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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jupiter is the lucky one! Here are the action aspects Pacific times and dates:
x
May 30   9:56 AM    Mercury conjunct Sun
June 2     6:31 PM    Moon trine Jupiter
June 5     4:38 PM    Mars sextile Jupiter
June 8     2:56 PM    Sun sextile Jupiter
June 9     0:29 AM    Mars Sextile Uranus (8th is the day)
June 14   8:56 AM    Sun conjunct Mars
June 14   5:38 PM    Saturn back in Scorpio
June 22   6:43 AM   Jupiter trine Uranus!x

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

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

Be tasty!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scorpio New Eclipse Full Moon Raven Carrigan
Colleen K Carrigan is the enchantress artist of our Scorpio season masked Raven! 

NEW MOON, Solar Eclipse, last Eclipse of 2014!!
Wednesday Oct 23 at 2:57 PM Pacific – 0 SC 25 

See  FULL Frosty Moon

The Magic of Love and New Beginnings!

Five days of New Beginnings! New Moon, Solar Eclipse, Venus, Moon, Sun at ZERO degrees, Sun, Venus, Mars Sign Changes, four Occultations, Mercury turning Direct!

Our New Moon, Fall Solar Eclipse, is Oct 23, the first day of SCORPIO! Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus and Sun make a four planet Stellium (grouping) in Libra! The 23rd Sun, Venus, then Moon move into Scorpio within hours and minutes of each other, soon to join Saturn already there. What was a Libra Stellium, at 2:10 PM Pacific becomes a four planet Stellium in Scorpio! This New Moon will be the first of Five in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, that are all at ZERO degrees!

In four days there are four potent occultations, another word for eclipses. These are more potent than conjunctions because not only are the planets aligned along the path of the constellations across the sky right to left, but they are at the same height above the Ecliptic (the Sun’s path)! This means they are perfectly aligned in line of sight! So you see, eclipses are all conjunctions, but all conjunctions are not eclipses. The energy of eclipses is unavoidable, a perfect two way exchange, no near misses. 

  • Oct 22  2:26 PM Pacific Moon in Libra eclipses Mercury retrograde. Moon senses the true balance, regard. The relationship you were thinking of may be forever lost, or temporarily shadowed, in a more gripping event or concept. Schedule a follow up meeting. Offer a better alliance with more tasty options. Mercury, usually logical, finds itself considering feelings as well as ideas, and though confused perhaps at first, is able to adroitly express and convey a more tonal quality to the meaning of its words. A fusion, greater impact is possible. Libra wants that Union.
  • Oct 23  2:12 PM  Moon eclipses Venus 20 minutes after she enters Scorpio! Moon loves in her motherly way, compared to Venus’s romantic love. Children may interfere and lovers neglected. An immediate housing need may require money to be diverted from enjoyable social events or beautiful furnishings. Set aside some special very personal time, have a great gourmet meal together in a few days when the dust has settled.
  • Oct 23  2:57 PM  New Moon, Solar Eclipse in Scorpio at Zero Degrees. That’s about as fresh as it gets! Venus is also at zero degrees. New Moons represent endings/new beginnings, and so does zero degrees. One cycle has culminated, another begun. We are leaving the queries of Libra, curious about both sides, behind. Scorpio has pretty much made up its mind, and is delving into what is behind the scenes, moving the monies around, placing people in positions per their best strengths, healing rifts. As some are being exonerated, others are being forfeited, clearing the Path for more whole ground. It may be uncomfortable personally, plans don’t turn out as expected, but in about three weeks you will have greater clarity and be glad it all happened. You personally, and every step you take are part of the Divine scheme.New Moons are mergers of Male and Female energy. In an Eclipse they are in perfect alignment. Moon is between Sun and Earth, completely infused with Sun energy, acts as a transformation station, softens and transmits to Earth. As one cycle ends, is burned away potently, the new begins most potently, energized to the max! People say New Moons are quiet times, to be in meditation. I say only if you let it! There is much to be done. Time to put away what’s done and give it a respected place in your household of life or revision to reuse, let it go, give it away! Time to water the seeds cast in the fertile soil that was made! No time to dawdle because more life is on the way! Give it a compelling welcome!
  • Oct 25  9:11 AM  Moon eclipses Saturn followed by Mercury turning direct/forward! Moon and Saturn rule opposite signs, soft flowing Cancer and structured strong-as-stone Capricorn! Both feel their responsibilities to home and providing deeply. Cancers love no matter what; Saturn teaches disciplines to save a life, fulfill goals, strengthen your Soul. The order and timing of things may change shape as Mama Moon takes over. What you feel may become more important than what is expected of you. Your polarity may shift and you find your work become more encompassing, richer. Maybe you see that Mother-in-law in new Light, worthy.

At the moment of the Saturn Eclipse, Mercury is still technically retrograde. He turns direct 12:17 PM Pacific. Three to four days before and after a Mercury turn, Mercury is in what is called ‘Station,’ virtually standing still when observed in the sky. Things are on hold, can be scrutinized fully and more deeply. They can be absorbed, measured for standing value. You may be infused, imbued with more power of the sign it is in, if the station degrees aspect factors in your chart. The conduit Mercury most strongly activates is factors at 16, 17, 18. Those factors will be changed, charged, as you receive the energy day after day, while it is slowed down enough to take it in. Concentrate. Focus.

ZERO Degrees Conjunctions! Venus, Moon, and Sun! Venus and Moon are so feminine, and Sun is all male in its radiant golden Light! That Light may be a bit hidden in Scorpio, but once revealed, more intense than could be imagined! Yellow is Scorpio’s sacred color. Scorpio passion is moulten fiery; ice is when you are on their S list.

  • The Moon conjuncts Venus at 2:12 PM, just 45 minutes before the Eclipse at 2:57 PM. Moon is sipping from the Venus in Scorpio well of sacred mystery. Moon sees deeper than many, receives the gift of beauty that is more than everyday business. Venus is loved no matter what obsession in Scorpio possesses her now. She is treated tenderly, nourished, made to feel safer to brave stepping across the line to an even greater love.
  • The Venus, moving faster, conjuncts the Sun essentially on the 24th, exactly at 0:31 AM the 25th, before the Moon eclipse Saturn and Mercury turns Direct. Venus infuses the Sun with a sense of truer, deeper values, gives a blessing, a kindness, appreciation, affection. It’s beauty as well as money, graciousness as well as healing. The Sun feels honored, renews his mortal promise.

LOVE! THE powerful aspect the Eclipse planets, Venus, Moon, Sun, make is the trine to Neptune in Pisces! Scorpio is your mate for life, Pisces is your ‘God,’ Spirit, Soul of life. Each has profound inclinations including being willing to give their lives for their loved ones, or the whole world for that matter.

  • Venus/Neptune is the classic SoulMate combination. In trine, it’s a chance the favor will be bestowed. In this case the signs are favorable and at a New Moon, a new beginning likely. Scorpio cleanses, restores, rebirths, remembers. With Mercury still Rx in Libra, marital relationships, old loves can come back or current relationships repaired, rebalanced. Sometimes it’s just a review as we realize what is, is, and that we need to let go lovingly as we can. Neptune has ultra sensitivity, so we’re not likely to miss the cues. Be gentle and strong. The profound love of music and beauty can take us well beyond a callous world, a healing offering with no words at all.
  • Moon trine Neptune is a love of all souls, so perfect an aspect to precede Halloween, All Souls Day. Moon is the planet of Cancer, the sign of Mediums, those who can cross the divide to engage beings no longer on this life plane. It’s a form of empathy. Cancer/Moon loves genealogy, things of the past that made us so. Neptune is the ruler of Souls, sometimes lost Souls, whether here or there. Compassion is a most potent ability. Being heard, understood, not necessarily agreed with, but just that someone sees our pain, is often incredibly healing. Forgiveness, atonement, can mediate pain, in a moment cross the divide of schism.
  • Sun trine Neptune goes with ‘God,’ calls our personal heart to the Dream, Vision. It puts Light in the Dark Night of the Soul. It takes our hand and walks before us, sometimes scared themselves, but together we pretend it’s gonna be fine, and it is! It feels good to give, and we forget our own sorrows. Sharing, having a mate, immersed, is a generous devotion, a deep, satisfying wholeness. It reminds and encourages us to really BE ourselves. We can live our lives fully, intensely, right up to our time to go.

