Taurus 2020 Balcony Italian Woman Accordion Singing C-19

Venus is love and affection; Gemini is Communications. Italians have made world news during Covid-19 singing and making music from their balconies. Some are known performers, making beauty for all! Bless them, how prezioso. Grazie from all of us in the world! We send our love to you. Volare from the balconies! 

► During Cancer: June 24 the Double Rx ends with Venus turning forward! 6.29 Jupiter Rx conjuncts Pluto. 7.1 Saturn back into his sign Capricorn during Mercury Rx.

► 5.20.20 Update: May is the 2nd month of the Double Retrograde process, June coming right along. Stay tuned in and use it deliberately. Stay on your long term purpose.

At this time, our communications mean so much. We wish it could be in person hugs, but we wait and find other ways to make our feelings clear by respecting distance – now another form of communication.

Venus, besides being in Gemini, is the planet of two signs, Taurus and Libra. Taurus says these are inalienable organic rights. Venus is blessed with clever in Libra and may be the attorney who stands up for those rights. Venus presents with beauty and dignity, shows the attractiveness and value, the wealth, common respect for all.

Venus in Gemini started her Retrograde CYCLE April 9 and doesn’t complete the entire cycle until July 28, so most of her process will be during the Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. She will be finding grace in communications. Jupiter wants Truth while Pluto opts for privacy. There will be some challenging delicate moments. Venus loving kindness will make all the difference.

Mother’s Day experiences happen during the Venus Rx Station – the time Venus appears to be standing still in the sky. Our Mother Love will be reassessed in view of C-19 experiences. How have we done as Mothers, children? Will we connect in a more meaningful way? What will make us all, men and women, be better spiritual Mother’s to our planet?

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is when a planet literally appears to stand still in the sky at the retrograde and direct turning points. Mercury has four days before and four days after the turns. Venus takes a bit longer and the number of days varies. Stations help us slow down. They are a pause when we are able to be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. The longer the station the more its strength.

Venus covers 5 to 21 Gemini 50 retrograde May 12 to June 24. Her 12 day 1° Rx station at 20/21 Gemini is from May 5 to 19. Her 16 day 1° Direct station at 5/6 Gemini is from June 16 to July 1.

Mercury covers 5 to 14 Cancer retrograde June 17 to July 12. His 8 day Rx station at 14 Cancer is June 14 to 21. His 8 day Direct station is at 5 Cancer from July 8 to 15.

If you have factors in your chart at or very close to those degrees, you will be activated, especially at the station degrees. Check in with your astrologer if you have significant plans at those times.

Plan ahead for what you want to be done, as much as possible, well before those times. Gemini is communications, speaking venues, scheduling, gear needed for that, phones, computers. Take care of your hands, lungs and breath. Cancer is business matters, your community, things at home especially in the kitchen and sleeping quarters, relationships with women and children, take care of your cat and your breasts/stomach. Get images you need, take care of your photography/albums.

Double Retrograde! This Venus Rx is especially important and complex for two reasons! 1) Because Mercury has an entire Retrograde cycle concurrently WITHIN the Venus Rx cycle! They will both be Rx together from June 17 to 24! Mercury Mind and Venus Matter will be atwiggle! 2) The brew will be especially stirred because Venus is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! Mercury has ideas by the zillions on any normal day. But Venus wants to know what they are worth and who said so!

Plus, there are THREE important planetary events during and following the Venus/Mercury retrograde! 

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

1. The first is the ongoing Jupiter conjunct Pluto. This Venus Retrograde cycle is wholly concurrent with that period! The second exact Jupiter conjunct Pluto is June 29 just after Venus turns Direct June 24. As we have already seen, the conjunction can make you millions or make a huge mistake and lose a few. It can exaggerate your difficult condition or expand a good thing beyond your wildest dreams! It can be sadly obsessive, exceptionally cruel, or a healer with the most extraordinary abilities comes your way. In the US the particular importance of this aspect will be at the US Presidential Elections November 3. Its third aspect, the mature aspect, will be Nov 12 just after the election, in other words, THE aspect of the Elections, exactly at the same degree and sign as the recent Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto!

The April 4 Jupiter conjunct Pluto was the aspect being felt at the end of the Feb/March Mercury Rx cycle. Now it is the trigger aspect starting at the beginning of the Venus Retrograde Cycle! It will be what we are thinking about throughout the Venus/Mercury retrogrades!

