April 18 to May 17 2015
The New Moon on April 18, 2015 happened at the 28th
degree of Aries. The theme this month is tied to strength and everything
that's personal and driven by the ego. Aries draws energy from the
personality and its own desires.
Wherever Aries is in our horoscope shows where we take
things very personal. It stimulates us to action and even aggressive
behavior or enhances the warrior spirit. Aries needs to be active and emphasizes our muscles and
Mars Rules Aries
Mars is the planetary ruler of Aries and both are
masculine in nature and tied to the gods of war. Aries rules over fire,
weapons, tools, violence and the militant side of life. Self
preservation is the prime objective.
With Mars in Taurus now, the natural warrior energy
will be focused on the things that sustain, nourish and provide
necessities. This means much energy will be put into accumulating
wealth, food, weapons and whatever else is deemed necessary to the
Mars makes a favorable aspect to another potential "bad
boy" of the solar system, Pluto. This trine aspect gives the
ability to manipulate those in power to get what the ego wants. "Death"
of a powerful foreign or political leader may play a part in a new rise
to power. The
aggressive, death and rebirth or "sharing" side of life provides
collaboration on some level during this Aries Lunar Month.
Where is the New Moon in Your Horoscope?
This Aries Lunar Month or New Moon cycle happens when the Sun and Moon
come together at 28 degrees of Aries. New Moon cycles start on a New
Moon and last until the following New Moon. This Aries Lunar Month cycle
is in effect from April 18 until May 17. During this period, it is good for "new beginnings" and
activities that relate to Aries. In other words, war, fights, ego
conflicts and physical strength are given more energy in our lives. Each of us
will feel the influences of this Aries New
Moon in the area of our horoscope in which it occurs. Its
House position in your horoscope shows in some symbolic way what area
of life to look for the most activity and where to plant the symbolic
"seeds" for future Aries growth.
There are two basic birth charts we look at in astrology. One is the
solar chart and is based on our Sun Sign. This interpretation looks at
everything from our individual Sun's point of view. Therefore, it gives
a reading based more on the inner personality or "spirit".
The natal chart is based on the degree of the zodiac on the eastern
horizon at the exact moment and place of birth. This degree is called
your Ascendant. This natal chart is earth oriented and based on the
outer or physical personality. This chart is more helpful in dealing
with "life here on earth".
When looking at most "Sun Sign" type readings (like this), you should

as well as your Sun sign. If you don't know
your Ascendant, drop me a
note with your birth info (exact
time, place and birth date) and I'd be glad to let you know for free.
Current Lunar Month
18 to May 17, 2015
ARIES - With the Aries New Moon in your 1st House, the
focus will be on you and everything that is personal. This may relate
to your health, your physical body, your eyes or your face. With Mars in
Taurus your personal relationship with food, money or possessions is
accented. It is easy to waste your resources on fun, children and
entertainment. This can be a great
time to plant the seeds for future financial goals. It is
also a time for you to begin new activities relating to Aries. The physical world is accented now
and energy is the keyword. Physical strength and a desire to push ahead
and start new projects are
tied to this Aries symbolism. This can be a very
productive time. Much can be accomplished.
- The Aries New Moon resides in your 12th House and requires
sacrificing the ego and suggests more "behind the scenes"
type activities. Secrets, sorrows or frustrations involving your
personal life may be important. You may sacrifice for others or serve
others from behind the scenes or in a volunteer type situation. You may
be called upon to sympathize with people who are sick or isolated in
some way, or you may be involved with other people's health, pets or
their work. You are apt to feel somewhat insecure and more sensitive
now. This can turn to anger if you are forced into isolation. This is
actually a good time to get off by yourself to recharge, meditate or
pray. Better yet, do some physical work behind the scenes for the good
of others. Volunteer yourself for a
good cause. It is a time to focus on inner strength.
The trick is to be sympathetic and compassionate without letting others
take advantage of you.
GEMINI - The New Moon in your 11th House means
you will be drawn to Aries experiences through friends, groups and
organizations. This can mean more parties and friendly "get togethers"
with people who tend to be more masculine or Aries like in nature. This
is a great time for outdoor activities like hunting and camping. These
Aries type friends or groups accentuate fire and cutting, as well as
drums and percussion instruments. Aries accents people who are involved
in the army or military in some way. Aries also rules metallurgy and
welding. Of course, the god of war can bring out ego conflicts or anger
where friends or groups are concerned. If this aggressiveness can be
focused in a positive way it can be good time for expending energy with
CANCER - The 10th House is all about honor, prestige and career.
