2020 New Year AstroLogical Chart!

HAPPY 2020 to You All!

Leap Year 2020 holds the Tokyo Summer Olympics, NASA’s Mars 2020 mission to study the habitability of Mars, US Presidential Election. Please VOTE! 100 years ago on August 18, 1920, Congress ratified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, making women’s suffrage national law.

2020 New Year’s Day’s Bowl chart starts the year with a FIVE planet Capricorn Stellium in Capricorn that is part of the longest stellium of 2020! It starts Nov 25 2019, completes Mar 30 2020. It includes Jupiter changing signs into Capricorn, Winter Solstice, the Holidays, 2 Eclipses, 20 days of 5 planets in Capricorn, Mercury in Aquarius/Pisces Retrograde, the fateful Jan 12 SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO! It’s a FOUR MONTHS journey. See the Stellium details!  See about Bowl & Bundle Charts!

New Year’s Day Chart! Mercury is with Jupiter! Many extensive confident conversations planning the future. Could be while traveling, meeting with people of different cultures. Lots of news! Four days ago Sun poured golden Light into Jupiter and Jupiter is still aglow, inspired! Sun got some ideas to carry forward, and the Light has just gotten bigger and better for it! Saturn is less than a degree away from its conjunction with Pluto. They have travelled together much of 2019; at last they will merge. Saturn wants to harness Pluto’s extraordinary energy. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is the most potent in 29 years! Pluto is formidable, can be dangerous, but they are basically harmonious planets. However, if the Kundalini Pluto Dragon rises, back up and wait respectfully! On the other hand, Saturn is backed by the citizens, and if there has been misuse of power, funds, Pluto may find himself in bankruptcy or jail. Along with powerful opportunities, this combo can be major sorrow. Saturn and Pluto can both be significant endings and loss of life. This planetary combination is serious, happens on average every 34 years. Mars is in Pluto’s sign Scorpio. They are in harmony with each other. If Mars feels threatened he may rise up with serious intent to defend! If there are rights to be fought for, he can do the job without blinking an eye! If a darkness needs to be exposed, he can do that too with fearless courage.

Neptune is in his own sign Pisces, along with Moon in Pisces, a water sign. Water is sensitive, intuitive, often compassionate. Pisces is lover of music and meditation, but can be the tsunami of feelings when endangered or working a cause to save us. Mother Moon will protect her children, also save you when she can, give you seaweed soup to cure what ails you! Chiron is dancing around, fresh in Aries, excited to be in these record breaking times, taking on leadership expeditions as they become available. New healing techniques may be discovered! Uranus in Taurus, the last planet in this chart grouping, is unpredictable! Uranus loves shocking you. Taurus is dependable forever, except with this planet, LOL! You take your chances! But, one way or the other, Uranus wants humanity to work together in behalf of Earth herself. Venus is in Uranus’s sign Aquarius, has lots of contacts! She is sweetening the pot, maybe getting friends and funding, setting up networking, social media, for Uranus’s projects. She can magically help people see why the project is so valuable to our futures, why the research is so necessary. They make a good team.

2020 opens with four outer planets in Cardinal signs: Chiron in Aries plus Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. We are inspired to act, to raise up. Saturn is in Capricorn, was in its own sign all of 2019. In 2020 it will go back and forth, Capricorn to Aquarius. Neptune is in Mutable sign Pisces. Mutable flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems can change, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Neptune, sign of Spirit, blends and binds us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone. As for Chiron in Aries, he will never stand still! Front man Aries tests and tastes what’s new! Uranus in Taurus shows us the importance of our bodies, and the Earth. Many Uranian changes will be stabilized as Taurus takes hold, steadies and anchors them. Work for the higher good on a long term basis.

Saturn and Neptune, outer planets, in different elements, are in their own signs until Saturn enters Aquarius Mar 21! He retrogrades back into Capricorn July 1 through Dec 16. Saturn in earth and Neptune water! Each stands strong, expert of their place, holding a purity of that planet and sign. Their experiences are intensified! Saturn, the master builder, works steadfastly to make the very best, long worked for, come true in the most efficient manner possible for potent useful results. Neptune, the dreamer, artist, spiritualist, synchronizes all the levels of effort and existence. He sees the times to come, adjusts finer points to fluidly facilitate that time. He holds our spirits to a soulful compassionate outlook. Our efforts aren’t for ourselves alone, but also for creating a unity of all kinds of Beings – humans, the standing tree people, the 4 footeds, the stone people (Capricorn) and land, the great sky beings (Aquarius lightning, clouds and stars), in all the waters, seen and unseen, and more.

