2020 Mars Mercury Double Retrograde

The Venus/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence ends, July 25 and 28 with the Jupiter Retrograde sextile Neptune between them on the 27th! The Mars in his own sign Aries/Mercury in Libra-Scorpio Double Retrograde sequence starts July 25, the day the Mercury in Cancer double retrograde cycle ends, and two days before Jupiter retrograde sextiles Neptune!!! Mercury is first with Venus Love, then with Mars Action! Want it? Go for it! Mars in Aries starts his Retrograde CYCLE July 25 and completes it Jan 2 2021, 5 months! You have time to get it done, but don’t dawdle. We need new beginnings soonest!

Mars starts the retrograde part of his cycle Sep 9, covers the last half of his own sign Aries, 15 to 28 degrees! Mercury starts his retrograde cycle Sep 23, finishes Nov 19. During Mars’ retrograde, Mercury retrogrades in Scorpio back into Libra Oct 13 to Nov 3, Election Day! Mars is opposite the Sun Oct 13, goes direct Nov 13! The entire Mercury Rx cycle is within the Mars Rx cycle, and the entire Mercury Rx is during Mars Rx!

Mercury is the common factor to both double retrogrades. All these months, at this time, our communications mean so much. We wish it could be in person hugs, but we wait and find other ways to make our feelings clear by respecting distance – now another form of communication. Mercury was first with Venus Love, and now is with Mars Action! Want it? Go for it!

Mars used to be of two signs, Aries and Scorpio. Nowadays it is of Aries, Pluto given to Scorpio. Aries and Scorpio are both considered  warriors. Aries is right in front where Scorpio is the fighter like a therapist, wielding your inner power, or the ninja fighter often behind the scenes, the secret weapon so to speak! Today we often think of Aries as the first responder, a leader, rights fighter. They are quite different though both require a lot of intelligence, stamina and agility.

Mercury rules two signs to this day, Gemini and Virgo, both signs of the mind. Gemini is a communicator data gatherer and Virgo organizes and puts it to use. Mercury in Libra wants a balanced set of pro/con information, to know what their connections are, whether there is fair play and justice, if negotiation is possible, what the laws are about use of information. Mercury in Scorpio is concerned who’s paying for what, the behind the scenes motives, secret alliances, the costs. Important matters are about the virus, health and welfare, stats, finding a vaccine. Research is high on the list.

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is when a planet literally appears to stand still in the sky at the retrograde and direct turning points. Stations help us slow down. They are a pause when we are able to be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. The longer the station the more its strength. Mars wants to move, take action, so stations can be difficult, or it can be a relief to take a breather from the rigors of speeding here and there!

Since all the outer planets, Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter are Retrograde from Aug 15 to Sep 12, from when Mars Rxs Sep 9 to Sep 12, SEVEN planets are retrograde at the same time! It is especially concentrated because Mars holds STATION  (stands still) by 1’, that’s minute, Sep 9 and 10!

Mars holds a 1° Rx station from Aug 29 to Sep 21. The Rx is exact at 28 Aries 08.
Mars holds a 1° Direct station from Nov 1 to 26. The D is exact at 15 Aries 14. Nov 3  Election Day actions will hold that energy and anchor it. Aries can be true leadership for the people, childish rebellion, in behalf of only one’s self, fighting for or trampling human rights.

Mars is slower than Venus and Mercury, so his stations are longer than Mercury’s 8 day stations. Mars covers 15 to 28 Aries, retrograde Sep 9 to Nov 13. Allowing a 1° station, his retrograde station starts Aug 29, Rx is Sep 9, station ends Sep 21, a 24 day station. His Direct (turning forward) station starts Nov 1, Direct is Nov 13, ends Nov 25, a 25 day station.

Mercury stations are four days before and four days after the turns. Mercury covers 25 Libra to almost 12 Scorpio, retrograde Oct 13 to Nov 3. His 8 day Rx station at 11/12 Scorpio is Oct 10 to 17. His 8 day Direct station is at 25 Libra from Oct 30 to Nov 6. Mercury’s entire Retrograde is during the Mars Retrograde, a  DOUBLE RETROGRADE THE WHOLE TIME!

If you have factors in your chart at or very close to those degrees, you will be activated, especially at the station degrees. Check in with your astrologer if you have significant plans at those times. Plan ahead for what you want to get done, as much as possible, well before those times, and what you can do during those times!

Energy transfer. When planets are traveling together, in this case both retrograde at the same time, both are witnessing each other’s changes, both reconsidering different timing, reconstruction, taking a deeper look, sometimes not pleased while other times relieved not to continue as things have been. There is a certain camaraderie even if unspoken. It’s complicated when only Mercury is retrograde, but this time, even as Mercury thinks he has found a solution, Mars suddenly triggers a different take and there is another round of OMG what-to-dos? Mercury is more logical but admires Mars who takes immediate action, not dwelling on what everyone thinks! At last we are trying it out and finding out how it really works, if it works! Mars sees Mercury’s wheels turning and knows there might be an even better solution brewing and is waiting impatiently to get to give it a try! However, he may take a few thoughtful moments himself, save a little time! Mars/Aries rules the head; Mercury is mind! They can be a terrific team!

In Aries Mars is the leader of leaders, the first responder, consultant, inspires others to take action. If he can do it, they can do it! He started in Aries June 27, enters Taurus Jan 6. He is in Aries, one sign, 6+ months of his two year orbit! We are going to need him to power up his own sign! We need his expertise getting things started to forge ahead! During his retrograde, Mercury makes his third 2020 retrograde concurrently from Oct 13 to Nov 3, Election Day! You can see why what is discovered in this time is so important. What happens now leads directly to then! Not only does Mars lead, but the retrogrades give him 2nd chances, reviewing then having better options than he started with! He stirs the brew for real change!

The advantages of Mars in Aries Retrograde, spiritual fencing! Yes! Forward forever because you can take a step back while you are facing forward! No matter which way you go you are always on your game, seeing the possibilities, always leading the pack! Mars in his own sign has twice the punch, is quick on his feet, adapts instantly. He likes new but is a little tempery with delay. Yet he intuitively senses it’s a necessary part of the dance and gets on with his part. He is reminded about the great need for independence yet also knows how we are all a part of the great evolution together. Careful about clonking your head on something or it on you, cuts, stings, pushing too hard and being injured. Be careful on your bike when you take that corner quickly, a shortcut, detour or are on a new route. No matter what, you are always a winner! Spirit is with you!

Mercury’s Rx in Scorpio/Libra, recalibrates relationships of all kinds! Mercury is more deep in communications, and finding more ways to communicate. Mars sees that happening right before his eyes and instantly incorporates it in his new skill sets, passing it on to others immediately! It is not meant to necessarily be a peaceful or easy time. Libra is law/lawyers and Mars helps Mercury fight for rights and justice. Have a firm grip on your purpose and establish a strong support team. Expect change. Be flexible with how things get done. This will be both during and after certain Virus conditions. Some will be amped to make new beginnings, others will still be in recovery, grief. Please be kind and as helpful as you can.

There are THREE important outer planet events during and following the Mars/Mercury retrograde sequence, plus Saturn and Jupiter’s sign changes into Aquarius and the Mars/Mercury contact with the Galactic Center! 

Most important are any major outer planet combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Mars or Mercury make during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, indicate part of its purpose. The Venus and Mercury, now Mars and Mercury combinations, help prepare us for planetary aspects that follow, whether the aspects are in the sky or in your personal chart. And, of course, the connections they make, or don’t, with your chart factor in personally! See your astrologer if you need help with this!

During the Mars/Mercury sequence, besides the starting aspect Jupiter sextile Neptune through Oct 12, it includes the Jupiter conjunct Pluto through Nov 12, the Presidential Election. ThanksGiving, Christmas and New Year are included! Dec 16 and 19 see Saturn and Jupiter from Capricorn into Aquarius sign changes! Dec 21, Winter Solstice is the Great Conjunction, in Aquarius, the preceding time in Aquarius was 1405! (not a typo) You see that this Mars Cycle carries some weight! Aries rules independence, being able to stand up for yourself, to fight for your rights in a way that brings real change. Leadership is imperative.

Jupiter/Neptune opt for the Dream, compassionate beliefs. Jupiter/Pluto wants power, privacy, Truth. Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn have been trying to steady the ship, tend to the conservative side. Saturn may want to tame unpredictable Aquarius, but AQ is evolution and there is no stopping it. Aquarius lives in concert with conservative Capricorn guardianship. Jupiter loves being free and wild, loves planning and inclusive collaboration. AQ is right up his alley! The Dec 21 Great Conjunction will be a living contradiction of terms, both responsibility and letting go take the time it takes. Some mistakes will be made, but good changes will be made too. Instead of ‘recovery,’ we want a whole lot more than that.

1. Foremost is Jupiter Sextile Neptune! The Mars Retrograde cycle starts 2 days before the July 27 sextile! That is in the three day ‘hot’ period before exact planetary combinations. Mars is steeped in the, Sextile, the Sextile is the lead and purpose of the cycle. This is a super magical aspect. Jupiter is judge; Capricorn is spiritual law. Neptune in Pisces is the visionary business of all. Many of us are rethinking what is really important, what we would like to renovate, what to build for a more sustainable future. We are more aware of Planetary kinship, a spiritual consensus that is more important than government, power and profits alone. Jupiter sees the extraordinary potential, can map it out in realistic terms and Capricorn has the expertise to make it so! True Believers unite! Mars will see it done!

Jupiter makes its 2nd and 3rd aspects July 27 and Oct 12. Jupiter and Neptune stay close to 2 degrees or less until the third and last aspect Oct 12, so the aspect is virtually continuous for that period and a little before and after. The third Jupiter/Neptune aspect is at 18 Capricorn 45, conjunct the important Oct 30 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic degree! In turn, the Oct 12 2020 aspect is the closest preceding aspect to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. What Mars and Mercury learn now is significant because it will be telegraphed right down the line. Pay attention and don’t forget. Make notes, document, review at future times.

2. Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn  July through the final Nov 12 aspect Jupiter and Pluto will be within 5° or less of each other, continuing to do business. This aspect will give strong impetus to Mars since it happens the day before Mars turns Direct/forward, while Mars is in strong focus during his Direct station! Mars starts his cycle at 15 Aries with Jupiter Sextile Neptune and turns Direct at 15 Aries with Jupiter conjunct Pluto! Jupiter will remind hero Mars of his potent starting point, the ideals he pledged his efforts to! The 15th degree has significance in that it is the midpoint of any given sign! It is a symbolic turning point. You made it halfway, now finish up and top it off! Mars already went to 28 Aries when he retrograded, so this is the third time he will travel this pathway. The Finish should be well done!

The second exact Jupiter conjunct Pluto was June 29 just after Venus turned Direct June 24. We see that both Venus and Mars Double Retros are connected with this conjunction in the same way, at their Direct stations! As we have already seen, the conjunction can make you millions or make a huge mistake and lose a few. It can exaggerate your difficult condition or expand a good thing beyond your wildest dreams! It can be sadly obsessive, exceptionally cruel, or a healer with the most extraordinary abilities comes your way. In the US the particular importance of this aspect will be at the US Presidential Elections November 3. Its third aspect, the mature aspect, will be Nov 12 just after the election, in other words, THE aspect of the Elections! It is exactly at the same degree and sign as the recent Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto22 Capricorn!

Mars, a rights fighter, a fighter for the underdog, and Pluto, who raises people up to fight another day against all odds, can combine their talents, potently carry on in high stakes matters. If they are on the dark side they can be formidable foes, catch you coming and going. They can steal your life, seduce you with money and power, take your lover. If on the healing side, they can raise more funds than God! Both love sex, so keep your daughters safe, LOL! It’s not likely Mars Aries/Jupiter/Pluto Capricorn will fall for each other. Your styles are quite different. There are dominance issues every direction. Mars loves his independence; Jupiter can think he’s God and his truth is THE Truth, and loves the freedom to go anywhere anytime. Capricorn is not happy with that. But Mar cold think running away with Jupiter could be huge fun, just don’t let Jupiter take the company funds with him! Jupiter with Pluto can be extremely seductive, promise you whatever you have always wanted, and he knows what that is! He could have the power to do it! Just to be safe, get a credit and background check! You still have to decide if you trust him…keep your own funds intact. Capricorn can rule with an iron hand and Pluto has the money, so if you want some, you may regret speaking up.

Mars really needs to be extra cautious because he squares Pluto three times in his retrograde cycle! That is NOT a safe or easy aspect. Mars loves a good fight, but Pluto doesn’t usually fight fair and he may blame YOU and get away with it! He has more money. Better have your street creds in order and your monies in an untouchably safe place and take him by surprise. This is NOT a time to mess with someone else’s lover. There may be a high price to pay on all parts and then some, like children or disease. There are times to use your independence and take chances, but I would weigh this situation very carefully.

This square is Mars’ only repeated three times aspect during its cycle. Pluto is the planet of Scorpio. Besides being an important aspect on its own, the majority of Mercury’s rx cycle is in Scorpio! Mercury may be insightful and helpful to both of them. Mercury tends to be neutral, more logical, in general, even more so when in Libra.

3. Sign Changes! July 1 Saturn Rx left Aquarius, returned to his own sign Capricorn! Most of the Mars/Mercury retrograde cycles are while Saturn is in his own sign Capricorn. Mars/Aries nor Saturn/Capricorn are usually thrilled with each other. Capricorn wants obedience now, and Mars too in his own independent sign butt heads, Goat and Ram! Mars runs his own business. At the best, he sells the start up to Capricorn who has been waiting to pounce! Capricorn as employee isn’t keen on Aries flaunting the rules and some less than respectful demands rather than requests. Mars as employee is champing at the bit, knows he could do it better and quicker, too many rules and regs. Or, the boss may want so much done in such a short time no human could do it. It is demoralizing, also disrespectful. Saturn could give Aries his head?! If it works, great. Aries could listen very carefully, check in time to time, and do a great job. Aries could let Cap take care of the things Aries needs done, but is not of a mind to do himself. Collaboration may work quite well. Saturn in Capricorn

4. Dec 16 and 19 Saturn then Jupiter go into Aquarius! Their Great Conjunction happens late in the Mars RX cycle, Dec 21, Winter Solstice! It is the first aspect after their sign change and their first to each other after their sign change. It tags the new direction in Aquarius! What a powerful motivator. Jupiter has wild enthusiasm, with Saturn wants to work for the greater good of all if possible. Saturn is a little afraid of this new sign Aquarius, but tries to hammer down the possibilities he sees, some of it inevitable progress. We are preparing for and coming into a time of extraordinary change, when Pluto starts in Aquarius in 2023. Astonishing projects may be proposed and started. Some will be ahead of their time and fail. Others will take root and serve common cause. Great new consortiums will be founded and ones past their time disbanded. Mars will be right there beside Jupiter with the glint of excitement in his eyes. He loves trying out new things! He may try to stay out of Saturn’s clutches. But if Saturn gives Mars room to meander on his own, Mars will work hard and get that job done before anyone else could have! Until you get to know each other, and when the project is at critical points, have frequent check ins and things will go smoothly. Saturn in Aquarius

Saturn’s sign change has more significance than at first glance. In Aquarius it starts a long chain of Aquarian/Uranian aspects through Feb 2022. Saturn remains in Aquarius until March 7 2023, just days before Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius March 23, 2023! In AQ it prepares us for Pluto’s sign change!

