Clear skies will come
Today, November 7th, at 11:25 am EST the Associated Press announced Biden/Harris had won Pennsylvania and THAT put them over the 270 Electoral College threshold.
History was made, by MILLIONS of AMERICANS casting their votes to elect the first female Vice-President!!!!!!!! History was made by the largest voting turn out in our history!!! History was made by the most votes that an elected presidential team has ever received.
THANK YOU AMERICANS- for exercising your divine right- by voting in fair and free elections!
The official count is still being done, it is possible that Biden/Harris, also gain Georgia.
Biden turns 78 on November 20th. He is a Sun Scorpio, like me, my birthday follows his. I can attest to the strength that Scorpio has - the sign has endurance! Biden will be a good leader, working hard with others to get us back on track to being a "united" America. His chart has a stellium in Scorpio in the 12th house, where he does his healing; behind the camera, out of sight, engaged with others at the round table. He has a Sagittarius rising, so our standing in the world will certainly get on better footing. We know it will, as Biden has the combination for that success; he is kind, and strong. He has relationships with world leaders that open doors not close them. Our allies will no longer be confused, and wonder if they are in fact a friend!
Harris is a justice seeking Libra Sun, with a fiery Aries Moon. She is no shrinking violet, and she sure does have a lovely smile! I welcome that joyful face, after hearing an angry leader screaming ugly things at the American people for four long years-EVERYDAY. She is an excellent communicator, with a Gemini rising, so she will be very effective in getting to the truth of what needs to be repaired in America. Mercury in her chart is in investigative Scorpio.
Now that the American voters have declared their wishes, let us begin the hard work ahead. And it is hard work to get control of a pandemic and recover businesses and lives. Joe will not be playing golf, he will be planning with top notch world class scientists, and medical field experts to secure a vaccine that is SAFE and affordable for all. Scorpio rules rebirth/transformation, the sign is ruthless in uncovering survival needs and acquiring them.
It is not all clear skies just yet. We have a big storm cloud named 45. He won't accept reality. He makes losing seem like the end of the world, (to him it is) and it will certainly be the end of a world he has become used to. He is addicted to 'attention' and chaos. I doubt he'll stop his rallies; he'll give them a new cause or form. 45 will make losing more dramatic than necessary. He will throw tantrums. He will not go gracefully; he doesn't seem to do anything with grace, certainly not accepting rejection. The pattern so far, in his life, and in his presidency, is to seek revenge.
The next week will likely be the most difficult behavior we will witness. By the time the new moon in Scorpio shows up, on November 15, the dye will be cast. There will still be words, and skirmish, but our democracy is intact! Mars stations direct on November 14th, and the efforts to get on with the plans of our NEW PATH, will be firmly set in motion. That is not to say that 45 will accept that the American people have spoken. Unless the GOP pressures him to shut up his lies, he'll likely attempt to start a civil war. He will not be successful. His stars are waning; it is time for him to begin packing for the upcoming move. I wouldn't even be surprised if he did not greet the new president, as is customary. He might be working on getting a 'pardon' in some twisted way. One thing you can be sure of, he's working on what is best FOR HIM, and his personal legal issues. He will be concerned about his "legacy" from the 15th of November on. He'll do as many favors as possible for friends. If he is not careful, he could land in the hospital again. If he doesn't get therapy to deal with this tremendous loss, (and you know- he won't) it could manifest as an illness, because he internalizes the deep pain, with no forgiveness.
At the end of the month, on the 30th, we have a Lunar Eclipse (full moon with moon-glasses on) at 9 degrees Gemini. Communication just got extremely important! This is an opportunity to examine how you process information, what data really means for/to you, and how you can create a shift in mind set by investigating what "empowers" you. Putting what you discover into action.
This year, Thanksgiving will be shared in an entirely new way. We can Zoom, and we can bless our loved ones by not compromising their health or ours by taking undue risks. The Covid-19 virus will tend to be very active during this month when temperatures drop, and flu season sets in. So please give yourself the biggest "thanks" by attending to your physical well being, and using super precautions in how you gather with loved ones.
