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….

Sagittarius! I’ll Take You There….

Sagittarius Kirkwood Mountain Resort Lake Tahoe CA

Mid November might find you at ski resorts, flying down slopes, or warming by the fire after a glorious day! Working at or on holiday, lights are on at Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Lake Tahoe CA Snow Report Forecaster Bryan Allegretto

‘I’ll take you there’ has a lot of options. A great trail guide, the Path through your neighborhood, a horse you love, buying a truck with 4 wheel tires, super sex, teaching sign language to the deaf, practicing your Faith, a march for land or people, being an informant. You might become famous or infamous or teach for 40 years seeing many changes. Your lucky chance may have put you on the map. You may think you have missed it and are regrouping, or you are still waiting for your time to come! Life takes many turns and has many precious moments!

A backpacker pal of mine always said ‘Pick a room with a view!’ That meant where you stopped for a trail break, to placing your tent for a perfect wake up view to start your next day. In your life, pick a room with a view – great people, a job that fills your heart, a location that sings to you, a home that sleeps you peacefully and requires only an amount of care that lets you be away for a period of time with no regrets!

Location, location, location! In Sagittarius’s mind, that’s often one to another, plenty of vacations! In business that can mean a franchise, import/exports, additional locations or special production locations! Sagittarians learn quickly and often move on, and it may not be on your schedule. Surf’s up in Africa or Australia (Sagittarian continent), snow fell & slopes are open! However, if your Sag has Mercury and/or Venus in Capricorn, they may stick around, quite dedicated to the work, or be excellent business people in world businesses that require travel. It’s more planned than impetuous.

What a rich fantasy life! Or it may be 100% real. They travel for food and culture and write the book or blog on world cuisine. Their observations of sacred places are keen, forthright, and show a perspective that paints an irresistible picture of an adventure that is there in the offing. If they aren’t writing, they are publishing! They recognize a good read! Images of world people make you want to go there to help or be taught or both…or just be with them for a time. Sagittarians give you outrageous tips on how to travel cheap or in luxury beyond compare! You may need physical assistance – hire a travel helper, get the perfect accommodations and choose gentle nearby places to see by transportation. If you are young and at prime, it may be no less than Kathmandu, and often cross country! Depending on your game, you might be traveling through sacred portals checking out other dimensions!

Goofy or brilliant, friendly, great storytellers, Sagittarians are usually welcome wherever they go. They are interested in who you are, what you believe, what you do and how you do it. They don’t mind getting dirty, love dancing at night! Sadly, there are times the TruthTeller is unknowingly rude with questions or comments, or offensively loud per the occasion. True, sometimes there are unfriendly areas or times of danger with narrow escapes! But lucky as they are and always forward thinking, without thinking they have already subconsciously, intuitively noted backdoors and escape routes. They are quick to respond, and they are away!

Sagittarians are a spirited fire sign and generally healthy forever! If you are senior, the backcountry and off the beaten track days may be over. A tour group, places that have medical services you might anticipate needing are your best choices. Otherwise you might be perfectly able to take your chances and the local shaman will take care of you. Rest at the Temple. When you are in town, at home, take good care of your body. Do what keeps your health. Avoid long term behaviors that have consequences later on. Aging is a reality and it always comes sooner than we want, LOL!

Relationships may be a challenge. Saggies can make big promises and tell you what they think will make you happy because they want you to be happy. But it may not be them that is the one. At first arrival they might think they can do it, but then they are gone. If they have a history of traveling, see if you would like to go with them. If you aren’t made of the same stuff, at some point you may come home and they go on. Could be bittersweet – the adventure of a lifetime, but you miss them terribly. So get to know your Sag. They are big Souls. If you always wanted to go on a big trip, do it. But don’t keep them prisoner.

Some Sagittarians are quite opinionated, narrow minded, and passionately so! If you are of the same opinions, no problem. Most have a wide angled philosophy, glad to meet anyone, anywhere, anytime! Half horse, half human, Sagittarian centaurs are their own brand of ‘biracial!’ They are naturally accommodating of, tolerate differences, or, in fear of their own true wildness, vehemently oppose difference! The open side of them learns from every race, culture, faith and age. They see the goodness each has to offer. But if the range of strange they are capable of is too much for you, it’s fun to watch for awhile, then you may fade away. The middle ground is good – a few hot opinions, plenty of learning.

They are both hunters and gatherers. They are seekers of greater wisdom. They gather the diamonds as they go. Sag is what we call a mutable sign, adaptable. They can pull off mergers of informations and people like no one else! They magically appear in your life, adjust a few factors, clear up some of your thinking, then vanish to their next spiritual assignment, walking the BlessingWay of all, women and men. As the Winged Pegasus, they fly above guiding the way.

Sagittarius 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Sagittarius Geminids Meteor Shower West

December 13, 14 – The Geminids, king of the meteor showers!

After being washed out by the 2016 December supermoon, the Geminids will come roaring back in 2017 near the New Moon, a darker sky! The famous and bright meteor shower will peak on the night of Dec. 13 and morning of Dec. 14.

The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers every year because the individual meteors are bright, and the peak can see meteors stream across the sky at rates as high as 120 meteors an hour. Under light-polluted skies, fewer meteors will be visible.

The Geminids meteor shower is nearly 200 years old, according to known records — the first recorded observation was in 1833 from a riverboat on the Mississippi River — and is still going strong. In fact, it’s growing stronger. That’s because Jupiter’s gravity has tugged the stream of particles from the shower’s source ― the asteroid 3200 Phaethon ― closer to Earth over the centuries.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Sagittarius 2017 – Dec 2018!

Sagittarius Snowy Mountains Oh, Darling, Let's Be Adventurers

And so we shall!

  1. We are now starting a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018!
  2. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Sagittarius’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. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. 
  3. RETROGRADES! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!.

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.

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 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! Water and earth Pluto and Capricorn are at times a challenge for Sagittarius. They have a more collected tone, a powerful distillation of techniques, practices tested by expert elders, that have stood the tests of Time. There may be a serious commitment to be made before joining the ranks, but the reward may be worth it forever. Just be sure you want to know and owe that much. Will you have freedom to make changes of your own? All that may seem somewhat like limits to Sagittarius, but if their goals are in accord, Sag is a clever one, pushing from behind. Sag buoys up the workers ahead, reminding them of the importance of the goal and assuring them they can do it! Good to have them with you!