There are two sign changes in 2020. Saturn as written above. In Capricorn he maintains solidarity, takes responsibility for giving support, builds for future generations. He is sometimes pessimistic, but usually passes the test, getting wiser and stronger as he ages. Jupiter spends the majority of 2020 also in Capricorn! He successfully builds your team, the chalet/sports lodge, big city complexes, official installations! Materials may be gathered from all over the world, and the best is used in design. There is an air of welcoming to all who come. In time, indigenous lands, plants, animals may be more protected. As Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, Jupiter follows 3 days later Dec 19! They will both then be in Aquarius until Jupiter joins Neptune in Pisces May 13 2021. Jupiter and Saturn will both again be in AQ when Jupiter retrogrades back into AQ July 28 through Dec 28 2021. Saturn in AQ will regulate electronics ie driverless cars, press research to explore and assist humanitarian efforts, challenge internet problems, make wizard like micro technology! Saturn and Jupiter will build networks, restore communities that have failed. Space ventures will have mixed success. Jupiter travelers will make records traveling the airways. Conveyances of all types will enjoy extraordinary advances. Universities will add super curriculums for advanced learning, exploration of the human mind, the interconnectedness of all life and what we used to think was inanimate! Weather predictions will become uncanny! Yep.

Planet of the Year is Pluto! Saturn makes the famous conjunction with Pluto Jan 12. Jupiter makes three conjunctions with Pluto, Apr 4 to the retrograde June 29, Nov 12 the last! Jupiter and Pluto are, at most, only just over 2 degrees apart from Mar 18 to Jul 21! That’s four solid months of dedicated steadfast work together! Jupiter with Pluto can bring excessive extremes. If that is through investments or corporate money we love it! But if the money is mistakenly optimistically invested, we can lose all. Relationships can be painful, we could lose a mate or be cheated on, or as a pair you could become famous, travel forever together and get paid for it! You could hit the last of those nine lives, or have miraculous healing! You could learn some things you wish you hadn’t, or hypnotize your students with knowledge of the unknown, your charisma well documented! The Nov 12 Jupiter conjunction that concludes the aspects to Pluto of the year, is at 22 Cap 51, the same degree as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto at 22 Cap 46, only 5′ of space apart! This conjunction follows the Presidential Election by 9 days, is THE aspect of the Election! What was up back on Jan 12 will be up then too. Circumstances may be much improved, as Jupiter is famous to do, or issues that were ‘bad’ may be exaggerated and much worse. Keyword is ‘much.’

The first aspect of a New Year sets the tone for that year, and the famed Saturn conjunct Pluto is the one, on Jan 12! It has been forming for months, many discussions about the matters afoot. Money, power. Environment. Human rights. Lies versus reality. What should we do? There is pressure about timing – too little too late? Many extraordinary heroes/heroines have stepped up! From many cultures, of many incomes – billionaires to disadvantaged, anonymous to famous, men, women, even children! Since this aspect started well before January 2020, a culmination may happen around this January time, symbolized by an event within 3 days before or after Jan 12.

In the background, Jupiter sextiles Neptune much less dramatically three times in 2020 – Feb 20, Jul 27 and Oct 12. Last year Jupiter squared Neptune. There were lies and exaggeration, major denial, much to worry about, runaway imagination. Many were forced to pray again and again to stay steady and keep the big, long term picture in mind, not forget there are always heroes and heroines that appear in the darkest times. We upped our game and more of us stood up to do our part. Though that part may seem so small to hardly make a difference, collectively it adds up. It became reason to do it because it is simple truth to live for in each of ourselves for simple self respect whether anyone else knows or not. The sextile will offer opportunities. We can learn and teach, give more. It will be easier; we can relax more and see more clearly. In a way, the worst of that part is over. Be your own hero/heroine! Stop using that one use plastic. We don’t have to wait for a law to do that, or wait for a group to gather to plant trees. Do it now! Look to see alternatives others are doing. Keep inspiring others by sharing your discoveries, successes.

