Saturn trine Neptune: Drifting Toward Dream Manifestation

Early this week, the Sun forms a sextile to Saturn followed by a sextile to Neptune. This essentially introduces the long-term trine aspect between Saturn and Neptune as the Sun 'lights up' the midpoint between these outer planets. This trine between Saturn and Neptune gets close enough to be within a 1' orb later this week and these planets will continue to be in and out of this aspect with each other through the summer of 2013.

This cycle actually initiated between mid-February and late November 1989 when these planets formed a conjunction in Capricorn. This initiated a new cycle related to merging dreams (Neptune) with reality (Saturn) and merging truth (Neptune) with structure (Saturn). Other key turning points for this cycle were from late March through mid-April 1999 when Saturn squared Neptune and again from late August 2006 through early July 2007 when Saturn opposed Neptune.

If you can think of the themes in your own life around these dates related to the perceived disparity between dreams/truth and reality/structure then you may be able to have a clue as to what the next 18 months will gradually and effortlessly bring your way. Hopefully you took advantage of these key time periods because this trine acts like a snowball coming down the mountain! Whatever you have 'built' will be implementing itself for better or for worse. It might be easiest to just look back to late 2006 through early 2007 to see how life was unfolding as this was a time when we perceived that our dreams were distant from what was realistic. If you 'gave up' on yourself then, expect it to be VERY tempting and almost impossible to stop that momentum now. However, if you channeled your perceived doubt into creative energy and worked to bridge the gap between your dreams and your perceived reality at that time, then expect your dreams to begin almost to 'effortlessly' manifest themselves over the next 18 months.

Don't believe me? Give it a conscious try ;)...


Below is an example from my own life regarding these key dates as well as some more collective-level (US policy and Northern CA disaster preparedness) experiences of these energies at work:

Saturn conjunct Neptune: Mid-February through late November 1989 - Birth of the new cycle

I was a 10 yr old who had just finished up a special extra-curricular course which covered the science of Meteorology (i.e. weather & forecasting) from where I would go on to major in Meteorology (i.e. dreams into reality) a decade later. I also had my 6th and final ear surgery which was supposed to 'fix' (Saturn) my perforated eardrums for good. However, the surgery was not a success for unknown reasons (Neptune) and a perforated ear drum in my left ear remained.

Collectively, this is when the Montreal Protocol occurred which rose the awareness of 'climate change' in terms of human-related activities. Also, more locally, this is when the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake occurred in the San Francisco Bay Area. The 'truth' was out regarding current 'structures' that needed adjustments.

Saturn square Neptune: Late March through mid-April 1999 - First

tensions & adjustments of the cycle

I was a sophomore Meteorology major who was preparing to spend a good chunk of my summer at basic training with the Air Force ROTC program where I was to become an Air Force Meteorologist. However, in April of that year, I received a phone call after a routine physical for the ROTC program through which I was informed that I was disqualified for the program due to my still unresolved perforated eardrum!

At this time, many scientific studies were being conducted related to human influences on climate change which made it a political hot topic for the first time during the 2000 election with Al Gore running for president. In Northern CA, the Bay Bridge retrofits were also a hot topic with lots of contention regarding costs and tax payer money etc.

Saturn opposite Neptune: Late August 2006 through early July 2007 - Culmination and unfolding

After my opportunity with the Air Force fell through I started to realize that I had only majored in Meteorology because my mom mentioned to me in passing as a teen that I 'really liked that course' I took when I was 10! I had to then start from scratch in terms of my plans for the future in the late 1990's which led me down many paths including where I ended up by late 2006 into 2007. I found myself living 3,000 miles away from home in Sacramento, CA pushing my ambitious goals that I never would have had if I had stayed with the Air Force. I also got laid off for the first time during this time period and I fully experienced the sense of an 'unpredictable future' which was, in retrospect, the point of the life lesson of being released by the predictable future promised through the Air Force. This was perhaps a time of disillusionment for me but also a time where, by the summer of 2007, I felt like an approach to life without too much predictability (Saturn) was in favor of my dreams (Neptune) rather than a deterrent from them.

At this time, Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" came out which brought the collective awareness of the climate change issue (whether you personally trust the information or not) to the public. Also, most of the retrofits of bridges in the San Francisco Bay were either being finished or finalized in terms of plans.

Saturn trine Neptune: Late December 2011 through late July 2013 - Momentum from the unfolding

So what does the next 18 months bring? For me, I assume that I will be further challenged to live 'unpredictably'. Since I feel that I came through the recent opposition (2006-2007) with a positive outlook and a sense of possibility for the future, this time just may reflect that momentum. I'll keep my fingers crossed and just keep on steering toward structuring my dreams regardless of the currents I have created ;).

