Gemini 2017 Celestial HighLights

Gemini Spreads the Light through the Word!

Happy Birthdays, Geminis!

Gemini rising Frenchman Marcel Marceau was perhaps the greatest mime, the Master of Face, performed professionally worldwide for over 60 years. He let his body talk, referring to mime as the "art of silence." 

Gemini rising Frenchman Marcel Marceau was perhaps the greatest mime, the Master of Face, performed professionally worldwide for over 60 years. He let his body talk, referring to mime as the “art of silence.”

An actor is a mime/mimic who talks! Silent film comedians like Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton learned the craft of mime in the theatre, but through film, they have had a profound influence on mimes working in live theatre decades after their deaths. Indeed, Chaplin may be the best-documented mime in history. He had Neptune conjunct Pluto in Gemini.

Lucille Ball was 100% expression! If her words didn’t get you, her expressions did! As one person said ‘She was naturally gifted with comic timing and fearless self expression.’ She had no problem to mime Charlie Chaplin miming! Mercury, the Gemini planet, grand trined her Moon in Capricorn/Mars in Taurus. Mercury quintiled, 71 degrees – 1/5 of a circle, her Pluto in GEMINI! She was truly gifted in communications, charismatic!

Robin Williams mimed in New York City’s Central Park, and while studying at Juilliard. He worked outside The Museum of Modern Art for some extra cash! He could say so much without saying a word! What an expressive human being! His Mercury, the planet of Gemini was exactly at the apex of his chart.

Mimic, mime, is a form of twinism.

As I have scanned through some other famous mimes, Pisces and Scorpio and their planets Neptune and Pluto come up strongly. Pisces/Neptune is the ability to flow, become one with another. Just like the Pisces fishes are bound as one, reflecting each other, they are like the twins of Gemini bound in their genetics. They are the ultimate empath signs, the first and last mutable signs. Scorpio/Pluto have the utmost capacity for silence, ninjas. Their silence removes a distracting layer. Rather than hearing, we are reduced to and focused only on seeing. It intensifies that connection. They can instantly cut to the core, see us deep. Though they are not speaking, they have our full attention, magical hypnotism!

Blessings to all who show us your face that we may see ours!

Gemini 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter exactly on June 3 at 6:44 PM Pacific! It will be beautiful that evening! See them and Corvus, the Crow, just below them.

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter exactly on June 3 at 6:44 PM Pacific! It will be beautiful that evening! See them and Corvus, the Crow, just below them.

Bruce McClure at EarthSky says ‘the waning gibbous moon passes 2o north of the planet Jupiter, the brightest starlike object in the evening sky. What a sight! The moon and Jupiter pop out first thing at dusk, and they’ll be fun to spot in the darkening sky. A bright star nearby, Spica in the constellation Virgo, will come into view to the east of the moon and Jupiter as night deepens.

There’s no way to mistake Spica for Jupiter – or vice versa. Jupiter is by far the brighter object. That’s not to say that Jupiter is the more luminous of these two celestial lights. It’s not. Jupiter, being a relatively close planet, shines because it reflects the light of the sun.

Spica is a distant star, or actually two stars in one. Spica, which shines by its own light, is vastly more intrinsically luminous than Jupiter. It’s just much, much farther away. If Spica were at the sun’s distance from Earth, it’d visually be 1,900 times brighter than our sun. Or, another way of putting it, the sun at Spica’s distance of 250 light-years would appear 1/1,900th as bright as Spica. You’d definitely need an optical aid to see our sun this far away.

By Sunday night, June 4, you’ll see the moon has moved closer to Spica on the sky’s dome.’

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

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

Gemini 2017 TimeLine!

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

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. Taurus has the last three of this reverse set, the April 30 Saturn square Chiron, and the last two back to back, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune station May 17 to July 4, and Saturn trine Uranus! The final set of six starts July 4 in forward order, finishing 11/11!

Gemini 2017 has no new outer planet aspect combinations. Rather, in the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune station, for 48 days, we stay in contemplation, a continuous exploration of myths and miracles! We take steps off the main course, venturing into the relativity of causation – how we were created, how we ourselves are the cause of our future. Walking through the invisible veils that once held us, becomes a way of life. We are always fresh, know the perfect vantage point for clear vision.

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Gemini 2017 –  June 2018!

Samsung Galaxy X will have a foldable technology as edge technology is finished now. It will be the most exciting smartphone for 2017.

Samsung Galaxy X will have foldable technology – The latest rumors suggest we might see a Galaxy X prototype this year, but may not see the final phone until 2019.

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

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! They are intrigued by this Gemini with all their questions and ideas. Gemini can be impressively intelligent, quick, fearless and clever. In league with Pluto, they can spot flaws in the system. Gemini is ideal for darting in for investigative research or reporting. Give them a wide range or they will be off to more interesting projects.

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Neptune blurs and blends while Gemini makes a clean sharp focus, brightens the colors! They both use images, Neptune adds the music. What Gemini might miss with his visual ability and fast thinking, Neptune will relax to a deeper keen listening, an empathic talent, that finds subsurface or more remote knowledge. Gemini might feel out to sea, but it’s only another facet of mind to experiment with.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Gemini is delighted by this impetuous wild card player! They have met their match and then some! No boredom with this combination! Fire and electricity make the world go around, and Gemini is collecting mega data to feed the Team! The Team helps them stand back to see the great panorama of humanity before them, to see collective shifts right before their eyes! Gemini’s work has taken on so much more meaning! Extraordinary friendships will kindle amazing new interests.

When Uranus gets into Taurus it’s going to be quite different for you Geminis. There will be a slowing, a stabilizing. Ideas will be more solid, strengthened. Weak spots will be more finely calibrated, balanced, recharged. Your life may seem less complicated and maybe that brings you relaxation, time to observe what has become and needs steady tending. Since you were part creator, you won’t mind. It’s a time to treasure what you have done. Tai Chi might become part of your life, or you find a superb acupuncturist! Mind and fingers and touch. A loyal unity. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Chiron sees Gemini is a quick learner, and in Pisces, Chiron knows what to offer when. Gemini has a voluble, versatile, distractible mind. You have to speak quickly and be in sync, and it’s good if it’s something your Gemini hasn’t heard before! Be ready to let then know succinctly why it is important, and have your next points ready to go in a sequence that makes sense. That can be a little difficult if Pisces is in the dreamy mode, or a piece of cake to Pisces the ultimate sign of making intuitive insightful adjustments, mind melding! Healing may occur for Geminis when Chiron sees errors in the way their mind works, patterns of thinking that don’t work, or their mind gets so busy they miss the big picture or have a hard time listening. That could be difficult for both of you at first, but you Geminis take it easy. It can be to your great advantage to develop more communications skills.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries will be more at Gemini’s pace and Gemini loves fresh and bright! Geminis may find themselves writing inspiring health articles, about new business ventures or successful athletes and heroes, riding their bike to work!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through June 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017!

In Sagittarius Saturn is opposite Gemini. You may find your travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Travelers may try to take over, or you may sell your business for a profit. Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn has some realistic proposals that may help you focus and save time. The plans look well founded. Time and costs need working out. Perhaps there’s a need to reign in diversifying for awhile. Instead, give the most attention to your best seller, concentrate on what gives the best return per expenses. Reach across the table for the excellent advice of mentors. Gather your data for publishing later. See an editor and line up an attorney who specializes in what you do!

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

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Gemini businesses may be any kinds of communications, consulting – think tanks, working with your hands, medical specialties involving the lungs/airways/nose – shoulders, looking younger! Saturn will want adjustments – more precision, science based techniques, attention to critical timing, sometimes working with elders, laws. Fathers and bosses likely will make more demands, you feel your age. Saturn offers tips for more efficiency, production increases! Saturn will be in Capricorn until Dec 2020.

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

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

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Gemini another air sign, loves greeting all the people, is excited about all kinds of art, wants to make a portfolio! Poetry, news blogs, marketing advertising are encouraged by Jupiter who wants to get the word out as far as possible, recruit new links, have many stations! Gemini, a diversity specialist, is quite willing to be a go between between go betweens! Jupiter sees a greater picture, and Libra is quite worldly compared to Gemini of siblings and neighbors, so the new dimension is to see the brothers and sisters of the world! As twins, they are psychic, quick to pick up on how we are more alike than different! There will be lots of questions with new answers!

