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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet Capricorn stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential Election because they are precisely astrologically linked to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

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

Taurus – Scorpio Full Beaver Moon! 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

Transit of Mercury 2006

The 2006 ECLIPSE as seen from Earth! Credit: ESA/NASA/SOHO

Oct 23 Note: As of Nov 4 Jupiter will be within 3° of the Galactic Center! We are most assuredly within hailing distance.

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

Nov 11, 2019 the Retrograde Eclipse crosses the SUN, 7:21 AM Pacific at 18 Scorpio 55! Where it can be seen completely, it will be visible for 5.5 hours! See the AstroLogical Chart below!

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

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

Mercury will cross the Eclipse degree 3 times. It’s first pass is Oct 17, preparation and tune-up. Second is the Eclipse Nov 11. Last is Nov 30, making the best place for it in our lives. Retrograde means another look, a review, a turn around and seeing from another direction. In Scorpio important matters of relationships, finances, and health will all be revisited. This encounter with the Sun will bring hidden things to Light, unexpected sharing, a magnitude of attention.

The day after Full Beaver Moon Nov 12! The information received in the Transit of mercury is now being grounded and anchored by the in Taurus and given full perusal in Scorpio. It will then be used now through when Mercury’s sister aspect happens Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! The event is already strong with Jupiter only one degree away! It happens every 12 years, but not at the same time as the Transit of Mercury like this one!!!

In Horary Astrology, a planet, but especially Mercury, conjunct Sun, within 17 minutes, is called Cazimi. This is an exact Cazimi, an Eclipse! It is considered fortunate. Mercury is at the heart of the Sun, strengthened by the Solar union, reforged! I find people with Mercury conjunct Sun to be mental giants, have an extraordinary brilliance! They are inspired communicators, amazing researchers, express themselves with intense vitality! The Solar battery is ON! Yes, they at times get to a point of a standstill, the machinery reaches max saturation, and down they go for that nap or the night, fall asleep at the desk. Done. But the switch flips and they are at it again. Their mind can work on long after the body quits. If you love someone like this, kindly put food and water in their way. They may take it in absentmindedly as their mind is so focused on the important matter at hand!

The last Transit of Mercury was May 9, 2016 in fixed sign TaurusSee about it! It was at 19 Taurus 25 retrograde. This one is just minutes opposite at 18 Scorpio 55, almost 19 degrees. Again, old Horary science comes into play. What about that 19 degrees?! 19 Scorpio was called the ‘dread degree’ of the entire zodiac! Many are born on 19 Scorpio and do fine. Clearly there are not terrible world traumatizing events that day every year. Yet, there are times, and for some people, it indicates severe challenge, possibly lifelong. One 19 Scorpio Moon woman never knew her mother, was in 13 foster homes and known for her volatile emotions. Events may be defined quite differently. Is it carnage or should we call it regeneration? Shall we hire the wrecking crew for things that completed their usefulness, clear the path for repurposing? Taurus is a sign of fertility and growth, and Scorpio is known for healing and regeneration! Both are known for strength – one for the power of life, the other for the power of rebirth. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. They can strongly clash neither giving an inch, yet often, with help of a third party, make peace and work powerfully together for common cause.

In the Ecliptic chart, the Moon is in fixed sign Taurus this time, the sign the Transit was in last time. It just passed over Uranus, the electrical spark of Life! Uranus is the holder of the Akashic Records, the records of the soul. In Taurus it has the will to survive, to be centered, alive and in harmony with Mother Earth, anchored in Peace. There is a deep sense of calm, a kind of trust in what is most organic in us. Our values for preservation are foremost. Climate change is holding a strong place in us. Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign, plus Mars in Libra sextiling Jupiter, suggest we have a lot to learn, a lot of connections to be made, a long journey ahead, many successes along the way. Many special cross cultural relationships will be formed, profound exchanges will be shared.

This conjunction, TRANSIT, is powerfully in fixed sign Scorpio of the dark, a keen observer who puts things together behind the scenes. Who honors you with complete confidentiality about personal matters – love life, finances, health. Who heals you at deeper levels, the levels of causality rather than a quick fix of symptoms…that will come back if the core isn’t healed.

Being an underworld sign, Scorpio is at odds with the Sun, the brightest Light there is. Better be clean, able to be illuminated and scanned by this bright Soul Scope. It’s like an x-ray by the Sun, your bones appear as shadows. Nothing escapes. If you pass the test, and it is only you that knows if you did, even if you are in denial, the Light of this magnitude shows truth that can’t be ignored. You get the glimpse and it haunts you until you fix it. It’s not just the client/patient that is getting the scan, but the healer and the link between you too! Honoring yourself and your various healers, and they you, is part of the scenario.

Since it is with Mercury, it is what we think (unspoken), what we say, how we say it, when, to whom, how we listen. Mercury is quick on its feet, able to make light of things, dodge bullets, but the Truth is still the Truth, real and part of us. It mulls it over, thinks and thinks about it until things settle down, and eventually, we relax, relent, accept. Good or bad, there’s a peace. At last we can get to work. Another level is now available.

The Sun sees what we thought were all our little secrets. And suddenly many of them don’t feel so important anymore. There comes a balance between our individual being and our purpose here in this Life, our place among our fellows. Personal wellbeing with our special idiosyncrasies makes us able to tackle some of the greater issues of Humanity. Scorpio can flick out intense ideas right between our eyes! In this case our mental Kundalini will be raised. Scorpio can take on some of the most uncomfortable things and people will listen. We all share basic fears, are grateful to be appreciated and heard kindly in our greatest sorrow, pains, and glory! The Sun Lights up these places we feared were too hidden, too awful or embarrassing to say out loud, yet here we are telling our story. Finally. It’s a great release. Healers are cured by the ones they help. They say we do what we need to learn.

Mercury in Scorpio is awesome! Here’s little Mercury out there talking to Sun! Well, he is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun anyway, used to being Sun’s companion and messenger. They know each other quite well. But we don’t really think of it as an exchange, yet it is. The Sun burns away the dross. Scorpio gets obsessed and a little dirt collects around him while he is focused elsewhere. Well that needs to be offloaded and the weary thoughts of over thinking let go. The channels get clogged and need to be cleared.

Then, Mercury makes more sense and responses are quicker, more clear to hear. Sun can’t help being his big Self, but we all gotta listen to our constituents. Mercury is the Scorpio rep this time! In exchange the Word of the Sun, the Heart of Light, goes out to all those people through his Mercury conduit. The conjunction is at 18 Scorpio 55, so those of us with factors in our charts at 15 to 21 will be activated. If you have factors in Scorpio at those degrees, it could be particularly intense. It won’t be just this Transit, but it will bring back memories of the May 9, 2016 Transit as well! Mercury is an air planet. You can bet it will be waffling about in your space. A feather touch here, a glimpse through the veils of time, minds touching, thinking together as One. Possibly there is a sense of urgency. Scorpio ever calls for amending, the longer vision, the seriousness of Life. It understands consequences as well as excellence.

Mercury is Retrograde again, as it was in 2016. There is unfinished business. People we need to reconnect with. Reevaluate, repair our status, have remorse and empathy for, forgive ourselves. There are reasons why they are no longer in our lives, but we may have forgotten and need to remember the lesson. We can be kinder but not need to be with them. Or we need to ‘pass them on,’ help them get to the next level with someone able to help them with their current needs that we can’t help with. Let go and go on.

