New Moon January 20, 2015 to February 18, 2015

The New Moon on January 20, 2015 occurs at the zero degree of Aquarius. The New Moon will bring out the qualities and symbolism of Aquarius for the following Lunar Month cycle.

 Aquarius is the Sign of groups, organizations, friends and all forms of networking. It is the Sign of change and is about science, technology, electronics, the future and everything that is new and modern. It is the progressives and the rebels who want to change the system. It rules earthquakes and earth changes. It wants things to be different. During this cycle, increased activities and new beginnings  should involve these things on a personal level and in the lives of those around you. Computers are accented, especially concerning networks and the internet. In the body, Aquarius rules the lower legs, ankles and the neurological systems  and networks in the body - like the nervous system and circulation of the blood.

Uranus: Ruler of Aquarius

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. The Uranian/Aquarian symbolism has been infused with the high energy of Aries since March 11, 2011. This was the day that Uranus entered Aries. It was also the day of the Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami. We are likely to see more devastating or unexpected earth changes before Uranus moves out of Aries in May 2018. Meanwhile, Aquarians should feel this extra boost of energy in their own lives.

Uranus began its 7 year transit through Aries at the beginning of what came to be called, "The Arab Spring". This was when several North African Arab countries experienced revolutions. It hasn't stopped, as we are still seeing it in Egypt, Syria, Iraq and other Islamic countries. This could bring about more violence from rebel fundamentalist groups like Al Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram.

On a more positive note, Aries is the Sign of power, speed and energy. Uranus and Aquarius are about technology, science and electricity. There could be advances in alternative energy sources or even the perfection of the electric battery. Speed barriers might be broken, or the Large Hadron Collider in Europe may make new discoveries by crashing tiny bits together at very high speeds. There are many ways science and technology can benefit through this combination.

Where is the New Moon in Your Horoscope?

A New Moon cycle starts on the New Moon and lasts until the next New Moon. This cycle is known as the Lunar Month and is good for "new beginnings" and activities that relate to the Sign. This Aquarian New Moon will influence our lives until the Pisces New Moon on February 18, 2015. Each of us will feel the influences of the New Moon in the area of the chart in which it occurs. Its position in your horoscope each month shows in some symbolic way what area of life to look for the most activity and where to plant the symbolic "seeds" for future 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 use your Ascendant (if you know it) 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.

Leo - The New Moon in your Aquarius 7th House is all about your relationships with others. It has to do with opponents, as well as, partners and complimentary opposites. This area encompasses best friends, best lovers and "best" enemies. Because it is your opposite Sign, your relations with these people are Aquarian in nature. In other words, during this Aquarius Lunar Month you are likely to socialize with, or attract people through friends and through your partner. They may be involved in things like technology, electronics, astrology and computers. Other people in your life can help you reach your future goals through networking and group involvement. Friends are very important to Leos. They help to make Leos whole.


Virgo - The 6th House is your Aquarius House. This area of the chart relates to health and service type activities. It's about those who serve and those who are served.

Aquarius - This is your time of the year as the Sun moves through your 1st House. You are inspired to come out and be more sociable. It is time for you to begin new activities relating to groups, organizations or friends. Networking is essential for Aquarians, so the internet provides a technological method, but the old fashioned way may be part of this as well. Networking in the neighborhood or community or with "car" people or educators. The 3rd House Uranus influence suggests changes or excitement involving communication, education or transportation.

 Scorpio Solar Eclipse

October 23, 2014 to  March 20 2015

On October 23rd the Sun and Moon come together at 0 degrees 25 minutes of Scorpio to create the second Solar Eclipse of 2014. If you are born close to this date or have important points in your horoscope around this degree, you will feel its effects more intensely. As with any Solar Eclipse, its astrological effects will begin to "kick in" around the full moon two weeks before the actual eclipse. Its effects will be felt for about 6 months. That puts the beginning of this Solar Eclipse cycle on October 8th, and it will last until the Pisces Solar Eclipse on March 20, 2015.

The Last Scorpio Eclipse Cycle

This is the last of the Scorpio Solar Eclipse cycles for a while. There has been a Solar Eclipse in the Sign Scorpio every year for the last three years. Saturn has also been moving through Scorpio since Oct 5, 2012. This means that we have all been more involved in Scorpio symbolism in our lives especially during the fall and winters of 2012, 2013 and 2014. In a general way, we have all been dealing with  a period of transformation. We are coming to an end of a 21/2 year Saturn cycle that coincides with this last Solar Eclipse cycle.

Most people will feel these Scorpio energies in a very personal way and others will project it and see it through friends and family. Scorpio has to do with the death and rebirth symbolism. It is the Sign of "sex, death and taxes". Symbolically, "sex" is about joining together with someone else and producing a "win/win" situation. Procreation being a big part of the power of Scorpio. "Death" and rebirth brings in the power to take something old or broken and fix it. Doctors, surgeons, mechanics and anyone who fixes things have this Scorpio power. "Taxes" symbolizes our shared financial responsibilities to others. This includes all financial institutions like banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies, the IRS, etc.

