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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Archangel Gabriel Sounds His Horn. Ft. Worth, Texas

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

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

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

Full Pink Moon!

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

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

Full Moon Pink Lunar Eclipse Rassouli - Journey of Love

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In gratitude for your profound work.

Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future.

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter in Libra inconjunct Chiron, started the 2016 set of SIX aspects in retrograde, reverse order through May 18. The wildest of the set, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the seven time Uranus square Pluto since 2010! At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The square is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.

Uranus has squared Pluto from the Aries side. Now we have Jupiter square Pluto from the Libra side, opposite Uranus!

During these final days of Uranus square Pluto, we have acquired a new president, elected under the auspice of the first Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn Nov 24, 2017. The square was part of a 5 planet TSquare that day, with slow moving outer planets at each point – meaning it had long term impact! See more. It was the aspect leading up to the Nov 8 vote, and became the 1st exact aspect, the opening aspect, after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! 

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. March 2 it opposes Uranus, changes, rebellion! It can be like an explosion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Pluto in Capricorn works with financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare, which are undergoing dramatic changes. Jupiter’s ‘truth’ and opinions are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard Capricorn is protecting and walling in its own. Pluto rules money, old money, oil money. Pluto brings greed, the worst fears of poverty and loss of medical insurances. At best it wants to share and heal, use investments for the greater good.

Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know others better. Jupiter in Libra concerns relationships, social and cultural matters – immigrants, foreign relations. Jupiter calls for the best and highest education. In Libra it often uses examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else. This square is tilting the entire US education system with the appointment of Betsy DeVos. A new balance is being struck.

If this aspect makes difficult connections with your birth chart, be cautious in business, keep your security up to date. Update or make a will as far in advance as possible. See your astrologer for a good date and time. Stay clean in your personal relationships, wait to marry. There may be lack of funding for school, the school, curriculum or instructor you wanted may not be available. Though a challenging time for education, it may need to be done anyway. Make the best of what you can.

Librans, mind your kidneys/sugar. Capricorns, take it easy on your bones, teeth and skin.

The third Jupiter square Pluto will be Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse. If these squares aspect your personal chart, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out. Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for then about these specific matters.

Good news, bad news, complaints and lots needs fixing! Let’s roll up our shirt sleeves and together do what it takes! The work continues. Never give up.

Jupiter Opposition Uranus, Inconjunct Chiron! Exotic Art Journal by Roxanne Coble!

Exotic Art Journal by the mixed media artist, illustrator, & maker of things, Roxanne Coble!

The Book of Life may take you off in strange and wonderful directions, revealing beauty in hidden secrets!

With Jupiter now retrograde, these aspects are happening in reverse order, the inconjunct first on Valentine’s Day, the opposition March 2. This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. When Jupiter was in Virgo, it was opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus! See more! 

Jupiter opposite Uranus started within 5 degrees Nov 26, 2016. It started within 3 degrees of Chiron Dec 5. The first exact pairing, Dec 26, day after Christmas and Dec 31, New Year night! They were the last 2016 outer planets aspects, part of what I’m dubbing the Holiday Four! Since Jupiter is moving slowly, retrogrades Jan 7, the aspects hold within less than 3 degrees continuously until the pair is exact the second times, Chiron Feb 14 and Uranus Mar 2, three months! This is important because as 2016 ended, 2017 begins with 2016’s unfinished business, this time retrograde! Sep 27. 2017 the three year set is completed.
Oppositions and inconjuncts are from here to there! Oppositions are straight across the table. You know your enemy, or potential friend, face to face. There’s no doubt who you each are. Inconjuncts are from one sign to the sign across but to the left or right. They are usually harder to read, easy to ignore and pass by, but their presence can also be nagging or irritating, make you twitch or catch your attention and be inviting!! Like an interesting detour or side trip, you might be glad you took the time to introduce yourself and see why they are there! You might even continue on this new Path, never going back!

Valentine’s Day, Feb 14, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron

Chiron in Pisces is possibly a quieter combination than either Jupiter or Uranus in their air and fire signs. Chiron in water sign Pisces is artistic, a sensitive sign of Spirit and compassion. While the other two are back and forth, Chiron is the observer, both finding flaws and seeing the finer good points. It can bring a deep meaning to the venture, making the difference between mere glory and the Magic of Divine Purpose. It can applaud Jupiter’s good will for all; it can support Uranus’s intent for world community, Unity through new beginnings.

On a daily basis, it can keep the team moving. It sees when people are dispirited, tired, afraid, and brings the remedies. Maybe it’s time for a good swim – cooling down, cleaning up, a rest. So many don’t think of Pisceans as good business people, but Chiron is considered a great business planet, and ocean (Pisces) industries are huge! Shipping, ocean cruises, ocean sports, harbor industries, fishing, on and on, additionally including concerts and all the associated facets. Time out to play and relax – seaside retreats, spas, resorts. Chiron dreams make it whole.

Pisces may have its troubles. We know about addictions. But the new ideas of this threesome may bring new healing and teaching. Pisces can be the Saviour, and Chiron, though never fully recovered, did share his wisdom that still lives in the world today. As we bridge gaps, extend the hand of friendship, sharing opens new doors.

March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!

Jupiter is relatively a regular fellow, and more so in polite Libra! See more Sporty and debonair! Uranus in Aries would never be ordinary! Thunder and Fire, follow no ascribed authority or ordinary rules, rather makes their own then changes them because they can! Freedom reigns. Yet each is interested. Jupiter in Libra has exceptional intelligence, dances quickly, intervenes ingenuously! Even Uranus can’t help but be intrigued. Sharing ideas across the table is inspiring, playful, and Jupiter in Libra has connections to put wild Uranian concepts right on the drawing board, with backers, strategies and planning making it all possible!

