Chiron from Pisces to Aries! Belgian Designer Vincent Callebaut

Astonishing Belgian artist and author Vincent Callebaut designs sustainable buildings with flow and innovation beyond average thought! This is a multi-purpose complex for Nasr City in Cairo, Egypt. More

Jupiter sextile Pluto, traveling closely, sets the stage for three months! Just after its last aspect April 14, 2018, Chiron makes the first outer planet sign change of five in 2018 three days later on April 17. Jupiter in Scorpio hopes for the biggest and best future possible. Pluto in Capricorn wishes to heal the way, clear the path to build that future Jupiter has its sights on! They have set up a brilliant plan and part of it will be carried out by healer, business person and partner maker Chiron! See more about Jupiter sextile Pluto! 

Before Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron is in Aries April 17 to May 15! 28 Days we have two outer planets in Aries! Exchanges of information will be carried on, Uranus counting on Chiron to mend any gaps Uranus leaves behind. In effect Uranus passes the baton to Chiron!

They will again both be in Aries for 16 days in 2019 from Feb 18 to March 6. It’s a final check in and checkup. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries after its retrograde. Uranus has retrograded back into Aries, is finishing that passage, re-entering Taurus, leaving Aries March 6. Review April 17 to May 15, 2018. Polish up the details, finalize the good foundation for them in their new signs. Strong new beginnings are vital.

The Aries Mercury Retrograde cycle at Chiron’s sign change sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change forward, direct, at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 4 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them.

Chiron has a highly elliptical 51 year orbit, spending 10 years in half of the signs and 40 years in the other half! It was 7 years in Pisces, 2011-2018. It will be 9 years in Aries, 2018 to 2027.

Chiron is now finishing its zodiacal cycle, in the last sign Pisces. April 17 it enters Aries, the first sign, for a preview. It sees inspiring new ideas, what to be done next. It retrogrades at 2 Aries July 4, returns to Pisces Sep 25. The new ideas are compared with the dreams Pisces has and are intuitively scanned for how they best fit for the greatest good, and the best procedures to implement them. Chiron doesn’t turn forward until 2019, later returning to Aries for keeps.

Chiron’s nature is to heal and teach due to a mythological ongoing extreme suffering imposed by others with more power. He was unable to change that, but he was a hero! He learned so much, taught so much, in spite of this suffering. We can all do something, a kind word, recognition of that hero quality in all of us. In Pisces there is an added savior quality, one who first saves himself, best he can be the living example, that he may save others. Every day we see hundreds of loving examples. Mothers, Dads, teachers, ministers, nurses, hospice workers. Prisoners who fight fires. Builders who rebuild the lost homes. Animal rescuers. Be so aware. See that greater quality in each other that we often take for granted. Do your part best you can. You are part of the divine fabric; it’s so important you uphold your position.

Aries steps forward in a passionate blaze of Light! Chiron carries the healing forward, instantly stepping in as soon as it sees the need. It invents instant techniques, takes the chance and saves the day! Aries takes the risk when others would hesitate. They are fast in their Spirit, blessed with split second awareness, and ride their bikes! And they keep trying! Aries is not considered a sign of partnership, but the Magi astrologers consider Chiron to be the planet of marriage! Chiron in Aries might make an unprecedentedly quick move. You may not be able to resist, but if possible, give it the standard tests of time. If you don’t respond quickly enough though, they may move on without you. You might feel you made the mistake of a lifetime, or you might be so incredibly relieved you didn’t! Chiron also is considered to be a business planet by the Magi. 2018 there will certainly be a time of recovery for many – in the US, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. So many have been displaced and torn from their lives as they knew them. New businesses will be born as people collaborate to build new lives. Bless them all for the heroes they are.

Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces Sep 25

Sep 22 is Fall Equinox, the time of balancing our forces, equality. Sep 23 is the glorious Aries/Libra Harvest Moon, light in the night that calls our spirits! Aries is the first sign, independent, while Libra is working together, reunion at the end of the day to share the evening meal. Then comes Chiron back from Aries, returning to Pisces, the last sign, Sep 25. Pisces is all Souls, the All-is-One. There is the binding Unity of Being. We all live, we all die. We all sleep, we all awaken. Pisces reinforces the Union of Brother and Sisterhood, dreams we have of higher good, service to and for all.

Back in Pisces for the rest of 2018, Chiron searches the archives of Spirit, to find the core purpose for being. An ultimate compassion is further awakened. Art and music are sought as venues of expression that take us beyond words. Time is chosen for silence, listening with our entire being. Pisces takes us to sea, negative ions. We let the waves wash over our feet. We release our sorrows and fears. A subtle cleansing takes place and we are more free to see. Namaste.

Life, our part in it, has more meaning than ever. Chiron may take us back to school for a review or to bring us up-to-date. We upgrade our perception and skills. We may learn more about how to teach. There are so many techniques worldwide. It is more common now to mingle learning with spiritual or alternative techniques. Relationships are more precious. Friends, mates, business partners. Business calls for genuine encompassing caring, research showing the interconnectedness of all enterprises to us and Earth herself. It is not a time for rebuilding, but building anew. It is time for a more ultimate sustainability.

The final shift into Aries is Feb 18, 2019. It will take courage to take on key leadership positions to make change. Chiron will heal leaders who take on the battles to save lives, establish more equity, show us all better ways to partner, do ethical business, replace the old guard. True champions and heroes will come out of chaos.

Mercury Retrograde Odeleite Portugal Blue Dragon River

The Odeleite in the municipality of Castro Marim, Portugal, aka “The Blue Dragon River!” In China this traveler’s image went viral! The mythical beast symbolizes force, quality and good fortunes. Super auspicious! 

The fiery red upper reaches lead to the elegant blue below as the river widens to the lower lake. 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 in the river can slow flood flow. Gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare. Much like our retrogrades that weave through life!

Mercury 2018 has the standard 3 Mercury Rxs with a fire sign emphasis. Fire by nature is somewhat ungovernable. Aries just gets there fast and first, zip! Leo is himself and no other. Sagittarius will not be stopped or owned. Fire can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warms your very Soul. It raises you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

This Aries Retrograde cycle, Mercury hosts the second Jupiter sextile Pluto April 15, the day before Mercury turns forward, Direct! Mercury will be in its 8 day Station, appearing still in the sky 4 days before and after its turn, steeping in the sextile, witnessing, observing, collecting data, selecting the good points of the lucky sextile to take along to use. In Aries, Mercury will be super alert to nuances that make a quick difference. Thinking skills will improve, new tools acquired, inspiration grows 10 fold!

