Second Full Moon in March, Blue Moon!
Mars/Saturn, Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron 29 Pisces/Sheat!

Saturday Mar 31 at 5:37 AM Pacific, 10 Libra/Aries 45

Full Moon Raven by Girard

Wanderer’s Moon by Francois Girard. The magical Raven, a deeply mythic creature full of mystery and playful surprise! The knot work is inspired by Viking art.

Some call the second Full Moon in March the Crow Moon. It’s a Moon of deeper seeking. Among our relationships balance and unions are sought. In our Spirits, we master the realms above and below, air and earth, sunrise and sunset, firelight and darkness.

Moon in Libra is quite interested in these balances. We are looking for a working agreement, acceptance of differences – personal and cultural, each offering their own special talent. Beauty and comfort count. A lovely home matters as a gathering place for family and friends. Community law guides and keeps us safe. Women strive for equality. Libra enjoys political skirmishes as long as it is a fair fight.

Libra is ruled by Venus, who has just moved into her other sign Taurus. Taurus is steady, sometimes stubborn, generally patiently kind and supportive, even financially. There is a concern for being naturally healthy with radiant beauty like nature’s flowers. Good values are stabilized. Touch and comfort are given as possible. Massage and yoga make sense. As Venus goes by, appreciating our efforts, people relax and feel safe to listen to each other, find the good in what they each have to say.

Sun/Mercury in Aries, are on fire, independent, fearless leaders of heart and mind! Aries will take up Libra’s battle as a front line soldier of Light! Sun is teacher, generous, bold, in Aries, fresh! Mercury speaks quickly and to the point, in Aries often not mincing words. The invitation to do new, more and better is cast upon the wind and other people of courage respond to the call. Moon in Libra, the old pro, courts their intelligence, buffers and blends outspoken opinions, pulls the best ideas together, goes back and forth to get a working team, escorts them to the next level! The project takes off!

At various previous times they all were square Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. With Mars in Cap there is rewarding efficiency, getting the job done early and well. With Saturn there is restraint, consideration of the rules, cultural needs and respect, matters of age and wisdom. Now that Moon/Sun & Mercury are past this pair, they are off to meet new people, work on their own with constraints they have accepted, or with others as makes sense. They are more focused, mindful of priorities and the time it really takes. They keep the long term in mind.

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE  April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered. See more about the Sign Change!

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

Scheat, however is usually depicted differently. Robson said with Neptune (in Pisces): Prominent in inventive, occult or psychic matters, persecuted, peculiar domestic conditions, many accidents, danger of drowning. Ebertin more kindly says: Tied up with ‘malefics’, this could lead the native to lose his life in catastrophes, such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe suicide. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people, it can have a positive effect on their mental creativity, if these people are ready to receive such inflow.

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

3) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

NEW MOON – Jupiter/Pluto, Mercury Direct!
Uranus Conjunct, Double Stelliums, Chiron Sign Change, Galactic Center!

Sunday April 15 at 6:57 PM Pacific, 26 Aries 02

2018 Aries New Moon Mercury Direct, Jupiter Sextile Pluto

There is a certain element of Ascension to this New Moon. It embraces many new beginnings, invites us to reach for so much more.

New Moons are often thought to be quiet. For water and earth signs that might be true, but not this one! Aries is the roman candle of the zodiac! They might burn bright and take a break, but they are back up soon again, lighting the night! Yes it may be dark out there, but all the better to see the contrast of night and bright! And for this New Moon, conjunct Uranus, the planet of AQuarius and the stars in the heavens, it’s going to be wild, admirably unpredictable, sudden and astonishing, unprecedented! Unforgettable. Your friends need to be there! Too good to miss, and to help you if you need it!

Moon feels his/her way about avoiding danger, soothing the troops, keeping everyone hydrated. She is quick to intervene if things get too hot. Sun may be strutting about a bit, feeling his oats, proud of his prowess. Not everyone may agree and that could be a tad prickly. But he is big hearted and may sing the praises of others as well. He wants to lead and lift them up.

An Aquarian/Uranian type who blows in may be so interesting everyone forgets their own pet peeves, and are enthralled by this remarkable stranger among them. Aquarians are often humanitarian in spirit. Intelligent beyond mere words. They can be so over your head you think they are crazy, but they may just be way further along the track than we are. They are evolutionists, in a manner of thinking, time travelers, almost as if they are from other worlds. And who’s to say they aren’t?! They can be oddly detached observers, seems like they don’t care, yet everything means something or they wouldn’t be hanging out. It’s a limbo stasis, suspense, waiting to see what happens. Gives everyone some time to think before….. If the unusual happens, take your time if possible. Could be worth the pause.

This condition of awakening Uranus brings may help us see a broader palette.

  1. April 13-16 We have Double Stelliums at the NEW MOON! 3 Planets in Capricorn – Saturn, Mars and Pluto plus 4 planets in Aries – Mercury and Moon/ Sun/Uranus! Capricorn the old, traditional, and the new, new, new!
  2. April 17-19  Moon has left Aries, Chiron has entered Aries maintaining the 4 planet Aries stellium!
  3. April 14 is the 2nd Jupiter sextile Pluto that has been continuous since the first one in January! See more
  4. The 15th is this New Moon trine the Galactic Center and Aries MERCURY DIRECT! Mercury is holding an 8 day station April 11 to 18. That’s a tremendous absorption, anchoring and focus!
  5. April 17 Chiron changes signs from Pisces to ARIES! It will be in Aries with Uranus for 28 days!

The New Moon in Aries, Chiron’s sign change into Aries, all the planets in Aries, add up to NEW BEGINNINGS in several areas at once!
It’s quite an opportunity, may be confusing and overwhelming, and will happen with or without you! You might as well be there and contribute your part, take from it in a good way! You will be the better for it! Even if the beginning isn’t 100% perfect, you are on your way! Fresh independence sure feels good.

The New Moon at 26 degrees Aries trine the Galactic Center makes for even more marvelous changes! We may need to think bigger than ever before! It calls us to act in behalf of the greatest good we can barely imagine. Sometimes you don’t have to understand it, just do it. There are times to trust higher knowledge and your instincts. It’s bigger than we are, sees far beyond the possible future we imagine.

Mercury in Aries is square Saturn. There are going to be delays, possible censoring until this square is over the 25th. There could be doubt, fear, a lack of backup expertise. Otherwise aspects are favorable, so keep working the rest of the project. Make proposals when things are better established and fall into place now that Mercury will soon be moving forward again after its 8 day station. Breakthroughs.

The March 31 Full Moon had Chiron at 29 degrees too, and this is the last of it for now…later on there will be another period at 29 Pisces. So again:

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! During the New Moon, Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered.

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

Scheat, however is usually depicted differently.

