Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Moon-Jupiter Baker Paul Hollywood Great British Bake Off

This isn’t the most fabulous decadent cake I had picked out for you. I decided to give you a baker instead!

Paul Hollywood started out at home in his father’s bakery as a teenager, and his grandfather was head baker at The Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool! Though a Pisces, he has the Moon, cooking – the planet of Cancer, conjunct his Jupiter of fame and fortune! They are in Gemini, so Jupiter the traveler has taken him to many (Gemini) places, including being head baker at a number of hotels, including The Dorchester, Chester Grosvenor and Spa and the Cliveden Hotel. He then left the UK for Cyprus, where he worked at two resorts and met his scuba instructor wife Alexandra!

His Saturn, Chiron and Mars, together in Pisces, are trine Neptune in Scorpio, so he can take, and dish out, quite a bit of heat in the kitchen! Since the show launched in 2010, Hollywood has been a judge on the BBC program The Great British Bake Off. In this capacity, he has been described as the “antidote” to judges such as Len Goodman or Simon Cowell in other reality television programs, on account of his straightforward and honest manner and because his judging is restricted purely to the finished product. The show is now in its 7th series!

And, of course, Paul speaks at several food festivals, including the Cumbrian Food Festival, and the BBC Good Food Show and the Cake and Bake Show, both in London.

Fun for a Baker! In 2008, Hollywood created an almond and roquefort sourdough recipe that was said to be the most expensive bread in Britain. The roquefort was supplied from a specialist in France at £15 per kilo (that’s $19+ per 2 lbs +), while the flour for the bread was made by a miller in Wiltshire. Hollywood describes it as a “Rolls-Royce of loaves”.

As you might expect, with Moon/Jupiter, Paul, ‘The King of Bakes’ is a generous Soul. Paul is a keen supporter of the Pilgrims Hospices. Sep 2015 is just one example. He made a guest appearance to encourage home baking enthusiasts taking part in their Wingham farm shop Gibsons Big Cake Bake fundraiser. Contestants entered their best bake, be it a cake, cookie, cupcake, tray bake for local judges to see and taste.He is also successful at his other love, motor racing! In 2015 Hollywood began his racing career, making his debut in the Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT4. Hollywood raced with Andrew Howard, founder of Beechdean Dairies – probably a foodie friend, right?! The pair qualified second in the Britcar Trophy Championship’s first round at Silverstone taking second in class in both races. Hollywood competed at Le Mans in 2015, in the Aston Martin festival. And also competed in GT Cup with Jonny Adam and finished 1st in class.

Every week, Paul shares a new recipe online as well as blogging about his experiences and future plans. More of Hollywood’s recipes are available in his books, which include 100 Great Breads, The Weekend Baker and How To Bake. And he sells his own range of merchandise online. He’s doing ok – worth almost 13M. Check him out! And do bring us all a loaf of bread you baked yourself!

Cancer 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Summer Triangle Vega Deneb Altair

Start looking for it now, mid June! See the Summer Triangle as a great big “V” for vacation!  It is most prominent during the summer season. Three stars in three constellations mark its points – Vega in Lyra the Harp, Deneb in Cygnus the Swan, and Altair in Aquila the Eagle.

Bruce McClure poetically writes: ‘Once you master the Summer Triangle, you can always locate the Milky Way on a clear, dark night. How about making the most of a dark summer night to explore this band of stars – this starlit boulevard abounding with celestial delights? Use binoculars to reel in the gossamer beauty of it all, the haunting nebulae and star clusters of a midsummer night’s dream!’

At nightfall in summer, look for the brightest star in your eastern sky. That’s Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra the Harp. Look to the lower left of Vega for another bright star – Deneb, the brightest in the constellation Cygnus the Swan and the third brightest in the Summer Triangle. Look to the lower right of Vega to locate the Summer Triangle’s second brightest star Altair.

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

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

Cancer 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. The last aspect, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune has been and is in a one degree station May 17, retrograde, to July 4, direct/forward! The final set of six starts with this July 4 aspect. In forward order, the set of six finishes 11/11!

Cancer 2017, the 48 days Jupiter inconjunct Neptune finishes. 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.

The Aug 4 Jupiter square Pluto is the next last aspect of the now forward set of six that started Oct 2016.

The upcoming Lunar sequence is profound! There are two new Moons in LEO, the second is the amazing US Total Solar Eclipse!

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Cancer 2017 –  July 2018!