Jupiter in Scorpio tweaks Gemini from off center opposite. Jupiter still wants all those communications, education/teaching type things to come true. In Scorpio the emphasis becomes funding, healing, deeper relationships. Gemini may be thrown off stride as requests are make to back up what they say, record their source, meet deadlines. Jupiter may ask for more material, and Scorpio can be extreme, intense, even asking for a journalistic approach that could have dangerous consequences. Gemini is the sign of breathing, and may not take that job! Jupiter wants total well being, and Scorpio is ever the healer. If you have been neglecting your state of mind, now might be the perfect time to see the therapist. Clean up is good. Someone may come along who loves you more than you ever knew was possible. If Gemini feels loved too much, they feel the loss of a substantial amount of their freedom, they may be blessed to see how love can be, but pass on this particular style.

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

Gemini Spreads the Light through the Word!

Gemini Planets Hawaiian Tapestry Jay Wilson

Gemini is an intricate sign of many dimensions, natural geometry, a galaxy of colors, the ultimate mindfulness, magical intelligence! Gemini’s are not just twins, they are the Magicians of Diversity! Mimic and mime, the multiplicity of becoming one with another, and another and another. Shifting quicksilver sands, breezes wafting an effervescent mind. They are not just male or female, but androgynous. They are often ambidextrous. Because their approach to life is so unusual, they make surprising connections in fractions of a second! They ride the kaleidoscope of life!

Their treasure of communication lights our hearts! It can be through speaking and listening. It can be a kind touch of healing – hugs or holding hands a transference of pure energy. It can be a shared breath. A common thought when we each say the same thing at the same time. Can you imagine being a twin? What it would be like seeing your own face looking back at you? What if you were suddenly a twin, right now?! Would it be mimic and mime, or a automatically genuine rapport beyond words? How would it feel to see things mirrored about yourself that you might not like? What if you both fall in love with the same person?

Supreme communication can be a blessing, a communion. Admiration, appreciation. Reverence. A swearing in, a diploma on parchment. A book that expresses feelings so real we forget we are reading because we become one with it, sharing another Soul’s gift of perception. Awe at the recognition of beauty – art treasures, the unbearable beauty of a baby, another person, a pet, their givingness. Amazement that takes our breath away! A proposal, commitment of marriage or devotion.

Gemini uses the daily breath to wish each other well, sharing getting off to work and school. Don’t forget your lunch, Honey, see you later. With couples it is the ‘I love you’ that makes a difference in our hearts.

Gemini holds the voice of the sacred prayer for safety, good health and healing. It is the words through the Dream Catcher that carry our hopes on the breezes of Spirit. It’s the call to attention to the important things in life, always and everywhere. Gemini gathers the voices and gains a higher perspective. Many voices in consensus have greater power through unity.

Gemini spreads the Light through the word. It goes out across the world and back again enriched and transformed. It shares the goodness we find. Chapter by chapter it tells our story. Information is the sacred tapestry, woven by the village, all connected. It represents and links the cultures of all beings, Humanity.

Gemini spreads the Light through the word. It’s not what you say, but how and when you say it. It’s a Gift we give each other. Whether you need to tell someone something good about them, or stand kindly for the Truth, never neglect to speak your heart in a good way. Make that phone call.

Deep breath. Be still. Listen with your heart….

The lyrics of the opening verse of ‘Tapestry’ by Carole King. Ms King has Jupiter in Gemini and Gemini’s planet Mercury in the same degree as her Sun!

My life has been a tapestry
Of rich and royal hue;
An everlasting vision
Of the ever-changing view;
A wond’rous woven magic
In bits of blue and gold;
A tapestry to feel and see;
Impossible to hold.

Jupiter in Libra Travel Wedding Gown Plane Blue
Traveling with your Wedding Dress?! ~ Call the airline ahead of time….

August 24 Note: ONLY 16 days of Virgo left. Organize, Tone up your skills, get things done, clean up, heal your mind and body, be ready to relate! Jupiter goes through the signs every 12 years, so this is it for Virgo, Libra to begin shortly!

This Sign change, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, occur between two VIRGO eclipses! Sep 1 Solar ECLIPSE, New Moon is first, then the Sep 16 Lunar ECLIPSE, Full Harvest Moon! All this is during the Virgo Mercury Retrograde Aug 30 to Sep 21! The Jupiter Sign change is followed by the Sep 22 Sun’s sign change into Libra, Fall Equinox! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter, then at 2 Libra 49, a very lucky combination! And Mars will be conjunct the Galactic Center, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Virgo‘s exceptional craftsmanship has attracted the notice of Libra’s who appreciate the finest art! In Libra, a worthy long term partnership may be formed. Quality is a gift in itself, and may assure the intrinsic value of the gift offered. Jupiter may have worked long and traveled far to arrive at this special time and meet YOU!

Jupiter is known to be casual, a seasoned traveler able to do well with the useful minimum. In Virgo we may have had budgets, healers and horses. Libra will bring well groomed poodles and spending some of that money! Libra enjoys sociality and elegance, from tux at the ballet to exquisite gowns at the symphony. The fine art gallery or the local art show are on their agenda. Jupiter loves a good story, so invite them to play the part to maximize the benefits! This combination makes for fundraising like you had only dreamed of!

Jupiter is playful, so expect some jokes and joviality, maybe a few bets, along the sidelines. Maybe that is just the icebreaker needed, a little friendly competition to start the juices flowing. There will likely be a faux pas once in awhile, but usually they are forgiven. We are all human. They meant well, and surprisingly things work out great!

Libra is so courteous and tactful. Jupiter is no fool, so can see the value in establishing well balanced relationships with respect and kindly words. With Jupiter’s confidence and friendliness with people from many lands, and Libra’s cross cultural camaraderie at the table, they are a hit and the sale is made, the contract negotiated fairly, a long term alliance celebrated!

Jupiter has many interests, some of them foreign. In Libra, expect to see the world. Jupiter loves to teach; Libra can gather the Souls, anthropology in action. Jupiter can publish; Libra finesses the script perfectly. Jupiter is the Judge; Libra loves the Law and makes great lawyers. Jupiter has perspective, integrity and super Faith and helps Libra hold the line and stick with the long term meaningful decision. Libra helps Jupiter see both sides before leaping to assumptions! They are a good team.

Libra is good at team sports and peaceful competition. Baseball, relays, synchronized. Dance, ballet, Tai chi, balance. Jupiter enjoys games, being robust, racing, skiing, skating, horseback riding. Make it all an art. Show that big doggie, fine horse! Try some figure skating! Do good things for your figure! Eat less, eat well.

Jupiter is a daytime planet and Libra a daytime but Sunset sign. They love a starlit night with candles and a lovely long view of the Milky Way to keep Jupiter’s happiness. Wish upon a star. If they do things they both love together, a relationship can be formed. Otherwise, this may be a ‘it was fun to have met you’ affair. But you will change. It was memorable and still special. You Libras got more courage and Jupiterians more grace.

Venus is Libra’s planet, so many couples will be in the marrying mood! Businesses associated with marriage and travel will thrive! Yet, Jupiter, the wanderer, isn’t always an easy catch. If not the marrying type, or not ready, they vanish or just don’t show up. If things go well for your relationship, Jupiter IS THE luckiest planet of all! Jupiter in Libra marriages may be truly and exponentially blessed! You two together will be more successful in Love and Business than you ever were separately on your own. If you are already married, get a great special date and time from your astrologer to renew your vows and make it even better! Be sure to check with your astrologer for

  • Basic lasting real compatibility – no maybes or ‘potentially.’
  • Chose a beautiful astrological wedding date and time on that day for happy stability, love and prosperity!
  • Check both your astrolocalities for the most lovely and successful place for your marriage, honeymoon, and where to settle and have your children.

DANCE in Beauty forever and ever.

Jupiter into LIBRA 2016 Astrology Chart

Sep 9, as Jupiter makes the sign change into LIBRA, Jupiter stands alone, in no close degrees to any  other chart factors. It is free to act, or unconnected, yet Libra is a sign of relationships.