5! GALACTIC CENTER! In the remaining 2020 New and Full Moon charts from July on, the Galactic Center is aspected every time! Since the charts are sequential by sign, refresh and update at each one. In the Mars/Mercury double retrograde, they both aspect the GC three times! Mars trines Aug 28 and Sep 21, the first and last days of the Mars retrograde station! Mars is going back to update what he started before. Dec 31, the last day of 2020, Mars makes the last trine and is trine at the last lunar chart of 2020 Dec 29! This is 2020’s special gift to 2021! Mercury sextiles the GC Sep 24, Oct 30 and Nov 7. The 30th and 7th define Mercury’s direct station dates! He is about to let loose and lean into it! The Galactic connections while the planets are in stations are significant because the stations are ‘stand still’ times that allow the information to be absorbed, focused on, anchored in our consciousness. This specific timing is extraordinary! Mars is spurred to divine action; Mercury thinks about it and gives him the best ideas how and what to do! They may be rather new ideas, but Mars loves new, so off he goes, learning along the way! Exciting and satisfying!

Mercury starts in Libra, sign of the laws of balance, lawyers, equality, fairness and justice, honor. Libra is poise, considerate and respectful relationships, cultural etiquette. She loves beauty, harmony, natural unfoldment. She is peacemaker, negotiator, collaborator, ambassador. Some relationships will come into new standing as Mercury thinks things over, turns the soil. Certain historical factors, museum quality, will come into play as well. Reputation is important. She may check you out just like getting providence on an important piece!

While in Scorpio, Mercury makes 2 three time aspects involving the 13 year ongoing Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus. Where Mercury can be a grazer, Scorpio wants to know everything deep as it gets. What do you really want? What’s good/bad about you? How did you make your money, your business and relationships history. Everything. Mercury can help Scorpio take the top off the extreme intensity by assuring him he doesn’t have to know it all at once. Scorpio won’t quit, but can be comforted if done the right way. Mercury can ramp it up by bringing enticing tidbits of information to lead the chase! Mercury might stay neutral or join the relentless investigation. Good as Drs, Police, researchers, investigators, historians, archaeologists.

Libra tests the balance we keep while riding with the deepest waters of life, often at great risk. Libra walks beside us, crosses the abyss on the tightrope steadying the way. Libra reaches forward to connect with the peoples we meet when we might still be too shy to chat them up ourselves. Scorpio heals quickly, has psychological and physical prowess, understands weakness and strength. They can heal others remarkably, and will stand true by your side, take the time it takes. Relationships are deep, finances intense! Scorpio knows Libra sees both sides, shows kindness to all they can, so Scorpio may share intimately using Libra as a meter of his own progress. Business makes better connections and good progress is made.

Mercury inconjuncts Chiron in Aries. Chiron in Aries is fast, unpredictable, so there is no pattern to intercept or follow. Mercury has to keep up, or set bait! Mercury would like to learn about Chiron’s healing methodologies. Aries has such a fast instinct, immediately proceeds to the next point, it takes a quick record keeper to track the way it’s done! Mercury in Scorpio might do best to set up surveillance cameras, record and decipher later. Chiron also has instinctive ideas on how to start new businesses. Mercury might do well to hire on and learn on the job. It might be the model for a sustainable investment.

Mercury also opposes Uranus in Taurus. The lights are on and they are working into the night. Uranus is Humanity, electricity, flight, freedom, evolution. It is friendship, being unique, unpredictable, brilliant, crazy, inventive. Taurus is the Bull, grounded, stable, mostly peaceful, has extraordinary strength. The Bull stands his ground, loves and protects his herd, is dependable. Taurus is Mother Earth. Food, basic health, environment, climate, sustainability. Mercury loves this rich resource combination. There is literally an endless wealth of materials and ideas available. Fortunes can be made. Mercury in Scorpio can smell it. There has to be a real connection though, or it will be like trying to hold a handful of air. Uranus is an air planet and either doesn’t care about you and your needs or intensity, or is on to the next thought and forgotten about you. Uranus and Taurus both are about being what they are. If you try to convert them, they will shut you out if there isn’t something for everybody. You might entice Taurus with some real gold bars, but good luck…

If Mercury goes in with some deeper Scorpio information, Uranus may be intrigued, especially if it involves wellness of body and mind, creative solutions to current Earth matters. Uranus is easily bored, so a simple interview could be very brief. Do your homework and ask some questions about what’s out on the edge that makes them think. Offer some funding and use of your research premises.

Mercury Retrograde DNA!

About Retrogrades!  

Retrogrades are fascinatingly complex! The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, that a planet appears to go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three time, and if outer planets sometime five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde planet is going ‘backward’ over the same area, they are ALL going forward, even the retrograde planet! It’s illogical, but that’s what happens. Venus retrogrades about every 19 months for only about 40 days. Only 7–8% of the population has it in their natal chart. Mercury retrogrades 3 times a year, every 6 years 4 times. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 18% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! Mars retrogrades every 25/26 months for 60-80 days.

The good part is that where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They go back, keep up, update! The type of special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart and what type of connections are made. Check out the planets of your own chart and charts of babies born during retrogrades!

Mars loves the beauty of a well oiled machine! Could be your car, that speedy bicycle, your exercise gear, your body! His chiropractor is a sports Dr! Being quick and first can save a life! Seeing Mars get people started and become independent is inspiring. Being impatient and a bit brusque at times is no surprise because they want the best NOW! Defending your rights is a blessing. Mars people are courageous and they make great crusaders! They are hot and spicy! Super first responders.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, paperwork, signing contracts, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential.

Every Retrograde is unique by sign and where it happens in your chart! As time goes on the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. Retrogrades, like any other astro phenomena, evolve. Each planet has its own matters. The sign(s) it is in while in retrograde, are how those matters are applied, what matters are processed.

What a journey! If you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. Maybe what’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward turns, like retrograde, give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward bends like turning forward/Direct, extend our vision of potentials. Mars in Aries is eager to get going, explore the new possibilities. Mercury in air and water, lets us think about alliances, working together. It shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn, that Station, gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations have room to occur, new ideas are teased into action! Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers about issues of the sign(s) Mercury is retrograde in! Or, do everything to make it possible so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers who can get it done no matter what. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved. Don’t move or change jobs if you can wait until 4 days after Mercury turns Direct/forward.

Mercury in Libra renegotiates relationships, business partnerships, what is now expected. Let that have plenty of flex because we are in a time of great change, and it is no surprise things change hourly when Mercury is retrograde! Wait on cosmetic body work or on starting long term dental work. Wait on redecorating, buying a new wardrobe, changing your company logo. You may decide to postpone Engagements and Marriages.

During Mercury in Scorpio it may be wise to wait until things have cleared a bit after the virus and the new economics many are facing. Many new businesses will be starting! Install safe security then check after the Rx to be sure it is working as intended. Check your books. If an emergency, update-make your will, otherwise, wait until the dust settles? If it makes sense, wait to start new health regimes. You may find yourself returning to one you did well with before. It may be a special time to preciously hold each other to our hearts and together help each other through this difficult time into amazing new beginnings.

Mars in Aries Retrograde is not the time to buy a new car or bicycle, especially if you use your bike for commuting, new machinery. Wait to get new sports gear. You might investigate a new exercise program or a personal coach, but sign up after the direct retrograde station. Avoid installing heaters. One of the old rules is no first time sex during Mars retrograde! That’s a good one to live by because you can’t take it back! If you go someplace remote, you might take another human with you this time and take a satellite device. What we are willing to live for is a critical question.

Clearly life doesn’t stop during retrogrades, and not all people’s charts are connected to all retrogrades. If your chart is connected to any given one, you will need to do your best and what you can. You can’t explain this to all people, maybe not your boss or even a good friend. Astrology? You’re nuts! Ok so there are times to find ways to stall or not connect, delay. You can estimate the possibilities of others not bringing certain papers to the meeting and bring them yourself, save the day! You can ask for a review of the current decisions 4 days or more after Mercury goes Direct/forward. If there are important must do meetings, Dr’s appts, call in advance to verify that the date and right time are on their calendars or yours! C-19 has changed a lot of longstanding appts. Don’t be surprised if the part didn’t come for your vehicle repair. Verify it is ordered, being sent to the correct address, the expected arrival date! Know that it might be late.

Document your work and events daily, save ALL emails and backup safely off the premises. No giving your passwords to anyone. If all goes well, fine. If not, all the pertinent information you need is available.

If you have other favorable prevailing aspects, especially with outer planets, then it is likely changes will ultimately be to your benefit. Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it! 

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.

Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse, Summer Solstice/Father’s Day June 20/21!!

Saturday June 20 Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse New Moon at 11:41 PM Pacific, 0 Cancer 21! Heads up: The New Moon will be on Sunday the 21st in Mountain, Central and Eastern Zones, on Father’s Day!

Venus Gemini and Mercury Cancer, both in Station, are plowing through the piles of information for what it all means and what to keep!

Cancer 2020 New Moon Canyonlands Cave Milky Way

The cave where the tribe used to meet… The False Kiva archaeological site is located near the Upheaval Dome area of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. By Christopher E Herbert. Finished shooting the Milky Way at 2:00 am before hiking back out with my friend and two other photographers.

This is the second eclipse this season, not visible in the US. Viewing: Partial Eclipse: Africa, southeast Europe, Asia  Annular Eclipse: central Africa, south Asia, China, Pacific. 

We start with the first Cancer new Moon at ZERO degrees, totally fresh! It’s a time for new ways of caring. Cancer is our family at home, our home in the world today. New Moon is seriously engaged with Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn, also at ZERO degrees! Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius, about to return to his own sign. They are askew by angle and Saturn is in an unpredictable sign not always comfortable to Moon, the 27 day planet who tends the hearth fires. Yet she herself changes a lot every 27 days, keeps her fingers on the pulse of the people, so, in a way, there is always something new afoot, and both Cancer and Aquarius are community minded. In AQ Saturn is making required changes to things that were anchors to our ethics, laws, necessities. We have had two ‘pandemics’ to face recently, COVID-19 and the worldwide George Floyd protests.

Cancer is not just your Mom, but our community, our culture. Cancer is the number one sign of business and they are terrific stock traders, sensing the nuances of the mood of the people. They 100% understand commodities, the daily household supplies we all need. They know when we are troubled and bring that casserole over to help us get through it. They wait until we are ready to talk or give us a talking to! Femininity is key. Our matriarchal lineage affects us more than we realize. We are our mother’s children, yet they nurture us, their instinct hoping we will surpass them.

Jupiter’s June 29 retrograde conjunction with Pluto will bring more deaths from both COVID and residual protests. At the same time people are stepping up to heal each other. As with environmental disasters, the playing field is leveled. We come to stand up to a common threat, and when you are drowning, you are glad for help from anyone no matter their skin color. We make new unlikely friendships and allies. These matters open us to interact more widely, get to know each other in different ways. Our new goal is not to restore, but to excel to new levels long overdue. Saturn’s preview in Aquarius sees potential that will cost a lot less. When it retrogrades back into Capricorn July 1, serious work will be done to implement significant changes. 

Both of 2020 Cancer’s New Moons are in Bowl charts.

This Bowl chart is less than 180°, planets spread across 7 signs with grouping and pairings! The first group is Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, the base planets of the Bowl, close with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet. Saturn is now in Aquarius, to retrograde back into Capricorn July 1! He is previewing Aquarius then will return to revamp and solidify Capricorn’s techniques before Saturn’s final entry into Aquarius and prepare for Pluto into Aquarius March 2023! The transition from traditional building to evolutionary humanitarian planetary work is so apparent with pandemic COVID-19 changes and worldwide protests for freedom.

Jupiter with Pluto was first exact April 4. It is now retrograding back to make its second/retrograde conjunction with Pluto June 29. They have been close since March 12, shifting perceptions back and forth, tweaking Capricorn structures, laws, responsibilities, extreme economic twists, environmental and human rights, COVID-19 concerns. There are secrets, revelations, lies and truths, bald faced power jockeying, greed, fear, deaths and saves. Many are seeing the potentials of incredible new options.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it. Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto will continue in their close conjunction through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect of the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference.

With Mercury’s retrograde that started June 17, we are in a week of the double retrograde with Venus until Venus turns forward June 24! Both are in Station! Station is when a planet appears to be standing still in the sky. A Station offers a pause, a focus, deepened perception, emphasis. Venus is in one of Mercury’s signs Gemini. Together they are whirling with thoughts, ideas. The word is getting spread by social media at the speed of light!

Mercury Retrograde is going back to sextile Uranus again. As some say, Friends (Uranus) are the family we choose! Uranus in Taurus is Earth herself, organic. Our Networks are vital to the new works we need to do among our people and for peaceful sustainability. 

Though retrograde, ‘going backward,’ Mercury in Cancer is leading the Bowl chart! This form of leadership gives you pause to consider just how that is done! Sometimes a leader has to take a few steps back, wisely retreat from a position that instinctively doesn’t feel right or the advance has not quite hit the time to move forward. Go back, strengthen your position, double check your information. If things need changing, update your approach tactics. Use that retrograde well. 

Moon is in her own sign! She feels the feelings, her patterns and passages. She is in Sun’s Heart Light, feeling stronger with his support. He in her sign understands her better, sees how important her nurturing is, not just to children and family, but to all of us. She is a model of that unconditional givingness. It’s like a Mother’s caress wherever she goes. Moon will quickly bring her feelings, insights, awareness of cycles to Mercury for his consideration. Sun will meet up with Mercury on the 30th, illuminating Mercury’s thinking processes. Mercury will see what can stand the scrutiny and pass muster. He will be charged with getting the information to all the right places as soon as possible. 

Mercury is conjunct the amazing fixed Star Sirius! This is important because the July 4/5 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse SUN is conjunct Sirius too! What Mercury gleans from Sirius now will be spread widely by the Full Moon, springing from their positive relationship with Uranus, the evolutionary Networker, who unites Humanity for the greatest well being possible! The Sun in Cancer is all for it! Robson say of Mercury conjunct Sirius: ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ Please see more about Sirius in the Full Moon section.

Venus squares Neptune three times during her retrograde cycle. It is a significant aspect because Neptune is activated NINE times during the Venus retrograde cycle! One of the cycle’s most important aspects is the Jupiter conjunct Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter’s RX sextile Neptune! It is July 27, the day of Venus’ last square to Neptune, the day before Venus’ RX cycle ends! It is the goal of the entire cycle! Being an outer planet sextile, it is likely to prevail beyond passing doubts with great promise. But happening three times, those small niggly doubts will be remembered for a while and double checks will be made to be sure progress is better than it was feared it wouldn’t be.

Neptune, in his own sign Pisces, represents a psychic/spiritual dimension beyond average, is the Great Guardian of Spirituality. He is of a very different element, water with no definite form. Gemini, Venus, nor Mercury in Gemini, one of his own signs, are immersed the same way as water, but they are heady in air, logical. Water and air have currents and winds, flow that carries you along their streams, but the view sure is different! At worst Neptune in Pisces is the suffering out of control addict. At best Neptune has empathy, extraordinary visions, does magic and Soul Saving miracles!

Venus is adding her Grace. Neptune hardly notices because he is focused on the intensity of his work. Jupiter in Capricorn sees the special value Neptune offers and give Neptune as much support as possible. Jupiter may publish essential historical documents to record changes and how various decisions were made at any given time. Some of it will be hard despairing news to look at. Some will be hopeful and inspiring as long term changes are finally possible and come true. There will be fumbles and fuming, but Jupiter what is good and best for all. Education will figure in prominently to open people to what could be better ways and show them the benefits. Trust may come quickly or need to be babied along. Do what you can. Keep an open heart; keep empathy handy.

Mars in Pisces recently swam with Neptune, Pisces’ planet, senses the currents, the easiest ways to get where he is going. He is immersing every molecule in the Dream that he may function wholly in its initiation when he gets into Aries, his own sign. In Aries he is the leader, the first responder, consultant, inspires others to take action. If he can do it, they can do it! He will start in Aries June 27 and step up the pace! Mars in Pisces is now leading from behind and within in behalf of the underdog, to help their suffering. He wants us to remember we were once there too. He’s encouraging them to call their formidable talents together to help themselves significantly change this planet.