Cancer Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland

A magical walk in time……….Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland 

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Cancer’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! Pluto is opposite Cancer, calling on that immortal strength of the Mother. There is a look at the depths of feelings, their reality, their roots. Feelings we have outgrown are weeded out, feelings we keep are cleansed and reorganized more appropriately to current times. Children are threatened or protected; businesses are ended, sold, or fortified. Security and financial matters need tending. Death could be nearby. Don’t be seduced by suave masters, inappropriate relationships. There will be consequences that might not be able to be fixed or forgiven. Do check in with your astrologer for your whole personal picture.

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. Cancer and Neptune can make profound art, music of the Soul! Cancer loves genealogy, a look at the Past, and Neptune can be the guide through the labyrinth! This may be a sweet time to find your spiritual home, make sacred connections, make a meditation space or have a private studio. You may find yourself where the river meets the sea, get a home with a view of the lake, a houseboat! Blended smoothies could become your favorite food!

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! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Cancer doesn’t always like rowdy changes, but is interested in gathering scholarly information to make the changes the best possible. Uranus rules the world community, and Cancer rules the local community, family unity. Cancer is a sub model and quite personally knows about the ins and outs of family workings. Uranus stirs that system to extend its relationships, try different techniques, rethink financial methods and food sources. Fears can vaporize, curiosity becomes wonder!

Uranus in Taurus is a lot easier on the Cancer nervous system. There is less rush, more settling, common sense. Taurus is also food oriented. Natural and organic is wonderful. Overeating is a danger, a delicious danger. Those new recipes Uranus brought are scrumptious. Taurus prefers safe and dependable finances just like Cancers do, and the new techniques really work! Relationships that have time to grow and bloom as friendships first is very comfortable, and they are likely to be with a person you meet in your own community. There is a mutual sharing and camaraderie. They are unique and talented people that spice your life in a pleasing way. Some of your new friends may come on the scene bringing unusual animals and pets to your location. 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. Cancer is that quick too! The healing is sensitive and can run deeper into your Spirit than any time ever before. It can free you to make adult relationships that leave the errors of your parents behind, especially your Mom. Childishness falls away and your new level natural fit is blessed. Both Chiron and Cancer like to do business, but Pisces adds the need to do what you totally love! Art, music, cheffing, schooling, parenting, beautiful interior design, antiques, genealogy! Having your own business, stock trading!

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 is not usually Cancer’s favorite, but sometimes we need the prod, the encouragement to attempt our new ideas! School is less personal; mentors and therapists know us well and won’t let us get away with denial or staying in fear. There may be a feeling of pressure as Chiron activates your personal degrees, and that means it’s working! Back off of spicy hot foods, be cautious of cuts, take care of fevers/infections right away.

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through July 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn is askew, inconjunct Cancer. Saturn is the planet of Capricorn, the sign opposite Cancer. There is an invitation to follow off to the side, to cross the bridge and take the turn. Cancer just wants to stay home. Saturn has a hard time resisting trying to Father Cancer, the sign of women and children, especially when they are at home. It’s an instinct. They want to protect. Saturn wants to build the best for Cancers though at times that can feel limiting, like when they want to change your plans too! Need to talk it over or it feels heavy handed to a sensitive Cancer. Sometimes it seems there are too many facts and rules for their intuitive preferences. Other times it makes them feel secure that hardworking Saturn is there for them. Small quarters can be cozy or confining. Cold is not so good for snuggly Cancers who also like cooking in a warm kitchen! Cancer may be sad when Saturn needs to go off on business trips, but reunions are sweet when some new recipes are brought back, even if they are foreign, along with a kitchen gift!

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! Cancer is one of the best business signs! They will relish the practical tips Saturn has to share. Saturn will help with time management, laws, accounting percentages, ROI, getting projects in on time! They will also help you curb your diet! In relationships be cautious you don’t fall for a Daddy or for fame rather than an equal partner. The partner you pick will likely have an excellent reputation and is quite accomplished. Your own Father or an elder may become important in a meaningful way.

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. Cancer is generally traditional and though can be gossipy, still feels there are personal matters that are nobody’s business but your own. Jupiter doesn’t give it at though, and in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Cancer’s Moms and family before them gave them theirs and they protect those special connections. Go gently if you are invading home territory of another. Sometimes Jupiter can share with a big smile and with the utmost manners make you feel everything they and you have so say is a treasure. That works. You can be invited to marvelous parties and come home tired and happily overwhelmed, sampled everything, ate too much. This is likely a love ’em and leave ’em relationship potential. They leave. Super business ideas, big job offered maybe – if you travel with them, but more likely you will be grateful for the information and take them to the airport….

