May I introduce Billy Boyd.
Billy is a not only a multi-Virgo with my heart up his sleeve, Billy is a Virgo wonderment. 
My Virgo stellium looks like chump change next to his.  Dig it !

Virgo
Sun 4
Jupiter 13
Pluto 22
Mercury 22
Venus 23
Uranus 28

Now THAT is a stellium.

Billy ScotsSix Virgo Planets, Mars in Leo, Saturn Rx in Aries.
Outbound expression of Leo creativity via Mars power trine North Node of Destiny & Chiron Rx in Aries circumscribed by intense intellectual analyzation. + Cheeky !
Goal-enriched, focused, streamlined creativity.

Virgo restraint is brought to a crux by Pluto, Mercury, Venus (22,22,23) respectively; tight triple conjunction, mind you – straight to the chase, he is.  Perceptual shifts ongoing, daily routine reveals sacred patterns, philosophical shifts and psychological breakthroughs revealed via a mind busy with practical matters.

Virgo Pluto, Mercury/Venus are tightly sextile 23 Neptune in Scorpio, leading to much opportunity and ultimately success on stage in theater (Mars, Leo) as well as (Neptune ruled) film and music. Billy has an amazing voice, Beecake is fantastic, see vids in comments.  Well done.

Billy spies appleSaturn Rx as Yod focal point indicates adaptation, improvisation re: elements & modalities in re: to work, identity, intellect and expressing desires.  Points of a Yod see, feel and react differently – integration, co-operation needed; adaptation, improvisation on call.

Saturn Rx is not only in its fall, but also retrograde – which makes the reconfiguration of actions undergo continual reconsideration.  Actions are slowed and internalized while figuring out how to best express them.  Growing older, at which point expressing the planetary energy has been perfected, the energy is delivered outwardly.  (I have Saturn Rx in Aries, as does Thom Yorke.)  Seeking perfection is inherent – streamlined power in progress, editing on hand 24/7.  Aries Saturn as focal point indicates the need to overcompensate, overachieve and cover all the bases prior to action as well as in the process of doing it.

North Node in Aries calls the spirit forth to bushwhack a new trail via impulse & instinct, the emphasis is on self-acceptance rather than seeking accolades through others.  Chiron Rx here is much the same, leading with the spirit of connection, new beginnings, meet/greet/make it neat (fast), move on.

Fire signs (as well as any planets therein) are the cheerleaders of the zodiac; Aries, doubly so – they are the I AM / WE ARE doing it FIRST primal people.  Aries North Node of Destiny, Chiron Rx, Saturn Rx are notable as they are Cardinal – focusing the drive of Billy’s mutable (adaptable) plow.  Mars in Leo is fixed, creative and backing with major powerhouse instinctual energy towards destiny via trine.

Cardinal inspiration, ideas, creativity, exceptionally vibrant healing* are given the reins here especially during fire sign transits. *For those who are of the *Chiron rules Virgo crowd; Sun & Chiron are in tandem giving and receiving great reception as Sun is exalted in Aries.

Saturn prominent not only indicates restriction, but also older people, authority figures, ambitions a long-standing career and a love of work.  Billy lost his parents at a very young age and was raised by his grandmother.  Pluto, Mercury 22; Venus 23 Virgo indicates a woman stepping into his life to undertake personal responsibilities while he was young during a major life transition. (Pluto, death, transformation; Mercury, youth; Venus female; Virgo service to others.)  As a comparison, I’ll pop in my own deets: I’m Saturn ruled (in 3, siblings) all bros & sis are over 12 + years older than me.

Note current astro transits: Transiting Capricorn Pluto; Venus direct trine Virgo Jupiter (beneficial, though transformative change via art, communications, balance); Jupiter Rx sextile Virgo Jupiter (opportunity expansion); as well as transiting Uranus conjunct North Node of Destiny.  Uranus rules astrology…and you, my friend, are up to bat this time.  Welcome.