Neptune turns direct on the 28th and since it rules the virus, we just might finally see some breakthroughs to a vaccine!
Mask-up and celebrate life longer!
Happy Thanks Giving to you and yours!

Bolt down and hold tight
The RED ZONE.
It is closer than you think. Tread carefully.
On Oct 9th Mars will Square Pluto.
Mars is currently retrograde in Aries.
Pluto is in Capricorn.
They don't see eye to eye right now. AT ALL.
Mars represents the need to assert the individual needs. Pluto is the sub-conscious and also the government. Right now- 45 is sick. He has covid-19 and isn't happy about not being on stage yelling about everything he yells about. He is in manic land and it is very likely he could end up back in the hospital, if he is not careful he could die. This is the real REALITY. Nothing fake about Pluto.
Mars square Pluto is a big sign that we are in a dangerous time. Watch your anger. Find a proper place for it. It is a great aspect for wiping out- anything and everything. The clutter in your garage, the house that you want to demolish and rebuild, that big operation that removes all the bad stuff. What ever you do- DON'T drive while angry. It won't end well. Replant the garden. Start over with the diet plan. Clean out the freezer. Watch Godfather I and II.... and any other Gangster film you can find.
This is a "Take no Prisoners" aspect.
Also on the 9th we have a quarter Moon - at 18 Cancer squaring the Libra Sun. Issues of Security, and Justice. This is not favorable to 45's chart at all. He is in a very difficult period. Resigning is not out of the picture; I have said it for MONTHS.
For you and me----- stay away from people who you don't get on with....(more than six feet- stay away means - ignore them-you live on another planet from them).
We are in changing times, and some people do not do well with changes that don't favor their views.
This is also an EARTHQUAKE (MEGA) aspect.
Mercury @ 12 degrees Scorpio turns RETROGRADE on Oct 13th until November 3rd. (yep!)
Don't forget to VOTE! (I know you won't). Before the 13th if your State allows.
This is one for the history books. The election, the year, the month.
The next two weeks are going to be crazy and frustrating. On the 19th, Mars will square Saturn- again. Find something hard to do, and pour yourself into it. Don't expect to win, do well, or even like it- just use up the energy instead of being used by it. Apply yourself with great determination to all that you do, just don't 'expect' any results from it. This doesn't mean they won't be forthcoming, it means don't set yourself up for disappointment. JUST APPLY your energy toward something GOOD.
2020 is the year "NEVER to be FORGOTTEN". And October is the MONTH that will be seared in your memory as one explosive, strange as hell~ time frame, that brings it all to a boiling point.
When you need a laugh... think of that FLY on Pence's white hair. You know, the MOMENT- you knew it was over for the chaos party.
Wait for the green light; no speeding.

The butterfly and the spider
Gross? It is nature. All of life eats other life.
This was a first for me, seeing a butterfly paralyzed by a green striped insect with eight limbs. Wings verses plotting legs; Carpe Diem!
It is a fitting image for the times.
This month will see brain cells being challenged by choreography that is cunning, taking no prisoners, and cause you to freeze with fear. Well now! You'll just have to call on Mars energy, and fight until the death, or surrender to your fate.
Yes, it is that sort of month.
I am not one to pretend that things are "just fine" when in fact- it's a battle ground out there. It is only all good if you have strong Aries in your chart and you love to fight, and of course win.
That doesn't mean we will give in. But like that lovely yellow butterfly, we will TRANSFORM, and TRANSCEND.
The spider represents the cycle of life and so does the butterfly. One thing ends, and another begins. We weave a circle that others will get caught in. Sometimes this brings us dinner, other times the design doesn't quite do its job. But the fact is, both the butterfly and the spider are part of this vast creation, each having a role to play. Each having needs, that sometimes get met, and other times not.
The point is to keep creating, regardless if you ARE dinner or consume nourishment at the expense of another. Just make it fair. Play fair, and pay attention to your surroundings.
