Jupiter & Uranus Planetary Stations August 2019

Today Jupiter changes direction from retrograde to Direct, while Uranus reverses from Direct to Retrograde. Each change in direction promises a new pulse of energy either in extroverted expansion with Jupiter, or introspectively with a degree of restraint with Uranus.

 If you think back over the past 5 months, since early April, when Jupiter began its retrograde, you may recognize this period as one of fewer opportunities to expand socially or business-wise easily. The Jupiter retrograde demands that we prepare first before opportunities appear. We must be sure of the direction we want to go. Often with Jupiter, we can have doors open and we go through them without forethought to where they may lead. This past 5 months gave us the opportunity to clarify in which direction we really want to grow before we expand.

 With the Uranus change of direction, this has to do with insight and innovation. We may think we are being courageous and daring, inventive and free-thinking, but we are just following the set-up narratives and paths that society lays before us. The question to ask yourself now is: Can I be as creative as possible without the restrictions of fitting in socially? Do I want to live a dynamic continually evolving existence and be constantly stimulated even as I look for security in my everyday life? These are the questions we will all be asking ourselves as we move forward through the Uranus retrograde.

When Uranus goes direct, Jan. 12, 2020, we will be in the midst of the forming Triple Conjunction in Capricorn of outer planets Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto. This is a time when we will be facing structural changes and restrictions from without, and will need to make either fearless and bold, or limiting and fearful choices as to how we want to proceed. If you are intimidated by drastic change, while Uranus is retrograde it’s the time to look at your options. During this period we can decide if more of the same is actually going to choke our lives into predictable (but ultimately less secure situations), rather than taking the leap and facing the unknown that could set us free. Remember, as secure as we try to make our lives, we are all subject to the generational effects of the outer planets.

 Like it or not, evolving may be scary in the moment, but where the waves of time transport us may ultimately be to better and more exciting places that are actually more realistically secure.  The new social and economic changes that society (and the outer planets), guarantee we will soon undergo are a sure thing.

 Many times I have lectured on the Currency Wars in which we are currently involved with China and other nations. These form  the undercurrent of the trade talks and deals that are seemingly never-ending, and what has led to many of the tragedies globally, that have deceptively been represented as ‘naturally occurring’ events. Whether you already know of the term “false flag” or have the curiosity to look it up, this is all part of the waking up that comes from these Uranus-related (shock)  events and release of the Saturn-Neptune (deception brought to reality) cycle we are now experiencing.  Perhaps the questions over the Epstein suicide/murder sweeping social media is the beginning of the waking up of the remainder of the masses that have been sleeping through the false flags of the past 50 years. Airplane ‘accidents’ (Boeing Honeywell Uninterruptible autopilot), Hurricanes and weather control (StopTheCrime.net), Fires (DEW’s –Directed Energy Weapons) and the suiciding of multiple witnesses who have information implicating political figures in heinous crimes will be coming to light for those with their heads in the sand.

Regardless of whether you are awake and aware, or just beginning to see the truth, the end-game will affect us all. In economic issues, the value of the dollar versus Asian currencies has been the undercurrent of these conflicts and events for decades. The scales will eventually be tipped to favor the other side in these struggles. The truth always rises, and for those, through whose tireless efforts deserve the opportunity to prevail, their time has come.

Uranus in Taurus, Mercury Retrograde & the Illusory Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox 2019

Today Mercury stations to go retrograde (important to communications) and Uranus shifts into Taurus (finances, markets,technology) early Wednesday. These transits are leading up to a very sketchy Spring Equinox in DC.  See  the chart above with Mercury retrograde in Pisces, where this planet ruling over our thinking is at its least logical. Mercury is also conjunct to Neptune (the trident) on the Descendant. I would be hard-pressed to find a more confusing, mind-swirling and inaccurate vibe this chart delineates. I would see it largely in terms of communications  we hear in proliferating stories emanating from the mass media. How much of these stories produce a drug-like (Neptune) dependency on hearing more and more of the same narratives that scarcely ever move forward or make a difference?

Look to see where you may be perpetuating a dream like mind fog in order to escape reality, as both of these placements indicate. Jupiter making a square angle (challenge) to both the Mercury Neptune and the moon in Virgo here imply a magnification to the messages we both get and give. On the positive side, this is good for pr if you have the goods to back up your message!

Double check your work, as always, during this Mercury retrograde, and re-work contracts and anything in writing before you publish or sign. Wait until after Mercury goes direct on March 29th to avoid problems and having to re-work commitments or contracts after-the-fact.

There is an emphasis on partnerships in this chart as well, which I should mention applies to the coming Spring season. Also – there is a grand earth trine in this Equinox chart, so look for opportunities to work with the issues and energies brought up from the January eclipses that direct a lot of the focus now from the January Cancer & /Capricorn eclipses.

