Wesak Full Flower Moon!

Venus Grand Water Trine, TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis!

Tuesday May 29 at 7:19 AM Pacific, 8 Sagittarius/Gemini 10

Gemini Full Flower Moon 2018

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29 in 2018! Please join a celebration in your area as fits your beliefs.

The second retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is followed by our Wesak Full Flower Moon spanning Sagittarius to Gemini. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. 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 psychic believer and dreamer 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 be taking a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time.

This Full Moon, the trine is especially blessed since Venus is joining them, making a Grand Water Trine! She is coming in at 11 Cancer and will trine Jupiter then Neptune exactly June 1 and 2! Jupiter can be an over honest good-time Charlie, yet in Scorpio sees deeply into our psyches, our deepest hurts and greatest powers. And makes us laugh anyway. Neptune in his own sign Pisces can seem oblivious, oozing along with no particular preference, but when on his feet, the whole Universe is tuned in and turned ON! He makes music beyond words that calls to every molecule in your body! You want to save the World. Venus in Cancer loves oh, so tenderly and is aware of every nuance of feelings. She has the softest touch, cradles you in her arms. She both prepares you to face your demons and comforts you when you have. She assists with memories, the subtle notes that call your Soul. She makes you care again and, after any crying is done, has the business skills to put you on the map! Jupiter has the funding, and Neptune has the Spirit!

The sacred journey is being planned; multilingual Gemini is spreading the Word! The recent Jupiter/Neptune trine, May 25 Pacific, was at 16 degrees, and stays close in degrees until the third and last one Aug 19, 2018 at 15 degrees. Though not in close degrees with the Full Moon, this Full Moon is the first within this span of Jupiter and Neptune traveling together. This is a period of possible dreams come true! Do some serious thinking May 29 through June 2 about what you would like to see happen. Set up the steps to be taken. Let it develop and grow. See more!

Gemini and Sagittarius, mind and meaning! 

Moon in Sagittarius runs away from home – and sometimes the grass really is greener! Already the little explorer instinctively knows there is much to observe, learned, find the greater meaning of. Philosophy and ethics are important. There is confidence and with big natural smiles they attract the help they need and travel in safety spinning memorably tall tales along the way. A broad perspective brings wisdom and justice. They are great athletes and winning gamblers! Their mothers may read to them from the very beginning, homeschooling no surprise.

Sun in Gemini is a strong quick thinker, speaks the words of the heart! Geminis cheer us to expand our thinking. Fathers have a special way of taking our hand, walking us along, listening to us. There is a radar for sincerity, knows when we are afraid, or in pain. In his huge capacity of experience, he is there when we go awry and lose our center amongst the amazing array of information we encounter. He shares his facts and covers the bases, is multifaceted, sometimes ambidextrous. There are so many possibilities! He is highly aware how important touch is, holds us close, yet encourages us to think for ourselves, shine our own light as we venture forth.

In the immediate background, the North Node and Saturn are at 7 degrees, the Full Moon just past them at 8 degrees. The North Node in Leo sextiles the Gemini Sun, trines the Moon. Both of those are classically positive aspects, opportunities for the Sun as the Node in the Sun’s sign Leo lights the way with courage and even bigger thinking! Makes you feel good to be your most glorious self! The Node invites the Sagittarius Moon to step forward as a coach with leadership stories based on personal experience. Nothing like real stories to inspire us to take that chance. If we fail at first, we know we can try again with a slightly different tilt! Gemini knows there are endless options; evolution is happening every moment!

Mercury is at 29 Taurus, the last degree, about to go 0 Gemini! All last degree points have a sense of maturity, finality, ending, hopefulness that the foundation is strong, ready for the next step of the journey. 29 Taurus is a little more serious being at the degree of the Pleiades, the Weeping Sisters. Also it rules the throat and strangling and hanging are not so good an ending. So be clear about how your life is heading. If you start feeling suffocated, at the end of your rope, time to realign! Prepare for stable background work that will hold the promise of your future.

Gemini, the next sign, is the Sun’s sign this Full Moon, and Mercury is Gemini’s planet, so this Mercurial transition is important. Mercury is semisextile the wild card Uranus, then sextile Chiron. Mercury and Uranus both have to do with communications. Mercury is your personal thinking. Uranus is collective thinking – humanity, the Internet! Uranus is now in Taurus, so we think of Gaia, the environment of our bodies and Souls. It helps to keep us grounded as evolution is speeded up. Chiron offers opportunities to access healing informations, teaching options, business connections, meeting fast thinkers like himself! Stand up with both eyes open! As one teacher said, Where your focus goesyour energy flows. Another way of thinking of this is Mind over Matter!

TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis! One person summarizes, ‘The eastern royal star Aldebaran, the star of illumination, is directly across the zodiac from Antares, the star of anger, pride and revenge. This is the only exact opposition of two major stars!’ They are also two of the four Archangel stars, the four Royal Stars of Persia, the Four Guardians of Heaven. Ferocity required! In about 4 hours the Moon will be opposite Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47 and in less than 2 days, the Sun will conjunct Aldebaran, the most famous of the four Archangel stars, represents St Michael! Aldebaran is God’s military commander and opposite his nemesis Antares at 9 Sagittarius 46! Antares is the Watcher of the West, guardian of the doors to the underworld at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Shiver.

Robson says Aldebaran, in the constellation Taurus, gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. Researcher Ebertin says Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods, shipwrecks. Acknowledged and leading position, but will make enemies through whom danger will threaten. Extraordinary energy. Bernadette Brady says you will face moral dilemmas that challenge your integrity. Avoid temptation to compromise.

Antares is said to make people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. Clearly, this is a ‘be careful’ star.

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

Blessed be, you and the Buddha. May your MoonLight be flowerful!

NEW MOON – Two T Squares, Uranus and Chiron!

Wednesday June 13 at 12:43 PM Pacific, 22 Gemini 44

Gemini New Moon A Dark Sky studded with Stars Dark Purple Roses and Dewdrops

A dark New Moon sky studded with stars is similar to these dark purple Roses with galaxies of dewdrops.

This will make the last of 6 lunar events in a row that we have had planets at 29 degrees, the last degree of their signs. Both in Aries it was Chiron at 29 degrees Pisces. In Taurus it was Uranus at 29 Aries, then Mars 29 Capricorn. The May 29 Gemini Full Moon it was Mercury at 29 Taurus, and now it’s Venus at 29 Cancer! Finishings it has been, on the brink of new beginnings. In order, Chiron, Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Venus.

Venus at 29 Cancer sums up Mother’s love, our role as a child. She started out as but a baby girl herself. Her own Mother did as best she could. Maybe she was unable and let others do what they could. Maybe she came from a long line of dedicated capable loving Mothers who passed on that heritage and that baby girl became a wonderful Mother too. Zodiacally our charts may be easy with our Mums, partially or wholly challenging, or we were just born to do destiny on our own, Mum supplying the birth. Venus in Cancer can give a child a profound love and admiration for our Mum, or a knowing that we must love ourselves as we are even if Mum doesn’t. Venus in Cancer can give an abiding love for femininity, women, the Matriarchy, our home and community, culinary prowess, instinctual nurturing, Mother Moon! This is an important primordial placement for self-esteem, for a good quality of life.

