Virgo Shamanic Healer Traditional Smoking Ceremony Saturn Square Chiron

An Aboriginal man performs a traditional “smoking” ceremony as the Asian Cup trophy is carried to the Sydney Opera House for the official draw.  

Late September, this Saturn square was showing up, already in effect at the Sep 19 New Moon. The Nov 2 exact aspect is the day before the Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Full Moon Nov 3. It’s like Saturn hammers the forces into place, if he can get them in his grip. Then the Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, to reveal the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!

Saturn square Chiron has run concurrently with the Jupiter set of four that started late October 2016. It is now the next to the last aspect of the entire set. The very last one is Saturn trine Uranus 11.11.17!

Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. Saturn nails them shut for later consideration, or splits them apart to be reassembled with better materials for a finer fit. Small firewood burns faster. Smaller healing steps can be wise, more easily dealt with in difficult situations. Start where you can, adjust as you go.

The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. Sometimes neither party is willing, or able, to make changes, rebuild. Too tired, weak, overburdened, survival priorities may take precedence. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend marriages at this time unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can wait and do so much better? Though the aspect is activating 24 Sag/Pisces 47, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, it still would be part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

For some people, the square will actually activate their charts well. The aspect itself will present challenge, but you will deal with it comfortably. If it doesn’t aspect your chart at all, it’s just a go by, hardly noticed.

If it is in difficult conditions with your chart…. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows down healing, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, you may make a breakthrough and make a start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it. Make what you’ve got the best it can be.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions. Working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready to anticipated difficult questions. Leave stressful situations if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

This aspect is particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. The Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus has been traveling concurrently with Saturn square Chiron. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!   

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax deductible donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

Shortly after our Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, Nov 11 the entire 2016-17 set finishes with Saturn trine Uranus! This aspect starts a series of only positive aspects through Nov 1, 2018!!!! That’s a go ahead!

Full Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Moon!
Saturn square Chiron, trine Uranus background!

Friday Nov 3 at 10:23 PM Pacific, 11 Taurus/Scorpio 59!

Scorpio Full Frosty Moon Taurus-Scorpio

It may be frosty, but Scorpios can comfortably accommodate radical temperature changes!

Saturn square Chiron leads up to the Full Moon, exact Nov 2 the day before the Full Moon! For some that will not be a cheerful aspect, perhaps losses and lonely. Depending on how it activates your chart, it will present challenges, but easily dealt with. Others won’t notice it at all. But old Saturn hammers the forces into place anyway, if he can get them in his grip. The Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, reveals the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!  See more

Also yet to come is the companion aspect Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11, 11-11! Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first, a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

These two aspects are particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!

Venus at 25 Libra, just invited Saturn to an awards gathering, and she is opposing Uranus in Aries asking him to mind his manners, stop by for just a few minutes. She knows how restless and caged he can feel. She’s sweet in her own sign, and he’s taken with her grace and that she made the effort to include him though at times he can be bristly. She was intrigued by him and would like to see him again, but she’s likely right, it’s only a brief encounter. He and Saturn or into some timely necessary work. They are cleaning up messes and forging a better future. Maybe later on…or maybe they engage her to soothe the constituents, balance the forces, add her touch of beauty.

In the last 3 to 4 days, Mercury in Scorpio has just mingled with the whole group, pivotal! He is leaving midpoint Venus and Saturn, aided their connection by knowing secrets of each. He trined Chiron, hoping to bestow healing tips, cleaver teaching that leaves them wanting more! Having been inconjunct, askew Uranus, he disguised his ideas to make Uranus in Aries thought they were his own. Worthy ambushes. Uranus retains his leadership and happiness. Mercury is the mental power battery, quick to see the crevices in the minds of his fellows. He snatches the inklings, spreads the Word, plies his craft well!

Moon is quickly leaving Mars, Sun is faster and leaving Mars. Mars is leaving semisextile Jupiter. What’s done has been done. Things are moving on without him. Sun is leaving Jupiter too.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 11 degrees will be directly linked to the Full Moon and Neptune. The Moon in Taurus, and Sun in Scorpio favorably connect with Neptune of Dreams. Taurus is a steady worker, determined every single day. It may seem small gains at first, but the next thing you know the whole field is plowed. Or the landscaping has grown and looks beautiful. Ironically, ashes of fires are like a fertilizer. Neptune is a Guide, and Angel, a sweet Soul that takes your hand when you get scared and stubborn. Neptune makes music that can call you, haunt you, make you dance like Kokopelli or Zorba the Greek! Neptune knows when to be gentle or give you the boot in the backside, knowing you will be ok. Nothing like being in fresh space on new ground!

Sun in Scorpio lights the way through the darkest times, even at night when the Sun isn’t shining, through the caves of unlighted consciousness, inner space, our tubular psychology! We step out of denial, fascinated by the possibilities after all! Scorpio celebrates the darker times of life, Halloween, honoring at the Day of the Dead, our rip roaring stupendously impressive ancestors who survived in dangerous times! We have a residual power through the Matriarchy and Patriarchy, past lives. Sensitive and psychic Neptune reveals hidden strengths. Spiritual mentors may become apparent, loosening our perception to understand more of our gifts. A good Sensei teaches you your unique prowess, healing talents, tunes your wholeness, connects you with your true center, honors the connections with all.

