yes, i do kiss my mom with this mouth!!—mars/mercury/pluto—april 21st – 22nd

Well, yesterday Taurus Mars trined Capricorn Pluto Rx, while today Mercury moves in to conjunct Mars and also trine Pluto. All in Earth.

Edward-Poynter-Knuckle-BonesIn the most mundane sense, what this means is cussing up a storm! It’s all tits & ass and cock & balls!! Raunchy sex jokes and off color accolades galore!

But surprisingly, no one is going to be over-sensitive to it. All the filth and smut will land precisely where it is intended—to cut the edge off a seriously stressful situation, take the bite out of a ridiculously loooonnnnggg day, to brilliantly correct a social power imbalance.

We’ll ALL get the joke and no one will be hurt. Win-win-WIN!

For the next 24 hours, we’ll get away with this misbehavior because there is an honesty to Mars/Mercury/Pluto that bleeds through without fail. We are being silly with Earth energy. Earth rules our bodies and it is in this element we can be truthful about all the nasty we turn from every other day. We actually can appreciate how raw and primal each and every one of us is.

And to add to the merriment, sweet Gemini Venus and Leo Jupiter also sextile at 12°, today. (Forming a wide Finger of God with the Lord of Filth himself, the aforementioned Pluto!) These two are known as the benefics. They are LUCKY and as a result, so are we!!

Enjoy it while it lasts, ya’ll. We’ll go back to our hyper-offended, stick-in-the-mud, our-bodies-are-dirty-and-shameful mentality soon enough.

weekend augury—giving or getting?—april 17th – 19th

Alright.

crane-walter-the-horses-of-neptune.-mythological-fine-art-print-poster.-sizes-a4-a3-a2-a1-00237-9904-pLate last night, Capricorn Pluto began retrograde motion at 15°, while today sees a fixed square between Taurus Mars and Leo Jupiter.

If things have been going to your liking as of late, all this is gonna solidify the will to keep on keepin’ on. But if you’ve been frustrated with your daily energy levels and general productivity, suffering one roadblock after another—this is gonna make you want to beat your head against the pavement.

The waning Moon is currently moving through the initial degrees of Cardinal Aries soon to conjunct Uranus and square Pluto—further intensifying the above.

If it’s good, it’s gonna be real good. Hell, yeah!!!   If it’s bad—I am truly sorry.

But hold tight—there’s hope!

Saturday, at around 3PM EST, Luna will meet up with Sol for the Aries New Moon at 28°. I’ll dig deeper into this in a later post.

Let’s just say, if you are in the kickin’ ass group, this Fire lunation will continue to fuel the way. But if you are on the ass kicked end—a blessed new beginning is certainly possible.

Regardless, on Sunday, as the Moon slips into her Taurus comfort zone, Gemini Venus squares, and Taurus Mercury sextiles, Pisces Neptune.

I always like to see the God of the Illusion engaged on a Sunday. No matter what your work schedule looks like, I find Sunday’s to be the one day EVERYONE can use a break and dear Neptune certainly can deliver.

There will be a lazy haze shrouding the day.

Like a cool breeze (Gemini) drifting (Mutable) across a tranquil lake (Pisces) intent on whispering (Mercury) sweet nothings (Neptune) lovingly (Venus) to the statuesque pines (Taurus) ashore.

week ahead—buoyant recovery after the eclipse—april 6th – 9th

Ok, for our lovely Spring week ahead there is quite a bit of Jupterian activity to help us bounce back from the intense Eclipse/Full Moon over the past weekend.

edward-burne-jones-45-the-pilgrim-at-the-gate-of-idlenessThe waning Moon is now sailing through Scorpio, zinging Neptune and Pluto, and will end up in Sagittarius by week’s end—paying visit to Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus. Intensity of emotion and looming questions of ‘why?’ spice the atmosphere all week.

Pisces Chiron has moved out of tight sextile with Capricorn Pluto leaving us to experience the full strength of the Uranus/Pluto square at 15°/16°.  This points to an edgier demonstration of the revolution/evolution bite of the two. Sadly, gentle compassion during this tumultuous time will be harder to access.

The Aries Sun and Mercury exact their conjunctions with Uranus during the week, while Taurus Mars inconjuncts Sagittarius Saturn Rx in their first I/O/Q meeting. There are brilliantly brave ideas burning their way into reality nowadays and, if recognized, then given the proper structure, can take hold into something riotously vital.

Our minds not only get electrified by the genius of Uranus, but also smash into Pluto, God of the Underworld. The trick is to guard against unfounded suspicion and cynicism. These will only get in the way.