Venus in Gemini is blessed and skilled at communication. Leaving no stone unturned, she will access diverse sources, gather information, reassess the value of what she learns as an entirety. Like with Mercury, Gemini’s planet, we have a good chance of learning a lot. Mercury in Cancer literally looks at the underbelly, what people -especially women – feel, what they need, how they sit in our community, how our culture is doing. What kind of history are we making? Recovery is not enough. They want more and what is best for our and our children’s future.

2. Jupiter Sextile Neptune  June 13 Jupiter Rx in Capricorn is back to 5° sextile Neptune in Pisces. July 1 it is back to 3°, getting closer and closer until the conjunction July 27. This is a super magical aspect riding in the background. Jupiter is judge; Capricorn is spiritual law. Neptune in Pisces is the visionary business of all. Many of us are rethinking what is really important, what we would like to renovate, what to build for a more sustainable future. We are more aware of Planetary kinship, a spiritual consensus more important than government, power and profits alone. Jupiter sees the extraordinary potential, can map it out in realistic terms and Capricorn has the expertise to make it so! True Believers unite!

Jupiter makes its 2nd and 3rd aspects July 27 and Oct 12. The day Jupiter makes that second July 27 aspect is right between the very last days of the Mercury and Venus Rx cycles July 25 and 28. Mercury in Cancer, Capricorn’s opposite, has been watching keenly, feeling the progress – lacks and successes. Mercury, so aware of the importance of Neptune’s insights and visions, spreads the word of the upcoming possibilities. The information and insights Mercury and Venus glean will be passed on to the Jupiter/Neptune archives for up leveling. From then on, Jupiter and Neptune stay close to 2 degrees or less until the third and last aspect Oct 12, so the aspect is virtually continuous for that period and a little before and after. The third Jupiter/Neptune aspect is at 18 Capricorn 45, conjunct the important Oct 30 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic degree! In turn, the Oct 12 2020 aspect is the closest preceding aspect to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. What Mercury and Venus learn now is significant because it will be telegraphed right down the line. Pay attention and don’t forget. Make notes, document, review at future times.

3. While Saturn is in Aquarius it squares Uranus in Taurus from 5° or less starting from the March 21 entry time until May 1. At that point Saturn slows to retrograde while Uranus continues forward. It doesn’t make the three actual squares until 2021! Saturn puts the brakes on change that is too rapid or not natural. He stopped the airlines due to the pandemic, is limiting friendships and networks, looking for better long term ways to build our new future!  

July 1 Saturn Rx leaves Aquarius, goes back into his own sign Capricorn! The entire first part and the retrograde part of the Venus Rx cycle are entirely during Saturn in Aquarius. Just six days after Venus turns direct, Saturn goes back into Capricorn to rebuild now that there are new specs. Mercury is still Rx at that time, so still has questions, like ‘How is this shift going to work out?’ Mercury in Cancer has practically photographic memory, so easily digs back to see what differences occur. It can see what failed and how it failed and guide us to help prevent that happening again.  Saturn in Aquarius   Saturn in Capricorn

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

Venus retrograde cycles are longer than Mercury’s, so we are traversing a 4 months period. 

Venus makes two repeated planetary aspects during its retrograde cycle, April 9 to July 28. Three times each it sextiles Chiron and squares Neptune. With Chiron favorably, communications are good for healing, business and marriage depending on how it fits with your personal chart. The squares with Neptune aren’t sure. There could be mix ups, lost papers or people. It could bring broken dreams, encounters with addiction, or more kindness than you have ever seen or known. Venus in Gemini can have so much data that it doesn’t settle well at first, is overwhelming, or Venus seems selfish or glib. Relationships are reevaluated. Sources of income will change.

Everyone calm down, talk about it, go away and think about it, come back to it. Probably good to wait until both retrogrades are well over. See how things are after the dust settles. Most astrologers wouldn’t suggest marrying with both of these particular planets retrograde. Mercury is contracts; Venus is love and regard. Not good to be changing your mind on that one after the contract is made. It’s good if you have a revelation and save yourself from yourself before the contract is made! Business can be tweaked or just let go. Healing can bring reform and change that keeps changing, hopefully for the better. It is not a spiritual problem if you disengage from that particular healer or healing modality, teacher. Learning never stops.