Sun will sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet Nov 9 in the wee hours of the morning Pacific time, so essentially Nov 8 is it’s most active day. That’s two/three days before Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11! So the Sun of this Full Moon also links the two Saturn aspects that are the background of this Full Moon. Outer planet aspects are important because they are more long term. Their matters take time to develop, be instilled, be consciously used. Pluto, as is Scorpio, is a force to be reckoned with. The Sun in Scorpio knows how to deal with Pluto. Pluto may be a bit old fashioned in Capricorn, but there are new potentials to be reaped. There are good and powerful connections to be made. The Sun is the Heart of Light and shows the way.

“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” – Bill Gates, Oct. 28 – Scorpio Sun, Venus, Saturn; Jupiter conjunct Pluto

New Moon!  Opposite Star Algol, leaving trine Procyon!!
Four Planets, Stellium in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center, leaving square Chiron, trine Uranus!
Jupiter trine Neptune….

Saturday November 18, at 3:42 AM Pacific, 26 Scorpio 19!

New Moon Crescent Goddess Eos Dawn Mask Cyndy Salisbury

In honor of Halloween, Cyndy Salisbury’s mask of Eos, dawn, emerges out of the dark of Night. Resurrection, Rebirth, Reawakening, Rejuvenation. About Cyndy and mask making

Our Scorpio New Moon is truly Celestial! It connects with two Stars and the Galactic Center!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher. We see what surrounds us with greater comprehension.

Saturn is now at the GC at 26 Sagittarius, as it was 28, 29 years ago! Saturn will be at, conjunct the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

We are now living the legacy of the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, the challenges of stabilizing in the aftermath of fires, floods and quakes. Even without drastic events, it may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces can have a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it!

We are also in the building for change Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus. We will strive for greater sustainability, community efficiency, more meaningful life work, working together. Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work.

Correspondingly, the New Moon is at the same degree as Saturn, a sign apart! In turn, then, the New Moon was just trine Chiron and inconjunct Uranus! Semisextile Saturn gives it a serious sense of the need to get things done, maneuver behind the scenes to back Saturn’s play. The trine to Chiron in Pisces increases knowing the sensitivity and delicacy some things will require. Many are suffering losses of everything they had and loved ones as well. Others are exultantly freed of what was a suffocating daily bondage. Some are suicidal, others are able to step up to the plate. It’s a fine choice whether to be gentle for a long time, or to heartfully bully them to stand up, lift their chin and get on with it. Martyr time is over.

Inconjunct with Uranus means this is a time to start incorporating change into your life. Uranus is the planet of evolution, mightier than any sword or pen! The part of you that is unique is called to contribute. It’s exhilarating when you step into this new level, zone! For a long time you were learning skills that now will be used to their fullest capacity in collaboration with likeminded Souls for the greater good of all! Uranus in Aries can be solo, or the work can be done by a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Deliberately join forces! Make connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity!

This New Moon has super Scorpio flavor with FOUR planets, a stellium in Scorpio the 16th – 18th! The New Moon is a potent time all of its own, with Moon joining Sun, being infused with intense Scorpio energy, energized by the special healing Light of Scorpio. Mother Moon is intuitive in her own right and more so in Scorpio. She let’s no pain or sorrow not be comforted by her understanding. You can tell her your secrets and as any good midwife, she guards what you share.

Jupiter gives a huge boost to Scorpio energy! He amplifies relationships, shares through hardships, celebrates and multiplies financial successes in rapid progression. Healing happens faster than ever before, and Scorpios have amazing healing powers, both of self and in behalf of others! Clearing psychological messes, plumbing matters both internal and in housing, financial accounting is tracked and justified, security for breakins and thefts is seriously installed. Wills are made, elder needs are anticipated and dealt with in generous ways. Just be careful on that motorcycle!

Jupiter’s next stop is trine Neptune in his own sign Pisces Dec 2! That will be the first aspect that starts the 2018 set! From Scorpio of the Underworld, to Neptune the ultimate dreamer, gifted visionary, Jupiter will see underlying causes, apply the greatest healing possible. Jupiter in Scorpio can be a phenomenal fundraiser for causes, concerts, spas, foundations for learning, sponsoring research. Beliefs may be in exceptional harmony.

Venus in Scorpio is either spoiled truly rotten, learning skills neglected as bills are paid for you, or, you are blessed with beauty beyond measure, inborn charisma that brings champion contenders to you, a keen awareness of the intent of others, and an astute judgment of how worthy and long lasting an investment may be. She will sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, very early the 21st. Have your ideas in mind and make your request the 20th. Good time to ask for that raise, promotion depending on factors in your personal chart.

OTHER FACTORS  Mercury has just left sextile with Mars. Mars in Libra made some quick no-nonsense introductions, gave options for action on both sides. His leadership is to the point, fights a good fight. Mercury carries the Word, lets the people know about the project, the cause. In Sagittarius, Mercury wants to teach, inspire, go places, look much further ahead, make the plans! Mars will make the exact square to Pluto the wee hours of Sunday the 19th, so New Moon day, or the day before, will see the most challenge. Mars is forthright, wants to cross the gap, make a bridge. Pluto in Capricorn is the old Guard, generally quite cautious, knows how to sidestep upstarts. So prove why what you want is valuable, be persistent, be concise. This may be a time to propose, but have to wait and see.

