Full Cold Moon!

Beautiful bright night, Dec 21 Winter Solstice is followed by the Dec 22 Full Cold Moon 9:49 AM Pacific at 0 Cancer/Capricorn 49! 

Traditional Cancer/Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune, Saturn Sextile Neptune!

2018 Cancer Capricorn Full Cold Moon Star Heavens Solstice

Star of wonder, Star of night, Star with royal beauty bright
Homeward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to Thy perfect Light

Winter Solstice is the darkest longest night, a night of new beginnings as each day after gets a little longer and the Light comes back. The very next day the Full Cold Moon is a new beginning too at ZERO Capricorn/Cancer. Mother Moon is feeling quite comfy in her own Sign Cancer. She’s keeping the home fires burning, might be making gingerbread cookies and tasty eggnog! Cappie makes sure the firewood is in and the long night doesn’t seem so long. Lots of love, feeling safe to think about the New Year to come. Yule gifts are so appreciated, and support our most meaningful choices. 

Children will be coming home, families will be gathering, elders and friends are visited or join us. Some will be sorely missed, not with us on this plane anymore. Bless their souls and comfort us. Schooling and our work, businesses will be discussed. Take time out to walk alone for a while each day, to recenter in your own being, to bring back gentle kindness. Allow primary differences to coexist. Capricorn and Cancer are both staunch protectors of tradition, but let yourself also allow for creativity to spark fires we never knew burned within us! Say, I’ll think about it, and give it some time. Things have a way of working out. Respect the elders and respect the youngers. Love it up! 

There are few ‘active’ aspects in the Full Moon chart. That means the majority of aspects, planetary connections have already happened, our job is to carry them forward. The active aspects haven’t completed yet, are still being addressed.

Past Aspects

In the last three days, Sun in Sagittarius squared Chiron in Pisces, trined Uranus. Sun tried to trick Chiron a bit, help him heal a little faster, give him some business tips from other cultures business styles, even could have tried to offer him some imports to sell, or to get him to export something special he produced. They could have easily disagreed over ethics, the ‘truth,’ or beliefs. Things might have gotten a bit tangled. But the trine with Uranus, a more flowing aspect, brought them back to friendship and it became more about how fun it could be to surprise everyone else! Off they went together!

Venus in Scorpio just brought her sweetie Neptune his favorite chocolates. Chocolate vitamins are the best! He sings her favorite fairy tales. He tells her mythic stories of lovers who saved each other, so eloquent they will never be forgotten. She shares some of her secrets knowing they will be safe with him. That means a lot and he is touched. She is so charismatic even the old man of the sea is swayed by her powerful Grace. He feels her deep caring and healing. The loss of loved ones is lessened. They both understand spiritual matters, the essence of Soul. At the end of the day, together they rock the baby and soon everyone is asleep, dreaming with the Angels.

Mars, feeling his way along in Pisces, made a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. Mars’ intuition and surprising strength of character may have impressed Pluto. He could have gotten hired for the holidays and the job be kept afterwards. Mars may have secretly inspired Pluto to be a little more tender using his own strengths. Pluto in Capricorn, more financially inclined, may modify some of his intentions, be reminded of his integrity, and acknowledge more of his spirituality. 
 
Upcoming Aspects

Jupiter and Saturn The two most important aspects of the chart are the two most important of 2019, active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted and his exaggerated tales make your howl with laughter. Who cares if you believe it or not?! Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury, right in front of Jupiter, squares Neptune too! Due to the retrograde it happens Mercury squares Neptune at this Full Moon too, at the SAME degree, 10 Sagittarius! Mercury is generally is a fast mover, makes a quicky square. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Neptune too can go any which way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Practical matters: With this square, confusion is common, getting lost happens, lost luggage may never be seen again. Think carefully what you want to take with you. Since Mercury and Jupiter are so optimistic in Sagittarius, wait to sign papers. Being trusting, they may overlook important words or the lack of them. It may be innocent, naive, or an out and out scam! Mercury may clarify what Jupiter is hoping for, but may also exaggerate and overwhelm Neptune who only ever wanted a quiet life behind the scenes. Either you have to jump in and grab Neptune before he retreats, or gentle down your approach so he doesn’t shut down right before your eyes. Tell the truth or not, but if you do, do it very kindly. The lot of you might get in some funny or not so funny trouble. Try to leave drugs/alcohol out of it. Being too smart or arrogant may not play so well. So just go to the concert instead?! Mercury makes the exact square Monday the 24th at 4:33 PM. Caution Fri/Sat/Sun nights, drive carefully Monday afternoon. No dares, no races, no bets. Be safe.

Mars is trining Moon’s North Node. The North Node is spanning the Full Moon axis, with the North Node in Moon’s own sign Cancer, the South in Capricorn. The nodes work for balance between old, what used to be, the South Node, and what’s needed now, the North Node. These signs are classic, the vertical axis of the natural astrological chart. North is at the bottom of the chart, South is at the top. The Bottom is at home, with Mother and children, while the top is Father out in the world making wages, establishing the family’s reputation. Mars in Pisces is sensitively offering new ideas. He could be so subtle that Cancer never realizes what was said in passing conversation was so important. Pay attention to what the new person in the group is about or is saying. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see many facets that need to be harmonized. Cancer and Capricorn want the best for their children, the generations. Likely, environmental matters – extremes of weather, clean air and water, good soil for food, housing, will be important to them, as well as medicine and education. They are what we astrologers call Cardinal signs, the ones who get things moving. They stand strong for fundamental truths.

