Sagittarius New Moon (12-06-18)--Pie in the Sky or True Freedom?


Sagittarius New Moon--The Sky is the Limit

With Jupiter now in its own sign Sagittarius, the New Moon in Sagittarius brings expansion. And as I write these words, a piano concerto by the Sagittarius composer Beethoven plays in the background. I feel exuberance as my sore hands type this post. And yet, I have faith that it will get done and reach the right people.

The Sagittarius New Moon on December 6 brings us hope and we even look forward to the holiday season. We might even feel hope for the upcoming new year. And Mercury also goes direct in Scorpio on this day. Now, we can clear up communication, find a good sale on the electronics we need to replace because of the Mercury RX period. And like the Satyr symbol for Sagittarius, our eyes are on the sky, and our we aim our arrows at the prize, whatever that is for each of us.

This Moon at 15 degrees Sagittarius along with Jupiter at 6 degrees Sagittarius ask us where would we like to travel in the world if money wasn't an issue? What adventure would we like to pursue? Would we like to master a new subject or practice? Some of you pursue higher education. Some of you teach, lecture or write to a larger audience. And some of you publish books during this cycle. And even if we are only armchair travelers reading about other people's adventures, we are still engaging with the wider world. We want to know what is possible for impossible dreams don't exist when Sagittarius calls the shots.

For a more detailed look of the Sagittarius New Moon check out my video on Astrologer Patricia. For now, I'm going to give a breakdown of the signs for this transit.

Fire Signs

You come out of the shadows and hop until everyone's radar. You are the life of the party spicing up conversations with your many life adventures and your dreams of traveling to new places. You want to revolutionize the world beginning with people's attitudes. You motivate us to get our acts together and to dream the dream and put it into action. You remind us of the hero's quest and that the journey is worth taking for the sake of the journey and not the destination.

Watch out for Neptune fantasies and keep it real with your feet on the ground (Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn). Uranus has you fired up again to the injustices in the world but Jupiter in Sagittarius gives you the passion to make changes happen. Shine your light this holiday season.

Water Signs

Where there is hope you make progress. You feel reflective with Chiron, Mars, and Neptune in Pisces, the North Node in Cancer, and Mercury now direct in Scorpio. Perhaps, you wax nostalgia as you listen to old holiday songs and sit on the couch watching holiday movies. You certainly feel sentimental towards yourself and others. And many of you will actually enjoy this holiday season with family and you wonder how this is possible.

Practice self-care and find alone time to reassess your growth from the previous year. Make plans for long-distance travel with your closest friends or a loved one. Drink plenty of water and stay away from too many sweets. If you find yourself craving junk food take a look at where your life lacks passion and sustenance and then do something about it.

Earth Signs

You feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. And you do. People turn to you for your wisdom and strength. This is why practicing self-care is crucial around this New Moon. Many of you see an upswing in massage or bodywork clients or you find that you are coaching more people to find their own strengths and to face their weaknesses.

Take good care of your physical body and your physical structures as in your homes. But remember that home is just a physical structure and a true home is where your heart resides. You are the master rebuilders but rebuild your own life before rolling up your sleeves and tackling the lives of others. And practice what you preach.

Air Signs

It's so easy to get stuck in cynicism while watching or reading about world events. But why not take a cue from your Fire Sign friends and go on an adventure? Get out of your head this holiday season and get in touch with your body through sensations and feelings. And if you weren't too cynical what would you like to do with your life? What would you like to do today to make that happen? Jupiter is actually pounding on your door asking you to come outside and play.

Grab your kayak or your bike and hit the water or road. Write a poem. Take a photograph. And make a gratitude list to knock you out of the doldrums. Life isn't perfect but so what? You can change your thoughts with some practice and change the tune you sing. Better yet, go hang out with a Sagittarius for a day. That will enlighten you.

Gemini Full Moon on November 22, 2018--Everyone's Talking


The Gift of Gab & Learning New Skills: Gemini Full Moon

Gemini is the most chatty sign in the Zodiac Wheel. It's considered one of the fun signs along with Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries. 

However, on the other side of that, Gemini is a curious and smart Air Sign. And Gemini children ask constant questions while hopping between their favorite subjects. We'll all feel like learning new subjects with this Mutable Full Moon because...

And after the first two weeks of November's drama, we will want to detach and disconnect. Two days after this Full Moon, Neptune turns direct so maybe this is a good time for making movies or watching them. We could also create movies in our own minds in the realm of fantasies. We might feel lost in the woods, but we'll enjoy the journey. And it is also a good time to fly a kite or stare up at the night sky and contemplate the vastness of the universe.
Personally, I have two planets in Gemini--Mars and Venus. Mars in the 5th house challenges Pluto and Uranus in my 8th and Saturn and my Moon in the 2nd houses. So, I'm not having much fun as far as Mars goes, but I love to play with words and words are like swords on bad days. 

