Capricorn, Beyond Amazing!

Capricorn Bukkane Goats Capra Hircus Ireland

Fantastic wild Bukkane Goats (Capra Hircus), at the Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, Ireland. Not native to Ireland, these animals were once domesticated, but over the hundreds of years since their introduction have established themselves as a wild population.

“Very naughty goats [not the ones above].” The [Exmoor UK] villagers have tried shooting and poisoning. They have paid for modified cattle grids and ambitious mass relocations. Still their washing lines are raided, their cricket greens are destroyed. Now they are trying contraceptives!

Worldwide, domestic goats are well loved and a nuisance at times! Wild or domestic, they are utterly amazing! They have strength beyond comprehension. Unbelievable surefootedness. Their tenacity knows no bounds. They are used as pack animals because they survive well in remote isolated places. Smart and clever beyond words. They utilize rocky harsh sparse spaces others couldn’t begin to. Wherever they are they find food, anything and everything. Intrepid.

You know, you will never really domesticate your Capricorn. There is an untamable Spirit that shows through no matter how proper, sometime stuffy, seemingly obedient they are. There is always a tiny twinkle of perversity that often pays off when they find a better way no one expected! They are supreme scientists and researchers. They make do with little and even that is done potently, no moment or material wasted. Ultimate sustainability experts that reuse everything. They have endurance that defies natural law.

And don’t mess with them too much. Even human goats have those horns, a hard head to butt with and butt back with. They can come after you or defend you. If they defend you, you have a true champion, otherwise evacuate now, LOL! Since that strength is there, they may be difficult to reason with at times. They can just get away with it because they are so smart otherwise. They are valued and respected in most regards, and the rest is allowed. Happens both in relationships and business. So if you are the Cappie, be aware of this foible and kindly listen and moderate your behavior as makes sense.

Human goats need to watch their bones and skin and hair and nails and teeth. But especially their knees. Clearly an uphill fight is no problem in your mind. With those knees, concentrated strength and agility, scaling the heights is a natural. Mountainous terrain, snow and ice or local business challenges, accruing professional degrees, being the CEO are no problem. Sometimes though Capricorns need to reasonably take the soft side – surrender, be humble, ask for help, get down to the same level as children and shorter beings. Some things just can’t be ordered to happen. Your knees are your sacred barometer.

Capricorns are generally stronger as they get older. They pay keen attention as they move through life. Experience and wisdom play important roles. Timing is one of their special talents. They know when to pause, stand completely still, make a move, rest, charge and get it done now and don’t stop until it’s done! They excel at self-control and dedication. They work hard and expect you to also. They are grand mentors and it’s so worth it to work with them. They love you loyal.

Younger and some Caps can be fearful, mainly afraid of what people think. That’s a tough one. Sometimes it just takes some living to get through it. Other times, talk it through with friends, with an experienced other person you trust, a good counselor. Hang out with people who have a good track record and hold strong ethics. Just being in their company shows you how they operate and without realizing it, you will come by some good behavior by simple transference. Be your best natural Self. Failure, mistakes and being wrong are forgivable and can be changed soon as you find out how! You can do it.

Not only do Capricorns build people, but are masters of construction, real estate, and are impressive architects. What they build lasts forever for the least price and the best materials. They are only too aware of hardship and danger. Strong timbers, stonework that won’t fail, insulated glass to reduce living costs. Sustainability makes sense to them. They are at their best fitting the building to the lay of the land and local resources. Some of their lodges, corporate headquarters, temples, are works of art.

Magician or High Priestess, Capricorns can be stumbly funny or ruthless! Sometimes they don’t even know what they are capable of!

You are in good company! David Bowie, Denzel Washington, Stephen Hawking, Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, John Legend, Ellen DeGeneres and so many more! Many have come from nothing and nowhere to somewhere! We are so proud of you all!

Outer Planet Transits with Capricorn 2017 – Jan 2019!

Capricorn Woman Hiking Angels Landing, Zion National Park, Utah

May you enjoy many treks or road trips with superb scenic views! Hiking Angels Landing, Zion National Park, Utah

We are now, since Nov 11, at the third aspect of a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018! Two of those aspects will have a strong focus since they will be traveling closely together several months at a time.

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Capricorn’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 and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see. Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus. Chiron shifts from Pisces to Aries. They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. 
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!.

With the multiple sign changes and 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!

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 18 to 21 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 Sun and other factors in Capricorn from 0 to 19 degrees 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 planets in Capricorn. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials so show it. 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! Hang on!

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 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Capricorns often surprise people with their spirituality. They are the sign of Ceremonial Magic, the Magician. Since they are realists, they often ‘see’ absolutely accurately, psychically. Cap is the composter, Neptune plays their music back to them to get the sound of life. Neptune softens and flows, Capricorn’s abilities refine, whether it is interactions with people, loved ones, or doing business. At some times their responses seem muted, but watch and listen carefully. Good chance it’s important.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees 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 a automatic. In fire sign Aries, the First of everything, Capricorn is sometimes shocked! That could be scared or awaken an inspiring new chance. Sometimes Capricorns forget the zest they once had. Uranus the ChangeMaker loves to see that spark come back to life! One ember will do the job. At times Cappies can feel so all alone, keeping integrity in spite of taunts or scorn. Uranus has a crew of hotshot warriors/warrioresses ready to stand at your side, hold you in a Circle of Light, burn away the dross and raise you up to the next level. At first you aren’t sure about these upstarts, but you will find your way. They are glad they invited you!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Another earth sign, Capricorn, likes common sense and practical. Uranus, though perhaps slowed a bit in Taurus, nevertheless likes change, and Taurus doesn’t give up. They have the horses and the plow, that soil will be turned. This Taurus pace is more comfortable for Capricorn. They have protected principles for centuries, so hold strong, but in the gentle caring face of Taurus they feel more safe to consider additional options. Taurus knows value, Uranus assesses instantly. They see the good in you that is worthy of their support. Uranus in Taurus makes the land fertile, is innovative in sustainable matters. It will make your properties more valuable in the long term. Step up now.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes, Aries initiates. Chiron enters 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 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. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune 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! Like with Neptune, Chiron plays Capricorn’s music! Somewhat like Capricorn, Chiron was a loner for a long time, but did amazing work as a healer and teacher. Chiron has natural skills this way and passes them along to Capricorn for personal use, to give to loved ones, and use in business. Marriage could be in the offing.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! During those years, Chiron will be challenging Capricorn to stand up to his full height, no drooping shoulders. Some old ways will be abandoned, Cappies sad for the losses, yet knowing it’s time to try out what’s on the cutting edge. At times they will resist, and thankfully preserve what remains valuable. It will take some dancing to decide when to do which. Chiron in Aries wants to heal our Spirits. Spirit being invisible, it may be a little difficult to prove your point to Capricorn. They want the facts. So go for visible effects, results, to make your point.

x
SATURN
builds from 0 to 13 Capricorn now through Jan 2018. 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 make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! In its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 0 to 13 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through 2018! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 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, 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!

