Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Moon-Jupiter Baker Paul Hollywood Great British Bake Off

This isn’t the most fabulous decadent cake I had picked out for you. I decided to give you a baker instead!

Paul Hollywood started out at home in his father’s bakery as a teenager, and his grandfather was head baker at The Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool! Though a Pisces, he has the Moon, cooking – the planet of Cancer, conjunct his Jupiter of fame and fortune! They are in Gemini, so Jupiter the traveler has taken him to many (Gemini) places, including being head baker at a number of hotels, including The Dorchester, Chester Grosvenor and Spa and the Cliveden Hotel. He then left the UK for Cyprus, where he worked at two resorts and met his scuba instructor wife Alexandra!

His Saturn, Chiron and Mars, together in Pisces, are trine Neptune in Scorpio, so he can take, and dish out, quite a bit of heat in the kitchen! Since the show launched in 2010, Hollywood has been a judge on the BBC program The Great British Bake Off. In this capacity, he has been described as the “antidote” to judges such as Len Goodman or Simon Cowell in other reality television programs, on account of his straightforward and honest manner and because his judging is restricted purely to the finished product. The show is now in its 7th series!

And, of course, Paul speaks at several food festivals, including the Cumbrian Food Festival, and the BBC Good Food Show and the Cake and Bake Show, both in London.

Fun for a Baker! In 2008, Hollywood created an almond and roquefort sourdough recipe that was said to be the most expensive bread in Britain. The roquefort was supplied from a specialist in France at £15 per kilo (that’s $19+ per 2 lbs +), while the flour for the bread was made by a miller in Wiltshire. Hollywood describes it as a “Rolls-Royce of loaves”.

As you might expect, with Moon/Jupiter, Paul, ‘The King of Bakes’ is a generous Soul. Paul is a keen supporter of the Pilgrims Hospices. Sep 2015 is just one example. He made a guest appearance to encourage home baking enthusiasts taking part in their Wingham farm shop Gibsons Big Cake Bake fundraiser. Contestants entered their best bake, be it a cake, cookie, cupcake, tray bake for local judges to see and taste.He is also successful at his other love, motor racing! In 2015 Hollywood began his racing career, making his debut in the Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT4. Hollywood raced with Andrew Howard, founder of Beechdean Dairies – probably a foodie friend, right?! The pair qualified second in the Britcar Trophy Championship’s first round at Silverstone taking second in class in both races. Hollywood competed at Le Mans in 2015, in the Aston Martin festival. And also competed in GT Cup with Jonny Adam and finished 1st in class.

Every week, Paul shares a new recipe online as well as blogging about his experiences and future plans. More of Hollywood’s recipes are available in his books, which include 100 Great Breads, The Weekend Baker and How To Bake. And he sells his own range of merchandise online. He’s doing ok – worth almost 13M. Check him out! And do bring us all a loaf of bread you baked yourself!

Cancer 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Summer Triangle Vega Deneb Altair

Start looking for it now, mid June! See the Summer Triangle as a great big “V” for vacation!  It is most prominent during the summer season. Three stars in three constellations mark its points – Vega in Lyra the Harp, Deneb in Cygnus the Swan, and Altair in Aquila the Eagle.

Bruce McClure poetically writes: ‘Once you master the Summer Triangle, you can always locate the Milky Way on a clear, dark night. How about making the most of a dark summer night to explore this band of stars – this starlit boulevard abounding with celestial delights? Use binoculars to reel in the gossamer beauty of it all, the haunting nebulae and star clusters of a midsummer night’s dream!’

At nightfall in summer, look for the brightest star in your eastern sky. That’s Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra the Harp. Look to the lower left of Vega for another bright star – Deneb, the brightest in the constellation Cygnus the Swan and the third brightest in the Summer Triangle. Look to the lower right of Vega to locate the Summer Triangle’s second brightest star Altair.

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse! Get your Eclipse glasses!

Cancer 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, happened the last 8 days of 2016.

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The last aspect, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune has been and is in a one degree station May 17, retrograde, to July 4, direct/forward! The final set of six starts with this July 4 aspect. In forward order, the set of six finishes 11/11!

Cancer 2017, the 48 days Jupiter inconjunct Neptune finishes. We stay in contemplation, a continuous exploration of myths and miracles! We take steps off the main course, venturing into the relativity of causation – how we were created, how we ourselves are the cause of our future. Walking through the invisible veils that once held us, becomes a way of life. We are always fresh, know the perfect vantage point for clear vision.

The Aug 4 Jupiter square Pluto is the next last aspect of the now forward set of six that started Oct 2016.

The upcoming Lunar sequence is profound! There are two new Moons in LEO, the second is the amazing US Total Solar Eclipse!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.
Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017.

June  20  Happy Cancer and Summer Solstice!

The day after the LEO New Moon, July 24, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background…. July 29 is one of the two 2017 days it is exact! More


Outer Planet Transit Aspects Cancer 2017 –  July 2018!

Cancer Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland

A magical walk in time……….Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland 

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Cancer’s year to come. What we do now will be backdrop and foundation for our future moves. Stay tuned in! 

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 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! Pluto is opposite Cancer, calling on that immortal strength of the Mother. There is a look at the depths of feelings, their reality, their roots. Feelings we have outgrown are weeded out, feelings we keep are cleansed and reorganized more appropriately to current times. Children are threatened or protected; businesses are ended, sold, or fortified. Security and financial matters need tending. Death could be nearby. Don’t be seduced by suave masters, inappropriate relationships. There will be consequences that might not be able to be fixed or forgiven. Do check in with your astrologer for your whole personal picture.

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 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! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Cancer and Neptune can make profound art, music of the Soul! Cancer loves genealogy, a look at the Past, and Neptune can be the guide through the labyrinth! This may be a sweet time to find your spiritual home, make sacred connections, make a meditation space or have a private studio. You may find yourself where the river meets the sea, get a home with a view of the lake, a houseboat! Blended smoothies could become your favorite food!

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year 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 a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Cancer doesn’t always like rowdy changes, but is interested in gathering scholarly information to make the changes the best possible. Uranus rules the world community, and Cancer rules the local community, family unity. Cancer is a sub model and quite personally knows about the ins and outs of family workings. Uranus stirs that system to extend its relationships, try different techniques, rethink financial methods and food sources. Fears can vaporize, curiosity becomes wonder!

Uranus in Taurus is a lot easier on the Cancer nervous system. There is less rush, more settling, common sense. Taurus is also food oriented. Natural and organic is wonderful. Overeating is a danger, a delicious danger. Those new recipes Uranus brought are scrumptious. Taurus prefers safe and dependable finances just like Cancers do, and the new techniques really work! Relationships that have time to grow and bloom as friendships first is very comfortable, and they are likely to be with a person you meet in your own community. There is a mutual sharing and camaraderie. They are unique and talented people that spice your life in a pleasing way. Some of your new friends may come on the scene bringing unusual animals and pets to your location. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, 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 and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Cancer is that quick too! The healing is sensitive and can run deeper into your Spirit than any time ever before. It can free you to make adult relationships that leave the errors of your parents behind, especially your Mom. Childishness falls away and your new level natural fit is blessed. Both Chiron and Cancer like to do business, but Pisces adds the need to do what you totally love! Art, music, cheffing, schooling, parenting, beautiful interior design, antiques, genealogy! Having your own business, stock trading!

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries is not usually Cancer’s favorite, but sometimes we need the prod, the encouragement to attempt our new ideas! School is less personal; mentors and therapists know us well and won’t let us get away with denial or staying in fear. There may be a feeling of pressure as Chiron activates your personal degrees, and that means it’s working! Back off of spicy hot foods, be cautious of cuts, take care of fevers/infections right away.

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through July 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn is askew, inconjunct Cancer. Saturn is the planet of Capricorn, the sign opposite Cancer. There is an invitation to follow off to the side, to cross the bridge and take the turn. Cancer just wants to stay home. Saturn has a hard time resisting trying to Father Cancer, the sign of women and children, especially when they are at home. It’s an instinct. They want to protect. Saturn wants to build the best for Cancers though at times that can feel limiting, like when they want to change your plans too! Need to talk it over or it feels heavy handed to a sensitive Cancer. Sometimes it seems there are too many facts and rules for their intuitive preferences. Other times it makes them feel secure that hardworking Saturn is there for them. Small quarters can be cozy or confining. Cold is not so good for snuggly Cancers who also like cooking in a warm kitchen! Cancer may be sad when Saturn needs to go off on business trips, but reunions are sweet when some new recipes are brought back, even if they are foreign, along with a kitchen gift!

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s target far, far away. Saturn knows so much is doable. One step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Cancer is one of the best business signs! They will relish the practical tips Saturn has to share. Saturn will help with time management, laws, accounting percentages, ROI, getting projects in on time! They will also help you curb your diet! In relationships be cautious you don’t fall for a Daddy or for fame rather than an equal partner. The partner you pick will likely have an excellent reputation and is quite accomplished. Your own Father or an elder may become important in a meaningful way.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting, care of elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 13 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Cancer is generally traditional and though can be gossipy, still feels there are personal matters that are nobody’s business but your own. Jupiter doesn’t give it at though, and in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Cancer’s Moms and family before them gave them theirs and they protect those special connections. Go gently if you are invading home territory of another. Sometimes Jupiter can share with a big smile and with the utmost manners make you feel everything they and you have so say is a treasure. That works. You can be invited to marvelous parties and come home tired and happily overwhelmed, sampled everything, ate too much. This is likely a love ’em and leave ’em relationship potential. They leave. Super business ideas, big job offered maybe – if you travel with them, but more likely you will be grateful for the information and take them to the airport….

Jupiter in Scorpio and Cancer can do business! Jupiter brings backers. It can start as a hometown business and become a corporation! This can be a fertile combination, a partnership, personal or business, that can last a lifetime. Intimacy can be irresistible, deep, poignant and potent – children for sure and a big home to live in! In this case there could be a home away from home, and the business have branch locations. Jupiter in Scorpio will forever have secrets even though Jupiter is open and the TruthTeller. Scorpio never tells all. At least get a credit check. And watch out for schemes or bigamy. Jupiter in Scorpio can appear sleazy or big-eyed honest and not be, or be hero journalists who reveal all! On the healing front they can be phenomenal! Extraordinary therapists, researchers, soul cleansing, forgiveness, PTSD healers, hospice saints. They tackle some of the toughest work needed. They can demand a lot of us and we may think we could never truly measure up. If we finally find the Soul that is as intense as we are, it is an incredible blessing.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it wildly abundant! 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.

