Full Thunder/Hay TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

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

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

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Since Mars doesn’t complete its entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

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

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

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Inconjunct Pluto Ecliptic Point!

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

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

Leo Crescent New Moon Aug 11 2018 Solar Eclipse Josephine Wall

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

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

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

FULL Buck/Thunder Moon!
New Moon!   

Full Buck/Thunder Moon – Pluto, Mercury Midpoint!
Wednesday July 1, at 7:20 PM Pacific – 9 Capricorn 55

Cancer Summer Moon Yukon Bike Cycle Tour

Sockeye Cycle’s Klondike Canoe & Bike Tour

July 2015 has TWO FULL MOONS! The SECOND July Full Moon is a BLUE Moon in Leo/Aquarius on July 31, 3:43 AM Pacific, at 7 Aquarius 56. At our first July Full Moon, the Buck/Thunder Moon, some places Bucks are growing their antlers for rutting season, the time to fight, make thunder for a mate, to make a family. Cancers are phenomenal parents, formidable protectors, staunch community members. Other places there is thunder, but most places it’s just plain summer magic coming true!

♦ A lot of the aspects this Full Moon are what we astrologers call separating, meaning the faster planet has already passed/leaving the slower planet. The Sun has separated from Mars, Venus from Jupiter, Jupiter from Uranus, and Sun and Moon are just past the trine/sextile with Neptune.

1. Sun separating Mars The Sun did conjunct frisky Mars, but it was back when they were both in Gemini on June 14. It would appear this aspect just happened in Cancer, they are only 4 degrees apart, but Mars moving more slowly than Sun didn’t get into Cancer until the Sun was much further ahead in Cancer. So this is kind of a fading phantom aspect. Close, thinking of what could have been….

2. Venus started a 7 degrees close time with Jupiter June 19! It is in a BlessingWay for 12 days! It is there today for Summer Solstice and Father’s Day, and tomorrow for the last Jupiter super trine Uranus. It makes a Grand Fire Trine June 30, Moon, Uranus, Venus/Jupiter! The Grand Trine starts 9:01 AM, finishes 11:18 AM, so the time frame is tight. The exact conjunction is July 1. Be sure to look for it in the night sky June 30!

Venus was with Jupiter only hours before the Full Moon, at 0:51 AM Pacific. Most of us slept through that, so the active time for it was the afternoon/evening of June 30. A more profound beauty, bigger expenses/a raise, love of a lifetime, speaking from the heart, entertainment with a purpose, a gift of travel tickets, the urge to run away, you got published or accepted into a special program! Time for gratitude.

3. Jupiter made the super trine Uranus June 22, but we are still in the glow until July 21. See Post!

4. Sun and Moon are still closely trine/sextileNeptune in Pisces! This is the most immediately preceding aspect, a BOW pattern! Sun trined Neptune 2:10 PM Pacific and just imbued Neptune with a splash of Light, a super charge, a flow of golden energy to light the circuits. All Light and all Water are connected planetwide. Feeling prime, like a LightHouse, Neptune has the strength to have the compassion needed for sending this Beacon to call the troops, to Light their day and night, to have courage to carry on.
X
5. Moon sextiled Neptune at 6:59 PM Pacific only 21 MINUTES before the FULL MOON! Moon in Capricorn with Pluto could be obsessively sensible, where Neptune in Pisces was born not to be! Soul and Spirit is what matters to Neptune. Godless money without love or integrity, is a sorry thing. But, if a person is an addict, the nurturing Moon, with healer/detoxer Pluto, in reassuring discipline of dependable Capricorn may turn the tables to a better life. Sometimes being tough is compassion. Moon’s major job is to nurture no matter what, no matter how repulsive, dangerous, contagious, forsaken. She sometimes succumbs herself, but more often, she thrives doing what she is blessed to be able to do.

