Virgo Shamanic Healer Traditional Smoking Ceremony Saturn Square Chiron

An Aboriginal man performs a traditional “smoking” ceremony as the Asian Cup trophy is carried to the Sydney Opera House for the official draw.  

Late September, this Saturn square was showing up, already in effect at the Sep 19 New Moon. The Nov 2 exact aspect is the day before the Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Full Moon Nov 3. It’s like Saturn hammers the forces into place, if he can get them in his grip. Then the Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, to reveal the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!

Saturn square Chiron has run concurrently with the Jupiter set of four that started late October 2016. It is now the next to the last aspect of the entire set. The very last one is Saturn trine Uranus 11.11.17!

Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. Saturn nails them shut for later consideration, or splits them apart to be reassembled with better materials for a finer fit. Small firewood burns faster. Smaller healing steps can be wise, more easily dealt with in difficult situations. Start where you can, adjust as you go.

The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. Sometimes neither party is willing, or able, to make changes, rebuild. Too tired, weak, overburdened, survival priorities may take precedence. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend marriages at this time unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can wait and do so much better? Though the aspect is activating 24 Sag/Pisces 47, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, it still would be part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

For some people, the square will actually activate their charts well. The aspect itself will present challenge, but you will deal with it comfortably. If it doesn’t aspect your chart at all, it’s just a go by, hardly noticed.

If it is in difficult conditions with your chart…. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows down healing, 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, you may make a breakthrough and make a 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. Make what you’ve got the best it can be.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions. Working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready to anticipated difficult questions. Leave stressful situations if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

This aspect is particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. The Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus has been traveling concurrently with Saturn square Chiron. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!   

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax deductible donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

Shortly after our Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, Nov 11 the entire 2016-17 set finishes with Saturn trine Uranus! This aspect starts a series of only positive aspects through Nov 1, 2018!!!! That’s a go ahead!

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries - World Friendships!

Unique friendships across the world…

6.20.17 Note: As of Summer Solstice we are still in progress with Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. The last aspect is July 4! This aspect is the prominent outer planet connection in the Cancer New Faery SuperMoon June 23 and Full Moon July 8. The July 4 aspect is the first of the last of six aspects that started late 2016, retrograded and repeated 2017. They will all be going forward/direct, and finish, one by one, now through Nov 11.

4.19.17 Notes: These four aspects closed 2016, repeat two more times, are now the main aspects of 2017. They finish Nov 11, 2017. Eleven, eleven! Currently the closest aspect in progress is the April 30 Saturn square Chiron. See #3 below. Next is Saturn trine Uranus May 18, at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER! See #1 below please. For its May 17 companion aspect see Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. These aspects are all strongly tied with the Taurus time New & Full Moons.

x
2016 opened with a second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. Jupiter inconjuncted Uranus two times. Jupiter in LIBRA reverses the aspects, opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! It started opposite the first of 3 times the day after Christmas. Holiday differences of opinions, broad exchanges of information were very likely. 2015, 16, 17 have been and will be linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. See more! In addition, SATURN starts aspecting these two planets as well, Christmas Eve and on the Dec 28 NEW MOON.

These aspects are part of what I’m calling the Holiday Four at the end of 2016! Saturn and Jupiter are alternating. The first two aspects are to Uranus, the second two are to Chiron. All four aspects are different, strongly activating factors in our charts from 18 to 23 degrees.

  1. Christmas Eve, Dec 24 Saturn trine Uranus, 20 degrees. May 18, 2017 retrograde at 26 Sagittarius. Third and last Nov 11 at 25 Sag! Saturn goes into Capricorn Sep 2017. Uranus goes into Taurus May 2018. Saturn retrogrades back to an almost exact trine Uranus. Uranus goes into Gemini eight years later, April 2026. Saturn catches up to make the conjunction June of 2032! It will be 16 years before we have another exact aspect of these two.
  2. Dec 26 Jupiter opposition Uranus, 20 degrees. Mar 2, 2017 at 22 Libra. Last Sep 27 at 27 Libra.
  3. Dec 28 Saturn square Chiron, 21 degrees. NEW MOON 10:53 PM Pacific. Jupiter sextile Saturn closest Dec 28/29. April 30, 2017 second Saturn square Chiron 27 Sag. Third and last Nov 2 at 24 Sag.
  4. Dec 31, last day of the year, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, 21 degrees. The year finishes with aspects to Chiron. Second inconjunct was Feb 14, 2017 at 23 Libra.. Last is Sep 23 at 26 Libra.

1. Saturn and Uranus rule neighboring signs earthy conservative Capricorn, and far, far out electric air sign Aquarius! Short and tall! Saturn is the lawmaker, Aquarius the lawbreaker! Saturn says if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Aquarius takes the clock apart and puts it back together, figuring out a new way to make it better. Saturn, the builder scientist, is so steady, determined. Uranus is infinitely unpredictable, thinks out of the box, researches and invents! Saturn puts up the framing, Uranus installs the electrical system. A trine is usually a harmonious link, so businessman Saturn and banker/bartender Uranus do find common ground – buy the bar or bank, right?! And they can be surprisingly great friends! Off to the patent office, then into production! Futurist Uranus, ahead of his times, chats it up with Saturn in farseeing Sagittarius. Together they get insight how to make things work for current everyday use. Saturn happily follows right along.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries brings a calming, a reasonable sense of responsibility, yet is still spunky in fire signs! Sag and Aries love their independence, so Saturn ordains and protects the function of much needed fast getaways to restore the spirit. There is more leeway with working hours, less hovering to see things get done ‘properly,’ more creativity encouraged! Working with friends is super, same general goals, things get done quickly. Uranus in Aries does split second mid air research that saves time, points amazing directions, is invaluable in making this project stand out above others of the past! Flying consultants in, brainstorming, making new working friendships and alliances is just fun! Have your gifts ready! The company party will be in good taste and spectacular with the computerized light show! Don’t forget to invite your Father’s friend and take lots of px for Facebook!

The May 18 second/retrograde trine Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy, the Sun of our Sun! It is considered to be a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Uranus was the God of the Heavens, rules the stars, in other words, is our galactic planet! Saturn, the planet of reality, simply makes the channel clear for clean transmission and reception!

The last trine with Uranus, Nov 11, eleven eleven seventeen, is the first of the amazing continuous positive string of aspects late 2017 through Nov 1 2018! Do it well; get a good start!