The Great Conjunction! The last aspect of 2020 is Jupiter conjunct Saturn in AQUARIUS on Winter Solstice Dec 21! Old Father Winter, Saturn, is being cheered up by sassy Jupiter. Jupiter breezes in, tells Christmas sagas, ridiculous jokes and doesn’t care if you are laughing at him or them! He’s a clever one telling parables and stories with morals. He brings news of where he has been and we all learn. That boy doesn’t stay around long though! He breezes in and blows out! Gotta see what’s next somewhere else! You will miss his big smile and all those ideas, perspectives on life and the bigger than life business ideas as well. Instead of one place, do a franchise! Go back to school and become an electronic expert – computers, vehicles. Get into winter sports! Set up a research station. Have a travel or import/export business if you love the world at large but might not want to travel. How about a bed and breakfast?! Become a ranger in a national park. Gather a world network and run an environmental nonprofit. Get your teaching/coaching credentials! After the holidays you will go back to school and change your major, again, LOL! Keep on until you get there! Keep adding those skills – they will ALL be used!

The most dramatic event of 2018, that started a long chain of events, was the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic crossing at 18 Capricorn 58. The most dramatic events of 2019 were the Nov 11 TRANSIT OF MERCURY at 18 Scorpio 56 and Nov 19 Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER 27 Sag 07!!! They virtually happened together! Mercury crosses the Sun on average 13 times a century. The June 16 and 18 Jupiter/Saturn to Neptune activations were at 18 Sagittarius/Capricorn 43! ALL but one of these events were at the same degree, 18! You with chart factors at 17, 18, 19 were totally connected, especially those of you with your factors in any of these three signs – Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn!

2020 wraps up the sequence! First is that Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto discussed above. March 21 is The Crown!  Next are the two Jupiter conjunctions with Pluto further livening old Pluto up from his secret hiding place. Then there is the Nov 3 Presidential Election followed by the last Jupiter conjunct Pluto 9 days later. What an amazing sequence of events! They will be thought about for years to come. Our lives just won’t be the same, but better!

As in 2019, 2020 has eight aspects. 3+, 1-,  4+/-. That’s not a lot of aspects, but five are potent conjunctions, planets exactly together. Here is the year’s lineup:

Date       #              Event
Jan 12  1  Saturn conjunct Pluto
Feb 20   1  Jupiter sextile Neptune
Mar 21  – The Crown! once
Apr 4     1  Jupiter conjunct Pluto
Jun 29    2  Jupiter conjunct Pluto
Jul 27     2  Jupiter sextile Neptune
Oct 12    3  Jupiter sextile Neptune
Nov 3   –   Presidential Election
Nov 12  3  Jupiter conjunct Pluto
Dec 21   –  Jupiter conjunct Saturn once

In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! 2020 has two exact aspects, the day after Valentine’s Feb 15, and June 10. 2021 will be the LAST YEAR of the 13 years! Mar 31 and May 3. As the years have gone by, Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more

Wishing you a superlative New Year! Live deep, stand tall, love well!

Chinese New Year 2019 - Brown Earth Pig/Boar. Meet Esther!
Esther is a shapely Canadian house pig who has about a million and a half followers on her social-media accounts. She owns trunks full of clothing, and she weighs about the same as three football linebackers. Esther was sold as a micro pig, but is now about 600 lbs! She was born 2012, year of the Dragon, is living the good life as a Pig, especially this year! 

In the US, Tuesday Feb 5, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2019 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is at 5:28 PM PACIFIC at 15 Capricorn! Capricorn is an Earth sign and doesn’t suffer fools, is consummately professional, a successful manager and Builder of the best. Pigs are akin to western astrology’s 8th sign Scorpio, so truly, don’t mess with them. There will be consequences even if the dish is served cold. On the other hand, when they accept you, they are loyal beyond words.

Previous Pig years were 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, now this one 2019, and next is 2031! The last Earth Pig year was 1959. Pig is the twelfth Chinese zodiac sign, after the Dog, and before the Rat! 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.

The whole scoop is Female, brown, Earth Pig. Pig is in the water group, so is happy with wet soil, farmland or flatland. Earth absorbs water. Water and Earth extinguish fire. Earth Pigs are considered communicative social butterflies, popular with friends from all walks of life. They have a strong sense of timekeeping. In general, Pigs are admired for their great fortitude, patience and endurance.

In China, Pigs are considered lazy and not intelligent, OR Pigs are considered to be strategic, analytical and smart. We do know that our barnyard brethren are cognitively as complex as dogs, primates. This is not to say that pigs are equivalent to chimpanzees in intelligence. They are smarter than 3-year-old children! And, to bust a myth, they are perhaps the smartest, cleanest domestic animals known – more so than cats and dogs, according to some experts. Pigs don’t have sweat glands, so they roll around in the mud to stay cool, also to prevent sunburn and insect bites. And they have been known to save human lives.