Mercury is in Libra until the 28th of the month. This is the time to use your intellectual savvy, and make moves that further your journey. They will be hard won, as Mercury will face blocks and detours. This does not mean you have selected the wrong path. Like the spider, dinner may be a feast that ends up tying you to the table, unable to move, and enjoy what you have fought to gain. It will be a "mixed blessings" sort of month.
First and foremost- you must guard your health. Without health, you have nothing!
Mercury will oppose Chiron on Sept. 10th. The data on how the Labor Day gatherings contribute to the numbers-(in the middle of a pandemic)- will begin to flow in. For the non-believers, I have zero to say, because, the best teacher is direct experience, that and ICU. A simple act of three things can save lives, fact is- many people on this planet are too damn lazy to care about others, and they prefer denial. You can't change them, only they can transform themselves, and their selfish behavior.
In this order- the swords will fly:
Sept 17th- Mercury squares Jupiter
Sept 21st- Mercury squares Pluto
Sept 23rd- Mercury squares Saturn
Sept 25th- Mercury opposes Mars (which turns retrograde on the 9th of Sept).
So, yes, by the third week in Sept. full on war zone feeling.
How to use all this energy in a positive way?
Give yourself a task that demands you OPEN your mind, in some form or fashion that is NEW to you. Engage is getting rid of destructive thinking, build communication skills that allow you to hear grievances, without reacting. Clear out the cobwebs in your mind, to how you "wish it were"- and look clearly at reality as it is, and get busy problem solving. That is what squares are all about- finding the solutions to issues that come up.
Since Mercury is in Libra, and Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn, are all in Capricorn- there is going to be organisational efforts to combat authoritarian law. The dictator and the autocrat are in for a huge push back against those who wish for democracy.
PUTIN WILL BE IN THE HEADLINES.
World wide- those places that have rulers who do not listen to the will of the people will be shocked at the resistance.
45's relationship with Putin will come to haunt him. He clearly wishes to rule like him, and it will be his downfall. He will fall. He will fail.
I still believe he will end up resigning. But first he will create hell. That's his role; Destroyer.
Try not to get caught up in the game of 'convincing' his followers otherwise. It is a waste of your precious time. They are playing their role, as well.
IF you stop and think about how much light has been shed by his darkness, by his web of haters, and lies, you come to realize, that like the butterfly caught in the trap set by the spider, you might be unable to move right now- but you will drop the butterfly body, (innocence) and become wiser- in the state of all knowing consciousnesses. That state doesn't need a body. In that state you are free. In that freedom, the real changes that will take place after the worn out ways are made dust, and swept way.
The spider is the symbol of creating a new life, but first there is the struggle.
On the 17th of Sept. there is a new moon at 25 degrees Virgo.
The harvest is coming, but first we must chaff the wheat.

C'est la vie!
It is important that you write your representatives if you are unhappy (or happy) with how things are going. We are ALL on a learning curve. It may feel very uncertain right now, and that usually makes people jumpy. However, I am here to tell you, that all that is going on has a deeper meaning. It is a freeze frame of what was- is no more, and therefore the adults in the room need to brain storm and the antenna that is never down, will put you back on track! Granted a NEW track, because the old train is rusty and worn out- and I am starting to think that "SOMEONE" (45) REALLY wants to be an actor not a leader! The drama coming out of Pennsylvania Ave is competing for soap opera of the century!
The astrology clearly shows that government has reached a huge stumbling block...its own wall of lack of understanding. Right now the planet Mars is in Aries (and will be until Jan 2021) and it is about to create a series of squares (90 degrees) to the planets Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto! This is power struggle and the hard work of moving the impossible. PLUS, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all retrograde! Look to the past, and learn something about how you dig yourself out of a pandemic! It isn't by denial. We've been here before- 1918.
August 4th is the first square in this series. Mars will square Jupiter - that's when over reach of the Military would be a VERY bad thing indeed. It is also when you need to curb your anger into productivity. It is super powerful- as in 'Super-Quake" energy. Also during this first week of August the Lunar Eclipse that was in January of 2020, will be triggered- all month! This is especially important for Los Angeles, because our birth Mars is at 18 Capricorn and is also being squared by Mars, and conjunct by Jupiter. The only MASS thing that NEEDS to happen is TESTING; followed by TRACKING.