2. Jupiter in social Libra livens up in opposition with Uranus in Aries in the dark of winter. There are choices to be made, who to hang with, go together or stay out of it, independent. There may be separations from friends, and I don’t just mean holiday travels. Letting go has its merits. Meeting new potential partners, business and pleasure, is likely. Negotiating across the table can be done with regard, giving equality, accepting the ways of others, integrating the gifts all bring.

Jupiter opposite Uranus can bring a shocking or super exciting event. Be cautious about flights. Get the insurance, choose an airline with high safety standards and a good track record. Be careful in general. Don’t stray from your group. World events often happen a week or so preceding the date, Dec 26, up to 2 or 3 days following. As much as New Moons are thought to be quiet, they can be a time of intense focus. even loneliness. If leaving your holiday family gathering, you may not be as alert as you think things over, miss them. Keep tabs on your surroundings and the people with you.

This is a significant aspect because it emphasizes matters of the challenging Uranus square Pluto. It is a reminder of happenings since 2010 that remain with us, many taking years to work through. That square returns to a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind. During that time Jupiter also squares Pluto. That configuration will bring actively challenging Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. March 7, 22-23 and 28 (NEW MOON Mar 27) will be particularly potent as Jupiter closes on its second square with Pluto exact March 30 at 19 Libra. See more

3. WARNING. Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend holiday marriages this year unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can do so much better? Classically three of the Holiday Four aspects are difficult and none are traditional marriage aspects. Though the Holiday Four are activating 18 to 22 degrees, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, they are still part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions, working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a holiday break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Holidays are often a tough time. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready. Leave if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

4. Jupiter inconjunct Chiron spreads the healing. 

Those of you trained that inconjuncts are bad, have only half the info! For many years I just about shivered when I saw them coming. Divorce was likely because partners were distracted, sidetracked – read stepped out. Uncomfortable things were avoided/ignored, daily things untended added up, causing more stress. Debt was often as finances were neglected, divorce caused extra expenses to both parties. Death was even part of the scenario. People just up and left the planet, lost contact, often unexpectedly estranged, though if you looked way back, you could have seen the signs. In many ways, it all seemed out of our control. Astrologers didn’t use the 150 degree aspect very much when I first started astrology, thinking it was hard to see in a chart, and to this day, it isn’t listed in many astrological calendars, even the Jim Maynard calendars! The other word for it was even weird, quincunx. Time to turn the tables.

Here’s the other half. Rather than bungling through or not at all, be proactive. It’s there, an open link, use it! Jupiter is adept at sizing up potential, eager to check out the sidelines. Detours are often more interesting than the daily ride. With Jupiter in Libra there surely needs to be some reassessments over there! Proactively offer your peacekeeping legal services, coaching expertise, the grace of your ideas and insights. Talk about what you see – both sides, leave no stone, weak spot, unturned. Chiron was a wise Centaur, so ask your questions, commiserate and consolidate! Put ignorance behind you. Whether you go back to the main road, or keep on going on this one, your knowledge is enhanced, good to spread it out as far and wide as possible! Your network expands into a whole new quadrant! You are not alone on this quest. Others will be traveling it as well and you can share what you reap at the crossroads.

[5.] In addition to the above four aspects, there is an almost, very, very close Jupiter sextile Saturn riding along with them. Jupiter and Saturn come closest Dec 28 (Capricorn New MOON) and 29! This, a positive aspect, may also bring up sadness, but deals well with it. See more

These Holiday Four are the first of three aspects each. They end 2016, and are active two more times each in 2017 also. Do your best to do them well. Get them off to a good start; the best results are yet to come!

May your New Year be well blessed.

Jupiter in Libra Travel Wedding Gown Plane Blue
Traveling with your Wedding Dress?! ~ Call the airline ahead of time….

August 24 Note: ONLY 16 days of Virgo left. Organize, Tone up your skills, get things done, clean up, heal your mind and body, be ready to relate! Jupiter goes through the signs every 12 years, so this is it for Virgo, Libra to begin shortly!

This Sign change, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, occur between two VIRGO eclipses! Sep 1 Solar ECLIPSE, New Moon is first, then the Sep 16 Lunar ECLIPSE, Full Harvest Moon! All this is during the Virgo Mercury Retrograde Aug 30 to Sep 21! The Jupiter Sign change is followed by the Sep 22 Sun’s sign change into Libra, Fall Equinox! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter, then at 2 Libra 49, a very lucky combination! And Mars will be conjunct the Galactic Center, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Virgo‘s exceptional craftsmanship has attracted the notice of Libra’s who appreciate the finest art! In Libra, a worthy long term partnership may be formed. Quality is a gift in itself, and may assure the intrinsic value of the gift offered. Jupiter may have worked long and traveled far to arrive at this special time and meet YOU!

Jupiter is known to be casual, a seasoned traveler able to do well with the useful minimum. In Virgo we may have had budgets, healers and horses. Libra will bring well groomed poodles and spending some of that money! Libra enjoys sociality and elegance, from tux at the ballet to exquisite gowns at the symphony. The fine art gallery or the local art show are on their agenda. Jupiter loves a good story, so invite them to play the part to maximize the benefits! This combination makes for fundraising like you had only dreamed of!

Jupiter is playful, so expect some jokes and joviality, maybe a few bets, along the sidelines. Maybe that is just the icebreaker needed, a little friendly competition to start the juices flowing. There will likely be a faux pas once in awhile, but usually they are forgiven. We are all human. They meant well, and surprisingly things work out great!

Libra is so courteous and tactful. Jupiter is no fool, so can see the value in establishing well balanced relationships with respect and kindly words. With Jupiter’s confidence and friendliness with people from many lands, and Libra’s cross cultural camaraderie at the table, they are a hit and the sale is made, the contract negotiated fairly, a long term alliance celebrated!

Jupiter has many interests, some of them foreign. In Libra, expect to see the world. Jupiter loves to teach; Libra can gather the Souls, anthropology in action. Jupiter can publish; Libra finesses the script perfectly. Jupiter is the Judge; Libra loves the Law and makes great lawyers. Jupiter has perspective, integrity and super Faith and helps Libra hold the line and stick with the long term meaningful decision. Libra helps Jupiter see both sides before leaping to assumptions! They are a good team.

Libra is good at team sports and peaceful competition. Baseball, relays, synchronized. Dance, ballet, Tai chi, balance. Jupiter enjoys games, being robust, racing, skiing, skating, horseback riding. Make it all an art. Show that big doggie, fine horse! Try some figure skating! Do good things for your figure! Eat less, eat well.

Jupiter is a daytime planet and Libra a daytime but Sunset sign. They love a starlit night with candles and a lovely long view of the Milky Way to keep Jupiter’s happiness. Wish upon a star. If they do things they both love together, a relationship can be formed. Otherwise, this may be a ‘it was fun to have met you’ affair. But you will change. It was memorable and still special. You Libras got more courage and Jupiterians more grace.