Jupiter, though somewhat by the book, gets easily bored and is ready to travel, try out new relationships one after the other! This Uranian fellow keeps his interest more than a minute, flashing no creds, but delightfully fast and intelligent with amazing inventions and insights to keep one thinking. It’s a glorious challenge to see how to bring it into current use before the inventor moves on to the next project. Jupiter is ever optimistic, and Uranus finally meets someone who gives hope for the project!

Yes, they may clash. Jupiter gets opinionated, on his high horse, and Libra simply won’t make a decision, give the go ahead. Uranus gets disappointed, impatient, heard all that before, the put off, maybe this, maybe that. They can leave the table or address the issues. It might work, might not, but they tried. And each will be changed. Perhaps the next time….

Wishing you freedom and very sweet & spicey new beginnings!

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans!

pisces-swimmer-ron-collins-tampa-bay-dirk-shadd

Ron Collins at sunrise Thursday in Tampa Bay at North Shore Park after his morning swim at North Shore Pool in St. Petersburg. Wonderful image by photojournalist Dirk Shadd! See http://dirkshadd.com/portraits/athletes-everyday-heroes/ 

Can you believe a Taurus man, May 4, 1962, is an ocean swimmer hero?! Ron Collins has Neptune, God of the Sea, opposite his Sun and has an amazing relationship with the sea! Jupiter and Chiron are in Pisces, trining (blessing) that Neptune, sextiling his Sun! Ron says, “Next to my family, I love swimming more than anything else in the whole world.”

Ron was named a US Masters Long Distance All-American in the 30-34 age group in 1994, and has won Florida open-water events in Jacksonville, Key West, Melbourne, Lake Wales, Lake Weir, as well as a national championship event in Charlottesville, Va.

He was elected Sanctions Chair for the Florida LMSC in 1996. In 1997, he helped organize the first Tampa Bay Open Water Challenge, a 3.5 mile swim across the bay to help raise money for the environmental group BayWatch whose purpose is to protect and preserve the Tampa Bay estuary.

Ron is the first man to swim the 24-mile length of Tampa Bay, two and a half miles longer than the English Channel! Today that race, directed by Ron, is one of the world’s longest marathon swims, and is held annually in April, in celebration of Earth Day! After the Tampa swim, Ron wanted to complete the third leg of ocean swimming’s Triple Crown! That third leg is the 20-mile crossing from Catalina Island to the California coast. At that time, only 40 had ever swum the English Channel, Manhattan Island and Catalina.

He had completed longer swims — 28 miles around Manhattan — and more famous swims — the English Channel. But this would be the most dangerous. His planned route would put him right in the path of migrating great white sharks. At night. When it’s hard for the sharks to distinguish a seal from a swimmer. The water was a cool 59 and 61 degrees.

Well, he didn’t get eaten but he didn’t make it either. 2 Miles from shore the paramedic called it. He didn’t remember being hauled out of the cold water with hypothermia. But, of course he aimed to try again in warmer water conditions! Taureans don’t give up!

Sep 10, 2013, at age 51, he did it! Ron Collins became the 78th person to complete the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming! Fellow swimmer Randy Nutt says, “Some people are dreamers [Pisces], others are doers. Ron Collins is both.”

Keep swimming, Ron!

PISCES 2017 Celestial Highlights!

USA Aug 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Map!

The purple marker is the point of greatest duration at Carbondale Il, Giant City State Park, 2 minutes, 40.2 seconds! Just a few miles south, holds the distinction of crossing the 2024 eclipse path, making it a unique location for being able to perform observations of both eclipses from the same location! The green marker is the point of the greatest eclipse, in western Kentucky, not far from Hopkinsville. Some of you haven’t heard of this yet, others are all over it, have had your reservations for years in advance!!! Make your viewing plans and reservations ASAP!

Get eclipse glasses! Have a party!

First total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years Aug 21!

The moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun’s beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona. This is a rare, once-in-a-lifetime event for viewers in the United States; people will be coming from all over the world! The last total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States occurred in 1979, 26 years ago, and the next one will not take place until 2024. The path of totality will begin in the Pacific Ocean and travel through the center of the United States. The total eclipse will be visible in parts of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina before ending in the Atlantic Ocean. A partial eclipse will be visible in most of North America and parts of northern South America.

Pisces 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, happened the last 8 days of 2016. 

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The wildest of the set, next, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Pisces 2017-March 2018 !

Pisces! Dolphins surfing South Africa - image by dolphin lover Greg Huglin!

Dolphins surfing off the coast of South Africa by Dolphin lover photographer Greg Huglin!

