Jan 23, 2012  See also Mars Retrograde in Virgo, since it is Stationary today, at a still point, focusing and holding power, turning regrograde!

How symbolic that we can ‘dance’ our own 龙 Dragon of Good Fortune! We can make it as we wish, fiery, furry, green, yellow, red! Small, large! It can be Merlin’s fearsome consultant. It can be the undulating Dragon of the Chinese Dragon Dance, recommended length 112 feet!

Dragons are highly esteemed in Chinese culture, symbolic of the Supernatural, and Chinese consider themselves to be Descendants of the Dragon! It bequeaths power, courage, righteousness and dignity, is known for goodness, fertility, vigilance and poise. It scares away evil spirits and is at the end of every Chinese New Year parade.

Red is a good color choice for your Dragon because it is associated with our Western zodiacal sign Aries, whose colors are red and white – their cars often those colors! Dragons are considered to be fierce and fiery, and our Aries is a quite spirited Fire sign, a rights fighter, first responder, champion! Aries figured prominently in last year’s unprecedented 56 day grouping of 4 to 6 planets in Aries. 2012 Aries’ Chinese animal is front and center! Big ideas and success are natural. A lot of energy expended can make you tired. Innovative, but frustrated, a quick temper. This year being the Water Dragon, may give more understanding, perception. Your generosity makes friends, but independent and self sufficient, you may be a loner at heart, not ask for help. As always with Aries, the Dragon is better at starting projects, less so at finishing. Delegate, be a consultant and move on to what’s next! Everyone has Aries in an area of their chart – Mars, the Aries planet – and a First House, the Aries natural house! Aries energy will be proudly and magnificently carried on from 2011, and if you are courageous enough, you can ride or fly your inner dragon! If it isn’t quite up to par, revision it – buy a red dress!

Check your calendar for exact dates, they change each year – these are previous Dragon years: 1904 * 1916 * 1928 * 1940 * 1952 Water * 1964 * 1976 * 1988 * 2000

The day before Chinese New Year, we have our Aquarian New Moon Jan 22 at 2 Aquarius 42, 11:39 PM Pacific.  This airy Moon activates 2 planets within one degree.  It reminds Aquarius’s planet Uranus that change is in the wind, to be unique, to make friends and be with groups of people who celebrate your choices!  The square Jupiter challenge is to have the confidence of your future, tell yourself the truth, let go of plans that lack life, make plans further ahead than usual!  If it aspects your chart well, you have a lucky chart and are in a lucky location for you, you just might have some winnings! 

Full Moon Feb 7 at 18 Leo 32, 1:54 PM Pacific.  Widen your choices of friends and personal performance.  Venus is at the last degree of Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac!  Complete your image, whether personal appearance, art/music, your project cover page, your home page, your list of dreams to come true.  Put some color on your palette, be the pretty bird!  Knowing Venus goes into Aries 10:01 PM, hold off on permanent change for a couple days.  Some things you suddenly won’t want anymore, there will be additions, new ideas!  Aries loves new and exciting, takes the chance, finally gets rolling!  The Sun is at the same degree as Mercury, the Messenger, so get the good word out, write the letter, place the ad!  Tell people what you want.  Check your melodramatic attitude.  Though entertaining, being demanding or pretentious, critical or contemptuous, mindless tantrums, aren’t going to cut it.  Give tons of appreciation and affection to yourself, and in glory to others!  Dance and sing!  Things are going to be ok.  Or not.  But you can handle it, and very well, too!

Retrogrades are when a planet appears to go ‘backwards’ from the point of view of Earth – famous for reversals or events not completing as planned.  In 2012 have our regular outer planet retrogrades and Mercury 3 times as usual, but in 2012, Venus and Mars also retrograde!  They do every other year, and it’s their turn, right now, Mars!

