Hello world!

This site will bring you some interesting and timely posts about what is going on in the Heavens — I love studying astrology, and I enjoy passing on the information I have gleaned from the moving planets in aspect to the sun and moon and each other.  Even if you feel this kind of post isn’t for you — if you give it a try, you might find it amusing, informative, downright accurate, or just a good way to pass a couple of lazy minutes on your computer. 

I have found over the years that much of what goes on in the ether does affect the happenings here on planet Earth — much depends on the sign you were born under and what aspects are in your own personal natal chart.  You can get your natal chart free from many sites on the internet — and learning where your sun and moon are located, along with the sign that was rising at the time of your birth will give you a heads up as to what cycle you are now going through. 

There are many cycles that the planets bring to us, Saturn, for instance (I call it the “learning” planet — has a cycle of approximately 28 to 30 years) — by the time we are 30 we have experienced the planets influence in each house of our natal chart.  It’s no wonder that the Hippies of the 60’s quipped “Don’t trust anyone over 30” — we are changed because of our having been through the many and varied, sometimes difficult lessons of Saturn throughout our charts.

Also there is a magnificent opposition from the planet Uranus at age 42 (give or take a year) that challenges us — can we say “mid-life crisis”?  This year is often fraught with changes that we might be less that anxious to have happen.  Yet the planet Uranus doesn’t bring a change unless it is going to build us a newer and stronger foundation.  It is part of the building blocks of our journey throughout this lifetimes path. 

We can accept and grow with the help of the Universal forces, or we can challenge the energies and find ourselves at odds with our true and natural path.  In astrology there is a saying “As above — so below” … this doesn’t mean we have no free will — it only shows us that by following the natural harmony of the galaxy, we can flourish and meet all of our expectations — or we can rale against the forces and be held accountable in many formidable ways.  The stars may impel, but they do not compel any actions or beliefs. 

The world is our oyster, there is so much for the taking, so much beauty, knowledge, fun and happiness to be garnered from our lifetime here, if we but choose to be aware and partake of its bounty.

I hope you will join me in opening up the mysteries and secrets of the Universe as we all travel on this tiny blue planet called Earth — it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get it right, we have the choice, the right, and the means to become our best selves, and to find our place in the Universe.  Lets all gear up and promise ourselves we will choose to become the ultimate human being we are meant to be — awesomeness is an option — let it be you!

Welcome fellow searchers for the truth — it is out there…


Lady Venus Enters Sagittarius — October 18th 2016

Lady Venus is always happy to enter the sign of Sagittarius — although a Fire sign, Venus seems to be able to use this fiery energy to exploit Her own agenda. On the 18th at 2:01 AM EST (add one hour for DST) — Lady Venus leaves sensual and sexy Scorpio to move forward into playful  and vivacious Sagittarius until her short reign here is over on November 11th at 11:55 PM EST, and She moves on to staid and cautious Capricorn.

So, if we want to ensure that we get the most out of Lady Venus in Sagittarius, and the saucy and spicy vigor that comes with this placement, we should make our plans now to use this vivacious transit of Lady Venus to our best advantage. Lady Venus in Sagittarius will give all of us a run for the money — in Sagittarius Lady Venus becomes playful, spirited, and a totally flirtatious vixen. Lady Venus loves the lighthearted and frisky aura of Sagittarius allowing Her to throw caution to the wind and use her more coquettish persona in attracting those of like mind.

It seems that Lady Venus in Sagittarius is free to let her hair down, walk a bit on the wild side and allowed to show her adventurous nature! She is able to tap into her deep well of fanciful ideas and offbeat notions, when she is feeling that surge of Sagittarian elan, the World is Her oyster! Carefree and willing to set off on an adventure at a moments notice, our Lady Venus will have the time of her life when under the spell of Sagittarian frivolity and impetuousness. Still our Lady Venus retains Her caring, compassionate and loving characteristics — indeed they may be enhanced because Sagittarius is also a very caring if a bit more casual sign. Sagittarians are in love with life — wanting to squeeze every precious moment out of their experience here on Earth, feeling a karmic tie to those they encounter. Together, Venus in Sagittarius are family oriented, are outgoing and friendly, and love to engage in idealistic banter and intellectual conversations. Always with an opinion on any subject, our Sagittarian brethren will be informed about all things sporting, political, contemporary and timely depending on their interests. Always ready to defend the underdog, Sagittarians usually have a soft-spot for those in need, or who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own. This combination of Lady Venus compassion and idealism, combined with Sagittarius outgoing and engaging personality rocks!

As Lady Venus transit of Sagittarius moves swiftly forward, we can use the lighthearted and frivolous energy to enhance our own lives with more outgoing compassion toward our fellow-man. Look to your chart to see where Sagittarius lives and there will be the focus of this wonderful duo bringing their unique sense of living life to the fullest, loving everyone equally, and embracing the concept that we are all our brother’s keeper!