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter now has sextiled Pluto April 14! As the first aspect of 2018, it set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Ms Venus at 19 Taurus is opposite the ‘critical’ zodiacal degree 19 Scorpio. That was considered a dangerous degree by oldtime astrologers. Yet people are born on that degree and live well. At this New Moon Venus is opposite Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio has the deepest longings, even extreme obsessions and a hella lot of charisma! Venus, in one of her own signs Taurus, has or wants a deep connection with her body, to be attractive no matter how she actually looks, is often possessive and loves furs, sensation, good foods, textures. She may have a melodious voice, a sweet way about her, an enchantress in her own right. Values are emphasized. The inner self seeks right relationship with our planet and peace. Jupiter seeks the Truth, power from deep within to be used in a good way, to heal, teach others how to heal. Venus brings the people in, Jupiter gets to work.

Venus is powerfully placed, grounding those who are fearful. She trines, the most favorable link, Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. There is steady depth of attention brought to bear witness. Pluto in Capricorn records the event in the archives, documents errors, corrections, progress, that others may always do better still.

Venus has left a great aspect with Mars, has admired his sensibility, he is so glad he pleased her, feels great, is rarin’ to go! Mars further ties the group together! He sextiles, opportunity, Jupiter, exact the 23rd. He conjuncts Pluto, exact the 26th! Mars is initiation, activation, ignition, leadership, action! Jupiter sees the big Path long term; Mars jumps right on it speeding up progress. Pluto in Capricorn is the internal steering committee. Mars in Capricorn speaks their language, demonstrates his proposal, corrections, updates, protocol, and they are willing to go along with him. All in all, productive with the least effort in the shortest time with the least expense!

2) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

With Uranus so strongly with our Aries New Moon, don’t miss the window, cut loose!

2018 Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Dog! Australian Shepard

Those blue eyes! Australian Shepard by Eileen Kumpf/Getty Images

In the US New Year’s Day started with the Full Wolf Supermoon! The Chinese New Year is the year of the Brown Earth Dog!

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is a Solar Eclipse Feb 15 at 1:05 PM PACIFIC at 27 Aquarius! In addition, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, making it like a triple eclipse event! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear. Feb 16, New Year day, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the Brown Earth Dog.

Previous Dog years were 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, now this one 2018, and next is 2030! The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Rooster, and before the Pig! When determining your year, remember, the first day of the New Year falls at the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so the date of the new year varies year to year. Dogs are akin to western astrology’s 7th sign Libra.

When I think of Earth Dogs in a literal sense, I think of low to the ground pups like Dachshunds and Basset Hounds, and dogs like Terriers that love to hunt animals that live in the ground. When I think of Libra, pretty well groomed social dogs come to mind, like Poodles, Papillons and King Charles Spaniels, maybe a purebred that’s show quality! Could be a fluffy pure cute, or a non-shedding sleek short hair. Super smart and courageous working dogs are certainly on the ground! Corgis, Australian Shepards, Queensland Healers, Collies! In the Spirit sense, dogs nowadays are considered part of our families, loyal protectors that would give their lives for us.

Human Dogs certainly live up to these admirable traits! They are perceived as very loyal, honest and faithful companions, loving and attentive, not argumentative and they dislike confrontations. Sweetly, Dogs are usually good at remembering anniversaries and other special relationship moments.

Just like a dog will love you no matter who you are, Chinese dogs are considered to be fair, unprejudiced and companionable. They are always alert and aware of things and people around them. Though some prefer to work alone or in small groups, the Libran Dog is adaptable enough to fit in anywhere. These are hard workers who are conscientious, responsible and reliable. They are good with finances and would rather save up than borrow. They live within their means, are frugal buyers, favor quality and real value over quantity. They usually acquire a comfortable lifestyle.

Dogs’ weakness is they tend to be private worriers, sometimes giving the impression they have a stubborn personality. Better to verbalize your concerns, get fresh insights with others. Bless their hearts, they are likely to worry more about others than themselves. They seem to sometimes try and take responsibility for or be too understanding of the actions of others. Denial or too much forgiving. Having a supportive partner will help these doggies to share their personal thoughts and anxieties so they don’t mount up.

Outdoors is good, boring is bad! Dogs need to breathe some great fresh air and get exercise, love meeting new people! They can be serious but know how to take time out  to refresh themselves. Share walking, driving, running, or just relaxing in the garden with your dog friends. As long as it is outside they are not usually fussy about what it involves doing.

Dogs are instinctual and intelligent. They will accept leadership from a true leader as long as it makes sense to their belief system. Dogs are not always leaders themselves but will be close to leaders, who can count on the Dog to save the day. But don’t forget the bite! Always cautious and alert, sometimes undecided, the Earth Dog will bite when he feels threatened or betrayed! You may lose his business.

Famous Dogs:  Fire Dog Trump – this was an ultimate Eastern insult: North Korea said Trump’s speech to UN was akin to ‘sound of a barking dog.’ Famous dogs: Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Bocelli, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, Uma Thurman, Bill Clinton, George Gershwin, Judy Garland, Steven Spielberg, Justin Bieber, David Bowie!

Famous Earth Dogs: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Billy Idol, Al Capone, Prince!

A heartfelt welcome and shout out to all the new little Brown Earth Dogs to be born this year!

Gong xi fa cai, my dear friends, and especially to all you Dogs! Woof!

Jupiter Trine Neptune Cabo San Lucas Resort Couple Relaxing Ocean View

Proposal or Honeymoon! Whether at a Resort or on a cruise, or you own them, either way, it can be a dream come true!

Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune is magical reform, a deep harmony of purpose, super dreams come true! They can be financial, personal relationships that deepen, long awaited cleansing healing, spiritual Gateways traveled. Could be the cruise of a lifetime!

The Dec 2 last aspect of 2017 was also the first of the three trines. There are two more that are close in degrees from the second one May 25 to the third one Aug 19, 2018.

It happens that Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius started the day of that first aspect, Dec 2 2017! The first phase of the Rx cycle started Nov 15, so all the day’s degrees preceding the Rx to the exact trine date Dec 2, were crossed twice more! Things on your mind that lead up to the exact trine have been reconsidered. When Mercury went direct/forward, those events were finalized with well tested mature solutions! Mercury was in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign, the neighboring sign following Scorpio. It enticed Jupiter to offer options of long term value, promises of future potential. Scorpio may have at moments felt one-upped, but Jupiter instinctively went for the best possible outcome and Scorpio is no fool. Scorpio likely allowed Jupiter to use some of his monies for the venture!

