Happy Birthdays, Aries!

Meet Ricardo Breceda, Sorcerer of Sheet Metal!

Aries-Mars Ricardo Breceda Metal Sculptor Borrego

This story is about an artist born in 1962 in Durango, Mexico, no birthdate available. But I’m sure he is Aries something and/or has a strong Mars, the Aries planet, in his birth chart!

Dubbed “the Picasso of Steel,” Ricardo Breceda was an injured construction worker and a boot salesman, but became a renowned artist in ten short years with no previous art training or even an interest in art!

People are awestruck by the beauty and scale of his work, and the way his animals seem so real, the way he fashions sheet metal into muscle and bone, the way he captures motion. One writer says: Breceda believes in motion. He’s almost always in motion. One of those fast-metabolism guys who need to be moving. He’s been that way his whole life. Breceda believes in the can-do attitude. He refuses to set himself limits.”

His dedication is apparent in this story about him by Gordon Lee Johnson!

It’s 116 degrees under the desert sun, so hot even the Borrego Springs horned toads are hunting shade.

But there’s no shade for metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda who’s welding sheet-metal scales onto a 350-foot sea monster.

White-hot sparks pop and blister from molten metal. So much sweat rolls into his eyes, he can hardly see through the welding helmet’s visor. The sun is hot, the metal is hot, the arc welder is hot, the helmet is hot, his clothes are hot.

It’s July, he’s been sweltering for almost three months on this sea monster. “All I can think is — let’s finish this thing,” he says.

Lost in the fever of work, his working delirium is broken by a young man who is yelling at him to stop, and holding out a bottle of water.

“He actually got in my face, and yelled at me to stop. I didn’t want to stop, I wanted to keep going. But I’m glad I stopped. That guy may have saved my life.”

Breceda knocked off, drank lots of water, and regained himself after a few hours, cooling off to continue.

A couple of days later, he finally finished. “Let me tell you, a beer never tasted so good.”

Ricardo has won prizes, there is much written about him. He says “I work hard to get a piece to look alive, to give it a soul.

You can see this amazing work at Galleta Meadows Estates in Borrego Springs California.

ARIES 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy April 10 2017 Full Moon Jupiter Spica

April 7  Jupiter at Opposition. The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter’s cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.

April 10, 2017, see diagram – presents the first full moon of spring for the Northern Hemisphere and the first full moon of autumn for the Southern Hemisphere. The first full moon of the season shines in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

Jupiter stays in front of the constellation Virgo until November 2017.

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

Aries 2017 TimeLine!

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

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The next of the set is the March 30 Jupiter square Pluto! See more 

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before. See more

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries 2017-April 2018!

Aries Heady RED Hat!

It’s time to surge into your New Year! May there be many grand new accomplishments!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Aries is FRESH, a sign of the times, even of times to come! Give them the job, they will lead, but get outta their way. They may experiment here and there, taking a bit more time, but the offshoot ideas will be well worth it! Pay attention and capitalize! Aries, be smart and realize the worth of the experience of elders and practiced business men, even if it does remind you of your Father! You may be denied at first, feel blocked, but you can and will do it! If things are too musty, move on and do it on your own, taking the good ideas and sensible guidance with you. You remain independent because it’s your choice to do so!

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 12 and 15 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Aries, it will be the surf of a lifetime! it will be your unpredictable but fascinating neighbor you get glimpses of. There will be curiosity, caution and irresistible inspiration! Pisces insights about you may be tailor made, so really listen though at times it sounds like they are speaking in tongues. Their troubles may call you to rescue them. That may go well, but if it goes on and on, you may inadvertently be enabling. Walk away, maybe check in time to time. Plant your seeds where there will be potent results.

Uranus covers 23 to 29 Aries, brings us to the brink of the sign change into Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they are not forgotten. Change worthy ideas need to be highlighted so they are not taken for granted.

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! It takes a lot to make an Aries head spin, and this is exactly what’s happening! At last, a friend who is grateful and keeps feeding you the most outrageous data, inventing daily! It’s their turn to keep up, and that’s rare! Sparks fly and everyone marvels! It’s like Love at first sight, and it works! It may not always be easy, each are quite independent and used to having their own way, but the ideas are bigger than they are separately, so get to work and have an uncommonly good time!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 24 Pisces to 0 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 the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation and impresses Aries with its immediate insights, whether in love or business, body or mind! When it 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!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Aries to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point. Aries is willing to go if it suits his purpose right now. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Aries loves a new cause and believes Saturn to be a good backer, so will go along. Sag can lead and teach. Aries wants more than words, let’s make doing it part of the teaching! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Aries is satisfied, and like Sag, is ready to move on.

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

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that 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 or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Aries loves the perfect fresh challenge of new beginnings, especially independent new beginnings! Thresholds were meant to be leapt across! Capricorn may get tired just watching, and they are hard workers themselves. But things get done. Capricorn needs to watch to be sure things are per specs. Aries may get grumpy it there is smothering supervision. Need to talk this out. If Aries is experienced, give them a free hand. The love department may have delays or hit a dry spell for awhile. Give your body plenty of rest, take time out. Cappies make you think you have to prove yourself, and you do, but there are limits too!

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

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

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aries finds that exhilarating, plus meeting new people, seeing new places! Negotiate personal time while Libra is with other friends so they won’t feel lonesome while you gone. Be back when you say you will be or they will worry. They are ever etiquette minded, and you will learn some good skills that bring several excellent opportunities your way! They will broaden your horizons as they survey the entire territory while you may be focused on one facet of it. But your focus may be perfect for getting one thing done at a time while they are contemplating. Social situations may cause you to gain a little weight. Dance it away!

Jupiter in Scorpio is not exactly an Aries comfort zone. The Underground dimension may visit you, requiring a deeper look at you, your intentions. Seductive, lucrative financial offers may need you to sacrifice temporarily. Things are not completely straightforward, yet certain revelations may compel you to take a chance. You have picked yourself up before and done even better than before. You can do it again if necessary. Or maybe you are older now and feeling less willing just because it’s an intriguing challenge. Unlike usual you may find yourself seeking tried and true advice. The timeframe involved is longer than your usual venue. It may be worth it, or the tunnel cramps your style, you just want it to be over, get back to your stand up mode. An oblique alliance may be formed that you use as a wild card in the future. Stay clean.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition or makes it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships – loving or leaving.