Get up, get out, frolic, exult in your habitat, joyously leap into your new year!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Pisces, the last sign, is not so concerned with concrete and finances, but is entirely interested in how they are used! A hospital, temple, theatre, an art school, are places where we all are healed. Nonprofits are funded and sustained. Change fear and greed to safety and the joy of abundance to give. Be visionary with your conversions from old stunted places to the dreams of a better world.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! 2017 to March 2018, those of you with chart factors between 11 and 14 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Pisces, it will be potent through and through! For some there will be supreme denial, for others it will be the profound experience of a lifetime. Neptune takes 168 years to do the entire circuit sign by sign. So this is it! Let your feelers tingle, your Spirit soar and be still to the point of invisibility. Feel the tides of life, sometimes cruel, sometime ecstatic with love beyond mortal words or understanding. Feel beauty shimmer through you, a rainbow of fusion.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through March 2018. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries takes action! Pisces flows, where Uranus in Aries is ziggy and darts! Pisces can make a space for this whirlwind, embraces the magic of the mix! Art is tweaked, computer conspired! Old acceptance, compliance, is not encompassing enough. Visions, rather than asleep in dreams, have become the action of leaders and champions! What was once strange is now a new standard. Astonishing new friends carry you along with them!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees. Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees in Pisces. If it be you have Chiron in those Pisces degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Pisceans will likely think they do deserve more and wonderful, and they with their intuition make superlative life and business partners!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 8 Capricorn now through March 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Pisces to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point, but Pisces intuitively wanders. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Pisces, all water, flows where there is the greatest need. Sag can lead and teach, Pisces quietly encourages and inspires from behind the scenes or on stage with the sounds of the angels of heaven! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Pisces can put it on film. The legacy is bestowed.

29 year Saturn Returns can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

21 to 29 degree Sagittarians will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that is doable, one step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Pisces can be very helpful, sensing the way, recognizing the thresholds. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Pisces understands fate, dharma – the work of the Soul. Archaeological antiquities call our Soul to remember who we were and the great efforts made to celebrate and commemorate accomplishments that stood the test of time. We are reminded to carry on that beauty, be immortal. Though Pisces is total osmosis, it can also long for a magical water bowl to live in, to define it, to be able to look up at the stars on a clear dark night.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 8 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor.

Jupiter is now in Libra. Oct 10 it travels into Scorpio, goes up to 23 degrees March 2018.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Pisces observes, often wanting a quieter venue, wanders out into the garden to sit by the pond. A misty day suits them. They can dream and let thoughts coalesce, rise to consciousness. Libra draws them out of themselves and Jupiter, if clever, introduces them to the gift of other Souls that lead what Pisces believes in. The musician, artist, seagoer, temple sitter, water athlete. Jupiter assures them both that through some of these connections we can change the world. Libra keeps it from getting too boisterous and protects Pisces from being overwhelmed. Pisces reaches back, so gently you have to watch for it, to thank, and let Jupiter know their response may be gentle, but very caring and it means a lot to them. Jupiter in Libra doesn’t need to work so hard to make an impression…

Jupiter in Scorpio is easier for Pisces, they are both water signs. They could collude or they could collaborate! Scorp likes its secrets and confidentialities; Pisces just likes quiet at times. But Jupiter likes abundance and Scorpio is the corporate ticket! He sees that Pisces could use a little more money and Jupiter wants education, so funds the amazing Pisces dream. Just like that, they are in business, much to Pisces’ surprise! What?! Aw, heck, and it’s fun! It was getting a little boring anyway. So they travel a bit, get ideas, talk with the accountant. Jupiter in Scorpio can manage things adroitly, isn’t afraid, and is tireless. What a lucky adventure! Another plus is Pisces may be healed of things only a blunt Jupiter could tell them about, and Scorpio is no stranger to cleaning up messes, LOL!

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans! Keep the Lights ON!


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

Pisces Dreams, Visions, Miracles!

Pisces! An average day.... Geometry of the Soul by Andrew Ostraovsky

An average Pisces day….   Geometry of the Soul by Graphic Designer Andrew Ostrovsky

Immortal unity. Life after life the Soul coalesces our experiences, continues its expression and searches the far reaches of all Being. Fusion incarnate. Micro to magnificent. All and nothing at all. Primordial, aboriginal. Destiny beyond mere belief. Conception far beyond intelligence.

Pisces belongs to all and belongs to none. They may wander off to be where they are needed. They may need quiet, a free zone to contemplate, recenter at a new level. They belong to all because they feel every nuance, how we are all connected, or not. They are chameleons and shapeshifters, trying on many forms. Those sad eyes they sometimes have are the expression of their deep seated compassion. They see.

As children they need safe space. Good or bad, they take it in, become it. Give them light, clean beauty, gentle music, a kind environment that encourages their extra perceptions. Later that ability will be their creative gifts – the film, surreal designs, a symphony of sounds, the merging of a magical range of talents.

8-5 is not their schedule. Their capacity is greater than being a bird in a cage, a jewel cut and put in a setting. Their ocean of Spirit flows with the tides, sun swept or with the Moon and stars! There are times to rest and float anywhere to nowhere, or take off when the surf’s up!

Health can be fragile, or strong like the mystical whales! It can be leaping like a dolphin, or dreaming in hospital, tended by other Pisceans who understand your reason for being there. Might have been them. Dancers take special care of their feet. The right shoes are important! Piscean health is as much physical as in their minds and spirit. Fear, boredom, continual verbal abuse, gloomy surroundings wear them down. Escaping can take many forms, but it too is dispiriting. Right work is life saving. It must be work that means something, saves the world and helps each other.

Love scintillates like a sparking sea in a light breeze! It is as live as it can be imagined. It can be so real, intricate, so finely fitted you become One with the other. It can cross the aeons, lifetime after lifetime. Across continents each knows what the other is doing! We can love because we care for all Beings. Love can be pure Grace.

Miracles for a Pisces are more a verb than a noun. They are like breathing, innate. They are something you do and happens all around you naturally. You are often in the right place at the right time to meet someone special. Spontaneous healing is expected. Knowing who’s calling, you open the door to find them poised to ring the doorbell. You wonder how someone is you haven’t seen in a long time and they cross your path that day or quite soon. You could write those off to coincidence, but then there are the things that happen that the best authorities claim can’t be done, yet they happen to you more than odds against chance. You could say it is just telepathy, but then that’s not supposed to happen either, but it does.