Separating aspects tell the tale of what happened before. They are the foundation wisdom we carry forward. They are what influence current decisions. What we like we keep in our lives, part of our toolkit, inspiration. We let some things fade away, as they should, though even a faint residue may continue to trigger old responses at times. Cancers are noted for their memory, the importance of their history. So before this Full Moon, pay attention to the preceding events and do your very best so what you carry forward supports you in your growth.

What is upcoming is the Moon conjunct Pluto, Mercury MIDPOINT sextile Jupiter and Venus/Uranus!

♦ Moon to Pluto is the most powerful aspect of this Full Moon! In Capricorn it is a wee bit of a challenge because the Moon is the planet of Cancer, the sign opposite Capricorn! An integration, perhaps a respectful partnering could be brilliant. If Cancer has been too dependent, impressed by power, it may call for a need not to be hypnotized. There may be a potent merger, an understanding that leaves everyone breathless in its intensity. With the Moon and Sun opposite, the feminine is separated as far as it can get from the dominant masculine, given a chance to find its way on its own. Or, perhaps, if Pluto is an ally, there may be a secret passage, guided by an Elder of impressive strength. The Sun being in the Moon’s sign Cancer may surprise everyone with a more feminine way of being than expected. The business at hand may take some time, but be worth the effort.

With Saturn back in Scorpio, he too is related to this Full Moon since he and Pluto in Capricorn are now again Mutual Reception, in each other’s signs. Seniors, ancient places, ice, minerals, stones are of an essence. Research, healing, psychotherapy, detoxing are needed so profoundly to clear our ways for future change. Disabilities, financial distresses, addictions, prisons need new ways of treatment. We wont solve these matters overnight, but we can pay attention and ask for what we want, do what we can. We have until September 17. Saturn won’t be back in Scorpio for another 29 years after that. This is a powerful opportunity; don’t miss the window.

Mercury sextile Jupiter and Venus is downright blessed and super lucky! They are happy to hear Mercury’s ideas and Jupiter in Leo can expand the principle, extend the vision further forward in time. Venus adds her touch, a beautiful way with the words, a sweetness from the heart. If there has been trouble, make amends. Turn in the application. Act as if you are what you want to be! Tune up your colors, use a loving tone of voice, add a smile. Ask for what you want. Whether you get it or not doesn’t matter. You will be heard and that may open doors you never even thought of! It’s a gift!

Mercury sextile Uranus is pure genius! Mercury is potently in its own sign Gemini, the Word. Clever, mirroring ideas back and forth, logical, quick, master of diversity, funny! Uranus is in Aries, the Initiate, pure instantaneous intuition! Uranus is the Awakener, the evolutionary ChangeMaker! It is your friend, or part of community or worldwide organizations. Flight, space travel, the internet all take us places where camaraderie begins. Together we support each other in healing, finding new ways.

♦ Mercury at the MIDPOINT means it links Jupiter/Venus and Uranus! If Jupiter is too opinionated or raw with the truth, Mercury is quick to explain how the idea is valuable. Venus chimes in with a softening phrase but maintains the point. If Venus is too sugary or selfish, Mercury can put in some reasoning that we all might deserve a bit more and here’s how. If Mercury is all facts and figures, information ad infinitum, Jupiter and Venus in Leo add the fun, beauty and heart, put it in perspective to a longer plan. After all, there is always more! If Uranus gets bored, gets a little ‘strange’ and scares the populus, the others concoct a party of extraterrestrial proportions, everyone has fun, the pressure is relieved, and things get back to business.

Add to that, Mercury is also square Chiron in Pisces. There are supernatural mysteries that will never be solved. Sometimes it’s good to know that is so. It’s ok to just let certain things simmer on the back burner. Mercury in Gemini does like neat logic, but musing can be equally entertaining. What is our purpose, how is that growing with us, always alive and changing even when we don’t understand it? There are reminders on both sides – be logical and stop ‘wasting time,’ be mystical and don’t forget compassion. Sometimes the Great Mystery needs a champion to explain its workings. You can’t see meditation, but it can be explained so you can do it….

