April 21, Cardinal Countdown 2014


All this peak energy makes me sleepy.
I feel like the one person in ten that coffee puts to sleep.

There is so much to do, I don’t mean on an emotional/psychological level,
I mean there actually is SO MUCH TO DO.

I want to curl up in a sunspot.
Wake me when the world has decided itself,
& we are free to maneuver without radical consequence.
Wake me when the decisions have been made and I only need live them out amiably.

That’s hilarious, really, because I never would agree to anything like that!
Captain Cardinal reporting for work.

I wanted to write:

~What was that Ambivalence?
I’m sorry I can’t hear you over the sound of my epic decision making prowess!
Boom there it be. We there now.~

In it’s own way that is just as true,
Mess with me, and you’ll find out at your peril,
just how flimsy any non-ultimate reality folds up and disappears…
Priorities prioritized?


and the rest… the rest can go f*ck itself
& YET, I’ve noticed myself getting off on delivering extra kindness,
why not be even a little nicer, why not go the extra mile or ten?

(great song, but Correction ALERT! Mercedes was born on April 21, 1904!)


Do you have emotional clarity in a situation that has yet to resolve itself,
and the clarity you have seems true, but useless?

Not that it’s irrelevant, but that it doesn’t solve the equation.
a piece of the puzzle is still missing…
Estimated time of delivery: Why, this very week!

There is a longer story being told as well,
the shape of it still emerging.

Watch the wind pick up and start blowing us around in a month,
when Mars goes direct in May.

Since destiny is at work here, I’m going to let it do the heavy lifting.
Task orientation: make a list, cross those f*ckers off.
I’ll try not to yawn in polite company.

Love YOU!!!

Dream Teens


The Cardinal Grand Cross + our Venus ruled Eclipses have turned us all into teenagers, dreamy, impulsive, teenagers.
at least those with a heavy Uranus or Neptune signature…
double whammy for whoev is having their Uranus opposition

gotta take the chance no matter the cost

Despite what there is to lose, Jupiter in Crab ups our sense of safety.
Pisces wants us to just feel it out, to see what happens when we try…

There are things you can only do with your eyes half closed.

Love YOU!!

April 18, 2014 Weekend & Beyond


Sagittarius Moon, between the Eclipses.
The Moon waning while the Grand Cross torques tight.

What kind of everything and nothing has happened?
Still trying to scrape together an ending without ruffling too many feathers,
Or wait, the beginning… right… wait what?
Some kind of sound echoing,


Thanks for the invite, ~Hello Ambivalence, come on in.~
It’s not that I don’t care, I care more than anything, it’s just that…

So much to do, it makes me yawn like a nervous dog…
Events and the notifications thereof…
popping up like popcorn.

Sunday April 20th we are suddenly in Taurus!
Happy Birthday Bulls!!!!


I think the Taurus Sun will help our dramas unfold more gracefully,
More stubbornly too, so there’s that.
Even so, the extra earth is an advantage.

Capricorn Moon heading in to Pluto on Easter Sunday,
with the ruler of the Sun: Venus conjunct Chiron,& trine Jupiter,
whole lotta potential there that could swing either way.

if your traditions have been painful, it’s a good moment to innovate:
go for quality & timelessness if you have a choice

Easter/Ishtar res-erection boinks like bunnies in springtime…
She has sort of a Venus/Persephone thing going,
but you knew that.

Coming to life!

Venus trine Saturn (building now, exact the 25th) makes it real.
Connections we forge now are far from flimsy,
Choose wisely Kittens,
As we head into next week’s Grand Crossroads Bonanza,
let’s take comfort in the fact that we are all doing it together.

Our lives are so tightly linked that each change becomes a chance to to exercise kindness in how we handle it. Better to do a difficult thing with compassion.
What happens now will be remembered.
Take Venus in Pisces with you, breathe easy, open heart.

Next Wednesday Mercury moves in to Taurus for all the action.
Stunned into silence?
Or an impassioned thoughtful speaker once the floodgates are open?

tune in next week….

Love YOU!!!

Water Trine: Neptune, Venus, Chiron, Jupiter, Moon, Saturn.

Scorpio Moon heading to Saturn

A little theater makes the darkness better…

sing along now….

Merc opposite Mars: watch where you point yo mouf.
Is there a tripwire set to release a flood?
Easy Cowboy

Good day to use what you know to get what you want.
It does take a light touch.
Better to say nothing and listen sharp,
than to detonate bombs that you are not pos. you want to drop.
Worst is to watch it blow up in your hands…

There is a bottom line in here, but it’s not a certain as it sounds…
it’s more like a ocean, plenty of depth and possibility lurking below the surface…
lurking? yeah, lurking.