Mars in Pisces is super sensitive to pivot points that can be used as springboards to areas that need attention to speed progress in a good way. Neptune in his own sign Pisces is a powerful visionary! Music, art, dreams, movies, seeing each other on our cell phones, are all potent ways of seeing, inspiration! Just seeing the sea, ocean sports, ships, seeing the magic of oceanic weather and creatures of the reefs, the depth, not seeing land, gives a broadening perspective that requires a certain faith in the unknowable, unconquerable. We can see further, forever, not know and still continue. Mars can be a silent partner in Pisces, but make no mistake, he is always a leader, even if from behind, no name given. The vision is bigger than any one of us and it will carry itself by its own Spirit!

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are neighboring, only 15 mins apart! June 10 as they made their third from the last semisextile of their 13 yearlong sets of aspects that completes in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

If you use Chiron and Lilith in your interpretations, they make a wild pair. In Aries, Mars’ sign, they have their own power of Leadership. Chiron as healer never promised healing would be easy. In fact, you really have to want to live, to heal and have to step up to the plate. You are not the only person on the planet and at the same time we need you to do your special part. People you don’t even know are counting on you! Lilith says Amen! She can be a tough old bird or a formidable innocent, strong at minimum. She brings women to power that never expected to be there! Some have been so trained to think they aren’t strong it is a shock for them to find out what they can do. What’s even crazier is when they realize they always could have done it!

Cancer is such a deliciously personal sign as well as the sweet neighborhood busybody who looks after everyone.
 
Thank you, Dear Cancers! We are so blessed by you.

Capricorn – Cancer Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse!

Saturday/Sunday July 4 at 9:44 PM Pacific, July 5 Eastern 13 Capricorn/Cancer 38

This is a working Moon activated by the brightest star in the Heavens!

2020 Cancer Mother Moon Woman laying on ground before her

Feeling the July hot Summertime Eclipse, own the night……!

4th of July in Pacific, Mountain and Central, on the 5th in Eastern, but all on the same night! This is the third eclipse this season: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse  Barely perceptible…

Our July Full Moon axis defines a perfect 180° Bowl Chart, Cancer the sign of Bowls! The Full Moon axis is past the Chiron midpoint at 9 Aries. Nevertheless, with Mars now in his own sign activating Chiron, Chiron is still a potent factor in the time frame! Chiron is considered to be the wounded healer/teacher. We learn from our troubles, take a look at our mortality, vow to be a better person and help others, especially children, when we can. Chiron can be great in business, in Aries a leader to new goals and new ways of getting there. Some think Chiron is the number one marriage factor in our charts. Cancer and Capricorn want security, trust and support. Aries is holding the position that your backup Ace is always to be able to support yourself by yourself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The base of the Bowl is Mother Moon in a potent four planet Capricorn Stellium including Jupiter at the same degree as Pluto – just past their June 29 conjunction, and last, Saturn newly returned into his own sign Capricorn July 1! This puts us back into a three outer planet Capricorn stellium until Saturn makes his final entry into Aquarius Dec 16! We are standing in Jupiter/Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter retrograde sextile Neptune July 27 through the third one, October 12, before the Presidential Election. This grouping carries awareness of great responsibilities, takes a hard look at the past, wants a realistic working system. We can learn wisely from the past. Sadly, some we are sorry for. Other we have outgrown, are done with it! Gladly we have hope for building changes together, collaboratively to make important and timely upgrades. Remodeling and sustainability factor strongly. Capricorn is ace at rebuilding better! Some we keep, some we let go and joyfully replace! 
       
Sun in Cancer in its annual conjunction with powerful fixed Star Sirius leads the Bowl, lighting the way. Father Sun in Mother Moon’s Sign is a blend of their energies. Cancer is strengthened, noting where to clear the cobwebs, proud of her successes. She shares her blessings with Sun and his heart expands! Mercury in Cancer is assisting, going back over the ideas that have been deep within, helping to bring them to the surface for updating. Things and people need extra care these days. Sun is generous and Mercury tells the stories that connect us. 

SIRIUS, the Dog Star in the constellation Canis Major is the brightest star in Earth’s Night Sky. The name means “glowing” in Greek. For the Egyptians, Sirius was revered as the Nile Star, or Star of Isis. In mythology the dog Sirius is one of the watchmen, celestial guardians of the Heavens. It is fixed in one place at the bridge of the Milky Way, keeping guard over the abyss into incarnation or in other beliefs, it guarded the dead and guided them to the afterlife. 

  • Space.com:  …the actual Dog Days, or “Canicular” days as they’re known, are defined as the period from July 3 through Aug. 11 when the Dog Star, Sirius, rises in conjunction (or nearly so) with the sun. As a result, the classical Greek and Roman belief was that the combination of the brightest luminary of the day (the sun) and the brightest star of night (Sirius) were responsible for the extreme heat that is experienced during the middle of the northern summer. Other effects, according to the ancients, were droughts, plagues and madness.
     
  • Researcher Elsbeth Ebertin says: ‘Sirius in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. Possibly, the rise in station is made possible by protection from people of influence.’ If you have this Eclipse’s conjunction in good relationship with your chart factors, or have it so in your birth chart, wonderful! See more about it with other factors.

Sun is in Moon’s sign Cancer, warming Cancer’s heart, giving her strength to do all the caring she is want to do, forever and ever. She makes us the best shelter within her means, raises/teaches children – makes sure we get the best education, homeschooling to college, feeds us from body to Spirit, loves us no matter what from sorrows to success! She may be an artist, a skill sharing business person, a community and cultural leader, an advocate for women and children’s rights, volunteering at the local safe house. She makes sure we have good water.

Moon herself is in her opposite sign, Capricorn. She is an excellent community organizer, has an exceptional instinct for business. Capricorn works hard to build what our families and community needs, to gain respect by professional excellence, often has an outstanding reputation. He excels in law and order, dependability. Cancer brings feelings to him, that law is law, humans are human. She shows him how important background is, how to help rather than only categorize and dispense with. Humans need time to learn and time to grow, often to overcome their past. They need to be shown what can be done and how to do it. One who can be costly to us in our communities can become one of our greatest contributors given a chance. Yes, it usually takes time. They are an investment and it is our part to learn how to be an effective teacher, guide.

Venus now direct is semisextile Mercury in Cancer still Retrograde. Mercury is still perusing and turning mental soil about how we feel about the world today and what to do. We have the Virus, civil unrest, environmental discord. Cancer is all about security, nurturing those who suffer for any reason. Our environment is our ultimate home. Taking care of it is a big job. Mercury was sextile Uranus June 5 and 30, will again July 22. Sun also sextiled Uranus the 30th and Moon trined earlier today at 3:19 PM Pacific. Though past, they are all still close, carrying the messages of innovation, humanitarian efforts, the value of networking and philanthropy. Many have new friends, are looking to places in the world family where proven and productive changes have been made.       

Venus never made that sextile with Mars! She turned forward at five Gemini while Mars was still in Pisces and left Mars behind. They have been traveling closely however… They were within 5 degrees of each other when Mars shifted into Aries. July 4 they become 3°, and stay 3° or less through July 21! There is a side by side effect, sharing ideas. Venus gives grace and longing that spurs Mars to action! Venus tells of how heroic Mars is, inspiring people to take his lead!

Venus does sextile Chiron July 10, Mars makes the conjunction to Chiron July 14! In horary astrology this constitutes a connection of all three, Chiron ‘collects’ the light of Venus and Mars. Venus sweetens Chiron’s leadership, enhances his healing and teaching skills with her gracious ways of saying things and brings valued information. She praises him and he takes a greater stride forward! Mars energizes Chiron to stay true to his cause, not be influenced by distractions or payoffs. Mars is a pro at new beginnings and Chiron has to be medically careful with the healing aspect of his work, but new ways are being called for with the Virus, and even with political and police matters. It is important not to be stopped at important junctures of your work or to be ill, injured or disabled yourself. Stay safe and be well. Take care of yourself first that you may serve.

Mercury Rx in Cancer is leaving his July 1 square to Chiron in Aries, retrograding back to square Mars July 8. Mercury shared updated information with Chiron alerting him to current changes in needs and setting new priorities. Cancer is traditional, but a sign quick to make sensible adjustments. Aries can be so full of straight ahead fire that you have to get his attention first, quickly impart your three liner to-the-point info then see how that goes. If needed, check in again to be sure the whole thing got taken in. If it is an emergency, do your best, but be big about it! Mercury will make the third square to Chiron July 21 the day after the second New Moon in Cancer! By then there will be more news to share. Stay progressive.

Mercury in Cancer can seem like drip to Aries who can quickly dodge raindrops, and there could be some heated words. Ask if there is a better time to talk. Even if there is disagreement and a seeming blow off, know that Mars in Aries is hella fast at taking things in, possibly especially if they make him feel to fight, LOL! He loves challenges! So don’t be surprised if you find him doing what you asked when you thought he didn’t hear! Give it a little time… Caring communications, checking in are essential.

Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs less than a degree apart! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10 & 11, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent 13 year aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto are still in close connection since their second conjunction June 29 and will be on through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect leading up to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference. Team up with people who are making a difference. Learn from them.

Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is the most powerful aspect of 2020 after the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Saturn and Capricorn have brought the wrecking ball. Pluto brought the Virus and Jupiter is prejudice, but also outing the truth of the violence of racial injustice. Pluto in Capricorn is the Police, both good and bad, and hired killers. Jupiter often exaggerates conditions in initial situations not much is known about. We keep learning as different perspectives are considered. In Capricorn historical situations and what other governments have done can be profitably compared. Tradition is being reassessed. Old icons are tumbled. Jupiter looks for what works better at less cost. Sustainability is a strong factor now due to environmental concerns. Time to make a clean sweep and build much, much better.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it. Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter RX sextile Neptune Jupiter’s companion aspect to its conjunction with Pluto soothes the waters, yet keeps the dream alive! Jupiter is publishing and that’s the video, Neptune, of George Floyd, a clearly suffering (Neptune) human at the unkindness of bullies. Jupiter can be bullies – opinionated, condescending and prejudiced. A sextile represents an opportunity. Jupiter also wants the truth and Neptune is what’s hidden. Though a very sad circumstance, Mr Floyd becoming a martyr at the cost of his life, good will come from this man giving his life. Neptune is Spirit. Jupiter is Justice. It’s about time for some Spiritual Justice. Worldwide people are rising. Jupiter is retrograding back to meet Neptune again July 27 and will be in close continuous connection through the third aspect Oct 12. This isn’t over yet. And it all will affect the elections. Do your part. Be kind. Above all, help your mates to register and VOTE.

Seek visionary thinkers with sensible long term plans! We can do this!

Capricorn – Cancer Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse Astrology Chart!

Cancer 2020 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse 4th of July

Back to Top


SECOND Cancer New Moon! 

Monday July 20 at 10:33 AM Pacific 28 Cancer 27

Hard work is showing rewards, Venus/Mercury are moving forward, time to move on!

Cancer 2020 Second New Moon Double Moons, Majestic Mountains Clouds!

Some call it a Double New Moon. If there are two New Moons in a month the second is called a Black Moon. Maybe this too, in the same sign, could be called a Black Moon?

We started with the first new Moon at ZERO degrees, totally fresh! It was seriously engaged with Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn. Saturn was retrograde at ZERO degrees Aquarius, about to return to Capricorn, his own sign. They were askew by angle and Saturn was in an unpredictable sign not always comfortable to Moon, the 27 day planet who tends the hearth fires. Yet she herself changes a lot every 27 days, so, in a way, always something new afoot, and both Cancer and Aquarius are community minded.

This second Cancer New Moon is at 28°, very close to the end of Cancer, experienced. Moon and Sun are imminently exactly opposite Saturn now IN his own sign at 28° Capricorn! Moon is in her own sign, so both are potently in their places of power. Cancer is not always considered a ‘powerful’ sign, but personally I wouldn’t mess with her. She can call the tribe and all her ancestors! Sun is right there with her, and he is the Man! Cancer is food, home and family while Capricorn works in the world, provides protection and shelter. He carries the law while Cancer nurtures with feelings. He makes her aware of their responsibilities, the need for children to grow up successfully. Cancer makes him know how people/children are different, have different timing than his. Both are excellent at business. Cap is a hard worker, takes care of necessities. Cancer broods, at times like a broody hen maybe, but has her finger on the pulse of the people! She knows what people need, and when they will want it, the best emphasis for business.  

With Saturn back in his sign Capricorn we again have a 3 Outer Planet Stellium! Jupiter/Pluto are still at the Bowl chart base, still close after their June 29 retrograde conjunction. Saturn will remain in Capricorn until his final change into Aquarius Dec 16. For the moment, all three are retrograde, but Saturn is now within 5° of Pluto putting all three in working distance of each other. Saturn goes back to 25°, traveling closely within 3° of Pluto until they turn forward. Saturn turns Sep 28/29; Pluto turns Oct 4. Saturn travels more quickly and soon leaves Pluto behind. Jupiter, however, has already turned Sep 12 at 17° and quickly catches up with Pluto for their final Nov 12 conjunction! While together the threesome have many similar ideas but tend to work toward them separately until Pluto and Jupiter get close. Then there is a perhaps a surprising merger, unexpected funding tips the scales. Whatever it is, Jupiter will make it famous. It can be very bad or very good, likely both. 

Important matters will continue to include what’s already on the table: learning, careers, healing/vaccine, free speech, laws and enforcement, justice, human rights, sexuality and gender, money and defunding or funding, boycotting harmful people or businesses, finding new ways to long held matters that have needed changing. Please be kind to each other and do what you can in a good way. Step up to the plate. Sometimes we marvel that such a simple solution wasn’t seen before. Just takes one person to say it, but it might have taken a lot of ideas to make that one finally pop up! 

Another Bowl chart!

New Moon, Moon in her own sign Cancer are leading! Mercury is with them in Cancer following along behind, acting as the sweep. His duty is to help other followers, keep the trail clean behind them. There may be joiners that want to know what’s happening and what they can do. Mercury is logical and credible, while in Cancer more personally concerned, combines thoughts and feelings making nurturing connections. The newcomers join in. They become a family of a kind. 

Mercury and Venus are both now moving forward after their double retrograde June 17 to 24. They complete their entire retrograde cycles July 25 and 28 with the Jupiter RX Sextile Neptune, Venus square Neptune right between them on the 27th! Mercury and Venus retrograde sorted and sifted, thought and talked, smelled the roses and baked bread. So much has changed we are all adjusting and it isn’t done. But they moving forward are putting their ideas into action, exploring new ground in today’s world. Working together is comforting and we can all contribute in our own special way. New alliances are being made as we find certain people want more of the same things we want than what we knew about them before. Circumstances have leveled the playing field and we have the blessing of more mutual goals.  

Jupiter RX Sextile Neptune and Venus square Neptune are making the vision of major planetary changes apparent to many. It will be how we treat our Earth and her beings, including each other. Jupiter wants the whole TRUTH, draws deep from Neptune’s dreams, the fathomless well of Spirit. There are lies, scams, prejudice, judgments, but many will be revealed. Jupiter ultimately wants the long term best for all. This is a time to teach through parables. We can’t all be there, but a well told story makes us feel like we are. Venus is questioning the dream, picks out what she deems worthy. She knows how to ‘dress up’ ideas that at first may appear unpalatable or impossible. She gleans important points that many overlook. That’s one of her special graces. She gets to know people through her appreciation of them and so much more is revealed. Even if you don’t understand, you can appreciate someone’s effort. See also the Full Moon’s last paragraph above.

As with the Full Moon, though still close, Venus never made that sextile with Mars! She turned forward at five Gemini while Mars was still in Pisces and left Mars behind. They have been traveling closely however… They were within 5 degrees of each other when Mars shifted into Aries. July 4th they became within 3°, and stay 3° or less through July 21! They exchanged glances, there was a side by side effect, sharing ideas, but they didn’t collaborate. Venus gives grace and spurs Mars to action! Venus tells of how heroic Mars is, inspiring people to take his lead! Mars liked her, so he is sad to see her go even though he’s very independent.

