Feb 3 Neptune into its own sign Pisces for 13 years until March 2025. Neptune takes 168 years to orbit, so only those of us living now get to experience the potency of this magic!  Neptune and Chiron have been traveling together since 2008.  Chiron is about two times as fast as Neptune, so now will be moving on, leaving Neptune behind, though both will be in Pisces for the next six+ years.

Neptune first entered Pisces back on April 4, 2011, jump started by the amazing Aries Stellium!  See the chart!  It retrograded back into Aquarius, finishing up support group matters, realigning finances, now Neptune is on his way, no going back!

Don’t ever think of Neptune, or its sign Pisces, as a lack luster planet or sign!  They quiver with life!  Ocean water is their element, and it takes power to meet power, or you die.  Intuition is prime.  The ability to morph, act, make music, transform themselves and others, is beyond words.  It takes strength to know when to retreat, to rest, be in recovery, to do it.  It is work to meditate, to live spiritual tenets, keep faith when the world is falling.

It’s from life generated in your own personal primordial tide pool, to gliding the silvery sails of Spirit!  It’s living  in colonies with your brethren, touching, close as sea anemones on a rock, bunks in ships at sea, monks in a monastery.  It is swimming at exquisite depth, total immersion, prayer/meditation, 100% tuned in, safely alert to danger, transformation possible!  Being swept away tsunami style, or still at the moment of tide’s turn, highs and lows, advance and retreat.  Sleep and dreams, daydreams, waking visions.  There is a terrific amount of involvement – fishing industries, boatyards and watercraft sales, ocean sports, retreats and spas, cruises – floating cities, ocean’s edge tourist towns with parties, music, drink, theatre.  Other places, some beaches, islands, are remote, untouched, one can be alone, time stands still, suspended.  Imagination is set free, visions accessed.  Some come gradually with each cleansing of life’s tide; some come whole in complete understanding, an insight, the Gate is open, the Threshold crossed.  Mythically, there are Mermaids and Magicians.  There are whole skies full of stars at night with no land in sight; you can hear the sound of your own thinking.  Close your eyes………

Each of us, in turn, will be touched, as Neptune goes through the degrees, one time activating one planet, then another, until it does them all.  What we call the Mutable signs, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, will be activated most strongly, perhaps confusion at first, but stirring  new options.  Fellow water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, may take things in stride, flowing with advantages that may have seemed hidden.  Leo and Libra will be nudged and niggled, peripherally, but perhaps too busy socially to pay the attention it may be worth.  Capricorn and Taurus, could do some good business incorporating Piscean talent and products, events.

PART 2, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights! 

Retrogrades, Chiron’s New Pattern, Six Eclipses, Occultations, Planetary Extremes, Super Moons, Moon Void of Course, Chinese Year of the Rabbit!

Some of these you will definitely want to mark on your calendar, be aware of, plan ahead for! So, with your appointment book/calendar in hand….

Retrogrades Few  The usual outer planet retrogrades, no Mars or Venus retrogrades, Mercury 3 times as usual – Mar 30 to April 23 in Aries, Aug 2 to 26 in Leo/Virgo, and Nov 23 to Dec 13 in Sagittarius.

Chiron’s new pattern, retrograde degrees start overlapping each other. That means sometimes a planet in your chart may be activated 5 times rather than only the 3 times as in the past. The only other planets that do this are Pluto and Neptune. So their activations can, at times, be dense, and intense, repetitive, taking 3 years – the year before they are exact and the 2 years they are exact. If they activate planets in very close degrees, more than one planet at a time, in your chart, it can be intense indeed, complicated, at those times. If they activate a string of planets in your chart one after another, issues can cascade, one to the next, for years and years. You live through things longer than you would ever have thought possible. These are those lawsuits that go on and on, health matters that frazzle your Spirit, children that don’t get over things and have trouble growing up, couples that fight for years never-ending. If you are in such a sequence, get support, see your part in things, get informed, take especially good care of yourself. Call me for a reading, I’ll check for you.

SIX Eclipses in a year happens every 4.5 years or so, and we have a Unique Dark Moon!  Four of the six 2011 eclipses are Metonic returns of the eclipses of 1992, repeating on the same dates and degrees. The other two repeat the date and degrees of the New Moons! While many eclipses repeat at 19-year intervals, some do not. Eclipse Frequency

Jan 4 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 13 Capricorn, same day as Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces!
June 1 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 11 Gemini
   Jupiter enters Taurus, sextiles Neptune between the 6.1 and 6.15 eclipses, all of them preceding Summer Solstice!
June 15 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 24 Sagittarius
July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon 9 Cancer
July Two New Moons, July 1 & July 30! Call the second New Moon of July what you will! Dark Moon, Black Moon, Secret Moon, Spinner’s Moon, Finder’s Moon. The second one of the month is considered especially potent for magical practice.
Two eclipses during Mercury Retrograde! 
      Nov 23 Mercury Rx
      Nov 24 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 2 Sagittarius, on ThanksGiving Day!

      Dec 6 Jupiter sextile Chiron 2nd time
      Dec 10 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 18 Gemini
      Dec 13 Mercury Direct

Occultations are Eclipses, just not Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in conjunction in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.

Planetary Extremes, March Lineup!
Jan 3 Perihelion, Earth closest Sun; July 4 Aphelion Earth farthest from Sun.
Mar 9 Mars Perihelion, every 2 years
Mar 16  Mercury Perihelion, annual
Mar 17 Jupiter Perihelion, every 12 years!  This is the big one that is super charging 2011, the Aries Stellium!  Click here for more!
Mar 19 closest Perigee, Moon to earth; Apr 2 is the furthest Apogee, Moon’s distance from Earth. Quakes, volcanic eruptions, major storms, high tides are often at perigees. Apogees can be calm to the point of malaise.

6 Super Moons, one Extreme, 100% +

Moon Void of Course April 4 to Aug 4, as Neptune enters Pisces, no outer planets, that’s Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn, and Jupiter, will be in late degrees, all are in new signs! That means the Moon will often have long Void of Course times when no planets are in late degrees of any of the signs. From the time a planet makes its last major aspect, a conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition, until it enters a new sign, is the time it is Void of Course, VC. The general interpretation is nothing will come of anything started during VC time. You go shopping for an item that is regular stock, and they are out of it that day! Sometimes it’s a good thing nothing comes of your effort, better left unsaid, so to speak, or, oops, thank God you didn’t do that! But not a preferred time for the interview for the job you really want. Yet, another interpretation is there is nothing to stop the matter, it’s a done deal. If the Moon’s last aspect was classically favorable, I would lean toward declaring a positive outcome for action taken. Generally, I would postpone if possible.

Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!