My Venus in Gemini is a retrograde Singleton in my 6th house of health and daily health. And lately, she has been teaming up with Saturn in Capricorn (not through an aspect) in causing pain in my hands. Gemini rules hands, the 6th house rules health, and Saturn is straddling my Ascendant in the 1st house which rules the body.

But I'm still looking forward to the Gemini Full Moon because it is laced with adventure. We dream large and answer the call to a personal quest. This is because this full Moon at 0 degrees opposes the Sun conjunct Jupiter and Gemini's planet Mercury RX. So, we don't just want to talk. We want some action. We want to travel further afield even overseas. We want to meet new kinds of people who pique our curiosity and boy, do we want to learn and expand our minds and our circumstances. People complain more than ever that they feel bored.

Mars in Pisces T-squares the Moon, the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury. Mars is asking us to step outside of our comfort zone or our minds and to get in touch with our hearts. If you are bored then find a charity or cause and volunteer your time helping someone else. It could even be tutoring or working with at-risk youth. Otherwise, the energy of Mars in Pisces is wasted.

Meanwhile, Venus in the late degrees of Libra opposes Uranus RX in Aries. Now, for more evolved men and women, this could be a sexy time of wordplay. This energy reminds me of Shakespeare comedies where men square off with feisty women. Both sexes sought equals in wit and in everyone another area. A dull inauthentic person might just hide out during this Moon. In any case, the wit during the Gemini Full Moon is biting at best.
If you are a writer, publisher, editor, pod-caster or broadcaster, you're going to love this Gemini Moon. This is a time to get your work out in the world. People will also be purchasing more books than usual during the week of the Gemini Full Moon. It is an extroverted time and a great time to network. And as more shifting occurs on the planet it might also be a good time to find a new job or to make a living with social media or another type of entrepreneurial effort involving communication and travel.

If you would like more in-depth information on this full Moon, please watch my Astrologer Patricia video on this Moon (YouTube).

Sign up for a personal astrology or card reading. I also do channel sessions and coaching. And if you are in the Pacific NW and you would like to organize astrology classes, I'm free to teach basic and intuitive astrology.

Jupiter Transit in Sagittarius (November 8, 2018)--Great Ball of Fire

After a year of deep soul diving, Jupiter leaves Scorpio at 4:38 a.m. Standard Pacific Time on November 8, 2018 and the gaseous planet enters its own sign Sagittarius. This means that several planets are transiting in their own signs. Neptune transits in Pisces, Jupiter transits in Sagittarius, Saturn transits in Capricorn and Venus transits retrograde in one of her co-rulers Libra.

I pulled a chart for Jupiter's switch from Scorpio to Sagittarius even though Jupiter will remain in the mutable fire sign for 12+ months, ending on December 2, 2019. The expansive planet is even expanding its stay in its own sign! The transit is a few days shy of 13 instead of the usual 12 months. And in December 2, 2019, Jupiter moves into Capricorn where it will eventually hook up with Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Some astrologers are calling this a Golden Age period. (They must have a lot of Sagittarius in their natal charts).

But on November 8 of this year, the transiting Moon enters Sagittarius a few hours later and weds Jupiter. Meanwhile, we're still riding the energies of the Scorpio New Moon from two days earlier, the North Node changing signs into Cancer and Uranus transiting back to 29 degrees Aries. Whew! And you can gamble the house and kids that Jupiter is going to expand on optimism and also on adventure. Jupiter will transform Scorpio's gloom into something to laugh about--and we might just find ourselves chuckling at hyperbole and the drama that kept our eyes to the ground for the previous 12 months.

Jupiter and Sagittarius rule expansion. They rule adventure, higher learning, and laughing at life's hard knocks. What does not destroy a Sagittarius person (few things can) just causes the Jupiterian person to teach others what he or she has learned. They are world travelers, big-time attorneys, foreign diplomats, movie makers, horse-whisperers, professors, publishers, authors, and lecturers. With Jupiter in Sagittarius, there is a thing about hair (similar to Leo's with their manes), clothing takes on exaggerated proportions (think bell bottoms from the 1970s and platform shoes). People want bigger cars and bigger houses and even bigger families. It's super size me again. And yes, meal portions grow too creating expanded waistlines if you're not careful. And sadly, larger people end up as the butt of jokes.

