Happy Birthdays, Pisceans!

Ron Collins at sunrise Thursday in Tampa Bay at North Shore Park after his morning swim at North Shore Pool in St. Petersburg. Wonderful image by photojournalist Dirk Shadd! See http://dirkshadd.com/portraits/athletes-everyday-heroes/ 

Can you believe a Taurus man, May 4, 1962, is an ocean swimmer hero?! Ron Collins has Neptune, God of the Sea, opposite his Sun and has an amazing relationship with the sea! Jupiter and Chiron are in Pisces, trining (blessing) that Neptune, sextiling his Sun! Ron says, “Next to my family, I love swimming more than anything else in the whole world.”

Ron was named a US Masters Long Distance All-American in the 30-34 age group in 1994, and has won Florida open-water events in Jacksonville, Key West, Melbourne, Lake Wales, Lake Weir, as well as a national championship event in Charlottesville, Va.

He was elected Sanctions Chair for the Florida LMSC in 1996. In 1997, he helped organize the first Tampa Bay Open Water Challenge, a 3.5 mile swim across the bay to help raise money for the environmental group BayWatch whose purpose is to protect and preserve the Tampa Bay estuary.

Ron is the first man to swim the 24-mile length of Tampa Bay, two and a half miles longer than the English Channel! Today that race, directed by Ron, is one of the world’s longest marathon swims, and is held annually in April, in celebration of Earth Day! After the Tampa swim, Ron wanted to complete the third leg of ocean swimming’s Triple Crown! That third leg is the 20-mile crossing from Catalina Island to the California coast. At that time, only 40 had ever swum the English Channel, Manhattan Island and Catalina.

He had completed longer swims — 28 miles around Manhattan — and more famous swims — the English Channel. But this would be the most dangerous. His planned route would put him right in the path of migrating great white sharks. At night. When it’s hard for the sharks to distinguish a seal from a swimmer. The water was a cool 59 and 61 degrees.

Well, he didn’t get eaten but he didn’t make it either. 2 Miles from shore the paramedic called it. He didn’t remember being hauled out of the cold water with hypothermia. But, of course he aimed to try again in warmer water conditions! Taureans don’t give up!

Sep 10, 2013, at age 51, he did it! Ron Collins became the 78th person to complete the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming! Fellow swimmer Randy Nutt says, “Some people are dreamers [Pisces], others are doers. Ron Collins is both.”

Keep swimming, Ron!

Pisces 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 wildest of the set, next, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Pisces 2017-March 2018 !

Pisces! Dolphins surfing South Africa - image by dolphin lover Greg Huglin!

Get up, get out, frolic, exult in your habitat, joyously leap into your new year!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Pisces, the last sign, is not so concerned with concrete and finances, but is entirely interested in how they are used! A hospital, temple, theatre, an art school, are places where we all are healed. Nonprofits are funded and sustained. Change fear and greed to safety and the joy of abundance to give. Be visionary with your conversions from old stunted places to the dreams of a better world.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of 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! 2017 to March 2018, those of you with chart factors between 11 and 14 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Pisces, it will be potent through and through! For some there will be supreme denial, for others it will be the profound experience of a lifetime. Neptune takes 168 years to do the entire circuit sign by sign. So this is it! Let your feelers tingle, your Spirit soar and be still to the point of invisibility. Feel the tides of life, sometimes cruel, sometime ecstatic with love beyond mortal words or understanding. Feel beauty shimmer through you, a rainbow of fusion.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through March 2018. 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 takes action! Pisces flows, where Uranus in Aries is ziggy and darts! Pisces can make a space for this whirlwind, embraces the magic of the mix! Art is tweaked, computer conspired! Old acceptance, compliance, is not encompassing enough. Visions, rather than asleep in dreams, have become the action of leaders and champions! What was once strange is now a new standard. Astonishing new friends carry you along with them!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees. Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees in Pisces. If it be you have Chiron in those Pisces 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 the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Pisceans will likely think they do deserve more and wonderful, and they with their intuition make superlative life and business partners!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 8 Capricorn now through March 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Pisces to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point, but Pisces intuitively wanders. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Pisces, all water, flows where there is the greatest need. Sag can lead and teach, Pisces quietly encourages and inspires from behind the scenes or on stage with the sounds of the angels of heaven! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Pisces can put it on film. The legacy is bestowed.

29 year Saturn Returns 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, 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.

21 to 29 degree Sagittarians will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that 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 or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Pisces can be very helpful, sensing the way, recognizing the thresholds. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Pisces understands fate, dharma – the work of the Soul. Archaeological antiquities call our Soul to remember who we were and the great efforts made to celebrate and commemorate accomplishments that stood the test of time. We are reminded to carry on that beauty, be immortal. Though Pisces is total osmosis, it can also long for a magical water bowl to live in, to define it, to be able to look up at the stars on a clear dark night.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 8 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 may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor.

Jupiter is now in Libra. Oct 10 it travels into Scorpio, goes up to 23 degrees March 2018.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Pisces observes, often wanting a quieter venue, wanders out into the garden to sit by the pond. A misty day suits them. They can dream and let thoughts coalesce, rise to consciousness. Libra draws them out of themselves and Jupiter, if clever, introduces them to the gift of other Souls that lead what Pisces believes in. The musician, artist, seagoer, temple sitter, water athlete. Jupiter assures them both that through some of these connections we can change the world. Libra keeps it from getting too boisterous and protects Pisces from being overwhelmed. Pisces reaches back, so gently you have to watch for it, to thank, and let Jupiter know their response may be gentle, but very caring and it means a lot to them. Jupiter in Libra doesn’t need to work so hard to make an impression…

Jupiter in Scorpio is easier for Pisces, they are both water signs. They could collude or they could collaborate! Scorp likes its secrets and confidentialities; Pisces just likes quiet at times. But Jupiter likes abundance and Scorpio is the corporate ticket! He sees that Pisces could use a little more money and Jupiter wants education, so funds the amazing Pisces dream. Just like that, they are in business, much to Pisces’ surprise! What?! Aw, heck, and it’s fun! It was getting a little boring anyway. So they travel a bit, get ideas, talk with the accountant. Jupiter in Scorpio can manage things adroitly, isn’t afraid, and is tireless. What a lucky adventure! Another plus is Pisces may be healed of things only a blunt Jupiter could tell them about, and Scorpio is no stranger to cleaning up messes, LOL!

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans! Keep the Lights ON!


Any of these outer planet 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 astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Pisces Dreams, Visions, Miracles!

Pisces! An average day.... Geometry of the Soul by Andrew Ostraovsky

An average Pisces day….   Geometry of the Soul by Graphic Designer Andrew Ostrovsky

Immortal unity. Life after life the Soul coalesces our experiences, continues its expression and searches the far reaches of all Being. Fusion incarnate. Micro to magnificent. All and nothing at all. Primordial, aboriginal. Destiny beyond mere belief. Conception far beyond intelligence.

Pisces belongs to all and belongs to none. They may wander off to be where they are needed. They may need quiet, a free zone to contemplate, recenter at a new level. They belong to all because they feel every nuance, how we are all connected, or not. They are chameleons and shapeshifters, trying on many forms. Those sad eyes they sometimes have are the expression of their deep seated compassion. They see.

As children they need safe space. Good or bad, they take it in, become it. Give them light, clean beauty, gentle music, a kind environment that encourages their extra perceptions. Later that ability will be their creative gifts – the film, surreal designs, a symphony of sounds, the merging of a magical range of talents.

8-5 is not their schedule. Their capacity is greater than being a bird in a cage, a jewel cut and put in a setting. Their ocean of Spirit flows with the tides, sun swept or with the Moon and stars! There are times to rest and float anywhere to nowhere, or take off when the surf’s up!

Health can be fragile, or strong like the mystical whales! It can be leaping like a dolphin, or dreaming in hospital, tended by other Pisceans who understand your reason for being there. Might have been them. Dancers take special care of their feet. The right shoes are important! Piscean health is as much physical as in their minds and spirit. Fear, boredom, continual verbal abuse, gloomy surroundings wear them down. Escaping can take many forms, but it too is dispiriting. Right work is life saving. It must be work that means something, saves the world and helps each other.

