Wesak Full Flower Moon!

Venus Grand Water Trine, TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis!

Tuesday May 29 at 7:19 AM Pacific, 8 Sagittarius/Gemini 10

Gemini Full Flower Moon 2018

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29 in 2018! Please join a celebration in your area as fits your beliefs.

The second retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is followed by our Wesak Full Flower Moon spanning Sagittarius to Gemini. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. 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 psychic believer and dreamer 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 be taking a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time.

This Full Moon, the trine is especially blessed since Venus is joining them, making a Grand Water Trine! She is coming in at 11 Cancer and will trine Jupiter then Neptune exactly June 1 and 2! Jupiter can be an over honest good-time Charlie, yet in Scorpio sees deeply into our psyches, our deepest hurts and greatest powers. And makes us laugh anyway. Neptune in his own sign Pisces can seem oblivious, oozing along with no particular preference, but when on his feet, the whole Universe is tuned in and turned ON! He makes music beyond words that calls to every molecule in your body! You want to save the World. Venus in Cancer loves oh, so tenderly and is aware of every nuance of feelings. She has the softest touch, cradles you in her arms. She both prepares you to face your demons and comforts you when you have. She assists with memories, the subtle notes that call your Soul. She makes you care again and, after any crying is done, has the business skills to put you on the map! Jupiter has the funding, and Neptune has the Spirit!

The sacred journey is being planned; multilingual Gemini is spreading the Word! The recent Jupiter/Neptune trine, May 25 Pacific, was at 16 degrees, and stays close in degrees until the third and last one Aug 19, 2018 at 15 degrees. Though not in close degrees with the Full Moon, this Full Moon is the first within this span of Jupiter and Neptune traveling together. This is a period of possible dreams come true! Do some serious thinking May 29 through June 2 about what you would like to see happen. Set up the steps to be taken. Let it develop and grow. See more!

Gemini and Sagittarius, mind and meaning! 

Moon in Sagittarius runs away from home – and sometimes the grass really is greener! Already the little explorer instinctively knows there is much to observe, learned, find the greater meaning of. Philosophy and ethics are important. There is confidence and with big natural smiles they attract the help they need and travel in safety spinning memorably tall tales along the way. A broad perspective brings wisdom and justice. They are great athletes and winning gamblers! Their mothers may read to them from the very beginning, homeschooling no surprise.

Sun in Gemini is a strong quick thinker, speaks the words of the heart! Geminis cheer us to expand our thinking. Fathers have a special way of taking our hand, walking us along, listening to us. There is a radar for sincerity, knows when we are afraid, or in pain. In his huge capacity of experience, he is there when we go awry and lose our center amongst the amazing array of information we encounter. He shares his facts and covers the bases, is multifaceted, sometimes ambidextrous. There are so many possibilities! He is highly aware how important touch is, holds us close, yet encourages us to think for ourselves, shine our own light as we venture forth.

In the immediate background, the North Node and Saturn are at 7 degrees, the Full Moon just past them at 8 degrees. The North Node in Leo sextiles the Gemini Sun, trines the Moon. Both of those are classically positive aspects, opportunities for the Sun as the Node in the Sun’s sign Leo lights the way with courage and even bigger thinking! Makes you feel good to be your most glorious self! The Node invites the Sagittarius Moon to step forward as a coach with leadership stories based on personal experience. Nothing like real stories to inspire us to take that chance. If we fail at first, we know we can try again with a slightly different tilt! Gemini knows there are endless options; evolution is happening every moment!

Mercury is at 29 Taurus, the last degree, about to go 0 Gemini! All last degree points have a sense of maturity, finality, ending, hopefulness that the foundation is strong, ready for the next step of the journey. 29 Taurus is a little more serious being at the degree of the Pleiades, the Weeping Sisters. Also it rules the throat and strangling and hanging are not so good an ending. So be clear about how your life is heading. If you start feeling suffocated, at the end of your rope, time to realign! Prepare for stable background work that will hold the promise of your future.

Gemini, the next sign, is the Sun’s sign this Full Moon, and Mercury is Gemini’s planet, so this Mercurial transition is important. Mercury is semisextile the wild card Uranus, then sextile Chiron. Mercury and Uranus both have to do with communications. Mercury is your personal thinking. Uranus is collective thinking – humanity, the Internet! Uranus is now in Taurus, so we think of Gaia, the environment of our bodies and Souls. It helps to keep us grounded as evolution is speeded up. Chiron offers opportunities to access healing informations, teaching options, business connections, meeting fast thinkers like himself! Stand up with both eyes open! As one teacher said, Where your focus goesyour energy flows. Another way of thinking of this is Mind over Matter!

TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis! One person summarizes, ‘The eastern royal star Aldebaran, the star of illumination, is directly across the zodiac from Antares, the star of anger, pride and revenge. This is the only exact opposition of two major stars!’ They are also two of the four Archangel stars, the four Royal Stars of Persia, the Four Guardians of Heaven. Ferocity required! In about 4 hours the Moon will be opposite Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47 and in less than 2 days, the Sun will conjunct Aldebaran, the most famous of the four Archangel stars, represents St Michael! Aldebaran is God’s military commander and opposite his nemesis Antares at 9 Sagittarius 46! Antares is the Watcher of the West, guardian of the doors to the underworld at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Shiver.

Robson says Aldebaran, in the constellation Taurus, gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. Researcher Ebertin says Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods, shipwrecks. Acknowledged and leading position, but will make enemies through whom danger will threaten. Extraordinary energy. Bernadette Brady says you will face moral dilemmas that challenge your integrity. Avoid temptation to compromise.

Antares is said to make people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. Clearly, this is a ‘be careful’ star.

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! 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.

Blessed be, you and the Buddha. May your MoonLight be flowerful!

NEW MOON – Two T Squares, Uranus and Chiron!

Wednesday June 13 at 12:43 PM Pacific, 22 Gemini 44

Gemini New Moon A Dark Sky studded with Stars Dark Purple Roses and Dewdrops

A dark New Moon sky studded with stars is similar to these dark purple Roses with galaxies of dewdrops.

This will make the last of 6 lunar events in a row that we have had planets at 29 degrees, the last degree of their signs. Both in Aries it was Chiron at 29 degrees Pisces. In Taurus it was Uranus at 29 Aries, then Mars 29 Capricorn. The May 29 Gemini Full Moon it was Mercury at 29 Taurus, and now it’s Venus at 29 Cancer! Finishings it has been, on the brink of new beginnings. In order, Chiron, Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Venus.

