Chiron from Pisces to Aries! Belgian Designer Vincent Callebaut

Astonishing Belgian artist and author Vincent Callebaut designs sustainable buildings with flow and innovation beyond average thought! This is a multi-purpose complex for Nasr City in Cairo, Egypt. More

Jupiter sextile Pluto, traveling closely, sets the stage for three months! Just after its last aspect April 14, 2018, Chiron makes the first outer planet sign change of five in 2018 three days later on April 17. Jupiter in Scorpio hopes for the biggest and best future possible. Pluto in Capricorn wishes to heal the way, clear the path to build that future Jupiter has its sights on! They have set up a brilliant plan and part of it will be carried out by healer, business person and partner maker Chiron! See more about Jupiter sextile Pluto! 

Before Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron is in Aries April 17 to May 15, 2018! 28 Days we have two outer planets in Aries! Exchanges of information will be carried on, Uranus counting on Chiron to mend any gaps Uranus leaves behind. In effect Uranus passes the baton to Chiron!

They will again both be in Aries for 16 days in 2019 from Feb 18 to March 6. It’s a final check in and checkup. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries after its retrograde. Uranus has retrograded back into Aries, is finishing that passage, re-entering Taurus, leaving Aries March 6. Review April 17 to May 15, 2018. Polish up the details, finalize the good foundation for them in their new signs. Strong new beginnings are vital.

The Aries Mercury Retrograde cycle at Chiron’s sign change sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change forward, direct, at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 4 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them.

Chiron has a highly elliptical 51 year orbit, spending 10 years in half of the signs and 40 years in the other half! It was 7 years in Pisces, 2011-2018. It will be 9 years in Aries, 2018 to 2027.

Chiron is now finishing its zodiacal cycle, in the last sign Pisces. April 17 it enters Aries, the first sign, for a preview. It sees inspiring new ideas, what to be done next. It retrogrades at 2 Aries July 4, returns to Pisces Sep 25. The new ideas are compared with the dreams Pisces has and are intuitively scanned for how they best fit for the greatest good, and the best procedures to implement them. Chiron doesn’t turn forward until 2019, later returning to Aries for keeps.

Chiron’s nature is to heal and teach due to a mythological ongoing extreme suffering imposed by others with more power. He was unable to change that, but he was a hero! He learned so much, taught so much, in spite of this suffering. We can all do something, a kind word, recognition of that hero quality in all of us. In Pisces there is an added savior quality, one who first saves himself, best he can be the living example, that he may save others. Every day we see hundreds of loving examples. Mothers, Dads, teachers, ministers, nurses, hospice workers. Prisoners who fight fires. Builders who rebuild the lost homes. Animal rescuers. Be so aware. See that greater quality in each other that we often take for granted. Do your part best you can. You are part of the divine fabric; it’s so important you uphold your position.

Aries steps forward in a passionate blaze of Light! Chiron carries the healing forward, instantly stepping in as soon as it sees the need. It invents instant techniques, takes the chance and saves the day! Aries takes the risk when others would hesitate. They are fast in their Spirit, blessed with split second awareness, and ride their bikes! And they keep trying! Aries is not considered a sign of partnership, but the Magi astrologers consider Chiron to be the planet of marriage! Chiron in Aries might make an unprecedentedly quick move. You may not be able to resist, but if possible, give it the standard tests of time. If you don’t respond quickly enough though, they may move on without you. You might feel you made the mistake of a lifetime, or you might be so incredibly relieved you didn’t! Chiron also is considered to be a business planet by the Magi. 2018 there will certainly be a time of recovery for many – in the US, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. So many have been displaced and torn from their lives as they knew them. New businesses will be born as people collaborate to build new lives. Bless them all for the heroes they are.

Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces Sep 25

Sep 22 is Fall Equinox, the time of balancing our forces, equality. Sep 23 is the glorious Aries/Libra Harvest Moon, light in the night that calls our spirits! Aries is the first sign, independent, while Libra is working together, reunion at the end of the day to share the evening meal. Then comes Chiron back from Aries, returning to Pisces, the last sign, Sep 25. Pisces is all Souls, the All-is-One. There is the binding Unity of Being. We all live, we all die. We all sleep, we all awaken. Pisces reinforces the Union of Brother and Sisterhood, dreams we have of higher good, service to and for all.

Back in Pisces for the rest of 2018, Chiron searches the archives of Spirit, to find the core purpose for being. An ultimate compassion is further awakened. Art and music are sought as venues of expression that take us beyond words. Time is chosen for silence, listening with our entire being. Pisces takes us to sea, negative ions. We let the waves wash over our feet. We release our sorrows and fears. A subtle cleansing takes place and we are more free to see. Namaste.

Life, our part in it, has more meaning than ever. Chiron may take us back to school for a review or to bring us up-to-date. We upgrade our perception and skills. We may learn more about how to teach. There are so many techniques worldwide. It is more common now to mingle learning with spiritual or alternative techniques. Relationships are more precious. Friends, mates, business partners. Business calls for genuine encompassing caring, research showing the interconnectedness of all enterprises to us and Earth herself. It is not a time for rebuilding, but building anew. It is time for a more ultimate sustainability.

Chiron’s part in Pluto at the Ecliptic Oct 30!

Chiron is not just involved in its own sign change, but in the profound place change Pluto is making, going from above the Ecliptic to below the Ecliptic at its South Node!

Oct 30, 2018 at 5:13 PM Pacific Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! It is a phenomenal 248 year aspect! Pluto, another healer – the number one sign of therapists, the life saving midwife, hospice worker, financial wizard, and more – is getting its batteries charged at the Sun’s path through the heavens! What Pluto will do, no matter how small, is heal, cleanse, as much of the critical junctures of the Ecliptic as possible. Sun’s spiritual Lightway will be more clear and transmit more brightly. The actual time period is several years long since Pluto only moves three degrees a year, and the Ecliptic is a big place! See more!

On that day, 4:32 PM Pacific, Moon in her own sign Cancer arrives to make a Grand Water Trine with CHIRON and Jupiter, all at 28 degrees! If you have chart factors at 26 to 0, you are activated! Jupiter trines Chiron exactly Nov 1 at 4:43 PM Pacific! POTENT! Moon is comforting and nurturing, brings good food. Jupiter, considered to be a lucky planet of hope and faith, is now in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign! It boosts the entire process! It sees the broad, most inclusive opportunity, gives perspective on life and death matters, focuses on good will to all, including the darkest, almost lifeless, and the most dangerous. Chiron in Pisces is empathetic and troubleshoots the most needed spots. He will teach them how to help themselves.

Looking at 2019 after the 2018 aspects…

The final shift into Aries is Feb 18, 2019. It will take courage to take on key leadership positions to make change. Chiron will heal leaders who take on the battles to save lives, establish more equity, show us all better ways to partner, do ethical business, replace the old guard. True champions and heroes will come out of chaos.

Again, Chiron in Aries, will not be alone as Uranus finishes his last days in Aries for 84 years! They will be together. The final baton pass, for 16 days, is from Feb 18 to March 15, 2019! Chiron is healing any casualties after the wild explosion of Uranus in Aries, which literally there are. Many states in the US experienced years of drought and resultant fires. There is a completion of perusal, and some of the vital new learnings. In this case, about managing fires, our learnings are already incorporated, being used, fine tuned  and anchored for future use.