Many a young Piscean gets talked out of these experiences, they are explained into oblivion by less endowed people, people who love them. But down the road of their life, they get stronger in their own Being. It takes time, but they learn to trust their precious impressions. At first it is fleeting, but over time, it’s more than a glimpse, they get it! Those impressions save them time, they know the truth, can be immediately helpful at crucial times. It makes all the difference in the world. They don’t always know where they are going, but they know they need to get there! The ultimate trust.

You are in good company as a Pisces. The magician Albert Einstein, the mad and alluring Elizabeth Taylor, versatile Glenn Close, innumerable excellent actors and actresses, wild Sir Elton John, consummate artist Michelangelo, psychic Edgar Cayce, iconoclast Jack Kerouac, modern man Steve Jobs. Classic Pisces quotes:

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
— Albert Einstein

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.”
— Edgar Cayce (four planets in Pisces – Sun, Venus, Saturn, Mercury!)

New Moon!   Four Planets in Pisces, Mercury Cardinal T Square, Venus!

New Moon!  Four Planets in Pisces, Mercury Cardinal T Square, Venus!

First New Moon of 2017 is Friday January 27, 4:07 PM Pacific at 8 Aquarius 15!

milky-way-over-arecibo-puerto-rico-by-ferdinand-arroyo

View larger  Milky Way over Arecibo, Puerto Rico by Ferdinand Arroyo. From its completion in 1963 until July 2016 Arecibo Observatory’s 1,000-foot (305-meter) radio telescope was the world’s largest single-aperture telescope.

Aquarius is a fantastic sign! Aquarians have amazing minds, from scrambled to genius, bodies unlike no other, have been to the wildest places, have friends beyond your ken. With both the Moon and Sun in the same place at the same moment it’s like high wires sizzling! Don’t expect the usual blather or time to stand still. It’s like twins with their own language, only these Beings are tuned in to the Galactic Center, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! If your chart has factors at or very close to 8 degrees, you will be on the Grid with them and catch some of the Universal News! New Moons end one cycle, begin another. Aquarius makes it snappy!

The semi sextile with Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, will catch rare bits of script that will cast a spell over passages, some becoming illuminated like a lightning bolt, alive to the point of making you think you will leave your body! Other parts will be placed in the denial category to be sifted later by the subconscious into tolerable proportions. Insights and visions of the semi sextile, and the three other planets in Pisces, will be as vivid dreams that seem so real you don’t believe they didn’t happen, and when they do, you WILL remember!

Venus in Pisces

The preceding Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces of Dec 31 feathers out its new ideas about healing, spreads the word among colleagues and contacts, polishes the local artifacts, draws out beauty and charity. They are steadily in their inconjunct until they do it again exact on Valentine’s Day! Venus just went by Chiron in her gypsy veils, gave Chiron a sweet kiss. Been awhile since someone noticed him that way. So he is warmed and charmed, gave her a gift. She told Jupiter about it and he, in her sign Libra, thinks the information can be taught, maybe published!

As she squares Saturn, she makes him remember his square with Chiron Dec 28, what sorrows that may have brought, perhaps bittersweet breakthroughs too that still may need some repairs and integration. Venus may have doubts, moments of hesitation, need to comfort or lend a hand. She assures him there are dear Soulmates out there and his time will come. He assesses how well she is doing, reminds her of the long term goals and how important they are. She straightens, yet we know she will do it her way in Pisces, as she must. She is even more a believer in Pisces, but good old Saturn is the task master and he knows being on time can make or break our progress. We know he is right, so we get back on course with renewed focus.

Venus is then on her way to bless Mars in Pisces, but he quickly changes into his own sign Aries! He changes the same day as the New Moon, at 9:39 PM Pacific! The next day is Chinese New Year, the year of the Red Fire Rooster! How apropo that Mars, the red fire planet, is in Aries, the red sign, right on time for that day! He leaves Venus behind while she begins to slow to retrograde, so the connection isn’t made. They may converse about Piscean matters, but he has to carry her wishes on without her. Likely he will because she asked him so kindly and in Aries he takes action! He is, after all, the Champion, the Hero!

Jupiter sextile Saturn in Sagittarius has been and is still quite close, but Jupiter is backing away, stilling to retrograde Feb 5. So they discuss the projects, but for the time being Saturn will need to carry the building forward while Jupiter thinks things over in Libra. Jupiter will think on who does which work best, proportions – how much of this and that, beauty versus necessity. They will come back together, make their exact connection, complete their project Aug 27.

Cardinal T Square! Mercury potently conjunct Pluto, Square Uranus and Jupiter! Cardinal signs gets things started! Mercury is very earthly logical, practical in Capricorn, and looks at the extremes with Pluto. From birth to death, poverty to billionaires, cheating to ’til death do us part, impotent to charismatic! Uranus in Aries lights the Spirit afire, may have burnout, leave outgrown friends behind only to find ones with ideas far ahead of their times. It may be alone or working on an international project that uses every minute fraction of their mental physics, consumed with creation! All this calls Jupiter in Libra to record the story, recode it for the lay person. Jupiter is not afraid of far reaching effects, expands the territory with alacrity! It requires Jupiter’s ability to grasp the magnitude of the perceptions then balance them cleverly in Libra so there is a stunning play of wholeness achieved! The Aquarian overtone adds the innate need for it to work as above, so below, as in nature, air over Earth.