Venus at 29 Cancer sums up Mother’s love, our role as a child. She started out as but a baby girl herself. Her own Mother did as best she could. Maybe she was unable and let others do what they could. Maybe she came from a long line of dedicated capable loving Mothers who passed on that heritage and that baby girl became a wonderful Mother too. Zodiacally our charts may be easy with our Mums, partially or wholly challenging, or we were just born to do destiny on our own, Mum supplying the birth. Venus in Cancer can give a child a profound love and admiration for our Mum, or a knowing that we must love ourselves as we are even if Mum doesn’t. Venus in Cancer can give an abiding love for femininity, women, the Matriarchy, our home and community, culinary prowess, instinctual nurturing, Mother Moon! This is an important primordial placement for self-esteem, for a good quality of life.

Furthermore, Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! See more below…

Moon and Sun are at 22 Gemini 44! Love those double numbers! So apropos for Gemini, sign of the Twins! I’m always in awe of this Moon/Sun merger! Bright as Sun is, Moon is there to shelter and nurture! Sun reminds her to take some time for herself and brightens her day! Moon in Gemini is careful with her words, has a lot she has collected to say. Mercury is in Moon’s sign Cancer, as Moon is in Mercury’s sign Gemini, mutual reception. Touching family memories are shared, more images taken for the album. Mercury remembers the dates and details, who was where, when and why, family lineage, making Moon quite happy to have the whole story. Venus in Cancer too, remembers sweet anecdotes of gatherings and who brought that delicious food and recipe! Sun is gallant and heroic with his words. He inspires all with his dramatic experiences and reenactments. The whole combination is heartfelt.

Moon and Sun recently inconjuncted Pluto in Capricorn, but make no close upcoming aspects to any planet. Darker factors of the past may need a warm gathering to heal difficulties that have lingered. And it’s good to get clear that was then, this is now. Don’t let emotional or psychic hangovers tarnish the goodness we have now. We have outgrown many old fears and built a more sturdy mindfulness now. If it isn’t much better now, see to it.

Two T Squares!

A T Square has a baseline of two or more planets opposite each other with another planet or planets equidistantly placed between them at approximately 90 degrees, the midpoint. It’s the very function of equidistance that gives additional potency! The Midpoint factor receives equally, no value difference. So the two powers merge without prejudice – neither submerged nor overshadowed by the other. The Magi astrologers say the midpoint is a fusion or melding together of the baseline planets’ symbolisms. If there is a planet(s) at the midpoint that energy activates the point planet and the point planet radiates to the baseline planets! Potency! Two expert sources are Reinhold Ebertin, German midpoint master – dead on interpretations, and the Magi Society astrologers. Learn more about midpoints at Cafe Astrology.

Any two planet(s) make two midpoints, one on either side of their baseline. There can be a planet there or not. Since they can be on either side of the baseline, there is a completely different sequence of signs. For example, our fixed T Square has Uranus in Taurus at its T point, making the sign sequence Aquarius, Taurus, Leo. If instead the T point planet(s) was in Scorpio, the sign sequence would be Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, a very different tone! And though there happens to be no planet there, that midpoint in Scorpio is still a sensitive point. One of your Scorpio planets might fill that spot.

The midpoint planet(s) can act as sender of the collective energy of the base group. It can act as a probe, the rep of the base group. It can seek fertile territory, as a ‘dowser,’ seek information sources to receive from, channel home to the people, act as a collector. It probably can do both simultaneously. As soon as information is received, it changes the substance of the search! The search instantly has greater capacity, becomes new and scans wider and further! It’s a living process.

In everyday traditional astrology oppositions have their maximum differences, the widest possibilities of reach. Squares break things down, break up, and break through. The mid planet(s), the planet(s) at the T point, interrupt the status quo the two opposite points may have settled at. There can be a surge of energy as we let go! Grabbing new ground makes sense. Jam the wedge in and keep the gates open. Take a good look and see if you want to go there, where you want to go. Get up and ride!

One T is the predominantly fixed T Square spanning the Nodes Aquarius to Leo, Venus at 29 Cancer at the North Node, Mars at the South Node in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus at the point. Fixed signs are meant to anchor and stabilize important factors in our lives. They often stand true as ones we can depend on when life is chaotic.

Venus makes the link that makes the T Square. She is at 29 Cancer, the powerful last degree of the sign! Cancer is a cardinal sign, all the rest of the factors in the T are in fixed signs Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Cardinal signs get things started and keep them moving! Fixed signs stabilize the achievement. Venus enters Leo 2 hours after the New Moon; Leo holds the Light forever in his heart! In Leo she makes the exact square to Uranus the day after the New Moon.

Venus in Cancer loves her nest, her family’s culture, tradition, homespun art. She stands for women, children, the young, the feminine. Uranus needs freedom, is avant garde, the Awakener before his time, concerned for humanity at large, planetary matters. His friends and associates, international gatherings are where his attention is. The internet is his tool of choice. In Taurus he’s a little more calm about it, and has some unexpected patience, but change there will be. The homestead, the animals, food sources, clothing – elemental commodities, our bodies. The definition of Beauty will change. We will be attracted for different reasons than before and want different things. As an ally, Venus will lend her Grace, give the personal caring human touch when Uranus doesn’t seem to care. Uranus likely sees how important her presence is, even more than she does, though he may not say so because so much is on his mind. Be good if he would let us know where we stand with each other… He’s so erratic, Venus may find it hard to find a moment to give praise for his works. Take some time for personal exchanges. Things will go better for it.

The North/South Node on the Leo/Aquarius axis is the baseline of the T. They are always retrograde, so they are going back to meet Venus, and they too will be squaring Uranus shortly. Venus will be at the North Node, the node that we are working to strengthen, to balance with the South Node of the past. The south in Aquarius means we worked with powerful groups of people before. The north, supported by Venus’s blessing, in Leo helps us keep our own counsel, regardless what a group wants us to think. We must stay with our heart, be good in our own personal way, put our stamp on it that others may recognize that special Light! Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is the planet of unique, so there is harmony. Him in Taurus may seem oh, so, slow, to that S Node in Aquarius, but too fast, getting before our time, has prices to pay too. Take it easy, find your rhythm and right timing.

