Cancers Feed the Tribe, Body and Soul…

Cancer Chef Anthony Bourdain dining with Prez Obama

Cancer born June 25, 1956. Let’s celebrate the life of renowned and much loved, inspiring Chef, Host, Author & Adventure-seeker Anthony Bourdain who is no longer with us on this Earth plane. CNN said of chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain: “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink, and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller.”

Formerly the chef at Les Halles in New York City, Bourdain broke into national fame with his book Kitchen Confidential. He landed on the Food Network with A Cook’s Tour, then gained a broader audience as star of Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. He moved to CNN in 2013, where Season 11 of his show premiered last month. Peabody Award judges honored Bourdain’s Parts Unknown in 2013 for “expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure.”

Cancers are strong on home, and Chef’s home was the whole world. In his own mothering way, he integrated across cultural, racial, and status divides. Chef was a champion active in social causes, particularly in highlighting the role of immigrant workers in restaurant kitchens. For years, he was vocal about how immigrants are the backbone of the industry but that their contributions are marginalized and ignored.

Bourdain was so true to himself. He dropped out of college in the early 1970s and transferred to The Culinary Institute of America. Cancers are often artists and photographers ~ well, he put you right there in the picture with his words that made you see and feel what he was telling you! “I wanted it all: the cuts and burns on hands and wrists, the ghoulish kitchen humor, the free food, the pilfered booze, the camaraderie that flourished within rigid order and nerve-shattering chaos,” he wrote. “I love the sheer weirdness of the kitchen life: the dreamers, the crackpots, the refugees, and the sociopaths with whom I continue to work; the ever-present smells of roasting bones, searing fish, and simmering liquids; the noise and clatter, the hiss and spray, the flames, the smoke, and the steam.”

Chef was open to the core, the good, the bad and the ugly. He lived big and broad. He kicked addictions to heroin and cocaine. He was twice married and divorced, and had a daughter, Ariane. Recently, he had shared photos together with his girlfriend, actress and filmmaker Asia Argento. Asia said “He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated.”

Cancers take you under their wing like an old broody hen, make us feel safe. “Journalists drop into a situation, ask a question, and people sort of tighten up,” Bourdain said. “Whereas if you sit down with people and just say, ‘Hey what makes you happy? What do you like to eat?’ They’ll tell you extraordinary things, many of which have nothing to do with food.”

Obama said: “Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer. This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him.”

See Tony’s astrology chart. With Mercury and Venus in Gemini he had an additional gift with words. In Leo, Jupiter in close conjunction with Pluto gave him bold intensity that left no stone unturned, triggered revelation. They made him a teacher with a big heart, a consummate performer. Sadly, those two in T Square with Saturn in Scorpio, and with his Mars in Pisces, led to his demise at his own hands. His birthtime is unknown ~ the Moon was either Capricorn or Aquarius, and his Ascendant is unknown. Whatever his ascendant is, it made him 6′ 4″ tall, and taller yet in Spirit. RIP dear Soul.

Cancer 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Mars July 2018 compared 2020 NASA

Mars to Shine Brighter This Summer Than It Has in 15 Years

  • Over the course of the next several weeks, the distance between the Earth and the Red Planet will shrink.
  • It will shift from the predawn sky to the night sky
  • Mars will be brighter than Jupiter July 7 to September 7, brightest the morning of July 31, brighter than Jupiter by some 1.8 times!
  • The next time Mars comes as close as it will this summer won’t occur again until Sept. 15, 2035.
Amazingly, for a period of about two months, Mars will supplant Jupiter as the fourth brightest celestial body, after the sun, moon and Venus. Mars’ reign as the fourth-brightest celestial body (or third brightest in the nighttime sky, after the moon and Venus) will last from about July 7 to September 7.

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness
In N. Hemisphere, noontime shadows are shortest at this solstice
Longest day for N. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunset
Shortest day for S. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunrise
The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

Cancer 2018  Timeline!

June
21 Happy Summer Solstice! Happy Cancer!
26 Mars Retrograde
27 Full Strawberry Moon Capricorn/Cancer

July
7  Mercury Retrograde cycle starts
12 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse!
16 Chiron/Uranus semisextile
22 Happy Leo!
25 Mercury in Leo starts double Retrograde

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Gemini’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 shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and just shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala was next. The next outer planet sign change Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as laying your bricks in a straight line.

Cancer 2018 hosts no major outer planet aspects, but nurtures us in the aftermath of various shifts and schisms, nurtures us to step into our future selves.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the Timeline above please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrogrades back to back! Literally months of retrograde!

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!

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!

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

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2018 – July 2019!

Cancer Toddlers playing late day sunny road

Remember when you were little? Who did you want to be and where did you go? Cancer’s journey begins in the womb, the Mother place that means so much to them. Intuitive as they are, they pick up a lot even then. Sometimes they ‘stay home,’ live their parents’ expectations. Other times they are the leaders over the divides of decades and cultural expectations, and against the odds ‘take their parents with them.’ Whether you are the Little Prince (author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry a Cancer), Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll, Moon conjunct the ASC Sagittarius) or Cinderella (Charles Perrault birthtime unknown), maybe it’s your time to take the lead, kindly, in a good way.

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 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Cancer, Moon, and Pluto, Scorpio, have resonance as water signs and planets. Capricorn opposite Cancer is something else. One, they are the traditional axis of Father/Mother, child/parent, feminine/masculine, home/career, emotions/science. Both are traditional. Cancer loves genealogy, family culture, antiques. Capricorn rules patriarchal authorities, elders and archaeology, bones and homes of the past. Their ultimate goal together is for their children to flourish and carry on the best the family has to offer. Capricorn can seem harsh to Cancers, who ruled by the 27 day lunar cycle, the Moon, have unpredictable emotions. They need a little wiggle room, and Cappies like law and order, no fooling around or wasting time on invisible things! There are times of strain unless Capricorn sees the value of intuition, comforts Cancer through certain times, and acknowledges all things are not 100% scientific!

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 degreeswill be activated with this pure energy! Cancer may not be as spiritually intent as Neptune/Pisces, but she does know family comes first! That’s her spiritual goal! There’s little time for addictions, zero time for being the martyr when your kids need you. Yet she shares that uncanny intuition, and values the insights her dreams give her. She has lunar cycles, while Neptune/Pisces have tidal cycles. Cancer and Neptune understand things come and go, ebb and wane, return and leave, live and die. Children grow up, the Soul quests the Universe. Some things are just bigger than others, from a grain of tidal sand to the new and full Moons of Cancer that correlate with the tides of Neptune. They are as one. Cancer cherishes time to sit quietly. It’s good to know there are oceanic options always there should she decide to leave home.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered 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!

Cancer is pushed off center by Aries, and sudden changes that come by both Uranus and Aries! If you want to keep on with what your Mother did, family traditions, you may be chagrined or if you have a few rebel bones too, delighted to find new ways to carry on! Uranus and Aries generally don’t have time to coddle or cater to your feelings, you might have to give a mighty yell to get their attention, in fact! At times their doings are more important in the long term, and you come to see that and resent them less. But you can feel abandoned and neglected. You can help them learn better how to deal with the average citizen who doesn’t have as mighty a project out there on the fringes. You might like what they are doing, but not how they are doing it when dealing with humans, children. If you are a supporter, they are lucky to have you. Compared to odd/exotic Uranians, an ‘ordinary’ Cancer can take that project to the town hall meeting and get it launched!