Here’s the coming Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Cancer, the Art of Families

Cancer Old Family Homestead New Salem, MA

Old family homestead with Apple Trees at a New Salem MA

Cancer is really about the special people we love – babies to elders. Our past is made up of many dear people from cultures all over the world. We have images of some of them, and antiques and mementos that mean so much to us.

Families are like a human tapestry of time. There are the elders that learned from their elders, their Grandmas and Grandpas. There are the parents that learned from theirs, and add their own ways with insights of the times they live in. They leave some ways behind, preserve and carry forward what they see as the core goodness that makes life flow well. Children watch with innocence, absorbing some of the bad along with the good, each a unique reservoir of Spirit. They are a mixture, a blend, that is the potency of a new generation. They have dreams, sometimes without even consciously knowing what the dreams are, a result of what happened before them. Some dreams are the dreams of their culture, some of their dreams are generated from their own vitality, forging a new generation that their children will then carry forward.

It’s an intricate and sensitive process. For every person it is unique. Sometimes we are so different than our forebears and family, a Mother’s comfort is all there is. Sometimes we find a mentor that understands us, feels most of what we feel, listens. Together, as cycles flow, years go by, we accomplish so much. There are amazing achievements, often documented by beautiful watercolors, photography, designs, quilts. We become the engineers of life!

Cancers make excellent teachers. First they show us the basics – how to feed ourselves, what’s good to eat, how to keep clean, do our household chores, how to do for and love one another. That’s utterly important. It safeguards our entry into the greater world around us. Ever scholarly, the learning continues lifelong. A Cancer holds a wealth of knowledge.

As we grow, our skills start shaping. Many share family businesses. Some work we do because it is life maintenance, rent to be paid, and some we do because it is our passion to do so. We have verve, a natural intelligence for it. People see that about us and want to do thriving business with us. We are good at it and we become more of ourselves, have a fullness, a wellspring of fertile richness. With that strength we develop a greater ability to care for others, bring them forward in their lives as well, blessing us all! We become a contributing person in our community, a respected leader.

In many communities there is a natural goodness and diversity, a unity that creates a greater culture that encourages kindness to all. The community has the abundance to afford to welcome strangers who in turn make their contributions that increase that abundance even further! Travelers are often surprised and deeply pleased how much we who seem so different are so much alike. We become special people to them and they to us.

Relationships we form are tender and forever. We share shelter in storms, tend each other when there are tummy troubles, nurse the orphans. Intimacy is productive, babies flourish. Big families often. If not, adoptions are made. If your partner is a Cancer, be sure to snuggle and cuddle frequently. If they get crabby once in awhile, love them up! Feelings hurt? Listen, let them know how sorry you are they feel badly. If you messed up, apologize and make amends as promptly as possible. Amends means, breakfast in bed, perhaps a favorite sweet treat. Chocolate cake and ice cream, or cookies you made yourself would do nicely. Smile.

We are making the future right now as we speak. Our children have our pictures. We carry the gift of a lifetime’s experience that we have blessed them with.

Be ever proud of and grateful for what held you in its arms, the principles of your People. Be loving to the dear humans who love you as well as they can. Pass that love on.

First Leo New Moon!  4 Planets in Leo; Grand Fire Trine!  

Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse!
2nd Grand Fire Trine, Sun/Moon-Jupiter-Saturn Bow Pattern!

Second Leo New Moon SOLAR TOTAL US ECLIPSE!
3rd Grand Fire Trine! Jupiter Sextile Saturn Aug 27

Eclipse Map!

Eclipse Dog Glasses

Here are the three Moons of Leo 2017, July 23, Aug 7, Aug 21! The second day of Leo brings the first of TWO New Moons! The second Moon is the Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse.

The second New Moon in Leo, on the next to last day of Leo, is being referred to by some as the Great American Eclipse because it is the first Total Solar Eclipse visible in the US since 1979, 38 years! It also qualifies as a Black Moon, the third New Moon in a season which has four New Moons.

The day after the New Moon, July 24, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm – everything! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle. It finishes, Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!


First Leo New Moon!  4 Planets in Leo; Grand Fire Trine! 

Friday June 23, at 7:31 PM Pacific, 2 Cancer 47!

Leo 2017 1st New Moon Astrology Chart

The fiery first New Moon has a four planet stellium in Leo, Sun and Moon with Mars, and about to change signs, Mercury, plus the North Node is there too!

Sun and Moon blaze with Mars, winning Leos first place! At zero and one degrees they are in first place as well as with the planet of the first sign, Aries! There is an untarnished gleeful energy. Could be said to be naive and untrained, but the way they see it, there is nothing to stop them either! Without thinking, they waste no time double guessing themselves and succeed at things the more experienced wouldn’t do! With clean intuition, they are fresh and blessed!

The blue triangle, a Grand Trine in fire, is considered lucky! Mercury and Moon’s North Node have consulted with sober Saturn, and are already seeing the wild potentials of Uranus in Aries! Inventions and solutions both!

Mercury is just a tad over a degree inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. Attention swings to the undercurrent, healing needed, subtle teachings soon to seep to a conscious knowing. Old hurts are reframed in a personal creative expression that changes them from dark to light, generously giving life again where it was feared to have been lost. There is a standing up, straightening the spine, a true-to-the-heart radiance.

Venus is at 20 Gemini, has left aspects with Jupiter and Pluto behind. She is now opposite Father Time, Saturn, afraid she might not be able to speak her mind, be doubted if she did. She may hesitate, yet feels there is a duty to be true. This jewel has too much beauty to neglect. Saturn offers his hand to help her get to her feet and cross the Threshold. He surprisingly encourages her, she gets to the crux of her messages at a perfect time!

August 4 brings the major background aspect, Jupiter square Pluto. It has been within 5 degrees of its square since June 23. This first Leo New Moon prepares the way, gives personal insights on how you can best see the square through. The square precedes the Leo/Aquarius August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse. The square is a rift maker and mender. What no longer serves falls apart, opening the gateway for healing and moving through to higher ground. Sometimes it’s piddly annoyances, other times you pray for your love, money and life! It takes away and doesn’t always give back. You may find yourself clearing the decks, lightening the load. Such a relief that’s over. You have room for new ways now.

Things won’t be entirely done by Aug 7. The Eclipse will deepen our understanding. No more dead wood to carry. The challenges you faced, if it aspects your personal chart, show you that you can work that hard for recovery or building strong good things that will last. The new foundation is better placed. The aspects in the New and Full Moon charts are excellent. You can do it!

2017 Total Solar Eclipse Tour Jacksonhole Buffalo

Many exciting summer plans are being made to include the Total Solar Eclipse Aug 21! This tour is currently fully booked, but there is a waitlist, and who knows, maybe they will add another group!


Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse!
2nd Grand Fire Trine, Sun/Moon-Jupiter-Saturn Bow Pattern!

Monday August 7, at 11:11 AM Pacific, 15 Aquarius 25!

Leo 2017 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse Astrology Chart

The August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse spans from the Sun in its own sign Leo, glory be, to the Moon in wild and far reaching Aquarius! This calls for a gathering of lazy beachlings to a floating-on-the-winds hot air balloon ride!

The fire signs again prevail in a Grand Trine, this time loosely connected, with Moon between Saturn and Uranus, and Jupiter between Sun and Saturn! Uranus is in Aries, a mighty spark! Mars, Sun and the Moon’s North Node are in Leo, giving from the Heart of Light! Saturn is in Sagittarius, guiding the learning with well timed encouragement.

Sun/Moon-Jupiter-Saturn Bow Pattern!

Bows are formed when two planets are equidistant sextiles to a planetary axis. Moon and Sun are our axis. Sun sextiles Jupiter and Moon sextiles Saturn! Said another way, Sun trines Saturn, Moon trines Jupiter! See the three connected green lines in the chart connecting to the red line across the chart from Moon to Sun? That’s the Bow! The green lines create advantageous links between the planets across the red line, in this case, the Full Moon axis. Jupiter is lucky, Saturn gets the job done!

Moon trine Jupiter offers a significant public venue! Moon in Aquarius reads the mood of the people, unifies the community, spreads the word throughout the Internet, across the world! Friend to friend a collective is formed, changes made. Jupiter in Libra has super fortunate liaisons, generously funds collaborative efforts to educate to the furthest reaches, travel intelligently!

Sun crossed Mars July 26, still motivated by spirited Mars coming to a lucky sextile touch with Jupiter Aug 10! In this case it’s a dance, special sweet relationships! Put on your best shoes and win the race! New relationships will stir your blood.

Sun and Moon are abundant in their sextile and trine with Jupiter! Sun in his own sign Leo and Jupiter are both natural teachers! Leo is known for a dramatic and excellent performance, full of life and color! Jupiter is a grand storyteller, and in Libra embellishes his tales with insights and facts about people from far away places. Together, Sun in Leo and Jupiter in Libra play off each other with spellbinding and artfully inspiring entertainment!

Moon in Aquarius is also delighted with all the amazing people Jupiter in Libra connects them with! Could be the party of a lifetime, an extraordinary singer, an inventor with an uncanny idea! Some differences will not be bridged by having a mutual friend, so don’t expect everyone to become bosom buds. To everyone’s surprise, some unlikely people may become lifelong couples or business partners!

Sun and Moon are also in excellent aspects with Saturn in Sagittarius. The Sun trines; the Moon sextiles Saturn in just hours! It’s wonderfully productive on large scale projects, well monitored over a longer period of time, and includes intriguing foreign principles as well as imports! Exporting goes well too. Teaching goes well. There are fine presentations, that combine just the right balance of local necessity and international ventures.

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to get engaged. He turns forward Sept 5.

