New Moon – Venus Frosting!   

Sunday September 27, at 7:50 PM Pacific – 4 Aries 40

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon September 27 2015

Jupiter in Virgo’s, Saturn in Sagittarius’ 1st Lunar Eclipse!

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon DiagramThis image gives you an idea of the relative sizes involved in a Lunar Eclipse! Earth takes the Solar energy directly. Moon glows reddish. By definition, we have Sun and Moon opposite each other, but in no way are they equal! Sun is clearly dominant, yet, Earth and Moon are together, a system of their own, far enough from the Sun not to be pulled into the Sun. In their case, distance is the equalizer.

Most Full Moon’s shine brightly in our sky, lighting the land with their beauty. Moon is apart from Sun in the opposite sign, that sign illuminated as equally as the Moon can ever make it be! Separated, they each stand on their own merit. In the line up of an Eclipse, Moon is temporarily shaded by Earth from Sun’s rays. The Lunar energy is still there, but Sun’s energy is translated by Earth, reflected, bent by our atmosphere. We as humans, on the dark side of Earth, become transmitters, sending to Moon, and receiving from Moon without Sun’s direct distraction. Though Sun is bigger and brighter, the Moon takes precedence.

So I ask you to put your energy primarily with the Moon in Aries! Aries goes well with Saturn‘s now fellow fire sign Sagittarius. Moon has just left a trine with Saturn. Though the Moon & Saturn are of opposite signs, Cancer and Capricorn, a trine brings that energy of Mother/Father into harmony rather than be separate. Aries and Sag initiate and teach, enjoy sports, are thrilled to walk, race, a new and profound Path together. If the Ascension happens to YOU, it’s a good time to do it!

Moon in Aries gets adjusted by coach Jupiter in Virgo. Shortly, the Moon will be 150 degrees askew of Jupiter. If Aries doesn’t mind a quick pit stop, Virgo is well organized, Jupiter to the point, it’s done and good to go. Virgo has tips, Jupiter confidently cheers you on! Moon in Aries is a leader. Women get a head start. Children are quick to follow! Just keep a watch on them! Jupiter is inspired by Moon’s fearless quality, and writes them into the story as heroines! Perhaps they will travel together for a short time.

I like this traditional saying, ‘All that fall shall rise again.’ As with Persephone and Demeter, or from a fallen dry seed comes a green sprout bursting with new life! At this darkening time of year, it is good to make alliances, good to share. The Sun is moving forward to conjunct Mercury while Mercury retrogrades back to meet Sun! Kiss! Message exchanged and remembered. The exact conjunction will be made Sep 30 at 7:38 AM Pacific. In horary astrology the Sun this close with Mercury is called Combust. Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen. It can be read as burned out, weak, no mind of its own. Or it can be free of materialistic concerns, feel extraordinary power, defy orthodox direction due to its own natural knowing.

The third planet is Neptune! Sun is moving up to inconjunct Neptune Oct 1, while Mercury is retrograding back to inconjunct Neptune Sep 29. Jupiter was opposition Neptune Sep 16. The Lunar Eclipse keeps Neptune in play. The Sun and Mercury inconjunct peek in to see what Neptune’s insights are. They look for the magic, the imagined, the Vision! Neptune is not always so verbal, so the Sun and Mercury may be enchanted for awhile, sure that something will come. They have never quite seem something like this before. But if there is not enough ripple, they move on. Libra is a Cardinal sign, always initiating new relationships. Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is often more interested in other worldly dimensions, less so in the everyday social carryings on, less in unimportant chatter. They just may not be able to find a way to communicate with such a different way of being.

Mars is still considering its actions in view of its recent 10 day square with Saturn culminating Friday the 25th. You may have been humbled and be recovering from some road rash, as well as having rested a bit and feeling less tired and frustrated. Mars may be young and feisty, but old Saturn often still calls the shots. Mars was trying to offer a new time saving method though, so if you made Saturn take a few moments, you may have made an impression and be called back for another interview. But don’t let the sly elder do a Kokopelli trick and steal your ideas! Keep your attitude clean and respectful. No contempt or criticism. Rather, ask how can we do this?

The North Node in Libra is between Mars and Saturn, semisextile Mars, sextile Saturn. Time is of the essence. Saturn stabilizes, Mars offers action, Initiation. North Node seeks a balance of respect for experience and authority, and breaking new ground. North Node gets a little scared sometimes, Libra is unfamiliar energy, since the South Node, the Past, in Aries, ruled by Mars is the independent warrior. It’s not used to sharing power with others. But Mars acts on instinct, rarely second guessing itself, and the semisextile with Mars reawakens fierce memories of capable action! Since the South Node was their forte, Libra North dares to laugh, and apologizes gleefully as Mars sometimes bullies its way through. Someone had to do it! Finally! North Node sees the long term plan Saturn in Sagittarius has in mind, and feels more secure to take a chance. If conservative Saturn does it, anyone can, and probably should! Saturn may be gruff at times, but North Node Libra is learning manners and shows Saturn the benefits of a more polished performance.

