July 22, 2014 Leo Sun, Uranus Retro


Sun/Jupiter in LEO square Mars in Libra.
Goodbye Crab!

Don’t fight about how to get it done.
Share out the portions, divide and conquer, or
work together on something difficult.

People may go for the power play,
Let them,
not your problem. You are busy re-making the world.

Breathing life into circumstance.

Skill. Mastery. Beauty. Knowledge.
Put your Heart in the right place.

Just past the Mercury Pluto opposition.
Perception is heightened, but you don’t have to use everything you know at once.
It’s enough just to know it.
In some cases, it’s as good as money in the bank.

Venus trines Neptune, you can still feel the love, music makes it sweeter.
Change the music, change the scene

Uranus turns back.
Weren’t there some changes you had been planning on making?

It’s time to go back and do it right the first time, all over again.

Love YOU!!!!


I hate to say it, but I am traveling once more!
I may be out of touch for a week or so.
I’ll be thinking of you!!


Double p.s.

yeah! right?

Saturn Direct/Uranus Retro 2014


Don’t waste your own time.
You’ve got to handle it.

Should you charge bravely ahead?
Yes. & dot your i’s and cross your t’s along the way.

It’s alright to get gritty if that’s what it takes to make it work.
Saturn in Scorpio is humbling
If you worry about how you will be perceived you’ll never make it.
Ask for help. From friends, from strangers.

People are kinder than you think.
Let your situation be known, and accept what you are offered.

This is the ~NO WAY OUT BUT THROUGH~ combination.

You know enough to know what you should be doing.
Here comes your backbone (Saturn) to help you along.

If you want a new way out of an old situation you can have one,
Begin today, and when does it happen?
Well, NOW and soon.

Coincidence and happenstance is here to help you along.
The end of some very old karma.
You know what they say about ~the end~?

It’s the beginning.


Love YOU!!!

Transition: Jupiter in Crab to Jupiter in LEO




Jupiter in EGO is upon us, and I suggest we enjoy it!


There is not exactly time to be introspective.
In fact, there is not exactly time.
Time is both fluid and active. So much to do!
You can’t have everything just the way you want it,
AND you can’t let that stop you.

It’s all big picture now.

Today the Moon is in Pisces, slippery and slow/fast.
Neptune trines Mercury
Don’t over think it.

In some fashion or another, your family has been restored to you.
Jupiter in Crab gave what it was possible to give, within the parameters of your reality.


Crab Jupiter: You move your home, or you travel with family.
You reconnect with those you love the most.

There has been a bountiful benign undercurrent that has kept the boat afloat in perilous waters. & the waters have been perilous.

Death, sickness, divorce, interminable power struggle.
Saturn in Scorpio insures no one missed out on realizing their bottom line.

But, Crab Jupiter has had a way of extending compassion where you can accept it.
She has a sense of humor too, something that takes the edge off.
Seeing the absurdity leaches half the poison.

The selkie blows you a kiss and turns back into a seal now.
You are on your way!

The parameters have been defined. You bit off a chunk, a big one,
now you are going to chew it.


No, something else: Mid-process, with so much on your plate.
Let the past fall away completely.
whatever remains, remains

~For me there is no materiality to apparent materiality. In our bodies, 3 billion cells a minute are dying and being reborn. So our bodies look solid, but they aren’t. How many minutes have just gone by and how many cells have died and been reborn? We’re like a fountain. A fountain of water looks solid, but you can put your fingers right through it. Our bodies look like things, but there’s no thingness to them.” – Li-Young Lee ~ via Whiskey River

Some dreams have come true already,
now we find out what it is like to live those dreams.

and the ones that didn’t come true…
the ones that didn’t come true yet?

You got to work for it.
The territory has been mapped. You know what beginnings you are looking for.
Uranus turns around to be right there when Jupiter in Leo needs it.
In the coming year Jupiter trine Uranus will open shut doors.
Playful Romance, anyone?

For some the doors are already OPEN.
Walking right through takes guts and ingenuity.
but is it easy? Sort of, yes. You let yourself. Foot meet street. Keep going.

We move from a lunar optimism to a solar one.
It’s not about needs and feelings, it’s about play, radiance, joy, love.
Wake up! Live.

Love YOU!!!



double p.s.

With Jup. in LEO, are you going to grow your hair?!
Dramatic haircut? Dye it?

I’m Back!!!


I’m back I’m back I’mbackIbackI’mback
I’M….. BACK!!!

ermagosh! I missed YOU!!!!

So Much has happened!!!
How was your full Moon in Capricorn?!?!

Did you see results?

HELLLLLOOOOOO Jupiter in LEO on Wednesday!!
and what do you think of Mercury in Crab?
Those thought-feelings, a certain sense.

Saturn about to station direct.
One week from now the hammer comes back down, neither bad nor good:
reality has a form: wake up this is your life.

So many things are happening so fast!
That’s what time it is!

I’ve so much to say…. I’ll come back soon and say it!

Love YOU!!!!

