Saturday, March 1st, 2014, 1:59am, CST: our Sun (consciousness) & our Moon (instincts) are both at 10*39 ethereal, mystical Pisces; and like a healing, spiritual dream…the luminaries are right in-between visionary, idealistic Neptune at 5* Pisces & the wounded healer Chiron at 13* Pisces. This group embodies innumerable qualities of the creative imagination, artistry, unconditional love, healing, cosmic consciousness, compassion, visualization, channelship & deep levels of inspiration.
Neptune, God of the Sea, is the home planet of watery Pisces; on the esoteric level it stimulates inner vision & represents the desire to reunite with Spirit. “The ocean is a suitable symbol for Neptune because of it’s depths, it’s constant movement, it’s mystery, it’s value as a symbol for the beginning & end of life, the place of emergence & disappearance.” (not sure of the source of this quote)
Allow yourself to be free of escapism, illusion or deceptions, especially self-deception, during this intangible Pisces New Moon time; boundaries are dissolved which emphasizes the qualities of connecting, merging, uniting, &/or confusion, disorientation, lack of discrimination…Stay grounded & be open to spiritual (whatever that may mean for you) guidance where your ego takes a back seat.
Chiron at 13* Pisces, an agent of healing, works through awareness; when IT changes that is an important transition associated with our human potential. Embracing the shadow is as important as seeking the light. Mind & body are connected by awareness.
May your soul plan evolve with grace and beauty, dignity and love.
For the more astrologically inclined;

A New Moon time…birth of something new, fresh, innovative…an idea, a behavior, an attitude, a creation. The seeds are planted although we don’t see the results yet…the dark & unseen possibilities. The Moon (the unconscious) is conjunct our Sun (consciousness) at 10*55 intuitive, friendly, humanitarian, innovative, universal & revolutionary Aquarius on Thursday, January 30th, 2014, 3:38 pm, CST.
The electric, genius, radical disruptor Uranus, now at 9* Aries, is associated with communicative air-sign Aquarius. This is the transmitter that can shock us, shake us up & wake us up! It illuminates like a bolt of lightning. Meet the challenge & expect the unexpected while being calm, loving, giving & sharing.
Both Sun & Moon together in the New Moon phase emphasize the originality, the future-oriented, progressive, tolerant & inventive Aquarian qualities. Each of us has this sign somewhere in our natal birthchart; depending upon the birth data, some have stronger Aquarian energy than others. There may be times that the aloofness, detachment, inconsistency, unpredictability & opinionative nature of this independent freedom-loving rebel can be hard to take. Self-awareness, moderation & balance are key.
Social, sensual Venus retrograde at 13*34 earthy Capricorn is currently conjunct (sitting right next to) complex, cathartic Pluto at 12*17 Capricorn. This describes extreme intensity & transformation, possibly unbalanced passion, in areas of partnerships, relationships, harmonizing & peacemaking for people, countries, ideologies, etc. Venus turns Direct (moving forward) on Jan. 31st…therefore January 31st & Feb 1st, 2014, are as close as Venus & Pluto get to each other until they are conjunct again in Feb. 2019.
I like the line in the AVICII song “Wake Me Up” that says “life is a game made for everyone and LOVE is the prize”.
Expansive, philosophical, optimistic Jupiter retrograde at 12*21 emotional, protective Cancer AND sudden-change artist Uranus at 9*24 assertive, daring, spontaneous Aries do a big-time challenge to our dynamic duo Venus/Pluto during this New Moon.
You may have read information on this blog about Uranus squaring Pluto, occurring seven times from 2012-2015; marking a long-term scenario, on a world-wide transforming scale of breaking us free from the status-quo collective, affecting structured world hierarchies (the money system, government, the church, business, corporations, the authorities). Pluto does not destroy anything that has not grown toxic. Pluto is about Power & the use or misuse of it. Yes, we signed up for this…See sidebar for more on Uranus/Pluto.
January 31st is the Chinese New Year…year of the Horse.
Mercury turns Retrograde on Feb. 6th, 2014

