Aries 2019 Celestial HighLights

Aries ~ It’s Alpha Time!

Aries 2019 Bicycles Women Harper's Weekly 1868 Historic Wheels of Change

In the late 1800s women forayed into the world of bicycles, and into a new world!

In Alpha-Omega thinking, Alpha is the beginning! In Alpha dog thinking, it is undisputed leadership! One might be naive, inexperienced, innocent, wide-eyed with discovery and anticipation. Alpha power brooks no fear, expects instant obedience, no failure, true courage.

Spirited! It’s from the collective experience of celebrating leaders who have ‘risen’ from the dead, to the unique personal experience of our Kundalini awakening! There can be technically excellent leaders, supercharged athletes, or the ones who win the Spirit Award. All hold a vital place on the team.

1st responders have another form of zoomies! Aries weren’t born to sit…and wait… Walking meditations are best. They are firey on-their-feet adventurers, great come and go consultants with the latest information. Their clean senses serve them well to be in the right place at the right time and do the right thing. They ‘get’ the situation instantly and save us from the dragons!

‘First’ is the word! Without a thought Aries takes on what’s never been done before, seems natural to them, and often succeed. The time has come and whether they plant the seeds or do the deed, yippee! We’re up and running, surprised, pleased. If one person can take the chance, surely we can carry on for them, making their effort count.

Aries 2019 Sunrise Wildflowers Monument Valley by Lars Leber!Aries is THE Sunrise sign! The 0° Aries, first degree of the first sign, place in a natural, elemental astrology wheel. It is the Ascendant or Rising Sign. That is the Alpha position in any chart, no matter what sign it faced into when you were born. It is the Sunrise position, the place where the Sun ascends out of darkness, out of the Dreamtime! It is a fresh start every single day no matter what the weather. We are innovative, refreshed with clear new ideas! As Spring Equinox it symbolizes a balance point between spring and fall, sunrise and sunset, our self and others.

Above is the stunning Wildflowers at Sunrise – Monument Valley, Arizona by photographer Lars Leber. Order one, see it in big beauty at his site!

Besides being of the day’s fiery golden beginning, Aries colors are red and white. Red is for taking action, the blood of the lamb, the sacrifices we make to bring change, for courage to fight a good fight. White is for purity, to always be true in Spirit. Red and a bit of gold and white is for those orange California poppies, the sacred cups of Spring dew. Red and white is the sweetest of pinks like the Dorset poppies, the gentle loving version of red. Throw in a bit of blue with the red and you’ve got the lavenders and purples so common to many precious medicinal herbs.

Where we have Aries in our charts, is where our brain functions at top speed! Mars, the Aries planet, is where we take action, and our Ascendant/Rising Sign, first house, take action in the flavor of our signs there. Aries has to do with our head. Sometimes we bump it, other times, with quick reflexes, we duck the low hanging tree limb just in time. Many an Aries has a renowned collection of headgear, from remarkable hats, headbands, assorted caps, visors, helmets, headlamps. Their hair may be short and sleek or tied up to fit their fast lifestyle. It’s a heady life and they can have great determination, a force to be reckoned with!

While their brain rarely gets tired, their body might, but it’s hard to get them to slow down or stop. They prefer to refuel en route. Or they need frequent brisk rowdy exercise to keep that amazing brain pumped up to top flight awareness! Aries are often race winners, sprinters more than marathoners. Bicycling holds strong with them. It’s independent and non polluting. Aries are terrific mechanics when emergency repairs are needed whether it is their bike or another vehicle. High performance bars and drinks and minimal gear let them fly at top speed! Personal and planetary energy sourcing is important to them.

Historically, you might enjoy National Geographic‘s Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way). It tells the riveting story of how the two-wheel wonder pedaled forward the emancipation of women in late-nineteenth-century America and radically redefined the normative conventions of femininity. Aries would be thrilled to hear this. Independence is one of their keywords! And, LOL, it often gets us in trouble, as this old quote shows: “The bicycle is the devil’s advance agent morally and physically in thousands of instances.” Read more at Maria Popova’s Wheels of Change!

Romance is intense, exciting, swept-off-your-feet fast. Compatibility is necessary for a long lasting union. Ironically, compatibility can be boring pretty quickly. Aries do love challenges, but patience is an entirely different matter. Better to work on the same challenge together than on each other. Tempers and tantrums can happen. Aries get distracted easily as a new opportunity calls to them, person or project. Independent as they are, like Sagittarius and Aquarius, some never marry. You may be heartbroken, disappointed. But how could you help it? They are superb humans, specimens.

Encounters with these Beings are uplifting to many. They save your life. You vow to help others too. They wake you up with new valuable ideas. You take up the cause! They have a brilliant radiance. You didn’t know life could be so vibrant! They don’t think a thing of being physical, it’s natural. Suddenly you realize you could be too and you’re off to the gym, on a walk or racing up a hill! Their instincts are effortlessly phenomenal! Without even thinking, you learn to trust yours. And that smile! They knock you out. They laugh, grin impishly, tease you a bit. Too sweet not to think that over, but not for long. Next thing you know, you are smiling too.

That’s Alpha.

Aries 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Aries 2019 Timeline!

March

20  Happy Aries & Spring Equinox! Full SuperMoon!
28  Mercury Direct!!

April

5    New Moon
19  AstroLogica Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon
20  Happy Taurus!

Aries Overview of Year to Come!

The unusual 2019 Aries claim to fame is 3 lunar events, TWO Full Moons! The first is the March 20 Spring Equinox Full Worm Moon at 0°, the second is the April 19 AstroLogical Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon at 29° Aries! The beginning and end! What a powerful start for our first sign of the Zodiac! Chiron is really feeling the excitement of being in his new sign Aries! He and Uranus are settling in and getting used to their new signs Aries and Taurus!

Mercury Retrograde turns Direct, forward, March 28! Time then to put the finishing touches on changes that have come up.

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

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

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

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

Rights fighter Aries, ever sensitive and reactive to changes of content, notices the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. There is a more serious note, even an urgency. Education and immigration become more important than ever. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown!

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the exact 34 year conjunction with Pluto.

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

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs most of the Aries new year! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Aries’s coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and Feb 15, 2020 – at Valentine’s time! See more about Chiron/Uranus  

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.


Outer Planet Transits with Aries 2019 – March 2020!

St Patrick's Day Good Luck Shamrocks!

May good luck be with you wherever you go and your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow!

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

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

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

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

In Aries’ year, Pluto is moving from 20 to 24 degrees. Capricorn squares Aries, and Pluto’s MO is just about opposite, so it is challenging for Aries. Pluto is deep and internal, protective, the Underworld. Aries is protective, a rights fighter, but on the ground, here and now, face to face! Pluto will use money, Aries is hands on, spiritedly will use fists if necessary, nevermind the size of the adversary! They have tons of courage and surprise often takes the day! No one expected that! Pluto in Capricorn will advocate psychology, going around to the back door, taking you to jail if things get out of hand. Not that they don’t admire you. They are often police and want to keep the peace and prevent further ado. Aries is there to show them that there are times you just have to take responsibility right now and sort the rest out later. Pluto may work with a lingering situation for years, while an Aries first responder saves your life in a second! We are grateful for both. They want the same things, their methods and timing are just very different. Talk it out and see where you each can do your best together.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces! He is a water planet in the last water sign, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Aries is Neptune’s sign’s neighboring sign! As Neptune ends the zodiac, Aries/Mars begin the next round! Aries is so inspired he wants the Neptune/Pisces dream to come true right now! Neptune can be ponderous or sweep the island clean! Aries is generally slim and trim, spontaneously fast on his feet and pushes to find ways to carry the vision to new places, begin anew! New better tools and ways are thrilling to Neptune as his dreams come true much faster than expected! A champion advocate is now leading the pack!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, will cover 0 to 6 Taurus! March 6, 2019 Uranus entered Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. For some it either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Aries is delighted with the changes afoot, maybe ecological since Taurus rules Mother Earth and Uranus is evolutionary. Aries loves new and is cheering Uranus on! Again, there are different methods. In Taurus, at times, there may be a lay-down-and-wait approach, a lengthy pondering of possibilities. Aries has got the fiery cattle prod out for just such occasions! He dances around, takes you to see what’s been done, and how. Then oddly, Uranus, a lightning quick planet, sits again with the matter, thoroughly making considerations. But his ideas are on the mark, so some are willing to make the wait. Aries is still scouting the surroundings, finding more solutions and certainly won’t always wait. Some things just have to be put in place and tried. It will be a bit of a push/pull. Taurus sometimes lacks self-confidence, just has a slower pace, but is thankful nonetheless for successes. Taurus helps Aries ground, be centered while in action. Taurus is aware of natural cycles, breath and motion. Aries may inspire Taurus, and Taurus gains momentum. But, soon, Aries moves on to the next option, leaving Uranus to maintain and modify to the next generations!

