Full Strawberry Moon! Building a Better World! 

Wednesday June 27 at 9:53 PM Pacific 6 Capricorn/Cancer 28

Cancer 2018 Full Strawberry Moon

Barefoot early in the dewy garden plucking ripe juicy strawberries…. This is Loupii’s beautiful summery version. Sometimes the moon is tinged red. That occurs in the summer because the moon appears lower on the horizon.

Moon in Capricorn has just passed Capricorn’s planet Saturn, he in his own sign! Out the gate and along the path to the next item/person that needs caring for. Saturn retrograde has revised some of the building plans and Moon is off to find materials and others to complete that additional work. Much better than it was before. Mama has told Father Time her feelings and he has steadied her, assured her she can take it efficiently step by step, that this too will pass. Good lessons will be learned and all in good time applied in a good way. He will be sure she has shelter; she will feed him each day when he is tired and done with his work. They both have concerns for children, family matters, securing their professions, having solid community connections. They will stand together in behalf of elders and women’s and children’s rights.

Opposite Sun! Expand your dimensions! Reach out and shake hands. Sun is in Mama Moon’s sign! He lights her domain, shines long in the summer evenings. Much gets done and the family has comfortable social time at dinner. Sun gives his heart, shares generously, enjoys entertaining, family events are planned, schools and courses are chosen. Moon may be quite tired, even sad or depressed at times, but Sun lifts her up, finds help, lightens her schedule and whisks her away to the family retreat cabin for some well-earned time out! A new cookbook and she’s happily fixing those tasty homemade meals she is famous for! Moon and Sun listen to each other, suggest, discuss, collaborate!

Inconjunct/semi-sextile the Moon’s nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars in Aquarius is leading the old South Node to a higher expression, possibly out of stagnation or habit though that would be rare for the electrical sign Aquarius! Perhaps Mars is reigniting some old ways to a more pointed focus, implementing old thoughts that had been given up, us thinking they were impossible! Maybe their time has come! The Sun in Cancer the sign before the North Node in Leo, has resonance because the Sun is Leo’s planet! Cancer is careful to encourage without over mothering; the Sun adds light the North Node understands. Warming helps us to relax even when we are a bit scared. Cancer knows about that. Taking chances isn’t always easy, but sometimes the world is a better place for it when we do. Hold my hand. I’ll walk with you.

Sun squared Chiron 4 days ago, the Moon only a few hours ago. They have been considering how to implement new healing techniques. Chiron is fresh in his new sign, and Aries is fresh all by itself! He has a mind to get people excited, try some new remedies, new biz techniques, how to get food on the table soonest! Sun in Cancer, a tad more conservative and protective of the past, might have said ‘I’ll think about it.’ And does, not wanting to miss a possible opportunity, especially if it is a learning program for kids, about homes, kitchen devices, foods, food preparation and nutrition.

Venus in Leo has some other things on her mind. Neptune has whispered to her, something about Spirit being just as important as pride of ownership and beauty. Hmm…ok. Venus in Leo loves her exercise, dances, sweeps the world off its feet! She is dramatic, attractive, a gifted teacher, is super romantic, and blessed with a lot of heart and courage. Neptune gives her insights as she goes. She is more tuned to not just prowess, but that she is a role model that inspires others to try too. Dreams can come true. Ask for more, do more. Give it your best.

Uranus, the planet of higher mind, has recently come into Taurus. It is calmer, more gentle, yet the Earth is changing beneath our feet! Mercury in Cancer more easily relates to this wildcard planet now that it is steadyish in Taurus. Cancer likes its security, but Mercury, another mind planet, is intrigued! Uranus is the planet of change, evolution, and Cancer is the Moon’s sign, always changing through the signs, and forever the scholar of the generations! They have several harmonies though they are technically square, in challenge, with each other. There will be several surprise benefits as any challenges that arise are considered and resolved.

The glorious Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. They are staying in close aspect now through the 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. See more. Plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! 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.

Honor yourself, honor your parents! Give love with all your heart! We are building a better world together.

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Opposite Pluto!
Venus Grand Earth Trine, Transformation & Immortality!

Thursday July 12 at 7:48 PM Pacific and US, 20 Cancer 41

Cancer New Moon 2018 Sunset Crater Volcano

If you are in Europe​, east of the US, this will be your first Friday the 13th solar eclipse since December 13, 1974! The next Friday the 13th solar eclipse won’t be forthcoming until September 13, 2080. This partial ECLIPSE won’t be visible in the US, but very south in Tasmania, Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica, South Pacific and Indian Oceans. But we are in for a treat July 27! It will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100)!

We are starting the summer eclipse cycle. Some years we have two, others we have three, and this is a three banger!  July 12 is a partial eclipse of the sun. July 27 is a TOTAL eclipse of the Moon. Lucky August 11 is a partial eclipse of the Sun! Plan your nighttime  celebrations!

July 12’s New SuperMoon
 is in her own sign Cancer, with the Sun in Cancer! That’s potent! FEEL IT! If you are coastal, go surfing! If you are Pagan, hold a Women’s Circle! Expect your daily affairs to be a little heightened, and you, your family, people to possibly be more emotional. That will be more true for people who have factors in their astrological charts at 18 to 22 degrees or especially so for Cancers born July 12.


The ECLIPSE is outrageously opposite Pluto at the same degree!
 It’s an old fashioned event. Cancer is her traditional self, home culture, take care of the women and kids, the family. Pluto is in Capricorn, the elder, running conservative businesses, the Past, Guardians, the Law, mentoring. Cancer is the nurturing mother; Capricorn the strict master, ruler of time, age, wisdom. Pluto rules the underworld, big money that changes hands, the secrets we keep, intimacy in the dark, death is the final threshold. We shall be reminded of our mortality. And, Pluto is the detoxer, purger, healer that clears us, does remarkable healings, the Phoenix in us that rises from our own ashes. Yes, we face our demons and rise from our own ashes. Those ashes are the fertilizer of our Souls.

Mercury is YOD! He must keep his head, stay logical and vocal. He must clearly and cleanly name what he sees, no denial, and tell others so they may stay clear minded too. He must mindfully be on the Path, be aware of presences along the way, adjust accordingly. He just left inconjunct Neptune, is coming into inconjunct Pluto. Neptune gives illusion, confuses us with martyrdom or addictions, false saviors. Or Neptune gives 100% clarity of psychic perception and we safely navigate the mire. Pluto is seductive and obsessive – money, sex, power. This enchantment may be what we need to ‘see’ deeper, and, as possible, we need to be able to disengage without harm to anyone.

Mars Retrograde at the Moon’s South Node. Though separating now, Mars is still reminding us to use our Aquarian connections wisely, in the Spirit of times to come. The gift is to use them for evolution, the greatest good with the furthest evolved purpose of mind. That will support the one on one, heart to heart efforts of the North Node in Leo, the sign of Light. If Leo choses to speak or perform, the entire group, 100s, 1000s of people will be awakened at once!

The North Node, always generally retrograde, is moving faster than Saturn. Though Saturn is retrograding away, the NN overtakes him! They will be inconjunct. The NN in Leo has high spirits and cheers Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Sat/Cap are sometimes gloomy, but other times they are champion workers, determined and dedicated to achieve superb success. Leo can film their epic efforts to show others how divinely Sat/Cap builds our home, renovates historic properties, builds luxury sustainable subdivisions, the Temple, skyscrapers, even a veggie garden! Leo wants elegance as well as functionality and the property is HOT!


Venus will bless Mars
 with her inconjunct and he will stir her Virgo patterns. Since he is retrograding to meet her, they are approaching each other! She has systems he can immediately step into, test and use. He is super intelligent in Aquarius and offers instant ideas to improve the process. He sees the value of her sensible applications and let’s others in the network know about them. She estimates the financial impact of his choices and saves him time by helping him choose the most efficient and productive. Yes.

Saturn will come very close, but, won’t make that trine with Uranus. You will feel it, can sniff it. It will make you think. You will see what needs fixing or doing, the organization or friend you would like. But what you hope for may be simply a blush and a brush with someone fateful. They will go on without you. The organization may be too much for you, you aren’t ready for it yet. It could suddenly splinter apart and dissolve. You will be changed and inspired, see how it could have been done better, and will accomplish more for the encounter.

Saturn also won’t make the square with Chiron. They are both retrograde, but Saturn is slowing to turn forward, and doesn’t catch up. Again, they come quite close, just over a degree apart, but the connection that consummates doesn’t happen. In this case that might be a relief. We might be fearing a business deal won’t come through, it has difficulties being negotiated. Timing and materials, the right person to put in charge aren’t available; the person is not as qualified as needed to be. Things could be too old or take too long, delays. Keep the main idea and people in mind and come back to it later, though it may not ever gel. As we think on it later, we are glad because something better, entirely different, happens.

Venus Grand Earth Trine! Venus has just left a sweet trine with genius Uranus, the planet of the Futurist! Now in Taurus, he wants steady evolution for Earth herself. The planet is changing and we need to stay with it. He has infused Venus with immense ideas. She in Virgo has a gift, the grace to organize and expedite these ideas so they may be applied efficiently. She knows there is an elemental need for freedom to research what can be the best applications for the results needed. She’s a fine analyst, works the percentages, gives advice that has been tested.

