About.com says: Lions are the only cat species that forms social groups, called prides. A pride of lions typically includes about five females and two males and their young.  Prides are often described as matriarchal because more females belong to a pride.  They remain long-term members of the pride because they live longer than male lions.

Though we think of Leo as a creature of hot summer, lions/Leos, don’t start their hunting until dusk, enjoying the cooler time of day.  After all, they do have their fur coats on, and like to sleep 20 out of 24 hours.  Lazy?  No, good.  They are great hunters, and take care of business powerfully and swiftly!  They work efficiently in teams, and, indeed, enjoy great social play time whether it’s daytime or a nighttime party!  They do take pride in their looks, their fab hair especially, and their finery whether it be the latest fashion or a fine home with a sweeping view.  Often Leo homes will be on a bit higher ground, or have a balcony of sorts, for them to hold court from!

Leo women love receiving little gifts, or big gifts, being courted and cared for tenderly and romantically.  But make no mistake, they can call the shots with no qualms, be in charge, be teachers, physicians, lead with their athletic prowess!  Treat your handsome Leo guy like the prince he is, and he will roll over and purr!  He is grateful for your recognition and appreciation!  He may flirt, can’t help it, but you’re his one and only!

Leo children need lots of praise and affection, be let to try out their capabilities.  Give them lots to do interspersed with play and snuggly quiet rest time.  They need cheerful playmates and examples of positive social skills.  They can be selfish if fearful, generous if they have good self esteem, trust their own abilities, feel well-loved.

Big hearted, it is grand to be loved by a fiery Leo!

Now for some odd Leo stats from Britain, Security Gripes:

Leos total 19% of the imprisoned population for crimes of violence.  (Woops)
Leos total 9% of the population in mental institutes.
Leos total 17% of the armed forces.
Leos are the least represented sign in the world of art.  (How can that be?)
Leos are more represented in the security world than any other sign.
Leos are least prone to blackmail than any other sign.

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo’s heroine this year is from the past!

She is the fabulous Aug 7, 1884 Billie Burke, who performed Glinda, the good witch of the North, Wizard of OZ (also Leo, premiered Aug 15, 1939)! She said: I am constantly amazed when I talk to young people to learn how much they know about sex and how little about soap. :) She was Ziegfeld’s (Follies) wife, and has a filmography list like you wouldn’t believe!  See her chart and a bit about it!

This Jupiter in Taurus is very happy with Mama Moon’s Sun sign Cancer.  Taurus is the food producer farmer, Cancer makes sure there is plenty of water, Mama Earth’s milk.  Jupiter is fast and expansionary, unusually big!  Earthy Taurus is steady fertile growth gaining momentum, rich in organic soil nutrients, gains a pleasing shape.  Cancer is regular care and feeding.  Crops may grow faster this year, a great volume, tasty, award winning!  This is a year it is worth taking a gardening class, cooking class!  Take time to team up with a Cancer to preserve the abundant harvest!  Freeze, dehydrate for snacks and winter stews, can.

Jupiter likes stretching its mind and body, likes on-the-spot teaching.  Cancers are forever students, sponges, often with photographic memories.  And they like photography, water colors, preserving the memory for all to see.  Family photo albums can go back for generations.  Genealogy tells the story of the women and children, the matriarchs & patriarchs that made your family what it is today.  Jupiter loves stories, tomes!  Write your memoirs with anecdotes about all your relations, sketch, illustrate, add their favorite recipes.  And keepsakes of events – tickets, napkins, a scrap of lace.

Skirts.  Cumberbunds.  Home knit wraps, caps.  Aprons.  Quilts, doilies, towels, curtains, potholders.  Baby blankies and slings.  Hankies.  These are down home traditional textiles dear to a Cancer’s heart.  Wonderful gifts to make or receive!  Jupiter in Taurus loves useful items that give comfort from kitchen to bedroom, against the skin.  Plenty and generosity.

