February 2019 Planet Transits

February 1, 2019

MARS is featured this month, moving into fire sign ARIES on 2/05/19. This is its own sign, where its energy is strong and healthy.

I’m trying a new format this month, going through each Rising Sign (so I hope you know yours, in the Vedic Astrology system; if not, contact me for a reading).  I’ll discuss how each relevant planet’s situation will effect each Rising Sign (or if your natal Moon is that sign, as well).

First I’ll list the dates of planet transit shifts, then get into the discussion, below that:

2/05/19 – Mars in Aries, until 3/22/19.

2/06/19 – Mercury enters Aquarius, until 2/24. Then it enters Pisces, its sign of Debilitation.

2/12/19 – Sun will be in Aquarius until 3/14.

2/17/19 – Mercury is now out of combustion (being too close to the Sun), which is helpful to improve communications across the board, as well as improve tactfulness and diplomacy.

2/19/19 – Full Moon in LEO. This is a good placement for those with Cancer Rising, as it is their house of family, wealth and communication. It may bring Leos a more inward feeling, for it rules their 12th house of solitude or isolation.

2/24/19 – VENUS enters Capricorn.

Aries Rising – The Ruler of your chart moving into your 1st house of self, body and personality will serve to energize you, so your natural flow of ambition, courage, and feeling action-oriented will prevail. Watch for doing things too hastily now.  When the Sun enters Aquarius, that brings success to your house of income, gain and fulfillment of desires.  The full moon will be beneficial in a good house for you. Mercury’s contribution is also positive up until it enters your 12th house (Pisces) on 2/24.  Then your health and vitality may not feel at its peak.  Venus’ entry into Capricorn brings blessings to your career house.

Taurus Rising – The Mars transit through your 12th house (Aries) is not as positive. Expenses may get activated by this transit.  However when Venus, the ruler of your chart, enters Capricorn on 2/24, this is a great help, for it is moving from your house of vulnerability into the best house (9th), increasing your good luck and good fortune.  This will help you feel like yourself again. 

Gemini Rising – Mars crossing your house of income nicely stimulates cash flow now.  The ruler of your chart, Mercury, getting out of the 8th house (vulnerabilities, transformation) and moving into Aquarius on 2/6, will restore a sense of connection with Natural Law and Dharma. Some travel may occur.  Then when Mercury enters Pisces 2/24, it is a boost to your career, and that will be your focus.  Mercury going non-combust on 2/17 is helpful to you on several levels.  Venus in Capricorn on 2/24, may increase some vulnerable feelings and affect your romantic relationships, which are already under some pressure with Saturn traveling through your 7th house since September, 2017.

Cancer Rising – The February transits of Mars, the Sun, and Mercury are all beneficial to you, in several ways, including career and income. The full moon will be auspicious for you, as well.  Venus once it is in Capricorn, is positive for your relationships.

Leo Rising – Mars in Aries is an improvement, as will be the Sun leaving your 6th house of conflict, enemies, rivals and competitors, to enter your 7th house of partners, marriage and travel on 2/12, making you feel closer to your partner. Mercury there is a plus as well. Once it moves into Pisces on 2/24, you will need to watch your spending, and may experience some skin or nerves issues.

Virgo Rising – Mars in Aries is not the most fun transit for you, as that is your 8th house of vulnerability.  Watch for getting “overheated” and your energy level may not be as great now, since Mars also rules your 3rd house of vitality.  Things are better with Mercury out of combustion on 2/17.  While Mercury transit Aquarius, your best use of this 6th house transit will be using your astute problem-solving abilities and being of service to others. It’s an easier time for you once it enters Pisces on 2/24, even if it is debilitated in that sign. Venus in Capricorn also on 2/24, is helpful to both your learning and teaching abilities, and contributes to your success. The full moon in Leo on 2/19 is your 12th house so their may be an inward or spiritual focus on that day, but be careful not to spend too much then.