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 now, 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! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Cancer is still leery of Uranus, but in Taurus as least it is more calm. Taurus can be patient, but perhaps not so patient about environmentalism and sustainability. They want things to last. And so do Cancers who by nature need security. Food comes from the land, and Cancers make meals for their family. They want good quality, organic if possible, food. Taurus is our bodies, and Cancer knows how important right balance of nutrients is and to keep steady with exercise. More of us may find ourselves with furry pets. Research says our pets help us live longer and that goes well with Cancer who wants to live long and well to take care of their loved ones. Uranus in Taurus interventions are more likely to be well received.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries, close to the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac 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! Cancer is good with the fellow nurturer Chiron and the Spirit healer Pisces, body and Soul. Cancer knows there is more than what we see with our eyes. Pisces has its dreams and visions, Cancer has an array of feeler emotions that reach out and see their own way. Cancer is happy with Chiron’s remedies and understanding, tenderness with children and animals, ones that have Soul sicknesses. Knowing someone who ‘knows’ is there makes Cancer feel safer, so they are less crabby. And Cancer loves learning! Since security is on Cancer’s list, she likes Chiron’s business ideas too! Might even open her own business!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Cancer knows how things can be swept under the carpet. Cancer can tend to get overweight and turn into a homebody in denial. But the world continues on around us. We are needed as teachers, and Cancers are relentless scholars! Aries wants us to be the leader, on the cutting edge. They need the historic facts to back their play. Be ready to consult, they may need you at any moment! Chiron in Aries can get grumpy when they know something vital needs timely attention. Dr Chiron would certainly be there for you if your child was sick!

x
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 July 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 stands opposite Cancer. Saturn/Capricorn can feel like a ton of bricks when Cancer is feeling sensitive. Or when Cancer is feeling sensitive, good old Saturn is their rock and we are so grateful they keep us feeling safe and steady. Every once in a while we just need to be a little lunar crazy and no amount of consoling is wanted! There are times our very instability is our ticket to intuitions, premonitions, fluid feelings that get us right where we need to be with the very right answer! Not logical but it works. Capricorn can learn that is a special kind of order they can use themselves at times. Lock down isn’t always the answer. Cancers do at times need to grow up. They can be like little adult children with that sweet face and childlike voice. You don’t know whether to believe them or not. Capricorn is the wizened child, either by face or demeanor. Take a cue from them. Take advantage of their example. Slim Cappies are noted for self-discipline and not being self-indulgent. Cancer’s addiction is food. Timing and situational events can be our undoing. Capricorn turns his energy to avoiding time wasting dangerous environments, instead, puts his attention on work, building. Balance is good.
x
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 the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Cancer being the hearth bunny may see this need for silence, recovery from the intensity he has witnessed, and she may simply give him a place to rest. Or, wanting to learn, she pesters him with many questions until he says ‘Enough!’ They laugh and she leaves him alone 5 mins. She learns more about the intimacies of the world – cultural differences that people live and die for, financial gain and ruin, hate, crime and saviors. Takers and donors. Living in misery or swaddled in wealth. She changes as she listens. She’s more grateful, more determined to stand for the good things she believes in, to be more aware of what’s behind the scenes and respond more appropriately. It’s not as potent to hear it on the news and turn the news off. Your friend, who has appeared on your doorstep brings this personally, experienced it, and you can’t turn him off.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius! Cancer is the first water sign, Mother’s Milk. While Sag goes racing off around the world, Cancer has the hearth fire burning right at home. Always the scholar, she is intrigued by Sag stories, and travels for free with no danger as his stories are so picturesque she can see the people and places! She knows better than to trust he will always be there for her, but he gives her the confidence of the world because he goes and comes back, generally unscathed. When he’s here, she is cheered! She in turn has more hopes for her own doings, including those uncommon recipes! Her senses are broadened, her insights more far reaching. Sag is an exciting rogue and it’s catching! The weekend trips, vacations are a little longer now, intriguing places visited. She has stories of her own to tell and the pictures to prove it! Sag enjoys the visit with this Earth Mother. He finds he is comforted by her attentions and feels bold again, good food and all, snacks packed, and off he goes!

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

Cancer Family Reunion

We’ve clearly got some family resemblances at this reunion! Possible twins, Grandma and Grandpa look happy, there’s the little boy doing what little boys do! Maybe you have never had such a reunion, yours was just like this one, down home. Or maybe you all rented a hall or had dinner at a fine restaurant dressed to kill. Our families are so different, large, small. We are not perfect and we have our differences with each other, but there is love.

Bless all you Cancer sweeties! We adore you!

Gemini, It’s in Your Hands…

Gemini Prana Breath of Life Hand Touch

Prana is the life force, our breath. We breathe as we speak; that’s the sound of our Soul.

Sharing information is perhaps the most elemental, the daily Word that goes around the village.

Gemini is the sign of the mind, most specifically communications. There are many facets to be called upon.

Commanding, in Leadership or as Guardian. Lead what you do well. We all have personal Grace, a specialty or two that is part of why we are here. If your commands are true, you will be trusted and looked to for Guidance. Thank you. When necessary, throw your voice to deflect or ward off inappropriate energy. Call on your Higher Self. Your strength will be amazing.

Requesting We each can’t do everything. We Give to one another because it makes simple sense. Ask for what you need and honor the requests of others. If you can’t help, let others know what this person needs. It takes a village.

Praise. How we honor one another makes a difference. Being appreciated, acknowledged for the vital part we play keeps us tuned up and ready for the next venture. Sometimes we work hard, with no thought other than being who we are, yet that unique place we hold is essential to the total well being, the wholeness of All. We become One.

Kindness is another form of leadership. We make mistakes as we grow, get out of balance and ill at times. We have challenges in families, relationships and with our finances. A kind suggestion at the right time, an assurance that we will keep learning and find our way, may be just what we needed to hear. It confirms our worthiness. Someone took a few moments to notice. It’s the process that counts. We may land in a better place than where we ever thought we were going to be!

Singing! Hallelujah! Celebrate! Your gain is our gain, is encouragement for all. Invite us with your song! Sing it at night, at sunrise on the mountain, whistle while you ride your bike.

Chants, OM Chants can be about anything, for any purpose. As a Bumblebee vibrates its body at the C note, different tones, minors, majors, have cellular to spiritual effect. OM tunes you to the power of the Creator. Start your Gatherings, Circles with sounds of your choice – for yourselves, your intention.

Vocal Toning, Chakras Let the sounds of the voices wash over you, cleanse you, permeate you, go through you from Crown to Toes, and back up, out the Crown into the ethers of the Universe. You never left, but you have been changed by the voyage. If you are at the gym, let out some good grunts and groans as you open those Chakras physically as well! So satisfying! Yoga works too…

Soothing lullabies. To babies, for people about to leave their bodies, to yourself when you go to sleep. Breathe to gentle music too. Hum a little tune of your very own while you concentrate and get this little thing and that little thing done. Good job.

First, always Clear your Channels. Breathe deep, release, let go of old debris that dulls your energy, muddles your mind, blocks your way. Be sure your breath and intent are clear, pure. Up the amps by asking that you are cleared of long held energy you didn’t realize you are still carrying. It has its own weight, wastes your energy as you carry it day after day, and still attracts other such energy. No more.

Breathe deep, breathe out. Be still and open. Let the Infusion of the highest energy be with you. With intent share it out, a mighty blanket of wisdom, a cloud of Light. Listen to your breath. Breathe as Ra would breathe. Breathe as your hero or Savior would breathe. Breathe as the Buddha by the road would breathe. Breathe as Gaia breathes.

You hold the precious Breath of Life in you, your part in our world today. Think as you think, speak as you feel.

You can amplify your Breath, your Word, with your hands. Laying on of hands is an ancient practice. We all can do it. We all have Gemini, and Mercury, the planet of the Twins, at special places in our astrology charts. Some people ‘hear’ better when they are touched, grounded. Always, and only, do laying on of hands with entire respect. You are a Channel. It can be a massage, a hand on the shoulder, a hug, a handshake transmission.

Yes, there is duality. Twins are the remarkable symbol of it. Duality is a Gemini job and talent. We breathe in, we breathe out. We have two hands, Geminis often ambidextrous. Right brain, left brain. Harmonize them like an Artist, the Psychic, a Healer! Be well conscious of them; use this additional talent with direct attention and intention. Blessed be.

Gratitude. Give thanks for all that ever was, is and will be. When we say Namaste, we acknowledge the unknowable Divinity in every being. We are thankful for being in each other’s company. We don’t always know the import of the life they lead, the place it holds for all of us. We do not live for ourselves alone. There are many observers. We may not understand it in that moment, sometimes things seem bad, very bad, but in time we will see the value of even that experience too. What we are grateful for grows in a good way. Let the flower bloom. Gratitude is good fertilizer. Say your gratitude out loud.

