Lunar Connections Throughout! New & Full Moons, the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde!

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

Cosmic DNA, evolutionary strands, a weaving of multitude, an unseen pilot lighting the way, time travel…..spiritual intelligence incarnate. We do the same hours every day, yet no two days are alike. Unique waves of consciousness never experienced before. Recognition, Fusion, Alliance, Passage.

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

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

Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Mercury starts in Leo for only two days, but they are oh, so potent! 
The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun! The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Priestess! Virgo is the sign of organization and service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo. Regulus is one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the South, Summer Solstice, Archangel Raphael, Doctor of Medicine.

Mercury moves along into Virgo, but returns to Leo for a 10 day station (standstill as it turns direction forward), Aug 31 to Sep 9. Mercury is the planet of magical synapses, within oneself and with others! Words get around and we see their many faces. We think, we speak to our core intelligence, the who we are. In Leo there is the search for authenticity, being in the heart, radiant with natural Light. It’s a creative posture, alive with brilliant potential. It calls for a purity of Being that gives the strength from being true. Mercury handshakes its way with a smile that moves the Soul! It passes it on. Irresistible! At the last two degrees of Leo it is mature and sure. Leo being a fixed sign; once it has found its way, it is the Light on the Path, steady and with a remarkable Will to succeed.

Mercury in Virgo, one of its own signs, is clever and succinct, lines up connections so those synapses can fire more frequently. It aligns DNA-like rows of synapses that exchange energy as they travel. It keeps energy points clean so there is clear, quick and accurate exchange. Properly lined up and in peak condition, they can self create and continue. They are strong, flexible. Make turns, reverses to review. They twist to vantage points to look back on how to profit from past experiences and glimpse the future.

The everyday experience might look like how it is situated at the Aug 7 Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse:

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Bookkeeping and services, health matters, getting some rest, streamlining your life, landlord/tenanting may require your attention. Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to make changes, get engaged. Mercury turns forward Sept 5.

The Aug 12 Retrograde is at 11 Virgo 38, square the fixed star Antares in the constellation Scorpio! Squares mean challenges most any day, but to Antares it may not be an easy challenge. Since Mercury direction changes also mean being in Station, an 8 day period, the energy will be held a good 8 days. Since Antares is at 9 Sagittarius 46+, we’ll extend that time to 5 days before the 12th, 5 days following. Antares is another of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the West, autumnal equinox, Archangel Uriel/Oriel, Fire of God. Rob Tillett sums up Antares saying: Spirit of adventure, obstinacy, injuries to eyes, honours, sudden loss, stubborn, suspicious, violent, several marriages. A super simplified interpretation by me would be Virgo wants to work, Sagittarius wants to play and doesn’t show up on time. That’s not a disaster, but you might lose your job and that could become a challenge! If you’re going surfing during work time, take the boss with you!

The Retrograde cycle starts with the Star of the South, Regulus, and ends in connection with the Star of the West, Antares.

Retrograde in Leo, Mercury may change his mind about his opinion about himself. And that’s likely to flip or shift again as there are further developments while Mercury is in station – appears to be standing still in the sky Sep 1 to 8 – then moves forward again and finishes Leo, for the year, Sep 9. The choices of self presentation, personal style – words, posture, looks, colors, lighting – will definitely change. Educational matters, seminar schedules, advertising text, romantic concerns, will change, adjust, maybe improve with adjustments. Consider, research, but wait. Redesign, check fit, availability, but wait. If it passes Virgo specs during the first week Mercury is back in Virgo, go for it! To be on the safe side, get changes clients make approved with signatures and dates, keep receipts, get warranties.

During the Leo station, Mercury Rx conjuncts Mars at 28 Leo 43 on Sep 3. Sep 5 Mercury turns Direct, as Mars moves forward into Virgo. Traveling closely together it takes until Sep 16 for Mercury to make its catchup second conjunction at 7 Virgo 13! In Leo, Mercury interviews the champion, announces a winner, names the leader! He announces the new creation, the exciting new curriculum! Mercury in Virgo puts the energy into action, organizing efforts to achieve the project  A garden may be started, a new health regime makes the news, study efforts back at school are swiftly dispatched. New hires, private contractors, are welcomed gratefully.

