Full Harvest Moon!

Monday September 24 at 7:52 PM Pacific, 2 Aries/Libra 0

Early degrees emphasis, TWO T Squares, Chiron Aries back to Pisces!

Libra Aries 2018 Full Harvest Moon Sunshine Skyway Bridge Tampa Bay FL

Full Harvest Moon shining over Tampa Bay’s 4.1 miles long Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Lovely image by award-winning freelance photographer Jim Sykes. 

Bridges are symbolic of Libra’s purpose, the connections of opposites. Full Moons are the same, specific to the link between Mother Moon and Father Sun. Libra’s Fall Equinox season change 2 days ago is the same. Libra links the fall quarter of the year, and all situations involving from summer, ‘as above,’ to ‘so below’ as we go into the shorter days, longer nights of the darker deeper time of year. Sometimes only Spirit is our escort; other times we go arm in arm, equals meeting the inner workings of our beings. One way or another, we all go. It’s a collective experience we have each year. Some have initial fears of the dark. In time confidence is gained, we enjoy this mysterious dimension, become to love its qualities. In the daytime we are headed toward intense and exhilarating sports in the windblown crisp clear-your-head cooler air!

Only 12 days ago we had the Jupiter sextile Pluto, the far, far from the Sun planet of dark! Jupiter is known for seeing the bright side of things and since Pluto is known for his powerful funds, Jupiter made some lucky deals and raised generous funds for benevolent projects and causes! 2 days ago the Sun went into Libra. Not only did we change seasons, but signs as well! Less Virgo labor now, more social connections, emphasis on collaboration. What was one person’s job has now become an active team of contributors! The result is more whole, more sophisticated, much more than the original intention!These and the Full Moon are all while Chiron is trying on it’s new speed in Aries, pushing for new beginnings, testing new ways of healing, new arrangements in partnerships and doing business!

Tomorrow, Sep 25, Chiron returns to Pisces for a reminder of why we are doing these new things, why they are required next. We go back for another look at where we have failed, the consequences. We are touched with compassion for the suffering of all manner of addictions – food, drugs, to relationships, even at times our so called ‘devotion’ to a spiritual Path. We will get deeper into true spiritual bonds that hold us dear to sacred places and principles we believe in. The Full Moon opens the gates between us, each other and different dimensions. Step back that we may go more powerfully forward later. Maybe we left someone behind, need to say the farewell that wasn’t possible before, or they are ready now and we collect them. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron goes forward into Aries for the next 9 years. At that point it will be 51 years before it gets back into Pisces again. Really seek Chiron’s meaning while it is in Pisces. This is it.

LIBRA & ARIES

While the Libra Sun is shining, Mother Moon is traveling opposite in fiery Aries. She, in all her feminine glory, is standing strongly, leading the way! She feels passionate about independence, woman power, taking the steps that make a difference for our children, our family, the work we do daily because that’s life, the skills we take forward to the next level. She doesn’t hesitate if someone is in trouble or a fire needs putting out! She’s 100% intuitive, swift and to the point!

Libra Sun doesn’t hesitate to introduce himself. He might like to help you, or live the advantage of your expertise. He would like to get to know you and connect you further to the right people and places. He likes to equalize situations, understand the merits of every person involved. Sun considers all the facets at present, the possibilities. There are times when no conclusion is possible. It’s either too late or too early. Compared with Aries, he is reminded there are times you simply must take some action, you’ll never please everyone. Yet he also knows there really are times to wait it out, poised. Aries learns there are times to let it go for now. They can really help each other. We’re making very fine jewelry here. Sometimes you turn up the heat; other times you turn it down and let things gel.

TEN factors make very CLOSE ASPECTS in the Full Moon Chart!

From zero to 8 degrees! 
0 Chiron Retrograde
1 Moon, Uranus, Lilith
2 Sun, Saturn
3 Mars
4 Moon’s North Node always retrograde in general motion
5 Mercury
8 Venus

CARDINAL T Square

Moon is with Chiron kickin’ up the dust in Aries. Let’s get this healing gig on the road! People need it NOW! Moon and Chiron are semisextile Uranus in Taurus, itchy to get going, make changes, but they are blocked by the square with Father Time Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He’s asking for papers and proof, tests, rules & regs. Moon and Chiron would love to just push him aside, and might do, but there would be consequences that might make a longer delay later. Sigh. Uranus in Taurus, is close in trine with Saturn, has been gently nudging him, so a shift is soon. Saturn slows us down just enough to have the time we need to think more clearly and do it even better after all!

Sun and Mercury have been running into the Saturn bricks too! Saturn thinks of Libra as ‘fluffy,’ not serious enough to be considered. Yet, Libra has Saturn’s eye, since those goods sell better when they are Libra finessed and attractive too, bringing more sales. Saturn is the T point man, so they all have to get his approval before it’s a go. Once they do, Mercury is already ahead! The evening before he trined, consulted with Mars, who is always on the leading edge, and has been excited, expecting things to pop! Mercury has the word, and soon as, is hoofing it outta here to give the good news, gather the local troops! Good chance you signed some papers in the last six days.

Saturn is no dummy! He can just feel all the energy around him and knows better than to over delay and miss the magic moments. He can think pretty fast on his feet when a lot is at stake. Cardinal signs like action, and this scenario just can’t be stopped for long!

Moon and Chiron are sextile Lilith and Mars in Aquarius, the sign of change! Again, when Saturn’s requirements are satisfied, Mars and Lilith will offer an entire group of independent women and leaders in behalf of our efforts! This combo can sweep us ALL off our feet! Hang on!

And Moon and Chiron trine the Moon’s North node, sweetly links the Cardinal squares with the Fixed squares! Moon never lets sleeping dogs lie, and quite more so in Aries! She and Chiron are acting like power boosters. Trine her own North Node bodes well for the new beginnings she hopes for. The North Node swings the balance to equalize the South Node in Aquarius, her Past. In Leo it’s less for Aquarian friends and collaborators; it’s more for what’s in your own heart’s light now.

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

Lilith, woman of power, in Aquarius, the changemaker sign, is at the root at 1 degree! She squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. She won’t be able to move him entirely, because he, though new in Taurus, his new job is to test for organic truth and anchor that in Taurus. What we had always wanted is now couched in new times, so it has to prove itself in current tense. Uranus is square the fixed sign Moon’s Nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars and Lilith are at the Aquarian South Node, powers of the Past called upon, in this case for chaos! Yet they have a rather odd resonance of invincibility. They want change, and it WILL happen! Though Mars and Lilith are independents, when they call the other independents together they are a force to be reckoned with. The Nodes, in turn, square Venus in Scorpio, but they are always retrograde and are moving away from her. Venus squared Mars way back on the 8th and they didn’t agree. Now she has moved past him. Mercury will make a semisextile with Venus, but it’s not a major aspect. Venus may have memories, but is not likely much interested any more. By numbers we have a grand square. By active planetary motion we really have another T Square. 

Fixed signs are meant to stabilize, anchor, focus and keep our attention on what’s at hand. But two of these signs Aquarius and Scorpio want significant change. Aquarius wants to mend planetary ways, Scorpio wants to transform you body and Soul so you can do the job AQ wants!

Uranus is at the point of the fixed T; Saturn is the point of the Cardinal T! Saturn is the venerable traditional conservative in charge, while Uranus is leading edge technology, often ahead of its times, the Futurist, Rebel with many causes! Interesting that Saturn is leading the Cardinal signs that want action now, yet he is a perfect leader to keep them all corralled so they don’t make mistakes and waste time! Ironically, Uranus, the ChangeMaker, is in charge of the fixed signs that are meant to stabilize us!

The rest of the planets….

Jupiter and Pluto finished their last sextile the 12th. So much potential healing ability was given to be used during these further planetary transitions. See more

Essentially, Venus, and Neptune in his own sign Pisces, stand alone. Neptune is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time. Venus will NOT trine Neptune until Winter Solstice, Dec 21! She retrogrades at 10 Scorpio 50 on Oct 5, already slowing way down to make the Rx station. She stands still for many days at that turn.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and getting close to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

This Harvest Moon has a lot of close knit interaction and wants a lot of change! For those of you who have 0 to 8 degree factors in your charts, it is likely to be an intense few days, very involved with what’s at hand, emphasizing heightened person to person interactions.

It’s a pleasure to meet you ~

New Moon!

Monday October 8 at 8:47 PM Pacific, 15 Libra 48

Square Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Retrograde, Fixed Star Rigel – Again!

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Libra, the sign of relationships. They are looking for equality, each offering vastly different qualities. Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since all the other planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

They are challenged by their square to Pluto! He is most certainly in the glow of the Sun’s Path around Earth, the Ecliptic. At this point he will conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, in only 22 DAYS! He may be so absorbed he hardly notices Sun/Moon. He is small, yet he is a powerful Being, and now he’s even being lighted by the most major Light we know! His power would seem beyond formidable, endless. He could be healer, he could be Evil personified. He’s in Capricorn, either builder or crusher. Libra better tread very carefully. This is not a ‘social event’ where you can just walk out the door with no consequences. Pluto knows your intent just about any day. With his powers amplified, you better go in with a clean heart. If you pass his tests, he will help you, build an awesome ‘house’ for you whether it is healing your body or building the Temple. If you don’t pass his tests, he will heal you so you can. If it is not the right time, he will know that too. If the idea is glamorous but false, it will be replaced or vaporized. You will be transformed, like it or not, one way or another!

Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place Pluto is at. There is an alliance factor. Sun is charging Pluto to the core. Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame. So, it may come to pass the Sun and Moon have their audience. Libra is just the ticket, an ace in delicate situations, reading every nuance, able to step forward or backup quickly as needed. It’s an intricate dance that can have extraordinary results. Respect is everything for Libra’s sometimes nervous subtle perceptions, Pluto’s well protected unspoken fears, Capricorn’s standing, reputation. All kinds of poise will be needed for this dance.

Sun and Moon just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. They are more empathetic. Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. He has freshly transferred some of this to them so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Mercury, also in Libra, is inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, tapping his wellspring of healing knowledge. Mercury’s quick ability may make all the difference. Just a few well placed words at a tense moment, can release the impasse, everyone takes a breath. Mercury is also out-of-sign opposite Uranus. Mercury is skilled at ‘interpreting’ his own way, in this case taking a Uranian odd idea but presenting it as plausibly sensible, catching everyone’s attention. All of a sudden everyone is calm. Oh, that’s what he meant. I see.

Venus is now retrograde and going ‘backward’ is squaring Mars! She’s too nice, and he isn’t. In Scorpio she might not say anything at all, but got what was going on behind the scenes. Mars in Aquarius is just itching to do something shocking. He might be rude or sexually inappropriate. Venus in Scorpio is hard to ruffle, but if he crosses the line, and Venus cuts loose, he may wish he hadn’t, and other people will be on her side. No excuse for her to be mean though. There could be a price connected to that caper. Libra is lawsuits. If things go the other way, Mars may shock Venus into coming out and taking a powerful stand! He could find her helping him present his inspiring project to clients who see the value she sees in it. She could do some fundraising for him if they get past their differences. Just get all the credit ratings, details and facts. See more about Venus Rx!

Mixed Grand Square! The early degrees are again involved, but not near as much as at the Full Harvest Moon. With Uranus retrograde and Saturn moving forward, they are no longer actively trining. The Moon’s Nodes are retrograding to square Uranus though. The Aquarius/Leo axis will find itself being shifted merely by being in Uranus’s company. In Taurus he has subtle electricity. He will have them consider practical changes. The South Node in Aquarius doesn’t like tampering with his genius, yet there is the planet of genius challenging him! The South Node in Aquarius is our past we hang onto, and Uranus is the ChangeMaker evolutionary futurist! What were genius ideas long ago need an update! Leo likes a good show, so is more likely to play but he is the Pet, likes his comforts. At the North Node he is looking for improvements. Taurus wants it to be a safe change that  will bring more comfort if possible, less indulgence at the expense of Earth. Mercury in late Libra can negotiate among them at this point, but when he goes into Scorpio the next day, he may have his own agenda. He may not even want to talk about it, and is stubborn if he does. Gotta show him the value and if it will make money to make him move. Or he may find himself shaking the bushes for funding for the biggest project he has ever worked on!

Fixed Star Rigel! Last month the New Moon at 17 Virgo squared, challenged Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! THIS MONTH, the New Moon at 15 Libra 48 charmingly trines Rigel! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel proudly champions Libra’s handkerchief into battle and comes back with it to return it to his fair one! She is inspired by his magnificent behavior and vows to live her life more fully herself. They make quite the team!

IN THE BACKGROUND

Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1, only that once! They aren’t quite close enough just yet for action, but see more to get ready for it. It is part of the 10 day sequence of aspects started when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Libra lives the crucial function of connecting us, negotiating with dignity and respect, rebalancing our relationships, securing vital alliances. It is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Virgos ~ Smart, Hardworking, Dedicated!

Virgo 4 Planets Robert B Parker Author Office

4 Planets in Virgo, Sun, Mercury, Neptune & Jupiter, Robert B Parker was a 10-page-a-day hardworking mystery novelist, 65 novels, died at his desk. He made his dog Pearl famous as one of his ‘characters.’ Married 53 years to Joan, read more about their unusual marriage.

Smart, hardworking, dedicated and Magical! As writers Virgos make music and magic of all kinds, a sublime symphony of life! They take us all over the world in our minds. Among the pages we meet people we would have never met, learn about things we didn’t even know existed. Creation was never more wonderful! Our imagination is stirred beyond casual limits. We develop a broader instinct and stronger expectations! As with many crafts, Authors, bloggers, ad makers, carefully hone their talents to a fine art! As I sat down to write this, I was given two books about the White Lions of South Africa! I’m ready for the adventure…the next time you see me, I won’t be exactly the same as when you saw me before.

Virgos are adored for their helpfulness and commonsense. Maybe one of the things they do is write a how-to that gets you there and back, saves so much time! Could be on nursing, weaving, pets, growing veggies, with lots of images and a video so you can really see how it’s done by a pro. They do have intricate mind crevices, that work through layer after layer, and leave bread crumb links as they go so others can follow! They are experiential. They learn by doing. They can feel the texture and know if the connections are smooth.

Health is a complex matter. Virgo are devoted to health and wellbeing. They counsel your attitude, question your motives. There is sometimes a long ago mystery in your life that needs resolving before progress can be made in real time. Virgos research important details about quality of food, actual nutrition, natural herbal cures, factors that chemically cancel each other out or block success. They consider many viewpoints to get to a comprehensive holistic solution. That’s work. They add in an exercise regime that makes you so happy you actually do it! And they arrange groups or friends to do it with, so your life is humming, well integrated socially. You feel fully alive and ready for life! They are super caregivers.

Daily life is compelling for your Virgo. Every moment they want the best, a well organized and effortless flow. Cleaning up, giving away unused stuff is natural. They likely have a polished presentation that is well worth your time. They are always upgrading with the latest information. Many of the good things they do we take for granted – landscaping, house cleaning, at the library, accounting, technical assistance. When things don’t work, your Virgo can readily fix them and save the day! They are succinct at explaining the matter, the cause, the best gear for the job, where to get it, how to do better, prevention of future troubles. They follow up and recommend when to check back. They appreciate any extra training offered, learn it well. Don’t hesitate to send them to the best schools. Don’t be surprised if they become the instructor!

Workaholic? Don’t do it. Do what you love. If you do what you love, you want to be able to do it with verve! You keep your own health better so you can! If you do work out of false obligation, you get more tired more quickly. Your decisions aren’t up to par. You get dull and dry spirited. Definitely bored, maybe chronically depressed. You float rather than engage. You might get downright grumpy. Time to stand back and get back on center. Let someone else who would love that work do it. They will do better than you ever would or could because it is in their Spirit to do it. You be happy somewhere else!

If a Virgo loves you, you know you deserve it and they really do love you. They can be picky. If they don’t find anyone to the quality of their standards, they will live alone. Not necessarily lonely, because there is always so much to do. But if you are interested, you may need to find a way to get their attention without annoying them. They can even be a bit intimidating because they are so knowledgeable and to them, whatever they are doing is important! It may take a few times to get through. A note might work to start…’I know you are quite busy. When will you have a few minutes to talk? I need to ask you a question.’ At that time, get right to the point. Would you like to go for coffee, tea? Take them up on the window they offer, even if it is brief. They will appreciate your respect of their time. If things go well, they will make more time for you.

Virgos are not famous for their passionate love life, yet it is the sign of the Virgin. Ahem. Fresh as a daisy might have been said about them. Keep it clean, pay attention to your Virgo’s intimate requests. Take them away from work, turn off the phones, hire a well qualified assistant to take care of  the pets, water the plants. Late morning to mid afternoon is good timing. Let them get plenty of rest and do your most special things before they get tired. Feed them what they want. Overnights and mini vacations might be a perfect start or a way of life together. If they start worrying about things at home or their job, it’s time to honor that and get back.

Remind these good dear Souls that they are good! They are susceptible to criticism and are their own worst critics. That’s part of why they are so good at their work. And, ironically their ability at criticism is also one of their best talents as well. They can be excellent editors, book critics, write amazingly insightful letters to the editor, scan the production line to make needed updates. They can be excellent appraisers, and make dead on assessments. It often just takes a glance. They see an array of classic factors, and sure enough, it is as they suspected. They can save you a lot of time and money.

Virgos are often at the sides of professionals like lawyers, organizing, researching. Models almost always have Virgo in their charts. That is the pure clean virginal sweet look they can have. It becomes innocent to buy the most sexy offering at the fashion show! Teachers, Leos, often have Virgo in their charts. They back up what they say with impressive stats and details, show their students how to do it for themselves. Virgos are pros at how-to demonstrations. Stars and CEOs often have Virgo personal assistants. Stars and CEOS have a lot on their plates and need the best care because of the intensity of their work. It is taxing. They need help right down to having someone be sure you get a good meal and make sure you get to your appointments. Sometimes the assistant is brighter than the employer…but the assistant is smart to pick an employer with something extra special about them! When you interview a Virgo, you are being interviewed as well!