As far as adventures, the sky is the limit. Remember Jupiter is ruled by a satyr shooting arrows at the stars. This is a time when people take foolish risks. It's a time of bold climbing as opposed to Capricorn's cautious climbing. It's a time of athletes and superheroes and the Star Trek Enterprise going where no man or woman has gone before. The publishing and movie industries turn to adventures to make a quick buck and they succeed. But on the other hand, philosophical documentaries do well also.

Some of us return to college to obtain higher degrees. Others take their lessons and teaching on the road or to foreign lands. This is a time of long-distance travel and new transportation modes. It is also a gypsy time of taking homes on the road such as tiny houses and a plethora of mobile homes. The other Sagittarius theme is freedom. So, on one hand, some people saddle themselves with larger homes while others sell their homes and hit the open road.

We start off the transit with Venus RX in Libra in an Air Trine with Mars in Aquarius so for me this feels like a Jane Austen novel with men and women talking about the differences between the sexes in a civil manner. But Venus opposes Uranus in Aries so Jane tosses in that feminist spirit. And everyone is talking on this day because of the Moon, Jupiter and Mercury in Sagittarius. But don't believe a word of it because exaggeration and sarcasm rule the day.

Both the Scorpio Sun and Neptune in Pisces are in mid-degrees so they are growing bored of whatever dream is sold on this day. The Scorpio Sun wants to delve beneath the surface but even she has lost interest in deep psychology even if Chiron retrograde in Pisces is still digging up childhood hurts and slights. And the only planet holding down the fort is Saturn at 5 degrees Capricorn. We will lean heavily on Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in 2019 for stability. Jupiter in Sagittarius tends to lose the house, metaphorically speaking.

So, this is not a stable time. It is a time when we laugh at our foibles but we also dread the unknown that stares us in the face. We want to make light of tragic situations and this feels cruel or heartless so some of us lose interests in this humor. While others turn to others to gossip and laugh out those they fail to understand.

And yet, we hear a call to a quest and a new adventure that only comes around once every twelve years. Pack your bags and take an enchanted journey.

Scorpio New Moon on November 7, 2018---A Call To Spiritual Warriors

On the same day as the Scorpio New Moon, Uranus retrogrades from Taurus into Aries. And that is a lot of Mars energy! The Divine Feminine arrives alright but in the form of a spiritual warrior or as an avenging mother energy. 

And what's really happening is that we delve into the darker recesses of the collective consciousness. Karma seems to be the buzzword as it refers to anytime we were complicit with darkness in this or any other lifetime. And it brings up shadows lingering in our bloodlines. In fact, it is an excellent time for clearing the bloodlines through DNA ancestral work.

At least Uranus does not oppose the Scorpio New Moon which falls at midpoint and our dreams are intense as the Sun and Moon form a trine with Neptune and they form a sextile with Pluto, Scorpio's intense planet! And the North Node at 29 degrees Cancer (it left Leo) and Jupiter at 29 degrees Scorpio are both moving into new signs. This means we are finishing up old business in the houses where we have Leo and Scorpio on the cusps.

So, have you healed the issues stalking you in your subconscious that prevent you from showing up authentically? Have you plummeted the depths of your soul to unearth your blocks that prevent you from co-creating the life you passionately desire or feel called to live? Jupiter won't return to this placement for another 12 years and the North Node won't return to 0 degrees Leo for 18 years. And yes, I realize that the North Node is already in Cancer by the time of this New Moon chart.

Meanwhile, Mars is zooming ahead in the last degrees of Aquarius where it's still rocking the planet. It is asking us to envision the future outside of the proverbial box. What would a world look like if each of us healed our deepest wounds and ripped off our conformity masks? Can you hear the revolution shouting at you? This is Mars we are talking about who has transited in Aquarius for around 6 months. He's storming the Bastille and demanding justice.

Rounding off and sounding off the healing message, Venus is retrograde has slithered out of Scorpio and she is in Libra asking us to create balance and peace in our dramatic lives. And Chiron is retrograde healing childhood wounds in Pisces. It seems like we are not able to get past wading in deep emotional water.

Forecasts for the 4 Elements:

Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): 

You benefit from the deep waters in which you emerge your mind, body and soul to emerge cleansed and transformed. It feels like a sacred baptism or a rebirth process after a dark night of the soul that lasted several months. The buzzwords for you are rebirth, recreation, healing power, and personal authority since you are the sole author of the life you create.

Don't give your power away to anyone. Meditate regularly and get to know your higher self. This is the time to increase your intuitive gifts and live beyond the veil. Transcend.

Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn):

Ground yourself through drumming, playing music, singing and dancing. Take your shoes off and walk on the earth in your bare feet. While you would rather work on your financial picture, spend time in nature instead and if you can, meditate outdoors or at least spend time hiking in the deep woods.