Love scintillates like a sparking sea in a light breeze! It is as live as it can be imagined. It can be so real, intricate, so finely fitted you become One with the other. It can cross the aeons, lifetime after lifetime. Across continents each knows what the other is doing! We can love because we care for all Beings. Love can be pure Grace.

Miracles for a Pisces are more a verb than a noun. They are like breathing, innate. They are something you do and happens all around you naturally. You are often in the right place at the right time to meet someone special. Spontaneous healing is expected. Knowing who’s calling, you open the door to find them poised to ring the doorbell. You wonder how someone is you haven’t seen in a long time and they cross your path that day or quite soon. You could write those off to coincidence, but then there are the things that happen that the best authorities claim can’t be done, yet they happen to you more than odds against chance. You could say it is just telepathy, but then that’s not supposed to happen either, but it does.

Many a young Piscean gets talked out of these experiences, they are explained into oblivion by less endowed people, people who love them. But down the road of their life, they get stronger in their own Being. It takes time, but they learn to trust their precious impressions. At first it is fleeting, but over time, it’s more than a glimpse, they get it! Those impressions save them time, they know the truth, can be immediately helpful at crucial times. It makes all the difference in the world. They don’t always know where they are going, but they know they need to get there! The ultimate trust.

You are in good company as a Pisces. The magician Albert Einstein, the mad and alluring Elizabeth Taylor, versatile Glenn Close, innumerable excellent actors and actresses, wild Sir Elton John, consummate artist Michelangelo, psychic Edgar Cayce, iconoclast Jack Kerouac, modern man Steve Jobs. Classic Pisces quotes:

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
— Albert Einstein

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.”
— Edgar Cayce (four planets in Pisces – Sun, Venus, Saturn, Mercury!)

New Moon Solar Eclipse!  Five Planets in Pisces, Three in Aries!

Sunday February 26 ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE! 6:58 AM Pacific at 8 Pisces 12!

Pisces Annular Solar Eclipse!

Though we North Americans won’t see it, it’s gonna be a beauty! In Pacific zone we will simply have a sunrise as usual, not ‘seeing’ the Moon since she has her dark side to us. More at Sky & Telescope

Pisces brings us a profound New Moon Solar Eclipse! There are 5 planets, a stellium, in Pisces – Mercury, Moon, Sun, Neptune and Chiron! Pisces can see the sorrows, what needs healing that the Soul requires. There is the deepest compassion that music is born from. Magnificent performances, art, touch our hearts, we want to help. Magic and miracles happen, meditation unveils the mysteries. Dreams beget stirring insights, reawaken hopes. Solitude allows a rest to the depth of peace. Dancing moves our feet, we join our talents in new directions with kindred beings. We heal our selves and save others at the same time.

Mercury rules two signs, Gemini and Virgo, both logical. In Pisces they merge, logic and intuition. Mercury takes notes, gives words to previously unnamed perceptions, misunderstood precepts. There may have been caring that was never spoken. Now a door is open.

Mercury is very close to the South Node of the Moon, thought to be a point of our past lives where we overdid it. Mercury, ruler of the sign the North Node, Virgo, is very fitting here since there are deep matters to be thought of and spoken about, reorganized, rebalanced, applied to the services we aspire to perform. Mercury names the old nemesis out loud, and by so doing, a lot of fears are instantly dispelled, secrets of failure released! Mercury likes to play with thinking, enjoys a kaleidoscope of possibilities, is not generally seduced by myth. They can blend old talents with our current potential that we have grown to be able to do!

SOLAR ECLIPSE! Moon can be ever so gentle in lending her support to Father Sun. He shines, but she enhances his power of seeing where to direct his energy. His focus increases to the deepest fathoms, putting light in abandoned places not used to being looked at. Now that we see what the trouble is, we have a chance at resurrection. In quiet time together he tells her his doubts, she loves him no matter what. He is restored, his heart swells. Nurture your Self this tenderly. An Eclipse is a direct lineup, the energy transmitted precisely!

They are with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet! Blind or visionary, both are ways of seeing. Close your eyes, see within. Hear the sounds of your own breath, your heart beat, the blood moving through your veins. Know that you are a supreme crucial part of divine being of all Souls. We are One. Forgiveness and blessing always. Our exquisite sensitivity impels us, we know what we need to do. There is natural gravitation, a remembrance, activation of the sacred wellspring within us.

Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4. She semi-sextiled Neptune Feb 22 for the first time. She makes beauty, which Neptune appreciates for he makes beauty so many ways, from the ocean, its creatures and plants, to the Soul, Spirit. Venus in Aries calls for a living active livening beauty, to live for it! Venus calls for love and affection, kindliness. Neptune responds because he is the planet of compassion. While Pisces is more all encompassing, Venus is right here, on the spot right now! She reminds the old Master of current predicaments and how inspiring the challenge can be, needs his council by her side.

In this chart, Chiron leads the way. In Pisces it is the Soul healer. We are called to move through our wounds, and through that healing, teach others by our experiences. Each relationship has meaning, disappointments and blessings. Each comes when we are ready for the next level. We see from different vantage points, a wholeness becoming. In turn, all the skills we gain bring us to more satisfying life work, giving our best to companies and causes, true contribution.

In addition to Pisces, the last sign, there are 3 planets in the first sign Aries – Venus, Mars in his own sign, and Uranus! Venus in Aries loves a good fair fight, is competitive, adores challenges, and can be sweet about it, but stay nimble, she’s quick! Mars is passionate about causes, independence, heroic rescues, doesn’t wait! And he is within a few minutes of his companion in Spirit, Uranus, the futurist who prefers freedom! Though each often work alone, if they gather the troops, no telling what can get done, faster than the blink of an eye! These three are winners!

Mars conjuncts Uranus 4:17 PM Pacific! In old fashioned practical terms we warn to have caution with this aspect! Especially with Mars opposite Jupiter 6:24 AM Pacific the next morning! Mars is impetuous, rebellious, easily provoked, sometimes over assertive, arguments can ensue, accidents can happen. Uranus is famous for sudden events! While Mars is runners, bikes, vehicles, Uranus is planes, electronics. If you don’t feel like getting on the flight, don’t. Uranus is at times absent minded since they are great thinkers. Keep track of your friend. Jupiter in Libra is so social and not wanting to hurt your feelings that they may get in over their head. Or they are opinionated, overconfident, so trusting, telling such a great story, that they miss the signals. And, with all that PIsces, there can be a lack of focus or attention. So don’t get lost, and please don’t stand with your back to the curb, get help if you need it!

Barring the accidental possibilities, Mars and Uranus are opposite Jupiter retrograde in Libra. Mars and Uranus in Aries are fast as lightning! They aren’t waiting around for civility or amenities! But Jupiter has their attention and makes such good Libra connections, they would like to meet those people too! Jupiter is excited to see such an unusual combination, and realizes that sometimes you just have to call it what it is and keep on moving to levels where more can get done without constraints. There is a balance being sought by Libra, well traveled Jupiter wants a generous perspective. The nature of oppositions has a Libra scent, planets wide apart yet bringing good things to the negotiating table. Just remember, these are intelligent planets and signs, so get to it promptly and don’t miss the window!

Though retrograding away, Jupiter is still close in the sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius, many thresholds. Jupiter has been consulting with Saturn the Builder. Jupiter has grand ideas and Saturn is good at grounding the planning in a timely fashion. If school comes first, or learning certain skills is required, then that’s first or alongside the early parts of the project. Jupiter is going away to think on his own, without Saturn’s censorship and to learn more from others. But Saturn’s practical advice is well kept in Jupiter’s thoughts. Saturn awaits his return, building in preparation because he knows the good things that can happen and wants to be ready. They rejoin closely July 29, become exact Aug 27.

Saturn holds the degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius! It holds this degree from Feb 18, the day the Sun enters Pisces, to March 6. Jupiter opposite Uranus is within that time, on March 2! The GC is considered to be a profound point, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Keep an open mind!