Capricorn has no problem with his own planet! Saturn reinforces all that Capricorn stands for. Being the best Father/parent possible, being responsible, known for doing reliable work, keeping commitments realistically, being on time. If Saturn finds shortcomings, Capricorn accepts that, always wanting to be the best he can be. If there are emotional or physical changes that need making, it can be scary to make the changes, what if I fail or what I try doesn’t work? But Caps a worker, so even if it is a small beginning, he does what he can to get started. If the first way doesn’t work, find out more, try another. Do it as you can, a bit at a time if necessary. You may be on your knees now and again, but you can do it! Hats off, kudos! Such courage, so very proud of you.

x
JUPITER
moves from 15 Scorpio to 19 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, 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.

Capricorn is sextile Scorpio and finds opportunities in all that Scorpio brings! Lucky Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the sign that precedes Capricorn. Jupiter wants to set Capricorn up with big ideas, a plan to match them, a goal that takes them to the top! Education makes a difference. Incorporating ideas from many cultures enhances the whole operation, broadens its scope and success can come from many directions. Capricorn can be skeptical, and Jupiter can sometimes seem runaway, but the ideas are there to be explored. Jupiter and his ideas have excellent longevity. They may not be wholly feasible at once, but Capricorn is great at timing, and can find his way along the chain of command! Yes!

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – double Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Ascendant + 4 planets stellium in Scorpio. See his phenomenal Chart

If your Jupiter is in these degrees, 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 abundant! 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.

Here’s the 2018 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus
Sep  25 Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces
Nov  6  Uranus retrograde back into Aries

Mercury Retrograde Taurus while Mars Retrograde 2016 Road Sign S Curve

June 20, 2016 note: Mars continues Retrograde until June 29, three days after Jupiter trines Pluto. Some energies won’t be released until Mars has gone forward a few days after the 29th.

Mars started the first of its three Retrograde phases on Feb 18! Mars type things started since then until the retrograde April 17 will be reviewed during his retrograde April 17 to June 29. The third phase starts June 29, when Mars directs – moves forward again, until the finish August 22. Mars moves about twice as slow as Mercury, taking 2 years to circle Earth, while Mercury goes with the Sun once a year. So the Mars Rx period is longer, will be 2 months, 12 days!

The first pass is new ground. The reverse period, the Retrograde, things are covered in reverse order, reviewed, changed. The third pass is when the answers fall into place, mature decisions are made, last chances for finetuning course corrections.

The retrograde will span from 8 Sagittarius to 23 Scorpio.

Sex & Love

In Scorpio a fervent time, powerfully potent. Scorpio will generally love you forever, but Mars is less patient. For your own goodness they will prod you to take better care of yourself, mend relationships with other. It can be an obsessive combination, and you may have to take serious measures to depart if they get mean. If a new, fresh love, it may rock your socks, be tantric fusion! Just be careful about starting your new intimacy during the retrograde period, especially if it is an affair on one or both of your parts. There are likely to be sad consequences. If you are single be super careful. If with your very own Honey, what a great time to try out some new experiences! If you break up during the Rx, you are likely to get back together, so if you are serious about it, wait until Mars goes direct, then if you still want to, make your move. Be gentle and kind as possible in all circumstances.

In Sagittarius a runaway adventure! A high % of love ’em and leave ’em, but sometimes so worth the hit and run! Take a vacation with your Sweetie, just don’t take your most valuable luggage during the retrograde. Things get lost, so valuables stay with you on the flight. This wonderful exploration could be to a meaningful sacred site, an altar, to see the oracle about your love life, or off to a school or a visit with a teacher. Don’t believe everything you see or hear, or promises made. Evolution is the always change, and trumps any human thinking. What we thought we wanted changes with the perspective of time and circumstance, and though at first we are a bit undone, in the long term things are better!

Health & Healing

In Scorpio This is one of Scorpio’s prime businesses. They are super therapists whether it is mind or body. They have powerful mojo. If you find the healer uses too much force or intimidation for you, stop the program. If you had a super healer it may be time to return for another round. Good healers always know more about you than you do. They have the intuition, skills, experience that can do the best for you. From midwife to Hospice, let these Beings be there for you. Scorpio specially has to do with our intestines and sexual organs. Less food that over taxes our system. Food and exercise that keeps our body at optimum. Take good care of yourself. It’s another way of loving others.

In Sagittarius Sometimes we forget to play. Our Spirit needs relief from serious concerns. Do some things you forgot you love to do. Literally get away. You and your body forget you had aches and pains. If you are about to publish, perhaps immersing yourself in your text or images will take your mind elsewhere. Or go see a healer that has inspired you or the good people you trust, possibly has helped you before. Try something new. Be with the Truth. If you have been procrastinating, in denial, get with a strong friend, talk about what you are scared of, make your plan, take it a step at a time, have your friend be with you to help you get started. We all need help at times. You would do it for them. Sag is hips, thighs, sciatic nerve. These are what let us propel us through our lives. Be ready to happily make adjustments to your exercise, physical therapy programs. Together we can do this.

Career & Business

In Scorpio Financial relics will be summarily dismissed and replaced – not without resistance, but it will happen! Mars likes things done directly, right at the heart of the matter, with the least fuss. Let go of excess procedures, lighten the load, save time and money. Try some new ventures and keep tabs on things yourself, delegate when you find someone capable and trustworthy. Check on security matters frequently during the retrograde. Get proper lighting and make backups. Don’t be too disappointed if you don’t get the job or make the contact or partnership you expected, or the pay you hoped for. A better choice or deal may be in the offing after the retrograde. If you must have a review during this period, negotiate another after the retrograde. (See your astrologer for good dates!)

In Sagittarius Travelers will change course several times, planners be ready for revisions! What you teach may true one day, new info the next! You might reprint old texts, but do better to wait on your new publishing, a better title, a better cover to come. Caution about religious organizations. The management may change or they aren’t as suited as first thought. Your company may decide to go back to meeting at a previous place. Selecting your courses or place of continuing education will be more sure later on. Keep your options as open as possible.