The blessing of a Full Moon is the Light. The Sun and Moon are in consideration of each other. They are separated for greater perspective, less influence, to be more themselves without the other’s demands or unspoken expectations. Sometimes they just bring a renewed awareness of the other and a new chapter begins. This Thunder Moon Father Sun is in Mother Moon’s sign Cancer, and Mother Moon is in Father Time’s sign, Capricorn. There is a softening of Father Sun’s beams, a bending down to tend the Baby. Mother Moon is strengthening her stand, ever so more aware of cycles and her place in our culture. She is strong, and lends her gentleness to the Ancient One, the Guide who so often stands alone when we arrive at the Crossroads. Keep the Light ON.

New Moon – Cancer Stellium, Pollux the Immortal Twin!
Wednesday July 15, at 6:24 PM Pacific – 23 Cancer 14

Cancer Full Moon Woman Cradle Sleep

Rock me in the cradle. Mama Moon is so comfy in her own sign, loving with Father Sun. She IS Woman, sweet, mystical, humming a lullaby. Perfect reflection….

Loving her baskets and bowls, Cancer gathers precious herbs and foods, treasures and keepsakes. Father Sun accepts her gifts, listens to the whispers and stories along the gathering Path. She accumulates a special wisdom from steeping in feelings of the ones she feeds and heals. She spreads her loving like a blanket over a newborn babe.

A New Moon finishes one cycle, begins a new one. Give gratitude for your achievements these last days. Take a deep breath, be still, start where you are, strong in what you have created. Open your Spirit to another cycle, this one centered in your life now, and the knowing you have from past lives, from the Matriarchy of all Childhood, Maiden and Motherhood, Womanhood.

♦ This Sun and Moon are most closely allied in semisextile with Jupiter. Jupiter is the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It seeks the meaning of things. Food must be more than just for the body, it has to feed the long view of our purpose. When Cancer wants to stay home and dwell on things, as it sometimes should and does well, Jupiter wants to get out and take a look about, get some perspective, seek more opinions. It makes things bigger than life! Jupiter means well and has the best intentions, so try not to get your feelings hurt when they blurt those blunt words. Oops. But they redeem themselves with expansive ideas for your business or teaching your children. In Leo, Jupiter has a big heart and loves sports, so let them take you with them, especially if you want to lose a little weight!

♦ Moon and Sun are trine Saturn who is back in Scorpio. Saturn in Scorpio is rather a serious chap, but he’s been in Scorpio before, for a couple of years, so we are used to his antics now. Saturn rules Capricorn, Cancer’s opposite sign, but the favorable trine connection brings things more into a useful arrangement. Cancers don’t shirk their work, and Saturn expects things to get done with precision and in a timely fashion. Scorpio is intense, even obsessive, so you can imagine what can get accomplished! All these are interested in finances and investments. Parental and lover relationships will be vetted. Diet and psychological health will come under scrutiny.

♦ The New Moon is at 23 degrees Cancer 14, the fixed star POLLUX is at 23 Cancer 13, only ONE MINUTE apart! Castor and immortal Pollux were the twin warrior brothers of the constellation Gemini, the sign Cancer. Various things are written about Pollux, most of them associated with Mars. Most indicate challenge yet strength to overcome. Cancer is not known as a fighting sign, nor is the New Moon usually. Yet they are known to give their lives to defend their household, mates, and especially children. This will not be a casual New Moon. It’s not just added spunk, it will have teeth. Pollux is complicated….

