A fantastic set of aspects today. Mars sextile Jupiter and Sun trine Uranus bring confidence and positive change. A day to get out of the house and do something special.
9:42am – Mars (Leo) sextile Jupiter (Libra) The first of two excellent aspects today. Mars is shinning bright these days in Leo where is asks us to create and express ourselves without shyness, very outgoing. The sextile to Jupiter in Libra brings confidence, optimism, good luck and positive energy to that. The result is one of the best combinations in the book. Folks are in a very positive mood, no one is bummed out today. Excellent time for recreation (Leo). A perfect day to learn a new sport that you’ve been wanting to try, like maybe water skiing.
This aspect is also good for settling legal disputes. Both sides want to settle is a morally upright (Jupiter) manner.
Aspect is good for business. People are active and interested in buying and selling. Everyone wants to get the best deal for themselves so they can shine as bright as possible. So it’s a good day to make a big purchase.
I strongly recommend getting out of the house today, expanding your horizons as much as possible to try and get as many opportunities as you can.
8:32pm – Moon (Leo) sextile Jupiter (Libra) Good time for romance and recreation (Leo). Positive attitudes in abundance.
8:55pm – Moon conjunct Mars (Leo) A high energy aspect, good time for a party. Folks are aggressive and courageous and need to be noticed. No one is shy on the dance floor tonight.
10:26pm – Moon (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius) Feeling masterful, realistically (Saturn) optimistic (Sagittarius) about your chances for success, willing to wait for just the right moment.
11:23pm – Sun (Leo) trine Uranus (Aires) Today is the day to try something new (Uranus) bring some change (Uranus) into your life. You could meet someone new who enlightens you, brings some excitement into your life. Another aspect that encourages us to get out of the house and do something different, interesting, interact with people in a way that you haven’t done before. Today the universe is asking you to find the unique side of yourself and explore that for the day.
The Sun is our creative will which sits at the core of who we are. Uranus rules our process of evolution. So today we are looking for creative ways to evolve.
This aspect is very bright and full of light, no darkness whatsoever. Both Leo and Aquarius always bring things into the light, everything is done out in the open where everyone can see clearly. So nothing dark within you can withstand all of this light. You can use this light to overcome any darkness within yourself, use it to come to terms with and overcome dark parts of yourself that hold you back. No fear of phobia is too strong today. This aspect brings a whole new way of seeing things. No one is pessimistic today, very open minded.
Uranus is a transpersonal planet, one of the outer planets. In these cases we always look to see if someone else helps manifest the energy for you. A new person could come into your life and be the catalyst for the new perspective this aspect brings. For this reason it is advisable to put yourself in a place where you are open to someone new and interesting. They aren’t going to knock on your front door.
And since Uranus is about freedom and liberty, today people are feeling very free and willing to offer the same to others. We see the intrinsic value in the freedom of others so we want them to be as free as we are. Aspect is good for teaching and sharing new information. We have more interest in science and astrology and basically the best aspect to learn something new.
The Solar Eclipse that everyone has been anticipating. It’s the biggest astrological event of the year and it will have everyone looking towards the sky. It’s an exciting and creative day and the start of a new Sun-Moon cycle.
10:39am – Moon (Leo) trine Uranus (Aires) Ambitious and looking for a change.
11:30am – Moon conjunct Sun (28d53′ Leo). New Moon and Solar Eclipse. The biggest astrological event of the year and there has been so much doom and gloom and religious fanaticism spoken about it that it’s no wonder so many folks are turned off to astrology or why insanity if often referred to as lunacy.
Over the last two weeks I mentioned this and have already given lots of detail, so if you haven’t already please check out my reports for August 6-13 and August 13-20 for more info on that. The main point I want to emphasize about this event is that this month is a time a not hiding your head in the sand, now is the time to stand tall and shine in the world. Let your true, genuine self find creative expression in all that you do. The emphasis now is on personal expression of who you are as a spirit.
Despite the fact that it is an eclipse which makes it dark during the day, this aspect has nothing but light in it, no darkness whatsoever. So absolutely avoid anything dark or underhanded as it will hurt you now a lot more than usual. Leo is the King, so you must act like it. Be a good King, or Queen, one who enlightens and inspires others, not one who rules with an iron fist.
Void of Course begins.
1:25pm – Moon enters Virgo.
A good day for hard work, attention to detail and finishing the job that your start with Mars trine Saturn.
2:41am – Moon conjunct Mercury (Virgo) Middle of the night.
6:20am – Mars (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius) Today we focus our energy are things that are meant to last a long time. Good day to buy practical things, stuff that you genuinely need. The ego (Mars) is more mature today as we seek to incorporate something of lasting value into our lives. People are more agreeable, less likely to exhibit defiance or overt aggressive behavior. Relations with superiors and authority figures are better today. Good time to reach an agreement as egos are working towards practical goals.