Though the mythological Mercury is a man, Mercury is considered an asexual neutral planet, servant and messenger of the Gods, as such, simply a logical Vulcan-like channel. It is at times more interested in the function of gathering and transmitting information than the information itself. Each of us will put the spin of our own chart filter on the information we receive, yet try to keep your transmission of what you receive as neutral as possible. Go for the clean abiding principles rather than judgements of it. Since Mercury is of Gemini the Twins, think of it as our masculine Solar twin being seamlessly in Union with our Earthly feminine mind. When we are at One, there are no misunderstandings, no omits. We are complete, the merger Divine.

Children born on this day during the Eclipse will have magical Solar linkage called Cazimi. Their birthdays will hold a meaningful part of our lives. In old horary astrology, when Mercury conjuncts the Sun exactly like this, it was considered unfortunate, burned out, combust. But I am with David Coleman’s camp. For your perspective, he explains it this way:

  • Cazimi, [within 0° 17′ of the Sun] then, leads to the most enchanted state wherein the essential meaning of the planet becomes truly inseparable from our spirit. A Cazimi Venus, for example, could easily be a nymphomaniac or ‘sex addict’, for example. It could also be a person with near supernatural charm, grace or insight into the world of feelings.
  • Under the sunbeams a planet [8° to 17° of the Sun] is warmed and vitalised and somewhat or completely invisible, meaning it is commanding and infused with our inner light but somehow ‘on the fringes’, lacking in conventional status. It becomes ethereal, alluring, unusual and dreamy
  • Combust planets [8° of the Sun] are unorthodox and often willfully defy external direction because they are confident in their own inner unique grasp of the planets essential meaning. They are either aloof from or disinterested in the material agenda of the planet concerned but will still display its power radiantly and forcefully but somewhat enigmatically and individually.

Short answer from another point of view: when a planet becomes non-visible because of the Sun’s light it becomes less physical and more astral in focus.

Since Cazimi is within all three of these definitions, I say ALL apply! Look at your own chart to see if you are in any of these categories and if, how you think they apply.

Expect these Cazimi children to have extraordinary things to say, an exceptionally clever mind in some way, some form of remarkable dexterity, an unusual voice, a way of speaking about a special talent that holds our attention even when it’s not our subject! In certain topics they will be intelligent ahead of their age expectancy, and will surpass common thinking.

Maybe you can tell by the chart below there is about to be a Full Moon, in fact, the very next day! It’s the Frosty Full Moon spanning Taurus/Scorpio. Our arms are open wide, fully extended, receiving and sending. Moon is Mother guardian, in Taurus is for grounding. Scorpio stores the winter foods. Scorpio intuitively knows things of importance, protects them until Taurus can secure the gold bricks in the stout counting house.Chart We may not understand it fully yet, but instinct draws us to hold safe space for it.

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit are linked by degrees, the Sun, and both happen in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign!

Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER FOR WHEN PLUTO WAS CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path. That event was Oct 30, 2018 at 18 Capricorn 58. This one at 18 Scorpio 56 is only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun and the Sun is in SCORPIO for both! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observed that 2018 event and in 2019 is at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, keenly alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.


The exact conjunction is Nov 11, eleven eleven! That is a numerological pair of double numbers, considered master numbers. The number One represents leadership, inspiration, new beginnings, Initiation. In Scorpio that would mean starting over, revision or renewing a connection or contract of partnership. There is a knowing that two can do what one alone can’t do by themselves. Two Ones, standing together add to Two, a solidarity, like the second sign Taurus.

The exact time is 7:21 AM Pacific, just after Sunrise! We on the US west coast will be able to see it happening. The Sun is a big place, so it starts at Sunrise in Santa Barbara CA, 7:20 AM! For others it could be seen as long as 5 1/2 hours! It’s recommended to go to a high place, and TAKE YOUR ECLIPSE GLASSES!!!! The full transit period ends at 10:03 AM Pacific. Watch for the black drop effect, an optical illusion seemingly connecting Mercury’s disc to the Sun’s edge! It’s 100% done at 10:04 AM. Check out Dominic Ford’s simulation of how Mercury crosses the Sun at your location!

VISIBILITY! It is visible—weather permitting—for at least several hours in most of the world – US, South America, Africa, and Europe. You can see it as a tiny black dot silhouetted against the Sun’s disk. Find out if an astronomy group is setting up near you. Get tickets to the observatory! Find your favorite live stream channel! Find or get your viewing glasses now and put them in a place where you can easily find them! Clean up your old telescope. For viewing times at your location, click here at Time & Date! Enter your location.

On the average, there are only 13 Transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032.

Be present as you can. It’s a Monday. Take the day off? Give gratitude, pray for guidance, healing for all, that you may be a clear transmitter. Be still and receive. Give thanks. If you can, write down or record your thoughts, request they be anchored in your Spirit. Share any message you feel you can. Remember, we are in this together, many Souls receiving. You may have a piece that needs to be coordinated with one or more others to gain full understanding and expression of the message to others. Thank you. Blessed be.

This is a profound exchange of information between us and the Heart of Light! Each person is linked to this chart in their own way, or not at all, though that isn’t likely since the many factors involved are across so many degrees. Each of us has a part in some way. Thank you for you and your part.

And this isn’t all. Nov 19 Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER! For such long term events, these sister aspects, Transit and Jupiter at the Galactic Center, so few days apart, are virtually happening together! Please see about Jupiter at the Galactic Center!

Famous People Born On November 11th
  • Environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio, 44. (Actor, Film Producer)
  • Demi Moore, 56. (American actress)

Famous People Born On November 19th

Capricorn 2018 Celestial HighLights

Capricorn ~ Stones, Castles & Labyrinths! 

Capricorn Dunure Castle Labyrinth Scotland Michelini

Magical place, Dunure Castle and Labyrinth, Scotland. Beautiful photo by Stefano Michelini!

Capricorns have a Spirit as ancient as the rocks they befriend.

Rocks have been known throughout time as sacred guardians – protectors from marauders, cave, castle or stone home shelter. Capricorn does this as naturally as breathing. They can be fierce to the bone and give you the evil Mephistopheles eye that makes you backup and shiver if you dare to threaten or intrude! Capricorns are loyal and dependable. You want them on your side, LOL, because they are clever as all get out!

Rocks used in retaining walls, as dams for water, irrigation, surrounds for fire pits on a cold windy night, are invaluable – can save your life! Capricorn gets the most from the land sustainably and safely. They work easily with scientists and engineers, responding creatively to their ideas. They may even be the scientist, researcher!

Stones can make cheap fences. In areas with little wood and lotsa rocks, at high altitudes, or like in the British isles, they are perfect for boundary lines between farms. It’s important to know your place, to respect and let others live their lives their way. Gates, keys, thresholds, stone archway entrances, are all part of the flow ways between. Use your dowsing rod to find exactly where they should be installed.

Those same walls can keep us in a safe place, the sheep and goats in a safe place. Capricorns know sometimes it’s better to be right where you are until things have changed, or you are strong enough to go beyond on your own natural boundaries. Thank the walls that save you from yourself!

Foundations that will last forever might be essential. They are our roots, the abiding principles in our lives that are time tested. Caps are master Builders. Consult with them to understand weaknesses, how to get stronger. Just like people have dogs and gardens that mimic themselves, so does your structure, starting with the foundation, mimic your life choices, only this one might be long term. Look ahead as a Capricorn would from his high mountain vantage point. Think about the truest meanings, the deepest values you want to live for. Give that a strong foothold.

