February’s Solar Eclipse could constitute a real spiritual cleansing or just some old-fashioned escapism as the Sun descends into the self-disintegrating world of Pisces. Juno in Capricorn and Ceres in Taurus are on hand to assist in the proceedings, offering Earthy solutions to a Watery problem. But how can they help one who is used to finding his answers at the bottom of a bottle? And what wisdom does Neptune, ruler of this eclipse’s sign, have to offer?

Details About This Eclipse

Date: February 26, 2017
Time of eclipse: 6:58 AM Pacific Time
Type: annular (weak in intensity)
Visible in: southern South America and southern Africa.
At: 8º Pisces
Nodal Orientation: Releasing. The eclipsed Sun conjunct South Node in Pisces creates a Releasing (not Initiating) nodal orientation.
Shadow Agents:  Juno in Capricorn, Ceres in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
February 21 to March 3
May 24 to June 3
August 26 to September 5
November 25 to December 5

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A solar eclipse is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event (unlike a lunar eclipse, which is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event).  You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).  The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. You answer it. The Sun is there, swaying and looking bleary. He staggers into the house, followed by the Moon, who is shaking her head. Close behind them are the North Node in Virgo and the South Node in Pisces.
Moon: I’m sorry about this. He’s so drunk he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
Sun: I’m not drunk! I’m hungover.
South Node: You’re not drunk or hungover. You’ve been drinking so much you don’t get drunk or hungover anymore. It’s a perpetual state with you these days.
The Sun starts shaking.
Sun: Really need a drink.
The Moon’s eyes swell up with tears of empathy. The Sun crashes on the couch and the Nodes are both wearing disapproving looks.
North Node (to the Moon): You’ve been enabling his drinking.
Moon: We need to plan an intervention for him. I can’t live with this anymore.
South Node: I wholeheartedly agree. We’re going to need some help. I’m in Pisces so I’m calling in my planetary ruler, Neptune.
He snaps his fingers. There’s another knock at the door and Neptune sweeps in. She’s wearing a long, flowing gown of an uncertain color which shimmers so much it’s hard to look at her.
Neptune: I know the answer! You need a rest cure. What used to be called “taking the waters.”
Sun: Is that what they meant at that AA meeting where they said that I have a hole in my soul that I’m pouring alcohol into?
Neptune: Yes, exactly. You have forgotten who you are. You’re lost and you need to reconnect with the eternal. Spirituality is what will fill that hole. Your very own higher power.
Moon: That’s what I’ve been saying for a long time.
North Node: And if this doesn’t work, it’s rehab for you.
Neptune waves her hand and sparkles come out of her sleeve which turn your home into a spa. A giant fountain filled with healthful mineral water starts bubbling away in the middle of your living room.
Neptune: Many cultures around the world have had a tradition of bathing to cleanse both the body and soul. . .
Juno: (popping in at the door) Did somebody say cleanse? I’m in Capricorn and I think some austerity is called for here. Sun, you’ve got a buildup of toxicity. Time for a body scrub!
She offers everyone a plain, dark robe to wear. The other deities throw off their raiment and don the robes. Juno then hands out jars of scented pumice and shows the Sun a table. He immediately disrobes and gets on it. Juno, Neptune and Nodes proceed to slough off several layers of the Sun’s dead skin, helping to remove toxins from the his body.
Sun: Ow! Wow!
You: Does that feel great or terrible?
Sun: Wow! Both!
He is squirming under the forceful hold of the other gods who continue scrubbing at him until he’s quite red.
You: Um, all this nakedness is making me uncomfortable—
Neptune: We’re gods. Do you think we care about that?
Ceres (popping her head in at the door): Did someone say body scrub? I’m always up for one of those. And I’ve brought something nice for you, Sun.
Ceres in Taurus steps in. She has brought a giant tureen of chicken noodle soup she has spent hours preparing.
Ceres: I cooked a bone broth and made soup from it just for you, Sun! It’s a panacea passed down to me by my great grandmother.
You: Do goddesses have great grandmothers?
Sun: I can see I’m outnumbered here so maybe I should just surrender.
He picks up a spoon and begins digging into the soup.
Sun: Wow, this is delicious! I can’t think when was the last time I enjoyed actual food.
Moon: Yeah, take a break, Sun! You shine on the world every day but when do you get to rest?
Just then, the Sun begins to go dark.
Sun: It’s starting!
Neptune: Get him to the pool, everybody!
Moon and Neptune help him over to the pool and ease him into the warm water. The Sun sizzles and crackles a bit as he drops into the water, which warms from him being in it, making a delicious bath for everyone to enjoy. Everyone else also disrobes and steps into the hot pool, including you, despite your embarrassment, which no one seems to share. You’ve never felt anything so relaxing and the hot water makes you want to melt right down to your bones.
Sun: I’m feeling a deep sense of gratitude that all of you are in my life. And I’m feeling truly cleansed. Now, how about a drink to celebrate?
All the other planets shake their heads.
Moon: Sometimes a stressful square works better than a harmonious trine or sextile.
Juno: Yeah, if we were harder on him, it might have had some lasting impact.
Ceres: Perhaps he just wanted the attention. He is the Sun, after all, and always was something of an egomaniac.
All the planets rise from the water in a single motion, and grab Sun by the arms.
Sun: What now? Where are you taking me?
North Node: To rehab. You’re out of control.
Sun: Noooooooooooooooooooooo! I don’t have a problem!
And they exit your home en masse, dragging the Sun with them.

This year, Saturn enters into a square with Chiron, which lasts almost a year and spans 21 to 27º of Mutable signs, affecting those with Sun in Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo everywhere. Chiron is the planet of wounding and healing while Saturn rules authoritarianism and hierarchy. What could this stressful planetary aspect mean? The script below describes one way it could go, but first, how will you know if this even matters to you?

Does this transit affect you?

If you were born within the following dates, you will feel this transit strongly:
December 11 through 19 of any year
March 10 through 17 of any year
June 10 through 18 of any year
September 13 through 20 of any year

This post may seem like a statement about world events, but it’s also a metaphor for events inside all us human beings. This post is for you if. . .

  • You’ve become aware of some deep wounding in your life and don’t know what to do about it
  • You face the same (seemingly karmic or fated) situations over and over again, and always you feel like the victim
  • You’re ready to heal the wound instead of escaping the responsibility

How Saturn square Chiron works
(this part is technical, but brief)

The connection between Saturn and Chiron is strongest when it’s exact and there are 3 days this year when that happens. I’ll show you images of these connections below but first, please know that if one of those days happens to be your birthday or within a few days on either side of it, then Saturn and Chiron will have powerful lessons expressly for you in this birthday year. A reading of your birthday chart (called a Solar Return) can help you discover what it means for your year and how to use it to the fullest capacity. These are the dates of the exact Saturn-Chiron connections this year: December 28, 2016, April 30, 2017 and November 2, 2017.

The first pass happens on December 28, 2016, while Saturn is direct at 21º Sagittarius and Chiron (also direct) is at 21º Pisces. If you have anything in 21º of a Mutable sign—such as your Sun, Moon or Ascendant, and so on—you will feel this (see diagram for pass 1).


Saturn square Chiron pass 1

The second pass happens on April 30, 2017, while Saturn is retrograde and Chiron is direct and both are at 27º of their signs. If you have anything in 27º of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo, you will feel this (see diagram for pass 2).



Saturn square Chiron pass 2

The third pass is where this transit ends, on November 2, 2017 with Saturn direct at 24º Sagittarius while Chiron is still retrograde in 24º Pisces. This will affect you if you have anything in 24º of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo (see diagram for pass 3).

Saturn square Chiron pass 3

What could this stressful planetary aspect mean?
The following story illustrates one way it could go. . .

