Jupiter in the last degree of Gem Gem 
:: Gem & 3rd house rule neighbors ::
and mine showed up to help me carve my 12 foot hedge. 
WoOoHoOo
Fini.
:::::

While slicing, it occurred to me that Mercury (hearing, speaking) Rx in a few
Saturn (listening) direct in a few
while Jupes is in the last degree of Gemini (curious, gossip) . . .

Pulling into Merc stations & truth pops out, every time.

Ps. Gem rules hands; Jupiter rules largess; Mars scissors; Mercury rules bells
How great is this tune for Jupes at 29 Gem ?!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pluto DESIRES.
Pluto is SEX.
POWER.
OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.
DEATH.
Pluto is FORCE – the drag you kicking and screaming like it or not GAME CHANGER.
Pluto DELVES DEEP.
Pluto is DEFIANCE.
STRUGGLE.
Pluto is INTENSE.
Pluto rules anything small or miraculous.
Pluto may be small but take it from someone who has it hooked up with BOTH luminaries – Pluto’s packin’ one hell of a punch.  Underestimate it at your own peril.

Pluto is the light burning from behind the eyes – the DIVINE WILL.  Pluto is the higher octave of Mars the aggressor.

Mars is the PERSONAL WILL – the physical energy behind the natal chart – it is your blade, your weapon, the traditional ruler of Scorpio.

Mars and Pluto are kicking into gear this week – POWER IS FLUCTUATING.

Pluto is a generational planet, moves slowly and will stay in one sign from anywhere from 11-30 years (average 21 years).

Mars is a personal planet moves through a sign on average every 2 months.
Mars has been in Virgo since November 10, 2011.
Mars kicks the door in on Libra on July 3.
FINALLY.
Eight months of aggressive Virgo nit-picking self - flagellation will be ovah.
Hallelujah AMEN !

Not only will Capricorn and Virgos feel this shift – Scorpio (Pluto rules) and Aries (Mars rules) will likely feel it as well.

In the natal, also find any planets in Scorpio or the 8th house to see where Pluto kicks that planetary energy into high gear.  ie: A Moon in Scorpio or Moon in the 8th is akin to Moon conjunct Pluto.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  I am a late 67 Virgo stellium.  Mercury at MC, with 9th house Sun conjunct Uranus and (8th house) Pluto, Pluto trines my Taurus Moon in 4th.

Sun is the center, the ego, the spirit, it rules the heart and the creative spirit.
Pluto conjunct Sun in my experience is continual life-long ego hits – one right after another.  Sun conjunct Pluto is a regeneration of who you are at the visible level – what others see.  A regeneration of how the self expresses the creative spirit, it is WILL POWER.

Contact with Moon is just as powerful – it is POWERFUL INSTINCTUAL DESIRES and a need to plumb the emotional depths.  It is the subconscious brought to the surface to breathe deeply of fresh air and it ain’t always pretty.  We humans are a twisted little bunch ~ beautiful, but twisted.  Contacts to Moon means fluctuation of personality, family and home, restructuring of security, powerful insight into the psyche – it is emotionally wrangling – the discomfort zone 24/7.

Where Pluto lands you will always find CHANGE and MAJOR GROWTH.

Pluto in any aspect reveals a struggle, a force of atomic change that will completely destabilize and restructure that planetary energy.  Pluto rules atomics – positive or negatively charged atoms are called ions.  When you feel better after a thunderstorm, or after you smudge with sage, that is Pluto at work changing energies on a sub-atomic level.  Expect the same energies at work when dealing with Pluto and Scorpio in the natal chart.

Plutonic energies are shifting in the house of Capricorn.
Martian energies are shifting in the house of Virgo.

Find your Capricorn and Virgo houses (also Scorpio and Aries houses) and apply the below to your chart to see where you will be feeling the shift in energies.

Here’s a very general guideline:
1/7 = self/others
2/8 = mine/ours
3/9 = learning/teaching
4/10 = home/career
5/11 = personal will/ will for others
6/12 = personal health & work/ universal health & service

If you need a quick fix and release from overwhelming desires - disengage. (click)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pluto stations retrograde on Tuesday (USA) in trine to Mars Rx in Virgo and trine Jupiter in Taurus.  That’s gonna tap the primal instincts and crank up the volume on the libido.  Especially true since Moon is trine Sun and Uranus from free – wheeling Sagittarius.

Emotions and instincts are expansive and we are communicating them. Mercury is coming up to dance with Uranus in Aries again, so surprises are on the way from men in your life.  Communications with women or lovers are favored with a quintile between Mercury and Venus.