Taurus and Cancer are both food junkies, don’t want the food to run out, love growing food, lots of it!  Jupiter has a big appetite!  Won’t you please have some more?  And they need to watch their weight.  Taurus simply loves the taste and texture.  Jupiter likes something a little foreign, maybe ceremonial.  Cancer is usually traditional, loves ice cream and creamy foods, and often has a wee bit of a sensitive tummy, so be careful with the spices.

This year would be a grand time to publish a recipe book, put up an urban homestead blog, do a little importing and exporting gourmet foods!

Happy Birthdays and Summer Solstice, Cancers!
Thank you for nurturing that precious child within us!

A handsome Cancer who has not taken a back seat!!!!  Born June 30, 1985….

Michael Phelps, 16 times Olympic swimmer gold medalist, broke Mark Spitz’s records that had stood for 36 years, won 8 gold in Beijing 2008!  Per WikipediA FYI:  A few physical attributes particularly suit Phelps to swimming: his long, thin torso offers low drag; his arms span 6 feet 7 inches (201 cm)—disproportionate to his height of 6 feet 4 inches (193 cm)—and act as long, propulsive “paddles”; his relatively short legs lower drag, and perhaps add the speed enhancement of a hydrofoil; his size 14 feet provide the effect of flippers; and his hypermobile ankles he can extend beyond the pointe of a ballet dancer, enabling him to whip his feet as if they were fins for maximum thrust through the water!

Sai(nts) Baba Gone and Sinners, Osama bin Laden Death Chart

Sathya Sai Baba is gone, tornadoes came to Alabama, William & Kate had their Royal Wedding, and the beatification of John Paul II happened! 

Bin Laden’s assassination has brought extremes of thinking and further stirred an already boiling world-wide pot!  Pluto in Capricorn has brought changes in long time regimes, and isn’t quitting.  Though  bin Laden didn’t ‘rule’ for a long time, he made world-wide impact as being thought to be the power behind the 911 attack, being so immune to capture, and simply being tall among men, confirmed 6′ 4″ tall.  Uranus, planet of surprises, in fiery Aries, is coming closer and closer into its square (challenge) with Pluto, of death and healing, and will continue to be in this square until Mar 16, 2015, making 7 exact aspects!  This aspect will continue to topple governments and powerful leaders.  And, the Phoenix will rise from its own ashes.

Deciphering the moment of death is a challenge in this kind of situation.  LivingMoonAstrology.com says ‘The American commando stormed the suburban home where Bin Laden was living on May 2, 2011, at around 1 am local time, according to a witness [Sohaib Athar] twitting the events in real time.’  Wikipedia says ‘ At approximately 1:00 a.m. local time (20:00, May 1 UTC), the SEALs breached the compound’s walls using explosives and attacked the compound’s structures and the compound’s guards opened fire.’  Also, ‘”The encounter with bin Laden lasted only seconds,” according to Politico, and took place during “the last five or 10 minutes” of the raid.’  CNN reported ‘A firefight was under way for most of the 40 [38] minutes that U.S. Special Operations forces were in the compound, as the team encountered resistance from bin Laden and three other men, a senior defense official said.  The official said the forces had to fight their way through the first floor of the three-story building, where two adult males lived.  Bin Laden and his family lived on the second and third floors, and they were cleared last, with bin Laden killed in the last five or 10 minutes of the siege, the official said.’  But, the  HeraldNews.SunTime.com says ‘But bin Laden refused to give himself up. That’s when he was shot in a bedroom — only minutes into the raid — ending a 10-year manhunt.’   Wiki further says ‘The raid was intended to take 30 minutes. All told, the time between the team’s entry in and exit from the compound was 38 minutes.  Time in the compound was split into exchanging gunfire with the defenders and searching the compound for information.’

Maybe it took them 10 minutes to have his wife ID him, do the photo ID comparisons, body bag him and transport him to the helicopter and leave?  That puts us back to 1:28 AM.  I put up a chart for May 2, 2011, at 1:28 AM in Abbottabud, Pakistan.

