LEO 2019-20 Celestial HighLights

Golden LEO, the Sign of Hearts!

Aquarius is considered the sign of being electrified, but it is its opposite Leo that has the electric hair – some blowout style or an outrageous color! Just as big as the ruff on a Lion, king of the savanna! Often Leos are dignified royalty wearing the crowns! Gold is their color, whether it is that fine ring or the color of the summer savanna. In the northern hemisphere it is the time of Lammas, first harvests, the golden grains for breads. Lammas is usually between 1 August and 1 September.

Leo, the Sign of Hearts, have big warm loving hearts! They fill the space when they walk in a room and take over. They light up our lives and are the life of the party, the Sunflowers of the garden!

High Fashion and elegance goes with the territory. And only the best will do. Luxury suites, the big flashy rings. They can appear to be snooty, with their nose up in the air (literally). They are surveying the possibilities, carrying themselves proudly, yet they can be the most entertaining instructors! They read their audience well, know when they have struck a chord and capitalize on it! They can lead a merry band right on through that math class or out of the disaster area to safety! Heroes!

If Leos seem full of themselves, a bit pompous, they are! They are supposed to BE themselves, come out into the world, be away from their parents and find their own place in the Sun, make their own special contribution. It’s a teenage time in Spirit when young people have their first love. Hopelessly romantic they are dramatically heartbroken when they love and lose. When they Love, they Love! If your friend is a Leo, out to dinner and chocolates will help.

Laying on the savanna is one thing, but Leo Lions are fearless, protect their cubs, and hunt prey twice their size and more! Leos can party down, but know if things get serious you better hope they are on your side! They are super graceful natural athletes, are determined, have prowess you can bet on!

Bring my luggage, get my shades, guard my jewels, make an appt with the hair stylist! Order my new lipstick, bring all my makeup. Send the invitations, I’ll meet you at the Palace. Get tickets for the concert, the races, the awards banquet, the Olympics! No matter where a Leo is, they are the King or Queen of something! They are admired leaders, creative beyond words, delighted to love and be loved. They are enthusiastic, give encouragement just by being! They stand tall in Spirit.

Ruled by our fiery Sun, a Star, our strongest ‘planet,’ who would expect anything less of them?!

LEO 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Astronomy Perseids 2019 August 11-13

The composite image above is by John Ashley at Glacier National Park in Montana, in 2016. It perfectly captures the feeling of standing outside as dawn is approaching, after a peak night of Perseid meteor-watching. As viewed from anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, the Perseids’ radiant point is highest at dawn, and so the meteors rain down from overhead. View the full image here.

Get UP Early to See the Perseids!

The mornings leading up to August 13, 2019 should be decent for meteor-watching, providing you can find a way to work around the pesky moon. The moon is brighter in the sky on each of those mornings, and the dark window between moonset and dawn steadily shrinks as the peak morning – August 13 – approaches. We recommend watching across several mornings, before the peak, this year. Find moonset times for your location here.

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky!

Leo Romantic Sunrise Wedding Noosa Beach Australia

Leo sunrise glory, romantic wedding at Noosa Beach, Australia. ‘The sea was calm and beautiful, the breaking light was just awe-inspiring.’
Congratulations to the happy couple!

June 16 and 18 Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune were together again, closely and retrograde this time. The first set was at 14 degrees. They were at 18 degrees. First Jupiter, immediately followed, by, with, Saturn. Jupiter challenging us to expand our vision in the square – yes and no. Saturn said I see the part of this that has value, how can we make that happen? Now they are laying back until fall, but are continuously close in degrees. Jupiter finishes Sep 21, Saturn Nov 8. After the Sep aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees!  So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors at 16 degrees you will be connected to all three sets!

Nov 8 concludes the six aspects with Neptune, all happening while Jupiter is in its own sign Sagittarius! At that time it will be exactly a year ago, Nov 8, 2018, that Jupiter went into his own sign Sagittarius. These aspects with Neptune, the Dreamer, have opened our senses, making us aware of new dreams and beliefs. Times have changed!
Pisces
We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter then Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn conjunct Pluto prepped with demolition, Jupiter with Pluto will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the retrograde Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven, Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions are taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Leo will be rather happy with the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn. Jupiter is a fire planet and both Leo and Jupiter like to play, sport & gamble! Leo likes a good taut Capricorn, is proud of his superlative accomplishments! With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown! 

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the on average 34 year exact conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with activator Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it

There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean.

April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. Whatever demons or glory, tragedies or triumphs formidable Saturn with Pluto shall have faced, Jupiter will optimistically pick up the pieces, repurpose. Pluto will see the promise of profit financially and spiritually. It will be an explosion of clearing for future works, secrets discovered, major funding attained, ‘keepsakes’ will be in the plans to be built ~ like a mini renaissance, yet more secrets will be made too. Bad will be healed, the rest is hallelujah! LOTS of big news! Super power plays will abound as the Nov 3 Presidential Election approaches.

April 4 and June 29 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto the first and second times. From the second week in March through July, most potently April 4 through June 29, Jupiter closely conjuncts Pluto the entire time! The opposite prediction polarity, compared to the paragraph above, is it can be mass tragedy, even evil personified. More powerful secrets made, concealment and lies to cover. Be ready to help, protect yourself and others until this period passes. Seriously start making alliances with capable and trusted family, friends and associates now. Keep your emergency kit and supplies up to date for on-the-ground environmental conditions likely in your area, have a plan in mind. The aspects will hold be potent at 21 to 26 Capricorn. If you have factors at or very close to those degrees you may be called into action. Challenges for Aries, Libra and Cancer, Gemini and Leo. More easy for Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces.

The third and final Jupiter conjunct Pluto is Nov 12, at 22 Capricorn, the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto! This aspect is the last major aspect link of the whole set that started Oct 30, 2018! It carries the experience of the previous two Jupiter/Pluto aspects, is the upcoming aspect when the Presidential Elections are held Nov 3 2020. Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs up to Dec 2, 2019! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change you request makes sense. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose. Saturn is a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable.

Two outer planets change sign during LEO’s coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius enters Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn enters Aquarius Mar 21, 2020, retrogrades back into Capricorn for a review July 1. Jupiter’s sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to new, additional goals. Saturn, quite at home in his own sign, suddenly finds himself in a sign quite unlike himself. Yet, Aquarius carries on the good work for all the world! Capricorn guiding will make it all the more potent. While Capricorn loves the status and money, be guided by keeping your work in service to all. With earth changes, we will find ourselves working with many others in diverse environments under unusual conditions. Aquarius will expand your business, mission, if you let the change work for you. Blessed be.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background until 2021… In LEO’s coming year they are exact only once in their new signs Aries/Taurus at Valentine’s time, Feb 15! See more about Chiron/Uranus

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.

Outer Planet Transits with LEO 2019 – July 2020!

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Leo Life is full of new beginnings!

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus orbits at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years. They are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto is moving from 20 to 25 Capricorn during LEO’s year to come. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 23 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

LEO may blush, marry or do business with Pluto in Cap. Leo may be hypnotized, honored, like to spend Pluto’s money, enjoy valuable gifts, or join corporate forces! Leo might be the front man to Pluto who wields the finances behind the scenes and Capricorn building whatever it takes to get the job done. Leo may lend his creative brilliance and name, while Pluto in Capricorn harnesses that power. Leo could feel curbed and lose his spirit, or be held in high esteem, in great appreciation for his contribution, handsomely paid. Choose wisely and give things an appropriate trial period. See a lawyer specific to that business, get it in writing – especially if you lack experience in that field. Get second and third opinions from people who won’t prosper from what you ask about. Check out pros and cons. Pluto may give some assessments that hurt LEO’s feelings and/or make him rethink some important premises of his life. Number 1 as therapists, Pluto’s highest intention is to heal what we hide from ourselves, clean out the old debris that blocks our Path. Medicine can taste pretty bad but be the perfect antidote.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last sign of the zodiac, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune and Leo are both performers, actors. Leo understands personas and can step into one with uncanny accuracy. Neptune can immerse in the feelings, flow with the story line. Neptune brings Leo more of a vision than Leo has for himself, even when Leo’s own vision is grand. Neptune adds a subtlety that makes a difference, is more in alignment with true Spirit, even Leo’s own personal Spirit. Leo is so self aware he can feel that even more. Neptune uses rhythm, music that calls us; Leo uses music that moves not just Spirit, but our bodies. Neptune has made a good investment, someone to carry on the work! Neptune drifts in muted magical forms that inspire Leo to use the bright lights to help us see and magnify that alchemy! Leo may be confused at times, not ‘reading’ the script, but one thing leads to another and he spontaneously takes up the thread and creates his own! Fire signs rarely have trouble quickly ad libbing to meet the occasion!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 10 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. A lot of earth changes we are witnessing are massive, coming suddenly, hot and heavy. The very land is changing, affecting food supplies, water sources and location choices about where to live. There is a lot of instability financially. We need to have backup funds, supplies, stay flexible. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

Taurus invents simple. To freedom lover Uranus, being in Taurus may feel too slow, too close for comfort, so unexciting. Taurus may freak out, and they rarely do, at the sudden upsets to his routines. Or Uranus being in his sign may be the most fun he’s had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Uranus himself is shocked to find walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! It’s a whole new dimension compared to that desk chair in the still dead-air plastics scented office! Taurus may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Supercharged divine body electric!

Leo is intrigued beyond words! It’s kinda funny seeing Taurus, THE Earth sign, dealing with that crazy unpredictable Aquarian type. Both have their own particular type of savvy, but one is faster than the speed o Light, the other is so slow you may miss the event! So Leo takes in the genius of both. Leo is inspired by the lightning encounter with Uranus, yet wonders if he will withstand or measure up to the Uranian storm. It’s a humbling experience, and he’s not in charge like he’s used to! If he can’t keep up, ye Gods how embarrassing, Taurus will be catching up from behind, offering a steady shoulder and they will walk together. Now that’s different. Taurus is so patient, kindly, and Leo has so often only thought of himself. Puts a new dimension on things. If Leo was stuck somewhere, between the thunder maker and the earth mover, it won’t be for long. Astrologically speaking, Leo and Uranus’ sign Aquarius are opposite. Taurus sits between them. So though a Taurus/Leo square, it is also symbolically like a fixed sign T Square with Taurus as the gateway. Leo lying on the savanna can understand Taurus standing for hours in the fields, observing, digesting. Rather than being the Hunter with the pride, always needing to look good, Leo can take on more qualities of being in one’s own skin, taking the time it takes.

CHIRON will be in Aries through 2027. In Leo’s year, he will cover 1 to 9 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021, 13 years. Chiron has become more future minded and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more In Aries, is the first of the zodiacal signs, Chiron is becoming a more fiery shaman, takes unprecedented healing action! Uranus’s sign change into Taurus is, grounding the thunder maker. There is a shift in the foundation, now starting to hold steady.