Mercury is leaving a square too! It first squared Pluto in Capricorn Sep 9. The second square, the 24th, just 4 days before the Eclipse, is during Mercury’s retrograde. That reminder, second encounter, will have a certain potency if it affects factors in your chart. Mercury is still in close range. You think Saturn is sly, try Pluto in Capricorn! However, if there are any flaws, they hit the mark precisely! It can save a lot of time in the long run though changes could be costly. So if you are feeling a tad unsettled and don’t know quite why, nevermind the why and take a good look at the matter itself. No denial, no sweeping under the carpet. Better to take care of it now rather than have more consequences down the road when the third and last aspect is made after Mercury goes direct. That aspect isn’t until Oct 22, so it gives you time, but not a lot. The sooner fixed, the better the quality of your progress without that nagging feeling that something is riding in the background. See what could be stopping you, remove the thief of time. Rethink, rebalance, add some beauty to the mix! Seek new alliances of integrity.

So these two important preceding aspects to our Eclipse have broken through barriers. Mars wants to make offerings to Saturn and Saturn is wondering if he can accommodate Mars’ request. Mercury has been dancing around the Serpent Pluto in Capricorn, taking certain chances. Nipping at Pluto’s heals, there is a quickening of Pluto’s attention since few dare such encounters! Mercury is especially smart in Libra, too clever to be brushed off. Mercury just tries another angle until it finds the door. Mercury in Libra has lots of allies that are likely to know some of Pluto’s allies, so an introduction may be offered. Pluto would be wise to listen and court Mercury as an asset. Mercury in Libra may be ultra considerate, but they are also brilliant negotiators, and fast at it. Not a time to sign papers though.

For those of you steeped in the ASCENSION, and those of you who have never heard of it, please see Steve Beckow’s post at The Golden Age of Gaia. He references several people including Matt Kahn, Patricia Diane Cota-Robles and SaLuSa. Sep 26, 27 and 28 are all considered important dates, especially the 28th. Beckow discusses where the energy is coming from – gamma ray photon light from the Galactic Core (The Pleroma), with this intensity only once every 3,600 years! Here is Trish LeSage’s take on 5D Consciousness. There are 3 Waves of Ascension that are said to occur between now and mid summer 2016. Beckow discusses what if you don’t make the cut. And some of us won’t. We all have our part to play, before, during, and after.

Saturn, now in Sagittarius, will conjunct the Galactic Core/Center, at about 27 degrees, closely continuously March, April and May 2017 when Saturn retrogrades. It will form exact aspects twice during that time. It makes the third conjunction Nov 24, 2017. That will certainly be a telling time!

May all your journeys be blessed and you be blessed exactly as you are.

Libra New Moon – Venus Frosting! 
Moonday October 12, at 5:06 PM Pacific – 19 Libra 20

Libra New Moon Lunar Buddha Danielle Winter
By inspiring artist Danielle Winter, Bonn, Germany. Gratefully used by permission.

New Moons have two sides to them ~ one is unseen in the quiet in the dark time. The other is getting super charged with Sun’s energy, as Moon travels with the Sun. In Libra, Moon balances the key portals, modulates the frequency, exchanges on bright wavelengths, intricately and specifically connects all the right places! There is a satisfied hum of the Creator generator, and a warm radiant mystical glow that relaxes the fibers of Being to complete reception. Frisson and Fusion at once.

This New Moon, is delivering Libra’s message, seeking poise, the blending of both/all our abilities. It is the representative of fine art, ballet, exquisite symphony. It is the envoy of negotiation, collaboration, subtle creation, synthesis, separation, initiation. It acts alone in inspirational maximum integrity. It gives hand written invitations to ones worthy of spiritual partnership.

Uranus opposite in Aries has electrified the combination! Sun was exactly opposite the night before, 8:49 PM Pacific. Moon was opposite less than 2 hours before at 3:20 PM Pacific! Batteries charged, shaken and stirred, loosened for more of Sun’s infusion at 5:06 PM! Aries seeks independence, and Uranus freedom, but they are group initiation as well! Libra is social and seeks candidates for the cause. Libra parlays peace so more can participate. The potential swells like a tide, sweeping unique individuals together into contribution like never before!