Death of Osama bin Laden Astrology Chart

Bin Laden’s death chart Moon is at 25 Aries.  It connects with 4 factors in bin Laden’s Mar 10, 1957 sunrise birth chart [birth time unknown].  1) It same degree semi sextiles his sunrise Mars (with South Node) at 25 Taurus – didn’t surrender.  Mars is the planet of Aries, so this is a stronger semi sextile than usual.  2) The Moon trines his Pluto at 28 Leo, forming a Grand Trine – smooth flowing, with the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius!  He was a man connected with the destinies of nations, even when he was in a cave!  Perhaps it was good it went quickly.  I think there will be more to the story in time.  Perhaps good will come of it in as yet unforeseeable ways.  3) It inconjuncts his Jupiter 27 Virgo that squares the Galactic Center, schisms between religions, family and funerals – he was hated by many, ‘buried’ at sea, and his son was killed.  4) It sextiles his sunrise Moon 27 Gemini, which was opposite the Galactic Center.  It was through his courier, Gemini, to his home, Moon, that revealed his location.  In some charts the Moon rules the People, in others it is the women and children, your family and home.  Certainly, we are hearing amazing points of view about the event.  The Moon is a fast moving factor, so it wouldn’t be expected, but in both charts, the Royal Wedding and this one, the Moons are connected with the Galactic Center, making international news.  Both of these events then, are connected with the Mayan Sacred Tree/Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012 calendar end/turnover, since the Sacred Tree center occurs only 6 degrees of the Galactic Center!

The six planet Aries stellium is formidable.  This is not a peacemaking combination, but a charging war!  Osama was shot twice, and it was done.  The whole operation took only 38 minutes.  The Aries Moon is Void of Course like in William & Kate’s Royal Wedding chart!  Astrologers would rarely choose a VOC Moon for an event, yet here again, we have a successful enterprise.  None of the horary astrology ‘exception’ rules apply to this chart as they did in William & Kate’s, but six planets in Aries?!  That could ram through just about anything!  And once a Taurus gets moving….  True, there is the other Void of Course caveat.  Compared to ‘nothing will come of it’ – that would be good if there are no further attacks/retaliations on America, ‘there’s nothing to stop it’ was exactly what happened!  Perhaps it’s a bit like the retrograde rule – if you are experienced with a matter, you will usually succeed during a retrograde.

Specifically, Mars doubly powerful in its own sign, conjunct lucky Jupiter, is like a powerhouse!  Mars is fast, fervent, focused, loves machines and weapons and fights, is especially courageous if the underdog.  They did lose that helicopter though.  Uranus of flight in a breaking square with Pluto endings.  Then they killed the helicopter with an explosion, Uranus, to obliterate it for security reasons, Pluto and Pluto.  That Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries has only happened two times before since 1900, Jan 6, 1940, and June 16, 1975.  This one was the day after the Royal Wedding, and the day of bin Laden’s assassination!

The Sun is at 11 degrees Taurus, in a life force breaking square with the Ascendant 15 degrees Aquarius.  In a manner, the bird is set free.  Taurus may be too slow and low in the chart to recover from this rift in the organization.  The Royal Wedding chart Sun also squares the Ascendant but in different signs!  The Ascendant/Descendants are reversed!  Theirs is 5 Leo Ascending while bin Laden’s death chart is 15 Aquarius Ascending.  I said, ‘With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.’   The Sun is leaving the sextile with Chiron, marriage, and the trine with Pluto, wealth.  No more.  And the Sun has moved up to inconjunct Saturn, another kind of life force weakening/breaking aspect, often not good for your health.  I said, ‘Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times.’

Venus and Mercury have moved just beyond the opposition with Saturn in Libra that was in the Royal Wedding chart making communications an issue, or perhaps creating and keeping a bridge of connection.  In this case it is good there was no connection; he never saw them coming!  Mercury has moved into conjunction with Jupiter, so the news is BIG!