You Virgos are invaluable. We just couldn’t do it without you.

Virgo 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy 9.10.18 Young Moon Crescent

VERY Young Moon (barely visible crescent) Sep 10/11! 

For some sky watchers, it’s great sport to try to catch a young moon that may – or may not – fleetingly show itself as a pale, skinny crescent in the western evening twilight. The chances of catching the young moon after sunset on September 10, 2018, vary greatly around the globe. South America is especially favored. It’s usually quite difficult to see any moon that’s less than one day (24 hours) old, and nearly impossible to spot any moon that’s less than 3/4th of a day (18 hours) old. Of course, it’s to your advantage to have binoculars handy and an unobstructed horizon in the direction of sunset, and a very clear sky, for seeking the young moon. Good luck! (Thank you Bruce McClure at EarthSky)

Virgo 2018 Timeline! 

2018 Virgo! Get out your calculators! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you some great results! (SEE your astrologer for your personal timing!)

25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back into Pisces

October 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Virgo’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala was next. The next outer planet sign change will be Chiron. Now in Aries, Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. See the Timetable please. That is complete now, and Mars directs Aug 27, finishes the cycle Oct 8! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! Literally months of retrograde in 2018!

With the multiple sign changes and months of retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!By September 2019, FIVE of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune, is a peerless appraiser, if behind us, is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget the sleeping, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Virgo’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2018 – August 2019!

Virgo Health Strong Stride Couple Nordic Walking

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

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

Pluto has been in trine with Virgo since 2008, gradually making its way along the degrees, now 2/3rds through, finishing Jan 2024. Something special may have started back then, taking years to comprehend fully. Virgo is thankful for the scrutiny of Pluto, another perfectionist, and is glad for Capricorn’s get-it-done encouragement. Yes there may be some gnashing of teeth when pet details must be left behind, or some quality sacrificed. They may sneak in unpaid at night to put on the final finishing details. It’s the principle of the matter, and their name is on it. You loved that project, but, sigh, it’s time to move on. There are even more glorious ones on the way and you will handle them well. Ultimately there will be a reasonable blend between your expertise and the timeline Pluto calls for. Yes, there is some pressure to perform, but you find you are better for it, and can do it. You too want the world to be a better place sooner than later.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Virgo are opposite and it is so apparent. Neptune sleeps and dreams, makes music, knows without knowing why or how, has addictions and sometimes illogical misty visions. Virgo is up and at it, exercise, shower, health food smoothie starts the day, clean machine! They are technically good at music, but not crazy at concerts. If anything, they would be the performer at the concert! Virgos are steady workers, sleep in their own bed. Neptune may blur their facts, drives Virgo crazy, but just the same gets them thinking and out of their rut. Neptune helps them understand why life is so different for the other person, so softens Virgo’s critique. The world becomes more than just the facts, sometimes even another dimension when Pisces’s visions prove true! Other times hard work and the facts really help the dream come true!

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

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

No matter what sign Uranus is in, Virgo finds themselves blinking rapidly! When Uranus is in Aries, Virgo in the ER grabs the patient from the emergency personnel and starts the stabilization process. Virgo tallies everyone’s hours and makes sure they get paid, taking care of these people who don’t have time and can be quite tired after fighting the fires of the land day and night. She may be tired herself. Important to get rest and take care of yourself as well. New ideas are coming in at light speed and Virgos are the perfect people to adjust, make the shifts. It may be annoying and unsettling when your routine is changed, but Virgos always want to do a good job, so they take it in hand as quickly as possible. Be sure to thank these Virgos for keeping things together.

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

Earth signs Taurus and Virgo have simple and common sense. Though a little crazy with Uranus being in Taurus’s sign, the unexpected happening right and left, it can still be comforting to nervous Virgo. Virgo is a famed worrier, meeting one expectation after another. That can be exhausting. So the odd shocker is when Taurus says slow down, things will work out in the right time. Virgo can see they know of what they speak, so with a deep breath, an abiding patience and perseverance can come over them in a good way. They get it done on God’s time instead of other bleating beggars, and people come to see it’s just right after all! Trust. There will be a lot of support from Uranus’s friends, and working together smoothly, the job gets done sooner than planned and it looks good too!

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

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Virgo is the village healer with the medicine basket of herbs from way back. She knows her stuff. Chiron looks into how deep the wound is, back in the psyche as well as the body. He looks to see if it is chronic and needs a longer unraveling spell. Virgo will stay bedside as long as it takes. She’s clever and offers little things to do that intrigue the patient beyond the smaller world they have been living in. Sometimes Chiron helps her know how this has affected the patient’s relationships and business. Virgo calms with her herbs while Chiron introduces some new ideas.

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Virgo watches, takes the best ideas forward, integrates them into our daily living! Virgo’s pace is much more careful; she insists on learning the details for replication. Aries won’t stay long, but it was so worth the encounter! Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Virgo tends the seeds and carries on in Chiron’s behalf. Steady on.

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through August 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can be a staunch advisor, mentor to apprentice Virgo. Saturn can tune up your timing, reputation, finances, how you build your relationships. It can arrange steady funding, a scholarship, or a job that suits your fine Virgo talents. Your work may be more demanding, and you may be honored by being asked to take charge of the project or the company. Your family may be expanding, your responsibilities along with that. Elders or children may need more of your time and care. A well qualified caregiver may arrive and become part of your family. It takes time to master your talents and hone them, but awards may come for the beautiful craftsmanship you have achieved. Document and register your work. Saturn helps you be timely, see what the priorities are, apply your attention to the right details that make the difference. It’s time for you to make a do-it-yourself video or speak to people that can use your help. Long term relationships, both personal and in business may be formed and marriages find more ways to work well.

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Virgo and Scorpio have a lot in common. There are matters about sexuality, financial privacy, both are healers. Scorpio is the #1 sign of psycho therapists working at the deep levels. They help you sort out the underpinnings of your motives, the old, old wounds you didn’t know you had yet influence you to this day. Virgo keeps you in good health so Scorpio can do his work. Jupiter always has another plot to go somewhere, plus adventurous spontaneous options. He’s confident all will go well. Virgo might need a break, but it’s hard to get them going. The trip may be too much for Virgo, so listen to their objections well and don’t neglect them, or the objections, or it may be a one off. Virgos love to improve their knowledge, but Jupiter Scorpio intensity may be over the top for them. Take it easy and let them take things in at their own pace or give them time off. It’s a mixed combination.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Oh, Gawd! It’s a trip of a lifetime and Virgo doesn’t know whether to go or stay! Is there enough money, what if things don’t get done the right way, what will I eat?! Start planning and saving NOW! This may not be the time to be so frugal and virtuous! But a business trip on a budget might be just the ticket! Jupiter has big ideas; Virgo has several stockpiles of ideas that probably add up to Jupiter’s en total! It will either be a challenge to integrate, or they will ping off each other. Jupiter may give the bits and pieces Virgo carries a greater meaning! Virgo may be disappointed that Jupiter may be leaving so soon and might not be back. When he landed, he inspired everyone with his broad knowledge and well intended projects, confidence and optimism, but now Virgo could feel Jupiter is irresponsible. Nevertheless, she has been touched. She may engage in more courses, take some trips of her own in her own way. Her thinking may have more poise as she finds her ideas have more importance than she thought. She had underestimated herself! Get away from the computer and up on your feet, LOL!

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

Jupiter sextile Pluto! Sun, Saturn, Uranus Grand Earth Trine/Kite!

Virgo Full Moon Woodcut Art Nick Wroblewsky

Woodcuts artist Nick Wroblewski works in Duluth, MN where it snows during winter. He has time to do this amazing art! Many Virgos are superb craftspeople, and wood is often their medium. Facebook  Website

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury retrograde, Mars finishing his tomorrow! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

What IS big about this Full Moon is that it is leading up to the financially tasty Jupiter sextile Pluto Sep 12! They are less than 3 degrees apart NOW! This aspect is also good for healing and powerful learning. Luck and expertise will go hand in hand. Don’t be surprised if big dogs/horses and a we bit of gambling get in the mix. It is excellent for installing reliable business programs and placing people in very fitting positions. Things WILL get done and live long, and it will be fun! A special kind of fame and some honor may come with it. Consider imports/exports. Combine business travel with visits to sacred site. Keep your Spirit clean. Everything we are doing now, is leading to these possibilities! Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Be ready to take the chance!

A caveat. At the time of the Full Moon, Venus is square Pluto. The square presents difficulties that need solving to clear the way. Venus might not get her way, and you might not entirely either. Why? Likely there are hidden costs and someone has to pay. It may be tempting to cheat or steal, but this is NOT the time, and watch your back, stay out of harm’s way. Any new relationship in these few days aren’t exactly likely keepers – the potential partner may have serious health or financial issues, or someone that requires them to take care of that for them. Admit your issues that keep you from a greater success. Be a tad more kind, but not a pushover either. Perfection would be lovely, but when do you think that’s going to happen, right? If your sale price is more wishful thinking than reality, get opinions from some other  experienced sellers and make the needed adjustments. If your prices on your art have been too low, raise ’em.