Happy Birthdays, Aries! Wishing you a #1 Year!


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Aries ACTivation!

Aries Sea Serpent Head Ricardo Breceda Metal Borrego

A fire made treasure, that’s our Aries! Ricardo Breceda’s Sea Serpent. This is just the head. The rest of it undulates through the desert sand along behind… Gordon Johnson Photo

If you have never been there before it is INitiation! If you have been there, but inactive, perhaps forgotten, you may need ACTivation! If that’s all going for you, then it may be time for you to be the lead Activator!

Purity is high grade energy, has absolute integrity! Aries rarely calculates or is conniving. They function immediately on auto response, accurately filling the immediate need. It’s a White Diamond Light function. Mind you, they aren’t saints, well, not usually, ’cause they are impatient if you can’t or don’t do the same. It’s no fun if you don’t keep up, LOL!

Red is their other color! They are red-blooded heroes and heroines, love those red trucks, and white cars! Racing in any form, is a passion! To them it is not a gamble, they are just so fast they don’t even think about it. Gets them in trouble sometimes. Other times we are so glad they made it, came to help when they did!

They love the challenge of a catching a good partner. They are adoring fans, roses, new places to go together. But they can leave once the challenge is over. They need a match to their continued high energy, needs to be physical. Biking, hiking, skiing, skating. Speeding somewhere together at the front of the pack suits their Spirits! If you like your sex a bit quick, anywhere anytime, fiery and red hot, you have found your lover!

Being their own boss, having their own hours and business, is perfect for self motivators like them! They may start with nothing and build an empire! A Job that has dramatically different challenges, not routine, works. Aries is innovative, loves being the first to try something new. Meeting new people, possible co investors, delights them. They are terrific sales people. They know what you need before you do! Knives, swords, guns, fighting hold fascination. They have the courage to lead even if it might mean their own death. You will find them at the front working with fire!

Classrooms are a tough assignment. It’s a closed space. Boring to look at, always the same for a time frame as fast as Aries. Assign them to keep it changing. Have different instructors. Blow off the energy on top by riding your bike to work or school! Put in plenty of sports, dance classes before sit down classes. Sitting drives them crazy. Let them stand? Do walking meditations! They will thrive on anything that involves heroes and builds independence. For many the independence of riding their bike makes it their vehicle of choice. Science and mechanics, how things work, especially cars, race cars, will do the trick!

Lean blondes or redheads. Dashing and dazzling demeanor. Fresh. Naive and innocent. Radiant health. They exercise, are generally not readers or TV watchers, don’t sit long enough to eat much. But they can have accidents – cuts, head/eye injuries, road rash, punctures, and headaches and burnouts from too much exercise! They like a clean body machine and aren’t inclined to meds or addictions, unless it’s to or for exercise. Oh, and btw, headgear is primal for Aries! It keeps their mind happy!

Fiery crafts jump start their day! Whether it is creating a mechanical toy for their kids, building a new vehicle, exotic enhancing fuels, making expensive jewelry, glass blowing, cheffing that fine steak or burger, retiring to metal sculpting recycled leavings! It engages their whole being. It’s gotta work, amaze people, and you gotta stay alive while you are doing it! Iron matches their blood and copper is their tone!

Many would disagree with me, but I think of Aries as the Crown Chakra energy center of the body. It’s that White Diamond Light you see on some Chakra diagrams. Their perception of incoming information, connecting with the higher realms, must be clean and clear to quickly save lives when it is an emergency, or to not miss a potent opening, that one moment that could make a difference for the rest of your life! Robin DiPasquale, ND RH (AHG) says ‘The energy of the crown chakra is about opening to the heavens through the crown of the head, connecting with the electrical forces of the universe, and allowing these to flow through the body to join with the magnetic forces of the earth energy in the heart.’

Pink is that blend of White Light and the Red Blood of the Heart of Life. There’s nothing Aries wouldn’t do for you if they could. Most of all, they would like you to be strong. To be able to stand on your own two feet. They want you to try. They will take you places you have never seen before. They ignite your curiosity, show you what’s possible. They scatter seeds with the spark of life wherever they go. They have relentless passion for the Spirit of Life!

Bright White Light, Red Hot Flame, Pink for Pure Love…they love for love itself.

Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

Switchbacks at Utah’s Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, Walter’s Wiggles! If we are going to do two retrogrades in a row, and overlapping – both at once for a week, whether descending or ascending, we might as well do it elegantly in great Beauty!

March 20 Note: Venus has been retrograde since March 4. Mercury starts Rx during Aries, April 9. Venus goes direct April 15. The DOUBLE RX is April 9 to 15!

For your advance planning ~~~ trips, moves, weddings, significant purchases, remodels, elective surgeries, investments, taxes, job changes or reviews. Venus involves your love life, money and values, art and beauty. Mercury typically has to do with signing papers, snafus of all sorts, appointments, mind changes, reversals, breakdowns, electronic failures. Retrogrades have three parts. First is the time the planet goes forward. Next is the retrograde period when it goes back over that same ground. Third is when it turns Direct, forward, and goes over the same ground the third time. Often, having a change of direction, extra work to accommodate the changes, delays, drives us crazy. Given time, from the different vantage points, and as other planets move along, we see the values in these adjustments. Without switchbacks or retrogrades, sometimes we might never reach higher ground had these events not have happened. New vantage points show us how to incorporate new facets in our lives.

Venus Retrograde

Venus sweetens from 13 Aries 8 back to 28 Pisces 54! The whole three part cycle starts Jan 30, finishes May 18 with Venus Rx Mar 4 to 15.

Venus does make beauty and kindness, money and love. Retrogrades make changes, omits, misunderstandings, mistakes, adjustments.

