Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

An epic coastal curvy view along California’s Big Sur at Bixby Bridge, Big Sur Creek.

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of the three of 2019! All three involve water signs. In the Annual Newsletter I wrote: Pisces, the sign of the magnificent oceans, magic and the Great Mystery! From addicts to saviors, muddlement to acute insight and psychic accuracy. Being lost, to dedication forever led by celestial music.  

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking mountain switchbacks or driving a small zig zag road along a ragged coastline, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inner bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch.

Uniquely, this Mercury Rx 3 part cycle is tied with two outer planet sign changes! It starts Feb 18, the first day of Pisces 2019, the day Chiron goes into Aries its final time, the day before the Full Snow SuperMoon! Mercury starts Retrograde March 5, the day before Uranus goes into Taurus! Chiron’s change happens every 51 years, while Uranus is on an 84 year cycle! These are significant changes.

Chiron has been in Pisces, so Mercury’s job is to keep that Pisces healing in our minds, the spiritual component of us present, while this shift is in progress. The starting point is 16 Pisces. Mercury will go forward to 29 Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the zodiac! It will turn, Retrograde there March 5, and go back to 16 Pisces on March 28. It turns forward, Direct, then, covering the same degrees the third time, completing the entire cycle April 16!

Since this focus in Pisces starts on the day Chiron goes into Aries, leaving Pisces, it seems we are not to forget those last degrees in Pisces. Chiron is going forward, and Aries is the sign of fresh and new! It’s easy to jump into the new excitement. Mercury will be like an archive of insights, will keep Chiron’s tools at hand and offer them up when needed. Mercury is generally logical. In Pisces it’s less fettered by logic and quickly responds without necessarily thinking. You learn to trust your instincts more while it’s in Pisces. That will be most helpful while Chiron is on new ground, now an Aries first responder type!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when it turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep.

Retrogrades can be in two signs. This one is in Pisces. We all have Pisces in our charts, so take note where Pisces is for you. Mercury is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted/intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get copies, save and backup.

Mercury Rx specific to Pisces. Specific? Pisces doesn’t usually do specific, but, when psychic, they can be deadly accurate! However, Pisces stuff can include changing the music, the date for the meditation event, gallery location. Pisces is the new sound machine and lighting. The cruise is cancelled or you change the itinerary. Insurance benefits, interest rates may change. You fall out of love with your belief system, and in a few days the new one isn’t for you either. Your schedule is forgotten when the surf’s up. Be sure to get receipts (not a Pisces thing) for the new wetsuit or snorkel gear, surfboard, sail. Shipbuilding materials will become unavailable or a different choice made. Your definition of beauty becomes less common, more ethereal. Art you like today becomes passe tomorrow.

How to fix the film, get the seafood for the restaurant, where to go to meditate? What is your Spiritual standing, what are your beliefs? Which water gear to buy, which boat, seaside motel? Should I be a lifeguard, scuba or surf instructor? Do I really believe that vision? What about all that debris in the ocean, what technique or organization can take of that? Save the whales, dolphins, orcas? Help the homeless or invest in coastal real estate? And we haven’t talked about climate change, rising water temps and heights. There is so much to be done. Maybe you will find some answers during this Retrograde.

Pisces will make music, take you to a magical place, sell you fresh fish, buy you a surfboard. They will meditate with you, make films, help you disappear, save your life from invisible pathogens. Thinking can bring drinking. At worst they will be the helpless hopeless victim/martyr addict, sinners. At best they are the most compassionate Angel you ever met, one of God’s own miracles. Keep connected with your sponsor; get help right away. Some things are hard to do alone. The rest of us are mushing around in the middle wanting, praying, to be a better person.

Pisces is more than the apparent physical events. It’s the sign of Spirit, of Holy Union, Beingness, Soul. In these often uncommon zones, there is illusion since we can’t see in the way we always have. We sense presence. We get lost, scared, even lonely. We think we are lost  because we just don’t ‘know’ anymore or for awhile. Wait, concentrate on awareness, how you feel. There can be confusion that takes us from our standard responses, opens us to other possibilities on new ground. It really is ok not to know. It is a useful state of consciousness that helps us to contemplate new concepts, adjust to their existence, add the facet of them that is our part to carry! But don’t expect them to remain the same as we grow with them each day! Pisces if the sign of Morph! Evolution is a living thing. Let yourself be free to ooze on into the future. Creation can be violent as a tsunami, watching a becalmed glassy sea, elegant, humble, always intriguing and magical! It can be comprehensible, or something we merge with that we surrender too and just go with it until we understand if we ever do. It can happen in a fraction of a second. Might take aeons to perfect.

Mercury is naturally connected with Gemini airy mind and Virgo daily earth services, both logical signs. In Pisces, Mercury is in the sign opposite Virgo. Virgo administers the meds very carefully, does accounting, writes cleverly, is a consummate craftsperson that is renowned for excellent technique and detail. Pisces is tuned to subtle details, a shift in the air. They go by what they feel and dream. Mercury wanders in this sign. Many things don’t matter so much as in ordinary daily thinking. Their attention floats, picking up nuances, tones, whispers, imagination. What does matter is how you succeed as a human with compassion, loving kindness, encourage others to believe in themselves. Mercury Rx here drifts among us, making assessments, seeing what needs doing, how it can be done – often so subtly no one knows you were there. Change seemingly comes from out of the blue… Ideas may be put into sound, art, an illustration, image, an imaginary story.

In Pisces, Mercury squares Gemini. Gemini is known for flitting like a butterfly from flower to flower. Some disrespect that ability; gardeners are grateful their veggie plants get pollinated! Gemini is the vital human to human connections, siblings, neighbors. Pisces is human to Soul, God, Spirit. Both of them are seeking quality connections. A square challenge here is the difference of mediums. Gemini is airy, logical; Pisces is watery, mysty. Gemini can’t see through the mist. Pisces doesn’t function literally/linearly. It takes a wee bit of time for them each to adjust to the other’s modality. Each senses the other has importance, so get frustrated when it isn’t easy at first. Go easy, take it a bit at a time.

Aspects formed 3 times during Mercury Pisces Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are four! Foremost is the lead aspect of the Retrograde cycle, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s own planet! It started the whole cycle on its beginning day Feb 18! Mercury is usually quite a talker, but in Pisces may spend more than usual time listening, absorbing, feeling, even just wandering, observing. Rather than link to link reporting, there may be a standing back, getting a more comprehensive account of what is seen. Neptune is not always so easy to instantly label. He may be enjoying that space deliberately, or simply be his sometimes shy nature that prefers quiet solitude. That is not usually Mercury’s perch. There are many mysteries to explore, unravel, and that makes Mercury more curious than ever. Fascinating challenge. There is much Neptune would love to have more people know about and understand. Mercury is good at articulating visions and ideas so the average person can get it! Neptune’s visions are important, not to be lost in dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception.

Mercury sextiles both planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto! This is a total switch from Neptune. Capricorn is the hard core last earth sign, sign of stones, ice, glass, concrete! Saturn is his own planet, and Pluto is not to be messed with! You better make sense, have your links in a row, be able to stand up under questioning. Sextiles offer opportunities. If Mercury looks credible, perhaps intuitive Pisces will bring him through by hitting the precise mark Saturn and Pluto are looking for. There is a deeper part of each of them that is wanting much more than money. But it’s good to start by mixing both parts of your proposition together, preferably how one part can pay for the other! They might need you to do some advertising for them. The job might be small, but some potent words and placement could make all the difference in their business. Or it could be a huge job and you think twice about taking it on. Take a deep breath and see what you can do. Remember, Mercury type efforts most go awry during Mercury Retrograde. Even though this is a positive sextile, I would way over estimate your fee. This time it is better to go by the hour than by the job. The client themselves are likely to change horses midstream and it’s their choice, not yours. So the positive here is you get more hours. Put the agreed on hourly fee in your contract and everybody sign it. They could request you do some researching. That definitely needs to be paid time too.