On the 26th Lady Venus sextiles Jupiter in Libra bringing us a morning filled with good feeling — we may find we connect with a certain someone, or it might be that our ideas at a meeting are met with approval and support, and we can promote ourselves with a feeling of confidence and strength. Enjoy the power surrounding you today and work within the energy field of protection, love and beauty. The 29th bring Lady Venus in contact with Saturn in Sagittarius, allowing us to “see” things in a realistic and more appropriate manner — this early evening match-up may bring us to realize that our relationship needs work or perhaps is ready to be ended. The 30th we find Pluto in the mix and that gets our juices going in analyzing just what we want out of life — but we know that Lady Venus in Sagittarius won’t let us stew about any negativity too long.On November 5th a beautiful aspect to Uranus in Aries in the wee hours of the morning will shake up the status-quo, what might seem like an emergency will turn out to be a stroke of luck for some. Entering Capricorn on the 11th we find Lady Venus again changing her persona to a more mature and stable format — but wherever Lady Venus takes up residence, we will find more beauty, compassion and love in our chart and our life!

Hint — Find your Lady Venus in Sagittarius love at any sporting event — especially if there are big crowds of loyal fans, at a charity auction, on the ski slopes and apres ski, at the Scottish Highland Games, at any movie with a lot of action, at a tailgate party or barbecue, on a mountain trail, fishing on the ocean, buying hiking shoes, at a sports-car show, driving a convertible, volunteering at a homeless shelter, at the zoo, hosting a neighborhood block party, and bringing fresh pastries to work!



Jupiter in Libra Through the 9th to 12th Zodiac Houses — September 9th 2016 to October 10th 2017

Completing the Zodiac Circle of Houses we will peruse the 9th through 12th Houses — Jupiter in Libra will bring its own kind of beauty, excesses and balance to each of these Houses according to the Planets that might live there and their placement within the Circle. These Zodiac Houses are important because they can show us our educational interests or goals, our spiritual needs and desires, our yearning to travel long distances (9th House) — also, the 10th House holds our social standing and perhaps our career goals, the 11th House is where our hopes and dreams reside along with our friends, and the 12th House is the karmic  House of self-undoing, hospitals, prisons and any place of confinement.

So we will see what might transpire throughout the transit of Jupiter in Libra’s more optimistic outlook and genuine ability to see both sides of a question — we have an entire year to use the brilliance and balance of Jupiter in Libra for our own agenda — don’t miss out on this once in 12 year occasion!

Jupiter in Libra in the 9th House – The 9th House of the Zodiac holds so many variants of our lives — here we find our higher educational goals, our spirituality and religiosity, our desire for long distance travel (although) opposite the 3rd House perhaps short trips too! Also opposite our 3rd House may bring some concern about siblings, old neighbors, in-laws, and in general some unease about those relatives you may not have seen for some time. But we digress — the 9th House is such a busy House, those who may have children looking into colleges will have a boost from Jupiter in Libra allowing you to balance the pros and cons of each school. Also, Jupiter in Libra may help to clear up some legal issues that have been pending for some time with a positive outcome. On a high note, that long-dreamed about vacation could come to pass this year — especially if there is some higher purpose in your journey — seeing elderly relatives, volunteering for some social or educational activity, or maybe just that once in a lifetime trek that you truly deserve.

All of these possibilities can become your reality this year. Find a way to enhance anything you’ve planned by looking ahead and finding those extras that may help to either get you to your goal, or might allow you to take a longer and more interesting journey. Along those lines, you may find that someone is willing to help you in your endeavors. A mentor, or friend who is interested in the same field might be a source of information that will help, or one who knows  a way to get you to the right place at the right time.

During this passage of Jupiter in Libra you may find a source of new spirituality — perhaps attending a new church or temple, or just by having that awe-inspiring moment in Nature that makes you realize that life is precious and worth living to the full. Or it may be that you find re-consecration for yourself in your present beliefs that open a whole new area of  interest wherein you find yourself doing meaningful work — mentoring or volunteering. Also, you may find that you are fascinated by philosophy and begin to study the elder’s works. Or you may find a New Age belief system that fits your spiritual and idealistic needs. Be prepared to be amazed and awed by your new view of life and love.

Jupiter in Libra will pique your interest in learning new things, will find you perusing libraries for information, or perhaps looking up your ancestors to find out just where they came from and how they managed to survive and thrive throughout the ages. The 9th House holds so many varied and stimulating areas that with the help of Jupiter in Libra you will be amply provided with the energy to find your bliss!

Jupiter in Libra in the 10th House — Here we have the pinnacle of our charts (the Mid-Heaven) where our careers are located, our social standing (popularity) is enhanced, and where we might find our dominant parent, also any government associations, our responsibility to our families, our companies, and our personal goals. Here we can find any honors or adulation we might receive for work well done, or for service to our country. Our ambition and motivation to get ahead resides herein. Opposite the 4th House of home, you may find that your zeal to get to the top of the corporate ladder is interfering with your duties to your family and home life. There will always be some conflict between these two Houses, the 4th being our foundations and early childhood memories — and the 10th House that holds our own personal ambitions and need for social standing. This antagonistic relationship can often be our undoing when trying to balance our responsibilities. However, with Jupiter in Libra in residence, there should be some happy way to find an amenable reality. Perhaps you will find a way to work from home more — or find some extra time for one-on-one time with children and/or spouse (so important).