… we are in motion.

Love YOU!!!

Echos of 1999 and even early 2000?
I like this drama better, it’s more slippery! hahaha!!
Can I say that?! (go Pisces !)

I couldn’t possibly have written more about the Eclipse.

A mountain is piled up behind me if you are curious!*
Full Moon loaded with everything.
Full Moon Deluxe with extra sauce!

Mars still retro,
the changes won’t be fully enacted until he suits up and grabs his sword
on May 19th.

Can we see the shape of what’s to come?
Absolutely, as long as you factor in the random!
Is there a plot twist? Naturellement!

Love YOU!!!



*Eclipse posts:

Videos where I talk to you!

Thinking about surfing!

Long ramble Full of details

Have a Beautiful Day!!!

Cardinal Cross, Lunar Eclipse in Libra 2014

tumblr_n2rnk67v291qj0dyfo4_400 *

There is so much to say, I can hardly seem to say it.
It’s quite a thing to live this astrology…
But you know ALLLLL about that, just as well as I do.
Could we be like doctors ~First do no harm~ ?


I don’t think it’s going to be that simple…

A swirl of activity, no rest for the restless.
Can you sleep?
Or is sleep an easy out, climb aboard and let dreamland find you…
The surreal marries the banal, and has so many mismatched babies.

Keep juggling and don’t put that glass down either.
Are you holding your breath?

NGS Picture ID:377673

As we move through April, remember that this change is a process, not fully encapsulated in any one single day.
A 2 year culmination ?
We can trace these threads to 2008

and yet, and yet…Crisis Calling!!!
If not Crisis, then surely Crossroads has dialed you up & would like to have a word.

Lunar Eclipse, Pluto Station Retro, Cardinal Grand Cross Exact, Solar Eclipse.
There is something for everyone!
Time is speeding up! How many things can happen how fast?

Before and After
some things will end

When I think about our Eclipses
I remind myself that they are Venus ruled
& that Venus is in the place she likes best.

Venus = Value(s) Relationships (Libra) & Resources (Taurus)
Key words for Pisces?
intuition, fantasy, compassion, letting go


On our April 14/15th Lunar Eclipse in Libra:
Mercury conjuncts Uranus in the Grand Cross Configuration =
Surprise Message

Are we walking into a trap!?
It hardly seems subtle enough, more like an ambush


Something that turns us upside down or slips the ground we stand on sideways.
We get news! Pallas in LEO trines the Sun, & sextiles the Moon & North Node.
Recognition: we will have an acute analysis & likely we don’t keep quiet.

In the chaos of becoming, in the midst of everyone else becoming too…
Will we know which chance to take?…. well we might actually

Universe style course corrections are the norm,
this doesn’t mean you take what you are given.
It means the big picture parameters will be set by the hand of god.

It’s up to you to re-frame,
to translate your experience
into something workable for you, and negotiate from there.

Pisces, remember, flexibility, charm

Trust yourself
Open the door to higher guidance
What does the most relaxed version of yourself have to offer this scenario?
What would you say if you were feeling FREE?

Make it a rule to take excellent care of your body so far as you are able.
Have sex as often as possible, yes really! It’s all about the release.
What you want, is to keep your conduit to pleasure open.
Venus in Pisces insists.

Compassion, Altruism, Allure, Acceptance, Kind clever words, $!,
Friends, Family, Favors Owed:

what resources do you have?

Faith & Hope, Strongest & Best
Jupiter and Venus can give you the confidence to go on and not give up,
To keep opening doors and asking questions,
Follow through, could be that’s what it takes.

Can you do that while being pulled in all directions and squeezed through the eye of a needle?

don’t worry about it, you already are


you can operate from a place where your heart feels open,
a place where you feel internally relaxed, despite external circumstance

Could this Full Moon deliver a dose of disillusionment?
When illusions are leaving, freedom is close at hand.

Venus has the final word here:
What do you like?
What (whom) do you want?
All in? Or out?

Relationships are the main feature of the story,
(& not only romantic relationships, friends and enemies count!)
A dramatic solution presents itself…
but you don’t have to bite like a fish on a hook.
As ever, key word for Libra:


Venus/Chiron/Neptune trine Jupiter looks like using your individuality as a conduit
for expanding your life, opening to a new outcome.

Work it through.
Pluto turns retrograde on the 14th.
We won’t be finished until every stone is turned over,
but you don’t have to turn them all yourself.

