Mercury Mars Retrograde 2018 Drone Landscape Panoramic

New point of view! Drones give a greater elevation, a wider vision, the angle you choose! Your screen of the image is in your hands wherever you are. Mars is in both Capricorn and Aquarius, new scientific machines; Mercury retrograde in Leo shows us dramatic new ways of seeing, communicating!

We think of retrogrades as forward, back, forward. That might be hiking or driving up or down mountain switchbacks, or boating the curves of a river as it meanders to the sea. Now we have drones that have a higher vantage point like flying with the birds, or a lower vantage point exactly level with the top of the mist to see a sunrise that is clouded in below. It can see in front of us to see where we are going, and in an instant turn the drone to see behind us, see what the way home looks like. We can take our picture as we, our child or dog, race into a scene, amazing action shots, or a close up while we are far, far away! Our perspectives are expanding, enhanced, just like what happens with retrogrades, even more sophisticated!

Mars only retrogrades every other year, so this double Retrograde can only occur then and only if Mercury happens to retrograde at the same time!

This intricate double Retrograde process hosts two outer planet sign changes, two major outer planets aspects and precedes Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! Plus, Oct 30 to November 8 is an exciting TEN days in its own right! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a rare event! See more!!! Nov 1 Jupiter 28 Scorpio trines Chiron just that once. Nov 6 Uranus retrogrades back into Aries to review and update! Nov 7 is the Scorpio New Moon, and Jupiter 29 Scorpio, last degree, inconjuncts Uranus just once! Some people you travel with, some no longer, new ones pop in! This is it! Choose who you go on with now! Nov 8 Jupiter hop scotches over the line into his own sign Sagittarius! Where are my walking boots, my horse, my travel tickets?

Here’s the Mars & Mercury timetable:

The Mars Cycle Started May 12 in Capricorn!
May 15 New Moon, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius
May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter trines Neptune

June 26 Mars Retrogrades
June 28 Mercury into Leo

July 7    Mercury starts Rx cycle
July 25  Mercury Rxs

Aug 11 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse same degree as Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!
Aug 12 Mars back into Capricorn
Aug 18 Mercury turns forward/Direct
Aug 19 Jupiter’s last trine Neptune!
Aug 27 Mars turns forward, Direct

Sep 5   Mercury into Virgo
Sep 10 Mars forward into Aquarius!
Sep 12 Jupiter’s last sextile Pluto
Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces

Oct 8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Mercury will do his 3 part cycle July 7 to Sep 1. Both Mars and Mercury will be retrograde at the same time July 25 to Aug 18! Watch your step! Mercury’s entire Rx cycle is within the Mars Rx! Though in different signs, they are inextricably linked by time.

Whether ascending or descending, 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! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle. Mars will be doing business 28 Capricorn to 9 Aquarius, establishing innovative community liaisons and Internet presence. He opposes Sun at 4 Leo from 4 Aquarius. Activation, independence, Fatherhood, leadership and freedom will be important. Mercury will cover 11 to 23 degrees in fire sign Leo the sign of the Sun! He lights the arena, speaks from the heart. Teaching and sharing mean a lot. In Leo puts his personal stamp on the way things are said, is specially himself and like no other.

The last Mercury Rx was in fire sign Aries, Mar’s sign. These fire signs can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warm your very Soul. They raise you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

Mars started his cycle May 12 in Capricorn. Three days later, on the May 15 New Moon, Uranus moved into Taurus for the first time in 84 years! The same day, Mars moved into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign. What a bold are rare start! Uranus will change the Earth herself, Mars will be the champion in her behalf! In Taurus, Uranus’s pace will be slowed somewhat, but not in Earth matters! Mars will stand near, making sure Uranus doesn’t forget to use the electric jazz that is his natural talent!

May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter makes his last two trines to Neptune, the entire period during the Mars cycle. It isn’t just that this lovely dreams-come-true trine happens, Scorpio to Pisces, but Mars indicates how we activate and do it! While in Capricorn he puts his shoulder to the wheel, builds, pushes, works overtime to set a strong foundation to make a place that properly supports the project. In Aquarius he looks for the most avant-garde possibilities to make it awesome. Electronics are the finest, community backing assures continued progress. Efficient sustainable results save money in the long term.

Mars Rx in Capricorn checks project status frequently, catching snafus or being sure changes are implemented promptly. Better techniques are incorporated as they are discovered. Short term nuisance, long term blessing. Bosses may change mid-course causing some more adjustments needing to be made. Some may lose their jobs yet, in time, find themselves in a better place. Fathers may fret over the right course to take with a child who seems to be in trouble. Get unbiased help from an experienced professional. Aging may require some changes. Allow for a slower recovery, possibly from a recurrence of an old health matter. Ask around to see how others have dealt with it. Do some good things for yourself and take some time out if possible.

Mars Rx in Aquarius may find themselves needing to be more free from all that work, even if it was your choice to do it! Time to be the consultant! Could be some new friends have caused a course change with their offerings, new ideas that have a broader reach are electrifying! Aquarius can be so fast that even Mars is having to hustle to keep up, and that’s rare! It’s gratifying to be first, on the cutting edge again, exultant to be the leader and wake people up right and left! Dashing to and fro, meeting people that support your ideas makes you come back to life. Some of it you may not understand yet, but you sense an outrageous potential! The old gray mare ain’t what she used to be!

During the time when Mars and Mercury are retrograde together, we have the Pluto-on-the-Ecliptic connected Aug 11 New Moon SuperMoon Solar Eclipse. They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

How we think about it all is in Mercury’s mind. In Leo there is a wanting to outdo all others, to make it grand and mighty! Mental prowess is formidable, creative and inspirational! We are each called to contribute our best, to make it glow! Our hearts are strong and true. People see our story and want to join in. Changes will be needed to accommodate the new fit. Colors and lighting will change, our presentation, how we dress, our hair, nails even! Some will be a little bossy, and that may be a relief that someone took charges, or we may find ourselves being bullied, or not credited with our contribution. Keep it square. Leos aren’t always quick on their feet adaptable, but they mean well. Come at it a little more gently ~ see how that works. Everybody stay with your exercise programs.

While Mars is finishing the third part of his cycle, Aug 27 to Oct 8, he returns to Aquarius Sep 10. Sep 12, Jupiter makes his last sextile with Pluto. Jupiter is in Scorpio, a mixed combination of a fiery impetuous planet in a you better do it right sign. Jupiter wants to tell all and Scorpio gives a look of warning that you believe. Ok, we’re looking for middle ground here? A sextile is a good aspect of opportunity, but probably not about telling secrets, or you get the scoop and the Pulitzer. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn, holds the power of the law though, so you better be sure before you tell that story – scandal, libel. Even though Mars is not at close degree of the sextile, in Aquarius he is definitely a rabble rouser and may throw both Jupiter and Pluto off balance. They can see the wild card coming. So find a way to get the information out that will prosper for all in a good way. Don’t wait to be caught; turn it to your favor.

Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces. He sees the exquisite compassion or the devastating downfall, sometimes of drugs and disability. He returns to a remarkable insight, revelation of Spirit that was clouded before. He has been ahead in Aries and now carries the great sword of fire to cut away the pain of having been harmed, cauterize old psychically bleeding wounds, to release misunderstandings we carried that weighed us down. The healer/teacher has stepped up to the plate, no longer so easy going, letting us be in our stew, but insisting we make changes. Period. Time to get up. He has seen more about how it has been done, is here to take us the next step. On your feet, we can do this.