TWO FIXED STARS!

The New Moon is opposite Mischief-maker Algol at 26 Taurus. It holds a distinction of being an eclipsing binary. Every 68 hours and 49 minutes this Demon Star ‘blinks’ for roughly 8 hours as the dimmer star of the pair passes between the brighter and the earth. We have a ‘duality’ of light and seeming blindness, or a timeout to contemplate. And it is an illusion. We just can’t see the dimmer star though it is there.

Bernadette Brady says: “This star seems to contain immense female passion and power. Algol represents a strong consuming passion that may devour you with anger and rage. If one can contain an unconscious compulsion to take revenge, and from that passion return a more productive outcome, Algol is one of the most powerful stars in the sky. Whatever planet it affects in your chart will be charged with strong, intense sexual energy that has the potential to be wonderful, of if repressed, to lead to rage or violence.” Scorpio is considered to have great passion and power, sometimes plagued by issues of revenge. Either this Star will highlight that, exacerbate it, or draw it off through another on the other side who is steady in the Light.

Diana Rosenberg says Algol in a chart doesn’t necessarily mean that one will inflict or be the victim of horror and mayhem: “you will not be able to ignore suffering and horror, or brush it aside… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime. Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity.” See much more

Procyon, almost 26 Cancer, is also binary, but not eclipsing! It is the smaller of Orion’s hunting dogs. It has a quite different interpretation than the dread Algol. Procyon in trine, a favorable aspect, with our New Moon, likely its more positive factors will be activated. Will-power and ability to put thoughts and plans into action, wealth and renown. With the Sun, a valiant demeanor is indicated! However, it also has a tendency to a hot temper and impudence, and dog bites! Take it easy and don’t torment the dog! LOL

BOWL! All the planets in our New Moon Astrology Chart are in just over half the wheel! That is not so common. A Bowl pattern collects energy in the many ways its planets are in their signs, the circuits they make or don’t among themselves. The energy is contemplated, examined, sorted, healed, enhanced, energized, redistributed. It may be partially or all held for use by the recipient, or perhaps for safekeeping. When the time is right, all or part of it may be poured forth back into the Universe to hold a specific place in the Light Grid. It may be sent to be a receiver/transmitter. It may be called to in turn heal a weak spot in the valence. You can use this kind of energy sustenance, a repair, upgrade replacement, or a system connection of your own. In a clean array, it can attract more amazing energy to mingle with and upgrade to further levels of understanding. No limits!

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

Animal Medicine! Scorpions and snakes that shed their skins, reptiles in general, 8 legged Spiders, Crows, Owls, Bats, Eagle, and Phoenix! From Halloween creatures to mythological, ground dwellers to flyers, Scorpio has quite an array of creatures all symbolizing different facets and skills! Practice and be aware of the energy you are calling or may apply and why.

Again I leave you with Rumi’s words:

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi (Libra Sun & Mercury, Venus & Mars in Scorpio. Born 9-30-1207)

Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus!

 


Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

Thursday Oct 5, at 11:40 AM Pacific, 12 Aries/Libra 43!

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

Full Moon Party at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa! Guests will feast on a three-course meal from Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen on the 5th Floor Oceanfront Terrace before celebrating the night away! Fort Lauderdale, FL 

Happy Harvest Moon! This year the Full Moon nearest the Autumnal Equinox is in October. It is also called the Hunter’s Moon, Travel or Dying Moon. It is end of summer, beginning of Fall. Leaves are ‘falling,’ days are shortening, it’s getting cooler. Gardeners harvest; Hunters gather and process game for winter stores. Now that harvest is done, we are free to travel.

This year, in social Libra, it is a time to gather with loved ones outdoors, eat sweet moon cakes, admire the harvest moon, and celebrate the abundance of life. The full moon is a symbol of prosperity, wholeness, and reunion. Family and friends—no matter where they are in the world—can gaze upon and enjoy the same beautiful moon. No matter what happens, you have each other! If you are in a fire or storm area, please take some time to give thanks with new friends. To those of you who are hurting, maybe alone for now, we send our love always. Bless you and keep you and yours.

Mercury and Sun are together this Libran Full Moon. Mercury is being very aware and thoughtful of others. Communications are vital when there are disasters or political shakeups. A cool head and a lot of heart can bring people together in unusual circumstances. In spite of discomforts and fear, this is a huge opportunity. Unlikely champions will rise. Prejudicial limitations will seem senseless. We just help each other because we need help. Lifelong friendships will be made across all lines.

The Moon, always opposite the Sun at Full Moons, is in Aries, the sign of forthright action, first responders, leaders. The Moon is unconditional love and support and independently gathers the food and distributes it as needed. We are all Family. This support gives rise to a grateful independence, more assertiveness, fights for rights of our own and in behalf of others, especially for children.