Eight aspects are made to Chiron in Aries, good with Venus, some challenging, some inspiring and empowering! Look into new ways of teaching and healing, doing business that has never been done before. Scout things during the retrogrades. If you still feel the same way after the retrogrades, see if anyone would like to partner up and give it a go! There will be many opportunities!

Nine aspects are being made to Neptune in its own sign Pisces! Some will be challenges, others will get Neptune up and going walkabout, but the big one is the July 27 Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, powerful good fortune and focus, sextile Neptune of dreams and visions to come true! Jupiter retrograde has come back to see how things are doing, what has changed, what can make it better than was thought before. Jupiter will tweak a few things. It won’t be entirely finished, but will be put back on track, centered for the future on or about Oct 12. Get on it! Believe!

Between Mercury, Venus, Sun and Mars, half the signs will be being covered, from Aquarius to Leo! You can follow them per planet along the Timeline. 

In the Feb/March Mercury Rx it sextiled Uranus from Pisces to Taurus expressing its dreams that Taurus could be alert to secure them. This time Mercury sextiles from Cancer back to Taurus. Uranus in Taurus likes to take sensible chances and often surprises us with how well it works though we thought it was a long shot. Cancer is a good trader, senses the mood of the people, knows when things are hot and cold, whether they feel safe or not. It instinctively assesses a person’s capability. Cancer is a great business sign, especially for families and women, working at home or with items for our homes. They are aware of seasonal changes, the tides of time. We are now ripe for innovative planetary wide new businesses. Cancer likes to Mother, so will love helping get new startups going! Those that focus on community, sustainability will go the furthest. Though Cancer can be old fashioned, when they make up their mind to change, it happens quickly! Solid new Uranian friends will speed things along fluidly! 


Venus with Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47. Robson gives a mixed review of Aldebaran. ‘It gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. With Venus: Honor through literature, music or art, creative abilities, favorable for health and marriage.’

Venus with Rigel at 16 Gemini 50. Robson gives a more favorable account than his usual: ‘It gives benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability.’ With Venus: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female.’

Mercury makes its Retrograde Station at 14 Cancer 45, conjunct the powerful Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! The planetary turns in the retrograde cycles are important because they appear to be standing still for many days from the point of view of Earth. Mercury stations are 8 days, 4 before, 4 after. There is steeping, focus, incorporating and stabilizing what’s deemed to be a keeper. Sirius, the Dog-star, is the brightest star in the night sky, called the Prince of Princes! Robson says the Mercury/Sirius combination can bring ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ UK astrologer Deborah Houlding says ‘…with its quick reaction, high energy and impetuous nature, in many respects fits the profile of ‘the puppy’, one of the titles by which it was traditionally known.’ At another level, Michael, the Archangel of the powerful First Ray, a brilliant blue, is associated with Sirius.

Aldebaran and Sirius are both Behenian fixed stars. Aldebaran is associated with Mars and VENUS. Sirius is with Jupiter, fame and fortune! Per Wiki: The Behenian fixed Stars are in a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Their name derives from Arabic bahman, “root,” as each was considered a source of astrological power for one or more planets.

Mercury Retrograde DNA!

About Retrogrades!  

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

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

Venus makes beauty wherever she goes, whenever possible. She loves her possessions whether lovely things or sweet people. Venus is gifted with social skills, to cross boundaries of different cultures, faiths, skin color, genders, sexuality, financial standing, eccentricity. Sometimes she has low self esteem, out of fear can be selfish. Usually she is kindly and giving. Balance is best. She’s often exceptionally attractive and in love with love. Charm.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Every Retrograde is unique by sign and where it happens in your chart! As time goes on the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. Retrogrades, like any other astro phenomena, evolve.

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

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

This VENUS Retrograde is in GEMINI, Mercury’s sign, so it will be a lot like Mercury Retrograde. Venus flavoring Gemini will bring a longing for poetic exchanges, a genteel sharing. Venus loves touch and in Gemini signs up for a massage series (with your mask on, of course). Pretty up! Make up, clothes, add some new colors! Your posture, demeanor. Some voice training? Look like what you want to become to be! Gemini may try on a few roles, so give it some time to feel it. Is it what you really want or is it a step in the right direction? Write a few stories, make up a new resume, a fantastic name for your new business, advertise about what’s new. Let it change, morph, come by happenstance. Follow what’s in your spirit! Talk with your neighbors and sibs! Extend the loop to Soul Brothers and Sisters, kindred beings.

