SOME SET-UP INFO ON RETROGRADE PLANETS Planets move forward in degrees from 00 degrees 00 minutes 00 seconds . . . to 29 degrees 59 minutes 59 seconds. There are 60 minutes in 1 degree. At 59 minutes 59 seconds, the next second that ticks away fulfills 1 degree. When 30 degrees is satisfied then the planet moves into the next sign at 00 degrees 00 minutes. When the planet Retrogrades it goes backward in degrees. Now come on, a planet never really does move backward, that is just an illusion from a shadow cast on the planet making it appear as though it is moving backward. IT'S NOT REAL FOLKS! It's an illusion but our reaction to it is very real. It's like being at a stop Light and the car next to you moves forward a bit and it makes you feel like you are moving backward, suddenly you panic and hit the brake but you are sitting still. It's weird! Retrograde planets cause us to be 'reactionary' but when you get 'the get' of the illusion, then it's all cool, rose posey and you make progress in your Life. After the Retrograde period, the planet turns Direct and begins to move forward in degrees once again.

If you have been coming to this website long enough, then you know that I do not see Retrogrades as a bad thing. Fearful astrology is stupid and it is trickery from those begging for attention or pandering for business. Those who use astrology fearfully ought to be ashamed of themselves. All Retrograde planets are a period of a 'do-over'. There should be no freak-out-ed-ness in a Retrograde status. Re-trace your steps and make it better and put the brakes on the dramatization. You should be excited about a Retrograde planet because it is essentially the Universe giving you a 'do-over' before you progress forward. You are getting a 1st, 2nd and 3rd chance to make things right during a Retrograde period. A planet moves over a set of degrees (1st time), then it turns Retrograde and goes over those same degrees again (2nd time) and then it turns Direct and moves forward again going over those same degrees again (3rd time). Look at that, the Universe gives you 3 chances to get straight and fly right. Seriously, it doesn't get better than that. Seriously, how nice of the Universe! As a bunch of misfit humans, WE NEED THESE RETROGRADES, so take them when they come and use the Retrograde (do-over) wisely. Retrograde planets are meant to help you back-track, regroup, rewind, rejuvenate and get your life back on track. Retrogrades are basically saying, "Hey you! Yeah, YOU! I'm talkin' to You! Get your freakin' act together!" You see folks, we all need this, so take it!

Breast Cancer Awareness

Until Wednesday, October 8, 2014 we will still be under the 'orb of influence' of the New Moon in Libra that occurred on Wednesday, September 24, 2014. New Moons have an 'orb of influence' of two weeks. A New Moon occurs when the Moon is not illuminated by direct sunlight. Those born under the New Moon are impulsive and emotional, always looking for new opportunities to express their ideas. Those born under the New Moon react from their own subjective viewpoint and enjoy starting new projects by chasing their own personal goals and plans. If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart, I did indicate the phase of the Moon you were born under. New Moons have a strong 'orb of influence' for taking action within two weeks of the New Moons occurrence. Each day that ticks by, the 'orb of influence' of the New Moon weakens but the effects of the action taken will last an entire year.

This is a time of 'new beginnings' under the subject matter of the sign involved, which is Libra. Six months from now we will experience the Full Moon in Libra on April 4, 2015, which will be your 6 month check-up to the 'new beginning' or 'fresh start' that you began under this New Moon in Libra. This New Moon has an 'orb of influence' of two weeks, although the first 5 days of this influence are the most solid and strongest time period. This means these first 5 days of this New Moon are the most important for you to get this energy going. Again, in 6 months, when that Full Moon in Libra appears, you should be wrapping up and putting a nice bow on what you began under this New Moon. After the Full Moon in Libra in on April 4, 2015, the next 6 months will take you to the next New Moon in Libra on October 12, 2015. New Moon, to Full Moon, back to New Moon. Got it? This New Moon in Libra is about re-negotiating, re-engaging and re-establishing committed relationships, marriages, legal unions, partnerships and joint commitments. If you have not gotten your Compatibility/Synastry Report to see how you and your spouse, mate, significant other or business partner size-up and couple-up according to the planets, this is the perfect time to get the report and start digesting and implementing the rules of your relationship. After all, there will be a 6 Month check-up on this subject matter on April 4, 2015.