On board a large sailing vessel filled with a small city of people, Saturn has arrived at the coastline of the first island in an archipelago. He is the head of a large contingent of missionaries. There is a glow around him as he steps forth from the ship. On dry land, he looks around for who’s in charge.
Saturn: (to a Human Being he finds on the beach): Take me to your leader!
The Human Being is completely in wonder at the strange clothing and strange objects carried by the Boat People who are now crowding onto the beach. They follow Saturn in a straight, organized line to the village, where the Human Being announces the arrival of strangers in their midst. Human leads Saturn straight to Chiron, a religious leader wearing comfortable island garb, tending his fire and minding his own business.
Human Being: Chiron, strangers have come!
Chiron: I’m not terribly interested. I’m in Pisces. I’ve been sitting here in meditation for several months and I can tell you these strangers bring no good with them.
Chiron scowls at Saturn.
Saturn: We’ve brought you a wonderful thing. It’s called religion.
Chiron: We don’t need your religion here.
But from behind Chiron peeps a Young Woman who is looking with interest at a Young Man among the Boat People. She smiles and he smiles back.
Chiron: Can’t you see we already have religion?
Saturn: Our religion is the true one. It’s the only one that has reality. We’re offering to include you in it.
Chiron: Is that an offer or a demand?
Saturn: It’s an offer of course!
Chiron: Not if it comes at the point of a sword.
Saturn: But you are savages! Don’t you want to come into the modern era?
Chiron: What does history say? After the missionaries come the colonists. After the colonists come the traders. After the traders come the businessmen. Before much time has passed as we reckon it, we who have lived on this land for many more generations than we can name will find that our land is seized, owned (an idea foreign to us) and that we are no longer allowed to live on it.
Saturn: Ridiculous! My people believe in one universal truth. Your people have lost their way. We are here to guide you back. Why aren’t you grateful?
Chiron. I am grateful. I am grateful for the green, green forest and the wealth of fish in the sea and the wide blue sky I get to live under. But for you showing up here? No, I’m not grateful.
Saturn (who hasn’t been listening): Yes, a few of us might have to move in, and we might need to make space for them, but is that really a problem? Where’s your generosity?
Chiron: We belong to the land, she does not belong to us. We can not own her, therefore we can not give her away. She is not ours to give. This land sustains us. Without it, we will perish. Is this your gift? That we should perish for your business interests?
Saturn: I’m not a businessman, but if I was, I’d say that your people could use some jobs. And there are some lovely resources around here you could be leveraging more powerfully. Perhaps you should start a tourist industry?
Chiron: So you would enslave us as well.
He sighs.
Chiron: We don’t have guns to fight you. I suppose this will go as it always has. Your arrogance will win and ours will be the ultimate sacrifice.
Chiron walks into his own fire and stands in it, singing as he burns. When there are only ashes left, his people mourn. Ultimately what is left is a story of a martyr who loved his home and his people, and resisted colonization until death.
Saturn: What have I done here?
And the Boat People move in, bringing religion, commerce, property ownership, guns and syphilis with them.

The symbol for Pisces is two fish, swimming in opposite directions, an apt metaphor for the ambivalence that characterizes those born under this sign (between February 21 and March 22). Pisceans are the most ethereal and otherworldly people in the Zodiac, dreaming more about what could be than living in what actually is. Visionary and prone to flights of fancy, Pisces folks add a compassionate and artistic dimension to our world. But when are you, Pisces, being an inspired dreamer, or just a cosmic escape artist?

Pisces, at your best. . .
. . . you are endlessly compassionate to every living being in the world. You are capable of a deep, egoless transcendence and tend to look for and value a spiritual connection with other people instead of a solely materialistic one. You don’t get caught up in all of the earth-bound issues that ensnare most people’s focus: money, status, looking cool, etc. Your values are more transcendental than material. This is because you can easily become anyone, and you can fit with any type of partner or become anyone’s friend. It is because of this chameleon nature that you feel so connected to everyone in the universe, because you can see a part of yourself in everyone you meet.

…and at you’re worst…
Feeling like you’re the next Mother Teresa? Well, a transcendental nature can run both ways. In fact, it can backfire into sheer escapism–yup, that vibrant inner fantasy life of yours can manifest into less desirable behaviors such as binge-watching Netflix and finishing another bottle of wine. You can wrap yourself up in a really cushy comfort zone, but it often results in you being unfocused, wishy-washy, and go-with-the-flow even when the flow ain’t going anywhere! Sometimes, it’s hard for you to be the driver in your own life, and you view everything fatalistically and superstitiously. You can be melodramatic and self-sacrificing to a fault, playing the martyr instead of accepting the consequences of your actions and taking initiative. Because you morph so easily, you sometimes forget to ask for what YOU want, leading to unsustainable relationships loaded with drama.

Handling your Pisces nature
Take measures to fully occupy your life by taking it in YOUR own hands. Don’t play the victim by lamenting about how everything bad magically happens to you. Don’t just stagnate in the cushy comfort zone you can conjure for yourself—actively harness your imaginative powers, shaping your visions into realities you can live, instead of just dream about. Get lots of REM sleep, solitude away from others’ demands, and unstructured time where you don’t need to accomplish anything in particular—or watch your escapist tendencies permeate into more serious parts of your life, causing things to fall apart. Use your feeling of connectedness to all living beings to do volunteer or charity work. This will make it possible for you to devote your spiritual nature to giving to those who can give back, instead of sinking it into family and friends who are losers and who just drain you.

Clueing others in about you….
…by telling them that you need solitude—a quiet, peaceful place where you can escape from life’s demands. Insist on taking time for yourself, because your kindness is a valuable resource that should not be depleted. Learn from every experience where your boundaries have been crossed or you’ve been taken advantage of. Set healthy boundaries and let other know what they are. Hold to them in a loving way. Build a spiritual practice into your life—you’ll be amazed by how it sustains you. And let all your friends know that, while you may seem like a follower, a shapeshifter, a morpher, that you do infact lead—but not in material ways. Your leadership is in the spiritual, the eternal realms, which is where you really live. When plugged into the divine and into a moral sense that sustains you, you are a guiding light for everyone around you.

March’s New Moon is also an emotionally powerful lunar eclipse and it’s in the watery sign of Pisces. This is a Moon with many currents and many flavors, like a soup that’s not quite ready yet. A New Moon is a great time for beginnings but beginnings under this Moon are muddy indeed. Some of the things you begin this month may need time to cook or integrate or blend fully before they are ready for action. Instead of gobbling the soup before it’s ready, allow all the flavors to blend in the pot first—then taste it.

Details About This Eclipse

Date: March 20, 2015
Time of eclipse:
2:36 AM Pacific
Type: total (strong in intensity)
Visible in: Europe, Northern Africa, Middle East, North-West Asia, Iceland and Greenland
At: 29º Pisces
Shadow Agents: Ceres in Capricorn, Pallas Athena in Sagittarius

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
March 15-25
June 15-26
September 17-27
December 16-26

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A solar eclipse is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event (unlike a lunar eclipse, which is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event).  You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).  The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door.  You answer it.  There stands Ceres in Capricorn, holding a giant cauldron. She brushes by you and into the kitchen, where she puts the cauldron on your stove. She is wearing a plain garment of a soft gray, and her every movement is pure efficiency. The cauldron is enormous and it covers three burners. She turns on the flame under it and uses a pitcher to add water from the sink. Then she begins pulling ingredients from the air, muttering to herself.

Ceres: Here’s some interesting karma. . . (she waves a grayish substance into the cauldron) . . .  and what about this experience? (she adds a yellow streaked with green) And here’s a twist. . . (a bluish-purple liquid pours into the cauldron from the air above it, causing bubbles and steam to rise). . . and a pinch of this! (the pinch is bright red and sparkly). You approach the cauldron, sniffing appreciatively.
You: Hey, this smells familiar! Is this the project I’m trying to create at work?
Ceres: Sure is! But it’s not ready yet. We have to let it cook awhile.
The front door bangs open and in runs Pallas Athena in Sagittarius, dressed in a bright orange jogging suit. She blows into the kitchen abruptly.
Pallas Athena: Hey guys, what’s cooking?
You: It appears to be a project I’m trying to get going at work.
Pallas Athena grabs the spoon.
Ceres, stopping her: Uh-uh-uh! Nope. Not ready yet.
Athena looks annoyed but holds back.
Athena: I’ve got a great sales plan for this project. I can sell it to your boss and your boss’ boss and your coworkers, and then I can sell it to the rest of the world too.
You: That sounds great!
Ceres: But not yet.
You: Maybe we can talk about it in the living room.
Ceres: Nope. We don’t know what it’s going to turn into. A leak would drain it of its power and change the recipe. Don’t even think about that sales stuff yet.
Athena looks irritated, but she pulls up a stool and sits on her hands.
Athena: Hey, what about this?
She pulls a thread of orange energy out of the air and offers it to Ceres who views it speculatively.
Ceres: That could work. Toss it in.
Athena does so while Ceres stirs. Together, the three of you watch the colors swirl and blend inside the cauldron, while steam brings a strange and intriguing mix of scents to your noses.
Ceres: Now off you go. Both of you. And no side conversations till it’s done. I mean it!
She shoves you out of the kitchen and Athena disappears in an orange cloud.
Three mornings later, you shuffle into the kitchen rubbing your eyes. Ceres is still there, stirring and humming to herself as the sun comes up and the birds begin to sing. She smiles at you and shakes her head.
Ceres: Not ready yet.
You fumble your way to the shower. Another few days later you wander into the kitchen again and there she is, stirring away. She dips the spoon into the cauldron and offers you a taste.
You: Wow, that’s fantastic! It really is!
Ceres shakes her head, amused.
Ceres: You really didn’t believe me, you silly human. Sometimes, you have to leave things in the hands of a deity. And you have to just walk away, trusting that the thing will sort itself out.
You: I will never forget it again.
Athena pops her head into the room for a moment and calls out: Neither will I!
Ceres: Oh yes you will, the very next time you’re in a fire sign again!

