Six months 4 degree sequence! Strongly feminine with fiery accents! Fixed Star Fomalhaut!

2019 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2020 Jan, Feb, Mar New Moons are all at 4 degrees, a SIX months sequence! The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap, AQ and Pisces. All these Moons are sequentially resonant to each other! If you have factors at 4 degrees or very close to that, let’s say up to 2 to 3 degrees, in your astrology chart, they will be activated over and over. Each Moon being in a different Sign, your chart will be activated from different angles each time, some more favorably than others. Plan out those 6 months with a goal in mind. Be prepared, do things favorable to each Moon Sign! Check out my write-ups, and those particular Moon write-ups online to get perspective. 

The New Moon is a darker time, sometimes to be consulted in solitude, other times to be shared sweetly. It is a time of Magical revelations, merging with unseeable beings, on clear nights the Stars show us their secrets. It can be a divine balance with bright and busy social daytime, maybe the most restful of all the nights, the deepest slumbers.

Scorpio brings us into cold nights, maybe indoor Circle gatherings, sharing a warm fire, pumpkin pie and cider. This New Moon in particular prepares us for Halloween and Day of the Dead. Samhain is a sacred time of considering our mortality and celebrating those we have loved that are no longer with us in body. It is a special time of gratitude. In the US, Halloween is wild and fun, alter-ego costumes right and left! Pagan Samhain is often private and serious. In Mexico Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos, is publicly brilliantly celebrated with candles and giant Marigolds, entire cemeteries ablaze with light and color, celebrants hanging out there all night long!  

This Moon is sweet, quite feminine! Mama Moon and Father Sun are together deeply entwined; dear Venus and Mercury are together, all in feminine water sign Scorpio! Moon and Sun are sharing, are in fusion, become One. Scorpio is deep and dark, yet carries the Kundalini internal and eternal flame at all times. They flourish in the underworlds of caves, tunnels, channels of underwater tides. They are not afraid of death, or living, healing quickly and miraculously. Psychological depths intrigue them. What does it all mean and how does it work? The morgue is an intriguing place.

The New Moon has just passed an oblique aspect with Chiron who is with Lilith in rebellious Aries! That pair is wild and fierce, fearless leaders full of new ideas! They will quickly talk with anyone who will listen. They shoot straight from the hip and want healing now, not just talking about it! They are social first responders, instantly adapting to the circumstances at hand. If the meeting is not on fertile ground, they move right on! Moon and Sun got some hot quick ideas and marvel that they didn’t get burned in the process! WOW! The local frequency was just raised!

So now, Moon and Sun are not even surprised by being exactly opposite Uranus, the planet of awakening, evolution, change, revolution, the unexpected. Uranus is in the firmly patient persistent sign Taurus. They are noted for being calm, yet there can still be surprises. Scorpio may feel quite safe to extend a handshake and ask questions. Uranus is brilliant, so Scorpio may find themselves impressed by the range of thoughtfulness and commonsense ideas proposed. It is a time of new beginnings, so why not now?! Sustainability comes up, environmental matters and patterns – food production, clean water, extinctions. Humanitarian matters like human rights are on the table, each coming up with possibilities, potential funding, how to get people involved at every level, social media magnets and magnates!

Mercury has just spent time with Venus. Venus puts the beauty in Scorpio, a profound attractiveness, charisma that seduces, enchants, blesses. Mercury has been gifted with insights about true love, speaking kindly, sharing, giving gratitude. Of course, there are always times when Venus is greedy, selfish and obsessed with the reputation of her loved one. Mercury may have to do some very pointed fast talking to open her mind to alternative possibilities. It kinda takes one to know one, so he has a better chance than most would. Scorpio is a strong sign, so Venus, who has gotten away with things for a long time, may have behavioral habits and thinks she’s right because she is pretty. Both ways may be needed, the gentle feminine approach, or the in-your-face-omg, approach. There may be little time. 

Jupiter is rather on his own in Sagittarius, free to ramble. He sits loosely in a midpoint that has passed, between Venus and Pluto. Venus just passed by. Jupiter has encouraged her to think bigger, adjust her wants to a bigger range. She has been inspired to learn some more about her next steps. Jupiter assured her she will have success because, really, she is worth more than she realizes. She has worked alone a lot, but now it’s time to partner up. Jupiter has passed Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter has a broad range of perspective that takes Pluto’s powerful knowledge to a more modern potential! Pluto is no fool! He is glad to step things up.

Mars is a bit dismayed, tired, with having been blocked, delayed, the additional requirements Saturn in Capricorn has put in his way. If Mars wasn’t in Libra adjusting and balancing, finessing, an unusual skill for Mars, the whole shebang may have ended right there! But sometimes Saturn, though himself the obstacle, uses his wisdom. He was once there too. He encourages impatient Mars, offers helpful suggestions. Saturn knows when it’s a good project, just needs a little tweaking or some different timing. Mars has another outlet that is a side shot! He’s inconjunct Neptune. Neptune is in his own sign Pisces and if Mars will sit for a moment old magical Neptune will send some intuitive insights. They could be minor differences that change everything, or frame the project from a whole nother point of view and it suddenly all makes sense! 

This all makes even more sense when we see Saturn is about to sextile Neptune Nov 8! Saturn and Neptune are working right along, so Mars has just stepped in at the best time! In Libra Mars wants beauty, harmony, good connections with people in all walks of life. Saturn wants to build lasting dreams with Pisces who wants the best for all beings! Mars wants people to feel safe and comfortable, have energy to live a potent life! Saturn and Neptune want that too! So Mars’ struggle only inspires them all! They want the best for him. They will come through like shining stars! 

Saturn in Capricorn has recently turned Direct, forward and is closing the gap to its conjunction with Pluto Jan 12, 2020 – only 5 degrees to go! Saturn traveling with Pluto in Capricorn has been and continues to carry some serious weight this year. There are karmic conditions that need righting, forgiving. Old fears need to be released, power used correctly. Dharma, the work of the Soul, is the replacement. Take responsibility, stay steadfastly on mission, rebuild, upgrade. Meet your tests, give gratitude, have a workable humility. Be clean and kind in your authority. Stay aware of the time frame, priorities. The final November 8 Saturn sextile Neptune will help make Neptune’s dreams come true. Trust your intuition, remember the long range needs of our Mother Earth – all her peoples, plants and creatures. Collaborate. Keep your dreams in mind.

Fixed Star Fomalhaut! The four stars, Aldebaran, Regulus, Antares, Fomalhaut, are the brightest stars in their constellations and among the 25–brightest stars in the night sky. The Persians considered these stars to be the four guardians of the heavens. In 3000 B.C., when as the Watcher of the South, Fomalhaut marked Winter Solstice. Fomalhaut is Archangel Gabriel, the human. Fomalhaut is in constellation Piscis Austrinus (not Pisces) at the foot of Aquarius, at 3 Pisces 52. It is in service to Humanity. And in this case, is most favorably in trine with our New Moon! Dark Star Astrology says ‘Rather like Neptune, it can be magical and highly spiritual or just a no good, unscrupulous drunk. All the royal stars have the capability for glory, honor, riches, and fame, but they also have the greatest height to fall from. Their incredible power must be used wisely and with integrity.’ With Scorpio it creates a longing for clean choices, dreams to come true.

In a bigger sense, Scorpio is hosting the biggest aspect of this current time! Jupiter has remained closely in square with Neptune since Dec 28, 2018 and just made the third and last square during Virgo on Sep 21. The first square was the first aspect of 2019 on Jan 13! In companion aspects, retrograde, Jupiter squared and Saturn sextiled Neptune June 16 and 18. Jupiter made this last square well before Saturn makes its last sextile Nov 8. Jupiter has brought some colossal misunderstandings and has questioned and revealed the truth of some of our beliefs and plans. Saturn makes the final decisions in view of possible consequences. For almost a year there have been reconsiderations and trials. Their 11 month cycle finishes within days of the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Eclipse and sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center, an uncommon pairing.  See more about Jupiter Square Neptune!   Saturn sextile Neptune!   

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along in their semisextile. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey together in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 


More about the Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

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 eleven months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects finish Nov 8, 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 prepped with demolition, Jupiter 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.

Neptune is now at 16 degrees, tuned to the Ecliptic and the June events, will be connected with Transit of Mercury! Pluto is now at 20 Capricorn close to the 22/23 degree events

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet Capricorn stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! 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! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. 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 to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected to these world events. 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, grow. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Thank you, Scorpios, for holding us strong during these two super events, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center during your Scorpio Mercury Retrograde!

Taurus – Scorpio Full Beaver Moon! 

November Tuesday the 12th at 5:34 AM Pacific, 19 Taurus/Scorpio 52

Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse! SIX Planet Earth and Water, Sextiles and Trines Bow Pattern! Fixed Star Castor.

2019 Scorpio Full Beaver Moon As Above So Below Transit of Mercury

With firm stance, be a channel for this Full Moon and the Transit of Mercury Eclipse! The Etheric Energy of yesterday’s Transit of Mercury is still very present. Moon in Taurus is holding the thread. This is doable for many of us per the exact time of day because the Full Moon is early morning, 5:34 AM Pacific. For some that will be Moonset! What a greeting for the day!

This Full Moon is important because it is the day after the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse! Information received yesterday is now being grounded and anchored in Taurus and given full perusal in Scorpio.

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart!It will then be used now through when Mercury’s sister aspect happens Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! The event is already strong with Jupiter only one degree away! It happens every 12 years, but not at the same time as the Transit of Mercury like this one!!!