The August 4 Jupiter square Pluto has barely passed. If it activated your chart, it may have seemed a disaster, you may have narrowly avoided it, got sideswiped, or navigated it with panache! This Eclipse will deepen your perspective and encourage you to see new possibilities now that the old debris has been cleared. Give yourself a good shake, throw your shoulders back, lift your chin and go for it!

Eclipse Total Solar 8 11 1999 Fred Espenak

Composite image of a 1999 total solar eclipse by Fred Espenak. Read his article on the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse, first one visible from contiguous North America since 1979.

Please do think of the amazing energy that is in a direct line with us at the Total Solar Eclipse! From Father Sun, then Moon filtering, transmitting, then Us on Earth! From the Heart of Light to and through Mama Moon, she buffering, and in return, transmitting our current conditions and information to Father Sun. Conduit, Lightline, Channel, Passage, spiritual Superhighway!



Second Leo New Moon SOLAR TOTAL US ECLIPSE!  
3rd Grand Fire Trine! Jupiter Sextile Saturn Aug 27

Monday August 21, at 11:30 AM Pacific, 28 Leo 53!

Leo 2017 Aug 21 Total Solar Eclipse Shawnee NF IL Greatest Duration Astrology Chart

What perfect charts are opening the way to our Total Solar Eclipse! Clearing the past, lots of winning high energy, gloriously being yourself, a strong focus on romance and relationships, teaching and giving, creative radiance and a willing heart of Love!

Customarily I calculate the New/Full Moon charts for my location, Santa Barbara CA, but this one is calculated for the location of the Greatest Duration, GD, of the Eclipse, Shawnee National Forest, just south of Carbondale IL, at the time of GD there, 1:20 PM CDT! The actual New Moon is 1:30 PM CDT. Please see all about the Eclipse here!

Mars, Initiation and Activation, is still in the picture, being the first one of the three Leo planets in the Eclipse chart. It just sextiled Lucky Jupiter  the day before – the race was won, and is powerfully finding its mark with its trine to the Master, Saturn Aug 22! Things are getting done with perfect timing, and they will last. Saturn has felt Mars coming and is ready now to turn with the tides.

Mercury is retrograde in one of her own signs, Virgo. Retrograde is a time of deeper delving. She’s taking notes, telling the story of our realizations. As she writes, she transposes here and there, things get out of order and the revelation is made, an accidental new order assuredly happens! There are times she forgets what happened exactly and the mind of the mind is invited to insert a different resolution, fill in the blanks from a more current context. Eclipses are all about Revelation!

The Moon’s 24 degree North Node ties the early twenty degree planets, Mars and Saturn, with the later twenty degree planets, Uranus, Moon and Sun to make a THIRD Grand Fire Trine! Sun trined Uranus Aug 20, 11:23 PM Pacific, Moon trined 10:38 AM Pacific Eclipse morning. Leo, the sign of the SUN, is the LIGHT! Uranus is the charger, the planet of Moon and Sun’s opposite sign, Aquarius, the sign of electricity, LIGHTNING! We can SEE! We awake from our slumbers, are enlightened in some fabulous way! It can be thunderous or some gentle insight that changes our ways. It frees us from our Past, the flower blooms.

At late 28 degrees Leo, Moon and Sun are at the very last of Leo. The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, surely the Princess! Virgo is the sign of service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo.

At 28 degrees Moon and Sun are finishing up Leo in this super trine with Uranus. There is a supernatural harmony. Egos are nurtured and friended. There is a celebration of the genius of difference and profound awakening. Divine minds. It’s a time of wholeness. One Heart, many Souls.

Jupiter is leaving the Aug 4 square with Pluto behind. There will be remnants for awhile, ghosties that will need your attention so you don’t fall back. Any difficult times that have jumped on you will make you all the more determined to turn the tables, plug any leaks, clean up any last messes and move on to more amenable circumstances.

The once only Aug 27 Jupiter sextile Saturn is an outer planet combination offers opportunities of prosperity, enjoyable work, a solid future! Saturn is retrograde, going back to meet Jupiter. Each is willing. Jupiter in Libra has ideas of expansion, increasing the territory, franchises, more education, travel, publishing, including people from diverse cultures. Saturn in Sagittarius is the expert who builds the structures and systems, does real estate, the scientist, laws, the commander, CEO, master of timing and resources, considers age, the importance of Fathering, mentoring. He wants to see good things get done in a timely fashion, works hard for the goals. If it aspects your chart in a good way, pay particular attention Aug 24-26. See your astrologer!

This Eclipse will activate those things specifically in the US! Moon and Sun are teamed up in Sun’s own sign, the sign of Light, powering up the generators!

The Lights are ON!

New Faery SuperMoon!  4 Planets in Cancer; Mars, Jupiter & Neptune Set!

New Faery SuperMoon!  – 4 Planets Cancer; Mars, Jupiter, Neptune Set! 

Friday June 23, at 7:31 PM Pacific, 2 Cancer 47! 

Crescent Moon Fairy Day June 24, Star!

June 23 to 25, NEW MOON, Midsummer & Fairy Day Weekend! Friday June 23 our Cancer New Moon is the day before Fairy Day June 24, Fairy Day Weekend! Just after Summer Solstice, many celebrate MidSummer, also known as Lithia, from dusk June 23 to and on June 24! In some countries June 24 is a public holiday. Since 1974, Santa Barbara CA has hosted an annual Summer Solstice celebration, typically on the weekend of or the weekend after the actual solstice. It includes a festival and parade. There will be beach bonfires and revelry!

This is the third New SuperMoon in a row, the last New SuperMoon of 2017! December’s Full Moon will be the last SuperMoon of 2017. This time, being in Cancer, the sign of emotions, the tides of our feelings may be heightened, our caring quotient raised. Children, especially some Cancer children, may need extra care, stick to the routine and feed the favorites! Adults may appreciate a tad more TLC as well!

Mama Moon is in her own sign, giving maximum support to Father Sun. She makes him feel the tides, cycles. He in her sign, she has the greatest opportunity to wash him clean, sweep through his Light, clear the cobwebs in the corners. Her divine feminine presence calls him to extend his radiance to all women and children, the feminine in all beings. They feel the traditions of all Time, in all places. There is a special consideration of cultures of the world, the knitting of communities, heart to heart.

New Moon, new beginnings, surrender to the wellspring within. There is unity in the merger of Moon and Sun. The bond is core deep in Cancer. She more than thinks it, she feels it completely. Inspiration is the conduit from things of our culture and time, the matriarchal lineage that precedes us, to our current knowing. Like a Kundalini of feeling, or a starburst of enlightening, a door opens for a few magical moments! Once seen/felt, there is a call to step forward. Cancer is a strong sign. Homes are made, children are born and raised by Her. When she takes on a mission, go with Her!

There are FOUR planets in Cancer, the Moon in her own sign, the New Moon conjunct Mercury, Mars not much further on, leading the way! Mother Moon is as intuitive as Mercury is logical. Moon will ‘feel’ Mercury’s words, see what’s helpful about them, and add her nurturing quality to them. Instead of it’s cold outside today, she says oh, grab your jacket, you might need it! Moon puts all the words together and kneads them into the Lunar cycle, incorporates them fully, lets them rise together. It’s an intuitively intelligent blend. Mercury has the ideas; Moon puts them into business! Commodities, you know. Super aware of public reaction, especially of women.

Sun, Moon and Mercury only aspect each other. This combination acts on its own, not closely connected with any other aspects, though all three of them will soon connect with Mars! Moon does with Mars midday Pacific time the next day! She feels how eager he is to press ahead. There is literally fire in the belly and since they both are in Cancer Moon truly understands that he must! She’s willing to help. Mercury conjuncts Mars midday the 28th. He and Mars are quick on their feet. Cancer is what we call a Cardinal sign. They get things started, initiate action, are the first to do it. Tradition may take a front seat, or be the backdrop that makes it all possible!

Please be cautious of hasty hurtful angry words. There could be more crabbiness than usual and it could mount up. It may clear the deck or end a friendship instantly. Talk sooner. Take time out. Leave before it gets bad. Don’t do those late at night tired talks. Agree to sleep on it knowing much will be resolved by your inner self in the dream time. Come at it fresh in the morning. It will be much quicker then, in fact you both may realize it was not such a big thing after all. If it is something, the resolution may be super simple.

Sun is another story! Mars is moving fast, Sun doesn’t catch up until after both have changed signs, July 26 at 4 LEO! Sun will be in his own sign; fiery Mars in the fiery sign of kings! Having both been together in Cancer, they saw what needs doing in behalf of families, housing, hame community. It is their hearts to use colorful creative solutions, make a place, maybe a school, for others to lend their brilliance and inspiration as well!

For his part, Mars squares Jupiter late the next day and trines Neptune through late the 25th Pacific times. Mars is so quick to see, especially in intuitive Cancer. Jupiter in Libra is busy seeing both sides, trying to negotiate. He gets lots of admiration for his broad vision, being a world traveler, working with the arts. Mars says, get to the point, make up your mind, take care of your loved ones at home and do it NOW! Children are hurting while you are exercising your arrogance and intelligence. Ok, says Jupiter, we need to get some laws on the books and find supportive alliances. Mars pricks Jupiter’s conscience about priorities. Jupiter can do a great job, just need a little motivation. He can take those kids on trips and get scholarships for them to the art school too!

At home there could be exaggerated discord, fires of sorts. No fighting in the kitchen. In town, stay out of dark allies, and don’t break the law. In the world there could be attacks, or maybe a felt need to defend one’s homeland and preserve our principles. Religion may factor in, and most assuredly, politics. Keep your first aid kit and insurance up to date.

Mars trine Neptune will help you dance through this. When the bullet comes, don’t be there. Do your Tai Chi. Mars in Cancer is adept at turning sideways and making a much smaller target, able to slither through the smallest spaces and magically dis/appear somewhere else! Neptune in his own sign Pisces has similar virtues. Both have spiritual intention. Mars is the initiation leader, moving us forward from old ways, literally changing our identity as we arrive in the new destination! Neptune is the shapeshifter of consciousness, freeing us from confusion and illusion. Mars in Cancer is active and stirs the waves of oceanic Pisces. He steps into the Pisces dreamtime without ceremony, and the Pisces magician is glad to be awakened! Dreams come true!

