There may be some shocks or upsets in relationships or money matters. Situations may get unexpectedly intense in a new or established relationship.

If you notice that things are getting more emotional or dramatic than usual, try to keep a cool head and know that this is a short-lived aspect (a day or two). If things do get to be too much, try to avoid any kind of confrontation until later on.

This may be a challenging time in social situations where some may feel or be manipulated, uncooperative or rude.  This is not the time to confront other in social situations, wait until later to discuss privately.  Venus square Pluto is not the time to push for things in group settings

This is an auspicious time to do something to further your career or for building something that will benefit you for the rest of your life.  Now is the time to make long-term plans and act on them.

This is also an excellent time to go back and get some work done that you may have avoided earlier.  No matter how boring or dirty the work may be, under this aspect you will be able to get it all done in an efficient manner.  Your employer will notice your efforts and at this time you may receive more responsibility.  If you do, you will be able to handle it well.

Apr 10 2019    Jupiter Stations  Retrograde
       24°Sg21′ R
Jupiter is going retrograde from April 10th through August 11th 2019
 when Jupiter will station direct at 24 deg Sagittarius.    Jupiter retrograde affects financial, legal, publishing, higher education, foreign matters as well as religious matters and higher knowledge.  There may be delays in funding or expansion during this time.  Issues surrounding international relations, travel, higher education, publishing, and legal matters may go on for a longer period of time as things ruled by Jupiter may be delayed and drawn out.

On a positive note, you may receive gifts or benefits from the past.  Some may finally go on that trip to a foreign place or do business in a new country.  Legal and publishing affairs may be resolved.  This is a good time to restart a business, book, or website that may not have flourished the first time it was launched.  Retrogrades are good times to redo, rework and review and with Jupiter this means going back over international opportunities, spiritual pursuits, higher education, long distance travel . . .etc.  This may be the time to go back to school or return to a previous vacation spot.  If you had started learning a new language in the past then stopped, now is a good time to pick it up again.

The idea of Jupiter going retrograde is similar to Mercury retrograde in that it is the time to go back and review past dealings with  the law,finances, education, international business, publishing, etc.  This is the time when you may gain wisdom or higher knowledge by going back over something you studied or taught before.  This is also a time to try to restart a business or educational project.

In ancient times, astrologer Abu Ma’sar writes about Jupiter retrograde in the 800’s:

 ” . . . when Jupiter recedes it is similar to a rich man subjected to a lot of bondage and therefore distressed or to a wise, sensible and careful man who submits to the mediocre anxieties of the rational part of his mind . . The stars cause offence particularly if in their receding they are in a foreign place or in their adversities or in their humiliations and especially if they are afflicted with a malevolent star in their receding: then, they are similar to an ill man whose strength is failing and who is seized by another bad thing at once. Indeed, the stars which recede alter their nature and therefore they complete their operations in a weak way.”

All retrogrades of Jupiter (or any planet) are not the same, as the sign, fixed stars,and aspects that Jupiter receives are important to study.  Jupiter in Scorpio is stronger as it is in a sign of its triplicity. This causes a planet to behave better and give more auspicious results.

Jupiter begins it’s retrograde at 24 Sagittarius on fixed star Lesath. , which is has malefic influences combined, according to George + Parker in their book on fixed stars:

Lesath “This is a small star situated on the stinger of the Scorpion.  It gives danger, desperation, immorality, malevolence and it associated with poisons.”


Apr 10 2019    Mercury    Sxt    Pluto
   23°Pi06′ D    23°Cp06′ D
People will thinking more seriously, deeply and intensely about things at this time. This is an excellent time for doing any investigation or research of any kind. Life/death/security issues are also on people’s minds.

If you have been meaning to write a letter about something important (good or bad) writing it now and sending it out will ensure that is has the most powerful impact possible.

Mediums and psychics may be getting more or better messages than usual. This is an excellent time for communicating with the other side, even if you don’t normally get messages from the other side, you may get a sign or some sort of message today.

This is also a good time to work on joint finances, bills, taxes, estates as well as any secretive matters. You may receive the alimony, insurance or other money you were owed.

This is also a good time for mystery writing, intense artwork, living wills, psychology, occult, diet, sex, health matters, cleanses, power, powerful speaking/writing of all kinds.

