Virgos ~ Smart, Hardworking, Dedicated!

Virgo 4 Planets Robert B Parker Author Office

4 Planets in Virgo, Sun, Mercury, Neptune & Jupiter, Robert B Parker was a 10-page-a-day hardworking mystery novelist, 65 novels, died at his desk. He made his dog Pearl famous as one of his ‘characters.’ Married 53 years to Joan, read more about their unusual marriage.

Smart, hardworking, dedicated and Magical! As writers Virgos make music and magic of all kinds, a sublime symphony of life! They take us all over the world in our minds. Among the pages we meet people we would have never met, learn about things we didn’t even know existed. Creation was never more wonderful! Our imagination is stirred beyond casual limits. We develop a broader instinct and stronger expectations! As with many crafts, Authors, bloggers, ad makers, carefully hone their talents to a fine art! As I sat down to write this, I was given two books about the White Lions of South Africa! I’m ready for the adventure…the next time you see me, I won’t be exactly the same as when you saw me before.

Virgos are adored for their helpfulness and commonsense. Maybe one of the things they do is write a how-to that gets you there and back, saves so much time! Could be on nursing, weaving, pets, growing veggies, with lots of images and a video so you can really see how it’s done by a pro. They do have intricate mind crevices, that work through layer after layer, and leave bread crumb links as they go so others can follow! They are experiential. They learn by doing. They can feel the texture and know if the connections are smooth.

Health is a complex matter. Virgo are devoted to health and wellbeing. They counsel your attitude, question your motives. There is sometimes a long ago mystery in your life that needs resolving before progress can be made in real time. Virgos research important details about quality of food, actual nutrition, natural herbal cures, factors that chemically cancel each other out or block success. They consider many viewpoints to get to a comprehensive holistic solution. That’s work. They add in an exercise regime that makes you so happy you actually do it! And they arrange groups or friends to do it with, so your life is humming, well integrated socially. You feel fully alive and ready for life! They are super caregivers.

Daily life is compelling for your Virgo. Every moment they want the best, a well organized and effortless flow. Cleaning up, giving away unused stuff is natural. They likely have a polished presentation that is well worth your time. They are always upgrading with the latest information. Many of the good things they do we take for granted – landscaping, house cleaning, at the library, accounting, technical assistance. When things don’t work, your Virgo can readily fix them and save the day! They are succinct at explaining the matter, the cause, the best gear for the job, where to get it, how to do better, prevention of future troubles. They follow up and recommend when to check back. They appreciate any extra training offered, learn it well. Don’t hesitate to send them to the best schools. Don’t be surprised if they become the instructor!

Workaholic? Don’t do it. Do what you love. If you do what you love, you want to be able to do it with verve! You keep your own health better so you can! If you do work out of false obligation, you get more tired more quickly. Your decisions aren’t up to par. You get dull and dry spirited. Definitely bored, maybe chronically depressed. You float rather than engage. You might get downright grumpy. Time to stand back and get back on center. Let someone else who would love that work do it. They will do better than you ever would or could because it is in their Spirit to do it. You be happy somewhere else!

If a Virgo loves you, you know you deserve it and they really do love you. They can be picky. If they don’t find anyone to the quality of their standards, they will live alone. Not necessarily lonely, because there is always so much to do. But if you are interested, you may need to find a way to get their attention without annoying them. They can even be a bit intimidating because they are so knowledgeable and to them, whatever they are doing is important! It may take a few times to get through. A note might work to start…’I know you are quite busy. When will you have a few minutes to talk? I need to ask you a question.’ At that time, get right to the point. Would you like to go for coffee, tea? Take them up on the window they offer, even if it is brief. They will appreciate your respect of their time. If things go well, they will make more time for you.

Virgos are not famous for their passionate love life, yet it is the sign of the Virgin. Ahem. Fresh as a daisy might have been said about them. Keep it clean, pay attention to your Virgo’s intimate requests. Take them away from work, turn off the phones, hire a well qualified assistant to take care of  the pets, water the plants. Late morning to mid afternoon is good timing. Let them get plenty of rest and do your most special things before they get tired. Feed them what they want. Overnights and mini vacations might be a perfect start or a way of life together. If they start worrying about things at home or their job, it’s time to honor that and get back.

Remind these good dear Souls that they are good! They are susceptible to criticism and are their own worst critics. That’s part of why they are so good at their work. And, ironically their ability at criticism is also one of their best talents as well. They can be excellent editors, book critics, write amazingly insightful letters to the editor, scan the production line to make needed updates. They can be excellent appraisers, and make dead on assessments. It often just takes a glance. They see an array of classic factors, and sure enough, it is as they suspected. They can save you a lot of time and money.

Virgos are often at the sides of professionals like lawyers, organizing, researching. Models almost always have Virgo in their charts. That is the pure clean virginal sweet look they can have. It becomes innocent to buy the most sexy offering at the fashion show! Teachers, Leos, often have Virgo in their charts. They back up what they say with impressive stats and details, show their students how to do it for themselves. Virgos are pros at how-to demonstrations. Stars and CEOs often have Virgo personal assistants. Stars and CEOS have a lot on their plates and need the best care because of the intensity of their work. It is taxing. They need help right down to having someone be sure you get a good meal and make sure you get to your appointments. Sometimes the assistant is brighter than the employer…but the assistant is smart to pick an employer with something extra special about them! When you interview a Virgo, you are being interviewed as well!

You Virgos are invaluable. We just couldn’t do it without you.

Virgo 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy 9.10.18 Young Moon Crescent

VERY Young Moon (barely visible crescent) Sep 10/11! 

For some sky watchers, it’s great sport to try to catch a young moon that may – or may not – fleetingly show itself as a pale, skinny crescent in the western evening twilight. The chances of catching the young moon after sunset on September 10, 2018, vary greatly around the globe. South America is especially favored. It’s usually quite difficult to see any moon that’s less than one day (24 hours) old, and nearly impossible to spot any moon that’s less than 3/4th of a day (18 hours) old. Of course, it’s to your advantage to have binoculars handy and an unobstructed horizon in the direction of sunset, and a very clear sky, for seeking the young moon. Good luck! (Thank you Bruce McClure at EarthSky)

Virgo 2018 Timeline! 

2018 Virgo! Get out your calculators! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you some great results! (SEE your astrologer for your personal timing!)

27 Mars forward out of Retrograde!

September
3 Labor Day
9 New Moon
10 Mars Aquarius
11 Sun sextile Jupiter, trine Pluto
12 JUPITER’s last SEXTILE PLUTO!!!
25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back into Pisces

October 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Virgo’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala was next. The next outer planet sign change will be Chiron. Now in Aries, Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. See the Timetable please. That is complete now, and Mars directs Aug 27, finishes the cycle Oct 8! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! Literally months of retrograde in 2018!

With the multiple sign changes and months of retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!By September 2019, FIVE of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune, is a peerless appraiser, if behind us, is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget the sleeping, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Virgo’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2018 – August 2019!

