Mercury in Cancer Retrograde 2013, with Jupiter!  Lord Ganesha, God of Prosperity!

Hindu elephant deity, Lord Ganesha, Remover of Obstacles, fearlessness, Patron of Letters (Mercury), wisdom, luck!

The day after bold and lucky Jupiter enters Cancer for the first time in 12 years, Mercury in Cancer retrogrades!  It calls on us to rethink our shy Cancerian premises, primarily in favor of growth and expansion.  Confidence is UP!  Much is possible.  Think of it as a time of adventurous exploration.  Welcome reversals as another angle or attitude of vision.  Let prosperity return!

June 10 we started into the first phase of the retrograde cycle.  What we are doing now will be reviewed during the retrograde phase, then completed or polished from July 20 to Aug 3 as we finish the third phase.  This retrograde will span from 13 to 23 degrees of Cancer.  If you have planets or factors from 11 to 25 degrees in your chart, you will be directly activated.  If not, you may be called upon to help others who do, or simply not be affected at all!  As with Jupiter in Cancer, other Cardinal signs, Aries, Libra and Capricorn, will be challenged, while Cancer and other water signs Scorpio and Pisces, and earth signs Taurus and Virgo, will thrive!

Family, your home, feelings, children, may be at the top of your list.  Jupiter will be boosting this retrograde.  It is known to be optimistic, sometimes exaggerate, tell stories, learn and share tons of information.  You may want to promote your school, travel away from home, expand your business territory.  This summer could be filled with more than usual children’s games, family adventures.  Opinions about history, your culture, the women in your matriarchy, you, could be strong, and it’s time to jump up and be heard!  I usually wouldn’t recommend a remodel during a retrograde, and I’m not going to this time either, but it will surely be on many people’s minds!  Better to plan and replan, wait until the retrograde is done.  One of the retrograde rules is to not take on anything more than you could afford to lose or redo, once, twice, maybe three times!  Get a good warranty and return policies if you buy.  Wait on major purchases like autos.  Try to get that job to start later, no matter how much you need it now.  Do what you must.  Move later or figure on moving again.  If you don’t mind that, rent, investigate the area and housing prices, then buy after the retrograde unless you are a pro and know the game.  No big new furniture buys either.

Seeking a relationship is chancy during a retrograde.  Promises, promises, mind changes.  Cancer is a motherly sign, nurturing, often forgiving when it comes to helping the helpless.  Know that if you tend to attract people who need a Mom.  And, bet your booties, they aren’t going to be what they said they are, circumstances change – worst they go back to their ex.  Grrr….  Specially watch where Cancer is in your chart.  If it is on the romance 5th or 7th of marriage, pay attention but do basic business regardless of the siren call.  No big decisions, or just let it go for now.

The good luck is lost household things may return, a person from your past revisits – a true treasure, but maybe not a keeper now either.  Make amends if needed and the opportunity presents in a good way.  Make special time for children.  Blessed be.

The Aries Fire Stellium is OVER.  Now as we enter Taurus, the sign of loyalty and steadfastness, what was new, or did you start, during that Aries stellium, that you would like to continue to have in your life?  What value did you bring in that you are happy to maintain?  I have a new student who is new to astrology, and she is taking in the principles amazingly quickly!  I started sharing some more garden space with another community gardener, and intend to grow crops I will harvest to store for winter food.

Wise old Saturn is holding the fort at his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) from May 18 to July 8, turning direct (forward) June 12.  Those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future.  Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference.  Focus and do your best.  Make yourself proud!

Jupiter is making his last stand in Aries until entering earthy Taurus June 4, starting off a fine Saturday!  That will leave only Uranus in Aries, the lone wolf on its own again, but happily so in a sign of its same spirit, both Uranus and Aries loving freedom and independence!  Jupiter in Aries gives a last chance these 14 days to start what we will, get educated to be encouraged, have confidence, to lead the way, or follow someone we trust well.  It could be more fun than you have ever had before!  Frolicking is good!  Roller skate, hike, ride your bike!  Continue it with Jupiter in Taurus exercise; do the fun kind!  Long horseback rides, mountain walks, walk your dog!  Endurance and strength sports are satisfying.  Long distance and heavy weight.

