Full Frost Moon!

Nov 22 the Sun leaps into Sagittarius at 1:02 AM Pacific, on ThanksGiving Day! The stage has been set. The Full Frost Moon is that evening at 9:39 PM Pacific, 0 Gemini/Sagittarius 52! It’s on Nov 23 at 12:39 AM EASTERN time!

Mercury Retrograde. T Square, Kite, Cardinal Grand Square ~ all linked! 

Sagittarius 2018 Full Travelers Moon
This one is called the Beaver or Frost Moon, but this year we might as well call it the Travelers’ Moon! It’s on ThanksGiving Day and whether you are going home to be with family or taking advantage of the holiday to take a trip, many are going to be on the road or in that plane! 

AND, this is the first lunar event, and I do mean first, it and Jupiter are at zero degrees, with Jupiter now in his own sign Sagittarius – the planet and sign of travelers! Apropos it is since the Full Moon spans Gemini (Moon) to Sun sign Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter, on the first day of 2018 Sagittarius!!! Arms open wide, Moon and Sun cross the dimensions. Gemini is fascinated by every single encounter with any possible living or inanimate thing at its fingertips! Sagittarius would walk 100 miles to see what is over that next hill and who might be there! Gemini thinks 100 miles a minute while Sagittarius is contemplating what it all means and is making plans to go another 100, knowing there is more! 

Mars sits at a T point to the Moon, Sun and Jupiter! His temperament is very different than theirs. They are chatty and heady compared with him in Pisces. He is a leader, but in Pisces can take complete silence. He can lead from behind or within, yet get him on a pulpit and the fire comes out! He can surprisingly lead the fray, an inspired compassionate leader in behalf of those who suffer. He is sensitive to what needs doing now to save the most later. His sensitivity avoids mistakes, gets right to the heart of things.

Sun and Jupiter are backed by a Grand Trine/Kite that finished Nov 19. Sun was in Scorpio then, received advice from Chiron in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer. Chiron gave tips on healing the Soul, the helpless and hopeless, other leaders involved with planetary healing. The Cancer North Node impressed Sun with the organic need for food and shelter, cleanliness and emotional support. Sun now in Sagittarius wants people to know, and put programs in place to get people on their feet, to be able to be contributing citizens.

Moon sits sextile midpoint between Chiron and Moon’s own North Node. And, she is one point of that T Square! She links them. First, as sextile Chiron and the Node, she too got the information Sun and Jupiter did! Where Sun & Jupiter in Sag are promoters, the Moon rules our shelter, women, children, the public at large. She knows the feelings of the times. She’s like a weather barometer that helps us make our moves at the times best for their reception. Sextiles of water and earth, she was in Taurus then, blend understanding and application. Taurus wants it to be anchored and long serving. Now in Gemini she’s spreading the word, getting thinking going. Next thing you know you are on the volunteer list!

There is a Cardinal Grand Square too! Cardinal signs get things going! Uranus is the Chief in Aries, leader, first responder! He thinks in terms of from the loner to all humanity! Getting one pivotal key person started can become an avalanche of success, worldwide achievement! Venus, in her own sign Libra, is sweeting her way along mending rifts, introducing strangers of great differences, blessing the day with beauty. She explains legalities and has teeth when she needs them. Don’t underestimate her. The Moon’s Nodes are the second axis – Capricorn south, Cancer North. We have been no nonsense business people before, building solidly a day at a time, supervising the troops, buying time, doing research and testing. Now we are adding in Cancerian caring, nurturing with quality food and comforting, offering personal support in community matters, the Sacred Feminine. Children are our treasures of the future.  

Uranus sits midpoint semisextile between Chiron and Moon! He links all three configurations, The Mars T Square, the Grand Trine and the Grand Cardinal Square. These are all action oriented combinations.

Venus is no longer retrograde, but Mercury is now since Nov 16. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde! It’s especially significant to this Full Moon since Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Communications are essential to spreading the good word. When Mercury/Gemini exchanges across the table to Sagittarius, he knows the information will go far and wide for free! Sagittarius loves telling stories, educating, sharing perspectives, opening minds to a vast array of information. Travel blogs to tomes. The retrograde function keeps reviewing, stirring the pot, incorporating insights that have come along.

Mercury squares Neptune. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Retrograde makes for a lot of quick mind changing. Neptune too can go either way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Saturn is making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see the many facets that need to be harmonized. The ‘shifting sands’ of these mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius can be like quicksand swallowing you up, or a mixing bowl bringing each thing that needs work to the surface so it can be dealt with. Mutable signs are known to be in motion, adaptable – sometimes accommodating, other times taking you with them! 

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

Astronomical note! Our Full Moon is occuring at the same time as what is called the Pleiadian Alignment that started Nov 15, finishing Nov 23, the day after ThanksGiving! Earth, Moon 0 Gemini, Sun and the Pleiades 0 Gemini are precisely in a row! They were known as the Weeping Sisters, in old horary astrology, something to weep about. Lord knows we in California have had just that with the deadly Camp Fire and the sad losses with the Woolsey Fire. Some organic astrologers equate the weeping with rain. We are hoping for a steady light rain that our scorched land can absorb. The Pleiades are also called the Seven Sacred Sisters, with various mythologies about them, feminine, intuitive. Please allow a special channel to flow between us all. Blessed be. 

Also, take some special time this Full Moon day to consider what to do and make plans to do it. Review the 2019 Annual Special Edition. Jot notes in your calendar. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Start as you can. Expect intelligent modifications to occur, a few natural mistakes. Mercury is retrograde, changing things on purpose, and it shouldn’t all go as planned, but, in time, even better! Evolution is the constant of change!

New Moon!

Thursday December 6 Mercury DIRECT 1:22 PM Pacific then the New Moon at 11:20 PM Pacific, 15 Sagittarius 07. It’s on December 7 in all the other US Time zones east of Pacific. 

Mercury Direct! Jupiter in own sign & New Moon in Sagittarius! Grand Square, Grand Trine, Mars/Neptune, 15°!

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

Photographer Dave Lane says a storm just passed before he captured this beautiful sight at Yellowstone National Park in 2015. He spent 4 months color-correcting the night time images to match them to the natural colors seen in the daytime at Yellowstone National Park. See the image large! See Dave’s photography tips!

This is the first New Moon during Jupiter in Sagittarius and the New Moon is IN Sagittarius! Hallelujah! It’s a double Sag chart plus Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. This is a 12 year restart for Jupiter! Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. And it’s the perfect support  for Jupiter! In his sign Sagittarius, Sun shines for him and Moon can feel the Sag messages so important to share! Make notes! Schedule to review and update them from time to time!

Mercury is no longer retrograde! Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio Dec 1 and Venus enters Scorpio Dec 2 at 9:02 AM Pacific. Mercury entered an intense Station (appearing to standstill) for 8 days in the last degrees of Scorpio! The Scorpio messages will be steeped, condensed, focused on, anchored in place. Decide what you want to keep as core guidance, let the rest go. Your foundation is set, move on with Venus’s blessing. Mercury turns direct, forward, Dec 6, the heart of the station, on the Sagittarius NEW MOON! The turn, very slow at first, has been made. After the next four days the findings will start being released, momentum will be gained. Mercury returns to Sagittarius Dec 12. He will be downloading the information to Jupiter Dec 12, leaving nothing out, until he conjuncts Jupiter Winter Solstice, Yule, Dec 21! Venus will be left behind on her own, still in Scorpio. See more: Venus/Mercury Retrograde Back to Back!

This chart is rather simple – you can see in the chart there are few aspects made – the color connector lines. What is exciting is that the point of the red triangle and the big blue triangle are linked!

There is the red, triangle that actually represents a Grand Square of Uranus, Venus and the Moon’s Nodes! It is quite odd in its combination. Uranus is in fire sign Aries retrograde. It will be squared by the Moon’s North Node in it’s own sign Cancer, also retrograde. Since the node moves faster, it will make the square while both of them are retrograde. Uranus in fiery Aries couldn’t be more his own man, complete loner to a leader of humanitarian efforts. Either way he is consumed, others have to come to him. Moon’s North Node in its own water sign Cancer is more likely to stay home unless it is a matter of taking care of the children. Venus is also in a water sign, Scorpio, still close but leaving them both behind. Water signs are usually trine, a harmonious aspect, but here they are square, somewhat at odds yet in compatible signs. It’s a similar setup for Venus ‘opposite’ Uranus. Oppositions are usually in opposite signs, which oddly have some compatibility. In this case they would be Aries/Libra – fire/air or Taurus/Scorpio – earth/water. But these are not. They are Fire/Water. Could be steamy, but Venus, of Libra has had enough of that upstart Aries, no finesse she thinks. Or she is impressed, and takes up his cause. In charismatic Scorpio she is looking for love and money, or wants to be around involvement with deep healing skills and centers for homeless, hospice, addictions. She’s blessed and not afraid of the dark side or being behind the scenes. Oh, the juicy secrets! She is not just a pretty face; she will do more than expected and more than we will ever know. Give her the reigns, yet check on her from time to time for your own peace of mind. 