Wishing you well… So much gratitude to those of you on the front lines.

New Year’s Day Full Wolf SuperMoon!

Monday Jan 1 at 6:24 PM Pacific, 11 Cancer/Capricorn 38! 

Capricorn 2018 New Year Full Wolf SuperMoon

Wolf Dog at SPIRIT RHYTHM & BONE!

How FIRST can you get?!

Happy New Year! First Full Moon, Wolf Moon, of January and 2018! And it is the closest – and thereby the largest Supermoon of 2018! This Full Moon is the second in a series of three successive full moon SuperMoons occurring on December 3, 2017, January 2 Capricorn/Cancer and Jan 31 Aquarius/Leo, 2018.

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, Neptune is in Pisces his own sign, and with Saturn newly in his own sign Capricorn, we have THREE planets in their own signs on New Year Day! Two of those are outer planets that hold long term meaning. They give us time to absorb, try out the many facets of their expertise in the sign they are in. Cancer is home, family, especially women and children, and our feelings, support for our wellbeing, cycles in our lives. Neptune is the Spiritual Master, maker of music, takes us to sea, heightens our senses. Saturn is the TaskMaster, dedicated to his work, gives financial support, rules Moon’s opposite sign. Traditionally Moon and Saturn, shelter and career, Mother and Father, are united in the cause to make a good way for the children.

The Full Moon lets us into 2018 gently with her exact aspects with Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Moon trines Neptune, each intuitive, each supportive in their own way. Moon sees motion, cycles and rhythms. Generally she operates current time, makes sure we are fed and comforted, sleep well and helps us with daily family interactions. Neptune is more concerned with the greater good of all beings, our Soul, life’s meaning, is an observer of trends and our place in them. Moon serves more locally. Neptune would have us sacrifice and serve globally. They both love art and their sensitivities blend the color beams and meanings until they become one. The strong citizens Cancer grows become citizens that lead our communities.

Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune. Capricorn is the living example of responsibility, Light in action, Love accomplished. Sun Lights the way and cheers our hearts, gives the strength to follow Neptune’s dreams. Capricorns collect the working materials to build what was invisible into a work place that inspires us to make dreams come true. Capricorns are dedicated believers when they ‘see’ the way that makes ultimate good sense. They know how to bring teams to the table, aligning all their talents so perfectly. It’s just a matter of time. Sun carries Neptune’s energy forward, Venus is nearing, so you can bet Neptune’s dream will be full of grace and brings irresistible beauty. Venus will conjunct Sun Jan 8, and Venus and Sun conjunct Pluto Jan 9! There will be a blessed culmination, a grateful ending, the deep wellsprings of a new beginning, Light in places that used to be dark!

Beautiful Grand Trine/Kite in Earth and Water signs! Moon leads the formation, pushing off beyond her usual territory. She is strong in her own sign, spurred by Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio, guided by Neptune in Pisces, also in his own sign! Water signs heal and help. Moon loves her children and ‘knows’ when there is trouble. Scorpio reads his partner and the deep hidden things that need healing in all of us, impurities we carry that impinge on all others that come in contact with us, helps us safely off load and detox. We see more clearly. Pisces helps us tune in to the greater banks of spiritual wisdom, to merge and develop compassion, raise our frequency to a more refined level, global consciousness.

On the daily basis, securing safe quarters, connecting with good schools is important to Cancers. Scorpios secure the funds we need and do tremendous healing that frees us to act on our dreams. Pisces throws mysteries our way to whet our thirst for exploration beyond the average expectations. Of course there is more! We dance at concerts, go to the art museums, maybe church on Sunday, meditate and do yoga. People keep doing fantastic things! Fascinating things seep into us and we change, sometimes without even realizing.

Now, I did say Moon has the lead. But there is a lot of weight on the other side with a four planet stellium in Capricorn, Saturn in power fresh in his own sign! The weight of the whole chart is on that side! Perhaps it’s the whole group leading the way! Capricorn can be like a dozer, pushing through stubborn obstacles! Saturn knows when people are fearful, stuck in their ways, because at one time or another they have been there themselves. They know just how to get them motivated. Respect first by inviting not ordering, dangling carrots next, rewards and payoffs that make a difference. And it doesn’t have to be money! In one spiritual system, Capricorn is the sign of Ceremonial Magic. It is a sacred ritual to care for people this way. Cancer hugs, feeds, cleans up some of the mess as the whole system moves forward.

And I will be radical. Maybe they take turns leading!?

Mercury has some great big ideas in Sagittarius, but square Chiron in Pisces, Chiron isn’t ready for them yet. So keep a file of ideas to be pursued later. Find ways to talk about them that doesn’t overwhelm the more gentle folk. Learn how to drizzle them out, leave a breadcrumb trail until they can catch up, getting them used to the bits and progression of your ideas as they come along. They will be plenty excited when they arrive, thinking they thought those things up themselves! Smile.

The powerful long term background aspect is Jupiter sextile Pluto exact the first time Jan 15, the day before the New Moon! They travel closely together FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14. This aspect is strongly placed in the SuperMoon chart. The Moon trines Mars then Jupiter Jan 1 & 2, then Mars carries the energy until it conjuncts Jupiter Jan 6 and sextiles Pluto Jan 8. Moon, powerful in her own sign Cancer, trine Jupiter in Scorpio could mean incredible support for important causes. Women and children may be leaders in the news and education changes. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! New investments may be offered. Try them out. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

In Scorpio Mars is perhaps a silent partner, but is deeply courageous and terrifically on spot in Scorpio. Moon intuitively calls him to arms in her behalf for all those in danger or need. In Scorpio he can be sinuous, weaving and surfacing then going down for another look, returning with the truth of the matter, discovering how to navigate in treacherous situations. He can plant seeds along the way that dissolve some problems, allow other seeds to grow well in spite of adverse circumstances. With Jupiter, and he and Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, he may not say so, but he will offer hope for survival in a good way. Do your part.

Happy Full Moon and Happy New Year 2018!

First New Moon of 2018!
SIX Planets in Capricorn, Jupiter Sextile Pluto, Mars!

Tuesday Jan 16 at 6:17 PM Pacific, 26 Capricorn 54!

Capricorn Crescent Fairy Wings 2018 New Moon

The day before our Capricorn New Moon Jupiter sextiles Pluto, which could be wealth, super health, the mate of a lifetime! With SIX planets in Capricorn working hard for us – six ways to Sunday, including that Pluto, we will certainly be taking steps in those directions!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, so the link is in sync! Scorpio and Capricorn are pros. Scorpio makes the money that funds Capricorn’s goal! Capricorn uses it precisely, no time wasted, so the money goes further than expected. Good chance the project makes money before it is even finished! Scorpio makes astute relationships, whether personal or business. Capricorn places people well along the way, competently assessing their abilities, leading them to higher places they never knew they could get to. Health improves with happiness, and being in that right place at the right time can make us forget we ever had troubles. Good job!