Full Frosty Moon!!
Thursday Nov 6 at 2:23 PM Pacific – 14 TA 26 

Blessings and Challenges!

The Aquarian planet Uranus connects the two major configurations of our Frosty Moon! Indeed, it is getting cooler outside, and Uranus, planet of Aquarius, is noted for a cool demeanor. Halloween opened the gateway to the darker under worlds of winter, where magic lays in wait. Now on a moonlight night, we can stand in stillness, hearing the sounds of quiet. Take a deep slow breath. Feel it. Change and chance are near. Life may be quiet at times, but it’s alive.

1)  Taurus Moon, Scorpio Sun/Venus, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries!

Moon opposite Sun with Venus. Oppositions are 100%  aware of each other, especially the Moon and Sun that do it every month, but they are separate too. They need to be. Letting go is a divine principle. Standing alone, recentering, is essential. Moon is so sensitive she needs the distance and not to have to be constantly taking care of everyone, Taurus forever dependable. Let her kick her shoes off. Sun is concerned if he’s doing ok in your eyes. Better to be gone a bit so he can relax and restore, not have to be ‘on,’ a hero every moment. It’s exhausting. Scorpio works when you don’t even see him do it.

Consider the opposite principles here too. Taurus is your personal monies; Scorpio is our shared monies. Both are good, independence and mergers. Taurus is your own body, slithery sensual sex; Scorpio wants to more than just touch you, they want the earth to move! Taurus loves Earth herself, barefooted; Scorpio loves snorkeling, scuba diving, caving, Halloween gravestones! Taurus will do your mask, makeup and hair; Scorpio has invisible charisma no matter how they look!

Two days before, Sun inconjuncted Uranus and trined Chiron!

  • Sun inconjunct Uranus in Aries  They rule opposite signs, Leo and Aquarius, self and friends, community. Inconjuncts adjust. Where we fit in our world, with our self, our mates (Scorpio), needs a tweak. TrueHeart. Unity. Simultaneous discovery continents away. Micro change to macrocosmic shifts of consciousness. How we love our self, honor our mate, is so crucial to planetary growth. Wee moments can trigger the changes of a 1000 years. Bring this to the Full Moon. Initiation. Do it once. Practice. One day your are it and it is you.
  • Sun trine Chiron in Pisces  It would seem powerful fearless Sun in Scorpio would eat Chiron in Pisces for breakfast. Maybe. If they can catch him. Chiron was an immortal who led the crazy centaurs. He was a coyote, a Kokopelli of sorts. He trained medicine men, and in a way was a shapeshifter in giving his powers to others who became like him. Hmm…Pisces, the escape artist, may be the winner, or at least the enchanter of curious healer Scorpio, and Scorpio is hard to impress. Scorpio is tough, but once won, would find Chiron a strong ally, each sharing many things with the other. They would understand each others meaningful nuances with less than a nod of the head. Call for the healing you need.

2)  Venus square Jupiter exact on Nov 9  Taurus planet Venus loves beautiful things, people, homes, clothes. In Scorpio, with Sun, she may want more valuable things, possibly sacred things that surpass the ordinary. There is a need to delve deep for the saint and sinner within, to explore the edge, live a little danger, invest a chance, raise the dead! Jupiter is in Sun’s sign Leo, wants to impress. It’s easy to go over budget and regret it later, or buy something that wasn’t worth it. Be sure of a good return policy, and don’t be proud. Take it back. Not a good time to bet with this square, and the ongoing Jupiter square Saturn hovering.

3)  Allowing a 5 degree range, Mars starts activating the Uranus square Pluto pattern Nov 2. Mars exactly conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn Nov 10, squares Uranus in Aries Nov 12!  No tempting the demons! But it can’t be helped. There is daredevil written all over this one. Mars in Capricorn has more caution than most, but Scorpio’s planet Pluto, never let mere caution stop them. They just have to see it all, enjoy the danger! Uranus in Aries lives for dare! As scientists they are especially successful when they are fanatic. Yet, as career people, Mars in Cap gets to the top over all obstacles. They are super dependable and the job comes in ahead of time. They know where to get best prices, excellent labor perfect for the job. They are perfect advocates, with the facts to back them, for new ventures, updates. They know when to rebel! Mars adds a spark of get-up-on-your-legs out of the office! New ideas to be mixed aren’t half bad, but won’t turn out as expected either. Uranus delights in and is famed for sudden change! All we need is more time, but don’t expect Mars to stick around. He takes the point briefly, makes the point, and off he goes! Prepare to take over at a moment’s notice. Be careful with obsessions, sports, oil and fire, driving, flights.

4)  Prevailing Jupiter close square Saturn in Scorpio through Nov 30. Pluto in Capricorn lives in this combination too because Saturn and Pluto are in each others signs, called a mutual reception! In horary astrology, they can be read in each other’s places. That would mean, Jupiter is square Pluto too! Jupiter square Saturn is like work versus play. Jupiter square Pluto is more like truth and secrets, consequences! Jupiter in Leo is supremely confident. Saviors Saturn and Pluto are both more gritty, face the devils that plague them! They deal with unstable careers, rocky finances, sometimes scary health matters. Jupiter never knew what happened and leads on, trusting all will be well. And why not?! There is a lot of talent behind them! Remember, this is an ‘almost’ aspect. Its matters are in the wind, there for your consideration, but the aspect doesn’t become exact. So make your life better, and keep going.

Wear your cloak, velvet gown, most beautiful undergarments and circle celebrate in the moonlight. Bring offerings of fine Spirits, breads and cheeses, elegant nuts, sweets to delight! Hug, hold hands, give thanks, rejoice!

Full Moon Libra Symbol Holeman
Daniel B Holeman has 4 planets in Libra! To me, this, his Full Moon rendition, makes me think of the Libra symbol!

NEW MOON!
Tuesday Sep 23 at 11:14 PM Pacific ~ 1 LI 08

See  FULL Hunter’s Moon, Lunar Eclipse

The day after Libra starts, the day after Fall Equinox, the Libra New Moon is on the very day of the second to last aspect of the culminating August/September Jupiter set! It’s the day of Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, running concurrent with, followed two days later by, the Jupiter super trine Uranus Sep 25! See all about that!

This New Moon holds a profound position in the new balance we are seeking. We are hopeful for robust harmony, a kind justice, a fairness for our world community, remembering we are part of an even greater sphere. Yet Libra’s words are War & Peace. May we fight well and honorably. We are models. What we do locally, with each other in our relationships, has more influence than we may realize. Think wider. Stand taller that you may see further, actually touch feet to ground in higher levels.

Inconjuncts lead us slightly off center, disturb the scales. This New Moon is IN the Jupiter inconjunct Chiron! It is in a diversion toward healing, an adjustment of teaching technique, a realigning of points of view with a greater truth forging the way. The wounds may be extreme or exaggerated, more apparent, suffered more profusely. It is clear there are neglected needs, understanding is a prime generator for change. Lots and lots of heart may open gateways to a deeper Spirit untouched before. Go with generosity but gently too.

This New Moon is IN the Jupiter super trine Uranus! This is important because Uranus has been in the very difficult square to Pluto since 2010, and this trine is a magnificently favorable aspect opening an outlet, giving some of the challenge a more fun choice! It is offering opportunities out of the dark! There have been profound changes worldwide politically, financially, and with climate change, and natural disasters one right after another. This trine won’t make it all go away, but it does offer worldwide connections, from simple friendship, travel, to unity of organizations that make key change! It opens possibilities from the smallest links in the chain to sweeping international education. Jupiter is in Leo, the sign of the individual, the Light of the self realized Being. Uranus is the planet of the sign Aquarius, awakened people united in freedom, super intelligence. Though of opposite signs, here they work together well.

In old fashioned every day terms, it is a fame and fortune event!!! Plan gatherings, open your doors. Invite the most fantastic people you can think of!

Libra, is profoundly interested in cultural integration, respect for all, has faith in ambassadors. Leo is the relationship we have with our selves; Libra is the relationships between partners of all kinds; Aquarius is the relationships between people in groups and between groups. This New Moon is key to expediting crucial partnerships so more can happen in a good way. What we say to each other, how considerate we are, listening, are what keep us connecting in ways that keep potential alive. One screw up and a thread is broken or lost. The whole is not quite as vibrant. The shape is skewed. Stopping to have to fix it, if it is fixable, delays every thing, every one. Do your best. Make amends when you can. Keep connected in a good way.

