You are happy star dust!
The Sun, Jupiter, South Node, Saturn, and Pluto are all gracing the sign of Capricorn! And its the week of a Solar Eclipse (new moon with sunglasses on!) at just past 4 degrees Capricorn. The Eclipse is Christmas night (PST).
YOU will take your holiday fun seriously, because Jupiter is hanging with this eclipse and Uranus (the planet that lovvvvesss surprises!) is trine it! BE HAPPY. IF you aren't, listen to this song:
Be Happy NOW
(don't you feel it???)
or this one:
OK? PLAY THEM OFTEN! You'll change your vibe in 4:03mins!
(and yes, I am aware that someone in that video wasn't so happy at the end of his life, but ... its still a great song!! )
And the theme song for the eclipse is:
Its just the law of the Universe at PLAY!
Ram Dass just flew over to the other-side...... and he will be sending thought waves to your dream time, so that you don't fear death- or change, coz he knows.... its all OK! I had to chuckle to myself when I saw that he'd crossed. Eclipse energy always bring the news of the big influencers shedding the body. The Planet or sign usually gives a clue to the category of who is about to make headlines because they flew the coop of the body. Jupiter rules spiritual teachers! Jupiter is conjunct this week's Solar Eclipse. Viola! Dass crosses! Who's next? The Pope?
We've seen lots of headlines about "LEADERS" (I use that term with a specific expression)....this past week. And we will see more- because its ALL JUST BEGUN TO be the last chapter of you know who!
SHOUT OUT- to Christianity Today- THANKS for calling a spade a spade!
Everyone needs to know what tool is being used, and who is using it. Don't be used by the spade digger, let him continue to dig his OWN grave. He will.
Btw, I think a subscription to CT for Christian friends is a great gift! Yes, I am aware they'd likely diss me for practicing astrology, EVEN thought the Three WISE MEN were ASTROLOGERS!!!This is lost on many people that mistakenly think the tool to make life smoother is somehow-"bad". Still, they did step up and speak out this week, and that is commendable!
Eclipses will shake up your world like no other event. They dig up and carve out new highways. Its up to you to get in the car and put the rubber to the pavement.
Planets don't make things happen- PEOPLE do, by their actions, but the planets are big spot lights pointing WHERE you MIGHT consider making some changes, and thus be happier. (time to listen to one of those songs!).
Venus is in Aquarius.... and all I have to say about that is- let's sing along:
Come on now, let's love each other!
I was lucky enough to meet Jesse Colin Young when I was a twenty something. He was playing in San Diego, and I was a groupie. Well, the goddess was with me, because in one of those very star-struck moments, (more ways than one!) the universe had a good chuckle with me. I was on a job interview. It was working on a ship restaurant, (might of been the Queen Mary, I honestly can't remember).. I walked in and waited to be interview and who did I see sitting at a table, but HIM. I was a wreck for that interview to finish, because I no longer wanted the job, I wanted to say hello to that voice! And I did! I don't think he noticed me more than two seconds, as there was another star struck female sitting by his side...........that voice...... we should listen to him! Love one another now!
Venus will stay in Aquarius until January 14th. Love for humanity is one of its greatest strengths. This is the perfect time (all time is perfect) to show that virtue!
On December 30th Mercury will join the line up of Capricorn. On the 1st, it will trigger the Solar Eclipse. INFORMATION-------- what was said when and by whom will hit the headlines again. In your own life, sign the dotted line with awareness. Finish the written project. If Santa missed something on your list- go get it for yourself! When the information planet triggers an eclipse it means that some new facts are presented to you, to aid in a choice.
The world enters a new decade- 2020 with Mars in the last degrees of Scorpio. 28'36".
That is the take no prisoners sign/degree. (almost @ 29). It's also the degree that creates magic. It is the mad scientist in the lab, trying one last thing- and BINGO.......a new cure. The final touches on a project that you've labored over, or the moment in meditation when it all vanishes into glorious empty vastness. This is concentrated energy- one pointed focus that brings a deeper level of understanding. When you ask who is the doer when I am one with the doing? Koan moment.