It also sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 2 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them. See more

This will be increased in April as Mercury sequences with Mars aspects. Mars is the Aries planet! It’s hot action! Aries is fast and first, a sprinter and bike rider. Loves doing under its own steam. It helps at emergencies and births. People get started in a new life when Aries is around and there’s no going back! Relationships may be brief, quickly renewed and just as quickly left again. You better like ’em the way they are; they aren’t famous for change. They are just independent. Mercury is the thinker, so for some, this will be an exultant time of the mind! Doesn’t matter which way Mercury is going, forward or backward, it’s a flash! Each direction is enjoyably challenging, Aries is no coward, not ever! A new vantage point is delightful and intoxicating! Great to try new things and angles! It may be good to have a financial manager you enjoy to guide the enterprises through the narrows. One enterprise is not enough or boredom sets in. And that will never last long with most Aries! The manager has to be clever enough to talk with you rather than tell you what to do. Aries hot spots are the head, the eyes. Infections, fevers, cuts, punctures, bleeding. Most illnesses are crises, not chronic. If your Aries is overweight and lying about, they likely need appreciation, encouragement and inspiration! Going up or down the retrograde turns, they will soon be curious, then just get outta their way, LOL! The switch has been flipped!

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Mar 8 at 4 Aries 46. March 22 Mercury retrogrades at mid Aries, 16 Aries 54. April 15, Mercury turns forward, April 16 Jupiter sextiles Pluto the second time. The entire cycle finishes May 3. Aries is a Cardinal sign, gets things moving. Mercury will stand up to other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn – the signs of parents and mates. In Aries, fire sign, it pushes earth signs Taurus and Virgo. It has an in with Virgo, Virgo being  Mercury’s second sign. Might even stampede them though Virgo has seen his type before. Mercury will liven the cauldrons of water signs Scorpio and Pisces. It jumps up with other fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, though Leo may not take kindly to being rousted from his lionly nap. Mercury in Aries sparks with the air signs Gemini (Mercury’s first sign), and Aquarius! How high can we fly?! And they don’t stop talking! It would take years to cover what’s on their minds! Mercury in Aries thinks in action. He may take a group on walkabout! Several of these combinations may go a bit rowdy!

If the Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – Aries especially involves vehicles, bicycles, mechanical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned trips and ventures are likely. Though it is unArieslike, schedule to keep tabs on what becomes a new moving object in your life! Be sure your important papers are securely stowed, keep valuables and sentimentals with you. Keys, glasses and bike locks secure, clothing can’t blow away. No setting things on the top of your car. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done May 3!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Aries can be spontaneous and off on a new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

The Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron into Aries, and the April Mars aspects specially imprint this Retrograde cycle! Here’s the timetable:


8    Mercury Retrograde first phase starts
10  Mercury square Saturn 1st of 3
17  St Patrick’s New Moon, Mars into Capricorn
19  Mercury conjunct Venus one time sweet day
20  Sun in Aries, Spring Equinox! Four planets now in Aries!
22  Mercury Retrograde
31  Full Blue Moon


2    Mars conjunct Saturn
4    Mercury square Mars
5    Mercury square Saturn 2nd of 3
15  Mercury Direct, turns forward on New Moon! Reset!
19  Sun into Taurus!
23  Mars sextile Jupiter in Scorpio
25  Mercury square Saturn 3rd of 3
26  Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn

May  3   Entire Mercury Retrograde cycle finishes!

The last retrograde, in Sagittarius, Mercury conjuncted Saturn three times. The only repetitive aspect Mercury in Aries forms this retrograde cycle is its square to Saturn three times. It’s as if it is putting on the brakes, and we know how fast these fire signs can go! Have your brakes checked to see they are working well. Check your thinking to see if you are keeping priorities, staying on track. Allow enough time for the usual retrograde delays, breakdowns. Get a little more rest because there could be more stress than usual. You may alternate hot and cold. Layers are good.

There are two Mars activation sequences in April. The two sequences are tied together because Mars conjuncts the two planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto.

  1. April 2 Mars conjuncts Saturn. It can be a tired time, a bit down, accidental, fraught with delays and overworked. Mars wants Saturn to try his new ideas! Saturn likes his routine, but is ultimately practical and knows some ideas will be more productive. He listens to this upstart because they are in the same sign and speak the same language. He sees Mars is being careful. Yes, implementing the new ideas will take a bit more time in the beginning, but Mars in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, is good at what he does, is faster than most and quick to see what needs to be done, does it on the spot! Breakthrough! April 4 and 5, Mercury squares first Mars then Saturn. Things could get a bit grumpy, depressed, but Mercury is the messenger and is in Mars’ own sign Aries! So they can talk and then, perhaps, even together, clear up any delays due to Saturn’s technicalities. What could have failed may come through with reasonable persistence, respect and adjustments in the beginning. More can come later.
  2. The big sequence starts as Mercury turns Direct April 15 at the New Moon! Double new beginnings! April 14 Jupiter sextiles Pluto followed by Mars aspects well after Mercury is on his way forward! Mercury is making final decisions and shifts, mature in the cycle! Mars sextiles Jupiter the 23rd, Mercury squares Saturn the 25th, Mars conjuncts Pluto the 26th! Mercury square Saturn ties to the April 2 Mars conjunct Saturn. The rules and regs still need consideration. The new ideas probably need a review. Mars sextile Jupiter, conjunct Pluto reiterates and keeps the lucky Jupiter sextile Pluto cooking! Philosophy is great, action takes it home! Mars reminds Jupiter what the project is, why it’s important to DO! Mars jumps seriously in Pluto’s cauldron reminding him of his financial commitment! Without the $, Jupiter can’t get or keep it rolling! It’s worth the effort and Mars is willing to work for it. LAST is Chiron into Aries, while the Sun is in Aries, April 17! Perfect!

Aries is always up on the latest, inspired and leads the crew to install those newfangled contraptions that make your work easier, increase the returns. They are great consultants off to their next installation!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!


Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Total Lunar ECLIPSE Full Blue SuperMoon!
150 Years! Moon’s Nodes, Venus, Mercury & Jupiter!  

Partial Solar ECLIPSE New Moon!
Chinese New Year, Fixed Star Algol, Venus, Mars & Jupiter!


Total Lunar ECLIPSE Full Blue SuperMoon!
150 Years! Moon’s Nodes, Venus, Mercury & Jupiter!  