As the New Moon ends a cycle, complete the work you have been doing. As the New Moon begins the next cycle, care well for the seeds of the new connections you are making.

FULL Hunter’s MOON, Lunar ECLIPSE!
Wednesday Oct 8 at 3:51 AM Pacific ~ 15 Aries 05 

Fully visible from Western North America, Alaska and Hawaii
Observers in Eastern North America will only be able to see part of the eclipse before the Moon sets below the horizon.

Our Eclipse links two powerful planetary patterns, during Mercury Retrograde, Jupiter ‘square’ Saturn!!

1)  Moon & Uranus, Venus & Sun, make a FIVE planet T Square, the big red triangle, with Pluto at the point!

It activates the Uranus square Pluto that has challenged the World! Mother Moon, of chaos and lunacy is with Uranus of strange and never-to-be-the-same-again! These in Aries can’t wait to make new beginnings as the Full Moon spreads its wings across the night. In challenge with Pluto, dark is quite dark and the stranger becomes the transformer, possible danger or intrigue afoot. Be ready to let some friends go, let others in. Instant direction changes go with the territory.

Across the wheel, opposite Moon & Uranus, are Venus and Sun together at 10 and 15 degrees Libra. Venus in Libra is super attractive in her second sign (first is Taurus). In the square with Pluto, be careful with your money and favors. Be careful what you ask for. The Sun already squared with Pluto Oct 3rd/4th, and remembers the trick that was in the treat. Though Pluto may have appeared to win, no one ever fully gets away from the scrutiny of the Sun’s profound Light. There are limits to what can be hidden. And sometimes it’s the Light that helps us see the way that saves us. Stand your ground, but it’s not a night to go alone.

2)  Quite differently, the Eclipse axis also completes a Kite pattern! That’s a Grand Trine (blue triangle) with two linked sextiles along one trine (the two linked greens), all classically favorable combinations!

Moon and Uranus make trines to Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo! Trines indicate harmony, flow of action though sometimes they are too easy and lazy, or it’s like a greased wheel out of control, too fast to think! Woops! And this is a Fire Trine! No sleeping dogs here! Aries is a primal motivator. The Moon here is not her usual Suzy Homemaker self! :) Oh no, she isn’t! She’s ready to roll and you better keep up! Jupiter in Leo carries the torch, both to see the way and find romance at any moment! Lucky too, certain they will win against the odds, and likely will! Mars in Sagittarius feels lucky too, and is ready to run the marathon! Too bad trines usually bring in the favorites. Moon and Uranus are in Mar’s sign Aries, so there is a rapport. These are fast responders and quick to take the reins of exploration, new events! Big blue skies and lots of view.

Venus and Sun make sextiles to Mars and Uranus! The Sun is in close midpoint to them, equidistant, 15, 16, 17 degrees!  That’s a fast, brilliantly intelligent combination, super at communicating and making instantaneous connections!

Venus, Sun and Mars are going to be fun to watch. Venus and Sun in Libra are more gentile, the engraved invitation sort, polished, polite. Mars in Sagittarius can be uncouth, clown it up and make you laugh! So casual, eye on the horizon. Not a whit concerned with pleasing anyone. But they do know a phony when they see one and can be blatant truth tellers willing to fight for what’s right. They are genuine in their socks, you know where you stand with them. You see what you get, no game playing, no guessing required. In spite of those annoying differences, this threesome can be super attracted. Libra gets over being too nice; it’s more fun than they’ve had in a long time doing some wild things they’ve secretly always wanted to do! And Mars gets some manners. Surprising what a little finesse will getcha. Cowboy poetry is way cool.

Venus, Sun and Jupiter are so romantic! Venus wants her flowers, Sun wouldn’t mind being waited on. Jupiter in Leo will take you on a little getaway, with lovely views, pretty grounds as far as the eye can see. Impressive. Tempting to pop the question, but don’t do it! Moon/Uranus in Aries is an unstable combination that wants independence and freedom, changes in a wink of the eye! Great for research discoveries! Yet, it could be an unquenchable love at fist sight, elopement, a forever marriage! In business ask for what you want, a LOT of what you want. Good chance you will get it. It’s a generous potential. However, do remember that Venus square Pluto. There will be some kind of a price. Make sure the payback rate is doable if it is a loan, or the return favor is ethical. No selling your Soul. Wait and find another way.

Mars and Jupiter start their 5 degree combo Sep 29, will be exactly trine 1:43 PM Pacific the afternoon of this Oct 8 Eclipse! They can travel far with each other, especially since Mars is in Jupiter’s sign! Jupiter in Leo makes sure the accommodations are first class, but get on with it! Mars is quivering in its boots wanting to see what’s next! Teaching is more like leading, but hey, wait, isn’t that just about the same anyway?! New ways, a new touch, new news, a new big horse, new exercise, new things to learn! Spice! A little folk music, country, foreign flavors! Perfect for touring, promoting, publishing, book signings events! It’s a grand saga, a tale worthy to report! Combine social and sports!

3) The Eclipse is during Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio. I could say, take things with a grain of salt because what’s said will be revised, mind changed. Transformed is another way of saying it. But Scorpio just doesn’t go lightly. They want to know what makes things tick, why you said that, who said what, what it means to you, and your intentions. If there is unfinished business, and very likely there is, don’t expect to simply walk away without question. In fact, though it may take some time and effort, things could get exponentially better if you stay present. Scorpio is a fixed sign, tries to be stable, yet believes in profound healing (change). Retrograde can come back again and again until the repairs are all in place and the job wholly accomplished. To your health and wealth!

4) Jupiter square Saturn is a close traveling square, but never becomes exact because Jupiter retrogrades! The principles are engaged, but don’t consummate. They visit, chat, bandy ideas, but no final conclusion is made, papers not likely to be signed.

This is a complex and rich Eclipse! Enjoy every bit of it! Do something sweet with good friends; dance with your Lover!

Jupiter Yod Pluto/Chiron, super trine Uranus to follow!
Inspiring Darkside of the Moon Space Art by boobooi

Sep 22 note: The August/Sep Jupiter set is culminating! Jupiter inconjuncted Pluto, the YOD is done. We are in the last 2 days of Jupiter inconjunct Chiron exact on the New Moon the 23rd! At the same time, Jupiter is making the first of three super trines with Uranus, the first exact Sep 25! Moon in Sagittarius jumps in to make a quickie Grand Fire Trine with them Sep 29! 


Inconjuncts, Yod, Midpoints!
Jupiter’s Timeline, the Pluto/Chiron YOD
Jupiter Super Trine Uranus!!!
X


Inconjuncts, Yod, Midpoints!

2015 will be quite different than the intensity of 2014’s major outer planet patterns, the Grand Cardinal Cross and Grand Water Trine. There are no such big patterns like those, though we do have two repeats of the upcoming September 2014 Jupiter YOD Chiron & Pluto, trine Uranus pattern. This pattern is part symmetrical and part not! The first repeat happens Feb and March 2015. This makes it specially significant, because it is the planetary condition immediately preceding the March 16, 2015 Uranus square Pluto. That Mar 16 square is the final aspect, the assault or Planetary Initiation depending on where you stand with it, the unprecedented seventh of seven times that has been with us since 2010! We are SO up for the finishing of this pattern, its maturity, finally.

Plan ahead for end of August/Sep Jupiter inconjuncts, with Pluto then Chiron, then trine Uranus. They are so close in degrees, 11,14, and 15, that when Jupiter is in the degrees between them, they make a Yod, a Y, while concurrently making the first of the three Jupiter trines with Uranus!

Inconjuncts are to the side, compared with oppositions that are straight across the table. Inconjuncts, also called quincunxes, are for awareness, slightly askew, allow tweaking the finer points, are sometimes a diversion, an exploratory that could lead life in a whole nother direction! From the ‘starting’ planet, the faster moving one, inconjuncts can be to the relative Virgo position to the right, or the Scorpio position to the left, health and wealth. In this Yod, planets to both sides, Pluto is in the Virgo spot; Chiron is in the Scorpio spot. All of these signs and planets are considered healers. Virgo holds the time honored herbalist/midwife lineage. Pluto/Scorpio are psychic surgeons, therapists, hospice workers. Chiron tends long term Soul wounds of suffering, seeks remedies and teaches at every opportunity, both patients and students. You see why this YOD is so important.