Many of you are master builders in your field of expertise. But you still cling to the old ways and old structure. You got to let that old stuff go. It is time to redesign your personal life and your profession. It's time to live differently whatever that means for you personally. And don't forget to take time to nurture yourself and others.

Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius):

The big news for you is the North Node leaving Leo for the Water Sign Cancer and Jupiter moving out of another Water Sign Scorpio into Sagittarius. And Jupiter will now enter the land of hyperbole and exaggerated humor which will have us laughing in the aisles. Expect super size everything--bigger houses, huge cars and larger plates for dinner. And you can also expect the waistline to expand if you are not careful, especially those of you with a Sagittarius Ascendant!

With Uranus back in Aries expect heated debates on and off social media. Expect more travelers making their living off laptops in exotic locales. Your buzzwords are adventure, freedom and justice. Refrain from knowing it all and remain curious to learning something new. Keep an open mind.

Air (Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra):

With that lovely air trine between Mars in Aquarius and Venus (and Ceres) in Libra you are waxing romantic comedies and reading Jane Austen's novels as you contemplate new roles for women and men. Equal rights and neo femininism are your buzzwords. And you contemplate the new male roles for the 21st Century. Will the real Mr. Darcy stand up?

Jupiter in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries add passion to the mix but you fear losing your cool and so you detach from the fiery energies. But use this energy for creating a new life and for going on an adventure. Your curiosity leads you on a new journey of discovery.  Higher learning beckons you.

Podcast for the Scorpio New Moon on November 7, 2018

November is the most intense month of 2018. Planets change directions, change signs, and the North Node which represents fate enters the new sign Cancer (South Node in Capricorn). I channeled information on this New Moon and some of the information will surprise you, some of it will delight you, and some of it might put your teeth on edge...

North Node Transits into Cancer (November 6, 2018 to May 6, 2020)

(This is the fee-based article for October 2018. The other articles this month are free of charge. I'm charging for some articles because of the time, energy, and resources).

The North Nodes moves out of Leo into the sign of the Crab on November 6, 2018. And it will stay in Cancer until May 6, 2020. The Nodes stay in a sign for a year and a half marking the sign placements of the lunar and solar eclipses for the time period of the nodes.

This means that our collective destiny or where we are heading, is in Cancer and our past, what we need to transform, is in Capricorn. This means that we are moving away from work, healing addiction to ambition and career, loneliness, and suffering for the sake of suffering (the Capricorn motto is pull yourself up by your own bootstrap). And we are moving into the discomfort of self-care, self-nurturing and the nurturing of others.

I was born with my North Node at 2 degrees Cancer in my Natal 6th House of the daily environment. And I personally, experienced the Aries Full Moon (September 24) squaring my North Node/South Node. This has been a painful passage for me where I am sifting through childhood events and resolving beliefs I developed from those childhood experiences. And I am also being drawn towards my destiny associated with a North Node in Cancer. This destiny involves other people and experiencing self-respect in those relationships as opposed to co-dependence.

Nodes move clockwise whereas the planets and Ascendant move counter clockwise. This means that the North Node will begin at 29 degrees Cancer with the South Node at 29 degrees Capricorn. And in May 2020, the Nodes will be at 0 degrees in their respective signs before they plunge into Gemini and Sagittarius.

Prior to the North Node moving into Cancer, we finish up old business with the Leo-Aquarius axis since the North Node has been in Leo for a year and a half (as of November 2018). And the themes we had covered revolved around the collective, authenticity, heart centeredness as well as, healing the neuro pathways in the brain (Aquarius). We moved beyond our fears of the collective since Leo prefers to stand out in the crowd as opposed to be part of a collective...

Venus in Scorpio—Compulsion, Instinct & the Feminine Psyche

 I started Whole Astrology as an educational and free format to post astrology articles in 2012. And due to financial and health constraints, I will be posting some fee-based articles on the blog. You can access the full article on a PDF through a $2.00 per article fee. Once I receive the payment I will e-mail the PDF article to you.

The Heroine's Dark Night of the Soul Journey 

In the story of Cupid and Psyche, a passionate affair comes with a caveat attached to it. Psyche ignores a warning not to look at her lover Cupid in the light. And when she does light a candle to gaze at Cupid’s sleeping body one night, wax from the candle falls on Cupid and burns his shoulder leading to heart wrenching consequences for Psyche.

And the story begins with Venus. And this particular Venus possesses shades of Scorpio. She is jealous of the princess Psyche so she sends her son Cupid to cast a spell on Psyche so she falls in love with a monster—the only problem is Cupid falls in love with Psyche.

And in another Greek story, the curious woman Pandora opens the forbidden box which releases pestilence and suffering upon the earth. But the last energy to fly out of the box is hope. No matter the muck that Venus in Scorpio brings our way, don’t give up hope.