In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Master Allen Tsai says: Earth Pig will excel in financial or business related careers, especially those require complex analysis and planning. A routine job may be too boring for Zodiac Pig. The more challenging and exciting the work environment is, the more motivated Zodiac Pig will be. They will work hard and accumulate wealth gradually. They can enjoy a prosperous and comfortable living at old age.

Pigs are social animals that under free-ranging conditions live in groups of approximately eight individuals. The groups typically consist of three sows and their offspring. Boars are solitary. 2019 social activities, festive occasions and family reunions are likely to be numerous. It’s a good year for marriage or to have a child. Pigs average 10-12 per litter! Though Pigs rarely seek help from others, they are compassionate and generous, will give others a hand. Pigs never suspect trickery, so they are easily fooled.

Men are optimistic and gentle, not the best with money. These men are also quiet. They love learning but don’t really know how to put their knowledge into words. They’re not conversationalists, but treat everyone warmly. This results in a large social circle. Whenever they run into difficulties, there are always people who stand up to help. Though people will lie to them, more will love them.

Women attend social events whenever possible and treat everyone genuinely. Sometimes they are over-friendly. In their excitement, they forget to give others personal space. Playing with children is one of the things that bring them the greatest joy.

Health If you feel a little feverish and unstable take special care of yourself. If periods of doubt are fleeting, questioning yourself is always beneficial. Changing your lifestyle or living environment brings us to find new resources within ourselves that we did not even suspect. Avoid gluttony. Watch the quality and quantity of your meals and practice a regular sport activity adapted to your body type. Above all in 2019, it is essential to avoid idleness.

Fun FYI: President Harry Truman, himself a Monkey, said, “No man should be allowed to be president who does not understand hogs.”

Famous Pigs:  Meredith Foster, Thomas Jefferson, Ronald Reagan, Hillary Clinton, David Bowie, Jules Verne, Alice Cooper, Simon Cowell, Amy Winehouse, Carlos Santana, Henry Ford, Iggy Pop, Stephen King, Meat Loaf, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Elton John, The Dalai Lama, Wolfgang Mozart, Luciano Pavarotti, Carl G. Jung, Lucille Ball! And, believe me, the list goes on! Many famous Pigs!

Famous Earth Pigs: Fred Astaire, Humphrey Bogart, Ernest Hemingway, Alfred Hitchcock, John McEnroe! A heartfelt welcome and shout out to all the new little Earth Pigs to be born this year!

Gong xi fa cai, my dear friends, especially to all you Piggies!

2019 New Year AstroLogical Chart! Bowl, Capricorn Stellium!

2019 New Year’s Day’s Bowl chart starts the year with a three planet Stellium in Capricorn that is part of the longest stellium of 2019!

  • Dec 22, 2018, the day after Winter Solstice/first day of Capricorn, the day of the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, to Jan 5, 2019,  three planets in Capricorn! Includes New Year.
  • Jan 5, the Solar Eclipse Capricorn New Moon, to Jan 6 Moon and Mercury join to make FIVE in Cap.
  • Jan 7 to 20, first day of Aquarius, Lunar Eclipse Full Leo/Aquarius SuperMoon, FOUR planets in Capricorn. Includes the Jan 13 Jupiter square Neptune, the first outer planets aspect of 2019.
  • Jan 21 to 23, three in Capricorn.

En total, 32 days! During those days there will be three Lunar events, the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, the Solar Eclipse Capricorn New Moon, and the Lunar Eclipse Full Leo/Aquarius SuperMoon! There are only three 5 planet stelliums in 2019. The next is in Virgo, the last is in Capricorn at the end of the year. Capricorn strongly starts and finishes 2019. Commitment, the Builder, achievement. It’s a cardinal earth sign that gets to the point, gets things done, and on time!

Briefly, in the New Year chart, Sun is about to conjunct Saturn, Capricorn’s planet! New Years always start with the Sun in Capricorn, the heart of our commitments, self-fathering. Mars is at Zero Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, rebellious as can be, a leader of new beginnings! Truly a fresh start! Both feminine planets, Moon and Venus, are in Scorpio looking after our underpinnings. Moon is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto, the healer, power broker, astute investor. Venus is embracing the deepest parts of Spirit in a Grand Water Trine with Chiron the Healer/Teacher in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer nurturing all. Water is sensitive, intuitive, often compassionate.

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury in Sag is square old Chiron, whispering funny things to him, tickling him so he forgets himself! And Mercury is mischievously fire trining Uranus in Aries! Some of the craziest ideas will make the news and bring unexpected success, while the creators, Mercury & Uranus, are not surprised at all!