Sun/Mercury and Moon are directly tied with Neptune! Mercury and Sun are inconjunct, askew Neptune. Mercury is logic, Neptune is not. Neptune the Dreamier is more soulful and psychic, impressionistic. Mercury talks, writes lyrics, while Neptune listens or makes music to the words. Sun in Libra brings people, maybe artists, to meet Neptune, but he may be away in the Ashram or not available until late in the night. Neptune may be brightened by the visit but glad when he has his solitude again. Moon in Aries is hard pressed to slow down for these things. She may push too much and lose the game, or the others may catch on and see it’s important not to miss out or delay important progress by not keeping up!

Oppositions have an across-the-table quality. There you are, right before me. We may be different, but we can shake hands, discuss our mutual goals, divvy up the work between us. We may do it differently, but together we can get there! Sun lights the way, Moon supports and reflects the Light to others! Teamwork!

Cardinal T Square! They are bringing the Light to bear on Pluto, a planet of darkness, a holder of secrets and healing! In Capricorn, Pluto is in the Moon’s opposite sign. There is a resonance since Moon rules Mothers and Capricorn is Fathers! The challenge is to raise Pluto’s sights from old ways that used to work, were necessary then, to fresh options and new alliances. Sometimes the Healer needs rescuing! On the other hand, Moon, Sun and Mercury may need to pass through Pluto’s cleansing gateway before they may go on. There is a test for both sides. Will Pluto see the Light? Will the upstarts clear themselves with the Master? Likely there will be a little temporary consternation and perhaps a little chaos, but the Cardinal signs rarely forego a good challenge! They have natural inborn jump starters!

The Mutable T Square starts with Mars and Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, they in turn square Saturn in Sagittarius! This one is more long term since Saturn takes until Nov 2 to square Chiron. The Venus/Mars conjunction is really fresh! It just happened at 9:53 AM Pacific, just a couple hours before the Harvest Moon! There are details to consider, reorganization that pays off. Distribution is needed. Mars does what it takes. Venus goes ahead of him advertising the values of the opportunity! Though working independently for the time being, Mars could use some partners for his project, cause. Chiron may be asleep over there in Pisces, but senses the shift and stirs. Something has happened and as a healer, he is curious what Virgo has started. He prefers herbs and natural remedies when possible.

Saturn, having been in Sagittarius for a while now, is more amenable to learning about healthy remedies that increase longevity. Not only is it important what we learn, but how we learn it, what we do with it and when. Virgos test their ideas, the quality is there as they promise. They are expert at hands on training. Chiron sees the value of the body/mind connection as well of those with the Soul. Saturn thinks this is a working tenet, so engages, giving what time and support he can, lending his name.

Sep 27 Jupiter opposed Uranus! People have been having huge differences of principles, ethics. Politically balances of social constructs have been undergoing dramatic change. Natural disasters have forced people from their homes, families have separated to survive, or from the result of new laws. Fires, floods, earthquakes. Fear has occurred on so many levels. Change, evolution is inevitable, but recently it has been high chaos and tumult! So much at once. Jupiter is the planet of magnitude, Uranus is the masses. No one escapes! I’ve written how Libra is a sign of recovery of balance. While Jupiter is still in Libra until Oct 10, use its ability for all its worth. See where it currently is traversing your personal astrology chart and work it! Together, consciously and well focused, we can get a lot done. So many are stepping up to the plate, ie our super hero this month! JJ Watt, only 28 years old, has raised over $37M Harvey Relief Funds!

Also yet to come is Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11 – 11-11! They are currently 5 degrees apart, but closing. Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first Nov 2. First is a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

All the outer planets are involved in our Harvest Moon – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! This Full Moon is linked with long term factors. AND, ALL the Full Moon inner planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – activate all the outer planets! They all spur the outer planets on, and are themselves changed by the encounters. Not one planet is in a Fixed sign, holding things steady. It’s not the time for it. The Cardinal planets get things moving; the Mutable planets make the accommodations to facilitate flow! It’s a grand integration, truly FULL!x

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus! 

Thursday October 19, at 12:12 PM Pacific, 26 Libra 35!

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

This thin crescent is post Sunset just after a New Moon.

This is the first lunar event of Jupiter newly in Scorpio as of ten, ten, Oct 10th! The context is wholly different now. It’s been 11/12 years, since Oct 2006, and all the outer planets have changed signs! Saturn has been through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, now in Sagittarius! Scorpio wants it deep and bonded – for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, ’til death do us part. Lifelong. Jupiter wants vital education for a prosperous future for life to be exceptionally blessed. The stakes are high. When it can, Libra offers the connections needed to enhance the opportunity for it to happen.

Libra is the Sunset time of day. It is the Sign of gathering after the day’s work, sharing what the day brought, planning the next day. It’s a time of equanimity, between day and night, equal at Equinox. We welcome a quieter time of day and year. Days will be shorter and it’s cooler. Some time will be spent in contemplation, creating art that tells our story, makes beauty. We will spend more time indoors together. Rather than scattering for evenings outdoors, we gather indoors for dances, theatre, symphonies, art shows. Being social is natural.

A dark night in Libra can be a most potent meeting of Self and Soul. The Moon relates to her people – forbears and children. The Sun relates to his own heart, his courage, his expression of Light. Together they merge the past with creating a powerful union for the future.

At 26 Libra the New Moon is sextile the Galactic Center, opposite Uranus, the planet of the Heavens! And the New Moon is just past the exact inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher.