Amongst all the unpredictable Aquarius New Moon, Jupiter loving switching sides in Libra, Venus sashaying about, all that mutable morphing Pisces, and Mercury stirring the Pluto point of the cardinal get-things-started brew, know that you don’t know! It may take months to decipher what happened! It will be computers and beyond computers. It will be the most pristine data but put together in a way that defies what most people think and will even make Aquarians wonder!

It is a perfect first New Moon for 2017! Earth, Science, and Heavenly Magic!

Full Snow Moon! LUNAR ECLIPSE!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle, Chiron Yod, Two Midpoints!

Friday February 10, 4:33 PM Pacific at 22 Leo 28

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

A big eclipsed Moon setting in the early morning hours of December 10, 2011. The Indian Peaks are a series of peaks on the continental divide near Boulder, Colorado. By amazing photographer Patrick Cullis

The First Eclipse of 2017 has a complex bouquet, is laden with opportunities!

This is a rare total Penumbral Eclipse! The Moon moves through the faint, outer part of the Earth’s shadow. It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely, at the time, for deep penumbral shading on the north half of the lunar disk! The apparent diameter of this Moon is larger than average since the eclipse occurs 4.4 days after perigee (nearest Earth).

It is still a line up, Sun, Earth, Moon. Aquarius Sun will shine on the part of Earth facing the Sun, infusing his Light. In light wave fashion, Sun moves the molecules, Earth transmits and filters this energy to Mother Moon waiting in the Shadow. Moon in Leo is receptive, absorbent, generously cradling, nurturing. She returns her own Light of the heart, delicately mingling, intertwining like DNA flowing both directions, with the incoming Light, through Earth, back to Sun, giving her support, showing how much we care. She has a lot of Love to give.

Full Moon at 22 degrees is most closely tied with Chiron at 22 Pisces. Sun semi sextiles its neighbor. Moon is inconjunct, an aspect of peripheral awareness and adjustment. What might have started as a nuisance, a sense of being misaligned, becomes an adjunct factor that invites and enriches. It is less directly involved, so has less bias. It could even become the next branch, or the new main direction! Moon is a nurturer and senses Chiron’s needs though in Pisces they can seem more whimsical than real. If there are debilitating addictions, it is more serious. Moon is experienced and sees the nuances of value, and in Leo is uplifting. Moon in Leo may always be concerned to do its best, be on. Chiron sees any weaknesses and subtly advises reasonable moderation and self care. Chiron may be able to do some oblique healing from that off center angle.

Chiron YOD! With Chiron’s inconjunct Moon, it is also inconjunct Jupiter, a more long term aspect, forming a ‘Y’! The inconjunct with Jupiter is strong, because as Chiron moves forward into it, Jupiter is retrograding back to meet it! Their first exact aspect was Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. It is holding now closely until it makes the second exact aspect on Valentine’s Day! The adjustment this inconjunct requires is a fine tuning of our beliefs, acknowledging healing needed, updating how we teach and speak, our life work and relationship choices. Those are big topics. One alone would be big, but now they are unifying as a whole! Jupiter wants you to look further ahead, to add good will, trust you will do ok, to connect you higher up the food chain in a good way. Allow that!

Chiron is at the semi sextile MIDPOINT between Sun and Uranus. The amazing astronomical geometry about the Chiron/Uranus combination is that it started Nov 2008 and continues through Sep 2021, a total of THIRTEEN years!  See more The Sun of this Eclipse lights it right up! Sun semisextiles Chiron, sextiles Uranus, the Aquarian planet! Chiron watches, perhaps silently, in Pisces, noticing the beauty of their bringing the masses to a new level of awakening, how our differences are our contributions. New songs are written in a flash, an acceptable unique style arises! A penumbral Eclipse is a subtle wellspring. Sun/Uranus will use blatant excitement and wild word cues that spark curiosity that had lain dormant but is now eager! Chiron may whisper a caution here or there, or lean forward when the cues are perfectly unzipped!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

Only one point is missing, the Gemini position, to make a Grand Sextile! See all those connected green lines in the chart?! Moon bases a Grand FIRE Trine KITE pattern!

The Mystic Rectangle is composed of two parallel trines, Moon trine Uranus and Sun trine Jupiter! The Rectangle is completed by sextiles, Moon sextile Jupiter, and Sun sextile Uranus! SO many lucky aspects! Read on….

The Grand trine Kite is the Moon, Saturn, Uranus Grand trine with the Sun midpoint between Saturn and Uranus is the KITE!

  • Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius, a Mother to Father Time arrangement. There is harmony with the softness of women and the sweetness of children. Saturn is the Father, securing shelter, working for a long good life. Leo and Sagittarius are both teachers, so educational choices are blessed. Leo is a creator sign, of expression like performance, and through color and lighting. Saturn in Sagittarius so wants their project to excel, have a long life, contribute meaningfully. Their collaboration potential is exceptional.
  • Moon trines Uranus in Aries, the planet of friendship, awareness, awakening, international community! Moon is your neighborhood, local community. Uranus is friends and world community! Moon is commodities of daily living, Uranus is the inventor that makes daily life more comfortable and fun. Moon has the memory banks of the matriarchy, history, an intuition that can’t be beat! Uranus is the holder of a hub of insights of future possibilities. Together there is a blessed alliance, rich progress!
  • Saturn trine Uranus is a long term aspect, first happened Christmas Eve, Dec 24. It will retrograde soon and return to the trine, but not until May 18. It is within 4 degrees now, still mulling over how it will fold good changes into working living, how to repair any damages or difficulties that change has brought. Saturn is persistent, wants to put things to good use. Though it is moving away for the time being, that doesn’t mean it is giving up, not coming back. In Sagittarius it will have a good look about and discover more successful ways of making changes that bring better living, to broaden our range of possibilities.
  • Sun in Aquarius is sextile MIDPOINT right between Saturn and Uranus making the KITE pattern! Saturn was the old ruler of Aquarius, Uranus is the current ruler of Aquarius! Earthy Saturn rules ancient things, archaeology, while airy Uranus rules inventions, planes, computers, the Internet! Times are bound by Saturnian Earth laws that will always be, by Karma and Dharma, what we have done and our mission each life. Uranus explores the outer reaches, keeps calling us forward in evolution, offers new ways to align disparate beliefs, awakens whole groups of people to their potentials! The Sun, Leo’s planet, puts warmth in this process, lights the way with love and heart that gives us the courage to step up! Strong friendships and community and world networks will figure in prominently.

Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries knits this lucky pattern even further! Jupiter offers the blessings of connections both local and foreign, education, abundance possibly through grants and scholarships. Jupiter trine Sun, is a hella lucky, fame & fortune aspect! It gives an exemplary sense of personal confidence and trustworthiness, far reaching vision, enjoyable potential. Jupiter sextile Moon is another lucky prosperous aspect! Moon intuitively knows cycles, excellent for stock trades and investments. Moon gives Mother love, is strong and protective, while Jupiter supports relationships with peoples of different cultures, economic standing, faiths, ages.

Saturn sextiles Sun and trines Moon! Saturn is a grounding planet though now in Sagittarius is its more flexible in its demands. It may be more opinionated, but if a better way is demonstrated, it will make the change. Sun in Aquarius wants to be free and is easily bored, but Saturn in Sag can be wise enough to favorably gain their attention and contribute to the Sun’s research and international work. Saturn is at times a little old fashioned and stuffy and that is something Aquarius will never be! Saturn has to come up to speed in modern terms sometimes so things can progress in context of our current times. Yep, ok, understand, will do. See Moon trines Saturn above.

Another long term aspect is Saturn square Chiron. This one was exact the first time Dec 28. For some it brought sorrows and losses of all kinds depending on how it was with their personal charts. We lost Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and William Christopher in that period. The next exact aspect is April 30, and the last Nov 2. Saturn are things we are held responsible for, in Sagittarius it has to do with faith, learning, promoting, being ethical, truth without exaggeration or omits. Chiron in Pisces can be fragile or a powerful believer with profound visions. Saturn is a hard worker and will expect them to measure up, find ways to get the job done. Chiron invites Saturn to let go of chronic matters, rigid boundaries, harsh expectations. Some things are just bigger than we are and we must let go and grow with them, time changes the parameters. Sometimes a gentle approach with encouragement tips the scales.

Jupiter sextiles Saturn in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius! Jupiter is still close though retrograding away. They have been together for months, so the considerations their combination brings is gradually seeping into our consciousness. It’s a working arrangement fueled by legal and amazing design advice, plus Saturn’s expertise at building structures that suit the environment. Work is a pleasure, education pays off, travel is a welcome component!

Apart from all the aspect network above, Mercury, also in Aquarius, is sextile Venus in Aries at the same degree, and Mars in its own sign Aries! This is a combination of brilliant intelligence! Mercury with Venus is the blessing of kind words, words that show love, are spoken like poetry, give appreciation! Aquarius and Mars and Aries are looking for freedom and independence. They can act potently alone, but paradoxically once they are free enough, mature in their Spirits, they are are free to choose to work together and in groups when it makes sense. There is that phrase, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4, so it doesn’t make the conjunction with Mars. She’s close enough to give Mars the current information, the inspiration of her gratitude! He will fight in her behalf, loves being the instigator, first one there, the fearless chief! He rises to challenge with super vitality!

Though Full Moons are oppositions, Moon opposite Sun, this one is laced with favorable connections. And if we think of planets opposite each other that doesn’t have to mean they are against each other. Think incorporation, collaboration! Each has their gift to give. In this case, Leo is the sign of the heart of Light, lovers! Valentine’s Day is the Aquarius holiday! Aquarius is the philanthropist, distributes wealth, has planet wide connections and projects for people, initiates environmental healing and maintenance. It is brotherly love, just a different dimension of the possibility of love in its wholeness!

With all my praises of these aspects, all those positive blue and green lines in the chart, they won’t be good for everyone, or will have no effect at all. They will only be good for those whose charts they activate in a good way. Please see your astrologer to find how they are situated per your personal chart. Also, the time of day events are initiated makes a huge difference and those times of day are not the same for every person. Please. See your astrologer.

That said, I wish you great success!

Overview of 2017 Planetary Backdrop 

2017 opens with three outer planets in Cardinal signs: Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Libra, his opposite, invites, greets and makes introductions. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. Together, we are inspired, form lasting unions. Saturn and Neptune remain in Mutable signs Sagittarius and Pisces. Flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems will change, be more accommodating, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Saturn and Neptune, Dharma and Spirit, blend and bind us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone.

The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! See more

The six aspects that started Oct 23, 2016, repeat twice and continue through Nov 11, 2017. The challenging aspects run through Nov 2. Of 14 2017 aspects, 4 are considered favorable. The aspects span from 11 degrees to 27 degrees, so likely all of us will be activated one time or another. Jupiter, the fastest of the outer planets, makes 10 of these 14 aspects; Saturn makes the other 4. Continue to make sustainable living choices. Be ready and flexible for lots of changes.

Many are waiting, getting poised for the phenomenal 2018 sweep of positive aspects! There are way fewer aspects! It has 6 favorable, only 1 difficult at the end of the year. Jupiter is making ALL the aspects! There are a LOT of sign changes, FIVE! That will more than stir the brew! Don’t expect things to be settled, but the changes bode well, new times! Live closely now so you are free to invest in 2018.