~Astrology only correlates to reality, it does not cause it~
Wednesday, January 1st, 2014, at 5:14am, CST: what a dynamic, potentially disruptive & perhaps over-whelming New Moon!! Something new is to be revealed & it could be YOU.
Due to transforming Pluto’s prominent placement on the first day of January, we have an awakening opportunity now to release more of the toxic dredges from our deep, hidden, unseen, invisible core of self…to bring on death of the old, clearing out, cathartic purging, regeneration & renewal. You are the only one who has the ability to carry out this rebirth process. Behavior, feelings or thoughts that are negative, destructive, manipulative, controlling or vindictive will delay new birth… I will take one step at a time…self-empowerment!
- Sun (conscious self) & Moon (instinctual self) are both now at 10*57 ambitious, disciplined, conscientious & patient Capricorn. This New Moon is part of a powerful stellium of planets in efficient, reliable, organized, responsible Capricorn beginning with metamorphic Pluto at 11* Capricorn, sitting right in-between the luminary duo & communicator Mercury at 12*51 Capricorn with Venus near the end of this earthy, material sign. Everyone will be experiencing this strong electromagnetic energy in some area of their life which is shown on the birth chart.
- The Sun, Moon, Pluto & Mercury conjunction (close to the same degree) form one piece of the challenging mathematical aspects to courageous Mars, to expansive Jupiter & to electrical, unpredictable Uranus during this intense New Moon. These alignments are called a Cardinal Grand Cross which indicates major stress, tension & growth potential through integration of balancing opposing urges & productivity through focusing of energy. For example, instead of being impatient, dissatisfied, overcommitted & forceful one could choose to be selectively active, direct & purposeful.
The goddess Venus, retrograde at 26*43 Capricorn, is the energy transmitter of relationships, love, values, peace, harmony & balance of self & with others. Venus alone is NOT making any major aspect to other planets. However, the very passionate drive & assertive initiative of Mars currently at 11*52 social, artistic, other-oriented Libra (natural home base of Venus), definitely brings all manner of relating & creating balance to the center stage of life.
Serious, concentrating, restrictive Saturn, the transmitter associated with Capricorn, as “the Teacher” helps us to reach goals & patiently deal with limitations. Saturn is in resourceful Scorpio (from 2012-2015) currently at 20* & is still in a flowing aspect with retrograde Jupiter at 16* Cancer… emphasizing a space in time to let go of fears & continue our amazing dedicated work in transforming ourselves.
I like to remember the Four Agreements by Toltec shaman don M. Ruiz…
• Be Impeccable with Your Word
•Don’t Take Anything Personally
•Don’t Make Assumptions
•Always Do Your best

~As Above So Below~
NEW MOON, Monday, December 2nd, 2013, 6:22 pm, CST: we will be in immersed in the expansive, fiery, adaptable Sagittarian electromagnetic energy field as we experience both the conscious Sun & instinctual Moon at the exact same degree of 10*59 optimistic, enthusiastic, visionary Sagittarius. A New Moon is always a time of new beginnings. What are your dreams? What seeds are you going to plant?
The symbol for intuitive, philosophical, open-minded Sagittarius is the archer aiming the arrow upward/outward toward great heights, aspiring for the “truth” & self-improvement. The well-known phrase here is “I see the goal, I reach the goal, and then I see another.” Very idealistic & hopeful.
Not only a seeker of the meaning of life… spontaneous, romantic Sag is also represented by the freedom-loving, somewhat wild, independent, adventurous & jovial centaur who often just wants to have fun!! Nothing in Excess are worthy Sufi words to keep in mind!
Traveling (in or out-of-body), the outdoors/nature (don’t fence me in!) & higher mind pursuits are very important to the Sag part of us, emphasized if it is your Sun sign, or Moon, Ascendant, planets in 9th house, etc. It has a place in everyone’s birth chart. Be aware of the underbelly of this sign possibly exposing opinionated attitudes, impracticality, tactlessness & extravagance.
Due to Thanksgiving & all, this blog is short & almost too late but here it is! (funny that Thanksgiving is in Sagittarius, speaking of excess)
I listen to Jonathan Overby on PBS Wisc. on Saturday nights & recently caught words to an African song? I liked that went something like this…
“my friend, my friend… this life may be long, this life may be short…manage it in a way that suits you…”

Scorpio New Moon/Solar Eclipse 11.3.2013 October 31, 2013Posted by cosmicsense in astrology, New Moons, Scorpio, Solar Eclipse.