Mercury squares Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius. That is often not so tough, but can be when it is! Mercury can talk too much, making Jupiter crazy when he’s focused in a certain direction. They can chat too much and not get the job done. In Pisces it can be confusing and Jupiter has big imagination, so they may need to just back up and start over though the cat is already out of the bag. Both are story tellers, Mercury short, Jupiter long. Might not pay for Mercury to try to publish Jupiter’s book right now. Not the best time to make travel decisions or school/instructor decisions. Truth itself is questioned. Both planets and signs can be naive at times. Scams are afoot; guard your friends. Be careful about libel. Clarify right away. Faith is overwhelmed by distracting questions. But. If Jupiter is right on, and not being recognized, Mercury could come up with a breakthrough channel to the core and put Jupiter on the map, finally credited as he should be! Jupiter can be out in the boonies of philosophy while Mercury is right here in town getting the word out, sell, sell, selling! In Pisces?! Sure! When he believes because he has ‘seen,’ he can be inspiring and invincible!

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

Uranus is Mercury’s wild card friend. They are each communicators – Mercury mind, Uranus genius. Mercury is enthralled with the amazing array of ideas Uranus concocts out of thin air! He knows he’s hearing only the half of it. Volumes are communicated on into dawn! Mercury has a million questions! Uranus can uplift the perspective, sometimes bringing Mercury to the height of perception! Uranus is challenged to satisfy this psychically insightful questioner! Uranus has been closely tied with Chiron the entire time Chiron was traversing Pisces! They have each taken on a bit of the other, a camaraderie has been established. So Mercury in Pisces is more easy with Uranus than when Mercury was in other signs. Mercury instinctually realizes this may be the chance of a lifetime!

On the other hand, Uranus has more patience in Taurus, but he is still way ahead of Mercury and at times may get bored quickly with Mercury chatter, no matter how clever it is. Might be good to connect several different times for less time. Mercury can find Taurus a little slow for his taste, yet he can be surprised by Taurus when one of those awesome things Taurus has been thinking about suddenly is complete and pops up! And a terrific idea it is, all the details worked out! So Mercury continues to check in. Mercury finds himself thinking on a larger scale and is alert to how to get more people on board. See more about the Uranus sign change

Pisces has mixed feelings about Uranus. He knows Uranus can disturb the valence at the drop of a hat. Uranus brings quakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, lightning shocks. Pisces can be excited at the time, aware of nature’s own magnificent terrifying cycles, and also be in great mourning for the destruction, loss of life. Change on this scale can clear the way for many people at once, to forge a new life more powerful than what was, up to date, a better chance to deal with climate change effectively. Pisces, so aware of suffering, is glad some of that old suffering is over. Uranus is the planet of being ahead of its time. People find themselves inventing new systems for better living for themselves and our planet.

Uranus going into Taurus is comfortable for Pisces. Taurus is restful, steady, gentle, usually kindly. Pisces can be easily frightened, so these slower moves are a relief. There is time to take a look, get acquainted. Uranus is the humanitarian inventor, not so concerned with local matters unless his work is about them. Just know that your changes at a local level can be applied to many small regions or be micro models that can be applied to larger regions!

This Mercury Retrograde is important for hosting these 51 & 84 year sign changes of Chiron and Uranus. Here is the entire Event Timetable:

Aquarius 2019 Celestial HighLights

Aquarius ~ Heavenly!

Aquarius Heavenly 2019 And a softness came from the starlight ~ Yeats

And a softness came from the starlight and filled me to the bone.
~ W.B. Yeats ~

What a wonderful way of speaking of the joy of the Night. Yeats had a Grand Air Trine: Moon in Aquarius trine Sun & Uranus (the planet of Aquarius) in Gemini, trine Saturn (bone) in Libra. Aquarius, and it’s planet Uranus rule the heavens in astrological parlance. Yeats makes this combination into divine poetry. He was an Irish poet awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature 1923. See his chart.

From argonaut to astronaut, space sailors have watched and been guided by the stars. Farmers in fields still use them to calculate the seasons, the equinoxes and solstices. In summer we camp under the stars, bathed in StarLight. So many stories are written about the adventures of star travelers, what we think it might be like…and wonder about possible inhabitants far, far away.

Ouranos, Uranus is Aquarius’s planet, the planet of the Heavens, the etheric realm. Aquarians are often thought of as absent minded, being someplace else, their attention being miles away. They are renowned for their intelligence; they think at the speed of Light. As their opposite sign is Leo, the sign of the Sun, our Star; Aquarians are the sign of the entire collective of stars! They are tapped into the galaxies. Is their intelligence of this world, in their own mind and making, or do they literally channel cosmic energy? They are considered to be ahead of their time, so intelligent few understand them. Some Aquarians are able to cross the divide, explain enough so we get it. Others are not and live alone.

You can see how a smart Aquarian can get bored and in trouble. Even trouble is easy for an Aquarian, fascinating to reverse the principles most people live by, entertaining for sure. LOVE comes when they find a cause that requires all their abilities to work it. When they are with like worldly minds, they can function at the level they are equipped for! They can do technical to the micro detail. They favor electrical, but invention of any kind tests their vast mental prowess. They enjoy problems that are on the cutting edge, unique, previously unsolved, that involve change, sometimes danger, and amazing new materials and principles. The stranger, the better!

Some are uncanny with people, great at selecting tribe members for the fantastic new voyage. The humanitarian intention is greater than the difference factor, and with many contributing, results are astonishing whether it is restoring remote desert or in the computer laboratory researching medical cures. The more people that need the changes, the more challenging the matter. That is the natural size territory for an Aquarian.

By nature, birds and their flight have intrigued Aquarians forever. We have now learned how to fly, even beyond our planet! We see hang gliders, with that panoramic view of Earth, soaring in peace. Photography drones are taking exceptional high-caliber footage, searching for people and pets who are lost in rough terrain, tracking wildfires. It’s not just stars anymore. We are becoming uplifted, living symbolically at more elevated levels. Our minds and attention are expanding. Yes, there are failures and foolishness. As we live in new ways, we have things to work out, and that will be done. We’ve got electric cars – robotic cars are already here, and sure, flying cars are next!

Take good care of your dear Aquarians. They can get so in their minds they forget they have a body. They forget to eat, don’t sleep, no Sun or fresh air. If they are bigger than you are, that’s a problem – you can’t make them, LOL! And they are probably smarter than you are. Do what you can.

The body is one thing, their mind is another! If they are kids, they are going to shred through toys within hours, a few days. What to do? Go places where there are lots of choices? Used toys could help you keep up with expenses. Go to space and Sci-Fi cons, air shows, visit airports. Make friends with air traffic controllers. Check out bird rescue groups. Get a good computer with games, rent a drone. Photography, video classes. Join the local Astronomy Club! Meet their heroes! If you are an adult, take yourself! Get out and blow the dust off! If ever they/you are going to meet a mate, these might be the best kinds of places. It takes one to know one!

You are in good company ~ Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Rosa Parks, Yoko Ono, and Toni Morrison.  Paul Newman, Marley & Mozart, Galileo & Edison, Darwin, Christian Bale! They have all made a difference to our futures.

With our modern space programs, we see through the astronauts’ eyes, even in daytime! That’s different! With modern telescopes we can go on our own to silent places, become immersed in the night. To this day we feel so close with the stars, we profoundly become one with them…as we have always been.

You’re not a creature in body. You exist as the stars exist, participating in their stillness, their immensity. – Louise Glück, excerpt from her poem Telescope, commentary by James Longenbach

Aquarius 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Jan 29 to Feb 1 2019 Moon Venus

Kelly Beatty says: Stay up long enough (or get up early enough), and you’ll see Jupiter and Venus dance with a thin crescent Moon in the predawn sky. The Moon makes a return visit at month’s end, pairing closely with Venus on January 31st. Thanks for the image at Sky & Telescope

Aquarius Overview of Year to Come!