The Jupiter/GC event is during Mercury in Scorpio Retrograde STATION! Mercury ‘turns’ forward the NEXT DAY, Nov 20 at 11:12 AM Pacific! Mercury Stations are an 8 day period ‘standing’ still, attuned, fully absorbing. It focuses, lets no motion distract it. There is a potent stillness, especially in ‘fixed’ sign Scorpio. Scorpio is perhaps the most deeply rooted and still of all the zodiac signs. They can be so still as to be not only invisible, but not to be ‘felt’ when in that condition! They are 100% receptive. They don’t miss a thing and have tremendous capacity. Scorpio is a keen deep seeker, so every particle will be noticed and plumbed, anchored in their being. It’s purpose is to heal so we may have union. The Phoenix rises from the Kundalini of its own ashes, the fertilizer of the past. It rises, unfettered, to the occasion. That is intense to experience or witness. As this release is slowly happening while in station, Mercury will soon again be going forward, gathering momentum, releasing the secrets of its findings!


At 19 Taurus/Scorpio 52, this Full Moon is part of the amazing sequence of world events we have been having, particularly the late 18 degree events. Not only is it the day after the Transit of Mercury, but it is less than a degree from where it happened! Those of you who can read charts can see how close they are by comparing these two charts.   

Mercury is known as the Messenger of God. He is always within 28 degrees of Sun. He carries the word of ‘God’, Sun, Sol, Soul, the word of the Light of Life. It is a profound association, often not realized that communication is a divine privilege. We think of chit chat, gossip, people who talk nonstop, not realizing that listening is the other half of communication, or maybe they are too scared to listen. Think first. Communicate with yourself. Uplevel your message, know why you are speaking and why to that person. Stay with your priority, what you hope to accomplish. Time may be short and our needs vital.

Scorpio 2019 Full Beaver Moon Astrology Chart!SIX Planet Earth and Water, Sextiles and Trines Bow Pattern! See the red lines across the chart from 1 to 7 linked by all those green lines?! Mercury, Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus are successfully strongly tied with Saturn and Pluto and Neptune. Now Saturn and Pluto are only 5 degrees apart waiting to make their Jan 12 conjunction
  • Mercury retrograde will make his sextile with Father Time, Saturn, in just over 24 hours at 6:35 AM Pacific on the 13th. They are documenting this historic event. Mercury communicates Saturn’s wanting integrity of staying true to the goal, building a better world.
  • Sun sextiles Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Saturn’s sign Capricorn, 9:56 AM Pacific on the 13th. There should be some results by then. Looking Life straight in the eye will do best. Funding may be given, fortunes may be made, particularly in businesses involving aging, conservation of fuels, plumbing, medical research/cures, renovations, clean up of pollution, micro features.
  • Moon has just trined Saturn, of her opposite sign, and is in imminent trine with Pluto. She resonates with patterns and divine order. Moon in Taurus has environmental concerns, wants a clean organic life – soil, water and air. She asks expert Pluto what would do that job well with the least harm and the best healing to Nature. Since we are right after the Transit of Mercury there may be some amazing information that simply ‘appears’ in our minds. Our frame of mind may shift. New ideas forming will suddenly seem like possibilities to put in progress! 
  • Moon and Sun have just gone by a sextile and trine with Neptune in Pisces, the Master of the Sea in his own sign! All three of them are psychic, Neptune the dreamer, visionary. Neptune reveals flaws, fears, addictions that cover conditions we can’t cope with at a given time. With the help of Father Sun in detox Scorpio and Mother Moon in Taurus of endless patience and persistence, changing our patterns of consumption, we may be able to stay strong and steady. Neptune helps us with getting clarity about our gifts. Neptune makes music, renders art to touch your Soul, shows us the Angels. Human help and spiritual help together often make the difference. Our beliefs shift; we come to understand we are not alone. A ‘mission’ may come to light, a mission that is bigger than our personal troubles and we have reason to live and live well. Saltwater is a definite cure.  

Venus is not in that Bow Pattern. She is in Sagittarius, square Neptune. She may be a little pushy for his taste, questioning his beliefs in the guise of looking for the Truth. He may accommodate her for a while, but come to be tired and lapse into an altered state, LOL, kinda rains on her parade! She is sad not be able to query him further and takes off to further uncharted territory. He may remain in thoughtful awareness, stirred by her inquiry. She had a quaint little way about her, those flowers in her hair, that adorable little smile, a lilt that captured his attention. 

As if in sympathy with all those sextiles, Mars is sextile Jupiter! Scorpio, Capricorn and Neptune aren’t always so cheerful even when in positive aspects like sextiles and trines. They simply have their own natures. Scorpio was built to be suspicious, good detectives. Capricorn is skeptical and untrusting until you prove yourself. Pisces can imagine the worst – great for writing suspense stories, making movies! Mars has no such troubles! He is ahead of the game, leading the fray, enjoying the battle! Why worry, life is gonna happen anyway?! In Libra he knows he can dance right through. He’s quick and has some agile allies! Jupiter knows the escape route, can ‘see’ ahead and it’s fun! It’s a race, so place your bets! Mars in Libra loves making new connections, especially in the world of beauty. At your side, he will fight for your rights. Jupiter is the professor and makes sure you have the full perspective. He’s the planner and lives for new territory! Mars may not sit still long, but he’s a quick learner on his feet! Nothing like a Full Moon to spread your wings! Next!

As with the Oct 13 Aries/Libra Full Moon, the Fixed Star Castor plays a part. Moon and Sun are favorably sextile/trine Castor at 20 Cancer 14 – that’s only 23″ apart! Castor is one of the two rival brothers of the constellation (not sign) Gemini, Castor mortal, Pollux immortal. Robson says ‘Castor, the mortal one of the twins, is famous for his skill in taming and managing horses. Sometimes called Apollo [Sun god], and symbolically named A Ruler yet to Come. Has an interest in the occult. Dr Eric Morse: Castor is also noted in natal astrology for proneness to mental breakdowns and neurotic distress. People with this star prominent and well aspected (as these are) are exceptionally gifted intellectually. Where these geniuses often need help is in not letting their concern for others go ‘over the top’. And modern researcher Elsbeth Ebertin…Linked with the Moon or Mercury, it has the effect of such people being blessed with a good nature and fine morals. It is also supposed to convey refined manners. See more by UK astrologer Deborah Houlding. She says it’s all about the ‘quest for divine immortality!’

Mercury Retrograde 2019 Scorpio Snake River Tetons

An S curve (‘retrograde’) along the mighty Snake River! Exceptional image of the Snake River and the Grand Tetons by Vern Clevenger!

The Snake River is a major river of the greater Pacific Northwest region in the United States. At 1,078 miles long, it is the largest tributary of the Columbia River, in turn the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean. There are three water signs, Cancer – creeks, Scorpio – mighty rivers, Pisces – oceans of the world. Scorpio also rules reptiles and the hisssss factor, Snakes! And as the 8th sign, figure 8s, the Mobius loop!

Scorpio is big rivers that require a bridge to cross. I usually think of them as the freight and passenger carrying commercial rivers, like the Mississippi in the US, the Nile and Congo, the Amazon, China’s Yangtze, the largest river in Asia. In July 2019, Bangladesh’s top court granted all the country’s rivers the same legal rights as humans, same as New Zealand’s Whanganui River. Rivers are vital to life.

Some rivers are more gentle than others; there are dangerous rapids and magnificent views as we paddle slowly, maybe silently. Some have dramatic seasonal changes, dry or floods. There are areas of little or huge population concentrations at certain locations. Mercury in Scorpio enjoys solitude and intensity. Turnings will keep them engaged in maneuvering and wondering what’s next. They are scuba diving or paddleboarding for all they’re worth down the rapids!

The Mercury retrograde cycle offers a taste of three phases in its retrograde direction shifts. Those shifts bring visual changes as the planets progress with it. First, we’re on fresh ground, curious, Mercury views the possibilities. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view and the planets around us are moving to new positions, people are changing. Adjustments and revisions are made. Third and last is the part when Mercury turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We work toward resolution, establishment of successful new ground. We tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! We get three chances, thank goodness!

This is the last of 2019’s three predominantly water sign Retrograde cycles.

Phase 1 starts Oct 11 2019. Mercury retrogrades Halloween, Oct 31! He turns direct, forward Nov 20 and finishes the three phases Dec 7. It starts at 11 Scorpio 35, retrogrades at 27 Scorpio 28. Goes back to 11/35, turns forward to the peak position 27/28.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Scorpio concerns our deeper thoughts, the causes underlying our symptoms, our reasons for choosing to live. It too wants to communicate, like a therapist, healer shaman, to remove the pain under the crust of suffering. Sexuality, sexual organs and eliminatory matters may concern us. Obsessions and compulsions, extremes of behavior can be a challenge. Scorpio cares so deeply, till death do us part. Monies matter. Incorporating, merging funds can make so many more things possible. Scorpio is a super strong sign, can endure extremes, heals miraculously, practically comes back from death to renewed life!

Every Retrograde is unique! As time goes on, the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. This Retrograde is especially important because Saturn and Scorpio’s planet Pluto have been traveling along together and will conjunct not too long from now, Jan 12, 2020! What ‘soil’ we turn now will affect our thinking about how we want to manifest that conjunction in our own lives. See more

Most important are any major outer planetary combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Mercury makes during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, flavor the cycle. And, of course, the connections Mercury makes, or doesn’t, with your chart factor in personally! See your astrologer!

This time is super unique! There are THREE planetary events, two of them major, during the retrograde!