Uranus enters Taurus, and I see this as a flip for better or worse, depending on the recent trajectory of issues on the areas of finance, income and personal values whether in your personal life or on the greater life stage. If you have not valued your worth as highly as you should, this period is a time when you will break out and expect more for your efforts. This can apply to the area of your chart where Taurus sits, so think of it as a new cycle beginning where you can  look for stagnant areas where you can revolutionize your approach. Uranus spends about 7 years in each sign, so it will be in Taurus until 2026.

Jupiter still in its own sign of Sagittarius continues to add optimism and opportunity to the areas where this transit occurs in your chart, your business’ chart , in your relationship charts etc.

Fall Forecast 2018

A look at some of the outer planets to plan your fall trajectory.

What to look out for –

Jupiter is now traveling direct in Scorpio – so those with planets  or points in this sign, or trine or sextile Scorpio – as in the water and earth signs, should be getting new opportunities and feeling positive about the future. A sense of optimism comes with Jupiter transits, so also look to the house where Jupiter is transiting. Jupiter enters its home sign of Sagittarius on November 8th  where abundance and expansion in all things that broaden our lives and open our minds will start to come about.

Saturn, the builder, is now moving direct as well. Saturn structures our lives by pushing us to make thorough preparations for success. The direct motion of Saturn also assists with projects that were held up from progressing this summer.

October 6th Venus, planet of love and money, will go retrograde. What to do: resolve issues from a past romance, rekindle with an old love, find accounting errors and collect past due monies. What not to do: start a new romance, make large purchases such as an apartment, piece of art etc., do not try a new hairstyle as your stylist will have a different aesthetic than you do, same with cosmetic surgery. Only corrective surgery may be warranted.  Photo shoots are also not recommended during this time for the same reason as the photographer will have a different perspective what looks good. Venus retrograde lasts until Nov. 16th and leaves the shadow on Dec. 10th.

On October 8th, we finally leave the shadow of the draining Mars retrograde from this summer. Scroll down to my How To Use Mars retrograde article from a couple months back to see if your experiences mirrored those described in my article. Projects that you may have been working on tirelessly are finally able to move forward with greater momentum now. Start to take action, but the real push will be most productive after the 8h of October.

Looking ahead to Nov. 8th, Uranus goes back into Aries where it will finally make its last station in that sign the first week of 2019. This should be your final call to straighten out any chaotic or disruptive circumstances or relationships, and to re-focus on your personal needs in whichever area of your chart where Aries is. If you don’t have your chart or can’t read it, contact me for a personal forecast with all the planets, return and retrogrades etc. affecting your chart for the coming year.

Lunar Eclipse, Mars & Mercury Retrograde

Lunar Eclipse – Jul. 27, 2018

July 27th we have a Full moon/Lunar eclipse. This eclipse falls at 4 Aquarius 44 and triggers the Mars retrograde which is sitting less than one degree from the eclipse degree.  You may be feeling held back from progressing in whichever area of your birth chart this eclipse falls, or you may literally need to contain your emotions this week. Because the eclipse is in Aquarius, some issues that may come up related to unspoken emotions around friendships, and frustration due to detachment in your emotions toward others, or of someone else toward you.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is remain objective while emotions are being activated with an eclipse. The idea is when the moon is full, the light shines on the area or degree of the full moon. But when the full moon is eclipsed, emotions from past events are both stirred up from the past and repressed simultaneously. Reacting as opposed to reflecting will have a negative effect on relationships. As always with eclipses, don’t react as we are in the middle of these next two eclipses that finish the series this summer. So meditate on the past and family so you can release issues through the South node, and hold back on actions until you find the most optimal solution to any issues on the table now.

Other aspects to this eclipse when looked at from our nation’s capital (see chart above) add challenges in our position due to the area where this eclipse lies plus issues in the financial arena. Our finances are troubled here because of a T-square to Uranus in Taurus and a sesquiquadrate (square + a semisquare = 135°) to a very debilitated Venus in Virgo. The challenge seems to be playing out with the economic deficit that our administration is attempting to address with trade wars… which aren’t solving the problem.

[[ **NOTE – The day after this post went live. Trump ordered an end to the Trade War with the EU.]]

And if we look at the Federal Reserve chart (see chart below), it is being decimated right now with both the last eclipse on its Ascendant and this eclipse now in the 7th house of open enemies or rivals where the eclipse degree and South Node (old debts) sit. Trump recently made a comment about the Federal Reserve and Central Bank having policies that were set up to hurt the economy. Well, it certainly made the bankers rich! ..but to the detriment of the people. With Pluto (transformation/power plays) slowing down to station on the Fed chart’s Descendant (same as 7th house – rivals/enemies or partners) in October, we are looking at a battle to the death over this institution’s role or even existence.

