Happy Valentine's Day!

Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces the third and last time Valentine’s Day Feb 14!  Taurus and Pisces can both be very sweet signs, though Taurus is sometimes thought to be selfish and unmovable, and Pisces simply oblivious.  Both have very strong associations with Venus, and so does Chiron!  Some think of Chiron as the ultimate relationship planet, THE marriage planet!  Venus associated with Taurus, can be a beautiful body, love, attracting money.  With Pisces, the love of Soul, soul mates, surrender to another or a cause one loves more than one loves oneself, the ability to live in sacrifice, poverty.  At times sacrifice, immersion to exclusion, can be a form of abdication, running away, non contribution, another form of selfishness.  Other times the Soul’s journey depends on letting go of materialism, solitude for healing.  Pisces and Taurus/Venus rule the Arts – Taurus is sculpting, Venus is beauty of all kinds, Pisces is film, theatre, music.  In simple earthly ways, Taurus is grains in the fields; Pisces provides the fishes – the loaves and the fishes – let no one go hungry, body or mind!  Jupiter wants generous well-being through knowledge.  Chiron is intentional healing, in Pisces, spiritual wisdom.  Learn and be healed, be wise and teach.  Education releases Magic!  More

Stand tall, Live deep, Love well!

June 21 we finished the last day of the Mercury in Cancer Grand square with Uranus, Pluto and Saturn. Some communications were stressed; there were some breakthroughs, there is still some fallout from decisions made at that time, regrets over contracts made or not made. This Grand Square was the first activation, of the SEVEN time Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. This was the first grand square formed with these planets since Uranus came within 5 degrees of its square to Pluto in the last week of April 2011. This long time, continuous Uranus square Pluto won’t become exact until June 23, 2012! It will continue in a 5 degree or less square with Pluto the entire time until June of 2015! Currently, the Uranus square Pluto has been further activated by two more Grand Squares.  The Sun in Cancer is finishing the June 26 to July 2 set, and will be followed by the Venus in Cancer set, July 7 to 13. Last, during Leo, Saturn having moved on, Mars in Cancer will T Square the remaining Uranus square Pluto August 9/10. Then, the Uranus square Pluto will be fully activated, charged! So, four planets, four different ways of doing, kinds of energy, are in process of activating the Uranus/Pluto square.

These 4 planets are adding the 4th component to the Grand Square, Cancer.  In the US, that is Mama Liberty that stands at our New York gateway, indicating giving shelter, a home that may be far away from loved ones.  Cancer is Mother’s love, unfailing or abandoned, skilled or doing the best one can.  Cancer provides a home in the Soul, and a homestead when possible.  It’s a water sign, irrigates the crops, keeps the nutrients coming.  Emotional, Cancer is onboard with how people are feeling, in sync with natural cycles, number one in business, great at the stock market!  Consumables are its best business, the things we need to live – clothing, food, toothpaste, home furnishings, storage devices, and especially, kitchen items.  These 4 planets ‘speak’ in behalf of our daily needs, a cherished regard that makes our flower bloom.

The Grand Square series opened with Mercury, amazing exchanges of information.  The Sun is bringing a more tender and personal yet creative perception.  Venus will add a touch of sweet, a more kindly attractive rendering.  All have been and will be tempered by Saturn in Libra’s standards, perhaps a taste of reluctance or caution! Mars will have no such constraints as Saturn shall have moved on out of the Grand Square. Mars will spontaneously act in behalf of potential being born right before our eyes! Blending old structures with new internet and electronics, resurrecting forgotten inventions and inventories, deconstructing and reusing secret resources and alliances, thinking 100s of years ahead, will be valuable skills. Retirement opportunities will be like never before. New careers will be invented at a breathtaking pace! The role of Fatherhood and Manhood will be relieved and enhanced. Archaeology will reveal further profound information.

This Uranus square Pluto goes through June of 2015. The face of governments will go dramatically toward sustainability. Protecting green assets and water will become more important than protecting oil interests.  Concerns of right and reasonable uses of resources will be at the top of our list.

May we meet all our challenges, may it go well with you.

MOON Void of Course ALL DAY daytime 10 times in Cancer!  June 22, 27 and July 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17.  VC is thought of in two main ways.  Nothing will come of it; there is nothing to stop it.  Whichever school you are of, be wise about making appointments, starting projects, on those days.  For more on Void of Course, see the last item on the page at this link.