Jupiter wants to educate, and Scorpio doesn’t spare the depth, perfecting every detail from inside to out! Jupiter sees the long term, so Scorpio opens his eyes below, above and beyond! This inner and outer vision at once opens all kinds of corridors. Old debris is carted away, energy is freed. Jupiter shouts the glory with a mighty song, perhaps not unlike the mischievous opera singer Cecilia Bartoli! Jupiter feels the huge support Scorpio offers with his strength and inner knowing. Scorpio is impassioned by the potential Jupiter sees and knows is within reach! See more

The Moon and Sun union is powerful! Moon goes through all the signs each cycle while the Sun is in that one sign. Moon brings facets of knowledge to Sun’s feet and he fills them with energy with all his Heart, lights them to brilliance! They can be gathered, brought to their full height, give their part wholly. At 26 Capricorn, one sign after the 26 Sagittarius Galactic Center, the insights from last month’s 26 Sagittarius New Moon are being worked into our daily lives.

Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet, starts the SIX planet Capricorn stellium! He sets the tone for integrity, responsibility, the ultimate practicality. He makes us aware of time and age, experience, has respect for wisdom. He is willing to work hard for core values, understands reality and necessity. Mercury had left him just days before, excited to carry the word about him, his principles, inspiring us to work as we can, the best we can, for what we believe in too.

  • Pluto is being sextiled by Jupiter as we have talked about above. Pluto in Capricorn can be pretty cool, even frozen, and perhaps he is glad to be warmed by optimistic Jupiter (Sagittarius’s planet) and the molten flow of his own sign, Scorpio’s underworld lava! Capricorn is looking at that mountaintop, but Pluto knows what lies below is the support the mountain needs. Hidden things, a mistaken premise, a weak link, can wreak havoc that may or may not be fixable. Better to prevent. Pluto was the God of the underworld. Listen to him, he’s seen it all.
  • Moon and Sun and Venus come next. Moon and Sun are only four degrees from the end of Capricorn. Sun has been in Cap 26 days now, knows what’s up and what is needed to complete the build. Moon in Capricorn brings her intuitive clarity, is Priestess of high womanhood, shepherds women and youngers to fulfill their missions. She and they take charge of what Sun can’t. Moon and Sun are making things whole – marrying male and female archetypes, allying young and old. Sun literally forges into new territory, higher dimensions, holds the Light in the darkest time of year. He mentors the way home.
  • At 26 degrees Moon and Sun are leaving Mars, Uranus and Chiron aspects behind, but carrying the knowledge forward. Mars inspires and has the courage to lead and act now! Uranus in Aries frees us from challenging old concepts, taildraggers, and teaches us how to unite disparate forces for common goals. Chiron asks for compassion, a stillness that we may see, for us to heal our addictions, to dream and believe. One day at a time. But Mars is right in with Uranus, then Chiron! 24, 24 and 25 degrees! Read on below….
  • Venus is mature in Capricorn, shifts out of Capricorn into Aquarius the next day. Moon catches up with her only 4 hours later, before she leaves. The two feminine planets merge to share caring and beauty, their special kind. There is a sweetness not always typical of Capricorn, and reality checks to keep them from falling for a wish rather than what is true. They know it is important to know that we humans are growing and rather than being perfect, it is the strength and quality of the striving that brings change and reward. They admire a working partner, gauge their choices by results.
  • The Sun doesn’t catch up with Venus until many signs later, Oct 26.

Mars has been traveling close with Jupiter since Dec 23, conjuncted Jupiter Jan 6. It has recently gained the foresight and farsightedness of Jupiter’s seeing, that Jupiter’s plans and picks stem from. And Jupiter’s optimism as well! Jupiter navigates successfully no matter what sign he is in! Though Mars is tremendously focused in Scorpio, even obsessed, there is still a broadening of attention, scanning for openings, quick ninja leaps through the eye of the needle!

Now at 24 Scorpio, Mars inconjunct Uranus at 24 Aries is a strange and amazing phenomenon. Things are off kilter and perfectly so. Mars is agile and enjoys the challenge! Mars is sure in Scorpio, but Uranus is swiftly unpredictable in Mars’s sign Aries! There is kinship, but it will not be a steady relationship. It may be long term, but random and erratic. It loosens the fibers of Mars in Scorpio and Mars surprises Uranus by magically appearing when no others could keep up! Mars may grab Uranus by the tail and hold him accountable – for a few moments, LOL!

Mars trines Chiron in Pisces. Chiron may hobble along at times, but Mars adroitly hurries him along, knowing Chiron likely has more ability than the old master lets on. Healing techniques and subtle business skills are shared. They can accomplish quite amazing feats together before others realize what has happened!

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Procyon in Canis Minor, the Puppy, is opposite our New Moon. Beware of growls, bites and slurpy kisses – maybe a hot temper, some violence! You have to know sequences to understand more of the meaning of stars. Bernadette Brady says: Procyon is the star that rises before the great Sirius, the Dog Star, the Shining One. It symbolizes rapid success but short-lived opportunities, for its bright rising light is quickly outshone by the rising of Sirius. Do business quickly, harvest your gains, move on! Opposite the New Moon may make you quite aware of this phenomena, especially if it triggers factors in your chart at 26.

Algol is at 26 Taurus trine the New Moon. Trines are good; Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus, you may have some personal insights. The head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Depending on who and when someone is talking, Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! As an earth sign, Capricorn is feminine though Saturnian, sometimes ruthless in business, could be an ardent artist leaving a valuable legacy of astonishing quantity! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. Likely the Capricorn stellium in trine, astrology’s best aspect, will mitigate the dark side. Capricorns are generally not afraid of the dark.

This New Moon is a worthy leader of 2018’s New Moons! It holds the successful Jupiter sextile Pluto energy. SIX Planets in Capricorn gets the job done!!! Algol will ramp things up, surreptitiously or very up front! Blessed be, carry on!

Full Grass Moon! Earth Grand Trine, Mutable T Square

New SuperMoon  – TRANSIT of MERCURYTaurus Stellium, 6 Planet Grand Earth Trine, Venus activating Mutable T Square!

Full Grass Moon – Day before Earth Day!
Very lucky Earth Grand Trine/Kite, Outer Planets Mutable T Square

Thursday April 21, 10:24 PM Pacific at 2 Scorpio 31

Taurus Full Moon Labyrinth Mandala Oak Trees Creatures Earth As Above, So Below

“Every tree, every plant, has a spirit. People may say that the plant has no mind. I tell them that the plant is alive & conscious. A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit in it that is conscious, that sees everything, which is the soul of the plant, its essence, what makes it alive. The channels through which the water & sap move are the veins of the spirit.” – Pablo Amaringo

The Moon and Sun stand alone this time, very early at only 2 degrees.

Earth is definitely the number one factor. This Full Moon is called the Full Grass Moon, super fertile! It is the day before Earth Day April 22! Taurus is the first Earth sign, and there is an Earth Grand Trine/Kite formation in the Full Moon chart!!

Taurus is a blessed sign ruled by Venus. Love is the basic element in their heart. They are known as founders of organizations, often non profits. They make beauty as they can everywhere they go, every day of their lives. Flowers, healthy plants and foods, facelifts, charmingly graceful clothing, toned bodies, lovely boudoirs. Taurus is the sign of Mother Earth, conservation, permaculture, the ecological enormity of climate change.

