Leos ~ Magical Hearts, Uplifting Spirits!

Leo Meghan Markle Harry's wife Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle, Leo born Aug 4, 1981, 12 degrees Leo! Meghan went from her parent’s kid to actress – best-known role, Rachel Zane, on the American legal drama series Suits, to Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry’s wife! She has Cancer rising and Moon and three other planets in Libra.

Leos are noted for their crowning glory hair, their inimitable personal style, charming and young-at-heart romantic presence, athletic prowess! They are often regarded as having a heart of gold, being generous even when they don’t have a lot themselves.

As mates they can sweep you off your feet, put you first on their list, overwhelm you with their creds and prezzies! Give them prezzies and you have their heart. At times they appear to be selfish, though being themselves is important to them. It’s like they run their own experiments to see exactly what that has become to be! They are ardent lovers and want you to enjoy your time together. Or they are off on a strenuous, possibly dangerous, adventure and can’t always be with you. But, ninety nine point they come home the hero and so happy to see you! You forgive them everything and anything when you see the beautiful roses!

They are generally awesome parents, concerned with your physical and personal well-being, want your schooling to be the best, and may decide to personally homeschool. They certainly do a little teaching themselves. They are naturals and can’t help it. They will attend all your events as possible and are the loudest parent cheering you on. And when you graduate, OMG, they are SO proud! They may have been a little domineering to get you there, demanding, but they have such confidence in you it’s really a compliment! They truly believe in you. But there are times you have to keep clear whose life you’re living – yours or theirs. Teenage time can be a trial for both of you. Stay true.

Whether work or doing what they love, Leos want to be number one, and work hard to make it so. They may be the CEO or the labor leader. They give it their all, until they don’t. If they take time off, they are the laziest lion at the beach, snoozing and snoring, oblivious. When they rest they give that their all too, LOL. But, it’s not unusual for them to give prime performances and receive awards. They have a flair that makes you notice, they have big spirits that call you to follow, keep your attention. You want to be like them! They make extraordinary color, use light and shadow-shape sequences that open your senses beyond any experience you ever had before. It really is magical.

Leos are athletic and enjoy being in their bodies! Prowess looks good on them. They stretch like a cat, run pretty fast, dance like crazy tossing their manes with abandon! Their fire sign health is superlative. When they do get sick it is usually a Class A crisis, could be a high fever, their heart, a painful back, sport injury. And they are terrible patients. First they make the most of all that attention, but when the balance shifts, fewer visitors, and they are more healthy again, then they just wanna get out of bed and go do something! Showing weakness for long is not their cup of tea, and they can be stubborn about therapies, physical or emotional. The healer has to be very clever to keep that client interested, listening, not to upset their ego. You have to watch them like a hawk or they get into foods not on their diet. Don’t put chocolates or ice cream anywhere in sight!

On the other hand, Leos are fine Doctors! How happy it makes them to be the hero of our very lives! Vitality, zest for living makes a huge difference. You can be sure, even if your Dr is full of him/herself, thinks he’s God, he is going to be good at what he does and you are in good hands! But some really understand your plight and have those hearts of gold. You heal exceptionally quickly in their inspiring care. Blessed for sure.

Parties? Oh, yes! They do have enthusiasm! They send invitations, give orders, and that party is whipped into shape toot suite! Romantic lighting and decorations, dance music, excellent food and drink, in the summer, ice cream! Leos like acting, so costumes, dress up is always fun, who shall I be today?! Or come as you are! It’s not uncommon for Leos to have Leo parties for all their Leo friends! Party games get lots of laughs. High spirits! Possibly a famous glamorous guest. Memorable, of course.

There is no doubt Leos are special Light Souls. Their shining Spirits, their courage, a steady willingness to bring you with them, to share their knowledge with you, inspires us every day. They praise our smallest efforts and tell us we can do it. Their smile lights a room and the whole event changes when they walk in. They have stage presence, or the ability to act like they do, even when they are scared!