What is finished is finished. Not just the decade. Make the bad choices of the last ten years, something to learn from, and move on! Look to what you accomplished, and figure out why.
Maybe its as simple as- I survived.
In these first few days of the new year, new decade, make a list of what you wish to strive for. Make space for your emotional, physical, and mental goals. You'll get some help from the planets Saturn and Pluto when they merge on the 12th of Jan 2020. By then Mars will be in Sagittarius, (oh, be glad!) your actions can steer the rusty old bad habits to the dust bin. You'll have enough energy to move mountains, or at least hike over them. This combo of Saturn and Pluto is about how deep you want the well to go. In spiritual life we say- go inward- to the heart center, and practice staying there! Over and over and over again!
January 6th Uranus (shake it up) goes direct- and we will really begin to feel like a change is coming. And it is. Actually the mindset has been here. We are moving into a decade of progressiveness that will be much, much, * MUCH * more in tune with humanity. People are waking up! They are expanding their consciousness. The old ways are just hanging on by a thread, and they will be cut loose. You can't stay in the 1st grade forever! Uranus will make sure of that! How? By introducing to you new exciting adventures. Go ahead, I dare you- do something this month you've NEVER done! Something that takes you to beauty and love. Go some place you've never been and seek out what it is like to push yourself beyond where you are comfortable. Attempt to play a musical instrument, eat a food from a culture that you've never had, volunteer at a soup kitchen, or animal shelter. If you've not been to a museum- go to one, or three! There are a thousand ways you can push yourself to a new zone. Just try something different and see how it opens up your confidence and your eyes! Experience is the best teacher.
The planets are not here to punish you. They are beams of light to point the way for expansion. To trust that you are enough. You are divinity itself, seeking expression through a human form. Divine wants you to KNOW you are made of star dust! SHINE ! Spread goodness, love, compassion, and Happiness will be yours.
Remember, if you get stuck, (we all do) play those songs!
Magnificent 2020 to you!

America right now is in a fluke phase.
I thought it'd be nice to start off with a great song.
It's a reminder to me, that everything can be made alright, if we allow our perception to perceive differently.
Life is really magical.
And in-between-that magical maya we sometimes get a glance of, 'never expected this!'
Sometimes it is not so thrilling how the universe throws us a cartwheel in the middle of our life.
Sometimes it is down right grinning time!
Laughter heals no matter which you are experiencing at this moment in your very short journey to planet earth, spinning as it is, around the sun. That's really kind of crazy when you sit down and meditate on it! We are literally traveling a zillion miles a hour around a ball of fire, and we never ponder that. Or maybe you do.
There are so many things that show us the fluk-i-ness of the world.....(I just made up a word).
Who would have ever thought that our world would be on this very strange path?
What to do to stay sane?
Yes, I realize some people are content with how the movie is going. That is a fluke too!
To each their own.
I have given great thought to this passage that life has us traveling down in this country right now.
The one thought that comes to mind, is that it forces each and everyone of us, to dig deeper in our hearts to discover why we are here. And that my friend, is Pluto territory.
Pluto is like a snake shedding a skin. It reminds me of the story I read in Jack Kornfield's fabulous book, "After the Ecstasy, the Laundry." In it there is a story of a dragon removing his scales, as his bride removes her ten thousand wedding dresses. She and He both, are getting to the truth of who they are, allowing their beloved to truly see them. Only then, is a real marriage made. The same truth is in our relationship with the self. Only when we strip ourselves in honest nakedness, can we begin to grasp our true nature. Pluto aids with this process. The role of Pluto is to transform you, and sometimes this is not so fun. Yet, the end result is that we become who we are always meant to be, true to our very nature! Not living someone else's dream, or what the "world" expects us to be, but who we are.