Virgo Health Strong Stride Couple Nordic Walking

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto has been in trine with Virgo since 2008, gradually making its way along the degrees, now 2/3rds through, finishing Jan 2024. Something special may have started back then, taking years to comprehend fully. Virgo is thankful for the scrutiny of Pluto, another perfectionist, and is glad for Capricorn’s get-it-done encouragement. Yes there may be some gnashing of teeth when pet details must be left behind, or some quality sacrificed. They may sneak in unpaid at night to put on the final finishing details. It’s the principle of the matter, and their name is on it. You loved that project, but, sigh, it’s time to move on. There are even more glorious ones on the way and you will handle them well. Ultimately there will be a reasonable blend between your expertise and the timeline Pluto calls for. Yes, there is some pressure to perform, but you find you are better for it, and can do it. You too want the world to be a better place sooner than later.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Virgo are opposite and it is so apparent. Neptune sleeps and dreams, makes music, knows without knowing why or how, has addictions and sometimes illogical misty visions. Virgo is up and at it, exercise, shower, health food smoothie starts the day, clean machine! They are technically good at music, but not crazy at concerts. If anything, they would be the performer at the concert! Virgos are steady workers, sleep in their own bed. Neptune may blur their facts, drives Virgo crazy, but just the same gets them thinking and out of their rut. Neptune helps them understand why life is so different for the other person, so softens Virgo’s critique. The world becomes more than just the facts, sometimes even another dimension when Pisces’s visions prove true! Other times hard work and the facts really help the dream come true!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is automatic. In fiery Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

No matter what sign Uranus is in, Virgo finds themselves blinking rapidly! When Uranus is in Aries, Virgo in the ER grabs the patient from the emergency personnel and starts the stabilization process. Virgo tallies everyone’s hours and makes sure they get paid, taking care of these people who don’t have time and can be quite tired after fighting the fires of the land day and night. She may be tired herself. Important to get rest and take care of yourself as well. New ideas are coming in at light speed and Virgos are the perfect people to adjust, make the shifts. It may be annoying and unsettling when your routine is changed, but Virgos always want to do a good job, so they take it in hand as quickly as possible. Be sure to thank these Virgos for keeping things together.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Earth signs Taurus and Virgo have simple and common sense. Though a little crazy with Uranus being in Taurus’s sign, the unexpected happening right and left, it can still be comforting to nervous Virgo. Virgo is a famed worrier, meeting one expectation after another. That can be exhausting. So the odd shocker is when Taurus says slow down, things will work out in the right time. Virgo can see they know of what they speak, so with a deep breath, an abiding patience and perseverance can come over them in a good way. They get it done on God’s time instead of other bleating beggars, and people come to see it’s just right after all! Trust. There will be a lot of support from Uranus’s friends, and working together smoothly, the job gets done sooner than planned and it looks good too!

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries. It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of PIsces/Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Virgo is the village healer with the medicine basket of herbs from way back. She knows her stuff. Chiron looks into how deep the wound is, back in the psyche as well as the body. He looks to see if it is chronic and needs a longer unraveling spell. Virgo will stay bedside as long as it takes. She’s clever and offers little things to do that intrigue the patient beyond the smaller world they have been living in. Sometimes Chiron helps her know how this has affected the patient’s relationships and business. Virgo calms with her herbs while Chiron introduces some new ideas.

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Virgo watches, takes the best ideas forward, integrates them into our daily living! Virgo’s pace is much more careful; she insists on learning the details for replication. Aries won’t stay long, but it was so worth the encounter! Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Virgo tends the seeds and carries on in Chiron’s behalf. Steady on.

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through August 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can be a staunch advisor, mentor to apprentice Virgo. Saturn can tune up your timing, reputation, finances, how you build your relationships. It can arrange steady funding, a scholarship, or a job that suits your fine Virgo talents. Your work may be more demanding, and you may be honored by being asked to take charge of the project or the company. Your family may be expanding, your responsibilities along with that. Elders or children may need more of your time and care. A well qualified caregiver may arrive and become part of your family. It takes time to master your talents and hone them, but awards may come for the beautiful craftsmanship you have achieved. Document and register your work. Saturn helps you be timely, see what the priorities are, apply your attention to the right details that make the difference. It’s time for you to make a do-it-yourself video or speak to people that can use your help. Long term relationships, both personal and in business may be formed and marriages find more ways to work well.

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential while you do it! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Virgo and Scorpio have a lot in common. There are matters about sexuality, financial privacy, both are healers. Scorpio is the #1 sign of psycho therapists working at the deep levels. They help you sort out the underpinnings of your motives, the old, old wounds you didn’t know you had yet influence you to this day. Virgo keeps you in good health so Scorpio can do his work. Jupiter always has another plot to go somewhere, plus adventurous spontaneous options. He’s confident all will go well. Virgo might need a break, but it’s hard to get them going. The trip may be too much for Virgo, so listen to their objections well and don’t neglect them, or the objections, or it may be a one off. Virgos love to improve their knowledge, but Jupiter Scorpio intensity may be over the top for them. Take it easy and let them take things in at their own pace or give them time off. It’s a mixed combination.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Oh, Gawd! It’s a trip of a lifetime and Virgo doesn’t know whether to go or stay! Is there enough money, what if things don’t get done the right way, what will I eat?! Start planning and saving NOW! This may not be the time to be so frugal and virtuous! But a business trip on a budget might be just the ticket! Jupiter has big ideas; Virgo has several stockpiles of ideas that probably add up to Jupiter’s en total! It will either be a challenge to integrate, or they will ping off each other. Jupiter may give the bits and pieces Virgo carries a greater meaning! Virgo may be disappointed that Jupiter may be leaving so soon and might not be back. When he landed, he inspired everyone with his broad knowledge and well intended projects, confidence and optimism, but now Virgo could feel Jupiter is irresponsible. Nevertheless, she has been touched. She may engage in more courses, take some trips of her own in her own way. Her thinking may have more poise as she finds her ideas have more importance than she thought. She had underestimated herself! Get away from the computer and up on your feet, LOL!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Capricorn - Switzerland's Lara Gut Skiing

Switzerland’s Lara Gut skis during the women’s alpine skiing Super G competition at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center February 15, 2014. REUTERS/Dominic Ebenbichler

Saturn’s sign change is profoundly preceded by Sunday December 17’s New Moon, new beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific, at 26 Sagittarius 31, the Galactic Center! See more!
Three days after Saturn enters Capricorn, Dec 22 Mercury’s Sagittarius RETROGRADE ends! Mercury turns forward, Direct 5:51 PM Pacific. So Saturn’s entry into Capricorn this time is meant to reconsider many options, stay flexible. See more!

Fittingly, it’s just two days before Winter Solstice, Sun into Capricorn! Saturn readies itself for its own special time of year by jumping into its own sign, a double Capricorn effect! Goats love that jumping thing and they often have very steady footing, daring to go where no one even wants to go, even ice climbing! While some bears are napping in the dark, others are out on the slopes racing at top speed, invigorated, cold air rushing by, down to the bottom, then ready to go back to the top and do it again! Ice skating is an inspiring skill! If you think Capricorn is a stodgy old sign, think again! Winter has its own kind of excitement!

After the frolic is over, it is sweet time having a hearty meal with friends, sitting by the fire, sharing grog and stories of journeys and of having overcome amazing challenges. One by one, people go off to their rooms, maybe you are left with reminiscing, going over what you will do differently next time. Images stream by. A stretch and it’s time to rest for another brilliant crisp day. As much as Saturn is a hard worker, and play can be hard work, Saturn makes you know it’s good to take time for yourself. We need those between times.

On the ground, Saturn in Capricorn are expert at building sustainable homes that will last forever, be well lived in for the right price! Remarkable features might be beautiful stained glass windows, skylights, strong timbers, special insulation. Landscaping may include reclaimed fencing, skillful terracing and artful stonework installations. Restoration and renovation are natural for them. Utilities are low and sustainably rendered.