Intelligent Mercury is now Direct, going forward, in Libra. He is with the North Node, letting go of old Aries fire and fight, looking for equality and sharing the best each has to offer, working together. Mercury is in serious sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius, thinking of the long term, wanting to make commitments, restructure the old patterns and rules. Mercury longs to learn more, signs up for specialty schools. Alliances can be formed with people in charge, mentors, elders. Experience makes a difference. Time takes precedence and things get done as attention is focused where it counts. Old debts, Karma, can be honored and stamped paid. Dharma, the work of the Soul, is recognized and hammered into fine metal.

Mercury is semisextile Libra’s ruler Venus, Venus now in Virgo. There is work to be done, people will be brought to do it. Details are in a beautiful array, art in production. Budgeting assures the project. Dietary health is key. Tell the story, write the blog. Use tasteful illustrations in marketing and advertising.

Venus and Mars will each join lucky Jupiter in Virgo! Mars is first Oct 17, Venus will join on Oct 25. Mars and Jupiter are confident and frisky together, might take a little trip to get new project materials or go off to a seminar on writing or caretaking, enjoy a health spa. A little productive time away feels good. A little caution is in order. Jupiter may need to be reminded of the budget, not go quite as far as the map shows road, be careful physically, less time in the Sun. Venus will still be back at the shop, but getting their calls, quickly calculates what is needed for the adjustments. When it’s her turn, she and Jupiter can be extraordinarily lucky together! They can make an irresistible super presentation! Time for a celebration party bringing collaborators and customers together for more sharing and excitedly brainstorming their next ventures! Expenses could be high, but likely well worth it. Plan it!

Venus won’t catch up with Mars until Nov 2! They will bring the gifts of their mergers with Jupiter to each other! They will be steadily organizing, finessing every situation and item within their ability to love up. What Venus wants, Mars wishes he could give! Where Venus makes beauty, Mars takes action. Mars in Virgo is not generally so sure of himself, but Venus loves him, gives him the handsome blessing and Mars is delighted! He gets the tickets and takes her to the Ball!

The New Moon is a lively and lovely springboard!

Virgo Full Harvest SuperMoon Tree Heart
Falling for You! By artist Jerry McElroy. Of Native American descent, he has close ties with the land and Native peoples.

The Virgo New and Full Moons and the Libra New Moon, are all part of the Jupiter YOD and super trine with Uranus Sep 25! Please see all about that!

NEW MOON, Mars Conjunct Saturn!
August 25 at 7:13 AM Pacific ~ 2 VI 19

See  FULL Harvest SuperMoon

The 2 degree New Moon makes no major 3 degree or less aspects, though it isn’t far from opposition Neptune, divinely placed in its own sign Pisces. MagicLand is in full view, just gotta make the crossing!

What is exciting, are the SIX planets at 16 and 17 degrees – at 16: Chiron, Uranus and Venus, and at 17: Mars, Saturn and Mercury!

The aspect of the Jupiter sequence most closely held by the New Moon, is exact just the day before! You can’t visually see it, but it is still in effect during our New Moon. It is Jupiter exact at the opposite midpoint of Pluto and Neptune! Jupiter has made this unusual series of 8 aspects, with Neptune and Pluto within a strict 5 degree sextile, every 12 years since Mar 1951 at 18 Pisces. Then in May 1963 at 11 Aries, Oct ’63 at 13 Aries, Feb ’64 at 15 Aries. May ’76 at 12 Taurus, May ’89 at 12 Gemini. Now after a period of time, skipping Cancer, Neptune and Pluto are again within 5 degrees of each other, we have the next to last Jupiter midpoint to them Aug 24 at 8 Leo! Aug 2027 is the last one, at 5 Virgo. It has covered a period of 76 years. Some of us shall have lived through the entire set! See Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Dreams Come True! and Jupiter inconjunct Pluto!

The New Moon is immediately preceded by, that very morning, 3 favorable aspects!