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

In respect and full honor, Blessed be…

Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Saturday January 5, 2019 at 5:28 PM Pacific, 15 Capricorn 25. 

Solar Eclipse, 5 Planet Capricorn Stellium, Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune!

Capricorn 2019 New Moon Milky Way Monument Valley AZ John Vermette

Happy New Year! First Lunar event of 2019! First Eclipse of 2019! First of three 5 Planet Stelliums of 2019! The Eclipse is the important lunar event before 2019’s First two outer planet aspects, Jupiter square and Saturn sextile Neptune Jan 13 and 31st (reversed numbers – 13/31!)!

Mercury, Saturn, Moon & Sun, and Pluto, all in Capricorn, are celebrating the start of 2019! The second 5 Planet Stellium is in Virgo, the third is in Capricorn again at the end of 2019.

In the Stellium….

Mercury is strong and hard working in Capricorn, getting the word out on the New Year Agenda. He wants a commitment, how much and when, by whom. He is coming up from behind the Capricorn group, will first confer with Saturn to get the top priorities, the latest news.

Mercury is square Mars. In Capricorn, likely Mercury is shaking his finger at Mars, saying slow down! Mars in Aries wasn’t born to slow down! He’s frisky as hell and loving scaring everyone around! He’s leading the way and no one’s going to stop him! New territory always has that fresh feel, goes right to his head! Mercury will have but a few moments to catch his attention, so get to the point and don’t make it sound like an order, LOL. See how you can help him, not hinder him! Could try a little reverse psychology, or dare him though… Mercury will square him exactly at 2:04 AM Pacific the 8th, so the 7th is the day it peaks. Mars could trip Mercury up, take up his time, yell at him, be annoying, be of no help at all, and not even listen. Mars himself could fall or need help and there goes Mercury’s plans for the day. Ok. Be careful, do the best you can.    

Saturn is in his own sign, and his responsibilities almost seem to have doubled, though Capricorns are tough and determined. He will find a way. Likely he’s the boss and can get some help, just needs to keep tabs on the crew and the project on track. If he’s a new year father, he’s probably as proud as burst buttons, and a wee bit tired too. Parents and elders may figure in strongly.

Jupiter & Saturn Jupiter is not in the stellium but forms the first of the two most important aspects in the chart, the two most important of 2019! They are active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect Jan 13 is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is aiming to rev up the motors, expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his cheerful intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. This is a rather friendly square. Neither one minds a little fascinating random chaos. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of that chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function. Not bad.

Moon & Sun are sporting the first Eclipse of 2019, a Solar Eclipse! This pup is a partial, visible in Asia and the western Pacific. Not our turn. New Moons always seem quiet because the night is dark, but together in the heavens, they are in recharge mode! Moon is getting infused by Sun’s Light! She is the liaison between Sun and Earth, us! This time they are exactly lined up with us, so expect some surprising Capricorn potency! Did you take that responsibility you said you would? Are you clear about your commitments? Are you keeping your calendar up to date? Moon rules our everyday life, taking care of the kids, food, giving us hugs. But she also collects and remembers as she goes throughout our community, so let’s Sun know what’s needed. She soothes his fiery Spirit, encourages him to stay Bright. She gets tired, Sun knows, so he burns away her worries, makes her secretly feel like the Mother of all Amazons! She winks, gives him a cute little curtsy, and she’s back to work. Who would have ever known that happened?  

Moon is in Capricorn, her opposite sign, so she acts like a liaison from her natural sign Cancer to Capricorn as well! Sun shines forever, rather impervious, and Capricorn, utterly dedicated, has no time for chit chat. Plus, Cap is the citadel protecting Sun. This conjoining with the Moon is likely the most receptive he will be. Moon is very sensitive; she syncs up with him. He knows her sincere caring and listens well, cherishes her insights. 

The New Moon has just sextiled Neptune, gathering in masses of perception. They are separating the wheat from the chaff that will help Saturn make his decisions when he sextiles Neptune. Sun is putting the light on what glows; Moon sings a little song of her own making when she likes a special little bit. Saturn is already very close to the sextile, only just over 2 degrees to go, so the process is in full bore.

Pluto is the most powerful, the last planet in Capricorn. Moon will feel her way by him 4:12 AM Pacific the next morning. She is fresh from the Sun, looks into some of the dark places, spreads a little Light in the key core places, gives him a hug. She listens to Pluto’s hum. He tells her what to be careful about, shoots her a little healing and on she goes. Sun himself gets there 3:36 AM Pacific on the 11th. That can be one of the most wealthy combinations in the zodiac! It can be major healing or transitioning right out of this life. Relationships are crucial. Do the right thing. Mercury makes the connection 12:01 PM Pacific the 18th. Believe me, it will be a crazy day for some. Wild things open the doors and Mercury will be there to take a look, OMG! That info will be recorded and passed along, possibly quite carefully. Could be wiser to observe and hold for later. If it’s revelation time, then go with it, but stay safe. All these connections will have root resonance in the Eclipse. Take some time that day to think what outcomes you would like and keep that in mind as you make your decisions.