  • It is the star of writing, the emotional/passionate writer, has the gift of contemplative speculation, is subtle, crafty.
  • Known for audacity, being spirited, brave, having powerful strength and ferocity, is fierce defender.
  • It has super athletic ability, love of sport. It is favorable for martial artists, boxers, fighters and warriors, It is helper if in peril on voyages at sea, blessed with immortality.
  • When bad, it has dignified malevolence, is brutally cruel and tyrannical, quarrels, rash, rape committed or suffered, the “Heartless Judge,” decapitation, calamity. Riches and honors are often followed by disgrace, and possible imprisonment for embezzling.
  • It can be a person misusing his energy or others deceiving him and fate playing him some cruel tricks, a painful journey.
  • On the Lunar side, vulgarity is displeasing, there may be ill-will for or by women, Mother’s honor and reputation could temporarily suffer.
  • Mars rules the head, so be careful. Pollux is considered bad for eyesight, bring injuries to the eyes and face. Be careful with toxins, poisons.

Clearly, these warnings are not for the faint of heart, nor to be taken lightly. Maybe they seem melodramatic. Hopefully nothing dire will happen at all! To the credit side, if the energy is used wisely and you keep your wits about you, your efforts can pay off handsomely.

There are higher principles at work as well. Since the twins were mortal and immortal, there is the coming metaphysical consciousness of knowing how the human and divine are both within us, what it is to be human and divine at the same time. There is an explosive dark shadow side and a poised civilized side. This polarity, allows a comprehensive range of observations, an outstanding synthesis of solutions, a partnership of talents.

Along with the strong Pollux factor, also in Cancer, Mercury and Mars could be ferocious, or at least are verbal defenders of home and family! They are censored by the opposition with Pluto in Capricorn. No matter how emotional or impassioned, there are still certain procedures and timing one must abide by. Since all three planets are at 14 degrees, there is simply no avoiding this potency. Words will be spoken, some not easily forgiven if ever. Others will make their mark and give us a lifetime of guidance. If challenged, take plenty of time outs. Be prepared by backing up what you have to say with science or data from reputable sources. And don’t let yourself be overwhelmed or taken in. Say you will think about it and get back to them when you say you will.

Now another side of that coin is you or they are fired up about something that should have been taken care of long ago, maybe even centuries! By reaching out for funding, asking that research be done, you may find professional respected support for your cause. Many who have been sitting back may reach a tipping point and things finally move forward like a tide. Congratulations.

A background aspect is Moon and Sun have been trining Chiron. Chiron is mythologically related to the Centaurs, Sagittarius, half horse, half human, quite powerful, a wiseman. Chiron was the king of the centaurs, yet he suffered an interminable wound because of an offense to one of the gods. He learned medicine, became a teacher, gave his life for another to end his agony. Now in the sign Pisces, this story of surrender and saving fits well. Moon and Sun have been seeking deeper wisdom to share onward, to nurture their family or anyone in need.

Magi astrologers say Chiron is THE marriage and business planet. As I have tracked it in relationships, I agree. And excellent partnerships are certainly a foundation for business success. There are opportunities with our New Moon to trust the intuition we have been having to guide us. Cancer knows practical things that affect all the commodities in our lives. PIsces carries the dream, the Vision that leads us to the glory of our Spirit.

May it go well with you.

Summer New and Full Moons!

NEW MOON Celebrates Jupiter in LEO!
July 26 at 3:42 PM Pacific! It’s at 3 Leo 52

See  FULL Moon

This will be a grand New Moon, 2nd of three in a row, with the newly minted Jupiter in LEO! Mars has newly joined Saturn in Scorpio as of July 25, the day before! New beginnings are here, and we’re not used to the changes yet, but probably not minding them either. Jupiter is in Leo only once every 12 years, and Mars has had a long 7 month stint in Libra, so many are delighted to move along!

The Sun squared Mars Friday the 18th, so that hot challenge is behind us. The Moon squared Mars, maybe dramatically, 8:29 AM, just hours before the afternoon New Moon. Sometimes that square brings rousing feelings and misadventures. Be careful with knives, fire, or sex :) in the kitchen! It won’t be a morning for sleeping in either! These aspects preceding the New Moon will be motivators for our intentions and planning. We want more vitality, directed potently, safely. We want to let go of past perjuries, hurtful attitudes. Time to clear the deck, upleval our reasoning, exceed our ancestors. Perspective means so much. The education adventure is a big part of the answers.

