April 25 Partial Full Moon Eclipse at 5 degrees Scorpio Pluto, Saturn (and North Node)
This eclipse revolves around rooting and digging out your past with a key towards the future. Profit lives and dies in how you view love, money, creativity and relationships. Boho knee-jerk reactions mean the heavens need tempering into the material plane. Off shoot whiz-bang revelations that transform long-standing viewpoints likely. Work it High Qi – as in be kind, fair, highly creative – yet streamlined.
May 9 New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse Taurus at 19 degrees Venus and Mercury (and Mars) What was ours at last eclipse fluctuates :: desires are now haves :: Halves, perhaps ? Most probably if executed well…partnerships are REBIRTHING. Taurean sensibilities are geared towards SHEDDING the PAST. What is New Moon Eclipse Zen ?
BE HERE NOW.
TRANSFORM NOW. Latent comms are highlighted, much unsaid – read the senses ! Third eye Eclipse- intuition, go with your Clairs. Heal your past – quietly, subtly. Four on the floor slowly metamophs into hit the pavement burning tread as the square heats up and the Sagittarius eclipse energy manifests.

May 25 PenumbralFull Moon Lunar Eclipse at 4 degrees Sagittarius
Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius is surely a test of faith, expansion in love, money and philosophical communications with a bent toward healing via fellowship. Ego and work will be hardcore shifts on this one – strange alliances will be your emotional redemption.
Cate is phenomenal, just adore her work . . . and she bronzed her elvish ears.
I am soOo on board with that !
Cate is a Taurus packing 5 retrograde planets: Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto; indicating introverted planetary expression in the younger years while finding the personal compass. Retrograde energies prospect their internal ground – fine tune, hone their craft well into later years, when they blossom outwardly, radiantly.
Cate’s Aries Venus is trine Mars in Sagittarius – Love of passionate FIRE – the urge to explore and express the ethical dilemmas born of the human instinct. Mercury in Gemini (ruling; strong – also rules Virgo) opposes Sag Mars – gathering the info is only pulling back the bowstring for Cate – the possibilities are endless, but she brings the delicate minutiae to each role (Mars square Pluto in Virgo) fleshing out each character believably.
Toro Sun finds the worth of artistic expression through opposition with Neptune in Scorpio. Neptune opposite Sun can mean a suffering, battered ego made stronger – a path of transcendence – soul and spirit wants and needs to both experience and express the depths; wrangling, funneling Mercurial communication through the Virgoan combine of self-improvement is part and parcel of healing others through common expression.
Cate has Uranus 0 degrees in (Venus-ruled) Libra – a boho planet on a springboard Cardinal degree – signifying a sweetly compelling yet surprisingly uppercutting rebel artistic streak.
Explanation and exploration (Mars square Ura/Jup/Plu) of human frailty reveals itself through an artistic earthbound lesson – the shades and shifts of human ethics.Cate’s artwork is passionate, courageous, surprisingly bold yet brilliantly understated.
The Lady of Light, The Lady of the Wood.
The Lady of Light bears the ring, Nenya, also known as the Ring of Adamant, the Ring of Water, which was made in the Second Age, along with the other two Elven Rings,Naryaand Vilya. Nenya is not normally visible; Frodo can see it by virtue of being a Ring-bearer, Sam tells Galadriel he only “saw a star through your fingers.”
Nenya’s power waspreservation, protection, and concealment from evil.
Neptune much ? Water. Concealment. Preservation of life, nature. High qi magick, spirituality.
Such is the longing of Pisces . . .gazing anywhere anyplace and anywhen . . . feeling the oceans of life, adrift and ever feeling.
Confinement. Buddhist non-attachment or barnacles encrusted. ?
To wear a ring of power is to be alone.
I have them (Venus Neptuner) squared, in my natal.
The present energy – conjunct is sweet – gifty. (rather than grifty)
The balance is so delicate – always – it requires / re-wires finesse. Experience is the best teacher.

Felix Baumgartneris 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 aboutone kilometer in three secondsor approximatelyone 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 progresshere.
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.(wiki)
This oughta be good – I am staying tuned to this one ! peace out peeps gneissmoonastrology.net
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. O&O
Leonardo da Vinci was an amazing Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. and that is just scratching the surface…
He conceptualized a helicopter, a tank, concentrated solar power, a calculator, the double hull and outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics, and drew one of the first scientific drawings of a fetus in utero. (wiki)
Taurus Sun with Toro Venus in applying trine to Neptune in Libra at MC, genius creative expression ! Sagittarius rising – expressive and expansive – Jupiter is in Pisces 3rd of learning conjunct Moon.
Aquarius Mars trine Saturn exalted in Libra 10th: Leonardo was an idea machine – invent, conceptualize, research, sketch, design and build futuristic machinery.
The illustration below seemed appropriate for the Uranus, Pluto, Venus T-square.
Freaky drawing of coffin contraption with gyroscope ! ? Dunno, is weird and fascinating whatever it is.