Wednesday Jan 31, 5:27 AM Pacific at 11 Leo/AQ 34!

2018 Total Lunar Eclipse Blue Blood SuperMoon

First time in 150 years!!! Being the Second Full Moon of January, makes it a Blue Moon! And, it is the FIRST ECLIPSE of 2018! The Moon turns a rusty blood red as it passes through Earth’s shadow. Annnd, it will be visible in most of western North America! At 5:27 AM Pacific, we Westies will be getting up early!

Being a SuperMoon, our Eclipse will be closer to Earth, just a little bigger and brighter! Leo Moon loves it that way! Praying for a clear early morning sky! Snug in your down jacket, warm boots, and bring the hot chocolate!

The Eclipse group closely spans the Moon’s nodes, Moon at the North node ascending! Time to light up the night! Leo warms the heart, creates a generous space, shares volumes! Moon cares about and Leo dotes on loved ones and they both love being sweeted and treated! Bring the kids, both children and adult kids, that is. In fact, why not gather in the field or on the mountaintop for Eclipse viewing?! Leo calls us to stand tall in ourselves, calls our bodies and Spirits to be champions. Leo IS the sign of our sun, LIGHT.

At the other side of our Full Moon, Sun and Venus are together in Aquarius! Sun in AQ loves the heavenly view, could even be on a flight and watching the Eclipse from altitude! Sun is a great friend in Aquarius, and he and Venus love the blessings of their friends. There is such beauty in each unique Soul, gifts beyond measure. They offer a loving kindness, a grace to all. The gathering, their unity, is so much greater than one alone.

Collaborating is a grand tactic! Leo offers the fire of inspiration, enthusiastically their entire selves, to the cause. Aquarius gathers the Souls. Aquarius can be a loner at times, contemplating the astonishing possibilities of change and evolution! And there are times they just need to be free. Just free. They drift away. Sometimes they don’t come back. But if, when, they do, they are supercharged and things get delegated and done!

The Eclipse is at 11 degrees. Neptune neighbors the Sun at 12 Pisces, and inconjuncts the Moon. Neptune adds mystery, an unknown dose of magic, invisibilities like dreams, ideals, Spirit of the Soul. It seeks to heal the causes of addictions, as well as to make music and art. It calls for compassion and empathy as well as thoughtful humanitarianism. Neptune reflects Moon’s light that shimmers on the waves and waters, that she may see many more facets of life and creation. Leo can be stubborn sometimes, enjoying things just the way they were, but Moon has her cycles and Neptune dissolves us into future fate, gives an invitation to an even bigger life! Imagination is key!

Caution. Venus is soon to square Jupiter, Feb 3 at 10:07 PM Pacific. In Aquarius she wants the world or doesn’t care at all, about anything! Jupiter thinks she should have it if she wants it, but in Scorpio, the question is how much and who pays for it?! Is she being greedy or selfish? If it’s a fundraiser there may be trouble getting started, the donor reneges or has left the country, or wants too much control of the operation. Venus may want something people don’t understand, too exotic, ahead of its time. Lot of explaining/demonstrating to do or they just don’t get it. Break it down into smaller bites and start with what can be done at this time. Pay attention to security matters and keep tabs on existing accounts. Principles matter. If the donor is unethical, you may decide not to accept the offer. Check the contract carefully. Oh, and this is not the One, at least not at this time.

Mercury is at the very brink of Aquarius, carries the Full Moon information forward! The Eclipse is 5:27 AM Pacific; Mercury goes into AQ 13 minutes later, 5:40 AM! Capricorn work is so finished! Mission accomplished, feather in our caps! Mercury’s best sign is considered to be Aquarius, the sign of genius! There is a whole Universe out there to explore, playground of the Gods! There is often a little bit of delightfully giddy chaos! Connections are made at light speed, a streak through the heavens! Networks come together. Phones and internet are too slow. Astonishing ideas. Research is on the cutting edge. And this is only the beginning! It’s a brief flare as Mercury rides the lightning so do it NOW! He goes into Pisces Feb 17, but what a ride! The word is out and the lights are ON!

Though it was exact Jan 15, the day before the New Moon, the powerful long term background aspect Jupiter sextile Pluto is still strong! And it will continue to be! Jupiter and Pluto travel less than 3 degrees of each other for FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14.

Jupiter will come close to its trine with Chiron, but retrogrades 2 degrees before it completes. Very close, but won’t complete that trine until Nov 1, and then only once. There is a strong desire for deep healing, healing of the cause, at the source. There is a longing to do business that matters in a good way. We whisper of eternal love, set a greater standard, wait for the right timing.

With Jupiter & Pluto, expect further shifts in educational status. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra-kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! Try out new investments. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. Careful timing is required this year due to some complex and lengthy inner planet retrograde sequences. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

Literally, keep the future in mind and take action accordingly. 2020 and 2021 are very soon. Keep climate in mind. Seek higher, safer ground with good water and sustainability. Be with people making the world a better place.

Happy SuperMoon Eclipse viewing!

Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon!
Chinese New Year, Fixed Star Algol, Venus, Mars & Jupiter!

Thursday Feb 15 at 1:05 PM Pacific, 27 AQ 08!

Aquarius 2018 New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse

The day after Valentine’s Day, a partial Solar Eclipse, the Moon cookie bites the Sun! Not visible in North America.

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! In addition to the New Moon, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, so it’s like a triple eclipse! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific, before the New Moon here. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care, about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear or say. Feb 16, Chinese New Year in the US, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the brown Earth dog. See more about the Brown Earth Dog year!

Moon aligns and merges with Sun, an essence of the two Lights in Aquarius. At a late degree, 27, it is a mature Sun. In the last 27 days much has happened and been accomplished. An annual recentering and affirmation has brought Aquarians back to their extraordinary Light Body selves. They are at their final charging for their year to come. It takes energy to awaken humanity, to introduce changes, to gather such diverse Souls for collaborative group work. Hats off to these Beings. Sun literally lights the way; Moon nurtures the clan, the mothers and children, the weak and tired. She retrieves those who are lost.

Moon and Sun have both also been charged by Uranus, their own planet! They just sextiled Uranus. Uranus in Aries is like a fire breathing dragon! There is no missing its wild electric scent! There’s fire in the forge. Time to give a little shove in the right direction. Throw down the gauntlet and see who comes. One person, one act, is all it takes to start it going. Aries is ignition and initiation! Aquarius is the Awakener! Feel that tingle of excitement! Once up and out, you can still go back, but it’s not the same old, same old. Nope.

