Friday 26 May 2017
Our daystar rises at 10 degrees on the shoulder of the Celestial Bull whose unmistakable stars  were painted by Cro-Magnon deep in the caverns and grotto walls.  Cheerful industriousness, loyalty, fidelity, and an appreciation for all qualities under the sun are the most marked Taurean traits.  The nature of Taurus is that of the nature of the earth itself; so sacred, so varied, so holy, where does one begin?  With the Pleiades, on the shoulder, called the Beehive?  Or with the star called, 'Bullseye!'  since times so ancient we dare not date them.  


The nursery of the stars known as the Pleiades, and the Hyades, lie in Taurus.


The stars of the sign itself include A Leader of The Wounded, or The Slain;  Judge of The Congregation;  He Belongs To The Judge;  He Is at The Center of the Foundation; The Bull Coming or Ruling; The One Who Saves Mightily; The Head; The Traveler Who Comes to Save; The Station of Who Comes To Save;  Savior; The Leader; Governor; Wounded; Slain; Center; The Heap (Pleiades); The Congregation (Hyades); Belonging to the Judge; Abundance; Foundation; The Center; and The Turned Around.

Under the stars of the Celestial Bull we tend to plod along, seldom rushing, but we will get there, make no mistake!! We often take our time about it all and enjoy the experience for what it is.  We do it all at our own pace in our own way, and we can bank on it!  

The stars which frame the background of the sunrise are those of the celestial River Eridanus.  Many consider the Nile its earthly counterpart.  Those of a less Christian frame of mind call this the river of fire of Gods Wrath poured out upon His enemies.  The individual names for these stars include The River; The Flowing; The Waters Going Forth, The Afterpart of the River, and The Bent Down.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are deliberate, conservative, with unusually active minds and studious, forceful personalities.  The wise and prudent  will consider her actions and issues through this lens. 

That celestial pearl of light which focuses our Hearts and Minds is of a dual nature, and, so close to us, highlights our weaknesses as well as our commitment to blessing.  The moon grazes up out of Taurus all day and well into the evening, and we are so ready for summer!  With the moon in Taurus we are practical, economical, and sensitive to harmony.  We may shop, with an eye to price, but consider the best value for the money.  We are also at our most persuasive and most stubborn!  Not the time to spoil the ship for a pennys worth of tar!  Special care must be taken of the neck and throat, as these are at their most vulnerable at this transit.  Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.'  You won't die if you get a whiplash now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.

This marks the 6th complete lunation for this year.

Our early morning dreams are full of color, song, poetry and Inspiration!  We may breeze through an almost summer morning on a long weekend Friday with enthusiasm and grace!

Just before lunch on the west cost, 11 11 AM Pacific, 2 11 PM eastern time, we may remember the reason for our long weekend, a moment of silence tinged with sadness at the history of loss, savagery, inhumanity toward man.  Memorial Day is a sobering reminder of why we fight the good fight!  Let's keep in mind the Mars/Saturn opposition brings sudden sharp turns and iron doors from out of nowhere!  As Saturn today regresses to the 0 degree of Sagittarius, the Truth Seeker, the Traveler, the seeker of understanding of all foreign affairs, the moment is most apropos!  

Just after lunch, 12 49 PM Pacific, 3 49 PM eastern time, our spirits are revived and recharged by the civilizing effect of girlfriends, womenfolk, the wiser sex!  We may safely seek out feminine company to engage in active sports, like tennis or biking, as we will be feeling like moving!  One of the best things about today is the continuing conference between the planette Pallas and delightful Venus, traveling in Pisces.   Pallas is our wise self sister, our BFF, warrior princess and confidante, encouraging us to explore all that is beautiful in all the worlds.  Pallas is such an inspiration to artists and musicians in Pisces!  As Venus is atop Pallas now, our appreciation for beauty explodes, and we ourselves produce our masterpieces!  We are apt to hear much wisdom from other women, our best friends, our frienemies, our inner Medicine Woman, sometimes hard to swallow, and often disguised as criticism.  Be aware!

In the evening, 8 27 PM  Pacific, 11 27 PM eastern, the moon dances fresh and lively into Gemini, and all our cares go by the wayside.  With the moon in Gemini we are loquacious, socially interactive, curious, and mentally adroit.  This is the moon when we need each other the most, and become capable of doing our most good for others- or the most harm.  Not the time to take the low road and be the bad twin!!  Special care must be taken of the shoulders and lungs, as these are at their most vulnerable at this transit.  Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.'  You won't die if you get bronchitis now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as  fully, either.

Late night on the west coast, 9 53 PM Pacific, we may again find ourselves broody and solemn over a past event.  We may wisely draw wisdom from the memory and reap the reward, as by 11 18 PM Pacific, a sudden realization on this strikes us pink!

Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the east coast may just be drifting off into quiet slumber when a sudden thought wakens us for the night!

This weekend we observe Memorial Day in the USA on Monday the 29th.

Saturn is now at the 0 degree of Sagittarius.  Our desire to stop things or slow them down, or the obstacles which slow us down, will intensify till the full moon of June, the 9th.  Saturn is that planet which says NO!  I said NO!  That's Enough!! As Sagittarius is all about Truth, Justice, and the American Way, we can expect a great deal of hidden news to come tumbling out and make its way down the timeframe.  We ourselves will wisely pay close attention to all that we hear, as this is a sign and planet sensitive to sounds.  We may notice that the feeling of sadness or foreboding descends upon on in earnest now.  The perfect remedy for our plight is to take serious subjects and sober views now, eschewing any tendency toward prankishness or light heartedness for the time being.  This, too, shall quickly pass!  

