August 2011 Astrological Updates!

August 4, 2011

So what is happening astrologically in August 2011?

All time indicated are for Pacific Daylight Time.

*Note:  My Sacred Retreat for women is on the weekend of Oct 28-30.

See info at the end of the blog. 

Here are the Astrological basics:

Sun goes into Virgo at 4:21am on August 23rd.

Moon

  • New Moon – Sunday, August 28th at 5 Virgo at 8:04pm
  • Full Moon – Tuesday, August 24th at 20 Aquarius at 11:57am.

Mercury starts August at 01 degrees of Virgo

  • Goes Stationary retrograde on August 2nd at 1 Virgo at 8:50pm
  • Goes back into Leo on August 8th at 2:46am
  • Mercury goes stationary direct at 19 Leo on August 26th at 3:03pm
  • Ends the month at 20 degrees of Leo
  • Mercury is the ruling planet for Virgo and Gemini. S/he (Mercury is androgynous) loves being in Virgo, preferably in the garden.
  • Mercury in Leo retrograde.  Along with Mars in Cancer will cause copious amounts of passive aggressive political grandstanding. If you have a half-finished romance novel, dust it off and finish it.

Venus starts August at 5 degrees of Leo

  • Goes into Virgo on August 21th at 3:11pm
  • Ends the month at 12 degrees of Virgo
  • Venus in Leo is romance!  Do something special for your lover.

Mars starts August at 29 degrees of Gemini.

  • Goes into Cancer on August 3rdat 2:22am.
    • Ends the month at 19 degrees of Cancer.
    • In traditional astrology Mars is in its fall when in Cancer. He dislikes being in Cancer. A fiery planet in water. It also denotes a rise in patriotic fervor. Good for inventions using steam.  Watch out for passive aggressive behavior; be clear in your objections and grievances.

Jupiter starts August at 09 of Taurus

  • Goes Retrograde on August 30that 10 of Taurus
    • Ends the month Retrograde at 10 degrees of Taurus
    • Jupiter in Taurus is money, security, possessions.  People will reevaluate their needs according to the economic trends.  Our nation will be back at the drawing board on parts of the debt issue. Wall Street is inventing new ways to fleece the nation.

    • http://monevator.com/2011/05/17/how-a-synthetic-etf-works/  Check this out!  Call your congress person; let them know this way of business has to stop!

Saturn starts August at 012 Libra

  • Ends the month at 015 degrees of Libra
  • Saturn is exalted in Libra.  Libra is not his sign, but to him, it is like visiting a four star hotel.

Uranus starts August at 04 degrees of Aries Retrograde

  • Ends the month at 04 degrees of Aries Retrograde

Neptune starts August at 00 Pisces. Retrograde

  • Goes back into Aquarius on the 4th at 8:11pm.
  • End ends the month at 29 Aquarius. Retrograde

Pluto starts August at 05 Capricorn. Retrograde.

  • Ends the month retrograde at 05 Capricorn. Retrograde

Moons Mean Node start August at 21 Sagittarius

Some of the highlights of August:

August starts off with a bang!  On August 3-5th (to 4:57am on the 5th), the Cardinal Grand Cross is reactivated by Moon in Libra, Mars in Cancer, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. The polarity of the relationship, self and others-Aries/Libra and the polarity of home and country-Cancer/Capricorn are in play.

What is a Grand Cross?   It is when two planets are opposite of each other while being squared by two other planets that are also in opposition.

As I have discussed in earlier blogs, the Cardinal mode is ACTION, and action is what we have.  Last August the Cardinal Cross was activated and what happened? The dark side of the cross manifested as the mud slides in China, the 25,000 fires burning in Russia, the floods in Pakistan and Africa….18 million people displaced….and the start of the second financial dip.

The Cardinal Cross is active until 2015. Yips! The old system is being dismantled so the new way of living can be born.  Birth is painful.  But when it is over and done with there will hopefully be a mother and child asleep in each other’s arms.  We as a species must honor the Earth and her other inhabitants.

August 9-11: The energy for conflict is high both personally and for the world. Take that energy and make it work for you.  Remember steam can either burn you or drive an engine.

August 12-22: Love is in the air!  The Sun and Venus are in conjunction.  Summer parties will be wonderful! Not a great time for contracts.

Neptune is retrograde in Aquarius until November 09, 2011.

Neptune spends on average 14 years in a sign. From now until November, do the finishing touches on your social networks. Finish up group dogma. When Neptune goes into direct in November, Spirit will start to move big time. Spirituality will come back into vogue as well as ways to alter reality. Goes into Pisces February 4 2012.

 

All of August Uranus at 4 Aries retrograde squares Pluto at 5 Capricorn retrograde.

Fractures in the energetic web continue to widen and this gives other dimensions easier access to ours; for good or bad.

Lightworkers are very aware of the shift.  Many of us are seeing more light/dark energy masses with our physical eyes.

A word of caution, not all the beings that say they are of the light are of the light. Think you can tell the difference? Are you obsessing? Are you angry? Can not communicate well? Exhausted more so than usual? Feel that buzzing in your cells? Guess what, you have a new friend! These entities are like cockroaches; they become immune to our various protection techniques and find new way in to our fields.

Intention is not enough; use your tools; crystals, sygils, talisman, flower essences, salt and baking soda baths, get a treatment by a practitioner of another way, meditate and go to the line between the ying and the yang, sit in the heart of the Divine for at least half an hour a day. Most of all, talk to other Lightworkers and find out how the dark side and these entities are messing with them. P.S.  They are trying to kill us and destroy our community.  We of the light, all practitioners of the Divine Love, the holders of compassion and the true essence of all the major religions are the targets.  Love is the answer!

But I myself, being an Aries rising, am polishing up my light saber!

The Sabian Symbol for 5 Aries is a triangle with wings. Keynote; The capacity for self-transcending.

For 6 Capricorn: Ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods. Keynote; The need to complete any undertaking before seeking entrance to whatever is to be found beyond. (Note: you always read the next degree if it is not exact.)

In the regular world electronic warfare goes to new heights.

This month is not an easy one, more Earth shifts will happen as well as aggression.  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

RETREAT:  My next Women’s retreat will be the weekend of October 28-30, in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

This intimate retreat, limited to 12 women, is a time to connect with the Divine Feminine and to have fun!
The retreat is located at Salamander Camp which is less than 10 minutes outside of Los Gatos in the Santa Cruz Mountains; but you would never know you were near a city.
The cost is $275 for three days and two nights, if paid in full prior to September 15th.  The cost is $300.00 if paid in full from September 16th to October 15th and $325 from October 16th to the start of the retreat.

The price includes all your meals and lodging. The meals are delicious and organic. Please tell me if you have any dietary restrictions. The Divine Dancing Diva Miss Dasha is our chef.

Arrival: Friday 2-5pm Depart: Sunday 5 pm

The following article is from one of the best astrologers on the planet, Bernadette Brady.  Please go to http://www.zyntara.com to receive her free newsletter.

Saros Series 13 South New
A new eclipse series joins us
By Bernadette Brady M.A.

Inex-Saros cycle lunar eclipse panorama, years...