CHIRON went into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. What a fabulous time for Aries! Chiron will heal him, teach him & show him how to teach, maybe get him into a business, maybe bring him a mate! He and Chiron could become partners in a new venture! Chiron in Aries wants you to have a better life right now! Right now is exactly Aries’ pace! Chiron commiserates all too well since he also carries a wound that won’t heal. Many Aries understand because many of them have had an accidental injury of some kind along the way, physical or a broken heart. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for a push from Aries. Aries inspires, get us going into brave new arenas! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. So many matters need uplifting, many people need a boost in their courage, to know that someone is taking point and they can gather, have hope! Tremendous healing is needed. Most of all how to heal these matters is needed. Aries has refreshing ideas worth standing up for! Please constantly hold our brave healers in the Light.

Chiron will cover the very earliest degrees, 1 to almost 6°, of Aries this year. It will activate any factors you have in or very close to those degrees. See more

Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. See more The last 10 years, they connected in Pisces and Aries. Now there will be added flavor as Uranus enters Taurus, first a shift in the foundation, then, in time, a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching and discoveries will be inspiring, especially about how our minds work. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! Things are a lot different than they were 51 years ago!

SATURN builds from 13 to 29 Capricorn.

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


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 27 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through February 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

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

A Saturn Return in Capricorn can be a wee challenge for an Aries! Aries knows that rules were made to be broken, as much as Saturn/Capricorn knows they must be enforced, integrity intact! Aries is a creative inspiring action oriented, try-it-out-and-see sign! Law and order with some leniency makes sense. Otherwise we would all be the same, discoveries never made. Both are needed. Saturn can also make a safe place and time for Aries to explore. However, there are times when spontaneous action just is, just happens. It is the state of zero hindrance that makes the ultimate invention possible! Be wise and also let life happen. Aries doesn’t always think in terms of, oh God, I’m taking a chance. They simply respond to the spark! And there are times it’s a good darn thing they do! Yep. They do make mistakes, but 99 point, they have profound instincts. Plus, they recover quickly!

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

Saturn/Capricorn are earth to Aries Fire! Earth can put fire out or be the support for it, like for a campfire. Capricorn has things to do in a timely fashion and cherishes Aries workers. Aries is smart, fast, unafraid, and a great leader! Capricorn inspires Aries to get meaningful work done, build lifesaving structures, like after a disaster. Aries points out ways things can be done better. Capricorn makes sure there is a secure foundation. Cap needs to ask, let Aries know the deadlines, then get out of his way. No hovering. Check ins, yes. Aries is tough and Capricorns get more confidence seeing how Aries throw themselves into a job. Put your Aries mates on the new jobs, or they will get bored and find one themselves. Their phenomenal work gets them noticed, often have a rep and are in demand. You might just change roles, let them be the boss, and go with them! And you better keep up!

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 22 Capricorn. Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2.

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

Jupiter in Sag, double fire, can be fun as all get out for fiery Aries! What one doesn’t think of the other does. Jupiter has the luck, Aries is a daredevil and they get away with it. They take bets and win! Fast cars, fast horses, surfing anywhere! They travel swiftly, move on quickly. They separate happily, meet up later somewhere else or not. Both are independent. If they take up a cause together, Jupiter is holding meetings ana passing out pamphlets or handbills. Mars is out setting up the stage, gathering equipment from the locals. They can speak separately or team speak, or sponsor a speaker to be proud of! Jupiter may want to publish or stop at the University, but Aries is likely off on another venture, biking cross country, at an athletic program at a gym or starting another resort!

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

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, and Aries may quickly size up the scene and keep right on going. There may be a temporary alliance if Aries figures he needs a little structure for a while. Keep a loose rein. Share the info, no smothering with expectations ‘for his own good.’ Let Aries find his own way. Aries is a quick learner, maybe faster than you can deliver. Don’t be confused. Keep on giving as you can. If he chooses to be with you, remember he made that choice and it’s an honor. Be yourself and don’t be rushed. Aries may be looking to start a business and sees you have some of that expertise. S/he may be quite grateful for what you share, even when he is fidgety. Take frequent breaks outside if possible. When you are speaking, keep it tight and to the point. When they leave, it’s done. They aren’t always up for lengthy discussions afterwards. Trust that they got what they needed. If it is a personal relationship, that may or may not work for you. Be clear about your own needs. Let go if that’s best. Admire that good looking person from afar and wish them Godspeed. If it works well, how blessed!

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

If your Jupiter is in 14 Sag to 22 Capricorn, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, or could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Dear Aries! Blessed be in your new year!

Sagittarius 2018 Celestial HighLights 

Sagittarius ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow!

Sagittarius Rainbow DNA Evolution

Sagittarius is always looking to the future, from within to all of the Universe!

Instead of the arrow’s arc I always think of the rainbow arc, the rays of Light that always give us delight and hope for the future, that pot of gold! In human terms I think of the Soul’s connections, the strands of Light that pulse through our bodies, the myriads of connections from human to human. Some we see, others are part of our DNA, some are subtle mystical Light grids that bind our fibers within, that in turn extend and are the collective DNA of all humanity.

These structures weave our evolution simultaneously at all levels with all Beings throughout time. In the earliest days, when we were wanderers following game and gathering foods, travel was essential to life. Carrying the fiery coals, Light, from camp to camp was vital. Today we think of travel as a luxury, a trip for relaxation, fun, to see the sights, meet new kinds of people. The Light is in our hearts as we share and discover. Our smiles light the way. Light and knowledge travel to far reaches.

Some of that Light stays, is gathered, in various knowledge centers, villages, great cities, universities, to small private groups who need to stay safe. It becomes its own magnet bringing people from all over to partake. They will take it home to their own people, adapt it to local use. Evolution is in play in leaps and bounds. The first person in a family to go to school, to get a degree, is so precious. More will follow.

Sagittarius is a tribe of Light Leaders. Even if they don’t know it. Some are just trying to survive, some think they are just going surfing, others want to change the world! It’s a big place and a lot is happening as new concepts spring whole from collective knowledge. Each level begets the next, makes it possible. We stabilize at one level, then some fool wants more, LOL! It’s 100% creative, the life force full of vitality! The new and unknown or unexpected is happening right before your eyes!

Sagittarians are rampant story tellers! They can be the scientist telling us of developments, the novelist in a state of unbridled imagination, the campfire ghost story, the person at the pulpit, the entertaining teacher waking up his students! One way or the other it’s a cosmic gotcha! People can’t help but follow. They want to see what’s next! Sometimes it all involves proposals, projects, missions! The scientist and novelists both want a betterment of some sort. It’s either data that suggests the best track, or the novelist cloaking the grand idea in fancy wrap. Gets you thinking. You start living the story in your own mind. You might find yourself coaching the crew, showing people how. You might be the roadside evangelist like the Buddha, on a mission to the ‘uninformed,’ or rebuilding the lands in a starving country. The spiritual stories help you mend your morality, your life or the lives of others.

Sagittarians can be carefree, careless or caring. There are lifetimes when we need to take time out. Sag is the active version of that, versus Pisces taking silence and meditation. Sometimes play is the balance between freedom and boredom. If you are learning to play, make no apology. It’s as important a skill as any other. Being pinned to a map is a form of suffocation. Too much responsibility leaves us tired and our beautiful open mind collapses. Walk away before that happens. There are perfect stops along the road of life, and perfect times to go on. Crazy as it may seem, you will undoubtedly take us where we need to go just the same, no matter how you are thinking at the time. Your natural instinct is working just fine. Trust.

I have a deep regard for the Soul of Hawaiian Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole. We don’t have his birthtime, so we don’t know the whole of his astrology chart. He was a Cancer with Moon likely in Scorpio conjunct Neptune. Venus trined that Neptune and Moon. He certainly was a well loved Soul Traveler with a beautiful Spirit. Please breathe deeply and listen… Somewhere Over the Rainbow

This is the luckiest year for Sagittarius since his own planet Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! It started Nov 8, goes through Dec 2, 2019. Happens every 11 to 12 years! If you have had troubles, this is a good year to pick up the pieces, make a new plan. If troubles come, know that good things will come through it, though it may seem pretty dark at times. This year, don’t let things keep you down. Seek the meaning and move on. As possible, live it full and well with gusto!

Sagittarius 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Sagittarius 2018 Comet 46P Wirtanen Fazekas

Skychart by Andrew Fazekas, the Night Sky Guy

December 12: Comet Encounter! 

The 46P/Wirtanen Comet may brighten enough in December to be spotted easily with the unaided eye. If it does attain naked-eye visibility, it will be the brightest comet seen from the Northern Hemisphere in more than five years. The icy interloper will reach perihelion—its closest approach to the sun—on December 12 and will be traveling through the bright winter constellation Taurus, the bull. Remember, it will be a dot rather than a line when you see it, so look carefully!

Sagittarius Overview of Year to Come!

As said above, this is the luckiest year for Sagittarius since his own planet Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! It started Nov 8, goes through Dec 2, 2019. Happens every 11 to 12 years! If you have had troubles, this is a good year to pick up the pieces, make a new plan. If troubles come, know that good things will come through it, though it may seem pretty dark at times. This year, don’t let things keep you down. Seek the meaning and move on. As possible, live it full and well with gusto!

Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, entering Sagittarius was the last of a 10 day series of events started when
 Pluto crossed the Golden Ecliptic Oct 30! Those events set the die for Sagittarius this year 2018/19. These events occurred during Venus Retrograde that was followed back to back with Mercury Retrograde Nov 16! See Venus/Mercury Rx! Sag is the sign of purpose and planning. It will be up to you Sagittarians to be our PathFinders and Guides, to keep us on track in the important times to come. It’s important for us to get a good start, to set the course well.