And you might wonder why I’m bringing up these old stories in regard to Venus in Scorpio. When Venus transits in Scorpio she gets entangled in Mars energy and she is at her detriment because Scorpio is the opposite sign of Venus co-ruler Taurus. Normally, Venus in love is flirtatious, light, and diplomatic. 

She is the people-pleaser associated with Libra and the sensualist associated with Taurus. She seeks pleasure without the drama and she fears betrayal or complicated love games. When she lands in the darker shades of Scorpio she can no longer resist her primal urges which show up as compulsive behaviors that take her to the depths of Hades.

Taurus Full Moon for October 24, 2018---Charging Ahead

Image is of Montreal, Quebec (Taurus) from Pix a Bay

Where Deep Waters Meet Excitement 

Pay attention to the signs as we charge ahead. Many of us have grown tired of sitting on our hands or walking on eggshells. Our patience has worn thin as we witness too many people asleep at the wheel. Natural disaster after natural disaster and there still seems to be no environmental solutions. The rich get richer and the poor, more poor. 

But wait. We're poised for another turn of the proverbial wheel. Here we go!

You might be asking, what's that all about? Well, the Full Moon on October 24 at 1 degree Taurus weds to Uranus which is retrograde at 0 degrees Taurus. And even though this is happening in the Fixed Sign of the Cow (which can be quite bullish at times), Uranus gives us the push to charge ahead. It's like we've been in a corral for ages and then Uranus unlocks the gate and we see a wide open space waiting for us.

And the Moon, although in a stable Earth Sign, still impacts our emotions. We feel instinctual when the Moon is in a sign of an animal (Goats, Scorpions, Cows...) and our intuition shoots through the roof. We can also use this Earth energy to manifest our long held dreams on the collective level.

What transformation would you love to see happen on the planet? Would you like to see more solar power, more wind power, cleaner oceans, or peace between nations? This is all possible now if we harness our dreams into the collective energy of Unity Consciousness.

I also want to alert you to some cycle's ending which take place two weeks from the Taurus Full Moon. Uranus moves back into Aries on November 6 and on the same day, the North Node moves out of Leo and continues its journey in Cancer (South Node in Capricorn). Then on November 8, Jupiter roams into its own sign Sagittarius.

Venus and Neptune go direct in November and Mars moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces (finally!). And I would like to tell you that the Taurus Full Moon brings us some stability before November's changes in the wind, but alas, it won't with the Moon conjunct Uranus. This my friends, is a revolutionary chart. Mars is completing its 6 month tour in Aquarius. Retrograde Venus conjuncts the Sun and Ceres in Scorpio (transformation). Neptune and Pluto continue their sextile also bringing powerful transformation or alchemy on the planet. And the manifestation power of Saturn trine Uranus in Earth Signs continues as well. Change is gonna come and we can't stop it. Why would we want to stop it?

Meanwhile, Mercury (communication and thoughts) conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio (seeing the darkness and shadows) so we're either healing our psychological wounds or manipulating others during this Full Moon (more shadows than light). And let's not forget the planets in the mid degrees because they show us the work we still have ahead of us so we must protect ourselves from apathy or the urge to give up the fight.

Mars is in mid degrees, Neptune is in mid degrees and so is Pluto (mid degrees for me are 13 to 18 degrees). True mid degree is 14-15. So, I like to give the analogy that if we were running a marathon we would be between 13 and 15 miles into the race and we still have less than half the mileage to complete. Are we going to pace ourselves so that we have energy left for the last mile?

Please check out my Taurus Full Moon video on YouTube for further details. And subscribe to my Neptune Girl News if you would like to probe further into October's transits and the Scorpionic energy.

In the meantime, begin your manifestation process for a New Earth today so that we see some results during the surprising Taurus Full Moon on October 24.

Libra New Moon on October 8, 2018--Don't Give Up Now


Keeping Your Eyes on the Prize

I produced a separate podcast which you can find on my YouTube channel, Astrologer Patricia. I will cover some of the same chart features for this article and then I will give a rundown on what themes you can expect depending on which of your Natal Houses the Libra New Moon lands.

The most important aspect for me are the planets at mid degrees or just past the mid degrees. This includes the New Moon and the Sun at 15 Libra, Neptune at 14 degrees Pisces, and Pluto at 18 degrees which I still consider mid-range.

Now, the problems with mid-range degrees is that it's like we're halfway through running a marathon. We lack the initial energy that we experienced at the beginning of the race and our athletic prowess and focus wanes. We're far from the finish line and we feel like throwing in the towel and giving up. Or we have grown bored because the middle part of the race lacks the excitment that we feel at the start and at the end of the race.

