Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon!  Regulus & a lot of Mercury! 

New Moon!  Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

The Virgo Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well!

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique! It was the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that was at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle started – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde started August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects you started from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse was during the Retrograde part of the cycle! 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!

The Rx cycle includes two signs: Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Aug 21 SECOND Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE! …at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!

Augx22   Happy Virgo!

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon! – Regulus & a lot of Mercury!

Wednesday Sep 6, at 00.03 AM Pacific, 13 Virgo/Pisces 53!  

Virgo 2017 Full Moon Clouds Pink

Sep 5 Mercury goes Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse degree! When a planet turns direction, it is called being in Station – being still in the sky, with no apparent visual motion. With Mercury it is an 8 day period, 4 before, 4 after the turn. There is an in dwelling, a deepening focus, a thorough examination of the matters at hand, strengthening, an anchoring of a thought or principle. Choose your thoughts carefully, select the best of your hopes and plans. Though the Full Moon doesn’t connect with Mercury by degree, Sun and Moon are held in this stance, place of mind. If you stand still until you really see. The differences of Moon in Pisces, Sun in Virto, become more apparent, each having its own value, a necessary contributor to the greater cause. At the time of the Eclipse, Moon and Sun were in Leo. Now they are spanning Virgo to Pisces. Time to use the Leo heart energy to take the next step, make your dreams come true.

This Full Moon is Moon in Pisces, the Master Dreamer and Visionary, opposite Sun in Virgo the DNA LightWeaver, Healing Goddess! Pisces Moon is at the mast! She holds the Voyage, sometimes adrift, sometimes fearlessly surging through a gale and high seas! Virgo charts the stars, minds the crew, weaves their Souls intricately in fine patterns to get the job done most magnificently! Each compliments the other. When Moon is spread too thin, Sun in Virgo gathers in the bits so they pull together. When Virgo over thinks, worries, Pisces reminds that there are greater powers that guide us and the cause is the cause, always!

Moon has just been with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet, so she knows this to be doubly true, formidable, and psychically uncannily accurate! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time.

Moon is inconjunct Venus in Leo! There will be a call to the arts – music, film, video, theatre. There will be the grace of water sports – wind sailing, paddle boards, surfing and sailing, kayaking. Seeing the world on an ocean cruise will fulfill a need to connect beyond the ordinary. There may be a mediation group or Tai Chi, Yoga class that brings you to silence, peace, serenity, tranquility. As super new things change in your life, old addictions that held you captive will be forgotten and replaced with a vibrant competence. There are new reasons for living, possibly a sweetheart becomes apparent, steps up!

Sun in Virgo is radiant. She plants seeds, walks in the woods. She clears and cleans letting bright light shine. She creates space that allows mind clearing air flow! Flowers bloom leading us to heal more quickly. Deep breath. Sun trines, a strong favorable connection, with Pluto, the Master of the Underworld, yet the Phoenix that rises, lives again! Revelation fired by the Kundalini, the energy at the base of our spines, uplifts us to the Eagle’s keen perception. Virgo sees the illness, keeps us comfortable that Pluto may heal the cause. As humans we come with some flaws, a work in progress. Some matters that need healing are from past lives, others are when we have harmed ourselves, or been harmed by others. It’s a challenging job to weed out and sort the mess, but Pluto is undaunted by complex circumstances. Pluto, in Capricorn, drives the effort. He knows how valuable an experienced person can be, how strong they are to have faced it and made it. Virgo is there all the time with that candle, bringing Light to the Dark. She makes sure the spiritual operating theatre is good for the work and is skillful at rewiring old mindsets.

Moon and Neptune are right there too, sextiling Pluto. They are intuitive to each other, speak and see as one. They see the child, how parental and cultural background has significance. They see how broken or abandoned dreams have had consequence and speak to subtleties about how to process their release. They know how to instill a greater vision now that times have changed and the person is more mature and able.

28 LEO Mercury stands close to the Inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces and trine with Uranus in Aries, but it is just whispers and hints, faint reminders. Mercury inconjuncted Chiron and trined Uranus back on about July 22nd, and on July 24th. So much has happened since then. The context has changed… What is significant is 28 Leo was the degree of the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! Whatever was special to you about that Eclipse, it is time to think on and talk about! Remember, Mercury in Leo is in station, so we want to anchor your best ideas, the ones of heart and Light, ones with special potential. I hope you made some notes at Eclipse time, because it isn’t over yet if that Eclipse activated your chart! (See your astrologer!)

While stationed in Leo, Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet considered to be the highest echelon of intelligence! Mercury is quick on his winged feet spreading the news, but Uranus the genius rules the Universe, evolution, awakening, flight, and the Internet, LOL! But really, what can one do without the other?! Mercury needs information to share; Uranus needs someone to spread the Word! Mercury teaches us how to learn, speak well in a good way. Uranus opens us to realms of Being we never knew existed! Both are essential. Uranus is currently in Aries the sign of Initiation, champions, leaders! Leo is the HeartLight, creation, young people finding themselves. Love and leading go well together! Uranus will surely change our minds for the better in that 8 day station! We will keep the thoughts, add a few of our own, and let them be known far and wide. Bright.

Mercury in Leo, hopefully with grand projects on his mind, is just about to change signs into Virgo Sep 9, catch up with Mars Sep 16, and make like a sphinx with him! Half Lion, half Woman, the Sphinx embodies the Leo/Virgo signs – Leo the Lion, Virgo the Virgin. There is much to talk about and you can be assured that champion, hero Mars will quickly do his very best to help Mercury with the work! Mercury will be gaining momentum after the turn, moves right along, passing Mars, on to the next project.

Mars newly at 0 Virgo is conjunct fixed star Regulus, so you can expect his contribution to be elegant and maximum! Regulus used to be in Leo. It was one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the watcher of the South, the King! Now in Virgo, I dub him/her the Healing Goddess! Maybe Chiron is her planet. Mars wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time! He is quite capable of giving the boot to the next level! Quick to analyze, he gives you a shove it he thinks you can make it! He encourages, is right to the point. He inspires you instantly! In Virgo he gets you exercising perfectly per your conditions! Oxygen gets to your brain and fuels your next choice! He gets you charged then passes you right by, on his way to the next spiritual soldier that needs a boost!

Jupiter and Saturn made their sextile but are still plenty close and active. Lots of plans made and a ton getting done! Jupiter is finishing last days in Libra. Social relationships are being made, groomed, extended into greater territories. We are committing to distant travels and tours, and superior education. Publishing our works is important, probably timely. Political ethics and justice are getting a workout from grassroots to corporate levels. See more!

Sep 23 and 27 are the next aspects coming, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! These will be the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. As Jupiter moves in closer, the aspects will be in the traditional ranges thought to have effect. After them, Saturn will be squaring Chiron Nov 2.

Besides being about Virgo and Pisces, this Full Moon is a lot about Mercury. They are tied together because Mercury rules Virgo and the retrograde ties to the Moons! As one teacher said, ‘Where your attention goes, your energy flows.’ Straight ahead!