In terms of climate change, I am guessing that by mid-2013 there will be solid legislation related to human-related emissions OR that the 'truth' about the human influence comes out in one form or another and coincides with the unveiling of FREE energy which negates the need for legislation in the first place. For the Bay Area, I think there will be a MAJOR earthquake between now and the summer of 2013 and the level of damage will reflect the degree of the efforts for the retrofits that were put into place. My guess is that the earthquake

will be larger in magnitude than the 1989 Loma Prieta quake but that the damage and death toll will be far less because of the retrofits. Lets hope so :).

Regardless of whether you 'gave up' on your dreams or you pushed forward to 'make them real' back in late 2006 through early 2007, you now have a chance to 'ride the wave' of your creations over the next 18 months. Even if the momentum is not in your favor due to your previous choices, that doesn't mean you cannot steer in the direction you want to go. It just makes it a little more difficult to steer out of the current. If you created a favorable current relative to your present intentions, you will experience the more 'effortless' flow of the manifestation of your dreams over this period. Otherwise, it will just take more work but the result can still be the same...

I'd love to hear YOUR personal stories regarding these themes over the next 18 months!!

Total Lunar Eclipse – 12/10/2011


Its eclipse season again! This most recent round started off with a new moon solar eclipse that peaked at approximately 1:12am EST on Friday, November 25...'Black Friday' in the US. Next on the list is the TOTAL full moon lunar eclipse (see chart above) that peaks at approximately 09:35am EST on Saturday, December 10.

Eclipses usually occur two weeks apart from each other twice per year. Each series typically includes a lunar eclipse followed by a solar eclipse or vice versa. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is partially blocking the moon from the sun during a full moon. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the sun from the Earth during a new moon. Full moons and new moons represent astrologically potent time periods anyway, but the eclipses just add some amplification and usually a little dose of the unexpected!

Astrologically speaking, new moons are generally a time of sowing seeds while full moons are a time of reaping what we sow. Where a new moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of new beginnings and laying new foundations in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted. Where a full moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of sudden awareness, revelation, culmination and completion in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted. Eclipses just add some spice and surprise to these time periods.

Ancient astrologers saw eclipse seasons as especially potent time periods with regards to wars and the fate of nations. I personally prefer to look at eclipses relative to the lives and relationships of individuals. In this regard, eclipse seasons are often potent times for unexpected change in terms of surprise new beginnings and to final culminations of things which have been building for some time.

This current total lunar eclipse will peak at approximately 18° Gemini and it will be in conjunction with the south node of the moon. This represents a time of culmination, release, and filtering of energy. When we are open and flexible in the face of change, this can be a rewarding time where we experience the culmination of past efforts or the finishing of unfinished business. If we have been creating against our best interests or if we have been keeping things under the surface, this may mark a stressful time of culmination with regards to the release of our secrets or the results of our less than stellar creations. The experiences of this nature would be felt within the domain of the astrological house that encompasses the location of this eclipse at 18° Gemini. You would need to consult your own natal chart to find out where this position falls for you.

For example, this point falls in my natal 9th house (near the Midheaven) which is the house covering travel, education, news from 'afar', the internet, publishing, etc. For me (and everyone else who has 18° Gemini in their 9th house) this could mark a culmination and release related to travel, publishing or hearing surprising news from afar. This eclipse includes a challenging aspect to Mars in my 12th house of secrets, hidden enemies, spirituality, & behind the scenes activities as well as a challenging aspect to Venus in my 4th house of home, security, emotions, and family. This eclipse is in supportive aspects to Neptune in my 6th house of health, work, service, & daily routine and to Saturn in my 2nd house of self-worth, finances, tangibility, & sensuality. I better be diligent with whom I conduct business but it appears that I may get the opportunity to prove that my 'outside-the-box' services can gain traction and earn tangible results and personal security for me (though I may be required to relocate to make it happen!). If I am not dealing with perceived enemies trying to block my path, then I will certainly be dealing with the most hidden enemy of all...unconscious self-sabotage!

In general, this eclipse's aspects point to an opportunity to release old beliefs over the next several months to make room for new growth opportunities coming in early summer 2012 (see below). This release process will require that we are willing to adjust our values (ideas about abundance/scarcity and whats important in our relationships) and willing to do the the diligent and detailed work that is required to to shift the momentum of our lives into more favorable currents. As long as justice, equality, and acceptance are part of the picture, our long-term security will be solid.