~Like this, he took the edge of the turf beside me and pulled it…he clothed himself in this and in the land that lay below. And as crumbs fall from a coat as you move it, the falls, the lake, and the green valleys beyond were spilled downward and tipped away toward the sea. With the land rolling and ruined…The River was tipped and spilled even after this, until it ran as a thread which thread became a thousand streams, as many as the threads of my weaving. And the land was a new shape. Only then was my grandfather satisfied.~ Diana Wynne Jones

Love YOU!!!

April 8, 2014 Leo Moon



I always love that Leo rules the heart and the back.
Your core, the center, the Sun.
Stand up proud Lions,
hold your center erect, and radiate.

If life is an art, how best to live it?
Passion can’t be faked, although skills too come in handy.
It is that respect for ourselves that leads to brilliance.
You’ve got to feel dazzling in order to shine.

Leo Moon wants recognition, our feelings must be seen.
an emotional performance?
the joy of existence?
the joy of even the sorrow of existence?

This song tears the soul right out of my chest.
Why is it we always feel with our heart, or chest?
It never happens that my soul is about to be torn from my leg!

Plenty going on that we can’t see, oh but we will, soon enough…
and whatev it is that we ourselves are doing… isn’t that just what someone else is about to learn?

The event horizon is thick with happenings.
A web, an obstacle course, not just of feelings but of circumstance.
What happens?

Love YOU!!!

Cardinal Cross, Venus in Pisces, Merc in Aries, Eclipse! April 2014


On the 5th of April, Venus entered Pisces.
On the 7th of April Mercury entered Aries,

Venus in Pisces shares
but she is also lonely, impersonal, a visionary lover.
Solitude that’s her place,
Or maybe she is dancing, drinking in sensation,
not aligned to any one lover, instead, open to all

Mercury in Aries is an original thinker.
A Hero, Honesty, a letter written in ALL CAPS!
Competition! He enjoys kicking a wasp nest as much as anyone,
In Aries, Mercury fights for the joy of it.
Fortune favors the bold!

Sharp words and a kind heart.

Aries Mercury speaks without thinking, be aware.
It’s mostly Earth that’s missing right now,
& the Air we have is dispassionate, but not detached.
we have Water, and we have Fire, here comes the steam.

Is it hard to see in heat of the steam-room?
A little*

Watch as Jupiter opens doors for Venus,

Venus takes her place in exaltation, to co-mingle with Neptune and Chiron.
Passive individual allure, mystery attracts.
Venus in Pisces wants love, money, pleasure, art, but not to keep.
Rather, she is in it for the experience,
kindness offered with an open hand.
Jupiter in Crab is a gardener, who loves to see each flower grow.

Wide open perspective and generosity are rewarded,
Jupiter startles awake (uranus) a lucky chance.
as beauty (venus) brings opportunities that could otherwise be missed.
Jupiter co-rules Pisces, right alongside Neptune.

NGS Picture ID:581937

In Pisces, Venus will sacrifice.
Ruled by Jupiter in Crab, that sacrifice will not be death,
as it might be, if ruled by Scorpio.

a mountain spring, or holy water,
something that disperses inside you, an ethereal life giving quality

Crab and Pisces, Devotion and Acceptance.
Freedom is involved in this,
the freedom to let go, as the river branches,
as someone makes their own mistakes,
or pick them up when they fall.

The more responsibility you take for your place in your life at the moment,
the more control you have, the better you feel.
It’s a mix of owning your life, while accepting that so much is out of your hands
when the wave comes,
we float like a bubble on the curve

Still breathing,
as long as you are reading this, breath is blessing you with consciousness,
and in that consciousness there is an opening to a new world.


Venus in Pisces asks us to allow things to happen.

To make room for the unforeseen positive outcome,
for possibility

to not abandon our humanity as we deal with a ruthless, unforgiving and unstable bottom line

This week the Full Moon we are building towards on April 14/15th is
a Total Lunar Eclipse in Libra.**

First come the endings
Count it as active now.
can there be a beginning mixed in? yes, naturally, some endings are like that

Actions with unexpected consequence,
reality is always a surprise no matter how far away you see it coming.

Words with a knife edge of finality will be spoken.

Forgiveness is a easy word to say, a hard one to learn,
I was well grown before I knew anything about it.
If you need a shortcut, try this:
if something is hurting you, if something wants to leave, LET GO.

Internal triggers pressed by events NOW
Things Change.


On April 28/29th, we begin a story that plays out for 6months,
& in many cases much longer: New Moon Eclipse.