Neptune in an astrology chart represents the Dreamer, the Visionary, the Artist in all of us. Neptune takes 14 years to pass through each sign of the zodiac, gathering all individuals born in that time period* under the banner of a shared dream, a vision of otherworldly magnificence and beauty. Pisceans of each generation are particularly captivated by their generational dream. Here are the generational dreams and dates of people alive today:

Neptune in Virgo:
Neptune entered Virgo in the end of 1928, returned to Leo briefly in the spring of 1929, then moved into Virgo to stay in July 1929. Neptune in Virgo natives share a practical dream of efficiency and prudence. It’s no accident that these are the Depression babies, born into a time of scarcity, following a time of (Leonine) excess. Hardworking, frugal, they are also sometimes called “The Silent Generation.”

Neptune in Libra:
Neptune left Virgo for Libra in October of 1942. It slipped back into Virgo briefly in April of 1943, then returned to dwell in Libra in August of that year. Neptune in Libra is a beautiful dream of love, connectedness and world peace. This is the Baby Boomer generation, the hippie flower children who came of age in the 1960’s, who burned their draft cards and said, “Give peace a chance.”

Neptune in Scorpio:
This is my own generation, born as early as December 1955, (with a break while Neptune slipped back into Libra in March-October 1956) and proceeding through most of the sixties. I like to say this generation’s dreams isn’t so much a beautiful dream as it is a beautiful nightmare of intimacy and intensity. Called Generation X, (almost as if to say, “after those Baby Boomers we have to name these kids something—but what??”) this group’s dream is intimate connection, no matter into what dark places it may lead us.

Neptune in Sagittarius:
In November 1970, Neptune entered Sagittarius, birthing individuals whose vision is an expanding dream of global unity and world connectedness. This is a generation of ramblers, travelers, wanderers and world citizens, asking “Why can’t we all get along on this blue and green marble?” Called Gen Y, this generation is a small one, but deserves a better name than Y. This generation invented the Gap year (when you travel for a year between high school and college).

Neptune in Capricorn:
Neptune first flirted with Capricorn in January of 1984, but returned to Sagittarius briefly from June to November, moving into Cap for real in late November 1984. I like to call this generation’s dream “A dream of empires.” It’s a serious dream of effectiveness and authority. This generation has been dubbed “the Millennials” by William Strauss and Neil Howe—and they can’t wait to take charge.

Neptune in Aquarius:
Neptune left Capricorn for Aquarius in the last few days of January 1998, returning for a brief stint in Cap from late August 1998 through most of November that year. By December 1988, Neptune’s journey through Aquarius was well underway. This generation are children and teens now and theirs is futuristic dream of progress and technological advancement. I like to call them “the Tech Generation.”

What is your generation’s dream? And what is your relationship to that dream? How can you advance the dream of your generation?


* I live in the USA, so my understanding of generations occurs in that cultural context.

Do you love a Pisces?
Are you a Pisces in love?

Human relationships are complex, layered things.  Every sign responds to love differently and has needs that are particular to it.  Also no individual can be categorized by their Sun sign alone.  Every person is a mixed bag of astrological traits, but an emphasis on Pisces in your chart (or its ruling planet, Neptune) will result in distinctly Piscean experience.  In particular, if you have the Sun or Moon in Pisces OR if you have Venus or Juno in Pisces, this article is just for you.

Are you a Pisces in love?
Who was that masked man? Who was that mysterious woman (didn’t she belong to a French lieutenant a long time ago?) Oh, it’s just you, Pisces, International Person of Mystery. Do you ever feel like you’re just too deep for the people in your life and that it’s a rare person who gets you—and a rare day when you get yourself? It’s because you are not just one person, but many possible people. There are so many directions that call to you that it’s hard to choose. This applies to relationships as well and you may find that you like to try out people. While you may seem impressionable and more like a follower than a leader, it’s really just that you’re on a longer, more late-blooming path than your peers. There’s a lot to figure out in your life, and in yourself, and it’s going to take some time.

How to manage your relationships as a Pisces. . .
Date people who are good for you. Look hard at your dating history and ask yourself, did I date that person because I knew I could be indispensible to them? Because I could shape myself to be what they needed and because I wanted to be needed? Every time you do that, Pisces, you need to ask yourself another, harder question: Was that relationship good for me? You have a unique ability to match the person you’re with and to give them room to be themselves and to support their will. But where in all this do you find your own will? What direction do you want to go? As you age, you become more sure of yourself and make better choices. And here’s another thing: learn to end your relationships concretely, instead of just drifting away, hoping to avoid a confrontation. Practice clarity.

Do you love a Pisces?
Then you must be feeling equal parts yearning and frustration. Why does your Pisces dream so much and do so little? And how did you get caught up in the perpetual search for the real person inside? You must love a mystery. This is a good thing because your Pisces’ puzzles will take decades to solve. Strong marriages have been built on less. Here’s a key: be gentle with your Pisces. When you are harsh, s/he will just float away. When you are neglectful, s/he will fade and seem to disappear. Instead provide loving, supportive structure and above all, believe in your Pisces. If you do that in times when your partner can’t, you will win entry to the inner sanctum. And that’s a downright magical place to be.

If you have Venus or Juno in Pisces in your chart, the chances of you dating Pisceans is very high.  How to handle the Pisces you love. . .

  • She’s a late bloomer. For Pisces, life begins at 40. Let her meander around and try things to discover what fits. She may not really settle into herself until her 30’s are ended. Cultivate her in the meanwhile—the end results will be spectacular.
  • Don’t be taken in by his fantasy of who you are—or who he is. Indulge it, but don’t believe it (do you get the difference?).
  • Encourage her to practice some form of art. It almost doesn’t matter what form, as long as it suits her and she sticks with it.
  • When you must deliver criticism, keep it brief and surround it with loving faith in him and the understanding that he’s doing his best.
  • Her spiritual life is important and if you want to nestle into her heart, relate with her in the spiritual domain. Sharing that means a lot to her.
  • Does your Pisces seem unimaginative? Then something has gone terribly wrong and he may also be quite depressed. To help, begin by gently inquiring about his dreams. Persist at this. At first he may not know what his dreams, his visions are. But when you finally crack open this Pandora’s box, you’ll find he’s a veritable Walter Mitty of fantasies, dreams, imaginings and fancies. Look through this stuff with him as if he’s 8 and showing you his treasure box. Celebrate each rediscovery. Support him to choose one dream and pursue it. Then step back and watch him blossom. This could take the rest of your lives together. And doesn’t it sound nice?

Jupiter and Chiron have met at the Edge of the World.  It’s a misty place where the physical world meets the metaphysical one.  Some of the passageways you already know about are there, such as the wardrobe that leads to Narnia, Dr. Who’s tardis and other magical entry-points.  Jupiter is wearing the long, flowing robes of a priest of no particular denomination—he looks like he could lead a dharma talk or deliver a sermon.  Chiron is wearing nothing but a piece of cloth wrapped around his middle, and carrying a staff with a fearsome creature’s face atop it—perhaps a totem animal, the face of an ancestor, or a defeated enemy’s head.  The two meet and shake hands firmly. 

