The Sun, Mercury, Uranus cluster in Taurus makes May Day’s lust for radical physical change front and center. We become more aware of systems out of balance, our part to play. This cluster is in a wide trine to Jupiter in a separating conjunction to recently turned retrograde Pluto in Cap. Pluto’s response to the need for radical change is to over focus on radical, pretending the change is whether you can go get your hair cut or not, instead of securing free healthcare for you.  Jupiter helps to carry the message. As does Neptune at the midpoint of Pisces between the two. It’s a tight struggle  that is mostly stalemated, though the Cap team keeps steeling from larder, distracting with arguments about the right to a haircut.

The May Queen (Venus in Gemini) shows up a little cranky or utterly frivolous in a tight square with Neptune in Pisces. Sorry to say she is out of sorts and needs a damn good cry about it.

The Beltane celebration song happens between the Moon and Mars in a dynamic opposition that can be lusty and sensuous, deep and impactful OR display the long argument between Patriarchy and the Commons – that’s an argument I do not have to detail for you. Instead let’s invoke the sweet spot between change and action that equals authentic accountability. Begin the long sweet lovemaking with the earth there. You don’t have to know the answers, the destination or even how you will get there. The waxing moon will take care of that. Trust that Mars in innovative Aquarius already has some ideas.

While the shuffle and scuffle of the political sphere continues its long slow train wreck, inspiration is seeding itself. Don’t be pulled into the maelstrom created by the over-culture. Find your own practice and let it be a counter against that drama. A singing, laughing, dancing, sweating, crying, dreaming point that easily links into the whole, like a healthy cell among the many. Hold strong. The tipping point nears.

Two weeks ago the inner planets clustered together in Cap, Aqu, Pis and Aries, one quarter of the chart was incredibly weighted. The crosstalk was so LOUD, so outrageous and so misinformed. Of course you wear a mask! Of course this is deadly. Of course we are ill prepared. Since that time those inner planets have moved on, spreading our across the wheel/globe. Sound familiar? Messages have become more distinct. Its slow though.

On April 7 the full Super Moon in Libra and the Sun in Aries are going to square the Pluto Jupiter conjunction. Eris, Goddess of Discord, is also in Aries, in the midst of a long square to Pluto. All of this is coming at the Pluto/Jupiter conjunction from both sides. It’s a wonder to consider if the center will hold. Fingers will be pointed from every side. Saturn in Aquarius is clear, look to new leadership now. Look to who is leading well, with clarity, towards a common good. Humans are numb from the onslaught.

Meanwhile Neptune and Mars in Pisces make that near impossible. Everything is distorted, unclear, and fouled. Listen to experts, not pie in sky con men who only want to look good.

Let feeling and thought be fluid.
Let yourself be a waterfall.
Nothing has to stick right now .

Uranus in Taurus, our bodies are either, home, waiting it out as requested/suggested or we are out in the world needlessly.

The vibration of the world is shifting. There is magic to be found here. Underneath the worry, the despair, proportionate to society failing you. Big Evolutionary Revolutionary Change magic.


Mercury Conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Lies, lies and more lies.

Aries Sun trine Moon in Leo, Uranus in Taurus squares the Moon. If the above is obfuscation and conspiracy, consider this to be the noise that keeps the truth from being heard clearly, that includes the truths being shouted, and whispered, into the melee as well.

Its better now than it was. People are starting to see truth, rather than hear it. Evidence based practice will win eventually. It may be a slow motion tidal wave of AH-HA as people start to die in places that have been acting immune to everything.

Pluto conjunct Jupiter at 24 Capricorn. The beginning of the next Pluto/Jupiter cycle. Short term, Comeuppance and coverup. Expect more of the same. There may be some revelations. Definitely there will be more dismantling of gov’t services, and the current services proving their inability to handle large stresses. Trust that a ton of ugly bad shit is happening behind the scenes, gov’t or otherwise. Long term this is political and judicial transformation with ambition at its core.

Of the flip side of this coin:

Mercury and Neptune together are working to combat this virus in the lab and the dreamtime. Mars in Aquarius is about to sextile Chiron in Aries and that is also innovative, forward thinking and not afraid to try. Venus enters Gemini to trine Saturn at 0 degree Aquarius. This is an excellent conspiracy for planning, visioning what matters and means the most to you. Its fast moving, the effects could be immediate or long term, past when you will remember what you do today. Its spring, dream big of a bright future. Know it will require hard work.

We are all seeking Grace in this time. Just make sure you are telling the truth. That is the job of humans who are interested in the COMMON GOOD. Truth. Kindness. Generosity. It’s hard to find in the charts of the these days. Everything is under the influence of lies, the telling, the believing of them, denying them, reacting to them.

So here we are at the end of time. Together. Like we planned.
The warning bell has sounded. It’s been clanging noisily in the background for
40 years, but whatever. The tune changed. Got real The doomsday clock has begun
to ring the Midnight hour. Cinderella has realized her error lingering over a
suit. She’s on the rundown the stairs hoping the magic holds even as sparking
shoe flies off Seriously girl, those were not made for running.