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! 2019’s first 10 months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! All of these will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all Rx, retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs during Aquarius! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Saturn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show and he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

During Aquarius’s year, Uranus and Chiron are making their final sign changes. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries. While he is still in Pisces, we will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Mar 6 Uranus makes his final shift into Taurus. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and balance restored. Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions are taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Sun in Aquarius, ever aware of change, notices the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. There is a more serious note, even an urgency. Education becomes a prime agenda. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in is own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown!

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the exact 34 year conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Aquarius’s coming year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus! The Jan 19 aspect is the day before the Lunar Eclipse Full Wolf SuperMoon!  See more about Chiron/Uranus

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.


Outer Planet Transits with Aquarius 2019 – Jan 2020!

Aquarius! Astronaut Anne C McClain Space Station Dec 2018 6 months mission!

NASA Astronaut Anne C. McClain was selected by NASA in 2013. The Spokane, Washington native earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical/Aeronautical Engineering from West Point. A 2002 Marshall Scholar, McClain earned a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Bath in Bath, England and a Master of Science in International Relations from the University of Bristol in Bristol, England. Lieutenant Colonel McClain McClain, a Senior Army Aviator, has more than 2,000 flight hours in 20 different aircraft. She is a rated pilot for the C-12 Huron (King Air), UH-60 Blackhawk, and UH-72 Lakota and instructor pilot for the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior. She is currently a part of the Expedition 58/59 crew that launched to the International Space Station in December 2018. 

OUTER PLANETS WITH AQUARIUS – Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

For Aquarians there is no place but out and up!

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years, are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018, now moving from 20 to 23 degrees. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival.  Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto is deep and internal, protective, compared with Aquarius floating, soaring high in the sky. Reminds me of a bird of prey combination. Pluto is America’s Eagle, Aquarius is birds and flight, seeking the highest purpose possible. Pluto in Capricorn defends the patriarchy, it’s monies. Aquarius sees the need for sustainability, benefits for humanity, and may campaign for them. If Pluto sees it that way too, Capricorn wisely recognizes inevitable change, he may fund Aquarius’s organizations. Aquarius may shock him into realization by looking him in the eye with his electric voltage full on. Or he may present the data. If they are friends, they may be at such odds they part company for a while, or Pluto listens because he trusts his friend. Be easy, take it a little at a time, non threatening. Pluto in Capricorn wants respect and wants to see how it can all work, what good will come of it. Have your projections clear and realistic. Be ready to answer more questions quickly and succinctly. It may be your only chance.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He 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 sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 14 to 18° will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune/Pisces is of the sign after Aquarius. Aquarius can see many things, but Neptune’s realm is somewhat unfathomable to AQ. AQ is logical and in some ways untouchable, but Neptune envelops him like a foggy night. You know he’s there, you are within him, but you can only see the part nearest you. You can study him, but there is a mystical dimension that is as unpredictable as Aquarius is. Neptune knows you without studying you. Aquarius, though, as an air sign, also has an invisible quality. AQ is intrigued by this other dimension, and though often atheists, it makes him wonder if there is a divine existence… The AQ words are ‘I know,’ but this one isn’t even a puzzle. The pieces keep changing shape.

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, now covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in the last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future ideas that Taurus will anchor and build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. See more about the sign change.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is automatic. In fiery Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

Uranus in Aries, and Aquarius are ChangeMakers! Aries wants it now! Aquarius couldn’t agree more. Some things have been going on far too long. Aries spikes the punch! Fresh ideas, new approaches, new people, are just what’s needed. Times have changed and even though AQ is evolutionary, sometimes we get used to the same old ways, get bored, jaded. We need changing too. Inspiration and upliftment. He wants less thinking, more action! Aries comes in for quick connections, then leaves us to adapt it to the local community or the type of organization we have. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!

March 6, 2019 Uranus enters Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Taurus’s tempo is about as slower than AQ as you can possibly get. Both are fixed signs, so an AQ sitting at the computer hours and days at a time looks pretty slow too. But that brain is sometimes faster than the computer! Taurus may stand in that meadow, letting the 4 stomachs do that digesting, but they are steadfastly taking in what’s around them, symbolically contemplating values step by step. There’s that phrase, ‘Stand still until you can really see.’ They teach AQ how to be able to be still, to let go of thoughts that keep you unmindful of the very body you inhabit. Could save your life. Scent and touch are needed to make connections with others and your and their surroundings. If you can’t connect with sacred Mother Earth, you may still make money, but lose your Soul. Taurus has another kind of intelligence, very organic, animal-like, sensual, peaceful, patient and kind. If feels the wind on its skin.

CHIRON, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, entered Aries April 17 2018! After taking a foray into Aries, he is now back in Pisces until Feb 18, 2019. He will cover 28 Pisces to almost 6 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. See more Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more Pisces and Aries are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! There will be added flavor as Uranus enters Taurus, first a shift in the foundation, then a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Pisces/Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron is just about to finish Pisces. He is the Shaman Healer, fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron, the Shaman, shakes his rattle at Aquarius, dispersing old pet ideas to the four directions. He tends Aquarian wounds of the mind, wounds that are hard to detect by Drs or therapists, ones that came with us from long ago in different times, ages. Even genius has its own kinds of weaknesses, failings, glitches. It has its own prejudices, habitual misinterpretations. Chiron calls AQ to teach its amazing discoveries, to seek relationships that support his greatest purposes, to do business for humanity, have a greater reach.

As Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron goes into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life right now! He commiserates all too well since he also carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into immediate action! Aquarius is delighted – finally! Though he never would have thought to ask for it, help has come! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. Aquarius disperses the information to the masses – through the Internet, worldwide organizations. Chiron finds new ways to inspire, encourage young leaders. Aquarius lends his research findings to back up their presentations. From time to time there are meetings of key people, who then share and bring more people to the community. It’s a spiritual tide.

SATURN builds from 13 to 23 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign! Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 23 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through January 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elderhood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in it’s own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids!

Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now when for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Capricorn can ask for time, but if it’s too much and drudge work, your AQ will vanish, physically or mentally. Supply the latest equipment, and the best. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 11 Capricorn

Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter went into Sag at 4:38 AM Pacific. The huge Camp Fire in Paradise, California started that morning, first calls at 6:33 AM. Jupiter changing signs was preceded by an eventful NINE days started by the important 248 year aspect Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! I had written ‘Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!’ The Camp Fire took the lives of 85 people. Nov 15 nearby Chico CA had an AQI, Air Quality Index, of 350 at one point.

Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sag is a great friend to Aquarius! They are both big thinkers. Jupiter is delighted by Aquarius’s amazing concepts. He does remind Aquarius that ethics and long term are important. He encourages AQ to teach wherever he goes and the both of them love all the traveler Sci-Fi, Star Trek and Space cons! Jupiter may leave the Astronomy Club to Aquarius, but anything air travel related works for him too. Some Jupitarians take phenomenal images and videos. They love perspective, both in image composition and the purpose of it. AQ has a rare style all his own and comparing their results is inspiring to each of them. Both of them love images as teaching tools, illustration of the fantastic that is often a possibility if you only think how to do it! If it’s all too much, they can just run away together, or apart, LOL!

Jupiter in Capricorn makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, and AQ was born to ignore or break them. Maybe Jupiter will succeed in making the rules fun, or at least funny, and Aquarius will comply to a point. Jupiter may call Aquarius to task. After all, why waste such a great mind?! Capricorn can only take things so far; Jupiter knows there is more. Aquarius sees what is ordinary, by the book stuff, that with additional exceptional twists will turn it into magic! Sometimes someone has to tell you what’s needed and ask you to do it. Jupiter sees the potential even if he doesn’t understand it entirely. They know it can work better, but how? That’s where Aquarians come in! They invent those surprising next steps that make it come to life! It’s a super infusion that exceeds expectations and wonderfully so!

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas where they are on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians! Thank you for every breath you take!

Jupiter square Neptune Alice wonderland rabbit cat crown cards

Alice wondering in Wonderland!

