Taurus New Moon!

Saturday May 4 at 3:46 PM Pacific, 14 Taurus 11!

Three in Taurus, three in Aries Bowl, Sextiles, Neptune Midpoint, Stars! 

Taurus 2019 New Moon Milky Way Green AirGlow Isle of Wright Chad Powers

The Milky Way and green airglow are captured over the Isle of Wight in this image taken by Chad Powell on Oct. 4, 2013.   

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. 

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone! In Taurus, we assess our body, our attractiveness, what we want, our basic human rights, our relationship with our planet, ownership of our actions to get the job done. 

Bowl chart with three in Taurus, three in Aries! 

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini, but now it is opposite Jupiter, firing up Jupiter’s synapses with startling and exciting new information. Those old opinions are being challenged and updated! Jupiter may feel a bit taunted, but loves learning, and usually gives in to the bigger truth of things. Our last New Moon the emphasis was Pisces/Aries. This one has three planets in Aries and three in Taurus! The beginnings have been made and Taurus intends to anchor, stabilize production, refine the process. Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Keep them right where you can touch them, close to your heart. Spread the good word.

Sextiles of Opportunity in mixed companionable elements! See all those green lines?!

In fire and air, Venus to Mars! Love at first sight! They are chatting while they dance, the moves are quick and graceful. Champions! They both may try to lead, LOL! Venus gives her blessings in an instant. She is leading the frame, choosing in a moment. Though she gave you the eye, don’t mistake that she is independent, creative and resourceful. She makes beauty wherever she goes; it’s like having a magic wand! Mars can match her steps and that is rare, so delightful that he can keep up, even surpass her! He has words; he hums while he moves. His rhythm is impeccable; his breath is with the wind. Venus is the budding flower in brilliant white or red, a rose of pink. In the world of the day, they have fond connections, connections with artists and movers, world leaders of all kinds. They share all the stories, perform with spiritual zest! They scintillate! There is a sweet scent as they pass by. New beginnings are blessed.

Mars does have a serious component in his periphery. Perhaps that makes him more formidable than one thinks at first glance. He is linked with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. That makes Gemini look pale, but he presents Gemini first. If he finds out there is deception, a web of imprisonment, an unhonorable chronic history, he will move on. He notes the susceptibility of curiosity, but he knows if he gets caught he might not get away in time. Careful. He learns to be a bit more cautious and be careful where he flirts. Due to a wrinkle in energy, he may almost inadvertently become aware of a wise being who may tell him of certain requirements he must experience to temper his Soul. It’s a test not everyone opts to take or passes even if they do. Do your best.

In Earth and Water, Neptune at the sextile midpoint between Saturn and the New Moon!
  • Saturn sextile Neptune is special, part of the big planetary combination that started with Pluto at the Ecliptic, 18° Capricorn, Oct 20, 2018! Jupiter and Saturn both will make exact aspects with Neptune June 16 and 18 at 18° Pisces. 18 Pisces sextiles that 18 Capricorn! Jupiter updates Neptune’s dreams of the millennium, teaches new methods of advocacy. A bigger Truth now prevails. Evolution’s work is ever in the making. Saturn builds an easy to follow, well defined Pathway of substance, makes sure the gears are running smoothly. Saturn pays attention to the structural integrity of the dream’s current condition and strengthens as needed. There may be some delays, but the delays will make for long term substantial gain.

  • Moon and Sun are potently trining Saturn as well as also making the sextile to Neptune! Moon and Saturn know each other well. Each is preserving elemental integrity, building a strong home base, taking care of elders, the kids and generations to come. Both are relatively conservative, as they should be considering their jobs, but they always help when they can. Sun and Saturn get along well. Sun praises, gives energy, and lights the way when Saturn faces his toughest challenges. Saturn has his doubtful moments, but rarely abandons his Soul’s commitments. 

    You might think by closeness this would also lead to Pluto since Saturn is so close to Pluto, but not so much. Sextiles are not given so much leeway by most astrologers as that long 11° between Moon/Sun and Pluto, and Saturn is retrograding away from Pluto faster than Pluto is retrograde. Yes, their conjunction is in the offing, they have been within sniffing distance, taking measure of what’s to come, giving fair warning of the necessities that will follow. It will be Saturn’s job to bring the dangerous Pluto extremist into a more workable current collaboration in a timely fashion. Yet sometimes it takes holding the extreme condition to get people to see exactly what the time frame is, like with climate conditions. The old guard money machines aren’t going to hold all that melting water. Time to find new ways to capitalize for the futures of our children. Private parties and businesses are stepping in, taking care of reality. And they are the ones who have funded government in the past. Now they are doing the business of the planet. That’s bigger.

    Moon and Neptune are both so intuitive. Mama Moon sees Neptune’s deepest wishes. She sees the cycles they are flowing in, variations that are coming. Neptune sees not just Moon’s own family, but the family of humanity. He sees her cycles within the grand cycles. He tunes her up and she believes what he shows her. She knows her daily work is symbolic of the macrocosm. She cleans, hugs the hurts, feeds, supports and sometimes leads as a woman of substance in behalf of her people. Keeping her people strong is essential. She helps people feel their way along, understand each other’s differences. As she changes, so will they. 