The North Node and Saturn at 6 degrees are separating from an inconjunct. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is another calming planet that develops self-discipline. The node considered Saturn’s guidance at its neighboring sign to the S node. Saturn wants to use the past with moderation to achieve the work of the heart at the N node.

Mars in Aquarius was just activating the retrograde South Node and is well past the square with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mars has a bold presence that isn’t usually easily dismissed or quickly forgotten! He moves swiftly to take action that makes change that can’t be undone so the initiation of the process is assured. We may have hoped for such a thing to happen for a long time. It may not start as we anticipated, so you gotta be fast on your feet and leave that delete button alone! Give it a chance, wait to see what happens and what might come of it!

The other is a cardinal T Square formed by baseline planets Mercury in Cancer opposite Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Chiron takes the point in Aries! If we have Uranian change, we need a healer and teacher to let go the past and open us to future potential! Cardinal signs get us started and keep us in motion. Sometimes they have the ideas that we need the fixed signs to anchor and nurture in place. Other times they sweep in, clear the debris of old thinking, give away the old stuff in the garage, make new arrangements, inspire us to work updated ventures!

Mercury in Cancer questions you gently, but reminds you to take responsibility to self-nurture and kindly speak to help others. You know how Cancers are accused of being crabby, or a little shrill. Well that happens to the best of us at times. We sometimes forget how others are so sensitive even if they seem not to be. Mercury can give instructions about caregiving, mothering, how to listen to your parents and understand they have feelings too. If you ask a Mercury in Cancer what they think they will say, I feel… It’s good to have both logic and sensitivity. Mercury in Cancer may do a lot more listening than you would expect, even be a bit shy.

Oh contraire with Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He wants to get things done in the least time with the least effort at the least expense. He is Father to Cancer the Mother though she may be the one he bows to! Moms are the cosmic authority no amount of credentials apply to! But who pays the rent?! Saturn gathers us up, goes over the project, makes assignments per our individual skills, checks on our work. He makes sure the client is kept in the loop and secures further work, makes follow ups. And pays our wages. He’s a terrific role model for the youngers, and often makes arrangements for our eldears. (My word.)

Chiron gives us the boot! Aries is no sleeping dog! Woof! Walkies?! You bet! More like at a run. He darts back and forth between Cancer and Capricorn! Cancer is at home but needs to get out and about, inspire the kids! Capricorn, a traditionalist, needs to be shown the new ways quickly, showing how they make a better product, working procedures, more profit. Chiron is good at business and Aries is the leader consultant! Chiron is the healer and teaches how to live well. Old wounds are tended lovingly or lovingly impatiently because he knows we can do it. So we get up and go! And, in Aries, we just plumb leave them behind, even forgot them! Relationships sure take a turn for the better as we are able to put more positive energy in the present than in the sadness of past losses! Aries is the hero, our inspiration, activation, the first! We can do it!

There are three factors linking the two Ts! The Ts are working together!!!

  1. Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! Square Uranus she pleads with him to spare the innocent. His job is big, to affect vast numbers of people at once, and sometimes there are casualties. He does what he must. But leader to leader, there are considerations in the grand scheme of things. Kindness can make THE difference. She trines Chiron, but out of sign, Cancer to Aries, water to fire! Aries may make a run for it, being allergic to someone asking him to wait. His kind of responsibility is to be there first, help instantly. She may think he should be more kind, follow up, but he’s wise to know himself and have someone else do that follow up part. She herself is about to go into Leo, the next fire sign, and they will be more easy together, though Aries sometimes thinks Venus is just too soft, and in Leo perhaps a bit lazy, spoiled, selfish. Could be true, but ultimately she finds she can give and is a loving teacher with all kinds of heart! Together they can be magnificent! From a Cancer foodie to an athlete!
  2. As Venus comes forward, the Leo North Node, the N Node always retrograde, is going back to trine Chiron. N Nodes are the new territory, compared to the S Node representing what we did so well we did it bad or overdid it. Seeking a better balance, it is scary to leave an old familiar way. We could make a fool of ourselves, be clumsy, a bit awkward. And what Leo ever wanted that?! Humbling, I say, especially since a few days ago the S Node was with Mars in Aquarius, gleefully up to his old tricks with the gang! But it does feel good to be on his own in Leo, just be himself with no expectations or feeling obliged to the group. Do something, do nothing. Deep breath and be happy.
  3. Mercury, in the cardinal T square, just made a sextile with Uranus, the point of the fixed T Square, tying the two T Squares together. Sextiles connect mixed but favorable elements, in this case earth and water. Earth channels let water flow. Uranus is the most long term factor active in this chart. Both planets have to do with mind signs, Gemini, what’s in our head, and Uranus higher mind of collective humanity, genius and evolution, awakening! Mercury has the information, Uranus has the friends to carry it all over the world! Internet.

Saturn is retrograding back to square Chiron, but Chiron retrogrades before Saturn gets there. They do get close and the sniff factor is there, but no consummation. The worst fears make you take notice, but won’t happen, but they do indicate what could. There may be business and relationship difficulties that need attention. Health troubles are possible. Could be delays. Saturn is working hard in his sign, and Chiron has some new solutions. Give them a listen. Things don’t have to get dire to make excellent changes. See what you can do. You’ve been warned.

Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter is retrograde, in close aspect until the third and last trine Aug 19. 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. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! 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.

Use these powerful T Squares standing up! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, Chiron is the Healer/Teacher. Sounds perfect!

New SuperMoon!  Saturn square Chiron, Mercury, GALACTIC CENTER!

Wednesday April 26, 5:16 AM Pacific at 6 Taurus 27! 

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

Hang onto your socks, Earthlings! In celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009, NASA’s Great Observatories — the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy! This image takes up about 1 degree across the sky. The Galactic Center is the white area to the right just below center.

First of four 2017 supermoons, a new supermoon! The new moons on April 26, May 25 and June 24 all qualify as supermoons. Tides are higher. Spirits have more volume! In Taurus that can mean more need for closeness, candles and romance, good food and lots of it, or an urge to secure our resources! We might exercise more or start a New Moon plan to do so!

This Taurus New Moon opens gentle doors to breaking down the barriers of the April 30 Saturn square Chiron healing. Chiron doesn’t always want healing, or give up secrets of the healing arts easily. Not all healing is comfortable as we let go, shift our lives, make adjustments. Sometimes we lose close relationships. Careers and businesses ventures may be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Recovery can be hard work, but we step out of the crucible over the threshold, a new person, no longer vulnerable to that old condition. Taurus can be the calming balm, soothing. It gives us fortitude, patience, determination to best the odds, endure until we are able to stand up again, to live in better ways.