It is where we receive fame or infamy. You could receive awards or
notoriety for Aries type activities or experiences. For instance, you
could be honored for shooting, hunting or fighting. Things ruled by
Aries will affect your popularity. You could be known for your military
abilities or activities. This is a time to deal with professional people
who are involved with firearms, fire related things, cutting
instruments, surgery or ophthalmology. A "guru" or leader of some kind
may be more influential in your life during this lunar month. On another
level, you may be known for your strength, leadership abilities or your
LEO - The Aries New Moon in your 9th House may bring about a
very personal philosophical awakening of some kind. This would be a
good time to get out into nature and establish a personal connection
to your God. You may have a great desire to travel and a need for
freedom. Travel may require much strength or energy. Dream time may
provide direction for you during this New Moon cycle. Outdoor
activities around the campfire are good ways to use this fiery magic.
Activities and shared experiences with in-laws or foreigners can be
exhausting but enjoyable. Philosophical discussions with others are
likely to be heated, but somehow rewarding.
VIRGO - Your Aries ruled 8th House is the area
of the chart that has to do with sharing and dealing with other
people's resources. It is also the House of death and rebirth. You are
tuned in more to other people's aggressive ego oriented side now. You
are more sensitive and even psychic during this lunar cycle. During
this cycle you may find yourself joining forces with others for Aries
type endeavors. This may include hunting, camping, sports, and other "manly" type activities. Other people's problems may require your
physical strength or you may require the same from others. Combine
your resources with others to accomplish more.
LIBRA - The 7th is the House of partners. You attract the
Aries energies from close personal relationships including various
"partners" in life - love, business or otherwise. This is a good time
for social experiences that require a lot of energy or physical
strength. Outdoor activities with groups of people are likely. This is
a good time to socialize with men or more macho type people. You may
find yourself involved in competitive activities during this lunar
month. The aggressive nature of Aries brings up the possibility of ego
conflicts with others. Partners can be a source of anger or pain now.
Libra always draws the Mars/Aries energy from other people in your
SCORPIO - Aries rules your 6th House and therefore this New
Moon accents service related activities. Work and co-workers are tied
to this Aries energy. This means men and the basic masculine energy
are a major part of your work experience for this lunar cycle.
Co-workers or employees may be more aggressive, but if this energy can
be focused in a positive direction a lot can be
accomplished. On another level, personal health is more important for
one reason or another. Aries rules the eyes and face or head. You may have trouble with your eyes or you may have a fever
or infection during this lunar month. Problems that relate to bites,
cuts, burns or punctures could be part of this Aries influence. Take
care around animals and insects.
SAGITTARIUS - The New Moon is in your 5th House of recreation,
creativity, romance and children. This means you may spend much of
your energy on recreation or creative endeavors during this lunar
month. Sports, races or other high energy recreation fit this Aries
influence. You may enjoy games and other one-on-one competitive
activities more this month. Children are likely to be important and
will stir up a lot of energy. They can be a source of great strength
and creative stimulation. Outdoors recreation with friends and
children are good ways to use this energy. Get in touch with that "child
within" and beat your own drum for a few weeks. You are sure to
attract attention. Gambling for money may be problematic.
CAPRICORN - The 4th House represents the home base - the
family, your past memories and the mother energy in your life. You are
more in tune with the strength of the mother or your mother may
require your strength for some reason. You are apt to experience much
more activity around the home. Expect things around the house to get
broken or burnt. Another side to this could be activity around the
home that involves construction or tools. This also indicates "pushy"
tendencies where the parents or family are concerned. On the other
hand, a strong positive family influence can be just what is needed
around the home.
AQUARIUS - The 3rd House represents our ability to teach and
learn. It brings out the intellect and the ability to communicate with
others. People in our lives who are close on some level, like siblings
and neighbors, are also part of this energy that
accents the masculine aggressive side of life. You tend to associate
your ego with your intellect. This would be a good time to study or
teach Aries subjects, like things pertaining to the eyes, face, guns,
cutting instruments, metals, violence, wars etc. You may hear or read
more about these things during this lunar cycle. This area of the
chart also rules vehicles and Aries is the Sign of speed, so be
careful how you combine these energies. Beware of ego conflicts where
siblings and neighbors are concerned - especially involving money.
