Full Frost Moon!

Nov 22 the Sun leaps into Sagittarius at 1:02 AM Pacific, on ThanksGiving Day! The stage has been set. The Full Frost Moon is that evening at 9:39 PM Pacific, 0 Gemini/Sagittarius 52! It’s on Nov 23 at 12:39 AM EASTERN time!

Mercury Retrograde. T Square, Kite, Cardinal Grand Square ~ all linked! 

Sagittarius 2018 Full Travelers Moon
This one is called the Beaver or Frost Moon, but this year we might as well call it the Travelers’ Moon! It’s on ThanksGiving Day and whether you are going home to be with family or taking advantage of the holiday to take a trip, many are going to be on the road or in that plane! 

AND, this is the first lunar event, and I do mean first, it and Jupiter are at zero degrees, with Jupiter now in his own sign Sagittarius – the planet and sign of travelers! Apropos it is since the Full Moon spans Gemini (Moon) to Sun sign Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter, on the first day of 2018 Sagittarius!!! Arms open wide, Moon and Sun cross the dimensions. Gemini is fascinated by every single encounter with any possible living or inanimate thing at its fingertips! Sagittarius would walk 100 miles to see what is over that next hill and who might be there! Gemini thinks 100 miles a minute while Sagittarius is contemplating what it all means and is making plans to go another 100, knowing there is more! 

Mars sits at a T point to the Moon, Sun and Jupiter! His temperament is very different than theirs. They are chatty and heady compared with him in Pisces. He is a leader, but in Pisces can take complete silence. He can lead from behind or within, yet get him on a pulpit and the fire comes out! He can surprisingly lead the fray, an inspired compassionate leader in behalf of those who suffer. He is sensitive to what needs doing now to save the most later. His sensitivity avoids mistakes, gets right to the heart of things.

Sun and Jupiter are backed by a Grand Trine/Kite that finished Nov 19. Sun was in Scorpio then, received advice from Chiron in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer. Chiron gave tips on healing the Soul, the helpless and hopeless, other leaders involved with planetary healing. The Cancer North Node impressed Sun with the organic need for food and shelter, cleanliness and emotional support. Sun now in Sagittarius wants people to know, and put programs in place to get people on their feet, to be able to be contributing citizens.

Moon sits sextile midpoint between Chiron and Moon’s own North Node. And, she is one point of that T Square! She links them. First, as sextile Chiron and the Node, she too got the information Sun and Jupiter did! Where Sun & Jupiter in Sag are promoters, the Moon rules our shelter, women, children, the public at large. She knows the feelings of the times. She’s like a weather barometer that helps us make our moves at the times best for their reception. Sextiles of water and earth, she was in Taurus then, blend understanding and application. Taurus wants it to be anchored and long serving. Now in Gemini she’s spreading the word, getting thinking going. Next thing you know you are on the volunteer list!

There is a Cardinal Grand Square too! Cardinal signs get things going! Uranus is the Chief in Aries, leader, first responder! He thinks in terms of from the loner to all humanity! Getting one pivotal key person started can become an avalanche of success, worldwide achievement! Venus, in her own sign Libra, is sweeting her way along mending rifts, introducing strangers of great differences, blessing the day with beauty. She explains legalities and has teeth when she needs them. Don’t underestimate her. The Moon’s Nodes are the second axis – Capricorn south, Cancer North. We have been no nonsense business people before, building solidly a day at a time, supervising the troops, buying time, doing research and testing. Now we are adding in Cancerian caring, nurturing with quality food and comforting, offering personal support in community matters, the Sacred Feminine. Children are our treasures of the future.  

Uranus sits midpoint semisextile between Chiron and Moon! He links all three configurations, The Mars T Square, the Grand Trine and the Grand Cardinal Square. These are all action oriented combinations.

Venus is no longer retrograde, but Mercury is now since Nov 16. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde! It’s especially significant to this Full Moon since Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Communications are essential to spreading the good word. When Mercury/Gemini exchanges across the table to Sagittarius, he knows the information will go far and wide for free! Sagittarius loves telling stories, educating, sharing perspectives, opening minds to a vast array of information. Travel blogs to tomes. The retrograde function keeps reviewing, stirring the pot, incorporating insights that have come along.

Mercury squares Neptune. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Retrograde makes for a lot of quick mind changing. Neptune too can go either way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Saturn is making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see the many facets that need to be harmonized. The ‘shifting sands’ of these mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius can be like quicksand swallowing you up, or a mixing bowl bringing each thing that needs work to the surface so it can be dealt with. Mutable signs are known to be in motion, adaptable – sometimes accommodating, other times taking you with them! 

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

Astronomical note! Our Full Moon is occuring at the same time as what is called the Pleiadian Alignment that started Nov 15, finishing Nov 23, the day after ThanksGiving! Earth, Moon 0 Gemini, Sun and the Pleiades 0 Gemini are precisely in a row! They were known as the Weeping Sisters, in old horary astrology, something to weep about. Lord knows we in California have had just that with the deadly Camp Fire and the sad losses with the Woolsey Fire. Some organic astrologers equate the weeping with rain. We are hoping for a steady light rain that our scorched land can absorb. The Pleiades are also called the Seven Sacred Sisters, with various mythologies about them, feminine, intuitive. Please allow a special channel to flow between us all. Blessed be. 

Also, take some special time this Full Moon day to consider what to do and make plans to do it. Review the 2019 Annual Special Edition. Jot notes in your calendar. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Start as you can. Expect intelligent modifications to occur, a few natural mistakes. Mercury is retrograde, changing things on purpose, and it shouldn’t all go as planned, but, in time, even better! Evolution is the constant of change!

New Moon!