July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9 Cancer finishes our sequence of 3 eclipses in a row. Feeling what you are saying, doing, is vital. Your feelings have SUCH potency.  Your effect on others runs a course from one person to the next.  Seeing how much your feelings affect those around you may make you choose to divert your attention to more positive feelings.  Feelings can consume your attention so you don’t think or see anything else, holding you from seeing out in front of you, and moving forward. Emotions have enormous effect on your vitality and health.  Emotions tell you what’s up, and how important it is!  Take good care of yourself, like what you feed yourself.  Good organic food creates your chemical balance, makes a difference.

One of the true Cancer gifts is loving people unconditionally.  We see it with Mom’s and their children.  It’s a true power – they can lift that car right off their kid!  Practice that power of love yourself, to yourself, to others, adults.  Often what seems irrational about them, scares us, but when we sit with them for a time, walk in their shoes, they become simple and understandable, maybe a lot like us!  Even if not, all beings deserve love and care?  If the Soul is of many life times duration, as some of us speculate, fostering a self worthiness can go a long way in healing.  It gives them the message they are worth it.

Happy Eclipse!

Saturn turned direct, forward, June 12, but is still holding a one degree orb, range, to his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) until July 8.  As said last month, ‘those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future.  Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference.  Focus and do your best.  Make yourself proud!  Now’s the time to turn around, take it forward!’

Jupiter is now well founded in Taurus, up to 3 degrees, working its way to the Retrograde station at 10 degrees!  Familiar degree?!  It will be stationary at 10 degrees from Aug 15 to Sep 14.  To me this is significant because this is the other sign VENUS rules.  Libra, and Taurus.  It will hold this 150 degrees, quincunx, inconjunct, away from the 10 degree Libra position that Saturn is now holding.  Taurus and Libra both have to do with love and beauty.  Taurus is of money and worldly goods, a lovely body to sculpt, earth herself.  Libra is of marriage love, grace, and etiquette, fine arts, exquisite landscapes.  Saturn in Libra has called us to build this Libran beauty into our lives, each our own way, to take time for grace, allow a patina of maturity, respect.  Jupiter in Taurus invites a recognition and acceptance of organic, intrinsic being, what is, basic values.  It senses a solid step in the ‘right’ direction.  It sees a broader beauty that comes from simple peace.  Yoga.  As Swami Krishnananda says, it is ‘a perceptional change, and not merely an act of doing something with your body.’

In this case, in the sequence of time, Libra has been first, Taurus will follow.  That’s in reverse of zodiacal order.  So humans and their personal balance, and their balance among our peers comes first.  How we treat our self, each other.  If we don’t treat ourselves well and have bank of grace with some to spare, giveaway, how will we be magnetic and attract beauty, with the financial poise that brings peace?  Sometimes a perfect storm clears the path; other times, a gentle fearless course, a smile at your enemy, dispels the battle, quells the defenses.  Through the lovingness of another (Libra), a courtship of Spirit, we are blessed with seeing, feeling, we are so very ok to BE our Self, just the way we are (Taurus).  Divine.

Fascinating combination, Jupiter in Taurus.  In Taurus Jupiter is grounded, toned down, less needing to wander off, pleased with where it has landed, becomes more the observer, offers options for expansion.  Taurus is jazzed up with Jupiter on its turf, gets curious with the ‘what ifs,’ is a wee bit more motivated, less its predictable self, dabbles in foreign affairs.  The rolling stone gathers no moss.

The Aries Fire Stellium is OVER.  Now as we enter Taurus, the sign of loyalty and steadfastness, what was new, or did you start, during that Aries stellium, that you would like to continue to have in your life?  What value did you bring in that you are happy to maintain?  I have a new student who is new to astrology, and she is taking in the principles amazingly quickly!  I started sharing some more garden space with another community gardener, and intend to grow crops I will harvest to store for winter food.

Wise old Saturn is holding the fort at his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) from May 18 to July 8, turning direct (forward) June 12.  Those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future.  Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference.  Focus and do your best.  Make yourself proud!

Jupiter is making his last stand in Aries until entering earthy Taurus June 4, starting off a fine Saturday!  That will leave only Uranus in Aries, the lone wolf on its own again, but happily so in a sign of its same spirit, both Uranus and Aries loving freedom and independence!  Jupiter in Aries gives a last chance these 14 days to start what we will, get educated to be encouraged, have confidence, to lead the way, or follow someone we trust well.  It could be more fun than you have ever had before!  Frolicking is good!  Roller skate, hike, ride your bike!  Continue it with Jupiter in Taurus exercise; do the fun kind!  Long horseback rides, mountain walks, walk your dog!  Endurance and strength sports are satisfying.  Long distance and heavy weight.