New Moon! Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

Tuesday September 19, at 10:30 PM Pacific, 27 Virgo 27!

Virgo 2017 New Crescent Moon Cleaning Stars

Virgo angels are often at work making our lives brighter, even at New Moon time! 

As is said above, the Virgo Full and New Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde Cycle! Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well! The SAME DAY of our New Moon at 27 Virgo, the Mercury Retrograde Cycle finishes at 11 Virgo! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Mercury rules communications – speaking, listening. The four moons connected with Mercury’s Retrograde cycle have each brought a special perception. It is fitting the whole cycle matures, finishes in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign! Virgo organizes our thoughts, fits the puzzle pieces together, expedites the project to a polished and quality result!

4 Occultations! There is a unique lead in energy preparing this New Moon. Pacific time, Sep 17 Venus at 27 Leo, the star Regulus at 0 Virgo, Sep 18 Mars at 8 Virgo and Mercury at 10 Virgo are occulted! Occultations are mini eclipses! The Moon and those planets are perfectly lined up! That’s three inner planets in two days. Channels are open from and to those three planets! There is a purity. Messages are clear and potent! Venus of values and grace, star Regulus the heart of the constellation of Leo the Lion and at the crossroad of Leo/VIrgo – the Sphinx (half Lion, half Woman), Mars the leader and champion, Mercury of communications – transmit and listen! The 19th Venus enters Virgo just in time for the New Moon!

The occultations occur in less than 24-hours time. This will be the first time since March 5, 2008, that three planets have been occulted by the moon in less than one day. The next time won’t be until July 24, 2036.

With this New Moon having FIVE planets, a stellium, in Virgo, including Mercury in his own sign Virgo, we can safely say things will get done, and well! Virgo is a common sense Earth sign, a hard worker, last one to leave the office!

Moon with Sun is a potent combination. Sun carries the Light, Moon gives support and give the unconditional love we need! Virgo is worker, at all kinds of enterprises that take care of us on a daily basis. Moon thinks that is terrific. She superlatively minds our nutrition, often has natural remedies, information that saves the day.

Virgo is purity, cleanliness of mind, body and location! She nags us, but the aim is to establish and maintain clear thinking. She adjusts our diet to prevent ailments, cheaper than a doctor, LOL! She detoxes us, and builds better health than ever before! She clears clutter that blocks and burdens us, organizes our lives for clear and streamlined action. Go, Virgo!

Venus just arrived, is at 0 degrees. She loves the work and wants it to be beautiful, valuable and lovingly composed! Might be a quilt or the subtle tints of the paint on the wall in the showroom! Patterns stir our consciousness, labyrinths lead to the center of the world! We relax in the loveliest flower gardens, grow the most healthy herbs and foods. Very sweet caregiver.

Mars in Virgo gives good measure for time spent! He works best independently. Definitely an Earth mover! Outdoors might be his forte. In construction put him to work on woodworking, the cabinets installations and clean up! He will be the best delivery person you ever had! He may volunteer to take food to home bound people and elders.

Moon naturally takes on the home nurturing role; Sun leads us to extend that service to our community! Virgos are very clever Souls and much sought after. There have always been tenders and nannies, butlers, caregivers and nurses and accountants. We couldn’t live without them! Well we could, but things are more better with them! They have specific amazing skills! They are downright excellent at garden care and landscaping. Botanic gardens…. Veterinary.

Mars and Mercury are opposite Neptune. He’s been waiting for them. Mercury and Neptune are each in their own signs. They are strongly placed. Neptune the dreamer and savior, offers insights to spiritual dilemmas, meditation to sooth the monkey mind. Mercury has just crossed Mars, and is supercharged! Mercury wants to learn everything at once, chat and do logic, give the news on these new discoveries! And Mercury discovers there is more than words. Empathy is important too. Mars, though generally forthright and furious, in Virgo is a bit more careful in it’s approach. Quiet tiptoes might be the way when with the sleeping Giant Neptune that sees all, especially if he is sleeping?! Rude questions and probing may provoke a chilled silence that is an unpredictable entity all its own. Oops. Ok, breathe. Gentle respect more likely due. Perhaps the technique and skill of the process is more important than the content of the encounter?

Mars and Mercury are trine Pluto in Capricorn! They all are Earth sign harmonious. Practical. Reasoning. Limits and laws. Mercury is forging ahead of Mars, first on the premises. Capricorn, the sign of elders and professionals, needs respect, and Pluto has a lot of private business. It may take a getting-to-know-you period before there is sharing. If you are offering services, you need to be bonded. If you are looking for a story be careful what you say. Mars might push a little harder than Mercury, but too much push can be felt to be suspicious. Pluto is always watching the back door. If it is an instant go ahead connection, you’re on! Ask your questions, offer innovative ideas, propose your price. If it is a personal relationship, while away the hours together, share secrets, do a project that fills your hearts!

The New Moon and Chiron have just made a T square with the Galactic Center! Squares can be a nuisance, blocks, but they also bring breakthroughs and building! Chiron is soulfully diligent seeking cures of body and mind, but in Pisces more of Spirit. Sometimes we get a wee bit lost, could be fears, addictions, cloudy vision, depleted dreamtime or dreams too vivid. At the point of the T Square,the Galactic Center is in Sagittarius, the place of the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It is a fire sign that lights the way, points the direction to take! It is a cheerful sign of hope and optimistic there is a fine future ahead! This perspective helps us break free from old things that have haunted us.

The New Moon is also within minutes of inconjunct Uranus in Aries! The gateway is is oblique, off to the side. it isn’t mainstream, could even be brushed aside as too weird or off putting, but Moon is is concerned for her territory, so takes a look. Moon is leery of such an upstart and for good reason! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, evolutionist, ahead of its time. The Moon protects culture and the home, sudden changes can be scary, upset the Virgo family routine. Moon is also curious. In her cycles she sees many things and may be bored, and in Virgo she is always amenable to a better way. So she may choose to watch from a safe distance at first.

The Sun is the planet in natural opposition to Uranus. Sun rules Leo, opposite sign to Aquarius, Uranus’ sign. Sun in Virgo may feel somewhat similar to the Moon in this instance. Virgos are not usually robust champions. They are more delicately put together. Like feathers in the weather vane, they sense shifts in the valence, minute disruptions of natural order. But they all may have a quick consult. Uranus in Aries instantaneously inspires. As Moon and Sun go by, they will be excited by the possibilities!

27 Virgo squares the Fixed Stars Polaris and Betelgeuse. Both are at 28 Gemini, but in very different locations in the sky! Polaris is the Pole Star, at the North Pole of Earth, the stars appearing to rotate around it. Its declination is +89. It has long been a guiding star to sailors and caravans. The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star! Polaris has been given mixed interpretations of high honors, misery and spiritual power. I would think which or how much of each, would depend on how it is situated in a given chart and the aspects at a given time. In this case, both Sun and Moon in a challenge aspect it could indicate Gemini/Virgo mind/body challenges, honors lost or hard won, a block in communications since Gemini and Virgo are Mercury’s two signs! A clear direction may not be immediately apparent or without some effort.