The upcoming outer planet Jupiter retrograde opposition Uranus March 2 is the backdrop aspect of the entire chart. This Eclipse, New Moon, is the preparation for the opposition of these two amazing planets! Jupiter is the old Fame and Fortune Planet, abundance, expansion, teaching and travel. Uranus represents awakening, evolution itself, the genius of group action, the Internet, outer space, flight and friendship! Opposite signs represent bridges, collaborations of offerings, exchanges. Make it so.

Keep learning and serving, stay true and steady in the Light!

Full Worm Moon!

Four Planets in Pisces! T Square; Sun/Moon with Jupiter Opposition Uranus!

Sunday March 12, 7:54 AM Pacific at 22 Virgo 13

Pisces Full Moonrise Towers Beach June 23, 2018 by Kyle Grantham

Full Moonrise at Towers Beach at Delaware Seashore State Park on Sunday evening, June 23, 2013 by super photographer Kyle Grantham of Wilmington, Del.

Four planets Pisces!

Neptune remains as spiritual placeholder, marker, but he isn’t standing still exactly either! Venus in next sign Aries is enticing him forward, showing him how sweet it can be, that new ideas really are worth it! The Old Man of the Sea is inspired and he has the wisdom needed to support the adventure! Venus is now retrograde at 11 Aries semi sextile Neptune. Venus crossed that position Feb 22, retrograded across it YESTERDAY, Mar 11 at 5:53 AM Pacific! The third passage is May 19 at 14 Pisces.

Mercury in Pisces was with Chiron March 10. He gathered some magical wisdom from teacher Chiron; Chiron got some up to date information! Sun is now closely with Chiron, exact March 14. Sun lights the way, shimmering through the mists of time, warming the morning, waking us from slumbers of the Soul. He gives us courage to try out our dreams, carry the healing forward. Chiron offers insights about relationships, the businesses we do together that sustain us in our daily lives. Sun enlightens us to choose from the heart, be dedicated in Spirit to the Light of Life.

Virgo Moon is listening and watching keenly since nursing, tending and accounting are her talents. She observes Chiron’s transmission, Mercury’s (her planet) reception into the data banks, Sun’s guiding to where the light is brightest! Sun may be very gentle in Pisces and seeing that, Virgo is shown how to be critical, but with a kindness she may not have ever known herself. She too is lighted and grateful. She can take all that in, organize, find a system of expressing it so every one of us can be uplifted.

Just preceding the Full Moon, Sun inconjuncted Jupiter the 11th, 6:18 AM Pacific Full Moon morning, Moon semi-sextiled Jupiter. They consulted the cosmic planner, adjusted some links and spread some information to the side. They got more up to date, sorted out some impressions, were reminded of their long term goals, were able to let go of some imaginary blocks to their progress. Greased the wheels.

22 Degrees! The Full Moon’s closest aspects are with Uranus in Aries! Opposite Uranus, Jupiter in Libra is gifted with establishing fortunate relationships! Uranus in Aries lights the fires! Many relationships may be formed quickly and put into action practically simultaneously! The Sun semi-sextiles Uranus. They rule opposite signs Leo and Aquarius, but semi-sextiles are neighbors! They know each other, have spent time together. Sun is the One! Uranus is One to Many! Friends, community organizations, international networks! One Pisces person can inspire a revolution, call a Uranian to invent a miraculous device or a cure! We are not alone. The Moon in Virgo inconjunct Uranus organizes every last bit. That’s what computers are for! We have instant response time for disasters, cleanups, animal care, human healing. And Virgo reminds us to stay organic, use the simplest wild herbal when possible.

T Square! Both Moon and Sun will square Saturn at 27 Sagittarius. Moon squares 5:25 PM Pacific. Sun squares Saturn March 17. Saturn can hold things in abeyance, make you tired, delay the inevitable! Staying calm and realistic can be well worth the wait. It gives a timeout to consider more relevant priorities, to build more solidly. It may appear that promises are broken by fear, disappointment again. But if it isn’t truly a fit, in time that becomes clear. It is a great relief to be saved from ourselves! Rebuild from a strong stable center.

Moon square Saturn is also like an opposition since Moon rules Cancer, the sign opposite Capricorn, Saturn’s sign! Moon is nurturing, Saturn is brusque at times, quite hard working to make the deadlines. But he does provide for the family. Cancer warms the hearth; Saturn provides the shelter. Mom and Dad. Saturn at times gets rigid in his systems, is afraid there isn’t time. Moon needs to be clever to catch him in quick moments of between times. She needs to keep if brief and be to the point. Why is what she is suggesting a good thing? She needs to be careful it doesn’t sound like a criticism (in Virgo) but an opportunity! She needs to admire cleanly, no manipulation. Saturn can have opinions in Sag, but there needs to be room for opportunity, expansion, the ability to reset time and priorities! Good business! There may be grief that needs sensitive comforting.

Sun square Saturn Letting go of ego confrontations, making choices for the long term, keeping the goal in mind, are so more satisfying than a short term enchantment. Being told what to do, being intimidated, held back, is not honoring. Bring yourself up to your true level with people who delight in your contributions! Sun, especially in Pisces, can seem wooly minded, and mystical may not get the job done, at times not to be trusted. But good hearted can go a long way. There is a knowing care is there, in fact brightens Saturn’s day though he might not admit it at first. Saturn may find his more cold rough edges melt a bit. He more kindly says here’s what I need, can you do it? Sun says let’s go away for the weekend and think about it. Could work.

Mercury was just starting Pisces at our New Moon, now it is just about to leave. It’s finishing up the last bits of the subtle Pisces maze, connecting the dots, making a safety net, preparing for it’s passage through Aries! It has just squared Saturn 5:10 AM Pacific.

Upcoming Jupiter Square Pluto

At the Feb 26 New Moon Eclipse, Jupiter retrograde opposite Uranus was the upcoming major planet aspect. It has been like an explosion! Now it is the second Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn March 30 taking precedence. Right now they are only 2 degrees apart and closing. There may be a calming, but powerful conditions prevail. It’s a time to keep watch for secret agendas and alliances, rights forfeited for lack of resistance, lack of attention, apathy, disbelief that could happen.

After the Oct 30 Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, this was THE Powerful Aspect at Election time! It became the 1st exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! There will be three. March 30, 2017 is the second, Aug 4, 2017 the third. Donald J Trump, has been elected. Good news, bad news, complaints and lots needs fixing! Let’s roll up our shirt sleeves and together do what it takes! The work continues.

Relationships, cultural matters – immigrants, financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare are undergoing dramatic changes. Truth, opinions, are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard is protecting its own. Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know the other better. Jupiter calls for education, yet in simpler ways, using examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else.

If this aspect makes difficult connections with your birth chart, be cautious in business, keep your security up to date. Update or make a will as far in advance as possible. See your astrologer for a good date and time. Stay clean in your personal relationships, wait to marry. Challenging time for education, may need to be done anyway. Mind your kidneys/sugar, bones, teeth and skin.

Full Moons are so elegant when they rise and light the night sky! This Virgo – Pisces axis celebrates signs who live lives of service and caring. They both make beauty – Virgo crafts, Pisces art and music. The ultimate goal might be heaven on earth – Virgo healing the sick, singing while we work, a lovely garden; Pisces oceanic tides of cleansing our Spirits, visionary inspiration.

Blessed be and thank you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Iman, Bowie's Amazing Wife

IMAN: When I started in the fashion industry, it was unheard of for models of color to be featured on major magazines covers, or to work for exclusive fashion and beauty houses around the world. But you can’t be afraid to break down barriers. Before modeling, I came from a strong family, I was a college student. I traveled and knew five languages. So, modeling became a platform for what I do now as CEO of IMAN Cosmetics [premiere line for Women with Skin of Color], and for authoring books, being Global Ambassador for KEEP A CHILD ALIVE, hosting PROJECT RUNWAY in Canada and creating GLOBAL CHIC on HSN.