YES! YES! YES! Let’s have an amazing transformative time during this introspective, INTENSE Scorpio New Moon & Solar Eclipse! The New Moon phase is exact early on Sunday, November 3rd, 2013, at 6:50 am, CST; both Sun & Moon at 11*16 resourceful, determined, passionate Scorpio.
Complex Scorpio is all about transformation on every level.. death & regeneration…physical, emotional, mental, psychological & spiritual. It is a fixed water sign. The quality of being fixed can range from sustainment, preservation & stability to stubbornness & resistance to change. The water element refers to the feeling principle; with attributes of nurturance, the mysterious, the hidden, the unconscious, deep emotions, sensitivities & the psychic realms. We all have this energy somewhere in our chart, but some have much emphasis upon it, such as the Sun, ascendant, Moon, 8th house planets or any transmitters in the Scorpio electromagnetic field.
Warrior Mars was the early ruler of Scorpio until cathartic Pluto was discovered. (I still consider it a planet). Pluto definitely plays a major role in our current Cosmic scene as it represents those elements which have not yet been integrated into our collective consciousness. As the God of the Underworld, many pitfalls lurk here; obsession-compulsion, jealousy, hatred, abuse, domination of others, manipulation, taboo areas, power-hungary, violence…you get the idea.
The awesome power & magic of regenerative Scorpio comes with the achievement of self-mastery. Constantly giving birth to the self; purging, cleansing, forgiving (of self too), healing, revitalizing & renewal… allowing transformation on a deep level will naturally facilitate the healing gifts which can then help others.
Of course adding to the intensity of life we’re right on the heels of quick-change Uranus at 9*25 fiery Aries squaring (challenging) Pluto at 9*25 pragmatic Capricorn; they are exactly 90* from each other on Nov. 1st. We experience the ramifications for quite a while & we have 3 more exact squares between these two dynamic spheres through to March 2015. See sidebar for more.
The New Moon symbolizes new beginnings, not yet visible or even consciously known, as in the germinating of the seed beneath the ground. This is the cyclical phase of creation & new birth. The manifestation of a new self being born fits the Scorpio vision energy of transformation. The magnificent vitality of the Eagle is one of the symbols of perceptive, magnetic, reserved Scorpio. The Moon is right in-between the Earth & our Sun now during this Solar Eclipse. We are clearing up some old issues, etc. in order to more freely embrace the future.
This particular Cosmic situation has so much potential because of the multitude of aspects to Saturn, Moon, Sun, North Node & Mercury, which are all sitting closely together in a powerful Scorpio stellium. (group of planets very close to the same degree). We came to Earth to go through these changes & we can do it!
Mercury turns Direct on Sunday, Nov. 10th, 3:12pm, CST. Hopefully the external reality confusion & mistakes will be decreasing.
The present moment may not always be an easy place to be but what else do we really have? I’m done with holding on…I’m just going to flow~~~

~As Above So Below~
We encounter an earthy, practical Virgo New Moon early Thursday morning: Our Sun (will, purpose, the conscious self) & Moon (emotional patterns & needs, sensitivity & responsiveness) are both at 13* skillful, conscientious Virgo on September 5th, 2013, at 6:36 AM, CDT.
This New Moon brings in fresh energy available for efficient functioning; use this highly developed mentality in a grounded, sincere & observant manner as you spontaneously & instinctively plunge into new experiences. Pay attention to the details but don’t be too analytical or critical of self or others which can block the flow.
Rational, versatile, communicative Mercury, home planet of Virgo, is also in discerning, precise, organized & technical Virgo at 23*30.
The harmonious trine aspect between the Sun/Moon duo & cathartic Pluto at 9* Capricorn facilitates the expression of the Virgo path of clarity & wholeness in ways that are life-transforming, healing & revitalizing. Profound changes for growth & evolution are possible now in the area of self-refinement. Facing the shadow parts of self requires time apart to analyze experiences & reactions.
We still have the ever increasing intensity building up, mirrored by other planetary aspects. Taking good care of the body & mind makes it easier in the long run. Staying in touch with our deeper emotions & instinctual nature curbs the exaggerated Virgo trait of becoming too orderly & efficient, and exhibiting unhealthy compulsions. Allow your intuitive perceptions to guide you. Onward folks!