Thursday December 6 Mercury DIRECT 1:22 PM Pacific then the New Moon at 11:20 PM Pacific, 15 Sagittarius 07. It’s on December 7 in all the other US Time zones east of Pacific. 

Mercury Direct! Jupiter in own sign & New Moon in Sagittarius! Grand Square, Grand Trine, Mars/Neptune, 15°!

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

Photographer Dave Lane says a storm just passed before he captured this beautiful sight at Yellowstone National Park in 2015. He spent 4 months color-correcting the night time images to match them to the natural colors seen in the daytime at Yellowstone National Park. See the image large! See Dave’s photography tips!

This is the first New Moon during Jupiter in Sagittarius and the New Moon is IN Sagittarius! Hallelujah! It’s a double Sag chart plus Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. This is a 12 year restart for Jupiter! Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. And it’s the perfect support  for Jupiter! In his sign Sagittarius, Sun shines for him and Moon can feel the Sag messages so important to share! Make notes! Schedule to review and update them from time to time!

Mercury is no longer retrograde! Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio Dec 1 and Venus enters Scorpio Dec 2 at 9:02 AM Pacific. Mercury entered an intense Station (appearing to standstill) for 8 days in the last degrees of Scorpio! The Scorpio messages will be steeped, condensed, focused on, anchored in place. Decide what you want to keep as core guidance, let the rest go. Your foundation is set, move on with Venus’s blessing. Mercury turns direct, forward, Dec 6, the heart of the station, on the Sagittarius NEW MOON! The turn, very slow at first, has been made. After the next four days the findings will start being released, momentum will be gained. Mercury returns to Sagittarius Dec 12. He will be downloading the information to Jupiter Dec 12, leaving nothing out, until he conjuncts Jupiter Winter Solstice, Yule, Dec 21! Venus will be left behind on her own, still in Scorpio. See more: Venus/Mercury Retrograde Back to Back!

This chart is rather simple – you can see in the chart there are few aspects made – the color connector lines. What is exciting is that the point of the red triangle and the big blue triangle are linked!

There is the red, triangle that actually represents a Grand Square of Uranus, Venus and the Moon’s Nodes! It is quite odd in its combination. Uranus is in fire sign Aries retrograde. It will be squared by the Moon’s North Node in it’s own sign Cancer, also retrograde. Since the node moves faster, it will make the square while both of them are retrograde. Uranus in fiery Aries couldn’t be more his own man, complete loner to a leader of humanitarian efforts. Either way he is consumed, others have to come to him. Moon’s North Node in its own water sign Cancer is more likely to stay home unless it is a matter of taking care of the children. Venus is also in a water sign, Scorpio, still close but leaving them both behind. Water signs are usually trine, a harmonious aspect, but here they are square, somewhat at odds yet in compatible signs. It’s a similar setup for Venus ‘opposite’ Uranus. Oppositions are usually in opposite signs, which oddly have some compatibility. In this case they would be Aries/Libra – fire/air or Taurus/Scorpio – earth/water. But these are not. They are Fire/Water. Could be steamy, but Venus, of Libra has had enough of that upstart Aries, no finesse she thinks. Or she is impressed, and takes up his cause. In charismatic Scorpio she is looking for love and money, or wants to be around involvement with deep healing skills and centers for homeless, hospice, addictions. She’s blessed and not afraid of the dark side or being behind the scenes. Oh, the juicy secrets! She is not just a pretty face; she will do more than expected and more than we will ever know. Give her the reigns, yet check on her from time to time for your own peace of mind. 

There is the blue Grand Water Trine. The Moon’s North Node links the Grand Square with the Trine. Trines are considered a blessed configuration and the North Node too. North Node is our aspiration, balance with the South. In this trine, Mercury is exactly at the same degree and minute, giving deeper facts and wisdom from Scorpio, who has faced life and death. The North Node in Cancer wants to protect its own, so is quite grateful and now more able to secure resources and the safety of loved ones. Though the Node, always moving backwards through the signs, and Chiron are parting, Chiron in Pisces saw the weak points and showed the Node how to apply healing of spirit, as Scorpio showed the Node healing remedies. In turn, The node offered a nurturing place to stay, free of obsessions and addictions, instead a safe place with innocent babies and children that give us the reason to say clean and sober, to not stray from the organic reasons for being here together. Many times healers need to heal themselves. This trine is a great gift.

This trine helps calm the red lines. Uranus needs to be free, but how free? We are all a part of each other. We breathe the same air. Be free to be sweet. Pay more attention to the living beings around you doing the best they can. Be free to be able to receive love. Being touched by the Spirit of others makes a living difference. Venus in Scorpio can be enamored with her own seductive beauty that may be the source of her money. She may forget she too is a part of a web of dear humans that would love and admire her for more of what she is rather than what she has. They will love her when she is wrinkled and gray. She may be so wrapped up in giving healing she forgets herself. Open those pretty eyes, lift that chin, see and feel the love people have for you. Keep the balance.

The New Moon itself not in either pattern! In fact, it is virtually standing alone numerically. Both Moon and Sun recently squared Mars and Neptune, but, traveling faster, Moon and Sun are leaving them behind. What they will carry with them is the spice of Mars’s dreams while he has been close with Neptune. Mars has been inspired by Neptune’s amazing insights. Mars isn’t noted for being subtle, but he is in Neptune’s sign with Neptune. He is being steeped in Spirit. Aligned, he sees the vision too. Neptune is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mars is the planet of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac! It’s alpha and omega, the beginning and the end! What one starts the other must end. What one dreams the other must begin! Both are planets of Initiation, one through perceptions and visions, the other through the action taken in their behalf! Leadership is often born of what we see that needs saving.