Patience and persistence are the virtues that we exhibit today. A good time for exacting work that requires attention to detail. Good day to work on projects that require patience and skill. Saturn causes the energy of Mars to be released in a slow steady stream that enables you to work until a task is completed and not worry about immediate personal gratification along the way. You need less oversight and fewer breaks.
This and the other Mars aspect we are having this week really add a wonderful boost of energy to the Jupiter sextile Saturn aspect on Sunday. Instead of the Jupiter sextile Saturn aspect passing without many noticing it, this time it will be really obvious. Mars brings enthusiasm to the otherwise mundane task of planning for a better future, which is something that is not very exciting due to the willingness to put off present comfort for future gain. But Mars is our desire nature and this will really encourage people to do it this time instead of just letting the sextile pass without notice.
A very good day to start a business venture, make plans for the future, make an agreement or build something meant to last, like construction projects.
12:17pm – Moon (Virgo) opposition Neptune (Pisces) Emotions expand to help others, but you can be easily fooled when you let go unconditionally. Aspect teaches us about unconditional love.
3:21pm – Sun enters Virgo. The keyword with Virgo is helpfulness. Virgo is concerned with digestion, likes to process things. Virgo can be religious in the way they observe proper procedure. Virgo needs to make precise adjustments to prepare us for the meeting in Libra. Virgo is also concerned with hygiene, not just in a mundane sense but a spiritual sense as well.
7:12pm – Moon (Virgo) trine Pluto (Capricorn) Very helpful for others, able to make a change for the better in your life and others.
A mellow day with one pleasant Moon aspect in the afternoon and the Moon enters Libra in the evening.
2:18am – Moon (Virgo) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Middle of the night.
1:02pm – Moon (Virgo) sextile Venus (Cancer) Feelings and emotions in balance. Good time to declare your love for someone. Void of Course begins.
6:05pm – Moon enters Libra. We are more in need of companionship for the next couple of days. Libra rules the not-self so we really need attention from others with Moon in Libra. Good time for relationships and romance. We are more tolerant and easy going towards others. Good for social gatherings.
Looking for a change, a bit of excitement and maybe even a challenge today with Venus square Uranus.
12:00pm – Venus (Cancer) square Uranus (Aires) Our one challenging aspect this week. The first square in the Venus-Uranus cycle that began June 3rd at 27d Aires. This cycle is all about incorporating change, progressive ideals, social awareness (Uranus) into the way you relate to your partner and the rest of the world in general. At the start of the Venus-Uranus cycle, we feel an strange attraction to the unusual, something new and interesting. Now at the square we sense a crisis to show we have done that. We seek more excitement and new experiences even if it’s just change for the sake of change.
This aspect could prove disruptive if you try to outsmart (Uranus) everyone and it just provokes an argument. Aspect is hard on existing relationships and new relationships that start under the aspect are not meant to last long.
On the good side, all Uranus squares give us courage and intelligence which we use to separate ourselves from others in order to have the freedom to evolve in our own way and in our own time. So everyone is a bit smarter today and looking to stand apart from others and be unique. If used properly, it can give you the ability to sever emotional bonds and help you break out of a stagnant situation, like a relationship, that is draining your energy.
One the bad side, you may just desire to have an argument and that could ruin an otherwise harmonious relationship or partnership. Recall that Uranus is now retrograde and you must seek to change yourself first before trying to change the world around you. This could make it a frustrating day for some. If you are not as unique and interesting or modern as you need to be, then you will feel frustrated today and may even provoke a fight.
Moon (Libra) give us some nice aspects today, a good day for business and partnerships. Saturn goes Stationary Direct and Venus enters Leo today.
1:32am – Moon (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) Middle of the night.
5:09am – Saturn goes Stationary Direct at 21d11′ Sagittarius. This is an important event. During the retrograde period, since April 6 when Saturn was at 27d47′ Sagittarius, Saturn asked us to do more work restructuring our lives. So whatever planets or aspects to planets you’re getting at those degrees, there you are doing a lot of restructuring, coming to terms with things that are ending and seeing how you can cope in the future. We all have experience failure to some degree during this time, along with disappointment because we all have attachments to structures and traditions that we need to survive. At this time you should be thinking of new ways of surviving, new beliefs that will help you better in the future. Now is the time to start expressing those new beliefs, this will help you and help society by allow the new structure to emerge once Saturn enters Capricorn in late December.
Saturn emerges from the shadow degrees on December 1, until then it will be revisiting the degrees it was at before the retrograde. A couple of degrees at the end of Sagittarius get just one pass. For them, death is sudden and quick. Enjoy the end of Saturn’s death cycle.