~Everyone has every sign & every planet somewhere in their birthchart~
New Moon: our Sun & Moon are both at 14*35 radiant, heart-centered, creative Leo which is exact at 4:51pm, CDT, on Tuesday, August 6th, 2013.
This is the Moon phase of New Beginnings. What seeds are you planting? Where do you want your energy to go? What are you focusing on? The transmitting Sun is the home planet associated with electromagnetic Leo… the most vibrant, revitalizing, powerful fire-sign. The Sun symbolizes the will; the power urge, the authority, the leader, the life-giving force. Leo has to do with pride & ego; Leo wants to shine, to be in the center, to perform. This part of us has potential to be very generous, loving, romantic, creative, entertaining, dramatic & loves to be appreciated. It represents children & the child within.
We have a complicated mix of stressful & helpful aspects among the planets today; with some of longer duration than others. Because of the few summer days left calling for our attention, I am keeping this very short. Hope you find time to play during these summer days!

~As Above So Below~
Early Monday morning, July 8, 2013, 2:15 am, CDT: We may wonder where we belong on planet Earth during this Cancer New Moon. Where are we comfortable? Are we feeling secure, safe, nurtured…who is our family? What do we call home? Our conscious Sun & unconscious Moon are both exactly 16*18 sensitive water-sign Cancer emphasizing vulnerable emotions; our reactions/responses to others & the environment (visible or invisible) is our prime focus. Psychic, receptive Cancer planets operate instinctively ”from the gut”…the moodiness of the Moon in its own sign can be problematic sometimes because it is very strong…take a moment before you speak, write, send thoughts & consider what is for the highest good of all. (message to self…I have 2 transmitters in Cancer)
++New Moons symbolize New Beginnings++
Communicator Mercury (data operator) at 18* Cancer is right next to Sun & New Moon. How we think & reason, how we express ourselves to others will definitely be connected to our feelings & lunar imagination. This conjunction of three orbs are opposite transforming Pluto at 10* Capricorn; light is shed on the inner, hidden depths of our unconscious & old material may be surfacing to be released & healed.
There are many other astrological factors occurring at this time, including the next approaching, ever-potent progressive, rebellious Uranus in action-oriented, aggressive Aries square (challenging aspect) complex, intense Pluto in organized, cautious Capricorn; They will be exactly 90 degrees* to each other again on Oct.31/Nov.1st, 2013. Check out details on sidebar…Uranus square Pluto.

~As Above So Below~
Saturday, June 8th, 2013, 10:57 am, CDT: The 3 eclipses are over, but here comes another New Moon! Both Sun (conscious self) & Moon (unconscious self) are at 18* adaptable, diverse, verbal Gemini spotlighting communication & mobility in multiple forms. A New Moon symbolizes the beginning of a new cycle…this one is loaded with a variety of interactions, mental agility & new experiences.
We also have daring, fearless, spontaneous Mars at 5* Gemini with the Sun & Moon at 18* Gemini; a little further ahead is expansive, optimistic, generous Jupiter at 26* Gemini. Many thoughts, ideas & even actions pertaining to daily life are constantly popping up, changing or morphing quickly into something else…all compete for my attention, begging to be acted upon. In my home every room I enter reveals new tasks or ideas to ponder. And then there’s gardening…still a bit chilly to plant where I am.
The planet associated with the sign of curious Gemini is perceptive, versatile, fleet-footed Mercury, mythological Messenger of the Gods; now at 11*47 sensitive, emotional Cancer sitting next to loving, harmonizing, artistic Venus at 6*49 imaginative Cancer. Our reasoning capacities, fact gathering & interpreting abilities, along with Venusian sociability are colored by our instinctive reactions & feelings during this New Moon. These powerful emotional currents can feel tense & stressful. Take care of your nervous systems (gardening & meditating for me); watch for impatience, high-strung restlessness, inconsistencies, indecision & superficiality.
Receptive, nebulous Neptune turns Retrograde Friday, June 7th, at 5* sensitive, compassionate, impressionable Pisces (it’s home sign) & it will be moving “backwards” until mid-November 2013 when it turns Direct at 2* Pisces. Intangible, idealistic Neptune is the cosmic solvent, the dissolver of form, signifying the mystical & psychic realms, the visionary, the dreamer, musician, artist, healer, drug dealer, deception, illusion, delusion…spiritual strength or escapist tendencies, seeking the path of least resistance..(er, like watching too many Netflix movies?!!) The retro period offers us another opportunity to embody Piscean qualities of surrendering to something greater than the self, unconditional love, non-judgment (of self too) as we evolve into wholeness.
“The joy of Being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form, possession, achievement, person or event–through anything that happens. That joy cannot come to you–ever. It emanates from the formless dimension within you, from consciousness itself and thus is one with who you are.” Eckhart Tolle
The Summer Solstice occurs at 12:04 am early Friday morning, June 21st, 2013, CDT; this is the exact moment when our traveling Sun enters the first * degree of the electromagnetic field of water-sign Cancer.