Mercury does square Mars now and exactly on the Jupiter sextile Neptune the 27th. Mars is now in his own sign Aries! Impatience is likely. Mercury may be going about grumbling under his breath. He tries to be nurturing in Cancer, but Mars may be too pushy or too personal too quick. Mars may prod relentlessly, noisily. He wants new now, but Cancer is traditional. My Mother always did it that way. He likely means well, but Cancer is a more tender sort. She may be looking for security and she intuitively knows he can be gone in a minute to an enticing new opportunity. Mercury may be a little confused at some news and not in the mood, tired and worried, yet has to deal with events as they come. There could be an accident, an upset tummy. Mars just wants to get going! He thinks Cancers just need to make up their mind and get over it! Well, that could be true, but there is a human in there doing the best they can. Take it easy – you don’t want to have words. If you push too hard you may lose their friendship forever.

So Mercury, get your rest, talk when you feel up to par. Mars, just know everyone isn’t like you. You are terrific, but we are all here together. If you are saving a life, then do what you do. Mercury, appreciate what a leader this person is. Hear them out, then per the time frame available, let them know where you stand. Your intuition will serve you precisely for the circumstances at that time. Things can change later. You can too if that’s your choice. Mars, keep standing tall and proud! We couldn’t do it without you!

Mercury is about to sextile Uranus and square Chiron for the third of three times! Sextile Uranus is good connections with friends, such great strange but genius ideas! Good Sci Fi! Square Chiron, it may not sell right away, if ever. Oh well, it was fun. Or, unapologetically write it and keep writing. Get past the business hurdles. Save and keep each version as you go. What doesn’t fit here may be the lead for a second episode, be part of a series, or stand well alone on its own! Give it some time. Work out any publishing problems. The retrogrades undoubtedly brought some new options! Check in with friends, face your business/employment/financial security matters. Check in with proven advisors. Develop a more sustainable outlook about your future. The world is changing as we speak. Some old ways are being rooted out, some new ones are having growing pains. Goes with the territory. Smart networking makes a huge difference. We can put our heads together ~ as they say, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts!

The continuing Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs less than a degree apart! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10 & 11, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent 13 year aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

This concludes the Saga of the Three Cancer 2020 Lunar Events! Read them carefully, note their differences and the underlying ongoing aspects they ride on. Set your long term goals, then fill in with the steps you will be taking to complete or sustain your Mission.  

Good luck, be safe and be well. Thank you for your good work.

Sagittarius New Moon! 

Tuesday November 26 New Moon at 7:06 AM Pacific, 4 Sagittarius 03 

Six months 4 degree sequence! Tightly networked chart is going places! 

Sagittarius 2019 New Moon Milky Way Geminids Chale UK Jamie Russell

Traveling has its advantages! Milky Way, Geminid Meteors & Andromeda Galaxy by Jamie Russell This pic was taken from Chale on the Isle of Wight in the UK. I saw hardly any meteors through the evening but as I drove along this road I saw one come down in front of me, so I pulled over in the car and set up my camera.

2019 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2020 Jan, Feb, Mar New Moons are all at 4 degrees, a SIX months sequence! The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap, AQ and Pisces. All these Moons are sequentially resonant to each other! If you have factors at 4 degrees or very close to that, let’s say up to 2 to 3 degrees, in your astrology chart, they will be activated over and over. Each Moon being in a different Sign, your chart will be activated from different angles each time, some more favorably than others. Plan out those 6 months with a goal in mind. Be prepared, do things favorable at each Moon Sign! Check out my write-ups, and those particular Moon write-ups online to get perspective. 

This is the first lunar event following Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center Nov 19, the last of the profound set of aspects in Scorpio! The Galactic Center conjunction was in in Sagittarius and so is this New Moon. The frequency is the same. Things that didn’t seem to happen, or were not understood due to Mercury Retrograde in Station, may come to be known now. New Moons go deep in the dark, and revelation is common. Surrender to quiet, perhaps solitude, open your Spirit. See if there is a follow-up transmission. If you are doing a Sagly trek or exploration, you may intuit a new Path that couldn’t be seen for the distracting clamoring of daylight’s bright Sun. The New Moon will occur at different times of day worldwide. In Pacific time it will start our day at 7:06 AM. Let the Moon/Sun merger give you a potent hint and a great send off!

Though Jupiter isn’t in Capricorn yet, will be Dec 2, it is already square Chiron in Aries. It will be exact Dec 8. While in Sagittarius it will be scouting, confirming, finishing its programs, roving widely as possible to get the last bits of learning that will make a difference, especially in healing! It is excited about the new potentials. When it gets into Capricorn there will be an adjustment period first, then into a leaning forward mode to get things done! And Sagittarius can lean into things, LOL. In Capricorn, the horse will be focused and powerful. Capricorn will be slightly taken aback by the whirlwind of activity, but Cappie is the grand master of organization and getting to the heart of matters! Now, Aries isn’t so happy if they try to push him around. Chiron is the old shamanic master, and in Aries can let go the arsenal if he feels it’s necessary. You can threaten him with the law, but he was the one that saved you and you owe him a debt, so have a little respect, ha, ha! Things will even out given a little time. Chiron is always looking for what’s new and he’s faster than slick in Aries. Give him some parameters then let him go for it! Do the research using his ancient healing techniques but in a new way!

Moon and Sun are at the same degree as Mars in Scorpio now behind them. Some secrets may come to Light due to the telling actions Mars takes. He doesn’t tell, but he acts as if…leading you to further action in behalf of Justice. Mars may inspire a story to be told, a teaching to be addressed. This one is more fact, Mars having lived it or known the one who did, than fiction. He may know where the funding came from, the motives that hadn’t previously been known. He may hold the key to the source of healing, the cause behind the symptoms. He might create the link required to make a great network in behalf of a super cause. And he’s super sexy charismatic, so don’t be surprised if there are a few groupies who tag along!

Venus in Capricorn is sextile Mars. Mars may be headstrong, but she holds the reigns gently and he responds so not to harm her. She seems wise before her time, so he listens to her too. She puts attainable beauty before him and he is touched to be included. What could have seemed like being alone, the guardian at the gates as always, Mars is invited in, treated honorably, with appreciation and affection. She might be his boss, but she knows how to use him in a good way, keeping in mind what he can do and wants, so he doesn’t mind and they are joyfully productive. Their product is a success!

Moon and Sun have just left an oblique connection with Uranus the planet of networking. They saw that part of the network has been stabilized; part of it is still loose and unpredictable. Uranus in Taurus is trying to simplify and develop the gaps with sincere advocates. Uranus, the futurist, is aware of what can be crisis circumstances that we will have to act on immediately to avoid consequences of magnitude for our Earth and her people. Sagittarius has been prompted to get the word out with illustrations, comparisons. They are the very ones that can give the perspective needed, the wakeup call to action.

Mars just felt the Uranus electric sizzle across the land and found himself a little more lively, willing to take a bigger chance. Mars in Scorpio has intense knowledge, strength and courage, so may be pleased for the update, secretly happily scared and shocked! It’s thrilling to find a new challenge that simply can’t be dismissed out of hand! Since Uranus is in self preservationist Taurus, Mars feels it is a safe bet, so proceeds. Mars likes working alone though may have a silent partner. Uranus can do alone or large networks. With this encounter, Mars knows there is help if he needs it. There are plenty of options to consult about if he needs to sort out what his next step will be. This in turn is all being translated to Moon and Sun. Sagittarius loves new adventures and will be faithful carrying out Mars’ suggestions!

Mercury, still in Scorpio, is now well beyond the retrograde, but is still finishing the third, the finishing phase of it’s cycle until Dec 7. There is a continuing contemplation of what is a keeper from the Scorpio events, and what needs to be cleared from our consciousness. When things are cleared, is the space cleansed and maintained for the next arrival in our awareness? Keep it clear. It’s ok to have vacancy waiting for tenancy. Mercury is curious and feels a little odd in this condition, but it is one of the talents of the business of doing thinking.

Mercury is trine Neptune in Pisces, his own sign. Mercury in Scorpio is both logical and intuitive about financial affairs, behind the scenes liaisons, relationships. Mercury has discretion, knows when someone is in need, maybe dire need but the person doesn’t know it himself, or he masks it and others aren’t concerned yet. Mercury has a potent capacity to help this situation. Many times there are things we can’t do only by ourselves and if Mercury calls it, you all get going right now. This is a season when help is often needed. Be kind to each other, even if you are hurting yourself, even if you don’t like that person. There can be a lot going on that you don’t know about. With Neptune that ability for Mercury to ‘see,’ is ever so more potent. It can be used to make a spiritual choice, to make art that touches your Soul, make music that is so charismatic in the spiritual sense you find yourself with tears running down your cheeks and you didn’t know you were crying. It may be time to realize after all these years to forgive, to release, give profound gratitude. There but for the Grace of God go I….

Mercury in Scorpio will then sextile Saturn is his own sign Capricorn. And Saturn is next to Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. Saturn/Capricorn are both a planet and sign of submission and achievement. When we accept the terms of our Soul’s purpose, our dedication becomes 100% without really even thinking about it. Yet it may be time for Mercury to sound the call. We try to keep secrets from ourselves, but that creates a divine itch, LOL! Once Saturn gets to work, things fly! Saturn is precise, doesn’t waste time or materials. Mercury in Scorpio thrives in this intense, busy atmosphere, scurrying around carrying messages, making orders, gets great deals, even funding if needed! Remarkable! Believe me, they will be ready for the Jan 12 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto!

Jupiter and Venus have what we call an ‘out of sign’ conjunction in neighboring signs. They are lucky and sweet together. Jupiter is still in his own sign Sagittarius, but Dec 2 goes into Capricorn. This is his last lunar event in Sagittarius for 12 years to come! Venus is just into Capricorn, sweetening the way. In these final days, Jupiter is putting finishing touches on his travel reminiscences, the project currently afoot, any last minute publishing, teaching students what he feels what is most important before going into their new year and Jupiter’s new sign. Venus is helping him make sufficient plans to make the transition, sign up for what will help him be in the right place at the right time, make connections with experienced colleagues and people in charge who will make it a smooth transition. They will cheer him, welcome him and be glad for his arrival! With Jupiter’s arrival there will no longer be three outer planets in their own signs. Instead, there will then be three outer planets in Capricorn, and with Venus there too, four in Capricorn!

Venus is also trine Uranus in those strong Earth signs! Things will fairly glide into place, make the winning gravelly skid to home plate! Jupiter can either arrive on his own, a loner genius, or he will arrive into a group of co-workers united in purpose to make change. There can be a cooperative collective ready to do business. Could be humanitarian work, environmental purpose, research for all manner of matters including heavenly scents! Venus is looking for the Blessing Way. She gives her gifts of beauty, graces the order, heightens awareness of the value of their projects, calls for timeliness all can accept.

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along in their semisextile. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey together in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 


More about the Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16  & 18 2019 Jupiter then Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The eleven months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects finished Nov 8, led up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 was Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs into Aquarius! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn prepped with demolition, Jupiter will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Pluto is now at 21 Capricorn, very close to the 22/23 degree events

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet Capricorn stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential Election because they are precisely astrologically linked to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees have been and/or will be connected to these world events. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective, grow. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Thank you, Sagittarians, for keeping our perspective during the years long chain of events we are having. It is being quite a Journey!

Gemini – Sagittarius Full Cold Moon! 

December 11 at 9:12 PM Pacific, eastern zone on the 12th, Wednesday/Thursday, 19 Gemini/Sagittarius 52

Caution and Optimism! Four planet Capricorn Stellium – Saturn, Venus, Pluto Sequence!

Sagittarius 2019 Full Moon 'Rainbow' Arc

It’s just like Sagittarius to have a ‘rainbow,’ the spiritual arrow’s arc, over his Full Moon mate in Gemini!

Scorpio held powerful events during Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio! The Transit of Mercury was during the stand-still station of Mercury. The Full Moon was the next day, spreading its wings wide open, Taurus grounding, Scorpio taking it all in deeply. Nov 19 brought Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center. They were/are part of an amazing sequence that started Oct 2018 and continues through the 2020 Presidential Election. This Full Moon will carry the information, teachings to siblings, neighbors, the ‘hood – Gemini. In Sagittarius it spreads the seeds while traveling to the ends of the earth! 

Jupiter is in Capricorn now! Jupiter is the Sagittarian planet. Jupiter is no longer in his own sign, but now, in his neighboring sign. They will combine their talents. There will be formidable propositions and plans to carry through. Jupiter widens Capricorn eyes and Capricorn gets the team working full steam! There will be grand accomplishments! Jupiter makes it a four planet stellium in Capricorn!

This is the last Full Moon of the DECADE, and this year before Winter Solstice, for some the true New Year. Due to astronomical phenomena, this will be a dusk till dawn Full Moon! In a manner of speaking, Mother Moon takes on the position of Father Sun on a long winter night. The emphasis of Gemini/Sagittarius is thoughtfulness, how you communicate. The holidays usually bring family stresses. More than ever it’s not what you say but when and how you say it. Gemini and Sag love to share, but please be considerate. Is this a good time to chat? Their main purpose is to spread the good word. Go gently when you know there are differences. No marathons so we get tired. Do stop to listen and receive your own share too! Listening is the other half of communication. Thank the other person and tell them you will be thinking about what they said. Honor them as you would like to be honored.

Gemini Moon gathers data, learns the languages; Sun in Sagittarius distributes it in full meaning with ideas for the best direction to take! What was thought to be a bunch of facts and figures becomes a purpose! There are big results the dreamers have been waiting for! 

The Full Moon has a lot of connections! The 19 degree Full Moon is exactly connected with a Saturn sequence in Capricorn! Saturn is at 19, Venus at 20, Pluto at 21! It is separating from a Neptune T Square. Mars is now exactly trine Neptune and sextiles the Capricorn sequence!

  • The Full Moon axis has left Neptune by four degrees, but they are still entranced by his ideas, insights, observations, dreams and visions. Some were personal, some were planetary. Consciousness is changing at a rapid rate now with climate shifts, political, economic, human rights matters including mass shootings done by children. Empathy, compassion and mercy or what? How do we find the words, tell the story, make changes that work? Gemini and Sagittarius are at a crossroads of humanity trying to find the way. People are facing their very Souls with environmental dangers and safety for their children and loved ones.

  • Mars is mid Scorpio on his feet. He feels Neptune’s urgency to clear a path through fears, desperation, hate, grief, confusion. Scorpio is a sign of purification, the Phoenix rising from his own ashes that we may die to life. Mars is fearless and in Scorpio either a menace or a shamanic first responder! If you need help, go see this healer to cauterize your wounds of the past and move on. We need your skills now. Mars in Scorpio may work silently, from behind, within, but has a potency of leadership nonetheless. Coupled with Neptune’s psychic guidance, they don’t miss the mark.

  • Adding to this is Mars sextile Saturn, Venus and Pluto in Capricorn! Mars sometimes butts heads with Capricorn orders and rules, but they are in compatible signs, and Mars’ sign Scorpio’s planet Pluto is there too. They can do this. There is nothing silly about Mars in Scorpio, and Saturn/Capricorn want precision and results. They all agree. Venus adds her sense of attraction to Scorpio/Pluto’s charisma. They do things nobody else could ever do! She glides right through the center and others go right after her, trusting her innate ability to assess value. She’s quite the appraiser! Time is of the essence to save things that cannot be replaced or to restore before forgotten. This is an extremely intense combination. Just what we need!

  • Moon is inconjunct, oblique with Saturn. She is a nurturer and sees when he is beyond tired. Venus has been leading Saturn on over the last thresholds, grooming him for the work still needing to be done before the Jan 12, 2020 conjunction with Pluto. Success, achievements hard won, are exhilarating! Along the way it is important to take time out so there is no burnout. Mind yourself – get reasonable exercise, rest. Let Mother Moon bring good quality food and water. Take care of each other when you notice one of the team is lagging. Get away for a bit, talk with some people not in the fray!  

