Jupiter Turns Direct Today!

Jupiter changes direction today, moving forward again after several months of retrograde travel.  When planets change direction they slow down to a crawl and their influence becomes more powerful than ever. Jupiter’s influence is all about good luck and good fortune, as well as confidence and our potential for growth in all areas.  There is a tendency towards generosity but also of indulgence.  Jupiter is in Aquarius now, where it has been aligned with Chiron and Neptune since the early part of 2009.  In Aquarius, Jupiter is even more idealistic […]

The collision of Jupiter and the Triple Conjunction

Jupiter and Chiron reached their exact conjunction on Wednesday for their second time in this cycle, just as it was discovered that a huge body in space slammed into Jupiter, giving it a bruise “as big as the Pacific ocean.” Chiron of course is known as the “Wounded Healer,” and the synchronicity of the wound to Jupiter becoming known to us here on Earth as Jupiter conjoined Chiron is an interesting one.  Those two are within a degree of an exact conjunction to Neptune as well, and the Triple Conjunction is […]

Total eclipse of the Sun, July 21-22 2009

The New Moon that occurs at 10:35 pm EDT on July 21 (2 am GMT July 22) is also a total solar eclipse, in which the Moon passes in front of the Sun from our perspective here on Planet Earth, obscuring the light of the Sun for a short time. Solar eclipses always occur at the time of the New Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in the same degree of an astrological sign and said to be conjunct.  Because the conscious intention of the solar principle combines with the instinctive longings […]

An astrological look at elections in Iran


Maybe holding elections in Iran on the day that Mercury (communication and information) was in a challenging square to the big Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune conjunction wasn’t the best idea. During the past few weeks the opposition candidate, Hussein Moussavi, had become wildly popular especially with women, many of whom crave liberation from the oppressive Islamist regime.  News reports claim that the turnout exceeded 82%, but the current president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad appeared to have been elected in a landslide. The country erupted in riots today as the hopes of millions of voters were dashed […]

Mercury squares the Big Three today

Mercury is moving quickly through Taurus and today it forms a challenging square to the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Aquarius. Mercury is the processor of our experiences; it digests the stuff of our daily existence and converts it into usable data that can be run through the softwareof our mind. The square is a challenging 90 degree formation and today it may be difficult to process the emotions that are springing forth as a result of the triple conjunction.  But as with any challenging aspect, the discomfort of the challenge […]

Full Moon in Scorpio on Friday!

full moon scorpio

Images from La Chambre Magique. The Scorpio Full Moon technically doesn’t occur until 12:01 am on Saturday (May 9) EDT (how appropriate for the Scorpio lunation!!), but the energy will be building all day as the Moon gets closer to its opposition with the Sun. Full Moons are intense because of this oppositional pull between the Sun and the Moon that forces us to balance the polarity of the opposite signs.  In this particular case we are working with the intensity of Scorpio’s emotional need for drama and depth with the […]
