Venus Retrograde Pink Rose Baby's Breath

June 21, Summer Solstice, the day the Sun entered Cancer, Venus started her 3 retrograde phases! 

First phase June 21 to July 25 – 14 Leo to 0 Virgo
Retrograde July 25 to Sep 6, 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, 44 days
Phase three, Direct Sep 6 to Oct 9, 14 Leo to 0 Virgo, complete

Venus the planet of Love and Beauty is in Leo the sign of the Heart of Love. Virgo is the sign of Maidenhood, the primordial juicy Virgin, Purity. 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo are the degrees covered. All but one are in Leo. 0 is the degree of Initiation, new beginnings. We will be launching a new system of daily living (Virgo) founded by lots of Love and creativity (Leo)!

Venus in Leo goes from refined genteel tea ceremony caring to robust party-out rock-n-roll knock-me-down LOVE! Presents mean a lot, from the tiniest rosebud to the best sound system in LA or the finest art! The tallest heels, highest laced boots, the most magical sweeping hair, makeup to light the night! Sequins to diamonds, every star must shine! Princess or Queen, a canny lass knows what’s best!

On the home front it might look like the warmest heart in the world, the tastiest sweet treats in your lunch box. A loving sweetheart makes your life easy, fixes things before you ask, brings you little gifts that make your day, makes that I-love-you call, knows who you are and the good things you do and says so.

On the job it is making the world a more beautiful place, a touch of beauty that makes a difference, sells the product. Successful social gatherings share the pride of a job well done. Entertainment, performances exceed all expectations! Poetry tells the story, and if you are really lucky, you win the bet!

Venus in Virgo is the sweetest. Virgo wants to help. They will slave away day after day, long into the night. They care for the sick, clean up messes, manage your money, help the tenants, do yard maintenance, plant the veggie garden, feed the pets, make sure you have quality food. Whatever it is, they take the time and do more than most, better than anyone, in the shortest time! They are super natural organizers and save money, barter like a banshee. They can be Mother, Midwife, Mystic all rolled into one, all while writing the novel or the grant application!

And believe me, this is all possible with the Retrograde STATION at 0 Virgo, the degree of REGULUS the King, one of the four Royal Stars! Regulus has been in Leo until recently. Now in this feminine sign Virgo, having the only female symbol of the zodiac, the King/God has become Queen/Goddess! It is with great honor that this magical 0 degree station is held for TWELVE DAYS+, late July 18 to early July 30! It will be an initiation, a trial period, a time of considering Purity, the primordial essence of Virgo. It is an indwelling absorption, imbibing the perpetual intention to serve. It calls for an innocence, serving without judgment, gratitude for how each gives as they can at the time.

So first we have Leo the sign of kings, then Virgo at the degree of the king of kings!!! If some of your followers have been missing, call a meeting and give orders! :) You women claim your Queenhood, put on a flowers and herb wreath and enjoy every minute. Be of a generous Spirit for you have it to give. Claim the divine power of the Maiden Goddess Persephone. Be the Midwife/Healer who was trained by her Mother, and Mother’s Mother, and trains her Daughter. Be the One to start that tradition. Be kind in your power. Change is inevitable; it just might not happen at your pace.

Another way is to think about this is the background of the transition of Regulus from Leo to Virgo in 2011, how profound that was, still is. The Leo to Virgo link is the transformation that happens every month as the Moon moves from Leo to Virgo, and every year when the Sun transits from Leo to Virgo. It is symbolized by the Sphinx, head of a Virgin woman, body of a Lion! Being first, the Lion is the foundation, support for Virgo. We know the story of Centaurs (Sagittarius/Jupiter), half horse, half man. Well this is the woman part. The Sphinx is less talked about, a greater mystery for the time being. Women are still finding their way out of slavery, having no rights, being abused. Time to call on the Leo Lion’s strength, be grateful for its Heart and Light. As the horse gave men a greater range of freedom, the ‘enlightened’ Virgo heads the strength of the Lion and serves by choice.

RETROGRADE it all takes a turn. Values shift. Your body tells you it wants different. Age might become a factor. Your exercise routine may be interrupted and those chocolates add pounds. It’s 99% not the time for facelifts or elective procedures. Your wardrobe is all the wrong colors and no longer fits, but wait, don’t buy new while retrograde. A person you thought well of is not as expected after all. They aren’t lover material, and you decide you don’t like that job or want that part in the play either! A long ago abandoned lover returns and you don’t know whether to switch or cut bait! Due to unexpected events, the bet is entirely lost, party cancelled. Better to wait on big spending – furniture, remodeling, expensive landscaping, or even that house. You have changed; you don’t even want it anymore.

HEADS UP for late summer, early fall planning! July 25 to Sep 6, while Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, most wouldn’t choose this as falling-in-love-on-your-vacation time, nor a wedding date choice time. Retrogrades can be unstable with constant mind changes. With this bound in the chart of something started at this time, you always have a sense of unfinished business, there is constant reappraisal. Values aren’t settled. If you love that, the challenges and the Leo dramas it brings, have money to spare for when things change, then life is good, just gets better and better. If aspects are well for you, for you both, at that time, love always returns, better than ever! Leo loves big! If it is at the 0 degree Virgo time, it is probably better to choose a different time. Virgos have enough to do already, and function best in their own routines.

Generally, new needs are in the offing.

THREE PHASES Give it the time it takes. Venus is in the degrees that will be reassessed June 21 to July 25. It Retrogrades July 25, going from 0 Virgo to half way back into Leo, 14 Leo. It will cross this same area the third time when it goes Direct September 6 on to finish the pattern October 9. The whole process will take 3 months, 18 days.

Here’s another way to look at the Celestial Schedule with the Star Regulus!

7/18 Venus at Regulus 1st time
7/25 Venus retrograde near Regulus
7/31 Venus conjunct Regulus 2nd time, Aquarius full moon
8/4 Jupiter and Venus conjunct for the 2nd time at 28 Leo very close to Regulus
8/11 Jupiter arrives at Regulus
8/15 Venus inferior conjunction (Venus transitions to morning star)
10/8 Venus arrives at Regulus for the third time and continues forward
10/25 3rd Venus Jupiter conjunction

Venus also makes aspects with three planets, three times each during its retrograde cycle.

