Christmas Eve 2018
The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for Tuesday 26 March 2019
The spring sun dances wildly in Pisces, sign of regeneration, hope, renewal, and resurgence, at 10 degrees.
This intriguing constellation consists of two fish, one upright facing northward and the other, parallel ling the path of the sun, sports a crown or circlet of stars above its head. They are joined together by one shimmering band, linking them loosely. We immediately think of those two species ever at odds, Spirit and Soul, joined together by the silver cord of the body during life. How often does our spirit long to leap free into the sparkling air while our soul soars down into the purple deep, with only our body holding us in place? This fish tale is our story, the fish and the fishers of men!
This band which nets the Fish hosts the brightest stars of the whole constellation as a knot. It loops around the fish tails, (or tales!!) around the neck of the great Whale Cetus and under the outstretched arm of the Lamb.
The Pisces sun enlivens within us real empathy, sustaining compassion, and emotional alchemy. While in Pisces, the sun is at its most imaginative height, the peak of the creative process, filled with generosity, thoughtful, and kind! Dreamy, romantic, loving music and song, we feel no enmity, loving all unselfishly and unstintingly, offering sympathy when we have nothing else.
The names of the stars in the sign include Quickly Returning, The Redeemer, The Shepherd, Uniting, Upholding, The Multitude, The Company of Him Who Cometh, Posterity, and Multiplying. This is the sign you find most often representing any show business, managerial, or royal industry.
The sun rises today on the beautiful princess Andromeda The Enchained. This daughter of Men became a victim of others boastfulness and vanity, and was due to be sacrificed on the altar of vengeance! Luckily, a sea-monster died instead! The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The Set Free From Death; Delivered From the Grave; and The Assembled. Those people and relationships born under these stars are domestic, idealistic, and home loving with a real dislike of dissension and combativeness. The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.
The moon delves through dark, murky, smirky Scorpio, and the sun shimmers in watery, weepy, intense Pisces. With the moon in sullen, sulky Scorpio and the sun in Pisces, emotional, vulnerable, changeable, we need to be on our guard with our own selves. We are extra sensitive, extremely psychic, drawn to the mysteries and too open sensations; this is when we could easily sabotage our own best interests. Let's resolve to be on our best behavior toward each other and to us!! We are natural puzzles and become puzzling to those who love us. We can be overly sensitive to comments made offhandedly or in jest. Not 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.
Our early morning dreams are a hodge podge of odd smatterings of this and that, and may make no sense. By 5 01 AM Pacific, 8 01 AM eastern, we have misheard, or worse, misspoke!! We may wisely remain silent, and be thought a fool, rather than utter word and prove it. By 6 07 AM Pacific, 9 07 AM eastern, we have done just that, outing an idea whose time is the past century.
A good day to go Trappist!!
If we have kept a smile and kindness in our eyes, with no whisper from our lips, we receive a well earned reward at 7 37 PM Pacific, 10 37 PM eastern time.
At 9 30 PM Pacific, 12 30 AM Wednesday morning eastern time, the moon shoots into True Blue Sagittarius!!
It all gets bright and sparkling, from then on!!
This is the last week in March, with next Monday being the 1st of April, and next Friday being new moon. Sunday the 14th is Palm Sunday, and full moon falls on Good Friday the 19th. Sunday the 21st of April is Easter!! Late this year, but most welcome!
Heaven will come back from vacation on Thursday the 28th, and we can breathe easier!
On Wednesday the 10th of April Jupiter, the giant of the solar system and cosmic Santa Claus, turns retrograde in in sidereal Scorpio. No one knows what surprise gifts dredge up from the depths!! The jovial orb turns direct again on August 11th, so we have a most interesting summer!
Heaven continues its spin backwards in Oz. We are wise now to explore all options and ideas without acting upon them, till the 6th of April.
A bumpy ride, full of significant events!! Be awake and aware.
Mercury in Aquarius
Mercury, our orb of communication, falls backward through Aquarius. This is the perfect window to rethink, reimagine, reimage, reconceptualize. The whole fiasco in the air with Boeing is courtesy of this retrograde, and will last just about as long.
The one good thing Mercury offers in it's meander back through Aquarius is to bubble back up ideas we have been brewing on the back burner.
Mercury will spring right on the 28th of March in Aquarius, giving us a chance to activate all the ideograms we have drawn in our meditative phase!
Reentering Pisces on the 17th of April, Mercury will deliver that rush of color, intensity, vibrance, for which spring is famous.
That phantom moon which science swears could not exist but which astronomers have seen on many occasions, Vulcan, causes untold trouble in the waters ahead. Be warned and beware!
The golden girl of the cosmos, Venus, climbs to the Top of the zodiac, Capricorn. From on high she inspires loyalty to family, tradition, all things old and true!! This is an excellent avenue for assessing and aiming career advancement.
Mars rules in Aries, his own sign! We have no problem with exercise, with energy, with seeing our way clear!!
begins with clearning out the old scandals and dross. The king of planets, Jupiter is upending secrets and outting lies. The smell will reach high heaven!!
Back in the Saddle Again!
Saturn rides through sidereal Sagittarius, pointing us in the right direction when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.
At his best, Saturn 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.
Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching. We will discover this in 2018!
All the fuss is about just that, fuss.
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries, the sign of All or Nothing At All. Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!! As spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids. 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.
Fussy and fuzzy too!
Our faculties of Inspiration are under the bluegreen mists of Neptune, the orb of idealismand music, as it buoys through Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation. This inspires delightful forms and colors for a future that is more out of this world than of it.
Currently retrograde till November 24th, we find our minds crystal clear, our reasoningability a bit cold. A perfect window for studying without passion or prejudice, the most confusing and complicated of issues.
Truth will out!
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. 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 next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
Pluto will engage with the sun and with Venus on the 9 th of January 2018 in a powerful embrace which is bound to change feelings, values, and core beliefs, bringing to the surface all that is rotten and obstructive to be lanced, cleansed, purified, and healed. This may be a painful process but not likely violent, especially if we do not fight it, but go with the tides of heaven.
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, in Capricorn, highlights home and family, as well as tradition.
Romance or not?
Our spousal planette Juno backtracks through Aries. Even when she is in full reverse she leaps to the fore!
Our health and welfare issues
can be fixed if we want to take the time to go back and work on our inner emotional issues. With the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde in Pisces now, real success is possible when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Our social interchange
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, sits in the sign of the celestial Gardner, Virgo, where she rules.
Mom and things mom
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, bakes wonders in Libra!! A perfect place for successful entertaining.
This marks the third complete lunation for this year.