Some super famous Leos! JK Rowling/Daniel Radcliffe (four planets in Leo!), Barack Obama, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Chris Hemsworth, Amelia Earhart, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Mick Jagger (four planets in Leo!), Halle Berry – first and only woman of color to win an Oscar for a leading role (Mercury, Moon/Sun in Leo – a double Leo!)!

“Go boldly and honestly through the world. Learn to love the fact that there is nobody else quite like you.”
― Daniel Radcliffe, born July 23, 1989

Leo 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Late evening to dawn on August 11, 12 and 13, 2018, the Perseids! 

The Perseid meteor shower is perhaps the most beloved meteor shower of the year for the Northern Hemisphere. It’s a rich meteor shower, and it’s steady. Best of all, the slender waxing crescent moon will set at early evening, providing deliciously dark skies for this year’s Perseid meteors. These swift and bright meteors radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero. As with all meteor shower radiant points, you don’t need to know Perseus to watch the shower; instead, the meteors appear in all parts of the sky. These meteors frequently leave persistent trains. Perseid meteors tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn. In 2018, the peak night of this shower will be totally free of moonlight. Predicted peak in 2018: the night of August 12-13, but try the nights before and after, too, from late night until dawn.

Don’t rule out early evenings, either. As a general rule, the Perseid meteors tend to be few and far between at nightfall and early evening. Yet, if fortune smiles upon you, you could catch an earthgrazer – a looooong, slow, colorful meteor traveling horizontally across the evening sky. Earthgrazer meteors are rare but memorable. Perseid earthgrazers can only appear at early to mid-evening, when the radiant point of the shower is close to the horizon.

Leo 2018 Timeline!

2018 Leo hosts the third and last magical dreams-come-true Jupiter trine Neptune Aug 19, two of our three 2018 summer eclipses, the Perseids Meteors, and 24 days of the Mars/Mercury double Retrograde July 25 to Aug 18!

July
22 Happy Leo!
25 Mercury in Leo starts double Retrograde
27 Full Thunder/Hay Moon TOTAL Lunar ECLIPSE, 1 Hr 43 Mins!

August
11 New Moon Solar Eclipse
12 Perseids Meteor Shower
18 Mercury DIRECT!
19 Last Jupiter trine Neptune
22 Happy Virgo!

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

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

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. See the Timetable please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! Literally months of retrograde in 2018!

With the multiple sign changes and months of retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

By August 2019, four of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn, a peerless appraiser, if behind us, is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget the sleeping, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Leo 2018 – August 2019!

Leo Woman Traveler Luggage Heels

Leos were little commanders even as toddlers and they are still going to the top!

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

Pluto and Leo may have financial contentions. Leo wants to spend it, lots of it; Pluto may need to limit the spending. Or, Pluto’s portfolio is so substantial, it’s no problem. Of course, Leo is often the star, and Pluto may be jealous and possessive, and/or manage your vast funds astutely! Leo is thinking, ok, as long as the money keeps rolling in…but eventually can only be themselves no matter what Pluto wants. Inheritances can happen, but often because of a sad loss. Sometimes part of the loss is bitter battles over who gets what. Or there is no will. Do make yours. Cautions about secrets. Leo can splash it about, but there may be a price if Pluto is wounded, or can blackmail if Leo has been naughty. Leos have their pride and Pluto sees their deepest flaws. Pluto may call you to face up, and be of great help with your healing process if you let them. Trust on both sides is needed. Leo and Capricorn are often a great combination, each so proud of the other. Capricorn may hold the reigns more tightly than Leo’s fiery spirit can bear, and be too grinchy with the funds. Let loose a bit or you may lose your Leo! Let them warm your heart, especially when you get a little scared. Leos often find it hard to admit fear in themselves or others, so talk it through with a friend, before you talk with your Leo, and do your best. They do admire courage!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Leo is enthralled with magic, magnificent dreams, and are ardent fans of heroes and heroines! Leo is led to support causes for those in need, inspired by Neptune’s compassion. Neptune can diffuse our intentions, a seeming confusion, as our consciousness expands. Our senses extend beyond any dimension we ever imagined, and we are freed to be illuminated. Sometimes Neptune’s web is strong and holds us until we are at full strength. Quite a difference from Leo’s stage, Neptune calls on us to take time out, recenter, respect solitude. Yoga and sports works well! As a result, Leo and Neptune may find themselves in league producing the concert of epic proportions!