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

  1. The July 23 New Moon Is the day before the Mercury Rx cycle starts! It will help you see what’s at the bottom of things, the new beginning you would like to aim for. Moon conjunct Sun is a mighty union especially when the Sun is in his own sign Leo! It’s time to stand tall and have the pride of your own sweet Spirit!
  2. Before the August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse, Mercury is close to opposite Neptune in Pisces! Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, and Neptune rules the opposite sign Pisces and is in Pisces! It’s almost like a double opposition! Mercury is intrigued by things out of its usual scope, a higher order perhaps. It can be used as a universal model. Things flow, health improves, you arrive at a vantage point of synchronicity that surprises you by its infinitely more favorable links. Logic and intuition work well together. They stay close but with Mercury slowing to retrograde, they don’t become exact, but considerations are stirred. They are within three degrees 10 days, from August 7 to 17. The exact aspect isn’t made, the outcome revealed isn’t revealed, until Sep 19. See more! 
  3. Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE is at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse! He trines Dark Moon Lilith at 9 Capricorn. Laser logic and bold feminine success. Tending and building. Cool mind, clear focused passionate power! Use the Eclipse message as your Guide.
  4. The Sep 6 Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon is not linked to degrees in the Mercury Rx cycle, but is linked in time, happening the day after Mercury goes Direct, forward! Mercury is in station, appearing to stand still in the sky, at that time. Mercury holds the degree for 8 days, 4 before and 4 after the direction turn. There is a deep intake, a focus, mulling it over, a strengthening, an anchoring is possible. Take care what you hold in your thoughts in these 8 day periods. This time we look at the span of Pisces to Virgo. The Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, his own sign! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time. Mars newly at 0 Virgo, conjunct fixed star Regulus (see more), wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time!
  5. The Sep 19 Virgo New Moon is at 27 Virgo, while Mercury is finishing his cycle at 11 Virgo on the same day! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

July 23 First Leo New Moon at 0 Leo 44
xxxx24 Mercury at 28 degrees Leo Retrograde Cycle starts
xxxx25 Mercury into Virgo, one of its own signs

Aug    7 Full Green Corn Moon at 15 Aquarius/Leo 25
xxxx12 Mercury Retrograde at 11 degrees Virgo
xxxx21 Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!
xxxx31 Mercury back in Leo only 10 days until Sep 9

Sep    5 Mercury Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Eclipse degree! Mars at 0 Virgo conjunct fixed star Regulus!
xxxxx6 Full Corn Moon 13 Pisces/Virgo 53
xxxxx9 Mercury returns to Virgo, one of its own signs
xxxx19 Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27 + Last day of Mercury Retrograde Cycle, Mercury at 11 Virgo 28!

When Mercury is in Leo, those of you with chart factors in 26 to 29 degrees of fixed signs, Leo/Aquarius, Taurus/Scorpio, will feel the challenge. Those with factors in those same degrees of Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius, will more likely be excited by the changes!

The majority of the Retrograde is 0 to 11 degrees Virgo. Those of you with chart factors in mutable signs, Virgo/Pisces, Gemini/Sagittarius, will be challenged when Mercury is in Virgo. The Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn will likely find it a smoother ride.

Wishing you all the very best. By my thinking, this Mercury Retrograde is significant! Make it so.

Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Moon-Jupiter Baker Paul Hollywood Great British Bake Off

This isn’t the most fabulous decadent cake I had picked out for you. I decided to give you a baker instead!

Paul Hollywood started out at home in his father’s bakery as a teenager, and his grandfather was head baker at The Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool! Though a Pisces, he has the Moon, cooking – the planet of Cancer, conjunct his Jupiter of fame and fortune! They are in Gemini, so Jupiter the traveler has taken him to many (Gemini) places, including being head baker at a number of hotels, including The Dorchester, Chester Grosvenor and Spa and the Cliveden Hotel. He then left the UK for Cyprus, where he worked at two resorts and met his scuba instructor wife Alexandra!

His Saturn, Chiron and Mars, together in Pisces, are trine Neptune in Scorpio, so he can take, and dish out, quite a bit of heat in the kitchen! Since the show launched in 2010, Hollywood has been a judge on the BBC program The Great British Bake Off. In this capacity, he has been described as the “antidote” to judges such as Len Goodman or Simon Cowell in other reality television programs, on account of his straightforward and honest manner and because his judging is restricted purely to the finished product. The show is now in its 7th series!

And, of course, Paul speaks at several food festivals, including the Cumbrian Food Festival, and the BBC Good Food Show and the Cake and Bake Show, both in London.

