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

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

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

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

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

Cardinal Grand Square – Mercury to Uranus/Pluto/Saturn with Mars Square Neptune!

Father’s Day this year will really be a 4 day affair, the 17th through the 21st, with emphasis on communication!  Mercury in Cancer will make three challenging aspects over those days.  It starts with a shake up, open-the-gates square to Uranus in Aries, midday the 18th.  That’s a mind changer, free-thinker, alone or together, wants different, I’ll tell you one better than that!  It is concerned about the monies of a career or business.  Caution on contracts with friends.

Midday Father’s Day, June 19, Mercury opposes Pluto in Capricorn.  Intimacy, sharing of secrets, could be unsettling, bring a surprise closeness, revelations about parents’ relationships or mates, even friends.  Money matters.   Loans, grants, funding may seem out of reach, yet, the connection is there to follow.  The past is the past.  Let it go if it makes sense.  Forgiving doesn’t mean you have to forget or leave yourself unguarded.  Do be careful with what you say and in front of whom.  When in doubt, don’t, is a good way not to get into something you never meant to happen.  Sometimes repairs, amends, are possible, other times, not.  Be very gentle.

Midday June 21, Summer Solstice, Mercury squares Saturn in Libra.  This finishes the set.  Now there have been a few days to mull things over, this aspect becomes important because Saturn rules Fathers!!!  Mercury wants to talk.  Will that be ok?  Are all parties ready?  This calls for respect in every direction.  Brittle and rigid don’t work well.  Panic defenses need to be set aside.  Deep breath.  Keep the installments short with plenty of time outs.  Make a commitment to  carry on in a short time after the adrenaline has settled.  Don’t let fears amplify while you keep someone waiting.

Some very beautiful progress can be made here, unraveling long-standing issues.  What’s most at stake is the way you all talk about things.  Respect, open heartedness.  Bumbles will be made.  We are all learning.  Parents too.

All these days, Mars in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces, also exact on Summer Solstice!  Mars is the Aries planet of war, but also inspiration and leadership.  Neptune is the God of the Sea, from rock-me-in-the-cradle waves to tsunamis!  Push kindly for what you want, don’t swamp the ship!

See June 18 to 21 below for more perspective about this aspect set.

Please do have a most precious Father’s Day!  I would love to hear your stories how this unfolded for you and your loved ones!

There is a powerful set of planetary aspects leading up to Neptune entering its OWN SIGN Pisces!

April 1, April Fool’s Day, Mars enters its own sign Aries, making that then FIVE planets in ARIES!  Since Mars is in his perihelion year (closest to the Sun and moving fastest), recently at maximum perihelion March 9, he is still moving fast, speeding up our responses. In his own sign, things will be even more to the point and ASAP.  An independent note is alive, and survival has great depth of meaning after the Japan quake & tsunami.  Mars’ perihelion was only two days before the quake, and in Pisces, the sign of the ocean, tsunamis.  In a manner of speaking, there has been a tidal clearing, and now it is time to pioneer what will be one of the most amazing creations of our modern times.  The Japanese rebuilding will be able to model fuel efficient cities, improvements in transportation systems, will have opportunity to create life supporting communities that are green beyond our wildest dreams!  Tradition will encounter youth and inspiration.  It will take courage and tremendous respect to introduce and strategize improvements that will still be comfortable for elders, keep them feeling close to their roots, yet be better for them as well.  The Japanese have always been famous for their warriors.  Now it will take all their poise, to live on the edge of the sword in a good way.

April 3 is a remarkable day with the Aries New Moon leading at 7:32 AM Pacific, Mars conjunct Uranus 1:52 PM, and Saturn at Opposition (Sun) 4:58 PM!

April 3 the new Moon will be 13 Aries 30, and the Moon’s presence then makes SIX planets in ARIES!  Often New Moons are quiet affairs, but this one may not be so.  Aries isn’t famous for quiet or staying in bed, so don’t be surprised if you feel yourself being prodded to action.  Since it is early Sunday morning, why not plan ahead for something new for breakfast, try out a new recipe, go out to a restaurant with a sunrise view!  Maybe there is a little project you would love to get out of the way and it goes quickly.  Go see some new property, an open house.  Meet some friends for a bike ride!  You may not feel like Church, or the speaker may be super inspirational.  If you know others are going to be moving faster, plan ahead so you can do your best to keep up in cheerful spirits.  Have your cuppa at easy access.