Weekend of the 4th & Beyond: The first half of July 2014


Between our series of choices, seemingly random but in fact unavoidable,
and our rapidly changing capacity and circumstance it’s easy to find that reality is a slippery little bastard.

Stay in your breathing, work from the NOW.

It’s another weekend where the sky goes BOOM!
Cardinal Grand Cross and all.


It’s loose, but the Moon is in Libra. Who is invited to this party?
Sun, Moon, Mars, Pluto, Uranus, Cardinal Characters Every One.
It’ll do.


Crabby Sun faces down Pluto,
she has support and protection, but this one goes deep.

So often the big changes are made out of necessity, that’s why they hurt so much.
We feel we are free to make them, hanging in the breeze of possibility, that the wind could have blown either way. We choose, then the weight of repercussion falls,
but if it were a choice so easily made, why would we be here under this ton of bricks, promising to build a cathedral, or at least a house that keeps out the big bad wolf?

don’t over think it

People are not things, and what sounds good on paper, what sounds good on paper… have you ever wanted to make a paper airplane? Have you ever noticed how easily paper burns?

Enforced Growth.
The trine from Saturn to the Sun makes it stick.

Later you will know what you did.
Right now you will do it.


Acting on instinct, wide awake, and without explanation.

~I’m not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.– Esperanza Spalding~

Individuate, rapidly.

Venus makes a zippy little sextile to Uranus: The new love?
Letting go of old Values & old ideas to make way for genius?
The art that wakes you up? Information you can use to form new relationships?
A friend gives you a tip that brings you $, or puts you where you need to be?

Between Saturn and Uranus:
The Shape of the Future
The obligation to forge a new world that we don’t hate,
a life that bears some actual relationship to our genuine selves.

Mid-way through July we have a scene change,

Big Full Moon on the 12th in Capricorn!
what will mommy and daddy do? I mean home and work, emotions and success
whatever it is, it’s inevitable. Let it happen, keep breathing.
The 14th and 15th everyone gets their Jupiter in Crab presents.
There are miracles, and somewhere in your life you will know it.
16th & 18th Jupiter changes signs and the Aries Moon tries to act on it.
when we get there, I’ll tell you allllll about it!

Take good care of your body, this is heavy work.
No worries about who you have been or who you said you would never be.

We are VERBS, not nouns.

Love YOU!!!


I’m going to be traveling for the next week or so.
I’ll try to pop in again, but it will not be so easy to post.
Need some fuel while I’m gone?

Read these:

~Plan B
I hope you never get tired of waiting for the world
to come to its senses. And that you have a quarter
for every homeless person who asks you for a quarter.
Like Sitting Bull, may you find America a hard place
in which to save the soul. If you listen closely the city
speaks your native language. I asked someone
for directions to the end of the world and he said,
Keep going till you can’t. Twelve years ago
I crossed six time zones, three continents,
half a lifetime. Existence is mathematics:
therefore your life will be as nearly perfect as mine.
I can’t recall the last time I truly loved anybody.
But in the corner of emotions I’ve kept the light on
for those who still can’t find their way. My father
pounds the walls in the shadow theater
of his grave. In my dreams the dead keep growing,
like fingernails or hair. If I could sum up
all that I’ve learned, here it is: Everything
eats everything. There is no escape. Galaxies graze
in endless space and outside of that who knows?
At some junction dappled with the residue
of stars, maybe you’ll find yourself as you were
a gigabyte ago. A quasar of desire. Your heart
as mortal as a bird. And when you speak
your voice forms a nest of trebuchets around you.
In the beginning was the Word. The rest is noise.
- Eric Gamalinda~

~I don’t like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and it isn’t of much value. Life hasn’t revealed its beauty to them.– Boris Pasternak~

~to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you’ve held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again. -Ellen Bass~

July 1, 2014 Mercury Direct

A baby Musk Ox just a few weeks old.


Mercury trines the North Node, as he moves ahead.
Messenger of destiny indeed.

Palazzo Labbia Venice

The Moon moves from LEO to Virgo.
We have the shape of things to come.

~Now we begin to fill in the details.~

Mercury Storm as we put our puzzle together,
it took me ages to post this, much resistance from the sky.

The shape of our obligations has changed under the Saturn Retrograde



The New Moon in Crab showed us how.

~For the most part, for the better, things aren’t what they were. ~

How does it look, now that it’s no longer theoretical?

Ironing out wrinkles, of which there are many,
some appear the size of Montana with the tenacity of a stubborn stain.
Looks can be deceptive, howevz,

On an instinctual level, people know things are going to give now,
the slightest breeze knocks the boulder down the hill,
whatever has stood in the way of our progress:
by the end of July, it’s no longer standing.

It’s a clean breeze blowing in, sure it shakes the foundations,
but here you still are, reading this, and Kansas was so very dull.

Love YOU!!!!


Cardinal Grand Cross over the weekend.
Use Caution, yes really

New Moon in Crab


New Moon in Crab:
It’s personal.

Cancer is the place where we begin and end. Lineage.
Home. Who you are in the dark by yourself.