Love YOU!!!


I’ll be writing more & make some movies about the Eclipses!
Oh Yes I will!!!

*~Surfers have the odd habit of saying “I drowned” when they mean “I almost drowned.” Drowning, after all, feels like almost drowning until it feels like nothing. When I ask Dollar to explain the sensation of almost drowning, his answer, and the way he holds his face as he says it, makes me feel that the question is an intrusive one. “It’s just depressing and lonely,” he says, not making eye contact. “The lights start turning off, literally. It blinks in your mind and goes black. Pretty soon, it’s just lights out and you’re done.” He pauses awkwardly. “It’s really fucking weird.”

Surf contests might be the strangest of all athletic competitions.They’re not fair, and they can’t be. Each wave presents a different set of challenges, and depending on how many happen to break during a heat — and on a surfer’s own tenacity — he might catch one or five or none…He can take off on as many or as few as he likes, and often there are multiple men to a wave.
… Getting barreled (traveling as the wave curls above you, creating a tunnel) is objectively the most impressive feat in surfing, and it is always the thing that nonsurfers assume must just be an optical illusion. When Skindog finally emerges, he’s still standing. The crowd cheers.
Skindog’s wave is, for lack of a better word, awesome. Or insane. Or a slow, silent what the fuck. Such a big wave produces such a crude reaction that there’s really no need for more precise vocabulary. Maybe surfers talk the way they do because they’re used to being amazed, and that carries over into their ordinary interactions. This wave does not inspire nuanced feelings in me. Basically, I’m just like, dude.~ -Alice Gregory

New Moon in Aries, Cardinal Cross, Eclipses, April 2014


Uncertainty is what you want to grab a hold of
because uncertainty is what you can be sure of.

Things are going to change now.
You change what you can, and so does everyone else.
On your MARK, SET, BEGIN!!

Are you thinking about taking a risk?
How long has this been comin’ on?

In what ways will the changing structure of MONEY
& POWER impact your life ?

Can you fight fair when it’s all about power inequality?
Listen, fair or not fair, don’t fight.
You can maneuver.
& May the best artist win.


What’s needed is a clever mixture of sincerity and guile.
A light touch to move a heavy rock requires a lever.

Don’t let anyone else frame the landscape for you.
The way you see things is so much of what you see.
Let that be innovative, frame and re-frame
until you arrive with something workable, and even that may change again.
Changes are sudden, but results take time.

Right now it’s like a blocked sink that will turn suddenly to a whirlpool.
Will you get sucked in?
On what beach will it spit you out with shells clinging to your hair?


maybe it’s a little flame,
a candle that catches the house afire and you crawl away blackened and bloody, coughing and gasping from smoke scorched lungs?

It’s not only disaster,

It could be the best thing that ever happened.

An uprooting SO DEEP,
that it takes down the tree that has been overshadowing your whole life.

The roots just strangling you, and the heavy branches ensuring that no light is getting in.

The hand of fate is at work here,
but it’s not really so personal,
even when events impact you on the most intimate level.
It’s about the times we live thorough.

Return to your core before any big decision.
Ask yourself, is this right? Is it right?
Wait until you feel that hit of certainty,
if you can’t find it, remind yourself that life is a process,
you are a verb!


Chaos opens opportunities,
it’s not about getting it right the first time.
Flexibility matters, we are not aiming to be an oak here, try for bamboo.
Adaptable, bendy.

Innovate & operate with skill and precision.
remember the scene changes may be sudden, but
there are retrogrades,
+ dealing with old friends and foes takes skill, &

No matter how it strikes you,
we are in some kind of beginning…

Now is when problems that have dogged you can be kicked into high gear and solved,
Obliterated or rendered obsolete.
Whole lifelong limitations can be abandoned by the wayside with this astrology.
In a new world, you can become someone new.

Love YOU!!!!



if you are down for a ramble, I got one for you!

Jupiter and Uranus Redux


Jupiter and Uranus are right back
where they were, for the Full Moon of August 20th 2013
Jupiter @ 11 Crab, Uranus @ 12 Aries.

Back in August, the Leo Sun/Aquarian Moon was hi-lighting Uranus’ position in the T-Square. Right now, it’s all about the Aries Sun.
Aries: the beginning, Square Pluto,
Square Jupiter, opposite Mars.

Chiron trine Jupiter & sextile Pluto still a major player,
just as he was in that moment.
Take a min and LOOK BACK.

See what I mean?

& see too how far we have come.

Love YOU!!!!