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 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. When in those degrees, fiery Sagittarius is dampened, yet inspired by Neptune. Pisces sees beyond within, a greater picture. Sagittarius sees across the valley, follows the path of the arrow arching over the rainbow! Sag is ever optimistic, and sooner or later can see through Neptune’s veil. At times when Neptune would give up, Sagittarius reminds him of the Soul purpose Sagittarius sees in him. Sagittarius is called to step up to Neptune’s music, wordless wisdom, to behold the dreams of the vastitudes beyond a merely earthly journey…

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees 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 Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Fiery Sagittarius loves the neverending vanishing point! Journeying is a verb. How far can we go?! Sagittarius’s purposes are stretched to the limit by universal Uranus! Uranus is the SkyKeeper, the one who sees all Humanity. Sagittarius is always skittering and scattering all the jewels of knowledge it can to anyone who will listen and take on the project! Aries is the Leader of New, so they make perfect companions!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. But Uranus is the Earth Shaker and there may be clusters of shakes! Your life may be loosened, electrified, askew, a bit out of control. Sagittarius may be frustrated by the slow down and delays, but is a mutable, super adaptable sign. It takes the pieces offered, integrates them in such a way that they are innately speeded up, so happy in their most august rightful magical places! Sagittarius may enjoy some slowing down to smell the roses and feel good to have done the deed! Not still for long though, because his long vision eyes and consciousness see more possibilities and he’s off again!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 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. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron leads Sagittarius through miraculous channels of energy flow, not a feet on the ground type of traveling. Sagittarius is ever observant, watching the directions, sign posts along the way. He wants to possibly have later access, review the practices of the Healer in action, that he, Sagittarius, may have the divine privilege of teaching to others when they are ready for this magic.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing 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! During those years, Chiron will be intriguing Sagittarius, a very willing follower on a seemingly inscrutable path. Sagittarius will be seeing not just with his eyes, but with his very Soul! Chiron in Aries will challenge, taunt, and there will be laughs! Kokopelli dances before us, dashing and silly, but has our attention! He is unique beyond words, almost scary, he does know the way better than we do! Sagittarius is right at home!

SATURN builds from 26 Sagittarius, the Galactic Center, to 10 Capricorn now through December 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

Right now Saturn is IN Sagittarius at the degree of the Galactic Center! That leaves only 4 more degrees in very late Sag, 26, 27, 28, 29. Only if you have planets at those late degrees will there be any more activation of them by Saturn in Sag. Work and play. Travel and people. Building and lasting Beauty. Cathedrals. History and future potential. Creating a profound curriculum. Lot of nice options here, connections being made. Learning and observing leads to restored faith and this year, especially as applied to recovery from fires, floods, quakes. Ideas for whole new businesses have and will spring up.

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced 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.

Those with Saturn 26 to 29 degree Sagittarius in your charts will be having your Sagittarian Saturn Returns between now and Dec 19! Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s target far, far away. Saturn knows so much is doable. One step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarians will have their learning place built, the very process teaching hope. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, 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!

In Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, Sagittarius will be led further than philosophy! Saturn wants to build a place for it! The home with a view, the school that withstands tumults of nature or age. Capricorn assures sustainability, the future Sag has been talking about! Together they see the future and use land and materials wisely. Saturn demonstrates Sagittarian proposals better than Sag could by himself! Sag is corralled into being the project overseer, consultant, even hired from another country that has had the experience. Saturn and Sagittarius are dynamite together! Saturn works like a dog, leaps like a goat! If the cause is dear to Sag’s heart, he’s on board, brings the horses!

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 10 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! 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 may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

JUPITER moves from 9 Scorpio to 10 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 doctorhood, 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 in its own sign Sagittarius! Is that running away or running to?! Do they take their teaching seriously or are they traveling nomads who get away with things, literally, because they are fancy free? They may be the head of the university, or home schooling their children. But blue skies and all kinds of weather call them. They have to be moving. They love different lands and people. Import/export businesses have their name on them, but somebody else has to do the paperwork! They are accused of being procrastinators, and maybe so, but to them it’s just doing something else that they like doing better at the time. Many don’t want to be tied down by home ownership or kids, even marriage. If you are lucky, you may get to join them on their travels. Having a school in a foreign land or two or three, combines that travel lust and sharing the knowledge. They are natural born Seers. They are potently aware of shifting perspectives, directions and future potentials. That’s why they seem so lucky! They are in the right place at the right time. They generally have marvelous health and live long and happy.

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – double Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Ascendant + 4 planets stellium in Scorpio. See his phenomenal Chart

If your Jupiter is in these Scorpio or Sagittarius degrees, 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! 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.

Here’s the 2018 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus
Sep  25 Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces
Nov  6  Uranus retrograde back into Aries
Nov  8  Jupiter from Scorpio into own sign Sagittarius!

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians! Blessed be Forevermore.


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Long Night Cold Full SuperMoon!
Jupiter trine Neptune, Full Moon T Square, 4 Planet Sagittarius Stellium!

Sunday Dec 3 at 7:47 AM Pacific, 11 Gemini/Sagittarius 40! 

Sagittarius Long Night Cold Full Moon Goverla Ukraine

Moonrise over alpine peak Goverla – highest point of Ukraine! Unforgettable beauty worth the dangerous night-climbing in winter.

When the “Full Cold Moon” rises on Dec. 3, it will also be the first and last “Supermoon” of 2017! A Supermoon is a Full or New Moon at perigee (nearest approach to The Earth). This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. If you are coastal, Surf’s UP!

This Full Moon is perfect to spread its wings illuminating the Jupiter trine Neptune of the day before! That trine is a blessed ‘dreams come true’ aspect that happens two more times during 2018, May 25 through Aug 19! This is the culmination of what has been the preview time for May-August. We have been setting our goals, finding the best ways to make it all happen! The Full Moon spans Gemini, the Word, to Sagittarius, the Pathfinder! Information and purpose. Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! AND, it all links by degrees! All four are at ELEVEN degrees!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, a heads up planet in a down deep sign! Scorpio has the deepest desires, founded from its roots in the Earth, in subterranean caverns with underground rivers! They are not afraid of danger, scuba divers in wild territory. Jupiter is like a periscope, making sure things topside are safe and clear for the undertaking. Jupiter rules longevity and Scorpio rules death. What a mix! But then, Scorpio is ruled by the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes! Jupiter carries that momentum forward. Wise attention to health, avoiding toxic behaviors, keeps us clean and in top shape!

Neptune in its own sign Pisces makes magic! Scorpios are survival experts and fast healing, great healers! In the world, Neptune is the Ocean and its shores. Out of this world it is like a ship far, far at sea. It has to do with the spiritual realm, that we become part of when we meditate. We can feel not just our Self, but that Self in others, universal being – we are one. We have insights to matters in our lives. When we are not sitting we may be sailing, or making extraordinary music, art, hypnotic dance. In business, Jupiter sees the amazing potential that Scorpio runs astutely financially. Far seeing Jupiter expands, the vision Neptune has and makes it a success!

The Moon in Gemini feeds our minds. It insightfully merges clusters of data. makes safe connections. Sun in Sagittarius is watching the progress and with its gift of perspective, plugs in the bits in perfect places that fuel the journey. Sun lights the way and takes them further than Moon ever realized could happen. This Full Moon is like opening the big book of life, full and wide, writing the chapters as it goes!

Venus leads the way of the four planets in Sagittarius, as Mercury has retrograded the day before, Dec 2 at the last degree of Sagittarius! Mercury is still in the 8 day station (turning point), focusing, concentrating, anchoring his ideas. This 18 day foursome, stellium, started Dec 1 and continues through Dec 19 when Saturn enters Capricorn! Mercury is going back to meet Saturn, makes the conjunction Dec 6. Since Mercury crossed this degree as he was going forward, it is a review for him. With Saturn he is making commitments, cementing certain agreements. Saturn charges him to report accurately, no embellishing. Mercury inspires Saturn to think more broadly, to encompass the entire territory, have a truly realistic plan for his future, likely bigger to build than previously expected, but worth the extra time and work.