  • Nov 8 Saturn sextiles Neptune. This is the last of a six aspect set that started Jan 2019! Saturn wants to make Neptune’s dream come true, to harness Neptune visions, convert them to reality! See more!
  • Nov 11, eleven, eleven, is the Transit of Mercury retrograde eclipse! Mercury crosses the face of Sun, receiving a huge infusion from Sun, our local Star! The infusion comes in the form of LIGHT, enlightenment, if you will. Mercury himself will be lighted up, his ideas become brighter, the dross will be burned away. It will be an ultimate mindfulness! See more  Nov 12 Full Beaver Moon! 
  • Nov 19 is the amazing sister aspect, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center, the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, all the stars we know! Jupiter, our biggest planet, will do the job. In this case, the infusion is invisible to us, but is monumental nonetheless! It happens every 12 years, but coupled with the Transit of Mercury, this is a whole lot of STAR energy all at once! I think of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot as the third eye of our solar system, another Seer, perceiver, like Mercury. In fact they rule opposite signs, Gemini and Sagittarius. Jupiter is thought of as higher education, purpose and meaning, faith and trust in the future, our Path in life. An infusion here has great meaning. It happens when Mercury is in STATION – maximum absorption, and Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius, doubling the potency!! See more

    The Stations! A Station is the four days before and four days after Mercury turns directions, retrograde or forward/direct. It is a pause when Mercury literally appears to stand still in the sky for 8 days! Stations help us slow down, be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. Nov 19 is right in the eight day Mercury direct station, right before Mercury turns direct on the 20th!

Mercury makes three repeated aspects during its retrograde cycle.

  • Oct 13 it starts with sextile Saturn. Focused on sensible ideas, time well spent, consulting with professionals, the project is established. Rx Nov 13, last Nov 29.
  • Oct 15 Mercury trines Neptune! Believe it! Neptune has extraordinary insight and visions. Mercury puts the words to them and spreads the word. It’s logical and magical! Rx Nov 13, last Nov 28.
  • Oct 19 Mercury sextiles Pluto! Mercury takes a look into the power zone! It follows the money, finds out what’s deeply important – life or death, seeks crucial healing insights. Is it a mate or a merger? Rx Nov 9, last Dec 2.

In addition to the sky aspects, look in your own chart to see where 11 to 27 Scorpio fall, what house/s are involved. The matters of those houses are the place/s the Mercury in Scorpio retrograde will apply. Also check out how Scorpio sits in your chart – we all have Scorpio. When in the same or close degrees to that 11 – 27, it has challenge type connections with your factors in other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius, fire sign Aries, and air sign Gemini. Things go more smoothly with other water signs Cancer and Pisces, earth signs Virgo and Capricorn.

About Retrogrades!  

The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, they go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three, if outer planets sometime five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde is going ‘backward,’ they are ALL going forward! It’s illogical, but it happens. Mercury retrogrades 3 to 4 times a year. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 15% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! The good part is where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They keep up! The special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart. Check out your own chart and the charts of babies born during Mercury retrograde!

Whether doing Scorpio water sports or business, working with important water resources, restoring riparian habitat, what a journey! If you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward river bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward river bends extend our vision of potentials. Being with water shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations occur, new ideas are teased into action! Scorpio can feel clean again, refreshed. Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved.

Scorpio rules homes medical matters, renovations, plumbing, marriage/divorces/custody, wills, mortgages, loans, grants, corporations. If you must make arrangements during the Rx, review it after the cycle is finished and see if you still feel the same way. Wait to purchase that motorcycle, scuba gear, dive equipment, a water related item or vehicle or a  boat, super expensive wine or sunglasses. Get the insurance. Scorpio is an intimate sign. Likely better to wait to share secrets, have first time sex until at least the retrograde is over. Projects, certain alliances, or therapies may depend on confidentiality. Oh, and things lost previously are sometimes are found, or if lost this retrograde, are found during the next retrograde!

Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.

Mercury Retrograde Cancer Leo 2019 Trollstigen, Troll's Ladder Norway

Norway’s west coast – the Trollstigen Pass Road, Troll’s Ladder, famous with 11 hairpin bends! Thank goodness Mercury RXs have only two hairpins!

Some retrogrades are more dangerous than others. If you like fast driving like some Leos do, it’s by choice, exhilarating. Cancers prefer comfort rather than fear. They will be saving money driving the camper while the Leos are deliciously extravagantly in the convertible Jaguar or traveling in a humongous luxury motor home!

2019’s second of 3 retrogrades starts in Cancer, retrogrades in Leo – Mother Moon and Father Sun’s signs. It goes back into Cancer then into Leo for the final lap. Cancer might drive like their mothers, while Leo drives for the prize money! Well, this time we get a double drive in two signs. They will definitely feel different. The transition from one to the other may be the actual challenge. We are left in the sign of our Self, our own radiance, Leo, the sign of the Heart. They are lovers, creative, generous. They intend to be teachers, whether the musician in the spotlight or in the classroom. The Cancers will allow themselves a little more spice! All said and done, the Leos will be glad to go home and be fed. Showing off is hard work, LOL!

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking or driving magnificent mountain switchbacks, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations occur, new ideas teased into action! Cancers like the new stove; Leos like their new buggy.

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view and the planets around us are moving to new positions, people are changing. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when Mercury turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world!

Cancers need to build their courage. Paired with Leo ups the odds of bravery! Cancer, a cardinal get started sign, is a bit conservative, protecting home and hearth, but can be quick to get things moving when they make up their mind. Leos are what is called a fixed sign, accused of being stubborn, and they are full of Light, so people admire them. They get away with keeping the old show that has always worked before. But times do change. They need at least three times to take it in. Letting go of the good old times is tough. But show them better and they are good to go! They will tell you it was their idea. And it was! They thought it over and decided to accept it! Just give them a little time, a lot of appreciation, and they will be with you shortly!

Cancer matters include food, where and how you live, your family, how you are feeling these days. All the daily goods, clothing, how the car works, whether you have enough money, a job that you like. It can be corporate or at the local Ma & Pa. How the kids are doing, or your parents, are high on your list, if not the highest. Food availability may change, the house may need some immediate fixing during a retrograde, Rx. Your route to work shifts. The stock market goes up and down; you may decide to shift your investments, but know that they will shift again after the Rx. The family may go through some ups and downs, especially with a mother or daughter. A surprise pregnancy and then you aren’t? Wait to propose or choose a wedding date or place. The choice of a school may get strong priority, or whether to go at all. Studying. Where to live and with whom.

Mercury in Cancer is a bit at odds with itself. Mercury is logical; Cancer is intuitive. But Mercury helps Cancer put their experiences into words, explain what happened, tell what they ‘saw,’ have amazing recall or remember from long ago. Could be time to write a memoir, discuss feminine family mores, talk/listen with your teenage child, tell people what you have been wanting and why. Cancers sometimes don’t speak up for themselves because how can they tell us where they got those ideas? Parents told them to stop telling stories about imaginary playmates when they were little, yet they could have sold millions of their writings! As it is, being acutely aware of cycles, they are great stock traders, especially of commodities, life’s daily goods. A lot of famous people have Mercury in Cancer – it is their link to the people!

Leo is teenage time, becoming your full glorious Self! Love is always in their heart, from little children to oneself, a romantic relationship that may not result in marriage. Cancer has children, but sometimes Leos spend their life as a step parent teaching other people’s children, and/or at school. Leos are bigger than life and have the hair to prove it! Performance, on stage, or that grand car, their athletic prowess, showing their colors, are part of their fabric. They work hard to be the best. They have a natural attractive presence, a big smile, are generously spirited. You know when they walk in the room. Are they happy? This retrograde will sort out some of the answers. It’s grand to be admired, but are you loved? Do you have the money to support your lifestyle. Shall you accept that position of status or do you long to do what is in your heart? Is there some more learning to be done to make you feel good about your own expertise. Should you take over and open your own shop? It likely won’t be a finger snap, but you will get headed to what’s better for you. Could be a great stepping stone.

Mercury in Leo likes it there! Leo loves being brilliant and mesmerizing their audience! They have a lot to say anywhere, anytime, to anyone who will listen! They are inspirational and people really listen. Leo will tell them how they got started, from nothing to somewhere. They will offer help and connections, ideas. They use colorful phrases and their body language is vibrant, their hair gleams and their spirits soar. You can tell they are passionate and they want you to have the glow too! They are wizards at teaching. They urge you to do it your way, do what’s in your heart with your own natural talents and assets! Success! They are profound lovers and can tell you stories that make you cry then clap your hands for happy! Just go easy while Mercury is retrograde, LOL!

The Stations! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep. The Rx, turn back station is early at 4 Leo on July 7. It is the point furthest forward, a Leo preview of things possible to come! Four days before and after, we will mull over money, love, learning and giving, what’s in our heart to do. Mercury returns to Cancer July 19. Cancer sees what Leo has to offer, prepares for that potential. It sees what Leo needs to have stable support for his work and starts making adjustments so he won’t fail. The Direct, turn forward station is back at 23 Cancer 56 July 31. Four days before and after, Cancer will steady up matters at that point, making ready to embark on the journey to offer Leo what she can – cookies, cribs, her family’s expertise, the reservoirs of her extensive memory, plenty of hugs.

Look in your own chart to see where 23 Cancer to 4 Leo span, what house/s it is in. The matters of that/those houses are the place/s the Mercury Cancer/Leo apply to.

Mercury itself is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted, yet intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved. In this case, Cancer rules homes, so you might wait to buy/sell a home. Leos might wait to buy a luxury car. Oh, and things get lost, sometimes found at the next retrograde! Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Aspects formed during Mercury in Cancer/Leo Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are only 3 and they each are formed only once.