8.12.19 Note: Virgo hosts the biggest aspect of this current time! Jupiter has remained closely in square with Neptune since Dec 28, 2018 and is about to make the third and last square during Virgo on Sep 21. The first square was Jan 13, 2019. Jupiter squared and Saturn sextiled Neptune June 16 and 18. Jupiter makes its last square well before Saturn makes its last sextile to Neptune Nov 8. Jupiter has brought some colossal misunderstandings and has questioned and revealed the truth of some of our beliefs and plans. Saturn makes the final decisions in view of possible consequences. For almost a year there have been reconsiderations and trials. Their cycle finishes within days of the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Nov 19 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center, an uncommon pairing.

5.20.19 Note: June 16 and 18 Jupiter and Saturn aspect Neptune at the same degree Pluto conjuncted the Ecliptic Oct 30, 2018! That was at 18 Capricorn, this is at 18 Pisces, a sextile relationship of opportunity. There will be memories, reminders. We will observe what changes we have processed. We will assess our progress, update our goals, be preparing for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio that will also sextile the Ecliptic event!

Jupiter in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces

The first aspect of a New Year sets the tone for that year, and Jupiter square Neptune was the one for 2019, on Jan 13! Both planets are in their own signs, makes each a bit sure they are truly ‘right.’ Sagittarius, with its big laugh and a huge smile may be amused by the sacred principles of Pisces! How dare them laugh in the temple! But you know, sometimes it takes an innocent to flip the switch on what we ‘believe’ in. While Pisceans have been meditating in the monastery, Sag has been out sweeping the world with his travels, gleaning the best wherever he goes! Time to expand our outlook. There will be growing pains, yep, but we will be more compassionate and more inclusive, prospering in all dimensions together!

Yes, Life is a minute to minute gamble! Jupiter loves the game, the on-your-feet life of chances! Neptune is thrilled by the unfolding intuitive seeing what makes a winner, knows the unknowable! It’s the wild card! It’s like having your own private ongoing movie! Sometimes the cards are agin you and other times you can’t lose!

What a walk through MagicLand! You might see Dorothy at Oz or Alice with the Mad Hatter! Or you might go right through the StarGate! Both planets are in their own signs, so each stands strong, their experience intensified! Together, in this combination, they are scattered – taut in your hands, the deck is shuffled and slips through your fingers bursting into an explosion of chaos! Your fate is a blur in every direction, yet divine order always prevails. We just don’t always understand. And we are fascinated.

Jupiter loves a good long trip, whether on foot or horseback or some amazing conveyance! Neptune might take you on that long journey right where you sit and meditate, no ticket required. You could arrive at an Unknown that can’t be read, or into insights beyond understanding, into outer space! A cruise ship might be pricey, but the marvels of the sea and exotic civilizations are intoxicating.

A Square brings its challenges. Sagittarius and Pisces are both mutable, changeable signs, but different! Jupiter is a fire sign planet, 98% optimistic. They live big, so much so that they are prone to exaggeration, for good or bad! Neptune, a water sign planet, can be shy as a San Francisco fog at night, or as ferocious as a tsunami that washes the entire island clean! It has huge imagination – either of dreams and visions of God and grandeur, or of painful failures that leave them lying in the gutter, helpless and homeless, even sadness and loneliness forgotten. This is where that obnoxiously wonderful Jupiter comes in with some ideas and lifts you back up with hope you never thought you would ever have again! It’s practically a divine miracle! Jupiter isn’t even tender about it, because they believe in you! Their robust voice goes right to your Soul and that big smile takes a little getting used to, but it’s genuine.

Sometimes these two brush past each other, barely realizing the other is there. Jupiter may need to just go alone at times, and whisks by. Neptune needs his solitude, is so focused he barely notices your presence. Also, Neptune is quite sensitive about where he is and all places are not for him. Sometimes he senses there may be trouble ahead and no kind of pushing will make him go. There are times he should be listened to, and Jupiter is so disappointed. Try another time. Go someplace else with somebody else?

There are major differences in their travel styles. Jupiter often takes a journey from shrine to shrine, temple to temple, big meeting places. His ideas are often sourced by people met along the way. Neptune often goes to retreats, the ashram, and stays for various lengths of time, even years, sometimes taking silence, no connections to the outside world and not missing them. Jupiter feels lost without his companion, his spiritual guide, abandoned. Sometimes the Saint, the Neptune Dreamer, needs to be rescued from himself. If the meditation, the ashram, becomes an escape, it’s time for Sag therapy! How much do we believe in that vision anyway?! It’s time for the Sag master plan to make it come true! Neptune’s finely calibrated awareness fine tunes the progress, not missing a trick. And he shows Sag how to take time out now and again. It’s ok to just lay that glorious Sag body down for a good rest, have a few dreams of his own…

With both planets being in changeable signs, it’s like shifting sands, you never know what to expect of them, or they of each other! Tough to nail this one down. But then it isn’t meant to be, is it?! A good dose of unsurety, makes us look about for more answers. We find opportunities we hadn’t thought to look for before! One of the beauties of this combination is their adaptability! They adapt to people, circumstances, adjust to project changes. Jupiter sees the future perfect and keeps that a priority. Pisces keeps the even longer future in mind, the future of the Soul, many lifetimes. It keeps relativity to the highest good for humanity in mind. As we go along, it fixes old relapses that can occur, reminding us to keep our Spirit clean of subtle debris that would slow us down or obscure our vision. Addictions of any kind, food, drugs, even a particular form of spirituality overdone, won’t do. Moderation helps. Keep moving. Keep learning.

When these two roll together it’s like a seal and an otter, a sight to see! Jupiter is athletic, has a healthy stride, and goes the distance! In summer it might be surfing, in winter snowboarding the slopes! Neptune loves water sports, swims like a fish, water skis, races yachts, surfs worldwide, ice skates the lakes in the winter! Each takes the other places they have never been to before. Glorious!

At its best, Jupiter square Neptune will offer astounding leadership, impressionable people will be enamored with the new stranger in town. Turns out what Jupiter offered will not be perfect, but it will make us think, and we won’t be the same when he’s gone. The gate has opened, no going back to the way it used to be. Since Sag and Pisces are mutable, adaptable signs, it will be surprising how much we can take in during a short visit! We will make it our own.


The greater viewpoint in time…

Since Jupiter and Saturn are paired this year aspecting Neptune, Jupiter squaring Neptune being the first aspect of the year, Jan 13 is important! Jupiter squares Neptune three times in 2019. It is the first aspect of the year, Jan 13! It’s retrograde aspect is June 16, and the final aspect Sep 21. Each of those aspects is followed by a Saturn sextile Neptune, Jan 31, Rx June 18, and Nov 8. ALL three of these planets are potently in their own signs, each the expert of their place, holding purity! Jupiter might discover Neptune nattering quietly along unsung. Jupiter may question the truth of Neptune’s incredible dreams, but soon finds himself expanding the vision, enhancing what it offers! Jupiter is a natural born promoter! He just has to bring Neptune up to speed, to believe in the bigger picture! Saturn the Builder determines what’s possible and figures out how to do it! Too good to pass up.

The June 16 and 18 Jupiter/Saturn retrograde aspects are very close. They are particularly important since the 16 and 18 events are at the 18th degree, the degree that links Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit of Mercury. They are intensified by the Gemini/Sagittarius Full Strawberry Moon right between them June 17! That Moon wants info from the horse’s mouth, to know what it means and the plan for what’s ahead! It gets the Word out!

These six aspects finish Nov 8, just before the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! The uncommon Transit of Mercury occurs on average 13 times a century, so the connections to Neptune are important. They help us have clear vision to understand the Transit and express its messages. The Transit of Mercury holds an unusual status in being connected with the 248 YEARS Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!  Mercury will have stored up the data as it observed Pluto, before and after, seeing what it meant to people and what they did with it. The Transit is when Mercury crosses the Sun’s face. Mercury will be infused with Solar Light, the highest power energy of our Solar system! It will be the dynamic Messenger to explain more of the Pluto event. It will set key information into pivotal points, the most functional places. Jupiter at the Galactic Center will be infused with the Light of Galaxies, linking heaven and earth!