    Sun heartens Neptune to stand up rightfully in his unique insights. Take that song with those lyrics to center stage. Music has always been a way of speaking. As we listen, dance to it, we take it in. We become it without realizing. There is a complicit agreement, resonance. We can be profoundly influenced. As we might be doing yoga at the beach, or sitting in meditation with other Souls of great intention. The Sun makes us aware of our own radiance and the seed of the dream we have held within starts to grow…
Three Semi-Sextiles!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Taurus’ coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, 2020!  See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius is semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn! Jupiter is UP and Pluto and Capricorn are considered to be down dirty and sensible, realistic! If you take it all too seriously, get burdened with obsessive commitments you can’t humanly keep, get tired beyond measure, then runaway with Jupiter! Jupiter does have big plans, but there are often detours, trips, fun, funny! It’s not what you do but how you do it! Plenty of time outs, diversions so you don’t lose it, being silly and ridiculous just for the heck of it, stretching your muscles and spirit! Go Surfing in New Zealand, get in an outdoor run, some yoga, sign up for the samba class you always wanted, get some private tutoring! Make noise, yodel! See what I mean, Jellybean?! Now. If Jupiter is just not getting things done, on time or ever, it might be time to be reminded of the consequences of going too far that direction! Divvy up the task into small bites; start with something just to get a start. If possible, never sign up for something you didn’t want to do in the first place. But if it is a chance as a step to something more better, give yourself a time limit and give it a go! Either way, Jupiter or Pluto, take good care of yourself. 

For this New Moon, Venus is leading old Neptune on! She has whispered with him before when they are in Pisces together, but now she is calling to him to catch up! She’s pretty, perky, agile, dodges bullets, starts fires, is spirited in the most attractive way! He can’t help but long to put some of his visions in her hands and wish to be close with her again. She’s pushing for change, now, and he may be embarrassed once in a while at her shenanigans, but even if she makes a mistake, she has record recovery time! Progress! She still comes by to listen to him, seek his guidance and inspire her with new ideas. He may not look to exciting, but don’t underestimate his tempests! Formidable if he is displeased. Be ready to roll!

Venus is also at a T Square midpoint to Saturn and the Moon’s Nodes! They are in Cardinal signs: Saturn in practical earthy Capricorn, Venus in fire breathing Aries, the Nodes spanning Cancer/Capricorn – Saturn at the South Node. There is a Fateful component. Saturn, Capricorn and the South Node, are related to our past. The family reputation, karmic consequences good or bad, old age, archaeology, meaningful past lives. Cardinal signs are always getting things rolling. Cancer takes care of the home and family, Capricorn builds both shelter, and community connections, and knows what’s done is done, let go, rebuild. Aries is the first responder, leader of merit, gets the troops inspired with new ideas! This leader could be a woman, perhaps may lack credibility, but she certainly gives it a go. She may prove to be right or with excellent input, makes quick adjustments and it comes out better than anyone expected! Her auspicious sextile with Aries planet Mars in Gemini assures everyone will hear about the project, sending her information she needs minute by minute, further leading her to make thrilling daring moves! What a dance! 

There was another T Square, Jupiter and Mars to Neptune, but it has fizzled since Jupiter and Mars have gone beyond Neptune’s degree now. Yet, Neptune remains felt as the midpoint of the entire chart! What has potency now, however, is Mars opposite Jupiter! Fireworks! Mars is a fire sign, Jupiter a fire planet in his own sign, fiery Sagittarius! Mars in airy Gemini might spread himself a little thin, living on air instead of food, but he’s having a great time of it as Jupiter feeds him data from all other the world. Pushy Mars may want to act before Jupiter thinks things are ready. They may go head to head, differences of opinion, Mars willing to take on the giants, Jupiter outspoken and not known for tact all the time. But fire and air are quick and smart, get through it just about as fast as it started! Mars likes being independent, and might be frustrated when Jupiter takes off one of the few times Mars needs support. Jupiter may find Mars isn’t as impressed with his grand ideas as his students are. For Mars he’s used to taking on big ideas because he has plenty of his own. Jupiter may underestimate Mars. But Mars is 10 times faster than anyone else, so Jupiter sees such amazing progress he’s challenged to keep up with Mars! All’s forgiven.

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This earthy 14° Taurus New Moon makes a blessed sextile with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Taurus and Cancer make sure everyone is comfy and fed well. Taurus steadies Cancer. Cancer listens and doesn’t rush Taurus. She knows when to get back to her business and let him think some more.

Moon and Sun are trine Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn.  Moon is born to music and Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. They make ballads and lullabies. Taurus has a lovely voice that soothes humans and animals alike. Taurus love being hands on, makes stunning ceramics, sculptings. They sculpt their own bodies with weight training or weight loss programs. This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.  