  1. July 8 Mercury retrograde in Leo station conjuncts mighty Mars! Three days before, three days after! Could win the award, even several! Great show, grand performance, great race! Take your mind for a walk! See what is special about the love you see in action, how first responders save the day – an accident, a fire, a weather disaster, a lost pet, a heroic wilderness rescue. How are you the hero of your own life?! The heart we have is so very special. Love is beyond understanding at times. It’s sacred, reverent, almost hurts! The love for a child, the teacher for her students, precious performances as we learn to sing or make music, fresh starts taking pure courage, the 75 year marriage, an elder person holding our hand as they leave this dimension. We are phenomenal creatures. Superb leadership will always be in Love, a cat with nine lives!
  2. July 24 Mercury retrograde in Cancer conjuncts delectable Venus! Tasty, but don’t expect the meal to be precisely what you ordered, or the recipe to work out perfectly. Could be better the way it happens! No proposals with this one. A profession of love maybe, but it’s not likely to be a permanent thing you hoped for or would like long term. Still can be sweet. Give appreciations. If you are an artist, play with your medium, your colors. See if there is a message in your work. Write some music. Talk with your family, but expect everything to change. It’s not a time of stability; let go of expectations. Shift your thinking into exploration mode. Venus and Cancer are both feminine, so call a woman you haven’t spoken with for a while. Take a good look at your kitchen and the food you eat. See if you can do some updating so your meals are easier and more to your liking. Revise your diet a tad. If you have any doubts about your health, consider who you would like to see about that. If it’s cosmetic or not urgent, do wait until Mercury goes direct. You may have some good ideas about financial matters. See your astrologer for your best times.
  3. August 16 Mercury in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus! This aspect is exact the day after the whole retrograde cycle ends, but will be in effect the 14th and 15th. Be careful. Mercury gets impatient and Uranus can be fast while Taurus gets in your way. Just when you thought you passed them, they pass you, again, speeding! Maybe just get off the road and wait for a while or take another route. Better than getting in an accident or stuck in traffic brought to a standstill because they did. Be careful when you are backing up. Now, Mercury is a clever planet, and Leo has so much light he sees what others can’t! Uranus is impressed by this unusual phenomena, so may be very curious about it. It won’t be normal business. Either there will be a breakthrough or no amount of communicating will get the job done. Leo feels darn bad when they can’t do it. Or Uranus may miss the fact that Leo, though flamboyant at times, self-aggrandizing in manner, usually really wants to share something valuable. It may be just Leo’s style or he’s a bit unsure, so covers with distracting behavior. Try to listen to what is being said, versus how it’s said. Leo and Uranus are kinda opposite because Uranus is the planet of Leo’s opposite, Aquarius. Just stand a little further apart. This can be done – carefully. If Uranus pulls back too much it looks like he doesn’t care; Leo will pack up and leave thinking Uranus isn’t interested. Keep eye contact and tell Leo you are wanting to hear the rest.

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

NASA image of the Galactic Center

Sep 23 Equinox Note! How did this happen?! All of a sudden we are really close to the Transit of Mercury retrograde eclipse and its sister aspect Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! These are both important events, transmissions from our own Star, the Sun, and our entire Galaxy of stars!

The first ten months of 2019 Neptune has been being prepared for the sister events, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! He has been activated SIX times, three by Jupiter’s challenging viewpoints. Neptune is stirred, no longer laying still. He may be on his feet like a Thich Nhat Hanh walking meditation or sitting in a dynamic meditation. For now he needs to be in a healthy awake, alert on duty condition. And there are three activations by Saturn, doing on-the-ground testing the principles Jupiter and Neptune have pondered getting the kinks out to let it all flow smoothly. Neptune is a planet of being infinitely, delicately, richly  sensitive, a giant receptor. In some ways it is indiscriminate and that is good when a transmission of this solar magnitude comes through. Neptune doesn’t block any part of it; it comes through whole. Mercury rules Gemini, information, data, and Virgo analysis. Neptune rules the sign opposite Virgo, Pisces. It’s important not to judge, or try to make order of it, but just see it as it is, an order we aren’t yet used to. It must be untampered with so the original is protected intact. This Transit event will last hours, so Mercury and Neptune have to be strong. It will take months and years, maybe a lifetime, to understand in fullness.

The June 16, 17 and 18 events are particularly important since the 16 and 18 events are at the 18th degree, the one that links Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit of Mercury. The Full Moon on the 17th at 25 Sagittarius also acts as a receptor.

The Oct 30, 2018 248 year Pluto at the Ecliptic is linked to the Transit of Mercury Eclipse by degree. The Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center are only 8 days apart, Nov 11 and 19, 2019! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path and Mercury crosses the face of the Sun, both infused with the major Light, SOLAR light of our Solar system! Jupiter, Mercury’s ‘opposite’ planet (Mercury of Gemini opposite Jupiter of Sagittarius, now IN Sagittarius), is a BIG planet being infused with GALACTIC LIGHT – 200+ billions of Suns! Jupiter is a lucky charm that enhances where it is. We will feel fortunate and optimistic about what we receive. Jupiter will be wearing his regal cloak while we all make plans what to do!

Nov 11 Mercury is charged up, radiant with super information! It’s communication fibers have been seared clean, and are eminently more capable of pure transmission. Mercury speaks with power of the most important matters, is brilliant with more channels! It must be so, because it will also be the neighborhood channel of Jupiter’s galactic encounter! Jupiter will teach life changing insights of planetary importance far and wide. Perspectives will shift immensely. Mercury will step down some of the information to the average citizen. Did you hear about…..?! Data will be gathered to see how the citizens are taking it all, and that will be taken back to ‘Central’ to see what needs to be released next, to whom, and how. Ok, back to the beginning…

The Moon crosses the Galactic Center 12 to 13 times a year, the Sun once a year. Jupiter crosses it every 12 years while in its own sign Sagittarius, the host sign of the Galactic Center! Jupiter will get very close to it April 2019 when it goes stationary retrograde at 25 Sag, and then the doors are wide open at the exact conjunction about 7 AM Pacific November 19 2019 at 27 Sag 07!

Per the Cosmic Intelligence Agency (chuckle): The Galactic Center is the point around which our whole galaxy, The Milky Way turns. It was discovered in Feb 1974, fittingly with the [Moon’s] North Node at 27° Sagittarius and Saturn at the South Node. The Galactic Center moves like a fixed star at the rate of precession through the zodiac at 1° every 72 years, forward in the tropical zodiac (as the Aries point moves backward) and is currently [was] at 26°59′ Sagittarius. At this Center is a super massive black hole [4 light years wide], a galactic gravitational Center, a huge cosmic womb of sorts. What we know of black holes is that they are massive forces of energy sucking in everything around them, yet full of power, potential and creation. The core and key of the birth of the galaxy itself. It is as big as 4 million suns. It is 25,000 light years away. To give you an idea of how far away that is, Alpha Centauri our closest star is 4.3 light years away, with mega giant star Betelgeuse 642 light years away.

The 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic, and 2019’s Mercury across the face of the Sun – Transit of Mercury, are strictly local by comparison! Both are related to our one Sun, whereas the GC is the center of 200+ billions of star systems! Yet, by closeness of dates and degrees, the Transit of Mercury Nov 11, eleven, eleven, and Jupiter at the GC Nov 19 are very much related, virtually happening together! At the Transit, Jupiter is at 25 degrees Sag, less than two degrees of the GC conjunction. The Transit of Mercury Eclipse is closely linked with the Ecliptic event and the GC event! It is perhaps pivotal between them. It is the observer of the year following the Ecliptic event, transmits to the Sun and the Sun to him, then Jupiter is the go between of Earth and the Galaxy! Mercury is considered the neighborhood planet, where Jupiter, his ‘opposite’ planet, is the traveler spreading the good word far and wide, giving meaning to Mercury’s data and incorporating it in his big plans! This is a BIG party!

It feels like you have the whole Galaxy at your fingertips! You reach out so far you can forget where you came from! And it doesn’t matter. You just be the best you can be everywhere you are. The Galactic Center, GC, is a monumental point of infusion of collected Light of all the stars, not just our Galaxy but other star systems as well. Open your mind and Spirit as much as you possibly can. Don’t bother about articulating or judging it; absorb it. You can sort it out later. If you, as one person, want to be heard, when there are events at this point in the zodiac, be sure to vote! We are heard collectively. Humanity progresses as it can; joining up with the Galactic Beings can boost the process.

Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center Astrology Chart!
(The GC is right where Jupiter, the planet that looks like an open orange 4 is.)

2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center 27 Sagittarius 07 Astrology Chart!

The Jupiter/GC event is during Mercury in Scorpio Retrograde STATION! It ‘turns’ forward the NEXT DAY, Nov 20 at 11:12 AM Pacific! Retrograde Stations are an 8 day period ‘standing’ still, attuned, fully absorbing. It focuses, lets no motion distract it. There is a potent stillness, especially in ‘fixed’ sign Scorpio. Scorpio is perhaps the most deeply rooted and still of all the zodiac signs. They can be so still as to be not only invisible, but not be ‘felt’ when in that condition! They are 100% receptive. They don’t miss a thing and have tremendous capacity. Scorpio is a keen deep seeker, so every particle will be noticed and plumbed, anchored in their being. It’s purpose is to heal so we may have union. The Phoenix rises from the Kundalini of its own ashes, the fertilizer of the past. It rises, unfettered, to the occasion. That is intense to experience or witness. As this release is slowly happening while in station, Mercury will soon again be going forward, gathering momentum, releasing the secrets of its findings!

Trines can be like greased lightning! There won’t be any trouble with these transmissions! See all those blue lines?! There is a Grand Water Trine –  grand because a complete triangle is formed! We also have a super fire trine! Mercury in Scorpio is in the intuitive Grand Water Trine with Neptune in its own sign Pisces, the psychic of the Soul, the Sensitive, Dreamer. Mercury may try to analyze, can’t help it, but Neptune will keep the priority on the highest spiritual matters. They are accompanied by the Moon’s North Node seeking the best of the future in Moon’s own sign Cancer.

