Gibbous Moon Moon in Cancer/Leo (12:41 pm ET/5:41 pm UT): trust in a higher power and order

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Matangi (Goddess of Soft Breezes)

Skill: soften up

Positive Imprint: determination and drive, deep realizations, the transformation of situations, pausing, archetypes, seeing beyond appearances, sounding a call, faith

Negative Imprint: irritable, instability, deception, undermining others, bogged down, demanding attention

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “an old adobe mission” (projecting projects and ideas into the future, spiritual retreat)

Today, wise owls will view detours, do-overs, misfires, false starts, and obstacles as an opportunity. This is something of a test for us today. Instead of succumbing to frustration, we “clue in” when things start going sideways and let the soft breeze of Matangi take over. She will untangle the situation for us, showing or teaching us something in the process.

The primary catalysts for the disruption are Mercury retrograde. But the energetic of the Sun today at the Sabian symbol of “a train entering a tunnel” directs us to keep going no matter what. Continue reading

Djwhal Khul ~ New Moon Mercury Direct

rp_djwhalKhul.jpgDjwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.

Alright. We’re on a New Moon essentially. We’ve got Chiron retrograde in psychic Pisces sort of kicking up old wounds and when they surface, don’t hold on to them and rethink them. Just get it out of the body, get it out of the system, get it out of the aura. Use whatever tools you have to do this.

And really practice being in the present moment: what is true right now and how do you want to feel right now.

Now the New Moon kind of adds emphasis to that. Mercury is still retrograde although it will go direct on July 1, it’s not going to feel like it’s direct, in fact I think it’s going to feel even a bit more muddled maybe for another 5 to 7 days. Worse than what it was during the actual 3 week retrograde.

So do be cautious there and continue to clarify your communications and others’ communications.

Alright dear ones. As always, thank you and my love to you.

M Kelley Hunter ~ Storylines

“This is a perfect alignment for celebrating Friday the 13th, a special goddess day. Friday is named for Frigga, the Nordic Venus, and there are thirteen Moon cycles in a year. No wonder the patriarchal powers thought it an unlucky, witchy day!” ~M K Hunter

The polarity dynamic between the SUN in open-minded GEMINI and the FULL MOON in goal-oriented SAGITTARIUS reveals options and new vistas and visions. What is your storyline? New threads and old are being woven into the plot, as we watch the movie of our lives move into a new chapter. The old threads are stitches we are picking up thanks to the Mercury retrograde cycle. Are you hearing from old friends or calling family members, reviving significant bonds?

These two flexible signs work well together when all opinions are aired, not just the noisiest, dominant, (likely to be biased) one. Still, someone needs to direct the show, hopefully not the part of you with narrow belief systems. This Gemini-Sagittarius Full Moon can bring out the intuitive, visionary manager who sees where everyone on the team can make the best contribution, where each point of view fits into the puzzle. A variety of our sub-personality voices are vocal. A change-up is called for, though there might be a musical chairs shift of positions before each element is properly positioned. Various points of view inform the long-term vision. After that’s settled, no pussyfooting around. Let’s get going with faith, firm belief and enthusiasm. Are you with the program? If you can’t make a commitment, at least for the short term, you belong elsewhere, and that will be best for everybody. Continue reading

Henry Seltzer ~ A Fraught And Startling First Quarter Moon

“There is a forming trine to Chiron as well from retrograde Saturn in Pisces. This latter aspect indicates that authority figures could seem to be trouble rather than helpers, at least to our inner gaze, and that the fear of structure, or of losing it, could come to the forefront of our consciousness.” ~Henry Seltzer

Thursday afternoon’s First Quarter Moon has something for everyone, and represents quite an interesting time, when anything can happen, with all the feelings of anticipation and excitement for the new thing that this idea implies. This is also a time when our fears for a less predictable future are simultaneously stirred, so that we also might experience some degree of negative feelings associated with loss of constancy and structure. This phase in any case represents running into curve balls that we did not expect as we set out, full of confidence, at the time of the New Moon, one week past. The shift in the energy right now is palpable, because Mercury has also come to a virtual standstill in early Cancer, preparing to station retrograde early on Saturday morning.

The New Moon, in the exact middle degree of Virgo, makes a very close inconjunct aspect to Uranus in the same degree ofAries, with the Sun in sextile. Mars in Libra is also coming into opposition once again with Uranus, growing closer and closer to exact over the next two weeks. This is therefore a time when surprise is in the air, together with the startling enlightenment brought about by new ways of looking at the world around us, the intoxication of new wine in old bottles. The Sun and Moon are both ruled by mischievous Mercury. The messenger planet is more out there, even, than usual. Mercury’s unfamiliar placement in the sign of Cancer is definitely a bit odd, and together with its current uncharacteristic lack of forward motion, plus the symbolism associated with a highlighted Uranus, make for a difficult passage for those who like to keep their feet firmly planted on terra firma. These astrological indications hint that strange and untoward events this week are more likely than not. Continue reading

Eric Francis ~ Mercury Stations Retrograde In Scorpio

PlanetWaves  October 21 2013

[On October 21] we experience the first of a series of events involving Scorpio, which together make up the peak astrology of 2013. It’s fair to say that Scorpio is the most challenging sign for many people, mainly due to the subject matter it covers: a dimension of the emotional/ psychological/ psychic realm that embraces the themes of sex, death, surrender and exchange of resources (money, feelings, DNA, and others).