Why the burial at sea?  Neptune the planet of the sea is in its own sign Pisces now, the sign of the sea.  29 Pisces is on the 2nd cusp, the part of the chart that has to do with one’s body.  29 Pisces is the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac, conjunct the 7 Weeping Sisters, the Pleiades.  The End.  Osama, himself a Pisces, has gone ‘home.’  Saturn is in the 8th of death, and rules the 12th of end of Spirit.  The usual options were blocked.  The ritual performed was probably the best they could do to show respect to a formidable warrior, stop further damage.  Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, suggests a death of necessity, to end the past with a significant message.  Perhaps enough time has passed that he won’t be made a martyr.

Wishing you peace and healing no matter what your circumstances are. I had a friend who was in the towers, survived 911, but her Spirit was struck. I pray, in time, losses and revenge will dissolve to forgiveness. Blessed be.

April 1998 in Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden, Pisces born March 10, 1957

Uranus Square Pluto, Royal Wedding Chart, William & Kate!

Uranus square Pluto is starting, now 5 degrees in orb.  That will keep things shaking!  Oops, maybe I shouldn’t say that.  Uranus in Aries is the rebellious young upstart compared to the wizened Pluto burrowing the depths of corporate Capricorn.  Yet Pluto is associated with journalism, follows the money, a trouble maker of a different ilk.  Power will be questioned.  Put them together and things that were thought to be impermeable may be disturbed at the deepest foundations, shaken to thunder!  Long standing old schools will have cracks in their armor, new conduits able to be begun.  Some will fall of their own finished weight, to be replaced for better benefit, or simply let go – no need to go further, job done.  Strange and wonderful new alliances will be tried and some will work and break through to whole new types of community models, building codes, laws.  Businesses once thought to be ridiculous will begin to prove themselves as the needs of the times and hidden technology comes to light to make them feasible.  Those who ride the snorty horse will fly!  Let those pawing hooves make fiery sparks! 

Another take on Uranus into Aries, square Pluto.  This aspect is unique because it happens 7 times!  It will be exact for the first time June 23, 2012, finishing Mar 17, 2015, in effect for five years!

I wrote the above with no thought of the Royal Wedding, William & Kate, in mind.  Yet this is the most powerful aspect of the out most planets, longest in duration, in their wedding chart.  It will always be in their wedding chart, but the actual aspect in the sky will culminate Mar 17, 2015.  At that point it shall have made 7 exact connections at varying but close degrees.  If their marriage is surviving at that time, they will probably make it.  So much is being said about how their marriage is giving hope in hard economic times and following the years of sadnesses around Charles, Diana, and Camilla.  Perhaps this symbolizes breaking through old patterns of the monarchy, British financial reform.

Some are using the 11 AM start of the wedding for the wedding chart;  I am using the 11:20 AM pronouncement moment – the intent of the event before your peers.  If you really want to get technical about it, use the chart when the last person signed the papers for official records after the ceremony.  The 11 AM chart has Venus of love and beauty at the top of the chart, and the wedding did start on time, and was a lovely ceremony that went off without a hitch though William did have a hard time getting the ring on Kate’s finger (Saturn opposite Mercury). 

Royal Wedding Chart, Prince William & Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