Jupiter:  Shall we get to work?
Chiron:  Yes, of course.
Chiron waves his staff and the air ripples, as if there is a heat-induced mirage.  Then a doorway appears, a portal.  Inside the portal there is mist—it is impossible to see very far and all the colors are in softened shades of gray.
Chiron:  Are they ready?
Jupiter:  On my side, they’ve been lining up for centuries.  And on yours?
Chiron:  There’s no knowing, because time doesn’t exist there.
Jupiter claps his hands three times, and suddenly there is a line of people extending for miles.  Each stands with hands at sides, eyes closed and wearing a simple white shift.  They are obviously asleep.  
Jupiter (beckoning):  Come forward, please.
The first Human steps forward haltingly.
Jupiter:  What is your wish?
First Human:  I wish to relieve karma in my family line.  I have an ancestor whose pain I have been carrying and whose lessons I am to learn.  I wish to check in with this ancestor.
Jupiter:  Your wish is a fine one.  You may go to the portal.
First Human walks awkwardly to the portal, where Chiron awaits.
Chiron:  I have found your ancestor.  You may speak with her.  Step in and I will make sure you return safely to your waking life.
First Human touches his hand in gratitude and steps through the portal.  
Second Human steps forward.  
Jupiter:  What is your wish?
Second Human:  I wish to communicate with the spirit of my unborn child, to make a connection and to create a safe pregnancy and birth.  I wish to make a spiritual contract to help bring a life into the world.
Jupiter:  Your wish is a fine one.  You may go to the portal.
Second Human:  Thank you.  And she does so.
Chiron:  Your little one awaits you on the other side.  He says things may not turn out as you expect, and that you have to be patient, but he wants to be with you, so you may speak with him to arrange it.  I will make sure you return safely to your waking life.
Second Human eagerly crosses the threshold.
Third Human steps forward.  
Jupiter:  What is your wish?
Third Human:  I have been wronged and I desire justice.
Jupiter:  Your wish is a false one.  If your desire is for peace, you can find that here.  If it is for punishment, you’d best go back to your waking life.
A look of anger crosses Third Human’s face.
Third Human:  I have been wronged!  I wish for life’s balance to deal out pain where pain was given!
Jupiter:  Your bitterness will not bring you peace.  Let it go and pursue your own joy.  The person who hurt you will find pain to match it elsewhere, and that is not your story to know.  In your story, you have the power to be the place where the pain stops.  Dream of that, and for now, return to your sleep and awaken refreshed and ready to begin again.
He touches the forehead of Third Human, whose face relaxes and who turns and stumbles away toward the Waking World.
Fourth Human steps forward, holding a large messenger bag.
Jupiter:  What is your wish?
Fourth Human:  I have letters I wish to be delivered to my younger self and questions for my older self.  I want to encourage my younger self to pursue my dreams and ambitions and to be brave in the face of the challenges I know are to come.  I also want to ask my older self for guidance in moving toward the best future I can have.
Jupiter:  Your wish is a fine one.  You may go to the portal.
Fifth Human steps forward.
Jupiter:  What is your wish?
Fifth Human:  I am consumed with jealousy.  If I could just find out if my partner is cheating on me, I could have relief.
Jupiter:  Your wish is a false one.  If your desire is for peace, you can find that here.  If it is for punishment, you’d best go back to your waking life.
Fifth Human starts in confusion.
Fifth Human:  But we made a promise to each other!  That promise has been broken, I’m sure of it!
Jupiter:  You do not own each other.  Love yourself first and then others.  If you cannot trust your partner, then empty your heart.  After it heals, seek to share love elsewhere.  And for now, return to deep sleep, and awaken to your waking life refreshed and ready to begin again.
He touches the heart of Fifth Human, whose face relaxes and who turns and stumbles away toward the Waking World.
As there are thousands of sleeping Human Beings in line, ready for guidance or some other connection with the world of spirit, these two will obviously be busy for the rest of this harmonious transit.

Squeezing the Sponge image 

Are you a

“highly sensitive”

Neptune person?



You know you’re one if:

  • You feel everything more than other people seem to.
  • It’s hard to shut out the world.
  • You have a rich imagination—which leads to inspiration but also to escapism.
  • You take on other people’s problems too much—and don’t know how to stop.
  • Caring for those you love is so important that you habitually let your own life go to rack and ruin so you can be there for them.

If so, I’ve got something really nice for you.

Who needs this:
Pisces/Neptune types.

Astrologically this means you if you have a strong Pisces or Neptune (ruler of Pisces) influence in your chart.  That might mean you have the Sun in Pisces, the Moon in Pisces or Pisces Rising.  It might mean you have Neptune in any aspect at all to your Sun or Moon, or you might have Neptune Rising or at your Midheaven.  If you have more than one of these, you pretty much qualify as a Highly Sensitive Person.

Psychologically this means you if you resonate with the first paragraph of this blogpost, whether you know anything about your astrology chart or not.  And if you do resonate with this, I’ll bet your chart has a strong Neptune or Pisces influence.

Why you need it:
Your sensitivity to the emotional states of others comes from your way of being porous, like a sponge.  You are impressionable—any atmosphere you place yourself in will affect you and get inside you.  You may then mistake it for a part of yourself and take it on as if it was yours.  When you live with or work with someone who generates a lot of negative emotions, this can be disastrous.

Every human being generates a kind of emotional bubble around themselves.  Some call this your “aura.”  It’s a kind of energy field.  When we relate with others, we connect with them and merge bubbles to create a shared bubble for the duration of the interaction.  Your Pisces tendency is to equalize the pain inside the shared bubble.  So if someone comes to you looking for sympathy, you will merge with them and try to ease their burden by taking their pain (of whatever kind: anger, grief, resentment, self-destruction) into your own bubble.  You sponge it right up.  It’s REALLY important to squeeze the sponge out periodically, because that negativity you’re feeling might not even be yours.  And if you get doses of negativity every day and never squeeze it out. . . well obviously that’s the cause of any number of emotional and health complaints you may have.

Here’s the meditation:
Squeezing The Sponge Meditation

How to do it:
Get in a comfortable place, sitting in a relaxed, supported position or lying down at a time when you’re not likely to fall asleep.  If you can be in a natural setting, so much the better.  Listen to the recording and follow the instructions it gives your imagination.  At the end, give yourself a minute or two to stretch and begin to slowly re-enter your day.  Do the meditation every day, at least once a day, for 30 days.

Make it a practice
You need to “squeeze the sponge out” on a regular basis.  If you’ve never had a practice like this before, begin by doing it every day, perhaps even several times a day.  After a while (weeks perhaps, or maybe months), you won’t need it as often and you may know the meditation by heart.  In that case, you won’t need the recording anymore and you’ll be able to do it faster.  Then you can do it on public transit or while waiting in line at the bank.

Turning your sensitivity into a gift, not a curse
You’re a natural healer.  You heal through compassion and other people tend to feel their burden is lifted just by being around you.  You are capable of truly understanding other people, even in places where they feel deeply misunderstood—which means you have an in with them.  You can also forgive (not everyone can).  These are beautiful traits and you may have, out of reaction to your sensitivity and out of the need to protect yourself, closed these abilities off.  If you learn to let go of the negativity you soak up, you can live life in the emotionally open way that’s natural to you, like a flower soaking up the rain and sunshine.  You can lead with the imagination, experience deep gratitude at being alive, and move on to enjoying life more and drowning in it less.  A lot less.

Notice how your life changes
Using this meditation can change your life, but not in ways that are dramatic or directly causal.  If anyone is tuned into subtleties, it’s you, so begin to pay attention to the subtle changes in your life that are already beginning to occur after the very first time you do this meditation.

Notice how changes happen in ways that don’t seem connected to this meditation, but simply unfold naturally in the fresh atmosphere it creates in your life.  Your environment will change and with it, yourself.  Watch yourself begin to really occupy your life.  Move in.  Make it yours.  Be a person.  Become you.  You don’t have to lose all the other selves you could be.  Let them roll around in your imagination.

Reclaim your intuition.  Has your intuition been drowned under all the negativity you’ve absorbed?  Have you become calcified in an attempt to protect yourself from that negativity?  It’s time to let all that go and reclaim your intuitive knowing.  This meditation will help.  It’s my gift to you.

Change your world for the better
Pisces/Neptune person, you are the Visionary, the Dreamer and the Artist.  The Force is strong with you.  Allow the fruits of your imagination to seep out into the world and create good.  This is more satisfying than anything and living in a way that protects you from the pain of others actually liberates you to do more good.  Please do, because the world needs you. . . and your dreams.

If you want to find the trash and the treasure in the zodiac, all you have to do is count by eights.  Each sign looks 8 signs forward to the sign it treasures.  Each sign also looks 8 signs behind itself to the sign it regards as its own trash.  Each sign finds its treasure sign alluring, mysterious and impenetrable.  Each sign has little respect for its trash sign, which is the sign that worships it.  Check the diagram to see what I mean.

zodiac signs in quincunxFind Your Treasure and Trash
Begin with the sign you’re counting from, then go counterclockwise and follow the arrows.  Aries treasure?  That’s Scorpio.  But Aries trash?  That’s Virgo.  So the red Aries arrow points to Scorpio (which is 8 signs away if you start your count with Aries), while the Virgo green arrow points to Aries (8 signs away if you are counting from Virgo).

Here’s how the path runs:  Aries trashes Virgo, which treasures Aries.  Virgo trashes Aquarius, which treasures Virgo.  Aquarius trashes Cancer, which treasures Aquarius.  Cancer trashes Sagittarius, which treasures Cancer.  Sagittarius trashes Taurus, which treasures Sagittarius.  Taurus trashes Libra, which treasures Taurus.  Libra trashes Pisces, which treasures Libra.  Pisces trashes Leo, which treasures Pisces.  Leo trashes Capricorn, which treasures Leo.  Capricorn trashes Gemini, which treasures Capricorn.  Gemini trashes Scorpio, which treasures Gemini.  Scorpio trashes Aries, which treasures Scorpio.