And as I mentioned in my podcast, Neptune doesn't move out of Pisces until 2025 and Pluto doesn't change signs until 2024. So, we still have a ways to go. Meanwhile, Pluto has brought relentless transformation and has brought on the Dark Night of the Soul on the repeat mode, especially to people with many planets in Capricorn, Aries, Libra, and Cancer. So, who among these folks doesn't want to give up the fight? Enough already, right?

And yet, we must keep our eyes on the prize, a saying once used by the African-American solidarity movement. And that prize is Neptunian as it is Plutonian. That prize is a transformed planet where peace and justice reigns. And where we practice compassion, forgiveness and understanding. It's a vision of Unity Consciousness, but first we must expose the underbelly or the darkness operating on the planet that has worn a mask to hide its abusive behaviors.

And that mask is one of the most powerful and the most wealthy men (and women) on the planet. Oh, how we admire these folks at the altar of money and wealth.

Meanwhile, Mars is at 9 degrees Aquarius at the time of the Libra New Moon. Nine is the endpoint number in numerology and it represents completing a cycle. Pluto is at 18 degrees which also adds up to 9. And then, we have Uranus and Saturn in the early degrees so this energy is merely introducing itself. Saturn will remain in Capricorn for another year and eight months since it stays in a sign for 2 1/2 years and it entered Capricorn December of 2017. And Uranus will remain in Taurus until April 26, 2026. But first, it transits back into Aries in November and back into Taurus March of 2019.

However, the energy for the Libra New Moon is to find balance in our personal lives so that we find harmony on the global stage. And how do we find harmony in a world where injustice seems to take place in every industry and practice? By waking up our consciousness and refusing to partake in exchanges with companies and people who pedal suffering on the planet or use divisiveness to reach their bottom lines.

And this is easier than we think because new economic models are waiting on the sidelines as are other innovations that will allow us to step outside of the matrix if we choose. And well, that's another story. Yet, Libra does ask us to take a hard look at our values and whether or not we walk our talk. And Libra asks us to stop behaving in a passive-aggressive manner because people have less tolerance for indirect communication these days. So, it's time to heal our wounds that are underneath passive-aggressive behaviors. Because, really, who wants to hang out with a person who mistakes barbs for wit?

This chart also contains a Grand Fixed Square even if the orbs are wider than I would normally like. And I believe that this is the last or one of the last Grand Fixed Squares in a series we've experienced with the North Node in Leo, Mars in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. This is because Mars will move into Pisces in November, the North Node will move into Cancer in November, and Uranus will move back into Aries in November--which is only one month away from the Libra New Moon.

So, we have reached a culmination point of the fixed square between Mars and Uranus as well as, the Moon nodes. And on January 21, 2019, we will experience the last of the Leo-Aquarius cycle eclipses with the Lunar Eclipse at 0 degrees Leo. This means that we must hone the lessons and themes brought up by the fixed squares that took place between May and November of 2018. This revolves around justice and injustice, grassroots causes, revolutions, innovative thinking versus tradition, etc...And we will witness more youth rising up against injustice which Mars in Aquarius ignites and then Uranus returning to Aries in November will force us to reach a win-win conclusion to this chapter (between November 2018 and March 2019).

Okay, so now, let's take a look at how the Libra New Moon will impact each of the 12 Zodiac Houses. Take a look at your chart and look for the Libra symbol on a cusp. That's the house where the themes of the New Moon take center stage for you.

First House: You care deeply about your personal rights. And you are willing and ready to give people their walking papers if they don't honor your boundaries and pay heed to your demands. Tone it down a bit because you can reach a win-win conclusion if you employ diplomacy and a little charm goes a long way. Also, pay attention to any health concerns you might have with blood sugar and you kidneys. You could also suffer from headaches if you repress your anger and don't find a healthy outlet to express your needs.

Second House: Your concern is negotiating fair contracts with people and companies that help you get your talents and skills out in the world. Your life falls out of balance if you don't walk your talk. Know your values and live and breathe them for best results. A flow of money is possible if you play fair in the sandbox while also advocating for your side of the bargain.

Third House: You especially must watch for any passive-aggressive tendencies, especially with siblings, neighbors, and in short-distance communication. Otherwise, this is a wonderful time to send correspondence, take a short trip, or to get involved with K-12 education. You could however, run into communication difficulties with a cousin or sibling. Remember to speak softly and to carry a stick which just means to set boundaries in how other people communicate with you.

Fourth House: It's time to renovate your home or to clear up miscommunication with your mother. A cluttered home equals a cluttered mind, so clear out any clutter from your home to liberate your mind. This is also a time to negotiate a good deal on a new house or to sell a home. Create harmony in your home.