I think of Freddie Mercury. And every person out there that has ticked to a different tok. Gone against society's rules, and been just who they are, unashamed, and unapologetic. Creative genius came through Freddie. We each have that inside us. He just wanted love and acceptance. That is what everyone wants at the core. LOVE. ACCEPTANCE.
Flipping the coin, when other people are behaving in ways that we do not understand or even remotely agree with, perhaps they are just being true to who they are meant to be. Even if we don't get it, or like it. Rather than pound our head against the wall at the insanity we see in the world, better to be true to who we are called to be. That might mean that their role of truthfulness causes you to respond to it, and then you find your calling! I'd title this- the never ending drama of divine. Everyone is playing a role. My role might be to be in opposition to your role. IF we are brave, we look behind the masks that people wear, and we try to touch the divine in them. It is in everyone. YOU can't be born without it. The divine spark is what gives you breath.
Pluto helps you discover the "part" you have been cast in. Has it changed and you didn't want it to? (get ready for suffering), or you surrender to the part given, five hundred percent, while you figure out how to dance in the new costume, that feels strange. All of this takes courage. It takes courage to be yourself. It takes courage to grow, discover a new you. To reach across the table to share a meal with someone who is playing a part you can't stand to watch. My solution is pay more attention to your own role, than theirs and your peace won't be lost. When you are zooming in on your purpose there is little room to waste bemoaning what someone else is doing.
Pluto and Saturn are in Capricorn, and on Dec 2nd Jupiter will join and make a trio. Boy, is the three act play going to get a jolt of dry humor! It will be up to you to discover it. Irony. Satire. Tragic and also comical. Write yourself a good story. Live it fully and deeply. Go for practical dreams. Capricorn likes to keep it real, and there are no heads in the clouds with these three planets in the earth sign. It is all about the EARTH. Mother EARTH. Dig in the ground and grow some root vegetables. Build a solid fortress, but make sure the moat has boats so you can have visitors, you'll want to have meetings. Promise! Discussions on how to save the firm, body, harvest, farm, and church (or temple) will be favorite subjects. Knees and how to make 'em last. Make sure you get enough sleep. These three planets in Capricorn are real workers, sleep is important.
Of all the signs, Capricorns will really go through massive changes in 2020. Some hard earned rewards are coming home to meet you, if you have put in the time, which of course you have!
Venus is also in Capricorn right now, until the 20th. That is blue chip quality in love. Slow, steady, and loyal. Made to last. That is something in today's world!
Loving Kindness to yourself and all beings. This is the greatest path to dealing with this ever changing, always a bit fluky to someone world.
Even with all these planets in Capricorn, which is about 'building' and getting to the top of the heap, an attempt to heap love on yourself and others is always a good plan.
I leave you with this song, one of my favorites:
ITS NOT ABOUT THE $$$
Giving Thanks today for enough. For you, my reader, and for the Stars.

Stand TALL in the Fall
Fall has begun in the Northern hemisphere. The leaves change colors, and drop to the ground before you can absorb their delightful colors. Leaves are just one example of what will be dropping away!
This autumn will witness the season of palatable change in governments worldwide. The last two weeks unleashed the triggering of two upcoming eclipses; on Christmas day, a Solar one, followed by a Lunar eclipse January 10th. The key word for eclipse energy is: CHANGE. Very often known as the tumbling of crowns. But let us not forget, shifting of the guard, or yanking the imbeciles out, sometimes is welcomed!
In the U.S.A. the Mars trigger of the eclipse points have launched an impeachment inquiry of the current occupant of the oval office, mega fires in California, the loss of beloved congressman Elijah Cummings, and it hasn't even squared Saturn or Pluto yet!
But what does this mean for you, when eclipses are triggered?
Each person has to look to their house placements (axis) to know where the spotlight will shine. Not every eclipse will be felt deeply by everyone. Thank the cosmos for that, because no one could handle a forever diet of excitement!