Venus in Pisces dreams, commiserates and blesses, is music, magic and miracles, lives for the beauty of Soul. Your understandings, beliefs and desires will shift, can even take 180 different positions and return back to your original position even wiser! The idea is to flow with the tide, rise and fall with the swells of life. Be as whole as you can, make Magic as your insights and visions carry you forward. Pisces can be a gentle sign, or the deluge of a tsunami! If things come too fast it could be scary confusion, feeling lost. Lay back on sugar and carbs. Avoid overindulging in social drugs, alcohol; arrange to have a trusted friend to see you safely home. Water sports and businesses, especially related to the ocean, can make significant changes, select new teachers.

Venus in Aries wants what it wants, now, and takes the action needed to get it! They love being first, prize being leaders, are quick super athletes, are great dancers, put in stunning performances! During the Rx you may find your style changing as to how you do these things! The warning is not to overdo it, be careful not to hurt your head or eyes. Sweet hot sex if you’re lucky! But have that sex with your established partner. Many don’t recommend first time sex during Venus Rxs. There is a quality of rebellion and you could get in trouble with dares. You may not get away with it this time, so please be careful, and try not to break the law in front of the officer!

Aries is often impetuous, but most astrologers would not pick anytime during Venus (love and marriage) Retrograde to get married, elope. Only if the compatibility charts were exceptional, both parties have exceptional progression and transit aspects at that time, and the marriage chart is chosen for the best aspects it can have that also are in splendid harmony with both birth charts. Otherwise, some unions are karmic and will be as they are.

Mercury Double Retrograde!

DURING Venus Retrograde, Mercury starts its Rx cycle, and part of its Retrograde time is during the Venus Rx time! So we have a double Rx April 9 to 15! This is a wee bit of a complicated time with two overlapping cycles and Venus and Mercury each changing signs as well. Mercury will move through 24 Aries 15 to 4 Taurus 50. Mercury is Rx April 9 to May 3.  It makes sense to see your astrologer for details about how this activates your personal chart.

At the time of the double Rx, Venus will be in Pisces, Mercury in Taurus. The degrees are not close, so they will be operating independently of each other. That means in two different houses of your personal chart, possibly even four houses, will be activated. They may act together for you depending on the personal linkage of your planets.

Mercury in Aries is quick to see what’s happening, often distracted, maybe jumps to conclusions, or it’s all in your head. Its speed can save lives, tilt the world in a new direction, blitz by old hurdles! It can be impatient, angry, get down to head butting! Get going or get outta my way, but mainly it just wants to do things! It is a leader that inspires confidence! New projects may finally be undertaken, or fail because they are ahead of their time, there are more considerations than realized. Plant your seeds then plant more seeds! Caution signing papers, even if an expert advises it. This is likely not the time to be impetuous. If you are never impetuous, maybe you should give it a try! Do your best.

In Aries it is very likely not the time to do electional face surgery, elope, buy a new car or mechanical items. If you can wait, fix the furnace or air conditioner later. Be careful about head bumps, your brain/skull, eyes. Put in fire alarms well before the retrograde.

Mercury in Taurus takes its time, maybe too much time, but is the most stable of these four combinations. Sometimes it resists change and is thrown off by shifts in routine. Yet, if Taurus has become tired without realizing, changes may be just what the Dr ordered! Your land may change, your garden, your flowers, trees – earthy things. Taurus is your neck, throat and thyroid. If there are any questions, have a checkup in advance, especially if singing or entertainment is important to you. In general, Taurus is ownership and a solid untouchable bank account, but what we want may surprisingly change during this Rx. A generous gift may be expected and you might have a dilemma about what, how much, or whether to give.

If you make investments, do only test amounts during both retrogrades because Venus (money) is Taurus’s planet. Your thinking about what is attractive can easily change. Not a time to buy a new wardrobe, furnish your home, do a remodel or buy a comfortable car. Whatever you buy, get receipts, buy from well standing companies with excellent return policies, get the warranty. If you sign papers include a review clause so it can be changed, canceled or extended within a reasonable time. You set the time for your next job review time.

Mercury stations with Uranus April 27 to May 9! Super intelligence, a friend returns and leaves again.

Plan what you can, the Creator will do the rest. Good luck and Grace be with you.

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron
New Moon, First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron!
Monday February 22, 10:20 AM Pacific at 3 Virgo 34

Pisces Earth Moon Gaia Josephine Wall Prayer Surrender Gratitude Grace
Magical Beauty by Josephine Wall, birthdate unknown – May 1947

Pisces and Virgo are ever in humble grace and gratitude. Dreams and details run through their minds, Spirit sees their wholeness. There is a holy union of being on this Earth and being guided by greater Beings. True, there are times we feel bereft, forsaken, that things are impossible, but often there are also so many unexpected kindnesses and blessings. Full Moon miracles open our hearts to the immense possibilities our our consciousness.

Jupiter in Virgo, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries have been traveling together since 2015 and will continue to through 2017! See more about this magical mix! The triangle is tied together by the Pisces Full Moon and the March 8 Solar Eclipse!

The Virgo/Pisces Full Snow Moon is the day before the second Jupiter opposite Chiron.

The Pisces New Moon, first Solar Eclipse of 2016, is two days after the second Jupiter inconjunct Uranus.

The Full Moon Sun and Moon are conjunct and opposition Neptune, and they, the North and South nodes, and the Jupiter opposition Chiron all span the Virgo/Pisces axis! There are three ways to benefit from these so very different, yet similar signs! Virgo is earthy and the Cosmic Gardener. Pisces is the Visionary making it meaningful, the Garden of Life. Both want to improve our conditions, Virgo our daily health, Pisces our immortal Soul! Virgo will work overtime again and again, will save your life with herbs and nursing, or improve your helpful business. Pisces is noted or giving their lives to a cause, being a Savior! Virgo helps with the techniques and technical, while Pisces puts on the show of a lifetime illustrating the sheer brilliance of Being, a Star!