Venus acts as go between from Uranus to Saturn the Builder! How perfect he is for the work! They make the exact trine late evening the 13th. She has been watching Saturn’s progress, seeing what works, what doesn’t, so take note of what she likes about what he is doing. He is powerfully in his own sign Capricorn. What he hopes to build has merit. He just won’t do it with Uranus or Chiron for the time being. Sometimes quitting a situation saves time, energy can be put where, for the time being, it is better used. But Venus is bringing the best of the Uranian ideas to him, cloaked with her blessing. She’s a sharp cookie, so he trusts her choices. He has good insight about who the right people are, the materials to use. Using his excellent sense of timing will pay off. Venus admires his style, so he feels the better for his choice. She and he may make a solid bond both personally and in business. He admires her Virgo common sense and intelligence. She understands numbers and percentages. She does the books, guides him succinctly financially. He pays her well and sees that as an investment. If he doesn’t, Venus, tell him to go or you quit him. You are worth it! Time for respect.

The ECLIPSE is exactly at the Fixed Star Castor! Castor is one of the two rival brothers of the constellation 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 are exceptionally gifted intellectually. Where these geniuses often need help is in not letting their concern for others go ‘over the top’. And 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!’

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, less than a month away from 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. See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! 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.

Dark skies open us to unhindered gateways. Eclipses are exact lineups that let us channel directly! Let your dreams ripple, pull up your socks, get to work ~ be there when the miracles happen!

New SuperMoon! Mars TSquare! Saturn at GALACTIC CENTER!

Thursday May 25, 12.44 PM Pacific at 4 Gemini 47!

Our May new SuperMoon is the second of three in a row 2017 New SuperMoons, the closest supermoon of the year! We may experience higher tides in our thinking, excited about new ideas that merge and spread. Grads will find themselves thinking about whether to go on with school, where to go, what to do! It may be a little overwhelming for everyone.

Only a week ago we finished the exact Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus May 17 and 18. Jupiter inconjunct Neptune will stay with us until July 4, 48 days! It is what we call being in Station, at the turn of Jupiter’s retrograde to direct/forward. It turns forward on the June 9 Full Strawberry – Rose Moon! Every New and Full Moon through the July 8 Full Buck Moon will have this aspect strongly.

The New Moon is not in close degrees with the Jupiter inconjunct, nor is it making any close aspects to any other planets. It stands on its own. Moon is Mother nurturer and at New Moons feeds Father Sun. In Gemini you can bet it is alphabet soup! She whispers tiny thoughts to take his mind off things, sings faery songs, dances in the light, does the crossword puzzle with him at the breakfast table. She makes a quick run, checks the neighbors cat on her way home. Then they are off for the day, gathering choice bits of information here and there. A few errands, home for dinner and a quick exchange of hugs and updates. A settle in or friends over. Sweet dreams, talking in your sleep.

There are lots of connections at 19 and among the 20s degree planets.

Venus Squares Pluto. Love is being tested. Pluto in Capricorn claims experience and age on his side. Venus in Aries stamps her foot, wants what she wants right now and is willing to fight about it. Pulling rank doesn’t fly with her. She’s wanting what’s new, to take a risk. He’s wanting the way it has been or the most practical at the least cost. It will take some give and take plus a little time to work it out.

Jupiter in Libra inconjuncts that Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter shifts gears, directions and alliances. Good thing Neptune is quick on the uptake and understands most of the time. Jupiter likes social chatting and international conditions. There are times Pisces prefers solitude, to gently contemplate freely, making associations of mind and Spirit. He seeks intuition rather than advice from well dressed experts. Yet both have their truths and offerings. Important not to judge or to slur each other’s style. Sometimes legal matters take precedence, other times it’s the Court of Heaven that offers insight to the right thing to do. Rather than living in self chosen poverty, as Pisces can sometimes do, Jupiter in Libra leads us to the right school that brings you to the door of happiness doing what you always wanted to do! Could be art, music, design, being with people who celebrate exactly who you are!

Mercury in Taurus sextiles Neptune! Time to get the word out. Go to the specialty school. Let the dream come true, find it a safe place, a home to grow in. Along with your fine intuition, get steady in the work. A bit at a time will do nicely. Be patient, speak kindly, but say it. Be there.

Mars in Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries! Now that’s Spark! Mars is the planet of Aries! It loves to be first, an innovator, the consultant. In Gemini it loves variety, to move and mutate, adapt and deliver! Uranus is the ultimate lead, a planet of friendship, community purpose, internet, worldwide flight and organizations for the best and betterment for all! Mars will never be bored and never be done with all that potential! Uranus will be thrilled with the new kid on the block, how quickly ideas are put together. Occasionally things may be a bit premature, but you gotta laugh at the delight as new things are tested, corrected, attempted again until they get it right! Time to celebrate!

Mars Mutables TSquare with Chiron and Saturn

Mars squares Chiron in Pisces. Mars may be stunned by how Chiron’s feelings might have been hurt, and back away. Chiron may be thinking how Mars didn’t realize there could be a lack of health or physical ability, a thoughtless statement made. Whoa! Let’s all backup a bit. Slow it down. Mars in Gemini isn’t known for patience, so keep to short sentences, statements and requests. Agree to meet again very soon. Due to the differences in tempos, it may end with an agreement to let go of your connection for now. But if possible, let’s not let this fester and lose each other entirely. Be friends but not work together? Aside from this, there could be injuries to hands or feet. Burns, rashes. Or Mars jumps in with new remedies that are remarkable!

Saturn and Chiron are separating their square by 2 degrees now. They will be back but not until Nov 2. There is going to be plenty of time to think things over after the April 30 square. This is not considered an easy aspect, some even call it a ‘heartbreak’ aspect, tough on relationships if the degrees activate your chart in the romance dept. Losses can be formidable seeming whether in love, health or business. Maybe you got in over your head, need to back up, slow down. Saturn in Sagittarius can be opinionated, a demanding instructor, intimidating. Or he can make you work extra hard to get things done and you’re glad that he did, couldn’t have done it by yourself. Back to school and on your feet. Chiron can be a weak spot, and you may be embarrassed for it, even in denial. But if you are facing up to it, Saturn can help you get over that threshold too! Might not be fun, but a huge relief. Did it once, can do it again. See more, #3 at this link

Mars is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! If Saturn isn’t fast enough, Mars has got his boots on to give a forward kick to speed things up! Saturn is faster in Sagittarius, but Mars is in Gemini, the combination that is if you think it, you do it, now! Mars may have terrific ideas, but Saturn, the wise TaskMaster, knows the order of things, how to conserve energy and place it accurately both in time and space. To Mars it may feel like running into a brick wall, and it may be a lifesaving event! On the other hand, what brick wall wasn’t meant to be scaled with one flying leap?! If that Mars spunk is right, Saturn may wish he went too!

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close trine, but retrograding away from Uranus. Work and education, friendships and networking expanding the opportunities! Cross cultural expeditions bring new products. Uranus in Aries researches, has breakthroughs, uncanny knowledge that spikes more trials. Innovative solutions occur step after step. It just keeps going! Real estate demographics change. Professional goals broaden. Aging brings more satisfaction than ever. See more, #1 at this link

Uranus is strong at 26 Aries, trining the GALACTIC CENTER, GC, at 26 Sagittarius, where Saturn is now sitting! Saturn is holding the fort, protecting the treasures of our Universe, metering the exchange. Uranus is the planet of the heavens, the electric and eclectic keeper of the Sacred Akashic Records of our Souls! Saturn is the planet of archaeology, ruler of Time, ageless Wisdom. Uranus, ruler of airplanes and the Internet wants to uplift the nature of the lineage of the records, include more of our connections with the fringes, explore possible galactic alliances, changes that are currently beyond our wildest thoughts. Saturn steadies the ship while Uranus amps up the sizzle, electricity, shimmer and valences. Some of that will attract travelers from beyond!

Though a lot feels uncertain these days, know that we are cosmically right on course!

Full Strawberry – Rose Moon!
Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune Station, Jupiter Direct!
Galactic Center, Fixed Star Rigel!

Friday June 9, 6:10 AM Pacific at 18 Sagittarius 53

Gemini Strawberry Full Moon NYC Boni de Oliveira

42nd Street. New York City’s version of Gemini, glowing with the ultimate urban twins, framing a delicious “strawberry moon” on ‪Summer Solstice‬ 2016, the longest and brightest day of the year! Magnificent photo by Bruno Boni de Oliveira. 

Gemini-Sagittarius is according to some spiritual systems the axis of Humanity, the Moon of Metropolis! The Good Word is spread near and far, no Soul neglected!

