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!

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!

Robert Pattinson

All Taurus, May 13, 1986, Robert Pattinson, is a Brit, played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Quote: ‘Please don’t give me all my luck now. Make it all stretch. I don’t mind waiting. Make it stretch for 70 years.’ He’s a double Cancer – Moon and Ascendant, with his Taurus Sun sextile lucky and famous Jupiter in Pisces! Venus in Gemini gives a wonderful voice.

One of the beauties of earthy Taurus is they just ARE. No need for explanation or discussion. Just be yourself. That’s peace. Don’t need to please anyone. Dress comfortably. Go barefoot, get next to Mama Nature. Everything has value, fits in its natural niche. Doing what you want to do, what you naturally enjoy makes the most sense. Simple. This heart charm is attractive along with often the beauty of a sweet smile, lovely skin, sumptuous curves or great muscles! Hard work farming and eating well and organic go hand in hand with radiant health. In modern city culture that may translate to an urban garden, yoga, lifting weights. Strength is a Taurus asset, whether it is physical prowess, or the patience and perseverance to build a foundation that serves many, to love daily. Safety and regard are cherished traits that people feel they can trust. Reliability builds that trust. Once a Taurus is inspired to action, completing the job is just about guaranteed.

Beauty is a functional asset. It attracts people to your support as a person. It brings people to your cause. The magnetism of your performance draws people to love what you and they are doing so much that they must take care of themselves as well, to continue doing what is so good. Beauty is anywhere from your unique style of action, your endearing idiosyncrasies, your funny smile, exotic voice, to what our culture deems a fine physique, lovely body!  Think on what attracts you to things, to people? Is it emotional security, something that reminds you of a beautiful time in your life, exquisite music, a lovely place in nature, similarity to a loved one? What can you do to make yourself more attractive, more YOU?!  That’s all it takes. YOU are ultimate. When we are exactly that, Peace IS.

Now for some odd Taurus stats from Security Gripes:

• Murderers convicted is 11.4% lower than average (that’s a good thing)
• Burglary with convictions is 13.1% above the national level (Tauruses love to own things!  Sometimes kleptos. :)  )
• Military leaders of the world is 23.2% higher than any other sign (who would have thought?!)

No statistics on this one, but they are usually great huggers!!!

Sagittarius - Bowl of Life! From Here to There!

This image may be a still life, but your life isn’t!  Sherrie Wolf knows how to capture perspectives of a Sagittaritan – abundance, distance, views of high places, a sense of joyous upwelling wellbeing! 

Did you join me in gathering things in your Sagittarius Bowl Nov 30 until today, Dec 13?! 

I find a wide array of items in my bowl today!
  1.  A now falling apart red rose
  2.  A randomly torn page from a book I threw away, too many personal notes it, that encourages one not to look to others for approval….
  3.  Pointy Acorns, one big, one little
  4.  Dried seed pods from a seaside mesa Neighborhood Garden Exchange
  5.  A small ceramic bowl with kitty drawn in it, gift from a garden friend
  6.  Shiny liberty $1, gift from an elder gentleman recovering from cancer
  7.  Some soil
  8.  Mary Wessely’s tarot counselor’s business card, The Sun
  9.  Package of Livingston parsley seeds (seeds again)
10.  Mini package of rice (hmm….more seeds)
11.  Persimmon leaf
12.  Liquid Amber leaf
13.  A sprig of brilliant flame colored fall leaves

I have enjoyed this fall season.  Great hiking weather.  Winter Solstice only a few days away now.  My bowl does tell some of my journey these last few days, has many stories in it.  The gathering bowl I used is an Italian bowl my dear step-daughter Ellen brought back with her.  It is painted gently with pink flowers, about 2″ high, 8″ diameter.  Please, tell me about your bowl and what you put in it!  What happened?!

Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn has brought two people back into my life, both returning to Santa Barbara after long absences, 20 years, and 30 years!  It is not uncommon in these retrogrades for items and people to return.  In Capricorn it brings matters of long standing, often related with one’s Father, matters of the rules.

Today is also the day of the 5 conjunctions!  Use it well.  Our next Bowl, in Capricorn, the Third Bowl of 4, will be Dec 28 to Jan 10, 2011.  Subscribe to stay tuned!