And who is in the fabulous Fire Trine?! JUPITER, a fire planet, the very planet of the Galactic Center! Venus is right near him, coming to give her blessing! And bountiful it is because she is in Sagittarius too! They are gold medal splendid together! Moon and Part of Fortune in Leo, sign of Love, Heart and solar Light, are trining them! Moon is happily center stage and applauding as well! She makes us feel how connected we all are, how generous we can be. We can get tears in our eyes. In her nurturing spirit she helps present the benefit event of all benefit events! There are none to compare! It may be melodramatic, but it only makes the point. Fire signs represent Spirit, inspiration, initiation, exuberance, leadership! Sag and Leo are both teaching signs. Perfect for the job ahead.

Yes, there are some challenges. The most organic is the classic male/female at odds Moon square Sun. Moon wants her way in Leo. Scorpio Sun says none of your business, and may be pressed to give Leo the support for the luxuries she knows she deserves. In the kindliest sense she may warm his heart, dote on him and he is secretly pleased, and melts a little bit. She needs to know not everything is about her. He cares so much. She sees him anonymously help others and respects him, is proud of him. In this case, they need to surrender selfishness and unspoken fears, to the greater Galactic business of Souls and the Planet. The Venus/Jupiter Moon/Part of Fortune fire trine will likely save the day!

Mars opposite Uranus could be a little kinky and hazardous. Mars in Scorp always thinks he has 9 lives, but why waste time in repeated recoveries of rocking the boat just a little too far? Enjoy the wild but stay steady with some down to earth friends. Listen to them.

The big challenge may involve Jupiter himself! He is out of sign square Chiron! They are coming to meet each other since Chiron is retrograde. Since Jupiter is at the end of Sag, and Chiron is at the beginning of Aries, they are both in fire signs at the time of the Galactic infusion. Later, Dec 8, when Jupiter is in Capricorn, it will square Chiron by signs that aren’t compatible. For now, Jupiter is maturing, enjoying his culmination in Sag. He’s happy to frolic with Chiron and is especially interested in new healing methods! Chiron is on hand for any help Jupiter may need. It’s not every day you have a Galactic encounter for real! Anything could happen! See more about the Dec 8 square.

So how long is Jupiter at the Galactic Center? Astrologers vary a lot in their rules about things like this. For such an exotic event they might allow a 1 degree before and after range. Since Jupiter is a slow moving outer planet, that would give it from Nov 14 to the 24th, 10 days. If a 5 degree range were allowed, the astrologer might allow 5 degrees ahead of the exact date and only, say, 3 degrees following, saying the energy would be dissipating after the exact event. That would then be Oct 25 to Dec 3, 39 days. Another astrologer might say that as soon as Jupiter changes signs Dec 2, that’s the end of it. But, as Mercury takes hours to cross the face of the Sun, how long might it take Jupiter to cross the Galactic Center so far, far away?! Is distance important to factor in? No. Pluto, our furthest most small planet, has tremendous potency many of us have lived! The Galactic Center itself moves only a degree every 72 years… I’m inclined to give it the 10 day timing that correlates with the Mercury 8 day station discussed above. But we are each so different in our ‘radar.’ When you feel it, is when it is true for you for sure, but we all know certain things come upon us so slowly we don’t realize it at first…give it some room, be open and alert.

The 2018 Pluto Ecliptic, the 2019 10 months of Jupiter/Saturn to Neptune combination, November’s Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center are all bringing us up to speed for Saturn conjunct Pluto Jan 12, 2020 and The Crown Mar 21, 2020! It is a long and powerful sequence! Stay steady in the Light.

Those of you born Nov 17, 18, 19, 20 are potently connected with the Galactic Center by birthright, always tuned to its frequency. You are lifelong channels for the rest of us. Some of you are conscious of this connection, for others it is yet to be discovered. The rest of us, with chart factors at 26, 27 and 28 degrees of any sign, don’t forget your midpoints, are connected as well. We each receive, translate and disseminate information from the skills our own signs – all of us components of the whole cosmic web.

2019 Scorpio Full Beaver Moon As Above So Below Transit of Mercury

Around 7 AM Pacific the 19th, with firm stance, be a channel for these profound energies! Without judgement I ask you to engage, receive, anchor these energies in their purity. Blessed be.

Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

An epic coastal curvy view along California’s Big Sur at Bixby Bridge, Big Sur Creek.

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of the three of 2019! All three involve water signs. In the Annual Newsletter I wrote: Pisces, the sign of the magnificent oceans, magic and the Great Mystery! From addicts to saviors, muddlement to acute insight and psychic accuracy. Being lost, to dedication forever led by celestial music.  

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking mountain switchbacks or driving a small zig zag road along a ragged coastline, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inner bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch.

Uniquely, this Mercury Rx 3 part cycle is tied with two outer planet sign changes! It starts Feb 18, the first day of Pisces 2019, the day Chiron goes into Aries its final time, the day before the Full Snow SuperMoon! Mercury starts Retrograde March 5, the day before Uranus goes into Taurus! Chiron’s change happens every 51 years, while Uranus is on an 84 year cycle! These are significant changes.

Chiron has been in Pisces, so Mercury’s job is to keep that Pisces healing in our minds, the spiritual component of us present, while this shift is in progress. The starting point is 16 Pisces. Mercury will go forward to 29 Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the zodiac! It will turn, Retrograde there March 5, and go back to 16 Pisces on March 28. It turns forward, Direct, then, covering the same degrees the third time, completing the entire cycle April 16!

Since this focus in Pisces starts on the day Chiron goes into Aries, leaving Pisces, it seems we are not to forget those last degrees in Pisces. Chiron is going forward, and Aries is the sign of fresh and new! It’s easy to jump into the new excitement. Mercury will be like an archive of insights, will keep Chiron’s tools at hand and offer them up when needed. Mercury is generally logical. In Pisces it’s less fettered by logic and quickly responds without necessarily thinking. You learn to trust your instincts more while it’s in Pisces. That will be most helpful while Chiron is on new ground, now an Aries first responder type!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when it turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep.

Retrogrades can be in two signs. This one is in Pisces. We all have Pisces in our charts, so take note where Pisces is for you. Mercury is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted/intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get copies, save and backup.

Mercury Rx specific to Pisces. Specific? Pisces doesn’t usually do specific, but, when psychic, they can be deadly accurate! However, Pisces stuff can include changing the music, the date for the meditation event, gallery location. Pisces is the new sound machine and lighting. The cruise is cancelled or you change the itinerary. Insurance benefits, interest rates may change. You fall out of love with your belief system, and in a few days the new one isn’t for you either. Your schedule is forgotten when the surf’s up. Be sure to get receipts (not a Pisces thing) for the new wetsuit or snorkel gear, surfboard, sail. Shipbuilding materials will become unavailable or a different choice made. Your definition of beauty becomes less common, more ethereal. Art you like today becomes passe tomorrow.

How to fix the film, get the seafood for the restaurant, where to go to meditate? What is your Spiritual standing, what are your beliefs? Which water gear to buy, which boat, seaside motel? Should I be a lifeguard, scuba or surf instructor? Do I really believe that vision? What about all that debris in the ocean, what technique or organization can take of that? Save the whales, dolphins, orcas? Help the homeless or invest in coastal real estate? And we haven’t talked about climate change, rising water temps and heights. There is so much to be done. Maybe you will find some answers during this Retrograde.

Pisces will make music, take you to a magical place, sell you fresh fish, buy you a surfboard. They will meditate with you, make films, help you disappear, save your life from invisible pathogens. Thinking can bring drinking. At worst they will be the helpless hopeless victim/martyr addict, sinners. At best they are the most compassionate Angel you ever met, one of God’s own miracles. Keep connected with your sponsor; get help right away. Some things are hard to do alone. The rest of us are mushing around in the middle wanting, praying, to be a better person.

Pisces is more than the apparent physical events. It’s the sign of Spirit, of Holy Union, Beingness, Soul. In these often uncommon zones, there is illusion since we can’t see in the way we always have. We sense presence. We get lost, scared, even lonely. We think we are lost  because we just don’t ‘know’ anymore or for awhile. Wait, concentrate on awareness, how you feel. There can be confusion that takes us from our standard responses, opens us to other possibilities on new ground. It really is ok not to know. It is a useful state of consciousness that helps us to contemplate new concepts, adjust to their existence, add the facet of them that is our part to carry! But don’t expect them to remain the same as we grow with them each day! Pisces if the sign of Morph! Evolution is a living thing. Let yourself be free to ooze on into the future. Creation can be violent as a tsunami, watching a becalmed glassy sea, elegant, humble, always intriguing and magical! It can be comprehensible, or something we merge with that we surrender too and just go with it until we understand if we ever do. It can happen in a fraction of a second. Might take aeons to perfect.

Mercury is naturally connected with Gemini airy mind and Virgo daily earth services, both logical signs. In Pisces, Mercury is in the sign opposite Virgo. Virgo administers the meds very carefully, does accounting, writes cleverly, is a consummate craftsperson that is renowned for excellent technique and detail. Pisces is tuned to subtle details, a shift in the air. They go by what they feel and dream. Mercury wanders in this sign. Many things don’t matter so much as in ordinary daily thinking. Their attention floats, picking up nuances, tones, whispers, imagination. What does matter is how you succeed as a human with compassion, loving kindness, encourage others to believe in themselves. Mercury Rx here drifts among us, making assessments, seeing what needs doing, how it can be done – often so subtly no one knows you were there. Change seemingly comes from out of the blue… Ideas may be put into sound, art, an illustration, image, an imaginary story.