Collectively, I feel that truths are about to be revealed and that the general public will have to make some quick value adjustments (i.e. possibly temporarily living without money) while doing the 'hard-work' of beginning the process of organizing our new reality into a well-oiled machine for the good of all. Some of these secrets may include the realization that all of those electronic numbers in the stock market (and your 401K) aren't 'money' at all. Secrets related to the bridge between science and spirituality will likely be part of the picture as well. With the truth out, there would be no turning back and we would be required to move forward and create our society around these truths rather than according to an out-dated system that only served its creators.

The combination of the house location of the eclipse, its aspects to other current planets, and its aspects to the personal natal planets yields a very unique interpretation for each individual. For the best results in this case, find out where this lunar eclipse and the other planets involved fall in your natal chart. Then find any planets or personal points in your natal chart that are also aspected by these configurations.

Location of Current Total Lunar Eclipse Configurations

Lunar Eclipse - Moon @ 18° Gemini, Sun @ 18° Sagittarius

Mars - 13° Virgo

Neptune - 28° Aquarius

Saturn - 27° Libra

Venus - 17° Capricorn

The effects of this eclipse can be felt within a few days on either side of December 10 and may be felt through early June 2012! This is mainly because Mars will 'trigger' this eclipse by way of a square aspect starting the weekend of Christmas and ending in early June within a few days of the Venus/Sun occultation!

The Venus/Sun Occultation is a rare event with HUGE significance and will occur within orb of the degree of this eclipse in Gemini to boot! This rare event deserves its own write-up but, in any case, it appears that what we RELEASE related to this eclipse over the next several months will allow us the room to OPEN ourselves to the growth opportunities offered to us in early June 2012 with the Venus/Sun Occultation. I'll just say that it appears that the sacred feminine is making a comeback for ALL of us! Good times!

'Black Friday' Solar Eclipse - 11/25/2011


Its eclipse season again! This most recent round starts off with a new moon solar eclipse that peaks at approximately 1:12am EST on Friday, November 25...'Black Friday' in the US.

Eclipses usually occur two weeks apart from each other twice per year. Each series typically includes a lunar eclipse followed by a solar eclipse or vice versa. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is partially blocking the moon from the sun during a full moon. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the sun from the Earth during a new moon.

Full moons and new moons represent astrologically potent time periods anyway, but the eclipses just add some amplification and usually a little dose of the unexpected!

Astrologically speaking, new moons are generally a time of sowing seeds while full moons are a time of reaping what we sow. Where a new moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of new beginnings and laying new foundations in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted. Where a full moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of sudden awareness, revelation, culmination and completion in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted. Eclipses just add some spice and surprise to these time periods.

Ancient astrologers saw eclipse seasons as especially potent time periods with regards to wars and the fate of nations. I personally prefer to look at eclipses relative to the lives and relationships of individuals. In this regard, eclipse seasons are often potent times for unexpected change in terms of surprise new beginnings and to final culminations of things which have been building for some time.

This particular solar eclipse occurs at 3° Sagittarius and will be forming difficult square aspects to Mars at 7° Virgo and to Neptune at 28° Aquarius. It will also form a smoother flowing trine to Uranus at 1° Aries as well as an adjustment-seeking quincunx to Jupiter at 2° Taurus. Its 'Black Friday' in the US and shoppers will be out in masses. But the unusually early start to this year's event has some people protesting. Is there really any question WHY the 'occupy' movement is occurring? The only real question that remains is what to do about a situation where high powered executives are not held accountable. Forcing their workers to work strange hours for higher profits while they pass out on a couch at home somewhere, is just another example of the unaccountability problem.

With this eclipse occurring in Sagittarius (along with the start of Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius), I see some sort of 'wake-up call' incident occurring that leads to a need to reassess the value of rushing out to beat out other shoppers in a game that only serves an elite few. It may be that it takes an unfortunate accident to occur that reminds us that this kind of approach just isn't 'worth' it. Hopefully not though...

Depending on where this lands in your own personal natal chart, this eclipse is likely to lead to the start of some type of new initiative that requires independent action without any clear sense of which way is the 'right' way. Our values are shifting and we just don't need the collective approval that we always thought we needed to move forward. We are prepared to do the little details and grunt work to head in the direction of our visions, even without a compass. Such brave souls we are!

The experiences of this nature would be felt within the domain of the astrological house that encompasses the location of this eclipse at 3° Sagittarius. You would need to consult your own natal chart to find out where this position falls for you. For example, this point falls in my natal 3rd house which is the house covering contracts, discussions, information, and general life 'busyness'. For me (and everyone else who has 3° Sagittarius in their 3rd house) this could mark a new beginning related to my daily activities and contract discussions. I'll be hitting the ground running (Mars in Virgo) with a new venture (Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius/3rd house) and meeting with clients in a whole new way (Uranus in Aries/7th house) relative to my previous experience all while remaining unclear exactly what my cause is (Neptune in Aquarius/6th house) and whether it will actually support me financially (Jupiter in Taurus/8th house). Sounds about right ;)!