The second week of August will see a Mars square Pluto on the 13th. This can indicate a flare up of WAR. Also it is digging to the transformation that must happen for new invention to manifest. Many heads will be rolling down the mountain. This powerful mover and shaker is followed by Uranus turning retrograde on August 15th- and we do know that Uranus rules EARTHQUAKES, Computers, and because it is in Taurus- money, investments. The coin lacking issue is not going away, and States will need to be funded to keep the services intact, and saving never became more important than now. Risk takers will go into hiding and the markets just might see a suffering this week, that shocks everyone.
That brings us to the Mars Square Saturn aspect on August 24th- which is an aspect of hard work, needed maturity, and cleaning out the cobwebs in the basement because black widows are in abundance.
Get ready for a shocking month in Politics.
The 19th of August will shed light on some hope, as the new moon is in Leo at 27 degrees. I still believe that 45 will resign. This New Moon falls on his Ascendant and conjuncts his Mars. He hates to losing and he is losing. He'll want a new life of golf 24/7 and like I said earlier, he really wants to be a STAR that gets a standing ovation, not booed out of the theater. It is possible that he waits until the last minute to resign, thus throwing our country into more havoc. You know, he's really only true to himself, and doesn't care about either party.
With so many indicators of unrest, I am sure that the wrecking ball he is about to unleash will hurt his own party deeply. Remember what we have seen and heard for the last three years, it is proof- his taste for vengeance and revenge is deep. It is a strange thing that the christian right supports this behavior and votes for hate instead of love. Perhaps they will go to confession and repent. Neptune rules spirituality and the conman- so it is your free choice which you prefer. This month Jupiter is in a lovely sextile with Neptune the entire thirty days. Review your relationship methods. Use this energy to take you higher to the divine love vibe, and treat your neighbor as you would yourself. If you don't love yourself, you aren't going to be nice to anyone, so start loving yourself! WEAR A MASK!
On the 8th Venus moves into Cancer! The miracle of love is more powerful and dynamic than anything. This energy will be centered in food, security, and the family. I am sure that by the 8th some solutions to our crisis will begin to surface. While Venus is in Cancer make sure you tend to your network of loved ones, for as we have seen - life can whisk you away, you are not promised the next breath. Learn this deep truth, and you will live as if there is no tomorrow- fully present in the NOW. Feed your soul as well, and drink in your blessings.
On the 21st Mercury moves into Virgo, the practical sign. We are very happy about this timing, as no one does healthcare better than mercury in Virgo. The best healthcare now is preventive medicine, getting you immune system in great shape. As Mercury steps into the degrees he/she will trine not only Uranus, (vaccine success) but also the Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn line up. This is called- WE HAVE A PLAN!
As we get into September, America will get with the program; she’ll begin stitching herself a nice new wardrobe. It will be made of the simplest of fabrics, with an attention to details that will see us through the storm.
Keep your sense of humor and remember the power is within you, it never left, you just took an extended nap; time to WAKE UP!

Diversity is a great meal
When creating a balanced diet, it is important to have a variety of foods. If you eat the same meal every single day, you will develop malnutrition.
America is suffering from malnutrition of the cultural and emotional kind. The allergic reaction that surfaces in some people (not all) when fed an appetizer of a foreign idea, unable to even give it a try or simple consideration, is self-defeating behavior.
We are a country built on variations of ethnicity, race, faith, languages, values, and political preferences but we are first- HUMANS. Divine humans.
And yet, here we are about to have a 244th birthday, and we can't seem to understand the benefits of sharing; such an instrumental concept in cooperation, and community. Our news proves that we have not learned this lesson.
A vaccine for the world to beat a killer disease is hogged by the greed that is destroying this country's heart.