Uranus is the key planet with a strong Earth Grand Trine/Kite formed to it! Sun has given Light in the past 2 days. In Virgo s/he is keenly seeing the great changes coming. She has also consulted with Saturn about when the best times are to do what! Uranus has lots of friends and Virgo will organize the crew, tend to their needs. Saturn divvys up the work so the most will get done in the least time. Uranus offers extraordinary insights to earth changes, the flow of goods and food, basic financial matters of our time, how to stay stable while change, sometimes chaos, are about us. Though grand tines can sometimes slack off, thinking all will be ok, Virgo and Capricorn are both work signs – Virgo with the infinite daily matters and fragments, Capricorn with the timeframe in mind, constantly adjusting the flow as needed.

Moon, in her Piscean empathy, sits midpoint (making the KITE), equidistant between sometimes tough old Saturn, and the wildcard Uranus, though Uranus in Taurus may be more steady. Either can be a challenge to Moon though the sextile aspects are good. Saturn claims experience and isn’t moved by ‘over’ emotional or unsafe conditions when saving the down and out. Uranus is faster than the speed of light, even in Taurus and it’s hard to get his attention. But if any sign can, it would be Pisces, and Moon is so sensitive she senses his slightest shift even before he does it! Pisces softens with Uranus with truer than true insights, senses when Saturn shifts a particle and goes for the opening. Pisces has its own way of permeating and following, can be enchanting. Uranus is so surprised when he finds Pisces tagging along that he listens!

Sun, Moon, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, and the Moon’s Nodes are from 1 to 5 degrees! It’s a tight bunch, all influencing the others! Sun opposite Moon in PIsces is the life of it, having the feeling of what’s up. Pisces is super sensitive and Father Sun want’s to know all the details in Virgo. Pisces sees the dream, and Virgo wants to take it on, even if it is, maybe especially if it is, detail by detail. That is their expertise. They want to serve, whatever it takes that they can do or learn to do. And they will do it well. Trust me. Pisces loves music, and most musicians I know have Virgo strong in their charts. Great music requires fine tuned adjustments and Virgo can do it!

Sun and Moon both activated Chiron, now previewing in Aries. There are new ways to live a quality life, to heal from old wounds. New relationships are forming, whether it is ourself to ourself, or to others with information we didn’t know existed! The business world is changing as we do or don’t connect with other countries. Business rules and methods are changing profoundly with computers and the internet. Jobs and careers come and go. Mutable signs like Pisces and Virgo are good at adjusting, being flexible. Both want the best and are alert to shifts in the valence. And it is so important who we work with.

Saturn is retrograding back to almost square Chiron. We are feeling it. The brush comes so close we are sure we are doomed, but it doesn’t happen. The fears we have are the hints there are things that need to be taken care of anyway. So do it. Be mindful to deal with health matters that nag you. Keep watch over certain friends that may need some assistance. Be gentle with your expectations. Get help if you need it. New ventures in business may be challenging. Do your best and know you did what you could.

Mars retrograde in Capricorn is being sure the latest tools and skills are being introduced and shown how to be used, where they fit in our lives. Mars goes back into Aquarius Sep 10, the day after the New Moon. Mars quickly scouts the area for new friends, inventors, group action leaders, people with their pulse on immediate events. Mars made connections while in Capricorn and will be sure these Aquarian type people have channels to the tools and supplies they need to continue their work effectively.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!The Moon in Pisces lends magic and miracles! Sun in Virgo will work day by day, side by side with you to make them come true! Blessed be.

Virgo New Moon 2018 Sawtooths Milky Way Dark Sky Reserve

Milky Way at the US’s first Dark Sky Reserve, now one of 37 in the world! Ed Cannady Photo in the rugged lands of the Sawtooth [Mountains] National Forest, central Idaho. The International Dark Sky Association will have their annual meet Nov 9-11 at Snowbird UT!

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury or Mars retrograde! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences from before now, until then, are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

3 New Moon Aspects

The New Moon stands just past opposition Neptune in his own sign Pisces! There may have been confusion at the same time as insights. You may not have felt like working or ended up doing something you didn’t expect but was just right. Fears and doubts are behind us. Knowing what they were keeps us on our toes. Spirit is our guide across the river.

Next, Moon and Sun sextile Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio are both signs of perfection. Virgo keeps the budget, tracks the return on the investment. Scorpio uses the data to invest. Great returns are possible! Oh, yes, works for me! Virgo, the herbalist and practical technician, works hand in hand with the Scorpio midwife and saves people from dying or helps them kindly with the process. Send in your application and ask for the money you want. You may get the job and/or the funding you need. I can feel your tears of gratitude. If you are approached to be a backer, give it a chance.

To add strength to the Jupiter combination, the New Moon is also trine Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, so it powerfully assesses what Jupiter is raving about. Capricorn realistically points out any possible flaws that might occur over time, so a less emotional decision can be well made. If you all decide to go ahead, reassess at an interval that would likely work well. Have a back up plan ready to step into in case it is needed. But chances are it will be a success that may need a few fixes along the way. Sun, Jupiter, Pluto alliances are just about invincible! Get out your calculators! Get your team lined up and start working toward your goal! Launch a business, website, important blog!

SUPER DAY! Try to have it wrapped up by the Sep 12 Jupiter Sextile Pluto at 0:56 AM Pacific! That mid of night time means it is most strongly in effect on Sep 11, when Sun sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you amazing results! (SEE your astrologer for you personal timing!)

3 Sign Changes

Venus just changed signs from Libra, her second sign, to Scorpio! Libra relationships are social and public; Scorpio relationships are personal and private. Libra makes cross cultural partners; Scorpio is part of the corporation, financial dealings. Libra is fine arts; Scorpio is psychological, skillful intricate healing in the deepest layers of our psyche. Venus now puts her blessing on delicate matters, places we might not be so proud of, yet are part of us. Sharing our story, so others know they are not the only one, may save lives. There are survivors holding their heads up. If we can know how they did it, we can do that our own way and stand on our own again. Virgo takes notes and especially pays attention to the process.

Mars is at the last degree of Capricorn. The New Moon emphasizes how Capricorn’s work is the wellspring poised at the brink of change! Mars goes into Aquarius the next day, Sep 10 at 5:56 PM Pacific! While Mars previously, in its retrograde cycle, went ahead in to AQ then retrograded back into Capricorn, we had a preview of why we should tend Capricorn’s mission with such dedication. AQ will need every bit of that foundation to carry on the massive changes needed across the board – political, economic, environmental, humanitarian.

Sep 25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back to Pisces to strengthen our dreams, beliefs, intuitive understandings. We see more of the value in all beings, want to save Souls. Right now we are taking a good look at how to do get those dreams rolling, make potent new beginnings, how to lead efficiently and right to the pivotal point!

Grand Fixed Signs Square – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

We have Mars at 29, Venus and Chiron at 0 degrees, and Saturn and Uranus at 2 degrees in a network, each affecting the other! Throw in the Moon’s Nodes at 5 Leo/Aquarius and we have a grand fixed Square! Mars will square Venus. He wants it now; she may have previous plans, but he is persistent. They meet, but hoped for results may not be possible, too late. Or they quibble through it and hope it works anyway. Best is to revisit when Mars gets into AQ. He will want some new different things then. He squares Uranus, the planet of AQ. Uranus is more wild than Mars, but in Taurus may be perversely stubborn, not as quick to respond, or possibly doesn’t want to make as much change as Mars is advocating. Mars can’t count on his friend Uranus this time. Venus might be shy and a little put off by what may seem to be demanding rough or strange ways. The Moon’s North Node, the nodes alway retrograde, is making the squares with Uranus then Venus, last, the opposition/conjunction with Mars. The South Node in AQ is the past, so those old shift-under-your-feet AQ shocker styles won’t work as well this time. Surprise, unnerving strategies won’t be received so kindly. Shift over to the Leo North Node. Be more transparent, put a light on things, put your heart in it and see what happens. It still might not work. Fixed squares often stay just as they are until things move out of the pattern. It’s ok. You all got to take a look.

Also in the degree pattern are Mars sextile Chiron and Saturn trine Uranus. Chiron in Aries offers new ways to do business, relationships. Back in Pisces he offers more understanding to what is going on in our Spirits and the delicacy that may be needed to convince Venus. Saturn trine Uranus is one of those close-but-doesn’t-become-exact aspects. You hope, it gets mighty close, but that’s it. You end up letting go of that chapter. What does help is Venus sextiles Saturn! She can call on her father, her mentor, and elder she respects, an experienced expert. She wants to do what will work in the long term. Mars may be right but his timing may be off. People aren’t quite ready yet. In Scorpio she may not like that Leo Node bright light, but if she and Mars meet later on to review, there may be some surprising results as things are transforming quickly in spite of the fixed signs.

Fixed Star Rigel The new Moon at 17 Virgo squares Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel may stir up Virgo, or Virgo is not impressed by Rigel’s boasting. He is formidable and no pushover no matter how intelligent Virgo is, but she may come to realize she needs a champion!