If you have Chiron in these degrees, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the head, brain and eyes. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! In Aries, may start his own business and, loving independence, may be reluctant to marry…

Chiron in Aries may come in good will; Leo is excited to collaborate with this newcomer! Chiron is feeling his oats. Due to his mythical unhealable injuries, he has often held the back seat, and it’s his turn now to stand up! Chiron is trying on some new healing ingredients and techniques. Leo is always looking to be a better person, have more strength, enjoy is prowess, so hopes they work well. Leo doesn’t always make business changes so fast, but pay attention to the new business skills offered. Chiron has more than one skill! Your income could improve. Chiron is quick in Aries, a great consultant, but he’s on his schedule, not ours, so get the info right away. He will soon be gone, but try things out for yourself. The best he offered does work. While he’s here, Chiron can do a successful startup so quickly you can hardly believe it! If he remains in leadership, it may be just challenging enough for him to opt to stay, opening branches, a franchise – always something new! Don’t be surprised if he opens further and different types of businesses as time goes on! You may miss him not being about. Be cautious of marriage offers. Leo loves romance, but if you are looking for long term, Chiron may not be the one while in Aries. Aries may promise, but not be able to do it.

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

Saturn is working the last half of his own sign Capricorn! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! The experience you have depends on how Saturn is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Those of you with Saturn 13 – 29 Capricorn have your Saturn Returns now through Mar 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! They say what they think. There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. or just being quietly alone is peaceful. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elder hood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in his own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids!

Leo wants to measure up to Capricorn expectations. They see the value and respect of being on time. Capricorn helps them face their demons, develop more realistic skill, think more long term, be aware of consequences of omissions or missing the boat. Caps help Leos, who think they can do anything, realize there really are 24 hours in a day and there are certain others who are better than they are at certain things. Leos don’t have to work so hard after all, LOL! Delegate is a lovely word. Capricorns may be surprised how much a Leo can adore them, be proud of them. They both have a tad of arrogance at times. Cap expects obedience; Leos are certain they should be waited on. Cap gets busted once in a while and Leo has a tantrum from time to time. Leo learns he has to be himself no matter what the authority wants. Sometimes authority is just wrong. Other times Leo needs to be doing good things with people who want the same things. Fire signs don’t adapt so easily. Yet Saturn’s Capricorn and Leo are a common combination! They are so proud of each other. Capricorn admires Leos verve and commanding presence, being the star of the show! Leos admire their Capricorn’s outstanding achievements, being the boss! They can get a lot done together.

Returns March 20 to July 1, 2020 are at 0 and 1 Aquarius! Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all-encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now, for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time while they do. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit and union. Many amazing like minded friendships may come, or if you are overwhelmed or need time to recenter, you may take time away and enjoy being on your own. If you are in business or want to spread the word about a project, your networking can go worldwide through social media! Concentrate on humanitarian and sustainability facets of your ventures and investments.

Leo is delighted with the unfolding drama! He can be one of the many, or THE one of many, a leader. His teachings will carry the news and many will be onboard! His heart is in this goodness to come for all Beings. He is literally a Light for his team. Aquarius, having the great overview, will waste no time getting the word out, cleverly incorporating Leo’s work in the most right places. Leo may be hard pressed to keep up once started! There is so much more than he anticipated and he is being called to the highest levels. Friendships will take on a new tone, the frequency unfamiliar, but instinct knows it is the way to go. Aquarius is the Awakener, and Leo will be surprised to find he, the sign of Light, is awakening too! Aquarius is Evolution and Leo is on the surf, astounded by new visions and the speed at which they are happening! Take good care of yourself. If you are going to be a good spiritual soldier, act like you are preparing for a winning race! Relationships will surely shift as context changes around us. We will no longer accept lacks we tolerated for so long. We are out growing our old ways. We will more gladly wait for a more fulfilling combination at our new vantage point. Aquarius is wild genius, but Saturn is a born manager and will manage it well. Once you have experienced this level of consciousness there is no going back.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

Jupiter stays in Sag, his own sign, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fail to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sag and Leo have a ball! That could be the biggest soirée you ever saw with a King and Queen, or a party in the woods with the High Priest and Priestess! You could have a concert with more sound and impressive lighting than ever before. That could be a splentacular fundraiser. Jupiter may carry you off on the trip of your lifetime, far and wide, up and under, to the Oracle, the fountain of youth! Leo learns how to make life bigger, and that’s fine with him! Jupiter invites Leo to think about the meaning of life rather than dwell in himself as much. The perspective shifts. He reminds Leo how important Leo’s part is in the big score of Life’s movie. Even when to his favor, Leo is sensitive to what could seem like criticism, so when Jupiter, not famous for discretion, may bluntly dump the ideas at Leo’s doorstep for Leo to stumble and rumble over, Leo may smoke a bit. Ultimately though, Leo is no quitter, and is a smart cookie, wants to be best. There may be a bit of harrumphs, snorting and carrying on, but Leo will think on it, take it in, and do what he can do! Jupiter in Sagittarius is a rambler and likely to move on. He may take Leo with him, or Leo, a fixed sign, may remain in his own kingdom waiting for the next visitor.

Jupiter in Capricorn  Jupiter fairly streaks through Capricorn, getting to the 27th degree, almost completely through Cap, by May 20, 2020! At that point it retrogrades and continues in Capricorn until Dec 2020. It makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories spread the news. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits and carefully make small trial investments in great sounding whims. Check things out. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, which Leo may find entertaining until they apply to him! Leo is used to being King and Queen. Jupiter can be self righteous, but that is mere foolery to Leo. Leo rules! I don’t care how big your cloak is! However, Leo doesn’t get away with all. The law is the law, and Jupiter is often the Judge. Woops. If they are all on the same side it could be good. If not, Leo may get his wings clipped, be put in his place. If the Judge is good looking, and smart and funny, is known for his fair perspective, Leo may not mind at all, and to everyone’s surprise, it could be the start of a fine relationship! Jupiter in Capricorn can be doggone successful in business, be a consummate professional and show Leo how to rise up in the world at large! So what if you are the King/Queen! Get up and get a bigger territory. If you do it right, your constituents will be well pleased too! The business could be major events – promotions, universities, competitions, non profits for betterment, involve seniors and health and well being. Leos may be quite proud of their association and hold the Light quite steady! Congratulations!

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have depends on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, LEOS! Blessed be on your glorious Journey!


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….

New Moon! 

Three in Taurus, three in Aries Bowl, Sextiles, Neptune Midpoint, Stars! 

Wesak Seasonal Blue Flower Full Moon!

Buddha’s Birthday! Taurus Stellium, Pairs, Jupiter/Saturn-Neptune!

Taurus New Moon!

Saturday May 4 at 3:46 PM Pacific, 14 Taurus 11!

Three in Taurus, three in Aries Bowl, Sextiles, Neptune Midpoint, Stars! 

Taurus 2019 New Moon Milky Way Green AirGlow Isle of Wright Chad Powers

The Milky Way and green airglow are captured over the Isle of Wight in this image taken by Chad Powell on Oct. 4, 2013.   

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. 

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone! In Taurus, we assess our body, our attractiveness, what we want, our basic human rights, our relationship with our planet, ownership of our actions to get the job done. 

Bowl chart with three in Taurus, three in Aries! 

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini, but now it is opposite Jupiter, firing up Jupiter’s synapses with startling and exciting new information. Those old opinions are being challenged and updated! Jupiter may feel a bit taunted, but loves learning, and usually gives in to the bigger truth of things. Our last New Moon the emphasis was Pisces/Aries. This one has three planets in Aries and three in Taurus! The beginnings have been made and Taurus intends to anchor, stabilize production, refine the process. Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Keep them right where you can touch them, close to your heart. Spread the good word.

Sextiles of Opportunity in mixed companionable elements! See all those green lines?!

In fire and air, Venus to Mars! Love at first sight! They are chatting while they dance, the moves are quick and graceful. Champions! They both may try to lead, LOL! Venus gives her blessings in an instant. She is leading the frame, choosing in a moment. Though she gave you the eye, don’t mistake that she is independent, creative and resourceful. She makes beauty wherever she goes; it’s like having a magic wand! Mars can match her steps and that is rare, so delightful that he can keep up, even surpass her! He has words; he hums while he moves. His rhythm is impeccable; his breath is with the wind. Venus is the budding flower in brilliant white or red, a rose of pink. In the world of the day, they have fond connections, connections with artists and movers, world leaders of all kinds. They share all the stories, perform with spiritual zest! They scintillate! There is a sweet scent as they pass by. New beginnings are blessed.

Mars does have a serious component in his periphery. Perhaps that makes him more formidable than one thinks at first glance. He is linked with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. That makes Gemini look pale, but he presents Gemini first. If he finds out there is deception, a web of imprisonment, an unhonorable chronic history, he will move on. He notes the susceptibility of curiosity, but he knows if he gets caught he might not get away in time. Careful. He learns to be a bit more cautious and be careful where he flirts. Due to a wrinkle in energy, he may almost inadvertently become aware of a wise being who may tell him of certain requirements he must experience to temper his Soul. It’s a test not everyone opts to take or passes even if they do. Do your best.

In Earth and Water, Neptune at the sextile midpoint between Saturn and the New Moon!
  • Saturn sextile Neptune is special, part of the big planetary combination that started with Pluto at the Ecliptic, 18° Capricorn, Oct 20, 2018! Jupiter and Saturn both will make exact aspects with Neptune June 16 and 18 at 18° Pisces. 18 Pisces sextiles that 18 Capricorn! Jupiter updates Neptune’s dreams of the millennium, teaches new methods of advocacy. A bigger Truth now prevails. Evolution’s work is ever in the making. Saturn builds an easy to follow, well defined Pathway of substance, makes sure the gears are running smoothly. Saturn pays attention to the structural integrity of the dream’s current condition and strengthens as needed. There may be some delays, but the delays will make for long term substantial gain.

  • Moon and Sun are potently trining Saturn as well as also making the sextile to Neptune! Moon and Saturn know each other well. Each is preserving elemental integrity, building a strong home base, taking care of elders, the kids and generations to come. Both are relatively conservative, as they should be considering their jobs, but they always help when they can. Sun and Saturn get along well. Sun praises, gives energy, and lights the way when Saturn faces his toughest challenges. Saturn has his doubtful moments, but rarely abandons his Soul’s commitments. 

    You might think by closeness this would also lead to Pluto since Saturn is so close to Pluto, but not so much. Sextiles are not given so much leeway by most astrologers as that long 11° between Moon/Sun and Pluto, and Saturn is retrograding away from Pluto faster than Pluto is retrograde. Yes, their conjunction is in the offing, they have been within sniffing distance, taking measure of what’s to come, giving fair warning of the necessities that will follow. It will be Saturn’s job to bring the dangerous Pluto extremist into a more workable current collaboration in a timely fashion. Yet sometimes it takes holding the extreme condition to get people to see exactly what the time frame is, like with climate conditions. The old guard money machines aren’t going to hold all that melting water. Time to find new ways to capitalize for the futures of our children. Private parties and businesses are stepping in, taking care of reality. And they are the ones who have funded government in the past. Now they are doing the business of the planet. That’s bigger.

    Moon and Neptune are both so intuitive. Mama Moon sees Neptune’s deepest wishes. She sees the cycles they are flowing in, variations that are coming. Neptune sees not just Moon’s own family, but the family of humanity. He sees her cycles within the grand cycles. He tunes her up and she believes what he shows her. She knows her daily work is symbolic of the macrocosm. She cleans, hugs the hurts, feeds, supports and sometimes leads as a woman of substance in behalf of her people. Keeping her people strong is essential. She helps people feel their way along, understand each other’s differences. As she changes, so will they. 