Saturn closes to less than 3 degrees of Pluto when Saturn retrogrades, turns back, April 29, 2019. They don’t conjunct until January 12, 2020! That will be a heck of a time! The conjunction occurs in another Capricorn 5 Planet Stellium. Jupiter stands alone, but Sun, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury, 4 planets, are ALL WITHIN 3 DEGREES of each other! Since Pluto has been in Capricorn for some time, having Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, there too will certainly amplify the Capricorn factor. Saturn, the Builder, wants to make sure Pluto achieves his goals! Pluto might take the troublemakers down, could be a major power play, take over! Financially it could be our worst fears, depression like circumstances. Gird your loins! Saturn/Capricorn might bring the law and Pluto doesn’t get away with it anymore. Saturn with Pluto happens on average every 34 years. It will have prime significance to the 2020 Presidential election. 

Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, classically has to do with money, inheritances, mortgages, taxes, insurance, bankruptcy, funding, lifelong love/cheating, intimacy and sexuality, obsessions, murder/rape, medical research/healing – extremes. Vitally it has to do with toxins/poisons/sewage and clean water – purification. Capricorn/Saturn is one’s life work, community reputation, fathering/mentoring, elderhood. It is the Builder/architect, timing, being a realist, Law and Science, sustainability – exemplary wise use of resources, composers, the CEO or doing as you are told. 

So many important things are on the table. Call in your experts, get educated, share and learn, VOTE, encourage others to vote! Support leaders for change that affects us for the better, long term sustainability for our children. What we do now makes a difference to the 2020 outcome, and that to the future beyond.

Venus in Scorpio Outside the Stellium!

At the Full Moon Venus was sweet on Neptune. Now she has just been loving on Chiron. From the DreamMaker to the the Shaman. She brings Neptune’s spiritual impressions that Chiron may apply the latest ones to his healing work. It’s a smooth transference because they are both in Pisces. Chiron can be good in partnerships and business. Venus in Scorpio introduces valuable connections both for love and money! She sees what will bring the most rewards, has added her touch of beauty and class, charisma, and lots of love. Makes a difference. 

Venus will inconjunct, obliquely connect with, Uranus in Aries. They are so very different. Venus wants a personal connection; Uranus in Aries is looking far ahead, single handedly at times, rarely even wants a personal connection. She may catch a glimpse of what he sees, but she will likely remain on her track. Scorpio has power from within. Uranus has power from humanity. She could do fundraising for his amazing cause. His tribe could become her tribe, but the connection with him personally isn’t likely no matter how fascinating he is, and few catch her eye. But with or without him, she will find herself wondering about the road less traveled. She’s no wimp and Scorpio, though can be the deepest of partners, also likes being perfectly alone. Don’t be surprised if you find her at an unexpected place happily all by herself. On her new motorcycle.

Stretch your Spirit in every direction. Laugh with the Capricorn Wizard! S/he’ll take you there!

FULL Blue Moon!
New Moon!   

Full Blue Moon – Venus 0 Virgo Regulus, Jupiter Square Saturn!
Friday July 31, at 3:43 AM Pacific – 7 Aquarius 56

Leo Full Blue Moon July 31, 2015!

Blue Moon because in 7 out of every 19 years, two full moons will fall in the same calendar month and this is then! It is Jupiter’s last Full Moon in Leo! Fitting that the Sun is also in Leo, it’s own sign, celebrating Jupiter’s Leo passage.

It may be a Blue Moon, but this is a Golden time of year, summer magic at its finest! The nights are warm, the crickets are singing, the faeries are dancing. Abundant gardens are harvested and bounty stored. Seeds are drying and saved for next spring’s plantings.

Sun in Leo, is in it’s own sign! Moon in Aquarius, strange and holy! Both are fixed signs, supposed to stabilize. Leo would like a fixed income of pleasant spending size. Moon is the 27 day many moods, feminine, intuitive. Taking care of home, family, is a full time business, and those in commodities businesses have a lot on their plate! Aquarius is the Awakener, r/evolutionist, responding to world wide change. Their ‘fixity’ is their gathering of Souls, friends of the family, to make constant change possible. They make sure planes stay in the air, and the Internet stays free for the people. Leo puts the Lights on and the game is ON!

Sun and Moon most closely aspect Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Sun is inconjunct Neptune. Neptune is tidal, oceanic. Leo loves both laying in the smooth rocking boat on a quiet day, and being on top of the waves when times change. Musing and motoring. Neptune calls for complete immersion, being one with the moment. Empathy comes. Inconjuncts are peripheral. They call us to explore off the main course. They adjust our frequency. We aren’t alone, there are others to consider. Neptune may have thought you didn’t notice them at the ashram or the concert, but we did! Sun’s shining Light gives hope and courage. Seaside and ocean going businesses may take us on a new current.

Moon will be semi-sextile neighboring Neptune. Moon and Neptune are both empathic, but Aquarius is clairsentient, clear knowing, not necessarily so personally caring. But they will put you in their plan for the greater good. Neptune in Pisces is the planet of and the next sign after Aquarius. Aquarians are the great philanthropists. As they work among the people distributing the goods, seeing the people’s further needs, genius Aquarians are already tinkering with the parameters to find ways to help those needs too, and how to distribute more quickly. Their other goal, with Leo Sun present, is to engage the receivers, teach them how to do for themselves, be free, become givers themselves!

Observant Mercury in Leo will look in the corners. Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mercury in Leo focuses on the individual, how they think. Uranus wants to bring like thinkers together. Uranus in Aries is split second genius, do it now! There is a sense of time speeding up, and it is! The exact trine will be Aug 2, 7:50 AM Pacific. Inspiration at the Full Moon can be signed and sealed in your mind, but wait until some days after the Aug 3 Jupiter square Saturn has passed to do the actual paperwork.