We define ourselves and by extension our families:
This is who we have been, this is who we will become,
and importantly, this is who is included.
Hard shell, soft insides.

Sally Lightfoot Crab (Grapsus grapsus)

All the information is not in yet.
We will see our scenarios firm up July 1st and 2nd with Mercury Direct.

We begin now, anyway. Say yes to what you want.
Let yourself, no holding back for who or what you are supposed to be.
This is not about how it looks, but how it feels.
~Feelings are needs under the Cancer Moon.~
Align yourself.

It’s been a slow circuitous waterway we have been navigating.
Click Here to Look Back
Damns to explode, Bridges burnt or passed under, the interminable Aqueducts,
Tariffs (so many!) the loops of negotiation, mistake and misunderstanding, thick congested river traffic.

ENDLESS and here we are, near to the end.

Theendbeginning. That’s Crab.
The implication with Pisces Neptune and Gemini Merc, retro,
is that we are wrapping up old biz.
and not a moment too soon.

Look to your chart at 5 and 7 degrees, Cardinal, Mutable, some fixed,
nearly (everybody has an impact except Leo/Aquarius,* and even they can feel the fade out),
The balance has permanently shifted.


A new sense of family a new sense of home.
Those words are so loaded.
A new sense of home, after all, could mean you are homeless!

Is there a Miracle here?
There is, of a kind.
Crab Jupiter offers what it can, an opening, some kind of safety, a way out.

If you need to ask, ask now.

Love YOU!!!


*They’ll get their own soon enough, as the second half of July is a whirlwind, and explosion, a forest fire and a Party!

June 25, 2014


It’s not exactly Joy, though it feels good to have your eyes open.
Open but unfocused. Clear enough what there is to see, but how do you see it?

Crack in the sky today, & the Moon is dark.

Watch out for accidents, go ahead and keep busy anyway.
Some things will end now, and the ones that begin are important.

Love YOU!!!

Week of June 23, 2014 New Moon in Crab


Today, Sun in Crabcakes, Taurus Moon,
Venus in Gemini

Cuddle up, talk on the phone, and eat a cookie?
The Taurus stability helps.


Research your next steps?
You need time in nature, the physical world is calling you, with it’s weight and it’s pleasures, and yet, busy:
phone calls to initiate, emails to return, actual things to do.

Just beyond Summer Solstice in my part of the world.

The days are long, and time stands almost above itself.
Poised like a man on a bridge above a river, as long as you stand there,
still, above the rushing water… No.
Time is the water, time moves on.

Dark of the Moon
quiet, and uneasy, it’s a very good time to give something away.

inexorable tension builds for another Mars/Uranus Sudden/Action
hi-lit Wednesday, but available all week long.


Tipping points vary, (has your arrived already?) but they’ll show before July 1st.

New Moon in Crab on Friday
I like it.
It’s got retrograde Neptune’s stamp of approval.
Those rosy glasses go on, but gather flowers while you may.

~The clouds above us come together and disperse;
The breeze in the courtyard departs and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can keep us from celebrating? – Lu-Yu~

Is it serious?
Oh I guess it is, you are going to have to DO something,
feeling bad won’t help here, a New Moon is a beginning,
let yourself feel good.

Retro Gemini Mercury trines the North Node in Libra:
the old puzzle will be solved, by working together, or even separately/together,
fulfilling your own half of what must be done.
Information comes in, all week now, over the weekend, and next Monday/Tuesday.

Which do you choose?
Why, the very best one!


The bonds you make and the bonds you break: but there is some sense of autonomy, no matter how close. Each on our own side of the fence and likely with more than one way forward.

Venus in Gemini = Options.

Love YOU!!!

June 20, 2014 Cardinal T-Square Dynamic Sky


Cardinal T-Square this weekend…
and the big Question is:

HOW are you Changing?

WHAT have you Changed?

The more you can answer actively, the better you are using the energy.
You can’t sit this one out.




Disaster? Freedom? Conflict?

INNOVATION: there is a key word for what we have going!

What can you INNOVATE?

Which way to the NEW?

Aries Moon Conjunct Uranus in the Cardinal T-Square, CLICK THIS
It’s as true now as ever!

The more you stay in the present, almost as if the past was only cobwebs to be brushed away, the more a fresh world is created as you see it anew.
It springs to life under your gaze.

Mercury slips past the Sun while the two trine the North Node in Libra:
Our minds are flexible, taking what they need to make logistical leaps toward balance.
Dance steps, and some of them nimble.

Venus says yes to Jupiter’s advances.
Chiron trines Saturn pound for pound.


It’s Chiron’s retrograde, so this is the Station.
Our Centaur activates Saturn, as he prepares to turn around.
Chiron/Saturn is a creative energy,
there is the depth of individualism stamped in that signature,
building it your own way, to last.


Happy Friday!!

don’t fight if you can help it!
But sometimes that fuse is short for a reason.
Value yourself and you’ll breathe easier!
Have a Beautiful Weekend!!

Love YOU!!!