Gravel! The everyday gravel in the paths of our lives, gravel as mulch in a Zuni waffle garden. From round to natural ragged footpath stones. Square, retangular, dovetailing in grand patterns. We are always wearing things down to a fine texture. What was so big yesterday, a few months ago, years ago, has less presence now. It’s been divided and worked in the increments we can handle. Bits of it have been fitted into our being, other parts have been let go, we have changed, grown and no longer need them. This new ‘soil’ is the fertile ground that new parts of ourselves can grow in.

The magnificent wheel grinding the grain to flour is akin to that gravel. Capricorn is aware of the finality of transformation when it gets to a certain point. Capricorn Builders don’t always build up, sometimes they reduce to fit, like those corner stones in a stone paved driveway or patio, or the pieces made to fit in a rock wall. There are times we need to surrender to fit with life. We intelligently shape shift to make the best of it at the time. Because it is our choice, we don’t mind. Sometimes we can shift back later; other times what’s done is done. We are literally a chip off the old block.

Capricorn Wheel Meeting Place Durango Dry Stone

As Durango Dry Stone says: Partnering with Gravity to make beautiful functional art! 

ART Sculptures, ornate stone buildings and temples, sacred gardens, meeting places. Capricorn beauty is often geometric, long lasting. Sculptings often are symbolic of timeless principles, people of great honor. Technical skills give Capricorns an artistic edge, miraculous to the rest of us. Gardens are a blend of land, prestigious and pedigreed plants, stonework that presents them without taking away from them. Intricate and handsome enrichment. Meeting places, like the one in the image, can be inspiring, calling us to be in our higher Spirit. Doesn’t matter what the surroundings are, the meeting place is powerful in its own right. It makes you want to be counted.

Markers – cairns along the trail for wilderness wanderers, monuments, and tombstones that show respect that we existed in whatever way our Spirit intended. Honor and remembrance are deep in the Capricorn Soul. None of us may completely understand. We just know there are many things in progress. Though Capricorn is a solid rock earth sign, they are wise Beings that by default also understand what’s unspoken or invisible. They may seem super sober, by the book, as rigid as those rocks, but don’t judge them entirely by their cover. They are realists, and it doesn’t get more ‘psychic’ than that. As far as that reference to being rigid goes, maybe they were undependable in past lives and now they are making up for lost time to a fault!

Capricorn Stone Crinkle Crankle Wall by Dutch Engineers in the 17th Century - Pie Crusts?!

Stones can be born, forged by volcanic fire, pressed into existence by Earth Herself. At times, in the high country, we hear them crackle as they freeze, then scream and split – rock fall causing mini quakes as they roll, tumble, crush to a resting place. Canyons form, with creeks and rivers that grind the rocks round to sand and silt. In all time, they become soil on the floodplains. Fertility, minerals for our food plants depend on them. This tremendous process is at times what our Capricorns go through. They can feel compressed and potent to the point of being almost explosive. They can be content, being completely who they are a whole lifetime with no questions. There are times they bust loose, like the maker of the fence at left! It is a ‘crinkle crankle’ wall built by Dutch engineers in the 17th century! There may be a lot more wiggle room than we thought! We are so surprised and often they are too! Not the same person! No map could do it justice!

Some stones are so old our ancestors remembered them; some of us remember them as places we were at in past lives – they remember us! That’s why we are so attracted to some crystals or certain stones in jewelry. Stones were the first wheels! The Stone People have been witnesses throughout the ages. They have witnessed births, marriages, baptisms, sacrifices, deaths, whole lives, generations. Priests and the High Priestesses know these places intuitively. Some are sacred, some need a little cleansing to revive their well being. Know that stones are living entities. It is just that they function a little differently than we do.

A stone Labyrinth is symbolic of a life story unfolding, how we walk our lives. Purification prayer, a gift to the Labyrinth at the entrance, maybe a pause at the turns, approach the center. Stand still in Peace and gratitude. Return, refreshed, into your day. Let all be well with you.

Capricorn Overview of Year to Come!

We start Capricorn’s new year with Venus and Mercury both direct (no longer retrograde) finishing their complete retrograde cycles. For some it was a long 4 months. See Venus/Mercury Rx! 

Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, entering Sagittarius was the last of a 10 day series of events that started when Pluto crossed the Golden Ecliptic Oct 30 2018! These events occurred during Venus Retrograde that was followed back to back with Mercury Retrograde Nov 16! Sagittarius got us on the Path, Capricorn will lead us through the most treacherous parts. They have nerves of steel and are as fearless as those mountain goats!

The potent Ecliptic event links with the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury Eclipse!  As Pluto was purified in the Sun’s path, the Ecliptic, for many days, now, Mercury, in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, crosses the face of the Scorpio Sun, being purified for hours! The Sun burns away the dross. Pluto is the great internal purifier that works in the dark from within! This is where the Kundalini life fire emerges, and the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Resurrection! What a powerful combination. Clearly Mercury can take it, being in Scorpio, a powerfully strong sign. On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032. Only a few days later, Nov 19, Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, conjuncts the GALACTIC CENTER! At this level we’re talking a whole different kind of purification, the light of many stars/suns, galaxies. Though it is only on a 12 year cycle, this and the Transit of Mercury are potent as sister aspects, essentially happening concurrently! And they could see the Light…….

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

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

Capricorn starts with Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune in their own signs! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Saturn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show and he wants to know what’s real, is it doable.

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

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

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

Sun in Sagittarius thinks them over and the entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. These special aspects have prepared the way for Jupiter moving into Capricorn Dec 2! That will make 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, again, 3 in Capricorn until Saturn goes forward into AQ Dec 16! Jupiter will become a bit cautious, but his robust nature will speed Capricorn up! They are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto! See all about it!

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

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

 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Sagittarius’s coming year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Capricorn 2018 – January 2020!

Capricorn Patagonia Torres del Paine National Park Trekkers Mountains

Trekkers enjoying the fierce conditions at Patagonia’s Torres del Paine National Park! Stuplendous, for a fact! Put Patagonia, Machu Picchu, Nepal, the high altitude head-clearing places on your list this year! 

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

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

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

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

Pluto continues to clear Capricorn, making projects effective and viable. Timely features accounting for climate changes, up to date materials, employing the latest experts bring Capricorn’s work right into the news! The work has a special feel to it, charismatic! Capricorn is still the responsible, quality craftsman, and it shows! He applies these principles to new ideas, and it works! Pluto knows where to get the funding, so when there was nothing before, all of a sudden unexpected backing happens! Pluto has gut feelings when there is danger and will help Cap sidestep the pitfalls and pick more trustworthy business partners. He spices up Cappie’s love choices. It pays to have both love and money, LOL! Live fully with a juicy partner who loves you the way you are, but also wants more for you than you do, believes in you in a good way! Pluto insists on paying attention to your health. No neglect or abandoning yourself. Keep your teeth, LOL! Capricorn may doggedly stick to some of his ideas, but doesn’t have obsessions as Pluto can. Pluto will be gifted to be in Cap’s presence and find he too can let go at times.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors betweenn 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Though they are so different, Neptune is quite helpful to Capricorn. Neptune dissolves some of the Capricorn crust, inspires him with elegant visions, shows him ways to ride through the storm. Capricorn survives against long odds, and holds awards for his service. Tidal Neptune always has a song of the sea, rises and falls, carries the great ships to far places. Often weaker in childhood, Capricorn finds his own sacred rhythm, his own special place in our world, an honored master of his craft. Neptune shows him there is more than what we do, are known for. We have Soul as well. That’s the magic part of the Capricorn Magician, High Priest/ess, Wizard/Witch!

