Happy Full Aquarius Moon – opposite Leo Sun
whiskerpurrs from chez luna
Let me tell you I have loved Loved LOVED Janet McTeer since Tumbleweeds ! Then came Songcatcher, a tale full of backwoods bluegrass and a teacher hellbent on documenting the culture and music of hill people. A great concept, well done. I know everything Janet does will be top notch.
Pictured above is Glenn Close with Janet (right) – I recently watched Albert Nobbs and loved it ! It’s a great story of poor 19th century Irish women making their way in the world under difficult circumstances. If you haven’t seen it, do – these women are fabulous !
Janet is a Leo Sun, Gemini Moon.
Janet has Sun, Mercury (not conjunct) with Uranus conjunct North Node all in Leo.
Hello ! Born for the camera, and the camera loves her. She is versatile with her Gem Moon, it sextiles Mercury making her a chameleon of sorts. She has this lovely underlying earthy Saturnian vibe (in Capricorn, it rules) with a kick of unusual visionary perception – Jupiter in Aquarius – that is just flat – out fun and quirky !
Janet has the octaves of artistic creativity trine one another – Cancer Venus trines Scorpio Neptune. Neptune (rules inspired creativity and film) is also the focal planet of a T- Square with Mercury and Jupiter – Scorps don’t miss a thing. Those planets are all fixed and that means building. She is just so fun to watch – minute details (Jupiter and Saturn trine Mars in Virgo) that give each character such depth and complexity unfold with such grace.
Glenn Close is obviously also fabulous, with credits such as The Big Chill, Fatal Attraction, and Dangerous Liasons (my personal favorite).
Glenn is a Pisces Sun, Aquarius Moon, with Leo rising. She has 8th house Pisces Mercury conjunct Mars both square Uranus in Gemini on the 11th. That one is edgy – whipsmart and otherworldly perceptive, she can play creepy very well.
Glenn has an Grand Air trine with 11th house Uranus in Gemini, 3rd house Neptune in Libra, and Venus conjunct Moon in Aquarius 7th. Those are stellar intuitive planets and placements for artistic ability and depth of communicating the soulful underbelly of human nature.
She also has a Grand Trine (out of sign) with Scorpio Jupiter, Pisces Sun and Saturn in Leo. Pluto and Saturn are rising in the dragon hours, giving the traits of unpredictability, ambition, strong opinions, being outspoken as well as lucky. Pluto is conjunct the ASC from the 12th and opposes Venus in the 7th – her artwork needs to reveal and transform – always. She is one intense lady who has created a fabulous body of work.
Some quickie synastry between Janet and Glenn:
Janet’s Sun is conjunct Glenn’s Pluto.
Janet’s Mercury is conjunct Glenn’s Saturn, both of which trine Glenn’s Sun.
Janet’s Neptune is conjunct Glenn’s Chiron, both of which trine Glenn’s Mercury / Mars conjunction.
Janet’s Moon is conjunct Glenn’s North Node, both of which trine Glenn’s Neptune.
Amazing work ladies ! Thank you.

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.

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.
Jo is radiant in the photo above, yes ?
Lovely, generous Leo Jo Rowling, is no longer in the Forbes billionaire club.
It is estimated she has given $160 million to charities, supporting organizations linked to poverty, multiple sclerosis (her mother suffered from MS), children’s welfare and illiteracy. She has written 3 books that have raised almost $30 million for charities as well.
Hi qi Leos (Sun rules) positively radiate warmth, charisma, and generosity.
They are creative and friendly with a kind heart (Leo rules).
Jo is obviously brilliantly creative, and I had to have a look at her chart.
This is a solar chart, so the planets in signs are correct, the houses may likely change.
Jo is a life path 5, which represents change, freedom and artistic expression.
Mega Virgo stellium !
A giant rolling conjunction: Moon, Pluto, Uranus, Venus all in Virgo; Mercury conjunct at 29 (culmination degree) Leo. I am soOo not surprised by the extensive notes and outlines she wrote in preparation for the Harry Potter series. Virgos love their organization and notes ! I would love to see them, wouldn’t you..?
The whole series of books is so rich with vivid detail and imagination brought to life in the written word. She has Saturn Rx the planet of weaving and building in the sign of Pisces the mystical, inspired artist opposite all of the above except Mercury – although, I’m calling it opposite by transference of light.
Saturn is also conjunct Chiron the philosopher, teacher and healer. Interesting as Jupiter is oriental in her chart bringing a life of exploration, foreign travels, and higher education into sharp focus ( Yes, I just called Jupiter in Gemini focused.) especially with the addition of North Node of Destiny present in Gemini as well.
Jupiter is the focal point of a massive T- Square involving Saturn – Moon, Pluto, and Uranus opposite. Jupiter in Gemini is hopeful, expansive with a love of grandiose ideas, reading, writing – basically communicating in some form or fashion 24/7.
It is a high-octane mentally alert and cerebrally dexterous house on steroids that loves to explore the universe for new ideas. I can only imagine the difficulty she experienced reining in all the nebulous Pisces and distractions of Gemini to create works that have sold over 400 million copies and are the world’s best selling series of books.