Saturn, 23 Sagittarius, is now very near the GC at 26 Sagittarius 59! Saturn will be at the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Again, Saturn will trine Uranus, only 3 degrees apart now, exact eleven eleven, Nov 11! This is the third and last time. As before, Dec 24, 2016 and May 18, 2017, Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work. New careers of deeper meaning will be created and forged. See more!

This aspect is important because Uranus is 26 Aries 31, directly opposite the New Moon and trine the Galactic Center! There is no chance things will stay the same! You might be scared or so excited you can hardly contain yourself, both! Evolution is! Aries is the leader, champion. Uranus and Aries can be solo, or they can be a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Libra has more propriety, but is also a sign of leadership, making connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity! Can’t be done without them. Infusion from the great center of the Galaxy will be potently activating many Souls at this New Moon!

All this will be considered under the auspice of Moon and Sun having inconjunted Chiron in Pisces. Healing insightfully, mindfully, with appropriate timing, with no condescension, is sometimes a delicate achievement. Making your patient, client, student a ‘partner’ in their own healing creates a powerful union.

This aspect helps prepare us for the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron the third time. That is generally not an easy aspect. It may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces with a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it! You can. See more!

Mercury just conjuncted Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time in 11/12 years! What an intense consult! There may have been some awkward moments as we get used to this new energy. Mercury is clever with words, but it’s still a new language. Mercury is rarely overwhelmed, but this time he may have reach for it! Jupiter offers as much as you can take, and Scorpio is famous for extremes!

As with Chiron, Scorpio calls for healing. Jupiter heals and updates our purpose. Mercury heals our mind and communications, thinking and learning skills. What you say, how you say it makes a difference. Jupiter wants the whole Truth. Scorpio may protect what must be protected, but also release important revelations. Mercury’s choice is whether to keep the secret and find a way to bring information to help without letting others know their source or the full story. Or, it may be time to do the journaling and exposé, clean up the mess. Could be a little dangerous. Watch out for compulsions and obsessive mind sets. No verbal abuse – none given, none accepted. No being mean or scornful and self righteously thinking it’s ok because you are ‘right.’ Stay clean. Jupiter has a lot of hope, no matter how ‘dark’ the times may seem. Often things you don’t know about are at work in your behalf. Wait for it. Scorpio is the sign of rising from the dead, the Phoenix from its own ashes! That’s a tough combo to beat. Mercury is good at slipping through the cracks out of harm’s way! Stay with it and don’t give up!

That should be doable with Venus in her own sign Libra watching carefully and treading lightly. She is neighborly semisextile to Mercury. Keep the dance moving, adjust your center as you move. Remember that balance is a living medium, rarely equal or symmetrical. Grace may be more the word. Beauty marks the passage. Kindness shows the way.

Upcoming Saturn aspects make this an important New Moon, as well as this Moon being the first Lunar event in Jupiter in Scorpio! Relationships we make, and how we relate, are critical to our success. Jupiter enjoys Libra – studies, travel, fun! Scorpio is Libra’s astrological neighbor leading the way. Libra supports. In old astrology, Saturn was considered to be exalted, in its best placement in Libra. Libra rules Lawyers, Saturn is the Law! Jupiter is judges! Law is not just what is on the books, but what is in our hearts and the laws of how we treat each other. How we judge, looking for the best in others, keeps us all working for a positive future.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon!  Regulus & a lot of Mercury! 

New Moon!  Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

The Virgo Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well!

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique! It was the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that was at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle started – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde started August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects you started from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse was during the Retrograde part of the cycle! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

The Rx cycle includes two signs: Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Aug 21 SECOND Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE! …at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!

Augx22   Happy Virgo!

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon! – Regulus & a lot of Mercury!

Wednesday Sep 6, at 00.03 AM Pacific, 13 Virgo/Pisces 53!  

Virgo 2017 Full Moon Clouds Pink

Sep 5 Mercury goes Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse degree! When a planet turns direction, it is called being in Station – being still in the sky, with no apparent visual motion. With Mercury it is an 8 day period, 4 before, 4 after the turn. There is an in dwelling, a deepening focus, a thorough examination of the matters at hand, strengthening, an anchoring of a thought or principle. Choose your thoughts carefully, select the best of your hopes and plans. Though the Full Moon doesn’t connect with Mercury by degree, Sun and Moon are held in this stance, place of mind. If you stand still until you really see. The differences of Moon in Pisces, Sun in Virto, become more apparent, each having its own value, a necessary contributor to the greater cause. At the time of the Eclipse, Moon and Sun were in Leo. Now they are spanning Virgo to Pisces. Time to use the Leo heart energy to take the next step, make your dreams come true.

This Full Moon is Moon in Pisces, the Master Dreamer and Visionary, opposite Sun in Virgo the DNA LightWeaver, Healing Goddess! Pisces Moon is at the mast! She holds the Voyage, sometimes adrift, sometimes fearlessly surging through a gale and high seas! Virgo charts the stars, minds the crew, weaves their Souls intricately in fine patterns to get the job done most magnificently! Each compliments the other. When Moon is spread too thin, Sun in Virgo gathers in the bits so they pull together. When Virgo over thinks, worries, Pisces reminds that there are greater powers that guide us and the cause is the cause, always!