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

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

Uranus in Aries, and Capricorn may vie for position, but it won’t last long. Aries quickly sees what can be done then like lightning takes of for the next venture. Capricorn may swat at him like a fly, take a good look at his ideas, ask him to leave or stay! Whatever you do, you will be changed! Cap will think about him after he’s gone, but Cap is always working onward, so will forget him in time. Meanwhile the ideas live on as Capricorn figures out how to get them to work and tests them. Capricorn is tested to just listen a bit, not judge that not all people live by routines, are on time, or live to please them, LOL! Ah, and so it is. Those few days or moments together can mean a lot, be quite valuable, so take it in. Use what you can, let the rest go, but archive the ideas – they may become useful later. Uranus in Aries is innovative, fresh, ahead of their time! Don’t miss the clue!

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

Taurus is an Earth sign and so is Capricorn! Their connections with Earth are different. Taurus is thought of as the fertile food growing fields, while Capricorn is the high mountain peaks the soil comes from. Taurus is barefooted in his tank top; Capricorn has gear for all kinds of weather and strong mountain boots. Taurus can be lazy warm, the cows and their cuds, while Capricorn is bone numbing cold, with only enough vegetation for goats! You could die. Taurus shows Capricorn how to relax, use the comfort to heal and release what was held tight. Capricorn, to his surprise, feels lighter and gets twice as much done with all that old stuff gone. Taurus helps Capricorn assess his own body, find more beauty, to nibble the flowers in the highlands, eat those alpine strawberries. They both love sex! Taurus is super sensual. Rutty goat Capricorn has never had flower petals in the sheets before…but how yummy it is in front of that beautiful big fireplace when winter comes! Uranus in Taurus is people of the land, indigenous as well as many of us. He wants the land to be free, natural, to be used sustainably. He calls on Capricorn law to preserve and regulate, restore. He calls on Capricorn scientists to show historical change, predict what can be done.

CHIRON, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, entered Aries April 17 2018! After taking a foray into Aries, he is now back in Pisces until Feb 18. He will cover 28 Pisces to almost 6 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. See more Chiron travels very close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Pisces and Aries are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action!

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron, the Shaman, will stand beside Capricorn. Healing will go through Capricorn directly to Capricorn’s people – his family, coworkers, employees, friends in official positions. Chiron will up Capricorn’s sense if now is the time to change the system, update old rules and laws, open a new business. A long lasting marriage may be on the table. It may be more of a practical business partnership than romantic, and that would likely be ok with both partners. It would be healing to both of them to succeed.

As Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron goes into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into immediate action! Capricorn may be nonplussed or saying it’s about time! Working together may be a challenge. Personal relationships, marriages may not happen. Do check with your astrologer! Cappies are likely working hard as they always do. Then this wild fiery Aries Shaman type comes in, unasked even, and makes plausible suggestions, groan. Things need updating, new things added, and there is an official deadline. Ye, Gods, now to do that too?! Yes, it will be better, safer, more productive, but it’s gonna take time and less sleep. There might be a few implications about changing some personal things too. Well, if they improve your health, ok. But even that takes dedicated attention. Stay with it, and give that Shaman a little sass! Tell him if he wants it done, to send some special energies your way! Hmpf! And maybe some funds to hire a helper!

SATURN builds from 10 to 21 Capricorn.

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


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 11 to 23 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through January 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

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

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

JUPITER moves from 11 Sagittarius to 6 Capricorn

Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter went into Sag at 4:38 AM Pacific. The huge Camp Fire in Paradise, California started that morning, first calls at 6:33 AM. Jupiter changing signs was preceded by an eventful NINE days started by the important 248 year aspect Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! I had written ‘Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!’ The Camp Fire took the lives of 88 people, 25 still missing as of Dec 2. Nov 15 nearby Chico CA had an AQI, Air Quality Index, of 350 at one point.

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

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

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

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how current planetary positions apply to your chart. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns from your forever grateful fans!

Libra 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Libras ~ Beauty Be!

Libra 4 Planets Gwyneth Paltrow Beauty Be

Sunset is Libra’s time of day. Mid Fall, Equinox, end of the summer sun, shorter days is Libra’s time of year. Both are endings, success, gatherings of gratitude, sharing. For some it is a time to slow down, sit down to dinner together, do indoor evening chores for a time, rest. Summer zest and plant production slows, steady winter growth of chill loving plants takes their place in the garden. Instead of so much comfortable outdoor play time, many are back at school, back at work, the longer cooler evenings giving more the mood to study, to plan. Herein lies the secret of new beginnings, new vantage points, new skills! Life has the potential of being truly aligned to your Spirit. The rest doesn’t fit. There is a tipping point, considerations of the longer term balance of the seasons, the long term goals of your Being updated every year at this time! Training for deep winter sports commences. The Artist within us witnesses the shifts, different lighting, Mother Earth’s natural progress unfolding.

The three Air signs! Gemini walks the neighborhood. Libra chats them up and partnerships of all kinds are made! Libra makes so many connections, Aquarius can band them together across the world, whether business, internet, or mutual international causes! The intellects of all time are gathered for profit, pleasure, research and rescue! Libra’s contribution is crucial because not all Aquarians, often the most productive ones, are busy perusing the ethers, not interested in people as much as discovery! So it’s up to Libra to cross this gap – culturally, age wise, of faiths, and the races! Libra is exquisitely capable. Lines of inquiry are pursued, consultations are made, surprising mergers spring into being without seeming effort. Remember the Magicians seeking how to turn dross into gold? Libras have always known how to do that. They are old alchemists.

Immortal Beauty is invisible. It’s more a quality than a thing of skill or technique. It has intrinsic value, recognition by all cultures. It crosses the gateways of time, always is thought of as beautiful. Or, it visibly fills our eyes, Spirit, and marks our very Soul. When Libra shows us the mortal side of beauty this way, we remember who we are, our intentions, how we have wandered many lives to get preciously here. We spontaneously slip into a Knowing that needs no words. That sacred experience is often conjured by stories that end in such a way, we know a change happened, a release, an arrival, yet how we got there, where we are, doesn’t matter at all anymore. We are here. Use me, Great Spirit, Angels show me the way. Libra is there as a Guide, supremely aware of nuances, keeping us from falls or slight deviances from our destination. A bouquet of flowers, cleverly placed, perfectly scented (centered), lifts our attention – keeps our focus extended, further and higher.

Beauty is Divine. It is so much more meaningful than we surmise. It’s an unexpected smile that changes our day, even saves our life. It’s the lay of the land, a park in the City whose trees help us breathe and recenter. It’s those sophisticated or rustic clothes that tell the story of who we are and hint at who we are becoming to be, attract the right people as we go along. Beauty is a Verb. It’s how we live our connections with other Souls, each special.