There are no mistakes and it’s never boring on the edge of imagination, which is only pure spirit out having a bit of fun.
Wavy Gravy

Welcome to 2013 !
Gotta laugh, life is comical.
 I was tweaking one teeny thing in drop down menu and the whole thing went pfft.  Transit Pluto square (Uranus and) natal Saturn in Aries 3rd – techno snafu gutted it.
Was making changes anyway – this just speeds things up a bit.
::::::::::::::::::::::::

Mercury in Capricorn coming to conjunct Pluto and Sun all square Uranus in Aries.
 Moon is in late Leo on her way to Virgo, as she moves into Virgo – she will trine all of the above, one after another.

Tuesday January 1
Moon into Virgo
11:35pm CST, USA

Aquarius Mars trines Jupiter Rx in Gemini – both sextile Uranus Aries.  Headspace is going to be busy – ideas rushing in – full of dualities and possibilities – Jupiter opens new horizons in the brainpan.

Saturn in Scorp streamlines – squeezes – she digs, delves and uses all that swampy gunk, all the Plutonic trash to make treasure. 
Scorp rids; Cap builds – both take time, fyi…
 Saturn and Pluto aren’t exactly Ferrari’s of the zodiac, so be patient with yourself.

Think of Saturn in Scorp as your diamond / oil transit. 

Mind your mines as Jupes Rx is still a stress point with Saturn and Pluto.
Saturn in Scorp is all about releasing what is no longer of USE.
Write it down & burn it up if you have to – get rid of what mentally ails / fails you.

We’ll be getting lots of support from earth to earth – Virgo Moon hits the ground running. Thoughts and feelings gain traction on the material plane, slow and steady processing is progressing, stay positive.

Aries / Libra will be growth central – actions imminent !
Cancer peeps pop up making you aware of actions you need to take.

Mars squares Saturn : time to slow cook the gumbo. 
You KNOW what you DESIRE – and you want it now ?!? lol. yeah, I get that.

Lesson of Jupiter Rx point of Yod ?
Trusting the Finger of the ONE God / Goddess.

The universe works with you . . . critical information will download as it is meant to, precisely on time, as the gears of the cosmic wheel shift.
Trust it.

Gayatri

Saturn sextiles Pluto – mutual reception – each in each others ruling house, they are for all intents and purposes working very well together, they have a strong energetic connection, like a psychic linkage.

Your Scorpio (Saturn) and Capricorn (Pluto) houses are where immense growth is possible – USE what you HAVE, follow your INSTINCTS, what you DESIRE is within reach.  This is one of many messages this Cancer Full Moon is delivering. more here

Jupiter Rx is the apex of a Yod – it is quincunx both Saturn and Pluto, both of which sextile each other.  Changes will be in progress through the strain on energies of Jupiter Rx in Gemini.  Visionary thinking turned inward.  Faith and thoughts of bonds expressed quietly, unconventionally.  Gemini is dual, seeing both sides of ethical dilemmas is likely.

How and what do you believe ?
How do you approach ceremony ? committment ?
What are your personal truths ?  your deal breakers ?

Ye olde traditional ways of SEEing your houses of Scorpio and Capricorn may be misleading – get innovative, be clever, flirt with ideas – choose carefully what to reveal, what to teach, what bridges to build and to whom. 

Who or what are your allies ?  your totems ?
Definition of totem: an object (as an animal or plant) serving as the emblem of a family or clan and often as a reminder of its ancestry; also: a usually carved or painted representation of such an object

Very Full Cancer Moon, yes ? 
Family, roots and ancestors, earth allies.

Mercury (in Sagittarius) and Jupiter Rx (in Gemini) are also in mutual reception, feeling a strong energetic connection, a psychic link.  Revolutionary thinking is expansive, yet also internalized.

I wrote before, this lunation calls for a separation of hopes, a choice of some kind.
Ditch one thing, keep another – the duality of Gem and Sag – coupled with the loss inherent to Pluto, and the building inherent to Saturn. 
::::::::::::::::
 With this in mind, I have been cleaning, getting rid of the material dross (Saturn sextile Pluto) in my home and in my life.  Pluto has been dredging up oodles of Martian personality traits – particularly through dealings with others (Pluto in my first – opposite seventh).
 Life is made for lessons, and I am getting them in spades – Matrix downloads – one right after another. Teachers are coming out of the woodwork – reflecting – what I don’t want to be, and also what I am striving for.  