Furthermore, Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! See more below…

Moon and Sun are at 22 Gemini 44! Love those double numbers! So apropos for Gemini, sign of the Twins! I’m always in awe of this Moon/Sun merger! Bright as Sun is, Moon is there to shelter and nurture! Sun reminds her to take some time for herself and brightens her day! Moon in Gemini is careful with her words, has a lot she has collected to say. Mercury is in Moon’s sign Cancer, as Moon is in Mercury’s sign Gemini, mutual reception. Touching family memories are shared, more images taken for the album. Mercury remembers the dates and details, who was where, when and why, family lineage, making Moon quite happy to have the whole story. Venus in Cancer too, remembers sweet anecdotes of gatherings and who brought that delicious food and recipe! Sun is gallant and heroic with his words. He inspires all with his dramatic experiences and reenactments. The whole combination is heartfelt.

Moon and Sun recently inconjuncted Pluto in Capricorn, but make no close upcoming aspects to any planet. Darker factors of the past may need a warm gathering to heal difficulties that have lingered. And it’s good to get clear that was then, this is now. Don’t let emotional or psychic hangovers tarnish the goodness we have now. We have outgrown many old fears and built a more sturdy mindfulness now. If it isn’t much better now, see to it.

Two T Squares!

A T Square has a baseline of two or more planets opposite each other with another planet or planets equidistantly placed between them at approximately 90 degrees, the midpoint. It’s the very function of equidistance that gives additional potency! The Midpoint factor receives equally, no value difference. So the two powers merge without prejudice – neither submerged nor overshadowed by the other. The Magi astrologers say the midpoint is a fusion or melding together of the baseline planets’ symbolisms. If there is a planet(s) at the midpoint that energy activates the point planet and the point planet radiates to the baseline planets! Potency! Two expert sources are Reinhold Ebertin, German midpoint master – dead on interpretations, and the Magi Society astrologers. Learn more about midpoints at Cafe Astrology.

Any two planet(s) make two midpoints, one on either side of their baseline. There can be a planet there or not. Since they can be on either side of the baseline, there is a completely different sequence of signs. For example, our fixed T Square has Uranus in Taurus at its T point, making the sign sequence Aquarius, Taurus, Leo. If instead the T point planet(s) was in Scorpio, the sign sequence would be Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, a very different tone! And though there happens to be no planet there, that midpoint in Scorpio is still a sensitive point. One of your Scorpio planets might fill that spot.

The midpoint planet(s) can act as sender of the collective energy of the base group. It can act as a probe, the rep of the base group. It can seek fertile territory, as a ‘dowser,’ seek information sources to receive from, channel home to the people, act as a collector. It probably can do both simultaneously. As soon as information is received, it changes the substance of the search! The search instantly has greater capacity, becomes new and scans wider and further! It’s a living process.

In everyday traditional astrology oppositions have their maximum differences, the widest possibilities of reach. Squares break things down, break up, and break through. The mid planet(s), the planet(s) at the T point, interrupt the status quo the two opposite points may have settled at. There can be a surge of energy as we let go! Grabbing new ground makes sense. Jam the wedge in and keep the gates open. Take a good look and see if you want to go there, where you want to go. Get up and ride!

One T is the predominantly fixed T Square spanning the Nodes Aquarius to Leo, Venus at 29 Cancer at the North Node, Mars at the South Node in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus at the point. Fixed signs are meant to anchor and stabilize important factors in our lives. They often stand true as ones we can depend on when life is chaotic.

Venus makes the link that makes the T Square. She is at 29 Cancer, the powerful last degree of the sign! Cancer is a cardinal sign, all the rest of the factors in the T are in fixed signs Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Cardinal signs get things started and keep them moving! Fixed signs stabilize the achievement. Venus enters Leo 2 hours after the New Moon; Leo holds the Light forever in his heart! In Leo she makes the exact square to Uranus the day after the New Moon.

Venus in Cancer loves her nest, her family’s culture, tradition, homespun art. She stands for women, children, the young, the feminine. Uranus needs freedom, is avant garde, the Awakener before his time, concerned for humanity at large, planetary matters. His friends and associates, international gatherings are where his attention is. The internet is his tool of choice. In Taurus he’s a little more calm about it, and has some unexpected patience, but change there will be. The homestead, the animals, food sources, clothing – elemental commodities, our bodies. The definition of Beauty will change. We will be attracted for different reasons than before and want different things. As an ally, Venus will lend her Grace, give the personal caring human touch when Uranus doesn’t seem to care. Uranus likely sees how important her presence is, even more than she does, though he may not say so because so much is on his mind. Be good if he would let us know where we stand with each other… He’s so erratic, Venus may find it hard to find a moment to give praise for his works. Take some time for personal exchanges. Things will go better for it.

The North/South Node on the Leo/Aquarius axis is the baseline of the T. They are always retrograde, so they are going back to meet Venus, and they too will be squaring Uranus shortly. Venus will be at the North Node, the node that we are working to strengthen, to balance with the South Node of the past. The south in Aquarius means we worked with powerful groups of people before. The north, supported by Venus’s blessing, in Leo helps us keep our own counsel, regardless what a group wants us to think. We must stay with our heart, be good in our own personal way, put our stamp on it that others may recognize that special Light! Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is the planet of unique, so there is harmony. Him in Taurus may seem oh, so, slow, to that S Node in Aquarius, but too fast, getting before our time, has prices to pay too. Take it easy, find your rhythm and right timing.

The North Node and Saturn at 6 degrees are separating from an inconjunct. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is another calming planet that develops self-discipline. The node considered Saturn’s guidance at its neighboring sign to the S node. Saturn wants to use the past with moderation to achieve the work of the heart at the N node.

Mars in Aquarius was just activating the retrograde South Node and is well past the square with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mars has a bold presence that isn’t usually easily dismissed or quickly forgotten! He moves swiftly to take action that makes change that can’t be undone so the initiation of the process is assured. We may have hoped for such a thing to happen for a long time. It may not start as we anticipated, so you gotta be fast on your feet and leave that delete button alone! Give it a chance, wait to see what happens and what might come of it!

The other is a cardinal T Square formed by baseline planets Mercury in Cancer opposite Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Chiron takes the point in Aries! If we have Uranian change, we need a healer and teacher to let go the past and open us to future potential! Cardinal signs get us started and keep us in motion. Sometimes they have the ideas that we need the fixed signs to anchor and nurture in place. Other times they sweep in, clear the debris of old thinking, give away the old stuff in the garage, make new arrangements, inspire us to work updated ventures!