The most unique feature of the wedding chart is that simplistically, the Moon is Void of Course in Pisces square the Galactic Center.  Void of Course, VOC, is the time period from when the Moon makes its last connection with any planet and the time it enters a new sign.  There are extreme opposing points of view of what this period brings.  The traditional view is nothing will come of it, it won’t come out as expected, somewhat unpredictable.  This is great if your question is ‘Will I go to jail?’!  Rarely would a VOC Moon be chosen for a wedding chart.  Since the Moon has directly to do with fertility and a royal heir is usually wanted, this would be doubly so in this case.  It is said, ‘…the moon relating to the mother, will give a mother who was ‘not there’ so to speak. she may not have been there physically, emotionally, or she may have been even neglectful.’  Will’s mother Diana, ‘not there,’ is an important facet of their lives together.  The other view is there is nothing to stop it, nothing to stand in its way.  Hilary Clinton’s Moon (women) is VOC in Pisces in her 10th house of career and authority!  First Lady.   There are exceptions to the VOC rule, and this chart has them.  The Moon is said to ‘perform’ in Pisces – Pisces lives to osmose!  When it changes signs it will conjunct Uranus at 2 degrees Aries – free to act! Mercury and Jupiter are in an angular house, the 10th – a place determined to accomplish.  Jupiter with Mars is lucky to act!  How to resist?!!!

Still, as compelling as those aspects are, organically, the Moon, back at 26 degrees, four to go to change Signs, I would give the VOC read precedence, attending to reading the Moon for herself.  Pisces does move, but it can be ever so cleverly quietly, miniscule motion, practically invisible.  The VOC Moon is like a pause.  Preceding matters have been concluded, we’re in the done-deal zone, with perhaps a sense that it was all fated.  This is like a thoughtful, perhaps resting, reset period, in internal adjustment readying for the next Sign, the Gateway.  It is a step in a process.  A chart with lots of upcoming Lunar aspects in a Sign has many unfolding options, a rich future if favorable, is busy.  In traditional successful wedding charts, the Moon is chosen to be in trine or sextile with the Sun, Mother and Father, the Lights in harmony for fertility, full of life!  This chart has no upcoming Lunar aspects, no classic Sun/Moon, male/female connection. 

Pisces, the Moon’s Sign, is also an ending symbol, finishing symbol of maturity, being the last Sign of the Zodiac.  It too has to do with rest, contemplation, the unknown, unknowable, visioning.  To the negative side, it can be addictions, the victim/martyr, hidden agendas, fantasy versus reality.  For Kate going from commoner to Queen, it can be the dream come true, fairy tales.  Moon nurtures unconditionally; Pisces is the ultimate compassion.  It gives a dramatic counterpoint to the 5 planet Aries stellium (cluster – see below)!  Aries is noted for action, can be courageous first responders, but is not noted for ongoing care with deep sensitivity.  The Moon rules mothers, children, women in general, and Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt, in particular.  And Mother Diana was missing.  Pisces also rules being in Spirit form.  In the Abbey, closest to where William and Kate stood to take their vows, there were five chairs. Four of them were taken, by the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla … and then there was an empty chair. Was that chair for Diana?

Some are saying this ‘lost’ Moon in ‘lost Pisces’ is symbolically a way of putting away Diana’s influence. Maybe so, but she was William’s mother. That concept doesn’t work for me. This Void of Course position is akin to an ‘escape’ planet, a planet that has no connections formed to it or by it. It is in a separate state, unhindered, but ineffective, sometimes a loose cannon since there is nothing to censor its choices, no outlets to siphon off energy. It’s behavior often seems inappropriate.  It’s one thing to ‘put away’ a matter, it’s quite another to not get any benefit from the Moon other than the Sign it is in. 

Being on the brink of the Mayan calendar ending 2012, that event quite close to being at the Galactic Center, the Moon being a degree of square the Galactic Center seems significant!  Perhaps they will never take their kingdom or their kingdom, the monarchy system, will be ended, or it will be fraught with difficulties throughout their time.

Their Sun is in Taurus, a sign of fertility and stability, loyalty forever!  And there were earthy Pagan elements to the wedding.  Trees brought into the Abbey.  It was near Beltane – May Day celebration of fertility.  They had a hand wrapping – called handfasting in Pagan circles.  The archbishop who married them is a Druid!  And William’s full name is William Arthur Philip Louis, Arthur being the King of old mythical legends.

