No major aspects. Void of Course all morning. Looks like another relaxing Sunday.
1:57am – Moon (Sagittarius) trine Uranus (Aires). Independent and visionary, you’ll want to do something original or different. Void of Course begins.
12:33pm – Moon enters Capricorn. Emotions limited for the next couple of days. Material things, career and security concerns predominate. Best to eat a warm meal.
MONDAY 7/18 Serious Monday.
10:37am – Moon (Capricorn) sextile Neptune (Pisces) Dreamy morning.
6:24pm – Moon conjunct Pluto (Capricorn) In Capricorn, could bring up power struggles and isolationism as well as uncompromising attitudes. Can make people intense, paranoid, and accident prone. Be careful of impulsive actions. Lots of energy for doing something useful.
11:28pm – Mercury (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Read a book, or better yet, write one. No better aspect for writing than this one. In natal chart, the mark of the author. In fire signs, so your work is sure to be inspirational. Excellent for all kinds of communication, particularly the important kind, where there’s important information being conveyed. Learning, listening, gaining the attention of authority figures and impressing them with your abilities, all these are sure to work out for the better today.
Good opportunity to gather your thoughts and make a positive impression. Although it’s a trine, it still slows down the mind and helps you organize your thoughts. Good for planning and good for business as people will know what they want. People tend to be more serious and concerned about important matters. Trivial concerns fall away for a day. The tabloids will have a slow day.
On a geopolitical level, this aspect brings about more mature behavior. Tradition and respect play an important role in discourse. People are more controlling of their personal environment, their thought processes and what they say. A strong desire to do something good for society. The combination of Saturn and Sagittarius are concerned with society, social order, social causes, social institutions, etc. The trine from Mercury means everyone wants to see society get better today. Everyone is looking for ways to improve not only their own life, but society in general. Because of this, it is not individualistic or rebellious. Change is only promoted if it fits in with common wisdom. Lots of creative ideas can come about. A good day to sign up for college, or join some professional organization.
TUESDAY 7/19 Emotional Tuesday. Full Moon
1:39am – Moon (Capricorn) trine Jupiter (Virgo) Pleasant dreams.
10:06am – Moon (Capricorn) square Uranus (Aires) Break from stagnant energies. Intelligent and insightful, this aspect gives us the means necessary to avoid people and situations that keep us from evolving.
12:12pm – Moon (Capricorn) sextile Mars (Scorpio) Lots of energy to push your way into a better situation. Good for a work-out.
3:56pm – Moon (Capricorn) opposition Sun (Cancer) Full Moon at 27d40. This month we have a particularly tough full moon with the Moon in its’ fallen sign. Disappointment is hard to avoid. Emotional satisfaction is not in the stars tonight though that may be on everyone’s mind. This critical moment that we reach each month is like a barometer to see is life is satisfying you. Inhibitions seems like they weigh a ton if you have no healthy way of moving forward. Void of Course begins.
8:10pm – Moon enters Aquarius. Everyone loves freedom and operates from a more enlightened perspective for the next couple of days. Good time to discuss topics of social importance. Matters that concern us all are felt more deeply. Intellect is more important than emotions during this time. One of the reasons why the people of the USA love their cars and don’t like public transportation is Moon in Aquarius.
WEDNESDAY 7/20 Conservative Wednesday.
6:20am – Venus (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius) A time of sobriety and mature handling of your affairs. Opportunities for advancement present themselves if you take advantage of it. Morality and tradition are more important today. People are more cordial and less likely to be crass or unkempt, more likely to use better judgment. People are conservative with one another, speak properly and are not prone to making unrealistic demands. A good day to make a presentation or speech as Venus in Leo likes get on stage and Saturn will help stay focused and get the attention of authority figures. Relationships are more realistic today as you both understand the limitations and are content to live within them for the chance to growth together. Venus is amorous in Leo and the trine in fire signs means that the inspiration for new relationships is in the air. A good day to find love, long-lasting relationships start under this influence.