Libra Rising – You will enjoy Mars lighting up your relationship house, which it owns. Nice. Especially after its less pleasant 6th house transit you’ve been experiencing.  Mercury while in Aquarius is positive, but once in Pisces, not as much fun. With your natural instinct for harmony and balance, you will get through that time.  Sun when in Aquarius, is also positive, for income and gain, which the full moon this month will also contribute to.  The ruler of your chart, Venus, going into Capricorn on 2/24, will connect you more with home, and friends, so that should be an enjoyable transit.

Scorpio – Mars in Aries…that is your 6th house, so you may find yourself confronting some inner or outer “enemies” or rivals, and perhaps feeling more feisty and competitive now. Mercury’s transits are both positive house placements for you. The full moon will be a good one, too, occurring in your 10th house of career and action. Venus has been fine for you where it is in Sagittarius, but will be a benefit to your vitality when it enters Capricorn.

Sagittarius – The Mars and Mercury transits are mostly positive this month, though you may have some issues with a child, with whom some anger could erupt. The full moon is auspicious, in your best house (9th). Sun in Aquarius is good for projects and getting things accomplished, using your hands. Venus moves into your 2nd house, helping to improve money matters 2/24. There is still task-master Saturn in your first house and it remains there until 1/20/20.

Capricorn – The Mars transit will be good for real estate matters for you, while it is in Aries, so that lasts well into next month. The Sun’s move into Aquarius takes some pressure off you as well, and is better for money issues. The full moon occurs in your 8th house so you may feel some emotional vulnerability or isolation at that time. Mercury’s transits will be okay for you. Once Venus enters your first house, that is a real highlight of the month for you, being good for the areas of career, success and romance. It remains there until 3/21. This may help some of the sting out of Saturn, the lord of your chart, still being in your 12th house of loss, expenses and isolation (until 1/20/20), as well as lunar node Ketu remaining in your 1st house until 3/23.

Aquarius – Aries brings you more energy this month.  The Sun crossing your first house may bring a partner closer to you. The same influence comes from the full moon in your 7th house of partners on 2/19. Mercury’s transits are good, first for a greater emphasis on romance, and making you feel sexy, and then once in Pisces, more focus on finances. Venus once in Capricorn 2/24, may bring foreign travel, greater spending or “bed pleasures.”

Pisces –  You will feel more comfortable with fiery Mars out of your 1st house of self and now in your 2nd house of wealth and communication. It can do you some good there, in those areas, but watch for letting irritation or anger creep into your communications.  Mercury in Aquarius is not such a good transit for partnerships, and you may also have some vehicle expenses. It’s better for you once it moves into Pisces on 2/24. On that day Venus moves to Capricorn, which is excellent for both energy and earnings.  The full moon occurs in your 6th house where it may increase some worries.

Just a reminder that your own personal planetary cycles (Dashas) carry more weight than most transits. Please consult me for a personal reading to see what those influences may be for you now. 720-448-3742.  Also, the big excitement occurs next month, when the lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu change signs on 3/23. Stand by for the March report and how this big shift will affect you…it only occurs every 18 months.

January, 2019 New Year Planet Blog

January 2, 2019

Are you ready to jump into the new year and play among the stars? What a great time of year to get a personal reading. Once you know your Vedic chart, my monthly Blog posts will make a lot more sense to you.  Contact me at 720-448-3742 to set up a session and thank you for sharing this info with your interested friends.

January 1st – Both Moon and VENUS enter Scorpio today, joining benefic Jupiter who is already there. Our water sign friends will feel more emotional, affectionate and sensual today, attracting interest from partners and others.  Libras will enjoy a warm connection to family during this Venus transit of their 2nd house, as well as a good flow of finances. Taurus Rising and Moon sign individuals will enjoy their relationship at deeper levels now, and possibly some travel. VENUS stays here until Jan. 29th.

January 5th  – Mercury becomes combust the Sun today, on this New Moon in Sagittarius day. There will now be a total of FOUR planets crossing this fire sign. Saturn has already been combust for some time. New Moons are a good time for new beginnings or rituals to increase abundance etc.  There is such a mixture of conflicting energies now for those with Sagittarius Rising or Moon signs. There can be feelings of vulnerability and obstacles, yet some positive financial results as well. With two planets combust in this sign, they will feel some inner tensions and restlessness, for sure.