Jupiter, good luck, fame, huge growth, in attractive Venus ruled Taurus can attract more money than God – they call it a BULL MARKET when the stock market is going UP!  Jupiter in Taurus can keep that money, hordes of it, may travel to the ashram for an extended stay, found a non-profit organic farm, raise horses, buy fine art, start an imported cosmetics franchise, do melting massages at the spa on the train, drive a huge moving truck, give sculpting seminars!  It may get off to a slow start, but once rolling, it just keeps going.  Dedicated, determined, loyal.  Simple, common sense solutions.  Luxurious hair, earthy beauty, natural fabrics, furs.  It looks further ahead than its own two feet, so makes ‘lucky’ choices.  Well grounded, centered, satisfied, peaceful.  Smooth jazz.

Jupiter may, at this time, be even a bit more languid than just the easy-go-flow of Taurus because it is sextile Neptune (only this one time, not the usual 3 times) upon entry into Taurus, makes the exact aspect June 8!  Both are ‘religious’ in that Jupiter rules churches and sets the tenets of faith; Neptune is the Pisces planet, Pisces being the sign of spiritualism, meditation, meeting God on your own terms, often religious diversity.  Jupiter usually calls for adherence to the church’s philosophy, though can be open-minded and take up religious studies.  Pisces, is perhaps more Buddhism oriented, compassionate, yet can believe so passionately as to give one’s life for the cause, a devotee who lives in silence and service in the spiritual abode 24/7.  This aspect offers what works for you, the best of both, in your everyday life.  Jupiter in Taurus loves the armchair more than the airfare.  There better be a good reason to take that trip.  Probably chooses to make oms at home!  Neptune is now in Pisces, its own sign.  It, like Taurus, is usually gentle.  But don’t let this fool you.  Being gentle is one of the greatest powers on earth.  A good teacher can ask clever questions, sneak right up on you and let you think you thought of it yourself!  Feeling and being safe, opens all the gateways for learning.  Your eyes open right up wide with the happiness of the leap – insights, epiphanies, are the order of the day!  Let it be!  Make music!

Aries is the ram and lamb; Taurus is the bull, cattle for meat, cows for milk.  Gemini is the first ‘human’ sign, the Twins, an air sign ruling the lungs, our very breath of life, the same breath we use to communicate the Word.  Gemini is also the hands we reach out with to touch heal one another, a handshake, an honoring acknowledgement.  Without communication we wither.  Feeling unheard, unaccepted, so alone, we can just die.  At the least, we stop talking.

In some ways we are all ‘Another yourself.’  We all have all the signs, planets and houses.  There is a harmonic, an understanding, if we know where to look for it.  I believe it is true that Souls are at different levels, making communications impossible if the gap is too large, yet the harmonic is still there.  One of the two can see it, perhaps lay a path of opportunity.  I believe sometimes spirits can be so broken as to be irreparable.  A seasoned teacher/healer learns when to let go and move on to help who can be helped.  We are called because we sense the harmonic, a place in our self that needed a similar healing, even just a simple recognition of suffering, that makes us yearn to put in a seed of change, a comforting touch.  Such it is when we perceive ‘I am another yourself.’

Chatting  you up is often so not casual or frivolous as many think.  It’s a fine diversion, an invitation to change your focus, a time placeholder until your thoughts get in order.  It’s often quite calming.

Geminis are fabulous at keeping us informed moment to moment, current affairs right here in the ‘hood!  Magazines, blogs, the news, newsletters, the letter from your GrandMa, over your fence to the neighbors,  coupons in the mail, your local errands!  Get tickets for two!

Sibs, of course.  Another form of ‘twins’ ‘cause they are in your tribe.  Even though they don’t agree with you, they came from where you came from, and they ‘get’ it.

Sports involving twosomes – tennis is a favorite, an on your feet whole body exchange.  Just like a twin, you must mirror, can even anticipate, the other’s action to do well in the game.  Twins in practice!

Pets come in twosomes – they need someone of their kind to talk/play with, to fully grow.

Contracts are one of Gemini’s specialties.  And calligraphy.  Might as well pretty it up, written words flow just like a living voice!

Wherever Gemini is, there will be curiosity and change as ideas are explored!  Diversity is their gift, adaptability their Ace!  Offer your Gemini children many
opportunities to strengthen their mind muscle to make good choices!  They are not your clone, their planets have moved further ahead than where yours were when you were born, but they still have all those same signs, planets and houses, just in different places.  That crosses all generations.  Take special time with them to understand, for they are the latest version of another yourself.