Depending on your age, this could be a wonderful year for you to push your own agenda to reach your personal goals, get that promotion, upgrade your domicile, or find new ways of melding your work and home obligations. Jupiter in Libra is a wonderful chance for you to take measure of where you are and where you want to be — in 5, 10 or 20 years from today. Perhaps a 12-year plan might work as Jupiter will once again be in Libra coming full-circle in the year 2028! You may laugh, but timing is everything when looking ahead, and with Jupiter in Libra in the 10th House, you know that good things, happy times, and success can be yours. Working within the confines of the Planetary movements and transits is one way to prepare yourself for what is coming up in the future. Just knowing when the good-luck Planet will be in your 10th House is power and time for preparation!

In opposition to the 4th House, you may find yourself selling your childhood home, or resettling elderly parents into an assisted living arrangement. You also may realize that time is quickly slipping into the future and those goals you want to reach will have to be intentionally planned for, if you are going to realize them in a clearly defined amount of time. Now, with the help of Jupiter in Libra’s energy and ability to get everything into balance, this is the time for you to promote yourself and your ideas. Bring the gift of Jupiter’s largess to yourself and your loved ones by striving for the best and most satisfying lifestyle you can hope to find. Remember to include all those who have helped you succeed and you will receive your generosity back ten-fold. Make this is your year to shine — become the leader, innovator, mover and shaker of your field and reap your Jupiter in Libra rewards.

Jupiter in Libra in the 11th House — The Eleventh House holds our dearest and closest friends, (don’t be surprised when you realize many of them are in the same Zodiac sign). It also harbors our fondest hopes and wishes — not necessarily our goals, but those familial and acquaintance connections that bring us that feeling of belonging to a tribe, group, clan, society, or community in which we feel comfortable and at home. Also many of our social contacts will be found herein, social/country clubs, factions, families, cliques, workplaces, and any group to which we might feel we are a part. Traditions are important and a sense of togetherness, attachment and devotion will bring us to those whom with we have a karmic tie.

With Jupiter in Libra taking up residence here, we may find our social schedule will be filled with parties, organizational meetings, work-related conferences, family get-togethers, and gatherings of many kinds. With Jupiter in Libra, I’m sure you already sense that balancing your time will be of utmost importance. Indeed, Jupiter often brings too much of a good thing — but Libra sees the difficulty in organizing your personal, work, and companionable times. Try to find a way to attend as many functions as you can, but be aware of the consequences of missing an important family or friend’s event.

Also with Jupiter in Libra, you may be re-evaluating your acquaintances, friends and/or companions throughout this year, perhaps realizing that many of your many “friends” are hangers-on, or just not in the same space as you are now. Not that you should eliminate these folks from your life, but perhaps find a different way to interact with them on a more flexible schedule. You may also find some new acquaintances seem to be on your personal wave-length and you are clicking as if you were friends for years. Take your time in embracing these people until you have known them a little longer — sometime that first blush of meeting has a romantic or serendipitous start that won’t hold up over time. Still — opposite the 5th House of romance — this may be your year to meet the one!

If you are feeling a little sidelined by some old pals, try to reconnect now while Jupiter is smiling down upon you — it may have been that they got caught up in their own issues and didn’t want to burden you with what was going on. Allow them to vent, explain or clear up any misunderstandings and be open to forgiveness. Of course — friendship is a two-way street and if you have been doing all of the calling, it may be time to cut those strings. It’s a work in progress when we choose to allow people into our lives, there is an ebb and flow to our relationships — sometime there are those who appear just when we need them — never to be heard from again. And you, yourself may be that very same person to someone else.

Think of all the ways that Jupiter in Libra could influence your life for the better, and work toward those goals that you truly want to come to fruition. With the upcoming Holiday seasons, it is the perfect time for you to reconnect with those you love and who love you. Don’t let this unique time-span pass by without reviewing your connections — whether family, friends, acquaintances, or companions. Make this the year you find those who will always have your back, who love you unconditionally and who will be there for you forever.

Jupiter in Libra in the 12th House — Our 12th Zodiac House holds so many secrets — our past lives, our own fears, doubts and uncertainties — also our personal misgivings, our suspicions and our inner worries. It is called the House of Self-Undoing, because so often it is here that we hold on to old wounds, we cannot let go of our inner fears, and we self-deprecate. Here in the 12th House is that tiny whispering voice we hear that berates us with its constant barrage of anxiety and irrelevance . Time for that to be put to a stop! Now with Jupiter in Libra it is time to realize your self-worth — not with overtones of grandeur — but with a true account of just how good, smart, loyal, understanding, loving and caring you are! Stop listening to those naysayers, or critics or jealous cohorts  — and also stop berating yourself with those childhood issues, or words from that teacher who should have retired years earlier, or from any source that has allowed you to feel you were less than you are — indeed — sometimes it takes years to overcome some bullying experience, or nasty comments from an inferior human who just wanted to make themselves feel better, or a trauma that was not your fault.

Now is the time, with Jupiter in Libra to find your true balance in this lifetime, your true bliss, and your most evolved persona! Now may be the time for you to take a look back to see how far you have come in this lifetime. You are no longer that bullied child, the teacher’s whipping boy, or anyone’s punching-bag. Just the fact that you are a human-being gives you the right to feel proud, unique, individual, feeling, empathetic, and perhaps most of all respected and worthy of love.

