  • on breaking old patterns They carry a certain cool detachment from everyday dramas which is necessary if one is to focus on long range goals Aquarians definitely think outside the box Because there are no hard aspects in this chart and because there s such a high concentration of Aquarian energy it will be necessary to Ground Ground Ground Stay in your body by walking hiking doing yoga or any form of exercise that requires paying attention to the physical body Aquarius is an air or mental sign and it rules technology If you haven t already backed up your data do it NOW Ideas are Aquarian tools and they come in like lightening Look forward to Big Ah ha moments It s a time when you can wake up and shed an old idea or pattern in a New York nanosecond Because this is the lunar signature for the month be open to new ideas all month Of course that s always a good practice but especially now If you get a crazy idea follow the thread and see where it takes you Listen to your intuition This eclipse will encourage us to Stay Awake New Moon intentions focus on our visionary capacity What would a better world look like and what can each of us contribute to make it so Is technology a plus or minus in your life Do you own it or does it own you Is this good for you or do you sacrifice your body as a slave to the black box If you have planets in Gemini or Libra around 17 degrees this can be an easy time of shedding old patterns If you have natal planets here in the signs of Taurus Leo or Scorpio you may find your old belief systems challenged in less than pleasant ways However it falls for you try to keep in mind that new energy is being ushered in and therefore the old must go Sunday February 10 Sun conjuncts Neptune for an annual visit of bliss and confusion Huh Yes these are two sides of the same fish Neptune is that dreamy foggy spiritual planet that allows us to trip the light fantastic That dreaminess can also create a lot of confusion It s Sunday chill out There s no need to make life changing decisions today If you re feeling confused check in with a neutral person to help clear the fog Otherwise just enjoy the day Wednesday February 13 First Quarter Moon 24 degree Taurus 10 33 p m How are your New Moon goals moving along Check your list and ask yourself what you can do to further expedite your goals Thursday February 14 Valentine s Day finds Moon in Gemini This is a fun loving party moon Other than a Moon Saturn square at 5 20 p m the rest of the day looks good for celebrating the sweetness of the holiday Saturday February 16 Sun conjuncts North Node Pay attention

  • blackberry or GPS make sure you have a spare copy of information that you want to preserve and extra batteries cords etc to accompany them The time frame that I m referring to is January 24 thru February 18 It starts at 23 degrees and works backwards to 8 degrees If you have natal planets in Aquarius Taurus Leo and Scorpio or the second fifth eighth or eleventh houses you may find this time more challenging than other people will If you have natal planets in Aquarius Libra or Gemini or the third seventh or elventh houses between these degrees you may find yourself being astonished at the insight you re receiving Yes I said Aquarius and eleventh house twice How you react to situations will determine the overall outcome of your experience just like other parts of your life It s very possible that it ll start early for you I find it does for me And it s very possible that it ll be more intense at the beginning and end of the period I also find that true for me And there is a possibility that it ll be a good time for you I have a friend who actually does great during a Mercury Rx period He buys and sells houses cars etc BUT that is not the norm this being a time when communication and movement thingies get lost misplaced break down and confused as in times for appointments It can be veeerrrry frustrating I always recommend a Plan B when traveling like making sure you ve got your toothbrush and moisturizer or razor and shaving cream handy in case there s a layover or vehicular breakdown You may want to have a chocolate stash as well The best thing to do at these times