The same square exists with Betelgeuse, but Betelgeuse, declination only +7, is entirely a different character! Rather than at the Pole, Orion is located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world! Polaris is at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear. Betelgeuse is in Orion’s right shoulder! Rather than the Guide, Betelgeuse is part of the hunter warrior! Great fortune and fame, especially military success, are potential, and it is also associated with calamities, danger, and violence! Warriors take their chances! Our New Moon in Virgo may contribute to strategies, might be a stealthy and clever hunter, but is rarely a warrior. Virgo may take care of the wounded, but would rather deal with Gemini’s commerce, offering business skills. Virgo may be grateful for Gemini’s news of new techniques and cures at the front, but will likely quietly incorporate it in it’s life on its own. Likely to be a meet, greet and move on. The Moon was on Betelgeuse when the 1st tower was struck on 9/11.

Moon’s North Node is retrograding to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Moon’s nodes are thought to link to past lives. The South is what we did, the North is how we want to balance that. In Leo, it is calling for Heart and Light, radiant being, a creative Spirit! Saturn is thought of as the Reaper, what we sow is what we get, or it is what we are responsible for. Sometimes we owe from past lives. In the process, we work toward Dharma, the work of the Soul. Often I find people who are living their Saturn, doing the work it symbolizes, are the happiest! Moons Nodes and Saturn symbolize a harmony of Moon, Mother, and Saturn, Father/Time. Leo to Sagittarius can be inspiring performance, teaching, sharing the best we have to give!

There are two outer planet combinations that the New Moon opens gateways to and prepares us for.

  • First is the Sep 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! They are the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. The new Moon is directly tied to all three! Jupiter is scouting for learning, healing. In Libra it wants to establish a friendly relationship, an open exchange. Jupiter may cheer Chiron in Pisces out of some of his wounds and worries. Chiron intuits Jupiter’s excesses and cheerfulness that covers any fears and failures. Ok to fail. Sometimes better that happened! This work is of great interest to Virgo who seeks natural balances, cures, and working relationships.
  • Opposite Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra is at some moments appalled by the indignity of seemingly aimless rushing about, yet is intrigued no end and finds himself in a new cosmic culture, dancing the dash! Haven’t had so much fun in ages, who cares what you look like?! Libra’s social meter may meet max trying to keep up with all those new acquaintances, but there is so much to learn and he doesn’t want to miss a thing! Extraordinary! They can make tremendous achievements together! Uranus has the genius and research; Libra knows the law and gets the patent!
  • Second is Saturn square Chiron, exact November 2. This is not considered an easy aspect by many. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows healing down, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, this time you may make a breakthrough and make a fresh start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it.

Those of you who tinker with the numbers probably have noticed the Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27! In astrology, the 2nd and 7th signs are Taurus and Libra, both Venus ruled. May Love and Beauty prevail! 2 + 7 is 9, as this New Moon completes the Mercury Retrograde cycle over a course of five lunar events!

As one lunar cycle ends, a new one begins. There is a maturity, ending, gratefulness, letting go, moving on. Natural. Take some quiet moments, have a circle gathering, rest, assess what’s up and in the wind. The foundation you have built will stand you in good stead for what’s to come. Sign by sign we follow the stars through the Year. Virgo is sign 6, halfway through, soon to tip the scale into Libra! Most honorable.

Blessed be ~

Happy Birthdays, Virgos!

Virgo Faith HIll, husband Tim McGraw Singers

Singer Faith Hill and her husband Tim McGraw arrive at the 48th ACM Awards in Las Vegas April 7, 2013.  (Reuters)

Perhaps you have heard of Faith Hill. She’s an unusual Virgo and there are reasons for that. Primarily she started as a country singer. Born Sept 21, 1967, we don’t have a birthtime for her, but she does have Pluto, Uranus and her Sun together in Virgo. Uranus is singers and Pluto is wealth. She has sold over 40 million albums and accumulated 11 number one singles on the Country charts. Uranus rules the world at large, and Pluto takes it to the extreme!

She has Jupiter and Venus together in Leo. She’s golden with the classic chocolate brown eyes, though at times the camera picks up a beautiful hazel color just like my Virgo Aunt Ruth had. She has golden hair and often dresses gold. Golden gowns and lots of shiny, just like the Sun, Leo’s ‘planet,’ a shining star!

Faith’s romantic Leo planets have brought her a most unusual success! She is super successful making adoring duets with her husband Tim McGraw, a looker in his own right! They make it a rule not be be apart more than 3 days at a time.

She has come a long way. Adopted. Quit college, was discovered after some time at Nashville. Her Moon in Taurus gives more good looks, a sensuous voice, and perseverance. She has lots of records, both numbers of records sold, and has set some records! The song ‘Wild One,’ on her first album, made her the first female country singer in 30 years to hold Billboard’s #1 position for four consecutive weeks! When she followed her album Faith with Breathe, it debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Country and all genre charts, ahead of albums by Mariah Carey and Savage Garden. “The Way You Love Me” hit the top ten as well (#6), and became one of the longest running singles in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 (57 weeks)! The album won all kinds of awards!

Hill has been honored by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Grammy Awards, the American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards and so many more in so many ways. In 2001 she was named one of the 30 most powerful women in America by Ladies Home Journal.

Classic Virgo book lover! Hill used her 1999 tour to support a national children’s book drive. Fans who donated books at one of her concerts were entered into a drawing to meet her personally after the show. The effort resulted in the donation of 35,000 children’s books, which were distributed to hospitals, schools, libraries, and daycare centers in 40 cities across the United States.

Hero and Heroine! True to the community planet Uranus conjunct Faith’s sun, in the days immediately following Hurricane Katrina, Hill and her husband, who was raised in Louisiana, joined groups taking supplies to Gulfport, Mississippi. The two also hosted several charity concerts to benefit those who were displaced by the storm. Later in the year the couple established the Neighbor’s Keeper Foundation, which provides funding for community charities to assist with basic humanitarian services in the event of a natural disaster or for desperate personal circumstances.

Their Soul2Soul II Tour 2006 became the highest grossing country music tour ever with a gross of $90 million. It was named “Major Tour of the Year” by the prestigious Pollstar Magazine, beating out such heavyweights as Madonna and the Rolling Stones. In a special gesture, the couple donated all of the profits from their performance in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina relief.

Currently they are in progress with their 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour! Here’s the schedule if you would like to see them!

Released in April, Faith & Tim Preach R E S P E C T Toward Women With New Song ‘Speak to a Girl’ They take turns trading verses. First Faith offers a female’s perspective, then Tim echos from the man’s side. As parents of three teenage daughters, you can see why it is so important to them. Blessed be.

Virgo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

8.29.17 Moon Saturn Antares Photo Op Rings of Saturn!

 

Moon near Saturn and Antares on August 29!

Use the Moon to find Saturn, the 6th planet outward from the sun. Saturn now shines in front of the constellation Ophiuchus, of the sometimes called the forgotten constellation of the zodiac. Find out more about Ophiuchus on our Tonight post for August 13.

