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.

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.

The Great American Eclipse – as Mercury Retrogrades

The Great American Eclipse

Not since 1918 has an eclipse path cut straight across the United States from coast to coast. On August 21st, The Great American Eclipse will do just that.  Beginning at 1:15 PM EDT the 73 mile wide lunar shadow will darken the continent from Oregon to South Carolina giving us continued observation of the event for a full 90 minutes. Not only is the visibility going to be exciting for those who have never seen an eclipse, but the over-stimulation and likely instability that eclipses have been noted scientifically to bring psychologically and physiologically is sure to bring some fluctuations to the not-so status-quo. There is no better time to get your heads out of your phones, get offline and really get centered.

Many still are now either holding onto outrage from the political and media circus we are witnessing, and some have begun to fall into complacency – read this article for a detailed opinion: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-17/navigating-through-storms-im-losing-my-sense-outrage

Things are on their way to reach a climax, and that is what these next eclipses will usher in, and necessarily so. Most people, I hate to say it, need to have a brick fall on their heads or hear an impassioned tirade like in the film “Network” to be shaken out of their apathy. And to those who have marched, protested, phone banked, donated and still find themselves at wits end – there will be more and better options soon to assist in getting things back on track personally and socially.

New Leo Moon conjunct Mas (action and ego) July 23rd 0° Leo 44” With Mars conjunct this new moon, it infuses assertiveness and action, or anger and frustration to the house in your chart and areas in your life where this lunation occurs.

We ave entered the shadow of the coming Mercury Retrograde which will color this entire eclipse period into the fall. Decisions, contracts, technology and trips all must be thought out and planned very carefully and no details left out in order for the eclipse period to not completely sabotage your efforts. Mercury begins its trek closer to the earth, peaking at the station.  During the entire period (see dates below) all details, discussions, communications, contracts, travel and technology need extra care and consideration.  Contracts and agreements will likely need to be amended if signed during the retrograde. Delay if possible. Dates and degrees are as follows:

Mercury Retro shadow – entered July 25th (slip-ups and errors in judgment begin)

Mercury Station Retrograde – August 14th

Mercury Direct Station – Sept. 6th

Mercury leaves the shadow – Sept. 19th

Full Moon Eclipse August 7th – 15° Aquarius 25” – This is the heightened period of the new moon from July 23rd. Get ample rest as this full moon will heighten issues brought up by the new moon in Leo. This eclipse brings up your relationships with others and whether or not there is a level of fairness and equality surrounding them. With this eclipse falling on Trump’s Descendant, issues with both partners and open enemies will be ‘eclipsed’ as in blocked or delayed in the coming months. Do not underestimate the power of this eclipse over circumstances going forward. If decisions on partnerships can be delayed even by a few days or a week, you will be less likely to make an error in judgment by rushing into anything. Breathe.

Full Solar Eclipse Aug 21st – 28° Leo 53” – This is the most talked about eclipse of all as it will cut directly across the United States. See the photo of the eclipse path at the top of this post. Because the moon blocks the Sun’s light, the symbolism mirrors the idea that actions will be blocked in the area in which the eclipse falls in your chart and where the eclipse path travels. For the nation, this can be interpreted as anything from grids going down to some sort of downfall to the leader and populace of the country where the eclipse path crosses. In Trump’s chart, this eclipse conjuncts his Mars. With Mars ruling Trump’s 9th house of law, he may have his powers blocked, so look for legislation to limit his ability to carry out his actions or stop actions initiated by Congress. A solar eclipse generally augurs some sort of permanent change to the area in which it falls whether geographically or in the sector of your chart. Expect extreme turnarounds in those areas. Contact me for a consultation to find out where the eclipses will occur in your chart and how to prepare and make the most of the shifts.

Keep in mind, the Mercury retrograde occurs simultaneously with these eclipses. Expect plans to be changed, minds to be changed and just like a Uranus transit, with an eclipse, expect the unexpected. When Mars crosses the eclipse degree on Sept 3rd – 4th, we can expect an aftershock or full blown explosion, figuratively or literally, as a climax to this entire nearly two month period.