Libra is the special time of Fall Equinox equal day and night. It’s the balance between light and dark. As summer ends, we are aware of our accomplishments and ready to increase our creds with more education. It’s a special balance of standing with our talents, and keeping up with the changes of time. We connect with learned beings who help us stay poised while in motion! Baseball is a Libra sport, a team sport, with super skillful expertise required. Equestrian sports require a relationship with your horse and exceptional in motion balance. Surfing and skiing require an intuitive relationship with ocean and earth, and the balance to stay up while in motion! Gymnastics has its balance beam that you propel yourself across! Yoga is a ton more subtle, but it will challenge your abilities, your relationship with yourself! All these sports will help you in many ways to understand the concepts of relationships and balance. A Libra favorite is dancing, from lines and squares, to rock, to ballroom, to ballet! Grace, beauty and exercise all in one!

Now, for some fun… Sep 27, 1972 Libran Gwyneth Kate Paltrow Martin has 4 planets in Libra – Pluto, Sun, Mercury and Uranus! She is an American actress, businesswoman, socialite, lifestyle guru, singer, and food writer. She is razzed about her quotes, so I thought I would throw in one some of you astrologers will appreciate, LOL! At 29, the year after her Saturn (sometimes pessimistic, not funny) Return, she said to NY Rock, November 2001:

“Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don’t have that many good years left in me.” She’s now 45; they can laugh all they want at her quotes, but depending on where you look, her net worth is 60M, 72M or estimated to be 140M! Whatever….it’s a healthy chunk of change.

Keep the Faith, and keep practicing your Balance, Friends!

Libra 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Libra Astrology Highlights 2018!

“The giant sunsets are a whole other world on the (Bolivian) salt flats. At sunset, with the reflection, you can see two suns moving fast at each other until vanishing into the horizon.” By photographer Eric Paré

Libra 2018 Timeline!

October 
5   Venus, Libra’s Planet, Retrogrades
8   New Moon
8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
23  Happy Scorpio!
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!


Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs
 in Libra’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Sep 25 Chiron retrogrades back into Pisces, Nov 6, Uranus back into Aries. Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron enters Aries permanently, Mar 6, Uranus into Taurus permanently.

Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again! Now in Aries, Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and restored.

Retrogrades! Oct 5 to Dec 6, 2018 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! 

With the multiple outer planet sign changes and the retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

By November 2019, all SIX of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune, is a peerless appraiser. If he’s behind us, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more! There is an intense 10 day period with multiple aspects that will take all next year to assimilate! We will need those aspects with Neptune to understand and come to working solutions.
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Libra’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Libra 2018 – October 2019!

Libra Dancing Sunset Birds Flying

Dancing the vaults of heaven! Take more chances; dance more dances! Author unknown…

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018, now moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto has been square Libra since 2008, finishing Jan 2024. Relationships may have been emphasized. Pluto may want to clear old content, each person taking responsibility for their part. There have likely been cautions about professional interactions and intercultural endorsements, plus pressure to perform as scheduled. Keep personal security protection up to date, don’t let your insurance lapse. If you have doubt about trust, don’t – be safe. Pluto wants the best for you, but having that happen may not always be comfortable or seem feasible. You could go to court. Though you may be Libra nice and try to help, the long term best choice may be to let go. Pluto may BE the problem, intimidating, or helps you get through with the least pain and expenses. Pluto moves slowly, so these matters could take some time, including health challenges.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors betweenn 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Libra are inconjunct, an awareness aspect. Both are artists and love music! Both are sensitive to the nuances of everything around them! Neptune sleeps and dreams, sometimes has addictions and illogical misty visions or totally accurate psychic perception! Libra prefers logic and being clean and sober, but is known to ‘read’ people really well by putting themselves in the other person’s place! Pisces has compassion; Libra has equality. There but for the Grace of God, go I. Libra learns there is more than a butterfly count of connections. Connections have to mean something, have a purpose. Pisces may prefer quiet alone time while Libra’s cure is being social, getting out and about. If that musician or artist needs to make more sales, the Libra agent or gallery owner is perfect for them! Libra’s are great at making contacts, beautiful displays, and subsequent sales!

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

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

Aries is opposite Libra. Libra definitely likes new! The more the merrier! Changes in greetings, mediation skills, upleveling partnering, new sales territory! Libra steps up quickly and follows Aries’ lead. While they are at it, Libra slips in some social phases and ideas for Aries so he will have even greater success! She may be swept off her feet, but she knows whether an idea is going to make it as is or needs adjusting. Together they can make quick changes that work well. Libra may need more rest, so Aries should expect some time outs to go off and do his own thing. He might just make a quick stop with you and is off to meet others. You could be left on your own, especially if he thinks you’ve got it and can carry on without him!

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

Taurus is an Earth sign; Libra is Air. Uranus in Taurus may steadily nibble away around the edges, gradually changing the landscape. It is at once exciting and non threatening. It perseveres. Libra appreciates this more genteel approach though could also wish for the fast pace of courthouse investigations, art appraisals, the broad approach of intercultural studies and international connections, the rush of political frays, fighting for the rights of the people! Uranus in Taurus as the watcher may offer surprising insights about natural shifts, how networks of people can be called together. Works for her! Libra loves gathering the troops for a fair fight!

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries. It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees.

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Libra seeks a balance – not too much of that spiritual stuff, good social time, reasonable money to have some finer things in life, beauty, a little travel, plenty of fresh air! Chiron can offer his intuitive views that shift directions just enough to pull it off! Libra dances well, so quickly and admirably makes award winning changes!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Libra is fascinated by the pace and the sweeping array of possible new connections with teachers and leaders from all over the world! Aries won’t stay long, but it was so worth the encounter! Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Libra is delighted, reordering the sequences, putting people in their new perfect placements!

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through October 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can put the brakes on Air sign Libra, or challenge Libra to stand up and tell it like it is! No more being taken advantage of for being so nice. Saturn censors or gives excellent advice on whom to do business with, how to choose a long lasting personal partnership. Libra may want to be liked, but Saturn wants you to choose because it is a good choice. Saturn is an expert at timing. If he senses this is not the time, wait. Saturn can be pretty serious, so a steady diet of demand for achievement may not be Libra’s cup of tea. Libra needs time to meet people and just breathe with associates after work. Weekend museum trips are great. Saturn needs to know all creatures can not be or want to be just like him. He can use a social emissary for when he’s got a case of the busies, and brilliant Libra knows just how to front for him while he takes time out!

JUPITER moves from 20 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential while you do it! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Libra is the sign preceding Scorpio. Libra makes the contacts, negotiates the deals. Jupiter in Scorpio peruses the charts, trends, actual accounts to see just how far they can go. On a journey, he would be Libra’s protector while they explore uncharted locations having unpredictable inhabitants. Yet when it comes to talking, Libra is the one! Jupiter has opinions and Scorpio may not want to reveal all. Could be a bit dicey at times. Jupiter wants Libra’s good cheer, so will try to assess Libra’s ability. If a love of danger and a little fierceness is present, they go there! If not, Jupiter will guide a more gentle expedition. He will encourage Libra to bring any meds, drink safe water, eat safe foods, find comfortable lodging for her. Libra is more refined than Jupiter, or Scorpio, yet sometimes she needs to let her hair down and just relax. It’s a relief just to be yourself as is. Other times Jupiter & Scorpio need to watch their mouths, be a little more thoughtful and respectful. We don’t always realize the effect we have.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter either comes streaking through Libra’s life like a comet, is the owner of the bed and breakfast, or the university prof! Generally they get along, and Libra loves anthropology! She may be inspired to take some journeys on her own! She might be well read, especially on current events, but Jupiter certainly has more ideas about styles of living, the meaning of life, and from his broad experience, you never know what he will say next! Libra’s curiosity will take her on many ventures whether she goes anywhere or not! She’s a lovely hostess and could be the love of the tour guides life! They could own an online travel agency, publish travel tips books! Sagittarius is noted for longevity and Libra tries to keep a balanced life. He has a long stride while she may wait for him at the cafe making new acquaintances, catching the local buzz! What a lovely companion and smart too!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

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

A homespun calico blue gingham New Moon sky studded with Milky Way stars! Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument​, Flagstaff AZ ~ image by Christian Heeb via Getty Images

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!