Saturn in Sagittarius is retrograde, going back to make his second trine with Uranus May 18! An old Master, he is experienced, he knows that Uranian change is smart evolution, inevitable. It is a relief to old stunted stilted tired thinking. It frees us to a greater range of ideas, opportunities made more whole by a multitude of community contribution! The gains are so more worth it than the cost of the change to make them! Long term payoffs. Productive friends and associates. Sciences flourish.

Mercury is retrograding as well, going back to conjunct Uranus! In Aries it is fireworks and inspiration like never before! Every person is spontaneously independently giving their part! This is an outspoken crowd! Saturn in Sagittarius, trining them both, has important serious opinions. Uranus is the rebel ahead of his time, Aries is the volatile Leader of Light, Mercury is the Word – in this case shouted! I suspect the April 29 Climate March will have super impact!

The GALACTIC CENTER figures strongly in our New Moon chart! Saturn is at 27 Sagittarius, one degree of the GC! Yes, he squares Chiron, but also trines Uranus at 25 Aries, and Mercury at 26 Aries, they in lucky trine with the GC! Uranus, ruling the heavens, IS our galactic planet, and Mercury of mind is considered exalted in Uranus’s sign Aquarius. Mercury with Uranus is positively brilliant! Ideas ahead of their time, research that amazes the world. Mercury wants to talk, download! Probably intergalactic at this point! Just tune the dial! Speech, communications are emphasized! It can be gibberish to genius, higher learning in progress. Breathless with keen excitement, electrified fingers reach out to touch! We are alive and transforming ourselves and others at once!

Mercury is retrograde in Aries. Though fast in Aries, Mercury retrograde is also reviewing, turning it’s thoughts, going over what was done, might have been missed, what to do, how to do it better and be more to the point until May 3! He turns forward then and definitely puts things into action, trials and finishing details until he enters Taurus again May 15. From then on there needs to be visible progress. Aries is mind; Taurus is matter. Make time to think and be ready to use the ideas you have now for good results to come.

Mercury and Mars, the planet of Aries, are in mutual reception, in each other’s signs. With one eye over the shoulder, the other looking straight ahead, right between your eyes, sequences are instantly understood. With Mars in Gemini, the vision is all encompassing, scans are comprehensive and as fast as a blink! Trust your flash of insight; it is gifted. Quickly document all aspects with as many outlets as possible so there will be as much distribution and continuance as possible. Breathe out the Word!

In the beginning it will take many Souls to carry all the parts of this great body of knowledge. Each one will need to be free and independent enough to do their part. Each part needs to be protected until it is anchored while still pure. It is important that these Light Workers remain unclouded by popular thought.

These aspects lend an empowering background and meaning to the New Moon. At 6 Taurus, the New Moon makes no major aspects yet is vitally important to being a part of the fabric of the greater scenario. She acts as an unobstructed channel. Taurus stands in strength, able to support and sustain the platform for the massive amount of information that is coming through. Impeccable.

There are three planets in spiritual PiscesNeptune, Pisces’ planet, Chiron the Healer/Teacher, and Venus, herself at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac! At this time, these three hold the shimmering living vision that permeates our Being. Art and beauty, music, attract us, keep us tuned to deeper knowing. Neptune calls for compassion. Chiron repairs our sorrows and Soul, boosts us to the next level with its teaching.

Venus holds a special point not only because she is at the last degree of the zodiac, but she is at the degree of the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters! The Zuni of New Mexico call the Pleiades the Seed Stars; the Japanese call them Subaru, meaning ‘unite.’ They are in the shoulder of the bull, the TAURUS constellation, and Taurus is one of Venus’ signs! Alcyone is their main star. You can imagine what kind of troubles could ensue due to 7 sisters! Venus is susceptible to greed, envy, possessiveness, selfishness and self indulgence. On the other hand, 7 feminine forces to your favor wouldn’t be all bad, LOL! Can you imagine the strength in the shoulder of the Bull?!! Venus is a proponent of the arts, love and kindness, self esteem, clear values, and attracts money!

In a few days Venus concludes her mission here, goes into Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, Friday the 28th, 6:18 AM Pacific. Minutes later, Mercury then conjuncts Uranus in Aries at 7:50 AM! A feisty and zesty morning! Go to breakfast with your confidants and colleagues! Ask for their support with your causes; give yours to theirs as you can.

The Second Labor of Hercules

Alone and still filled with deep distress, Hercules must rescue a sacred bull [Taurus] from its intended sacrifice to Minos, King of Crete and deliver it to the mainland. On the island, where the bull is captive, is a vast maze, which can lure the adventurous to their bewilderment. Here, following the gleaming star shining from its forehead, Hercules pursues the bull from place to place. Single-handed, he captures it and rides it like a horse through the waters to the mainland, surrounded by the seven Sisters [Pleiades constellation]. He leads it to the Holy Place and delivers it safely to its guardians.

Today, the goal is attained through group effort. This group is ruled by Taurus, and to it that divine Taurian energy brings ‘illumination and the attainment of the vision’. This group is, figuratively speaking, the ‘bull, rushing forward upon a straight line with its one eye fixed upon the goal and beaming light’. That goal is not the goal of Self-illumination, for that lies far behind; it is the goal of providing a centre of light within the world and of holding up the vision to the sons of wo/men.  …excerpted and paraphrased from Lucis Trust

This is the annual merger of Moon and Sun in Taurus. Let it be your abiding guide. Center, focus, stay strong in your core. You may not be Hercules, but each of us is a point of Light. Keep it burning exactly your special way.

The Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon opens our wings to the May 17/18 companion aspects, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus!

Optimistic Jupiter in Libra visions as far off in time and space as it can! Neptune IS time and space, boundless. An inconjunct aspect invites exploration, peripheral vision, a detour to another dimension! Diversions, distractions and divisions. It can seem things are out of control, but comparisons are made, sensitivity is registered. Jupiter instinctively looks for the best. At any given time things only go so far as new cloaks are able to be tried on. Go lightly as options are considered. Rather than immediate stern defenses, ask questions and invite answers. There may be confusion that seems like mindlessness, but things get sorted out in time. If it is an emergency, stamp your foot and get everyone back to center focus ASAP!

