Mercury retrograde and the “Shadow Period”

Mercury will be retrograde between November 17th and December 7th 2018.

Thanks to the Internet, the magic of REAL astrology (as opposed to those Sun Sign horoscopes you still see everywhere) is spreading and the concept of Mercury retrograde has gone mainstream.  This is exciting since even people who profess not to “believe in” astrology often are aware that when Mercury is retrograde things often don’t operate as we expect them to.  Machinery glitches, communication breakdowns, an epidemic of “but I thought you said…” – all are widespread under the influence of Mercury retrograde.

In classical astrology, Mercury is said to be “debilitated” when it is retrograde; it doesn’t operate as it normally does which is to facilitate communication and messaging, as well as daily routines, short distance travel and plans of all kinds.  As most of you know, I don’t particularly care for these ideas of positive and negative as they cause us to miss out on the benefits offered by astrological factors that we normally consider negative such as Mercury retrograde and Saturn and Pluto transits.  I view the retrograde phase of a planetary cycle as being a part of the natural ebb and flow of nature.  The waves of the ocean flow towards the beach, and then they must flow back to the ocean before returning to the sand.  The joyful warm days of summer give way to the bitter cold days of winter’s hardship.

When Mercury is retrograde, it’s not uncommon to run into problems.  Contracts written when Mercury is retrograde often have to be renegotiated.  Plans made often have to be revised.  Travel reservations are often stymied. Communication breakdowns are common.  Mercury retrograde periods are excellent fr some things though – they are perfect for review […]

Jupiter in Sagittarius: Prepare for adventure! November 2018 – December 2019

Jupiter in SagittariusJupiter left intense Scorpio for sunny Sagittarius on November 8, 2018, a planetary shift heralded around the world with the superlatives you would associate with a planet as big as Jupiter entering a sign as happy as Sagittarius.  Astrological headlines declare “Outgoing, lucky and limitless”; “the upgrade your life needs”; “Getting to Yes”; “taking you on a beautiful adventure.”   Everyone loves Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, luck and abundance.

Looking back to 2007

Because Jupiter rules Sagittarius its power to expand and open up new possibilities can operate unimpeded by other influences. Jupiter in Sagittarius seeks adventure, prosperity, faith and meaning in life. Jupiter generally takes a full year to go through each sign in the zodiac, and last traversed through Sagittarius in 2007.  At the time, Pluto (obsession, destruction, regeneration) was finishing its journey through Sagittarius where it had overseen an obsession with bigger houses, more money, self-help and a relentless optimism that took a dive when Pluto moved into Capricorn in 2008.  It’s difficult to separate the influence of Jupiter in Sagittarius that year from the Pluto problems, but one thing we know for sure is that every aspect of astrological archetypes has a dark side and a light one.  Saturn, that devil of hardship and difficult lessons, bestows strength and the ability to master the physical universe.  And Jupiter, the light of beneficence, can encourage so much faith and confidence that we don’t see the train coming as we veer off the track.

About Jupiter

Jupiter in the birthchart or by transit provides the impulse for us to grow and evolve. It is involved in the realm of faith and the search for meaning in life, and in doing so there is a bit of restlessness […]

Scorpio New Moon at astrological Samhain: A trip between the worlds

Scorpio New Moon

The New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th which coincides this year with astrological Samhain, the ancient cross-quarter holiday of power at 15 degrees Scorpio.Samhain is one of the “cross-quarter” holidays that fall between the Solstices and Equinoxes.  Astrologically, the Solstices and Equinoxes mark the entry of the Sun into the cardinal signs of initiation: Aries at Spring, Cancer at Summer, Libra at Autumn and Capricorn at Winter.  The cross-quarter periods occur at 15 degrees of the fixed signs, with Samhain in the sign of Scorpio, the sign that corresponds to death and rebirth.  The veils between the worlds are at their thinnest at this time, and our intuition is heightened so when we combine this with the power of the New Moon to create and begin anew we can see how magical this particular New Moon will be.

The Scorpio New Moon is all about diving deep into our passions, desires, and the power of our emotions.  Under Scorpio’s tutelage we surrender any veneer of who and what we think we should be, and embrace our true selves with acceptance and honesty.  This New Moon includes a blessing of Neptune  to open the doors of perception and enhance our divine connection as well as our creativity, and the New Moon ruler (Mars) harmonizes with Venus to create balance between yin and yang.  Venus and Ceres combine to enhance our desire to take care of ourselves and find a peaceful easy balance within.  However, the Black Moon Lilith aligns with Mars which will activate the dark side of the Scorpio New Moon, aiding in the integration of the shadow Self.

The effect of the New Moon generally begins a few days before the lunation and lingers for a few days […]

Uranus square the lunar nodes: Change is inevitable, progress is optional

Over the past week, and throughout November, the planet Uranus and the lunar nodes will be locked in a square (90 degree) formation.  The nodes of the Moon are points where the journey of the Moon through the sky crosses the path of the Sun, and these points are associated with the soul’s journey from past to future.

I view the outer planets as transformational forces which inspire us, activating something in the personality in order to create change where change is necessary.  Uranus is the planet of change itself – under the influence of Uranus we tend to become restless with anything in our lives that feels stuck, and sometimes we find ourselves faced with shocking events that serve to knock us from our comfort zone.

Our lives are built on patterns of expectation.  We expect that we will wake up in the morning, and that we will follow our normal routines during the day.  Uranus tends to break apart those expectations, at best helping us to see our lives through new eyes.  At its most difficult, Uranus can bring about a drastic change that forces a change in perspective.

Planetary cycles occur on several planes at once.  The alignment of the planets in the sky (which I write about in my Planetary Illuminations newsletter) affect everyone on the planet on a macro level.  When these alignments interact with the planets in our own natal chart, they stimulate change or evolution on a much more personal level.  There are other layers of planetary influence as well: to our relationships, to our communities and countries, to our evolving selves.

The current square between Uranus and the lunar nodes could bring about surprising events in our lives that shake us […]

Musings on hate, violence and healing

In the early days after I started this blog in 2005 I found it interesting to profile people in the news.  Primarily this was for my own interest in order to explore the motivations of people who do weird things, but also to illustrate in real life the value of astrological understanding.  In attempting to understand the minds of criminals, I would often profile individuals who committed appalling acts of violence.  But over the past few years, the number of mass shootings has increased to such a degree that I can no longer bear to analyze the charts of those who commit such heinous acts.

In reflecting with dismay and horror at the synagogue shootings this week I realized that it’s more than just guns that are the problem, at this point.  Yes, America has a gun problem as I have written about many times including here.  But the real problem is the level of hate that has been unleashed in this country and in other countries as a world that has become too small for the 7.2 billion people that reside here.  The globalism and loosening of borders when Pluto was in Sagittarius between 1995 and 2008 encouraged immigration into countries such as Germany and England which needed workers.  Under Pluto’s trip through Sagittarius, the sign of travel and embrace of other cultures, globalism brought a rich new tapestry of music, food and culture into nations whose cultures, unlike the US which is famously a “melting pot” of different nationalities, were already well defined and well established.  Additionally under the Sagittarian influence the spread of social media (Sagittarius is associated with both media AND social interaction) took a secure foothold in international culture.  By […]