Mars Retrograde Timeline

Feb 18 Mars started Phase 1

Mar 5 Mars into Sagittarius

Mar 19 Sun into Aries, Mars’ sign. Into Taurus April 19.
Mar 21 Mercury into Aries, Mars’ sign. Into Taurus April 5. From Mar 22 until April 19 there will be 3 planets in Aries! 

April 5 Venus into Aries, Mars’ sign. April 29 Taurus.
April 12 Venus in Aries trine Mars

April 17 Mars RETROGRADE 8 Sag to 23 Scorpio

April 28 Mercury RETROGRADE 23 to 14 Taurus DURING the Mars Rx! It’s a double retrograde!

May 9 2016 TRANSIT OF MERCURY Rx in Taurus, 7.5 hour ECLIPSE across the Sun, 8:12 AM Pacific at 19 Taurus 25! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The last planetary Solar Eclipse we had was Venus Retrograde in Gemini June 5, 2012. The last Mercury eclipse was Nov 8, 2006 at 16 Scorpio. The May Mercury eclipses are about half as frequent as November transits, but are bigger because Mercury is Aphelion, farthest from the sun. They occur at Mercury’s South Node. See More & the Chart!

May 22 Mercury DIRECT
May 22 The same day Mercury Directs, goes forward, Mars is at the Rx midpoint; Mars is always opposite the Sun at its Rx midpoint! This time the Sun is in Mercury’s sign Gemini at 1 Gemini/Sagittarius 47! Mars and Sun, two fiery planets will be facing off. The Sun is Light and rules the Heart, the sense of our core Self. Mars is Fire personified, lives for action! It is the candle flame of ignition when we need inspiration. It quickens our reaction time, is a spontaneous and cleverly innovative problem solver! It is the Seed of Spring, the Initiator, Leader! If you happen to be in the flock-of-lambs dept, not to worry, you will become a fine ram or ewe!

May 27 Mars Rx back into Scorpio

June 18  Mars Rx inconjunct Uranus  – 23 SC 51 Rx. Disturbances in the valence through July 13!
June 29
 MARS DIRECT at 23 Scorpio 3.9!

July 13 Mars direct inconjunct Uranus – 24 SC 25

Aug 2 Mars Sagittarius

Aug 10 Mercury starts Retrograde Phase 1 in Virgo

Aug 22 Mars 3rd phase finishes at 8 Sag, Sun into Virgo

Aug 30, eight days later, Mercury retrogrades in Virgo

23 DEGREES

Though Mercury starts its Retrograde at 23 Taurus, and Mars goes Direct (forward) at the opposite point, 23 Scorpio, they are never in opposition while both are retrograde due to the differences in their timing. But that 23 degree point becomes a sensitive point, since the degree positions when planets turn Retrograde or Direct, called a Station, are held for many days in the sky.

Feb 18 Mars already crossed 23 Scorpio
Apr 28 Mercury Rx at 23 Taurus
June  7 Mercury completes the Rx cycle at 23 Taurus
Jun 29 Mars Direct at 23 Scorpio

Passing it back and forth, who’s across the table, crossfire, differences, independence, separation, negotiation, complementary efforts, exciting joint advocacy, cooperation, will all be part of our considerations. Mercury is mind and communications. Mars is action inspired by Mercury’s inspired quick thinking – even in Taurus, or perhaps especially in Taurus, because Taurus has ruminated on matters, coming up with amazing common sense solutions, worthy of Mars’ actions! A retrograde in Taurus releases long held consciousness. Sensing and trusting fundamental value, Mars doesn’t hesitate to inaugurate a powerful trial in Scorpio, a cautious yet astute sign, to see if further sharing/teaching is feasible in Sagittarius.

More than concurrent retrogrades, the profound 7.5 hour TRANSIT OF MERCURY Rx Eclipse across the Sun, Mercury Direct at the Mars Rx midpoint opposite Sun in Gemini – Mercury’s sign, and the 23 degree connections, these two Retrogrades are powerful and specially linked.

Enjoy your hunt, the Quest, the depths and the heights, meeting new people!

Outer Planets with Scorpio 2015 to 2016! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Affinity and opportunity. Scorpio sees and offers the financial value, may fund the builder. Capricorn grooms Scorpio for a professional presentation, debonair appearance. Capricorn is a mentor Scorpio can respect. They have earned their reputation having worked up through the ranks, seasoned in a wide range of experience, through thick and thin. Cap may stick to the rules, on the safe side, but Scorpio sidesteps and checks behind the scenes. Scorpios bring knowledge of the history, background, current intentions that give the whole picture. Both signs do well with a substantial partner, both in love and business.

Neptune is in its owns sign, just before mid Pisces, still hasn’t reached the hump point, is finding its way. Scorpio and Pisces are both water signs seeking a deeper side of life. For Scorpio it is the depth of a relationship, for Pisces it is the Spirit within. Pisces leads Scorpio from the hurts and disappointments it can’t speak to anyone about, counsels the counselor! Pisces has a sensitive compassion to the fears of vagaries even Scorpio can’t predict. It is delicate helping Scorpio see their part in things. Scorpio gathers the weeping mass Pisces can be at times, not afraid of torrential releases. Pisces, often boneless about money, relies on Scorpio life saving financial talents. Making love is downright mystical.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Aries, the Warrior, recognizes a fellow fighter. Aries doesn’t fool around, steps right up and faces off while Scorpio sneaks around back and catches ’em in a crossfire, but not without getting their credit report first! Otherwise, Scorp is not too happy with that Uranian meddling with their own accounts. On the other hand, Scorpio can yet again help another sign combination not so interested in finances, perhaps even funding the cause! Rarely does Scorpio get intrigued, they have seen so much, but this fellow, though likely dangerous, is at the least entertaining. The Uranian internet can be a blessing as long held opinions unravel and Scorpio wades in to make a more functional alignment, take advantage of the new contours. Odd friends, though likely temporary, may add their expertise.

Chiron is also in Pisces, is also starting the last half of the sign. Magi astrologers say Chiron is the number one marriage factor and great at business! Another water sign trine combination, this one right up Scorpio’s ally! Both Chiron and Scorpio love business, and healing. Some healings are made by mergers, others are so incredibly personal. Some are at the Soul level and Scorpio is adept at assessing past life conditions that are a deeper cause. Chiron in Pisces susses out the hidden, even invisible, matters that are that Soul’s long term spiritual mission. With all this potent information available, real progress can be made. Trines can smooth things along, but they can be hard work if you are used to challenge. Sometimes we just don’t use the trines because we don’t let the goodness happen. We’re not used to it. They are often ignored. Really notice the good things – contribute to them and amplify them.