Mars Retrograde

Chinese New Year Day, Jan 23 to April 14  Mars retrogrades 23 Virgo to 3 Virgo.  During that time, Mercury retrogrades Mar 12 to April 4, from 6 Aries back to 23 Pisces!  So we have a double inner planet retrograde!  Mar 3, during the Mars retrograde, Mars makes its opposition Sun at 13 Pisces/Virgo, and is closest to Earth in its 2 year orbit.  Mars would usually be 2 months in a sign, but with this retrograde, Mars entered Virgo Nov10, 2011, stays in Virgo 7 months until entering Libra July 3! 

Mars is not a back seat planet!  But when retrograde either will go limp, or leap back!  It may be surprisingly shy, or because it is reviewing and more sure the second time around, come back with more strength than anticipated!  It could be unexpectedly patient, willing to rework a project, or frustrated and stomps off, or without even thinking about it, twice as fast, leaving you in the dust!  Virgo is not noted for its athleticism, though they often love walking outdoors.  Dutiful, yes, but not necessarily robust.  So this may be just the juice it needs to get going after all.

Cars, mechanical items, the fast track, new, in front and center, leadership, sports, hot sex in a moment, are all Mars talents!  Virgo is the sign of taking care of things, maintenance, organizing, accounting for cost of time and materials per returns on your investment.  Percentages count.  They are a precursor of a sort, to Libra’s fair balance formulas!  Virgo concerns tenants and pets.  Be gentle, or get it up if you have been neglecting things.  Time to clean house, wash the car, do some trials on new health regimes, push through minutiae, exercise with religion, but in general it’s not a time for elective surgeries!  If you decide to, choose a veteran health professional with an impeccable record.  Put in that new garden, make plans to redo the office.  But only do what you can pay for happily if it has to be redone!  And don’t do things you can’t take back, like first time sex!  Get receipts and know your returns policy – this aspect is almost 3 months long.  If you are doing any kind of remodeling, have all parties date and sign off on changes.  This can be a precision aspect, work it well!

Mars in Virgo goes well with other Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn.  One lumbers, the other hesitates, so this will be encouraging as details of progress fall into place.  This Mars will challenge the other mutable signs, Gemini/Sagittarius, and Pisces.  Gemini would like to chat about it first, Virgo just wants to work.  Sag says where could we go?  Virgo says just do it.  Pisces doesn’t necessarily want to work at all, at least not hard, but Virgo is a steadfast worker, last at the office.   Cautions to the Mutable signs (Gemini/Sagittarius and Virgo/Pisces), Mars can overdo, and be too quick on the trigger!  Cancer will be glad the housework is getting done, and Scorpio will see that the job pays off.  Blessed be.

Though Jan 1 is our calendrical New Year, Jan 4  Earth’s perihelion, when it is closest to the Sun during the year, is thought by some to be the true New Year!  For others yet, it is Winter Solstice, Dec 21, marking the return of the Sun King!  Whichever you celebrate, or if you celebrate them all, an equal opportunity celebator, may your New Year be loving, wise, healthy, abundant,  joyous!  If you are a Dragon, it’s your year!  For us astrologically minded, we are thinking it is a very eventful year to come – the Venus Transit Sun, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn exact for the first times, our Presidential Elections, 12:12:12, the 26,000 year turnover of the Mayan Calendar!   Blessed be!  See the Important 2012 Astro*Logical Highlights!  I’m so glad we are all connected.  This is a journey to be shared!

Jan 8 Full Moon at 18 Cancer/Capricorn, 11:30 PM Pacific, our first of 2012!  It starts the 2012 Lunar year at 18 degrees, the closest and only planet in the mix is Mars at 21 Virgo!  The Moon is sextile Mars, the Sun is trine!  Looks like motivation, leadership, exercise make the difference.  In practical Virgo, it could be organizing your work, taking health matters into your own hands, getting a new pet?!  Enlisting the help of your family may cost less, or simply hiring a helper may keep peace.  There may be tender feelings with Mama Moon in her own water sign Cancer, so gentle down your approaches, soften your voice.  Capricorn can seem too businesslike at times, but gets the job done; Mars is so gung-ho there is no particular thought, just spontaneous action.  If Cancer has been dawdling, eating too much, Mars and Cap may be just the ticket to get out and get something going!  Often even a small start is all it takes to tip the balance!