  • Sun was semisextile Saturn, but is now closer to Venus. Sun adds his light and warmth while the others work on tough projects, at times seeming like there is little gratitude. So many don’t want, or don’t know about what they are doing and it seems like they are working out in the cold. Sun’s recognition of the great effort they are making is very welcome. Sagittarius, and Jupiter, Sag’s planet now in Capricorn are cheering them on at the crescendo of the preparatory work they are steadfastly attending. It’s short time now to Jan 12.

  • Venus with Pluto! It’s a work party or a lovers tryst at work. Be careful to do the right thing, LOL! If you both are innocent, just don’t get caught. Venus and Pluto both love lots of money. Venus might buy, buy, buy, or invest every cent and do very well, especially with Pluto as her guide to the inside news! Pluto may be delighted by connecting with her or see that she is out for herself. She can be greedy or have the Grace of love, beauty, kindness. Get to know her first. And same words for her about Pluto – get to know him first. Try not to elope. Her recent visit with Saturn may keep her honorable and there may be some karmic affinity. Also she may be inspired to fund the project when she sees Saturn’s sincerity and dedication. Saturn with Pluto can be remarkably successful financially or make a worst mistake and drain the coffers to bankruptcy. This might be one of those times ‘When in doubt, don’t’ or invest only a little to test the waters over some time to let it prove itself. Venus may somehow save the day with an offhand remark.

Mercury in Sagittarius is now at the exact degree the New Moon was at on Nov 25! If you have New Moon memories, this reminder may be perfectly timed. Renew your connections, get more information to do your plans. Mercury has been obliquely connected with Uranus in Taurus. Mercury becomes aware of some pertinent changes that will make a long term difference. they could be exotic, unheard of, yet make admirable good sense! Let some friends go; move along and make some new connections. Surprises are in the offing.

Jupiter, the Sagittarius planet, made that square with Chiron in Aries Dec 8! This being only 3 days later, Moon and Sun are still mulling things over, scrambling to get things back in working order, incorporating the new plans. The potential has expanded, again! Going to be better than before. It’s possible new discoveries have been made or being on the leading edge, we are on the brink! Suspense is lovely! See more with the New Moon! See about the Square!

Full Cold Moon!

Beautiful bright night, Dec 21 Winter Solstice is followed by the Dec 22 Full Cold Moon 9:49 AM Pacific at 0 Cancer/Capricorn 49! 

Traditional Cancer/Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune, Saturn Sextile Neptune!

2018 Cancer Capricorn Full Cold Moon Star Heavens Solstice

Star of wonder, Star of night, Star with royal beauty bright
Homeward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to Thy perfect Light

Winter Solstice is the darkest longest night, a night of new beginnings as each day after gets a little longer and the Light comes back. The very next day the Full Cold Moon is a new beginning too at ZERO Capricorn/Cancer. Mother Moon is feeling quite comfy in her own Sign Cancer. She’s keeping the home fires burning, might be making gingerbread cookies and tasty eggnog! Cappie makes sure the firewood is in and the long night doesn’t seem so long. Lots of love, feeling safe to think about the New Year to come. Yule gifts are so appreciated, and support our most meaningful choices. 

Children will be coming home, families will be gathering, elders and friends are visited or join us. Some will be sorely missed, not with us on this plane anymore. Bless their souls and comfort us. Schooling and our work, businesses will be discussed. Take time out to walk alone for a while each day, to recenter in your own being, to bring back gentle kindness. Allow primary differences to coexist. Capricorn and Cancer are both staunch protectors of tradition, but let yourself also allow for creativity to spark fires we never knew burned within us! Say, I’ll think about it, and give it some time. Things have a way of working out. Respect the elders and respect the youngers. Love it up! 

There are few ‘active’ aspects in the Full Moon chart. That means the majority of aspects, planetary connections have already happened, our job is to carry them forward. The active aspects haven’t completed yet, are still being addressed.

Past Aspects

In the last three days, Sun in Sagittarius squared Chiron in Pisces, trined Uranus. Sun tried to trick Chiron a bit, help him heal a little faster, give him some business tips from other cultures business styles, even could have tried to offer him some imports to sell, or to get him to export something special he produced. They could have easily disagreed over ethics, the ‘truth,’ or beliefs. Things might have gotten a bit tangled. But the trine with Uranus, a more flowing aspect, brought them back to friendship and it became more about how fun it could be to surprise everyone else! Off they went together!

Venus in Scorpio just brought her sweetie Neptune his favorite chocolates. Chocolate vitamins are the best! He sings her favorite fairy tales. He tells her mythic stories of lovers who saved each other, so eloquent they will never be forgotten. She shares some of her secrets knowing they will be safe with him. That means a lot and he is touched. She is so charismatic even the old man of the sea is swayed by her powerful Grace. He feels her deep caring and healing. The loss of loved ones is lessened. They both understand spiritual matters, the essence of Soul. At the end of the day, together they rock the baby and soon everyone is asleep, dreaming with the Angels.

Mars, feeling his way along in Pisces, made a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. Mars’ intuition and surprising strength of character may have impressed Pluto. He could have gotten hired for the holidays and the job be kept afterwards. Mars may have secretly inspired Pluto to be a little more tender using his own strengths. Pluto in Capricorn, more financially inclined, may modify some of his intentions, be reminded of his integrity, and acknowledge more of his spirituality. 
 
Upcoming Aspects

Jupiter and Saturn The two most important aspects of the chart are the two most important of 2019, active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted and his exaggerated tales make your howl with laughter. Who cares if you believe it or not?! Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury, right in front of Jupiter, squares Neptune too! Due to the retrograde it happens Mercury squares Neptune at this Full Moon too, at the SAME degree, 10 Sagittarius! Mercury is generally is a fast mover, makes a quicky square. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Neptune too can go any which way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Practical matters: With this square, confusion is common, getting lost happens, lost luggage may never be seen again. Think carefully what you want to take with you. Since Mercury and Jupiter are so optimistic in Sagittarius, wait to sign papers. Being trusting, they may overlook important words or the lack of them. It may be innocent, naive, or an out and out scam! Mercury may clarify what Jupiter is hoping for, but may also exaggerate and overwhelm Neptune who only ever wanted a quiet life behind the scenes. Either you have to jump in and grab Neptune before he retreats, or gentle down your approach so he doesn’t shut down right before your eyes. Tell the truth or not, but if you do, do it very kindly. The lot of you might get in some funny or not so funny trouble. Try to leave drugs/alcohol out of it. Being too smart or arrogant may not play so well. So just go to the concert instead?! Mercury makes the exact square Monday the 24th at 4:33 PM. Caution Fri/Sat/Sun nights, drive carefully Monday afternoon. No dares, no races, no bets. Be safe.

Mars is trining Moon’s North Node. The North Node is spanning the Full Moon axis, with the North Node in Moon’s own sign Cancer, the South in Capricorn. The nodes work for balance between old, what used to be, the South Node, and what’s needed now, the North Node. These signs are classic, the vertical axis of the natural astrological chart. North is at the bottom of the chart, South is at the top. The Bottom is at home, with Mother and children, while the top is Father out in the world making wages, establishing the family’s reputation. Mars in Pisces is sensitively offering new ideas. He could be so subtle that Cancer never realizes what was said in passing conversation was so important. Pay attention to what the new person in the group is about or is saying. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see many facets that need to be harmonized. Cancer and Capricorn want the best for their children, the generations. Likely, environmental matters – extremes of weather, clean air and water, good soil for food, housing, will be important to them, as well as medicine and education. They are what we astrologers call Cardinal signs, the ones who get things moving. They stand strong for fundamental truths.

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

In respect and full honor, Blessed be…

Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Saturday January 5, 2019 at 5:28 PM Pacific, 15 Capricorn 25. 

Solar Eclipse, 5 Planet Capricorn Stellium, Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune!

Capricorn 2019 New Moon Milky Way Monument Valley AZ John Vermette

Happy New Year! First Lunar event of 2019! First Eclipse of 2019! First of three 5 Planet Stelliums of 2019! The Eclipse is the important lunar event before 2019’s First two outer planet aspects, Jupiter square and Saturn sextile Neptune Jan 13 and 31st (reversed numbers – 13/31!)!

Mercury, Saturn, Moon & Sun, and Pluto, all in Capricorn, are celebrating the start of 2019! The second 5 Planet Stellium is in Virgo, the third is in Capricorn again at the end of 2019.

In the Stellium….

Mercury is strong and hard working in Capricorn, getting the word out on the New Year Agenda. He wants a commitment, how much and when, by whom. He is coming up from behind the Capricorn group, will first confer with Saturn to get the top priorities, the latest news.

Mercury is square Mars. In Capricorn, likely Mercury is shaking his finger at Mars, saying slow down! Mars in Aries wasn’t born to slow down! He’s frisky as hell and loving scaring everyone around! He’s leading the way and no one’s going to stop him! New territory always has that fresh feel, goes right to his head! Mercury will have but a few moments to catch his attention, so get to the point and don’t make it sound like an order, LOL. See how you can help him, not hinder him! Could try a little reverse psychology, or dare him though… Mercury will square him exactly at 2:04 AM Pacific the 8th, so the 7th is the day it peaks. Mars could trip Mercury up, take up his time, yell at him, be annoying, be of no help at all, and not even listen. Mars himself could fall or need help and there goes Mercury’s plans for the day. Ok. Be careful, do the best you can.    

Saturn is in his own sign, and his responsibilities almost seem to have doubled, though Capricorns are tough and determined. He will find a way. Likely he’s the boss and can get some help, just needs to keep tabs on the crew and the project on track. If he’s a new year father, he’s probably as proud as burst buttons, and a wee bit tired too. Parents and elders may figure in strongly.

Jupiter & Saturn Jupiter is not in the stellium but forms the first of the two most important aspects in the chart, the two most important of 2019! They are active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect Jan 13 is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is aiming to rev up the motors, expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his cheerful intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. This is a rather friendly square. Neither one minds a little fascinating random chaos. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of that chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function. Not bad.

Moon & Sun are sporting the first Eclipse of 2019, a Solar Eclipse! This pup is a partial, visible in Asia and the western Pacific. Not our turn. New Moons always seem quiet because the night is dark, but together in the heavens, they are in recharge mode! Moon is getting infused by Sun’s Light! She is the liaison between Sun and Earth, us! This time they are exactly lined up with us, so expect some surprising Capricorn potency! Did you take that responsibility you said you would? Are you clear about your commitments? Are you keeping your calendar up to date? Moon rules our everyday life, taking care of the kids, food, giving us hugs. But she also collects and remembers as she goes throughout our community, so let’s Sun know what’s needed. She soothes his fiery Spirit, encourages him to stay Bright. She gets tired, Sun knows, so he burns away her worries, makes her secretly feel like the Mother of all Amazons! She winks, gives him a cute little curtsy, and she’s back to work. Who would have ever known that happened?  

Moon is in Capricorn, her opposite sign, so she acts like a liaison from her natural sign Cancer to Capricorn as well! Sun shines forever, rather impervious, and Capricorn, utterly dedicated, has no time for chit chat. Plus, Cap is the citadel protecting Sun. This conjoining with the Moon is likely the most receptive he will be. Moon is very sensitive; she syncs up with him. He knows her sincere caring and listens well, cherishes her insights. 

The New Moon has just sextiled Neptune, gathering in masses of perception. They are separating the wheat from the chaff that will help Saturn make his decisions when he sextiles Neptune. Sun is putting the light on what glows; Moon sings a little song of her own making when she likes a special little bit. Saturn is already very close to the sextile, only just over 2 degrees to go, so the process is in full bore.

Pluto is the most powerful, the last planet in Capricorn. Moon will feel her way by him 4:12 AM Pacific the next morning. She is fresh from the Sun, looks into some of the dark places, spreads a little Light in the key core places, gives him a hug. She listens to Pluto’s hum. He tells her what to be careful about, shoots her a little healing and on she goes. Sun himself gets there 3:36 AM Pacific on the 11th. That can be one of the most wealthy combinations in the zodiac! It can be major healing or transitioning right out of this life. Relationships are crucial. Do the right thing. Mercury makes the connection 12:01 PM Pacific the 18th. Believe me, it will be a crazy day for some. Wild things open the doors and Mercury will be there to take a look, OMG! That info will be recorded and passed along, possibly quite carefully. Could be wiser to observe and hold for later. If it’s revelation time, then go with it, but stay safe. All these connections will have root resonance in the Eclipse. Take some time that day to think what outcomes you would like and keep that in mind as you make your decisions.

Saturn closes to less than 3 degrees of Pluto when Saturn retrogrades, turns back, April 29, 2019. They don’t conjunct until January 12, 2020! That will be a heck of a time! The conjunction occurs in another Capricorn 5 Planet Stellium. Jupiter stands alone, but Sun, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury, 4 planets, are ALL WITHIN 3 DEGREES of each other! Since Pluto has been in Capricorn for some time, having Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, there too will certainly amplify the Capricorn factor. Saturn, the Builder, wants to make sure Pluto achieves his goals! Pluto might take the troublemakers down, could be a major power play, take over! Financially it could be our worst fears, depression like circumstances. Gird your loins! Saturn/Capricorn might bring the law and Pluto doesn’t get away with it anymore. Saturn with Pluto happens on average every 34 years. It will have prime significance to the 2020 Presidential election. 

Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, classically has to do with money, inheritances, mortgages, taxes, insurance, bankruptcy, funding, lifelong love/cheating, intimacy and sexuality, obsessions, murder/rape, medical research/healing – extremes. Vitally it has to do with toxins/poisons/sewage and clean water – purification. Capricorn/Saturn is one’s life work, community reputation, fathering/mentoring, elderhood. It is the Builder/architect, timing, being a realist, Law and Science, sustainability – exemplary wise use of resources, composers, the CEO or doing as you are told. 

So many important things are on the table. Call in your experts, get educated, share and learn, VOTE, encourage others to vote! Support leaders for change that affects us for the better, long term sustainability for our children. What we do now makes a difference to the 2020 outcome, and that to the future beyond.

Venus in Scorpio Outside the Stellium!

At the Full Moon Venus was sweet on Neptune. Now she has just been loving on Chiron. From the DreamMaker to the the Shaman. She brings Neptune’s spiritual impressions that Chiron may apply the latest ones to his healing work. It’s a smooth transference because they are both in Pisces. Chiron can be good in partnerships and business. Venus in Scorpio introduces valuable connections both for love and money! She sees what will bring the most rewards, has added her touch of beauty and class, charisma, and lots of love. Makes a difference. 

Venus will inconjunct, obliquely connect with, Uranus in Aries. They are so very different. Venus wants a personal connection; Uranus in Aries is looking far ahead, single handedly at times, rarely even wants a personal connection. She may catch a glimpse of what he sees, but she will likely remain on her track. Scorpio has power from within. Uranus has power from humanity. She could do fundraising for his amazing cause. His tribe could become her tribe, but the connection with him personally isn’t likely no matter how fascinating he is, and few catch her eye. But with or without him, she will find herself wondering about the road less traveled. She’s no wimp and Scorpio, though can be the deepest of partners, also likes being perfectly alone. Don’t be surprised if you find her at an unexpected place happily all by herself. On her new motorcycle.

Stretch your Spirit in every direction. Laugh with the Capricorn Wizard! S/he’ll take you there!

Full Thunder/Hay TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

Longest Eclipse of 21st Century, Uranian T Square, Saturn Fate & Wisdom! Jupiter/Neptune, Venus Love, and….Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde!