Pluto Conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at His South Node!

Pluto Ecliptic South Node Line of Nodes Diagram Capricorn

The Line of Nodes is the intersection between the orbital plane of Pluto (purple) and that of Earth (white). Because Pluto’s orbit is significantly inclined relative to the ecliptic plane, node crossings are rare, and because Pluto’s orbit is eccentric, they occur in 87 and 161 year intervals. Credit: Anne Verbiscer

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic, north to south, at South Node, at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! That’s a stunner 248 year event few ever experience! Last time it crossed south to north September 4, 1930 – NASA says it was 1931. 1930 was when Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto! And it was in the time of the US Great Depression. Pluto is known for extremes and financial events. It will take 161 years to reach its North Node, 2179.

The last time it crossed north to south, like it is now, was July 2, 1770, the day after Comet Lexell passed the closest to Earth than any other comet in recorded history!

The Line of Nodes is the intersection of the plane of the Earth’s orbit and a planet’s orbit. If the planet is near one of these intersection points at the time of opposition, they were mid 2016, it is in near-perfect alignment with the Earth and Sun.

Astronomer Anne Verbiscer asks did the fact that objects tend to be brighter, sometimes exceptionally so when they are near opposition, also increase Tombaugh’s chances of making his famous discovery? She explains that Pluto was definitely brighter at that time due to the “opposition effect.” Sometimes it is a dramatic increase in reflected sunlight that occurs when a planet, moon, asteroid or comet is at opposition.

Opposition is every year when planets orbiting the sun beyond Earth’s orbit reach what astronomers call “opposition,” when they appear in the sky at the position opposite that of the sun. See more!

Ecliptic Sun's Path Ring of FireA Blip on the Ring of Fire!

Per Wiki ‘The ecliptic is the circular path on the celestial sphere that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year.’ The term also refers to the plane of this path, which is coplanar with Earth’s orbit around the Sun. That’s why Pluto crossing the Ecliptic is so strongly linked with Earth! They are all lined up! Since Earth tilts, they would be even more lined up if this happened at one of the Equinoxes!

Oct 30, tiny yet powerful Pluto will be at 18 Capricorn 58, his South Node, descending! In this context, Pluto is entering his own Underworld for the next 161 years. This downunderness is a natural place for Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. It thrives in deep environs, places that could be dangerous, that challenge you to the core. They want to clean up messes, know what makes things tick, what to do at the thresholds of life and death. They carry the midwife’s basket and comfortably work at Hospice. They are pros at Wall Street and on the Market. They see the struggles, failures and successes and try their hand at it all too. Stealth and Wealth.

The Ecliptic doesn’t move; Pluto is the one that is moving, relative to it. Pluto is going to be immersed in the Trail of Light. From flaws to profound keen Healer, all is revealed. Pluto will stand in the Path of the Heart of Light, bathing in the greatest battery, Light charger, possible. What doesn’t work – poor health, a suffering or mean attitude, useless compulsions – may be burned away, offered up and released to the Solar winds. What’s left, what does work may stand clearly and be enhanced like a pure energy.

Relationships may be profoundly adjusted. More love, more sharing, more standing together for their life’s causes. They may keep a low profile, privacy a strong tool, but you will sense their combined formidable power. If it is time to dissolve, may it be done with dignity and respect.

If any planet can do it, Pluto can! The ability to transform, Dark to Light, is his profound business. The Phoenix rises from its own ashes. You may hardly recognize him when you see him next. Pluto is in Capricorn now. Pluto is destruction, clearing obstacles, detoxing, cleansing, resurrection! Capricorn is the builder, renovation. Together they restore and enhance with the best materials and devices current times have to offer! Sustainably. Capricorn is the Father, dedicated, responsible, condensing power, compounding the interest! Saturn is in Capricorn, his own sign, too, so these will be truly productive times for those who put in the effort. Intuition will be strong, work will be focused right at the critical junctures.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest lunar event by degree of 2018 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.

Capricorn has intentions and Pluto can be obsessed, together 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.

Mars and Mercury are both Retrograde in our Solar Eclipse chart! 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 being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square 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!

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! 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, or if you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! LightKeepers are needed.

Oct 30 the SUN will be at 7 Scorpio 30 along the Ecliptic. Scorpio is Pluto’s Sign! The Sun is ON! It’s a merger of Dark and Light, both valuable in their own way. Through this kindred energy, Pluto, on the Sun’s circle, will have more courage and ability to be resonant because Light isn’t his natural element. Take some time that day to feel the effects of Light on Light, Light on Dark.

Will Pluto leave its scent as it crosses through this energy plane/portal? It must! Will we feel it when the Sun conjuncts the Oct 30 Capricorn point Jan 9, 2019, and when Sun next makes his annual conjunction with Pluto two days later Jan 11, 2019 at 20 Capricorn 56? And what about Oct 30, 2019?! Let’s sit with it and see what we get! Pluto moves only 3 degrees a year, slowly. This degree is still very close. Take some time, these important dates, to feel what Pluto, Sun, and Scorpio are channeling to us. Light itself may need cleansing, recharging. The Dark may need purifying so it may function cleanly to be a protective shield or be a safe place to have deep thought and alternate perception. Dawn and Dusk become more special, times of blending their forces.

There are longer term aspect events as well! If you are strongly affected by the Pluto/Ecliptic, note these dates on your calendar!

  • First is the uncommon Nov 11 2019 Transit of Mercury at 18 Scorpio 56! It is six minutes (of space) conjunct Jupiter’s sextile Pluto position Sep 12, 2018 at 18 SC 50, the closest aspect preceding Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Transit is only two minutes of exact sextile to the Pluto/Ecliptic point at 18 Cap 58! See more below!
  • As Saturn travels its own sign Capricorn, along with Pluto, it makes three important connections. June 18, 2019, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 43. Dec 10, 2019 it conjuncts the 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic position! January 12, 2020 it conjuncts PLUTO at 22 Capricorn 46, on average a 34 year event!
  • Last, Jupiter squares Neptune June 16 2019, two days before Saturn sextiles it from 18 Capricorn 43. Jupiter exactly conjuncts the Pluto/Ecliptic position in Capricorn on Feb 26, 2020! It then moves on to conjunct Pluto three times during 2020. In addition, Oct 12, 2020, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 45!

This #18 now holds fascination! Number One is Initiation, action, leadership, being first! 8 is the Infinity number. Comprised of two circles touching, it is thought of as a ‘figure’ 8. For some of us it is the ultimate dynamic of the Möbius loop. It irrevocably bonds our souls equally yet we are discreetly different. We are in a fusion of action, each compellingly and continuously involving the other with every breath! Laying on its side, perhaps 8 is the power of two as one, we ‘know’ each other intimately forever, maybe good and evil. Vertically, it can symbolize the always day and night sequence, or as above, so below. One and eight add to Nine, in numerology, the completion. By definition nine has the qualities of all the numbers, represents spirituality, mystical knowledge, even thought of as a sacred number… The symbolic calling here is profound. Eighteen might be thought of as the Initiation of Union.

