Libra 2019-20 Celestial HighLights

Libras ~ Brains, Beauty and Balance! Justice for All!

Libra 2019 The Justice League

The Justice League

We’re all doing what we can. It may seem small, a daily affair, but may be pivotal and crucial just the same. You may have great expectations then be surprised when in retrospect you find what you have done was heroic in it’s own way. Be true to your Self; strive to be that better person you hope to be. Share your story as you go; others need that inspiration. It isn’t always easy though it can be plenty honorable.

Brains are certainly a curious variable. Libras are noted for the kind that is quick on its feet, whether dancing at the ball, in the courtroom on a case, in a dangerous situation in the street. They can be impeccable in their morals and strength in behalf of fair treatment for a defendant, justice as appropriate. Great battles for Spirit are waged, won and lost, for individuals and groups of people. Some attorneys are striving to update laws that are past their time.

Beauty is a powerful force, an irresistible introduction that can start a lifelong connection, cross all barriers. There is charisma that has no facial recognition. There is cultural beauty. There is timeless beauty and popular beauty symbolic of certain times. There are kind hearted people, people who have instinctual Grace. There is childlike sweet beauty of innocence and the beauty of elders strengthened with age, maybe softened with age. There is the beauty of human creation in photography, dance, art. There is intrinsic beauty that crosses all ages and cultures. There is the beauty of our natural world.

Balance is a tricky condition that can change in a moment. Tightrope walkers across an abyss, an abyss of life as we walk it. Kokopelli would laugh gleefully! Your local Counselor sweats it out with us as we try to sort ourselves out. Mediators walk a fine line between their clients who are full of passionate feelings and needs. Hearing both sides changes not just the clients but the mediator too. Ambassadors are both emissary and negotiator of private holdings or international connections. Respectful communication is often a delicate situation. Anthropologists link us through the times of our culture and cultures of many world beings. We expand our understanding, get a hugely greater perspective, often becoming more of a world citizen. Shamans hold a sacred place balancing our past lives, physical presence, fleeting feelings that change a mile a minute, our attention and perceptions as we progress and awaken from step to step, our Spiritual Self, Soul Purpose that keeps it all under one roof! Quite a feat!

Justice for All! Sounds good. It too is a living evolving entity. Justice 2000 years ago was different than it is today. Justice changes wherever you go and with every person you speak with. It applies differently to people of different ages, your race, sexuality. It applies differently per economic status, and to earth’s lands and locations. Water quality has been an organic issue. Air quality is next. Libra, an Air sign, will be called on. What basic rights do we have? Do we have the right to grow our own food? For people to have shelter? Is climate change fiction or a factor to pay attention to?

Libras are humans too. We expect them to make our personal lives better, to save us from bad circumstances, to tackle the most crucial matters of the world today. They can be dedicated, work day by day relatively flawlessly. If you are partner with a Libra, do a few things for them. Check for burnout signs from time to time. Take them to restful places. Art museums can fill their souls. That symphony, a play. If your Libra is a public figure, take them out of town, even out of the country. Though they are super sociable, sometimes it’s just good to get away, to do some uninterrupted thinking, to maybe think about entirely different cultures, refresh their perspective.

Libra was never born to be a drudge or field worker, a dirty sweaty hiker, or to work in the ER with blood. They need pastels – pretty pinks and perfect ivory tones, maybe slight breezes, clean space in a lovely home. They love flowers – blue, bluebells, orchids, gardenia, and their favorite, symbol of peace and love, large roses. Graceful classy clothes. Museum quality art, sublime music like the exquisite blend of a sophisticated orchestra. Food by the master chef, and superlatively nuanced wine. They are like ornaments in our life except when they are in that courtroom. Then they mean business!

Famous Librans: Four planets in Libra Serena Williams, three planets in Libra Neve Campbell, Matt Damon and Will Smith, and Susan Sarandon, Francis of Assisi, Chuck Berry to name only a few. April 5, 2019 Forbes said Libras are the number one sign of their billionaires! ‘With notable billionaires including Ralph Lauren, Stefan Persson, Liliane Bettencourt, Alice Walton, Libra is the star sign of 27 famous-wealthy faces. Following closely behind is Pisces, with 22 billionaires, including Bernard Arnault, Rupert Murdoch, and Michael Dell.’

We most kindly thank you, Librans, for your many fine contributions!

Libra 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Astronomy Libra Oct 3 2019 Jupiter Moon Antares

.
As darkness falls, you might spot a twinkly ruddy star popping out in the vicinity of the moon and Jupiter. That’s Antares, the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. Although a 1st-magnitude star, Antares pales next to Jupiter, which outshines Antares by some 16 times.

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky! As Bob says We live here – can you believe it?’

Libra Overview of Year to Come!

Libra 2019 Abbey Clancy waltzing Des’ree hit Kissing You with Aljaz Skornajec.
.

Winning performance debut by Abbey Clancy waltzing to the Des’ree hit Kissing You with Aljaž Škorjanec. Abbey has a rare bundle chart. They both have 5 planets, including Venus, in Capricorn. Abbey has Venus conjunct her New Moon!

We are still integrating the findings of the Sep 21 Jupiter square Neptune. This was the third and last, but the accompanying aspect Saturn sextile Neptune is yet to come Nov 8. That sextile, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center will all be during Mercury in Scorpio Retrograde. Retrogrades call for reviewing, updating, turning old soil that what’s buried may come to light in current time for an updated remix! in Scorpio that can be particularly intense involving relationships with self and others, monies, clearing our body and lives, a rebirth of sorts! Jupiter at the Galactic Center will be during the 8 day Mercury station as Mercury goes Direct, forward. Stations are important because they ‘fix’ the instillment of the meaning and current needs of the sign Mercury is in, how to communicate them more successfully.