From the material point of view, Virgo is the bookkeeper/accountant, tending your monies. Pluto/Scorpio is corporations, major finances of all kinds from student loans to mortgages, taxes and inheritances, funding. By many, Chiron is considered an adept in partnerships and business! Either way, health or business, likely both, this is a potent YOD!

Jupiter adds his charm, optimism, perspective, planning talents! Pluto and Chiron are not considered speedy planets, so Jupiter’s fire picks up the pace! Old-timers may feel pushed, but it could be good.

YOD! The inconjuncts that form the Yod work both outgoing and incoming. They fan out, spreading the word, are inquisitive, sensing the perimeters. Doors are opened in unexpected quadrants. The adventurer receives information, and is infused with what was not exactly expected. Venturing off can be a ploy to escape, a possibly negative distraction, a time out, or an enriching game changer! It is often temporarily unsettling until adjustments are made.

Jupiter forms two important Midpoints, to Neptune/Pluto, and to Pluto/Chiron. Pluto is the common factor. No matter how many degrees apart midpoints are they are potent! The equidistant link between the planets gives an exact connection of transference, neither overshadowing or being upstaged by the other. For a moment there is an equanimity, a poised recognition of the essence of their purposes. The understanding that is possible, can find poignant solutions if not fraught with demands of external perversions of others. The web is momentary, but a glimpse may be all that is needed to instill curiosity, imprint the possibilities. Seemingly out of the blue, major change can occur in seconds!

Aug 24 Jupiter exact at the opposite midpoint of Pluto and Neptune! Jupiter has made this unusual series of 8 aspects, with slow moving Neptune and Pluto within a strict 5 degree sextile, every 12 years since Mar 1951 at 18 Pisces. Then in May 1963 at 11 Aries, Oct ’63 at 13 Aries, Feb ’64 at 15 Aries. May ’76 at 12 Taurus, May ’89 at 12 Gemini. Now after a period of time, skipping Cancer, Neptune and Pluto are again within 5 degrees of each other, we have the next to last Jupiter midpoint to them Aug 24 at 8 Leo! Aug 2027 is the last one, at 5 Virgo. It has covered a period of 76 years. Some of us shall have lived through the entire set! See Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Dreams Come True! and Jupiter inconjunct Pluto!

Sep 25         JUPITER TRINE URANUS 15 degrees

The Sep 11 – 20  JUPITER YOD
  • Sep 5 Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Jupiter ventures into dangerous territory. Big spirited in LEO, its reputation likely precedes it, so may be well received as the bearer of good tidings. One of Jupiter’s gifts, especially in LEO, is optimism and ability to see bigger and better ways to do things, so Pluto may offer a collaboration or merger. Pluto may resist if Jupiter starts delving into secrets, but the secrets may hold the key to ultimate success. Going to be a dance to establish trust. Pluto is in Capricorn these days, so start early, because Cap needs proof over time, for ‘young’ Jupiter to be accepted. Once the liaison is achieved, the good business of life can be sorted. There will be substantial adjustments to the old ways. Jupiter in Leo loves to teach and travel, so the perfect one to do seminars at all the branch offices.At a personal level, there may be a mega questioning of all the sacred rules. Authority may lose the battle to personal preference, a new religion. If the Spirit has been lost or forgotten, it may return home for stabilizing comfort. Any inappropriate behaviors of couples, with children or animals, finances, may be discovered and justice possibly meted out. Stay clean. Father’s, both parental and spiritual, may find themselves rethinking their vows and responsibilities. Timing changes. Careers may be askew, while opened to further options.
  • Sep 23 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces  Jupiter and Chiron know how to teach! LEO has heart and generosity and Pisces has compassion, or needs some. LEO, the sign of the Sun, Lights the Way. Chiron can be the wounded or the healer, sometimes both. Jupiter searches for perspective, how to do the ‘right’ thing. It hopes to establish faith, and give insights as well as be an Oracle. This combination is likely to bring unexpected miracles! When you thought there was no hope, the miracle becomes available. But you have to look for it.Jupiter in LEO can have an incredibly focused beam, burns away, vaporizes along held untruth that has resulted in poor health. It can be a beacon to follow to the specific help needed to break the old invisible chain of fear.  There is never a time when more Light isn’t needed, so be sure to rest up at Chiron’s spa. Take a little hike, getamani/pedi, with your favorite colors! Check out business schools, do some practice interviews. The Traveler might find just the spot to hang their hat for a while.

    Jupiter Super Trine Uranus!!!

    Sep 25 Jupiter in Leo super trine Uranus in Aries! Fire signs HOT! Leo is big, Jupiter is bigger, Uranus is worldwide! Fame for change!! Some children born at this time may be well known, could be super intelligent, exponentially exceeding past generations. These youngsters of the Future, as well as of computers and social networking, will carry the Light! Cutting edge schools may be funded, teachings daringly carried to the most remote areas.

    Leo is solar fire! Uranus is in Aries is sizzling white Lightning electric fire! Leo is the sign or our star, the Sun; Uranus is the heavens! How far can we go?! We may see privatized space ventures take a giant leap! Back here, solar panels and wind machines are on! Electric/solar hybrid vehicles will be more plentiful than ever, and amazingly prices might just come down even as demand goes up.

    Though traveling is likely to flourish remarkably especially air and bike travel, love and friendship will still be the core at heart. Perfect time to go in groups! This trine might even bring some successful innovative heart research to light. Leo and Aries both enjoy athletics, so those who can, may lose some unwanted weight!

    There is an element of separation, letting go, even as unity, harmony is possible. Leo is the sign opposite Aquarius, Uranus’s sign. Leo likes personal and loves being adored; Uranus likes freedom and is easily a loner enjoying their own idiosyncrasies. A certain distance as well as steady recognition of each’s good qualities will go well. Leo and Aquarius are both ‘fixed’ signs. Leo likes its comforts, lazy as big cat at times, loves to be made over and tended tenderly. Aquarius can’t even breathe without the option to be and do as it likes when it likes. Uranus in Aries of independence even more so! You want me to wait on you? Really? Jupiter gets jammed up sometimes with its opinions, and Leo gloriously magnifies those ideas. Ok, better get out the wide angle lens, or your Uranian friend may feel unheard, get really bored and vanish to other realms. Love that Leo best you can, and give each other plenty of room, no demanding, no crowding, no preaching. Ask questions, keep the mind turning, listen with your heart. Share and share your new discoveries together.

    FIERY! Jupiter in LEO, and Uranus in ARIES, fiery signs, will power up the LIGHT! Leo is Heart energy, Uranus electricity turns the Lights ON, and Aries is Spirit, rules the head, where all the controls of perception are – third eye/sight, hearing, tasting, scent, where all the cosmic orders are given to our body, where our animal instincts of the medulla oblongata are! Love and action! Arrow to the mark, make it an Ace, a glorious symphony!

    With the Uranus square Pluto having obliterated a lot of social structure as we have known it, finances, homes, jobs, since 2010, vast openings have been created! This year’s April Cardinal Grand Square crumpled any last resistance for many. We are on Thresholds of deep change. It is fertile time to keep a strong hold on our dreams and visions, to stand for world change with every breath we take.

    How we handle this configuration now, five months before the February 2015 set that immediately precedes the last Uranus square Pluto in March 2015, has a lot to do with the outcomes. It won’t be completely done until the last repeat of the Yod/trine pattern in May and June 2015. At that time the final seeds of the square are disseminated, adjustments made, changes incorporated. Keep the doors open and the Lights on!

Virgo Full Harvest SuperMoon Tree Heart
Falling for You! By artist Jerry McElroy. Of Native American descent, he has close ties with the land and Native peoples.

The Virgo New and Full Moons and the Libra New Moon, are all part of the Jupiter YOD and super trine with Uranus Sep 25! Please see all about that!

NEW MOON, Mars Conjunct Saturn!
August 25 at 7:13 AM Pacific ~ 2 VI 19

See  FULL Harvest SuperMoon

The 2 degree New Moon makes no major 3 degree or less aspects, though it isn’t far from opposition Neptune, divinely placed in its own sign Pisces. MagicLand is in full view, just gotta make the crossing!

What is exciting, are the SIX planets at 16 and 17 degrees – at 16: Chiron, Uranus and Venus, and at 17: Mars, Saturn and Mercury!

