Todays Surprises

Happy September!!
Happy Autumn!
Happy Birthday Virgo!!
This weekend the autumn sun shines from silvery Virgo, the celestial gardener, midrange, at 8 degrees. 
The stars of Virgo include Who Shall Come Down, the Branch Who Comes, Who is The Deliverer,  Seed of Corn (Spica), Who Shall Have Dominion, Gloriously Beautiful, and Who Carries.  The Ancients considered that the stellar year began with this sign, which championed motherhood, agriculture, and the feeding of the masses.  Hmmm...who else does that sound like???
Today the sun rises as a jewel against the stars of Beautiful Coma, the Desired One. These stars are actually the splendid tail of Leo the Lion!!  The individual names for these stars include The Longed For, The Desired, The Coming One.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are alert, ingenious, perceptive, studious, and forceful of personality.  The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.  The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for Monday 25 September 2017 

A Scorpio moon splinters the heavens behind the clouds.  With the moon in Scorpio we are sensitive, psychic, drawn to mysteries and sensations; this is when we solve puzzles and become puzzling to those who love us.  We can be overly sensitive to comments made offhandedly or in jest.  No the time to take things too seriously!  Special care must be taken of the generational and eliminatory organs, as these are at their most vulnerable now.  Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.'  You won't die if you get a hemorrhoid now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover  as fully, either.

Today commences the last week in September;  next Sunday is the 1st of October, and we feel the year end approach.  This may be a tough morning as we find our problems, snags, snarls, broods and moods have been waiting for our full attention with some relish.  By 7 36 AM Pacific, 10 36 AM eastern, we have either said or heard some hard words about not being on time, over deadline, or acting our shoe size instead of our age.  Let's resolve now to remain in possession of our calm and dignity.  

This may be quite difficult at we still feel the lingering affects of the feud between feisty Mars and nebulous Neptune.  This has led us a tricky dance which we will continue to feel till twilight.  Mars is no-nonsense, and Neptune is all blather.  Mars is also direct, impulsive, explosive, and Neptune is all about gas, the pervasive, the shape-shifter, the amorphous.  We may feel as if we absolutely must confront an issue, or state our case, or speak Truth to power.  Let's watch our language for the slightest hint of inflammatory rhetoric, which never becomes a Messenger.  We can take maximum advantage of this by calling out our addictions, our bad habits, our victim-consciousness, and telling it the cold hard truth. 

We either remember Who we are, or by 10 55 AM Pacific, 1 55 PM eastern, we may have lost a friend or admirer, or have a broken romance on our hands.  So avoidable!!
Later tonight, 9 36 PM Pacific, we realize all that has transpired today was in our best interests.  
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the east coast will see with an almost blinding clarity.
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the west coast will see a particular avenue which we may eschew or activity to curtail.
Tuesday is perfect for putting  it all back in order!!
As Christian knights on quest for the True Cross, the Great Work, or the Holy Grail, the Virgo knight casts a discerning eye on his surroundings and environs, watches what is served at table is the freshest and the finest, and keeps everything working like clockwork!   Virgo is a natural healer, an empath, drawn to the yellow-green energies which circulate through the ambient.   A Virgo knight knows the intricacies and powers of this energy to help release toxins from the body as well as from the thoughts.  The steadfast Virgo heart is the repository of many secret confessions!  The pristine character and principle of Virgo keep all secrets safe as if they were planted in the ground like a secret seed.
When anyone, but a Virgo in particular, feels resistant to change, or a lacking of ability to adapt, the answer is lime aide!  Too many negative thoughts, and the yellow-green vibration helps recycle the stinky energy into the soil, freeing the mind toward more positive thinking.
Rosemary and eucalyptus oils can be applied to candles, sachets, or any colorfast surface to create an atmosphere of balance, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Green and yellow foods in combination, like corn and okra, will aid the digestive system.
Mercury, the orb of communication and ideas, our thinking process, roars and pounces ahead in Leo.  We are all about furthering our family matters, making ourselves and our posse look good.   
The phantom moon Vulcan sprints into Virgo, making us aware of the minutia.  Let's be careful not to start a chain reaction!!! 
Venus, the charmer of the heavens, combs her beautiful hair in Leo, and shines like the sun itself. 
We may notice a boost of energy and inner fire when it comes right down to it; we may be feeling very protective of our cubs and lambs now too. Mighty Mars is moving through golden Leo, and we know how cats are about kittens!  Our Christian brothers may consider their part in birth control now too. 
Mars is in harsh aspect to Neptune until the 25th of September, and we may feel as if we absolutely must confront an issue, or state our case, or speak Truth to power.  Let's watch our language for the slightest hint of inflammatory rhetoric, which never becomes a Messenger
Mars is also in a confrontational aspect toward Neptune, and this can lead us a tricky dance.  Mars is no-nonsense, and Neptune is all blather.  Mars is also direct, impulsive, explosive, and Neptune is all about gas, the pervasive, the shape-shifter, the amorphous.  We can take maximum advantage of this by calling out our addictions, our bad habits, our victim-consciousness, and telling it the cold hard truth.
Mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now in Libra, enhances and expands all that is elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming.  What a year we have ahead!  We can look forward to the end of this month, as right now Jupiter is making a hard case against Uranus in Aries.  We will find many impossible, ridiculous excuses and delays and snarls pop up, and melt away, without our having to do much more than say, 'boo!'.  The Magnifier of the solar family brings more solutions than problems, and in Libra, lays the groundwork for happy new relationships and improvements on the old ones.  The snarl with Uranus will pass by the 30th of this month.  