Gemini is an incredible Sign. They have a huge capacity for an astonishing array of information. They can pluck data seemingly out of mid air, but when they received it they correlated it quickly, archived it automatically, and can give it back to you enhanced when needed! They hold informations from sources differing in points of view and can tell you the important points, plus, explain the style of thinking it came from, age factors, cultural backgrounds, along with the source’s financial standing! At times they are considered chatterboxes – there has to be some outlet, the dam has to spill! Old is let out so new can be let in. What they really have is a huge memory capacity that brims and flows with LIFE! Of course they are excited! They live on the collective edge every remarkable moment!

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and just shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! The next outer planet sign change Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as laying your bricks in a straight line.

Gemini 2018 hosts the second Jupiter Trine Neptune. There is much to talk about as we aim toward the possible blessings this will bring. We need to gather the people, tell them all about it, the important parts each will play, and line up the steps, respond in a timely fashion as it all unfolds!

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the complete timetableJuly 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus is retrograde, then Mercury retrogrades the very day Venus turns forward Nov 16! They make back to back retrogrades! The Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic is during the Venus retrograde.

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 Aspect: 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 Gemini 2018 – June 2019!

Gemini Pansy Flowers! Full Face to Life!

Put a smile on it! Who knows who you will meet along the way?

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 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Gemini is properly flitty. They don’t mind responsibility that suits their spirit. But don’t tell them something you don’t want to get around. It doesn’t mean they can’t keep secrets, but when they get in the buzz of things, it may come out in the natural flow of the connection. Geminis may find underworld specialist Pluto a little dark and skulky, when Gemini is definitely out and about, sunshine preferred. Rather than therapist, Gemini is an info carrier and spreader that perks your interest! Capricorn wants to tell them what to do, put a timeline on it and standards of performance to measure your worth. Well, Gemini is an air sign and may feel caged by those attempts. They need freedom to spontaneously flow with where the juice is! Yet, a few guidelines can be helpful. They do listen, and use what you say to their advantage when it fits! Just be sure your expectations of them are realistic. Hire them for the right job.

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. Scintillating magical Gemini charms them with an array of current threads of information and insights that keeps Neptune from settling into a funk. Too much of that funk dampens Gemini’s spirits. Gemini will wilt and have to leave. But Neptune is also a dreamer visionary! Gemini will be excited to share the vision and carry word of it far and wide, person by person, who in turn will tell the tale!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 5 Taurus! Uranus entered 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!

Gemini can’t wait to share all this exciting news! Changes are being made right and left, Gemini dancing to the music, mimicking and miming when words are not enough or languages are different! The laying on of hands has potency like never before. The breath of Life is fully charged! Gemini’s vantage point is raised to the highest level, the words more meaningful than ever thought they could be. What an honor to carry these messages.

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 now, 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! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Gemini is both charged and soothed. Uranus is electric; Taurus slows down so things are fully absorbed and understood. Gemini likes fast but is still intrigued, so part of what he thinks about now is the magic of this staying process, becoming one with the thought. Taurus calls for an application. Gemini may need to adjust to figuring out exactly what can be done with these particular new ideas. That then becomes the greater reason for sharing. Pulling together like the great oxen of ancient times is an incredible experience! Twins know that deep in their Souls. We really are One.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for awhile later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac 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! Gemini, the sign of the breath, is not so easy with those life threatening water signs. Yet water is cleansing and any superfluous mental debris can be washed away to keep your Spirit clean. Your breathing channels may be cleared and your words flow more easily. Pisces lends a visionary insight that knocks you right off your seat! Chiron may ordain you as a teacher. How to talk with the Angels!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Gemini will be giddy at times! How to keep up with this fiery force! How to let all those people know about the new healing techniques, get all the details on the newsworthy significant relationships as they come and go?! Initiation connections are precious and sacred. We learn more about how to speak and when to listen. Being inspiring is a spiritual technique. We need to lead people out of hiding or slumber, to realize what can be done and that they can do it! Chiron leads the way and Gemini has notepad and internet handy. Blogs and social media are flying! Standby for breaking news! “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” — Malala Yousafzai.

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 wants to groom Gemini for maximum effect! He sees the value of Gemini’s connections, vast information banks, hands on work, ability to advertise what they love, and super sales ability! Crackerjack! But it is important not to ‘capture’ them. They lose their loose and when it isn’t fun and free, to a degree, they lose their light and wither. Give your Gemini plenty of room. That’s how they stay quick and creative! But if Gemini is down for other reasons, it may be strong old Saturn that scoops you up to help you and get you back on your feet. If you made a mistake, they can help remedy the error. Sometimes a routine is reassuring and your breath gets back on an even keel. God bless. They can help you stay on course and put your words where they count the most! Award winning excellence, teamwork exemplified.   

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, the planet of Sagittarius, the sign opposite Gemini. Jupiter can gather Gemini’s information, see it’s collective bigger meaning, the direction it points. Gemini doesn’t always realize the purpose of his gathering he is so intrigued by the singular importance of each treasure. He’s delighted when Jupiter makes it more and the reach of it all is greater, the perspective shown. Jupiter in Scorpio delves deep into the Great Mystery of life and death and teaches the sacred matters the raise us up, the Kundalini, how the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Gemini is the Breath, the Word of Light. It is the sign of the planet nearest the Sun. Gemini understands how close to life we really live. They may nervously chatter at times, but even that represents the hum of Life. Gemini may not be personally delighted to look face to face into the Cauldron, but also realizes the secrets of power held there. Revelation is a mighty tool, and Gemini is there to tell the story in bite size pieces that people feel safe to take in.

Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Gemini is the opposite sign. Fire and Air! Air feeds fire. Jupiter is BIG here, the planet of abundance, luck. Truth, integrity, faith. Travel, teaching, playfulness. So many good things to share with Gemini! An invitation par excellence! But too much can interfere with Gemini’s more local and personal methods. The Twin is the Twin. They mirror others, a we-are-one special kind of trust. But, of course, knowing we are part of a greater whole gives us a frame of reference that makes us specially selective with information sources. Too much data fever, and we forget to just stop and have some fun! Fun lover Jupiter may lead us astray and delay us, but we needed that! Visiting a different ‘hood opens up our jaded senses, interrupts our habitual way of seeing and judging! Gemini plays tennis, a good volley is exhilarating! Sagittarius gets you up on the Horse, hikes you up the mountain so you can see further and your ‘hood expands instantly! Have fun!

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

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!

Aries, Bright Blessings

Aries Bicycle Transit System Hardwicke

Toronto Architect Chris Hardwicke wants to do something about it! In 2006 he proposed “a high speed, all season, pollution free, ultra-quiet transit system that makes people healthier. Using an infrastructure of elevated cycle tracks, velo-city creates a network across the City.” It saves transportation costs. No flood, no mud! No ice! Safety from cars. Details! Current comparisons

Lead the way, Aries! We are happy to follow! If it’s new, let’s do it! Take a quick breath, a happy shout, and off we go! Alone or together! To work or for pleasure!

No sitting around; if you think it, do it! Aries are often lean and strong. They eat less and are more active, or eat more and are even more active! Envy.

Aries are quick to create solutions, especially if they are mechanical. They easily fix their own bikes on the road. They are the first to help and the first there! Because they are first, they learn a lot about how to be there in any and all conditions. They are swift to assess, adjust quickly as things change. Emergencies are their specialty whether in the boardroom or on the road.

They are downright brilliant and inspirational! Your only spiritual duty is to keep up or let them go! They need to be physical. Independent. That all can be tough on relationships. There needs to be a ton of respect that goes both ways. Better to have that 6 month engagement than the impetuous marriage that imprisons one or both of you. Yes they are impressive, but that doesn’t mean you can have one. But if you can, what a ride! They will get you on your feet in no time!

Sometimes they can get there faster on their bike than you can drive there! In this world today, sustainability is essential. Less pollution. Lower costs – no auto insurance, gas costs, expensive auto maintenance. Lower cost of living for greater numbers of elders. Much better health for active people with less health costs, more productive time. Get clean air up your nose, oxygenate your brain, get your blood moving! Or gear up on that stationary bike at home! There are so many kinds of bikes these days! Lightweight, skinny tires/fat tires, shopping bikes with carrying devices for groceries, kids, grandkids! Fold-up space savers to take traveling, treadles, tricycles for elders, electric! Many cities now have networks of safe bike lanes, bike stations with showers and storage for commuters with repair services available. Ride your bike!