  1. June 28, Aug 19 continuous to Sep 22, the day before Autumn Equinox, Sun into Libra, Venus trines Uranus in Aries. Blessings of friends and community organizations, loves flights, beauty inventions, new hairstyle, astrology readings, extraordinary performances, singers, gifts – especially of the electronic kind! We don’t mind having a great aspect like this three times!
  2. June 30, Aug 19, Sep 21 Inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. These dates are traveling closely with the Trine Uranus dates. Venus in Leo wants love, Chiron wants marriage, but inconjuncts are often divorce due to an askew connection. Things just seem to slip apart. This aspect also calls money and business decisions into question. If timely significant adjustments are made the situation may be saved. Or, just let go.
  3. July 13, Aug 5, Square Saturn in Scorpio, Oct 10 Square Saturn in Sagittarius. In Scorpio, the first two squares, there may be loss of love or money whether stolen, misrepresented, a mistake, or greater expenses. The breakthrough may be not falling for the seduction again, realizing the payoff may not be very much, doing the tough work it takes, admitting reality, reducing expenses. There may be a necessary and natural grieving period. In Sagittarius, your direction may not go as planned, maybe a relief, but soon better! Be careful of over confidence, fearful reactionary over spending. Give it a trial time, modify sensibly. A first step with genuine good intention often leads to another though it may be a challenging passage. Have a backup plan to ease your mind.
As of June 21, many things will not turn out as anticipated, especially ones in the fixed signs, Taurus/Scorpio and Leo/Aquarius. Fixed sign’s purposes are to stabilize, not disrupt, yet some change is a must, as much as the growth from chrysalis to butterfly. Things you deliberately want to be changed, might need some help getting done, so instead of seeking a conclusion, let them ride, continue on and the retrograde will help loosen the roots and knots. What will be will be. Most assuredly, it will be better when all is said and done! Sometimes there is so much transformation you no longer recognize what it was when it all started! Maybe you won’t remember because the new Light has taken your breath away and filled your mind with new beauty and wonder!

Walk in Beauty.

WESAK FULL Flower Moon ~ Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow!

WESAK Full Flower Moon – Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow
Sunday May 3 at 8:42 PM Pacific – 13 Scorpio 23

Taurus 2015 WESAK Full Flower Moon Dyer
Though this is at Bow Lake, Banff, Alan Dyer of Alberta, captures a scene worthy of the Buddha’s birthday celebration, WESAK, in the Himalayas! 

Full Moons both divide and unite. Sun and Moon are as far apart as they can get in our heavens, giving each space to be themselves, the least fettered by the other. Unlike a New Moon Merger, they have spread their skills to the far winds, and being separated, they can see each other respectfully for who they are uniquely rather than so at one ment they see the New Moon merger rather than their difference. Since January, the Full Moons of the signs are coming before the New Moons, so the appreciation of difference comes first, setting the stage for a respectful and more whole merger of equals. This will be true until May/June 2016 when there will be two Gemini Full Moons, and the pattern then reversed, New Moons before Full Moons.

Full Moons unite anyway because they negotiate, offer options for partnership, enhance each others standing. Division is like multiplication when we each bring our skills to the project! We get to know each other, different ages, faiths, races. A rich blend creates more than was ever expected, has a life of its own!

The Moon in Scorpio has a nose for power and primal forces, wants to share, is a natural healer, is deeply intimate, stands with you from birth to death. They have lots of cards, some of which you will never be privy to. They are superb at recycling and detoxing, cleanup. Successful research and medicine, corporate funding, behind the scenes access are possible. Perfumes, mushrooms and vampires, and fine wine.

The Sun in Taurus, the sign of the Buddha, is steady in the Light. What Scorpio knows, Taurus, the knower of lasting value, brings to the surface to be tended and nurtured. Gentle Taurus, slow and safe, listens to the wild beasties, hears their song. Super strong Taurus is literally capable of carrying the Scorpio knowledge, so Scorpio is willing to share with them. Taurus is often a founder, founding organizations, funding teachings. Taurus’ staying power is surety there will be time enough for the teachings to spread and sink in. This pair are formidable fixed signs with forever intentions. Give them the job.

Mercury in Gemini is just barely separating opposition Saturn Sagittarius, having been exact at 1:35 AM! May 1 or 2 may have brought some harsh or fearful, sad words or thoughts about responsibilities or commitments, credibility matters. Calm yourself, face realities, focus on doing the best you can do in a timely fashion.

Venus has only four more days in Gemini, is separating a semi sextile Mars in Taurus (one of Venus’s signs). Values need to be put into action, loving appreciative words need to be spoken. Actions need to be stabilized by additional positive information that makes you more fully enjoy your work.

A SAME degree Jupiter Leo T Square is the big affair of the day! Getting where you want to go may not be so easy. But often, that IS the test. You may not have directions, or there is an error, it is the ‘wrong’ right day, someone else can’t go. Trust is called for. Trusting yourself, your feelings, that you can do on your own. Teachings may not be accepted just yet. Good intentions may not make it happen. The signs are all fixed, so give things time. Go with an open mind, you may be the one who changes! Be exuberant, but not so pushy they dig in. If you are the listener, breathe and breathe, relax. No matter how excited others are, you still can make up your own mind, and, oh heavens, disagree! Maybe the whole show never comes to pass and you save time and money! Or, there could be breakthroughs! All that stirring up was just what was needed for people to see!

♦ Pluto Capricorn Bow Pattern Maybe you haven’t heard of a Bow Pattern. It is two planets opposite each other, in this case the Full Moon, Sun and Moon, with a third planet, in this case Pluto, at a 1/3 and 2/3s point between them. Sun in Taurus is trine (120 degrees) Pluto Cap in the first and last Earth signs. Sun is making the approach, so Light is coming to darker Pluto Cap. Taurus has an inevitable quality, not easily dissuaded once in motion, and the Sun is indomitable. Expect a brightening, a steadying, a sensible reasoning. Sun trine Pluto is famous for successful major corporate business. Things that have been on the table for awhile, barring the Jupiter T Square matters, may come to fruition.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile (60 degrees) with Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn! There is harmony of Scorpio/Pluto and water/earth compatibility. Sextiles are enriched by different elements giving more opportunities, collaborations. Moon in Scorpio handles the monies adroitly, while lawmaker Capricorn drives the work force, is the Captain of Time. Scorpio is the delving psychoanalyst, while Capricorn the Builder composes the structure. They are adept at rebirth, renewing the old, archaeological to historical.

North Node in Libra, on a 19 year cycle, now conjuncts fixed star Vindemiatrix, inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces.