Further, the Ecliptic event links with the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury! Mercury crosses the face of the Sun for hours! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032. Only a few days later, Nov 19, Jupiter conjuncts the GALACTIC CENTER! Though it is only on a 12 year cycle, they are potent as sister aspects, essentially happening concurrently!

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun he will be empowered by solar light, will express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Jupiter puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor, Jupiter is the, in this case, galactic traveler!

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

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

Late in 2019, Dec 2, Jupiter moves into Capricorn! Jupiter will speed Capricorn up! They are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential and offers encouragement. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive!

Sagittarius’s year starts while Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius, so there are changes of directions from the get go! Sag is always curious to see what’s what, and these are, after all, Sag kinds of changes! Shifts of direction are second nature to him, so it’s a sporting chance to see how it goes! Bets are made. If possible, maybe wait until Mercury goes direct Dec 6 before moving, going into escrow, making job changes, signing up for an important travel tour, signing important papers. Keep tabs on receipts and contracts.

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those are the aspects just before the Nov 11, 2019 eleven, eleven Transit of Mercury and Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!
 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Sagittarius’s coming year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Sagittarius 2018 – December 2019!

Sagittarius 2018 Brown Sugar Surfcamp Bali Woman Surfing

Brown Sugar Surfcamp in Bali – Medewi Indonesia. One happy person said: Thanks for two unforgettable weeks with Beach-BBQ, sightseeing, good food and nice people. And by the way – we learned how to surf! Take care and keep… 

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Chiron orbits every 51 years; Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet right…on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one ‘sees’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn. But this year it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! This is a long term aspect that precedes our Sun’s sign change into Sagittarius by only 23 days! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris will be burned away, be having a fiery bath of Light, cleared to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers will increase exponentially! He will give that very energy to Sun and the Light itself will be more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for Sagittarius! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio, will be cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. Neither Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested them.

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

Capricorn is a sign ahead of Sagittarius. Pluto rules Scorpio, the sign behind. Sagittarius always has big ideas that are generally far seeing and quite lucky! Good stock to invest in as an initial public offering! Capricorn knocks things down to size and priorities while Pluto gets the building materials at the right price. If Cap doesn’t come along, Sag will go find greener pastures, a better fit. Cap may be lucky that Sag does because the idea was more optimistic than realistic! But both are changed. Sagittarius will be a little more alert to select better partners, not lead people on a merry path that wastes time. Cap may tweak the idea to something that does work. Or the idea just hasn’t reached the right time to happen yet. Cap may put it on his future list, check back on that list periodically. Sleeping dog.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Sagittarius both have a boundless quality. Sag will travel forever; Pisces can step into an altered state with no boundaries at all other than being alive. Sag travels the Earth while Pisces can sit still and be somewhere else entirely. Sag has got to be in motion and can seem like a laughing loud whirlwind. Sag thinks Pisces is slow to the bone and needs a pick-me-up desperately! Ah, Pisces may have to stand up and go to the window for this one. Once up, he’s intrigued, and may find himself dancing like a Dervish in another dimension! Sag has done this traveling so long, place to place, he may not realize that he is actually weary and sits down for a while. Might be a few days or a few years. Listening is a whole different mode of being. Sag is a straight shooter, goes for the big Truth right now, and says what it is out loud. Pisces is more subtle, sees gradations, variables. He morphs, encompasses, at times confuses. Adjustments are made that fit the big picture better. Talk it over, part if you must, but give it some time, hear each other out.

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

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

Aries and Sagittarius are both leaders! Aries is at the front line, saving people right and left! He saves their bodies, gives them an inspiration jump start, then brings them to Sagittarius to learn what’s next and how to do it! Sag opens their minds to possibilities beyond what they started with. Sag encourages them, is plenty confident with high hopes for them! Action sports are helpful to keep the molecules humming. Neither are marriage minded, but it’s fun together while it lasts! Aries get bored; Sag has itchy traveling feet. Only if you strongly have the same goals is a team likely.

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

Taurus is an Earth sign; Sagittarius is a Fire sign that seems halfway across the continent to a Taurus. They are so different that Sag may seem like more of a phenomena than an actual person. If you are firing ceramics in the kiln it’s not so foreign. Fire and clay. Fire is actually the stabilizer! Taurus is looking for peace, the ability to sit and center. Uranus rarely has that thought, but may be surprised how useful that relaxation is. Sag sits for a bit, but must soon wander off. Uranus loves all those ideas. Taurus touches them in his own way and owns them for himself. Sagittarius is intrigued by what Uranus in Taurus has and will achieve, unpretentious genius really, and happily spreads the good word along his way.

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

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Sagittarius happily boots Chiron right along, always wanting people to be well, have abundance, success! Chiron in Pisces can get a little lost at times, confused. Sag is known for saying everything out loud and up front, so no escaping the truth, like it or not. Though uncomfortable, it may be the very right time to face up to victim attitudes, fears, addictions. Sag has big boots, and can help make the seven league leap look effortless! All of a sudden you are in a different land and have a different outlook entirely!

Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Sagittarius waves as he goes by, cheers them on, is inspired to tell their story! Sagittarius wants the information spread far and wide, encourages Aries to plant those seeds in the most fertile soil. Chiron may have spiky red hair this time, laughing like Kokopelli! Chiron may heal people so fast, quickly picking up the pieces, even Sagittarius, stunningly healthy and able, is impressed. Chiron is covering the ground, Sag likely to follow! It is so good to see how truly remarkable health can be! He is cheered and feels he can carry on against the longest odds. Aries is fast to pick up the tricks Sag has acquired along the way, and Sag has no secrets, shares as much as Aries will take! Sag has creds, his own health and luck! These two disperse the doubt like a whirlwind, the way is cleared, production unfettered!

SATURN builds from 6 to 20 Capricorn.

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 6 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through December 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can put the brakes on Fire sign Sagittarius. Sag has a lot to offer, but can appear to be like a big floppy puppy with kisses all around! Saturn believes in discipline and may miss a little of that love and affection, but as he trains the pooch in us, results make good sense, as long as our Spirit isn’t broken and creativity lost. A wise Saturn gleans the good from Sagittarian adventures, thanks him, offers to pay for the next trip, and makes that Sag feel so valued! Sag’s trips become more focused, places visited have much more meaning, knowledge is shared both ways, continuing long distance connections make a difference! If anything, Sagittarius is more excited than ever! Saturn may help Sag establish a home base. That might take some doing, but it could work. Just don’t keep the reins too tight nor expect a marriage. There would need to be some strong compatibility for that. If you see the Light dimming in your Sagittarian’s eyes, let them loose. Boredom or continually trying too hard to please you has too high a price. No matter what you think, they have the luck of the Irish and they’re going to be ok! However, if you get out of hand, LOL, Saturn does have handcuffs…

JUPITER moves from 2 Sagittarius to 4 Capricorn

Jupiter is a big fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter went into Sag at 4:38 AM Pacific. The huge Camp Fire in California started that morning, first calls at 6:33 AM. Jupiter changing signs was preceded by an eventful NINE days started by the important 248 year aspect Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! I had written ‘Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!’ As of Nov 21, the Camp Fire has taken the lives of 81 people, about 870 are missing. Nov 15 nearby Chico CA had an AQI, Air Quality Index, of 350 at one point.

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

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

Happy New Year, Sagittarians!

Jupiter, your Planet, is in your sign, its own sign! Put on your 7 league boots and have a swell time!x


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….

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

 

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians!

Aquarius Oprah Winfrey Air Sign at Grand Canyon!

Oprah at Grand Canyon ~ magnificent, majestic and sacred! She has dubbed 2017 the YearOfAdventure, so she’s exploring the great wide open and inviting you to do the same!

Jan 29, 1954 Oprah Winfrey arrived on the planet and has become a known part of the planet. From obscure small beginnings she has risen, become the first woman in history to both own and produce her own talk show. Many of you know much of her achievements – influential book critic, an Academy Award-nominated actress, magazine publisher. She is also, according to several assessments, the most influential woman in the world.

What many don’t know is Aquarians are great bankers! And Aquarius is the sign that follows Capricorn, the sign of career, making Aquarius the receiver of the spoils! Having that wealth gives the opportunity for sponsoring community work and international organizations. Oprah holds the distinctions of being the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and the world’s only black billionaire for three straight years! 2.9 billion USD (2017) Forbes

Venus conjunct her Sun gives beauty and money! They and her Mercury in Aquarius trine her Jupiter in Gemini give her super intelligence, a quick wit, a broad view and more money! The Moon in Sagittarius was born to go places, cross cultural gaps, be a natural teacher! Jupiter and its sign Sagittarius are optimistic, see far ahead, are lucky in their pursuits! And it’s fun! Aquarius and Sagittarius are in combination, signs that need freedom and often don’t marry. She has been with her boyfriend Stedman Graham since 1986; they spend a lot of time apart and have never married.

