Dwindling now, the Pisces moon shines down, continuing our rocking, rollicking, way out ride! The Virgo sun is the only thing that keeps us focused, and it is a powerful influence. We are painstaking, particular, and want proof of everything before we cast ourselves into the deep.
Let's be especially careful of our feet and toes, which are vulnerable now!
We are subtly aware of changes and their effects on our lives, our families, our daily activities. We may interpret these modifications as losses, things and people we have had to give up or cut down on. The minutia are never important till they add up to shift the whole picture! It happens today as the moon pops into Aries at 3 02 PM Pacific, 6 02 PM eastern time.
We must be alert to head injuries as these will be more deeply felt now through Saturday.
Thursday, much anticipated, starts with a surprise at 3 11 AM Pacific, 6 11 AM eastern time, no surprise to us though, eh, Star Travelers!! The rest of the world goes by, and we must fight that urge to snicker behind our hands, voicing within 'I told you so!!'. It isn't kind or Christian, but a hard temptation to fight!!
Talk about the blues!
Mercury is currently in sidereal Virgo. We listen and research matters on health, usually for family or coworkers, and seek out natural remedies and therapies.
That phantom moon which science swears could not exist but which astronomers have seen on many occassions, Vulcan, puts an extra shine on the sun.
The golden girl of the cosmos, Venus, reigns from her autumn home, Libra, all gold and grace and great dinner parties. Our tastes have never been more on target, more elegant, more pleasant!
Now is a great time to push forward on our social circle!!
Later this year, October through midmonth November, Venus will retrograde through sidereal Libra, where she rules from her autumn home. This is a splendid window to seek out forms of social grace, etiquette, civil exchange!!
Mighty Mars, orb of action and confidence, is whirling in organized, forward-thinking Capricorn where he is exalted, powerful, in charge! Completely certain of himself and his aims, he fills us with that same surety. What we do now, when it comes to family, job, profession, or governance, can really make a profound difference not only to us and our family, our corporate entity, but for everyone!!
is under the watchful Eye of mighty, benevolent Jupiter, the king of planets. Jupiter is at his jovial, genial best in sweet Libra where we are sure to assimilate the most graceful of social trends. Uplifting, elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming!
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.
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.
Jupiter is retrograde till just after the 4th of July, awakening old memories and reconnecting us with old times. On the 10th we lurch forward!
Saturn blocks his blocks now, turning around and changing his mind on important issues. Let's not get giddy when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views. Saturn will go direct on September 6th.
Pluto is also retrograde, keeping the demons in the dark, safely away from us till September 30th.
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, shoots through Sagittarius, and we have a flurry of knocks at the door.
Our spousal planette Juno sits persuasive and suave in Taurus, where she is actually happy for once!! Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed, so let's take advantage!
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, roars in Leo, and its all about family now.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, travels through the sign of the celestial Gardener, Virgo. We will be trying out our green thumb and canning the results!
This marks the tenth complete lunation for this year.