Venus is Libra’s planet, so many couples will be in the marrying mood! Businesses associated with marriage and travel will thrive! Yet, Jupiter, the wanderer, isn’t always an easy catch. If not the marrying type, or not ready, they vanish or just don’t show up. If things go well for your relationship, Jupiter IS THE luckiest planet of all! Jupiter in Libra marriages may be truly and exponentially blessed! You two together will be more successful in Love and Business than you ever were separately on your own. If you are already married, get a great special date and time from your astrologer to renew your vows and make it even better! Be sure to check with your astrologer for

  • Basic lasting real compatibility – no maybes or ‘potentially.’
  • Chose a beautiful astrological wedding date and time on that day for happy stability, love and prosperity!
  • Check both your astrolocalities for the most lovely and successful place for your marriage, honeymoon, and where to settle and have your children.

DANCE in Beauty forever and ever.

Jupiter into LIBRA 2016 Astrology Chart

Sep 9, as Jupiter makes the sign change into LIBRA, Jupiter stands alone, in no close degrees to any  other chart factors. It is free to act, or unconnected, yet Libra is a sign of relationships.

In time it stands with the last exact Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, the day after the sign change! That aspect has brought sadness, breakdowns, endings, losses. The square has been strong and close to 10 Sagittarius from April 13 to Oct 31. Paris, Orlando, many floods. At the same time, it has shown us the great needs, many have forgiveness, great kindnesses have been shown, and determination to rebuild and change shows amazing resilience though having suffered greatly.

Mercury is RETROGRADE at 24 Virgo, headed back to 14 Virgo 49. We must rethink many things to find better ways. In Virgo it is new health practices in our lives, business systems, financial management, cleaning up our homes and environment, giving our pets better care. It’s paying attention to when people need our help yet not depleting ourselves in the process. Virgo is a sensible mutable Earth sign, born to make these adjustments with the least fuss. Get your rest, hug your family and carry on.

Mercury is retrograding to opposition Chiron and inconjunct Uranus. This is important because Mercury is keeping the energy of their recent aspects in our mind and the reverse aspects of their previous sets start in December and carry through 2017! See More!

Sun in Virgo is in square with Moon and Mars in Sagittarius. Could be some impatience in the wind, grumpy rumblings. Work versus running away, responsibility versus independence now! Again, mutable signs, so look for the good, make the adjustments, and keep moving. You can clean up messes and fine tune later! Get what you can done, take some time outs for fun!

Venus, Libra’s planet has sextiled Saturn, happily made the job more productive, restored some broken relationships, let others go on their way in their own style. Perhaps an almost marriage. Venus has inconjuncted Neptune, wondering why the wandering, yet has caught glimpses of unmendable broken hearts, dreams that could come true, Spirit that leads us. Libra, an air sign, is the ever so logical lawyer, but sometimes the balance of heart and matter leads to a creative solution that pleases the kindred Soul of all. Venus wants what she wants, but you can’t own people. Her ultimate grace and kindness wins the day.

She will stand trial square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules Scorpio the sign after Libra. Libra prepares the relationships for the deeper dealings of Scorpio, intimacy, financially, death and rebirth, detoxing and healing. Serious matters. Venus can be frivolous with fru frus, cosmetics, flowers, clothes & jewelry. She loves the elite musics and entertainment, ballet, plays. Capricorn brings her up short and says we need to pay the rent and think of possible needs for savings for a rainy day, and fix the roof, you know. Sigh. Ok, so a bit of both? She will pale and die if there are no pretties at all. And Cap can get too gruffy and stuffy for his own good. Grab him and take him out to play! Just might like it after all! :)

Don’t expect to make an easy love match with this square. It will either take time, there are family, financial or career or educational setbacks, a broken engagement, age is an issue. Sometimes it is wiser to let go and find happiness elsewhere another time. It may seem bleak at this time, but is worth the wait. Remember, these aspects will be in different formations with each of your different charts. Check with a couple astrologers to see and confirm your specific personal timing.

Moon and Mars are trine Uranus, so there are some unexpected, yet not surprising either, opportunities soon ahead. Time to try out new adventures! Get outdoors, try a new sport, a new gym! New friends, a different new group is likely to invite you!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017! When the Sun goes into Libra this year, it will conjunct Jupiter at 2 Libra 49! That is a lucky combination, so Libras will get off to a great start and Fall Equinox will be glorious!

Happy Jupiter in Libra to you all! Happy travels, great learning, bountiful relationships!

SCOTUS Gay Marriage US Legal Couple
HISTORIC! Many thought it would never happen in our lifetime, but it did! I like The Guardian’s title: Anthony Kennedy: how one man’s evolution legalized marriage for millions [The Guardian was a 2014 Pulitzer Prize Public Service award winner].

See that pretty big blue solid line triangle in the astrology chart below?! That’s what’s doing the job! Venus is LOVE and blessings, the pink one. Jupiter, the orange one next to it maximizes those blessings, gives faith and hope for future planning, major LUCK along with plenty of fame! They are in the 12th section of the chart, the place of dreams come true. They are both in lucky harmony with Uranus, the purple planet, the planet of ‘different’ persuasions. The black circle with the diagonal cross, aka the Part of Fortune, makes the third point, a Grand Fire Trine! Fire is purification, inspiration, initiation ~ new beginnings!

The Moon is in maturity at the second to last degree of Libra of relationships, fairness and justice, legal matters. She is what we astrologers call Void of Course, meaning she will make no more major aspects before leaving the sign she is in. To some that is fear things will fall through. To others it means there is nothing to stop it, it’s a done deal. I’m going with the latter since the axes of the chart, horizontal and vertical cross lines, are in ‘fixed,’ stable signs, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus!

Plus, Moon is semi sextile Saturn, the planet of Elders, mentors and maturity and is at maturity at 29 degrees, the last degree, of Scorpio. This is like the Hermit, wise observer, holding the Light for others on the Path. It is calm and settled at the crossroads, symbolizes that the time has come! Take responsibility and do it, or let it go and move on. Though a minor aspect, it is linked with Pluto, death and healing, because Saturn and Pluto are mutual reception, in each others signs. It is serious, as proven by the magnitude of the Law and President Obama giving a special eulogy the same day.

