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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mars Mutables TSquare with Chiron and Saturn

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gemini Strawberry Full Moon NYC Boni de Oliveira

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May your journeys be entirely inspiring!

New Moon! Red HOT Five Planets in Aries! Jupiter Square Pluto!

Monday March 27! 7:57 PM Pacific at 7 Aries 37!

Aries 2017 New Moon Milky Way Everglades Controlled Burn Mark Andrew Thomas

Milky Way Fire! A controlled burn in Everglades National Park made for a dramatic Milky Way landscape in this mighty panorama by Mark Andrew Thomas!

x
This is no average quiet New Moon! It has FIVE planets in fiery spicy Aries! Venus/Moon/Sun and Uranus/Mercury! Bob Marley sang it, Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!

Venus/Moon/Sun! Love your Mother/Father, the ultimate family union! Aries flavors that combination potently with independence! It is the sign of newborns and Sunrise! Every day truly IS a new day! Venus is the ingenue, toddler to teen to young person. Moon is child or mother, nurtured or nurturing matron. Sun is teen to adept adult. Aries is forever feisty, aiming for independence, rebellious if given a chance! Sweet faced Venus in Aries loves competition, a good fight, fitness excellence, the chance to be #1! Moon in Aries children are often expected to be independent, sometime fending for themselves at an early age, taking care of the other children. Moon is a courageous Mother, maybe a single Mom doing quite well. Papa Sun in Aries loves to adventure with them all, often has an irregular life style, calls his own shots, an inspiring mentor!

  • Venus and Mars are in each other’s signs! It’s called a mutual reception when that happens. Mars is a key planet because it rules all five planets in Aries! But when planets are in each other’s signs, each ‘rules’ the other. Mars is in Taurus, but Venus rules Taurus, so they are ‘more’ equal in this circumstance! Mars is calmed in Taurus; Venus is more frisky in Aries, not her usually sweet as honey self! Mars might take her chocolates and she says thanks, I don’t really want them, so he eats them himself, LOL!It is said the planets can be transposed to each others signs when in reception. You would read Venus in Taurus where Mars is, and Mars in Aries where Venus is! So it would be Mars by the Moon and Sun, and Venus sextile Neptune! Mars would then be in its own sign, pushing the pack! It would have stirred up Moon and Sun right properly as they passed – offering ideas a mile a minute, encouraging immediate action! Venus in Taurus would pledge funding, her loyalty and perseverance to pursue Neptune’s visions. She saw what was a deep value and knows how to show it beautifully to others. They want some too, right away!
  • Venus is retrograde, inconjunct Moon’s North Node in Virgo. Venus knows going back a bit to polish up some details will make a difference! Virgo sometimes doubts, but Venus in Aries has been there before, and confidently encourages a quick experimental shift in the order. It may not come out as either expected, but each step leads to the next, often with better results than thought possible! See more

Uranus/Mercury! Mercury crossed Uranus the day before, 8:05 AM Pacific on the 26th! This is like greased lightning! The lights flash, instinctual insights, awakening at your fingertips! Pure genius! The order may zig zag like a pinball machine, or go so fast straight ahead like a meteor you barely see it, but it’s there! Mercury always brings a hint of duality; there may be parallels! An astounding Name! Computers, conversations, the internet, communications. Astonishing writing for 3 days, 24th, 25, 26! New ideas. Independence and freedom may take the fore In the name of community, world unity! Remarkable new alliances are possible! Take that step forward!

Mercury trines Saturn the 29th the first time of three. Mercury is now in the first phase of it’s 3-part retrograde cycle, slowing to retrograde April 9. See Double Retrograde! Mercury in Aries is quick and logical, gets right to the point. Saturn in Sagittarius is happy, no wasted time, there’s lots to do! Sagittarius has its opinions and Saturn doesn’t always want the divine order disturbed, but darn if Mercury doesn’t have some clever ideas, including how to get them done and be more productive! There could be a whole new department or affiliate! Definitely worth a listen.

Mercury separating semi-sextile Chiron. Mercury is within minutes of this connection, still aware of the Chiron confidences, an exchange of healing and business nuances that make the drive more potent, the sale more satisfying. This subtlety makes us whole, some of it not able to be put into words. But people can feel it and there is an organic trust emerging.

Mars is separating sextile Neptune in Pisces. Mars, the Aries planet, more gentle in Taurus, has invited Neptune to play along! Neptune’s vision sees the whole Universe, makes love with music! Mars in Taurus acts for the Earth! There is a common sense component that Mars wants to fight for in Neptune’s behalf. Neptune intuitively guides, Mars pushes the plow! We all instinctively want to know why should we, and how does it work. Does it really work? These two can put the model together and demonstrate these important points.

On a daily basis, they can solve irrigation problems, set up fire safety. Sitting, meditating, may never be finer, and that massage was the best ever. You were transported. Your body takes on new meaning as the instrument of your beliefs. Walking the water’s edge shows you a special place within your Soul as you commune with yourself across the textures of time and place.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces is with us for awhile. They are less than 3 degrees apart now. Saturn will retrograde April 5 to make the second square April 30. If Chiron is marriage, as the Magi Society says, then this is clearly not a time to set your date unless you have overwhelmingly other favorable aspects and neither of these planets is in one of your love life placements! SEE your astrologer. Saturn can be hardship and sorrows and the old words for Chiron are wounded, healer, teacher. Doesn’t pay to take chances with these two in a challenging aspect with each other. Saturn is career, reputation, fatherhood, age, retirement, what you have earned, laws. Chiron is also thought to be business, health care. They are currently at odds with each other. You can easily see that with current politics.

Archangel Gabriel Sounds His Horn. Ft. Worth, Texas

All of us are making breakthroughs as we hit the wall, face our worst fears, surrender to what seems inevitable! We see what doesn’t work, so we let it go. We turn to find there ARE other ways, plenty of them in fact! And they are doable. We seek other options. There are certain responsibilities we must take; some are not ours to do. No guilt. Some matters need a ton of education. We need to place our seeds in fertile soil, nurture them, give them time to grow in dignity at their own pace. Sagittarius and Chiron the healer teachers are being called. Archangel Gabriel is blowing his horn! Saturn wants the facts that can make the possibilities happen! Sometimes the data counts, tells the real story. We want the Truth, nothing but the Truth….

The second Jupiter square Pluto is exact in three days, March 30! At worst this combo can be mean and bullying, goes to extremes and exaggerates. It can also be our wake up call. The wounds or ignorance behind this behavior need healing desperately. Change conniving and manipulation to dialogue and listening when possible. Otherwise, take real appropriate measures to secure your safety. Jupiter is in Libra, sign of balance in relationships; Pluto is deep relationships. Relationships need reassessment since Venus, ruler of Libra, is also retrograde at this time, making 180 shifts. From one side to the other we find a rooted center ground, can manage the winds that blow by. Pluto in Capricorn, and Venus are strongly about financial matters, and Jupiter makes it a big matter. With Venus retrograde caution is advised. Some changes will need immediate attention, and others will be way better left alone until a more favorable time. An experienced, trusted confidant or advisor is needed perhaps. Health may be challenged, Jupiter at times exaggerating conditions, Pluto taking them to extremes. Deep in the fire then rising from the flames! Compulsive obsessive behaviors need to be held in abeyance. Think of long term consequences and goals to help yourself stay on a good course. We want a greater Truth to prevail. We are rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. See more!

This ARIES New Moon is the power that helps us stand true to ourselves no matter the challenge!

Full Pink Moon!

Pluto T Square: Sun/Moon Straddles Jupiter Opposition Uranus!

Monday April 10, 11:08 PM Pacific at 21 Libra 33

Full Moon Pink Lunar Eclipse Rassouli - Journey of Love

MERCURY in TAURUS RETROGRADE yesterday! That means Mercury has been in station, ‘standing still,’ the last 4 days and remains so the next 4 days! Mercury stations are a time of focus, absorbing, mulling things over, stabilizing our mind, paying a deeper attention. As we stand still, if we accept it, there is a calming. Any minute motion is registered. It’s like that time when someone has you be still and they ask you what do you hear? And it’s amazing what is there that you take for granted, or just never noticed before. The world is humming all around us all the time. In Taurus it’s an earthy awareness, organic. Our bodies, what our bare feet feel, the texture of the soil. Beauty at our fingertips, the sounds in our ears, the rustle of the leaves or a tiny insect landing. Take the time it takes to tune in to these special things, and the dear people around us. Really listen. It’s a gift.

This Full Moon is during the Double Retrograde! These first 6 days of Mercury Rx, April 9 – 15, are during the finishing Venus Rx, a DOUBLE RX! See more

This Full Moon embraces FOUR outer planet aspects! It has an intense 5 planet T Square in Cardinal signs, Pluto at the point! See the red triangle in the chart below please. Three of the planets, one at each point, are outer planets, indicating long term effects!