  • Mercury in Virgo sextile Mars in Scorpio. Talking and walking, there is lightning fast agreement on what to do. Some questions are answered by watching rather than asking.
  • Venus trine Uranus. Venus is within one degree of where Jupiter will be when Jupiter forms the super trine with Uranus Sep 25! It sweetens the spot for Jupiter! Venus in Leo generously adds grace, makes it bright and attractive! Take a heart touching gift. Let your appreciation shine and bless the coming arena. Share with your most potent friends, and do it quickly! They’re not just standing around! Art for Change. Love for freedom and r/evolution, nothing less! Extraordinary, exotic, electric, extreme creator, intelligence on fire! Leave the lazy fan and the chocolates behind, get on top!
  • And Mercury sextile Saturn. At the same time it could be a great deal on last year’s model, maybe a car, especially electronics! Escrow may close. Practical information from experts and seniors. May be a well earned award. Productive. Keep records, write it down now. Find the key!
Our Virgo new beginning is followed by some serious aspects! Though they are spread along the week, they are all in effect at the New Moon. Saturn is aspected twice; Venus makes two aspects.
  • 12:30 PM Pacific the same day: Mars conjunct Saturn in Scorpio at 17 degrees. The last times Mars conjuncted Saturn in Scorpio were 1-1-1954 and 2-14-84. It is on a 28-30 year cycle, and won’t again until 9-15-2042, then 10-14-2072! However, it does conjunct Saturn, in whatever sign Saturn is in, every two years. If you have planets 15 to 19 degrees, you may be strongly activated. Check with your astrologer to see where the conjunction will be occurring in your chart, which house, realm of life responds.This dance started within 5 degrees Aug 16th. When it’s up and running, it is super productive, outstanding award winning accomplishments, Dharmic action! When not, it’s so blocked you can’t see daylight. Argh. It may be a required forced march, relentless and exhausting, not enough time to get it all done. This is the peak, so hang in. Be as honorable as you can. What you do, or don’t, possibly Karmic action, may have longer term consequences than you expected, for better or worse. Some may feel you have usurped your bounds, others may criticize for your getting no further than you did, you were irresponsible. Remember, it’s you in your body, not theirs. Do your best, measure against yourself, not their expectations. Timing may be a tad critical or downright criminal! Pick your battles. Wait for positive potent moments, put your energy where it will do the most good. Delays are natural, will be part of the process. Sometimes they save us from acting too fast. Poise is what we hope for, that we will have long term success. Well worth the effort. Turn the key of Life!
  • 11:22 AM Tuesday: Venus square Saturn. You may not feel like working. It may seem you aren’t appreciated no matter how hard you do work, it’s just not worth it. Scorpio isn’t usually very vocal with praise, often absorbed in their own work. Maybe you don’t like that work. Leo likes up and about; Saturn in Scorpio is down dog dedicated. Aha! Let’s break through, plant some seeds, ask for what you now see you would like! It may seem like they don’t hear you, yet they may surprise you. They WERE listening! Post some images around you that remind you of what you are seeking. Hang out with others excited about what you do, and will pay the same or more for doing it with them! Raise your rates soon. If you have been too flighty, or me, me, me, then get down yourself!
  • 8:46 AM Wed: Venus square Mars. Again, make sure what you want and what you are doing are in sync. Temporarily you may feel awkward. Getting what you want takes extra effort. Getting to the gym is out of the question. Leo may be unsure what untalkative Scorpio wants. Sometimes Scorpios don’t know either! With no feedback, or when Venus in Leo doesn’t feel wanted or attractive, it’s hard to feel proud and get going. Leo can help with getting some Light into the crevices. Venus sweetly assures, praises, gives Scorpio time to think, comes back to see if there has been a melting, revelation seepage. Sometimes its a matter of deduction from that point. The Gate is opened. Treat it kindly.
  • 7:33 AM Friday: Sun opposite Neptune. Sun in Virgo can do with a little distance from Virgo’s opposite sign Pisces, it’s planet Neptune. Partly it’s the need to feel secure that they won’t get lost themselves. Pisces/Neptune are famous for their foggy soggy ways. Virgo is a clean machine, generally try to be well organized. That is their intuitive way. Being able to observe from afar gives Virgos the best vantage point to get perspective. They can better choose exactly which part of that dream of Pisces’ that they are willing to work for. Virgo offers the best personal health available, essential to thinking clearly, working effectively. Pisces gives them the hope and inspiration that makes them know why those picky details are perfect to do! Pisces forgives when things aren’t perfect, or unfinished, when the Universe takes a big turn! Virgo offers any services it can; Neptune/Pisces keeps it Magical!
Virgo comes at the time of year when our work pays off with harvests. Virgo, that part of our chart, takes care of our daily living, whether it be health or daily maintenance. Nutrition, paperwork, bookkeeping, landscaping, nursing, are all essential to the smooth flow of our lives. Tending our pets, landlord/tenant relationships, housekeeping, washing dishes and laundry have to happen. New ways to store our foods for winter, household tips, better eating for our health, getting help with our work or documents, are all kinds of ways life can flow more smoothly. Doing work we love lets us enjoy life and live longer! Renew your contract with yourself! Implement your better choices. Whenever you think of Virgo, think Harvest!