Financially, Aries may be here and gone, a crack consultant! They come in with fresh eyes and because they get around and are experienced, they have solutions that work, adjusted perfectly to your needs, and can be implemented quickly, often for low cost. They may instantly see the value of startups and get in on the ground floor. Innovative businesses catch their eye; they may be starting one themselves! If you are following their lead but are more conservative, put in a trial amount to see how it goes. If it’s on, add more! Some Aries like heat and call the shots as fine chefs – baking, amazing meals, truly one of a kind. Or you might see them delivering freight or compost on their special freight bike, or racing at top speed as a city bicycle messenger or taking people on astonishing bike tours all over the world! Awesome!

Yes, I’ve said a lot about bikes here. Just take this healthy template and pop yourself or your dear Aries into it and change the scenario a bit. Main things are being energetic and innovative! Being the leader! Using your intelligence quickly!

Prevention and protests may show the courage an Aries brings to bear. They see the need to keep some things from happening, or assure the progress of others. They are no strangers to the front line. They are clever and innovative with slogans and posters.

Now if we do talk about health matters when things go south, I recommend wearing safe clothing and a helmet! Bumping your head is an Aries matter. Don’t take chances with your Aries kids! Yes, you have to wear a helmet. I love you. Headaches do happen, high fevers can come quickly. Blood may be involved, cuts, road rash, scrapes. Carry bandages. Safety glasses for fiery or dangerous work like soldering fine jewelry. Treat your eyes well when outdoors, maybe good shades. Avoid stimulants, hot spicy foods and alcohol. You already have high energy and at times a temper. Get rest, eat more slowly. Carry that water bottle and stay hydrated!

The worst malaise is if they lose their Spirit. That’s sad to see. Give them some time, get them out when you can. Take them places where things that might inspire them are happening. They will usually be back pretty quickly. Could be time for a new bike or off road vehicle. You see, they are generally not people who go chronic. It’s quick, fierce, and over, back on their feet. Good to know that few Aries are into addictions. Who has time?

Aries can be extraordinarily romantic, and sometimes it’s quick! Exciting to say the least! You may be swept off your feet by your hero/heroine! It is so worth the adventure!

Outer Planet Transits with Aries 2018 – April 2019!

Aries Road Trip National Parks Utah Spectacular Rt 12

What is more better than a spring road trip to start your new year?! Take Utah Route 12 winding between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon national parks. The 124-mile strip has funky small towns, steep sandstone canyons and bluffs of purple sage. Tackle the narrow cliff-hanging ridgeline road called The Hogback. Stop at Hell’s Backbone Grill, which has its own organic farm!

We are now, since Nov 11, on our way to the fourth aspect of a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018! Jupiter sextile Pluto has a strong focus since they are traveling closely together now through April!

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Aries’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 and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifts 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. 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!

Things are HOT this Aries mid April as Chiron makes the first sign change, into ARIES!  Jupiter sextiles Pluto April 14. The next day Mercury in ARIES turns forward from retrograde, the New Moon is in ARIES the same day! Chiron makes its switch April 17! Not only is it hot, but it is an intense closely spaced sequence! Put on your dancing shoes! Let’s roll! And this is only the beginning! Apropos for Aries!

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!

Aries is generally no whiner. They may complain when they are slowed down or something gets in their way. But they can quickly sidestep an dodge. But Pluto in Capricorn may entirely anticipate that. Aries and Capricorn don’t always get along smoothly. The project has to be more important than their egos. Aries and Pluto can be at odds. Aries generally does not sneak around and Pluto is the best at it. However, if you want to catch ’em coming and going, this pair can do it! Aries is the baby, the initiate, a younger with the freshest Spirit. Fuddy duddy elder behavior dampens their innovative adventures. And Cappies want to get the job done on time, mostly by the book. Ok. Ok. If Capricorn’s mentoring can help Aries get that adventure going smoothly and successfully, Aries is grateful. Give your Aries plenty of praise! After all, you couldn’t get those new things added to your repertoire and done without them! Together they can bring it home, well done, in jig time!

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 17 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. If anyone can call them back, here comes Aries, with infectious Light, a keen spirited way, undaunted. Up on your feet, try this, let’s go here, and has one idea after another worth pursuing. If nothing else, it’s entertaining! But next thing you know you are happy to go with them. Natural leaders! What you dream, they find a way to DO! Neptune/Pisces can dampen things, and that’s not always bad. Too fiery and people feel blasted or burned and back away, of course. Neptune is so sensitive, use them like a canary in the coal mine. Adjust your volume to a more gentle level. If Neptune can step up with you, you can step down a bit. More syncopatic.

Uranus covers 26 Aries to 2 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 a 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!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Air sign Aquarius may find Taurus earth a little heavy. The Bull is big and on the ground. Earth as a medium is perhaps more a collector of goods than Aquarius flying lightly over the land. Earth is dense compared to air. It’s a slowdown, a filter. But soil organisms need oxygen to function. AQ is about as complex as it gets, multileveled. Taurus will call for usefulness in daily living. Mother Earth will need her champions, for land, water, the trees that breathe for us, and rare exotic animals. AQ can do the job, plying the computer, organizing banking and funds, gathering groups of groups for the greater good. Temps may lower a bit, but be earthquake prepared. Pick safe places to live and do business.

Aries is fascinated by these shifts. A more independent lifestyle may be in the offing. Farmers, foodies, have always been independent. More new ways will be found on how to feed people. Protecting sacred Earth places and her resources will call Aries to stand for her. Aries will be letting people know more about living in harmony with earth changes, and how to place structures, build sustainably will be a perfect challenge. Young people today will see the possibilities. Elders will be swept along and be glad for it!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 28 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries initiates. Chiron enters 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 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! Aries can be impatient with the Chiron concerns, Pisces fears or sensitivities. Or inspired with the healer’s visions and ready to fight for them! Aries may call upon the intuitive insights, be guided by them. Aries may realize there is value in observation and contemplation, but Aries quick action in the moment is what we count on!

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will be Aries’ turn to be happy there is a Dr in the house! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with 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! The Doctor is coming and Aries is right beside him or leading the way! They are in instant harmony. If Aries needs healing, they will get right too it and Aries will be happily on his way. Innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. 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 now through April 2019. 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 April 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 challenges and is challenged by fiery Aries! But then Aries loves a challenge, though this one is more than five minutes! Saturn is the old guard, the elders, the ones in authority. Aries, however, just keeps coming back, not especially afraid of seemingly invincible powers, not taking ‘No’ for an answer! Saturn does have some time tested working points that Aries comes to appreciate and respect. If Saturn’s goals are ones Aries can get behind, Aries will lead the way, clear the path, make connections to bring it through. If Saturn controls too much, a younger Aries’ spirit may be crushed. There are limits. Guidance, to let them do as they need to be themselves, to do it well, to support rather than block, has sweet results. And Aries too needs to learn working limits. Pushing the right amount, in the right places, at the right time pays off, and Saturn is the Master!

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 friendly to fire sign Aries. Aries is upfront; Scorpio usually works more behind the scenes unless they in their boardroom! Aries can be their point man, one they can count on for a quick rescue, or the one they silently groan about when they see, that battles them every inch of the way. Aries may think of Jupiter in Scorpio as the big shadow that could steal their life, or know that teaching and healing are available where you might have least expected it. If Jupiter hits a mean streak in Scorpio, it might be wise to avoid them, stand back, wait for change to come from another direction. Sometimes you just can’t do it all yourself. If your causes are the same, see how you can fit in to help. Jupiter sees the benefit of many fronts and resources. An innocent Aries may be shocked and inspired at the same time when they see how things work behind the scenes. It’s a bigger world than we thought! Their toolbox is expanded.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, and Aries can have a great time! They can travel together, Jupiter taking Aries further afield! Jupiter may take the train, Aries brings their bikes to use at the destinations! Spontaneous play and Aries may lead the way! Aries is into prowess while Jupiter figures out what things mean, where they fit in the world, enriching Aries’ point of view, raising their standards. They may travel in behalf of a philosophy they mutually support, or to a remote temple. Jupiter loves to teach and Aries does by showing how it’s done! Each are generally quite healthy. Any dangers and Jupiter’s luck comes into play while Aries dashes safely out of the way. Relationships come and go like the flash fire signs have! Sagittarius wants to be free to go, and Aries loves their independence. Love these handsome and beautiful people while you can. You will be inspired and find more time to frolic! Oh, yes.