Image via Wikipedia

Eclipses run in cycles and these cycles were discovered in 747 BCE by the Mesopotamian astrologer/astronomers. These cycles were called Saros Series or cycles by the Greek lexicographer Suidas in the 10th century (the word saros means repetition or to be repeated). Once a cycle begins it will produce an eclipse every 18 years 9-11 days later (depending on the number of leap years involved). Each eclipse in the series will occur 1/2 to a full

degree closer or further to the actual nodal axis. When the series begins it will produce an eclipse which is 15-to-18 degrees in front of the nodal axis. (For example, this particular eclipse on the 1st July will be at 9 Cancer and the node is at 22 Gemini). Every subsequent eclipse in the series will be just a little bit closer to the node. It will eventually produce an eclipse conjunct the transiting node in 650 years. This eclipse will occur over the equator and it will be total. After this ‘middle’ eclipse the series produces eclipses around 1 degree behind the nodal axis and eventually in another 650 years it will produce a tiny partial eclipse which will be around 15 degrees behind the nodal axis.

This new series will, like other series, contain 72 eclipses (+/- 1). It will produce its first eclipse on 1st July 2011 and will not produce its last eclipse until 3237. A Saros Series is most relevant for mundane astrology, not only countries but ideas and concepts. There are 38 – 39 families of eclipses active at any one historical period. [All of this eclipse information is covered in detail in my book ‘Predictive Astrology – the Eagle and the Lark’. If you own this book, cut out this section and stick it into the book so you have it as reference material.] This new series will be Saros Series 13 New South (to use the Jansky naming system) or Saros Series 156 (van den Bergh numbering system).

This series is ‘born’ on the 1st July 2011 and as I pointed out in the last newsletter,

 http://www.zyntara.com/VisualAstrologyNewsletters/van_May2011/van_may2011.html

it captures in its birth chart a Grand Cross involving the New Moon in Cancer, Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. The closest midpoints (45 degree module) are Pluto on the midpoint of Mars/Jupiter and Jupiter on the midpoint of The Sun/Neptune.

Saturn eclipsing the sun, seen from behind fro...

This theme of this entire series will be about undertaking and or completing large endeavors. At a personal level hard struggles begin to resolve, old thorny issues begin to untangle and the too-hard problems start to become clear.

Added to this Grand Cross is the energy of the tightest midpoints and these are Pluto to Mars/Jupiter which suggests extraordinary effort and achievement PLUS Jupiter to New Moon/Neptune which brings long and difficult issues to gentle conclusions through inspiration or the insight of a bright idea.

So if you are stuck or jammed on an issue at the moment apply your mind and give yourself permission to ‘think outside the box’ or do a little active imagination to help find solutions. Old problems can be solved in this period.

This eclipse is also happening amongst the stars of Gemini which, within the Assyrian astrologer/priests’ letters to their kings, usually indicates the death of a king or the ending of an issue. So endings… but endings of problems, the ending of ‘old’ things which then allows a fresh approach to life.

In the year 3237, astrologers will look back and see what themes began around July 1, 2011.  News stories that start six months on either side of the Saros start date will have an influence; the closer to the date the stronger.

An interesting news article I saw was particles of anti-matter have been captured! Maybe this is the beginning of the fuel that will launch on species into deep space….like Star Trek.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/110694-CERN-Scientists-Capture-Antimatter-For-Record-16-Minutes

In the May 2011 blog I wrote: The mixture of the Raymond Davis incident and the attack Seal Team Six combination, along with the nuclear backpacks will have blowback by the Solstice, June 21st.

Nuclear backpacks?  Yes, a cute little device developed by the Soviets….many of these devices was not accounted for after the USSR collapsed.

Please read the article below.  The people trying to sell the Russian made Uranium 235 were captured!  Lucky us!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13968903

With Uranus going retrograde on the 9th, you will hear many stories about electrical, computer and car problems.  In esoteric astrology Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury…..so Uranus retro has a similar effect.  It will be interesting to see if anything happens to the Grid and Web the weekend of the 9th.

RETREAT:  My next Women’s retreat will be the weekend of October 28-30 in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

This is an intimate retreat for 12 women only!

This retreat is a time for women to connect with the Divine Feminine.

It is a time for women to explore their personal power and spirit.

The retreat is located at Salamander Camp which is less than 10 minutes outside of Los Gatos in the Santa Cruz Mountains; you would never know you were near a city.

The price includes all your meals and lodging.  The meals are delicious and organic. Please tell me if you have any dietary restrictions so we can make you your own delicious food.

Arrival: Friday 2-5pm, depart: Sunday 5 pm

$300.00 is you pay in full from October 1st to October 15th.

$325.00 after October 15th.

June 2011 Astrology

June 8, 2011

So what is happening astrologically in June 2011?

All time indicated are for Pacific Daylight Savings.

Here are the Astrological basics:

Sun

The Sun goes into Cancer on Tuesday, June 21th at 10:17 am. The Solstice!  The longest day of the year.

MOON

  • New MoonSolar eclipse. 11 degrees of Gemini on Wednesday, June 1st   at 2:03 pm.
  • Full Moon Lunar eclipse. 24 degrees Sagittarius on Wednesday, June 15th at 1:14 pm. The Full moon is called the Planting Moon in Neo Pagan – Wiccan, and the Strawberry Moon in N/E Native American).
  • Note:  The New and Full Moon are usually the polar opposite signs. This month it is Gemini and Sagittarius.  These two signs live respectively in the 3rd house and 9th house in the Natural chart.  Some of the areas brought up this month will be:
  1. Communications.
  2. Schooling.
  3. 3.     Travel.
  4. Religion
  5. Law and order
  6. Sibling and neighbors.
  7. Integration and the big picture.

Mercury starts June at 28 degrees of Taurus

  • Mercury goes into Cancer on Thursday June 16th at 12:09 pm.
  • Ends the month at 28 Cancer.
  • Mercury in Cancer. Communications are more intuitive this month.  You will feel intuitive information in your gut/stomach.  Listen to it!
  • If you have Mercury in Cancer or the fourth house this will affect you more than others.  To help offset the negative side of Cancer energy wear a pearl or seashells.

Venus starts June at 21 degrees of Taurus

  • Venus goes into Gemini Thursday, June 9th at 7:23 am
  • Gemini is ruled by Mercury.  Write that love story!  Lovers will want to talk now.  So if you had a spat during Taurus, communications can happen now. Or in some cases you will find that you have two love interests.
  • Venus ends June at 26 degrees of  Gemini
  • If you have Venus in Gemini or the third house. This will affect you more.  Find time to do that creative writing. Siblings, neighbors and very close friends will be communicative.

Mars starts June at 16 degrees of Taurus

  • Goes into Gemini on Monday, June 20that 7:50 pm.
    • Ends the month at 07 degrees of Gemini.
    • If you have Mars in Gemini or the third house you will be a Busy Bee, very talkative and able to write a lot faster. Watch out for verbal attacks.  Wear red agate to lessen the effect of negative Mars in Gemini.

Since both Venus and Mars are in Gemini. Lovers’ communication pro and con will be in play this month!

Jupiter starts June at 29 degrees of Aries

  • Goes into Taurus on Saturday, June 04th  at 6:56 am
    • Ends the month at 05 degrees of Taurus
    • If you have Jupiter in Taurus or the second house this is a great time to make money, get that job!