Right now, today, Saturn’s Day, March 21, 2020, Saturn
hovers at 29 degrees Capricorn.

Saturn. Time’s Master. A Founder of Civilization. Authority.
Law. Academia. Also restraint, perseverance, and judgement, it rules Cap.
Capricorn is about (hidden) resources, power, money, control. Pluto has been
activating all of Capricorn bad behavior cheating, backroom deals, playing both
sides since 2008. Much of Saturn’s previous transits through Scorpio and Sage
have felt like it was aiding and abetting Pluto as together they showed the
failings of a Supremacist society, while also amping up all the isms. In
January 2019 Saturn walked onto the scene wearing a different suit to see how
its all been working out.

These weeks now are the comeuppance of that event. Patriarch
in the form of dictators, Wounded Kings and Pompous clowns everywhere are
tested by al they have wrought as we ling in this last degree.

You can see it in the overcuture/ Now, let’s talk about you.
In these last days of Saturn’s transit through Cap look deep into your
nature/navel to find your own Wounded King. Wholeness is a process, we do not
arrive, and so it is done. Like balance, it is not static, it is always in
motion,. Like the breath, it is life. Nor do we discard, disown, disavow the evil
in our hearts. Nope. Sorry. We bring that into the fold as we can. We offer
empathy to ourselves and being the journey towards course correction. As we
gain skill in that endeavor we become braver, more willing to test for and then
beat out the dross, Annealing ourselves towards the best of who we are.

In the last hours of the dark moon in Pisces with Saturn at
29 degree Capricorn go to the Crossroads, stand naked before your Godds and
know what you have wrought.

At 3 degrees Uranus is getting some growth, think the young bull, the yearling. You are learning this way of consciousness, consciousness is a force of its own. Let interest and curiosity be your guide through the bigger picture. Go easy. The energy out there is kinetic. Like the Magician, you can ground within it, learning to wield it, as well as follow it.

Mercury is deep in its pre-retro shadow. A week from today it goes retro. Know that the coming errors are opportunities; for what, remains to be seen. Also, choices long put off are rearing their heads again. Oh, and Mercury in Pisces is opposing today’s Virgo Moon so that’s emotional overthinking right there. Combined with the presence of Neptune in Pisces, not far off but not yet conjoined, everything is clouded, unclear and damp. The empath in each of us cannot be deluded by such obfuscation. Our intuitive selves are working overtime to compute, analyze and respond to the things happening in the world right now. Take as much time as you need to chew your cud in the field. Feel your way forward.

Yesterday, the Virgo Moon, moving quickly, trined 3 degree Uranus in Taurus. Yes, it felt like an emotional hit from the back of the head. Might have been the past reminding you, I’m still here, and you still have feelings about me. Or, depending on placement in your chart, it might have been the emotional present saying, Pay attention! Either way, consciousness was the key. Do not look away when it hurts. Everything hurts right now. The way is through, not head in the sand, cowering. If you do that, the pain will go numb for a time but eventually, it will be painful again.

Today the Moon trines Jupiter in Cap. More talking points. Soundbytes. If you’ve got stuff to sell, this is a good day to do it. If you are in the market to buy beware of the sales pitch. Writers, write. Artists, art. Even if its not the project you are supposed to be working on. Professionals, professional on but know the cogs in the machine keep it running. You too may want to look at different projects today.

You might just spit out the the truth you’ve been keeping silent under your tongue in a long attempt to prop up your status quo. You may or may not even like that status quo but the unknown alternatives keep you trying to support the support you’ve been supporting for support.

Ah, now there is there thing. You may have to piece that out to really understand what you are doing. Its a good day to untangle knots of thought, communication, and idea. However, once loose of the knot, those threads can easily tangle again, so go slow when you want go fast. Be methodical and take notes.

This transit is momentary. The undercurrents of the Pluto/Saturn conjunction (still at 23 and 25 Cap) are strong and pulling even as they separate. That status quo is an ongoing pull between the rules we have chosen to live by, and the not yet seen new options, but felt deep in our bones and psyche. Today Mercury and Uranus conspire in the depths to discuss those options. I don’t know if today is the day you toss the towel in the air and walk your talk your way, or if you do the Piscean swim, continue circling from both directions at once. Just take the moment to know what you are choosing. You don’t have to change anything right now, but you can. The medicine is owning your choices, your words, your doings.

On Politics: The spin right now is nonstop, Just don’t even. Go sit in nature, listen to the buzz that is happening there. Its way more interesting than the 4th Estate. Trump wants bread and circuses (the life blood of the Rome as it fell). Peolsi even upped him on that though. You don’t have to like to appreciate her ability to one up him over and over again. Notice that the Senate will vote next week to convict or dismiss, as the gap between Pluto and Saturn grows. Not until April can we expect Justice to come into the room when Jupiter conjoins Pluto at 24 Cap. 


We start the year off with the old year lingering. We’ve got the 5 planets
in Cap, the stellium is live and happening now, the conjunction tightens as we approach its exact point on January 12, 2020.