  • North Node Libra  North Nodes in general are thought to be where we are balancing the old opposite sign in our chart. Sometimes there is a little fear getting used to new territory, so opposite where old skills are held. Aries is opposite Libra, a supreme independence versus the can’t-make-up-your-mind Libra impotence. Yet Librans are tigers when they get to court as lawyers, are in a political fray, or strategize chess or wars. They are not shy at socializing! Relationships are a must. Libra is amiable and accomodating. Collaboration and partnership make good sense, independence need not be lost.
  • Vindemiatrix.  Add these factors: On the dark side, Astrologer Robson says V is Saturn/Mercury by nature, hence gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows, the WidowMaker. Ebertin & Hoffman, differently say it gives mental concentration, great for architects and businessmen. If it is badly placed, and especially so if in conjunction with Saturn or Neptune, there is a tendency to depressive moods, skepticism, a distrustful nature. Bernadette Brady takes us back to that V is in Virgo, sign of harvest. It offers the taking time to harvest what you have planted, to patiently collect the things that you like or need. Art collectors, stamp collectors, people who gather facts or things are expressions of this star.
  • The inconjunct with Neptune throws one off kilter a bit. With things slightly askew, there are shifts in perspective, leaks to the outside, infusions seep inside. Secure all the openings, or allow the ventilation, observing the opportunities as they come by, or you go by them. You can adjust by both letting go, making new space, and deliberately making an oblique foray worth the exploration! New relationships, what you might never have considered before, may be formed out of seeming chaos. Neptune softens the boundaries. There is confusion, some fear of the unknown, yet new awareness. Misunderstandings become compassion. Balance is differently weighted. Equality is redefined. Beauty is a mystery, amorphous, exquisite, shimmering before your eyes. Dreams may be your cues.

 In the background, Jupiter in Leo is slowly closing on the marvelous super trine to Uranus in Aries on June 22! If it connects with your chart, in Fire signs there is an undercurrent of excitement, confidence. Challenges will work out, be met. Teaching and learning will be happening all along, go to seminars! Unusual writings may be published. World wide matters will see heroes and heroines. Education for rights, human and animal, are being sounded. Fame and Fortune are possible! Fun and travel. Make university choices by June 22, the exact last aspect, but not during Mercury Retrograde May 18 to June 11. See an astrologer for your personal best dates. The philosophy of a lifetime may be selected.

Make it count because our next super favorable major Jupiter/Uranus combo isn’t until Dec 15, 2019 and it happens only once that time! It is in Earth signs, 2 degrees Capricorn/Taurus. If it doesn’t connect with your chart then, you will have to wait for another 4 years after that!

May your Full Flower Moon Circle be Blessed. Happy Wesak, Namaste.

Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
Sunday May 17 at 9:18 PM Pacific – 26 Taurus 56

Taurus, Buddhist Woman. Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during 77th birthday celebration of exiled spiritual leader Dalai Lama in Kathmandu.

A Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during the 77th birthday celebration of the exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Kathmandu, Nepal

Our Taurus New Moon is inconjunct the degree of the Galactic Center and conjunct the Fixed Star Caput Algol! One is as wonderful as the old lore of the other is bad, bad, bad! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! It is at 26 Sagittarius, the lucky sign of the Traveler and Teacher! Taurus teaches through Earth wisdom, by connecting through touch, symbolically supporting by planting crops. Taurus teaches the Peace of the Buddha and has body sense through Yoga and organic eating. Inconjunct indicates some kind of a query, a slight disturbance, a course correction.

 Old timer astrologers considered Caput Algol, 26 Taurus 23, at worst to be the most dangerous star in the heavens, beheading, the Demon Star. The list of famous people having it strongly in their charts will almost make you a believer. Yet, a binary blinking, pulsating, eclipsing double-star, it is also associated with extreme creativity! There’s hope! At the same time, there is a symbolic constant death/rebirth scenario, that puts you in touch with intense maximum experiences. Burn out or ride it. So this New Moon may be quite more intense than Taurus’s usual calm self. It may be internal or you might need to get out of its way!

New Moons have their own kind of intensity as the two Lights in the heavens conjoin. The dark opens doors to inner realms. There is a quietening so we hear more subtly. This is a late degree stand alone New Moon, stand alone meaning it isn’t connected with other planets. Things are unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Things that are ending are blessed and their maturity celebrated. There is always a child quality and super Feminine to New Moons, as Mama Moon, also of Children comes to be with Father Sun. What’s new is begun, honored with initiation. Another way of being with the New Moon is to let things wind down, just stop. Take time out, rest. Let go of old expectations, be thankful for what you have. Taurus can sit like the Buddha or do proactive Tai Chi. Both are totally in tune expressions.

North Node in Libra is now past the exact inconjunct with Neptune in Pisces. It is still conjunct the fixed star Vindemiatrix. See above

Zesty Mars, now in Gemini, is separating the opposition it made with Saturn in Sagittarius the 14th. If that connected with your chart, you will still be working out what it brought. Mars in Gemini is clever indeed, trying to dodge Saturn’s rules, boundaries, may be exhausted from the effort. Yet there are times a steadying force is a relief. Mars in Gemini can just spin, flail about with no direction. Though that kind of freedom can be exhilarating and lead you to amazing ideas, it can get nervous if frightened and forget the objective. Saturn in Sag helps us keep on course, the long term goal in mind. Mars in Gemini is an information gatherer par excellance! Saturn at times gets stuck in its righteous routine, needs a nudge to move along, and with new information comes to life again!

Venus, Taurus’s planet, currently in Cancer, trined Neptune in Pisces the day before! Fresh dreams, spiritual intention, connection with the Masters. You want more than just money. Beauty is etheric. Music and the arts may have been endowed or you resolved to take up dance again! Your home may be ready for a remodel, or smoothies be back on the menu. An altar at home could be inspiring. At this New Moon you could do a dedication circle. You may miss your Mother, love your children more, so proud. You think of Soulmates, give gratitude for your blessings. Anchor them at the New Moon. Give praise.

 Mercury is in STATION! That means it appears to be ‘standing still’ in the sky before turning RETROGRADE the NEXT DAY, MAY 18 at 6:50 PM Pacific. Mercury, in one of its own signs, Gemini, is sextile Jupiter, but doesn’t make the exact sextile because of the retrograde! There still is effect because they come within one degree of each other. In fact, they have been in working distance since May 9. There have been numerous ideas, abundant ideas. Learning has been worth it, teaching given, schools selected, plans made. Short journeys are fun. BUT. They will only go so far then abandoned. They may or may not be completed, likely not, or not in the way expected. Signing contracts won’t be enough to hold people to old premises. Don’t hold people to their promises. Probably had best intentions, but the winds are blowing a different direction now. Mercury won’t come back and make that sextile exact until July 3! Lot of water over the dam by then! The amps shall have been upped and what happens then will be amazingly better than what almost happened now. You will be glad after all!