Jupiter in Taurus, more caution in stock market…it slows down.

Saturn Retrograde starts June at 11 Libra

  • Goes direct Sunday, June 12that 8:52 pm.
    • Ends the month at 11 degrees of Libra
    • If you have Saturn in Libra or the 7th house relationships of all kinds will be tested.  Saturn is the lord of Karma, fear, tests and integrity….to name a few. Listen to your heart and be true to yourself and diplomatic to others.
    • Saturn is exalted in Libra.  Libra is not his sign, but to him this sign is like visiting a four star hotel.

Uranus starts June at 04 degrees of Aries

  • Ends the month at 05 degrees of Aries
  • Where ever Aries lives in your chart be prepared for:
  1. Unpredictable change
  2. Mr. Toad’s wild ride!
  3. Go with the flow; be prepared to make alternate plans.

Neptune starts June at 01 Pisces.

  • Goes retrograde Friday, June 3rd at 00:28 am
    • Ends the month at 01 Pisces
    • Neptuneis the co-ruler of Pisces

Pluto starts June at 07 Capricorn Retrograde.

  • Ends the month Retrograde at 06 Capricorn.
  1. As Pluto continues to go through the first 10 degrees of Capricorn (this is in effect until Jan 20 2013), more governments will fall worldwide and others will have to change the way they operate.  This is a time of immense change!

Moons Mean Node start May at 24 Sagittarius

Topics for June:

The following is from Georgia Stathis concerning the 3 eclipses within a month.

www.starcycles.com

Georgia is an awesome financial astrologer!

I thought you’d like to know that as of June 1, 2011 we are starting the three-eclipse cycle of the summer. The first solar eclipse appears on June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse (an intense New Moon, signifying new beginnings and endings) is at 11 ° of Gemini. For those of you born in the middle of the signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, this is particularly life changing.

The last time this series of eclipses hit were in June 1992, about 19 years ago. I always ask people what positive changes began following the eclipses of the summer of 1992. Were you in flux with changes all around you? I suspect so. This eclipse hitting this particular group of people changes your work, your jobs, your attitudes towards partnerships and your attitude about your own health and how you need to take better care of yourselves.

The next eclipse, even more intense, is the Total Eclipse (Full Moon) on June 15 at 24° of Sagittarius and Gemini…. Again, those with lots of planets between 24° and 30° of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces face more changes…always for the better…because life doesn’t sit still, it moves forward and thank goodness, this is a more flexible group. This eclipse calls for more expression of self, either through communications, writing, studying and exchanging ideas.

The last eclipse of the summer is July 1 at 9° Cancer. This is what I like to call the ‘leftover’ eclipse…the eclipse of completion for the struggles of the last two years. Those born in the first eleven days of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries are about to make those changes they’ve been trying to make for two years now!!

Yes, that could mean moving, changing the format of what you call family, starting new businesses for which you’ve researched the last two years. You may not see all of the results of these changes until October (since a lot of eclipses trigger about 90 days later), but be prepared — change for your group is coming fast and hard. How exciting!! Welcome it.

And remember — if you keep doing the same things — you keep getting the same things!

On Saturday, Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, enters the sign of Taurus, which really likes comfort, flavors, good food and luxury. It is true, prices could be higher, but with Jupiter in Taurus, it also suggests that there is more of an ability to acquire the things you’ve been trying to acquire — and with help from others — just remember — giving is a two way street. As the week continues, you may feel a little tired, with the eclipses, the end of Jupiter in Aries and both Neptune and Pisces going retrograde this week.

If you are tired, take that nap. If you don’t want to leave your house, then don’t. Rest, regroup and get a good restart…. Next week should perk you up.

Peace to all!

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

To let you know that I walk the talk, I became my neighborhood watch captain.

UCM May 2011 Astrology Update

May 20, 2011

So what is happening astrologically in May 2011?

All time indicated are for Pacific Daylight Savings.

Here are the Astrological basics:

Sun

The Sun goes into Gemini on Wednesday, May 21th at 2:21 am

MOON

  • New Moon – 12 degrees of Taurus on Monday, May 2nd  at 11:51 pm
  • Full Moon (Grass Moon in Neo Pagan – Wiccan, Flower Moon in N/E Native American) – Tuesday, May 17th at 26 degrees Scorpio at 4:09 am.
  • Note:  The New and Full Moon are usually the polar opposite signs. This month it is Taurus and Scorpio.  These two signs live respectively in the 2st house and 8th house in the Natural chart.  Some of the areas brought up this month will be:
  1. Money. All aspects from how you make it to your debts.
  2. Self-worth, self-esteem.
  3. 3.     Death and transformation
  4. The practical vs. the unknown.

Mercury starts May at 16 degrees of Aries

  • The Shadow period of Mercury Retrograde is in effect until May 7th.
  • Mercury goes into Taurus Sunday May 15th at 4:18 pm.
  • Mercury in Taurus. Communications are slower, more practical, and people are reluctant to change ideas. If you are working on a project that needs others approval and you do not want the project to slow down, get it done prior to the 15th.
  • If you have Mercury in Taurus or the second house this will affect you more than others.  Jade or Emerald are good stones to wear to help offset the negative side of Taurus energy.
  • Mercury ends the month at 26 degrees of Taurus.

Venus starts May at 13 degrees of Aries

  • Goes into Taurus Sunday, May 15th at 3:12 pm
  • Taurus is ruled by Venus.  She likes it! Relationships start to mellow out after last month’s Aries fire.
  • Venus leaves May at 20 degrees of  Taurus
  • If you have Venus in Taurus or the second house you can make or spend money on things that make you feel good; like sensual soft clothing or gourmet foods.
  • Note that both Mercury and Venus go into Taurus on the same day.  A good indicator for the arts. Make those crafts, write that cookbook!

Mars starts May at 23 degrees of Aries

  • Goes into Taurus on Wednesday May 11that 00:04 am.
    • Ends the month at 15 degrees of Taurus.
    • If you have Mars in Taurus or the second house you will be able to concentrate on a goal, push through obstacles to achieve what you need to do.  Watch out for jealousy. Mars in Taurus is like Ferdinand the Bull, slow to anger but volatile when pushed over the edge.

Jupiter starts May at 23 degrees of Aries

  • Ends the month at 29 degrees of Aries
  1. New ways to make money
  2. New laws

Saturn Retrograde starts May at 12 Libra

  • Ends the month at 11 degrees of Libra Retrograde
  • Saturn is exalted in Libra.  Libra is not his sign, but to him this sign is like visiting a four star hotel.

Uranus starts May at 03 degrees of Aries

  • Ends the month at 04 degrees of Aries
  1. Unpredictable change
  2. Go with the flow; be prepared to make alternate plans.

Neptune starts May at 01 Pisces.

  • Ends the month at 01 Pisces
  • Neptuneis the co-ruler of Pisces

Pluto starts May at 07 Capricorn Retrograde.

  • Ends the month Retrograde at 07 Capricorn.
  1. As Pluto continues to go through the first 10 degrees of Capricorn (this is in effect until Jan 20 2013), more governments will fall worldwide and others will have to change the way they operate.  This is a time of immense change!

