Jupiter in Sagittarius: High Hopes & A Reality Check

Jupiter moved into Sagittarius today. Jupiter is a social planet, outside of our personal boundaries, and brings like-minded groups together. With Jupiter changing signs into its home sign, this brings an openness to new opportunities and expands your optimism. Issues in the Sagittarius areas of your chart seem to be opening up and going well. Jupiter opens your awareness through these opportunities that come in these areas of your chart as well, so you may generally be more positive here than negative.

While you may think Jupiter is Sagittarius is automatically great for all Sagittarians or your Sagittarius planets, there are several mitigating factors to be aware of.  High hopes do not always mean getting everything you want, and not getting what you think you want is sometimes an even better learning experience.

While there is a freeing up of the need to dig deep and feel intensely as you reached out (or retreated) while Jupiter was in Scorpio, the overall tone with this transit is the focus on beliefs and philosophies. It’s hard to go anywhere these days without hearing some political topic being spoken about or debated. Jupiter also can bring out overly boisterous opinions and views to individuals and groups that band together. So depending on your relationship to the topic of the day and whether it fuels you or drains you, this transit can have a variety of effects. Be aware of your personal needs; to participate or not, within the public displays that come your way.

Astrological charts with other fire planets and/or angles, (in trine aspect) can seem to have the most beneficial opportunities fall in their laps now. These can always be mitigated by other harder alignments in the chart.

So what can go wrong? For starters, Jupiter has been in good aspect to Saturn all the while it was passing through Scorpio the past year or so. This was positive for drive and follow through on a course of action.

Jupiter will, in a few months, be making a square to Neptune (fantasy, vision and dreams). This brings up the idea of making dreams a reality in a big way. You’ll need to do a reality check with what you are actually doing to make your dreams happen or see if your ideas are not possible to carry out. Start testing your goals now to see if your vision can be concretely manifested or you may find you are wasting your time.

Where is Jupiter in your chart now, and what aspects is it making by progression or solar arc and how is it triggering your inner and outer life? If you want a current map as well as one for the months ahead, contact me for a personal reading and we will go over the best times to use Jupiter’s transits as well as all the other planets’ moves to optimize your efforts.

Venus Retrograde – Old Loves & New Values

This year from October 5th to November 15th Venus will be retrograde from 11° Scorpio to 25° Libra. What does it mean when Venus is retrograde? Venus stands for love, values and pleasures. Love can be harder to come by either romantically or with friendships, and the inflow of money can slow down. Now is also the time for review of what you value in closeness with others as well as your worth for your work.  During this part of Venus’ cycle, old loves or friends either come back into your life to be reassessed or finally dismissed.

Things/people come back:

  • Old loves
  • Friends and people from the past
  • Objects we lost may now be found

What to do when these things return?

  • Reassess who the person/object is and decide what relevant value they had in your life. Now is a good time to appreciate what you learned or gained from the relationship. Resolve the past, let it go, and move on. On occasion, this cycle can bring back a relationship that will remain in your life – but that would depend on numerous factors being present in your chart.

What not to do when these things return?

  • Do not get attached to the past – this is a cycle for review.

A New Relationship?

This Venus retrograde begins in Libra, the sign of balance, justice and relationships. This is an ideal time for things to be evened out and put back into proper balance in relationships with others. With a new love, the retrograde Venus will likely have the new love only present part of the picture when around you or communicating with you.  This may not be deliberate – but you still will not see the entire scenario in which you may be getting involved. You will not see their entire motivation, nor know the safety of the situation. This includes intimacy – you don’t know the person’s past yet, or who they fully are, so play it safe and wait.

This is not the time to make a big purchase – because if you are impulsive, you will spend more than necessary, and may regret the purchase later. Objects of art, a new home, anything to do with décor or beautifying yourself (haircut/color, cosmetic surgery etc.) will all not turn out as planned. Either more research needs to be done on your part, or the information you are getting is not complete. You may have a different aesthetic than the person selling you the surgery, the haircut or that new iPhone – so you will need to be cautious. I knew someone who went into a photo shoot and the photographer decided to touch-up all the photos before showing them to the client. The photographer made the client look 18 when they were 40, so none of the photos could be used! Different aesthetic = expensive lesson. Another person bought an apartment during the retrograde, and it wasn’t until the sale was nearly complete and the scaffolding came down across the street that they saw their view was a real eyesore – a hot pink awning. They ultimately did not complete the sale and lost most of their deposit.

The fortunate part of Venus Retrograde –

In purchases, often at this time, someone needs to sell something to make money fast and you have the opportunity to buy the item at a much reduced price! Someone gets the short end of the stick.. so let it be the ‘other’ person! It is a good time to go to estate sales, yard sales, and sales in general. As long as you heed the advice that you may buy something and change your mind once you get it home, and do not overspend, you can get some great buys during Venus retrograde.