Neptune IS the planet of Pisces! With the Sun in Pisces coming to it, there is a communion with one’s higher Self in person! They have an annual meeting, conjunction, but not often at a Full Moon! There may be a symbolic coming into acknowledgement, acceptance, understanding of the glory of heart of Pisces. There may be a surrender of ego to an immersion into the sea of all souls. Aquarius distinguishes the unity of friend to friend; Pisces sees no boundary ~ we ARE all ONE. Compassion is a strength gained by ‘seeing’ the sorrows, fears, fearlessness and abiding joys of another. We can walk together in understanding.

Fixed Star Fomalhaut is at 3 Pisces 52, with the Sun. It is the eye of the Southern Fish, one of the four Royal Stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars. Fomalhaut represents archangel Gabriel. Winter Solstice is its time. Creativity, musical talent, and idealism are important qualities. It is said when we are aligned with our Soul purpose things go well, if corrupt, downfall is on the way. Take a look at what Marina Macario has to say.

At the other side is the Moon in Virgo running around tending everything! The table of celebration is in order, the food and wine precisely and healthily selected, the room lighting adjusted, and whatever is needed is keenly and kindly processed. She Moon is incredibly supportive. Workers are carefully chosen, pets are kept happy. Pisces doesn’t always realize the full extent of the efforts or give appreciation, but Virgo is practical and knows why it is important the meeting goes well. Pisces often glides on the intuition of the connections of Souls. However, when Virgo is in trouble, Pisces can see the cause within, helping with the root rather than the meds. We all have our gifts.

11:59 AM Pacific, one minute to noon, Jupiter makes its second exact opposition with Chiron Feb 23 the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! The gateway has been open and polished. In the evening, the Moon moves forward to conjunct Jupiter at 6:44 PM Pacific, opposes Chiron at 6:50 PM Pacific! Moon carries the Full Moon energy to the opposition. She pampers yet demands quality performance.

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

Chiron was a bad boy Centaur in the early days, and in Pisces can become invisible, sharing some traits with Jupiter. If dedicated as the superb healer it can be, you better do your part if you have to crawl to get there! So much can be learned. In Pisces the wisdom applies to matters of the fluids in our bodies, the natural tidal flow of our consciousness. Pisces the Sensitive is an empath, compassionate psychic. Moon brings her feelings to the recipe. Sometimes it’s not funny at all, and you know the glower is well deserved. Other times you gotta laugh, it’s life, perfect and imperfect as always!

Jupiter is retrograding back to trine Pluto March 16, an aspect not to miss! Pay attention to the date! Get any grant applications IN, chat up potential sponsors, donors. Ask for monies owed. Look for secure ways to invest with trusted partners. See if your company can work for other large companies rather than one small job at a time. This is also a healing time. Virgo has trustworthy remedies. Capricorn wisely seeks council of experienced professionals. Jupiter is hips/thighs, Virgo small intestines. Pluto is guts and sexual organs, Capricorn bones, teeth, skin. Let go of obsessive behaviors, let new healing strategies work on a steady basis, working systemically, until it becomes a habit.

Jupiter next squares Saturn in a powerful 1, 2 connection from Feb 20 to June 15, just under a 4 month period! Either Jupiter amplifies Saturn’s doubts or depressions, or cheers Saturn up and they easily surpass previous goals! Saturn may have been dutifully trudging, but Jupiter in Virgo has new terrifically sensible ideas right down to the details that cheer Saturn up. If Jupiter trine Pluto got funding as hoped, Jupiter square Saturn applies it where most needed and that money may vanish before you believe it. Hopefully that will bring peace of mind. There may be additional expenses or things cost more than anticipated, so be frugal for now. At any rate, plans are made and work will be done to mend issues. Or, work may come to a standstill temporarily as assessments are made, proper materials selected, strengthening reinforced, and further funding sought. Sometimes a rest is a blessing.

Saturn in Sagittarius is in close square with Chiron and trine Uranus, but retrogrades before either aspect is made. With Uranus it is a near miss, not quite making the connection as hoped. Keep the info to try again later. Due to Saturn’s retrograde, the exact trine isn’t made until Dec 24! Until then, keep courting. With Chiron it’s a close call. What scares us almost happens, definitely a warning to be heeded. Take care of your business, education and health if this aspect affects your chart. If it looks like advancements may be denied, do what is needed to bring your resume up to par, take care of any obstacles before they take root.Uranus and Pluto are still thundering along closely, sometimes scaring the wits out of us, other times inspiring us to race far beyond the finish with our arms outflung for the sheer exhilaration of it all! Stunted, stunned or crazy with adventure or all of the above! Whatever it is, who would have expected that!?!? From old to young, it’s kinda like Bernie and the young vote! Research is going at top speed. Electronics are verbing! Beasts and monsters are being seen for their surprising values all over the world. Animals are being treated more humanely, new laws made. Cruel wrongdoers are publicly called out by society at large for their obscene behavior, not getting away with local injustices. The Internet is doing its job so we see what’s really behind what’s going on. Let Freedom ring! 

To Peace and Power for the Long Term Good for All

New Moon – First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!
Tuesday Mar 8 at 5:54 PM Pacific – 18 Pisces 56

Pisces 2016 Solar Eclipse New Moon Northern Lights

The Northern Lights and part of the Milky Way on a moonless night in Kolgrafarfjordur fjord in Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Western Iceland. http://www.arctic-images.com/ljosid/ 

Like a rainbow at night, the New Moon lets the stars of the Milky Way shimmer their energy to us. It’s quiet.

Solar Eclipse Pisces Stellium! Five factors are in Pisces! That’s five ways to look at Pisces, connect with them, them with you! That’s five ways for Pisces to send and receive.

Mercury is with Neptune, the Pisces planet! Mercury is thinking, communications, logic, but in Pisces it surrenders to a more ephemeral conduit, the conduit itself changing by what it perceives! Nothing about it is static. It believes what it sees as it sees it. It doesn’t always remember the past, even five minutes ago, and it may not matter that is does. Everything is real in the moment, 100% up to date! Logic is diffused as myriads of ideas and whims flit by. It is absorptive, and the accumulation of all the ideas makes things whole and evolutionary! To others this may appear as confusion or lies, depending on which moment you are there, then later get a whole set of different answers. Just know that your friend is ever changing. It’s a kind of intelligence.