Venus at 2 degrees stands alone. She is free to do a few escapes or escapades! She was just in Scorpio and has discovered some extra fun things to do! In Sagittarius, she can show the beauty of far lands and peoples. She can teach something unpalatable and people love it! She shows its intrinsic value and how to raise it to respect, to recognize a style that is delightfully different. That old stuff in the back of the garage takes on new meaning! Philosophical discussions are blessed. Everyone prospers!

It is true, Moon and Sun T Square Neptune! Squares can block energy, and can release energy as facing and dealing with the blocks  opens gateways. Sagittarius sees the Path ahead. Pisces can obscure the exact steps until it’s time, then miraculously the fog clears and we’re on! Delays or not knowing are not always ‘bad.’ Denial keeps us from making change. Know that you are safe, be in a safe place and you will be pleased with the steps you can take. They may be small at first as you test the waters. That’s perfect. You are you, do it your own way, but do note your personal progress. Moon in Gemini can overwhelm you with chatter, but then that blanket of input can be what was needed to make a difference. Maybe it acted as a droning, you ignore and relax, and all of a sudden a phrase catches your attention, and some things fall right into place! That information ahead keeps feeding the project as things develop!

It may be a long night cold Full Moon, but you have Sagittarius to keep you warm, and his planet Jupiter trine Neptune to keep you steady at the helm! May Lady Luck be with you now and always!

Galactic Center New Moon!
5 Planet Sagittarius Stellium! Stars Polaris & Betelgeuse!

Sunday December 17 at 10:30 PM Pacific, 26 Sagittarius 31!

Sagittarius Crescent Moon Kinuko Yamabe Craft

Kinuko Yamabe Craft is a Japanese-born American contemporary painter, illustrator and Fantasy artist. She is one of the most widely respected and well known fantasy artists in the United States today. See her art!

In the dark of the New Moon, expanded visions and wisdom anoint our Soul, especially this time!!! This one is conjunct the Galactic Center, the center of our Galaxy, 26 Sagittarius! The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher. We see what surrounds us with greater comprehension.

Saturn conjuncts/conjuncted the GC 26th degree Nov 15 to 24, as it did 28, 29 years ago! Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed,’ stood still there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Saturn is now at 29 degrees Sagittarius, completing his Sagittarius promises. This New Moon tunes us in exactly for one last boost before Saturn leaves Sag and enters his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! We mustn’t forget the long term goals and the recent successes they are built on. Brick by brick. We must keep the greater picture in mind, why we are fighting the good fight, forever expanding in a good way. Keep looking over that Rainbow!

Our 26 Sagittarius New Moon is opposite Polaris, the North Star, and Betelgeuse at 28 Gemini! Polaris is like a little Galactic Center of its own. It stands almost motionless in the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. It has been a ‘guiding light’ to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night, and other navigators. The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens.” Elsbeth Ebertin said ‘The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. If it is conjunct with planets in the angles [ASC/MC], the native will have a good sense of discretion and is able to follow “his instinct”. He clearly recognizes his aims, and will pursue and achieve them.’

Betelgeuze, the main star of Orion, the great winter constellation of the north. According to the old master Ptolemy, Betelgeuze gives martial honor, preferment and wealth. It can indicate a superior athlete, being endowed with outstanding agility and speed of body. And, luck, success and everlasting fame are promised.

Being opposite the New Moon indicates a need to reach across the table and introduce yourself. There will be differences and integration through sharings. Offer your best.

Saturn and the Moon and Sun are part of a five planet Sagittarian stellium! They are all in a connected string starting with Mercury at 15 degrees. Venus is next at 21, then Moon/Sun 26 and Saturn at the final Sag degree 29!

15 degrees is at the mid of Sagittarius tipping the balance toward the completion side. However, Mercury is Retrograde, will go back two more degrees, to 13, to review unfinished ideas. So not quite there yet. Mercury conjuncted Venus the 15th, giving her his accum of ideas so far, for her to carry forward for him. Moon shared sweets with Venus at 10:34 AM Pacific, 12 hours earlier than the New Moon. Have breakfast with someone special that morning! She shared Mercury’s info with Moon. Moon in turn, shares with Father Sun who lights it all up! Mercury’s wee idea becomes important for all to see, so attend this sequence if your chart connects with these degrees. Quite hopeful! Mercury turns forward the 22nd but doesn’t catch up with Venus until Mar 4 at 26 Pisces, square the Galactic Center! They have then been through Sag, Cap, AQ and Pisces, getting a bit of perspective, but for the moment, Mar 4, things are stalled or need extra attention to push on through. Maybe something was left out. Go back to December 15th for the clue.

Venus figures prominently because she first squares Chiron, then trines Uranus in Aries!

The square with Chiron can be a temporary challenge with your love life, business or health. Eat well. Take time to talk things over. Pay attention to what needs doing. It may come and go quickly and show you a weak spot that needs strengthening. Do shore up that area so it doesn’t become a problem down the road.

Venus with Uranus may sweep you off your feet, so don’t forget to make notes about that Chiron item! Both are in fire signs, they have the spark! Fascination, inspiration, wisdom and crazy exhilaration! Since Uranus is retrograde, he is coming back to meet her! She so admires how quick he is on his feet, his dance moves are like blazing lightning! She is impressed by his instant intelligence and he ‘gets’ her! Her long vision is totally understood by him and he raises the ante! They make their exact aspect the afternoon and evening of Dec 20! It’s your Winter Solstice gift if it connects with your chart 24 Sagittarius/Aries! Fantastic and wicked great ideas! Could be a 3 day affair, but it will leave you breathless with memories!

Sagittarius wants to run with it, ride the horse into the wind, skate so fast your hair goes backward! Sag will go anywhere it can, chatting and consulting for the whole enchilada! Different cultures blend and everyone is thrilled to find such grand and gallant solutions! It’s so much fun checking out the possibilities. Your mind expands right in front of your eyes! Moon is no fool, in Sagittarius might surprise you with a charming funny story you can’t resist! Sun has a big heart, wants knowledge to bring people together, to achieve greater goals one couldn’t do alone. Moon is less shy, Sun feels sheltered by her loyalty and love. Under umbrellas in the courtyard, Moon opens the cafe featuring exotic cultural foods; Sun brings the customers!

Saturn at 29, the end of the sign, is mature, experienced. He looks at the strength in the structure. He reminds them to make timely changes – a cafe is only a metaphor for what you might actually do. You might write a story that centers around a family in a multicultural neighborhood and it gets published. Saturn looks reality right in the face and if you listen, he will tell you reasonably your chances for success. He will have sensible reasons for his appraisal. Some things could be adjusted, but if the whole idea is off, I would give it some serious thought and check out other possible options. Saturn can save you a ton of time. If he says go for it, ask him where the most work will be needed. Betcha he will be right!

The Jupiter trine Neptune ‘dreams come true’ aspect is over, but the ideas that came with it aren’t! You have the inspiration. Keep working your plan.