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! Venus in Aries has just sextiled Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for her. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and Venus, Robson says: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female. About Mars (Aries), he says ‘Unruly, ingenious occupied with mechanical matters, great military preferment. Any old time, Venus in Aries can throw a temper tantrum, sweetly, mind you, and get away with it! With Rigel she just might have a little more teeth. You might call her on it or decide to wait a bit…

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

At this New Moon Venus tickles the web from 17 Aries! She is square the Pluto/Ecliptic point, semi-sextile the mid-June Neptune point, and inconjunct the Transit of Mercury! She is requesting an updating of intention, no time to lose. Yes, it will be more work, inconvenient, but it almost seems like they have been waiting for this missing piece. She shows Neptune a new shiny speed boat and he’s delighted! Sitting side by side, they imagine going on a merry ride beyond her wildest ideas! He doesn’t want to let her down, so she brings out his best! Venus quickens the Scorpio brew where the Transit of Mercury will occur. Aries and Scorpios are warriors from way back. Aries fire warms the temps, gets any sludge at the bottom moving and be released. Aries primes the pump.

Pluto is now at 23 Capricorn, just a degree from where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter sits at 23 Sagittarius now, one sign before, readying our plans and preparations. Jupiter keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Any learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Steady as she goes. We have a lot to do.

Wesak Seasonal Blue Flower Full Moon! 

Saturday May 18 at 2:11 PM Pacific, 27 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Buddha’s Birthday! Taurus Stellium, Pairs, Jupiter/Saturn-Neptune! 

Taurus Scorpio 2019 Wesak Buddha Seasonal Blue Full Flower Moon

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. In Pacific time, the United Nations will celebrate it Saturday May 18 in 2019. 

The Full BLUE Moon, is the only 2019 Seasonal Blue Moon. Since this is the third of four full moons in this season, it is known as a blue moon. This calendar event only happens once every few years, giving rise to the term, “once in a blue moon.” There are normally only three full moons in each season of the year. But since full moons occur every 29.53 days, occasionally a season will contain 4 full moons. The extra full moon of the season is known as a blue moon. Blue moons occur on average once every 2.7 years.

Three outer planets are potently in their own signs! Purity prevails. Jupiter is frolicking in Sagittarius. Saturn is steadfast in Capricorn. Neptune is apperceptive in Pisces. Venus is in one of her own signs, our sign Taurus! She breathes Nature’s beauty, is aware of natural cycles. 

Stellium! May 15 to 21 we have four planets in Taurus, Uranus, Venus in one of her own signs, Mercury and Sun – four ways to interact, four tools to apply! Uranus will bring unusual bonds of friendship, some due to weather, food needs, animal protection, sustainable shelter. Elemental. Venus will go before him showing why these matters are worth it with data and images showing valuable alternative new living systems. Wise. Mercury is out there steadily spreading the word, developing sensible answers, updating info as he goes, finding collaborators. It’s challenging and rewarding. Sun is throwing Light energy, encouraging us to stand up, each in our own special way, from our own heart. Love.  

Full Moon of Scorpio during Taurus! While Moon is checking on hidden resources, Sun is steady in Taurus, observing her progress, holding the fort. Moon may need to make a quick retreat, or the prize is too much to get away with on her own and she may need some security forces to be dispatched ASAP! She may be caught in a formidable seduction, a lot of money involved, and Sun may need to shed some Light on the affair to reveal the entirety of it all! She could be stolen away, or they could become wealthy by combining forces. Sun in Taurus protects what’s his/ours. Moon can be conservative because she is always somewhat vulnerable as mother/child. Might be the best thing that ever happened, or she may know exactly why she never ever did and will not do!

Three Planetary Pairs, two of those in Taurus! That means conjunctions of dual powers! Potency and focus!

  1. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have been 3° or less of each other since April 6. April 29 Saturn retrograded, still close, gaining momentum in reverse, out of the 3° range May 28. Saturn has made the approach, but they don’t connect exactly until Jan 12, 2020! The preview has made Saturn aware of what needs to be done and is giving 8 months to be prepared, get it done! It can be personal matters, teeth, skin, bones. It can be business, real estate, elders, parenting. It can be world matters, laws, borders, tariffs, protection of civil liberties. The process can be from destruction of what no longer works, reusing what does – remodeling, building from the ground up. It can be infamy, shame, or honored achievement. Your chart will be particularly called on if you have factors from 17 to 23 degrees. Capricorn rules the high mountains, hard rock solidarity, survival in sometimes harsh conditions. Band together and stay safe.

  2. Venus has just crossed Uranus in Taurus. She makes what’s unique about Uranus into something outstandingly valuable! Taurus is the most fertile land, and if you are growing food, climate and weather conditions have your complete attention. Venus is beauty, loving kindness, and Uranus is friends and everything electronic – the internet, your phone. It’s a blessed time to make connections and gather your tribe. Uranus is the planet of Evolution. Together we get those bigger ventures done! Sponsor special health research, invest in future sources of energy in behalf of climate change because the standard package is no longer serving. Help people make their changes enjoyably, help them to overcome shock, fear. Venus can help Uranus set people free and get stabilized in their new way of life! Let go of sugars, carbs, alcohol. Maybe do a Keto diet?!