    Sun heartens Neptune to stand up rightfully in his unique insights. Take that song with those lyrics to center stage. Music has always been a way of speaking. As we listen, dance to it, we take it in. We become it without realizing. There is a complicit agreement, resonance. We can be profoundly influenced. As we might be doing yoga at the beach, or sitting in meditation with other Souls of great intention. The Sun makes us aware of our own radiance and the seed of the dream we have held within starts to grow…
Three Semi-Sextiles!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Taurus’ coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, 2020!  See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius is semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn! Jupiter is UP and Pluto and Capricorn are considered to be down dirty and sensible, realistic! If you take it all too seriously, get burdened with obsessive commitments you can’t humanly keep, get tired beyond measure, then runaway with Jupiter! Jupiter does have big plans, but there are often detours, trips, fun, funny! It’s not what you do but how you do it! Plenty of time outs, diversions so you don’t lose it, being silly and ridiculous just for the heck of it, stretching your muscles and spirit! Go Surfing in New Zealand, get in an outdoor run, some yoga, sign up for the samba class you always wanted, get some private tutoring! Make noise, yodel! See what I mean, Jellybean?! Now. If Jupiter is just not getting things done, on time or ever, it might be time to be reminded of the consequences of going too far that direction! Divvy up the task into small bites; start with something just to get a start. If possible, never sign up for something you didn’t want to do in the first place. But if it is a chance as a step to something more better, give yourself a time limit and give it a go! Either way, Jupiter or Pluto, take good care of yourself. 

For this New Moon, Venus is leading old Neptune on! She has whispered with him before when they are in Pisces together, but now she is calling to him to catch up! She’s pretty, perky, agile, dodges bullets, starts fires, is spirited in the most attractive way! He can’t help but long to put some of his visions in her hands and wish to be close with her again. She’s pushing for change, now, and he may be embarrassed once in a while at her shenanigans, but even if she makes a mistake, she has record recovery time! Progress! She still comes by to listen to him, seek his guidance and inspire her with new ideas. He may not look to exciting, but don’t underestimate his tempests! Formidable if he is displeased. Be ready to roll!

Venus is also at a T Square midpoint to Saturn and the Moon’s Nodes! They are in Cardinal signs: Saturn in practical earthy Capricorn, Venus in fire breathing Aries, the Nodes spanning Cancer/Capricorn – Saturn at the South Node. There is a Fateful component. Saturn, Capricorn and the South Node, are related to our past. The family reputation, karmic consequences good or bad, old age, archaeology, meaningful past lives. Cardinal signs are always getting things rolling. Cancer takes care of the home and family, Capricorn builds both shelter, and community connections, and knows what’s done is done, let go, rebuild. Aries is the first responder, leader of merit, gets the troops inspired with new ideas! This leader could be a woman, perhaps may lack credibility, but she certainly gives it a go. She may prove to be right or with excellent input, makes quick adjustments and it comes out better than anyone expected! Her auspicious sextile with Aries planet Mars in Gemini assures everyone will hear about the project, sending her information she needs minute by minute, further leading her to make thrilling daring moves! What a dance! 

There was another T Square, Jupiter and Mars to Neptune, but it has fizzled since Jupiter and Mars have gone beyond Neptune’s degree now. Yet, Neptune remains felt as the midpoint of the entire chart! What has potency now, however, is Mars opposite Jupiter! Fireworks! Mars is a fire sign, Jupiter a fire planet in his own sign, fiery Sagittarius! Mars in airy Gemini might spread himself a little thin, living on air instead of food, but he’s having a great time of it as Jupiter feeds him data from all other the world. Pushy Mars may want to act before Jupiter thinks things are ready. They may go head to head, differences of opinion, Mars willing to take on the giants, Jupiter outspoken and not known for tact all the time. But fire and air are quick and smart, get through it just about as fast as it started! Mars likes being independent, and might be frustrated when Jupiter takes off one of the few times Mars needs support. Jupiter may find Mars isn’t as impressed with his grand ideas as his students are. For Mars he’s used to taking on big ideas because he has plenty of his own. Jupiter may underestimate Mars. But Mars is 10 times faster than anyone else, so Jupiter sees such amazing progress he’s challenged to keep up with Mars! All’s forgiven.

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This earthy 14° Taurus New Moon makes a blessed sextile with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Taurus and Cancer make sure everyone is comfy and fed well. Taurus steadies Cancer. Cancer listens and doesn’t rush Taurus. She knows when to get back to her business and let him think some more.

Moon and Sun are trine Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn.  Moon is born to music and Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. They make ballads and lullabies. Taurus has a lovely voice that soothes humans and animals alike. Taurus love being hands on, makes stunning ceramics, sculptings. They sculpt their own bodies with weight training or weight loss programs. This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.  

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! Venus in Aries has just sextiled Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for her. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and Venus, Robson says: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female. About Mars (Aries), he says ‘Unruly, ingenious occupied with mechanical matters, great military preferment. Any old time, Venus in Aries can throw a temper tantrum, sweetly, mind you, and get away with it! With Rigel she just might have a little more teeth. You might call her on it or decide to wait a bit…

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

At this New Moon Venus tickles the web from 17 Aries! She is square the Pluto/Ecliptic point, semi-sextile the mid-June Neptune point, and inconjunct the Transit of Mercury! She is requesting an updating of intention, no time to lose. Yes, it will be more work, inconvenient, but it almost seems like they have been waiting for this missing piece. She shows Neptune a new shiny speed boat and he’s delighted! Sitting side by side, they imagine going on a merry ride beyond her wildest ideas! He doesn’t want to let her down, so she brings out his best! Venus quickens the Scorpio brew where the Transit of Mercury will occur. Aries and Scorpios are warriors from way back. Aries fire warms the temps, gets any sludge at the bottom moving and be released. Aries primes the pump.

Pluto is now at 23 Capricorn, just a degree from where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter sits at 23 Sagittarius now, one sign before, readying our plans and preparations. Jupiter keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Any learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Steady as she goes. We have a lot to do.

Wesak Seasonal Blue Flower Full Moon! 

Saturday May 18 at 2:11 PM Pacific, 27 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Buddha’s Birthday! Taurus Stellium, Pairs, Jupiter/Saturn-Neptune! 

Taurus Scorpio 2019 Wesak Buddha Seasonal Blue Full Flower Moon

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. In Pacific time, the United Nations will celebrate it Saturday May 18 in 2019. 

The Full BLUE Moon, is the only 2019 Seasonal Blue Moon. Since this is the third of four full moons in this season, it is known as a blue moon. This calendar event only happens once every few years, giving rise to the term, “once in a blue moon.” There are normally only three full moons in each season of the year. But since full moons occur every 29.53 days, occasionally a season will contain 4 full moons. The extra full moon of the season is known as a blue moon. Blue moons occur on average once every 2.7 years.

Three outer planets are potently in their own signs! Purity prevails. Jupiter is frolicking in Sagittarius. Saturn is steadfast in Capricorn. Neptune is apperceptive in Pisces. Venus is in one of her own signs, our sign Taurus! She breathes Nature’s beauty, is aware of natural cycles. 

Stellium! May 15 to 21 we have four planets in Taurus, Uranus, Venus in one of her own signs, Mercury and Sun – four ways to interact, four tools to apply! Uranus will bring unusual bonds of friendship, some due to weather, food needs, animal protection, sustainable shelter. Elemental. Venus will go before him showing why these matters are worth it with data and images showing valuable alternative new living systems. Wise. Mercury is out there steadily spreading the word, developing sensible answers, updating info as he goes, finding collaborators. It’s challenging and rewarding. Sun is throwing Light energy, encouraging us to stand up, each in our own special way, from our own heart. Love.  

Full Moon of Scorpio during Taurus! While Moon is checking on hidden resources, Sun is steady in Taurus, observing her progress, holding the fort. Moon may need to make a quick retreat, or the prize is too much to get away with on her own and she may need some security forces to be dispatched ASAP! She may be caught in a formidable seduction, a lot of money involved, and Sun may need to shed some Light on the affair to reveal the entirety of it all! She could be stolen away, or they could become wealthy by combining forces. Sun in Taurus protects what’s his/ours. Moon can be conservative because she is always somewhat vulnerable as mother/child. Might be the best thing that ever happened, or she may know exactly why she never ever did and will not do!

Three Planetary Pairs, two of those in Taurus! That means conjunctions of dual powers! Potency and focus!

  1. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have been 3° or less of each other since April 6. April 29 Saturn retrograded, still close, gaining momentum in reverse, out of the 3° range May 28. Saturn has made the approach, but they don’t connect exactly until Jan 12, 2020! The preview has made Saturn aware of what needs to be done and is giving 8 months to be prepared, get it done! It can be personal matters, teeth, skin, bones. It can be business, real estate, elders, parenting. It can be world matters, laws, borders, tariffs, protection of civil liberties. The process can be from destruction of what no longer works, reusing what does – remodeling, building from the ground up. It can be infamy, shame, or honored achievement. Your chart will be particularly called on if you have factors from 17 to 23 degrees. Capricorn rules the high mountains, hard rock solidarity, survival in sometimes harsh conditions. Band together and stay safe.

  2. Venus has just crossed Uranus in Taurus. She makes what’s unique about Uranus into something outstandingly valuable! Taurus is the most fertile land, and if you are growing food, climate and weather conditions have your complete attention. Venus is beauty, loving kindness, and Uranus is friends and everything electronic – the internet, your phone. It’s a blessed time to make connections and gather your tribe. Uranus is the planet of Evolution. Together we get those bigger ventures done! Sponsor special health research, invest in future sources of energy in behalf of climate change because the standard package is no longer serving. Help people make their changes enjoyably, help them to overcome shock, fear. Venus can help Uranus set people free and get stabilized in their new way of life! Let go of sugars, carbs, alcohol. Maybe do a Keto diet?!

  3. Mercury is talking with Sun In Taurus. They are savoring their favorite words, comparing thoughts of value, common determinations. Mercury has news and Sun is contemplating its potential, what their part in it might be. They are deciding the best ways to fertilize the fields of opportunity becoming available, how to anchor their progress for sustainable future gains. They go slowly and carefully, their considerations are provocative.  

Mercury and Sun have favorably trined the Saturn/Pluto conjunction, Mercury most recently, keeping the information flowing. Mercury is transmitting to Sun Taurus to Taurus, but their exact connection, May 21 at 6:07 AM, is after they both change signs into Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! At that point, the nature of the message changes. It retains the original content, but the added question becomes how to get the word out to the maximum number of people that it may continue to be transmitted! Moon caught the gist of the message, is a fast mover, in this case the front person! She carries the message on in a rather Scorpio underground manner, telling it to people who will carry it potently to key places, paving the way for it to be well funded and implemented successfully later.  

Mercury also inconjuncted Jupiter in Sagittarius. Mercury is of Gemini and Virgo, knowledge and putting it to work. Jupiter of Sagittarius is opposite Gemini, square Virgo. He takes the data Gemini gathers, Virgo categorizes, and puts it collectively into perspective, gives it meaning and long term purpose. So what Mercury passes to Sun is ready to go. The Plan is in progress. 

Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde on their way back to square and sextile Neptune June 16 & 18. These aspects are especially important because they happen while Neptune is at 18 Pisces, sextile the Pluto/Ecliptic point of Oct 30 2018 at 18 Capricorn! The whole sequence started Oct 30, 2018 with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Jupiter/Saturn pair are preparing us for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! All of these will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Jupiter will be seeking greater meaning now that we have had some months of experience. Jupiter and Neptune have to do with Faith and Spirituality. Faith often has a name, a congregation. Spirituality is more your personal relationship with your beliefs, being a Savior of Humanity. It might be sitting in meditation, doing good works for suffering Souls, no name needed. Many are thinking of the huge donations being given to restore Notre Dame while cities don’t have drinking water, animals are going extinct, children are suffering. One woman wrote ‘What would Jesus do?’ Jupiter’s Truth is challenging Neptune’s blind side.

Saturn’s job is to take the best most workable ideas of the Jupiter square Neptune and parlay them into use. These three will aspect each other, two more exact times June 16/18 and Sep 21/Nov 8. Saturn is practical and offers Neptune a reasonable rebuild. Saturn cuts the time, builds strong and doesn’t waste time. Old things, stones and glass are his medium. He may take a more middle of the road stance due to public opinion. The ones donating may come to question why they haven’t given before to matters of living beings. We have these magnificent heritage buildings and we have animals going extinct on the same day. One is reparable, the other is not. Please give the majority of your energy to the long term.

Moon’s Nodes recently spanned across Saturn, the South Node at Saturn! They have to do with the Past. We have been considering how things used to be, how they have been, what’s to come and what to do. Saturn wants to rebuild, make a difference, have rules that are doable. The North Node, the direction we are heading, wants food to be better quality, to eat the right kinds and amounts. Saturn can help regulate and build a better system. In addition, the Nodes are favorable, in the same degree with Neptune! Neptune is addictions of any kind, and food doesn’t cost much, is right there in your fridge. A favorable aspect can make us think we can get away with it, or Neptune can help us imagine consequences and make us realize the need to take care of ourselves better. If we aren’t talking about addictions, we can see how women, families are so important in our world today when there is so much change at hand. We all need the nurturing. We are inspired to make a safe and better world for our loved ones. We need to treat ourselves better that we may be able to help them well. Young heroines like 15 year old activist Greta Thunberg speaks truth to power at the UN COP24 climate talks. She speaks of her needs as a planetary citizen who lives on after us…

The early degree planets are getting us started! Mars just entered Cancer on the 15th, is quite fearless as usual, is activating Uranus. Mars may be slightly intimidated by his own Mother, but no one else and not for long! God knows Mothers have special powers. GrandMothers too. But if Mars takes on the Mother role, have mercy on us all! Mars will do what he wants to do in the name of taking care of you. He knows he knows what’s best for you and it’s important to do it now! If he gets rebellious to his Mother, be sure to have your best strategies at hand, LOL, you’re gonna need ’em! Uranus adds a further touch of rebellion, wanting freedom and change! Those old fashioned Cancerian ways are about to be turned over! But, if home, family, women and children need defending and liberating, you have a champion! At the very least you are going to find new ways to have food and shelter, live a better life. No dawdling!

Mars is slower, so Venus made the sextile the 14th, in different signs.

Mars is about to square Chiron May 23. There is some compatibility since Chiron is in Aries, the Mars sign. Cancer and Aries are what we call Cardinal signs, starters, so if healing and a better life is offered, they can get a lot done together. There will probably need to be an acceptance that each has a different way of doing things. Aries is gonna be quick. Cancer might want to wait and doesn’t give up the old ways so easily. But somebody has to break through. Even if a few mistakes are made, hopefully they are not only reparable, but new discoveries are made through the process that are even better than the original proposal! Go get ’em and good luck!

Hold Beauty true, give Blessings, steady onward with Peace in your Heart.

Aquarius 2019 Celestial HighLights

Aquarius ~ Heavenly!

Aquarius Heavenly 2019 And a softness came from the starlight ~ Yeats

And a softness came from the starlight and filled me to the bone.
~ W.B. Yeats ~

What a wonderful way of speaking of the joy of the Night. Yeats had a Grand Air Trine: Moon in Aquarius trine Sun & Uranus (the planet of Aquarius) in Gemini, trine Saturn (bone) in Libra. Aquarius, and it’s planet Uranus rule the heavens in astrological parlance. Yeats makes this combination into divine poetry. He was an Irish poet awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature 1923. See his chart.

From argonaut to astronaut, space sailors have watched and been guided by the stars. Farmers in fields still use them to calculate the seasons, the equinoxes and solstices. In summer we camp under the stars, bathed in StarLight. So many stories are written about the adventures of star travelers, what we think it might be like…and wonder about possible inhabitants far, far away.

Ouranos, Uranus is Aquarius’s planet, the planet of the Heavens, the etheric realm. Aquarians are often thought of as absent minded, being someplace else, their attention being miles away. They are renowned for their intelligence; they think at the speed of Light. As their opposite sign is Leo, the sign of the Sun, our Star; Aquarians are the sign of the entire collective of stars! They are tapped into the galaxies. Is their intelligence of this world, in their own mind and making, or do they literally channel cosmic energy? They are considered to be ahead of their time, so intelligent few understand them. Some Aquarians are able to cross the divide, explain enough so we get it. Others are not and live alone.

You can see how a smart Aquarian can get bored and in trouble. Even trouble is easy for an Aquarian, fascinating to reverse the principles most people live by, entertaining for sure. LOVE comes when they find a cause that requires all their abilities to work it. When they are with like worldly minds, they can function at the level they are equipped for! They can do technical to the micro detail. They favor electrical, but invention of any kind tests their vast mental prowess. They enjoy problems that are on the cutting edge, unique, previously unsolved, that involve change, sometimes danger, and amazing new materials and principles. The stranger, the better!

Some are uncanny with people, great at selecting tribe members for the fantastic new voyage. The humanitarian intention is greater than the difference factor, and with many contributing, results are astonishing whether it is restoring remote desert or in the computer laboratory researching medical cures. The more people that need the changes, the more challenging the matter. That is the natural size territory for an Aquarian.

By nature, birds and their flight have intrigued Aquarians forever. We have now learned how to fly, even beyond our planet! We see hang gliders, with that panoramic view of Earth, soaring in peace. Photography drones are taking exceptional high-caliber footage, searching for people and pets who are lost in rough terrain, tracking wildfires. It’s not just stars anymore. We are becoming uplifted, living symbolically at more elevated levels. Our minds and attention are expanding. Yes, there are failures and foolishness. As we live in new ways, we have things to work out, and that will be done. We’ve got electric cars – robotic cars are already here, and sure, flying cars are next!

Take good care of your dear Aquarians. They can get so in their minds they forget they have a body. They forget to eat, don’t sleep, no Sun or fresh air. If they are bigger than you are, that’s a problem – you can’t make them, LOL! And they are probably smarter than you are. Do what you can.

The body is one thing, their mind is another! If they are kids, they are going to shred through toys within hours, a few days. What to do? Go places where there are lots of choices? Used toys could help you keep up with expenses. Go to space and Sci-Fi cons, air shows, visit airports. Make friends with air traffic controllers. Check out bird rescue groups. Get a good computer with games, rent a drone. Photography, video classes. Join the local Astronomy Club! Meet their heroes! If you are an adult, take yourself! Get out and blow the dust off! If ever they/you are going to meet a mate, these might be the best kinds of places. It takes one to know one!

You are in good company ~ Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Rosa Parks, Yoko Ono, and Toni Morrison.  Paul Newman, Marley & Mozart, Galileo & Edison, Darwin, Christian Bale! They have all made a difference to our futures.

With our modern space programs, we see through the astronauts’ eyes, even in daytime! That’s different! With modern telescopes we can go on our own to silent places, become immersed in the night. To this day we feel so close with the stars, we profoundly become one with them…as we have always been.

You’re not a creature in body. You exist as the stars exist, participating in their stillness, their immensity. – Louise Glück, excerpt from her poem Telescope, commentary by James Longenbach

Aquarius 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Jan 29 to Feb 1 2019 Moon Venus

Kelly Beatty says: Stay up long enough (or get up early enough), and you’ll see Jupiter and Venus dance with a thin crescent Moon in the predawn sky. The Moon makes a return visit at month’s end, pairing closely with Venus on January 31st. Thanks for the image at Sky & Telescope

Aquarius 2019 Timeline!

January

20   Happy Aquarius!  Lunar Eclipse Full Wolf SuperMoon
31   Saturn Sextile Neptune

February

4    New Moon
18   Happy Pisces!  Chiron into Aries
19   Full Snow SuperMoon

Aquarius Overview of Year to Come!

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! 2019’s first 10 months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! All of these will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all Rx, retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs during Aquarius! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Saturn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show and he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

During Aquarius’s year, Uranus and Chiron are making their final sign changes. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries. While he is still in Pisces, we will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Mar 6 Uranus makes his final shift into Taurus. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and balance restored. Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions are taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Sun in Aquarius, ever aware of change, notices the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. There is a more serious note, even an urgency. Education becomes a prime agenda. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in is own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown!

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the exact 34 year conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Aquarius’s coming year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus! The Jan 19 aspect is the day before the Lunar Eclipse Full Wolf SuperMoon!  See more about Chiron/Uranus

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.


Outer Planet Transits with Aquarius 2019 – Jan 2020!

Aquarius! Astronaut Anne C McClain Space Station Dec 2018 6 months mission!

NASA Astronaut Anne C. McClain was selected by NASA in 2013. The Spokane, Washington native earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical/Aeronautical Engineering from West Point. A 2002 Marshall Scholar, McClain earned a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Bath in Bath, England and a Master of Science in International Relations from the University of Bristol in Bristol, England. Lieutenant Colonel McClain McClain, a Senior Army Aviator, has more than 2,000 flight hours in 20 different aircraft. She is a rated pilot for the C-12 Huron (King Air), UH-60 Blackhawk, and UH-72 Lakota and instructor pilot for the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior. She is currently a part of the Expedition 58/59 crew that launched to the International Space Station in December 2018. 

OUTER PLANETS WITH AQUARIUS – Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

For Aquarians there is no place but out and up!

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years, are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018, now moving from 20 to 23 degrees. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival.  Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto is deep and internal, protective, compared with Aquarius floating, soaring high in the sky. Reminds me of a bird of prey combination. Pluto is America’s Eagle, Aquarius is birds and flight, seeking the highest purpose possible. Pluto in Capricorn defends the patriarchy, it’s monies. Aquarius sees the need for sustainability, benefits for humanity, and may campaign for them. If Pluto sees it that way too, Capricorn wisely recognizes inevitable change, he may fund Aquarius’s organizations. Aquarius may shock him into realization by looking him in the eye with his electric voltage full on. Or he may present the data. If they are friends, they may be at such odds they part company for a while, or Pluto listens because he trusts his friend. Be easy, take it a little at a time, non threatening. Pluto in Capricorn wants respect and wants to see how it can all work, what good will come of it. Have your projections clear and realistic. Be ready to answer more questions quickly and succinctly. It may be your only chance.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He 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 sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 14 to 18° will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune/Pisces is of the sign after Aquarius. Aquarius can see many things, but Neptune’s realm is somewhat unfathomable to AQ. AQ is logical and in some ways untouchable, but Neptune envelops him like a foggy night. You know he’s there, you are within him, but you can only see the part nearest you. You can study him, but there is a mystical dimension that is as unpredictable as Aquarius is. Neptune knows you without studying you. Aquarius, though, as an air sign, also has an invisible quality. AQ is intrigued by this other dimension, and though often atheists, it makes him wonder if there is a divine existence… The AQ words are ‘I know,’ but this one isn’t even a puzzle. The pieces keep changing shape.