Moon and Sun are together! Perhaps in Pisces they are merged as they can ever be. Pisces often doesn’t discuss, they feel, and feel is a small word for the experience. It’s way more than twins. There is no difference, not even a blur. Moon is absorbed by Sun, Moon is more than stealthy. She simply becomes one with Sun. Without his knowing, she reads his every nuance, entirety of Spirit, connotation of Being. Caring is surrendered. Ego is surrendered. They simply are.

The Moon was with Jupiter in the opposition Chiron the day after our previous Full Snow Moon, Lunar Eclipse. Now it has circled to the opposite side with Chiron, caught up with Sun, is just barely past the opposition with Jupiter, semi sextile Uranus, all four at 18 degrees!

Moon and Sun with Chiron put Sun and Moonlight, Moon’s caring and compassion, into places we fear will never heal. As they merge with Chiron, there is a frisson, a knowing what needs doing. It’s personal. As a healer, your core ability will be updated. You may not understand it immediately, but it will spread through your workaday being, with more revealed in the Dreamtime. It may be subtle, but oh, how profound. Trust your Spirit. Relationships will shift to a new understanding, some to be rightfully abandoned, completed, others to be more musical, deeply in accord.

The Eclipse and Chiron are in a T Square with Jupiter opposite and Saturn square. The Sun square Saturn was all the previous week and the dust is settling, but the Moon made the square only two days ago, not quite letting us forget. Sun or Moon square Saturn usually isn’t so fun. We need to face what shames us. It doesn’t matter if others tell us we are great. We know what we hide. Keeping that in mind, do the things that make the change. The wonderful semi sextile with Uranus in Aries helps us find or work with friends or groups that encourage us to get on our own two feet!

Shortly, March 23, Jupiter Rx will square Saturn exactly! We are already in the sequence, it finishes June 15. Saturn is having more fun than usual in Sagittarius, and Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! It can be disconcerting to be pestered to fun when you just like doing your ordained work and have been such a good person, LOL. But let it loose a bit and what doesn’t fall away, will be a valued and enjoyable part of the new program. Probably will take a bit of getting used to. Expand your production a bit and see if the computer results back up your hopes. If not, check for alternative methods until you get the right combination. On a completely different note, for those of you that are getting older, think of your long term plans, retirement. Square things up so it will be comfortable. Virgo and Saturn are earthy, common sense, practical. They will help you let go of old outmoded ideas, make wise choices now!

Nov 5 Jupiter was inconjunct Uranus, the ChangeMaker! We were pulled a wee bit off course, only to discover it was the perfect move! Off to the side was a bright surprise that awakened or reawakened something unique in us, a talent that hadn’t risen yet or has lain dormant for awhile. This aspect was exact again two days before the New Moon, March 6. It again nudged a gateway open, an obstacle aside, this time to allow the deep Soul connection of the New Moon in Pisces. They are unavoidably at the same degrees! Opposites both separate and call each other’s names. Separation indicates a culmination, the capacity for difference and tolerance. It gives space to see how the other fits in the world, lets us breathe and be who we are on our own. We may split off, continuing on separate ways, but ever having been influenced by the ones we leave behind who helped or hindered. In some respects, separation inevitably becomes closer as the planets continue along their circle. That handshake across the table or across the chasm of cultural difference, ages, gender, sexual preferences, opens us to sharing the best each has to offer, to learn about why other people make the choices they do.

This inconjunct and Uranus semi sextile the Eclipse calls for adjustment, more awareness. Friends make a difference. Whether we change or not makes a difference. Do we choose to act alone, take the point? Or do we find other Souls to align with and multiply our powers across the community, the world? It may be time to allow difference and embrace new standards. It’s time to acknowledge the essence, start a new plan, organize and stick to it!

Uranus square Pluto Though not in exact aspect, they may as well be because of their duration, how closely they are traveling, especially if they affect your personal chart! Uranus was born to upset the old sacred archetypes. Ever more so being in Aries, the rights fighter, leader, rebellious! The more they use the genius ahead of its time, the deeper Pluto in Capricorn digs in, protecting deeply entrenched systems. Clash of the Titans effect, definitely some casualties. Ironically, Pluto loves a good plunge into clean up and recycle jobs and betrays the combination of Capricorn’s lock. So when it’s open, let a few experts take a look, see what to keep and save, what to let go of. Good luck.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are making an equidistant ‘ASTERISM,’ pattern. At both ends of the purple line across the top of the chart, see there are red lines and blue lines. The reds are the squares, the blue are the trines! Equidistant patterns have a peculiarly potent power exchange, especially when all the degrees are so close! Uranus and Jupiter are at 18, as is the New Moon Eclipse! Saturn is at 16, Pluto at 17, Chiron at 20. That’s 7 factors within 4 degrees of each other. Squares are intended to be both breakaways and builders. Trines smooth out the rough spots. The purple line, an inconjunct, helps us consider adjustments that make a difference to the outcome.

March 16, only 8 days after our New Moon, Jupiter trine Pluto, part of the asterism, is exact the second time! This is a wonderfully profitable aspect when used well, if in good connection with your personal chart! There are possibilities of a tremendous healing, the most meaningful travels of a lifetime. Secrets will come out, often in a good way. See more!

Saturn trine Uranus also in the asterism, is close, very close, but retrogrades at 16 degrees. There are whispers, hints and hopes, but the exact aspect won’t happen until months away on Christmas Eve! Consider the potential of long term professional alliances, associations. Court them, put it on your calendar to connect in collaboration mid November, December.

Endings and beginnings are natural! As the Moon comes to the Sun, a cycle is ending, maturity, accomplishment. Take credit. The Moon is given a Sunburst infusion in the nature of the Sign they are in. We don’t think of Pisces as so radiant a sign, more likely retiring, but we can hear the songs and see the lights of a large concert for miles around! Many Pisceans are magical musicians, chameleon actors that imprint our Souls, superb performers from tender to crescendo in the limelight! They run huge oceanic ventures of all kinds, in charge of the lives of many others! They need a terrific energy charge to wield these enterprises. Please open your arms wide this Eclipse and let that straight shot pierce your defenses, cleanse and brighten your every molecule!