Much shall have happened as we approach Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30!

Astrology chart of Mercury starting Retrograde July 25, 2018 during Mars Retrograde.

Mars Mercury Double Retrograde 2018 Astrology Chart

Note the T Square – red triangle: Mars, Uranus at point, Sun/North Node. There will be some challenging surprises! See that pretty little bow? It is continuously linked by the green lines across the top of the chart! It is crosslinked by Moon trine Venus/Venus trine Pluto, and Jupiter trine Neptune! Two trines for money and wellbeing, two feminine planets – Moon and Venus, plus learning, dreaming and spirituality and happy magical traveling! Wow!

Aspects during the retrogrades

Mars makes most powerful aspects while he is in Aquarius! May 15, 16 Mars sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus. During his Retrograde, Aug 1 and 12 he squares Uranus then sextiles Chiron. The third set is Sep 10 and 18, sextile Chiron, square Uranus. Mars activates Chiron’s awareness of what needs healing, opens gates to the future and starts further healing with unusual techniques either new to you or new to the planet! On the daily earthly plane, Mars square Uranus in Taurus can be accidents – knives, autos, electronics. Taurus can be trucks, ground to air transportation, earth pockets/volcanic, quakes. Maybe not the time to go spelunking, hang gliding or skydiving. If your 6th sense says don’t, then don’t.

If you are not one to take chances, maybe this will be just the aspect to make you give it a try, but choose leaders with experience and integrity. Sun trine Mars gives prowess and a lucky winner May 25; Jupiter trine Neptune gives protection. The Aug 1 and 12 square Uranus sextile Chiron have more protection because they are followed by Jupiter trine Neptune Aug 19, but still chancy. Mercury trines Mars June 1 and Sep 23. Good use of gear, quick responses.

Three times aspects Mercury makes are square Jupiter in Scorpio, and a yod to Neptune and Pluto. Square Jupiter may disagree on which way to go, which school to select, has the best teachers. Ethics may be important to your life, who to hang out with. Perspective can be crucially important. Exaggeration or lies, misrepresenting, could be costly. We can be expecting too much, be overwhelmed. Privacy and trust or too much truth and way too chatty? Or you win the lottery, and, oh, dear, what shall I do?! LOL Some problems diminish in importance as you get used to the idea and find excellent solutions.

Mercury yod, at the point of a ‘Y’ with Neptune and Pluto is a tough place for playful Mercury in Leo to sit. Leo loves a great performance blazing with remarkable colors and making sounds that heaven can hear! Neptune in Pisces can go with the flow but will eventually retreat to the ashram and meditation, solitude. Woops, did I hurt their feelings? Pluto in Capricorn may join you if he likes your style, but more likely he will be far more proper, conservatively snatching glances at your debauchery, interesting but certainly not really professional. Hmm…yet the employees seem to like it. Well, ok, maybe again next year. In Leo, Mercury can seem like a me, me, me, person and that can be good. Personal experiences can come from the heart and make us all human together, warts and all. If anyone can give a radiant talk on the amazing upcoming project, they can, and have you eating out of their hand! Rewards welcome! The more quiet watchers marvel and are glad to have them. They couldn’t have said it better, at all! Hat’s off!

If either Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well. Mars in Capricorn it is tool safety, architectural instruments, maintenance, repairs freezers, earth movers, forklifts. Get mechanical items serviced. Mars in Aquarius especially involves vehicles, bicycles, drones, mechanical and electrical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned work is likely, project course corrections, rehires and job shifts. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end too. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done for Mercury until the 3rd phase is done Sep 1, Mars Oct 8!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Mars in AQ can be super spontaneous and sweep off on an extraordinary new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. In Capricorn, don’t fall for too much pessimism. Keep working but keep watch. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt to those Leo wishes. They can pull off amazing things, and with Jupiter trine Neptune the odds are in their favor!

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, 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 the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, 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, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. 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 and started! Yes! 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!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!

2018 Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Dog! Australian Shepard

Those blue eyes! Australian Shepard by Eileen Kumpf/Getty Images

In the US New Year’s Day started with the Full Wolf Supermoon! The Chinese New Year is the year of the Brown Earth Dog!

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is a Solar Eclipse Feb 15 at 1:05 PM PACIFIC at 27 Aquarius! In addition, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, making it like a triple eclipse event! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear. Feb 16, New Year day, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the Brown Earth Dog.

Previous Dog years were 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, now this one 2018, and next is 2030! The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Rooster, and before the Pig! When determining your year, remember, the first day of the New Year falls at the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so the date of the new year varies year to year. Dogs are akin to western astrology’s 7th sign Libra.

When I think of Earth Dogs in a literal sense, I think of low to the ground pups like Dachshunds and Basset Hounds, and dogs like Terriers that love to hunt animals that live in the ground. When I think of Libra, pretty well groomed social dogs come to mind, like Poodles, Papillons and King Charles Spaniels, maybe a purebred that’s show quality! Could be a fluffy pure cute, or a non-shedding sleek short hair. Super smart and courageous working dogs are certainly on the ground! Corgis, Australian Shepards, Queensland Healers, Collies! In the Spirit sense, dogs nowadays are considered part of our families, loyal protectors that would give their lives for us.

Human Dogs certainly live up to these admirable traits! They are perceived as very loyal, honest and faithful companions, loving and attentive, not argumentative and they dislike confrontations. Sweetly, Dogs are usually good at remembering anniversaries and other special relationship moments.

Just like a dog will love you no matter who you are, Chinese dogs are considered to be fair, unprejudiced and companionable. They are always alert and aware of things and people around them. Though some prefer to work alone or in small groups, the Libran Dog is adaptable enough to fit in anywhere. These are hard workers who are conscientious, responsible and reliable. They are good with finances and would rather save up than borrow. They live within their means, are frugal buyers, favor quality and real value over quantity. They usually acquire a comfortable lifestyle.

Dogs’ weakness is they tend to be private worriers, sometimes giving the impression they have a stubborn personality. Better to verbalize your concerns, get fresh insights with others. Bless their hearts, they are likely to worry more about others than themselves. They seem to sometimes try and take responsibility for or be too understanding of the actions of others. Denial or too much forgiving. Having a supportive partner will help these doggies to share their personal thoughts and anxieties so they don’t mount up.

Outdoors is good, boring is bad! Dogs need to breathe some great fresh air and get exercise, love meeting new people! They can be serious but know how to take time out  to refresh themselves. Share walking, driving, running, or just relaxing in the garden with your dog friends. As long as it is outside they are not usually fussy about what it involves doing.

Dogs are instinctual and intelligent. They will accept leadership from a true leader as long as it makes sense to their belief system. Dogs are not always leaders themselves but will be close to leaders, who can count on the Dog to save the day. But don’t forget the bite! Always cautious and alert, sometimes undecided, the Earth Dog will bite when he feels threatened or betrayed! You may lose his business.