Mars stands unhindered, alone in Scorpio. Yes, Jupiter is there, but they are 9 degrees apart. Mars won’t catch up until Jan 6. For now he is on his own. Mars likes being on his own. Independent cuss, though in Scorpio he may be seeking a mate, a forever mate. Don’t be tricked, trapped, bought or sold, or seduced before your time. If you have good chart combinations, it could be the love of a lifetime. Mars wants to lead, fight for your rights, get you started on your own! In Scorpio he can show you the way to acquiring the funding you need, help you secure your financial footing. He may be inscrutable, or stand right in front of you until you see. You may grow to trust him with your life. But get a credit check and find out his relationship and business history. Common sense. If you feel doing that might threaten your relationship, ask yourself why.

As our last New Moon was in a Bowl Pattern, uncommon, so is this one! A Bowl pattern attracts and collects energy in the many ways its planets are in their signs, the circuits they make or don’t among themselves. The energy is contemplated, examined, sorted, healed, enhanced, energized, redistributed. It may be partially or all held for use by the recipient, or perhaps for safekeeping. When the time is right, all or part of it may be poured forth back into the Universe to hold a specific place in the Light Grid. It may be sent to be a receiver/transmitter. It may be called to in turn heal a weak spot in the valence. You can use this kind of energy sustenance to repair, as an upgrade replacement, or as a system connection of your own. A clean array can attract more amazing energy to mingle with and upgrade to further levels of understanding. No limits! That is especially true with the major magnetic sign of this bowl being Sagittarius! Hopeful, confident, abundant, leading the way!

Depending on time of day and where on earth this New Moon chart occurs, the ‘bowl’ may be over the top of the chart acting as a hood! Rather than collecting from above, it gathers rising energy forms from below or ones floating about with no particular destination. Some are keepers, some are transformed and put to a greater use, others yet are dropped to shift and circulate further until they return and are ready to fit the scenario of the ‘bowl.’ Or they just move on to where they do fit, or are forever wanderers. The keepers, the ones the bowl processes, then may be like a living shower of energy collected, potently merged, united in cause, dispersed into the mainstream to magnetize others.

So here we all stand, present and collected at the Galactic Center together! The Light of all the stars shines on us. Listen for all you are worth. Send in your two cents and be counted. We are one planet’s collective Spirit. There are things we don’t understand yet. Other things we truly know in our Souls.

Mercury Retrograde Sagittarius Sauk Mountain Switchbacks

Sauk Mountain Trail Switchbacks, Rockport Washington 1,100′ Elevation gain

This is the last Mercury Retrograde of 2017! The next one will be in March 2018 in Aries, another fire sign! Revisions will be spirited! Last Rx, Leo/Virgo, I touted as the most significant of 2017 due to the US Total Solar Eclipse during the Rx and all the New & Full Moon connections! This one is important because it hosts Saturn’s 29 year sign connection with the Galactic Center, and its change from Sagittarius into its own sign Capricorn! Mercury guides us across this threshold, stirring things up so we see the living process of Father Time’s sign change.

While Saturn is still in Sagittarius, it is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER, 26 Sagittarius, Nov 15 to 23! The Mercury Rx cycles starts Nov 15, so for the first 8 days of the Rx cycle, it is a time of ‘huge infusion,’ the portal to and through the Galaxy and beyond is available! And, the Nov 18 Scorpio New Moon makes us a more sensitive receiver, deepens our perceptions. Dec 17 the Sun makes its annual conjunction with the GC, but this time its the Sagittarius New Moon, Moon and Sun, AT the GC! Since it is during Mercury retrograde, it performs some kind of a retrieval, a remembrance, revives something that must be updated, regathered and not left behind.

In those 8 days Saturn is at the GC, Mercury is 13 to 24 degrees Sagittarius. Mercury will recross those degrees twice more, retrograde Dec 10-22, then when forward Dec 22 to Jan 6, finishing the Mercury Rx cycle. Mercury will itself conjunct the GC 3 times – Nov 26/27, Rx Dec 8 and Jan 7/8, 2018. At the times Mercury is in the degrees it was at when Saturn was at the GC, and when Mercury conjuncts the GC, take special time to check in, be more alert to signs. Ask that the highest be done and that you be shown how to get there, whether it is personal or for the world. Blessed be.

Switchbacks, retrogrades, make it easy to get up the mountain, make it possible! This Rx is in Sagittarius, and Sagittarius would surely be going up as the ascending arrow, its sign symbol, indicates. You do need to be careful that you don’t kick rocks off the trail, as there are often others below you.

As you ascend, the Sagittarian view just keeps getting bigger, more expansive, inclusive. You get a picture of the layout of the land and where the people are. You make adjustments in your thinking and attention. Unless you have been on that trail before, it’s still a guess if the next rise is the top or a false top with more yet to go. At the top it can be exhilarating, even if it is plenty hot, or cold as all get out plus a dangerous icy wind and slippery! Sometimes it’s a languishing picnic, fill-your-eyes rest stop, pictures of all directions, poses of prowess! Other times it’s a quick snap, we made it, let’s get down outta here! But you did it!

Use retrogrades fully by being alert, open to the broader view, new opportunities. As with mountain hikes, there are new visions around the corner, greater options possible, because the other planets keep right on moving, while Mercury is refreshing the screen and thinking things through. One step leads to another. Things absolutely do change! They are supposed to.

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Nov 15 at 13 Sag. Mercury goes up to 29 Sag, the very end of Sag, and retrogrades Dec 2, back to 13. He then turns forward, direct, Dec 22, the day after Winter Solstice (Saturn newly in Capricorn as of Dec 19) and goes back to 29 Sag on Jan 10, 2018, crosses the threshold into Capricorn that very day, and continues on into the New Year.

The Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sag and Pisces will be challenged. Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn prefer things stable and steady, but they are not exempt. Other fire, Aries and Leo, and air signs, Libra and Aquarius, will enjoy the shifts and changes! Mercury will midpoint sextile connect with Libra and Aquarius acting as their go between, plugging in astounding ideas just as fast as they can take them in. Have a party with all your Libra, Sag and AQ friends!

If the retrograde connects with your chart, here are some good tips!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – with Sag, that especially means vehicles, travel conveyances and image devices – cameras, video, telescopes, cell phones. Get new apps well in advance, and learn to use them with ease. Be sure traveling companions have all their shots, including your pets. Have your schedule handy. Keep your goals in mind, though don’t be surprised if they suddenly change directions!

During the retrograde, keep irreplaceable valuables with you. No stowing with your luggage in the hold. No important papers tossed in the backseat because you are in a hurry. Keep your keys in mind, slow down and don’t lock them in the car! You could temporarily put them on a tether device around your neck – glasses too. Mercury Rx is famous for losing things, though sometimes something lost in the last Rx turns up in the current one! Don’t forget to immediately change your appt book the minute an adjustment is made in your timing. Call in advance to be certain you are scheduled and at the time you think the appt is. Scout about for paperwork needed at least the day before. Do get people to sign things that need to be signed, including yourself! Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done Jan 10!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Sagittarians believe in big and better, but due to no fault of their own, things change and the deal can’t be made after all. They didn’t lie, they just didn’t know. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.  However, if one falls through, an even better one can happen! One just clears the way or leads to the next!