Blessed be, make it so.

This Eclipse will be visible primarily in Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi and from locations in the Pacific ocean.

Pisces Henrik Lundqvist Hockey HeroMar 2, 1982 Pisces Henrik Lundqvist, is the amazing Swedish ice (frozen water, Pisces a water sign) hockey All-Star goalie for the New York Rangers. He has many record performances including being the only goaltender in NHL history to record 30 wins in each of his first six seasons. His dominating play during his rookie season resulted in the New York media and Rangers fans giving him the nickname “King Henrik”. During the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, he led the Swedish men’s team to their second Olympic gold medal!

He is known for his sensational quickness, Mercury trine Mars, athleticism, Jupiter trine Sun (also fame), and strong positional play, Mars in Libra conjunct Saturn and Pluto! See his Astrological Chart!

2009, Garden of Dreams (Pisces) Foundation named Henrik as its spokesperson. He serves as the face of Garden of Dreams, hosts children at Rangers games, conducts special events such as skating parties at the Madison Square Garden Training Center, and participates in public service messages.

Garden of Dreams Foundation works closely with all areas of The Madison Square Garden Company, including the New York Knicks, Rangers, Liberty, MSG Media, MSG Entertainment and Fuse to make dreams come true for kids facing obstacles. Their events and venues have brightened the lives of thousands of special children and their families who battle everything from homelessness and extreme poverty, to illness, to foster care.

Lundqvist said “Community outreach is very important to me and I am excited about this new role which I hope will focus more attention on the efforts being made to bring joy and one-of-a-kind memories to so many children facing enormous hardships. I am also looking forward to spending time with the children I have met through Garden of Dreams.” Bless him. He’s a hero.

Pisces 2015 Highlights!  

Pisces is the last of 5 signs that opened with a NEW MOON, all at ZERO degrees! It’s holiday crazy! President’s Day was the 16th, Mardi Gras the 17th, Ash Wednesday today, tomorrow is CHINESE NEW YEAR of the Sheep/Goat! 

We are in the midst of the potent four planet pattern, Jupiter inconjunct Pluto and Chiron YOD while super trine Uranus, which is happening both before and after the Uranus square Pluto culmination, in continuous connection throughout! The day before, and during Pisces, there is an unprecedented series of FIVE outer planet aspects!

Saturn is now in Sagittarius until it retrogrades back into Scorpio June 14. We are still in the first pass of Saturn square Neptune until April 18.

The last day of the since 2010 Uranus square Pluto is 26 days and counting! Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015! It will literally take years to integrate the happenings of these last years. Stay steady in the Light.

Pisces Symphony, Spiritual Union 

Pisces Woman Spirit Dancer

From an Irish violin on the lonely moors, to a knock-your-socks-off rock concert, to a symphony and ballet, all share a union of Soul with Spirit. Whether mourning or celebrating, we express ourselves sometimes mute, sometimes with the music of our words, sometimes mute filled with the rapture of Being. We can be hidden in the mountains or center stage at the Met, soaking up revelations, imbibing the ecstasy of the Universe!

Sacrifice is common practice to accomplish talent and divine intricate attunement. One must slough all expectations and be purely oneself, in core accordance. One must shed worldly time and wholly respond to divine rhythm and harmony pure in every moment. There is a symbolic blindness as one lets go of common sight and sees what weaves more deeply through our hearts.

Woundedness inspires kindness. Suffering requires our caring to restore each other to a productive life. The enormity of tragedy calls us to explore means of prevention. Spiritual mortality, though invisible, is such a loss that we mourn. We implore our Guides, the great Masters, anyone, to intervene, to rekindle the spark.

Supreme sensitivity is born from these encounters with chaos. We learn that not knowing, being open, is a way of knowing. We can be safe with no framework at all. We are still ourselves when the lights are out, when we are injured, lose loved ones, meditate. We can still be true when we have fame, and even when we merge with others! This extraordinary sensitivity saves us from the fatality of stupidity. It makes us late or to turn left avoiding the accident ahead or to meet someone we didn’t expect while shopping. We often know when someone just can’t be trusted, not because they are necessarily a bad person but that they are just not able to stay true perhaps.

Piscean sensitivity, psychicness, allows the Symphony, the Union of Spirit! It is a living Miracle. We connect with each other over time, often taking years of preparation, sometimes living in the same towns, going to the same schools, until we finally meet at another place, far, far away. We connect with each other across thousands of miles, often feeling times of despair or urgency and making that call right when needed. We ‘dream’ each other in the DreamTime, and things come true.

Sure, we all have Pisces in our astrology charts and this applies to that area, especially when there are transits, planets activating it. But a Pisces lives this every day, more sensitive to noises, discordance, cruelty, often disliking crowds. It is shown in different ways, shyness, self medicating (booze/drugs/food), seeming to be lost, chronic complaining with no doing. Some are broken spirited, have given up and possibly no longer capable. Treatment is complex and varied. Be gentle as you can. It just about takes a Pisces to heal a Pisces.

If the Pisces you know is the renowned leader of a cause, is saving the World, join up! Watch them use their sensitivity to get all the help they can to serve more people! I, for one, am so grateful to them for being able to step beyond their past, become the Spiritual Union in a good way!

Actually, every moment we are all in potent Union, for better, for worse. We live IN each other. We ARE all One. Leave no one behind.

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong xi fa cai!

Year of the Yin Blue/Green Wood Sheep/Goat!

Himalayan Blue Sheep in Tibet

This beauty is a Himalayan Blue Sheep, Pseudois nayaur, in Tibet! Strong, no fear, yes, shy.
 
We have options! White sheep, black sheep, Himalayan Blue Sheep, lamb, ram, sheared flocks, or high mountain plenty wild! And some prefer it to be the year of the Goat!!!