Aug 3, one time aspect, Jupiter in Leo square Saturn in Scorpio

…is the major long term aspect underpinning the Full Moon. Leo and Scorpio both have love on their minds. Leo is the romantic; Scorpio mates for life. Leo is even flamboyant, while Scorpio generally prefers a quieter private venue. But either way, their love is intense. Jupiter cleans up well, but both Jupiter and Leo are athletic, so may be quite casual more of the time. Saturn is certain you should be respectful and in Scorpio, particularly a power dresser. However, there are some times when Saturn doesn’t care at all. Why should you pay for something fancy when this old one still has wearable miles in it?!

So, Love is a dance. Different as we are, we love each other, we help each other. Being loved makes us feel safe, let’s us clear away old hurts, let go of chronic patterns we forgot how we got. We spend money; we covet and hoard money, afraid to lose it, bound in a long term spiritual attitude of poverty. Sometimes you just have to send yourself a message all will be well, trust yourself, you are a valuable worthy person, spend it and the money you need will come.

Get to work! Jupiter in Leo is education; Saturn in Scorpio builds and hones skills to a fine potent level. Leo style, show people what you can do. Saturn style, start humble right where you are at. One on one, one day at a time, take another step forward. Jupiter in Leo makes plans. Write yours down, including a date to update the plan! Saturn in Scorpio is a hard worker and loves an uphill grade! See yourself leaning into it!  See More!

♦ Venus at 0 Virgo is retrograde conjunct Regulus the 2nd time this very day!

Zero is as new as it gets! Venus has been in a 12 DAY preview at ZERO VIRGO, giving a look at work wished to be done, services to be rendered, health to be cared for, budgeting and allocating of funds organized. New ways of doing things, new equipment that gives more time for other things we can do is seen as a potential blessing.

Venus returns to Leo at 8:27 AM Pacific, just after our Full Moon, carrying the Virgo dedication back with it! Leo is a creative sign that can perform the dramatization of the benefits of Virgo’s ideas. Leo sees in it’s heart how helpful these shortcuts can be and how quality makes a difference. Education is one of Leo’s fortes, along with inspiring coaching and directing! Unsung Virgos may find themselves being blessed with recognition they are surprised by!

Regulus wants the best too! Regulus is the King/Queen! The Gift needs to be that good. There is an element of splendid in the works. If you were the kingmaker, who would you make king? If you were bestowing the funding, where would you keenly place it for the maximum long term good? Virgo is a sign of reason. They want to know how it works and why. There is Divine Order and it is their department. Regulus was in Leo from 156/7 B.C. It went into Virgo 2011/12. It’s their turn, let them Rule!

Due to Venus’s retrograde half way back into Leo, Venus’s third and final conjunction with Regulus isn’t until Oct 8! That gives some time. Things inaugurated at this Full Moon will be part of what finishes then. Do your best now and plan ahead for the maturity, the completion, then. That will inaugurate Venus’s passage into Virgo and what we will be blessed to accomplish during Virgo. The skills we develop in Virgo, the fine crafted goods produced, services we render, will be our offering into the partnerships of Libra.

Leo New Moon – Leo Stellium, Venus Blessings, Jupiter Virgo! 
Friday August 14, at 7:53 AM Pacific – 21 Leo 31

Leo Lion Susan Seddon Boulet
The prodigious and remarkable Susan is about 74 years old now. This is said: Susan Seddon Boulet uses subtle colors and a unique fusion of forms to reflect the magical and spiritual powers of shamans.

This is Jupiter in Virgo’s first New Moon! Jupiter is still in the first degree of Virgo. We are really celebrating the Jupiter Leo to Virgo transition! FOUR planets in Leo is a big going away party recognizing all Jupiter has been doing this last year, and the beginnings of its time in Virgo. Leo is a big hearted teacher, and passes spiritual knowledge on to Jupiter in Virgo. Jupiter teaches also, spreading the story far and wide, publishing the great achievements. Virgo analysts, authors, critics, and organizers offer volumes of Encyclopædic insights. They put it all to work in systems that give public access whenever you are ready!

Four planets stellium in Leo – Mars, Moon & Sun with Venus
Moon, Sun and Venus trine Uranus!

Mars stands alone, but is potent in Leo, the king’s guardian warrior at his side. There is strength both of his own as well as the King’s blessing. Activist in behalf of individual right’s, Mars has the king’s respect for his prowess and past deeds, so speaks for the people to the king. Mars is quick to respond and leads the legion to victory. Agility and sheer forward motion dodges the bullets. Surprise and key attacks at the right places can take only a few to conquer many. There is nothing to stop this Mars.

Leo New Moon As Sun was in Moon’s sign last month, Moon is in Sun’s sign this month. Moon was in her own sign first; Sun is in his own sign this time. Every year we have this tremendous mutual infusion. There is a strengthening of each, a renewal. The exchange of masculine and feminine energies will be complete.

Venus retrograde lends her beauty as she walks the Blessing way with them while they all trine Uranus!