Moon has just been with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet, so she knows this to be doubly true, formidable, and psychically uncannily accurate! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time.

Moon is inconjunct Venus in Leo! There will be a call to the arts – music, film, video, theatre. There will be the grace of water sports – wind sailing, paddle boards, surfing and sailing, kayaking. Seeing the world on an ocean cruise will fulfill a need to connect beyond the ordinary. There may be a mediation group or Tai Chi, Yoga class that brings you to silence, peace, serenity, tranquility. As super new things change in your life, old addictions that held you captive will be forgotten and replaced with a vibrant competence. There are new reasons for living, possibly a sweetheart becomes apparent, steps up!

Sun in Virgo is radiant. She plants seeds, walks in the woods. She clears and cleans letting bright light shine. She creates space that allows mind clearing air flow! Flowers bloom leading us to heal more quickly. Deep breath. Sun trines, a strong favorable connection, with Pluto, the Master of the Underworld, yet the Phoenix that rises, lives again! Revelation fired by the Kundalini, the energy at the base of our spines, uplifts us to the Eagle’s keen perception. Virgo sees the illness, keeps us comfortable that Pluto may heal the cause. As humans we come with some flaws, a work in progress. Some matters that need healing are from past lives, others are when we have harmed ourselves, or been harmed by others. It’s a challenging job to weed out and sort the mess, but Pluto is undaunted by complex circumstances. Pluto, in Capricorn, drives the effort. He knows how valuable an experienced person can be, how strong they are to have faced it and made it. Virgo is there all the time with that candle, bringing Light to the Dark. She makes sure the spiritual operating theatre is good for the work and is skillful at rewiring old mindsets.

Moon and Neptune are right there too, sextiling Pluto. They are intuitive to each other, speak and see as one. They see the child, how parental and cultural background has significance. They see how broken or abandoned dreams have had consequence and speak to subtleties about how to process their release. They know how to instill a greater vision now that times have changed and the person is more mature and able.

28 LEO Mercury stands close to the Inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces and trine with Uranus in Aries, but it is just whispers and hints, faint reminders. Mercury inconjuncted Chiron and trined Uranus back on about July 22nd, and on July 24th. So much has happened since then. The context has changed… What is significant is 28 Leo was the degree of the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! Whatever was special to you about that Eclipse, it is time to think on and talk about! Remember, Mercury in Leo is in station, so we want to anchor your best ideas, the ones of heart and Light, ones with special potential. I hope you made some notes at Eclipse time, because it isn’t over yet if that Eclipse activated your chart! (See your astrologer!)

While stationed in Leo, Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet considered to be the highest echelon of intelligence! Mercury is quick on his winged feet spreading the news, but Uranus the genius rules the Universe, evolution, awakening, flight, and the Internet, LOL! But really, what can one do without the other?! Mercury needs information to share; Uranus needs someone to spread the Word! Mercury teaches us how to learn, speak well in a good way. Uranus opens us to realms of Being we never knew existed! Both are essential. Uranus is currently in Aries the sign of Initiation, champions, leaders! Leo is the HeartLight, creation, young people finding themselves. Love and leading go well together! Uranus will surely change our minds for the better in that 8 day station! We will keep the thoughts, add a few of our own, and let them be known far and wide. Bright.

Mercury in Leo, hopefully with grand projects on his mind, is just about to change signs into Virgo Sep 9, catch up with Mars Sep 16, and make like a sphinx with him! Half Lion, half Woman, the Sphinx embodies the Leo/Virgo signs – Leo the Lion, Virgo the Virgin. There is much to talk about and you can be assured that champion, hero Mars will quickly do his very best to help Mercury with the work! Mercury will be gaining momentum after the turn, moves right along, passing Mars, on to the next project.

Mars newly at 0 Virgo is conjunct fixed star Regulus, so you can expect his contribution to be elegant and maximum! Regulus used to be in Leo. It was one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the watcher of the South, the King! Now in Virgo, I dub him/her the Healing Goddess! Maybe Chiron is her planet. Mars wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time! He is quite capable of giving the boot to the next level! Quick to analyze, he gives you a shove it he thinks you can make it! He encourages, is right to the point. He inspires you instantly! In Virgo he gets you exercising perfectly per your conditions! Oxygen gets to your brain and fuels your next choice! He gets you charged then passes you right by, on his way to the next spiritual soldier that needs a boost!

Jupiter and Saturn made their sextile but are still plenty close and active. Lots of plans made and a ton getting done! Jupiter is finishing last days in Libra. Social relationships are being made, groomed, extended into greater territories. We are committing to distant travels and tours, and superior education. Publishing our works is important, probably timely. Political ethics and justice are getting a workout from grassroots to corporate levels. See more!

Sep 23 and 27 are the next aspects coming, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! These will be the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. As Jupiter moves in closer, the aspects will be in the traditional ranges thought to have effect. After them, Saturn will be squaring Chiron Nov 2.

Besides being about Virgo and Pisces, this Full Moon is a lot about Mercury. They are tied together because Mercury rules Virgo and the retrograde ties to the Moons! As one teacher said, ‘Where your attention goes, your energy flows.’ Straight ahead!