In time it stands with the last exact Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, the day after the sign change! That aspect has brought sadness, breakdowns, endings, losses. The square has been strong and close to 10 Sagittarius from April 13 to Oct 31. Paris, Orlando, many floods. At the same time, it has shown us the great needs, many have forgiveness, great kindnesses have been shown, and determination to rebuild and change shows amazing resilience though having suffered greatly.

Mercury is RETROGRADE at 24 Virgo, headed back to 14 Virgo 49. We must rethink many things to find better ways. In Virgo it is new health practices in our lives, business systems, financial management, cleaning up our homes and environment, giving our pets better care. It’s paying attention to when people need our help yet not depleting ourselves in the process. Virgo is a sensible mutable Earth sign, born to make these adjustments with the least fuss. Get your rest, hug your family and carry on.

Mercury is retrograding to opposition Chiron and inconjunct Uranus. This is important because Mercury is keeping the energy of their recent aspects in our mind and the reverse aspects of their previous sets start in December and carry through 2017! See More!

Sun in Virgo is in square with Moon and Mars in Sagittarius. Could be some impatience in the wind, grumpy rumblings. Work versus running away, responsibility versus independence now! Again, mutable signs, so look for the good, make the adjustments, and keep moving. You can clean up messes and fine tune later! Get what you can done, take some time outs for fun!

Venus, Libra’s planet has sextiled Saturn, happily made the job more productive, restored some broken relationships, let others go on their way in their own style. Perhaps an almost marriage. Venus has inconjuncted Neptune, wondering why the wandering, yet has caught glimpses of unmendable broken hearts, dreams that could come true, Spirit that leads us. Libra, an air sign, is the ever so logical lawyer, but sometimes the balance of heart and matter leads to a creative solution that pleases the kindred Soul of all. Venus wants what she wants, but you can’t own people. Her ultimate grace and kindness wins the day.

She will stand trial square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules Scorpio the sign after Libra. Libra prepares the relationships for the deeper dealings of Scorpio, intimacy, financially, death and rebirth, detoxing and healing. Serious matters. Venus can be frivolous with fru frus, cosmetics, flowers, clothes & jewelry. She loves the elite musics and entertainment, ballet, plays. Capricorn brings her up short and says we need to pay the rent and think of possible needs for savings for a rainy day, and fix the roof, you know. Sigh. Ok, so a bit of both? She will pale and die if there are no pretties at all. And Cap can get too gruffy and stuffy for his own good. Grab him and take him out to play! Just might like it after all! :)

Don’t expect to make an easy love match with this square. It will either take time, there are family, financial or career or educational setbacks, a broken engagement, age is an issue. Sometimes it is wiser to let go and find happiness elsewhere another time. It may seem bleak at this time, but is worth the wait. Remember, these aspects will be in different formations with each of your different charts. Check with a couple astrologers to see and confirm your specific personal timing.

Moon and Mars are trine Uranus, so there are some unexpected, yet not surprising either, opportunities soon ahead. Time to try out new adventures! Get outdoors, try a new sport, a new gym! New friends, a different new group is likely to invite you!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017! When the Sun goes into Libra this year, it will conjunct Jupiter at 2 Libra 49! That is a lucky combination, so Libras will get off to a great start and Fall Equinox will be glorious!

Happy Jupiter in Libra to you all! Happy travels, great learning, bountiful relationships!

Mercury Retrograde winding road across the Golden land

9.22.16 Sun into Libra note: These are the matters that will be finishing through Oct 6 with Mercury now Direct/forward in Virgo.

Virgo is so tawny and earthy, the sign after Golden Leo. S curves, like in retrogrades, can have such grace and contour perfectly celestially in our lives, each turn specifically meaningful, intertwined so naturally….

Both Eclipses, Sep 1 and 16, Jupiter’s Sep 9 sign change into Libra, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10 are all during Mercury Rx! There will be a lot of rethinking going on of many matters. Mercury will keep these events in our mind as well as the previous Jupiter-Chiron-Uranus sets, and the three Mercury trines with Pluto!

The prep, perusal and anticipation phase started Aug 10. Mercury retrogrades Aug 30 at 29 Virgo 4. 29 is the last degree of a sign, considered a critical degree as it holds the last moments before the threshold into the next sign. It is in maturity, happy, so done, excited and a little scared sometimes too! In this case we can get a look but don’t get to step onto Libra ground, yet. Mercury returns to mid Virgo, 14 Virgo 49, reorganizing. Kinks are getting straightened out. Unfinished business is tended. More healing happens. We get cleaner and lighter as no longer needed goods are given away or sold, transformed to current purpose.

At each turn point, Aug 30 and when it turns forward Sep 21, focus is held for about an 8 day period. Projects are refined, ideas are absorbed and retained. Not perhaps in their entirety, but the crucial bits are held. The sand of the hour glass drizzles silently, into a slightly new mix. Time, though passing, stands still. It can seem perverse or magical, maybe a tad of both, depending on your mindset. Let yourself be the observer, be one with it, be patient and grateful. There is an essence, that is truly pure, that is being revealed.


Mercury three times at Jupiter opposition Chiron, inconjunct Uranus points of Aug 12, 13
  • Mercury keeps us thinking of Jupiter in Virgo’s course corrections, its inconjunct Uranus, and additional offerings of healing expertise to Chiron, increasing Chiron’s repertoire. Mercury will sniff about, question, drop hints, dialogue its way along and around, let information flow and filter into the crevices of opportunity it finds. The first scan, is Aug 19, less than a week fresh from Jupiter’s two aspects, and this only one day after the Full Grain Moon spanning Leo/Aquarius! The ideas Jupiter stirred are expanded, having more reach now than thought possible. Stretch for it!
  • Mercury transits are about a 4 day affair, 3 before, 1 after, unless it is in station, holding the point longer, or unless you are more, more sensitive. Then it’s the time it is for you.
  • The second contact, is September 9, the very day Jupiter changes signs, enters Libra for the first time since 12 years ago! The importance of Jupiter’s aspects, Jupiter then in Virgo, sharing across the table with co-healer teacher, spirit traveler Chiron, is fully in mind as Jupiter’s energy is carried over the threshold from super service Virgo to sharing and pairing Libra! How we serve each other, our dearest loved ones, how we make each other’s day better makes the difference between heartbreak and that 40th anniversary! Business partnerships flourish as we each bring our marvelous talents to the table. Jupiter’s inconjunct Uranus, consideration of friendships and how we can all work together in service to our world, the greater community, brings change that awakens some, gives many a ‘home,’ sets us free together. Nice and gentile Libra is not to be underestimated! They are diplomats, negotiators and peacemakers, but also rights fighters par excellence! Law is their business. Be careful about your business, have a good staff and team available. A good lawyer is a true asset.
  • October 3 is Mercury’s last connection. The Moon will be in Scorpio that day conjuncting Venus. Take some sweet time with someone you love. Protect your privacy and be sure your security measures are in place.

*Another threesome this Rx is Mercury trine Pluto, even more powerful because Mercury stations with Pluto when it turns direct! Mercury trined Pluto Aug 10, the very beginning day of its three part cycle – direct, retrograde, direct.  When Mercury turns directions it is ‘still’ for an 8 day period, 4 days before, 4 days after. That is a time of great focus, concentration, being instilled with the principles of that time. Mercury trines Pluto the second time Sep 20, turns direct/forward the 21st, Sun goes into Libra the 22nd, and trines Pluto the third time Sep 23, all right in that 8 day station from Sep 18 to 25! Mercury queries Pluto who doesn’t give up his secrets easily. Mercury is generally more inquisitive than wanting to use things against you, but still, there needs to be some degree of trust and possibly confidentiality before certain things are shared. The trine is often more successful. So it you want to learn a deeper way of seeing and knowing, get closer, give it a try. Pluto cleans things up and some of those answers given may not immediately make you happy, but will certainly change your life. Sexuality, intimacy, money, cleansing, death, healing & rebirth are Pluto fortes. See it in the Sep 16 Eclipse!

Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, the other is Gemini. Gemini glories in a brilliant array of  ideas! Virgo wants to put them to work. Both are more of mind, earthy Virgo is more of matter. It’s not just ideas, but things, the results that ideas make. Virgo crafts them into a working system. It hones the edges. It puzzles them about until there is a wonderful fit! Virgos make earth crafts especially ones of wood, like cabinetry, wooden ship building, custom homes, wood carvings. Their amazing attention to detail wins awards. They want quality and durability, plus sustainability. Get yourself ready to be flexible. Old routines will be challenged.