July 25, 1955 Iman has Sun, Jupiter/Mars and Pluto in LEO! SuperModel is just the right term for her. She stands 5′ 9″, 1″ shorter than her husband David Bowie was. David had Moon, Saturn and Pluto in LEO, so they were a brilliant couple, each a power in their own right! Iman’s Sun is 1 degree Leo, a degree of Initiation. Jupiter, fame, and Mars, the planet of leadership have no hesitation in modeling the adventure! Pluto is power and charisma, and Iman is gifted! Leo is generous and Pluto funds grants. She has a big heart. See her Chart

She has three planets in Cancer, Mercury/Venus and Uranus. Cancer is as nurturing as Leo is loving! Mercury and Venus together give a blessing of communicating precious words to women and children, families. Uranus thinks of more than the children at home; it wants to help the children of the world. Her Moon is in Libra, intercultural, across ages, religions. Her beauty abounds and attracts the support she needs to do her work here on the planet – promoting confidence in women of color, creating better living conditions, health, and prosperity for families.

IMAN: Two pieces of advice: Embrace change, because you never know what’s around the corner and don’t settle. The day you settle for less, is the day you will get less.

Leo 2016 Planetary Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Mark your calendars! Per Space.com the next exciting astronomical event is the Aug. 11-12: The Perseid meteor shower! The Perseids are considered among the best of the annual meteor showers, thanks to their reliability and high rates of up to 90 “shooting stars” per hour. This year’s peak will occur well after the moon — which will be just past first quarter — sets around midnight. [A good viewing dark sky!] There is also a possibility of a meteor outburst, which might produce an enhanced display this year. [Amazing Perseid Meteor Shower Photos of 2015]

Leo TimeLine!

Mars finishes the entire retrograde cycle August 22, then it’s on we go onto new adventures well founded by the sorting we have been doing since February!

The next outer planet combinations are August 12 and 13 when Jupiter makes the third and last opposition Chiron in Pisces and inconjunct Uranus in Aries! 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 opposition 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! See more!

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Leo!

Leo Lions Nuzzle

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. There is an affinity between Capricorn and Leo. They both like the best! Capricorn is proud of that Leo verve and is warmed by their love and inspired by their vitality! Leo is proud of their top of the mark Capricorn and glad for their financial successes because Leos do love to spend whether it’s the latest fashion or a fine gift! Pluto, however, is a ‘square’ planet to Leo. Time to stop that frivolous spending, take care of the business at hand for now, and they see that as long term business. Leo is called to teach techniques of constructive resolution that will bring meaningful real change. It is not so much of a performance anymore. It is a joining of forces. Leo is a strong sign, will carry a good weight and has staying power.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of 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! Leo loves playing different roles, finding the SELF as it exists in many beings. Pisces and Neptune are off to the side of Leo’s opposite Aquarius. Neptune distracts Leo a bit from its center, giving a glimpse of a different vantage point. Neptune softens Leo’s will that Leo may put on others, the demands Leo may have. At the same time, there is a blooming of further Faith to let things happen in their own time as others start to see some of the same things Leo sees as possible. Leo doesn’t give up and Neptune flutters the subtle fan, tidally washes the way for dreams to come true. Stay steady in the quest; wait for it.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Uranus is the planet of Leo’s opposite sign Aquarius! Step across the divide, oh Wild and Fair Ones! Aries won’t let sleeping Leo cats lie! Uranus in Aries is a spark so brilliant that it gets even bright Leo’s attention! Leo likes doing things their own way and classy too, so Aries may seem a little loud and undignified at times, and pushy. Hmpf. Uranus doesn’t especially care what either thinks, just as long as we are all free to make change. Uranus and Aries both love waking people up, and they enjoy prime prey like Leo that is often fixed in their own opinions and proud of it! But Leo likes big and better, and more and showy, so ultimately they are in! Bring the chariot, we’re going to the fundraiser ball!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Leos are lovers and successful business is good for marriage, and lovely for Leo spending! Chiron, like Neptune, is askew across the table, so to speak, from Leo. It draws Leo aside and whispers about old love lost, how we may have believed it was all our fault, how that makes us doubt our choices even today. It calls us to understand others have history and troubles too, some even from past lives. We are in this together. Even if we are apart, our thoughts and Spirits intertwine. Soothing and letting go may be our best assurance of clearing the way for future love. It calls us to be with Souls that are healthy, living as we would like to. We can get used to what’s waiting in our step forward into the hitherto unknown. It will take a wee bit of courage.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius. 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 – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Leo is the sign of teenagers, parties, learning how to be yourself. It’s a crucial time for the teenager in us all! Too much discipline and Spirit is broken. No discipline leaves us abandoned, with no reasonable boundaries. Saturn is Father Time; Leo is Sun’s sign, Father Sun. There is innate Selfness that is self defining. But grieving over a lost Father, the love of one’s Father, is a taint that can shadow one’s life. If you are a Father, know how much that can mean. If you are the child, thank your Father. If you are Fatherless, be your own in a good way best you can.

Sagittarius and Leo are both teacher signs. Leo teaches about Self; Sagittarius, the last fire sign, teaches us how to Seek and teach the teachers how to teach. Both are looking for volume, to amplify, expand. Christmas EVE day, Saturn in Sag will trine Uranus in Aries the first of three times, together harnessing the power of groups of leaders. They are antipodal planets, Saturn of constraint and conservation, Uranus of freedom and flinging the wild bits across the Universe! One is shelter and structure, the other is the primordial explosion into the unknown, catapulted into awakening! Leo is the mid fire sign, so you with planets 18 to 21 degrees Leo will be in Grand Fire Trine with Saturn and Uranus at that time! As Saturn and Uranus are opposites by definition, Sun and Uranus are of opposite Signs! Uranus is the connecting planet. Acceptance of difference, integration of odd talents will be called for to make the harmony of the Grand Trine flow. All fire signs are independent, or want to be, and have an uppity quality. Egos and hefty Spirits will need to appreciate each other’s diversity to gather for effective results. The opportunity is to put every single one to work!

Jupiter in Virgo Virgo is the sign after Leo, tending and organizing their life, making sure their health flourishes, develops skills for good living. Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, the fire sign after Leo. There is a playful quality between them, vying for first place, seeing how far each will go! They like teaching and learning, and Virgo loves to do on the job training. Experience in the field is invaluable. Virgo recognizes raw talent, and helps Leo hone their delivery, gives facts and data for their credibility. Soon, Leo’s presence outdoes their mentor!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Leo is thrilled and flattered. At times they are humbled by Libra’s finesse, but then Jupiter sometimes is a little blunt, so if not too offended, everyone can just lay back and be themselves. However, Leo and Jupiter are prone to exaggeration, if not downright lies, or be misleading when it makes a better story to tell, so be careful who you tell what to and how you tell their story in turn! Be ready to clean up a few little messes, hopefully not a lawsuit, though if it is yours, you are likely to win if your chart connects well to this combination. Jupiter rules races, especially horses, and is often lucky. If Leo gets the scent, they love to gamble, will take the chance, and just might win that too!

They are super traveling companions, enjoy different cultures, the zest of survival in difficult circumstances. Leo is excited to get outside the usual frame, and their creative expression is levered right up out of the box, their market broadens! A higher view reveals remarkable potential. Special relationships focus the insights. What used to be a mystery, an unspoken wondering, is now delightfully part of your new Self! Libra is partnerships, marriages, could be a divine Sweetheart!
 

Any of these outer planet 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 astrologers for the whole picture!

Have a great new year!

Leo Love & Glory!

Leo Coco Chanel, Fabulous Designer - The 'Boy' Look

Leo is a ‘boy’ sign, not famous for its bosoms. Here is French fashion designer Coco Chanel, sporting a lovely feminine ‘suit and hat.’ Born 8-19-1883, she had Sun and Venus in Leo, Mars sextile her Sun.