Sep 8 at 6:38 PM Pacific ~ 16 Pisces 19

Last of the three-in-a-row SuperMoons! Bigger and brighter! Appears red through ‘any sultry haze.’

Importantly, our Harvest Moon is just before the September 11 to 20 Jupiter YOD! In that period, Jupiter is within 3 degrees of both Pluto and Chiron. It is exactly opposite their midpoint Sep 14! Inconjuncts/YODS are marvelous aspects that allow a release of pressure. There is opportunity to slip aside to explore and assess possibilities that may have seemed impossible before, or even forbidden!

Full Moons have a way of bursting at the seams! There is Light at Night! You could be seen or in shadow. There’s maximum reach into magical dimensions. This one takes that Virgo Sun right out of her chemise! Pisces can have the most extraordinary experiences without ever leaving their meditation pillow! An extraordinary concert works too!

Missy Moon has just been with Chiron, so she is full of profound insights about healing and relationships. Venus is now in Virgo too. The New Moon was opposite Neptune, now Venus is. She could use some of that super feminine mystic quality. Compassion and Beauty, work of the Spirit. Not a bad combination! Don’t be surprised to be set up with a blind date that works! If you are keeping house, put on your favorite maid or slave outfit! Or pretend you are at school in your schoolgirl/boy uniform. Be gentle with the ruler, you hear?

Saturn in Scorpio is as obsessed as always, is keeping timely tabs on expenses, funding, deadlines, a combination of perfection versus utility, getting paid on time. Moon and Chiron don’t mind, they are happily in trine to old Father Time. Mama and Master are in agreement over necessities, part monetary, part magic. Long awaited monies may come from surprising sources after all! They may celebrate each step of the way, a merry crew, a grand finale expected, then all escape together after the project is done!

Uranus in Aries is going a bit crazy with all that work ethic going on. Jupiter in Leo, coming into its super trine with Uranus, agrees, they need to let off steam, be silly and laugh! They are happy someone else is working. They might pitch in, especially if it was their idea in the first place! Let them be the collaborating consultants and they will be clever beyond words! Fame is lovely.

Sep 5, Jupiter inconjuncted Pluto. Secrets may still be being tracked, coming to light. Some are still being manufactured as we speak. A Full Moon reaches into very dark places, and Pisces into the finest tinyness, where things were thought to be invisible. If a secret is a necessity, guard it very carefulIy. If you need to save a life, don’t hesitate, speak up! Jupiter can sometimes be unkind, without even realizing what they did, not knowing the consequences the Truth would have. Too much, too soon, too, too, too. Pluto, and inconjuncts, can sometimes sidestep the felony. Pluto and Pisces can mask, retreat, protect. They can also heal a deep injury, a contamination of Spirit. There are times it is best to relinquish a frozen hold, let go the stone of sorrow, despair of worry, nettles of hate. Jupiter may rudely laugh, but after a stunned moment, you may find yourself gladly laughing right along with them! What was I thinking?!? You are probably stronger than you realize!

The harvest of this Moon prepares us for the 5 day later Sep 14 Jupiter exact opposite Midpoint of Pluto and Chiron! It tunes us in to paying attention to fleeting thoughts, subcurrent themes, refines perception. Venus and Mercury are in each other’s signs, called mutual reception, each pointing the same direction! Super intelligent chess player Mercury in Libra square Pluto tries to balance Pluto’s dark in/attentions. There really is no escape from its seeing, level below level. It names the powerful achievements made that might have gone by unnoticed behind their shields. Though challenging, possibly dangerous, Mercury secures a living breathing link to Pluto’s vast storehouse of ideas. Liaisons are made with beauty seekers bridging the way. Pure, deeper motives, beyond the veils, below the fear, are drawn from the Well. We transform, release the primal pungent fragrance of Life!

Libra New and Full Moon - Penumbral Eclipse 2013

Friday Oct 4,  5:34 PM Pacific, New Moon at 11 Libra 56

Equidistant patterns are considered potent!  This New Moon has several all in a stack!  I have removed other aspects so you can see it clearly.  The base is the New Moon opposite Uranus in T Square with Pluto (red lines) at the point, the apex!  Since Pluto is midpoint the Saturn trine Chiron (blue line), the green sextiles are formed to its sides.  The purple lines are the equidistant inconjuncts, Saturn inconjunct Uranus, and our New Moon inconjunct Chiron!  To add a little intensity, there is a three planet stellium (group) in Scorpio plus the North Node!