The aspect of the Jupiter sequence most closely held by the New Moon, is exact just the day before! You can’t visually see it, but it is still in effect during our New Moon. It is Jupiter exact at the opposite midpoint of Pluto and Neptune! Jupiter has made this unusual series of 8 aspects, with Neptune and Pluto within a strict 5 degree sextile, every 12 years since Mar 1951 at 18 Pisces. Then in May 1963 at 11 Aries, Oct ’63 at 13 Aries, Feb ’64 at 15 Aries. May ’76 at 12 Taurus, May ’89 at 12 Gemini. Now after a period of time, skipping Cancer, Neptune and Pluto are again within 5 degrees of each other, we have the next to last Jupiter midpoint to them Aug 24 at 8 Leo! Aug 2027 is the last one, at 5 Virgo. It has covered a period of 76 years. Some of us shall have lived through the entire set! See Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Dreams Come True! and Jupiter inconjunct Pluto!

The New Moon is immediately preceded by, that very morning, 3 favorable aspects!

  • Mercury in Virgo sextile Mars in Scorpio. Talking and walking, there is lightning fast agreement on what to do. Some questions are answered by watching rather than asking.
  • Venus trine Uranus. Venus is within one degree of where Jupiter will be when Jupiter forms the super trine with Uranus Sep 25! It sweetens the spot for Jupiter! Venus in Leo generously adds grace, makes it bright and attractive! Take a heart touching gift. Let your appreciation shine and bless the coming arena. Share with your most potent friends, and do it quickly! They’re not just standing around! Art for Change. Love for freedom and r/evolution, nothing less! Extraordinary, exotic, electric, extreme creator, intelligence on fire! Leave the lazy fan and the chocolates behind, get on top!
  • And Mercury sextile Saturn. At the same time it could be a great deal on last year’s model, maybe a car, especially electronics! Escrow may close. Practical information from experts and seniors. May be a well earned award. Productive. Keep records, write it down now. Find the key!
Our Virgo new beginning is followed by some serious aspects! Though they are spread along the week, they are all in effect at the New Moon. Saturn is aspected twice; Venus makes two aspects.
  • 12:30 PM Pacific the same day: Mars conjunct Saturn in Scorpio at 17 degrees. The last times Mars conjuncted Saturn in Scorpio were 1-1-1954 and 2-14-84. It is on a 28-30 year cycle, and won’t again until 9-15-2042, then 10-14-2072! However, it does conjunct Saturn, in whatever sign Saturn is in, every two years. If you have planets 15 to 19 degrees, you may be strongly activated. Check with your astrologer to see where the conjunction will be occurring in your chart, which house, realm of life responds.This dance started within 5 degrees Aug 16th. When it’s up and running, it is super productive, outstanding award winning accomplishments, Dharmic action! When not, it’s so blocked you can’t see daylight. Argh. It may be a required forced march, relentless and exhausting, not enough time to get it all done. This is the peak, so hang in. Be as honorable as you can. What you do, or don’t, possibly Karmic action, may have longer term consequences than you expected, for better or worse. Some may feel you have usurped your bounds, others may criticize for your getting no further than you did, you were irresponsible. Remember, it’s you in your body, not theirs. Do your best, measure against yourself, not their expectations. Timing may be a tad critical or downright criminal! Pick your battles. Wait for positive potent moments, put your energy where it will do the most good. Delays are natural, will be part of the process. Sometimes they save us from acting too fast. Poise is what we hope for, that we will have long term success. Well worth the effort. Turn the key of Life!
  • 11:22 AM Tuesday: Venus square Saturn. You may not feel like working. It may seem you aren’t appreciated no matter how hard you do work, it’s just not worth it. Scorpio isn’t usually very vocal with praise, often absorbed in their own work. Maybe you don’t like that work. Leo likes up and about; Saturn in Scorpio is down dog dedicated. Aha! Let’s break through, plant some seeds, ask for what you now see you would like! It may seem like they don’t hear you, yet they may surprise you. They WERE listening! Post some images around you that remind you of what you are seeking. Hang out with others excited about what you do, and will pay the same or more for doing it with them! Raise your rates soon. If you have been too flighty, or me, me, me, then get down yourself!
  • 8:46 AM Wed: Venus square Mars. Again, make sure what you want and what you are doing are in sync. Temporarily you may feel awkward. Getting what you want takes extra effort. Getting to the gym is out of the question. Leo may be unsure what untalkative Scorpio wants. Sometimes Scorpios don’t know either! With no feedback, or when Venus in Leo doesn’t feel wanted or attractive, it’s hard to feel proud and get going. Leo can help with getting some Light into the crevices. Venus sweetly assures, praises, gives Scorpio time to think, comes back to see if there has been a melting, revelation seepage. Sometimes its a matter of deduction from that point. The Gate is opened. Treat it kindly.
  • 7:33 AM Friday: Sun opposite Neptune. Sun in Virgo can do with a little distance from Virgo’s opposite sign Pisces, it’s planet Neptune. Partly it’s the need to feel secure that they won’t get lost themselves. Pisces/Neptune are famous for their foggy soggy ways. Virgo is a clean machine, generally try to be well organized. That is their intuitive way. Being able to observe from afar gives Virgos the best vantage point to get perspective. They can better choose exactly which part of that dream of Pisces’ that they are willing to work for. Virgo offers the best personal health available, essential to thinking clearly, working effectively. Pisces gives them the hope and inspiration that makes them know why those picky details are perfect to do! Pisces forgives when things aren’t perfect, or unfinished, when the Universe takes a big turn! Virgo offers any services it can; Neptune/Pisces keeps it Magical!
Virgo comes at the time of year when our work pays off with harvests. Virgo, that part of our chart, takes care of our daily living, whether it be health or daily maintenance. Nutrition, paperwork, bookkeeping, landscaping, nursing, are all essential to the smooth flow of our lives. Tending our pets, landlord/tenant relationships, housekeeping, washing dishes and laundry have to happen. New ways to store our foods for winter, household tips, better eating for our health, getting help with our work or documents, are all kinds of ways life can flow more smoothly. Doing work we love lets us enjoy life and live longer! Renew your contract with yourself! Implement your better choices. Whenever you think of Virgo, think Harvest!

FULL HARVEST SUPERMOON!
Sep 8 at 6:38 PM Pacific ~ 16 Pisces 19

Last of the three-in-a-row SuperMoons! Bigger and brighter! Appears red through ‘any sultry haze.’

Importantly, our Harvest Moon is just before the September 11 to 20 Jupiter YOD! In that period, Jupiter is within 3 degrees of both Pluto and Chiron. It is exactly opposite their midpoint Sep 14! Inconjuncts/YODS are marvelous aspects that allow a release of pressure. There is opportunity to slip aside to explore and assess possibilities that may have seemed impossible before, or even forbidden!

Full Moons have a way of bursting at the seams! There is Light at Night! You could be seen or in shadow. There’s maximum reach into magical dimensions. This one takes that Virgo Sun right out of her chemise! Pisces can have the most extraordinary experiences without ever leaving their meditation pillow! An extraordinary concert works too!

Missy Moon has just been with Chiron, so she is full of profound insights about healing and relationships. Venus is now in Virgo too. The New Moon was opposite Neptune, now Venus is. She could use some of that super feminine mystic quality. Compassion and Beauty, work of the Spirit. Not a bad combination! Don’t be surprised to be set up with a blind date that works! If you are keeping house, put on your favorite maid or slave outfit! Or pretend you are at school in your schoolgirl/boy uniform. Be gentle with the ruler, you hear?

Saturn in Scorpio is as obsessed as always, is keeping timely tabs on expenses, funding, deadlines, a combination of perfection versus utility, getting paid on time. Moon and Chiron don’t mind, they are happily in trine to old Father Time. Mama and Master are in agreement over necessities, part monetary, part magic. Long awaited monies may come from surprising sources after all! They may celebrate each step of the way, a merry crew, a grand finale expected, then all escape together after the project is done!

Uranus in Aries is going a bit crazy with all that work ethic going on. Jupiter in Leo, coming into its super trine with Uranus, agrees, they need to let off steam, be silly and laugh! They are happy someone else is working. They might pitch in, especially if it was their idea in the first place! Let them be the collaborating consultants and they will be clever beyond words! Fame is lovely.