See the complete 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition! Especially see about the two major sister events of 2019 – the Transit of Mercury eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center!

This same chart starts the 2019 Bowl Charts. 

Chart Planetary Patterns - Bundle, Bowl, Bucket, Locomotive, Seesaw, Splay, Splash
Chart patterns that result in us all approaching life so differently…

Rock-a-bye baby…the current Bowl Chart Pattern started in 2018 when outer planet Jupiter moved into Scorpio. Jupiter then became halfway across the wheel from Uranus, with all the other outer planets between them on one side. When Jupiter moved into Sagittarius the outer planets became even less than halfway! Each period when the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars pass from Scorpio through Taurus at the same time, this ‘Bowl’ occurs, all the planets on one side.

Depending on the time of day you are born, the ‘Bowl’ may be at the bottom of your chart collecting, or over the top pouring out its collection or making shade or being an umbrella! At the sides of the chart it may act as a wind scoop or buffer, satellite dish receiver! And so it is symbolically with those of us who have this kind of birth chart. We may always be gathering, sheltering, protecting, guarding what’s ours.

Children, adults, born with Bowl charts can be introverted, very skilled, value their possessions. They love rolling around, but in what they see as their own territory! They may be self-contained with great inner strength. They can be super generous if their Bowl is over the top or tips out abundance. If their Bowl is at the side of their chart they may have super focus and awareness of their surroundings, echo back what they see. The Bowl below may wait to see what falls their way, keeping the keepers, pushing out what doesn’t fit or is outgrown.

Some astrologers say Bowl chart people ‘need’ the part of their chart that isn’t filled. I don’t find that to be true. Many are quite content being exactly who they are, doing what they love. Focused and intent as they are, working for perfection, they already have enough to do, LOL! They do their job, let others do theirs.

A little more about Bowls! In zodiacal order, the starting and ending signs are important as such, and they are usually opposite! They ‘know’ each other because they are opposite sides of the same coin so to speak. The first sign takes up the thread. The information is passed along, refined, enhanced, is the final product at the last sign. That ‘line’ side to side, across the edges of the top of the Bowl can be defining or, as others might see it, limiting. Remember that you are seeing it from your perspective, not theirs.

If the mid sign between the first and last signs is occupied, it takes on importance because it often aspects those beginning and ending signs equally, influencing their actions with the same flavor. That can be in a common configuration to Bowls called a T Square! T Squares are considered challenging, but some relish the challenge, and after all, if you live with it all your life, somewhere along in time, you learn to use it well. That sign at the belly of the Bowl is the T Square point. It may ‘take the point,’ supported by the rest of the planets, taking precedence over all the other signs in the Bowl!

Dec 2019 the same conditions that make Bowls will apply, but Jupiter will also be in Capricorn trining Uranus, in only a THIRD of the wheel Mar 27 to April 3, 2022! ALL the planets span only 104 degrees! That pattern called, a BUNDLE, is the most rare! Exceptional people with fantastic specialty talents will be born! At that time, planetary events will have a singularity, others will be ‘neglected’ simply because there are no planets there. A person born in that period will become an expert – the rest is not their job. Pay careful attention to nurture the best in them just the way they are. Pay attention to their signals. Look ahead to those times so you can be in harmony with this extraordinary energy!

We will be living in a rare planetary time. As the coming years go by, the Bowl and Bundle charts will be common though Bundle charts are the most rare. 2020 Jupiter will be in Capricorn, Saturn will meander on ahead into Aquarius. Jupiter’s last conjunction with Pluto will be Nov 12, 2020, leaving Pluto to be the defining earliest planet. 2021 to June 2, 2024 Pluto and leading planet Uranus will be in less than a third of the chart! Many Bowl and Bundle charts will be possible. Jan 21, 2024 Pluto pops into Aquarius, Jupiter passes Uranus then trines Pluto June 2. From then on, the Bundle chart is not as tight, will soon exceed the degrees of the definition. When Jupiter makes it to Leo mid 2026, we are back to Bowl charts for a brief period. Then, Bowl charts won’t happen again until 2031. For Bundles it will be a long, long time as Uranus and Saturn move out of the trine/third from Pluto and the outer planets spread around the signs.

Many people, Souls, will be called on to have the much needed specialties of these charts to concentrate on planetary matters – environmental and social.

These 2019 dates are when the planets are in 1/2 or less of the chart making a Bowl Chart!