January 6th – There will be a partial solar eclipse today, in the sign of Sagittarius today.  The area of visibility will be NE Asia   northeast Asia, including BeijingIrkutsk in Russia, SeoulTaipei, and Tokyo and the north Pacific. Eclipses are never auspicious and the areas of visibility are where the impact will be felt the most.

January 14th- The SUN enters earth sign Capricorn. Here the Sun is not in a friend sign’s and will be traveling through the 6th house from LEO, which is ruled by the Sun, bringing some discomfort, anxiety, stress, obstacles or health issues for those with Leo Rising or Moon signs.  Those with Capricorn Rising or Moon signs will feel some burdens that may include having unexpected bills pop up that must be paid, and going through changes that affect their love of a consistent routine, with their 8th ruler now crossing their 1st house of self, body and direction of their life.

January 18th – SATURN goes non-combust, bringing some relief for Capricorns and Aquarians, which are the signs that Saturn rules.

January 20th – Mercury enters Capricorn.  Here Mercury will be traveling with the Sun and the south node of the Moon, Ketu.  Those ruled by Mercury, the Virgos and Geminis, may feel greater intuitive tendencies now, which a Mercury/Ketu conjunction can bring.  Capricorns will have mixed results with this planet line up and swing between feeling talkative and secretive.

January 20th-21st – No doubt you have already been hearing much talk about this “super blood wolf moon eclipse.” Starting Jan. 20, a total lunar eclipse, or blood moon, that coincides with a supermoon, will be visible throughout the United States. The event starts late in the evening Jan. 20 and finishes during the wee hours of Jan. 21. The total phase of this total lunar eclipse will be visible from North and South America, and western parts of Europe and Africa. Central and eastern Africa, Europe, and Asia will see a partial eclipse of the Moon. For the Mountain Time zone, the eclipse will be at its point of maximum fullness at approximately 10:15 p.m. on January 20th. Again, the classical Vedic text recommend not looking at eclipses, though I understand the temptation to do so. The event symbolizes the malefic north node of the Moon, Rahu, trying to “swallow” or put out the light of the Moon, one of two significant luminaries in our solar system. You can google and read more about the meaning of eclipse in Vedic Astrology. This particular eclipse will occur in the water sign CANCER, which the Moon rules. Thus it will have significant impact on those with Cancer Rising or Moon signs. Moon also stands for mind and emotions, for all charts.  Events may occur leading up to and during this celestial occurrence that reflect certain emotional trauma or suffering, especially for the Cancerians of the Vedic zodiac. I myself plan to “lay low” that day! Fortunately “this too shall pass” as is the case with all eclipses. Not fun while such challenges are going on, of course.

January 29th – Venus enters Sagittarius.  Here Venus joins its friend Saturn, bringing more playfulness and enjoyment to those with this fire sign Rising or Moon signs, lightening the load the Sags may have been feeling with just task-master Saturn there for some time.  Librans will have feel a spurt of creativity, while this 8th house transit for Taureans, may create some feelings of vulnerability or some type of transformation.

All the best, from the Sunshine Corner, here in Boulder, CO.  Tel: 720-448-3742.  Thank you for referrals you send me.  I offer many services such as: natal chart readings, yearly updates, couples compatibility or astrocartography (location) readings.  If you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member or dear one, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minutes, recorded session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer,  720-448-3742 healingevents@yahoo.com    http://www.vedicstarcharts.com

Vedic Astrology Transit Blog for October, 2018

September 26, 2018

VENUS is strongly featured in this month’s blog. It is high dignity, traveling through its own sign of Libra. In addition JUPITER is on the move! Read all about it.  Please remember that I’m available to give individual and couples readings, and I greatly appreciate your referrals. Thank you!

10/05/18 – Venus goes RETROGRADE until 11/16/18. Whenever a benefic planet goes into retrograde motion, it becomes stronger in its ability to do give its positive results.  Those with Libra Rising or Moon signs will continue to enjoy these benefits for some months to come. Once Venus  goes direct on 11/16/18, it will not exit Libra to move into Scorpio until 1/01/2019, due to the time it takes to retrace its footsteps forward and progress to the next sign. So enjoy feeling warm, affectionate, attractive, creative and very interested in art, music, beauty, and creature comforts for the rest of this year, all you Librans!