PISCES - With the New Moon in your Aries 2nd House of money and
possessions, you tend to be in a "spend" cycle. You may spend money in
an aggressive way or you may purchase Aries type objects like glasses, guns,
knives, fire, sports equipment, etc. Pisces people tend to identify
in a personal way with their possessions. Ego conflicts and anger may
somehow relate to your attitude toward finances. Possessions may
become broken. The head, face and eyes are ruled by Aries, so you will
probably spend money on these areas during this lunar cycle. Eye
glasses may be important for one reason or another.
20, to Sept 12, 2015
The New Moon on March 20, 2015
at 29 degrees 27 minutes of Pisces is the Solar Eclipse and therefore begins
a 6 month cycle that ends on September 12, 2015. Pisces
is water and
stirs up the imagination, as well as, the spiritual side in all of us.
It is very "right brain" oriented and emphasizes the more feminine,
sensitive or emotional side.
The mystical, magical, other worldly realms are more in tune with
ruled by Neptune and has to do with water, liquids, oil and gas. This 6
month period may bring with it increased water problems in the form of
snow fall, floods or drought. There could be more oil spills or gas
leaks in the news during this eclipse cycle. Neptune also has to do with
alcohol and drugs, so these things might be accented more for some
Pisces is represented by the two fish bound together trying to swim in
opposite directions. One is the ego and the other is the soul. The soul
serves the ego or the ego serves the soul. "Serve or suffer" is the key
for Pisces. When the advanced Pisces gives up the ego, then sensitivity,
compassion and understanding are its greatest resources. This is why
some Pisces people tend to be more psychic and can tune in to
subconscious levels - like the spirit or dream world. This sensitivity
and need to serve also gives an affinity for occupations that work with
healing the afflicted.
The last sign of the Zodiac is not really comfortable in this world.
Pisces is ready to get back to the source and may even feel this is their
last incarnation on earth. In this life Pisces people may try to retreat from the
This need for isolation is why Pisces rules over such things as
hospitals, prisons and monasteries. Of course, there are positive and
negative ways to do this. Escaping through prayer, meditation and other
spiritual methods are usually better than through self destruction,
deception, liquor, drugs and other addictive tendencies.
The Pisces energy makes it a good time for dealing with
fantasy, illusion, non-reality and things of the imagination. TV, film, animation, video, photography, music and poetry
fit this vibration. Pisces is the Sign of believing and believers. It is the Sign of sacrifice and martyrs and
rules the "Christian Age" with its Prophet who is sacrificed
on a cross for humanity. Humility and sacrifice are lessons to learn
when Pisces is strong in your life. In
the physical body it rules the feet and the ability to stand. In some
way we will each deal with this Pisces Eclipse cycle until September
The Iraq War
A side note to this March 20, 2015
Pisces Solar Eclipse is that 12 years ago on March 20, 2003 the Iraq war
began. This means that this current Eclipse is activating all the Pisces
stuff that represented the Iraq War. This reminds me of Brian Williams
who was recently sacrificed by NBC for "misremembering" events of that
war. It also seems to fit the symbolism of the rise and fall of the "American
Sniper". The hope may be that some of the people who used lies, that
led to that war, will have to face the music. They'll probably be a lot
more of this kind of symbolism until the next Eclipse Cycle begins in

degrees 27 minutes of Pisces is in your horoscope shows where your
ability to sacrifice or feel compassion for others is accented. We are
all in a position to learn spiritual lessons now. Issues relating to
self delusion and true spiritual attitudes are being tested and rewarded
during this New Moon cycle in Pisces.
There are two basic birth charts we look at in astrology. One is the solar
chart and is based on our Sun Sign. This interpretation looks at
everything from our individual Sun's point of view. Therefore, it gives
a reading based more on the inner personality or our "spirit".

always look for your
(if you know it) and then your Sun sign.