  3. Mercury is talking with Sun In Taurus. They are savoring their favorite words, comparing thoughts of value, common determinations. Mercury has news and Sun is contemplating its potential, what their part in it might be. They are deciding the best ways to fertilize the fields of opportunity becoming available, how to anchor their progress for sustainable future gains. They go slowly and carefully, their considerations are provocative.  

Mercury and Sun have favorably trined the Saturn/Pluto conjunction, Mercury most recently, keeping the information flowing. Mercury is transmitting to Sun Taurus to Taurus, but their exact connection, May 21 at 6:07 AM, is after they both change signs into Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! At that point, the nature of the message changes. It retains the original content, but the added question becomes how to get the word out to the maximum number of people that it may continue to be transmitted! Moon caught the gist of the message, is a fast mover, in this case the front person! She carries the message on in a rather Scorpio underground manner, telling it to people who will carry it potently to key places, paving the way for it to be well funded and implemented successfully later.  

Mercury also inconjuncted Jupiter in Sagittarius. Mercury is of Gemini and Virgo, knowledge and putting it to work. Jupiter of Sagittarius is opposite Gemini, square Virgo. He takes the data Gemini gathers, Virgo categorizes, and puts it collectively into perspective, gives it meaning and long term purpose. So what Mercury passes to Sun is ready to go. The Plan is in progress. 

Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde on their way back to square and sextile Neptune June 16 & 18. These aspects are especially important because they happen while Neptune is at 18 Pisces, sextile the Pluto/Ecliptic point of Oct 30 2018 at 18 Capricorn! The whole sequence started Oct 30, 2018 with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Jupiter/Saturn pair are preparing us for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! All of these will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Jupiter will be seeking greater meaning now that we have had some months of experience. Jupiter and Neptune have to do with Faith and Spirituality. Faith often has a name, a congregation. Spirituality is more your personal relationship with your beliefs, being a Savior of Humanity. It might be sitting in meditation, doing good works for suffering Souls, no name needed. Many are thinking of the huge donations being given to restore Notre Dame while cities don’t have drinking water, animals are going extinct, children are suffering. One woman wrote ‘What would Jesus do?’ Jupiter’s Truth is challenging Neptune’s blind side.

Saturn’s job is to take the best most workable ideas of the Jupiter square Neptune and parlay them into use. These three will aspect each other, two more exact times June 16/18 and Sep 21/Nov 8. Saturn is practical and offers Neptune a reasonable rebuild. Saturn cuts the time, builds strong and doesn’t waste time. Old things, stones and glass are his medium. He may take a more middle of the road stance due to public opinion. The ones donating may come to question why they haven’t given before to matters of living beings. We have these magnificent heritage buildings and we have animals going extinct on the same day. One is reparable, the other is not. Please give the majority of your energy to the long term.

Moon’s Nodes recently spanned across Saturn, the South Node at Saturn! They have to do with the Past. We have been considering how things used to be, how they have been, what’s to come and what to do. Saturn wants to rebuild, make a difference, have rules that are doable. The North Node, the direction we are heading, wants food to be better quality, to eat the right kinds and amounts. Saturn can help regulate and build a better system. In addition, the Nodes are favorable, in the same degree with Neptune! Neptune is addictions of any kind, and food doesn’t cost much, is right there in your fridge. A favorable aspect can make us think we can get away with it, or Neptune can help us imagine consequences and make us realize the need to take care of ourselves better. If we aren’t talking about addictions, we can see how women, families are so important in our world today when there is so much change at hand. We all need the nurturing. We are inspired to make a safe and better world for our loved ones. We need to treat ourselves better that we may be able to help them well. Young heroines like 15 year old activist Greta Thunberg speaks truth to power at the UN COP24 climate talks. She speaks of her needs as a planetary citizen who lives on after us…

The early degree planets are getting us started! Mars just entered Cancer on the 15th, is quite fearless as usual, is activating Uranus. Mars may be slightly intimidated by his own Mother, but no one else and not for long! God knows Mothers have special powers. GrandMothers too. But if Mars takes on the Mother role, have mercy on us all! Mars will do what he wants to do in the name of taking care of you. He knows he knows what’s best for you and it’s important to do it now! If he gets rebellious to his Mother, be sure to have your best strategies at hand, LOL, you’re gonna need ’em! Uranus adds a further touch of rebellion, wanting freedom and change! Those old fashioned Cancerian ways are about to be turned over! But, if home, family, women and children need defending and liberating, you have a champion! At the very least you are going to find new ways to have food and shelter, live a better life. No dawdling!

Mars is slower, so Venus made the sextile the 14th, in different signs.