The cardinal signs will get the earthquake push to move in new directions. Libra, Capricorn, Aries, and Cancer. The areas stimulated can be marriage, home, standing in community, and your health. It is the "big" stuff that moves you ,or at least points toward where you can grow, aka- shed a skin. Preparing yourself for a new path, can be liberating, even while its stressful. Most living creatures do not relish change. They may long for it, without the work, or the disruptions it brings, while still keeping things locked into an old pattern that no longer fits. Many times you will find they really wanted to be fired, set free, or call a new state home; just not yet!!
As Mars moves through the sign of Libra, good questions to ask are: "How can I get my needs met, and also create harmony?" "Is being top of the heap worth the cost?" "What is the meaning of compromise for me?" "Is this a fair fight, and if not, what are my legal options?"
Mars in Libra is an intellectual battle, chess is played at a high level. You cannot mistake a friendly smile for a green light! Look to what is being documented via words, followed by action, etc, not the external features, which can be merely superficial.
Mars will square Saturn, (ruthlessness, but with finesse) on the 27th of October. That date is loaded, as it is also a new moon, in Scorpio at 5 degrees. This combo is particularly saber rattling. If you are creating a new life, or building a home with new copper pipes, don't cut corners. Attend to the work, even if it is arduous, striving for the achievement of perfection. This is a "working it" aspect! No room for lazy. The new moon will be in an EXACT opposition to Uranus, the unexplained one. Because with Uranus, it's not what you expect, and thus - the field of vastness is wide open to possibilities that never ever entered your rational mind. This is beyond mind.
Unexpected bonding and also freedom! Power partnerships that were never expected to form much less last. The stock market will be crazy. Stick your antenna out and see if you can pick up the next great investment.
Venus will be in Scorpio until November 1st. While the mysterious sign resides in the love and worth planet, make sure you secretly save the deepest love for yourself. Love starts with YOU and go outwards.
Investigate hidden ways you can establish pockets of gold! The tiny choices add up! Take care of your body with exotic massages, get a Tarot or Astrology reading, and leave love messages in your partners coat pockets! Savor the spicy moments of intimacy that happen with the tiniest of gestures.
On Halloween, Mercury stations retrograde until November 20th. You'll likely change your costume a couple of times! Tricks will be especially naughty! Treats will have a favor of the past. Old school wins the contest! Or any costume that "doubles" the ante. Twins, two faces, costumes that can travel back into the time machine, play on words costumes, that sort of energy is there. Make a plan A, and B, because it will be a wild night!
Brace yourself for what comes the first week in November. This is when Mars will square Pluto. The 5th of November is the grand slam date. Digging the depths of justice will come up against formidable power of resistance. This is a combo of planets that produces REVOLT. If you are cleaning up a toxic waste site or creating public art that makes a splash of a statement you'll welcome it. Otherwise, work out, drive careful, and keep your plans top secret until the precise moment of execution. There is no turning back with this one, so plan with the surgeon's steady hand. This is a practice run, to see how you will deal with the January merge of Saturn and Pluto. Yes, Mars is different than Saturn, but both planets don't smile while they make their mark. Think of this month and December as preparation for the cement that is going to be poured in some area of your life. What area? Where ever Capricorn/ Cancer axis falls in your birth chart. Where do you wish to make permanent transformation? That is the area to focus on with minutiae detail.
Heavy? You have no idea how insanely things are going to change, and Scorpio season likes to keep the mystery going. Gather the leaves that fall, cherish their beauty, it will fade, and become compost for the next cycle.
All that we endure in these challenging times will turn us into trees that stand tall all year long.
All Hallows Eve delight to you ! May the veil be lifted!

Check the List
Virgo is dominating the sky right now! What does Virgo stand for? Being the best you can be. Covering your bases. Details. The finer energies that add the accent of thoroughness.
Right now, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars create a chain link fence, that won't let you cross to the lovely flower field, until you do your homework!
You know where you need to clean up your act, before you take it on the road!