The New Moon in Libra signifies a new cycle (new beginning) for partnerships, committed relationships, partnerships, the Love life and beauty. Libra is Aries opposite sign and Libra rules coupling, which 'requires' that we learn how to couple up, partner up and learn how to cooperate with each other. We are always ourselves (as in our 'self') but we are not always (ourselves, as in two of us). It's easier to be a 'me' than a 'we'. Folks, this is the time for us to learn how to be in a relationship and operate as duality. Oh the dance of two is beautiful under the New Moon's influence. The New Moon in Libra is a new cycle (beginning) where relationships are highlighted. It is a time for us, we and our. You know what? THIS DAY should be Valentine's Day.

This New Moon in Libra has absolutely no hard aspects to it, unlike last year where it had a hard opposition aspect to Uranus in Aries creating tension in relationships and break-ups. The New Moon this year in Libra not only has zero hard aspects to it, it has no aspects to it all. If you look at the chart wheel you will see that the Sun and Moon are sitting there conjunct (side by side) with no aspects bouncing off it. It's just we, us and our sitting there holding hands on a park bench with no one else in sight.

IMPORTANT -- New Moon's have the staying power for an entire year simply because the next New Moon in any given Sun Sign will not come around for another year. Sure, there will be another New Moon next month but that one will be in Scorpio, when the Sun is in Scorpio. Right now, the New Moon is in Libra and will not come around again until Monday, October 12, 2015. That's why you have to get your coupling act together NOW. If you are single, then there could not be a better time to set yourself up and work on becoming the person you want to introduce to someone. If you don't have your act together, then you will only attract your own, which will be a reflection of yourself. That means if you don't have your act together, neither will your future partner. Set yourself up all of you singleton's so that you can be the person you want to introduce to your future Mr. or Miss Wonderful. You might even think about joining a dating website. I met my Scorpion King (fiance') on dating website. When you sit behind a computer like I do hours and hours on end typing for hours and hours on end, how else was I going to meet my Mr. Wonderful? Of course I had an advantage of knowing who was perfect for me by checking my own natal chart and he fit perfectly. I met the Scorpion King within two days of joining the dating site and two weeks later we were on vacation in Florida. Four months later we moved in together. The rest is history. So folks, I'm telling you, Astrology works to your advantage when you play by the rules. You can not make up your own rules to fit your chart. You have to follow the rules of your chart. Use this New Moon in Libra to your advantage.

Not only does the New Moon in Libra highlight 'we, us and our' but the current North Node in Libra also focuses on 'we, us and our' and the South Node in Aries focuses on 'me, myself and I'. The North Node is where our cup will runneth over and the South Node is the bottomless pit. In other words, no matter how much energy we pour into the pit, we can not and will not fill it up. But when we pour energy into the North Node our cup will overflow. So there you have it. The North Node is in Libra until November 2015 and the the current New Moon in Libra tells us to focus on 'we, us and our'. The 7th house of Libra rules couplings, partnerships and marriages. When this energy is channeled appropriately, it really 'can be' a freakin-fan-fabulous time to get your coupling act together. If a relationship is already on the skids, if there are secrets and the couple is not doing so well, this could be that time when the relationship ends, leaving a 'new beginning,' which is still a New Moon (new beginning influence).

This New Moon in Libra wants you to collaborate, cooperate and work together. Remember, 'we, us and our'. This is the time to work together 'jointly' to create or produce results that are better than before. For those who are dealing with difficult circumstances you may have to call in a mediator, negotiator, counselor or a therapist to help bring 'we, us and our' into a harmonious union. Think about how the next two paragraphs using the New Moon in Libra can benefit you. Also look to your personal natal chart to see where this New Moon in Libra will affect you personally rather than as an entire population of Cancer's.

For all Cancer's the New Moon is shining its 'we, us and our' relationship, coupling-up and partnership rays on your 'natural ruling' 4th house of home and family. This Libra Moon is very comfortable here for you. It describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. This house also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below. Read more about what the 12 houses rule here!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Cancer would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Leo 2nd house, Virgo 3rd house, Libra 4th house - New Moon in Libra, Sun in Libra, the North Node in Libra, Scorpio 5th house, Sagittarius 6th house, Capricorn 7th house, Aquarius 8th house, Pisces 9th house, Aries 10th house, Taurus 11th house and Gemini 12th house.