Orion’s Fixed Star Rigel was at 17 Gemini 02 in 2014, less than two degrees of the Sun/Full Moon axis and inconjunct Pluto. With the Sun, it is potent, noted for being lucky in enterprise, has technical and artistic ability, loves to gain wisdom and knowledge and to spread it to others as well. It has strong will power, love of action! Other factors being well, it can bring fame. If not well, it may be reckless and foolhardy. The Moon may feel deluged with words, though the Moon in Sagittarius may be hugely curious and ready to tag along just to see what will happen! Askew with Pluto may dredge up old obsessions that need clearing, free powers that have been abandoned, forgotten. Now they may be tempted to come back into the Light! Things might be more safe than they used to be.

This 18 degree Sun/Moon axis was with Jupiter, trine and sextile. Sun was lighting the way, charging the valence with Jupiter in Libra May 29 to June 3! Invitations were extended, meetings held, liaisons made, balance sought, honors awarded! Moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign, sextiled Jupiter June 8 at 6:45 PM Pacific, remembering, confidence and optimism reestablished, hope restored! Jupiter being in Station, standing still, has kept that focus. TODAY, at 7:04 AM, less than an hour after the Full Moon, Jupiter turns Direct/forward! Gradually energy of the previous days will be released!

Sun and Moon are in the SAME degree with Pluto in Capricorn. There is a test. Sun in Gemini is aware that certain things are not to be said, others to be revealed in a good way. Some things are universal property, others are personal, not to be stolen or copied. No pickpockets while traveling, take precautions. No uninvited picking people’s minds, or uninvited psychic mind reading. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t make it right. Moon in Sagittarius is a Seeker, comforting people with perspective, enjoying diversity wherever it goes. It shares what it has learned, dispersing knowledge and insights. Pluto in Capricorn may not trust such generosity. Time is their test; do you prove true. And so with your ideas. Cap wonders if it is too good to be true, too lightweight to endure in service. Jot down the ideas, test a little at a time. The Moon in Sag may be long gone, but unbeknownst to them the ideas may live on with you quite well.

Mama Moon and Father Time Saturn are having a meeting! Moon is moving forward, Saturn is retrograding back to her! They make their conjunction 6:19 PM Pacific after the Full Moon. They represent home and family, unconditional love and support and our professional standing, the breadwinner, builder. Each cares deeply, lives in the responsibilities of life. In Sagittarius that may center around education, important tenets of our ethics, justice, our ability to broaden our territory or keep an open mind. Sometimes when Moon is with Saturn she is sad, afraid he won’t be able to live up to his goals. In generally cheerful Sagittarius, temporarily her spirits may be a bit down. Yet though she may seem a bit emotional, exuberant over the top to him, he is cheered by her presence, in fact, a godsend!

Venus, Mercury and Mars are having a threesome! Venus is happy in her own sign Taurus, glad for a hug! Mercury is in one of his own signs also, Gemini! So MUCH to think about, speak of, listen to! Mars is the rights fighter in Cancer, the champion standing up for women and children. He finds you a new home immediately! They are at 3 and 4 degrees, Mercury right in the middle, semi sextile midpoint both Venus and Mars, the lovers! Uh, phone sex could be the best! :) Meet you later! Venus is scanning for values, beauty, a strong foundation, solid business. Sextile Mars in Cancer there is potential as a provider, possibly they can make a home together, definitely he may be the leader for her cause! Gemini wants to talk it over. Consult neighbors and siblings. Get data to backup ideas. If it proves feasible, it’s contract time!

The Galactic Center is still involved with our lunar events! See more This time it is in a Grand Fire Trine! Uranus is at 27 Aries, the Galactic Center is at 26 Sagittarius – Saturn still very close! The grand fire trine is completed by the North Node right on the money at 26 Leo! The North Node in Leo takes us to the Heart of creative expression, each giving their special gift. Uranus in Aries, the first sign, is the spark that ignites the web, the Internet of Consciousness! The Galactic Center in Sagittarius raises our perception! We ascend to a greater vision, see what is coming, and it doesn’t seem so far away after all!

Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is still the outer planet aspect that is the backdrop for our lunar charts. It started May 10, and will continue through the July 8 Full Buck Moon. Jupiter in Libra is like tilting the tides of humanity back and forth until the remaining ones stand at the center, able to be stable as the world shifts around them. Jupiter always looks for the best, finely tuned in Libra! Neptune in Pisces runs the tides and shifts the sand we stand on. We need to be able to not just stand, but to flow, to compensate, at times swim and merge with higher powers. Adjustments can be made fluidly. Dreams can come true as we learn divine navigation.

Gemini/Sagittarius! Gemini is the Word! In this case it is carried by the Full Moon Sun, the Heart. Core communications carry an essence of truth, a deeper meaningfulness that attracts fellow beings that are on the same Path. Sagittarius observes from the vantage point of the Moon, intuitive cycles, natural rhythms. Our purpose becomes more clear as we let some ventures fade, while others fill us with joy. The journey is embraced. We may start with babble and gossip, but we grow. We sort out or try out many possibilities, coming to learn which have potential. Our choices start to seem to have a luck about them. Sagittarius naturally senses what to follow, where to go, which will get us to the future that fits. Sharing our stories keeps us on the road, our own personal planetary grid. Gemini is the expert of linkage. If there is a breakdown in the system, they just know. Off they go to make the repair. Sagittarius might do an on-the-spot reroute as conditions change. They work together quite well.

May your journeys be entirely inspiring!

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each supported an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brought in Gemini, and Mercury turned forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opened the new cycle that set up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon happens just before, the same day the Sun goes into Cancer, and supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune was three days ago preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct. A few days after the 29th energy will be released, starting a forward momentum.

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that,  will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be. x

New Moon – Cancer Stellium, Sirius opposite Pluto, Grand Water Trine!

Monday July 4, 4:01 AM Pacific at 12 Cancer 54

New Moon Milky Way Lakeside Summer Camping Lighted Tent

It’s SUMMER! Grab family and friends, take the camera and let’s camp under the holy stars!

After our recent intensity of three outer planets aspects March through June, we can take time now to assimilate whatever challenges and joys came our way. Cancer can be broody moody, and that’s just fine. Someone’s got to do it. Think of it as a hen sitting her eggs. No telling what will hatch! We keep the ideas warm and incubating, we stay fertile. People walk by and add to our clutch. Our feelings swirl and another new idea is born! Cancers are masters at germination.

This is our first Moon after the outer planet aspects. These last 28 days Mother Moon has been collecting and storing all the bits from all the signs and culminations of the aspects, letting them roll in the bowl and merge, knitting their own kind of strength. Moon is full in her own way as she meets Father Sun. He enLightens the brew, energizes the union, new beginning are given the vital warmth to emerge!

Our Cancer New Moon is between Mercury and Venus also in Cancer! A four planet stellium plus the fixed star Sirius in Cancer! Mother Moon and Father Sun are snuggling among the pillows, likely canoodling. Spooning is a favorite whether together or sharing the sweetest meal. Children are often the hoped for outcome.

The New Moon is just over a degree approaching the fixed star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky in Canis Major, has figured prominently in legends all over the world. The Dogstar, aka the Heavenly Wolf by some, is closest to the Earth in Summer, especially July and August and can even be seen in daytime. That’s where the phrase “dog days of summer” came from. The Dogstar is one of the two hunting dogs of the great hunter Orion. Per constellationsofwords.com ‘Well connected, it promises fame, honors and riches, excellent for military, lawyers and civil servants. …in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. With Moon: Success in business, influential friends of opposite sex, favorable for the father, good health, beneficial changes in home or business.’ Cancers and dogs are noted for their loyalty and their fierce protection of our loved ones. Opposite Pluto, there could be real reasons to double check security at home and business locations. Prevention and mindfulness.

As much as we think of New Moon’s as a dark time, it certainly isn’t for the Moon and Sun! There is nothing but brilliant Light where they are together! Sun bestows his great heart of Light fully, entirely infusing Mama Moon, recharging her. She gives unconditionally, has the huge responsibility to manage the household – all that stuff, and all those dear humans – and needs every bit of that restoration. Father Sun is always giving as big as possible, not just to his own family, but to all! He carries a lot of weight. Mama puts her arms around him and tells him what a true hero he is and just like that, he is recharged too! Happens every 28 days, but in the sign Cancer more emphasis is on Mama Moon in her own sign. The next New Moon will be his turn in Leo, Father Sun’s own sign.

Mercury in Cancer has already been giving it a lot of thought…or should I say feeling?! Where to live, how to support the family, sometimes considering installing mother-in-law quarters, or a place for Grandma and Grandpa to help with the kids. It can be a good investment to keep the elders happy and healthy, to make them know how much they are valued and still able to contribute. Mercury in Cancer’s intuition is fabulous at managing funds. Through its extensive family and community contacts, it knows when to invest, what to invest in, when to hold, and always has the family’s long term needs in mind. There is always a fall back fund that is untouchable. Through those same contacts, business connections can be abundant and there can be multiple income sources.