2:34pm – Moon (Aquarius) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) A wonderful addition to the Venus aspect. People are not emotional, rather they are intellectual and have a broad perspective. Good for any mental work and group activities.
3:26pm – Moon (Aquarius) opposition Venus (Leo) Much the opposite of the previous. A disconnect between emotions and feelings that stifles conversation. Easy to get lost in a crowd and not good for social gatherings.
8:58pm – Moon (Aquarius) opposition Mercury (Leo) Can be confusing as the mind jumps between conscious direction and subconscious impulses. Fixed activities will help overcome the negative, which is arrogance and a dismissive attitude.
THURSDAY 7/21 Intellectual Thursday.
3:54pm – Moon (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aires) Very intellectual and confident, able to move and think freely without inhibitions.
6:56pm – Moon (Aquarius) square Mars (Scorpio) Tendency is to want to hide something from others. People are stinging and inquisitive, wanting to know privileged details about other people’s lives. Can cause unease and disagreements. Best to avoid arguments. Void of Course begins.
FRIDAY 7/22 Dreamy Friday.
1:35am – Moon enters Pisces. Pleasant dreams.
2:30am – Sun enters Leo. Sun begins a new cycle. Time for everyone to shine. It’s sort of like everyone is having a birthday today. We are inclined to act a bit more regal and want others to shine as well. On a personal level interpret this day as something like Sun conjunct Ascendant, start of a new cycle. Life is a stage and everyone gets a chance to play their role.
However, note with Moon in Pisces and Sun in Leo, people are going to be a bit spaced out and into themselves, more into their personal drama.
7:17pm – Moon (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Crisis of limited perspective to perceive the needs of others. May prefer to be alone for a while.
9:54pm – Moon conjunct Neptune (Pisces) at 11d41′. Once again as my viewers are now familiar, the monthly Moon conjunct Neptune is a special occasion to feel really connected. A cosmic poke in your belly button.
Overall a good weekend with only pleasant Moon aspects. Good for quality personal time, especially around the home.
5:08am – Moon (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) An energetic aspect to start the morning, great for a morning workout or ride. Open to psychic impressions.
1:25pm – Moon (Pisces) opposition Jupiter (Virgo). Another heart leaps out of your chest aspect for the Moon. No limits to emotions. Deep understanding of others and their needs. Very sensitive. Very emotional, and possibly dramatic.
12:06am – Moon (Pisces) trine Mars (Scorpio). Let’s dance. This aspect is sure to get people on the dance floor. Emotional energy is amplified and people feel their away to love. Void of Course begins.
5:33am – Moon enters Aires. Good time to attend to projects around the home. Moon in Aires is good at building security (10th/Capricorn step). People are motivated and have lots of energy the next couple of days.
9:17am – Moon (Aires) trine Sun (Leo) Very good for creative projects, really goes well with the Moon in Aires. Good for social gatherings.
10:46pm – Moon (Aires) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Like the Venus trine Saturn earlier in the week, people are not crass or rude. Good for social and/or professional gatherings.
US Presidential Conventions
This weekend we have the Republican Convention in Cleveland. Donald Trump is already the winner. Check his transits, Saturn trine Pluto exactly. Certainly a time of career advancement for him. This is great transit for him. This moment begins his final push for the Presidency and this transit stays in effect for the duration of his campaign. Saturn is slow and steady and Pluto gives it that relentless and audacious quality. One always achieves great accomplishments with this transit. Very good for him.
The new VP candidate with Trump. Here’s his chart. Really interesting transits as the time he was chosen. Notice we were have Uranus quincunx Mars aspect on that day and it was right on top of his Jupiter. Also notice, that his Moon at 23d Gemini quincunx Jupiter, making a Yod formation. We’ve been tracking this Yod formation with Uranus, Mars and other planets, like Mercury and seen how it’s been producing tangible results. The quincunx often does that. The need to make a precise adjustment often manifests as a definite decision, one that had to be made and now is the time. Notice he has a natal Saturn trine Pluto, the same transit that Donald is having this week.