  • when a planet retrogrades it gives us an opportunity to review that area of our life where the movement is happening So if you ll look to your own natal chart find the house s where early Cancer and late Gemini sit you ll understand where this spiritual growth opportunity takes place in your life Another significant and often annoying transit is Mercury s retrogradation He ll be turning backwards January 28 at 23 degrees of Aquarius and will continue his backward movement until February 18 when he directs at 8 degrees of Aquarius If you have planets in fixed signs Taurus Leo Scorpio and Aquarius between these degrees you ll have the greater chance to examine mental concepts and constructs around group think the herd equality for all and your own unique take on life You will hopefully have some breakthroughs regarding these and other Aquarian subjects Now lets begin by looking at the New Moon chart to divine what we can about the lunar cycle of Capricorn January 8 February 5 New Moon January 8 6 37 a m 17 degrees of Capricorn As if Capricorn could be ignored ha this is a First House New Moon an excellent position for our ambitious professional drives Capricorn is all about responsibility long range planning and getting to the top of the mountain No Matter What There s a certain perceived coldness simply because Cappy will deny his own needs and feelings in order to achieve those ambitions We often find him in the background moving behind the scenes with complete clarity Meditations for this New Moon can include what you d like to accomplish professionally this year If you are retired or are a professional volunteer this meditation is also for you Whether it s your vocation or your avocation focus on goals and realistically how to achieve them You could even sketch out a business plan with dates for having certain things achieved I think of Capricorn as the goat in the gray flannel suit perfectly tailored top of the line but quiet and sedate The color for this moon is the color of a snowy January sky gray As we move forward on Saturday January 12 there s a Venus Uranus square which can bring surprises in romance It s a great date night If you re not attached you can still go out for a pizza and flirt with the wait staff This transit is fun and exciting but short lived So enjoy the moment while you have it Tuesday January 15 is First Quarter Moon 10 33 p m Check your list to see how you re moving forward to accomplish your goals By this time things should be moving along Using a farming metaphor your seeds should be sprouting now Saturday January 19 gives us another occultation by Moon of Mars Last month s occultation on the 23rd wasn t exact in my neighborhood I could still see a faint red glow as Moon

  • from old memories of family partners children and friends Many feel inadequate because their wallets don t match their hearts Many feel overwhelmed with their To Do lists To understate the obvious it s a stressful time As I look at this month s astro the feeling that jumps out at me is the necessity to stay in the present moment to make decisions in Real Time based on What s Happening Now That may be changing every few hours or even minutes so it s important to put on your wizard s hat and stay centered and compassionate with yourself and others as we move through these challenging times New Moon December 9 at 12 40 p m 17 degree Sagittarius finds 5 planets Mercury Moon Sun Jupiter and Pluto stretched throughout the 9th and 10th houses the most prominent positions in the zodiac These houses hold the Sag and Capricorn energy I ve been addressing already Religions ethics beliefs spirituality 9th house in the world arena 10th house are further emphasized because of these placements Mars is not quite opposing them but will be in a couple weeks at Full Moon Tuesday December 11 The Jupiter Pluto conjunction is exact at 2 26 p m at 28 degree Sag The latter part of the month will be the most challenging particularly December 18 23 and December 26 January 2nd Saturn the Schoolmaster turns retrograde December 19th Whenever Father Time slows down and turns around whether it s retrograde or direct we feel his element lead at work Saturn transits feel heavy as though we re walking through glue So maybe that special gift for your best friend is backordered for three weeks and won t arrive before the right date Or maybe you eat too much at the Saturday nite party and feel like you ve gained five pounds Or maybe your workload feels overwhelming and you can t get it done before your holiday vacation Whatever it is remember Saturn is in Virgo so look to your natal chart to see where this will happen in your life Saturn is trying to tell you to clean up your act On December 20 Sun pays his annual visit to Pluto and we can expect things to breakdown explode and die Power struggles abound Objects relationships jobs etc that are worn out will no longer function We ll be forced to mend what we can and throw out what just won t work Two days later December 22 Sun enters Capricorn and the wheel of the year turns again We enter the realm of Winter the rtest night of the year the time when Northern aboriginal peoples performed rituals to call the Sun back from the Tropic of Capricorn Earth is also three quarters of the way through her yearly journey around the Sun and squares what s called the Aries Point or 0 degree Aries one of the four cardinal points of the solar year This is a