DEGREES:  The New Moon is just past the 9 and 10 degree planets, carrying the Light forward at 11 degrees.  The Sun moves a degree a day, so if you allow a 5 degree range, it will be in the mix starting Sep 26!  The Moon travels a degree every 2 hours, so it adds its action starting about 3 AM on the 4th (Pacific).  In the course of those degrees it will activate Mercury, the Moon’s North Node, Pluto, Chiron, Saturn and Uranus in that order.  if you have planets or chart factors from 7 to 12 degrees, they will be activated.

The Libra Sun/Moon opposite Uranus in Aries makes for an uneasy mix of wanting a relationship or to heck with all relationships!  Libra is usually nice about it, but Uranus and Aries want independence, and take off without warning, no discussion, freedom and independence happily side by side.  They don’t know where they are going, they are simply in motion to see what they can see!  Libra may plead and cajole, but likely to no avail.  You just can’t own a free Spirit.

The Moon/Sun in Libra have just passed the Square to Pluto in Capricorn.  Being cardinal signs of getting things started, and Pluto the ruler of the next sign Scorpio, putting heads together and merging finances to get a job done can be worth the partnership.  If there is a slippage of funds, however, there may be enemies and lawsuits.  Funds are super important to this chart since there are 3 planets, Mercury, Saturn and Venus, and the Moon’s Node in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign!  Saturn and the North Node are considered karmic factors.  The past, history of performance, and future expectation work well if skills are brought forward to rebuild.  Dharma – your Soul’s work, facing one’s fears, making a real commitment, eases the way.  Venus is just about to leave Scorpio, so it’s a good time to show your love while you still have the chance – call back people who need to be recognized or thanked.  Make the donation.  Check on your taxes.  Tell your Honey how much you love them.  Go to dinner with people who celebrate you.  What ends well starts the new cycle well.  See more about Saturn’s Oct 2 & 4 aspects!

The New Moon is just past an inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces.  It helps to know sensitive, vulnerable spots in relationships.  Walk by gently.  Appreciate the incredible awareness, the spontaneous creativity that can surge forward.  Know where the wounds are; seek a new balance.  Restore justice to what was diminished or left invisibly along the wayside.  Make a channel for teaching to come through.  A slight tweak can make all the difference.

Libra New Moon 2013 Astrology Chart

Oct 18, 4:38 PM Pacific, FULL Moon, Penumbral Eclipse at 25 Aries 45

In the US, the eclipse will already be in progress when we have Moonrise….  It will be easily visible to the naked eye as a dusky shading in the southern half of the Moon.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth moves between the Sun and Moon but the three celestial bodies do not form a perfectly straight line. The Moon then travels through the outer part of the Earth’s shadow (penumbra). This means that all of the Moon’s visible surface still receives some direct sunlight – but the Earth obscures parts of the Sun, as seen from the Moon.

Our first fall eclipse, but last Lunar Eclipse of the year, stands alone by degrees, making no close connections with other planets.  It has a wide connection with Jupiter, but the Sun passed that connection six days ago, and the Moon almost 11 hours previously.  At 25+ degrees, it is finishing up Libra, spreading its wings for further flight.

Since there are shadows on both the Sun and Moon, we have opportunity to be aware of subtle forms within forms.  Relationship tonalities that we had inklings of are now confirmed as something remarkable, that we can deal with on more equal terms.  Being present and accounted for may have surprising results.  Watch how the shadows move to see the form behind them!  Watch to the side rather than in the direct line of sight.  Mother Moon in Aries will have feminine shadows, perhaps revealing needs to start fresh, having done deeds of leadership that always did point the direction she’s taking now.  Father Sun in Libra may have some unrealized connections that need to come forth, alliances from the realm of magic, or that need to be swept off the communal table, released back to the ethers from whence they came!  Together, intuitive, sleekly dressed Moon may offer up an initiation, taking steps into the ceremony, hand on elegant Father Sun’s hand, stepping proudly into the Light.  This may be the time to invite men to the women’s circle, a time of balance, recognition of the gifts of both – the finest each can offer.

The other strong aspect, at 2 degrees, is the Virgo Mars opposite Pisces Neptune (in its own sign!).  The Moon is in Mars’ sign Aries, so the opposition is linked to the Eclipse in Spirit.  Mars has this terrific healthy action plan – the right foods, sequences of patterns.  Financially it insists on organizing the coin, for trainings, buys of qualified items at best times, sensible medical care.  It negotiates helpful services – maintenance, bookkeeping, animal care.  Neptune is usually pliable, makes sensitive intuitive observations, believes in your cause.  Neptune invites you to the yoga class, meditation, a vacation!  It sets up the entertainment at the spa – music, films.  It is magical with night lighting!  If you haven’t been to sea, surfing, fishing or a cruise may be enjoyable.  Trust Mars in Virgo to find the best, cheapest tickets!  You can afford to do something new with special people – business partners or your marriage Sweetie!