Saturn makes the trine with Uranus May 18. He is the planet of time, age, wisdom earned by experience. Saturn employs boundaries for prevention and protection, regulates flow and distribution. Uranus is the planet of freedom, inevitable evolution, sweeping change, the heavens, sudden shifts of consciousness! There are no boundaries! Saturn linked with Uranus by a trine of success, can ride the plane, shift to different levels of awareness, bring the information home and put the amazing inventions to work for all! Universal blessings. Saturn sees the reality of change and picks what will work most usefully in current times. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The whole system is advanced fortuitously. Remarkable!

Neither of these aspects may happen with flashing lights, but soon enough, here and there, results will become evident and the tide will change. What once were isolated outposts become networked teams. A less volatile resistance, more practical posture will be taken as new ideas, cultural integration, proves to work.

What does POP is that Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius May 8 to June 1, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our Milky Way Galaxy! If you are so lucky to have factors within a degree or two of that number, what a mighty potential there can be if you are ready for it! Sagittarius usually does well with Aries and Leo, Libra and Aquarius, sometimes Gemini.

Moon Scorpio, Sun Taurus! What a mighty combo, fixed signs. Taurus, of Earth herself, immovable, organic, substantial. Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld with all his secrets. How can you change what you can’t see? Both are senses oriented, Taurus sensuality, Scorpio sexuality! Taurus holds position, anchors, while Scorpio ignites the Kundalini fire at the base of your spine! If you can’t see it, maybe you can feel it!

It may be a delicate situation. The huge red giant star Aldebaran holds the fire in the right eye of the Bull! If Taurus pushes, Scorpio retreats. Scorpio tries to circle around behind, but Taurus has always lived in the pasture and senses predator presence. And with their Taurus outwaiting solidarity, hooves and horns, they don’t be pushed much either. Scorpio’s star is Antares, also reddish, and has the cat eyes, Shaula and Lesath, in its tail! A scorpion may be small, but can be deadly and accurate. Powerful guardians. As a therapist they can change your life with few to no words at all! Symbolically Scorpio sees over, within, behind and beyond – the Past, current status, consequences of your actions. If your Taurus-Scorpio union has a mutual purpose, use each other’s powers wisely toward your goal. Let the rest be.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto in Capricorn! It’s the power to use the old black magic! It can be charismatic, sneaky in the kitchen, love bites in the bedroom, killer with real estate, a high end thief, a healer of extreme suffering. Emotions run the gamut, from none and numb to inundation. Children and family, both Mom and Dad, weigh in strongly. Career may be easily achieved, or obsessive and wickedly never ending, never enough, or simply a lifelong dedication!

Sun trine Pluto, is a powerful wealth aspect. So many famous people have this aspect – not in these signs necessarily. Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, and slinky Shakira. Also tragic Princess Grace Kelly, scary Bruce Lee, Christina RicciColin FarrellCharles BronsonSteven Seagal, Cate Blanchette, Francois Mitterand, Rupert Murdoch, Buster Keaton and George Sand. It’s kind of an odd combination in that the Sun is the Light, and Pluto was the God of the underworld, of death. But it also brings personal wealth because the Sun is the planet of Self, and puts its whole heart in it! To be charismatic, along with other factors in your chart, attracts recognition. Pluto can be perfectionist, obsessed, and what it decides to do, it does well, fearlessly. In Capricorn these days, it is working with sciences, time, elders, takes super responsibility (or none at all). It is political, tending to the conservative side. Works with laws, rekindles research to heal long standing diseases. It’s a shamanic powerhouse. 

As Saturn backs away from his April 30 square with Chiron, Moon is coming in to trine Chiron. Chiron may have felt a little chapped by Saturn’s demands, square realities to be faced, and bruised a bit by his judgments. Moon in Scorpio is here to soothe Chiron’s wounds. Moon loves you no matter what, Scorpio is not afraid you might bite. Scorpio wants to know where it hurts so it can know what to do. And Sun lightens things up, sextiles Chiron with a calming peace in Taurus, brings the flowers and herbal lotions. As they give you things to do that you do well, you perk up, get your strength and honor back.

Mars in Gemini is about to square Neptune in Pisces, then pushes its trine with Jupiter in Libra! First there is some time in Neptune’s foggy dew, searching for your lost keys. Who knows what other marvels have presented themselves, mysteries have been solved?! Or maybe it is good exploring underwater and you are even a little overwhelmed by all there is to see. And what dreams! At 13, 13 and 14 degrees, these three planets are closely linked. Understanding and a burst into action and spreading the good word are almost simultaneous! There is sudden insight, a breakthrough to compassion, and seeing who to connect with to carry the messages, all at once. Suffering is a strong motivator. Time to let go of addictions, get some exercise, turn the tables. Get in some tennis time, step into some new dancing shoes! Hang out with healthy allies!

Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are still in each other’s signs, a mutual reception! Mercury is direct, moving forward now, and has just electrically conjuncted Uranus the second and last time yesterday! We are reminded to put the brilliance of that connection we had at the New Moon into channels of fulfillment now at this Full Moon. In sympathy with Mars of leadership and action, we are inspired and it happens! Easier than expected!

Every single planet is engaged at this Buddha Birthday Full Flower Moon! It is pregnant in Spirit, linking between each of us, with our peers, partners and equals, to our community and the world at large!

May your life be filled with sweet connections!

Orlando Shooting 2016 Astrology Chart Shots Fired

We have been having alot of outer planet connections! Astrology is complex, so how do we predict events? Especially if we don’t know the charts of persons whose charts connect with those events. And there are so many humans.

This chart of June 12, 2016 at the time of first shots fired, 2:02 AM Eastern, gives many indications. Some charts give little indication, being more in connection with the person’s chart. Most events are a combination of both.

I had been expecting something sad in this time frame because the Saturn square Neptune was the primary aspect at the time of the Nov 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris 17 days before the Paris climate talks. 130 people were killed in Paris. There was so much grief around the world. Many people felt devastated, hopeless. The outdoor Climate Rally was cancelled after the bombings, so people put their shoes there, including Pope Francis, UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon and Marion Cotillard. Saturn squares Neptune the second time June 17, only 5 days after the Orlando shooting. It is the primary aspect of this event as well. The planets will square the third and last time Sept 10, the day after Jupiter enters Libra Sept 9.