Moons Mean Node start May at 26 Sagittarius

Topics for May:

RANT:

May 1st…..Osama bye-bye or another mass deception?  Once again the USA engaged in a major military action on one of the eight high holy days of the Pagans….hmmmm. Who are these masked men and women behind the curtain of deception and death?  Bet they have weird handshakes.

There are two times during the crossovers where Magick can be used for incredible manifestations of good or evil.  The Energy exists; we have the choice and the free will to create our existence.

The first group is:

The evening prior, and day of May, August, November and February 1st.

The second group is:

The 15th degree of the Fixed Signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.  The day this degree happens is approximately the 5th day of the above months… It varies slightly.

Note: I used Magick with the “k” to distinguish it from stage Magic, not the dark stuff.

Let us take a little journey back to the Pagan holidays prior to May first.

Pagan new year, Dec 21, 2011, the holy day called Yule.  What links can we find on the neutralization project that happened in Abbottabad, Pakistan on the first of May?

NATO Denies U.S. Military Is Pushing for Pakistan Raids

Tuesday, December 21, 2010
by Patrick Quinn, Associated Press

Kabul, Afghanistan (AP) – The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan on Tuesday denied reports that American forces are pushing to expand special operations raids into tribal areas of neighboring Pakistan where Islamist militants are known to find refuge.

For the complete article go to:

But wait there is more.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/21/world/asia/21intel.html?hp

Quote from above link: Ground operations in Pakistan remain controversial in Washington, and there may be a debate over the proposal. One senior administration official said he was not in favor of cross-border operations — which he said have been generally “counterproductive” — unless they were directed against top leaders of Al Qaeda. He expressed concern that political fallout in Pakistan could negate any tactical gains.

By Jane Cowan, Peter Cave and wires

Coalition strikes have succeeded in crippling the air defenses of Moamar Gaddafi’s Libyan regime and a no-fly zone is effectively in place over the country, the US military says.

I digress kind of….attacking Libya is a major military action but I am following a thread on Pakistan.

http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2011/03/21/jailed-cia-contractor-freed-in-pakistan

Raymond Davis, a former Special Forces soldier working clandestinely for the CIA, was freed from Pakistani custody last week, after a prolonged diplomatic row between Washington and Islamabad.

Gee, I wonder if he belonged to Seal Team Six? No? ODA? Who were the men killed by Davis? Osama’s buddies?

http://my.firedoglake.com/jimwhite/2011/02/01/why-is-darrell-issa-in-pakistan-asking-president-pm-for-release-of-raymond-davis/#comments

The mixture of the Raymond Davis incident and the attack Seal Team Six combination, along with the nuclear backpacks will have blowback by the Solstice, June 21st.

Nuclear backpacks?  Yes, a cute little device developed by the Soviets….many of these devices were not accounted for after the USSR collapsed.

End of rant.  Now for something completely different.

Mercury and Venus in Taurus:

On May 15th both Mercury and Venus move into Taurus. Great for creative writing poetry, love letters and how to make books on subjects like crafts, making jewelry, soaps or other sensual products.

This combination will be in the fifth house of the Sibley USA chart. The stock market will continue its illusionary rise….there may be some creative financing going on in our government….imagine that!  It will be a good month for finances on paper.  There will be a stock market rally.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our government had to post every dime it spent on a website?

Peace to all!

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

April 2011 Astrology blog

April 6, 2011

So what is happening astrologically in April 2011?

All time indicated are for Pacific Daylight Savings.

Here are the Astrological basics:

Sun

The Sun goes into Taurus on Wednesday, April 20th at 3:18 am

MOON

  • New Moon – 13 degrees of Aries on Sunday, April 3th at 7:32 am
  • Full Moon (Awakening Moon in old Wiccan, Pink Moon in N/E Native American) – Sunday, April 17th at 27 degrees Libra at 7:44 pm.
  • Note:  The New and Full Moon are usually the polar opposite signs. This month it is Aries and Libra.  These two signs live respectively in the 1st house and 7th house in the Natural chart.  Some of the areas brought up will be;
  1. Independence vs. relationship issues
  2. Meeting new people in your personal and in business life
  3. 3. The need for action/aggression while maintaining strategy and diplomacy
  4. Us vs. Them plays both personally and socially in our live.

Mercury Retrograde starts April at 24 degrees of Aries.

  • Goes Direct on Saturday, April 23rd at 3:04 am. Shadow period in play for two weeks
  • Ends the month at 15 degrees of Aries
  • Mercury in Aries; think before you speak.  Remember what you say can not be put back in the bottle.
  • If you have Mercury in Aries or the first house this will affect you more than others.  Red Agate is a good stone to wear to help offset the Aries energy. Ruby if you have it also works well.

Venus starts April at 07 degrees of Pisces

  • Goes into Aries Wednesday,  April 20th at 9:06 pm
  • Ends the month at 12 degrees of  Aries
  1. This month the “bird and bee need” will be soooo strong!  Strong sexual energy.
  2. Strong attractions and jealousy

Mars starts April at 00 degrees of Aries

  • Ends the month at 22 degrees of Aries.
  1. Slow down! Don’t rush!
  2. Tempers are tested!
  3. More physical energy
  4. More physical fights

Jupiter starts April at 15 degrees of Aries

  • Ends the month at 22 degrees of Aries
  1. New ways to make money
  2. New laws

Saturn Retrograde starts April at 14 Libra

  • Ends the month at 12 degrees of Libra Retrograde
  • Saturn is exalted in Libra.  Libra is not his sign, but to him this sign is like visiting a four star hotel.

Uranus starts April at 01 degrees of Aries

  • Ends the month at 03 degrees of Aries
  1. Unpredictable change
  2. Go with the flow; be prepared to make alternate plans.

Neptune starts April at 30 Aquarius.

  • Neptune is ending its 14 years journey through Aquarius.
  • Goes into Pisces on April 4th at 6:36 am 
  • Neptune is the co-ruler of Pisces

Pluto starts April at 07 Capricorn.

  • Goes Stationary Retrograde on Saturday, April 9th at 1:49 am
  • Ends the month Retrograde at 07 Capricorn.
  1. As Pluto continues to go through the first 10 degrees of Capricorn more governments will fall world wide and others will have to change the way they operated.  This is a time of immense change!

Moons Mean Node start March at 28 Sagittarius

Topics for April:

1.  Last month I wrote: Uranus conjoins the IC (the fourth house cusp) of the USA Sibyl chart on the March 20th, the day of the Vernal equinox; 00 degrees of Aries. There will be a major event very close to this date.

I think jumping into another military action would qualify as a Major Event.

And once again we did a military action on one of the eight high holy days of the Pagan people; the Spring Equinox…..not to mention is was New Years Day for many people in the Middle East.  I am not looking forward to the blowback from this.

As a former strategic intelligence analyst for our military I am concerned about our nation being in three military actions, three fronts at the same time.  In classic warfare strategy, getting a nation to do this is a sure bet in leading to its demise.

2.… A little bit of Aries in the night! (play of words on a soliloquy from Shakespeare’s Henry the 5th.)

Did you notice how many of the planets are in the sign of Aries this month??? Aries also know as Mr. War or Action Jackson!

Yes, Aries is also about new beginnings, desire and creativity but with Pluto going Stationary Retrograde while squaring Uranus and Mars and Jupiter conjoining at 22 degrees of Aries at the end of the month, and April 20th being April 20th, this is going to be an interesting and potentially dangerous month.