In the next weeks, we will have many chances to perfect ourselves, but watch for over doing. Today, Mars squares Jupiter. That aspect gives you the confidence to do the impossible job. It is super ego- energy. Mars throwing gasoline on an already high flame. This is the athletic energy that you'd want to win the Gold. But, with the two planets in a 90 degree square, you need to use caution. So often when we are super sure of ourselves, we forget to tie the shoe lace double, so that it can't possibly come untied. It is also at time when we can underestimate our opponents. At this time, your BIGGEST threat is arrogance.
On Sept. 14th, Mars will oppose Neptune. This combo gives way to idealism. It is excellent for further your beliefs. It is fantastic for blending the micro with the macro. Seeing the raindrop in the ocean. Holistic viewing is the ability to see the vastness in a grain of sand. What is the mountain? It is ten zillion grains of sand! So pull back your zoom lens and see the bigger picture being presented to you in your life. Work on dissolving your ego enough to discover new compassion. Dance with the single note held long and full, instead of the entire composition! And then do the reverse.
By Sept 18th, the taskmaster planet, Saturn, will station DIRECT! Saturn rules our bones, teeth, our posture, our responsibilities in the life. It also rules how we 'end' things. Look to the placement of your birth Saturn to discover the ways you can end well. It also rules our legacy. You create your legacy every day of your life. Make good choices! Saturn is holding hands with Pluto for many months to come, and these two planets ingrain a trench that is deep and long lasting. Make your habits healthy. Contribute to things that reflect your value system. Plant trees! Later, the fruit will appear.
Jupiter in Sagittarius will square Neptune in Pisces one last time (in these signs) on the 21 of Sept.
The very large planet questioning the unseen, never ending galaxy..... It may feel like there is so many places to land, that you can't decide ANY place to set up office! The forever wandering soul, gets lost in nothingness. Nicolas Rouge's "The Walkabout" might be a good film to see. Robyn Davidson's "TRACKS: A Woman's Solo Trek across 1700 Miles of Australian Outback" - is a great read for this transit! Any inspirational film, book, story, image, that invites the soul to find itself, and thus the all..... This is not shallow time, this is the time to explore beyond what you can imagine for yourself.
Australia is a great example of this Jupiter sq Neptune energy. It is a Capricorn Sun -Saturn Country, with Venus, Uranus, Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron, and the north node in Sag! Talk about conflicting energy! It's WIDE OPEN, but needs a good Captain to channel all that fire! They will experience their Jupiter return this year, so a new path will be carved with education, immigration, and trade. How to know when to open the doors, and when to sail without any? That is the question that Jupiter sq Neptune asks you.
Friday the 13th will grace our sky with a full moon at 22 Pisces. This will exasperate the T-Square (crow bar) that is in action for the next weeks. Use this powerful vibration to bring to clarity what is truly your goals. Let go of what is taking up wasted space; unused, worn out-things, thoughts ! Make clear where you wish to navigate. Set your compass, prepare to travel to new regions. Use the T-Square to develop your dreams, with much effort. Elbow grease in abundance.
Mabon (Autumn Equinox) arrives 12:51am PDT on the 23rd.
You can throw away your list by then, and begin to harvest the rewards that are well earned!

Merry go round
Things, aka the world, has been a bit crazy for a while now. We are in lots of Leo energy with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars all lined up for fun making. However, it has not felt fun, unless you are living on a deserted Island. We have seen the under belly of Leo energy, which is a strong dominate energy, with big ego. The truth is we can all tune into the the child like playfulness of Leo, without tapping into the other vibration of lesser desire.
We are on a bit of a Merry-Go-Round and the Lunar Eclipse of January 20th 2019 is being revisited. This time by Mercury. Mercury has triggered this point two times this Summer. June 26th, July 18th, and today, August 11th. What that means for you is that where ever the Lunar Eclipse fell in your birth chart, it is now being re-triggered for manifestation of ideas, projects, plans, and desires that might of been awakened in you during the Eclipse. Please note- lunar eclipses are FULL MOONS which the 'light' is blocked. So what they promise, foretell, or FOREWARN, require deeper insight than just going about "business as usual". It's not. The universe ask that you participate in your future, not just sit back and watch the show; you help create it as well- through your actions.