At that time, I wrote: Mercury Rx in Sagittarius squares Pisces, the sign Neptune of the Sea is at home. Neptune/Pisces, though a flexible planet/sign, may be a little harder to bring on board. First of all Neptune has his own mighty rhythms, has the vision of the Soul. A mere project proposed by a flashy dancer does not always impress him, yet he does see more about how it fits in the world about him, possibly an important piece, a stepping stone maybe. Be a good facilitator! Be persistent. He can at times be other worldly and it’s hard to get his attention. There are many layers to what he sees, a complexity beyond words, worlds that merge and diverge, flowing within each other! Line up your flow with the flow of his tides. Sync up. Show him how things link, really listen to his alternatives. It may be the biggest experience you have ever had! After all, Jupiter is trining, the best possible aspect, with Neptune right now! No neglect, get to it, don’t miss the window! Use this divine gateway, the Rainbow! With Mercury Rx, you have three chances and it may take all three to get it done! This retrograde may be super valuable!

I hope you really did use this window, perhaps kept some notes! It is still happening for you, even if you don’t remember exactly what you thought or what happened then. During the months of the two more aspects to come it may come back to you and you succeed from where it left off before!

The sign change Uranus into Taurus precedes the second Jupiter trine Neptune. See more. The first Jupiter trine Neptune, big dreams, was while Uranus was in Aries, the sign of new times, action to be taken, leadership. This time the dreams will be Taurus flavored. Like a farmer with the land, steady dawn to dusk, plowing, sowing, watering, feeding, harvesting, providing our food, our dreams will show us how to do these things in all ways in our lives. As in the old song, Bible verse, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. This allowing, patience, the skill to harmonize with natural cycles, will continue to be emphasized because the introductory aspect, the second Jupiter trine Neptune, continues closely until it finishes in summer, August 19! This is a very psychic aspect and will keep us tuned in, precisely. Since it is an easy trine, we may not even notice it, and that is a beautiful trick of the heavens. Sometimes the most profound aspects happen without our really even giving it much thought. One day we just notice we have changed. It just gradually came over us….

August 19 is during a Mercury station as Mercury turns Direct, out of retrograde, Aug 18. It anchors the feeling of peace the trine has brought. We are focused with the intent of the vision. Mercury figures in strongly at the beginning and end of the three trines. At the end, Mercury is 11 Leo. The words are on the billboard! Leo lights the mind, enlightenment. It’s in the sign of the heart of gold! Creative and expressive! Self realization. A summer celebration party! If the trine has brought you beauty and psychic insights, it will bring you much to celebrate as its full reward is released. Mars is still retrograde, but will go Direct August 27, soon to release its energy as well!

Jupiter in Scorpio may increase your finances exponentially especially if you use your intuition! That means choosing investors with excellent creds and using the best timing! Or, you may find yourself spending more than you have in your entire life! And every penny may be worth it! Buying oceanfront property may be just the ticket! Could even be in another country. Invest in international concert tours! Make music! Put your art or photos up so they can be seen!

If you go on that cruise, there may be profound experiences, insights about people, the condition of the planet. Exceptional relationships may be intense, change your life. Trust or scams, no denial. Sometimes we need to face our success and stand well for ourselves. You may find yourself deeply in love whether it’s good for you or not. Love is love and sex may be tantric, mysterious and magical! With Neptune it may have more to do with your Soul connection than the assessments of your accountant. If you go sharesies, invest to test the waters. As wonderful as things seem to be, prenups may be the right choice to start. Jupiter is a bit Pollyanna at times, Neptune can be in denial.

Relaxation is vital to our being. Whether it be letting your hair down, quiet time meditating, sitting around with your lover watching sunsets, going to sleep and dreaming, playing music, dabbling with your art, it’s all good. Rest is vital to healing and intuition. It’s hard to see well when we are stressed or tired. Subtle strengths are as important as conscious awareness.

It’s time to make some upward spirited career, life Path choices. The more in accord with your core you are, the better your health will be, the better your relationships. You will prosper in a good way, be a community member in good standing, perhaps being able to gift educational funds, people in frail conditions, helpful research. You may determine to counsel or coach others with their relationships, successfully work with people in addiction recovery, physical therapy or with hospice. Helping people with their finances is a wonderful way to get people through their lives with dignity. Working on a cruise line or guiding trips of all kinds opens people’s hearts planet wide, builds links through understanding and compassion. Ocean and water sports businesses are refreshing and exhilarating!

Research may be quite secretive but a substantial body of work could be done. Apply for grants, make proposals for your thesis, establish a location. Have your astrologer do some AstroLocality work for you, both for personal and professional purposes. Financial cycles, medical cures, learning matters, comparisons of countries and related topics could be good choices.

Go to school, go back to school! Learning how to learn, choosing something meaningful soothes our Soul, encourages us to do the greater good. It calls us to be more productive, be healed and heal others in whatever way we choose. It shows us how to keep focus and keep the goal in mind at all times.

Sign up for Religious or Spiritual Studies, go to a temple training, seek out sacred places, do a vision quest. Do take some time at the ashram or the seaside shrine. Do some tantric yoga, learn how to meditate. Go alone, go with friends, a group of like spirited Souls, choose a proven guide. Challenge yourself but be sensible too. Have your AstroLocality done, and let your astrologer check your personal timing.

Celebrate by swimming, snorkeling, exploring caves and big riversides, water skiing, surfing the shores. Hang out and party with water loving friends. If you stay on land, consider a terrific motorcycle! Scorpio has an amazing ability to recover and great stamina; Jupiter has fast reflexes and generally good luck; Neptune/Pisces knows where to be when and with whom. Just be realistic about your ability and keep good company. Take good care of your precious self.

The next truly potent aspect is the April 12, 2022 Jupiter conjunct Neptune! These are the last major trine and conjunction aspects of Jupiter to Neptune in Pisces. Sometimes we don’t think how profound an aspect may be. It will be 12 years before Jupiter goes into Pisces again after the 2022 conjunction, but Neptune will go into Aries in 2025. It will be 2175 before Neptune goes into Pisces again and these same aspects will happen! Please be very present for these. They are an important part of our progress, a last chance of their kind.

Scorpio! European Space Agency trains six astronauts from all over the world in Sardinian cave!

ESA’s cave training prepares astronauts to work as an international team in real exploration conditions. Sending astronauts underground to survive and explore Sardinian caves in Italy for almost a week is just one element of their long training. The Sardinian caves are isolated from the outside world. The astronauts need to get used to confined spaces, minimal privacy, technical challenges and limited equipment and supplies for hygiene and comfort – just like in space, a lot like in Scorpio.

Background, Context!

Jupiter into Scorpio is first, Oct 10. Saturn is second, into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, leading into Winter Solstice, his own special time of year!

Sign changes set the tone and standards of their time. Each sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Jupiter in Libra learns how to establish fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be shared and deepened. Saturn in Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to build a significant Capricorn achievement.

Jupiter makes 4 repeated aspects that started late 2016, opened 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set was Jupiter opposition Uranus that finished the Jupiter set Sep 27. Saturn’s two aspects, running with the Jupiter set, finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!

Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus starts a year long series of nothing but positive aspects! Uranus is the planet of awakening, Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change together to find freedom. We can be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, Scorpio is Pluto’s sign! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice sign Capricorn builds strong because it knows what powerful weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.

Jupiter is in Libra until Oct 10. See Jupiter into LIBRA! While still in Libra, work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! In Scorpio, Jupiter goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality. Some relationships will be left behind, others renewed, rededicated, deepened. Profound relationships will be sought. Intensity is potent.

While in Scorpio, Jupiter makes two repeated aspects, three times each. The set starts with Jupiter trine Neptune, then sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet! Both are considered favorable. With Neptune there are Spiritual options, lucky dreams, oceanic business possibilities. With Pluto, there is a possible successful lifelong marriage that enhances business opportunities. Good time for recycling, restoration, remodeling and resale of properties. Could be breakthroughs in medical treatments. Fundraising at the right times may do well for years to come. Do check your personal timing with your astrologer!

In Scorpio Jupiter can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time of day. After we get used to this change of venue, two months later Saturn makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter into Scorpio October 10 

Sagittarius’ Jupiter is noted for long journeys, camping maybe. Scorpio loves things down under, dark is fine. Jupiter is a Fire planet, Scorpio is a Water sign. Sex sizzles or is steamy! Oil and gas. Definitely volcanic! You may find your Kundalini awakening full tilt!

Intense adventure with a hint of danger! Jupiter is more lucky than anyone should be and has longevity to boot! Scorpio’s sixth sense is always on, and threads through danger like through the eye of a needle! If there is an oops, Jupiter and Scorpio heal amazingly quickly. The biggest danger is distraction, losing focus, getting off track. Jupiter can spook like a horse just to see what will happen and even the best gamblers lose sometimes. Then there is the phrase, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Search and Rescue Maybe you are/were lost in Scorpio and Jupiter comes to find you. Or you are hell bent on getting away, maybe even a disappearance identity change scenario. Like the slavery underground railway you might travel by night, a long breathholding way to go. Or you love the strenuous challenge of finding people whether it is in the wilderness, underwater, or psychologically as a counselor! If there are disasters or injuries, your medical training keeps people alive. Perhaps there are matters of justice, an abuse of funds, a kidnapping. Needs to establish safe places, recovery, to restore our trust and faith!

Medical discovery requires a lot of faith as well as funding. Jupiter, ever optimistic, looks for the possibilities against the odds and in the unknown. In Scorpio there is no giving up. Scorpios know what suffering can be and how grave a danger continued suffering can be. Sometimes we love and lose with bitterness and shame. If there are physical, mental or spiritual impairments, Jupiter in Scorpio wants that to be cured as possible, or understood and there be relief. Traveling nurses and doctors will treat during epidemics and disasters, their own lives threatened, to help others.

Truth or consequences! Jupiter looks for the Truth. Scorpio has secrets, does and doesn’t look for Truth. Scorpio already knows some of the story anyway. It wants to know, but once it does, it doesn’t always share, and often for good reason. A Truth naively spoken or blurted out even with good intent, can do irreparable damage or set progress back for a long time at great cost. Revenge may be best served cold much later, but is sadly carried in a dark place in the injured person. Other times it finally comes out, all of it, and repairs can be started or a situation can finally be left behind. Jupiter will forgive, be optimistic or just move on. Scorpio, however, knows how to do endings. Loyal as they are, when they finally give up, there is no chance of going back. Zero. So, please be careful. Don’t push too hard and get zinged. Be considerate of deep feelings. You don’t have to understand or know everything. No poking the Tiger to see what it will do.

Further than you thought! Jupiter could just go on forever, and so could Scorpio. Oh my! Before you know it, you have run out of gas, it’s dark, and you didn’t pay attention to the signs! No snacks and no blankies. Oops! Hey, sometimes it’s fun to improvise and survive anyway! Or, you put your focus on it, anticipated the snags, asked for help, and got so more along that the project will be finished days in advance! You may have gotten well past half way and why turn back?!

Estimates are a snap. Jupiter can see potential and Scorpio looks for grit and knows the right price. Jupiter looks for how comprehensive your range of vision is, the scope of your education, that you won’t frivolously take chances like gambling, whether you will be a generous contributor to the greater cause. Scorpio susses out whether you can handle yourself when the chips are down and if you are astute at assessing others and their financial conditions. They will check whether you are easily seduced, can handle funds and don’t cheat with money or love. They don’t want to jeopardize their important plans. Don’t fool around; tell them what you can do very well. That’s the part they will engage you for. However, they may see a potential in you that you didn’t realize you have, and place you more accurately! Quite better than expected!

Jupiter in Scorpio with Other Signs!

Water Sign harmony! Scorpio is the second Water sign. Cancer is the Mother. Scorpio is the Other, our Life Mate. PIsces is the All is One, Spirit of Soul. Water signs flow into every crevice, are quick to see disturbances, are absorbed by feeling. Cancer wears her shell and can pinch you so you remember! Scorpio has the protective ground Scorpion, the Eagle to pierce the veils, revelation, and the Phoenix to escape. Pisces has the slithers, those fine silent fishy scales that merge and flex along waves of consciousness.

There are challenges with the other Fixed signs Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. Running away Jupiter is too frivolous and undependable for stay-with-the-land Taurus. Taurus is left behind in a heartbeat. Scorpio is opposite. While Taurus is guarding the loot, Scorpio wants to invest in the market or partner up in an investment! Leo is great with Jupiter, together inspiring each other to dramatic gestures, gamble and risk everything, teach! But Scorpio doesn’t trust them to keep their secrets and without thinking, Leo can put them on the spot. Leo spends Scorpio’s money for sure, and that gambling can be a problem. Eventually Scorpio may be forced to cut the credit access. Jupiter and Aquarius can easily run away together, wide open spaces call them, as far as you can see… Scorpio wants to know where they are, but Aquarius is no bird in the cage. Aquarius may be a total loner, and happy at it, but Scorpio needs a deep and loyal connection. Unpredictable Aquarius may have zillions of friends, but Scorpio could find them just too out of the box and is unsettled.

Fiery Aries with fire planet Jupiter are perhaps each just too independent. Either could go somewhere else in a moment. Aries and Scorpio are old soldiers, but they have different styles. Aries is a feisty frontliner while Scorpio sneaks silently behind the enemy lines invisibly, Ninja style.

Sagittarius is Jupiter’ sign, so there is rapport there, yet it is Scorpio’s neighboring sign, very different. It is as outgoing as Scorpio usually isn’t! Jupiter/Sagittarius are mutable, whimsical, changeable, while Scorpio is a fixed sign, it’s purpose to stabilize. But Sag is already gone. Poker faced Scorpio is relieved, no longer having to watch his back, protect his secrets, but misses that fun Sag who gets him out and makes him laugh. While there, Sag stirs the cauldron to see what rises! Scorpio may resist, meaning it will be no easy feat to get close enough right away, or maybe never. Often adventuring Sagittarius just won’t wait that long. Jupiter is usually well meaning, but that doesn’t mean you get the keys to the kingdom. Jupiter in Scorpio will not always be a comfortable combination.

Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn Scorpio is midway, sextile, between Virgo and Cap. Plenty of potential. What Jupiter in Scorpio can fund, those earth signs can make happen! Virgo is mutable, adaptable and generally hard working and dependable. Jupiter likes to take time off to play. But earthy Virgo and stabilizing Scorpio are detail and perfection oriented, so the bookkeeping gets done, things kept in order. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet has been in Capricorn since 2008, and will be until 2024, well established. Comparatively Jupiter in Scorpio only 1 year is a blip on the radar that Pluto will incorporate. With Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio the absorption will be easier. Some old conservative Capricorn behaviors, business structures, will linger, but if Jupiter can show them a better way and how to incorporate that with little expense and super returns, Pluto in Cap will make the changes. Jupiter sextile Pluto is a do business combination! Casual Jupiter may look the Fool, but don’t underestimate him in Scorpio. Don’t miss out on the potentials he offers.

Air signs Gemini and Libra. Jupiter has just left Libra, so what laws were made are on the books, needing to be blended in to Scorpio relationships, business and health practices. Liaison’s need to be tended. A balance has been set. Gemini is Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius’ opposite sign. Gemini provides the information Jupiter sifts to see trends. Talkative Gemini and Libra may drive quiet observant Scorpio a bit nuts at times. Have meaty info and be pithy in your brief presentation or Scorpio may turn his back, move on without you.

Jupiter Return!

Jupiter Returns are every 11 to 12 years. Jupiter comes back to the same place it was in our birth charts. Of course, the other planets currently in the sky aren’t where they were before, so each return is different, yet the essence of Jupiter with Jupiter in its birth sign, and the house (section) of your chart it is in, and the aspects it makes, are the same. A planet conjuncting itself has an effect of purity. It’s a reminder of your original intent when you were born. Jupiter Returns are considered lucky, and in Scorpio can indicate wealth! But sometimes they make us see a Truth we have been avoiding and in Scorpio it may pay to see your therapist. If there are difficulties, it may exaggerate them. Expansion and growth in this case can mean obsession/compulsion, being or becoming overweight. Or you can win the lotto! Maybe you always wanted a horse, and in Scorpio, it could be a winner! Or you take the trip of a lifetime, which might be to embark on education or training that makes all the difference! Maybe you waited a long time and finally find a partner that impresses you. This may be the time to write and publish! Jupiter tells extraordinary tales and Scorpio journalists may have a secret to write about that is more safely cloaked in a novel. A documentary could be exquisite with images to make you laugh and weep at the same time!

There are many extraordinary people who will be having or would have had their Jupiter Returns 2017/18! The Dalai Lama, David Bowie, Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears, Elvis Presley, Justin Bieber, Uma Thurman, Mariah Carey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Aleister Crowley, Steven Spielberg, and, uh, Charles Manson and Ted Bundy! Many of these people are/were intense, have been in life and death situations, had huge financial circumstances, and high notoriety or charisma!

Phoenix, Eagle or bat?! Jupiter flies high like the Sagittarian arrow. The Scorpio Eagle soars, a bird of prey, with keen vision putting things in perspective, showing us the reason for being. Scorpio Halloween bats fly at night using their ‘radar’ to ping off their surroundings. A bat eats 6,000 to 8,000 insects each night, keeping our environment in balance. Free of biters, naggings, they clear the air and the mind! Jupiter enhances Scorpio’s powers to transform. At times there is burn out, a crash and burn, and the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Scorpio heals miraculously, and is a superb healer, both physical and mental! Jupiter enhances and amplifies all those possibilities!

If you are crawling out of the tunnel into the Light, Scorpio may have given you gifts of power within. You left fear behind. Healing happened when you were stripped of all dignity and became so humble you became permeable. Jupiter carried the coals of the caravan from camp to camp, the Light. Spiritually speaking, you may be having a burning fire Kundalini awakening, a burning away of the dross, become gifted with clear sight to see where you are going. By the time you are done with Scorpio, you are ready to become the Sagittarian Pathfinder, the Teacher. A lot can happen in one year.

Nov 8, 2018 Jupiter will be coming home to his own sign Sagittarius, starting a new 11/12 year cycle! The goodness of Scorpio is the foundation for Sagittarius.

Wishing you strength and the deepest love on your remarkable journey.

Happy Birthdays, Librans!

Libra Moon JJ Watt Houston Relief Fund

JJ Watt, Justin James Watt, born March 22, 1989, is an American football defensive end for the Houston Texans of the National Football League (NFL). He is an Aries, but his Moon is in LIBRA! He cares about his people! See his chart (no birthtime)

He established a hurricane relief fund, made the first $100,000 donation on his own, and the money kept pouring in from there. Celebrities of all sorts have been teaming up with big name corporations to keep growing JJ Watts’ fundraiser!

Mr. Charles Butt, CEO and chairman of San Antonio-based H-E-B Grocery Co. donated $5 million! Other big donations include $1,000,000 from Ellen DeGeneres and Walmart. Drake and Miley tossed in an additional $700,000. Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk threw another $1,000,000 into the donation jar. Jimmy Fallon announced the show’s $1 million donation to JJWatt‘s hurricane relief fund, and invited a Houston choir to sing “Lean on Me.” It is hoped international donors will step up as well! His fund has raised over $37M! 

JJ said: We must come together and collectively help rebuild the aspects of our community members lives that were damaged or lost. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever. We are Texans.

As an Aries JJ has become a type of first responder! And he is on the ground delivering the goods. This 28 year old man also has Venus and Mercury in Pisces. He says: Kindness is powerful! And he has just proven it. For you astrologers, him being 28 means he is between his Lunar and Saturn Returns!

Jupiter and Mars in Gemini sextile, an aspect of success and opportunity, his Venus and Sun. He undertook a big move, a generous act. He has connected to people with love in his heart and they have responded.

He is my hero choice for Libra this year. Bless him for his love and leadership.

Libra 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Oct 16 2017 Moon Venus Mars False Dawn
Moon, Mars, Venus! October 16 get up before sunrise to view the moon and the dazzling planet Venus in the eastern morning sky. It should be easy to see the waning crescent moon and Venus because these two worlds rank as the second-brightest and third-brightest celestial luminaries to light the sky, after the sun. Some sharp-sighted sky gazers might even see the moon and Venus after sunrise.

To catch the red planet Mars, however, you’ll probably need to be up before dawn, or 90 minutes (or more) before sunrise. Look for Mars beneath the moon and above Venus.

Autumn mornings free of moonlight present a good time of year to try spotting the zodiacal light – or false dawn – in the Northern Hemisphere. Look for this cone of light to jut upward from the eastern horizon some 120 to 80 minutes before sunrise for the next two weeks.