Getting ready for the 2012 Mars Retrograde Jan 23 to April 13 Pacific times!  Mars retrogrades in earth sign Virgo from 23 degrees back to 3.  Get your machinery in order, including your vehicle, bicycle if you commute with it.  Clean things up that could cause a slow down or lost time looking for lost items.  When you put that item where you will be sure to find it, perhaps put notes in a couple of places to help you locate it in case your thinking changes by when you need it.  Get orders filled, have enough stock on hand as you can anticipate to keep things going smoothly so you don’t have to wait for delayed materials.  We are talking 11 weeks’ worth.  See your health advisors.  Take care of any pet matters.  Take care of complications with new projects, employer/employee matters, tenancy issues, bookkeeping.  Some of this will depend on which house(s) and which of your planets are activated in your personal chart, so let’s take a look at that for you.

Mercury Direct!

Mercury at station in Aries, getting ready to turn direct, has been in a long opposition with Saturn in airy Libra. It has been in a 3 degrees or less range that started Apr 14, continues until Apr 29! It comes very close, less than ½ a degree of being in exact opposition, when it turns Direct! Mars made its opposition to Saturn on the 18th, tugging reluctant old Saturn along to new adventures. April 19, Mercury conjuncted fiery Mars, ideas in action, and now is chatting them both up, wondering how the new things can be done. Keep the practical working partnerships, add independent new projects and people. Oppositions can stretch things to the limit, sometimes breaking connections that are fragile, spent, not meant, not able. That can be best, a great relief. There may be sadness, and happiness that the dance was tried yet failed. Other times oppositions act practically like a sling shot, propelling us to the furthest amazing reaches, far beyond our ‘normal’ sphere! Life is NEVER the same again, and, perhaps, happily so!!! Let go the too old, and let the new juice up your circuits!

As reality has struck close to home, this opposition has been sobering for some. It is also in a fading formation, a T Square with Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is now 5 degrees behind, but still within range to remind us, have a hangover effect. The two Saturn square Plutos of recent times, Jan 31, 2010 and Aug 21, 2010, were part of the hard economic aspects we have had, for some us quite personal, even indelible in our memory. If it’s broken and can’t be fixed, be wise, put it behind you, move on. If restructuring is called for, get reeducated, get an expert to help you mend matters in a very good way. Make a difference and don’t delay.

We are now on the threshold of Chiron entering Pisces for 7 years!

SEVEN years! Those 7 years will be in the same time Neptune is in its own sign Pisces, which starts April 4 for 15 years!  That happens only every 168 years, and WE get to live it!!!!  Double, even triple , magic of misty watery Pisces!  And Neptune enters Pisces during the super charged firey Aries Stellium!  It’s going to be off to a tremendous start!  What it dreams, it does!  Complete and perfect intuition inspires instant responsive positive action!  Pisces can be shy, even timid, until it gets a cause to live for!  Then, by God and Great Spirit, things happen with bells on!  I hope you are graced with inspiration like none other, that fills your Whole Soul!

Jupiter left Pisces Jan 22, now passing the baton to Chiron.  Jupiter was the precursor, looking for truth (Wikileaks), opening up then focusing on the point of selection, looking for the good in all ways.  Chiron is considered to be a wound that happens, or a wound that needs healing.  And, is considered to be a healer; it knows how because it has been there.  Which begets the teacher! If you know how to heal, you can show others.  Pisces loves being the savior or being saved, so it looks like a good fit. Spiritual business will be done.

Healings may be more subtle, invisible, invincible in Spirit.  Spiritual wounds of feeling forsaken, misuse of spiritual power or powers, fear to step out of the shadows of past life ‘mistakes’ or punishments, living without mission, or matters of mercy, may be kinds of healings that occur both to oneself, and, or in behalf of others.  They may somehow find mending, a quelling of misspent imagination, an inner reweaving of the strings of life as twined with others’ hearts, in a sensitive moment of seeing from a different facet or vantage point of compassion long-awaited.  There is a gentling, and yet a tsunami of merging, not just looking at a person or situation, but seeing it as if you were the other person!