To add to it, Mercury in Aquarius just sextiled red hot and spicy Uranus in Aries! That’s potent for two reasons. Mercury’s best sign is considered to be Aquarius, genius! And Uranus is the Aquarian planet! Crazy, amazing, odd and exotic ideas zip through our minds! We go from just wanting our freedom to wanting to join the most fabulous exciting organization to ramrod our project that never seemed possible before, but here it is now! We make super friends in an instant. The world is awakening and it’s time for meaningful change! Seeds are being planted. Mercury carries these ideas right to the heart of the Sun Feb 17! He jumps right into the LIGHT! He receives the infusion, the charge, the batteries are stoked for the next run! He goes right into Pisces that night, so it may be a bit murky for a while, but he has the torch! It’s not dark for long though – the Sun follows into Pisces the next day!

Venus is sextiling Saturn to make sure it all gets done. Saturn is in his own sign Capricorn. That equals getting the job done by definition! Capricorns are efficient and dedicated. Saturn carries the mission to completion. Venus in Pisces has the dream and Capricorn is her valiant ally and guardian. She admires his work, gives thanks for what he builds brick by brick, board by board. She sweetens Saturn’s day.

Chiron also in Pisces, but at a much later degree, is square the Galactic Center. He vows to make the breakthroughs required to make it all possible, be so much more than expected!

Adventurer Mars in Sagittarius loves a challenge and in Sag is the champion of the greater Truth! He doesn’t publish stories, he IS the story! At this point he is square Neptune, the Pisces planet in Pisces! He is poised to put the whammy on Neptune’s fears and addictions, release the Princess from her prison of her own making! The New Moon gets right to the center of things, so Mars is perfectly placed. Aquarius puts an air of detachment on things, allows less emotionalism, more clarity. These breakthroughs may be shocking at the moment of the breaking, but there is kind of an Ah…. about it too. Finally, released. We had been waiting. The Eclipse first also helps. It gives some quieter moments yet the channel is intense. The message comes through. Mars makes the exact square the 17th 3:21 AM Pacific, so essentially, the 16th is the active day.

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Our last New Moon trined Algol, but this time it squares Algol, 26 Taurus. Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus or have factors at 26 degrees, you may have some potent personal insights. It’s the head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. The detached aspect of Aquarius, unafraid, sees problems squarely and shockingly may tell all out loud. That bald assessment may cause the outer shell to be shattered, we then be free to heal a long held layer of agony. That sounds melodramatic perhaps, but it can make all the difference whether we stay in chains or move forward with our lives.

Jupiter sextile Pluto in Capricorn continues in the background. Wealth, super health, possibly the mate of a lifetime!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, so the link is in sync! Scorpio and Capricorn are pros. Scorpio makes the money that funds Capricorn’s goal! Capricorn uses it precisely, no time wasted, so the money goes further than expected. Good chance the project makes money before it is even finished! Scorpio makes astute relationships, whether personal or business. Capricorn places people well along the way, competently assessing their abilities, leading them to higher places they never knew they could get to. Health improves with happiness, and being in that right place at the right time can make us forget we ever had troubles. Think improvements, modernizing, sustainability! Good job!

Jupiter wants to educate, and Scorpio doesn’t spare the depth, perfecting every detail from inside to out! Jupiter sees the long term, so Scorpio opens his eyes below, above and beyond! This inner and outer vision at once opens all kinds of corridors. Old debris is carted away, energy is freed. Jupiter shouts the glory with a mighty song, perhaps not unlike the mischievous opera singer Cecilia Bartoli! (She has Jupiter in Cancer mutual reception Moon in Sagittarius!) Jupiter feels the huge support Scorpio offers with his strength and inner knowing. Scorpio is impassioned by the potential Jupiter sees and knows is within reach! See more

Jupiter is slowing to retrograde March 9 at 23 degrees Scorpio. He almost trines Chiron, inconjuncts Uranus. Those aspects will come Nov 1 and 7. With Chiron we see the potential for alternative healing and business methods, the possibility of personal and financial partnerships. Head in those directions. The inconjunct with Uranus will take us new directions; we will consider some unusual options. Keep looking. We have hints of what’s to come, we start getting ready. We may be disappointed when it doesn’t happen yet. Seeds have been planted. Nurture them for as far as they have gotten. Some may be slumbering; keep them alive. Enhance their habitat so they can do good work when it’s their time.

Aquarius is an air sign. Do some breath work. Sing your Om shanti. Make your call to the brethren. They will come.

Jupiter Scorpio Pluto Capricorn Undervalued Sustainable Stocks

A practical thought that may cross our minds. See Sierra Club’s investment program called Aspiration!

Jupiter in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, and Pluto in Capricorn, clear life up for long term ventures. The first two aspects, Jan 15 to April 14 are close and continuous for three months! They clean the frequencies so following outer planet sign changes can be free of debris. This aspect is especially the final preparation for Chiron’s sign change from Pisces to Aries April 17, then Uranus changing from Aries to Taurus May 15! The sign being finished can be brought to a pure maturity with satisfaction and no regrets. The sign we move into gets a clean start, a better chance to do what it is intended to do! It’s a three sign sequential change – Pisces, Aries, Taurus. Pisces is the dreamer/believer. Aries is the initiator, takes action to get it started. Taurus, a fixed sign, anchors and stabilizes. Both Chiron and Uranus share the Aries energy. It’s as if the baton is passed, Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron is already on board as backup to keep Aries rolling! They exchange information while they are both in Aries, April 17 to May 15!

Jan 15 Jupiter sextile Pluto is the first aspect of 2018, sets the tone for the year! They travel closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months to the retrograde aspect April 14. The third follows Sep 12, after the last two Jupiter trine Neptunes. Visions are inspiring! Any last remnants of debris that become apparent are cleared away! We are free to go!

The first sextile is at a powerful time of focus! When the Moon starts in Capricorn 11:42 AM Pacific Jan 14, until it goes into Aquarius 0:32 AM the 17th, we will be having the largest grouping of planets in one sign (stellium) in 2018 – SIX in 26 Capricorn (including Pluto!)! Also the sextile is the day before 2018’s first New Moon!! The New Moon is Jan 16 at 26 Capricorn 54. Capricorn is the last of the working signs, the Earth signs. With the merger of Moon to Sun, it will seal the principles together with both feminine and masculine expertise. It will be dedicated and carry the purpose as its top priority. Intuition will bring clear results.