Newsy Mercury, in one of its own signs, newsy Gemini, is in a 7 minute parallel with Arcturus! Guardian of the Bear, Arcturus is a golden red star, considered one of the two most fortunate stars in the sky, Spica being the other. Currently Arcturis is at 24 Libra 23, the Moon passed over it only seven hours before. Arcturus has a reputation of achieving justice through power as well as riches, honors, high renown, self-determination and prosperity by navigation and voyages.

Mercury was also inconjunct, across the chart, but aside from, Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is Death and Resurrection. It is sharing, cleansing, power, mergers. Capricorn focuses and builds, uses time to advantage, is dependable. It rules elders and authority, laws. They were so profoundly in play. The gay marriage announcement happened the same day President Obama gave the Charleston eulogy for state Senator Rev. Clementa Pinckney, victim of a racial shooting, shot only days before along with eight other people.

The Midheaven, MC, is sextile Chiron the wounded Healer teacher. Chiron in Pisces calls for compassion, a form of spiritual enlightenment. There is a blending, a bonding, that transcends poor behavior of people who are afraid. The honor is won and it is up to those who are happy now to prove themselves, the value of what they have won, and be kind to others yet to understand. In the name of what is won, keep the peace, respect others who have differing opinions, as we have wanted them to respect ours.

Leo Ascendant/Rising Sign is the sign of LIGHT, ruled by the Sun! It is also the sign of the Heart, courage, the rainbow of colors, giving generously, our prowess and performance as a unique individual, and PRIDE! It has exceptional potency because it exactly trines the degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, 26 Sagittarius! It was a time of infusion of the Universe. The ASC also sextiles the Libra (relationships) Moon (the People), linking Past and Present, the greater purpose and it’s history. The history and hearts, small legal battles, state by state, city by city, brought us to the tipping point.

Aquarius is the sign at the Descendant, the place of relationships and equality. Aquarius is how we are so different that we stand out from others. It is genius to eccentric, from loner to the most dedicated community worker/advocate. It brings suit when necessary though prefers unity when possible.

Mars and the Sun are in Cancer, the sign of the People of a nation, culture, our families. And isn’t this what it is all about? Jim Obergefell, the main plaintiff, exited the Supreme Court on Friday in tears. All he wanted was to be recognized as one of the family of his beloved partner of 22 years. Mars is leadership, a fighter, hero. Jim was that human. Mars and the Sun are trining Neptune in Pisces, compassion, dreams, saviors. It was more than a simple win for Jim, it was a spiritual victory too. His partner had died, but not in vain. Love won.

In grateful honor of Jim Obergefell and his 22 year partner John Arthur for their caring bravery.

The chart is for the earliest post I could find, Associated Press, at 10:04 AM Eastern! There were probably others, but this was the earliest I came across. If any of you come across one earlier, please let me know, I’ll revise the chart. In the few possible minutes that could be, so little would change, miniscule at that, I felt comfortable to go ahead with this chart.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces the third and last time Valentine’s Day Feb 14!  Taurus and Pisces can both be very sweet signs, though Taurus is sometimes thought to be selfish and unmovable, and Pisces simply oblivious.  Both have very strong associations with Venus, and so does Chiron!  Some think of Chiron as the ultimate relationship planet, THE marriage planet!  Venus associated with Taurus, can be a beautiful body, love, attracting money.  With Pisces, the love of Soul, soul mates, surrender to another or a cause one loves more than one loves oneself, the ability to live in sacrifice, poverty.  At times sacrifice, immersion to exclusion, can be a form of abdication, running away, non contribution, another form of selfishness.  Other times the Soul’s journey depends on letting go of materialism, solitude for healing.  Pisces and Taurus/Venus rule the Arts – Taurus is sculpting, Venus is beauty of all kinds, Pisces is film, theatre, music.  In simple earthly ways, Taurus is grains in the fields; Pisces provides the fishes – the loaves and the fishes – let no one go hungry, body or mind!  Jupiter wants generous well-being through knowledge.  Chiron is intentional healing, in Pisces, spiritual wisdom.  Learn and be healed, be wise and teach.  Education releases Magic!  More

Lights on, heads up!  Get out your Jupiter thunderbolts and let’s dance!

July 2, Dec 6, and Feb 14, Valentine’s Day 2012, Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces! This one will be while Chiron is at 5 Pisces, the first of the three times. July 2 is the last day of the Sun Grand Square, so the build up to this sextile will be challenging, and the challenge will be helped by the teaching healing perspectives the sextile brings. In addition, the Grand Square will be helped by the concurrently building first-time July 7 Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn only 5 days later! That will bring phenomenal growth, power, possible wealth, and potential teaching healing, intensify complex situations. I doubt solutions will be simple or immediate, but they will certainly be fascinating! July 7 is the first day of the Venus Grand Square through the 13th, so the follow through needs a bit of finesse. Let love soften the obstacles even, perhaps especially, when the going already seems good. This will be like a little super challenge. Make a point of loving it uP!

Chiron and Pluto are both thought to be healers. Chiron is concerned with teaching, marriage and business, all partnerships of a kind. Teacher/Student, you and your mate, your business/customers – clients/partners.  In Pisces, they need to be magical!  Fiery spirited Jupiter likes teaching too. It travels about, goes to college, gathers a plethora of knowledge, stories, experience, inter cultural sharing, and brings it to the table for exchange. Jupiter is not so often interested in marriage, can be hard to catch. They are off to another adventure. They can be truth tellers, having points of view acquired on the road.  They see you well because they don’t know you, yet are astute observers since their survival depends on instant appraisals. Whether it be about you, your attitude, or the dynamics in your relationship, they likely have at least a part of the truth. True, they can project, seeing through their own lens, but still, what in you called that up in them? Jupiter is not as interested in money as Chiron and Pluto are. They make do as they go. They laugh and love, have fun, are offered shelter for their stories, do an odd job or two here or there, just enough for food maybe. They have expansive ideas, can see further beyond, since they must anticipate the weather, the temp of the locals, where it’s safe or not. Often their suggestions pan out, quite worth your hospitality, let alone the entertainment value!

Pluto is a no fool-around planet.  It seeks the Great Mystery, unabashedly looks at sex, wants to know how money works, and how it is we come to live and die.  It especially doesn’t fool around in Capricorn, that wants the job done toot sweet.  If things are not working, good, you find that out, done with it.  If you are going up the mountain at a steady pace, good, progress.  Cut losses when it makes sense, less whining, more doing.  It’s all ok.  Focus, use good timing, don’t give up.  Seek coaches and mentors right now!  Jupiter will laugh with you all the way to the bank because it has big ideas and is a great direction finder!  It just knows where the good stuff is!