There is the blue Grand Water Trine. The Moon’s North Node links the Grand Square with the Trine. Trines are considered a blessed configuration and the North Node too. North Node is our aspiration, balance with the South. In this trine, Mercury is exactly at the same degree and minute, giving deeper facts and wisdom from Scorpio, who has faced life and death. The North Node in Cancer wants to protect its own, so is quite grateful and now more able to secure resources and the safety of loved ones. Though the Node, always moving backwards through the signs, and Chiron are parting, Chiron in Pisces saw the weak points and showed the Node how to apply healing of spirit, as Scorpio showed the Node healing remedies. In turn, The node offered a nurturing place to stay, free of obsessions and addictions, instead a safe place with innocent babies and children that give us the reason to say clean and sober, to not stray from the organic reasons for being here together. Many times healers need to heal themselves. This trine is a great gift.

This trine helps calm the red lines. Uranus needs to be free, but how free? We are all a part of each other. We breathe the same air. Be free to be sweet. Pay more attention to the living beings around you doing the best they can. Be free to be able to receive love. Being touched by the Spirit of others makes a living difference. Venus in Scorpio can be enamored with her own seductive beauty that may be the source of her money. She may forget she too is a part of a web of dear humans that would love and admire her for more of what she is rather than what she has. They will love her when she is wrinkled and gray. She may be so wrapped up in giving healing she forgets herself. Open those pretty eyes, lift that chin, see and feel the love people have for you. Keep the balance.

The New Moon itself not in either pattern! In fact, it is virtually standing alone numerically. Both Moon and Sun recently squared Mars and Neptune, but, traveling faster, Moon and Sun are leaving them behind. What they will carry with them is the spice of Mars’s dreams while he has been close with Neptune. Mars has been inspired by Neptune’s amazing insights. Mars isn’t noted for being subtle, but he is in Neptune’s sign with Neptune. He is being steeped in Spirit. Aligned, he sees the vision too. Neptune is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mars is the planet of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac! It’s alpha and omega, the beginning and the end! What one starts the other must end. What one dreams the other must begin! Both are planets of Initiation, one through perceptions and visions, the other through the action taken in their behalf! Leadership is often born of what we see that needs saving.

Mars makes the exact conjunction Dec 7 at 6:12 AM Pacific, so essentially, the daytime operative hours are the same day as the New Moon! Two beginnings at once! It is also true that Neptune and Pisces may obscure your vision and accuracy. You or what’s out there may seemingly be ‘invisible.’ Please be careful if you feel tired, distressed, or even super ‘high.’ You may not be as invincible as you imagine, and poor judgment may be your undoing. It’s ok to slow down. We are all on God’s time. Illusion and confusion, intentional deception, could take you on a wrong lead for a time. If necessary, admit your mistake, get help if necessary, and get back on track. Some of these experiences will strengthen you. You won’t fall prey again, and you will guide others away from these traps. The other side of that same coin is a breakthrough! Your perception may be so heightened you can see like never before! You are guided to do the perfect right thing at the right moment. Blessed be. If you are in water sports, you could be the impassioned winner, the hero of the day!

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16° factors in your charts! The Libra New Moon Oct 8 started a 7 month series of New Moons at 15° of their signs. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15° midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. This one in Sagittarius will square the one in Pisces and trine the last one in Aries. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. The master Capricorn Solar Eclipse Jan 5, 2019, however, the first 2019 lunar event, will be midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs in the series! A lot will hinge on his decisions and influence the remaining three, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries.

Saturn is still making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit.

Pluto is still pondering, likely will be strongly for a couple more years, how he took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! He now, Kundalini and Phoenix style, is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! It will be an ongoing responsibility to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. 

This New Moon is strengthening our purpose. It’s about making meaningful and realistic plans about things that matter to our future. It’s the walk of a lifetime.

Jupiter Scorpio Sagittarius Kangerlussuaq Airport Signs Greenland

Kangerlussuaq Airport at Kangerlussuaq, Greenland! Greenland is a massive island and autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. 

Jupiter is in Scorpio most of 2018, can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time. Saturn, newly in his own sign Capricorn, takes charge, sets limits, helps with timing and designating responsibilities! It’s time to get down to business. If Scorpio is on board, they can get huge amounts done, will have tremendous personal satisfaction. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it, find our rhythm!

Now is the time to go places that have long been on your bucket list. If you are well traveled, it’s time to go places a little more obscure, adventurous, and possibly a tad dangerous! Puts a keen edge on things! But do take care of yourself too, please. Scorpio likes something with a deeper meaning, maybe underwater or underground! Islands and molten lava might do. A place with a remarkable history as a sacred place. If you live at such a place you may receive more visitors than usual, and they will be more intense. Make things safe for them and yourself.

Jupiter likes doing international business and Scorpio likes corporate, or maintains strong integrity and won’t be bought. That combo has the ability to merge forces and do things a single person couldn’t do alone. There may be new branches established in unexpected places, franchises formed.

There are likely to be some secret alliances, and some long term marriages made. Keep very clear about your intent and appraisals of what’s up. Sometimes a permanent residence change is the right choice to keep away from temptation, live in peace, until you are strong in yourself.


As of Nov 8, Jupiter finishes 2018 in his own sign Sagittarius, is in Sag most of 2019! Be ready to travel for travel’s sake!! Jupiter just wants to SEE! One place leads to another. Sagittarius is a ‘mutable’ sign, 100% adaptable! Every place had special knowledge, wisdom of its own. There are adventures everywhere. Just think of the multitudes of extraordinary places there are in the US – every country, continent has their own as well! The learning curve just angled UP! How much can you take in during one year?!

Fiery and spirited Jupiter and Sag call for honesty. They seek the big Truth and that often includes religion. The purpose of Life is important. Big smiles and playfulness often show us the way. Faith and hope often get us places that seemed impossible. But Jupiter has a lucky component personally and financially, often enjoying a long healthy life! If you have offers, seriously consider trying them.

Sometimes Jupiter and Sagittarians get caught up in their self-righteous opinions. No! Yep. It especially happens when they have just come across some new brilliant piece of information, or person! It can happen when they get scared and feel the need to protect themselves, or a favored mentor, a lifestyle, culture. If we agree, it’s fine with us. If we think there is a better idea, not so much. If they are on center stage, catch them at a quieter time and don’t embarrass them. Ask them questions. Ask them the pros and cons of their ideas. Ask them about their opinions of some alternatives. Give them a bit of time to think. They are generally always interested. They truly want to do right; it’s part of their basic fabric. If what they are saying is inappropriate somehow, do what you must do if it is damaging to someone. Sometimes they can be really blunt and not realize their effect.

Babies born in this Jupiter in Sag time will most certainly have some big opinions later on! They are supposed to. Sometimes these important, fresh innocent opinions, make them the fine teachers they become!

All those journeys and fascinating perceptions and perspectives can easily lead to a blog or a book, thrilling reading! You can tell when people are bluffing, have the experience or not, and you could be an astute publisher! Universities, schools would love to hear you talk, give entertaining programs. If you don’t get to travel, attend these events, festivals, be a promoter, own the bed and breakfast and meet the travelers every day!

Sagittarians are fun, but not necessarily marriage minded, especially this year! They love their freedom and get bored easily. After all, they have seen so many things! When they get twitchy and start losing attention, they are just about to go again. Traveling together is your best bet. Business together with lots of buying trips, imports & exports, travel businesses, international tour guides, lecture tours, information sellers. Gambling addictions might be their worst sin, or just plain running away. They aren’t exactly procrastinators or lazy, not even irresponsible. There are just other things to do… They love the horses, polo, races of all kinds, games. Skating! Surfing in summer, skiing in winter, above or below the equator!

Philosophy, a just cause, may catch your heart now. You may travel like a missionary or read up on the intricacies of what needs to be done. It may feel like the time has come to step up. And you will be glad you did. It may be a once in a lifetime experience, or become your life!