Pisces Solar Eclipse
to September 12, 2015
- Pisces rules your 12th House. This area has to do with the parts of
our personality that are below the surface. It's the subconscious, karmic
side of life and the "home base" of Pisces, the 12th Sign. Aries people like to hide
their sensitive Pisces side. They want to be seen as tough and having a
strong exterior, but sacrificing for the good of those who need it, is
their greatest inner strength. This is a good time to get off by
yourself for some meditation or self analysis. Be honest and humble, but
don't let yourself be duped or taken advantage of by those involved in illicit deeds. This is an
excellent time to get involved in some kind of volunteer organization or
- With Pisces on your 11th House, you are loyal and sacrificial where friends
are concerned. You are very sensitive and feelings can be hurt easily by
friends. This is a time to focus on groups, organizations, new friends,
humanitarian goals, "new age" ideals, networking with others and plans
for the future. Do things with friends that have to do with movies,
music, dance, water sports and liquor. Use your imagination where
future plans are concerned. Fantasy, spiritualism and idealism are more
important this eclipse cycle - especially through groups, organizations or
Gemini - Your career and relationships with authority figures
should be more important during March with the New Moon in your 10th
House. Your authority, may be tested more during this 6 month cycle.
Pisces is always tied to your career or your honor in some way. People
will look up to you, or you will be in the public eye for some reason
related to medicine, music, movies, dance or your spiritual side. Your
honor and prestige is somehow tied in with music, video, photography or
spiritual things now. Your attention may be drawn to businesses involved
with space or water. Doctors, hospitals and medicine are apt to be more
important this eclipse cycle.
Cancer - The Pisces
Eclipse in your 9th House says get out of your shell and experience life
over the next 6 months. Travel,
foreign people, places and cultures can offer spiritual growth.
Cancers have the ability to reach the highest spiritual ideals by
sacrificing the ego for the good of the world. Higher education
may involve music, video or photography. Religion, politics and
other philosophical ideals are accented. In-laws and legal people may be
more important this 6 month eclipse cycle. Your faith
and philosophical beliefs may be tested now, but this can be a
inspiration, insight and spiritual enlightenment. Take note of your
dreams and those magical, mystical trips you take in your sleep.
- Pisces rules your 8th House of other people's money and joint
resources. Taxes, inheritances, insurance money, etc. are often
accentuated. This time of year is always about sharing sacrificially
for others, but this New Moon is a Solar Eclipse and lasts until
September 12th. Leo's biggest lesson and spiritual reward comes from
being humble and willing to sacrifice the Leo pride when dealing with
others and their resources. Accept help from others, but avoid wasting
their time, energy and good will. It is a time to be sympathetic to
others and their problems. This is a good time to deal with others on
a spiritual level. Psychic experiences, intuition and death and
rebirth symbolism is also accented.
Virgo - Pisces is your opposite sign and your 7th House cusp.
The accent is now on your partner and other people in your life. You
naturally attract Pisces type people into your life. You may socialize
with spiritual type people, Christians or people whose interests are tied in
with metaphysics, paranormal or ghosts. Video, music or the medical
field are also tied to the Pisces energy you attract from others. You may be attracted to
swimming, fishing, and/or boating people. During this Pisces time
of year, your social life always picks up and it is normally a great time to
meet new people.
The negative side of Pisces on the 7th can involve addictive types and
Remember that this new moon is a solar eclipse and its influence will
be felt though September 12, 2015.
Libra - Pisces rules your 6th House. This area of the chart has
to do with things like health, service, clothes, pets and your work
environment. The Pisces New Moon combines music, dance, fantasy, spiritual subjects,
sacrifices, hospitals and the medical field with these 6th House
energies. It would be a good time for volunteer work. Serve with
beverages, soup, music, photography or film. You always have
this influence in your life, but during the next 6 months it should be more
noticeable. Alcohol and drugs and even prescription medicine can be
problematic during this cycle. Health issues may be mysterious
and may have
to do with the feet or ability to stand.
Scorpio - Pisces is on your 5th House cusp. This is
the area of the chart that involves self expression, creativity and
recreation. You should feel more creative and imaginative during this
6 month cycle.
Pisces type people will help bring out your creative, artistic or
playful side and may somehow accentuate the children in your life or
the "child within". Sacrifices, medical concerns or spiritual
matters may be combined with children or creativity in some way. Create something
artistic with that Pisces vision and imagination. Do something fun or
entertaining that involves liquid, water, film, video, photography and
music or dance.