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.

Capricorn 2018 New Year Full Wolf SuperMoon

Wolf Dog at SPIRIT RHYTHM & BONE!

How FIRST can you get?!

Happy New Year! First Full Moon, Wolf Moon, of January and 2018! And it is the closest – and thereby the largest Supermoon of 2018! This Full Moon is the second in a series of three successive full moon SuperMoons occurring on December 3, 2017, January 2 Capricorn/Cancer and Jan 31 Aquarius/Leo, 2018.

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, Neptune is in Pisces his own sign, and with Saturn newly in his own sign Capricorn, we have THREE planets in their own signs on New Year Day! Two of those are outer planets that hold long term meaning. They give us time to absorb, try out the many facets of their expertise in the sign they are in. Cancer is home, family, especially women and children, and our feelings, support for our wellbeing, cycles in our lives. Neptune is the Spiritual Master, maker of music, takes us to sea, heightens our senses. Saturn is the TaskMaster, dedicated to his work, gives financial support, rules Moon’s opposite sign. Traditionally Moon and Saturn, shelter and career, Mother and Father, are united in the cause to make a good way for the children.

The Full Moon lets us into 2018 gently with her exact aspects with Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Moon trines Neptune, each intuitive, each supportive in their own way. Moon sees motion, cycles and rhythms. Generally she operates current time, makes sure we are fed and comforted, sleep well and helps us with daily family interactions. Neptune is more concerned with the greater good of all beings, our Soul, life’s meaning, is an observer of trends and our place in them. Moon serves more locally. Neptune would have us sacrifice and serve globally. They both love art and their sensitivities blend the color beams and meanings until they become one. The strong citizens Cancer grows become citizens that lead our communities.

Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune. Capricorn is the living example of responsibility, Light in action, Love accomplished. Sun Lights the way and cheers our hearts, gives the strength to follow Neptune’s dreams. Capricorns collect the working materials to build what was invisible into a work place that inspires us to make dreams come true. Capricorns are dedicated believers when they ‘see’ the way that makes ultimate good sense. They know how to bring teams to the table, aligning all their talents so perfectly. It’s just a matter of time. Sun carries Neptune’s energy forward, Venus is nearing, so you can bet Neptune’s dream will be full of grace and brings irresistible beauty. Venus will conjunct Sun Jan 8, and Venus and Sun conjunct Pluto Jan 9! There will be a blessed culmination, a grateful ending, the deep wellsprings of a new beginning, Light in places that used to be dark!

Beautiful Grand Trine/Kite in Earth and Water signs! Moon leads the formation, pushing off beyond her usual territory. She is strong in her own sign, spurred by Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio, guided by Neptune in Pisces, also in his own sign! Water signs heal and help. Moon loves her children and ‘knows’ when there is trouble. Scorpio reads his partner and the deep hidden things that need healing in all of us, impurities we carry that impinge on all others that come in contact with us, helps us safely off load and detox. We see more clearly. Pisces helps us tune in to the greater banks of spiritual wisdom, to merge and develop compassion, raise our frequency to a more refined level, global consciousness.

On the daily basis, securing safe quarters, connecting with good schools is important to Cancers. Scorpios secure the funds we need and do tremendous healing that frees us to act on our dreams. Pisces throws mysteries our way to whet our thirst for exploration beyond the average expectations. Of course there is more! We dance at concerts, go to the art museums, maybe church on Sunday, meditate and do yoga. People keep doing fantastic things! Fascinating things seep into us and we change, sometimes without even realizing.

Now, I did say Moon has the lead. But there is a lot of weight on the other side with a four planet stellium in Capricorn, Saturn in power fresh in his own sign! The weight of the whole chart is on that side! Perhaps it’s the whole group leading the way! Capricorn can be like a dozer, pushing through stubborn obstacles! Saturn knows when people are fearful, stuck in their ways, because at one time or another they have been there themselves. They know just how to get them motivated. Respect first by inviting not ordering, dangling carrots next, rewards and payoffs that make a difference. And it doesn’t have to be money! In one spiritual system, Capricorn is the sign of Ceremonial Magic. It is a sacred ritual to care for people this way. Cancer hugs, feeds, cleans up some of the mess as the whole system moves forward.

And I will be radical. Maybe they take turns leading!?

Mercury has some great big ideas in Sagittarius, but square Chiron in Pisces, Chiron isn’t ready for them yet. So keep a file of ideas to be pursued later. Find ways to talk about them that doesn’t overwhelm the more gentle folk. Learn how to drizzle them out, leave a breadcrumb trail until they can catch up, getting them used to the bits and progression of your ideas as they come along. They will be plenty excited when they arrive, thinking they thought those things up themselves! Smile.

The powerful long term background aspect is Jupiter sextile Pluto exact the first time Jan 15, the day before the New Moon! They travel closely together FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14. This aspect is strongly placed in the SuperMoon chart. The Moon trines Mars then Jupiter Jan 1 & 2, then Mars carries the energy until it conjuncts Jupiter Jan 6 and sextiles Pluto Jan 8. Moon, powerful in her own sign Cancer, trine Jupiter in Scorpio could mean incredible support for important causes. Women and children may be leaders in the news and education changes. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! New investments may be offered. Try them out. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

In Scorpio Mars is perhaps a silent partner, but is deeply courageous and terrifically on spot in Scorpio. Moon intuitively calls him to arms in her behalf for all those in danger or need. In Scorpio he can be sinuous, weaving and surfacing then going down for another look, returning with the truth of the matter, discovering how to navigate in treacherous situations. He can plant seeds along the way that dissolve some problems, allow other seeds to grow well in spite of adverse circumstances. With Jupiter, and he and Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, he may not say so, but he will offer hope for survival in a good way. Do your part.

Happy Full Moon and Happy New Year 2018!

First New Moon of 2018!
SIX Planets in Capricorn, Jupiter Sextile Pluto, Mars!

Tuesday Jan 16 at 6:17 PM Pacific, 26 Capricorn 54!

Capricorn Crescent Fairy Wings 2018 New Moon

The day before our Capricorn New Moon Jupiter sextiles Pluto, which could be wealth, super health, the mate of a lifetime! With SIX planets in Capricorn working hard for us – six ways to Sunday, including that Pluto, we will certainly be taking steps in those directions!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, so the link is in sync! Scorpio and Capricorn are pros. Scorpio makes the money that funds Capricorn’s goal! Capricorn uses it precisely, no time wasted, so the money goes further than expected. Good chance the project makes money before it is even finished! Scorpio makes astute relationships, whether personal or business. Capricorn places people well along the way, competently assessing their abilities, leading them to higher places they never knew they could get to. Health improves with happiness, and being in that right place at the right time can make us forget we ever had troubles. Good job!

Jupiter wants to educate, and Scorpio doesn’t spare the depth, perfecting every detail from inside to out! Jupiter sees the long term, so Scorpio opens his eyes below, above and beyond! This inner and outer vision at once opens all kinds of corridors. Old debris is carted away, energy is freed. Jupiter shouts the glory with a mighty song, perhaps not unlike the mischievous opera singer Cecilia Bartoli! Jupiter feels the huge support Scorpio offers with his strength and inner knowing. Scorpio is impassioned by the potential Jupiter sees and knows is within reach! See more

The Moon and Sun union is powerful! Moon goes through all the signs each cycle while the Sun is in that one sign. Moon brings facets of knowledge to Sun’s feet and he fills them with energy with all his Heart, lights them to brilliance! They can be gathered, brought to their full height, give their part wholly. At 26 Capricorn, one sign after the 26 Sagittarius Galactic Center, the insights from last month’s 26 Sagittarius New Moon are being worked into our daily lives.

Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet, starts the SIX planet Capricorn stellium! He sets the tone for integrity, responsibility, the ultimate practicality. He makes us aware of time and age, experience, has respect for wisdom. He is willing to work hard for core values, understands reality and necessity. Mercury had left him just days before, excited to carry the word about him, his principles, inspiring us to work as we can, the best we can, for what we believe in too.

  • Pluto is being sextiled by Jupiter as we have talked about above. Pluto in Capricorn can be pretty cool, even frozen, and perhaps he is glad to be warmed by optimistic Jupiter (Sagittarius’s planet) and the molten flow of his own sign, Scorpio’s underworld lava! Capricorn is looking at that mountaintop, but Pluto knows what lies below is the support the mountain needs. Hidden things, a mistaken premise, a weak link, can wreak havoc that may or may not be fixable. Better to prevent. Pluto was the God of the underworld. Listen to him, he’s seen it all.
  • Moon and Sun and Venus come next. Moon and Sun are only four degrees from the end of Capricorn. Sun has been in Cap 26 days now, knows what’s up and what is needed to complete the build. Moon in Capricorn brings her intuitive clarity, is Priestess of high womanhood, shepherds women and youngers to fulfill their missions. She and they take charge of what Sun can’t. Moon and Sun are making things whole – marrying male and female archetypes, allying young and old. Sun literally forges into new territory, higher dimensions, holds the Light in the darkest time of year. He mentors the way home.
  • At 26 degrees Moon and Sun are leaving Mars, Uranus and Chiron aspects behind, but carrying the knowledge forward. Mars inspires and has the courage to lead and act now! Uranus in Aries frees us from challenging old concepts, taildraggers, and teaches us how to unite disparate forces for common goals. Chiron asks for compassion, a stillness that we may see, for us to heal our addictions, to dream and believe. One day at a time. But Mars is right in with Uranus, then Chiron! 24, 24 and 25 degrees! Read on below….
  • Venus is mature in Capricorn, shifts out of Capricorn into Aquarius the next day. Moon catches up with her only 4 hours later, before she leaves. The two feminine planets merge to share caring and beauty, their special kind. There is a sweetness not always typical of Capricorn, and reality checks to keep them from falling for a wish rather than what is true. They know it is important to know that we humans are growing and rather than being perfect, it is the strength and quality of the striving that brings change and reward. They admire a working partner, gauge their choices by results.
  • The Sun doesn’t catch up with Venus until many signs later, Oct 26.

Mars has been traveling close with Jupiter since Dec 23, conjuncted Jupiter Jan 6. It has recently gained the foresight and farsightedness of Jupiter’s seeing, that Jupiter’s plans and picks stem from. And Jupiter’s optimism as well! Jupiter navigates successfully no matter what sign he is in! Though Mars is tremendously focused in Scorpio, even obsessed, there is still a broadening of attention, scanning for openings, quick ninja leaps through the eye of the needle!

Now at 24 Scorpio, Mars inconjunct Uranus at 24 Aries is a strange and amazing phenomenon. Things are off kilter and perfectly so. Mars is agile and enjoys the challenge! Mars is sure in Scorpio, but Uranus is swiftly unpredictable in Mars’s sign Aries! There is kinship, but it will not be a steady relationship. It may be long term, but random and erratic. It loosens the fibers of Mars in Scorpio and Mars surprises Uranus by magically appearing when no others could keep up! Mars may grab Uranus by the tail and hold him accountable – for a few moments, LOL!

Mars trines Chiron in Pisces. Chiron may hobble along at times, but Mars adroitly hurries him along, knowing Chiron likely has more ability than the old master lets on. Healing techniques and subtle business skills are shared. They can accomplish quite amazing feats together before others realize what has happened!

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Procyon in Canis Minor, the Puppy, is opposite our New Moon. Beware of growls, bites and slurpy kisses – maybe a hot temper, some violence! You have to know sequences to understand more of the meaning of stars. Bernadette Brady says: Procyon is the star that rises before the great Sirius, the Dog Star, the Shining One. It symbolizes rapid success but short-lived opportunities, for its bright rising light is quickly outshone by the rising of Sirius. Do business quickly, harvest your gains, move on! Opposite the New Moon may make you quite aware of this phenomena, especially if it triggers factors in your chart at 26.

Algol is at 26 Taurus trine the New Moon. Trines are good; Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus, you may have some personal insights. The head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Depending on who and when someone is talking, Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! As an earth sign, Capricorn is feminine though Saturnian, sometimes ruthless in business, could be an ardent artist leaving a valuable legacy of astonishing quantity! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. Likely the Capricorn stellium in trine, astrology’s best aspect, will mitigate the dark side. Capricorns are generally not afraid of the dark.

This New Moon is a worthy leader of 2018’s New Moons! It holds the successful Jupiter sextile Pluto energy. SIX Planets in Capricorn gets the job done!!! Algol will ramp things up, surreptitiously or very up front! Blessed be, carry on!

Capricorn - Switzerland's Lara Gut Skiing

Saturn’s sign change is profoundly preceded by Sunday December 17’s New Moon, new beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific, at 26 Sagittarius 31, the Galactic Center! See more!
Three days after Saturn enters Capricorn, Dec 22 Mercury’s Sagittarius RETROGRADE ends! Mercury turns forward, Direct 5:51 PM Pacific. So Saturn’s entry into Capricorn this time is meant to reconsider many options, stay flexible. See more!

Fittingly, it’s just two days before Winter Solstice, Sun into Capricorn! Saturn readies itself for its own special time of year by jumping into its own sign, a double Capricorn effect! Goats love that jumping thing and they often have very steady footing, daring to go where no one even wants to go, even ice climbing! While some bears are napping in the dark, others are out on the slopes racing at top speed, invigorated, cold air rushing by, down to the bottom, then ready to go back to the top and do it again! Ice skating is an inspiring skill! If you think Capricorn is a stodgy old sign, think again! Winter has its own kind of excitement!

After the frolic is over, it is sweet time having a hearty meal with friends, sitting by the fire, sharing grog and stories of journeys and of having overcome amazing challenges. One by one, people go off to their rooms, maybe you are left with reminiscing, going over what you will do differently next time. Images stream by. A stretch and it’s time to rest for another brilliant crisp day. As much as Saturn is a hard worker, and play can be hard work, Saturn makes you know it’s good to take time for yourself. We need those between times.

On the ground, Saturn in Capricorn are expert at building sustainable homes that will last forever, be well lived in for the right price! Remarkable features might be beautiful stained glass windows, skylights, strong timbers, special insulation. Landscaping may include reclaimed fencing, skillful terracing and artful stonework installations. Restoration and renovation are natural for them. Utilities are low and sustainably rendered.

Between nature’s laws and the rules for safe construction, Saturn and Capricorn have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. They are good at law enforcement, often take on a parental role, position of CEO, the boss. Chores may be important and no driving a car before your time or going out with ones older than you! Saturn might find us setting more clear boundaries for ourselves. We may become more clear how much time things take. Saturn with money planets or locations may require a strict budget. The other side of the coin is finances thrive, payback for long term hard work well done!

Saturn in Capricorn will likely bring more responsibilities to many who thought they couldn’t handle anymore! They may find themselves doing more than they ever expected, maybe even being asked to be the boss! Some will be pleased to find themselves doing quite well. Do negotiate a good salary, additional salary or a percent of the take. Others may find they need to back off and lighten the load. Chronic ailments sometimes stem from being too tired, tired all the time. Your body is not able to recover. As you get older, take that nap!

Knees may become important. Bending and proper surrender is a life skill. Overtaxing them has consequences. Bones and joints can only take so much stress. Don’t take yourself to the breaking point. Skin can suffer. Keep your pantry stocked with good quality food for road closed situations. Keep your body warm so you can get good rest.

In childhood, young Capricorns often have health challenges, but get super strong with age! They may be quite serious, but become cleverly funny, have a subtle wit, are truly funny comedians! Capricorn rules age. They are down to earth with a real smile when it comes. They deal with things as they happen and are often reliable to their friends even when they are down themselves. Saturn may bring some health cures, better living conditions and benefits for elders.