Mercury at 9 Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces and inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. Neptune is water planet known for it’s intuition. Mercury is logical, more with the facts and data, while Neptune is the dreamer capable of visions that well exceed, transcend, any array of sensibility! Saturn wants to harness the horse and focus on the potential, build the dream step by step, using every bit of data Mercury can dredge up! It won’t always be a comfortable combination. That Saturn and Neptune just squared, a challenge aspect, June 17 for the second time. They will do so again, the last time, September 10. This New Moon will give some insights about how powerfully femininity, women, home & family, culture, feelings, factor in.

Venus in Cancer has a sweet smile and is blessed with an exceptional loving kindness. It can be a little acquisitive, and may be thought of as being selfish sometimes. And that’s likely true too. Gotta take care of yourself. Balance is the key. It’s good to think we are worthy. Good that we model that for our loved ones. Good that we go for the good things in life that in turn will contribute to the happiness of others as well. Venus in Cancer is good in marketing and advertising – art, photography. Historical and old things, geneology, make our story rich, give us an anchor in busy modern life.

Venus makes three exciting aspects!

  • She is separating sextile Jupiter in Virgo. Venus is adorable, attractive in demeanor, seductive at times, highly valued. She loves adornment of all kinds, but in Cancer especially lunar themes, corsets, garments that emphasize her lovely bosom! She loves bed and breakfasts, meals at a sumptuous eatery that feels like home, a snuggly cave-like shelter, likes a camper rather than a camp! Venus makes money, and Jupiter knows just how to manage it to make it more! Percentages are the name of the game. Jupiter wants to teach what Venus does without thinking. Jupiter, now in Virgo, wants to tell the delicious story and bring the nursing department up to par. Together they can give knockout seminars! Traveling in comfort is good as long as the budget stays in line.
  • Grand Water Trine! Venus with Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces! Spas, nurturing healing. Venus will let go of some of her old collections if it will bring a great price for a good cause. Cleansing, letting go, recycling opens doors to greater earnings, simply enjoying each other’s company! It’s clear there is more to life than the material. Scorpio, though a money sign, is the number one sign of therapists, saves your life, awakens the Kundalini, the fire at the base of your spine, bringing a burning passion that must be lived! Chiron knows well we have our wounds, have struggled and suffered, each in our own way, and has become more compassionate, a true healer and teacher. We aren’t just here solely for ourselves. What affects one affects all. Venus’s love is crucial to the courage it takes to be on and stay with this journey.
    x
    Mars inconjunct Uranus in Aries is not at rest. He’s always twitchy in Scorpio. Scorpio is a darkish place, private, more secretive, behind the scenes power, where Mars’ true nature is so very upfront, tell it like it is right now and let’s get on with it! Uranus in Aries is a lot more like Mars! And Aries is Mars’ sign! Uranus may be strange, but it’s new, a genius on the cutting edge and Mars is a leader! So being invisible and waiting in Scorpio is going to be a challenge. But if revelation becomes important, Mars will be the one to spring it! Mars has seen a lot while rooting around, and some of that stuff needs to be spilled. Scorpio is thought to be the one who cleanses, but Mars burns it out, cauterizes the wound and because it’s clean, it heals fast! Uranus is the community, networks of people, the internet, so with all that potential support, Mars may feel like it can do it now. Get a leg up and go for it! Both Mars and Uranus are split second fast, so adjustments can be made as you go!
  • Venus square Uranus in Aries! Believe me, Venus in Cancer is quite different than Uranus in Aries! If she’s bored, she will love it, design and put up the posters, revel in the blast into the future from right when she walks in the door! If she’s afraid, it might take some doing to get her to that party! She may be glad another is leading the good fight and gently lend her energy along the sidelines serving a healthy meal that looks good and tastes good too! If conservative, she may be shocked. Unable to unsee what she saw, she is changed. It may take some time, but she will think on it and find a better way. Some of what happens may be a now or never situation. The aspect isn’t exact until July 7 at 7:24 AM Pacific. I would err to the cautious side. Make test investments; see how it goes over a longer time.

Moon and Sun are at 12 degrees sextile Jupiter 17 Virgo and opposite Pluto 16 Capricorn.

Cancer is a forever scholar sign. Jupiter is college level learning. Virgo loves manuals. The sextile aspect is opportunity type connections, in this case Cancer to Virgo. Cancer is the nurturer, Virgo the caregiver. Growing and learning are happy companions. Making sure people have what they need to learn, that the learning system really works, that there is funding to take care of things, and that there is a safe place to learn, are important. Jupiter and Pluto recently trined. Perhaps some doors were opened for funding options that hadn’t been available before. If the system is too old, reasonable upgrades can be made now. Stay with it and follow through. Perhaps a property purchase is in the offing, a career adjustment or location change. Retirement. There could be an application to change some laws that we have outgrown. Time to let go, reach out, rebuild. Mercury and Sun both complete the opposition July 7, 4:54 AM (essentially on the do business daytime of the 6th) and 3:24 PM Pacific respectively. With those and the Venus square Uranus also the 7th, the 7th brings the culmination of some important considerations. 

This New Moon is sweet but with a little bit of bite too!x

Full Buck Moon! – Uranian T Square Inconjunct Mars Links to Grand Water Trine!

Tuesday July 19, 3:56 PM Pacific at 27 Cancer/Capricorn 40

Full Moon Lake Tahoe CA Summer Pine Trees Rocks

Beautiful Lake Tahoe CA Full Moonset by dedicated photographer Mark Larrea!

Cancer and Capricorn both know the importance and strength of the foundation of the sacred Past, and who better to carry the energy forward?! They both recently made a T Square with Uranus, Uranus at the T point. First is the Sun July 16 at 6:31 AM Pacific, then Moon, just before the Full Moon, reminding us, at 10:06 AM Pacific. Change is befalling us and activating growth from and to many directions! Sometimes we underestimate our friends that carry awakening to the future, but often the greatest inventions and discoveries are made when we take that one step beyond our Past, out of the box! Welcome the blessing.

Mars too made an aspect with Uranus, in fact, due to Mars having been retrograde, it has been in a prolonged inconjunct, allowing a 3 degree range, since June 6. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5, but this one is more significant because it is when Mars makes it station direct, turns forward. The second aspect, during Mars retrograde, was June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. It carries that energy with it to the present time. The inconjunct was continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. It’s still close. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Though inconjuncts are askew and sometimes take us temporarily off track. Even if uncomfortable, we see new things that open our consciousness. These two planets have kinship. Mars is the current ruler, planet associated with Aries, the sign Uranus is in now. Mars is currently in Scorpio, the sign Mars also used to rule. Both are warrior signs, Aries the front line fighter, with the courage of the first responder fighting fires; Scorpio is the ninja therapist midnight requisition specialist, that saves the day in the dark, from behind and within. Sneaky devil, but ever so potent, revelation on the way. Kundalini and resurrection go hand in hand. Sex is great or not at all! Uranus is a lot kinky, unusual/exceptional to say the least, electric and proud of it! So sometimes we don’t have a clue what’s going on; other times it’s all in our face! Ha! Great to be alive! Unpredictable but definitely on course!

Grand Water Trine! Sun trined Mars July 16 at 8:45 PM Pacific after Sun squared Uranus in the wee hours of the morning. What built up all week long to a possibly unsettling 14th, 15th, gets quickly integrated and swiftly taken care of the 16th! Act on what’s in your heart to do! Sun and Mars are both physical, even in water signs! Take a good swim, snorkel, paddle! Get your molecules humming! Maybe get with someone you love! Then alternate a great hot bath/spa, cold shower routine! Refreshing and exhilarating!

Mars completes the Grand Water Trine! He is sure there is potential because he just had a healthy consult with Chiron in Pisces July 17 at 4:42 AM Pacific (essentially the 16th also). Where there’s a will there’s a way! Scorpio is shrewd, and Chiron in Pisces is insightful beyond measure, together clever! Both have an eye to business, and if there is a healing spiritual component to the enterprise, even better. Mars encourages Chiron to trust himself, instead of stewing, stewarding! Chiron has Mars somewhat at his mercy because he sees the obsessions that hold him prisoner in Scorpio. Chiron sees the potential when freed. Mars is potently in station, about to turn forward, direct, in only 10 days on June 29. It will be a slow restart, but strong. It will clear the conduit to core molten purity. It will be steeped in corrective process, focused on a wellspring of power to release the old, develop what’s innovative.

Moon sextiles Mars just 4 juicy hours before the Full Moon at 12:12 PM Pacific. Moon in Capricorn can seem stone cold, but you can bet there will be a realistic appraisal. If merited, you will get a golden report, your efforts well noted. Capricorn knows hard good work when it sees it and respectfully gives honor. The Mars/Capricorn combination could still be a little testy even though sextiles indicate opportunities, because Capricorn is the father figure/boss, and Mars, especially in Scorpio, prefers not being told what to do and dislikes scrutiny of their private doings, what they do and how and when they do it. Better if Capricorn hires Mars as an independent doing piece work. Mars gives powerfully. He is always inspirational in some regard, sparks the ignition, an initiation. If Moon in Cap has relied on their previous standing, Mars may shrewdly surreptitiously suggest they stand taller, make a bigger sweep, do some inventive research, upgrade, add some new juice!