Sign Changes

Sign changes set the tone of and standards for the year. The first sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Libra establishes fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be deepened. Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to make a significant Capricorn achievement.

For most of the year, until October, Jupiter and Saturn are in Libra and Sagittarius, outgoing and curious. Then Jupiter goes into Scorpio and it can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time. After we get used to this change of venue, Saturn finally makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter and Saturn change Signs. Jupiter starts in Libra. See Jupiter into LIBRA! Libras work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! October 10, Jupiter enters Scorpio and goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, funding, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality, some relationships will be left behind, others renewed and rededicated.

Jupiter makes 4 aspects, and Saturn makes 2 aspects, that started late 2016, open 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set is Jupiter opposition Uranus that finishes the Jupiter set Sep 27. The Saturn pair finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!  Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus is the first aspect of a year long series of 2017-18 positive aspects beginning Nov 11! Uranus is the planet of Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. We can be the different specialist person we were born to be! Conversely, sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, the combination is another way of saying Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice Capricorn builds strong because it knows just how much weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.


A look at 2017 Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

2017 opens the day after the Dec 31, 2016 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron. They will stay close until the second exact aspect Feb 4 2017. The 2016 Oct to Dec Jupiter set – inconjunct Neptune, square Pluto, opposite Uranus and inconjunct Chiron – will reverse through these 4 aspects through mid May holding the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune closely until July 4! It finishes the set entirely wildly Sep 27 opposite Uranus! The retrograde/direct turning points, adjustment making inconjuncts with Chiron and Neptune, are important because of the duration they are held and that they are turning points. Major aspect Jupiter opposite Uranus is super charged, expect bold changes! Jupiter square Pluto was the prominent Presidential Election aspect and holds the keys to the financial kingdom!

Jupiter square Pluto and opposition Uranus, makes a framework for several provocative Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross as Moon, Sun, Mercury or Venus move through Aries. The Feb 26th 22 degree Mars exact conjunction Uranus, plus they opposite Jupiter should be spectacular to say the least! Make sure your insurance is up to date and comprehensive, covers fire/heat and electronics/electricity – wiring, explosions. Earlier in the day of the April 10 Aries/Libra FULL MOON, the Moon and Sun straddle the Jupiter opposition Uranus axis! Extraordinary proportions and options!

Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Careers and businesses will be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Times change. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The May 18 second and Nov 11 last trine to Uranus will occur at the degree of the Galactic Center! The square and trines were only 4 days apart, finishing aspects at Christmas 2016, and make their third and last aspects quite closely again Nov 2 and 11, 2017. That Nov 11 aspect launches a year of uninterrupted classically favorable aspects!

Uranus and Chiron will be aspected 4 times each. Healing change. Businesses will be called to be more inclusive of all beings, broadened by their new connections.

The last aspect of 2017 is Jupiter trine Neptune Dec 2! Let the magical journey begin! Saturn changes signs, into it’s own sober and mighty productive sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! Some say Solstice is the true New Year.

Uranus square Pluto is in its LAST 5 degree period of that square! It is in a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind.
 
In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! The exact 2017 dates are July 29 and Dec 28.

Be well, well loved, may you prosper, and all your good works be blessed….

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries - World Friendships!

Unique friendships across the world…

4.19.17 Notes: These four aspects closed 2016, repeat two more times, are now the main aspects of 2017. They finish Nov 11, 2017. Eleven, eleven! Currently the closest aspect in progress is the April 30 Saturn square Chiron. See #3 below. Next is Saturn trine Uranus May 18, at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER! See #1 below please. For its May 17 companion aspect see Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. These aspects are all strongly tied with the Taurus time New & Full Moons.

x
2016 opened with a second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. Jupiter inconjuncted Uranus two times. Jupiter in LIBRA reverses the aspects, opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! It started opposite the first of 3 times the day after Christmas. Holiday differences of opinions, broad exchanges of information were very likely. 2015, 16, 17 have been and will be linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. See more! In addition, SATURN starts aspecting these two planets as well, Christmas Eve and on the Dec 28 NEW MOON.

These aspects are part of what I’m calling the Holiday Four at the end of 2016! Saturn and Jupiter are alternating. The first two aspects are to Uranus, the second two are to Chiron. All four aspects are different, strongly activating factors in our charts from 18 to 23 degrees.

  1. Christmas Eve, Dec 24 Saturn trine Uranus, 20 degrees. May 18, 2017 retrograde at 26 Sagittarius. Third and last Nov 11 at 25 Sag! Saturn goes into Capricorn Sep 2017. Uranus goes into Taurus May 2018. Saturn retrogrades back to an almost exact trine Uranus. Uranus goes into Gemini eight years later, April 2026. Saturn catches up to make the conjunction June of 2032! It will be 16 years before we have another exact aspect of these two.
  2. Dec 26 Jupiter opposition Uranus, 20 degrees. Mar 2, 2017 at 22 Libra. Last Sep 27 at 27 Libra.
  3. Dec 28 Saturn square Chiron, 21 degrees. NEW MOON 10:53 PM Pacific. Jupiter sextile Saturn closest Dec 28/29. April 30, 2017 second Saturn square Chiron 27 Sag. Third and last Nov 2 at 24 Sag.
  4. Dec 31, last day of the year, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, 21 degrees. The year finishes with aspects to Chiron. Second inconjunct was Feb 14, 2017 at 23 Libra.. Last is Sep 23 at 26 Libra.

