Full Moon 25 degrees Taurus
10:16am CST, USA

Virgo going going gone ! 
Mars approaches my natal Pluto/Ura/29 Sun stellium + I am TOTALLY Virgo-ing out.

Yes this is a primo Full Toro Moon and with apologies for the slowing in posts, I am working out the kinks at home. I am having my family over for the grateful day for the first time in 10 years, cleaning like a fiend, a bazillion and one things to do.  Moon passed my natal Toro moon, and grows to full in my 4th aka house of home trine plenty of neat freak in 9Digging in + powered by 3 extended version director’s cuts of LotR of course.  I am soon off to drag in some wood in for TTT while I string up lights & some Star Trek ships.  YaY !

Sun is in Scorpio opposing Toro Full Moon – check where these signs land in your chart and apply the principle of balance between the house of desire (Scorpio) and the house of have (Taurus). Houses here.

Also of most fantastical groovy note is >>>>

Capricorn Pluto conjunct Venus and asteroid TARDIS time/love & regeneration.

Forgemaster Hephaestus is conjunct Chiron as it goes direct in Pisces – craftsmanship, skill in re-creating your fulcrum – that which delineates hurt from health.  Being versatile – in both communication and learning leads to understanding and balance between differing points of view.

Happy full moon all, I am off, but not before popping in this groovy tracking map of comet ISON.  Here.  Check it out – is wicked cool !  Also see pic in my twitter feed, plus star chart here for skygawkers.

may the force be with you

Hephaestus, God of Blacksmiths : violscraper

A client I just finished a reading for is, as she put it, ‘knee-deep’ into studying astrology now…I loOove it…saw it coming  when I read for her.
Strong Uranus placements – Uranus rules astrology and curiosity.

For those of you who don’t know much, and want to follow along, go over to astrodienst and enter your deets ~  it’s free ~ and trust me, you will learn much by following along and applying planetary energies and current transits to your own natal chart.

I have written of the Plutonian forge many times.  Hearth Forge & Hammer (click).
Fire and ice.
Heat, Hammer & Cool.
Pluto rules volcanoes; Uranus, volcanic eruptions.

These energies (Uranus and Pluto) are in square (obstacle, internal work, forced change) now with Pluto in Capricorn moving retrograde at 9 ’30 degrees; Uranus in Aries at 6 ’21 moving direct, the first exact square hit will be on June 24th.

You are feeling it in your chart…in your life.
I know you are ~ we all are under the same sky.

I keep seeing the Angel of Time, the reconciler.


Feet in two worlds – actually 3.
Water or emotional life, Earth or material world matters and the sigil is Fire of Spirit born unto earth matter.

Time heals.
Blending and working the worlds into balance.

Heat, Hammer & Cool.

Pluto is churning in Capricorn going retrograde; erupting and morphing the past, authority and work and career (Capricorn rules all these things).

Pluto will be doing the same in the opposite house, Cancer where Pluto demands compromise with another in your life.  Cancer rules home, family and gut instincts and feelings.

Pluto works out inner tension through a square to Libra – relationships, equality, art and beauty – how to find balance in life.

Pluto also squares Aries, the competitive self, instincts, early childhood – the I Want It NOW house !   The RAM is dragging Capricorn into the future and the RAM doesn’t look back.
You may be wondering why I put Hephaestus, God of Blacksmiths (asteroid 2212) at the top of the page, yet I haven’t mentioned him yet.  This is the cool weird thing about astrology folks…the planets really do give all the info you need, but the asteroids flesh out the bones…love that !

Hephaestus is the god of blacksmithing ~ the volcanic fires of the forge.

He was born lame and crippled into Olympus, rejected and cast out by his mother Hera. Rescued by sea nymphs, he grew to be a cunning craftsman.  Despite his ejection from Mount Olympus, Hephaestus crafted many objects for the gods such as thunderbolts for Zeus, arrows for Apollo and a shield for Athena.  He was the only Olympian said to have returned to Olympus after being exiled.

The asteroid Hephaestus will signal forgiveness, craft, cunning and skill in your natal chart.  It is the place where you blaze a trail and rise to create your destiny – despite rejection – despite emotional and physical difficulties.

It is where your life is forged, hammered and remade.

Look to what it aspects and see what the forge holds for you…
Conjunctions are power operating together, trines easy energy flow, squares inner battles, and oppositions indicate compromise with another.

During the Occultation of Venus (click) Hephaestus will be at 6 ’15 Gemini, sextile Uranus and trine mid-heaven.
(Some only read conjunctions, but I like to read the astrological gumbo…)
During the first exact square of Uranus, Pluto – Hephaestus will be conjunct Venus.

These are forged objects from my home.  An old friend made them…the keychain I have carried since the day it was given to me.  Pluto, forging, craft and forgiveness are all major in my life – Pluto aspects both luminaries, Neptune most highly aspected.

Imagine my surprise when I saw my natal Hephaestus is not only quintile Venus, but it lives at 16 degrees Gemini, the exact degree of the upcoming Occultation of Venus.