The combination of the house location of the eclipse, its aspects to other current planets, and its aspects to the personal natal planets yields a very unique interpretation for each individual. For the best results in this case, find out where this solar eclipse and the other planets involved fall in your natal chart. Then find any planets or personal points in your natal chart that are also aspected by these configurations.

Location of Current Solar Eclipse Configurations

Solar Eclipse – Sun/Moon @ 3° Sagittarius

Mars – 7° Virgo

Neptune – 28° Aquarius

Uranus – 1° Aries

Jupiter - 2° Taurus

The effects of this eclipse may ripple out as long as several months with initial conditions starting at or near the eclipse date (November 25, 2011). Mars recently squared the location of this eclipse from Virgo last week (~Nov 15, 2011) and won't form a conjunction with this location in early Sagittarius until ~Oct 10, 2012. You may have already felt some of the effects of this eclipse starting last week and the full force of what this eclipse is unleashing may not be fully apparent until October 2012!

General Advice:

Expanding beyond our comfort zones takes a 'leap of faith' at the very least. Fortunately, we are ready for the hard work and we are more aware of our independent needs and can honor this shift in values while taking chances with our 'truth'. Its one thing to know your truth, but its another thing to take action to honor it. Let the window that opens with this eclipse allow in the courage you need to act as though you actually value your truth for once!

Good luck!

Occupy YOU: The 'New Agreement'





So, Wall Street and many other financial centers around the world are being occupied by protesters. But what is the underlying motivation for the protests and what is the ultimate goal from this whole protesting process? Do we have any solutions?

If you are like me, then you are finished with the 'old agreement'. This the agreement where we (the '99%') hand over our authority to employers, bankers, and whomever else we deem 'worthy' in exchange for our security, safety, & our 'right' to survive and live. To me, this is finished.

Recognizing that the old agreement of individual devaluation just isn't working and that we need a 'NEW agreement' that reflects the value of our rare and unique input that we BRING to society is what I see as the heart of this movement. The process of losing our supposed sources of value (i.e. jobs, homes etc.) has revealed to us a new perception of self-worth and the collective realization of this new awareness IS what the Occupy Wall Street movement is all about!

The 'Titanic' IS sinking, despite its apparent 'un-sinkability' according to the authorities to whom we have handed our power. Just as WE have chosen to be a part of the old agreement, we have a choice in how we react to the collapse. We can panic and point fingers or we can play our 'music' and trust that we can swim until we figure everything out.

Hold on for the ride, things WILL get better! But in a whole new way that actually WORKS!

That's the way that I see it anyway, but you are FREE to take the best and leave the rest...

Thanks for watching!

Does the Mayan Calendar Actually End in 2011 & NOT in 2012?


As we approach the year 2012, confusion and speculation surrounding the ancient Mayans’ calendar system is at an all-time high. If you watch the History Channel or have kept up-to-date with Hollywood releases over the last few years then you, like most people, probably assume that the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012.

The first thing to address regarding this assumption is that the Mayans, along with most ancient civilizations, utilized multiple calendars. Our modern western-dominated culture utilizes only the Gregorian calendar which has the sole purpose of tracking commerce and taxes that coincide with the seasons and agricultural interests. While the Mayans had a calendar like the Gregorian calendar for tracking these very important purposes (Haab calendar), they also had calendars for tracking time from more spiritually significant perspectives. One example is the Tzolkin calendar which is a 260-day cycle comprised of thirteen (13) intentions and twenty (20) aspects of creation. The purpose of this daily calendar is to track the flow of creation and according to the Mayans; the day that you are born represents an outline of your life intention and purpose for this life. A typical Mayan is much more likely to ‘care’ about what day it is according to the Tzolkin calendar than according to their Gregorian-like Haab calendar which only tracks practical affairs.

The Tun calendar (360 days) combines with the Tzolkin calendar to form the Calendar Round which recalibrates every ~51+ years or so. In ancient times, this was a once in a lifetime event and traditions for its ending and new beginning included eradicating all debts and extinguishing all fires. The Long Count calendar covers a much longer time period and is broken into five (5) ‘Great Ages’ that are each approximately 5,125 years. A complete cycle is, therefore, just under 26,000 years. This is the calendar that the History Channel features almost exclusively. The assumption with this calendar is that since we are actually completing the 5th Great Age of the greater 26,000-year cycle that ‘the end’ must be near. While living during the time of the conclusion of this 5th Great Age is rare, leaping to the conclusion that the end of the world is coming seems far-fetched to me.