Saturn is the most distant world that you can easily see with the unaided eye. Moreover, you can view Saturn’s majestic rings with nothing more than a modest backyard telescope. Even though the four outer planets (planets orbiting the sun outside the asteroid belt) – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – have a ring system of sorts, Saturn’s rings are the most spectacular by leaps and bounds.

This year, in 2017, the north side of Saturn’s rings are maximally tilted toward Earth. So right now is a great time to dust off that telescope and gaze at Saturn, the crown jewel of the solar system.

[Oh, and Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpio Constellation! If you know where Scorpio is, you can find Antares then Saturn!]

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2017- Aug 2018!

The super amazing Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse in Leo catapulted us into Sun in Virgo Aug 22! What an entry! The 5 part Lunar sequence linked with the Mercury Retrograde cycle is finishing with Virgo’s New and Full Moons!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, that 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 final set of six started July 4. September 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron and opposes Uranus, Oct 10 Jupiter enters Scorpio! Nov 2 Saturn squares Chiron, and the entire set finishes 11/11 with Saturn trine Uranus! That’s a go ahead!

Jupiter is in its final 49 days of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to find good footing and balance to make and weather relationships. Make alliances that will hold true through times to come, go to schools and places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, trade and exchange wisely.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn!

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Virgo 2017 – Sep 2018!

Virgo Health Strong Stride Couple Nordic Walking

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Virgo’s year to come. Expect several maturities, endings, new beginnings and exciting new intentions!

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 and Capricorn are both harmonious with Virgo, another earth sign. Pluto and Virgo are both perfectionists and hard workers. Pluto can take it to extremes. This is one rare instance when Virgo may put on the brakes! Virgo is a fine craftsman, uses the best materials. Capricorn goes for durability, strength and protection and is willing to forfeit some details to get the job in on time. Pluto and Virgo are both healers. Capricorn bides his time, steps in when the time is right. Expect some sifting away the chaff.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Pisces is opposite Virgo. Virgo heals the body and Mind while Pisces heals the Soul. Virgo seeks data that explains and procedures that makes sense. Pisces goes way beyond that into an inexplicable greater realm, seeing what may happen that makes no logic but comes to pass anyway. The Soul has its own course. Sometimes we understand; sometimes there is a greater picture that is more important, operates in a different order than reason. If Pisces gets lost in the spiritual ethers, Virgo pulls the sails back to a stable flow with the currents, for a possible course correction.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 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! Virgo loves a better way, but wants to keep her routine! Uranus is the unpredictable, unstable at times, ChangeMaker fast as lightning! Aries is fast too, easily distracted by the next new thing! Great as a consultant, but Virgo is the one usually left with incorporating the conversion. Virgo is considered a flexible, adaptable sign, but this will call for the max! Routines can not be counted on, the rules may be changed daily! Virgo calls on the inventors and leaders to slow down at times, and for them to be even more creative in finding ways for their ideas to be more easily assimilated. Virgo first wants to see how it works and know why. She safeguards the system.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. Virgo quite agrees. The Uranian wildcard is always extraordinary, so can do that too! Taurus and Virgo are both earthy. Taurus rules fur, farm animals; Virgo rules pets. Hopefully some animals may be more protected. Taurus wants comfort and Virgo wants their patients to be relieved of suffering that more of their energy will go to healing. Taurus grows plants that Virgo may harvest for seeds and use as less expensive medicinals. Uranus in Taurus may find some fascinating massage or yoga techniques never used before. Virgo can always use a little relaxation. A walk on the land would suit them both. Taurus is ruled by Venus, beauty and value. Virgo organizes patterns and has incredible craft skills making exquisite quilts, wood carvings, ceramic tiles, sophisticated clothing designs!

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. Virgo, as with Neptune, is opposite Chiron. There is more affinity since Chiron was a noted healer, and Virgo was the village medicine person and midwife. She carried her basket of herbs. She was WiseWoman, who counseled mind as well as healing body. She was High Priestess at times, knowing the magic that went with the medicine. Chiron suffered long, learned a lot, became teacher. Virgo works on a daily basis. Chiron in Pisces may be a more spirit master, giving insights that help the daily ministrations find a way to be received and absorbed. At times Virgo may need to stand aside, then return when the patient is ready again. Good health and clear thinking are important! Chiron and Virgo may do great business together, become partners, even marry!

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! Virgo has its tried and true ways, so some upstart may have to prove himself before Virgo accepts the new ideas! Rarely does Virgo let themselves be rushed, but if the cure works, will do anything in their power to distribute it. If it is not properly vetted, Virgo may demand the proper processes be applied. Aries marvels at the details Virgo does, may have to jump in to move things faster, save the day! Virgo could be temporarily overwhelmed, but can carry on as the dust settles.

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through September 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 squares Virgo, but is also an Earth planet, earth sign combination. Saturn has a greater range of vision in Sagittarius and he’s gotten used to it! He keeps Virgo lined up with the greater plan and aware of how much time it will take. Some details make all the difference. Others will be let go by agreement in context of the great good, the best for all. In Sag, Saturn wants work to be broader, culture inclusive or tightens the work to the most meager and cost cutting possible, perhaps choosing quantity versus quality, foreign workers at the lowest pay. Virgo is known for fine craftsmanship, stands for consumer rights, and dignity, safety and health care for workers, no animal or human abuse. They may part company if compromise isn’t possible. Find work where your contribution is respected and celebrated, serves your community!

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. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

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! Capricorn and Virgo are in it together for the long run. Virgo usually has a notable skill they deserve credit for! Capricorn sees that talent and puts them to work unless Virgo hires them to run things! Capricorn builds the laboratory that Virgo may do the trials and testing. Caps make Virgo more aware of time spent and effective timing. Virgo suggests health and nutrition techniques that Capricorn know will promote a more healthy older age. Hand in glove.

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. Right 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 20 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. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Virgo, one of Libra’s neighboring signs, is so different. Their quiet performance is honed through intense focus, trial and error, hands on experience. Jupiter can be their sales rep, work the showroom, publish the news releases! Virgo is so dedicated they sometimes forget to do business. Jupiter sees their value and wants to partner! To unassuming Virgo, it seems like Jupiter is making a big fuss about it all. Virgo sometimes doesn’t even realize how extraordinary what they have done is! Well traveled Jupiter sees it instantly! It stands far above the rest! Ask this artisan first when it is a good time to talk, and don’t keep them too long. Make your points, requests, go away and let them think it over…. Ha! Let yourself be discovered!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio straddle Libra the middleman! Jupiter is still moving things along, confident and optimistic! The traveler seeker is always looking for amazing things. Scorpio is often obsessed with perfection and Virgo can offer that quality! Scorpio, a psychological healer, is seeking a deeper value, and Virgo, a fellow healer, body/mind, always shares. Jupiter calls Virgo to bring it out further into teaching, whether private tutoring, a small group or to as many as will listen or by writing the book! Jupiter is publisher, Scorpio is journalist, Virgo is author, especially of DIY and training manuals. Time to gather the information, Jupiter may flood you with it! Organize it, synthesize the various facets into a working sequence, arrange publishing! Jupiter in Scorpio is a master at getting funding and Virgo is super at accounting. This work will help many and have a charismatic appeal. Worthy investment.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it 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.