Jupiter in Libra can free your mind and heart from all of the burdens you may have been carrying for years. There is a mystical light within you that needs to be seen — an inner beauty that will enrich all those who know you — and the knowledge that you are worthy, worthwhile, and a wonder to behold! Jupiter can bring a plethora of good feelings that will lift your heart and allow you to truly see yourself as the wonderful human being you are and have been. Libra opens our hearts to love, commitment and all of the beauty in this magnificent world we live in. Allow yourself to breathe in the heady ethereal vapors of life being lived to the full. Fill your heart and soul with the knowledge that you are as precious as any treasure on Earth — feel yourself filled with the enormous love that you so deserve. Opposite the 6th House, we may have to deal with an elderly parent or friend who needs extra care or should be in assisted living. Also, there may be a trip to a hospital to see someone who is ill or has had an unfortunate accident. Your usual helpful self will bring joy and comfort to those in need.

Often, our House divisions are not exact — i.e., they don’t go from zero degrees to thirty degrees, but rather flow into the next House — the 12th House will lead into the 1st House, and here lie your innate hopes and wishes — you might be able to feel the change when Jupiter in Libra moves into the 1st House, a subtle shift of priorities — and herein, you will be able to put forth your own dreams and desires for your future and the future of your loved ones. Use these transits of the Planets to your advantage, and let the Universe help you to be the best and most perfect YOU — that you can be! Release any old anger, fright, trauma or limitation you may feel — and find your new and renewed self! This could be the year that you find your true identity, your inborn spirit, and your soul-self — imagine how free and happy you will be when you shed those dark clouds from your life. Imagine Bliss!

October’s Astrological Activity – 2016

On October 1st we have a beautiful trine between Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, raising our compassion for others and bringing us some long desired connection with those who are important to us. However, on the 2nd — two aspects that may confuse and befuddle us are in motion, the Sun engaging Neptune, and Mercury with Uranus — this may bring some disconnect and distortion in our perception. Allow a day or so to pass before making any major decisions or beginning a new project if you can.

With Jupiter in Libra fully ensconced into the sign, we have a compassionate aura over us that can not only help us find our own inner beauty, but also to be able to see the beauty in others. This combination can also help us see our relationships with rose-colored glasses on, so try to be realistic when judging just how well your romance is going. We can, under Jupiter’s stay in Libra allow ourselves to see things as we want them to be, and not as they truly are. Indeed — whilst Jupiter is in Libra we should take a step back from making a long-term commitment unless we can observe the object of our affection with a cool and calculating eye to the future we might share. Write out the Pro’s & Con’s in a list and observe in black and white what each column might have to say. It’s your future and the future of all those in your care — be sure of any choices you make that may have a lasting effect on the quality of your life.

Retrograde Neptune in Pisces is allowing us to tap into our inner spirit, and bringing perhaps vivid dreams that will help give us some insight into what we truly need from those we love, from our leaders, and from ourselves. There is a kind of dance-macabre with Saturn in Sagittarius tweaking us going on in the ether that may confuse us and make us wary of moving forward — we must try to use even these trying aspects in our lives to find the balance and equanimity that is so important, if we are to evolve into an ever higher human being. Our duty to ourselves and our loved ones, is to always seek the highest level of understanding and compassion in dealing with our nearest and dearest. Our Karmic ties are those with whom we must find our way — our parents, grandparents and children should be those with whom we most interact with in order to fulfill our journey here on Earth. They are our most useful compass in this lifetime — they will help lead us to our destiny and our future purpose. We cannot emphasize enough how important your closest relationships mean — neglecting or not being 100% involved with our closest loved ones will mean returning to this mortal coil in yet another round of living and learning just what it is we need to become that shining star of evolutionary sanctity.

October’s New Moon isn’t until the 30th in the deliciously diabolical sign Scorpio which crests at 12:39 PM EST and will help enhance a dark and spooky Halloween night on the 31st, our Full Moon in Aries is on the 15th at 11:23 PM EST, since Aries is a rather aggressive sign, we all should be aware of any anger issues and those who may be out-of-control. As always forewarned is forearmed.

Lady Venus will enter Sagittarius on the 18th turning our seductive vamp into our flirtatious vixen. Lady Venus as always will be able to make Sagittarius Her own, and she will use the playfulness and happy-go-lucky mischievousness of this sign to engage one and all in inane chatter, rollicking adventures, and egregious pranks! Use the vivaciousness of Lady Venus in Sagittarius if you want to attract those who have a lighthearted spirit and want to live free of encumbrances. Wait until Lady Venus enters Capricorn to appeal to a more staid and serious type of connection.Those karmic relationships are truly guided by the stars — tune into each Planet as they enter new signs and begin to take on some of the characteristics of that sign. It is fascinating to see what a difference there can be just because of the Planet’s placement.

Mercury will enter Libra on the 7th bringing more diplomacy and balance into our lives — if you have something on your mind that you really want to get off your chest — this may be a good time to have that chat. Mercury in Libra has a calm sense of duty, of doing what is right, and being a good listener. Mercury is a go-getter, and is sometimes busy just to be busy — with Libra, there is more of a plan in order to get things done — although balance will be necessary in all phases of any agenda.

Other times to note are the 13th when Mercury in Libra squares Mars in Capricorn in late afternoon, this combo can foster rage and unreasonableness, especially in language — confrontations may be quite testy and it’s best to realize that the timing is not good to try to make your point. The 15th bring a Sun in Libra in opposition to Uranus, you can expect the unexpected to happen early in the morning — perhaps a wake-up call that gets your juices flowing. Venus enters Sagittarius on the 17th in the wee hours of the morning bringing us a more lighthearted and carefree Lady Venus. On the 20th Mercury in Libra opposes Uranus bringing the wee hours of the morning some upsetting action — however, you might find that a vivid dream brought you some interesting outside-the-box ideas that have merit.