The Moon in Scorpio may be shy, often quite private, possibly inexperienced. It would take a gentle Taurus to nuzzle up and waken that dragon without getting burned or bitten. Taurus can wait until Scorpio becomes the one who can’t! Taurus is a consummate sensualist, and Scorpio loves being gradually teased to ecstasy.

In business these two have such different styles. Taurus likes a secure feed, continuous bread and butter income. It certainly does accumulate and they often have vast land holdings. Interest and earnings get plowed back in. Scorpio loves a corporation, many mergers later, the income is over the top, way exceeding what the original founders hoped for. Together there can be many divisions and options, some come, some go, flexible. Taurus wants its own money in pocket; Scorpio shares and blends. Prenups for both.

The very lucky Earth Grand Trine/Kite starts at Jupiter 13 Virgo. Jupiter is retrograde in station, has traveled to old places, back as far as it will go, to retrieve some unfinished information to complete the project. It might want to publish, but is not quite ready yet.

  • Jupiter is very close in trine with Pluto, next at 17 Capricorn. They are thinking about ways to prosper and alliances to make for excellent health and living conditions, meaningful research, accounting, and production. Trine Pluto, Jupiter expands Pluto’s thinking, creates an intense desire for increase. They are both just waiting for another lucrative option to come their way. Meanwhile, details of negotiations in progress are being ironed out. Miraculous healing potential is in the offing.
  • Pluto is followed by Mercury at 21 Taurus. Jupiter and Pluto have been looking for ways to build their estate, both physically and in Spirit, long term healing of the Soul. Mercury paid him a trine visit the 17th, the day Mars retrograded. This focused energy while Mars was in Station (appearing to stand still in the sky) held the connection so an intelligent, verbal and mindful merger could be formed, maybe papers were signed. Mercury in Taurus will carry the message Jupiter in Virgo has gleaned and is bestowing, reality checked by Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury now values that information, consummating the intent that the Word will be spread in fertile places.

Mercury has a prime part  in the Full Moon Grand Trine!

  •  The Earth Grand Trine started with Jupiter, now it finishes with Mercury at a same degree trine the North Node retrograde at 21 Virgo! The Moon’s North Node is thought by many to be a karmic factor of past lives. What a lucky connection! Knowledge from long ago is brought forward, revealed in detail. Virgo is the second of Mercury’s signs, so there is a working rapport. Virgo is the placemaker, health helper, organizer, fund manager. A lot can get done.
  • Mercury’s very next connection, making the Grand Trine even luckier, is in a Kite pattern with Chiron, the Centaur of healing wounds, teaching, marriage and business! Excellent. Mercury is importantly key because the 19th, the day the Sun came into Taurus, Mercury was, for the first time, at the degree of the TRANSIT of MERCURY coming May 9! It is now carrying the TRANSIT of MERCURY energy! See More!
  • Mercury sextile Chiron in Pisces sees Chiron’s vision, puts some words to it, helps ground it and start the founding of a magical, possibly spiritual venture. With Chiron just having been with the Moon’s South Node, things from the past, past lives, may play a part. Relationships matter in a new deeper way. Integrity is more important than status or numbers.
  • There may be a surprise harmony of purpose since Venus, Taurus’s planet with Uranus, both in Aries, are semi sextile midpoint between Mercury and Chiron! Of all times, say what you want and why you want it! Being on the same page is incredibly potent and peaceful! There may be a temporary sense of being off center – it’s just a spot you’re not used to being in yet – but you will be so glad you spoke up. If that doesn’t go as well as you hoped, maybe you are better off to move on. Perhaps you have planted a seed that will pay off handsomely later on.

Mars has been riding along square Neptune for some time. Allowing a 5 degree range, it started way back March 18! They have been quite close as Mars slowed to retrograde, then Mars retrograded at 8 Sag 54 while Neptune was at 11 degrees. There has been whispering, hinting, haunting. Neptune rules Pisces and is currently IN Pisces, the last sign. Mars rules Aries the first sign! One dreams and visions, the other takes action to make the dream come true. In Square, there have been constraints. Neptune is somewhat inaccessible at times, hard to read, too soft to really get our attention. Mars has been traveling about in Sagittarius, perhaps too busy to focus, not always in town. There are some kinks in the circuits that will at times be unresolved background noise. The exact square won’t finally close until August 25!

Outer Planets Mutable T Square! Jupiter has been in close square with Saturn in Sagittarius since our Pisces Moons. See lots more! Now it is closer yet with the exact square coming May 26 at 13 Virgo/Sag 41. Jupiter sitting at 13 is also back closely opposite Neptune. Though it doesn’t make the exact opposition, the nature of it is with us. See more And Saturn is retrograding back to square Neptune June 17! See more

Jupiter is up, Saturn can be down, Neptune shy and unfathomable. Jupiter inspires and invites, Saturn does the hard work, Neptune intuitively guides the enterprise. Jupiter wants to travel to the healer, Saturn finds the best rates, Neptune is already there calling you home. Saturn is at the point of this T Square, so he has weight, the power of experience, authority, timing. Saturn takes responsibility while Jupiter may want to run away and Neptune simply vaporizes! It’s tough herding kittens. If Saturn is too much a heavy, the others give up or it never gets off the ground at all, the energies too disparate. But if Saturn is clever, each is given a task they can’t wait to do, and not too much at once, please, then there is a pleasing result, just not as much as hoped for, or you may be happily surprised! Sometimes it is the finding ways to work together, any steps in the right direction, that are more worth it. Our hopes and expectations may be forever modified, more blended, our listening capacity opened, and in Spirit, in our Souls, we get much further in a good way.

We are so blessed to have each other in this great labyrinth of Life!

New SuperMoon – TRANSIT of MERCURY
Taurus Stellium, 6 Planet Grand Earth Trine, Venus with Mutable T Square!

Friday May 6 at 12:29 PM Pacific – 16 Taurus 41

This is a super important New Moon! In Taurus it is solid, immovable, strong. It opens the doors to new beginnings. It strengthens, stabilizes and supports us to be able to receive the titanic 7.5 hour solar infusion of the TRANSIT of MERCURY!

May 6 New Moon
xxxx8 Mother’s Day
xxxx9 TRANSIT of MERCURY!

Grand Earth Trine in Sweet Taurus! 4 Planet Stellium, cluster, in Taurus!

Venus is in one of her own signs and in a lucky trine with Jupiter retrograde in Virgo coming back to meet her! There will be blessings on our projects, writings, landscaping and veggie gardens in the days to come. The exact trine is May 10 at 12 Noon Pacific!

Moon and Sun have already trined Jupiter, the Sun on the 3rd, and the Moon just hours before, sealing the deal, at 7:06 AM Pacific. Sun has brightened the opportunities; Moon has added her nurturing to bring the good results we have hoped for. Focus on the long term good. Put your energy where it will grow well.