What a powerful backdrop this Full Moon has!

Cancer and Capricorn are guardians of the hearth, and make sure we have shelter to raise our young. There is no more sacred duty of procreation than to give new beings the opportunity to carry the Light in a good way. Cancer holds the babies with love. Capricorn shows them how to professionally serve their community, take their place in the world in a good way. These signs hold fast the basic tenets of our lives. Full Moons invite us to open our hearts, spread our wings as wide as we can, embrace the potential in ourselves and others.

This Full Moon is the culminating aspect while the Moon is in Capricorn, then the Moon starts what we astrologers call VC, Void of Course. That’s like a free zone. Nothing comes of some things started in that corridor until the moon changes signs. That will be from 3:56 PM to until the Moon enters Aquarius 8:10 PM Pacific. Others speculate there is nothing to stop us. Could be a good time to simply consider things, let your Spirit meander. Blessed be.

Full Flower Blue Moon – Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, Jupiter Square Saturn

Saturday May 21 at 2:14 PM Pacific, 1 Gemini/Sagittarius 14

Full Flower Moon Wesak 2016 Mount Shasta

Exquisite image fitting for Buddha’s Birthday by Karrie Ann of Living Shasta Photography

The date for Wesak, Buddha’s Birthday celebration, depends on which Lunar Calendar you use.

Mercury is Retrograde

May 20 Happy Gemini! This is the Wesak date for most of SE Asia.
May 21 Wesak in INDIA is on the Full Moon 2:14 PM Pacific, 1 Sagittarius 14.

May 22 Mercury turns Direct at 6:20 AM Pacific

Since it falls on a weekend this year, many, including the Mount Shasta group, will hold weekend meditations, have special teachers, ceremony and celebrations. Wherever you are going, get your reservations made right away.

The Sun Gemini, Moon Sagittarius axis deftly handles information gathered community wide, especially from women, and with a handshake across the table incorporates it with a bigger array, community to community! Brainstorming sessions will pay off. The neighborhood scanner Gemini mind is a font of knowledge and past life traveler; Sagittarius the Seeker, loves its meaning and purpose. They spread the good word to as many as possible as far as they can get! Gemini does great newsworthy blogs while Sagittarius teaches and publishes. Gemini is more neutral, while Sag takes it to Church. Together they cover from here to there!

Moon is meeting retrograde Mars in Sagittarius coming back to greet her. For an hour and a half after the Full Moon, they are going to tell great stories! BIG stories, many chapters! Record them for sparking more conversations later. Or. There is going to be some potent interaction, whether it is high with provocative emotion, truth or lies, anger, sex, exercise, accidental, or all of the above! Just be a little careful, ok? Protected sex, be safe, not isolated. One way or the other, it could be inspiring, even if you don’t like it! Some cleanup may be called for.

Mars is headed to its retrograde opposition Sun the next day, May 22 at 4:17 AM Pacific. Essentially the action is on the 21st since it happens so early the 22nd. This opposition always happens when Mars retrogrades. It is at the midpoint between the Rx turn to the Direct turn. Both Mars and Sun are fire planets and in frolicsome signs, be careful not to rush things, be too quick – unwatchful, overdo the exercise, ignore personal intimate protection. Anger, taking a dare, being macho may not pay off. But you may find yourself standing up now when you should have a long time ago! Yes! Doing something new may free your Spirit! Wild sex in the street may make you feel spicy for a long time! :) But remember the warning, no first time sex with someone during Mars Rx. If your desire changes after Mars goes direct, fine. There could be a different Initiation that honors a longing of your Soul.

6:20 AM Pacific the next day, Mercury in Taurus directs, turns forward, ends its retrograde! That means it has been in station, appearing to stand still, since the 18/19th and will continue to until the 25th, a standard 8 day period. What is focused on during those days is well thought out, becomes a part of us, is long held, especially in Taurus. Fertile Taurus seeks a true value. It is patient and sits with it until the living part of it is acquired. Taurus is our bodies; we need to establish a connection, touch. Mercury, mind and hands, is here to do that. Taurus is beauty of all and any kind, grace. It rules the land and land works, the foods we grow on the land, the trees that filter our air. Taurus is gentle, yet super powerful. They usually don’t yell on soapboxes, but they are often long time entertainers, and most certainly are earth movers. It just gets done. If you put your mind (Mercury) to it, what seems impossible, inch by inch, comes to pass.

This is our third Moon with a Grand Earth Trine – Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto! Again, Mercury is retrograde turns direct the day after our Full Moon! It has gone back as far as it is going to, just missing the trine with Jupiter. Jupiter is retrograding away from the trine with Pluto. So, we think about what we could do, but contracts are not signed. We are enlivened, see the details, how it could be, yet it still isn’t the time yet. We carry the ideas with us, and they help shape our intentions, enhance our chances. If the combinations with your chart are good in late June, the ideas will be there ready to fulfill when that Jupiter Pluto trine is made exactly June 26!

5 Days after our Full Moon, Jupiter in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius May 26!

The important core long term outer planet aspect is the Jupiter square Saturn we have been having continuously since they started being close together within 5 degrees Feb 20. There are only two of these aspects. The first exact one was March 23rd. The last of the two is exact May 26, only 5 days after our Full Flower Moon! It fades away to 3 degrees apart by June 15.

Jupiter went direct, forward May 9, only three hours before the TRANSIT of MERCURY! It is now carrying the Message of Light of the TRANSIT of MERCURY, the solar infusion Eclipse of the Sun!

Jupiter expands limitlessly! Saturn archives important information, condenses and sets boundaries. In Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign, Saturn assigns tasks to get the information out in a timely fashion, keeping the information unbiased, clean and true as possible. Jupiter motivates; Saturn protects his commitment like a mountain fortress. Jupiter in Virgo sorts the bits, realizing some are more important than thought to be when first encountered. Saturn in Sagittarius carefully weighs the new perspective, shrewdly prioritizing.

Personally there may be surprising agreements! In Virgo, Jupiter’s ideas are well backed by the results of practical application and often a bit of research. Saturn is more willing than usual to expand step by step in sensible terms, on a well scheduled program. Things can be fixed, integrated, along the way, assuring a strong foundation. Both are optimistic to an extent. A challenge might be to take on only what you realistically can. Jupiter in Virgo is lucky at assessing health concerns, and Saturn in Sag wants a good life plan for long term well being. Diet, exercise, checking on what you have avoided, insurances and healthy housing go with the territory. There may be breakdowns or breakthroughs. Usually both will call for more funds, so be thrifty now to cover what comes up later. See more!

Two Fixed Stars – Algol and Alcyone! Venus is in one of its signs, Taurus. It just passed Algol May 20 at 26 TA 10. Algol brings dramatic statements. It was thought to be the most evil star in the heavens! If you aren’t dead by decapitation you can be a great artist! It is symbolic of losing your head, and that can be by alcoholism, brainwashing, loss of memory or pain, even by so having so much fun you forget yourself, as well as other means! Of course, modern writers and observers are clear that people born at 26 TA live and that day each year is not noted! Algol blinks and disappears 8 hours at a time because it is a binary star, eclipsing itself every 3 days! Pretty unique, and considered a star of transformation. One writer says, ‘…if you dabble in shamanism it can kill you or enlighten you.’ Johnny Depp and his wife both have Venus with Algol, thought by some to have magnetic beauty!

May 20 the Sun just passed and, only 2+ hours before, the Moon just opposed Alcyone 00 GE 00 in 2000. It is the central star of the Pleiades, also called the Weeping Sisters, in other words, something to weep about. “Sickness, disgrace, evil disposition (used to be a term in astrology for homosexuality), murderer or murdered, imprisonment, death by blows, stabs, shooting, beheading or shipwreck..” “The ruthless visionary, a passionate but potentially arrogant person.” The Pleiades, as the daughters of Atlas, who carried the world, Alcyone points to dealing with burdensome matters of weight. While it was in Taurus it was material concerns, substance. Now in Gemini, there are concerns about our intellect, how we think, communicate, our breath of life, connections with the world – political, climate change, the Internet.

Both of these fixed star aspects having just passed still carry possible serious considerations. Perhaps you are going to be more careful, conscientious, attentive. Maybe there are some things to be faced or said, done. It may be uncomfortable, but don’t miss your window. Be loving.

This is a seasonal Blue Moon. It is derived from the older definition of the term – the third of four full moons in a season, this one between the March equinox and the June solstice of 2016.

Full Moons reach out, open doors and gateways.

New Moon – 14 Degree 6 Planet Mutable Cross/Grand Square, Saturn Square Neptune

Saturday June 4, 7:59 PM Pacific at 14 Gemini 53

Meteor Shower Denver

The Metropolis, a grid of earth lights below, echoing the skyways, the Milky Way,  and, in this case, Meteors over Denver – connections to everywhere!

Gemini has this supreme urge to communicate anytime, anywhere, with anyone! It can be microscopic, holding hands with your sweetheart, to extraterrestrial contact with magnificent stars, comets, meteors, beings ~ it’s being infused, imprinted with galaxies of knowledge from times far, far away. Dark New Moon nights are perfect.