Famous Dogs:  Fire Dog Trump – this was an ultimate Eastern insult: North Korea said Trump’s speech to UN was akin to ‘sound of a barking dog.’ Famous dogs: Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Bocelli, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, Uma Thurman, Bill Clinton, George Gershwin, Judy Garland, Steven Spielberg, Justin Bieber, David Bowie!

Famous Earth Dogs: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Billy Idol, Al Capone, Prince!

A heartfelt welcome and shout out to all the new little Brown Earth Dogs to be born this year!

Gong xi fa cai, my dear friends, and especially to all you Dogs! Woof!

Jupiter Scorpio Pluto Capricorn Undervalued Sustainable Stocks

A practical thought that may cross our minds. See Sierra Club’s investment program called Aspiration!

Jupiter in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, and Pluto in Capricorn, clear life up for long term ventures. The first two aspects, Jan 15 to April 14 are close and continuous for three months! They clean the frequencies so following outer planet sign changes can be free of debris. This aspect is especially the final preparation for Chiron’s sign change from Pisces to Aries April 17, then Uranus changing from Aries to Taurus May 15! The sign being finished can be brought to a pure maturity with satisfaction and no regrets. The sign we move into gets a clean start, a better chance to do what it is intended to do! It’s a three sign sequential change – Pisces, Aries, Taurus. Pisces is the dreamer/believer. Aries is the initiator, takes action to get it started. Taurus, a fixed sign, anchors and stabilizes. Both Chiron and Uranus share the Aries energy. It’s as if the baton is passed, Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron is already on board as backup to keep Aries rolling! They exchange information while they are both in Aries, April 17 to May 15!

Jan 15 Jupiter sextile Pluto is the first aspect of 2018, sets the tone for the year! They travel closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months to the retrograde aspect April 14. The third follows Sep 12, after the last two Jupiter trine Neptunes. Visions are inspiring! Any last remnants of debris that become apparent are cleared away! We are free to go!

The first sextile is at a powerful time of focus! When the Moon starts in Capricorn 11:42 AM Pacific Jan 14, until it goes into Aquarius 0:32 AM the 17th, we will be having the largest grouping of planets in one sign (stellium) in 2018 – SIX in 26 Capricorn (including Pluto!)! Also the sextile is the day before 2018’s first New Moon!! The New Moon is Jan 16 at 26 Capricorn 54. Capricorn is the last of the working signs, the Earth signs. With the merger of Moon to Sun, it will seal the principles together with both feminine and masculine expertise. It will be dedicated and carry the purpose as its top priority. Intuition will bring clear results.

The second sextile is also at a New Moon, again, the day before! The New Moon is 26 Aries, sign on new beginnings, the first sign of the zodiac, and it trines the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius! Also, on the same day of and before the New Moon, Mercury goes Direct, out of retrograde, beginning to release new energy! Several reasons to celebrate! When Mercury is at a turning point, it is stilled for 8 days, what we call in station. There is a sustained reception, a focus, an anchoring of what we have in mind. Since this second sextile is the end of 3 months of working with Jupiter sextile Pluto, it is a culminating time as well. It will be good to affirm the fruits of our learning. The Aries New Moon will abound with new ideas. Tuned to the Galactic Center, they will be as epic as an Aries can make them! And this time it’s not just Aries enthusiasm! Do give them a thoughtful listen! They are speaking with the tongues of Angels!

The third sextile is four days after a new moon, but the day after the Sun in Virgo sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! That should warm things up! Virgo applies the data, organizes for effective results! Nurse or accountant, that’s invaluable! Jupiter and Pluto should make some quite productive working decisions.

Scorpio and Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, are the agents that clean up the messes! They can be in your mind, your health, your household plumbing, shackles that need to be removed or be less cruel, toxic waste on land or at sea. Jupiter sees where things can go, in Scorpio the Path gets cleared of obstructions and doubts. Pluto in Capricorn guards the old ways, but also has an eye to blind spots buried deep that need updating. Capricorn wants to do the best business possible with the least expense and time, so is on board when a better proven way is shown and is willing to chance some changes. More progress than we knew could be possible!

Jupiter in Scorpio wants education to be meaningful. Pluto in Capricorn wants it to be useful. Jupiter and Pluto want the very best. Go for that! Go to centers or schools that specialize about what you love! Do on the job training, get experience. Volunteer with clarity. Think more long term.

Finances are important to your planning and this can be a lucrative time! It may be tempting to invest everything you’ve got, but diversify a bit. If one or two do better, put more monies there! If you are good with percentages, do it yourself, otherwise, this may be a good time to do it with the pros! Check out their astrology chart before you engage them!

Alliances may be lifelong, and if you have great aspects yourself, it could be a fine marriage merger with both productive business and lots of pleasure! Jupiter is lucky and in Scorpio sees the deepest best in you, reasonable flaws are accepted and forgiven. Ironically, it is also a good time for divorce as well. Financial matters will be shared, well-tended, or divvied up with an equitable settlement if necessary. Intimacy may be so special, and if renewed with lots of appreciation and affection, your marriage could be saved.

Health is likely to improve or be more comfortable. The source of illness will be sought at the deepest levels. As layers are revealed, healing occurs that opens deeper doors. It will be a mix of old remedies and modern medicine, and your psychology. Healing is rarely by touch of the magic wand, but instead, hard work that requires us to learn and understand. Jupiter sees the potential and if you wisely hang onto it, you will be quite pleased with the result. Make your obsessions positive obsessions! If you are young, be aware of consequences of patterns that could affect you down the line. If you are older, you may be thinking of where you will live after retirement or possible health matters that compromise your abilities. Choose housing that makes sense. Small homes communities have never been so fun! DIY mini GrandMother home kits, yes!

Recycling is good. Reuse and repurposing are even better. Renovation including charming vintage panels or glass is lovely. Making places safer, less toxic, with up to date money saving sustainable conveniences makes sense! Homes for the homeless with the programs that go with it are like recycling/healing humans and save money in the long term!

This is a time for research and funding of all kinds. Research for cures of illnesses that have long plagued us. Funding for education to stop all kinds of abuses – sexual, violence, human and animal cruelty, poverty, of our lands. If you are making your will or revising it, consider splitting it. Put some monies toward planetary matters, the rest for your family. Do your part, what you can. Read up on HOW to make change. BE solution oriented. Support those causes.

Traveling will take on a sober note. It may be a profound adventure, soulful, for greater purposes. ‘Chance’ meetings along the way will have importance. A few words can make a major impact. Likely to combine business and exploration. You may be attracted to dangerous places…be careful, please. Learn techniques of life that change you. Invest some time in spiritual accord inner traveling. Be away. Take silence or fast. Consult the Oracles.

Jupiter with Pluto in Scorpio and Capricorn is invincible! Recovery is swift, almost miraculous. They rarely get sick no matter what the conditions. Businesses and financial dealings are super successful. Scripts and writing are charismatic, stunners! Romantic relationships are remarkably long-lived. Their planetary work makes a lasting difference. They have tenacity!

Sustainability will be a key word in all our lives. Jupiter sees the whole picture above ground; Scorpio sees the roots. Pluto in Capricorn specializes in condensing, more for less, getting the most out of it, and long term use! That can be time, materials, decreasing your bills, and the ability to keep a good system going in a good way. Global warming and weathers, environmental changes will be factored in. Locales where you work or live will be more important than ever. [See your astrologer for AstroLocality choices.]