Fifth House: Throw a dinner party where you can pair off single friends and colleagues. You want to play matchmaker or you want to delve into the performing arts. Perhaps, you feel like taking risks, or dating someone new. And this is a good time to meet new people who become friends.

Sixth House: Protect yourself from low blood sugar, obsesity, and diabetes by drinking plenty of water and cutting back, if not cutting out sugar. Get your health in balance by getting your daily routine in balance. This is also a good time to settle any disagreements you have with people that work for you. And take care of the health of your pets too.

Seventh House: This is the Libra House and when the New Moon falls in the 7th House it's a wonderful time to work on your partnerships. It's also a good time to meet potential partners through dating and if you've been dating a while, why not get engaged? Settle legal disputes. And sign new contracts on the day of the New Moon and after it. This is also a good day to tie the knot.

Eight House: If you find that the people holding the purse strings are also your abusers, then end those partnerships or arrangements around the time of the New Moon. This is also a time to protect yourself with sexual partners if you don't want to bring babies into the world. It is also time to settle tax bills or disputes. And if you are signing any new contracts, read the fine print because there's  a good chance that the contract is in favor of the other party and not you. Negotiate.

Ninth House: Sign publishing or other legal contracts now. You might also embark on a journey of higher education by enrolling at a university. This is a wonderful time for cultural exchange because you are at your charming best. Long-distance travel and long-distance communication go well. And you could meet the love of your life overseas or you meet someone from overseas and fall in love. The Libra New Moon in the 9th goes well for diplomats.

Tenth House: Start a new job now or take your career to a new level. You do this best when you redefinine your image through new clothing, a new hairstyle, and by smoothing out your communication skills. If you are job-seeking, then now is a good time to take professionals out to coffee and network. When the Sun and Moon transit through the 10th House, you are in the spotlight.

Eleventh House: If you are an advocate or an activist then use Libra diplomacy to educate the public about your cause. Go on speaking tours or advocate through online media. Join a cause or network with likeminded people. Networking in general goes well. I see legal situations with large corporations settling on the side of the people or the public.

Twelfth House: If you feel invisible like no one is even listening to you, then use this time to slip behind the veil and get involved with spiritual groups and classes. Or if you want to go it alone, hone your intuition, channel higher spirits, or take a yoga class. Invisibility has its perks. Lay low and get some rest to recharge your batteries. Meditate. Buddhists are favored with this transit.

What's your hero's quest. Sign up for a personal astrology reading and find out. I also give channel and coaching sessions as well as, card readings. It will get busier during the fall months so sign up soon. Prepare for the changes in the wind in November.

Saturn Direct on September 6, 2018---Jump Start The Rebuilding Process


Saturn Direct--Let the Rebuilding Process Begin

If you've felt that you are lacking bodily strength or the stamina to complete projects, this is because Saturn has been retrograde since April 17. The good news is that Saturn goes direct on September 6. However, we feel frustrated that our lives are not moving forward because Saturn has been stationary at 2 degrees (RX) since mid-August. And even after the planet goes direct it stays at 2 degrees for most of September.

Interestingly, 2 degrees is critical for 2018. The Mars and Uranus square took place exact at 2 degrees. Uranus has been stationed at 2 degrees since July 1. And 2 degrees feels like someone dipping their feet into the water. It's not moving forward really and not moving backwards, at least not as quickly as we would like. (I have my N Node at 2 degrees Cancer).

And if any of us have a Node or planet at 2 degrees in any sign this feels irritating when an outer planet stays at 2 degrees for a several weeks. It is an itch that we can't scratch. It breeds a restlessness or anticipation of an unknown event. And that's not all that is strange about the September 6, 2018 chart for Saturn. The configuration are often out-of-sign or just plain wonky.

But let's look at the Saturn transit first. When Saturn is at 2 degrees backwards or forwards, it forms an exact trine with Uranus in Taurus. And in this chart, the planets pull in Mercury at 0 degrees Virgo. And this is kind of a repeat of the Grand Earth Trine that appeared in the Pisces Full Moon and the Mars RX charts except it was the Sun in the early degrees of Virgo. We are poised and grounded but life circumstances seem to be stagnating. It's as if we have all the pieces in place but we can't start the vehicle to move forward.

Saturn has been in the pause mode or at least the Saturnian parts of ourselves has retreated from the world of ambition and achievement. And for some folks there have been injuries with bones, teeth, and connective tissue to heal during the Saturn retrograde period. I actually got tendonitis in my thumb after Saturn turned RX and it is still on the mend. The family dog had teeth problems that were finally resolved right before Saturn turning direction.