Sagittarius - The 4th House has to do with your home, mother
figures in your life and your past. This encompasses land, real
estate, family, as well as, people and experiences from your past.
Genealogy or ancestry may be more important over the next 6 months. The Pisces
influence may tie in music and dance to the home base. Photography,
film or video from the past may be accented more for you this eclipse
cycle. Liquor, drugs, water, oil or gas may part of it. The mother
combined with sorrow or sacrifice of some kind. Isolation or
hospitalization is possible. You may feel removed from the family or
the home base in some way.
Capricorn - Your Pisces 3rd House
is all about communication, education and transportation. It is
concerned with people close to you on some level like sisters,
brothers, roommates, neighbors and people who are as close as
siblings. For you, these people are always tied to Pisces things like
medicine, hospitals, mysteries, fantasy, spiritual subjects and
personal sacrifice. Water, liquid or gas related problems with cars or
neighbors are possible. Community activities that involve music, dance,
photography, water recreation and movies are apt to be important. Reading, writing, books,
maps, libraries, etc. are combined with things like music, video,
animation, spiritual subjects or mysticism.
Aquarius - This 6 month
eclipse cycle will accent your
2nd House of money and possessions. With Pisces here, your
personal values and self worth are combined with spiritual interests.
Aquarians must learn the true sense of value, and it isn't the
material side of life. Sacrificing your resources for the good of
those less fortunate is the spiritual lesson for Aquarius. Money can
be made through Piscean symbolism as well. In other words, things like
health care, medicine, chemicals, liquid, liquor, oil, gasses, spiritual
interests, music, the imagination and anything involving water are
some methods of income for you.
Pisces - This Eclipse is in your 1st House and is all about you, Pisces - especially if
you were born around March 20th. You heart is with your imagination,
faith and belief system. Your strength is in your ability to tune in to
others with compassion and understanding. You are normally laid back
and quiet or even shy, but the New Moon in your Sign can bring out
your best qualities. Music, dance and movies are good outlets for you.
Do something with other people now. Party or socializing with
friends is good now. You may be involved with friends on a more personal or even
emotional level now. Health
matters relating to the feet, ankles and ability to stand are
Uranus Square Pluto
in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn aspect is still affecting us all.
Together they will make 7 exact hits before they separate completely
from this tense square (90 degree angle) set of aspects. After March 16,
2015 the next set of Uranus square Pluto aspects begins in April of
there are 7 direct hits due to their individual retrograde cycles, we
will feel the effects of this powerful aspect on and off throughout this
period between June 2012 and March 2015. Uranus in Aries symbolizes a
push for change, while Pluto in Capricorn indicates death and rebirth
where structures in life are concerned. Whether these changes and
transformations are willing or forced, they will bring times of great
nervous tension and literal or symbolic death and rebirth depending on
where they occur in our individual horoscopes.
Uranus Square Pluto and
Uranus is the planet of opposition, breakups and rebellion. It rules
groups and organizations as well as computers, networks and the
internet. Since Pluto rules insurance and other people's resources, this
seems to fit the "Obama Care" fiasco. In June of 2012 at the time of the
first hit, the opposition from the right were dealt a blow from Supreme
Court when Chief Justice Roberts declared Obama Care legal. Since then
as this aspect becomes exact again and again, there have been, and will
probably be more attempts to destroy it by the opposition from the
extreme right like, those in the Tea Party. Around the exact hit on
November 1, 2013 Obama Care seemed like it would be consumed in its own
ashes due to the website debacle. Now as the rollout on January seems to
be going better, and the far right is in the smoldering mode, it will be
interesting to see what kind of excitement we will see around April 22,
2014 which is the next hit and combines squares and oppositions to
Jupiter and Mars. Will the December 15, 2014 hit be terrorism,
rebellion, racial tension or more tension involving healthcare,
insurance and financial institutions. The deadline to sign up for 2015
Obama Care was set to be Monday, December 15, 2014. That was extended,
so I wonder if it will be closer to March 16th, the last Uranus/Pluto
Saturn in Sagittarius
December 23, 2014 to December 19, 2017
Saturn begins it's transit of the Sign Sagittarius on
December 23, 2014 and remains until December 19, 2017. Saturn takes
approximately 29 years to move through Zodiac. The last time it entered
Sagittarius was November 1985. Everything related to Sagittarius will begin
to take on a more serious or even Saturnine influence.
