following through—sun trine saturn rx—march 25th

Today, the Aries Sun trines SaturnRx in Sagittarius. aries-1907

This is excellent energy to tweak projects started under all the Arian planets of late.  Conserving resources and organization will be relatively painless—all those mundane things that keep the wheels turning. Our sense of responsiblity won’t let the tedious errands go undone despite the Cardinal push to move on to the next thing already!!

Saturn rules reputations and social status. Fire signs are exuberant. The Aries Sun is illuminating our hard work and the patience necessary to see a job well done. Deserved accolades will be given under this influence. Those of us who have taken our obligations seriously will be commended.

It’s all about the follow through—in the day-to-day and with justified praise.

accepting the challenge—mars with jupiter/uranus/pluto—march 9th – 11th

Edward-Robert-Hughes-Painting-018Late last night, Aries Mars trined Leo Jupiter Rx and then, in the wee hours of the morning, he conjuncted Uranus. Tomorrow, the God of War will square Capricorn Pluto.

Venus recently made her way through each of these very aspects leading into last week’s Full Moon and now its her valiant paramour’s turn to do the same.

Very similar vibe but also very different.

For one thing, our physical energy for the next few days will be off the charts! Unless afflicted by something in the natal chart, it will simply seem as if our vigor knows no bounds.  Collectively, we simply want to get out and meet life head on—play as if our souls depended on it!!

Alright, we are actually in the thick of this RIGHT NOW, so on to the particulars.

smokin’ hot—venus with uranus, jupiter and pluto—march 4th

Art-Nouveau-Painting-022Can you feel the amped up energies of late?

And well, today, Venus conjuncts Aries Uranus, trines Leo Jupiter Rx and squares Capricorn Pluto.

Fire!!

This is the sizzling build up for tomorrow’s Full Moon and it’s gonna have us consumed with hot, torrid looovvvveeee for the next couple days!

Love and art; love and money; love and values—the lack or abundance of it, the gutt wrenching possibilities of it, the desirous annihilation of it.

A conjunction, a trine and a square—

To start, Aphrodite under Uranian influence is eye-catching. This is where form meets weird—and we are transfixed. We will be on high alert to those subtle and sometimes not so, ques that magnetize us to others and them to us in return. The more erratic the sentiment, the more it titilates—enough friction to burn.

Venus receiving a trine from Leo Jupiter is a gift. Joy and social charm are exaggerated to a magnificent degree—too much of a good thing in this case is definitely wonderful. We are experiencing the pull of mind-blowing seduction and with the aid of a Fire Jupiter, can express its grandeur fully.

Lastly, Pluto is involved in tense aspect, therefore this gripping attraction may prove to actually be a sleazy revulsion. Or, possibly worse, a foolish obsession.

The God of the Underworld loves hard and craves satisfaction to the core. Things turn on a dime before the inhaled breath is released. The clutches of Pluto could leave the Goddess of Love singed. Or could deepen the allure.

I, for one, am loving these Aries transits.

holy fire balls—march 1st

Alright, four main astrological things go on today.Mikalojus_Konstantinas_Ciurlionis_-_FRIENDSHIP_-_1906_-_7

  • Aries Venus conjuncts the South Node
  • Aquarius Mercury opposes Leo Jupiter Rx
  • Mercury sextiles Aries Uranus
  • Jupiter Rx trines Uranus

Tons of Fire with Mercury fanning the flames from an Air sign.

Shall we?

Combining these events, three clear celestial theatres of the day emerge.

#1  Venus will go to work on your past—namely letting go of dead weight. Finally putting to rest any relationships and/or financial habits that are more roadblock than sure shot will be high on the agenda.

It will be fast, Aries style, along the lines of “What the hell have I been doin’ all these years?!?!?!?”

#2  Mercury will go to work on your future. He and Jupiter finally get to exact their opposition at 14º. They were denied this act back when Mercury went retrograde literally hours before culmination and now it will be realized.

Here the logic of Aquarius waltzes with the faith of Leo. Back and forth, back and forth. Add to this dynamic the out-of-this-world operations of Uranus and it makes for a heady couple days of uncanny mental insight.

#3  As for Jupiter trining Uranus, we are implored to contemplate how religion, education and politics can be used to make the world a better place . . . or not?

Their trine lasts longer than the short-lived trysts of Venus and Mercury, sticking around through Thursday’s Full Moon, on into the second week of March. I will have plenty more to say about this duo in later posts.

Lastly, please keep in mind, there is a myriad of planets in Fire in the Heavens. Things happen quick and sometimes it will burn.

Choose to see it as a cauterization rather than a inferno and the times to come will be warm and inviting.

venus & mars trine father time—feb 24th

la-belle-dame-sans-merciYesterday was melancholy.

Today should be better.

A lot better.

Our spirited duo, Aries Mars and Venus are trining Sagittarius Saturn, and well, trines just feel better.

Today’s 120º trine angle brings together two planets of same element and therefore have none of the up-your-ass annoyance that characterize yesterday’s 90º square.

Element vs. Modality, of sorts.

Even old sour puss Saturn mellows when under a trine’s influence.

Fire signs, such as today’s players—Aries and Sadge, promise passion and speed, while Mars and Venus are two of the solar system’s consummate worker bees—a trine doubles your pleasure.

Father Time interacting with this pair adds stability and proper form. Everything that seemed impossible on Monday, will now feel effortless on Tuesday.

Whatever chinks in the armor Sun/Saturn illuminated under the square, can now be resolved with gutsy promptness under the trine. Use the former to get to the latter—one into the other.

Those of us with planets and points at the beginning degrees of the Fire signs feel the goodness most acutely.

And finally, remember, Venus and Mars together is almost always super sexy. We can all bask in that glow as we continue through our week.

Bonus!!!

december 2nd—the Clauses have a date

Charles-Edward-Halle-Paolo-Band-FrancescaWell, as if things couldn’t get much happier in the Heavens, December 4th, the Goddess of Love and Attraction hooks up once again with Mr. Claus himself, Leo Jupiter!

Leo and Sagittarius couldn’t be more suited for pairing, each simply understands the other.

The houses of your chart blessed with this interaction will be ablaze with the feel-good vibes of Fire Benefics in easy aspect.

Jupiter and Venus love a good party and although this occurs on a Thursday, it lends an irrepressible joyous ambiance to whatever you find yourself doing.

Work or play, it’s gonna feel great!

It does not get better than this.

full moon prepatory cascade

From November the 2nd through the 5th, we have a series of events that will be setting up the Scorpio Full Moon on Thursday, the 6th.

First, Venus sextiles Pluto around midnight on the 2nd, giving a sexy vibe to the chilly autumn night.  The extra hour we obtain from Daylight Savings Time may come in uber handy for the weekend’s galavanting.

WB2_0022_She-was-the-Queen-of-them-allThen at dawn that morning, the Pisces Moon will conjunct Chiron and trine the Venus/Sun Scorpio conjunction.

Lots of Water.

The early A.M. will feel loaded with by-gone wounds. Obsessions and traumas may flare.

Or a transformation may come with the rising first light of day—locking the past firmly in the rear mirror.

Regardless, the Moon moves quick and she will be long gone from the scene by sunset.