Jupiter in Sag is great for fire signs, and air signs Libra and Aquarius. The rest may have some challenges of one kind or another when Jupiter arrives near those factors in their charts.


Galactic Center 2009 NASA

NASA image of the Galactic Center

Jupiter, in its own sign Sagittarius, is the host of the Galactic Center! That means Jupiter will be right AT the Galactic Center at one point while it is in Sagittarius! Jupiter will get very close to it April 2019 when it goes stationary retrograde at 25 Sag, and then the doors are wide open at the exact conjunction about 7 AM Pacific November 19 2019 at 27 Sag 07! 

Per the Cosmic Intelligence Agency (chuckle): The Galactic Centre is the point around which our whole galaxy, The Milky Way turns. It was discovered in Feb 1974, fittingly with the [Moon’s] North Node at 27° Sagittarius and Saturn at the South Node. The Galactic centre moves like a fixed star at the rate of precession through the zodiac at 1° every 72 years, forward in the tropical zodiac (as the Aries point moves backward) and is currently [was] at 26°59′ Sagittarius. At this centre is a super massive black hole [4 light years wide], a galactic gravitational centre, a huge cosmic womb of sorts. What we know of black holes is that they are massive forces of energy sucking in everything around them, yet full of power, potential and creation. The core and key of the birth of the galaxy itself.  It is as big as 4 million suns. It is 25,000 light years away. To give you an idea of how far away that is, Alpha Centauri our closest star is 4.3 light years away, with mega giant star Betelgeuse 642 light years away.

The 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic, and 2019’s Mercury across the face of the Sun – Transit of Mercury, are strictly local by comparison! Both are related to our one Sun, whereas the GC is the center of billions of star systems! Yet, by closeness of dates and degrees, the Transit of Mercury Nov 11, eleven, eleven, and Jupiter at the GC Nov 19 are very much related, virtually happening together! At the Transit, Jupiter is at 25 degrees Sag, less than two degrees of the GC conjunction. The Transit of Mercury is closely linked with the Ecliptic event and the GC event! It is perhaps pivotal between them. It is the observer of the year following the Ecliptic event, transmits to the Sun and the Sun to him, then Jupiter is the go between of Earth and the Galaxy! Mercury is considered the neighborhood planet, where Jupiter, his ‘opposite’ planet, is the traveler spreading the good word far and wide, giving meaning to Mercury’s data and incorporating it in his big plans! This is a BIG party! 

It feels like you have the whole Galaxy at your fingertips! You reach out so far you can forget where you came from! And it doesn’t matter. You just be the best you can be everywhere you are. The Galactic Center, GC, is a monumental point of infusion of collected Light of all the stars, not just our Galaxy but other star systems as well. Open your mind and Spirit as much as you possibly can. Don’t bother about articulating or judging it; absorb it. You can sort it out later. If you, as one person, want to be heard, when there are events at this point in the zodiac, be sure to vote! We are heard collectively. Humanity progresses as it can; joining up with the Galactic Beings can boost the process.

Those of you born Dec 17, 18, 19 are potently connected with the Galactic Center by birthright, always tuned in to its frequency. You are lifelong channels for the rest of us. Some of you are conscious of this connection, for others it is yet to be discovered. The rest of us, with chart factors at 26, 27 and 28 degrees of any sign, don’t forget your midpoints, are connected as well, but we receive, translate and disseminate information from our own signs – all of us components of the whole cosmic web.


Jupiter’s sign change into Sagittarius is preceded by an eventful NINE days started by that Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event! See more!!!
Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

Pluto will bring more Light than ever thought possible! Light on Light, Light in the Dark! Jupiter with Chiron further opens the gates of healing and teaching in water signs Scorpio and Pisces. Uranus back in Aries restores unions of leaders of leaders! We WILL proceed. The Scorpio New Moon finds the deepest re-solutions. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus finds an alternate Path to skirt the blocks, open new territory. PathFinder Jupiter in Sagittarius knows just where to go and keeps the Faith!

Over the Rainbow, we see above all, through all the colors. Knowledge expands infinitely, never a moment the same. Wisdom is elegant.

May your travels be guided and blessed!

Scorpio 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Scorpio ~ Strength and Wisdom 

Scorpio Benka Pulko Motorcycle Woman Guinness

Contrary to perceptions, many of the most accomplished long-distance riders are women. Slovenian Benka Pulko’s story starts in a way many riders can relate to: One day in 1997, while laying in bed and pondering turning 30, she decided that life was short and she needed to get on a motorcycle and travel the world. The trouble was she didn’t own a motorcycle, and didn’t know how to ride. But those were just details for Benka.

She returned home after five and a half years, having ridden all seven continents (first woman motorcyclist to do so continuously), 75 countries and 111,856 miles on her BMW F650. Her marathon ride landed her in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest solo motorcycle journey by a female in both time and distance. In the process, she became the first woman motorcyclist to reach Antarctica.

While traveling through Dharamsala, India, Pulko was moved by the plight of the children of the Tibetan diaspora. As a result, she launched the humanitarian organization “Believe in Yourself and Kickstart the World”. The primary goal of the foundation is to promote, encourage, and support the education of children with limited opportunities in different parts of the world. The organization primarily focuses on providing scholarships to students of Tibetan Children’s Village, and ensuring female students have equal educational opportunity.

There’s her short story, mainly sourced by Bob Whitby, himself an adventure rider, and Wiki.

Scorpios are famous for dangerous adventures, solo, plenty of strength, survival against long odds, and caring deeply. They are terrific therapists of mind or body because many of them have been there themselves. They often handle huge sums of money, another dangerous passion, and do stunningly well, or go bankrupt. But do they let that stop them? Of course not. They keep at it until they figure out how to work it.

Relationships can be very bad to very good and lifelong. They can be mean, jealous and possessive. We hear that. But they can love you and keep you profoundly in their hearts and their very Soul, tending you to the end. Sexuality can be an eyes crossed orgasm to a sacred experience beyond any words. Maybe those are the same, LOL! There is no guessing whether you have been loved or not! Sometimes though, you wonder if it is love or money? It may take some time to figure that out, but it never hurts to get credit reports and a background check on potential partners or on the Scorp if it’s you being pursued by them!

Health can be at extremes. You can be broken in hospital, not expected to recover, but you do, and faster by far than predicted! Keep your interior body clean, detox your bowels. Some things just don’t go on forever. Relentless repetition can wear your body parts out and bite you back. Be smart about your sex, who you have it with, keep it clean.

When we say keep it clean, it means a lot more to a Scorpio! They want the whole planet to be clean – our air, our water – the oceans, the land – Earth herself. We want it to be clean for ourselves, our children. Kudos to you litterally for making our world a cleaner, safer place for all of us – protecting animals, trees, birds. And for recycling – reducing toxicity in all ways possible!

Sometimes you are beyond gentle and kind. Other times you have little patience with people who have no idea about the world at large. You know how much criticism can hurt, your poker face well in place, so you forgive at times without others ever knowing how lucky they were and how generous you are. But there’s only so much one can take. At times the storm clouds take over. You can speak out in a fraction of a moment and are so right everyone gets it and there is complete silence. Zero come back. You can be incognito, invisible, yet that in itself is a powerful presence. Ones who feel and see will know you are there.

Charisma is one of those invisible powers. People may follow you for no apparent reason. You may be blessed with a sincere and meaningful following. Charisma can be used in drawing people to be healed until they can do it for themselves. For many it is a connection they have never felt before. It pulls them further into life to learn about love. Know your power and use it well. When they discover it is a part of you for all people, they may be sad to have to wean themselves. It is a vulnerable time. You need to disengage cleanly. When you see it coming, introduce them to more people they can admire and be inspired by.

Scorpio journalists are to be held in deep gratitude. They go to wars, disasters, into criminal organizations, illegal medical situations, investigate toxic waste. They don’t always make it back. They intend to bear witness so we can all make our world a better place. Their words and images tell a real story. It can be pain and suffering, or successes that make us smile and feel safe. We retell those stories from our own hearts and share as if we had been there. One by one, little by little we change. We try to anchor the good and keep adding more.


Sometimes there is strength before wisdom, but either way, it’s a winner! Please always be safe and heal well when you need to!

Scorpio 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Libra Astrology Highlights 2018!

“The giant sunsets are a whole other world on the (Bolivian) salt flats. At sunset, with the reflection, you can see two suns moving fast at each other until vanishing into the horizon.” By photographer Eric Paré

Scorpio 2018 Timeline!