The Sun enters Scorpio on the 22nd bringing thoughts of our loved ones to the fore — a good time to improve relationships within our familial realm. Mercury also enters Scorpio on the 24th adding to our ability to sharpen our tongues — beware of honing your speech too keenly. Venus squares Neptune on the 25th perhaps blurring our vision of what is going on in our world, or making everything seem rosy! Be sure to use your common sense before listening to some faulty promises and flawed ideas. Wait until the 26th when Venus is in good aspect to Jupiter which will give you a more honest outlook on your life and love. You may feel especially cheery this morning — as the clouds have disappeared and you have sunshine in your heart. The 27th brings Mercury into contact with the Sun mid-morning clearing the air and helping you make a decision that feels right. Mars rears a ruckus on the 28th by irritating Uranus late in the evening — the caveat here is not to take unnecessary chances  — do not drink and drive, don’t speed — and walk away from any who seem to be looking for a fight.

Lady Venus meets up with Saturn on the 29th in the early evening hours, be careful of who you trust, and if you are going out for the evening — make sure you are in control of your faculties — watch out for anyone who is overly protective or restrictive. Mercury trines Neptune early on Sunday the 30th before the New Moon in Scorpio — you may have some spiritual awakening, or just a nice service at your place of worship, and you feel enlightened and at peace.

Halloween bursts forth on the 31st with ghosties and goolies, witches and vampires, princesses and superheros, all having the time of their lives. This year Halloween is on a Monday a school night — so our trick-and-treaters will be out and about early! Such a joyous and gleeful night that is remembered for many years to come. I think my children all have fond memories of Halloween’s past — when they themselves were on the prowl for their favorite treats, and again when their own children were going out into the darkness to find their own treasures. So many costumes, so many happy occasions, so many years ago — my heart aches when remembering  those enchanting and effervescent times when we all were so very young!

Happy Halloween to one and all !


New Moon in Libra Reminder — September 30th 2016

Today is the day! At 7:13 PM EST (Add one hour for DST) you can write out your affirmations, desires and wishes in order to put your thoughts into the ether and have them manifest to become part of your reality. With Jupiter in Libra conjunct the New Moon we can use the immense power of mighty Jupiter, the inner strength and stamina of Libra, and the zest, creativity and innovation of the Moon itself when we write out our wishes.

This is an extraordinary occurrence, with our 2nd New Moon of the month to be able to write out our affirmations with the added dimension of Jupiter in Libra’s largess. Write out your wishes as soon after the New Moon crests if you can — that’s when it is the most powerful — and within the next 8 hours — but the intensity of this New Moon will be in effect for 24 hours after. If your birthday is on or near the 30th, you will be starting a new lunar cycle, so it is much more important for those folks to be sure to write out their own wishes.

Just imagine what would make your life and the lives of your loved ones better, more content, and enriched — and write out those wishes. It doesn’t matter what you wish for — but using the realms of the Moon, sign and Planet involved will make stronger connections. Jupiter has rulership over business, law, sports, higher education, religion, politics, and medicine. Libra’s realm is romance, marriage, social matters, beauty, flowers, and the arts. The Moon has to do with our home life,short journeys, water sports, swimming, and our emotions.

I hope everyone will take advantage of this moment in time to try and improve their life — it’s as easy as writing out a few wishes — try to be clear, include all aspects of your desire, and affirm your intent with the belief that you can influence your own life.

Good Luck — may the power of the Lights be with you in your quest. Peace!

Jupiter in Libra Through the 5th to 8th Zodiac Houses — September 9th 2016 to October 10th 2017

Heading into the Descendant side of the Zodiac Chart we encounter the 5th through 8th Houses — Jupiter in Libra will bring its unique combination of “More is Better” (Jupiter) and “Beauty and Balance” (Libra). Each has sway over some aspect within the rulership of the House wherein it will reside for the next 13 months. We also will take note of the opposite House — from whom we will hear! This should prove to be a year of whimsy, opportunity, and many good things happening in our lives — I, for one, look forward to enjoying this rollicking ride of Jupiter in Libra throughout the next year, so many possibilities — so little time. Enjoy!

Jupiter in Libra in the 5th House —  The Fifth House of the Zodiac has rulership over such divergent areas as speculation, gambling, romance, children, entertainment and artistic endeavors. Jupiter in Libra will enjoy their stay here because it beckons to them both in different ways — for Jupiter it’s the thrill of taking a chance, a love of the dramatic, and an affection for children (Sagittarians ruled by Jupiter, always seem to maintain an inner child-like quality). For Libra there is art to be revered and appreciated, romances that will possibly lead to marriage (a big Libra interest), and although games of chance are not her forte, she believes in balancing one’s hobbies or diversions, so that they don’t become an onus and burden not only for the participants but for their families.

Those who have strong or negative Planets in the 5th House can become hooked on taking chances — whether in the stock market or in Las Vegas. Libra will try to bring true balance whilst here, however, Jupiter is more a “go for broke” kind of guy! There will be struggles and a lot of back-and-forth as these two battle for a middle ground. Anyone who has the desire to take a chance with their money or any asset should think twice before allowing anyone to convince them of that “deal of a lifetime” — allow time before putting your hard-earned money into other peoples hands! Indeed, a sit back and observe attitude will serve you well while this duo resides in the 5th House.