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Virgo welcomes planetary clean up, polishing our systems, living more purely each day. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Leos ~ Magical Hearts, Uplifting Spirits!

Leo Meghan Markle Harry's wife Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle, Leo born Aug 4, 1981, 12 degrees Leo! Meghan went from her parent’s kid to actress – best-known role, Rachel Zane, on the American legal drama series Suits, to Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry’s wife! She has Cancer rising and Moon and three other planets in Libra.

Leos are noted for their crowning glory hair, their inimitable personal style, charming and young-at-heart romantic presence, athletic prowess! They are often regarded as having a heart of gold, being generous even when they don’t have a lot themselves.

As mates they can sweep you off your feet, put you first on their list, overwhelm you with their creds and prezzies! Give them prezzies and you have their heart. At times they appear to be selfish, though being themselves is important to them. It’s like they run their own experiments to see exactly what that has become to be! They are ardent lovers and want you to enjoy your time together. Or they are off on a strenuous, possibly dangerous, adventure and can’t always be with you. But, ninety nine point they come home the hero and so happy to see you! You forgive them everything and anything when you see the beautiful roses!

They are generally awesome parents, concerned with your physical and personal well-being, want your schooling to be the best, and may decide to personally homeschool. They certainly do a little teaching themselves. They are naturals and can’t help it. They will attend all your events as possible and are the loudest parent cheering you on. And when you graduate, OMG, they are SO proud! They may have been a little domineering to get you there, demanding, but they have such confidence in you it’s really a compliment! They truly believe in you. But there are times you have to keep clear whose life you’re living – yours or theirs. Teenage time can be a trial for both of you. Stay true.

Whether work or doing what they love, Leos want to be number one, and work hard to make it so. They may be the CEO or the labor leader. They give it their all, until they don’t. If they take time off, they are the laziest lion at the beach, snoozing and snoring, oblivious. When they rest they give that their all too, LOL. But, it’s not unusual for them to give prime performances and receive awards. They have a flair that makes you notice, they have big spirits that call you to follow, keep your attention. You want to be like them! They make extraordinary color, use light and shadow-shape sequences that open your senses beyond any experience you ever had before. It really is magical.

Leos are athletic and enjoy being in their bodies! Prowess looks good on them. They stretch like a cat, run pretty fast, dance like crazy tossing their manes with abandon! Their fire sign health is superlative. When they do get sick it is usually a Class A crisis, could be a high fever, their heart, a painful back, sport injury. And they are terrible patients. First they make the most of all that attention, but when the balance shifts, fewer visitors, and they are more healthy again, then they just wanna get out of bed and go do something! Showing weakness for long is not their cup of tea, and they can be stubborn about therapies, physical or emotional. The healer has to be very clever to keep that client interested, listening, not to upset their ego. You have to watch them like a hawk or they get into foods not on their diet. Don’t put chocolates or ice cream anywhere in sight!

On the other hand, Leos are fine Doctors! How happy it makes them to be the hero of our very lives! Vitality, zest for living makes a huge difference. You can be sure, even if your Dr is full of him/herself, thinks he’s God, he is going to be good at what he does and you are in good hands! But some really understand your plight and have those hearts of gold. You heal exceptionally quickly in their inspiring care. Blessed for sure.

Parties? Oh, yes! They do have enthusiasm! They send invitations, give orders, and that party is whipped into shape toot suite! Romantic lighting and decorations, dance music, excellent food and drink, in the summer, ice cream! Leos like acting, so costumes, dress up is always fun, who shall I be today?! Or come as you are! It’s not uncommon for Leos to have Leo parties for all their Leo friends! Party games get lots of laughs. High spirits! Possibly a famous glamorous guest. Memorable, of course.

There is no doubt Leos are special Light Souls. Their shining Spirits, their courage, a steady willingness to bring you with them, to share their knowledge with you, inspires us every day. They praise our smallest efforts and tell us we can do it. Their smile lights a room and the whole event changes when they walk in. They have stage presence, or the ability to act like they do, even when they are scared!

Some super famous Leos! JK Rowling/Daniel Radcliffe (four planets in Leo!), Barack Obama, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Chris Hemsworth, Amelia Earhart, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Mick Jagger (four planets in Leo!), Halle Berry – first and only woman of color to win an Oscar for a leading role (Mercury, Moon/Sun in Leo – a double Leo!)!

“Go boldly and honestly through the world. Learn to love the fact that there is nobody else quite like you.”
― Daniel Radcliffe, born July 23, 1989

Leo 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Late evening to dawn on August 11, 12 and 13, 2018, the Perseids! 

The Perseid meteor shower is perhaps the most beloved meteor shower of the year for the Northern Hemisphere. It’s a rich meteor shower, and it’s steady. Best of all, the slender waxing crescent moon will set at early evening, providing deliciously dark skies for this year’s Perseid meteors. These swift and bright meteors radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero. As with all meteor shower radiant points, you don’t need to know Perseus to watch the shower; instead, the meteors appear in all parts of the sky. These meteors frequently leave persistent trains. Perseid meteors tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn. In 2018, the peak night of this shower will be totally free of moonlight. Predicted peak in 2018: the night of August 12-13, but try the nights before and after, too, from late night until dawn.

Don’t rule out early evenings, either. As a general rule, the Perseid meteors tend to be few and far between at nightfall and early evening. Yet, if fortune smiles upon you, you could catch an earthgrazer – a looooong, slow, colorful meteor traveling horizontally across the evening sky. Earthgrazer meteors are rare but memorable. Perseid earthgrazers can only appear at early to mid-evening, when the radiant point of the shower is close to the horizon.

Leo 2018 Timeline!

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Leo’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala was next. The next outer planet sign change will be Chiron. Now in Aries, Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. See the Timetable please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! Literally months of retrograde in 2018!

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

By August 2019, four of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn, a peerless appraiser, if behind us, is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget the sleeping, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Leo’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of  2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Leo 2018 – August 2019!

Leo Woman Traveler Luggage Heels

Leos were little commanders even as toddlers and they are still going to the top!

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

Pluto and Leo may have financial contentions. Leo wants to spend it, lots of it; Pluto may need to limit the spending. Or, Pluto’s portfolio is so substantial, it’s no problem. Of course, Leo is often the star, and Pluto may be jealous and possessive, and/or manage your vast funds astutely! Leo is thinking, ok, as long as the money keeps rolling in…but eventually can only be themselves no matter what Pluto wants. Inheritances can happen, but often because of a sad loss. Sometimes part of the loss is bitter battles over who gets what. Or there is no will. Do make yours. Cautions about secrets. Leo can splash it about, but there may be a price if Pluto is wounded, or can blackmail if Leo has been naughty. Leos have their pride and Pluto sees their deepest flaws. Pluto may call you to face up, and be of great help with your healing process if you let them. Trust on both sides is needed. Leo and Capricorn are often a great combination, each so proud of the other. Capricorn may hold the reigns more tightly than Leo’s fiery spirit can bear, and be too grinchy with the funds. Let loose a bit or you may lose your Leo! Let them warm your heart, especially when you get a little scared. Leos often find it hard to admit fear in themselves or others, so talk it through with a friend, before you talk with your Leo, and do your best. They do admire courage!

Neptune is in its own sign, 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! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Leo is enthralled with magic, magnificent dreams, and are ardent fans of heroes and heroines! Leo is led to support causes for those in need, inspired by Neptune’s compassion. Neptune can diffuse our intentions, a seeming confusion, as our consciousness expands. Our senses extend beyond any dimension we ever imagined, and we are freed to be illuminated. Sometimes Neptune’s web is strong and holds us until we are at full strength. Quite a difference from Leo’s stage, Neptune calls on us to take time out, recenter, respect solitude. Yoga and sports works well! As a result, Leo and Neptune may find themselves in league producing the concert of epic proportions!

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

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

Leo finds itself in the exotic position of being the sign opposite Uranus’s sign Aquarius, and inspired by its fellow fire sign Aries! Just those last two degrees, 28 and 29 are all that’s left. Though fire signs sometimes seem impervious, wrapped up in their own doings, uninterruptible or you get singed without them even realizing it, these last two degrees sense the urgency of finishing what was started. The summary needs to be made and all needs to be accounted for. There needs to be a peace, a recognition of the achievements and people who got us there and to make us aware of future possibilities. Leo is the perfect party arranger and Master of Ceremonies for the event! It’s significant for the group. They all have become leaders! It’s inspiring!