There is a zone from April 17th to 24th that historically has been problematic.  Some of the incidents that occurred during this time frame are; the bombing of the Federal building, the Gulf of Mexico Oil disaster, and Hitler’s birthday.  This April 20th is extra charged.  Please pray!

Some questions for you;

  • Where does Aries live in your chart; what house?

Do you have any natal planets or personal points (PP)?

(The main PP’s are the ascendant/rising sign, mid- heaven/MC.) in Aries?

  • Do you have any planets or personal points (PP) in the Cardinal Signs? Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn?
  • If so, are these Planets and PP’s in aspect (conjunct, sextile, square, trine or opposite) to other planets?
  • Watch the path of Mars through Aries.  If Mars comes up on one of your planets be ready for raw energy to come in.  If you know Mars is aspecting one of your planets or (PP) prior to it happening you can make the Energy work for you. Aries is raw, primal, active, yang, life force. Kind of like a wild horse. If you can tame it you can ride it.
  • Google Free Astrology Chart and get a chart done!  Knowing what the Aries planets are doing will help stop potential fights, disagreements, bashing your head, irritation, impatience, getting burns and cutting yourself…..such a soft Sign! Lol!
  • On the good side it will help you to start a new endeavor, when to ask that special person out for a date, when to ask for that pay raise at work, start an exercise program, or leave a relationship/job.

NEPTUNE GOES INTO PISCES -April 4, 2011 to January 27 2026

Neptune is a planet of lights and mirrors, very elusive, very mystical.  It runs the gamut from visionary prophet to skid row bum.

Pisces is the chameleon, visionary, dreamer, victim, savior, and the healer.

Here are some key words for Neptune in Pisces:

Dreams, visions, healer, ghosts, spirits, artist, psychic, mental health, occult, spirituality, drugs, alcohol, medicines, escapism, musician, non real reality, rebirth of spiritualistic churches, illusionist, the great deceiver, film maker, photography, drug smuggler, oil and gas, magician, unfretted musical instruments, addict, psychologists, Energy work, witches, oceanography, holy water, disease, dissolver, earthquakes at sea, sea horse, spiritual explorer, false and real prophets, entity possession will increase ( if you have a strong  Pisces  signature in your chart or have a stellium-more than 4 planets in the 12th house,  you must have good energetic hygiene!)

Let us see what happen the last time Neptune went into Pisces.

April 1847.

The following occurred the last time Neptune was in Pisces: From Kelli Fox

  • The United States issued its first postage stamps
  • The Irish Potato Famine occurred
  • The California Gold Rush took place
  • Elizabeth Blackwell became the first female doctor in the U.S.
  • James Knox Polk becomes the first President of the U.S. to have his photograph taken
  • American Express was founded
  • Europeans made up 22% of the world population
  • The first protected submarine telegraph cable laid across the English Channel
  • The novel Moby-Dick was published
  • The Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London admitted its first patient
  • The first Boat Race between Yale and Harvard occurred
  • The first public aquarium opened at the London Zoo
  • The American and German piano manufacturer Steinway & Sons was founded
  • Alexander Wood invented the hypodermic syringe
  • Major streets were lit by coal gas for the first time
  • The world’s first oil well was drilled in Poland
  • Professor Benjamin Silliman of Yale University was the first person to distill petroleum into useable oil
  • An epidemic of cholera in London killed about 10,000 people, and it was traced back to one single well water pump
  • The Opium Wars occurred
  • The French fashion label Louis Vuitton was founded
  • The birth of the chemical industry started
  • New York banks closed for two months following a major financial panic
  • Divorce became legal in Britain
  • Hollywood was founded
  • Charles Blondin crosses Niagara Falls on a tightrope for the first time

In 1847 the USA was at war with Mexico so I think our relationship with our neighbor to the south will be challenged and come to a head during the next decade.  The Drug war with the cartels will be fought on our soil.

Since Neptune in Pisces can be all about escapism, we will see more people going to movies, gaming, meditating, and taking drugs.

The ancient ways of Dream work will re-immerge. Shaman work will be stronger than ever. The veil between the worlds will thin.

Yerba Buena became San Francisco!

Synopsis for this month: Stay alert, be calm, take this Mars/Aries energy and start a new project, create something new.  It will be easier to exercise but pay attention. Think before you speak…..I sound like a mother!

If you are at a protest and you feel a shift in the energy, leave.

Our police and fire departments will be extra busy this month.

Take this wild Spring energy and make it yours!

Peace to all!

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

To let you know that I walk the talk, I became my neighborhood watch captain.

Here are the Astrological basics:

Sun

The Sun goes into Aries on Sunday, March 20th at 4:21 pm

MOON

  • New Moon – 13 degrees of Pisces on Thursday, March 4th at 12:46 pm
  • Full Moon (Chaste Moon in old Wiccan, Worm Moon  in N/E Native American ) – Saturday, March 19th at 28 degrees Virgo at 11:10am.
  • The last two months we had the full moons at 29 degrees of Gemini and  29 degree of Cancer.  The last degrees of signs are very potent for bringing issues to an end or moving energy into the next phase.

  • Neptune is the co-ruler of Pisces.

Pluto starts March at 07 Capricorn.

  • Ends the month at 07 Capricorn.

Moons Mean Node start March at 29 Sagittarius

Topic for March:

The Uranus enters Aries: March 11 2011 to March 25 2019

Oh my, my, my!! Let the games begin!  Hold on tight kids, we are now on Mr. Toads Wild Ride.  If there was a slogan it would be,” New beginnings after radical change.”

Electronic Innovation!  Think the last eight years has brought us change in electronics?  Be prepared for awe!

In the next 8 years there will be a renaissance of creativity, especially in medical applications.  More Moore law.  Nano tech will be off the wall and in your veins. Nano implants will be everywhere.

The birth choice method that requires no surgery, the reversible tubular occlusion, using nano tech, will be invented.  The Pharmas will try to kill the inventor…..bad Pharma’s.

The reversible tubular occlusion is a blocking of the fallopian tubes.  If the fallopian tubes are blocked, the egg gets reabsorbed into the body.  Many women have blocked fallopian tubes naturally and are not in any discomfort. So this birth choice method is perfect; No egg, no baby, no chemicals, no side effect.

The nano device will be partial constructed of a human made material using the woman’s own DNA.  This is done so the device will not be attacked by the body’s immune system.  When the woman wants to get pregnant, the nano gate is opened and the egg can pass through the device to be fertilized.  After the woman has the child the nano gate is shut again.  No chemical birth control.  At first the device will be expensive but like the first hand held calculator, the price to buy one will plunge. Though the medical profession will keep the cost artificial high.  Speaking of Artificial….artificial intelligence research will bloom and produce.

Uranus in Aries is also a rise in mercenaries.  More corporations will be acting like they are a nation unto themselves. A new cooperate culture arises. Cooperate alliances vs nations.

Uranus in Aries, a new strain of tuberculosis and other drug resistant viruses will arise, especially in Mars ruled countries….like Russian. Pandora’s box.

Uranus in Aries…..revolution, sudden attacks, union uprising, the first real talk of States leaving the U.S of America.

Uranus in Aries Angry youth…..look at the Middle East.