In Pisces, Mercury squares Gemini. Gemini is known for flitting like a butterfly from flower to flower. Some disrespect that ability; gardeners are grateful their veggie plants get pollinated! Gemini is the vital human to human connections, siblings, neighbors. Pisces is human to Soul, God, Spirit. Both of them are seeking quality connections. A square challenge here is the difference of mediums. Gemini is airy, logical; Pisces is watery, mysty. Gemini can’t see through the mist. Pisces doesn’t function literally/linearly. It takes a wee bit of time for them each to adjust to the other’s modality. Each senses the other has importance, so get frustrated when it isn’t easy at first. Go easy, take it a bit at a time.

Aspects formed 3 times during Mercury Pisces Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are four! Foremost is the lead aspect of the Retrograde cycle, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s own planet! It started the whole cycle on its beginning day Feb 18! Mercury is usually quite a talker, but in Pisces may spend more than usual time listening, absorbing, feeling, even just wandering, observing. Rather than link to link reporting, there may be a standing back, getting a more comprehensive account of what is seen. Neptune is not always so easy to instantly label. He may be enjoying that space deliberately, or simply be his sometimes shy nature that prefers quiet solitude. That is not usually Mercury’s perch. There are many mysteries to explore, unravel, and that makes Mercury more curious than ever. Fascinating challenge. There is much Neptune would love to have more people know about and understand. Mercury is good at articulating visions and ideas so the average person can get it! Neptune’s visions are important, not to be lost in dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception.

Mercury sextiles both planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto! This is a total switch from Neptune. Capricorn is the hard core last earth sign, sign of stones, ice, glass, concrete! Saturn is his own planet, and Pluto is not to be messed with! You better make sense, have your links in a row, be able to stand up under questioning. Sextiles offer opportunities. If Mercury looks credible, perhaps intuitive Pisces will bring him through by hitting the precise mark Saturn and Pluto are looking for. There is a deeper part of each of them that is wanting much more than money. But it’s good to start by mixing both parts of your proposition together, preferably how one part can pay for the other! They might need you to do some advertising for them. The job might be small, but some potent words and placement could make all the difference in their business. Or it could be a huge job and you think twice about taking it on. Take a deep breath and see what you can do. Remember, Mercury type efforts most go awry during Mercury Retrograde. Even though this is a positive sextile, I would way over estimate your fee. This time it is better to go by the hour than by the job. The client themselves are likely to change horses midstream and it’s their choice, not yours. So the positive here is you get more hours. Put the agreed on hourly fee in your contract and everybody sign it. They could request you do some researching. That definitely needs to be paid time too.

Mercury squares Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius. That is often not so tough, but can be when it is! Mercury can talk too much, making Jupiter crazy when he’s focused in a certain direction. They can chat too much and not get the job done. In Pisces it can be confusing and Jupiter has big imagination, so they may need to just back up and start over though the cat is already out of the bag. Both are story tellers, Mercury short, Jupiter long. Might not pay for Mercury to try to publish Jupiter’s book right now. Not the best time to make travel decisions or school/instructor decisions. Truth itself is questioned. Both planets and signs can be naive at times. Scams are afoot; guard your friends. Be careful about libel. Clarify right away. Faith is overwhelmed by distracting questions. But. If Jupiter is right on, and not being recognized, Mercury could come up with a breakthrough channel to the core and put Jupiter on the map, finally credited as he should be! Jupiter can be out in the boonies of philosophy while Mercury is right here in town getting the word out, sell, sell, selling! In Pisces?! Sure! When he believes because he has ‘seen,’ he can be inspiring and invincible!

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

Uranus is Mercury’s wild card friend. They are each communicators – Mercury mind, Uranus genius. Mercury is enthralled with the amazing array of ideas Uranus concocts out of thin air! He knows he’s hearing only the half of it. Volumes are communicated on into dawn! Mercury has a million questions! Uranus can uplift the perspective, sometimes bringing Mercury to the height of perception! Uranus is challenged to satisfy this psychically insightful questioner! Uranus has been closely tied with Chiron the entire time Chiron was traversing Pisces! They have each taken on a bit of the other, a camaraderie has been established. So Mercury in Pisces is more easy with Uranus than when Mercury was in other signs. Mercury instinctually realizes this may be the chance of a lifetime!

On the other hand, Uranus has more patience in Taurus, but he is still way ahead of Mercury and at times may get bored quickly with Mercury chatter, no matter how clever it is. Might be good to connect several different times for less time. Mercury can find Taurus a little slow for his taste, yet he can be surprised by Taurus when one of those awesome things Taurus has been thinking about suddenly is complete and pops up! And a terrific idea it is, all the details worked out! So Mercury continues to check in. Mercury finds himself thinking on a larger scale and is alert to how to get more people on board. See more about the Uranus sign change

Pisces has mixed feelings about Uranus. He knows Uranus can disturb the valence at the drop of a hat. Uranus brings quakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, lightning shocks. Pisces can be excited at the time, aware of nature’s own magnificent terrifying cycles, and also be in great mourning for the destruction, loss of life. Change on this scale can clear the way for many people at once, to forge a new life more powerful than what was, up to date, a better chance to deal with climate change effectively. Pisces, so aware of suffering, is glad some of that old suffering is over. Uranus is the planet of being ahead of its time. People find themselves inventing new systems for better living for themselves and our planet.

Uranus going into Taurus is comfortable for Pisces. Taurus is restful, steady, gentle, usually kindly. Pisces can be easily frightened, so these slower moves are a relief. There is time to take a look, get acquainted. Uranus is the humanitarian inventor, not so concerned with local matters unless his work is about them. Just know that your changes at a local level can be applied to many small regions or be micro models that can be applied to larger regions!

Pisces 2019 Celestial HighLights

Pisces ~ We need a Revolution and it starts with Falling in Love with the Earth  

Pisces Boy Shell Communion Gregory Colbert

So says UpliftConnect.com This image is by famed filmmaker and photographer Gregory Colbert, the Creator of Ashes and Snow. As of 2010, Ashes and Snow attracted over 10 million visitors, making it the most attended exhibition by a living artist in history. In Venice…

Communion is a colossal word. It’s a form of Grace. We merge, we share. It may be here before our eyes, or the awareness of a profound presence. It may be holy or desecrated. It is a form of phychism that tunes us to save another from their pain, or make us run for our lives and save ourselves. It becomes loving kindness beyond words. It’s a form of blessingway. Some are born to it, others of us are working on it, others are yet to have the experience.

Pisces brings us the gift of Understanding. It’s a stepping stone to Communion. When we understand, we can forgive and let go. When others understand us, we feel acknowledged, sometimes validated. This precious connection encourages us all, both giver and receiver, to continue to live, in harmony, with our fellow beings. Our Spirits are enhanced to do the love work of the world, to learn, to heal. When we feel safe enough, our understanding is great enough, there will be Communion. It goes beyond observation and bestowment. There is a union. We become one in Heart.

Pisceans show us how. Gregory Colbert, and so many artists of the Soul, sweetly illustrate this process. Musicians bring Spirit through sound, whether calling us to action with rousing rock and roll, a melody that makes us cry – either for happy or deep longing, sadness, a symphony that blends hundreds of sounds, myriads of delicate moments, or a single flute playing poignantly in the desert canyon calling the Ancestors to us.

Pisceans take us to sea, way out to nowhere. Ocean sports require us to meet the elements, to adjust moment to moment to tidal shifts. We are in training to humbly accept not knowing. We BE with ourselves at our greatest personal depths. We see there are powers far greater than one human being. Being a human doesn’t save our lives, but how we be a human can.

We go to the ashram, to take silence so we may hear what else there is besides ourselves and our own mind. We sit so we may feel, know our own heart beating, the earth’s own breath. There is divine music, divine Soul. We learn that nothing is something.

Surrender in a good way marks an open heart. We have to feel safe with ourselves to get there, otherwise we are always holding the weight of the protective Shield. Part of us is in distraction, not able to fully engage in what comes our way. Check in with yourself and see what it is that scares you, learn how you can deal with it in a good way. Doors will open. Spiritual health brings redemption, raises us up to be able to fulfill our dreams.

Accepting the great finality may be the ultimate Communion. Our connection with Earth literally feeds us – she grows our food. We come to know her creatures and our part as one of them, our connections with each other human to human. We learn of great beings, Spirit, tall trees, long lived stones, that witness our journeys life after life. We sense Humanity as a great collective in progress, evolution. When we come to the ‘end’ of this existence often so much becomes clear, what is really important. Love is often the final answer.

Pisces Overview of Year to Come!

First, and ‘right now,’ Pisces hosts the Chiron and Uranus final sign changes! Chiron enters Aries on the first day of Pisces, Feb 18! Uranus enters Taurus March 6 on the New Moon! We have 16 days of both of them together in Aries, collaborating on Uranus’s 7 years of experience, and Chiron’s new plans! Uranus worked so hard to give Chiron a good head start, to open and pave the way for Chiron’s success. Chiron will follow up on what Uranus has started, bringing some favorable outcomes. After those initial 16 days, Uranus will then go on into Taurus until April 2026.   

While Chiron finished Pisces, we reviewed our choices and remembered why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. 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. There are a lot of earth changes ahead. Chiron takes 51 years to orbit and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again!

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 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.

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!

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 it’s 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.