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, now covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in the last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future ideas that Taurus will anchor and build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. See more about the sign change.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is automatic. In fiery Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

Uranus in Aries, and Aquarius are ChangeMakers! Aries wants it now! Aquarius couldn’t agree more. Some things have been going on far too long. Aries spikes the punch! Fresh ideas, new approaches, new people, are just what’s needed. Times have changed and even though AQ is evolutionary, sometimes we get used to the same old ways, get bored, jaded. We need changing too. Inspiration and upliftment. He wants less thinking, more action! Aries comes in for quick connections, then leaves us to adapt it to the local community or the type of organization we have. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!

March 6, 2019 Uranus enters Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Taurus’s tempo is about as slower than AQ as you can possibly get. Both are fixed signs, so an AQ sitting at the computer hours and days at a time looks pretty slow too. But that brain is sometimes faster than the computer! Taurus may stand in that meadow, letting the 4 stomachs do that digesting, but they are steadfastly taking in what’s around them, symbolically contemplating values step by step. There’s that phrase, ‘Stand still until you can really see.’ They teach AQ how to be able to be still, to let go of thoughts that keep you unmindful of the very body you inhabit. Could save your life. Scent and touch are needed to make connections with others and your and their surroundings. If you can’t connect with sacred Mother Earth, you may still make money, but lose your Soul. Taurus has another kind of intelligence, very organic, animal-like, sensual, peaceful, patient and kind. If feels the wind on its skin.

CHIRON, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, entered Aries April 17 2018! After taking a foray into Aries, he is now back in Pisces until Feb 18, 2019. He will cover 28 Pisces to almost 6 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. See more Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more Pisces and Aries are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! There will be added flavor as Uranus enters Taurus, first a shift in the foundation, then a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Pisces/Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron is just about to finish Pisces. He is the Shaman Healer, fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron, the Shaman, shakes his rattle at Aquarius, dispersing old pet ideas to the four directions. He tends Aquarian wounds of the mind, wounds that are hard to detect by Drs or therapists, ones that came with us from long ago in different times, ages. Even genius has its own kinds of weaknesses, failings, glitches. It has its own prejudices, habitual misinterpretations. Chiron calls AQ to teach its amazing discoveries, to seek relationships that support his greatest purposes, to do business for humanity, have a greater reach.

As Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron goes into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life right now! He commiserates all too well since he also carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into immediate action! Aquarius is delighted – finally! Though he never would have thought to ask for it, help has come! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. Aquarius disperses the information to the masses – through the Internet, worldwide organizations. Chiron finds new ways to inspire, encourage young leaders. Aquarius lends his research findings to back up their presentations. From time to time there are meetings of key people, who then share and bring more people to the community. It’s a spiritual tide.

SATURN builds from 13 to 23 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign! Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 23 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through January 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elderhood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in it’s own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids!

Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now when for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Capricorn can ask for time, but if it’s too much and drudge work, your AQ will vanish, physically or mentally. Supply the latest equipment, and the best. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 11 Capricorn

Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter went into Sag at 4:38 AM Pacific. The huge Camp Fire in Paradise, California started that morning, first calls at 6:33 AM. Jupiter changing signs was preceded by an eventful NINE days started by the important 248 year aspect Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! I had written ‘Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!’ The Camp Fire took the lives of 85 people. Nov 15 nearby Chico CA had an AQI, Air Quality Index, of 350 at one point.

Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sag is a great friend to Aquarius! They are both big thinkers. Jupiter is delighted by Aquarius’s amazing concepts. He does remind Aquarius that ethics and long term are important. He encourages AQ to teach wherever he goes and the both of them love all the traveler Sci-Fi, Star Trek and Space cons! Jupiter may leave the Astronomy Club to Aquarius, but anything air travel related works for him too. Some Jupitarians take phenomenal images and videos. They love perspective, both in image composition and the purpose of it. AQ has a rare style all his own and comparing their results is inspiring to each of them. Both of them love images as teaching tools, illustration of the fantastic that is often a possibility if you only think how to do it! If it’s all too much, they can just run away together, or apart, LOL!

Jupiter in Capricorn makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, and AQ was born to ignore or break them. Maybe Jupiter will succeed in making the rules fun, or at least funny, and Aquarius will comply to a point. Jupiter may call Aquarius to task. After all, why waste such a great mind?! Capricorn can only take things so far; Jupiter knows there is more. Aquarius sees what is ordinary, by the book stuff, that with additional exceptional twists will turn it into magic! Sometimes someone has to tell you what’s needed and ask you to do it. Jupiter sees the potential even if he doesn’t understand it entirely. They know it can work better, but how? That’s where Aquarians come in! They invent those surprising next steps that make it come to life! It’s a super infusion that exceeds expectations and wonderfully so!

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas where they are on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians! Thank you for every breath you take!

Full Harvest Moon!

Monday September 24 at 7:52 PM Pacific, 2 Aries/Libra 0

Early degrees emphasis, TWO T Squares, Chiron Aries back to Pisces!

Libra Aries 2018 Full Harvest Moon Sunshine Skyway Bridge Tampa Bay FL

Full Harvest Moon shining over Tampa Bay’s 4.1 miles long Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Lovely image by award-winning freelance photographer Jim Sykes. 

Bridges are symbolic of Libra’s purpose, the connections of opposites. Full Moons are the same, specific to the link between Mother Moon and Father Sun. Libra’s Fall Equinox season change 2 days ago is the same. Libra links the fall quarter of the year, and all situations involving from summer, ‘as above,’ to ‘so below’ as we go into the shorter days, longer nights of the darker deeper time of year. Sometimes only Spirit is our escort; other times we go arm in arm, equals meeting the inner workings of our beings. One way or another, we all go. It’s a collective experience we have each year. Some have initial fears of the dark. In time confidence is gained, we enjoy this mysterious dimension, become to love its qualities. In the daytime we are headed toward intense and exhilarating sports in the windblown crisp clear-your-head cooler air!

Only 12 days ago we had the Jupiter sextile Pluto, the far, far from the Sun planet of dark! Jupiter is known for seeing the bright side of things and since Pluto is known for his powerful funds, Jupiter made some lucky deals and raised generous funds for benevolent projects and causes! 2 days ago the Sun went into Libra. Not only did we change seasons, but signs as well! Less Virgo labor now, more social connections, emphasis on collaboration. What was one person’s job has now become an active team of contributors! The result is more whole, more sophisticated, much more than the original intention!These and the Full Moon are all while Chiron is trying on it’s new speed in Aries, pushing for new beginnings, testing new ways of healing, new arrangements in partnerships and doing business!

Tomorrow, Sep 25, Chiron returns to Pisces for a reminder of why we are doing these new things, why they are required next. We go back for another look at where we have failed, the consequences. We are touched with compassion for the suffering of all manner of addictions – food, drugs, to relationships, even at times our so called ‘devotion’ to a spiritual Path. We will get deeper into true spiritual bonds that hold us dear to sacred places and principles we believe in. The Full Moon opens the gates between us, each other and different dimensions. Step back that we may go more powerfully forward later. Maybe we left someone behind, need to say the farewell that wasn’t possible before, or they are ready now and we collect them. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron goes forward into Aries for the next 9 years. At that point it will be 51 years before it gets back into Pisces again. Really seek Chiron’s meaning while it is in Pisces. This is it.

LIBRA & ARIES

While the Libra Sun is shining, Mother Moon is traveling opposite in fiery Aries. She, in all her feminine glory, is standing strongly, leading the way! She feels passionate about independence, woman power, taking the steps that make a difference for our children, our family, the work we do daily because that’s life, the skills we take forward to the next level. She doesn’t hesitate if someone is in trouble or a fire needs putting out! She’s 100% intuitive, swift and to the point!

Libra Sun doesn’t hesitate to introduce himself. He might like to help you, or live the advantage of your expertise. He would like to get to know you and connect you further to the right people and places. He likes to equalize situations, understand the merits of every person involved. Sun considers all the facets at present, the possibilities. There are times when no conclusion is possible. It’s either too late or too early. Compared with Aries, he is reminded there are times you simply must take some action, you’ll never please everyone. Yet he also knows there really are times to wait it out, poised. Aries learns there are times to let it go for now. They can really help each other. We’re making very fine jewelry here. Sometimes you turn up the heat; other times you turn it down and let things gel.

TEN factors make very CLOSE ASPECTS in the Full Moon Chart!

From zero to 8 degrees! 
0 Chiron Retrograde
1 Moon, Uranus, Lilith
2 Sun, Saturn
3 Mars
4 Moon’s North Node always retrograde in general motion
5 Mercury
8 Venus

CARDINAL T Square

Moon is with Chiron kickin’ up the dust in Aries. Let’s get this healing gig on the road! People need it NOW! Moon and Chiron are semisextile Uranus in Taurus, itchy to get going, make changes, but they are blocked by the square with Father Time Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He’s asking for papers and proof, tests, rules & regs. Moon and Chiron would love to just push him aside, and might do, but there would be consequences that might make a longer delay later. Sigh. Uranus in Taurus, is close in trine with Saturn, has been gently nudging him, so a shift is soon. Saturn slows us down just enough to have the time we need to think more clearly and do it even better after all!

Sun and Mercury have been running into the Saturn bricks too! Saturn thinks of Libra as ‘fluffy,’ not serious enough to be considered. Yet, Libra has Saturn’s eye, since those goods sell better when they are Libra finessed and attractive too, bringing more sales. Saturn is the T point man, so they all have to get his approval before it’s a go. Once they do, Mercury is already ahead! The evening before he trined, consulted with Mars, who is always on the leading edge, and has been excited, expecting things to pop! Mercury has the word, and soon as, is hoofing it outta here to give the good news, gather the local troops! Good chance you signed some papers in the last six days.

Saturn is no dummy! He can just feel all the energy around him and knows better than to over delay and miss the magic moments. He can think pretty fast on his feet when a lot is at stake. Cardinal signs like action, and this scenario just can’t be stopped for long!

Moon and Chiron are sextile Lilith and Mars in Aquarius, the sign of change! Again, when Saturn’s requirements are satisfied, Mars and Lilith will offer an entire group of independent women and leaders in behalf of our efforts! This combo can sweep us ALL off our feet! Hang on!

And Moon and Chiron trine the Moon’s North node, sweetly links the Cardinal squares with the Fixed squares! Moon never lets sleeping dogs lie, and quite more so in Aries! She and Chiron are acting like power boosters. Trine her own North Node bodes well for the new beginnings she hopes for. The North Node swings the balance to equalize the South Node in Aquarius, her Past. In Leo it’s less for Aquarian friends and collaborators; it’s more for what’s in your own heart’s light now.