Friday July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

Magnificent TOTAL Lunar Eclipse Sept 27, 2015 taken from California​ by Alfredo Garcia Jr

The Full Moon is a TOTAL Lunar ECLIPSE July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45. It will be seen in a vast area, but, sorry, not in the US. However! It will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100), a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes! Happy viewing to those of you who get to see it! Time to get tickets to the place with the best weather!

Why? Per EarthSky: In 2018, the July full moon and July lunar apogee – the moon’s most distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit – both fall on the same date: July 27, 2018. Therefore, the July 2018 full moon showcases the most distant and smallest full moon of the year. Sometimes called an apogean full moon (or micro-moon or mini-moon), this smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth’s shadow than does a full moon that’s closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit. That’s why a full moon at or near lunar apogee adds to the duration of a total lunar eclipse.​

As a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Moon will not be dark, she will be a bright living red/orange! The connection is maximum, perfect alignment. If you were at the places on Earth it is visible, right on the central Eclipse path, even more so. But for those of us other places, it still has immense potency. This is our second Eclipse of three this summer. People have been asking me if they should meditate or party. Both, of course! Get out there and feel it! BE with it, BE it! Sit with it. Give gratitude for the good. Ask reverently for connection with the greater beings. Listen with your body, mind and Spirit. Send requests to be a better emissary, for the greater good of Humanity.

Shake it! Thunder is like that drum roll when Leo walks on stage, only bigger! It’s a celebration! With all that sunlight, the hay dries in the fields and gives the golden glow Leo’s love! Mama Moon is over opposite in Aquarius bringing all her friends to see this extraordinary performance. Aquarians are hard to impress, so it must be way better than average to get those excellent reviews. If nothing else, Leos give it their sincere best! They aim to please!

Fixed T Square! A couple days ago Sun squared Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Sun didn’t know whether to blink or bolt or just take it in! Thunder is one thing, lightning another! The Gods do talk and write the lightning script! You may have left some friends behind, or they pushed you forward against the odds! Moon is in Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! She can be shy, but less so in Aquarius. He understands lunacy, foibles. And Moon just crossed rowdy and randy Mars 2, 3 hours ago! She was revolutionary and unruly, wherever they were, with no apology! Possibly impatient and grumpy too. A little scared, but took an uncommon chance, and she’s not going back! Sun saw the whole thing, and wonders if he will ever see her again. She certainly won’t be the same when he sees her next! What’s astonishing is all these are fixed signs – Aquarius, (Uranus in) Taurus, and Leo! But this combo, a T Square, is challenging. Aquarius and Uranus are change makers – the only constant is change! Uranus is at the point of the T!​ Leo will stand his ground, is heroic, but he does react to the challenge, and changes to make the most of it all! In steadfast fashion, he prevails! Steady in the Light.

Sun trined Chiron 2+ days ago, while Moon sextiled only about 4 hours ago! Chiron is a great one to consult with about business, partnerships – both biz and pleasure, health and teaching! Chiron tied Moon and Sun together and now they can express what he had to show them as Mars makes his upcoming sextile with Chiron. Mars in AQ is uncommonly fast, and Chiron is in Mars’ sign Aries. Whatever they do, it will be done PDQ, pretty darn quick! Chiron in Aries has a hella lot of spunk, so Moon and Sun were some surprised, and plenty excited to try these special new ideas! We all may find ourselves taking a more potent stand for matters that concern us.

SIX planets are at 2, 3, and 4 degrees! They all have and are interacting with Saturn, the planet of Dharma, now at 3 Capricorn, in his own sign! Sun just checked in for an assessment. Saturn will almost make the trine again with Uranus, but not quite. But Saturn remembers he doesn’t have time to hang out with all his old friends, times have changed. Now it’s important to focus on the current job, the cause at hand. Mars, in next sign Aquarius, is semisextile. He gives Saturn the elbow in the ribs and reminds Saturn global wide important matters are at hand. Mars will help lead him beyond Capricorn’s usual boundaries safely, and right now! Moon was there and she agrees with Mars, helps bring women into more potent roles. Mars and Moon sextiled Chiron and he has lent his support! Get going, make it possible! Saturn will also almost square Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign! Old worries come back to gnaw at us, but we have learned more and know what to do. If it requires attention, take care of it now and keep your life moving!

Change is inevitable, but it comes in smaller and bigger doses! Our Lunar Eclipse and the Aug 11 Solar Eclipse happen during the Mercury/Mars Double Retrograde! Mercury Rxs July 25, just two days ago, so it is what we call ‘in Station.’ At the time a planet turns direction, it appears to stand still, stationary. It’s a time of focus, being immersed in what’s on our mind, coming to understand it during the duration and be good at it. Mercury stands alone, making no traditional connections in this chart. He can be considered free of constraint or from being influenced, or impotent with no connections. That can be good for pure thought, or a mire of mixed thinking that confuses and nothing comes to pass for our efforts. But, we observe and reserve and can see how things work, make a list as we go and take up some of our ideas later if they pass the test of time! Mercury can see both directions after a retrograde pattern is complete!

Mars Rx wants to DO something even if it’s wrong. Consider it a trial run. You may invest some time and materials, but that may be considered to be part of the cost of doing business. Revise your exercise program appropriate to the signs Capricorn and Aquarius. Capricorn is more conservative and able to wait things through. Might miss some worthy experiences or save a lot of time while others are flailing. In Aquarius even the Gods can’t sit still. With Mars, experiential experimenting, research are a must. It’s not just a thought, we must see it for real. And that tells the bigger story, the unanticipated becomes apparent! It’s heady and exciting! So glad we had the courage to try! We are able to advance sooner knowing how better to make things work! If we hadn’t tried, we may have missed something important and have to do a recall later.

Since Mars doesn’t complete its entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

Venus is right now putting the sweets on Pluto so he will more graciously journey his Path to the Ecliptic. Venus 19 Virgo sweetly trines Pluto in Capricorn at the same degree. She blesses him with simple advice he recognizes as a cue he is doing the right thing. His spirits are buoyed and he continues on his important life altering mission.

To the rest of us, on our daily endeavors, she will act like a salve to all the bouncing around we have been taking – the T Square challenges, the double retro. Pluto will be especially blessed. He can be so inscrutable, alone, especially in proper businesslike Capricorn dealings. But Venus listens for her cues. She understands the importance of each detail, smooths the kinks, manages the books and sometimes knows more than Pluto! She helps him without him asking. He deeply admires her and is so grateful though he may not say so. If he starts telling her secrets or indulges in a little gossip, that’s a big deal. It means he trusts her, her discretion. Prime compliment. He may at times be obsessed. She redirects his attention to the priorities in a practical way he can hear without offense. If he is neglecting his health, she offers some options and lets him choose. She is wise to that he will chuck the stuff later if he isn’t in charge. He is strong in his intuition. It has to be his choice. She adroitly makes his appointments in view of many considerations and often makes brilliant decisions herself! She might get a raise.

IN THE BACKGROUND

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, only 23 days until their 3rd and last trine Aug 19, the day after Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde.

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

The innocent, the Profound, Eclipses and Ecliptic, retrogrades, Saturn and Uranus bring us the new and pure, and ageless wisdom, and a wild crazy time! Let that thunder roll!

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Inconjunct Pluto Ecliptic Point!

Still in Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde, SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors!

Saturday August 11 at 2:58 AM Pacific, 18 Leo 42

Leo Crescent New Moon Aug 11 2018 Solar Eclipse Josephine Wall

Leo is THE sign of Cosmic Hair! Celestial artist Josephine Wall couldn’t have captured it better!

This is the last of our three summer eclipses, the second Solar Eclipse! It will be partial, best viewed in Northern Russia at 68%.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest 2018 lunar event by degree preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

The Sun is potently in his own Sign Leo the Light, joined with Mother Moon, a total Light infusion/exchange! It’s a perfect line up with Earth, a straight shot, so we get some too, ALL of us, no matter if night or day wherever you are, or whether you chart lines up with it or not!

This infusion is off to the side of, inconjunct Pluto, a dark planet, yet a Phoenix that rises from his own ashes. Infused with this Leo Heart of Light energy, Resurrection is likely! If you can see it you can heal it! Let the Light come in to never-been-seen-before places. Admit the hurt, bad places; admit the power you have always had! Get clean and use what you’ve got for the greater good! Use obsessions to your favor; focus them on your top three goals. Totally satisfying. Use extremes to your favor. Have a broad range of attention and resources, head for the top rank, then multiply that by 100 or more! Since Pluto is in Capricorn there may be old parental matters that have hobbled you for a long time. Step out now. They were only in your child mind.

In Capricorn Pluto has intentions and can be obsessed, unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

This infusion is important because Pluto is quite close now, at 19 Capricorn 20 retrograde. That’s only 22 minutes of space away! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path through our sky, the Path of Light. The Dark, hidden Plutonian ways, skills, come to the Light to lend a hand on the quiet. The Light brightens our Path so we know exactly where we are needed next. No mistake. Capricorn is the Builder. Raise the elevation. Build a Bridge that we may collaborate and have union. Build a Temple that we may give gratitude.

On the day before, Aug 10, at 8:54 PM Pacific, the Moon was exactly with Mercury the Messenger. They were square Jupiter in Scorpio and inconjunct Neptune in Pisces. Things went bump in the night. Scorpio loves the dark. It’s the Underworld medium where secrets and power can be kept or corrupted, used for healing the invisible psyche, clearing subtle forms obscured by daylight scrutiny. It’s a different medium and things that belong to it must be observed in their own element for true comprehension. Jupiter wants the truth, so will do what it takes, hoping it’s luck will protect it.

Neptune in his own sign Pisces is another nighttime combination, the Dreamtime. If you feel it you can heal it. Our imaginations give us cues that we can use when we are ready and able. Moon in Leo brings the Light and  nurtures the shadows, obscurity may grant a glimpse when the mists momentarily part. Logical Mercury doesn’t panic, is used to such dramatic options. He is quick to note what he saw, and amazingly talks it over with Neptune, who isn’t always able to stay clear. His natural element is intuition, not logic. By naming it, a lot can be released, a fear or an addiction is over.This important work first allows the Eclipse to do greater work since the channel is not blocked or slowed, obscured, by psychic or emotional debris.

Mars and Mercury are still both Retrograde. (See also the Full Moon above for more about them.) They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and Mars being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving the square with Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!​

Mars and Mercury matters are not settled. Mars in Aquarius is on the brink of returning to Capricorn for 29 days. What we are doing and why, the work we do and who we do it with, are under consideration. Old skills work, but new ideas lead to greater success in time! Mercury is in Leo, matters of the heart, our sense of personal identity, our creative ability. They are being reviewed. How we talk about those matters, and who we talk with, makes a huge difference. Consider, but don’t expect a final answer during the double retrograde. Wait a good four days after Mercury goes forward, direct, Aug 18 to take any action at all. And you are still taking your chances until after Mars goes direct Aug 27. Be ready to make further adjustments.SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors! We not only have a New Moon, new beginnings, but six factors in the six first degrees! Four of them are moving forward into new ventures, but Mars and the North Node are retrograding, making sign changes.

  • Mars is retrograding out of Aquarius, at 0 AQ, back to 29 and 28 Capricorn.
  • Chiron is Retrograde at 1 Aries, is slower than Mars, so doesn’t catch up with Mars.
  • Uranus is also retrograding at 2 Taurus, slower than Chiron, but in a close position with Chiron that it holds for a 13 year period. They have both changed signs this year, however, so the new game is on! Aries is new beginnings and leaders. Uranus was in Aries, but has passed the baton to Chiron as Uranus is now in the next sign Taurus. Sudden Earth changes. Animals, plants, minerals, climate.
  • Saturn is Rx at 3 Capricorn, but doesn’t go so far back as to connect with either Chiron or Uranus.
  • Venus at 4 Libra is going forward and is leaving her square with Saturn. Being in one of her own signs, Libra, she attempted to placate or boost Saturn’s morale, act as a go-between, or inspire him to find a kinder way to negotiate. It was a challenge, he may not immediately act on, but still, the experience of their encounter is with him. He sees the advantage she offers.
  • She has more success sextile the North Node at 5 Leo! Leo likes her style and she draws him out of himself to consider other people’s needs as well as his own. She does it with class, so he follows her lead! The NN, always in a general retrograde motion, will take her beautiful and classy insights with him back into Cancer. Even the kids will eat the cross cultural dramatic, exciting food preparations! Heroes will be born!

IN THE BACKGROUND

This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter’s last trine with Neptune Aug 19! Jupiter is now at 14 Scorpio 49, only 47 minutes of space apart and 8 days until the trine is exact! It’s only 7 days until Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde, the day before the Jupiter trine!

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign Leo! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway. If you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time for acceptance and synthesis. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! Thank you.

Uranus Aries Dangermond Preserve Pt Conception

Dec 22, 2017 when Uranus was at 24° Aries, Laura & Jack Dangermond made a bold move. They donated $165M to preserve 24,000 acres at Point Conception CA. They hope their gift to the Nature Conservancy, their leadership, encourages similar philanthropic efforts. See more And from National Geographic

Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus the same day as our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations created. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk publicly about sex, money, death. Food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, from worldwide AIDS to gay marriage, and guns. We’ve gotten television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! Environmental awareness is on the table, and now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus is the planet of R/Evolution, Stars, Space, the great Internet! Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. They support us to be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind; uninfluenced we find our own special path. Uranus is the planet of philanthropy and electronics technology.

Chiron’s sign change into Aries is the first of the 5 outer planet sign changes of 2018. Chiron and Uranus travel together in Aries, one at the beginning, the other at the end, 28 days, until Uranus enters Taurus May 15. Uranus has spectacularly crashed and burned, created rifts and openings to ease Chiron’s way, to see new beginnings, work his healing magic in more etheric realms, do the business of the Soul! Uranus will pass the baton to Chiron. In Taurus Uranus will plow the fertile fields for further seeds to be planted by Chiron.

Uranus will be in Aries the first part of 2018 until it goes into Taurus May 15, on the Taurus NEW MOON. It’s the same day, Mars leaves Capricorn, jumps into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! That keeps the frequencies amped, and Mars, new and first, unfettered in Aquarius the Awakener, is delighted to make the change! It does square Uranus, but that is just more exciting for those two, or a mere flea bite in the bull’s fur! Uranus stays in this preview in Taurus until it retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6 for the rest of the year.

The change into Taurus precedes the second Jupiter trine Neptune. See more. The first Jupiter trine Neptune, big dreams, was while Uranus was in Aries, the sign of new times, action to be taken, leadership. This time the dreams will be Taurus flavored. Like a farmer with the land, steady dawn to dusk, plowing, sowing, watering, feeding, harvesting, providing our food, our dreams will show us how to do these things in all ways in our lives. As in the old song, Bible verse, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. This allowing, patience, the skill to harmonize with natural cycles, will continue to be emphasized because the introductory aspect, the second Jupiter trine Neptune, continues closely until it finishes in summer, August 19! This is a very psychic aspect and will keep us tuned in, precisely. Since it is an easy trine, we may not even notice it, and that is a beautiful trick of the heavens. Sometimes the most profound aspects happen without our really even giving it much thought. One day we just notice we have changed. It just gradually came over us….

Uranus in Aries certainly has brought a ‘revolution’ with the election of Trump. It is a classic reactionary state. Not everyone was in favor of a black president, nor the white woman offered. Too much at once. Financial, medical and age factors have changed and will change more. The environment and animals are being threatened. Those who are working to sustain equal rights – for women, races, sexuality – have their work cut out for them. Many international relationships are suffering. Uranus calls for comm-unity of purpose. Uphill battle. Many are rethinking the true meaning of equality. Young people, high school age, are speaking powerfully and marching, turning the tables. They will be voting age shortly.