Pisces, ever sensitive to 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, immigration not far behind. 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! 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

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs most of Pisces new year! 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. He 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 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 while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

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

Pisces Miracle Being Born Danielle Bhavya Winter

A luminous miracle being born…by mystic Artist Danielle Winter of Bonn, Germany

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

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 while others have them late and yours happened while you were young. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies, compare your chart with another’s.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed and still changing! 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 now moving from 20 to 24 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 20 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 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, the Underworld. Pisces is the primordial sea of creation of Humanity. It is loose, but if you don’t pay attention to its warning signs, it takes you back. It is every bit as powerful as Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. Pluto heals your body, Capricorn your skin, bones and business. Pisces heals your spirit. Pisces understands Pluto Capricorn requests, but can ignore them, and Pisces can be hard to pin down. Yet if your request is about Soul work, a saving cause, an art or music event, Pisces will shapeshift into take-care-of-it mode. Don’t expect them to stay that way all the time. They need musing time, time away alone, time in the sea if possible. They come back with insights and visions. They may need rescuing or to be gathered back, but that time away is precious and worthwhile, even sacred.

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 15 to 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Perfect for Pisces! It is so like him he may barely notice. Or he feels validated even if others don’t understand. He is strong, more aware than ever of his unique abilities to ‘see’ in many dimensions, to merge and learn what another way of life can be, how others feel. There are limits to compassion. He needs to guard himself from tempting seductions of any kind, to remain true to his own heart. Perhaps he needs to know how to limit time with negative influences, when to get help to stay clean. Curiosity isn’t always a reason to proceed. Keeping in a creative mode, working to heal ourselves and others, can keep our Spirit on course.

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, will cover 29 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018 the first time! Those of you with factors in the last couple 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 been 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 traversing Pisces has stirred every particle of Pisces through and through. Uranus is thunder and lightning; Aries is the fires of Initiation! It has not exactly been a comfort zone for Pisces that sleeps and dreams, likes time alone. Uranus is the collective of Humanity, the infernal Internet, LOL, and Aries is first responders and soldiers on the front line. Pisces doesn’t know whether to watch it like a movie, get out of the way for a few years or join up in self defense! Yet there are profound things being done and it often takes many to carry Light of such magnitude. Uranus is also loners, whether genius or antisocial or both. Aries is another wildcard independent. And Pisces loves time alone. We find that at times a single person stands up as a Voice, even children and young people (Aries). A Pisces martyr or savior can make a huge difference. Time to make alliances and pull together in behalf of these gallant people giving their lives. Pisces does most poignantly hear that call.

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 is a much more temperate comfy zone for Pisces. It helps Pisces ground, find a center of Peace. Taurus is aware of natural cycles and sees Pisces’s need for those yoga, meditation breaths. He may sit there too. When Taurus gains momentum, Pisces can easily keep up. Taurus asks them to come along and they go. Pisces can sense the deliberation, adds insights of his own. Though Taurus is earth, Pisces is not unfamiliar with the flora and fauna of the sea, the seabeds, the shifting sands at the tideline. They have always been coastal companions. Ebb and flow. Pisces absorbs all, remixes the percentages! Taurus wants to make beauty and Pisces has always wanted Divine Perfection. In quiet times these two could steal from the bank so slowly no one knows what happened. In stormy times, Taurus finds the lady may sweep him off his feet.

CHIRON, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, first entered Aries April 17 2018! After taking a foray into Aries, he is now back in Pisces until TODAY, Feb 18, 2019, first day of Sun in Pisces! He will cover 0 to 6 Aries, activating any factors you have in or very close to 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. 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, in time, a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of 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. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron is finished  with Pisces, but not forgotten. He has strengthened as the Shaman Healer, fluid in Pisces, taking only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician. Chiron has been adding further healing and teaching abilities, updated right relationship counseling and current good business practices. Things are a lot different than they were 51 years ago! Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign!

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, and in Aries, 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! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. Pisces may be thrilled to pick up the pace in view of the possibilities – so many things, people need a boost, to know that someone is taking point and they can gather, have hope! There are some refreshing ideas worth standing up for. Pisces has held visions for a long time. Steps are taking place to help those dreams come true! It’s a spiritual tide.

SATURN builds from 13 to 27 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! 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! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 27 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through February 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 earth to Pisces ocean water! Saturn likes things that hold admirable power, but Pisces is rather ungovernable by anyone, and Saturn is earthly laws. If he can harness the sea in a good way, that works. Pisces may feel stifled on first encounter, since Pisces is a timeless free roving Soul of the Dreamtime Kingdom. Saturn is telling him what to do, and that time and timing make a difference. As empathic as Pisces is he can tell if Cap just wants his way or what’s best for us all. He’s willing to go with the time factor if the cause is more important than his immediate comfort. But Saturn must allow his Pisces guide to float and flitter a bit. That’s how Pisces snags those ideas, insights out of the ethers. You have to be relaxed enough to go with the flow, be one with what’s happening to see it wholly. Working together, Saturn can build those dreams that Pisces cherishes.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 17 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, double fire, can be a bit much for ocean water Pisces. Yet both can be runaways! Jupiter travels forever, and Pisces comes from where life from the sea was incubated and people have always sailed into the Forever. Jupiter is always learning and Pisces has shown people the most exotic places. Even now, air travelers cross the oceans, see the sunrises, sunsets of glory! If Pisces is swishing around happily, he doesn’t necessarily mind someone jumping in with him, and absorbs what is shared. Pisces is quick to tell if it is lies and scam or information that will make a blessed difference. If Pisces is quietly at meditation or the ashram a few months, he may find Jupiter to be too noisy, nosy, newbie opinionated, or oldie arrogant, one way or another without respect. They may not hit it off. If Pisces is hiding out, Jupiter will jump in his space and haul him off with him! Wow, forgot the world is such a big place and so many things need to be done! Jupiter has big plans and when the cause is right, Pisces will teach Jupiter a thing or two, 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 Pisces can blissfully get away with saying ‘Rules? What rules?!’ Jupiter can laugh and applaud, he himself another runaway, but Capricorn doesn’t find that half funny! There’s are deadlines to be met, orders to get out. Depending on your Pisces, conformity may not be a reasonable expectation. If you still want them, the rules may have to bend a bit. But Jupiter and Pisces want good things for people and our earth, and Capricorn and Pisces have an agreement about laws of nature and Spirit. Jupiter working with Cap is having fun and Pisces likes what they are doing. Capricorn is practical, so listens to artful ideas Pisces has. Things go more smoothly as they all get used to each other. They all have a tad of spiritual flavor. Jupiter believes in temples, meeting places. Capricorn is the High Priest at times. Pisces is the Universal Guide. They may not use these words, but there is an unspoken knowing.

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. They may be favorable at one time and not another.

If your Jupiter is in 14 Sag to 17 Capricorn, 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, Dear Pisceans! May every day be filled with Magic & Miracles!

Full Thunder/Hay TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

Longest Eclipse of 21st Century, Uranian T Square, Saturn Fate & Wisdom! Jupiter/Neptune, Venus Love, and….Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde!

Friday July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

Magnificent TOTAL Lunar Eclipse Sept 27, 2015 taken from California​ by Alfredo Garcia Jr

The Full Moon is a TOTAL Lunar ECLIPSE July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45. It will be seen in a vast area, but, sorry, not in the US. However! It will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100), a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes! Happy viewing to those of you who get to see it! Time to get tickets to the place with the best weather!

Why? Per EarthSky: In 2018, the July full moon and July lunar apogee – the moon’s most distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit – both fall on the same date: July 27, 2018. Therefore, the July 2018 full moon showcases the most distant and smallest full moon of the year. Sometimes called an apogean full moon (or micro-moon or mini-moon), this smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth’s shadow than does a full moon that’s closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit. That’s why a full moon at or near lunar apogee adds to the duration of a total lunar eclipse.​

As a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Moon will not be dark, she will be a bright living red/orange! The connection is maximum, perfect alignment. If you were at the places on Earth it is visible, right on the central Eclipse path, even more so. But for those of us other places, it still has immense potency. This is our second Eclipse of three this summer. People have been asking me if they should meditate or party. Both, of course! Get out there and feel it! BE with it, BE it! Sit with it. Give gratitude for the good. Ask reverently for connection with the greater beings. Listen with your body, mind and Spirit. Send requests to be a better emissary, for the greater good of Humanity.

Shake it! Thunder is like that drum roll when Leo walks on stage, only bigger! It’s a celebration! With all that sunlight, the hay dries in the fields and gives the golden glow Leo’s love! Mama Moon is over opposite in Aquarius bringing all her friends to see this extraordinary performance. Aquarians are hard to impress, so it must be way better than average to get those excellent reviews. If nothing else, Leos give it their sincere best! They aim to please!

Fixed T Square! A couple days ago Sun squared Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Sun didn’t know whether to blink or bolt or just take it in! Thunder is one thing, lightning another! The Gods do talk and write the lightning script! You may have left some friends behind, or they pushed you forward against the odds! Moon is in Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! She can be shy, but less so in Aquarius. He understands lunacy, foibles. And Moon just crossed rowdy and randy Mars 2, 3 hours ago! She was revolutionary and unruly, wherever they were, with no apology! Possibly impatient and grumpy too. A little scared, but took an uncommon chance, and she’s not going back! Sun saw the whole thing, and wonders if he will ever see her again. She certainly won’t be the same when he sees her next! What’s astonishing is all these are fixed signs – Aquarius, (Uranus in) Taurus, and Leo! But this combo, a T Square, is challenging. Aquarius and Uranus are change makers – the only constant is change! Uranus is at the point of the T!​ Leo will stand his ground, is heroic, but he does react to the challenge, and changes to make the most of it all! In steadfast fashion, he prevails! Steady in the Light.

Sun trined Chiron 2+ days ago, while Moon sextiled only about 4 hours ago! Chiron is a great one to consult with about business, partnerships – both biz and pleasure, health and teaching! Chiron tied Moon and Sun together and now they can express what he had to show them as Mars makes his upcoming sextile with Chiron. Mars in AQ is uncommonly fast, and Chiron is in Mars’ sign Aries. Whatever they do, it will be done PDQ, pretty darn quick! Chiron in Aries has a hella lot of spunk, so Moon and Sun were some surprised, and plenty excited to try these special new ideas! We all may find ourselves taking a more potent stand for matters that concern us.