If you have felt held back, like you needed to restructure yourself first, then this will be a relief as you are now ready to move forward with your plans.
8:31am – Moon conjunct Jupiter (Libra) Emotions expand, feeling idealistic, good time to be in a crowd. Good for business.
9:08am – Moon (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) Emotions calm and feeling productive. Good time for business.
1:05pm – Moon (Libra) sextile Mars (Leo) Vitality increases, good time for physical exercise. Emotions balanced and secure. Good time for business again today.
9:30pm – Venus enters Leo. Until 9/20, exactly 4 weeks. Venus in Leo is romantic, creative, theatrical and proud. They are also self-conscious of their looks, likes the dress up and be on stage. Venus in Leo has big hair. Time to be more colorful and fashionable. Not at all shy about romantic interests and more interested in art and any artistic hobby.
10:39pm – Moon (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) Restless energy and disruptions late in the evening. Void of Course begins.
Sun conjunct Mercury makes it a good day for communication and all business related matters.
1:53am – Moon enters Scorpio. Time of regenerate over the next couple of days. We have more energy to repair and reform the home environment.
2:21am – Moon (Scorpio) square Venus (Leo) Middle of the night.
8:49am – Moon (Scorpio) sextile Sun (Virgo) Creative energy flows in precise (Virgo) and passionate (Scorpio) ways. Lots of helpful (Virgo), healing (Scorpio) energy.
1:43pm – Sun conjunct Mercury(Virgo) Last occurred March 6 in Pisces. This aspect is always a good one. It brings the light of the Sun into the conscious mind. We are more talkative, intelligent, opinionated, and curious. Our creative energy is very active and changeable, we can move easily from one thing to the next without much hesitation. Able to do two things at once. Good for juggling.
In Virgo, today we are punctual, precise and helpful, looking to make the precise adjustments necessary for success. This requires skillful (Virgo) use of your time and energy, avoiding things that distract you from you path and helping others along the way.
We feel lots of creative energy today and need to express unconditional acceptance. This aspect makes for lots of business transactions. It should be a good day for business. This could be a very creative and productive day, especially if you can stay focused.
Jupiter sextile Saturn arrives, time for planning your life and any business related matter.
3:17am – Moon (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces). Healing/regenerative energy (Scorpio) helps to reclaim (Pisces) lost elements of self.
5:16am – Jupiter (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) I first mentioned this aspect from my report for Nov 27-Dec 4, 2016 because it was within orb for more than a month. Now it is finally happening, so I have been waiting for this.
At this time, we have an opportunity (sextile) to put the best part of ourselves forward in everything we do. To behave, if we want, in a manner which is very balanced and socially acceptable. This is a rather opportunistic moment we now find ourselves in.
This aspect is great for leadership and taking charge of your life. Jupiter and Saturn together are the kingmakers. When they are in harmony it denotes good leadership and ability to maximize your available resources. Jupiter loosens Saturn up a bit so authority structures can expand and Saturn sobers Jupiter up a bit so idealism is tempered. It’s a win-win situation, you can correct yourself, it makes for balanced growth with better judgment.
What makes transit so interesting is that Saturn is in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s ruling sign, so this puts a double-dose of Sagittarius energy on Saturn. Sagittarius dissolves Saturn energy. This means that this aspect is meant to help you release and resolve all that you need to while Saturn is in the final degrees of Sagittarius. For those of us who have done the work on ourselves and are ready for the next step will get a break, we get an opportunity to rise above the desperate energy about to be unleashed and, if you seize the opportunity this aspect brings, you’ll be able to sail through the next few months with much greater ease and much less disappointment.
So despite this being a sextile, there is a lot of letting go of the past that needs to be done now to prevent disaster in the near future.
11:08am – Moon (Scorpio) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Strong burst about noon. This one will really help establish a new base emotional state. Very constructive if you utilize (Capricorn) the energy. That’s a lot of Scorpio energy on the Moon. Very transformative.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
On 8/13, Uranus square Pluto coincided with the recent events in Charlottesville. This transit brings on a revolutionary spirit, a desire to cause chaos and destruction, and we can see there is a lot of talk of revolution, some of which amounts to treason. The purpose of this transit is to make a break from the past and dissolve old structures that are no longer useful. Of course with Uranus now retrograde, the change needs to come from within first, so these external expressions of revolution are self-defeating.
That is the main effect of this transit are the economic problems, also a square to the 8th house.