The brighter side of Jupiter in Libra in the 5th House is that you may find that a longed-for child is on the way. The only caveat here is that there may be two! Also, a creative idea or artistic program will be sure to be successful — it’s time to find a way to express the inner you! Many opportunities may present themselves to you from friends who know about your talent, from acquaintances who have similar interests and the ability to help you introduce yourself to a gallery or playhouse, or you may find a way to promote your own interests on a larger scale to a larger audience. Don’t hide your light under a bushel, if someone compliments you on your innate abilities — accept the praise as your due — and find out how you may be able to stimulate more interest.

Since the 5th House is opposite the 11th House, we may also find some friends who are trying to undermine our good intentions to break a bad habit — or on the other hand you may have a lot of back-up in keeping on the straight and narrow. Either way by the end of this transit, you will know who your true friends really are. Now is the time to realign with your family if there is some separation, allow old issues to fall by the wayside, and consider creating a clean-slate for your familial relationships.

The cherry on top of the ice-cream sundae is romance — Libra will be bringing new love interests, and perhaps a soul-mate your way — the difficulty here is that Jupiter may proffer many romantic possibilities — and your job will be to choose carefully — and separate the wheat from the chaff. True love is out there and this may be the year you find that love of a lifetime. Be choosy but open to someone who isn’t your usual cup-of-tea! You might be in for a whirlwind romance! Enjoy!

Jupiter in Libra in the 6th House — This is such an important House that is often overlooked in the larger scheme of things. Our 6th House has rulership over our health (so important), our service to others (or our day-to-day jobs), our smaller pets, our dietary habits, getting the necessities of daily life, your co-workers, and those who depend on you for support, assistance or comfort. We can see that this area of our chart is complex and can sometime become overwhelming. Especially when there are health issues, and you are the one either ill or the caretaker of someone who needs daily care. The aspects in this House will influence much of your whole chart.

Now with the  beneficial Jupiter in Libra holding court here, we have a great deal of help in either coping with our issues, or in completely curing or clearing up what has been going on for some time. If you have been ill (or someone you love), there may be a silver lining in the situation being solved, healed, or mitigated while Jupiter in Libra beams their protective light down upon you. Also, if your job or work situation has been less than positive of late, this combo can bring you new opportunities for growth and balance in another field or area of interest. Be open to something you may not have thought about as a possibility, or been aware of, but is an prospect for you to pursue. If there has been an ongoing issue of ill-health, a new procedure or another point of view may be helpful in making inroads in improving the problem. Look into alternative ways of healing and dietary changes that may alleviate the issues.

Are work hours too long, too late or just grueling, look for other ways to earn the same or more income with less stress. There will be opportunities somewhere that you will find an alternative working environment that will be better for you both financially and emotionally. Of course, you will have to balance the facts about whatever openings are offered — you may not want to move to a different area, or you might feel that your skills won’t be used as effectively as you would wish. Take every new offer with an eye to the pros-and-cons of what you want out of life.

The biggest change that most anyone can probably make is to improve their diet and exercise routines. If you feel good, you can take on most any problem with a strategic plan to overcome the negatives and work on improving the positive things that will abound with Jupiter’s largess.

If you have small pets, or older animals — be sure to keep their yearly maintenance updated — and if you are thinking of adopting a pet — make sure that they will fit into the family dynamics in a way that will be beneficial to all who will be involved in their care. A pet can give so much love and affection to one and all if they are well-cared for and loved in return.

Opposite the 12th House, we may encounter some past issues that haven’t been resolved — our own limitations, our needs, past issues with family, jobs, or mistakes. Now is the time to clear out the detritus in our lives — but with an eye to not destroying everything we have built up over the years. Indeed, we must carefully begin to take responsibility for past mistakes (and if possible let them go or atone for them), find new ways to interact with loved ones if there has been a rift, and be aware that you may find yourself needing some help with a crisis of conscious or some underlying trauma you haven’t faced up to with truth and the actual facts. Clear your mind, heart and soul of any old sorrows you may be holding on to without real cause. Allow your body and spirit to be free of all past injustices. Free your soul — free your life! Let Jupiter in Libra bring you the balance you need and the beauty back into your life.

Jupiter in Libra in the 7th House — Our Seventh House holds our partners (both business and personal), teamwork, alliances of all sorts, and interaction with the public. This is a busy House and when a powerhouse of “alliances” like Jupiter in Libra land here you can bet that some change, improvement or action will be taking place. Sometimes when there is a negative Planet in residence here, one will find it difficult to communicate with one’s loved ones and partners, find that they choose the wrong partner over and over again. Often can’t seem to find that certain someone who will support them and love them with their whole heart. So often relationships are rocky when one of the more negative Planets are there in your birth chart and again if one moves there through transit. However, with Jupiter in Libra bringing their beneficial aura of beauty and balance, we could see improvements in our relationships, our business alliances, and generally in the people with whom we come into contact on a daily basis.