Sep 5, Jupiter inconjuncted Pluto. Secrets may still be being tracked, coming to light. Some are still being manufactured as we speak. A Full Moon reaches into very dark places, and Pisces into the finest tinyness, where things were thought to be invisible. If a secret is a necessity, guard it very carefulIy. If you need to save a life, don’t hesitate, speak up! Jupiter can sometimes be unkind, without even realizing what they did, not knowing the consequences the Truth would have. Too much, too soon, too, too, too. Pluto, and inconjuncts, can sometimes sidestep the felony. Pluto and Pisces can mask, retreat, protect. They can also heal a deep injury, a contamination of Spirit. There are times it is best to relinquish a frozen hold, let go the stone of sorrow, despair of worry, nettles of hate. Jupiter may rudely laugh, but after a stunned moment, you may find yourself gladly laughing right along with them! What was I thinking?!? You are probably stronger than you realize!

The harvest of this Moon prepares us for the 5 day later Sep 14 Jupiter exact opposite Midpoint of Pluto and Chiron! It tunes us in to paying attention to fleeting thoughts, subcurrent themes, refines perception. Venus and Mercury are in each other’s signs, called mutual reception, each pointing the same direction! Super intelligent chess player Mercury in Libra square Pluto tries to balance Pluto’s dark in/attentions. There really is no escape from its seeing, level below level. It names the powerful achievements made that might have gone by unnoticed behind their shields. Though challenging, possibly dangerous, Mercury secures a living breathing link to Pluto’s vast storehouse of ideas. Liaisons are made with beauty seekers bridging the way. Pure, deeper motives, beyond the veils, below the fear, are drawn from the Well. We transform, release the primal pungent fragrance of Life!

Pisces Neptune Listening Adam Scott Miller
In honor of Neptune, Listening by Australian Visionary Artist Adam Scott Miller

Aug 14, Jupiter inconjuncts Neptune, a one time engagement, Jupiter’s first major aspect in Leo! It opens up the soft spot before the Sep inconjuncts and trine! Letting go becomes easier, the path is cleared. It’s like grease for the adjustments to come, so change can slither right in. Magical answers sought. Incoming accepted.

It may start with Neptune’s down home denial. Nope, not mine, I don’t believe that, not on my page. But Jupiter teases and tangos until your angle changes and you see it! You are somehow standing right in it, and you are ok, wondering what to do next! Jupiter is right there with their never-to-be-questioned answer! :) And it’s fun!

Fear is a very good reason to avoid both bad and good! Oh, God, what would happen if that box was opened? Put on your coping feather cape, learn how to comfort yourself and self soothe. Baby steps are 100% acceptable. Confident Jupiter is a good pal to walk through the gate with you.

Jupiter exaggerates, and in Leo totally enjoys melodrama! But they make things ridiculously big, and sometimes we have to laugh at this caricature of life. And there may be real catastrophic events, losses, a full on maelstrom. Or it feels that way to us. Neptune in its own sign Pisces, is very sensitive. What bothers others not at all, Pisces cries for, imagines worse. But Neptune also dreams the magic, has visions of beauty and spiritual purpose. They are magnanimously compassionate, believers of the first order. Miracles happen! Jupiter pushes them to see the purpose they came here for! Being so optimistic, Jupiter is a believer too!

When Neptune is up, feeling good and alive with the dreams, Jupiter can join up and amplify that magic right over the top! Education for the cause, event planning, tours! It can be inspiring music, colossal art, major ocean voyages, a chance change of spiritual wisdom. Jupiter, with its books at the temple, thinks it is the teacher, but Neptune, in meditation, subtly morphs and the Listener often becomes the Master!

Soft doesn’t mean weak. It means you have the strength to be gentle, the refined attention to be super perceptive, and have the Wisdom of Spirit to back it up. Jupiter wants the Truth, and Neptune carries the Dream. The Sacred Portal is YOU. Take your conscious dream with you as you go into the Sep YOD, and super Jupiter trine Uranus. Stay focused so you become famous in a good way for your true wishes and purpose.

Planetary Backdrop 

Uranus square Pluto Continues…. May 27, 2010 to March 16, 2015  The major outer planet shake-up combo, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn, continues throughout 2014, finishing Mar 16, 2015.  Two exact aspects are formed in 2014.  These two are five and six of the seven, April 21 and December 14, at 13 and 12 degrees.  We are almost done with them, just a little more than a year to go. Time to finesse financial affairs. The series has been as low as at 6 degrees; the last aspect, Mar 16.2015, will be at 15 degrees.  At one time or another it has probably activated something in your chart.  Or maybe it hasn’t yet and will these last times.

There will be several planetary challenge activations of the square as the Sun, Mercury and Venus go through Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, making their annual circuit, and as Mars challenges from Libra and Capricorn on its two year circuit.  Planets in your charts from 7 to 15 degrees in those Cardinal signs will be strongly affected as the transit planets go through.

Aspects Tallies  Per the classical major aspects of astrology, of 22 aspects, there were 12 favorable aspects and 10 difficult aspects in 2013.  2014 will have 16, 7 favorable, 9 difficult.  2015 has 13, 3 favorable, 10 difficult and of 16 in 2016 the ratio is 3:13!  I’m encouraging my business clients to get stable and well founded before 2015 and 2016, be ready to hold the fort and ride the waves.  Be in jobs and businesses or investments that thrive in hard times and in recovery.  Things happening since 2010, and now, are not over and done with.
2014 brings two outer planet sign changes.  Jupiter leaves Cancer and jumps into fiery Leo, telling taller tales than usual! performance ratings will be high!  For the majority of the year, Saturn, the TimeKeeper, stays in the comfort of dark Scorpio where it tends to finances and healing.  Dec 23 it moves into Sagittarius, to get out into the world and travel a bit. Actually, the Goat doesn’t mind those mountains a bit! It is surefooted and frugal by nature.

Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

NEW Year’s Day 2014 opens with a Capricorn NEW Moon that has a 5 planet Capricorn Stellium!  That’s double New!  Capricorn focus and intentions are on work, fathering, building, climbing.  Solidarity, conservation, protection, right timing.  Bending the knees, but not burdened.  Archetypes, archaeology, human and spiritual law.  Profound tests, responsible leadership, senior wisdom.


Wedge to Cardinal Grand Square

Allowing a 5 degree range, Jupiter retrograde in Cancer opens the year starting a Wedge pattern (opposition base with a trine/sextile third point planet) Jan 6, and activating the Uranus square Pluto for an extended time!  It will be opposite Pluto at 12 degrees Jan 31, trine Chiron at 11 degrees Feb 5.  Chiron holds the energy as it sextiles Pluto at 13 degrees, the 5th of five times, Feb 25.   That same day, Jupiter having been slowly retrograding, for the 2nd time, and intensely in a same degree station, squares Uranus at 10 degrees, turns direct only 5 days later, makes the 3rd, last of 3 squares to Uranus April 20 at 13 degrees!  It opposes Pluto at 3:58 PM Pacific!  It is making a 5 minute, not degrees (60 minutes in a degree), exact outer planet T Square with the Uranus/Pluto square all day the 20th!  April 21, Uranus squares Pluto the 5th of the seven times.  You see how tight this pattern is.  Plus, April 8, Mars retrograde in Libra has come back, forming a 12 day Grand Cardinal Square!  April 20/21, Mars now at 14 Libra, is the pepper in the pot, making it a hot one degree CARDINAL GRAND SQUARE!  This one won’t be swept under the rug!  In order: 

  • Jan 31 and Feb 5 Jupiter, Chiron, Pluto Wedge is first – Secrets will out, healing will happen, plans will be made.  Step up to the plate, you can do it! 
  • Feb 25 Chiron sextile Pluto – Fear of power and success, betrayals, jealousy, spite, scorn, revenge, have a chance to be let go.  Time to let go of denial, do honest business with yourself and others.
  • Feb 25 to April 20 Jupiter square Uranus – You could run away, far, far away, but it won’t get the job done.  Not usually.  But if necessary to save yourself until you are stronger, do it.  You may lose some friends and find others in unexpected places.  Shed the alliances that are no longer working.
  • April 20, 21 Cardinal Grand Square culminates – The temptation is to exaggerate, and that may be temporarily necessary to make your point, get people to think.  If you get heated, take time out immediately.  Don’t say or do something that can’t be taken back.  With Pluto in the mix there may be no forgiveness this lifetime!  Some will want their way and appear to use any means to get it.  Others will show extraordinary kindness in the face of great difficulty.  This Grand Cross involves personal and home and family matters, marriage type relationships and business.  There will be a lot on our plates.  Be informed.  Take your best stuff to the negotiating table.  Put yourself in the other person’s place, but stand your ground.  If negotiating can’t work, let it go with what Grace you can muster.  Avoid blaming; do your part.  Get what you can get in a good way, or don’t do it.  But if you do, know there will be a price down the road.