Treasure and Trash, by sign:
Aries is fascinated with Scorpionic depth and power, but can get burned by it, because Scorpio finds Aries’ directness and honesty very easy to manipulate.  Scorpio has no respect for Aries’ courage, because Scorpio feels Aries is too simple.  Virgo is thrilled by Aries because Aries moves fast and gets a lot done.  That kind of efficiency is exciting to Virgo.  But Virgo is meticulous and worries too much, which Aries can’t respect.  Aries moves on to more interesting pastures, leaving Virgo in the dust.  What sign treasures Virgo?  That would be Aquarius, sign of science, which venerates cold, Virgoan logic and attention to detail.  But Aquarius can’t get any respect from Virgo, who thinks Aquarian thinking is undisciplined and too detached to be truly useful.  Aquarius is beloved by Cancer, sign of family, which views Aquarian community and humanitarianism as a social extension of family.  But Aquarius thinks Cancer’s family-centered lifestyle is too preferential and insular, because everyone deserves, don’t they?  Cancer views Sagittarius with scorn, because good old Sag is always in motion and can’t stick around long enough to really connect.  Sag worships Cancer’s sense of place because “the end of every Sag journey is to return home (Cancer) and recognize the place for the first time.”  Sagittarius is venerated by Taurus, which is blown away by the sheer fertility of Sagittarian creativity and the proliferation of ideas that abundantly flow from Sag.  Sag doesn’t give a fig for Taurus, that slow, stodgy, stubborn, provincial stick-in-the-mud.  The sign that does worship Taurus is Libra, who can’t believe the way Taurus seems to remain centered in the midst of whatever chaos life might bring (Taurus is accustomed to being opposite Scorpio—that’s how you get that kind of centering!).  Taurus looks down on Libra, because Libra perpetually waffles, can’t make decisions and pretends to be all about balance while swinging wildly from one extreme to another.  Libra is adored by Pisces, the spiritual side of all of us that is drawn to beauty as a metaphor for spiritual truth.  For Pisces, Libran beauty has a truly compelling nature, speaking to the ideal.  But Libra ignores wallflower Pisces or takes advantage of her, then throws her away.  Leo has the sense to see the value in Pisces.  Like a lion trying to catch a fish, but also trying to avoid the water, Leo is captivated by the glamour of illusion that Pisces weaves all around her and can quickly find himself out of his depth.  Who worships Leo?  Capricorn, naturally, who works hard to gain a leadership position, while Leo simply assumes the throne—how does Leo do that, anyway?  Leo scorns Cap’s hardworking nature and finds Capricorn unglamorous (too true).  Capricorn finds favor in Gemini eyes, however, and that’s because Gemini senses that all of his beloved information, facts and data are nothing compared to Cap’s wisdom.  And who worships silly, flighty Gemini?  None other than Scorpio.  Gemini is the Fatal Attractor’s own fatal attraction, by virtue of being the butterfly even Scorpio (the Great Seducer) can’t pin down.

And there you have it.  A romp around the zodiac by way of treasure and trash.

What’s in it for you?
Take a look at the sign listed here that you trash. If you’ve ever been told (in an astrology sun-sign book or online horoscope) not to date people of that sign, this article should tell you why: because you might find it easy to seduce them, but you will lose respect for them over time. ESPECIALLY if their birthdate falls within a week of yours  (but in their own birth month, obviously).

Now take a look at the sign you treasure.  Aren’t you a little bit (or maybe, if we’re truth-telling here, a LOT) susceptible to that sign?  Isn’t it like a moth to the flame?  Can they wind you around their little finger, then leave you wondering what really happened there?  Hmm, maybe you should avoid that scene.

Now what?
Hope you had as much fun reading this post as I did writing it!  And if you’ve just found (to your dismay) that you’re in a relationship with someone entirely unsuitable, don’t panic.  Instead, consider getting a Lifelong Love reading with me about it.  I have no doubt you are with who you are with for a reason, and your Sun signs are not the whole picture of how you relate.  Not by a long shot.

(This article is about an astrological aspect called the “quincunx.” More about quincunxes here.)

Imagine a cozy domestic scene, in a kitchen filled with good smells.  Jupiter (a large matronly lady with an infectious warmth) is whipping up something nice at the stove while Saturn (a stern-looking but determined fellow with a beaky nose) gathers tools for a construction project.  They are both humming at their work.  

Jupiter:  Ready for some muffins?
Saturn:  Almost.  I’ve got to fix the plumbing first.  (rifles through his tool box)
Jupiter:  We’re going to have the best housewarming ever.
Saturn:  The house will certainly be warm if I have anything to say about it.  And not at all wet.  (he gets down on the floor, opens the cabinet under the sink and applies a wrench to the plumbing)
Jupiter:  You’ve inspired me—I’ve created a new recipe.  Here, try it—(she puts a morsel in his mouth).
Saturn:  (mumbles around the mouthful)  Wow, that’s really good!  I have no criticism to offer.
Jupiter:  You?  No criticism?  That’s really saying something.  Thank you.
Saturn:  You are open to my criticism, which makes me feel relaxed.
Jupiter:  Well that’s because you get it.  You get it about the importance of a happy, relaxed home life.  When you provide for our home, I feel supported.  It makes me want to do even more nice things to make our place more comfortable.
Saturn:  Which in turn makes me want to do the same.
Jupiter:  Right now I’m wondering why we ever argue.
Saturn:  We represent very different principles.  I’m about structure, accountability, diligence and achievement.
Jupiter:  And I’m about fun, growth, and being open to possibilities.
Saturn:  You do sometimes make promises you can’t keep, but I’m not really noticing that right now.  Right now all I want to do is fulfill on your promises, because I’m enjoying the way you make me grow.
Jupiter:  That’s nice to hear.  And you sometimes can be a real stickler, making demands about the bottom line, and pressing me for deadlines.  I’m not very good with deadlines, but when you provide the structure and integrity, I can meet them.  Together we produce less than I’m capable of promising—
Saturn:  —but together we produce something real, and it’s better than what I’d promise on my own.
Jupiter:  Exactly!
Saturn:  And thus real, concrete growth is possible.
Jupiter:  Instead of just hot air—  (wink)  
Saturn:  —and pessimism!  (wink)
Jupiter:  I think it’s because right now you’ve decided to trust me.
Saturn:  More accurately, I’ve decided to trust my own instinct about you.  And my instinct tells me to relax, because everything you do tells me you respect my needs for restraint and competency.
Jupiter:  And everything you do tells me you value the enthusiasm I bring and the growth I long for.  Thank you for that.  Big hug!
Saturn:  You know I’m not really into the huggy thing.  But I’ll submit to it anyway.
Jupiter:  Mr. Crankipants!
Saturn:  Madam Thing!
They share a brief squeeze, during which Saturn tears up and Jupiter pretends not to see it.  Then each goes back to what they were doing, feeling supported and appreciated and with a good will.  

Is this conversation happening in your home?  Perhaps it should be!

This friendly alignment between Jupiter and Saturn can allow us all to pause and appreciate the structures we often take for granted and the good things they bring into our lives.  Speaking that appreciation aloud to the strong-but-bristly providers in our lives (you know—the ones who build the structures that make life run) can relax their bristles and also open up everyone in the situation to experiencing more joy, happiness and emotional connection.  Spread the love!

This lovely trine between Jupiter and Saturn began in July of 2013 and finishes in May of 2014.  Enjoy it while you can!  Especially if your birthday falls into these dates:
Capricorns born:  December 25 through January 8
Pisceans born:  February 22 through March 8
Taureans born:  April 24 through May 8
Cancers born:  June 25 through July 10

And if you want to read about the last time Jupiter and Saturn trined, here’s a post about that too:  Effectiveness Can Be Fun—Jupiter Trines Saturn in Earth Signs

This year going with the flow brings success and fun:
Astrologers are very good at making dire predictions—but what use is that unless they can also tell you when is the BEST time to pursue new ventures?  I’m just the astrologer to let you know that this year, from June of 2013 to June of 2014 is a great time to start a new business or any project you want to go really smoothly.  And that’s because there is a very auspicious alignment of planets building up in the sky.  I’m telling you about it because it’s approaching its peak and I want you to be able to take full advantage of it before it ends.

The alignment is a set of harmonious aspects among five planets:  Saturn, Neptune, Chiron, Jupiter and Pluto.  Each of these planets has at least two harmonious connections going on right now with others of the batch.  This piles goodness upon goodness so that the summer and fall of 2013 is a very lucky and auspicious time for new enterprises of all kinds, and that goodness flows right into the spring of next year.  Most of this harmonious activity is happening in Water signs, with Pluto in an Earth sign connecting nicely with those Water signs and adding some dynamic tension too.

What these planets are up to. . .
Neptune is in Pisces
, a sign it loves to be in, bringing a tremendous sense of flow to this dynamic.  Because Neptune is involved, we have access to oceanic feelings of communion and connection, and our imaginations are fueled.  Our powers of manifestation and “dreaming things real” is at a peak.

Pluto is in Capricorn and Saturn is in Scorpio.  This combination is called a “mutual reception,” as each planet is in the sign the other rules, making them “mutually receptive” to each other’s agendas.  This alignment is all about power, purging corruption, doing the hard work of vulnerable leadership, and living each moment as if it was your last.  I’ve written more about it here.