Mercury in Cancer questions you gently, but reminds you to take responsibility to self-nurture and kindly speak to help others. You know how Cancers are accused of being crabby, or a little shrill. Well that happens to the best of us at times. We sometimes forget how others are so sensitive even if they seem not to be. Mercury can give instructions about caregiving, mothering, how to listen to your parents and understand they have feelings too. If you ask a Mercury in Cancer what they think they will say, I feel… It’s good to have both logic and sensitivity. Mercury in Cancer may do a lot more listening than you would expect, even be a bit shy.

Oh contraire with Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He wants to get things done in the least time with the least effort at the least expense. He is Father to Cancer the Mother though she may be the one he bows to! Moms are the cosmic authority no amount of credentials apply to! But who pays the rent?! Saturn gathers us up, goes over the project, makes assignments per our individual skills, checks on our work. He makes sure the client is kept in the loop and secures further work, makes follow ups. And pays our wages. He’s a terrific role model for the youngers, and often makes arrangements for our eldears. (My word.)

Chiron gives us the boot! Aries is no sleeping dog! Woof! Walkies?! You bet! More like at a run. He darts back and forth between Cancer and Capricorn! Cancer is at home but needs to get out and about, inspire the kids! Capricorn, a traditionalist, needs to be shown the new ways quickly, showing how they make a better product, working procedures, more profit. Chiron is good at business and Aries is the leader consultant! Chiron is the healer and teaches how to live well. Old wounds are tended lovingly or lovingly impatiently because he knows we can do it. So we get up and go! And, in Aries, we just plumb leave them behind, even forgot them! Relationships sure take a turn for the better as we are able to put more positive energy in the present than in the sadness of past losses! Aries is the hero, our inspiration, activation, the first! We can do it!

There are three factors linking the two Ts! The Ts are working together!!!

  1. Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! Square Uranus she pleads with him to spare the innocent. His job is big, to affect vast numbers of people at once, and sometimes there are casualties. He does what he must. But leader to leader, there are considerations in the grand scheme of things. Kindness can make THE difference. She trines Chiron, but out of sign, Cancer to Aries, water to fire! Aries may make a run for it, being allergic to someone asking him to wait. His kind of responsibility is to be there first, help instantly. She may think he should be more kind, follow up, but he’s wise to know himself and have someone else do that follow up part. She herself is about to go into Leo, the next fire sign, and they will be more easy together, though Aries sometimes thinks Venus is just too soft, and in Leo perhaps a bit lazy, spoiled, selfish. Could be true, but ultimately she finds she can give and is a loving teacher with all kinds of heart! Together they can be magnificent! From a Cancer foodie to an athlete!
  2. As Venus comes forward, the Leo North Node, the N Node always retrograde, is going back to trine Chiron. N Nodes are the new territory, compared to the S Node representing what we did so well we did it bad or overdid it. Seeking a better balance, it is scary to leave an old familiar way. We could make a fool of ourselves, be clumsy, a bit awkward. And what Leo ever wanted that?! Humbling, I say, especially since a few days ago the S Node was with Mars in Aquarius, gleefully up to his old tricks with the gang! But it does feel good to be on his own in Leo, just be himself with no expectations or feeling obliged to the group. Do something, do nothing. Deep breath and be happy.
  3. Mercury, in the cardinal T square, just made a sextile with Uranus, the point of the fixed T Square, tying the two T Squares together. Sextiles connect mixed but favorable elements, in this case earth and water. Earth channels let water flow. Uranus is the most long term factor active in this chart. Both planets have to do with mind signs, Gemini, what’s in our head, and Uranus higher mind of collective humanity, genius and evolution, awakening! Mercury has the information, Uranus has the friends to carry it all over the world! Internet.

Saturn is retrograding back to square Chiron, but Chiron retrogrades before Saturn gets there. They do get close and the sniff factor is there, but no consummation. The worst fears make you take notice, but won’t happen, but they do indicate what could. There may be business and relationship difficulties that need attention. Health troubles are possible. Could be delays. Saturn is working hard in his sign, and Chiron has some new solutions. Give them a listen. Things don’t have to get dire to make excellent changes. See what you can do. You’ve been warned.

Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter is retrograde, in close aspect until the third and last trine Aug 19. 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! 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.

Use these powerful T Squares standing up! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, Chiron is the Healer/Teacher. Sounds perfect!

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.

Yod Saturn/Venus + Moon’s Nodes Square Full Moon! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Sunday April 29 at 5:58 PM Pacific, 9 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Stunning Full Pink Moon Crested Butte CO by Stan Rose

Full Moon rising over East Fork, Crested Butte, San Juan Mountains, Colorado by Stan Rose

This is the last Moon before Uranus changes signs, from Aries into its first taste of Taurus in 84 years! The sign change first happens just after the New Moon May 15!

This Full Moon has the Moon in Scorpio. Some say the Moon in Scorpio delves deep into past lives, the meaning of life and death, obsessing and purging, mortification and soul retrieval, subsequent healing. It looks into the crevices, or is that crevasses, of the convolutions of our relationships, financial innuendos, secrets. The fire at the base of the spine, the Kundalini, may be ignited! The Phoenix rises. If you weren’t powerful before, you will be now! Not for the faint of heart!

The Sun in Taurus leads out of darkness into the Light, steady and trustworthy, a safe way and place to go. The wings of the newborn butterfly emerge, are spread wide to dry, gather strength after the transition. They are folded and unfolded, flexing for their ascension. This seems especially true with Uranus, the planet of flight, at the super potent last degree of Aries, the sign of ignition! We need that grounding and centering Taurus gives us. We will need to be strong and dependable to stabilize the coming changes.

Saturn, in its own sign Capricorn, is at the same degree as the Full Moon! Saturn wants a reliable structure, a strong boundary, to keep safe within, to protect from without. It sextiles the Moon, lending business opportunities. It trines the Sun, building a timely reputation of personal achievement. Things get done and on time. This combination is not impetuous, can bring about long thought out mergers and marriages, successful parenting.

Saturn is also Yod, at an ‘opposite’ point between Venus and the North Node. Both Venus and the Node are moving toward Saturn’s degree. Venus is in Gemini being glib or glissando! She shares the gossip and valuable data, introduces you to people who have just the information you need, and spreads the word about what an asset you are! The blog needs updating and some attention. The North Node can be a shy point in Leo, but rather than being so concerned what others think, it’s time to express your unique gift, what’s always been in your heart to do! Step into the light! Shake hands, let that Venus breath of beauty, those sweet words, give you the courage. Shake loose, stand tall!

The Full Moon crosses the Moon’s Node axis at right angles, making a fixed Grand Square! Fixed squares are known to have long standing issues hard to change. Taurus is mine; Scorpio is ours, but I will have some on the side, a personal account as well. Aquarius is the ‘past’ South Node. I had many friends and associates and depend on them, perhaps too much. The Leo North Node calls us to ‘be’ ourselves, in full radiant primal glory, to take our personal place in the Sun. This can be the leader of the tribe! The angle signs have their challenges. Taurus likes peace and quiet while Leo has the rock band rattling the windows! Leo wants you to adore them and show you off; Scorpio admires his investment, but prefers his secrets. Scorpio often works privately behind the scenes, while Aquarius is either the free loner never captured, or stirs up the masses into waves of collective change, no holds barred! Aquarius is electrification, the Awakener personified, genius ahead of its time; Taurus likes the comfort and beauty of our Earth, contemplation through saturation. From the Buddha at the roadside shrine to the Captain of the Rocket! Having mutual purpose is the key to putting all these talents together.