I've said it many times, in many articles and on different formats, America is stuck in adolescence. It is time to grow up. At this point in our history, refusal to mature is costing lives. When you are between the ages of twelve and seventeen you are growing at a rapid pace. Not yet sure of who you are or want to 'be' when you 'grow up'. Being a teenager is a time of exploration for some.
I once ran into a friend who had a two year old. He said to her- "Tell Parker your favorite word"... she looked away and firmly said- "NO".
That is what I hear and read everywhere- "No, I am not wearing a mask", "No, I am not going to listen to the science", "No, I am not going to stay six feet apart". "No, No, No."
CLOSED MINDEDNESS cannot GROW. It is like a sink of stagnant water.
OPEN MINDEDNESS? The horizon will always have an interesting story that can be shared. It creates space for your heart to pump more blood, and thus provides oxygen and nutrients that are required for health.
Granted, I understand the need for familiar. It gives a sense of "knowing" and comfort. Like the sun rising in the am, even if the clouds are hiding it. In astrology Saturn rules traditions, father-time, your bones, teeth, and spine. What holds you up, and allows you to chew food. We all want to stand tall, even at 5 feet. Doing a free-fall continually, just makes you unstable. No one can enjoy a roller-coaster ride that doesn't stop.
Saturn has been in the sign of Aquarius since March 31st, just around the time that Covid-19 let us know- this unwanted, unexpected guest, was staying indefinitely. Lives were turned upside down without a seat-belt on. Aquarius is the sign that likes to be unconventional, yet is very concerned about humanity, rules air travel, inventions, and also doesn't like to be "told" what to do.
On the first of July, Saturn re-entered Capricorn, as it has been traveling retrograde since May 11th. It will remain in Capricorn until December 18th, 2020.
What we have NOW- is a backdrop that JUST changed themes. The energy has been so crazy, with so much chaos and uncertainty, that everyone is dehydrated, begging for water- plain water. Like a lake of calmness. Forget flying my kite to the new land, give me a chair on the beach and some waves that lap in and out with a serene mantra. Give me what I know I can count on- that is Saturn in Capricorn's wish. And he delivers,with a black-all cotton- mask on! And its going to last for a LONG time.
The world is craving this energy. And we will have it! We will have to fight for it- but we will have it.
The desire for the new and untried- constant excitement- is no more, for now.
There is a Lunar Eclipse on America's birthday. The moon in Capricorn is mirroring this need for a steady ship, without holes popping up every five seconds. The moon in a mundane chart shows the public. The masses are weary. The first responders are exhausted. Our country is desperately begging for some peace. We are headed straight for a very serious depression. And the menu is potatoes. Mashed, baked, steamed, fried- but just potatoes. The diversity will have to be discovered from within to create outstanding recipes; you can do it! Potatoes never tasted so good, after three years of food fights consisting of indescribable left-overs.
We need a loving leader to guide us to the picnic table, covered with foods that we know and love. The simpler the better. The diversity of the meal is in who sits here- ALL of the people of this great land. The young, old, wealthy, not as in 'rich' as in generous of heart, and those who can pass the dish nourishment, not throw it; not waste it.
This is not a 'last supper' this is the first meal- the breakfast of Champions- Americans who can live with each other in the spirit of working to heal, communicate, and change our country into what it wants to become- AN ADULT.
PLEASE- WEAR A MASK. Do your Dharmic duty!
What is the one food that is diverse and everyone enjoys at every meal?
Serve love on the 4th. That is the birthday present that this country needs right now- and it is not possible to consume too much of it.
Happy Solar Return America!

The World is on Fire; here comes the Eclipses!
America is on fire.
The world is in fear.
History is being made.
How to make sense of the last week, and how it is tied to decades of frustration for many people.
We are in such uncharted times! The one thing sure to bring a sense of calm, is spending more time in your heart than head.
These times are a changing.....(Dylan has such futuristic timing). Right before our eyes, we have seen one world go- the one that had structure.
Now, we can spend more time in the "now"- because the future is so very much, a big question. Even to me, looking at the stars, to see where the light might be shone, it is only by going to a place that is very quiet that I can even grasp which avenues *might* grow branches, and which ones will certainly grow weeds.