Mercury is no longer retrograde, but will finish its Phase 3, tidying up in Taurus, June 7. Only a few short days to go! Bodily matters will be more peaceful, possessions will settle, snafus will untangle and relax, monies have potential after all! June 3, the day before our New Moon, Mercury crosses the TRANSIT of MERCURY, ECLIPSE of the Sun degree the last time, this time going forward. We’ve been thinking about things, and this is a reminder to carry the Eclipse message forward. That cycle is ending as well as the Moon ending her 27 day cycle, merging with Father Sun. Crossing the Transit degree reminds us of our Eclipse exchange, the infusion by Father Sun, the Message. The Moon in Gemini, Mercury’s sign, fully absorbs the upgrade, intuitively getting even more through the lunar conduit. The thread continues, opens the doors to an extended range, another cycle.

Gemini is an information gathering time, and it’s coming from every direction! The Moon and Sun are with Venus! This threesome holds the fourth point with three outer planets in a T Square, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, forming a Mutable Cross, Grand Square! We have six planets spread through Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces! Balancing, charging and changing, the Four Directions, a lot to consider, many options to coordinate! Stay Steady in the Light in the Center. Breathe.

  • Gemini has Venus, Moon and Sun at the SAME degree, 14! Venus is things we want, beauty and adornment, love. Coming from Taurus, it is more concerned with our bodies and now sculpting our minds, our words to attract what’s organically the best for us. The Moon loves her food, and finger foods rule in Gemini! There are things to do, places to go and we’re on the move! She feeds our mind with memories and intuitions, Mothers’ magic, woman power, knows the public pulse, business cycles! The Sunbeams give us Light and hope, lead the way to meet many, share maximum, spread the good word heart to heart!
  • These New Moon three are with the Fixed Star Rigel, at 16 Gemini 50! Rigel is in the constellation Orion, a double star, the 7th brightest in the sky. Rigel has mixed reviews ranging from splendor and honors, a strong and dignified nature, self-confidence, to inconstancy, arrogance, violence, impiety. It offers prosperity in trade and particularly by voyages or abroad, but danger of treachery and poison.It’s said if Rigel is conjunct with the Sun, Moon, as it is here, MC or Ascendant, a quick rise in life is promised on account of a strong, inherent willpower, love of action, and a lucky hand in enterprise, but a continuous battle to retain an acquired position has to be waged. Ironically, this fight at the same time stimulates an increase in vigor. Even in spite of unhelpful aspects, success and reaching the set aim can be secured by this powerful concentration. If however the native is not cautious or has an attack of weakness, failure and disappointments, a fall from success will follow. Be careful and hang onto your socks!
  • Virgo has Jupiter also at degree 14! That’s four planets at the 14th degree, tight and tasty! Jupiter wants the meaning of all that data Gemini has gathered. It wants to give it a direction, a purpose. In Virgo it places the details, the juicy components in consummate order, a system that flows like a beautiful river, with each valuable piece in the most useful position. The North Node is retrograding to meet Jupiter. The North is ascending beyond its old footing, no finer companion to explore with than Jupiter the traveler. Together they will do training and teach life saving methods of good work and great health. They get a little twitted at times, nervous about whether it will all work out, Jupiter sometimes exaggerating his fears, but that same exaggeration is the backside of unquenchable hope and optimism, expansive thinking! It’s doable!
  • Saturn is holding the fort in Sagittarius. You know how it’s sometimes like herding kittens, well Sag is famous for seeking greener grass, a whole lot of fun, and simply enjoys the trip, anywhere! Saturn says ok that’s fine long as we finish this job so we can pay for the trip! Aw, ok, I know, we said we would. What’s next? Bring me that book so I can look up the specs. So Saturn is the time keeper, inspector, build-it-right, responsible one who keeps everyone on task. He knows he can’t keep ’em corralled forever, so tailors the parts to suit the worker, and, hallelujah, it gets done on time even! Great job, well done on everyone’s part!
  • Neptune in Pisces is the dreamer, wants to save the world, or their part of it, if possible. If nothing, they want to make some contribution that makes a difference. If they are working on that particular project, they are on board and even a whimsical Pisces will focus right up and add astonishing insights, saving time right and left! They often know good resources, contacts that will donate to the cause. Don’t expect them to ‘follow orders,’ wisely allow time outs. They can look tough, but know that there is a sensitive Soul in there. Respect them or you may have a consequence later. Ask and really listen. Just because they don’t speak firmly doesn’t mean they don’t mean it or it’s not valuable. Their input is priceless.
  • Back to Gemini. Walkie Talkie! Talking too much may dilute the message or drop down to chit chat. Keep your priorities and pay attention when people glaze over. Take a break and rethink your priorities, stick to ’em. Ask what’s needed next then go get the info. Do some marketing, get the word out! Connect people with like minds and that have info the other needs, then blitz off to the next good source! Get the blog up and running. Take it easy on those Virgos. Once they start working, more talk distracts and slows them down. Just check to be sure they are on course. Give Sagittarians enough to chew on. If they don’t take you seriously, ask them what would make the difference to them. Neptunians won’t parrot back to you. They listen more to the feel of things and often come back with non sequiturs that you triggered. Trust that. They are connected in some subtle way….

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is leaving a Grand Trine in Earth. He almost trined Jupiter, got the closest possible when he turned direct May 22. Good luck, some kind of fame or fortune was just a finger’s length away, could smell it! But nope, didn’t quite happen. But, did make the trine to Pluto the 30th, Memorial Day. Some powerful insight occurred, a contract was signed, a lucrative connection made, healing words spoken, a secret or confidence shared. These may bloom to full understanding as we carry them to and sit with them at the New Moon, new words, new beginnings.

In a different degree set, Mercury sextiles Chiron June 8. Mars is retrograding back to oppose Mercury in Taurus June 9, trine Chiron in Pisces June 12, then inconjunct Uranus in Aries June 18.  Going to be lively!

  • Mercury gets the dialogue going with Chiron. There may be some reminiscing, or a sense of communion. This more patient and commiserating connection will ease the way for Mars opposite Mercury when sparks could fly. But Mars knows some things must be said and encourages Mercury who may have been patient way too long in Taurus.
  • Mars in Scorpio retrograde opposite Mercury in Taurus June 9 could be Vesuvius! Mars has had secret things accumulating, being restimulated, possibly even from the past. Important things. Private relationship matters, sexual, financial power plays, fears of death, fears of life! They can be perpetrator or defender, healer. Mercury in Taurus can be maddenly slow, on purpose or just naturally, or so patient, thankfully calming. They have a strong mind and are hard to push off their spot. Common sense is your best ally. Let them know what’s in it for them that is good for everybody. They may shift then. Know there will be 180 differences. See the values in both sides.Don’t push so hard that people dig in their heels. Both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs. Even though Mars may look like a whirlwind circling, don’t be fooled that they may change. That might just show you they could be nervous, need to be talked down. No condescending. At times Mars can bully, by scaring you with his speed. Speed does not necessarily indicate change either. Take it easy. Think about what can be useful that each has to offer without changing anyone! Chiron is in good position to heal the situation since it trines Mars and sextiles Mercury. Look to a third party to see things through.
  • In the retrograde degrees, Mars trines Chiron while retrograde June 12, and while going forward July 17. Mars in Scorpio will stir Chiron’s cauldron. It’s looking for the keys to healing, to open the threshold to advanced teachings, awaken the Kundalini, know the meaning of life itself. Security, prevention and protection from harm, will be sought and succeeds. Invincibility has limits, whether a more clever foe or simply old age. Clean up, take good care of yourself. See the best therapist. Offer to volunteer, make amends as needed to make good relationships. Be honest in business dealings, no cheating, no manipulating. Seek common goals helpful to all concerned. Set July 17 as a marker for this particular work.
  • Mars inconjuncts Uranus twice in the retrograde degrees, June 18 and July 13. Mars is the planet of Aries, so these two have a spunky link! Mars is the leader, initiator, first one, fighter, defender! He is spontaneous, is the amazing first responder fireman, ambulance medic, 100% on-the-spot intuition! Uranus loves that in-the-moment speed and intelligence! Scorpio is a tad intense, but that suits them all! Uranus loves different and being on the cutting edge. He’s surprised he can be surprised! It may not be a lasting encounter, but is distracting from the usual humdrum and definitely entertaining and enlivening! Mars takes a swipe, and is amazed that Uranus dodges him so easily. Uranus is usually the one who shocks people, so he wakes up too. That was close; he’s not quite as untouchable as he thought! Each is slightly askew, the right place to consider new facets of current events!

In 13 days, Saturn will square Neptune for the 2nd time. This aspect is important because of its long duration. It ran seven months in 2015 at two different times, and will a third period in 2016 for 6+ months. In 2016, it runs from April 13 to Oct 31, with second exact aspect June 17 at 12 Sag, and the final aspect Sep 10 at 10 Sag.