These in turn prepare the way for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! 

The Ecliptic crossing was at 18 Capricorn 58; the Transit of Mercury is at 18 Scorpio 56! The June 16 and 18 Neptune activations are at 18 Sagittarius/Capricorn 43!  They are all at the same degree! You with chart factors at 17, 18, 19 were, and still will be strongly connected, especially those of you with your factors in any of those three signs. Though the dates are not in zodiacal order, the signs involved are – Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn! That makes Sagittarius in the important position of being the midpoint sign, equidistant from the other two! Factors that are midpoint equidistant have double potency, their contribution equally distributed, shared with two, sometimes more, other planets! The midpoint sign/factor(s) are in turn receiving from two different sources equally, they expanding the range and knowledge of the midpoint factors! Some of that is the potency of time tested historical proceedings; some is an invite to future possibilities!

Timetable summary of upcoming events:

  1. First was the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto Ecliptic crossing 18 Capricorn, an old Shaman Master of many dimensions.
  2. The 2019 first ten month’s transits to Neptune made by Jupiter in Sagittarius and Saturn in Capricorn prime us for teaching, spreading informations succinctly far and wide by the most efficient means possible! The network is being set up. It will have a lot more to carry after the Transit. Pay special attention to June 16, 17 and 18 at 18 Pisces!
  3. The Nov 11 Transit of Mercury is 18 Scorpio, Pluto’s sign! Mercury is the Word, and in Scorpio it delves deep into the powers of things, each of us and our interactions. It is powerfully backed by the Light of Lights, our SUN! It disperses the information Sun infuses through it.
  4. Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center Nov 19 is the sister aspect to the Transit of Mercury, only a few day later. It stupendously connects Heaven and Earth!
  5. These in turn prepare the way for the 1.12.2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto at 22 Capricorn and Mar 21 The Crown – the final 3 outer planet Capricorn stellium! See more!
  6. Last is the 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto set. The set’s final aspect is Nov 12 at 22 Capricorn, the SAME degree and sign as the 1.12.2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto! It is the closest aspect to the Nov 3 Presidential Elections.

Believe in yourself and the magic of divine order.

Mercury Retrograde Sagittarius Sauk Mountain Switchbacks

Sauk Mountain Trail Switchbacks, Rockport Washington 1,100′ Elevation gain

This is the last Mercury Retrograde of 2017! The next one will be in March 2018 in Aries, another fire sign! Revisions will be spirited! Last Rx, Leo/Virgo, I touted as the most significant of 2017 due to the US Total Solar Eclipse during the Rx and all the New & Full Moon connections! This one is important because it hosts Saturn’s 29 year sign connection with the Galactic Center, and its change from Sagittarius into its own sign Capricorn! Mercury guides us across this threshold, stirring things up so we see the living process of Father Time’s sign change.

While Saturn is still in Sagittarius, it is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER, 26 Sagittarius, Nov 15 to 23! The Mercury Rx cycles starts Nov 15, so for the first 8 days of the Rx cycle, it is a time of ‘huge infusion,’ the portal to and through the Galaxy and beyond is available! And, the Nov 18 Scorpio New Moon makes us a more sensitive receiver, deepens our perceptions. Dec 17 the Sun makes its annual conjunction with the GC, but this time its the Sagittarius New Moon, Moon and Sun, AT the GC! Since it is during Mercury retrograde, it performs some kind of a retrieval, a remembrance, revives something that must be updated, regathered and not left behind.

In those 8 days Saturn is at the GC, Mercury is 13 to 24 degrees Sagittarius. Mercury will recross those degrees twice more, retrograde Dec 10-22, then when forward Dec 22 to Jan 6, finishing the Mercury Rx cycle. Mercury will itself conjunct the GC 3 times – Nov 26/27, Rx Dec 8 and Jan 7/8, 2018. At the times Mercury is in the degrees it was at when Saturn was at the GC, and when Mercury conjuncts the GC, take special time to check in, be more alert to signs. Ask that the highest be done and that you be shown how to get there, whether it is personal or for the world. Blessed be.

Switchbacks, retrogrades, make it easy to get up the mountain, make it possible! This Rx is in Sagittarius, and Sagittarius would surely be going up as the ascending arrow, its sign symbol, indicates. You do need to be careful that you don’t kick rocks off the trail, as there are often others below you.

As you ascend, the Sagittarian view just keeps getting bigger, more expansive, inclusive. You get a picture of the layout of the land and where the people are. You make adjustments in your thinking and attention. Unless you have been on that trail before, it’s still a guess if the next rise is the top or a false top with more yet to go. At the top it can be exhilarating, even if it is plenty hot, or cold as all get out plus a dangerous icy wind and slippery! Sometimes it’s a languishing picnic, fill-your-eyes rest stop, pictures of all directions, poses of prowess! Other times it’s a quick snap, we made it, let’s get down outta here! But you did it!

Use retrogrades fully by being alert, open to the broader view, new opportunities. As with mountain hikes, there are new visions around the corner, greater options possible, because the other planets keep right on moving, while Mercury is refreshing the screen and thinking things through. One step leads to another. Things absolutely do change! They are supposed to.

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Nov 15 at 13 Sag. Mercury goes up to 29 Sag, the very end of Sag, and retrogrades Dec 2, back to 13. He then turns forward, direct, Dec 22, the day after Winter Solstice (Saturn newly in Capricorn as of Dec 19) and goes back to 29 Sag on Jan 10, 2018, crosses the threshold into Capricorn that very day, and continues on into the New Year.

The Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sag and Pisces will be challenged. Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn prefer things stable and steady, but they are not exempt. Other fire, Aries and Leo, and air signs, Libra and Aquarius, will enjoy the shifts and changes! Mercury will midpoint sextile connect with Libra and Aquarius acting as their go between, plugging in astounding ideas just as fast as they can take them in. Have a party with all your Libra, Sag and AQ friends!

If the retrograde connects with your chart, here are some good tips!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – with Sag, that especially means vehicles, travel conveyances and image devices – cameras, video, telescopes, cell phones. Get new apps well in advance, and learn to use them with ease. Be sure traveling companions have all their shots, including your pets. Have your schedule handy. Keep your goals in mind, though don’t be surprised if they suddenly change directions!

During the retrograde, keep irreplaceable valuables with you. No stowing with your luggage in the hold. No important papers tossed in the backseat because you are in a hurry. Keep your keys in mind, slow down and don’t lock them in the car! You could temporarily put them on a tether device around your neck – glasses too. Mercury Rx is famous for losing things, though sometimes something lost in the last Rx turns up in the current one! Don’t forget to immediately change your appt book the minute an adjustment is made in your timing. Call in advance to be certain you are scheduled and at the time you think the appt is. Scout about for paperwork needed at least the day before. Do get people to sign things that need to be signed, including yourself! Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done Jan 10!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Sagittarians believe in big and better, but due to no fault of their own, things change and the deal can’t be made after all. They didn’t lie, they just didn’t know. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.  However, if one falls through, an even better one can happen! One just clears the way or leads to the next!