Chiron the Wounded Healer is in Pisces, bridging the gap between material and spiritual worlds, carrying information from the physical to the metaphysical planes and back again.  You can take advantage of this through prayer, manifestation and other practices that get you into alignment with your spiritual guidance.

And finally, Jupiter will move into Cancer on June 25, 2013, and will quickly get into trine with Neptune, Saturn, then Chiron, completing the Water circuit.  Jupiter will also oppose Pluto, and bring just enough tension into the dynamic to spur all that lazy Water to action.  Jupiter in Cancer is in its all-time favorite sign to occupy, bringing a warm, nurturing feel and encouraging growth gently, as a summer rain encourages flowers to bud and open.

How does this affect me?
If you have a lot of Water in your chart, this astrological activity should feel really good, as if the rest of the world is aligning with the flow that is natural to you.  You may find yourself experiencing luck and being noticed in ways that don’t make you feel overexposed.  If you have lazy Water habits (such as living in codependent relationships, overpowering others with your emotions or draining yourself dry to serve and nurture others), these habits may be indulged this year and you could end up with no progress.  But if you decide to live your Watery side in the best way possible (by being conscious of your feelings but not dramatic, and being intuitive without being invasive), you could find yourself at the top of the heap with very little effort.

And the really good news is that if you are starting a business this year, or having a baby, you can look forward to your “project” having oodles of good karma.  Some kinds of businesses are better suited to this than others; you can see me for a consultation if you’re ready to know more.

This time period is especially good for:

  • healers
  • artists
  • nurses and caretakers of all kinds
  • midwives, doulas, ob/gyns and those involved with birthing
  • hospice workers and those who to assist peaceful death
  • any job that requires compassion and human kindness
  • spiritual and psychic helpers
  • anyone who works with children
  • financial analysts and investors, anyone who works with debt but especially those who assist people in trouble with management of their debt, including bankruptcy lawyers
  • therapists, counselors and coaches, psychologists, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts
  • hypnotherapists
  • . . . and the list goes on.

This transit runs from October of 2012 to July of 2013

Saturn is hanging around on top of Mount Olympus, when he comes upon Neptune, who is playing with magic energy.  She is casting swirls of sparkles into the air, launching comets of light and beauty, and creating distant explosions of delicious loveliness. 

Saturn:  That’s very nice stuff you’re doing there.
Neptune:  Why thank you.  It’s my specialty.
Saturn:  But it could be improved.
Neptune:  How is that?
Saturn:  By making it physical.  Here try this–
Saturn produces a paintbrush and a palette, loaded with colors, and a large canvas, already stretched.  Neptune picks up the brush and dabs it into the paint, swirls color onto the canvas.  The results are lovely.
Neptune:  Wow, this is good stuff.  What is this?
Saturn:  They make it on Earth.  It’s called paint.
Neptune:  Oh yes, Earth, I’ve been trying to get there for ages.  Human beings never listen to me.  I’d kind of stopped paying attention.  Where is it again?
Saturn points down to a very dark area below the rarified atmosphere of Mount Olympus.  They gaze at Earth, a sphere of darkness and tears.  The cries of humanity are audible.
Neptune:  Why do they have to suffer?
Saturn:  Because they’re in the material world.
Neptune:  That doesn’t look very appealing.
Saturn:  Not for someone as idealistic as you, but for me it’s a wonderland of possibility.
It’s a super-dense plane where you can build stuff.  When you build it, it stays for a pretty long time.
Neptune:  What, a couple hundred years?  Not very impressive.
Saturn: Not by our standards maybe, but by human standards, yes, impressive.
Neptune:  There’s a catch, though.  Sure, you can build things, but you have to deal with a lot of limitations, restrictions and (ugh!) hard work while you’re doing it.
Saturn:  That’s true.  It takes ambition to build things and ambition is built on fear.  If people don’t know they have limitations, why would they work to overcome them?  I remind them of those limitations, and the strong people rise to the top.
Neptune:  That’s harsh.  My contribution is different.  I provide a dream-world people can retreat to.  It’s a gentle place where the artists can find solace and fuel their imaginations.
Saturn:  Sounds like a haven for lazy people.
Neptune:  I find physical existence inherently repellant.  My dreams and visions can’t stand the weight of gravity.  They are crushed by it.
Saturn:  I understand.  You and I have very different priorities.  I like the crushing weight of physical existence and I thrive off the necessity for hard work and the opportunity to shape the material world.
Neptune:  Whereas I am uninterested in all things material—they just make me feel trapped and I’d rather exist in the non-physical, where things happen instantly, with just a thought.  We do have one important thing in common, though, and that’s a desire to make things different than they are.  I like to imagine how things could be different, more ideal.
Saturn:  While I like to work to build something better.  And what wonderful things we could accomplish together, if you were willing to allow your dreams to be infected by gross materialism and I were willing to allow my material world to be permeated by lazy, ineffective and purposeless dreams.  If we work together, we could do some very nice things for those people down there.
Neptune:  Point well taken.  Ok, what do we have to do?
Saturn:  Let’s try this, for starters. . .
He reaches out into the air and grabs some of the magic, colored energy Neptune has left there.  With a swift gesture, he shapes it into a block, which immediately turns a dark color and crashes to the ground.  Neptune blows on it, until it assumes a rounder shape and gently lifts off the ground.  It is now a beautiful, iridescent bubble with shape, texture, weight and beauty.
Neptune:  Wow, that’s actually quite nice.
Saturn:  Yes it is.  Now we just need a Human Being to deliver it to Earth.
Neptune snaps her fingers.  A Human Being appears, looking confused and disoriented.
Neptune:  You wouldn’t happen to be an artist, would you?  A visionary, a dreamer, something like that?
Human Being:  Well, yes, I suppose I am.
Neptune:  We’ve got something very nice just for you.  It’s a lovely dream. . .
Saturn:  . . .  that you can make real!  It’s a goal. . .
Neptune:  . . . inspired with true vision!
Dazedly, the Human Being allows the bubble to settle on his open palm.  Saturn snaps his fingers and the Human Being disappears.  
Neptune: (giggling) Whatever are they going to do with this?
Saturn:  I have no idea.  But it will do credit to us both.  Let’s make more!
They busy themselves at making a huge variety of the bubbles and wafting them down to Earth, where they burst over the heads of a couple million creative people.  

Are you one of the creative people who is getting a download of useful visions this year?  Saturn and Neptune are cooperating to make it easy for you.  This lovely trine between them began in October of 2012 and ends next month in July of 2013.  This means that business ideas that come from intuitive sources can be turned into dreams-come-true.  Now is the time to start or develop a business with heart.  Better take advantage of the possibilities now, while you can!

This year Neptune goes retrograde on June 7, 2013

“Wake up!” says Neptune.  “Recently I showed you that there is more to your life than what can be experienced with the physical senses.  I demanded that you look deeper.  Now I’m telling you again:  it’s time to re-dream your life.”

Today Is A Pivotal Day

When a planet turns retrograde it makes a pivot in the sky and also creates a metaphorically “pivotal” experience for human beings.  Today (June 7, 2013), that planet is Neptune.  It’s as if Neptune is telling us, “You can’t go on avoiding this change forever.  Today I’m delivering a wake-up call.”

You already know that Pisces (February 19-March 21) is the sign of the fish.  This is no accident.  In some ways, Pisceans are like ocean creatures, in some ways they are like the ocean itself.  We’ve all got at least a little* of this sign in us and managing your primal watery nature can be a challenge, Pisces, so here are some tips for the Fish in all of us:

The ocean is the primal symbol for the imagination—and Pisces, you are deeply in touch with your imagination.  You are a visionary.  Your imagination is a rich, lush place that you should visit often and draw on liberally—because there’s always more there and you will never run out of fancies, dreams, imaginings, daydreams, visions and fantasies.  Write them down.  Make them into art.  Share them with people—especially those around you who have forgotten how to dream.

This connection with the ocean blesses Pisceans with oceanic awareness.  It’s a sort of global intuition, which comes from the fact that fish feel in every direction.  Fish don’t use their eyes as much as they use their whole skin surface.  As a Piscean, you feel “vibes” or vibrations exactly as a fish does.  You live in 360-degree awareness, responding to events all around you, whether you know it or not.  This intuition is Pisces’ main superpower.

Your global intuition gives you a special sensitivity to your environment.  It spreads your awareness out, improving your peripheral awareness but making it hard to concentrate your attention and also making you easily influenced by your environment.  Place a Piscean in the wrong environment and watch that person disintegrate, while a Piscean in the right environment will thrive enormously.  Create good environments for yourself, Pisces—it’s worth the effort.