What we know: The totalitarian state is on the rise. Its ugh-ly out there folks. The infamous Oppressors are real, and are on the attack. Imperfect as they were, the successes of the last century are disappearing, failing. Judges collude with the defense. Comeuppance has left the room. At the Lofty Heights and Deep Below, Pluto is all brag about the bad guys. No one pays for their sins at this party. Saturn has fallen into the gutter with the King. Law has lost its virtue and so is no more.

What is coming: January 12, 2020. This transit is a one shot deal. Saturn will not retrograde over Pluto after this pass, as so many outer planet conjunctions offer. So, no ‘Third time’s a charm,’ Magic to play with, to practice over and have that third connect give you the ah-ha moment you’ve earned.

This time, this one, whether we feel it on the 12th or it just ripples out in a slow earthy way throughout the year, will change us. As if the last decade hasn’t. Wink. You know that was all just prep, right? Whether 2020 takes us to the streets or the big sigh of relief as democracy prevails through easier methods, the work is real. Change is necessary, but hard. You know this personally. Collectively its personal squared, times five-something billion. So yeah, hard work ahead. Bring hard hat, tools, and your best sense of humor.


Do you ask yourself what its like to live under a dictator? This is Saturn in Cap, educator and inquiring mind, turned to politics.

Pluto looks back deftly and a little too darkly, “Let me show you.”

They are both wily old goats prancing deftly from peak to peak. Too smart for their own good, or the even the more slippery Mer-Goat swimming away fast. Politic and Law are like that right now. These are slippery times. For all the Capricorn earth influences, water has a (un)fair hand in this too.

Watch yourselves. Be smarter than those around you, to everyone’s betterment. Words and Deeds matter. Make them matter to you, cause that is where the buck stops. Open minds and firm boundaries are a peak of practice.


So here’s the good news that I don’t see anyone talking about, on January 11, 2020, Uranus goes direct, making all the planets direct for a month. In Feb and March Mercury does its retro, but after that, we get two more months of every planet direct. We haven’t had that in a long time. I’ve been watching. We’ve slogged through the last years under collective retrogrades. With only short respites of all planets direct.

2020 just might be the old rich white patrician’s final stand. Let us not forget that Jupiter is also transiting Capricorn. As things progress through Spring into Summer, Jupiter and Saturn go retro again, going over the last months ground. Which is good. Jupiter and Saturn. Justice and the Lord of Time really don’t like to be messed with. It’s true their sense of SELF has waned in the last years, who reads philosophy in high school anymore? You cannot steal from time and the Earth is still Mother of us all. Justice will catch up. For all that I’m not sure we see a change in much this year. Leave it to say Law and Justice each have their day and land into history.

By September, the outer planets are back in retrograde and the future is being decided. Yikes! doesn’t take an astrologer to tell you that. On November 3, 2020, election day in the states, Mercury stations direct. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all direct, implying that they have had their say. Justice and the Law have played their parts and are no longer driving the show. Uranus, Neptune and Mars remain retro. It’s up to the people. Can the majority see through the haze and blur, hear over the white noise of political drone and see what is the common good? Can we understand the Common Good to include our neighbor as well as ourselves?

A year from now on Solstice Night 2020, Jupiter and Saturn take hands at 0 degree Aquarius. This is hope, the long vision of Justice and the Beauty of Time.



New Moon in Sagittarius

Make an arrow of what you most desire, long for, where and how you want the world, your world, the world around you, the greater world, to be a year from now. Vision it. Go wild. Dream big. Its Sagittarius we are talking here! Use all the things at your disposal

Your sadness, your fury, your love, your hope, your amazing imagination, your willingness to grow, your breath, your voice, the energy of crafting, the energy of the earth. Its all been swirling and percolating these long months of 2019. Now is not the time to hold back.

Gather it all up, together or piece by piece, and and craft yourself one fine arrow made of will/desire/hope.

Whether you know it or not, you’ve got a good strong, well strung, bow right there at your side. Its made of all the success your walked into and through. Own it. Reach for it. Place that arrow and fire that baby into the next year, the time past elections however they may go, the time when work is revealed and known.

And see it go, firey and bright, dark and secret. See it disappearing past the known world, into the future, the place of possibility.
Blessed be.

This is a fast moment in time. Love and Weird are in the air. Leo and Aquarius – a dynamic duo of glamour and geek. Its a force for good to love what the overculture denigrates. Get it on. Love your inner Freak and taste freedom in your bones. Be kind and gracious and goofy. Don’t fight it, The back drop of these days, times, are none of those. You can be a counter force to cruelty. Be courageous when you don’t feel brave. It wouldn’t be courage if it felt safe and easy.

Sample Text

Its simple but very real. We all have OPINIONS about the last few days. You can already hear them echoing in repetition. The Libra moon will bring critical thinking into play, showing us the work is not the opinion itself but the unpacking of the opinion. Merc and Plu are in Capricorn, so yes, the halls of power will equally echo in repetition. May Libra moon allow the wise to prevail. Uranus stations retrograde today, Jupiter stations direct, maybe something will change as these two planets revisit their positions of the last 7 and 3 three months respectively. Uranus turned retrograde in the first week of January, so you can see what I mean when I say we have a lot ground to go back over, politically as well as personally.