We are five days from the first of three eclipses. These will stir up possibilities, and hunches will become firmed up, bonafide new deals. Eclipses also seal deals that end. They are full and new moons that rev up the engine of change. You can have a closure before the birth, and visa versa.
The key to handling them, is to watch the river flow, listen to all the signs, especially the one coming from your higher knowing. And then, to wait for a bit (3 days) until the eclipse has passed- to act. It is not considered good form to grab the food before the host sits down. It is best to let all the guest show up first, and let the host greet and guide you through the courses of the meal. Eclipses will do the same, if you allow for it.
I didn't say you'd necessary like the menu. Some delicacies are acquired tastes...others, you didn't know how you ever lived without, and then some just fade from memory. If your planets are triggered by an eclipse, events that it ushers in, never fade to black. They restore or upend the digestive tract. Sometimes, its been needed for ages.
This first Lunar Eclipse falls in the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. It is 15 degrees 34 minutes, and in an exact square to Mars in Pisces. It creates what we call- a T-sq. Muscle tool. Adjustment is needed to 'make it work'....or getting the job done. What is the mundane factor in all of this?
The tensions will continue, but I do hope and send out the vibration that a round table of open hearts can lead us to make substantial changes in this country. We need ideas and leaders with new beliefs and philosophies in manifesting strong structures that allow for EVERYONE to have a place at the table. And EVERYONE to have food on their plate!
HOW can the "richest country" have so many poor? So many people not left behind, NEVER thought of being invited in the first place! We are not a "Christian" nation until we behave as Christ. I never saw a scripture that commanded to - "Go forth and shop".
Go forth and FEED- sure! Food that is clean, not poisoned with toxins that make some manufacturing company wealthy, as it kills you. Some people started a garden (even in the window seal) during the stay home orders. Back to the basics, mother nature (via COVID19) suggested. And it is a good message. Community gardens have always been a great idea. This reminds me of the community garden in south central- that fed hundreds of families, gave work to farmers, and created a magical community. South Central Farms. Bloomed out of love, and effort in a concrete desert in the middle of Los Angeles. Started in 1994. Bulldozed in 2006 by greedy corporate hunger. But not of food. The hunger of MORE money. On July 5th 2006 (the day after America's birthday) it was crushed. (See the documentary film- "The Garden").
IT is THAT sort of crushing that has gone on and on and on for people of color that leads the riots today. One day a garden, next day a neck. Over and over and over. The destroying of dreams, and of lives.
AMERICA HAS TO CHANGE. We are a teenager country. It is time to mature to adulthood.
AND PLEASE SEND US A GROWN UP LEADER.
Shout out to all the grown ups on duty- THANK YOU! Cuomo, Newsom,Whitmer, all the front liners. All the people who know what one consciousness means! And those who are trying to discover how to be a better person, by LIFTING UP others.
Lunar Eclipses are full moons. So, they shed light on issues. Pisces is about the underdog. And since Mars is in Pisces in a t-sq with Sun in Gemini and Moon in Sagittarius in June 5th eclipse we clearly see- as above so below- in what we need to work on! The ideas and plans that are practical in bringing the community of the world together.
Food, Housing, and Healthcare are humanitarian needs. They have lost their true meaning by the gross drive of 'for profit at all cost-lives'.
I have hope that our being shaken up by this virus, that has no mercy, will result in our hearts having only mercy for those that are less fortunate.
The other issues that will come up with this eclipse is our hospitals and how they 'make' or don't make money. Health Care needs good management to be successful. There are many people who will be bankrupt because of hospital bills from covid19 related illnesses. Once again, the fight for universal healthcare will enter the boxing ring of our political system.
Immigration will continue to be an important topic; treaties and visas will again hit the headlines.
All things Sagittarius will be highlighted in the next six months. Athletics, Universities, to travel or not to travel aboard. Studying aboard will be considered much more carefully.
Constitutional law- and its erosion is a grave concern for many who are paying attention. Sagittarius is international law and we'll see some questionable moves being attempted, and blocked. T-squares never make anything 'easy'. So this Lunar eclipse in a t-square relationship will require much more than wishful executive orders.