By far, the most intriguing calendar from the Mayan’s would have to be the Underworlds calendar. This calendar tracks the evolution of consciousness over time and most of the research into understanding this calendar and its timeline has been compiled by Carl Calleman and Ian Lungold. What makes this calendar so unique is that it tracks time from the beginning (~16.4 billion years ago) of creation until the end of creation. It has, therefore, never ended before and it only has one ending date slated for October 28, 2011. In fact, based on the work of Calleman and Lungold, the Tzolkin, Tun, and Long Count calendars are all slated to end and re-start on October 28, 2011 as well. So what happened to the December 21, 2012 date with destiny? It’s really a matter of the calibration of the start dates for the calendars for which there exists contention. Depending on when you set the starting dates, October 2011 or December 2012 could represent the re-calibration time periods for the Tzolkin, Tun, and Long Count calendars. However, for the Underworlds calendar, October 28, 2011 is the ending date. But the ‘end of creation’ that this represents by no means portends to the ‘end of times’.

The evolution of consciousness though the Underworlds calendar includes nine levels of consciousness development (see photo). Each of these nine levels is divided into thirteen equal segments consisting of seven ‘days’ and six ‘nights’. The length of these ‘days’ and ‘nights’ reduces twenty-fold when moving up each level of consciousness. For example, the lengths of each ‘day’ and ‘night’ through the second level (Mammalian) of consciousness are twenty times less than that of the first level (Cellular) and the lengths through the third level (Familial) are twenty times less than those in the second level (Mammalian). This represents the concept of ‘time acceleration’ or ‘time compression’ as we move up through the levels.



In general, the ‘day’ periods represent awakenings and growth of consciousness for that particular consciousness level while the succeeding ‘night’ period represents the application of what was awakened in the previous ‘day’ period. The seventh and final ‘day’ periods represent the culmination and fruition of the particular consciousness development for that level (i.e. formation of the first cell at the entrance of the seventh ‘day’ of the Cellular cycle ~1.26 billion years ago is the culmination of ‘cellular consciousness’).

Here is an example that is uncanny in terms of timing. We entered the seventh ‘day’ period of the seventh level (Planetary cycle) around 1992. This level of consciousness was about developing a ‘planetary’ awareness or consciousness. This cycle initiated ~1755 AD (the start of industry/pollution) and with each ‘day’ period our awareness of being connected as a planet grew:

4th day – Telephone
5th day – Radio
6th day – TV
7th day – Internet


We are currently racing through the ninth and final level (Universal Co-Creation) from March 9, 2011 through October 28, 2011 (18 earth days per ‘day’ and ‘night’ period). On October 11, 2011, we will enter the seventh ‘day’ of this cycle and for 18 earth days we will be in the seventh ‘day’ period for all levels of consciousness development. After October 28, 2011, the creation story will be complete. But what does this mean? Personally, I see the entire 16.4 billion year period of ‘creation’ as the gestation period and the end of this period as the ‘birth’ of the co-creative process as we realize that we are all one energy.




When it comes down to it, it is your choice which date that you believe the Mayan calendars end and it is your choice to either welcome the potential new era or to fear the end of the way of life that you know. What will you choose?

Jupiter Trine Pluto: Expanding Truth & Empowerment - "The Run"



I REALLY like the potential that this trine between Jupiter and Pluto represents. Jupiter is the planet dealing with expansion, growth, optimism, long distance messages, travel, and higher learning while Pluto deals with transformation, actualization, purging, release, power, and truth. From July 2011 through March 2012 Jupiter and Pluto form a pleasant and flowing trine (120') with each other from the earth signs of Taurus and Capricorn, respectively, that is sure to feature a relatively subtle release from old power structures toward the expansion of truth and wisdom to the masses in some way. You may experience this in your own life as an expanding sense of self-confidence and empowerment in your ability to make choices and to direct your activities in a way that aligns with your highest truth in the world.

Sound too good to be true? Well, its all in what you make of it. But starting with the first of three trines between Jupiter and Pluto on July 7, 2011 you will have roughly 9 months to take advantage of this potential for your own life. Below are the three (3) exact dates that Jupiter and Pluto form a trine with each other over this period.