1. Last month’s March 12 Full Moon at 22 degrees activated the Jupiter/Uranus opposition that was then at 21/22 degrees. This April 10 Full Moon straddles the Jupiter opposition Uranus! Both of these Full Moons are keeping the March 2nd 22 degree Jupiter opposition Uranus alive, processing its messages! 

The TSquare set starts with the Sun opposite Jupiter on the 7th! If you count the 5 days before that as an active range, it starts the 2nd! Extraordinary proportions and options! The sequence is first Jupiter, then the squares with Pluto, followed by the aspects to Uranus! The set finishes with a bang, the Sun conjunct Uranus April 13! You can easily allow 3 days for it to settle and things move on to other matters, which takes us to the 16th. This important set takes from the 2nd to the 16th, two weeks. It’s not just a come-and-go Full Moon, it’s a process, an experience that reveals observations and learnings from different vantage points. It is important because it ties to the understanding of the many years long Uranus square Pluto and the current Jupiter square Pluto. Please continue reading….

1a Moon goes through the process more quickly. She starts the same afternoon and finishes the next day.

Moon crossed Jupiter before the Full Moon at 3:58 PM Pacific! There’s a great feeling of optimism about relationships, almost feels like new kin! There’s a camaraderie, willingness to journey, a seminar together. Dance, a symphony or play, a meal together would be lovely, thank you!

  • Concurrently, Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn 6:45 PM Pacific. Both water planets, there is a likeness, a knowing. But in square signs, Moon prefers being above board and sharing in Libra, while Pluto in Capricorn guards the well. There is a formality. It wants control, and confidentiality, may not trust or be trustworthy. Maybe it is time to face the consequences and fess up.
  • She Moon opposes Sun, makes the Full Pink Moon at 11:08 PM. It may be a meet and brief, an intriguing exchange. Aries moves on, leaving a legacy if you are quick enough to catch it. He’s excited, wants to go share with many more others! Libra is left lingering and longing, advocating for new possibilities, lining up the team.
  • After the Full Moon, Moon opposes Uranus in Aries at 4:31 AM Pacific on the next day. There is a break for freedom, a surprise potential! The local social troupe takes wings! Your new friend may already be gone, inviting you to visit or meet soon at a third place!

Though not one of the four outer planet aspects, Mars figures in the T Square too. Moon inconjuncts Mars, Mars is semi-sextile Sun/Uranus. Moon is in Libra the sign opposite Mars’ sign Aries. Moon knows what to do with unruly children and has a tenderness for their courage and that they are struggling to grow up. Doesn’t matter how old you are! She can be annoyed, but none the less tries to instill manners, help them see the effect they are having on others, how a different approach can work to their favor. Mars sometimes needs to grow into these ideas over most of their lifetime. First they must be independently themselves! And Moon in Libra may need to do some growing up in that regard – less people pleasing and more spine! Mars in Taurus has to learn peace and patiences while in the midst of action and conflicting needs! No easy task, but doable.

Mars in Taurus in a semi-sextile, a sign ahead of Sun/Uranus in Aries, can be steady and soothing or feel like a boulder in the road! Mars in this position can be the strength and shelter of an oak tree in the storm, watch for openings, lead and persevere when Sun/Uranus would be distracted, give up, not wait. Mars in Taurus can find Sun/Uranus quite unsettling. Or they may be exactly the provocative inspiration he was needing! Once ignited in forward motion he can be Thor through the massive gates!

1b The Sun moves slower than Moon and provides the two week backdrop for Moon’s blitz!

Sun opposed Jupiter 2:39 PM Pacific on the 7th, making it known there are important differences, some space is needed for both to be honored for their own sake. Jupiter, though flexible, still has its prerogatives and opinions, Libra its own sense of etiquette. Aries isn’t usually as concerned with such sensitivities and is annoyed by all that time such social negotiations can take. Jupiter can get carried away with ceremony, and Libra has to make up its mind, be polite to all parties. Sun in Aries, the great Light of Dawn, primordial, shines in a moment, potently lighting the day, asking no one when or what to do! It just does its business and the rest of the world gratefully complies! Jupiter in Libra can put up shapes and funnels to enhance or commandeer such light, but much of it simply blazes its Path! Light is Light!

  • Sun squared Pluto 5:45 PM Pacific April 8. Feelings, ego, heart and Soul could have been hurt. Sun in Aries, and cardinal get started signs, are generally quick to forgive; Pluto in Capricorn may not. Go gently with disagreements that could have irrevocable effects. Better not to have people feel threatened and dig in. Change may take a lot more work and time when that happens. Admit your own part in things, clean up old messes. Give credit for credit due. Open up your heart and break the chain.
  • The last aspect of the T Square is Sun conjunct Uranus 10:29 PM Pacific April 13! That is a golden wild card! Be different, take a chance, BE a new friend! ONE can be a fabulous number! Many #1s can be the tide of change! Network as far and wide as you can! Invent a unique solution! Be the leader! Extend the invitation! Astounding and glorious! Entirely ALIVE!

2.  This Moon witnesses the very last three days, of being within 5 degrees of closeness, of the long time Uranus square Pluto! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It has been in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17! Uranus is then leaving Pluto behind, and doesn’t go back! The Kundalini has been released! It doesn’t mean these matters are over at the snap of your fingers, not by a long shot. They are being synthesized within our lives, profoundly embedded, wedged into the most private places. They are becoming a strong network of support we gradually don’t even think of consciously anymore. See more

How far, how wide, how high can you go?!?

3.  Though Jupiter is turning away from Pluto, he is still 2 degrees close, and this aspect is part ot the powerful Full Moon T Square! It is fading, but is keeping the March 30 second Jupiter square Pluto in our attention! There may be a calming, but powerful conditions continue to prevail. Still keep watch for secret agendas and alliances, rights forfeited for lack of resistance, lack of attention, apathy, disbelief that could happen. Jupiter in Libra offers a look at the other person’s side, education and negotiation when people are treated with respect, their differences valued. I repeat, we want a greater Truth to prevail. We are rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. See the last paragraph of the New Moon above, and See more!

4.  The fourth outer planet aspect is the upcoming second Saturn retrograde square Chiron April 30! It is already less than 2 degrees.

Saturn square Chiron/Venus. Venus retrograde in Pisces squares Saturn twice, April 8, two days before the Full Moon, and when Venus is not retrograde April 21. There are costs and the budget may not be enough. Love is not what it used to be or expectations are too high. Reconsider values, high priced or a super bargain! Out of work partners may not be chosen. Self indulgence may be curbed. A vow to work more effectively could get the job done against the retrograde odds. Hold off on beauty choices – remodels, wardrobes, elective surgeries, entertainment ventures.

Venus ALMOST conjuncts Chiron! She gets into the 26th degree, makes her station there, but turns forward at 26 Pisce 54, while Chiron is at 26 Pisces 31! It’s very, very close, a whispered invitation, reminder, a presence for several days, can see her, but no consummation. It’s haunting and taunting because Venus is love, and the Magi society says Chiron is the marriage planet! But them squaring Saturn indicates it’s not the time yet, or if proceeded with, a  karmic union weighty with learning. A strong yearning at the time may surprisingly fade away and be forgotten sooner than expected.

Saturn and Chiron are both dedicated. Saturn in Sagittarius wants the knowledge, the faith in futures, commitment that has meaning more than money. It works hard, gets tired and down on its knees at times. It fathers a structure that withstands the storms. Saturn wants good standing as a parent, and among his peers. Chiron is a good business person, and in Pisces makes almost surreal intuitive choices. Saturn and Chiron could compromise. Saturn is practical, and could be more generous than usual in broad minded Sagittarius. Chiron in Pisces wants healing and can understand, though they may not sell out certain beliefs. Work with the things where give and take is possible. Let the rest go for another time. Let the Soul do its work. See more!

There have been tests of faith, need for keeping the long term in mind. Challenges take many forms, different for each of us. Determined mindfulness and steady action bring significant, even historic results. Minute by minute, stay focused on common sense solutions. Tipping points are achieved, thresholds crossed! There will be winning changes!

In gratitude for your profound work.

FULL Harvest Moon, LUNAR ECLIPSE – ASCENSION?!
New Moon – Venus Frosting!   

Full Harvest Moon, LUNAR ECLIPSE – ASCENSION?!
Sunday September 27, at 7:50 PM Pacific – 4 Aries 40

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon September 27 2015

Jupiter in Virgo’s, Saturn in Sagittarius’ 1st Lunar Eclipse!

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon DiagramThis image gives you an idea of the relative sizes involved in a Lunar Eclipse! Earth takes the Solar energy directly. Moon glows reddish. By definition, we have Sun and Moon opposite each other, but in no way are they equal! Sun is clearly dominant, yet, Earth and Moon are together, a system of their own, far enough from the Sun not to be pulled into the Sun. In their case, distance is the equalizer.