Eighth house Pluto and Uranus – highly observant – he learned anatomy in detail through dissecting cadavers (Venus quintile Pluto). He drew detailed bone studies, and the pregnancy drawing you see above, as well as detailed drawings of architecture, water devices, animals, faces of rage, deformities, and machines of his own design.
Saturn in 10 wants to know how everything works, Neptune at MC absorbs the world like a sponge. Neptune and Saturn in 10 are both opposite Aries Mercury in 4. Mercury trines Leo Pluto – he certainly changed the world through creative expression.
Curiously, most of Leonardo’s writings are in mirror-image cursive, perhaps it was easier because he was left-handed, or maybe it was for reasons of secrecy, perhaps both, no one knows.
As you can see, his drawings and sketches were extremely detailed and highly researched – Virgo precision at MC and Aries Mercury in trine to Pluto in Leo.
The animation above delineates the sacred geometry of the golden rectangle, which is more easily seen in colored portions below. Da Vinci and others (including the architect Palladio) helped to revive this knowledge of sacred geometry and its application after the so-called “Dark Ages.”
Apart from the monks in Ireland, most of the older knowledge was preserved by Arabic culture that translated older Greek and Roman works into Arabic. These works were retranslated back into Latin and other European languages by scholars working in cross-cultural universities in renaissance Spain.
You can see above the geometry da Vinci applied to sketching human faces. Obviously mirror image writing and building with polarities (Uranus sextile Venus in 6th) appealed with Mars in Aquarius in trine to Saturn in the tenth of achievement.
This mathematical precision (sacred geometry) is applied to Mona Lisa below, I am sure there is another for the Last Supper floating around as well. I will look, pop into comments.
Which brings me to the point of this post.
Mercury is numbers, counting, perceptions.
Saturn is mathematics.
(traditional ruler of the fixed sign Aquarius)
is form and matter – the building blocks – earth plane..
Uranus is the higher octave of numbers, counting and perceptions.
Uranus is spirals.
The geometric electrical energy grid that connects all life on earth.
Which leads me to believe Uranus rules sacred geometry as well as Saturn.
Thoughts . . .?
A fun morph.
Leonardo isasteroid 3000.
Da Vinci has it exact conjunct North Node in Capricorn.
Consider Leonardo your renaissance point !
Currently Leonardo is at 10 Cancer.
Dark Moon in Cancer is at 10 degrees as I write this ! Interesting it is dovetailing into the renaissance T- Square Action, yes ?
Venus will soon follow to conjunct – she is at 6 Cancer.
Just in case I haven’t pitched you enough science yet…

to chew on awhile – here’s a porterhouse steak, pack a blade – it’s a biggie !
Hello everyone My vinyl has a front row seat since I ditched the search for the holy grail of ipod decks. Haha don’t worry, we’re not goin’ there. I am spinning the Red Rocks show, ’bout wore it right out in highschool…I was dating a Sagittarius then, but we’re not gonna go there either. nope. Just know I have sworn off ’em for life.
May I introducePaul David Hewson, better known as Bono.
I knew he was Toro, but I took another look, a closer look.
WoW – a kite, of course (an on target aspect for power and focused creativity), Moon Neptune conjunction in Scorpio (family man, quiet and deeply sensitive towards the public, wants to heal – North Node and Chiron in Virgo the public servant adds to this) as the apex opposite Sun, Mercury, Venus conjunction.
Obviously a very powerful singer (Taurus rules the throat, Venus rules Toro) Bono is a man whose very nickname means ‘good voice’ in latin – Bono Vox is an alteration of Bonavox.
Jupiter and Pluto sextile his Moon Neptune conjunction. Pluto is very well aspected making him a powerful provoker of positive change. Jupiter in Capricorn uses its powerful position in life in philosophical ways in order to benefit others. It is an expansive social responsiblity aspect. I gotta mention again how much I love this Sag/Cap energy – idealism & expansion coupled with restraint.
Mars in the last degree of Pisces is also a very powerful signature of someone who wants to activate large-scale healing. Saturn rules Capricorn, is placed strongly here in trine to his Taurus stellium – Bono is obviously a hard worker who feels a huge responsibility to communicate love and fairness world-wide. He steps up to the plate to do so again and again, using his fame for betterment of the world. (check out wiki for extensive list)
Bono has Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto retrograde, he’s only gonna get better with age – awesome – I really liked him at 23, lol. Speaking of which, his birthdate reduces to 22, a master number; it signals a Master Builder with idealistic creativity put forth in grand manifestation, it denotes charisma, precision and balance.
I knew Bono had emergency back surgery for severe compression of the sciatic nerve in May of 2010, which is shown by a very strong Uranus placement in Leo (rules the back) as focal point of a T-square. (Genius creativity aspect) Uranus is square both his Moon Neptune conjunction and also his Taurus stellium. This makes him an independent thinker who blazes a trail of creativity, hope and radical generosity wherever he goes.