Moon and Sun are in a 1 degree trine with Pluto retrograding to meet them! This is a super aspect of power and wealth. It may be gentle to watch since Taurus is thoughtful first. Suspense builds. A partnership long wanted may finally become openly agreed on though some of the agreement will be private or confidential. When Taurus gives their commitment, they are loyal and will build the foundation needed for the perpetuity of the cause. Pluto in Capricorn has many potent connections that will lend expertise, fund a product or program for the good of all. It could be research, healing. Jupiter is retrograding away from the trine with Pluto, so it all won’t be as big as it could be, but further ideas are there ready to fulfill when Jupiter turns direct, forward, and that trine is made June 26!

Mercury is retrograde, going back to trine Pluto May 12. Some paperwork may be signed then, but don’t forget, Mercury is retrograde, and things may fall through in spite of the signatures. Mercury goes back to 14 Taurus, almost makes it back to trine Jupiter exactly at 13 Virgo, but is just over a degree shy. So, we think about what we could do, but those contracts are not signed. We are enlivened, see the details, how it could be, but it isn’t the time yet. Still, we carry the ideas with us, and they help shape our intentions, enhance our chances.

Mutable Signs T Square ~ Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

  • Venus and Mars are adding love and beauty, action, to the Mutable T Square through Neptune. The T is Neptune in Pisces, its own sign, opposite Jupiter in Virgo, both of them square Saturn in Sagittarius at its point. Mutable signs adapt, are flexible, offer change, move with the times.
  • Venus is first. In addition to her trine with Jupiter, first she sextiles Neptune. That is an old fashioned Soul Mate combination. Venus loves for love, beauty and money, but Neptune loves because he sees your Soul, the sufferings, your dreams. Neptune has understanding beyond words, empathy, compassion. That Love is more spiritual than material. Venus in Taurus loves her pleasure, the textures of life, being in her body, on this Earth. When Neptune makes music, whether etheric or rock and roll, Venus enjoys the dance. It’s an exquisite ballet blessed with grace, perhaps a sensuous symphony, maybe a benefit for some marvelous cause!
  • Though Mars retrograde in Sagittarius didn’t make the exact square with Neptune, there is still a feeling in the air of no languishing in the ashram! Gotta get up and take it on the road! Time to preach it to the people, put the vision on the podium, show them the pictures! Mars came close, took a peek, got Neptune excited, and is now going back to spread the good word to some interested parties.

Moon and Sun inconjunct Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us that our actions have a far reaching, sometimes long enduring impact, occasionally consequences! Saturn is more that just simple timing, it is our life’s work – Dharma, Karma if you will. Taurus holds energy by nature. Give them something worthy of keeping, fertile, that will unfold through time, growing good for our community. Be in communion with your family, neighbors, friends, that we may learn together, teach meaningfully in joyous ways suited to each special Soul. Taurus is a very personal sign. They steep in themselves to be totally self aware like the Buddha who sits. Let their peace be at our center, well grounded.

This 16 degree New Moon is immediate support to the May 9 TRANSIT OF MERCURY, Eclipse of the Sun at 19 Taurus 25! Mercury is retrograding back to make the conjunction. On average there are only 13 of these Eclipses per century, so this is an uncommon aspect. The next is Nov 11, 2019. After that, it’s 2032!

The Mutable T Square has been a long term combination. The New Moon Taurus Stellium is comparatively only a few days, but potent with Moon and Sun together, and Venus in one of her own signs! That they are in an Earthy 6 planet Grand Trine, the most favorable of astrological planet patterns, indicates both substance and that reception is in place for the potent volatile solar infusion through Mercury. Taurus represents treasures, enduring values, loyal sustainable love, stability. Venus is noted for kindness and grace, simple wisdom. Together they will keep the information received safe, focus and strengthen it in time to come. They will make it hum with beauty, irresistible, ready to be shared.

See more about the Eclipse!

Both this New Moon and the TRANSIT of MERCURY open gateways to Jupiter in Virgo square Saturn May 26, only 20 days away. Jupiter is in Station, appears to be standing still, as it turns direct, forward, just 3 hours before the TRANSIT of MERCURY! Information will be steeped for maximum potency and focused at Jupiter’s station point, then unfolded gradually as Jupiter gains momentum going forward. Some of the information will be organized, filtered by Virgo’s no nonsense ability, utilized increasingly, 10 fold, as it gets integrated with our lives and our frequencies are stepped up. Matters of health, our life processes, rights for animals, where we live, will be considered. Jupiter will pass it by Saturn for his consideration. Saturn will test it, build on it, take it with him, moderate the timing, delegate to people of appropriate ages, place it at key educational points.

Astronomically this is a New SuperMoon! The aspects make it a super New Moon!

Retrograde Eclipse across the SUN, 8:12 AM Pacific at 19 Taurus 25!
See the Astrological Chart below!

Transit of Mercury 2006

May 20 note: This is worth reviewing because June 3 Mercury is again at the TRANSIT of MERCURY degree, 19 Taurus, the third and last time, the day before our Gemini New Moon June 4!

Be there! The entire transit will be visible in the western part of Europe and Africa, as well as in the east of North America, and in South America! Western Africa has the best weather in May. It lasts 7 1/2 hours, crossing retrograde, East to West.

On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The last planetary Solar Eclipse we had was Venus Retrograde in Gemini June 5, 2012. The last Mercury eclipse was Nov 8, 2006 at 16 Scorpio. The May Mercury eclipses are about half as frequent as November transits, but are bigger because Mercury is Aphelion, farthest from the sun. They occur at Mercury’s South Node. The next TRANSIT of Mercury will be Nov 11, 2019. After that, it’s 2032!

Mercury moved into Taurus April 5, 2016, the day Venus, Taurus’s planet, went into Aries. The Moon occulted (eclipsed) Venus, Taurus’s planet, April 6 and the Sun squared Pluto. Mercury went deep into the New Moon April 7 at 18 Aries. Several deep aspects together. Mercury’s entrance into Taurus has some weight.

In Taurus, Mercury the Messenger is sitting with the Buddha, with Mother Earth. He is content in his skin, loves animals and their beautiful fur. Slowing down in Taurus, coming out of Aries, is quite a pace change, at first impatient, but soon adapting to the rest, being able to observe more of the periphery, the framing, perspective, centering, peacefulness. There is absorbing in addition to seeing. It’s a richer experience that way, though it can also make Mercury feel heavy when he is usually a skimmer and a butterfly flit about. Passing information along is more his venue rather than everyday common sense. But once there, he lends considerable intelligence to simple things, speeds up the processes, links and integrates them for further benefit! He’s a natural liaison. Seeing the Taurus values he becomes an appreciative spokesman.

Mars retrograded April 17, is way slow, taking his time going back from 8 Sagittarius to 23 Scorpio. Action takes a decided turn, the point man suddenly changes, possibly no longer interested. A project is left undone or up for serious revision. Or, Mars steeps himself in the depths of his intention to find the purity of his purpose, the internal strength and resources needed to get past a threshold. The teaching schedule and topics are shifted, the destination is uncertain. Philosophies are being challenged. Mars turns Direct, forward, in Scorpio June 29. May 9, the Transit of Mercury, occurs early in the retrograde when Mars is at 5 Sagittarius, pondering the options, confident of the possibilities. At the time of the Transit of Mercury, he is making no aspects to any other planets, so at that time he stands alone, unfettered, free and clear.