This Retrograde is particularly important because it holds the Transit of Mercury! Mercury transits the Sun exactly, forms an Eclipse of the Sun! Scorpio seeks the deepest meanings and is a powerful sign to receive the Sun’s transmission. The Light is powerful and Scorpio is a sign of righteous darkness. So some of what Sun sends will be transformed to internal use, the organic reasons for our choices for survival. The Light also shows what is hidden, maybe a seed, maybe a flaw that needs healing. This is no small feat. The Light isn’t always easy to process nor comfortable, but we will be better for it. As the old masters say, ‘Steady in the Light.’

The first Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune set was at 14 degrees. In June they were at 18 degrees. Jupiter has been challenging us to expand our vision in the square, to seek a greater truth. Saturn says ‘I see the part of this that has value, how can we make that happen?’ Jupiter and Saturn have continued closely in degrees, though after the Sep  21 aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees! So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors at 15,16, 17 degrees you will be connected to all three sets!

Nov 8 concludes the six aspects with Neptune, all happening while Jupiter is in its own sign Sagittarius! At that time it will be exactly a year ago, Nov 8, 2018, that Jupiter went into his own sign Sagittarius. These aspects with Neptune, the Dreamer, have opened our senses, making us aware of new dreams and beliefs, how to make them come true! Times have changed!

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter then Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn conjunct Pluto prepped with demolition, Jupiter with Pluto will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event as well as observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the retrograde Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit of Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s Box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven, Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions will be taken in deeply – blended, separated, assimilated, hybridized, united, mingled and mongrel. Yet, the original elements of the receiver, yourself, and the message are forever as they were when the infusion occurred. You are eternal as is the message. Because of that, we each will express our understanding from our own primal energy at this time of our Soul’s journey. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Libra may be challenged by the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn. But they are both related to law. Libra is lawyers; Capricorn IS the law! Capricorn can be strict in its interpretations, tends to be old fashioned. Libra can go either way, but at times puts up a fuss to update the old ways with a model of new fairness and justice. Times have changed. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown! 

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the on average 34 year exact conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with activator Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it

There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean.

April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. Whatever demons or glory, tragedies or triumphs formidable Saturn with Pluto shall have faced, Jupiter will optimistically pick up the pieces, repurpose, or create worse! Jupiter can make bad bigger too. If it isn’t worse, Pluto will see the promise of profit financially and spiritually. It will be an explosion of clearing for future works, secrets discovered, major funding attained, ‘keepsakes’ will be in the plans to be built ~ like a mini renaissance, yet more secrets will be made too. Bad will be healed, the rest is hallelujah! LOTS of big news! Super power plays will abound as the Nov 3 Presidential Election approaches.

April 4 and June 29 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto the first and second times. From the second week in March through July, most potently April 4 through June 29, Jupiter closely conjuncts Pluto the entire time! The opposite prediction polarity, compared to the paragraph above, is it can be mass tragedy, even evil personified. More powerful secrets made, concealment and lies to cover. Be ready to help, protect yourself and others until this period passes. Seriously start making alliances with capable and trusted family, friends and associates now. Keep your emergency kit and supplies up to date for on-the-ground environmental conditions likely in your area, have a plan in mind. The aspects will hold, be potent at 21 to 26 Capricorn. If you have factors at or very close to those degrees you may be called into action. Challenges for Aries, Libra and Cancer, Gemini and Leo. More easy for Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces.

The third and final Jupiter conjunct Pluto is Nov 12, at 22 Capricorn, the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto! This aspect is the last major aspect link of the whole set that started Oct 30, 2018! It carries the experience of the previous two Jupiter/Pluto aspects, is the upcoming aspect when the Presidential Elections are held Nov 3 2020. Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs up to Dec 2, 2019! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Instead of 3 planets in their own signs, we now have 3 outer planets in ONE sign, Capricorn – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto! Jupiter in Sagittarius traveled, played, had us consider our principles, educational choices. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change you request makes sense. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose. Saturn is a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers Jupiter and Neptune, enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable.

1940/41, 1983, and very briefly in 1998, 3 outer planets were potently together in the same sign but in different signs each time. This time it will be 50 years before three outer planets will be in a same sign again, and it will be potent right from the start! Jupiter conjuncts Pluto and Chiron at 2 and 3 degrees ARIES, March 13, 2070! With stelliums, like these, the planets bring their different talents together, have like mind, and are in Unity of Purpose per the sign they are in!

Two outer planets change sign during Libra’s coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius enters Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn enters Aquarius Mar 21, 2020, retrogrades back into Capricorn for a review July 1. Jupiter’s sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to new, additional goals. Saturn, quite at home in his own sign, suddenly finds himself on unstable footage in a sign quite unlike himself. Yet, Aquarius carries on the good work for all the world and a wise Saturn has more business than ever! Saturn guiding will make it all the more potent. While Capricorn loves the status and money, be guided by keeping your work in service to all. With earth changes, we will find ourselves working with many others in diverse environments under unusual conditions. Aquarius will expand your business, mission, if you let the changes work for you. Blessed be.

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along in their semisextile. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey together in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. In Libra’s coming year they are exact twice in their signs Aries/Taurus at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, and June 10, 2020! See more about Chiron/Uranus

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making the last of this year’s plans! Soon the 2020 Edition will be out! Make your changes count.