In Pacific times:

Aug 11  4:13 AM  Jupiter in Virgo
Aug 13   3:27 AM   Sun trine Uranus
Aug 14   5:36 AM   Moon trine Uranus
Aug 14  7:53 AM  New Moon 
Aug 14  11:25 AM  Moon conjunct Venus Rx
Aug 15   2:27 AM   Moon conjunct Jupiter
Aug 15  12:22 PM   Sun conjunct Venus Rx
Aug 19   9:44 AM   Venus Rx trine Uranus
Aug 19   9.50 AM   Venus inconjunct Chiron

Sun trine Uranus in Aries starts the close 6 day set. They rule opposite signs, Leo and Aquarius, yet a trine connects them differently and well. What was separation has become a flowing connection of Heart and Higher Mind. Heart is guided by facts for the whole; Mind is more loving, individually unique. Leo would act on it’s own, but Uranus brought all his friends! If it is a Leo party, it’s quite a crowd and a hell of an assortment of exotic enchanting beings! Leo loves dressups! They look pretty wild, and some are crazier than they look! But don’t entirely judge the book by its cover! A lot of Leos are upstanding citizens with a lot of reach, and Aquarian/Uranians are the geniuses behind the Internet and a lot of their science and inventions power your everyday life. They are so lightning fast in Aries, it may take you a few moments to get what they said. And, believe me, their bank account may be way more than yours!

Moon trine Uranus is the aspect just before the New Moon. Moon feels for those Uranians and their friends. She weaves among the beings, seeing what’s needed here and there. Sometimes it’s a listen, others need real nutrition, and much as Uranians have friends, they often feel like the odd one out, not sure of themselves. Moon sees the potential and can give the boost. It’s just like hugging their kids. Moon is on a 27 day schedule, constantly changing signs, moods. She knows change and is part of a family, a tribal group. Uranus is the sign of the Awakener, the ultimate change, part of Universal Community. Moon and Uranus can work well together. Uranus ups the amps when Moon is smother Mother, gets stuck in the dailies of life, holds back in the name of security.

As Sun brightened the New Moon in Cancer, this time She-Moon nurtures the busy Sun, sometimes tired from all the responsibilities and cheering others on. How many people can you coach? Over and over they bring their problems, some ready to solve them, others just taking a look at their future. Sometimes the love tank gets depleted. All healer, teachers, leaders need to take a rest time to time, yet fire signs have ignition and it’s hard to let go. They feel they are failing their hopeful followers and who knows when a key moment might be missed if you weren’t there for them? But sabbaticals were made by wise men. Take the cook with you and take some time just for yourself. You will come back better than ever. Going to the Cave of the Moon lets you consult your ancestors, the Matriarchal lineage, and perceive cycles of the future.

Moon conjuncts Venus then Jupiter, and Sun conjuncts Venus after the New Moon. Moon and Sun carry their energy forward to Venus retrograde. It isn’t that they are just passing Venus, she is coming to meet them! They bring the classic Male and Female energies in the sign of the Heart to Venus of Love and Beauty. She in the sign of the Heart, welcomes their infusion, and bestows her blessings. The Lunar Queen is more radiant and beautiful as she is in masculine Leo. The royal King is graciously personified, adorned with honors, coffers are plentiful, possibly meets his Fair Lady!

The Moon crossing with Venus adds her nurturing qualities to Venus’s beauty. Both feminine, Venus is more the Maiden, Moon is more Child or Matron. Beauty itself is a child of our Spirit. We grow it like anything else. A childlike grace is granted. A mother’s loving touch makes us confident to be ourselves, radiant. We feel valued, encouraged. We are grateful for Womanhood and the feminine aspect of men.

Venus knows what’s intrinsically special, worthwhile. Moon’s conjunct with Venus first, carries that insight to the conjunction with Jupiter who in turn expands on the principle. Be alert to what Moon with Venus brings. Moon and Jupiter are both so happy to keep on learning and growing. Lunar people are forever scholars and Jupiter teaches forever! Moon travels all the signs every 27 days without going anywhere, enriched to overflowing! Jupiter travels the world a sign a year, robust with what they have absorbed along the way, learning each sign deeply. Moon memorizes and shares tribal stories that Jupiter publishes for posterity. Lineage and cultures have their idiosyncrasies and their valuable contributions.

Venus retrograde makes her second trine to Uranus Aug 19. Changes made with grace, beauty, love, may go more quickly than expected. But the retrograde means this isn’t the final answer; it is a review of the first trine June 28, and there will be a third and last trine Sep 22! It’s been awhile, so check your appointment calendar to see what was going on back then that can be made better now, and better yet again Sep 22! Venus in Leo lights up what’s Uranian different. It may not be what you want to see, but a light on it makes it not so strange now that you can see it better and did see it once before and you are still here to tell the tale! In fact, there may be some use to it after all. Some changes grow on you. Venus may have been longing for something more special, and there it is! It may be a super smart solution, a friend that tickles your Soul, the joy of watching the stars!

SIX minutes later Aug 19 Venus Rx sums up this mini sequence with her inconjunct Chiron that is in turn semi-sextile Uranus. The trine to Uranus and inconjunct with Chiron are virtually one! Venus is the Love planet, but the Magi astrologers think Chiron is the Marriage planet! Love is one thing, marriage another. Inconjuncts are more associated with unraveling rather than getting together, so there may be love but no marriage. Usually things just slip away due to lack of attention. But if you are mindful, things may be redeemed. Since this is a fast moving aspect, only days, there may be a temporary disturbance, or if neglected, none at all, and only if it activates factors in your chart. If there is an exchange, Venus will look at Chiron to see what matters. Chiron is mythologically the wounded, healer, teacher. If Venus finds the wound too deep she may pass on by, finding it unattractive or feeling unable to help. She may admire the healer/teacher, but think this is not the time. Or she may be touched in spite of herself and find a remarkable truth. If it is a monetary matter, this is probably not the time to be partners. Move on respectfully and gracefully.