Jupiter connects the loop by inconjuncting Neptune! The New Moon is connected through the links Moon, Mercury and Sun will make with Mars, that in turn aspects both Jupiter and Neptune! Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune is the underlying important long term outer planet aspect that this New Moon is all about. They first conjuncted Oct 23, 2016. Currently they have been in station, holding the connection from their 2nd to 3rd aspect, within 1 degree since before May 17th! They are closing to make their final inconjunct July 4, just before the July 8 Full Buck/Hay Moon! This New Moon is the one offering core support, unconditional nurturing, key intuition for clear seeing through these final days.

As Mars stirs Neptune in harmony from the sign Cancer of Lunar cycles, Jupiter is seeking oblique openings into the far reaches of the greatest understanding of all. It’s not just profound words, righteous ethics, holy principles, but more, matters of the Soul. The unique lifetimes of Being. How that all fits in planetary progress as a growing conscious Entity in the Universe. Due to massive political changes at this time, huge adjustments are being made, solutions sought. It is becoming clear what is most important and what part each of us needs to do personally.

Jupiter is ever optimistic, and with Libra partnerships and alliances world wide, much can be done. It’s not just for fun and games, lightweight pretty social events all the time anymore. Our connections are more meaningful than ever, and can be powerful. Neptune could have been meditating, but now, perhaps, it needs more to be a wakeful observant walking meditation of action. The Savior needs to do some saving! The old non-violent martial forms were always about self preservation, inner strength. The Silent Warriors taught resistance and success by the example of living an exemplary life, living true. Jupiter in Libra has the scanner. It seeks that balance between principle and action, deeper insights through connections. It seeks those who have the inner fibre, that can be called on to stand strong.

Last month’s note: Jupiter in Libra inconjuncts that Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter shifts gears, directions and alliances. Good thing Neptune is quick on the uptake and understands most of the time. Jupiter likes social chatting and international conditions. There are times Pisces prefers solitude, to gently contemplate freely, making associations of mind and Spirit. He seeks intuition rather than advice from well dressed experts. Yet both have their truths and offerings. Important not to judge or to slur each other’s style. Sometimes legal matters take precedence, other times it’s the Court of Heaven that offers insight to the right thing to do. Rather than living in self chosen poverty, as Pisces can sometimes do, Jupiter in Libra leads us to the right school that brings you to the door of happiness doing what you always wanted to do! Could be art, music, design, being with people who celebrate exactly who you are!

Additional aspects, not in this Mars/Jupiter/Neptune set. Venus trines Pluto in earth signs Taurus and Capricorn. Venus in Taurus wants every comfort possible, sweetly. Pluto in Capricorn can easily do without, even prides itself on how less is more. In conservation that is admirable. And you can do without this to have that! Venus may pamper the old gent like never before, spoiling his integrity or helping him know he deserves more, the best! She may show him some values he just never thought about before. He may curb her self indulgence. A nice partnership may be formed. He may fund her campaign, or surprisingly, she may have the funds to start the foundation herself, and he may donate further endowments for expansion. Healing on many levels are likely – body, skin and bones.

The North Node is retrograding back to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Karmic solutions are loved to growing beyond old fears of new territory. Teaching and pathfinding, intentions are realistically expanded, worked at daily with pleasure. The North Node recently also trined Uranus in Aries. Changes and new ventures were led out into the open, action taken to assure their continued success since Saturn has been on board as well. New friends and business alliances have been made. A union has been called into being, many Souls seeking the same goals.

Not all has been easy with Saturn having been square Chiron April 30. Saturn and Chiron are separating their square by 5 degrees now. They will be back but not until Nov 2. Though there were no major world events close to April 30, the threats of heartbreaking news was with us, and some suffered personal defeats in love, health or business. The aspect is fading now, but do continue to repair, make amends, heal what can be healed. Learn what you can, be kind to yourself and others. Less of being the martyr, more of standing good heartedly for potential and possibilities. Be real and work for it. Be counted. See more, #3 at this link

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close trine, but retrograding away from Uranus. Work and education, friendships and networking are expanding the opportunities! Cross cultural expeditions bring new products. Uranus in Aries researches, has breakthroughs, uncanny knowledge that spikes more trials. Innovative solutions occur step after step. It just keeps going! Real estate demographics change. Professional goals broaden. Aging brings more satisfaction than ever. See more, #1 at this link

This is the very special time of year that Moon and Sun are in Moon’s own sign! Tune in. Sync up with the cycles. Blessed be….

Full Buck – Hay Moon! 4 Planet Full Moon Axis: Moon/Pluto & Sun/Mars!

Saturday July 8, 9:07 PM Pacific at 17 Capricorn 09

Cancer 2017 Full Moon Apartments Rand Elliott Oklahoma City

…to live in a piece of art, it’s an experience. Definitely non traditional, but intriguing. Rand Elliot designed this building for midtown Oklahoma City. It is a 10-unit apartment building with an oculus in the middle that will be called The Full Moon. You can see why Rand is called the Space Whisperer!

The building is on a North/South axis! Here’s what it will look like at night – imagine the Full Moon views!

Cancer 2017 Full Moon Apartments Rand Elliott Oklahoma City Night!

Though Cancer is a water sign, moist and fertile, and veggies are growing prolifically in the summer Sun, the Full Hay Moon is also the time grasses are drying and first hay being baled! The Capricorn Moon is aware of the timing, willing to work hard to get winter stores in for the stock. Bales are a good sturdy and useful shape that fit so snugly together on trucks and in barns. Pleases a Capricorn’s heart! Perfect time for summer party hayrides!

Full Moons are expansive, broadening. Cancer is Mom at home, lots of maternal feelings, protective; Capricorn is Dad the realist at work supporting home and family, concise and getting the job done on time. Cancer is nurturer, babies at breasts; Cap is the shelter builder. They are traditional signs, and often have a successful family business that may have been passed down through a parent. Moon is into commodities, knows what the public is up for, super aware of cycles! Capricorn is professional, the CEO, who is in strong connection with the accountant, the current ROI dept by dept. Together, Cancer/Capricorn have a lot to be proud of.

This Full Moon is powerfully tied with Pluto in Capricorn, 1 degree conjunct the Moon, 17/18 Capricorn! She may be caught in a web of the past, limited by imposed rules. Hard to get traction, missed opportunities. There may be secret alliances, the need to ‘pass the test,’ to join up. There are also possible other mergers, the company to be incorporated. Insurance and security are important. There can be death and inheritances. Healthwise, clean organic safe foods, detoxing takes precedence. Not overeating is best, but this can be a bingeing aspect too. Pay attention to skin, bone, knees. Love life needs to be well cared for – at worst it is a painful obsessive affair. At best it is a deepening of a true solid relationship. Pluto is the Ninja planet, the behind the scenes protector/warrior. Don’t pester him/her too much…

Mars is across the table with Sun! It will take some time before the potentials hinted at may come to light and a bond made. They don’t make their connection until Sun catches up after both have changed signs, July 26 at 4 LEO! Both fire planets, they are swimming along together in water sign Cancer, aware of the new cycle unfolding before them. They are feeling their way, intuiting and anticipating each other. By the time they get into Leo, they know each other pretty well and the starburst is made at the end of July! Some embellishment, a personal touch, lighting or color makes it super exciting for the launch! Have a terrific grand Grand Opening!

When there are disagreements, take it easy. Moon in Cap is subject to depression, discouragement, intimidation. They can seem tough, but it’s not always so. Mars is the upfront warrior. Sun and Mars are feisty and can be a tad unthinking, enjoying their independence, not wanting to be told what to do by any man, woman, child, parent or teacher! They can resist when it was their own idea! Stay aware. Check in time to time. Update and get updates, and if necessary, clean up the mess.

Thank goodness for the Mercury/Venus sextile! Mercury is just leaving, but the past few days there have been some amenable talks. Venus in Gemini has shared a ton of ideas, introduced neighbors, locals, twins and siblings! She’s been gracious and shared valuable information that has potential in several directions at once! Don’t underestimate her because she looks too young. Mercury has cruised into Leo, and is the planet of Gemini! Mercury has ideas that are big spirited, open hearted in Leo. Can be selfish, but are usually generous too! There are things to teach, ideas are bright! Love IS Light! Brainstorm and collect the outstanding thoughts! Let Gemini weave them along the Internet. Blog like crazy! Illustrate so artfully it can’t be resisted.

Mars is exact inconjunct Saturn in Sagittarius at 22 degrees! In Cancer, Mars is more likely not to be taken in by Saturn in Sag’s scholarly reputation though it is tempting. Mars in Cancer can tempt Saturn to quit wandering, there’s no place like home, to come back where the grass is greener. Mars reminds Saturn, the planet of the sign opposite Cancer, that there’s more than philosophy, there are passionate feelings too. That each culture is a ‘home’ to its people, not just something to be studied. Saturn invites Mars to travel with him for a time and see how faiths can be so different yet there is so much about people everywhere that is the same.

A lot hotter is Mars coming to square Uranus in Aries, Mars’ sign! They are in sniffing distance now, building to exact July 17! Each is independent and freedom loving! Quick, quick, quick! Sometimes accidental, they might fall into something so different and perfect! Not usually such a risk taker, Cancer may be shocked at events, certainly shaken loose from what used to be, and some of that her own doing! Sex may be bold, offensive or a surprise so electric you lost your socks! You don’t know whether to be sad or happy!

The Fixed Star Vega is at 15 Capricorn 19 within two degrees of our Moon in Capricorn! Vega is a pale sapphire star in the Constellation Lyra, the Harp of Orpheus. According to Elsbeth Ebertin: ‘In a good cosmic configuration, Vega is supposed to give artistic talents especially for music and acting, but also a liking for good living. With eccentric artists, this may lead to a debauched life. In connection with the Moon or Neptune a tendency for occult and mysticism may be given.’ Some say it covers everything it touches with enchanting charisma.