Venus with the Sun gives self indulgence, a love of sweets and carbs. Aquarians aren’t famous for calorie burning exercise, nor is Venus unless it is dance. Her Mars in Scorpio square Pluto in Leo can block exercise through embarrassment, need for privacy, physical discomfort. She has been a brave woman publicly facing these challenges that so many scorn. Yet these same placements have also helped her break many financial barriers!

Oprah’s latest book Food, Health And Happiness is now available at Amazon: ‘Oprah Winfrey will be the first to tell you, she has had a complicated relationship with food. It’s been both a source of delight and comfort for her, but also the cause of an ongoing struggle with her weight. In Food, Health, and Happiness, Oprah shares the recipes that have allowed eating to finally be joyful for her. With dishes created and prepared alongside her favorite chefs, paired with personal essays and memories from Oprah herself, this cookbook offers a candid, behind-the-scenes look into the life (and kitchen!) of one of the most influential and respected celebrities in the world. Delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare, these are the recipes Oprah most loves to make at home and share with friends and family…a taste of happiness, a ritual to be shared, a toast to life!’

Remember, she has proclaimed 2017 the Year of Adventure. She says ‘Try different restaurants. Take a class on something new. Be challenged. Get stimulated. Have some fun! And redefine what fun means for you.’

Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Feb 10, 11 2017

Thanks to Sky & Telescope for this image!

Per Sky & Telescope: ‘The beginning and end of a penumbral eclipse are not visible to the eye. In fact, no shading can be detected until about 2/3 of the Moon’s disk is immersed in the penumbra. This would place the period of eclipse visibility within about 3/4 hours of greatest eclipse (about 00:00 to 01:30 UT1). Keep in mind that this is only an estimate. Atmospheric conditions and the observer’s visual acuity are important factors to consider.’

It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely at mid eclipse for deep penumbral shading on the northern half of the Moon closest to the Umbra!

The Pacific time for the Eclipse is 4:33 PM, but best viewing times are different!

Penumbral eclipse begins: 2:34 p.m. (on February 10)
Greatest eclipse (nearest umbra): 3:44 p.m. (on February 10)
Penumbral eclipse ends: 6:53 p.m. (on February 10)

For how to convert UT to your own local time, see Time Zones and Universal Time.

Enjoy watching!

2017 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aquarius!

Aquarius Big Skies Space Freedom Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler, self described scrambler ChrisW

Big skies, great space gives an Aquarian room to move around! On a clear day you can see forever. Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler self described scrambler ChrisW

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Aquarius has no such attachments as Pluto does, not known for obsessions, compulsions. Aquarius is Capricorn’s neighboring sign ahead. Capricorn built the structure so Aquarius can be free to meet there, contemplate and organize community groups, world networks to update old ways, invent new channels! Aquarius is the last Air signs. Gemini is our personal breath of Life. Libra is the breath and air among us, living relationships. Aquarius is the planetary air above us that we fly in, that unites us all. Resources are intentionally directed to make the world a better place.

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! Aquarius is the sign before Pisces, that transmits the Word on the winds across the world, through the internet. It breathes the beliefs of Pisces through us so all may know what needs saving. Timeless visions are to be awakened with magical words. Right at home, friend to friend, profound matters are discussed looking for unusual approaches that will shake us from our sleep! Neptunians understand our oddities and the language of the future, have an uncanny knack for seeing where to go and why! They are happy to be our Guides, sensitive to every nuance.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through January 2018. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. ChangeMaker Aquarius feels right at home with this visitor of his own kind, ever moving, inspired and inspiring! Aries is First, is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Not only do they have the ideas, but they get put into action! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries just might keep up! Aquarius likes speedy sports, air inclined, but their weakness is the think tank blues, sitting entranced at that keyboard, inventing or sneaking in a computer game here and there! Aries gets them outside, demanding better food to support the mountain hike in fresh clean air!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees, but in Pisces through January 2018. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aquarius incorporates all kinds of electronics into our modern medicine, from digital thermometers to taking a ride in the body scanning machine at the hospital! Research is one of their businesses, innovative solutions can succeed where old remedies didn’t work well enough. Neptune might recommend meditation, relaxation, transformation through doing work you love, something meaningful. Aquarius couldn’t agree more! They know that freedom is Being, true to your core. Though Pisces the Magician might wish for fairytale romance, Aquarius may wish for freedom more. Chiron can help them see how a partnership with someone who is comfortable to let them come and go on whim or airline schedule, is bright like they are, or simply gentle, kind, patient, grounding and admiring, could work quite well!

Saturn travels from 21 degrees Sagittarius to 3 degrees Capricorn in the year ahead. Aquarius enjoys a good trip with business compadres! They can go to meetings to promote special projects for sustainability, improve laws for more people, build universities, contribute computer gear for students or seniors! People of different cultures will add their values, innovations, manners and customs that improve well being. Bonds may be formed over distances, territories realistically expanded. Aquarians may find themselves quite comfortable in a business that intrigues them. They are more willing to take care of themselves because they have good reason!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, there will be more traditional endeavors. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Rules, responsibility, respect for elders called for. Aquarius can see how this is favorable. Long term means choosing what makes sense for our environment, to protect the future for our children, build and select systems that favor seniors. Aquarius will be hard pressed to keep up with inventions for the needs of the people! Research may bring some medical breakthroughs.

Those of you with Saturn 21 Sag to 3 Cap will be having your Saturn Returns, a 29 year event! Saturn can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements in that 29 years! 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, 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. Sagittarius Saturn may find their travel budget lacking for the time being, or they may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Capricorn Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or start their own business! Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aquarius thrives in all that travel to far away places, meeting people who think out of the box we are used to! A travel or import business could be lucrative! Relationships may work better than usual. Libra has a certain amount of flexibility, is intelligent, and has a broader range of give and take than many other signs. Jupiter can be opinionated, but learns from inventive Aquarius and it suits them because Jupiter always has an eye to future and greater possibilities. Jupiter’s optimism is contagious and Aquarius is surprised and pleased to find a thoughtful and willing colleague!

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians! Quite an exciting and productive year coming for you!


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….

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime! Earth Girl

Angels for Earth, my title, by Roberto Campus. Roberto lives in rural Vermont, and his client list is long and famous!

Not your average citizen! Aquarians are seekers beyond small thoughts. Magical flying dragons to Angels of Magnitude, they take us there.

Above and beyond! Aquarius is an Air sign, rises above all other signs! It is the high wind that speeds along the mountain tops. It is the air that planes fly in and spaceships travel beyond!

The Aquarius double zig zag symbol is where the mountain tops meet the sky, the Aquarius Zone, where the crisp air goes straight to your brain! Freedom of the Ethers! Elevation, tall vision, in the invisible element! The Internet is a form of modern day ether, and many an Aquarian is accused of being legless in their computer chair, no exercise, no sun, not even much air! Either way, fly your hang glider or zot around the internet world whenever you are intrigued to do so! Awareness expands, awakening begins!

Electronic music is the sound of the Universe thinking ~ airy melodies that float, or ones with a fast beat that tickle your neurons. Exotic unruly out of the box jazz is inspiring and contemporary music that defies definition pleases your Soul! Music from every dimension, different cultures, with strange instruments and tonal qualities are quite comfortable. Singing, making your own music, is entirely free, and your voice may be incredibly unique.

Aquarians excel in all uncommon activities, which seem to have a magnetising effect on you! Aviation, parachuting, ballooning, hang gliding, rock climbing, pole vault or high jump, skating, skiing, and free form dance, etc. Sports with friends, or Solo hiking, especially at the alpine high-in-the-sky level refreshes your spirit. On earth, birding with friends or on your own can take you to unique places.

Inventions, innovative businesses, detached bankers and bartenders, writing, astronomy and space odyssey fantasies open gateways. Humanitarian projects to help people and/or the world are a scale you can appreciate and thrive in. That’s where you might meet your match! Someone with a consciousness that is quick with creative solutions, not afraid of your ideas and intelligence, broad in scope, life changing, keeps you connecting. It’s electric!

Because Aquarians themselves can be eccentric, odd, loners and lonely, people of all kinds, who aren’t mainstream, feel comfortable to tell them the unusual things about themselves. Aquarians are more fascinated than fearful. They often simply accept what is rather than judge it. Their friends certainly aren’t boring. Aquarians will have an eclectic group of friends who don’t necessarily enjoy each other! A research team, computer project, a mutual cause will more likely bring them together productively for a time. Then they will migrate in different directions to higher ground in a good way.

Healthwise, your body really does need food. Just as the planet needs sustainability, so do you! Go for quality food, explore what exercise you actually would like to do. Sleep as you can. Aquarians always have that hum, buzz, are plugged in to the greater world intelligence. There are places and people different beyond the average person’s wildest imagination! Stay well so you can go there! Things need doing. Be well so you can do them. Find mind changing ways to communicate your special gifts, insights. Keep your brain well fueled so it is present for the crucial moments of exchange, when the next level can be attained!

There are many Angels in disguise. Some laugh and tease us. Some are not pretty. We are enchanted by others. We know there is something right around the corner and we catch a glimpse. They hold our hands to cross the inter dimensional bridge. Some are lovers, others are the stranger you will never see again. There are everyday teachers that take us with them. Some walk, some fly, but every Aquarian is on the flight of a lifetime!

