THIS WEEK'S WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY 'REMINDERS'

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!

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

Monday, February 23, 2015 at 8:56 AM EST the Sun in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius at 04 degrees 37 minutes as indicated on the 2015 Major Planetary Events Calendar. This aspect gives us strong ambitions but it also causes us to pull back in hesitation and reservation because we fear and expect rejection. This in turn makes us defensive and pissed off. Think about it, a defensive posture is always self-protection. Do not underestimate your potential or your self-worth. You can do this! You may feel a setback today but as I wrote on my Astrology Facebook page this setback is probably just so that you can get yourself together before you progress forward. If everything happens for a reason, then why would there be a setback? It's like the Universe is saying, "Whoa, whoa, wait a minute! Do this before you do that!" You may only fear rejection when there isn't any rejection there to be feared. You are probably making it all up in your pretty little head just because you can't believe that something better could actually happen. Well believe it folks! Something better can happen and i t can happen TO YOU! Whatever setback occurs, the Universe may be throwing a delay into the mix just to see how you handle it. If you go crazy and can't handle it, then you may not be able to handle what you really want. This is a self-worth aspect, so you must get over yourself and get out of your own way, so you can move on to bigger, better and more. This aspect really is great for business because it will teach you how to be steady, stable and persistant with just the right amount of skepticism so you don't make any ridiculous decisions. This aspect is about maturity and responsibility, so handle it.

This aspect involves your 5th and 8th houses. The 5th house of pleasurable activities, parties, romance, dating, Love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, Lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, babies, pregnancy, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss and the 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or business partner, joint resources, support from other people, insurance, legacies, other people's money, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances and wills. It also includes, surgeries, spirituality, astral experiences, the metaphysical realm, transformation, regeneration and covers death or endings (rebirth), sex and an element of legal matters.

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

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 9:58 AM EST Venus in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius at 04 degrees 39 minutes as indicated on the 2015 Major Planetary Events Calendar. This aspect causes us to be more dependable, dutiful and stable in relationships. In romantic relationships this aspect reveals itself as assessment, caution, hesitation and reservation (as in reserved nature). This aspect helps to have a Good judge of character. The emotions are very controlled with this aspect, which can come across as cold and uncaring. This aspect is actually better for business partnerships as it is not only a Good judge of character but it brings about sound business judgment. Basically, whether personal or professional your head is screwed on straight so you don't fly over the Moon footloose and fancy free.

This aspect involves your 5th and 9th houses. The 5th house of pleasurable activities, parties, romance, dating, Love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, Lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, babies, pregnancy, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss and the 9th house of the dreams, visions, goals, ambitions, new adventures, new experiences, higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, teachers, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations and international commerce.

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 10:09 PM EST Mars in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius at 04 degrees 42 minutes as indicated on the 2015 Major Planetary Events Calendar. This aspect brings about self-discipline, strong work ethic, a hard worker and self-controlled. What does that stance sound like . . police or military? This is the mark of the self-controlled, dutiful and disciplined solider. This energy will like reveal itself at work or in an atmosphere where duties are concerned. This aspect is very productive and will not waste time or resources. There is respect for others and acceptance for those who are on their own path of career or work development. This aspect brings with it an understanding that Good fortune is earned through diligence and commitment to work. In other words, Good fortune is not luck, an accident or per chance, this aspect brings the understanding that success comes through constancy to your purpose. So stick with it and do it because this aspect will support you in your efforts.

This aspect involves your 5th and 9th houses. The 5th house of pleasurable activities, parties, romance, dating, Love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, Lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, babies, pregnancy, children.