Taurus is the other sign ruled by Venus. The sign of Libra represents the 6th house for Taureans, which is not as comfortable in its influence. This house represents worries, stress, anxiety, delays, enemies, rival, competitors. The most productive way to channel the energy of this long transit through Libra is through being of service to others, which the 6th house can also signify.

10/06/18 – MERCURY enters Libra, joining its friend Venus there. These two planets together manifest a great energy of playfulness, fun, and creative communication. People will enjoy being around you, as you radiate these qualities, Librans!

Mercury rules the signs of Virgo and Gemini. This placement also brings positive influences for both of them. For Geminis, Mercury will be in their 5th house of children, success, education and learning ability. For Virgos, it is their 2nd house of wealth, family and communication.  Geminis and Virgos will see these important areas of life get energized in a positive way during this transit period.

10/10/18 MERCURY gets out of Combustion, where it was traveling too close to the Sun for comfort since 9/05/18. As Mercury signifies diplomacy, tactfulness, friendliness and communication, these areas may have seemed somewhat clipped and distorted during this period. As usual, the ones who would have felt the effects the most, are those with Gemini or Virgo Ascendant or Moon signs. Everyone will enjoy Mercury being free of combustion now.

10/11/18  JUPITER MOVES INTO SCORPIO. This great benefic planet only changes signs every 12.5 to 13 months, so this is the biggest planet news of the month.  Now it moves into a friend’s sign, and will bring positive changes for individuals with Scorpio Rising or Moon signs.  It actually will be a relief for Libras when it moves, as it rules their 3rd and 6th house and has been bringing certain qualities of stress and obstacles to them for a year now.  Jupiter represents good luck, good judgment, wisdom, and happiness in any case, so doesn’t do so much damage, even ruling those houses for Libras. But for Scorpios, it brings the energy of their 2nd house (wealth, communication, family connections) and 5th house (children, education, success) to those with Scorpio Rising or natal Moons. This will be far better than the transit of their 12th house of loss, expenses and isolation that Scorpios have gone through for a year now.

The signs ruled by Jupiter are Sagittarius and Pisces. Now Jupiter will be transiting the 12th house for Sagittarians. This will afford them the opportunity or desire for foreign travel or “bed pleasures,” but also some seclusion that may be desired, or by contrast, feel like isolation. The 12th house also pertains to losses and expenditures so the year ahead for those with this Rising or Moon sign will be a time to stick to a budget as much as possible.  For Pisces Rising and Moon signs, Scorpio represents their 9th house of good luck and good fortune, dharma, destiny, remedies, pilgrimage and Natural Law. This is a big improvement over the 8th house of Transformation and Vulnerability, which they’ve gone through for a year now. Pisceans can expect some wonderful improvements in the year ahead!

10/17/18 – The SUN enters LIBRA, joining Mercury and Venus there.  This brings a helpful influence for income and gain to the Librans, as the Sun rules their 11th house. For Leos, ruled by the Sun, it is their 3rd house of projects, vitality and shorter journeys. The only thing to consider is that Libra happens to be the sign of Debilitation for the Sun, and thus it will be weaker than usual for the next 30 days.

10/21/18 – VENUS goes combust the Sun, but this will only last until 10/31. During this ten day period, Librans and Taureans may feel a little more easily irritated than we ordinarily see with their usual graceful, harmonious and peace-loving, stable natures.

10/24/18 – FULL MOON IN ARIES, sign of New Beginnings.  The Cancer Rising and Moon folks, being ruled by the Moon, will enjoy this one, as Aries represents their 10th house of action, career, name and fame.  It would be a good time to ask for a raise or receive some career acknowledgement.

10/26/18 – MERCURY enters Scorpio, bringing clarity of communications, plus income and gain to our water sign friends with this Rising or Moon sign traveling through their Vedic charts.  For Virgos, this is their 3rd house, increasing the number of projects they’ll be involved in, and this is a good time for writing. So was the previous transits of Mercury through Libra. For Geminis, this new Scorpio transit represents their 6th house, so it will be a time to reflect on or perhaps analyze from a new perspective the hassles, delays and obstacles that they may now have to deal with.