We are on the threshold of a vastly changing reality. You have a special part in its unfoldment.

New Moon!  Four Planets Capricorn, Three in Pisces! Midpoints, Two T Squares!

Wednesday Dec 28, 10:53 PM Pacific at 7 Capricorn 59, the last one of 2016!

Capricorn 2016 New Moon Teton Milky Way Royce Bair

Grand Teton Range, Milky Way, Standing Tree People by amazing photographer Royce Bair

This is our last Moon of 2016, and potent it is! It ends one cycle, begins anew as our year ends and another is immanent. It has two planetary groupings – Capricorn and Pisces, and is nested in the four major aspects ending 2016 that are in only an eight day timeframe on the very day of Saturn square Chiron!

Four planets in Capricorn celebrate our achievements! The New Moon merger of Mother Moon with Father Sun are in the sign of Father Capricorn. This time of year we need Mother Moon’s nurturing at a time she’s really busy and maybe a bit tired. Know she loves you. Take some time out together. Our heavenly Feminine and Masculine forces are united. Practice that unity. Moon is there to nurture and comfort. Sun lights the way. Though days are short for the time being, he is a stalwart champion through many a dark hour.

Mercury at 6° is right with the New Moon at 7°! In Capricorn it calls for respect, long term commitment, a pledge to work honorably for meaningful goals, to hold honor. Paying attention is a prized skill, so potent moments are noted, synthesized, stabilized for continued use. Stillness, a pause, is like frozen magic! It lets us see, hear, in a profound way, to know the true abiding values that take us forward through time. Sign the papers.

Pluto, in Capricorn since 2008, now midway through Capricorn, has cleared many personal faults, changed our economic and political stances, opened doors to many new careers, taken a lot of new looks at parenting and aging. Planetary temperature shifts have brought new thought about agriculture, construction and sustainability. There is a mixture of fate and futility with gathering facts, doing research, and steadily working to turn things around, adopt new potentials!

Three planets in Pisces! From Capricorn Unicorns to SeaGoats to Mermaids this is a magical New Moon!! Mercury Moon and Sun sextile Mars and the Pisces planet Neptune! A five planet earth and water sextile! You can see the ocean from the mystical heights of Capricorn! The mountains guide Piscean sailors along the beautiful coast. Mars in Pisces can be still as a mirror at sea, swoons with waves, rocks in the cradle. Other times he roars, tsunamis to shore, pounding the rocks into grains of sand! He is enchanted by Neptune’s insights as he slithers like a seal through the seaweed, surfs like a dolphin, breaches like a whale! The ocean is like a giant prism, with glimpses of tiny creatures in dappled sunlight slanting down or gliding, guiding up like through a cathedral.

Ah, did I get carried away? Just wanted you to feel it as it lives. Mar in Pisces with Neptune. Pisces is so all seamlessly encompassing we really can feel that all are one. The ocean is a salty cleaning machine. It is mystical on a foggy night. We can sit in the temple so still we hear our breath and heartbeat, feel our life’s pulse. It is humbling to be a part of all Souls. We see what needs doing. Capricorn is the last of the Earth signs, the ultimate pragmatist. Mars will lean his shoulder to the timber of Capricorn’s project, guiding it with his very body to intuitively place it exactly as needed. Miracles really happen and dreams do come true. The high five is a salutation of gratitude.

The Holiday Four

  1. This New Moon follows the Christmas Eve Saturn trine Uranus. They are still quite close by numbers and actively integrating new alignments! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet and Uranus is the planet of the next sign Aquarius. Trines are considered to be the best linkage between planets. Saturn and Uranus are so opposite they often aren’t friends. Saturn is perhaps the most conservative of all the signs. Uranus has no such constraints, cares for no party in particular and doesn’t care what YOU think. Yet scientific Capricorn is likely to be one of the first who supports Aquarian inventions, and sees the value of Aquarian community goals, the internet, and certain philanthropies. Change can become fact.
  2. Jupiter was opposite Uranus only two days before on the 26th! Another major aspect still active! Jupiter in Libra is quite lively lining up the Souls either to oppose you or shake hands across the table! Uranus in Aries couldn’t be more independent spirited, but also is the leader of reform groups or instigators of united efforts of several groups together! Jupiter in Libra pulls in law and justice, speaks widely socially, compares peoples and times anthropologically. The gap may be huge, but so is the reach across the chasm! Mergers for solidarity make sense.
  3. On this very day of our New Moon, Saturn Squares Chiron at 3:06 PM Pacific. There may be, or have been, losses or perceived potential losses of love, life, money, career, health. This aspect has been close for some time, so we already have inklings what needs attention, propping up, to be let go of, worked for. Each thing you take care of is a step, something you won’t need to deal with later. Keep focus on your priorities. Maybe get  plans on your calendar. Saturn in Sagittarius can see a worthy future worth the work. Do it!
  4. The last aspect of 2016! The remaining aspect the what I’m calling the Holiday Four is Jupiter inconjunct Chiron the 31st!  An inconjunct is often a stretch, an off balance reach to the side. It is seductive to those who are curious. It may take you off track, yet give you vital information. You may decide to keep on going on that new road! Jupiter in Libra has met many on their travels, some even intriguing to Chiron, an old Master, in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, not impressed by much. Jupiter, however, ups the ante, smart in Libra, thinks of combinations that change the pace! And likely the place too! Social venues are adjusted, financial options are altered, health is adapted to new circumstances. Stay calm, eyes open, flexible. Check with experts, take your time when you can.

See more about the Holiday Four! Are all big aspects, outer planet to outer planet. It is unusual to have 4 of them happen so closely in time, the 24th, 26, 28 & 31st!

Give yourself credit for all you have achieved in 2016! Thank you for every step you have taken.

Full Wolf Moon! – Grand Cardinal Square, 4 Planets in Pisces 4 at 22°!

Thursday January 12, 3:34 AM Pacific, at 22 Cancer 27 

Capricorn, First Full Moon of 2017, Wolf

And we’re off! The first Moon of 2017! Another Capricorn – Pisces time of miracles and magic!

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, tender but strong. She births. She tenderly cares for loved ones and finds ways to feed the multitudes. It is an honor to be her mate. Father Sun is ultimate Father in Capricorn, Father Time. He builds the shelter, protects, works, teaches responsibilities and a moral code.

Full Moons are of opposite signs, major differences, yet as dynamic contributors to a mutual cause, they can work together. Cancer is known for its sensitive emotionalism. It is a bell bellwether to the possibility of upcoming trouble. Capricorn has less sympathy, is more a get it done type, especially in challenging times. Each helps the other. Cancer helps guide through what can be illogical. Capricorn takes charge and gives great hope through its efforts, the smallest steps meaningful. Five days previously, Sun made his annual conjunction with Pluto. The five days previous to that conjunction, Sun intensely considered financial matters, the state of relationships, matters of life, death and healing.

Grand Cardinal Square! Our Full Moon is crossed by Jupiter opposite Uranus spanning Aries to Libra! Aries is fiery Spirit leader; Uranus is an air planet, the Awakener and ChangeMaker! This combination can be sudden, a bit shocking, intriguing, here and gone in a flash, to pop up unexpectedly quickly somewhere else! Jupiter in Libra is fascinated, doesn’t mind the trip, meets these extraordinary Beings along life’s Path. Aries is willing to fight for it, while Libra can be the lawyer, seeking peaceful resolution, but will do what it takes if their back is against the wall. Be cautious of exaggerations, but step up to the plate if it appears to be well founded and you are needed.

Our Cancer Moon might rather stay at home, but if home, or women and children are the issue, it will stand up too. They will take food to the marchers, blankets to the homeless. Capricorn prefers law and order, so has pals at the courthouse and in the police force, but here again, if people are in dire need, they will build those emergency shelters. Having had their own hard times, they have empathy, will teach others how to care for themselves. It’s good for our staunch Cancers and Cappies to meet new people, make extended liaisons community wide, be more informed. It can be a little scary when the new ones are dressed differently, their demeanors are fierce or they appear quickly. It may take awhile to adjust. At times Cancers or Caps may appear slow, but not so, they are taking it in, thoughtfully processing. It’s safer at times to slow things down. All four signs have special things to offer and to integrate can mean a more comprehensive solution!

Three of the Grand Square planets are at 22°, plus Saturn! Chiron is at 21 Pisces, and Uranus is at 20 Aries. That’s a tight pack of six planets! Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. Jupiter upps the amps on Chiron’s attention, bringing new insights on how to balance all types of systems in our bodies, minds and Spirit. New types of relationships are offered extending our network beyond what we thought possible! This aspect stays alive while Mars conjuncts Chiron Jan 16, then inconjuncts Jupiter Jan 17.Saturn trines Uranus Christmas Eve, Dec 24th. Working friendships have been a blessing. Support has come from surprising places. Keep these connections alive and well. Saturn is same degree sextile Jupiter, very, very close Dec 28 and 29, yet doesn’t make the exact aspect until Aug 27! This is a great planning aspect, and it’s a pleasure to get things done! Saturn in Sagittarius squares Chiron Dec 28, has been taking its toll – many Souls taking the Long Journey. Grieving is still fresh for many. See the Holiday Four.