Jupiter trine Pluto
July 7, 2011
October 28, 2011
March 12, 2012


We have to look back at the beginning of this latest Jupiter/Pluto cycle to get an idea of just what might be ready to find new ground for you in your life. The beginning of this latest cycle occurred in December 2007 when these two planets made their once in 13 years conjunction in the late degrees of Sagittarius. See my article regarding last year's Jupiter/Pluto square for more details on the timing of the planetary cycles for these two planets since December 2007:


Since the sextile and trine aspects are not included in the timeline from my previous article, I have listed all of the major aspects between Jupiter and Pluto since their last conjunction along with their general time frames of influence (1' orb) below:

Jupiter conjunct Pluto - Early-Mid December 2007 (Sagittarius)
Jupiter sextile Pluto - Late January-Early February 2010 (Pisces/Capricorn)
Jupiter square Pluto - July 2010-February 2011 (Aries/Capricorn)
Jupiter trine Pluto - July 2011-March 2012 (Taurus/Capricorn)

Generally speaking, the conjunction in December 2007 represented the 'seed planting' phase for this energy. What ambitions and other forms of self-empowerment were you unwittingly 'testing out' during that time period? The sextile in early 2010 was a period of 'opportunity' to expand our potential on some level related to whatever we started in December 2007. Did you take subtle steps toward any opportunities that winter? The square which started last summer (2010) and just recently ended in late February of this year was a time of 'taking action' with regards to our new found ambitions and new sense of self. Finally, this trine period, which is initiating over the next week, will give us a 9-month opportunity to 'experience' the growth that we have created for ourselves. We will see what all of this 'culminates' to when Jupiter opposes Pluto from August 2013 through April 2014 (see previous article for details on the energy of the opposition).

What I find even more interesting about this Jupiter/Pluto trine is that the asteroid Chiron is also forming sextile aspects (60') to BOTH planets as it lies directly between Jupiter and Pluto in the sign of Pisces for the first of the three trines between them (See chart above). Chiron initiated a sextile with Jupiter earlier this month which will last through February 2012. Chiron's sextile to Pluto initiated in late June and will last through January 2015! However, this first week of July 2011 is the ONLY time during any of the periods mentioned where ALL THREE planetary bodies (Jupiter, Pluto, & Chiron) will be within 1' orb of each other.

The last of the three trines between Jupiter and Pluto features a retrograde Mars completing a 'grand trine' with this configuration from the sign of Virgo. Considering this last aspect occurs just hours before my next Solar Return (i.e. birthday) in March 2012, I am excited about the prospects! But, in any case, this Jupiter/Pluto trine certainly isn't occurring in a vacuum as other planetary bodies will be involved in what 'evolves' with this transit.

Adding Chiron to the equation for this trine between Jupiter and Pluto adds a layer of 'revealing' and 'healing' to this new found growth into our truth. Exposure and vulnerability are sure to be a part of this overall energy over the next 1 to 3 years. This goes for our own lives as well as the world at large. To me, Chiron in Pisces adds a layer of potential healing on a massive scale. Considering that Jupiter in Taurus deals with the expansion of information/resources and Pluto in Capricorn deals with the total destruction/transformation of existing power structures, I wanted to use a real-world example of a large-scale potential to spread tangible information to a massive audience with the potential of healing.

I realized that I didn't need to look much beyond my own Midtown Sacramento, CA neighborhood for just such an example! On July 17, 2011 (and through November 16, 2011), Dr. Dennis Godby (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine), his two sons, and his nephew will be running from San Francisco, CA to Bridgeport, CT to raise awareness about alternative health options that are available through natural medicine. The event is being referred to as "The Run" and its goal is to highlight the need to put 'health back in American health care'. As Dr. Godby states:

“We live in a nation where the only widely acceptable approach to medicine is pharmaceutical-based, and focused on treatment of advanced disease. We need to go beyond treating disease, and even beyond preventing disease. We need to move toward real health, which means so much more than just preventing really bad things from happening...”


While these ideas are not new, perhaps it is finally 'time' for such knowledge to become more widespread and to fall more into the mainstream acceptance field. Currently, existing health care structures like Medicare are up for review/questioning and its just possible that an effort to spread tangible information/resources over a long distance (Jupiter in Taurus) with the intention of revealing outworn pharmaceutical-driven systems in need of reform (Pluto in Capricorn) so that people on a massive scale have a chance to actually heal from their ailments (Chiron in Pisces) could be 'just what the doctor ordered'...or just what the Naturopathic Doctor ordered for this time period :).

I am curious as to whether December 2007 was a significant 'seed planting' time for this endeavor. As a patient of Dr. Godby's, I know for certain that the Jupiter/Pluto square time period from July 2010 through early March 2011 WAS a time of work and taking action toward the development of this large event. I am also curious to know whether early 2010 (Jupiter/Pluto sextile in late Feb/early March) featured a time that the wheels started to roll with regards to developing the event. In any case, this current time period is the PERFECT ENERGY to unleash the information and awareness for which the "The Run" has intended. I expect that this event will be LARGER in terms of influence and outreach than Dr. Godby has envisioned thus far. But I am sure he will be a little too focused on his feet hitting the pavement over the next several months to notice any impact until he is finished in November! Good luck to Dr. Godby and his sons/nephew!