October

23  Happy Scorpio!
24  Full Hunter’s Moon!
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

November
1  Jupiter Trine Chiron only once
6  Uranus Sign Change back to Aries
Scorpio New Moon, Jupiter inconjunct Uranus
8  Jupiter into his own sign Sagittarius!


Scorpio’s year starts with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto crossing the Golden Ecliptic
 at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! This is particularly important to Scorpios since Pluto is their planet!!! There is an intense 10 day period Oct 30 to Nov 8 with multiple aspects that will take several years to assimilate! See more! These events occur during Venus Retrograde that is followed back to back with Mercury Retrograde Nov 16! See Venus/Mercury Rx! We will need those 2019 aspects with Neptune to understand and come to working solutions.

Scorpio’s year finishes with the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury, Mercury crosses the face of the Sun for hours! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032. Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit are linked by degrees – sextile, the Sun, and both happen in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign!

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are making five sign changes in Scorpio’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Sep 25 Chiron retrogrades back into Pisces, Nov 6, Uranus back into Aries. Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron enters Aries permanently, Mar 6, Uranus into Taurus permanently.

Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again! Now in Pisces, Chiron will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and restored.

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

By November 2019, all SIX of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s Box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser. If he approves, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Scorpio’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Scorpio 2018 – November 2019!

Scorpio Women White Water River Rafting

Scorpio happiness! Immersed, extreme, testing your wits! Reid Williams thinks women are better paddlers than men!

Scorpios, your planet Pluto is still in Capricorn, but this year it makes a rare 248 years aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic right during Scorpio Oct 20, 2018! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris will be burned away, be having a fiery bath of Light, cleared to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers will increase exponentially! He will give that very energy to Sun and the Light itself will be more clear and radiant! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio, will be cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. Neither Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this will test them.

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

Pluto has been sextile its own sign Scorpio since 2008, finishing Jan 2024. Since they are related, a lot of business has been efficiently done. Takes one to know one, they are comrades. They have common purpose forming relationships, both personal and business. They know how to help each other health wise. Each has made potent discoveries, sometimes bringing abrupt life changes. They can be taken down, but that Phoenix usually rises again, stronger than ever, with attendant revelations!

Neptune is in his own sign Pisces. He 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 sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Scorpio can be smooth as silk. Pisces flows everywhere it can, both in water and Spirit! It reads our Soul and cues Scorpio to those most important factors about us, the ones that show up when the chips are down, or that may be appealed to when Scorpio needs help. Pisces, sometimes in deep pains of addictions, knows when to grant mercy and can call the Scorpio hounds back from going too far. Neptune is tuned to Scorpio himself, sensing what needs clearing, how we may successfully become the Phoenix that rises above pain and harmful obsessions to be the dedicated hero!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in the last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future ideas that Taurus will anchor and 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, so they can effortlessly be carried on.

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

Aries and Scorpio are both warriors! Aries is at the front line, saving people right and left! He saves their bodies, but brings them to Scorpio to heal their PTSD. Scorpio makes some new friends too. Aries is independent, so much so he doesn’t always investigate before investing, but has the zest to keep up anyway! Scorpio is inspired to take a few more chances. When he can, Scorpio sits Aries down and explains some of the facts of monetary life and helps Aries steady up his finances so life will be better as he ages.

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

Taurus is an Earth sign; Scorpio is water. Earth clogs up the drains or keeps the water where you want it. With Uranus, the planet of electricity, involved, some hydro power is likely. Uranus is Taurus is just crazy enough to spark the interest of Scorpio. Taurus can go slow enough not to startle sleeping Scorpio to some magnificent extreme reaction we had hoped not to awaken. Very few can tiptoe by a sleeping Scorpio volcano… Scorpio may be very attracted, but Uranian Taurus is born to be free. He shares extraordinarily valuable ideas that make Scorpio wish Uranus would stay here always, but part of how Uranus keeps the electricity flowing is by quickly changing locations and mental parameters, engaging and energized by each new energy field encountered! And, after a time, Scorpio could tire of this constant change, unpredictability. Please, come back for a visit!

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

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

Chiron the Healer/Shaman is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Scorpio loves that depth of intensity, delving into the meaning of things, solving mysteries, putting things to right. Medical research and work suits them. Coming to terms with sexuality, poverty and wealth, addictions, the death processes, are challenges they have the capacity to undertake.

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself mythologically carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Scorpio watches, waits, wonders whether to join the fray! Aries doesn’t give it a thought, makes a leap for it, and generally their intuitive response is right on. Scorpio is not afraid of danger, but they certainly pick their battles. However, they are more likely to be excited by how Aries seems foolhardy, but also how surprise and quickness are on their side. Scorpio may join in before anyone even realizes, doubling the surprise factor! Aries can be quick to love and leave, whereas Scorpio often mates for life. Scorpio may give it a go, but Aries wasn’t born to conform, so Scorpio will need to be able to grant a wide latitude. Scorpio can be jealous, even possessive, and that will never work with an Aries unless our Aries has some Scorpio in their own chart too and they happily possess each other! Bottom line is you can’t keep what can’t be owned!

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with your own Saturn 4 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through November 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return, 58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. These days I find myself knowing many 90 year olds! A lot of us are now experiencing that third Saturn Return about age 87! Some are alone, many friends, even family, gone. Others are surrounded by friends and family, the Matriarch/Patriarch! Some struggle with health, financial matters. All are consulted for advice – what did they do that worked?! They share their wisdom and give comfort. Many are standing strong. They know what they like, and they are still learning, taking and teaching classes, running businesses! They have a mixture of gruff and grace that catches your attention, often making you feel tickled and smile with admiration!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn gets along just fine with Scorpio. Scorpio admires Saturn’s competence. Saturn may point out Scorpio’s obsessive behavior and Scorpio doesn’t mind at all, because Saturn offers counter solutions that really work. Scorpio finds he is more truly himself rather than the prisoner of his own obsession. His performance improves tremendously. Saturn shows Scorpio how to shift his attention to what he deeply wants, that is a bigger draw than what he was mindlessly doing before. It’s practically a miracle! Saturn shows him how to choose a productive long lasting personal partnership that includes financial success accompanied by a Soul connection that means everything. Don’t settle for anything less. That bond is a special gift of life. Scorpio sees the kinks in Saturn’ boxes, loosens up a few of Saturn’s screws, and off they go to the pub together, arms across each other’s shoulders, laughing uproariously with delight!

JUPITER moves from 26 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

Lucky Jupiter has been in your sign Scorpio this last year, goes into Sagittarius Nov 8! In these last few days it wants you to finish up what healing you can do, take complete notes on how it is done. It wants to heal your relationships and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential while you do it! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may have taken Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you weren’t healthy, are still not up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius is no longer in the self-protective Scorpion on-the-ground place, but is the mighty horse striding along, and the cheerful funny lucky storytelling traveler. Everything is fine as long as he doesn’t go around making up stories about Scorpio! Scorpio carries a deeper note, prefers the journey might be more as an observer, the shadow behind the scenes. But when Jupiter tells the stories, perhaps as a parable, and it really is funny, Scorpio realizes he is human too, and has less to protect than he thought. He sees Jupiter’s luck, how he lands on his feet so much and so easily, Scorp thinks he might be able to do that too. Cosmically, Scorpio is a Sagittarius in training, Sag being the sign that follows Scorp! On a journey, seasoned traveler Jupiter allays Scorpio’s financial concerns. Jupiter jumps right in and chats up the locals. Scorpio can relax his martial arts posture, though it’s nice to know he’s got your back just in case. Sometimes Jupiter is a little quick with his opinions. Could be a bit dicey at times, and he learns more about consequences – not just for himself but others too. Be a little more thoughtful and respectful. We don’t always realize the effect we have. If he messes with Scorpio too much he will learn personally. Jupiter is more likely to go into a new place with an open mind. Scorpio can have his mask on and people may not trust him nor he they. He often loves a little danger, but Jupiter will show him the courage of learning, being connected with a smile.

Jupiter either comes streaking through our lives like a comet, is the owner of the bed and breakfast, or the university prof! Jupiter certainly has a multitude of ideas about styles of living, the meaning of life, and from his broad experience, you never know what he will say next! We are curious, thinking of taking on an adventure of our own. You too might become a travel agent, a tour guide, paying your way by being the Guide, publishing travel tip books, writing an informative blog readers pay to subscribe to! Sagittarius is noted for longevity and Scorpio is inspired to learn more about that!