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 11:55 PM EST Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces at 07 degrees 15 minutes as indicated on the 2015 Major Planetary Events Calendar. This aspect puts us way out there . . and I mean way out there on either fantasy island or out into the ethers. There is a high probability of escapist tendenices, which I call 'the great escape' or 'pulling a Houdini'. This can show up in a negative form such as recreational drugs, alcohol or some form of addictive behavior. Or it can show up as creativity in art, music, writing or acting. This energy is so out there that it is literally 'out of this world' or 'other worldly'. Going into the depths or into the ethers is likely. If you are prone to depression or if you are having an identity crisis, then stay clear of any addictive temptations because it can prove to be too much. Keep in mind that Pisces can drink like a fish and eat like a fish, which means there is no end until there is nothing left. This energy is so full and Lovely that you really should do all you can to channel it into creative pursuits. Stay up all night writing your blog, writing your screenplay, painting on fresh canvas, making your jewelry, writing a new song or whatever it may be. This watery connection between the Sun and Neptune means let it flow, let it flow, let it flow . . out of you and into physical manifestation. The high degree of fantasy and imagination will help you beyond your own wildest imagination.

This aspect involves your 8th house. The 8th house of the wealth of your spouse or business partner, joint resources, support from other people, insurance, legacies, other people's money, stocks, bonds, taxes, inheritances and wills. It also includes, surgeries, spirituality, astral experiences, the metaphysical realm, transformation, regeneration and covers death or endings (rebirth), sex and an element of legal matters.

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

Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 10:55 AM EST Mercury in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries at 14 degrees 29 minutes as indicated on the 2015 Major Planetary Events Calendar. This is the 3rd time in 2015 that we will have experienced this aspect. The first time was on January 13th at 12 degrees, the second time was on January 28th at 13 degrees and this will be the 3rd time at 14 degrees. Mercury in Aquarius has been a long transit because we experienced a Retrograde during its transit time. So here we have 3rd times a charm, which I believe means we must have needed it. So folks, here it is again. The sextile aspect shows a co-operation between the two planets involved, which leads to opportunity. It is a positive blend of two planets.

Mercury is the planet of communication, gadgetry and mental abilities, while Uranus is planet of sudden change, quickness and alertness. This aspect makes the mind alert and speech rapid, which can make your ideas ahead of their time. In fact, everyone should be writing down their ideas because while they may not manifest fully today (because the ideas are ahead of their time) you will want to look back and see when you first had that idea. And maybe, the idea will manifest today or sometime soon because this is the 3rd time for this aspect this year. You may just start working on bringing the idea into physical reality. Ideas are progressive, inventive and innovative. This is a Good time for meetings because the energy is easy and clever with words. So if you have something to present or sell, this would be a Good time to do it. Even if you are applying for something where you need to sell yourself, this is a great time for it. It's also a great time for teaching and sharing knowledge. This aspect reflects a mobile mind, which means you could involve travel and speaking for many of you. This also refers to something more business, not romantic.

This aspect involves your 7th and 9th houses. The 7th house of contractual relationships. This house also rules unions, lawsuits, contracts, partnerships, marriages, agreements, and open enemies with the public. This can be partnerships in business, marriage or a committed relationship that is a live-in arrangement. It also includes long-term associations, the animus (underlying passion or force), the relationship between soul and personality and the 9th house of the dreams, visions, goals, ambitions, new adventures, new experiences, higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, teachers, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations and international commerce.

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

Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 4:15 PM EST Mercury in Aquarius opposing Jupiter in Leo at 14 degrees 45 minutes as indicated on the 2015 Major Planetary Events Calendar. This is the aspect of the know-it-all or the intellectual snob. Mercury is the planet of communication, the simple mind, basic and rational thinking, mental abilities (how we process information) and how we deliver (communicate) that information. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, global awareness and the higher thinking mind. Not only are Aquarius and Leo opposing signs, Mercury and Jupiter are opposing planets. That's because Mercury naturally rules Gemini and the 3rd house, and Jupiter naturally rules Sagittarius and the 9th house. Gemini and Sagittarius are opposing signs, so it's pretty much a double-whammy of opposing energy.

This opposition between Mercury and Jupiter can be quite argumentative because both planets are in the opposite signs shown. Talk about a complete opposition of energy. This opposition can make us prone to making mountains out of molehills. It creates a struggle to keep a balanced viewpoint, but can become fanatical in pursuit of our beliefs. This aspect reveals mental over-confidence and it shows the tendency to go to extremes, promising more than you can deliver. Keep in mind that before these two planets become 'exact' in degrees on this date, they are coming together several days beforehand in an 'applying' aspect. This is why we will feel this energy several days before it hits.