Saturn will reassesses relationships. Cappies take their relationships seriously. When they make a commitment their preference is to loyally keep it. Sometimes they stay too long. The other person may ‘need’ them. It has become a habit to suffer. They think it’s their fault. I’m no quitter. If I work hard enough and be a good person things will change. I’m too old to do this. Ok. Some of that may be true, but it doesn’t mean it will necessarily make it better. Take good care of yourself and talk with good solution oriented friends, advisors or counselors. If none of that is happening for you, wonderful! Keep letting your partner know how much you love them and are grateful they are in your life! They are lucky to have you!

SATURN RETURNS Saturn will be in Capricorn from Dec 19, 2017 and Dec 16, 2020. At the end of that time, Saturn will advance into Aquarius then retrograde back into Capricorn for awhile. If your Saturn is late Capricorn, check with your astrologer to see exactly when your Return is. Saturn was last in Capricorn 1988-91.

First Saturn Returns are at age 28/29. The second is about age 58. They can be serious. At age 28/29, many start lifelong careers, get significant promotions, get married, buy a house and the first child is on the way! For some, there can be hardships that cause delays and expected dreams never do come true. The Great Spirit has other plans for you. For some a Return may not even be a blip on the radar ’cause all’s well. 58 happens either way as well. There may be a second chance, retirement, a whole new tack in life! However it is, it will be Capricorn style.

CAPRICORN WITH OTHER SIGNS

Capricorn is the third and last of the Earth signs. The fertile lowlands and meadows, farms, are Taurus domain. Virgo tends the plants and animals, does superb property management, cleans the houses, is nanny to the children. Capricorn views them from that breathtaking hillside building they built, or from the high rise top floor, penthouse suite!

Earth signs generally get along with Water signs, but not always. Saturn/Cap is a hard worker. Pisces not so much. If the surf is up, they’re gone. If the business is music/film it can be a downright magical combination! Cancer and Cap are both highly interested in financial security, a good home for the family, family lineage, good jobs, long term relationships. Cap needs to consider their feelings, spend time with them. Scorpio is not only interested in superior financial commitments and insurance, a secure domain and business, but also needs dedicated and devoted relationships – both personal and business. Scorpio also wants your good health – state of mind and body. Capricorn is right on board with all that. Capricorn deeply values longevity and a history of success and integrity.

Saturn and Capricorn challenge the other Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer and LibraAries is boss allergic, independent to a fault! They are innovative rather than obedient. They want to be first! Cap needs to give them room to maneuver. Cancers like a supportive mothering relationship, consideration of their feelings. Saturn/Cap is sometimes just all business. Either do the job now or come back when you can. They don’t have time for this, get someone else. And maybe they are right. Let it go and get work more to your Spirit. At home, Cap, make time for the family and don’t talk business at that special time. They love you. Libra is social and wants you to be polite. Cap can be so to the point they are brusque with no amenities. Libra may be caught crying in the restroom. If Libra wasn’t such a good front person and so artistic, Cap might send them packing in a minute. If your boss is a Sat/Cap type, see if they balance their sometimes lack of manners with respect and acknowledge your good work. Cap, do a little thinking first. It may be quite worth those extra moments.

That leaves Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and Air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Leo can be a little flamboyant, which often warms that Caps heart as they can walk proud with such a glamourous Being! Sagittarius is hard to pin down since they love to travel so much, so unless it’s a travel business they do together, Cap doesn’t feel they are reliable. Gemini just keeps Cap spinning. The information better be good and succinctly given or they are banished! Aquarius was born to break rules and Sat/Cap lives for rules. However, if they are collaborating in a community organization, it works!

If you are older than 28/29, wherever Saturn is in your birth chart right now is where it was 28/29 years ago! Do know that the other planets are NOT where they were 28/9 years ago, so there will be some the same and a lot not! Each of your houses or sections of your chart have special purpose. Whatever ways Saturn is aspecting planets or factors in your chart, it is often memorable, sometimes profound.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Scorpio! European Space Agency trains six astronauts from all over the world in Sardinian cave!

ESA’s cave training prepares astronauts to work as an international team in real exploration conditions. Sending astronauts underground to survive and explore Sardinian caves in Italy for almost a week is just one element of their long training. The Sardinian caves are isolated from the outside world. The astronauts need to get used to confined spaces, minimal privacy, technical challenges and limited equipment and supplies for hygiene and comfort – just like in space, a lot like in Scorpio.

Background, Context!

Jupiter into Scorpio is first, Oct 10. Saturn is second, into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, leading into Winter Solstice, his own special time of year!

Sign changes set the tone and standards of their time. Each sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Jupiter in Libra learns how to establish fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be shared and deepened. Saturn in Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to build a significant Capricorn achievement.

Jupiter makes 4 repeated aspects that started late 2016, opened 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set was Jupiter opposition Uranus that finished the Jupiter set Sep 27. Saturn’s two aspects, running with the Jupiter set, finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!

Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus starts a year long series of nothing but positive aspects! Uranus is the planet of awakening, Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change together to find freedom. We can be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, Scorpio is Pluto’s sign! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice sign Capricorn builds strong because it knows what powerful weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.

Jupiter is in Libra until Oct 10. See Jupiter into LIBRA! While still in Libra, work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! In Scorpio, Jupiter goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality. Some relationships will be left behind, others renewed, rededicated, deepened. Profound relationships will be sought. Intensity is potent.

While in Scorpio, Jupiter makes two repeated aspects, three times each. The set starts with Jupiter trine Neptune, then sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet! Both are considered favorable. With Neptune there are Spiritual options, lucky dreams, oceanic business possibilities. With Pluto, there is a possible successful lifelong marriage that enhances business opportunities. Good time for recycling, restoration, remodeling and resale of properties. Could be breakthroughs in medical treatments. Fundraising at the right times may do well for years to come. Do check your personal timing with your astrologer!

In Scorpio Jupiter can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time of day. After we get used to this change of venue, two months later Saturn makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter into Scorpio October 10 

Sagittarius’ Jupiter is noted for long journeys, camping maybe. Scorpio loves things down under, dark is fine. Jupiter is a Fire planet, Scorpio is a Water sign. Sex sizzles or is steamy! Oil and gas. Definitely volcanic! You may find your Kundalini awakening full tilt!

Intense adventure with a hint of danger! Jupiter is more lucky than anyone should be and has longevity to boot! Scorpio’s sixth sense is always on, and threads through danger like through the eye of a needle! If there is an oops, Jupiter and Scorpio heal amazingly quickly. The biggest danger is distraction, losing focus, getting off track. Jupiter can spook like a horse just to see what will happen and even the best gamblers lose sometimes. Then there is the phrase, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Search and Rescue Maybe you are/were lost in Scorpio and Jupiter comes to find you. Or you are hell bent on getting away, maybe even a disappearance identity change scenario. Like the slavery underground railway you might travel by night, a long breathholding way to go. Or you love the strenuous challenge of finding people whether it is in the wilderness, underwater, or psychologically as a counselor! If there are disasters or injuries, your medical training keeps people alive. Perhaps there are matters of justice, an abuse of funds, a kidnapping. Needs to establish safe places, recovery, to restore our trust and faith!

Medical discovery requires a lot of faith as well as funding. Jupiter, ever optimistic, looks for the possibilities against the odds and in the unknown. In Scorpio there is no giving up. Scorpios know what suffering can be and how grave a danger continued suffering can be. Sometimes we love and lose with bitterness and shame. If there are physical, mental or spiritual impairments, Jupiter in Scorpio wants that to be cured as possible, or understood and there be relief. Traveling nurses and doctors will treat during epidemics and disasters, their own lives threatened, to help others.

Truth or consequences! Jupiter looks for the Truth. Scorpio has secrets, does and doesn’t look for Truth. Scorpio already knows some of the story anyway. It wants to know, but once it does, it doesn’t always share, and often for good reason. A Truth naively spoken or blurted out even with good intent, can do irreparable damage or set progress back for a long time at great cost. Revenge may be best served cold much later, but is sadly carried in a dark place in the injured person. Other times it finally comes out, all of it, and repairs can be started or a situation can finally be left behind. Jupiter will forgive, be optimistic or just move on. Scorpio, however, knows how to do endings. Loyal as they are, when they finally give up, there is no chance of going back. Zero. So, please be careful. Don’t push too hard and get zinged. Be considerate of deep feelings. You don’t have to understand or know everything. No poking the Tiger to see what it will do.