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

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

Leo finds itself in the exotic position of being the sign opposite Uranus’s sign Aquarius, and inspired by its fellow fire sign Aries! Just those last two degrees, 28 and 29 are all that’s left. Though fire signs sometimes seem impervious, wrapped up in their own doings, uninterruptible or you get singed without them even realizing it, these last two degrees sense the urgency of finishing what was started. The summary needs to be made and all needs to be accounted for. There needs to be a peace, a recognition of the achievements and people who got us there and to make us aware of future possibilities. Leo is the perfect party arranger and Master of Ceremonies for the event! It’s significant for the group. They all have become leaders! It’s inspiring!

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

Leo and Uranus like to be stand out people! Uranus is ahead of its times and Leo loves to take the lead! But turtle Taurus?! Hmpf. Ok. Taurus provides a comfy place and funding, sure. A massage? You bet! Might use hot stones, magnets, a warm sauna, or electrotherapy. I’ll try it. Once Taurus has them relaxed and listening, ask those Leos questions about our environment, take them for a barefoot walk in the woods. Let them feel the breeze, hear the birds, look at plants and trees. What about food production? How well and what are they eating – organic? Do they own things they love or are they possessed by what they own? What about children? Uranus in Taurus is electric, but steadfast. These questions don’t go away. We are perhaps unsettled, even shocked, but we will be moved. And the weather will change.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries. It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Leo is the sign of physicians/teachers, and Chiron is the Healer/teacher and Pisces the Savior! Chiron was known for chronic diseases, while Leo excels in sports medicine! While connected with Chiron, Leo will probably bring in the physical therapist, move your mind and spirit, get you back on your feet in no time! Pisces is the sensitive and helps Leo ‘see’ the patient through the patient’s own eyes. Synthesized healing and teaching become specialized. Remarkable results. The doctor/teacher may marry the patient/student!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires; Leo has his back! Leo does also have the lazy lion pace, so won’t always be ready on time, but Aries will leave you behind, and Leo wants to see! So off they go! Don’t count on this Aries to stay long though anyway. Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Leo can see how to be more independent and carries on in Chiron’s behalf, perhaps funding the new medical research center.

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

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

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can be a staunch advisor, mentor to grateful Leo. Saturn can tune up your timing, reputation, finances, how you build your relationships. It can be a nemesis if cutting your funding, or job. Your work may be more demanding, and you may be honored by being asked to take charge of the project or the company. Your family may be expanding, your responsibilities along with that, or you wish it would and sadly it doesn’t. Elders or children may need more of your time and care. Leo may find themselves realizing they have become excellent performers and teachers over the years, have come further than they ever thought they would. Relationships have brought many changes and rewards throughout years of learning. Saturn helps Leo be less self indulgent, use your time more wisely. You might lose some weight and feel so sleek!

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Leo is both excited and pleased to have been asked along and at other moments nonplussed, wondered what the heck have I gotten into?! Sometimes Scorpio has a hidden agenda that you didn’t sign up for, LOL! But the scenery is terrific, the temples are profoundly life changing, generally health is good, and Jupiter in Scorpio is an adept healer/prophet. Cheaper than the doc at the hospital. Leo will have so many tall stories to tell, teaching stories too. Do take lots of images and video so they will actually believe you! Dancing! Jupiter may agree to fund you. Ask for the max! There may be a lover, but not a keeper, depending on what else you have going in your own chart at the time. Good luck!