The TRANSIT Eclipse happens during the concurrent Mercury and Mars Retrograde! See Mars Retrograde! See Mercury Retrograde!

Mercury direct in Taurus was first over the Transit point April 19, the day the Sun entered Taurus and 3 days before Earth Day. Taurus is the sign of Earth. Clean up your antennae! Make sure the link to your channel is ready. Write out your thoughts, what you would like to receive, your intentions, what you will do in preparation. If you meditate, seek access to a sacred communion symbol, a centered Peace. Find a still place that will trigger your ability to receive as much as possible. Let go of fears. You will be graced perfectly as you can be. You are perfect just the way you are.

However, if by nature you are an exuberant fiery spirited person, quickly clear your channels, ask for guidance to be given your part. I’m all for jumping up and meeting it halfway, arms open wide, laughing all the way! Whichever you are, if your birthday is May 9, we are especially counting on you!

  • Mercury retrogrades April 28 at 23 Taurus, makes the May 9 Transit at 19 Taurus, turns Direct/forward May 22 at 14 Taurus. Mercury is well placed in Taurus for this event. Taurus, an Atlas, is a super stable strong sign. The Sun bathing Mercury is in total Light, being infused with a mega message, requires a sturdy vessel, one that can hold and sustain that Light, keep it safe. Taurus, the sculptor, the ceramic bowl maker, looks for the natural fit. Steady in the Light is a perfect phrase for this event.Jupiter goes Direct, turns forward, just 3 hours before the conjunction of Mercury and Sun! Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, the sign opposite Mercury’s maiden sign Gemini. While Mercury is information gathering and communication techniques, Sagittarius gives it meaning, direction and purpose. Sagittarius travels and carries the best with it place to place. It teaches wherever it lands. Considered a friendly optimistic lucky sign of fame and good fortune, we are so blessed to have it’s planet moving forward and carrying the messages of the TRANSIT of MERCURY far and wide in a positive frame of reference! Jupiter in Virgo, Mercury’s other sign, will strive to keep the insights unblemished, pure and accurate, send them out where they will be well tended, spread further.
  • June 3 Mercury moves forward across the Transit position the third and last time. If you were tuned in, your chart aligned with the Transit, there has been a lot to think about. Taurus has to do with your Body, our most precious possessions, Earth herself. Perhaps now you have more words to express your comprehension of what happened. Taurus being a fixed sign, an earth anchor, a sign of fertility, will hold these thoughts in safekeeping for a long time to come. They will be cherished, guarded and grown. Save the seeds and keep on sharing.

Mercury and Sun are at Mercury’s South Node (not the Moon’s South Node). It’s sometimes thought that South Nodes are where a bad was in past lives. Mercury in Taurus could have been a selfish thinker, all about possession, a pickpocket. But some also think that what we did, we did so bad, we did it good, and have a super talent to use when now used in a good way. Instead, they could be a grant writer, a museum curator, a clever organic farmer who talks to the plants and animals. So for Mercury, in this case, perhaps the specialty is holding consciousness, the link to, the messages of Sun, Sol, Soul. Because Taurus takes possession, things will be slowed down to a pace people can stand. New ideas will be less frightening, we can get used to them. They will be given with patience and kindness. We will be graced with gentle gifts as we grow, soon ready to handle more. Mercury is keen about estimating current capacity, and makes sweeps of the territory to see what’s changing and what’s up next. Truly a useful talent. The May 9 super infusion, will be a wellspring, giving us a synthesis of valuable inspiration for our world today.

Not only is Mercury at his South Node, but the Mercury eclipse Sun is trine the Moon’s North Node at 19 Virgo. Things from Mercury’s past of many life times will do a rubber band snap into present tense, just like in a time machine, now in the cloak of current times! The organization of life and good business are offered updates that transform us from mundane procedures to extraordinary services and production. Virgo irresistible! Time to let go the old, soup up the new! The Virgo North Node steps up, sees that quality nutrients, regular care are provided, that all is well maintained in top form.

What about that 19 degrees?! 19 Taurus, the degree of the Eclipse, is opposite 19 Scorpio. In old Horary astrology, 19 Scorpio was called the ‘dread degree’ of the entire zodiac! Many are born on 19 Scorpio and do fine. Clearly there are not terrible world traumatizing events that day every year. Yet, there are times, and for some people, it indicates severe challenge, possibly life long. One 19 Scorpio Moon woman never knew her mother, was in 13 foster homes and known for her volatile emotions. Events may be defined quite differently. Is it carnage or should we call it regeneration? Shall we hire the wrecking crew for things that completed their usefulness, clear the path for repurposing? Taurus is a sign of fertility and growth, and Scorpio is known for healing and regeneration! Both are known for strength – one for the power of life, the other for the power of rebirth. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. They can strongly clash neither giving an inch, yet often, with help of a third party, make peace and work powerfully together for common cause.

Children born on this day during the Eclipse will have magical Solar linkage called Cazimi. Their birthdays will hold a meaningful part of our lives. In old horary astrology, when Mercury conjuncts the Sun exactly like this, it was considered unfortunate, burned out, combust. But I am with David Coleman‘s camp. For your perspective, he explains it this way:

  • Cazimi, [within 0° 17′ of the Sun] then, leads to the most enchanted state wherein the essential meaning of the planet becomes truly inseparable from our spirit. A cazimi Venus, for example, could easily be a nymphomaniac or ‘sex addict’, for example. It could also be a person with near supernatural charm, grace or insight into the world of feelings. Under the sunbeams a planet [8° to 17° of the Sun] is warmed and vitalised and somewhat or completely invisible, meaning it is commanding and infused with our inner light but somehow ‘on the fringes’, lacking in conventional status. It becomes ethereal, alluring, unusual and dreamy. Combust planets [8° of the Sun] are unorthodox and often willfully defy external direction because they are confident in their own inner unique grasp of the planets essential meaning. They are either aloof from or disinterested in the material agenda of the planet concerned but will still display its power radiantly and forcefully but somewhat enigmatically and individually.
  • Short answer: when a planet becomes non-visible because of the Sun’s light it becomes less physical and more astral in focus.

Since Cazimi is within all three of these definitions, I say ALL apply! Look at your own chart to see if you are in any of these categories and if you think they apply.

Expect these Cazimi children to have extraordinary things to say, an exceptionally clever mind in some way, some form of remarkable dexterity, an unusual voice, a way of speaking about a special talent that holds our attention even when it’s not our subject! In certain topics they will be intelligent ahead of their age expectancy, and will surpass common thinking.

In this chart of the eclipse, the Moon is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! As you receive info, share it, disseminate, placing it where it can grow well and be shared on and on, putting the full breath of life into it! In astrology parlance, the Moon is Void of Course, making no aspects with other planets while it is still in Gemini. It is mature in its sign, unhindered, undistracted, free to receive, free to channel what it perceives! Perfect.

Two major outer planet aspects are part of the chart, both squares!