Instead, demand to see the positive in the most dire of situations, which will be aided my Mercury trining Leo Jupiter Rx for the King of Planet’s last interaction with a celestial body (other than the Moon) before turning direct on Wednesday. He revisits 12° – 22°—if you have points or planets here you get an extra boost to the joy and good fortune!!

The multitude of Spring Aries Fire combined with Jupiter’s about face signals a collective shift from contently navel gazing to a more pronounced need to interact with the outside world—conquer and leave your mark!

Ample, encouraging energy is available to bolster the work of Venus and Mars in Fixed Earth, while they labor to shore up the projects of Cardinal Fire.

Again, the Universe provides the building blocks for success.

me or we?—libra’s total lunar eclipse—april 4th

In less than 12 hours we have the Libra/Aries Full Moon at 14º.

the-platonic-lament-1894-Not only is it a Full Moon but, in answer to the Equinox/New Moon two weeks ago, also the day of an Eclipse—a Total Lunar this time ’round—rare and bloody.

And on an even larger scale, tomorrow’s lunation speaks to events we were managing this time last Spring and Fall—full circle and/or full steam ahead.

There are many factors in play with this one, most notably: Sun conjunct Uranus, Mercury conjunct South Node, Jupiter trine Sun and last but not least, Sun & Moon square Pluto—t-square!

If you are the possessor of planets or points between 10º-17º of the Cardinal signs (and the Fire or Fixed signs, too) then this could potentially be a big event for you, with 14º-15º Cancer a dumping ground for a majority of the energies here—yikes, if you are the lucky one!

For the collective—lots of Fire, tons of Cardinal. Passion and initiative.

Those intentions set during the middle of March are coming to a head or gaining momentum depending on the necessary timeframe.

This Full Moon is on the Aries/Libra axis and is an Eclipse, therefore the Moon’s Nodes are conjunct the event (nodes = our past that greatly affects our future). So, it is very much a dynamic of “space or intimacy”—“mine or yours”—“me or we”—“individuality or co-operation”—or better yet, a lovely balance somewhere in between!

Yes, the past weighs heavily, but Pluto is engaged to force an evolution. Hard, painful, gut wrenching teardown then an Uranian-fueled forward thrust—if one is needed. Maybe it works out the attachment is rock solid and tomorrow’s Eclipse merely fans the fires of pleasure.

Well either way, by Summer’s end, we’ll get to partake these delights for a fourth parlay.

As always, look to the houses brought to the fore for precisely how this manifests personally for you.

Happy Blood Moon, everyone!

march 31st—i am behind, oh well

blake1Monday was a bad day for me.

I wrote the basics here.

So, I’ve missed posting about a few aspects:

  • venus trine pluto
  • sun conjunct south node

Not to be a cryptic asshole, but what went down on the farm over the weekend are perfect examples of what can happen when the sun shines brightly on ideas and plans that simply won’t work, as well as staggering beauty in the grip of death.

As much as I beat my head against the workings of all that is larger than myself, the more I am reminded of the stubborn fool I insist on being. Going with the flow has never been a happy ride for me.

Aries season.

nobody said it was gonna be easy—march 21st thru 24th

Mikalojus_Konstantinas_Ciurlionis_-_CREATION_OF_THE_WORLD_IX_-_1905_-_6_VarsuvaWell, straight off the heals of yesterday’s glide into Spring, today we are faced with a bit of a reality check.

For the weekend into the week, Venus and Mercury will be put through the paces.

Venus is how we relate and bond—what we value. Mercury is our mind and communication style—how we learn. These are the areas of concentration for the next couple.

First, Taurus Venus begins her I/O/Q cycle with Sagittarius SaturnRX today at 4º.  This tense aspect creates a low-level feeling of self-consciousness, possibly about our values (Sagittarius) or even our physical looks and social relationships (Taurus). How we manage money and resources, too, may pop up.

Wherever Taurus is in our chart’s, we want the “good life”. The stable passions of a Fire Saturn can make it so. Fire is uncomfortable for Earth—so an adjustment (inconjunct) of perspective is needed.

race in the u.s.a.—final duel of uranus square pluto—march 16th – 29th

Since last summer, our nation has been overrun with one controversial story of race relations in the US after another—specifically how African Americans are treated by white Americans.

This is just a list off the top of my head. It can go on and on. Terrible and terrifying things.

In my life, I’ve never known a time when ‘race’ wasn’t a volatile subject. But it is obvious to me that in the recent months the conversation has exploded with incidents (or are we just simply listening, now?) and outrage about the brutality and injustice of being black in America.

Out of the shadows, there have been some positives to come from this litany of disgusting abuse—namely, we marked a huge milestone with the 50th anniversary of the Freedom March on March 9th.

And that, dear readers, leads me to the point of my post.