Mars makes the exact conjunction Dec 7 at 6:12 AM Pacific, so essentially, the daytime operative hours are the same day as the New Moon! Two beginnings at once! It is also true that Neptune and Pisces may obscure your vision and accuracy. You or what’s out there may seemingly be ‘invisible.’ Please be careful if you feel tired, distressed, or even super ‘high.’ You may not be as invincible as you imagine, and poor judgment may be your undoing. It’s ok to slow down. We are all on God’s time. Illusion and confusion, intentional deception, could take you on a wrong lead for a time. If necessary, admit your mistake, get help if necessary, and get back on track. Some of these experiences will strengthen you. You won’t fall prey again, and you will guide others away from these traps. The other side of that same coin is a breakthrough! Your perception may be so heightened you can see like never before! You are guided to do the perfect right thing at the right moment. Blessed be. If you are in water sports, you could be the impassioned winner, the hero of the day!

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16° factors in your charts! The Libra New Moon Oct 8 started a 7 month series of New Moons at 15° of their signs. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15° midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. This one in Sagittarius will square the one in Pisces and trine the last one in Aries. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. The master Capricorn Solar Eclipse Jan 5, 2019, however, the first 2019 lunar event, will be midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs in the series! A lot will hinge on his decisions and influence the remaining three, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries.

Saturn is still making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit.

Pluto is still pondering, likely will be strongly for a couple more years, how he took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! He now, Kundalini and Phoenix style, is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! It will be an ongoing responsibility to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. 

This New Moon is strengthening our purpose. It’s about making meaningful and realistic plans about things that matter to our future. It’s the walk of a lifetime.

Scorpio 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Scorpio ~ Strength and Wisdom 

Scorpio Benka Pulko Motorcycle Woman Guinness

Contrary to perceptions, many of the most accomplished long-distance riders are women. Slovenian Benka Pulko’s story starts in a way many riders can relate to: One day in 1997, while laying in bed and pondering turning 30, she decided that life was short and she needed to get on a motorcycle and travel the world. The trouble was she didn’t own a motorcycle, and didn’t know how to ride. But those were just details for Benka.

She returned home after five and a half years, having ridden all seven continents (first woman motorcyclist to do so continuously), 75 countries and 111,856 miles on her BMW F650. Her marathon ride landed her in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest solo motorcycle journey by a female in both time and distance. In the process, she became the first woman motorcyclist to reach Antarctica.

While traveling through Dharamsala, India, Pulko was moved by the plight of the children of the Tibetan diaspora. As a result, she launched the humanitarian organization “Believe in Yourself and Kickstart the World”. The primary goal of the foundation is to promote, encourage, and support the education of children with limited opportunities in different parts of the world. The organization primarily focuses on providing scholarships to students of Tibetan Children’s Village, and ensuring female students have equal educational opportunity.

There’s her short story, mainly sourced by Bob Whitby, himself an adventure rider, and Wiki.

Scorpios are famous for dangerous adventures, solo, plenty of strength, survival against long odds, and caring deeply. They are terrific therapists of mind or body because many of them have been there themselves. They often handle huge sums of money, another dangerous passion, and do stunningly well, or go bankrupt. But do they let that stop them? Of course not. They keep at it until they figure out how to work it.

Relationships can be very bad to very good and lifelong. They can be mean, jealous and possessive. We hear that. But they can love you and keep you profoundly in their hearts and their very Soul, tending you to the end. Sexuality can be an eyes crossed orgasm to a sacred experience beyond any words. Maybe those are the same, LOL! There is no guessing whether you have been loved or not! Sometimes though, you wonder if it is love or money? It may take some time to figure that out, but it never hurts to get credit reports and a background check on potential partners or on the Scorp if it’s you being pursued by them!

Health can be at extremes. You can be broken in hospital, not expected to recover, but you do, and faster by far than predicted! Keep your interior body clean, detox your bowels. Some things just don’t go on forever. Relentless repetition can wear your body parts out and bite you back. Be smart about your sex, who you have it with, keep it clean.

When we say keep it clean, it means a lot more to a Scorpio! They want the whole planet to be clean – our air, our water – the oceans, the land – Earth herself. We want it to be clean for ourselves, our children. Kudos to you litterally for making our world a cleaner, safer place for all of us – protecting animals, trees, birds. And for recycling – reducing toxicity in all ways possible!

Sometimes you are beyond gentle and kind. Other times you have little patience with people who have no idea about the world at large. You know how much criticism can hurt, your poker face well in place, so you forgive at times without others ever knowing how lucky they were and how generous you are. But there’s only so much one can take. At times the storm clouds take over. You can speak out in a fraction of a moment and are so right everyone gets it and there is complete silence. Zero come back. You can be incognito, invisible, yet that in itself is a powerful presence. Ones who feel and see will know you are there.

Charisma is one of those invisible powers. People may follow you for no apparent reason. You may be blessed with a sincere and meaningful following. Charisma can be used in drawing people to be healed until they can do it for themselves. For many it is a connection they have never felt before. It pulls them further into life to learn about love. Know your power and use it well. When they discover it is a part of you for all people, they may be sad to have to wean themselves. It is a vulnerable time. You need to disengage cleanly. When you see it coming, introduce them to more people they can admire and be inspired by.

Scorpio journalists are to be held in deep gratitude. They go to wars, disasters, into criminal organizations, illegal medical situations, investigate toxic waste. They don’t always make it back. They intend to bear witness so we can all make our world a better place. Their words and images tell a real story. It can be pain and suffering, or successes that make us smile and feel safe. We retell those stories from our own hearts and share as if we had been there. One by one, little by little we change. We try to anchor the good and keep adding more.


Sometimes there is strength before wisdom, but either way, it’s a winner! Please always be safe and heal well when you need to!

Scorpio 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Libra Astrology Highlights 2018!