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas go up in flames, especially in Sagittarius, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at what you are left with, polish it, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and invite those people traveling your way. Hear them all out and merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

There are three important outer planet factors during this Retrograde cycle! That’s not common since outer planets move more slowly. Here’s the timetable:

Nov 15 to 23 Saturn at Galactic Center degree, Mercury is at 13 to 24 degrees Sag
Nov 15  Mercury Retrograde starts first phase
Nov 18  Scorpio New Moon
Nov 25  1st Mercury trine Uranus
Nov 26/27 Mercury at Galactic Center degree
Nov 27  1st Mercury conjunct Saturn, Sagittarius

Dec   2  Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces 6:22 PM More
Dec   2  RETROGRADE starts 11:34 PM Pacific
Dec   3  Full Long Night Cold Moon 7:47 AM Pacific

Dec   6  2nd Mercury conjunct Saturn, Sagittarius
Dec   8  2nd Mercury conjunct Galactic Center
Dec 10  2nd Mercury trine Uranus
Dec 10-Jan 6  Mercury 24 to 13 to 24, the degrees when Saturn was at 26 Sag/GC

Dec 17  Galactic Center 26 Sagittarius New Moon during Rx
Dec 19  Saturn into own sign Capricorn! 29 Year event! More
Dec 21  Happy Winter Solstice, Sun in Capricorn! 8:29 AM Pacific
Dec 22  RETROGRADE ends! Mercury turns forward, Direct 5:51 PM Pacific

Jan   6  3rd Mercury trine Uranus
Jan 7/8 3rd Mercury conjunct GC

Jan  10  Three part cycle finishes, Mercury goes into Capricorn 9:09 PM Pacific
Jan  12  3rd Mercury conjunct Saturn, Capricorn
Jan  15  1st Jupiter sextile Pluto More on this soon….
Jan  16  Capricorn New Moon

RETROGRADE starts Dec 2 the same day as Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, trines Neptune. It is considered a Dreams-come-true aspect, travel and Soul healing. A good time to consult the Oracle’s Oracle, yet with Mercury starting his journey, all will not come out as predicted! Mercury in Sagittarius can lead Scorpio on, both can be a bit of tricksters. Mercury by nature, ruling Virgo, is opposite Pisces. Mercury co-rules Gemini, square Pisces, and in Sagittarius square Pisces, reports may be difficult to confirm, and even if confirmed, are not solid indicators. And yet Jupiter trine Neptune is considered wondrous, capable of significant miracles and psychic! Go eyes open, trust your core.

To add to it, the Dec 3 Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon follows the next day! Gemini Moon sees a thousand facets; Sun in Sagittarius tries to gather them to a focus. Moon is intuitional and she knows when things are not in divine order in communications. She can be protective of the information held close to her bosom though Sag tries to tease her to tell. Mercury has two signs, Gemini is one. So he now in Sagittarius opposite Gemini, is at his most extensive range, with the Sun, is also circling for clues. Another scenario might be Sag is a bit opinionated; Moon floods him with ideas and data that alter his point of view. Moon provides vital information; Sagittarius takes it with him for upleveling, pondering as he goes. Mercury observes the exchange, new chapters will be written!

Saturn changes the game by leaving Sagittarius and going into his own sign Capricorn December 19 3 days before the Retrograde ends! That’s during the 8 day Rx/Direct (forward) station when Mercury appears to ‘stand still’ in the sky. There is a holding tank of information, a focus, a concentration of thought, an anchoring of ideas. With Saturn in Cap a serious tone descends. More is expected. It’s not just fun and contemplation. Things need to get done, responsibilities taken, papers signed. Saturn builds strong, expects you to exceed your past. They will help you if they can. Winter Solstice adds the Sun into Capricorn the day before Mercury turns Direct (out of Rx). Mercury instantly senses the shift and knows he needs to backup his hopes with solid evidence if possible to carry on, cross the breach, be in sync with the tidal shift.

At first he may not seem to catch on or keep up because he is in Station, standing still, 4 days before and after the turn point. He’s absorbing, assimilating, focusing, anchoring the plans. At this sacred time of Winter Solstice, the longest Nights, Mercury’s ideas and thinking patterns will be deepened, fortified. No matter how much Saturn may want Mercury on board, the plans that have been made, after much consideration, are not to be abandoned. Mercury will be holding the Sag Light until Jan 10, when he crosses the line into Capricorn to join Saturn. See more about Saturn’s sign shift

The three part cycle finishes the same day Mercury joins Saturn in Capricorn Jan 10. Mercury conjuncts Saturn Jan 12, Jupiter sextiles Pluto Jan 15! When it’s done, it’s done! Mercury, the Communicator, now out of Sag and in Capricorn, can present his ideas to Saturn in the way Saturn can understand since his sign is Capricorn! It will be up front and personal Jan 12 when they are together. Jupiter sextile Pluto wants volumes of healing, both personal, as couples and business partners. Jupiter knows when he has a tough room, yet he is amazing at telling the funny story and making them laugh anyway. He also knows when trust is an issue. Now in Scorpio, Jupiter knows about Pluto only too well. And Pluto in Capricorn is rarely fooled or made to do anything he doesn’t want to. Mercury is intrigued by seeing Jupiter at work, and may offer Jupiter some data to help his presentation, request. Mercury may offer Pluto some quick but pivotal advice, and bingo, Pluto is on board and it’s a good deal!

Mercury repeats aspects to Saturn and Uranus….

Throughout the cycle, Mercury trines Uranus three times! Mercury is the thinking process; Uranus is considered to be higher mind, how to join many souls, worldwide networks to promote both rational and etheric thought. Mercury in Sagittarius expands principles of attention and expression to intrigue Souls to gather ’round! Already the process is started by coaching by example as thoughts are shared and upleveled, hope instilled, having a steady outlook. Uranus is the Light and Sound waves that carry group thought around the world, brings R/Evolution. It invents options like the Internet, and planes, and one day we will have teleportation. Let your mind shift freely. Tune in.

Mercury does conjunct Saturn three times. The first two are in Sagittarius, but the third, however, is in Capricorn two days after the Mercury Rx cycle is complete! While in Sag, Mercury consults with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, then, because Saturn changes signs mid Rx, Mercury completes the conjunctions when Saturn is at his full power! First Mercury speculates in Sag, then after all is said and done, commits to the chosen Path in Capricorn. He works hard gathering data so choices will be informed, no time wasted. Mercury is not always serious, sometimes mischievous, but in Capricorn he focuses as it life depended on it, and sometimes it does! Blessed be.

Mercury aspecting Saturn and Uranus, triggers awareness of how precious our commitments are and how much we need freedom too. Saturn holds us together and stabilizes our communities, at times our very survival. Uranus invites innovation, change, evolution, sometimes on a large scale with far reaching effects! Networking, connection is a potent and necessary life force, sometimes uniting us internationally. Intentionally we can breathe together collectively, securing our survival in the future as well!

Sagittarius, this Mercury retrograde’s sign, is a student, a teacher, traveler of mind and body, has long term purpose in mind, great faith in the future. Confidence abounds, risks are taken and often succeed! They are super storytellers, often published!  Sagittarius will hold the compass and keep us on course. Even if they lose the compass, they were born with directional instinct. Trust it. When it all seems too much, they will tell stories of heroes and heroines and hope is restored! They speak of the achievement of our dreams, what that will look like. We are guided to make the best choices to get us there, step by step we go on. Walk the Path together.

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

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

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New SuperMoon! Mars TSquare! Saturn at GALACTIC CENTER!

Thursday May 25, 12.44 PM Pacific at 4 Gemini 47!

The Milky Way arches over Capitol Reef National Park’s iconic Chimney Rock. Photo by Jacob W. Frank. Communication between Heaven and Earth….

Our May new SuperMoon is the second of three in a row 2017 New SuperMoons, the closest supermoon of the year! We may experience higher tides in our thinking, excited about new ideas that merge and spread. Grads will find themselves thinking about whether to go on with school, where to go, what to do! It may be a little overwhelming for everyone.

Only a week ago we finished the exact Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus May 17 and 18. Jupiter inconjunct Neptune will stay with us until July 4, 48 days! It is what we call being in Station, at the turn of Jupiter’s retrograde to direct/forward. It turns forward on the June 9 Full Strawberry – Rose Moon! Every New and Full Moon through the July 8 Full Buck Moon will have this aspect strongly.