Jupiter, good luck, fame, huge growth, in attractive Venus ruled Taurus can attract more money than God – they call it a BULL MARKET when the stock market is going UP!  Jupiter in Taurus can keep that money, hordes of it, may travel to the ashram for an extended stay, found a non-profit organic farm, raise horses, buy fine art, start an imported cosmetics franchise, do melting massages at the spa on the train, drive a huge moving truck, give sculpting seminars!  It may get off to a slow start, but once rolling, it just keeps going.  Dedicated, determined, loyal.  Simple, common sense solutions.  Luxurious hair, earthy beauty, natural fabrics, furs.  It looks further ahead than its own two feet, so makes ‘lucky’ choices.  Well grounded, centered, satisfied, peaceful.  Smooth jazz.

Jupiter may, at this time, be even a bit more languid than just the easy-go-flow of Taurus because it is sextile Neptune (only this one time, not the usual 3 times) upon entry into Taurus, makes the exact aspect June 8!  Both are ‘religious’ in that Jupiter rules churches and sets the tenets of faith; Neptune is the Pisces planet, Pisces being the sign of spiritualism, meditation, meeting God on your own terms, often religious diversity.  Jupiter usually calls for adherence to the church’s philosophy, though can be open-minded and take up religious studies.  Pisces, is perhaps more Buddhism oriented, compassionate, yet can believe so passionately as to give one’s life for the cause, a devotee who lives in silence and service in the spiritual abode 24/7.  This aspect offers what works for you, the best of both, in your everyday life.  Jupiter in Taurus loves the armchair more than the airfare.  There better be a good reason to take that trip.  Probably chooses to make oms at home!  Neptune is now in Pisces, its own sign.  It, like Taurus, is usually gentle.  But don’t let this fool you.  Being gentle is one of the greatest powers on earth.  A good teacher can ask clever questions, sneak right up on you and let you think you thought of it yourself!  Feeling and being safe, opens all the gateways for learning.  Your eyes open right up wide with the happiness of the leap – insights, epiphanies, are the order of the day!  Let it be!  Make music!

Robert Pattinson

All Taurus, May 13, 1986, Robert Pattinson, is a Brit, played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Quote: ‘Please don’t give me all my luck now. Make it all stretch. I don’t mind waiting. Make it stretch for 70 years.’ He’s a double Cancer – Moon and Ascendant, with his Taurus Sun sextile lucky and famous Jupiter in Pisces! Venus in Gemini gives a wonderful voice.

One of the beauties of earthy Taurus is they just ARE. No need for explanation or discussion. Just be yourself. That’s peace. Don’t need to please anyone. Dress comfortably. Go barefoot, get next to Mama Nature. Everything has value, fits in its natural niche. Doing what you want to do, what you naturally enjoy makes the most sense. Simple. This heart charm is attractive along with often the beauty of a sweet smile, lovely skin, sumptuous curves or great muscles! Hard work farming and eating well and organic go hand in hand with radiant health. In modern city culture that may translate to an urban garden, yoga, lifting weights. Strength is a Taurus asset, whether it is physical prowess, or the patience and perseverance to build a foundation that serves many, to love daily. Safety and regard are cherished traits that people feel they can trust. Reliability builds that trust. Once a Taurus is inspired to action, completing the job is just about guaranteed.

Beauty is a functional asset. It attracts people to your support as a person. It brings people to your cause. The magnetism of your performance draws people to love what you and they are doing so much that they must take care of themselves as well, to continue doing what is so good. Beauty is anywhere from your unique style of action, your endearing idiosyncrasies, your funny smile, exotic voice, to what our culture deems a fine physique, lovely body!  Think on what attracts you to things, to people? Is it emotional security, something that reminds you of a beautiful time in your life, exquisite music, a lovely place in nature, similarity to a loved one? What can you do to make yourself more attractive, more YOU?!  That’s all it takes. YOU are ultimate. When we are exactly that, Peace IS.