New Moon! Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

Tuesday September 19, at 10:30 PM Pacific, 27 Virgo 27!

Virgo 2017 New Crescent Moon Cleaning Stars

Virgo angels are often at work making our lives brighter, even at New Moon time! 

As is said above, the Virgo Full and New Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde Cycle! Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well! The SAME DAY of our New Moon at 27 Virgo, the Mercury Retrograde Cycle finishes at 11 Virgo! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Mercury rules communications – speaking, listening. The four moons connected with Mercury’s Retrograde cycle have each brought a special perception. It is fitting the whole cycle matures, finishes in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign! Virgo organizes our thoughts, fits the puzzle pieces together, expedites the project to a polished and quality result!

4 Occultations! There is a unique lead in energy preparing this New Moon. Pacific time, Sep 17 Venus at 27 Leo, the star Regulus at 0 Virgo, Sep 18 Mars at 8 Virgo and Mercury at 10 Virgo are occulted! Occultations are mini eclipses! The Moon and those planets are perfectly lined up! That’s three inner planets in two days. Channels are open from and to those three planets! There is a purity. Messages are clear and potent! Venus of values and grace, star Regulus the heart of the constellation of Leo the Lion and at the crossroad of Leo/VIrgo – the Sphinx (half Lion, half Woman), Mars the leader and champion, Mercury of communications – transmit and listen! The 19th Venus enters Virgo just in time for the New Moon!

The occultations occur in less than 24-hours time. This will be the first time since March 5, 2008, that three planets have been occulted by the moon in less than one day. The next time won’t be until July 24, 2036.

With this New Moon having FIVE planets, a stellium, in Virgo, including Mercury in his own sign Virgo, we can safely say things will get done, and well! Virgo is a common sense Earth sign, a hard worker, last one to leave the office!

Moon with Sun is a potent combination. Sun carries the Light, Moon gives support and give the unconditional love we need! Virgo is worker, at all kinds of enterprises that take care of us on a daily basis. Moon thinks that is terrific. She superlatively minds our nutrition, often has natural remedies, information that saves the day.

Virgo is purity, cleanliness of mind, body and location! She nags us, but the aim is to establish and maintain clear thinking. She adjusts our diet to prevent ailments, cheaper than a doctor, LOL! She detoxes us, and builds better health than ever before! She clears clutter that blocks and burdens us, organizes our lives for clear and streamlined action. Go, Virgo!

Venus just arrived, is at 0 degrees. She loves the work and wants it to be beautiful, valuable and lovingly composed! Might be a quilt or the subtle tints of the paint on the wall in the showroom! Patterns stir our consciousness, labyrinths lead to the center of the world! We relax in the loveliest flower gardens, grow the most healthy herbs and foods. Very sweet caregiver.

Mars in Virgo gives good measure for time spent! He works best independently. Definitely an Earth mover! Outdoors might be his forte. In construction put him to work on woodworking, the cabinets installations and clean up! He will be the best delivery person you ever had! He may volunteer to take food to home bound people and elders.

Moon naturally takes on the home nurturing role; Sun leads us to extend that service to our community! Virgos are very clever Souls and much sought after. There have always been tenders and nannies, butlers, caregivers and nurses and accountants. We couldn’t live without them! Well we could, but things are more better with them! They have specific amazing skills! They are downright excellent at garden care and landscaping. Botanic gardens…. Veterinary.

Mars and Mercury are opposite Neptune. He’s been waiting for them. Mercury and Neptune are each in their own signs. They are strongly placed. Neptune the dreamer and savior, offers insights to spiritual dilemmas, meditation to sooth the monkey mind. Mercury has just crossed Mars, and is supercharged! Mercury wants to learn everything at once, chat and do logic, give the news on these new discoveries! And Mercury discovers there is more than words. Empathy is important too. Mars, though generally forthright and furious, in Virgo is a bit more careful in it’s approach. Quiet tiptoes might be the way when with the sleeping Giant Neptune that sees all, especially if he is sleeping?! Rude questions and probing may provoke a chilled silence that is an unpredictable entity all its own. Oops. Ok, breathe. Gentle respect more likely due. Perhaps the technique and skill of the process is more important than the content of the encounter?

Mars and Mercury are trine Pluto in Capricorn! They all are Earth sign harmonious. Practical. Reasoning. Limits and laws. Mercury is forging ahead of Mars, first on the premises. Capricorn, the sign of elders and professionals, needs respect, and Pluto has a lot of private business. It may take a getting-to-know-you period before there is sharing. If you are offering services, you need to be bonded. If you are looking for a story be careful what you say. Mars might push a little harder than Mercury, but too much push can be felt to be suspicious. Pluto is always watching the back door. If it is an instant go ahead connection, you’re on! Ask your questions, offer innovative ideas, propose your price. If it is a personal relationship, while away the hours together, share secrets, do a project that fills your hearts!

The New Moon and Chiron have just made a T square with the Galactic Center! Squares can be a nuisance, blocks, but they also bring breakthroughs and building! Chiron is soulfully diligent seeking cures of body and mind, but in Pisces more of Spirit. Sometimes we get a wee bit lost, could be fears, addictions, cloudy vision, depleted dreamtime or dreams too vivid. At the point of the T Square,the Galactic Center is in Sagittarius, the place of the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It is a fire sign that lights the way, points the direction to take! It is a cheerful sign of hope and optimistic there is a fine future ahead! This perspective helps us break free from old things that have haunted us.