All the best, from the Sunshine Corner, here in Boulder, CO.  Tel: 720-448-3742.  Thank you for referrals you send me.  I offer many services such as: natal chart readings, yearly updates, couples compatibility or astrocartography (location) readings.  If you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member or dear one, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minutes, recorded session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer,  healingevents@yahoo.com    http://www.vedicstarcharts.com

Planets for the New Year: January, 2017

January 8, 2017

New Year’s blessing to all! May 2017 bring you many gifts.

Once again, I can blame my tardiness on getting this report written to Mercury Retrograde, but that just ended, so now, back to work.

VERY EXCITING NEWS! Please visit my newly redesigned website, which looks awesome and much more up-to-date. http://www.vedicstarcharts.com Now is a great time to have a reading with me, to get an in-depth look at your year ahead. As you can see on my website, I can now accept PayPal payments for my services.

January 2nd – Mercury got out of combustion with the Sun, bringing relief to all those with Virgo or Gemini Rising or Moon signs, especially.

January 8th – MERCURY WENT DIRECT! Yes, that was just this morning, so communications in general should improve now. Situations that seemed to be “going backwards” for the Virgos and Geminis for the past three weeks, can move forward more smoothly, as well.  If you’ve been having trouble with communication equipment, Mercury getting out of retrograde should also be a big improvement.  Go ahead and sign those contracts and make the new agreements you have been considering.

January 13th – The SUN enters earth sign Capricorn this date, which is not its favorite sign to transit. For the Leos, the sign that the Sun rules, this represents your 6th house of enemies, rivals and competitors, stress, worry, and health problems. You can expect some delays and snags until February 12th.

January 20th – MARS enters Pisces.  For those with Aries Rising or Moon signs, this represents your 12th house, so you may experience some losses or expenses, may feel you need some time alone, or conversely, just feel isolated. Foreign travel would be a possibility, depending on your dashas (personal planetary cycles). For the other sign ruled by Mars, Scorpio, this represents your 5th house of success, learning, children, and romance, so it’s a better placement for you.

AND NOW THE BIG ONE!  Our slowest-moving planet, SATURN, will enter Sagittarius on January 26th.  This is a relief for those with Scorpio Moons especially, as you have been in the middle of your Sadhe Sati period. Sorry to spoil the fun, but I must report that your relief will be temporary: Saturn goes retrograde on April 5th, and backs all the way up into Scorpio again on June 20th. It goes direct motion on August 25th, but does not move back into Sagittarius until October 26. There it will remain for roughly 2.5 years.  Sagittarians, “call me,” to get the scoop. You will be working hard, have many responsibilities, and will need to stay focused in the next few years, including having a structured schedule, which your nature may rebel against. Trust me, it’s worth it. Also, you’ll need to get enough rest every night!  Meditation is a great help for those dealing with Saturn’s influence.

January 27th – Benefic VENUS enters Pisces, its sign of Exaltation. The signs ruled by this planet are Taurus and Libra. The Taureans will fare very well, as this is a 10th house transit, emphasizing your popularity, career, name and fame, etc. Libras have to be careful, as this is your 6th house of worry and stress. Take care of yourself and watch out for jealousy that could be directed at you now. Pisces Rising or Moon folks will feel more creative, warm and loving, yet Venus does also rule your 8th house of vulnerability and transformation.  Pisceans really have to learn to have healthy boundaries or others will take advantage of your “Emotional Healer” nature and you could end up feeling drained.

For those who like to plan far into the future, I will mention a very powerful TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE ON August 21st, and yes, it will be visible in the US. The path of complete darkness caused when Rahu tries to “swallow the Sun” is from the Pacific NW, diagonally through the Midwest, and going through South Carolina, from what I’ve read. Eclipses are very inauspicious, should not be viewed, especially by anyone who is pregnant, and their biggest effects happen along the areas in which they are visible.  This eclipse occurs in LEO, which sign the Sun owns, thus it will have the greatest effect on those born with Leo Ascendants or Moon signs.