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

Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde 2018 Face Cup Fingers Flowers

The Mercury Mind Combined with Venus Art! What a Cup of Tea!

About retrogrades! 

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

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

Venus, Libra’s own planet is first! Her complete cycle spans Sep 2 to Dec 17! Mercury follows, his complete cycle Oct 28 to Dec 24, Christmas Eve. Venus goes direct, forward Nov 16 as Mercury starts his retrograde the very same day in Pacific time! Venus starts in her own sign Libra, goes forward into Scorpio, turns Rx in Scorpio. She is predominantly in Scorpio. Mercury starts in Scorpio, goes forward into Sagittarius, retrogrades in Sagittarius, predominantly in Sag! Not only are these Rxs linked back to back, but both planets spend time in Scorpio, making it the pivotal sign between them.

Three signs! Venus establishes awareness of the value of Libra and Scorpio, both relationship signs. She whispers sweet things to Mercury the Messenger! He can’t resist spreading the word, thinks and thinks about what she said as he goes along. Each time he tells the story it is a little bit different, maybe a bit bigger too, LOL! He uses Scorpio wisdom to jump start Sagittarius. Sag wants the meaning of things, especially those things! He makes plans for it to come true! Where Scorpio, knowing the darker side, doesn’t alway trust, Sagittarius trusts Scorpio to remove the greatest encumbrances. Sag has faith all will become well no matter what. He is an excellent Pathfinder and the best ways will be found! He’s good at finding them.

Venus Retrograde Oct 5, Direct Nov 16 Pacific!

Venus Retrogrades from 10 Scorpio 50 back to 25 Libra Oct 5 to Nov 16. The whole three part cycle starts Sep 3, finishes Dec 17. Venus is in her own sign Libra loving beauty, gracing relationships, making introductions, dancing, appraising and balancing values, organizing gatherings. Venus in Scorpio wants more. More return on investment, a deeper relationship, beauty is not required. She depends on her inborn charisma to get her through the dark scary places and dares to go there. Do not underestimate her. Her love is a healing all its own.

Venus retrograde hostesses the Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and the remarkable 10 DAY sequence that event starts! She is at retrograde at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side Nov 8 as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

Being retrograde, Venus goes back to connect any people conduits still needing to be made. The connections are necessary for Mercury Retrograde to go back to share all the exciting information that has been scooped and gathered – especially about the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Libra and Scorpio both are people oriented signs. Libra is social, often holds gatherings in behalf of a cause. It has charm, grace, and understands local and international etiquette. Libra is often involved with anthropology, museums, world arts, plays and symphonies. Scorpio knows your secrets and hopes to make $ with you, love with you, or heal you from the inside out! They are masterful at transformation, have remarkable recovery powers! Mercury will be in Scorpio twice while Venus is, so its a direct transference, specifically when Mercury conjuncts Venus Oct 15! You might connect with a kiss!

Venus makes no aspects during her retrograde cycle. Mercury makes only two aspects during both their entire cycles and both those aspects are to VENUS! Sep 3 Mercury sextiles Venus during the first of the three phases at 25 Leo/Libra 33. They conjunct Oct 15! These back to back retrogrades are indeed linked!

Classic Venus Rx carefuls are don’t expect new relationships to be forever. Be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Better to wait on beautification projects ie remodels, painting your home that color, purchasing a home, new wardrobes, related investments, cosmetic surgery, hair color changes. MAKE BACKUPS OF ALL YOUR DESIGN WORK AS YOU GO ALONG during Venus Rx, but especially during Mercury Rx!

Remember, where our attention goes, our energy flows! We don’t mind when good things come back to us – especially in Venus Rx! A retrograde can find the favorite sweater we misplaced, an old sweetheart may return (be cautious), a beautiful design may continue to be revised, to get better and better! Breaking up is hard to do in Venus Rx. It’s just not over yet and may be fully saved though least expected. Focus on the positives.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 16, Direct Dec 6 Pacific!

Venus asks ‘Who Loves you Baby?’ Mercury says ‘What?!’ It’s down to love and money and whether you sign the papers or not! Venus loves the sensuousness of relationships – body beautiful, exquisite art, intricate sequences and blends of symphony sounds, intricate cultural anthology, and right on down to the fine local handshake with someone you just meet! Venus connects us person to person. Mercury connects your minds, a thought to a thought. It’s not what you say but how you say it. Listening is just as important as speaking, hearing heart to heart. The Venus people connections, and connections with the greater world around us, will expand Mercury’s capacity, his scope of mindfulness, give him a more sophisticated outlook, a greater capacity of attention! Limitless, really.

This last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 retrogrades from 13 Sagittarius 29 back to 27 Scorpio 16 Nov 16 to Dec 6. The three part cycle starts Oct 28, finishes Dec 24, Christmas Eve! Mercury starts in Scorpio, attending to what ails us and the power within us! Secret alliances may be made, but eventually, Mercury will spill the beans. Be ready to make the most of that. Have your explanation script ready and use the revelation to our betterment. Keep your documents handy and facts at your fingertips. If you have been wanting to talk with someone for a long time, this may be your opening. Rxs are good for reviews, but not final resolutions. Share, but don’t sign. In Scorpio don’t be surprised if you are masterfully seduced, but it would truly be better to wait until you know this person well or until you see more of how the situation comes out after Dec 6. If you invest, make it so you can back out instantaneously, or wait. An old health matter may come up again and this a perfect time to take care of it, get to the root. Or, research it, then, with your astrologer, set a surgery date a week or so after Dec 6. Double check security systems before, during and after Mercury Rx in Scorpio.

There are trip itinerary mix-ups, the plans change, the school, courses and instructors don’t pan out. There can be weight gain as we snack mindlessly while we nervously try to make a decision. Health matters involve something that is too much, too big, hips/thighs. We can pull a muscle just having a great time or racing. Not fair. Gambling can be a too much. Horses, big dogs, be careful. Photography blunders of panoramic vistas may appear to be a mistake, but later prove to be valuable for something you didn’t realize was in the image! Keep them all! Opportunities may come back in an unexpected way. Wait to see more, yes, until after Dec 6.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall though. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Even then, have a backup plan.

Sagittarius has such optimism! It may be just too good to be true, or Sag may be just so lucky as to succeed against the odds! We may find that lost winning lotto ticket! That would be ok! You may feel to revive your blog. Things have changed and you’ve got great new stuff to say. People can use that info! Resubmit for publishing. Play with the idea of going somewhere you have always wanted to go. Bet there’s a way you can do it! Good luck!

Mercury, not Rx yet, is at 29 Scorpio when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! But 9:39 PM Pacific that evening it goes into Sagittarius! Mercury’s main job this time, and during the following Rx, is much more important than the usual mixing up your travel plans! It follows not only Venus Rx, but the major Pluto/Ecliptic event TEN day sequence! Some of those whose charts are connected will be reeling! Mercury is ordained to be the Messenger of what that all means, from deep and dark to the brilliant light of the Sun! It’s a perfect job for Mercury in Sagittarius! Sag automatically sees the best of things, the perspective of past to future, collects the data, makes the plans, and with faith filling its heart, teaches the Way! That is especially important because the last event of the 10 day sequence is Jupiter going into its own sign, Sagittarius!

This Venus Retrograde is important not just for being retrograde, but for hosting the intense 10 day Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic sequence Oct 30 to Nov 8 (in RED below)! She makes double sure significant changes are made. Since their cycle aspects overlap, here is the entire timetable:

Sep
Venus, Libra’s planet, starts her Retrograde cycle in Libra!
3  Mercury sextile Venus
9  Venus Scorpio
9  Virgo New Moon

Oct
Venus Retrograde
8  Libra New Moon

Grand Fixed Square, Venus Retrograde, 4 Planet Scorpio Stellium! 

Moon Seekers Frost Alexis Woman Crystal Ball Owl

Beautiful art called Moon Seekers by Frost Alexis!

This is the last Lunar event before Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! That day starts TEN days of events including the Scorpio NEW Moon! Since Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, it just seems right for the conjunction to occur in Scorpio. This Full Moon, the Ecliptic event, and the New Moon are all during Venus Retrograde! Scorpio and Pluto turn the deepest soils of our Psyche, whether they are cleaning up or stirring our fertility, preparing new ground for raising the seedlings of times to come! Venus is in Scorpio for the Full Moon and Pluto/Ecliptic, then in Libra for the New Moon. She wants us to shift our positions. She wants to establish cleaner relationships with people and money, how we heal each other and to wield our finances with higher purpose always in mind. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde!