Saturn is still finding its walking feet in Sagittarius. It will make mid Sag in 2016! Factors in your chart from 0 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other. Scorpio goes fine with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, but is like night and day with neighboring sign Sagittarius. Frolicking like a puppy is not their cup of tea, unless it’s a Doberman. Yet, how much dank and dark can you be?! Sag gets them up and out of their own juices! Scorpio’s highest spiritual color is Yellow, not the maroons and black of their everyday M.O. Of course, you can let Sagittarius lead the way, they are Pathfinders, and follow more quietly behind. That works. Ever optimistic, Sag seeks, and through their joyfulness, usually finds, the best options! Once found, Scorpio gets to work healing the weak spots, prepping the process, researching details, finding partners! Scorpio makes sure Sag takes care of themselves too, acting as healer when needed. Sag isn’t made of steel; Scorpio is.

Jupiter is sextiling in Virgo and will go through the whole sign by Sep 9, 2016! Earth and water, Virgo and Scorpio are both organizers. Virgo knows the percentages, Scorpio knows when to move forward/retreat. They are both healers. Virgo gathers good organic foods, herbs for sustaining good health, keeps a clean home. Scorpio stays away from toxic chemicals, kills off pathogens, through therapy clears our mind, lets go of unhealthy relationships, uses Shamanic healing. All they need is a Libra social director, and the location for a great health spa or vacation resort! Virgos provide the labor, Scorpio the funding. Both watch the books! As personal partners there needs to be a lot of agreement since both are perfectionists. Even in good aspect, Jupiter in Virgo can exercise its ability at mega criticisms. Scorpio coldly retreats at this imperfection, Virgo nags more. Instead, look for a steady supply of appreciation and affection that bring good health, bodily and mentally.Jupiter in Libra is neighbors with Scorpio. As always in astrology, the neighbors are like night and day! Libra is social; Scorpio skulks the perimeter or stays home. Libra wants the courtship; Scorpio wants the goods! Libra doesn’t mind a fair fight, at court, almost a dance, but Scorpio does what it takes to protect and serve, deadly if necessary! Yet, both are fascinated by relationships! Libra wants considerate communications while Scorpio needs to know what makes you tick, asks a lot of personal questions, sometimes just to see your reaction. Libra loves dinner out, candlelight sonatas. Scorpio enjoys intimate seduction, the prowess of a powerful body, the challenge to make you weep in happiness! Libra can get you connected, all the right introductions. Scorpio gets the behind the scenes information to see if they are truly potential partners.

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Scorpio Shamans

Scorpio Shaman Woman

The inner Scorpio has a mighty passion that takes your breath away when you see it!

It may release through doing healing, body to Soul. They see the primitive, primordial within us that is worth saving and will go through Hell and back for us. They wipe our brow, clean our body, remove toxins. Powerful herbs are brought and applied at crucial times. Scorpio can take you on a tour of the Underworld, gather its forces. Or it may uplift you past your own worst enemies, leaving nightmares behind, be a therapist of great courage. Demons are scattered, we are strengthened to show our true selves. They raise the Phoenix from its own ashes, retrieve your Soul. We are no longer lost.

Sharing deeply is one of the trademarks of Scorpio. There often isn’t much fanfare, but the bond is made even if unspoken. Sometimes part of the attraction for them is what they can see they can heal within us and they do it. They take commitments seriously, true mates that share intimacy beyond words. Tantric sex is natural for them. If things aren’t going well, there comes an ending moment, and it is simply just done. They walk away and it’s a rare time when pleading or reasoning will bring them back. You will truly have to prove yourself beyond a reasonable doubt. They may leave you, but the relationship with them will be a merger you never forget.

The back door is frequently used. They may be out on a mission, investigating. Securing our safety, homes and businesses are prime. Yes, they can be sneaky, tough to read poker players, inscrutable. The more they mask, when you see the mask go up, the more they may have a secret about that item. Sometimes it is an exciting illicit relationship; other times it’s the surprise birthday prezzie. Find out the truth, but go easy until you have the answer.

Shamans with a bite! Do have a care. If Scorps feel abused, you may learn the meaning of consequences. Law or no law, pain is still pain. You may accidentally ‘step’ on them and get bitten. If it is a long term matter they may lay in wait, apologies and logic to no avail. Forgiving is not easy for one who has suffered deeply. Sometimes that spills over from past lifetimes and you just remind them of who it was before. If they abuseyou, it’s time to leave pronto. Flippant teasing is not usually cute in these circumstances.

Scorpio may heal your finances. They are astute observers and assessors. They see the omits, the dark spots, underlying motivations. They have good radar. And often they sense investment potential well in advance. if their sniffer goes off, one way or the other, pay attention and double down if things look good! They are often anonymous generous donors to powerful causes.Young Shamans Research, snooping about, finding out how life works, starts about 2 to 3 years old! All the secrets must be known. Why anything anywhere/everything personal ~ about their bodies/your body, sex/separation, money/poverty, life/death. Parents be ready with your answers. Neighbors, everyone in earshot at the supermarket, the bank, the Dr’s office, hospice, will be waiting to hear your response! A good answer may be the most important thing we overheard that day, for months, even years! We may well wish we had learned that a long time ago.

Sports. Whatever takes them to the edge of the world, where they can dare the Devil, laugh and ride or dive again, livens their Spirits! Martial arts, ninja practice, builds their concentration, laser like piercing perception. They are demanding instructors. Scorpios require excellence in every facet of your life and their own – eating, physical strength, quality of life work, respect, compassion, healing, giving.

Fearless intense scrutiny leads to minute molecular perfection between Beings.

Libra Emily Deschanel
x
Actress-Producer, Oct 11, 1976 Libra, Emily Deschanel has three planets in Libra – Mercury, Pluto and Sun, plus Venus, the ruler of Libra in a same degree semisextile with her Sun! What a beauty! Three planets in Scorpio – Mars, Uranus and Venus – love a great mystery and likes privacy. The name of her second son, born June 8, 2015, isn’t shown on the web! Saturn sextile her Sun gives her the forensic show and name Bones!

Emily is a bit old fashioned with Cancer Rising and Jupiter conjunct the Moon. She married in 2005, to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor and writer David Hornsby. They have two boys, both her pregnancies were written into the show Bones! Jupiter conjunct the Moon made her pregnancies famous!

She is a spirited vegan, committed animal rights supporter. Emily did the narration for My Child Is a Monkey and served as an associate producer on the documentary film How I Became an Elephant. She collaborated with PETA on a video encouraging mothers to raise their children as vegans.