This Scorpio Eclipse cycles brings about deep, powerful, intense changes that can take us to emotional extremes. It can bring us closer to some kind of life and death experience - either real or symbolic. Financial changes, inheritance, joint finances, taxes and shared resources are all tied to this 2 1/2 year Saturn in Scorpio cycle. This is a good time to get straight with the IRS or with other financial responsibilities. This can also be a great time to refurbish or restore something broken or "dead".

Scorpio Solar Eclipse Conjunct Venus

This Scorpio Solar Eclipse adds a special twist due to it's conjunction with Venus. Venus rules Taurus and Libra and is about attraction and accumulation. Through Taurus, Venus attracts money, luxuries and valuable possessions, Through Libra, it attracts people, relationships and love. Scorpio can encourage a time to join together with others and collaborate on joint concerns. The Venus influence can bring about beautiful transformations.  Gain through restoration and rehabilitation. This can be beneficial for dealing with psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors in general. Financial counseling is more positive now and can transform your life. Always remembering that Scorpio is not necessarily easy. It requires a transformation (death and rebirth) and needs a true commitment. Now, over the next 6 months, is the time to join together in collaboration or cut ties completely.

The Next 6 Months

As we move into the Scorpio Solar Eclipse cycle, we will begin to feel its north node (Dharmic) effects in the Sign Scorpio. For some, this gives the opportunity to transform some area of life - a sort of death and rebirth phase in our lives. Some part of our life needs to be fixed, and now is the time to fix it or let it go completely. It can mean dealing with the death of someone or something, but it will most likely be symbolic. For many, it will involve inheritance type experiences. Financial institutions like banks, insurance companies and the IRS represent the Scorpio symbolism and may play a part in some personal transformation.

This Scorpio Solar Eclipse indicates the end of the previous Taurus Solar Eclipse cycle that represented the power and pain of new growth, accumulation and personal re-evaluation. This Scorpio Eclipse cycle begins a new 6 month cycle of financial and personal wheeling and dealing. This Scorpio Solar Eclipse gives the opportunity for growth through "endings" or new shared or joint experiences. It's time to let go or "get on board".

Where is this Scorpio Eclipse in Your Horoscope?

Solar Eclipse cycles generally last about 6 months. This Scorpio Solar Eclipse will influence our lives until the next Solar Eclipse in Pisces on March 20, 2015. Each of us will feel its effect in the area of our horoscope in which it occurs. Its position in your chart shows in some symbolic way what area of life needs some adjustment or transformation.

ARIES - You have Scorpio on your 8th House cusp. This area of the horoscope has to do with secrets, financial wheeling and dealing, other people's resources and all death and rebirth symbolism. The 8th House rules over sharing and joining resources with others. It covers things like sex, death, taxes, inheritances and all financial institutions. When you add the meaning of the Scorpio Solar Eclipse, you can experience transformation through a death and rebirth symbolism. You may have to deal with possessions or inheritance of other people. It could be a time to let go or end some deal that involves inheritance, banks, insurance or taxes. You could sell something that involves joint ownership. This can also be a more psychic time in your life and the eclipse may tend to stir up highly karmic conditions.

TAURUS - The Scorpio Solar Eclipse is in your 7th House and is all about relationships and partners for the next 6 months or so. This may be good for dealing with professional sales people, as long as everything is "by the book".

It may be that you work at some research or repair type job. You may be a counselor or therapist. You could work in insurance, banking or some other financial institution. These type things are likely to be accented in the "work/service" arena. Maybe you'll just use restaurants and other places of "service" to engage in counseling or business meetings with others more during this 6 month eclipse cycle. You may work with businesses that are tied to Scorpio type things like death, resale, restoration, the "underground", mysteries, or some kind of detective work. The work you do and those you meet through work will bring the greatest transformations through March 20, 2015.


CANCER - Like you, Scorpio is a Water Sign and it falls on your 5th House cusp. This area of the chart symbolizes the child of the mind as well as the child of the body. This Solar Eclipse may provide you with some needed transformation where your creativity is concerned. For some, it could mean the news of other people's children and pregnancies. It could be inspiration to do something in life that is dramatic, instructive and transformative. The 5th House Scorpio vibration is tied to the creative expression and other people. It's natural for a Cancer to express their artistic or creative side in an emotional outlet. This could involve entertaining others in a sensitive emotional way like through music, poetry or song. Fun, recreation, creativity, gambling, speculation and children are tied to sharing. Joining with children can be a very powerful, positive, transformational time that will last until March 20, 2015.

LEO - You have Scorpio ruling your 4th House, and therefore you project its symbolism to the "mother" side of life. This has to with the home, real estate and everything domestic. You may buy, sell or transform your home. You may see your mother (or parent figure) involved in Scorpio type things like death and rebirth, transformation, sharing and other people's resources. She may be involved with counselors, therapists or psychics. This parent could be involved in financial institutions, insurance or buying and selling. Family or parent's possessions could be more important to you now. They may be tied to your ability to share. Some transformational or death and rebirth type of energy is now influencing this area of your life until March 20, 2015. You need to share your family or your "home base". In some symbolic way, you may say goodbye to the security of the home or the "mother".