Virgo performs countless services, from the saving lives nurse, to washing dishes housekeeper, the accountant who saves your bacon! Some of them franchise, others would never dream of delegating, they personally ARE the business. Those remarkable beings will change your diet, and you will let them! They study every facet and know all the details. Impressive. So when Mercury is retrograde they may go a bit crazy as things are thrown up in the air topsy turvy. Don’t worry. Give them appropriate time for the Rx to settle and they will have a better way of production than ever! If you are a service provider, you may be astonished at your clients’ new requests. Roll with it best you can and have them sign and date any changes of the original agreement.

Mercury rules paperwork, and Lord knows Virgo does plenty of that! Mercury Rx is a classic time to put off signing papers. Wait if possible. Get receipts for returns, warranties. This may be time to look and test equipment for your business, but, again, wait, especially if it means an entire system overhaul or an expensive item. Since Virgo rules health care, wait to get elective surgery for yourself or pets. Career shifts during the Rx likely won’t turn out as expected, and it’s better to wait to hire if possible. Be ready to spend plenty if you go for a renovation or restoration during Rx. If this Rx doesn’t activate your chart or you have super good aspects during the Rx you can chance it, but as my tax Daddy told me, never chance more than you can pay for!

Virgos are keen mentors, love doing on the job training, are fine tutors. They write the books and manuals! Going to or sending your kids to a specialty or technical school of a Virgo kind is ace! You, they, will come away with profound life skills as well as a fine talent that will be admired and appreciated by many, make you a contributing community member. But don’t be surprised if you change your focus during Rx!

Mercury finishes its three part cycle October 6. As it goes forward from Sep 21, put on the finishing touches. Make final corrections. Go over from front to back, beginning to end, with a fine tooth comb. One of the skills of a good caring person is knowing when to let it be. Good enough. And some things just have to be taken to the Nth degree! After all, it does have your name on it!

2016 is the year of Earth retrogrades. Common sense. Getting things done that are the foundations of our lives. Taurus is our body, being centered and well grounded, strong and kind. This second Rx, in Virgo, is taking care of our body and each other, developing life skills and craftsmanship. Capricorn takes that healthy body to the top of the mountain, is a Father, has a successful career, ages well!

Blessed be, stay so very true!

New Moon, Annular Solar Eclipse, aka Ring of Fire!  – Jupiter Virgo/Libra, Saturn T Square, Three Eclipses!

Thursday September 1, 2:03 AM Pacific at 9 Virgo 21, visible in Africa

New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse Ring of Fire Africa Giraffe Sep 1 2016

It’s fall Eclipse Season! New Moon eclipses are Sun and Moon together, Moon backlighted by Sun! This will be a beautiful annular eclipse, ‘…well-placed observers in Mozambique get to see the Moon’s disk completely silhouetted by sunlight for 186 seconds!’ Webcam time for those of us not in Africa.

Both Virgo time Eclipses frame Jupiter’s sign change from Virgo to Libra Sep 9, the only sign change of 2016! With sign changes, there is the finishing, graduation of one sign, a foundation built for the next sign, the new beginning. With New Moons there is the ending/finishing of the lunar cycle, founding the newly beginning next cycle, another rite of passage. This last lunar event while Jupiter is still in Virgo, collects, charges our energy to complete Jupiter’s intention and good works in Virgo. We are grounding and anchoring the foundation for Jupiter’s new beginning, bringing powerful Virgo skills to the table for partnering in Libra. There is a note of Purity with both Sun and Moon in Virgo. Moon is potently charged with Sun’s Virgo Light. Moon, so closer to Earth and us, transmorphs this energy to us using her full nurturing powers to hold it, love it, grow it, teach it, keep it safe until it can stand on its own. Moon makes us feel it, not just define and categorize, but to sincerely tap it to serve and do our best, keep it’s integrity in a loving way.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces’s finishing aspect is Sep 10 at 20 Sag, the day after Jupiter enters Libra! It is a background aspect that has been running since Dec 23, 2014. In 2016, it ran from April 13, continues through Oct 31. It has brought its share of sorrows and broken dreams as well as letting go of things no longer needed in our lives. Many are starting all over again, humbly, wiser, lighter, cleaner. Saturn is the Builder, often surviving and persevering beyond the odds. Neptune’s fears are overcome, dreams may be wakened from their sleep even long after hope has been lost. Never give up!

The New Moon Eclipse is one degree making this Square come alive, making it what we astrologers call a T Square! There will be no forgetting or ignoring! See the red lines in the chart forming the triangle? Saturn is at the point, so it is in the proactive position and like an antenna scanning! It is sensitive to requested responsibilities, though it’s thoughtful whether it wants to take on more or pass it to someone else. It is aware of the details from Virgo being pressed upon it that will make the project more costly but likely worth it. With FOUR planets in Virgo likely some ideas are going to get through, though temporarily others will come to an abrupt halt! No amount of begging to be heard will work. Wait and try again later. Neptune is saying it’s not ALL about money, make it magical too! Saturn knows time is of the essence and neglect of key points can’t happen, so is letting people know what is needed and by when! Getting just the right balance of factors is going to be a challenge, but moving the puzzle pieces will reveal the right fit. Guard against overwork; get rest and light exercise.

Moon and Sun also square Mars that has just passed Saturn. There have been and will be kinks in the conduit! Here are the sequences in the T Square. Expect delays as Moon squares Saturn at 3:25 AM Pacific. While many are sleeping, early risers on the eastern seaboard might be late to work. Opposite Neptune 4:33 AM Pacific, they can’t find the coffee, the kids might get lost in a fog. Square Mars 11:39 AM Pacific tempers might be short, there is little time, could overdo exercise, sex wasn’t worth it. Sun squares Saturn 8:22 PM Pacific. Hasn’t been fun for a good 3 – 5 days. Blamed, shamed, bullied and bummed. Too much to do, too little time. Next it is opposite Neptune 9:38 AM Pacific on Sep 2. Who am I? Should I give up or go for it? Why me? Sun travels closely in square with Mars until the exact aspect the 13th, after Jupiter enters Libra, after Saturn squares Neptune. Frustration has been building; Libra may help resolve differences and unfairness. There may be challenges and faceoffs taken personally. Saturn may break patterns of denial, forgiveness and understanding on both parts, and of yourself, may save the day. If necessary, walk away. Wait for things to settle. If several other factors are lucky in your chart is could be an unexpectedly very productive time!

Moon and Sun are trine, flowing with Pluto in Capricorn. Besides the potential of deep personal change and empowering your relationships, depending on your chart, positive action can bring amazing weath! Moon makes the trine 12:59 PM Pacific the same day. Sun makes the trine Sep 6 at 10:17 PM Pacific. Stop to take time to tune in on Eclipse day, at the time of the eclipse if possible, 2:03 AM Pacific, and at the Moon’s trine. See if you feel it’s your time and what to do about it, what your next step is. Do some consulting, or follow your intuition through the 6th, even the 7th. Don’t invest your life savings, test with a sum you feel comfortable with. You can always add more later. See a couple astrologers. These dates are in the last days of Jupiter in Virgo, so best choices will have a Virgo flavor. Services, animal and health industries, earth industries, investments. Another strategy would be to pre invest in Jupiter Libra businesses before prices go up or start or get jobs in Libra businesses. Travel, social, anthropology, intercultural exchange, imports, rights, law, politics. Soon as Jupiter goes into Libra some of those businesses will noticeably increase in value. Be ready to flow with the sign changes. Jupiter goes into Scorpio Oct 10, 2017.

There will be not one, but three eclipses three days in a row! First is our SOLAR ECLIPSE New Moon. Then there are two mini eclipses, also called, occultations. The day after the Solar Eclipse, Moon conjuncts Mercury Retrograde 3 PM and occults Jupiter 13 minutes later at 3:13 PM Pacific, Mercury conjuncts  All at 28 Virgo! Moon occults Venus 12 hours later on Saturday 4:03 AM Pacific at 5 Libra! Very good chance one of these three eclipses activates your chart! With all Mini Moon eclipses, the planets are lined up in a straight shot! They are not just passing by each other, but are also at the same elevation! Moon is amplifier, translator, blends with the energy of the further planet.