 Pluto in YOD, double inconjunct, with Jupiter and Mercury! This is part of a complex planetary pattern that has been with us since February! Jupiter makes its final inconjunct with Pluto May 21, just 4 days after the New Moon! So this New Moon’s new beginnings are crucial to the conclusion of Jupiter with Pluto. Mercury in one of its own signs Gemini, adds it’s communication skills to relay what information it can, but retrogrades before all is complete. It’s as if that’s enough for now, let’s rethink, upgrade, don’t forget what we have done already….

  • Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Inconjuncts adjust, skew to the side for more awareness and perspective. They can be unsettling, but Jupiter is up for the game, loves a foray! It loves the periphery, looking afar and wide, acquiring an enhanced chest of knowledge. Life is bigger, richer. Pluto in Cap dislikes its routines being upset, but sees the advantages and is on board pretty quickly. See more!
  • Mercury Gemini inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn, won’t make the exact inconjunct with Pluto. There has been inquisitiveness, steady prolonged probing of Pluto’s secrets since the 14th due to Mercury being in Station. But Pluto knows how to hold its own with sniffy Mercury. Mercury could get close, might give old Pluto a shiver, but since Mercury retrogrades, the aspect doesn’t become exact, Pluto is saved! Mercury may try to sign the papers, but they are pulled back, put on hold, likely will be forgotten, even misplaced. Other matters take our attention, causing numerous further shiftings. An alchemy occurs and without realizing, what was, simply is no more. The exact aspect will happen down the road June 28.
 Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn does happen! Pluto in Capricorn can at times be a bit gruff, not impressed by fluff. Yet Venus in Cancer is such a Sweetie, a little melting happens, plus, she’s safely on the other side of things, and out of reach too. She’s intuitive and knows how to prod the old wise one, flirts and flatters a bit and might even bring cookies! So he listens in spite of himself, and she’s smarter than he anticipated. She knows cycles, has good business sense, wants to secure the investment, has a sense of long term. There’s history, maybe good breeding. Real estate, restauranting, children’s business and organizations will likely be successful and Pluto may decide to do some funding. Might not be an encouraging start, but stay with it, ask for what you want.

Oppositions do mean letting go, separating, as well. Could be a breakup, no more hypnotism, improper seduction, or being kept by paying your way. Standing back you may wonder what you saw there. Age may be a factor, disparity of goals, children may leave home, you may move. But remember, Mercury is retrograde tomorrow, things will change. You or they may return. If you get a new place or job during the Rx, know that it is likely temporary if a home, the job may change from what was intended.

 Chatty Mars in Gemini trine the North Node in Libra is unusually looking forward to socializing, even partnering a bit. He more often happily stands alone, simply responding as inspired, moment by moment. But now, there is the potential of another comrade in arms, one who is supportive and helps with those social graces. It could be one person or an inspiring couple living that way. The more he talks, the more thoughts are linked, the more he sees.

 Jupiter in Leo continues to close on the marvelous trine to Uranus in Aries June 22! Performance is like lightning! There is a spark in the air, engagement that warms the heart. Things are bigger and petty differences put in the live and let live category, eccentricities celebrated as gifts! Great numbers of Souls are making change, a wave of Light! See more above

Make it so.

Isla Vista Shooting Seven Dead

My dear astrological friends, today is sad for many of us in the Santa Barbara/Isla Vista CA area.

A young man, likely Elliot Rodger, son of Peter Rodger, who was an assistant director on “The Hunger Games” film series, was angry last night, in fact, angry for a long time per his previously posted YouTube video. He shot 7 people, his intention revenge, to kill women because women have rejected him. In the process he injured 13 others including a bike rider who has brain injuries and whose life is in the balance as I write. Please hold him, and all involved in your loving thoughts, and pray for the Soul of the shooter.

All astrology is not cheerful. We learn from charts of such difficult events, in hopes of prevention, sometimes avoidance of dangerous times. We hope to help those who suffer, guide the teachers and healers, parents and loved ones as possible.

1) Charts of such events usually have several factors that indicate potential violence. 2) And those charts also connect with the perpetrator’s and victim’s charts. In this case we don’t have Elliot’s birth time yet, so we don’t know all of how his personal chart was triggered to act at this time, but we now do have part of it. See his birth date chart below. 3) Even ‘good’ astrological charts don’t always connect well with some people’s charts. Currently we have a favorable Grand Water Trine in progress. In fact, today Jupiter trines Saturn! 4) Also, ironically, a favorable chart can be used to accomplish a ‘bad’ thing.

Here is the chart at the moment of the first call received at the Sheriff’s Dispatch Center, 9:27 PM (from Sheriff’s statement video).

Isla Vista Shooting 7 Dead

List of difficult factors to consider:

Sagittarius Ascendant – Can feel wronged, want vengeance
Three planets in Aries – Anger, action. Moon in Aries – Anger at women. Uranus in Aries – Unstable, loneliness, fear what you do won’t be acceptable. Venus in Aries – angry at being alone.
Uranus square Pluto – Mass murder, a ‘crazy’ hate, exacerbated extremes. Been in aspect since 2010, finishes March 2015. As it has moved along the degrees, different people and organizations have been triggered along the way.
Mars, anger, Aries’ planet, has been in station, in a standstill square (challenge without change), with Pluto, hate.
Mars has been festering in Libra six months, anger over perceived inequality, not being accepted in relationships, anger at what should be your right.
TSquare – Moon in Aries is opposite this hot hair-trigger Mars. Mars/Aries rules firearms. Moon is also square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is the planet of Death, and in Capricorn means and knows how to do serious damage.
Venus in Aries is square Black Moon Lilith. Venus in Aries wants a fight, and square Lilith, against those evil women.
Venus is at the Moon’s South Node in Aries. Raw unhealed wounds from the past can cause great pain.
Sun newly in Gemini square Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Imagination gone awry with an overload of thoughts out of control. Fear of personal failure and it never being over. Suicide.

This is quite a list of factors. Add it all together, and how it likely affected Elliot’s chart, and you see what happened. Yes, there are some positive factors, but not enough, too little, way too late. And as I said earlier, sometimes ‘good’ factors simply allow the ‘success’ of the intent, even when it is bad. And there was also heroism. Bullets flying, two employees of the 7-11 convenience store went out and pulled a woman who was shot in the leg into their store along with giving safety to 36 other people!

Elliot, quite troubled at 22, may have had bad parents; he may have had good parents. His chart is still his own chart. As we know, some Souls can rise above horrible circumstances, survive to contribute, teach, police, serve. Others are somehow just innately broken, beyond fixable.