Leo Rising, the Ascendant, is a romantic Sign of Kings & Queens, great powers!  As Taurus, it is another fixed sign, cherishes its mate and takes a long time before it gives up.  It is generous, loves to teach, is thought to be selfish at times, is great fun to be around, has boundless energy!  Trine Venus, is kind, loves glorious beauty and color.  Their wedding was bright – William’s red uniform (Aries’ color).   

FIVE planets in Aries!  Aries is not famous for finishing projects nor fertility, but is a splendid champion, passionate leader!  Both Leo and Aries are athletic.  The group of five starts with Uranus of community, international connections, freedom.  Then there is Venus, love of independence, heroes, celebrities, art by fire.  The MidHeaven in Aries decides to try new things in government, laws, status.  Mercury is next, with inspiring things to say, fresh insights.  Mars and Jupiter conclude together.  Mars here is in its own Sign, racy super action, with Jupiter is legendary!  Jupiter is what we think is righteous, good luck, horses and big dogs, expansion, future plans, travel, publishing, education!  Expect these two to broaden and brighten Britain!  Aries is less famous for stopping to make agreements, more famous for spontaneous action, sometimes fiery fights, but quickly over!  One way or another, this couple will make a lot of news! 

With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.  Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times. 

Saturn at 12 Libra is at a midpoint opposition with Venus 10 Aries, MidHeaven 12 Aries and Mercury 14 Aries!  Sometimes duty will dominate, love and simply doing what you want to do will seem far, far away.  There may not always be time to talk, so many responsibilities.  And at times, it will just be good to be apart, a little room to navigate freely. 

The Sun sextile Chiron of Marriage, and semi sextile Venus of love and affection, will soften and protect them, give a sweetness.   

Sun trine Pluto is the number one US corporate wealth aspect!  If it works well in Britain too, their fortunes together are likely assured!  Saturn though square Pluto, and is going back, retrograde, to 10 degrees, never makes the exact square to Pluto at 7 degrees.  There will be financial scares, close calls, perhaps, but will never quite happen.  The issues of their country’s economics will always be of concern.

Spiritually speaking, whether by chance or chosen, a wedding chart is always perfect.  The couple has the ultimate final choice of date, time and place.  Whatever is the Soul’s agreement, agenda, the chart will show the way and be lived in all its intricacy. 

If you didn’t see it and would like to, here is a link to watch the ceremony.  At the very beginning, note the lovely greenery in the abbey!

Our Pisces New Moon was at 13 Pisces, 12:46 PM Pacific!

Pisces, The Ultimate Connection!

I hope you took a few midday moments to consider your options, use your intuitive guidelines!  Pisces is an ending sign, where we ‘know’ the most, without thinking.  We are the most present because we have super sensitivity, and know our place in the ‘web.’  We feel the needs of ourselves, others, the mighty collective.  We sway in time to the circling of the wheel, the breathing in and out, the dark and the Light.  We know this moment, as we travel through the millenia, when one motion could change the outcome of many, yet but a speck on the ethers of the universe.

The other side is when we don’t feel a thing.  Numb with fear, tired beyond desire, unconnected with Spirit.  Only some primordial nuance keeps us alive; we don’t even care why.  The animal just keeps breathing somehow.  Gather yourself.  Put yourself someplace where you can be seen, to be healed.  There are times things are beyond shame, you just need a leg up outta there.  Deepest humility, surrender, lets us find our deepest Self, that is here for whatever your purpose is.  And, even not knowing that, we still breathe.  Sometimes not knowing is a profound state, a simple clarity, being ‘clean,’ no expectations – provocative in and of itself!

Though Pisces is the very last zodiacal sign, it is also insight, epiphanies – new beginnings!  New Moons bring a stillness, a focus, a being right where you’re at – free to see – new beginnings!  Celebrate your victories and achievements, conclusions!  Start your new 27 day cycle with intent to Listen from your Soul, to the Soul in others, to the big SOUL, the Soul of All!  When you put the old mask aside, put on your Smile of Light, and let it Light your way!

March 2011, Three Perihelions, EXtreme Super Moon!