The second sextile is also at a New Moon, again, the day before! The New Moon is 26 Aries, sign on new beginnings, the first sign of the zodiac, and it trines the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius! Also, on the same day of and before the New Moon, Mercury goes Direct, out of retrograde, beginning to release new energy! Several reasons to celebrate! When Mercury is at a turning point, it is stilled for 8 days, what we call in station. There is a sustained reception, a focus, an anchoring of what we have in mind. Since this second sextile is the end of 3 months of working with Jupiter sextile Pluto, it is a culminating time as well. It will be good to affirm the fruits of our learning. The Aries New Moon will abound with new ideas. Tuned to the Galactic Center, they will be as epic as an Aries can make them! And this time it’s not just Aries enthusiasm! Do give them a thoughtful listen! They are speaking with the tongues of Angels!

The third sextile is four days after a new moon, but the day after the Sun in Virgo sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! That should warm things up! Virgo applies the data, organizes for effective results! Nurse or accountant, that’s invaluable! Jupiter and Pluto should make some quite productive working decisions.

Scorpio and Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, are the agents that clean up the messes! They can be in your mind, your health, your household plumbing, shackles that need to be removed or be less cruel, toxic waste on land or at sea. Jupiter sees where things can go, in Scorpio the Path gets cleared of obstructions and doubts. Pluto in Capricorn guards the old ways, but also has an eye to blind spots buried deep that need updating. Capricorn wants to do the best business possible with the least expense and time, so is on board when a better proven way is shown and is willing to chance some changes. More progress than we knew could be possible!

Jupiter in Scorpio wants education to be meaningful. Pluto in Capricorn wants it to be useful. Jupiter and Pluto want the very best. Go for that! Go to centers or schools that specialize about what you love! Do on the job training, get experience. Volunteer with clarity. Think more long term.

Finances are important to your planning and this can be a lucrative time! It may be tempting to invest everything you’ve got, but diversify a bit. If one or two do better, put more monies there! If you are good with percentages, do it yourself, otherwise, this may be a good time to do it with the pros! Check out their astrology chart before you engage them!

Alliances may be lifelong, and if you have great aspects yourself, it could be a fine marriage merger with both productive business and lots of pleasure! Jupiter is lucky and in Scorpio sees the deepest best in you, reasonable flaws are accepted and forgiven. Ironically, it is also a good time for divorce as well. Financial matters will be shared, well-tended, or divvied up with an equitable settlement if necessary. Intimacy may be so special, and if renewed with lots of appreciation and affection, your marriage could be saved.

Health is likely to improve or be more comfortable. The source of illness will be sought at the deepest levels. As layers are revealed, healing occurs that opens deeper doors. It will be a mix of old remedies and modern medicine, and your psychology. Healing is rarely by touch of the magic wand, but instead, hard work that requires us to learn and understand. Jupiter sees the potential and if you wisely hang onto it, you will be quite pleased with the result. Make your obsessions positive obsessions! If you are young, be aware of consequences of patterns that could affect you down the line. If you are older, you may be thinking of where you will live after retirement or possible health matters that compromise your abilities. Choose housing that makes sense. Small homes communities have never been so fun! DIY mini GrandMother home kits, yes!

Recycling is good. Reuse and repurposing are even better. Renovation including charming vintage panels or glass is lovely. Making places safer, less toxic, with up to date money saving sustainable conveniences makes sense! Homes for the homeless with the programs that go with it are like recycling/healing humans and save money in the long term!

This is a time for research and funding of all kinds. Research for cures of illnesses that have long plagued us. Funding for education to stop all kinds of abuses – sexual, violence, human and animal cruelty, poverty, of our lands. If you are making your will or revising it, consider splitting it. Put some monies toward planetary matters, the rest for your family. Do your part, what you can. Read up on HOW to make change. BE solution oriented. Support those causes.

Traveling will take on a sober note. It may be a profound adventure, soulful, for greater purposes. ‘Chance’ meetings along the way will have importance. A few words can make a major impact. Likely to combine business and exploration. You may be attracted to dangerous places…be careful, please. Learn techniques of life that change you. Invest some time in spiritual accord inner traveling. Be away. Take silence or fast. Consult the Oracles.

Jupiter with Pluto in Scorpio and Capricorn is invincible! Recovery is swift, almost miraculous. They rarely get sick no matter what the conditions. Businesses and financial dealings are super successful. Scripts and writing are charismatic, stunners! Romantic relationships are remarkably long-lived. Their planetary work makes a lasting difference. They have tenacity!

Sustainability will be a key word in all our lives. Jupiter sees the whole picture above ground; Scorpio sees the roots. Pluto in Capricorn specializes in condensing, more for less, getting the most out of it, and long term use! That can be time, materials, decreasing your bills, and the ability to keep a good system going in a good way. Global warming and weathers, environmental changes will be factored in. Locales where you work or live will be more important than ever. [See your astrologer for AstroLocality choices.]

Capricorn 2017 – 2018 Celestial HighLights 


Capricorn, Beyond Amazing!

Capricorn Bukkane Goats Capra Hircus Ireland

Fantastic wild Bukkane Goats (Capra Hircus), at the Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, Ireland. Not native to Ireland, these animals were once domesticated, but over the hundreds of years since their introduction have established themselves as a wild population.

“Very naughty goats [not the ones above].” The [Exmoor UK] villagers have tried shooting and poisoning. They have paid for modified cattle grids and ambitious mass relocations. Still their washing lines are raided, their cricket greens are destroyed. Now they are trying contraceptives!

Worldwide, domestic goats are well loved and a nuisance at times! Wild or domestic, they are utterly amazing! They have strength beyond comprehension. Unbelievable surefootedness. Their tenacity knows no bounds. They are used as pack animals because they survive well in remote isolated places. Smart and clever beyond words. They utilize rocky harsh sparse spaces others couldn’t begin to. Wherever they are they find food, anything and everything. Intrepid.

You know, you will never really domesticate your Capricorn. There is an untamable Spirit that shows through no matter how proper, sometime stuffy, seemingly obedient they are. There is always a tiny twinkle of perversity that often pays off when they find a better way no one expected! They are supreme scientists and researchers. They make do with little and even that is done potently, no moment or material wasted. Ultimate sustainability experts that reuse everything. They have endurance that defies natural law.

And don’t mess with them too much. Even human goats have those horns, a hard head to butt with and butt back with. They can come after you or defend you. If they defend you, you have a true champion, otherwise evacuate now, LOL! Since that strength is there, they may be difficult to reason with at times. They can just get away with it because they are so smart otherwise. They are valued and respected in most regards, and the rest is allowed. Happens both in relationships and business. So if you are the Cappie, be aware of this foible and kindly listen and moderate your behavior as makes sense.

