Stand tall, Live deep, Love well!

June 21 we finished the last day of the Mercury in Cancer Grand square with Uranus, Pluto and Saturn. Some communications were stressed; there were some breakthroughs, there is still some fallout from decisions made at that time, regrets over contracts made or not made. This Grand Square was the first activation, of the SEVEN time Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. This was the first grand square formed with these planets since Uranus came within 5 degrees of its square to Pluto in the last week of April 2011. This long time, continuous Uranus square Pluto won’t become exact until June 23, 2012! It will continue in a 5 degree or less square with Pluto the entire time until June of 2015! Currently, the Uranus square Pluto has been further activated by two more Grand Squares.  The Sun in Cancer is finishing the June 26 to July 2 set, and will be followed by the Venus in Cancer set, July 7 to 13. Last, during Leo, Saturn having moved on, Mars in Cancer will T Square the remaining Uranus square Pluto August 9/10. Then, the Uranus square Pluto will be fully activated, charged! So, four planets, four different ways of doing, kinds of energy, are in process of activating the Uranus/Pluto square.

These 4 planets are adding the 4th component to the Grand Square, Cancer.  In the US, that is Mama Liberty that stands at our New York gateway, indicating giving shelter, a home that may be far away from loved ones.  Cancer is Mother’s love, unfailing or abandoned, skilled or doing the best one can.  Cancer provides a home in the Soul, and a homestead when possible.  It’s a water sign, irrigates the crops, keeps the nutrients coming.  Emotional, Cancer is onboard with how people are feeling, in sync with natural cycles, number one in business, great at the stock market!  Consumables are its best business, the things we need to live – clothing, food, toothpaste, home furnishings, storage devices, and especially, kitchen items.  These 4 planets ‘speak’ in behalf of our daily needs, a cherished regard that makes our flower bloom.

The Grand Square series opened with Mercury, amazing exchanges of information.  The Sun is bringing a more tender and personal yet creative perception.  Venus will add a touch of sweet, a more kindly attractive rendering.  All have been and will be tempered by Saturn in Libra’s standards, perhaps a taste of reluctance or caution! Mars will have no such constraints as Saturn shall have moved on out of the Grand Square. Mars will spontaneously act in behalf of potential being born right before our eyes! Blending old structures with new internet and electronics, resurrecting forgotten inventions and inventories, deconstructing and reusing secret resources and alliances, thinking 100s of years ahead, will be valuable skills. Retirement opportunities will be like never before. New careers will be invented at a breathtaking pace! The role of Fatherhood and Manhood will be relieved and enhanced. Archaeology will reveal further profound information.

This Uranus square Pluto goes through June of 2015. The face of governments will go dramatically toward sustainability. Protecting green assets and water will become more important than protecting oil interests.  Concerns of right and reasonable uses of resources will be at the top of our list.

May we meet all our challenges, may it go well with you.

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

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

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

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

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

Robert Pattinson

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

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

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

Now for some odd Taurus stats from Security Gripes:

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

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

Neptune

April 12, Saturn inconjuncted Chiron the 4th of 5 times, now Saturn is about to inconjunct Neptune the 2nd of 3 times – this pattern will be finishing late June, and late July.  Chiron and Neptune have been traveling withing 5 degrees of each other since March 2008!  Saturn joined them August 2009, requesting them to do the work of their complaints, even an inch at a time, grounding the etheric, our thinking, into living our dreams every day.  One solution might be sustainable business with several of its parts contributing different cash flows as the ‘waste’ of one product of one part of the system becomes another product!?       

Because Uranus and Pluto are traveling in close degrees with Chiron & Neptune, all four of these planets have been and are activated by Saturn as Saturn goes through the late degrees of Virgo, and first two degrees of Libra.  The entire pattern is in its last 4 months:      

  • May 2 Saturn inconjunct Neptune
  • June 27 third Saturn inconjunct Neptune, of dreams and ideals
  • July 20 5th of 5 Saturn inconjunct Chiron, the healer, of wounded dreams, then teacher of the cures – then, within a few days,
  • July 26 5th of 5 Saturn opposite Uranus, changer of the way we make connections, creator of teams, from local to global
  • August 21 Saturn square Pluto, for the last aspect of the pattern, and grand finale!  Perhaps ’tis only fitting the last aspect is to Pluto, our furthest planet out; Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth!

Pay special attention to the July 20 and July 26 aspects because they are part of the July 20 through August 3 aspects that promise intensity because we have two sign changes into air signs, six outer planet factors one right after the other, and the intense eleven day Jupiter station square Pluto with the last Saturn opposition Uranus between them!  Believe me, for those of you with charts activated by these aspects, there will be endings and beginnings, mighty house cleanings for a clean new start!!  This is all a very natural part of life.  Sometimes we have been drowning in our own debris and didn’t even know it, or sometimes it takes this much intensity, especially for us fixed sign people (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), to break us free from our patterns.  It gives us a little kick start that tips us over our resistance.  To heck with fears of incompetency, we will flounder forward if necessary!  It’s not like we are all alone; there are a lot of others breaking new ground right there beside us!      

  • July 20 Chiron retrograde re-enters Aquarius
  • July 20 the 5th of 5 Saturn inconjunct Chiron
  • July 21 Saturn enters Libra the first time
  • July 24 Jupiter square Pluto 2nd time
  • July 26 5th of 5 Saturn opposite Uranus
  • August 3 Jupiter square Pluto 3rd time

Back to our current Saturn inconjunct Chiron/Neptune pattern – Chiron, healer and teacher, often has had no training on how to be the healer/teacher.  Neptune is famous for no structures at all.  Saturn is.  Saturn is the architect, the builder, the order of things, both in time, and space, the constructor of constructive thinking!  So first is deciding what the goal is, then prioritizing which parts and when to do first.  If any skills need to be learned, off to school with you, which Chiron doesn’t usually mind.  Neptune gets happy after all since its dreams do come true!  It really gets good when all the pieces start falling in place and you can see not only the fruits of your labor, but others doing it too as you share and show them the way, kinda like a spiritual barn raising, or a prefab going up right before your eyes!  Now that’s working smart!  Let dreamtime desire inspire, then create healing, teach how to build.  Rather than teaching how to build a boat, inspire someone to sail!      

Saturn will do another activation of these four, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, in 2013 but in 4 to 11 degrees of Scorpio!  The next such Saturn combo won’t be until 12 years later, 2025, in all different signs!  Check out the July 22, 2025 chart!  I used 2:45 PM, Santa Barbara CA.