May you dance to your happiness in your New Year!

Outer Planet Transits with Libra 2019 – Sep 2020!

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Libra 2019 Library Portals of Wisdom

.
Libra is a time for wisdom seekers, finding a balance in the intricacies of the Universe and between peoples, within oneself. Maybe this is an elegant genteel law Library housing cultural research, records of precedence.

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus orbits at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years. They are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

  1. Pluto, and while in Capricorn, Saturn and Jupiter will be challenging to Libra. Libra sees both sides, likes to smooth the edges. Capricorn says the law is the law.
  2. Neptune in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus are double inconjunct Libra, forming a Yod. They will instigate adjustments of vision, compassion, a revolution of political and economic changes of values, the greater considerations of humanity and cultural differences.
  3. Saturn in Aquarius, Chiron in Aries and Jupiter in Sagittarius will favorably lend a hand to Libra. Saturn knows the power of group action and has connections. Chiron inspires Libra to stand true to himself. Jupiter makes far reaching plans with Libra, keeping a long term perspective, encouraging faith.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto is moving from 20 to 25 Capricorn during Libra’s year to come. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in itself a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 23 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Libra negotiates relationship, loves big roses. Pluto, the planet of the next sign Scorpio, wants seriously deep relationships, with incredible and life changing intimacy! Pluto loves the beauty Libra shows both physically and in considerate interactions, but Libra may not be as passionate as Pluto can be. A prim Libra may find Capricorn cold, but he can be an excellent provider and he is so proud and grateful for her on his arm. However, if the rutty goat lets loose, she may become a bit slutty herself, and be astonished at the passion of their union. Whew! Libra is a lot artistic, and Capricorn may think that’s a waste of time, has other expectations of her. Well maybe he gets her into business to sell that art! She wants to go to the symphony; he falls asleep. She loves being with people; he may be ‘old’ and tired after a long day’s work. But if she’s a lawyer, they may do some kick a__ business! Pluto and she can do some steep political wrangling, negotiate terms, work for human rights, set up frameworks for others to follow. Libra can be the lovely amenable front person, then be tough as nails in the clinch. Lord help the boss when she’s up for a raise!

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last sign of the zodiac, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune may be oblique to Libra, but is one of the few planets that can understand Libra’s delicacy, refinement. He may call her to the waterfront to see the grace of the dolphins, the mists of the sea, a slight wind in the sails, the charm    of the antics of shorebirds. He shows her the solitude of forever so she forgets that what people think of her matters. He shows her storms where your only thought is survival. She comes to know the Soul is a big place and balancing life is now more inclusive, different. Sitting at the shore they can cross oceans together. On the cruise, she sees new art and ways, hears the music, touches the people and smells the foods of different cultures, what they love, how they relate. All those things become another part of her. Some things become a lot less important and others so much more. Neptune opens her Spirit.

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 10 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. A lot of earth changes we are witnessing are massive, coming suddenly, hot and heavy. The very land is changing, affecting food supplies, water sources and location choices about where to live. There is a lot of instability financially. We need to have backup funds, supplies, stay flexible. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

Taurus invents simple. To freedom lover Uranus, being in Taurus may feel too slow, too close for comfort, so unexciting. Taurus may freak out, and they rarely do, at the sudden upsets to his routines. Or Uranus being in his sign may be the most fun he’s had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Uranus himself is shocked to find walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! It’s a whole new dimension compared to that desk chair in the still dead-air plastics scented office! Taurus may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Supercharged divine body electric!

Libra is an air sign as Uranus is an air planet. They are both thinkers and communicators. Libra brings people together. Uranus invites Libra to up the ante and bring groups of people together! Why do a single suit when you can file a class action suit and change the world?! Uranus uses social media, whereas much Libra legal work has to be done off media. Libra so respects person to person differences, and that is grassroots technique that further brings leaders of different groups together. Taurus is another Venus sign. In Libra Venus looks for beautiful people, art that shows potential ways of life. Taurus looks to the earth it stands on with bare feet, nature’s way of being. It’s organic. As Mercury in Libra Mary Oliver’s poem ends, “…the flowers were dressed in nothing but light.” She has combined both Taurus and Libra! Libra has a fine sense of scent and may just kick off her shoes and go with Taurus. Uranus may be different, but smart Libra has no trouble with this forward thinking new friend. They each have a certain class all their own. Libra, sometimes bored with the same old, same old, loves that Uranian genius and he’s delighted to be heard and admired!

CHIRON will be in Aries through 2027. In Libra’s year, he will cover 1 to 9 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021, 13 years. Chiron has become more future minded and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more In Aries, the first of the zodiacal signs, Chiron is becoming a more fiery shaman, takes unprecedented healing action! Uranus’s sign change into Taurus is, grounding the thunder maker. There is a shift in the foundation, now starting to hold steady.

If you have Chiron in these degrees, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the head, brain and eyes. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! In Aries, loving independence, he may start his own business and may be reluctant to marry…

Libra is fairly amenable to befriending most anyone, but this one comes in wolf’s clothing and might bite! Libra doesn’t always easily stand up to assertive people and Aries is max! If Libra has chosen a Chiron healer while Chiron is in Aries, that may be just what Libra needs to build confidence, be inspired to take a stand even if it is uncomfortable. They are tired of not feeling well and are relieved to try something new. Libra works for peace and harmony, balance. Aries is delighted to knock you off center just to get you going! Do something even if it’s wrong! You can fix it later, ha, ha! Libra may feel annoyed, aggravated, huffy, how dare them, yet there is a wee twinkle in their eye as they somehow know they can and are going to do it! Just pretend it’s ballet and act gracefully as you fall forward, LOL! Chiron is happy you are on new ground and your eyes are open again! Aries is a leader and Libra actually just doesn’t follow anybody! They are more than just pretty, and this time their true talent is going to show! Like me or not, I’m changing and will find my way. They are quick to adapt and all of a sudden you don’t recognize them anymore!