Here is the Grand Square (red square lines) chart on the 17th with Venus in the mix! She trines Jupiter, sextiles Pluto, semi sextiles Uranus, all at 13 degrees!  Carefully played, and choosing investments relative to this chart, plus having some good aspects in and to your own chart, in spite of the Grand Square, this could be a money maker! Good luck!

April 20 2014 Grand Cardinal Square Venus Astrology Chart

Also along this outer planet T Square trail is the sizzling electric Mar 30, 2014 Aries NEW MOON!  It is a double three planet stellium chart – three planets in Pisces, three in Aries!  The New Moon is at the cardinal signs T point of the Jupiter opposite Pluto – see the red triangle?!  The New Moon is conjunct Uranus, the planet of earthquakes and Lightning, a Wildcard!  There will be lively Uranus in Aries challenges in spite of momentary New Moon blahs.  Perhaps the vibrancy will be within.  Friendships will end and begin. You will likely have concern about finances, but be too busy or not have the patience to deal with them. Oddly, they might lie still, barely simmering, maybe the lull before the storm! Hopefully the promise is renewal. Sudden changes may unsettle, but be for the best in the long run.  Be careful with electrics, fires, weapons and planes.  Be cautious of too much trust or way too little, overdoing your exercise, over eating or not eating at all.  It may seem like a dash in a moment, but there could be unexpected long term consequences.  There could be courageous breakthroughs, or entirely missing the boat.  You can see this is a perverse set!  Bottom line is use your intuition in the moment. Don’t start something you can’t finish or will regret later – no tantrums. It is just as honorable to let go, not participate, though your feelings may go crazy wanting to stand up and shout! Be willing to move on.  To thine own Self be true.

May and June Jupiter links
Chiron and Saturn in a GRAND Water TRINE!

Jupiter comes into a 5 degree range May 3, May 14 exactly trines Chiron, the last time of three. May 24 Jupiter has moved forward totrine Saturn, the last time of three. May 20 is the closest configuration of all three at 18 Cancer 17.  June 12 Saturn trines Chiron, the 4th of five times, which carries on continuously within a degree until the final 5th of five aspects, Aug 5, completing the entire set.

This is the culmination of Jupiter’s tines to Chiron and Saturn! It is a marvelous business trine!  Jupiter is generally prosperous, has terrific ideas. Saturn is the guiding light, stabilizes, is the Builder. They are so happy together toward the same goals! Chiron is uncannily aware of pitfalls, and knows how to heal the problems, tends and perseveres, keeps the troops in good shape. At the personal level, it’s a great time to see your healers.

This could be a good marriage time, but there are details, so get practical astrological advice, and be sure things are marvelous to your chart as well. If it’s good, you will have a solid relationship, each contributing.  It may be a romance of seasoned partners, professionals, educators. Travel and different cultures could spice things up. There will be touching understandings, a deepening beyond words. Congratulations if this is your time!

This IS a WATER trine.  It’s steamy if with fire, hot tubs, or puts out fire. Sizzle then fizzle. Earth provides a good old barefooted play in the mud, or reroutes the creek. Water flows downhill, the course of least resistance – follow them! Install a pond on your property and stock it! Or get that soothing fish tank!  Air and water are San Francisco-foggy – lost, passing like ships in the night, or magic and mystic though softened and soggy. Water with water is immersion and baptism, totally merging, no need to speak. Follow the currents….


July 16 Jupiter leaves Cancer, enters LEO!  See Sign Changes

Aug, Sep Jupiter Makes Three Inconjuncts 

  • Aug 14 to Neptune in Pisces – Allow the vision to expand and include ideas of other cultures
  • Aug 24 is when Jupiter is at the exact opposite midpoint between Pluto and Neptune, 8 Leo 44
  • Sep 5 to Pluto in Capricorn – Seek the unmitigated Truth and have fun doing it!  Funding may be right around the corner, literally!
  • Sep 14 is when Jupiter is at the exact opposite midpoint between Pluto and Chiron, 13 Leo 2
  • Sep 23 to Chiron in Pisces – When you thought there was no hope, the miracle becomes available.  But you have to look.

Inconjuncts are oblique aspects, when planets are 150 degrees of each other. They are to the side, just off center. There is extra perception as the environment is scanned, resulting in more accurate choices in context of the greater whole. When the wild ball comes at you, you can duck.  When you are alert to business or equipment advances, you can prepare to benefit from the upgrades, stepping into opportunities gracefully, with less cost.

Equidistant aspects are considered to be potent! Midpoints are not as commonly used in the US as they are in Europe, but they are even more powerful factors when triggered by a third planet! Since we have four planets in this sequence, there are two healthy midpoints, Aug 24, and Sep 14.  As the planets are moving these dates are when each of the three points are perfectly equidistant!

Jupiter and Neptune both like going places.  Jupiter is the traveler, body and mind, seeking right action, a broader perspective through learning.  Neptune travels in Spirit, meditation/mindlessness – another form of mind, seeking connection with the Soul, often crossing oceans to do it!  Jupiter expands, revels robustly! Races, rides horses, skis, skates while Pisces swims, rides the surf, sails!  But Neptune/Pisces sometimes sits until they become invisible even to themselves.  Jupiter can cheer up a laggard Neptune, give them ideas that the Neptune then drops into the subconscious to dream about.  Neptune sees the nuances and makes subtle coarse corrections that save the day!

With Pluto, Jupiter may have to dance quickly; the snake will strike if you tamper with it too much.  Better to tone it down a bit and match pace while prodding the reptile.  Yet Pluto is astute, especially in Capricorn, and sees the value of what’s being offered, even if they don’t use it the way Jupiter thinks they should.  There’s always a reason for our connections.  Pluto can take a wildly optimistic idea of Jupiter’s, distill it to core potential, sort out how to make it happen, profit from the results. We marvel at what they see and do. So if it seems like they are skeptical and didn’t really hear you, wait and see anyway.  Check back.  Think more on it yourself and bring more of your ideas back to the table too!

Jupiter is so well intended and healthy, usually, and Chiron is teacher/healer too, but some of their grace comes from having suffered.  Jupiter’s way is to educate you, get you moving, stretching your muscles to get you to reach for it!  Chiron is more quiet, serious, perhaps.  Daily it tends the sick, observes, works with deeper consciousness, sometimes at Death’s door.  In Pisces it doesn’t leap to conclusions, but flows here and there seeing context, primordial wounding. Sometimes it is important not to stress the patient/client/friend before they are ready. The body can’t heal if we don’t let it. Some things can’t be fixed, or it may take many lifetimes. They understand that and give comfort as can be done. When they can, they will meet you in the dreamtime. If you get bogged down, forget your direction, as healer or client, Jupiter will come by, snorting fire, and blow life right back into you! If Jupiter is the lame horse, take yourself to the healer! Chiron will scold you a tad as they kindly tend you.

Dec 14 brings the last exciting aspect of the year. It is the sixth, NEXT TO LAST, Uranus square Pluto!  Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely FOR 3 MONTHS, at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015!

Dec 23!  Saturn enters SAGITTARIUS!  See Sign Changes

Two Sign Changes, Fire Signs Leo & Sagittarius!

Beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales - Grace and Strength
Budweiser’s beautiful brutes lead with amazing grace and strength!

2014’s sign changes go well with the Chinese Year of the Horse!  Leo loves horse races/polo, and Sagittarius rules large animals, horses!

July 16 Lucky Jupiter leaves Cancer, enters Leo, the sign of GOLD!  Jupiter loves races, stretching its Pegasus wings!  Time to travel in style to all the hot places!  Leo is athletic and Jupiter loves games; both love to win!  Both like to share and teach.  Speeches will be peppered with personal anecdotes, stories will be inspirational!  Start an athletic school, a training center, do coaching!  The meaning of life is important from the rights of the tiniest beings to fanatic believers.  It will be the time for super heroes!  Market graphs may have quite highs and lows!  Climate changes may seem to speed up, especially the melting part.  Drought, fires, water could be serious matters.  We may need water consolation as well as conservation.  Be plenty mindful where you choose to live for an extended time, like where you retire.  Learn to use the land well and how to generate your own climate, food and power as much as possible, or link up with people who can do that.  Permaculture skills will prove to be valuable.  Invest wisely for your future, your children’s future.  Against a serious economic backdrop, we are kicking it up a bit!  Entertainment will be glorious. Overconfidence will make big spending, gambling, tempting.  Know that Jupiter takes about a year through each sign.  Keep your long term investments trim, choose the medium home versus the luxury home or apt., eat less ice cream!  :)  You can always go bigger later if things stay up for you!  Jupiter’s next sign will be Virgo, starting Aug 11, 2015.  Then we will be trimming the fat, possibly have dry times. In the meantime, stay cool (it’s gonna be hot), stay true, have a great time!