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

Lilith, woman of power, in Aquarius, the changemaker sign, is at the root at 1 degree! She squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. She won’t be able to move him entirely, because he, though new in Taurus, his new job is to test for organic truth and anchor that in Taurus. What we had always wanted is now couched in new times, so it has to prove itself in current tense. Uranus is square the fixed sign Moon’s Nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars and Lilith are at the Aquarian South Node, powers of the Past called upon, in this case for chaos! Yet they have a rather odd resonance of invincibility. They want change, and it WILL happen! Though Mars and Lilith are independents, when they call the other independents together they are a force to be reckoned with. The Nodes, in turn, square Venus in Scorpio, but they are always retrograde and are moving away from her. Venus squared Mars way back on the 8th and they didn’t agree. Now she has moved past him. Mercury will make a semisextile with Venus, but it’s not a major aspect. Venus may have memories, but is not likely much interested any more. By numbers we have a grand square. By active planetary motion we really have another T Square. 

Fixed signs are meant to stabilize, anchor, focus and keep our attention on what’s at hand. But two of these signs Aquarius and Scorpio want significant change. Aquarius wants to mend planetary ways, Scorpio wants to transform you body and Soul so you can do the job AQ wants!

Uranus is at the point of the fixed T; Saturn is the point of the Cardinal T! Saturn is the venerable traditional conservative in charge, while Uranus is leading edge technology, often ahead of its times, the Futurist, Rebel with many causes! Interesting that Saturn is leading the Cardinal signs that want action now, yet he is a perfect leader to keep them all corralled so they don’t make mistakes and waste time! Ironically, Uranus, the ChangeMaker, is in charge of the fixed signs that are meant to stabilize us!

The rest of the planets….

Jupiter and Pluto finished their last sextile the 12th. So much potential healing ability was given to be used during these further planetary transitions. See more

Essentially, Venus, and Neptune in his own sign Pisces, stand alone. Neptune is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time. Venus will NOT trine Neptune until Winter Solstice, Dec 21! She retrogrades at 10 Scorpio 50 on Oct 5, already slowing way down to make the Rx station. She stands still for many days at that turn.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and getting close to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

This Harvest Moon has a lot of close knit interaction and wants a lot of change! For those of you who have 0 to 8 degree factors in your charts, it is likely to be an intense few days, very involved with what’s at hand, emphasizing heightened person to person interactions.

It’s a pleasure to meet you ~

New Moon!

Monday October 8 at 8:47 PM Pacific, 15 Libra 48

Square Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Retrograde, Fixed Star Rigel – Again!

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Libra, the sign of relationships. They are looking for equality, each offering vastly different qualities. Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since all the other planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

They are challenged by their square to Pluto! He is most certainly in the glow of the Sun’s Path around Earth, the Ecliptic. At this point he will conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, in only 22 DAYS! He may be so absorbed he hardly notices Sun/Moon. He is small, yet he is a powerful Being, and now he’s even being lighted by the most major Light we know! His power would seem beyond formidable, endless. He could be healer, he could be Evil personified. He’s in Capricorn, either builder or crusher. Libra better tread very carefully. This is not a ‘social event’ where you can just walk out the door with no consequences. Pluto knows your intent just about any day. With his powers amplified, you better go in with a clean heart. If you pass his tests, he will help you, build an awesome ‘house’ for you whether it is healing your body or building the Temple. If you don’t pass his tests, he will heal you so you can. If it is not the right time, he will know that too. If the idea is glamorous but false, it will be replaced or vaporized. You will be transformed, like it or not, one way or another!

Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place Pluto is at. There is an alliance factor. Sun is charging Pluto to the core. Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame. So, it may come to pass the Sun and Moon have their audience. Libra is just the ticket, an ace in delicate situations, reading every nuance, able to step forward or backup quickly as needed. It’s an intricate dance that can have extraordinary results. Respect is everything for Libra’s sometimes nervous subtle perceptions, Pluto’s well protected unspoken fears, Capricorn’s standing, reputation. All kinds of poise will be needed for this dance.

Sun and Moon just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. They are more empathetic. Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. He has freshly transferred some of this to them so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Mercury, also in Libra, is inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, tapping his wellspring of healing knowledge. Mercury’s quick ability may make all the difference. Just a few well placed words at a tense moment, can release the impasse, everyone takes a breath. Mercury is also out-of-sign opposite Uranus. Mercury is skilled at ‘interpreting’ his own way, in this case taking a Uranian odd idea but presenting it as plausibly sensible, catching everyone’s attention. All of a sudden everyone is calm. Oh, that’s what he meant. I see.

Venus is now retrograde and going ‘backward’ is squaring Mars! She’s too nice, and he isn’t. In Scorpio she might not say anything at all, but got what was going on behind the scenes. Mars in Aquarius is just itching to do something shocking. He might be rude or sexually inappropriate. Venus in Scorpio is hard to ruffle, but if he crosses the line, and Venus cuts loose, he may wish he hadn’t, and other people will be on her side. No excuse for her to be mean though. There could be a price connected to that caper. Libra is lawsuits. If things go the other way, Mars may shock Venus into coming out and taking a powerful stand! He could find her helping him present his inspiring project to clients who see the value she sees in it. She could do some fundraising for him if they get past their differences. Just get all the credit ratings, details and facts. See more about Venus Rx!

Mixed Grand Square! The early degrees are again involved, but not near as much as at the Full Harvest Moon. With Uranus retrograde and Saturn moving forward, they are no longer actively trining. The Moon’s Nodes are retrograding to square Uranus though. The Aquarius/Leo axis will find itself being shifted merely by being in Uranus’s company. In Taurus he has subtle electricity. He will have them consider practical changes. The South Node in Aquarius doesn’t like tampering with his genius, yet there is the planet of genius challenging him! The South Node in Aquarius is our past we hang onto, and Uranus is the ChangeMaker evolutionary futurist! What were genius ideas long ago need an update! Leo likes a good show, so is more likely to play but he is the Pet, likes his comforts. At the North Node he is looking for improvements. Taurus wants it to be a safe change that  will bring more comfort if possible, less indulgence at the expense of Earth. Mercury in late Libra can negotiate among them at this point, but when he goes into Scorpio the next day, he may have his own agenda. He may not even want to talk about it, and is stubborn if he does. Gotta show him the value and if it will make money to make him move. Or he may find himself shaking the bushes for funding for the biggest project he has ever worked on!

Fixed Star Rigel! Last month the New Moon at 17 Virgo squared, challenged Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! THIS MONTH, the New Moon at 15 Libra 48 charmingly trines Rigel! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel proudly champions Libra’s handkerchief into battle and comes back with it to return it to his fair one! She is inspired by his magnificent behavior and vows to live her life more fully herself. They make quite the team!

IN THE BACKGROUND

Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1, only that once! They aren’t quite close enough just yet for action, but see more to get ready for it. It is part of the 10 day sequence of aspects started when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Libra lives the crucial function of connecting us, negotiating with dignity and respect, rebalancing our relationships, securing vital alliances. It is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Jupiter sextile Pluto! Sun, Saturn, Uranus Grand Earth Trine/Kite!

Sunday Aug 26 at 4:56 AM Pacific, 3 Pisces/Virgo 12

Virgo Full Moon Woodcut Art Nick Wroblewsky

Woodcuts artist Nick Wroblewski works in Duluth, MN where it snows during winter. He has time to do this amazing art! Many Virgos are superb craftspeople, and wood is often their medium. Facebook  Website

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury retrograde, Mars finishing his tomorrow! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

What IS big about this Full Moon is that it is leading up to the financially tasty Jupiter sextile Pluto Sep 12! They are less than 3 degrees apart NOW! This aspect is also good for healing and powerful learning. Luck and expertise will go hand in hand. Don’t be surprised if big dogs/horses and a we bit of gambling get in the mix. It is excellent for installing reliable business programs and placing people in very fitting positions. Things WILL get done and live long, and it will be fun! A special kind of fame and some honor may come with it. Consider imports/exports. Combine business travel with visits to sacred site. Keep your Spirit clean. Everything we are doing now, is leading to these possibilities! Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Be ready to take the chance!

A caveat. At the time of the Full Moon, Venus is square Pluto. The square presents difficulties that need solving to clear the way. Venus might not get her way, and you might not entirely either. Why? Likely there are hidden costs and someone has to pay. It may be tempting to cheat or steal, but this is NOT the time, and watch your back, stay out of harm’s way. Any new relationship in these few days aren’t exactly likely keepers – the potential partner may have serious health or financial issues, or someone that requires them to take care of that for them. Admit your issues that keep you from a greater success. Be a tad more kind, but not a pushover either. Perfection would be lovely, but when do you think that’s going to happen, right? If your sale price is more wishful thinking than reality, get opinions from some other  experienced sellers and make the needed adjustments. If your prices on your art have been too low, raise ’em.

Uranus is the key planet with a strong Earth Grand Trine/Kite formed to it! Sun has given Light in the past 2 days. In Virgo s/he is keenly seeing the great changes coming. She has also consulted with Saturn about when the best times are to do what! Uranus has lots of friends and Virgo will organize the crew, tend to their needs. Saturn divvys up the work so the most will get done in the least time. Uranus offers extraordinary insights to earth changes, the flow of goods and food, basic financial matters of our time, how to stay stable while change, sometimes chaos, are about us. Though grand tines can sometimes slack off, thinking all will be ok, Virgo and Capricorn are both work signs – Virgo with the infinite daily matters and fragments, Capricorn with the timeframe in mind, constantly adjusting the flow as needed.

Moon, in her Piscean empathy, sits midpoint (making the KITE), equidistant between sometimes tough old Saturn, and the wildcard Uranus, though Uranus in Taurus may be more steady. Either can be a challenge to Moon though the sextile aspects are good. Saturn claims experience and isn’t moved by ‘over’ emotional or unsafe conditions when saving the down and out. Uranus is faster than the speed of light, even in Taurus and it’s hard to get his attention. But if any sign can, it would be Pisces, and Moon is so sensitive she senses his slightest shift even before he does it! Pisces softens with Uranus with truer than true insights, senses when Saturn shifts a particle and goes for the opening. Pisces has its own way of permeating and following, can be enchanting. Uranus is so surprised when he finds Pisces tagging along that he listens!

Sun, Moon, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, and the Moon’s Nodes are from 1 to 5 degrees! It’s a tight bunch, all influencing the others! Sun opposite Moon in PIsces is the life of it, having the feeling of what’s up. Pisces is super sensitive and Father Sun want’s to know all the details in Virgo. Pisces sees the dream, and Virgo wants to take it on, even if it is, maybe especially if it is, detail by detail. That is their expertise. They want to serve, whatever it takes that they can do or learn to do. And they will do it well. Trust me. Pisces loves music, and most musicians I know have Virgo strong in their charts. Great music requires fine tuned adjustments and Virgo can do it!

Sun and Moon both activated Chiron, now previewing in Aries. There are new ways to live a quality life, to heal from old wounds. New relationships are forming, whether it is ourself to ourself, or to others with information we didn’t know existed! The business world is changing as we do or don’t connect with other countries. Business rules and methods are changing profoundly with computers and the internet. Jobs and careers come and go. Mutable signs like Pisces and Virgo are good at adjusting, being flexible. Both want the best and are alert to shifts in the valence. And it is so important who we work with.