Most Full Moon’s shine brightly in our sky, lighting the land with their beauty. Moon is apart from Sun in the opposite sign, that sign illuminated as equally as the Moon can ever make it be! Separated, they each stand on their own merit. In the line up of an Eclipse, Moon is temporarily shaded by Earth from Sun’s rays. The Lunar energy is still there, but Sun’s energy is translated by Earth, reflected, bent by our atmosphere. We as humans, on the dark side of Earth, become transmitters, sending to Moon, and receiving from Moon without Sun’s direct distraction. Though Sun is bigger and brighter, the Moon takes precedence.

So I ask you to put your energy primarily with the Moon in Aries! Aries goes well with Saturn‘s now fellow fire sign Sagittarius. Moon has just left a trine with Saturn. Though the Moon & Saturn are of opposite signs, Cancer and Capricorn, a trine brings that energy of Mother/Father into harmony rather than be separate. Aries and Sag initiate and teach, enjoy sports, are thrilled to walk, race, a new and profound Path together. If the Ascension happens to YOU, it’s a good time to do it!

Moon in Aries gets adjusted by coach Jupiter in Virgo. Shortly, the Moon will be 150 degrees askew of Jupiter. If Aries doesn’t mind a quick pit stop, Virgo is well organized, Jupiter to the point, it’s done and good to go. Virgo has tips, Jupiter confidently cheers you on! Moon in Aries is a leader. Women get a head start. Children are quick to follow! Just keep a watch on them! Jupiter is inspired by Moon’s fearless quality, and writes them into the story as heroines! Perhaps they will travel together for a short time.

I like this traditional saying, ‘All that fall shall rise again.’ As with Persephone and Demeter, or from a fallen dry seed comes a green sprout bursting with new life! At this darkening time of year, it is good to make alliances, good to share. The Sun is moving forward to conjunct Mercury while Mercury retrogrades back to meet Sun! Kiss! Message exchanged and remembered. The exact conjunction will be made Sep 30 at 7:38 AM Pacific. In horary astrology the Sun this close with Mercury is called Combust. Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen. It can be read as burned out, weak, no mind of its own. Or it can be free of materialistic concerns, feel extraordinary power, defy orthodox direction due to its own natural knowing.

The third planet is Neptune! Sun is moving up to inconjunct Neptune Oct 1, while Mercury is retrograding back to inconjunct Neptune Sep 29. Jupiter was opposition Neptune Sep 16. The Lunar Eclipse keeps Neptune in play. The Sun and Mercury inconjunct peek in to see what Neptune’s insights are. They look for the magic, the imagined, the Vision! Neptune is not always so verbal, so the Sun and Mercury may be enchanted for awhile, sure that something will come. They have never quite seem something like this before. But if there is not enough ripple, they move on. Libra is a Cardinal sign, always initiating new relationships. Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is often more interested in other worldly dimensions, less so in the everyday social carryings on, less in unimportant chatter. They just may not be able to find a way to communicate with such a different way of being.

Mars is still considering its actions in view of its recent 10 day square with Saturn culminating Friday the 25th. You may have been humbled and be recovering from some road rash, as well as having rested a bit and feeling less tired and frustrated. Mars may be young and feisty, but old Saturn often still calls the shots. Mars was trying to offer a new time saving method though, so if you made Saturn take a few moments, you may have made an impression and be called back for another interview. But don’t let the sly elder do a Kokopelli trick and steal your ideas! Keep your attitude clean and respectful. No contempt or criticism. Rather, ask how can we do this?

The North Node in Libra is between Mars and Saturn, semisextile Mars, sextile Saturn. Time is of the essence. Saturn stabilizes, Mars offers action, Initiation. North Node seeks a balance of respect for experience and authority, and breaking new ground. North Node gets a little scared sometimes, Libra is unfamiliar energy, since the South Node, the Past, in Aries, ruled by Mars is the independent warrior. It’s not used to sharing power with others. But Mars acts on instinct, rarely second guessing itself, and the semisextile with Mars reawakens fierce memories of capable action! Since the South Node was their forte, Libra North dares to laugh, and apologizes gleefully as Mars sometimes bullies its way through. Someone had to do it! Finally! North Node sees the long term plan Saturn in Sagittarius has in mind, and feels more secure to take a chance. If conservative Saturn does it, anyone can, and probably should! Saturn may be gruff at times, but North Node Libra is learning manners and shows Saturn the benefits of a more polished performance.

Mercury is leaving a square too! It first squared Pluto in Capricorn Sep 9. The second square, the 24th, just 4 days before the Eclipse, is during Mercury’s retrograde. That reminder, second encounter, will have a certain potency if it affects factors in your chart. Mercury is still in close range. You think Saturn is sly, try Pluto in Capricorn! However, if there are any flaws, they hit the mark precisely! It can save a lot of time in the long run though changes could be costly. So if you are feeling a tad unsettled and don’t know quite why, nevermind the why and take a good look at the matter itself. No denial, no sweeping under the carpet. Better to take care of it now rather than have more consequences down the road when the third and last aspect is made after Mercury goes direct. That aspect isn’t until Oct 22, so it gives you time, but not a lot. The sooner fixed, the better the quality of your progress without that nagging feeling that something is riding in the background. See what could be stopping you, remove the thief of time. Rethink, rebalance, add some beauty to the mix! Seek new alliances of integrity.

So these two important preceding aspects to our Eclipse have broken through barriers. Mars wants to make offerings to Saturn and Saturn is wondering if he can accommodate Mars’ request. Mercury has been dancing around the Serpent Pluto in Capricorn, taking certain chances. Nipping at Pluto’s heals, there is a quickening of Pluto’s attention since few dare such encounters! Mercury is especially smart in Libra, too clever to be brushed off. Mercury just tries another angle until it finds the door. Mercury in Libra has lots of allies that are likely to know some of Pluto’s allies, so an introduction may be offered. Pluto would be wise to listen and court Mercury as an asset. Mercury in Libra may be ultra considerate, but they are also brilliant negotiators, and fast at it. Not a time to sign papers though.

For those of you steeped in the ASCENSION, and those of you who have never heard of it, please see Steve Beckow’s post at The Golden Age of Gaia. He references several people including Matt Kahn, Patricia Diane Cota-Robles and SaLuSa. Sep 26, 27 and 28 are all considered important dates, especially the 28th. Beckow discusses where the energy is coming from – gamma ray photon light from the Galactic Core (The Pleroma), with this intensity only once every 3,600 years! Here is Trish LeSage’s take on 5D Consciousness. There are 3 Waves of Ascension that are said to occur between now and mid summer 2016. Beckow discusses what if you don’t make the cut. And some of us won’t. We all have our part to play, before, during, and after.

Saturn, now in Sagittarius, will conjunct the Galactic Core/Center, at about 27 degrees, closely continuously March, April and May 2017 when Saturn retrogrades. It will form exact aspects twice during that time. It makes the third conjunction Nov 24, 2017. That will certainly be a telling time!

May all your journeys be blessed and you be blessed exactly as you are.

Libra New Moon – Venus Frosting! 
Moonday October 12, at 5:06 PM Pacific – 19 Libra 20

Libra New Moon Lunar Buddha Danielle Winter
By inspiring artist Danielle Winter, Bonn, Germany. Gratefully used by permission.

New Moons have two sides to them ~ one is unseen in the quiet in the dark time. The other is getting super charged with Sun’s energy, as Moon travels with the Sun. In Libra, Moon balances the key portals, modulates the frequency, exchanges on bright wavelengths, intricately and specifically connects all the right places! There is a satisfied hum of the Creator generator, and a warm radiant mystical glow that relaxes the fibers of Being to complete reception. Frisson and Fusion at once.

This New Moon, is delivering Libra’s message, seeking poise, the blending of both/all our abilities. It is the representative of fine art, ballet, exquisite symphony. It is the envoy of negotiation, collaboration, subtle creation, synthesis, separation, initiation. It acts alone in inspirational maximum integrity. It gives hand written invitations to ones worthy of spiritual partnership.

Uranus opposite in Aries has electrified the combination! Sun was exactly opposite the night before, 8:49 PM Pacific. Moon was opposite less than 2 hours before at 3:20 PM Pacific! Batteries charged, shaken and stirred, loosened for more of Sun’s infusion at 5:06 PM! Aries seeks independence, and Uranus freedom, but they are group initiation as well! Libra is social and seeks candidates for the cause. Libra parlays peace so more can participate. The potential swells like a tide, sweeping unique individuals together into contribution like never before!

Intelligent Mercury is now Direct, going forward, in Libra. He is with the North Node, letting go of old Aries fire and fight, looking for equality and sharing the best each has to offer, working together. Mercury is in serious sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius, thinking of the long term, wanting to make commitments, restructure the old patterns and rules. Mercury longs to learn more, signs up for specialty schools. Alliances can be formed with people in charge, mentors, elders. Experience makes a difference. Time takes precedence and things get done as attention is focused where it counts. Old debts, Karma, can be honored and stamped paid. Dharma, the work of the Soul, is recognized and hammered into fine metal.