New Year to Jan 17
Jan 27 to Feb 14
Feb 23 to Mar 14
March 24 to April 10
April 22 to May 7

At this point Mars extends past the halfway point in the charts and doesn’t get to the opposite side, opposite Uranus until Nov 24. Moon is with Mars the same day and the other personal planets are also now in just half the chart again!

Nov 24 to Dec 9
Dec 21 to Jan 7, 2020

Many people born these two years will have this powerful configuration. Keep their Spirits well fed. They may quickly absorb, knead, devour, grind up, nibble and nosh, dispatch and dispose of what’s not needed or done with. They will take the polished results to the bank! It’s sort of like panning for gold – a little random, a lot likely!

Chance favors a prepared mind. ~  Louis Pasteur (a Bowl chart with SIX planets in Capricorn, sign of Science – 5 of those from 0 to 7 degrees!)

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!

Long Night Cold Full SuperMoon!
Jupiter trine Neptune, Full Moon T Square, 4 Planet Sagittarius Stellium!

Sunday Dec 3 at 7:47 AM Pacific, 11 Gemini/Sagittarius 40! 

Sagittarius Long Night Cold Full Moon Goverla Ukraine

Moonrise over alpine peak Goverla – highest point of Ukraine! Unforgettable beauty worth the dangerous night-climbing in winter.

When the “Full Cold Moon” rises on Dec. 3, it will also be the first and last “Supermoon” of 2017! A Supermoon is a Full or New Moon at perigee (nearest approach to The Earth). This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. If you are coastal, Surf’s UP!

This Full Moon is perfect to spread its wings illuminating the Jupiter trine Neptune of the day before! That trine is a blessed ‘dreams come true’ aspect that happens two more times during 2018, May 25 through Aug 19! This is the culmination of what has been the preview time for May-August. We have been setting our goals, finding the best ways to make it all happen! The Full Moon spans Gemini, the Word, to Sagittarius, the Pathfinder! Information and purpose. Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! AND, it all links by degrees! All four are at ELEVEN degrees!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, a heads up planet in a down deep sign! Scorpio has the deepest desires, founded from its roots in the Earth, in subterranean caverns with underground rivers! They are not afraid of danger, scuba divers in wild territory. Jupiter is like a periscope, making sure things topside are safe and clear for the undertaking. Jupiter rules longevity and Scorpio rules death. What a mix! But then, Scorpio is ruled by the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes! Jupiter carries that momentum forward. Wise attention to health, avoiding toxic behaviors, keeps us clean and in top shape!

Neptune in its own sign Pisces makes magic! Scorpios are survival experts and fast healing, great healers! In the world, Neptune is the Ocean and its shores. Out of this world it is like a ship far, far at sea. It has to do with the spiritual realm, that we become part of when we meditate. We can feel not just our Self, but that Self in others, universal being – we are one. We have insights to matters in our lives. When we are not sitting we may be sailing, or making extraordinary music, art, hypnotic dance. In business, Jupiter sees the amazing potential that Scorpio runs astutely financially. Far seeing Jupiter expands, the vision Neptune has and makes it a success!

The Moon in Gemini feeds our minds. It insightfully merges clusters of data. makes safe connections. Sun in Sagittarius is watching the progress and with its gift of perspective, plugs in the bits in perfect places that fuel the journey. Sun lights the way and takes them further than Moon ever realized could happen. This Full Moon is like opening the big book of life, full and wide, writing the chapters as it goes!

Venus leads the way of the four planets in Sagittarius, as Mercury has retrograded the day before, Dec 2 at the last degree of Sagittarius! Mercury is still in the 8 day station (turning point), focusing, concentrating, anchoring his ideas. This 18 day foursome, stellium, started Dec 1 and continues through Dec 19 when Saturn enters Capricorn! Mercury is going back to meet Saturn, makes the conjunction Dec 6. Since Mercury crossed this degree as he was going forward, it is a review for him. With Saturn he is making commitments, cementing certain agreements. Saturn charges him to report accurately, no embellishing. Mercury inspires Saturn to think more broadly, to encompass the entire territory, have a truly realistic plan for his future, likely bigger to build than previously expected, but worth the extra time and work.

Venus at 2 degrees stands alone. She is free to do a few escapes or escapades! She was just in Scorpio and has discovered some extra fun things to do! In Sagittarius, she can show the beauty of far lands and peoples. She can teach something unpalatable and people love it! She shows its intrinsic value and how to raise it to respect, to recognize a style that is delightfully different. That old stuff in the back of the garage takes on new meaning! Philosophical discussions are blessed. Everyone prospers!