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. 

A Word to the Wise:  on the full moon of June, the karmic planet will backspin at the 29th karmic degree of karmic Scorpio, providing a perfect window of opportunity to reconsider, reconnect, repair, and resolve all that is dark and hidden within us.  Saturn will direct in late summer, on the 28th of August, at 5 08 AM Pacific time. 

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.

Mighty Mars runs ahead of the sun in verdant, earthy Taurus at 28 degrees, a sign of great acts and deeds!  We feel the acceleration of the opposition of Mars to stalwart Saturn at 0 degrees of Sagittarius, from now till May 30th.  As Taurus is ruled by charming Venus, Taurus is an area which brings to our notice the finer and more organized sports, the ballet, dancing for sheer enjoyment.  We may notice the refreshing smells of the rich soil, the flowers in bloom, the crispness of fresh air!  Sagittarius is the realm of Jupiter, which is opposing Venus now too, so the effects in our life will be noticeable.  We may need to work twice as hard when it comes to being on time, especially when it comes to school, or to be in synch with any legal matters, and travel times may be hard to synchronize.  We may fume over having to hurry up and wait!  The wise will use this time to carefully think things through, balancing responsibilities with the need to drive forward.  Exercise is vitally important now, especially for our bones!!

The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, is in Taurus too, where she promotes healthful cuisine and methods.  We pay attention to our dietary needs now! 

Venus the Golden Girl herself is in her place of glory and exaltation in Pisces, to our benefit and our artistry!  We are at ease and inclusive now in all our social interactions.  We tend toward music, art, color, museums, concerts, surrounded by a crowd as diverse as we can find!  We are more sure of our financial ground, even if its a foot square.  The orb of grace is at the height of her power in Pisces, where she can freely express exquisite beauty in art, color, music, rhythm, in the subtle energy flows and in the grosser rivers of gold.  Venus retraces her steps through the sign of the Enchanted Fishes through the 1st of June, allowing us a summer season to unleash all the beauty within us into a sharable form! 

Also traveling in Pisces are the planettes Chiron, our Wounded Healer, and Pallas, our wise self and BFF, warrior princess and confidante, encouraging us to explore all that is beautiful in all the worlds.  Pallas is such an inspiration to artists and musicians in Pisces!  As Venus is atop Pallas now, our appreciation for beauty explodes, and we ourselves produce our masterpieces!  We are apt to hear much wisdom from other women, our best friends, our frienemies, our inner Medicine Woman, sometimes hard to swallow, and often disguised as criticism.  Be aware!

Mercury, the orb of communication, rockets through Aries, a considerable distance from the sun.  We find our thought processes crystal clear, if a bit quick!  The phantom moon Vulcan is now just perched on the shoulder of the great Bull, occluded by the sun.  Vulcan is the natural ruler of Taurus and as this sleek, elegant spot of fire occupies the Bull, we take stock of our inner possessions!  We cheerfully anticipate the good summer season with joyful natures now.

Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, is exploding through Aries the Spring Lamb in soccer style.  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.

Let's keep in mind that the Santa Claus of the solar system is also on a long vacation, till June 9th of this year, 2017, in the sign of sidereal Virgo.  We get the opportunity now to go back and examine the details, the fine print, the extra costs of everything we have been doing as far as health care, our employment necessities budget, our gifts to others, especially those we work with or who may serve us in some way.  This is neither the time for ingratitude, nor being nip cheesy; this vacation is all about balancing our reality!!

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.

Jupiter, the most Benefic of orbs, is retrograde, along with the Malefics Saturn and Pluto, now making a vague retro square.  We are going to find that we may be however temporarily stymied in reaching for what we want intensely, need deeply, and this can cause immediate frustration and acting out behavior in the poor in spirit.  The Wise will take this time, from now till August 14th, to examine at the deepest possible level, where our desire and want comes from, and what our real objective may be.  We can always find our greatest strength and stamina for perfect balance during trying times in our own natal sun, or in the power of Taurus!

The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, stays Home in Cancer, from which we derive security and comfort!


Todays Stock Market Surprise!

     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, backwards; 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.  This will prove a little difficult since Sagittarius is an impossibly optimistic sign, and we will keep a careful watch to make sure we don't over shoot our mark!

    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 well as 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 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 roundabouting the end of his journey through Virgo in the fourth house of endings, where we sense our way forward in retrospect.

    Mercury is in Aries in the tenth house of profession and government. Let's expect the unexpected all right. 

    Mars is in Taurus, in the Markets twelfth house of secret meetings and dark deeds; be aware!

    Venus is in emotional, colorful, splashy Pisces, in the tenth house of government, rules and dads everywhere.  Green light!! 

    The sun in Taurus in the markets eleventh house of unions, large groups, fellowship, signal all ahead go!

Tomorrows news today is brought to you by!
I am an astrologist who watches the market and wants to share my observations, that's all!  No advice on specific stocks is ever offered.  What you do with your money is your decision and your responsibility!