Saturn is about following the rules and the consequences
of taking short cuts. It is said to be the Planet of karma, because if you
have followed the rules in the past you can reach the top. If you take
shortcuts, the fall will eventually catch up. This is why Saturn is about
things like fear, control, limitation, discipline and responsibilities, as
well as, leadership and authorities. While it moves through Sagittarius,
travel, foreign people and distant places are under its control. This seems
to say that over the next 3 years we should be prepared for more control,
restriction or fear where travel and travelers are concerned. More rules and
conditions for travel and immigration are likely.
The last time Saturn moved through Sagittarius, hijackers took
over a flight in Malta which ended in 50 deaths, airports in Rome and Vienna
were attacked by terrorists with hand grenades and submachine guns, 250 US
soldiers died in DC-8 crash, the Challenger space craft blew up killing all
aboard and the US accidentally shot down an Iranian passenger plane killing
290. We will probably see more tragedies involving travel or the travel
industry during this 3 year transit of Saturn in Sagittarius. The fear of
foreigners and travelers makes sense in light of the Ebola fears and terror
threats. For those who follow the rules of Saturn and are careful, disciplined and
responsible, the Sagittarian influence can be positive. It brought us the first plane to circle
the earth non stop without refueling on December 23, 1985. While Saturn
transited Sagittarius, the first human powered airplane was introduced along
with the first Stealth aircraft.
Saturn also rules the cold, ice and crystallization. It
can bring congestion in the body and in life.
Sagittarius rules outdoors, nature and the weather. Many will deal more with
snow and cold weather, and cold weather diseases over the next 3 years. Limitations and restrictions
due to weather are more likely. Efforts to control the weather could be more
important. It is also interesting that crystallized cocaine or
"crack" was first brought to public attention in a big way in November 1985.
The laws of man, as well as the Laws of God, are likely to
be more restrictive, controlling or fearful. This includes fear and distrust
of law enforcement, the legal system and prejudicial authority figures. Control issues relating to racial, religious and political
fundamentalism are accented now. Of course, Al Qaeda, ISIL and the Islamic State are all
about this kind of religious intolerance and absolute control, but there are
many others closer to home who could be put in that same category. The last
time Saturn entered Sagittarius was in 1985 which was called "the year of
terrorism". Religious and political leaders are also vulnerable and may fall
from grace during this transit due to scandals.
Sagittarius rules over institutes of higher learning,
political systems, as well as religious institutions, so this Saturn transit
brings restrictions, limitations and more control where these type
organizations are concerned. Harsh restrictions on travel and freedom. School funding and
college loans are likely to suffer even more.
Where is transiting Saturn in your chart?
CURRENT TRANSIT: December 23, 2014 to December 19, 2017 LAST TRANSIT: November 17, 1985 to November 12, 1988
As you read this, think back to the last time this happened in November of
1985. It may help understand how this Saturn/Sagittarius combination will
affect you for the next 3 years.
ARIES - With Sagittarius on the 9th House cusp,
there is karmic pressure to get out more and experience life.
Responsibilities or fear may focus on things like travel, publishing, politics,
religion, foreigners and in-laws. The legal system is accented and may
require discipline or leadership on your part. Saturn encourages us to
follow the rules, or else! So, take extra care when traveling and keep a
close eye on the weather, especially ice and snow.
TAURUS - Sagittarius is on your 8th House cusp.
This brings long distant responsibilities and karmic lessons where travel
and partner's resources are concerned. It also has to do with legal
responsibilities involving taxes, insurance or inheritance over the next 3
years while Saturn moves through your 8th House. Partner's resources are
more serious, businesslike or tied to their ambition. Money from outside
sources may be restricted.
GEMINI - You have Sagittarius on the 7th House
cusp, which draws this Saturn energy from others. Other people may restrict
your freedom or hold you back in some way or you may just fear that first
contact. Your karmic lesson involves expanding your horizons where other
people are concerned. These relationships may involve travel, foreigners,
education, publishing or religion. Saturn may bring political opponents or
partners into your life during this 3 year cycle.