Mars conjuncted, was with Pluto in Capricorn the 26th. He quickly poked around in Pluto’s stockpile and dump, looked at his reserves, assessed the assets, offered some suggestions. Pluto warned him when he got too close to the boundaries, but listened to this upstart intruder who dared. Mars knew he could get away, but knew he would chance it. Pluto has traps set, security, but some traps are more of the psyche. That’s a whole nother story. Mars learned some tricks and even more clever ways to use resources, how to build from decay and destruction, release what has been bound. He carries this all forward. Much needed.

Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect Aug 19. 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 often go with the territory. 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! 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.

Right now, strengthen, work together, build, be mindful.

NEW MOON!

URANUS Sign Change, Double Earth Stelliums! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Tuesday May 15 at 4:48 AM Pacific, 24 Taurus 36

Taurus 2018 New Moon Uranus into Taurus

With 4 planets in Taurus, 3 in Capricorn, that’s 7 in EARTH signs, this is a super grounded practical New Moon. Sit with it. Even Uranus, the planet of space is coming in for a landing!

Notice that 00 Taurus 00 in the New Moon chart below! Today Uranus, the God of the Heavens, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus, the sign of Earth herself, on our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk about sex, money, death, food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, gay marriage and guns openly. We got television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! And now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus, Mercury and the Moon and Sun are all in Taurus emphasizing Uranus’s new sign!! Mercury can feel Uranus right behind him, etheric and electric! These two powerhouses of intellect have a lot to think and talk about. Uranus is considered genius, way ahead of his time, sometimes a little incoherent. Mercury is famous for connecting the dots, can spin and spit out yarns and info as fast as he can make his lips move, even in Taurus! He just talks about Taurus subjects instead of other info! Mercury gets the honors, is the first to greet this great and wild one! What we thought is not and no longer, now off the charts of ordinary conception. Keep your Spirit open and upward seeking!

Mercury in Taurus, the thinker/communicator is key. He just semi sextiled Chiron, newly in Aries, is excited about new remedies, businesses, relationships. Mercury trined Lilith, a harmony of intention to build new long lasting vessels dedicated to uphold divine law, create a working world order. Elders will guide and protect. Next, Mercury will trine Saturn, the one in charge, Father Time. Surrender as well as profound integrity and knowing are intrinsic components to their success. Last in the sequence is the square, challenge to the Moon’s Nodes, spanning Aquarius to Leo. Taurus aims to settle them down. Leo’s finery and Aquarius’s exotic untouchability, can put them off the charts. Taurus waits for their attention, eases them to put those factors to good use, and simplifies the how tos. Quite a chain of events, a complicated network.

The New Moon is last in Taurus. Cows and bulls are meant to take their time pondering. They know how to conserve energy. Others are running around while they are watching, chewing their cuds, working through those 4 part stomachs! They are digesting what they see, casting it in the best situation possible. They see if it stands the test of time, measure its value, get the most gain for the least effort. They often see what others don’t and waste little time in the long run. Tauruses can be gentle, comforting and uplifting. They praise us in truth and it means a lot coming from them. They are remarkably strong in temperament and physically. Business may start small, but it grows and grows through the years. They are loyal mates.

The Moon in Taurus makes a lovely home. Natural surroundings, breezes through the windows, flowers wafting their scents, veggies in the garden. She hugs the children, is herbalist to bruises and illnesses. She’s aware of investment cycles, often doing well financially, gives insightful advice. She may have a cosmetics shop, boutique of comfortable clothes, or a specialty foods, bakery, cheeses, flowers or natural foods market.

Sun in Taurus is a champion! He may be the one behind these businesses! He might specialize in native landscapes, run the nursery, drive the tractor at the farm or do urban digging for power and underground lines. He may have a knack for placing homes in harmony with the land, designing with a sustainable flair. Taurus has a 6th sense for textures, matching people with their best place. He has the strength to be a superb caterer using healthy foods. Or what about that restaurant?! Natural cosmetics. Strength to be a bodybuilder! Or to hold peace at the ashram or sanctuary?

Moon offers Sun her support. She makes him know how much she values him. He is her Light, and makes her know how much he appreciates her. She is the Emerald. The bond is beyond words. Affection. Venus, Taurus’s planet, is one sign away. As we talked about Mercury in Taurus, Venus, Taurus’s planet, is in Gemini, Mercury’s sign. When planets are in each other’s signs this way, it is called Mutual Reception. Each is blessed with a commonality of understanding, strengthened, and can be read in each other’s places in the chart. This New Moon linked with Venus, specifically picks up the entire Mercury network as well even though the degrees don’t connect!

Venus, though in Gemini, being Taurus’s planet, has a natural link to the New Moon. She blesses them with her words. She spreads the good word, supplies valuable feedback from the ‘hood, heals rifts. The Mercury links take that word to other collaborative businesses, women of power, opens gates to new options.

Taurus is the first of the Earth signs, feeds and shelters the tribe. Capricorn is the last Earth sign, attaining the heights! Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet is in Capricorn making his mark, collecting the land use fees and profits turning them back into building for the future – he’s already feeling the plans Jupiter has for the dreams and visions of Neptune! He wants to make them happen. Pluto is now in the last third of Capricorn, researching methods for healing problems of aging, cementing special behind the scenes alliances, securing funding. No sense rebuilding the old. He too is on board with creating what’s new and better, insightful and valuable. Capricorn is the master of long term goals and works hard to get there.

Mars sits at 29 Capricorn, the last degree, feeling the urgency to complete the necessities! At base is organizing so the project can continue effectively. He is a tad reluctant, after all he has worked for, since he senses all hell is going to break loose when he goes into Aquarius, Uranus’s unpredictable sign! Granted, it will not be so careful as Capricorn, but will be crazy creative! Ok, just be as ready as you can be. New techniques will turn the tables and the project will morph into something more advanced. The speed will be exhilarating!

As with the April 29 Full Moon above, Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, now on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect Aug 19. 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 often go with the territory. 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! 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.

Taurus makes us so aware of our bodies. Take good care of yours, use it with infinite respect.

Second Full Moon in March, Blue Moon!
Mars/Saturn, Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron 29 Pisces/Sheat!

Saturday Mar 31 at 5:37 AM Pacific, 10 Libra/Aries 45

Full Moon Raven by Girard

Wanderer’s Moon by Francois Girard. The magical Raven, a deeply mythic creature full of mystery and playful surprise! The knot work is inspired by Viking art.

Some call the second Full Moon in March the Crow Moon. It’s a Moon of deeper seeking. Among our relationships balance and unions are sought. In our Spirits, we master the realms above and below, air and earth, sunrise and sunset, firelight and darkness.