Fun for a Baker! In 2008, Hollywood created an almond and roquefort sourdough recipe that was said to be the most expensive bread in Britain. The roquefort was supplied from a specialist in France at £15 per kilo (that’s $19+ per 2 lbs +), while the flour for the bread was made by a miller in Wiltshire. Hollywood describes it as a “Rolls-Royce of loaves”.

As you might expect, with Moon/Jupiter, Paul, ‘The King of Bakes’ is a generous Soul. Paul is a keen supporter of the Pilgrims Hospices. Sep 2015 is just one example. He made a guest appearance to encourage home baking enthusiasts taking part in their Wingham farm shop Gibsons Big Cake Bake fundraiser. Contestants entered their best bake, be it a cake, cookie, cupcake, tray bake for local judges to see and taste.He is also successful at his other love, motor racing! In 2015 Hollywood began his racing career, making his debut in the Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT4. Hollywood raced with Andrew Howard, founder of Beechdean Dairies – probably a foodie friend, right?! The pair qualified second in the Britcar Trophy Championship’s first round at Silverstone taking second in class in both races. Hollywood competed at Le Mans in 2015, in the Aston Martin festival. And also competed in GT Cup with Jonny Adam and finished 1st in class.

Every week, Paul shares a new recipe online as well as blogging about his experiences and future plans. More of Hollywood’s recipes are available in his books, which include 100 Great Breads, The Weekend Baker and How To Bake. And he sells his own range of merchandise online. He’s doing ok – worth almost 13M. Check him out! And do bring us all a loaf of bread you baked yourself!

Cancer 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Summer Triangle Vega Deneb Altair

Start looking for it now, mid June! See the Summer Triangle as a great big “V” for vacation!  It is most prominent during the summer season. Three stars in three constellations mark its points – Vega in Lyra the Harp, Deneb in Cygnus the Swan, and Altair in Aquila the Eagle.

Bruce McClure poetically writes: ‘Once you master the Summer Triangle, you can always locate the Milky Way on a clear, dark night. How about making the most of a dark summer night to explore this band of stars – this starlit boulevard abounding with celestial delights? Use binoculars to reel in the gossamer beauty of it all, the haunting nebulae and star clusters of a midsummer night’s dream!’

At nightfall in summer, look for the brightest star in your eastern sky. That’s Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra the Harp. Look to the lower left of Vega for another bright star – Deneb, the brightest in the constellation Cygnus the Swan and the third brightest in the Summer Triangle. Look to the lower right of Vega to locate the Summer Triangle’s second brightest star Altair.

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse! Get your Eclipse glasses!

Cancer 2017 TimeLine!

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

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The last aspect, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune has been and is in a one degree station May 17, retrograde, to July 4, direct/forward! The final set of six starts with this July 4 aspect. In forward order, the set of six finishes 11/11!

Cancer 2017, the 48 days Jupiter inconjunct Neptune finishes. We stay in contemplation, a continuous exploration of myths and miracles! We take steps off the main course, venturing into the relativity of causation – how we were created, how we ourselves are the cause of our future. Walking through the invisible veils that once held us, becomes a way of life. We are always fresh, know the perfect vantage point for clear vision.

The Aug 4 Jupiter square Pluto is the next last aspect of the now forward set of six that started Oct 2016.

The upcoming Lunar sequence is profound! There are two new Moons in LEO, the second is the amazing US Total Solar Eclipse!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.
Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017.

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Cancer 2017 –  July 2018!

Cancer Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland

A magical walk in time……….Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland 

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Cancer’s year to come. What we do now will be backdrop and foundation for our future moves. Stay tuned in! 

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 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! Pluto is opposite Cancer, calling on that immortal strength of the Mother. There is a look at the depths of feelings, their reality, their roots. Feelings we have outgrown are weeded out, feelings we keep are cleansed and reorganized more appropriately to current times. Children are threatened or protected; businesses are ended, sold, or fortified. Security and financial matters need tending. Death could be nearby. Don’t be seduced by suave masters, inappropriate relationships. There will be consequences that might not be able to be fixed or forgiven. Do check in with your astrologer for your whole personal picture.