Whatever comes out of this effort will likely not bear its fruits until the period from August 2013 through April 2014 when Jupiter opposes Pluto. There is always a lag time between information and implementation, so perhaps it will take a couple of years before new health care systems are created that support the intentions of natural medicine and the awareness that this event will bring to the masses. Guess we will have to wait and see!

With regards to natural medicine in general, I ran across this published article from December 2007 on the function of ginger in inhibiting cell growth in ovarian cancer:
http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6882/7/44/abstract

While it may be 2-3 years before the Jupiter/Pluto opposition that will bear the fruits and implementation of seeds like this that were planted around December 2007, rest assured that 2011 will be a BIG year with regards to pushing the envelope and unveiling the TRUTH about health/healing and the strangle-hold that pharmaceutical companies have had over the health care industry and on YOUR health in recent decades! Its time we ALL grow in this awareness.

For more information on "The Run" and when it may be coming to a city near you, please check out the following website:

Also, if you live in the Sacramento area, there is a Health Festival to Celebrate Natural Medicine on Friday, July 22 at Fremont Park (corner of 16th/Q). The runners will also be crossing the Sacramento River and entering Sacramento over the Tower Bridge on Thursday, July 21 if you want to witness it from the Capitol. The Friday event will also be part of the welcome party for the runners. If you are a local vendor with health related products and/or services, there may still be room to get on the vendor list! Contact me for details on becoming a vendor!

Partial Solar Eclipse – 7/1/2011


Its eclipse season again! This most recent round started off with a partial solar eclipse that peaked at approximately 5:03pm EDT on Wednesday, June 1. This eclipse was followed by a total lunar eclipse which peaked at approximately 4:14pm EDT on Wednesday, June 15 and another partial solar eclipse that peaks at approximately 4:54am EDT on Friday, July 1.

Eclipses usually occur two weeks apart from each other twice per year. Each series typically includes a lunar eclipse followed by a solar eclipse or vice versa. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is partially blocking the moon from the sun during a full moon. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the sun from the Earth during a new moon. Full moons and new moons represent astrologically potent time periods anyway, but the eclipses just add some amplification and usually a little dose of the unexpected!

Astrologically speaking, new moons are generally a time of sowing seeds while full moons are a time of reaping what we sow. Where a new moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of new beginnings and laying new foundations in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted. Where a full moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of sudden awareness, revelation, culmination and completion in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted. Eclipses just add some spice and surprise to these time periods.

Ancient astrologers saw eclipse seasons as especially potent time periods with regards to wars and the fate of nations. I personally prefer to look at eclipses relative to the lives and relationships of individuals. In this regard, eclipse seasons are often potent times for unexpected change in terms of surprise new beginnings and to final culminations of things which have been building for some time.

This particular solar eclipse occurs at 9° Cancer and will form a ‘Grand Cross’ with Pluto (opposition) in Capricorn, Saturn (square) in Libra, and Uranus (square) in Aries. Depending on where this lands in your own personal natal chart, this eclipse has an ‘out with the old, in with the new’ feel to it. Recent stagnation in our lives is poised to break and allow a new flow but not without resistance from both within & without. All we can do is control what we are resisting and hanging onto unnecessarily. This eclipse marks a break and release point that will provide much growth but we must be willing to release what no longer serves us.

The experiences of this nature would be felt within the domain of the astrological house that encompasses the location of this eclipse at 9° Cancer. You would need to consult your own natal chart to find out where this position falls for you. For example, this point falls in my natal 10th house which is the house covering career, reputation, public standing, & recognition. For me (and everyone else who has 9° Cancer in their 10th house) this could mark a release and a new beginning related to career and public image. The rest of the ‘grand cross’ configuration throughout my 1st, 4th, & 7th houses points to new adjustments with regards to the type of employee/employer relationship to which I have been accustomed. Perhaps this will feature an opportunity to be more in my own authority within an employee/employer relationship than I have been presented with to date.

This eclipse also aligns with a Yod configuration in my natal chart suggesting that crucial decisions related to my path and ‘destiny’ is up for consideration. I better pay attention.

The combination of the house location of the eclipse, its aspects to other current planets, and its aspects to the personal natal planets yields a very unique interpretation for each individual. For the best results in this case, find out where this solar eclipse and the other planets involved fall in your natal chart. Then find any planets or personal points in your natal chart that are also aspected by these configurations.