Human goats need to watch their bones and skin and hair and nails and teeth. But especially their knees. Clearly an uphill fight is no problem in your mind. With those knees, concentrated strength and agility, scaling the heights is a natural. Mountainous terrain, snow and ice or local business challenges, accruing professional degrees, being the CEO are no problem. Sometimes though Capricorns need to reasonably take the soft side – surrender, be humble, ask for help, get down to the same level as children and shorter beings. Some things just can’t be ordered to happen. Your knees are your sacred barometer.

Capricorns are generally stronger as they get older. They pay keen attention as they move through life. Experience and wisdom play important roles. Timing is one of their special talents. They know when to pause, stand completely still, make a move, rest, charge and get it done now and don’t stop until it’s done! They excel at self-control and dedication. They work hard and expect you to also. They are grand mentors and it’s so worth it to work with them. They love you loyal.

Younger and some Caps can be fearful, mainly afraid of what people think. That’s a tough one. Sometimes it just takes some living to get through it. Other times, talk it through with friends, with an experienced other person you trust, a good counselor. Hang out with people who have a good track record and hold strong ethics. Just being in their company shows you how they operate and without realizing it, you will come by some good behavior by simple transference. Be your best natural Self. Failure, mistakes and being wrong are forgivable and can be changed soon as you find out how! You can do it.

Not only do Capricorns build people, but are masters of construction, real estate, and are impressive architects. What they build lasts forever for the least price and the best materials. They are only too aware of hardship and danger. Strong timbers, stonework that won’t fail, insulated glass to reduce living costs. Sustainability makes sense to them. They are at their best fitting the building to the lay of the land and local resources. Some of their lodges, corporate headquarters, temples, are works of art.

Magician or High Priestess, Capricorns can be stumbly funny or ruthless! Sometimes they don’t even know what they are capable of!

You are in good company! David Bowie, Denzel Washington, Stephen Hawking, Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, John Legend, Ellen DeGeneres and so many more! Many have come from nothing and nowhere to somewhere! We are so proud of you all!

Outer Planet Transits with Capricorn 2017 – Jan 2019!

Capricorn Woman Hiking Angels Landing, Zion National Park, Utah

May you enjoy many treks or road trips with superb scenic views! Hiking Angels Landing, Zion National Park, Utah

We are now, since Nov 11, at the third aspect of a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018! Two of those aspects will have a strong focus since they will be traveling closely together several months at a time.

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Capricorn’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 and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see. Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus. Chiron shifts from Pisces to Aries. They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. 
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!.

With the multiple sign changes and 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!

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 18 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with Sun and other factors in Capricorn from 0 to 19 degrees 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 planets in Capricorn. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials so show it. 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! Hang on!

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 cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Capricorns often surprise people with their spirituality. They are the sign of Ceremonial Magic, the Magician. Since they are realists, they often ‘see’ absolutely accurately, psychically. Cap is the composter, Neptune plays their music back to them to get the sound of life. Neptune softens and flows, Capricorn’s abilities refine, whether it is interactions with people, loved ones, or doing business. At some times their responses seem muted, but watch and listen carefully. Good chance it’s important.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In fire sign Aries, the First of everything, Capricorn is sometimes shocked! That could be scared or awaken an inspiring new chance. Sometimes Capricorns forget the zest they once had. Uranus the ChangeMaker loves to see that spark come back to life! One ember will do the job. At times Cappies can feel so all alone, keeping integrity in spite of taunts or scorn. Uranus has a crew of hotshot warriors/warrioresses ready to stand at your side, hold you in a Circle of Light, burn away the dross and raise you up to the next level. At first you aren’t sure about these upstarts, but you will find your way. They are glad they invited you!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Another earth sign, Capricorn, likes common sense and practical. Uranus, though perhaps slowed a bit in Taurus, nevertheless likes change, and Taurus doesn’t give up. They have the horses and the plow, that soil will be turned. This Taurus pace is more comfortable for Capricorn. They have protected principles for centuries, so hold strong, but in the gentle caring face of Taurus they feel more safe to consider additional options. Taurus knows value, Uranus assesses instantly. They see the good in you that is worthy of their support. Uranus in Taurus makes the land fertile, is innovative in sustainable matters. It will make your properties more valuable in the long term. Step up now.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes, Aries initiates. Chiron enters Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune 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! Like with Neptune, Chiron plays Capricorn’s music! Somewhat like Capricorn, Chiron was a loner for a long time, but did amazing work as a healer and teacher. Chiron has natural skills this way and passes them along to Capricorn for personal use, to give to loved ones, and use in business. Marriage could be in the offing.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! During those years, Chiron will be challenging Capricorn to stand up to his full height, no drooping shoulders. Some old ways will be abandoned, Cappies sad for the losses, yet knowing it’s time to try out what’s on the cutting edge. At times they will resist, and thankfully preserve what remains valuable. It will take some dancing to decide when to do which. Chiron in Aries wants to heal our Spirits. Spirit being invisible, it may be a little difficult to prove your point to Capricorn. They want the facts. So go for visible effects, results, to make your point.

builds from 0 to 13 Capricorn now through Jan 2018. 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 make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! In its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 0 to 13 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through 2018! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 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, 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! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Capricorn has no problem with his own planet! Saturn reinforces all that Capricorn stands for. Being the best Father/parent possible, being responsible, known for doing reliable work, keeping commitments realistically, being on time. If Saturn finds shortcomings, Capricorn accepts that, always wanting to be the best he can be. If there are emotional or physical changes that need making, it can be scary to make the changes, what if I fail or what I try doesn’t work? But Caps a worker, so even if it is a small beginning, he does what he can to get started. If the first way doesn’t work, find out more, try another. Do it as you can, a bit at a time if necessary. You may be on your knees now and again, but you can do it! Hats off, kudos! Such courage, so very proud of you.

moves from 15 Scorpio to 19 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, 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.

Capricorn is sextile Scorpio and finds opportunities in all that Scorpio brings! Lucky Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the sign that precedes Capricorn. Jupiter wants to set Capricorn up with big ideas, a plan to match them, a goal that takes them to the top! Education makes a difference. Incorporating ideas from many cultures enhances the whole operation, broadens its scope and success can come from many directions. Capricorn can be skeptical, and Jupiter can sometimes seem runaway, but the ideas are there to be explored. Jupiter and his ideas have excellent longevity. They may not be wholly feasible at once, but Capricorn is great at timing, and can find his way along the chain of command! Yes!