Libra Poised at Fall Equinox!

Happy Birthdays, Libras!

Libra 3 Planet Stellium John Trudell

John Trudell image by Matika Wilbur/facebook.com/Project562

In honor of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, I choose John Trudell, 3 planet stellium in Libra, as our Libra Hero this year. As a Native thinker Trudell said: ‘I am a human, a member of a tribe, not a subject for corporate mining and exploitation. I don’t trust their corporate ‘democracy.’ We humans must think for ourselves. That’s what we need to give to the next generation.’ He died less than a year ago, December 8, 2015. His Spirit is still with us.

John had Neptune in Libra. You can bet he would be there to protect our precious waters and sacred land and animals and humans and children’s rights. No pipeline.

His Chiron is in Libra. He would have sought ways to heal the wounds of the land. John would have kept us updated with his broadcasts, made films to teach better ways and balance, write poetry to sway our hearts.

His Jupiter is in Libra and trine to his Aquarian Sun and Venus. He is for the people, a teacher of faith in change. He was multi gifted, a Santee Dakota Native American author, poet, actor, musician, and political activist.

Trudell served as the national chairman of the American Indian Movement from 1973 until 1979. He grew up in small towns near the Santee Sioux Reservation in northern Nebraska near the southeast corner of South Dakota. He lived in the very lands where the Sioux people still live.

In 1963 when 17 years old, Trudell dropped out of high school and left the Midwest, joining the US Navy. He served during the early years of the Vietnam War and stayed in the Navy until 1967.

Trudell had his share of suffering. His pregnant wife, three children and mother-in-law were killed in 1979 in a suspicious fire at the home of his parents-in-law on the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Nevada. At the time of Marcheline Bertrand’s death in 2007, he was in relationship with her. She was Angelina Jolie’s mom. Marcheline was the executive producer of the documentary Trudell, shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005.

Those days were different, when Trudell was most active. There was ‘revolution’ in the air with protests of all kinds – financial, love vs war/violence/hate, racial, women’s rights. There was so much fear as old ways were overturned, people looked different, mores changed. Everyone was finding a way and it certainly wasn’t peaceful. Protesters were well intentioned and unsophisticated. Massive resistance seemed to require radical behavior, and often that was what it took. Mistakes were plentiful on all sides.

John Trudell was not a perfect person, but he did what he could as he could. Whatever needs changing in your life, stand up for it!

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Libra!

Libra Let there be Peace on Earth Begin with Me

People remember how you treated them, they remember how you made them feel.

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Librans and Libra in general are in a challenge aspect with Capricorn. Libra is the sign before Scorpio, so by natural order, as trust develops in Libra partnerships, Scorpio feels safe to invest with them, both on a personal basis and financially. The challenge is when Libra teases their way between the Capricorn bricks to loosen the armor. Pluto can hang on until death do us part. That can be a good defense when protection is needed, or it can be a harsh and brittle punishment when stopping a flower from blooming. Stand as equals, hear each other out, give it time, come back to the table. Sometimes a bridge needs to be built, breath by breath, heart by heart.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Libra, a logical air sign and keen observer, sees the sensitivity of Neptune, like a canary in the mine. They are fascinated by the gift of intuition, confused by the magnitude of sorrows and the illusions of addiction. Libra usually stays clean. They don’t like losing their balance and not looking their best. They can arrange aid for the cause however, seek strong allies and advocates, lend legal assistance. Libras can illustrate equality, render a fair decision, a just compromise. They are often peacemakers in their own families at a young age.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Libra charmingly collaborates with Uranus. And it may be over tough matters like civil rights, to say nothing of animal rights, stopping extinction. It’s no accident that September 21 is International Peace Day. Uranus in Aries strives for independence, freedom of all beings. Libra seeks even more, a harmony of all beings. Traveling and education in other countries, on other continents, helps us see others ways that are quite different, often wise. Cultural diversity is invigorating, like hybridization often is! Remarkable friendships and partnerships may come.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Libra may find themselves with marriage in mind, especially while Jupiter is in Libra, but this may not be the best for late Libras. It may be a better time for them to be careful of losses, attend to problems, even if they seem to be only small nagging at the back of your mind types. Pay attention, talk about it whether it is on your side or theirs. A gentle resolution could save the day down the road. Learn more about items that come your way. Learn more about negotiating and how to kindly show others how to do it too. All these skills will do when making business adjustments too. You can be a good mechanic, but do it with a lot of heart. Be the magnet.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Libra is not a physical laborer sign, but works hard building relationships. They have a sense of refinement, an uncanny ability to see each side of a matter, to bring Spirit into alignment! Agreements can always be made from necessity or from a win/lose point of view, but when there is an underlying respect and understanding, the sting of loss, and the joy of gain makes peace in the long term.

Sagittarius and Libra are a delightful combination. They love sharing stories of the places they have been. Libra is more anthropologically inclined, Sagittarius loves the adventure! Libra is great at film making, Sag is a good subject! Sag may at times just outspokenly blunder in, while Libra is checking for local customs. Libra teaches Sag a little finesse, and Sag says don’t be shy, just do it! Seeing the advantages of both, they can pass the lead back and forth. Great teamwork for an import/export business! Libra sets up the contracts, Saturn minds the muscle to gather the goods.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. With the Sun in Libra too, it’s double time to go out and meet some good companions, enjoy some of the fruits of your labor. Go to a museum, the finest restaurants, check out some courses at the university! Your students or teacher may be from an array of cultures. Libra is remarkable with design! See if there are jobs with a cause that are open for you. You may be just the talent they are looking for! Instead of only that morning walk, you might find yourself taking dance lessons! And who knows, you may meet a sweet mate! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter Sunday the 25th at one minute before Midnight Pacific time! From noon on that day, spend some special time on a little journey with friends or loved ones! Attend a special event!

 

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

Have a great new year!

Libra Poised at Fall Equinox!

Libra White Rose for Purity

Dried plants, fallen leaves floating in the wind, seeds on the ground, a time of letting go of summer’s brilliance. For some it is a cooler season, for others it is blankets of snow over earth’s bed, quietening and restful, time to catch up, social evenings by the fire. For many, it is also the crisp zing of intoxicating energy, skiing, skating, sledding, ice hockey!

White for snow and purity, perfection and the virtue of the balance required for all those winter sports! Since plants and light are dying, there are cooler days and longer nights, worries and sadness can set in, needing courage to face the demons of darkness. Time for the breathtaking White Tiger! In itself it strikes the balance between dark and light by its colors! It LIVES those colors! Plus those amazing blue eyes!

West, the place of the setting sun is Libra’s direction. Sunset is our natural gathering time of day after work is done. We are tired and enjoy chatting over dinner, sharing the day’s events. Summer’s bounty makes it possible to share with pleasure. The Chumash Indians saw it as the place the Souls crossed over after having walked the Milky Way as stars. It is a finishing time as well as being inspired by new ideas. We talk things over and brainstorm how we would have done it, done it differently. In a moment new partnerships are formed to do new ventures.

West is also the place of dusk and dark, dreams and visions! We can seed our dreams with images of our new projects and ideas before sleeping, then dream them into being during the night. We wake up knowing what to do!