It is true, Moon and Sun T Square Neptune! Squares can block energy, and can release energy as facing and dealing with the blocks  opens gateways. Sagittarius sees the Path ahead. Pisces can obscure the exact steps until it’s time, then miraculously the fog clears and we’re on! Delays or not knowing are not always ‘bad.’ Denial keeps us from making change. Know that you are safe, be in a safe place and you will be pleased with the steps you can take. They may be small at first as you test the waters. That’s perfect. You are you, do it your own way, but do note your personal progress. Moon in Gemini can overwhelm you with chatter, but then that blanket of input can be what was needed to make a difference. Maybe it acted as a droning, you ignore and relax, and all of a sudden a phrase catches your attention, and some things fall right into place! That information ahead keeps feeding the project as things develop!

It may be a long night cold Full Moon, but you have Sagittarius to keep you warm, and his planet Jupiter trine Neptune to keep you steady at the helm! May Lady Luck be with you now and always!

Galactic Center New Moon!
5 Planet Sagittarius Stellium! Stars Polaris & Betelgeuse!

Sunday December 17 at 10:30 PM Pacific, 26 Sagittarius 31!

Sagittarius Crescent Moon Kinuko Yamabe Craft

Kinuko Yamabe Craft is a Japanese-born American contemporary painter, illustrator and Fantasy artist. She is one of the most widely respected and well known fantasy artists in the United States today. See her art!

In the dark of the New Moon, expanded visions and wisdom anoint our Soul, especially this time!!! This one is conjunct the Galactic Center, the center of our Galaxy, 26 Sagittarius! 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. We see what surrounds us with greater comprehension.

Saturn conjuncts/conjuncted the GC 26th degree Nov 15 to 24, as it did 28, 29 years ago! 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,’ stood still 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.

Saturn is now at 29 degrees Sagittarius, completing his Sagittarius promises. This New Moon tunes us in exactly for one last boost before Saturn leaves Sag and enters his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! We mustn’t forget the long term goals and the recent successes they are built on. Brick by brick. We must keep the greater picture in mind, why we are fighting the good fight, forever expanding in a good way. Keep looking over that Rainbow!

Our 26 Sagittarius New Moon is opposite Polaris, the North Star, and Betelgeuse at 28 Gemini! Polaris is like a little Galactic Center of its own. It stands almost motionless in the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. It has been a ‘guiding light’ to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night, and other navigators. The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens.” Elsbeth Ebertin said ‘The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. If it is conjunct with planets in the angles [ASC/MC], the native will have a good sense of discretion and is able to follow “his instinct”. He clearly recognizes his aims, and will pursue and achieve them.’

Betelgeuze, the main star of Orion, the great winter constellation of the north. According to the old master Ptolemy, Betelgeuze gives martial honor, preferment and wealth. It can indicate a superior athlete, being endowed with outstanding agility and speed of body. And, luck, success and everlasting fame are promised.

Being opposite the New Moon indicates a need to reach across the table and introduce yourself. There will be differences and integration through sharings. Offer your best.

Saturn and the Moon and Sun are part of a five planet Sagittarian stellium! They are all in a connected string starting with Mercury at 15 degrees. Venus is next at 21, then Moon/Sun 26 and Saturn at the final Sag degree 29!

15 degrees is at the mid of Sagittarius tipping the balance toward the completion side. However, Mercury is Retrograde, will go back two more degrees, to 13, to review unfinished ideas. So not quite there yet. Mercury conjuncted Venus the 15th, giving her his accum of ideas so far, for her to carry forward for him. Moon shared sweets with Venus at 10:34 AM Pacific, 12 hours earlier than the New Moon. Have breakfast with someone special that morning! She shared Mercury’s info with Moon. Moon in turn, shares with Father Sun who lights it all up! Mercury’s wee idea becomes important for all to see, so attend this sequence if your chart connects with these degrees. Quite hopeful! Mercury turns forward the 22nd but doesn’t catch up with Venus until Mar 4 at 26 Pisces, square the Galactic Center! They have then been through Sag, Cap, AQ and Pisces, getting a bit of perspective, but for the moment, Mar 4, things are stalled or need extra attention to push on through. Maybe something was left out. Go back to December 15th for the clue.

Venus figures prominently because she first squares Chiron, then trines Uranus in Aries!

The square with Chiron can be a temporary challenge with your love life, business or health. Eat well. Take time to talk things over. Pay attention to what needs doing. It may come and go quickly and show you a weak spot that needs strengthening. Do shore up that area so it doesn’t become a problem down the road.