But the other effect of this transit is to bring racism to the surface because of Pluto in Capricorn. Americans will all have a better idea about how we feel on the issue of race once this transit has passed. Looking at the immigration issue and the rhetoric coming from the left, it seems like there is a concerted effort to wipe out white culture. Actually it’s a world wide effort to destroy all cultures and institute a one-world government. If all the different and opposing groups would stop and think for a moment they’d realize the root cause of the problem and work together. There is a much deeper issue of history which has not been included in the history books. So we all need to go beyond what they teach in schools and research the issue further if you really want to be informed.
So the issue of race and inequality in the distribution of resources will continue to chip away at the political system and be an ongoing theme in the news until next spring at the last pass. What we see now is that the solidification of the issue, which typically happens at the second pass and is resolved by the third pass. The last pass is 4/19/18 and it comes close again in January 2019 at 28d36′. Considering we saw this flash point at the exact time of the transit, we can expect something along those same lines next April.
So this is the event that has awoken many people to one of the issues surrounding Uranus square Pluto, but no nearly all of it. But you will notice the narrative is absent any real deep consideration or reflection on the issue. It is very superficial and of course the hands of people like George Soros are all over this event. So despite this being a huge story, it is basically just more mass distraction. The real issue is the economic problems, especially with the states, and this event in Charlottesville only distracts people from the real issues.
But for those of us looking to make a positive change in this nation this is a wonderful opportunity. America desperately needs the spirit of evolution, not revolution, to emerge and become a force to reckon with, and that too will happen with this transit. It really depends on each of us individually to make that commitment (Pluto).
8/21 – Solar Eclipse across North America. I have been discussing this for the last few weeks. One thing I must add. A correction from last week’s report when I stated that the Solar Eclipse occurring so close to Donald Trump’s Ascendant would be bad news for him if it were to be exact. I was mistaken and got confused between interpretations of the New Moon and Full Moon. Actually, this is a good placement for Trump and further indication that it’s good news for the USA.
8/25 – Saturn goes Stationary Direct. Continues direct until 4/18/18 at 9d Capricorn.
This is the end of the Saturn cycle, the last forward motion period in Sagittarius and in the current 29 year cycle that began with Capricorn. So there is a huge push forward during this time to complete whatever needs to be completed before the next cycle and to let go of whatever needs to pass away at this time. Those who cannot let go of the past get desperate to save their dissolving reality. Try your best to let go of all of the old structures in your life that are ready to fall away, despite any nostalgia you may feel about the old ways.
Our ability to get a grip on life has been very difficult these past 2 ½ years during Saturn in Sagittarius. For many of us, our energy has dissipated into political, philosophical and religious idealism and this has drained vital life force energy from everyone. Everyone feels disappointment on some level as we have tried in vain to maintain a structure that is no longer valid. It has been difficult move on and grow into anything new because new structures for security and authority in society won’t be established until Saturn enters Capricorn in December.
At this time, you should look back over the past couple of years and review how your perspective has changed, how you have gotten more realistic about all things related to Sagittarius, like religion, politics, news organizations, higher education and professional sports, and realized the limitations of your thinking, and hopefully made the necessary changes overcome your limited beliefs. Otherwise you will not be prepared for the next cycle. The dysfunctional elements within yourself and within society that you remain wedded to will prevent you from moving forward and you could face an intense feeling of disappointment as they fall away.
Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius will bring the fall of the Tower of Babel, a term which characterizes the mainstream media during this period. These are there final days before a new authority structure emerges which they must contend with. If they can’t admit that they were wrong on many issues then they face irrelevancy. We should see some amazing falls from grace during this time, political leaders and media personalities alike.
The concurrent aspects for this Direct Motion period are nothing short of fantastic. Just look at Saturn, it’s part of a kite formation, trine to Uranus, trine to Mars and sextile to Jupiter and Moon. This is very good for authority figures and recall Donald Trump’s Moon is getting an exact conjunction from Saturn now.
The trine to Mars means that projects started now withstand the test of time.
The trine to Uranus means that you have an opportunity to achieve your highest potential.
Sextile to Moon means you have the emotional strength to overcome insecurities.
Sextile to Jupiter, the best of all because it’s the closest to exact means now is the time of planning for your future, taking stock of what you have and maximizing use of available resources.
And the upcoming Jupiter opposition Uranus is in this chart. That’s is the aspect, coming 9/27, that will bring enormous changes in the world, including the introduction of new forms of energy to replace gas engines, revelations of ancient alien artifacts in Antarctica as well as fundamental changes (Uranus) in our political, news media and anything related to Jupiter.
In summary, we’re living during a very exciting time and I am so happy to be able to share this with you all. Despite all the warnings of doom and gloom from some, this is really a wonderful moment in time for all of us, especially here in the USA and my prayer for everyone is that you turn towards God, the source of higher wisdom within you appreciate the synchronicity you share with everyone around you and let your lights shine bright so you can get the most out of it.