From Mae West to Mick Jagger, we are enthralled with bigger than life memorable Leos! Mae was clever funny and sexy as hell! Rolling Stone Englishman Mick’s sexy stage presence is huge and he has our attention to this day! And Sir Mick ain’t quittin’! At 72 this rocker and his 29-year-old girlfriend, American ballerina Melanie Hamrick are expecting his 8th child! Leo’s love kids and virtually are kids in adult clothing!

Leo children are athletic and courageous, no tree too high! They are leaders of their mates, and are often kindly to one who cries or is alone. The other side of the coin is shy beyond words and may take years to grow out of it. Either way, they are known to be stubborn and want what they want, and they want it now! As they age, they can be more patient, but they will steadily advocate their position until they win out.

Encourage all Leos to be creative at every age! Put the camera in their hands. Give them the water colors, the guitar. Put them in the play. Dress-ups and fantastic hair are terrific fun! Give them the dance shoes. They will give spirited shining performances and be featured at the gallery! They are the Full Moons of our night skies!

Teens and young Leos may be impatient with schooling, but the right classes and instructors will keep them on the edge of their seats. They need praise and recognition to thrive to maximum. Their downfalls may be being bullies or arrogant. Both factors are fear based, and Leos want to be loved, adored. They need to know we all have limitations, including them, and that’s ok. We can be loved just the way we are when we are as we are. And sometimes we all make all too human mistakes. It helps if they know it isn’t always their turn. Also, there’s a distinction between being admired because you breathe and admired for what you have contributed. Both are nice.

Careers need to be large enough to accommodate their talent! As little ones, don’t overwhelm them with your expectations, but don’t be surprised if they want more than what you would let them have. As young people, doing something that makes their heart sing makes them learn fast, achieve higher positions early on. They can bring rave reviews to your business. Send them to teaching and coaching seminars. Let them be on their own enough to find their own style of leadership.

Heart and Spine. Health and robust activity requires a good heart and a strong spine. Standing up to your life and meeting it with love, being who you ARE, loving yourself are gifts. Being ‘selfish’ is an exploration of your character. When you are in your personal niche, it becomes self realization. We create ourselves as we go, changing, flexing our latest muscles, feeling good about life.

As elders, Leos can stand tall in their Spirit. They are revered, respected. There is always some notable feature. Elder women may be classy dressers. Elder men may be quite the gentleman, always treating their woman like a lady.

Live deep, stand tall, love well!

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron
New Moon, First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!

Full Snow Moon – Jupiter Opposite Chiron!
Monday February 22, 10:20 AM Pacific at 3 Virgo 34

Pisces Earth Moon Gaia Josephine Wall Prayer Surrender Gratitude Grace
Magical Beauty by Josephine Wall, birthdate unknown – May 1947

Pisces and Virgo are ever in humble grace and gratitude. Dreams and details run through their minds, Spirit sees their wholeness. There is a holy union of being on this Earth and being guided by greater Beings. True, there are times we feel bereft, forsaken, that things are impossible, but often there are also so many unexpected kindnesses and blessings. Full Moon miracles open our hearts to the immense possibilities our our consciousness.

Jupiter in Virgo, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries have been traveling together since 2015 and will continue to through 2017! See more about this magical mix! The triangle is tied together by the Pisces Full Moon and the March 8 Solar Eclipse!

The Virgo/Pisces Full Snow Moon is the day before the second Jupiter opposite Chiron.

The Pisces New Moon, first Solar Eclipse of 2016, is two days after the second Jupiter inconjunct Uranus.

The Full Moon Sun and Moon are conjunct and opposition Neptune, and they, the North and South nodes, and the Jupiter opposition Chiron all span the Virgo/Pisces axis! There are three ways to benefit from these so very different, yet similar signs! Virgo is earthy and the Cosmic Gardener. Pisces is the Visionary making it meaningful, the Garden of Life. Both want to improve our conditions, Virgo our daily health, Pisces our immortal Soul! Virgo will work overtime again and again, will save your life with herbs and nursing, or improve your helpful business. Pisces is noted or giving their lives to a cause, being a Savior! Virgo helps with the techniques and technical, while Pisces puts on the show of a lifetime illustrating the sheer brilliance of Being, a Star!

Neptune IS the planet of Pisces! With the Sun in Pisces coming to it, there is a communion with one’s higher Self in person! They have an annual meeting, conjunction, but not often at a Full Moon! There may be a symbolic coming into acknowledgement, acceptance, understanding of the glory of heart of Pisces. There may be a surrender of ego to an immersion into the sea of all souls. Aquarius distinguishes the unity of friend to friend; Pisces sees no boundary ~ we ARE all ONE. Compassion is a strength gained by ‘seeing’ the sorrows, fears, fearlessness and abiding joys of another. We can walk together in understanding.

Fixed Star Fomalhaut is at 3 Pisces 52, with the Sun. It is the eye of the Southern Fish, one of the four Royal Stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars. Fomalhaut represents archangel Gabriel. Winter Solstice is its time. Creativity, musical talent, and idealism are important qualities. It is said when we are aligned with our Soul purpose things go well, if corrupt, downfall is on the way. Take a look at what Marina Macario has to say.

At the other side is the Moon in Virgo running around tending everything! The table of celebration is in order, the food and wine precisely and healthily selected, the room lighting adjusted, and whatever is needed is keenly and kindly processed. She Moon is incredibly supportive. Workers are carefully chosen, pets are kept happy. Pisces doesn’t always realize the full extent of the efforts or give appreciation, but Virgo is practical and knows why it is important the meeting goes well. Pisces often glides on the intuition of the connections of Souls. However, when Virgo is in trouble, Pisces can see the cause within, helping with the root rather than the meds. We all have our gifts.

11:59 AM Pacific, one minute to noon, Jupiter makes its second exact opposition with Chiron Feb 23 the day after the Pisces/Virgo Full Snow Moon! The gateway has been open and polished. In the evening, the Moon moves forward to conjunct Jupiter at 6:44 PM Pacific, opposes Chiron at 6:50 PM Pacific! Moon carries the Full Moon energy to the opposition. She pampers yet demands quality performance.

Jupiter in Virgo watches from the opposite vantage point with way above average organizational skills. With ethics and honesty it takes care of our health so we can do the good business of life, enjoy or time with our fellows to the fullest. Jupiter in this sign minimizes costs with efficient efforts and maximizes the applications of our highly crafted skills! In Virgo, Jupiter can be playful, sometimes lazy or doesn’t show up for work in Virgo, or the most demanding you ever saw! Small details that others don’t see, pivotal to our success, are taken care of with a fine tooth comb! Even our pets are well tended! Prepare to be offered a full package deal. Jupiter in Virgo knows how true it is that all things are connected. Being apart, opposite Chiron, is an excellent position with the least attachment. Their perspective is priceless. See more!

Chiron was a bad boy Centaur in the early days, and in Pisces can become invisible, sharing some traits with Jupiter. If dedicated as the superb healer it can be, you better do your part if you have to crawl to get there! So much can be learned. In Pisces the wisdom applies to matters of the fluids in our bodies, the natural tidal flow of our consciousness. Pisces the Sensitive is an empath, compassionate psychic. Moon brings her feelings to the recipe. Sometimes it’s not funny at all, and you know the glower is well deserved. Other times you gotta laugh, it’s life, perfect and imperfect as always!

Jupiter is retrograding back to trine Pluto March 16, an aspect not to miss! Pay attention to the date! Get any grant applications IN, chat up potential sponsors, donors. Ask for monies owed. Look for secure ways to invest with trusted partners. See if your company can work for other large companies rather than one small job at a time. This is also a healing time. Virgo has trustworthy remedies. Capricorn wisely seeks council of experienced professionals. Jupiter is hips/thighs, Virgo small intestines. Pluto is guts and sexual organs, Capricorn bones, teeth, skin. Let go of obsessive behaviors, let new healing strategies work on a steady basis, working systemically, until it becomes a habit.