FOUR planets in Pisces, two pairings! Moon is leaving a trine with Mars and Chiron. Moon has leant her nurturing to further rouse Mars’ compassion in Pisces, Chiron’s dedication to teaching and healing. Mars left sextile Pluto on the 10th, steadied and productive by Pluto in Capricorn’s strength and focus. Mars conjuncts Chiron Jan 16. This will perhaps cause wounds to our feet or our Soul. But Mars also may also give new insights that quicken healing! Fevers or fighting, cuts or rashes, punctures, stings. If you are seaside or on a boat, in the spa or bathtub, be a tad cautious. You may be inspired to take up art, magic, a special new line of work may come involving teaching. A soulful relationship may come your way, especially with Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces!

Venus and Neptune in Pisces make love and beauty. They can be comforting when your Soul is in danger. Self indulgence, addiction, is a danger if extreme, and holidays can bring up deep rooted family issues that need soothing. Be wise with your time. Know your limits, others’ limits. Be safe emotionally, stay away from hot topics, leave before regretful escalation, make visits brief. Eat right, be well rested. Take good care of yourself, be wise to getting support for yourself, make that call. Love may win, but sometimes it takes time, and you may not even be the one to bring changes to fruition. Teachers and healers know you can’t heal everyone every time. Often there is no failure at all. Turn your Spirit to creating music, going to sea, swimming, serving in kindness, spirituality. When you are up, support others in their time of need.

Venus conjuncts Neptune at 1:54 PM Pacific. That would be a gentile time to have a warmer daytime gathering, a Circle, to celebrate the Full Moon.

Mental transition! Mercury leaves Sagittarius, enters Capricorn at 6:04 AM Pacific, 2.5 hours after the Full Moon! While in Sagittarius, raise your eyes to see as far as you can see. Lift up your plans, expand your ideas. For some of us that will be pre Sunrise, for others of you it will be later on in the morning. You can be present for this shift. In Capricorn, our minds will twitch into gear and choices will be made how to expeditiously make those plans come true! Make notes, get goals down on your calendar!

Let your Wolf come out to play! Take a good bite of life in your New Year!

Planetary Backdrop 

Uranus square Pluto Continues…. May 27, 2010 to March 16, 2015  The major outer planet shake-up combo, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn, continues throughout 2014, finishing Mar 16, 2015.  Two exact aspects are formed in 2014.  These two are five and six of the seven, April 21 and December 14, at 13 and 12 degrees.  We are almost done with them, just a little more than a year to go. Time to finesse financial affairs. The series has been as low as at 6 degrees; the last aspect, Mar 16.2015, will be at 15 degrees.  At one time or another it has probably activated something in your chart.  Or maybe it hasn’t yet and will these last times.

There will be several planetary challenge activations of the square as the Sun, Mercury and Venus go through Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, making their annual circuit, and as Mars challenges from Libra and Capricorn on its two year circuit.  Planets in your charts from 7 to 15 degrees in those Cardinal signs will be strongly affected as the transit planets go through.

Aspects Tallies  Per the classical major aspects of astrology, of 22 aspects, there were 12 favorable aspects and 10 difficult aspects in 2013.  2014 will have 16, 7 favorable, 9 difficult.  2015 has 13, 3 favorable, 10 difficult and of 16 in 2016 the ratio is 3:13!  I’m encouraging my business clients to get stable and well founded before 2015 and 2016, be ready to hold the fort and ride the waves.  Be in jobs and businesses or investments that thrive in hard times and in recovery.  Things happening since 2010, and now, are not over and done with.
2014 brings two outer planet sign changes.  Jupiter leaves Cancer and jumps into fiery Leo, telling taller tales than usual! performance ratings will be high!  For the majority of the year, Saturn, the TimeKeeper, stays in the comfort of dark Scorpio where it tends to finances and healing.  Dec 23 it moves into Sagittarius, to get out into the world and travel a bit. Actually, the Goat doesn’t mind those mountains a bit! It is surefooted and frugal by nature.

Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

NEW Year’s Day 2014 opens with a Capricorn NEW Moon that has a 5 planet Capricorn Stellium!  That’s double New!  Capricorn focus and intentions are on work, fathering, building, climbing.  Solidarity, conservation, protection, right timing.  Bending the knees, but not burdened.  Archetypes, archaeology, human and spiritual law.  Profound tests, responsible leadership, senior wisdom.


Wedge to Cardinal Grand Square

Allowing a 5 degree range, Jupiter retrograde in Cancer opens the year starting a Wedge pattern (opposition base with a trine/sextile third point planet) Jan 6, and activating the Uranus square Pluto for an extended time!  It will be opposite Pluto at 12 degrees Jan 31, trine Chiron at 11 degrees Feb 5.  Chiron holds the energy as it sextiles Pluto at 13 degrees, the 5th of five times, Feb 25.   That same day, Jupiter having been slowly retrograding, for the 2nd time, and intensely in a same degree station, squares Uranus at 10 degrees, turns direct only 5 days later, makes the 3rd, last of 3 squares to Uranus April 20 at 13 degrees!  It opposes Pluto at 3:58 PM Pacific!  It is making a 5 minute, not degrees (60 minutes in a degree), exact outer planet T Square with the Uranus/Pluto square all day the 20th!  April 21, Uranus squares Pluto the 5th of the seven times.  You see how tight this pattern is.  Plus, April 8, Mars retrograde in Libra has come back, forming a 12 day Grand Cardinal Square!  April 20/21, Mars now at 14 Libra, is the pepper in the pot, making it a hot one degree CARDINAL GRAND SQUARE!  This one won’t be swept under the rug!  In order: 

  • Jan 31 and Feb 5 Jupiter, Chiron, Pluto Wedge is first – Secrets will out, healing will happen, plans will be made.  Step up to the plate, you can do it! 
  • Feb 25 Chiron sextile Pluto – Fear of power and success, betrayals, jealousy, spite, scorn, revenge, have a chance to be let go.  Time to let go of denial, do honest business with yourself and others.
  • Feb 25 to April 20 Jupiter square Uranus – You could run away, far, far away, but it won’t get the job done.  Not usually.  But if necessary to save yourself until you are stronger, do it.  You may lose some friends and find others in unexpected places.  Shed the alliances that are no longer working.
  • April 20, 21 Cardinal Grand Square culminates – The temptation is to exaggerate, and that may be temporarily necessary to make your point, get people to think.  If you get heated, take time out immediately.  Don’t say or do something that can’t be taken back.  With Pluto in the mix there may be no forgiveness this lifetime!  Some will want their way and appear to use any means to get it.  Others will show extraordinary kindness in the face of great difficulty.  This Grand Cross involves personal and home and family matters, marriage type relationships and business.  There will be a lot on our plates.  Be informed.  Take your best stuff to the negotiating table.  Put yourself in the other person’s place, but stand your ground.  If negotiating can’t work, let it go with what Grace you can muster.  Avoid blaming; do your part.  Get what you can get in a good way, or don’t do it.  But if you do, know there will be a price down the road.

Here is the Grand Square (red square lines) chart on the 17th with Venus in the mix! She trines Jupiter, sextiles Pluto, semi sextiles Uranus, all at 13 degrees!  Carefully played, and choosing investments relative to this chart, plus having some good aspects in and to your own chart, in spite of the Grand Square, this could be a money maker! Good luck!

April 20 2014 Grand Cardinal Square Venus Astrology Chart

Also along this outer planet T Square trail is the sizzling electric Mar 30, 2014 Aries NEW MOON!  It is a double three planet stellium chart – three planets in Pisces, three in Aries!  The New Moon is at the cardinal signs T point of the Jupiter opposite Pluto – see the red triangle?!  The New Moon is conjunct Uranus, the planet of earthquakes and Lightning, a Wildcard!  There will be lively Uranus in Aries challenges in spite of momentary New Moon blahs.  Perhaps the vibrancy will be within.  Friendships will end and begin. You will likely have concern about finances, but be too busy or not have the patience to deal with them. Oddly, they might lie still, barely simmering, maybe the lull before the storm! Hopefully the promise is renewal. Sudden changes may unsettle, but be for the best in the long run.  Be careful with electrics, fires, weapons and planes.  Be cautious of too much trust or way too little, overdoing your exercise, over eating or not eating at all.  It may seem like a dash in a moment, but there could be unexpected long term consequences.  There could be courageous breakthroughs, or entirely missing the boat.  You can see this is a perverse set!  Bottom line is use your intuition in the moment. Don’t start something you can’t finish or will regret later – no tantrums. It is just as honorable to let go, not participate, though your feelings may go crazy wanting to stand up and shout! Be willing to move on.  To thine own Self be true.

May and June Jupiter links
Chiron and Saturn in a GRAND Water TRINE!

Jupiter comes into a 5 degree range May 3, May 14 exactly trines Chiron, the last time of three. May 24 Jupiter has moved forward totrine Saturn, the last time of three. May 20 is the closest configuration of all three at 18 Cancer 17.  June 12 Saturn trines Chiron, the 4th of five times, which carries on continuously within a degree until the final 5th of five aspects, Aug 5, completing the entire set.