Mars is about to square Chiron May 23. There is some compatibility since Chiron is in Aries, the Mars sign. Cancer and Aries are what we call Cardinal signs, starters, so if healing and a better life is offered, they can get a lot done together. There will probably need to be an acceptance that each has a different way of doing things. Aries is gonna be quick. Cancer might want to wait and doesn’t give up the old ways so easily. But somebody has to break through. Even if a few mistakes are made, hopefully they are not only reparable, but new discoveries are made through the process that are even better than the original proposal! Go get ’em and good luck!

Hold Beauty true, give Blessings, steady onward with Peace in your Heart.

Full Flower Blue Moon – Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, Jupiter Square Saturn

Saturday May 21 at 2:14 PM Pacific, 1 Gemini/Sagittarius 14

Full Flower Moon Wesak 2016 Mount Shasta

Exquisite image fitting for Buddha’s Birthday by Karrie Ann of Living Shasta Photography

The date for Wesak, Buddha’s Birthday celebration, depends on which Lunar Calendar you use.

Mercury is Retrograde

May 20 Happy Gemini! This is the Wesak date for most of SE Asia.
May 21 Wesak in INDIA is on the Full Moon 2:14 PM Pacific, 1 Sagittarius 14.

May 22 Mercury turns Direct at 6:20 AM Pacific

Since it falls on a weekend this year, many, including the Mount Shasta group, will hold weekend meditations, have special teachers, ceremony and celebrations. Wherever you are going, get your reservations made right away.

The Sun Gemini, Moon Sagittarius axis deftly handles information gathered community wide, especially from women, and with a handshake across the table incorporates it with a bigger array, community to community! Brainstorming sessions will pay off. The neighborhood scanner Gemini mind is a font of knowledge and past life traveler; Sagittarius the Seeker, loves its meaning and purpose. They spread the good word to as many as possible as far as they can get! Gemini does great newsworthy blogs while Sagittarius teaches and publishes. Gemini is more neutral, while Sag takes it to Church. Together they cover from here to there!

Moon is meeting retrograde Mars in Sagittarius coming back to greet her. For an hour and a half after the Full Moon, they are going to tell great stories! BIG stories, many chapters! Record them for sparking more conversations later. Or. There is going to be some potent interaction, whether it is high with provocative emotion, truth or lies, anger, sex, exercise, accidental, or all of the above! Just be a little careful, ok? Protected sex, be safe, not isolated. One way or the other, it could be inspiring, even if you don’t like it! Some cleanup may be called for.

Mars is headed to its retrograde opposition Sun the next day, May 22 at 4:17 AM Pacific. Essentially the action is on the 21st since it happens so early the 22nd. This opposition always happens when Mars retrogrades. It is at the midpoint between the Rx turn to the Direct turn. Both Mars and Sun are fire planets and in frolicsome signs, be careful not to rush things, be too quick – unwatchful, overdo the exercise, ignore personal intimate protection. Anger, taking a dare, being macho may not pay off. But you may find yourself standing up now when you should have a long time ago! Yes! Doing something new may free your Spirit! Wild sex in the street may make you feel spicy for a long time! :) But remember the warning, no first time sex with someone during Mars Rx. If your desire changes after Mars goes direct, fine. There could be a different Initiation that honors a longing of your Soul.

6:20 AM Pacific the next day, Mercury in Taurus directs, turns forward, ends its retrograde! That means it has been in station, appearing to stand still, since the 18/19th and will continue to until the 25th, a standard 8 day period. What is focused on during those days is well thought out, becomes a part of us, is long held, especially in Taurus. Fertile Taurus seeks a true value. It is patient and sits with it until the living part of it is acquired. Taurus is our bodies; we need to establish a connection, touch. Mercury, mind and hands, is here to do that. Taurus is beauty of all and any kind, grace. It rules the land and land works, the foods we grow on the land, the trees that filter our air. Taurus is gentle, yet super powerful. They usually don’t yell on soapboxes, but they are often long time entertainers, and most certainly are earth movers. It just gets done. If you put your mind (Mercury) to it, what seems impossible, inch by inch, comes to pass.

This is our third Moon with a Grand Earth Trine – Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto! Again, Mercury is retrograde turns direct the day after our Full Moon! It has gone back as far as it is going to, just missing the trine with Jupiter. Jupiter is retrograding away from the trine with Pluto. So, we think about what we could do, but contracts are not signed. We are enlivened, see the details, how it could be, yet it still isn’t the time yet. We carry the ideas with us, and they help shape our intentions, enhance our chances. If the combinations with your chart are good in late June, the ideas will be there ready to fulfill when that Jupiter Pluto trine is made exactly June 26!

5 Days after our Full Moon, Jupiter in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius May 26!

The important core long term outer planet aspect is the Jupiter square Saturn we have been having continuously since they started being close together within 5 degrees Feb 20. There are only two of these aspects. The first exact one was March 23rd. The last of the two is exact May 26, only 5 days after our Full Flower Moon! It fades away to 3 degrees apart by June 15.