His transits during the campaign. Uranus quincunx Jupiter as mentioned, but more importantly Uranus sextile Mercury and Moon in Gemini. Excellent for communication and adept political maneuvering. But really interesting is the Pluto quincunx Sun. A quincunx sometimes manifests like a square, a limitation, and other times it acts like a trine, which seems to be the case here. The transpersonal quality of the quincunx is such that forces beyond yourself act as the agent of change. Saturn opposition Sun (last pass on 9/17). This one could slow him down, especially if this is during a debate. Jupiter square Mercury happening this coming week will help him a lot to expand his voice. Jupiter sextile Jupiter, also Jupiter sextile Venus and Mars in August. Very good. Jupiter trine Saturn first week of October. Excellent. My take is that he has the transits to win.
For the USA the big news is Uranus going Stationary Retrograde on a square USA’s natal Mercury. This is strongly in effect during both Conventions. The challenge is a crisis to incorporate the will of the people (Uranus) into the political process (Mercury), our home and culture (Cancer) and in a way that reflects our personal values (2nd house).
Uranus square Mercury has manifested as vote rigging across the country (even Vladmir Putin says so) and the legal challenges to those primaries are still in the courts. The issue of inclusion in the political process has reached a crisis level and the people of America are now more aware of it. Watching this on TV, people will demand change now more than ever. There is no doubt that changes will come about because of this transit due to the fact that it is spending so much time on the exact square.
Uranus square a 2nd house planet, the issue of using and sharing personal resources for the common good has also reached a crisis level.
Uranus square a planet in Cancer, the issue of home and security dominate our concerns. This transit breaks up the stagnant energy holding back the culture. The nation seeks new ways of adapting in order to solve the housing crisis and home security.
In the end, the transit is going to make us much smarter politically. Many illusions are being case aside as we sense a crisis to manifest our evolved self into the politics of the day.
In fact, Donald Trump’s candidacy has gotten a lot of traction from this transit. Donald is a very Uranian character for the USA. He expresses the freedom and prosperity that most Americans aspire to. His traditional (10th house) Uranus conjuncts his Sun at the top of his chart. And this conjunction sits on the USA’s Ascendant, Uranus and Mars. This need for America to express its Uranian qualities and incorporate those qualities into the political process is being fulfilled through Trump’s candidacy, through his rhetoric, his candor, his lifestyle. All of which reflect America’s love of material things as a means to demonstrate their evolved qualities. America has this attitude of seeing their prosperity as God’s blessing. This comes from the Neptune square Mars. Ultimately, Donald Trump will be the catalyst for America to address this issue.
And speaking of America’s Neptune. We are soon to arrive at a moment of national healing. Jupiter conjunct Neptune on August 3rd (last pass). This transit creates a great expansion of the heart. Induces compassion and understanding accompanied by a moment of reconciliation where you expand enough to understand someone you’d previously disregarded, swept under the rug, and in light of greater awareness, you now you feel empathy where you once felt disappointment. Particularly so because it’s the 4th house.
Both Hillary Clinton and Dick Cheney have their Moon at 22d Pisces, so they both get Jupiter opposition Moon at this time. It will be interesting to see how these two people will be involved in this moment of national healing coming the first week of August.
The Texas governor has recently called for a convention of the states. This is a valid concern because honestly no president in history has circumvented the Constitution more than Obama. So looking at the birth chart of Texas we can see why they are so tough. Sun conjunct Mercury square Mars conjunct Uranus. Also the Pluto square Moon is very obvious with them. I have the time set for 12 noon and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they really do have Pluto on the Ascendant. Lots of reasons.
Notice Uranus is currently conjunct their Pluto and likely Pluto conjunct Moon in the near future. My guess is that Texas will soon ramp up talk about seceding from the Union. It’s been a favorite topic of their ever since they were born, and now they are building a serious legal challenge to Federal authority.