Pisces, when people accuse you of being flaky, remember that by dwelling on land, you’re out of your element all the time.  Have you ever thought about the world of a fish?  A fish is surrounded and supported by the water it lives in all the time while humans live on the ground and are subject to gravity.  A fish never falls down—and has no corresponding desire to build.  The famous Piscean laziness is a natural outcome of belonging in a world without ambition.  It leaves your average zodiacal Fish with an enviable ability to relax and go with the flow.  This means, Pisces, that you are supremely equipped for the magical state we call “flow,” because it’s your home.

Pisces, your imaginative nature makes you highly empathic.  You can easily imagine yourself walking a mile in the other person’s moccasins and your gentle ocean waves can quietly get right inside a person.  You intuitively know how to bond to others, but beware of sucking others in or of unconsciously crossing their boundaries, because not all ocean currents are benevolent.  You could be someone’s undertow and they could get lost in you.  Once you’ve gotten your tendrils of awareness and affection into all the little corners of someone’s life, when you pull away, they may suddenly feel empty, bereft, lost in an empty void that used to be filled with a loving presence—you.  Being loved by you is special—bestow it wisely.

* You don’t have to be a Pisces to be a Piscean type.  That’s because you could be an Aries (or any other sign) yet have a bunch of planets in your chart in Pisces—enough to tip the balance and leave you feeling more like Fish than Ram.

Human Being is walking his inner landscape.  He is at the docks.  There’s a pier that extends out into the water, into the fog.  There he can just see the shape of a massive sailboat, rising and falling with the swell of the waves.  Waters swirl and eddy.  Neptune and Saturn are there.  Saturn is working on the boat.  Neptune is looking over some maps.  They point him toward the gangplank.  Human Being comes aboard the boat.  Over Neptune’s shoulder, Human sees a patch of the map: “Here be dragons.”

Saturn:  Ah, now that Human Being has arrived, we can shove off.
Neptune:  You be in charge of making sure the boat is sound. I’ll steer us toward interesting visions.
Saturn:  That sounds better than the reverse!
Neptune:  Yeah, I’m not the best at safety.
Saturn:  And I’m not the best at imagination.
Human:  Good division of labor.  Where are we going?
Neptune:  Currently we’re set to go to the Island of Dreams Come True.
Saturn:  Is that the place C.S. Lewis talked about in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader?
Neptune:  The very same.
Saturn:  I seem to recall that was a scary place.  Dreams are sometimes nightmares, and if you have no control over your imagination, you can be led off into paranoid fantasies and get lost in a sea of fear.
Neptune:  Too true.  The ocean of imagination is vast and contains many things—not all of them are safe and not all of them are happy.
Human Being:  If you don’t mind, I’d really like to stick to the happy, non-scary possibilities.
Neptune:  We don’t care where we go.  You’re the one who decided.
Human:  What?
Saturn:  This is your Dream Boat, and you’ve got it set to autopilot.  It’s been this way since you were in high school.  We’re going where you always go.  And apparently, it’s not the happiest place.
Human:  Can I change that?
Neptune:  Of course.  You can create anything you want in this magical time.
Saturn:  If you harness your imagination.
Human:  I don’t know what you mean.
Neptune:  Are all your fantasies fearful ones?  Do you spend your time asking yourself, “What if…?”  Do you perpetually imagine what might go wrong and then try to fix it, instead of imagining what might go right and how to get there?
Saturn:  If you indulge paranoia, we’ll be heading to Nightmareland in short order.
Human Being:  What if what I really need is a rest?  Can we please just take a pleasure cruise?
Saturn:  If you really deserve a rest period, better take one, but you could get so much more out of this.
Neptune:  The possibilities are endless.
Saturn:  But it will take psychological work to make them actually happen in a tangible way.
Neptune:  It can be a beautiful fantasy.
Saturn:  It can be your worst nightmare.
Neptune:  You decide.
Neptune:  Manifestation is powerful now.  Whatever you can imagine, you can have.  You can manifest positive things–big, powerful ones, even if you have a habit of expecting negative things.
Saturn:  If you are willing to do the inner work.
Human:  You mean I have to overcome my own fear?
Neptune:  No, you don’t have to do anything.  You can choose to overcome your fear.  And not just fear—doubt, remorse, cynicism, all the negative feelings that stop you from building something bigger out of your life.  But we won’t force you to do it.
Saturn:  You can stay unconscious if you want to.
Neptune:  You could just go to sleep every night, lulled by the rocking of the boat.
Saturn:  But then you’d come out of this journey untouched.
Neptune:  Your life unchanged.
Saturn:  Nothing manifested, nothing built, nothing achieved.
Neptune:  Just a nice relaxing boat ride.
Saturn:  It seems like a waste.  We thought we’d tell you what was possible, so that if you choose to sleep through it, at least it was your choice.
Human:  Gee, thanks.  So what do I do now?
Neptune:  Keep your thinking positive—
Saturn:  —and pragmatic—
Neptune:  Focus on how you’d like your life to be.  Dream into that.
Saturn:  And practice letting go of fear.
Neptune:  Especially if fear has become a habit.
Saturn:  And trim your dreams down to what is doable.
Neptune:  That may make them smaller. . .
Saturn:  . . . but easier to make happen.  Look, here’s your berth.
Neptune:  Why don’t you relax and think about it?
Human Being climbs into his bed, stretches out, is lulled by the waves and soon drifts into sleep.  Neptune and Saturn smile at each other and tuck Human in.
Saturn:  What will Human do with this opportunity?
Neptune:  Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Saturn and Neptune will be traveling in a harmonious trine in Water signs from October of 2012 to July of 2013.  Read another installment here:  Neptune and Saturn Launch a Bubble of Useful Magic Energy.  What will you manifest during this magical time?

Jupiter and Uranus have returned to Pisces briefly, on their way to moving into Aries for real.  Once in Aries, Uranus will spend 7 years there, while Jupiter will whip through in just 1 year.

Uranus:  Hey, this is a little annoying, to have to return to Pisces when we’d tried Aries out and it was so much fun.
Jupiter:  Yeah, but once you leave Pisces, it will be a long time before you cycle around to it again.  Remember, I’ll be back to visit Pisces in 12 years, but it will be almost 80 years before you come back to this sign.
Uranus:  That’s true.  And we’ll be off into Aries before you know it.
Jupiter:  Besides, aren’t there things you wanted to finish in Pisces before moving on?
Uranus:  Like what?
Jupiter:  Perhaps there are a few spiritual communities you’d like to ignite.
Uranus:  You mean the few that I missed before?
Jupiter:  Yeah.  And there might be some artists out there who need one last little lightning bolt of inspiration from you.
Uranus:  I could get excited about that.
Jupiter:  There are a lot of imaginative types that could really use some startling new ideas.  How about raining some lightning bolts down on Disney, Pixar and the whole film industry?
Uranus:  Ok, now I AM excited.  There’s still time for me to spark a groundbreaking movie that could be released later.  Maybe I’ll download some insights into the brains of independent filmmakers and spark an appearance at Cannes or Sundance next year.
Jupiter:  The gift that keeps on giving.
Uranus:  Would you please tell the studio audience why you made these particular suggestions?
Jupiter:  It’s because Pisces is the sign that rules the imagination.  Pisces represents artists, dreams, imagination and especially film.  When a person goes to the movies, he is diving into the collective ocean of all-experiences-that-can-ever-be-had.
Uranus:  I’ve noticed that human beings really like imagining the ways their life could be, sometimes to escape how it is.
Jupiter:  That’s because they’re not gods, like us.
Uranus:  Who’s calling himself a god?  (smacks Jupiter’s head playfully)
Jupiter (smacking back):  I’m bigger than you are.  I’m king of the gods!
Uranus:  But I was a god before you were born!
Jupiter:  You were a flash of primordial lightning before I was born!
Uranus:  And you were a dream human beings hadn’t even invented yet!
Jupiter:  Dork!  Geek!  Nerd!
Uranus:  Fattie!  Egotist!  Jerk!
As we leave the scene, they are wrestling and attempting to duck each other, quite obviously having a great time.

Will this transit affect you personally?
If you’re a Pisces, born in the last week of Pisces, which is March 16-19, it probably will.  It also might affect you if you are a Gemini born between June 17 and 20 or a Sagittarius born between December 17 and 20 or a Virgo born between September 18 and 21.

If you are feeling unusually restless and you’ve got the desire to bust out and make really big changes, you might want to have a reading to understand what it all means for you and how long it will last.

Jupiter and Uranus are up to something really different this month—the two of them are not only coming into conjunction, but they’re also both moving into Aries.  Here’s what it might be like.

Uranus and Jupiter are in a tidepool at the edge of the ocean, sloshing around.  Uranus is wearing a hat with lightning bolts coming off it.  Jupiter is a big guy with a large trailing cloak.