Our values, Venus, are significantly changing. Many are spending time at home, rethinking their choices in view of what’s deeply important from the context of life and death. Many are wanting to make their life count, to heal the planet to be a better place for our loved ones, children, young people, elders. Venus retrograde in Gemini will look at many facets as it considers all the angles. It may seem selfish to dwell on oneself so, but Gemini knows we all breathe the same air and we are all spiritually connected. In a sense, are all One. Each of our personal choices affects the web of life of all.

Wait on cosmetic body work or on starting long term dental work. Wait on redecorating, buying a new wardrobe, changing your company logo. You may decide to postpone Engagements and Marriages. It may be wise to wait until things have cleared a bit after the virus and the new economics many are facing. Many new businesses will be starting! Or it may be a special time to preciously hold each other to our hearts and together help each other through this difficult time into amazing new beginnings.

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

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

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

Be of good cheer, Things are going to be ok! Tutto Andra Bene!

Tutto Andra Bene. Everything will be OK.

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

New Moon! 

Gemini speaks the Word, Neptune Dreams are Key! 

Sagittarius-Gemini Full Strawberry Moon!

Three outer planets at 18° now! Mercury & Mars engaged with Saturn and Pluto!

Gemini speaks the Word, Neptune Dreams are Key!

Gemini 2019 New Moon Milky Way White Desert Egypt Nader El Assy

The magnificent Milky Way springing out of the Sahara White Desert in Gemini country Egypt by Nader El Assy

One of Gemini’s talents is shifting, making waves in the windy-day grass, wavelets in the sands of time. They are all different, many, and all connected, all one. Our New Moon has three planets in Gemini including Mercury, the planet of Gemini! Sun puts his heart Light into the transcendence from one level to the next. Moon stands by always ready for changes. She guides us through each sign into the next encounter. Mercury spins the web so all are held safely. He calls, waits, we catch up and the multitude moves forward again. Each idea is considered. Though it seems random, no one is here by chance. All are contributors. Though Mercury is in Gemini, he stands alone by degrees, free to spread the Word as he wishes. It may be a precursor, not have particular immediate results. It will float until the time is right. 

The New Moon squares Neptune! This is important because they and this entire New Moon system are bringing us up to and supporting the coming Jupiter square Neptune and Saturn sextile Neptune June 16 and 18. These aspects straddle the Full Strawberry Moon! Moon has the authority of the Mother. In Gemini she nurtures with the mind, words, giving information to make us whole. Her touch calms the emotions. She brings us back to present though there are memories of a sometimes lost child. Neptune is anything but logical, but just the same, being psychic, he ‘understands’ anyway. Even more, he understands the intent, need, behind the words or information delivered. Neptune carries so much content it makes a Gemini look pale! His information is not mere data, but how it is seated within the collective Consciousness. Sometimes he is overwhelmed, muddled, worried for all, becomes a victim of his own vast knowing. Mercury comes in, peppy and innocent, and Neptune is swept clean in a quick swish! Not that anything really ever went away, it’s just that Mercury comes in with such a different way, Neptune is broadsided, reawakened, brought up to date, and set to simmer! Mercury, smart as he is, is clueless, bids Neptune adieu and off he goes! Next!

So Neptune has been gifted with a mental smorgasbord, is intrigued, and re-sorts the parameters, discovers delightful new avenues of seeing. It’s all just in time for Jupiter’s greater Truth seeking push. Jupiter has the big ideas, the plans for Neptune’s dreams! Neptune is entranced, becomes a bit unsure of himself in this new territory. All the better for creatively opening new doors! Jupiter has confidence and is right there when Neptune wavers. Together they get to the next portion of the journey.

Saturn gives Neptune a stamp of approval, offers to build now, extend beyond any time lapse. Saturn consults with Jupiter and Neptune, sees Jupiter’s brilliant ideas, Neptune’s visions, helps them come to terms with what’s really possible right now. He betters some of what they hoped for because he is so good at seeing the shortcuts that work. More is done with less in less time. Saturn knows there are some rules and protection needed and negotiates terms the people will need so the project is sustained. 