  • Conjunct, with Mercury of conscious intelligence, Moon in Virgo, one of Mercury’s signs, is in happy accord. Ideas become not just logical, but felt. Their worth and value become a part of us at a more instinctive, personal and primordial level.
  • Moon amplifies Jupiter while Jupiter is in its last 7 days in Virgo. It amplifies Jupiter’s mature accumulated vital information, the summary version of what Jupiter has been transmitting this last year. Specially tune in for important knowledge. Jupiter is always planning ahead, looking to the future, adjusting where and how to get there. Moon is feminine and balances Jupiter’s gusto with the daily possibilities that can realistically be accomplished. Moon softens the logic to a nurturing ambience – less demands, more working together as a human family.
  • Mercury Retrograde with Jupiter can be endlessly chatty reconsidering the past few days since they were together before on Aug 22. What brainstorming! They have been a close 3 degrees and less since Aug 17. Since Aug 26 they will holding Mercury’s 8 day Station together until Sep 2, the day after our Eclipse! Stations are a time of intense focus, concentration, potent absorption, instilling important anchor points. Mercury Rx conjuncts Jupiter the second time Sep 2 at 10:18 AM Pacific! Gleaning the best ideas will be super rewarding! Mercury gathers the data, sees the purpose, given the big picture, plants the idea seeds in all the right places! If you are a writer, reserve as many of these days as possible to write, write, write! What stories, what how tos! FUN and funny to boot!
    Venus conjuncts Jupiter Aug 27
    , Mercury conjuncts Venus Aug 28, Venus leaves Virgo and enters one of its own signs, Libra, Aug 29. Mercury retrogrades Aug 30. Mercury conjuncts Jupiter Sep 2 after the Sep 1 Eclipse. Moon occults Jupiter the same day, and Venus the next! What an intricate sequence! Venus leaves Mercury and Jupiter behind, so it is up to Mercury and Jupiter to get the word together while Venus paves the way for the social connections that will be interested in what Mercury and Jupiter have to offer. All this before Jupiter enters Libra too! Preparation is crucial. Truth, love and beauty, long term plans are under consideration. The primary dance is with Jupiter. Plans need revamping. What is on your mind is reconsidered from many vantage points and deepened in context of the New Moon Eclipse.
  • As Jupiter changes from Virgo to Libra, so do Venus and the Moon! Venus made the switch Aug 29, the Moon does following the Eclipse, preparing the way! When Moon leaves Virgo, she occults Venus in LIBRA, one of Venus’ signs. They carry information into the sign Jupiter will enter Sep 9, now only six days away! Moon and Venus are feminine beauty, Moon adding her mothering qualities to Venus beauty! Venus is our values, things we want, relationships we cherish or wish for, monies we need for our services, laws and politics. Jupiter has given them greater meaning yet, more perspective. Moon reminds us of our parental and cultural context, women’s roles. It all calls for a balancing of what we can do, how to serve justice, be fair and respectful, put ourselves in the other’s place as equal beings.

This complex sequence involves six planets. Sun, Moon, Neptune, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus. Let Love and Beauty reign!

Both Virgo time Eclipses are during Mercury Retrograde! Revisions in our thinking and actions aren’t always wanted or comfortable, but they do take us up, or down like switchbacks on a mountain road. Sometimes we can see down where we have been and wondered how we ever made it. Other times we look up from below and are exultant to reach the top. Other times we meander along and enjoy sights from different perspectives, opening our minds. Jupiter, the most important planet at this time, loves a great road trip and Jupiter is considered to be lucky in the sign it is in! While still in Virgo there will be worthwhile finishing touches. Make it so!

Full Harvest Moon, Penumbral Lunar Eclipse! Mars T Square the Eclipse and Bow with Venus & Uranus!

Friday September 16, 12:05 PM Pacific at 24 Pisces 20 – Not visible in North America

Full Harvest Moon Lunar Eclipse Mars Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco CA Sep 16 2016
Lunar Eclipse and the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco CA on April 4, 2014 by Michael Maloney

This is the last eclipse of 2016, the first eclipse of Jupiter in Libra! Just a week ago, Jupiter entered Libra Sep 9; Saturn made its last square to Neptune Sep 10. Since Saturn was at Station (standing still at its turning point, forward out of Retrograde), it is still less than a degree in the square, will be slowly moving forward away from the sadnesses and losses it brought to so many. There is a considerable shift in attention as Jupiter endorses Libra, the focus now on how to share the offerings of your talents, developed in Virgo, into meaningful relationships, both business and pleasure! October 23 starts a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that will be the primary aspects of 2017! Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. This eclipse is acting as a bridge between what was and will be. Libra is a sign of bridges and axes, so get social, balance up! Mercury is still RETROGRADE until Sep 21. Don’t expect things to be stable, rather embrace creative solutions at a deeper level than expected! Bring offerings and give gratitude!

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Diagram AstronomyPenumbral Eclipses translate energy of the Sun though Earth as the Medium, to Moon in Shadow.
Moon is shrouded then significantly dimmed, then emerges back though the shadow cape back to as we see her as usual. Though we in North America won’t see it at home, it still happens. If you want to visually follow it, find a good webcam site. If you want to meditate, be Sun, be Earth, feel what Moon receives. As Moon, send your filtered energy with Earth’s gratitude, prayers for all Beings, human, animal, Tree and Stone people and as you are guided.

Full Moons span the heavens from opposite vantage points gifting us with perspective. Virgo the tech helps make Pisces dreams come true. Pisces soothes Virgo, intuitively blessing us with nonlinear insights. Virgo and Pisces are strongly represented with a T Square to Mars that will make it more lively!

  • Virgo has Sun, our identity as one who serves as only you can, like no other.
  • Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn is an important part of this Eclipse! It is so close, just over a degree now, retrograding back to make the trine on the 20th, turns direct/forward the 21st, Sun goes into Libra the 22nd, Mercury trines Pluto the third and last time the 23rd! This is all during Mercury’s 8 day Station (standing still when it turns directions), an 8 day period Sep 18 to 25. Stations are an intense time of absorption and consolidation. You practically become one with the information instilled. Mercury is sorting back to clean up any snafus, obstructions. It wants the right clean information so it can apply the healing that makes the difference. Pluto knows about detoxing, deathbeds, and miraculous recoveries. This is a good time for them to collaborate.Mercury is close with the North Node, taking on things it thought it couldn’t do, and feels a little out of its league, but heady to be there! He’s taking notes right and left, some of it to be stored and restored, lost bits recovered, protected to be understood in time. Hopefully it will all come together when Mercury goes direct/forward! Health may be under consideration, job, pets, specialty training.
  • Pisces has Neptune, it’s own planet, at the South Node, things of the past. Could be yesterday or a few lifetimes ago. Some needs letting go, some a more current assimilation, other must never be forgotten, but honored, even kept sacred. Perhaps it’s time to realize what we let go long ago and fulfill that dream now! Moon has just connected with Chiron, close kin. They both serve as teachers and healers. They commiserated, shared insights, congratulated each other and are encouraged to continue their works.
  • Mars rides in, laughs in Sagittarius, cracks the whip and says enough! Either run away with me or back to work! He quickly sums up what it all means, makes a plan, and assigns duties! No fears, if you make a mistake we’ll fix it! Need help? We’ll get it for you. Chuck the compulsive details, we’ll get there just fine. Oh, and there’s a party Friday, I expect you ALL to come! Dress comfy, we’ll quit a bit early!Try not to get in a mess. Mars can be impatient and that flusters and irritates Virgo. In Sagittarius there is volume, and Virgo cringes while Pisces may be swept with it or simply evaporates when there is too much stress. Then everyone is off and nothing gets done or at least not well done. Take it easy. Reassure Mars he’s Number 1, listen best you can, show your good faith. Restore Virgo’s serenity with some softer music, or move them out of the line of fire! You may have to court Pisces to come out of the zone they went to, like the beach, LOL, or the headphones. Get back on track.