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Cancer and Neptune can make profound art, music of the Soul! Cancer loves genealogy, a look at the Past, and Neptune can be the guide through the labyrinth! This may be a sweet time to find your spiritual home, make sacred connections, make a meditation space or have a private studio. You may find yourself where the river meets the sea, get a home with a view of the lake, a houseboat! Blended smoothies could become your favorite food!

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year 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 Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Cancer doesn’t always like rowdy changes, but is interested in gathering scholarly information to make the changes the best possible. Uranus rules the world community, and Cancer rules the local community, family unity. Cancer is a sub model and quite personally knows about the ins and outs of family workings. Uranus stirs that system to extend its relationships, try different techniques, rethink financial methods and food sources. Fears can vaporize, curiosity becomes wonder!

Uranus in Taurus is a lot easier on the Cancer nervous system. There is less rush, more settling, common sense. Taurus is also food oriented. Natural and organic is wonderful. Overeating is a danger, a delicious danger. Those new recipes Uranus brought are scrumptious. Taurus prefers safe and dependable finances just like Cancers do, and the new techniques really work! Relationships that have time to grow and bloom as friendships first is very comfortable, and they are likely to be with a person you meet in your own community. There is a mutual sharing and camaraderie. They are unique and talented people that spice your life in a pleasing way. Some of your new friends may come on the scene bringing unusual animals and pets to your location. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about 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.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Cancer is that quick too! The healing is sensitive and can run deeper into your Spirit than any time ever before. It can free you to make adult relationships that leave the errors of your parents behind, especially your Mom. Childishness falls away and your new level natural fit is blessed. Both Chiron and Cancer like to do business, but Pisces adds the need to do what you totally love! Art, music, cheffing, schooling, parenting, beautiful interior design, antiques, genealogy! Having your own business, stock trading!

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! Aries is not usually Cancer’s favorite, but sometimes we need the prod, the encouragement to attempt our new ideas! School is less personal; mentors and therapists know us well and won’t let us get away with denial or staying in fear. There may be a feeling of pressure as Chiron activates your personal degrees, and that means it’s working! Back off of spicy hot foods, be cautious of cuts, take care of fevers/infections right away.

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through July 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn is askew, inconjunct Cancer. Saturn is the planet of Capricorn, the sign opposite Cancer. There is an invitation to follow off to the side, to cross the bridge and take the turn. Cancer just wants to stay home. Saturn has a hard time resisting trying to Father Cancer, the sign of women and children, especially when they are at home. It’s an instinct. They want to protect. Saturn wants to build the best for Cancers though at times that can feel limiting, like when they want to change your plans too! Need to talk it over or it feels heavy handed to a sensitive Cancer. Sometimes it seems there are too many facts and rules for their intuitive preferences. Other times it makes them feel secure that hardworking Saturn is there for them. Small quarters can be cozy or confining. Cold is not so good for snuggly Cancers who also like cooking in a warm kitchen! Cancer may be sad when Saturn needs to go off on business trips, but reunions are sweet when some new recipes are brought back, even if they are foreign, along with a kitchen gift!

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Cancer is one of the best business signs! They will relish the practical tips Saturn has to share. Saturn will help with time management, laws, accounting percentages, ROI, getting projects in on time! They will also help you curb your diet! In relationships be cautious you don’t fall for a Daddy or for fame rather than an equal partner. The partner you pick will likely have an excellent reputation and is quite accomplished. Your own Father or an elder may become important in a meaningful way.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting, care of elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 13 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Cancer is generally traditional and though can be gossipy, still feels there are personal matters that are nobody’s business but your own. Jupiter doesn’t give it at though, and in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Cancer’s Moms and family before them gave them theirs and they protect those special connections. Go gently if you are invading home territory of another. Sometimes Jupiter can share with a big smile and with the utmost manners make you feel everything they and you have so say is a treasure. That works. You can be invited to marvelous parties and come home tired and happily overwhelmed, sampled everything, ate too much. This is likely a love ’em and leave ’em relationship potential. They leave. Super business ideas, big job offered maybe – if you travel with them, but more likely you will be grateful for the information and take them to the airport….