SIX planets are at 2, 3, and 4 degrees! They all have and are interacting with Saturn, the planet of Dharma, now at 3 Capricorn, in his own sign! Sun just checked in for an assessment. Saturn will almost make the trine again with Uranus, but not quite. But Saturn remembers he doesn’t have time to hang out with all his old friends, times have changed. Now it’s important to focus on the current job, the cause at hand. Mars, in next sign Aquarius, is semisextile. He gives Saturn the elbow in the ribs and reminds Saturn global wide important matters are at hand. Mars will help lead him beyond Capricorn’s usual boundaries safely, and right now! Moon was there and she agrees with Mars, helps bring women into more potent roles. Mars and Moon sextiled Chiron and he has lent his support! Get going, make it possible! Saturn will also almost square Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign! Old worries come back to gnaw at us, but we have learned more and know what to do. If it requires attention, take care of it now and keep your life moving!

Change is inevitable, but it comes in smaller and bigger doses! Our Lunar Eclipse and the Aug 11 Solar Eclipse happen during the Mercury/Mars Double Retrograde! Mercury Rxs July 25, just two days ago, so it is what we call ‘in Station.’ At the time a planet turns direction, it appears to stand still, stationary. It’s a time of focus, being immersed in what’s on our mind, coming to understand it during the duration and be good at it. Mercury stands alone, making no traditional connections in this chart. He can be considered free of constraint or from being influenced, or impotent with no connections. That can be good for pure thought, or a mire of mixed thinking that confuses and nothing comes to pass for our efforts. But, we observe and reserve and can see how things work, make a list as we go and take up some of our ideas later if they pass the test of time! Mercury can see both directions after a retrograde pattern is complete!

Mars Rx wants to DO something even if it’s wrong. Consider it a trial run. You may invest some time and materials, but that may be considered to be part of the cost of doing business. Revise your exercise program appropriate to the signs Capricorn and Aquarius. Capricorn is more conservative and able to wait things through. Might miss some worthy experiences or save a lot of time while others are flailing. In Aquarius even the Gods can’t sit still. With Mars, experiential experimenting, research are a must. It’s not just a thought, we must see it for real. And that tells the bigger story, the unanticipated becomes apparent! It’s heady and exciting! So glad we had the courage to try! We are able to advance sooner knowing how better to make things work! If we hadn’t tried, we may have missed something important and have to do a recall later.

Since Mars doesn’t complete its 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!

Venus is right now putting the sweets on Pluto so he will more graciously journey his Path to the Ecliptic. Venus 19 Virgo sweetly trines Pluto in Capricorn at the same degree. She blesses him with simple advice he recognizes as a cue he is doing the right thing. His spirits are buoyed and he continues on his important life altering mission.

To the rest of us, on our daily endeavors, she will act like a salve to all the bouncing around we have been taking – the T Square challenges, the double retro. Pluto will be especially blessed. He can be so inscrutable, alone, especially in proper businesslike Capricorn dealings. But Venus listens for her cues. She understands the importance of each detail, smooths the kinks, manages the books and sometimes knows more than Pluto! She helps him without him asking. He deeply admires her and is so grateful though he may not say so. If he starts telling her secrets or indulges in a little gossip, that’s a big deal. It means he trusts her, her discretion. Prime compliment. He may at times be obsessed. She redirects his attention to the priorities in a practical way he can hear without offense. If he is neglecting his health, she offers some options and lets him choose. She is wise to that he will chuck the stuff later if he isn’t in charge. He is strong in his intuition. It has to be his choice. She adroitly makes his appointments in view of many considerations and often makes brilliant decisions herself! She might get a raise.

IN THE BACKGROUND

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, only 23 days until their 3rd and last trine Aug 19, the day after Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde.

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his 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. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

The innocent, the Profound, Eclipses and Ecliptic, retrogrades, Saturn and Uranus bring us the new and pure, and ageless wisdom, and a wild crazy time! Let that thunder roll!

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Inconjunct Pluto Ecliptic Point!

Still in Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde, SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors!

Saturday August 11 at 2:58 AM Pacific, 18 Leo 42

Leo Crescent New Moon Aug 11 2018 Solar Eclipse Josephine Wall

Leo is THE sign of Cosmic Hair! Celestial artist Josephine Wall couldn’t have captured it better!

This is the last of our three summer eclipses, the second Solar Eclipse! It will be partial, best viewed in Northern Russia at 68%.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest 2018 lunar event by degree preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

The Sun is potently in his own Sign Leo the Light, joined with Mother Moon, a total Light infusion/exchange! It’s a perfect line up with Earth, a straight shot, so we get some too, ALL of us, no matter if night or day wherever you are, or whether you chart lines up with it or not!

This infusion is off to the side of, inconjunct Pluto, a dark planet, yet a Phoenix that rises from his own ashes. Infused with this Leo Heart of Light energy, Resurrection is likely! If you can see it you can heal it! Let the Light come in to never-been-seen-before places. Admit the hurt, bad places; admit the power you have always had! Get clean and use what you’ve got for the greater good! Use obsessions to your favor; focus them on your top three goals. Totally satisfying. Use extremes to your favor. Have a broad range of attention and resources, head for the top rank, then multiply that by 100 or more! Since Pluto is in Capricorn there may be old parental matters that have hobbled you for a long time. Step out now. They were only in your child mind.

In Capricorn Pluto has intentions and can be obsessed, unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

This infusion is important because Pluto is quite close now, at 19 Capricorn 20 retrograde. That’s only 22 minutes of space away! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path through our sky, the Path of Light. The Dark, hidden Plutonian ways, skills, come to the Light to lend a hand on the quiet. The Light brightens our Path so we know exactly where we are needed next. No mistake. Capricorn is the Builder. Raise the elevation. Build a Bridge that we may collaborate and have union. Build a Temple that we may give gratitude.

On the day before, Aug 10, at 8:54 PM Pacific, the Moon was exactly with Mercury the Messenger. They were square Jupiter in Scorpio and inconjunct Neptune in Pisces. Things went bump in the night. Scorpio loves the dark. It’s the Underworld medium where secrets and power can be kept or corrupted, used for healing the invisible psyche, clearing subtle forms obscured by daylight scrutiny. It’s a different medium and things that belong to it must be observed in their own element for true comprehension. Jupiter wants the truth, so will do what it takes, hoping it’s luck will protect it.

Neptune in his own sign Pisces is another nighttime combination, the Dreamtime. If you feel it you can heal it. Our imaginations give us cues that we can use when we are ready and able. Moon in Leo brings the Light and  nurtures the shadows, obscurity may grant a glimpse when the mists momentarily part. Logical Mercury doesn’t panic, is used to such dramatic options. He is quick to note what he saw, and amazingly talks it over with Neptune, who isn’t always able to stay clear. His natural element is intuition, not logic. By naming it, a lot can be released, a fear or an addiction is over.This important work first allows the Eclipse to do greater work since the channel is not blocked or slowed, obscured, by psychic or emotional debris.

Mars and Mercury are still both Retrograde. (See also the Full Moon above for more about them.) They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and Mars being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving the square with Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!​

Mars and Mercury matters are not settled. Mars in Aquarius is on the brink of returning to Capricorn for 29 days. What we are doing and why, the work we do and who we do it with, are under consideration. Old skills work, but new ideas lead to greater success in time! Mercury is in Leo, matters of the heart, our sense of personal identity, our creative ability. They are being reviewed. How we talk about those matters, and who we talk with, makes a huge difference. Consider, but don’t expect a final answer during the double retrograde. Wait a good four days after Mercury goes forward, direct, Aug 18 to take any action at all. And you are still taking your chances until after Mars goes direct Aug 27. Be ready to make further adjustments.SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors! We not only have a New Moon, new beginnings, but six factors in the six first degrees! Four of them are moving forward into new ventures, but Mars and the North Node are retrograding, making sign changes.

  • Mars is retrograding out of Aquarius, at 0 AQ, back to 29 and 28 Capricorn.
  • Chiron is Retrograde at 1 Aries, is slower than Mars, so doesn’t catch up with Mars.
  • Uranus is also retrograding at 2 Taurus, slower than Chiron, but in a close position with Chiron that it holds for a 13 year period. They have both changed signs this year, however, so the new game is on! Aries is new beginnings and leaders. Uranus was in Aries, but has passed the baton to Chiron as Uranus is now in the next sign Taurus. Sudden Earth changes. Animals, plants, minerals, climate.
  • Saturn is Rx at 3 Capricorn, but doesn’t go so far back as to connect with either Chiron or Uranus.
  • Venus at 4 Libra is going forward and is leaving her square with Saturn. Being in one of her own signs, Libra, she attempted to placate or boost Saturn’s morale, act as a go-between, or inspire him to find a kinder way to negotiate. It was a challenge, he may not immediately act on, but still, the experience of their encounter is with him. He sees the advantage she offers.
  • She has more success sextile the North Node at 5 Leo! Leo likes her style and she draws him out of himself to consider other people’s needs as well as his own. She does it with class, so he follows her lead! The NN, always in a general retrograde motion, will take her beautiful and classy insights with him back into Cancer. Even the kids will eat the cross cultural dramatic, exciting food preparations! Heroes will be born!

IN THE BACKGROUND

This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter’s last trine with Neptune Aug 19! Jupiter is now at 14 Scorpio 49, only 47 minutes of space apart and 8 days until the trine is exact! It’s only 7 days until Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde, the day before the Jupiter trine!

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his 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. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign Leo! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway. If you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time for acceptance and synthesis. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! Thank you.