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

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at what you are left with, polish it, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and invite those people traveling your way. Hear them all out and merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

There are three important outer planet factors during this Retrograde cycle! That’s not common since outer planets move more slowly. Here’s the timetable:

Nov 15 to 23 Saturn at Galactic Center degree, Mercury is at 13 to 24 degrees Sag
Nov 15  Mercury Retrograde starts first phase
Nov 18  Scorpio New Moon
Nov 25  1st Mercury trine Uranus

Jan  10  Three part cycle finishes, Mercury goes into Capricorn 9:09 PM Pacific
Jan  12  3rd Mercury conjunct Saturn, Capricorn
Jan  15  1st Jupiter sextile Pluto More on this soon….
Jan  16  Capricorn New Moon

RETROGRADE starts Dec 2 the same day as Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, trines Neptune. It is considered a Dreams-come-true aspect, travel and Soul healing. A good time to consult the Oracle’s Oracle, yet with Mercury starting his journey, all will not come out as predicted! Mercury in Sagittarius can lead Scorpio on, both can be a bit of tricksters. Mercury by nature, ruling Virgo, is opposite Pisces. Mercury co-rules Gemini, square Pisces, and in Sagittarius square Pisces, reports may be difficult to confirm, and even if confirmed, are not solid indicators. And yet Jupiter trine Neptune is considered wondrous, capable of significant miracles and psychic! Go eyes open, trust your core.

To add to it, the Dec 3 Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon follows the next day! Gemini Moon sees a thousand facets; Sun in Sagittarius tries to gather them to a focus. Moon is intuitional and she knows when things are not in divine order in communications. She can be protective of the information held close to her bosom though Sag tries to tease her to tell. Mercury has two signs, Gemini is one. So he now in Sagittarius opposite Gemini, is at his most extensive range, with the Sun, is also circling for clues. Another scenario might be Sag is a bit opinionated; Moon floods him with ideas and data that alter his point of view. Moon provides vital information; Sagittarius takes it with him for upleveling, pondering as he goes. Mercury observes the exchange, new chapters will be written!

Saturn changes the game by leaving Sagittarius and going into his own sign Capricorn December 19 3 days before the Retrograde ends! That’s during the 8 day Rx/Direct (forward) station when Mercury appears to ‘stand still’ in the sky. There is a holding tank of information, a focus, a concentration of thought, an anchoring of ideas. With Saturn in Cap a serious tone descends. More is expected. It’s not just fun and contemplation. Things need to get done, responsibilities taken, papers signed. Saturn builds strong, expects you to exceed your past. They will help you if they can. Winter Solstice adds the Sun into Capricorn the day before Mercury turns Direct (out of Rx). Mercury instantly senses the shift and knows he needs to backup his hopes with solid evidence if possible to carry on, cross the breach, be in sync with the tidal shift.

At first he may not seem to catch on or keep up because he is in Station, standing still, 4 days before and after the turn point. He’s absorbing, assimilating, focusing, anchoring the plans. At this sacred time of Winter Solstice, the longest Nights, Mercury’s ideas and thinking patterns will be deepened, fortified. No matter how much Saturn may want Mercury on board, the plans that have been made, after much consideration, are not to be abandoned. Mercury will be holding the Sag Light until Jan 10, when he crosses the line into Capricorn to join Saturn. See more about Saturn’s sign shift

The three part cycle finishes the same day Mercury joins Saturn in Capricorn Jan 10. Mercury conjuncts Saturn Jan 12, Jupiter sextiles Pluto Jan 15! When it’s done, it’s done! Mercury, the Communicator, now out of Sag and in Capricorn, can present his ideas to Saturn in the way Saturn can understand since his sign is Capricorn! It will be up front and personal Jan 12 when they are together. Jupiter sextile Pluto wants volumes of healing, both personal, as couples and business partners. Jupiter knows when he has a tough room, yet he is amazing at telling the funny story and making them laugh anyway. He also knows when trust is an issue. Now in Scorpio, Jupiter knows about Pluto only too well. And Pluto in Capricorn is rarely fooled or made to do anything he doesn’t want to. Mercury is intrigued by seeing Jupiter at work, and may offer Jupiter some data to help his presentation, request. Mercury may offer Pluto some quick but pivotal advice, and bingo, Pluto is on board and it’s a good deal!

Mercury repeats aspects to Saturn and Uranus….

Throughout the cycle, Mercury trines Uranus three times! Mercury is the thinking process; Uranus is considered to be higher mind, how to join many souls, worldwide networks to promote both rational and etheric thought. Mercury in Sagittarius expands principles of attention and expression to intrigue Souls to gather ’round! Already the process is started by coaching by example as thoughts are shared and upleveled, hope instilled, having a steady outlook. Uranus is the Light and Sound waves that carry group thought around the world, brings R/Evolution. It invents options like the Internet, and planes, and one day we will have teleportation. Let your mind shift freely. Tune in.

Mercury does conjunct Saturn three times. The first two are in Sagittarius, but the third, however, is in Capricorn two days after the Mercury Rx cycle is complete! While in Sag, Mercury consults with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, then, because Saturn changes signs mid Rx, Mercury completes the conjunctions when Saturn is at his full power! First Mercury speculates in Sag, then after all is said and done, commits to the chosen Path in Capricorn. He works hard gathering data so choices will be informed, no time wasted. Mercury is not always serious, sometimes mischievous, but in Capricorn he focuses as it life depended on it, and sometimes it does! Blessed be.

Mercury aspecting Saturn and Uranus, triggers awareness of how precious our commitments are and how much we need freedom too. Saturn holds us together and stabilizes our communities, at times our very survival. Uranus invites innovation, change, evolution, sometimes on a large scale with far reaching effects! Networking, connection is a potent and necessary life force, sometimes uniting us internationally. Intentionally we can breathe together collectively, securing our survival in the future as well!

Sagittarius, this Mercury retrograde’s sign, is a student, a teacher, traveler of mind and body, has long term purpose in mind, great faith in the future. Confidence abounds, risks are taken and often succeed! They are super storytellers, often published!  Sagittarius will hold the compass and keep us on course. Even if they lose the compass, they were born with directional instinct. Trust it. When it all seems too much, they will tell stories of heroes and heroines and hope is restored! They speak of the achievement of our dreams, what that will look like. We are guided to make the best choices to get us there, step by step we go on. Walk the Path together.

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.

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns!

capricorn-bruce-kirkby-adventurer-goats

Though many of you have never heard of Jan 8, 1968 Capricorn Bruce Kirkby, he is well known and accomplished in his field!

Per TravelChannel.com, in the world of travel, Canadian Bruce Kirkby is a jack-of-all-trades: adventurer, guide, writer and photographer. His journeys have taken him to more than 80 countries, including the wildest and most remote corners of the planet. He has crossed Iceland by foot, traveled through Mongolia by horse, been shot at in Borneo, and been taken hostage in Ethiopia.