The New Moon is not in close degrees with the Jupiter inconjunct, nor is it making any close aspects to any other planets. It stands on its own. Moon is Mother nurturer and at New Moons feeds Father Sun. In Gemini you can bet it is alphabet soup! She whispers tiny thoughts to take his mind off things, sings faery songs, dances in the light, does the crossword puzzle with him at the breakfast table. She makes a quick run, checks the neighbors cat on her way home. Then they are off for the day, gathering choice bits of information here and there. A few errands, home for dinner and a quick exchange of hugs and updates. A settle in or friends over. Sweet dreams, talking in your sleep.

There are lots of connections at 19 and among the 20s degree planets.

Venus Squares Pluto. Love is being tested. Pluto in Capricorn claims experience and age on his side. Venus in Aries stamps her foot, wants what she wants right now and is willing to fight about it. Pulling rank doesn’t fly with her. She’s wanting what’s new, to take a risk. He’s wanting the way it has been or the most practical at the least cost. It will take some give and take plus a little time to work it out.

Jupiter in Libra inconjuncts that Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter shifts gears, directions and alliances. Good thing Neptune is quick on the uptake and understands most of the time. Jupiter likes social chatting and international conditions. There are times Pisces prefers solitude, to gently contemplate freely, making associations of mind and Spirit. He seeks intuition rather than advice from well dressed experts. Yet both have their truths and offerings. Important not to judge or to slur each other’s style. Sometimes legal matters take precedence, other times it’s the Court of Heaven that offers insight to the right thing to do. Rather than living in self chosen poverty, as Pisces can sometimes do, Jupiter in Libra leads us to the right school that brings you to the door of happiness doing what you always wanted to do! Could be art, music, design, being with people who celebrate exactly who you are!

Mercury in Taurus sextiles Neptune! Time to get the word out. Go to the specialty school. Let the dream come true, find it a safe place, a home to grow in. Along with your fine intuition, get steady in the work. A bit at a time will do nicely. Be patient, speak kindly, but say it. Be there.

Mars in Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries! Now that’s Spark! Mars is the planet of Aries! It loves to be first, an innovator, the consultant. In Gemini it loves variety, to move and mutate, adapt and deliver! Uranus is the ultimate lead, a planet of friendship, community purpose, internet, worldwide flight and organizations for the best and betterment for all! Mars will never be bored and never be done with all that potential! Uranus will be thrilled with the new kid on the block, how quickly ideas are put together. Occasionally things may be a bit premature, but you gotta laugh at the delight as new things are tested, corrected, attempted again until they get it right! Time to celebrate!

Mars Mutables TSquare with Chiron and Saturn

Mars squares Chiron in Pisces. Mars may be stunned by how Chiron’s feelings might have been hurt, and back away. Chiron may be thinking how Mars didn’t realize there could be a lack of health or physical ability, a thoughtless statement made. Whoa! Let’s all backup a bit. Slow it down. Mars in Gemini isn’t known for patience, so keep to short sentences, statements and requests. Agree to meet again very soon. Due to the differences in tempos, it may end with an agreement to let go of your connection for now. But if possible, let’s not let this fester and lose each other entirely. Be friends but not work together? Aside from this, there could be injuries to hands or feet. Burns, rashes. Or Mars jumps in with new remedies that are remarkable!

Saturn and Chiron are separating their square by 2 degrees now. They will be back but not until Nov 2. There is going to be plenty of time to think things over after the April 30 square. This is not considered an easy aspect, some even call it a ‘heartbreak’ aspect, tough on relationships if the degrees activate your chart in the romance dept. Losses can be formidable seeming whether in love, health or business. Maybe you got in over your head, need to back up, slow down. Saturn in Sagittarius can be opinionated, a demanding instructor, intimidating. Or he can make you work extra hard to get things done and you’re glad that he did, couldn’t have done it by yourself. Back to school and on your feet. Chiron can be a weak spot, and you may be embarrassed for it, even in denial. But if you are facing up to it, Saturn can help you get over that threshold too! Might not be fun, but a huge relief. Did it once, can do it again. See more, #3 at this link

Mars is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! If Saturn isn’t fast enough, Mars has got his boots on to give a forward kick to speed things up! Saturn is faster in Sagittarius, but Mars is in Gemini, the combination that is if you think it, you do it, now! Mars may have terrific ideas, but Saturn, the wise TaskMaster, knows the order of things, how to conserve energy and place it accurately both in time and space. To Mars it may feel like running into a brick wall, and it may be a lifesaving event! On the other hand, what brick wall wasn’t meant to be scaled with one flying leap?! If that Mars spunk is right, Saturn may wish he went too!

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close trine, but retrograding away from Uranus. Work and education, friendships and networking expanding the opportunities! Cross cultural expeditions bring new products. Uranus in Aries researches, has breakthroughs, uncanny knowledge that spikes more trials. Innovative solutions occur step after step. It just keeps going! Real estate demographics change. Professional goals broaden. Aging brings more satisfaction than ever. See more, #1 at this link

Uranus is strong at 26 Aries, trining the GALACTIC CENTER, GC, at 26 Sagittarius, where Saturn is now sitting! Saturn is holding the fort, protecting the treasures of our Universe, metering the exchange. Uranus is the planet of the heavens, the electric and eclectic keeper of the Sacred Akashic Records of our Souls! Saturn is the planet of archaeology, ruler of Time, ageless Wisdom. Uranus, ruler of airplanes and the Internet wants to uplift the nature of the lineage of the records, include more of our connections with the fringes, explore possible galactic alliances, changes that are currently beyond our wildest thoughts. Saturn steadies the ship while Uranus amps up the sizzle, electricity, shimmer and valences. Some of that will attract travelers from beyond!

Though a lot feels uncertain these days, know that we are cosmically right on course!

Full Strawberry – Rose Moon!
Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune Station, Jupiter Direct!
Galactic Center, Fixed Star Rigel!

Friday June 9, 6:10 AM Pacific at 18 Sagittarius 53

Gemini Strawberry Full Moon NYC Boni de Oliveira

42nd Street. New York City’s version of Gemini, glowing with the ultimate urban twins, framing a delicious “strawberry moon” on ‪Summer Solstice‬ 2016, the longest and brightest day of the year! Magnificent photo by Bruno Boni de Oliveira. 

Gemini-Sagittarius is according to some spiritual systems the axis of Humanity, the Moon of Metropolis! The Good Word is spread near and far, no Soul neglected!

Orion’s Fixed Star Rigel was at 17 Gemini 02 in 2014, less than two degrees of the Sun/Full Moon axis and inconjunct Pluto. With the Sun, it is potent, noted for being lucky in enterprise, has technical and artistic ability, loves to gain wisdom and knowledge and to spread it to others as well. It has strong will power, love of action! Other factors being well, it can bring fame. If not well, it may be reckless and foolhardy. The Moon may feel deluged with words, though the Moon in Sagittarius may be hugely curious and ready to tag along just to see what will happen! Askew with Pluto may dredge up old obsessions that need clearing, free powers that have been abandoned, forgotten. Now they may be tempted to come back into the Light! Things might be more safe than they used to be.

This 18 degree Sun/Moon axis was with Jupiter, trine and sextile. Sun was lighting the way, charging the valence with Jupiter in Libra May 29 to June 3! Invitations were extended, meetings held, liaisons made, balance sought, honors awarded! Moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign, sextiled Jupiter June 8 at 6:45 PM Pacific, remembering, confidence and optimism reestablished, hope restored! Jupiter being in Station, standing still, has kept that focus. TODAY, at 7:04 AM, less than an hour after the Full Moon, Jupiter turns Direct/forward! Gradually energy of the previous days will be released!

Sun and Moon are in the SAME degree with Pluto in Capricorn. There is a test. Sun in Gemini is aware that certain things are not to be said, others to be revealed in a good way. Some things are universal property, others are personal, not to be stolen or copied. No pickpockets while traveling, take precautions. No uninvited picking people’s minds, or uninvited psychic mind reading. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t make it right. Moon in Sagittarius is a Seeker, comforting people with perspective, enjoying diversity wherever it goes. It shares what it has learned, dispersing knowledge and insights. Pluto in Capricorn may not trust such generosity. Time is their test; do you prove true. And so with your ideas. Cap wonders if it is too good to be true, too lightweight to endure in service. Jot down the ideas, test a little at a time. The Moon in Sag may be long gone, but unbeknownst to them the ideas may live on with you quite well.