  • Jupiter is squaring Saturn, exact May 26. Jupiter in Virgo is always sniffing like a skeptic, sorting out what goes where, seeing if it really has use. Many things are interesting, but they have their own time and place along the road of life. Saturn in Sagittarius is not so interested in saving everything, may simply want space, yet sometimes instinctively puts it in the ‘Later’ category until its time has come. Together they may reframe certain information so others can get a glimpse of the potential and get on board with them. Jupiter loosens Saturn’s grip on old opinions with new data offered.  Jupiter is hopeful. Saturn is glad for more tools, the Builder at work.
  • Saturn is squaring Neptune, exact June 17. Saturn doesn’t know whether to consult the Mystic or throw him out! Neptune has intuited subtle guiding ideas, knows a lot about people that you would never guess. But there are those unpredictable artist or addicted moments as well ~ often ‘addicted’ to loved ones. Sigh. Insisting on expert specific counseling, programs can be costly, but the results may be well worth it. Saturn sometimes needs to learn when demands and stomping its feet will just never work. Some situations are not in our control. Some are broken beyond repair, or simply spent, done, over. Giving up and reasonable surrender are time saving talents. However, the new Light coming through Mercury may offer alternative possibilities. It will be wise to filter and integrate with current options as well. And sometimes when we all, one time or another, hit our personal bottom, we listen better. Humility and surrender are key. The viewpoint is different, and sometimes enlightening, from our knees. Getting to work may be the better choice versus dwelling in past sorrows, imagined tragedies. Onward.

Venus, also in Taurus, one of her own signs, has just sextiled that Neptune both still closely at 11 degrees! She has sweetened Neptune’s appearance and seen the values of his compassionate ways. Being pretty, strong, stubborn, adored and selfish at times, is not enough. It’s more than money or status. The Soul has to be happy. And working forever for things we want, needs restful Neptune breakaways to reassess where we have come to be. Big messages from the Sun God are cool, but they might need a little talking up. Neptune can help Venus shape the words with love, make new insights treasured.

Venus in this sextile with Neptune makes the Grand Earth Trine (blue triangle) a Kite formation, easing some of the stress aspects. Venus trines Jupiter, hallelujah, and Jupiter trines Pluto! That’s a money maker if I ever saw one! The messages of the Transit of Mercury, Eclipse of the Sun, will be blessed and grounded. Messages will come in at high spiritual levels as well as at the earthly how tos! The TRANSIT lasts 7.5 hours! Why not take the day off and truly Be There?!

Though the mythological Mercury is a man, Mercury is considered an asexual neutral planet, servant and messenger of the Gods, as such, simply a logical Vulcan-like channel. It is at times more interested in the function of gathering and transmitting information than the information itself. Each of us will put the spin of our own chart filter on the information we receive, yet try to keep your transmission of what you receive as neutral as possible. Go for the clean abiding principles rather than judgements of it. Since Mercury is of Gemini the Twins, think of it as our masculine Solar twin being seamlessly in Union with our Earthly feminine mind. When we are at one, there are no misunderstandings, no omits. We are complete, the merger Divine.

VISIBILITY! Find out if an astronomy group is setting up near you. Get tickets to the observatory! Find or get your viewing glasses now and put them in a place where you can easily find them! Clean up your old telescope. Check out the viewing times for your area. Find your favorite live stream channel!

The whole transit will be visible from most of Western Europe, S. America and Eastern N. America. Partial visibility everywhere else except Australia and far eastern Asia.

This is a profound exchange of information between us and the Heart of Light! Each person is linked to this chart in their own way, or not at all, though that isn’t likely since the many factors involved are across so many degrees. Each of us has a part in some way. Thank you for you and your part.

Steady in the Light Forever!

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!

Here is a little treat for you subscribers! Mercury has been direct since July 1, time to enjoy yourself now that things have turned around! Take yourself on a morning play date! Mama Moon in Aquarius, sweet Venus in Gemini, and handsome Mars in Libra!

Grand Air Trine July 2014, Moon, Venus, Mars!

See the blue triangle that points toward the top of the chart? That’s the one. The chart is for the Moon’s trine with Mars at 10:37 AM Pacific. It is in strong effect as early as 6:37 AM. Moon trines Venus at 12:23 PM. Have a peppery hot Cajun breakfast and a sweet and fruity Polynesian lunch!

The only caution is Sun is already close, about to square Mars on Friday the 18th. Be careful about sex. Watch where you are stepping, drive a little slower, carefully. Back away from tempers and impetuous actions, weapons, pick your battles. Mind your diet, avoid sunburns and heat exhaustion.

That said, have fun chatting on Monday, get the information you need. Set up some special social time or work with public officials, legal affairs. Make amends, be open to forgiveness, for yourself and others. Select some extraordinary designs, colors, adornments, get your hair cut. Make temporary financial decisions for short term gain. Flirt but wait a week to see if its on. Dance! Get good things done; afterwards, be prepared to hold steady through Friday.

Now, of course, always remember, each of our charts are affected differently. If Air signs agree with you, go for it, but also remember the air sign oppositions with fire signs – Gemini opposite Sagittarius, Libra opposite Aries, Aquarius opposite Leo! This Grand Air Trine is at the 24/25th degree, so planets from 22 to 26 will be activated in your charts.

Good luck!

Isla Vista Shooting Seven Dead

My dear astrological friends, today is sad for many of us in the Santa Barbara/Isla Vista CA area.

A young man, likely Elliot Rodger, son of Peter Rodger, who was an assistant director on “The Hunger Games” film series, was angry last night, in fact, angry for a long time per his previously posted YouTube video. He shot 7 people, his intention revenge, to kill women because women have rejected him. In the process he injured 13 others including a bike rider who has brain injuries and whose life is in the balance as I write. Please hold him, and all involved in your loving thoughts, and pray for the Soul of the shooter.

All astrology is not cheerful. We learn from charts of such difficult events, in hopes of prevention, sometimes avoidance of dangerous times. We hope to help those who suffer, guide the teachers and healers, parents and loved ones as possible.

1) Charts of such events usually have several factors that indicate potential violence. 2) And those charts also connect with the perpetrator’s and victim’s charts. In this case we don’t have Elliot’s birth time yet, so we don’t know all of how his personal chart was triggered to act at this time, but we now do have part of it. See his birth date chart below. 3) Even ‘good’ astrological charts don’t always connect well with some people’s charts. Currently we have a favorable Grand Water Trine in progress. In fact, today Jupiter trines Saturn! 4) Also, ironically, a favorable chart can be used to accomplish a ‘bad’ thing.

Here is the chart at the moment of the first call received at the Sheriff’s Dispatch Center, 9:27 PM (from Sheriff’s statement video).

Isla Vista Shooting 7 Dead

List of difficult factors to consider:

Sagittarius Ascendant – Can feel wronged, want vengeance
Three planets in Aries – Anger, action. Moon in Aries – Anger at women. Uranus in Aries – Unstable, loneliness, fear what you do won’t be acceptable. Venus in Aries – angry at being alone.
Uranus square Pluto – Mass murder, a ‘crazy’ hate, exacerbated extremes. Been in aspect since 2010, finishes March 2015. As it has moved along the degrees, different people and organizations have been triggered along the way.
Mars, anger, Aries’ planet, has been in station, in a standstill square (challenge without change), with Pluto, hate.
Mars has been festering in Libra six months, anger over perceived inequality, not being accepted in relationships, anger at what should be your right.
TSquare – Moon in Aries is opposite this hot hair-trigger Mars. Mars/Aries rules firearms. Moon is also square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is the planet of Death, and in Capricorn means and knows how to do serious damage.
Venus in Aries is square Black Moon Lilith. Venus in Aries wants a fight, and square Lilith, against those evil women.
Venus is at the Moon’s South Node in Aries. Raw unhealed wounds from the past can cause great pain.
Sun newly in Gemini square Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Imagination gone awry with an overload of thoughts out of control. Fear of personal failure and it never being over. Suicide.