Moon in Libra is quite interested in these balances. We are looking for a working agreement, acceptance of differences – personal and cultural, each offering their own special talent. Beauty and comfort count. A lovely home matters as a gathering place for family and friends. Community law guides and keeps us safe. Women strive for equality. Libra enjoys political skirmishes as long as it is a fair fight.

Libra is ruled by Venus, who has just moved into her other sign Taurus. Taurus is steady, sometimes stubborn, generally patiently kind and supportive, even financially. There is a concern for being naturally healthy with radiant beauty like nature’s flowers. Good values are stabilized. Touch and comfort are given as possible. Massage and yoga make sense. As Venus goes by, appreciating our efforts, people relax and feel safe to listen to each other, find the good in what they each have to say.

Sun/Mercury in Aries, are on fire, independent, fearless leaders of heart and mind! Aries will take up Libra’s battle as a front line soldier of Light! Sun is teacher, generous, bold, in Aries, fresh! Mercury speaks quickly and to the point, in Aries often not mincing words. The invitation to do new, more and better is cast upon the wind and other people of courage respond to the call. Moon in Libra, the old pro, courts their intelligence, buffers and blends outspoken opinions, pulls the best ideas together, goes back and forth to get a working team, escorts them to the next level! The project takes off!

At various previous times they all were square Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. With Mars in Cap there is rewarding efficiency, getting the job done early and well. With Saturn there is restraint, consideration of the rules, cultural needs and respect, matters of age and wisdom. Now that Moon/Sun & Mercury are past this pair, they are off to meet new people, work on their own with constraints they have accepted, or with others as makes sense. They are more focused, mindful of priorities and the time it really takes. They keep the long term in mind.

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE  April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered. See more about the Sign Change!

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

Scheat, however is usually depicted differently. Robson said with Neptune (in Pisces): Prominent in inventive, occult or psychic matters, persecuted, peculiar domestic conditions, many accidents, danger of drowning. Ebertin more kindly says: Tied up with ‘malefics’, this could lead the native to lose his life in catastrophes, such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe suicide. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people, it can have a positive effect on their mental creativity, if these people are ready to receive such inflow.

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

3) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! 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.

Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

NEW MOON – Jupiter/Pluto, Mercury Direct!
Uranus Conjunct, Double Stelliums, Chiron Sign Change, Galactic Center!

Sunday April 15 at 6:57 PM Pacific, 26 Aries 02

2018 Aries New Moon Mercury Direct, Jupiter Sextile Pluto

There is a certain element of Ascension to this New Moon. It embraces many new beginnings, invites us to reach for so much more.

New Moons are often thought to be quiet. For water and earth signs that might be true, but not this one! Aries is the roman candle of the zodiac! They might burn bright and take a break, but they are back up soon again, lighting the night! Yes it may be dark out there, but all the better to see the contrast of night and bright! And for this New Moon, conjunct Uranus, the planet of AQuarius and the stars in the heavens, it’s going to be wild, admirably unpredictable, sudden and astonishing, unprecedented! Unforgettable. Your friends need to be there! Too good to miss, and to help you if you need it!

Moon feels his/her way about avoiding danger, soothing the troops, keeping everyone hydrated. She is quick to intervene if things get too hot. Sun may be strutting about a bit, feeling his oats, proud of his prowess. Not everyone may agree and that could be a tad prickly. But he is big hearted and may sing the praises of others as well. He wants to lead and lift them up.

An Aquarian/Uranian type who blows in may be so interesting everyone forgets their own pet peeves, and are enthralled by this remarkable stranger among them. Aquarians are often humanitarian in spirit. Intelligent beyond mere words. They can be so over your head you think they are crazy, but they may just be way further along the track than we are. They are evolutionists, in a manner of thinking, time travelers, almost as if they are from other worlds. And who’s to say they aren’t?! They can be oddly detached observers, seems like they don’t care, yet everything means something or they wouldn’t be hanging out. It’s a limbo stasis, suspense, waiting to see what happens. Gives everyone some time to think before….. If the unusual happens, take your time if possible. Could be worth the pause.

This condition of awakening Uranus brings may help us see a broader palette.

  1. April 13-16 We have Double Stelliums at the NEW MOON! 3 Planets in Capricorn – Saturn, Mars and Pluto plus 4 planets in Aries – Mercury and Moon/ Sun/Uranus! Capricorn the old, traditional, and the new, new, new!
  2. April 17-19  Moon has left Aries, Chiron has entered Aries maintaining the 4 planet Aries stellium!
  3. April 14 is the 2nd Jupiter sextile Pluto that has been continuous since the first one in January! See more
  4. The 15th is this New Moon trine the Galactic Center and Aries MERCURY DIRECT! Mercury is holding an 8 day station April 11 to 18. That’s a tremendous absorption, anchoring and focus!
  5. April 17 Chiron changes signs from Pisces to ARIES! It will be in Aries with Uranus for 28 days!

The New Moon in Aries, Chiron’s sign change into Aries, all the planets in Aries, add up to NEW BEGINNINGS in several areas at once!
It’s quite an opportunity, may be confusing and overwhelming, and will happen with or without you! You might as well be there and contribute your part, take from it in a good way! You will be the better for it! Even if the beginning isn’t 100% perfect, you are on your way! Fresh independence sure feels good.

The New Moon at 26 degrees Aries trine the Galactic Center makes for even more marvelous changes! We may need to think bigger than ever before! It calls us to act in behalf of the greatest good we can barely imagine. Sometimes you don’t have to understand it, just do it. There are times to trust higher knowledge and your instincts. It’s bigger than we are, sees far beyond the possible future we imagine.

Mercury in Aries is square Saturn. There are going to be delays, possible censoring until this square is over the 25th. There could be doubt, fear, a lack of backup expertise. Otherwise aspects are favorable, so keep working the rest of the project. Make proposals when things are better established and fall into place now that Mercury will soon be moving forward again after its 8 day station. Breakthroughs.

The March 31 Full Moon had Chiron at 29 degrees too, and this is the last of it for now…later on there will be another period at 29 Pisces. So again:

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! During the New Moon, Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered.

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task.

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter now has sextiled Pluto April 14! As the first aspect of 2018, it set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Ms Venus at 19 Taurus is opposite the ‘critical’ zodiacal degree 19 Scorpio. That was considered a dangerous degree by oldtime astrologers. Yet people are born on that degree and live well. At this New Moon Venus is opposite Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio has the deepest longings, even extreme obsessions and a hella lot of charisma! Venus, in one of her own signs Taurus, has or wants a deep connection with her body, to be attractive no matter how she actually looks, is often possessive and loves furs, sensation, good foods, textures. She may have a melodious voice, a sweet way about her, an enchantress in her own right. Values are emphasized. The inner self seeks right relationship with our planet and peace. Jupiter seeks the Truth, power from deep within to be used in a good way, to heal, teach others how to heal. Venus brings the people in, Jupiter gets to work.