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

Leo and Uranus like to be stand out people! Uranus is ahead of its times and Leo loves to take the lead! But turtle Taurus?! Hmpf. Ok. Taurus provides a comfy place and funding, sure. A massage? You bet! Might use hot stones, magnets, a warm sauna, or electrotherapy. I’ll try it. Once Taurus has them relaxed and listening, ask those Leos questions about our environment, take them for a barefoot walk in the woods. Let them feel the breeze, hear the birds, look at plants and trees. What about food production? How well and what are they eating – organic? Do they own things they love or are they possessed by what they own? What about children? Uranus in Taurus is electric, but steadfast. These questions don’t go away. We are perhaps unsettled, even shocked, but we will be moved. And the weather will change.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries. It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, 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 vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Leo is the sign of physicians/teachers, and Chiron is the Healer/teacher and Pisces the Savior! Chiron was known for chronic diseases, while Leo excels in sports medicine! While connected with Chiron, Leo will probably bring in the physical therapist, move your mind and spirit, get you back on your feet in no time! Pisces is the sensitive and helps Leo ‘see’ the patient through the patient’s own eyes. Synthesized healing and teaching become specialized. Remarkable results. The doctor/teacher may marry the patient/student!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires; Leo has his back! Leo does also have the lazy lion pace, so won’t always be ready on time, but Aries will leave you behind, and Leo wants to see! So off they go! Don’t count on this Aries to stay long though anyway. Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Leo can see how to be more independent and carries on in Chiron’s behalf, perhaps funding the new medical research center.

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through August 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can be a staunch advisor, mentor to grateful Leo. Saturn can tune up your timing, reputation, finances, how you build your relationships. It can be a nemesis if cutting your funding, or job. Your work may be more demanding, and you may be honored by being asked to take charge of the project or the company. Your family may be expanding, your responsibilities along with that, or you wish it would and sadly it doesn’t. Elders or children may need more of your time and care. Leo may find themselves realizing they have become excellent performers and teachers over the years, have come further than they ever thought they would. Relationships have brought many changes and rewards throughout years of learning. Saturn helps Leo be less self indulgent, use your time more wisely. You might lose some weight and feel so sleek!

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Leo is both excited and pleased to have been asked along and at other moments nonplussed, wondered what the heck have I gotten into?! Sometimes Scorpio has a hidden agenda that you didn’t sign up for, LOL! But the scenery is terrific, the temples are profoundly life changing, generally health is good, and Jupiter in Scorpio is an adept healer/prophet. Cheaper than the doc at the hospital. Leo will have so many tall stories to tell, teaching stories too. Do take lots of images and video so they will actually believe you! Dancing! Jupiter may agree to fund you. Ask for the max! There may be a lover, but not a keeper, depending on what else you have going in your own chart at the time. Good luck!

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Oh, Gawd! It’s a trip of a lifetime and Leo is going! Jupiter ups the amps and the trip is more expensive, longer, grander, you meet famous people and there are excellent accommodations! Start planning and saving NOW! Get the best you can! This is not the time to be so frugal and virtuous! (Should one ever say that to a Leo?!) You have one year to do that trip, or trips! When Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2019, believe me, things won’t be the same – business trips on a budget. Leo likes to be comfy, often at home, so be clear if you are considering a Jupiterian/Sagittarian for a mate. You may be swept off your feet by this good looking, impressive stranger, but they are likely to be gone, with or without you. You both best enjoy traveling or you will be a lonely Leo, and we can’t have that! They do keep you on your feet while they are around and your health will likely be A+! They will be missed but, oh, the memories!

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

Full Thunder/Hay TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

Longest Eclipse of 21st Century, Uranian T Square, Saturn Fate & Wisdom! Jupiter/Neptune, Venus Love, and….Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde!

Friday July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

Magnificent TOTAL Lunar Eclipse Sept 27, 2015 taken from California​ by Alfredo Garcia Jr

The Full Moon is a TOTAL Lunar ECLIPSE July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45. It will be seen in a vast area, but, sorry, not in the US. However! It will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100), a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes! Happy viewing to those of you who get to see it! Time to get tickets to the place with the best weather!

Why? Per EarthSky: In 2018, the July full moon and July lunar apogee – the moon’s most distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit – both fall on the same date: July 27, 2018. Therefore, the July 2018 full moon showcases the most distant and smallest full moon of the year. Sometimes called an apogean full moon (or micro-moon or mini-moon), this smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth’s shadow than does a full moon that’s closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit. That’s why a full moon at or near lunar apogee adds to the duration of a total lunar eclipse.​

As a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Moon will not be dark, she will be a bright living red/orange! The connection is maximum, perfect alignment. If you were at the places on Earth it is visible, right on the central Eclipse path, even more so. But for those of us other places, it still has immense potency. This is our second Eclipse of three this summer. People have been asking me if they should meditate or party. Both, of course! Get out there and feel it! BE with it, BE it! Sit with it. Give gratitude for the good. Ask reverently for connection with the greater beings. Listen with your body, mind and Spirit. Send requests to be a better emissary, for the greater good of Humanity.

Shake it! Thunder is like that drum roll when Leo walks on stage, only bigger! It’s a celebration! With all that sunlight, the hay dries in the fields and gives the golden glow Leo’s love! Mama Moon is over opposite in Aquarius bringing all her friends to see this extraordinary performance. Aquarians are hard to impress, so it must be way better than average to get those excellent reviews. If nothing else, Leos give it their sincere best! They aim to please!

Fixed T Square! A couple days ago Sun squared Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Sun didn’t know whether to blink or bolt or just take it in! Thunder is one thing, lightning another! The Gods do talk and write the lightning script! You may have left some friends behind, or they pushed you forward against the odds! Moon is in Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! She can be shy, but less so in Aquarius. He understands lunacy, foibles. And Moon just crossed rowdy and randy Mars 2, 3 hours ago! She was revolutionary and unruly, wherever they were, with no apology! Possibly impatient and grumpy too. A little scared, but took an uncommon chance, and she’s not going back! Sun saw the whole thing, and wonders if he will ever see her again. She certainly won’t be the same when he sees her next! What’s astonishing is all these are fixed signs – Aquarius, (Uranus in) Taurus, and Leo! But this combo, a T Square, is challenging. Aquarius and Uranus are change makers – the only constant is change! Uranus is at the point of the T!​ Leo will stand his ground, is heroic, but he does react to the challenge, and changes to make the most of it all! In steadfast fashion, he prevails! Steady in the Light.

Sun trined Chiron 2+ days ago, while Moon sextiled only about 4 hours ago! Chiron is a great one to consult with about business, partnerships – both biz and pleasure, health and teaching! Chiron tied Moon and Sun together and now they can express what he had to show them as Mars makes his upcoming sextile with Chiron. Mars in AQ is uncommonly fast, and Chiron is in Mars’ sign Aries. Whatever they do, it will be done PDQ, pretty darn quick! Chiron in Aries has a hella lot of spunk, so Moon and Sun were some surprised, and plenty excited to try these special new ideas! We all may find ourselves taking a more potent stand for matters that concern us.

SIX planets are at 2, 3, and 4 degrees! They all have and are interacting with Saturn, the planet of Dharma, now at 3 Capricorn, in his own sign! Sun just checked in for an assessment. Saturn will almost make the trine again with Uranus, but not quite. But Saturn remembers he doesn’t have time to hang out with all his old friends, times have changed. Now it’s important to focus on the current job, the cause at hand. Mars, in next sign Aquarius, is semisextile. He gives Saturn the elbow in the ribs and reminds Saturn global wide important matters are at hand. Mars will help lead him beyond Capricorn’s usual boundaries safely, and right now! Moon was there and she agrees with Mars, helps bring women into more potent roles. Mars and Moon sextiled Chiron and he has lent his support! Get going, make it possible! Saturn will also almost square Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign! Old worries come back to gnaw at us, but we have learned more and know what to do. If it requires attention, take care of it now and keep your life moving!

Change is inevitable, but it comes in smaller and bigger doses! Our Lunar Eclipse and the Aug 11 Solar Eclipse happen during the Mercury/Mars Double Retrograde! Mercury Rxs July 25, just two days ago, so it is what we call ‘in Station.’ At the time a planet turns direction, it appears to stand still, stationary. It’s a time of focus, being immersed in what’s on our mind, coming to understand it during the duration and be good at it. Mercury stands alone, making no traditional connections in this chart. He can be considered free of constraint or from being influenced, or impotent with no connections. That can be good for pure thought, or a mire of mixed thinking that confuses and nothing comes to pass for our efforts. But, we observe and reserve and can see how things work, make a list as we go and take up some of our ideas later if they pass the test of time! Mercury can see both directions after a retrograde pattern is complete!

Mars Rx wants to DO something even if it’s wrong. Consider it a trial run. You may invest some time and materials, but that may be considered to be part of the cost of doing business. Revise your exercise program appropriate to the signs Capricorn and Aquarius. Capricorn is more conservative and able to wait things through. Might miss some worthy experiences or save a lot of time while others are flailing. In Aquarius even the Gods can’t sit still. With Mars, experiential experimenting, research are a must. It’s not just a thought, we must see it for real. And that tells the bigger story, the unanticipated becomes apparent! It’s heady and exciting! So glad we had the courage to try! We are able to advance sooner knowing how better to make things work! If we hadn’t tried, we may have missed something important and have to do a recall later.

Since Mars doesn’t complete its entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

Venus is right now putting the sweets on Pluto so he will more graciously journey his Path to the Ecliptic. Venus 19 Virgo sweetly trines Pluto in Capricorn at the same degree. She blesses him with simple advice he recognizes as a cue he is doing the right thing. His spirits are buoyed and he continues on his important life altering mission.