There might have been healing with authority figures or in regard to authority. And add to that Saturn is in a square with Chiron at 0 degrees Aries, we might be traveling back to our earliest years to resolve our fear or our resentment toward authority.

And then there are all the people who lost their homes or their employment due to fluctuations in the market, immigration situations and natural disasters. It has been a year of enormous losses anyway. And if you are one of these people expect Saturn to bring rebuilders and rebuilding into your life. Just make sure that you don't return to the same old structures you had before. Imagine if you were one of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf blew down your house. Wouldn't you build it of heavier material if you had a second chance? Saturn is bringing us second chances.

And that is what Saturn at 2 degrees Capricorn (and in December at 11 degrees) tells us to do. To rebuild our lives on solid structure. To rebuild our bones and connective tissue. To take better care of our skin. To rest and work in equal measure. And to even rebuild our finances if we have been careless, especially when Saturn was in Sagittarius (2015-17).

We know this about Saturn. It is a karmic planet that brings restrictions, delays, hardship, and challenges to test our metal. The commitments we make when Saturn is in Capricorn and when Saturn is direct have endurance and can go the distance. And yet, many people don't feel comfortable when Saturn moves direct and takes us through initiations and rites of passage.

Saturn also rules old age and wisdom as well as, patience. An elderly person with a healthy Saturn has patience and acts as a mentor. Whereas, an elderly person with a weak Saturn character is crochety and resentful of youth. We've all met this type of person and we certainly don't enjoy riding a bus or subway car with them.

If you have a Capricorn Rising, Capricorn Sun, or Capricorn Moon or many planets in the 10th House of your Natal Chart then you have a Saturnian personality. You know how to conserve energy and you tend to also conserve money as well as, to reserve judgement of others. You move more slowly in the world and you possess great patience, even if you feel like you don't. And you develop physically and mentally more slowly than others so you age more gracefully.

I'll give you some good examples of Capricorn people who aged well: Cary Grant, Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and Vicky Peterson and Susanah, Hoffs from the Bangles. David Bowie also had his Sun in Capricorn and as he grew older and wiser, he also developed into an exceptional business person. These are Saturnian people and they represent a wide spectrum of Saturn. A Saturnian person does not toss in the towel because of a perceived failure. They see that as a challenge to become stronger and more resistant to failure. However, they can also become to sober and authoritative and come off as uncaring to more sensitive types.

So, when Saturn was retrograde as it does every year for around 4 to 5 months, we conserve our energy. We conserve money and resources, and we probably save money too during those months. We simply don't have the physical energy to purchase big ticket items though some people defy this energy anyway. It is a time of preparing for the future, hunkering down, and dealing with situations that are right in front of us, rather than a year away.

On the day Saturn turns direct, we have 2 Golden Triangles representing opportunities. The first opportunity (not the first time we've experienced this triangle) includes Neptune, Jupiter, and Pluto and it is about healing our subconscious so that we ascend spiritually.

The other triangle includes the Virgo Sun, Jupiter in Scorpio (again) and Pluto in Capricorn. And I feel that we get to step back and reassess our lives so that we rebuild on more solid ground. All that Scorpio and Pluto energy has brought on inescapable transformation which left chaos in the wake. And this energy helps us to gain the strength to move forward.

Some of the challenges in this chart includes an out-of-sign Grand Square with Uranus, Mars, Venus and the Moon. Two of these planets are considered feminine and two are considered masculine. So it feels like there is a deadlock between the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine or is it a standoff. "How can we experience this union," asks the Divine Feminine to the Divine Masculine, "if men and women are not treated like equals?" And on one hand the feminine longs to unite with the masculine but she pulls up a yield sign. "Wait a minute, guys! Not so fast."

Obviously, there is much healing that must happen before this union occurs, including forgiving resentment for centuries of the mistreatment of the Divine Feminine. And this theme is further emphasized by an out-of-sign yod that includes Mars, Chiron, and Mercury. And this reminds me of children or the inner child not able to move forward until we resolve those old issues with authority that hide in our subconscious minds. Finally, the Sun opposes Neptune saying that we will no longer suffer delusions. Meaning, we want all the facts before ploughing forward.

No matter how you view Saturn changing directions, it is going to feel more like a bump in the road than a hiccup. And it goes direct a week after Mars turned direct and a little over two weeks when Mercury went direct. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are still retrograde. And this autumn Venus goes retrograde for a month. And the theme for 2018, still is to prepare for the inevitable ascension process whether you are in the first, second, third or other wave of ascenders.

Those of you in the first and second waves have a strong Saturn in your chart and have taken on the huge mantle of responsibility, as Saturn would expect. And you'll also have a lot of natal traffic to Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron. I think you know who you are. Keep on keeping on. You have the strength and the stamina to reach the finish line.