2017
Oct 10  Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio

Virgo EarthKeepers!

Virgo Earthkeeper Master Gardener

Image at Jackson County Master Gardener™ Association, Southern Oregon Research & Extension Center, Central Point OR

Virgos have a knack for making our lives a more beautiful place!

Tending gardens, houseplants and humans comes naturally for them. Mowing your lawn or a Horticulture or Landscaping degree are things they are good at. They have an eye for natural spacing and placing. Being with Nature reduces stress and improves sleep, balances a busy life, increases happiness! It works even if it involves just nurturing a few pots on a balcony! Good pesticide free organic food keeps us healthy, restores us. You are what you eat and you think more clearly. Flowers are like sunshine to our every thought.

Mind and body go together! Nutrition and nursing takes care of every detail. Through their clear attention our thinking follows a divine order, we save time, have time to do more elegant things as well! Intricate professions like bookkeeping/accounting, systems analysis, efficiency consulting show us more powerful percentages and abundant payoffs. Weeding our lives of unnecessary clutter  and cleaning up literally makes our lives brighter!

Growing humans is sometimes hard work on both sides. Virgo usually knows quite a bit. Delivering the knowledge isn’t always easy for either the Virgo or the other person, possibly another Virgo! Virgo can have a bite with her bark, even when there is good intention behind it. The trick is to educate at appropriate times, ask if it is a good time to talk, talk when no one is tired, with a smile of appreciation on your face and mean it. It’s not what you say, but how you say it. A good rule to follow is 5 appreciations to one criticism. Know that too much criticism unkindly delivered has consequences. You may lose a connection, even damage the other person, especially if a Virgo child or mate. If you are clever at criticism, you can be clever with praise! The process is not to prove how smart you are or one up to make yourself bigger or better than, but to share and make an ally, pull together in the traces. Well oiled machine. Hats off to you for your efforts.

Working independently is often best. Virgos have their ways, often a routine. Interruptions throw them off course. Delegating is not so easy. They like it precise and excellent quality. They are quite willing to do that for you. Too much fine tuning and sometimes they lose their job. However, if poor quality materials or building jeopardize lives, they may need to be in a safe place to blow the whistle. Believe me, they will have the data and evidence to back up what they claim. Heroes and heroines. Some can be good instructors, but they need good students that can keep up. Virgos deliver a lot of well thought out information in a very short time! On-the-job training, hands on examples are the best for them.

Though Virgos are often avid readers, have a library of their own, book learning is just not their best job training medium unless it is a do-it-yourself manual! Hands on, on-the-job training works better. They can see it and feel it, prove it to themselves. Yet Virgos are #1 as authors! They can write and write and write! Mystery novels! Virgos are consummate puzzle solvers! Famed Agatha Christie was Virgo rising, Saturn and Sun in Virgo, Jupiter in the 6th house! Chart They write super informative detail by detail how-to blogs, stunning documentaries, well organized training manuals!

Virgos do a lot of daily business. They are not usually heavy lifters, but keep things livable and in running order. Repairs, housekeeping, gardening, laundries, trash removal, elder caregivers. If they have a bit of Sagittarius in their chart, expect a hotel/bed and breakfast or university work or works at the racetrack! Ones with a bit of Cancer in their charts may tend the genealogy archives at the library or museum. Throw in some Taurus and you may get a veterinarian that adores fur persons and livestock. With Aquarius you may get a double checking researcher who is honored for the excellence of their trustworthy work.

Environmental concern is strong with them. They love our Earth, often are walkers. Toxic cleanup, restoration and protection of habitats, protecting wildlife whether running a campaign, a rescue organization, a  preserve or being a ranger are favored. They can do meaningful research seeking long term results, trends for climate change. Don’t be surprised if your Virgo becomes a Master Gardener!

Simply put, Virgos do a monumental job as EarthKeepers, in so many ways, every single day.

Jupiter Sextile Saturn Joel Harlow MakeUp Star Trek

Award winning Star Trek makeup artist Joel Harlow & team member hard at work getting paid to play!

Jupiter may come knocking at your door, take you on a useful journey, opening more doors, of all kinds, right and left! Saturn is the King of Thresholds, and is an adept keymaker! And when needed, a great locksmith, guardian of the goods!

Jupiter may increase Saturn’s workload, much to Saturn’s happiness! Successful building, artistic renovation can change the demeanor of an entire neighborhood, up property values. Saturn may be inspired by Jupiter’s far reaching ideas and open a new branch. Business may increase through new partnerships. There may be some sad moments as Saturn realizes what they missed, what has held them back. Knowing they don’t need to do that anymore is a great relief. Forgiveness may be given for mistaken thinking as the truth comes out. Time for healing. Health may get better with age, and respect and recognition given for long term well done work. Jupiter sees the benefits of Saturn’s bedrock solidarity.

Saturn offers Jupiter the consideration of right timing, being able to wait to right action. Jupiter is the valiant hero, but Saturn shows it is sometimes so better to let another have the spotlight and cheer them on! Just because you can, or even because you can do it better, isn’t always the reason to do it! Jupiter is full of vim and vigor, but again, restraint and focus pay off as you do what you do best and do your own appropriate responsibilities. Spreading too thin sometimes depletes our energy. Showing timely accomplishment, dedication, rather than running off for fun, is a good teaching. Doesn’t mean you can’t run off later!!! Or take your career on the road! Saturn has the wisdom of proven experience. At times the smallest achievement is profound.

Saturn would add acquisitions to the art Museum. Saturn in Sagittarius finds the perfect building site, is the expert who builds the structures and systems, does real estate. Saturn is the scientist, laws, the commander, CEO, master of timing and resources, considers age. He wants to see good things get done in a timely fashion, works hard for the goals. Magician and wisdom.

Fatherhood
, mentoring, being a Grandpa to child and grandchild, coaching from sports, career, to life, may take on special meaning. Discovery of new teaching principles may open doors of precious fulfillment! Both teacher as well as recipient will be delighted by their mutual revelations!

Spiritual teachings could be the basis for a turn in your Path. It could come in casual conversation, a scene that comes before you and the Lights go on! Church may call you, or you may be called to go on a Mission – Peace Corps to environmental. It may be a special person that inspires you, or you do the same skills but for a company that serves the world or makes health better for humans or animals.

Students, this is a time you can make good headway. It’s a good combination for both work and play. Take courses taught by Beings you respect and admire for the results of their ways, who inspire you, that make you proud that you have learned so much. It may be a way of life more than the things you have learned, how to live rather than what you live, that is most important. Whether one special thing or many, be grateful for the lifeway given that will carry you forward.

Plan ahead! Work well and strong before this aspect is exact so things fall into place smoothly and the award is yours! Lucky timing, productive relationships, in the right place! Take a tour of other similar businesses and projects to see how they have done it successfully. Hire a creative consultant, brainstorm projects for next year’s planning. Plan seminars, new locations, business travel, when to go to a sacred site. Select or build a church or school. Broaden your outlines!