Yes, Oct 30 is months away (this written Feb 16, 2018), 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. Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

Many astrologers think this is a several years long event. I agree. You don’t wake up that day and say, wow, I can feel Pluto at the Ecliptic and its over! It’s a process, a sense of it, a learning how to transform Dark to Light, merge Dark and Light work with those mediums. Not a 5 minute affair. You need to practice in all kinds of circumstances, become seasoned. It’s not just for yourself but to be capable to be that healer/teacher for others as well.

The Fixed Star Deneb is at 19 Capricorn 48 in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan! It is less than 1 degree of Pluto’s South Node. Swans are the sweeties! Grace, beauty. The Swan symbolizes to make sound, to take flight! Deneb is one of the three stars of the huge Summer Triangle in the sky! Deneb links with Lyra in Lyre the Harp, beautiful etheric music, and Altair in another bird constellation, Aquila, the fierce bird of prey, the Eagle! Raise your vision. Let go of old weight, spiritual and otherwise, that no longer serves; fly your good powers clean and well. Use your keen perception to heal and serve right on target. Make beauty, beautiful sound, take flight, rise above!

Here is another look at the immediate cosmic schedule! Pluto at the Ecliptic starts a TEN day sequence of aspects to Jupiter changing into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event!

Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! A look into the Underworld, our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

To add a little spice to the trail, Venus Retrograde hostesses this intense 10 day sequence! She is retrograde until Nov 16, the same day Mercury retrogrades! What she reverses and modifies, Mercury will be thinking and communicating about. We will collectively be revising many of our values, our sense of beauty, what we feel good about in ourselves, who we want to spend our precious time with and why. Our wants will be changing and the ways we go about getting our needs met will change.

Venus is at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Scorpio Nov 7 New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

It is while within that Taurus preview that Uranus hosts Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! In Taurus, the most stable of the Earth signs, the Pluto/Ecliptic transmissions are grounded and stabilized. Venus Rx, on the spot, is doing her best to shift what she can while the excitement is happening. It’s her best chance. Taurus is one of her signs, so they have a certain understanding. He recognizes her excellent assessments, and gives them priority.

You see how intricate and several-years extensive this complex of events is! It will change us as the days and years go by. Some will be so apparent; some will be so subtle.

Pluto will bring more Light than ever thought possible! Light on Light, Light in the Dark! Jupiter with Chiron further opens the gates of healing and teaching in water signs Scorpio and Pisces. Uranus back in Aries restores unions of leaders of leaders! We WILL proceed. The Scorpio New Moon finds the deepest re-solutions. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus finds an alternate Path to skirt the blocks, open new territory. PathFinder Jupiter in Sagittarius knows where to go! Keeps the Faith.

Those of you with factors in your chart from 5 to 10 degrees (Oct 30 Sun’s degree at the Ecliptic), especially in Scorpio or 16 to 21 degrees (Oct 30 Pluto at the Ecliptic degree), especially in Capricorn, will have the most potent contact. Take some time out, alone or in the power of a Circle, to receive. The rest of us are counting on you to give us the keys we need to carry that Light forward for a long time to come. I imagine it may take some time to put it into perfect words and working order. That’s ok, but don’t take too long, the planet needs the info soonest. Even if you are awkward at first, some will understand immediately. They too will be guided, but we need you to get us started! Plant those StarSeeds where they will count!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving Unfinished that lies in darkness, that when raised up releases us from the chains of eternal suffering.

Anne Verbiscer says ‘We won’t know just how bright Pluto can get until 2018, but you can be sure we will be watching to find out!’ There won’t be another crossing until December 11, 2178!


This Pluto encounter will be indelibly memorable to those whose charts are linked to it. With such events it can take years to understand their full meaning. But this one has some help! Nov 11, eleven, eleven, 2019 is the TRANSIT OF MERCURY! Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER for our current PLUTO CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! This event is at 18 Capricorn 58. The Transit is at 18 Scorpio 56, only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observes this 2018 event and in 2019 will be at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Why are we not surprised?! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.

Taurus, Peace, Strength and Insight

Taurus International Yoga Day

Taurus saves us every day. It’s the sign of body awareness. Ruled by Venus, it seeks grace, beauty that permeates us. Peace comes into our hearts. Wellness makes for radiance and attractiveness. Being centered and grounded bring immediate true simple reactions, sensible solutions. It is humble, admits error, smiles with joy at success of our personal contributions that support all. There is innocence without contrivance or competition. Venus is giving. Taurus stands in patience, kindness.

Such strength is often invisible, a gentle daily action that is relaxing to follow, yet if you stand back, you can see it. There are times when their restraint is their success. It is no sign of weakness to wait until a good time. Physically, Tauruses often have amazing strength and endurance. They can lift extraordinarily heavy objects with no effort at all.

Oh, yes indeed, the same strength for forward motion can also be them standing in front of you with their arms crossed over their chest, immovable as the Oak tree. You can be gentle, rage at them, be clever with your logic to no avail. Maybe they will think on it and get back to you. That might take a short time, a few years, maybe never. You can only admire how they be true to themselves. If they tell you it will be a certain way, you can trust that will be so.

Yoga is known for flexibility, for it’s dedicated breath work, prana, the life force itself. It is known for requiring strength. The United Nations International Yoga Day, recently established in 2015, is June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares special significance in many parts of the world. In the US it correlates with Father’s Day, the third Sunday in June. We expect a lot of our men, to be strong all the time, to have patience beyond measure for mere mortals. We want them to protect us, yet be flexible to grow with us as times change. For Yoga Day to be theirs is suitable for our heroes! And they will have better health and a longer life for us to love them!

The most sacred possession you have is your own body ~ it is the instrument of your Soul’s music. That’s Taurus’s job. A good night’s sleep. Maybe a Salutation to the Sun upon waking up, to see that sunrise. Maybe you love the night time and seeing the beautiful stars and moon. Do what feels good in a good way, be peaceful to your own Self. Get exercise that keeps you on an even keel. A nature walk, taking your doggie or a good friend with you. Eat less, go for quality. It pays off in the long run. You are worth it. Sing with that lovely voice you have and take good care of your throat.

Be touched and give hugs. Do and get massages. Feel the water around your legs, the mud squish between your toes. Hold your face to the sun, let the sun warm your back, the wind ruffle your hair. Hear the crinkle of stepping on fresh snow, breathe deep taking in that snappy cold air. Heady! Lift your chin and let the sights tickle your eyes, the wildflowers in the meadow. Throw back your head and laugh because it’s all so amazing! Dance! Let your worries shape shift into another dimension. When you get back to work they shall have reordered themselves into an unexpected harmony, a doable scenario. You settle down to it.

Tauruses know the intrinsic values of things. Some things are lasting, permanent. Others things are transient, maybe flashy, but go their way shortly. Some become boring. Some we turn our backs on upon sight. Nope, not a step skipped or a moment’s hesitation, decision made. They are natural appraisers of land, people. They can feel you in a handshake, hear you in your voice, see the way you carry your body, or how your feet touch that ground, or as you walk through the door. Ask their advice and do listen.

