rosenberg says ‘The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime.….Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity. These stellar challenges are not to be feared, but understood and used in a positive manner.’ Traditionally it has to do with death and pain, transformation and power.  If you would like to read further about Algol, historical events and their charts, see Nick Kollerstrom’s Mountain Astrologer post.  Read further thoughts and Algol with famous people by Marina E Partridge.

For those of us connected to this 24 to 26 degrees, we will likely have some blessings and some real things to face specific to the nature of the stars and these signs, Taurus, Libra and Sagittarius.  Taurus and Libra are both Venus ruled, so, possible matters of values, what we want, how to be more attractive, better self esteem, conditions of relationships, are in mind. Being kind to others, crossing cultural boundaries could make a difference. More lovely lodgings with supportive people may be healing. Center yourself, get grounded. Be at Peace in the storm.

Clearly, we all have these 3 stars somewhere in our charts, and they are afoot in the heavens every day!  It’s when moving planets connect to our personal chart planets, or connect to the planets of an event chart, that they activate per the nature of the connection. Fixed stars move only a few dozens of seconds of arc per year, or one degree every 72 years, approximately.  They are on the compass of eternity.

Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 4 Sag 08
Friday May 24, 9:25 PM Pacific

Our third eclipse of the three this Eclipse Season, is in the 14 day Gemini Stellium, 4 planets in Gemini, and only 4 days after the third Uranus square Pluto!  After some difficulties, there is much to consider.  Spread out your hand, lay your cards on the table.  Talk it over.  Differences of opinion may find common ground.

In Spiritual context, the Aries Full Moon is considered to be the celebration of the Christ Love; Taurus, the Buddha Wisdom; and Gemini, Humanity, the Word.  Gemini is the sacred connections between all Beings, whether it be touch healing, shaking hands, the spoken or written Word.  Gemini is the living Breath of Life itself, you connected to our Universe.  And it has to do with mind.  How you think is how you shall be.  The Mind is a potent instrument.  Awareness, attention, focus.  One teacher says ‘Where your focus goes, your energy flows.’

Vivacious!  Jazzed with the Life force, we are delighted to follow the mosaic, stepping stones take us where we never expected to go!  Side trips are exultant with enrichment!  No complaints!

This Eclipse is honored to tell Neptune’s story through a T Square, Neptune at its T point!  Neptune is currently in its own sign Pisces, the Mystic Dreamer, Visionary!  Gemini has so many exciting ideas, and the Moon in Sagittarius generously places them with purpose, and plans the Path to come.  Neptune can take you across the ocean, or meditate and make music to guide you to your spiritual home.  All are teachers of a kind.  Gemini gives Spider Woman’s fabric (connections) to race around on.  Sagittarius journeys, stretches, to the furthest corners.  Neptune, the Pied Piper, listens deeply, holds silence within, enchantment, until you ‘see.’

Saturn is watching closely, within a degree, from Scorpio, secretly weighing and measuring, estimating timing, steadfastly making decisions, perhaps small, but key and potent.  What may appear to be silly on the surface may be serious after all.  Saturn in Scorpio is astute, doesn’t miss a trick.

The Venus, Mercury, Jupiter conjunction in so few degrees, with Jupiter last, points toward Intention being Kingmaker.  If you have your goal in mind, your decisions will be made in your best long term benefit.  Collective results will add up, the whole being greater than the parts!  To your prime success!

New Moon  at 18 Gem 01
Saturday June 8, 8:56 AM Pacific

Venus and Mercury have moved on into Cancer, the Moon has joined the Sun making the New Moon in Gemini, and Mars has jumped into Gemini!  Jupiter, doing a sign a year, remains the anchor.  Communications are still emphasized.  Saturn trine Neptune June 11 is a potent part of it!

The New Moon at 18 degrees, is in no close aspect with any planets, but inconjuncts the Moon’s North in Scorpio by just over 1 degree.  These nodes span from Taurus, their past, to Scorpio, what needs doing.  The values range from what’s mine to what’s ours.  A balance is sought over being secure in oneself and being able to let go into intimacy, personal power and/or the corporation.  Taurus is right here, right now, a reliable founder.  Scorpio has the ability to be private, obscure at times, able to bide their time, hold a silent position of protection.  Gemini can be a chatterbox, a flit about, so is quite different than these other two signs.  Taurus usually loves a kiss on the nose, and Scorpio can sometimes use a bit of cheering up, even if you can’t tell that happened!  So toss them a smile and let them know you love them no matter what anyway!