Jupiter in Scorpio and Cancer can do business! Jupiter brings backers. It can start as a hometown business and become a corporation! This can be a fertile combination, a partnership, personal or business, that can last a lifetime. Intimacy can be irresistible, deep, poignant and potent – children for sure and a big home to live in! In this case there could be a home away from home, and the business have branch locations. Jupiter in Scorpio will forever have secrets even though Jupiter is open and the TruthTeller. Scorpio never tells all. At least get a credit check. And watch out for schemes or bigamy. Jupiter in Scorpio can appear sleazy or big-eyed honest and not be, or be hero journalists who reveal all! On the healing front they can be phenomenal! Extraordinary therapists, researchers, soul cleansing, forgiveness, PTSD healers, hospice saints. They tackle some of the toughest work needed. They can demand a lot of us and we may think we could never truly measure up. If we finally find the Soul that is as intense as we are, it is an incredible blessing.

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.

Here’s the coming Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Cancer, the Art of Families

Cancer Old Family Homestead New Salem, MA

Old family homestead with Apple Trees at a New Salem MA

Cancer is really about the special people we love – babies to elders. Our past is made up of many dear people from cultures all over the world. We have images of some of them, and antiques and mementos that mean so much to us.

Families are like a human tapestry of time. There are the elders that learned from their elders, their Grandmas and Grandpas. There are the parents that learned from theirs, and add their own ways with insights of the times they live in. They leave some ways behind, preserve and carry forward what they see as the core goodness that makes life flow well. Children watch with innocence, absorbing some of the bad along with the good, each a unique reservoir of Spirit. They are a mixture, a blend, that is the potency of a new generation. They have dreams, sometimes without even consciously knowing what the dreams are, a result of what happened before them. Some dreams are the dreams of their culture, some of their dreams are generated from their own vitality, forging a new generation that their children will then carry forward.

It’s an intricate and sensitive process. For every person it is unique. Sometimes we are so different than our forebears and family, a Mother’s comfort is all there is. Sometimes we find a mentor that understands us, feels most of what we feel, listens. Together, as cycles flow, years go by, we accomplish so much. There are amazing achievements, often documented by beautiful watercolors, photography, designs, quilts. We become the engineers of life!

Cancers make excellent teachers. First they show us the basics – how to feed ourselves, what’s good to eat, how to keep clean, do our household chores, how to do for and love one another. That’s utterly important. It safeguards our entry into the greater world around us. Ever scholarly, the learning continues lifelong. A Cancer holds a wealth of knowledge.

As we grow, our skills start shaping. Many share family businesses. Some work we do because it is life maintenance, rent to be paid, and some we do because it is our passion to do so. We have verve, a natural intelligence for it. People see that about us and want to do thriving business with us. We are good at it and we become more of ourselves, have a fullness, a wellspring of fertile richness. With that strength we develop a greater ability to care for others, bring them forward in their lives as well, blessing us all! We become a contributing person in our community, a respected leader.

In many communities there is a natural goodness and diversity, a unity that creates a greater culture that encourages kindness to all. The community has the abundance to afford to welcome strangers who in turn make their contributions that increase that abundance even further! Travelers are often surprised and deeply pleased how much we who seem so different are so much alike. We become special people to them and they to us.

Relationships we form are tender and forever. We share shelter in storms, tend each other when there are tummy troubles, nurse the orphans. Intimacy is productive, babies flourish. Big families often. If not, adoptions are made. If your partner is a Cancer, be sure to snuggle and cuddle frequently. If they get crabby once in awhile, love them up! Feelings hurt? Listen, let them know how sorry you are they feel badly. If you messed up, apologize and make amends as promptly as possible. Amends means, breakfast in bed, perhaps a favorite sweet treat. Chocolate cake and ice cream, or cookies you made yourself would do nicely. Smile.

We are making the future right now as we speak. Our children have our pictures. We carry the gift of a lifetime’s experience that we have blessed them with.

Be ever proud of and grateful for what held you in its arms, the principles of your People. Be loving to the dear humans who love you as well as they can. Pass that love on.

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans!

Pisces Joanne Woodward YoungPisces Joanne Woodward Senior

2.27.1930 Pisces, Joanne Gignilliat Trimmier Woodward! Numerologist’s delight! LOOK at all those double letters and three letters twice in her last name! Doing the Three Faces of Eve was an easy feat for her! That and being a Pisces chameleon!

Pisces is a sweet lovely sign, though even when Pisceans smile there is a wee bit of a sad cast to their eyes. Their empathy is far more than for any one person; they see the sorrows of the world. But with Venus conjunct her Sun, Joanne was and is a standout beauty! From starlet to white haired senior, she has worn her age well. Capricorn rising didn’t give her and old look, but a wise look. Though considered an ‘old’ sign, they often soften and look younger than their age in elder times. Her Jupiter is in Gemini in good aspect with her Sun. Jupiter is a warm spirited teacher. Gemini scintillates, has instant perception, the gift of an array of voices, is forever young!