Both these aspects are positive in classical astrology, so invite a teacher, traveler, soothsayer, to your table. Then listen. Learn about healing – of body, mind, Spirit. Plan a clever party, and laugh because you can and it’s even fun when you are on your knees!  Be free and thankful!

Make your appointment for a reading to see which areas of your chart these and other factors are activating!

Saturn turned direct, forward, June 12, but is still holding a one degree orb, range, to his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) until July 8.  As said last month, ‘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!  Now’s the time to turn around, take it forward!’

Jupiter is now well founded in Taurus, up to 3 degrees, working its way to the Retrograde station at 10 degrees!  Familiar degree?!  It will be stationary at 10 degrees from Aug 15 to Sep 14.  To me this is significant because this is the other sign VENUS rules.  Libra, and Taurus.  It will hold this 150 degrees, quincunx, inconjunct, away from the 10 degree Libra position that Saturn is now holding.  Taurus and Libra both have to do with love and beauty.  Taurus is of money and worldly goods, a lovely body to sculpt, earth herself.  Libra is of marriage love, grace, and etiquette, fine arts, exquisite landscapes.  Saturn in Libra has called us to build this Libran beauty into our lives, each our own way, to take time for grace, allow a patina of maturity, respect.  Jupiter in Taurus invites a recognition and acceptance of organic, intrinsic being, what is, basic values.  It senses a solid step in the ‘right’ direction.  It sees a broader beauty that comes from simple peace.  Yoga.  As Swami Krishnananda says, it is ‘a perceptional change, and not merely an act of doing something with your body.’

In this case, in the sequence of time, Libra has been first, Taurus will follow.  That’s in reverse of zodiacal order.  So humans and their personal balance, and their balance among our peers comes first.  How we treat our self, each other.  If we don’t treat ourselves well and have bank of grace with some to spare, giveaway, how will we be magnetic and attract beauty, with the financial poise that brings peace?  Sometimes a perfect storm clears the path; other times, a gentle fearless course, a smile at your enemy, dispels the battle, quells the defenses.  Through the lovingness of another (Libra), a courtship of Spirit, we are blessed with seeing, feeling, we are so very ok to BE our Self, just the way we are (Taurus).  Divine.

Fascinating combination, Jupiter in Taurus.  In Taurus Jupiter is grounded, toned down, less needing to wander off, pleased with where it has landed, becomes more the observer, offers options for expansion.  Taurus is jazzed up with Jupiter on its turf, gets curious with the ‘what ifs,’ is a wee bit more motivated, less its predictable self, dabbles in foreign affairs.  The rolling stone gathers no moss.

Venus Transit/Eclipse Chart – 15 Gemini, June 5, 2012!

North American observers can see it the afternoon of June 5, 2012

I’m writing to you well in advance about this event because I think it is important and it precedes the 2012 Mayan calendar event by only a few months.  I am wanting you to hold it in your consciousness, every day be readying yourself for it, put it in your practice.  Be thinking how you can get others ready.  If I could, I would have you see it as sort of like a Soul bath.  You would lay in your lawn chair, facing the Sun, and vision yourself soaking up everything there is to receive, being bathed in loving Light.  You don’t even have to know what that is.  I believe it will come.  Clean your receptors, open your heart.  Those of you who know astrology, study how it will be placed in your chart.  I’m starting to talk about it with every client.

Venus Transits come in pairs spaced eight years apart, but the time between pairs is 122 years, then 105 years. Due to this pattern, only six Venus transits have been seen since the invention of the telescope.  The 2004 Venus Transit was the first of our latest pair. Before that, the most recent transit had been in 1882—which means no living people on Earth had seen a Venus transit when the 2004 event occurred.  Some speculate this rare Transit was one of the reasons the Mayans chose 2012 as their 26,000 year cycle end/start date.

The Venus eclipses have been in the first 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius since 60 AD!  The previous June 8, 2004 Venus Transit was at 17 Gemini, square Jupiter, widely square Moon/Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto (a loose Mutable Grand Cross involving 7 planets).  Mutable signs call for diversity, adaptability.  The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is mind and meaning, communications near and far, from here to the University.  The Virgo/Pisces axis is service and devotion, working hard and dreamtime magic, healers of body and Soul.

This Venus retrograde conjuncts/eclipses the Sun at 15 degrees airy space-in-the-mind Gemini, both of them square Mars at 16 degrees  get-the-job-done Virgo.  Venus in Gemini is loving communications, appreciations, expressing affection, valuing diversity of thinking.  Square Mars in Virgo calls for that desire being thought about to be put into action, to break through from pleasure to leadership on a daily basis.  Virgo tends the fort, wants all to be healthy, not too much sugar!   Jupiter is at 28 degrees, finishing Taurus about to enter Gemini, just one degree from the Pleiades.  Mercury is at 27 Gemini, in a one degree semi sextile with this Jupiter.  There will be a lot to say, some of it profound, about the goings on, because this 27 Gemini position is powerfully positioned exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER, downloading the information to the people!  This is important because the Mayan Calendar turnover at the Sacred Tree, Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012, occurs only 6 degrees from the Galactic Center!  The Moon is conjunct Pluto, sextile Chiron, square Uranus.  This Moon position highlights Pluto; Pluto at this degree becomes part of the Jupiter three planet 8 degree YOD in the Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar turnover!  All will not go as planned, surprises in the offing, some left behind, inevitable deep-rooted change due to fathers, sadly, something to ‘weep’ about, a longed for professional matter at stake.  Some things, though much talked about, must be done alone, yet profoundly affect our mates, or we are affected by them….

Venus Transit chart, June 5, 2012, 5:09 PM Pacific, Santa Barbara CA

Due to the huge size difference, no way can Venus ‘eclipse’ the Sun – we call it a Venus Transit.  In images it is a mere black dot in a sea of yellow fire as it crosses the face of the Sun!  I think of it as a voyage, pilgrimage, a rite of passage, across this magnificent space being.  It is a merger, an immersion, being imbued, saturated, infused, with the brightest Light our Solar System, our neighborhood in the galaxy, has to offer!  And it is lined right up with US!  Whew!  This is the Kleig Light of Heaven, from our Heart of Light, transmitted, telegraphed, filtered, amped, a direct shot!  Do you think flowers in bloom at that time will have more powerful pollen, seeds, essences?!  Not one pore of Venus will be left untouched.  If your love went cold, those with planets touched by this aspect, will be warmed right back up, solar charged!  You may feel you have plenty to give, more than ever!  Venus matters ‘enlightened’ will involve beauty, the arts, money, attractiveness, our values, love, kindness, graciousness, giving.  Perhaps you will be ‘weeping’ for JOY!