Blessings of the planets to you, from the Sunshine Corner in from Sedona, AZ.  Tel. 928-284-4060.  Thank you for any referrals you may send me.  I offer many services such as: natal chart readings, yearly updates, couples compatibility or astrocartography (location) readings.  If you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member or dear one, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minute, taped session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. vedicstarcharts.com

October Planets: MERCURY Returns to Virgo

October 2, 2016

It’s nice to have some improved planetary news to share this month.

As we know, Mercury got out of retrograde on September 21st. However it has taken all this time to regain the ground it had to back track over during the retrograde period. So, finally:

October 3rd – Mercury re-enters Virgo, where it is very happy as this is its own sign, even gaining Exalted status at certain degrees of this Earth sign. Since Mercury governs communications, commerce and trade, and communications equipment, this will be a valuable improvement for all of the above. In addition, those ruled by Mercury can take heart as they will be feeling much better now: Virgos and Geminis.

October 7th – Mercury will be traveling too close to the Sun once more, thus some of its fine qualities such as logic, tactfulness and diplomacy will feel “combust the Sun.” This period lasts until November 21st.

October 11th -JUPITER gets out of combustion with the Sun. That is some more good news!  The combustion period for this great benefic began on September 11th and caused some waves in our daily lives, especially when it was at the exact degree of the Sun around September 25th. There were several rough days there with Jupiter’s significations made toast by this proximity to the Sun, including happiness, good judgment, intuition, good fortune. Those ruled by Jupiter should take delight in this change now: Sagittarius and Pisces Rising and Moon signs.

October 13th – VENUS enters Scorpio.  It was happy in the previous sign Libra (which it owns), but this will also be a good placement for those ruled by this benefic: Libra and Taurus Rising and Moon signs.  Scorpios benefit too, and will feel more affectionate and romantic now. They just will have to watch their spending.

October 16 – the SUN enters Libra. In this air sign it is debilitated, or in its weakest sign, thus Leos may feel less energy for a thirty day period now (they are ruled by the Sun).  It does not bring harm to Librans, as the Sun rules their house of gain and income, thus their cash flow should be good, but it’s a wise idea for them to watch their tempers now, which is normally not an issue. The Sun can make them feel “overheated.”

October 21 – MERCURY in Libra.  Now Mercury joins the Sun in Libra and that is a mixed blessing for the Librans (some gain/some loss), due to the houses it rules for them.  It is a nice position for the Virgos (their 2nd house of wealth, family and communication) and the Geminis (their 5th house of success, education, and children). 

October 31st – MARS enters Capricorn, its sign of exaltation on this Halloween day.  What kind of tricks or treats will it bring there?  It’s nice for those with Capricorn Rising or Moon signs as long as they don’t let their ambition and drive now overpower them with any impatience or quarrelsomeness.  Mars can give rise to accidents, and it will be plenty strong at this time, so depending on which house it rules in your own birth chart, my suggestion is to watch for speeding now and don’t run over any trick-or-treaters! To learn more about how the planet transits are affecting your own life, give me a call to set up a reading.

All the best, from the Sunshine Corner in from Sedona, AZ.  Tel. No. 928-284-4060.  Thank you for any referrals you may send me.  I offer many services such as: natal chart readings, yearly updates, couples compatibility or astrocartography (location) readings.  If you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member or dear one, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minute, taped session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. vedicstarcharts.com

JUNE Planets: Venus Combust the Sun; Jupiter/Rahu Conjunction Gets More Intense

June 7, 2016

Greetings from the Sunshine Corner! Where I must say, we have been setting high temperature records for days, here in Sedona, so we are looking for things to cool off.

This includes a desire for the planetary intensity to cool off! Some astrologers are speaking of consequences to world leaders, politics, and the old system of doing things, indicating a time this month when much truth will get uncovered and revealed. Well, I’ve always like that statement, from the Bible, “All that was hidden, shall be revealed.”