To understand Scorpio, then imagine this whole branch of experience thrown under a veil of denial or concealed by a game of pretend, broadly known as taboo.

Taboos tend to cover some of the most obvious facets of life, as well as the ones we’re the most curious about and driven by.

Humans tend to live with taboo like it’s the thing to do, though after a while, if you’re paying attention, you might notice that it starts to seem like we live in a society of people who don’t wash or practice any form of hygiene in the bathroom, and are convinced that nobody else notices. The reek of the lies, secrets and denial becomes totally oppressive, but just about everyone pretends it’s not there.

Henry Seltzer ~ An Intensely Transformationally Oriented October

Astrograph  October 2 2013

The Astrology of October features Mercury, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto. Mercury has its final retrograde period of the year beginning on the 21st, and the lunations of this quarter highlight the forming Uranus-Pluto square as well as Chiron. The October 4th New Moon forms a T-square with Uranus and Pluto, and is also accompanied by an exact inconjunct between Saturn and Uranus, while Neptune is highlighted at the time of the October 18th Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. With all these outer planet activations over this three-month period, we are heading for another strong dose of the evolutionary mandate that has been stirring within all of us over recent years, in this turbulent decade. The situation that we are in, both individually and collectively, is dire but not impossible. It might be time for each of us to step up to the plate and take a good swing at what we need to do, in order that we make the best of what we are now facing and make an important move toward forward motion into our next evolutionary stage.

This late fall period is punctuated by the next installment of Uranus in perfect square with Pluto, taking place on November 1st, the fourth of seven exact hits in this decade. All through these ending months of 2013 the energy will be strongly felt. Saturn is also an important part of the picture this month, aspecting both Uranus and also Pluto. This was a powerful archetypal factor during the height of the revolutionary sixties, when Saturn opposed Uranus and Pluto simultaneously with their conjunction. This Saturn pass is a bit more esoteric, being an inconjunct aspect to Uranus and a sextile to Pluto, but it still symbolizes that things are stirring up. Revolution – in addition to spiritual evolution – is definitely in the air.

Jon David Miller ~ 13 Mass Public Poisons

Activist Post August 24 2013 (Thanks, A.L.)

We are being poisoned. This mass public poisoning has been going on for over a century, and it has been gradually increasing. You and those you care about are being harmed almost continuously. We are being abused with multiple poisons in small doses on purpose.

The more of us that become aware of some of the most common ways this is happening, the better chance we have of reducing or ending exposure to at least some of the poisons.


This highly toxic chemical warfare agent has been added to public water supplies since about 1910 as a disinfectant. The now common health problems of circulatory disease and cancer became widespread only after the masses started being chlorinated regularly. Drinking it, bathing in it, breathing it and soaking it up in our showers, and consuming it in most food and beverage products made with city water, makes chlorine one of the most common public poisons.


The fluoride added to municipal water and dental care products is not really good for your teeth. It is a cancer causing, apathy inducing, intelligence reducing chemical, a waste product of aluminum and phosphate manufacturing. It was accumulating at production plants in the 1940s and ruining local ground water.

The industry first tried to get rid of excess stocks of fluoride by marketing it as rat poison, but not enough was sold. Then in the 1950s they concocted the scheme of convincing the American Dental Association to recommend it be added to public water supplies and oral care products to harden teeth. In the long run, it actually makes teeth brittle and mottled, while diminishing people’s IQ, minimizing active interests and shortening lives.


Aluminum has long been used in cookware and food service material. As people learned of its toxicity, they started abandoning aluminum pans and avoiding heating food wrapped in foil.

Henry Seltzer ~ Star Of David Quarter Moon

Astrograph July 28 2013

Monday’s Last Quarter Moon is of great interest, in that it summarizes a powerful lunation cycle that has had an important Mercury Retrograde as well as many outer planet connections; it is also fascinating in that the Moon trines Venus to complete a grand sextile with SaturnNeptuneJupiter andPluto. This inscribed six-pointed star within the circle of the Zodiac is a pattern also known as a Star of David. It is understandably rare and magical, and it actually consists of two interlocking grand trines, in Earth and in Water. Within these graceful flowing aspects it holds great promise for healing and peaceful energy as we end an intense month of July and take one further step toward what might in fact become a difficult fall period; punctuated as it is by another dose of Uranus and Pluto in their square formation, becoming exact on November 1st.

This Last Quarter Moon itself does not consist of entirely easy aspects. TheSun in Leo is square the Taurus Moon, and also squares Saturn in Scorpio. A T-square to the Sun, involving Saturn, implies that we are in for a somewhat difficult passage out of Mercury‘s retrograde shadow, that part of the retrograde period when Mercury is making up its lost Zodiacal longitude, its return to the degree of Cancerwhere it stationed at the end of June. Mercury escapes its retrograde shadow on August 4th, and until then certain vestiges of the usual symptoms will prevail, perhaps made stronger by the slowdown implied by strong Saturn: communication snafus and other mishaps and the failure of our own planning or of the mechanical and digital components on which we rely.

Simultaneously, and giving a preview of the November situation with Uranus perfectly in square with PlutoMars has moved along through Cancer to the point where it squares Uranus and opposes Pluto, each by a little over a degree. This aspect momentarily triggers these outer planet heavyweights, still in square, just not as close as they will be later on this year. We see all around us on the collective level the evidence of societal breakdown as we prepare for breakthrough; and we continue to see these effects in our own individual lives as well, effects that could be characterized as the chaos that precedes the birth.