Chaos. Uranus rules air. We had tornadoes, hurricanes and the attendant rains and floods. Aries rules fire and dryness. We had severe droughts, and 2017 we had the worst year on record for fires. California has had its worst fire on record. These ‘natural’ events are great equalizers. Rescuers hold no concern for your politics. They are there to help. Re-evolution might be another way to say it. So many have been literally moved from their locations, homes, lifestyle. Why rebuild the past when we can build our future?! Truly a time of great new beginnings! We can help each other learn to live and build sustainably.

Inventions have been extraordinary since 2011/2012 when Uranus entered Aries. Crowdfunding, robotics, drones, self-driving vehicles, work with genomes, reusable rockets, immune engineering, Tesla Autopilot/self driving trucks, reversing paralysis! And those are only a few!

We have been shocked, awakened, made new beginnings! Stay with it!

TAURUS! I don’t know if you can even imagine what Taurus will bring! Instead of rising on Aries rocket fuel, Uranus, the spaceship, is landing! Uranus will be in Taurus until April 25, 2026 electrifying every earthly molecule.

Taurus rules Earth herself. Expect environmental changes. More dramatic climate change and laws about it. Lands and animals will be abused by some, protected by others. Hopefully more people like the Dangermonds, preserving pristine tracts of land, will step up. Please guard Taurus’s tree, the Oak. As we had air and fire turbulence while Uranus was in Aries, Taurus may bring quakes and mudslides, cave ins, volcanic venting. Some will be unceremoniously uprooted. Political changes will be less volatile, but there will be steady progress, important basic rights not forgotten.

Plant genes are already being altered in hopes of making them yield more food and resist drought and disease more effectively.

Taurus rules our bodies, our beauty. Uranus may change standards of attractiveness, more selfies taken, LOL! As in reversing paralysis, disfigurements may be extraordinarily healed. Diseases will be cured and prevented. Taurus is noted for patience, but with Changemaker lightning Uranus there is no standing still, nor patience so much as in the past, yet patience itself may become exceptional. Taurus’s superb strength is being awakened! Respect.

Basic values may undergo serious shifts as we discover more in our world. Some will become practically robots themselves, living through electronics as their only experience. Others may go back to nature, small homes. Communal living may multiply as resources or finances dwindle, or because sustainable living is an ethical choice. There are solar cell inventions that will provide sustainable energy. We are living in majorly changing times!

Taurus is challenged, and challenging to, other fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, fire signs Aries and Sagittarius and air signs Gemini and Libra. Taurus works well with other Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn, and water signs Cancer and Pisces. As the years roll by, factors in your chart will be activated per the degrees Uranus is at that given year.

Stand strong, steady in the Light!

Uranus Retrograde from Taurus back into Aries Nov 6

Aug 7 Uranus goes up to 2 Taurus, a bare glimpse, then retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6. But there will be precognition! Purpose will be established, Aries will look for the best ways to boost the new Taurus work. They will find the best ways to champion their efforts fitting to the cause. There will be potential new technology that will help show the way. Change may be surprisingly sudden. Some of it will be flash in the pan, while others will wake up the sleeping and dead and bring them on board! People you least expected will find their time has come. Really! There will be surprising results as people ignite and heed the last call! It will be 84 years before this transition happens again. Do it!

It is within that Taurus preview that Uranus hosts Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! Pluto starts a powerful TEN days including Uranus’ retrograde return into Aries Nov 6!

Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event! See more!!!
Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

2018 ends with the Lights ON! Pluto is intensified by the Light, channels the Light! Uranus is in the Aries firelight! A Scorpio New Moon may be dark, but Uranus is lightning and Aries is candles and firelight! This New Moon won’t be so dark as it usually could be. Jupiter in Scorpio might put a temporary shadow on Uranus, but even that wouldn’t daunt Uranus or Aries! Jupiter’s intensity in Scorpio could intrigue them to listen, but both Uranus and Aries function at warp speed, so Jupiter better be right to the point and quick about it! Eye contact will be brief to say the least! When Jupiter gets into his own sign, they will then both be in fire signs, but at opposite ends. Uranus will be at 29 Aries while Jupiter is at 0 degrees Sagittarius. They will make no further connections while Uranus is in Aries.

Feb 18, 2019, Chiron returns to Aries while Uranus is still in Aries. This is the second and last time they will both be traveling in Aries, 16 days, until March 6, 2019,  when Uranus returns to Taurus. This is their final exchange, sharing tips, thanking and wishing each other well. Uranus leaves Taurus for Gemini 2025-26.

Fire signs represent courage and inspiration! Pluto, Uranus and Saturn will be in Earth signs. Physical and practical, they literally build our future and, with Uranus in Taurus, get it done to the latest specs! Though Uranus is the ChangeMaker, Taurus is a ‘fixed’ sign and some of these upgrades will last a long time. Strong, steady, infinitely useful.

In 20 years, the next sign they will travel together in is Cancer. Each of three times it will be for several months, 2038/39, again in 2039, and last in 2040.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” John F Kennedy  [3 planets Taurus, Uranus in its own sign Aquarius]

First Full Moon in March, Worm Moon!
5 Planets in Pisces – Trine Jupiter!

First Full Moon in March, Worm Moon!
5 Planets in Pisces – Trine Jupiter!  

Thursday Mar 1 at 4:51 PM Pacific, 11 Virgo Pisces 23! 

Pisces Mermaid Boat Lantern Full Moon

The Moon may be in Virgo, but the weight is with Pisces! There are 5 planets in Pisces to fuel the Magic that Virgo writes about!! Astonishing imagination and revelation!
  • Sun and Neptune, the Pisces planet, pair up at 11 & 13 degrees opposite the Moon! Sun and Neptune can live in a fantasy world that is sometimes more real than what we all think is the way the world is! It can be confused, addictions, living in Maya as some spiritualists call it – the illusion of money and matter versus heart and Soul. Or it can be profound meditation, psychic insight, God is your Guide. The Sun puts Light in the places we fear or have misunderstood. We hear sound that moves the Universe; we travel the mystic portals of time and beauty.Moon in Virgo keeps a clear mind, analyzes, tends us through difficult moments with her common sense. She makes our life more easy by removing messes and organizing what’s left in smooth order and easy access when we need it. Less goods is less work, less that nags at our subconscious. Virgo kindly documents as we go so we can track our progress. Super gods and goddesses! Thank you.Sun and Neptune are inconjunct the Moon’s North Node at 14 Leo. Sun is Leo’s planet, so there is a camaraderie. The Moon’s Nodes are always moving in the retrograde (backward) direction, so they are all also heading toward each other! Inconjuncts are magical in that they invite a side trip of some kind. They can be a bit wacky, off center! They can distract, even take us on a journey we are glad we didn’t miss, and sometimes we go off and never return.Sun and Neptune offer a spiritual course, creative art, images and music, oceanic, in depth fathomless living, never predictable! Leo offers the center stage crown of Light, big hearted Love, the colors of creation, being true to yourself! What a combination! Mix ’em up!
  • The Sun sextiled Saturn the 25th, and the Moon trined Saturn only hours before at 10:10 AM. Moon in Virgo, being an earth sign, and these ties with Saturn, Capricorn’s earth planet, have stabilized and prioritized the Pisces dream. It can be built, the core destination imprinted in renderings, and artful magic added! The 4th will be a key day when the Sun conjuncts Neptune, then Mercury conjuncts Venus, the contract made, the blessing secured, the mission on its way! Mercury goes into Aries the 5th, Venus the 6th, and it’s time for action!
  • Mercury and Venus pair up at 22 & 23 degrees with Chiron just beyond at 27. Mercury and Venus trine Jupiter. Mercury and Venus in Pisces notice the divine attributes and put them into words and images that can take our breath away. We ‘see’ with extraordinary insight and compassion is awakened. Their trine with Jupiter in Scorpio takes it to a deeper level. We walk in the secrets of our own or another’s underworld whether that be darkness or the power within. We see the important standing we all have within each other’s relationships.
  • Jupiter in turn trines Chiron though not exact until quite later in the year Nov 1! It is preparing a fertile outlook. Chiron in Pisces is particularly interested in the healing of chronic wounds of the Soul and Spirit. Those wounds can be so deep, from many lifetimes ago, indwelling, hard to name they are so invisibly a part of us. They seem like unfathomable addictions sometimes.Jupiter in Scorpio seeks the deepest darkest truths that hurt us so, have kept us buried. Jupiter can rename them and give us the perspective to understand, to safely release them. We are in good company and become ready to take the next steps, to travel on with our eyes uplifted.

THREE IN THE BACKGROUND! These will be with us through September, then two are finished and one remains until November.

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Mars at 20 degrees Sagittarius is midpoint semi-sextile between them spurring them on! He takes Pluto’s powerful secrets and tells the story to Jupiter (in Pluto’s sign Scorpio), who lets it be known to the right parties so the good work may be fully funded. Through these links strong people are met, fulfilling partnerships made. Scorpio and Pluto want excellence of research about life and death. Make the project proposal.

2) Jupiter inconjunct Uranus is another in-the-background aspect. It won’t become exact until Nov 7, right after Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1. Uranus retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6, as if to meet Jupiter exactly at this 29 degree location Nov 7, just before Jupiter jumps into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Since Uranus is retrograde, they are both heading toward this aspect. It is virtually a glimpse as they both change signs! Uranus will remain in Aries, carrying the energy of this meeting until March 6, 2019. Jupiter will clearly immediately, have new things to do, but will be flavored by the encounter. Uranus in Aries is memorable! See more

  • The inconjunct occurs at 29 Scorpio/Aries. 29 is the last degree of a sign, considered the finality, the maturity, a critical passage point. The conclusion must be reached, there is sadness it is over, glad it is done, time to celebrate! If you miss it, the issue lingers in your consciousness, perhaps never able to be completed. On the other hand, perhaps it simply calls us to move on, take what we’ve got and check out further possibilities! Jupiter gets a boost from Uranus as it leaves Scorpio. Scorpio is called a fixed signs, more of a stabilizer. Uranus in Aries is no such thing! It is meant to create havoc and chaos, stir the pot to high momentum. Maybe this is just the charge Jupiter needs to thrust into his own sign, shake off the underworld shackles of Scorpio, loosen up and be ready for action. Scorpio is a powerful learning place of important things. Important to have impetus to teach them! Time to take the trip of a lifetime!
  • Uranus in Aries is not long on memory, but is quick on its feet! It will take the Jupiter in Scorpio values and immediately push the information forward! Uranus does have long vision for the planet and because of their extensive connections, will know perfectly where to place Jupiter’s pearls where they will do the most good. Mission accomplished!

3) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

St Patrick’s New Moon!

Four in Pisces at cross with the Galactic Center! Aries & Capricorn!

Saturday Mar 17 at 6:12 AM Pacific, 26 Pisces 53!

Pisces New Moon Milky Way Tasmania Bioluminescence

If there is no MoonLight, try bioluminescence under the Milky Way! Now that’s magic! South Arm Peninsula, Tasmania, Australia. May 18, 2015 by awesome photographer James Garlick

Mars is in his last hours of Sagittarius! The New Moon is 6:12 AM Pacific; Mars goes into Capricorn at 9:41 AM. From then until the Moon goes into Taurus March 19 at 6:07 PM Pacific, babies born will have their planets in only four signs – Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces and Aries! Their talents will be focused!

Our New Moon has 4 planets in Pisces! Neptune is in Pisces, his own sign! Sun and Moon are conjunct Chiron square the Galactic Center.

The Sun trined Jupiter the 13th and Moon trined Jupiter the night before at 11:11 PM Pacific. The Moon carries the Sun’s trine forward. Both have been charged by Jupiter with information to share, long distance visions in time and place to carry forward, finesse in the dreamtime. They in turn conjunct Chiron and transfuse him with their insights. It’s a time to heal the Spirit of subtle wounds, to learn and teach healing methods. Business will do better following delicate changes, and relationships will be more empathic.

Mars was at the Galactic Center March 10 and 11. Sun and Moon are right in the square to the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius and Chiron is just passed but is still quite close. Mars is the activator, quick to respond, a champion! The GC is a profound place of Light. It’s a channel we can query, or be directed by. It has a magnitude of enlightenment, carries great meaning, has a collective perspective. Sun and Moon will add their glory to what Mars is now carrying. Mars takes 2 years to circle, so it won’t be another 2 years before the next infusion. Chiron has already checked in during 2016, but is still in the same sign and still quite close. Squares are challenging. Perhaps there are times we resist or need to grow into the information itself. Likely. Finding good ways to speak of it can be difficult. The same breakthroughs we require others require too. When we find it challenging, that is often the time it’s most needed. Steady on.

Neptune in Pisces holds the anchor being in his own sign. He takes 168 years to complete his cycle, and he’s been in Pisces this time since 2012, now about half way through. He’s experienced. Sensitivity is building. These are times to ask questions, hear others. Neptune is master of the Dreamtime, loves fantasy, magicians, makes music and art, is the ruler of the ocean! Ships, harbors, waves, water sports, world imports and exports often travel the seas. Mists, veils, soften our vision. Spiritual, vision quests take us to far places.

Mercury and Venus were in Pisces with the Full Moon. In our New Moon they are in Aries! Mercury just semi-sextiled Neptune, Venus is about to! We need some words to bring Neptune’s dreams conscious. We need a scribe with a sweet way to make the words attractive and beautiful, valuable. Mercury and Venus in Aries are in the sign of the next step! They want to take point, give an exciting inspiring rendition! They want to get people started! Venus gives her blessing. Neptunians are often behind the scenes and need a champion! Mercury and Venus are pros at sales, marketing and advertising! Get that blog rolling! It’s news!

The Moon’s North Node is inconjunct Neptune and trine Mercury and Venus! In Leo, it is ready to profess what’s in its heart, let us know more of who he is! Neptune reveals another layer of our being, Mercury and Venus are perfectly placed to tell this story! Leo lights it up! It’s a subtle drama, that seemed to start from nothing, yet well put, touches many of our hearts.

There are three important background aspects going on! Please see above to see all about them! They will be with us through September, then two are finished and one remains until November.

So how is this for a St Patrick’s Saturday night party Moon?! You’re on! Pisces knows how to have fun, and Venus with Mercury, aaand Uranus, aren’t going to miss a moment! Venus in Aries loves a rip roaring good time! Mercury chats about everything with every person that arrives! If there wasn’t a party, they will start one and it may move from place to place! Uranus in Aries is wildly funny, crazy happy with all his good friends! In the US, Mars is already in Capricorn, the POLICE! So he either watches over you as your friend, or if you get too rowdy, oops, you may find yourself in the slammer. He would be the choice for the designated driver!

If you aren’t a partier, have your own kind of fun. Candles are good, music to soothe your Soul. Solitude is a blessing. And you can feel virtuous, smile. Either way, enjoy!

Roll with the tides. I’ll meet you at the shore…

Total Lunar ECLIPSE Full Blue SuperMoon!
150 Years! Moon’s Nodes, Venus, Mercury & Jupiter!  

Wednesday Jan 31, 5:27 AM Pacific at 11 Leo/AQ 34!

2018 Total Lunar Eclipse Blue Blood SuperMoon

First time in 150 years!!! Being the Second Full Moon of January, makes it a Blue Moon! And, it is the FIRST ECLIPSE of 2018! The Moon turns a rusty blood red as it passes through Earth’s shadow. Annnd, it will be visible in most of western North America! At 5:27 AM Pacific, we Westies will be getting up early!

Being a SuperMoon, our Eclipse will be closer to Earth, just a little bigger and brighter! Leo Moon loves it that way! Praying for a clear early morning sky! Snug in your down jacket, warm boots, and bring the hot chocolate!

The Eclipse group closely spans the Moon’s nodes, Moon at the North node ascending! Time to light up the night! Leo warms the heart, creates a generous space, shares volumes! Moon cares about and Leo dotes on loved ones and they both love being sweeted and treated! Bring the kids, both children and adult kids, that is. In fact, why not gather in the field or on the mountaintop for Eclipse viewing?! Leo calls us to stand tall in ourselves, calls our bodies and Spirits to be champions. Leo IS the sign of our sun, LIGHT.