In Gemini, the Word, all those matters will be spoken of, listened for, written up!  Start your blog!  Multifaceted ideas will spring forth, diversity rules!  Marketing and advertising will be blessed with connecting people who love what is being sold.  Contracts will be better for all involved.  How we learn, pay attention, will improve, education be more cherished.  Learning a second language will be more valuable not only to improve memory, but to make special connections with people that used to be out of reach.  Touch healing, massage will flourish.  Sports like tennis, running, may make new records!  Very true, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.  Words of praise and appreciation make all the difference.  Love formula – 5 praise to 1 criticism.  What we think – what we focus our attention on, how we think – half full/half empty, matters.  Profoundly.

Venus rules first Taurus, Earth, then Libra, Air.  Taurus has a sensual beauty, rules celebrities and common sense, the monies at hand, the sitting Buddha, Earth, our self esteem.  Libra rules classic beauty, the fine arts, etiquette, Kwan Yin, balance, our adult peer relationships, marriage, how we see our value among our peers, legal proceedings.  We all have both signs in our charts.  Find out where they are in your chart, then read the Venus Transit into those houses, and which house the exact Transit is in, to see what and where you personally are activated.

Those of you with birthdates from the 2nd to the 8th of the month, and/or have planets from 12 to 19 degrees of any sign, will be the most affected by the Venus Transit.  Most air and fire signs will be comfortable with it, may flourish.  Other mutable signs, Virgo and Pisces at square, Sagittarius opposite, may be put off by all the ‘meaningless’ chit chat, may not even hear of it, or be surprised by, perhaps at first annoyed by, new ideas that seemed hidden!  Earth signs want to keep their routine, but there will surely be disruptions.  Water signs, though intrigued, may duck under to see what is happening below the surface and to rest their ears.

A client asked me …will all these changes be for the good?  In some ways the World is already better as people seek new solutions (energy production, government).  Any change proves there CAN be change.  With a lot of old world regimes toppling, there will be chaos and clumsy reform that may take years to settle.  That’s normal.  Change of such magnitude takes time.  Flooding with education and information (Gemini) are imperative.  Giving alternate solutions gives choice (Gemini).  Some of those people have been ‘asleep’ for a long time.  Breaking with tradition and psychological habit is scary.  So change itself, though a relief for some, is part of what can stall the very things it is looking toward.  Encouragement and less poverty, the ability to provide for themselves, create a security base that allow the luxury of a more positive choice.  One of the maxims of natural cycles is it is always darkest before the Light.  Now is the time to stay steady – get us through and beyond the chrysalis of this stage.  Though a chrysalis is a hardened shell, to protect the pupa of the butterfly, it is often seen twitching with life when touched….

This Venus Transit comes before the Dec 21, Winter Solstice, 2012 Mayan calendar end/turnover, giving us LOVE first to cap the final achievements.  We finish the final days before the Calendar ends with more GRACE.  This sets the foundation for a sweeter start of the next cycle, the BLESSINGS to come in the new times!

Let love light the dark way, return to the Light, see the Light.  Merge with, emerge from, the Heart of Light, it’s a free ride!  Reverence to all Beings.  Namaste.  Or as the Mayans say, “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself [Gemini, the Twins]. 

Gemini, Sign of the Hands, the Honored Sign of Transference of the Venus Transit June 5, 2012

Please do see more, about the Jupiter Gemini Connection to the eclipse in the months that follow!

Sai(nts) Baba Gone and Sinners, Osama bin Laden Death Chart

Sathya Sai Baba is gone, tornadoes came to Alabama, William & Kate had their Royal Wedding, and the beatification of John Paul II happened! 

Bin Laden’s assassination has brought extremes of thinking and further stirred an already boiling world-wide pot!  Pluto in Capricorn has brought changes in long time regimes, and isn’t quitting.  Though  bin Laden didn’t ‘rule’ for a long time, he made world-wide impact as being thought to be the power behind the 911 attack, being so immune to capture, and simply being tall among men, confirmed 6′ 4″ tall.  Uranus, planet of surprises, in fiery Aries, is coming closer and closer into its square (challenge) with Pluto, of death and healing, and will continue to be in this square until Mar 16, 2015, making 7 exact aspects!  This aspect will continue to topple governments and powerful leaders.  And, the Phoenix will rise from its own ashes.

Deciphering the moment of death is a challenge in this kind of situation.  LivingMoonAstrology.com says ‘The American commando stormed the suburban home where Bin Laden was living on May 2, 2011, at around 1 am local time, according to a witness [Sohaib Athar] twitting the events in real time.’  Wikipedia says ‘ At approximately 1:00 a.m. local time (20:00, May 1 UTC), the SEALs breached the compound’s walls using explosives and attacked the compound’s structures and the compound’s guards opened fire.’  Also, ‘”The encounter with bin Laden lasted only seconds,” according to Politico, and took place during “the last five or 10 minutes” of the raid.’  CNN reported ‘A firefight was under way for most of the 40 [38] minutes that U.S. Special Operations forces were in the compound, as the team encountered resistance from bin Laden and three other men, a senior defense official said.  The official said the forces had to fight their way through the first floor of the three-story building, where two adult males lived.  Bin Laden and his family lived on the second and third floors, and they were cleared last, with bin Laden killed in the last five or 10 minutes of the siege, the official said.’  But, the  HeraldNews.SunTime.com says ‘But bin Laden refused to give himself up. That’s when he was shot in a bedroom — only minutes into the raid — ending a 10-year manhunt.’   Wiki further says ‘The raid was intended to take 30 minutes. All told, the time between the team’s entry in and exit from the compound was 38 minutes.  Time in the compound was split into exchanging gunfire with the defenders and searching the compound for information.’

Maybe it took them 10 minutes to have his wife ID him, do the photo ID comparisons, body bag him and transport him to the helicopter and leave?  That puts us back to 1:28 AM.  I put up a chart for May 2, 2011, at 1:28 AM in Abbottabud, Pakistan.