On another note, how Gemini can a day get?!

Last night, May 19, I went to see the Premiere of Identical, a movie about identical twin boys, one sweet spirited, the other ‘evil’ – a killer who kills to ‘protect’ his twin.  Earlier in the day I had a client who has recently had a facelift.  Isn’t she still ‘identical’ to herself?  Yet, she is ‘facing’ a difficult family situation where she is about to set lifelong needed boundaries, is putting a new ‘face’ on her affairs in other realms of her life as well, including doing some remodeling!  Got me to thinking.  Gemini, to its great credit and advantage, is two-faced, two people, male/female.  Gemini has double the options, and keeps multiplying!  We can be face to face, face off, or have your back, eyes in the back of your head, aware of the many facets of a situation!


Gemini Donald Trump

Gemini, June 14, 1946, Donald Trump, has been in the news lately as a presidential candidate who dropped out!  Trump is a TV Celebrity, real estate mogul.  Bill Gates is at $56B, Warren Buffett at $50B, DT a mere $2.7B per Forbes!  The announcement occurred with Jupiter square his natal Venus, Sun moving in to square his Mars, Chiron with Mars moving in to Yod his natal Neptune, hence the mysteries regarding his dealings, and a lost dream.  Trump has a mixed financial reputation as does June 5, 1951 Suze Orman, another famous Gemini in the money world.

Venus Transit/Eclipse Chart – 15 Gemini, June 5, 2012!

North American observers can see it the afternoon of June 5, 2012

I’m writing to you well in advance about this event because I think it is important and it precedes the 2012 Mayan calendar event by only a few months.  I am wanting you to hold it in your consciousness, every day be readying yourself for it, put it in your practice.  Be thinking how you can get others ready.  If I could, I would have you see it as sort of like a Soul bath.  You would lay in your lawn chair, facing the Sun, and vision yourself soaking up everything there is to receive, being bathed in loving Light.  You don’t even have to know what that is.  I believe it will come.  Clean your receptors, open your heart.  Those of you who know astrology, study how it will be placed in your chart.  I’m starting to talk about it with every client.

Venus Transits come in pairs spaced eight years apart, but the time between pairs is 122 years, then 105 years. Due to this pattern, only six Venus transits have been seen since the invention of the telescope.  The 2004 Venus Transit was the first of our latest pair. Before that, the most recent transit had been in 1882—which means no living people on Earth had seen a Venus transit when the 2004 event occurred.  Some speculate this rare Transit was one of the reasons the Mayans chose 2012 as their 26,000 year cycle end/start date.

The Venus eclipses have been in the first 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius since 60 AD!  The previous June 8, 2004 Venus Transit was at 17 Gemini, square Jupiter, widely square Moon/Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto (a loose Mutable Grand Cross involving 7 planets).  Mutable signs call for diversity, adaptability.  The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is mind and meaning, communications near and far, from here to the University.  The Virgo/Pisces axis is service and devotion, working hard and dreamtime magic, healers of body and Soul.

This Venus retrograde conjuncts/eclipses the Sun at 15 degrees airy space-in-the-mind Gemini, both of them square Mars at 16 degrees  get-the-job-done Virgo.  Venus in Gemini is loving communications, appreciations, expressing affection, valuing diversity of thinking.  Square Mars in Virgo calls for that desire being thought about to be put into action, to break through from pleasure to leadership on a daily basis.  Virgo tends the fort, wants all to be healthy, not too much sugar!   Jupiter is at 28 degrees, finishing Taurus about to enter Gemini, just one degree from the Pleiades.  Mercury is at 27 Gemini, in a one degree semi sextile with this Jupiter.  There will be a lot to say, some of it profound, about the goings on, because this 27 Gemini position is powerfully positioned exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER, downloading the information to the people!  This is important because the Mayan Calendar turnover at the Sacred Tree, Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012, occurs only 6 degrees from the Galactic Center!  The Moon is conjunct Pluto, sextile Chiron, square Uranus.  This Moon position highlights Pluto; Pluto at this degree becomes part of the Jupiter three planet 8 degree YOD in the Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar turnover!  All will not go as planned, surprises in the offing, some left behind, inevitable deep-rooted change due to fathers, sadly, something to ‘weep’ about, a longed for professional matter at stake.  Some things, though much talked about, must be done alone, yet profoundly affect our mates, or we are affected by them….