Now for some odd Taurus stats from Security Gripes:

• Murderers convicted is 11.4% lower than average (that’s a good thing)
• Burglary with convictions is 13.1% above the national level (Tauruses love to own things!  Sometimes kleptos. :)  )
• Military leaders of the world is 23.2% higher than any other sign (who would have thought?!)

No statistics on this one, but they are usually great huggers!!!

Wishing you a Magical Yule, Winter Solstice!

Magic is afoot!  This Winter Solstice moment, 3:39 PM Pacific, is preceded by the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 0:13 AM! 

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse VISIBLE just after midnight on the US westcoast – are you going to stay up to see it and wish the new year in?!  Many Earth Religion peoples will be doing just that!  Rain is forecast for some areas, but celebrate as you will – meditation, hot chocolate and a fire….  The Eclipse will be at 29 Gemini 21 with the Sun opposite in Sagittarius, an axis of mind and purpose.  How we think, what we think, what we pay attention to, how we gather information, how we express it, all affect outcome!  How we are able to learn limits or expands our range of effectiveness and sharing with others.  Without enough information and exchange of ideas, right on down the line, everyone loses.  If our attention wanders, we lose connection.  People feel that loss and wonder about your or their self esteem.  Our style of idea gathering taints or tantalizes, making people not or want to share with us again.  Our sharing style chokes the network, or invites joy and excitement of exchange!  You see?  And this is only the Gemini side of the Eclipse!

Sagittarius needs to know, so much, to have a fully informed, broad perspective, to choose the Living Truth, that changes as we grow!  Faith can be a fickle feature, because she too is a living thing!  Faith doesn’t just happen.  Faith is experienced, a product of a history of good choices, some your own, some of the people you trust.  Good choices may not make you wealthy, but they are true to you and your heart and Soul.  How you stand with you matters.  Without all the information, one makes choices that are short of the mark, never quite satisfying because something always feels awry, can’t quite put your finger on it.  So put those Geminis, or the Gemini part of yourself, to work.  Listen to them intently, help them focus where you need the info.  If it doesn’t feel like you have enough yet to make your decisions, send them out to bird dog more!  Then make wise choices for the Path you are traveling, the message you choose to publish.  Be continually wise, change when the input changes.  Expansion and growth are a powerful postures of a fully living Sagittarian!  It seems like luck, but forever the scanning observer in their far reaching adventures, it’s their kind of brilliance that saves them!

Yule, Winter Solstice is a grand time to snuggle, but keep your eyes wide open for the possibilities that grow from the root dark in Winter’s Night.  Many a profound insight springs from the eternal internal, a mere candle flicker only glimpsed, sometimes during a whimper.  We might be sad, we might feel like steel, but it comes.  The underworld has always been well respected, often feared, a testing place of Spirit, yet we come back more powerful, even if only quietly.  Power may be barking or whispering, yet it works.  This year, as since 2008, Pluto is near the 0 Capricorn Winter Solstice degree.  Pluto is the God of the Underworld, so this life and death, sharing and healing planet makes it all the more meaningful.  As many are suffering from financial losses, a time of sharing and creative healing springs, as the serpents on the Physician’s staff of Life, raising the Phoenix from its own ashes!   The Sun is always there, it’s just short days.  It may seem thinner, the light laid low across our skies, but still, it is there.  Never been anything wrong with slowing down, resting, noticing more of what is between the molecules.

The last degrees of a sign are always endings and beginnings.  The Eclipse is at 29 degrees, the last, and Solstice is 0 degrees, the first.  May your endings end well and beginnings be even better!  I wish you peaceful days.  I pray you take time to tell your love, appreciate the special in others, what’s good in you.  Happy Yule, Winter Solstice – Mama Earth’s New Year, and Eclipse!

Winter Solstice Day, Dec 21, I will post an overview of 2011!  There is much to come!

Sneak Preview! On April 29th through May 1st, 2011, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus, 6 planets, will all be ON FIRE in Aries!  Unbelievable passion, magic of Spirit!  Your Mother is impatient, your pen is pissed and potent, your Lover is sweet HOT, careful not to run the red light, exercise is a no-brainer, the mighty Truth stands on its hind legs and bites, change is electrifying and defying, a challenge to be alone together!!!!