Mercury is semisextile Libra’s ruler Venus, Venus now in Virgo. There is work to be done, people will be brought to do it. Details are in a beautiful array, art in production. Budgeting assures the project. Dietary health is key. Tell the story, write the blog. Use tasteful illustrations in marketing and advertising.

Venus and Mars will each join lucky Jupiter in Virgo! Mars is first Oct 17, Venus will join on Oct 25. Mars and Jupiter are confident and frisky together, might take a little trip to get new project materials or go off to a seminar on writing or caretaking, enjoy a health spa. A little productive time away feels good. A little caution is in order. Jupiter may need to be reminded of the budget, not go quite as far as the map shows road, be careful physically, less time in the Sun. Venus will still be back at the shop, but getting their calls, quickly calculates what is needed for the adjustments. When it’s her turn, she and Jupiter can be extraordinarily lucky together! They can make an irresistible super presentation! Time for a celebration party bringing collaborators and customers together for more sharing and excitedly brainstorming their next ventures! Expenses could be high, but likely well worth it. Plan it!

Venus won’t catch up with Mars until Nov 2! They will bring the gifts of their mergers with Jupiter to each other! They will be steadily organizing, finessing every situation and item within their ability to love up. What Venus wants, Mars wishes he could give! Where Venus makes beauty, Mars takes action. Mars in Virgo is not generally so sure of himself, but Venus loves him, gives him the handsome blessing and Mars is delighted! He gets the tickets and takes her to the Ball!

The New Moon is a lively and lovely springboard!

WESAK Full Flower Moon – Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow
Sunday May 3 at 8:42 PM Pacific – 13 Scorpio 23

Taurus 2015 WESAK Full Flower Moon Dyer
Though this is at Bow Lake, Banff, Alan Dyer of Alberta, captures a scene worthy of the Buddha’s birthday celebration, WESAK, in the Himalayas! 

Full Moons both divide and unite. Sun and Moon are as far apart as they can get in our heavens, giving each space to be themselves, the least fettered by the other. Unlike a New Moon Merger, they have spread their skills to the far winds, and being separated, they can see each other respectfully for who they are uniquely rather than so at one ment they see the New Moon merger rather than their difference. Since January, the Full Moons of the signs are coming before the New Moons, so the appreciation of difference comes first, setting the stage for a respectful and more whole merger of equals. This will be true until May/June 2016 when there will be two Gemini Full Moons, and the pattern then reversed, New Moons before Full Moons.

Full Moons unite anyway because they negotiate, offer options for partnership, enhance each others standing. Division is like multiplication when we each bring our skills to the project! We get to know each other, different ages, faiths, races. A rich blend creates more than was ever expected, has a life of its own!

The Moon in Scorpio has a nose for power and primal forces, wants to share, is a natural healer, is deeply intimate, stands with you from birth to death. They have lots of cards, some of which you will never be privy to. They are superb at recycling and detoxing, cleanup. Successful research and medicine, corporate funding, behind the scenes access are possible. Perfumes, mushrooms and vampires, and fine wine.

The Sun in Taurus, the sign of the Buddha, is steady in the Light. What Scorpio knows, Taurus, the knower of lasting value, brings to the surface to be tended and nurtured. Gentle Taurus, slow and safe, listens to the wild beasties, hears their song. Super strong Taurus is literally capable of carrying the Scorpio knowledge, so Scorpio is willing to share with them. Taurus is often a founder, founding organizations, funding teachings. Taurus’ staying power is surety there will be time enough for the teachings to spread and sink in. This pair are formidable fixed signs with forever intentions. Give them the job.

Mercury in Gemini is just barely separating opposition Saturn Sagittarius, having been exact at 1:35 AM! May 1 or 2 may have brought some harsh or fearful, sad words or thoughts about responsibilities or commitments, credibility matters. Calm yourself, face realities, focus on doing the best you can do in a timely fashion.

Venus has only four more days in Gemini, is separating a semi sextile Mars in Taurus (one of Venus’s signs). Values need to be put into action, loving appreciative words need to be spoken. Actions need to be stabilized by additional positive information that makes you more fully enjoy your work.

A SAME degree Jupiter Leo T Square is the big affair of the day! Getting where you want to go may not be so easy. But often, that IS the test. You may not have directions, or there is an error, it is the ‘wrong’ right day, someone else can’t go. Trust is called for. Trusting yourself, your feelings, that you can do on your own. Teachings may not be accepted just yet. Good intentions may not make it happen. The signs are all fixed, so give things time. Go with an open mind, you may be the one who changes! Be exuberant, but not so pushy they dig in. If you are the listener, breathe and breathe, relax. No matter how excited others are, you still can make up your own mind, and, oh heavens, disagree! Maybe the whole show never comes to pass and you save time and money! Or, there could be breakthroughs! All that stirring up was just what was needed for people to see!

♦ Pluto Capricorn Bow Pattern Maybe you haven’t heard of a Bow Pattern. It is two planets opposite each other, in this case the Full Moon, Sun and Moon, with a third planet, in this case Pluto, at a 1/3 and 2/3s point between them. Sun in Taurus is trine (120 degrees) Pluto Cap in the first and last Earth signs. Sun is making the approach, so Light is coming to darker Pluto Cap. Taurus has an inevitable quality, not easily dissuaded once in motion, and the Sun is indomitable. Expect a brightening, a steadying, a sensible reasoning. Sun trine Pluto is famous for successful major corporate business. Things that have been on the table for awhile, barring the Jupiter T Square matters, may come to fruition.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile (60 degrees) with Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn! There is harmony of Scorpio/Pluto and water/earth compatibility. Sextiles are enriched by different elements giving more opportunities, collaborations. Moon in Scorpio handles the monies adroitly, while lawmaker Capricorn drives the work force, is the Captain of Time. Scorpio is the delving psychoanalyst, while Capricorn the Builder composes the structure. They are adept at rebirth, renewing the old, archaeological to historical.

North Node in Libra, on a 19 year cycle, now conjuncts fixed star Vindemiatrix, inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces.

  • North Node Libra  North Nodes in general are thought to be where we are balancing the old opposite sign in our chart. Sometimes there is a little fear getting used to new territory, so opposite where old skills are held. Aries is opposite Libra, a supreme independence versus the can’t-make-up-your-mind Libra impotence. Yet Librans are tigers when they get to court as lawyers, are in a political fray, or strategize chess or wars. They are not shy at socializing! Relationships are a must. Libra is amiable and accomodating. Collaboration and partnership make good sense, independence need not be lost.
  • Vindemiatrix.  Add these factors: On the dark side, Astrologer Robson says V is Saturn/Mercury by nature, hence gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows, the WidowMaker. Ebertin & Hoffman, differently say it gives mental concentration, great for architects and businessmen. If it is badly placed, and especially so if in conjunction with Saturn or Neptune, there is a tendency to depressive moods, skepticism, a distrustful nature. Bernadette Brady takes us back to that V is in Virgo, sign of harvest. It offers the taking time to harvest what you have planted, to patiently collect the things that you like or need. Art collectors, stamp collectors, people who gather facts or things are expressions of this star.
  • The inconjunct with Neptune throws one off kilter a bit. With things slightly askew, there are shifts in perspective, leaks to the outside, infusions seep inside. Secure all the openings, or allow the ventilation, observing the opportunities as they come by, or you go by them. You can adjust by both letting go, making new space, and deliberately making an oblique foray worth the exploration! New relationships, what you might never have considered before, may be formed out of seeming chaos. Neptune softens the boundaries. There is confusion, some fear of the unknown, yet new awareness. Misunderstandings become compassion. Balance is differently weighted. Equality is redefined. Beauty is a mystery, amorphous, exquisite, shimmering before your eyes. Dreams may be your cues.

 In the background, Jupiter in Leo is slowly closing on the marvelous super trine to Uranus in Aries on June 22! If it connects with your chart, in Fire signs there is an undercurrent of excitement, confidence. Challenges will work out, be met. Teaching and learning will be happening all along, go to seminars! Unusual writings may be published. World wide matters will see heroes and heroines. Education for rights, human and animal, are being sounded. Fame and Fortune are possible! Fun and travel. Make university choices by June 22, the exact last aspect, but not during Mercury Retrograde May 18 to June 11. See an astrologer for your personal best dates. The philosophy of a lifetime may be selected.

Make it count because our next super favorable major Jupiter/Uranus combo isn’t until Dec 15, 2019 and it happens only once that time! It is in Earth signs, 2 degrees Capricorn/Taurus. If it doesn’t connect with your chart then, you will have to wait for another 4 years after that!

May your Full Flower Moon Circle be Blessed. Happy Wesak, Namaste.

Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
Sunday May 17 at 9:18 PM Pacific – 26 Taurus 56

Taurus, Buddhist Woman. Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during 77th birthday celebration of exiled spiritual leader Dalai Lama in Kathmandu.

A Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during the 77th birthday celebration of the exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Kathmandu, Nepal

Our Taurus New Moon is inconjunct the degree of the Galactic Center and conjunct the Fixed Star Caput Algol! One is as wonderful as the old lore of the other is bad, bad, bad! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! It is at 26 Sagittarius, the lucky sign of the Traveler and Teacher! Taurus teaches through Earth wisdom, by connecting through touch, symbolically supporting by planting crops. Taurus teaches the Peace of the Buddha and has body sense through Yoga and organic eating. Inconjunct indicates some kind of a query, a slight disturbance, a course correction.

 Old timer astrologers considered Caput Algol, 26 Taurus 23, at worst to be the most dangerous star in the heavens, beheading, the Demon Star. The list of famous people having it strongly in their charts will almost make you a believer. Yet, a binary blinking, pulsating, eclipsing double-star, it is also associated with extreme creativity! There’s hope! At the same time, there is a symbolic constant death/rebirth scenario, that puts you in touch with intense maximum experiences. Burn out or ride it. So this New Moon may be quite more intense than Taurus’s usual calm self. It may be internal or you might need to get out of its way!

New Moons have their own kind of intensity as the two Lights in the heavens conjoin. The dark opens doors to inner realms. There is a quietening so we hear more subtly. This is a late degree stand alone New Moon, stand alone meaning it isn’t connected with other planets. Things are unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Things that are ending are blessed and their maturity celebrated. There is always a child quality and super Feminine to New Moons, as Mama Moon, also of Children comes to be with Father Sun. What’s new is begun, honored with initiation. Another way of being with the New Moon is to let things wind down, just stop. Take time out, rest. Let go of old expectations, be thankful for what you have. Taurus can sit like the Buddha or do proactive Tai Chi. Both are totally in tune expressions.

North Node in Libra is now past the exact inconjunct with Neptune in Pisces. It is still conjunct the fixed star Vindemiatrix. See above

Zesty Mars, now in Gemini, is separating the opposition it made with Saturn in Sagittarius the 14th. If that connected with your chart, you will still be working out what it brought. Mars in Gemini is clever indeed, trying to dodge Saturn’s rules, boundaries, may be exhausted from the effort. Yet there are times a steadying force is a relief. Mars in Gemini can just spin, flail about with no direction. Though that kind of freedom can be exhilarating and lead you to amazing ideas, it can get nervous if frightened and forget the objective. Saturn in Sag helps us keep on course, the long term goal in mind. Mars in Gemini is an information gatherer par excellance! Saturn at times gets stuck in its righteous routine, needs a nudge to move along, and with new information comes to life again!

Venus, Taurus’s planet, currently in Cancer, trined Neptune in Pisces the day before! Fresh dreams, spiritual intention, connection with the Masters. You want more than just money. Beauty is etheric. Music and the arts may have been endowed or you resolved to take up dance again! Your home may be ready for a remodel, or smoothies be back on the menu. An altar at home could be inspiring. At this New Moon you could do a dedication circle. You may miss your Mother, love your children more, so proud. You think of Soulmates, give gratitude for your blessings. Anchor them at the New Moon. Give praise.

 Mercury is in STATION! That means it appears to be ‘standing still’ in the sky before turning RETROGRADE the NEXT DAY, MAY 18 at 6:50 PM Pacific. Mercury, in one of its own signs, Gemini, is sextile Jupiter, but doesn’t make the exact sextile because of the retrograde! There still is effect because they come within one degree of each other. In fact, they have been in working distance since May 9. There have been numerous ideas, abundant ideas. Learning has been worth it, teaching given, schools selected, plans made. Short journeys are fun. BUT. They will only go so far then abandoned. They may or may not be completed, likely not, or not in the way expected. Signing contracts won’t be enough to hold people to old premises. Don’t hold people to their promises. Probably had best intentions, but the winds are blowing a different direction now. Mercury won’t come back and make that sextile exact until July 3! Lot of water over the dam by then! The amps shall have been upped and what happens then will be amazingly better than what almost happened now. You will be glad after all!

 Pluto in YOD, double inconjunct, with Jupiter and Mercury! This is part of a complex planetary pattern that has been with us since February! Jupiter makes its final inconjunct with Pluto May 21, just 4 days after the New Moon! So this New Moon’s new beginnings are crucial to the conclusion of Jupiter with Pluto. Mercury in one of its own signs Gemini, adds it’s communication skills to relay what information it can, but retrogrades before all is complete. It’s as if that’s enough for now, let’s rethink, upgrade, don’t forget what we have done already….

  • Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Inconjuncts adjust, skew to the side for more awareness and perspective. They can be unsettling, but Jupiter is up for the game, loves a foray! It loves the periphery, looking afar and wide, acquiring an enhanced chest of knowledge. Life is bigger, richer. Pluto in Cap dislikes its routines being upset, but sees the advantages and is on board pretty quickly. See more!
  • Mercury Gemini inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn, won’t make the exact inconjunct with Pluto. There has been inquisitiveness, steady prolonged probing of Pluto’s secrets since the 14th due to Mercury being in Station. But Pluto knows how to hold its own with sniffy Mercury. Mercury could get close, might give old Pluto a shiver, but since Mercury retrogrades, the aspect doesn’t become exact, Pluto is saved! Mercury may try to sign the papers, but they are pulled back, put on hold, likely will be forgotten, even misplaced. Other matters take our attention, causing numerous further shiftings. An alchemy occurs and without realizing, what was, simply is no more. The exact aspect will happen down the road June 28.
 Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn does happen! Pluto in Capricorn can at times be a bit gruff, not impressed by fluff. Yet Venus in Cancer is such a Sweetie, a little melting happens, plus, she’s safely on the other side of things, and out of reach too. She’s intuitive and knows how to prod the old wise one, flirts and flatters a bit and might even bring cookies! So he listens in spite of himself, and she’s smarter than he anticipated. She knows cycles, has good business sense, wants to secure the investment, has a sense of long term. There’s history, maybe good breeding. Real estate, restauranting, children’s business and organizations will likely be successful and Pluto may decide to do some funding. Might not be an encouraging start, but stay with it, ask for what you want.

Oppositions do mean letting go, separating, as well. Could be a breakup, no more hypnotism, improper seduction, or being kept by paying your way. Standing back you may wonder what you saw there. Age may be a factor, disparity of goals, children may leave home, you may move. But remember, Mercury is retrograde tomorrow, things will change. You or they may return. If you get a new place or job during the Rx, know that it is likely temporary if a home, the job may change from what was intended.

 Chatty Mars in Gemini trine the North Node in Libra is unusually looking forward to socializing, even partnering a bit. He more often happily stands alone, simply responding as inspired, moment by moment. But now, there is the potential of another comrade in arms, one who is supportive and helps with those social graces. It could be one person or an inspiring couple living that way. The more he talks, the more thoughts are linked, the more he sees.

 Jupiter in Leo continues to close on the marvelous trine to Uranus in Aries June 22! Performance is like lightning! There is a spark in the air, engagement that warms the heart. Things are bigger and petty differences put in the live and let live category, eccentricities celebrated as gifts! Great numbers of Souls are making change, a wave of Light! See more above

Make it so.

Aries Lunar ECLIPSE FULL Pink Moon + Cardinal TSquare!
Aries New Moon ~ Nodes, Venus, Mutual Reception

Pisces to Aries 2015 Equinox New Moon Solar Eclipse - Hands Water Fire Steam

Equinox Total Solar ECLIPSE NEW MOON! Water to Fire!
Friday Mar 20 at 2:36 AM Pacific – 29 Pisces 27

Technically this is a Pisces NEW Moon, but it is happening on Spring Equinox, the day the Sun goes into Aries, from the last sign to the first! It is a time of new beginnings, from water to fire! As we say goodbye and gently release old obscurities, we invite and set our sights on what’s fresh, gleefully rampant, here and now! It’s officially SPRING!

Moon is the go between, lining up with, obscuring the Sun! Though not visible in the Americas, the symbolic Shadow exists. We can see what is hidden by brilliance, subtle forms revealed. They are our cues to look a little more deeply, not judge a book by its cover. Moon is transmitter of Sun’s magnificent Light! Aries, immediately upcoming, is above all, Initiation. It is when the days tip to more hours of Light and sight. It is the place of Sunrise every single day. In Yoga we do the Salutation to the Sun to invite our resonance with Divine Spirit, to be in accord with what’s greater than we are. Infused with purity and clarity, spontaneous action happens in a moment. We ARE the Light!

This is our first Eclipse of 2015 yet the Eclipse degree is the last degree of Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac! Fully mature, there is a transference of indelible Spirit energy, with permeable vapor exchange as the medium, to Aries that will carry the Flame, the Light! Energy will shift from immersion to emergence! Insights, compelling compassion will ignite undaunted action, championing for the underdog, an inspiring call for immediate change! Believing becomes doing.