Venus, Mars, Uranus Bow Pattern! Venus is coming along to dance with Mars, and she knows the steps in Libra – ballroom and ballet are favorites! Mars in Sag is not necessarily noted for finesse, too blunt, moments of inappropriate truth, running off, and she may have some teaching to do. But she’s sweet & suave, and coos, and he feels worthy and does his best to please her. He may have a few surprises to share, like maybe he likes some lively ethnic or square dancing, and she loves him flinging her about held strongly in his arms, heart pounding and in that great billowy skirt! What a grand romantic moonlight horseback ride, and loved meeting those people from far, far away. Together they can charm the socks off the whole team!

But the one that surprises both of them is Uranus! He is opposite Venus enticing her to cut loose! He is in Aries, Mars’ sign, so he and Mars together are waking up hundreds and thousands to new ways of doing things right before our very eyes! Some are becoming amazingly more independent. Some are joining forces and formidably challenging old ways and offering credible solutions! Exciting and creative times. Venus is an outstanding broker and intermediary!

Parallel inconjuncts again! [The two purple lines] Parallel and equidistant patterns have their own peculiar potency. Last month’s Leo/Aquarius Full Grain Moon had Mercury/Jupiter inconjunct Moon and Sun inconjunct Chiron. Our Harvest Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse has Sun inconjunct Uranus and Moon leaving inconjunct Venus! Last month they were 24 and 25 degrees, this time they are 21 to 24 degrees, 24, the degree Chiron was at, being the link between both Full Moons.

  • Sun and Uranus rule opposite signs Leo/Aquarius. It’s important how we make adjustments about being an individual among our fellows. Some things must be free to be done alone and others can’t be done alone, prosper from sharing and union. Virgo to Aries is unstable, but full of ideas and excellent intentions.
  • Moon and Venus are both feminine, adapting nurturing and loving grace into our daily affairs. Moon fills your bowl and Venus blesses your way in appreciation. She’s potent in one of her own signs, and Jupiter, now in Libra too, is giving his prosperity to partnerships. Faith and equality, balance and justice for the greater good. Libra to Pisces is so different. Libra is social, loves classical music and symphony while Pisces loves quiet time or a full on concert roaring to the rafters! But Libra can whip up an amazing poster and Pisces loves art too, right from the Soul!

In several ways, this eclipse is acting as a bridge between what was and will be. Together we can make it strong and good.

Full Grass Moon! Earth Grand Trine, Mutable T Square

New SuperMoon  – TRANSIT of MERCURYTaurus Stellium, 6 Planet Grand Earth Trine, Venus activating Mutable T Square!

Full Grass Moon – Day before Earth Day!
Very lucky Earth Grand Trine/Kite, Outer Planets Mutable T Square

Thursday April 21, 10:24 PM Pacific at 2 Scorpio 31

Taurus Full Moon Labyrinth Mandala Oak Trees Creatures Earth As Above, So Below

“Every tree, every plant, has a spirit. People may say that the plant has no mind. I tell them that the plant is alive & conscious. A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit in it that is conscious, that sees everything, which is the soul of the plant, its essence, what makes it alive. The channels through which the water & sap move are the veins of the spirit.” – Pablo Amaringo

The Moon and Sun stand alone this time, very early at only 2 degrees.

Earth is definitely the number one factor. This Full Moon is called the Full Grass Moon, super fertile! It is the day before Earth Day April 22! Taurus is the first Earth sign, and there is an Earth Grand Trine/Kite formation in the Full Moon chart!!

Taurus is a blessed sign ruled by Venus. Love is the basic element in their heart. They are known as founders of organizations, often non profits. They make beauty as they can everywhere they go, every day of their lives. Flowers, healthy plants and foods, facelifts, charmingly graceful clothing, toned bodies, lovely boudoirs. Taurus is the sign of Mother Earth, conservation, permaculture, the ecological enormity of climate change.

The Moon in Scorpio may be shy, often quite private, possibly inexperienced. It would take a gentle Taurus to nuzzle up and waken that dragon without getting burned or bitten. Taurus can wait until Scorpio becomes the one who can’t! Taurus is a consummate sensualist, and Scorpio loves being gradually teased to ecstasy.

In business these two have such different styles. Taurus likes a secure feed, continuous bread and butter income. It certainly does accumulate and they often have vast land holdings. Interest and earnings get plowed back in. Scorpio loves a corporation, many mergers later, the income is over the top, way exceeding what the original founders hoped for. Together there can be many divisions and options, some come, some go, flexible. Taurus wants its own money in pocket; Scorpio shares and blends. Prenups for both.

The very lucky Earth Grand Trine/Kite starts at Jupiter 13 Virgo. Jupiter is retrograde in station, has traveled to old places, back as far as it will go, to retrieve some unfinished information to complete the project. It might want to publish, but is not quite ready yet.

  • Jupiter is very close in trine with Pluto, next at 17 Capricorn. They are thinking about ways to prosper and alliances to make for excellent health and living conditions, meaningful research, accounting, and production. Trine Pluto, Jupiter expands Pluto’s thinking, creates an intense desire for increase. They are both just waiting for another lucrative option to come their way. Meanwhile, details of negotiations in progress are being ironed out. Miraculous healing potential is in the offing.
  • Pluto is followed by Mercury at 21 Taurus. Jupiter and Pluto have been looking for ways to build their estate, both physically and in Spirit, long term healing of the Soul. Mercury paid him a trine visit the 17th, the day Mars retrograded. This focused energy while Mars was in Station (appearing to stand still in the sky) held the connection so an intelligent, verbal and mindful merger could be formed, maybe papers were signed. Mercury in Taurus will carry the message Jupiter in Virgo has gleaned and is bestowing, reality checked by Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury now values that information, consummating the intent that the Word will be spread in fertile places.

Mercury has a prime part  in the Full Moon Grand Trine!

  •  The Earth Grand Trine started with Jupiter, now it finishes with Mercury at a same degree trine the North Node retrograde at 21 Virgo! The Moon’s North Node is thought by many to be a karmic factor of past lives. What a lucky connection! Knowledge from long ago is brought forward, revealed in detail. Virgo is the second of Mercury’s signs, so there is a working rapport. Virgo is the placemaker, health helper, organizer, fund manager. A lot can get done.
  • Mercury’s very next connection, making the Grand Trine even luckier, is in a Kite pattern with Chiron, the Centaur of healing wounds, teaching, marriage and business! Excellent. Mercury is importantly key because the 19th, the day the Sun came into Taurus, Mercury was, for the first time, at the degree of the TRANSIT of MERCURY coming May 9! It is now carrying the TRANSIT of MERCURY energy! See More!
  • Mercury sextile Chiron in Pisces sees Chiron’s vision, puts some words to it, helps ground it and start the founding of a magical, possibly spiritual venture. With Chiron just having been with the Moon’s South Node, things from the past, past lives, may play a part. Relationships matter in a new deeper way. Integrity is more important than status or numbers.
  • There may be a surprise harmony of purpose since Venus, Taurus’s planet with Uranus, both in Aries, are semi sextile midpoint between Mercury and Chiron! Of all times, say what you want and why you want it! Being on the same page is incredibly potent and peaceful! There may be a temporary sense of being off center – it’s just a spot you’re not used to being in yet – but you will be so glad you spoke up. If that doesn’t go as well as you hoped, maybe you are better off to move on. Perhaps you have planted a seed that will pay off handsomely later on.

Mars has been riding along square Neptune for some time. Allowing a 5 degree range, it started way back March 18! They have been quite close as Mars slowed to retrograde, then Mars retrograded at 8 Sag 54 while Neptune was at 11 degrees. There has been whispering, hinting, haunting. Neptune rules Pisces and is currently IN Pisces, the last sign. Mars rules Aries the first sign! One dreams and visions, the other takes action to make the dream come true. In Square, there have been constraints. Neptune is somewhat inaccessible at times, hard to read, too soft to really get our attention. Mars has been traveling about in Sagittarius, perhaps too busy to focus, not always in town. There are some kinks in the circuits that will at times be unresolved background noise. The exact square won’t finally close until August 25!