Mars has importance having come into Gemini at this time, because in this chart, it connects with the Grand Water Trine formed by Venus to Saturn and Neptune.  This is super important because outer planets move slowly and don’t often make connections.  Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces will make their second exact trine just 3 days later, June 11!  A water trine, with quieter planets like Saturn and Neptune can use the spark of Mars!  Grab the Light and get going; be willing to stand for your cause!  In your own way, of course…  Venus is in the Moon’s own sign cancer, so is tied to the Moon, and thereby the Sun, since the Moon is with the Sun, making the New Moon.  Water is the special element of feelings.  Cancer is the Great Mother’s Love.  Scorpio is the love of one’s Mate.  Pisces is the love of God, Soul, Spirit.  These are all profound parts of the harmony of being.  Venus puts sweetness, Grace in the Mother’s love.  Saturn bestows a deep sense of commitment and responsibility in the love of one’s mate.  Neptune gifts us with the great merger, Oneness of all beings, compassion.  Mars in this combination keeps Venus from being lazy, pushes Saturn out of his box, challenges Neptune to do more than sit in meditation, acts on the insights – there’s a cause to be fought for, don’t let us down!

A wild card in the chart is Mercury mixed with the Uranus square Pluto!  Since your recent discovery, you may surprise your self by what you say.  You may be shocked by incoming info, but still delighted, for some crazy thing someone says that makes you know you can be different too!  Could be a child or someone who looks very young, has a childlike demeanor.  It may be something seeps through the layers, revealing a feeling from childhood, or you connect with a friend from way back when.  Be prepared to love it and leave it!  It’s not a keeper.

The New Moon might make you pensive.  You might prefer to think more than talk.  It’s ok just to take some time out, or chat quietly with your family, especially your Mom or daughter.  Love is kind…blessed be.

Gemini New Moon June 8, 2013 Astrology Chart

Our moons this time are in Gemini and Sagittarius, mutable signs like Virgo and Pisces.  The mutable signs form 90 and 180 degree ‘stress’ relationships with each other, have quite different temperaments, and are all different elements.  Our moons being Air and Fires signs, they generally get along with their own – Air Libra, Aquarius, and fire Aries, Leo.  Always consider the whole chart, both of yours and the event, and whether you have factors in close degrees with the Moons.  If you don’t, they may have little effect on you personally, versus a potentially powerful effect if you do!

Monday Feb 25, Midday Full Moon 7 Virgo 24 at 12:26 PM Pacific

This Moon is in the time of the 44 Day Stellium, building to 6/7 Planets in Pisces on our Mar 11, 2013 Pisces NEW MOON!  This Full Moon will unfold like a flower blooming, and be vented through the Moon in Virgo, the sign of finding the right places for things for their most potent production!  This one won’t leave things entirely to mere chance!  There IS Divine Order!

We have 5 planets in Pisces this Full Moon with Venus going into Pisces just 5 1/2 hours later at 6:03 PM, making it SIX!  The Sun has already crossed the Pisces planet Neptune, bringing Light to otherwise dark shadows and spiritual visions!  It is now carrying forward the insights gained Monday through Wednesday Feb 18 to 20. It’s next Light station is its annual conjunction with Chiron, the ‘wounded Healer/Teacher on the 27th.  We will be ever more aware of what pain we have carried and will see ways to clear it, share our way of moving beyond it, through our personal conduct and teachings.  Joining with Mercury, retrograding back to meet him, the Sun will conjunct exact on Mar 4, illuminating ideas that wouldn’t have been realized but for seeing them from this different perspective.  Rather than the faster planet catching up, each planet is moving toward the other!

Mars will leave Pisces, enter its own sign Aries, before the Sun can reach it while in Pisces.  Mars is virtually streaking along, and the Sun just barely makes the conjunction with Mars before they both leave Aries in April.  In fact, if you allow a 7 degree orb for this pair, they start in potent closeness in Aries on Vernal Equinox, the day the Sun enters Aries!  They hold this active conjunction for 28 days!  This is important, because the intentions you generate at the Full Moon can be carried forward and enacted given the right percolation and brewing, then pouring your energy into the right chalice!  Be your own champion!

Jupiter in Gemini will be within a mere 5 minutes of space at right angles, TSquare, to this Full Moon!  It will give voice to Pisces, amplify Pisces perceptions, teach the insights.  Jupiter will carry forward Virgo’s system with good will, keep the project alive with seeds of further ideas, keep the primary intention.  This is not the time to be opinionated, but to observe and open to broader opportunities, ways of healing, a coordination of mind and matter.

Virgo Moon will trine Pluto, sextile Saturn in the afternoon and evening.  These are serious companions, wanting more than ever to do what is good in the long term.  Do what needs to be done now, jot down notes of what you see to do to carry on and complete the valuable process.  Steady on.

Pisces Full Moon 2013 - Stellium!


To see the Mar 11, 2013 NEW MOON, please see the Magical 44 Day Pisces Stellium!  Blessed be, these are special times.  Heads up, eyes open!