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – double Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Ascendant + 4 planets stellium in Scorpio. See his phenomenal Chart

If your Jupiter is in these degrees, 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 abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Here’s the 2018 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus
Sep  25 Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces
Nov  6  Uranus retrograde back into Aries

Capricorn 2018 New Year Full Wolf SuperMoon


How FIRST can you get?!

Happy New Year! First Full Moon, Wolf Moon, of January and 2018! And it is the closest – and thereby the largest Supermoon of 2018! This Full Moon is the second in a series of three successive full moon SuperMoons occurring on December 3, 2017, January 2 Capricorn/Cancer and Jan 31 Aquarius/Leo, 2018.

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, Neptune is in Pisces his own sign, and with Saturn newly in his own sign Capricorn, we have THREE planets in their own signs on New Year Day! Two of those are outer planets that hold long term meaning. They give us time to absorb, try out the many facets of their expertise in the sign they are in. Cancer is home, family, especially women and children, and our feelings, support for our wellbeing, cycles in our lives. Neptune is the Spiritual Master, maker of music, takes us to sea, heightens our senses. Saturn is the TaskMaster, dedicated to his work, gives financial support, rules Moon’s opposite sign. Traditionally Moon and Saturn, shelter and career, Mother and Father, are united in the cause to make a good way for the children.

The Full Moon lets us into 2018 gently with her exact aspects with Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Moon trines Neptune, each intuitive, each supportive in their own way. Moon sees motion, cycles and rhythms. Generally she operates current time, makes sure we are fed and comforted, sleep well and helps us with daily family interactions. Neptune is more concerned with the greater good of all beings, our Soul, life’s meaning, is an observer of trends and our place in them. Moon serves more locally. Neptune would have us sacrifice and serve globally. They both love art and their sensitivities blend the color beams and meanings until they become one. The strong citizens Cancer grows become citizens that lead our communities.

Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune. Capricorn is the living example of responsibility, Light in action, Love accomplished. Sun Lights the way and cheers our hearts, gives the strength to follow Neptune’s dreams. Capricorns collect the working materials to build what was invisible into a work place that inspires us to make dreams come true. Capricorns are dedicated believers when they ‘see’ the way that makes ultimate good sense. They know how to bring teams to the table, aligning all their talents so perfectly. It’s just a matter of time. Sun carries Neptune’s energy forward, Venus is nearing, so you can bet Neptune’s dream will be full of grace and brings irresistible beauty. Venus will conjunct Sun Jan 8, and Venus and Sun conjunct Pluto Jan 9! There will be a blessed culmination, a grateful ending, the deep wellsprings of a new beginning, Light in places that used to be dark!

Beautiful Grand Trine/Kite in Earth and Water signs! Moon leads the formation, pushing off beyond her usual territory. She is strong in her own sign, spurred by Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio, guided by Neptune in Pisces, also in his own sign! Water signs heal and help. Moon loves her children and ‘knows’ when there is trouble. Scorpio reads his partner and the deep hidden things that need healing in all of us, impurities we carry that impinge on all others that come in contact with us, helps us safely off load and detox. We see more clearly. Pisces helps us tune in to the greater banks of spiritual wisdom, to merge and develop compassion, raise our frequency to a more refined level, global consciousness.

On the daily basis, securing safe quarters, connecting with good schools is important to Cancers. Scorpios secure the funds we need and do tremendous healing that frees us to act on our dreams. Pisces throws mysteries our way to whet our thirst for exploration beyond the average expectations. Of course there is more! We dance at concerts, go to the art museums, maybe church on Sunday, meditate and do yoga. People keep doing fantastic things! Fascinating things seep into us and we change, sometimes without even realizing.

Now, I did say Moon has the lead. But there is a lot of weight on the other side with a four planet stellium in Capricorn, Saturn in power fresh in his own sign! The weight of the whole chart is on that side! Perhaps it’s the whole group leading the way! Capricorn can be like a dozer, pushing through stubborn obstacles! Saturn knows when people are fearful, stuck in their ways, because at one time or another they have been there themselves. They know just how to get them motivated. Respect first by inviting not ordering, dangling carrots next, rewards and payoffs that make a difference. And it doesn’t have to be money! In one spiritual system, Capricorn is the sign of Ceremonial Magic. It is a sacred ritual to care for people this way. Cancer hugs, feeds, cleans up some of the mess as the whole system moves forward.

And I will be radical. Maybe they take turns leading!?

Mercury has some great big ideas in Sagittarius, but square Chiron in Pisces, Chiron isn’t ready for them yet. So keep a file of ideas to be pursued later. Find ways to talk about them that doesn’t overwhelm the more gentle folk. Learn how to drizzle them out, leave a breadcrumb trail until they can catch up, getting them used to the bits and progression of your ideas as they come along. They will be plenty excited when they arrive, thinking they thought those things up themselves! Smile.

The powerful long term background aspect is Jupiter sextile Pluto exact the first time Jan 15, the day before the New Moon! They travel closely together FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14. This aspect is strongly placed in the SuperMoon chart. The Moon trines Mars then Jupiter Jan 1 & 2, then Mars carries the energy until it conjuncts Jupiter Jan 6 and sextiles Pluto Jan 8. Moon, powerful in her own sign Cancer, trine Jupiter in Scorpio could mean incredible support for important causes. Women and children may be leaders in the news and education changes. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! New investments may be offered. Try them out. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

In Scorpio Mars is perhaps a silent partner, but is deeply courageous and terrifically on spot in Scorpio. Moon intuitively calls him to arms in her behalf for all those in danger or need. In Scorpio he can be sinuous, weaving and surfacing then going down for another look, returning with the truth of the matter, discovering how to navigate in treacherous situations. He can plant seeds along the way that dissolve some problems, allow other seeds to grow well in spite of adverse circumstances. With Jupiter, and he and Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, he may not say so, but he will offer hope for survival in a good way. Do your part.

Happy Full Moon and Happy New Year 2018!

First New Moon of 2018!
SIX Planets in Capricorn, Jupiter Sextile Pluto, Mars!

Tuesday Jan 16 at 6:17 PM Pacific, 26 Capricorn 54!

