 New Moon   August 14, 2015 to September 12, 2015

The New Moon on August 14 happens at 21 degrees 31 minutes of the fire sign Leo. This is the 3rd decan of  Leo which is Aries in nature. This means the normal Leo symbolism is mixed with Aries this lunar month. Leo has to do with creativity and creations. It is symbolized by the child and child-like activities. It is the actor and the artist that enjoys "showing off" and being the center of attention.

The Mars ruled Aries influence adds a militant or macho angle to the drama and entertainment of Leo. Leo is about speculation and when Aries is added, it hints at gambling on war.  Obama's gamble on war or peace with Iran and the GOP's gamble on war or peace with Trump  may fit this scenario. War games may be in the news more this lunar month.

Leo is the sign of royalty and can make good leaders. Bill Clinton's Sun is in Leo, President Obama's Sun is in Leo and Donald Trump has the 29th degree of Leo rising conjunct his Mars at 26 degrees of Leo. Mars rules Aries and together they are the Gods of war. Trump seems to really fit the flamboyant warrior archetype promised by his Mars rising in Leo.

Along with the Aries/Mars influence, this Leo New Moon is conjunct Venus, the Goddess of love, beauty, balance and personal relationships. Venus brings with it a need for social interaction and even competition with others. This combination could be good for sports, games and physical activity with others. This can be an excellent time for love and romance. Venus is all about luxury and rich taste, so when combined with Leo, artistic creativity and personal investments  lean toward gold and jewelry.  This should be a great month for fun and entertainment. Give your inner child full reign whenever possible this lunar month.

We all have 21 degrees of Leo somewhere in our charts. Wherever it is in your chart shows your ability to express your love, creativity and enjoyment.


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". It relates to our heart's desire.

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. It is more about the material and physical world. This chart is more helpful in dealing with "life here on earth".

 When looking at any "Sun Sign" type readings (like this), you should always look for your Ascendant (if you know it) and then 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.


Leo New Moon

August 14 to September 12, 2015

Aries - The Leo New Moon occurs in your 5th House. Children, art, gambling, games, sports and all types of entertainment are tied to the 5th House. Love and gain can come to you through these Leo type experiences during this lunar month.

Taurus - Leo rules your 4th House and therefore you naturally express your creativity and love through your home, land and real estate. During this New Moon cycle your family gives you joy and love. You may feel like investing in something luxurious for your home or mother.

Gemini - You have Leo on the 3rd House cusp and therefore you express your love and creativity through communication, education and transportation. During this lunar month, enjoy those who are close to you, like relatives, neighbors and closest friends. Engage more in the community, especially where children or entertainment is concerned.



Cancer - The New Moon in the 2nd House involves your self worth, personal possessions and finances. You may have a tendency to spend more on luxury items, entertainment or children now. This New Moon may indicate financial gain through children or speculation. Fun, games, and art are all tied to financial matters this lunar month.

Leo - With the New Moon in the 1st House, the focus is on you and your basic Leo personality. This lunar month you may be seen more for your creativity or your creations which could include children. You are the epitome of fun and entertainment. You are loved for your child-like exuberance and ability to "put on a show". There may be a tendency to come on too strong, so try to share the attention with others.

Virgo - Your Leo energy operates best behind the scenes or in secret. During this New Moon cycle in your 12th House you can receive love and gain from humility, compassion and understanding. Volunteer work may make you stand out. Personal sacrifices for children or "starving artists" would fit this energy. You have an innate ability to shine light on that which is hidden and this lunar month is a good time to gain through this insight.

Libra - The Leo New Moon happens in your 11th House of friends and future. This can be an excellent time to have fun with groups and organizations, especially those involved with performance, art, children, sports, games or gambling. You can establish new relationships through these people. New beginnings and your creativity are focused more on the future this lunar month.

Scorpio - The 10th House New Moon is about your honor and prestige. The Leo influence promises fame or notoriety through your creativity or your creations. This can mean you are looked up to for your art or some other creative outlet. It could also mean that children will play some important part in your honor, prestige or notoriety during this lunar month.

Sagittarius - You have Leo on the 9th House of your horoscope. This area of the chart has to do with expanding your horizons and getting out more. Travel and nature type experiences fit that kind of energy. With Leo here, it could also involve fun, recreation, creativity, entertainment or children. You may travel to a party or be involved in a party outdoors. Long distant or foreign children may be important. There may be some "gamble" concerning lawyers or in-laws.

Capricorn - Leo is on your 8th House, which is Scorpio in nature. In other words, the 8th House has to do with sex, death and rebirth experiences. It also has to do with sharing, joint possessions, other people's stuff, finances and inheritance. This is where your dark humor comes from. You can laugh about these things or at least see the humor and fun in death and sex.

Aquarius - Leo represents your opposite sign - your best partner, your best enemy! We all naturally attract our opposites. We need our opposites to become whole. This lunar month, it's all about relationships for you - and with Venus here it should be good. This could be a powerful time for finding balance, harmony and love from others. Your relationship with loved ones and children can be very enjoyable during this lunar month cycle.

Pisces - Leo is on your 6th House which is about service and health. This can be a very creative time to work, and you can put your heart into whatever you are doing. Love and gain come from serving others in the best way possible. Pets and the love of pets are accented now. Cats are ruled by Leo so you may deal with cats more over the lunar month.



Pisces Solar Eclipse March 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 Pisces.

Pisces is 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 reason.

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 real world. 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 12th.

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 September 2015.

Where Is The Solar Eclipse In Your Chart?

Wherever 29 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".

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".

Pisces Solar Eclipse

March 20 to September 12, 2015

Aries - 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 spiritual work.

Taurus - 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 friends.

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 time for inspiration, insight and spiritual enlightenment. Take note of your dreams and those magical, mystical trips you take in your sleep.

Leo - 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 co-dependency. 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 energy is 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 possible.






Uranus Square Pluto

The Uranus 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 2073.

Even though 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 "Obama Care"

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 square?

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 distances.

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 to you.

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 on".

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!

Frank Edge 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.