29 Degrees Pisces is the degree of the Fixed Star Sheat, accidents, floods and shipwrecks. Get out your waders and don’t take silly chances! 29, The last degree, always has a sense of finality about it. What is done is done, time has run out. Celebrate your accomplishments! Plan ahead to have your intentions of this Lunar cycle completed to your satisfaction or as reasonably possible. You are always on Spirit time, and it’s all good. Even the smallest steps can be symbols of great personal accomplishment. Know your own Soul.

This New Moon Eclipse essentially stands alone at that 29 degree marker. It’s closest aspect is an out of sign trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, water to fire. As soon as Sun and Moon finish Pisces, 3:45 PM Pacific, they will then become in sign trine with Saturn, all three then being in fire signs and wanting action. Saturn is politely but staunchly guarding, making sure energy is being specifically and well applied to the long term plan. Aries is more instant, but Saturn wants seeable honorable accomplishment. Saturn is practical, realistically optimistic, not intending to be a damper, but indeed, quite the contrary, happy to see you and work together for great promise! It’s ordained!

Venus in Taurus, one of its own signs, is inconjunct, teasing and tempting old Saturn from the periphery. She soothes the rough edges, wants what she wants, helps stabilize a helpless Old Soul in a Sagittarian chaos of optimism. Saturn has at times felt out of his league, yet sees the benefits of Sag’s ideas and, given time, can make them happen. Venus speaks to the excellent values available, pretties things up. Saturn perseveres, not wasting time. Good team. Venus knows the need for daily comfort, and Saturn can use some admiration for his hard work. So much is expected of him. He’s a little more generous when he experiences appreciation, when he knows what a difference getting it makes.

The long time Uranus square Pluto had it’s final 7th of 7 aspects only 5 days prior, March 16! It is still so close, these outer planets moving very slowly, we are really still very much in it. This Eclipse brings inklings of times to come, opens doors to wellsprings of revelation, puts us in touch with pure source. Like driving a car, once we learn how, we continue. For some of us understanding, visions, come with a good swim, meditation or a deep sleep dream, maybe while chatting with a trusted confidant. Learn your process so it becomes a life tool for you. Earth, then Moon, then Sun are lined up perfectly in this Total Eclipse! Sun is sending his Light through this awesome conduit. Don’t miss it!

Five planet Stellium in Pisces! Mercury YOD  Mercury has just left Neptune, Pisces’ planet. Pisces is ultra sensitive to changes in the valence. Mercury is in an awareness aspect, inconjunct with Jupiter, who has recently been in the same kind of connection with Pluto. And communicator Mercury, more a listener in Pisces, will be in contact with Pluto 1:25 PM Pacific the 22nd. What goes around comes around. Purpose is essential. Mercury will pass that information directly to Chiron now at 18 Pisces. Mercury is now where Chiron was when Jupiter aspected it in the recent Jupiter YOD! Through that teachings can be shared, relationships healed, business infused with more caring.

Pass it on.

Almost Total Lunar ECLIPSE FULL Pink MOON + Cardinal TSquare
Saturday April 4 at 5:05 AM Pacific – 14 Libra 24

For you night sky lovers, the Full Moon Sky map WITH planets! (April below March)

Aries 2015 Lunar Eclipse Full Pink Moon Cherry Blossoms

Beauty be! Pink is a great color. Aries colors are white and red; Pink is their combination! White is for Purity, the first of all the signs, a clean slate. Red is for heart and courage and fast getaways! LOL! It’s a great primary color, the color of action. Libra is the other sign of an Aries Full Moon, this time a Lunar Eclipse! Libra enjoys pastels and flowers and isn’t usually a pushy soapbox type, but would like to find a middle road when possible. But. If necessary, they are great strategists, whether legal or war or chess, and will take point if need be, the darker side of that pastel kicking in. They can be foxy devils, clever as can be, argue both sides AND the middle! Makes your head spin and you never knew what hit you! If there is trouble, they can help, be your champion!

Visible at MOONSET in the Americas! It’s an early watch, the central eclipse at 5 AM Pacific. For your area see this site for Visible Eclipses! Lunar Eclipses have Earth between Moon and Sun, Earth’s shadow falling on Moon. Sun shoots the Light at Earth. Earth filters the energy into the form of a shadow, teleporting the collective human energy of all Souls to the Moon in Libra, sign of relationships. The Shadow energy has all our sorrows, all our bravery and love, our questions and wisdom. The Moon’s Light, being Sun’s reflector, in this case, will emerge giving this profound energy back to Father Sun to burn away the dross, to relight the candles of all our flames in greater Purity, along with a greater capacity to see and learn. Count on it.

This makes the Cardinal TSquare with Pluto all the more potent! We are still not done with that Uranus square Pluto. The Eclipse axis makes a right angle T Square. The Sun is with Uranus, and both Sun and Moon square Pluto at the T point! Cardinal signs want action, get things started!

  • Sun with Uranus and trine Jupiter! Remarkable! Sun in Aries loves/needs independence; Uranus is the planet of Freedom and Friendship! Could be a unique couple, an extraordinary group of freedom fighters traveling to the far reaches of the Planet! Change becomes a personal mission. Wild differences yet a single mindedness of purpose. The mission could be Holy or a lark, like getting away with stealing the plane, a little Robin Hooding! With the Libra Moon in the wings, past alliances may come into play, and there may be more disparity or camaraderie, or both, than expected. Can go either way. A little vacation maybe? Combine robust activity with gracious candlelight dinners.
  • Moon opposite Uranus, sextile Jupiter! Moon in Libra would prefer more gentile friends rather than volcanic upstarts like Sun/Uranus in Aries. Who knows what situation may need to be massaged back into a reasonable facsimile of sanity?! And yet, they understand each other to a degree. Moon loves their family group, and in Libra may be proud of their community standing. Uranus loves their extended family of dear friends that adore each others foibles. Put the right ones together at the right time and we can save the world! Throw in a leader like Jupiter in Leo and voila! We may be at a heartful seminar or a high altitude spa with sublime views that fill you to Infinity! Remember, this is an Eclipse; the gates are open!
    X
  • Sun square Pluto This one makes me tremble a bit. Not likely easy. Sun is in a challenging aspect with Pluto four times a year, but usually not also at an Eclipse. Aries is no coward, but Pluto is an oldtime deeper martial arts warrior anticipating Aries feints and jabs. Pluto can swallow you whole into its underworld, not an Aries element. Aries often goes it independently, where Pluto has its corporate bevy of lawyers, bodyguard, and doesn’t always fight fair. Yet this time, Aries does have the Eclipse to back it up, it’s Uranian friends who can employ out of the box tactics, and the clash may have a resounding Titan effect! It is possible there is no win, but a stand off, not even agreeing to disagree, but they go their own ways, forever, no point to waste time.
    X
    In a different example, Pluto in Capricorn may be glad for fresh youthful new Aries blood! Been needed. What was getting stuffy sees new hope and leadership! Yes, it’s different, but it can be tried out bit by bit and integrated safely. The laws may need updating, timing changes can be made, production processes modified. Departments of life and biz can be reshaped into diamonds! Aries is grateful someone is listening and putting them in charge, ha, as it should be. They are learning some tips from the experienced pros though. Not smooth all the time, but worth it. Next!
  • Moon square Pluto Another challenging aspect. Both are sensitive intuitive water planets, nurturers, but Moon is easily hurt, Pluto can be vengeful. And Libra and Capricorn don’t always see eye to eye. Moon in Libra is wanting entertainment at home. Pluto in Capricorn would prefer a private corporate crony golf date or business engagement. Libra is sweet and social; Capricorn can be tough as nails, all and only business. Hard to find time for the kids. However, Libra loves its finery, a lovely home, adornments, spa days, plays and symphonies and Pluto in Cap can give the funds. Libra is proud of their mate’s well earned excellent reputation. Pluto appreciates Moon Libra’s social connections, beauty and keen intelligence. Librans are fine companions and consultants. They quickly find excellent solutions that work for almost everyone. Total asset. Whether business or personal, give each other lots of praise and thanks.

Pluto at the T square point can act as a scanner for Sun and Moon, looking behind the scenes for unorthodox intrigue, romantic or financial, see when to watch your back. It can look for hurt that needs healing, body, mind or Soul. In Capricorn it senses breaks in continuity or rigidity that doesn’t serve. It can add a little grease for the creaky spot. It can let you know when an ending is nigh, when to let go in a good way, take advantage of a last chance. It makes for a stupendous infusion, flavoring the incoming informations with Plutonian power and insight! Pluto is maximum sharing, financial mergers, relationship integrity, life and death. Use your herbs, perfumes, flower essences to invite its potency in a good way!

As a sender, it can be your missionary and guardian in your new prospectus of life! It seeks alliances to establish a secure network. It has a deep charisma that over time proves substantial. Let it do it’s work and compatible connections will be made as it severs some, clearing your channels, finds others on your same wavelength that enhance your channels. It might seem a bit devious at first, the waiting might be nerve wracking. But face up to what’s real and keep moving. Times are shifting.