Sagittarius rules comedy. Humor. These stressful times are going to make comedy skits even funnier. Some of the funnies will be funny much later....when you can laugh at the craziness we are all part of and witnessing here on planet earth 2020.
The second Eclipse in this series of three headed our way, is on the 20th of June. It is at zero degree and in the sign of Cancer. Elizabeth Warren and Adam Schiff both have birthdays on the 22nd of June! (astro twins!!)... Having a birthday so close to an eclipse means very big big changes in the year ahead. I am of the mind that Warren, will be the Vice-president running mate of Biden. This may pick up steam near the eclipse.
Having an eclipse at zero degree Cancer, means- that America will be impacted heavily. USA's birth Venus and Jupiter placements are near this point. The attempt to 'jump start' America- might see real birthing, closer to July. This eclipse shows a new start, that right now 'has sunglasses on'. Governor Cuomo expressed the practical idea- build America's infrastructure; get us on our feet and create jobs. The astrology supports this! It is an excellent idea, and one that would make GREAT use- of the long term transits of Mars in Aries that begins on June 30th and last until January 2021! The stars say- GREEN LIGHT! Mars is action, and Aries is new and now! THE TIME IS NOW! (in more ways than one, its always NOW, can't be anything else). Aries is also strength and Mars is Aries's ruling sign- so it is at home in that placement. A+ idea.
Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th. It is perfect for reviewing plans- tied to the home, as it is in cancer. REBUILDING our realities. We are all going to be doing this on one level or another.
Which brings me to my current new project! I've started an astrology podcast, and a Patreon Page as well. You can support my astrology work by becoming a patron, (there are three tiers- 5.00, 10.00, 20.00 ). This comes with many perks and lots of astrological information beyond what I normally address in this once a month blog. I have been creating this astrology blog as seva, since 2006.
Now, it is time for me to be a practical idealistic, since my livelihood changed with Corona Virus.
Or, if you feel moved by my words, a donation can be made many places. One is on my astrology website- in the Golden Caldron on the links page.
IF you are unsure about how to re-invent yourself at this cross roads time in life, a reading just might be in order!
Here are the links-
The third eclipse happens in July, just as America turns another year older. I will discuss that one later. The first two, show us how to grow, by pruning what is not aiding.
New sprouts come after a wildfire; a new America can bloom, if we plant the seeds.

Not only are you hanging out inside your house, tent, cave, hut, etc... go inside to your innermost being. The place where you 'talk to your self' - but go beyond the words you 'think', to go the silence.
Can't find it? Try again. KEEP trying...because that is where 'we' are at.
That is all we can do. Most of us realize the seriousness of the times.
As we move into the month of May, we will be enduring more 'inward' energy as several planets will be retrograde.
Here is the line-up: Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto will all be doing the inner dance, as they do a turn around. Pluto started the retreat on the 25th. Saturn will follow on the 11th of May. Venus won't be upstaged in by going incognito, she'll flip on the 13th. Jupiter will shuffle off stage, behind the curtain, on the 14th.
So, what this means for you and me- is that 'as above, so below'... if the energy is turning inward, you don't have to go into hibernation, but retrospection is called for. Time to review your money and love situation- (Venus), your Security and ground you stand on (Saturn), your beliefs and legal options (Jupiter) and how you can morph into a new being, by rising higher via going deeper (Pluto). To the CENTER of your being.
Everyone is going to be doing this on some level. It is called: WAKING UP to the MOMENT.
The "big" event this month, is that on the 5th, the nodes (not planets, the planes where the moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic path)...move into GEMINI...(they move backwards)...Gemini rules communications, the arms, shoulders, and LUNGS. "PERHAPS" some NEW discovery of why or how the virus attaches to the lungs will be discovered. How to be rid of it! We can only use our power of mantra, and prayer to help the super intelligence to guide our scientists. The nodes represent where we are 'becoming'..and they are tied to fate.