“The giant sunsets are a whole other world on the (Bolivian) salt flats. At sunset, with the reflection, you can see two suns moving fast at each other until vanishing into the horizon.” By photographer Eric Paré

Scorpio 2018 Timeline!

October

23  Happy Scorpio!
24  Full Hunter’s Moon!
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

November
1  Jupiter Trine Chiron only once
6  Uranus Sign Change back to Aries
Scorpio New Moon, Jupiter inconjunct Uranus
8  Jupiter into his own sign Sagittarius!


Scorpio’s year starts with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto crossing the Golden Ecliptic
 at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! This is particularly important to Scorpios since Pluto is their planet!!! There is an intense 10 day period Oct 30 to Nov 8 with multiple aspects that will take several years to assimilate! See more! These events occur during Venus Retrograde that is followed back to back with Mercury Retrograde Nov 16! See Venus/Mercury Rx! We will need those 2019 aspects with Neptune to understand and come to working solutions.

Scorpio’s year finishes with the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury, Mercury crosses the face of the Sun for hours! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032. Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit are linked by degrees – sextile, the Sun, and both happen in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign!

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are making five sign changes in Scorpio’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Sep 25 Chiron retrogrades back into Pisces, Nov 6, Uranus back into Aries. Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron enters Aries permanently, Mar 6, Uranus into Taurus permanently.

Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again! Now in Pisces, Chiron will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and restored.

With the multiple outer planet sign changes and the retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

By November 2019, all SIX of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s Box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser. If he approves, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Scorpio’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

See the 2018 Special Edition Annual Newsletter! See the Aspects, Patterns, Sign Changes, Retrogrades, Stelliums, Lunar Dates as we finish the year!


Outer Planet Transits with Scorpio 2018 – November 2019!

Scorpio Women White Water River Rafting

Scorpio happiness! Immersed, extreme, testing your wits! Reid Williams thinks women are better paddlers than men!

Scorpios, your planet Pluto is still in Capricorn, but this year it makes a rare 248 years aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic right during Scorpio Oct 20, 2018! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris will be burned away, be having a fiery bath of Light, cleared to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers will increase exponentially! He will give that very energy to Sun and the Light itself will be more clear and radiant! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio, will be cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. Neither Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this will test them.

Pluto reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018, now moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival.  Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto has been sextile its own sign Scorpio since 2008, finishing Jan 2024. Since they are related, a lot of business has been efficiently done. Takes one to know one, they are comrades. They have common purpose forming relationships, both personal and business. They know how to help each other health wise. Each has made potent discoveries, sometimes bringing abrupt life changes. They can be taken down, but that Phoenix usually rises again, stronger than ever, with attendant revelations!

Neptune is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Scorpio can be smooth as silk. Pisces flows everywhere it can, both in water and Spirit! It reads our Soul and cues Scorpio to those most important factors about us, the ones that show up when the chips are down, or that may be appealed to when Scorpio needs help. Pisces, sometimes in deep pains of addictions, knows when to grant mercy and can call the Scorpio hounds back from going too far. Neptune is tuned to Scorpio himself, sensing what needs clearing, how we may successfully become the Phoenix that rises above pain and harmful obsessions to be the dedicated hero!

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

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

Aries and Scorpio are both warriors! Aries is at the front line, saving people right and left! He saves their bodies, but brings them to Scorpio to heal their PTSD. Scorpio makes some new friends too. Aries is independent, so much so he doesn’t always investigate before investing, but has the zest to keep up anyway! Scorpio is inspired to take a few more chances. When he can, Scorpio sits Aries down and explains some of the facts of monetary life and helps Aries steady up his finances so life will be better as he ages.

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

Taurus is an Earth sign; Scorpio is water. Earth clogs up the drains or keeps the water where you want it. With Uranus, the planet of electricity, involved, some hydro power is likely. Uranus is Taurus is just crazy enough to spark the interest of Scorpio. Taurus can go slow enough not to startle sleeping Scorpio to some magnificent extreme reaction we had hoped not to awaken. Very few can tiptoe by a sleeping Scorpio volcano… Scorpio may be very attracted, but Uranian Taurus is born to be free. He shares extraordinarily valuable ideas that make Scorpio wish Uranus would stay here always, but part of how Uranus keeps the electricity flowing is by quickly changing locations and mental parameters, engaging and energized by each new energy field encountered! And, after a time, Scorpio could tire of this constant change, unpredictability. Please, come back for a visit!

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, and after taking a foray into Aries, is now back in Pisces. It will cover 27 Pisces to 5 AriesSee more It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees.

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

Chiron the Healer/Shaman is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Scorpio loves that depth of intensity, delving into the meaning of things, solving mysteries, putting things to right. Medical research and work suits them. Coming to terms with sexuality, poverty and wealth, addictions, the death processes, are challenges they have the capacity to undertake.

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself mythologically carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Scorpio watches, waits, wonders whether to join the fray! Aries doesn’t give it a thought, makes a leap for it, and generally their intuitive response is right on. Scorpio is not afraid of danger, but they certainly pick their battles. However, they are more likely to be excited by how Aries seems foolhardy, but also how surprise and quickness are on their side. Scorpio may join in before anyone even realizes, doubling the surprise factor! Aries can be quick to love and leave, whereas Scorpio often mates for life. Scorpio may give it a go, but Aries wasn’t born to conform, so Scorpio will need to be able to grant a wide latitude. Scorpio can be jealous, even possessive, and that will never work with an Aries unless our Aries has some Scorpio in their own chart too and they happily possess each other! Bottom line is you can’t keep what can’t be owned!