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

Saturn is working the mid to last half of his own sign Capricorn! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! The experience you have depends on how Saturn is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Those of you with Saturn 13 – 29 Capricorn have your Saturn Returns now through Mar 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.
  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! They say what they think. There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. or just being quietly alone is peaceful. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elder hood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in his own sign, Earth sign Capricorn,is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids! See more!

Libra needs to be careful around Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. It’s like a double dose. Libra is sensitive to dreary darkness, being trapped, too much continuous down feelings. Maybe your partner isn’t able to work right now. Libra is a sensitive air sign highly aware of others. Air is so permeable. Just a presence or frequency can disturb their equanimity. They air flows freely above the earth. If in a windowless room with close neighbors, freedom is lost and it’s a prison. Overbearing continuous noise, arguments, take over. Extended depression, sadness, loneliness are not good. Saturn can try to control, block, have expectations that have nothing to do with what Libra is about. If your partner or you are having trouble, you might consider counseling together and separately, or leaving that relationship is there is no change in a given time. It may not be good for your health. See about changing homes to a place with more light and air flow. Give encouragement. Get your Libra partner up on their feet, get them out and doing something that makes them feel they are contributing something valuable. A small beginning can make a big difference.

Now, clearly, we are in the world! Sometimes that person is your boss, a coworker. Some Saturnians are hard working exciting people to be around! They are inspiring. If you are being a lazy Libra, scared of failure, Saturnians can be most understanding. They have made their share of faux pas, and know how it feels to be scared you will embarrass yourself. They also know that getting to work is good therapy – and you get paid for it! Certain rules of being got that way for good reason! Since Saturn is the Law and Libras make good lawyers, they have common ground there. Saturn says take time, make time, one step at a time. No matter how pretty Libra is, unless you are in the modeling business, it is often, by itself not enough. Saturn works to do good, to do the work of the Soul, Dharma. That is a greater quotient than worrying only about ourselves. It is bigger than we are as a single human. Do something that makes you feel gratitude to do it and satisfaction when you are dead tired and wish you could do more! Do that artwork; run the gallery. Do and teach dance; have a studio. Be the curator at the museum. Negotiate in behalf of people who can’t yet do it for themselves. Please.

Aquarian Saturn Returns start March 20 to July 1, 2020 at 0 and 1 Aquarius!Later, the rest of Aquarian Saturn Returns will continue through March 7, 2023. Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all-encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now, for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time while they do. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit and union. Many amazing like minded friendships may come, or if you are overwhelmed or need time to recenter, you may take time away and enjoy being on your own. If you are in business or want to spread the word about a project, your networking can go worldwide through social media! Concentrate on humanitarian and sustainability facets of your ventures and investments.

Saturn in Aquarius Is easier with Libra, another air sign. The Saturn matters are as with Saturn in Capricorn. Aquarius adds an element that frees and changes things no matter how hard Saturn tries to hang on to the status quo. Yet Saturn senses the inevitable and tries to make the changes in a more balanced manner. It steadies the wheel, integrates the old with the new, like rebuilding an old car or renovating an old home and it becomes more valuable. Libra can wonder why to go which way. Saturn can talk it through and help. Libra’s sense of balance helps him to see both sides and they both are glad to have considered the events. Saturn wants Libra to make it look much better than it did before, to consider the happiness of the people involved and get them to be co contributors. The project might be for their benefit, so their input and taking part is essential. Saturn sees the place of it all in the world today. That inspiration brings Libra in as negotiator, to work with the science and the inventor who may be ahead of his time, and the community at large. Unlikely relationships may be established. Progress and sustainability keep us healthy spirited.

 

JUPITER moves from 17 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

Jupiter stays big in Sag, his own sign, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fail to impress. He can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you ‘need it more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sagittarius with Libra wants true justice. Jupiter rules judges; Librans argue the case. Jupiter has a broader perspective due to his extensive traveling. He calls to Libra to consider the wide elements in a situation. What is true for one may not be for the other. Sag is quite aware of cultural differences that may impinge on solutions. Jupiter may not be as ‘nice’ as Libra and sometimes Libra sees the blunt truth may cut to the chase, save time, wake people up to the reality at hand. Jupiter may want to sweep Libra off someplace for himself. Libra may be intrigued, overwhelmed, not so happy to rough it with this sometimes unrefined person. Yet fire and air are compatible and at worst they part well, each satisfied with the adventure. Jupiter loves to teach, share stories, and Libra is a quick on the uptake. If they build a school together, it will serve many people, include a generous art/music curriculum, superb anthropology offerings, extensive courses on law/ethics/politics, with perhaps many scholarships available! Libra may want to marry; traveler Jupiter in Sag is hard to nail down. Libra loves being together; Jupiter has to breathe long distance. Travel industries, imports/exports may be the sharing point. If Libra is feeling poorly, Jupiter may scoop you up, jam out of town and take your mind right off those things. You forget your troubles and Jupiter’s big cheerful smile assures you all will be well!