Deschanel has worldly social experience, not surprising for a Libra. Emily grew up in Italy, Canada, France, Yugoslavia, England, and South Africa. She says of herself: ‘I’m definitely a people person. I love socializing and being around people and having a good conversation.’ She wanted to be an architect, but life as an actress happened instead!

Sun into Scorpio Oct 23 at 10:47 AM Pacific 

Nov 3 Jupiter opposite Chiron
Nov 5 Jupiter inconjunct Uranus

Outer Planets with Libra 2015 to 2016! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Librans born midway through Libra will find themselves scanned, modified, challenged to stand clean and worthy. Respecting authority is one thing; surrendering to it simply because of rank and title may not be to your advantage. Get a credit rating on others before you do business. If an adversary, don’t underestimate them or delay your your responses. Get professional representation. If a relationship that is mean, sneaky, worrying, isn’t working, get serious help or call it quits and don’t look back! It will be better for both of you. If spiritual, gratefully release the Past, absolve burdens, reach out to what makes your heart smile!

Neptune is just before mid Pisces, still hasn’t reached the hump point, is finding its way. Pisces is across but off to the side from Libra. It acts like a feeler, antenna, for Libra, adds to Libra’s ability to sense any disturbance in the balance of forces. Pisces senses how those shifts fit in the greatest of possibilities. Neptune is the tides of Life and natural rhythms of repetition that keep building the sand on the beach, or taking it away. Libra sees the value of both. It blends, calls on each as needed. So many times both are true at the same time. The Wind blows; scenery changes; we are swept to a different vantage point. Remarkable!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final third of the degrees. Aries, the Warrior, is the sign opposite Libra, sign of strategy! A well placed advocate makes all the difference in advancing the cause! Uranus the Awakener in Aries is a powerful Initiator! This air planet in a fire sign ignites strange and marvelous ideas! Libra must keep a fast pace to open the gateways quickly enough for it all to happen! Libra can find the right place for them, channel them into a greater world to make a profound difference! If Libra has had a long standing pattern of being too accommodating, those days are over! It may feel like chaos at first, and maybe secretly quite welcome, fascinating to say the least! Uranus in Aries strikes for freedom and independence. More fun than in a long time; never the same again! Memorable if you can stand still long enough to breathe!

Chiron is also in Pisces, mainly starting the last third of the sign. Magi astrologers say Chiron is the number one marriage factor and great at business! Pisces and Libra are askew, inconjunct each other. Chiron is nudging the perimeters to the right and left up ahead. There may be alternative ways of healing. Side ventures may temporarily serve you. Pay attention to the signs as you go along, a slight course correction may be in order. A new partner, business or pleasure, may add to your intentions, add more music and insights, sweeten your Spirit with their compassion. With both Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, the strong influx of sometimes super sensitive energy can be confusing. Be cautious of addictions matters. Get extra support ahead of time for anticipated stressful events.

Saturn is still finding its walking feet in Sagittarius. It will make mid Sag in 2016! Factors in your chart from 0 to 16 degrees will be activated. Lucky for you Librans, it will sextile, open opportunities for your sign unless it challenges some other factors in your chart at the same time. Libra is social; Sagittarius is happy to take you as far as you are willing to travel and explore! Saturn is a pro, so seminars, publishing, special training, increase your value in the market place and you may be the speaker yourself! Company parties are in order. Working with seniors has its advantages. Except during Mercury and Mars retrogrades, remodel, break new ground! Build – a sustainable home, a school, a playground, a hotel! Saturn focuses the muscle; Libra adds the beauty, the incredible stone work, artistic details that sell for the best price! Saturn is a production leader and the job comes in on time. This is the perfect time to be equals and plan for the future together! If you are really lucky you may lose some weight about your hips and thighs!

Jupiter is neighboring in Virgo and will go through the whole sign by Sep 9, 2016! Would you believe sometimes Libra is more picky than Virgo?! Virgo gets technical, but Libra knows it’s more than a thing, it’s a living entity that needs an attractive touch to make it whole. Virgo makes an excellent quality long lasting product for the best price. Libra is the fine salesperson who makes sure the right people buy it and make referrals. Virgo provides practical services everyone needs. Libra draws up the contract to assure each party gets full measure. Jupiter wants to teach; Libra sends the invitations and arranges the treats. They are natural together.

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Libra Masters – Fall Equinox!


Libra Mabon Equinox Goddess Leaves Hair Sanderson
…by the magical Ruth Sanderson, Artist/Illustrator/Writer, Golden Wood Studio

There is a sense of Wisdom in Autumn Equinox, Libra time. There is a way of Being, experience, a collection of power, that makes a difference. By Autumn we have brought in the crops. By elder time, we are not so hurried by pressures around us. Things are appropriately slowing down, carefully done. Intention is more focused. Relationships have deeper meaning, alliances are made for times to come. For Libra, there is a greater consideration for all beings, each for their particular merit.

The Mind of your Spirit quickens to the calling, to get things done before the storms. As the Sun tips to the darkside, our need is to be clear. Pure strategy is called for. Impeccable, uncorrupted genius. Libra air sign transparency saves time, is vulnerable to and prospers from a greater sharing. Mergers are formed, some lifelong, some life saving.

Libras are the perfect Guides. They see us. They mirror us. They invite us together to share our willingness.

They are the Peacemakers of Heart & Soul. They ask how can we do this together? Who would you like to meet? Let’s go find them! Where there is stress, they can sweetly firmly tell the law and negotiate. Strategies come naturally to them. They know when to separate and meet again later.

They intend resolutions to be inclusive ~ good for both parties. Their experience and knowing human nature gives them the gift to think minutes and years ahead. They can be separate from their client yet almost be in their skin! They can see what’s in people’s hearts. Will they carry resentment? Will the relationship change? Making fair agreements now is so worth a lasting harmony and better health for all. Anticipation is valuable.

Being social is one level of relationship. We chat on the airplane, make a cherished connection. We bring the coworkers together to celebrate our success. Love relationships are at a deeper level, daily. It takes an acceptance, a genuine understanding to stay engaged. Rather than projecting ourselves on our partners, we need to see them for real. Perception is key. Taking time to reflect eases us along the way. Talking is way more than an information exchange, it is precious sharing as we grow together and things change.

There are beautiful ways to dance the marriage ritual. We can make our own laws of the household. We can be out of the box enjoying the challenges. There is marriage ballet and marriage Tai Chi, graceful, flowing. A symphony.