Jupiter:  This has been fun, being in Pisces, sign of the ocean and dreams.  I like Pisces—spiritual expansion is natural to me and I’ve been having fun with the dreamlife of humanity since January this year.
Uranus:  Speak for yourself.  It’s been a little confusing for me, being in Pisces—and I’ve been here for six years, so you bet I’m almost done with it.  It’s not exactly my natural territory.  I think I’ve been too gentle on humanity.
Jupiter:  Sometimes gentle is good.
Uranus:  Yeah, but I really like being a force for change.  I really like turning people’s heads around.  I really like shocking and startling people with paradigm-shifting, new ideas.  It’s hard to do that when I have to be gentle and subtle, because I’m in Pisces.
The lightning bolts on his hat keep being attracted to the water’s surface and fizzling.  He looks annoyed at this.
Jupiter:  You’re going to like Aries a lot.
Uranus:  I expect to foment some real action while I’m there.
Jupiter:  It will be a relief to be in a fire sign again.  Fire signs are my favorite.  Let’s get loud.  He punches Uranus’ shoulder playfully.
Uranus:  Absolutely—let’s really knock them on their ear!
Jupiter:  That would be easier if stupid Saturn wasn’t opposing us.
Uranus:  Don’t worry about Saturn—I carry more weight than he does.  He can’t stop me for long.  I’ll be questioning his authority and de-structuring his structures in no time.
Jupiter:  Hey, look!  He points.
Near to them, beyond the pool they are in, the landscape catches fire.
Uranus:  It’s about time!
Together they sweep out of the water and into the flames.
Jupiter:  Now this is more like it!  He waves his arms and the flames flare up, hotter and higher.
Uranus:  Oh this will definitely be fun!  The lightning bolts on his hat begin to crackle.  Soon his head is a mass of sparks and he’s grinning from ear to ear.
Jupiter:  Watch out, humanity!  Change is on the way!

And indeed we’d better watch out.  These two are a powerful combination and they’ll be together in the sky until January of 2011.  Calling all superheroes:  be sure to use your powers for good!

In honor of Sagittarians everywhere, this post is about Jupiter, Sag’s ruling planet, the bringer of joy.

Jupiter is located in a sign in your chart that brings you joy.  Wherever Jupiter resides will tell a story of an area of life or a way of being which brings you sheer delight and happiness.  To do your Jupiter thing is the very pursuit of happiness for you.  The feeling you get when you do that is a sense of expansion, pleasure and lightness.  Jupiter is just plain fun.

Jupiter is also the part of us that reaches beyond ourselves and makes us grow bigger.  This part helps us develop a philosophy of life that answer’s life’s big questions and makes sense of our place in the universe.  When you are in touch with your Jupiter side, life has meaning and you have a reason to live.  You have a happiness to pursue and when you do so, you exude such positive, hopeful qualities that life rolls out the red carpet, tossing you opportunities and making you lucky.  When you are friends with your inner Jupiter, life is an adventure.

How do you find out where your Jupiter is?
If you don’t have your chart, or don’t know how to read your chart, you may want to have a reading to find out where your Jupiter is. You can contact me for a reading in person in Berkeley California or by phone. Here’s more information about getting a reading and here’s how to contact me about it. You can also make your own chart on Astro.com using these instructions I’ve made for you.

You also might know someone who knows their Jupiter sign and whose Jupiter sign is the same as yours. Jupiter takes about a year to pass through a given sign, passing through the whole zodiac in about 12 years. This means that you probably have Jupiter in the same sign as all the members of your high school graduating class and the people born  at 12-year intervals from you (i.e. those born when you were 12, 24, 36, etc, or 12, 24, 36 years before you were born). People who share your Jupiter sign will usually be people who feel good to be around, because their joy is similar to yours.

Where’s Your Joy?
When you have Jupiter in Aries, you derive joy from leaping into action.  It’s a little hard to sit still because you’d rather be in motion, making progress or getting somewhere.
Spontaneity delights you and you are never so happy as when your own action is the right one and brings delight to others.  You bounce back fast & learn well from mistakes.  Your philosophy is based on transparency and you get a lot of joy from being your truest self without apology.  To you, mutual honesty and directness are the key to any relationship.

Jupiter in Taurus people love the physical world.  If you have this Jupiter sign, you relish feeding all your senses with delicious sights, sounds, scents, tastes and textures.  Can this lead to gluttony?  You bet.  It can also lead to acquisitiveness.  But such people do generally end up with the nest egg they seek and lots of nice things to decorate it with.  And your love of food leads to natural cooking talent.  Your philosophy of life includes the importance of continuity and the idea that things should go on much the same unless there’s a really good reason to change them.

Jupiter in Gemini?  Ok, you can be a real talker, even a serious chatterbox.  You love being clever, expressing your wit and getting into wide-ranging conversations on a huge variety of topics.  You are a “renaissance person,” pulled in a number of directions, all of which give you equal joy.  In fact, you’re so multi-talented that you don’t know what to develop.  Being involved with several ideas at once brings you delight and your life-philosophy involves the importance of using one’s intelligence and seeing life logically.

People with Jupiter in Cancer are a fountain of love and nurturance for those lucky enough to be around them.  When you have this, you tend to feel emotionally secure and to feel like your emotions are ok without needing validation from others.  You spread your support around liberally and are not easily emotionally depleted.  You are sensitive to the needs of others, but not clingy or cloying.  Yours is an open kitchen and a well-trod welcome mat.  Your philosophy of life centers on the importance of family and of treating people like family.

Jupiter in Leo is very expansive and exudes noblesse oblige.  This makes you a really royal person.  Creativity gives you joy and you like to express yourself, but beware of excess self-involvement.  You can bear a lot of attention.  You are a natural leader and role model.  You are sometimes unaware of how your large expression can overwhelm others and stifle their expression.  When you make room for the creativity of others while not diminishing yourself, you are the best role model of all.  Your philosophy is about being an individual and the importance of individual will and expression.

Jupiter in Virgo is similar to Gemini.  When you have this, you can get lost in, and overwhelmed by, the details.  You find yourself trying to pan out and focus in at the same time, which can be frustrating, but on the other hand, having an abundance of Virgoan organizational energy is not a bad thing at all and you like nothing so much as a clean, fresh surface ready for use.  Your health tends to go well because you enjoy putting healthy habits in place.  Your philosophy can put a positive spin on the work ethic, partly because being efficient and industrious just feels good to you.

Jupiter in Libra people truly enjoy relating to others, which may account for your varied and interesting social life.  Your philosophy includes the tenet that life should be fair and this trips you up occasionally, when it doesn’t bear out.  You think everyone’s beliefs deserve room, except where they exclude the beliefs of others.  You can be a social magnet and a matchmaker, introducing the right people to each other and smoothing over social mishaps among your many and varied friends.  Your tolerance for people’s differences leads to a host of good connections that can pay off over time.

When you have Jupiter in Scorpio, you have a dark side that you enjoy.  Sometimes this takes the form of gallows humor and sometimes it’s about a love of the gritty, grimy side of life (a fascination with detective novels, for example).  Your philosophy includes the idea there’s no moment so dark it will not pass and that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.  Because of that, you make a good helper and guide for people who are truly at the end of their rope, because you have a high tolerance for other people’s shadow sides.  In fact, your sheer delight at seeing someone else being real while in pain is infectious–and can help that person feel normal.

When you have Jupiter in Sagittarius you like to stay mobile.  You are a pretty purely Jupiterian person, so you have a strong sense of humor, a large and benevolent presence and you are fascinated with travel and foreign cultures.  You are delighted by that which is different from you simply because it is different—that makes it interesting.  You are sometimes very restless and need to avoid getting tied down.  You have a deep well of optimism and can bounce back from just about anything.  Your life-philosophy leaves room for endless growth and expansion.

Jupiter in Capricorn people are prone to overworking because they love the sensation of discipline and focused effort.  When you have this, you are delighted by discovering what to devote yourself to and you get a lot of energy and joy from working extremely hard at it once you’ve found it.  Achievable goals inspire you and pie-in-the-sky goals annoy you.  While you are not naturally optimistic, once your skepticism is satisfied, you can show tremendous persistence.  Your philosophy is based on the idea that hard work leads inevitably to success—and for you, it does.

When you have Jupiter in Aquarius, progress is enlivening and central to your world-view—thwarting it runs counter to your philosophy.  You have a rebellious streak and quickly spot the places where old ways have stopped working.  You are happiest when there’s a little chaos going on due to a really big change in the works.  You have an abundance of ideas and enjoy taking an intellectual, experimental approach.  For you an adventure is better had in the world of ideas than in the physical world and you secretly like shaking up the old, established ways.

As a Jupiter in Pisces person, you have a deep well of faith to draw on.  You are a profoundly gentle and tolerant person, with warm affection for all living things.  You can be wise and generous with your attention and help make room for smaller beings around you to grow.  If you are religious, you’ve chosen the finest parts of your religion and tolerate or ignore the rest.  This frees you to participate in a communion with spirit that feeds your soul and gives you joy and vitality.  Your philosophy is simple: every living thing is deserving and there is room for all of us to be happy.