The New Moon is also within minutes of inconjunct Uranus in Aries! The gateway is is oblique, off to the side. it isn’t mainstream, could even be brushed aside as too weird or off putting, but Moon is is concerned for her territory, so takes a look. Moon is leery of such an upstart and for good reason! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, evolutionist, ahead of its time. The Moon protects culture and the home, sudden changes can be scary, upset the Virgo family routine. Moon is also curious. In her cycles she sees many things and may be bored, and in Virgo she is always amenable to a better way. So she may choose to watch from a safe distance at first.

The Sun is the planet in natural opposition to Uranus. Sun rules Leo, opposite sign to Aquarius, Uranus’ sign. Sun in Virgo may feel somewhat similar to the Moon in this instance. Virgos are not usually robust champions. They are more delicately put together. Like feathers in the weather vane, they sense shifts in the valence, minute disruptions of natural order. But they all may have a quick consult. Uranus in Aries instantaneously inspires. As Moon and Sun go by, they will be excited by the possibilities!

27 Virgo squares the Fixed Stars Polaris and Betelgeuse. Both are at 28 Gemini, but in very different locations in the sky! Polaris is the Pole Star, at the North Pole of Earth, the stars appearing to rotate around it. Its declination is +89. It has long been a guiding star to sailors and caravans. The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star! Polaris has been given mixed interpretations of high honors, misery and spiritual power. I would think which or how much of each, would depend on how it is situated in a given chart and the aspects at a given time. In this case, both Sun and Moon in a challenge aspect it could indicate Gemini/Virgo mind/body challenges, honors lost or hard won, a block in communications since Gemini and Virgo are Mercury’s two signs! A clear direction may not be immediately apparent or without some effort.

The same square exists with Betelgeuse, but Betelgeuse, declination only +7, is entirely a different character! Rather than at the Pole, Orion is located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world! Polaris is at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear. Betelgeuse is in Orion’s right shoulder! Rather than the Guide, Betelgeuse is part of the hunter warrior! Great fortune and fame, especially military success, are potential, and it is also associated with calamities, danger, and violence! Warriors take their chances! Our New Moon in Virgo may contribute to strategies, might be a stealthy and clever hunter, but is rarely a warrior. Virgo may take care of the wounded, but would rather deal with Gemini’s commerce, offering business skills. Virgo may be grateful for Gemini’s news of new techniques and cures at the front, but will likely quietly incorporate it in it’s life on its own. Likely to be a meet, greet and move on. The Moon was on Betelgeuse when the 1st tower was struck on 9/11.

Moon’s North Node is retrograding to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Moon’s nodes are thought to link to past lives. The South is what we did, the North is how we want to balance that. In Leo, it is calling for Heart and Light, radiant being, a creative Spirit! Saturn is thought of as the Reaper, what we sow is what we get, or it is what we are responsible for. Sometimes we owe from past lives. In the process, we work toward Dharma, the work of the Soul. Often I find people who are living their Saturn, doing the work it symbolizes, are the happiest! Moons Nodes and Saturn symbolize a harmony of Moon, Mother, and Saturn, Father/Time. Leo to Sagittarius can be inspiring performance, teaching, sharing the best we have to give!

There are two outer planet combinations that the New Moon opens gateways to and prepares us for.

  • First is the Sep 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! They are the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. The new Moon is directly tied to all three! Jupiter is scouting for learning, healing. In Libra it wants to establish a friendly relationship, an open exchange. Jupiter may cheer Chiron in Pisces out of some of his wounds and worries. Chiron intuits Jupiter’s excesses and cheerfulness that covers any fears and failures. Ok to fail. Sometimes better that happened! This work is of great interest to Virgo who seeks natural balances, cures, and working relationships.
  • Opposite Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra is at some moments appalled by the indignity of seemingly aimless rushing about, yet is intrigued no end and finds himself in a new cosmic culture, dancing the dash! Haven’t had so much fun in ages, who cares what you look like?! Libra’s social meter may meet max trying to keep up with all those new acquaintances, but there is so much to learn and he doesn’t want to miss a thing! Extraordinary! They can make tremendous achievements together! Uranus has the genius and research; Libra knows the law and gets the patent!
  • Second is Saturn square Chiron, exact November 2. This is not considered an easy aspect by many. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows healing down, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, this time you may make a breakthrough and make a fresh start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it.

Those of you who tinker with the numbers probably have noticed the Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27! In astrology, the 2nd and 7th signs are Taurus and Libra, both Venus ruled. May Love and Beauty prevail! 2 + 7 is 9, as this New Moon completes the Mercury Retrograde cycle over a course of five lunar events!

As one lunar cycle ends, a new one begins. There is a maturity, ending, gratefulness, letting go, moving on. Natural. Take some quiet moments, have a circle gathering, rest, assess what’s up and in the wind. The foundation you have built will stand you in good stead for what’s to come. Sign by sign we follow the stars through the Year. Virgo is sign 6, halfway through, soon to tip the scale into Libra! Most honorable.

Blessed be ~