Bruce is a weekly travel columnist for The Globe and Mail. He is the author of 2 best-selling books, Sand Dance: By Camel Across Arabia’s Great Southern Desert (2001) and The Dolphin’s Tooth: A Decade in Search of Adventure (2007).

Bruce’s work also appears regularly in publications including The New York Times, EnRoute and Time magazine, and National Geographic selected his images to be among the best adventure photography of the decade. Previously, Bruce hosted CBC’s prime-time reality show No Opportunity Wasted, for which his mission was to help regular people overcome personal fears and accomplish the seemingly impossible.

Quite a resume!

You may have seen him and his family on the Travel Channel’s series Big Crazy Family Adventure. It follows the family as they travel from British Columbia to Ladakh, India (more than 13,000 miles), by every mode of transportation except planes.

Bruce is a dedicated family man, and backpacks with GOATS – the Capricorn animal! Amid the clatter of hooves and tiny bleats, we were under way. In the 100 mile pack trip with his 4 year old son Bodi, one of the goats he selected for the trip, the snowy white one, was named Capricorn! Each carried about 30 pounds of gear. Their lightweight fabric saddles were held in place by plastic buckles, the panniers slung using Velcro and hooks. Son’s questions? Will the goats miss home? Where will they sleep? Where will we sleep? When is snack time? Read more about this precious adventure!

Yep, their families worry, but Bruce says:  Heck, I’m trying to get the grandmothers to come on more adventures with us!

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Capricorn!

Capricorn Builders Working Smart

Building a great New Year working smart and working together!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. 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! Perfect! Time now to roll up our sleeves, join forces, build for a sustainable future! Mid degree Capricorns will find their old debris being hauled away. Overburdened, they became forgeries of their former selves. At core, they are molten steel, reformed in strength, meeting their destiny with an exceptional resolve. Some relationships will undoubtedly be fated, debts were and are made, some paid. Healing may be hard work but worth it. Some healing will be of past painful experiences, some of skin and bones. A therapist for mind and a physical therapist for body could be worth their salt. Step through the fear.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! In their office Capricorn is looking over the time sheets, the return on investment. It knows how precious our efforts are, how our cumulative work adds up. Lost time affects us all as others wait for us. It learns values from those ROI sheets, what’s real. Neptune dreams a vision for Capricorn. Sensible or not, it’s a template. Capricorn builds Neptunes’ dream, magically joining studs and artfully building in stone, a gift, a diamond forever. Might be a temple, an archway through the garden, a divine wall to keep us safe, dividing local from wild, a set of keys for your new home!

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Capricorn’s planet is Saturn, and they are so unlike Uranus, Aquarius. Saturn was Uranus’ son, and Saturn was the bad boy – killed his Father! Usually we think of Uranus as the heretic, perhaps unkempt, unruly unpredictable. The amazing part of the story is: The period in which Cronus [Saturn] ruled was called the Golden Age, as the people of the time had no need for laws or rules; everyone did the right thing, and immorality was absent. Capricorn in today’s astrology is still the one in charge. Uranus is the inventor, networker, internet, flight, electronics expert! Capricorn is earth; Uranus rules the heavens, and in Aries is fiery, challenging every moment! Uranus leads Capricorn the scientist into unexplored realms, in the company of super leaders. Capricorn keeps their feet on the ground, incorporating extraordinary concepts into daily life!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Traditional business and a good marriage are just right for most Capricorns. They are willing to work. Chiron in Pisces helps them see the inner workings of things, understand more subtle relationship structures, let go when necessary. Chiron calls on them to heal from deep past wounds, to teach what they learned. Chiron in Neptune principles may be idealized, but Capricorn expertly converts them to useful ways of living anyone can do while still keeping them magical!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Capricorn is Saturn’s sign, but Sagittarius is one of those quite different neighboring signs. Saturn and Capricorn are Earth. Sagittarius is easily sidetracked fire. Sag is far vision personified while Saturn has a steady unblinking here and now focus! Of course, if Sagittarius shows Capricorn the easiest path, and promises a bonus, who wouldn’t keep that focus?! Saturn in Sagittarius shows that even having fun can BE the business! Two for the price of one! Paid to play! Sag is always looking out ahead. Early course corrections can really pay off. Capricorn holds Sagittarius accountable for his grand ideas, and asks him to stick around until the project is well established.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Capricorn is not seduced by cute or merely pretty; intelligence makes a difference. They aren’t as social. Your words need to carry weight. They are not so impressed by who you know, as they are by who you introduce them too. If you represent them successfully in court they are happy to pay. Capricorns love classic art, historical documents, structures by adept artisans. Jupiter can artfully expand Capricorn’s business, and may have just the right ways of making suggestions. Capricorn needs to listen carefully and kindly because Jupiter in Libra can have good intentions and excellent advice. Jupiter in Libra has a finely tuned sense of balance, perspectives that incorporate the best of both sides. Jupiter may be a bit overblown at times in his enthusiasm, but look at the backbone of what they are saying! That’s your framework to start from!

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns! May your new year be productive and rewarding in every way!


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Capricorn, the Winter Magicians!

Capricorn the Mountain Goat at home in the rocks!

Capricorns, Goats, are devilishly and delightfully capricious. As youngsters, tails up, they run and leap and play at full tilt along the rock tops! They are impulsive and make unpredictable zig zag turns and twists in mid air! If you aren’t watching, it could seem devious when they sneak up on you! They are not afraid of mingling, nor easily led. They have a keen sense for BS, and will go contrary if there is a problem with morality.

Though generally obedient children and law abiding adults, there is an inbred independence, a need to be free to lead! As leaders they are free! Walking sure footedly, wherever footing is available, takes them places others never go. No wonder at times they seem to be ‘above’ us, aloof, maybe even intimidating.

With their high intelligence, command and leadership are natural. And they can back it up! They can lower their goat horns and butt their way through difficult obstacles. They can push forward past or chase off competitors and predators, defend their own! They may be exhausted, get down on their knees from time to time, but hard work is something they can do. It carries them through.

Winter Magicians! They are keen survivors that can thrive in sparse conditions, hostile or negligent situations. They make do with what is there, get through hard times. They have courage born of necessity. Perseverance and stamina are incredible, bringing successes beyond their humble beginnings. Yet, at times, remembrances and fear of falling back may bring seeming greed. Really it is their reaction to fear of starvation.

Loyal. Parents and family are important, whether their parents, particularly their Father, was there for them or for some reason couldn’t be. Many vow to be the best parents they can be, knowing what loss feels like. Being overprotective or demanding with rigid rules, implies to the child that there is much to be feared or that your child is, will not be capable, so go a little easier. Let them make a few errors and learn how to recover – another good old fashioned life skill. No shame or embarrassment necessary for an honest effort. Your children will understand the goodness of discipline, how being given responsibilities is a trust.

Cappies are generally healthy, even more so as they get older! Skeleton and bones, the knees, joints, teeth, skin, nails and scalp are your points of concern. Arthritis, rheumatism, tooth decay, crooked teeth and skin problems may plague you. Talk with vibrant experts excited about their specialty, who keep up in their field and aren’t afraid to explore alternative possibilities! See a sports doctor who is interested in more than day to day surviving and maintenance at a tolerable level! See someone who wants your above average, even exceptional health no matter what age you are! Look for experts that want to heal the cause and never have to see you again! LOL!