The knowing of these cycles of growth then rest, are innate within us. Being reminded helps us remember the cycle continues endlessly, effortlessly, naturally. Sadness is part of it. Weep well for things you have lost. Let your tears grace the Earth. Each period of rest or winter is followed by new growth, or spring. Choose courage to face what’s ahead, and may it be joyous! Light white candles. Put white flowers on your table or where you work.

As  Deborah Byrd says: You can recognize these phases in the course of relationships, over a workday, in the progress of a play or novel, in the process of aging, while eating a meal, in the growth of a garden, in a scientific or political or business enterprise, while playing a game. All things sprout, bloom, reach completeness, become brittle and die, then rest. Then the cycle begins anew.

Where Virgo sorted the goods, Libra connects the people! We are doing this together. Extend a smile or a hand to to fellow Life Walkers. Give them a white rose of winter.

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans!

Pisces Joanne Woodward YoungPisces Joanne Woodward Senior

2.27.1930 Pisces, Joanne Gignilliat Trimmier Woodward! Numerologist’s delight! LOOK at all those double letters and three letters twice in her last name! Doing the Three Faces of Eve was an easy feat for her! That and being a Pisces chameleon!

Pisces is a sweet lovely sign, though even when Pisceans smile there is a wee bit of a sad cast to their eyes. Their empathy is far more than for any one person; they see the sorrows of the world. But with Venus conjunct her Sun, Joanne was and is a standout beauty! From starlet to white haired senior, she has worn her age well. Capricorn rising didn’t give her and old look, but a wise look. Though considered an ‘old’ sign, they often soften and look younger than their age in elder times. Her Jupiter is in Gemini in good aspect with her Sun. Jupiter is a warm spirited teacher. Gemini scintillates, has instant perception, the gift of an array of voices, is forever young!

Jupiter in Gemini also has an uncanny intelligence to see the outcomes of several futures and picks the one that gives the best return. She sure did with Paul Newman! They were married 50 years, and you can believe they had sympatico charts! Both have Capricorn Ascendants. Her Moon and other factors are in his Sun sign Aquarius; his Moon is right with her Sun Pisces! What bonds. There are other great aspects as well, plus favorable declination combinations to back it all up!

Ever learning, in 1990, Woodward graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, along with her daughter Clea! Newman delivered the commencement address, during which he said he dreamed that a woman had asked, “How dare you accept this invitation to give the commencement address when you are merely hanging on to the coattails of the accomplishments of your wife?”

Philanthropy is a strong suit for savior Pisceans and humanitarian Aquarians. In 1988, Newman and Woodward established the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a nonprofit residential summer camp, and year-round center named after the Wyoming mountain hideaway of the outlaws in Newman’s film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The camp, located in Ashford, Connecticut, provides services to 20,000 children and their families coping with cancer, and other serious illnesses and conditions, free of charge.

Joanne has won Best Actress at the Academy Awards, at the Cannes Film Festival, and two Emmys as well! Quite a woman. Wishing her continued successes.

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Pisces! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Pisces is a couple of signs beyond, as sensitive and flowing as Pluto in Cap is intense and sharp! That doesn’t mean Pisces doesn’t get things done. It is so intuitive it saves time, so Capricorn loves that guidance. When Pisces needs a leg up, Pluto senses the need for an overhaul, and Capricorn lends a hand step by step. They have all seen their share of difficulties and are powerful in their responses. Sometimes Pluto and Cap get lost in their moneys and reputation, but Pisces reminds them it has to mean something more or the Soul left behind gets dim. When they all team up, Spirit prevails.

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. The Sun’s annual course lends Light to subtle places, our vision is brightened. We stand a little taller, think of ourselves as a beacon in the storms, a master of the tides of Being. Neptune’s immersion makes us know we are all a part of each other. Neptune’s rise on a sea swell lifts us to see glimpses of the possibilities. As we rise and fall, we carry the understanding among us, as natural cycles unfold and at the same time, we are carried further and further into realms we never knew existed. We can be a tidal torrent or in silent suspension. When the Sea is calm, there is a peace beyond anything, anywhere, anytime. We are so still, we can feel ourselves, who and what we truly are.

Neptune brings a pure fusion of choate being. What you denied before becomes apparent. Old seams unravel as the tides of spirit rift the veils. The whole truth seeps in, then pours through us. We are washed clean, freed from residues of what even an old Soul thinks is true. Revelation becomes a verb, and we forevermore know now how to use this technique of evolution. The awakening of Aquarius becomes the seeing of Pisces. Some of this happens gradually over years of time, water over stone; other times it is the Miracle in a moment.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius and Pisces is the next sign. Aries is the sign after Pisces. Uranus makes the bold proposal. Pisces is not really surprised, but may miss a beat with the wild lightening approach! It absorbs and records the frequency, the vibration, noting its instinctual preliminary reaction. Some think of Pisces as a pushover wimp, but I would respect them. Though generally kindly, if they feel abused, back to the wall, you may find yourself at the bottom of a wave being pounded, or subtly undermined and you never find out where from…. Word to the wise. If your ideas are understood and appreciated, they will give you everything they have got to help save the world!

Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Pisceans are feeling the old mythological pains, of body or psyche. They are being called to learn how to heal, often in difficult seemingly hopeless situations. Teaching often entails the healer learning when to let go, move on to plant seeds in fertile ground. Business depends on whether it is Soul inspiring. Otherwise it is a drudgery to Spirit and escapism prevails. Sensitive Pisceans usually do better with partners who are in supportive and encouraging accord, in clean and gentle surroundings, rather than dark confrontive situations requiring constant recovery. Chiron can knock you down, pick you up, and bring a remarkable life!

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016 as it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof. In Sagittarius it is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Sagittarius squares Pisces, a challenge. Pisces can be elusive and illusive while Saturn wants conclusive. Pisces can see right through Saturn’s insecurities, why they need to be so in control. It may take awhile, but Saturn sees that the world doesn’t come to a halt when things, people, don’t go as planned. A little leeway opens doors! Sag likes traveling anywhere and Pisces doesn’t mind. If Pisces needs to get a grip, Saturn is the perfect character builder type to help. Sagittarius reminds them the purpose of the game and encourages them to stop whining and get going! LOL! This combo calls for Pisces to be most understanding in the beliefs department. Saturn in Sag likes to build churches for the true believers, do it by the good book. Pisces meditates and claims to have talked with God.

Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Pisces, and in a manner of speaking is a pseudo T Square, Jupiter representing Sagittarius. Sag is the sign at the midpoint between Virgo and Pisces. All are what we call Mutable signs – changeable, adaptable, moving. Virgo adjusts the schedule to financial standing, health needs. Jupiter seeks a greater range, changes direction when it discovers a more promising opportunity. Being opposite, Pisces may sense this is not for them and widens the gap. Jupiter and Virgo are way too picky, too busy for solitude loving Pisces and they can’t agree on the purpose of the venture anyway. Or, Pisces is drawn along by Virgo’s impeccable data and Jupiter’s generous intention. They may offer Pisces funding to help teach the disadvantaged, save lives with health programs. It may be time for Pisces to hire an assistant to manage events, chauffeur, write their scripts!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a Fire and Air combination, SO social and Pisces is so not! But what is an artist, a musician, without their attorney or media manager?! It’s good to open our Spirits more to others around us. Balancing our inner world with the world as it is, scary, amazing, rich, is a maximum fulfillment. We feel more alive. We find ways to buffer our sensitivity while among our fellows. We are glad to offer our perceptions to help others through the nuances of their relationships. We see similarly to Libra in that we can put ourselves in another’s place, be more forgiving and understanding. Teaching is more eloquent, even poetic. Opinions, though often disparate, find ways to coexist as all learn from each other. Jupiter in Libra offers beautiful and inspiring invitations. We feel honored to be among the chosen.