To me, this Orlando gay nightclub attack was so very sad because it was on vulnerable people who already have difficult lives struggling for safety, the love of their families, dignity, equality. Saturn wants to bring respect and order out of Neptune chaos and obscurity, get over denial. And there are times when after working hard, it’s good to just let your hair down, or just have fun on the weekend! This is so sad after last year’s right to marriage was won after so many long years.

Moon and Sun are always elemental key factors and they were square, at 90 degree odds from Moon in Virgo to Sun in Gemini. Though ordinarily a challenging square between them would be super emotional, Virgo and Gemini, both Mercury signs, are more logical. Omar Mateen, the gunman, was said to be utterly “cool and calm” expressing his sentiments while he talked by phone to law enforcement officials.

Mercury itself is at 29 Taurus, within a degree of the current position of the Pleiades, its central star, fixed star Alcyone at 0 Gemini. The Pleiades are the 7 sisters. In some traditional horary astrology they were called the weeping sisters and 29 Taurus indicated something to weep about, at worst, mass suicide. 29 is the last degree of any sign, a maturity, an ending, a finality. It can also be at the end of one’s rope. Something had to give. The 7 Sisters were also thought to have to do with homosexuality.

The Sun was with Venus, one who values himself, sometimes above others. Venus at 23 degrees Gemini was exact sextile, a harmonious aspect, with Uranus at 23 Aries. Uranus ranges from genius to insanity, and in Aries is proactive and generally unpredictable and fast at it. Mars has been coming retrograde, reawakening past passions, closer and closer to the opposite midpoint between them in Scorpio. Scorpio loves the night and stealth, is a planet of death as well as healing. The three form a Yod, a Y, with Mars of war at its point, the emphasis.

Since Mars is retrograde and close to its turning forward point, it is in station, holding this chafing inconjunct with Uranus for 37+ days. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5. Now, allowing a 3 degree range, it started toward the second one on June 6, and will make the second exact aspect June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. The inconjunct is continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. There’s no let up. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Mars is bullets and triggers, a declaration of independence, fury. In Scorpio, what could be the compassionate therapist, can also be a dark killer with no mercy. Flavored by Uranus, an air planet, there can be a freedom from conscience, a loner, a radical and shocking situation. Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries can give a sense of being free to act as compelled. This Mars at 25 Scorpio was retrograding slowly, almost at its stand still station turning point it would form at 23 Scorpio. It was within one degree of Omar’s birth chart 24 Scorpio Sun and holding focus on the square to Omar’s Mars at 23 Aquarius. This echoes the Mars inconjunct Uranus, Uranus being the Aquarian planet. His intense violence is no surprise.

Scorpio Stellium Orlando Shooter Omar Mateen
[Mateen’s birthtime is unknown. This chart is calculated for midday (noon) and 0 Aries Ascendant used. Since we don’t have a time of birth, the Moon’s degree can be ± 6+ degrees of the position in this chart. That means it could be in Taurus or Gemini. I think it is in Taurus, possibly closer to the fixed star Alcyone degree in the Pleiades that Mercury was at in the sky June 12.]

He had a 4 planet stellium in Scorpio, one of those planets being Pluto, Scorpio’s own planet. Venus one degree of Pluto can have no fear of death, consider it a blessing, the right thing to happen, even a mercy killing. Venus and Mercury both retrograde considered what to do over and over again, a true obsessive/compulsive taking things to the extreme.

The June 12 Moon in Virgo was also coming to inconjunct Uranus. Virgo is more calculating than helpful sometimes. With Uranus in Aries it could be technical support. Uranus of fame to the masses is the point planet in this second Yod. In Aries, action and leadership, it is a force to be reckoned with. Mars at the other Yod point in Scorpio quietly but powerfully at the other side of the chart, confirms and it happens.

Saturn square Neptune was preceded by a 3 months long Jupiter square Saturn. To Mateen’s thinking, all that is holy in Saturn, the Law, spiritual law, was challenged by, perhaps even laughed or scoffed at, disappointed by Jupiter. Jupiter is confident and good natured while Saturn is official, serious, less fun or funny, susceptible to being made to look the fool. As any good Saturnian knows, sometimes you just have to wait it out to see who’s right, which has the staying power it takes. But if you feel violated and hopeless long enough…. Both squares have ethical issues from traditional law, to the opinionated newly converted true believer, to those who haven’t a clue and could care less. Saturn, the traditionalist, may see the world crumbling around them, be deeply angered by law breakers and besmirchers, wants to make its mark, so takes the law into his own hands – a rogue and vigilante defender. Omar Mateen was right in his Saturn Return at 29 years old. Saturn is in his chart at 10 degrees Sagittarius; Saturn June 12 was at 12 degrees retrograding back to 9 degrees, making a long station on his Saturn. He felt strong and pure in his convictions. Long term aspects like this build up, sometimes to a breaking point. Sometimes they are tired, other times they are tireless and determined.

Jupiter trine Pluto can be super healing, untold wealth, or mass murder. Jupiter in Virgo is careful and organized. Pluto in Capricorn is deadly clever, focused, may be a paid assassin. Jupiter is lucky, and in the hands of harm, succeeds at that too. It took officials 3 hours to stop Omar Mateen.

The moment the chart Ascendant hit 0 Aries, the Vertex, a point of Fate, came to 0 Libra, exactly opposite, the axes precisely overlaying each other. Libra is the sign of war and Peace, and this time, with the Aries war god sign at the Ascendant, it was war. As the time came to the first degree of the first sign, the warrior and guns, the first shots were fired. Fate struck. From one side, Justice was sought. From the other, relationships were non negotiably ended, rendered heartbroken through a sorrowful lack of equality. 50 dead, more than that injured, the worst mass shooting in American history.

Aries is also blood, and there was a lot lost. Aries is also the sign of heroes. Good people lined up for blocks to donate blood when the call went out. Blood banks received such an overwhelming response that they asked donors to come back over the next several days. So many are outpouring their loving support, in this case literally giving of themselves, restoring balance as they can. Zero degrees also indicates new beginnings, and through blood shared, a mingling, a fusion, bonding of a kind, perhaps a deeper understanding, is occurring. The healing has begun.

Orlando Blood Bank Donors Mass Shooting

This event has further serious implications. For the injured and the families of those lost, it will irrevocably change their lives. Though a majority may vote for legalized unions, there are still those who have fear and hate, extremism. Gun laws will be further questioned and fought about. Consensus is a long way off. There is no doubt it will affect the candidacies and elections.