Jupiter in Scorpio and Cancer can do business! Jupiter brings backers. It can start as a hometown business and become a corporation! This can be a fertile combination, a partnership, personal or business, that can last a lifetime. Intimacy can be irresistible, deep, poignant and potent – children for sure and a big home to live in! In this case there could be a home away from home, and the business have branch locations. Jupiter in Scorpio will forever have secrets even though Jupiter is open and the TruthTeller. Scorpio never tells all. At least get a credit check. And watch out for schemes or bigamy. Jupiter in Scorpio can appear sleazy or big-eyed honest and not be, or be hero journalists who reveal all! On the healing front they can be phenomenal! Extraordinary therapists, researchers, soul cleansing, forgiveness, PTSD healers, hospice saints. They tackle some of the toughest work needed. They can demand a lot of us and we may think we could never truly measure up. If we finally find the Soul that is as intense as we are, it is an incredible blessing.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, 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 coming Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:


2017

Oct 10  Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio
Dec 19 Saturn from Sagittarius to Capricorn!

2018

Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus

Happy Birthdays, Cancers! Thank you for your precious guidance.


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

Cancer, the Art of Families

Cancer Old Family Homestead New Salem, MA

Old family homestead with Apple Trees at a New Salem MA

Cancer is really about the special people we love – babies to elders. Our past is made up of many dear people from cultures all over the world. We have images of some of them, and antiques and mementos that mean so much to us.

Families are like a human tapestry of time. There are the elders that learned from their elders, their Grandmas and Grandpas. There are the parents that learned from theirs, and add their own ways with insights of the times they live in. They leave some ways behind, preserve and carry forward what they see as the core goodness that makes life flow well. Children watch with innocence, absorbing some of the bad along with the good, each a unique reservoir of Spirit. They are a mixture, a blend, that is the potency of a new generation. They have dreams, sometimes without even consciously knowing what the dreams are, a result of what happened before them. Some dreams are the dreams of their culture, some of their dreams are generated from their own vitality, forging a new generation that their children will then carry forward.

It’s an intricate and sensitive process. For every person it is unique. Sometimes we are so different than our forebears and family, a Mother’s comfort is all there is. Sometimes we find a mentor that understands us, feels most of what we feel, listens. Together, as cycles flow, years go by, we accomplish so much. There are amazing achievements, often documented by beautiful watercolors, photography, designs, quilts. We become the engineers of life!

Cancers make excellent teachers. First they show us the basics – how to feed ourselves, what’s good to eat, how to keep clean, do our household chores, how to do for and love one another. That’s utterly important. It safeguards our entry into the greater world around us. Ever scholarly, the learning continues lifelong. A Cancer holds a wealth of knowledge.

As we grow, our skills start shaping. Many share family businesses. Some work we do because it is life maintenance, rent to be paid, and some we do because it is our passion to do so. We have verve, a natural intelligence for it. People see that about us and want to do thriving business with us. We are good at it and we become more of ourselves, have a fullness, a wellspring of fertile richness. With that strength we develop a greater ability to care for others, bring them forward in their lives as well, blessing us all! We become a contributing person in our community, a respected leader.

In many communities there is a natural goodness and diversity, a unity that creates a greater culture that encourages kindness to all. The community has the abundance to afford to welcome strangers who in turn make their contributions that increase that abundance even further! Travelers are often surprised and deeply pleased how much we who seem so different are so much alike. We become special people to them and they to us.

Relationships we form are tender and forever. We share shelter in storms, tend each other when there are tummy troubles, nurse the orphans. Intimacy is productive, babies flourish. Big families often. If not, adoptions are made. If your partner is a Cancer, be sure to snuggle and cuddle frequently. If they get crabby once in awhile, love them up! Feelings hurt? Listen, let them know how sorry you are they feel badly. If you messed up, apologize and make amends as promptly as possible. Amends means, breakfast in bed, perhaps a favorite sweet treat. Chocolate cake and ice cream, or cookies you made yourself would do nicely. Smile.

We are making the future right now as we speak. Our children have our pictures. We carry the gift of a lifetime’s experience that we have blessed them with.

Be ever proud of and grateful for what held you in its arms, the principles of your People. Be loving to the dear humans who love you as well as they can. Pass that love on.

Then followed that beautiful season… Summer…
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Uranus Square Pluto, Royal Wedding Chart, William & Kate!