Further than you thought! Jupiter could just go on forever, and so could Scorpio. Oh my! Before you know it, you have run out of gas, it’s dark, and you didn’t pay attention to the signs! No snacks and no blankies. Oops! Hey, sometimes it’s fun to improvise and survive anyway! Or, you put your focus on it, anticipated the snags, asked for help, and got so more along that the project will be finished days in advance! You may have gotten well past half way and why turn back?!

Estimates are a snap. Jupiter can see potential and Scorpio looks for grit and knows the right price. Jupiter looks for how comprehensive your range of vision is, the scope of your education, that you won’t frivolously take chances like gambling, whether you will be a generous contributor to the greater cause. Scorpio susses out whether you can handle yourself when the chips are down and if you are astute at assessing others and their financial conditions. They will check whether you are easily seduced, can handle funds and don’t cheat with money or love. They don’t want to jeopardize their important plans. Don’t fool around; tell them what you can do very well. That’s the part they will engage you for. However, they may see a potential in you that you didn’t realize you have, and place you more accurately! Quite better than expected!

Jupiter in Scorpio with Other Signs!

Water Sign harmony! Scorpio is the second Water sign. Cancer is the Mother. Scorpio is the Other, our Life Mate. PIsces is the All is One, Spirit of Soul. Water signs flow into every crevice, are quick to see disturbances, are absorbed by feeling. Cancer wears her shell and can pinch you so you remember! Scorpio has the protective ground Scorpion, the Eagle to pierce the veils, revelation, and the Phoenix to escape. Pisces has the slithers, those fine silent fishy scales that merge and flex along waves of consciousness.

There are challenges with the other Fixed signs Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. Running away Jupiter is too frivolous and undependable for stay-with-the-land Taurus. Taurus is left behind in a heartbeat. Scorpio is opposite. While Taurus is guarding the loot, Scorpio wants to invest in the market or partner up in an investment! Leo is great with Jupiter, together inspiring each other to dramatic gestures, gamble and risk everything, teach! But Scorpio doesn’t trust them to keep their secrets and without thinking, Leo can put them on the spot. Leo spends Scorpio’s money for sure, and that gambling can be a problem. Eventually Scorpio may be forced to cut the credit access. Jupiter and Aquarius can easily run away together, wide open spaces call them, as far as you can see… Scorpio wants to know where they are, but Aquarius is no bird in the cage. Aquarius may be a total loner, and happy at it, but Scorpio needs a deep and loyal connection. Unpredictable Aquarius may have zillions of friends, but Scorpio could find them just too out of the box and is unsettled.

Fiery Aries with fire planet Jupiter are perhaps each just too independent. Either could go somewhere else in a moment. Aries and Scorpio are old soldiers, but they have different styles. Aries is a feisty frontliner while Scorpio sneaks silently behind the enemy lines invisibly, Ninja style.

Sagittarius is Jupiter’ sign, so there is rapport there, yet it is Scorpio’s neighboring sign, very different. It is as outgoing as Scorpio usually isn’t! Jupiter/Sagittarius are mutable, whimsical, changeable, while Scorpio is a fixed sign, it’s purpose to stabilize. But Sag is already gone. Poker faced Scorpio is relieved, no longer having to watch his back, protect his secrets, but misses that fun Sag who gets him out and makes him laugh. While there, Sag stirs the cauldron to see what rises! Scorpio may resist, meaning it will be no easy feat to get close enough right away, or maybe never. Often adventuring Sagittarius just won’t wait that long. Jupiter is usually well meaning, but that doesn’t mean you get the keys to the kingdom. Jupiter in Scorpio will not always be a comfortable combination.

Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn Scorpio is midway, sextile, between Virgo and Cap. Plenty of potential. What Jupiter in Scorpio can fund, those earth signs can make happen! Virgo is mutable, adaptable and generally hard working and dependable. Jupiter likes to take time off to play. But earthy Virgo and stabilizing Scorpio are detail and perfection oriented, so the bookkeeping gets done, things kept in order. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet has been in Capricorn since 2008, and will be until 2024, well established. Comparatively Jupiter in Scorpio only 1 year is a blip on the radar that Pluto will incorporate. With Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio the absorption will be easier. Some old conservative Capricorn behaviors, business structures, will linger, but if Jupiter can show them a better way and how to incorporate that with little expense and super returns, Pluto in Cap will make the changes. Jupiter sextile Pluto is a do business combination! Casual Jupiter may look the Fool, but don’t underestimate him in Scorpio. Don’t miss out on the potentials he offers.

Air signs Gemini and Libra. Jupiter has just left Libra, so what laws were made are on the books, needing to be blended in to Scorpio relationships, business and health practices. Liaison’s need to be tended. A balance has been set. Gemini is Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius’ opposite sign. Gemini provides the information Jupiter sifts to see trends. Talkative Gemini and Libra may drive quiet observant Scorpio a bit nuts at times. Have meaty info and be pithy in your brief presentation or Scorpio may turn his back, move on without you.

Jupiter Return!

Jupiter Returns are every 11 to 12 years. Jupiter comes back to the same place it was in our birth charts. Of course, the other planets currently in the sky aren’t where they were before, so each return is different, yet the essence of Jupiter with Jupiter in its birth sign, and the house (section) of your chart it is in, and the aspects it makes, are the same. A planet conjuncting itself has an effect of purity. It’s a reminder of your original intent when you were born. Jupiter Returns are considered lucky, and in Scorpio can indicate wealth! But sometimes they make us see a Truth we have been avoiding and in Scorpio it may pay to see your therapist. If there are difficulties, it may exaggerate them. Expansion and growth in this case can mean obsession/compulsion, being or becoming overweight. Or you can win the lotto! Maybe you always wanted a horse, and in Scorpio, it could be a winner! Or you take the trip of a lifetime, which might be to embark on education or training that makes all the difference! Maybe you waited a long time and finally find a partner that impresses you. This may be the time to write and publish! Jupiter tells extraordinary tales and Scorpio journalists may have a secret to write about that is more safely cloaked in a novel. A documentary could be exquisite with images to make you laugh and weep at the same time!

There are many extraordinary people who will be having or would have had their Jupiter Returns 2017/18! The Dalai Lama, David Bowie, Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears, Elvis Presley, Justin Bieber, Uma Thurman, Mariah Carey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Aleister Crowley, Steven Spielberg, and, uh, Charles Manson and Ted Bundy! Many of these people are/were intense, have been in life and death situations, had huge financial circumstances, and high notoriety or charisma!

Phoenix, Eagle or bat?! Jupiter flies high like the Sagittarian arrow. The Scorpio Eagle soars, a bird of prey, with keen vision putting things in perspective, showing us the reason for being. Scorpio Halloween bats fly at night using their ‘radar’ to ping off their surroundings. A bat eats 6,000 to 8,000 insects each night, keeping our environment in balance. Free of biters, naggings, they clear the air and the mind! Jupiter enhances Scorpio’s powers to transform. At times there is burn out, a crash and burn, and the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Scorpio heals miraculously, and is a superb healer, both physical and mental! Jupiter enhances and amplifies all those possibilities!

If you are crawling out of the tunnel into the Light, Scorpio may have given you gifts of power within. You left fear behind. Healing happened when you were stripped of all dignity and became so humble you became permeable. Jupiter carried the coals of the caravan from camp to camp, the Light. Spiritually speaking, you may be having a burning fire Kundalini awakening, a burning away of the dross, become gifted with clear sight to see where you are going. By the time you are done with Scorpio, you are ready to become the Sagittarian Pathfinder, the Teacher. A lot can happen in one year.

Nov 8, 2018 Jupiter will be coming home to his own sign Sagittarius, starting a new 11/12 year cycle! The goodness of Scorpio is the foundation for Sagittarius.

Wishing you strength and the deepest love on your remarkable journey.