May the Spirits of those lost rest in Peace. We shall overcome; your lives have not been in vain.

Please stay true, be safe, keep learning, keep teaching, keep your courage, be more gentle in our differences. Give your comfort and support as you can. The world needs us to stay strong and steady in the Light, especially at times like this.



Please
be reassured that if you or a loved one or someone you know has any of the above aspects either in your or their birth charts or have transits like these happening to your birth charts, it does not mean you will do or have these things done to you. We are all complex and it takes a lot of factors to push us beyond social reason. In fact, the same aspects of pain for one person can call forth the healer in another. We are humans at different stages of growth, perhaps young Soul, old Soul. The pain in one is sorrow for us all.

In spite of suffering and difficulty, we learn from tragedy. Astrologically we learn to see warning points. We all become more alert and aware, more compassionate. We renew our efforts to help others, and be better people.

Venus Transit/Eclipse Chart – 15 Gemini, June 5, 2012!

North American observers can see it the afternoon of June 5, 2012

I’m writing to you well in advance about this event because I think it is important and it precedes the 2012 Mayan calendar event by only a few months.  I am wanting you to hold it in your consciousness, every day be readying yourself for it, put it in your practice.  Be thinking how you can get others ready.  If I could, I would have you see it as sort of like a Soul bath.  You would lay in your lawn chair, facing the Sun, and vision yourself soaking up everything there is to receive, being bathed in loving Light.  You don’t even have to know what that is.  I believe it will come.  Clean your receptors, open your heart.  Those of you who know astrology, study how it will be placed in your chart.  I’m starting to talk about it with every client.

Venus Transits come in pairs spaced eight years apart, but the time between pairs is 122 years, then 105 years. Due to this pattern, only six Venus transits have been seen since the invention of the telescope.  The 2004 Venus Transit was the first of our latest pair. Before that, the most recent transit had been in 1882—which means no living people on Earth had seen a Venus transit when the 2004 event occurred.  Some speculate this rare Transit was one of the reasons the Mayans chose 2012 as their 26,000 year cycle end/start date.

The Venus eclipses have been in the first 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius since 60 AD!  The previous June 8, 2004 Venus Transit was at 17 Gemini, square Jupiter, widely square Moon/Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto (a loose Mutable Grand Cross involving 7 planets).  Mutable signs call for diversity, adaptability.  The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is mind and meaning, communications near and far, from here to the University.  The Virgo/Pisces axis is service and devotion, working hard and dreamtime magic, healers of body and Soul.

This Venus retrograde conjuncts/eclipses the Sun at 15 degrees airy space-in-the-mind Gemini, both of them square Mars at 16 degrees  get-the-job-done Virgo.  Venus in Gemini is loving communications, appreciations, expressing affection, valuing diversity of thinking.  Square Mars in Virgo calls for that desire being thought about to be put into action, to break through from pleasure to leadership on a daily basis.  Virgo tends the fort, wants all to be healthy, not too much sugar!   Jupiter is at 28 degrees, finishing Taurus about to enter Gemini, just one degree from the Pleiades.  Mercury is at 27 Gemini, in a one degree semi sextile with this Jupiter.  There will be a lot to say, some of it profound, about the goings on, because this 27 Gemini position is powerfully positioned exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER, downloading the information to the people!  This is important because the Mayan Calendar turnover at the Sacred Tree, Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012, occurs only 6 degrees from the Galactic Center!  The Moon is conjunct Pluto, sextile Chiron, square Uranus.  This Moon position highlights Pluto; Pluto at this degree becomes part of the Jupiter three planet 8 degree YOD in the Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar turnover!  All will not go as planned, surprises in the offing, some left behind, inevitable deep-rooted change due to fathers, sadly, something to ‘weep’ about, a longed for professional matter at stake.  Some things, though much talked about, must be done alone, yet profoundly affect our mates, or we are affected by them….

Venus Transit chart, June 5, 2012, 5:09 PM Pacific, Santa Barbara CA

Due to the huge size difference, no way can Venus ‘eclipse’ the Sun – we call it a Venus Transit.  In images it is a mere black dot in a sea of yellow fire as it crosses the face of the Sun!  I think of it as a voyage, pilgrimage, a rite of passage, across this magnificent space being.  It is a merger, an immersion, being imbued, saturated, infused, with the brightest Light our Solar System, our neighborhood in the galaxy, has to offer!  And it is lined right up with US!  Whew!  This is the Kleig Light of Heaven, from our Heart of Light, transmitted, telegraphed, filtered, amped, a direct shot!  Do you think flowers in bloom at that time will have more powerful pollen, seeds, essences?!  Not one pore of Venus will be left untouched.  If your love went cold, those with planets touched by this aspect, will be warmed right back up, solar charged!  You may feel you have plenty to give, more than ever!  Venus matters ‘enlightened’ will involve beauty, the arts, money, attractiveness, our values, love, kindness, graciousness, giving.  Perhaps you will be ‘weeping’ for JOY!

In Gemini, the Word, all those matters will be spoken of, listened for, written up!  Start your blog!  Multifaceted ideas will spring forth, diversity rules!  Marketing and advertising will be blessed with connecting people who love what is being sold.  Contracts will be better for all involved.  How we learn, pay attention, will improve, education be more cherished.  Learning a second language will be more valuable not only to improve memory, but to make special connections with people that used to be out of reach.  Touch healing, massage will flourish.  Sports like tennis, running, may make new records!  Very true, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.  Words of praise and appreciation make all the difference.  Love formula – 5 praise to 1 criticism.  What we think – what we focus our attention on, how we think – half full/half empty, matters.  Profoundly.

Venus rules first Taurus, Earth, then Libra, Air.  Taurus has a sensual beauty, rules celebrities and common sense, the monies at hand, the sitting Buddha, Earth, our self esteem.  Libra rules classic beauty, the fine arts, etiquette, Kwan Yin, balance, our adult peer relationships, marriage, how we see our value among our peers, legal proceedings.  We all have both signs in our charts.  Find out where they are in your chart, then read the Venus Transit into those houses, and which house the exact Transit is in, to see what and where you personally are activated.