This is the culmination of Jupiter’s tines to Chiron and Saturn! It is a marvelous business trine!  Jupiter is generally prosperous, has terrific ideas. Saturn is the guiding light, stabilizes, is the Builder. They are so happy together toward the same goals! Chiron is uncannily aware of pitfalls, and knows how to heal the problems, tends and perseveres, keeps the troops in good shape. At the personal level, it’s a great time to see your healers.

This could be a good marriage time, but there are details, so get practical astrological advice, and be sure things are marvelous to your chart as well. If it’s good, you will have a solid relationship, each contributing.  It may be a romance of seasoned partners, professionals, educators. Travel and different cultures could spice things up. There will be touching understandings, a deepening beyond words. Congratulations if this is your time!

This IS a WATER trine.  It’s steamy if with fire, hot tubs, or puts out fire. Sizzle then fizzle. Earth provides a good old barefooted play in the mud, or reroutes the creek. Water flows downhill, the course of least resistance – follow them! Install a pond on your property and stock it! Or get that soothing fish tank!  Air and water are San Francisco-foggy – lost, passing like ships in the night, or magic and mystic though softened and soggy. Water with water is immersion and baptism, totally merging, no need to speak. Follow the currents….


July 16 Jupiter leaves Cancer, enters LEO!  See Sign Changes

Aug, Sep Jupiter Makes Three Inconjuncts 

  • Aug 14 to Neptune in Pisces – Allow the vision to expand and include ideas of other cultures
  • Aug 24 is when Jupiter is at the exact opposite midpoint between Pluto and Neptune, 8 Leo 44
  • Sep 5 to Pluto in Capricorn – Seek the unmitigated Truth and have fun doing it!  Funding may be right around the corner, literally!
  • Sep 14 is when Jupiter is at the exact opposite midpoint between Pluto and Chiron, 13 Leo 2
  • Sep 23 to Chiron in Pisces – When you thought there was no hope, the miracle becomes available.  But you have to look.

Inconjuncts are oblique aspects, when planets are 150 degrees of each other. They are to the side, just off center. There is extra perception as the environment is scanned, resulting in more accurate choices in context of the greater whole. When the wild ball comes at you, you can duck.  When you are alert to business or equipment advances, you can prepare to benefit from the upgrades, stepping into opportunities gracefully, with less cost.

Equidistant aspects are considered to be potent! Midpoints are not as commonly used in the US as they are in Europe, but they are even more powerful factors when triggered by a third planet! Since we have four planets in this sequence, there are two healthy midpoints, Aug 24, and Sep 14.  As the planets are moving these dates are when each of the three points are perfectly equidistant!

Jupiter and Neptune both like going places.  Jupiter is the traveler, body and mind, seeking right action, a broader perspective through learning.  Neptune travels in Spirit, meditation/mindlessness – another form of mind, seeking connection with the Soul, often crossing oceans to do it!  Jupiter expands, revels robustly! Races, rides horses, skis, skates while Pisces swims, rides the surf, sails!  But Neptune/Pisces sometimes sits until they become invisible even to themselves.  Jupiter can cheer up a laggard Neptune, give them ideas that the Neptune then drops into the subconscious to dream about.  Neptune sees the nuances and makes subtle coarse corrections that save the day!

With Pluto, Jupiter may have to dance quickly; the snake will strike if you tamper with it too much.  Better to tone it down a bit and match pace while prodding the reptile.  Yet Pluto is astute, especially in Capricorn, and sees the value of what’s being offered, even if they don’t use it the way Jupiter thinks they should.  There’s always a reason for our connections.  Pluto can take a wildly optimistic idea of Jupiter’s, distill it to core potential, sort out how to make it happen, profit from the results. We marvel at what they see and do. So if it seems like they are skeptical and didn’t really hear you, wait and see anyway.  Check back.  Think more on it yourself and bring more of your ideas back to the table too!

Jupiter is so well intended and healthy, usually, and Chiron is teacher/healer too, but some of their grace comes from having suffered.  Jupiter’s way is to educate you, get you moving, stretching your muscles to get you to reach for it!  Chiron is more quiet, serious, perhaps.  Daily it tends the sick, observes, works with deeper consciousness, sometimes at Death’s door.  In Pisces it doesn’t leap to conclusions, but flows here and there seeing context, primordial wounding. Sometimes it is important not to stress the patient/client/friend before they are ready. The body can’t heal if we don’t let it. Some things can’t be fixed, or it may take many lifetimes. They understand that and give comfort as can be done. When they can, they will meet you in the dreamtime. If you get bogged down, forget your direction, as healer or client, Jupiter will come by, snorting fire, and blow life right back into you! If Jupiter is the lame horse, take yourself to the healer! Chiron will scold you a tad as they kindly tend you.

Dec 14 brings the last exciting aspect of the year. It is the sixth, NEXT TO LAST, Uranus square Pluto!  Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely FOR 3 MONTHS, at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015!

Dec 23!  Saturn enters SAGITTARIUS!  See Sign Changes

Two Sign Changes, Fire Signs Leo & Sagittarius!

Beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales - Grace and Strength
Budweiser’s beautiful brutes lead with amazing grace and strength!

2014’s sign changes go well with the Chinese Year of the Horse!  Leo loves horse races/polo, and Sagittarius rules large animals, horses!

July 16 Lucky Jupiter leaves Cancer, enters Leo, the sign of GOLD!  Jupiter loves races, stretching its Pegasus wings!  Time to travel in style to all the hot places!  Leo is athletic and Jupiter loves games; both love to win!  Both like to share and teach.  Speeches will be peppered with personal anecdotes, stories will be inspirational!  Start an athletic school, a training center, do coaching!  The meaning of life is important from the rights of the tiniest beings to fanatic believers.  It will be the time for super heroes!  Market graphs may have quite highs and lows!  Climate changes may seem to speed up, especially the melting part.  Drought, fires, water could be serious matters.  We may need water consolation as well as conservation.  Be plenty mindful where you choose to live for an extended time, like where you retire.  Learn to use the land well and how to generate your own climate, food and power as much as possible, or link up with people who can do that.  Permaculture skills will prove to be valuable.  Invest wisely for your future, your children’s future.  Against a serious economic backdrop, we are kicking it up a bit!  Entertainment will be glorious. Overconfidence will make big spending, gambling, tempting.  Know that Jupiter takes about a year through each sign.  Keep your long term investments trim, choose the medium home versus the luxury home or apt., eat less ice cream!  :)  You can always go bigger later if things stay up for you!  Jupiter’s next sign will be Virgo, starting Aug 11, 2015.  Then we will be trimming the fat, possibly have dry times. In the meantime, stay cool (it’s gonna be hot), stay true, have a great time!

Last time Jupiter was in Leo was Aug 2002 to Aug 2003.  Iraq was fought and conquered.  Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrates during reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere, killing all seven astronauts aboard.  In the wake of the Sep 11, 2001 attacks, the Department of Homeland Security, the largest U.S. government reorganization since the creation of the Department of Defense in 1947, was created.  Annika Sörenstam became the first woman to play the PGA Tour in 58 years.  In Mexico, the last ‘old style’ Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the assembly line.  The summer of 2003 was among the warmest in the last three centuries!  It was the first time temps over 100 degrees, highest ever, were recorded in the UK. France, hit hardest, had seven days of 104 degree temps, resulting in 14,802 heat-related deaths (mostly among the elderly); and there was a severe heat wave across Pakistan and India that peaked at 122 degrees!  Leo, Martha Stewart, was indicted.

Dec 23 Saturn enters Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius!  While Jupiter has been partying in Leo since July, Saturn has been finishing Scorpio.  Saturn in financial Scorpio sees what it has to pay for.  Romantic relationships will either fizzle as the party charm wears off and accountability happens, or things will take root with the spending level as it is.  Saturn in Sagittarius now knows what to plan for, all the way out to longevity and Social Security.  It is intent on education backed up by what has happened in the Past, statistics and research that point key directions.  Travel will be only as essential.  It may not be the time to start a travel business or import/export, unless it is for everyday items at the best price.  Rocks, walls, borders, glass, ice, may come to some sort of prominence.  Saturn and Sagittarius are quite acquainted since Sagittarius comes first, then Capricorn, Saturn’s sign in zodiacal order.  Sag loves its freedom, roams the world and places of expansion and learning.  Saturn gets back and does business, as their Father did.  This is the combination of both of those. The responsibility Saturn takes prospers from the perspectives it gained while traveling.  It builds well situated on the land, strong from the foundation to the roof, using perfect slopes and slants for rain or snow, sustainable for hard times.  It always builds a back door, when possible, a well structured-cellar.  Doubter, seasoned life walker, faith healer, all have valuable points of view.  Fearful or friendly, stay as open as possible to opportunities that may take you further than you ever expected.  It could be the Gateway of a lifetime! 

Saturn will retrograde back into Scorpio June 14, 2015 to Sep 17, 2015, be in Sag two plus years, until it enters its own sign Capricorn, Dec 19, 2017.

Saturn was last in Sagittarius 27-29 years ago Nov ’85 to Feb ’88 and June to Nov ’88.  Windows 1.01 was first released on Nov 20, 1985, just three days after Saturn entered Sag.  The first international version 1.02, was released May 1986.