As we age, as times change, as our relationships season, we come to more than a living together. There is that Libra becoming one with each other.

Happy Equinox, Mabon! Blessed be….

Venus Retrograde Pink Rose Baby's Breath

June 21, Summer Solstice, the day the Sun entered Cancer, Venus started her 3 retrograde phases! 

First phase June 21 to July 25 – 14 Leo to 0 Virgo
Retrograde July 25 to Sep 6, 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, 44 days
Phase three, Direct Sep 6 to Oct 9, 14 Leo to 0 Virgo, complete

Venus the planet of Love and Beauty is in Leo the sign of the Heart of Love. Virgo is the sign of Maidenhood, the primordial juicy Virgin, Purity. 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo are the degrees covered. All but one are in Leo. 0 is the degree of Initiation, new beginnings. We will be launching a new system of daily living (Virgo) founded by lots of Love and creativity (Leo)!

Venus in Leo goes from refined genteel tea ceremony caring to robust party-out rock-n-roll knock-me-down LOVE! Presents mean a lot, from the tiniest rosebud to the best sound system in LA or the finest art! The tallest heels, highest laced boots, the most magical sweeping hair, makeup to light the night! Sequins to diamonds, every star must shine! Princess or Queen, a canny lass knows what’s best!

On the home front it might look like the warmest heart in the world, the tastiest sweet treats in your lunch box. A loving sweetheart makes your life easy, fixes things before you ask, brings you little gifts that make your day, makes that I-love-you call, knows who you are and the good things you do and says so.

On the job it is making the world a more beautiful place, a touch of beauty that makes a difference, sells the product. Successful social gatherings share the pride of a job well done. Entertainment, performances exceed all expectations! Poetry tells the story, and if you are really lucky, you win the bet!

Venus in Virgo is the sweetest. Virgo wants to help. They will slave away day after day, long into the night. They care for the sick, clean up messes, manage your money, help the tenants, do yard maintenance, plant the veggie garden, feed the pets, make sure you have quality food. Whatever it is, they take the time and do more than most, better than anyone, in the shortest time! They are super natural organizers and save money, barter like a banshee. They can be Mother, Midwife, Mystic all rolled into one, all while writing the novel or the grant application!

And believe me, this is all possible with the Retrograde STATION at 0 Virgo, the degree of REGULUS the King, one of the four Royal Stars! Regulus has been in Leo until recently. Now in this feminine sign Virgo, having the only female symbol of the zodiac, the King/God has become Queen/Goddess! It is with great honor that this magical 0 degree station is held for TWELVE DAYS+, late July 18 to early July 30! It will be an initiation, a trial period, a time of considering Purity, the primordial essence of Virgo. It is an indwelling absorption, imbibing the perpetual intention to serve. It calls for an innocence, serving without judgment, gratitude for how each gives as they can at the time.

So first we have Leo the sign of kings, then Virgo at the degree of the king of kings!!! If some of your followers have been missing, call a meeting and give orders! :) You women claim your Queenhood, put on a flowers and herb wreath and enjoy every minute. Be of a generous Spirit for you have it to give. Claim the divine power of the Maiden Goddess Persephone. Be the Midwife/Healer who was trained by her Mother, and Mother’s Mother, and trains her Daughter. Be the One to start that tradition. Be kind in your power. Change is inevitable; it just might not happen at your pace.

Another way is to think about this is the background of the transition of Regulus from Leo to Virgo in 2011, how profound that was, still is. The Leo to Virgo link is the transformation that happens every month as the Moon moves from Leo to Virgo, and every year when the Sun transits from Leo to Virgo. It is symbolized by the Sphinx, head of a Virgin woman, body of a Lion! Being first, the Lion is the foundation, support for Virgo. We know the story of Centaurs (Sagittarius/Jupiter), half horse, half man. Well this is the woman part. The Sphinx is less talked about, a greater mystery for the time being. Women are still finding their way out of slavery, having no rights, being abused. Time to call on the Leo Lion’s strength, be grateful for its Heart and Light. As the horse gave men a greater range of freedom, the ‘enlightened’ Virgo heads the strength of the Lion and serves by choice.

RETROGRADE it all takes a turn. Values shift. Your body tells you it wants different. Age might become a factor. Your exercise routine may be interrupted and those chocolates add pounds. It’s 99% not the time for facelifts or elective procedures. Your wardrobe is all the wrong colors and no longer fits, but wait, don’t buy new while retrograde. A person you thought well of is not as expected after all. They aren’t lover material, and you decide you don’t like that job or want that part in the play either! A long ago abandoned lover returns and you don’t know whether to switch or cut bait! Due to unexpected events, the bet is entirely lost, party cancelled. Better to wait on big spending – furniture, remodeling, expensive landscaping, or even that house. You have changed; you don’t even want it anymore.

HEADS UP for late summer, early fall planning! July 25 to Sep 6, while Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, most wouldn’t choose this as falling-in-love-on-your-vacation time, nor a wedding date choice time. Retrogrades can be unstable with constant mind changes. With this bound in the chart of something started at this time, you always have a sense of unfinished business, there is constant reappraisal. Values aren’t settled. If you love that, the challenges and the Leo dramas it brings, have money to spare for when things change, then life is good, just gets better and better. If aspects are well for you, for you both, at that time, love always returns, better than ever! Leo loves big! If it is at the 0 degree Virgo time, it is probably better to choose a different time. Virgos have enough to do already, and function best in their own routines.

Generally, new needs are in the offing.

THREE PHASES Give it the time it takes. Venus is in the degrees that will be reassessed June 21 to July 25. It Retrogrades July 25, going from 0 Virgo to half way back into Leo, 14 Leo. It will cross this same area the third time when it goes Direct September 6 on to finish the pattern October 9. The whole process will take 3 months, 18 days.

Here’s another way to look at the Celestial Schedule with the Star Regulus!

7/18 Venus at Regulus 1st time
7/25 Venus retrograde near Regulus
7/31 Venus conjunct Regulus 2nd time, Aquarius full moon
8/4 Jupiter and Venus conjunct for the 2nd time at 28 Leo very close to Regulus
8/11 Jupiter arrives at Regulus
8/15 Venus inferior conjunction (Venus transitions to morning star)
10/8 Venus arrives at Regulus for the third time and continues forward
10/25 3rd Venus Jupiter conjunction

Venus also makes aspects with three planets, three times each during its retrograde cycle.