Uranus conjoins the IC (the fourth house cusp)  for the USA Sibyl chart on the March 20th, the day of the Vernal equinox; 00 degrees of Aries. There will be a major event very close to this date. Good or bad???  Let’s hope and pray for the best. The last time was Uranus was on the IC wads January 28, 1928.

The last time Uranus went into Aries was January 14, 1928.  I find it interesting that at the beginning of 1928, Jupiter was in Aries as it is now.

Also, in January 1928, Neptune at 28 Leo Retrograde is exactly opposite where it is now.

And last but not least, in 1928, Pluto was in Cancer, the opposite sign of where it is now; which is Capricorn.

What does this mean?  Well let us go back to 1928 and see what was going on then.

Take a look at this link

http://www.indiana.edu/~league/1928.htm

See how many issues that occurred in 1928 reemerge. Example from link: The Senussi leader in Cyrenaica surrendered to the Italians, finally ending the war in eastern Libya and placing the colony fully under Italian control.

Hmmmm, war in eastern Libya…sound familiar?

The problems with flooding will continue.  In January 1928 there was a horrendous flood in England.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1928_Thames_flood

Though I think there will be problems with all the elements because of the Cardinal Cross and the mix of the Capricorn (Pluto) and Neptune being in the last degrees of Aquarius.

But worst of all in 1928 was the world wide financial troubles.

http://eh.net/encyclopedia/article/parker.depression Example from link

In January 1928 the seeds of the Great Depression, whenever they were planted, began to germinate. For it is around this time that two of the most prominent explanations for the depth, length, and worldwide spread of the Depression first came to be manifest. Without any doubt, the economics profession would come to a firm consensus around the idea that the economic events of the Great Depression cannot be properly understood without a solid linkage to both the behavior of the supply of money together with Federal Reserve actions on the one hand and the flawed structure of the interwar gold standard on the other.

If derivatives are not regulated soon, and common sense regulations re established, and some of the CEO’s that knew of the housing debacle, put in prison, there will be a financial collapse and revolution.  If nothing is done by November 2011, the change will burst into being.

Now on a lighter note:  la la la do re me!

Jupiter in Aries:  A great time for new money opportunities. Have an idea?  Go with it.  Talk to your friends, network, and make it happen.

This is in effect until June 3 2011.

Where does Aries live in your chart?  That is the area of expansion.

Peace to all!

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

To let you know that I walk the talk, I became my neighborhood watch captain.

Starting September 12, 2010 Reverend Felecia Mulvany and I will be teaching a 9 month intensive Advanced Healers course at UCM HQ in Campbell. These classes may be taking separately.

It has showers, complete kitchen, wood burning stoves for heat, composting toilets, electricity, hot tub, labyrinth, fairy grotto, hiking trails, and two old growth Redwoods.

This retreat is a retreat.  You will have lots of time to yourself: to walk in the forest, sit by the stream and mediate, read, journal, hot tub, or whatever your heart desires.

Picture yourself at night, floating in a redwood hot tub, gazing at thousands of stars as you smell the smell of the forest!  The only sound is the union of your breath and the breeze.  Ah!  I am there already!

The reversible tubular occlusion is a blocking of the fallopian tubes.  If the fallopian tubes are blocked, the egg gets reabsorbed into the body.  Many women have blocked fallopian tubes naturally and are not in any discomfort. So this birth choice method is perfect; No egg, no baby, no chemicals, no side effect.

The nano device will be partial constructed of a human made material using the woman’s own DNA.  This is done so the device will not be attacked by the body’s immune system.  When the woman wants to get pregnant, the nano gate is opened and the egg can pass through the device to be fertilized.  After the woman has the child the nano gate is shut again.  No chemical birth control.  At first the device will be expensive but like the first hand held calculator, the price to buy one will plunge. Though the medical profession will keep the cost artificial high.  Speaking of Artificial….artificial intelligence research will bloom and produce.

Uranus in Aries is also a rise in mercenaries.  More corporations will be acting like they are a nation unto themselves. A new cooperate culture arises. Co-operate alliances vs. nations.

Uranus in Aries, a new strain of tuberculosis and other drug resistant viruses will arise, especially in Mars ruled countries….like Russian. Pandora’s Box.

Uranus in Aries…..revolution, sudden attacks, union uprising, the first real talk of States leaving the U.S of America.

Uranus in Aries Angry youth…..look at the Middle East.

Uranus conjoins the IC (the fourth house cusp) for the USA Sibyl chart on the March 20th, the day of the Vernal equinox; 00 degrees of Aries. There will be a major event very close to this date. Good or bad???  Let’s hope and pray for the best. The last time was Uranus was on the IC wads January 28, 1928.

The last time Uranus went into Aries was January 14, 1928.  I find it interesting that at the beginning of 1928, Jupiter was in Aries as it is now.

Also, in January 1928, Neptune at 28 Leo Retrograde is exactly opposite where it is now.

And last but not least, in 1928, Pluto was in Cancer, the opposite sign of where it is now; which is Capricorn.

What does this mean?  Well let us go back to 1928 and see what was going on then.

Take a look at this link

http://www.indiana.edu/~league/1928.htm

See how many issues that occurred in 1928 reemerge. Example from link: The Senussi leader in Cyrenaica surrendered to the Italians, finally ending the war in eastern Libya and placing the colony fully under Italian control.

Hmmmm, war in eastern Libya…sound familiar?

The problems with flooding will continue.  In January 1928 there was a horrendous flood in England.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1928_Thames_flood

Though I think there will be problems with all the elements because of the Cardinal Cross and the mix of the Capricorn (Pluto) and Neptune being in the last degrees of Aquarius.

But worst of all in 1928 was the world wide financial troubles.

http://eh.net/encyclopedia/article/parker.depression Example from link

In January 1928 the seeds of the Great Depression, whenever they were planted, began to germinate. For it is around this time that two of the most prominent explanations for the depth, length, and worldwide spread of the Depression first came to be manifest. Without any doubt, the economics profession would come to a firm consensus around the idea that the economic events of the Great Depression cannot be properly understood without a solid linkage to both the behavior of the supply of money together with Federal Reserve actions on the one hand and the flawed structure of the interwar gold standard on the other.

If derivatives are not regulated soon, and common sense regulations re established, and some of the CEO’s that knew of the housing debacle, put in prison, there will be a financial collapse and revolution.  If nothing is done by November 2011, the change will burst into being.

Now on a lighter note:  la la la do re me!

Jupiter in Aries:  A great time for new money opportunities. Have an idea?  Go with it.  Talk to your friends, network, and make it happen.

This is in effect until June 3 2011.

Where does Aries live in your chart?  That is the area of expansion.

Peace to all!

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

To let you know that I walk the talk, I became my neighborhood watch captain.

BRAVE NEW WORLD: OUTER PLANETS IN TRANSITION

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

10 AM – 8:00 PM

KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Bring on the Human Future!

Steven Forrest

5:00 PM – 6:30 PM

Uranus squaring Pluto, Jupiter opposing Saturn—with all the current concern about the intense planetary activity in the Cardinal signs and the spooky (and allegedly Mayan) prophecies about the end of the world in 2012, it is easy forget that Neptune will be a major part of the mix for fourteen years starting very soon. As the planet of dreams and visions enters the sign of its modern rulership, its impact on everyone becomes vastly more powerful.