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with your own Saturn 4 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through November 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return, 58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. These days I find myself knowing many 90 year olds! A lot of us are now experiencing that third Saturn Return about age 87! Some are alone, many friends, even family, gone. Others are surrounded by friends and family, the Matriarch/Patriarch! Some struggle with health, financial matters. All are consulted for advice – what did they do that worked?! They share their wisdom and give comfort. Many are standing strong. They know what they like, and they are still learning, taking and teaching classes, running businesses! They have a mixture of gruff and grace that catches your attention, often making you feel tickled and smile with admiration!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn gets along just fine with Scorpio. Scorpio admires Saturn’s competence. Saturn may point out Scorpio’s obsessive behavior and Scorpio doesn’t mind at all, because Saturn offers counter solutions that really work. Scorpio finds he is more truly himself rather than the prisoner of his own obsession. His performance improves tremendously. Saturn shows Scorpio how to shift his attention to what he deeply wants, that is a bigger draw than what he was mindlessly doing before. It’s practically a miracle! Saturn shows him how to choose a productive long lasting personal partnership that includes financial success accompanied by a Soul connection that means everything. Don’t settle for anything less. That bond is a special gift of life. Scorpio sees the kinks in Saturn’ boxes, loosens up a few of Saturn’s screws, and off they go to the pub together, arms across each other’s shoulders, laughing uproariously with delight!

JUPITER moves from 26 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

Lucky Jupiter has been in your sign Scorpio this last year, goes into Sagittarius Nov 8! In these last few days it wants you to finish up what healing you can do, take complete notes on how it is done. It wants to heal your relationships and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential while you do it! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may have taken Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you weren’t healthy, are still not up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius is no longer in the self-protective Scorpion on-the-ground place, but is the mighty horse striding along, and the cheerful funny lucky storytelling traveler. Everything is fine as long as he doesn’t go around making up stories about Scorpio! Scorpio carries a deeper note, prefers the journey might be more as an observer, the shadow behind the scenes. But when Jupiter tells the stories, perhaps as a parable, and it really is funny, Scorpio realizes he is human too, and has less to protect than he thought. He sees Jupiter’s luck, how he lands on his feet so much and so easily, Scorp thinks he might be able to do that too. Cosmically, Scorpio is a Sagittarius in training, Sag being the sign that follows Scorp! On a journey, seasoned traveler Jupiter allays Scorpio’s financial concerns. Jupiter jumps right in and chats up the locals. Scorpio can relax his martial arts posture, though it’s nice to know he’s got your back just in case. Sometimes Jupiter is a little quick with his opinions. Could be a bit dicey at times, and he learns more about consequences – not just for himself but others too. Be a little more thoughtful and respectful. We don’t always realize the effect we have. If he messes with Scorpio too much he will learn personally. Jupiter is more likely to go into a new place with an open mind. Scorpio can have his mask on and people may not trust him nor he they. He often loves a little danger, but Jupiter will show him the courage of learning, being connected with a smile.

Jupiter either comes streaking through our lives like a comet, is the owner of the bed and breakfast, or the university prof! Jupiter certainly has a multitude of ideas about styles of living, the meaning of life, and from his broad experience, you never know what he will say next! We are curious, thinking of taking on an adventure of our own. You too might become a travel agent, a tour guide, paying your way by being the Guide, publishing travel tip books, writing an informative blog readers pay to subscribe to! Sagittarius is noted for longevity and Scorpio is inspired to learn more about that!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on your life.

Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde 2018 Face Cup Fingers Flowers

The Mercury Mind Combined with Venus Art! What a Cup of Tea!

About retrogrades! 

Whether ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle.

Venus, Libra’s own planet is first! Her complete cycle spans Sep 2 to Dec 17! Mercury follows, his complete cycle Oct 28 to Dec 24, Christmas Eve. Venus goes direct, forward Nov 16 as Mercury starts his retrograde the very same day in Pacific time! Venus starts in her own sign Libra, goes forward into Scorpio, turns Rx in Scorpio. She is predominantly in Scorpio. Mercury starts in Scorpio, goes forward into Sagittarius, retrogrades in Sagittarius, predominantly in Sag! Not only are these Rxs linked back to back, but both planets spend time in Scorpio, making it the pivotal sign between them.

Three signs! Venus establishes awareness of the value of Libra and Scorpio, both relationship signs. She whispers sweet things to Mercury the Messenger! He can’t resist spreading the word, thinks and thinks about what she said as he goes along. Each time he tells the story it is a little bit different, maybe a bit bigger too, LOL! He uses Scorpio wisdom to jump start Sagittarius. Sag wants the meaning of things, especially those things! He makes plans for it to come true! Where Scorpio, knowing the darker side, doesn’t alway trust, Sagittarius trusts Scorpio to remove the greatest encumbrances. Sag has faith all will become well no matter what. He is an excellent Pathfinder and the best ways will be found! He’s good at finding them.

Venus Retrograde Oct 5, Direct Nov 16 Pacific!

Venus Retrogrades from 10 Scorpio 50 back to 25 Libra Oct 5 to Nov 16. The whole three part cycle starts Sep 3, finishes Dec 17. Venus is in her own sign Libra loving beauty, gracing relationships, making introductions, dancing, appraising and balancing values, organizing gatherings. Venus in Scorpio wants more. More return on investment, a deeper relationship, beauty is not required. She depends on her inborn charisma to get her through the dark scary places and dares to go there. Do not underestimate her. Her love is a healing all its own.

Venus retrograde hostesses the Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and the remarkable 10 DAY sequence that event starts! She is retrograde at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side Nov 8 as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

Being retrograde, Venus goes back to connect any people conduits still needing to be made. The connections are necessary for Mercury Retrograde to go back to share all the exciting information that has been scooped and gathered – especially about the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Libra and Scorpio both are people oriented signs. Libra is social, often holds gatherings in behalf of a cause. It has charm, grace, and understands local and international etiquette. Libra is often involved with anthropology, museums, world arts, plays and symphonies. Scorpio knows your secrets and hopes to make $ with you, love with you, or heal you from the inside out! They are masterful at transformation, have remarkable recovery powers! Mercury will be in Scorpio twice while Venus is, so its a direct transference, specifically when Mercury conjuncts Venus Oct 15! You might connect with a kiss!