2013 New and Full Harvest Moons!

Virgo New Moon Sep 5, 2013 at 4:36 AM Pacific, 13 Degrees Virgo   

Other than Pluto midpoint Saturn and Chiron until Oct 2, this New Moon has no major transit patterns.  But, sweet Venus and jumping Jupiter!

The Moon and Sun are sextile Jupiter in Cancer!  That’s far and away good luck!  Virgo is noted for serious considerations of all things technical, and every tiny piece must be in precision.  They are food nuts – gotta be pure, excellent quality.  They know which herbs restore you to prime body chemistry.  And it has to be a deal!  A good price is half the healing!

Jupiter is naturally robust, cheerful and long lived.  Granted, in Cancer, it could have exaggerated feelings, but it’s headed in the right direction!  What Virgo worries about, Jupiter in Cancer says, aw heck, forget the diet for the moment, Sweetie, let’s have a scone and some latte!  Live a little, let’s get on the road, we’ll stop at a diner, we’ll get dinner and desert!  Apple or cherry pie?  À la mode?  Cancer wants to feed you up, and for the life of you, you say yes!  It helps to just relax once in awhile.

Jupiter is quite intuitive in Cancer, and sees the big picture.  It sees why the Virgo is doing the puzzle, what fits where, where that takes you long term.  Excellent planning opportunity.  Put the cards on the table, move them around, wait a bit, then do it again.  Wonderful results.  Cancer wants a long term education and Jupiter is University bound!  Virgo wants hands on experience to go with that, always improving, and is a superlative mentor with the right student.  Specialty schools are perfect!

Virgo is not as religiously inclined, but does respect integrity, purity, proper ethics, to help one another.  Jupiter is a natural teacher, and in Cancer may home school the kids.  Virgo can provide data, facts and figures, to support the learning process.  Virgo is good with budgeting which soothes Cancer’s financial insecurities.  Virgo keeps the reigns on Jupiter’s inclination that all will be well no matter how much I spend.

Mercury in Virgo Semi-Sextile Venus in Libra!  Though a really minor aspect, I’ve seen semi-sextiles work remarkably in corporate charts.  Both planets are in the 2nd of one of their two signs!  Communication are just blessed, in this instance money is made through words and good deeds.  Virgo is your craft, your expertise, how you keep your daily existence flowing.  Virgo and Libra are both intricate – Virgo with pets, plants and things, Libra with people, the delicacy of connections.  Venus softens the rough edges and demands of Virgo as long as lazy selfishness doesn’t creep in.  Then Virgo gets really cranky, because they like to work and it you don’t keep up, they feel contempt and put upon.  At which point, time for a new partner; your paces and places are different.  When it works well, Venus loves what Virgo works hard for, Venus putting on lovely finishing touches!  Take it to the bank!

Mars in Leo is happily frisky trining Uranus in Aries, Mars’ sign, but, square Saturn in Scorpio, feels like old fuddy duddy Saturn is arms crossed standing right in the middle of the friggin’ Path.  But try to listen.  You may not agree, but there may be good advice you can apply in another situation.  In truth, you really may be going too fast and have missed something?  There’s always a reason.  Saturn is the Guardian, so get over it about the conservative stuff, rules and regs, see how you can use it to your advantage in a good way.  If it can’t be fixed, move on with kind respect.  Sometimes the only way is your way.

Virgo Harvest Full Moon, Sep 19, 2013 at 
26 Pisces 41 – 4:13 AM Pacific! 

At 26 degrees, our Harvest Moon is a stand alone, not tied to any other planets.  But it is importantly the day before the Saturn sextile Pluto the next day at 10:18 PM Pacific, and only three days before Fall Equinox!

The Sun strengthens Virgo, a sometimes frail, fragile, susceptible sign.  A strong Virgo knows their facts, has an excellently adaptable routine, through efficiency gets a prodigious amount done in spite of not being so physically strong.  Heavy sports are often overtaxing; walking is quite enjoyable.  They are dedicated workers with an array of skills, from maid to bookkeeper, to nurse!  They render worthy services.

The Moon in Pisces, across the sky from the Sun, is gentle and nurturing, a tsunami for a cause, willing to sacrifice.  It is so intuitive, at times there is psychic injury when they know what you think about them, really, and the pain of others is felt as if it is their own.  They know only too well, we are all one.  With those insights, more precise work can be done for healing and change.  They are more willing to party and go to the spa on the islands than Virgo, and are consummate performers – music, images, film, theatre their loves.  They can take you to another realm.

