Translating cosmic nebuli

John Pitre 

I am dissolving into the Neptune retrograde, I can feel it.  Staycation has only heightened my need to hermit.  It is not only the Neptunian fog of my most highly aspected planet rolling in, but also everything else at high noon (with the exception of Sun – doesn’t retrograde) in my natal chart is retrograde. 

I am spending time squirreled away in my home pocket studying.  My collection of papers, pamphlets, guides and information are finding homes.  I am gearing up for many long hauls through the late nights of work into my future – laying tracks over the mountain, if you will.  Earth signs more than any other like to be prepared…practice, practical, perfection.

Are you working the Neptune Rx trine Saturn ?  I called Neptune trine Saturn the manifestation aspect and it is true.  The inspirational spirit of Neptunian creations are more easily made manifest into physical form on the material plane.  The cosmic nebuli more freely funnels and flows into earthbound translations.

Creative juices are flowing for those with planets in the latter degrees of Aquarius and first 3 or so degrees of Pisces, the last degrees of Libra and first of Scorpio by trine.

Planets in the last degrees of Leo are feeling a need to compromise with another.
 Neptuning is in progress…

Neptune is squaring the early degrees of Sagittarius, including North Node.  Internal friction causes action, so trust the process, show up and that Neptune sextile Pluto Rx will open doors….though it may not be the door you are currently looking at.

July 22, 5:01am CST, USA
Sun into Leo

Sun into Leo – ta da ! – will vibe up the fire of Mercury Rx and both trine Uranus Rx, so good news is likely on the way from strange corners – including your inner bells and buzzers – yes indeed – ding – you have mail !

Leo Sun is quintile Libra Mars giving an extra shove to any actions you need to light a fire under, particularly creative endeavors, as Sun rules Leo and is powerfully creative here !  Mercury Rx is quintile Saturn as well, so perhaps a quiet, but productive day is in store.

Entertain yourself ~ Moon is squaring Gemini Venus & Jupes most of the day.  Hint: Virgo moons are great for organization and nitty gritty nitpicky crap, trust me on this one.

Virgo Moon’s square to the benefics in Gemini separates around sunset (8pm) CST, USA.  So relax, loosen up, and play – Monday promises to be quirky and fun !

oh and here is a teeny short movie about another John Pitre work, Ascension.

Manifestation Station

We have a fun weekend in store !
Sun in the last degrees of Cancer brings feelings to a culmination point in that house.
Sun enters Leo Sunday the 22nd, 5:01am CST, USA

Sun will play with fire and join Mercury Rx in Leo.
Uranus Rx in Aries is fire, North Node also in fire – Sagittarius.

Mercury Rx trines Uranus Rx , is quintile Saturn … expect messages from the past, discoveries or radical solutions – especially when you least expect it.  Creative ideas, solutions, actions plans will unfold in front of you with this astro.

Mars trines Venus and Jupiter in Gemini so is it any wonder the chit – chat, even if only inner dialogue is pumped up and on steroids ?   Mars sextiles Mercury, so there is some real creative problem – solving to be found in the quiet moments – brainstorms will erupt ! 

What I mostly want to mention is this :  
Neptune Rx in super fresh Pisces home waters is the dream reality – our earthly link to the cosmos and vice versa.   This is the manifestation aspect – Mars action closes in on Saturn in Libra – which trines Neptune – Manifestation Station… !  

Dream it then BE IT !

Balance is circling & coming in for a landing ….

Make it so.
So mote it be.

blessings & peace

eat trash

Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper. – Francis Bacon

Sun and Mercury conjunct (power operating) communicating humanitarian concerns in rebel Aquarius.  They are forming the focal point in a T-Square between Saturn (responsibilities, the Earth) on 29 degrees (culmination degree) of Libra (balance, fairness), which is opposite (compromise) Moon (public, feelings) coming to conjunct Jupiter (excess) in Taurus (attitudes about luxury), which in turn, square (inner tension) Sun and Mercury. 

Mars Rx in Virgo (re-evaluate civil actions and service) opposite (compromise) Venus (luxury) in Pisces (universality) and Uranus in Aries (full throttle change).

Saturn trine Neptune (build the dream) on 29 degrees of innovative Aquarius.  Pluto (refuse, trash, transmutation) trine excessive Jupiter in the earth sign of Taurus.

You may apply the above to your life (micro) and globally (macro) – – it is the sky above us all.

I just watched a great documentary Dive ! which has won 21 film festival awards worldwide.  The film is part of a growing movement that re-examines the role of food in a society that wastes 1/2 of all that it produces.

Every year in America we throw away 96 billion pounds of food. One half of all food prepared in the US and Europe never gets eaten. The Department of Agriculture estimated in 1996 that recovering just 5 percent of the food that is wasted could feed four million people a day; recovering 25 percent would feed 20 million people. Today we recover less than 2.5 percent. (facts from: Dive !)

North Node of Destiny is in visionary Sagittarius. “Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Gandhi  – – Well done, filmmaker Jeremy Seifert, well done !

Please take 6 minutes to watch this small clip about food waste, and how to help empower change on our Earth.