Venus Transit chart, June 5, 2012, 5:09 PM Pacific, Santa Barbara CA

Due to the huge size difference, no way can Venus ‘eclipse’ the Sun – we call it a Venus Transit.  In images it is a mere black dot in a sea of yellow fire as it crosses the face of the Sun!  I think of it as a voyage, pilgrimage, a rite of passage, across this magnificent space being.  It is a merger, an immersion, being imbued, saturated, infused, with the brightest Light our Solar System, our neighborhood in the galaxy, has to offer!  And it is lined right up with US!  Whew!  This is the Kleig Light of Heaven, from our Heart of Light, transmitted, telegraphed, filtered, amped, a direct shot!  Do you think flowers in bloom at that time will have more powerful pollen, seeds, essences?!  Not one pore of Venus will be left untouched.  If your love went cold, those with planets touched by this aspect, will be warmed right back up, solar charged!  You may feel you have plenty to give, more than ever!  Venus matters ‘enlightened’ will involve beauty, the arts, money, attractiveness, our values, love, kindness, graciousness, giving.  Perhaps you will be ‘weeping’ for JOY!

In Gemini, the Word, all those matters will be spoken of, listened for, written up!  Start your blog!  Multifaceted ideas will spring forth, diversity rules!  Marketing and advertising will be blessed with connecting people who love what is being sold.  Contracts will be better for all involved.  How we learn, pay attention, will improve, education be more cherished.  Learning a second language will be more valuable not only to improve memory, but to make special connections with people that used to be out of reach.  Touch healing, massage will flourish.  Sports like tennis, running, may make new records!  Very true, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.  Words of praise and appreciation make all the difference.  Love formula – 5 praise to 1 criticism.  What we think – what we focus our attention on, how we think – half full/half empty, matters.  Profoundly.

Venus rules first Taurus, Earth, then Libra, Air.  Taurus has a sensual beauty, rules celebrities and common sense, the monies at hand, the sitting Buddha, Earth, our self esteem.  Libra rules classic beauty, the fine arts, etiquette, Kwan Yin, balance, our adult peer relationships, marriage, how we see our value among our peers, legal proceedings.  We all have both signs in our charts.  Find out where they are in your chart, then read the Venus Transit into those houses, and which house the exact Transit is in, to see what and where you personally are activated.

Those of you with birthdates from the 2nd to the 8th of the month, and/or have planets from 12 to 19 degrees of any sign, will be the most affected by the Venus Transit.  Most air and fire signs will be comfortable with it, may flourish.  Other mutable signs, Virgo and Pisces at square, Sagittarius opposite, may be put off by all the ‘meaningless’ chit chat, may not even hear of it, or be surprised by, perhaps at first annoyed by, new ideas that seemed hidden!  Earth signs want to keep their routine, but there will surely be disruptions.  Water signs, though intrigued, may duck under to see what is happening below the surface and to rest their ears.

A client asked me …will all these changes be for the good?  In some ways the World is already better as people seek new solutions (energy production, government).  Any change proves there CAN be change.  With a lot of old world regimes toppling, there will be chaos and clumsy reform that may take years to settle.  That’s normal.  Change of such magnitude takes time.  Flooding with education and information (Gemini) are imperative.  Giving alternate solutions gives choice (Gemini).  Some of those people have been ‘asleep’ for a long time.  Breaking with tradition and psychological habit is scary.  So change itself, though a relief for some, is part of what can stall the very things it is looking toward.  Encouragement and less poverty, the ability to provide for themselves, create a security base that allow the luxury of a more positive choice.  One of the maxims of natural cycles is it is always darkest before the Light.  Now is the time to stay steady – get us through and beyond the chrysalis of this stage.  Though a chrysalis is a hardened shell, to protect the pupa of the butterfly, it is often seen twitching with life when touched….

This Venus Transit comes before the Dec 21, Winter Solstice, 2012 Mayan calendar end/turnover, giving us LOVE first to cap the final achievements.  We finish the final days before the Calendar ends with more GRACE.  This sets the foundation for a sweeter start of the next cycle, the BLESSINGS to come in the new times!

Let love light the dark way, return to the Light, see the Light.  Merge with, emerge from, the Heart of Light, it’s a free ride!  Reverence to all Beings.  Namaste.  Or as the Mayans say, “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself [Gemini, the Twins]. 

Gemini, Sign of the Hands, the Honored Sign of Transference of the Venus Transit June 5, 2012

Please do see more, about the Jupiter Gemini Connection to the eclipse in the months that follow!