But remember, Mercury is Retrograde in Virgo! There will be reversals, rewrites, drop outs, budget chops, different employees, health reconsiderations. Having this lucky aspect in a time of shakeups may bring back retired projects that can be done now that the time is right, people and materials are available! People from past projects that know your work style may be assets. Revisions may be perfect whether old or new projects! It’s perhaps more of a time for considering rather than trying to anchor.

The once only Aug 27 Jupiter sextile Saturn is the active outer planet combination that is in the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon SOLAR TOTAL US ECLIPSE chart and that the Eclipse opens and builds up to! It offers opportunities of prosperity, enjoyable work and in time, a solid future! Saturn is retrograde, going back to meet Jupiter who is coming forward to him! Each is willing. Jupiter in Libra has ideas of expansion, increasing the territory, franchises, more education, travel, publishing, partners with people from diverse cultures. Social connections, symphonies, ballet, art and beauty, galleries are part of their repertoire.

Your Dharma, your mission this life may become joyfully apparent, finally, and a profound step can be taken in its direction. Might go back to school, a specialty school! You have until the end of August with this aspect! Make it count!

If it aspects your chart in a good way, 21 Libra/Sagittarius, get ready for and pay particular attention to Aug 25-26. See your astrologer!

See the 2017 Special Edition Newsletter for upcoming Planetary Patterns!

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Leo 2017 – 2018 Celestial HighLights

Leo Sunbeams & Lightbearers!

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Chris Hemsworth Australian Actor Thor Hero

Aug 11 Leo Chris Hemsworth, Australian Actor, is best known for portraying the ‘Marvel Comics’ superhero, Thor, in the American flick ‘Thor’, a blockbuster that gave him international fame. No surprise since he has the Jupiter conjunct Uranus super fame aspect in Sagittarius. He’s not just famous in his own country, but worldwide! Chris’s Venus, Mercury and Moon in Virgo give him a bank of skills that are remarkably talented, plus tremendous charm! He has a way with words and demands excellence.

The 2012 American superhero film ‘The Avengers’ not only came out as the highest-grosser of the year but also peaked as the third highest-grosser worldwide.

2013 he voiceovered as George Kirk in ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, sequel to 2009’s ‘Star Trek’; and portraying real-life character of James Hunt, the 1976 Formula 1 World Champion, in sports drama film ‘Rush’.

In 2015, he played a convicted computer hacker, Nicholas Hathaway, in action thriller mystery film ‘Blackhat’; tickled the funny bones as Stone Crandall in the comedy flick ‘Vacation’; and played Owen Chase in adventure drama ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ apart from playing Thor in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’.

We don’t have a birthtime for him, but it would surely show how he has such versatility!

7.15.17 For you followers, CinemaBlend says: The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been on fire lately. Their two most recent releases, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, have been met with universal critical acclaim and made some serious cash at the box office. The next installment in the shared universe is highly anticipated, as Thor: Ragnarokwill bring Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk into the Thor franchise for an intergalactic buddy movie. The two heroes are the most powerful members of The Avengers, and now Ruffalo has teased that one of the most hotly debated aspects of Marvel lore will finally be answered: who would win a in a fight, Thor or The Hulk?

A lot of training goes into being this particular super hero! Food, exercise, and, of course, how that engages his kids! Interview

Being a Leo, the sign of children, he has three of his own, including twins! His Moon in Virgo calls him to take good care of them. He is closely associated with ‘The Australian Childhood Foundation’ and supports children facing neglect and abuse. He is a dedicated supporter and spends both time and money in protecting children. He’s a true champion and hero.

Be the Hero of your own life!

Leo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Perseids Meteor Shower Radiant

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

August 12 – 13 – Perseids Meteor Shower. In the Northern Hemisphere, the annual August Perseid meteor shower probably ranks as the all-time favorite meteor shower of the year. Up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The waning gibbous moon will block out many of the fainter meteors this year, but the Perseids are so bright and numerous that it should still be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

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

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

Leo 2017 TimeLine!

Leo has the honor of hosting the amazing Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! The upcoming 5 part Lunar sequence associated with the Mercury Retrograde cycle is profound! There are two new Moons in LEO, the second is the ECLIPSE!

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. Next is the Aug 4 Jupiter square Pluto. It is the next last aspect of the now forward set of six that started Oct 2016. The two late September aspects, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus will finish the set 11/11!

Jupiter is in its final 2+ months of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to find good footing and balance to weather your relationships, make alliances that will hold through times to come, go places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, exchange wisely.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn!

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Leo 2017 – Aug 2018!

Leo Woman Traveler Luggage Heels

Traveling in style into the next year, Leos bring something for every occasion!

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Leo’s year to come. Expect several maturities, endings, new beginnings and exciting new intentions!

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 inconjunct Leo. Leo enjoys being watched, but usually not negative reviews, and if anyone can find the secrets, Pluto in Capricorn has the inclination and means. If necessary fess up, no blackmail! If it is your manager, they have practical advice for your progress, but you may need to be your Self to your fullest to get where your Spirit leads you. It may be challenging to find the right balance. Pluto can bring financial indiscretion or obsessions with illegal relationships, but also may call for you to avoid some self indulgence, detox, save your own life!

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. Though inconjunct, Neptune/Pisces and Leo work well for night time productions and bright lights, music that permeates your Being! Leo is sensitized to quiet stillness when in meditation. There is a letting go of personas that no longer speak true to the heart. It can be confusing at first, then a relief. A call to serve may prevail guided by a transcendent intuition, dreams, a Light that glows. Go to sea! Swim like a dolphin!

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 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! Leo is a fixed sign, strong in itSelf. Uranus has no time for people who are stuck or stubborn. It will seek more fertile soil. That is especially true in Aries, the spontaneous responder, the fastest to see. If you find yourself getting left behind, shake yourself, open your eyes wide and make a run to catch up, fly if you have to – but you will have to update your ways! Disconcerting at first, delightful later! In spite of these two being in trine, a most favorable aspect, this may be the one who gets away. Once they transfer the data, they are off again. You are left to distribute it further. Maybe better as friends – electric and eclectic, part of a like minded community network. No worry. It was fun while it lasted. Console yourself with a new computer!

Uranus in Taurus gives Leo a good challenge. It’s mixed. Both love beauty but in different styles. Taurus likes earth tone comfort, a barefoot walk; Leo likes the latest dramatic fashion, bright enthusiastic colors! Taurus can make a ton of money and hang onto it, but Leo likes to spend it. Leo may find Uranus too fast and Taurus too slow! Uranus wants change, gets bored. Leo is always giving, a show, fundraiser, being a teacher. If Leo celebrates Uranian ideas, more sensible in Taurus, there can be an integration that works. They may not be friends, but there can be an appraisal that changes organic values. Leo may find they can take time out where nothing is expected of them.