Mama Moon and Father Time Saturn are having a meeting! Moon is moving forward, Saturn is retrograding back to her! They make their conjunction 6:19 PM Pacific after the Full Moon. They represent home and family, unconditional love and support and our professional standing, the breadwinner, builder. Each cares deeply, lives in the responsibilities of life. In Sagittarius that may center around education, important tenets of our ethics, justice, our ability to broaden our territory or keep an open mind. Sometimes when Moon is with Saturn she is sad, afraid he won’t be able to live up to his goals. In generally cheerful Sagittarius, temporarily her spirits may be a bit down. Yet though she may seem a bit emotional, exuberant over the top to him, he is cheered by her presence, in fact, a godsend!

Venus, Mercury and Mars are having a threesome! Venus is happy in her own sign Taurus, glad for a hug! Mercury is in one of his own signs also, Gemini! So MUCH to think about, speak of, listen to! Mars is the rights fighter in Cancer, the champion standing up for women and children. He finds you a new home immediately! They are at 3 and 4 degrees, Mercury right in the middle, semi sextile midpoint both Venus and Mars, the lovers! Uh, phone sex could be the best! :) Meet you later! Venus is scanning for values, beauty, a strong foundation, solid business. Sextile Mars in Cancer there is potential as a provider, possibly they can make a home together, definitely he may be the leader for her cause! Gemini wants to talk it over. Consult neighbors and siblings. Get data to backup ideas. If it proves feasible, it’s contract time!

The Galactic Center is still involved with our lunar events! See more This time it is in a Grand Fire Trine! Uranus is at 27 Aries, the Galactic Center is at 26 Sagittarius – Saturn still very close! The grand fire trine is completed by the North Node right on the money at 26 Leo! The North Node in Leo takes us to the Heart of creative expression, each giving their special gift. Uranus in Aries, the first sign, is the spark that ignites the web, the Internet of Consciousness! The Galactic Center in Sagittarius raises our perception! We ascend to a greater vision, see what is coming, and it doesn’t seem so far away after all!

Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is still the outer planet aspect that is the backdrop for our lunar charts. It started May 10, and will continue through the July 8 Full Buck Moon. Jupiter in Libra is like tilting the tides of humanity back and forth until the remaining ones stand at the center, able to be stable as the world shifts around them. Jupiter always looks for the best, finely tuned in Libra! Neptune in Pisces runs the tides and shifts the sand we stand on. We need to be able to not just stand, but to flow, to compensate, at times swim and merge with higher powers. Adjustments can be made fluidly. Dreams can come true as we learn divine navigation.

Gemini/Sagittarius! Gemini is the Word! In this case it is carried by the Full Moon Sun, the Heart. Core communications carry an essence of truth, a deeper meaningfulness that attracts fellow beings that are on the same Path. Sagittarius observes from the vantage point of the Moon, intuitive cycles, natural rhythms. Our purpose becomes more clear as we let some ventures fade, while others fill us with joy. The journey is embraced. We may start with babble and gossip, but we grow. We sort out or try out many possibilities, coming to learn which have potential. Our choices start to seem to have a luck about them. Sagittarius naturally senses what to follow, where to go, which will get us to the future that fits. Sharing our stories keeps us on the road, our own personal planetary grid. Gemini is the expert of linkage. If there is a breakdown in the system, they just know. Off they go to make the repair. Sagittarius might do an on-the-spot reroute as conditions change. They work together quite well.

May your journeys be entirely inspiring!

Overview of 2017 Planetary Backdrop 

2017 opens with three outer planets in Cardinal signs: Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Libra, his opposite, invites, greets and makes introductions. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. Together, we are inspired, form lasting unions. Saturn and Neptune remain in Mutable signs Sagittarius and Pisces. Flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems will change, be more accommodating, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Saturn and Neptune, Dharma and Spirit, blend and bind us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone.

The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! See more

The six aspects that started Oct 23, 2016, repeat twice and continue through Nov 11, 2017. The challenging aspects run through Nov 2. Of 14 2017 aspects, 4 are considered favorable. The aspects span from 11 degrees to 27 degrees, so likely all of us will be activated one time or another. Jupiter, the fastest of the outer planets, makes 10 of these 14 aspects; Saturn makes the other 4. Continue to make sustainable living choices. Be ready and flexible for lots of changes.

Many are waiting, getting poised for the phenomenal 2018 sweep of positive aspects! There are way fewer aspects! It has 6 favorable, only 1 difficult at the end of the year. Jupiter is making ALL the aspects! There are a LOT of sign changes, FIVE! That will more than stir the brew! Don’t expect things to be settled, but the changes bode well, new times! Live closely now so you are free to invest in 2018.

Sign Changes

Sign changes set the tone of and standards for the year. The first sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Libra establishes fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be deepened. Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to make a significant Capricorn achievement.

For most of the year, until October, Jupiter and Saturn are in Libra and Sagittarius, outgoing and curious. Then Jupiter goes into Scorpio and it can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time. After we get used to this change of venue, Saturn finally makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter and Saturn change Signs. Jupiter starts in Libra. See Jupiter into LIBRA! Libras work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! October 10, Jupiter enters Scorpio and goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, funding, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality, some relationships will be left behind, others renewed and rededicated.

Jupiter makes 4 aspects, and Saturn makes 2 aspects, that started late 2016, open 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set is Jupiter opposition Uranus that finishes the Jupiter set Sep 27. The Saturn pair finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!  Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus is the first aspect of a year long series of 2017-18 positive aspects beginning Nov 11! Uranus is the planet of Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. We can be the different specialist person we were born to be! Conversely, sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

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


A look at 2017 Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

2017 opens the day after the Dec 31, 2016 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron. They will stay close until the second exact aspect Feb 4 2017. The 2016 Oct to Dec Jupiter set – inconjunct Neptune, square Pluto, opposite Uranus and inconjunct Chiron – will reverse through these 4 aspects through mid May holding the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune closely until July 4! It finishes the set entirely wildly Sep 27 opposite Uranus! The retrograde/direct turning points, adjustment making inconjuncts with Chiron and Neptune, are important because of the duration they are held and that they are turning points. Major aspect Jupiter opposite Uranus is super charged, expect bold changes! Jupiter square Pluto was the prominent Presidential Election aspect and holds the keys to the financial kingdom!

Jupiter square Pluto and opposition Uranus, makes a framework for several provocative Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross as Moon, Sun, Mercury or Venus move through Aries. The Feb 26th 22 degree Mars exact conjunction Uranus, plus they opposite Jupiter should be spectacular to say the least! Make sure your insurance is up to date and comprehensive, covers fire/heat and electronics/electricity – wiring, explosions. Earlier in the day of the April 10 Aries/Libra FULL MOON, the Moon and Sun straddle the Jupiter opposition Uranus axis! Extraordinary proportions and options!

Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Careers and businesses will be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Times change. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The May 18 second and Nov 11 last trine to Uranus will occur at the degree of the Galactic Center! The square and trines were only 4 days apart, finishing aspects at Christmas 2016, and make their third and last aspects quite closely again Nov 2 and 11, 2017. That Nov 11 aspect launches a year of uninterrupted classically favorable aspects!

Uranus and Chiron will be aspected 4 times each. Healing change. Businesses will be called to be more inclusive of all beings, broadened by their new connections.

The last aspect of 2017 is Jupiter trine Neptune Dec 2! Let the magical journey begin! Saturn changes signs, into it’s own sober and mighty productive sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! Some say Solstice is the true New Year.

Uranus square Pluto is in its LAST 5 degree period of that square! It is in a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind.
 
In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! The exact 2017 dates are July 29 and Dec 28.

Be well, well loved, may you prosper, and all your good works be blessed….