To the rest of us, on our daily endeavors, she will act like a salve to all the bouncing around we have been taking – the T Square challenges, the double retro. Pluto will be especially blessed. He can be so inscrutable, alone, especially in proper businesslike Capricorn dealings. But Venus listens for her cues. She understands the importance of each detail, smooths the kinks, manages the books and sometimes knows more than Pluto! She helps him without him asking. He deeply admires her and is so grateful though he may not say so. If he starts telling her secrets or indulges in a little gossip, that’s a big deal. It means he trusts her, her discretion. Prime compliment. He may at times be obsessed. She redirects his attention to the priorities in a practical way he can hear without offense. If he is neglecting his health, she offers some options and lets him choose. She is wise to that he will chuck the stuff later if he isn’t in charge. He is strong in his intuition. It has to be his choice. She adroitly makes his appointments in view of many considerations and often makes brilliant decisions herself! She might get a raise.

IN THE BACKGROUND

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, only 23 days until their 3rd and last trine Aug 19, the day after Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde.

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

The innocent, the Profound, Eclipses and Ecliptic, retrogrades, Saturn and Uranus bring us the new and pure, and ageless wisdom, and a wild crazy time! Let that thunder roll!

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Inconjunct Pluto Ecliptic Point!

Still in Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde, SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors!

Saturday August 11 at 2:58 AM Pacific, 18 Leo 42

Leo Crescent New Moon Aug 11 2018 Solar Eclipse Josephine Wall

Leo is THE sign of Cosmic Hair! Celestial artist Josephine Wall couldn’t have captured it better!

This is the last of our three summer eclipses, the second Solar Eclipse! It will be partial, best viewed in Northern Russia at 68%.

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

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

The Sun is potently in his own Sign Leo the Light, joined with Mother Moon, a total Light infusion/exchange! It’s a perfect line up with Earth, a straight shot, so we get some too, ALL of us, no matter if night or day wherever you are, or whether you chart lines up with it or not!

This infusion is off to the side of, inconjunct Pluto, a dark planet, yet a Phoenix that rises from his own ashes. Infused with this Leo Heart of Light energy, Resurrection is likely! If you can see it you can heal it! Let the Light come in to never-been-seen-before places. Admit the hurt, bad places; admit the power you have always had! Get clean and use what you’ve got for the greater good! Use obsessions to your favor; focus them on your top three goals. Totally satisfying. Use extremes to your favor. Have a broad range of attention and resources, head for the top rank, then multiply that by 100 or more! Since Pluto is in Capricorn there may be old parental matters that have hobbled you for a long time. Step out now. They were only in your child mind.

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

This infusion is important because Pluto is quite close now, at 19 Capricorn 20 retrograde. That’s only 22 minutes of space away! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path through our sky, the Path of Light. The Dark, hidden Plutonian ways, skills, come to the Light to lend a hand on the quiet. The Light brightens our Path so we know exactly where we are needed next. No mistake. Capricorn is the Builder. Raise the elevation. Build a Bridge that we may collaborate and have union. Build a Temple that we may give gratitude.

On the day before, Aug 10, at 8:54 PM Pacific, the Moon was exactly with Mercury the Messenger. They were square Jupiter in Scorpio and inconjunct Neptune in Pisces. Things went bump in the night. Scorpio loves the dark. It’s the Underworld medium where secrets and power can be kept or corrupted, used for healing the invisible psyche, clearing subtle forms obscured by daylight scrutiny. It’s a different medium and things that belong to it must be observed in their own element for true comprehension. Jupiter wants the truth, so will do what it takes, hoping it’s luck will protect it.

Neptune in his own sign Pisces is another nighttime combination, the Dreamtime. If you feel it you can heal it. Our imaginations give us cues that we can use when we are ready and able. Moon in Leo brings the Light and  nurtures the shadows, obscurity may grant a glimpse when the mists momentarily part. Logical Mercury doesn’t panic, is used to such dramatic options. He is quick to note what he saw, and amazingly talks it over with Neptune, who isn’t always able to stay clear. His natural element is intuition, not logic. By naming it, a lot can be released, a fear or an addiction is over.This important work first allows the Eclipse to do greater work since the channel is not blocked or slowed, obscured, by psychic or emotional debris.

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

Mars and Mercury matters are not settled. Mars in Aquarius is on the brink of returning to Capricorn for 29 days. What we are doing and why, the work we do and who we do it with, are under consideration. Old skills work, but new ideas lead to greater success in time! Mercury is in Leo, matters of the heart, our sense of personal identity, our creative ability. They are being reviewed. How we talk about those matters, and who we talk with, makes a huge difference. Consider, but don’t expect a final answer during the double retrograde. Wait a good four days after Mercury goes forward, direct, Aug 18 to take any action at all. And you are still taking your chances until after Mars goes direct Aug 27. Be ready to make further adjustments.SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors! We not only have a New Moon, new beginnings, but six factors in the six first degrees! Four of them are moving forward into new ventures, but Mars and the North Node are retrograding, making sign changes.

  • Mars is retrograding out of Aquarius, at 0 AQ, back to 29 and 28 Capricorn.
  • Chiron is Retrograde at 1 Aries, is slower than Mars, so doesn’t catch up with Mars.
  • Uranus is also retrograding at 2 Taurus, slower than Chiron, but in a close position with Chiron that it holds for a 13 year period. They have both changed signs this year, however, so the new game is on! Aries is new beginnings and leaders. Uranus was in Aries, but has passed the baton to Chiron as Uranus is now in the next sign Taurus. Sudden Earth changes. Animals, plants, minerals, climate.
  • Saturn is Rx at 3 Capricorn, but doesn’t go so far back as to connect with either Chiron or Uranus.
  • Venus at 4 Libra is going forward and is leaving her square with Saturn. Being in one of her own signs, Libra, she attempted to placate or boost Saturn’s morale, act as a go-between, or inspire him to find a kinder way to negotiate. It was a challenge, he may not immediately act on, but still, the experience of their encounter is with him. He sees the advantage she offers.
  • She has more success sextile the North Node at 5 Leo! Leo likes her style and she draws him out of himself to consider other people’s needs as well as his own. She does it with class, so he follows her lead! The NN, always in a general retrograde motion, will take her beautiful and classy insights with him back into Cancer. Even the kids will eat the cross cultural dramatic, exciting food preparations! Heroes will be born!

IN THE BACKGROUND

This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter’s last trine with Neptune Aug 19! Jupiter is now at 14 Scorpio 49, only 47 minutes of space apart and 8 days until the trine is exact! It’s only 7 days until Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde, the day before the Jupiter trine!

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

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

Mercury Mars Retrograde 2018 Drone Landscape Panoramic

New point of view! Drones give a greater elevation, a wider vision, the angle you choose! Your screen of the image is in your hands wherever you are. Mars is in both Capricorn and Aquarius, new scientific machines; Mercury retrograde in Leo shows us dramatic new ways of seeing, communicating!

We think of retrogrades as forward, back, forward. That might be hiking or driving up or down mountain switchbacks, or boating the curves of a river as it meanders to a lower elevation. Now we have drones that have a higher vantage point like flying with the birds, or a lower vantage point exactly level with the top of the mist to see a sunrise that is clouded in below. It can see in front of us to see where we are going, and in an instant turn the drone to see behind us, see what the way home looks like. We can take our picture as we, our child or dog, race into a scene, amazing action shots, or a close up while we are far, far away! Our perspectives are expanding, enhanced, just like what happens with retrogrades, even more sophisticated!

Mars only retrogrades every other year, so this double Retrograde can only occur then and only if Mercury happens to retrograde at the same time!

This intricate double Retrograde process hosts two outer planet sign changes, two major outer planets aspects and precedes Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! Plus, Oct 30 to November 8 is an exciting TEN days in its own right! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a rare event! See more!!! Nov 1 Jupiter 28 Scorpio trines Chiron just that once. Nov 6 Uranus retrogrades back into Aries to review and update! Nov 7 is the Scorpio New Moon, and Jupiter 29 Scorpio, last degree, inconjuncts Uranus just once! Some people you travel with, some no longer, new ones pop in! This is it! Choose who you go on with now! Nov 8 Jupiter hop scotches over the line into his own sign Sagittarius! Where are my walking boots, my horse, my travel tickets?

Here’s the Mars & Mercury timetable:

The Mars Cycle Started May 12 in Capricorn!
May 15 New Moon, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius
May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter trines Neptune

June 26 Mars Retrogrades
June 28 Mercury into Leo

July 7    Mercury starts Rx cycle
July 25  Mercury Rxs

Aug 11 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse same degree as Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!
Aug 12 Mars back into Capricorn
Aug 18 Mercury turns forward/Direct
Aug 19 Jupiter’s last trine Neptune!
Aug 27 Mars turns forward, Direct

Sep 5   Mercury into Virgo
Sep 10 Mars forward into Aquarius!
Sep 12 Jupiter’s last sextile Pluto
Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces

Oct 8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Mercury will do his 3 part cycle July 7 to Sep 1. Both Mars and Mercury will be retrograde at the same time July 25 to Aug 18! Watch your step! Mercury’s entire Rx cycle is within the Mars Rx! Though in different signs, they are inextricably linked by time.