Building trust, finding faith, courting loving joy are teasers and treasures worth the gamble. Travel about, widen your vision, open your heart. Volunteer to get places you want to go. Listen with big ears, share your story – the true deep one that makes you who you are. But also, no revealing what’s not yours to tell when it involves others.

Backdrop for this New Moon is the 1 degree Saturn, Uranus, Chiron set. Saturn made a very close 8 minutes (of space) inconjunct with Uranus the day before the Sun entered LEO, July 21! They whispered to each other. Though incompatible planets, they are in Mars signs, Aries and Scorpio, so have a guarded, careful camaraderie. Saturn favors a working routine, while Uranus is a born rule breaker! Uranus is in Aries, the upstart and innovator, while Scorpio subtly brings the Lamb to bay, seducing it toward the goal it wants to share. The lamb may be coy, but Scorpio and Saturn are astute at waiting for those perfect moments of capture. Working together could be outstandingly powerful as the old fuddy-duddies tap the excitement of stunning changes!

Saturn, the Master Guide, is also trine Chiron in Pisces, the Healer. Saturn wants to see the vision well done, the very best. Chiron in Pisces knows where the fault lines are, and how to bridge the gaps, fill the Spirit. Saturn helps Chiron focus, while Chiron has insights that take them both to new heights. Relationships can be profound and long lasting.

Aug 1 Venus in Cancer moves in to complete the Grand Water Trine (blue) with Saturn and Chiron! Their work together is blessed, made beautiful and attractive. The value there is nurtured. Grace and a feminine touch buffers any rough edges. Projects emphasized by the New Moon, and of its nature, will bear fruit. Family matters may sync up. This time what your Mother says/said will likely work sweetly!

FULL RED SUPERMOON!
August 10 at 11:09 AM Pacific – 18 Aquarius 02  

Second of three-in-a-row SuperMoons! Bigger and brighter! Appears red through ‘any sultry haze.’

Moon Aquarius and Sun LEO have been kindly kissed and zapped by Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Many people read the Moon as our past, but Uranus is a planet of the future’s Future! Nothing old or slow about it! Yet Mama Moon is her family’s protector and nurturer, usually conservative. So some blending here, like the new kitchen gadget that saves time and does a good job. That’s ok. LEO enjoys the show, especially if that smoothie is for them!

Another little item is the matter of detachment. Aquarius/Uranus is cool to remote at times. LEO wants justifiable attention, but Moon can’t have you just running off from home. Wait! Wait! Yet, in Aquarius, sign of freedom, there are times home is overwhelming and a getaway is just the right thing to do. There are times the Lion just has to fend for themselves, besides, fans can be so tiresome…. Just relax and go to the spa. Getting some distance gives you time to just be yourself, think, let go of expectations, refresh.

Uranus in Aries just spritzes and showers Light like a firecracker sparkler! It’s a Light show with a 1000 ideas a second! Excited and infused, it wakes up our synapses and wrinkles the laundry! Gives Zig Zag new meaning! Record your insights, some of them are Divine and in spite of perceived crazy diversity, may clump together with unheard of results!

The Full Moon axis is restrained by Saturn! It was just in an exact serious TSquare, 90 degrees of challenge! The Sun squared Saturn a tiring week’s worth, maybe waiting, Aug 3 to Friday the 9th. Either we are worn down and not careful, or defenses are worn down enough so we can finally hear! Moon squared Saturn just 1 1/2 hours before our Full Moon, oh so sadly reminding us of the challenges and likely unfinished business. Even though we are frustrated with being careful, minding our manners is a must, otherwise, there will be a price to pay. Respect is a necessity. Offenses add up. Being flippant or unempathetic about someone else’s feelings may become a scene with painful results. A good laugh with love could be carefully done, and relieve the tension. But do stand up if there is abuse. Get help if you can’t do it alone.