  • Neptune in the first is water water water And all these planets in fiery Leo just might make some steam and get him moving in a personal and positive direction New Moon intentions in Leo with this configuration can center around how can I use my personal power as king or queen of my domain to promote cooperation in its highest state Of course we want to use orange or yellow candles for this meditation and I ll light a blue one too to help bring in the Neptunian balance of all that ego A big treat tonite is the Perseids meteor shower peaking Because it s New Moon as in no bright lite in the sky and providing it s a clear one the fireworks will be spectacular Find a spot away from artificial light pollution and let yourself fly to the heavens Tomorrow Moon exactly conjuncts Venus and Saturn and squares Mars also Sun exactly conjuncts Neptune so this passage will be with us for a couple of days This signature will be repeated throughout the lunar month with squares and oppositions at first quarter full moon and third quarter Hang loose as we move thru all this Relationships will have to tread that razor s edge between what I want and what my partner wants as the transits play themselves out this month Tuesday August 14 Mercury exactly opposes Neptune a transit of liars and cheats If a deal sounds too good to be true it probably is The bright side is it s a great day for writing poetry or other spiritual pursuits At best communication will idealistic and spiritual Wednesday August 15 Venus trines Pluto and it s a day of sexual potency Desire is the key word here Venus and Pluto together are like a volcano The good news about this transit is that it s a trine much easier to live with than the harder aspects conjunction opposition and square If you can t be with the one you love then by all means do something you love especially something physical to release this energy Friday August 17 Venus rules this sweet day Moon is in Libra the home sign of Venus and both Sun and Mercury conjunct her Moon trines Neptune It s a very sweet loving romantic emotional day Balance art aesthetics and peace are primary themes Saturday August 18 Mercury opposes Saturn A Very Serious Day great for research writing and detail oriented tasks You may want to spend some time alone today withdrawing to think about the world Monday August 20 First Quarter Moon 28 degree Scorpi o One week after New Moon she now squares all the planets she sat next to a week ago Moon squares Sun Venus Saturn and Neptune You re liable to feel a plethora of emotions today from gushy to stern How are you doing with your New Moon intentions Tuesday August 22 Sun conjuncts Saturn and it s a day of hard

  • Since this is a trine I d call it a sweet awakening waiting to happen By all means pay attention and use this time to enlighten yourself Now let s begin with New Moon June 14th at 24 degree Gemini 11 13 p m Gemini is the eternal child the twins of course and it s the job of Gemini to both perceive and communicate perception Geminis make good writers storytellers witnesses and observers Gemini is a double sign and represents both yin and yang masculine and feminine It s usually depicted with both a man and a woman signifying these joint energies Fun loving witty intellectually sharp and like the wind ephemeral Geminis are the quintessential butterflies always flitting from one beautiful flower to the next sucking the sweetness out of one and hopping to the next one Gemini is a mutable air sign Mutable signs transform and morph life situations they assist in the death and rebirth process Air signs represent the mind the cognitive thinking process It is the nature of the Gemini to observe perceive collect data and share it just like a butterfly or bumblebee pollinating as he moves from flower to flower Like the wind always changing don t expect consistency with a Gemini or you ll be sorely disappointed The energy of the twins swings between the polarities of feminine and masculine ultimately finding its center in the union of both This New Moon falls in the fifth house of creativity self expression and children It is the house ruled by Leo and the sun Take advantage of this New Moon and do something creative and fun to express yourself Play charades build a tinker toy castle make a painting write a poem and take your partner into the forest and make love Have fun Mars and Saturn sextile the New Moon assisting in the Get Up and Go department of life giving you momentum to carry thru on whatever projects you initiate today and giving that Gemini jumpiness a little stability and gravity Pluto opposes the New Moon bringing depth to the Gemini energy anchoring it in the mysteries of life and death the occult Neptune trines this transit adding a layer of spirituality and confusion to the mix Friday June 15th Mercury retrogrades at 12 Cancer and the fun begins See the opening for this explanation Sunday June 17th Father s Day starts off with a Moon Mars square Could be a heavy day for dads and kids This is a Speak First Think Later transit Tuesday June 19th Today is the exact Sun Pluto opposition Expect power struggles and breakdowns The good news is that breakthroughs follow breakdowns It s a once a year event so do what you can to milk this transit for all it s worth Venus and Jupiter trine each other which may soften the hard edge of this transit Together they create a sweet overindulgence transit Hide your credit cards Also watch the calories going