1986:  The first PC virus, Brain, starts to spread.  Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrates 73 seconds after launch, killing the crew of 7 astronauts, including schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe.  Halley’s Comet reaches its perihelion, the closest point to the Sun!  Chernobyl nuclear disaster.  Hands Across America: At least 5,000,000 people form a human chain from New York City to Long Beach, California, to raise money to fight hunger and homelessness.  The Oprah Winfrey Show premieres.
1987:  Harmonic Convergence!  Oct 19 Black Monday: Stock market levels fall sharply on Wall Street and around the world.  Thomas Knoll and John Knoll develop the first version of Photoshop.
1988:  NASA scientist James Hansen testifies to the Senate that man-made global warming had begun.   Al Qaeda is formed by Osama Bin Laden.  The Iran–Iraq War ends, with an estimated one million lives lost.

Horses! We ride; they serve. In times past they did work we couldn’t do ourselves. They have long been a symbol of going places on the winds of the Four Directions, whether of seasonal necessity, or simply wandering the beauty of our planet. Today, they are serving in a new way, as therapeutic beings. The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.), a federally-registered nonprofit, was formed in 1969 for individuals with special needs.

There are Horses, and there are Horses! In these two new signs, take yourself places. Whether you are magnificent in your harness, possibly incredibly well cared for, or are roaming free, make it glorious! Take excellent care of yourself; you are a good animal too. Strut your stuff and get your bookings! See what’s next, what it’s all about! Call on the thunder of a Clydesdale; run like a racehorse, your hair flying! Enjoy the safety of your Circles and set yourself free!

Retrogrades

2014 starts with back-to-back series of retrogrades involving Venus, Mercury and Mars. The series goes through May 19, 2014. Read More!

Mercury  2014 has its standard 3 Mercury Rx, each of them straddling water and air signs, Pisces/Aquarius, Cancer/Gemini, then Scorpio/Libra. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections.  Water signs bring a nurturing quality that keep those ideas and connections alive and thriving!
Venus directs Jan 31, 2014, finishing the Capricorn retrograde it started Winter Solstice, Capricorn day, Dec 21, 2013!
Mars  No 2014 retrograde.



Stelliums – Powerful Gatherings of Planets

The most simple definition of stellium is 3 or more planets in the same sign! Use these for sign specific emphasis, concentrated focus and as areas of expertise. The House/s where they occur in your chart is what you apply your focus to! Many planets in one sign give you many ways, options, to approach a specific area! You might be out of touch with other things, but leave that to people with that kind of emphasis. Simply let others know that’s not your department!

4 Planet Stelliums:

  • Dec 21, Winter Solstice Day, when the Sun entered Capricorn, we started the stellium with four planets, Sun, Mercury Venus and Pluto.  Dec 31, the Moon joins making it five in Cap!  Jan 2 we go back to four until Mercury leaves into Aquarius Jan 11.
  • Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Sun in Libra!
  • Oct 23 Scorpio starts with a stunning New Moon conjunct Venus – Moon, Sun, Venus all at ZERO degrees at 2:58 PM Pacific!  New Moon, New Sign, New degree!  Saturn 22 Scorpio is the fourth planet.
  • Nov 8 Mercury starts a second Scorpio stellium that goes 5 days until Venus leaves into Sagittarius Nov 16!  Mercury, Sun, Venus, Saturn.
  • Nov 20 – 22 we get a third Scorpio stellium formed as the Moon goes through Scorpio!
5 Planet Stelliums:  Dec 21, Winter Solstice, starts the last and only 5 planet stellium of 2014 in Capricorn!  The New Moon leads the way from ZERO Capricorn!  The stellium continues with 4 planets, Sun, Mercury, Pluto, Venus, after the Moon leaves, starting New Year 2015!  Jan 3 Venus enters Aquarius, leaving only three planets.

6/7 Planet Stelliums:  None in 2014.  Then next 6 planet stellium is Jan 16, 2018, at another New Moon!  It starts with 5 planets Jan 10, has 6 Jan 14 to 17, then is back to 4 on the 18th as two planets leave.

January has TWO New Moons, the first is in Capricorn on NEW YEAR’s Day, JAN 1! The second is Jan 30 at 10 Aquarius 55, the day before Chinese New Year’s Day! So both January New Moons fall at a New Year! The 2nd is also the day before Venus turns direct, and Jupiter makes its 2nd opposition Jupiter!

February’s NEW Moon will be at 11:59 PM Pacific on the 28th.  Other lower US zones will have no February New Moon!  Theirs will be on March 1!  For them, March will have TWO New Moons!

Five New Moons in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, are all at ZERO degrees!  We are truly starting new at each Sign change!  From then on, they are at the last degrees of their signs, finishing each sign with a lunar touchdown before the new signs start.

In Scorpio, Saturn will continue to guard us; Jupiter will continue to flourish in Cancer then Leo.  We will have a Wedge pattern that becomes a Grand Square in April, a Grand Water Trine in May/June, and an inconjunct series in August/September. And we get to see a few good eclipses!  May your 2014 travels take you exactly where you want to go and may every step be wild and magical!  Blessed be!  See 2012 Worldwide New Year images!

You can bet Jan 17, 1964 Capricorn First Lady Michelle Obama is a strong part of Obama’s successful presidency and reelection! She’s an inspiration to all women, children, her People. Uh, it’s said, if you want something done, write to her, not the President!

Capricorn, First Lady Michelle Obama

Michelle is strong, artistic, intelligent, a lawyer by trade! She has a warm Spirit, loves kids and gardens. Her 2012 book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America is based on her experiences with the garden and promotes healthy eating. Her call for action on healthy eating has been echoed by the United States Department of Defense, which has been facing an ever expanding problem of recruit obesity. She’s an advocate for poverty awareness, strongly supports women’s rights, and military families, helping working women balance career and family, encouraging national service, and promoting the arts and arts education. Fabulous that she gave a keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and also spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Did I mention she has great courage?

Capricorn, First Sign into the Next 26,000 Years!

I have great respect for that Capricorns are leading our way, the first sign, into the next 26,000 years! They are third of the three earth signs, a culminating sign of honor, at the top of the natural zodiacal wheel, with ability to achieve maximum potential! As Builders, they work hard with the law and order of science, to make a safe place for us. The recent Newtown CT massacre puts Gun Control right in their sights. As adepts, Magicians, it will take all their skills to bring a working consensus. Emotionalism is not one of their trademarks, yet they will have to deal with frightened people on both sides of the issue.

Facing reality squarely is one of Capricorn’s fortes. From that acknowledgment, the foundation of change is established, further time wasting floundering is over. You can move on exactly from your center. You know your challenge. Information and education is natural next. Informed choices, some trial and error, get it into practice. Setting reasonable boundaries will guard progress until sufficiently established to stand on our own, adjust to changes without falling, or losses due to negative seduction and side trips. Straight ahead.

Timing is one of Capricorn’s great tools. They know how to wait if they have to. Having priorities right between your eyes, however, making potent choices every step of the way, compounds your speed in a good way, gets you there at prime velocity! You just have to get used to all the success! Success is another talent of Capricorn. It’s a new way to live. Doing it well takes some adjusting. Most of us are used to living in the barrel. How to come out into the Light really does take effort and hanging onto yourself so you don’t self-sabotage and go running back. Breathe. Stand still. Absorb it, learn how it feels. Your new friends will be happy for you, glad to help. You can do it. You already got this far.

Your part in the Uranus Aries/Pluto Capricorn Square through Mar 2015: Pluto is in your sign. It’s on a 248 year cycle, so very few people have Pluto in their sign in a lifetime. Pluto can take all your money, your life, your mate, or it can empower you to wealth, clean healthy living, with a super partner! It is the Planet of cleaning and clearing. Let go of the Past, learn from it, move on, one step at a time if necessary. If there are obstructions, help them come down, see the way to wiggle through, get the key to the door. Pluto rules sex in marriage, intimacy, deep bonding. If your Capricorn planet or area of your chart is a little rigid and cold, relax, let Pluto’s molten lava warm you from your core. Pluto rules sharing, but Capricorn can be money poor, frightened, grinchy, hanging on to every dime, denying, joyless, contracting to loneliness and, eventually, poor health. Bust it loose, corporate mergers do hugely better. Do a franchise! Invest a bit at a time. Learn from others, your mistakes, but do it!

Uranus in Aries will not be standing quietly aside taking it all in. Nope. It’s the tree shaker, pants on fire! Surprising options can surface. Tweaks and zaps change parameters instantly. It’s more impatient than you have ever known, but, let’s not be staid and compound the old errors! Make some new ones and clean up the mess! At least it’s enlivening and maybe even a little entertaining! Change and awakening gets your blood going! Uranus rules groups or loners, and Aries is independent. There’s also a slight war going on – who’s it gonna be? Me, you, or them, or all of us together?! Shall I do it myself, or get the computer warmed up for some of that social networking? Prolly gonna be some new ways to use that computer too.

Mayan Calendar Alignment Portal! Log your intentions, long term plans. Focus on your potent choices of action. Schedule check ins to see how you are doing. Revise, renew, stay true! Think big, we got a long way to go!