Mercury semisextile Neptune trine Jupiter! SemiSextiles have more potency than many expect! Mercury is logical, and in Aries is perception at the speed of Light! Neptune sees the whole frame, gives intuitive split second perspective. Pay good attention to what you think you see. First thoughts count. Mercury and Jupiter rule opposite signs Gemini and Sagittarius. It’s one thing to think, another to know the meaning, to have Faith beyond words, and a Plan! Mercury carries ideas and data, while Jupiter in Leo publishes, teaches, lets the world know what’s up! It might be the right time for you to sign a contract. You might make or get big news!

Mars, more gentle in Taurus, is persistently pestering, inconjunct Saturn. As Venus was inconjunct Saturn at the Solar Eclipse, Mars is this Lunar Eclipse. Venus set the stage, created a longing; Mars wants to get it, and is less willing to compromise in the process. Taurus common sense is evident, and, if wise, Saturn takes steps to get things rolling.

Use flowers in your Full Moon gathering ceremony this time! Think pink!

Happy Good Friday, Passover, and Easter to you who celebrate them.

Aries NEW Moon ~ Nodes, Venus, Mutual Reception
Saturday April 18 at 11:57 AM Pacific – 28 Aries 25

StarWatcher by legendary Jean "Moebius" Giraud, reminds me of a certain saucy innocence of astrological sign Aries!
StarWatcher by legendary Jean “Moebius” Giraud, French artist, cartoonist, and writer, who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées tradition.

This New Moon stands alone too, as did the Pisces Solar Eclipse! At 28 degrees, it doesn’t engage any other planets. This can be a purity, untainted effect or reception, unstoppable. It could be isolated and unintegrated. It may mean inspiration comes but is on hold. No planets but the Moon will be activating this point by conjunction for a long time! Most of the planets that would ‘catch up’ are slow moving outer planets. The first planet to activate this point by conjunction will be the Sun on April 17, 2016, one day off an exact year from the date of the New Moon!

Mercury conjunct Mars the Planet of Aries  Generally we think of Mercury/Mars combinations as a quick and done temper, but, in Taurus, Mercury is pondering while Mars is holding steady. If in agreement, Mercury is so pleased Mars makes its thoughts come true! If they do get into a snit, it might be memorable and they may dig in, stubborn in attachment to their point of view. Go easy and take hug breaks. Being grounded is essential. Touching what you are thinking about helps make it real, to ‘know’ it. No amount of pushing will speed this combo up. They like the pace they are moving at. Yet, Mercury is nimble and curious; Mars is still out in front even if leading from behind. Simple uncostly solutions become obvious. Values become tangible. People can take time out and just breathe. Ideas bubble to the surface in this relaxed environment. Bring the outdoors indoors; put flowers by the door….

Three planets and North Node at 8/9 degrees.

The North Node is at the point of a YOD (where two of the purple lines come to a point) with Mercury and Neptune, they being sextile (60 degrees). The North Node is considered by many to be a Karmic point, meaning it has deep meaning to the Soul’s process. The South Node, at the opposite point, is thought to represent our Past, for better or worse. What we did there (Past Lifetimes), we over did, under did, did really all too well. Often we have super skills there. The North is where we need to learn how to better do that sign to bring balance. We may feel a bit scared to go there since it is unstable ground as yet.

  • Mercury inconjuncts the North Node first from the symbolic Virgo side, then the symbolic Scorpio side each year. At the New Moon it is on the Scorpio side, in the sign Taurus, Scorpio’s opposite sign. Values are deeply noted and absorbed into the mind. They will have staying power. Mysteries will be revealed and healed as if a concentrated beam is upon them. There could be an abiding Peace within. Since the Nodes are on a 19 year cycle, there won’t be another Mercury inconjunct at this degree for 19 more years. This Peace with what IS, may calm, even becalm, the Libra North Node’s wishes for relationship as had been thought to be what should be. Time may seem to stand still for a bit. It may be realized that relationship is specific like snowflakes, each unique as the people who form them, forming a third energy, the Union of the bond only they two can make.
  • Neptune in Pisces inconjuncts from the Virgo side of the North Node. Again there is an unstated opposition since Pisces is Virgo’s opposite sign. Neptune has utmost compassion when it is healthy of Spirit. It would do anything it could to bring you that balance you are seeking, the good relationship with yourself, with a special mate if you wish. Healing may come from spiritual practice, nature’s remedies, changing the way you think.

This New Moon in Aries, and the Nodes Aries to Libra, show us that Independence has its merits, and so do healthy mutually supportive relationships. There are times it doesn’t make sense to go it alone. Sharing is more safe in dangerous places. Harsh winters are better weathered together. Partners see our blind spots. Two can do more than one when in alignment. And making love….

Venus trine the North Node in Libra, one of Venus’ signs! Venus in Gemini of Twins points to twosomes too. We thrive when appreciated, touched with affection. Advertising lets people know what we have of value to share. Siblings can bless us with their loving us, foibles and all. Grace flows.

Mercury Taurus semisextile mutual reception Venus Gemini  April 15 to 30, while Mercury is in Taurus, Mercury and Venus are in each others signs, these only a sign apart. Mini same degree aspects like this are especially potent when in mutual reception. Mercury is calmed in Taurus, more patient, stays with the topic, absorbs and grows to appreciate what it sees. Venus values communications. It makes what it talks about seem very valuable; you need it, want it, jewels in the crown! Venus wants to let people know about it! Cherishing words enfold us sweetly. In a good way, we can speak with Grace.

Venus square Neptune  Everything you see is not always exactly as it appears! Some things are downright unknowable. Venus goes a little crazy, trying from every angle to figure it out, but Neptune has no trouble putting up the veils and slithering off into oblivion. Or so it ‘appears!’ Who knows where the Dragon went?! Sleight of spiritual hand. Nothing will be known until the right time though we may be treated to glimpses…. Losses, longings unfulfilled, may feel more poignant for a few days. You or leaders may lose faith or be proven false or falsely accused. Let go for a few days; give it some time. The channel will change soon….

Venus sextile Jupiter This is the 4th aspect with Venus! Love and beauty are up! This aspect is loving and lucky, building to exact 11:41 AM Pacific on the 22nd! Since it is the last of the set, the outcome is likely positive! Yes! Venus in Gemini has a large chat penchant! Jupiter in Leo gives plenty to chat about! Jupiter magnanimously likes to share, teach, go places together and Venus in Gemini won’t be bored! Jupiter swoops her under his arm and loves his bright little companion. They have literally rich ideas, facts and proposals sparkling with promise! Venus has the right words; Jupiter has the confidence and the big ideas. Worth the adventure! Romance may happen along the way!

Jupiter turned Direct (forward) April 8 and is now back within 3 degrees of, approaching its final exact inconjunct with Pluto May 21. See all about that!

Have a zesty yet gentle good time!

Full Moon Aries Libra Eclipse 2014

NEW MOON
March 30 at 11:45 AM Pacific! It’s at 9 Aries 59

See  FULL Moon

Aries is an energetic sign, new moons usually not so much, but this one is likely to be spectacular, zig zag electric! It is right at the point of the 3 outer planet TSquare. It is the last New Moon before the upcoming April 20 to 23 Cardinal Grand Square! Get things battened down, put the lids on tight, or release what needs to be FREE! Time for Agni Yoga, the Breath of Fire! If you can’t stop it, get on it and ride it!

Aries rules the head! Get your cranial bones in order. Nerve centers are here; keep them free of debris thinking, available for clean decisions. Your face is a major communications device. Let it be in alignment with your thinking and your thinking be pure White Light. Hear the sounds of Spirit, the needs behind the words being spoken. Headaches, flare ups of sinusitis, tooth and gums may need attention signaling dietary changes needed. Have care about accidents or injuries to your head and face. Be mindful when and how you say things.

Moon, Sun, and Uranus are squaring Pluto!

  • Moon square Pluto – Moon is close kin with Pluto, both water planets. Moon nurtures, so Pluto tells secrets feeling safe, protected by the infinite Mother. If Mother gets stifling, snoopy, Pluto retreats. Learn and respect your proper ‘distance.’ Moon can be scared Pluto will be sneaky and undermine the home. Either one can be fearful or greedy about money. Both of them generally like to make it grow. Know where the monies are and keep all paperwork up to date.
  • Sun square Pluto – Sun and Pluto rule signs that challenge each other, Leo and Scorpio. Sun loves that bold light of day; Pluto is more underground, private. Sun likes to spend Pluto’s money, and often Pluto doesn’t mind. They enjoy making it, and supporting a sincere bright light. Each is possessive in their own way. Flirty Sun has that sparkle in their eye; Pluto can glower when thwarted. Pluto has natural charisma they can’t help; Sun is ferocious if you mess with their partner.
  • Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn – This aspect has been challenging (Aries) the whole world since 2010. Economic downfall has changed us all. Lost jobs, homes. Dramatic weather – Fukushima, ravenous fires, southern snow, western water shortages. The Internet (Uranus), the great educator, has revealed information, secrets (Pluto) leveled the playing field. Entire nations are changing. Shocking statistics are clearing our thinking to what’s real (Capricorn). Let’s get with it.