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

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle. Mars will be doing business 28 Capricorn to 9 Aquarius, establishing innovative community liaisons and Internet presence. He opposes Sun at 4 Leo from 4 Aquarius. Activation, independence, Fatherhood, leadership and freedom will be important. Mercury will cover 11 to 23 degrees in fire sign Leo the sign of the Sun! He lights the arena, speaks from the heart. Teaching and sharing mean a lot. In Leo puts his personal stamp on the way things are said, is specially himself and like no other.

The last Mercury Rx was in fire sign Aries, Mar’s sign. These fire signs can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warm your very Soul. They raise you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

Mars started his cycle May 12 in Capricorn. Three days later, on the May 15 New Moon, Uranus moved into Taurus for the first time in 84 years! The same day, Mars moved into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign. What a bold are rare start! Uranus will change the Earth herself, Mars will be the champion in her behalf! In Taurus, Uranus’s pace will be slowed somewhat, but not in Earth matters! Mars will stand near, making sure Uranus doesn’t forget to use the electric jazz that is his natural talent!

May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter makes his last two trines to Neptune, the entire period during the Mars cycle. It isn’t just that this lovely dreams-come-true trine happens, Scorpio to Pisces, but Mars indicates how we activate and do it! While in Capricorn he puts his shoulder to the wheel, builds, pushes, works overtime to set a strong foundation to make a place that properly supports the project. In Aquarius he looks for the most avant-garde possibilities to make it awesome. Electronics are the finest, community backing assures continued progress. Efficient sustainable results save money in the long term.

Mars Rx in Capricorn checks project status frequently, catching snafus or being sure changes are implemented promptly. Better techniques are incorporated as they are discovered. Short term nuisance, long term blessing. Bosses may change mid-course causing some more adjustments needing to be made. Some may lose their jobs yet, in time, find themselves in a better place. Fathers may fret over the right course to take with a child who seems to be in trouble. Get unbiased help from an experienced professional. Aging may require some changes. Allow for a slower recovery, possibly from a recurrence of an old health matter. Ask around to see how others have dealt with it. Do some good things for yourself and take some time out if possible.

Mars Rx in Aquarius may find themselves needing to be more free from all that work, even if it was your choice to do it! Time to be the consultant! Could be some new friends have caused a course change with their offerings, new ideas that have a broader reach are electrifying! Aquarius can be so fast that even Mars is having to hustle to keep up, and that’s rare! It’s gratifying to be first, on the cutting edge again, exultant to be the leader and wake people up right and left! Dashing to and fro, meeting people that support your ideas makes you come back to life. Some of it you may not understand yet, but you sense an outrageous potential! The old gray mare ain’t what she used to be!

During the time when Mars and Mercury are retrograde together, we have the Pluto-on-the-Ecliptic connected Aug 11 New Moon SuperMoon Solar Eclipse. They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

How we think about it all is in Mercury’s mind. In Leo there is a wanting to outdo all others, to make it grand and mighty! Mental prowess is formidable, creative and inspirational! We are each called to contribute our best, to make it glow! Our hearts are strong and true. People see our story and want to join in. Changes will be needed to accommodate the new fit. Colors and lighting will change, our presentation, how we dress, our hair, nails even! Some will be a little bossy, and that may be a relief that someone took charges, or we may find ourselves being bullied, or not credited with our contribution. Keep it square. Leos aren’t always quick on their feet adaptable, but they mean well. Come at it a little more gently ~ see how that works. Everybody stay with your exercise programs.

Mars’ second station, standing ‘still’ at the retrograde/direct turning point, focuses intently in Capricorn, steeping in wisdom, the experiences of the ancestors, gathering strength. It starts being within one degree of this turning point on Aug 16th and continues there until Sep 8. Stay in your integrity, respect all beings.

While Mars is finishing the third part of his cycle, Aug 27 to Oct 8, he returns to Aquarius Sep 10. Sep 12, Jupiter makes his last sextile with Pluto. Jupiter is in Scorpio, a mixed combination of a fiery impetuous planet in a you better do it right sign. Jupiter wants to tell all and Scorpio gives a look of warning that you believe. Ok, we’re looking for middle ground here? A sextile is a good aspect of opportunity, but probably not about telling secrets, or you get the scoop and the Pulitzer. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn, holds the power of the law though, so you better be sure before you tell that story – scandal, libel. Even though Mars is not at close degree of the sextile, in Aquarius he is definitely a rabble rouser and may throw both Jupiter and Pluto off balance. They can see the wild card coming. So find a way to get the information out that will prosper for all in a good way. Don’t wait to be caught; turn it to your favor.

Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces. He sees the exquisite compassion or the devastating downfall, sometimes of drugs and disability. He returns to a remarkable insight, revelation of Spirit that was clouded before. He has been ahead in Aries and now carries the great sword of fire to cut away the pain of having been harmed, cauterize old psychically bleeding wounds, to release misunderstandings we carried that weighed us down. The healer/teacher has stepped up to the plate, no longer so easy going, letting us be in our stew, but insisting we make changes. Period. Time to get up. He has seen more about how it has been done, is here to take us the next step. On your feet, we can do this.

Much shall have happened as we approach Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30!

Astrology chart of Mercury starting Retrograde July 25, 2018 during Mars Retrograde.

Mars Mercury Double Retrograde 2018 Astrology Chart

Note the T Square – red triangle: Mars, Uranus at point, Sun/North Node. There will be some challenging surprises! See that pretty little bow? It is continuously linked by the green lines across the top of the chart! It is crosslinked by Moon trine Venus/Venus trine Pluto, and Jupiter trine Neptune! Two trines for money and wellbeing, two feminine planets – Moon and Venus, plus learning, dreaming and spirituality and happy magical traveling! Wow!

Aspects during the retrogrades

Mars makes most powerful aspects while he is in Aquarius! May 15, 16 Mars sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus. During his Retrograde, Aug 1 and 12 he squares Uranus then sextiles Chiron. The third set is Sep 10 and 18, sextile Chiron, square Uranus. Mars activates Chiron’s awareness of what needs healing, opens gates to the future and starts further healing with unusual techniques either new to you or new to the planet! On the daily earthly plane, Mars square Uranus in Taurus can be accidents – knives, autos, electronics. Taurus can be trucks, ground to air transportation, earth pockets/volcanic, quakes. Maybe not the time to go spelunking, hang gliding or skydiving. If your 6th sense says don’t, then don’t.

If you are not one to take chances, maybe this will be just the aspect to make you give it a try, but choose leaders with experience and integrity. Sun trine Mars gives prowess and a lucky winner May 25; Jupiter trine Neptune gives protection. The Aug 1 and 12 square Uranus sextile Chiron have more protection because they are followed by Jupiter trine Neptune Aug 19, but still chancy. Mercury trines Mars June 1 and Sep 23. Good use of gear, quick responses.

Three times aspects Mercury makes are square Jupiter in Scorpio, and a yod to Neptune and Pluto. Square Jupiter may disagree on which way to go, which school to select, has the best teachers. Ethics may be important to your life, who to hang out with. Perspective can be crucially important. Exaggeration or lies, misrepresenting, could be costly. We can be expecting too much, be overwhelmed. Privacy and trust or too much truth and way too chatty? Or you win the lottery, and, oh, dear, what shall I do?! LOL Some problems diminish in importance as you get used to the idea and find excellent solutions.

Mercury yod, at the point of a ‘Y’ with Neptune and Pluto is a tough place for playful Mercury in Leo to sit. Leo loves a great performance blazing with remarkable colors and making sounds that heaven can hear! Neptune in Pisces can go with the flow but will eventually retreat to the ashram and meditation, solitude. Woops, did I hurt their feelings? Pluto in Capricorn may join you if he likes your style, but more likely he will be far more proper, conservatively snatching glances at your debauchery, interesting but certainly not really professional. Hmm…yet the employees seem to like it. Well, ok, maybe again next year. In Leo, Mercury can seem like a me, me, me, person and that can be good. Personal experiences can come from the heart and make us all human together, warts and all. If anyone can give a radiant talk on the amazing upcoming project, they can, and have you eating out of their hand! Rewards welcome! The more quiet watchers marvel and are glad to have them. They couldn’t have said it better, at all! Hat’s off!

If either Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well. Mars in Capricorn it is tool safety, architectural instruments, maintenance, repairs freezers, earth movers, forklifts. Get mechanical items serviced. Mars in Aquarius especially involves vehicles, bicycles, drones, mechanical and electrical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned work is likely, project course corrections, rehires and job shifts. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end too. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done for Mercury until the 3rd phase is done Sep 1, Mars Oct 8!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Mars in AQ can be super spontaneous and sweep off on an extraordinary new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. In Capricorn, don’t fall for too much pessimism. Keep working but keep watch. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt to those Leo wishes. They can pull off amazing things, and with Jupiter trine Neptune the odds are in their favor!

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!