This is a good day to destroy any junk mail or paperwork that needs to be shred.  Purging information out of your life that is no longer relevant is a positive way to use this energy.

What you say and write today may affect a large number of people and potentially have a profound impact on your life. As with all transiting aspects, it depends on each individual’s chart how strongly a particular planetary aspect will affect them.

Apr 13 2019    Sun    Sqr    Pluto
   23°Ar07′ D    23°Cp07′ D
Leaders may be too forceful or manipulative in their approach that could lead to abusive.  Avoid getting drawn into power plays around this time that could become worse.  The good of the many supersede the benefits of one person or group.  Now is not a good time to try to persuade or influence someone to do something or it could turn against you.  A possibility of one using excessive force or underhanded means to an end are possible.
This is a powerful time to confront a problem and make a breakthrough in something that has been overwhelming or intimidating you.  Now you have the power to take charge and confront your fears – the trick is to avoid pushing too hard.

The use of imagination. Accurate intuitive thinking. Appreciation of subtleties. Artistic appreciation. Vision.

Illusion, delusion, confusion and working in seclusion are emphasized at this time.  This is a positive time for creative thinking and imagination.  This is not the best time to work out facts and figures as details may get muddled due to some missing or confusing data.

This is auspicious for researching the ocean, spirituality, or other Neptune-related endeavor.    New information may come out around this time which may cause more confusion, conspiracies and/or depression/melancholy.

Don’t take alleged facts at face value as propaganda and subliminal influences may be at work with advertising or other political campaigns.  This time is rife with misinformation and misleading ideas.

However this is a wonderful time to create or enjoy poetry, fiction, art, music, psychic phenomena, or spending time by the water.  Helping the less fortunate and even spending some time alone may be most productive and satisfying now.

 
Mar 26 2019    Venus enters Pisces
Venus in Pisces is quite lovely and signifies divine love, compassion, empathy, idealism and even fantasy. People who have Venus in Pisces in their natal chart truly love all living creatures. These are the people who will “give you the shirt off their own backs.”

Needless to say, it is also a sensitive and sentimental placement. This is a wonderful time for romance, fun, creativity, art, helping the less fortunate, or anything dealing with other people in a friendly, helpful way.

Trust your intuition with relationships and money matters and you should do well. If you are dating someone new, be careful not to over- idealize a potential partner. Things may go so well with relationships under this influence that you might be thinking that you have found “The One” only to be disappointed after the transit passes.

On the other hand, this is a wonderful time to do something fun, creative, imaginative with a partner like going to Disney World.    All in all, this is a wonderful time to enjoy time with loved ones (including pets!) spend time by the ocean, in nature, watching movies, or doing something artistic

Expect some excitement or surprise events of a positive nature in relationships, with young women, and possibly technical devices or on social media.  Venus rules love, affection, women, money and luxury items and Uranus represents the internet, new technology, rebellion, and shocking events.
This positive combination may work out to benefit women, money and relationships in a new and unusual way.  People may express their love in unusual ways around this time and it is received well.  This is a good time to make money through electronics, inventions or from thinking outside the box.  People want to express their individuality in partnerships now which will improve things for everyone.
In general this is a good time to meet new people whom you would not normally interact with.

 
Mar 28 2019    Mercury Stations Direct
   16°Pi05′ D
Mercury stops moving backwards and begins to move forward. This may result in the improvement of some matters.  Something significant may happen today, news, information and/or travel may change.  Something that was stalled or put on a back burner may start up again at this time.
 
Mar 31 2019    Mars enters Gemini

Mars now enters the sign of Gemini.  There may be more arguing now and many ideas being expressed forcefully.  Be careful not to get caught up in a storm of ideas or information which may take on a life of it’s own.  There may be a flurry of meetings, phone calls, or other communications at this time.   Information and ideas may be overflowing now.  Be sure to take a break if information/communications become overwhelming.

Pt 1. THE ASTROLOGY OF MEREDITH SUSANNA KERCHER

00.jpg

“What lives shall die. What dies shall live.”

~ Clarisssa Pinkola Estés, PhD

“A single assault touches the lives of many people. It reverberates for years.”