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Oh, Gawd! It’s a trip of a lifetime and Leo is going! Jupiter ups the amps and the trip is more expensive, longer, grander, you meet famous people and there are excellent accommodations! Start planning and saving NOW! Get the best you can! This is not the time to be so frugal and virtuous! (Should one ever say that to a Leo?!) You have one year to do that trip, or trips! When Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2019, believe me, things won’t be the same – business trips on a budget. Leo likes to be comfy, often at home, so be clear if you are considering a Jupiterian/Sagittarian for a mate. You may be swept off your feet by this good looking, impressive stranger, but they are likely to be gone, with or without you. You both best enjoy traveling or you will be a lonely Leo, and we can’t have that! They do keep you on your feet while they are around and your health will likely be A+! They will be missed but, oh, the memories!

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

Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Cancer Benedict Cumberbatch

From Shakespeare to Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch often plays roles he believes in. Born July 19, 1976, he has Sun in Cancer exactly square his Moon, Cancer’s planet, in activist Aries! In spite of a childlike innocent face, Benedict has an impressive array of accomplishments, and participates in many causes. Cancer is the most feminine of all the signs. She is children, Mothers, women of all ages. Benedict considers himself a feminist, as do many Cancerian men. He made his acting debut as a female, Titania, Queen of the Fairies, in A Midsummer Night’s Dream when he was 12. See his chart!

Mercury, Saturn and Venus within 4 degrees of each other in Leo give Benedict a regal and commanding bearing. The combination has given him a powerful way with words, and he has done a lot of voice roles, animation, narration and loves radio. His background in acting is solid, traditional and extensive. He knows what he’s doing with a Master of Arts in Classical Acting. Saturn’s formality really suits a Brit; he’s famous in his own land in his own time! Saturn has brought further honors. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2015 for his services to the performing arts and to charity.

Astrologically he has success written in his chart! His Sun sextiles Jupiter – personal fame, in Taurus – enduring celebrity. Saturn and Venus sextile Pluto – mega wealth, plus trine Neptune – acting. His Midheaven is Cancer the sign of the Public. He has a sense of the pulse of the people, especially women. Sun in the 10th is often well known.

The Leo stellium trine Neptune also accounts for his affinity with Buddhist philosophy, meditation and mindfulness. On the family front, Valentine’s Day 2015, independent Moon in Aries Benedict married his sweetie of 17 years, Sophia Hunter! Finally! They are now the proud parents of adorable Gemini Christopher Carlton.

After portraying Stephen Hawking in 2004, he has been an ambassador, and in 2015 patron, for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. In 2003, Cumberbatch joined the Stop the War Coalition protest in London against the Iraq War. Together with Prince Philip, Cumberbatch presented 85 young people with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at St. James Palace March 2014. Benedict joined Prince William and Ralph Lauren at Windsor Castle for a cancer awareness and fundraising gala. July 2013 he officiated at the same-sex marriage of friends. For International Women’s Day 2014, he was a signatory of Amnesty International’s letter to UK Prime Minister David Cameron for women’s rights in Afghanistan. Cumberbatch is a founding member of the “Save Soho” campaign which aims “to protect and nurture iconic music and performing arts venues in Soho.

Benedict’s contributions as an actor and philanthropist are enormous. Excerpts above from Wikipedia are just some of the highlights. May he continue to serve in great happiness.

Cancer 2016 Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Mark your calendars! Per Space.com the next exciting astronomical event is the Aug. 11-12: The Perseid meteor shower! The Perseids are considered among the best of the annual meteor showers, thanks to their reliability and high rates of up to 90 “shooting stars” per hour. This year’s peak will occur well after the moon — which will be just past first quarter — sets around midnight. [A good viewing dark sky!] There is also a possibility of a meteor outburst, which might produce an enhanced display this year. [Amazing Perseid Meteor Shower Photos of 2015]

Cancer TimeLine!

Happy Summer Solstice! Mercury is moving forward, Mars is still retrograde until June 29. We finished Jupiter square Saturn, did the second Saturn square Neptune, and Jupiter’s last mega trine Pluto is less than a week away, June 26!