Thank you, EarthSky!

Libra 2017 Timeline!

The Most Significant 2017 Mercury Retrograde Cycle is completely finished and we are moving on at warp speed! Late August, September brought us so many difficulties – natural and political. Libra’s recovery skills are so needed at this time. A smile means so much these days.

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that have been the primary aspects of 2017! 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 19 days of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to secure 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. REcover after disasters. Grieve fiercely. REalign, REfresh your life, plan for more of what you always wanted, or have come to want, now that old encumbrances are gone. It’s not a time to start over, but to start completely fresh! Jupiter into Scorpio!

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn for the first time in 28/29 years!

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Libra 2017 – Oct 2018!

Libran synchronicity! Above and Beyond! Double grand jeté! 500

Libran synchronicity! Above and Beyond! Double grand jeté! Leap into your New Year!

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

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! Water and earth Pluto and Capricorn can be challenging to air sign Libra. Libra may try to dodge, but Pluto is the tracker and Capricorn holds them all responsible. Being of later signs than Libra, they may feel superior and want Libra to focus as they wish. But Libra has tricks of his own, being an air sign, needing freedom to roam, may vanish thither and yon among the skirts, hats and cloaks of partners in crime! Pluto, unable to capture this beauty, may give up for now, but be ever watchful for an opening. Working together, in agreement, Pluto helps raise Libra to a more powerful level of connection, deeply protective in the process. Every fiber of Libra’s being may be called upon to adjust and learn new protocols. There could be a breakthrough to a substantial payoff – personally and financially.

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 is inconjunct Libra. Could seem to be a wet blanket, rain on Libra’s social event or relationship. Libra is most clever at changing the subject, but Neptune sees through the shield easily. When in tune, Neptune has utmost compassion and Libra feels safe to tell all. Perhaps it has been waiting a long time to be told. Old layers removed, Libra is free to see the potential of dreams. Neptune is perceptive and has insights on how to make them come true. Listen with your Soul. We are rebalancing to a higher level. It’s new, but you are a quick study!

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 maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is 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! it’s opposite Libra, right where you can see it. Those of you with factors at 24 to 29 Libra will find your world spinning! You don’t know whether to jump into the fire or run for your life, LOL! But heck, it’s intriguing and you love seeing exotic new things, people and places! You get intrigued by the cause and find there are potent things you can do right at your fingertips! New allies, new channels, new vantage points. You can still go home, but you won’t be quite the same person!

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. But Uranus is the Earth Shaker and there may be clusters of shakes! Your life may be loosened, askew, a bit out of control. Libra the dancer doesn’t always mind being off track, in discovery of new blends! Both Taurus and Libra share Venus as their ruler. Taurus grows the flowers, Libra places them in the landscape or in a knock out display! Deliberate asymmetry, dissonance, different types of balances, may become a passion. You may be longing for time alone, bored with relationships you are outgrowing. Or you feel lonely as companions go other places. You could find yourself seeking more exotic delightful connections you would never have considered before! Be careful the rogue doesn’t live on your money!

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. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. neptune is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! They are inconjunct Libra. Shifts in direction, adjustments, a more fluid approach, a compassionate stance is called for. You may be curious, but there is also need to be more deeply sensitive to feelings and different needs of others than usual. There is a need to engage as well as observe. Blythe beauty and charm alone are not enough. If one approach doesn’t work, try another angle.

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! During those years, Chiron will be opposite Libra, calling you to action. Libra is pure genius at facing, mirroring their surroundings! They instantly see what’s needed. They will place people in exactly the right places at the right time for effective results! Aries is split second fast and Libra easily keeps up! Aries says give up a bit of the social courtship, just get it done, now! And Libra finds that to be true at times, so picks the best team to do it! They can get a LOT done together!


SATURN
builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through October 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 sextiles Libra. Work and play. Travel and people. Building and lasting Beauty. History and future potential. Lot of nice options here, connections being made. Learning and observing leads to restored faith and this year, especially as applied to recovery from fires, floods, quakes. Ideas for whole new businesses will spring up.

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!

In Capricorn, Saturn squares Libra. Not as much fun. Capricorn wants to work. Better put Libra to work in the Human Resources dept. or setting up social events, the art and graphics dept. or legal and political venues. That doesn’t seem like so much work to them. But don’t tire them out with a bleak slave labor approach. They need light, air, smiles and appreciation to flourish and do their best work. No abuse or you may find yourself on the wrong side of a lawsuit! Sometimes less hours are better, or two different jobs in the same company to keep their interest. Making peace and beauty is their business. Don’t bore them keeping them in a box. Ask their opinions and time to time let them try it out. You may be very pleased with the result. Librans, give an honest measure. Don’t go running off sniffling with your knickers in a twist at the slightest provocation! Stay steady when you are needed. Get a partner to help if possible.

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. Jupiter is considered a lucky planet, abundance, optimism! For many this has been Libran’s lucky year! Sometimes Jupiter lifts you up, you can see plentiful options. New relationships have made a difference. There are times Jupiter is overwhelming and gives you the wander bug when you should really be staying with it. Other times traveling is the best time that ever happened to you! Education is a joy, great instructors. Publish! Truth can be what you have longed for, or you are outed for whatever and it is a disaster, at least at first, but can have miserable consequences too. Planning and redirecting your energy can save the day. Making connections that uplift you can take you places that are even better than you always wished for! Last chances now through Oct 10 to get things in place, secure your foundation relationships.

Jupiter in Scorpio! Libra wants beauty and social relationship. Scorpio wants the relationship to heal you and increase your financial potential. Libran charm is lovely; Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments and answers to lifesaving questions. Libra may act as liaison. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Justice may come for those who have suffered extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery, murdering children and animals. Librans will be activated in courts. They will publish art and novels that exposes atrocity. They will unite in factions for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Journals will reveal darkness. It may be uncomfortable for many Librans, but the ones who have Mercury or Venus in Scorpio will understand and stand up. Be safe. Let Scorpios protect you.

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.

Here’s the Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Librans are Aces at Recovery!

Libra Asymmetrical Balance Stones Recovery

snailz4dreams writes at Samatta Balance saying: “Balance is not about two opposite forces, as one may think. 

Light and dark, day and night.. these are not opposites. They are as much each other as they are not. Life has a way of finding balance, of being both and being neither. What we forget is that there is never good without bad, nor bad without good. We don’t always see the good we do, and we don’t always see the bad we do either. Some seek only the dark, while others seek only the light. For those that need to speak, there are those that will listen, without judgement and with open hearts.” And all things in balance are not necessarily ‘equal.’

Libra is a living sign, always in a state of balancING! If they fall to one side, they recover and get steady again or maybe not! Librans are often smart and beautiful, models, and we expect so much of them because of that, yet they are learning, have growing pains and feelings, ups and downs just like all of us do.