Jupiter in Capricorn  Jupiter fairly streaks through Capricorn, getting to the 27th degree, almost completely through Cap, by May 20, 2020! At that point it retrogrades and continues in Capricorn until Dec 2020. It makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories spread the news. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits and carefully make small trial investments in great sounding whims. Check things out. If you have doldrums or dours, Jupiter can exaggerate your condition. Yet, Jupiter is a mover, a fire planet that won’t stand still, so in no time at all, Jupiter is likely to cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, and they are righteous about it, no mincing words or wants! Libra is impressed with the strength of their opinions and will hear them out. Libra will try to make adjustments and accommodations that are fair and balanced for all. Capricorn tends to be conservative, even a bit old fashioned, a protector from radical change. Jupiter is almost religious! But Jupiter has also traveled and often has a broad education, perspective. Libra enjoys that mix, dependable law and order and insights to the ways of other peoples. Changes will be recommended with the will to expand business, to keep up with the greater happenings of the times. Careers that are inclusive and grow with the times will succeed. Libra likes social work and Jupiter will make sure there is education and the client will be helped to be responsible too. Jupiter may encourage Libra to illustrate the progress of the project. Capricorn likes historical records across the chasm of time and change. There may be a serious offer made, whether business or marriage. Be a little on the cautious side. If there are huge demands, promises are too good to be true, remember hearts are not to be bought or sold. If in doubt, wait. Time will tell. See your astrologer.

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have depends on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Librans! We are so very blessed you are with us!

Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

Switchbacks at Utah’s Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, Walter’s Wiggles! If we are going to do two retrogrades in a row, and overlapping – both at once for a week, whether descending or ascending, we might as well do it elegantly in great Beauty!

March 20 Note: Venus has been retrograde since March 4. Mercury starts Rx during Aries, April 9. Venus goes direct April 15. The DOUBLE RX is April 9 to 15!

April 19 Note: Venus is now direct, moving forward since April 15, finishing her whole cycle May 18. Mercury is retrograde April 9 to May 3. For perspective I’m leaving the Venus retrograde information since it happened first and overlapped with Mercury retrograde, flavoring Mercury retrograde! Plan ahead for Mercury station conjunct Uranus April 27 to May 9!

For your advance planning ~~~ trips, moves, weddings, significant purchases, remodels, elective surgeries, investments, taxes, job changes or reviews. Venus involves your love life, money and values, art and beauty. Mercury typically has to do with signing papers, snafus of all sorts, appointments, mind changes, reversals, breakdowns, electronic failures. Retrogrades have three parts. First is the time the planet goes forward. Next is the retrograde period when it goes back over that same ground. Third is when it turns Direct, forward, and goes over the same ground the third time. Often, having a change of direction, extra work to accommodate the changes, delays, drives us crazy. Given time, from the different vantage points, and as other planets move along, we see the values in these adjustments. Without switchbacks or retrogrades, sometimes we might never reach higher ground had these events not have happened. New vantage points show us how to incorporate new facets in our lives.

Venus Retrograde

Venus sweetens from 13 Aries 8 back to 28 Pisces 54! The whole three part cycle starts Jan 30, finishes May 18 with Venus Rx Mar 4 to April 15.

Venus does make beauty and kindness, money and love. Retrogrades make changes, omits, misunderstandings, mistakes, adjustments.

Venus in Pisces dreams, commiserates and blesses, is music, magic and miracles, lives for the beauty of Soul. Your understandings, beliefs and desires will shift, can even take 180 different positions and return back to your original position even wiser! The idea is to flow with the tide, rise and fall with the swells of life. Be as whole as you can, make Magic as your insights and visions carry you forward. Pisces can be a gentle sign, or the deluge of a tsunami! If things come too fast it could be scary confusion, feeling lost. Lay back on sugar and carbs. Avoid overindulging in social drugs, alcohol; arrange to have a trusted friend to see you safely home. Water sports and businesses, especially related to the ocean, can make significant changes, select new teachers.

Venus in Aries wants what it wants, now, and takes the action needed to get it! They love being first, prize being leaders, are quick super athletes, are great dancers, put in stunning performances! During the Rx you may find your style changing as to how you do these things! The warning is not to overdo it, be careful not to hurt your head or eyes. Sweet hot sex if you’re lucky! But have that sex with your established partner. Many don’t recommend first time sex during Venus Rxs. There is a quality of rebellion and you could get in trouble with dares. You may not get away with it this time, so please be careful, and try not to break the law in front of the officer!

Aries is often impetuous, but most astrologers would not pick anytime during Venus (love and marriage) Retrograde to get married, elope. Only if the compatibility charts were exceptional, both parties have exceptional progression and transit aspects at that time, and the marriage chart is chosen for the best aspects it can have that also are in splendid harmony with both birth charts. Otherwise, some unions are karmic and will be as they are.

Mercury Double Retrograde!

DURING Venus Retrograde, Mercury starts its Rx cycle, and part of its Retrograde time is during the Venus Rx time! So we have a double Rx April 9 to 15! This is a wee bit of a complicated time with two overlapping cycles and Venus and Mercury each changing signs as well. Mercury will move through 24 Aries 15 to 4 Taurus 50. Mercury is Rx April 9 to May 3.  It makes sense to see your astrologer for details about how this activates your personal chart.

At the time of the double Rx, Venus will be in Pisces, Mercury in Taurus. The degrees are not close, so they will be operating independently of each other. That means in two different houses of your personal chart, possibly even four houses, will be activated. They may act together for you depending on the personal linkage of your planets.