Jupiter next squares Saturn in a powerful 1, 2 connection from Feb 20 to June 15, just under a 4 month period! Either Jupiter amplifies Saturn’s doubts or depressions, or cheers Saturn up and they easily surpass previous goals! Saturn may have been dutifully trudging, but Jupiter in Virgo has new terrifically sensible ideas right down to the details that cheer Saturn up. If Jupiter trine Pluto got funding as hoped, Jupiter square Saturn applies it where most needed and that money may vanish before you believe it. Hopefully that will bring peace of mind. There may be additional expenses or things cost more than anticipated, so be frugal for now. At any rate, plans are made and work will be done to mend issues. Or, work may come to a standstill temporarily as assessments are made, proper materials selected, strengthening reinforced, and further funding sought. Sometimes a rest is a blessing.

Saturn in Sagittarius is in close square with Chiron and trine Uranus, but retrogrades before either aspect is made. With Uranus it is a near miss, not quite making the connection as hoped. Keep the info to try again later. Due to Saturn’s retrograde, the exact trine isn’t made until Dec 24! Until then, keep courting. With Chiron it’s a close call. What scares us almost happens, definitely a warning to be heeded. Take care of your business, education and health if this aspect affects your chart. If it looks like advancements may be denied, do what is needed to bring your resume up to par, take care of any obstacles before they take root.Uranus and Pluto are still thundering along closely, sometimes scaring the wits out of us, other times inspiring us to race far beyond the finish with our arms outflung for the sheer exhilaration of it all! Stunted, stunned or crazy with adventure or all of the above! Whatever it is, who would have expected that!?!? From old to young, it’s kinda like Bernie and the young vote! Research is going at top speed. Electronics are verbing! Beasts and monsters are being seen for their surprising values all over the world. Animals are being treated more humanely, new laws made. Cruel wrongdoers are publicly called out by society at large for their obscene behavior, not getting away with local injustices. The Internet is doing its job so we see what’s really behind what’s going on. Let Freedom ring! 

To Peace and Power for the Long Term Good for All

New Moon – First 2016 Solar Eclipse –
Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, 18 Degs, Stellium, Saturn T, Asterism!
Tuesday Mar 8 at 5:54 PM Pacific – 18 Pisces 56

Pisces 2016 Solar Eclipse New Moon Northern Lights

The Northern Lights and part of the Milky Way on a moonless night in Kolgrafarfjordur fjord in Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Western Iceland. http://www.arctic-images.com/ljosid/ 

Like a rainbow at night, the New Moon lets the stars of the Milky Way shimmer their energy to us. It’s quiet.

Solar Eclipse Pisces Stellium! Five factors are in Pisces! That’s five ways to look at Pisces, connect with them, them with you! That’s five ways for Pisces to send and receive.

Mercury is with Neptune, the Pisces planet! Mercury is thinking, communications, logic, but in Pisces it surrenders to a more ephemeral conduit, the conduit itself changing by what it perceives! Nothing about it is static. It believes what it sees as it sees it. It doesn’t always remember the past, even five minutes ago, and it may not matter that is does. Everything is real in the moment, 100% up to date! Logic is diffused as myriads of ideas and whims flit by. It is absorptive, and the accumulation of all the ideas makes things whole and evolutionary! To others this may appear as confusion or lies, depending on which moment you are there, then later get a whole set of different answers. Just know that your friend is ever changing. It’s a kind of intelligence.

Moon and Sun are together! Perhaps in Pisces they are merged as they can ever be. Pisces often doesn’t discuss, they feel, and feel is a small word for the experience. It’s way more than twins. There is no difference, not even a blur. Moon is absorbed by Sun, Moon is more than stealthy. She simply becomes one with Sun. Without his knowing, she reads his every nuance, entirety of Spirit, connotation of Being. Caring is surrendered. Ego is surrendered. They simply are.

The Moon was with Jupiter in the opposition Chiron the day after our previous Full Snow Moon, Lunar Eclipse. Now it has circled to the opposite side with Chiron, caught up with Sun, is just barely past the opposition with Jupiter, semi sextile Uranus, all four at 18 degrees!

Moon and Sun with Chiron put Sun and Moonlight, Moon’s caring and compassion, into places we fear will never heal. As they merge with Chiron, there is a frisson, a knowing what needs doing. It’s personal. As a healer, your core ability will be updated. You may not understand it immediately, but it will spread through your workaday being, with more revealed in the Dreamtime. It may be subtle, but oh, how profound. Trust your Spirit. Relationships will shift to a new understanding, some to be rightfully abandoned, completed, others to be more musical, deeply in accord.

The Eclipse and Chiron are in a T Square with Jupiter opposite and Saturn square. The Sun square Saturn was all the previous week and the dust is settling, but the Moon made the square only two days ago, not quite letting us forget. Sun or Moon square Saturn usually isn’t so fun. We need to face what shames us. It doesn’t matter if others tell us we are great. We know what we hide. Keeping that in mind, do the things that make the change. The wonderful semi sextile with Uranus in Aries helps us find or work with friends or groups that encourage us to get on our own two feet!

Shortly, March 23, Jupiter Rx will square Saturn exactly! We are already in the sequence, it finishes June 15. Saturn is having more fun than usual in Sagittarius, and Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! It can be disconcerting to be pestered to fun when you just like doing your ordained work and have been such a good person, LOL. But let it loose a bit and what doesn’t fall away, will be a valued and enjoyable part of the new program. Probably will take a bit of getting used to. Expand your production a bit and see if the computer results back up your hopes. If not, check for alternative methods until you get the right combination. On a completely different note, for those of you that are getting older, think of your long term plans, retirement. Square things up so it will be comfortable. Virgo and Saturn are earthy, common sense, practical. They will help you let go of old outmoded ideas, make wise choices now!

Nov 5 Jupiter was inconjunct Uranus, the ChangeMaker! We were pulled a wee bit off course, only to discover it was the perfect move! Off to the side was a bright surprise that awakened or reawakened something unique in us, a talent that hadn’t risen yet or has lain dormant for awhile. This aspect was exact again two days before the New Moon, March 6. It again nudged a gateway open, an obstacle aside, this time to allow the deep Soul connection of the New Moon in Pisces. They are unavoidably at the same degrees! Opposites both separate and call each other’s names. Separation indicates a culmination, the capacity for difference and tolerance. It gives space to see how the other fits in the world, lets us breathe and be who we are on our own. We may split off, continuing on separate ways, but ever having been influenced by the ones we leave behind who helped or hindered. In some respects, separation inevitably becomes closer as the planets continue along their circle. That handshake across the table or across the chasm of cultural difference, ages, gender, sexual preferences, opens us to sharing the best each has to offer, to learn about why other people make the choices they do.

This inconjunct and Uranus semi sextile the Eclipse calls for adjustment, more awareness. Friends make a difference. Whether we change or not makes a difference. Do we choose to act alone, take the point? Or do we find other Souls to align with and multiply our powers across the community, the world? It may be time to allow difference and embrace new standards. It’s time to acknowledge the essence, start a new plan, organize and stick to it!

Uranus square Pluto Though not in exact aspect, they may as well be because of their duration, how closely they are traveling, especially if they affect your personal chart! Uranus was born to upset the old sacred archetypes. Ever more so being in Aries, the rights fighter, leader, rebellious! The more they use the genius ahead of its time, the deeper Pluto in Capricorn digs in, protecting deeply entrenched systems. Clash of the Titans effect, definitely some casualties. Ironically, Pluto loves a good plunge into clean up and recycle jobs and betrays the combination of Capricorn’s lock. So when it’s open, let a few experts take a look, see what to keep and save, what to let go of. Good luck.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are making an equidistant ‘ASTERISM,’ pattern. At both ends of the purple line across the top of the chart, see there are red lines and blue lines. The reds are the squares, the blue are the trines! Equidistant patterns have a peculiarly potent power exchange, especially when all the degrees are so close! Uranus and Jupiter are at 18, as is the New Moon Eclipse! Saturn is at 16, Pluto at 17, Chiron at 20. That’s 7 factors within 4 degrees of each other. Squares are intended to be both breakaways and builders. Trines smooth out the rough spots. The purple line, an inconjunct, helps us consider adjustments that make a difference to the outcome.