Moon Sun, and Uranus are squaring Jupiter!

  • Moon square Jupiter – More is better or not. Housework? Not. Travel? Yes! Moon nurtures, though in Aries, the trick is to nurture yourself. Independence is cherished. Yet still, who doesn’t appreciate a little comforting from time to time? And Jupiter expands, loves plentiful joyous abundance! Cancer can be a homebody, even timid, conservative as their Mothers, so Jupiter scares them a bit by asking them to frolic! They both love education! Cancer is a knowledge sponge forever, and Jupiter when not teaching, is writing the tome, or at least the travel blog, leading the tour!
  • Sun square Jupiter – Both fire planets, what one doesn’t do or dare, the other will! Racing, sports, gambling, horses, spending, could get way out of hand! But it sure was fun! Sun gets into its ego about opinions, and no planet out does Jupiter for opinions! And Jupiter has a Higher Source to validate it, been everywhere, so they know. Sun has merely made up its own mind. Both are generously spirited. Sun gives with all its heart and radiance. Jupiter is so lucky, and just knows there is more where that came from! These two are teachers too. Both speak with authority, and are dramatic storytellers.
  • Uranus square Jupiter – Jupiter is the faster moving planet, so brings its broad vision, warmth, easy going style, to planetary matters. Jupiter’s self righteous quality can stir the masses, to stand like Jupiter believes they can, for things they have been too frightened to stand for before. This can be frighteningly radical fanaticism to long needed change that has taken hundreds of years to come by. Jupiter makes a serious connection like this to Uranus every 3+ years, but not like this one, while Uranus and another outer planet are lined up as well. This is a time of PLANETARY INITIATION.

The only other immediately upcoming aspect in the New Moon chart is Mercury trining Saturn. Mercury carries the Word of the TimeLord Saturn. Saturn makes commitment, Soul agreement to the mission. Certain promises will be kept. Things that no longer serve will drop from priority as more important and timely needs become apparent. Loyalty prevails, all have a part.

All of this is in preparation for the April Cardinal Grand Square. The highlighted factor this time is the New Moon conjunct Uranus, the planet at the point of the three outer planet TSquare! That planet acts as seeker and sniffer, curiously extending from the two base planets, in this case the Jupiter opposition Pluto axis. It also acts as sender and emissary, transmitting the base knowledge beyond its usual grounds, pressing its imprint simply because it exists. Other times it is receiver, even against its will, yet, there it is, learning, shaken, excited, changed forevermore.

Uranus is the planet of freedom, evolution, genius, inventor. It is a quivery planet of Aquarius whose symbol is the symbol of electricity. Learning to wield this force, as giver and receiver, is a major tool in the modern citizen’s toolbox. Learning how to radically and instantly change directions keeps us out of the bullet’s path and into magical places and forces. We find other amazing Beings on unpredictable Paths, seemingly unguided, yet that electricity symbol also goes straight ahead! Uranus was also the god Ouranos, the god of the Heavens, the Stars, ALL the Suns! Even on a moonless night there is starlight. It’s not ever truly dark even when there be clouds….

FULL MOON, TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE – Cardinal Grand Square
April 15 at 0:42 AM Pacific – 25 Libra 16
That’s April 14th in Hawaii

YES! Our first eclipse of 2014’s four, is fully visible from almost all of North America!

Just six days before the Cardinal Grand Square April 20 to 23, this is the immediately preceding Lunar event. The Lunar Eclipse stands planetarily alone in this chart at 25 degrees, but it is within 3 degrees of the north/south node axis, 2 degrees of fixed star Spica, and one off from the Galactic Center at 26 degrees. It is independent of the Grand Square taking place at 13 degrees though the Grand Square is potently part of this chart.

These are the Nodes of the Moon, more intense, more pure perhaps, that they along the Eclipse axis. Sun is holding the fort at the South Node, Dragon’s Tail, considered a place of the Past, unfinished business when a planet is in the same sign. The Sun is the full strength Light of our sky, most able to withstand a relapse, a fall back. The Warrior has already proven himself. No longer needing to do battle, he is the King. Full Moons are always a requestioning our masculine/feminine balance as they go through each sign. Moon herself is at the North Node, Dragon’s Head. She is considered to rule our Past, past lives, maternal ancestors. She has skills that require no thought whatsoever. Many consider the North Node to be a place where we have some fear as we venture into uncharted territory. Who better than Moon, the Great Mother, to hold our hand as we meet the new levels, people of unknown ways and powers? She is intuitive, comforting, considerate of all, guide and guardian.

April 14, the day before our eclipse, Mercury goes through the outer planet Grand Square points! He squares Jupiter 11:32 AM Pacific, conjuncts the T point Uranus 4:15 PM, squares Pluto 9:12 PM. Be open to a wider range of information; allow a break down of communications so everyone can get away to think. Don’t expect a clean decision. Let time find its own way. This may be light bulb time, pure genius! The ideas, answers so radical they are hard to accept, or you have been waiting all your life for this! Some things you may need to guard, to copyright, patent. Others are simply too private. People might literally think you are crazy, don’t even comprehend. Have good sense about who you tell what; keep the cloaking device handy. Probably not the best time to make financial or partnership contracts, wills. Things are not as they seem, and they won’t be for awhile. There could be extreme points of view that may open your eyes. You had no idea.

It’s a dry run. If dispassionate logical curious Mercury can navigate it, investigates the nooks and crannies, we can get a more intimate feel for it, be a tad more prepared. We can get a dialogue going with ourself and others. We can negotiate more of what we need in advance, help put more puzzle pieces in place for a quicker fit as we progress the next nine days.

Mars is still Retrograde in Libra! You can see in the chart it is already making the Cardinal Grand Square. At 16 degrees it is only 3 degrees from 13, the degree of the exact Grand Square. As Mercury brings things to mind, considers pros and cons, Mars is willing to take action! It might be with a placard at the protest, advocating for education or rights. There may be a restlessness, wanting to free range and never return. Oh, wait, but there are some good friends and certain commitments that are good to do, maybe some kids that love us. Take a midnight walk or ride or two and talk with your ancestors. Be cautious about taking unnecessary risks just to prove a point that is already true. Check in with your accountant if you feel a lie or a cheat coming on, face it now. Ask your questions, get the proof. If your lover isn’t happy, what’s up? Share the responsibility. Yes, there are hurt frightened broken people stumbling around out there unable to do the right thing. You don’t have to be their victim. Protect yourself, forgive as you can – yourself and them. Don’t expect one talk to be it. It’s going to take some time and many talks. Go easy. People are usually more tender than they appear. Especially the tough looking ones. They think they have a lot to protect. Maybe they do.

Fixed Star Spica, the brightest star in constellation Virgo, considered the most benefic of all the fixed stars, is 2 degrees west of the Eclipsed Moon, at 23 Libra! Spica will be blue while the Moon is crimson. Per Astrotheme: ‘Spica, the Ear of the Wheat [Virgin’s Spike], gives a taste for the countryside, or for arts related to products of the earth. It endows with sculpture talents, as well as an inclination for agriculture and cooking. It brings success, riches, love for the arts and science, erudition, and precision.’ Kenneth Johnson says ‘Hindu tradition asserts that natives of Spica are elegant, charming, charismatic, sensual, seductive, creative, clever, and excellent conversationalists, though with a tendency to be self-centered or shallow.’ In horary astrology, old traditional astrology, ‘Spica is traditionally considered as an oasis of good fortune in the otherwise parched path (Via Combusta) from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio.’ From July 25th, 2012 until January 2014, Spica was in a series of 21 occultations [eclipses] by our Moon. Fully Spica infused, our Moon is traveling on, though still in the glow.

Libra is a masculine air sign ruled by feminine Venus. Spica is associated with Virgo the Virgin, feminine. The Moon is feminine. Mars is the masculine principle, these days Venus’s champion in Libra. Mars started in Libra Dec 7, 2013, continues through July 25, 2014, seven plus months, an unusually long time due to its retrograde. We are in a blending time, asserting the masculine more gracefully, lovingly, standing up for the feminine. Spica adds good fortune. Ballet. Divine dance. Blessed be!

The GALACTIC CENTER is at 26 Sagittarius. The Full Moon Sun is trine the GC. The Libra Moon sextiles it. The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Aries is undaunted! This is the volume they live for! And, Exchange is the word, because Mars, Aries’ planet in Libra, is ready to spring to connect, negotiate smoothly, move the goods and people along as they arrive on the Starships! Integration goes well. Sagittarius sees through the wormhole and slithers past the problems to a satisfying outcome.

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.