What will Neptune’s passage through Pisces add to the current mix? In this talk, Steven Forrest explores the idea that the tensions of the current world situation will soon propel humanity in a new and more spiritual direction. This is not some New Age fantasy about Dick Cheney meditating or Paris Hilton getting over herself! Steven’s talk will be grounded history. He intends to prove to you that, behind all the apocalyptic fears, we actually have solid ground for optimism about the human direction.

2011 and Beyond: A New World Emerging from the Sea

Dale O’Brien

10:15 AM – 11:15 AM

Since 1925, a NEW WAY of looking at the signs of the Zodiac emerged, giving one unique image for each degree of the zodiac. Since that time, this collection of images, called “The Sabian Symbols.” has merged into astrology. On this very first day of Spring, March 21.2011, we will experience, celebrate and co-create the beginning of a new spring like no other before! This is because the Sun aligns with the bringer of changes, Uranus, in the very first degree of the very first sign of the Zodiac. The Sabian Symbol image for this degree is “A woman has risen out of the ocean, a seal is embracing her.” Simultaneously, Spring 2011 begins with no less than 4 “planets” in Pisces, the sign of moving water (the ocean) AND Neptune, “lord of the oceans” ready to move into Pisces very soon in 2011. It seems that “A New World” is indeed emerging from the sea. What might this mean? This astrologer, Dale O’Brien, has lots to say about that! Astrological meaning reflects the meaning of our lives as water reflects the lights that shine upon it. As the old song goes, “What does the deep sea say?”

Uranus in Aries: Taking Charge of Our Well-Being

Stephanie Gailing

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

As Uranus marches through Aries for the next eight years, we are being called to martial our courage and initiate liberating changes that can further connect us to our sense of personal empowerment. Yet with its shocking and expect-the-unexpected energy, Uranus’ journey through the primary cardinal sign is likely to feel challenging for many. In this lecture, we will review the self-care tools—including dietary approaches, essential oils, flower essences, and lifestyle recommendations—that we can offer our clients (and use ourselves) to help galvanize a sense of physical, mental, and emotional well-being during this time. To add an additional layer of context, we’ll also discuss the health trends that we are likely to collectively encounter during Uranus’ sojourn through Aries.

When One Door Closes, another Opens: How to Flourish Financially in the New Age Dorothy Kovach

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Like it or not, a major shift in consciousness is upon us. Simply put, when the big planets change signs, so does our luck. The old ways no longer work. As savvy investors know, wherever Uranus goes, new millionaires follow. Knowing about the outer planets’ new celestial locations can spell the difference between getting rich or going broke. Uranus in Aries may even bring us the opportunity to rid ourselves of our addiction to oil for once and for all. It won’t be all sweet and light, though. The natives are restless, thanks to Pluto in Capricorn. Tea-baggers are only the beginning of the potential civil unrest that lurks in the future thanks to Neptune’s march through murky Pisces, which may only make matters worse by prolonging the recession. Bring your chart and your questions, and find out where to make money in this astrologically Brave New World. 

Uranus/Pluto: An Astrological Hero’s Journey

Ralfee Finn

3:30 PM – 4:30 PM

This lecture presents the Uranus/Pluto squares of the next several years as the astrological equivalent of a Hero’s Journey. It contextualizes the cycle through a mythic framework in order to allow a deeper understanding of its power and potential for personal as well as planetary transformation. Often understood astrologically as the principle of sudden change, Uranus is infamously at the center of startling twists of fate. As the original Greek sky god who joined with Gaia to create the Olympian Gods, Uranian thunderbolts of lightning still catalyze transformation by illuminating stagnant systems in need of renewal. We have just completed a two-year cycle of Saturn/Uranus oppositions, during which time we witnessed the dissolution of structures and systems that no longer serve. But this process is not over. We have yet to witness what will rise from the ashes: we know what’s dying; we don’t know what’s being born. The next four years of Uranus/Pluto squares hold the key to what lies ahead. Pluto’s primal force always demands a death as well as a rebirth, and as it joins forces with Uranus, we will hear what Joseph Campbell deems “The Call to Adventure.” As the journey unfolds, it will be marked by a descent into the underworld, various trials and initiations, and most importantly opportunities to redefine masculine and feminine cultural archetypes. It will also include a reemergence into the world based on a new and expanded consciousness.

SOLAR ECLIPSE/NEW MOON- 13 degrees of Capricorn on Tuesday, January 4th at 1:03 am

http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OH2011.html#SE2011Jan04P

Note: The influences of eclipses do vary, but here is a basic rule; Lunar eclipses are felt for a month on either direction of the eclipse date and Solar eclipses are felt for a year after the eclipse.

What were you doing 18.6 years ago?  It will be coming up for review or for a conclusion.

MOON

  • New Moon – 13 degrees of Capricorn on Tuesday, January 4th at 1:03 am
  • Full Moon (Wolf Moon in old Wiccan, Wolf Moon also in N/E Native American) – Wednesday, January 19th at 29 degrees Cancer at 1:21pm.
  • Last month we had the full moon at 29 degrees of Gemini now this one is at the 29 degree of Cancer.  The last degree of sign again.

Note:  The New and Full Moon are usually the polar opposite signs. This month it is Capricorn and Cancer, society, home and family issues.

Mercury starts January at 20 degrees of Sagittarius

  • Goes in to Capricorn,  Thursday, January 13th at 3:25 am
  • Ends the month at 26 Capricorn

Venus starts January at 25 degrees of Scorpio

  • Goes into Sagittarius Friday, January 7th at 4:31 am
  • Ends the month at 26 degrees of Sagittarius

Mars starts January at 19 degrees of Capricorn

  • Goes into Aquarius, Saturday January  15th at 2:41pm
  • Ends the month at 13 degrees of Aquarius.

Jupiter starts January at 27 degrees of Pisces

  • Goes into Aries, Saturday January 22nd at 9:11 am
  • Ends the month at 02 degrees of Aries

Saturn starts January at 17 Libra

  • Goes Stationary Retrograde on Tuesday, January 25th at 10:11 pm
  • Ends the month at 17 degrees of Libra Retrograde
  • Saturn is exalted in Libra.  Libra is not his sign, but to him this sign is like visiting a four star hotel.

Uranus starts January at 27 degrees of Pisces

  • Ends the month at 28 Pisces

Neptune starts January at 27 Aquarius.

  • End ends the month at 28 Aquarius.
  • Neptune is ending its 14 years journey through Aquarius; it goes into Pisces on April 5, 2011. 
  • Neptune is the co-ruler of Pisces.

Pluto starts January at 05 Capricorn.

  • Ends the month at 06 Capricorn.

Moons Mean Node start January at 02 Capricorn

Solar System Planets.

Topic for January:

The Jupiter/Uranus conjunction

Where is Pisces located in your birth chart? Know this, because it is where the Boyz of Freedom, (Jupiter and Uranus both at 27degrees of Pisces from Jan 1-6), are having their own personal burning man in your chart.

Below is a very basic descriptor of what the houses mean.