March 16, only 8 days after our New Moon, Jupiter trine Pluto, part of the asterism, is exact the second time! This is a wonderfully profitable aspect when used well, if in good connection with your personal chart! There are possibilities of a tremendous healing, the most meaningful travels of a lifetime. Secrets will come out, often in a good way. See more!

Saturn trine Uranus also in the asterism, is close, very close, but retrogrades at 16 degrees. There are whispers, hints and hopes, but the exact aspect won’t happen until months away on Christmas Eve! Consider the potential of long term professional alliances, associations. Court them, put it on your calendar to connect in collaboration mid November, December.

Endings and beginnings are natural! As the Moon comes to the Sun, a cycle is ending, maturity, accomplishment. Take credit. The Moon is given a Sunburst infusion in the nature of the Sign they are in. We don’t think of Pisces as so radiant a sign, more likely retiring, but we can hear the songs and see the lights of a large concert for miles around! Many Pisceans are magical musicians, chameleon actors that imprint our Souls, superb performers from tender to crescendo in the limelight! They run huge oceanic ventures of all kinds, in charge of the lives of many others! They need a terrific energy charge to wield these enterprises. Please open your arms wide this Eclipse and let that straight shot pierce your defenses, cleanse and brighten your every molecule!

Blessed be, make it so.

This Eclipse will be visible primarily in Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi and from locations in the Pacific ocean.

FULL Grain Moon!
New Moon Solar Eclipse!   

Full Grain Moon – Planetary Pairing!
Saturday August 29, at 11:35 AM Pacific – 6 Pisces 6

Virgo Full Grain Moon Planetary Pairing

Jupiter in Virgo’s first Full Moon and the Sun is in Virgo!

There are three planetary pairings, aka conjunctions, one at each end of the Full Moon and the Mars Venus pair. The Sun is leaving Jupiter, Venus is going back for Mars, Moon is proactively approaching Neptune in its own sign Pisces! Though not a planetary pair, Mercury in Libra is just leaving the North Node. There are unions and emphasis where each pair is. They are sharing their wisdom with each other, then it’s on to their next meeting on the Path.

Sun Virgo left Jupiter 3 days ago, still close enough for reminders. Sun and Jupiter have more vitality than is usual for Virgo. Virgos tend more to be thinkers and to work at intricate tasks, computers are easy. Sun and Jupiter take it on like it is nothing! Take advantage of this to find an exercise system that livens more of your body, keeps you humming all day! Take a walk at lunch! Get your face lifted to the Sun, oxygen to your brain, get OUT of the office! Jupiter loves a great story and in Virgo, just for the fun of it, embellishes it with an array of details that make it super credible. Volumes will be written!

Sun’s next stop is the North Node in Libra Sep 24! Mercury, Sun’s faithful companion, has just passed the North Node, and will later retrograde back to meet the Sun Sep 30! The three of them will exchange relationship tips. Sun says trust yourself, come from the heart. The North Node says give and take, listen, share, enhance each other. Mercury wants to talk it through, listen, try out some new ideas, give appreciation and sing praises!

Moon in Pisces, is about to embrace Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, in only hours, at 3:21 PM Pacific, carrying that encounter on to Chiron on Aug 31 at 3:20 PM Pacific. If you Neptunians/Pisceans don’t want a bunch of hugs and food offerings, either run for it or stand tall and don’t act like any kind of wimp. If you adore being smothered and smooched, just stand still and happily keep smiling and saying thank you, thank you! You may get a month of groceries and your laundry taken to be done up right properly. LOL! If only!

Once the feasting is done, photos taken, we realize the great Spirit of family, generation on generation, the magic of Motherhood. There have been sacred women, divine feminine beings, since the beginning of time. Their Light continues to be carried on though women like Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai, youngest winner, at 16, of the Nobel Peace Prize. Her chart. Neptune in Pisces knows true reverence, recognizes intrinsic purity. It steeps in the beauty of the Soul, the Child and Mother in us all. It may have deep challenges, confusing layers, nightmares of addictions, but there are Miracles and often an abiding Faith clothes a wellspring of strength we didn’t know we had.

Sun and Jupiter and Moon and Neptune are a fabulous foursome in close degrees with no other planets in the chart involved unless you count the Mercury semi-sextile Jupiter! Sun and Jupiter can get the job done! Moon and Neptune can feed the troops, make melodies, and provide inspiration, body and Soul!

Mercury in Libra semi-sextile Jupiter thinks of the purpose, holds the key to the greater direction. It is adept at connecting well with good people who are wanting the same things. It has the ability to see both sides, keep a reasonable peace while we get to know each other better. It explains different cultural needs, has respect, aims for fairness. Jupiter in Virgo runs the craft guilds and broadcasts about the fine things it makes, services it provides. Mercury sees the quality, and blogs the story, gets the word out. As it thinks round and about, it comes up with further trigger ideas Jupiter can introduce to its system, expanding even further! Jupiter in Virgo requires a profound meaning for what they do as well as doing a mechanically exquisite job.

Mercury is just leaving the Moon’s North node. Once a year it checks in with the Dragon’s Head, Caput. The Moon’s nodes are on a 19 year cycle, so sometimes the conjunction is in the same sign, sometimes not. Since the nodes are generally retrograde, reversing through the signs, the conjunction is usually in the preceding sign. The South Node is thought to signify our past, the North our present and future. The north may be an unsure place, still exploring and learning. With a conjunction, there is always an opposition, so Mercury is querying where things are going while there is an observable knowing where things have already been. The South is always exactly opposite the North Node, so is in Aries, sign of the Warrior, Initiation, Independence, very new beginnings! Libra is more cautious and considerate, cleverly saving its own skin, able to dodge bullets it never admits were fired, avoiding disharmony. Or, it is the attorney naming and fighting battles in behalf of their client?!

Mercury will retrograde Sep 17 and go back to meet the Sun coming forward on Sep 30. The Jupiter collection, and the North Node exchange will be shared into the Light of the Sun, then in Libra. Jupiter’s optimism, plans for the future will be happily received, faith restored, and passed on to many others. North Node in Libra shall have reached beyond the past. Through Mercury it invites Sun to find others of like mind, to make beauty every day. It is blessed to think good thoughts, hold itself to a higher standard, be a peer at a higher level of equals!

Venus retrograde still wants what she wants and she’s going back to get it! Mars is pretty handsome and daredevil courageous in Leo; how can she resist?! Later in the day, after the Moon Chiron connection on the 31st, she reaches him at 10:04 PM Pacific! The 31st is a Monday or I would recommend a party! A rendezvous is minimum! Wine and cheese, gifts, flowers, pretty clothes. The Moon will still be big and bright after the Full Moon. She wants Mars to be successful, offers him a cloak of charm and grace to soothe and smooth his way. She sees his value as a front man, salesman, first responder, and offers him the job. He’s quick and no-nonsense, gets to the point and gets things done, gets people going quick time! He doesn’t mind her overtures, she’s sweet. But if too sugary, he’s outta there!

This pair is inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Leo likes the professional success of Capricorn and Cap likes the flair and notice Leo lends to a solid performance! Leo loves spending and giving; Capricorn may not be so inclined to give as much of their hard-earned energy, but rather would place it for most effect. Venus and Mars love a great party, and Cappies like it if it includes the CEO and is for a cause that is to purpose for the company. Pluto in Cap tones down and conserves, focuses powerfully, succeeding at monumental achievements! Venus and Mars in Leo add spice and playfulness, dancing off to the races at the drop of a hat! All work will never be enough! LOL Pluto may see a way to put these two to work, like on the social committee, to the great pleasure of all!

Venus goes Direct, forward from her retrograde, Sep 6, moves into Virgo Oct 8. Her next conjunction is Oct 26 with Jupiter! That is considered a most fortunate combination! Venus brings Love, money and beauty. In Virgo that is to the finest detail, or maybe a host of details that make a greater beauty than of any one detail by itself! The quality of craftsmanship in itself may be the beauty! Jupiter, planet of plenty, and of expansion and growth, ups the amps, makes a template for repeat performances! The technique becomes famous! Jupiter takes it public, demonstrating the potential and it catches fire! The book has a lovely perfect artistic cover, gets published, goes viral! Travel in your line of work; go to health seminars; get training at specialty schools – apply for the instructor’s position!