Since Jupiter is only in each sign for about a year every 12 years, this may be the best time for you to find a way to your best relationship. Think about your ideal partner and what their traits and habits would be like, and with the help of Jupiter in Libra, you could find that well-balanced and generous person sometime within this special year. Jupiter in Libra can bring an excess of largess, so you may find you have a few choices to make — be sure to take your time in really “seeing” the person you are interested in within the stark light of reality. Don’t allow yourself to squander time and emotion with those who are not worthy of your own high standards and morals. Libra brings beauty, brains and a certain joie de vivre into the mix, but we must be sure to “balance” this heady combination with loyalty, steadfastness, and truth! If you feel you have found your best match, it may be time to make a commitment to your future. However, be sure this is the right move — don’t dismiss a loved one’s protests if they have always had your back. Look deep into you inner spirit to find the truth — and only move on if all of your spidey-senses say it’s good to go! If you have any misgivings about the person you are thinking of committing your love to — give yourself the gift of time to figure it out. Don’t make any rash decisions — stick to the tried and true and Jupiter in Libra will help you find the balance and true direction for your future happiness.

In the business sense, we have those times when we and our partners are not on the same page and there is controversy. With Jupiter in Libra we have the chance to find the balance we are looking for in our dealings. Opposite the First House, our ideas and dreams are on the line — don’t give up on what you truly think is your best way forward, instead tap into the generous Jupiter in Libra vibes to give you that boost of energy that propels you forward on your pathway. With the help of this duo, you can realize your goals and then some. Perhaps you are wary of taking that leap into the unknown — with Jupiter in Libra lighting the way you can “see” how you can progress with the help of the Planets. Your partners will be more agreeable and you will be able to come to some amenable settlements.

Jupiter in Libra in this House can bring you rewards beyond your imagination, allow yourself to find that certain pathway that will bring you enlightenment and concrete advancement in your chosen field. Now might be the time to take a chance to move ahead with your plans and give yourself the credit for all your previous hard work. You know what it is you need, what you want and only you know how much getting to your goals will mean. Bring your A-game to the fore and make this your year to shine. By the end of this transit — you will find that you are far ahead of the competition, and in a good place to reach your bliss!

Jupiter in Libra in the Eighth House —   Herein lie the deepest and most emotional areas of our existence — Life, Death, Regeneration, Rebirth — not to mention taxes and other peoples money. This is such a sensitive area for most of us to deal with we often ignore how much it impacts our daily life.We often keep our secrets here and family business under wrap, and when there is controversy we sometimes find our loyalties stretched beyond our ability to successfully deal with all the angst. This can be a contentious House wherein financial issues are often a burden, and our allegiences are being tested. With Jupiter in Libra in this House it will be as if a shadow has been lifted. Things that were kept “under wraps” will be brought into the light of day. Some of our deepest worries and uncertainties will be released from our psyches.

Jupiter in Libra will give you a good idea of your financial health — you will be able to get a handle on what you have, what you need, and how to go about getting your financial house in order. Libra wants balance above all, and with Jupiter’s ability to bring more to the table, you will find at the end of this transit that you are in better stead with all of your money dealings. Also, any monies that are owed to you will be paid and if you are currently in some kind of law suit — the outcome will most likely be in your favor. You also may find a new source of income with an inheritance (opposite 2nd House) or input from a previously unknown source.

While Jupiter in Libra is in the Eighth House, it is also a good time to refresh your health routines, whether exercise or diet needs improvement — now is the appropriate period to get those areas in good working order. You will be happier and healthier by the end of this transit if you work with Jupiter in Libra to become more involved in your own future health strategies. Find that balance between work and play, indulgence and stability, and vanity and selflessness. Work on your inner and outer being to become whole and healthy. By the end of the transit of Jupiter in Libra you will find that you are more comfortable in your own skin, you are happy with your financial plans, and you are more aware of where you want to go and how to get there. Jupiter in Libra will help you reach your dreams!

Mars Enters Capricorn — September 27th to November 9th 2016

When Mars enters Capricorn at 3:07 AM EST (add one hour for DST) on the 27th, it’s as if a glass of cold water has been thrown into his face! After his lengthy and joyous stay in Sagittarius where he could roam freely, enjoy the extra power of another Fire sign and could generally create his own agenda, Mars now must contend with Earthy Cardinal Capricorn — certainly a different demeanor than in Sagittarius. Mighty Mars will have to find a way to blend Capricorn’s high standards and ethical senses with His own idea of overbearing control and passion. This is not easy for our stalwart Mars, as He is used to having His own way in the Galaxy — overwhelming others with His might, power and audacity!  Generally speaking, Mars is flummoxed by Capricorn’s pragmatic outlook on life, and slow and plodding method of moving ahead at a steady pace. This is not Mars style at all, and he feels stifled and restrained under Capricorn’s mantle.

However, it won’t take long for Mars to try to counteract Capricorn’s practicality — indeed, Mars will soon have gotten Capricorn’s number and will realize that slow and steady as this sign is, there is a deep desire to be successful. Ah ha! Mars can capitalize on Capricorn’s need for social standing, appreciation, and wish to be a mover and shaker in the world. After all — Capricorn is a Cardinal sign and no matter what — Cardinal signs really want to succeed. Mars will engage His own base of being the ruler of Cardinal Aries to connect with this more stable but relentless sign. Never underestimate the power of Capricorn — staying out of the limelight, making their plans carefully and practically, they burst out of the darkness to take over whatever was in their agenda — surprising even the most aware of onlookers.