The Magi astrologers tell a different, or perhaps an additional story.  They say Chiron is the #1 marriage factor in charts, love heals, and is a great business planet!  Partners make more money!  Marrying in Pisces is a cautions affair however.  The worst is just plain denial, then the words ‘I just can’t believe it!’ If your friends say you are missing the signals, I would get the credit check and give it some time to prove out.  The other side is marriage made in heaven.  In surety.  A gift of union Spirit-made.  May you walk in Beauty.

Businesses that are of a Pisces nature may flourish!  Anything ocean related, musics and arts, dancing Spiritually, retreats, magic and intuition, fine wines to feet treatments, computer programming, films, theatre, visionary repertoire, tending eyes and how we see, conscious dreaming!  Throw in the spice of Chiron, and we are adding a business of curing whats needed in any of those fields, a marriage blend of any of those elements, the consultant, coach, seminars that uplift our goals and ideals!  Blessed be.

Chiron enters Pisces Feb 8, Neptune April 4!  Marriages, healing, business, magic!  It will be a spiritual renaissance for those willing, ready, and able! Music and art will fill new dimensions.  Compassion and insight will be called for as the world tussles with resurrection after Pluto in Capricorn topples the old ways to the ground!  Stand tall, Live deep, LOVE well!

Please refer back to Chiron from Pisces, back into Aquarius, July 20 to Feb 8, 2011!

What a difference that will be from Jupiter in oceanic watery Pisces!  Pisces, known to be magical, meditational, artistic especially with visionary art and all kinds of music, intuitive with computer software, a spiritual fisherman, a traveler upon the waves of ocean and mind, sadly a magician of denial, also has boundless compassion and dedication, giving life and Soul for their beliefs. 

Jupiter will be our first planet into Aries this year.  It’s been 12 years since it was there before, and this time, since it is also Perihelion (nearest the Sun in its orbit), it makes a swift sweep through, in a breathtaking 4 months, 13 days, Jan 22 to June 4!  Usually it takes a whole year through a sign!

Aries - Breath of the Fire of Life!

Aries doesn’t make moods, they make motion! Instant perception, immediate response, uncannily right. Like first responders, they can save your life! They are great consultants. Bring them in, record the insights, let them go on to the next. They just gave you their gift. Passion and fire are their mediums.

Jupiter, planet of Sagittarius, loves to travel, the faster the better!  Skiing, skating, racing, hiking to far high places suits. In Aries they can’t wait to get started and want to get there first! If you see them coming, step aside! Jupiter has a great sense of direction, purpose, a taller long view, that can take Aries more potently into its future.  Aries is independent and Jupiter likes freedom to roam. Great combo for them, might not make their lovers or family so happy.  Promotions, publicity and publishing will be red hot! Aries has just the spark to push it over the threshold!

Jupiter thinks it is right, and Aries is willing to defend or apply the principle. If there are anger issues, this may be the time to get a grip, learn how to use your energy in a good way. There needs to be care here. Jupiter can be too blunt, feelings can get way hurt.  It may be costly in time to repair, or heartbreakingly irreparable. Not good. The axis Aries challenges is Cancer/Capricorn, Mother, Father, children, people of tender connections. The other side of Aries is Libra, our marriage mates, partners in business, legal proceedings. Be smart, savvy. If you don’t know how to hold yourself in battle, get a go between, a counselor, an attorney, whatever makes sense. The instinct of Aries is to do it all yourself. A wise person can do both, get help, and do it yourself.

Think of children born with this placement of Jupiter! Natural born leaders, fearless teachers, but you better grab the info quickly, because they already see another possibility! Keep them entertained, give them challenges they can achieve so their Spirit won’t be broken. When they are doing what they love, they will have broad minds, and a tremendous focus!