If you have any of the factors I listed in your own chart, please do not be thinking of yourself as a mass murderer. You may recognize some of the interpretation that you, instead, have learned how to use in a good way. For example, you express your frustrations appropriately and learn how to change the conditions in your life, sometimes with the help of other experienced people. You know how to self soothe and get support.

I ask for your compassion, loving thoughts for this Soul known as Elliot. We haven’t walked in his shoes, Great Spirit. I pray that those lost may rest in peace. I pray for healing for all the injured, the witnesses, their families and friends. I pray for the officers and all helping professionals. This affects so many of us, ones who weren’t even there and may never know any of these people. Talk about it; give each other hugs. If you can help in any way, please do.

I knew it was serious when I heard all the sirens last night.

Evening May 24  We now have Elliot Rodger’s chart. Per his Manifesto, He was born the morning of July 24, 1991 in Lambeth, South London. Exact birth time not given.

Elliot Rodger May 23, 2014 Isla Vista CA Mass Murderer, Shooter

This chart is done for 6 AM, the mid of morning – between midnight and noon. I chose a zero degrees Aries ascendant due to not having the exact birth time. The Moon can be anywhere from 0 to 5 degrees Capricorn 56 minutes. His Ascendant can be anywhere from 5 Taurus 56 to 11 Libra 41. We don’t know what houses the planets are really in. He’s NOT Cancer; he calculates solidly as a Leo Sun.

It is now known that he was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and has been in the care of several therapists.

About Elliot Rodger

Sun, Jupiter, Mercury in Leo – Generous, warm hearted,very interested in romance, self learning, with a dramatic tendency, Jupiter exaggeration concern for rights and justice, can thrive in education.

Moon is in Capricorn along with Uranus and Neptune. In traditional astrology this would be considered genius/artist, an infalible intuitive, or insanity. The Moon is emotional, irrational; Uranus is unstable, friendless; Neptune is undefinable, misunderstood. In Capricorn it can imagine the worst, be depressed, never fit into ordinary daily life, in sorrow for parental approval. Sometimes Moon in Capricorn, especially with Uranus, interprets their Mother/Women to be cold, and often they are themselves.

Uranus in Capricorn is in Mutual Reception with Elliot’s Saturn in Aquarius – in each other’s signs. This doubles the potency of the power of these principles. Uranus breaks with traditional authority, or is abandoned by it. Saturn wants to corral what is likely already lost, in this case, likely his Father. Sometimes this is brilliance in science, computers, electronics.

Sun opposite Saturn in Aquarius. This too indicates a distance, separation, or perceived as such, from his Father. At minimum, they would have differing opinions and Elliot would have wished his Father really did discipline him, or the Father’s way of dealing might have been to send the boy away. Or so it seemed to Elliot, and was likely true. This would have been abandonment and a great cause of grief, a primal invisible assault on his manhood, and for a Leo man’s man that would be awful. On the other hand, when the Father tried to reach out to him, he may have shrunk away, or have been so unreachable as for the Father to give up knowing it was impossible….

Mars with Venus in Virgo. Virgo isn’t called the Virgin for nothing. The Leo part of Elliot was romantic, and saw that as a part of life to seek. At the same time, Virgo can be so self critical that they always set it up to be rejected before they ever have to be tested. Mars may come on too strong when approaching women, the admiring, affectionate kind Venus not having a chance. The more the ‘failure’ happens, the cruder and more irritable the Mars gets, then women get afraid and veer off.

Asperger’s is often associated with inappropriate behavior. I would put that more with the Moon/Uranus/Saturn combination. Uranus is considered odd, or eccentric, even asocial. In combination with the frustrated Virgo combination, Elliot could have gone from slick too smooth Leo, to scary strange guy.

In combination with the Isla Vista shooting chart

Saturn in the sky now is right where Elliot’s Pluto is and square E’s Jupiter. Saturn conjunct Pluto is one of the hardest aspects there is, for anybody. It squeezes you where it hurts when there is unfinished business you didn’t want to look at. It makes you aware of your deepest failures, the poison in your Soul. It happens once every 29 years. Saturn square Jupiter takes all the fun out of things and makes you sure you’ve been done wrong. What hope you’ve had is hard to come by. Even God has failed you, so it must be your fault. Horrible hard hitting loneliness and depression, despair. Major difficult pair of aspects.

Saturn was accompanied by the current Grand Water Trine Jupiter and Chiron, trining his Pluto. This is one of those ‘good’ aspects gone awry, making it too easy to do a bad thing, and succeeding at it. If there is going to be weeping, the water signs can do it. Jupiter makes it a big event. Chiron wounds and eventually teaches as we heal. Saturn with Pluto is finality, so we mourn our irreparable losses.

Pluto is right at Elliot’s Uranus and Neptune. Pluto is famous for going to extremes and taking 248 years to make its circuit, this would be the only time this combination would ever occur in his lifetime. Uranus can be perversions, strange attitudes. It can be 100% alone or fame/infamy. Pluto is Death, and Neptune is the Soul or Soulless. In Capricorn there can be a stone coldness, rigidity without compassion or much insight.

With Uranus square his Neptune, he didn’t know what to think any more. In some way, his Spirit was interrupted, broken, scattered. He lost his better focus that kept him with us. He wanted to be free of all this burdensome unmitigated entanglement with no connections as he would have liked them to be.

There are other aspects, and there are things we don’t know since we don’t have his birth time, but to me, these are the toppers. As to why that night? The Moon in Aries squared his Moon and Uranus in Capricorn. That’s a classic all hell breaks loose combination and is common in divorces. The events are often sudden and shocking. The entire attack took place in 10 minutes.

Some would say these are troubles of a young Soul. Society works to help, tries to assimilate with some success. It might take many lifetimes. And in some ways, his troubles are our troubles, both in ourselves and in Society. Please see the Guardian’s …Misogyny Kills, about Elliot’s part in this social issue.

GrandMother Moon - Watcher, Hunter, Nurturer, Bringer of Cycles

3:14 AM Pacific, Jan 1, New Year’s NEW MOON 10 CP 57

See Full Moon!

Ending of 2013, beginning of 2014.  Ending of 2013 lunar cycles, beginning of 2014 lunar cycles.

January has two New Moons, the first in Capricorn, the 2nd on Jan 30 at 10 Aquarius 55! The 2nd one is the day before Chinese New Year’s day, so both January New Moons fall at a New Year! Jan 30 is also the day before Venus turns direct, and Jupiter makes its 2nd opposition Jupiter!

Children born on 2014’s New Year’s Day New Moon will have a FIVE planets Stellium in Capricorn! The Sun, Moon, Pluto, Mercury are in tight formation, 10, 11, and 12 degrees, while Venus is off by herself at 26 degrees!