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Pisces ~

Magical Dimensions, Landscapes of Nether! 

Pisces Ocean Fantasy Mermaid Unicorn Fairy Castle

To many Pisceans fantasy is an elemental part of life, all is blended, merged, connected. At the edge of the worlds, beyond within, moving to stillness. No molecule is left behind. We are swept in the tides of all being, shuffled and polished in the tides of life. We merge wholly with some for a time, wave as others pass by. Part of us is part of them, goes with them yet we are still here. Pisces is all and entirely nothing.

Being in love with a Pisces is a union well beyond words. Twin Flames, Soul Mates are terms we often hear. There is knowing with no thinking. Spirits are swirled like a teasing ice cream, the eddies in the tide pool. There are times when each IS the other. Other times there is a disconnect as one or the other wanders into another fascinating world. They may be gone a few moments, years, or simply never return, vanish. It is speculated the Soul takes them where they are needed most. Sometimes there is a need for solitude, to find one’s own center again, then they are back.

Pisceans may be mystifying, no discernable hard facts. They certainly aren’t bookkeepers like their opposite sign Virgo. Earthly organization is not their need, they are on Divine schedule. Definitions are in the moment and depend on who you are with. Time is irrelevant. Money isn’t a matter. Sexuality may be ambiguous.

If Venus is in Capricorn, perhaps there are more standard mores, gritty work accomplished, a platform built for the entertainment, future outcomes levied in. Musicians, composers of excellence.

If in Aquarius, and with Mercury there too, life and sexuality are likely to be different. And that’s putting it mildly. We don’t usually think of Pisces as rebellious, but in this case, watch your mismatched socks! Don’t be too surprised if they are spiritually radical – that can be dedicated to atheist! Either way, those beliefs are super important to them. Oh can they play and sing! Melodious or off key, bizarre to exceptional, they are enchanting. Bright colored birds of many iridescent colors.

If Venus and Mercury are in Pisces with their Sun, they will more truly please themselves, be the most unpredictable as they morph to whomever passes by and catches their fancy, experimenting with the nuances of life. Early in life they may be very vulnerable and naïve, and when older you can never fool them. They know before you do. This combo is most susceptible to sorrows and addictions. It’s important to keep company with people who love who you are, celebrate and encourage you. This magical mix loves the night and has phenomenal dreamtime!

If Venus and Mercury are in Aries, you might never guess them to be Pisces! Aries is blink-of-the-eye fast, first and furious! Of course, Pisces helps with that because their intuition responds before Aries senses the need to act! Double time quick! In Aries any meditation or sitting still, being dreamy and wondering, doesn’t last long! Aries wants to DO, be there, get things rolling, lead the troops! Pisces believes in the cause, Aries puts it into action. A walking, or better yet, running meditation suits.

If Venus is in Taurus, things are steady and true blue. There’s a slower pace, flowers and danger of wine and chocolates. Sweet voices, an elfin face, whimsical Spirits. They may have a garden by the sea, harvest the seaweed at the shoreline, sit at the foot of a tree, spend hours lost in contemplation of nature. Sometimes money matters more. Touch may calm them. Beauty pleases them.

And, of course there can be mixes of the above that give different flavors and talents. There are flavors with Pisces, and with any sign. Venus is up to 47 degrees from the Sun, within the same sign or up to two either side. Mercury only up to 28 degrees, in the same Sun sign or its neighboring sign. Go to Astro.com, Free Horoscopes, to find where your planets are. If you don’t know your birth time, use 12 PM, midday.

Doing business with a Pisces is not by the book. Imagination takes them and you on amazing rides. If it’s a serious gotta sign these papers, a deadline, keep sessions short and focused in an undistracting place. If they are bored, they simply change the channel and they escape! If it’s a brainstorming session you’re in luck! Open the doors and windows, cater the lunch, record, put your feet up on footstools, go to the beach! If it’s bookkeeping, report simply and get to the point. Human Resources are always a challenge. Pisceans forgive and understand, want to help, and be sure to give a good severance if we must let them go. You may have to do a takeover and offer to do it for them.

Pisceans do better with work that helps others – charities, saving animals and people, the planet. Many of them have been down themselves, and with their empathy at high volume, see the needs. They see the future as it could be if change isn’t made. Prevention is a key part. Some of them are down on their knees, one on one with children. Some are in great hardship at disaster sites doing recovery work. Others are in research labs tinkering with tiny things that mean a lot. Others are on stage blasting the message through story and poetic songs, both heartbreakers and inspiration that moves hearts of stone!

Health matters are sometimes obscure, hard to define. Other times, if obvious weight, drug or alcohol addictions, who needs a doctor?! It’s self evident. Feet, the part of the body that stands under, understanding, are Pisces’ domain. Swelling, allergies, sleep, dream disorders can be concerns. If you are a sensitive, you may be psychosomatically susceptible to other people’s illnesses. Since Pisceans have such acute hearing, are so sensitive to music and sounds, hearing and ear issues may happen at one time or another. Pisces is considered visionary, and that applies to your eyesight as well. It can be both psychologically or physically. We can be blinded, in denial. In astrology, people with important or many factors in the 12th (Pisces) House, Neptune with Moon, Sun, or at the Ascendant or Moon or Sun in the 12 House may have these issues as well. Get some good grounded help from reliable healers with a proven record of success.

Meditation, rest, music are helpful healers. Hydrotherapy, negative Ions by the sea, swimming, floating take you away. Doing service, volunteer work, the ‘Mission,’ takes your mind off things, and builds an aura of confidence as dream becomes reality.

Psychic Pisceans can be anybody’s twin. They know you, have many talents. Clairaudience is clear hearing. They can be clairvoyant, have clear vision as they view the sweep of life or location around you as events unfold. Their dreams are often predictive. Clear guidance is given in the ideas upon awaking. Levitation is not unheard of. Shapeshifting is common. It’s pretty funny when Pisceans are looking for a psychic. They have a hard time finding someone who sees more than they do themselves!

Neptune, the Pisces planet, will be IN Pisces until 2026, another 10 years! You might say, oh I have plenty of time, but it depends on what the degrees are in your personal chart. It will activate different factors as it goes along, or if your factors are in the first third of the degrees, it will be done with yours this year!

It is magical to have your planet in your sign! The romance of the ages dances before your very eyes! Neptune takes 168 years in its orbit, so it will be a long time before it is in Pisces again! Really take it in, be alive to it, ask for it to be in your dreams, in the mist of the surf you breath on the incoming tide! Feel the salt on your skin. Take a cruise to a sacred site. Open a seaside restaurant or sport business. Spend time at the beach, listen to the waves. Try windsailing, paddle boarding, or get a kayak. Walk under the starry heavens at night….