Saturn, the karmic planet, in the karmic sign of Scorpio, is giving us some breathing space.  His hidden gifts include the allowance of time to think before facing our most stubborn and iron obstacles.  Stalwart Saturn, at his best, can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand.  Now is the time to pay attention to the eldest, wisest, and most noble of our friends and family with real regard for what they think, not just about us but about how things are shaping up in general. 

Saturn will reached the karmic 29th degree again on October 25th.  What we don't make up for this summer, we find waiting for us in late fall.  On the 5th of November Saturn will teeter at 0 degrees Sagittarius,  till the 15th, giving us plenty of time to discover the Truth and the truth, which will out, no matter what is shading it. 


Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, is exploding through Aries the Spring Lamb in soccer style, backwards.  Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action.  Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers!   This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Jupiters opposition to Uranus magnifies our opportunities for changes.
Neptune retrograde in Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation, brings us most of our ideas from the future itself.  We know this intuitively as we know what is about to happen, and bingo! it comes to pass!  This will continue as a trend till late November.  Make wise use of this, a precious gift, Star Travelers!
The combined opposition of Mars and Mercury to Neptune affects our daily life in sudden, impulsive ways, and should not be casually dismissed or ignored.  This way lies disaster, murder, suicide and madness.  

Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us, is turned about retrograde now, in the sign of true blue Sagittarius, till the 28th of September 2017.  Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there.  Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker.  Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality.  As Pluto turns direct on Thursday, we emerge more sure of ourselves!


There are three planets retrograde right now; Malefic Pluto in the Law Giver sign, nebulous Neptune in the sign of Brotherhood, Ka-Boom Uranus in All Ahead Full Aries.  We notice that the laws of the land, the religious sentiment, is not enough and that our travel plans have stalled.  Our interactions, though well intentioned, never work out the way we envision.  Our impulse to forge ahead is cut short, falling to the ground before us.  And now, we can't explain why this is even to ourselves.  Retrogrades are meant to give us time to mull over, plan, think ahead and think again.  If we were fortunate enough to be born during a retrograde phase of any orb, we are in touch with the future of that issue, and can be of enormous help to others who have trouble navigating!! Let's explore!! 


The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, spins through Virgo, the celestial gardener, much like Vesta herself.  If she doesn't co-rule Virgo, she is at home there certainly!  We may find we really enjoy our alone time now! 

Our spousal planette Juno journeys through Sagittarius, making this a great time to explore our options for the single life.  Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed.  Today she may break more than one friendship with a member of the other gender, and we can head her off by staying cool!

Splashing in Pisces is the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde now to go back and fix what needs work on our inner emotional issues with real success when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy. 

Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, jumps the hoop in Aries backwards.  This can bring back old friends, enemies, frienemeis, and more.  

The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, rests at Home in Cancer, where she revitalizes our kitchen, redecorates, and takes home cooking to a healing level!



This marks the 10th complete lunation for this year.

     I did warn you that things are definitely looking up!!  I must remark upon the Black Swan event known as the Trump Bump, and take my hat off to a miracle!

     Saturn, the planet of NO!!! teeters on the cusp of the markets sixth house of everyday every day; our daily routine and the things that give our time structure, schedules; of employees, fellow employees, those who work or serve us in some way; health, hygiene, and the way we worry about things, and best of all, small animals and pets.  If we have any investment in these areas, let's take a long long long hard look at our rationale, and maybe consider a further diversification.  Saturn will bounce around till the first of next year on this sensitive cusp, so we have time, the great gift of Saturn, to think, plan, proceed carefully.  As Saturn in Scorpio is a hard sign to understand and navigate, we must all be sure of our own motivations/

    Another of the major factors of which we must be carefully cognizant is Pluto in Sagittarius, retrograde in the sixth house of everyday every day, of employees, of open enemies.  Pluto brings out our zits and boils them to a head, which is necessary for cleanliness and health, and which really hurts and looks disgusting.  Sagittarius is the law and The Law, all thing foreign and foreign to us, and religion, and journeys.  I think you can see what the real root of the matter is here!  The election of Donald Trump, as well as the Brexit was ordained in the world, as are other Black Swan events, the lancing of long stagnant boils.

     Uranus, the wildcard of the zodiac, who goes KA-BOOM! when we least expect it, is sitting at the very top of the markets chart, the House of Glory.  In Aries, the electric blue orb will kick start our ambitions, our gumption and our extremes.  Well it sure has!

     Moving slowly in its folds of dream, Neptune in the eighth house of Aquarius is responsible for all the dire prognostications of the market crashing, burning, dying on the ice and never coming back.  

   Transiting Jupiter is in Libra, in the fourth house of endings, where we sense our way forward..

    Mercury is in Leo, in the second house of making money!  Let's get going while the going is good!!  Forge ahead with a pounce and a bounce!

    Mars is in Leo in the Markets second house of earned income.  All ahead full!!!

    Venus is in Leo, in the second house of earned income.  We can gather riches now like never before!

    The sun in Virgo in the third house of communication and ideas. We discern!!