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. Leo may need special attention to their hearts – love life, spine and hair. If they are feeling droopy, the healing may be to do what makes them happy not money, to get some exercise, be with people who celebrate them and have gratitude! Chiron in Pisces is askew, inconjunct Leo, inviting them to take a look off to the side, adjust their direction, possibly take some time to rest and refocus. Time to have some sweeter music, gentle the Lion. Less work, get more done. Relationships need healing clarity, gentle consideration, mutual support.

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 and Leo are both high spirited, sometimes competitive. Aries is a sprinter and pusher! Leo, a fixed sign, is more an endurance runner and doesn’t like being pushed off course or before they are ready, which may never happen; they are often late! Leos are not always the athlete, sometimes they are the Lion lazing on the savanna. Aries wants to heal them quickly, refresh them with new ideas that get them up! Aries wants them to have relationships that inspire them and businesses or life work that they can’t wait to get up to do!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through August 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 trines Leo. Leo finds themselves getting neglected things done! Planning ahead helps. Working more in advance, and doing a bit more frequently rather than all at once makes for less stress! There may be some awards, recognition for your good work.Presentations are masterful, right to the point, and brightly illustrated.

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. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

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! Capricorn and Leo make a surprisingly good combination. Each likes having a good reputation and a partner they admire. Leos are up there and Capricorns often work hard and long, excel in their fields. Saturn is realistic, has a history of success, and Leo’s feelings aren’t hurt when suggestions are made. Leo wishes they weren’t lazy at times, and is glad for Capricorn’s boot! Kinda fatherly. Saturn understands age, and won’t abandon you as you age together. You just keep on working together.

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. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Leo says I’ll go, take me with you! Jupiter tells loves stories, about magical alchemy, far away places. Leo loves acting out these tales, giving full voice and heart that makes you feel them as if you were there. Jupiter is blunt at times and in Libra suggests ways that your presentation or demeanor would do better, to consider how other people react. It has ideas how your teaching can be more balanced, opinions to be considered rather than said to be the only and right way. Some of your work may need publishing and it’s time now! Make the connections needed to get that done! At first you may make some mistakes, but you will learn and get better at it.

Jupiter in Scorpio may clash with Leo. Leo senses a judgement, possibly feels they could be undermined, gossiped about so cruelly they might lose their jobs. Ironically, there may be truth to it, things to learn in many ways. A clean Jupiter in Scorpio wants to heal the deeper wounds, all the harder to do because Leo is a fixed sign and resists. Leos are interested and want to learn in spite of themselves, but are shy too in spite of their showy appearance. Scorpio is a fixed sign too and Jupiter is optimistic, so they don’t give up. Examples and options ease the way. Jupiter in Scorpio can make tons of money! Leo doesn’t mind that at all. Jupiter can be the backstage man; Leo out front and loving it! If they trust each other they can be mates for a lifetime.

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 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

2017
Oct 10  Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio
Dec 19 Saturn from Sagittarius to Capricorn!

Leo Sunbeams & Lightbearers!

Leo Woman Sunbeams LightBearers

Sunrise and Sunset are often a time of day you love! At a shore, the mountain top, where energy has volume suits your Spirit well, you are the Sign of the Sun! Sunrise energy is absorbed, and given out during the day. In the evening there is thanks and a sunset recharge before sleep. Dreams may be vivid.

That energy may be an affectionate hug, a smile, words of encouragement. When you walk into a room things just seem to get bigger! It’s no surprise Leos are terrific athletes. They glory in their bodies, and as the Sun’s fire sign, have energy to burn! The Prowess of the Lion gives them strength and the flow of the run! It is a Pride of Lions, of course!

Leo hair is their trademark! It connects the link between spine, heart, mind and cosmos. It is their feelers that sense what’s going on, people’s reactions to them. It attracts people to share and discuss. It brings lovers and relationships. Their hair tells a story about them. Ask them about their hair evolutions.

The Sunbeams may come from center stage! Leos spend a lifetime finding themselves, seeking a purity of personification. They may need to shrug off family and cultural expectations, sexist ideas. They may try out several religions, play many roles to see how that sits with them. They may perform through art and music, tonal qualities of colors, lighting. Being teachers in classrooms with students from many backgrounds is another way of seeing the Self in themselves and others. They can start out arrogant, even bullying, and become wise and accepting of the many precious Paths to the mountain top.

Teen times are especially Leo! Relationships and romance are super important and they often mimic their favorite characters as they explore. Dating holds many questions. Should it be the flashy one, the leader, the most intelligent, the one who has the money, the most athletic, the teacher??!! Hormones may be rampant! Summer jobs can be life changing. Summer camp has its ups and downs. If they have been lazing about, away from their friends, they may be the first to want to go back to school!

Whatever work they do, you can bet they play a leadership role – either up front, or the one that is listened to behind the scenes. They can be keen observers while telling their enthralling stories! They want to be at the top, no amateurs them! There is a part of them that can be fixed in their ideas. If that matches your goals, they can be determined to get you there! Leos can excel at many things, but it is what is in their heart that matters. You can make tons of money and have fame beyond measure, but does it make you happy?

Leos do well running businesses; they are in charge and steady. They like having money to spend, lots of money, so they are willing to work for it! Being a scientist has too many rules and Leos didn’t make them, so why bother?! Bah. Being a psychiatrist is behind the scenes, no natural position for most Leos. They like the showmanship of being lawyers and clergymen, on their feet, in charge, and excel as labor leaders, schoolteachers and doctors! Heroes! They are in a greater arena as political scientists, community leaders and government officials.

It may be night, it may be cloudy and raining, but that golden Sun IS shining! Leo is the sign that is ‘steady in the Light!’ Lightbearers are always on the job. They know there are dark times, dark corners where the frighteners have been. They will be the Light when it’s dark. They will illuminate the dark corners that scare you and they will show you who you can be. They Light the Path before you so you can make your way. They will give you a talisman to carry with you when you are on your own, for when you become a Lightbearer!

Blessed be to all you Radiant Hearts!

Jupiter Square Pluto - Boston Marathon Veteran Earl Granville

The human spirit is alive and well! At the 2017 Boston Marathon Earl Granville, a veteran who participated on his running blade, was actually in fine shape and when his running partner couldn’t finish, he picked her up and carried her over his shoulders to the end.

x
This combination is now the second of a string of 6 aspects that started back in Oct 2016. They will all be going forward/direct, and finish, one by one, now through Nov 11. After this one, Aug 4, there are only four more to go. These last four are what I called the Holiday Four that all happened within 8 days, Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve 2016!

The first Jupiter square Pluto was Nov 24, 2016 in a challenging FIVE Planet T Square. It was the first exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election!  Read about the beginning of the new presidency: Link Not only did this aspect occur at a highly charged political time, but it is an intense political aspect!

The second square was exact March 30, 2017. Here are potent events that happened in the seven days preceding the square:

Mar 22 brought the Terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge and Houses of Parliament.
Mar 24 US President Donald Trump and Republican party forced to pull their attempt to repeal Obamacare.
Mar 28 Trump signs Energy Independence executive order undoing Obama climate-control measures.
Mar 29 UK Prime Minister Teresa May signs article 50 letter, sends to to the EU, formally triggering Brexit.