The New Moon sequence involves SIX planets and has already started as of Dec 14, doesn’t finish until Jan 8 – 10! The New Moon is in super potent conjunction with Pluto, and within one degree square Mars, Mars still closely separating its opposition with Uranus. Sun, Moon and Mercury are all on their way to oppose Jupiter, making this a CARDINAL GRAND SQUARE aspect pattern!  They finish their oppositions Jan 5; Mars finishes the entire sequence, with its square to Jupiter,  Jan 8. For more details and interpretation, see T Square, Grand Square, Stellium – Holiday Planning! Since Mars and Pluto figure prominently, be cautious with tempers – yours or someone else’s. Be ready and able to walk away quickly, because for some things there will be no forgiveness. Said.

Dec 14, Mars starts the opposition with Uranus, becoming exact Christmas morning 33 minutes after midnight. Time to step into new exciting connections!
Dec 29 Mercury, then Sun, square Uranus – shoulda thought of that long ago…changes everything!
Dec 30 Mars squares Pluto – cautious but progressive, be soothing and honorably surrender.
Dec 31 Mercury conjuncts Pluto, squares Mars – information, secrets, strong reactions.
Jan 1, 2014 NEW MOON! Sun conjuncts with MOON, then Pluto, Jan 2 squares Mars – molten lava!
Jan 5 Sun, Moon and Mercury finish their oppositions with Jupiter – lively exchanges, live and let live.
Jan 8 Mars square Jupiter – big mojo, breakthroughs, legal and physical caution!

What remains is the ongoing Uranus square Pluto that we have been having since 2010.

The Stellium, Grand Square, are in Cardinal signs, noted for moving things right along.  So much for the quiet New Moon.  Yet, you can still take time outs – meditation, a walk at a sacred place, even a midday nap, have a sit with your bucket list.  Request it, plan it.  Take some moments for gratitude and make it a point to acknowledge the people around you for their efforts.  Walk this Earth in Beauty.

  • Pluto in Capricorn intensifies your desire, brings a determined and invincible stand for the most you can be.  Capricorn seeks synchronicity, the way to build, to make it so.
  • Uranus in Aries is bold and creative beyond words.  Jot down your ideas!
  • Jupiter in Cancer, cherishes the support of family and community, nurtures the spark!
  • Mars in Libra instigates new partnerships, opens doors that were not thought possible!  Divine intervention!
  • Mother Moon and Father Sun, in Union, merge the qualities of Light, both the Shadow, and the bright of Day.  Of all the New Moons of the year, this one will have the longest Night.
  • Mercury, one of Kokopelli’s dancers, takes that bucket list of yours and tells the tale!  Seek working connections.  Plant your Seeds of Spirit in fertile places at the right time. Be careful of exaggerations, avoid tempers and being too dry.

The Grand Square has 3 runaway type planets!  Uranus  is in Mars’ sign Aries, and loves, loves, loves freedom! Mars loves independence and spontaneity! Jupiter roams the world, the nomad carrying the teaching light, the burning campfire coals of inspiration. Granted, it is now in Cancer, the home lover, but the twitch is there….  All that Capricorn says you have to pay the bills, build the temple, work the program. It’s all good. A stable foundation can give you peace of mind, a safe place to return to, whether it is a place or a person! A good job or business can provide funding for frolicking! Longings take us across thresholds, inspire us across gaps, create new links!

Please note that Venus is Retrograde! Many choices you make will not be permanent. Sometimes that’s a big Thank God; you were saved from yourself! Give them time to mature, expect changes, invite them!

Let your journeys take you in perfect harmony with new and old!

Capricorn 2014 New Moon Astrology Horoscope Chart

8:52 PM Pacific, Jan 15, FULL MOON  25 Cancer 58 

At 25 degrees, this is a stand-alone Full Moon, though it is in league with Black Moon Lilith at 24 Cancer. A Moon with a wild Moon in the Moon’s own sign!  And there is plenty of emphasis in opposite Capricorn, having Pluto, Venus and Sun there. Venus is still retrograde, not giving up, focusing on Capricorn values and needs, organizing for results. The Cancer Capricorn axis is alive, balancing home and career, Mothering and Fathering, intuition and real-time laws. There is a profound quality about it since we all have an instinct to care for each other, and survive as elegantly as possible. We are called to be Woman, gentle and generous nurturers, Wild and untamed, h/earth keeper, guardian of the children of the Future. Venus calls for us Women to have strength, beauty and wisdom in the Marketplace, as single Moms, with our chosen warrior men in a good way. Capricorn is a sign with a twinkle in its eye, creating and pouncing on new footing while foraging along the Path, taking opportunity where it can. Steady progress can be made for simply moving forward with the times, dedicated moment by moment.

What we do have is an action-wanting Cardinal T Square. Though it won’t make an exact complete pattern, it is in the wind. Venus Rx will square Mars the next day, Jan 16, but Venus doesn’t retrograde fast enough to oppose Jupiter, though it gets very close! Venus, especially in Capricorn, wants to mind its manners, smooth the way for collaboration and enterprise.  Mars in Libra (one of Venus’ signs) is trying too, and may succeed. The action may be to initiate connections, forge new relationships that Venus in Cap may be too shy to try. Mars needs to be a little more genteel, use finesse, or Venus may back out, appearing to be undependable, even lazy. She may need to do things in her own time. But if Venus can’t keep up, Mars may be better off to keep on going on his own. This could be a first encounter, get to know each other better, maybe, very maybe, try again later time. Better for business than love?

Gone but not forgotten. Though the chart shows a Grand Square (red lines), the planets are leaving the formation now, not coming into formation like the New Moon chart was. The aspects are moving apart and beyond, from Uranus at 8 degrees, Pluto at 11, Jupiter truckin’ off at 14 (though retrograding back to oppose Pluto again), and Mars, forging ahead, is well past the Uranus square Pluto degrees, with Mars now at 17. As the planets move along, each morsel gets integrated from the culmination of the set, each in its own time, in its own way. If you have planets at these later degrees, they may be triggered. If you have a LOT of planets at 13 to 17, and not at 7 to 12, it may be more intense for you now than it was at the New Moon! Uranus in Aries is the wild card-carrying the coals of Spirit, delights us with surprises that move us! Pluto in Capricorn delves deep whether looking for oil or tending the subconscious. There is no escape from its slithery eye; we are transformed. Jupiter in Cancer convinces us we are safe, and cooks a feast to reassure us. All the components are at hand, and education inspires us. We can do it!  Mars in Libra, frisky and risky, jumps across the chasm, charms his way into new shenanigans that are just plain fun and sometimes funny! C’est la vie!