Venus is powerfully placed, grounding those who are fearful. She trines, the most favorable link, Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. There is steady depth of attention brought to bear witness. Pluto in Capricorn records the event in the archives, documents errors, corrections, progress, that others may always do better still.

Venus has left a great aspect with Mars, has admired his sensibility, he is so glad he pleased her, feels great, is rarin’ to go! Mars further ties the group together! He sextiles, opportunity, Jupiter, exact the 23rd. He conjuncts Pluto, exact the 26th! Mars is initiation, activation, ignition, leadership, action! Jupiter sees the big Path long term; Mars jumps right on it speeding up progress. Pluto in Capricorn is the internal steering committee. Mars in Capricorn speaks their language, demonstrates his proposal, corrections, updates, protocol, and they are willing to go along with him. All in all, productive with the least effort in the shortest time with the least expense!

2) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! 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.

With Uranus so strongly with our Aries New Moon, don’t miss the window, cut loose!

Mercury Retrograde Odeleite Portugal Blue Dragon River

The Odeleite in the municipality of Castro Marim, Portugal, aka “The Blue Dragon River!” In China this traveler’s image went viral! The mythical beast symbolizes force, quality and good fortunes. Super auspicious! 

The fiery red upper reaches lead to the elegant blue below as the river widens to the lower lake. Ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends in the river can slow flood flow. Gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare. Much like our retrogrades that weave through life!

Mercury 2018 has the standard 3 Mercury Rxs with a fire sign emphasis. Fire by nature is somewhat ungovernable. Aries just gets there fast and first, zip! Leo is himself and no other. Sagittarius will not be stopped or owned. Fire can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warms your very Soul. It raises you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

This Aries Retrograde cycle, Mercury hosts the second Jupiter sextile Pluto April 15, the day before Mercury turns forward, Direct! Mercury will be in its 8 day Station, appearing still in the sky 4 days before and after its turn, steeping in the sextile, witnessing, observing, collecting data, selecting the good points of the lucky sextile to take along to use. In Aries, Mercury will be super alert to nuances that make a quick difference. Thinking skills will improve, new tools acquired, inspiration grows 10 fold!

It also sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 2 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them. See more

This will be increased in April as Mercury sequences with Mars aspects. Mars is the Aries planet! It’s hot action! Aries is fast and first, a sprinter and bike rider. Loves doing under its own steam. It helps at emergencies and births. People get started in a new life when Aries is around and there’s no going back! Relationships may be brief, quickly renewed and just as quickly left again. You better like ’em the way they are; they aren’t famous for change. They are just independent. Mercury is the thinker, so for some, this will be an exultant time of the mind! Doesn’t matter which way Mercury is going, forward or backward, it’s a flash! Each direction is enjoyably challenging, Aries is no coward, not ever! A new vantage point is delightful and intoxicating! Great to try new things and angles! It may be good to have a financial manager you enjoy to guide the enterprises through the narrows. One enterprise is not enough or boredom sets in. And that will never last long with most Aries! The manager has to be clever enough to talk with you rather than tell you what to do. Aries hot spots are the head, the eyes. Infections, fevers, cuts, punctures, bleeding. Most illnesses are crises, not chronic. If your Aries is overweight and lying about, they likely need appreciation, encouragement and inspiration! Going up or down the retrograde turns, they will soon be curious, then just get outta their way, LOL! The switch has been flipped!

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Mar 8 at 4 Aries 46. March 22 Mercury retrogrades at mid Aries, 16 Aries 54. April 15, Mercury turns forward, April 16 Jupiter sextiles Pluto the second time. The entire cycle finishes May 3. Aries is a Cardinal sign, gets things moving. Mercury will stand up to other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn – the signs of parents and mates. In Aries, fire sign, it pushes earth signs Taurus and Virgo. It has an in with Virgo, Virgo being  Mercury’s second sign. Might even stampede them though Virgo has seen his type before. Mercury will liven the cauldrons of water signs Scorpio and Pisces. It jumps up with other fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, though Leo may not take kindly to being rousted from his lionly nap. Mercury in Aries sparks with the air signs Gemini (Mercury’s first sign), and Aquarius! How high can we fly?! And they don’t stop talking! It would take years to cover what’s on their minds! Mercury in Aries thinks in action. He may take a group on walkabout! Several of these combinations may go a bit rowdy!

If the Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – Aries especially involves vehicles, bicycles, mechanical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned trips and ventures are likely. Though it is unArieslike, schedule to keep tabs on what becomes a new moving object in your life! Be sure your important papers are securely stowed, keep valuables and sentimentals with you. Keys, glasses and bike locks secure, clothing can’t blow away. No setting things on the top of your car. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done May 3!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Aries can be spontaneous and off on a new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

The Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron into Aries, and the April Mars aspects specially imprint this Retrograde cycle! Here’s the timetable:

Mar

8    Mercury Retrograde first phase starts
10  Mercury square Saturn 1st of 3
17  St Patrick’s New Moon, Mars into Capricorn
19  Mercury conjunct Venus one time sweet day
20  Sun in Aries, Spring Equinox! Four planets now in Aries!
22  Mercury Retrograde
31  Full Blue Moon

Apr

2    Mars conjunct Saturn
4    Mercury square Mars
5    Mercury square Saturn 2nd of 3
14  JUPITER SEXTILE PLUTO
15  Mercury Direct, turns forward on New Moon! Reset!
17  CHIRON INTO ARIES 
19  Sun into Taurus!
23  Mars sextile Jupiter in Scorpio
25  Mercury square Saturn 3rd of 3
26  Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn

May  3   Entire Mercury Retrograde cycle finishes!

The last retrograde, in Sagittarius, Mercury conjuncted Saturn three times. The only repetitive aspect Mercury in Aries forms this retrograde cycle is its square to Saturn three times. It’s as if it is putting on the brakes, and we know how fast these fire signs can go! Have your brakes checked to see they are working well. Check your thinking to see if you are keeping priorities, staying on track. Allow enough time for the usual retrograde delays, breakdowns. Get a little more rest because there could be more stress than usual. You may alternate hot and cold. Layers are good.

There are two Mars activation sequences in April. The two sequences are tied together because Mars conjuncts the two planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto.