The Year of the Blue/Green Wood Sheep starts Feb 19 the day after the Pisces New Moon, at 5:14 am PST, February 18, 2015 to February 7, 2016. Thought to correlate with Western sign Cancer, Sheep are considered to be nurturers, can be emotional, loyal, need security, sometimes pessimistic, definitely artistic! The other animal is the goat! Now that turns the tables! They jump on it, climb the heights, chew whatever they find, and usually live, though there may be tummy troubles now and again. Sheep are shy, and how do you get a goat to stand still?! They have secrets, apparently, for one reason or another, so clearly, trust is important. Take your time with them. Let them BE themselves. They love their families, keep the peace, and due to previous kindnesses, people help them when they are in need. Sweet.

Wood years activate publishing, newspaper, clothing and timber industries, and there is heated competition. Wood stands for springtime, the East, the planet Jupiter, the colors blue and green, wind, and the Azure Dragon (Qing Long) in Four Symbols. Wood people have high morals, great confidence. They know the intrinsic value of things, usually appreciate all they have. They like diversity and to diversify. Renewal and growth are important! Wood people are hardworking loyal friends, often artists at what they do.

Odd years are Yin years. Wood can be too conciliatory, so soft Yin can add to that. Sometimes they take on more than makes sense, and are spendthrifts. They need to learn their limits, avoid areas with prevailing strong winds.

2015 Year of the Sheep starts powerfully! The New Moon Chart has a SIX planet Pisces Stellium, the Moon and Sun at ZERO degrees Pisces, with Mars at 29 degrees Pisces, the LAST degree of the zodiac! See the Chart and about it!

Here’s to a loving and prosperous New Year!

You can bet Jan 17, 1964 Capricorn First Lady Michelle Obama is a strong part of Obama’s successful presidency and reelection! She’s an inspiration to all women, children, her People. Uh, it’s said, if you want something done, write to her, not the President!

Capricorn, First Lady Michelle Obama

Michelle is strong, artistic, intelligent, a lawyer by trade! She has a warm Spirit, loves kids and gardens. Her 2012 book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America is based on her experiences with the garden and promotes healthy eating. Her call for action on healthy eating has been echoed by the United States Department of Defense, which has been facing an ever expanding problem of recruit obesity. She’s an advocate for poverty awareness, strongly supports women’s rights, and military families, helping working women balance career and family, encouraging national service, and promoting the arts and arts education. Fabulous that she gave a keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and also spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Did I mention she has great courage?

Capricorn, First Sign into the Next 26,000 Years!

I have great respect for that Capricorns are leading our way, the first sign, into the next 26,000 years! They are third of the three earth signs, a culminating sign of honor, at the top of the natural zodiacal wheel, with ability to achieve maximum potential! As Builders, they work hard with the law and order of science, to make a safe place for us. The recent Newtown CT massacre puts Gun Control right in their sights. As adepts, Magicians, it will take all their skills to bring a working consensus. Emotionalism is not one of their trademarks, yet they will have to deal with frightened people on both sides of the issue.

Facing reality squarely is one of Capricorn’s fortes. From that acknowledgment, the foundation of change is established, further time wasting floundering is over. You can move on exactly from your center. You know your challenge. Information and education is natural next. Informed choices, some trial and error, get it into practice. Setting reasonable boundaries will guard progress until sufficiently established to stand on our own, adjust to changes without falling, or losses due to negative seduction and side trips. Straight ahead.

Timing is one of Capricorn’s great tools. They know how to wait if they have to. Having priorities right between your eyes, however, making potent choices every step of the way, compounds your speed in a good way, gets you there at prime velocity! You just have to get used to all the success! Success is another talent of Capricorn. It’s a new way to live. Doing it well takes some adjusting. Most of us are used to living in the barrel. How to come out into the Light really does take effort and hanging onto yourself so you don’t self-sabotage and go running back. Breathe. Stand still. Absorb it, learn how it feels. Your new friends will be happy for you, glad to help. You can do it. You already got this far.

Your part in the Uranus Aries/Pluto Capricorn Square through Mar 2015: Pluto is in your sign. It’s on a 248 year cycle, so very few people have Pluto in their sign in a lifetime. Pluto can take all your money, your life, your mate, or it can empower you to wealth, clean healthy living, with a super partner! It is the Planet of cleaning and clearing. Let go of the Past, learn from it, move on, one step at a time if necessary. If there are obstructions, help them come down, see the way to wiggle through, get the key to the door. Pluto rules sex in marriage, intimacy, deep bonding. If your Capricorn planet or area of your chart is a little rigid and cold, relax, let Pluto’s molten lava warm you from your core. Pluto rules sharing, but Capricorn can be money poor, frightened, grinchy, hanging on to every dime, denying, joyless, contracting to loneliness and, eventually, poor health. Bust it loose, corporate mergers do hugely better. Do a franchise! Invest a bit at a time. Learn from others, your mistakes, but do it!

Uranus in Aries will not be standing quietly aside taking it all in. Nope. It’s the tree shaker, pants on fire! Surprising options can surface. Tweaks and zaps change parameters instantly. It’s more impatient than you have ever known, but, let’s not be staid and compound the old errors! Make some new ones and clean up the mess! At least it’s enlivening and maybe even a little entertaining! Change and awakening gets your blood going! Uranus rules groups or loners, and Aries is independent. There’s also a slight war going on – who’s it gonna be? Me, you, or them, or all of us together?! Shall I do it myself, or get the computer warmed up for some of that social networking? Prolly gonna be some new ways to use that computer too.

Mayan Calendar Alignment Portal! Log your intentions, long term plans. Focus on your potent choices of action. Schedule check ins to see how you are doing. Revise, renew, stay true! Think big, we got a long way to go!

Star Watcher’s Alert!  March 13, Beautiful annual Venus conjunct Jupiter in the evening sky!
———————————————————————————————————–

Trines are fine, sextiles some think are better, Grand Sextiles are vundebar!  Trines have all the same elements, unless they are at the cusps and slip across the margin.  Then they get a tad more interesting, a little spice with the dumplings!  Sextiles are mixed but harmonious elements, some thinking that adds more opportunity to the mix, more active.  Grand Sextiles complete the whole circuit.  And they aren’t so common, often occurring only briefly when the Moon, or Ascendant, slips into position making the circuit complete.  They have a Gemini flavor since sextiles are 60 degrees apart, starting with Gemini, 60 degrees from the first sign, Aries.  They can be only two kinds, fire and air, or earth and water.  This one is earth and water – common sense flowing, mud squishing between your toes, watering your garden, sewers and drainage, a working intuition, keeping our ocean clean, resting at the spa.  Lots of choices.