 
Three March 2011 Perihelions! Perihelions are when a planet is closest to the Sun, fastest in its orbit, charged! Probably it expresses its characteristics most strongly at this period in its orbit! March is loaded! And this is the start to the super charged 56 day Aries Stellium! These planets will have particular emphasis during that time – Mar 21 to May 15!!!!
 
• March 9 Mars Pisces perihelion, once every 2 years. Mars is that hot warrior, champion, at the frontlines with no looking back! New ground is matter of course, great to be pursued if it is a lover, but once won…. Thrives on challenge! In Pisces could be innovative music, surfing life to the fullest, oceanic sales, independence from old addictions, or going down in glory. Anger could be turned to dedication in behalf of the underdog.

 • Mar 16 Mercury perihelion, once a year. Mercury will have just conjuncted Jupiter, also at perihelion, on the 15th! In this case, both are super charged, and in Mar’s sign ARIES, so continues to carry the strong 2011 Mars/Aries theme! Mercury will tell Jupiter’s story with enthusiasm, quickly! Words may be grander, longer, created, exaggerated, played with! If you are the speaker, get to the point and keep introducing new points, keep the flow going! Be ready for peppery questions, challenges to your tenets. Keep focused. Or, it’s a great time for brainstorming! Let it loose and, for the time being, simply record. This is a grand time for teaching and opening people to new perspectives! Increase your advertising, bring on new staff to handle the events. Plan open air athletic or racing events! Jupiter and Aries both love fresh air in their hair!

• Mar 17-18 Jupiter Perihelion – The last time was May 20, 1999! That May, the Discovery Space Shuttle completed the first docking with the International Space Station! Jupiter has to do with long distance travel, discovery, adventuring, map making! Think where you could go to achieve a mission that would spark your Spirit! Go to that conference, go to a place to pray, do a walking retreat/resort, take the road less traveled, talk with the ‘real’ people, meet the Master!

Mar 19 EXtreme Super Moon!  Full Moon 28 Virgo 48

Immediately following the Mercury and Jupiter perihelions, the 2nd Super Moon of six in 2011 is building! A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is at 90% or greater of its mean closest approach to Earth (perigee). This one is the closest of all, 100%+! If there are storms, the waves are bigger, the winds faster – weather extremes like floods or snow storms.  Pisces is the believer, Virgo the skeptic – blind faith or pesty questions.  Balance and backups will help. Source your facts. Get your work done, play well. Mind your health, arrange health care. Be swift to be of kindly service where you can. Pets may need special attention. Finish up nagging projects while opening fully to the next phase!

2011 Starts with the Solar Eclipse/New Moon, Jan 4 AND the Jupiter/Uranus Conjunction at 27 Pisces, 4:52 AM Pacific!

Every 14 years we get this Jupiter/Uranus conjunction – 1969, 1983, 1997 and now, 2010-11. Jan 4 is the last of the 2010-11 set of three. The first was June 8, 2010, the second Sep 18, 2010 Jupiter and Uranus alone are explosive, wanting to be free, but with Pluto in Capricorn soberly and relentlessly cleaning house – we are clearing any unused, not likely to ever use again stuff, having freecycle giveaway fever – we are literally seeing our way clearly, making room for new things to come, and doing it!  Many people are feeling lighter, freer, bigger spirited, proud they let go, and are finally off on new ventures they can hardly believe were possible!  This extraordinary aspect brings far reaching opportunities, major multiplying of connections, magical technological breakthroughs, surprises, spiritual limitlessness!  Teaching, promotions, travel, publishing are magical!  Truth becomes more complete.  Pisces gives us what Eugene Gendlin calls a ‘felt-sense’ of things, what is known to be truest for us personally right now.  From that authentic place, comfortable because it is true and is our current potent position, we are on point!  Talk about internal combustion!  Yet, there will be challenges for people born in the late days of Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius or with planets in those degrees.  They may be pushed out of their comfort zone, both in mind and Spirit.  And that may go better than expected, as new explorations are made, opportunities perceived, potentials expanded!  Even the challenges of this aspect are more likely lucky than not!