I don’t have a specific time for his stress injury while rehearsing, but I checked transits for the week prior to his surgery on May 21, 2010. Bono had tr. Uranus (and Jupiter nearing) conjunct natal Mars exact, tr. Mars conjunct natal Uranus. Pluto was Rx applying to his natal Jupiter, and 9th house rules the sciatic nerves. (Jupiter rules the 9th) His surgery was successful, and Bono was back on stage in August of the same year. Strong in heart, spirit and body, right on !

May I introduce Welsh actor, Mr. John Rhys-Davies.
John, who when young won a place at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, has over his long career appeared in over 70 films, he is known for his voice work, and also numerous television appearances.
Ok, I’ll give it to ya straight from geeky fangirl central. 1. Indiana Jones (Sallah) 2. Star Trek (Voyager, Leonardo da Vinci) 3. Lord of the Rings (Gimli, Treebeard) 4. Dune (Noree Moneo) Aside from the fact that he is a very sweet man, these are 4 sci-fi action-adventure flicks I adore – that pretty much seals the deal for me. John is one superfly Taurus !
John is a Taurus Sun, Mercury, and Venus. Taurus is a dependable, hard worker and can easily find the zen in any situation. Venus rules Taurus and is well placed here in the sign it rules – conjunct Mercury it not only gives a pleasant, courteous manner of speaking but also his deep rich voice, for Taurus rules the throat. Mercury leads the Sun in the chart giving John an added kick of Mercurial communication in the house of where he ‘shines’.
This conjunction of personal planets is square Pluto in Leo (the sign of creativity) giving depth (Pluto) to both his artwork (Venus) and his speaking voice. Cancer Mars can be moody, but sextile Sun it steadies (fluctuating Moon rules Cancer) Mars and helps give his voice power as well as enriching sensitivity towards others with Sun in steady Taurus.
John has North Node conjunct Pluto in dramatic Leo – this signals a life path in the arts and being in the spotlight. Pluto conjunct North Node means his destiny is to be a catalyst in this life – Pluto is the planet of the journey of transformation through loss, death and re-birth, literally and metaphorically. In order to create, a great artist needs a deep well to tap for inspiration and John has got it. He is deeply inspired by others and he inspires others as well, Pluto knows no other way but intensity.
Pluto contacts all his personal planets (closer to Sun, move faster, they are felt more readily in our lives) but Mars. Pluto is also sextile Libra Moon which is an opportunity to grow through women (Venus rules Libra, both Moon and Venus represent women) and enrich the creative process (Pluto sextile Libra Neptune as well- rules inspired art) through using the intensity of Plutonic experiences to create dramatic art.
Moon conjunct Neptune in Libra is a fine placement for artists as Moon represents feelings; Neptune inspires creative daydream states of reverie – and Libra is a Venus (cultivated art) ruled house. This conjunction is trine Pluto, so again artwork created from a wellspring of life experience.
Libra Moon and Neptune are trine Uranus in Gemini which means intuition is very strong and communication quick and restless. Uranus is intuition, the higher octave of Mercury (which rules Gemini) meaning John is a quick thinker who likes to keep ideas and conversation flowing. Saturn (time, patience) placed in Gemini gives a steady nature to speech and study, though in square to Neptune it can signal a need for disciplined, practical, constructive thought surrounding daydreaming and the creative process.
John has Jupiter in Leo which gives him stage (Leo rules the stage) presence, but also expands the vocal capabilities of the Taurus conjunction by square. This can also mean a love of talking and a need to listen or simply take care to guard from hasty speech from self or others. Eating right to stay heart healthy, is important, for a Leo (rules the heart) Jupiter can expand what it contacts and it is in square or compromise with indulgent Sun (Sun rules Leo) in Taurus. (Taurus rules the senses, likes to enjoy food and drink.)
John has Mars quintile (spiritual gift / talent) Neptune (rules film) which gives him an edge on artistic expression with the outgoing action planet Mars working in tandem with mystical, spiritual, artistic, Libra Neptune. Leo Jupiter quintile Gemini Uranus indicates a booming voice (Mercury rules Gemini, and Jupiter squares Mercury too) and a love for innovative, expansive ideas. John taught (Jupiter and Mercury rule teaching) at Watton County Secondary School in Norfolk, where his students likely found him a powerful, innovative teacher.
Also, I was curious to investigate the skin sensitivity, as I also have sensitive skin.
John broke out terribly to the prosthetics used in Lord of the Rings, sometimes so much his eyes would swell shut. Poor guy ~ that’s dedication !
So here are the deets: Saturn rules skin, Aquarius sensitive skin. John has Saturn square (internal tension, conflict) sensitive Neptune in Libra (make – up, cosmetics). This Gemini (rules writing) Saturn (rules time, permanence and along with Mars, tattoos) is square his Moon and Neptune in beautiful balanced Libra, and I am sure at the end of filming, the last thing he wanted was more skin irritation.
Thank you John, I look forward to seeing more of your work… Aa’ menealle nauva calen ar’ malta