Jupiter in Gemini also has an uncanny intelligence to see the outcomes of several futures and picks the one that gives the best return. She sure did with Paul Newman! They were married 50 years, and you can believe they had sympatico charts! Both have Capricorn Ascendants. Her Moon and other factors are in his Sun sign Aquarius; his Moon is right with her Sun Pisces! What bonds. There are other great aspects as well, plus favorable declination combinations to back it all up!

Ever learning, in 1990, Woodward graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, along with her daughter Clea! Newman delivered the commencement address, during which he said he dreamed that a woman had asked, “How dare you accept this invitation to give the commencement address when you are merely hanging on to the coattails of the accomplishments of your wife?”

Philanthropy is a strong suit for savior Pisceans and humanitarian Aquarians. In 1988, Newman and Woodward established the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a nonprofit residential summer camp, and year-round center named after the Wyoming mountain hideaway of the outlaws in Newman’s film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The camp, located in Ashford, Connecticut, provides services to 20,000 children and their families coping with cancer, and other serious illnesses and conditions, free of charge.

Joanne has won Best Actress at the Academy Awards, at the Cannes Film Festival, and two Emmys as well! Quite a woman. Wishing her continued successes.

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Pisces! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Pisces is a couple of signs beyond, as sensitive and flowing as Pluto in Cap is intense and sharp! That doesn’t mean Pisces doesn’t get things done. It is so intuitive it saves time, so Capricorn loves that guidance. When Pisces needs a leg up, Pluto senses the need for an overhaul, and Capricorn lends a hand step by step. They have all seen their share of difficulties and are powerful in their responses. Sometimes Pluto and Cap get lost in their moneys and reputation, but Pisces reminds them it has to mean something more or the Soul left behind gets dim. When they all team up, Spirit prevails.

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. The Sun’s annual course lends Light to subtle places, our vision is brightened. We stand a little taller, think of ourselves as a beacon in the storms, a master of the tides of Being. Neptune’s immersion makes us know we are all a part of each other. Neptune’s rise on a sea swell lifts us to see glimpses of the possibilities. As we rise and fall, we carry the understanding among us, as natural cycles unfold and at the same time, we are carried further and further into realms we never knew existed. We can be a tidal torrent or in silent suspension. When the Sea is calm, there is a peace beyond anything, anywhere, anytime. We are so still, we can feel ourselves, who and what we truly are.

Neptune brings a pure fusion of choate being. What you denied before becomes apparent. Old seams unravel as the tides of spirit rift the veils. The whole truth seeps in, then pours through us. We are washed clean, freed from residues of what even an old Soul thinks is true. Revelation becomes a verb, and we forevermore know now how to use this technique of evolution. The awakening of Aquarius becomes the seeing of Pisces. Some of this happens gradually over years of time, water over stone; other times it is the Miracle in a moment.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius and Pisces is the next sign. Aries is the sign after Pisces. Uranus makes the bold proposal. Pisces is not really surprised, but may miss a beat with the wild lightening approach! It absorbs and records the frequency, the vibration, noting its instinctual preliminary reaction. Some think of Pisces as a pushover wimp, but I would respect them. Though generally kindly, if they feel abused, back to the wall, you may find yourself at the bottom of a wave being pounded, or subtly undermined and you never find out where from…. Word to the wise. If your ideas are understood and appreciated, they will give you everything they have got to help save the world!

Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Pisceans are feeling the old mythological pains, of body or psyche. They are being called to learn how to heal, often in difficult seemingly hopeless situations. Teaching often entails the healer learning when to let go, move on to plant seeds in fertile ground. Business depends on whether it is Soul inspiring. Otherwise it is a drudgery to Spirit and escapism prevails. Sensitive Pisceans usually do better with partners who are in supportive and encouraging accord, in clean and gentle surroundings, rather than dark confrontive situations requiring constant recovery. Chiron can knock you down, pick you up, and bring a remarkable life!

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016 as it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof. In Sagittarius it is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Sagittarius squares Pisces, a challenge. Pisces can be elusive and illusive while Saturn wants conclusive. Pisces can see right through Saturn’s insecurities, why they need to be so in control. It may take awhile, but Saturn sees that the world doesn’t come to a halt when things, people, don’t go as planned. A little leeway opens doors! Sag likes traveling anywhere and Pisces doesn’t mind. If Pisces needs to get a grip, Saturn is the perfect character builder type to help. Sagittarius reminds them the purpose of the game and encourages them to stop whining and get going! LOL! This combo calls for Pisces to be most understanding in the beliefs department. Saturn in Sag likes to build churches for the true believers, do it by the good book. Pisces meditates and claims to have talked with God.

Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Pisces, and in a manner of speaking is a pseudo T Square, Jupiter representing Sagittarius. Sag is the sign at the midpoint between Virgo and Pisces. All are what we call Mutable signs – changeable, adaptable, moving. Virgo adjusts the schedule to financial standing, health needs. Jupiter seeks a greater range, changes direction when it discovers a more promising opportunity. Being opposite, Pisces may sense this is not for them and widens the gap. Jupiter and Virgo are way too picky, too busy for solitude loving Pisces and they can’t agree on the purpose of the venture anyway. Or, Pisces is drawn along by Virgo’s impeccable data and Jupiter’s generous intention. They may offer Pisces funding to help teach the disadvantaged, save lives with health programs. It may be time for Pisces to hire an assistant to manage events, chauffeur, write their scripts!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a Fire and Air combination, SO social and Pisces is so not! But what is an artist, a musician, without their attorney or media manager?! It’s good to open our Spirits more to others around us. Balancing our inner world with the world as it is, scary, amazing, rich, is a maximum fulfillment. We feel more alive. We find ways to buffer our sensitivity while among our fellows. We are glad to offer our perceptions to help others through the nuances of their relationships. We see similarly to Libra in that we can put ourselves in another’s place, be more forgiving and understanding. Teaching is more eloquent, even poetic. Opinions, though often disparate, find ways to coexist as all learn from each other. Jupiter in Libra offers beautiful and inspiring invitations. We feel honored to be among the chosen.

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Pisces ~

Magical Dimensions, Landscapes of Nether! 

Pisces Ocean Fantasy Mermaid Unicorn Fairy Castle

To many Pisceans fantasy is an elemental part of life, all is blended, merged, connected. At the edge of the worlds, beyond within, moving to stillness. No molecule is left behind. We are swept in the tides of all being, shuffled and polished in the tides of life. We merge wholly with some for a time, wave as others pass by. Part of us is part of them, goes with them yet we are still here. Pisces is all and entirely nothing.

Being in love with a Pisces is a union well beyond words. Twin Flames, Soul Mates are terms we often hear. There is knowing with no thinking. Spirits are swirled like a teasing ice cream, the eddies in the tide pool. There are times when each IS the other. Other times there is a disconnect as one or the other wanders into another fascinating world. They may be gone a few moments, years, or simply never return, vanish. It is speculated the Soul takes them where they are needed most. Sometimes there is a need for solitude, to find one’s own center again, then they are back.

Pisceans may be mystifying, no discernable hard facts. They certainly aren’t bookkeepers like their opposite sign Virgo. Earthly organization is not their need, they are on Divine schedule. Definitions are in the moment and depend on who you are with. Time is irrelevant. Money isn’t a matter. Sexuality may be ambiguous.

If Venus is in Capricorn, perhaps there are more standard mores, gritty work accomplished, a platform built for the entertainment, future outcomes levied in. Musicians, composers of excellence.

If in Aquarius, and with Mercury there too, life and sexuality are likely to be different. And that’s putting it mildly. We don’t usually think of Pisces as rebellious, but in this case, watch your mismatched socks! Don’t be too surprised if they are spiritually radical – that can be dedicated to atheist! Either way, those beliefs are super important to them. Oh can they play and sing! Melodious or off key, bizarre to exceptional, they are enchanting. Bright colored birds of many iridescent colors.

If Venus and Mercury are in Pisces with their Sun, they will more truly please themselves, be the most unpredictable as they morph to whomever passes by and catches their fancy, experimenting with the nuances of life. Early in life they may be very vulnerable and naïve, and when older you can never fool them. They know before you do. This combo is most susceptible to sorrows and addictions. It’s important to keep company with people who love who you are, celebrate and encourage you. This magical mix loves the night and has phenomenal dreamtime!

If Venus and Mercury are in Aries, you might never guess them to be Pisces! Aries is blink-of-the-eye fast, first and furious! Of course, Pisces helps with that because their intuition responds before Aries senses the need to act! Double time quick! In Aries any meditation or sitting still, being dreamy and wondering, doesn’t last long! Aries wants to DO, be there, get things rolling, lead the troops! Pisces believes in the cause, Aries puts it into action. A walking, or better yet, running meditation suits.

If Venus is in Taurus, things are steady and true blue. There’s a slower pace, flowers and danger of wine and chocolates. Sweet voices, an elfin face, whimsical Spirits. They may have a garden by the sea, harvest the seaweed at the shoreline, sit at the foot of a tree, spend hours lost in contemplation of nature. Sometimes money matters more. Touch may calm them. Beauty pleases them.