Venus makes no aspects during her retrograde cycle. Mercury makes only two aspects during both their entire cycles and both those aspects are to VENUS! Sep 3 Mercury sextiles Venus during the first of the three phases at 25 Leo/Libra 33. They conjunct Oct 15! These back to back retrogrades are indeed linked!

Classic Venus Rx carefuls are don’t expect new relationships to be forever. Be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Better to wait on beautification projects ie remodels, painting your home that color, purchasing a home, new wardrobes, related investments, cosmetic surgery, hair color changes. MAKE BACKUPS OF ALL YOUR DESIGN WORK AS YOU GO ALONG during Venus Rx, but especially during Mercury Rx!

Remember, where our attention goes, our energy flows! We don’t mind when good things come back to us – especially in Venus Rx! A retrograde can find the favorite sweater we misplaced, an old sweetheart may return (be cautious), a beautiful design may continue to be revised, to get better and better! Breaking up is hard to do in Venus Rx. It’s just not over yet and may be fully saved though least expected. Focus on the positives.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 16, Direct Dec 6 Pacific!

Venus asks ‘Who Loves you Baby?’ Mercury says ‘What?!’ It’s down to love and money and whether you sign the papers or not! Venus loves the sensuousness of relationships – body beautiful, exquisite art, intricate sequences and blends of symphony sounds, intricate cultural anthology, and right on down to the fine local handshake with someone you just meet! Venus connects us person to person. Mercury connects your minds, a thought to a thought. It’s not what you say but how you say it. Listening is just as important as speaking, hearing heart to heart. The Venus people connections, and connections with the greater world around us, will expand Mercury’s capacity, his scope of mindfulness, give him a more sophisticated outlook, a greater capacity of attention! Limitless, really.

This last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 retrogrades from 13 Sagittarius 29 back to 27 Scorpio 16 Nov 16 to Dec 6. The three part cycle starts Oct 28, finishes Dec 24, Christmas Eve! Mercury starts in Scorpio, attending to what ails us and the power within us! Secret alliances may be made, but eventually, Mercury will spill the beans. Be ready to make the most of that. Have your explanation script ready and use the revelation to our betterment. Keep your documents handy and facts at your fingertips. If you have been wanting to talk with someone for a long time, this may be your opening. Rxs are good for reviews, but not final resolutions. Share, but don’t sign. In Scorpio don’t be surprised if you are masterfully seduced, but it would truly be better to wait until you know this person well or until you see more of how the situation comes out after Dec 6. If you invest, make it so you can back out instantaneously, or wait. An old health matter may come up again and this a perfect time to take care of it, get to the root. Or, research it, then, with your astrologer, set a surgery date a week or so after Dec 6. Double check security systems before, during and after Mercury Rx in Scorpio.

In Sagittarius there are trip itinerary mix-ups, the plans change, the school, courses and instructors don’t pan out. There can be weight gain as we snack mindlessly while we nervously try to make a decision. Health matters involve something that is too much, too big, hips/thighs. We can pull a muscle just having a great time or racing. Not fair. Gambling can be a too much. Horses, big dogs, be careful. Photography blunders of panoramic vistas may appear to be a mistake, but later prove to be valuable for something you didn’t realize was in the image! Keep them all! Opportunities may come back in an unexpected way. Wait to see more, yes, until after Dec 6.

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

Sagittarius has such optimism! It may be just too good to be true, or Sag may be just so lucky as to succeed against the odds! We may find that lost winning lotto ticket! That would be ok! You may feel to revive your blog. Things have changed and you’ve got great new stuff to say. People can use that info! Resubmit for publishing. Play with the idea of going somewhere you have always wanted to go. Bet there’s a way you can do it! Good luck!

Mercury, not Rx yet, is at 29 Scorpio when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! But 9:39 PM Pacific that evening it goes into Sagittarius! Mercury’s main job this time, and during the following Rx, is much more important than the usual mixing up your travel plans! It follows not only Venus Rx, but the major Pluto/Ecliptic event TEN day sequence! Some of those whose charts are connected will be reeling! Mercury is ordained to be the Messenger of what that all means, from deep and dark to the brilliant light of the Sun! It’s a perfect job for Mercury in Sagittarius! Sag automatically sees the best of things, the perspective of past to future, collects the data, makes the plans, and with faith filling its heart, teaches the Way! That is especially important because the last event of the 10 day sequence is Jupiter going into its own sign, Sagittarius!

This Venus Retrograde is important not just for being retrograde, but for hosting the intense 10 day Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic sequence Oct 30 to Nov 8 (in RED below)! She makes double sure significant changes are made. Since their cycle aspects overlap, here is the entire timetable:

Sep
Venus, Libra’s planet, starts her Retrograde cycle in Libra!
3  Mercury sextile Venus
9  Venus Scorpio
9  Virgo New Moon

Oct
Venus Retrograde
8  Libra New Moon
9  Mercury Scorpio
15 Mercury conjunct Venus Rx at 8 Scorpio 50
23 Happy Sun in Scorpio!
28 Mercury starts Retrograde Cycle
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic
30 Mercury Sagittarius
31 Halloween
31 Venus Rx back into own sign Libra

Nov
1 Jupiter trine Chiron
6 Uranus retrograde back into Aries
Scorpio New Moon
7 Jupiter inconjunct Uranus
8 Jupiter into his own sign Sagittarius! 