Jupiter went direct, forward May 9, only three hours before the TRANSIT of MERCURY! It is now carrying the Message of Light of the TRANSIT of MERCURY, the solar infusion Eclipse of the Sun!

Jupiter expands limitlessly! Saturn archives important information, condenses and sets boundaries. In Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign, Saturn assigns tasks to get the information out in a timely fashion, keeping the information unbiased, clean and true as possible. Jupiter motivates; Saturn protects his commitment like a mountain fortress. Jupiter in Virgo sorts the bits, realizing some are more important than thought to be when first encountered. Saturn in Sagittarius carefully weighs the new perspective, shrewdly prioritizing.

Personally there may be surprising agreements! In Virgo, Jupiter’s ideas are well backed by the results of practical application and often a bit of research. Saturn is more willing than usual to expand step by step in sensible terms, on a well scheduled program. Things can be fixed, integrated, along the way, assuring a strong foundation. Both are optimistic to an extent. A challenge might be to take on only what you realistically can. Jupiter in Virgo is lucky at assessing health concerns, and Saturn in Sag wants a good life plan for long term well being. Diet, exercise, checking on what you have avoided, insurances and healthy housing go with the territory. There may be breakdowns or breakthroughs. Usually both will call for more funds, so be thrifty now to cover what comes up later. See more!

Two Fixed Stars – Algol and Alcyone! Venus is in one of its signs, Taurus. It just passed Algol May 20 at 26 TA 10. Algol brings dramatic statements. It was thought to be the most evil star in the heavens! If you aren’t dead by decapitation you can be a great artist! It is symbolic of losing your head, and that can be by alcoholism, brainwashing, loss of memory or pain, even by so having so much fun you forget yourself, as well as other means! Of course, modern writers and observers are clear that people born at 26 TA live and that day each year is not noted! Algol blinks and disappears 8 hours at a time because it is a binary star, eclipsing itself every 3 days! Pretty unique, and considered a star of transformation. One writer says, ‘…if you dabble in shamanism it can kill you or enlighten you.’ Johnny Depp and his wife both have Venus with Algol, thought by some to have magnetic beauty!

May 20 the Sun just passed and, only 2+ hours before, the Moon just opposed Alcyone 00 GE 00 in 2000. It is the central star of the Pleiades, also called the Weeping Sisters, in other words, something to weep about. “Sickness, disgrace, evil disposition (used to be a term in astrology for homosexuality), murderer or murdered, imprisonment, death by blows, stabs, shooting, beheading or shipwreck..” “The ruthless visionary, a passionate but potentially arrogant person.” The Pleiades, as the daughters of Atlas, who carried the world, Alcyone points to dealing with burdensome matters of weight. While it was in Taurus it was material concerns, substance. Now in Gemini, there are concerns about our intellect, how we think, communicate, our breath of life, connections with the world – political, climate change, the Internet.

If you don’t have your chart, get a free one at Astro.com. Stars move forward through the zodiac at one degree every 72 years. You can find all the star positions here: The Fixed Stars in Longitude Order. Use the long 2000 column for current positions.

Both of these fixed star aspects having just passed still carry possible serious considerations. Perhaps you are going to be more careful, conscientious, attentive. Maybe there are some things to be faced or said, done. It may be uncomfortable, but don’t miss your window. Be loving.

This is a seasonal Blue Moon. It is derived from the older definition of the term – the third of four full moons in a season, this one between the March equinox and the June solstice of 2016.

Full Moons reach out, open doors and gateways.

New Moon – 14 Degree 6 Planet Mutable Cross/Grand Square, Saturn Square Neptune

Saturday June 4, 7:59 PM Pacific at 14 Gemini 53

Meteor Shower Denver

The Metropolis, a grid of earth lights below, echoing the skyways, the Milky Way,  and, in this case, Meteors over Denver – connections to everywhere!

Gemini has this supreme urge to communicate anytime, anywhere, with anyone! It can be microscopic, holding hands with your sweetheart, to extraterrestrial contact with magnificent stars, comets, meteors, beings ~ it’s being infused, imprinted with galaxies of knowledge from times far, far away. Dark New Moon nights are perfect.

Mercury is no longer retrograde, but will finish its Phase 3, tidying up in Taurus, June 7. Only a few short days to go! Bodily matters will be more peaceful, possessions will settle, snafus will untangle and relax, monies have potential after all! June 3, the day before our New Moon, Mercury crosses the TRANSIT of MERCURY, ECLIPSE of the Sun degree the last time, this time going forward. We’ve been thinking about things, and this is a reminder to carry the Eclipse message forward. That cycle is ending as well as the Moon ending her 27 day cycle, merging with Father Sun. Crossing the Transit degree reminds us of our Eclipse exchange, the infusion by Father Sun, the Message. The Moon in Gemini, Mercury’s sign, fully absorbs the upgrade, intuitively getting even more through the lunar conduit. The thread continues, opens the doors to an extended range, another cycle.