Silence and the Source


Tomasz Maronski

Saturn shut my Mercury MC down last night.
Or rather, my Pluto transit did.
Saturn rules silence.
Pluto rules fubar.
Power. Struggle.
Helplessness.

Mercury went quiet.
Feeling the squeeze from everywhere.
Tilt.

Pluto leaves you standing there gaping: thinking w.t.f. ! are you kidding me ?!?
It forces any and and all issues to the surface, drags up the ugly and throws it in your face.  It transmutes, metamorphs and kills one thing in order to birth another.

Rogue: When they come out… does it hurt ?
Wolverine: Every time.

Pluto is currently square Sun in Pisces, and Uranus conjunct Mercury Rx in Aries.
Moon is constrictive to begin with and now it is in Saturn - ruled Capricorn coming up to conjunct Pluto again.

Moon conjunct Pluto will be high-octane off the charts emo crap, and it is in the Grand Earth Trine, is likely dealing with work or personal goals in some way (Capricorn).

This can be very healing, as far as purging the toxins, literally and metaphorically.
Possibility of healing manifested rapidly with tangible results.
Moon and Pluto rule vomiting.
Sucks, but you feel better after.
Typical Pluto.

Moon Pluto squares to the Sun, Uranus, Merc Rx will reveal new emotions, directions, ideas, and creative prospects to mull over in your brain.

New insights both incoming and outgoing are on the agenda with Merc Rx back over Uranus.   How do you compete with words and ideas ? 
May want to re- think that.

Mercury Rx and Mars are in mutual reception, so they are in constant communication, right off the bat.
Mercury is steeping in Aries, house of Mars, as is Uranus.

Watch your peripheral vision, your headspace ~ what you let in and out – mental / verbal wheels are burning tread at the starting line.  Caution is advised.

FYI: Mars Rx, Jupiter and Pluto are all at 9 degrees today
…put the knife down and back away slowly…
nines indicate endings, completion and saying goodbye to something

blessed be~

Nikki Giovanni

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to hear one of my favorite poets, Nikki Giovanni speak recently ~ she was dazzling, vivacious, insightful, bawdy and very direct !

I knew she was a Gemini, but I couldn’t wait to get home and look up more details about her chart and the life she described so vividly.
Nikki is a life path 3.  This indicates a life of creation, expansion, exploration, reconciliation and communication.  Nikki is a Gemini Sun, Leo Moon with Cancer rising which makes Moon her chart ruler.

First thing I notice is the majority of her planets fall into the Eastern hemisphere – she is in a sowing incarnation and is in control of her life circumstances.

Second thing I notice is the lack of difficult (square, opposition) aspects between the planetary bodies.  (Scroll down to the key to see her squares to Chiron, ASC and MC)  Her one opposition is between the planet of poetry, Neptune, and Mars (power) elevated, in Aries the sign Mars rules.  Mars in 10th is a powerful placement, it indicates a strong, self-assured go-getter in life and career. (10th is the natural house of Capricorn where Mars is exalted.)

Nikki has some whopping powerful conjunctions as well. (…possibly why the universe cut her some slack on squares and oppositions..?..)  Sun conjunct Saturn makes Nikki serious and purposeful in speech (Gemini) and, in fact, all forms of communication.

Moon (chart ruler) conjunct Pluto, brings a powerhouse of intense emotional experiences, which in Leo, WILL (Leo motto) be channeled into creative endeavors.

Oddly, the universe pitches me another Venus conjunct Jupiter person this week, YaY !
Not only is the fabulous aspect in the sky above us (in the Grand Earth $$ Trine I talk about here) (and here), I have it (Leo), Smokey Robinson has it (Aries), and so does Nikki (Cancer) - odd that, everyone pops UP all at once …!

Cancer rising with Venus conjunct Jupiter (Jupiter is exalted in Cancer), shows tremendous sensitivity and compassion for others, great depth of generosity and kindness.

Nikki also has Mercury conjunct (out of sign) Uranus, its higher octave, which gives her keen perceptive abilities.

Leo is packed, so Nikki is firey and dramatic, she easily captivates her audiences, rousing emotions and stirring minds with her expressive words and ideas.  She is a Gemini and, yes- she talks with her hands (Gemini rules the hands) as well, so I included this small pic.

I left Lilith for last, because Nikki made such an impression on me when she spoke of courageous women in her life, those women she admired and proudly praised for being leaders in the civil rights movement.  She spoke of heroines that not only inspired her generation, but all generations following.  The women she spoke of included Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, and Coretta Scott King to name a few.

Nikki has Lilith conjunct Venus (females) and it is placed in a very powerful rolling conjunction ~ Lilith in her case is a firey reactive goddess that springs from the creative depths to shine a light on social injustice.