Saturn is retrograding back to almost square Chiron. We are feeling it. The brush comes so close we are sure we are doomed, but it doesn’t happen. The fears we have are the hints there are things that need to be taken care of anyway. So do it. Be mindful to deal with health matters that nag you. Keep watch over certain friends that may need some assistance. Be gentle with your expectations. Get help if you need it. New ventures in business may be challenging. Do your best and know you did what you could.

Mars retrograde in Capricorn is being sure the latest tools and skills are being introduced and shown how to be used, where they fit in our lives. Mars goes back into Aquarius Sep 10, the day after the New Moon. Mars quickly scouts the area for new friends, inventors, group action leaders, people with their pulse on immediate events. Mars made connections while in Capricorn and will be sure these Aquarian type people have channels to the tools and supplies they need to continue their work effectively.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!The Moon in Pisces lends magic and miracles! Sun in Virgo will work day by day, side by side with you to make them come true! Blessed be.

The New Moon stands just past opposition Neptune in his own sign Pisces! There may have been confusion at the same time as insights. You may not have felt like working or ended up doing something you didn’t expect but was just right. Fears and doubts are behind us. Knowing what they were keeps us on our toes. Spirit is our guide across the river.

Next, Moon and Sun sextile Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio are both signs of perfection. Virgo keeps the budget, tracks the return on the investment. Scorpio uses the data to invest. Great returns are possible! Oh, yes, works for me! Virgo, the herbalist and practical technician, works hand in hand with the Scorpio midwife and saves people from dying or helps them kindly with the process. Send in your application and ask for the money you want. You may get the job and/or the funding you need. I can feel your tears of gratitude. If you are approached to be a backer, give it a chance.

To add strength to the Jupiter combination, the New Moon is also trine Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, so it powerfully assesses what Jupiter is raving about. Capricorn realistically points out any possible flaws that might occur over time, so a less emotional decision can be well made. If you all decide to go ahead, reassess at an interval that would likely work well. Have a back up plan ready to step into in case it is needed. But chances are it will be a success that may need a few fixes along the way. Sun, Jupiter, Pluto alliances are just about invincible! Get out your calculators! Get your team lined up and start working toward your goal! Launch a business, website, important blog!

SUPER DAY! Try to have it wrapped up by the Sep 12 Jupiter Sextile Pluto at 0:56 AM Pacific! That mid of night time means it is most strongly in effect on Sep 11, when Sun sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you amazing results! (SEE your astrologer for you personal timing!)

3 Sign Changes

Venus just changed signs from Libra, her second sign, to Scorpio! Libra relationships are social and public; Scorpio relationships are personal and private. Libra makes cross cultural partners; Scorpio is part of the corporation, financial dealings. Libra is fine arts; Scorpio is psychological, skillful intricate healing in the deepest layers of our psyche. Venus now puts her blessing on delicate matters, places we might not be so proud of, yet are part of us. Sharing our story, so others know they are not the only one, may save lives. There are survivors holding their heads up. If we can know how they did it, we can do that our own way and stand on our own again. Virgo takes notes and especially pays attention to the process.

Mars is at the last degree of Capricorn. The New Moon emphasizes how Capricorn’s work is the wellspring poised at the brink of change! Mars goes into Aquarius the next day, Sep 10 at 5:56 PM Pacific! While Mars previously, in its retrograde cycle, went ahead in to AQ then retrograded back into Capricorn, we had a preview of why we should tend Capricorn’s mission with such dedication. AQ will need every bit of that foundation to carry on the massive changes needed across the board – political, economic, environmental, humanitarian.

Sep 25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back to Pisces to strengthen our dreams, beliefs, intuitive understandings. We see more of the value in all beings, want to save Souls. Right now we are taking a good look at how to do get those dreams rolling, make potent new beginnings, how to lead efficiently and right to the pivotal point!

Grand Fixed Signs Square – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

We have Mars at 29, Venus and Chiron at 0 degrees, and Saturn and Uranus at 2 degrees in a network, each affecting the other! Throw in the Moon’s Nodes at 5 Leo/Aquarius and we have a grand fixed Square! Mars will square Venus. He wants it now; she may have previous plans, but he is persistent. They meet, but hoped for results may not be possible, too late. Or they quibble through it and hope it works anyway. Best is to revisit when Mars gets into AQ. He will want some new different things then. He squares Uranus, the planet of AQ. Uranus is more wild than Mars, but in Taurus may be perversely stubborn, not as quick to respond, or possibly doesn’t want to make as much change as Mars is advocating. Mars can’t count on his friend Uranus this time. Venus might be shy and a little put off by what may seem to be demanding rough or strange ways. The Moon’s North Node, the nodes alway retrograde, is making the squares with Uranus then Venus, last, the opposition/conjunction with Mars. The South Node in AQ is the past, so those old shift-under-your-feet AQ shocker styles won’t work as well this time. Surprise, unnerving strategies won’t be received so kindly. Shift over to the Leo North Node. Be more transparent, put a light on things, put your heart in it and see what happens. It still might not work. Fixed squares often stay just as they are until things move out of the pattern. It’s ok. You all got to take a look.

Also in the degree pattern are Mars sextile Chiron and Saturn trine Uranus. Chiron in Aries offers new ways to do business, relationships. Back in Pisces he offers more understanding to what is going on in our Spirits and the delicacy that may be needed to convince Venus. Saturn trine Uranus is one of those close-but-doesn’t-become-exact aspects. You hope, it gets mighty close, but that’s it. You end up letting go of that chapter. What does help is Venus sextiles Saturn! She can call on her father, her mentor, and elder she respects, an experienced expert. She wants to do what will work in the long term. Mars may be right but his timing may be off. People aren’t quite ready yet. In Scorpio she may not like that Leo Node bright light, but if she and Mars meet later on to review, there may be some surprising results as things are transforming quickly in spite of the fixed signs.

Fixed Star Rigel The new Moon at 17 Virgo squares Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel may stir up Virgo, or Virgo is not impressed by Rigel’s boasting. He is formidable and no pushover no matter how intelligent Virgo is, but she may come to realize she needs a champion!

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Virgo welcomes planetary clean up, polishing our systems, living more purely each day. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

New & Full Moon Connections Throughout! Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde!

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

Cosmic DNA, evolutionary strands, a weaving of multitude, an unseen pilot lighting the way, time travel…..spiritual intelligence incarnate. We do the same hours every day, yet no two days are alike. Unique waves of consciousness never experienced before. Recognition, Fusion, Alliance, Passage.

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique, the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that is at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm – everything! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

x
Mercury starts in Leo for only two days, but they are oh, so potent! 
The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun! The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Priestess! Virgo is the sign of organization and service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo. Regulus is one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the South, Summer Solstice, Archangel Raphael, Doctor of Medicine.

Mercury moves along into Virgo, but returns to Leo for a 10 day station (standstill as it turns direction forward), Aug 31 to Sep 9. Mercury is the planet of magical synapses, within oneself and with others! Words get around and we see their many faces. We think, we speak to our core intelligence, the who we are. In Leo there is the search for authenticity, being in the heart, radiant with natural Light. It’s a creative posture, alive with brilliant potential. It calls for a purity of Being that gives the strength from being true. Mercury handshakes its way with a smile that moves the Soul! It passes it on. Irresistible! At the last two degrees of Leo it is mature and sure. Leo being a fixed sign; once it has found its way, it is the Light on the Path, steady and with a remarkable Will to succeed.

Mercury in Virgo, one of its own signs, is clever and succinct, lines up connections so those synapses can fire more frequently. It aligns DNA-like rows of synapses that exchange energy as they travel. It keeps energy points clean so there is clear, quick and accurate exchange. Properly lined up and in peak condition, they can self create and continue. They are strong, flexible. Make turns, reverses to review. They twist to vantage points to look back on how to profit from past experiences and glimpse the future.

The everyday experience might look like how it is situated at the Aug 7 Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse:

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Bookkeeping and services, health matters, getting some rest, streamlining your life, landlord/tenanting may require your attention. Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to make changes, get engaged. Mercury turns forward Sept 5.

The Aug 12 Retrograde is at 11 Virgo 38, square the fixed star Antares in the constellation Scorpio! Squares mean challenges most any day, but to Antares it may not be an easy challenge. Since Mercury direction changes also mean being in Station, an 8 day period, the energy will be held a good 8 days. Since Antares is at 9 Sagittarius 46+, we’ll extend that time to 5 days before the 12th, 5 days following. Antares is another of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the West, autumnal equinox, Archangel Uriel/Oriel, Fire of God. Rob Tillett sums up Antares saying: Spirit of adventure, obstinacy, injuries to eyes, honours, sudden loss, stubborn, suspicious, violent, several marriages. A super simplified interpretation by me would be Virgo wants to work, Sagittarius wants to play and doesn’t show up on time. That’s not a disaster, but you might lose your job and that could become a challenge! If you’re going surfing during work time, take the boss with you!

The Retrograde cycle starts with the Star of the South, Regulus, and ends in connection with the Star of the West, Antares.

Retrograde in Leo, Mercury may change his mind about his opinion about himself. And that’s likely to flip or shift again as there are further developments while Mercury is in station – appears to be standing still in the sky Sep 1 to 8 – then moves forward again and finishes Leo, for the year, Sep 9. The choices of self presentation, personal style – words, posture, looks, colors, lighting – will definitely change. Educational matters, seminar schedules, advertising text, romantic concerns, will change, adjust, maybe improve with adjustments. Consider, research, but wait. Redesign, check fit, availability, but wait. If it passes Virgo specs during the first week Mercury is back in Virgo, go for it! To be on the safe side, get changes clients make approved with signatures and dates, keep receipts, get warranties.

During the Leo station, Mercury Rx conjuncts Mars at 28 Leo 43 on Sep 3. Sep 5 Mercury turns Direct, as Mars moves forward into Virgo. Traveling closely together it takes until Sep 16 for Mercury to make its catchup second conjunction at 7 Virgo 13! In Leo, Mercury interviews the champion, announces a winner, names the leader! He announces the new creation, the exciting new curriculum! Mercury in Virgo puts the energy into action, organizing efforts to achieve the project  A garden may be started, a new health regime makes the news, study efforts back at school are swiftly dispatched. New hires, private contractors, are welcomed gratefully.