My retrograde post then was more about Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. 

The third Jupiter square Pluto is soon now, Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse.  As of June 20, Summer Solstice, Jupiter was at 13 Libra, Pluto at I8 Capricorn, already within 5 degrees of each other. They complete the square at 19 Libra/Capricorn. If this closely aspects your personal chart, especially you Capricorns, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out.

Jupiter is on a 11/12 year cycle, so every 3 years it will complete a conjunction, opening square, opposition, closing square, and return to conjunct again.

  • Jupiter last conjuncted Pluto, 12 years ago, once, Dec 11, 2007 at 28 Sagittarius.
  • The opening square was  from Jupiter in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn, 3 times through 2010/11.
  • There were 3 oppositions while Jupiter was in Cancer 2013/14.
  • Now we are having the third of 3 squares while Jupiter is in Libra 2016/17.
  • Next will be the 2020 conjunctions starting another 12 year cycle. Jupiter will be in Capricorn again, Pluto, the slowest moving planet, still in Capricorn.

You see, Jupiter/Pluto connections are not so rare. but Pluto goes into Aquarius in 2023. It won’t be back in Capricorn for another 248 years! That means this square is the last of its kind for a long, long time. The 2020 Capricorn conjunction then takes on special meaning. Before the Jupiter/Pluto exact conjunction, March 18, 19 and 20, 2020 there is a strong 3 outer planet conjunction as Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet leaves Capricorn! Mars the Activator is there, and on the 18th, Moon is too, making a 5 planet stellium in Capricorn! Jupiter will be at 22 degrees, Pluto at 24, Saturn at 29. This Aug 4 square is the formation leading up to it, breaking the old house down, opening gateways to the future of Capricorn!

Serious other events have occurred since that first aspect in Nov 2016. One of the results has been how much people are seeing it depends on each one of us to live what we want to see happen regardless of governmental dictates. We must truly live our ethics. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is stepping up to the plate regarding the Paris Agreements. States are signing on for the Paris Agreements. Cities are choosing 100% Renewable Energy policies. Worldwide we are seeing events that will continue to DO what it takes to make things better for the planet and ourselves and our children!

Jupiter in Libra wants growthful open relationships, to expand their network of alliances, to point to the future. As US government is pulling back from world relationships – with our neighbors in Mexico and Canada, stopping immigration, leaving the Paris Agreements, in fact not even wanting a relationship with our planet/climate control, abandoning protecting our cherished lands – it is causing other alliances to be born to take up the slack and not let progress die in its tracks. There is unity like never before.

Pluto in Capricorn symbolizes the backlash of the old guard (Capricorn), it’s not going down without a fight (Libra). The fact that it has to fight shows it is on its last legs. Some old ways are good and always will be. Some were instigated out of not realizing, not having foresight (Jupiter) of the expenditures of natural resources, extinction. Some came from pure greed (Pluto). It calls for massive education (Jupiter), person by person. Every relationship needs to be respectfully questioned. Both sides need to be considered. Good things will come from both. Pluto in Capricorn has powerful practical good sense, some very timely, some pure necessity. It knows what measures can be taken while the long term goal is in progress. It knows what to do so windows aren’t missed while Jupiter in Libra is out traveling, playing or socializing at art class. Yet we all know a lot of deals are made while playing golf! Sometimes relaxation helps the brain see the whole picture and find remarkable solutions! Both Jupiter and Pluto have a lot to offer.

We need to be steady in the Light while Pluto is in Capricorn until 2023. Six more years. Pluto 20 years in Aquarius, 2023-2043, will be exceedingly different! It could be extreme chaos, tremendous freedom, technology and innovation beyond belief, insanity or enlightenment! Stunning collaborative consciousness, the time when artificial intelligence becomes greater than human intelligence – singularity! The last time Pluto was in Aquarius, 1777 to 1799, individual rights and freedom were challenged by the French and American Revolutions. There may be a different kind of Revolution coming, but it will happen! We shall pray.

Right here at home, personally, healthwise, Jupiter is weight gain, hips/thighs. Libra rules the kidneys, lower back and ovaries, balance. Lower back pain, and problems caused by too much sugar or rich food are common complaints. Pluto is the detoxing planet, colon and eliminatory organs, sexual organs. It also has to do with seeing your therapist. Capricorn is bones, knees especially, and skin, being cold and tired, depression. Grief and loneliness can figure in. All of this together is a complicated venue. Take care of yourself, get expert care if you need it. Keep your balance, let go of real or imagined hurts. Eat well, find peace. Peace can be in meditation or taking a meaningful active stance. Ballet, Tai Chi.

It’s easy to see that relationships, for those of you having factors in your charts close to these degrees, may have some challenges. Jupiter in Libra can be forthright and not so clear about personal boundaries. They are curious, want an explanation, the whole story. That’s not Pluto’s nature. Pluto in Capricorn is conservative, cautiously naturally protects its own for many reasons, some of which will never be anyone else’s business. It’s not just their secret but the secret of another as well.

Matters of truth may come up. There could be sneakiness or flirting that misleads others to think there is deception. Innocently it may be getting that surprise birthday present, or it could be you have been in denial and there really is a problem – personal, financial, illegal. If time doesn’t tell the story in a good way, then you may need to part. Future wishes may be quite different and that’s exciting, or there really is no pleasure together because they are that different. Maybe you are no longer willing to live a half life, hoping, compromising, held back. Jupiter in Libra doesn’t want for anyone to hurt, but sometimes all that’s left is letting go. Pluto in Capricorn loves deeply and is no quitter, but natural endings do come along.

If things have been neglected, it may be time for that rebuilding your future! Your relationship may have a solid foundation and you all make a timely rescue and recovery! There may be more juice than there has been in a long time. Make time for each other, take a little trip somewhere special, give each other gifts. Maybe even renew your vows!

Careers may crumble and you may be glad. Finally that’s over! See about a restoration business or recycling. Check out financial businesses, medical, research, sciences, technical work. Look into building materials. Or look to the arts and social people businesses, travel, resorts, sports, imports, anthropology, universities! Combine these marvelous opportunities! You could go back to school. If finances are slim, do a little at a time. Take a good sharp look while this aspect is afoot. Breakthroughs are quite possible!

Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for Aug 4 and then for 2020. Together we can do it! Steady on.

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.

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.

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!
1st Grand Fire Trine, Zero Degree, 4 Planets in Leo!

Sunday July 23, at 2:46 AM Pacific, 0 Leo 44!

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, US SOLAR TOTAL 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 his 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!

Having come close to opposite Neptune in Pisces, logical Mercury in Virgo has had hints of the divine order that transcends that of worldly goods. But using that higher order as a model, connections made here have more meaning now. We can literally be transported by our good health, the ease of flow created easily carries us to the next level before we even realize we are there!

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, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Goddesses! 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 befriended. There is a celebration of the genius of difference and profound awakening. Divine minds. It’s a time of wholeness. One Heart, many Souls.

This 28 degree Leo is also important to the Mercury Retrograde cycle we are in at this time. The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun!

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!