Death of Osama bin Laden Astrology Chart

Bin Laden’s death chart Moon is at 25 Aries.  It connects with 4 factors in bin Laden’s Mar 10, 1957 sunrise birth chart [birth time unknown].  1) It same degree semi sextiles his sunrise Mars (with South Node) at 25 Taurus – didn’t surrender.  Mars is the planet of Aries, so this is a stronger semi sextile than usual.  2) The Moon trines his Pluto at 28 Leo, forming a Grand Trine – smooth flowing, with the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius!  He was a man connected with the destinies of nations, even when he was in a cave!  Perhaps it was good it went quickly.  I think there will be more to the story in time.  Perhaps good will come of it in as yet unforeseeable ways.  3) It inconjuncts his Jupiter 27 Virgo that squares the Galactic Center, schisms between religions, family and funerals – he was hated by many, ‘buried’ at sea, and his son was killed.  4) It sextiles his sunrise Moon 27 Gemini, which was opposite the Galactic Center.  It was through his courier, Gemini, to his home, Moon, that revealed his location.  In some charts the Moon rules the People, in others it is the women and children, your family and home.  Certainly, we are hearing amazing points of view about the event.  The Moon is a fast moving factor, so it wouldn’t be expected, but in both charts, the Royal Wedding and this one, the Moons are connected with the Galactic Center, making international news.  Both of these events then, are connected with the Mayan Sacred Tree/Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012 calendar end/turnover, since the Sacred Tree center occurs only 6 degrees of the Galactic Center!

The six planet Aries stellium is formidable.  This is not a peacemaking combination, but a charging war!  Osama was shot twice, and it was done.  The whole operation took only 38 minutes.  The Aries Moon is Void of Course like in William & Kate’s Royal Wedding chart!  Astrologers would rarely choose a VOC Moon for an event, yet here again, we have a successful enterprise.  None of the horary astrology ‘exception’ rules apply to this chart as they did in William & Kate’s, but six planets in Aries?!  That could ram through just about anything!  And once a Taurus gets moving….  True, there is the other Void of Course caveat.  Compared to ‘nothing will come of it’ – that would be good if there are no further attacks/retaliations on America, ‘there’s nothing to stop it’ was exactly what happened!  Perhaps it’s a bit like the retrograde rule – if you are experienced with a matter, you will usually succeed during a retrograde.

Specifically, Mars doubly powerful in its own sign, conjunct lucky Jupiter, is like a powerhouse!  Mars is fast, fervent, focused, loves machines and weapons and fights, is especially courageous if the underdog.  They did lose that helicopter though.  Uranus of flight in a breaking square with Pluto endings.  Then they killed the helicopter with an explosion, Uranus, to obliterate it for security reasons, Pluto and Pluto.  That Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries has only happened two times before since 1900, Jan 6, 1940, and June 16, 1975.  This one was the day after the Royal Wedding, and the day of bin Laden’s assassination!

The Sun is at 11 degrees Taurus, in a life force breaking square with the Ascendant 15 degrees Aquarius.  In a manner, the bird is set free.  Taurus may be too slow and low in the chart to recover from this rift in the organization.  The Royal Wedding chart Sun also squares the Ascendant but in different signs!  The Ascendant/Descendants are reversed!  Theirs is 5 Leo Ascending while bin Laden’s death chart is 15 Aquarius Ascending.  I said, ‘With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.’   The Sun is leaving the sextile with Chiron, marriage, and the trine with Pluto, wealth.  No more.  And the Sun has moved up to inconjunct Saturn, another kind of life force weakening/breaking aspect, often not good for your health.  I said, ‘Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times.’

Venus and Mercury have moved just beyond the opposition with Saturn in Libra that was in the Royal Wedding chart making communications an issue, or perhaps creating and keeping a bridge of connection.  In this case it is good there was no connection; he never saw them coming!  Mercury has moved into conjunction with Jupiter, so the news is BIG!

Why the burial at sea?  Neptune the planet of the sea is in its own sign Pisces now, the sign of the sea.  29 Pisces is on the 2nd cusp, the part of the chart that has to do with one’s body.  29 Pisces is the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac, conjunct the 7 Weeping Sisters, the Pleiades.  The End.  Osama, himself a Pisces, has gone ‘home.’  Saturn is in the 8th of death, and rules the 12th of end of Spirit.  The usual options were blocked.  The ritual performed was probably the best they could do to show respect to a formidable warrior, stop further damage.  Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, suggests a death of necessity, to end the past with a significant message.  Perhaps enough time has passed that he won’t be made a martyr.

Wishing you peace and healing no matter what your circumstances are. I had a friend who was in the towers, survived 911, but her Spirit was struck. I pray, in time, losses and revenge will dissolve to forgiveness. Blessed be.

Uranus Square Pluto, Royal Wedding Chart, William & Kate!

Uranus square Pluto is starting, now 5 degrees in orb.  That will keep things shaking!  Oops, maybe I shouldn’t say that.  Uranus in Aries is the rebellious young upstart compared to the wizened Pluto burrowing the depths of corporate Capricorn.  Yet Pluto is associated with journalism, follows the money, a trouble maker of a different ilk.  Power will be questioned.  Put them together and things that were thought to be impermeable may be disturbed at the deepest foundations, shaken to thunder!  Long standing old schools will have cracks in their armor, new conduits able to be begun.  Some will fall of their own finished weight, to be replaced for better benefit, or simply let go – no need to go further, job done.  Strange and wonderful new alliances will be tried and some will work and break through to whole new types of community models, building codes, laws.  Businesses once thought to be ridiculous will begin to prove themselves as the needs of the times and hidden technology comes to light to make them feasible.  Those who ride the snorty horse will fly!  Let those pawing hooves make fiery sparks! 

Another take on Uranus into Aries, square Pluto.  This aspect is unique because it happens 7 times!  It will be exact for the first time June 23, 2012, finishing Mar 17, 2015, in effect for five years!

I wrote the above with no thought of the Royal Wedding, William & Kate, in mind.  Yet this is the most powerful aspect of the out most planets, longest in duration, in their wedding chart.  It will always be in their wedding chart, but the actual aspect in the sky will culminate Mar 17, 2015.  At that point it shall have made 7 exact connections at varying but close degrees.  If their marriage is surviving at that time, they will probably make it.  So much is being said about how their marriage is giving hope in hard economic times and following the years of sadnesses around Charles, Diana, and Camilla.  Perhaps this symbolizes breaking through old patterns of the monarchy, British financial reform.

Some are using the 11 AM start of the wedding for the wedding chart;  I am using the 11:20 AM pronouncement moment – the intent of the event before your peers.  If you really want to get technical about it, use the chart when the last person signed the papers for official records after the ceremony.  The 11 AM chart has Venus of love and beauty at the top of the chart, and the wedding did start on time, and was a lovely ceremony that went off without a hitch though William did have a hard time getting the ring on Kate’s finger (Saturn opposite Mercury). 