JUNE 2nd – Mercury moves into fixed Earth sign Taurus, and stays there until June 26th.  This helps make the Taureans more playful and communicative.  Virgo Rising and Moon types finally get an up-welling of good luck and better fortune.  The ruler of your chart, Mercury, has been traversing your house of vulnerability and just too many changes going on, for some time. You can now feel more grounded and more yourself.  For the other sign ruled by Mercury, Gemini, well it’s a bit different story. Taurus represents a twelfth house transit for you, making the Gemini Rising and Moon sign natives feel more inward or isolated. You will need to watch your spending at this time too, and not let expenses go too high.

JUNE 12th – VENUS goes into Gemini. This is a friend’s sign for benefic Venus.  Geminis may feel more playful and affectionate from this influence. It represents a nice situation for Taurus Ascendant and Moon people, with the ruler of your chart now in the second house of wealth.  Libra is the other sign ruled by Venus.  It’s not so good for the Librans here, as that is your 8th house of transformation and vulnerability, so you may not be feeling that circumstances are as settled as you would like.

JUNE 14th – HOT on the heels of Venus, the Sun now moves into air sign Gemini.  You can guess, can’t you?  Venus is still traveling too close to the Sun. That fiery orb has been combusting the qualities of Venus for some time now, and it won’t let up for a while. This affects the Librans and Taureans a lot.  It’s almost like there’s no way to get really “comfortable in your own skin,” no matter what you try! Once again, we can “blame it on the planets.”  Venus has been combust the Sun since April 30.  It does not get out of this condition until July 13th. 

JUNE 17th – Here’s an interesting twist. As you know, if you follow my blogs, Mars has been retrograde for quite some time. Now it “moonwalks” back into the previous sign of Libra.  Thus normally peace-loving air sign Libra folks may feel either a lot more motivated, ambitious, with greater energy, or…may tend to get hot under the collar and easily irritated, which could surprise even them.  The good news, from my perspective, is that Mars and Saturn can have a break from being too close together in Mars’ sign of Scorpio! Whew, this has been the source of so much friction, reflected in world affairs, and our own individual, personal affairs for far too long.  Mars will get out of retrograde motion and go Direct on  June 29th. It then moves back into Scorpio July 12th to keep retrograde Saturn company there. This is nearly like an old West episode of “this town is too small for the both of us, Pardner.” They are like two enemies who would like to “knock each other’s block off” so once again the world and those of us who live here, shall have to endure more of this type of tension and pressure.  MARS does not move onto the next sign until SEPTEMBER 17th. 

JUNE 20 – FULL MOON: About 4:00 a.m. AZ time (same as Pacific time, this time of year), the Moon will be at its point of fullness in Sagittarius, opposite the Sun in Gemini.  The lunar mansion or constellation of MOOLA is the one which the Moon will be traveling through at that point.  The symbol of Moola is a bunch of roots, tied together. Thus it represents the deeply buried or hidden facets of life. Perhaps this full moon here is the trigger to bring out something hidden that we need to know, on the US political scene.  Some say that Moola is ruled by Kali, the goddess of destruction.  Others believe it is ruled by Ketu, the malefic south node of the moon, as well as the goddess of poverty. The mind seeks to know the truth, and this planetary setup is going to fuel that quest even more at this time.

JUNE 21st – Benefic Jupiter and malefic Rahu (north node of the Moon) will be in exact conjuction. This influence will last for several days as they continue to travel within one degree of each other.  This occurs in fire sign Leo. For those with Leo Rising and Moon signs, this could be a rather unsettling time. There will be “nowhere to run; nowhere to hide” as this energy requires that you face whatever fears or situations you have been trying to avoid, and look them squarely in the face, in order to learn from, grow beyond and transcend them.  Jupiter represents wisdom and good judgment, among other things. Rahu tries to bring in a cloud of confusion to cause chaos.   I see this reflected in the nightly TV news (this conjunction has been going on for some time, just not at the same exact degree).  There are many untruths and shifting stories being spoken by various politicians. It becomes nearly impossible to discern where some of them stand and what real intentions they may have, if they (he) ever get into power.  These planets require us all to do our best to listen to inner guidance rather than the “noise of the world.” It is not an easy job, until Jupiter pulls away, some distance from Rahu.