It’s an elemental embrace. And you are part of it.

CHRISTMAS Full Long Nights Moon –
Water Grand Trine/Kite!

NEW Moon – Capricorn Stellium!

 

CHRISTMAS Full Long Nights Moon –
Water Grand Trine/Kite!

Wednesday December 25, 3:11 AM Pacific at 3 Cancer 20

Capricorn Christmas 2015 Full Long Nights Moon
May the Magic of the Long Nights Moon descend upon you and bring you Love & Peace. 

Last Full Moon of 2015! The next, a New Moon, is Jan 9. Say farewell with deep gratitude, your Spirit fully open, like the wings of a butterfly, to let the Sun shine upon us, to ascend into a New Year full of Promise!

At 3 degrees, extraordinary Lilith is in exact aspect with Sun and Moon! Retrograde, she sextiles Sun and trines Moon. Some call that a Wedge pattern. The planet/factor to the side of the opposition seeks, senses, siphons energy in from the outside, opens to greater opportunity. It pushes energy from inside out into the world, releasing, sharing the combined power of the two opposites! Since the aspects are favorable in classical astrology, what Lilith seeks is accepted by her more conservative comrades in Cancer and Capricorn. She in Scorpio, may bring them secrets, deeper connection they don’t completely understand at first. She can represent them to higher powers successfully, taking them further than ever before. In modern terms, Lilith brooks no nonsense, is an independent feminine force!

Add magical Neptune in Pisces, and we have a Grand Trine/Kite. The weight of the Kite is at the Sun side of the Full Moon Grand Trine. The Sun is a radiant midpoint lighting the channel between Lilith and Neptune. Lilith can have tremendous power in Scorpio. People who even have an inkling of it may back away, even when it is for good purposes. Neptune understands Lilith even if she doesn’t want to be known. As Scorpio often prefers privacy, Neptune often chooses solitude. Lilith strengthens Neptune to stand for what it sees though it is doubted often. Neptune softens Lilith, showing that gentleness is also a great power.

In the sequence of aspects, Lilith transfers potent strength to Moon first, then Moon lends her nurturing knowledge to Neptune’s visions. Water signs are feminine and so are all three factors! Scorpio and Neptune/Pisces, though illusive themselves, are extraordinary seers. The Sun in Capricorn is loving that team, beams down from the heights, leading the way, on the fly, building a Path for others to follow.

The recent Saturn square Neptune, with the sad losses in Africa, Paris, and other places, left many in grief and for some, despair. From suicide to misunderstandings, lack of ability for commitment, to depression, unbounded fear, guilt and shame, religious disappointment, misguided beliefs, distrust. It takes many Moons to heal such rifts in the valence.

This Christmas Moon, a time of gathering, a chance to be close, will help reaffirm our goodness to each other, renew hope.

Venus and Mars, and Mercury and Jupiter are in well favored connections. Venus in Mars’ old sign Scorpio and Mars is in Venus’ sign Libra! Besides this mutual reception, they are at the same degree in neighboring signs, in close accord. Mars, usually super independent, is willing to compromise and see the other’s point of view. Venus wants a deeper alliance in Scorpio, one that is not just social, but genuinely caring, truly safe. Together they can make a fine quality relationship with each other and others depending on them to come through for them. The frosting is they are financially successful too!

Mercury in Capricorn is making an earth trine with lucky Jupiter in common sense Virgo! They have ideas that would fill a galaxy! Workable too! Jupiter plans and organizes; Mercury cracks the whip, no dallying or wasting time! Right to the point. Jupiter is jubilant, Mercury is determined! Winning combination! Jupiter may be picky in Virgo, but is looking ahead, super confident, more cheerful and inspiring than it should be – LOL! Mercury cracks a grin as excellent progress is made! Time to put our heads together!

Yes, Mercury squares Mars. Oops. They blow Mars hot and Capricorn cold. Mercury’s logic, no matter how intelligent or valid, is not likely going to sooth things. Mars in Libra sometimes just enjoys the debate, loves to see what you are made of, maybe not realizing your feelings may be hurt. Understanding may help. Just listen. Or you might be wise to avoid known hot topics, or simply back away if one comes up. Leave if it gets serious. Sometimes you can agree to disagree and change the topic. Whatever works. Be wise. When people aren’t able to listen or change, put your energy elsewhere, in fertile soil.

Mercury sextile Venus links the Venus/Mars and Mercury/Jupiter combos. Those perceptive healing words may make all the difference before anything gets started at all. Mercury in Capricorn tends to be factual about memories, data. It’s cool demeanor can keep a discussion on track, or make the other person think you don’t really care about them, just about how much you know or how smart you are. Take it easy. Give regard to each other, benefit of the doubt. Venus in Scorpio is a kind therapist. She knows when we have reached our edge and need a reprieve to regather ourselves. However, at times she can sweetly throw in the bitter thorn. Hopefully she can remind us that we are loved and of the good things we have done, all of us. Be careful, be kind. Not a time to be blithe.

Chiron, Uranus, and Pluto are the outer planet slow moving cloak we are traveling together in. Uranus and Pluto though not making anymore exact aspects, are staying close, ever reminding us of freedoms lost and sought, changes of climate – political and planetary, coalitions and the collective consciousness. The Internet instantly discloses the enormity of atrocity, and of unbelievable changes, gains for the good – gay and animal rights, ecological repair. Chiron stands between Uranus and Pluto, in Pisces, the sign of compassion, spirituality, looking for healing. Now is the time to remain Steady in the Light.

Special ceremonies, gatherings, Circles, will likely be held, Christmas Eve night to take advantage of the incoming energies since the Full Moon is at 3:11 AM Pacific, while most of us will be sleeping. Whether you Circle or are a solitary practitioner, Blessed Be always ~

New Moon – Capricorn Stellium
Saturday Jan 9 at 5:30 PM Pacific – 19 Capricorn 13

Earth Moon Crescent

The first Moon of 2016 is at 19 Capricorn in the heart of a 4 planet stellium! They have just left Pluto, a great planet of healing and resurrection. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008, cleaning up as it goes. It is now at 14 degrees, almost half way through. Sun and Moon have come along again, in their once a year visit, to lend energy, be conduits of Light to a dark planet in a sign of Karmic duties. Moon nurtures this combination of great sacrifice. Pluto has an extreme responsibility to rebuild, restore what can be, to relinquish what can’t. Moon and Sun, the New Moon, remind us of the beauty of the feminine and masculine, their supreme Union a blend of energies that has always been. Pluto, planet of sharing and profound intimacy, is recharged by their bedrock essence, being impeccably heart to heart.

Just because we can’t see them in the night sky, New Moons are definitely not sleepers! Sun is infusing Moon with as much Light as possible as they travel together! Moon is receptive, carrying that golden Light like a babe in arms! That miraculous update keeps our batteries charged. As the dark of the night sky is lighted with brilliant stars, and we are free to connect with our inner core, the New Moon finishes that round, begins a fresh cycle. We mature, complete, move to the next step. 12 to 13 New Moons a year keeps us in practice, reminds us life has its natural cycles, the celestial channel is always available from every angle.