  1. April 2 Mars conjuncts Saturn. It can be a tired time, a bit down, accidental, fraught with delays and overworked. Mars wants Saturn to try his new ideas! Saturn likes his routine, but is ultimately practical and knows some ideas will be more productive. He listens to this upstart because they are in the same sign and speak the same language. He sees Mars is being careful. Yes, implementing the new ideas will take a bit more time in the beginning, but Mars in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, is good at what he does, is faster than most and quick to see what needs to be done, does it on the spot! Breakthrough! April 4 and 5, Mercury squares first Mars then Saturn. Things could get a bit grumpy, depressed, but Mercury is the messenger and is in Mars’ own sign Aries! So they can talk and then, perhaps, even together, clear up any delays due to Saturn’s technicalities. What could have failed may come through with reasonable persistence, respect and adjustments in the beginning. More can come later.
  2. The big sequence starts as Mercury turns Direct April 15 at the New Moon! Double new beginnings! April 14 Jupiter sextiles Pluto followed by Mars aspects well after Mercury is on his way forward! Mercury is making final decisions and shifts, mature in the cycle! Mars sextiles Jupiter the 23rd, Mercury squares Saturn the 25th, Mars conjuncts Pluto the 26th! Mercury square Saturn ties to the April 2 Mars conjunct Saturn. The rules and regs still need consideration. The new ideas probably need a review. Mars sextile Jupiter, conjunct Pluto reiterates and keeps the lucky Jupiter sextile Pluto cooking! Philosophy is great, action takes it home! Mars reminds Jupiter what the project is, why it’s important to DO! Mars jumps seriously in Pluto’s cauldron reminding him of his financial commitment! Without the $, Jupiter can’t get or keep it rolling! It’s worth the effort and Mars is willing to work for it. LAST is Chiron into Aries, while the Sun is in Aries, April 17! Perfect!

Aries is always up on the latest, inspired and leads the crew to install those newfangled contraptions that make your work easier, increase the returns. They are great consultants off to their next installation!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!

First Full Moon in March, Worm Moon!
5 Planets in Pisces – Trine Jupiter!

First Full Moon in March, Worm Moon!
5 Planets in Pisces – Trine Jupiter!  

Thursday Mar 1 at 4:51 PM Pacific, 11 Virgo Pisces 23! 

Pisces Mermaid Boat Lantern Full Moon

The Moon may be in Virgo, but the weight is with Pisces! There are 5 planets in Pisces to fuel the Magic that Virgo writes about!! Astonishing imagination and revelation!
  • Sun and Neptune, the Pisces planet, pair up at 11 & 13 degrees opposite the Moon! Sun and Neptune can live in a fantasy world that is sometimes more real than what we all think is the way the world is! It can be confused, addictions, living in Maya as some spiritualists call it – the illusion of money and matter versus heart and Soul. Or it can be profound meditation, psychic insight, God is your Guide. The Sun puts Light in the places we fear or have misunderstood. We hear sound that moves the Universe; we travel the mystic portals of time and beauty.Moon in Virgo keeps a clear mind, analyzes, tends us through difficult moments with her common sense. She makes our life more easy by removing messes and organizing what’s left in smooth order and easy access when we need it. Less goods is less work, less that nags at our subconscious. Virgo kindly documents as we go so we can track our progress. Super gods and goddesses! Thank you.Sun and Neptune are inconjunct the Moon’s North Node at 14 Leo. Sun is Leo’s planet, so there is a camaraderie. The Moon’s Nodes are always moving in the retrograde (backward) direction, so they are all also heading toward each other! Inconjuncts are magical in that they invite a side trip of some kind. They can be a bit wacky, off center! They can distract, even take us on a journey we are glad we didn’t miss, and sometimes we go off and never return.Sun and Neptune offer a spiritual course, creative art, images and music, oceanic, in depth fathomless living, never predictable! Leo offers the center stage crown of Light, big hearted Love, the colors of creation, being true to yourself! What a combination! Mix ’em up!
  • The Sun sextiled Saturn the 25th, and the Moon trined Saturn only hours before at 10:10 AM. Moon in Virgo, being an earth sign, and these ties with Saturn, Capricorn’s earth planet, have stabilized and prioritized the Pisces dream. It can be built, the core destination imprinted in renderings, and artful magic added! The 4th will be a key day when the Sun conjuncts Neptune, then Mercury conjuncts Venus, the contract made, the blessing secured, the mission on its way! Mercury goes into Aries the 5th, Venus the 6th, and it’s time for action!
  • Mercury and Venus pair up at 22 & 23 degrees with Chiron just beyond at 27. Mercury and Venus trine Jupiter. Mercury and Venus in Pisces notice the divine attributes and put them into words and images that can take our breath away. We ‘see’ with extraordinary insight and compassion is awakened. Their trine with Jupiter in Scorpio takes it to a deeper level. We walk in the secrets of our own or another’s underworld whether that be darkness or the power within. We see the important standing we all have within each other’s relationships.
  • Jupiter in turn trines Chiron though not exact until quite later in the year Nov 1! It is preparing a fertile outlook. Chiron in Pisces is particularly interested in the healing of chronic wounds of the Soul and Spirit. Those wounds can be so deep, from many lifetimes ago, indwelling, hard to name they are so invisibly a part of us. They seem like unfathomable addictions sometimes.Jupiter in Scorpio seeks the deepest darkest truths that hurt us so, have kept us buried. Jupiter can rename them and give us the perspective to understand, to safely release them. We are in good company and become ready to take the next steps, to travel on with our eyes uplifted.

THREE IN THE BACKGROUND! These will be with us through September, then two are finished and one remains until November.

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Mars at 20 degrees Sagittarius is midpoint semi-sextile between them spurring them on! He takes Pluto’s powerful secrets and tells the story to Jupiter (in Pluto’s sign Scorpio), who lets it be known to the right parties so the good work may be fully funded. Through these links strong people are met, fulfilling partnerships made. Scorpio and Pluto want excellence of research about life and death. Make the project proposal.

2) Jupiter inconjunct Uranus is another in-the-background aspect. It won’t become exact until Nov 7, right after Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1. Uranus retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6, as if to meet Jupiter exactly at this 29 degree location Nov 7, just before Jupiter jumps into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Since Uranus is retrograde, they are both heading toward this aspect. It is virtually a glimpse as they both change signs! Uranus will remain in Aries, carrying the energy of this meeting until March 6, 2019. Jupiter will clearly immediately, have new things to do, but will be flavored by the encounter. Uranus in Aries is memorable! See more

  • The inconjunct occurs at 29 Scorpio/Aries. 29 is the last degree of a sign, considered the finality, the maturity, a critical passage point. The conclusion must be reached, there is sadness it is over, glad it is done, time to celebrate! If you miss it, the issue lingers in your consciousness, perhaps never able to be completed. On the other hand, perhaps it simply calls us to move on, take what we’ve got and check out further possibilities! Jupiter gets a boost from Uranus as it leaves Scorpio. Scorpio is called a fixed signs, more of a stabilizer. Uranus in Aries is no such thing! It is meant to create havoc and chaos, stir the pot to high momentum. Maybe this is just the charge Jupiter needs to thrust into his own sign, shake off the underworld shackles of Scorpio, loosen up and be ready for action. Scorpio is a powerful learning place of important things. Important to have impetus to teach them! Time to take the trip of a lifetime!
  • Uranus in Aries is not long on memory, but is quick on its feet! It will take the Jupiter in Scorpio values and immediately push the information forward! Uranus does have long vision for the planet and because of their extensive connections, will know perfectly where to place Jupiter’s pearls where they will do the most good. Mission accomplished!

3) Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! 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.

Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

Our New Moon has 4 planets in Pisces! Neptune is in Pisces, his own sign! Sun and Moon are conjunct Chiron square the Galactic Center.