Full Moons are also about clearing house, letting go, and moving on. Just like Jeffery Epstein just did. He was born on January 20th, so the Lunar Eclipse hit his Sun, and his karma caught up to him, as it is programmed to do. He checked out, instead of facing his actions. You cannot hide from karma.
Eclipses do not bring 'bad' stuff to us, they bring what we need to go higher in the spiritual sense. They raise the bar, and if you can learn to grow, and fight your demons, you create a new life for yourself!
Speaking of Eclipses- and the triggering of them..... the woozy dozy Total one of Aug 2017 is about to be smacked on the 18th of Aug. As I stated earlier, this one will hit the Orange slime's Rising degree. His actions are coming home to roost. All of America will deal with this one. Buckle up.
Today is especially exciting as the planet of long distant travel, Jupiter- is stationing DIRECT- so that means you can further your search for the truth. Jupiter is making a wink to all that Leo energy right now, so go have some playtime, and don't worry about things you can not control. The one thing you can control is your mind's drama. Keep it simple and just attempt to line yourself up with the divine light and let it shine though you. If you can travel to distant lands, all the better!
Later tonight, Uranus moves RETROGRADE for several months! So take that love you have for all, and remember to give some to yourself. Uranus rules airplanes, electric energy, computers, inventors, and the magical psychic energy force that surrounds your every breath. When Uranus goes (or appears to, but does not in reality) retrograde its the perfect time to time travel back to your center. The place that never changes- your spirit self. Inhale, Exhale, repeat- until you are calm. Rework some of your original ideas. Test them out. Such as, being friendly to every spirit you meet! Like the spirit energy that is within them- connect to the unseen vibration that is the same in every-single- thing! Of course you can take your computer apart and put it back together as well- confirm how smart you are.
This week, on the 13th we have a lovely conjunction of the Sun (I AM) to Venus (I love) at 21 degrees Leo.
Perfect time to get married! To yourself, another, the divine source, or any sort of linkage that brings joy for you and another.
But, by the 15th we have a full moon in Aquarius, so if you do marry in haste, you might discover something about your newly discovered love that you hadn't known in advance!
This full moon is great for defining the role you wish to play in any group settings. Reach out and discover what you don't know that you don't know! Aquarius really loves to join hands with everyone, the circle won't be broken, even in a full moon! Light is shed, for you to SEE. It's about learning how to be an individual within a group. Finding the oneness in the many. This Full Moon is on America's moon. The Moon rules the female, food, the home, security, comfort. When it is the sign of Aquarius boundaries are tested. The roles for Women are reaching FAR beyond what was in the past. Men who prefer the old ways, will need to catch up to the times. This is an extremely progressive moon placement. We won't go back, so if you want it to be the 1800's you are out of luck.
FORWARD- FULL SPEED.
Truth is-there is no backward or forward motion- there is only now. And the more you can stay in this NOW, the more you will enjoy the ride. Where are you- NOW? Where are you NOW? Where are you NOW? Inhale, exhale. Has NOW changed? Now never leaves- your thought does.
Train your mind and you can stay centered, as the merry-go-round moves in the now.

Media Blackout the HATE
A bit over the top crazy I'd say. What's going on? Mars is moving to co-join the total solar eclipse point. Remember that one? The one that went across the divide of America? Yes. That means it 'triggers' what is possible in America right now. Mars is tied to violence, and anger not just action. And this point- 29 Leo, is the OrangeSlime's Rising sign. He can fuel the hate, or shut up. Which do you think he is prone to do? What does his history show? And the most important question- What can we do about it? CALL YOUR REPS! Encourage a media BLACKOUT of the hateful words coming out of his mouth. Get busy, the month is early and we still have over three weeks until the exact trigger moment. Encourage people to put down their weapons.