At worst, Saturn in Sagittarius, holds his opinion as law, shutting down any intuitive responses of Neptune. However, Neptune is in his own sign Pisces, doubly potent, can’t be quelled forever. Saturn says that psychic stuff is ridiculous, of course. At best, perhaps, Saturn teaches people who suffer addictions how to get back into the world, giving them realistic examples of successes that are stable, giving them tasks to show them they can do it too! There may be processing of profound griefs along the way. Or, Saturn himself loses faith and it takes the gentle Piscean compassion to understand and reconnect his Spirit. Saturn may have traveled far, variously abandoning himself, others, all his seeking fallen short, to find himself collapsed at Neptune’s feet, ready to hear a truth that was always there. Neptune may say a few words that unlock the Gate of Fears and Saturn walks through the Fire free!

Saturn is always the Builder, looking to the long term. It may be mind, it may be matter. It may be the Temple of Wisdom, or carrying the nomad coals of light. In Sagittarius he is divine protector of knowledge. Pisces is the spiritual seeker, dreamer, intuitive, believer without proof. The spiritual tides wash away karmic debris, soften edges, reduce resistance. Saturn helps collect the ideas, give them focus, bring them to a consortium of useful existence. Neptune inspires; Saturn gives them a home. See more

Gemini is the Breath, the Word of God, since Mercury, Gemini’s planet, always travels closely with the Sun. Venus conjunct both Sun and Moon is giving her blessing and grace.

Full Strawberry Moon, Sun Cancer ~ Summer Solstice!
Mutable Cross, Grand Square ~ Jupiter Trine Pluto!

Monday June 20, 4:02 AM Pacific at 29 Gemini/Sagittarius 33

Full Strawberry Moon

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each support an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brings in Gemini, and Mercury turns forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opens the new cycle that sets up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune is three days preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that, will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! Pray for all Souls. If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be.

Full Strawberry Moon ~
Pluto YOD, Jupiter Bow, Grand Fire Trine!
Tuesday June 2 at 9:19 AM Pacific – 11 Sagittarius 49
Full Strawberry Moon

During Mercury Retrograde, the Full Moon, Gemini/Sagittarius Strawberry Moon, is called the Festival of Humanity by some. It’s purpose is to share the Word and Teachings far and wide! Gemini gathers information and communication skills know how. Sagittarius seeks purpose, the far vision that makes it meaningful, gives focus.

♦ Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Retrograde reviews, upgrades, opens doors from opposite directions, making choices more whole and productive. On the immediate basis it can seem frustrating as things keep changing moment to moment, not settling. Fixed signs (Taurus/Scorpio, Leo/Aquarius) and orderly signs (Virgo/Capricorn) often don’t find this multitude of adjustments comfortable; they like their routines, but stay with it, the results will prove worthy though many people will opt not to sign important papers yet.

Some of those adjustments were front and center when Sun, moving forward, and Mercury in reverse, crossed on Saturday the 30th at 9:56 AM Pacific, or, they had a meeting of the minds. Though moving apart now, they have left an invisible trail of thoughts still influencing decisions.

Sun is getting excited as he approaches Mars, a super athlete combination! Running, tennis, biking may all be in the wind in short volleys. But, the Moon in Sagittarius would like to get some distance going! They want to SEE what’s out there! Mars is a Leader, first, takes the initiative! Mars is a rights fighter, in this case, the pen being mightier than the sword! Gemini/Sag is the great storyteller of a very entertaining chapter-by-chapter mythy moral tale embellished with believable facts that make it seem real. Personal new beginnings are near and dear to your heart!

The Moon is opposite Mars, so be careful of wounding words and conversations. Moon can be a tad self righteous in Sagittarius, and by nature, Mars only does what Mars thinks in a hot minute! Mars can be quick, and if the Sun is provoked in its ego, together they all may regret what can’t be taken back. Lucky for us, Moon in Sag is more forgiving. If you are hair trigger yourself, maybe lay a bit low, avoid giving or getting the bee sting. If it is needing saying, long overdue, maybe it will clear the air; change will be quick! The Sun/’Mars exact conjunction isn’t until June 14 at 8:56 AM Pacific, the day Saturn returns into Scorpio. The Full Moon may set off a situation that lasts until then and then some.

♦ The Full Moon axis is just leaving Neptune in its own sign Pisces as the point of the T Square to the axis. Neptune/Pisces is famous for sensitivity, Sun, Mars and Gemini/Sag not so much. The challenge has been to have compassion, empathy, yet with logic, not be swept into doing things that aren’t in your heart. It will still be tempting, perhaps, to run right over the shy person or push a confused person to agree with you, maybe in the interests of ‘saving time’ or getting another person on your side. But that kind of compliance usually unravels later, so take a deep breath, honor others best you can.

You yourself may have had a recent battle of confusion within you or with someone who has. You may still have doubts what to do. It goes from mystical pandemonium to whether to turn right or left! Surrender or jump on it. Get the exercise or meditate. Talk or be silent. Almost always, the answer is a bit of both. The whole function of a Full Moon is separation of opposites yet assimilation, in short, balance, equality. Having skills to do both gives you all your options!

♦ Because the Sun conjuncts Mars, the YOD with Pluto and Jupiter becomes important. Mars and Pluto are in a tight 1 minute of space inconjunct! They are close with Jupiter only a degree away, Mars quickly to sextile Jupiter exactly on the 5th at 4:38 PM Pacific. Mars and Pluto are warriors, but Mars in Gemini with words and a smile, and Pluto in Capricorn very differently with your paycheck and the law! Mars can speak fervently in Pluto’s behalf or devastate Pluto’s reputation. Pluto can fund Mars’ intentions or take it all away. Pluto in Cap has staying power, but Mars bounces back in air sign Gemini. Better to be respectful allies or just leave it alone if things aren’t working, put your energy elsewhere.

Mars sextile Jupiter in Leo is just plain fun and a wins the race! Both are leaders, Jupiter is confident. Mars in Gemini likes new and clever, while Jupiter in Leo goes for center stage and succeeds! You could be swept along with them, taken in or on a trip of a lifetime! Learning is fast and the risk quite tempting! Pluto in Cap may save you from yourself!

Jupiter inconjunct Pluto may light the fires of Hell as it recently has – Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano, Mexico’s Colima Volcano, plus Nepal’s quake! It can be the glamour story of the century, or fizzle so sadly. Jupiter may be crushed by Pluto in Cap’s skepticism, or vindicated by their recognition of the possibilities! Pluto may be annoyed by Jupiter’s endless stories, yet somehow fascinated at the insane potential and secretly astounded by the actual lucky results. Makes them a believer. Truth and consequences for better and worse.

In addition, Mars and Jupiter are both in exciting aspects to Uranus, the planet of universal change and genius! Uranus is in Mars’ sign Aries, split second fast! Jupiter enhances them both giving super lucky decisions! Mega communications, performances of magnitude. Publish, go public, have a grand opening even though Mercury is retrograde! Many successful world famous businesses have it Rx in their charts. Take the seminar; travel with friends. Get pregnant! Fame and Fortune! Mars will make the sextile with Uranus exactly on the 9th at 0:29 AM Pacific. That means the 8th is the action day unless you work at night. Puts a song in your heart! More on Jupiter super trine Uranus!

Jupiter is the lucky one! Here are the action aspects Pacific times and dates:
x
May 30   9:56 AM    Mercury conjunct Sun
June 2     6:31 PM    Moon trine Jupiter
June 5     4:38 PM    Mars sextile Jupiter
June 8     2:56 PM    Sun sextile Jupiter
June 9     0:29 AM    Mars Sextile Uranus (8th is the day)
June 14   8:56 AM    Sun conjunct Mars
June 14   5:38 PM    Saturn back in Scorpio
June 22   6:43 AM   Jupiter trine Uranus!x

♦ The Jupiter Bow pattern with the Full Moon axis is the whipped cream for the strawberries! The Gemini Sun, as well as Mars, is sextile Jupiter. Sun is the Light, Jupiter theWayshower. Both like to share and teach, strut and play. It’s lucky to be who you are! And Jupiter is Sag’s planet, the sign the Moon is in. It’s a traveling party – on the boat, by train, a caravan. Or it’s a race you will never forget! Moon in Sag is happy go lucky, knows where to go and when. Bring the whole family! Let go the doubts; go for the good.

♦ By a Horary astrology term, Translation of Light, there is a Grand FIRE Trine too! This combination is not nearly in as close in degrees as the Bow, but still a blessing, blessings to come as the planets unfurl like a flower into exact connection with each other! Fire is Spirit personified! Uranus is in first Sign, first Fire sign Aries of Initiation; Jupiter is in Leo, fire sign of the Heart and Love; the Full Moon in Sagittarius is in the sign of the Seer, the great Prophets, the Path. The delight of a new Path with new friends in a new community may fill your Soul.

Be tasty!

Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter Super Trine!
Tuesday June 16 at 7:05 AM Pacific – 25 Gemini 07

Gemini Depp Breathe Quote
Johnny is a June 9, 1963 Gemini and has Mercury conjunct Venus. No surprise he is often quoted and this is one of his quotes.  See his Chart!