And, of course there can be mixes of the above that give different flavors and talents. There are flavors with Pisces, and with any sign. Venus is up to 47 degrees from the Sun, within the same sign or up to two either side. Mercury only up to 28 degrees, in the same Sun sign or its neighboring sign. Go to Astro.com, Free Horoscopes, to find where your planets are. If you don’t know your birth time, use 12 PM, midday.

Doing business with a Pisces is not by the book. Imagination takes them and you on amazing rides. If it’s a serious gotta sign these papers, a deadline, keep sessions short and focused in an undistracting place. If they are bored, they simply change the channel and they escape! If it’s a brainstorming session you’re in luck! Open the doors and windows, cater the lunch, record, put your feet up on footstools, go to the beach! If it’s bookkeeping, report simply and get to the point. Human Resources are always a challenge. Pisceans forgive and understand, want to help, and be sure to give a good severance if we must let them go. You may have to do a takeover and offer to do it for them.

Pisceans do better with work that helps others – charities, saving animals and people, the planet. Many of them have been down themselves, and with their empathy at high volume, see the needs. They see the future as it could be if change isn’t made. Prevention is a key part. Some of them are down on their knees, one on one with children. Some are in great hardship at disaster sites doing recovery work. Others are in research labs tinkering with tiny things that mean a lot. Others are on stage blasting the message through story and poetic songs, both heartbreakers and inspiration that moves hearts of stone!

Health matters are sometimes obscure, hard to define. Other times, if obvious weight, drug or alcohol addictions, who needs a doctor?! It’s self evident. Feet, the part of the body that stands under, understanding, are Pisces’ domain. Swelling, allergies, sleep, dream disorders can be concerns. If you are a sensitive, you may be psychosomatically susceptible to other people’s illnesses. Since Pisceans have such acute hearing, are so sensitive to music and sounds, hearing and ear issues may happen at one time or another. Pisces is considered visionary, and that applies to your eyesight as well. It can be both psychologically or physically. We can be blinded, in denial. In astrology, people with important or many factors in the 12th (Pisces) House, Neptune with Moon, Sun, or at the Ascendant or Moon or Sun in the 12 House may have these issues as well. Get some good grounded help from reliable healers with a proven record of success.

Meditation, rest, music are helpful healers. Hydrotherapy, negative Ions by the sea, swimming, floating take you away. Doing service, volunteer work, the ‘Mission,’ takes your mind off things, and builds an aura of confidence as dream becomes reality.

Psychic Pisceans can be anybody’s twin. They know you, have many talents. Clairaudience is clear hearing. They can be clairvoyant, have clear vision as they view the sweep of life or location around you as events unfold. Their dreams are often predictive. Clear guidance is given in the ideas upon awaking. Levitation is not unheard of. Shapeshifting is common. It’s pretty funny when Pisceans are looking for a psychic. They have a hard time finding someone who sees more than they do themselves!

Neptune, the Pisces planet, will be IN Pisces until 2026, another 10 years! You might say, oh I have plenty of time, but it depends on what the degrees are in your personal chart. It will activate different factors as it goes along, or if your factors are in the first third of the degrees, it will be done with yours this year!

It is magical to have your planet in your sign! The romance of the ages dances before your very eyes! Neptune takes 168 years in its orbit, so it will be a long time before it is in Pisces again! Really take it in, be alive to it, ask for it to be in your dreams, in the mist of the surf you breath on the incoming tide! Feel the salt on your skin. Take a cruise to a sacred site. Open a seaside restaurant or sport business. Spend time at the beach, listen to the waves. Try windsailing, paddle boarding, or get a kayak. Walk under the starry heavens at night….

It’s an elemental embrace. And you are part of it.

Healing Jupiter Virgo Chiron Pisces Uranus Aries

June 20, 2016 note: The last set is August 12 and 13. This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. 2016 opened with the second of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with the first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron – different sign, reversed aspects! What we are doing now paves the way for the next vantage point. In Libra we can incorporate our findings and these new living skills into our relationships! Blessings on your Path. See more!  


First we had Jupiter in Virgo opposition Neptune in Pisces Sep 16, 2015, one time only. Now we have the opposition to Chiron in Pisces, Neptune’s sign, coupled with the inconjunct to Uranus! The Nov 3 opposition with Chiron is the first of three, the second one Feb 23, 2016, the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon. The inconjunct with Uranus is three times too, first Nov 5, the second Mar 6, 2016, two days before the total Solar Eclipse Mar 8 at 18 Pisces! Their third aspects are Aug 12 and 13, 2016, opening the gateways for the almost 26 degree Leo/Aquarius Lunar Eclipse Aug 18, 2016! 26 is always an important degree since 26 Sagittarius is the degree of the Galactic Center/Core!