Uranus square Pluto is starting, now 5 degrees in orb.  That will keep things shaking!  Oops, maybe I shouldn’t say that.  Uranus in Aries is the rebellious young upstart compared to the wizened Pluto burrowing the depths of corporate Capricorn.  Yet Pluto is associated with journalism, follows the money, a trouble maker of a different ilk.  Power will be questioned.  Put them together and things that were thought to be impermeable may be disturbed at the deepest foundations, shaken to thunder!  Long standing old schools will have cracks in their armor, new conduits able to be begun.  Some will fall of their own finished weight, to be replaced for better benefit, or simply let go – no need to go further, job done.  Strange and wonderful new alliances will be tried and some will work and break through to whole new types of community models, building codes, laws.  Businesses once thought to be ridiculous will begin to prove themselves as the needs of the times and hidden technology comes to light to make them feasible.  Those who ride the snorty horse will fly!  Let those pawing hooves make fiery sparks! 

Another take on Uranus into Aries, square Pluto.  This aspect is unique because it happens 7 times!  It will be exact for the first time June 23, 2012, finishing Mar 17, 2015, in effect for five years!

I wrote the above with no thought of the Royal Wedding, William & Kate, in mind.  Yet this is the most powerful aspect of the out most planets, longest in duration, in their wedding chart.  It will always be in their wedding chart, but the actual aspect in the sky will culminate Mar 17, 2015.  At that point it shall have made 7 exact connections at varying but close degrees.  If their marriage is surviving at that time, they will probably make it.  So much is being said about how their marriage is giving hope in hard economic times and following the years of sadnesses around Charles, Diana, and Camilla.  Perhaps this symbolizes breaking through old patterns of the monarchy, British financial reform.

Some are using the 11 AM start of the wedding for the wedding chart;  I am using the 11:20 AM pronouncement moment – the intent of the event before your peers.  If you really want to get technical about it, use the chart when the last person signed the papers for official records after the ceremony.  The 11 AM chart has Venus of love and beauty at the top of the chart, and the wedding did start on time, and was a lovely ceremony that went off without a hitch though William did have a hard time getting the ring on Kate’s finger (Saturn opposite Mercury). 

Royal Wedding Chart, Prince William & Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

The most unique feature of the wedding chart is that simplistically, the Moon is Void of Course in Pisces square the Galactic Center.  Void of Course, VOC, is the time period from when the Moon makes its last connection with any planet and the time it enters a new sign.  There are extreme opposing points of view of what this period brings.  The traditional view is nothing will come of it, it won’t come out as expected, somewhat unpredictable.  This is great if your question is ‘Will I go to jail?’!  Rarely would a VOC Moon be chosen for a wedding chart.  Since the Moon has directly to do with fertility and a royal heir is usually wanted, this would be doubly so in this case.  It is said, ‘…the moon relating to the mother, will give a mother who was ‘not there’ so to speak. she may not have been there physically, emotionally, or she may have been even neglectful.’  Will’s mother Diana, ‘not there,’ is an important facet of their lives together.  The other view is there is nothing to stop it, nothing to stand in its way.  Hilary Clinton’s Moon (women) is VOC in Pisces in her 10th house of career and authority!  First Lady.   There are exceptions to the VOC rule, and this chart has them.  The Moon is said to ‘perform’ in Pisces – Pisces lives to osmose!  When it changes signs it will conjunct Uranus at 2 degrees Aries – free to act! Mercury and Jupiter are in an angular house, the 10th – a place determined to accomplish.  Jupiter with Mars is lucky to act!  How to resist?!!!

Still, as compelling as those aspects are, organically, the Moon, back at 26 degrees, four to go to change Signs, I would give the VOC read precedence, attending to reading the Moon for herself.  Pisces does move, but it can be ever so cleverly quietly, miniscule motion, practically invisible.  The VOC Moon is like a pause.  Preceding matters have been concluded, we’re in the done-deal zone, with perhaps a sense that it was all fated.  This is like a thoughtful, perhaps resting, reset period, in internal adjustment readying for the next Sign, the Gateway.  It is a step in a process.  A chart with lots of upcoming Lunar aspects in a Sign has many unfolding options, a rich future if favorable, is busy.  In traditional successful wedding charts, the Moon is chosen to be in trine or sextile with the Sun, Mother and Father, the Lights in harmony for fertility, full of life!  This chart has no upcoming Lunar aspects, no classic Sun/Moon, male/female connection. 