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

  1. The July 23 New Moon Is the day before the Mercury Rx cycle starts! It will help you see what’s at the bottom of things, the new beginning you would like to aim for. Moon conjunct Sun is a mighty union especially when the Sun is in his own sign Leo! It’s time to stand tall and have the pride of your own sweet Spirit!
  2. Before the August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse, Mercury is close to opposite Neptune in Pisces! Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, and Neptune rules the opposite sign Pisces and is in Pisces! It’s almost like a double opposition! Mercury is intrigued by things out of its usual scope, a higher order perhaps. It can be used as a universal model. Things flow, health improves, you arrive at a vantage point of synchronicity that surprises you by its infinitely more favorable links. Logic and intuition work well together. They stay close but with Mercury slowing to retrograde, they don’t become exact, but considerations are stirred. They are within three degrees 10 days, from August 7 to 17. The exact aspect isn’t made, the outcome revealed isn’t revealed, until Sep 19. See more!
  3. Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE is at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse! He trines Dark Moon Lilith at 9 Capricorn. Laser logic and bold feminine success. Tending and building. Cool mind, clear focused passionate power! Use the Eclipse message as your Guide.
  4. The Sep 6 Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon is not linked to degrees in the Mercury Rx cycle, but is linked in time, happening the day after Mercury goes Direct, forward! Mercury is in station, appearing to stand still in the sky, at that time. Mercury holds the degree for 8 days, 4 before and 4 after the direction turn. There is a deep intake, a focus, mulling it over, a strengthening, an anchoring is possible. Take care what you hold in your thoughts in these 8 day periods. This time we look at the span of Pisces to Virgo. The Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, his own sign! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time. Mars newly at 0 Virgo, conjunct fixed star Regulus (see more), wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time!
  5. The Sep 19 Virgo New Moon is at 27 Virgo, while Mercury is finishing his cycle at 11 Virgo on the same day! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

July 23 First Leo New Moon at 0 Leo 44
xxxx24 Mercury at 28 degrees Leo Retrograde Cycle starts
xxxx25 Mercury into Virgo, one of its own signs

Aug    7 Full Green Corn Moon at 15 Aquarius/Leo 25
xxxx12 Mercury Retrograde at 11 degrees Virgo
xxxx21 Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!
xxxx31 Mercury back in Leo only 10 days until Sep 9

Sep    5 Mercury Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Eclipse degree! Mars at 0 Virgo conjunct fixed star Regulus!
xxxxx6 Full Corn Moon 13 Pisces/Virgo 53
xxxxx9 Mercury returns to Virgo, one of its own signs
xxxx19 Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27 + Last day of Mercury Retrograde Cycle, Mercury at 11 Virgo 28!

When Mercury is in Leo, those of you with chart factors in 26 to 29 degrees of fixed signs, Leo/Aquarius, Taurus/Scorpio, will feel the challenge. Those with factors in those same degrees of Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius, will more likely be excited by the changes!

The majority of the Retrograde is 0 to 11 degrees Virgo. Those of you with chart factors in mutable signs, Virgo/Pisces, Gemini/Sagittarius, will be challenged when Mercury is in Virgo. The Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn will likely find it a smoother ride.

Wishing you all the very best. By my thinking, this Mercury Retrograde is significant! Make it so.

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns!

capricorn-bruce-kirkby-adventurer-goats

Though many of you have never heard of Jan 8, 1968 Capricorn Bruce Kirkby, he is well known and accomplished in his field!

Per TravelChannel.com, in the world of travel, Canadian Bruce Kirkby is a jack-of-all-trades: adventurer, guide, writer and photographer. His journeys have taken him to more than 80 countries, including the wildest and most remote corners of the planet. He has crossed Iceland by foot, traveled through Mongolia by horse, been shot at in Borneo, and been taken hostage in Ethiopia.

Bruce is a weekly travel columnist for The Globe and Mail. He is the author of 2 best-selling books, Sand Dance: By Camel Across Arabia’s Great Southern Desert (2001) and The Dolphin’s Tooth: A Decade in Search of Adventure (2007).

Bruce’s work also appears regularly in publications including The New York Times, EnRoute and Time magazine, and National Geographic selected his images to be among the best adventure photography of the decade. Previously, Bruce hosted CBC’s prime-time reality show No Opportunity Wasted, for which his mission was to help regular people overcome personal fears and accomplish the seemingly impossible.

Quite a resume!

You may have seen him and his family on the Travel Channel’s series Big Crazy Family Adventure. It follows the family as they travel from British Columbia to Ladakh, India (more than 13,000 miles), by every mode of transportation except planes.

Bruce is a dedicated family man, and backpacks with GOATS – the Capricorn animal! Amid the clatter of hooves and tiny bleats, we were under way. In the 100 mile pack trip with his 4 year old son Bodi, one of the goats he selected for the trip, the snowy white one, was named Capricorn! Each carried about 30 pounds of gear. Their lightweight fabric saddles were held in place by plastic buckles, the panniers slung using Velcro and hooks. Son’s questions? Will the goats miss home? Where will they sleep? Where will we sleep? When is snack time? Read more about this precious adventure!

Yep, their families worry, but Bruce says:  Heck, I’m trying to get the grandmothers to come on more adventures with us!

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Capricorn!

Capricorn Builders Working Smart

Building a great New Year working smart and working together!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. 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! Perfect! Time now to roll up our sleeves, join forces, build for a sustainable future! Mid degree Capricorns will find their old debris being hauled away. Overburdened, they became forgeries of their former selves. At core, they are molten steel, reformed in strength, meeting their destiny with an exceptional resolve. Some relationships will undoubtedly be fated, debts were and are made, some paid. Healing may be hard work but worth it. Some healing will be of past painful experiences, some of skin and bones. A therapist for mind and a physical therapist for body could be worth their salt. Step through the fear.

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! In their office Capricorn is looking over the time sheets, the return on investment. It knows how precious our efforts are, how our cumulative work adds up. Lost time affects us all as others wait for us. It learns values from those ROI sheets, what’s real. Neptune dreams a vision for Capricorn. Sensible or not, it’s a template. Capricorn builds Neptunes’ dream, magically joining studs and artfully building in stone, a gift, a diamond forever. Might be a temple, an archway through the garden, a divine wall to keep us safe, dividing local from wild, a set of keys for your new home!

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. Capricorn’s planet is Saturn, and they are so unlike Uranus, Aquarius. Saturn was Uranus’ son, and Saturn was the bad boy – killed his Father! Usually we think of Uranus as the heretic, perhaps unkempt, unruly unpredictable. The amazing part of the story is: The period in which Cronus [Saturn] ruled was called the Golden Age, as the people of the time had no need for laws or rules; everyone did the right thing, and immorality was absent. Capricorn in today’s astrology is still the one in charge. Uranus is the inventor, networker, internet, flight, electronics expert! Capricorn is earth; Uranus rules the heavens, and in Aries is fiery, challenging every moment! Uranus leads Capricorn the scientist into unexplored realms, in the company of super leaders. Capricorn keeps their feet on the ground, incorporating extraordinary concepts into daily life!

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. Traditional business and a good marriage are just right for most Capricorns. They are willing to work. Chiron in Pisces helps them see the inner workings of things, understand more subtle relationship structures, let go when necessary. Chiron calls on them to heal from deep past wounds, to teach what they learned. Chiron in Neptune principles may be idealized, but Capricorn expertly converts them to useful ways of living anyone can do while still keeping them magical!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Capricorn is Saturn’s sign, but Sagittarius is one of those quite different neighboring signs. Saturn and Capricorn are Earth. Sagittarius is easily sidetracked fire. Sag is far vision personified while Saturn has a steady unblinking here and now focus! Of course, if Sagittarius shows Capricorn the easiest path, and promises a bonus, who wouldn’t keep that focus?! Saturn in Sagittarius shows that even having fun can BE the business! Two for the price of one! Paid to play! Sag is always looking out ahead. Early course corrections can really pay off. Capricorn holds Sagittarius accountable for his grand ideas, and asks him to stick around until the project is well established.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Capricorn is not seduced by cute or merely pretty; intelligence makes a difference. They aren’t as social. Your words need to carry weight. They are not so impressed by who you know, as they are by who you introduce them too. If you represent them successfully in court they are happy to pay. Capricorns love classic art, historical documents, structures by adept artisans. Jupiter can artfully expand Capricorn’s business, and may have just the right ways of making suggestions. Capricorn needs to listen carefully and kindly because Jupiter in Libra can have good intentions and excellent advice. Jupiter in Libra has a finely tuned sense of balance, perspectives that incorporate the best of both sides. Jupiter may be a bit overblown at times in his enthusiasm, but look at the backbone of what they are saying! That’s your framework to start from!

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns! May your new year be productive and rewarding in every way!


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….

Capricorn, the Winter Magicians!

Capricorn the Mountain Goat at home in the rocks!

Capricorns, Goats, are devilishly and delightfully capricious. As youngsters, tails up, they run and leap and play at full tilt along the rock tops! They are impulsive and make unpredictable zig zag turns and twists in mid air! If you aren’t watching, it could seem devious when they sneak up on you! They are not afraid of mingling, nor easily led. They have a keen sense for BS, and will go contrary if there is a problem with morality.

Though generally obedient children and law abiding adults, there is an inbred independence, a need to be free to lead! As leaders they are free! Walking sure footedly, wherever footing is available, takes them places others never go. No wonder at times they seem to be ‘above’ us, aloof, maybe even intimidating.

With their high intelligence, command and leadership are natural. And they can back it up! They can lower their goat horns and butt their way through difficult obstacles. They can push forward past or chase off competitors and predators, defend their own! They may be exhausted, get down on their knees from time to time, but hard work is something they can do. It carries them through.

Winter Magicians! They are keen survivors that can thrive in sparse conditions, hostile or negligent situations. They make do with what is there, get through hard times. They have courage born of necessity. Perseverance and stamina are incredible, bringing successes beyond their humble beginnings. Yet, at times, remembrances and fear of falling back may bring seeming greed. Really it is their reaction to fear of starvation.

Loyal. Parents and family are important, whether their parents, particularly their Father, was there for them or for some reason couldn’t be. Many vow to be the best parents they can be, knowing what loss feels like. Being overprotective or demanding with rigid rules, implies to the child that there is much to be feared or that your child is, will not be capable, so go a little easier. Let them make a few errors and learn how to recover – another good old fashioned life skill. No shame or embarrassment necessary for an honest effort. Your children will understand the goodness of discipline, how being given responsibilities is a trust.

Cappies are generally healthy, even more so as they get older! Skeleton and bones, the knees, joints, teeth, skin, nails and scalp are your points of concern. Arthritis, rheumatism, tooth decay, crooked teeth and skin problems may plague you. Talk with vibrant experts excited about their specialty, who keep up in their field and aren’t afraid to explore alternative possibilities! See a sports doctor who is interested in more than day to day surviving and maintenance at a tolerable level! See someone who wants your above average, even exceptional health no matter what age you are! Look for experts that want to heal the cause and never have to see you again! LOL!

Capricorn works can be earth sciences and discovery, is the revered CEO, are well known stone mason artisans and remarkable builders. Working with the aged, retirement services, senior communities. Law and law enforcement. Rock and ice climbers, winter sports champions! Historical preservation, environmentalists that use natural primitive ways, low cost utilities, sustainability.

Interesting that the neighboring signs, Sagittarius and Capricorn both have 1/2 and 1/2 symbols. Sagittarius is the Centaur, half human, half horse. Capricorn is the Seagoat, half goat, half fish. Since ancient times, Capricorn was also associated with Mephistopheles, a demon featured in German folklore. And at Christmas, Capricorn’s time, we have Krampus, who scares away evil winter ghosts. He is half goat (Capricorn), half demon. These signs belong to two or more dimensions, both often quite psychic. Capricorn is a most complex sign, perhaps even the most complicated sign. It takes a special person to befriend a Capricorn or be befriended by one.

Time comes when age is an honor with wisdom and a softening. We do what we can. We do our best at the time. Super professionalism, a career, mentoring, melts into time for ourselves perhaps. A staunch by the book religion may become more personally intuitive. Black and white patterns with squares are still there, but it becomes an inner expression, a merger of the art of an adept and motivation for the engine of life.

There are so many famous Capricorns in all walks of life! Here are just a very few: Michelle Obama, Justin Trudeau, Kate Middleton, Khalil Gibran, Elvis Presley, Kevin Costner, Stephen Hawking and Nostradamus!

Blessed be! See you on the mountain!
