The compass needle seems to be drifting south. The true north is descending past the cities and the urbanification of my modern mind. I’m gravitating back towards the untamed possibilities of jazz, listening to Lester and Roscoe whistle, honk, blast and wail all the way back to Amenhotep, with a stop at Beale Street along the way. Jazz, true jazz is the unfettered voice of liberation, pushing outwards at the boundaries of form.
As we dissolve into the early moments of the 30th of March, the planets tug and strain in a complex passion play of eternal sky. The Sun, Moon and Pluto are triangulated and tense. So many needs and wants, so many demanding points of agreement and negotiated supplication.
In the Moon, we want complete and utter empathy, to be in the embrace of another that needs …
Today on the boards – Positive Saturn Return?
Traditionally, trines and sextiles are considered, “good”, squares and oppositions, “bad” or at the very least, “challenging”. Conjunctions are judged on a case by case basis.
For example, a conjunctions to Jupiter or Venus (considered benefices) are “good”, conjunctions to Saturn or Mars (considered malefic), “bad”.
You have to start somewhere and this is a likely place to start but I would not take this information too literally because the idea there are “no bad aspects” in astrology is more than a sign of our politically correct times.

With Saturn retrograde at the end of Libra, this is a good time to reassess our relationship goals. This weekend Venus in Taurus and retrograde Mercury in Pisces sextile forming a yod (finger of fate) with Saturn. Neither Venus nor Mercury is in easy aspect with solid, old Saturn but joining forces in an aspect of opportunity this makes for a good time to capitalize on their cohesive focus. Venus in Taurus likes sensual pleasure and Mercury in Pisces senses the underlying currents readily. Ceres on their midpoint opposing Saturn suggests the best road to success here is in taking a nurturing tone in offsetting the appearance of a parental stance. Communicate with integrity and don’t dress like a stripper.

Expect some ick and yuck and muck to surface. Many apologies to Libra!
We’ve still got two Grand Trines though, so just ride it out!

(Mercury, Mars and Saturn are all doing the backwards shuffle.)
In previous posts I gave an overview of Saturn Returns in general (Part One) and specifically of Saturn in Libra (Part Two) for those people who are experiencing it now – and the lessons and ideas we can all learn from taking a closer look at what’s happening to this cohort.
There are two major astrological factors to a Saturn Return. Obviously, there is the condition of Saturn in the natal chart. As I discussed in the previous piece, for Saturn in Libra people of the last two generations this is complicated by some …
Back on the first week of February I posted that Neptune was going back to his home sign Pisces. The last time he was in his home sign was between 1848 and 1861. As I mentioned then we should prepare to see a lot of interesting Neptunian news given a planet loves being in his home sign and will usually throw himself a party.
Such is the case this week when two very Neptunian stories made the news. Movie director James Cameron (note film and movies are a Pisces/Neptune endeavor) put himself in a specially designed submarine and dove to the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean.
The Mariana Trench’s Challenger Deep—the deepest point on Earth—looks as bleak and barren as the moon, according to James Cameron, who successfully returned just hours ago from the first solo dive to the
Uranus-Pluto, the US and China.
I’ll come back now to the US and what I think may be a looming political crisis.
So the US is a couple of years behind Europe with the Uranus-Pluto square, as our Suns tend to be around 9 or 10 of the cardinals, whereas the US is at 13 degrees. So we are in the middle of our crisis now, an economic crisis that has political roots, in the sense of Europe having attempted monetary union without the necessary political union.
The US Uranus-Pluto is still a couple of years off peaking, but I think we had a strong indicator of what it could be about when America had its credit rating downgraded for the first time ever last year because the politicians couldn’t agree on a budget. The credit agencies …
So Mercury Retrograde is doing its strange magic. The Supreme Court is flirting with throwing out Obamacare in its entirety. Frankly, this has thrown even this astrologer for a loop. With Mars in Virgo retro, we see all things health related under review. That goes from personal fitness, all the way from stair-masters, to the collective and the steps of the Supreme Court. Throw in a heavy dose of Saturn in Libra retro which apparently does not want to be ignored in the retrograde parade and the Obama admin could have a big, steaming pile of poo on their hands. What do you expect for a president sworn in under Mercury Retrograde?
Who are the big losers if this happens (I have my doubts still) besides Obama? The big insurance companies? The horny eugenicists? Yes, they’ll have their …