The New Moon semi sextiled Mars! He’s in Cancer, either grumpy with women and children, who has time for their sniveling, or he is their #1 Champion, faithfully defending them against all odds! What a hero! He is also wanting especially to do Moon’s wishes since he is in her sign. Cancer is not just Mother and women, but the public at large, business, cycles, commodities. He’s pushing to get these projects done so all can benefit. We’ve waited too long already.

Venus, lingering in her sign Taurus, trined Saturn and Pluto. She has shown them the value of Earth, nature, sustainability and made a good case. She is holding stability while Gemini is off sniffing all the flowers!

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

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

Saturn is retrograde about to be at 18 Capricorn again, the very degree of the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Neptune is now at 18 Pisces sextile that degree. Jupiter is retrograde and by the Full Moon June 17, will be back at that degree, 18 Sagittarius! We will be reviewing, strengthening our techniques, be reminded of the potency of Earth’s situation. Business, beliefs, posterity will all be on our minds. Jupiter is readying our plans and preparations. Jupiter keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Any learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Pluto is now at 22 Capricorn, THE degree Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto at on Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. 

In Gemini, they assess our state of mind, the state of the planet. They look at communication mediums, people who have the ear of the public, which are priority realms needing uplifting the most, those that have been neglected, abandoned. As with them, take a look at your skills, where to put your sacred intention next, what you can do that will make a big enough difference. It you can’t do it right now, prepare, have a timeline that you check on frequently to remind you why you are doing this. If you are alone, sign up with skilled leaders so you can learn from them. Take some class action into your own hands!  

New Moons are a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome may surprise everyone! In Gemini, we are aware of so many links in our own minds and those between us. Communications are vital to life. As we speak, our breath of life carries the Word. As we do our life work we become models for others to follow.

Sharing is caring. Keep it rolling!

Sagittarius-Gemini Full Strawberry Moon! 

Monday June 17 at 1:31 AM Pacific 25 Sagittarius/Gemini 53 

Three outer planets at 18° now! Mercury & Mars engaged with Saturn and Pluto!

Gemini 2019 Full Strawberry Moon Parthenon Acropolis, Athens Greece

Gemini is multiplicity, pillars and posts, duality, doubles, siblings, especially twins! The Parthenon at the Acropolis, Athens Greece.

The Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon span the plane of consciousness that considers what’s on your mind – words to ethics. Gemini has gathered data fresh at its fingertips; Sagittarius sorts out what it means and where its going. It ranges from siblings and neighbors to the philosophers of the world. Every bit is part of the collective and plays a part of the whole. It is all in motion, breathing, shifting, in discovery at all times. Learning and teaching are the living tools of its expression. Learning how to learn, how to teach become prime importance. Those techniques are equally in evolution. It’s all a verb, not a destination!

Those words, it’s not what you say but how you say it. Gemini Sun needs to be mindful of how much to deliver at a time, and to be  potently to the point. Scatter shots do work at the right times. They cover the territory and maybe who we are talking to needs the whole story, didn’t realize the breadth of the subject! Sometimes as we let the conversation take its natural course, we relax and take it in at a more subconscious level, realize the true deeper intent of the exchange. At times a summary helps put it all in perspective. Other times a summary may minimize the breadth, scope of wholeness. We realize there is no summary, instead a broad blanket of standalone matters whose only commonality is each are happening at the same time. The summary becomes ‘there are several important matters right now.’ 

Moon in Sagittarius is concerned with housing locations, education for the kids, how to plan for the future in the current world of earth changes. For many there is a dismaying realization just how conservative, even rigid, definitely resistant, sometimes violent, powerful, some of us are. When the children of the world have to take point, that speaks. They have been shot at, abused, money put above their healthy futures. Sagittarius is optimistic, has abiding faith, is the TruthSeeker. We need them now. They need to drop any vestiges of arrogance, judgement, contempt. Everyone has come from somewhere. They need to show us differences, possibilities, give us their incredible perspective. Stand true with a lot of heart. Moon intends to nurture, and we need it. 