1. Saturn and Uranus rule neighboring signs earthy conservative Capricorn, and far, far out electric air sign Aquarius! Short and tall! Saturn is the lawmaker, Aquarius the lawbreaker! Saturn says if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Aquarius takes the clock apart and puts it back together, figuring out a new way to make it better. Saturn, the builder scientist, is so steady, determined. Uranus is infinitely unpredictable, thinks out of the box, researches and invents! Saturn puts up the framing, Uranus installs the electrical system. A trine is usually a harmonious link, so businessman Saturn and banker/bartender Uranus do find common ground – buy the bar or bank, right?! And they can be surprisingly great friends! Off to the patent office, then into production! Futurist Uranus, ahead of his times, chats it up with Saturn in farseeing Sagittarius. Together they get insight how to make things work for current everyday use. Saturn happily follows right along.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries brings a calming, a reasonable sense of responsibility, yet is still spunky in fire signs! Sag and Aries love their independence, so Saturn ordains and protects the function of much needed fast getaways to restore the spirit. There is more leeway with working hours, less hovering to see things get done ‘properly,’ more creativity encouraged! Working with friends is super, same general goals, things get done quickly. Uranus in Aries does split second mid air research that saves time, points amazing directions, is invaluable in making this project stand out above others of the past! Flying consultants in, brainstorming, making new working friendships and alliances is just fun! Have your gifts ready! The company party will be in good taste and spectacular with the computerized light show! Don’t forget to invite your Father’s friend and take lots of px for Facebook!

The May 18 second/retrograde trine Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy, the Sun of our Sun! It is considered to be a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Uranus was the God of the Heavens, rules the stars, in other words, is our galactic planet! Saturn, the planet of reality, simply makes the channel clear for clean transmission and reception!

The last trine with Uranus, Nov 11, eleven eleven seventeen, is the first of the amazing continuous positive string of aspects late 2017 through Nov 1 2018! Do it well; get a good start!

2. Jupiter in social Libra livens up in opposition with Uranus in Aries in the dark of winter. There are choices to be made, who to hang with, go together or stay out of it, independent. There may be separations from friends, and I don’t just mean holiday travels. Letting go has its merits. Meeting new potential partners, business and pleasure, is likely. Negotiating across the table can be done with regard, giving equality, accepting the ways of others, integrating the gifts all bring.

Jupiter opposite Uranus can bring a shocking or super exciting event. Be cautious about flights. Get the insurance, choose an airline with high safety standards and a good track record. Be careful in general. Don’t stray from your group. World events often happen a week or so preceding the date, Dec 26, up to 2 or 3 days following. As much as New Moons are thought to be quiet, they can be a time of intense focus. even loneliness. If leaving your holiday family gathering, you may not be as alert as you think things over, miss them. Keep tabs on your surroundings and the people with you.

This is a significant aspect because it emphasizes matters of the challenging Uranus square Pluto. It is a reminder of happenings since 2010 that remain with us, many taking years to work through. That square returns to a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind. During that time Jupiter also squares Pluto. That configuration will bring actively challenging Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. March 7, 22-23 and 28 (NEW MOON Mar 27) will be particularly potent as Jupiter closes on its second square with Pluto exact March 30 at 19 Libra. See more

3. WARNING. Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend holiday marriages this year 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 do so much better? Classically three of the Holiday Four aspects are difficult and none are traditional marriage aspects. Though the Holiday Four are activating 18 to 22 degrees, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, they are still 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.

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 holiday 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. Holidays are often a tough time. 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. Leave 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.

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 donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

4. Jupiter inconjunct Chiron spreads the healing. 

Those of you trained that inconjuncts are bad, have only half the info! For many years I just about shivered when I saw them coming. Divorce was likely because partners were distracted, sidetracked – read stepped out. Uncomfortable things were avoided/ignored, daily things untended added up, causing more stress. Debt was often as finances were neglected, divorce caused extra expenses to both parties. Death was even part of the scenario. People just up and left the planet, lost contact, often unexpectedly estranged, though if you looked way back, you could have seen the signs. In many ways, it all seemed out of our control. Astrologers didn’t use the 150 degree aspect very much when I first started astrology, thinking it was hard to see in a chart, and to this day, it isn’t listed in many astrological calendars, even the Jim Maynard calendars! The other word for it was even weird, quincunx. Time to turn the tables.

Here’s the other half. Rather than bungling through or not at all, be proactive. It’s there, an open link, use it! Jupiter is adept at sizing up potential, eager to check out the sidelines. Detours are often more interesting than the daily ride. With Jupiter in Libra there surely needs to be some reassessments over there! Proactively offer your peacekeeping legal services, coaching expertise, the grace of your ideas and insights. Talk about what you see – both sides, leave no stone, weak spot, unturned. Chiron was a wise Centaur, so ask your questions, commiserate and consolidate! Put ignorance behind you. Whether you go back to the main road, or keep on going on this one, your knowledge is enhanced, good to spread it out as far and wide as possible! Your network expands into a whole new quadrant! You are not alone on this quest. Others will be traveling it as well and you can share what you reap at the crossroads.

[5.] In addition to the above four aspects, there is an almost, very, very close Jupiter sextile Saturn riding along with them. Jupiter and Saturn come closest Dec 28 (Capricorn New MOON) and 29! This, a positive aspect, may also bring up sadness, but deals well with it. See more

These Holiday Four are the first of three aspects each. They end 2016, and are active two more times each in 2017 also. Do your best to do them well. Get them off to a good start; the best results are yet to come!

May your New Year be well blessed.
