The astrological weather patterns are about to make a dramatic change.

We have planets changing signs, changing directions, and making a series of intense, high-energy aspects with each other.

And since a lot of that energy is unleashed over the next week or so, it could be enough to generate a super storm.

Jupiter has now moved into Leo and is about to be joined by the Sun; Venus has moved into Cancer; Mercury is about to oppose Pluto and square Uranus; Saturn is changing to Direct motion while Uranus goes into Retrograde mode.

And the killer change is Mars finishing an unusually long journey through the diplomatic sign of Libra, shifting into Scorpio and heading for a conjunction with Saturn … when the “drive” energy smashes into a brick wall.

Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio. Mars …

Don’t waste your own time.
You’ve got to handle it.

Should you charge bravely ahead?
Yes. & dot your i’s and cross your t’s along the way.

It’s alright to get gritty if that’s what it takes to make it work.
Saturn in Scorpio is humbling
If you worry about how you will be perceived you’ll never make it.
Ask for help. From friends, from strangers.

People are kinder than you think.
Let your situation be known, and accept what you are offered.

This is the ~NO WAY OUT BUT THROUGH~ combination.

You know enough to know what you should be doing.
Here comes your backbone (Saturn) to help you along.

If you want a new way out of an old situation you can have one,
Begin today, and when does it happen?
Well, NOW and soon.

Coincidence and …

transitionYou can see that Jupiter has just entered, Leo.  The Sun, Venus and Mercury will follow, over the next few weeks.  All four bodies will be in Leo by August 12th.

You may have noticed I’ve been posting less. This is because all those planets in Cancer are in my 6th house. I’m working behind the scenes, basically. I’m working beneath the horizon.

I’m working on my class, primarily, but also writing newsletters and working with clients.

I’m also working in my garden, working on getting our house (Cancer) ready to sell. This includes hiring workers to help (6th house), scheduling deliveries of materials and stuff. Basically, I am working my ass off, if you must know.

transit watch elsa 4Mercury in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn at 11 degrees, on Monday, July 21st. This will manifest as power struggles over the weekend, for many. You may avoid this by opting to discipline your mind.

These planets aspect my natal Mercury in Libra. Libra, the sign that Mars has been stuck in for nearly seven months.  That’s enough strife for me!

Those who are willing to think (Mercury) hard (Capricorn) and deep (Pluto) have the best chance of avoiding projecting their shadow, which ultimately gets them nowhere.

Saturn’s last months in Scorpio, and his upcoming transit through Sagittarius, will stir up some contrast. He’ll be squaring Jupiter in Leo, and then squaring Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Virgo (after Jupiter’s transit of Leo). What do these … Continue reading →

Paula as BillieFriday night the Moon in Mars-ruled Aries opposes Mars in Venus-ruled Libra. Venus is just over the border into Cancer, Moon-ruled Cancer semi-sextile Jupiter in Leo. I don’t know why I can’t get this out of my head, but I’m thinking, “Making babies… making pretty babies.” So, you know, take care of that, cos that’s a pretty luscious boy-girl swing going on there. Not that you have to have the biologically directed parts to act out this energy, you don’t, Maude bless you. Pink and blue for everyone!(…)

Another air tragedy – and so soon after the still unsolved MH370 mystery. Today’s crash also involved Malaysian Airlines.

A Malaysian airliner reportedly with 295 people on board has crashed in Ukraine near the Russian border, on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. It has been reported that it appears to have been shot down by a surface to air missile, possibly mistakenly.

According to a…

Venus will be leaving flirty Gemini this Friday, July 18, for the soothing waters of Cancer where she is far more sensitive to emotional undercurrents. In fact, Venus in Cancer ought to come with a warning label: Handle with care, bruises easily.

Thoughtful, loving and kind, this gentle Venus can surprise you at times. After all Cancer is a crab with powerful pincers. Generally though she prefers to pull back into her protective shell and hide her sense of vulnerability from prying eyes. She is happiest mated to someone with Mars in the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) [...]

As the planets move into Cancer, emotional tensions/empathy rise and fall (even though Jupiter’s left Cancer for Leo). Venus enters Cancer on the 18th, and Mercury in Cancer trines Neptune Rx in Pisces (at 7 degrees, exact on the 19th). … Continue reading →