THREE OUTER PLANETS ARE AT 18° NOW! They are all at the degree of the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! Jupiter starts at 18 Sag. Saturn is next at 18 Cap. Neptune finishes in the last sign, Pisces. ALL ARE IN THEIR OWN SIGNS! Jupiter is the traveler, teacher. How we travel these times is crucial. It’s not just where we go, but how we be with the people as we go. Saturn takes a practical look at reality. Some laws need to be broken, updated, made to protect vital progress. Responsibility is key for each citizen, even the children today. Neptune is the visionary, plays to our Spirits and Soul. Neptune is psychic, feels the immensity we are facing, senses how each one of us can stand for what we believe in, in a good way. Jupiter and Neptune are in a challenge aspect. Jupiter’s temptation is self righteousness; Neptune reminds him we are all different in so many ways, yet want many of the basic same things. Balance is key. Sometimes an outraged shouter gets people to finally listen. Neptune comes in to soothe and commune with the ones with busted beliefs! He assures them they can continue, they will make it through the rubble and create new times together.

Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde. Jupiter just squared Neptune YESTERDAY June 16! Saturn sextiles Neptune TOMORROW June 18. They are intensified by this Gemini/Sagittarius Full Strawberry Moon right between them June 17! These aspects are especially important because they happen while Neptune is at 18 Pisces, sextile the Pluto/Ecliptic point of Oct 30 2018 at 18 Capricorn! The whole sequence started Oct 30, 2018 with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Jupiter/Saturn pair are preparing us for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse at 18 Scorpio and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence bringing healing and planning. Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful Jupiter/Pluto aspect, same degree and sign, that is most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. All of these are linked to and will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Jupiter square Neptune is currently seeking greater meaning now that we have had some months of experience. Jupiter and Neptune have to do with Faith and Spirituality. Faith often has a name, a congregation. Spirituality is more your personal relationship with your beliefs, being a Savior of Humanity. It might be sitting in meditation, doing good works for suffering Souls, no recognition needed. Many are thinking of the huge donations that were given to restore money maker Notre Dame while cities don’t have drinking water, animals are going extinct, children are suffering. One woman wrote ‘What would Jesus do?’ Jupiter’s Truth is challenging Neptune’s blind side.

Saturn’s job is to take the best most workable ideas of the Jupiter square Neptune and parlay them into use. These three will aspect each other the third and last times – Jupiter Sep 21 and Saturn Nov 8. Saturn is practical and offers Neptune a reasonable rebuild. Saturn cuts the time, builds strong and doesn’t waste time. Old things, stones and glass are his medium. He may take a more middle of the road stance due to public opinion. The ones donating may come to question why they haven’t given before to matters of living beings. We have these magnificent heritage buildings and the Turtle going extinct on the same day. One is reparable, the other is not. Please give the majority of your energy to the long term.

Moon’s Nodes recently spanned across Saturn, the South Node at Saturn! They have to do with the Past. We have been considering how things used to be, how they have been, what’s to come and what to do. Saturn wants to rebuild, make a difference, have rules that are doable. The North Node, the direction we are heading, wants food to be better quality, to eat the right kinds and amounts. Saturn can help regulate and build a better system. In addition, the Nodes have just been favorable with Neptune! Neptune is addictions of any kind, and food doesn’t cost much, is right there in your fridge. A favorable aspect can make us think we can get away with it, or Neptune can help us imagine consequences and make us realize the need to take care of ourselves better. If we aren’t talking about addictions, we can see how women, families are so important in our world today when there is so much change at hand. We all need the nurturing. We are inspired to make a safe and better world for our loved ones. We need to treat ourselves better that we may be able to help them well. Young heroines like 15 year old activist Greta Thunberg speaks truth to power at the UN COP24 climate talks. She speaks of her needs as a planetary citizen who lives on after us…

Mars and Mercury were and are activating Saturn and Pluto!

Mars in Cancer isn’t fooling around. He just faced across to Saturn. Cancer is always a ‘presence’ with Saturn, in Capricorn, because Cancer is Capricorn’s opposite sign. Opposition is awareness, but is also the safest long distance apart in a chart. If Saturn gets annoyed he can be heavy handed. Mars can feel safer to call him out, but in Cancer Mars is more likely to offer support, even though a challenge is made. Cancer is generally conservative too, so Saturn feels safer to consider the matter. In this case, housing and children are at the top of the list. 