Vega is also close in square with Jupiter and sextile Neptune. In the square with Jupiter it may be entirely too much of a good thing, exaggerated principles, seductive teachings that are too good to be true by unqualified instructors. It could be pure grace sextile Neptune. It could put you in touch with dreams beyond your wildest beliefs, spellbinding artistic and musical performances that transport the audience.

The last Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is exact July 4, and is quite close still, but will be fading. Recently this has been a backdrop aspect since May 10, potently in a 1 degree aspect all this time! This aspect was the one immediately preceding the Nov 8 Presidential Elections, and initiated a set of SIX aspects late 2016 that were spread throughout 2016, finishing Nov 11, 2017.

Optimistic Jupiter in Libra visions as far off in time and space as it can! Neptune IS time and space, boundless. An inconjunct aspect invites exploration, peripheral vision, a detour to another dimension! It’s a bit off center, disturbing, but exactly as it should be to get our attention!

Jupiter in Libra is like tilting the tides of humanity back and forth until the remaining ones stand at the center, able to be stable as the world shifts around them. Jupiter always looks for the best, finely tuned in Libra! Neptune in Pisces runs the tides and shifts the sand we stand on. We need to be able to not just stand, but to flow, to compensate, at times swim and merge with higher powers, to make adjustments fluidly. Dreams can come true as we learn divine navigation.

Jupiter wants to know about Matters of the Soul, and they think Neptune/Pisces knows. They want to know if you are a True Believer and what that means. With Neptune in Pisces, the quest goes far and wide. There may be no single answer, but instead, a potpourri of Evolutions.

Whether you return to the trail you first started on, or take the new trail you find yourself, either way, you are not the person you used to be. You have seen some mysteries, there has been doubt, delving and wonderings, questions that will take lifetimes to answer. Sometimes it’s only the turn of your head, a moment’s glimpse, a singular flash of insight that leads you to a new vision. Right on spiritual compass, the transmutation happens.

Moon/Pluto and Sun/Mars is a Warrior’s axis. Live deep, Stand tall, Love well!

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Iman, Bowie's Amazing Wife

IMAN: When I started in the fashion industry, it was unheard of for models of color to be featured on major magazines covers, or to work for exclusive fashion and beauty houses around the world. But you can’t be afraid to break down barriers. Before modeling, I came from a strong family, I was a college student. I traveled and knew five languages. So, modeling became a platform for what I do now as CEO of IMAN Cosmetics [premiere line for Women with Skin of Color], and for authoring books, being Global Ambassador for KEEP A CHILD ALIVE, hosting PROJECT RUNWAY in Canada and creating GLOBAL CHIC on HSN.

July 25, 1955 Iman has Sun, Jupiter/Mars and Pluto in LEO! SuperModel is just the right term for her. She stands 5′ 9″, 1″ shorter than her husband David Bowie was. David had Moon, Saturn and Pluto in LEO, so they were a brilliant couple, each a power in their own right! Iman’s Sun is 1 degree Leo, a degree of Initiation. Jupiter, fame, and Mars, the planet of leadership have no hesitation in modeling the adventure! Pluto is power and charisma, and Iman is gifted! Leo is generous and Pluto funds grants. She has a big heart. See her Chart

She has three planets in Cancer, Mercury/Venus and Uranus. Cancer is as nurturing as Leo is loving! Mercury and Venus together give a blessing of communicating precious words to women and children, families. Uranus thinks of more than the children at home; it wants to help the children of the world. Her Moon is in Libra, intercultural, across ages, religions. Her beauty abounds and attracts the support she needs to do her work here on the planet – promoting confidence in women of color, creating better living conditions, health, and prosperity for families.

IMAN: Two pieces of advice: Embrace change, because you never know what’s around the corner and don’t settle. The day you settle for less, is the day you will get less.

Leo 2016 Planetary 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]

Leo TimeLine!

Mars finishes the entire retrograde cycle August 22, then it’s on we go onto new adventures well founded by the sorting we have been doing since February!

The next outer planet combinations are August 12 and 13 when Jupiter makes the third and last opposition Chiron in Pisces and inconjunct Uranus in Aries! 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 opposition 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!

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Leo!

Leo Lions Nuzzle

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. There is an affinity between Capricorn and Leo. They both like the best! Capricorn is proud of that Leo verve and is warmed by their love and inspired by their vitality! Leo is proud of their top of the mark Capricorn and glad for their financial successes because Leos do love to spend whether it’s the latest fashion or a fine gift! Pluto, however, is a ‘square’ planet to Leo. Time to stop that frivolous spending, take care of the business at hand for now, and they see that as long term business. Leo is called to teach techniques of constructive resolution that will bring meaningful real change. It is not so much of a performance anymore. It is a joining of forces. Leo is a strong sign, will carry a good weight and has staying power.

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! Leo loves playing different roles, finding the SELF as it exists in many beings. Pisces and Neptune are off to the side of Leo’s opposite Aquarius. Neptune distracts Leo a bit from its center, giving a glimpse of a different vantage point. Neptune softens Leo’s will that Leo may put on others, the demands Leo may have. At the same time, there is a blooming of further Faith to let things happen in their own time as others start to see some of the same things Leo sees as possible. Leo doesn’t give up and Neptune flutters the subtle fan, tidally washes the way for dreams to come true. Stay steady in the quest; wait for it.

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. Uranus is the planet of Leo’s opposite sign Aquarius! Step across the divide, oh Wild and Fair Ones! Aries won’t let sleeping Leo cats lie! Uranus in Aries is a spark so brilliant that it gets even bright Leo’s attention! Leo likes doing things their own way and classy too, so Aries may seem a little loud and undignified at times, and pushy. Hmpf. Uranus doesn’t especially care what either thinks, just as long as we are all free to make change. Uranus and Aries both love waking people up, and they enjoy prime prey like Leo that is often fixed in their own opinions and proud of it! But Leo likes big and better, and more and showy, so ultimately they are in! Bring the chariot, we’re going to the fundraiser ball!

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. Leos are lovers and successful business is good for marriage, and lovely for Leo spending! Chiron, like Neptune, is askew across the table, so to speak, from Leo. It draws Leo aside and whispers about old love lost, how we may have believed it was all our fault, how that makes us doubt our choices even today. It calls us to understand others have history and troubles too, some even from past lives. We are in this together. Even if we are apart, our thoughts and Spirits intertwine. Soothing and letting go may be our best assurance of clearing the way for future love. It calls us to be with Souls that are healthy, living as we would like to. We can get used to what’s waiting in our step forward into the hitherto unknown. It will take a wee bit of courage.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius. 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. Leo is the sign of teenagers, parties, learning how to be yourself. It’s a crucial time for the teenager in us all! Too much discipline and Spirit is broken. No discipline leaves us abandoned, with no reasonable boundaries. Saturn is Father Time; Leo is Sun’s sign, Father Sun. There is innate Selfness that is self defining. But grieving over a lost Father, the love of one’s Father, is a taint that can shadow one’s life. If you are a Father, know how much that can mean. If you are the child, thank your Father. If you are Fatherless, be your own in a good way best you can.

Sagittarius and Leo are both teacher signs. Leo teaches about Self; Sagittarius, the last fire sign, teaches us how to Seek and teach the teachers how to teach. Both are looking for volume, to amplify, expand. Christmas EVE day, Saturn in Sag will trine Uranus in Aries the first of three times, together harnessing the power of groups of leaders. They are antipodal planets, Saturn of constraint and conservation, Uranus of freedom and flinging the wild bits across the Universe! One is shelter and structure, the other is the primordial explosion into the unknown, catapulted into awakening! Leo is the mid fire sign, so you with planets 18 to 21 degrees Leo will be in Grand Fire Trine with Saturn and Uranus at that time! As Saturn and Uranus are opposites by definition, Sun and Uranus are of opposite Signs! Uranus is the connecting planet. Acceptance of difference, integration of odd talents will be called for to make the harmony of the Grand Trine flow. All fire signs are independent, or want to be, and have an uppity quality. Egos and hefty Spirits will need to appreciate each other’s diversity to gather for effective results. The opportunity is to put every single one to work!

Jupiter in Virgo Virgo is the sign after Leo, tending and organizing their life, making sure their health flourishes, develops skills for good living. Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, the fire sign after Leo. There is a playful quality between them, vying for first place, seeing how far each will go! They like teaching and learning, and Virgo loves to do on the job training. Experience in the field is invaluable. Virgo recognizes raw talent, and helps Leo hone their delivery, gives facts and data for their credibility. Soon, Leo’s presence outdoes their mentor!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Leo is thrilled and flattered. At times they are humbled by Libra’s finesse, but then Jupiter sometimes is a little blunt, so if not too offended, everyone can just lay back and be themselves. However, Leo and Jupiter are prone to exaggeration, if not downright lies, or be misleading when it makes a better story to tell, so be careful who you tell what to and how you tell their story in turn! Be ready to clean up a few little messes, hopefully not a lawsuit, though if it is yours, you are likely to win if your chart connects well to this combination. Jupiter rules races, especially horses, and is often lucky. If Leo gets the scent, they love to gamble, will take the chance, and just might win that too!

They are super traveling companions, enjoy different cultures, the zest of survival in difficult circumstances. Leo is excited to get outside the usual frame, and their creative expression is levered right up out of the box, their market broadens! A higher view reveals remarkable potential. Special relationships focus the insights. What used to be a mystery, an unspoken wondering, is now delightfully part of your new Self! Libra is partnerships, marriages, could be a divine Sweetheart!
 

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 astrologers for the whole picture!

Have a great new year!

Leo Love & Glory!

Leo Coco Chanel, Fabulous Designer - The 'Boy' Look

Leo is a ‘boy’ sign, not famous for its bosoms. Here is French fashion designer Coco Chanel, sporting a lovely feminine ‘suit and hat.’ Born 8-19-1883, she had Sun and Venus in Leo, Mars sextile her Sun.

From Mae West to Mick Jagger, we are enthralled with bigger than life memorable Leos! Mae was clever funny and sexy as hell! Rolling Stone Englishman Mick’s sexy stage presence is huge and he has our attention to this day! And Sir Mick ain’t quittin’! At 72 this rocker and his 29-year-old girlfriend, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick are expecting his 8th child! Leo’s love kids and virtually are kids in adult clothing!