Gemini is an information gathering time, and it’s coming from every direction! The Moon and Sun are with Venus! This threesome holds the fourth point with three outer planets in a T Square, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, forming a Mutable Cross, Grand Square! We have six planets spread through Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces! Balancing, charging and changing, the Four Directions, a lot to consider, many options to coordinate! Stay Steady in the Light in the Center. Breathe.

  • Gemini has Venus, Moon and Sun at the SAME degree, 14! Venus is things we want, beauty and adornment, love. Coming from Taurus, it is more concerned with our bodies and now sculpting our minds, our words to attract what’s organically the best for us. The Moon loves her food, and finger foods rule in Gemini! There are things to do, places to go and we’re on the move! She feeds our mind with memories and intuitions, Mothers’ magic, woman power, knows the public pulse, business cycles! The Sunbeams give us Light and hope, lead the way to meet many, share maximum, spread the good word heart to heart!
  • These New Moon three are with the Fixed Star Rigel, at 16 Gemini 50! Rigel is in the constellation Orion, a double star, the 7th brightest in the sky. Rigel has mixed reviews ranging from splendor and honors, a strong and dignified nature, self-confidence, to inconstancy, arrogance, violence, impiety. It offers prosperity in trade and particularly by voyages or abroad, but danger of treachery and poison.It’s said if Rigel is conjunct with the Sun, Moon, as it is here, MC or Ascendant, a quick rise in life is promised on account of a strong, inherent willpower, love of action, and a lucky hand in enterprise, but a continuous battle to retain an acquired position has to be waged. Ironically, this fight at the same time stimulates an increase in vigor. Even in spite of unhelpful aspects, success and reaching the set aim can be secured by this powerful concentration. If however the native is not cautious or has an attack of weakness, failure and disappointments, a fall from success will follow. Be careful and hang onto your socks!
  • Virgo has Jupiter also at degree 14! That’s four planets at the 14th degree, tight and tasty! Jupiter wants the meaning of all that data Gemini has gathered. It wants to give it a direction, a purpose. In Virgo it places the details, the juicy components in consummate order, a system that flows like a beautiful river, with each valuable piece in the most useful position. The North Node is retrograding to meet Jupiter. The North is ascending beyond its old footing, no finer companion to explore with than Jupiter the traveler. Together they will do training and teach life saving methods of good work and great health. They get a little twitted at times, nervous about whether it will all work out, Jupiter sometimes exaggerating his fears, but that same exaggeration is the backside of unquenchable hope and optimism, expansive thinking! It’s doable!
  • Saturn is holding the fort in Sagittarius. You know how it’s sometimes like herding kittens, well Sag is famous for seeking greener grass, a whole lot of fun, and simply enjoys the trip, anywhere! Saturn says ok that’s fine long as we finish this job so we can pay for the trip! Aw, ok, I know, we said we would. What’s next? Bring me that book so I can look up the specs. So Saturn is the time keeper, inspector, build-it-right, responsible one who keeps everyone on task. He knows he can’t keep ’em corralled forever, so tailors the parts to suit the worker, and, hallelujah, it gets done on time even! Great job, well done on everyone’s part!
  • Neptune in Pisces is the dreamer, wants to save the world, or their part of it, if possible. If nothing, they want to make some contribution that makes a difference. If they are working on that particular project, they are on board and even a whimsical Pisces will focus right up and add astonishing insights, saving time right and left! They often know good resources, contacts that will donate to the cause. Don’t expect them to ‘follow orders,’ wisely allow time outs. They can look tough, but know that there is a sensitive Soul in there. Respect them or you may have a consequence later. Ask and really listen. Just because they don’t speak firmly doesn’t mean they don’t mean it or it’s not valuable. Their input is priceless.
  • Back to Gemini. Walkie Talkie! Talking too much may dilute the message or drop down to chit chat. Keep your priorities and pay attention when people glaze over. Take a break and rethink your priorities, stick to ’em. Ask what’s needed next then go get the info. Do some marketing, get the word out! Connect people with like minds and that have info the other needs, then blitz off to the next good source! Get the blog up and running. Take it easy on those Virgos. Once they start working, more talk distracts and slows them down. Just check to be sure they are on course. Give Sagittarians enough to chew on. If they don’t take you seriously, ask them what would make the difference to them. Neptunians won’t parrot back to you. They listen more to the feel of things and often come back with non sequiturs that you triggered. Trust that. They are connected in some subtle way….

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is leaving a Grand Trine in Earth. He almost trined Jupiter, got the closest possible when he turned direct May 22. Good luck, some kind of fame or fortune was just a finger’s length away, could smell it! But nope, didn’t quite happen. But, did make the trine to Pluto the 30th, Memorial Day. Some powerful insight occurred, a contract was signed, a lucrative connection made, healing words spoken, a secret or confidence shared. These may bloom to full understanding as we carry them to and sit with them at the New Moon, new words, new beginnings.

In a different degree set, Mercury sextiles Chiron June 8. Mars is retrograding back to oppose Mercury in Taurus June 9, trine Chiron in Pisces June 12, then inconjunct Uranus in Aries June 18.  Going to be lively!