Capricorn works can be earth sciences and discovery, is the revered CEO, are well known stone mason artisans and remarkable builders. Working with the aged, retirement services, senior communities. Law and law enforcement. Rock and ice climbers, winter sports champions! Historical preservation, environmentalists that use natural primitive ways, low cost utilities, sustainability.

Interesting that the neighboring signs, Sagittarius and Capricorn both have 1/2 and 1/2 symbols. Sagittarius is the Centaur, half human, half horse. Capricorn is the Seagoat, half goat, half fish. Since ancient times, Capricorn was also associated with Mephistopheles, a demon featured in German folklore. And at Christmas, Capricorn’s time, we have Krampus, who scares away evil winter ghosts. He is half goat (Capricorn), half demon. These signs belong to two or more dimensions, both often quite psychic. Capricorn is a most complex sign, perhaps even the most complicated sign. It takes a special person to befriend a Capricorn or be befriended by one.

Time comes when age is an honor with wisdom and a softening. We do what we can. We do our best at the time. Super professionalism, a career, mentoring, melts into time for ourselves perhaps. A staunch by the book religion may become more personally intuitive. Black and white patterns with squares are still there, but it becomes an inner expression, a merger of the art of an adept and motivation for the engine of life.

There are so many famous Capricorns in all walks of life! Here are just a very few: Michelle Obama, Justin Trudeau, Kate Middleton, Khalil Gibran, Elvis Presley, Kevin Costner, Stephen Hawking and Nostradamus!

Blessed be! See you on the mountain!

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius Britney Spears - 4 Planets in Sag: Sun, Uranus, Mercury, Neptune

FOUR planets in Sagittarius – Uranus, Mercury, Sun, Neptune! December 2, 1981 Britney Spears has got that friendly Sagittarian smile! She cares about the world. She sings little girl to vixen. Music is her game. See her chart!

She started as a childstar, with continued successes until 2007/8. Drugs, discordancy, divorce, had their toll and she come under the conservatorship of her father (Saturn conjunct Pluto in Libra), lost custody of her sons, and shaved her hair off! Hard times. Forbes June 2010: ‘Not long ago, most of the entertainment world had written Britney Spears off as a celebrity flameout. But over the last year Spears logged the fifth highest-grossing tour in the world, bringing in $130 million in gross box office receipts by playing 98 dates. High-profile endorsement deals with Elizabeth Arden and Candies’ prove that the public expects Spears to stay in the spotlight for good.’

Since then, a true Sagittarian, she has come back! Sagittarians are noted for their resiliency, optimism, faith, hope, getting beyond limitations, being clean. She’s been down, she’s been up. As Victoria Pavlova says, ‘no matter how bad the breakdown, there’s always a way up.’ Plus, besides being a wealth factor, Jupiter in Scorpio specializes in resurrection, is charismatic, great for comebacks!

Britney has won award after award, made glamorous record breaking stats, stunning financial successes, has one of those Hollywood stars in the sidewalk. In 2013 she began the four-year residency show, Britney: Piece of Me, at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. In 2016, Spears released her ninth studio album, Glory.

She was inspired by many, her top three being Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Whitney Houston. Huge stars. She in turn has inspired artists worldwide, with songs now written about her! She has inspired Gwyneth Paltrow’s acting, Trinidadian singer Nicki Minaj, singer, songwriter Lana Del Rey, triple Scorpio Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, and on and on! At current time, she’s only 34/turning 35 shortly!

Alongside all that Sagittarian, Britney is strongly Aquarian! Controversial. Her Sun sextiles her Aquarian Moon. Her Mercury is conjunct the Aquarian planet Uranus! She’s brilliant, vivid, shocking, and definitely not the girl nextdoor! The world wasn’t quite ready for the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards aired live on August 28. That ceremony is best remembered for ‘Madonna’ kissing ‘Britney Spears’ and Christina Aguilera during the show’s opening performance! The cameras did a quick cut to Britney’s then boyfriend Justin Timberlake. You can imagine….

That same strong Aquarian nature also gives her a strongly philanthropic bent. Britney founded The Britney Spears Foundation to help children in need. The Foundation also supported the annual Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts. In April 2002, they made a grant of $1 million to the Twin Towers Fund to support the children of uniformed service heroes affected by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. She has done numerous benefit concerts and donations – for AIDS, Katrina, Music Rising, the St. Bernard Project, Madonna’s Kabbalah-based Spirituality for Kids, cancer charity Gilda’s Club Worldwide, Promises Foundation, United Way and more. She has contributed a good share.

Britney was raised a church going Southern Baptist. Well that all changed when her mentor Madonna came along. They studied the Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism. Hinduism has been part of her path too. It’s possible that Spears took Hinduism quite seriously at one stage, reportedly attending “reincarnation sessions” with a Hindu psychic. And she has had between times, no particular faith at all. Sagittarians are always explorers, seekers.

Here’s the latest! Britney debuted the new music video for her sexy single, “Slumber Party” at midnight on Friday, Nov 18 and it didn’t disappoint.

2016-17 Celestial Highlights!

Orion Constellation Hunter Belt Celestial Bridge Mintaka

Orion is now our evening constellation rising in the East November & December. Its bright stars are Betelgeuse, and Rigel. The Aymara of Bolivia call the belt the Celestial Bridge. The top star is Mintaka, special because it sits almost directly astride the celestial equator – the projection of Earth’s equator onto the stellar sphere. From all over the world, Mintaka rises due east and sets due west, and remains in the sky for almost exactly 12 hours. When it shines at zenith (straight overhead), then you’re at the equator, the meeting place of the northern and southern skies. Thank you, Bruce McClure at EarthSky!

Sagittarius 2016/17 TimeLine!

October 23 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that will be the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto is ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! Next in line is Saturn trine Uranus Dec 24, Christmas Eve! The Christmas Eve aspect, Saturn trine Uranus, is nominally astrologically positive, calming, but has a serious tone nonetheless. That aspect leads a set of four aspects in a week that finishes up 2016! It will be a complex and exciting holiday season!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. We are now in a period of adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Do your best with these six aspects. 2017 depends on it. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. 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! Perfect! Mid degree Sagittarians will be Pluto’s semisextile next door neighbor. Sagittarius precedes Capricorn, establishing the reason for all of Capricorn’s hard work. Current new perspectives, a new president, will change investment strategies, where you decide to live, how the world sits with the land Sagittarius hikes, rides or travels too. It’s time to come out of Scorpio/Pluto shadow land. Sagittarius will keep us looking up, out and beyond. There are benefits and consequences to be considered. Sagittarius is experienced in choosing wisely at the fork in the road. They have a great time and against odds, live to tell the story!