Location of Current Solar Eclipse Configurations

Solar Eclipse – Sun/Moon @ 9° Cancer

Saturn – 11° Libra

Pluto – 6° Capricorn

Uranus – 4° Aries

Jupiter – 5° Taurus

Neptune – 1° Pisces

The effects of this eclipse may ripple out as long as a few months with initial conditions starting at or near the eclipse date (July 1, 2011). The ‘trigger point’ for this energy occurs when Mars hits 9° Cancer around August 17th. Keep your eyes open at that time in terms of these themes for your life. This lands right in the middle of the next Mercury Retrograde period suggesting further that this particular eclipse will involve crucial introspection to release outworn baggage and open to newer ways of being.

General Advice:

It’s time to let go and open up to what awaits us. Clinging to old habits and ways will only cause suffering now as life is about to adjust in ways that will require our willing intention in order for it to run smoothly.

Good luck!

Total Lunar Eclipse – 6/15/2011


Its eclipse season again! This most recent round started off with a partial solar eclipse that peaked at approximately 5:03pm EDT on Wednesday, June 1. This eclipse is now followed by a total lunar eclipse which peaks at approximately 4:13pm EDT on Wednesday, June 15 and another partial solar eclipse that peaks at approximately 4:54am EDT on Friday, July 1.

Eclipses usually occur two weeks apart from each other twice per year. Each series typically includes a lunar eclipse followed by a solar eclipse or vice versa. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is partially blocking the moon from the sun during a full moon. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the sun from the Earth during a new moon. Full moons and new moons represent astrologically potent time periods anyway, but the eclipses just add some amplification and usually a little dose of the unexpected!

Astrologically speaking, new moons are generally a time of sowing seeds while full moons are a time of reaping what we sow. Where a new moon falls in our personal natal chart represents a time of new beginnings and laying new foundations in the parts of our lives represented by the astrological house that is highlighted.

Eclipses just add some spice and surprise to these time periods.

Ancient astrologers saw eclipse seasons as especially potent time periods with regards to wars and the fate of nations. I personally prefer to look at eclipses relative to the lives and relationships of individuals. In this regard, eclipse seasons are often potent times for unexpected change in terms of surprise new beginnings and to final culminations of things which have been building for some time.

This current lunar eclipse will peak at approximately 24° Sagittarius and it will be opposing Mercury while forming a minor aspect to Mars and a wide trine to Jupiter. This represents a time of culmination, opening, soul, and emotional energy with regards to opening new horizons. When we are open and flexible in the face of change, this can be a rewarding time where we experience the culmination of past efforts. If we have been creating against our best interests or if we have been keeping things under the surface, this may mark a stressful time of culmination with regards to the release of our secrets or the results of our less than stellar creations. The experiences of this nature would be felt within the domain of the astrological house that encompasses the location of this eclipse at 24° Sagittarius. You would need to consult your own natal chart to find out where this position falls for you.

For example, this point falls in my natal 4th house which is the house covering home, emotions, family, and the past. For me (and everyone else who has 24° Sagittarius in their 4th house) this could mark a culmination and opening related to my home base or deeply buried emotions. This eclipse includes challenging aspects to Mars in my 9th house and a flowing aspect to Jupiter in my 8th house. This may mark a time in my life where my comfort zone is rapidly expanded and where I find myself supported in ways I never would have espoused. But I need to be open to allowing ‘foreign’ opportunities into my life for this to be possible. Trusting the process of expansion and welcoming assistance will be a key element of this experience for me.

My natal Sun, Moon, AC, MC, Neptune, and lunar nodes are all aspected heavily by this eclipse. The fact that I was born during a lunar eclipse increases its importance for me even further. Yes, this one could be pretty intense for me (also true for anyone born around the 15th of March, June, September & December)!

In general, this eclipse includes challenging aspects to Mars in Taurus and a flowing aspect to Jupiter in Taurus. Whatever this leads to for you, it may feel like a massive opening and realization. In some cases, difficult adjustments may have to be accommodated relative to what rapidly develops and transpires.

The combination of the house location of the eclipse, its aspects to other current planets, and its aspects to the personal natal planets yields a very unique interpretation for each individual. For the best results in this case, find out where this lunar eclipse and the other planets involved fall in your natal chart. Then find any planets or personal points in your natal chart that are also aspected by these configurations.

Location of Current Lunar Eclipse Configurations

Lunar Eclipse à Moon @ 24° Sagittarius, Sun @ 24° Gemini

Mars - 26° Taurus

Jupiter - 2° Taurus

The effects of this eclipse may ripple out as long as a few months with initial conditions starting at or near the eclipse date (June 15, 2011). The ‘trigger point’ for this energy occurs when Mars hits 24° Gemini in late July (~ the 26th +/-). Keep your eyes open at that time in terms of these themes coming to fruition in your life.

General Advice:

New developments are likely to rapidly develop and require some difficult adjustments in our typical approach to the situation. A willingness to compromise and grow from these new experiences is what is called for here.

Good luck!
