stellium in pisces chart 2015We’ve got an impressive lineup in Pisces in February. That’s the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars and Neptune all in one sign.

Pisces is concerned with transcendence, sacrifice and universality.  Check the house in your chart where this stellium falls. Consider what you might sacrifice for the greater good.

The Leo Full Moon on February 3 (at 14 degrees) is a mix of tense and exuberant. Exuberant because it will be in Leo, trining Uranus (at 13 degrees Aries). This culmination will be big, bold and fired up by … Continue reading →

Two artists with very different styles were born on 29 January: In 1915, American Bill Peet, famous for his work and tempestuous times with Walt Disney, also for his many illustrated children’s story books. Born some 21 years later, in the UK, Patrick Caulfield, whose rather different version of 1960s pop-art won him fame.

Briefly:

Bill Peet (January 29, 1915, Grandview Indiana – May 11, 2002),…

hogwartsThursday morning the Moon in Gemini trines the Sun and sign ruler Mercury. With Mercury retrograde, the Sun and Mercury are set to cross over each other, but for now they face. It’s likely to bring up some unusual bits of information, some aha moments. It’s also possible that the morning mood enhances their assimilation, enabling a goal-changing perspective shift. (…)

I have been an astrologer since 1986, but I still learn from almost every reading I give. In astrology, there are more often than not fairly typical ways that people express things in their charts, and sometimes I can fall into a little bit of a rut by only sticking to those archetypes. Fortunately I am not a “by-the-book” kind of astrologer, so I always pay attention to what my client is telling me.

More often than not, the area where people will surprise me the most is “creativity.” I take a very long view on creativity. I expressed this idea at length in a previous post last year (http://wp.me/pJ9hq-f1) but in a nutshell I think creativity covers far more than the so-called “creative arts,” like music or painting or writing. I think all of us are creative …

David Palladini’s depiction of Aquarius
I’m as guilty as anyone else of being drawn into astrological cook-book expectations in relation to people with Sun in Aquarius. I’ve called Aquarius quirky, avant garde, rebellious, unpredictable, cold and aloof….y’all know the rest.

Humanitarian, another commonly stated characteristic of Aquarius can be apt, but fits more nearly with Pisces in…

elemental-truthThe Fifth Element

There’s some serious shit going down in the truth movement. I’m going to add a post by Linda Lake, which details much more of what I’m talking about. It’s important and it’s as serious as ongoing awakening process. Inside the matrix, we find that there are multiple levels, layers and even meanings. Just when you think you’ve hit the El Dorado of truth, finding the smoking gun that fires the magic bullet, you realize that it’s not the complete picture, not the ultimate truth that sets you and I and everyone else free, and yet that is what most of us are looking for, seeking.

Keep in mind that the people that manage this paradigm have massive resources at their disposal. They have enough computing power to create their own reality in sim life and they have …

Venus square Saturn Apparition of the Visage of Aphrodite by Salvador DaliApparition of the Visage of Aphrodite of Cnidos in a Landscape by Salvador Dali

Venus squares Saturn in Sagittarius on January 30, with both planets at 3 degrees of their respective signs. Venus in Pisces is not received by Saturn, making their connection difficult. If she had been received by Saturn, it would have mitigated his malefic nature and spared Venus some of the less pleasant interactions with the Great Malefic.

Wherever Venus in Pisces graces your horoscope, she encounters Saturn’s limitations three signs away. Pisces is a sign of the boundless sea. Its deity is Okeanos, the eternal, ever-fertile ocean which encircles the earth. Saturn, too, rules the sea: undrinkable, destructive, life-denying. Venus desires pleasure in the transcendence of limitations, while Saturn is the “pass-not” Pillars of Hercules. William Lilly writes that Venus and Saturn are natural enemies, …

Venus square saturn chartVenus is conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Mars is nearby.  This stellium in Pisces is highly prone to writhe around and fantasize.

Saturn in Sagittarius is coming in comes in hard with the truth. It’s a bit like seeing Tinkerbell hit a wall.

I have been the wall in some cases.  But last night I was Tinkerbell.

libra-bakelightNegotiation was the theme of the day.  I have Mars in Libra. My husband has Mars in Cancer. There’s a clash there.

My husband does not like how I negociate things. With Mars in Libra, I try to work with others. I try to be fair. He sees the person he is negotiating something with as being on the opposite side.