Pisces, the Moon’s Sign, is also an ending symbol, finishing symbol of maturity, being the last Sign of the Zodiac.  It too has to do with rest, contemplation, the unknown, unknowable, visioning.  To the negative side, it can be addictions, the victim/martyr, hidden agendas, fantasy versus reality.  For Kate going from commoner to Queen, it can be the dream come true, fairy tales.  Moon nurtures unconditionally; Pisces is the ultimate compassion.  It gives a dramatic counterpoint to the 5 planet Aries stellium (cluster – see below)!  Aries is noted for action, can be courageous first responders, but is not noted for ongoing care with deep sensitivity.  The Moon rules mothers, children, women in general, and Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt, in particular.  And Mother Diana was missing.  Pisces also rules being in Spirit form.  In the Abbey, closest to where William and Kate stood to take their vows, there were five chairs. Four of them were taken, by the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla … and then there was an empty chair. Was that chair for Diana?

Some are saying this ‘lost’ Moon in ‘lost Pisces’ is symbolically a way of putting away Diana’s influence. Maybe so, but she was William’s mother. That concept doesn’t work for me. This Void of Course position is akin to an ‘escape’ planet, a planet that has no connections formed to it or by it. It is in a separate state, unhindered, but ineffective, sometimes a loose cannon since there is nothing to censor its choices, no outlets to siphon off energy. It’s behavior often seems inappropriate.  It’s one thing to ‘put away’ a matter, it’s quite another to not get any benefit from the Moon other than the Sign it is in. 

Being on the brink of the Mayan calendar ending 2012, that event quite close to being at the Galactic Center, the Moon being a degree of square the Galactic Center seems significant!  Perhaps they will never take their kingdom or their kingdom, the monarchy system, will be ended, or it will be fraught with difficulties throughout their time.

Their Sun is in Taurus, a sign of fertility and stability, loyalty forever!  And there were earthy Pagan elements to the wedding.  Trees brought into the Abbey.  It was near Beltane – May Day celebration of fertility.  They had a hand wrapping – called handfasting in Pagan circles.  The archbishop who married them is a Druid!  And William’s full name is William Arthur Philip Louis, Arthur being the King of old mythical legends.

Leo Rising, the Ascendant, is a romantic Sign of Kings & Queens, great powers!  As Taurus, it is another fixed sign, cherishes its mate and takes a long time before it gives up.  It is generous, loves to teach, is thought to be selfish at times, is great fun to be around, has boundless energy!  Trine Venus, is kind, loves glorious beauty and color.  Their wedding was bright – William’s red uniform (Aries’ color).   

FIVE planets in Aries!  Aries is not famous for finishing projects nor fertility, but is a splendid champion, passionate leader!  Both Leo and Aries are athletic.  The group of five starts with Uranus of community, international connections, freedom.  Then there is Venus, love of independence, heroes, celebrities, art by fire.  The MidHeaven in Aries decides to try new things in government, laws, status.  Mercury is next, with inspiring things to say, fresh insights.  Mars and Jupiter conclude together.  Mars here is in its own Sign, racy super action, with Jupiter is legendary!  Jupiter is what we think is righteous, good luck, horses and big dogs, expansion, future plans, travel, publishing, education!  Expect these two to broaden and brighten Britain!  Aries is less famous for stopping to make agreements, more famous for spontaneous action, sometimes fiery fights, but quickly over!  One way or another, this couple will make a lot of news! 

With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.  Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times. 

Saturn at 12 Libra is at a midpoint opposition with Venus 10 Aries, MidHeaven 12 Aries and Mercury 14 Aries!  Sometimes duty will dominate, love and simply doing what you want to do will seem far, far away.  There may not always be time to talk, so many responsibilities.  And at times, it will just be good to be apart, a little room to navigate freely. 

The Sun sextile Chiron of Marriage, and semi sextile Venus of love and affection, will soften and protect them, give a sweetness.   

Sun trine Pluto is the number one US corporate wealth aspect!  If it works well in Britain too, their fortunes together are likely assured!  Saturn though square Pluto, and is going back, retrograde, to 10 degrees, never makes the exact square to Pluto at 7 degrees.  There will be financial scares, close calls, perhaps, but will never quite happen.  The issues of their country’s economics will always be of concern.

Spiritually speaking, whether by chance or chosen, a wedding chart is always perfect.  The couple has the ultimate final choice of date, time and place.  Whatever is the Soul’s agreement, agenda, the chart will show the way and be lived in all its intricacy. 

If you didn’t see it and would like to, here is a link to watch the ceremony.  At the very beginning, note the lovely greenery in the abbey!