Between nature’s laws and the rules for safe construction, Saturn and Capricorn have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. They are good at law enforcement, often take on a parental role, position of CEO, the boss. Chores may be important and no driving a car before your time or going out with ones older than you! Saturn might find us setting more clear boundaries for ourselves. We may become more clear how much time things take. Saturn with money planets or locations may require a strict budget. The other side of the coin is finances thrive, payback for long term hard work well done!

Saturn in Capricorn will likely bring more responsibilities to many who thought they couldn’t handle anymore! They may find themselves doing more than they ever expected, maybe even being asked to be the boss! Some will be pleased to find themselves doing quite well. Do negotiate a good salary, additional salary or a percent of the take. Others may find they need to back off and lighten the load. Chronic ailments sometimes stem from being too tired, tired all the time. Your body is not able to recover. As you get older, take that nap!

Knees may become important. Bending and proper surrender is a life skill. Overtaxing them has consequences. Bones and joints can only take so much stress. Don’t take yourself to the breaking point. Skin can suffer. Keep your pantry stocked with good quality food for road closed situations. Keep your body warm so you can get good rest.

In childhood, young Capricorns often have health challenges, but get super strong with age! They may be quite serious, but become cleverly funny, have a subtle wit, are truly funny comedians! Capricorn rules age. They are down to earth with a real smile when it comes. They deal with things as they happen and are often reliable to their friends even when they are down themselves. Saturn may bring some health cures, better living conditions and benefits for elders.

Saturn will reassesses relationships. Cappies take their relationships seriously. When they make a commitment their preference is to loyally keep it. Sometimes they stay too long. The other person may ‘need’ them. It has become a habit to suffer. They think it’s their fault. I’m no quitter. If I work hard enough and be a good person things will change. I’m too old to do this. Ok. Some of that may be true, but it doesn’t mean it will necessarily make it better. Take good care of yourself and talk with good solution oriented friends, advisors or counselors. If none of that is happening for you, wonderful! Keep letting your partner know how much you love them and are grateful they are in your life! They are lucky to have you!

SATURN RETURNS Saturn will be in Capricorn from Dec 19, 2017 and Dec 16, 2020. At the end of that time, Saturn will advance into Aquarius then retrograde back into Capricorn for awhile. If your Saturn is late Capricorn, check with your astrologer to see exactly when your Return is. Saturn was last in Capricorn 1988-91.

First Saturn Returns are at age 28/29. The second is about age 58. They can be serious. At age 28/29, many start lifelong careers, get significant promotions, get married, buy a house and the first child is on the way! For some, there can be hardships that cause delays and expected dreams never do come true. The Great Spirit has other plans for you. For some a Return may not even be a blip on the radar ’cause all’s well. 58 happens either way as well. There may be a second chance, retirement, a whole new tack in life! However it is, it will be Capricorn style.

CAPRICORN WITH OTHER SIGNS

Capricorn is the third and last of the Earth signs. The fertile lowlands and meadows, farms, are Taurus domain. Virgo tends the plants and animals, does superb property management, cleans the houses, is nanny to the children. Capricorn views them from that breathtaking hillside building they built, or from the high rise top floor, penthouse suite!

Earth signs generally get along with Water signs, but not always. Saturn/Cap is a hard worker. Pisces not so much. If the surf is up, they’re gone. If the business is music/film it can be a downright magical combination! Cancer and Cap are both highly interested in financial security, a good home for the family, family lineage, good jobs, long term relationships. Cap needs to consider their feelings, spend time with them. Scorpio is not only interested in superior financial commitments and insurance, a secure domain and business, but also needs dedicated and devoted relationships – both personal and business. Scorpio also wants your good health – state of mind and body. Capricorn is right on board with all that. Capricorn deeply values longevity and a history of success and integrity.

Saturn and Capricorn challenge the other Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer and LibraAries is boss allergic, independent to a fault! They are innovative rather than obedient. They want to be first! Cap needs to give them room to maneuver. Cancers like a supportive mothering relationship, consideration of their feelings. Saturn/Cap is sometimes just all business. Either do the job now or come back when you can. They don’t have time for this, get someone else. And maybe they are right. Let it go and get work more to your Spirit. At home, Cap, make time for the family and don’t talk business at that special time. They love you. Libra is social and wants you to be polite. Cap can be so to the point they are brusque with no amenities. Libra may be caught crying in the restroom. If Libra wasn’t such a good front person and so artistic, Cap might send them packing in a minute. If your boss is a Sat/Cap type, see if they balance their sometimes lack of manners with respect and acknowledge your good work. Cap, do a little thinking first. It may be quite worth those extra moments.

That leaves Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and Air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Leo can be a little flamboyant, which often warms that Caps heart as they can walk proud with such a glamourous Being! Sagittarius is hard to pin down since they love to travel so much, so unless it’s a travel business they do together, Cap doesn’t feel they are reliable. Gemini just keeps Cap spinning. The information better be good and succinctly given or they are banished! Aquarius was born to break rules and Sat/Cap lives for rules. However, if they are collaborating in a community organization, it works!

If you are older than 28/29, wherever Saturn is in your birth chart right now is where it was 28/29 years ago! Do know that the other planets are NOT where they were 28/9 years ago, so there will be some the same and a lot not! Each of your houses or sections of your chart have special purpose. Whatever ways Saturn is aspecting planets or factors in your chart, it is often memorable, sometimes profound.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Jupiter Square Pluto - Boston Marathon Veteran Earl Granville

The human spirit is alive and well! At the 2017 Boston Marathon Earl Granville, a veteran who participated on his running blade, was actually in fine shape and when his running partner couldn’t finish, he picked her up and carried her over his shoulders to the end.

x
This combination is now the second of a string of 6 aspects that started back in Oct 2016. They will all be going forward/direct, and finish, one by one, now through Nov 11. After this one, Aug 4, there are only four more to go. These last four are what I called the Holiday Four that all happened within 8 days, Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve 2016!

The first Jupiter square Pluto was Nov 24, 2016 in a challenging FIVE Planet T Square. It was the first exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election!  Read about the beginning of the new presidency: Link Not only did this aspect occur at a highly charged political time, but it is an intense political aspect!

The second square was exact March 30, 2017. Here are potent events that happened in the seven days preceding the square:

Mar 22 brought the Terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge and Houses of Parliament.
Mar 24 US President Donald Trump and Republican party forced to pull their attempt to repeal Obamacare.
Mar 28 Trump signs Energy Independence executive order undoing Obama climate-control measures.
Mar 29 UK Prime Minister Teresa May signs article 50 letter, sends to to the EU, formally triggering Brexit.

My retrograde post then was more about Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. 

The third Jupiter square Pluto is soon now, Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse.  As of June 20, Summer Solstice, Jupiter was at 13 Libra, Pluto at I8 Capricorn, already within 5 degrees of each other. They complete the square at 19 Libra/Capricorn. If this closely aspects your personal chart, especially you Capricorns, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out.

Jupiter is on a 11/12 year cycle, so every 3 years it will complete a conjunction, opening square, opposition, closing square, and return to conjunct again.

  • Jupiter last conjuncted Pluto, 12 years ago, once, Dec 11, 2007 at 28 Sagittarius.
  • The opening square was  from Jupiter in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn, 3 times through 2010/11.
  • There were 3 oppositions while Jupiter was in Cancer 2013/14.
  • Now we are having the third of 3 squares while Jupiter is in Libra 2016/17.
  • Next will be the 2020 conjunctions starting another 12 year cycle. Jupiter will be in Capricorn again, Pluto, the slowest moving planet, still in Capricorn.