Nice, France Attack on 7/14
I just want to start of by saying that I need to kick myself for not jumping on this more like my intuition guided me to do. Although, as my viewers are aware, I have been mentioning this Uranus quincunx Mars aspect (6/19) and I noted that an attack happened here in Sacramento when Mercury was in position to form a Yod on 6/26. So I have been forming the connection between the Uranus quincunx Mars and the tendency for violence to manifest. Here we see a confirmation of that observation. The Uranus quincunx Mars occurred with Mars conjunct Saturn and Uranus quincunx Saturn. Clearly we now have a clear connection. Astrological wisdom has shown us once again what we should be looking for. Now let us consider why. In my report for the week of June 19-26, when we last saw this aspect happening when Mars was retrograde. I wrote:
So we can see that now on the forward motion, Mars quincunx Uranus produced violence once again. I would very much like to figure out how I can get this information included into the database of collective wisdom for astrology and humanity as a whole. This is an important observation that is scientific in nature, not magic. We now see a direct connection and we need to learn from this. And it is so clear to see.
Looking at the Event chart for the Nice attack, we see that the Moon was right on top of Mars thereby activating the quincunx to Uranus. Honestly, there can be no doubt at this point at to what manifested this violent act.
Essentially what happens during this aspect is people feel they need to make a precise adjustment in order to validate their existence.
For me personally, this has been an amazing discovery that I did reveal somewhat, but could have done more. It’s a great learning lesson for me to believe in myself, so I guess I have gotten that lesson as well.
That’s it this week. Once again, thanks for watching and please leave comments.
Mars quincunx Uranus
With two recent violent events happening in the world, the Nice attack in France and now the attempted coup in Turkey, it seems like we need to take a more careful look at this.
This aspect, Mars quincunx Uranus, is the culprit in both of these events.
In the birth chart of the attacker in Nice, France, the Mars quincunx Uranus aspect forms transits to Saturn.
In the case of Turkey, we see aspects to their natal Jupiter.
This aspect seems to be carrying a lot more power because Uranus is in the sign of Aires, ruled by Mars. This aspect produces an intense impulse to prove your worth to others. But because it is Mars to Aires, it is also creating this incredible self-destructive energy. The violent ability in Mars/Aires is set free (Uranus) in a compulsive manner (quincunx). The quincunx itself also carries with it violent tendencies because the quincunx is associated with Virgo/Scorpio and Scorpio likes to get revenge, can be ruthless and totally committed. Uranus which thinks it knows everything, tends to marginalize emotions and therefore also has a ruthless side. Put it all together and we get a person with a ruthless, vindictive, self-destructive streak ready to prove to the world who they are. Of course, that is the most negative manifestation.
On the positive side, if used properly, the aspect gives intense drive and originality, and can bring about much needed change in your life. It can help you make the precise adjustment necessary to set yourself free, release the potential of your higher self and get your ego in line to accomplish your goals.
Uranus is concerned with what it good for society as a whole, and Mars is your ego. With this aspect we sense a need to realign or adjust the ego in order to do all that you can to help society. But with that comes a burden to take action as you feel overwhelmed by the problems in society. For some, it’s easy to fall into getting involved with some movement where you feel like you are being used by others and asked to do more than your fair share. I think that fits the description of a few major social movements going on at this time.
But because of this Mars to Aires element in the aspect, we have seen all of this self-destructive behavior. We see the backlash against the police happening this week with several police murdered. This happened in Texas and a couple other places. This is the sort of thing I mean, this self-destructive behavior coupled within a desire to change society for the better. These shooting in Texas and elsewhere are another manifestation of this aspect.
This is a great lesson for all of us. As mentioned earlier, this aspect has been a good learning lesson for me as I am now even more encouraged to follow my instinct as well as learning more about astrology. Last December I put out a video entitled “Uranus opposition Mars, The Day the Earth Won’t Stand Still”, thinking these kind of event would transpire, only now I have learned that the quincunx seems to produce far more significant events.
