Get Through Problem by jesadaphon; freedigitalphotos.netIf you’re among the ranks of those feeling the growing intensity over recent weeks, take heart. Help is on the way.

Jupiter just picked up Mighty Mouse’s theme song (in rich baritone, of course), “Here I come to save the day…!”

You see Jupiter and Pluto have been talking all month and have agreed to join forces now in Virgo to power up some long overdue transformation, both collectively and personally (if it aspects your chart). Astrologically this appears as a trine, an easy flow of energy between these two cosmic dynamos. Pluto removes everything that stands in the way of our growth and evolution.   Jupiter makes everything bigger, more expansive or pronounced. Together they broaden the possibilities for wide-range and long-lasting change.

But there’s a catch.

You see, trines tend to feel so comfortable that they can be overlooked. With this one, however, I think it will be pretty hard to miss. Yet it is up to you to apply it if you want to get the most out of it.

Pluto’s energy works at deep levels, in the realms of our deepest secrets, bringing all sorts of taboo subjects into the spotlight—particularly around anything having to do with sex (affairs and sexual scandals, sexual abuse and harassment, breast feeding, abortion, gender preference, sexual stereotypes, sex education, sex in advertising, sex shops, etc.). It also deals with money in regard to loans, joint finances, other people’s money, and money owed to you.  Plus it governs psychology, why we do what we do.

Jupiter, sometimes called the “lucky planet,” can bring great gain—or loss. You see, this energy expands whatever it touches, so a small gain turns into a windfall or little loss into a pitfall. Yet this is just one way Jupiter’s energy can play out. It can expand anything, from friendships to your waistline, from the size of your house to the manifestation of your dreams (or fears).

So what’s the key to using this highly beneficial Jupiter-Pluto trine? Aim high! It’s that simple, and that complicated. Before taking aim you must see your target clearly. In astrology you do that by identifying the Houses where this energy will impact your own personal chart. What areas of life do they cover? When you know this, set your sights on an issue or achievement that falls within those topics.

Be patient here; Plutonian change comes over time. This is the first of a series of three Jupiter-Pluto trines in a larger 12-year Jupiter cycle so look at this as another initiation phase. What starts under this energy (which lasts virtually all this month) will be revisited around March 16, 2016 then given the opportunity for completion around June 26, 2016.

That said, realize that Uranus is getting in on the action again this week. The Libra New Moon on October 12th here in the U.S. (the 13th in other parts of the globe), contains lots of Uranian energy. The Moon joins shocking and rebellious Uranus in power sign Aries as Uranus stands in opposition to the illuminating Sun in Libra (relationships, money, justice). Since the Moon often acts as a trigger and New Moons signal new beginnings, be ready for some surprises on any level from this. Just sayin’…

Plus this New Moon occurs at 19° Libra, which in numerology reduced as 19/10/1. If you’ve been with me awhile you know that 10/1 can bring instant manifestations. Also 19 by itself signals endings (9) that support a beginning (1).

This week also signals the start of a final retightening of the old Pluto-Uranus Square we waved a somber or perhaps gleeful goodbye to last Spring. While it will not reach exactitude, it will continue to tighten to within 1° in December of this year. Squares in astrology bring tension requiring action for resolution. This brings a revisitation of anything brought to light over the past 7 years, offering an opportunity to elevate the levels of change around these old subjects…and perhaps a few new ones. (That should make this U.S. election season fun, right?)

The planets and luminaries as a whole are really cozying up in the signs of Virgo and Libra this month. Both Mars and Venus will blend their energies with Jupiter in the Jupiter-Pluto trine. Mars charges ahead on the 17th, adding power to act on ideas. Our will or the will of the collective gains a new or renewed drive; a can-do attitude. This combination also brings urgency with a focus on faith (Jupiter) with action. The key here it to stay focused and not overly grandiose.

Venus, on the 25th, shifts any wayward focus back to love, fairness, equality, and money. During the Venus retrograde and shadow period that ended October 8th, we were strongly urged to up level our relationships. (Venus rules Libra, you know.) It’s also a time to get real around the way money affects you and/or adds or subtracts value to or from your life. Are you living in a fantasy world, refusing to see or deal with your current reality? How does that affect your relationships? What steps can you take now and across the next several months to realign those issues?

Oh, and we mustn’t forget Mercury in all of this. This planet that governs communication backed all the way through the sign of Libra before going direct on October 9th and remains in a strong shadow period until the 24th. For many this created some funny, frustrating, or totally mind-blowing occurrences when coupled with the eclipse energy of September.

Imagine being the editor of The Bismark Tribune, for example, where two blatant errors slipped through within a couple days of each other. The first, in a cutline under a picture read in part, “…all of Duluth, keep an eye out for fucks during a hunt…” The second may have escaped the eye of all but the spelling czars if it hadn’t been in the main front page headline: Probe looks at DOT work enviornment. I’ve worked as a newspaper editor and can fully empathize with seeing things like that make it into print. Humble pie, anyone? An apology from the paper did appear shortly thereafter.