Jupiter rules teachers and universities (I always saw Hogwarts as a university, I don’t care how old Harry, Hermione and Ron were, that’s how I imagined it.) and think of how many kids picked up the books to read. Even kids that really didn’t like to read were reading them. That’s amazingly cool. J.K. Rowling is a teacher of wizards and witches the world over.
Her Sun square Neptune in Scorpio (loss of will, hope), and Saturn in opposition to all that Mercury-ruled Virgo have been troublesome for her. Moon conjunct Pluto and Jo lost her mother just as she began writing about Harry, her mother never knew of her success. Jo has suffered from debilitating depression, and contemplated suicide, a condition which inspired the soul-sucking dementors. How sad when the Leo light dims…read her story (from wiki) below:
Seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as “the biggest failure I knew.” Her marriage had failed, she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating:
Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
– Harvard commencement address, 2008.
When Jo began to work her Mars in Venus (art) ruled Libra trine Jupiter, as well as Saturn trine Neptune in Scorpio – it alleviated the stress of the oppositions and squares in her chart. Her Neptune (imagination) is sextile Moon, Uranus and Pluto in Mercury ruled (writing) Virgo. She also has a lovely Venus quintile Neptune which is a special talent for expressing the Scorpionic mystical arts through writing.
Thank you Jo, for hanging in there and gifting us your brilliant world of magic ~
Ps. I vote Capricorn rising. You ?
*mischief managed *
Ta DA Leos !
O dot has rolled out the red hot carpet for the big cats ! Can’t help but look, they shine like the sun ! They are effortlessly regal…eyes giving the slow perusal before prowling after you. RAWR ! I have Leo on my 8th house, so I’m gonna serve up an astro story sexy, scruffy-style… *lick*
Here we have mega-Leo, Daniel : Leo Sun conjunct Mercury – Venus conjunct Mars <- ok, that’s a doozy… tres, tres sexy Leo, yes..?! He’s gotta lotta love in that heart of his. Best yet, he’s a humble reserved Leo (hey~ anything’s possible) with Uranus, Saturn and Neptune conjunct in Capricorn. Unusual career in film and stage ? Bingo ! Who to better embody a courageous, noble hero who saves the world…?
Well….how about this sexy man who also saves the world, but from the opposite side of the wheel..?!
Here we have mega-Aquarian, Elijah. Aquarius Sun, with Mercury conjunct Mars (both square to Uranus). I’m going with Scorpio rising here (eyelids are sleepy, sexy). Also Scorp rising puts Uranus (the unusual) on the 29th culmination degree of the first house which rules the eyes – and Elijah is well-known for his mesmerizing blue eyes.
Elijah is definitely a communicator with so much air. Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, plus being conjunct Mars gives it an extra kick. Expansive Jupiter Rx is conjunct Saturn Rx in Libra the sign of art, beauty and balance; and Saturn Rx is exalted here – meaning he will only get better as he gets older and his retrogrades kick in.
Obviously he is handsome, artistic and despite growing up in Hollyweird, he is relatively normal – but weird enough to fascinate. (Compliment !) He’s a really hard worker (Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Libra) who actually enjoys it (Venus in Capricorn). He respects the art of time honored crafts and traditions and has grown up learning from mentors in the business; both film and music. (Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Libra)
I gotta pop in some Neptune music trivia on this one ~> Elijah is a total music freak; seriously a walking encyclopedia of music of all genres. He owns his own record company named Simian Records; he has directed, filmed, and appeared in many music videos. Also a huge photography aficionado, he has lucky, expansive Jupiter -quintile (spiritual gifts)- Neptune, which rules not only film, but also music.
OK, here’s the deal…Leos and Aquarians are on the same wavelength, but on opposite sides of the wheel from each other.
Leo motto: I WILL
Aquarians motto: I KNOW.
Both signs are yang; or expressive, direct and outgoing.
Leos have an insular pride; Aquarians an Earth pride of humankind.
Leos tend to be friendly; Aquarians, more stand-offish.
Leos love to be admired; Aquarians really don’t give a rat’s ass.
Leos are group; Aquarians, wild, more solitary.
Both signs are very caring, but show it in different ways.
Leos are fire in the belly; Aquarians are lighting flashes of intuition, tres cerebral.
Now onto my story…
Daniel and Elijah resemble each other; each has saved the world in blockbuster films, should be totally recognizable; yet they are still mistaken for one another on the street. I have read this story more than once; cannot give you the source; but if you dig, you’ll find it in television interviews and/or print. Found it !
Elijah is riding in an elevator…doors open… guy gets on—keeps staring… searching inner data banks for recognition–then aha ! ‘I’ve got it, you’re Harry Potter !‘ Elijah’s response: “Nope.‘ Guy quizzically shakes head…both resume riding in silence staring at the numbers lighting up as floors ascend… *
Daniel is approached by a man: “Dude, I loved Lord of the Rings”…Daniel graciously says, “Thanks !’ signs autograph Elijah Wood because he doesn’t have the heart to tell him otherwise.
…and that folks, is how you tell a Leo from an Aquarian !
*Please note: Elijah is ranked # 7 in best Hollywood autograph signers, he is kind and patient with his fans, the above is only one. story. out of many many good ones.
Bonus round :
Did I mention I have Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo?