For them they have learned to be nimble, walk the line/tightrope, use a balancing staff. They glide between us and out of tight situations with intent to hurt no one. They see the darkside and know why they aren’t going there or don’t stay long. They dart out of the jaws of captivity. As they go along their life, they introduce us, one to the other, to strengthen our networks. Often their judgement is uncanny – they can be liaisons, astute negotiators, matchmakers, make art that makes us rethink our relationship with our Souls! As one side dips down they get a look at the lowlands, when it rises again they see the process and observe the potential, the peaks! They know it is a natural cycle, and show us how to flow with it too!

That doesn’t mean Librans don’t fight. They are good at it! Some are lawyers, some are peacekeeper police. Many martial arts require superb balance and instantaneous adjustments. Those same skills can save lives and apply to the very breath we take, how much mental attention we apply here or there. Wisdom is a living skill we learn as we go.

Relationships are important to them. Sometimes they are the prosecutor saving us. Sometimes they are the defender taking on great odds in the name of justice! In personal situations, as children, they often grow up helping keep the family peace. In couple relationships they can be the one who concedes. Just because they can do that doesn’t mean they agree, nor does it mean they should. People pleasing has consequences. Be extra intuitive to be sure your Libra is truly happy. Don’t just take their word for it. Really listen and check it out for proof.

On the other hand, be very clear with your Libra. They sense the slightest discrepancies in your demeanor no matter how well hidden you think you have kept your secret. That’s why they are good on their feet in courtrooms. Not good to lie to them. They may not bring it up that day or ever. They may just vanish out of your life one day thinking there are differences that can’t be mended. Trust needs to be on both sides.

Librans are always making beauty. Besides fine art, they grow flowers, design extraordinary gardens, do exceptional commercial displays and interior decor, wear fine clothes and jewelry when possible, are clean and often indulge in amazing scents and fine wines. They strive for fairness and impeccable manners. They are superlative social directors and planners, attending every detail – they are the ones that make your marriage a memorable state occasion! In gratitude, give your love some flowers. If your dear one is a gardener, give them to them in a pot so they can grow more!

Different cultures, ages, faiths, are fascinating! They love anthropology and cultural museums. They see the best in all situations and can coordinate exchanges that make a world of difference literally! Rather than fighting, they look for values each party has to offer and all could prosper from! Librans thrive in international situations! And they can build huge exotic import/export businesses.

Libra Tug of War pulling for the best!

Remember, it may be a tug of war, but they are always fighting the good fight, pulling for the best! Healthy teamwork really makes a difference.

Quick on their feet, they mend many relationships, gather the troops, are so graceful you hardly realize they are working! You feel charmed and grateful when all is said and done. Be sure to acknowledge their wonderful skills and accomplishments. Give them hugs for the tough moments when they saved the day! They are Aces at Recovery!

Recovery comes in many forms. Health, mental health, business, political, social, humanitarian, environmental. Right now,with fires, floods and quakes all at once, we need you more than ever and thank you with all our hearts.

All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus!

 


Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

Thursday Oct 5, at 11:40 AM Pacific, 12 Aries/Libra 43!

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

Full Moon Party at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa! Guests will feast on a three-course meal from Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen on the 5th Floor Oceanfront Terrace before celebrating the night away! Fort Lauderdale, FL 

Happy Harvest Moon! This year the Full Moon nearest the Autumnal Equinox is in October. It is also called the Hunter’s Moon, Travel or Dying Moon. It is end of summer, beginning of Fall. Leaves are ‘falling,’ days are shortening, it’s getting cooler. Gardeners harvest; Hunters gather and process game for winter stores. Now that harvest is done, we are free to travel.

This year, in social Libra, it is a time to gather with loved ones outdoors, eat sweet moon cakes, admire the harvest moon, and celebrate the abundance of life. The full moon is a symbol of prosperity, wholeness, and reunion. Family and friends—no matter where they are in the world—can gaze upon and enjoy the same beautiful moon. No matter what happens, you have each other! If you are in a fire or storm area, please take some time to give thanks with new friends. To those of you who are hurting, maybe alone for now, we send our love always. Bless you and keep you and yours.

Mercury and Sun are together this Libran Full Moon. Mercury is being very aware and thoughtful of others. Communications are vital when there are disasters or political shakeups. A cool head and a lot of heart can bring people together in unusual circumstances. In spite of discomforts and fear, this is a huge opportunity. Unlikely champions will rise. Prejudicial limitations will seem senseless. We just help each other because we need help. Lifelong friendships will be made across all lines.

The Moon, always opposite the Sun at Full Moons, is in Aries, the sign of forthright action, first responders, leaders. The Moon is unconditional love and support and independently gathers the food and distributes it as needed. We are all Family. This support gives rise to a grateful independence, more assertiveness, fights for rights of our own and in behalf of others, especially for children.

Sun/Mercury and Moon are directly tied with Neptune! Mercury and Sun are inconjunct, askew Neptune. Mercury is logic, Neptune is not. Neptune the Dreamier is more soulful and psychic, impressionistic. Mercury talks, writes lyrics, while Neptune listens or makes music to the words. Sun in Libra brings people, maybe artists, to meet Neptune, but he may be away in the Ashram or not available until late in the night. Neptune may be brightened by the visit but glad when he has his solitude again. Moon in Aries is hard pressed to slow down for these things. She may push too much and lose the game, or the others may catch on and see it’s important not to miss out or delay important progress by not keeping up!

Oppositions have an across-the-table quality. There you are, right before me. We may be different, but we can shake hands, discuss our mutual goals, divvy up the work between us. We may do it differently, but together we can get there! Sun lights the way, Moon supports and reflects the Light to others! Teamwork!

Cardinal T Square! They are bringing the Light to bear on Pluto, a planet of darkness, a holder of secrets and healing! In Capricorn, Pluto is in the Moon’s opposite sign. There is a resonance since Moon rules Mothers and Capricorn is Fathers! The challenge is to raise Pluto’s sights from old ways that used to work, were necessary then, to fresh options and new alliances. Sometimes the Healer needs rescuing! On the other hand, Moon, Sun and Mercury may need to pass through Pluto’s cleansing gateway before they may go on. There is a test for both sides. Will Pluto see the Light? Will the upstarts clear themselves with the Master? Likely there will be a little temporary consternation and perhaps a little chaos, but the Cardinal signs rarely forego a good challenge! They have natural inborn jump starters!

The Mutable T Square starts with Mars and Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, they in turn square Saturn in Sagittarius! This one is more long term since Saturn takes until Nov 2 to square Chiron. The Venus/Mars conjunction is really fresh! It just happened at 9:53 AM Pacific, just a couple hours before the Harvest Moon! There are details to consider, reorganization that pays off. Distribution is needed. Mars does what it takes. Venus goes ahead of him advertising the values of the opportunity! Though working independently for the time being, Mars could use some partners for his project, cause. Chiron may be asleep over there in Pisces, but senses the shift and stirs. Something has happened and as a healer, he is curious what Virgo has started. He prefers herbs and natural remedies when possible.