This is a good time to shout out to all the people who have been on the front lines of this fight for light and life- THANK YOU ESSENTIAL WORKERS !
THANK YOU POSTAL WORKERS, DOCTORS, NURSES, POLICE, FIRE FIGHTERS, Governor NEWSOM, GOVERNOR CUOMO (THE MAN!), ALL Governors who have acted to protect the citizens of their state. Food workers, (ALL OF THEM). !!!! Everyone who has gone out and continued to do service in spite of possible death. YES, DEATH.
IF you are one of those people who think this VIRUS isn't interested in YOUR LUNGS- you might be right,* it* instead, might fancy your blood by clotting up and giving you stroke. OR perhaps it will just take a limb or two.....
Many Americans have always thought that death was something that happens to 'other people' or 'old people'.... this country has an immature reaction to death. It is ignored. The ONLY garrentee that you'll EVER have in life, is that you are going to drop the body one day. That subject has never been a hot topic in the states. And here we are with over sixty thousands deaths in six weeks! No, baby, this isn't 'like the flu', and sixty thousand people don't die in car crashes in America every sixty days.
So, listen up- but not to the ORANGSLIME!!! Lysol isn't for internal use, it's for cleaning the toilet.
What will help you now, is getting the immune system strong. In astrology that would be tied to your SUN SIGN.
So here are some tips -
Aries- move the body, and keep the anger down...Your ruler Mars, is in Aquarius until the 14th. During this time you can strengthen your techno skills and help friends navigate the sound waves with zoom.
Taurus- seek out those who you can talk with when you get down. Venus in Gemini all month can bring new forms of communications with others. Did you know the plants listen? Gardening not only is a way to get things off your chest, you can also grow some food! One less trip to the risky store!
Gemini- The first 10 days of the month your ruler Mercury, is in Taurus. Singing in the shower is recommended. It lifts the mood, helps brain circulation, and reminds you that even if you are on lock-down, you DO still have a voice and no mask is required while bathing.
Cancer- You should be doing very well, because - you are forced to be at home! Bake away! Stay in bed all day! Shake it up with the family, playing board games, Use chocolate as the reward for not going out.
Leo- Time to revisit - show and tell! Dress up as a painting, (its all the rage online) or play charades via Skype! Discover a new creative expression....... develop a one person show, write a song, love letter, or take up tap dancing, (exercise).
Virgo- Research all the homeopathic medicines that keep the immune system strong. Clean out the refrigerator, or just disinfect the entire house.
Libra- Juice it up. Keep the kidneys flush. Watch old romantic movies. Give yourself homemade facials.
Scorpio- Dig deep into a mystery- book, or any 'discovery' channel. Study a slow movement martial arts form (you tube) and practice it when you get up tight. Get lovey with your partner, imagined or real.
Sagittarius- Hang outside in the sunshine (back yard, front porch, walk around the block), watch happy comedies, study a foreign language, plot your next overseas getaway for when travel is allowed.
Capricorn- Organize the ideas for the next great company that you'll start....research grants that you might qualify for. Be sure to take vitamin D for you bones!
Aquarius- Be sure to rest enough. Rest more. Saturn is in your sign right now- take it easy on yourself. Get in touch with friends in new ways, (send post cards, face-time, and video bomb them with jokes).
Pisces- Daydream, go easy on the mind altering substances, instead learn to mediate or explore music- yoga, and raw foods. Don't watch too much news...like none!
Keeping our immune system strong means- being aware of all the things you take in with the senses as well as the food you eat. Our mind/emotion/body have to nurtured now. Be kind to yourself. Do little helpful things for your neighbors...when you risk going out- pick up an extra something (anything!) for the next door neighbor. Write cards to friends, learn cursive if you are from one of the generations that didn't get it in school, (its THE secret code now!). Eat well, take care of yourself, so that you can live to tell those that haven't been born yet, how - AMERICA IS STRONG... LOVING... AND UNITED.
Don't waste time blaming, complaining, or degrading others.
LIVE FOR TODAY. That is all we have- today, this moment. This breath.
WEAR A MASK!