Mercury in Aries is quick to see what’s happening, often distracted, maybe jumps to conclusions, or it’s all in your head. Its speed can save lives, tilt the world in a new direction, blitz by old hurdles! It can be impatient, angry, get down to head butting! Get going or get outta my way, but mainly it just wants to do things! It is a leader that inspires confidence! New projects may finally be undertaken, or fail because they are ahead of their time, there are more considerations than realized. Plant your seeds then plant more seeds! Caution signing papers, even if an expert advises it. This is likely not the time to be impetuous. If you are never impetuous, maybe you should give it a try! Do your best.

In Aries it is very likely not the time to do electional face surgery, elope, buy a new car or mechanical items. If you can wait, fix the furnace or air conditioner later. Be careful about head bumps, your brain/skull, eyes. Put in fire alarms well before the retrograde.

Mercury in Taurus takes its time, maybe too much time, but is the most stable of these four combinations. Sometimes it resists change and is thrown off by shifts in routine. Yet, if Taurus has become tired without realizing, changes may be just what the Dr ordered! Your land may change, your garden, your flowers, trees – earthy things. Taurus is your neck, throat and thyroid. If there are any questions, have a checkup in advance, especially if singing or entertainment is important to you. In general, Taurus is ownership and a solid untouchable bank account, but what we want may surprisingly change during this Rx. A generous gift may be expected and you might have a dilemma about what, how much, or whether to give.

If you make investments, do only test amounts during both retrogrades because Venus (money) is Taurus’s planet. Your thinking about what is attractive can easily change. Not a time to buy a new wardrobe, furnish your home, do a remodel or buy a comfortable car. Whatever you buy, get receipts, buy from well standing companies with excellent return policies, get the warranty. If you sign papers include a review clause so it can be changed, canceled or extended within a reasonable time. You set the time for your next job review time.

Mercury stations with Uranus April 27 to May 9! Super intelligence, a friend returns and leaves again.

Plan what you can, the Creator will do the rest. Good luck and Grace be with you.

Scorpio – Fires Within

Wednesday Oct 26 | 12.56 PM Pacific | Super New Moon | 3 Degrees Scorpio   This is the 5th of 2011’s 6 Super Moons.  Super Moons are when the Moon is 90% or greater of its closest approach to Earth.  When it is a full moon, it appears as much as 15% bigger!  They indicate more intensity, higher tides, strong storms if there is one, higher seismic activity.  This is a NEW MOON, and Scorpio is noted for intensity of the deep dark water variety!  Records could be set, relationships could start or crumble, there could be revelations about money sources, resurrection of old alliances, brushes with death, healing through saturation/immersion, miracles!  Time alone may be deeply needed and appreciated, a transfixion of quietness.  This is happening midday, so you may need to get away, take a bit later lunch, to meditate or have a private meeting.  Being a new moon, perhaps it is small beginnings, let things grow in their natural way.  The temptation is to use force, but avoid pushing at it, causing a distortionate break or growth ahead of its time.  Being only two days before the Jupiter trine Pluto puts it in that aspect’s hot zone!  There may be an ebb then a leap!  Read on….

Thursday Oct 27:  Occultations are Eclipses too, not just Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.  Oct 27’s Moon occultation Mercury is our last of the year.  Moon is emotional, Mercury is logical, and they are making a merger!  Feel what you think, say what you feel, but be really careful because this one is in Scorpio.  You can’t take back what you have said, and it may cut deep.  If a conversation even hints at turning South, let it go, NOW.  There may be an unanticipated price down the road, even revenge.  And it takes a lot of effort to repair, sometimes can’t be repaired.  The other side is someone may tell you something more valuable than you even realize at the time.  You may be healed or given a key piece of information that transforms you, your situation, relationship.  And it may be a blessing in disguise.  There could be an ending that serves you well in the long-term, and actually has been overdue.  Be able to engage, listen big, disengage if needed.  It’s a life skill worth having.  This is especially true this occultation because first Mercury is activated by its direct alignment with the Moon at 22 Scorpio at 7:08 PM, then the Moon passes over Venus at 23 Scorpio at 9:23 PM, just a little over 2 hours later!

First the New Moon quiets us, making us thoughtful in behind-the-scenes observant Scorpio, on the 26th.  Then the Moon, Mercury, Venus combination makes us extra aware of home and family, about love, the 27th.  It opens our capacity to attune, speak our love and affection, to kindly and potently tell what we want, both personally and in business, to see more clearly how we can make the money to support ourselves, loved ones, do things we naturally love.  These are the catalysts and a poignant part of the forming Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the very next day, the 28th, at 9:46 AM Pacific!

Friday Oct 28 Second Jupiter trine Pluto at 5 degrees Taurus and Capricorn.  This and the Jupiter sextile Chiron (the next one will be Dec 6) have been the aspects that have kept the Stock Market up this year.  Jupiter is expansionary, lucky, wise, foresees the directions things will take, is optimistic, will take long odds and win!  It has an extraordinary ability with perspective, watches the big picture, is playful.  Can’t keep a good Sag/Jupiterian down!   Pluto is the planet of wealth and Chiron of business!  Pluto cleans up messes, is expert at rebuilding after losses, recovery from illness, never says die!  When in top order, it is a clean machine!  Deep and internal cleansing, firing people who are not able to make the returns needed, are its forte.  Though at times painful for the recipient, in the long-term, the move is usually the best and reform and transformation happen.  Jupiter wants space; Pluto wants mergers and deep intimacy.  So, if a merger happens, it is probably a better deal than usual.  There has to be a real attraction for Jupiter to see a future in it and accept the transaction.  It will likely be a long-term value.  See more at last month’s pre Jupiter trine Pluto post.