CANCER - You have Sagittarius on the 6th House cusp so work or
service is tied to travel or foreign places. You may work for a foreigner or
they may work for you. Saturn is your natural partner. It rules your
Capricorn 7th House. This means that service will likely involve your
partner and construction or business. Over the next 3 years, karmic lessons
involving service, health or pets are tied to personal experiences and
natural occurrences. It's time to get off the couch and get out more. Fresh
foods and natural medicines are the best for Cancers.
LEO - Sagittarius is on your 5th House cusp. Long
distant children or grandchildren are tied to the control, discipline and
responsibilities of Saturn. This could be a child's ambitions or business is
important. It could be that work or problems involve children. This karmic
lesson can provide an opportunity to serve the child in your life. This
includes your own creativity. You can be very creative where where work is
concerned. You can build or construct in a very creative way.
VIRGO - With Sagittarius on the 4th House, there may be
a desire to build, construct or expand your home base. Virgos can express
their ambition through their creativity. Yours is focused on the home and
family for next 3 years. There may be heavy responsibilities or karmic
lessons to repeat relating to the mother, the family or children in the
home. Domestic responsibilities and personal security are issues that may
need your attention. If you've followed the "rules" and laid a strong
"foundation", you can build upon the past. If not, you will get a chance to
face the past again.
LIBRA - Saturn is entering your 3rd House over the
next 3 years. Heavy responsibilities and karmic lessons involve people and
things that are "close". This can be people who are close like siblings,
neighbors and close friends. It has to do with the neighborhood or
community you live in. You may feel confined or limited due to travel
restrictions or compelled to travel due to family responsibilities. Concerns
may involve business with neighbors or construction in the neighborhood.
Information, education and transportation may be limited due to long
SCORPIO - With Sagittarius on the 2nd House cusp,
responsibilities and karmic lessons will have to do with values, self worth
and your own personal resources. Travel and higher education may play a
part. This can be a time to take responsibility and build up your resources
over the next 3 years. Professional, financial or business help may come
through siblings, neighbors, in-laws or close friends. You can earn money
through neighborhood activities and things involving communication,
information, education and transportation.
SAGITTARIUS - Saturn is entering your 1st House
over the next 3 years. You are affected by karmic pressures in a very
personal way. You may feel restrictions to your freedom due to lack of
resources or more pressing responsibilities. If you have followed the rules,
this can be a time to expand, build and grow. Your honor, prestige and
notoriety are tied to your Sign now. Things like in-laws, the
legal system, publishing, travel, religion, politics, nature and higher
education could be part of this. These next 3 years can put you in a
position of authority with added responsibilities or it can be a time to
take on responsibilities and build toward the future.
CAPRICORN - With Sagittarius on the 12th House
cusp, personal responsibilities and karmic lessons will have to do with
humility, compassion and understanding. Sacrifices for others may involve
travel, in-laws, politics, education or legal things. Other people's work,
health, vehicles or their pets may become your responsibility at times
during this 3 year transit. This can be very good for getting more control
over the subconscious mind and things that are hidden or "below the
surface". Secrets, mysteries and the metaphysical world are of more concern
AQUARIUS - Sagittarius is on your 11th House cusp.
Saturn's karmic lessons and heavy responsibilities are focused on groups,
organizations, friends and your future. These things are always part of the
Aquarius experience, but now they are of a more serious nature. Travel,
education, publication, politics and religion are always tied to friends.
These things may play an even more important part in your life over the next
3 years. Business or control issues may arise that involve friends.
PISCES - Saturn is entering your 10th House over
the next 3 years. You are being affected by karmic pressures in a very
public way. If you have followed the rules in the past, avoided shortcuts,
and stuck with your goals, this can be a time of power, honor, prestige and
personal authority. If not, then authority figures will seem cold,
restrictive and negative. This is a time to take on responsibility and show
your leadership qualities. Friends or organizations may be helpful, even
though somewhat bossy or controlling. Career opportunities may involve
education or travel.
Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto entered Capricorn on the January 25, 2008.
Through it's normal periodic retrograde motion it moved back into
Sagittarius on June 13, 2008. On November 26, 2008 it moved back into
Capricorn where it will transit until March 23, 2023. This 15 year
transit combines some nasty energies. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio
and is the god of the underworld. It is the planet of terrorism, mass
death, WMD's, financial manipulation, the devil and all other under
worldly type characters. Capricorn is the sign of governments,
leaders, big corporations, ambition, and control. When you combine
these two qualities, you get some pretty scary situations and players
in world politics.