The next outer planet combinations are August 12 and 13 when Jupiter finishes opposite Chiron and inconjunct Uranus! This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. 2016 opened with the second of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with the first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron – different sign, reversed aspects! What we are doing now paves the way for the next vantage point. In Libra we can incorporate our findings and these new living skills into our relationships! See more!

June 20 Happy Gemini Blue Full Strawberry Moon
Happy Cancer! Happy Summer Solstice!

Continuing abiding Aspects

  • Uranus and Pluto continue in a close range square. Though no exact aspect will be formed again, the reminder of happenings since 2010 remain with us, many taking years to work through.
  • Chiron & Uranus continue in their many years long journey closely together in the background…. More


2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Cancer!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Pluto has been opposite Cancer, relentlessly scanning and scouring and at times scowling, LOL, clearing Cancer of a past it never wants to give up! Eventually some old postures are just spent, every bit of what can be is wrung out of them, not even enough tatters to wash again. Too tired to hold on any longer. Some things just need a bit of spit and polish to shine right back up again, strong and resilient. Collections are thinned, as upgrades are made. Emotions are acknowledged, some comforted, some relieved to be released. Some timing and cycles are freshened and restored, blockages removed, now humming. There may be temptations, but don’t cross the line. The power of Fathers, age, law & wisdom are more accepted. Some Fathers leave, sadness and grief for the losses. Surrender can be with shame and bitterness, or with dignity. Each has done their best.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Cancer, another psychic water sign, is more concerned with the home front, everyday life, feeding the troops, where Neptune would meditate at the ashram and just as soon fast. Cancer is the way of the householder, and Pisces is the spiritual life after that. Neptune puts perspective on how important and sacred a privilege raising our children is to the outcome in our community. It shows us how to integrate spiritual practice in our daily life. It teaches us to trust that our life’s necessities will come to us though we can’t yet see a way that can happen. Neptune’s compassion is essential to recognizing we each have our own special Path no matter what a loving parent may want for us. Cancer may be called on to reach beyond the ordinary to the magical! Dreams and visions become the image or art we make!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Cancers aren’t usually thrilled with all the change this threatens. They want food on the table at the right time, gotta get the kids to school on time, and get to work to support everyone. None of this fancy running around, adult play time. But for the Cancer in business, they are intrigued by what’s new and being one of the first investors! Small test amounts are in order. Their fine intuition helps them choose what will fly with the public, and whether it is a fad or here to stay! Oh, heck, and maybe they have been too stodgy and it’s time to take a little break, stuff the kids in the SUV and wander with reckless abandon on the adventure of a lifetime! Have fun!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Right up Cancer’s ally! Money in the bank, insurance, works well for them. If any little cures are needed, good chance they will get them. The Mother/Father alliance is super important to them, so this is a good time to pick a proper mate and make it legal, especially if better for taxes. Buy the home. Cancers are forever students, so Chiron’s teachings are quite welcome. Herbs and foods build our bodies in a good way, keep us healthy, heal ailments, help us stay young!

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Cancer can be the obedient child to Saturn, ruler of Capricorn the Father authority, but continual harsh treatment or undoable expectations means a constant state of recovery, possibly eventual breakdown. As an adult, you can choose to be with supportive companions in jobs where they love you and you all love what you are contributing to the world together! Each of you cheers the other, abundance flowing. It’s contagious! Happy you, happy customers. Sagittarius is one off from the opposition in Capricorn, a sign to the side. Cancer may think they have found their savior, a big thinker who is optimistic! But this teacher is a traveler and most Cancers stay home after all. Get what you get and let go. Worldly Sagittarius may be out of Cancer’s comfort zone, but it sure is interesting to take a look!