Saturn, having been in Sagittarius for a while now, is more amenable to learning about healthy remedies that increase longevity. Not only is it important what we learn, but how we learn it, what we do with it and when. Virgos test their ideas, the quality is there as they promise. They are expert at hands on training. Chiron sees the value of the body/mind connection as well of those with the Soul. Saturn thinks this is a working tenet, so engages, giving what time and support he can, lending his name.

Sep 27 Jupiter opposed Uranus! People have been having huge differences of principles, ethics. Politically balances of social constructs have been undergoing dramatic change. Natural disasters have forced people from their homes, families have separated to survive, or from the result of new laws. Fires, floods, earthquakes. Fear has occurred on so many levels. Change, evolution is inevitable, but recently it has been high chaos and tumult! So much at once. Jupiter is the planet of magnitude, Uranus is the masses. No one escapes! I’ve written how Libra is a sign of recovery of balance. While Jupiter is still in Libra until Oct 10, use its ability for all its worth. See where it currently is traversing your personal astrology chart and work it! Together, consciously and well focused, we can get a lot done. So many are stepping up to the plate, ie our super hero this month! JJ Watt, only 28 years old, has raised over $37M Harvey Relief Funds!

Also yet to come is Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11 – 11-11! They are currently 5 degrees apart, but closing. Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first Nov 2. First is a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

All the outer planets are involved in our Harvest Moon – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! This Full Moon is linked with long term factors. AND, ALL the Full Moon inner planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – activate all the outer planets! They all spur the outer planets on, and are themselves changed by the encounters. Not one planet is in a Fixed sign, holding things steady. It’s not the time for it. The Cardinal planets get things moving; the Mutable planets make the accommodations to facilitate flow! It’s a grand integration, truly FULL!x

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus! 

Thursday October 19, at 12:12 PM Pacific, 26 Libra 35!

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

This thin crescent is post Sunset just after a New Moon.

This is the first lunar event of Jupiter newly in Scorpio as of ten, ten, Oct 10th! The context is wholly different now. It’s been 11/12 years, since Oct 2006, and all the outer planets have changed signs! Saturn has been through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, now in Sagittarius! Scorpio wants it deep and bonded – for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, ’til death do us part. Lifelong. Jupiter wants vital education for a prosperous future for life to be exceptionally blessed. The stakes are high. When it can, Libra offers the connections needed to enhance the opportunity for it to happen.

Libra is the Sunset time of day. It is the Sign of gathering after the day’s work, sharing what the day brought, planning the next day. It’s a time of equanimity, between day and night, equal at Equinox. We welcome a quieter time of day and year. Days will be shorter and it’s cooler. Some time will be spent in contemplation, creating art that tells our story, makes beauty. We will spend more time indoors together. Rather than scattering for evenings outdoors, we gather indoors for dances, theatre, symphonies, art shows. Being social is natural.

A dark night in Libra can be a most potent meeting of Self and Soul. The Moon relates to her people – forbears and children. The Sun relates to his own heart, his courage, his expression of Light. Together they merge the past with creating a powerful union for the future.

At 26 Libra the New Moon is sextile the Galactic Center, opposite Uranus, the planet of the Heavens! And the New Moon is just past the exact inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher.

Saturn, 23 Sagittarius, is now very near the GC at 26 Sagittarius 59! Saturn will be at the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Again, Saturn will trine Uranus, only 3 degrees apart now, exact eleven eleven, Nov 11! This is the third and last time. As before, Dec 24, 2016 and May 18, 2017, Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work. New careers of deeper meaning will be created and forged. See more!

This aspect is important because Uranus is 26 Aries 31, directly opposite the New Moon and trine the Galactic Center! There is no chance things will stay the same! You might be scared or so excited you can hardly contain yourself, both! Evolution is! Aries is the leader, champion. Uranus and Aries can be solo, or they can be a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Libra has more propriety, but is also a sign of leadership, making connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity! Can’t be done without them. Infusion from the great center of the Galaxy will be potently activating many Souls at this New Moon!

All this will be considered under the auspice of Moon and Sun having inconjunted Chiron in Pisces. Healing insightfully, mindfully, with appropriate timing, with no condescension, is sometimes a delicate achievement. Making your patient, client, student a ‘partner’ in their own healing creates a powerful union.

This aspect helps prepare us for the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron the third time. That is generally not an easy aspect. It may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces with a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it! You can. See more!

Mercury just conjuncted Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time in 11/12 years! What an intense consult! There may have been some awkward moments as we get used to this new energy. Mercury is clever with words, but it’s still a new language. Mercury is rarely overwhelmed, but this time he may have reach for it! Jupiter offers as much as you can take, and Scorpio is famous for extremes!

As with Chiron, Scorpio calls for healing. Jupiter heals and updates our purpose. Mercury heals our mind and communications, thinking and learning skills. What you say, how you say it makes a difference. Jupiter wants the whole Truth. Scorpio may protect what must be protected, but also release important revelations. Mercury’s choice is whether to keep the secret and find a way to bring information to help without letting others know their source or the full story. Or, it may be time to do the journaling and exposé, clean up the mess. Could be a little dangerous. Watch out for compulsions and obsessive mind sets. No verbal abuse – none given, none accepted. No being mean or scornful and self righteously thinking it’s ok because you are ‘right.’ Stay clean. Jupiter has a lot of hope, no matter how ‘dark’ the times may seem. Often things you don’t know about are at work in your behalf. Wait for it. Scorpio is the sign of rising from the dead, the Phoenix from its own ashes! That’s a tough combo to beat. Mercury is good at slipping through the cracks out of harm’s way! Stay with it and don’t give up!

That should be doable with Venus in her own sign Libra watching carefully and treading lightly. She is neighborly semisextile to Mercury. Keep the dance moving, adjust your center as you move. Remember that balance is a living medium, rarely equal or symmetrical. Grace may be more the word. Beauty marks the passage. Kindness shows the way.

Upcoming Saturn aspects make this an important New Moon, as well as this Moon being the first Lunar event in Jupiter in Scorpio! Relationships we make, and how we relate, are critical to our success. Jupiter enjoys Libra – studies, travel, fun! Scorpio is Libra’s astrological neighbor leading the way. Libra supports. In old astrology, Saturn was considered to be exalted, in its best placement in Libra. Libra rules Lawyers, Saturn is the Law! Jupiter is judges! Law is not just what is on the books, but what is in our hearts and the laws of how we treat each other. How we judge, looking for the best in others, keeps us all working for a positive future.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi

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 ~