Jupiter is fame, fiery, education, and speed sports; Pluto is death and healing, charisma, power.  The first trine was July 7 – on  July 8 we lost Betty Ford, died at the age of 93. She was known primarily for her work post-whitehouse and for founding one of the most famous rehabilitation facilities (The Betty Ford clinic) in the world. Widow of former president Gerald Ford.  Coming into this second trine, we have lost two.  1) Steve Jobs Oct 5 (4 degree trine): Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple, died due to  complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Jobs was known for his keynote speeches that were given each year to update the loyal Apple followers, as well as his enlightening interview style.  2) Oct 16 (2 degree trine): IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon died after suffering severe injuries in a spectacular 15-car wreck at the Las Vegas Indy 300. He was 33 years old. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year’s event) was critically hurt when his car sailed over the top of another during a massive, fiery wreck on Lap 11.  Ironically he had been driving test cars to avoid exactly that.

All of these people made powerful contributions, each in their own way.  May they rest in Peace.  And may we LIVE this aspect well, and carry on its teachings with Grace.

Saturn turned direct, forward, June 12, but is still holding a one degree orb, range, to his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) until July 8.  As said last month, ‘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!  Now’s the time to turn around, take it forward!’

Jupiter is now well founded in Taurus, up to 3 degrees, working its way to the Retrograde station at 10 degrees!  Familiar degree?!  It will be stationary at 10 degrees from Aug 15 to Sep 14.  To me this is significant because this is the other sign VENUS rules.  Libra, and Taurus.  It will hold this 150 degrees, quincunx, inconjunct, away from the 10 degree Libra position that Saturn is now holding.  Taurus and Libra both have to do with love and beauty.  Taurus is of money and worldly goods, a lovely body to sculpt, earth herself.  Libra is of marriage love, grace, and etiquette, fine arts, exquisite landscapes.  Saturn in Libra has called us to build this Libran beauty into our lives, each our own way, to take time for grace, allow a patina of maturity, respect.  Jupiter in Taurus invites a recognition and acceptance of organic, intrinsic being, what is, basic values.  It senses a solid step in the ‘right’ direction.  It sees a broader beauty that comes from simple peace.  Yoga.  As Swami Krishnananda says, it is ‘a perceptional change, and not merely an act of doing something with your body.’

In this case, in the sequence of time, Libra has been first, Taurus will follow.  That’s in reverse of zodiacal order.  So humans and their personal balance, and their balance among our peers comes first.  How we treat our self, each other.  If we don’t treat ourselves well and have bank of grace with some to spare, giveaway, how will we be magnetic and attract beauty, with the financial poise that brings peace?  Sometimes a perfect storm clears the path; other times, a gentle fearless course, a smile at your enemy, dispels the battle, quells the defenses.  Through the lovingness of another (Libra), a courtship of Spirit, we are blessed with seeing, feeling, we are so very ok to BE our Self, just the way we are (Taurus).  Divine.

Fascinating combination, Jupiter in Taurus.  In Taurus Jupiter is grounded, toned down, less needing to wander off, pleased with where it has landed, becomes more the observer, offers options for expansion.  Taurus is jazzed up with Jupiter on its turf, gets curious with the ‘what ifs,’ is a wee bit more motivated, less its predictable self, dabbles in foreign affairs.  The rolling stone gathers no moss.

This is the Full Moon of the Buddha celebrated worldwide.  The Buddha is thought to actually come to Earth in a Himalayan valley. Sitting as the Buddha, being grounded and centered, feeling completely aware of everything/nothing, having gentle compassionate wisdom, total peace, are what we seek. With two outer planets, Jupiter and Uranus, still in Aries, it might be more like Thich Nhat Hanh’s walking meditation, riding your bike long distance in the Zen of the flow.  But at the time of the Full Moon, there are FOUR planets in early Taurus, a stellium, starting with Venus, Taurus’s own planet, Mercury, then Mars, all three closely together in conjunction.  The Sun is last, at the end of Taurus.  Mars, Venus and Mercury are the planets associated with the first three signs of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, as if in summary of the three sacred festivals of the first three Full Moons of the year, Aries The Christ – Love, Taurus The Buddha – Wisdom, Gemini Humanity – The Word! 

Taurus sits on the rock, walks in focused prayer and silence stopping to listen, touch the trees, tip and sniff the flower now and then.  It is one with Nature, loves the touch of all its textures.  Barefoot on soil presses minute particle to particle, draining away hysterical fear, replacing it with a neutrality from the soil that allows you to be free to see simplicity.  A Tao Te Ching phrase that has been with me a long time is ‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Till right action arises by itself?’ 

Scorpio Moon?  Taurus is mine.  Scorpio is ours.  Sharing.  Mutual funds.  A gathering of resources from the deepest realms.  The Native American Underworld where power is sought, faced alone, Spirit your only Ally, imbued with a Sacred Trust.  The Greco/Roman mythological underworld of Hades.  Christian celibacy; tantric sexual intimacy, a merging beyond words.  The Pagan life sustaining storing of goods for winter sharing, a living reservoir of human connection.   