April 3 Mars conjunct Uranus!   Happens every two years, so many of us are born with it, and we know what it means!  We love our computers, when we aren’t frustrated with them.  We have independent friends, lots of them.  We know what brainstorming and barnraising can do – multiply power, do what one can’t do alone.  Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help simply because we are curious what will happen if we don’t.  Sometimes we are brought to our knees and we are so touched by help given even when we didn’t ask.  This conjunction is in ARIES, so independence is even more pronounced.  Add in the ability to be the fighter, for better or worse.  Exuberance and enthusiasm may be over the top, to you, but not to the person who has this in their chart!  They are just getting started!  Give them room, and let them run circles around you – they can work, you can watch!  That’s divine economy, right?  Give them an electric bicycle!  They will be thrilled.

Worldwide, the day of, or the day before or after, may bring surprising news, more crisis fighting, rebels may renew their fight, huge explosions, angry words, shocking votes, affairs or improprieties.  There is a lot of stress with a New Moon (Sun and Moon both pulling at the same side) and the Sun opposition Saturn pulling at each other.  

April 3 Annual Saturn at Opposition (the Sun). The ringed planet will be at its closest approach to Earth. This is the best time to view and photograph Saturn and its moons. For us in everyday life, Mar 30 to Apr 3 is during Mercury retrograde, and also, by its own nature, is not a time to start a new project. Yet, many will, and the challenges will be to overcome fears, depression, decipher what’s real, how much time it will take, how to access resources and tools, whether to give in or give up. If you overcome the difficulties, it will feel like such an achievement. You may not smile, or there may be a sober one, but there’s a good chance you will be glad you went ahead. Be ready for it to be a continual learning experience, and each step may go far more quickly than you ever thought possible. When you reach those breaking points, sleep on it, see how it goes the next day. Follow your heart.

This aspect involves creator Father Sun, and patriarchal guardian, Father Time Saturn, of age and mastership.  Fathers.  Sun is Self, your individual giving self.  Saturn, planet of achievement, says you must prove yourself, earn it.  At opposition suggests a standing apart, in full appraisal of the advantages of both positions.  Sometimes it calls for letting go, other times a shaking of hands across the table, mutual respect.  One is simply at large; the other demands you take full responsibility.  Does your career choice sit well with your Spirit?  Are you making the same choices as your Father did, your Mother wanted your Father to make?  Is that ok with you, or do you need to rebalance your choices?   

It’s like all the equipment is in order!  Mars is feisty in its own sign, getting things done.  Conjunct Uranus it is super charged, electrified!  The New Moon stamps the ticket for new beginnings, firey and forward!  Sun Saturn add a serious, collect yourself, let’s get the job done!  Now…. 

Here is the chart of Neptune into Pisces, Santa Barbara CA! 

Neptune into Pisces 2011, Santa Barbara CA

April 4 NEPTUNE enters its own sign PISCES, during a SIX planet Aries stellium, which happens to be in three pairings:  Mars conjunct Uranus – innovation & change, the Sun conjunct Jupiter – lucky & expansive, and Mercury conjunct Moon – puts words to the feelings & mindful of women! 

It’s nothing new that Neptune and Chiron have been traveling together.  Now they are both in Pisces.  Please see Chiron into Pisces.  Chiron is traveling about two times as fast as Neptune, so will be moving on, leaving Neptune behind, though both will be in Pisces for the next seven years.

Neptune enters its own sign Pisces only once every 168 years, and we get to experience it!  The day after Saturn at opposition and the Aries NEW MOON, in the middle of all the ARIES excitement, Neptune, planet of Pisces, quietly goes into Pisces!  Neptune/Pisces represent enchantment, addictions, art, music, Magic, starlit nights at sea, howling gales over the ocean, retreats, Spirit, dreams, visions, psychic awareness, the Unseen, the Great Mystery. In the mid of Aries’ fast amped pace, take time to check in with your Spirit Guides, pay attention to your intuition, get the rest you need. Walk on the wharf. Get some negative ions up your nose, clear your brain space with some peppery salt air! Feel the crash of the waves, take off your shoes. Take the cruise you’ve always wanted to, let the wind whistle between your teeth!  If you live inland, get to the sea when you can; do your equivalent. Meditate, imagine. Plant your seed dreams.  Rise and fall on the waters of life.  Rock in the cradle of the primordial ocean, where life crawled out of the sea…..