At the other side of our Full Moon, Sun and Venus are together in Aquarius! Sun in AQ loves the heavenly view, could even be on a flight and watching the Eclipse from altitude! Sun is a great friend in Aquarius, and he and Venus love the blessings of their friends. There is such beauty in each unique Soul, gifts beyond measure. They offer a loving kindness, a grace to all. The gathering, their unity, is so much greater than one alone.

Collaborating is a grand tactic! Leo offers the fire of inspiration, enthusiastically their entire selves, to the cause. Aquarius gathers the Souls. Aquarius can be a loner at times, contemplating the astonishing possibilities of change and evolution! And there are times they just need to be free. Just free. They drift away. Sometimes they don’t come back. But if, when, they do, they are supercharged and things get delegated and done!

The Eclipse is at 11 degrees. Neptune neighbors the Sun at 12 Pisces, and inconjuncts the Moon. Neptune adds mystery, an unknown dose of magic, invisibilities like dreams, ideals, Spirit of the Soul. It seeks to heal the causes of addictions, as well as to make music and art. It calls for compassion and empathy as well as thoughtful humanitarianism. Neptune reflects Moon’s light that shimmers on the waves and waters, that she may see many more facets of life and creation. Leo can be stubborn sometimes, enjoying things just the way they were, but Moon has her cycles and Neptune dissolves us into future fate, gives an invitation to an even bigger life! Imagination is key!

Caution. Venus is soon to square Jupiter, Feb 3 at 10:07 PM Pacific. In Aquarius she wants the world or doesn’t care at all, about anything! Jupiter thinks she should have it if she wants it, but in Scorpio, the question is how much and who pays for it?! Is she being greedy or selfish? If it’s a fundraiser there may be trouble getting started, the donor reneges or has left the country, or wants too much control of the operation. Venus may want something people don’t understand, too exotic, ahead of its time. Lot of explaining/demonstrating to do or they just don’t get it. Break it down into smaller bites and start with what can be done at this time. Pay attention to security matters and keep tabs on existing accounts. Principles matter. If the donor is unethical, you may decide not to accept the offer. Check the contract carefully. Oh, and this is not the One, at least not at this time.

Mercury is at the very brink of Aquarius, carries the Full Moon information forward! The Eclipse is 5:27 AM Pacific; Mercury goes into AQ 13 minutes later, 5:40 AM! Capricorn work is so finished! Mission accomplished, feather in our caps! Mercury’s best sign is considered to be Aquarius, the sign of genius! There is a whole Universe out there to explore, playground of the Gods! There is often a little bit of delightfully giddy chaos! Connections are made at light speed, a streak through the heavens! Networks come together. Phones and internet are too slow. Astonishing ideas. Research is on the cutting edge. And this is only the beginning! It’s a brief flare as Mercury rides the lightning so do it NOW! He goes into Pisces Feb 17, but what a ride! The word is out and the lights are ON!

Though it was exact Jan 15, the day before the New Moon, the powerful long term background aspect Jupiter sextile Pluto is still strong! And it will continue to be! Jupiter and Pluto travel less than 3 degrees of each other for FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14.

Jupiter will come close to its trine with Chiron, but retrogrades 2 degrees before it completes. Very close, but won’t complete that trine until Nov 1, and then only once. There is a strong desire for deep healing, healing of the cause, at the source. There is a longing to do business that matters in a good way. We whisper of eternal love, set a greater standard, wait for the right timing.

With Jupiter & Pluto, expect further shifts in educational status. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra-kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! Try out new investments. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. Careful timing is required this year due to some complex and lengthy inner planet retrograde sequences. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

Literally, keep the future in mind and take action accordingly. 2020 and 2021 are very soon. Keep climate in mind. Seek higher, safer ground with good water and sustainability. Be with people making the world a better place.

Happy SuperMoon Eclipse viewing!

Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon!
Chinese New Year, Fixed Star Algol, Venus, Mars & Jupiter!

Thursday Feb 15 at 1:05 PM Pacific, 27 AQ 08!

Aquarius 2018 New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse

The day after Valentine’s Day, a partial Solar Eclipse, the Moon cookie bites the Sun! Not visible in North America.

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! In addition to the New Moon, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, so it’s like a triple eclipse! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific, before the New Moon here. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care, about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear or say. Feb 16, Chinese New Year in the US, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the brown Earth dog. See more about the Brown Earth Dog year!

Moon aligns and merges with Sun, an essence of the two Lights in Aquarius. At a late degree, 27, it is a mature Sun. In the last 27 days much has happened and been accomplished. An annual recentering and affirmation has brought Aquarians back to their extraordinary Light Body selves. They are at their final charging for their year to come. It takes energy to awaken humanity, to introduce changes, to gather such diverse Souls for collaborative group work. Hats off to these Beings. Sun literally lights the way; Moon nurtures the clan, the mothers and children, the weak and tired. She retrieves those who are lost.

Moon and Sun have both also been charged by Uranus, their own planet! They just sextiled Uranus. Uranus in Aries is like a fire breathing dragon! There is no missing its wild electric scent! There’s fire in the forge. Time to give a little shove in the right direction. Throw down the gauntlet and see who comes. One person, one act, is all it takes to start it going. Aries is ignition and initiation! Aquarius is the Awakener! Feel that tingle of excitement! Once up and out, you can still go back, but it’s not the same old, same old. Nope.

To add to it, Mercury in Aquarius just sextiled red hot and spicy Uranus in Aries! That’s potent for two reasons. Mercury’s best sign is considered to be Aquarius, genius! And Uranus is the Aquarian planet! Crazy, amazing, odd and exotic ideas zip through our minds! We go from just wanting our freedom to wanting to join the most fabulous exciting organization to ramrod our project that never seemed possible before, but here it is now! We make super friends in an instant. The world is awakening and it’s time for meaningful change! Seeds are being planted. Mercury carries these ideas right to the heart of the Sun Feb 17! He jumps right into the LIGHT! He receives the infusion, the charge, the batteries are stoked for the next run! He goes right into Pisces that night, so it may be a bit murky for a while, but he has the torch! It’s not dark for long though – the Sun follows into Pisces the next day!

Venus is sextiling Saturn to make sure it all gets done. Saturn is in his own sign Capricorn. That equals getting the job done by definition! Capricorns are efficient and dedicated. Saturn carries the mission to completion. Venus in Pisces has the dream and Capricorn is her valiant ally and guardian. She admires his work, gives thanks for what he builds brick by brick, board by board. She sweetens Saturn’s day.

Chiron also in Pisces, but at a much later degree, is square the Galactic Center. He vows to make the breakthroughs required to make it all possible, be so much more than expected!

Adventurer Mars in Sagittarius loves a challenge and in Sag is the champion of the greater Truth! He doesn’t publish stories, he IS the story! At this point he is square Neptune, the Pisces planet in Pisces! He is poised to put the whammy on Neptune’s fears and addictions, release the Princess from her prison of her own making! The New Moon gets right to the center of things, so Mars is perfectly placed. Aquarius puts an air of detachment on things, allows less emotionalism, more clarity. These breakthroughs may be shocking at the moment of the breaking, but there is kind of an Ah…. about it too. Finally, released. We had been waiting. The Eclipse first also helps. It gives some quieter moments yet the channel is intense. The message comes through. Mars makes the exact square the 17th 3:21 AM Pacific, so essentially, the 16th is the active day.

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Our last New Moon trined Algol, but this time it squares Algol, 26 Taurus. Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus or have factors at 26 degrees, you may have some potent personal insights. It’s the head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. The detached aspect of Aquarius, unafraid, sees problems squarely and shockingly may tell all out loud. That bald assessment may cause the outer shell to be shattered, we then be free to heal a long held layer of agony. That sounds melodramatic perhaps, but it can make all the difference whether we stay in chains or move forward with our lives.

Jupiter sextile Pluto in Capricorn continues in the background. Wealth, super health, possibly the mate of a lifetime!

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

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

Jupiter is slowing to retrograde March 9 at 23 degrees Scorpio. He almost trines Chiron, inconjuncts Uranus. Those aspects will come Nov 1 and 7. With Chiron we see the potential for alternative healing and business methods, the possibility of personal and financial partnerships. Head in those directions. The inconjunct with Uranus will take us new directions; we will consider some unusual options. Keep looking. We have hints of what’s to come, we start getting ready. We may be disappointed when it doesn’t happen yet. Seeds have been planted. Nurture them for as far as they have gotten. Some may be slumbering; keep them alive. Enhance their habitat so they can do good work when it’s their time.

Aquarius is an air sign. Do some breath work. Sing your Om shanti. Make your call to the brethren. They will come.

Jupiter Trine Neptune Cabo San Lucas Resort Couple Relaxing Ocean View

Proposal or Honeymoon! Whether at a Resort or on a cruise, or you own them, either way, it can be a dream come true!

Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune is magical reform, a deep harmony of purpose, super dreams come true! They can be financial, personal relationships that deepen, long awaited cleansing healing, spiritual Gateways traveled. Could be the cruise of a lifetime!

The Dec 2 last aspect of 2017 was also the first of the three trines. There are two more that are close in degrees from the second one May 25 to the third one Aug 19, 2018.

It happens that Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius started the day of that first aspect, Dec 2 2017! The first phase of the Rx cycle started Nov 15, so all the day’s degrees preceding the Rx to the exact trine date Dec 2, were crossed twice more! Things on your mind that lead up to the exact trine have been reconsidered. When Mercury went direct/forward, those events were finalized with well tested mature solutions! Mercury was in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign, the neighboring sign following Scorpio. It enticed Jupiter to offer options of long term value, promises of future potential. Scorpio may have at moments felt one-upped, but Jupiter instinctively went for the best possible outcome and Scorpio is no fool. Scorpio likely allowed Jupiter to use some of his monies for the venture!

At that time, I wrote: Mercury Rx in Sagittarius squares Pisces, the sign Neptune of the Sea is at home. Neptune/Pisces, though a flexible planet/sign, may be a little harder to bring on board. First of all Neptune has his own mighty rhythms, has the vision of the Soul. A mere project proposed by a flashy dancer does not always impress him, yet he does see more about how it fits in the world about him, possibly an important piece, a stepping stone maybe. Be a good facilitator! Be persistent. He can at times be other worldly and it’s hard to get his attention. There are many layers to what he sees, a complexity beyond words, worlds that merge and diverge, flowing within each other! Line up your flow with the flow of his tides. Sync up. Show him how things link, really listen to his alternatives. It may be the biggest experience you have ever had! After all, Jupiter is trining, the best possible aspect, with Neptune right now! No neglect, get to it, don’t miss the window! Use this divine gateway, the Rainbow! With Mercury Rx, you have three chances and it may take all three to get it done! This retrograde may be super valuable!

I hope you really did use this window, perhaps kept some notes! It is still happening for you, even if you don’t remember exactly what you thought or what happened then. During the months of the two more aspects to come it may come back to you and you succeed from where it left off before!

The sign change Uranus into Taurus precedes the second Jupiter trine Neptune. See more. The first Jupiter trine Neptune, big dreams, was while Uranus was in Aries, the sign of new times, action to be taken, leadership. This time the dreams will be Taurus flavored. Like a farmer with the land, steady dawn to dusk, plowing, sowing, watering, feeding, harvesting, providing our food, our dreams will show us how to do these things in all ways in our lives. As in the old song, Bible verse, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. This allowing, patience, the skill to harmonize with natural cycles, will continue to be emphasized because the introductory aspect, the second Jupiter trine Neptune, continues closely until it finishes in summer, August 19! This is a very psychic aspect and will keep us tuned in, precisely. Since it is an easy trine, we may not even notice it, and that is a beautiful trick of the heavens. Sometimes the most profound aspects happen without our really even giving it much thought. One day we just notice we have changed. It just gradually came over us….

August 19 is during a Mercury station as Mercury turns Direct, out of retrograde, Aug 18. It anchors the feeling of peace the trine has brought. We are focused with the intent of the vision. Mercury figures in strongly at the beginning and end of the three trines. At the end, Mercury is 11 Leo. The words are on the billboard! Leo lights the mind, enlightenment. It’s in the sign of the heart of gold! Creative and expressive! Self realization. A summer celebration party! If the trine has brought you beauty and psychic insights, it will bring you much to celebrate as its full reward is released. Mars is still retrograde, but will go Direct August 27, soon to release its energy as well!

Jupiter in Scorpio may increase your finances exponentially especially if you use your intuition! That means choosing investors with excellent creds and using the best timing! Or, you may find yourself spending more than you have in your entire life! And every penny may be worth it! Buying oceanfront property may be just the ticket! Could even be in another country. Invest in international concert tours! Make music! Put your art or photos up so they can be seen!

If you go on that cruise, there may be profound experiences, insights about people, the condition of the planet. Exceptional relationships may be intense, change your life. Trust or scams, no denial. Sometimes we need to face our success and stand well for ourselves. You may find yourself deeply in love whether it’s good for you or not. Love is love and sex may be tantric, mysterious and magical! With Neptune it may have more to do with your Soul connection than the assessments of your accountant. If you go sharesies, invest to test the waters. As wonderful as things seem to be, prenups may be the right choice to start. Jupiter is a bit Pollyanna at times, Neptune can be in denial.

Relaxation is vital to our being. Whether it be letting your hair down, quiet time meditating, sitting around with your lover watching sunsets, going to sleep and dreaming, playing music, dabbling with your art, it’s all good. Rest is vital to healing and intuition. It’s hard to see well when we are stressed or tired. Subtle strengths are as important as conscious awareness.

It’s time to make some upward spirited career, life Path choices. The more in accord with your core you are, the better your health will be, the better your relationships. You will prosper in a good way, be a community member in good standing, perhaps being able to gift educational funds, people in frail conditions, helpful research. You may determine to counsel or coach others with their relationships, successfully work with people in addiction recovery, physical therapy or with hospice. Helping people with their finances is a wonderful way to get people through their lives with dignity. Working on a cruise line or guiding trips of all kinds opens people’s hearts planet wide, builds links through understanding and compassion. Ocean and water sports businesses are refreshing and exhilarating!

Research may be quite secretive but a substantial body of work could be done. Apply for grants, make proposals for your thesis, establish a location. Have your astrologer do some AstroLocality work for you, both for personal and professional purposes. Financial cycles, medical cures, learning matters, comparisons of countries and related topics could be good choices.

Go to school, go back to school! Learning how to learn, choosing something meaningful soothes our Soul, encourages us to do the greater good. It calls us to be more productive, be healed and heal others in whatever way we choose. It shows us how to keep focus and keep the goal in mind at all times.

Sign up for Religious or Spiritual Studies, go to a temple training, seek out sacred places, do a vision quest. Do take some time at the ashram or the seaside shrine. Do some tantric yoga, learn how to meditate. Go alone, go with friends, a group of like spirited Souls, choose a proven guide. Challenge yourself but be sensible too. Have your AstroLocality done, and let your astrologer check your personal timing.

Celebrate by swimming, snorkeling, exploring caves and big riversides, water skiing, surfing the shores. Hang out and party with water loving friends. If you stay on land, consider a terrific motorcycle! Scorpio has an amazing ability to recover and great stamina; Jupiter has fast reflexes and generally good luck; Neptune/Pisces knows where to be when and with whom. Just be realistic about your ability and keep good company. Take good care of your precious self.

The next truly potent aspect is the April 12, 2022 Jupiter conjunct Neptune! These are the last major trine and conjunction aspects of Jupiter to Neptune in Pisces. Sometimes we don’t think how profound an aspect may be. It will be 12 years before Jupiter goes into Pisces again after the 2022 conjunction, but Neptune will go into Aries in 2025. It will be 2175 before Neptune goes into Pisces again and these same aspects will happen! Please be very present for these. They are an important part of our progress, a last chance of their kind.