Other things you can expect are for money to be delayed that you are counting on, or surprises with money and partnerships. Review what you value and your personal values during this cycle. You may find a job is not up to the same level as your more confident self-view at this time.  If that is the case, look for a better job. The same goes for relationships. While fighting during this retrograde may seem productive, find out where you may not be feeling valued in the relationship and communicate that and make alterations. Try not to be secretive, as Venus is in Scorpio for much of this retrograde and that makes us want to hide our deeper feelings.

Unsure of a new love? Think you should break up? Get a new job? What does it mean if Venus is going to ‘station on a planet or angle of your chart? A professional look at your chart can clarify in what area(s) exactly what is happening in your life with the Venus retrograde. Contact me and let’s see whether Cupid or Venus Retrograde is bringing in new or old loves into your life.

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.

Final Summer Solar Eclipse ~ New Moon in Leo

Eclipse series come in threes, and we are now  – Aug. 11th, experiencing the 3rd and final of the summer series of eclipses for 2018. Most of the areas in our lives that needed attention for clearing out were likely addressed with the last full moon eclipse that was conjunct the south node. The south node has to do with outworn areas of our lives that we may be holding onto out of habit. Whether you left or lost a job, a pet, a lover or a friend keep on mind the sooner you let go of the person, friend or emotion, the sooner you will release the pain associated with holding onto something that is leaving your life.

Where this Solar eclipse lands in your chart highlights new activities for the coming months. In many cases this eclipse falls in the opposing house from the last eclipse. This will take you in an entirely different direction, and highlights exactly why you had to let go of the dead weight from the last eclipse on July 27th. In the sign Leo is where we look for the joy we hopefully experienced in our childhood in this area. Have you been avoiding this due to responsibilities you no longer need? That’s a good question to ask yourself if you feel stuck between letting go and moving on right now.

In some cases, this eclipse will also expose weaknesses in the house where it occurs. Whether this it manifests as a health issue that must be addressed, a financial emergency or a psychological breakdown or breakthrough, look at the positive side of these occurrences and see that you are being alerted to deal with these issues now before they get worse and out of hand.

A quick note that this eclipse falls on the (correct) Ascendant for the President, and will likely augur an entirely new chapter of his personal effectiveness. He may be letting go of many daily activities that were draining his focus (tweets?) as shown by the recent lunar eclipse and delegating these tasks to others.

The yod to the solar eclipse point in the Solar eclipse chart (see above) augurs an awakening of our collective egos as we watch the developments on the world stage. The truth has never been so hard to come by  with the base of the yod in deceptive Neptune along with Pluto, ruling the masses. As Internet superpowers continue to block alternative media in all areas, it is incumbent upon all to listen to ideas that test the status quo in your personal beliefs and past education, or conditioning as it may be.

1/2 price Eclipse readings by phone are available for both old and new clients for the next week or so and after that they will go away. Contact me here asap to schedule. This will also be my last blog post for a while, as I am going to take advantage of the eclipse energy myself. So enjoy what is left of the summer and stay tuned for some exciting developments.

 

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!

If you’d like clarity on your current situation and to get the most out of  the eclipses and the retrogrades this season by seeing how they align with your chart, contact me for a Special Summer Eclipse reading by phone at 1/2 the price of a regular reading.

Eclipse Season Summer 2018 Begins

Eclipse season begins with the first of three eclipses on Thursday July 12, 2018 (See chart above.)

The key issues with this eclipse are catharsis and the preliminary phase of reconstruction of some aspect of, or key area of your life.  First is recognition of the process you are dealing with, then letting go, and finally rebuilding. This is likely to apply to the area of your chart where this eclipse falls. It could be an issue of letting go of ego or status in relation to work, relationship, family, finances or anything else. You may have been trying to build up this area for some time as shown by the eclipse opposite Pluto in Capricorn. Capricorn is the sign of the slow building of structures. Pluto is not any fun to deal with – but it does clear out what is unnecessary.

Eclipses of the Sun have to do with your ego, your soul and your sense of centered-ness. It is now time to let go of aspects of this area you may have been building upon that might be taking you slightly off-course. Life provides a series of checks and balances to refine our direction to our most beneficial soul purpose. The eclipse falls in Cancer, so in this case this letting go is part of the process of focusing on a clearer sense of your own purpose in what you personally create or provide to the world and/or to upgrading your own self-nurturing.

Because eclipses can be disorienting when they hit your chart directly, I wanted to get this post up in time for the 1st eclipse.  I will post more in the forthcoming days on the next two eclipses, so stay tuned. As always, get rest and try to wait and not to react to people or surprises that pop up within the first few days of the eclipse. And if you’d like to be personally prepared for the often emotional ups and downs this eclipse and how the next two eclipses align with your chart, contact me for a Special eclipse reading by phone at 1/2 the price of a regular reading.