Outer Planets Mutable T Square! Jupiter has been in close square with Saturn in Sagittarius since our Pisces Moons. See lots more! Now it is closer yet with the exact square coming May 26 at 13 Virgo/Sag 41. Jupiter sitting at 13 is also back closely opposite Neptune. Though it doesn’t make the exact opposition, the nature of it is with us. See more And Saturn is retrograding back to square Neptune June 17! See more

Jupiter is up, Saturn can be down, Neptune shy and unfathomable. Jupiter inspires and invites, Saturn does the hard work, Neptune intuitively guides the enterprise. Jupiter wants to travel to the healer, Saturn finds the best rates, Neptune is already there calling you home. Saturn is at the point of this T Square, so he has weight, the power of experience, authority, timing. Saturn takes responsibility while Jupiter may want to run away and Neptune simply vaporizes! It’s tough herding kittens. If Saturn is too much a heavy, the others give up or it never gets off the ground at all, the energies too disparate. But if Saturn is clever, each is given a task they can’t wait to do, and not too much at once, please, then there is a pleasing result, just not as much as hoped for, or you may be happily surprised! Sometimes it is the finding ways to work together, any steps in the right direction, that are more worth it. Our hopes and expectations may be forever modified, more blended, our listening capacity opened, and in Spirit, in our Souls, we get much further in a good way.

We are so blessed to have each other in this great labyrinth of Life!

New SuperMoon – TRANSIT of MERCURY
Taurus Stellium, 6 Planet Grand Earth Trine, Venus with Mutable T Square!

Friday May 6 at 12:29 PM Pacific – 16 Taurus 41

This is a super important New Moon! In Taurus it is solid, immovable, strong. It opens the doors to new beginnings. It strengthens, stabilizes and supports us to be able to receive the titanic 7.5 hour solar infusion of the TRANSIT of MERCURY!

May 6 New Moon
xxxx8 Mother’s Day
xxxx9 TRANSIT of MERCURY!

Grand Earth Trine in Sweet Taurus! 4 Planet Stellium, cluster, in Taurus!

Venus is in one of her own signs and in a lucky trine with Jupiter retrograde in Virgo coming back to meet her! There will be blessings on our projects, writings, landscaping and veggie gardens in the days to come. The exact trine is May 10 at 12 Noon Pacific!

Moon and Sun have already trined Jupiter, the Sun on the 3rd, and the Moon just hours before, sealing the deal, at 7:06 AM Pacific. Sun has brightened the opportunities; Moon has added her nurturing to bring the good results we have hoped for. Focus on the long term good. Put your energy where it will grow well.

Moon and Sun are in a 1 degree trine with Pluto retrograding to meet them! This is a super aspect of power and wealth. It may be gentle to watch since Taurus is thoughtful first. Suspense builds. A partnership long wanted may finally become openly agreed on though some of the agreement will be private or confidential. When Taurus gives their commitment, they are loyal and will build the foundation needed for the perpetuity of the cause. Pluto in Capricorn has many potent connections that will lend expertise, fund a product or program for the good of all. It could be research, healing. Jupiter is retrograding away from the trine with Pluto, so it all won’t be as big as it could be, but further ideas are there ready to fulfill when Jupiter turns direct, forward, and that trine is made June 26!

Mercury is retrograde, going back to trine Pluto May 12. Some paperwork may be signed then, but don’t forget, Mercury is retrograde, and things may fall through in spite of the signatures. Mercury goes back to 14 Taurus, almost makes it back to trine Jupiter exactly at 13 Virgo, but is just over a degree shy. So, we think about what we could do, but those contracts are not signed. We are enlivened, see the details, how it could be, but it isn’t the time yet. Still, we carry the ideas with us, and they help shape our intentions, enhance our chances.

Mutable Signs T Square ~ Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

  • Venus and Mars are adding love and beauty, action, to the Mutable T Square through Neptune. The T is Neptune in Pisces, its own sign, opposite Jupiter in Virgo, both of them square Saturn in Sagittarius at its point. Mutable signs adapt, are flexible, offer change, move with the times.
  • Venus is first. In addition to her trine with Jupiter, first she sextiles Neptune. That is an old fashioned Soul Mate combination. Venus loves for love, beauty and money, but Neptune loves because he sees your Soul, the sufferings, your dreams. Neptune has understanding beyond words, empathy, compassion. That Love is more spiritual than material. Venus in Taurus loves her pleasure, the textures of life, being in her body, on this Earth. When Neptune makes music, whether etheric or rock and roll, Venus enjoys the dance. It’s an exquisite ballet blessed with grace, perhaps a sensuous symphony, maybe a benefit for some marvelous cause!
  • Though Mars retrograde in Sagittarius didn’t make the exact square with Neptune, there is still a feeling in the air of no languishing in the ashram! Gotta get up and take it on the road! Time to preach it to the people, put the vision on the podium, show them the pictures! Mars came close, took a peek, got Neptune excited, and is now going back to spread the good word to some interested parties.

Moon and Sun inconjunct Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us that our actions have a far reaching, sometimes long enduring impact, occasionally consequences! Saturn is more that just simple timing, it is our life’s work – Dharma, Karma if you will. Taurus holds energy by nature. Give them something worthy of keeping, fertile, that will unfold through time, growing good for our community. Be in communion with your family, neighbors, friends, that we may learn together, teach meaningfully in joyous ways suited to each special Soul. Taurus is a very personal sign. They steep in themselves to be totally self aware like the Buddha who sits. Let their peace be at our center, well grounded.

This 16 degree New Moon is immediate support to the May 9 TRANSIT OF MERCURY, Eclipse of the Sun at 19 Taurus 25! Mercury is retrograding back to make the conjunction. On average there are only 13 of these Eclipses per century, so this is an uncommon aspect. The next is Nov 11, 2019. After that, it’s 2032!

The Mutable T Square has been a long term combination. The New Moon Taurus Stellium is comparatively only a few days, but potent with Moon and Sun together, and Venus in one of her own signs! That they are in an Earthy 6 planet Grand Trine, the most favorable of astrological planet patterns, indicates both substance and that reception is in place for the potent volatile solar infusion through Mercury. Taurus represents treasures, enduring values, loyal sustainable love, stability. Venus is noted for kindness and grace, simple wisdom. Together they will keep the information received safe, focus and strengthen it in time to come. They will make it hum with beauty, irresistible, ready to be shared.

See more about the Eclipse!

Both this New Moon and the TRANSIT of MERCURY open gateways to Jupiter in Virgo square Saturn May 26, only 20 days away. Jupiter is in Station, appears to be standing still, as it turns direct, forward, just 3 hours before the TRANSIT of MERCURY! Information will be steeped for maximum potency and focused at Jupiter’s station point, then unfolded gradually as Jupiter gains momentum going forward. Some of the information will be organized, filtered by Virgo’s no nonsense ability, utilized increasingly, 10 fold, as it gets integrated with our lives and our frequencies are stepped up. Matters of health, our life processes, rights for animals, where we live, will be considered. Jupiter will pass it by Saturn for his consideration. Saturn will test it, build on it, take it with him, moderate the timing, delegate to people of appropriate ages, place it at key educational points.

Astronomically this is a New SuperMoon! The aspects make it a super New Moon!

Magnificent! Union by Master digital artist Android Jones

In Libra, taking initiative in relationships, actively peacekeeping, inspiring others through respect and equality are traits we have been building. Fighting fair and negotiating keep things on an even keel. A legal representative can save us from so much stress and blunders, when a matter is really just business. They know how to do it and do it for a living. Independence from non working relationships, partnerships, sometimes takes strength and courage, but so worth it. When we disengage, it takes time to grieve, restore self esteem, and is doable. We are better at seeing the warning flags and stepping away when it is not a good connection for us.

Mars is a natural first responder. If an emergency occurs, quick action can prevent further difficulty and save a situation from failure. Let yourself establish new connections at a higher level, and insert new intelligence to uplevel from your current place. If you have been missing beauty in your life, take better care of your body. Get some pretties for your home, paint the place! What you see is what you be! Sign up for an art or dance class!

All these good things will set the way for you to delve more deeply when Mars goes into Scorpio, the sign of Mystery! When we are rooting around in the underpinnings of the Universe, it’s good to have supportive friends and visual talismans that remind us we have good power and can make uplifting choices. That’s true in times we do the hard work of healing too. Healing takes strength at many levels, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. Libra can make liaisons level to level, so Scorpio can cleanse attitudes that build blockages, literal chemicals that stall our progress.

We may have financial options revealed that without good relationships we would have never heard of. Support from our connections encourage us to make our life better when we feel intimidated. And Scorpio can offer more than we ever dreamt of! It helps us through dark times, fear of success, or simply ‘growing up’ to a better life!