1st house-your body, ego and personality

2nd house-money, possessions and self worth

3rd house-communications, short trips and siblings

4th house-family, home and real estate

5th house-creativity, children and love affairs

6th house-daily routine and work

7th house-partners; business and marriage

8th house-taxes, occult and other people’s money

9th house-judicial system, long distance travel, higher education and beliefs

10th house-career, reputation and authority figures in your life

11th house-networking, friends and groups you belong to

12th house-your subconscious, habits, and spirituality

See which house your Pisces lives in and pay attention; see how the Jupiter/Uranus energy is actualizing in your life.

Feeling a little edgy lately?  Having a hard time focusing?

Like with all planetary combinations there is a productive and non productive energy associated with it, it is up to you how it manifests.

Jupiter expands what it touches and Uranus is the radical rebel of the planets.  This combo is the daddy of sudden change, new money and changing beliefs!

Many people are feeling trapped and hemmed in, desperately wanting to be free of their mundane life. If you have a friend that bolts to do the Tango in Argentina, you can probably guess correctly that she has her Pisces in the 9th house.

Others have weird feelings of buzzing energy flowing in their body resulting in facial ticks and twitching limbs.

Another side effect is all the weird dreams people have been having!

If you can harness this edgy energy you will come up with some amazing inventions and ah-ha moments. Inspirational understandings will come from out of the blue.

This combo also brings in sudden luck and fortune.  If your second house cusp is near 27 Pisces, go buy a Lotto ticket!

As for the USA, this planetary combo is saddling up to the USA Sibyl charts

fourth house cusp.  The fourth house cusp is called the Immum Coeli, IC for short, it means “at the lowest point in the heavens” in Latin.  It is sometimes called the “Nadir”. It represents where the people live, the land itself, and our country.

Here are some things that will go on;

  • The Fed will be meeting to further discuss the advancement of electronic money.
  • A radical movement will start via the web espousing personal freedom….off the grid type.  It will be the beginning of the next wave of communal living
  • It is a very creative time for new inventions worldwide
  • Sudden floods, rogue waves and incidents at the shipping docks; double check those cargo containers
  • Advancements in underwater communication

On Jan 22nd, Jupiter goes into Aries and the game will change to boots hitting the ground on the Banks of America.

Peace to all!

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

Starting September 12, 2010 Reverend Felecia Mulvany and I will be teaching a 9 month intensive Advanced Healers course at UCM HQ in Campbell. These classes may be taking separately.

Highlights for November:

Since the two planets that represent money, Jupiter and Venus, are going stationary direct on November 19th, I thought I would write a bit about the economy……  economy?  We have an economy?

Assorted international currency notes.

Image via Wikipedia

 

This November the stock market will be wild.  Around November 19-28 there will be lots of activity. Risk takers paradise.  The economy will improve this month…at least on paper.

Last month I wrote:

After months of overt and covert meetings, the powers that be are putting the finishing touches on their negotiated plan. Will it work? 

We will see an indicator of what direction the plan will take at the end of this month…last 9 days.

The Federal Bank had their meeting and announced they will dump 600 billion into the economy.  The financial wonks call this action QE2 Quantitative Easing #2.  They will buy long term bonds hoping to stimulate the economy.  (Yes, that is like printing money with nothing backing it up) This is the last best hope, and it is a gamble that is not assured of working.  In 2008-09 they dumped a couple of trillion dollars into the economy, the first QE…..this is why the current action is called QE#2….a play on what our English friends use to represent Queen Elizabeth the second.  Hmmmm does this mean our currency will go the way of the Monarch? 

What else can the Fed do? The Fed’s interest rate for the banks is at zero so that economic tool is “zeroed out”.   

In my earlier blogs I wrote about the effect of Pluto in Capricorn and its effect on world government and the monetary systems.  Pluto flushes the dark secrets and hidden crap to the surface to be purged.  What religion went through under Pluto in Sagittarius, government will go through during Pluto’s time in Capricorn. 

Each sign is divided into three sections of ten degrees each called decans.

Pluto is in the initial stage of Capricorn/Capricorn until November 23 2013.  This is the break down phase, the exposing of the corrupt underbelly phase.  It is the beginning of the end for, business as usual, world wide. 

Right now in the chart of the USA (Sibyl) the progressed Moon and Neptune are both at 26 degrees of Virgo in the ninth house.  In Mundane astrology the Moon represents the people (lower to upper middle class) and Neptune represents illusion, fifth column and subversive tactics, collective values, utopian tendencies, politically unrealistic ideals, ….(from Mundane Astrology by Michael Baigent and Nicholas Campion).

We have one more month in the thick of the progressed Moon/Neptune energies, which is the people being kept from seeing what is happening. The word hoodwinked comes to mind.

Then when the Progressed Moon of the Sibyl chart reaches the top of the chart (MC or Midheaven) the people will demand change.  This will start in late January 2011 to April 2011.  More secret documents from inside Wall Street and the government will be leaked.  The mortgage debacle will come to a head.

Concurrent with the Progressed Moon/Neptune, transiting Neptune is conjoined the Sibyl charts 27 degree Aquarius Moon; a double whammy.  Come April 2011, the people will become more proactive.

We have to live within our means and within the cycles of planet Earth. We have to go back to the forgotten sacred contracts we had with the plants and other animals with which we share the planet.  If we do not, Mother Earth will make a financial correction of her own.

For you astrologers out there here are some other Astrological indicators for the economy.

On May 30 2008, the USA had its progressed Full Moon.  Now she is in the waning phase of her Moon cycle.

Right now the transiting south node is conjoining the Sibyl Venus 03 Cancer in the 7th, whilst transiting Pluto and the transiting north node are conjoined.

On September 23 2011, the progressed ascendant of the USA goes into Virgo; the 30 year period of Leo is over. 

Practicality, common sense, and frugality replace material excesses.

December 03, 2010, Transiting Saturn will conjoin the USA’s natal Saturn; The USA will have its eighth Saturn return.  As with all Saturn returns, if you did your homework you will be rewarded, it you didn’t it is payback time.

When Neptune goes into Pisces on April 5, 2011, the negotiations for a world currency will start in earnest.

Peace to all! 

Remember:  Think Globally, Act Locally!  Get involved in your local city politics.  The change starts with you.

We will create Sacred Ceremony invoking the Great Goddess.  I only teach White/good Magick.

 

The retreat is located at Salamander Camp which is less than 10 minutes outside of Los Gatos in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  You would never know you are near a city. 

You will also have the opportunity to participate in arts and crafts, meditation, movement and dance, hiking, chanting, drumming- rattling, Sisterhood, self-care, Magick and quiet time.  .

Salamander Camp has three huge yurts; one is the kitchen, one for ceremonial work and one for sleeping (beds and futons). 

It has showers, complete kitchen, wood burning stoves for heat, composting toilets, electricity, hot tub, labyrinth, fairy grotto, hiking trails, and two old growth Redwoods.

This retreat is a retreat.  You will have lots of time to yourself: to walk in the forest, sit by the stream and mediate, read, journal, hot tub, or whatever your heart desires.

Picture yourself at night, floating in a redwood hot tub, gazing at thousands of stars as you smell the smell of the forest!  The only sound is the union of your breath and the breeze.  Ah!  I am there already!

The price includes all your meals and lodging.  The meals are delicious and organic. Please tell me if you have any dietary restrictions so we can make you your own delicious food.