~ T. Pat Davix

FOREWORD

Meredith Kercher was a beautiful, happy, young woman who was thrust into the world news (and tabloids) due to her death and the depravity of the monsters who attacked her. She was mature, ambitious, loved and admired by the many people whose lives she touched. She was a rising star. Even now Meredith’s inner light radiates so brightly that the three perpetrators held responsible for her demise still bask in the outer fringes of her glow – in the dim fumes of infamy.

Meredith possessed all of the qualities that her killers lacked: honesty, dignity, beauty, style, humor, wit, wisdom, charisma, generosity, grace, compassion, and intelligence. As Arlene Kercher, Meredith’s mother stated:

“I think it happened to Meredith because she was all that they weren’t.”

A decade after Meredith passed, multiple books and movies have been and continue to be created about her. Meredith’s light shines on and affects people all over the world. Meredith Kercher was, is and will always be a star.

Comfortable social conditions. Generosity and friendliness. Big productions or gatherings. Beautiful appearances. Good-hearted, have a sunny personality, and a strong need for attention. Agenerous nature, but can be arrogant.

This is an excellent time to work on creative projects, enjoying art, music, foreign affairs, and higher education. Financial opportunities may arise. Avoid overindulging or laziness.

Jul 22 2018 Sun enters Leo

Happy birthday to all Leos.

If you are buying a gift for a Leo, make sure it is as fabulous as they are! Leos love to be the center of attention and anything that will entertain them and all of their many friends would be a right start in searching for this generous and noble sun sign’s gift.

Leos also enjoy sharing their vast amounts of love and entertainment. They love a party!

The one thing that you do not want to do is forget their birthday!

ROOAAR!! Do not upset the Lion!

Leos love to be flattered and if you want to influence them to change something – the best way to do it is in a way that makes them feel better. Never try to tell a Leo what to do or push them into something as this fixed sign will not budge an inch.
Some will say that Leos can be difficult in close relationships. Part of the reason is that any planet that comes too close to the Sun becomes combust or weakened dramatically, like Icarus’s wings. Dealing with a Leo one-to-one is not for the faint of heart. Lavishing sincere praise and plenty of tactfulness is necessary to keep the Lion or Lioness tame.

Leos key phrase is “I will” and they are born to rule.
The sun in mundane charts represents the leaders, presidents, royalty, CEO’s, PTA Moms, anyone in a position of authority. This is their time to shine and be appreciated.

Jul 12 2018    Solar Eclipse  
20°Cn41′
Traditionally the effects of eclipses were judged by how the sky appeared that night. Eclipses were originally studied to understand the effects that they had on entire cities of countries. Many years later when astrologers started delineating personal horoscopes, they could determine whether an eclipse would have a direct effect upon an individual’s life.
[This eclipse on July 12th is only viewable at the South Pole]
In ancient times eclipses were always considered bad omens.  But if the sky was cloudy and the eclipse could not be seen, then the city or country was spared any malefic effects.  So not being able to witness the eclipse was very good news.

“Eclipses were considered particularly hazardous as is shown in the communication found in the archives of Nineveh from a priest to King Ashurbanipal:

‘To my Lord the King of all Countries from your servant Bel-u. May the gods, Bel, Nabu, and Shamash bless your Majesty. If an eclipse occurs but is not observed in the capital such an eclipse is considered not to have happened. The capital means the city in which the King is staying. Now there were clouds everywhere we thus do not know whether the eclipse occurred or not. . . I have already written everything to your majesty about the portents of an eclipse that happened in the months Adarru and Nisannu. And as to the apotropaic [the turning away of evil] rites for the eclipses that are already performed, what harm can be done if there was none? . . . The great gods who live in the city of your majesty have covered up the sky and not shown the eclipse. That is what the King should know, that this eclipse has no relation to your majesty or his country. On this count the king should be happy. . . ‘” (The Encyclopedia of Astrology; Sandra Shulman; Pg 27)

Eclipses are *hot spots* and if they closely aspect a point or planet in your chart within a degree, you might have a significant event in the coming year or two.

Eclipses repeat every 19 years (approx.) and if they are prominent in a person’s natal chart, they may indicate two related and prominent events in a person’s life:  Marriage, divorce, moving, births, etc.