Allowing 5 degrees, Sep 14, Venus joins the Pluto midpoint Saturn/Chiron pattern! 

  • Sep 16, Saturn conjuncts the Moon’s North node.
  • Sep 18 Venus conjuncts the Node and Saturn, and sextiles Pluto!
  • Last, Sep 20, it trines Chiron, completing the set.

On the Harvest Full Moon, Saturn is at the same degree as the Moon’s North Node, a double karmic encounter.  Saturn wants to ‘make it so,’ and the North Node is a little shy, wanting, but a little scared too.  Scorpio is a formidable sign, and if you screw up, there be consequences.  Could be now, could lay in wait for later.  Venus has just gone over them, the 18th, the day before the Full Moon, being the big day!  Venus is doing a BlessingWay, making the choices look more enticing, sweetening the pot!  How can you resist afterall?  Saturn loves to work and Venus loves to love!  You might get paid for something you love to do for the first time!  What’s not to like?!  As a result of your hard work and courage, the trine with Chiron may bring a ‘marriage’ of sorts, a partnership, a love healing.

These sensible yet fanciful combinations, the Full Moon and the Pluto midpoint, will help us deeply see the needs of our times and each other, specifically to sense the deepest realms of the possibilities of Saturn sextile Pluto.  Saturn, the Builder, our Karmic Mission and Master, wants commitment to the realistic necessities of our times.  In Scorpio it profoundly looks at human rights, particularly financial and sexual – that can be gender issues, gay and lesbian marriage and finances, rape, child and animal abuse.  It looks at matters of fuels, global warming, waters.  The Harvest Moon has insights, offers options, as it is wide across the sky, encompassing the breadth of our work of Service and Spirit.

Pluto, God of the Underworld, knows the dark possibilities, faces what could be.  In Capricorn, realistically it knows that rebuilding, Pluto resurrects, remodeling, is a smart ticket choice.  It looks for tiny openings, slithers into powerful alliances with like minds, shares power and funding, to take the scales off our eyes!  Like the Serpents raised along the Physician’s Staff, we are uplifted to see even greater possibilities.  Stand still a few moments this Moon, and see what your part will be.

Fall Equinox, Sep 22, tips toward the longer nights.  We store the harvest, get out our warmer clothes.  The season of holidays is upon us, winter alliances are formed.  Virgo offers its services, Pisces its dreams, visions to plan by.

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

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

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

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

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

Are you still breathing hard from our Leo month?  Take a good deep breath and take it easy, catch up, get steady.  Our Virgo time is going to be completely different!    

It starts on a financial power pattern, Sun trine Pluto, exact on 8.25, the day after the Virgo/Pisces Full Moon.  Keep a poker face, a low profile but very attentive, come from the inside out, with your Virgo ducks in a row, in other words, accountant approved, and your venture will improve or pay off!   Obsession or dedication and loyalty?  Step away if you need to.  Close-to-the-bone intensity may work for you this time.  Both in earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn, are wanting to do good work – long lasting, meaningful, excellent.    

Virgo, Putting it Together for 2012

Fitness.  How do things fit?  Puzzle point in, or puzzle point out?  Where in your day will you get that done?  Is your mind up to the load?  Does your weight/wait make the scale?  How many people will it take to get that job done?  Can you order enough by the time you need it?  Is it handcrafted, high quality, or will a production item work well?  Will the sweet peas be ready for Christmas table vase?  Can you get that all on that computer page?  So many ways fitness matters!  And nobody does it better than the best, Virgo!        

Being taken care of, knowing your health keeper, dog walker, accountant, will be there for you, matters.  Less stress, better quality of life, live longer, love longer.        

Guarding the seeds, purity, keeping the lineage pure, gets potent results, time after time.  Reducing flack makes for a smoother flow, less time taken, better production for effort spent.  Sleep well, with pride in good service.        

Virgo is the mini builder – a builder of gardens, a wood worker specialist, seamstress, exercise/nutrition program consultant, bookkeeping graph maker, contacts data enterer.  They don’t build the house, like Capricorn does; more, they build what goes in the house.  Daily practical intelligence.   

Things that come in sixes?!  Virgo is the 6th sign, snowflakes have 6 sided symmetry, beehive honeycomb – maximum space with the minimum of wax, the scutes of a turtle’s carapace, quartz crystals, carbon, Metatron cube (video), the flower of life.  The sum of the angles of a hexagon is 720 degrees, with each internal angle being 120 degrees, to astrologers, a trine!  A 3 dimensional figure that has 6 square sides is the cube, hexahedron!  Like dice, let’s roll! 

Whatever the angle, Virgo measures it well for a good fit!  True fitness to 2012!