Leo children are athletic and courageous, no tree too high! They are leaders of their mates, and are often kindly to one who cries or is alone. The other side of the coin is shy beyond words and may take years to grow out of it. Either way, they are known to be stubborn and want what they want, and they want it now! As they age, they can be more patient, but they will steadily advocate their position until they win out.

Encourage all Leos to be creative at every age! Put the camera in their hands. Give them the water colors, the guitar. Put them in the play. Dress-ups and fantastic hair are terrific fun! Give them the dance shoes. They will give spirited shining performances and be featured at the gallery! They are the Full Moons of our night skies!

Teens and young Leos may be impatient with schooling, but the right classes and instructors will keep them on the edge of their seats. They need praise and recognition to thrive to maximum. Their downfalls may be being bullies or arrogant. Both factors are fear based, and Leos want to be loved, adored. They need to know we all have limitations, including them, and that’s ok. We can be loved just the way we are when we are as we are. And sometimes we all make all too human mistakes. It helps if they know it isn’t always their turn. Also, there’s a distinction between being admired because you breathe and admired for what you have contributed. Both are nice.

Careers need to be large enough to accommodate their talent! As little ones, don’t overwhelm them with your expectations, but don’t be surprised if they want more than what you would let them have. As young people, doing something that makes their heart sing makes them learn fast, achieve higher positions early on. They can bring rave reviews to your business. Send them to teaching and coaching seminars. Let them be on their own enough to find their own style of leadership.

Heart and Spine. Health and robust activity requires a good heart and a strong spine. Standing up to your life and meeting it with love, being who you ARE, loving yourself are gifts. Being ‘selfish’ is an exploration of your character. When you are in your personal niche, it becomes self realization. We create ourselves as we go, changing, flexing our latest muscles, feeling good about life.

As elders, Leos can stand tall in their Spirit. They are revered, respected. There is always some notable feature. Elder women may be classy dressers. Elder men may be quite the gentleman, always treating their woman like a lady.

Live deep, stand tall, love well!

New Moon   – Venus/Uranus Trine Galactic Center! Jupiter/Chiron/Uranus!

Tuesday Aug 2, 1:44 PM Pacific at 10 Leo 58

Crescent Moon Woman Feet Up Olbiński
Sweet surrealism by Rafał Olbiński, Polish illustrator, painter, and educator, living in the United States.

Hot pants Mars leaves Scorpio, enters Sagittarius Aug 2 at 10:49 AM Pacific. We’ve got places to go! It finishes the last lap of its retrograde pattern Aug 22, the day the Sun enters Virgo! Much of what has been waded through the past few months, since it started in February, has reached conclusions, some better than hoped for. People will be generous these last 20 days in Sagittarius. Mars is innovative and it is inspiring to see how much you can do yourself! Keep telling the story of your hopes and that moment when the scales tip! Listen for that inevitable support for things you need help with. It may not come in the package you expected, and there may be a go between here and there! With Mars in Sagittarius it may conclude swiftly, so hang onto your hat!

The New Moon is generally thought to be a quietening time, but in fire sign Leo and with Mars, a fire planet, swinging the bat in fire sign Sagittarius?! And just because it is a moonless night doesn’t mean there isn’t a mighty dance going on! This New Moon is in LEO, Father Sun’s sign! He infuses Mother Moon with all the Love he can give! HE IS THE LIGHT! She is so profoundly ‘enlightened!’ She loves him back, and in turn will be distributing that Light to all, especially the children! Leo is one of the teaching signs, a sign of role models. Remember your important impact wherever you are – at the bus stop, the clinic, in front of the City Council! Your bright smile and a hello may save a life. You saw them and respected them with your love. It makes a difference. It’s time to celebrate!

The New Moon makes two close aspects. 1) It has just trined Saturn. Moon and Saturn both have to do with the past, some think Karmic, old matters of Mother/Father. Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us of our intrinsic ethics and responsibilities, our commitments of good faith. Saturn requires our travels to be for more profound reasons, our learning to have purpose and to work hard for our certificates, permits, accomplishments. Leo can be more dramatic than Saturn approves of, but may be the key to getting donations for the cause! A gala! Leo may be late, may be the lazy lion, but when personally motivated, they are unstoppable, sweeping others right along with them, bright inspiration, and it’s fun!

2) Moon and Sun are oblique with Neptune, what we call an inconjunct aspect. Neptune may wither in the glare, and that is noticed. It may not come up in conversation, but a question is posed, what about that? It may be a haunting matter, am I ok, what can I, if I should, do any differently…. Or, Neptune may be immediately on spot, sensing subtle adjustments that make more magic, a support figure you didn’t expect! There may be the reminder not to sell your Soul or disillusioned by too much admiration or drugs that could mar your truest presentation. Some distractions widen our Spirit others are just a bad dream.

The South Node, on a 19 year cycle, is just about to kiss Neptune! Neptune will be a portal to what was a spiritual condition of the past. We may have been a savior or a victim, we may need forgiveness. Current addictions will need addressing. The dragon scales of myths and misconceived judgements will fall away leaving a bare spot, maybe a bit raw at first, a vulnerable feeling. Maybe you need to grab the dragon or maybe you need to be very silent, very still, and just listen.

Jupiter is coming up on the August 12 last opposition Chiron and August 13 last inconjunct Uranus! This is an important set because it will happen in reverse after Jupiter goes into Libra Sep 9. In December, Jupiter will oppose Uranus and inconjunct Chiron the last day of the year! That will be their first encounter in that combination, two more to follow during 2017. What we do now stirs that energy, explores what is needed to make adjustments. Recent events, Orlando, Dallas, bring up the need for a lot more change. The aspect combinations to come starting in December may have more shocking fallout than what has already happened. See more

Mercury in Virgo is making its way to square, challenge Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury is clever and quick, and Virgo considers how to organize every detail. It can create a smooth working system or something that drudges and falls boringly from its own weight. Let it breathe. Step back, cock your head for a look from a different angle. Saturn in Sag wants to get to the point, and get there on time. Once assessed, the job may be entirely dropped, and rightfully so. Saturn may tell a truth you can’t deny. Or, it may surprise you, corral the pieces and shape things up into a divine working order for very little cost! Might take some contributions of your time, but the project may be most happily salvaged!

Put your feet up. Take a little time to watch the stars, contemplate your place in our mighty Universe. Venus is at 26 Leo, Love & Light! It is making a trine, harmony connection with the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius! Venus radiates, sending Bright Blessings! As a receiver, she filters out the shades of gray, anoints with sugar and gold, lets only Love through the Portal. Doesn’t mean Love is always easy, but she does her best to help.x

About the GALACTIC CENTER! It is the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy. Per Paul O Hewit, it is ‘probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun.’ And, he says ‘Some clients with aspects [planetary connections] to the GC speak of not feeling 100 percent human, or not feeling they have had human ancestry. Their inner dynamic is centered around feeling as if they have come to this planet from some other place.’ Investigative mythologist, William Henry talks about ‘…a race of Stargate time-traveling ascended human beings dwelling at the center of our galaxy, and how each of us can utilize the Stargate through self-improvement. He suggests we are the necessary technology and describes a Stargate technology “kit” that includes a star-crown, mysterious anointing oil and a light-robe called the ‘beaming garment.’ To some of us that sounds like fun! The ultimate trip, time travel and more!

The Galactic Center is considered a point of exchange and huge infusion! The Full Moon August 18 will be at 25 Aquarius 52, almost 26 degrees. The Sun will then be where Venus is now, carrying the Light to that position again! Venus is Love, and Leo, the Sun’s sign, is the sign of the Heart of Light! Take it in, carry it forward.

Walk in Love and Beauty.

Full Grain Moon! Sun-Moon/Uranus Grand Fire Trine/Kite Galactic Center!  Jupiter/Chiron/Uranus!

Thursday August 18, 2:26 AM Pacific at 25 Aquarius 52

Selena Mistress of the night sky, Goddess of the Moon lacquer miniature by superb Russian artist Svetlana Belovodova!
Selena – Mistress of the night sky, the Goddess of the Moon. Sweet miniature lacquer by superb Russian artist Svetlana Belovodova.

Special note: This one is a little confusing. If you are using the Maynard calendars it is listed as a penumbral Lunar Eclipse. But definitions have changed, and per NASA it no longer qualifies. It only grazes the earth’s penumbral shadow and is not visually perceptible.

Celebrating Jupiter Opposite Chiron, Inconjunct Uranus!These Jupiter aspects we just had Aug 12 & 13 are so important because we will be having these planets in reverse aspects starting Dec 2016. Jupiter will be opposite Uranus, freedom matters, and inconjunct Chiron, healing and teaching. Immense changes in store! 2015/16 they were from 18 to 24 degrees but of Virgo, Pisces and Aries. Starting December and during 2017, the aspects will be at 20, 22 and 27 degrees of Libra, Aries and Pisces. Very different tone, some overlapping degrees, some later. See more

Moon and Sun are at 25, just past the Jupiter set that was at 24 degrees, and where Jupiter is now at 25. Mercury is at 23, coming in to reactivate our thinking about recent experiences, reassess, not forget, uplevel another notch. That’s SIX planets in three degrees! Full Moons, Moon opposite Sun, widen our Spirit to maximum capacity! Sun in his own sign LEO is as brilliant as it gets, Light everywhere! Moon in Aquarius is the invitation to expand into extraordinary realms! We can work with others that have great differences and approaches for the same causes! Moon and Sun are in a harmony pattern, called a Bow by some, with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Uranus is currently in Aries, the sign of rights fighters, champions, leaders, initiators — new beginnings! May the leaders of leaders join and the battle be well fought and won!

The Full Moon opposition is just leaving, one degree off, from the Jupiter opposition with Chiron. The Full Moon signs precede the Jupiter/Chiron signs. They are considered to give inspiration for the following signs, Virgo/Pisces, to provide a foundation for the work to come. Leo raises the Spirit of the Heart, Jupiter in Virgo seeks the ways to deliver that on a daily basis, to be productive with giving and serving. Moon in Aquarius nurtures bands of friends together in community that those who need it, Chiron in Pisces, will be healed and freed to be blessed by dreams coming true!