You see, Jupiter/Pluto connections are not so rare. but Pluto goes into Aquarius in 2023. It won’t be back in Capricorn for another 248 years! That means this square is the last of its kind for a long, long time. The 2020 Capricorn conjunction then takes on special meaning. Before the Jupiter/Pluto exact conjunction, March 18, 19 and 20, 2020 there is a strong 3 outer planet conjunction as Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet leaves Capricorn! Mars the Activator is there, and on the 18th, Moon is too, making a 5 planet stellium in Capricorn! Jupiter will be at 22 degrees, Pluto at 24, Saturn at 29. This Aug 4 square is the formation leading up to it, breaking the old house down, opening gateways to the future of Capricorn!

Serious other events have occurred since that first aspect in Nov 2016. One of the results has been how much people are seeing it depends on each one of us to live what we want to see happen regardless of governmental dictates. We must truly live our ethics. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is stepping up to the plate regarding the Paris Agreements. States are signing on for the Paris Agreements. Cities are choosing 100% Renewable Energy policies. Worldwide we are seeing events that will continue to DO what it takes to make things better for the planet and ourselves and our children!

Jupiter in Libra wants growthful open relationships, to expand their network of alliances, to point to the future. As US government is pulling back from world relationships – with our neighbors in Mexico and Canada, stopping immigration, leaving the Paris Agreements, in fact not even wanting a relationship with our planet/climate control, abandoning protecting our cherished lands – it is causing other alliances to be born to take up the slack and not let progress die in its tracks. There is unity like never before.

Pluto in Capricorn symbolizes the backlash of the old guard (Capricorn), it’s not going down without a fight (Libra). The fact that it has to fight shows it is on its last legs. Some old ways are good and always will be. Some were instigated out of not realizing, not having foresight (Jupiter) of the expenditures of natural resources, extinction. Some came from pure greed (Pluto). It calls for massive education (Jupiter), person by person. Every relationship needs to be respectfully questioned. Both sides need to be considered. Good things will come from both. Pluto in Capricorn has powerful practical good sense, some very timely, some pure necessity. It knows what measures can be taken while the long term goal is in progress. It knows what to do so windows aren’t missed while Jupiter in Libra is out traveling, playing or socializing at art class. Yet we all know a lot of deals are made while playing golf! Sometimes relaxation helps the brain see the whole picture and find remarkable solutions! Both Jupiter and Pluto have a lot to offer.

We need to be steady in the Light while Pluto is in Capricorn until 2023. Six more years. Pluto 20 years in Aquarius, 2023-2043, will be exceedingly different! It could be extreme chaos, tremendous freedom, technology and innovation beyond belief, insanity or enlightenment! Stunning collaborative consciousness, the time when artificial intelligence becomes greater than human intelligence – singularity! The last time Pluto was in Aquarius, 1777 to 1799, individual rights and freedom were challenged by the French and American Revolutions. There may be a different kind of Revolution coming, but it will happen! We shall pray.

Right here at home, personally, healthwise, Jupiter is weight gain, hips/thighs. Libra rules the kidneys, lower back and ovaries, balance. Lower back pain, and problems caused by too much sugar or rich food are common complaints. Pluto is the detoxing planet, colon and eliminatory organs, sexual organs. It also has to do with seeing your therapist. Capricorn is bones, knees especially, and skin, being cold and tired, depression. Grief and loneliness can figure in. All of this together is a complicated venue. Take care of yourself, get expert care if you need it. Keep your balance, let go of real or imagined hurts. Eat well, find peace. Peace can be in meditation or taking a meaningful active stance. Ballet, Tai Chi.

It’s easy to see that relationships, for those of you having factors in your charts close to these degrees, may have some challenges. Jupiter in Libra can be forthright and not so clear about personal boundaries. They are curious, want an explanation, the whole story. That’s not Pluto’s nature. Pluto in Capricorn is conservative, cautiously naturally protects its own for many reasons, some of which will never be anyone else’s business. It’s not just their secret but the secret of another as well.

Matters of truth may come up. There could be sneakiness or flirting that misleads others to think there is deception. Innocently it may be getting that surprise birthday present, or it could be you have been in denial and there really is a problem – personal, financial, illegal. If time doesn’t tell the story in a good way, then you may need to part. Future wishes may be quite different and that’s exciting, or there really is no pleasure together because they are that different. Maybe you are no longer willing to live a half life, hoping, compromising, held back. Jupiter in Libra doesn’t want for anyone to hurt, but sometimes all that’s left is letting go. Pluto in Capricorn loves deeply and is no quitter, but natural endings do come along.

If things have been neglected, it may be time for that rebuilding your future! Your relationship may have a solid foundation and you all make a timely rescue and recovery! There may be more juice than there has been in a long time. Make time for each other, take a little trip somewhere special, give each other gifts. Maybe even renew your vows!

Careers may crumble and you may be glad. Finally that’s over! See about a restoration business or recycling. Check out financial businesses, medical, research, sciences, technical work. Look into building materials. Or look to the arts and social people businesses, travel, resorts, sports, imports, anthropology, universities! Combine these marvelous opportunities! You could go back to school. If finances are slim, do a little at a time. Take a good sharp look while this aspect is afoot. Breakthroughs are quite possible!

Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for Aug 4 and then for 2020. Together we can do it! Steady on.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries - World Friendships!

Unique friendships across the world…

6.20.17 Note: As of Summer Solstice we are still in progress with Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. The last aspect is July 4! This aspect is the prominent outer planet connection in the Cancer New Faery SuperMoon June 23 and Full Moon July 8. The July 4 aspect is the first of the last of six aspects that started late 2016, retrograded and repeated 2017. They will all be going forward/direct, and finish, one by one, now through Nov 11.

4.19.17 Notes: These four aspects closed 2016, repeat two more times, are now the main aspects of 2017. They finish Nov 11, 2017. Eleven, eleven! Currently the closest aspect in progress is the April 30 Saturn square Chiron. See #3 below. Next is Saturn trine Uranus May 18, at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER! See #1 below please. For its May 17 companion aspect see Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. These aspects are all strongly tied with the Taurus time New & Full Moons.

x
2016 opened with a second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. Jupiter inconjuncted Uranus two times. Jupiter in LIBRA reverses the aspects, opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! It started opposite the first of 3 times the day after Christmas. Holiday differences of opinions, broad exchanges of information were very likely. 2015, 16, 17 have been and will be linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. See more! In addition, SATURN starts aspecting these two planets as well, Christmas Eve and on the Dec 28 NEW MOON.

These aspects are part of what I’m calling the Holiday Four at the end of 2016! Saturn and Jupiter are alternating. The first two aspects are to Uranus, the second two are to Chiron. All four aspects are different, strongly activating factors in our charts from 18 to 23 degrees.

