jan 13th – 15th—worker bees a buzzin’

This week sees an abundance of activity among three of the worker bees—Mercury, Venus and Mars (the Sun and Moon take center stage at next week’s lunation, of course).

Lots to talk about.

First, the good news—

Vintage-Plants-and-Flowers-Clipart-006Yesterday, Venus and Mercury came into exact conjunction at 11º Aquarius.

They remain conjunct today while forming a sextile with Aries Uranus. Tomorrow, the 14th, the pair will semi-sextile Capricorn Pluto and Pisces Chiron while trining the Libran North Node.

When the Messenger God and Aphrodite conjoin, the atmosphere is active and pleasant.  Our mind is working well with our social graces and when in Aquarius—humanitarian idealism meets quirky charm.

Add to this dynamic easy aspects from Uranus (who is the ruler of Aquarius), Pluto, Chiron and the Nodal Axis and well, our collective drive to cajole the best out of humanity is accentuated exponentially.

This duo have the moxie to get it done.

And, boy, are you gonna need it since Piscean Mars exactly squares Saturn in Sagittarius on Thursday.

Folks, this is a tricky one. Here an almost saintly amount of patience and perseverance is required. Though, positively, I feel the overall effect is softened since Pisces and Sadge are Mutable, thus making it easier to adapt.

Regardless, expect general frustration at every turn—trudging through molasses. A lot of B.S. may get piled on your plate all at once. Just don’t let it rile you—that’s the test.

As with most things Saturnine, if you know EXACTLY what you want and are willing to follow the rules PRESICELY in getting it, you’ll be fine.

Otherwise, keep your head down and don’t stop working, because after the square exacts the influence fades rather quickly.

So, there you have it, some of the gifts as well as some of the challenges fueling this week’s heavens.

Yep, remember all the Venusian charm and Mercurial quick wit at your disposal and use it!

december 20th—solstice eve 2014: part 2

So, Mars moved into Aquarius on the 5th. But our dear Warrior has not contacted another planet (except the ever moving Moon) in major aspect since sextiling Saturn from Capricorn on December 1st.

Vintage-Old-Book-Illustration-037Twenty days!! That’s a long time, people.

Well, all of that is about to change and in a radical kinda way!!

This is Part 2 of my series on the build up to this year’s Winter Solstice, that is also the Capricorn New Moon, going down this Sunday, the 21st.

You can catch up with Part 1 right here, where I discussed Mercury, Neptune and Saturn’s status for the weekend.

Ok, so the God of War has been a lone wolf for almost 3 weeks, save an occasional visit from Luna.

On the  20th, all that changes.

december 14th—uranus square pluto—thorn in your side

Well, in the Heavens, as many of you probably already know, a battle is raging between Pluto and Uranus.

Voyager_Uranus_732X520Since 2012, there have been 5 exact squares and today, December 14th, the 6th will occur, with the final going down next Spring.

Pluto has recently gone direct and is interacting with Uranus Rx this time at 12º 35′ Capricorn and Aries, respectively.

When all is said and done, from the 6th degree to the 15th of Cardinal Fire and Earth, a metamorphosis of monumental proportion will have transpired.

For the last few years, nationally and globally, stargazers have been speculating beforehand, then reporting on afterwards, the mundane, explosive, effects of this dynamic.

There has also been quite an analysis of the the past conjunction between these two leviathans back in 1965/1966. And here is an excellent article comparing the waxing/waning cycles of Pluto/Capricorn throughout the last centuries and into this one.

As for the current square, I personally like this take. And here is another. And yet, another.

Yes, yes, much has been said about it all.

But you know what, I feel an important nuance has been overlooked and I would like to highlight it, now.