If you haven’t been to my talks, I have offered many solutions to protect your savings when this change in the currency takes place. Contact me to buy my “Practical Preparedness for the 2010’s and Beyond” packet or CD, or copies of my recent information rich workshop on DVD.

And what could make an eclipse season more interesting than the flubs and fixes needed during a Mercury Retrograde? Not much! This summer’s retrograde runs from the eclipse day July 27th to August 20th. Don’t sign, don’t buy, and try not to put important messages in writing. They may be misunderstood or need revision, so do your research first. But do get your electronics fixed now!

Hurry Up and Wait. The Retrogrades of April

Saturn & Pluto Retrograde April 2018

Yes, spring is here, and you’d better get set to make some high priority goals sooner than later. Why? Because the upcoming planet transits are better suited to go back to define and refine prior projects and your self than to forge ahead with something new.

Life has a forward then backwards then forwards movement. If we align ourselves with the Cosmos, there is a flow of being in the moment and not fighting what ‘is’.  We are now right in the middle of Mercury retrograde, when communications, dealings, paperwork and decisions all need careful consideration and attention so projects don’t go awry. Double check your work and appointments and all should be fine. But just as Mercury stations to go Direct, that is when we tend to overlook things in our rush to get back to our normal breakneck pace. Additionally we have just begun to leave a conjunction of Mars (assertiveness, aggression, will) with Saturn (restriction, authority, control). Whether this related to long hours on a project, heavy physical labor, or being at odds with a boss or co-worker, today we finally began to move out of this tension ridden transit.

In terms of retrograde motion though, this month, we will feel a direct push-back from the Universe as Saturn and Pluto, two of the heavy outer planet influences, start their retrogrades on April 18th and 22nd respectively. What this means is, those issues that have been coming up for you personally as well as globally go into deep rectification mode. Saturn rules over our social rules and structure. Just when we thought it had reached a crescendo, the #TimesUp movement and disclosure will spread further into other professional fields. This movement is barely in its infancy in terms of setting straight the centuries of imbalance between the sexes. On a personal level with Saturn, what are the obligations you dutifully keep and how do these fit or no longer fit your true purpose? Making the right choice in these matters is now up to you, so navigate deliberately. Many obligations are continually pursued, contrary to our best interest, out of pure habit. We can no longer afford to have our attention scattered in this manner. Give up beating that dead horse and what you’ve already accomplished and move on to your soul’s true calling.

As for Pluto, also soon retrograding in Capricorn, this relates to the unearthing of long hidden power imbalances used personally and with others. This is similar to the patriarchal upending we’ve been seeing in the film industry, and is now due in areas relating to global power structures (trade) and imbalances between nations. The crescendo of these influences will be seen with the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in Feb. of 2020. So this is a prelude, a set-up, to get as much aligned as possible before that time. Personally – whatever house Pluto is transiting in your natal chart is in need of refinement, fine tuning and re-establishment of proper use of power. Pluto gets rid of what is no longer necessary or no longer working for our evolution.

See the chart at the top of this blog. In the bottom house (4th house) is where you will find Saturn and Pluto showing as retrograde. In between them is Mars. This is known as  beseiged.. or afflicted, unable to move. This is a very uncomfortable position and not a good time to push forward aggressively, or lash out unconsciously with temper or physical exertion. This position says pull back, withdraw, contain, reassess and wait. We are here now – and when Mars steps out from this configuration, all hell can break loose personally and worldwide with political actions. Get your priorities and especially your health in order for when this, and the Mars retrograde coming up this summer take place (more on the Mars retrograde next time).

Is the Saturn, besieged Mars and Pluto in your 3rd house? How do you use your speech and everyday thought patterns to achieve your ends? Is your mind jumping all over the place not landing on what is of importance? Are you acting out verbally? You can actually take control of this and not let Pluto take hold of you. Is Saturn, besieged Mars and Pluto soon transiting in your 10th house? Might you be undermining your career by indiscriminately overstepping authority figures or not fully owning your own power? Or are Saturn,  Mars and Pluto stuck in your 4th house and you’ve sat back thinking  home and family issues are ‘theirs’ to correct, and that you have no power to alter those problems that feel terminal?

World leaders use astrology to avoid missteps, shouldn’t you? If you don’t know where these transits are now in your chart, contact me for a personal reading or update and we can go over how best to utilize these powerful energies so that you are well-positioned, and not thrown, by this alignment, and similarly, ready for the arrival of the triple outer planet conjunction in 2020. Astrology’s best use is for timing and preparation for the times ahead, so take the advantage use it well.