Venus with Uranus may sweep you off your feet, so don’t forget to make notes about that Chiron item! Both are in fire signs, they have the spark! Fascination, inspiration, wisdom and crazy exhilaration! Since Uranus is retrograde, he is coming back to meet her! She so admires how quick he is on his feet, his dance moves are like blazing lightning! She is impressed by his instant intelligence and he ‘gets’ her! Her long vision is totally understood by him and he raises the ante! They make their exact aspect the afternoon and evening of Dec 20! It’s your Winter Solstice gift if it connects with your chart 24 Sagittarius/Aries! Fantastic and wicked great ideas! Could be a 3 day affair, but it will leave you breathless with memories!

Sagittarius wants to run with it, ride the horse into the wind, skate so fast your hair goes backward! Sag will go anywhere it can, chatting and consulting for the whole enchilada! Different cultures blend and everyone is thrilled to find such grand and gallant solutions! It’s so much fun checking out the possibilities. Your mind expands right in front of your eyes! Moon is no fool, in Sagittarius might surprise you with a charming funny story you can’t resist! Sun has a big heart, wants knowledge to bring people together, to achieve greater goals one couldn’t do alone. Moon is less shy, Sun feels sheltered by her loyalty and love. Under umbrellas in the courtyard, Moon opens the cafe featuring exotic cultural foods; Sun brings the customers!

Saturn at 29, the end of the sign, is mature, experienced. He looks at the strength in the structure. He reminds them to make timely changes – a cafe is only a metaphor for what you might actually do. You might write a story that centers around a family in a multicultural neighborhood and it gets published. Saturn looks reality right in the face and if you listen, he will tell you reasonably your chances for success. He will have sensible reasons for his appraisal. Some things could be adjusted, but if the whole idea is off, I would give it some serious thought and check out other possible options. Saturn can save you a ton of time. If he says go for it, ask him where the most work will be needed. Betcha he will be right!

The Jupiter trine Neptune ‘dreams come true’ aspect is over, but the ideas that came with it aren’t! You have the inspiration. Keep working your plan.

Mars stands unhindered, alone in Scorpio. Yes, Jupiter is there, but they are 9 degrees apart. Mars won’t catch up until Jan 6. For now he is on his own. Mars likes being on his own. Independent cuss, though in Scorpio he may be seeking a mate, a forever mate. Don’t be tricked, trapped, bought or sold, or seduced before your time. If you have good chart combinations, it could be the love of a lifetime. Mars wants to lead, fight for your rights, get you started on your own! In Scorpio he can show you the way to acquiring the funding you need, help you secure your financial footing. He may be inscrutable, or stand right in front of you until you see. You may grow to trust him with your life. But get a credit check and find out his relationship and business history. Common sense. If you feel doing that might threaten your relationship, ask yourself why.

As our last New Moon was in a Bowl Pattern, uncommon, so is this one! A Bowl pattern attracts and collects energy in the many ways its planets are in their signs, the circuits they make or don’t among themselves. The energy is contemplated, examined, sorted, healed, enhanced, energized, redistributed. It may be partially or all held for use by the recipient, or perhaps for safekeeping. When the time is right, all or part of it may be poured forth back into the Universe to hold a specific place in the Light Grid. It may be sent to be a receiver/transmitter. It may be called to in turn heal a weak spot in the valence. You can use this kind of energy sustenance to repair, as an upgrade replacement, or as a system connection of your own. A clean array can attract more amazing energy to mingle with and upgrade to further levels of understanding. No limits! That is especially true with the major magnetic sign of this bowl being Sagittarius! Hopeful, confident, abundant, leading the way!

Depending on time of day and where on earth this New Moon chart occurs, the ‘bowl’ may be over the top of the chart acting as a hood! Rather than collecting from above, it gathers rising energy forms from below or ones floating about with no particular destination. Some are keepers, some are transformed and put to a greater use, others yet are dropped to shift and circulate further until they return and are ready to fit the scenario of the ‘bowl.’ Or they just move on to where they do fit, or are forever wanderers. The keepers, the ones the bowl processes, then may be like a living shower of energy collected, potently merged, united in cause, dispersed into the mainstream to magnetize others.

So here we all stand, present and collected at the Galactic Center together! The Light of all the stars shines on us. Listen for all you are worth. Send in your two cents and be counted. We are one planet’s collective Spirit. There are things we don’t understand yet. Other things we truly know in our Souls.