  1. June 28, Aug 19 continuous to Sep 22, the day before Autumn Equinox, Sun into Libra, Venus trines Uranus in Aries. Blessings of friends and community organizations, loves flights, beauty inventions, new hairstyle, astrology readings, extraordinary performances, singers, gifts – especially of the electronic kind! We don’t mind having a great aspect like this three times!
  2. June 30, Aug 19, Sep 21 Inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. These dates are traveling closely with the Trine Uranus dates. Venus in Leo wants love, Chiron wants marriage, but inconjuncts are often divorce due to an askew connection. Things just seem to slip apart. This aspect also calls money and business decisions into question. If timely significant adjustments are made the situation may be saved. Or, just let go.
  3. July 13, Aug 5, Square Saturn in Scorpio, Oct 10 Square Saturn in Sagittarius. In Scorpio, the first two squares, there may be loss of love or money whether stolen, misrepresented, a mistake, or greater expenses. The breakthrough may be not falling for the seduction again, realizing the payoff may not be very much, doing the tough work it takes, admitting reality, reducing expenses. There may be a necessary and natural grieving period. In Sagittarius, your direction may not go as planned, maybe a relief, but soon better! Be careful of over confidence, fearful reactionary over spending. Give it a trial time, modify sensibly. A first step with genuine good intention often leads to another though it may be a challenging passage. Have a backup plan to ease your mind.
As of June 21, many things will not turn out as anticipated, especially ones in the fixed signs, Taurus/Scorpio and Leo/Aquarius. Fixed sign’s purposes are to stabilize, not disrupt, yet some change is a must, as much as the growth from chrysalis to butterfly. Things you deliberately want to be changed, might need some help getting done, so instead of seeking a conclusion, let them ride, continue on and the retrograde will help loosen the roots and knots. What will be will be. Most assuredly, it will be better when all is said and done! Sometimes there is so much transformation you no longer recognize what it was when it all started! Maybe you won’t remember because the new Light has taken your breath away and filled your mind with new beauty and wonder!

Walk in Beauty.

FULL Strawberry Moon ~
Pluto YOD, Jupiter Bow, Grand Fire Trine!
New Moon ~
Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter Super Trine!

May 2015 Sky Map

Full Strawberry Moon ~
Pluto YOD, Jupiter Bow, Grand Fire Trine!
Tuesday June 2 at 9:19 AM Pacific – 11 Sagittarius 49
Full Strawberry Moon

During Mercury Retrograde, the Full Moon, Gemini/Sagittarius Strawberry Moon, is called the Festival of Humanity by some. It’s purpose is to share the Word and Teachings far and wide! Gemini gathers information and communication skills know how. Sagittarius seeks purpose, the far vision that makes it meaningful, gives focus.

♦ Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Retrograde reviews, upgrades, opens doors from opposite directions, making choices more whole and productive. On the immediate basis it can seem frustrating as things keep changing moment to moment, not settling. Fixed signs (Taurus/Scorpio, Leo/Aquarius) and orderly signs (Virgo/Capricorn) often don’t find this multitude of adjustments comfortable; they like their routines, but stay with it, the results will prove worthy though many people will opt not to sign important papers yet.

Some of those adjustments were front and center when Sun, moving forward, and Mercury in reverse, crossed on Saturday the 30th at 9:56 AM Pacific, or, they had a meeting of the minds. Though moving apart now, they have left an invisible trail of thoughts still influencing decisions.

Sun is getting excited as he approaches Mars, a super athlete combination! Running, tennis, biking may all be in the wind in short volleys. But, the Moon in Sagittarius would like to get some distance going! They want to SEE what’s out there! Mars is a Leader, first, takes the initiative! Mars is a rights fighter, in this case, the pen being mightier than the sword! Gemini/Sag is the great storyteller of a very entertaining chapter-by-chapter mythy moral tale embellished with believable facts that make it seem real. Personal new beginnings are near and dear to your heart!

The Moon is opposite Mars, so be careful of wounding words and conversations. Moon can be a tad self righteous in Sagittarius, and by nature, Mars only does what Mars thinks in a hot minute! Mars can be quick, and if the Sun is provoked in its ego, together they all may regret what can’t be taken back. Lucky for us, Moon in Sag is more forgiving. If you are hair trigger yourself, maybe lay a bit low, avoid giving or getting the bee sting. If it is needing saying, long overdue, maybe it will clear the air; change will be quick! The Sun/’Mars exact conjunction isn’t until June 14 at 8:56 AM Pacific, the day Saturn returns into Scorpio. The Full Moon may set off a situation that lasts until then and then some.

♦ The Full Moon axis is just leaving Neptune in its own sign Pisces as the point of the T Square to the axis. Neptune/Pisces is famous for sensitivity, Sun, Mars and Gemini/Sag not so much. The challenge has been to have compassion, empathy, yet with logic, not be swept into doing things that aren’t in your heart. It will still be tempting, perhaps, to run right over the shy person or push a confused person to agree with you, maybe in the interests of ‘saving time’ or getting another person on your side. But that kind of compliance usually unravels later, so take a deep breath, honor others best you can.

You yourself may have had a recent battle of confusion within you or with someone who has. You may still have doubts what to do. It goes from mystical pandemonium to whether to turn right or left! Surrender or jump on it. Get the exercise or meditate. Talk or be silent. Almost always, the answer is a bit of both. The whole function of a Full Moon is separation of opposites yet assimilation, in short, balance, equality. Having skills to do both gives you all your options!

♦ Because the Sun conjuncts Mars, the YOD with Pluto and Jupiter becomes important. Mars and Pluto are in a tight 1 minute of space inconjunct! They are close with Jupiter only a degree away, Mars quickly to sextile Jupiter exactly on the 5th at 4:38 PM Pacific. Mars and Pluto are warriors, but Mars in Gemini with words and a smile, and Pluto in Capricorn very differently with your paycheck and the law! Mars can speak fervently in Pluto’s behalf or devastate Pluto’s reputation. Pluto can fund Mars’ intentions or take it all away. Pluto in Cap has staying power, but Mars bounces back in air sign Gemini. Better to be respectful allies or just leave it alone if things aren’t working, put your energy elsewhere.

Mars sextile Jupiter in Leo is just plain fun and a wins the race! Both are leaders, Jupiter is confident. Mars in Gemini likes new and clever, while Jupiter in Leo goes for center stage and succeeds! You could be swept along with them, taken in or on a trip of a lifetime! Learning is fast and the risk quite tempting! Pluto in Cap may save you from yourself!