Pluto, the Kundalini planet, the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes, at the Ecliptic, experiences the greatest infusion of Light possible! He is at the exact point of crossing the Sun’s Path! He stands in the fire, letting the Light burn away what has slowed things down, the no longer needed, the outgrown, mistakes, clingy obsessive behaviors. He will hardly know himself, so much ‘lighter’ now! He who was hiding can only powerfully glow and show himself now, his true heart, who he has always been. See more because it’s also important to see about the 2019 Transit of Mercury at that link!

Moon Taurus & Sun Scorpio are opposite. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. Moon is in favor of keeping it for the family, investing in commodities. Sun fires up the coals of Scorpio and claims his territory with a kiss you can’t resist! Moon in Taurus has an intrinsic sense of what will hold lasting value, the foundation of your portfolio. Scorpio has behind the scene connections, knows just when to make the grab.

Taurus may be quite happy sitting in flowers at the side of the road – like the Buddha. Scorpio is on the motorcycle speeding by, but slams on the brakes to find out why you are there. He has an extra helmet and takes Moon to lunch at the organic cafe in town. He enjoys her peacefulness, patience and kindness, how she takes the time to really listen to him. Deep sigh. She is emboldened by his rapt attention when she shares. He may have a deep recognition of the small flame of her passion, and she comes to realize how important what she said is. He already knows, and endorses her leap into a bigger world!

Sweet Venus, Taurus’s planet, is Retrograde, ahead of Sun, coming back toward him as he moves forward! They meet each other, Venus with Love and Grace, Sun with his Heart of Love. Venus ruling Taurus is the planet of the sign opposite Scorpio, yet Venus is now IN Scorpio! So, much of the Moon opposition Sun applies here too! Venus’s job while Retrograde is to review and revise Scorpio matters such as deep relationships with oneself and others, financial proceedings, sources of health issues, healing protocols. Spiritually it is obsessions, fears, purification, to suspend time and space, let go of mean and vengeful behaviors, to share with the depth as if you were the other person, to understand the ultimate abandonment – the death of a loved one!

Sun is also taking some long term steps favored by a hard working sextile with Saturn, the old Master. When Scorpio is with you, they will do everything in their power, and that’s no small thing, to help you build your spiritual framework. Saturn/Capricorn is Dharma, the work of the Soul, and it needs a place to live and do business efficiently!

Uranus is also retrograde, but behind Moon, each separating from the other. Intuitive Moon just crossed the cutting edge wildcard inventor and freedom seeker Uranus, an electrifying experience! Taurus is sensible and already making changes, anchoring those genius ideas! She is protecting them, feeding them until they can stand on their own! Moon knows about cycles and this could be a rare opportunity. Uranus has been changing signs from Aries, now in preview mode in Taurus. Taurus has an instinct for what’s his and makes steady progress securing what’s within reach, in this case a taste of the future! Moon is 100% in favor and will make some canny trades that enhance your assets.

4 Planet Scorpio stellium! In addition to this lucky Uranus/Moon connection, besides Sun and Venus in Scorpio, Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct in Scorpio as well! They are consulting and won’t fail! They play the undercurrents well. Mercury accumulates a valuable bag full of information just waiting to be put to use. Jupiter’s big blue eyes have a knack for perspective. They see the possible outcomes of several venues, how they in turn fit together and make the picture whole! Jupiter is just plain lucky! He and Mercury are conjuring all sorts of multi- faceted opportunities, and funding is easily negotiated! They both were recently sextile Pluto in Capricorn, a master business combination. Great business, partnership, travel and location choices are made in no time! The right school is Ace!

Early Degrees SIX Planet GRAND FIXED Square!

Moon’s nodes are spanning Aquarius/Leo making a Grand Fixed Square with Moon/Uranus and Sun/Venus!

They are in early degrees, 0 to 4, so it’s too early to tell the outcomes. It’s exploratory and creative now, which somewhat contradicts the whole idea of ‘fixed’ signs that are meant to stabilize things. But, what’s good may be grabbed and anchored for useful future use! The Moon/Uranus combo we talked about just above may need to be more instinctual than stats. It will depend on Taurus’s sense of magnetism and the Moon’s amazing sense of cycles, past to future! They will likely defy the odds and win!

The Aquarian South Node loves defying the odds! Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose – c’est la vie! But, Taurus and Scorpio have no such feelings! In this case, an experimental Aquarian choice can bust you for the rest of your life if you lose your estate. Balancing with the North Node in Leo is the more amenable solution in this combination. Leo likes to spend money, so preserving the income making parts of the business favor Leo’s choice, LOL! Aquarius was free and the animal part of us doesn’t forget how important that is. Leo wants to create, use color and Light, perform as a teacher or at the theatre. Aquarius wants humanity networked; the center stage promoter of the cause, with huge presence, is LEO! Leo can make money and get funding for them all! Work it together!

The rest of the planets….

Mars is holding a light footed position in Aquarius. He is semisextile Pluto, can be helpful at an instant’s notice. While others are not expecting big moves from Pluto in conservative Capricorn, at this time Mars may be his secret weapon or security guard! Once triggered, Mars in AQ is lightning quick with surprise tactics. Off to the sides he may already be preparing the way. Keep watch, don’t let yourself be flanked! On the other hand, as others are working hard, you may be off enjoying watching the dust fly on the ski slopes! While you are there, you may connect with other leading environmentalists, exchange vital information.

Chiron is at 28 Pisces, left behind by all the early degree planets. He may be enjoying some rest, pondering what needs healing, how to do it and when. He has some intuitive teaching techniques and ideas in mind. In time it will settle and be a foundation for many years to come.

Neptune rocks on, on his own, in his own sign Pisces. Neptune too is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time.

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

May your hunt bring you what you have always been preciously seeking ~

New Moon!

Wednesday November 7 at 8:02 AM Pacific, 15 Scorpio 11

Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Still RX/Grand Square, Jupiter Scorpio/Sagittarius!

Scorpio Dark New Moon Earthshine

Transformation right before your eyes! The dark face of the Moon has a faint shine, a ghostly version of a full Moon called earthshine. It tends to be brightest between April and June. NASA Earth Observatory

EVENT #1! This New Moon will be the first Lunar event following Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic (the Sun’s Path), a 248 year event! This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter leaves Scorpio to enter its own sign Sagittarius! It is one of a 10 day strand of aspects following Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic. The 10 day series of events ends with this Jupiter sign change! It will be 12 years before Jupiter will be in Scorpio again.

Here is the full timeline with a brief description:

  • Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node 18 Capricorn 58 – a 248 year event! The power is light! See more!!!
  • Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
  • Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs at 28 Scorpio/Pisces 31. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet! This is the LAST aspect made to Chiron before he goes back into Aries Feb 18, 2019, not to return to Pisces for another 51 years! This aspect offers last healings before Uranus leaves Taurus, back to review Aries ideas and propositions. He won’t return to Aries for another 84 years! You see the magnitude of our choices at this time. Be strong. Meet those opportunities with new strength.
  • Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas and techniques.
  • Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Scorpio is Pluto’s sign! We look into the Underworld, at our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus is at the LAST degree of Scorpio! It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
  • Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose! Blessings on your Journey!!!

Pluto brings Light to where the deepest healing being needed can be seen. Jupiter trine Chiron heals the healer so Pluto’s work can be done with maximum success! Uranus back in Aries calls us to any unfinished challenges, to make new beginnings on the spot! The Scorpio New Moon calls us to heal and release our deepest powers in a good way and invite selected others to fund and help. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus tickles our wildest planet into checking out further options to apply its genius to. Jupiter in Sagittarius doesn’t see it as too far to go, in fact, can’t wait! We’re on!

The framing of this year’s Scorpio New Moon in this sequence is profound! The New Moon, in Pluto’s sign, is a recipient of each part of the sequence as well as being an essential part of it, giving a purity of cleansing and healing energy that will facilitate it’s entire progress. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. This time it has special intention that will be carried along with all the long term aspects associated with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! See more!