  1. Christmas Eve, Dec 24 Saturn trine Uranus, 20 degrees. May 18, 2017 retrograde at 26 Sagittarius. Third and last Nov 11 at 25 Sag! Saturn goes into Capricorn Sep 2017. Uranus goes into Taurus May 2018. Saturn retrogrades back to an almost exact trine Uranus. Uranus goes into Gemini eight years later, April 2026. Saturn catches up to make the conjunction June of 2032! It will be 16 years before we have another exact aspect of these two.
  2. Dec 26 Jupiter opposition Uranus, 20 degrees. Mar 2, 2017 at 22 Libra. Last Sep 27 at 27 Libra.
  3. Dec 28 Saturn square Chiron, 21 degrees. NEW MOON 10:53 PM Pacific. Jupiter sextile Saturn closest Dec 28/29. April 30, 2017 second Saturn square Chiron 27 Sag. Third and last Nov 2 at 24 Sag.
  4. Dec 31, last day of the year, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, 21 degrees. The year finishes with aspects to Chiron. Second inconjunct was Feb 14, 2017 at 23 Libra.. Last is Sep 23 at 26 Libra.

1. Saturn and Uranus rule neighboring signs earthy conservative Capricorn, and far, far out electric air sign Aquarius! Short and tall! Saturn is the lawmaker, Aquarius the lawbreaker! Saturn says if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Aquarius takes the clock apart and puts it back together, figuring out a new way to make it better. Saturn, the builder scientist, is so steady, determined. Uranus is infinitely unpredictable, thinks out of the box, researches and invents! Saturn puts up the framing, Uranus installs the electrical system. A trine is usually a harmonious link, so businessman Saturn and banker/bartender Uranus do find common ground – buy the bar or bank, right?! And they can be surprisingly great friends! Off to the patent office, then into production! Futurist Uranus, ahead of his times, chats it up with Saturn in farseeing Sagittarius. Together they get insight how to make things work for current everyday use. Saturn happily follows right along.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries brings a calming, a reasonable sense of responsibility, yet is still spunky in fire signs! Sag and Aries love their independence, so Saturn ordains and protects the function of much needed fast getaways to restore the spirit. There is more leeway with working hours, less hovering to see things get done ‘properly,’ more creativity encouraged! Working with friends is super, same general goals, things get done quickly. Uranus in Aries does split second mid air research that saves time, points amazing directions, is invaluable in making this project stand out above others of the past! Flying consultants in, brainstorming, making new working friendships and alliances is just fun! Have your gifts ready! The company party will be in good taste and spectacular with the computerized light show! Don’t forget to invite your Father’s friend and take lots of px for Facebook!

The May 18 second/retrograde trine Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy, the Sun of our Sun! It is considered to be a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Uranus was the God of the Heavens, rules the stars, in other words, is our galactic planet! Saturn, the planet of reality, simply makes the channel clear for clean transmission and reception!

The last trine with Uranus, Nov 11, eleven eleven seventeen, is the first of the amazing continuous positive string of aspects late 2017 through Nov 1 2018! Do it well; get a good start!

2. Jupiter in social Libra livens up in opposition with Uranus in Aries in the dark of winter. There are choices to be made, who to hang with, go together or stay out of it, independent. There may be separations from friends, and I don’t just mean holiday travels. Letting go has its merits. Meeting new potential partners, business and pleasure, is likely. Negotiating across the table can be done with regard, giving equality, accepting the ways of others, integrating the gifts all bring.

Jupiter opposite Uranus can bring a shocking or super exciting event. Be cautious about flights. Get the insurance, choose an airline with high safety standards and a good track record. Be careful in general. Don’t stray from your group. World events often happen a week or so preceding the date, Dec 26, up to 2 or 3 days following. As much as New Moons are thought to be quiet, they can be a time of intense focus. even loneliness. If leaving your holiday family gathering, you may not be as alert as you think things over, miss them. Keep tabs on your surroundings and the people with you.

This is a significant aspect because it emphasizes matters of the challenging Uranus square Pluto. It is a reminder of happenings since 2010 that remain with us, many taking years to work through. That square returns to a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind. During that time Jupiter also squares Pluto. That configuration will bring actively challenging Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. March 7, 22-23 and 28 (NEW MOON Mar 27) will be particularly potent as Jupiter closes on its second square with Pluto exact March 30 at 19 Libra. See more

3. WARNING. Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend holiday marriages this year unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can do so much better? Classically three of the Holiday Four aspects are difficult and none are traditional marriage aspects. Though the Holiday Four are activating 18 to 22 degrees, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, they are still part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

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

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

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

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

4. Jupiter inconjunct Chiron spreads the healing. 

Those of you trained that inconjuncts are bad, have only half the info! For many years I just about shivered when I saw them coming. Divorce was likely because partners were distracted, sidetracked – read stepped out. Uncomfortable things were avoided/ignored, daily things untended added up, causing more stress. Debt was often as finances were neglected, divorce caused extra expenses to both parties. Death was even part of the scenario. People just up and left the planet, lost contact, often unexpectedly estranged, though if you looked way back, you could have seen the signs. In many ways, it all seemed out of our control. Astrologers didn’t use the 150 degree aspect very much when I first started astrology, thinking it was hard to see in a chart, and to this day, it isn’t listed in many astrological calendars, even the Jim Maynard calendars! The other word for it was even weird, quincunx. Time to turn the tables.

Here’s the other half. Rather than bungling through or not at all, be proactive. It’s there, an open link, use it! Jupiter is adept at sizing up potential, eager to check out the sidelines. Detours are often more interesting than the daily ride. With Jupiter in Libra there surely needs to be some reassessments over there! Proactively offer your peacekeeping legal services, coaching expertise, the grace of your ideas and insights. Talk about what you see – both sides, leave no stone, weak spot, unturned. Chiron was a wise Centaur, so ask your questions, commiserate and consolidate! Put ignorance behind you. Whether you go back to the main road, or keep on going on this one, your knowledge is enhanced, good to spread it out as far and wide as possible! Your network expands into a whole new quadrant! You are not alone on this quest. Others will be traveling it as well and you can share what you reap at the crossroads.

[5.] In addition to the above four aspects, there is an almost, very, very close Jupiter sextile Saturn riding along with them. Jupiter and Saturn come closest Dec 28 (Capricorn New MOON) and 29! This, a positive aspect, may also bring up sadness, but deals well with it. See more

These Holiday Four are the first of three aspects each. They end 2016, and are active two more times each in 2017 also. Do your best to do them well. Get them off to a good start; the best results are yet to come!

May your New Year be well blessed.

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans!

Pisces Joanne Woodward YoungPisces Joanne Woodward Senior

2.27.1930 Pisces, Joanne Gignilliat Trimmier Woodward! Numerologist’s delight! LOOK at all those double letters and three letters twice in her last name! Doing the Three Faces of Eve was an easy feat for her! That and being a Pisces chameleon!

Pisces is a sweet lovely sign, though even when Pisceans smile there is a wee bit of a sad cast to their eyes. Their empathy is far more than for any one person; they see the sorrows of the world. But with Venus conjunct her Sun, Joanne was and is a standout beauty! From starlet to white haired senior, she has worn her age well. Capricorn rising didn’t give her and old look, but a wise look. Though considered an ‘old’ sign, they often soften and look younger than their age in elder times. Her Jupiter is in Gemini in good aspect with her Sun. Jupiter is a warm spirited teacher. Gemini scintillates, has instant perception, the gift of an array of voices, is forever young!

Jupiter in Gemini also has an uncanny intelligence to see the outcomes of several futures and picks the one that gives the best return. She sure did with Paul Newman! They were married 50 years, and you can believe they had sympatico charts! Both have Capricorn Ascendants. Her Moon and other factors are in his Sun sign Aquarius; his Moon is right with her Sun Pisces! What bonds. There are other great aspects as well, plus favorable declination combinations to back it all up!