The New Moon Saturn inconjunct Uranus, trine Chiron backdrop is fading but not forgotten! Saturn has been doing its best to harness those Uranian kilowatts! But as we all know, some things just weren’t meant to be completely harnessed. There is always an escapee here or there. Serious Chiron healing has occurred. Saturn has used time well and we are seeing results after all even when we thought we screwed up. Work and business have solid options. Relationships are stabilizing. Health is being tracked with steady improvement likely, or letting go when that time has come.

August 14, the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is exact. This SuperMoon helps illuminate that awareness. Both Jupiter and Neptune are going for the far reaches of existence! Jupiter in Leo takes the big journey; Neptune in its own sign Pisces goes as far as the Soul can see! They are believers of magnitude. The LEO heart loves its way along even when there is great disparity, an unlikely companion, against the odds. Leo’s gift to teach takes others with them on this huge journey of the exploration of the Tree of Life. Pisces knows when it sees a worn out traveler and gathers them to the feet of God and the Angels, leads them to the meditation Ashram to rest and recenter. The Visions are another journey of inspiration, often a lifetime’s worth! As knowledge is gained, adjustments keep us on the spicy course, at the leading edge of Creation!

Full Moon Buck

NEW MOON
June 27 at 1:08 AM Pacific! It’s at 5 Cancer 37

See  FULL Moon

Our New Moon is just past the sweet touch of Venus! The scent lingers, still enticing, we don’t forget. Kind words, an invitation, a gift. Maybe you found a great giveaway book in a free box along your walk.

We have planets in all three water signs! Our New Moon is in Cancer with Jupiter. Saturn is still strengthening his formidable powers in Scorpio. Neptune is at full power in his own sign Pisces, along with healer Chiron. So much intuition here, there is no hope to fool anyone. Perfect for artists, visionaries, investors, investigators and caretakers.

Our New Moon is also magically trine Neptune! Both Cancer and Pisces are deeply compassionate signs. This combination is not just psychic, but spiritual. Children, parenting, homes, the Feminine, are truly seen as sacred. There is nothing ordinary about it. Choose dwelling places, where you sleep, wisely. Mercury is still retrograde, 4 more days, it’s worth the wait to delay until a few more days after it goes Direct.

New Moon Cancer knows about cycles, what women and children need, how people just need an arm around them sometimes with no chit chat, just a sharing of feelings. Business may take a short breather. New Moons are dark, more within than without. Walk your property, your home. See what would free your Spirit if it were taken care of. Do you need some support? Some materials? Is sentimentality holding you up? Or is it just comfortable and the scale hasn’t tipped yet? Think on how too much stuff may be blocking you from moving forward and you don’t even realize it. If you didn’t have it, you might move, but you won’t move until it’s gone? You see the problem.

The 16th and 17th Degrees are active in what the Magi astrologers call an INVINCIBLE FORTRESS Pattern! See the two purple lines crossing each other? That’s double inconjuncts connected by a less than degree red line opposition of Mars and Uranus – sparks will fly, shakeups no surprise! The purple inconjuncts are connected above by a dark blue trine line. That’s our Saturn trine Chiron that is still in the wind, to be exact again August 5. Healing will be steady and quiet. The inconjuncts link and adjust between the 4 planets, sliding pieces back and forth across the board. Three of the four planets are outer planets, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus. Fire-breathing Mars, the fourth, is the young whippersnapper, an agile, powerful dancer! It picks up the tempo, introduces new collaborators, quickly soothes and smooths.