The last two times this conjunction occurred in PISCES was in 1251, the first Shepherd’s Crusade, an unsuccessful campaign to rescue a popular French king, and 1334, no recorded events near the time of the conjunction.  That was 677 and 760 years ago!  Not so common a combo, our conjunction in Pisces.  On the previous conjunction in Pisces, Sep 18, 2010, there was no extraordinary news.  We will see what Jan 4 brings.

2010 Events during Jupiter in Pisces? Yes, some quite unique.
• Two world record art at auction sales, the topper Picasso’s Nude at $106 million!
• Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill
• Copiapo Chile 33 miners return to surface after record 69 days!
• International Space Station record time for continuously inhabited since Nov 2, 2000
• WikiLeaks releases diplomatic cables

Jupiter rules the biggest, massive, travel, long distance, Truth vs diplomacy!
Water sign Pisces rules art, oceans, places of solitude, miracles!

Not only is this conjunction a major aspect bringing in our NEW YEAR, but it is sweetened by an exact trine, that’s the best, from VENUS in Scorpio!  That means love, beauty, art, power, healing, money, and if well done, a potential more than you can imagine!  We like that, a lot!

Jan 4 Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 1:03 AM Pacific, 13 Capricorn!

This eclipse Moon squares Capricorn’s ruler Saturn 7 AM, then conjuncts Mars 3:49 PM!  The square could bring things to a standstill or there be delays.  With Mars, things can be hot – sexy, angry, on fire getting things done!  Ask how can we do it to move things along.  Career matters and reputation may figure strongly, fathers, your spiritual commitments, a mission.  Have a Plan B, and maybe a C!  Rather than dwell, have a planned distraction in mind.  Could be a related topic. 

The eclipse Sun squares Saturn right away on Jan 7.  But, it doesn’t conjunct Mars until it enters a close 5 degree conjunction with Mars starting Jan 14.   Still in conjunction though in different signs, Mars enters Aquarius Jan 15, then Sun Jan 20, now in a same sign again, Aquarius.  Traveling closely together, Mars moving fast, keeping ahead of the Sun, the exact conjunction is finally made a month after our eclipse on FEB 4th!!!!

New ventures started at this time will have mixed results.  Sun square Saturn is generally not a good launch combo – a lot of uphill work, too tired, blocked, broken, tedious, not enough money to do it justice, late, finally gives up.  I know for some the challenge is the glory, and some succeed against all odds, but it’s not for all of us.  Used well, Master Saturn puts the brakes on, waits for it, puts the finishing touches on the launching pad.  Capricorn is very careful, the instinctive goat, skirting danger, but sure footed!  The Jupiter/Uranus conjunction is incredibly lucky, and we don’t want to miss it!  It will depend on how your personal chart combines with these aspects whether you go ahead or wait.  The expression of the eclipse energy may not get going until the Sun carries it to Mars!  Once there, Mars surges forward, leading the race, doesn’t miss a step!  The exact conjunction, or very close to it, may be the culmination. 

Plus Two Perihelions!

Jupiter Perihelion May 17/18  Another reason this Jupiter/Uranus conjunction is super charged is because this is Jupiter’s Perihelion year!  It is closest to the Sun in its 12 year cycle, moving its fastest This is why it sweeps through Aries so quickly!  

Specific spice to our conjunction is that  Jan 3 at 10 AM Pacific, the day before the Eclipse, Earth will be PerihelionAnd our days are literally shorter!  In spite of winter’s slower pace, there is still survival’s urgency, the need to make our actions count.  Some believe the Perihelion moment is the true New Year chart!  Here is the chart for Santa Barbara CA:

Earth Perihelion, True New Year?

Happy Eclipse, Conjunction, and Perihelion! 
Happy NEW YEAR!