Ever learning, in 1990, Woodward graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, along with her daughter Clea! Newman delivered the commencement address, during which he said he dreamed that a woman had asked, “How dare you accept this invitation to give the commencement address when you are merely hanging on to the coattails of the accomplishments of your wife?”

Philanthropy is a strong suit for savior Pisceans and humanitarian Aquarians. In 1988, Newman and Woodward established the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a nonprofit residential summer camp, and year-round center named after the Wyoming mountain hideaway of the outlaws in Newman’s film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The camp, located in Ashford, Connecticut, provides services to 20,000 children and their families coping with cancer, and other serious illnesses and conditions, free of charge.

Joanne has won Best Actress at the Academy Awards, at the Cannes Film Festival, and two Emmys as well! Quite a woman. Wishing her continued successes.

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Pisces! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Pisces is a couple of signs beyond, as sensitive and flowing as Pluto in Cap is intense and sharp! That doesn’t mean Pisces doesn’t get things done. It is so intuitive it saves time, so Capricorn loves that guidance. When Pisces needs a leg up, Pluto senses the need for an overhaul, and Capricorn lends a hand step by step. They have all seen their share of difficulties and are powerful in their responses. Sometimes Pluto and Cap get lost in their moneys and reputation, but Pisces reminds them it has to mean something more or the Soul left behind gets dim. When they all team up, Spirit prevails.

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. The Sun’s annual course lends Light to subtle places, our vision is brightened. We stand a little taller, think of ourselves as a beacon in the storms, a master of the tides of Being. Neptune’s immersion makes us know we are all a part of each other. Neptune’s rise on a sea swell lifts us to see glimpses of the possibilities. As we rise and fall, we carry the understanding among us, as natural cycles unfold and at the same time, we are carried further and further into realms we never knew existed. We can be a tidal torrent or in silent suspension. When the Sea is calm, there is a peace beyond anything, anywhere, anytime. We are so still, we can feel ourselves, who and what we truly are.

Neptune brings a pure fusion of choate being. What you denied before becomes apparent. Old seams unravel as the tides of spirit rift the veils. The whole truth seeps in, then pours through us. We are washed clean, freed from residues of what even an old Soul thinks is true. Revelation becomes a verb, and we forevermore know now how to use this technique of evolution. The awakening of Aquarius becomes the seeing of Pisces. Some of this happens gradually over years of time, water over stone; other times it is the Miracle in a moment.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius and Pisces is the next sign. Aries is the sign after Pisces. Uranus makes the bold proposal. Pisces is not really surprised, but may miss a beat with the wild lightening approach! It absorbs and records the frequency, the vibration, noting its instinctual preliminary reaction. Some think of Pisces as a pushover wimp, but I would respect them. Though generally kindly, if they feel abused, back to the wall, you may find yourself at the bottom of a wave being pounded, or subtly undermined and you never find out where from…. Word to the wise. If your ideas are understood and appreciated, they will give you everything they have got to help save the world!

Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Pisceans are feeling the old mythological pains, of body or psyche. They are being called to learn how to heal, often in difficult seemingly hopeless situations. Teaching often entails the healer learning when to let go, move on to plant seeds in fertile ground. Business depends on whether it is Soul inspiring. Otherwise it is a drudgery to Spirit and escapism prevails. Sensitive Pisceans usually do better with partners who are in supportive and encouraging accord, in clean and gentle surroundings, rather than dark confrontive situations requiring constant recovery. Chiron can knock you down, pick you up, and bring a remarkable life!

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016 as it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof. In Sagittarius it is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Sagittarius squares Pisces, a challenge. Pisces can be elusive and illusive while Saturn wants conclusive. Pisces can see right through Saturn’s insecurities, why they need to be so in control. It may take awhile, but Saturn sees that the world doesn’t come to a halt when things, people, don’t go as planned. A little leeway opens doors! Sag likes traveling anywhere and Pisces doesn’t mind. If Pisces needs to get a grip, Saturn is the perfect character builder type to help. Sagittarius reminds them the purpose of the game and encourages them to stop whining and get going! LOL! This combo calls for Pisces to be most understanding in the beliefs department. Saturn in Sag likes to build churches for the true believers, do it by the good book. Pisces meditates and claims to have talked with God.

Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Pisces, and in a manner of speaking is a pseudo T Square, Jupiter representing Sagittarius. Sag is the sign at the midpoint between Virgo and Pisces. All are what we call Mutable signs – changeable, adaptable, moving. Virgo adjusts the schedule to financial standing, health needs. Jupiter seeks a greater range, changes direction when it discovers a more promising opportunity. Being opposite, Pisces may sense this is not for them and widens the gap. Jupiter and Virgo are way too picky, too busy for solitude loving Pisces and they can’t agree on the purpose of the venture anyway. Or, Pisces is drawn along by Virgo’s impeccable data and Jupiter’s generous intention. They may offer Pisces funding to help teach the disadvantaged, save lives with health programs. It may be time for Pisces to hire an assistant to manage events, chauffeur, write their scripts!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a Fire and Air combination, SO social and Pisces is so not! But what is an artist, a musician, without their attorney or media manager?! It’s good to open our Spirits more to others around us. Balancing our inner world with the world as it is, scary, amazing, rich, is a maximum fulfillment. We feel more alive. We find ways to buffer our sensitivity while among our fellows. We are glad to offer our perceptions to help others through the nuances of their relationships. We see similarly to Libra in that we can put ourselves in another’s place, be more forgiving and understanding. Teaching is more eloquent, even poetic. Opinions, though often disparate, find ways to coexist as all learn from each other. Jupiter in Libra offers beautiful and inspiring invitations. We feel honored to be among the chosen.

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

Pisces ~

Magical Dimensions, Landscapes of Nether! 

Pisces Ocean Fantasy Mermaid Unicorn Fairy Castle

To many Pisceans fantasy is an elemental part of life, all is blended, merged, connected. At the edge of the worlds, beyond within, moving to stillness. No molecule is left behind. We are swept in the tides of all being, shuffled and polished in the tides of life. We merge wholly with some for a time, wave as others pass by. Part of us is part of them, goes with them yet we are still here. Pisces is all and entirely nothing.

Being in love with a Pisces is a union well beyond words. Twin Flames, Soul Mates are terms we often hear. There is knowing with no thinking. Spirits are swirled like a teasing ice cream, the eddies in the tide pool. There are times when each IS the other. Other times there is a disconnect as one or the other wanders into another fascinating world. They may be gone a few moments, years, or simply never return, vanish. It is speculated the Soul takes them where they are needed most. Sometimes there is a need for solitude, to find one’s own center again, then they are back.

Pisceans may be mystifying, no discernable hard facts. They certainly aren’t bookkeepers like their opposite sign Virgo. Earthly organization is not their need, they are on Divine schedule. Definitions are in the moment and depend on who you are with. Time is irrelevant. Money isn’t a matter. Sexuality may be ambiguous.

If Venus is in Capricorn, perhaps there are more standard mores, gritty work accomplished, a platform built for the entertainment, future outcomes levied in. Musicians, composers of excellence.

If in Aquarius, and with Mercury there too, life and sexuality are likely to be different. And that’s putting it mildly. We don’t usually think of Pisces as rebellious, but in this case, watch your mismatched socks! Don’t be too surprised if they are spiritually radical – that can be dedicated to atheist! Either way, those beliefs are super important to them. Oh can they play and sing! Melodious or off key, bizarre to exceptional, they are enchanting. Bright colored birds of many iridescent colors.