  • Mercury gets the dialogue going with Chiron. There may be some reminiscing, or a sense of communion. This more patient and commiserating connection will ease the way for Mars opposite Mercury when sparks could fly. But Mars knows some things must be said and encourages Mercury who may have been patient way too long in Taurus.
  • Mars in Scorpio retrograde opposite Mercury in Taurus June 9 could be Vesuvius! Mars has had secret things accumulating, being restimulated, possibly even from the past. Important things. Private relationship matters, sexual, financial power plays, fears of death, fears of life! They can be perpetrator or defender, healer. Mercury in Taurus can be maddenly slow, on purpose or just naturally, or so patient, thankfully calming. They have a strong mind and are hard to push off their spot. Common sense is your best ally. Let them know what’s in it for them that is good for everybody. They may shift then. Know there will be 180 differences. See the values in both sides.Don’t push so hard that people dig in their heels. Both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs. Even though Mars may look like a whirlwind circling, don’t be fooled that they may change. That might just show you they could be nervous, need to be talked down. No condescending. At times Mars can bully, by scaring you with his speed. Speed does not necessarily indicate change either. Take it easy. Think about what can be useful that each has to offer without changing anyone! Chiron is in good position to heal the situation since it trines Mars and sextiles Mercury. Look to a third party to see things through.
  • In the retrograde degrees, Mars trines Chiron while retrograde June 12, and while going forward July 17. Mars in Scorpio will stir Chiron’s cauldron. It’s looking for the keys to healing, to open the threshold to advanced teachings, awaken the Kundalini, know the meaning of life itself. Security, prevention and protection from harm, will be sought and succeeds. Invincibility has limits, whether a more clever foe or simply old age. Clean up, take good care of yourself. See the best therapist. Offer to volunteer, make amends as needed to make good relationships. Be honest in business dealings, no cheating, no manipulating. Seek common goals helpful to all concerned. Set July 17 as a marker for this particular work.
  • Mars inconjuncts Uranus twice in the retrograde degrees, June 18 and July 13. Mars is the planet of Aries, so these two have a spunky link! Mars is the leader, initiator, first one, fighter, defender! He is spontaneous, is the amazing first responder fireman, ambulance medic, 100% on-the-spot intuition! Uranus loves that in-the-moment speed and intelligence! Scorpio is a tad intense, but that suits them all! Uranus loves different and being on the cutting edge. He’s surprised he can be surprised! It may not be a lasting encounter, but is distracting from the usual humdrum and definitely entertaining and enlivening! Mars takes a swipe, and is amazed that Uranus dodges him so easily. Uranus is usually the one who shocks people, so he wakes up too. That was close; he’s not quite as untouchable as he thought! Each is slightly askew, the right place to consider new facets of current events!

In 13 days, Saturn will square Neptune for the 2nd time. This aspect is important because of its long duration. It ran seven months in 2015 at two different times, and will a third period in 2016 for 6+ months. In 2016, it runs from April 13 to Oct 31, with second exact aspect June 17 at 12 Sag, and the final aspect Sep 10 at 10 Sag.

At worst, Saturn in Sagittarius, holds his opinion as law, shutting down any intuitive responses of Neptune. However, Neptune is in his own sign Pisces, doubly potent, can’t be quelled forever. Saturn says that psychic stuff is ridiculous, of course. At best, perhaps, Saturn teaches people who suffer addictions how to get back into the world, giving them realistic examples of successes that are stable, giving them tasks to show them they can do it too! There may be processing of profound griefs along the way. Or, Saturn himself loses faith and it takes the gentle Piscean compassion to understand and reconnect his Spirit. Saturn may have traveled far, variously abandoning himself, others, all his seeking fallen short, to find himself collapsed at Neptune’s feet, ready to hear a truth that was always there. Neptune may say a few words that unlock the Gate of Fears and Saturn walks through the Fire free!

Saturn is always the Builder, looking to the long term. It may be mind, it may be matter. It may be the Temple of Wisdom, or carrying the nomad coals of light. In Sagittarius he is divine protector of knowledge. Pisces is the spiritual seeker, dreamer, intuitive, believer without proof. The spiritual tides wash away karmic debris, soften edges, reduce resistance. Saturn helps collect the ideas, give them focus, bring them to a consortium of useful existence. Neptune inspires; Saturn gives them a home. See more

Gemini is the Breath, the Word of God, since Mercury, Gemini’s planet, always travels closely with the Sun. Venus conjunct both Sun and Moon is giving her blessing and grace.

Full Strawberry Moon, Sun Cancer ~ Summer Solstice!
Mutable Cross, Grand Square ~ Jupiter Trine Pluto!

Monday June 20, 4:02 AM Pacific at 29 Gemini/Sagittarius 33

Full Strawberry Moon

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each support an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brings in Gemini, and Mercury turns forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opens the new cycle that sets up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune is three days preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that, will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! Pray for all Souls. If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be.