Oct 7 Jupiter starts within the activating 5 degree range of Chiron. Oct 18 Jupiter is within 3 degrees activating the inconjunct to Uranus! These two are acting together from then on until the exact aspects Nov 3 and 5! This first set all three planets will be at 17 degrees. In Feb/March they will be at 20 and 18 degrees. The third time, in August, all three will be at 24 degrees. So your charts won’t be activated all three times unless you have factors at or quite close to all those degrees.

Virgo, Virgo, Virgo! This means there has been and will be a lot going on along the Virgo/Pisces axis! There are these three outer planet aspects 3 times each, a Full Moon, and a total Solar Eclipse! In addition, Jupiter will square Saturn twice from 16 and 13 Virgo; and there’s the Super Mega trine it makes to Pluto from 13, 17, and 16 Virgo!

Oppositions and inconjuncts are from here to there! Oppositions are straight across the table. You know your enemy, or potential friend, face to face. There’s no doubt who you each are. Inconjuncts are from one sign to the sign across but to the left or right. They are usually harder to read, easy to ignore and pass by, but their presence can also be nagging or irritating, make you twitch. Like an interesting detour or side trip, you might be glad you took the time to introduce yourself and see why they are there! Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Chiron in Pisces. Uranus is one to right of Pisces, in Aries! Big difference!

These are Alpha and Omega signs! Pisces is the last of all the signs, Omega. Triumphant completion, happy and sad endings, maturity, the foundation for future quests. Pisces has compassion for all the struggles of the aeons, sees the needs not yet filled. It makes music, sounds without words, that cross all gaps of communications, age and languages. Next, Alpha, is first sign Aries, built for speed, spontaneous unquestioning action. It’s the first responder, on a mission! It fights the good fight, is the defender who scraps for the cause, lights the way and people follow!

Jupiter in Virgo so wants to heal and serve, do the right thing. Chiron is referred to as the wounded, healer, teacher. Another one wanting to heal despite any personal pains it might have. The first lap of the journey might be looking at hurts from the past, even at the Soul level. They might be difficult to discern since they are invisible, been with us forever, a seeming part of our fiber. It may take some delicate dancing to tease them out, strip them away fiber by fiber. But a good Virgo weaver can do it, untangle the knots, reweave until there is no noticeable flaw. Ironically, it often takes awhile to get used to your new life without the bump or tear. Feels a little funny….

Once the hurt is healed, Jupiter is free to pass the skills on. Apprentices appear. Jupiter wants to use more herbs, be outdoors, take time off away, seek methods in foreign countries from shaman healers. Chiron believes meditation, art, music will heal the Soul as well as the Body. Dance, refresh with a swim, take an ocean cruise, use special salts. Balance of work and play matter. It’s important to have right work for the Spirit to prosper. Uranus in Aries in the mix brings in cutting edge health research in addition to the ancient remedies Virgo uses to this day!

Uranus in Aries is impossible to organize, and it sizzles with hum, disturbing Virgo’s set up. Drives Virgo a tad crazy, but keeps them awake, on their toes, and humming! Jupiter, however is curious and half the time follows the Pied Piper until Virgo grabs the reigns. If Virgo can’t stop them, at least it can sorta get them in a direction. It just won’t be the direction Virgo exactly had in mind in the first place. Being off course can make some delays, but may bring diverse tickly information that tweaks the system to an even better process. New things will be tried. Uranus in Aries is not completely immune to Virgo’s common sense. In fact they may pester you for advice. But don’t be surprised if they are off in a twinkling with their new treasure. Between the two, there can be a quite fruitful result. Expansion and revision go hand in glove!

Uranus is afraid to be told what to do and when to do it, lose its freedom, but Virgo’s experience proves it saves time and everyone gets to go to the beach sooner! Virgo knows for a fact that Uranus is going to upset the apple cart and sure enough does. Yet, the research and outcome make for a virtually enlightened technique! The craft is consummate, the style like none other! Get thee to the patent office!

Work that is special, makes a difference, makes for excellent health. Working with others for the same wonderful goals puts differences into perspective. We see how each contributes and our hearts are full. Uranus in Aries is community collaboration of many gifted leaders. More can get done in a shorter time than ever expected! Amazing results! Be there!

Willingly stepping into the world of these three will open you in ways you didn’t know needed opening. Pisces is subtle. Virgo sees when things are slightly out of order. Jupiter laughs, gives faith and perspective. Chiron is Master at knowing long term trauma when he sees it no matter how cleverly disguised it is. Uranus darts into the most momentary opening like a lightning bolt, and there’s no going back, the lights are ON. Things are fragmented into working size bits. Some pivotal matter about you will be healed.