Please see more on the important Chiron semi-sextile Uranus that is part of the understory of this New Moon.

Mercury also is in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign. It’s not just the Gemini gathering of info, but what the info can do once it is collected and applied! Mercury is in this fascinating earth sign, gleaning pure particles, making the whole greater than the sum of the parts! Time saving, super productive!

Happy New Moon, and Blessed be by our Jupiter new in Virgo!

Venus Retrograde Pink Rose Baby's Breath

June 21, Summer Solstice, the day the Sun entered Cancer, Venus started her 3 retrograde phases! 

First phase June 21 to July 25 – 14 Leo to 0 Virgo
Retrograde July 25 to Sep 6, 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, 44 days
Phase three, Direct Sep 6 to Oct 9, 14 Leo to 0 Virgo, complete

Venus the planet of Love and Beauty is in Leo the sign of the Heart of Love. Virgo is the sign of Maidenhood, the primordial juicy Virgin, Purity. 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo are the degrees covered. All but one are in Leo. 0 is the degree of Initiation, new beginnings. We will be launching a new system of daily living (Virgo) founded by lots of Love and creativity (Leo)!

Venus in Leo goes from refined genteel tea ceremony caring to robust party-out rock-n-roll knock-me-down LOVE! Presents mean a lot, from the tiniest rosebud to the best sound system in LA or the finest art! The tallest heels, highest laced boots, the most magical sweeping hair, makeup to light the night! Sequins to diamonds, every star must shine! Princess or Queen, a canny lass knows what’s best!

On the home front it might look like the warmest heart in the world, the tastiest sweet treats in your lunch box. A loving sweetheart makes your life easy, fixes things before you ask, brings you little gifts that make your day, makes that I-love-you call, knows who you are and the good things you do and says so.

On the job it is making the world a more beautiful place, a touch of beauty that makes a difference, sells the product. Successful social gatherings share the pride of a job well done. Entertainment, performances exceed all expectations! Poetry tells the story, and if you are really lucky, you win the bet!

Venus in Virgo is the sweetest. Virgo wants to help. They will slave away day after day, long into the night. They care for the sick, clean up messes, manage your money, help the tenants, do yard maintenance, plant the veggie garden, feed the pets, make sure you have quality food. Whatever it is, they take the time and do more than most, better than anyone, in the shortest time! They are super natural organizers and save money, barter like a banshee. They can be Mother, Midwife, Mystic all rolled into one, all while writing the novel or the grant application!

And believe me, this is all possible with the Retrograde STATION at 0 Virgo, the degree of REGULUS the King, one of the four Royal Stars! Regulus has been in Leo until recently. Now in this feminine sign Virgo, having the only female symbol of the zodiac, the King/God has become Queen/Goddess! It is with great honor that this magical 0 degree station is held for TWELVE DAYS+, late July 18 to early July 30! It will be an initiation, a trial period, a time of considering Purity, the primordial essence of Virgo. It is an indwelling absorption, imbibing the perpetual intention to serve. It calls for an innocence, serving without judgment, gratitude for how each gives as they can at the time.

So first we have Leo the sign of kings, then Virgo at the degree of the king of kings!!! If some of your followers have been missing, call a meeting and give orders! :) You women claim your Queenhood, put on a flowers and herb wreath and enjoy every minute. Be of a generous Spirit for you have it to give. Claim the divine power of the Maiden Goddess Persephone. Be the Midwife/Healer who was trained by her Mother, and Mother’s Mother, and trains her Daughter. Be the One to start that tradition. Be kind in your power. Change is inevitable; it just might not happen at your pace.

Another way is to think about this is the background of the transition of Regulus from Leo to Virgo in 2011, how profound that was, still is. The Leo to Virgo link is the transformation that happens every month as the Moon moves from Leo to Virgo, and every year when the Sun transits from Leo to Virgo. It is symbolized by the Sphinx, head of a Virgin woman, body of a Lion! Being first, the Lion is the foundation, support for Virgo. We know the story of Centaurs (Sagittarius/Jupiter), half horse, half man. Well this is the woman part. The Sphinx is less talked about, a greater mystery for the time being. Women are still finding their way out of slavery, having no rights, being abused. Time to call on the Leo Lion’s strength, be grateful for its Heart and Light. As the horse gave men a greater range of freedom, the ‘enlightened’ Virgo heads the strength of the Lion and serves by choice.

RETROGRADE it all takes a turn. Values shift. Your body tells you it wants different. Age might become a factor. Your exercise routine may be interrupted and those chocolates add pounds. It’s 99% not the time for facelifts or elective procedures. Your wardrobe is all the wrong colors and no longer fits, but wait, don’t buy new while retrograde. A person you thought well of is not as expected after all. They aren’t lover material, and you decide you don’t like that job or want that part in the play either! A long ago abandoned lover returns and you don’t know whether to switch or cut bait! Due to unexpected events, the bet is entirely lost, party cancelled. Better to wait on big spending – furniture, remodeling, expensive landscaping, or even that house. You have changed; you don’t even want it anymore.

HEADS UP for late summer, early fall planning! July 25 to Sep 6, while Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, most wouldn’t choose this as falling-in-love-on-your-vacation time, nor a wedding date choice time. Retrogrades can be unstable with constant mind changes. With this bound in the chart of something started at this time, you always have a sense of unfinished business, there is constant reappraisal. Values aren’t settled. If you love that, the challenges and the Leo dramas it brings, have money to spare for when things change, then life is good, just gets better and better. If aspects are well for you, for you both, at that time, love always returns, better than ever! Leo loves big! If it is at the 0 degree Virgo time, it is probably better to choose a different time. Virgos have enough to do already, and function best in their own routines.