EVENT #2!  Jupiter Scorpio/Sagittarius The New Moon Jupiter is at 29 Scorpio, 29 being the last degree of any sign, it’s the end! Scorpio loves endings that herald the Phoenix rising from its own ashes! Dramatic? Yes. Real? Yes! Knowing the Grace of endings and new life that springs from it is a life skill. Everyone has Scorpio in their chart! Healing and Rebirth are revered. Previous experiences are the fertilizer, sometimes stinky, but always fruitful! In this 29 degree position, Jupiter inconjuncts Uranus, the planet of r/evolution, change, freedom, humanity! It spans from friendship to world consortiums, networks both from spiritual to the internet.

At maturity, Jupiter is dancing, celebrating with the electric planet! It’s the last jolt before the leap into his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8, the very next day! Jupiter the journalist gathered an impressive store of information of all kinds while browsing the underworlds of Scorpio. Sagittarius, the sign of perspective, will be sorting the array, finding a greater collaborative meaning than each piece standing alone. A bold broad Pathway will emerge. Jupiter’s faith will be boundless in his excitement! Lady Luck will be with him! Mercury is already ahead of him at 8 Sag, scanning, thinking, engaging with new people from many places. Jupiter’s transition into Sagittarius will be seamless!

Venus retrograde in her own sign Libra is most assuredly spicing the mix! She is opposite Uranus, encountering one of the most exotic beings she has ever met! Good thing she has that Libra aplomb! But she is ever the gracious ambassador, always brings the best of an encounter back with her. Uranus is the planet of freedom, on the cutting edge. She is either surprised that such an intelligent person is such a loner, or envious of his worldwide network! She can help him appear more mainstream and get an audience that will appreciate him.

They are in turn linked with Mars in Aquarius! Aquarius is Uranus’s sign, and Uranus is in Aries, Mars’ sign – called a Mutual Reception! Mars loves what’s new and fresh! Uranus is one of the few that will hold his attention for very long. Uranus is delighted how quickly Mars gets the idea, and impressed by his immediate action in its behalf!

Venus, don’t forget Venus, is trine Mars! Trines are good, the best! So happy together! Venus is still retrograde. Mars has moved forward in Aquarius and this New Moon they are trine rather than square! She’s too nice, and so is he! Mars in Aquarius is funny quirky and crazy! He loves this freedom and having a ball! Venus doesn’t mind if he flirts outrageously, or if immersed in his research, he doesn’t know you exist. He forgets to come to the party or your date, but somehow, you forgive him anyway. Plan on checking in and collecting him, SOP. Mars can inspire your socks off! Venus may find herself helping him look presentable and help him present his amazing project to clients who will see the value she sees in it. She could do some much needed fundraising for him. Go back to clients that were likely candidates before – they may have changed their minds, found an opening and be ready now!

Late degrees Grand Cardinal Square! That Venus opposite Uranus axis is square the Cancer/Capricorn North/South Moon’s Nodes. No one is standing still. Venus adores making new community connections. Uranus is wanting to engage the world. Capricorn builds homes and does business; Cancer takes care of the kids, the family, and her mate. She makes sure the kids go to a great school. They tend to be more conservative. Definitely some surprises in store! People of all kinds and places pop in! Venus smooths the way best she can, won’t win them all. Uranus speeds on but leaves his mark as their eyes open wide in shock or awe. But still, there’s no place like home. In those tired moments, some food and a safe place to sleep mean a lot. Those ones that keep the home fires burning, can support the ones that explore further possibilities and take chances in their behalf. Everyone has special skills and they can dovetail neatly.

Healer, teacher Chiron, at 28 Pisces, ties strongly with the Square. He closely semisextiles Uranus offering subtle ideas based on the needs of the people, healing Uranus without Uranus really realizing it. Chiron trines the North Node, sextiles the South. Pisces spiritually understands the need for social foundation, successfully raising children, their meaningful contribution to our future. Chiron offers visions and dreams that stir us through and through.

MOON & SUN

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

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Scorpio as well as it was in Libra, each a sign of relationships. Libra looks for equality, wants connection, is an ambassador, mediator, makes beauty. Scorpio  wants a deep unspoken connection to the inner self, seeks to heal the source cause, bring you to full power. Libra seeks funding for many causes, can be the ‘face’; Scorpio has a way with money, has the funds, is uncanny at estimating who you are. Libra is the front; Scorpio is the power behind the throne.

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16 degree factors in your charts! Last month’s Libra New Moon started a 7 month 15 degree sequence. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15 degree midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each  represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. Scorpio will square Aquarius Feb 4, 2019; Sagittarius will square Pisces. The Jan 5, 2019 master Capricorn Solar Eclipse, however, will be 90 degree midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs of the sequence, during a 5 planets Capricorn stellium! Capricorn is the midpoint sign of the entire sequence! A lot will hinge on his decisions.

The New Moon is sextile Pluto, freshly from his Ecliptic encounter, from the same point as when Jupiter at 15 Scorpio was trine Neptune Aug 19th! At the Libra New Moon, Sun and Moon had just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. This New Moon was just trine Neptune, a trine being the most favorable connection! They are even more empathic than before! Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. Neptune is lending his ultra-sensitivity and psychic insight and vision that even Scorpio is impressed by. Scorpio knows what’s up with people, their motives and secret wishes; Neptune knows why and how that is connected to their Soul. Neptune has freshly transferred some of this to Sun and Moon so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Since Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, the New Moon senses the way for Pluto. Sun energizes, Moon nurtures. Pluto in Capricorn may need some sustaining and comfort after the big encounter with the Ecliptic. The New Moon is right there for him. Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place, the Ecliptic, that Pluto was at. There is an alliance factor. Sun charged Pluto to the core. Pluto is powerful, but Sun is Boss! Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame.

Saturn at 5 Capricorn, in his own sign and the same sign Pluto is in now, is holding space on his own. He is having time to mull over how his services can best be contributed, what needs building next.

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Scorpio’s powerful connections give us what we need to clear our way, heal our hesitations, clean up and be reborn! Birthing is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Libra 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Libras ~ Beauty Be!

Libra 4 Planets Gwyneth Paltrow Beauty Be

Sunset is Libra’s time of day. Mid Fall, Equinox, end of the summer sun, shorter days is Libra’s time of year. Both are endings, success, gatherings of gratitude, sharing. For some it is a time to slow down, sit down to dinner together, do indoor evening chores for a time, rest. Summer zest and plant production slows, steady winter growth of chill loving plants takes their place in the garden. Instead of so much comfortable outdoor play time, many are back at school, back at work, the longer cooler evenings giving more the mood to study, to plan. Herein lies the secret of new beginnings, new vantage points, new skills! Life has the potential of being truly aligned to your Spirit. The rest doesn’t fit. There is a tipping point, considerations of the longer term balance of the seasons, the long term goals of your Being updated every year at this time! Training for deep winter sports commences. The Artist within us witnesses the shifts, different lighting, Mother Earth’s natural progress unfolding.

The three Air signs! Gemini walks the neighborhood. Libra chats them up and partnerships of all kinds are made! Libra makes so many connections, Aquarius can band them together across the world, whether business, internet, or mutual international causes! The intellects of all time are gathered for profit, pleasure, research and rescue! Libra’s contribution is crucial because not all Aquarians, often the most productive ones, are busy perusing the ethers, not interested in people as much as discovery! So it’s up to Libra to cross this gap – culturally, age wise, of faiths, and the races! Libra is exquisitely capable. Lines of inquiry are pursued, consultations are made, surprising mergers spring into being without seeming effort. Remember the Magicians seeking how to turn dross into gold? Libras have always known how to do that. They are old alchemists.

Immortal Beauty is invisible. It’s more a quality than a thing of skill or technique. It has intrinsic value, recognition by all cultures. It crosses the gateways of time, always is thought of as beautiful. Or, it visibly fills our eyes, Spirit, and marks our very Soul. When Libra shows us the mortal side of beauty this way, we remember who we are, our intentions, how we have wandered many lives to get preciously here. We spontaneously slip into a Knowing that needs no words. That sacred experience is often conjured by stories that end in such a way, we know a change happened, a release, an arrival, yet how we got there, where we are, doesn’t matter at all anymore. We are here. Use me, Great Spirit, Angels show me the way. Libra is there as a Guide, supremely aware of nuances, keeping us from falls or slight deviances from our destination. A bouquet of flowers, cleverly placed, perfectly scented (centered), lifts our attention – keeps our focus extended, further and higher.

Beauty is Divine. It is so much more meaningful than we surmise. It’s an unexpected smile that changes our day, even saves our life. It’s the lay of the land, a park in the City whose trees help us breathe and recenter. It’s those sophisticated or rustic clothes that tell the story of who we are and hint at who we are becoming to be, attract the right people as we go along. Beauty is a Verb. It’s how we live our connections with other Souls, each special.

