The Illumination of Mars and Saturn

Mars got a chill down when he entered Aquarius yesterday. And, today Mars further loses some of his fire as he meets up with Saturn. 

Keywords will help you understand Mars conjunct Saturn in Aquarius.

Here are some good ones:
Will power (Mars) unites with Discipline (Saturn)
Enthusiasm (Mars) joins Determination (Saturn)
Preparation (Saturn) finds Expression (Mars)

This planetary conjunction of Mars and Saturn can actually be viewed from the earth and without a telescope! Mars is brighter, but Saturn you can also see in the early morning sky. Jupiter is there, too. (The only thing hard about seeing this trio is getting up early in the morning) . . .

In the language of astrology, Mars and Saturn are pragmatic, but they serve as Light Bearers today to illuminate our best way forward.

To understand how the planetary alignments play out in real life it’s insightful to examine the character of people who were born with these configurations in their natal charts.

Here are two good examples: Tennis pro Venus Williams was born with Mars conjunct Saturn, and also singer, relentless entrepreneur and human dynamo, Dolly Parton.

These two women are great models of discipline and determination fueled by enthusiasm and will power.

Genghis Khan, the legendary Mongolian warrior was also born with Mars conjunct Saturn.

The planets are teachers, and, what they are showing you now is that this what is possible; your Highest Order. The stars are calling your name, spiritual warrior, to unite on the goal of global healing.

There is something new in the energy field with Mars and Saturn now both in Aquarius.

Saturn is stronger in Aquarius than Mars is, so Saturn has the upper hand on rough and tumble Mars. Saturn is teaching Mars some manners.

People are remembering how to be kind and respectful, yet effective.

And, ideally, as ‘we the people' (Aquarius) are practicing confinement (Saturn) and with grace, this global plague will lose virulence (Mars).

On Saturday, April 4th Jupiter is conjunct Pluto. It’s interesting to note that two other pandemic viruses occurred when Jupiter and Pluto were conjunct – the Spanish Flu (1919 JU/Pl in Cancer) and the Hong Kong flu (1968 JU/Pl in Virgo).

The stars are such good teachers, and the dates of Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions for 2020 are: April 4, June 30, and November 12.

However, not every conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto has brought an epidemic, in fact, these two planets are also known as ‘the millionaire maker' so – although there is a huge undercurrent of stress and confusion, now is also a time for great gains.

Richness is not only about money, it's about having a fulfilled and satisfied life.

You must consciously choose to embrace Light over darkness.

So, it’s time to be a good soldier and practice the discipline of Saturn– stay inside and do your work. Truly, this is an unparalleled time for growth and personal creativity as long as you keep the wolves of fear at bay.

Astrology predicted that something huge was coming, and indeed, across the globe, our lives have been transformed. It’s uncomfortable most, tragic for some, but certainly a time of irrevocable change for all.

I believe in positive evolution united with the goodness of human nature and that this will open the heart of humankind. Your creativity and the power of love are the missing and magical ingredients that will heal ourselves and the earth.

This I know to be true.

March Time and Transformation

Astrologically speaking, this month is about time and transformation. 

It's pretty much a reversal of the old saying: ‘March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb’. The planetary energies of March of 2020 come in like a lamb, and go out like a LION!

The early days of March are softer and subtle – a reference to the lamb. Remember that Mercury is retrograde until March 9th. Although inconvenient, Mercury retrograde is a time for reflection, review, and (yes) you can even get in some relaxation as the usual forward motion of everyday life is temporarily re-directed.

Plus, Venus enters Taurus on the 4th, where she stays until early April. Venus is the planetary ruler of the sign Taurus, so think of it like the Queen being home in her favorite castle. Taurus is the sign where Venus can let her hair down and get comfortable.

Even Venus conjunct Uranus on March 8th can be a special day of entertainment. When these two planets join forces anything can happen, and it’s often a lively reflection of the illumination that only Uranus can add to your everyday life.

Also, the Sun conjunct Neptune on March 8th lends a rainbow-like atmosphere to these early days of the month. Even Friday the 13th is a mellow day with the Scorpio moon forming only favorable aspects, sextiles and trines, to Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, Sun, and Pluto!

However, the quandaries of the world have never really left; they will be illuminated as Mars lights the flame of transformation. Planetary heavyweights, Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto will be ignited as Mars rapidly approaches and joins, or conjuncts them at 22 – 24 degrees of Capricorn.

After the last quarter moon on March 16th – things start to heat up. Mars is the planetary cosmic activator. He will stir things up in the world, and as a personal planet, he knows how to get under your skin.