  • The last time we had a solar eclipse close to 20 Cancer (17 years ago) was on Jan 9, 2001.

The powerful effects of an eclipse are not often felt on the actual day of the celestial event but later on when other planets aspect the eclipse point.  Astrologers will be monitoring transits and progressions to the eclipse degree for timing of important developments for individuals and the world.

Outer planetary stations near eclipses can signify earthquakes, fires, and other significant events that affect many people or whole countries.

Jul 12 2018    Sun    Opp    Pluto
   20°Cn01′ D    20°Cp01′ R
Sun in Cancer will be opposing Pluto. This aspect can cause some extreme changes in some part of your life. While this can turn into battles with authority, at the workplace or in career matters.  This aspect can also be used positively to turn your life around. If you feel yourself getting angry about something, stop, breath, think about it.  What is making you feel this way? What is the most positive and loving way to deal with it? Is it really worth battling over this particular issue?

There may be some major changes happening in your life with relationships, finances, education, home, family, children, or health related matters, try not to get carried away and do anything that you may regret later.

When one door closes, another one opens. Remain positive and constructive in times of adversity. You may realize that the only thing to fear is fear itself. Use your energies towards something positive and you will be greatly rewarded in the end.

Pluto is a very powerful planet. If used correctly, it can transform your life to the highest height. If not, it could help destroy you, so be aware of how you focus your energy for the next two days and use it positively.

One beneficial way to use this energy is to clean out any clutter at home.  Recycle and/or throw out anything that is no longer useful.  This aspect may be obsessive at times so focus that intense energy towards research or learning something new.

Things that you do today and tomorrow could set you on the track of success or failure, it’s all up to you!

Beware of abuse from those in positional power.  Be careful when dealing with any authority/government figures or in professional matters as things could become intense.

Possible abuses or rudeness from people in the workplace are likely in the next couple of days, try not to let their hurtful and callous behavior cause you to lose your temper.   Use any stressful experience with others to make yourself stronger and wiser.

 
Jul 12 2018    Solar Eclipse  
20°Cn41′
Traditionally the effects of eclipses were judged by how the sky appeared that night. Eclipses were originally studied to understand the effects that they had on entire cities of countries. Many years later when astrologers started delineating personal horoscopes, they could determine whether an eclipse would have a direct effect upon an individual’s life.
[This eclipse on July12th is only viewable at the South Pole]
In ancient times eclipses were always considered bad omens.  But if the sky was cloudy and the eclipse could not be seen, then the city or country was spared any malefic effects.  So not being able to witness the eclipse was very good news.

“Eclipses were considered particularly hazardous as is shown in the communication found in the archives of Nineveh from a priest to King Ashurbanipal:

‘To my Lord the King of all Countries from your servant Bel-u. May the gods, Bel, Nabu, and Shamash bless your Majesty. If an eclipse occurs but is not observed in the capital such an eclipse is considered not to have happened. The capital means the city in which the King is staying. Now there were clouds everywhere we thus do not know whether the eclipse occurred or not. . . I have already written everything to your majesty about the portents of an eclipse that happened in the months Adarru and Nisannu. And as to the apotropaic [the turning away of evil] rites for the eclipses that are already performed, what harm can be done if there was none? . . . The great gods who live in the city of your majesty have covered up the sky and not shown the eclipse. That is what the King should know, that this eclipse has no relation to your majesty or his country. On this count the king should be happy. . . ‘” (The Encyclopedia of Astrology; Sandra Shulman; Pg 27)

Jul 10 2018    Jupiter Station Direct
        13°Sc20′ D

Jupiter has been retrograde since March 8, 2018 and today will station direct.  This signifies that something positive or some sort of expansion that was held back since last March will start to work or manifest.

At this time court cases, partnerships, travel, higher education, foreign people/places, or religion, luck and possibly money may finally arrive.  Something that you may have been struggling for the past four months may now start working or work out.

This is a positive time to begin a journey, whether mental or physical and to explore new ideas and philosophies.  Now is a positive time to publish, post blogs, videos, or anything online as it may become more successful.  Something that you posted back in March may start to become popular now for example.  Another way this may work out is something that you posted on ebay in the past few months may suddenly now be sold or get a lot of bids.