Libra is the special time of Fall Equinox equal day and night. It’s the balance between light and dark. As summer ends, we are aware of our accomplishments and ready to increase our creds with more education. It’s a special balance of standing with our talents, and keeping up with the changes of time. We connect with learned beings who help us stay poised while in motion! Baseball is a Libra sport, a team sport, with super skillful expertise required. Equestrian sports require a relationship with your horse and exceptional in motion balance. Surfing and skiing require an intuitive relationship with ocean and earth, and the balance to stay up while in motion! Gymnastics has its balance beam that you propel yourself across! Yoga is a ton more subtle, but it will challenge your abilities, your relationship with yourself! All these sports will help you in many ways to understand the concepts of relationships and balance. A Libra favorite is dancing, from lines and squares, to rock, to ballroom, to ballet! Grace, beauty and exercise all in one!

Now, for some fun… Sep 27, 1972 Libran Gwyneth Kate Paltrow Martin has 4 planets in Libra – Pluto, Sun, Mercury and Uranus! She is an American actress, businesswoman, socialite, lifestyle guru, singer, and food writer. She is razzed about her quotes, so I thought I would throw in one some of you astrologers will appreciate, LOL! At 29, the year after her Saturn (sometimes pessimistic, not funny) Return, she said to NY Rock, November 2001:

“Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don’t have that many good years left in me.” She’s now 45; they can laugh all they want at her quotes, but depending on where you look, her net worth is 60M, 72M or estimated to be 140M! Whatever….it’s a healthy chunk of change.

Keep the Faith, and keep practicing your Balance, Friends!

Libra 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Libra Astrology Highlights 2018!

“The giant sunsets are a whole other world on the (Bolivian) salt flats. At sunset, with the reflection, you can see two suns moving fast at each other until vanishing into the horizon.” By photographer Eric Paré

Libra 2018 Timeline!

September
22 Happy Libra, Fall Equinox!
24 Full Harvest Moon
25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back into Pisces

October 
5   Venus, Libra’s Planet, Retrogrades
8   New Moon
8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
23  Happy Scorpio!
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!


Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs
 in Libra’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Sep 25 Chiron retrogrades back into Pisces, Nov 6, Uranus back into Aries. Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron enters Aries permanently, Mar 6, Uranus into Taurus permanently.

Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again! Now in Aries, Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and restored.

Retrogrades! Oct 5 to Dec 6, 2018 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! 

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

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

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more! There is an intense 10 day period with multiple aspects that will take all next year to assimilate! We will need those aspects with Neptune to understand and come to working solutions.
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Libra’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Libra 2018 – October 2019!

Libra Dancing Sunset Birds Flying

Dancing the vaults of heaven! Take more chances; dance more dances! Author unknown…

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

Pluto has been square Libra since 2008, finishing Jan 2024. Relationships may have been emphasized. Pluto may want to clear old content, each person taking responsibility for their part. There have likely been cautions about professional interactions and intercultural endorsements, plus pressure to perform as scheduled. Keep personal security protection up to date, don’t let your insurance lapse. If you have doubt about trust, don’t – be safe. Pluto wants the best for you, but having that happen may not always be comfortable or seem feasible. You could go to court. Though you may be Libra nice and try to help, the long term best choice may be to let go. Pluto may BE the problem, intimidating, or helps you get through with the least pain and expenses. Pluto moves slowly, so these matters could take some time, including health challenges.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors betweenn 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Libra are inconjunct, an awareness aspect. Both are artists and love music! Both are sensitive to the nuances of everything around them! Neptune sleeps and dreams, sometimes has addictions and illogical misty visions or totally accurate psychic perception! Libra prefers logic and being clean and sober, but is known to ‘read’ people really well by putting themselves in the other person’s place! Pisces has compassion; Libra has equality. There but for the Grace of God, go I. Libra learns there is more than a butterfly count of connections. Connections have to mean something, have a purpose. Pisces may prefer quiet alone time while Libra’s cure is being social, getting out and about. If that musician or artist needs to make more sales, the Libra agent or gallery owner is perfect for them! Libra’s are great at making contacts, beautiful displays, and subsequent sales!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in the last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future ideas that Taurus will anchor and 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, so they can effortlessly be carried on.

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

Aries is opposite Libra. Libra definitely likes new! The more the merrier! Changes in greetings, mediation skills, upleveling partnering, new sales territory! Libra steps up quickly and follows Aries’ lead. While they are at it, Libra slips in some social phases and ideas for Aries so he will have even greater success! She may be swept off her feet, but she knows whether an idea is going to make it as is or needs adjusting. Together they can make quick changes that work well. Libra may need more rest, so Aries should expect some time outs to go off and do his own thing. He might just make a quick stop with you and is off to meet others. You could be left on your own, especially if he thinks you’ve got it and can carry on without him!

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

Taurus is an Earth sign; Libra is Air. Uranus in Taurus may steadily nibble away around the edges, gradually changing the landscape. It is at once exciting and non threatening. It perseveres. Libra appreciates this more genteel approach though could also wish for the fast pace of courthouse investigations, art appraisals, the broad approach of intercultural studies and international connections, the rush of political frays, fighting for the rights of the people! Uranus in Taurus as the watcher may offer surprising insights about natural shifts, how networks of people can be called together. Works for her! Libra loves gathering the troops for a fair fight!

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

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Libra seeks a balance – not too much of that spiritual stuff, good social time, reasonable money to have some finer things in life, beauty, a little travel, plenty of fresh air! Chiron can offer his intuitive views that shift directions just enough to pull it off! Libra dances well, so quickly and admirably makes award winning changes!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Libra is fascinated by the pace and the sweeping array of possible new connections with teachers and leaders from all over the world! Aries won’t stay long, but it was so worth the encounter! Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Libra is delighted, reordering the sequences, putting people in their new perfect placements!

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

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

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can put the brakes on Air sign Libra, or challenge Libra to stand up and tell it like it is! No more being taken advantage of for being so nice. Saturn censors or gives excellent advice on whom to do business with, how to choose a long lasting personal partnership. Libra may want to be liked, but Saturn wants you to choose because it is a good choice. Saturn is an expert at timing. If he senses this is not the time, wait. Saturn can be pretty serious, so a steady diet of demand for achievement may not be Libra’s cup of tea. Libra needs time to meet people and just breathe with associates after work. Weekend museum trips are great. Saturn needs to know all creatures can not be or want to be just like him. He can use a social emissary for when he’s got a case of the busies, and brilliant Libra knows just how to front for him while he takes time out!

JUPITER moves from 20 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Libra is the sign preceding Scorpio. Libra makes the contacts, negotiates the deals. Jupiter in Scorpio peruses the charts, trends, actual accounts to see just how far they can go. On a journey, he would be Libra’s protector while they explore uncharted locations having unpredictable inhabitants. Yet when it comes to talking, Libra is the one! Jupiter has opinions and Scorpio may not want to reveal all. Could be a bit dicey at times. Jupiter wants Libra’s good cheer, so will try to assess Libra’s ability. If a love of danger and a little fierceness is present, they go there! If not, Jupiter will guide a more gentle expedition. He will encourage Libra to bring any meds, drink safe water, eat safe foods, find comfortable lodging for her. Libra is more refined than Jupiter, or Scorpio, yet sometimes she needs to let her hair down and just relax. It’s a relief just to be yourself as is. Other times Jupiter & Scorpio need to watch their mouths, be a little more thoughtful and respectful. We don’t always realize the effect we have.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter either comes streaking through Libra’s life like a comet, is the owner of the bed and breakfast, or the university prof! Generally they get along, and Libra loves anthropology! She may be inspired to take some journeys on her own! She might be well read, especially on current events, but Jupiter certainly has more ideas about styles of living, the meaning of life, and from his broad experience, you never know what he will say next! Libra’s curiosity will take her on many ventures whether she goes anywhere or not! She’s a lovely hostess and could be the love of the tour guides life! They could own an online travel agency, publish travel tips books! Sagittarius is noted for longevity and Libra tries to keep a balanced life. He has a long stride while she may wait for him at the cafe making new acquaintances, catching the local buzz! What a lovely companion and smart too!

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

Full Harvest Moon!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LIBRA & ARIES

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

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

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

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

CARDINAL T Square

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

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

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

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

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

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

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

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

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

The rest of the planets….

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

It’s a pleasure to meet you ~

New Moon!

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

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

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

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