Last time Jupiter was in Leo was Aug 2002 to Aug 2003.  Iraq was fought and conquered.  Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrates during reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere, killing all seven astronauts aboard.  In the wake of the Sep 11, 2001 attacks, the Department of Homeland Security, the largest U.S. government reorganization since the creation of the Department of Defense in 1947, was created.  Annika Sörenstam became the first woman to play the PGA Tour in 58 years.  In Mexico, the last ‘old style’ Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the assembly line.  The summer of 2003 was among the warmest in the last three centuries!  It was the first time temps over 100 degrees, highest ever, were recorded in the UK. France, hit hardest, had seven days of 104 degree temps, resulting in 14,802 heat-related deaths (mostly among the elderly); and there was a severe heat wave across Pakistan and India that peaked at 122 degrees!  Leo, Martha Stewart, was indicted.

Dec 23 Saturn enters Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius!  While Jupiter has been partying in Leo since July, Saturn has been finishing Scorpio.  Saturn in financial Scorpio sees what it has to pay for.  Romantic relationships will either fizzle as the party charm wears off and accountability happens, or things will take root with the spending level as it is.  Saturn in Sagittarius now knows what to plan for, all the way out to longevity and Social Security.  It is intent on education backed up by what has happened in the Past, statistics and research that point key directions.  Travel will be only as essential.  It may not be the time to start a travel business or import/export, unless it is for everyday items at the best price.  Rocks, walls, borders, glass, ice, may come to some sort of prominence.  Saturn and Sagittarius are quite acquainted since Sagittarius comes first, then Capricorn, Saturn’s sign in zodiacal order.  Sag loves its freedom, roams the world and places of expansion and learning.  Saturn gets back and does business, as their Father did.  This is the combination of both of those. The responsibility Saturn takes prospers from the perspectives it gained while traveling.  It builds well situated on the land, strong from the foundation to the roof, using perfect slopes and slants for rain or snow, sustainable for hard times.  It always builds a back door, when possible, a well structured-cellar.  Doubter, seasoned life walker, faith healer, all have valuable points of view.  Fearful or friendly, stay as open as possible to opportunities that may take you further than you ever expected.  It could be the Gateway of a lifetime! 

Saturn will retrograde back into Scorpio June 14, 2015 to Sep 17, 2015, be in Sag two plus years, until it enters its own sign Capricorn, Dec 19, 2017.

Saturn was last in Sagittarius 27-29 years ago Nov ’85 to Feb ’88 and June to Nov ’88.  Windows 1.01 was first released on Nov 20, 1985, just three days after Saturn entered Sag.  The first international version 1.02, was released May 1986.

1986:  The first PC virus, Brain, starts to spread.  Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrates 73 seconds after launch, killing the crew of 7 astronauts, including schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe.  Halley’s Comet reaches its perihelion, the closest point to the Sun!  Chernobyl nuclear disaster.  Hands Across America: At least 5,000,000 people form a human chain from New York City to Long Beach, California, to raise money to fight hunger and homelessness.  The Oprah Winfrey Show premieres.
1987:  Harmonic Convergence!  Oct 19 Black Monday: Stock market levels fall sharply on Wall Street and around the world.  Thomas Knoll and John Knoll develop the first version of Photoshop.
1988:  NASA scientist James Hansen testifies to the Senate that man-made global warming had begun.   Al Qaeda is formed by Osama Bin Laden.  The Iran–Iraq War ends, with an estimated one million lives lost.

Horses! We ride; they serve. In times past they did work we couldn’t do ourselves. They have long been a symbol of going places on the winds of the Four Directions, whether of seasonal necessity, or simply wandering the beauty of our planet. Today, they are serving in a new way, as therapeutic beings. The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.), a federally-registered nonprofit, was formed in 1969 for individuals with special needs.

There are Horses, and there are Horses! In these two new signs, take yourself places. Whether you are magnificent in your harness, possibly incredibly well cared for, or are roaming free, make it glorious! Take excellent care of yourself; you are a good animal too. Strut your stuff and get your bookings! See what’s next, what it’s all about! Call on the thunder of a Clydesdale; run like a racehorse, your hair flying! Enjoy the safety of your Circles and set yourself free!

Retrogrades

2014 starts with back-to-back series of retrogrades involving Venus, Mercury and Mars. The series goes through May 19, 2014. Read More!

Mercury  2014 has its standard 3 Mercury Rx, each of them straddling water and air signs, Pisces/Aquarius, Cancer/Gemini, then Scorpio/Libra. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections.  Water signs bring a nurturing quality that keep those ideas and connections alive and thriving!
Venus directs Jan 31, 2014, finishing the Capricorn retrograde it started Winter Solstice, Capricorn day, Dec 21, 2013!
Mars  No 2014 retrograde.



Stelliums – Powerful Gatherings of Planets

The most simple definition of stellium is 3 or more planets in the same sign! Use these for sign specific emphasis, concentrated focus and as areas of expertise. The House/s where they occur in your chart is what you apply your focus to! Many planets in one sign give you many ways, options, to approach a specific area! You might be out of touch with other things, but leave that to people with that kind of emphasis. Simply let others know that’s not your department!

4 Planet Stelliums:

  • Dec 21, Winter Solstice Day, when the Sun entered Capricorn, we started the stellium with four planets, Sun, Mercury Venus and Pluto.  Dec 31, the Moon joins making it five in Cap!  Jan 2 we go back to four until Mercury leaves into Aquarius Jan 11.
  • Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Sun in Libra!
  • Oct 23 Scorpio starts with a stunning New Moon conjunct Venus – Moon, Sun, Venus all at ZERO degrees at 2:58 PM Pacific!  New Moon, New Sign, New degree!  Saturn 22 Scorpio is the fourth planet.
  • Nov 8 Mercury starts a second Scorpio stellium that goes 5 days until Venus leaves into Sagittarius Nov 16!  Mercury, Sun, Venus, Saturn.
  • Nov 20 – 22 we get a third Scorpio stellium formed as the Moon goes through Scorpio!
5 Planet Stelliums:  Dec 21, Winter Solstice, starts the last and only 5 planet stellium of 2014 in Capricorn!  The New Moon leads the way from ZERO Capricorn!  The stellium continues with 4 planets, Sun, Mercury, Pluto, Venus, after the Moon leaves, starting New Year 2015!  Jan 3 Venus enters Aquarius, leaving only three planets.

6/7 Planet Stelliums:  None in 2014.  Then next 6 planet stellium is Jan 16, 2018, at another New Moon!  It starts with 5 planets Jan 10, has 6 Jan 14 to 17, then is back to 4 on the 18th as two planets leave.

January has TWO New Moons, the first is in Capricorn on NEW YEAR’s Day, JAN 1! The second is Jan 30 at 10 Aquarius 55, the day before Chinese New Year’s Day! So both January New Moons fall at a New Year! The 2nd is also the day before Venus turns direct, and Jupiter makes its 2nd opposition Jupiter!

February’s FULL Moon will be on Valentine’s Day!

February’s NEW Moon will be at 11:59 PM Pacific on the 28th.  Other lower US zones will have no February New Moon!  Theirs will be on March 1!  For them, March will have TWO New Moons!

Five New Moons in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, are all at ZERO degrees!  We are truly starting new at each Sign change!  From then on, they are at the last degrees of their signs, finishing each sign with a lunar touchdown before the new signs start.

In Scorpio, Saturn will continue to guard us; Jupiter will continue to flourish in Cancer then Leo.  We will have a Wedge pattern that becomes a Grand Square in April, a Grand Water Trine in May/June, and an inconjunct series in August/September. And we get to see a few good eclipses!  May your 2014 travels take you exactly where you want to go and may every step be wild and magical!  Blessed be!  See 2012 Worldwide New Year images!

If I don’t see you over the holidays, I’ll see you NEXT YEAR!