The Sun trined Jupiter the 13th and Moon trined Jupiter the night before at 11:11 PM Pacific. The Moon carries the Sun’s trine forward. Both have been charged by Jupiter with information to share, long distance visions in time and place to carry forward, finesse in the dreamtime. They in turn conjunct Chiron and transfuse him with their insights. It’s a time to heal the Spirit of subtle wounds, to learn and teach healing methods. Business will do better following delicate changes, and relationships will be more empathic.

Mars was at the Galactic Center March 10 and 11. Sun and Moon are right in the square to the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius and Chiron is just passed but is still quite close. Mars is the activator, quick to respond, a champion! The GC is a profound place of Light. It’s a channel we can query, or be directed by. It has a magnitude of enlightenment, carries great meaning, has a collective perspective. Sun and Moon will add their glory to what Mars is now carrying. Mars takes 2 years to circle, so it won’t be another 2 years before the next infusion. Chiron has already checked in during 2016, but is still in the same sign and still quite close. Squares are challenging. Perhaps there are times we resist or need to grow into the information itself. Likely. Finding good ways to speak of it can be difficult. The same breakthroughs we require others require too. When we find it challenging, that is often the time it’s most needed. Steady on.

Neptune in Pisces holds the anchor being in his own sign. He takes 168 years to complete his cycle, and he’s been in Pisces this time since 2012, now about half way through. He’s experienced. Sensitivity is building. These are times to ask questions, hear others. Neptune is master of the Dreamtime, loves fantasy, magicians, makes music and art, is the ruler of the ocean! Ships, harbors, waves, water sports, world imports and exports often travel the seas. Mists, veils, soften our vision. Spiritual, vision quests take us to far places.

Mercury and Venus were in Pisces with the Full Moon. In our New Moon they are in Aries! Mercury just semi-sextiled Neptune, Venus is about to! We need some words to bring Neptune’s dreams conscious. We need a scribe with a sweet way to make the words attractive and beautiful, valuable. Mercury and Venus in Aries are in the sign of the next step! They want to take point, give an exciting inspiring rendition! They want to get people started! Venus gives her blessing. Neptunians are often behind the scenes and need a champion! Mercury and Venus are pros at sales, marketing and advertising! Get that blog rolling! It’s news!

The Moon’s North Node is inconjunct Neptune and trine Mercury and Venus! In Leo, it is ready to profess what’s in its heart, let us know more of who he is! Neptune reveals another layer of our being, Mercury and Venus are perfectly placed to tell this story! Leo lights it up! It’s a subtle drama, that seemed to start from nothing, yet well put, touches many of our hearts.

There are three important background aspects going on! Please see above to see all about them! They will be with us through September, then two are finished and one remains until November.

So how is this for a St Patrick’s Saturday night party Moon?! You’re on! Pisces knows how to have fun, and Venus with Mercury, aaand Uranus, aren’t going to miss a moment! Venus in Aries loves a rip roaring good time! Mercury chats about everything with every person that arrives! If there wasn’t a party, they will start one and it may move from place to place! Uranus in Aries is wildly funny, crazy happy with all his good friends! In the US, Mars is already in Capricorn, the POLICE! So he either watches over you as your friend, or if you get too rowdy, oops, you may find yourself in the slammer. He would be the choice for the designated driver!

If you aren’t a partier, have your own kind of fun. Candles are good, music to soothe your Soul. Solitude is a blessing. And you can feel virtuous, smile. Either way, enjoy!

Roll with the tides. I’ll meet you at the shore…

2018 Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Dog! Australian Shepard

Those blue eyes! Australian Shepard by Eileen Kumpf/Getty Images

In the US New Year’s Day started with the Full Wolf Supermoon! The Chinese New Year is the year of the Brown Earth Dog!

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is a Solar Eclipse Feb 15 at 1:05 PM PACIFIC at 27 Aquarius! In addition, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, making it like a triple eclipse event! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear. Feb 16, New Year day, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the Brown Earth Dog.

Previous Dog years were 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, now this one 2018, and next is 2030! The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Rooster, and before the Pig! When determining your year, remember, the first day of the New Year falls at the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so the date of the new year varies year to year. Dogs are akin to western astrology’s 7th sign Libra.

When I think of Earth Dogs in a literal sense, I think of low to the ground pups like Dachshunds and Basset Hounds, and dogs like Terriers that love to hunt animals that live in the ground. When I think of Libra, pretty well groomed social dogs come to mind, like Poodles, Papillons and King Charles Spaniels, maybe a purebred that’s show quality! Could be a fluffy pure cute, or a non-shedding sleek short hair. Super smart and courageous working dogs are certainly on the ground! Corgis, Australian Shepards, Queensland Healers, Collies! In the Spirit sense, dogs nowadays are considered part of our families, loyal protectors that would give their lives for us.

Human Dogs certainly live up to these admirable traits! They are perceived as very loyal, honest and faithful companions, loving and attentive, not argumentative and they dislike confrontations. Sweetly, Dogs are usually good at remembering anniversaries and other special relationship moments.

Just like a dog will love you no matter who you are, Chinese dogs are considered to be fair, unprejudiced and companionable. They are always alert and aware of things and people around them. Though some prefer to work alone or in small groups, the Libran Dog is adaptable enough to fit in anywhere. These are hard workers who are conscientious, responsible and reliable. They are good with finances and would rather save up than borrow. They live within their means, are frugal buyers, favor quality and real value over quantity. They usually acquire a comfortable lifestyle.

Dogs’ weakness is they tend to be private worriers, sometimes giving the impression they have a stubborn personality. Better to verbalize your concerns, get fresh insights with others. Bless their hearts, they are likely to worry more about others than themselves. They seem to sometimes try and take responsibility for or be too understanding of the actions of others. Denial or too much forgiving. Having a supportive partner will help these doggies to share their personal thoughts and anxieties so they don’t mount up.

Outdoors is good, boring is bad! Dogs need to breathe some great fresh air and get exercise, love meeting new people! They can be serious but know how to take time out  to refresh themselves. Share walking, driving, running, or just relaxing in the garden with your dog friends. As long as it is outside they are not usually fussy about what it involves doing.

Dogs are instinctual and intelligent. They will accept leadership from a true leader as long as it makes sense to their belief system. Dogs are not always leaders themselves but will be close to leaders, who can count on the Dog to save the day. But don’t forget the bite! Always cautious and alert, sometimes undecided, the Earth Dog will bite when he feels threatened or betrayed! You may lose his business.

Famous Dogs:  Fire Dog Trump – this was an ultimate Eastern insult: North Korea said Trump’s speech to UN was akin to ‘sound of a barking dog.’ Famous dogs: Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Bocelli, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, Uma Thurman, Bill Clinton, George Gershwin, Judy Garland, Steven Spielberg, Justin Bieber, David Bowie!

Famous Earth Dogs: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Billy Idol, Al Capone, Prince!

A heartfelt welcome and shout out to all the new little Brown Earth Dogs to be born this year!

Gong xi fa cai, my dear friends, and especially to all you Dogs! Woof!