All these planets have a mission, merging, moving on. Each stop has productive information for the next.

Chiron and Uranus are in a 13 minute magic semi-sextile. They have been in a close pattern since 2008 and will be to 2021, thirteen years! Aug 19 they were exactly semi-sextile and will be within a degree of each other, and exact again Nov 25, the day of the Sagittarius Full Moon, the day before ThanksGiving! Chiron in Pisces, heals and teaches about our Souls, our Spirit, while Uranus in Aries awakens collective consciousness, seeks independence and freedom, a Change Maker. It may be a small aspect, but the ripples across the oceans and airwaves leave no particle untouched. See more!

This combination is ahead of its times, way ahead! The Tipping Point is being transcended. Stand together and keep at it. Let’s change the process of healing itself and share it around the world. Every conscious minute we are all connected. Make it count.

Virgo New Moon SOLAR ECLIPSE – Pluto T Square! 
Saturday September 12, at 11:41 PM Pacific – 20 Virgo 10

Jupiter in Virgo’s first Solar Eclipse, and, the Eclipse is in Virgo!Solar Eclipse Nov 2012 Geoff Sims Australia
Photographer Geoff Sims captured the beauty of the Nov 14, 2012 total solar eclipse above Pormpuraaw, Queensland, Australia. ‘We flew across Cape York Peninsula for this eclipse, in search of clear skies and dramatic scenery. A lone tree stood on an otherwise barren plain, providing the perfect silhouette against the lunar shadow.’ Used by permission. See more of Geoff’s fine images! 

I always think of eclipses as a transfusion of the mighty forces of Sun and Moon. Moon will be our channel for the people of and our planet Earth to let Sun know what’s up, where the Light is needed. The Sun will be shooting the Moon major energy to lighten the dark places. Moon, the Nurturer, will step it to the frequency our ability has the capacity to receive. She is a storage chamber as well, keeping it simmering, pouring out some of that reserve when ready for more Liquid Sun! Powerful ancient memories will emerge from the Shadows.

Besides being the first eclipse in Jupiter in Virgo, it is the last eclipse and New Moon in Saturn in Scorpio. There is a changing of the guard. The gateways to Virgo are officially opened! How we take care of ourselves is prime. The quality of our work is essential to our Spirits, both what we do and how we do it. We may be showing others that we love them by the little things we do for each other. Caring for our health is a way of giving ourselves a prosperous foundation. The good order of things frees our time to have quality time with each other.

Saturn is in its last 5 days in Scorpio, entering Sagittarius Sep 17 at 7:47 PM Pacific. Virgo tends the last needs, understands the intensity of what Scorpio has tried to put in place for the last 2+ years. Virgo may be called on to tie up loose ends, find out details that anchor Saturn’s hard work in an accessible fashion. This transition to Sagittarius may be a dramatic switch of focus. Saturn can harness runaway Sag energy and guide it well. The future must be potently planned in an arc of timely progression, that the gears may mesh in a smooth steady pace.

Moon and Sun are just 1 degree past opposition Chiron in Pisces and the inconjunct with Uranus in Aries. Chiron and Virgo are interested in healing. Chiron was a Medicine Man centaur, a teacher. Throughout time Virgo has been the herbalist, walking the village with her basket, the midwife, bedside counselor advisor, having wisewoman common sense. Chiron knows by the advance symptoms where the weak spots are. He teaches the healing techniques needed. At the New Moon, a quietening time, minds are more open to hear unfamiliar ideas. Make your visitor comfortable, select a safe place for the exchange.

The inconjunct with Uranus in Aries tweaks our attention slightly off center, inviting us to spare some moments for curiosity. There may be some deliciously shocking ideas in the offing that change our center of gravity! That also means pay careful attention to your driving and steps. There are extraordinary options available, subtle or blatant, that are on the brink of being accepted publicly! They may call for more independence on an immediate basis, but Saturn in Sagittarius will know how to introduce them to mainstream thinking as ideas whose time has come!

Mercury is just past square Pluto, but will retrograde shortly and make the square again! Mercury is opposed to Uranus, but retrogrades before the opposition is exact. They are forming a T Square with Pluto at the point! Uranus and Pluto are both retrograde. Uranus, faster, will come back to an almost one degree of square of each other. Both being slow moving outer planets, the energy will be carried for awhile. They are closest the last two days of Jan to Feb 6, 2016. That period will be a potent reminder for some of the difficulties many weathered 2010 through early 2015. Reconsider your losses, your recovery, that you were, perhaps, even unscathed! Some things you would do differently now; others are surprisingly best that they did happen.

Mercury in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries is an unsettled brilliant landscape! Mercury chatters and scatters not missing much. In Libra it automatically juxtaposes points of view, a rich consideration of premises, meeting tons of people. Uranus is the planet of genius, ahead of their time, exotic, perfectly unpredictable as they see things with split second comprehension! Aries is instantly filled with fiery aspirations and wants to do them now – why wait?!?! First there is one matter, then another. Curiosity is about at 12 on a scale of 10! Mercury can seem innocent enough, but if you want quiet, forget it. It may be apolitical, but Libra isn’t! They could easily slip slide into danger, and flip back out in a nick of time, shaking hands and laughing like crazy! Uranus in fiery Aries is a rebellious combo. They carry their own lighter. Though this aspect doesn’t become exact because Mercury retrogrades, it hints at possibilities that flavor Mercury’s retro scans of relationships, the balance of its life and mind, quality of attention, as it goes back through Libra.

Venus is just past inconjunct Pluto. Part of the last 3 days may have been a little sobering. There may have been some schisms, an inescapable or barely escaped loss of money. The hard work some do is truly impressive. The long term goals achieved by people with disabilities makes us weep in sadness and admiration. We are inspired and feel blessed for our own graces. Venus in Leo can be proud of their prowess, their dynamic attractiveness. They can bring honor and recognition, funding to people and projects that deserve.

Venus is about to trine Uranus, exact Sep 22, last day of Sun in Virgo, the day before Fall Equinox! Venus paints the blog post with Uranian bright colors! Uranus in Aries is remarkable leaders, initiation to brilliant new causes. It rules friendships door to door, worldwide flight and organizations, the internet! A simple Facebook posting can make a huge difference. Make that a series of posts! What you love and who you know affects 100s and more people. Entertainment may be extraordinary. If you have a message, shout it!

Mercury is slowing to retrograde Sep 17, so though closely sextile with Venus, giving a beautiful articulate message, they don’t close the deal because Mercury turns back. The idea is given, Mercury seeks Libra balance and regard, considers who is across the table, but for the time being, Venus prevails in Leo, thinking more of the individual’s contribution in this case.

Sep 16! The major eclipse aspect is Jupiter in Virgo, in its first aspect in Virgo with another outer planet, opposition Neptune. This chart, this eclipse, is the opening gateway to the opposition. This chart gathers information from Chiron, Uranus and Pluto. Jupiter opposite Neptune happens on the last day of Saturn in Scorpio, the eve of Saturn’s entry to Sagittarius. The opposition happens only this once. Oppositions often act like reflections. Neptune is in its own sign Pisces, 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. See more!

Now, do you know where YOUR little eclipse glasses are?! Well doggone it, if you are in North America, it won’t matter if you don’t. This one is only a partial eclipse, visible in Southern Africa, the southern half of Madagascar, northern half of Antarctica, and the southwestern Indian Ocean. It’s not our turn. It’s still exciting though, and we will be able to see some great images online, maybe even live from southern observatories!

Polish up your antennae, open your heart, prepare to send your own powerful information, keep focused on our collective consciousness. Virgo is the sign of small animals, pets. Have them with you; be with them. Lay out a simple altar by a tree you have an affinity with. Make a bread offering, lay out sacred plants, a bowl of water. Give thanks in honor of your Medicine Animal and the herbs that serve us.

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.