Jupiter, the WayShower, makes the Pilgrimage; Aries lights the Way – torch and candle!  On Point, Blessings on your Journey!

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!

PART 1, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights!

Sign Changes, Jupiter Transits, Stelliums – Planets in the Same Sign, 56 day Super Aries Stellium, Bowls!

Some of these you will definitely want to mark on your calendar, be aware of, plan ahead for! So, with your appointment book/calendar in hand….

Early Year Sign Changes – Jan 22 to Apr 4 we have five!
This will be a time of changing needs, no final decisions, be flexible, seek what is better, be proactive!

Jupiter changes signs every year, but this year’s Aries into Taurus sweep happens in a breathtaking 4 months, 13 days, Jan 22 to June 4!
Feb 8 Chiron enters Pisces
Mar 11 Uranus enters Aries joining Jupiter
Apr 4 Neptune enters its own sign PISCES (only once every 168 years, and we get to experience it!), Aug 4 it retrogrades back into Aquarius

Transits to Transits, Jupiter’s Blessings!
Jupiter is the only planet that makes aspects to the outer planets in 2011 and makes two more, to finish its sweep, Valentine’s Day and Mar 12 of 2012! Quite a run, and a great lead into 2012! Jupiter’s Luck is keenly sought! Time for marriage and business charts! Call me to help you pick the best, specific for YOU!

        Date          Aspect          Occurrence
+/-    Jan 4   Conjunct Uranus    3rd
—    Feb 25   Square Pluto           3rd
—    Mar 28   Opposite Saturn     3rd
+    June 8   Sextile Neptune    Once
+     July 2   Sextile Chiron          1st
++   July 7   Trine Pluto               1st
++  Oct 28   Trine Pluto              2nd
+     Dec 6   Sextile Chiron         2nd

Stelliums, Planets in the Same Sign (I’m including Chiron)
There are many 4 planet groups in 2011, in Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus, and Sagittarius, but none to compare with the phenomenal ARIES Stellium: 4 to 6 planets in ARIES from Mar 21 to May 15! 56 Days! From April 1 to May 11, there are continuously 5 and 6! That’s half of our 10/11 planets! Think of the charts of children born at that time!

The long duration of this stellium is what makes it so phenomenal! The anchor planets are the slow mover Uranus and faster Jupiter, with Mars on its 2 year cycle, and the annual planets in turn, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and the Moon twice, at the beginning and end! Part of what keeps it going is that Mercury Retrogrades Mar 30 to Apr 23, remaining in Aries longer than would usually be!

Aries is THE highly spirited fire sign, on-the-spot intuition, split second reaction times! Their courage and fearlessness are totally inspiring, leadership is something they do without thinking, it’s normal. They love new ventures, put their whole heart into it, and never look back. If one thing doesn’t work, no crying and moaning, nary an apology, next! They do put their partners on pedestals, and being only human, oops, there are falls from grace. Sigh. But, hey, onward, right?! Pick yourself up and off you go! There is a simpleness of intent, childlike exuberance, sometimes naïve, but well intended. Help them if you can keep up.

Aries Super Stellium High Points!
April 1, Mars, the planet of Aries, enters Aries, making that 5 planets in Aries!
April 2, the Moon joins, making that now 6 planets in Aries!
The Aries NEW MOON is April 3, just as powerful as it can be!
April 4 the Moon enters Taurus, we’re back to 5 planets in Aries.
April 20/21, the Sun enters Taurus as Venus enters Aries, and the amazing 5 planet Aries stellium continues!
April 29 the Moon joins making it SIX, again!!!!
May1 Moon enters Taurus, so we are back to 5
May 11 Mars enters Taurus and we are back to 4!

Feb 3-4     SIX planet Aquarian New Moon stellium, Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!
Mar 3-5     SIX planet Pisces New Moon stellium
Sep 26-28     5 planet Libra, New Moon stellium

PART 2, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights! 

Retrogrades, Chiron’s New Pattern, Six Eclipses, Occultations, Planetary Extremes, Super Moons, Moon Void of Course, Chinese Year of the Rabbit!