Those of you with birthdates from the 2nd to the 8th of the month, and/or have planets from 12 to 19 degrees of any sign, will be the most affected by the Venus Transit.  Most air and fire signs will be comfortable with it, may flourish.  Other mutable signs, Virgo and Pisces at square, Sagittarius opposite, may be put off by all the ‘meaningless’ chit chat, may not even hear of it, or be surprised by, perhaps at first annoyed by, new ideas that seemed hidden!  Earth signs want to keep their routine, but there will surely be disruptions.  Water signs, though intrigued, may duck under to see what is happening below the surface and to rest their ears.

A client asked me …will all these changes be for the good?  In some ways the World is already better as people seek new solutions (energy production, government).  Any change proves there CAN be change.  With a lot of old world regimes toppling, there will be chaos and clumsy reform that may take years to settle.  That’s normal.  Change of such magnitude takes time.  Flooding with education and information (Gemini) are imperative.  Giving alternate solutions gives choice (Gemini).  Some of those people have been ‘asleep’ for a long time.  Breaking with tradition and psychological habit is scary.  So change itself, though a relief for some, is part of what can stall the very things it is looking toward.  Encouragement and less poverty, the ability to provide for themselves, create a security base that allow the luxury of a more positive choice.  One of the maxims of natural cycles is it is always darkest before the Light.  Now is the time to stay steady – get us through and beyond the chrysalis of this stage.  Though a chrysalis is a hardened shell, to protect the pupa of the butterfly, it is often seen twitching with life when touched….

This Venus Transit comes before the Dec 21, Winter Solstice, 2012 Mayan calendar end/turnover, giving us LOVE first to cap the final achievements.  We finish the final days before the Calendar ends with more GRACE.  This sets the foundation for a sweeter start of the next cycle, the BLESSINGS to come in the new times!

Let love light the dark way, return to the Light, see the Light.  Merge with, emerge from, the Heart of Light, it’s a free ride!  Reverence to all Beings.  Namaste.  Or as the Mayans say, “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself [Gemini, the Twins]. 

Gemini, Sign of the Hands, the Honored Sign of Transference of the Venus Transit June 5, 2012

Please do see more, about the Jupiter Gemini Connection to the eclipse in the months that follow!

Sai Baba – Astrological Birth and Death Charts

Scorpio - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Easter.  Today, that day of Resurrection, is the day the Great Master, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, chose to leave his earthly body.  What a message.  We are born again.

Here is the chart of his birth.  What is most unique is that he never left India to bring his message to the world.  At 84, he was revered by millions worldwide, with ashrams in over 126 countries.  Devotees included high-placed politicians, movie stars, world-class athletes and industrialists.  Over my lifetime, I have had friends who were with him when he performed some of his miracles.  I am a believer, and am sad at his passing, blessed that he lived, for my friends’ miracles were real to me and changed me too.

Sai Baba – Scorpio Sun & Ascendant, Moon Cancer

Saturn was next to his Sun in Scorpio when he was born, made him like a Capricorn as well as a Scorpio.  One of Saturn/Capricorn, abilities is apporting – the ability to materialize things out of thin air.  My friends saw him make roses appear in his hands, and the sacred ritual ash, Vibuthi, for their foreheads.  With Saturn at Baba’s Ascendant and Sun, he was a hard worker, and likely life was not always easy.  He never married or had children.  They say we teach what we need to learn.  Baba’s Venus and Mercury were in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Aquarius, a love of spiritual teaching and people of all places.  His Mars was in Taurus, an enduring warrior devoted to his purpose, a founder.  His Moon in Cancer gave him a love of home, so he built an ashram, a spiritual home for people to come live and learn with him.  Crowning his chart is Neptune in Leo, at 26 degrees in a positive exact trine with wth Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius!  Spirituality fit for a king, major fame, though most Scorpios like to operate from behind the scenes.  Another thing that brought this man forward was that four of his planets, Saturn, Sun, Venus and Mercury were all in his first house, the Aries house, making him sacrifice his privacy for leadership!  Or you could say he led from behind since his medium was meditation and spirituality, both invisible!

Baba’s Death Chart, Easter April 24, 2011, Puttaparthy, India at 7.40 AM

It is thought by many that the sign you die in is the one you reincarnate in!  So here he went with Sun and Ascendant in Taurus, the opposite sign of his Sun and Ascendant he had this life, Scorpio!  Pluto and Moon are in Capricorn, the opposite sign they were in this life, Cancer!  In both instances, he has gone the maximum distance, reach, across the zodiac!  He leaves us during a 5 planet Aries Stellium (cluster of 3 or more planets in the same sign), a champion even in death.  The Ascendant of his death chart is 29 degrees Taurus, a classic degree in horary astrology of something to weep about, the degree of the 7 Sisters, the Pleiades.  Indeed.


Death Chart around Birth Chart 

Difficult Aspects
Pluto in Capricorn at his natal South Node – controversy over past leadership/authority/integrity
Neptune/Chiron Pisces square natal Venus/Mercury Sagittarius – unsurety over management of the Satya Sai Central Trust, estimated to be worth over $8.9 billion, or much more, and issues of fake miracles.  No successor has been named to run the trust.  Venus and Mercury are money and naming.  Neptune and Chiron are spiritual business, the unknowable, miracles.
Saturn in Libra and Mercury/Mars/Jupiter in Aries forming a T square natal North Node, Moon, Pluto in Cancer – controversy over sexual abuse of devotees, fake miracles, the June 1993 killings in his bedroom.  Oops.  Saturn can be rather merciless, wants an accounting.  Mercury/Mars/Jupiter search for the truth.  Moon is bedrooms/at home, Pluto is vast sums of $, death, mysteries.

Positive Aspects
Neptune/Chiron Pisces sextile natal Mars in Taurus
– hopefully things will be worked out with the Trust leadership and the good works will continue
Uranus/Venus in Aries trine natal Venus/Mercury in Sagittarius – world love and leadership will network to carry on teaching the message, helping to focus for the June 5, 2012 Venus Transit and Mayan Crossroads/Sacred Tree Dec 21, 2012
Jupiter in Aries sextile natal Jupiter in Aquarius – Jupiter rules fame, orthodox religion, state ceremonies, funeral rituals, truth, teaching, expansion.  Perhaps much more will come to light about Baba’s life in the next few years.  However that may shake out, he brought millions of people planet wide to spiritual insights and practice.  Millions of people in conscious practice are needed to keep the balance in a frightened world.  They will carry the power of the tipping point to a better life.

Steady in the Light and your Practice.  In Love, Cerena