Fixed Star Rigel! All these planets at 16 and 17 are in activation with Rigel at 16 Gemini 57. Rigel is one of Orion’s stars. According to astrology Vivian Robson (a man), it brings about benevolence, honor, wealth, glory, fame, and inventive and mechanical abilities. When it is not well aspected, the individual may be reckless and foolhardy. Mars and Uranus, snappy mechanical and electrical planets are in good connection with Rigel. Maybe time to buy a new fangled car. Saturn and Chiron are decidedly NOT! Saturn tries to stop all that Gemini frolicking, and Gemini loves seeing how much they can tease the old goat! A quick goat kick might end the party. Don’t tamper with your elders. Yet, Saturn is impressed by Gemini’s quick cleverness. Could put them to work! Chiron in Pisces understands all too well, but Gemini doesn’t get it. Pisces remains a mystery mere words will never define. But if they are on the same page, Gemini could become Pisces’ expert representative.

Mercury is Retrograde 4 more days! It is famous for changing its mind and circumstances changing. Don’t make any promises you can’t keep! Waiting is good.

FULL BUCK/THUNDER, SUPERMOON!
July 12 at 4:25 AM Pacific – 20 Capricorn 03  

About this time, bucks begin growing their antlers, kinda like teething, they are very sensitive. And in some areas, thunder storms shake your windows!

Not only is this a Full Moon, but the first of three SuperMoon Full Moons! It is unusually close to the time of month when the Moon makes its closest approach to the Earth – called its perigee. This near coincidence between a full moon and lunar perigee will mean that this full moon will loom unusually large and bright in the night sky. Can’t wait!!!

T Square with Mars The axis of the Full Moon lies just about 90 degrees from Mars, making Mars the T point planet, emphasized. Mars reacts instantly, like first responders, to challenging situations. It’s willing to fight for what’s right by their book. Mars is excited to try new things, and leads others quickly to new positions! Sometimes they get you started when you had been hesitating. Of course, there are times you can’t believe you did that, but most survive, and it did open a few doors! If you dared once, good chance you will keep trying!

Venus trine Mars, Gemini to Libra! This puts Venus in harmony with one of its own signs, and in a kind of opposition because Mars rules Venus’s opposite sign Aries! Yays and nays! Venus also rules Mar’s neighbor sign Taurus. Mars wants fast and Venus takes her time. Mars may dance around her, to her delight, but she might be dodgy too, and waits ’til Mars tires then gets her way, or she loses him. But in Gemini, she speaks pretty words, and likely enchants him. He is in Libra after all, and wants to make a connection, will do more than usual to accommodate, show his sweet side, consider other points of view. Could be quite saucy….

The Moon is inconjunct Venus while Sun semi sextiles Venus. This is both a little askew and sideways. Moon knows how to do sideways, and Sun in Cancer always has an eye to the side. In this case, there is an incoming message, a temporary hold as Capricorn deciphers, Cancer invites them to dinner, Capricorn decides if it is mere frivolous entertainment, or has long term merit. Fun to watch no matter how it goes. Cancer is intuitive and always has its intention on protecting the household and loved ones. At minimum it is a diversion, and you may go off your diet.

Mercury, in one of its own signs, is at 29 degrees Gemini, crosses into Cancer at 9:45 PM Pacific that same evening. To Mercury, part of the message is critical. It must be heard to finish its mission, seal the deal before going into Cancer. A crucial piece of information needs to be exchanged, likely about a brother or sister, maybe a neighbor. Be open to take care of business for the best of all. Could be all it takes is just being listened to. Put on your ears.

Jupiter, also at 29 degrees, is enjoying his very last four days in Cancer, enters Leo July 16. Jupiter rules the sign Sagittarius, the sign opposite Gemini. Sag wants to have meaning and purpose, a plan to get there. Having a secure family and home situation makes for a confident expression in your community. Do what you can in these 4 days. Let Mother Moon show her Light on what needs to be taken care of in this transition. Have a steady foundation, Be safe as houses. Have gratitude for the table before you, or make it so.

This Moon is a final blossom, at the high point of the lunar cycle, celebrating the culminations of Mercury’s annual cycle, and Jupiter’s 12 year cycle!