Mercury is Retrograde coming back to meet them! It is at 29 Capricorn, going back to 14 Capricorn. 29 is generally thought of as the degree of endings, being the last degree of any sign, but when the planet is retrograde, things are not nearly finished yet! Mercury goes through all the signs in about a year, but when retrograde, it’s in a sign more than a month depending on the degrees the retrograde covers. This Rx starts at 1 Aquarius; Mercury is in earthy Capricorn 59 days, twice the average time per sign! That’s a hefty amount of time to be thinking like a Capricorn about Capricorn matters! A lot of changes, reversals, are in the view. The more changes you can make, the further you get!

Venus has just left Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and they are headed to a trine with Uranus! Venus makes the trine Jan 12. Saturn, however, turns retrograde, not making the trine until May 2017! Venus and Saturn seriously want what they want. Saturn has been working hard all along, Venus clarifies which parts of the project have selling qualities and which may be simply work for the love of the work. The observations can help balance the viability of what’s being done, with results that pay the rent, pleasure while holding the goal in mind.

Saturn and Venus consult with Uranus for technical electronic features, speed of light functioning! The results will be unparalleled! Approaching the right organizations or individuals at the right time can get funding for years for this valuable creation! It may be for everyone, the man on the street, students, travelers, corporations! This is a start-up with potential!

Though Moon and Sun have recently squared Uranus, a little scared of how things could have gone wild, they are now coming to trine Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance! It’s good to know how things can go out of control, like a leak in the ethers, so they can be addressed. Some people will never be kept more than their time, nor can you put a round peg in a square hole. Take them for their value as is. Quickly query them of the changes they would make for you and thank them! Shake your head and let the new pieces rattle into place. Awakening to the vitality of new mixes is worth its weight in gold!

Jupiter in Virgo will further organize the best bits, streamline production, gather data and quality materials. The job will get done to maximum perfection, further potential likely. Your health and the health of your career will flourish. Stories will be told and the word of your good works will spread far and wide. Teachers, seminar leaders will enjoy their travels and long term alliances with foreign companies will enhance your reach. Underlying happiness with doing the good work of Spirit will please your Soul.

Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune, silently slipping out the back door…possibly offering help and healing secretly. If thieving, they could get away with it, so use your common sense regarding security matters. If you think something is amiss, go get a good look, with a witness if possible. In Scorpio, Mars can tap powerful community connections, people good at getting finances lined up, people who believe in you and the special things you want to do. Mars in Scorpio is super sexual, and with Neptune, transcendent! Mars can be formidable in Scorpio, but the tenderness of Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces, is beyond words. Neptune’s sensitive perception, psychic abilities, awareness of nuances, can save so much time and bring a bond never to be broken. Many times, less is more.

There have always been Magical thresholds, sometimes called Moon Gates! The Mên-an-Tol, (the hole stone) in Cornwall, United Kingdom is also known as the Crick Stone. This Bronze Age monument has been standing in West Cornwall for nearly 4500 years! See more, it and others all around the world, how to build them. Stones are one of Capricorn’s passions. You can build one yourself!

Maybe it’s your time now!

Jupiter opp Neptune Sea World Turtle Rescue

Florida Sea World released 14 turtles that were brought to the park due to cold related injuries. Big Mama! 250 lbs of Green Sea Turtle, along with another Green Sea Turtle were released in the Banana River.

This aspect is a big part of the Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon Sep 12, 2015!

The day before Saturn returns to Sagittarius, Jupiter probes the Neptune ocean of rhythms, ebbs and flows. It meanders on a glassy sea, gliding hither and yon with little to stop it. It rides the surf at tideline, exploring crevices and creatures, weaving among the shoreline seaweeds. It pounds down on the sands and corals, changing the coastlines of our lives, the perimeters of our existence. There are magic moments of fusion and sudden separations leaving us breathless with insights beyond ordinary belief! Our travels take us into the caves of darkness, on the sea spray up into the luminous sunlight, magical moonlight, scattered to the Four Directions! And all that can happen in one day.

Jupiter is known for lively curiosity, impregnating us with irresistible ideas, becoming expansion and glory as we make them come true! We travel farther than usual, share our stories. Lives are woven together in a continuous tapestry following the path of our adventures. We are all one….

Neptune, the God of the Sea, is ruler of a mighty kingdom! Plenty of room for Jupiter to get its feet wet. So many ports, and they change every time you visit! The Motion of Life is ever emerging, awakening, alive with evolution. Jupiter loves to see what’s next, and Neptune has infinite capacity to absorb and merge all things, whether of mind or Spirit, becoming yet another something never seen before! The Tides are like a giant washing machine, salting, sanding, sudsing away, making ever finer particles, minerals, so it all fits in a knit.

Jupiter may bring big tides, huge ships, big animals at the shoreline from bears to whales, the biggest of their kind! Photographers be ready for very long shoots or exceptional panoramic views, superb underwater photography, telescopic beauty in the night time!

On the inner planes, the unknown may feel safe, as if you had the Guide of the Universe with you, Protector Guardian – dream time astral travel perhaps. Take a chance. A detail may carry you through the eye of the needle, call you to a supreme at one ment, a compassion beyond words. You may come to believe there is life after death, a thread of many lifetimes. There may be a near death experience, or a fill-your-heart appreciation of simple daily things of the precious sacred life you live.

Don’t be confused. It’s a choice. Stay steady in your thinking. But if it quavers you either know your weak spot or you have landed in a zone of magical change and it’s time to let go of what’s too hard and fast in your life. The future is more attractive than the past pains. Watch it, befriend it, check it out. If it tickles and niggles, pay attention. That just may be the next step. Oppositions can stand forlorn on opposite shores or a bridge can be built, a hand stretched across the table. Sometimes a little separation is a huge relief, gives important perspective, time to think for yourself by yourself yet be aware there are others with contributions. We may be apart, but not alone.

Virgo is an incredibly kind sign, human, plant and animal caretakers, and in so many other capacities. Jupiter wants the world to know that. Neptune in its own sign Pisces is the compassionate rescuer, anywhere from addicted humans to injured animals. Sometimes we are on one side needing that care and rescue ourselves; sometimes we are the other side able to give it. A sweet veteran I know delivers free warm meals to an old man I garden with who had a stroke. The vet says he’s been there; he too needed help at a period in his life. Payback time. Let’s be there for each other. Generously.

Neptune is the deepest Pool of the Soul. It takes us to Spirit, fathoms our dreams, knows our most subtle fears, has the compassion of all Being. It makes Music without words, is Divine Love. Jupiter looks across the table at this panorama of humanity and knows its mission. In Virgo it starts right then and there putting puzzle pieces together, making a fusion of the future. It has a year to do its part.

Jupiter opposite Neptune happens the very last day of Saturn in Scorpio, the end, maturity of a 29 year cycle! It is an aspect of faith and understanding, insights. It will secure the knowing of the potent mission Saturn has had in Scorpio – the profound needs we have for true intimacy, financial adequacy, the deepest meanings of our lives, the sacred arts of healing. The experiences of the last 2+ years will provide a foundation for the sacred teachings Saturn in Sagittarius will offer. Together we will work hard for the rights to education for all, the poor, immigrants, women, the children of the world.

Jupiter opposite Neptune intuitively senses our greater purpose; Saturn in Sagittarius travels that Path of Wisdom and makes it so.