Mars in Scorpio is marvelously intense! Just ask anyone born with it about that category of their life! Mars can have mixed feelings being in Scorpio. Mars is famous for being direct, but in Scorpio is called on to be devious at times, for better or worse. It learns more self mastery in Scorpio. Instead of a quickie, its tantric sex and recognition of the sacred feminine. Mars here takes a few more moments to assess the reasons behind the situation. It is aware of more dimensions of personal power, some ominous, some bravely healing. Rather than sending them packing, or leaving them behind, they might gather the troublemakers in for a spirit talk, a healing of all, including the healer!

Mars in Scorpio enjoys poking around where others fear to tread. They take a deep drink at the well. Death is no stranger. Danger they can handle. It is courted for thrill and curiosity. They can find out what’s wrong when no one else could, be it in your body or bookkeeping! They often walk behind the scenes, quiet heroes that would be there for you in a heartbeat. Both Mars and Scorpio are warriors, the therapist that battles for your very Soul, the unseen deadly ninja that protects you, the astute financial adviser that saves you in a nick of time. Silence, privacy, confidentiality can be powerful virtues, though personally you may wonder where you stand with them. If they are hanging out with you at all, you have passed some kind of safety test. At worst they are tolerating you; at best you have gotten under their skin in a good way for keeps.

Scorpio is a ‘fixed’ sign, one that stays with what it says. They simply won’t be pushed off center. If you do push, they might appear threatening, act like they agree and go on as they are, or flat out ignore you like a pesky fly. Do be a tad careful. Scorpio isn’t called the scorpion for nothing! This dedication isn’t of Mars’ nature, so there will be moments of its instant fiery nature. Know that you might be swatted and put in your place, enough that it takes your breath away. If you are mean, don’t expect to get away with it forever. They have their own moments, and know what mean is all about. Retaliation is not one of their virtues. They can be patient literally for years, but they are human and there are limits. Just sayin’.

Given a good cause to campaign for, there can be mighty results. Give major praise to these obsessed beasts. They are spiritual animals who give their lives that transformation happens in this lifetime! If you are considering a relationship, do plan to be on board with the challenge offered. They deserve and need a mate of that caliber. Though they can look formidable and forever capable, they need a deep support to do this strenuous work. If you have a child with this placement, happens every two years, offer them compelling projects. Introduce them to the most scrupulous people you know, the ones that are getting things done in a good way. Don’t be afraid to share your child. They know things you don’t and never will, plus, heck, you can’t do it ALL yourself. Engage them in sacred talk about the Great Mysteries to open their thinking.

It took 7 months of Libra to prep us for this Scorpio time! Let’s make it count! For many, this 2 months of Scorpio will be too short! Mars goes into Sagittarius Sep 13! 

Power up, cherish, and embed these formidable qualities. Sharing is one of the deepest generosities of Scorpio. They enfold you, forgive your petty foibles, give you a spiritual steam cleaning, love you like no other! You will never be the same again. Think of pure butterfly beauty.

LEO, Radiance from Your Heart

LEO Radiance from Your Heart ~ Holeman
Daniel B Holeman’s visionary art! His Sun & 3 more planets are in his Leo house!

Being in LOVE shows! It might be holding a precious baby, a teacher gently showing the way, or thundering with Spirit. The engagement may be the show of a lifetime, or an unspoken kindness. But the hearts know. It could be dinner with old friends or new friends, lovers hand in hand.

Radiance is healing personified! It is Light for the Way. Radiance can become magnificence, each in our own way. It can warm the Soul of the most jaded Seeker, fearful Hero. Generosity, forgiveness become possible as we understand.

Light frees us from past choices. It illuminates how things have changed, and we can see new options. It may be uncomfortable until we adjust, become more comfortable at the new frequency. Living in more success is challenging. We have to expand our Persona. The Routine as we knew it has vanished!

Think about choosing partners with more health, more heart, more LIFE! How better can YOU be?! LET your life expand, answer the call! In your relationships, all of them, see if there is a way you can invite others to up the amps. Extend your range of relationships. Try new things with new people, a different culture, different age, different faith. Take a course with creative expression a mile long! Stretch your Spirit muscles!

Success just feels good. You have more to offer than you realize. Your ideas are brilliant and vibrant with life, special. If no one else is telling you that, know it for yourself, because, simply, there is no one else like you. And, you are perfect just the way you are. Every moment begets the next. Give it your best shot and keep that heartfelt vision in mind! It’s the Beacon! Keep the best right in front of your eyes. Make no mistakes! If you are easily distracted, put those good images all over the place! They will bring you right back to that beautiful Heart Center of yours.

Health is elemental, Light is fundamental. Choose Radiance every time. Move your molecules, exercise in the Light every day, even if it is Light gray with cloud cover. Up on your hind legs you can see more, breathe more, hear more! When you feel good, you will get out there and get the good stuff right in your grubby little paws! Take good care of your sacred Light body. Feed it the best, give it clothes that make you feel like a billion bucks! Could be sweatshirt & jeans or a suit! Your unique style attracts all the right people. Pamper your fine body with spas, relaxing yoga, and peaceful sleep like a big kitty on the savanna.

Big as the LEO heart is, it is so important to know when it’s not your story, meaning let someone more suited do it. Don’t confuse love and doing what’s true for you. Some people are incredible with elders, children, slow learners, fast changes, repetitive work, tons of responsibility, others aren’t. What’s true for you is your personal valuable Gift to give. No more, no less. You are you. That’s just the Perfect way Spirit made you. You are the only one holding your Point of Light. Let it shine!

2014 Leo is the first in 12 years to have JUPITER IN LEO as well! May Gabriel blow his horn! Jupiter, the great jazz lover Storyteller, celebrates Leo’s exploits with enthusiasm! Another fiery planet, traveler and fellow teacher, Jupiter enjoys leading Leo further than ever before! It’s robust summer fun, big spirited, even spiritual! Many learnings are shared, prodigious creations made, our Hearts expand with joy, faith and hope! Hallelujah!


Leo 2014 Highlights!  

July 16 Jupiter leapt into LEO, a grand Sign for a grand Planet! Using 5 degree orbs/range, Saturn remains in its continuous close trine with Chiron through August 5! This is the last of their 5 trines. Mars is in final days of Libra, been there since Dec 7, 2013, goes into Scorpio, July 25. Sun squares Saturn Aug 3 to 9.

LEO Susie King Taylor

Head held high, August 6*, 1848 Susie KING Taylor is our 2014 Leo heroine! I picked her chart for 3 reasons.

First, she was a Leo! She was blessed with Venus conjunct her Sun, so what she proposed from her heart appeared valuable, and people helped her.

Second, she had Jupiter in Leo. Her will to be educated and to educate was exceptional. Jupiter just went into Leo July 17, so we are again in this will to educate period now until Aug 11, 2015, a year!

Third, Susie was born the previous time Uranus conjuncted Pluto, as people born 1965 and 1966 have! Many of them can identify with her. She was remarkable for her time and faced extreme dangers. For most people her color living in danger was everyday business, but she pushed it and change happened.

That conjunction in combination with her Scorpio Moon made her sneaky enough to get an education, in an area where there were harsh laws against the formal education of African Americans. Bless her, she attended two secret schools taught by black women. While with Civil War Union forces, army officers offered to obtain books for her if she would organize a school. She became the first black teacher for freed African American students in Georgia. She taught forty children in day school and “a number of adults who came to me nights, all of them so eager to learn to read, to read above anything else.”

Also life threatening, Susie got involved serving as an Army nurse in the Civil War. She nursed, taught the black soldiers to read and write, and did their laundry. At 15, during the summer of 1863, Susie worked alongside Clara Barton, who later founded the American Red Cross.

Mrs Taylor wrote Reminiscences of My Life in Camp with the 33d United States Colored Troops, Late 1st S.C. Volunteers. She was the only African American woman to publish a memoir of her wartime experiences, and her journal, A Black Woman’s Civil War Memoirs, is the only known record of a black woman’s achievements during this period. May we all care and share so much.

*Mrs Taylor’s birthdate is given variously as August 5, 6 or 8. The 6th is used the most often, and by Wikipedia, and to me, the chart fits, so I chose August 6, 1848.