Royal Wedding Chart, Prince William & Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

The most unique feature of the wedding chart is that simplistically, the Moon is Void of Course in Pisces square the Galactic Center.  Void of Course, VOC, is the time period from when the Moon makes its last connection with any planet and the time it enters a new sign.  There are extreme opposing points of view of what this period brings.  The traditional view is nothing will come of it, it won’t come out as expected, somewhat unpredictable.  This is great if your question is ‘Will I go to jail?’!  Rarely would a VOC Moon be chosen for a wedding chart.  Since the Moon has directly to do with fertility and a royal heir is usually wanted, this would be doubly so in this case.  It is said, ‘…the moon relating to the mother, will give a mother who was ‘not there’ so to speak. she may not have been there physically, emotionally, or she may have been even neglectful.’  Will’s mother Diana, ‘not there,’ is an important facet of their lives together.  The other view is there is nothing to stop it, nothing to stand in its way.  Hilary Clinton’s Moon (women) is VOC in Pisces in her 10th house of career and authority!  First Lady.   There are exceptions to the VOC rule, and this chart has them.  The Moon is said to ‘perform’ in Pisces – Pisces lives to osmose!  When it changes signs it will conjunct Uranus at 2 degrees Aries – free to act! Mercury and Jupiter are in an angular house, the 10th – a place determined to accomplish.  Jupiter with Mars is lucky to act!  How to resist?!!!

Still, as compelling as those aspects are, organically, the Moon, back at 26 degrees, four to go to change Signs, I would give the VOC read precedence, attending to reading the Moon for herself.  Pisces does move, but it can be ever so cleverly quietly, miniscule motion, practically invisible.  The VOC Moon is like a pause.  Preceding matters have been concluded, we’re in the done-deal zone, with perhaps a sense that it was all fated.  This is like a thoughtful, perhaps resting, reset period, in internal adjustment readying for the next Sign, the Gateway.  It is a step in a process.  A chart with lots of upcoming Lunar aspects in a Sign has many unfolding options, a rich future if favorable, is busy.  In traditional successful wedding charts, the Moon is chosen to be in trine or sextile with the Sun, Mother and Father, the Lights in harmony for fertility, full of life!  This chart has no upcoming Lunar aspects, no classic Sun/Moon, male/female connection. 

Pisces, the Moon’s Sign, is also an ending symbol, finishing symbol of maturity, being the last Sign of the Zodiac.  It too has to do with rest, contemplation, the unknown, unknowable, visioning.  To the negative side, it can be addictions, the victim/martyr, hidden agendas, fantasy versus reality.  For Kate going from commoner to Queen, it can be the dream come true, fairy tales.  Moon nurtures unconditionally; Pisces is the ultimate compassion.  It gives a dramatic counterpoint to the 5 planet Aries stellium (cluster – see below)!  Aries is noted for action, can be courageous first responders, but is not noted for ongoing care with deep sensitivity.  The Moon rules mothers, children, women in general, and Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt, in particular.  And Mother Diana was missing.  Pisces also rules being in Spirit form.  In the Abbey, closest to where William and Kate stood to take their vows, there were five chairs. Four of them were taken, by the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla … and then there was an empty chair. Was that chair for Diana?

Some are saying this ‘lost’ Moon in ‘lost Pisces’ is symbolically a way of putting away Diana’s influence. Maybe so, but she was William’s mother. That concept doesn’t work for me. This Void of Course position is akin to an ‘escape’ planet, a planet that has no connections formed to it or by it. It is in a separate state, unhindered, but ineffective, sometimes a loose cannon since there is nothing to censor its choices, no outlets to siphon off energy. It’s behavior often seems inappropriate.  It’s one thing to ‘put away’ a matter, it’s quite another to not get any benefit from the Moon other than the Sign it is in. 

Being on the brink of the Mayan calendar ending 2012, that event quite close to being at the Galactic Center, the Moon being a degree of square the Galactic Center seems significant!  Perhaps they will never take their kingdom or their kingdom, the monarchy system, will be ended, or it will be fraught with difficulties throughout their time.

Their Sun is in Taurus, a sign of fertility and stability, loyalty forever!  And there were earthy Pagan elements to the wedding.  Trees brought into the Abbey.  It was near Beltane – May Day celebration of fertility.  They had a hand wrapping – called handfasting in Pagan circles.  The archbishop who married them is a Druid!  And William’s full name is William Arthur Philip Louis, Arthur being the King of old mythical legends.

Leo Rising, the Ascendant, is a romantic Sign of Kings & Queens, great powers!  As Taurus, it is another fixed sign, cherishes its mate and takes a long time before it gives up.  It is generous, loves to teach, is thought to be selfish at times, is great fun to be around, has boundless energy!  Trine Venus, is kind, loves glorious beauty and color.  Their wedding was bright – William’s red uniform (Aries’ color).   

FIVE planets in Aries!  Aries is not famous for finishing projects nor fertility, but is a splendid champion, passionate leader!  Both Leo and Aries are athletic.  The group of five starts with Uranus of community, international connections, freedom.  Then there is Venus, love of independence, heroes, celebrities, art by fire.  The MidHeaven in Aries decides to try new things in government, laws, status.  Mercury is next, with inspiring things to say, fresh insights.  Mars and Jupiter conclude together.  Mars here is in its own Sign, racy super action, with Jupiter is legendary!  Jupiter is what we think is righteous, good luck, horses and big dogs, expansion, future plans, travel, publishing, education!  Expect these two to broaden and brighten Britain!  Aries is less famous for stopping to make agreements, more famous for spontaneous action, sometimes fiery fights, but quickly over!  One way or another, this couple will make a lot of news! 

With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.  Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times. 

Saturn at 12 Libra is at a midpoint opposition with Venus 10 Aries, MidHeaven 12 Aries and Mercury 14 Aries!  Sometimes duty will dominate, love and simply doing what you want to do will seem far, far away.  There may not always be time to talk, so many responsibilities.  And at times, it will just be good to be apart, a little room to navigate freely. 

The Sun sextile Chiron of Marriage, and semi sextile Venus of love and affection, will soften and protect them, give a sweetness.   

Sun trine Pluto is the number one US corporate wealth aspect!  If it works well in Britain too, their fortunes together are likely assured!  Saturn though square Pluto, and is going back, retrograde, to 10 degrees, never makes the exact square to Pluto at 7 degrees.  There will be financial scares, close calls, perhaps, but will never quite happen.  The issues of their country’s economics will always be of concern.

Spiritually speaking, whether by chance or chosen, a wedding chart is always perfect.  The couple has the ultimate final choice of date, time and place.  Whatever is the Soul’s agreement, agenda, the chart will show the way and be lived in all its intricacy. 

If you didn’t see it and would like to, here is a link to watch the ceremony.  At the very beginning, note the lovely greenery in the abbey!