Mirrors are ruled by Moon and Mercury – fitting for the current astro.
A good friend (a Sagittarius) pointed this out to me, so I share this with everyone in hopes we all can enter a more positive loving future, together.

Wrote about Gayatri Mantra here after I saw MOMIX botanica. Two similar translations are offered there, if you are an expert in Sanskrit and can do better, by all means, please do so.

With love, even the rocks will open.

the SONIC

Felix Baumgartner is an Austrian skydiver and a BASE jumper. He is renowned for the particularly dangerous nature of the stunts he has performed during his career. Baumgartner’s current project is Red Bull Stratos, where he plans to jump to Earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere.

Baumgartner has been working with a team of scientists to attempt the highest sky-dive on record. The project, which is scheduled see Baumgartner jump 120,000 ft – or 36,600 miles – from a helium balloon, before free falling then parachuting to Earth.
::::::::::::::

If successful, Baumgartner will break the sound barrier on his descent, becoming the first human to do so without vehicular power.

fyi: The speed of sound is the distance travelled during a unit of time by a sound wave propagating through an elastic medium. In dry air at 20 °C (68 °F), the speed of sound is 343.2 metres per second (1,126 ft/s). This is 1,236 kilometres per hour (768 mph), or about one kilometer in three seconds or approximately one mile in five seconds.  Holy %*$&^%# that’s fast !

A successful jump will also result in Baumgartner breaking three more world records—the highest manned balloon flight, the highest altitude jump, and the longest time in free fall. The free fall (until the parachute is pulled) is expected to last between five and six minutes, with total jump (until contact is made with the ground) expected to last approximately ten minutes.

The jump is currently postponed after the scheduled launch on October 9, 2012 was aborted due to “gusty winds”.
Delayed twice -
The next window for launch begins on 14 October.  
::::::

Launch progress here.


Taurus Sun, Gemini Moon.
 Uranus Rx at 0 degrees Libra, a sensitive Cardinal degree- making Uranus even more hot to trot to upset the apple cart.

Saturn at 28 Aries (decan of Jupiter) is the apex or finger of god in a Yod.

Saturn is quincunx Virgo Jupiter and zero degree Uranus in Libra – in addition to Neptune Rx in late Scorpio.  The sextile is between Neptune :::: Uranus, and his Jupiter Pluto conjunction in late Virgo.  A quincunx requires adaptation and improvisation  – Saturn is taking all the heat of the outer planet heavy hitters !

Neptune rules sky, Saturn rules falling (diving).  As the apex of the Yod –  Saturn needs release – intense Neptune / Uranus, Jupiter release.
His drug of choice is a heady weird falling rush :: far – out ( his Mars is in Sagittarius in trine to Venus in Aries: fire to fire WoOo HoOo) power sports. ::  With Saturn in a house ruled by Mars on the decan of Jupiter- his history making jumps are action packed and they have got to BE BIG !

:::::
So I am thinking, a sonic boom happens when the sound barrier is broken - won’t he nearly go deaf ?  So I had to look up sonic boom.  Sound waves travel behind the object.

It is a common misconception that only “one” boom is generated during the subsonic to supersonic transition, rather, the boom is continuous along the boom carpet for the entire supersonic flight.
As a former Concorde pilot puts it, “You don’t actually hear anything on board. All we see is the pressure wave moving down the aeroplane – it gives an indication on the instruments. And that’s what we see around Mach 1. But we don’t hear the sonic boom or anything like that. That’s rather like the wake of ship – it’s behind us.

This oughta be good – I am staying tuned to this one !
peace out peeps

Note: When I create solar charts ( when an exact birth time is unavailable ) I use Noon.
 I split the difference equally – it tends to be more accurate for Moon placement.  Some astrologers use what is called a sunrise chart with Sun rising in the first house.

If Felix was born between midnight and 7:30am he would be a 29 degree Aries – if born after 7:30am (6:30am UT) he is a 0 degree Taurus.
In short : there is a 7 hour window in which he is 29 Aries; a 17 hour window in which Felix is 0 degree Taurus.
Uranus is at 0 degrees Libra regardless what time of day it is on 4/20/69.