JUNE 24th – Once again, Mercury goes combust the Sun, which certainly has an affect on conversation and communication. We’ll all have to strive for tactfulness and diplomacy now.

JUNE 26th – Mercury enters its own sign of Gemini, where it is very happy and feels at home.  It joins Venus and the Sun in this dual air sign, bringing the party to those with Gemini Rising or Moon signs.  The Sun brings you power; Venus and Mercury bring you playfulness and curiosity – even more of that than normal!  It is also a good placement for Virgos, the other sign ruled by Mercury, bringing you more activity in career and professional life, name and fame, action and personal power.

JUNE 29th – MARS GOES DIRECT MOTION!  We hope this brings both Scorpios and Aries, the two signs ruled by Mars, a sense of progress now.  For the Aries Ascendants and Moon sign people, this has been an uncomfortable transit through your 8th house of vulnerability, going all the way back to  February 20, 2016.  As mentioned earlier, we won’t see Mars moving on into Sagittarius until September 17th. Things should get much better for you after that. They get better for us all then, too, once Mars is finally no longer traveling too close to its enemy Saturn!

Planets of MAY: Jupiter Out of Retrograde on May 9th

May 7, 2016

How are the planets treating you this month? To me, it’s been like a case of “planetary bumper cars” – in other words, rather jarring. I never liked bumper cars, as a child.  One of my spiritual teachers said “Your chart is your curse,” and by that he meant, that all the karma we souls have taken on in this particular incarnation can be seen in our charts, including our strengths and talents. (Currently Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter are still all in retrograde motion; Venus and Mercury are combust the Sun).

May 9th – JUPITER GOES DIRECT MOTION. This is the first bit of good news to share, since we’ve had the occurrence of FOUR planets in retrograde motion and TWO in combustion with the Sun….all of which produce rather challenging conditions.  Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces, and has been traveling through the fire sign Leo since July 13, 2015.  Since Jupiter is a great benefic, that’s fairly nice for the Leos, except for Jupiter’s 8th house rulership in their charts, bringing a certain amount of vulnerability and transformation to their lives during this transit.  Since malefic Rahu (north node of the Moon) joined it there on January 8, 2016, that adds to those qualities.  Jupiter can also add a certain degree of arrogance to those with Leo Rising or Moon charts, which is a quality they don’t really need more of, in any case! Now this forward movement of Jupiter, can bring more progress for the three signs in question, which will be a nice relief.

May 17th – Mercury gets out of Combustion. So that is the next piece of good news!  Not only do those signs that are ruled by Mercury: Virgo and Gemini, benefit and feel relief now, but any type of communication with our fellow human beings should go smoother now, whether it is verbal interaction, emails, letters, bank statements, or other important documents in which there are items we could have misinterpreted before.  Since the challenging condition of SIX planets has been so intense since late in April, this will be a welcomed change.

May 19th – VENUS moves into Taurus!  Ah, how this great benefic loves to be in her own sign.  Those with Taurus Ascendants or Moon signs will suddenly feel like they are swimming in familiar waters, and Venus adds a touch of luxury or at least creature comforts here, as well as renewed interest in art, music, romance, etc. (and possibly some self-indulgence!)  Remember that Venus is also combust (traveling too close to) the Sun now.  This makes a planet grouchy, angry, more reactive than normal, so you may find your moods mirroring these qualities, at times.  This condition lasts from  April 30 until July 13.

May 22th – MERCURY GOES DIRECT MOTION. Ah, yes, finally it is out of Retrograde! A good time will be had by all Virgos and Geminis, or at least a better tim ethan you’ve had all month, up till now.  Mercury is still in fire sign Aries at this time, which is the beneficial 11th house (gain, income) placement for the Geminis. It is not as good for the Virgos, in that the ruler of their chart is still in their 8th house of battles and disunion, transformation and vulnerability – this may produce feelings of being “in the gap,” watching and waiting for conditions to form and gel so that they can manifest for you, once Mercury moves onto the next sign and a better house (9th) for you, on June 7th.