• March 6  5 Planet Earth Grand Trine, Moon Virgo! As the Moon enters Virgo 7:27 PM Pacific, it trines Venus and Jupiter in Taurus, and Pluto in Capricorn! Jupiter and Pluto are in turn trine Mars! By connections, we have a 5 planet trine! Love and beauty, play, and perfection all rolled into one! Mars says let’s do it!

• March 7 About 4 AM the Moon comes into close range of Mars, gives the Earth Trine some spike! The Moon activates Mars all day, making the conjunction in the afternoon at 3:28 PM. Definitely time for new projects, especially ones that involve physical action or courage and leadership.

• March 11 12:45 AM to 1:02 PM Pacific, we have a brief potent rare window formed by the Cancer Ascendant, that makes an amazing 4 Planet Earth Grand Trine/GRAND SEXTILE! Opportunities abound for Earth and Water people, with planets or factors from 0 to 10 degrees, involving Earth and Water ventures! The Moon is in Scorpio sextiling its ruler Pluto in Capricorn, an opportunity of emotion and power, intuitive healing. The Cancer Ascendant sextiles the Venus/Jupiter conjunction. It senses financial possibilities, loves people from afar, is willing to learn, a lot!

We are only one day off from the 3rd and final Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the 12th 9:31 PM Pacific! (Please see above.) Yes, Mercury is impatient at Station in Aries, retrograde the 12th/next day also, so be sure you want what you want, what’s up, because it may stay that way for some time. Because Mercury is camping next to unstable Uranus, what may stay is instability, but I can guarantee you won’t be bored and there could be incomparable returns!

• Mar 13   4 Planet Earth Grand Trine ALL PLANETS at 9 degrees! Chiron makes it a Kite! The 13th and 14th are a summary couple of days of an awesome set! This is the fat max of the Trines! That’s the day Venus exactly trines Pluto, and conjuncts Jupiter, trining Mars early AM the 14th! The 14th, Mars exactly trines Jupiter, then Pluto! If you love it, go for it, but, remember, Mercury is retrograde, so no surprise if you don’t land where you expect!

• Mar 15   5 Planet Earth Grand Trine, Moon Scorpio! Jupiter, Mars, and Pluto are still at 9 degrees, but the trine is fading as Venus leaves the nines. Missy Moon joins in, so if you forgot anything, take care of it now! She means business joining Pluto in Capricorn, and probably throws Pluto off his stride for a bit, though it will likely be interesting to see what comes to (moon)light! The 9th degree is still key. 12:40 to 12:55 PM is the potent window.

NOTE: Chart times and dates given above are calculated for Santa Barbara CA, so if you are in a different location, we need to make adjustments to fit your zone and latitude. Also, it’s important to see how this all fits with your chart. I have reported the trines and sextiles to you, but the charts also include difficult aspects. The red lines in the chart below indicate challenges. If you don’t do astrology yourself, get some professional help to select your personal timing choices!

Here is the March 11 EARTH/WATER GRAND SEXTILE CHART! See all those green lines connecting? It’s also called a Grand Hexagon, or Star of David! It only happens that time of day in this time zone/Santa Barbara latitude. It will be a different time in your zone/latitude.

Feb 3 Neptune into its own sign Pisces for 13 years until March 2025. Neptune takes 168 years to orbit, so only those of us living now get to experience the potency of this magic!  Neptune and Chiron have been traveling together since 2008.  Chiron is about two times as fast as Neptune, so now will be moving on, leaving Neptune behind, though both will be in Pisces for the next six+ years.

Neptune first entered Pisces back on April 4, 2011, jump started by the amazing Aries Stellium!  See the chart!  It retrograded back into Aquarius, finishing up support group matters, realigning finances, now Neptune is on his way, no going back!

Don’t ever think of Neptune, or its sign Pisces, as a lack luster planet or sign!  They quiver with life!  Ocean water is their element, and it takes power to meet power, or you die.  Intuition is prime.  The ability to morph, act, make music, transform themselves and others, is beyond words.  It takes strength to know when to retreat, to rest, be in recovery, to do it.  It is work to meditate, to live spiritual tenets, keep faith when the world is falling.

It’s from life generated in your own personal primordial tide pool, to gliding the silvery sails of Spirit!  It’s living  in colonies with your brethren, touching, close as sea anemones on a rock, bunks in ships at sea, monks in a monastery.  It is swimming at exquisite depth, total immersion, prayer/meditation, 100% tuned in, safely alert to danger, transformation possible!  Being swept away tsunami style, or still at the moment of tide’s turn, highs and lows, advance and retreat.  Sleep and dreams, daydreams, waking visions.  There is a terrific amount of involvement – fishing industries, boatyards and watercraft sales, ocean sports, retreats and spas, cruises – floating cities, ocean’s edge tourist towns with parties, music, drink, theatre.  Other places, some beaches, islands, are remote, untouched, one can be alone, time stands still, suspended.  Imagination is set free, visions accessed.  Some come gradually with each cleansing of life’s tide; some come whole in complete understanding, an insight, the Gate is open, the Threshold crossed.  Mythically, there are Mermaids and Magicians.  There are whole skies full of stars at night with no land in sight; you can hear the sound of your own thinking.  Close your eyes………

Each of us, in turn, will be touched, as Neptune goes through the degrees, one time activating one planet, then another, until it does them all.  What we call the Mutable signs, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, will be activated most strongly, perhaps confusion at first, but stirring  new options.  Fellow water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, may take things in stride, flowing with advantages that may have seemed hidden.  Leo and Libra will be nudged and niggled, peripherally, but perhaps too busy socially to pay the attention it may be worth.  Capricorn and Taurus, could do some good business incorporating Piscean talent and products, events.