Jupiter inconjunct Pluto may light the fires of Hell as it recently has – Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano, Mexico’s Colima Volcano, plus Nepal’s quake! It can be the glamour story of the century, or fizzle so sadly. Jupiter may be crushed by Pluto in Cap’s skepticism, or vindicated by their recognition of the possibilities! Pluto may be annoyed by Jupiter’s endless stories, yet somehow fascinated at the insane potential and secretly astounded by the actual lucky results. Makes them a believer. Truth and consequences for better and worse.

In addition, Mars and Jupiter are both in exciting aspects to Uranus, the planet of universal change and genius! Uranus is in Mars’ sign Aries, split second fast! Jupiter enhances them both giving super lucky decisions! Mega communications, performances of magnitude. Publish, go public, have a grand opening even though Mercury is retrograde! Many successful world famous businesses have it Rx in their charts. Take the seminar; travel with friends. Get pregnant! Fame and Fortune! Mars will make the sextile with Uranus exactly on the 9th at 0:29 AM Pacific. That means the 8th is the action day unless you work at night. Puts a song in your heart! More on Jupiter super trine Uranus!

Jupiter is the lucky one! Here are the action aspects Pacific times and dates:

May 30   9:56 AM    Mercury conjunct Sun
June 2     6:31 PM    Moon trine Jupiter
June 5     4:38 PM    Mars sextile Jupiter

♦ The Jupiter Bow pattern with the Full Moon axis is the whipped cream for the strawberries! The Gemini Sun, as well as Mars, is sextile Jupiter. Sun is the Light, Jupiter theWayshower. Both like to share and teach, strut and play. It’s lucky to be who you are! And Jupiter is Sag’s planet, the sign the Moon is in. It’s a traveling party – on the boat, by train, a caravan. Or it’s a race you will never forget! Moon in Sag is happy go lucky, knows where to go and when. Bring the whole family! Let go the doubts; go for the good.

♦ By a Horary astrology term, Translation of Light, there is a Grand FIRE Trine too! This combination is not nearly in as close in degrees as the Bow, but still a blessing, blessings to come as the planets unfurl like a flower into exact connection with each other! Fire is Spirit personified! Uranus is in first Sign, first Fire sign Aries of Initiation; Jupiter is in Leo, fire sign of the Heart and Love; the Full Moon in Sagittarius is in the sign of the Seer, the great Prophets, the Path. The delight of a new Path with new friends in a new community may fill your Soul.

Be tasty!

New Moon ~
Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter Super Trine!
Tuesday June 16 at 7:05 AM Pacific – 25 Gemini 07

Gemini Depp Breathe Quote
Johnny is a June 9, 1963 Gemini and has Mercury conjunct Venus. No surprise he is often quoted and this is one of his quotes.  See his Chart!

Sun and Moon join, Sun infusing Moon with energy, Light, Moon relaying it on to Earth and us. At one degree opposite the Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius, the messages will be profound! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Gemini is considered the sign of the Word of Spirit, the Breath of Life. Sun is all powerful, Moon has her way, sometimes gentling Sun, giving a feminine blend. Things culminate and are celebrated as the cycle ends, a new one begins. At a tipping point, we are deep in shadow, but invested with potential, seeds of renewal, an innocent child quality. This late degree New Moon forms the last aspect while the Moon is in Gemini, leaving us in a Void of Course period, unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Take some moments to rest, steep in the brew. Be thankful for your breath. Prepare to speak from your Heart.

♦ Speedy Mars figures strongly in the Gemini NEW Moon as it did at the Full Moon! The Sun conjuncted Mars Sunday the 14th at 8:56 AM Pacific, and the Moon is exactly with Mars just an hour before the New Moon at 6:06 AM! Mars is an action planet where Gemini is more the thinker. Mars wants to do more than talk! Mars is a champion of the Word, and a superbly quick writer in Gemini. Talent is in the hands and eye! They are observant and the bringer of News and what’s new. They boldly poke about, leafing through anything and everything, discovery at their fingertips. They gather the data to back up what they say, and lead the way to new thinking, so right for a New Moon! Unasked, they are local adventurers, weaving their intelligence through neighborhoods and families. Independent thinking creates a wave of ideas for sweeping change, yet Mars is off on another tack as soon as a seed has taken hold!

♦ Mercury, Gemini’s planet, squares Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces the third and last time. Until it makes the exact aspect, June 23 at 11:09 AM Pacific, and maybe another three days or so, hold off on important irrevocable decisions or ones you can’t afford to have to change later. Mercury is logical, while Neptune goes by insight, spiritual guidance, empathy. Both are good, but they arrive at conclusions differently. Too compassionate and we may be taken advantage of, suffer sadness. Too logical and we may neglect kindness, cause delay as we think things through. Spiritually we may know what we want, and Mercury helps us get there in the real world by telling others about our dreams so others can know how to help us. Confusion and longing make us crazy, but they are natural stages that keep doors open while we are undecided and keep us going even when we don’t know how! See Mercury Retrograde!

♦ Mercury sextiles Venus in Leo. It will hold this aspect until exact for many days since Mercury is moving slowly after turning Direct June 11. The exact aspect won’t be made until July 5 at 1:19 AM Pacific. So research what you will do, but wait to make a decision until a few days after June 23, after the square with Neptune is over. Otherwise, the sweetest loving communications are intended. Appreciation, affection, gifts are given. Time to make pretty. Great design ideas, color choices, lovely remodeling, getting becoming hairstyles. You might pay a little more, but it’s worth it, makes you feel great! Let the breath flow….

Mercury is closely coming trine with the North Node in Libra! Libra is the next air sign, this one of relationships. How we say what’s up makes all the difference. The North Node is where we are a bit shy, still learning to balance with the opposite sign, in this case independent Aries. We need to know the good ways to be independent within relationships, to be ok with difference, be true to ourselves and let others be true to themselves. Trines usually are successful. At worst they are lazy and take things for granted and nothing happens at all. Sigh. Be conscious and take advantage of your opportunity to offer someone your regard.

♦ Jupiter and Uranus are now in the same degree! It is seven-days-close to the final exact super trine with Uranus June 22!!! We have been in it for months. The first was Sep 25, the second March 3. Jupiter enhances, is known for huge growth, expansion, wisdom, seeing the trends of time. Uranus is strange change, enlightened genius, explosions (like volcanoes and lightening), world community, computers and the internet, everything electric, wind turbine energy generators, flight! This is a classic fame & fortune combination. Publishing goes out to the multitudes. Grants and investors can be amazingly generous. Travel is easy and extraordinary at the same time. Research reveals some brilliant cures or incredible information long awaited. Make hay!

WESAK FULL Flower Moon ~ Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow!
Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Make it so.