If Venus and Mercury are in Pisces with their Sun, they will more truly please themselves, be the most unpredictable as they morph to whomever passes by and catches their fancy, experimenting with the nuances of life. Early in life they may be very vulnerable and naïve, and when older you can never fool them. They know before you do. This combo is most susceptible to sorrows and addictions. It’s important to keep company with people who love who you are, celebrate and encourage you. This magical mix loves the night and has phenomenal dreamtime!

If Venus and Mercury are in Aries, you might never guess them to be Pisces! Aries is blink-of-the-eye fast, first and furious! Of course, Pisces helps with that because their intuition responds before Aries senses the need to act! Double time quick! In Aries any meditation or sitting still, being dreamy and wondering, doesn’t last long! Aries wants to DO, be there, get things rolling, lead the troops! Pisces believes in the cause, Aries puts it into action. A walking, or better yet, running meditation suits.

If Venus is in Taurus, things are steady and true blue. There’s a slower pace, flowers and danger of wine and chocolates. Sweet voices, an elfin face, whimsical Spirits. They may have a garden by the sea, harvest the seaweed at the shoreline, sit at the foot of a tree, spend hours lost in contemplation of nature. Sometimes money matters more. Touch may calm them. Beauty pleases them.

And, of course there can be mixes of the above that give different flavors and talents. There are flavors with Pisces, and with any sign. Venus is up to 47 degrees from the Sun, within the same sign or up to two either side. Mercury only up to 28 degrees, in the same Sun sign or its neighboring sign. Go to Astro.com, Free Horoscopes, to find where your planets are. If you don’t know your birth time, use 12 PM, midday.

Doing business with a Pisces is not by the book. Imagination takes them and you on amazing rides. If it’s a serious gotta sign these papers, a deadline, keep sessions short and focused in an undistracting place. If they are bored, they simply change the channel and they escape! If it’s a brainstorming session you’re in luck! Open the doors and windows, cater the lunch, record, put your feet up on footstools, go to the beach! If it’s bookkeeping, report simply and get to the point. Human Resources are always a challenge. Pisceans forgive and understand, want to help, and be sure to give a good severance if we must let them go. You may have to do a takeover and offer to do it for them.

Pisceans do better with work that helps others – charities, saving animals and people, the planet. Many of them have been down themselves, and with their empathy at high volume, see the needs. They see the future as it could be if change isn’t made. Prevention is a key part. Some of them are down on their knees, one on one with children. Some are in great hardship at disaster sites doing recovery work. Others are in research labs tinkering with tiny things that mean a lot. Others are on stage blasting the message through story and poetic songs, both heartbreakers and inspiration that moves hearts of stone!

Health matters are sometimes obscure, hard to define. Other times, if obvious weight, drug or alcohol addictions, who needs a doctor?! It’s self evident. Feet, the part of the body that stands under, understanding, are Pisces’ domain. Swelling, allergies, sleep, dream disorders can be concerns. If you are a sensitive, you may be psychosomatically susceptible to other people’s illnesses. Since Pisceans have such acute hearing, are so sensitive to music and sounds, hearing and ear issues may happen at one time or another. Pisces is considered visionary, and that applies to your eyesight as well. It can be both psychologically or physically. We can be blinded, in denial. In astrology, people with important or many factors in the 12th (Pisces) House, Neptune with Moon, Sun, or at the Ascendant or Moon or Sun in the 12 House may have these issues as well. Get some good grounded help from reliable healers with a proven record of success.

Meditation, rest, music are helpful healers. Hydrotherapy, negative Ions by the sea, swimming, floating take you away. Doing service, volunteer work, the ‘Mission,’ takes your mind off things, and builds an aura of confidence as dream becomes reality.

Psychic Pisceans can be anybody’s twin. They know you, have many talents. Clairaudience is clear hearing. They can be clairvoyant, have clear vision as they view the sweep of life or location around you as events unfold. Their dreams are often predictive. Clear guidance is given in the ideas upon awaking. Levitation is not unheard of. Shapeshifting is common. It’s pretty funny when Pisceans are looking for a psychic. They have a hard time finding someone who sees more than they do themselves!

Neptune, the Pisces planet, will be IN Pisces until 2026, another 10 years! You might say, oh I have plenty of time, but it depends on what the degrees are in your personal chart. It will activate different factors as it goes along, or if your factors are in the first third of the degrees, it will be done with yours this year!

It is magical to have your planet in your sign! The romance of the ages dances before your very eyes! Neptune takes 168 years in its orbit, so it will be a long time before it is in Pisces again! Really take it in, be alive to it, ask for it to be in your dreams, in the mist of the surf you breath on the incoming tide! Feel the salt on your skin. Take a cruise to a sacred site. Open a seaside restaurant or sport business. Spend time at the beach, listen to the waves. Try windsailing, paddle boarding, or get a kayak. Walk under the starry heavens at night….

It’s an elemental embrace. And you are part of it.

Virgo Turkish Art Plate Kusadasi
Whether rugs, plates or tile work, Turkey, a Virgo country, has the finest intricate designs and craftsmanship! The plate above is at the Kusadasi market. 

Jupiter starts its once every 12 years trek in Virgo Aug 11. Always about a year in a sign, he finishes Virgo and enters Libra September 9, 2016. Those of you with Jupiter in Virgo will be having your Jupiter Returns! If your Jupiter is 13 to 23 Virgo, transiting Jupiter will cross your natal Jupiter three times in its retrograde cycle! Depending on how your Jupiter is situated with the other factors in your personal chart, and how other transiting factors are activating your chart, it can bring super good luck!

Jupiter makes its first aspect in Virgo Sep 16, opposite Neptune in Pisces one time only. To me it is as if Jupiter is checking in with Neptune to see what dreams could come true! I see it as a spiritual courtesy, an introductory handshake, and Jupiter is on its way to get it done!

In its year through Virgo, Jupiter makes no conjunctions or sextiles. Coming right up Oct 11, it mega trines Pluto! It inconjuncts Uranus. It squares Saturn next spring. It opposes Chiron. Most of those aspects happen 3 times, for a total of 12. The last aspect it makes in Virgo is the last inconjunct with Uranus the Awakener. It leaves the eyes wide open!

Though abundant Jupiter is associated with Sagittarius, a sign square to Virgo, Jupiter does very well in Virgo! Virgo is the Queen of Details and the more the merrier! She wants quality in the organization and happily organizes; Jupiter puts the light on things, gives the big picture, so the details are in perfect placement within the whole! Jupiter puts fun in the work and is happy to travel around to get the exotic materials to spice up the presentation! Jupiter, in fact, is delighted to show your work in all its stages, impressing others with your more than adequate services. It prepares the press, can easily show why yours is the best quality and that it has durability as well as being easy to use, and at the right price!

Jupiter loves planning, and travel, and Virgo guides the budget so you all can get to the most places for the least price! Carefully chosen (by AstroLocality), the places are superb gateways to insights that open further doors. There is a combination of love and learning. Virgos want to serve, and Jupiter wants to enjoy every moment from sunup to sundown and then some! Virgos want to know how it works and Jupiter loves a good story. Putting them together makes people inspired by what you have done! It’s virtual magic!

Teaching patterns are flexible and show people how to learn as well as what to learn. How to think makes everyone a creator! Coaching is automatic! Vital little steps are the precious beginnings of lifelong Paths. Practicing what makes you happy keeps you healthy and wisdom grows.