Until Saturday, October 25, 2014 Jupiter in Leo will still 'trine' Uranus in Aries in separating degrees. So there is still plenty of time to take advantage of this wonderful energy and make it work for you. The trine was 'exact in degrees' on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 2:19 PM EDT. Well if this isn't some major-magnificent crazy-cool energy accompanying the New Moon in Libra then I don't know what is. Sure, we have seen conjunctions of Jupiter and Uranus like back in January of 2011 but a trine of Jupiter and Uranus is pretty dang rare. Folks, it has been a very long time since we have seen an aspect like this, especially with Jupiter and Uranus in the fired-up, fire signs (Leo and Aries) making a trine to each other. Remember a trine is fortunate, it is easy and it is effortless. In fact, we are going to see this aspect 3 times within less than a year. That's because Jupiter will be turning Retrograde on December 8, 2014 until April 8, 2015 causing us to 'go back' in time and repeat some energies, including this aspect during a Retrograde period. Since it will take Jupiter some time to get back to the degrees it was at when it first turned Retrograde, then it will give us a 3rd opportunity for this aspect. The 1st opportunity of this aspect will be on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 14 degrees 59 minutes (15 degrees), the 2nd opportunity will be on March 3, 2015 at 14 degrees 35 minutes while Jupiter is in Retrograde status and the 3rd opportunity will be on June 22, 2015 at 20 degrees 02 minutes. This means we will get a first, second and third chance to get this aspect right and down cold.

You know I like to teach and drill the meanings into your brains so you can actually apply this information to your Life and make the Astrology work for you, so let's do this crazy thing. Jupiter is super-fat and loaded with gas. Think of Jupiter as a big fat balloon that is full of air. If you do not tie off the balloon, then the air escapes and then the balloon just flies all over the place and the energy is wasted. But if the balloon is tied off it can remain elevated, floating and traveling under its own power for miles and miles and miles. Well folks, we want to get a lot of mileage out of this big ol' fat balloon, so do your thing and solidify it by tying it off and being firm about it.

Jupiter expands whatever it comes in contact with or whatever it snuggles up next to. During this transit Jupiter will touch Uranus through a trine, which is a 120 degree angle. Uranus is the planet of lightning fast change. A strike from Uranus can make you say, "Whoa, whoa, what the hell happened?" In this case, that question mark would be a Good one. Uranus brings us a sudden change in circumstance that literally comes from out of this world, just like lightning. It is a flash! BAM! When these two planets connect, the outcome is fortunate and usually has to do with money because Jupiter is all about abundance and expansion. This aspect is doubly-delicious if you have set yourself up for Goodness because the outcome is based on your past karma. There is Good karma and of course, bad karma. Jupiter is looking for Good karma to reach out and touch and when coupled with Uranus it reacts like a magic wand. You can certainly expect the unexpected when these two planets meet leaving us in a better position than they found us.

Let's not forget that one day before, on Wednesday, September 24th there is a New Moon in Libra, which could bring a wonderful change in circumstance with relationships and partnerships. At the same time, we all need to look at the houses in our natal chart that are ruled by Leo and Aries at 15 degrees because that is where this abundant lightning strike will take place. At this writing (on Tuesday, September 16th) we are in applying degrees with this aspect, meaning we should be feeling the prodrome (symptom) of this energy as they come closer together. Uranus gives us flashes of intuition and my advice to you my little mentators is to take that flash of intuition and act on it. Leo and Aries are active signs, hence they are fire signs, so sitting on your ass thinking about doing something just won't cut it. Come on baby light your fire! Jupiter is happy-go-lucky, it is fortunate, it is lucky, it is abundant, it is jovial, adventurous and ready to rumble. Jupiter is a happening planet and wants you to make things happen and then it will support you in your effort. No effort, no support. If your child were plopped down on the couch wanting some cash and asking for the keys to the car but yet they were doing nothing to earn it or deserve it, would you give them cash and keys? Well, like I said, "This aspect is doubly-delicious if you have set yourself up for Goodness because the outcome is based on your past karma."

The other great thing about this aspect is Mars in Sagittarius is also making a trine to Jupiter and Uranus, which makes this a Grand Trine. Mars will be at 08 degrees on this date but it is still close enough in orb to reach out and touch both Jupiter and Uranus with a trine aspect. Mars is aggressive, it is competitive and it wants to come out ahead. Oh ho ho ho, there should be no plopping down on the couch right now. Folks, this is that moment of breakthrough. If you have been looking for or wanting a breakthrough, I would not just sit and pray. Remember the old Indian Proverb, "Pray to God and row to shore." YOU STILL HAVE TO ROW! All too often there is praying but no rowing. Put another way, "Faith without action is dead." or "Faith without works is dead." or "Faith without deeds is dead." ~James 2:14-20 . . . so, YOU STILL HAVE TO ROW! Get the picture. This is crazy awesome energy and you do not want to be sitting on the sidelines saying, "Coulda, woulda, shoulda" when you should have jumped on the opportunity when it was right in front of you.