Some of these you will definitely want to mark on your calendar, be aware of, plan ahead for! So, with your appointment book/calendar in hand….

Retrogrades Few  The usual outer planet retrogrades, no Mars or Venus retrogrades, Mercury 3 times as usual – Mar 30 to April 23 in Aries, Aug 2 to 26 in Leo/Virgo, and Nov 23 to Dec 13 in Sagittarius.

Chiron’s new pattern, retrograde degrees start overlapping each other. That means sometimes a planet in your chart may be activated 5 times rather than only the 3 times as in the past. The only other planets that do this are Pluto and Neptune. So their activations can, at times, be dense, and intense, repetitive, taking 3 years – the year before they are exact and the 2 years they are exact. If they activate planets in very close degrees, more than one planet at a time, in your chart, it can be intense indeed, complicated, at those times. If they activate a string of planets in your chart one after another, issues can cascade, one to the next, for years and years. You live through things longer than you would ever have thought possible. These are those lawsuits that go on and on, health matters that frazzle your Spirit, children that don’t get over things and have trouble growing up, couples that fight for years never-ending. If you are in such a sequence, get support, see your part in things, get informed, take especially good care of yourself. Call me for a reading, I’ll check for you.

SIX Eclipses in a year happens every 4.5 years or so, and we have a Unique Dark Moon!  Four of the six 2011 eclipses are Metonic returns of the eclipses of 1992, repeating on the same dates and degrees. The other two repeat the date and degrees of the New Moons! While many eclipses repeat at 19-year intervals, some do not. Eclipse Frequency

Jan 4 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 13 Capricorn, same day as Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces!
June 1 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 11 Gemini
   Jupiter enters Taurus, sextiles Neptune between the 6.1 and 6.15 eclipses, all of them preceding Summer Solstice!
June 15 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 24 Sagittarius
July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon 9 Cancer
July Two New Moons, July 1 & July 30! Call the second New Moon of July what you will! Dark Moon, Black Moon, Secret Moon, Spinner’s Moon, Finder’s Moon. The second one of the month is considered especially potent for magical practice.
Two eclipses during Mercury Retrograde! 
      Nov 23 Mercury Rx
      Nov 24 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 2 Sagittarius, on ThanksGiving Day!

      Dec 6 Jupiter sextile Chiron 2nd time
      Dec 10 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 18 Gemini
      Dec 13 Mercury Direct

Occultations are Eclipses, just not Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in conjunction in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.

Planetary Extremes, March Lineup!
Jan 3 Perihelion, Earth closest Sun; July 4 Aphelion Earth farthest from Sun.
Mar 9 Mars Perihelion, every 2 years
Mar 16  Mercury Perihelion, annual
Mar 17 Jupiter Perihelion, every 12 years!  This is the big one that is super charging 2011, the Aries Stellium!  Click here for more!
Mar 19 closest Perigee, Moon to earth; Apr 2 is the furthest Apogee, Moon’s distance from Earth. Quakes, volcanic eruptions, major storms, high tides are often at perigees. Apogees can be calm to the point of malaise.

6 Super Moons, one Extreme, 100% +

Moon Void of Course April 4 to Aug 4, as Neptune enters Pisces, no outer planets, that’s Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn, and Jupiter, will be in late degrees, all are in new signs! That means the Moon will often have long Void of Course times when no planets are in late degrees of any of the signs. From the time a planet makes its last major aspect, a conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition, until it enters a new sign, is the time it is Void of Course, VC. The general interpretation is nothing will come of anything started during VC time. You go shopping for an item that is regular stock, and they are out of it that day! Sometimes it’s a good thing nothing comes of your effort, better left unsaid, so to speak, or, oops, thank God you didn’t do that! But not a preferred time for the interview for the job you really want. Yet, another interpretation is there is nothing to stop the matter, it’s a done deal. If the Moon’s last aspect was classically favorable, I would lean toward declaring a positive outcome for action taken. Generally, I would postpone if possible.