Sun/Uranus Grand Fire Trine/Kite pattern with the Galactic Center!
Moon is Midpoint Sextile Uranus and the Galactic Center!

Venus was there first! At the New Moon she trined the Galactic Center! See above Now the Full Moon has moved into position! The Sun is where Venus was, trining the Galactic Center and the Moon is at the Midpoint between The GC and Uranus! She was wearing her tiara, he is wearing his golden crown! Now all those 24/25 degree planets are making a Grand Fire Trine/Kite pattern! That is considered to be lucky and remarkable! Fire can be jubilant; Grand Trines have been know to be lazy, and Leo can be the lazy Lion on the savannah…. When not lazy, Leo can be athletic. How about some summer camping and hiking with friends, somewhere inspiring?! Take your video camera! Try skydiving or hang gliding! Do some creative graphics, write the script yourself! Take on a summer play that shows a better way!

Parallel inconjuncts! [The two purple lines] Parallel and equidistant patterns have their own peculiar potency. Mercury/Jupiter inconjunct Moon and Sun inconjunct Chiron. They truly are parallel because there are factors at each point at 24 and 25 degrees! In this case the parallel is the same aspect, they have the same dynamic. A chance encounter in a glance. An adjustment, course correction likely. Moon is leaving; Mercury makes his connection with Jupiter exactly Aug 22 2:05 AM Pacific. There are lots of details to be considered, decision immanent. In Sun’s inconjunct, he too is leaving. There was an oblique exchange, Sun a little mystified perhaps. Chiron warmed by the visit, but unsure what Sun wanted. Maybe just an observer on the sea…. Now it’s quieter again, but there are things to mull over due to the revelations when Sun put light in the dark.

The two parallel inconjuncts are linked by semi-sextiles. Though a minor aspect I have seen semisextiles be strong! A common one is Sun semisextile Venus bestowing wealth in corporations. Here, Sun is semisextile lucky Jupiter! Both are good natured, athletic, teachers! Jupiter in Virgo takes a health spa vacation, hikes cross country, or takes a leadership seminar or enjoys a writers’ conference! Plays and publishing! Join the Guild! Moon is semisextile Chiron. Moon in Aquarius and Chiron in Pisces both can enjoy alone time whether flying or fishing! If a cause is involved they may find themselves with masses of people, maybe at a concert to raise money. Sometimes it takes a village, an awakening, to do a healing of long held sorrows. Deeper change may require a personal immersion in suffering to open a heart to compassion.

Arrowhead aka Focused Yod! Mercury/Jupiter are the point of the 5 planet configuration. Moon and Uranus are the frame for the standard Yod form, but in addition, Chiron is midpoint between them! Energy is usually thought of its being brought into play by the planet that moves into position, called approaching. In this case that would be Mercury. Though Moon moves faster, it has already contacted and woken all the players, including Mercury, with the feeling of change. Mercury wants to name the change, and in earthy Virgo, to ground it in our thinking, to find practical ways to inaugurate it.

Generally energy goes every direction. All planets are alive always. As another planet has awakened them, they have also given their energy to the passerby. Yod planets ‘behind’ the point planet(s), track the background. Those prongs, the scanner planets, have gathered intelligence, perhaps for aeons, and when triggered by close encounters like this, send it to the planet(s) at the Yod point, which in turn synthesizes it with its own and sends it out potently, three for one style! Mercury and Jupiter at the point, are rulers of opposite signs Gemini and Sagittarius, information, what it means and its purpose. Being together they are working in unity, coordinating the best factors of both. They like a bit of fun on the job, and may juggle things about for a good spitball fight!

That also works in reverse! Mercury and Jupiter are also always scanning, seeking. They snoop out the details in Virgo, organize it to potency better than a vitamin pill or a clean white shirt, and disperse that to the traveling companions trailing behind! Everyone is on the same page! Any one of the points in the triangle may take precedence when needed or if potently connected with your chart!

Aug 19 is Mercury’s first pass of the Jupiter Opposition/Inconjunct point, 24 Virgo, before Mercury retrogrades Aug 30. The Mercury Retrograde Cycle in Virgo started Aug 10. Mercury will cross 24 Virgo again Sep 9, the day Jupiter enters Libra, and October 3. See more These three crossings will keep the Jupiter set’s ideas in mind. The things we planned to do will be reviewed, updated. These are the preparations for the reverse aspects that start in Dec and go through 2017.

Venus, in Virgo now, was just trine Pluto. That can be a wealth aspect or the fears of not having enough. Virgo wants a plan based in actual skills. Pluto in Capricorn may mean hard work to get the training needed. Money to go to school may be in question, but with steady effort, likely doable. Get some help from advisors, seniors, pros in the field you want to get into. You will do better if you do things you love. Virgo and Pluto are up for better health and with right guidance, healing is a good bet!

Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces is no easy combo! It may be slow and cold then hot and dry, over the desert into the sea! Mars hates going slow, being blocked, and Saturn can be like a brick wall, even in Sagittarius! Sag does have its opinions. Sag likes getting to the point and moving forward, but the Neptune fog is too thick to see through to take aim. Who knows where that trail is, dagnabit! Don’t be surprised if you get lost. If you are a hiker or at sea, be sure all your emergency devices are working and check in daily. Be a little careful about falls, weather conditions. Stay hydrated. Be patient with others and their difficulties. Be helpful as you can but take good care of yourself first.

The other notes. Saturn teaches us to conserve and in Sagittarius to focus. Scattered energy delays and confuses. Mars can help when Saturn loses confidence or old age is troubling. Mars says pick up your feet, let’s get a fresh start! Look, I’ll show you! Sagittarius can help us laugh even when we are down, and we all do have our foibles. Neptune helps us soften when Saturn can be rigid from habit. Saturn is the doubter but Neptune in Pisces is the dreamer and dissolves all the old boxes. There are no limits. Saturn does remind us the rent needs to be paid, so no running away or slipping into denial no matter how much fun it is! LOL So let them work for you too. Some old stuff needs to be busted, let to fall, less weight to carry. That new building is better!

It may be challenging, but we are so blessed to live in these healing times. Stay steady in the Light.

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!

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….

Aquarius  Full Wolf Moon – Mars T Square
NEW Moon – Monkeys, Midpoints, 19s and Jupiter!

Full Wolf Moon – Mars T Square!
Saturday January 23, 5:46 PM Pacific at 3 Leo 29

Full Wolf Moon Woman Book Sphere White
May the Magic & Inspiration of the Wolf Moon make its presence known.

First Full Moon of 2016! Mercury is retrograde for only 2 more days, going direct on the 25th at 1:50 PM Pacific! It is ‘stationed,’ still at its turning point conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Believe me, no stone is unturned! Mercury is our mental computer, curious to the max, nevermind Capricorn’s polite regard or politics. Pluto will have fewer secrets as things are dredged from the depths, willingly or not! Mercury has been stirring the brew, swirling things to the surface, releasing old constraints! Gotta have all the factors present to make the best decisions.

Part of the purpose of Full Moons is to widen the playing field to its maximum wingspread, embrace a greater potential! Moon and Sun are as far apart as they can get. Aquarius is wild as it gets, truly bored by the status quo. Leo loves a good old fashioned drama! These two are coming up to T Square Mars the Instigator, fomenter of NEW beginnings in Pluto’s fixed sign Scorpio! Scorpio doesn’t give up or change easily, but Mars is warrior kin, so fearless that Scorpio admires and, not admitting it, tries to keep up! Keep your socks on and your running shoes ready!

Moon will square Mars 8:11 AM the next morning, so there are some immediate considerations! Moon is in the sign of Light, Leo. Secrets will be revealed! Moon is emotional, can get its feelings hurt in Leo. Mars is famous for being a bit techy, and in Scorpio scary. That could be uncomfortable for everyone,so don’t get too close; Mars in Scorpio has its own kind of bite! Time out, cool down, stop pouting. Don’t let things get so far you can’t get back. Generally everyone has good intention. Might choose to take on hot topics some other time?

In another version, Moon in Leo is like a New Moon in itself! Moon is in Sun’s sign, receiving another powerful infusion and she nurturing the Light! She is the Queen, and has her due. Mars is her formidable soldier, in molten Scorpio of the Underworld. She rules by brilliance alone, he by deep instinctual passion. If he loves you he loves you. If he doesn’t…. She of the heart, and he the Healer, burn away the fears, cleanse the Spirit, brighten the Soul, that we may give wholley!

Since both Sun and Mars are moving forward, Sun is continuously square, in challenge with Mars, for 2+ weeks, exact Feb 7 at 4:08 AM Pacific. They are fire planets, in power signs. Sun in Aquarius looks so free and easy it seems anything goes. But Aquarians have seen so much crazy, they know it when they see it. If Mars in Scorpio goes into obsession mode, that will go against the Aquarian grain. They are allergic to possession or thoughtless actions that don’t flex with the times and possibilities. Mars may try to secretly manipulate, but to no avail. Aquarius is a detached air sign and they see it like it is. Aquarius may try to out crazy and intimidate Mars with its genius, but Mars in Scorpio has seen the dark side and little fears him. He has fighter strength, tenacity in Scorpio. No dice. It Mars doesn’t get its way in reasonable time, and many of his ways are absolutely accurate, there are greener pastures.

However, if they are born to the same cause, together, nothing can stop them! They put mind, internet and passionate personal devotion together like a vise grip! Sun in Aquarius is beyond extraordinary, sees the potential of mergers in all places, bonds a community of key Souls. Mars likes to work alone, but in Scorpio sees the value of merging funds and talents. It will tackle the toughest, most unlikely, and bring them to sponsor crucial pivotal unions. Mars in Scorpio is seductive, a tremendous healer, sparing no one its touch, bringing the deepest stories of raw courage to the table. If there is debris in the Path, Mars recycles or removes it. Change will happen.