VIRGO - Scorpio rules your 3rd House which is Gemini in nature. Joining or sharing resources with sisters, brothers or neighbors is more important now. You have something "shared" in common. With the Solar Eclipse here, the people "closest" are crucial in your life for some reason. You have 6 months to take care of it. Transform, make a deal or let go. Counseling is a Scorpio trait and may be tied to these people who are "close" to you. During this eclipse cycle you may deal more with the local money people, like bankers, insurance, taxation, etc. You are likely to hear of a death that is close, like in the extended family or in the neighborhood. It may be the "death" of a vehicle. The Scorpio influence is directed toward your community and those who are close, like best friends. These people could be going through intense emotional stuff - sex, scandal, manipulation or dealing with death are possibilities. Sharing with others can be cathartic.

LIBRA - The Scorpio Eclipse in your 2nd House puts the emphasis on shared finances, shared possessions and shared purchases. Are you ready to join completely or cut some valuable ties? This interaction represents a very karmic connection. This can be a great time to collaborate with someone. You are an expert at gaining through other people's resources, but sharing is the key. Your personal worth and basic values are tied to your ability to share. You can make money through trade, barter, other people's possessions and joint ventures. You could gain from financial institutions, taxes or insurance. You can benefit through death and rebirth symbolism like restoration or repairing. You can even gain from the goods of the dead like inheritance or antiquity. With the Solar Eclipse here in the 2nd House, significant opportunities for financial growth and transformation are likely through March 20, 2015.

SCORPIO - This eclipse energy is all about your Sign, and therefore brings with it a 1st House symbolism which is everything that is most personal to you. During this Solar Eclipse cycle, you are likely to experience a personal transformation of some kind. This may involve someone very close to you. It may involve the two opposing sides of Scorpio symbolism. That of joining, sharing and becoming one with another person. At the same time, you might be ending some chapter in your life and beginning a new one. It may have to do with sharing and could be part of this transition. You could be significantly affected by this eclipse, or you could be an instrument for spreading some of this transformational energy out to others. You are seen more as the counselor, the banker or the detective.

SAGITTARIUS - The Scorpio Solar Eclipse is in your 12th house which has to do with personal humility, compassion, self sacrifice, and to some extent, the spiritual world. Other people's work, health or pets may also play a part in this 6 month cycle that begins on October 23, 2014 and lasts until March 20, 2015. Your inner guides are activated by this eclipse. This is a time to deal more with the spiritual side. Your dream state and psychic abilities are very powerful now. Your personal karma is at work. It involves close emotional relationships with others. Scorpio people in your life will be accented. If these people and their issues have not been dealt with properly, they are likely to come back to haunt you. But at the same time, your "guardian angel" is there to help guide you through the storm. You need to be sensitive to things pertaining to other people's problems and its a good time to volunteer or visit someone in the hospital.

CAPRICORN - The Scorpio Solar Eclipse will stir things up in your 11th House until the next Solar Eclipse on March 20, 2015. The 11th House is traditionally known as "groups, organizations and friends" along with "hopes and wishes for the future". It encompasses New Age philosophy, astrology, and all science, technology and networks. When combined with the Scorpio Solar Eclipse, it has to do with future plans concerning joint ownership or shared resources. Some of these plans for the future may relate to death and rebirth symbolism. Friends may undergo intense transformational (death) experiences on their own. A friend may require counseling or could be a counselor for you. Financial and other Interpersonal relationships with friends are important. Some personal transformation could occur due to groups, organizations or friends.

AQUARIUS - In the 10th House of the chart, the Scorpio Eclipse emphasizes honor, prestige and career. This can be a positive time if you are ambitious and have been following the rules. It can be a time of powerful transformation and career opportunities. Honor and prestige may come from your ability to transcend or transform. Your ability to counsel, to discover things that are hidden and to govern others may increase your notoriety or somehow put you in the limelight. You may take on responsibility for people's problems. Avoid illegal activities with others. If you've worked hard and followed the rules in the past, then this can be a time for accolades and honor. If you've taken shortcuts or have been dishonorable, then this eclipse cycle can help to balance your Karma.

PISCES - The Scorpio Solar Eclipse happens in your 9th House, and therefore can bring a deep transformation to your higher, more philosophical side of life. This could involve changes to your religion, your politics or your attitude toward the legal system. For Pisces, this area of the chart combines all Scorpio things with 9th House symbolism like education, long distances, lawyers, in-laws, foreigners and grandchildren. The eclipse suggests something very powerful or fated is happening and it might require traveling with someone else or sharing with foreigners. Travel might involve inheritance, shared resources or other people's possessions. Long distance or legal financial stuff is possible. You might experience a symbolic death and rebirth through in-laws, lawyers, religious or political leaders.





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 happens to be Monday, December 15, 2014.

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.

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".

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.