Health is highlighted! Jupiter may temporarily bring flare ups that require more care, especially if things have been neglected. New ways of healthcare may become available, or you learn a lot more, are more effective, problem solved! Or health may be superb! Virgo specializes in nursing, herbs, vitamins, diet. Schedules are mostly kept. Exercise is specific to the individual. Recovery from illness is steady. Body and mind, attitude, make a difference. A lot of the remedies are from foreign places, Jupiter dancing in excitement reading the labels! Keeping things Virgo clean and bright with lots of fresh breezes, and a lovely Jupiter view clear our mind and keep us extending our vision. Doing favorite things engages our attention to creating and crafting. Grow a mighty organic veggie garden!

All kinds of service industries will have the potential to expand! Bookkeeping, landscaping, pet care, cleaning, housekeeping, caregivers, maintenance, nanny, are a few. If you want more business, ask for it. Improve your skills. Jupiter loves learning; Virgo loves trainings. Ask for higher wages and benefits. Apply for the work you would love the most. Get your own life in order by using professional services. Write a training manual.

Landlords may purchase out of state or foreign properties, or cater to exchange students. Good time to hire apartment managers, give trainings. Tenants might enjoy a lease option to buy! You might offer property management services.

Jupiter is publishing; Virgo is the number one sign of authors! Jupiter will be in Virgo until Sep 9, 2016. Time to put the fingers to the keyboard! Get your material organized. Pay attention to what is popular that you like too! How tos are terrific, and how to do it yourselfs! Or write an accurately detailed historical novel, or a futuristic humorous love story with an uncommonly charming rascally villain and a delightfully naive heroine! Blog, blog, blog! Jupiter will speed your perspective and you will get it done in no time. Plan on publishing sooner than later. Jupiter can be the procrastinator, but if the goal is more delicious than the distraction, it focuses singlemindedly! Let’s do it!

Virgo is the only sign with a feminine symbol, the Virgin. As Goddess Persephone, she symbolizes Purity, the best within us. She is young, fresh, tempting and tempted. As Persephone’s Mother Demeter, she is wizened Crone, Goddess of Harvest and fulfillment, strengthened by life’s experiences. Whether you are protector or child, we thank you for your caring, willingness to work life.

Jupiter will be at your side, at times naughty and playful, at times loud with stories, disrupting with no thought to apologize. But he brings lots of good intentions and just plain joy! He’s robust, handsome and rather fearless, a bit silly, doesn’t always care where he’s going just as long as he’s going anywhere! Like no matter where you go, there you are. He will sweep you along, infuse you with magical herbal scents, take you on a rocket ride, and land properly among the veggie garden faeries!

The possibilities are limitless.

Astrology Health Reading - Be well!

For Astrologers:  Special notes on looking at a friend’s or loved one’s astrology when they have an illness….

You can look at their natal chart for susceptibilities, weaknesses.  Look at their ASC, 6th House, Saturn, whatever house/planet(s) rules what the illness is, difficult major aspects, aspect patterns.

Progressed Moon and transits are what trigger the weak spots in a chart.  So do a comparison of the natal and the transits at the time of the ONSET of the problem.  Get the time as closely as you can.  Remarkably and naturally, another person who comes into our life, acting as a ‘transit,’ can trigger health episodes.  Who you keep company with is important.  Just like we can have allergies to pets, I think we have ‘allergies,’ some more severe than others, to some people.  For an illness that doesn’t go away, compare your client’s chart with live-in loved ones to see if there is activation of sensitive health points.

Remember that outer planets move very slowly, for example Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year, so their effect is long term – they are not triggers.  Often it is the combined effect of Saturn and the faster moving ‘daily’ planets, Sun/Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars, that show up in ’emergency’ charts, that trigger episodes.

Sometimes illness is what it means to that person.  For example, at the extreme, death can show up involving Mercury because communications are broken, or as Jupiter because there is a funeral, or as Mars if it is angry or violent, or Venus if comfortable and at peace at home with friends/loved ones.  Sometimes you have to query the sick person to see what the illness means to them.  If you can’t query them, you need to read in reverse.  Simply read what IS THERE, that IS the answer, even if you don’t understand it yet.

Not only are you looking at what the aspects are, but since you know this person, what you can gently offer as ideas for healing the cause of the symptoms.  A weakness is something that is with us all the time, so what is that about?  The first need is for you to be the Seer, then to diagnose, and prescribe.  The client has to choose to do the healing, but it is your job to look at the chart to see how to inspire the choice to heal.

  • Venus/2nd Cusp Sign – What/who do they love, value?
  • Jupiter/9th Cusp Sign – What signs are their future indicators in?  What do they wish the world would know?
  • Mercury/3rd Cusp Sign – What do they think about?
  • Mars/1st Cusp – What does their body like to do?
  • Saturn/10th – What are their long term commitments?

Many times, a person will listen to you when they are ill, when they would never listen to you at other times.  Take advantage of the opportunity.

Clearly, your chart compared to the client’s comes into play when it’s a friend or one of your family, especially your Mercuries, how you communicate.  Do a comparison of yours and their charts.  If you have a negative judgment of them, they know it. It will be more difficult because it hurts them to be judged, especially when they don’t feel well and are more sensitive than usual.  They have to recover from your judgment, as well as their own pain.  It doubles their work, and delays the whole process.  Remember, it is that person’s karmic/spiritual Soul choice to take on the lessons they bravely came into this life to learn.  Clear your mind; BE only the healer.  See how the Mercuries interact, if at all.  If they don’t interact, see if you can find someone who has a good connection with them to act as a go between.

Look to see how you can use what Mercury connections you do have in good ways.

  • Saturn connections might like the straight facts, a small task to do. Jupiter might like a clever parable, a good card game.
  • Mercury could like a list of remedies, a good book, their laptop, a pet visit, while Neptune may need a lot of compassion and commiserating, real solitude, or favorite music.
  • Mars would like to know when they will be up and running again, get to the point – no lectures, and Venus needs a comfy bed, wants clean, fresh good looking clothes, their hair done, someone to talk with and flowers, please!
  • The Sun would like a well-lighted room, appreciation, some entertainment, while Pluto may need darkness, privacy, be enduring more pain than you realize.  Don’t overstay just because they are listening.
  • Talk baby talk with the Moon and let them cry.  Bring them favorite foods and their children to hug.  Old movies.
  • Uranus would like to hear about their friends, love it if you sneak in something forbidden.  Camaraderie counts.

Whatever sign their Mercury is in, try to think like that, as they would.  What would THEY want, and how would they like to hear about things?  Be like the salesperson – what’s in it for your client/customer?  You are ‘selling’ your ideas to THEM, not to yourself!  They aren’t you and they don’t want to be like you, they want to be and are themselves.  Healing modes per Sign

INTEGRITY  It takes strength and self discipline to do your work as an astrologer.  You are walking a fine line when you do astrology for friends and loved ones.  That’s why it’s not recommended for doctors to have their family as patients.  So remember, you have certain ‘blind’ spots when it comes to them.  In those cases, it is always good to have 2nd and 3rd opinions from other astrologers.  Yet, cosmically, who do your friends and family feel safest with when they need to hear hard facts, even if it’s your best enemy?  Who knows them better?  You see the dilemmas.  If you need to bow out, do so as soon as you can so someone else can come in and do the work.  Blessed be.