This acts as a good reminder that we may not like what we see, “Be we can control our response…” (Wink!) This one came from a newsletter. Truly, I saw more of these than ever.

Well Mercury, slowly gaining speed, at 1°Libra sextiled (positive energy) Saturn at 1°Sagittarius on the 11th. See all those ones? This aspect urged patience while enabling you to know who to talk too and what to say. Sounds like a good way to start things to me.

Then on the 22-24, Mercury squares Pluto at 13°, that number of transformation through struggle. You may find yourself struggling with how to say something you must reveal, but really don’t want to. Or you may discover someone has revealed your deepest secret to the worst possible person. How will you respond to bring positive transformation in the face of criticism or humiliation? Be creative (3) and see all sides (Libra).

Be aware that Lilith, traveling along with the Sun, is likely to bring more than a little disturbance along the way this month. This may appear as disruptions that involve core survival instincts and issues. If this happens remember that this Libran energy will encourage you to return to balance as soon as possible. It is from this stance you find the mental, emotional, and physical stability (Virgo) to act from the point of your truth and purpose. And that, above all else, is what we are called to do these days.

Incidentally, if you’d like me to check the Houses where this Jupiter-Pluto trine activates your chart, drop me a note through my website below. Consider it my surprise free gift to you (for this month only). See? Jupiter is gifting you already!

I’m a Full Moon junkie, most of the time that is.  Love the energy, love the view.  I must admit,Full Moon Over Water by Exsodus; though, the last two knocked me to my knees for a day.  That can happen when it creates a hard aspect to your natal chart.  So now I’m eyeballing the one coming up May 14th, and here’s what I see.

The Moon becomes full at 19:16 Universal Time.  (That’s 7:16 PM in the U.K.).  Saturn, meanwhile, is hanging out in Scorpio at 19 degrees.  See the repeated number?  That adds intensification.  The 19 reduces to 10 and then 1 (1+9=10/1), the number of instant manifestation—be that manifestation good or not so good.  This is important here because Moon transits don’t last long as a general rule.  Full Moon energy does last longer, however, underscoring another reason to pay attention.  Plus the 16 reduces to 7, showing that whatever transpires at this time is supported by spiritual and intellectual power.  And that is further activated by the 7 Universal Year.

The Saturn/Moon conjunction is known for bringing up defensiveness, self-defensiveness mainly.  It can make us feel trapped or overburdened with responsibility.  Remember, Saturn is the “taskmaster” of the planets and the Moon rules emotions.  Yet this time it is part of a Grand Water Trine involving Chiron (healing) at 17° Pisces and Jupiter (expansion) at 17° Cancer.  This means that the energy between these planets will flows easily without restraint.  And numerically, whenever the 17 is activated, it encourages good judgment and often leaves a legacy of some kind.  Oh, did I mention that May 14th is a 17/8 Universal Day?  That intensifies the energy even more.

Wait!  There’s more.  These energies combine to focus directly on Pluto (transformation) at 13° (transformation) Capricorn (work, responsibility) in what’s known as a Grand Kite formation.  This softens the effects of the other harsher aspects now affecting us all (aka, Pluto/Uranus Square).  Yet while doing so it encourages us to use these energies right here and now to bring about true transformation in our lives.

At the time of Full Moons, the Sun always lies in direct opposition.  This time the Moon (emotions) at 23° Scorpio shares the balance beam with the Sun (personality, self-empowerment) at 23° Taurus.  The number 23 reduces to 5, the number of pivotal change.  This opposition is quite likely to make you feel pulled between making a difficult choice to become more of who you truly are or to stay in the same old pattern for the sake of stability.  This is compounded further by the Moon/Saturn’s intensification of needing to feel safe and secure.  With this conjunction in Scorpio, insights may rise from your subconscious or appear through information previously hidden, at least to you.

Since Full Moons bring culmination or completion—sometimes gently and sometimes forcefully—things begun at the last New Moon, look back to April 29th.  Can you identify what you are encouraged to finish now?  It may be a stage or phase of something much larger.  It may be a total completion or release.  The stage or complexity is not the issue here.  What matters is that you see it and use these energies to move your life forward in some way.  Or not.  The choice, as always, is up to you.  There is no right or wrong in this, only better or not so good.  Just know I’m rooting for you.  (wink)

(Here’s an aside.  Have you ever considered keeping a log or journal of your journey at these Moon phases?  You can make it as simple or detailed as you wish.  Jot a note on your calendar or write three pages in your journal, it’s up to you.   Just make sure it’s done in a way that you can easily track what begins and what ends at the New or Full Moons.  You may be surprised what it reveals.)

After Full Moon energy ebbs, it is quite normal to feel less energetic in the time leading up to the next New Moon (which happens to be May 28th, by the way).  However that may not hold true this time because Mars goes direct May 19th.  (There’s that number 19 again.)  It will remain in Venus for several more months, which could be a good thing for tempering hostilities around the globe.  Yet Mars is only one factor in that, remember, and its power will intensify somewhat as it goes direct.

Ah, cosmic wonders.  Till next time, here’s looking at the Moon!