So — what does this combo have in store for we mere mortals? Look to your chart to see where Capricorn lives and there will be your area of intense action and activity whilst Mars remains there. How can we best use these two dynamically opposite forces to help us on our journey here on Earth? We must blend Mars force and desire with Capricorn’s moral and ethical outlook by remembering that Capricorn’s almost always succeed in their quests. Now — Mars has the ability to draw others into his heady aura of intense emotion and zest for life! Few can ignore His irresistible call for action. We are drawn to Mars passion as a moth to a flame, and while He is in Capricorn — Macho Mars becomes more an elder statesman than an action hero! Still there is that Mars deep-seated urge for reaching a goal —  the dynamic swashbuckler becomes the suave and savvy adventurer. Not so quick to action, but having that smoldering inner need for winning, and knowing that He doesn’t need all of the “free-for-all” commotion to reach the gold ring. Mars in Capricorn is a bit like having the best of both worlds in one vibrant and vigorous package without all the angst!

Mars enters Aquarius on November 9th at 12:52 AM EST, another about face for our Mighty Mars — how will Mars fare in Fixed Airy Aquarius?  Time will tell!


Mars in Capricorn Love Style — With this heady combination we find deep emotional connection without any maudlin pandering. Mars in Capricorn still retains his vibrant need for intense love and passion, but with a more mature and traditional aura surrounding His choices. Capricorn tends to modify Mars usual over-the-top Rambo style of wooing and winning his mate — to a more controlled and yet blistering desire to find the perfect helpmate and lover. Mars in Capricorn blends two Cardinal signs that never give up on something they truly crave as a necessity to their health and happiness.

Capricorn moderates some of Mars power, but hones it to become that underlying banked furnace ready to burst forth with white-hot flames. Mars mighty power can never be fully extinguished, but in Capricorn — Mars learns to control those outrageously overwhelming instances where He loses control — indeed — Capricorn is a buffer of sorts keeping Mars more bizarre actions in check. Mars in Capricorn is a more organized Mars, a more competent Mars and a more meticulous Mars — this is Mars all grown up and ready to take on the responsibility of a company, a country, a family!

Mars in Capricorn knows what he wants out of life and has the demeanor to get it without fanfare or commotion. When Mars in Capricorn finds his true love, there is nothing He would not do to make the connection permanent. Mars in Capricorn wants that foundation of family, tradition, and bonding. Steady, passionate, intensely committed, loving, longing for that forever connection to another — our Mars in Capricorn will be true, loyal and devoted to his loved ones. A good provider and a steady partner, Mars in Capricorn will reach his goals and will bring a forever love to his one-and-only!

If you want steadfastness, deep passion, family tradition, and someone who will cherish you well into your dotage — Mars in Capricorn is your soul-mate — a forever lover and friend.


New Moon in Libra — September 30th 2016 — Conjunct Jupiter in Libra

Check your list from the 1st New Moon of the month to see what may have manifested and what still might need to be sought. I’m writing this a little early to give everyone a heads-up about this brand new chance to get your wishes into the heady ether of the Galaxy as Jupiter in Libra is giving us a big boost being conjunct the New Moon.

Combined with the vitality of the New Moon we have an extraordinary opportunity to have all of our affirmations and desires enhanced with the innate enthusiasm of this aspect. The New Moon always helps us get our ideas and wishes into the Universal ether, where like any thoughts they become whole and able to manifest here on Earth. Our thoughts are a powerhouse of positive vitality that can come back to us when properly stated and written out. Jupiter in Libra adds a unique additional source of strength that we can use when writing out our affirmations.

Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to get your deepest and most ardent wishes and desires into the ethereal mists. Think about those things that would enhance your life and the lives of your loved ones at this point in time. Search your inner spirit for inspiration in choosing wisely and well those issues that really matter to you and yours. Libra is a Cardinal Air sign that has reign over beauty, marriage, the arts, decor, social standing, flowers, but also incorporated with Jupiter — the law, judges, sports, physicians, religion, higher education, and banking. So many ways to combine these two entities into our New Moon wish list.

Let your imagination soar as you think about what would improve your life right now! No matter what you can think of — it isn’t beyond the realm of Jupiter in Libra power, connected to the New Moon in Libra spirit to bring them into your reality!

Whatever is on your agenda can be written down as clearly as possible in order to be put into the Universal Harmonics of our world — there to be manifested in a solid and real possibility for you to experience. Prepare some of your thoughts now, and refine it as we get nearer to the New Moon on the 30th –want a new or re-inspired relationship, need to hone your ability to reach out to that special someone, want to improve your ability to negotiate when seeking a new job, a new home, or a new car, do you feel you should be receiving more appreciation for your work, ideas, help — think about what would work for you. We can also put anything on our agenda — more free time, more luxurious life-style, better and more vivacious health, easing of current angst or worries, good outcomes for legal issues, getting into the school you wanted,  feeling in control, embracing others lifestyles, being open to others about what you really want — whether a job, relationship, or more freedom!

Only you know what will work in your best interests — think carefully and long about exactly what would improve your life right now, and go for the gold. You are deserving of all the good things life has to offer, and not only are you worthy — you have earned it! Long hours working, studying, helping, being a good human being — not a perfect human being — but doing your best.