Retrogrades are an elegant form of changing your perspective!

Dec 21, Capricorn Day, Winter Solstice Day, Yule to many, starts a series of virtually back to back Retrogrades beginning with Venus! Jan 31, 2013, she directs, turns forward, on Chinese New Year Day, the same day as Jupiter opposes Pluto the second time of three. What you want motivates the set.

Feb 6 to 28, Mercury is next. He retrogrades from 3 Pisces back to 18 Aquarius. We have the qualities of the two signs to consider, as well as the nature of their connection with each other. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections.  Water signs follow air signs, bringing a nurturing quality that keeps those ideas and connections alive and thriving!

Mar 1 to May 19, Mars retrogrades in Libra, making his stay in Libra more than 6 months, from Dec 7, 2013 to July 25, 2014!

Such a continuous sequence will likely try our patience. Or, knowing it’s coming, be ready to ride!  Segue is the dance or it will be a bit of a bumpy ride. Invite and celebrate changes when you can. Look for values at every turn. Small test trials will save time in the long run. Be prepared to integrate as you go. Have flexible employees or put them in charge for this period of time. Keep current with regular council meetings; listen to everybody, especially the quiet ones, especially the accountant! Let go of resistance when possible. Think sequentially. Blessings in advance!

Venus, Mercury, Mars  That’s the planetary sequence. Love leads. Mind mediates. Max action finishes. In very simple terms, what do you want, let people know, take action!  With lovers it might go like this: be attracted, love me; chat me up/get to know me; let’s get up close and personal!  That could be quite reasonable over 6 months+ that Mars is in Libra.  In business: check out this project I’ve always wanted to do, costs and possible returns over what period of time; a flurry of research yielding mixed but intriguing results; let’s get started though all the info isn’t in yet, it looks to be worth a chance, let’s get some contributing partners with solid connections. Pay close attention to your own intuitive thinking about this sequence.

The signs are Capricorn, Pisces/Aquarius, and Libra.

  • Venus is conservative, determined, in Capricorn, yet at times shy and afraid of being unworthy. Capricorn is usually unruffled, but at others, depressed with a low threshold and need for more rest.  Human. Entice them with what has true value and that they personally love. Venus in the last of the Earth signs knows intrinsic timeless beauty and can create it!
  • Mercury is softened in its square and opposite sign Pisces. Mercury, generally a linear thinker, can be seemingly useless in imaginative Pisces, but being relaxed, at rest, it is free to roam the ethers. Pisces is highly amorphic, a wandering observer, unfocused, so often sees a greater picture, images upon images overlaying time, visionary. It perceives fleeting connections of fragile natures. It puts things together that the average thinker would never see.
  • Mercury is at home, genius, in Aquarius, the last of the air signs. It is also incredibly imaginative as in Pisces, but more creator, inventor! It links disparate factors, rearranges, delights in waking up the sleeping masses! It’s the #1 Sign of different, oblique. Its talent with computers and programs is legendary, and its capacity to link humans worldwide is a boon to humankind! Flight is one of its mediums.
  • Mars in Libra happens only once every 2 years. In the old days, Libra was the Alchemist, dross to gold! We seek what’s beautiful, what glows in the dust and cobwebs of human imperfection. It responds to opportunities of a moment. We generally think in terms of seeking balance, gracefulness. But in fighting, the winner is often the one who forces imbalance! Let your stance be alive, spiritually nimble. Recover, dance, as you are swept off your spot, quickly adapt to the new one!

Retrograde is an astronomical term for review!  Quite naturally, as we recross previous ground, we see our misses, mistakes, have gotten new informations and, of course, we sensibly update! Better and better. Though we are happy with results, those of us that like our routines, go a little crazy, and sometimes we lose it when we get overwhelmed, when too much different happens day after day. Some of us lose sleep and get downright cranky. Delegate if you can, but check in frequently, especially when they are just getting started. It’s amazing how much can happen in a short time of misunderstanding, right?!

As always, in retrograde sequences, consider the financial consequences if you change your mind. Is it returnable, undoable? Is it insured? Get signatures every step of the way, dated signatures on all changes. If you decide to give the bull a retrograde ride, start a project in this time, will your budget allow the time it will take, and the inevitable changes? Do you accept that?

Planetary Backdrop 

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

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

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

Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

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


Wedge to Cardinal Grand Square

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

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

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

April 20 2014 Grand Cardinal Square Venus Astrology Chart

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

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

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

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

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

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

Aug, Sep Jupiter Makes Three Inconjuncts 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two Sign Changes, Fire Signs Leo & Sagittarius!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Retrogrades

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

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



Stelliums – Powerful Gatherings of Planets

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

4 Planet Stelliums:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yule Queen by marvelous artist  Nadezhda Strelkina, calls her Faery.

I call her the Yule Queen.  Her painter, Nadezhda Strelkina, calls her Faery.

Wishing you all the sweetest Holiday Season!
Love, Health, Happiness….wonder, gratitude.

Dec 14 to Dec 31  Mars, Sun, Mercury Cardinal TSquare
Dec 21 to Jan 2  Holiday Capricorn Stellium
Dec 31 to Jan 8 Cardinal Grand Cross!

Get your shamanic shoes on, machinery in good working order, and all your tools handy!  Build the threshold to your new life! Dance through the 2014 Gateway!

During Sagittarius 2012 Mars was in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, activating the Uranus square Pluto. Sagittarius 2013 Mars was in Virgo and Libra.  In Libra it will first be forming a Cardinal TSquare with the continuing Uranus square Pluto, then as Jupiter meets it retrograde, a GRAND CROSS starts to be formed Dec 31!  Mars, the Number 1 fire planet burns away the dross to bring purity.

Dec 7 Mars, the Aries planet, entered Libra, Aries’s opposite sign, one of Venus’s signs! Opposites, separation, at the same time as integration and synthesis. The practice is have both skills:  to allow letting go, separation, and to cooperate with dignity and respect to each other. Could be a bit fiery as they circle each other, assessing, getting safe, learning the best approaches. The goal is an active Peace. It’s time to learn some new social skills, make some new friends or reawaken the old or abandoned ones! Time for new connections that are exciting and breathe the Spirit back into us! It’s a renewal of what’s pure and fresh!

Just a week later, Dec 14, Mars started activating the Uranus square Pluto. Since 2010 this square has been upon us, changing world financial and political conditions dramatically.  Some are tired, discouraged, afraid; others have thrived, having been in position to prosper during the hard times, or their expertise IS survival! And there are many businesses that do thrive in hard times.  Mars in Libra, a sign of balance, seeks a re-positioning, a new strategy, more courageous connections, leadership.  Change is possible when we pull together, but do still indeed follow our own instincts, making others excited to follow our lead!  It may be a small beginning, just like Apple from a garage, but the Lights are ON!  Mars is the Sword of Fire!