Jupiter in Virgo knows what the right food at the right time can do for you and Cancer is more a foodie than a nurse! Cancers do nurture, but it more a comfort than a science. They aren’t so far apart that they can’t work it out. Intuitive Cancer senses what’s important to Virgo, who obviously cares a great deal, and Cancer learns how to tune up the menu! Jupiter sees the big picture, Virgo makes suggestions on which house will require the least maintenance, have less utility charges, is more sustainable. Jupiter may help you find that job you have been hoping for by spiffing up your resume with great qualities you never realized you had! Oddly, you may find yourself going to Church or doing some volunteer work close to home and heart!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. As far as Cancer is concerned, that’s fine as long as you have permission and aren’t trespassing! Jupiter in Libra is surprised when you disagree with them, but if it’s a serious matter you might find yourself in court! And they have friends. They usually mean well, and would love to open your space to information they have found in their travels. They love different cultures, philosophies, art. Likely they would rather eat out than at your place. Might be good for you to get out more! Expect to be photo bombed, they are having a good time and want you to too! But how much can you stand? Better as house guests though they will probably leave sooner than planned on their own, off to see more other friends, visit the new ones they just met while with you! Fun while it lasted!

 

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

Have a great new year!

Cancer Parents, Profound Activists!

Cancer Proud Parent Family Natural Activists

Some of the most amazing women have strong Cancerian factors in their charts. Jk Rowling, children’s magical storyteller, has 4 planets in the lunar (Cancerian) 4th house. Josephine Baker, famous activist jazz singer with Neptune conjunct Venus in Cancer, adopted 12 children from around the world. Leo romance novelist Danielle Steel, Moon in Cancer, has NINE children! Young Pakistani Malala Yousafzai, activist for children’s education, is a Cancer. Law & Order actress Aquarian Mariska Hargitay has her Moon in the 4th (lunar house) sextile her Cancer descendant. She plays a Mom in Law & Order, has one child of her own, two adopted, established the Joyful Heart Foundation, which provides recovery help for victims of sexual abuse. She walks her talk.

Though Cancer is THE feminine sign, the sign of women, many fabulous men with Cancerian factors in their charts have tirelessly supported our heroines and children. Champion men athletes are famous for working with kids, developing their self esteem, encouraging them to learn, extend their reach in life. In India, Capricorn 2014 Nobel winner Kailash Satyarthi, described as an excellent cook (a Cancerian talent), has acted to protect the rights of more than 83,000 children from 144 countries to stop child slavery so they can go to school.

Every day Cancer parents go to bat for their kids. Shelter. Food. Health care. The best school possible. They teach them good living skills. They hug and hold. Often sacrifice. Parents work hard, do their best to be the living example of successful relationships. That’s grassroots activism.

Emotions and sensitivity have long been ranked as weakness, yet Caner intuition, instinctive reactions have saved the day too many times to discount this uncanny skill. True, we don’t have to act on our emotions every time. Another life skill.

Cancers are forever scholars, absorbing life just as fast as they can. Their memories run deep, and they can cull what no longer serves. That sideways step of the Crab dodges the danger just in time. Knowing what people are feeling, sensing the weather, having a fine attunement to cycles, gives Cancers an accurate assessment to invest wisely, whether property, the stock market or choice of safe people for their kids to hang out with or maybe to help raise money to fund a cause.

Most activism starts right at home with a dream, an ideal, love, wanting the best for our children. It can be in the garden, the classroom, standing up to a bully, in the shopping center parking lot, walking for breast cancer, asking for that raise, starting our own business, cooking dinner together. Simple things, but each part is important, contributing to a well rounded Spirit and a rich life. It’s unspoken inspiration. What can’t be done alone can often be done together. Family counts.

It may be for our own dear children, or the children of the world. “I raise up my voice – not so that I can shout, but so those without a voice can be heard.” — Malala Yousefzi, July 12, 1997  See her incredible story and her chart

Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Cancer Women Dancing Circle Sark Quote

Girlfriends by Melody Morgan. Her thoughts: This circle can be comprised of both female and male but I can tell you, the women are the most precious.

Women need other women. They always do. It is a special bond. It is like no other. Our circle, our posse, our tribe, our girlfriends. They become more and more important as we grow older. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, girlfriends are the mainstays of our life.

Thank you for our divine connection to each other….