Sun and Moon join, Sun infusing Moon with energy, Light, Moon relaying it on to Earth and us. At one degree opposite the Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius, the messages will be profound! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Gemini is considered the sign of the Word of Spirit, the Breath of Life. Sun is all powerful, Moon has her way, sometimes gentling Sun, giving a feminine blend. Things culminate and are celebrated as the cycle ends, a new one begins. At a tipping point, we are deep in shadow, but invested with potential, seeds of renewal, an innocent child quality. This late degree New Moon forms the last aspect while the Moon is in Gemini, leaving us in a Void of Course period, unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Take some moments to rest, steep in the brew. Be thankful for your breath. Prepare to speak from your Heart.

♦ Speedy Mars figures strongly in the Gemini NEW Moon as it did at the Full Moon! The Sun conjuncted Mars Sunday the 14th at 8:56 AM Pacific, and the Moon is exactly with Mars just an hour before the New Moon at 6:06 AM! Mars is an action planet where Gemini is more the thinker. Mars wants to do more than talk! Mars is a champion of the Word, and a superbly quick writer in Gemini. Talent is in the hands and eye! They are observant and the bringer of News and what’s new. They boldly poke about, leafing through anything and everything, discovery at their fingertips. They gather the data to back up what they say, and lead the way to new thinking, so right for a New Moon! Unasked, they are local adventurers, weaving their intelligence through neighborhoods and families. Independent thinking creates a wave of ideas for sweeping change, yet Mars is off on another tack as soon as a seed has taken hold!

♦ Mercury, Gemini’s planet, squares Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces the third and last time. Until it makes the exact aspect, June 23 at 11:09 AM Pacific, and maybe another three days or so, hold off on important irrevocable decisions or ones you can’t afford to have to change later. Mercury is logical, while Neptune goes by insight, spiritual guidance, empathy. Both are good, but they arrive at conclusions differently. Too compassionate and we may be taken advantage of, suffer sadness. Too logical and we may neglect kindness, cause delay as we think things through. Spiritually we may know what we want, and Mercury helps us get there in the real world by telling others about our dreams so others can know how to help us. Confusion and longing make us crazy, but they are natural stages that keep doors open while we are undecided and keep us going even when we don’t know how! See Mercury Retrograde!

♦ Mercury sextiles Venus in Leo. It will hold this aspect until exact for many days since Mercury is moving slowly after turning Direct June 11. The exact aspect won’t be made until July 5 at 1:19 AM Pacific. So research what you will do, but wait to make a decision until a few days after June 23, after the square with Neptune is over. Otherwise, the sweetest loving communications are intended. Appreciation, affection, gifts are given. Time to make pretty. Great design ideas, color choices, lovely remodeling, getting becoming hairstyles. You might pay a little more, but it’s worth it, makes you feel great! Let the breath flow….

Mercury is closely coming trine with the North Node in Libra! Libra is the next air sign, this one of relationships. How we say what’s up makes all the difference. The North Node is where we are a bit shy, still learning to balance with the opposite sign, in this case independent Aries. We need to know the good ways to be independent within relationships, to be ok with difference, be true to ourselves and let others be true to themselves. Trines usually are successful. At worst they are lazy and take things for granted and nothing happens at all. Sigh. Be conscious and take advantage of your opportunity to offer someone your regard.

♦ Jupiter and Uranus are now in the same degree! It is seven-days-close to the final exact super trine with Uranus June 22!!! We have been in it for months. The first was Sep 25, the second March 3. Jupiter enhances, is known for huge growth, expansion, wisdom, seeing the trends of time. Uranus is strange change, enlightened genius, explosions (like volcanoes and lightening), world community, computers and the internet, everything electric, wind turbine energy generators, flight! This is a classic fame & fortune combination. Publishing goes out to the multitudes. Grants and investors can be amazingly generous. Travel is easy and extraordinary at the same time. Research reveals some brilliant cures or incredible information long awaited. Make hay!

June 23, Super Full Moon 2 Capricorn 10
at 4:32 AM Pacific

Super Full Moon June 23, 2013 Astrology Chart

It’s camera time!  This Super Moon, per NASA, it will appear about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a typical Full Moon does.  It is even more super because the time of full moon falls closest to the time of perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth. The crest of the moon’s full phase in June 2013, and perigee, fall within an hour of each other!

This Full Moon is also special because it is so close to Summer Solstice!  Golden Father Sun reaches his zenith, longest day, then pearly Mother Moon glows her most brilliantly of all 2013 in the night sky!  June 25, Jupiter enters Cancer for the first time in 12 years.  We will be looking for truth, growth and abundance on the home front, and for women and children. June 26, Mercury in Cancer Retrogrades until July 20, giving lots of thoughtfulness to preceding events that started from June 10 and along the way to June 26.  Remember carefully, as clearly as you can.  There are big options for change, blessings to be incubated and born.

The Sun/Moon axis, Cancer Sun, Capricorn Moon, makes a Grand Trine, Kite pattern with the planets it is closest to numerically, Saturn at 5 Scorpio, and Neptune in its own sign Pisces, also at 5 degrees!  Saturn has recently made its second exact trine with Neptune June 11, which it is holding within a 1 degree range until the third and last trine July 19.  This Saturn trine Neptune is the underlying configuration throughout this period.

The Grand Trine in Water Signs is a Portal to the inner realms.  Cancer uses its senses of our basic needs, food, shelter, being cared for at our core level, just because we breathe.  Scorpio senses our needs of each other, how we are loved, regarded, valued as an equal, a mate, a co-creator, our alignment with the force of Being.  Pisces, without really thinking about it, gauges the quality of our link with Universal Creation, capacity for Unity of Spirit, perceives a likeness or not of Dharmic Mission.  As these placements are empowered, strengths attained, a cohesive ‘structure’ is formed, giving the ability to imbue its qualities on initiates, as they cross the Threshold.  This walk may take a moment , a lifetime, or more.  Students, we all, have different absorption rates, some drink deeper than others.

The kicker is the Moon in Capricorn at the midpoint between Saturn and Neptune, forming the Kite!  Capricorn wants to see real achievement – numbers, timeliness, return on investment.  It monitors our creations for intrinsic usefulness.  It calls for commitment to and glory of the Soul’s work, Dharma.  Moon wants to nurture the processes, feed not just the body, but the Soul.  Moon intuits our fears and gives solace to the grieving.  No mistake, miss, or wrong turn is grounds for rejection.  She encourages us to stay with it, humble down, do as you can.

The June Full Moon was called the Strawberry Moon by the Algonquin or Rose Moon by Europeans.  Hold your visions as fresh and sweet as luscious summer strawberries for breakfast, and as gentle and beautiful as rose petals throughout the day and sprinkled on your bed before retiring.  Breathe deeply.

Cancer new Moon July 8, at 0:14 AM Pacific!

Cancer 2013 New Moon Astrology Chart

Jupiter is now in Cancer, the Moon’s own sign, about to make the Grand Trine with Saturn and Neptune July 17 to 19!  The other big blue triangle, trine, in our chart is being made by our NEW MOON and Mercury, with the Moon’s North Node, and Chiron!  Both big blues are linked at the top of the chart by Pluto, the green sextile lines going to it, forming a Kite pattern.  Pluto is midpoint Saturn and the North Node in Scorpio and Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, and is in close separating opposition with the New Moon.

Cancer is noted for feelings; Mercury next to the New Moon in Cancer, and in Cancer also, is noted for logic.  It’s a logical feeling!  :)  Being New, this feeling springs from the rich accomplishments of the old cycle, gives inspiration to move on successfully.  For many, this will be the first New Moon after graduating.  The dust has settled a bit, looking for jobs, places to live.  Some Moms are facing the empty nest; families are making adjustments.  Summer is classic move time.  This year’s graduates may do some phenomenal things with the Moon just past Pluto of power and wealth.  There have been healings, accurate insights to purpose.  If you have been searching for family, or wanting to start one, take a bold step in that direction.  Mars stands alone in Gemini, but has courage in communications, and can lead the way through the maze.

Expectations and cultural attitudes about working women are changing.  24.3% are now making more than their husbands.  In about 30 percent of newly married couples in 2011, the wife earned more, versus just 24 percent of all married couples. Take advantage of new opportunities offered.  Do things just a tad differently than your Mom, or Dad.  Cancer is the number one sign of scholarship, life long scholars, in fact, and business!  Get to school; go into biz!  Give it a go and learn, learn, learn!  Being a teacher is now just one of many options available.  Forbes says jobs in health care, business and computer science pay women the most.

Venus is just separating a trine with Uranus as the base of an Iron Butterfly (trapezoid) pattern.  The crossing purple lines extend to the points of the Butterfly.  Winds are blowing crosswise.  Hanging onto the seductions of the past will slow you down.  Bright new supportive friends will get you a fresh start, filled with potential!  Acknowledge, root out or learn to live with, obsessive patterns.  Get some enjoyable exercise and oxygenate your brain!  You will feel lighter and flying has its merits!