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Sagittarius is the rainbow arc, arrow in the air, sign. It rises above, and can often choose where it lands. Focus is key. Neptune has seen many rainbows at sea, in the foam on a wave. They have a dream, and Sagittarius can carry it forward, spread the message. There are confused moments when Pisces isn’t sure, lost even, when Sagittarius is scattered, but Neptune is super sensitive, and Sag stands tall to see further ahead. Even if they choose the ‘wrong’ Path, somehow it works out anyway to everyone’s surprise and happiness with unexpected benefits to boot! If Sag has become opinionated, judgemental, Neptune can show a more gentle compassionate side to things.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Sagittarius the roamer falls into step easily having met many unusual Beings. And no one is unhappy when either of them leaves. It’s a given. Uranus in Aries is a bit devil may care, even cavalier at times. If Sagittarius is bold and blunt, offends, it may be a bit crazy for awhile. If Sagittarius puts a positive spin on the over the top strange Uranian ideas or manner, we may have inventions sooner than later. Sag is a natural born educator. People trust them, and Sag has faith in that invention when no one else does. Can be a great team!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. It’s not always easy for a Sagittarian to do traditional business or marriage. But they do understand ethics of committing to a marriage. The right nomadic compatriot, or a partner who is happy to be home base, works. If Chiron invites Sag to a cruise business coupled with imports/exports, super! You can travel the world at home by owning the local beachside bed & breakfast or professoring at a coastal university with students from all over the world! Religious studies, anthropology, anything international has the scope that keeps you humming. It may be time for you to let go of confusion and step up to the plate!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Those of you with your natal Saturn in those degrees of Sagittarius will be having your SATURN RETURNS! Saturn retrogrades over 21 to 27 degrees, so you with Saturn in those degrees will have a three time pass over your Saturn. Some people skip right through their Saturn Returns, others moan and groan, working hard to sort out their lives, it crimping their style for awhile. In Sagittarius it will concern professional matters, life Path choices, education, where to live, travel, religious and spiritual matters, securing your Faith, judgements of all kinds – for and against. Truth and trust will figure in keenly, ethics of blogs and storytelling, publishing. Who you will go with can seem a fateful decision. Take good care of yourself. Own the confidence you have earned, you have already come a long way.

Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Let that Sagittarian smile come through to ease the way! Knees may suffer from hard long Sag treks, but if you are lucky you may lose some weight around your hips! Be kind to your liver – eat healthy, get regular exercise, drink little alcohol. 

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Sagittarius wouldn’t have it any other way! Next! Libra loves cross cultural and Jupiter is Sag’s own planet. They have both traveled and could exchange notes, like this could just go on forever. They could travel together; both may support foreign exchange students. They may even have mutual friends and business connections at great distances! Libra is often beautiful, graceful, has superb balance, and Sag has an open friendly style, great at sports! Libra isn’t usually a gamer or better, but with Jupiter in its sign, and a Sagittarian hanging about, a few chances may be taken and some lotto tickets bought and the race won! Oh, and good luck at the dog show!

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians! May your new year be blessed in every way!

 


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Sagittarius, PathFinder!

Sagittarius – Big dogs, spirited horses, magnificent elephants, mighty moose, far traveling camels, far seeing giraffes!

Sagittarians sport infectious smiles and laughter, a twinkle in their eyes! The verve of one like December 10, 1830 Emily Dickinson: “To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.” Sagittarians have a indomitable vivacious Spirit! When the peddler comes to town, the children merrily follow, skipping and playing! Games will be played. Parents will buy them toys! The entertainment begins and goes long into the night time around the fire, wonderful stories to be told, news to be shared! Some may even follow the peddler out of town, off on an adventure that lasts a lifetime!

Chiron the healing and teaching centaur – half human, half horse, tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his charges were non less than Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules. Due to Chiron’s accidental wound, and immortality, he suffered greatly, learned about healing in great depth. Story has it as a baby, Aesculapius was given to centaur Chiron, a strange yet wise creature, half-human half-horse, who was famous for his skills in medicine. Chiron brought up Aesculapius and became his mentor. Aesculapius became the god of medicine, the one with the serpent on his Staff.

Whether it is a walking staff or a physician’s staff, it signifies being able to find your way, to live. It points direction, is a Pathfinder, a Seer. It looks far and wide ahead with uncanny vision, makes wise choices. Optimism is natural, a calculated gamble is engaged, and lucky, often wins. A human perspective per Mark Twain 11.30.1835: Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child’s loss of a doll and a king’s loss of a crown are events of the same size. The height and width of Sag vision gives them a greater range of comparison, seeing things side by side that others don’t see at all. Philosophers and Oracles.

The centaurian horse, gives a robust strength, and the ability to travel far and more safely. Having horses was considered a turning point in ancient civilizations. In Africa or India that may be a powerful elephant that can build villages. If you are a hiker it may be your big smart dog protector, its loyalty a special factor! Sagittarians have such a broad experience from their travels, they have a meaningful wisdom.

When Sagittarians choose their work, they focus like a laser! Laziness, procrastination fall away as they become one pointed and don’t falter. They are an inspiration to others who then follow them! When they choose a moral path, a spiritual point of view, they need to be kind. The weakness can be to judge, be self righteous, narrow minded. As judges in courts, they are often famed for their fairness and inclusive solutions.

Sagittarians are not always the marrying type. They need to be able to move around. A travel business, import/export, ministering over a territory, overseas missions, teaching internationally, maybe the Peace Corps, are potentials. They are always hungry to learn more, from everyday basics to spiritual linguistics! Their partner needs to be flexible, and to keep up. Traveling Sagittarians can often live with little to no finances. You need to be comfortable with that, and be able to be uncomfortable at times. Most Sagittarians are fabulously healthy. If there is trouble, hips/sciatica, liver & weight are likely involved. But if you aren’t a Sag, it’s another story. If you have the travelers’ bed and breakfast, a chain of hotels, and travelers come to you, you may be wealthy! Then you can travel in style wherever and whenever you want!

When they do choose a home, it may have a grand view, large, very large windows. A high ceiling is likely, skylights. A broad deck, balcony would do. Casual comfort and nature tones. A meeting space and guest rooms for visiting friends. ThanksGiving is their convivial time of year, and their constellation is also called the Teacup! Don’t be surprised to see trunks and magical covered baskets, art and art pieces collected from all over the world. A library covering the entire wall. Landscaping that takes care of itself, or a ranch with the finest race horses and great dogs!

It’s exhilarating to learn, to travel the world, survive, be inspired! Eyeglasses, binoculars, zoom lenses, telescopes all extend our vision! Take pictures, record videos, write books and blogs, publish the novel you wrote while you journeyed! BE the Guide! Share your savoir faire.

I feel that something’s coming, and it’s not just in the wind.
It’s more than just tomorrow, it’s more than where we’ve been,
It offers me a promise, it’s telling me “Begin”,
I know we’re needing something worth believing in.

— Sagittarian singer Harry Chapin  (Born December 7, 1942)

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius horse lovers, son and mother, the Armstrongs, rescue foal named Texas at Shingletown CA.

A lot of Sagittarians love horses. Travis Armstrong works with Texas, a rescued foal, in Shingletown, California. His mother, Palomino Armstrong, rescues orphaned foals and raises them in her house. Due to the need for regular feedings, Palomino hardly sleeps—and if she does, she has a bed set up in the horse nursery.

Thank you for all your teachings. Stand tall!