The question becomes: do you want Mars to give you an irritating rash, or a positive kick in the pants? You decide.

In astrology, Mars reflects your energy, your drive, and your willingness to go for what you want.
The last two weeks of March are stunning with a once in a lifetime series of activations.

Mars conjuncts Jupiter on March, 20th, Pluto on the 23rd, and Saturn on March 31st.

All planetary situations have both personal and Universal impact and this transit of Mars is no exception. Frankly, on the world stage, things can get wild as Mars lights up the explosive qualities of Jupiter, the stern side of Saturn, and the nefarious potential of Pluto.

Winning at this time means not getting distracted from your personal goals. The positive side of this Mars alignment gives you: spiritual protection (Jupiter), discipline and concentration (Saturn), and courage combined with a willingness to overcome obstacles (Pluto).

I know that you’ll use this information to stay on the sunny side of life. Stay alert and on track in this amazing time and you’ll embrace a fabulously positive future.

Leo Full Moon – I AM that I AM

Tonight’s full moon illuminates the sign of Leo. This moon being somewhat closer to the earth than usual, it is big, full, and (if the weather is good where you live) bright.

Leo Full Moon – February 9 at 20 degrees Leo 

Ancient wisdom teaches that Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio, the four fixed zodiac signs are entry points for Source, the way that Divine energy to come to the earth.

So, now, the Sun in impersonal Aquarius, and the moon in very personal Leo we are uniquely connected to Source.

One of the most intriguing qualities of the sign Leo is personal creativity. Not only does Leo highlight creativity, it come with ego, which is how you show the world what YOU have to give. But the word ego has a negative connotation of extreme pride.

Ego is one of the great challenges of the Leo/Aquarius axis. Really, ego is an extension of the profound statement: ‘I AM’.

And, what is more powerful than an awareness of your being? Psychology says that ‘ego is just ego’; it’s a part of the human psyche that is essential to your survival.

But there is something even more powerful.

Ego and the Aquarius/Leo axis reflects one of the greatest challenges to humankind – our fall from grace as illustrated in the story of Adam and Eve. This wisdom story teaches that ego is wrapped around a profound challenge which is a disconnection from our creator.

The human ego is not really your true self! Ego relies on labels, definitions, and measurements of who has more. True power is the experience of: I AM THAT I AM. This is what will set you free!

This full moon invites you to express your gifts and talents.  Ultimately, the Leo full moon opens a gate for you to come home to your true self – your spiritual mansion.

The secret  is that your mansion, your spiritual home, is readily available. You only need to step inside; it’s supportive, nurturing and infinitely interesting because it’s the field of all possibilities.

Your connection to the power of creation is available in every moment and you can access it through your stillness, your focus, your breath, and your command.

With love and acknowledgement of who you really are,

Aquarius New Moon Lights up Your Genius

Although it’s late into the month, January 24th is really the first New Moon of 2020, and indeed, this one sets a template for the year ahead. This New Moon occurs on Friday, January 24th at 4:42 pm Eastern US time.

Are you ready to Light up your Genius? This Aquarius New Moon wants to help you embark on a new journey, and the planets say it’s time to reassess your goals and revise your strategies, and let your Light SHINE.

This New Moon has lots of spice. First flavor is Sun/Moon square Uranus. If you want to make a change, just get Uranus involved. In this case, the Universe is on board to help you! 

Also, Venus sitting nicely conjunct Neptune emphasizes your artistic side. These two working together set a tone for beauty and magic. The planets now invite you to stake your claim in the fertile ground of your dreams.

However, in this New Moon chart Venus and Neptune form a challenging square to Mars.

The spiritual lesson of Mars square Neptune is to overcome discouragement, to learn to pick yourself up and move beyond your past – in short – to practice forgiveness of self and others.

So, this lunation presents some practical and spiritual challenges.

Moon square Uranus can bring on unpredictable emotional storms, so don’t waste this amazing transformational energy in petty arguments or blow ups. Rather, seek to access the creative matrix of Universal energy to manifest the calling of your Highest Self.

Also known as ‘the Water Bearer’, Aquarius is an air sign. The Water that Aquarius pours out is the vital spiritual essence that renews and nourishes all things.

Uranus is a catalyst which propels two seemingly unrelated things to interact and create something completely new. This may apply to your ideas, your plans, maybe your living situation – what ever needs the boost of a catalyst.

Here are some key phrases for the Aquarius New Moon:
Radical New Beginnings * * * Spontaneous Shift * * * A New Paradigm
Super Creativity * * * Nervous Tension * * * Desire for Freedom

As always, you want to know where this powerful New Moon fits in your personal chart, and how it will better your life.