This is quite a list of factors. Add it all together, and how it likely affected Elliot’s chart, and you see what happened. Yes, there are some positive factors, but not enough, too little, way too late. And as I said earlier, sometimes ‘good’ factors simply allow the ‘success’ of the intent, even when it is bad. And there was also heroism. Bullets flying, two employees of the 7-11 convenience store went out and pulled a woman who was shot in the leg into their store along with giving safety to 36 other people!

Elliot, quite troubled at 22, may have had bad parents; he may have had good parents. His chart is still his own chart. As we know, some Souls can rise above horrible circumstances, survive to contribute, teach, police, serve. Others are somehow just innately broken, beyond fixable.

If you have any of the factors I listed in your own chart, please do not be thinking of yourself as a mass murderer. You may recognize some of the interpretation that you, instead, have learned how to use in a good way. For example, you express your frustrations appropriately and learn how to change the conditions in your life, sometimes with the help of other experienced people. You know how to self soothe and get support.

I ask for your compassion, loving thoughts for this Soul known as Elliot. We haven’t walked in his shoes, Great Spirit. I pray that those lost may rest in peace. I pray for healing for all the injured, the witnesses, their families and friends. I pray for the officers and all helping professionals. This affects so many of us, ones who weren’t even there and may never know any of these people. Talk about it; give each other hugs. If you can help in any way, please do.

I knew it was serious when I heard all the sirens last night.

Evening May 24  We now have Elliot Rodger’s chart. Per his Manifesto, He was born the morning of July 24, 1991 in Lambeth, South London. Exact birth time not given.

Elliot Rodger May 23, 2014 Isla Vista CA Mass Murderer, Shooter

This chart is done for 6 AM, the mid of morning – between midnight and noon. I chose a zero degrees Aries ascendant due to not having the exact birth time. The Moon can be anywhere from 0 to 5 degrees Capricorn 56 minutes. His Ascendant can be anywhere from 5 Taurus 56 to 11 Libra 41. We don’t know what houses the planets are really in. He’s NOT Cancer; he calculates solidly as a Leo Sun.

It is now known that he was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and has been in the care of several therapists.

About Elliot Rodger

Sun, Jupiter, Mercury in Leo – Generous, warm hearted,very interested in romance, self learning, with a dramatic tendency, Jupiter exaggeration concern for rights and justice, can thrive in education.

Moon is in Capricorn along with Uranus and Neptune. In traditional astrology this would be considered genius/artist, an infalible intuitive, or insanity. The Moon is emotional, irrational; Uranus is unstable, friendless; Neptune is undefinable, misunderstood. In Capricorn it can imagine the worst, be depressed, never fit into ordinary daily life, in sorrow for parental approval. Sometimes Moon in Capricorn, especially with Uranus, interprets their Mother/Women to be cold, and often they are themselves.

Uranus in Capricorn is in Mutual Reception with Elliot’s Saturn in Aquarius – in each other’s signs. This doubles the potency of the power of these principles. Uranus breaks with traditional authority, or is abandoned by it. Saturn wants to corral what is likely already lost, in this case, likely his Father. Sometimes this is brilliance in science, computers, electronics.

Sun opposite Saturn in Aquarius. This too indicates a distance, separation, or perceived as such, from his Father. At minimum, they would have differing opinions and Elliot would have wished his Father really did discipline him, or the Father’s way of dealing might have been to send the boy away. Or so it seemed to Elliot, and was likely true. This would have been abandonment and a great cause of grief, a primal invisible assault on his manhood, and for a Leo man’s man that would be awful. On the other hand, when the Father tried to reach out to him, he may have shrunk away, or have been so unreachable as for the Father to give up knowing it was impossible….

Mars with Venus in Virgo. Virgo isn’t called the Virgin for nothing. The Leo part of Elliot was romantic, and saw that as a part of life to seek. At the same time, Virgo can be so self critical that they always set it up to be rejected before they ever have to be tested. Mars may come on too strong when approaching women, the admiring, affectionate kind Venus not having a chance. The more the ‘failure’ happens, the cruder and more irritable the Mars gets, then women get afraid and veer off.

Asperger’s is often associated with inappropriate behavior. I would put that more with the Moon/Uranus/Saturn combination. Uranus is considered odd, or eccentric, even asocial. In combination with the frustrated Virgo combination, Elliot could have gone from slick too smooth Leo, to scary strange guy.

In combination with the Isla Vista shooting chart

Saturn in the sky now is right where Elliot’s Pluto is and square E’s Jupiter. Saturn conjunct Pluto is one of the hardest aspects there is, for anybody. It squeezes you where it hurts when there is unfinished business you didn’t want to look at. It makes you aware of your deepest failures, the poison in your Soul. It happens once every 29 years. Saturn square Jupiter takes all the fun out of things and makes you sure you’ve been done wrong. What hope you’ve had is hard to come by. Even God has failed you, so it must be your fault. Horrible hard hitting loneliness and depression, despair. Major difficult pair of aspects.

Saturn was accompanied by the current Grand Water Trine Jupiter and Chiron, trining his Pluto. This is one of those ‘good’ aspects gone awry, making it too easy to do a bad thing, and succeeding at it. If there is going to be weeping, the water signs can do it. Jupiter makes it a big event. Chiron wounds and eventually teaches as we heal. Saturn with Pluto is finality, so we mourn our irreparable losses.

Pluto is right at Elliot’s Uranus and Neptune. Pluto is famous for going to extremes and taking 248 years to make its circuit, this would be the only time this combination would ever occur in his lifetime. Uranus can be perversions, strange attitudes. It can be 100% alone or fame/infamy. Pluto is Death, and Neptune is the Soul or Soulless. In Capricorn there can be a stone coldness, rigidity without compassion or much insight.

With Uranus square his Neptune, he didn’t know what to think any more. In some way, his Spirit was interrupted, broken, scattered. He lost his better focus that kept him with us. He wanted to be free of all this burdensome unmitigated entanglement with no connections as he would have liked them to be.

There are other aspects, and there are things we don’t know since we don’t have his birth time, but to me, these are the toppers. As to why that night? The Moon in Aries squared his Moon and Uranus in Capricorn. That’s a classic all hell breaks loose combination and is common in divorces. The events are often sudden and shocking. The entire attack took place in 10 minutes.

Some would say these are troubles of a young Soul. Society works to help, tries to assimilate with some success. It might take many lifetimes. And in some ways, his troubles are our troubles, both in ourselves and in Society. Please see the Guardian’s …Misogyny Kills, about Elliot’s part in this social issue.

Kudos to Davide Mastracci for writing Men Must Learn From the California Mass Murder. See his suggestions at Huff Post.

In spite of the pain and difficulty, we learn from this tragedy.