Taurus New Moon/Solar Eclipse 5.9.2013 May 6, 2013Posted by cosmicsense in astrology, New Moons, Solar Eclipse, Taurus.

We experience an Earthy Taurus New Moon/Solar Eclipse on Thursday evening, May 9th, 2013, at 7:28 pm, CDT. Sun & Moon sit together at 19*31 sensual, practical, possessive & artistic Taurus along with assertive Mars at 14* Taurus, South Node (path of least resistance) at 16* Taurus & communicator Mercury at 17* Taurus. Wow!
A whole lot of grounded, steady, calm & productive Earthiness may be just what we need…the stability of character & purpose, resourcefulness, patient perseverance, enduring affection & friendship & the healing touch of superabundant vitality sounds good… the seeds germinate underground during the New Moon phase of new beginnings, and if you choose, can potentially manifest these qualities wherever you go.
Taurus is the natural home of Venus, goddess of love, pleasure, values, beauty, harmony & self-worth; attracting whatever our 5 senses desire…as it operates in the tangible, material world. This fixed sign gravitates toward physical comfort at times challenging the need for change… letting go of the status quo & a familiar lifestyle could be very difficult. Symbolized by the Bull, the determined, thorough, loyal, dependable, sensible & stubborn Taurus can get things accomplished. However the same Bull can also become very enraged when provoked. And super stubborn.
The North Node (new direction) at 16* in-depth, powerhouse Scorpio is opposing our stellium (Sun, Moon, Mercury, South Node & Mars) in Taurus. Scorpio is a fixed, emotional water sign & describes intensity, iron will & determination, passion, courage, psychic-accurate observation, reserve & self-control. Use this power for self-empowerment, rather than trying to control situations or others.
A Solar Eclipse is a cosmic event that occurs during a close &/or exact New Moon when the Moon (the past) is positioned in-between the Earth (the present) & the Sun (the future). The lunar orb blocks out part of the sun’s light of consciousness, flashing us back into the past in order to integrate our emotions & feelings; an opportunity to process the memories, conditioning & old patterns in order to more freely embrace the future. Hidden insights or unacknowledged achievements may also surface as part of this awakening unless we allow an incomplete, limited awareness to cloud our perspective between what to let go of & what to keep. Trust yourself.
Monday, May 20th, 2013, our solar orb moves into airy, high-gear, communicative Gemini; THIS IS THEE DAY of the 3rd exact square (90 degree angle) between URANUS at 11*15 Aries and PLUTO at 11*15 Capricorn. We’ve lived through two of these Uranus-Pluto exact squares in 2012, & will have four more, finishing up in 2015. The world as we know it will change whether we like it or not…in some ways healthier & life-affirming, some ways more destructively. I choose what is for my highest good (or my best effort), empowering myself by fusing with forces greater than my own ego.
On Friday, May 24th, there is a Sagittarius Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse…more on that in the next blog.
~Each time we expand higher in awareness, we go deeper into the subconscious to rework conflicts & karmic blocks…
and the battle for balance continues~