Now I'll bet that some people will continue to cry, "Whoa is me!" and as the months pass by they will be saying, "Coulda, woulda, shoulda" and lucky for us, Jupiter trine Uranus will occur again on March 3, 2015 and then again on June 22, 2015. Instead of waiting for your ship to come around again, you can be sailing further on those dates (on the 2nd and 3rd pass) without having to back track and play catch-up. Get on board now! Again, look to your natal chart to see where these two planets will be at 15 degrees Leo and Aries to see how this will impact your personally, as an individual. As an entire sign, the following two paragraphs apply to your Sun Sign.

For all Cancer's, Jupiter in Leo trine Uranus in Aries will impact your 2nd house of value systems, physical possessions and money, personal self esteem and talents. This house also rules your personal earnings, bankers, budgets, money that "you" make, material resources, value system, monetary gains and losses, security. Basically this house is about your self-worth and your 10th house public life. This house also rules fame, notoriety, occupation, career, ambition, government, military, chief executives, business life, goals, ranks, political position, status, standing in the public eye, position in society. It shows your standing in the community and social status. It can reflect your attitude to parenting as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Cancer would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Leo 2nd house - Jupiter in Leo, Virgo 3rd house, Libra 4th house - New Moon in Libra, Sun in Libra, the North Node in Libra, Scorpio 5th house, Sagittarius 6th house, Capricorn 7th house, Aquarius 8th house, Pisces 9th house, Aries 10th house - Uranus in Aries, Taurus 11th house and Gemini 12th house.

Until November 16, 2014 Neptune in Pisces is Retrograde. Neptune in Pisces turned Retrograde on Monday, June 9, 2014 at 07 degrees and will remain Retrograde until it reaches 04 degrees on November 16, 2014. It won't be until March 6, 2015 before Neptune finally gets back to 07 degrees where it was when it turned Retrograde back on June 9, 2014. Check your Generational Horoscope for more information. The planets that affect an entire generation of people are Pluto, Uranus and Neptune, which take several years to change signs. This is why Neptune is located under your Generational Horoscope.

Until November 24, 2014 at 7:44 PM EDT Chiron will be Retrograde. Chiron turned Retrograde on Friday, June 20, 2014 at 8:46 AM EDT at 17 degrees. Interesting that it is going to take 5 months (nearly half a year) for Chiron to travel back just 4 degrees. So why do it at all? If you read the Neptune Retrograde transit above then you saw that it will also take nearly 5 months for Neptune to Retrograde 3 degrees. It hardly seems worth it. What's 03 or 04 degrees? Why do it all? You see folks, these are the kinds of questions that always rolled through my head when I first began studying astrology at 12 years old. As I moved along through Life studying the patterns of astrology I realized that turning Retrograde and going back that short distance was worth it. I liken it to having to turn back and because I forgot to do something. How many times did you have to turn back and retrace your steps before you could do something else? RATS! Maybe you had to just go back home and get your wallet or maybe you forgot to close the garage door. No matter what it is, Retrograde planets require us to retrace our steps, go back, do something (or do something over) and then we can move forward again. So you see folks, Retrograde planets are a blessing. You should be grateful that the Universe gives you this time to get it together (grab your wallet so to speak) so that you are prepared and you will not end up eating dinner at a restaurant with no way to pay. ooopsie!

So here we have Chiron, the 'wounded healer' in Pisces turning Retrograde. Neptune in Pisces is also Retrograde but they are far enough in degree that they will not even be considered conjunct. They need to be at least within 08 degrees to have an impact to write home about. Neptune in Pisces Retrogrades at 07 degrees and goes back to 04 degrees, and Chiron in Pisces Retrogrades at 17 degrees and goes back to 13 degrees. They are in the same town (so to speak) but a bit too far away from each other to run into one another.

Chiron Retrograde in Pisces is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. We teach and assist others through what we need to heal within ourselves. The man or woman leading the AA (alcoholic anonymous) meeting is an alcoholic. And so must be with that familiar with the subject matter that we need to heal within ourselves, which in turn helps us to help others. In other words, we teach what we need to know (or heal within ourselves). "Physician, heal thyself." ~Luke 4:23. The subject matter written in your Monthly Horoscope is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

For all Cancer's Chiron is shining its healing rays on your 9th house of the higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations, international commerce, dreams, visions and teachers as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below.