Sun in Aquarius is a combination of opposites like Full Moons are always opposite! Sun is Leo’s planet, and Aquarius is Leo’s opposite sign! We need to befriend ourselves, the Self in others. We are our selves, but are among our fellows. There are many facets within us, a huge mix of thoughts, a unique combination that makes us able to contribute to the tapestry of Humankind! Not giving our part, a piece is missing, sometimes critical, sometimes holding things up. Let yourself just be and celebrate that like-no-one-else quality that is only yours! Notice it in others and say so. Find good ways to say it so they know you are appreciative!

This marvelous rich resonance of character, strange and incredible, repulsive at times yet impossible not to follow, is part of the leaders of all time! From neurotic nerdy loners, researchers for a cure, to David Bowie, war heroes, adventurers, spiritual champions and saviors, the right bodacious Miley Cyrus! All make us think! The R/evolution is upon us fully loaded! It is a contagious continuous epidemic of consciousness! The more changes you can make, the further you get!

Saturn will almost exactly semi sextile Mercury and Pluto, is close to trine Uranus and square Chiron, but instead, while they continue forward, Saturn retrogrades back to square Neptune in June. Though Mercury is retrograde, he turns forward at 14 degrees. Faster moving he leaves Saturn behind. Saturn, the planet of Capricorn, the sign Mercury has been in, has helped keep Mercury with compulsive Pluto stable. Saturn retrogrades and doesn’t catch up with Pluto either, doesn’t make exact connection. Hints and hopes. Saturn hints at forming a collective of friends and associates with Uranus. It hints at losses of business or loved ones, a need for healing, in the square with Chiron. When it squares Neptune we are tested about our Compassion and Faith.

What we do have is Jupiter close to its second exact opposition with Chiron Feb 23, the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! Chiron is in Pisces, ahead of Neptune now by 10 degrees. Chiron the chief Centaur got in trouble, given a wound that wouldn’t heal. He studied, became a master healer and teacher. In Pisces the wisdom applies to matters of the fluids in our bodies, the natural tidal flow of our consciousness. Pisces the Sensitive is an empath, compassionate psychic. Pisces is art and music – mega concerts, miraculous performances and talent! It is the worldwide machinery of the ocean – tourism, shipping, seaside harbors, sports, fishing and seaweed harvests.

Jupiter in Virgo watches from the opposite vantage point with way above average organizational skills. With ethics and honesty it takes care of our health so we can do the good business of life, enjoy or time with our fellows to the fullest. Jupiter in this sign minimizes costs with efficient efforts and maximizes the applications of our highly crafted skills! Small details that others don’t see, pivotal to our success, are taken care of with a fine tooth comb! Even our pets are well tended! Prepare to be offered a full package deal. Jupiter in Virgo knows how true it is that all things are connected. Being apart, opposite Chiron, is an excellent position with the least attachment. Their perspective is priceless. See more!

With a big heart of Love and a clear light Mind, let the embers be Bright!

New Moon – Monkeys, Midpoints, 19s and Jupiter
Monday Feb 8 at 6:39 AM Pacific – 19 Aquarius 16

The Milky Way Galaxy extending over an unnamed Gros Ventre peak, Gros Ventre Wilderness, Wyoming. New Moon Aquarius Milky Way FreeRoamingSplendid Milky Way by extraordinary Jackson Hole photographer Mike

This New Moon is Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey! Red symbolizes luck and is believed to ward away evil! Fire is born leaders, decisive, confident! Adventurous and innovative, their brilliance and warmth attracts grand companions. Monkeys are lively, flexible, quick-witted and versatile, often ahead of the game planning their next moves. And that’s not all! See more!

A New Moon night is Moonless, but still full of a sweeping array of wondrous Light. Aquarius is the sign of the Heavens, Ouranos, aka Uranus, the Planet of Aquarius, the God of the Sky.

7 New Moon factors in the chart are in close teen degrees, 14 to 19, making for an intricate play of patterns. Moon is getting her batteries charged by Sun, so all are being revitalized!

I’ve never seen a double set of midpoints with so many planets lined up as this New Moon has!

SemiSextile Midpoint Pattern

Venus is in the preceding sign Capricorn, and Chiron is in the following sign, Pisces, ALL four at 19 degrees! That means the New Moon is at the midpoint, equidistant between Venus and Chiron, an instant exchange of the transfusion of Sun to Moon, Moon to Sun energies! Moon is always ‘catching up’ with the Sun. Sun in glorious Light is always sharing the Radiance! This time, the magnification is further spread in Capricorn by Venus, a love of all time, being placed midpoint between Pluto and Mercury! Venus has politely and carefully kissed Pluto, leading Pluto’s profound power of the deepest life force, our Kundalini, further with a vision of beauty and blessings to come. A deep insight into Fatherhood could be life changing.

Mercury in Cap, the Word of Light, the Breath of Life, gets the scent of what Venus is bringing with her from Pluto, plus Venus’ very own perfume! The story of what has been so dearly worked for is told with reverence. It is both poetic and iconic. Time has made such a differenced! Some things are fresh and sprung from their seeds, like our children. Others, elders, grandparents, are gentled with age, smoothed with mercy, reliable, stand in honor. Mercury was retrograde until Jan 25, now moving forward, getting the word of impressive structures and systems out there. It is mature and respected. It’s energy is sensibly focused. We are doing this!

Moon/Sun to Venus is feminine and fathering. Moon is archetypical nurturing to ancient wisdom Keeper Capricorn, giving Venus the invitation to the gathering. Sun in Aquarius lights the way through strange new territory, way beyond the old places! Capricorn, the sign of Father Time, Saturn, guards the Path, is the Father of times to come. No mere candle flame, Father Sun makes us see the lighted Heart within us, gives the courage to give our unique contribution that we alone can give.

In the next sign, Pisces, the divine Beings are also sharing the Light with Chiron, healing even the tiniest morsels within our Souls, ones we didn’t know were camouflaged by waves and swells within us. It’s one thing to have a army of friends, another to be tuned in to the Celestial trails. Also, with Venus exactly sextile Chiron, healings may occur to entire groups in an instant! The symbol for Aquarius is waves of energy, whether Light, sound, water, electricity, sometimes lightning bolts! It bestows super through and through, up and down, always forward, often ahead of its time, energy. If you miss the first wave, no worry, there are more to come, repetition until we get it! It loosens old patterns, replaces lost bits, reassembles and metamorphs, changes until you forget what was, and you are new without a thought of the past! Evolution happens, new dreams are living in us.

This is a seriously potent pattern with Jupiter opposite Chiron, the outer planet anchor aspect! Chiron in the same degree as the New Moon and Venus ties it 100%! Jupiter is retrograding back to make its second trine with Pluto Mar 16! See more! This aspect is the most powerful outer planet aspect of 2016! It is known for mega wealth and success when the project matches their current signs, in this case Virgo and Capricorn! Venus trines Jupiter the next day at 11:54 PM. There is time to put some cards on the table and show ’em what you got! A big YES is possible! Mercury has already gotten his ideas and made the appointment back on the 5th & 6th. Just keep talking it up!

Moon, and Sun are in the inconjunct with Jupiter, keeping tabs on adjustments needed to bring more people, patrons and workers to the project, cause. Sun gives it a couple more days then goes on.

Jupiter was coming close in the opposition during the Full Wolf Moon (See) and now is less than 3 degrees of its exact opposition with Chiron! It broadens and enriches our wingspan! We have a greater range of vision, we are accessing more people! It will become exact Feb 23, the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! See more

This midpoint pattern alone involves 6 chart factors! The next one adds two more, bringing it to 8 factors!

Sextile Midpoint Pattern

The second midpoint pattern is with Saturn and Uranus, the old and the avant garde! Sun and Moon have just made made sextiles with Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn is the wise old anchor that keeps us from being swept away, tempted by false time-wasting journeys in Sagittarius. Saturn is also the Guardian of the ways of Truth, the righteous Path and journeys that must be taken. It keeps us on course. Productive! In sextiles with the ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus in Aries, there is a purity of expression of Aquarian goals, a natural enthusiastic harmony, immediate release and change! Teaching the way, Saturn’s commitment and the fiery Spirit of Uranus in Aries are inspiration like never before! The Gates open, the Threshold is cleared! Freedom!

Sun and Moon also sextiled Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Uranians, though sometimes loners, are also specialists at connecting disparate elements in our communities! Extraordinary acceptance of difference allows Union in action. We put our heads together and new ways to solve old long troubling discouragements are lifted, resolved beyond our wildest hopes! It’s time to open up, take that stand, call for what works. True, some factions will be deeply opposed, even brutal, barbaric, but the tides of time, basic evolution, will bring greater change. Eventually those times will be past, dim dust, people wondering how that ever could have been. Yes, there will be some errors as we ALL learn. We are on new ground. Together. Collaborate.

Other Aspects

The strongest challenge aspect is what has been recently uncovered by Moon and Sun squaring Mars in Scorpio. This did not go lightly. The dark side has been revealed. Do not let that stop you; let it make you know why we continue to stand true. Get your words in order, your body fit as can be. Let go of the old hurts that you keep talking about, acting out on. If you have a temper, if you have harmed someone, get to work. These things can be dealt with, and you don’t have to do it alone. Friends and experts can help. Be wise. Refocus where good work can be done. Be truly and really free. It starts with yourself.

The other challenge aspect is right in the time of the New Moon. Sun and Moon will inconjunct (that’s 150 degrees) Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo. Being askew of each other, in each others’ peripheral vision, will keep a tab on things, but can also be annoying, sorta like an itch you can’t quite reach. They can pull you off into a ream of details, ideas you would have rather ignored, but may ultimately pay off as you take the treasure back to the main pack for perusal. Hmpf. Used to be you could just coast along, but now…sigh, there are some more requirements. And that’s ok.

Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces stands alone. He has been in the square with Saturn, but right now is a little further away. Saturn is loosening his hold. The idea is to keep the Dream conscious, keep building, but sometimes you need to be let to move with no constraints, more at random, to explore the furthest amazing possibilities.

Be a receiver ~ transmitter.  Be a living conduit; move energy and information.