Generally, new needs are in the offing.

THREE PHASES Give it the time it takes. Venus is in the degrees that will be reassessed June 21 to July 25. It Retrogrades July 25, going from 0 Virgo to half way back into Leo, 14 Leo. It will cross this same area the third time when it goes Direct September 6 on to finish the pattern October 9. The whole process will take 3 months, 18 days.

Here’s another way to look at the Celestial Schedule with the Star Regulus!

7/18 Venus at Regulus 1st time
7/25 Venus retrograde near Regulus
7/31 Venus conjunct Regulus 2nd time, Aquarius full moon
8/4 Jupiter and Venus conjunct for the 2nd time at 28 Leo very close to Regulus
8/11 Jupiter arrives at Regulus
8/15 Venus inferior conjunction (Venus transitions to morning star)
10/8 Venus arrives at Regulus for the third time and continues forward
10/25 3rd Venus Jupiter conjunction

Venus also makes aspects with three planets, three times each during its retrograde cycle.

  1. June 28, Aug 19 continuous to Sep 22, the day before Autumn Equinox, Sun into Libra, Venus trines Uranus in Aries. Blessings of friends and community organizations, loves flights, beauty inventions, new hairstyle, astrology readings, extraordinary performances, singers, gifts – especially of the electronic kind! We don’t mind having a great aspect like this three times!
  2. June 30, Aug 19, Sep 21 Inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. These dates are traveling closely with the Trine Uranus dates. Venus in Leo wants love, Chiron wants marriage, but inconjuncts are often divorce due to an askew connection. Things just seem to slip apart. This aspect also calls money and business decisions into question. If timely significant adjustments are made the situation may be saved. Or, just let go.
  3. July 13, Aug 5, Square Saturn in Scorpio, Oct 10 Square Saturn in Sagittarius. In Scorpio, the first two squares, there may be loss of love or money whether stolen, misrepresented, a mistake, or greater expenses. The breakthrough may be not falling for the seduction again, realizing the payoff may not be very much, doing the tough work it takes, admitting reality, reducing expenses. There may be a necessary and natural grieving period. In Sagittarius, your direction may not go as planned, maybe a relief, but soon better! Be careful of over confidence, fearful reactionary over spending. Give it a trial time, modify sensibly. A first step with genuine good intention often leads to another though it may be a challenging passage. Have a backup plan to ease your mind.
As of June 21, many things will not turn out as anticipated, especially ones in the fixed signs, Taurus/Scorpio and Leo/Aquarius. Fixed sign’s purposes are to stabilize, not disrupt, yet some change is a must, as much as the growth from chrysalis to butterfly. Things you deliberately want to be changed, might need some help getting done, so instead of seeking a conclusion, let them ride, continue on and the retrograde will help loosen the roots and knots. What will be will be. Most assuredly, it will be better when all is said and done! Sometimes there is so much transformation you no longer recognize what it was when it all started! Maybe you won’t remember because the new Light has taken your breath away and filled your mind with new beauty and wonder!

Walk in Beauty.

2013 Leo Super Full Moon and New Moon!

Moonday July 22, ZERO Degree Leo/Aquarius SUPER FULL MOON at 11:15 AM Pacific 

A lot happens before this Super Moon that is the backdrop for it and part of its Newness! 

  • Rare Jupiter Grand Trine with Saturn and Neptune July 17 to 19!  The major results from this trine will give fullness and confidence, a foundation for further esteemed ventures!
  • Mars is keeping the rare trine going through July 20 and 22.  It trines Neptune, then Saturn the 20th, conjuncts Jupiter the 22nd.  Magic is afoot!
  • Mercury Retrograde Directs on the 20th – we are beginning to open forward again.  Stay thoughtful, pay attention, dance to the music!

Now, here, the day of our Full Moon, there is the every 26 to 27 months Mars conjunct Jupiter, and THREE Sign changes!

Mars is still fresh from its near midnight conjunction, merger, with Jupiter!  Jupiter is known for growth and expansion!  Add Mars, not shy at all, and there is an enormous energy boost!  In water sign Cancer, they may enjoy splashy summer water sports the most!  Mars is quite willing to take up Jupiter’s stand for proper ethics, especially for women, children, our homes.  This time is ripe for starting new projects, travels with first timers, new friends, to new places!  There is much to be gained from investing in coaching, trying out different teaching and training styles.  Promote your business or event!  Offer your leadership in your specialty!  At the very personal level, know there will be some hot opinions, religious and political passion and fury, and if you are lucky, hot sex!

5:41 am, Venus enters Virgo!  Venus in Virgo until Aug 16, makes beauty in all the right places!  Every detail enhances the next!  It’s worth the money.  Now that Mercury is direct, pick out your colors, styles, placements.  Relandscape with water-saver plants, catch up on your bookkeeping, decide on your healthcare, select your new pet, negotiate with your tenant/landlord, co-worker!  Go on your diet, buy your work and back to school clothes.  Sign up for specialty training with an expert whose good works you see.  Start your new job!

8:56 AM the Sun enters Leo!  It’s time to be the Star!  :)
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _  _  _ _ _ _ _ _
Finally, on the very day of the Sun entering Leo, only 8 minutes of a degree after the Moon enters Aquarius, the stage has been fully set, at 11:15 AM Pacific, we get our FULL MOON!!