Now and next, Mars opposes Pluto, also in Capricorn. Formidable and not so easy as Saturn/Cap. Pluto can be tough to read, so thank goodness for Cancer’s perception and the skills of dealing with children who think they can’t be seen, LOL! Mars better be somewhat careful though. Not good to provoke the Ninja Master. Then, Mars loves a challenge and rarely bypasses such a chance. If he succeeds, he could have the Master’s approval, even if it is begrudging. They will know of each others’ presence, parry, whether emotionally or actual contact. It could be athletic or financial competition. The aspect is exact June 19, 8:21 PM Pacific, the day after Saturn sextiles Neptune. If Mars and Pluto work in tandem on opposite sides, contributing their efforts for a greater cause, the results could be outstanding. Mars spearheads a business that funds the finances needed to seek a cure for a longstanding disease. It could be mental, an addiction, infectious, a tumor. Mars could do some special awareness events that go viral that Pluto decides to contribute major funds to. Those models of super efforts, breaking taboos, relinquishing old dead ends, could be used by many groups to make profound changes.  

Mercury moves faster than Mars and has just jumped into position, first with Jupiter, then with Neptune & Saturn just 3 hours before the Jupiter square Neptune the day before the Full Moon! The Full Moon is all about decoding the findings and immediately applying them to the next day’s June 18 Saturn sextile Neptune! Saturn’s sextile will bring about Neptune’s dream with aplomb!

Mercury and Mars in Cancer are both askew Jupiter, formed an inconjunct. That’s an aspect like peripheral vision. But as planets, Mercury and Jupiter rule opposite signs Gemini/Sagittarius. Odd as Cancer and Sagittarius are with each other, Cancer ruling homeland and Sag anywhere else you go, they still share the function of communications. Mercury has the words; Sagittarius has the meanings and purpose. Mercury conduits the data, perceptions; Sagittarius makes the plan that connects them to their greater perspective. Mars and Jupiter are both risk taker fire planets. Mars gets you started; Jupiter is so much fun, carries you along and all of a sudden you are someplace else, again! Mercury is happily learning as he goes, enjoys every fresh minute! In fact, he’s busy comparing eateries near the library, while Mars and Jupiter are looking for the sports arena.  

Mercury trined Neptune. If Mercury were not in psychic water sign Cancer, he might find little possibility of connecting with Neptune the Magician of Formlessness. In comparison to seemingly meaningless dreams of immense imagination, Mercury’s mere words seem confining and limiting, even angular. Neptune works more from tonal qualities that morph and blend with no reasons we understand yet. But as they relate now, Mercury senses the unfoldment, a cycle of the Soul, hears the music. Mercury gives a surprisingly accurate story of what Neptune relates, something much more than our average perception. Now it’s time to get people to listen and believe.

Mercury, as Mars, opposed Saturn, and will oppose Pluto. Mercury in Cancer tunes in to Saturn and sees what he frets about, gives him ideas, notices what Saturn does very well, so better than the average person. Mercury is logical and Saturn is scientific. Saturn sees Cancer’s insights as reliable and worthy. Though opposite, Mercury standing back, can see things Saturn got too busy to notice, forgot or left out. They can work well together. Mercury opposite Pluto is a little tense since Pluto likes his privacy. Mercury has curiosity and the urge to bounce information discovered off anyone who will listen, to see what it’s all about. Pluto holds his cards close, so Mercury may be held off. Yet, Mercury in psychic Cancer notices when the eyes go blank, and that’s Pluto’s tell. So Mercury knows where to look further and circles the field looking for more clues and an entry. If Pluto decides to take Mercury into his confidence, and he may do so since Cancer is a protective water sign too, they can cover a lot of forbidden territory that may need an airing. Clearing, renovation, getting funding for building is in the wind. Maybe a safe haven for women, a special school for disadvantaged or special needs children. Clever shortcuts and establishing new connections, renewing old proven connections will smooth the way.

Mercury is shoulder to shoulder, conjunct Mars, bearing witness to tell the story! He not only observes the events, but feels the sequence through his entire being. Mercury takes notes; Cancer has a photographic memory. It becomes part of him. They are exactly together the morning of the 18th, just after Saturn sextiles Neptune! Mercury, having been present the entire sequence, in the most potent moments, gets the scoop! He can tell the whole story! He will continue on, faster than Mars, to observe the final event when Mars opposes Pluto the 19th. Mercury is paving the way, opening people’s minds to receive Mars’ new ideas and embrace his actions!

Venus stands alone in Gemini, sweet with her words and attention.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue their 13 years long journey closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. One of their exact aspects is coming June 30. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Get the word going! Connect and tell the story.