Goddess Mother Moon, GrandMother Moon, lights these ‘dark’ places as fully as She can, with her Night Light, a gentle, more bearable Light, than the Light of Day.  This is a time to look upon the silver strands that connect us, absorb their meaning.  What binds us?  Money, Love, genetics, nothing we can explain?  Is it time to step across the barriers, cross the threshold to the next level?  To return to our prime mission?  To let go and keep walking?

Walk it, share as you can.  I will be being mindful the evening previous the Full Moon, and the 17th, in planetary prayer.  The Sun and Jupiter will be in the degree of the Galactic Center.  Join me in Spirit if you wish.  By your grace.

We have Ascendants, are descendants of those who went before us. Why not be Transcendents?!

And how do you do that? Most of all, if you are making good progress yourself, how did you do it, how do you teach others how to do that? Not only are we transcendent, but we bestow transcendence – another level of transcendence!

By example is, perhaps, the simplest. Just do, be, the thing you want to see happen.  Like a smile.

With empathy. Compassionate understanding of different abilities, personal histories, past lives, can make an incredible difference when nothing else makes sense. Be alert to the needs of others, their capacity, readiness.

Tease the Spirit into play. Do things that are exciting, engage happiness! That could mean blood moving exercise, art that pulls the heart, giving tools of an enticing trade, maybe a video camera or keyboard, sailboat, vineyard, dance tutoring, a trip to a sacred place event – could be a meditation retreat.

Keen Spirited Pisces Photographer Ansel Adams

Feb 20, 1902, a true Pisces visionary see-er, Ansel Adams, keen musician, amazing Photographer, is a great example.  He did what he loved.  Sun & Mars in Pisces, Mercury trine Neptune, the Pisces planet, both retrograde. Blessed with an eidetic memory. Member of the Sierra Club, his images of Yosemite all seasons, were breathtakingly inspiring.

Education and Sales are close cousins. Each hopes to inspire you, telling you all the virtues, forms of transference of mental wealth.  Your offering can be made seriously with quiet grace, or shouted laughingly with ‘Let’s do it’s!

However you go, minute by minute, year by year, dramatically or minutely, seen or completely unseen, internally, transcendence happens. Evolution is. Grace is. Not one other person may ever understand or ‘see’ you morph. Yet it happens. A day may come when people look at you and say, ‘You’ve changed.’ And, yes, you have.

It takes the time it takes. It is honorable. It is your Soul’s way of learning its own kind of temperance, spiritual patience, an internal strength and courage.

Blessed be. In gratitude.  Keep your Light shining and your vision clear.

We are now on the threshold of Chiron entering Pisces for 7 years!

SEVEN years! Those 7 years will be in the same time Neptune is in its own sign Pisces, which starts April 4 for 15 years!  That happens only every 168 years, and WE get to live it!!!!  Double, even triple , magic of misty watery Pisces!  And Neptune enters Pisces during the super charged firey Aries Stellium!  It’s going to be off to a tremendous start!  What it dreams, it does!  Complete and perfect intuition inspires instant responsive positive action!  Pisces can be shy, even timid, until it gets a cause to live for!  Then, by God and Great Spirit, things happen with bells on!  I hope you are graced with inspiration like none other, that fills your Whole Soul!

Jupiter left Pisces Jan 22, now passing the baton to Chiron.  Jupiter was the precursor, looking for truth (Wikileaks), opening up then focusing on the point of selection, looking for the good in all ways.  Chiron is considered to be a wound that happens, or a wound that needs healing.  And, is considered to be a healer; it knows how because it has been there.  Which begets the teacher! If you know how to heal, you can show others.  Pisces loves being the savior or being saved, so it looks like a good fit. Spiritual business will be done.

Healings may be more subtle, invisible, invincible in Spirit.  Spiritual wounds of feeling forsaken, misuse of spiritual power or powers, fear to step out of the shadows of past life ‘mistakes’ or punishments, living without mission, or matters of mercy, may be kinds of healings that occur both to oneself, and, or in behalf of others.  They may somehow find mending, a quelling of misspent imagination, an inner reweaving of the strings of life as twined with others’ hearts, in a sensitive moment of seeing from a different facet or vantage point of compassion long-awaited.  There is a gentling, and yet a tsunami of merging, not just looking at a person or situation, but seeing it as if you were the other person!

The Magi astrologers tell a different, or perhaps an additional story.  They say Chiron is the #1 marriage factor in charts, love heals, and is a great business planet!  Partners make more money!  Marrying in Pisces is a cautions affair however.  The worst is just plain denial, then the words ‘I just can’t believe it!’ If your friends say you are missing the signals, I would get the credit check and give it some time to prove out.  The other side is marriage made in heaven.  In surety.  A gift of union Spirit-made.  May you walk in Beauty.

Businesses that are of a Pisces nature may flourish!  Anything ocean related, musics and arts, dancing Spiritually, retreats, magic and intuition, fine wines to feet treatments, computer programming, films, theatre, visionary repertoire, tending eyes and how we see, conscious dreaming!  Throw in the spice of Chiron, and we are adding a business of curing whats needed in any of those fields, a marriage blend of any of those elements, the consultant, coach, seminars that uplift our goals and ideals!  Blessed be.

Chiron enters Pisces Feb 8, Neptune April 4!  Marriages, healing, business, magic!  It will be a spiritual renaissance for those willing, ready, and able! Music and art will fill new dimensions.  Compassion and insight will be called for as the world tussles with resurrection after Pluto in Capricorn topples the old ways to the ground!  Stand tall, Live deep, LOVE well!

Please refer back to Chiron from Pisces, back into Aquarius, July 20 to Feb 8, 2011!