Since it is at primal ZERO degrees, it represents new beginnings as well as the completion or peak of cycle that a Full Moon represents.  Venus, also at Zero degrees on the same day blesses the new contributions!  Leo wants it to come from the heart, and Venus has been in Leo before Virgo, so we are well primed!  The Moon at zero Aquarius is a little wild and out of its ken, but ever the observer, soaks up odd out ideas, just like gravy with a warm piece of fragrant bread!  She recognizes when people are a bit out of bounds and need a little extra TLC.  And to Moon, who loves family, Aquarius is just another great big family, the family of man!  Leo, happy to be there, cheers and wagers on its champion!

Two strong aspects with billy goat Saturn!  Both are adding their ‘she’ instincts.  Venus sweetens the day, wiggles close on the merit of the proven virtues of her offer.  Saturn in Scorpio is hell-bent on saving the day, no frivolous wasted time or effort, coming out on top.  There can be a tad of desperation, but the achievement is solid.  The obsession can pay off, surprisingly attractive results after all.  Moon, ruler of Saturn’s opposite sign Cancer, has a challenge on her hands.  She is both soft, compared to do-it-by-the-book Saturn, and devilishly unpredictable in Aquarius!  She moves fast, and Saturn hangs on tighter, being one who proves value through time.  She is whimsical, cycling about in a tizzy at times, or so it seems to Saturn.  It is her accurate intuition that gives her credibility after all.  Nothing beats it.  It’s free, and saves time.  Saturn approved!  Since Moon is in league with Venus, both at zero degrees, Moon can be guided by how earth Virgo Venus couches her practical ideas.  Saturn, an earth planet, values this sensible proposal.

Venus makes two more strong aspects!  She is coming along after the Jupiter trine Neptune, herself opposite Neptune.  The promise of the dream coming true is set, but for just now, it may seem out of reach until after the exact opposition July 26, and after the Mars opposite Pluto, and Sun square Saturn are complete July 27.  Then it may be clear sailing with Venus sextiling Jupiter July 28, trining Pluto July 30!  These two combinations can be loving, lucky and wealthy!   Don’t stop.  Work this sequence to its success!

This is 2013’s third and last Super Full Moon, in Aquarius – Sign of awakening, change!  The Lights are ON!  Full Moons bring culmination and release, like taking a huge lungful, holding it, then the big sigh and relaxation.  You’ve done your best, maxed out, the infusion complete.  What will be, will be.

Leo Full Moon 2013 Astrology Chart

 


Tuesday NEW MOON, Aug 6, 14 Leo at 2:51 PM Pacific 

Our Leo New Moon is the day before Jupiter is opposite Pluto!  Jupiter opposite Pluto is the first exact part of the outer planet Cardinal TSquare, the second part being Jupiter’s square to Uranus Aug 21!  Since the outer planets move slowly, the challenging T is in effect the whole time, in fact, it started July 17!  New Moon’s take us down deep, to the bottom of the cycle when the lights are out, the sky is darkest.  So this one in Leo, the sign of the SUN, Light personified, is a bit different.  There is Light in the form of a bright Presence.  Spirit walks.  Love abides.  The Stars are the Lights of many Suns, and they are brightest to us when it’s darkest!  They have always guided the mariners, and hope IS eternal.  This deep place of the Soul is in perfect harmony with Jupiter the Wayshower offering a way out from Pluto’s darkest Places.  And many times, the Dark is our best friend.  We are safe, quiet, comforted.  We hear things we didn’t pay attention to before.  We settle and divine what’s clear to do next.  Once revealed, Leo stands strong to carry it, Jupiter takes it on the road!

The outer planet Grand Water Trine is waning, but not entirely finished – Jupiter is still trine Chiron and the North Node.  4 Planets and the Nodes are interacting – Saturn and North Node in Scorpio, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, Jupiter in Cancer.  And they are interacting with the other planets in close degrees!  This is a fiery New Moon, but the chart has a lot of Water!  Both are highly intuitive in their own ways!  Fire is a first and fast responder, quick on its feet!  Leo is totally engaged when teaching and performing, gauging audience response, making course corrections instantly.  It senses the essence of relationships – romance or long-lasting, the quality of a liaison.  Water signs sense your feelings – Cancer knows past and familial ties, Scorpio knows how mates and money matters need healing, Pisces knows the nature of sorrows and the dreams to come.

This New Moon is forging on into new territory.  It is leaving the square with the nodes, the inconjunct to Chiron, and trine with Uranus, those all being at 12 degrees.  The nodes span Taurus, what we owned before, and Scorpio, what we could share with others, our mates.  Letting go of our own, to share, isn’t always easy.  Saturn is with the North Node setting the limits, maybe making the prenups.  Leo is often sooo generous, the Moon in Leo would give everything to nurture the love, so a balance is struck between Leo and Saturn – not too much, not stingy either.  There is a decision whether to be Leo lovers or Scorpio mates.  It’s tempting to step outside your relationship, but at what price?  The Jupiter trine the Node, hopes for honesty, forthright business, plans for happiness.  The Leo Moon/Sun just leaving Uranus in Aries, has had a taste of freedom, and it tastes good.  Aries is impetuous, but also rules purity, besides red, white is one of its colors.  Be clean.  Take care of one situation before leaping to another.  New is not the only criteria.  The inconjunct with Chiron calls for healing, then moving on in a good way.  Blessed be.