Capricorn Crescent Fairy Wings 2018 New Moon

The day before our Capricorn New Moon Jupiter sextiles Pluto, which could be wealth, super health, the mate of a lifetime! With SIX planets in Capricorn working hard for us – six ways to Sunday, including that Pluto, we will certainly be taking steps in those directions!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, so the link is in sync! Scorpio and Capricorn are pros. Scorpio makes the money that funds Capricorn’s goal! Capricorn uses it precisely, no time wasted, so the money goes further than expected. Good chance the project makes money before it is even finished! Scorpio makes astute relationships, whether personal or business. Capricorn places people well along the way, competently assessing their abilities, leading them to higher places they never knew they could get to. Health improves with happiness, and being in that right place at the right time can make us forget we ever had troubles. Good job!

Jupiter wants to educate, and Scorpio doesn’t spare the depth, perfecting every detail from inside to out! Jupiter sees the long term, so Scorpio opens his eyes below, above and beyond! This inner and outer vision at once opens all kinds of corridors. Old debris is carted away, energy is freed. Jupiter shouts the glory with a mighty song, perhaps not unlike the mischievous opera singer Cecilia Bartoli! Jupiter feels the huge support Scorpio offers with his strength and inner knowing. Scorpio is impassioned by the potential Jupiter sees and knows is within reach! See more

The Moon and Sun union is powerful! Moon goes through all the signs each cycle while the Sun is in that one sign. Moon brings facets of knowledge to Sun’s feet and he fills them with energy with all his Heart, lights them to brilliance! They can be gathered, brought to their full height, give their part wholly. At 26 Capricorn, one sign after the 26 Sagittarius Galactic Center, the insights from last month’s 26 Sagittarius New Moon are being worked into our daily lives.

Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet, starts the SIX planet Capricorn stellium! He sets the tone for integrity, responsibility, the ultimate practicality. He makes us aware of time and age, experience, has respect for wisdom. He is willing to work hard for core values, understands reality and necessity. Mercury had left him just days before, excited to carry the word about him, his principles, inspiring us to work as we can, the best we can, for what we believe in too.

  • Pluto is being sextiled by Jupiter as we have talked about above. Pluto in Capricorn can be pretty cool, even frozen, and perhaps he is glad to be warmed by optimistic Jupiter (Sagittarius’s planet) and the molten flow of his own sign, Scorpio’s underworld lava! Capricorn is looking at that mountaintop, but Pluto knows what lies below is the support the mountain needs. Hidden things, a mistaken premise, a weak link, can wreak havoc that may or may not be fixable. Better to prevent. Pluto was the God of the underworld. Listen to him, he’s seen it all.
  • Moon and Sun and Venus come next. Moon and Sun are only four degrees from the end of Capricorn. Sun has been in Cap 26 days now, knows what’s up and what is needed to complete the build. Moon in Capricorn brings her intuitive clarity, is Priestess of high womanhood, shepherds women and youngers to fulfill their missions. She and they take charge of what Sun can’t. Moon and Sun are making things whole – marrying male and female archetypes, allying young and old. Sun literally forges into new territory, higher dimensions, holds the Light in the darkest time of year. He mentors the way home.
  • At 26 degrees Moon and Sun are leaving Mars, Uranus and Chiron aspects behind, but carrying the knowledge forward. Mars inspires and has the courage to lead and act now! Uranus in Aries frees us from challenging old concepts, taildraggers, and teaches us how to unite disparate forces for common goals. Chiron asks for compassion, a stillness that we may see, for us to heal our addictions, to dream and believe. One day at a time. But Mars is right in with Uranus, then Chiron! 24, 24 and 25 degrees! Read on below….
  • Venus is mature in Capricorn, shifts out of Capricorn into Aquarius the next day. Moon catches up with her only 4 hours later, before she leaves. The two feminine planets merge to share caring and beauty, their special kind. There is a sweetness not always typical of Capricorn, and reality checks to keep them from falling for a wish rather than what is true. They know it is important to know that we humans are growing and rather than being perfect, it is the strength and quality of the striving that brings change and reward. They admire a working partner, gauge their choices by results.
  • The Sun doesn’t catch up with Venus until many signs later, Oct 26.

Mars has been traveling close with Jupiter since Dec 23, conjuncted Jupiter Jan 6. It has recently gained the foresight and farsightedness of Jupiter’s seeing, that Jupiter’s plans and picks stem from. And Jupiter’s optimism as well! Jupiter navigates successfully no matter what sign he is in! Though Mars is tremendously focused in Scorpio, even obsessed, there is still a broadening of attention, scanning for openings, quick ninja leaps through the eye of the needle!

Now at 24 Scorpio, Mars inconjunct Uranus at 24 Aries is a strange and amazing phenomenon. Things are off kilter and perfectly so. Mars is agile and enjoys the challenge! Mars is sure in Scorpio, but Uranus is swiftly unpredictable in Mars’s sign Aries! There is kinship, but it will not be a steady relationship. It may be long term, but random and erratic. It loosens the fibers of Mars in Scorpio and Mars surprises Uranus by magically appearing when no others could keep up! Mars may grab Uranus by the tail and hold him accountable – for a few moments, LOL!

Mars trines Chiron in Pisces. Chiron may hobble along at times, but Mars adroitly hurries him along, knowing Chiron likely has more ability than the old master lets on. Healing techniques and subtle business skills are shared. They can accomplish quite amazing feats together before others realize what has happened!

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Procyon in Canis Minor, the Puppy, is opposite our New Moon. Beware of growls, bites and slurpy kisses – maybe a hot temper, some violence! You have to know sequences to understand more of the meaning of stars. Bernadette Brady says: Procyon is the star that rises before the great Sirius, the Dog Star, the Shining One. It symbolizes rapid success but short-lived opportunities, for its bright rising light is quickly outshone by the rising of Sirius. Do business quickly, harvest your gains, move on! Opposite the New Moon may make you quite aware of this phenomena, especially if it triggers factors in your chart at 26.

Algol is at 26 Taurus trine the New Moon. Trines are good; Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus, you may have some personal insights. The head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Depending on who and when someone is talking, Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! As an earth sign, Capricorn is feminine though Saturnian, sometimes ruthless in business, could be an ardent artist leaving a valuable legacy of astonishing quantity! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. Likely the Capricorn stellium in trine, astrology’s best aspect, will mitigate the dark side. Capricorns are generally not afraid of the dark.

This New Moon is a worthy leader of 2018’s New Moons! It holds the successful Jupiter sextile Pluto energy. SIX Planets in Capricorn gets the job done!!! Algol will ramp things up, surreptitiously or very up front! Blessed be, carry on!