16  Venus Direct (forward), Mercury Retrograde

Dec 
1  Mercury Rx back into Scorpio
2  Venus Scorpio
Mercury Direct (forward)
6  Sagittarius New Moon
12  Mercury Sagittarius
17  Venus finishes Retrograde Cycle
24
  Mercury finishes Retrograde Cycle

You may be a bit exhausted after this entire 4 months long sequence. Sometimes it takes even longer as what was brought up needs time to be integrated into your now different way of living! Will life ever be smooth again? Of course! Then you will wish for some changes and you know they will come!

Be sweet and keep telling our story! It’s in your hands.

Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!

Pluto Conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at His South Node!

Pluto Ecliptic South Node Line of Nodes Diagram Capricorn

The Line of Nodes is the intersection between the orbital plane of Pluto (purple) and that of Earth (white). Because Pluto’s orbit is significantly inclined relative to the ecliptic plane, node crossings are rare, and because Pluto’s orbit is eccentric, they occur in 87 and 161 year intervals. Credit: Anne Verbiscer

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic, north to south, at South Node, at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! That’s a stunner 248 year event few ever experience! Last time it crossed south to north September 4, 1930 – NASA says it was 1931. 1930 was when Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto! And it was in the time of the US Great Depression. Pluto is known for extremes and financial events. It will take 161 years to reach its North Node, 2179.

The last time it crossed north to south, like it is now, was July 2, 1770, the day after Comet Lexell passed the closest to Earth than any other comet in recorded history!

The Line of Nodes is the intersection of the plane of the Earth’s orbit and a planet’s orbit. If the planet is near one of these intersection points at the time of opposition, they were mid 2016, it is in near-perfect alignment with the Earth and Sun.

Astronomer Anne Verbiscer asks did the fact that objects tend to be brighter, sometimes exceptionally so when they are near opposition, also increase Tombaugh’s chances of making his famous discovery? She explains that Pluto was definitely brighter at that time due to the “opposition effect.” Sometimes it is a dramatic increase in reflected sunlight that occurs when a planet, moon, asteroid or comet is at opposition.

Opposition is every year when planets orbiting the sun beyond Earth’s orbit reach what astronomers call “opposition,” when they appear in the sky at the position opposite that of the sun. See more!

Ecliptic Sun's Path Ring of FireA Blip on the Ring of Fire!

Per Wiki ‘The ecliptic is the circular path on the celestial sphere that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year.’ The term also refers to the plane of this path, which is coplanar with Earth’s orbit around the Sun. That’s why Pluto crossing the Ecliptic is so strongly linked with Earth! They are all lined up! Since Earth tilts, they would be even more lined up if this happened at one of the Equinoxes!

Oct 30, tiny yet powerful Pluto will be at 18 Capricorn 58, his South Node, descending! In this context, Pluto is entering his own Underworld for the next 161 years. This downunderness is a natural place for Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. It thrives in deep environs, places that could be dangerous, that challenge you to the core. They want to clean up messes, know what makes things tick, what to do at the thresholds of life and death. They carry the midwife’s basket and comfortably work at Hospice. They are pros at Wall Street and on the Market. They see the struggles, failures and successes and try their hand at it all too. Stealth and Wealth.

The Ecliptic doesn’t move; Pluto is the one that is moving, relative to it. Pluto is going to be immersed in the Trail of Light. From flaws to profound keen Healer, all is revealed. Pluto will stand in the Path of the Heart of Light, bathing in the greatest battery, Light charger, possible. What doesn’t work – poor health, a suffering or mean attitude, useless compulsions – may be burned away, offered up and released to the Solar winds. What’s left, what does work may stand clearly and be enhanced like a pure energy.

Relationships may be profoundly adjusted. More love, more sharing, more standing together for their life’s causes. They may keep a low profile, privacy a strong tool, but you will sense their combined formidable power. If it is time to dissolve, may it be done with dignity and respect.

If any planet can do it, Pluto can! The ability to transform, Dark to Light, is his profound business. The Phoenix rises from its own ashes. You may hardly recognize him when you see him next. Pluto is in Capricorn now. Pluto is destruction, clearing obstacles, detoxing, cleansing, resurrection! Capricorn is the builder, renovation. Together they restore and enhance with the best materials and devices current times have to offer! Sustainably. Capricorn is the Father, dedicated, responsible, condensing power, compounding the interest! Saturn is in Capricorn, his own sign, too, so these will be truly productive times for those who put in the effort. Intuition will be strong, work will be focused right at the critical junctures.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest lunar event by degree of 2018 preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

Capricorn has intentions and Pluto can be obsessed, together unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

Mars and Mercury are both Retrograde in our Solar Eclipse chart! They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway, or if you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! LightKeepers are needed.

Oct 30 the SUN will be at 7 Scorpio 30 along the Ecliptic. Scorpio is Pluto’s Sign! The Sun is ON! It’s a merger of Dark and Light, both valuable in their own way. Through this kindred energy, Pluto, on the Sun’s circle, will have more courage and ability to be resonant because Light isn’t his natural element. Take some time that day to feel the effects of Light on Light, Light on Dark.

Will Pluto leave its scent as it crosses through this energy plane/portal? It must! Will we feel it when the Sun conjuncts the Oct 30 Capricorn point Jan 9, 2019, and when Sun next makes his annual conjunction with Pluto two days later Jan 11, 2019 at 20 Capricorn 56? And what about Oct 30, 2019?! Let’s sit with it and see what we get! Pluto moves only 3 degrees a year, slowly. This degree is still very close. Take some time, these important dates, to feel what Pluto, Sun, and Scorpio are channeling to us. Light itself may need cleansing, recharging. The Dark may need purifying so it may function cleanly to be a protective shield or be a safe place to have deep thought and alternate perception. Dawn and Dusk become more special, times of blending their forces.

There are longer term aspect events as well! If you are strongly affected by the Pluto/Ecliptic, note these dates on your calendar!