One of the most valuable things to them is their connection with you. They are loyal to the ones they choose. They will be there for you. Make a point of being there for them too. Keep them in your heart. They are dedicated workers, often work with the land and earth in some way. They will make a stronghold for you, the children, their parents. They are sensuous lovers, love holding hands, snuggling in the flannels. Put your arm around their waist or shoulders. In the world, they make foundations to support important causes, may donate important property.

Thank you for being exactly who you are. Blessed be forever and ever.

Taurus 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Before dawn, Lyrid meteors in a dark sky Earth Day!

Lyrid Meteors Radiant Sky & Telescope

Thanks to EarthSky’s Bruce McClure for test, Sky & Telescope for image!

Early risers! April 21 to 23 – start watching late at night, or better yet in the hours before dawn Sunday, EARTH DAY, April 22. The annual Lyrid meteor shower will probably be at its best in the predawn hours, especially as the waxing moon will have set by that time. Assuming you’re in a dark location, you really can’t go wrong getting up in the hours before dawn Sunday and gazing skyward. You might catch some meteors, and you’ll surely see the three morning planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, plus the star Antares! April 23 AM only.

Taurus 2018  Timeline!

Apr

19  Happy Taurus!
22  Lyrids Meteors best in predawn AM
29  Full Pink Moon

May 15!
New Moon 4:48 AM Pacific
Uranus into Taurus! 8:23 Am Pacific
Mars into Aquarius, the Uranian sign! 9:55 PM Pacific
25 Jupiter in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces

By far, the most exciting aspect in Taurus 2018 is it hosts the Uranus sign change from Aries to Taurus at the Taurus NEW MOON! Fitting indeed! New beginnings! Mars is the planet of activation, ignition, leadership, action! Uranus is the planet of evolution, dramatic sweeping change! Things just won’t look the same a year from now!

We are in the last part of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, finishing completely May 3. Jupiter trines Neptune May 25, showing up in Full and New Moon charts now.

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Tauruses’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus May 15! They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!

With the multiple sign changes and retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

Continuing abiding Aspects: 

Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background! More

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Outer Planet Transits with Taurus 2018 – May 2019!

Taurus Skyline Dr Shenandoah National Park Wildflower Weekend

Skyline Drive, 105 miles. This route stretches through Shenandoah National Park, end-to-end, with the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and more than 1,300 species of plants. The annual Wildflower Weekend is in early May, featuring special talks and guided nature hikes showcasing local wildlife. Bucket list.

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 20 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Taurus is Pluto’s sign Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus and Capricorn are both earth signs. Taurus and Pluto both are money signs, Taurus is my money, the money at hand, in your pocket. Scorpio is our money, of couples and corporations, all big monies like insurance, grants, loans, mortgages. A working balance is called for paying what’s owed and some happiness spending money. Taurus is known for common sense, steady attrition. Pluto wants to invest your money, which may be a shrewd move, or scare you to death and you prefer your reserves to possible loss. Pluto may give Taurus the sense they are being manipulated, or used, or with Pluto’s keen observations you may feel like someone finally really understands you. In the face of Pluto’s possible obsessions, stand your ground, stay steady with your considerations. Pluto can be seductive, so give it time. Trust yourself, stay safe. They have their way; you have yours. Way.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces sees and dreams the vision, has empathy for those who suffer. Sometimes they need rescuing themselves, from being overwhelmed by what they see, from sadness that brings them down. Taurus helps steady that unbridled flow. Neptune symbolizes the flow of the land and seasons with its vast seasonal ocean currents. Taurus’s territory is what’s under his feet. Neptune swirls him to new shores. Neptune softens the deep consideration of Taurus’s ruminations, introduces a less obvious mystical sense into the mix. Though a bit unsettling, it removes that stubborn edge if you surrender. Things go a little faster, energy is released. Barefoot is best.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 4 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

In Aries, the spark may be a bit bright for Taurus. Taurus is the sign of rumination, the Bull and his 4 stomachs, digesting, absorbing, moving information from one dimension to the next, the ability to be still while doing so. There truly is progress, it just isn’t always visible. But conclusions are well thought out. Uranus electrifies, brings ideas ahead of their times, that mortify or magnetize! Intriguing show to say the least. We find ourselves thinking of them, questioning, even if we thought we disagreed. Maybe it is the manner of presentation rather than the ideas themselves. Maybe it’s time to kick up our heels and make a run for it!

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

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 4 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Taurus is pretty steady, but Chiron in Pisces is psychic at seeing what ails you. Might be food  – breads, cheese, sweets. Your body may be enormously physically strong, but too much of the wrong foods can trip you up, slow you down, cause tummy and other issues. Chiron looks at how that all can affect your attractiveness, self esteem, financial acuity, relationships – both lovers and children, your ability to take care of elders you love.

On a 51 year cycle, when Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, Taurus may be surprised to find ways to exercise that pleases them! Could be a bike ride, a ground covering walk in the woods! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with at times unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries intends to get right to it and Aries will be happily lead the way with innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. Taurus may find himself opening a gym with weights, competitive sports – boxing, martial arts. Chiron will show him new ways to do business, how to have relationships best suited to his Spirit, how to teach on the fly! 9 Years! They will congratulate each other for all the accomplishments – if they have time, LOL!

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through May 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn feels the support of fellow Earth sign Taurus. Taurus may be pushed by take-it-on Capricorn, but their intents are harmonious. Taurus wants a safe and comfortable home with good organic food in the kitchen. It knows the value of feeling well and having quality fare. Saturn will make demands and Taurus is willing to step up to the plate. Saturn realizes the value of experience and being steady under fire and is well pleased with Taurus’s contribution. Taurus may find themselves comfortably picking up the pace, especially with Capricorn’s expert time saving expertise. Saturn is grateful for Taurus’s dependability and loyalty. On both sides, be sure wages are fair and equitable for these benefits. 

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is a fire planet ready to inspire Taurus with its long vision. Taurus is Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus prefers their steady routine, so Jupiter needs to place it’s ideas in Taurus territory with a little care. Bring it to them bit by bit so they get used to it. Expect it to take a little extra time as you honor your friend’s needs to think things through. It’s not for anyone to win, but to do what works in your hearts. It can be a relief that you don’t expect everything to happen all at once. Early on, introduce your plan and make those steps realistic to the person at hand. If you try to be clever and trick your Taurus, that might work for awhile, but there is a core person in Taurus that won’t be used or abused. You might end up losing more than you ventured. On the other hand, let’s say it’s a plan you both can get behind, no matter how long it takes. They like your invitation and put heart and hoof into it! They offer steady support, telling key people how it makes fundamental good sense, and right behind them, you can do the fundraising.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Taurus believes in schooling, the more sensible the better. You may have to take them on a few journeys to see other ways of living, techniques of teaching at other schools. If they are pleased, they may fund the hospital teaching wing, or the church classrooms with daycare provided. If you travel, make your Taurus comfy and bring their favorite foods and blankies. Trains are lovely, the land is soothing to see. Get off the train, out of the car for walk breaks. Jupiter is always wanting to raise standards, are more all encompassing. It’s important to show your Taurus how this personally affects them and their loved ones. Programs for a cleaner planet, better land use, protecting pristine land and resources will go well with them. Ethics are important to Jupiter, the greater truth, higher meaning. Talk philosophy, sustainability. You may be surprised by the exchange. Jupiter helps us stretch, has robust health, generally lives long and prospers! Taurus may be impressed, or just not even notice. So point it out how they can translate that into their own lives, or to someone they love. Sometimes Tauruses are working with such dedication you have to open the door yourself.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundant and better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.