Dec 17 is our Capricorn Full Moon – Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Cancer.  Let the resources from our pasts, our families, our genes and culture, bring remembrance of times primordial that we can call on for Wisdom. Whether elders or ones on the Other Side, even from past lives, we can find ourselves being nurtured to build and succeed as relics that no longer serve crumble to free our space to move forward.  Hold each other’s hands and take the steps to new times. After the culmination of the Full Moon, we get thoughtful and a bit more internal, on our way through to the New Year’s Day Capricorn New Moon.

Holiday Stellium Dates:

  • Dec 21, Winter Solstice Day, the Sun starts the Capricorn Stellium!  At first there are only three planets, the Sun, Venus (retrogrades at almost 29 Capricorn this day), and Pluto.
  • Dec 24, Christmas Eve, Mercury enters Capricorn, making it a four planets stellium.  From here, there is an intense sequence of aspects through Jan 2, 2014.
  • Dec 31 to Jan 2, the Moon is in Capricorn, making it a 2+ days FIVE planet Capricorn stellium!

Capricorn Stelliums Capricorn is a fine upstanding sign, proud of its accomplishments. It can be a most dedicated hard worker, prodigious producer. And it can kick up it’s heels, (ever seen baby goats play?) and frolic! They are sure footed, accurate in their steps, so can take certain chances like an adept! Other times they are fairly cautious, rely on tried and true rules, the weight on smart proven choices. This stellium could serve to keep the other planets more in line – Mars who leaps without looking, Jupiter that doesn’t dream they could fail, Uranus that free falls, Pluto that’s obsessed! Cap looks them in the eye and expects them to tow the mark. That can come as a relief when the others are at their edge, and just a word can reel them in, save them from themselves! Whew! Back to reality! If things get too out of hand, they are self-preservationist. If you see a Capricorn run, you go too, right behind them!

  • Dec 25, Christmas Day, Mars, and Moon, oppose Uranus in Aries.  The Moon makes it a SIX planet TSquare, activates the TSquare all day by opposing Uranus, conjuncting Mars, squaring Pluto.  See the chart below.
  • Dec 29 Mercury and Sun square Uranus  Wild or conservative?!  Who, me?
  • Dec 30 Mars squares Pluto, and moves into 5 degree range of square to Jupiter making a Cardinal GRAND CROSS! A considered, measured presentation, protection, or caution be damned!
  • Dec 31 Mercury conjuncts Pluto and squares Mars.  A dangerous risk, possible consequences, or you pounce on an opportunity of the moment with no regrets!    
  • Jan 1, 2014  Sun conjuncts Pluto  Once a year, the gate is open to the deepest dark, most powerful, the Phoenix!  Hang on for the ride, Kundalini awakening!
  • Jan 2, 2014  Sun squares Mars  Oops, the Devil made me do it!  Could be embarrassing, yet secretly the most fun in years!
  • Jan 5, Sun opposes Jupiter  Too, too much, and not enough!  What did you say?!
  • Jan 8 Mars squares Jupiter  Truth or dare!  Dancing in the streets, let’s run away!  NO fights.

Mars, and Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries, throw in the heat!  Mars is usually straight forward, but Uranus throws in the tricks, the unexpected! This can be the surprise party, or the accident in your driveway!  Some may refrain from flights since Uranus rules planes and squares are often challenges.  Pluto is the price, and it may not be to your liking, or there may be an amazing reduction!

Mars and Uranus are independents. Mars prefers to do whatever whenever. Uranus just likes freedom. But, Uranus also rules friendships, and Pluto likes the deepest, most intimate relationships, in Capricorn, especially those of long standing. Mars in Libra wants to see how things are these days. Is it too binding, or has the old bond fizzled? Or is it taking on a new life? Uranus loves change and old fashioned chaos, very entertaining for someone who gets bored easily, so it may say some off the wall thing just to get things going!  Oh, my. Hang onto our socks!  And this over the holidays! Try to keep the troublemakers far, far apart – definitely not at the same party! See them separately if you suspect any morsel of possible disagreements or misbehavior, unless, Ha!, you are the protagonist and you decide it all needs to happen!

Pluto in Capricorn knows the rules and may be called in to ref. It’s not scared of those rowdies, and everyone knows not to upset Pluto. They are the ninjas. If you shame or embarrass them by your unspeakable behavior, you may lose them as a friend.  No amount of amends will recover your connection with them. They just don’t trust you anymore.  Ok.  So you get it. If you think YOU are the person who might misbehave, wait for another time, or have your walking shoes in your mind and be ready to leave, let things go. This is one of those holidays to not talk about religion, politics, or engage in malicious gossip. Without a moment’s hesitation, walk away.

Squares by nature break things up, break down resistances, break through, ultimately build solidly. It’s just the getting there that keeps you up all night, and on your toes!

The astrological chart below is for Christmas Day at 2:40 PM Pacific when the Moon opposes Uranus, is closely conjunct Mars.  This could be a powder keg, be careful with the pepper!  You might want to break tradition and have an early evening gathering rather than morning or midday.  In the chart below, I’ve removed other aspects so you can easily see the SIX planets TSquare.

New Year’s Eve, Dec 31 to Jan 8 Cardinal Grand Cross! Dec 31 Mars comes into range of squaring Jupiter as well as its square to Pluto and opposition with Uranus!  Taking on these 3 outer planets may be akin to David and Goliath, but have no doubt, Mars will warrior his way against the odds!  Mars is confident, doesn’t even think of the odds.  He just responds, goes straight ahead, has a hot quick temper when riled!  Jupiter is sure he can do it, and a little tussle could be just a friendly fight, at first.  Jupiter, though usually friendly, if confronted and falsely accused, or if it is the principle of the matter, can be mighty fast on his feet with a heck of a lot of forward momentum and a kick like a mule!  Be careful about what you do and say this New Year’s night.  Party with a partner, carefully with people you trust, in a safe setting, with a dependable vehicle – or call a cab for sure.  Have the courage to be independent in a good way.  If someone needs you, be their first responder, bring water for the flames, have mercy.  Make sure everyone gets home ok.  We love you and want your dear company in 2014!  Blessed be!

Happy Holidays!  Make sensible holiday choices – be safe, eat well, get plenty of rest, stand tall, laugh and Love it uP!

As always, remember, if the planet degrees, in this case 4 to 12 degrees, don’t activate your chart, these holiday challenges may have little effect on you.