Trust is a primal matter.  After Japan, some will look askance at my talking of the sea the way I have.  Yet, those of us who live by the sea, feel her calling.  We live at her edge, see her seasons, her rhythm, astonishing sunrises and sunsets.  We develop respect because we see her take what she does.  It’s true.  Some drown, some are eaten.  Yet, she comforts us, shows us magnificence, gives us gratitude, perspective, humbles us with her sheer size and intricate tiny creatures.  Most of us won’t move away.

This is early days yet, only the first few degrees of Pisces will be really activated so far – those of you born the first few days of your signs. Your turn will come. It may be challenging for the other mutable signs, Gemini, Sagittarius are square, and Virgo opposite. Gemini wants to talk; Pisces loves solitude and silence. Sagittarius is puppy dog friendly, likes to tell stories; Pisces, loves solitude and silence. Virgo likes to dig in, figure things out; Pisces uses intuition. Cancer and Scorpio are the other Water Signs. All function at instinctual levels, Cancer in behalf of home and family, Scorpio for one’s mate and money, Pisces for God and Soul.

Aug 4 Neptune retrogrades back into Aquarius, reviews its network of spiritual friendships, weakspots in the web may be repaired.  Feb 3, 2012, Neptune reenters Pisces until Jan 2026, 14 years.

I wish you well on this Magical Visionary Voyage we are all about to encounter!

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.

We are now on the threshold of Chiron entering Pisces for 7 years!

SEVEN years! Those 7 years will be in the same time Neptune is in its own sign Pisces, which starts April 4 for 15 years!  That happens only every 168 years, and WE get to live it!!!!  Double, even triple , magic of misty watery Pisces!  And Neptune enters Pisces during the super charged firey Aries Stellium!  It’s going to be off to a tremendous start!  What it dreams, it does!  Complete and perfect intuition inspires instant responsive positive action!  Pisces can be shy, even timid, until it gets a cause to live for!  Then, by God and Great Spirit, things happen with bells on!  I hope you are graced with inspiration like none other, that fills your Whole Soul!

Jupiter left Pisces Jan 22, now passing the baton to Chiron.  Jupiter was the precursor, looking for truth (Wikileaks), opening up then focusing on the point of selection, looking for the good in all ways.  Chiron is considered to be a wound that happens, or a wound that needs healing.  And, is considered to be a healer; it knows how because it has been there.  Which begets the teacher! If you know how to heal, you can show others.  Pisces loves being the savior or being saved, so it looks like a good fit. Spiritual business will be done.

Healings may be more subtle, invisible, invincible in Spirit.  Spiritual wounds of feeling forsaken, misuse of spiritual power or powers, fear to step out of the shadows of past life ‘mistakes’ or punishments, living without mission, or matters of mercy, may be kinds of healings that occur both to oneself, and, or in behalf of others.  They may somehow find mending, a quelling of misspent imagination, an inner reweaving of the strings of life as twined with others’ hearts, in a sensitive moment of seeing from a different facet or vantage point of compassion long-awaited.  There is a gentling, and yet a tsunami of merging, not just looking at a person or situation, but seeing it as if you were the other person!

The Magi astrologers tell a different, or perhaps an additional story.  They say Chiron is the #1 marriage factor in charts, love heals, and is a great business planet!  Partners make more money!  Marrying in Pisces is a cautions affair however.  The worst is just plain denial, then the words ‘I just can’t believe it!’ If your friends say you are missing the signals, I would get the credit check and give it some time to prove out.  The other side is marriage made in heaven.  In surety.  A gift of union Spirit-made.  May you walk in Beauty.

Businesses that are of a Pisces nature may flourish!  Anything ocean related, musics and arts, dancing Spiritually, retreats, magic and intuition, fine wines to feet treatments, computer programming, films, theatre, visionary repertoire, tending eyes and how we see, conscious dreaming!  Throw in the spice of Chiron, and we are adding a business of curing whats needed in any of those fields, a marriage blend of any of those elements, the consultant, coach, seminars that uplift our goals and ideals!  Blessed be.

Chiron enters Pisces Feb 8, Neptune April 4!  Marriages, healing, business, magic!  It will be a spiritual renaissance for those willing, ready, and able! Music and art will fill new dimensions.  Compassion and insight will be called for as the world tussles with resurrection after Pluto in Capricorn topples the old ways to the ground!  Stand tall, Live deep, LOVE well!

Please refer back to Chiron from Pisces, back into Aquarius, July 20 to Feb 8, 2011!