Remember, there are three passages. Record in your life notes what comes up the first time. It may seem like nothing at first, but becomes something importantly symbolic as you ponder it along the way, as your subconscious works it in the Dreamtime. Deliberately take a look back at the previous time/s before the second (retrograde) and third events. Work it well.

Wishing you freedom and sweet new beginnings.

FYI  2016 opens with second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. 2016 closes with first time of three Jupiter LIBRA opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus.

Jupiter opp Neptune Sea World Turtle Rescue

Florida Sea World released 14 turtles that were brought to the park due to cold related injuries. Big Mama! 250 lbs of Green Sea Turtle, along with another Green Sea Turtle were released in the Banana River.

This aspect is a big part of the Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon Sep 12, 2015!

The day before Saturn returns to Sagittarius, Jupiter probes the Neptune ocean of rhythms, ebbs and flows. It meanders on a glassy sea, gliding hither and yon with little to stop it. It rides the surf at tideline, exploring crevices and creatures, weaving among the shoreline seaweeds. It pounds down on the sands and corals, changing the coastlines of our lives, the perimeters of our existence. There are magic moments of fusion and sudden separations leaving us breathless with insights beyond ordinary belief! Our travels take us into the caves of darkness, on the sea spray up into the luminous sunlight, magical moonlight, scattered to the Four Directions! And all that can happen in one day.

Jupiter is known for lively curiosity, impregnating us with irresistible ideas, becoming expansion and glory as we make them come true! We travel farther than usual, share our stories. Lives are woven together in a continuous tapestry following the path of our adventures. We are all one….

Neptune, the God of the Sea, is ruler of a mighty kingdom! Plenty of room for Jupiter to get its feet wet. So many ports, and they change every time you visit! The Motion of Life is ever emerging, awakening, alive with evolution. Jupiter loves to see what’s next, and Neptune has infinite capacity to absorb and merge all things, whether of mind or Spirit, becoming yet another something never seen before! The Tides are like a giant washing machine, salting, sanding, sudsing away, making ever finer particles, minerals, so it all fits in a knit.

Jupiter may bring big tides, huge ships, big animals at the shoreline from bears to whales, the biggest of their kind! Photographers be ready for very long shoots or exceptional panoramic views, superb underwater photography, telescopic beauty in the night time!

On the inner planes, the unknown may feel safe, as if you had the Guide of the Universe with you, Protector Guardian – dream time astral travel perhaps. Take a chance. A detail may carry you through the eye of the needle, call you to a supreme at one ment, a compassion beyond words. You may come to believe there is life after death, a thread of many lifetimes. There may be a near death experience, or a fill-your-heart appreciation of simple daily things of the precious sacred life you live.

Don’t be confused. It’s a choice. Stay steady in your thinking. But if it quavers you either know your weak spot or you have landed in a zone of magical change and it’s time to let go of what’s too hard and fast in your life. The future is more attractive than the past pains. Watch it, befriend it, check it out. If it tickles and niggles, pay attention. That just may be the next step. Oppositions can stand forlorn on opposite shores or a bridge can be built, a hand stretched across the table. Sometimes a little separation is a huge relief, gives important perspective, time to think for yourself by yourself yet be aware there are others with contributions. We may be apart, but not alone.

Virgo is an incredibly kind sign, human, plant and animal caretakers, and in so many other capacities. Jupiter wants the world to know that. Neptune in its own sign Pisces is the compassionate rescuer, anywhere from addicted humans to injured animals. Sometimes we are on one side needing that care and rescue ourselves; sometimes we are the other side able to give it. A sweet veteran I know delivers free warm meals to an old man I garden with who had a stroke. The vet says he’s been there; he too needed help at a period in his life. Payback time. Let’s be there for each other. Generously.

Neptune is the deepest Pool of the Soul. It takes us to Spirit, fathoms our dreams, knows our most subtle fears, has the compassion of all Being. It makes Music without words, is Divine Love. Jupiter looks across the table at this panorama of humanity and knows its mission. In Virgo it starts right then and there putting puzzle pieces together, making a fusion of the future. It has a year to do its part.

Jupiter opposite Neptune happens the very last day of Saturn in Scorpio, the end, maturity of a 29 year cycle! It is an aspect of faith and understanding, insights. It will secure the knowing of the potent mission Saturn has had in Scorpio – the profound needs we have for true intimacy, financial adequacy, the deepest meanings of our lives, the sacred arts of healing. The experiences of the last 2+ years will provide a foundation for the sacred teachings Saturn in Sagittarius will offer. Together we will work hard for the rights to education for all, the poor, immigrants, women, the children of the world.

Jupiter opposite Neptune intuitively senses our greater purpose; Saturn in Sagittarius travels that Path of Wisdom and makes it so.