  • First is the uncommon Nov 11 2019 Transit of Mercury at 18 Scorpio 56! It is six minutes (of space) conjunct Jupiter’s sextile Pluto position Sep 12, 2018 at 18 SC 50, the closest aspect preceding Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Transit is only two minutes of exact sextile to the Pluto/Ecliptic point at 18 Cap 58! See more below!
  • As Saturn travels its own sign Capricorn, along with Pluto, it makes three important connections. June 18, 2019, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 43. Dec 10, 2019 it conjuncts the 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic position! January 12, 2020 it conjuncts PLUTO at 22 Capricorn 46, on average a 34 year event!
  • Last, Jupiter squares Neptune June 16 2019, two days before Saturn sextiles it from 18 Capricorn 43. Jupiter exactly conjuncts the Pluto/Ecliptic position in Capricorn on Feb 26, 2020! It then moves on to conjunct Pluto three times during 2020. In addition, Oct 12, 2020, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 45!

This #18 now holds fascination! Number One is Initiation, action, leadership, being first! 8 is the Infinity number. Comprised of two circles touching, it is thought of as a ‘figure’ 8. For some of us it is the ultimate dynamic of the Möbius loop. It irrevocably bonds our souls equally yet we are discreetly different. We are in a fusion of action, each compellingly and continuously involving the other with every breath! Laying on its side, perhaps 8 is the power of two as one, we ‘know’ each other intimately forever, maybe good and evil. Vertically, it can symbolize the always day and night sequence, or as above, so below. One and eight add to Nine, in numerology, the completion. By definition nine has the qualities of all the numbers, represents spirituality, mystical knowledge, even thought of as a sacred number… The symbolic calling here is profound. Eighteen might be thought of as the Initiation of Union.

Yes, Oct 30 is months away (this written Feb 16, 2018), but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

Many astrologers think this is a several years long event. I agree. You don’t wake up that day and say, wow, I can feel Pluto at the Ecliptic and its over! It’s a process, a sense of it, a learning how to transform Dark to Light, merge Dark and Light work with those mediums. Not a 5 minute affair. You need to practice in all kinds of circumstances, become seasoned. It’s not just for yourself but to be capable to be that healer/teacher for others as well.

The Fixed Star Deneb is at 19 Capricorn 48 in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan! It is less than 1 degree of Pluto’s South Node. Swans are the sweeties! Grace, beauty. The Swan symbolizes to make sound, to take flight! Deneb is one of the three stars of the huge Summer Triangle in the sky! Deneb links with Lyra in Lyre the Harp, beautiful etheric music, and Altair in another bird constellation, Aquila, the fierce bird of prey, the Eagle! Raise your vision. Let go of old weight, spiritual and otherwise, that no longer serves; fly your good powers clean and well. Use your keen perception to heal and serve right on target. Make beauty, beautiful sound, take flight, rise above!

Here is another look at the immediate cosmic schedule! Pluto at the Ecliptic starts a TEN day sequence of aspects to Jupiter changing into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event!

Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! A look into the Underworld, our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

To add a little spice to the trail, Venus Retrograde hostesses this intense 10 day sequence! She is retrograde until Nov 16, the same day Mercury retrogrades! What she reverses and modifies, Mercury will be thinking and communicating about. We will collectively be revising many of our values, our sense of beauty, what we feel good about in ourselves, who we want to spend our precious time with and why. Our wants will be changing and the ways we go about getting our needs met will change.

Venus is at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Scorpio Nov 7 New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

It is while within that Taurus preview that Uranus hosts Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! In Taurus, the most stable of the Earth signs, the Pluto/Ecliptic transmissions are grounded and stabilized. Venus Rx, on the spot, is doing her best to shift what she can while the excitement is happening. It’s her best chance. Taurus is one of her signs, so they have a certain understanding. He recognizes her excellent assessments, and gives them priority.

You see how intricate and several-years extensive this complex of events is! It will change us as the days and years go by. Some will be so apparent; some will be so subtle.

Pluto will bring more Light than ever thought possible! Light on Light, Light in the Dark! Jupiter with Chiron further opens the gates of healing and teaching in water signs Scorpio and Pisces. Uranus back in Aries restores unions of leaders of leaders! We WILL proceed. The Scorpio New Moon finds the deepest re-solutions. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus finds an alternate Path to skirt the blocks, open new territory. PathFinder Jupiter in Sagittarius knows where to go! Keeps the Faith.

Those of you with factors in your chart from 5 to 10 degrees (Oct 30 Sun’s degree at the Ecliptic), especially in Scorpio or 16 to 21 degrees (Oct 30 Pluto at the Ecliptic degree), especially in Capricorn, will have the most potent contact. Take some time out, alone or in the power of a Circle, to receive. The rest of us are counting on you to give us the keys we need to carry that Light forward for a long time to come. I imagine it may take some time to put it into perfect words and working order. That’s ok, but don’t take too long, the planet needs the info soonest. Even if you are awkward at first, some will understand immediately. They too will be guided, but we need you to get us started! Plant those StarSeeds where they will count!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving Unfinished that lies in darkness, that when raised up releases us from the chains of eternal suffering.

Anne Verbiscer says ‘We won’t know just how bright Pluto can get until 2018, but you can be sure we will be watching to find out!’ There won’t be another crossing until December 11, 2178!


This Pluto encounter will be indelibly memorable to those whose charts are linked to it. With such events it can take years to understand their full meaning. But this one has some help! Nov 11, eleven, eleven, 2019 is the TRANSIT OF MERCURY! Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER for our current PLUTO CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! This event is at 18 Capricorn 58. The Transit is at 18 Scorpio 56, only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observes this 2018 event and in 2019 will be at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Why are we not surprised?! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.