On the other hand, Pluto represents power and
Capricorn rules the color "black". It doesn't take much to see this as
"black power". Here in the US we are seeing that symbolism take place
in a hopefully positive way with the historic election of a Barack
Obama. It is interesting that the last time this transit occurred, the
US became a country. Therefore, this transit represents a very fated
period in time for this country. This idea of black power and powerful
black leaders should be more prevalent in the world during Pluto's
transit through Capricorn.
Financial manipulation is much easier to comprehend
now that we can watch the "big collapse" live on TV every hour, on the
hour. Then, there is the obsession by many with the "one world
government" fear and that "mark of the beast" thing, which is now
beginning to look more and more likely. Unless we all belong to their
club, we won't be able to buy, sell or trade. There is some extremely
high level wheeling and dealing going on between world financial
leaders now as we dig our way out of the financial collapse promised
by Osama Bin Laden right after 911. I think GWB answered, "bring it
The old rules and rulers are about to be
transformed. Pluto in Capricorn means a death and rebirth of world
structures, foundations and boundaries. Pluto may offer up some
extremely dangerous world leaders who are apt to use WMD's without
hesitation. This can be a time of assassinations of world
leaders and assassinations by world leaders.
We may have been given a hint as to what to expect
over the next 15 years. In January when Pluto dipped into Capricorn
for a few months, Benazir Bhutto was assassinated while running for a
high political office in Pakistan. The following unrest in the country
forced then leader Pervez Musharraf to resign peacefully.
Terror may rule or be used by rulers. Underground
terror of some kind is more likely. Pluto in Capricorn until 2023/2024
is a time of the volcano, both symbolically and literally.
State sponsored terrorism was common the last time
Pluto moved into Capricorn between 1762 and 1778. This was a time of
pirates. The USA was "born" during this period - July 4th 1776. The
biggest threat to trade was the Barbary Pirates who were backed by
North African Moslem countries. It seems this country has had some
connection to Islamic terrorism since the beginning.
Mercury retrograde is a cycle that occurs about 3 times a year for about 3
weeks each time. It is a time when Mercury appears to slow to a stop over
several days and then appears to move backwards in the sky. It means that
the symbolism related to Mercury, like communication, information and
transportation, has to be "revisited" on some level. Plans that are made
while Mercury is retrograde will have to be modified or rewritten. Mail,
email, telephone messages, etc. are likely to be areas of confusion or
frustration. Things get lost, machines break, light bulbs burn out and
anything related to cars can be a source of problems.
The key to using this period in a positive way is to go back to things
you've set aside and take a second look. You may be able to see things in a
different light and fix past problems that you gave up on before. Go back
and edit that unfinished book or document. It is a good time for research
and doing the background work on some future project. It seems to be a good
time for long distant trips from which you want to return. Just make sure
you run through the check list before you leave.
The main thing to remember is that during a Mercury retrograde cycle most
things relating to new beginnings will have to undergo some revision or be
trashed all together. Whenever possible, avoid finalizing plans or signing
important papers during these periods. Traveling or moving during a Mercury
retrograde period means you'll come back.

How Old is Western Civilization?
Gobekli Tepe is twice as old as the Egyptian pyramids and 7,000 years
older than England's Stonehenge.
How Old Is The Zodiac?
How old is
the Zodiac we use in western astrology? The oldest book of the Christian
Bible is Job. In this book, which includes discussions about fate, free will
and Karma, Job presents his argument to God by speaking in astrological
terms and mentions the Zodiac (Mazzoroth). The experts put Job to around
1500 BC. That's pretty old, but not even close to the findings of
Astronomer, Frank Edge, and his evidence that pushes the origins of the
Zodiac back to at least 10,000 BC!
has discovered interesting astrological correlations in the famous cave
paintings at Lascaux, France. These paintings show many images of the
ancient skies at least 12,000 years ago including the sign, Taurus, as the
traditional bull and Gemini as a birdman. To this day, Gemini is ruled by
Mercury, "the messenger of the gods". Mercury had wings on his head and
wings on his feet. I think you could call him a "bird" man. This proves that
the origins of the Western Zodiac are far older than previously thought.
Here are some