Notice when or if your conversation or words are not backed up with action and follow though. There is a constant need with this transit to produce thoroughness and attention to detail. In matters of education this can make an individual somewhat conceited. Yet in education, the person speaking the most and talking over everyone else may have pursued esoteric, literary, scholarly or philosophic studies that lack practical value to even earn a living. This shows up as the individual who earned a degree but can't seem to find a way to use it. It might also be an individual with no advanced degree at all but shoves all their knowledge down everyone else's throat. We must all avoid alienating people with a "know-it-all" attitude. There is an insatiable appetite for learning which can serve us all well once we have learned to focus our attention in one area and develop a specific field.

This aspect involves your 1st and 7th houses. The 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation and the 7th house of contractual relationships. This house also rules unions, lawsuits, contracts, partnerships, marriages, agreements, and open enemies with the public. This can be partnerships in business, marriage or a committed relationship that is a live-in arrangement. It also includes long-term associations, the animus (underlying passion or force), the relationship between soul and personality.

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

Until April 8, 2015 Jupiter in Leo will be Retrograde. Jupiter turned Retrograde in Leo on Monday, December 8, 2014. As stated in the top two paragraphs on this page,, Retrogrades serve a wonderful purpose, which is to give us a 'do-over' before progressing forward. Retrograde planets are meant to help you back-track, regroup, rewind, rejuvenate and get your Life back on track before getting to the place that you desire to be. Let's just say that you intend to go on a trip and you leave the house but forget your wallet and airline ticket. You have taken care of everything else such as a pet sitter for the dog, someone to get your mail and you have your luggage in the car . . . BUT you forgot your wallet and airline ticket. So now you have to go all the way back home and get these two things and in the meantime you miss your plane. Now you have to call the airline and reschedule because you forgot two of the most important things. You can not go on the trip without your wallet or airline ticket. This is what Retrograde planets are like for us, they make us back-track, regroup and rewind in order to get everything we need as we head off in a certain direction in our Life. It's pretty cool that the Universe gives us 3 chances to get ourselves straightened out before we progress forward.

Back on July 17, 2014 Jupiter moved into Leo at 00 degrees 00 minutes. By July 21, 2014 Jupiter had traveled to 01 degrees, then by July 26, 2014 Jupiter had traveled to 02 degrees, then by July 30, 2014 Jupiter had traveled to 03 degrees. Fast forward to now (December 8, 2014) Jupiter has traveled to 22 degrees and now it will turn Retrograde had head backward in degrees, back-tracking over the degrees that it took to get here. It is putting itself in reverse (Retrograde) and taking the same route backward. Jupiter will keep heading backward in degrees until April 8, 2015.

December 8, 2014 - the Retrograde begins with Jupiter in Leo at 22 degrees where it has been 22 degrees from November 19 - December 8, 2014.

December 29, 2014 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 21 degrees where it was at 21 degrees back on November 7 - 18, 2014.

January 10, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 20 degrees where it was at 20 degrees back on October 29 - November 6, 2014.

January 20, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 19 degrees where it was at 19 degrees back on October 21 - 28, 2014.

January 28, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 18 degrees where it was at 18 degrees back on October 14 - 20, 2014.

February 4, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 17 degrees where it was at 17 degrees back on October 8 - 13, 2014.

February 12, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 16 degrees where it was at 16 degrees back on October 2 - 7, 2014.

February 20, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 15 degrees where it was at 15 degrees back on September 26 - October 1, 2014.

February 28, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 14 degrees where it was at 14 degrees back on September 21 - 25, 2014.

March 10, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 13 degrees where it was at 13 degrees back on September 15 - 20, 2014.

March 24, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 12 degrees where it was at 12 degrees back on September 10 - 14, 2014.

April 8, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will turn Direct at 12 degrees and begin growing in degrees starting at 12 degrees where it was back on September 10 - 14, 2014.

So basically this Retrograde period is slowly taking you back to September 10 - 14, 2014. For some reason, the Universe wants to take us back to that time period and we can not progress forward unless we go back there and make a correction or do what we forgot to do.

When Jupiter turns Direct on April 8, 2015 it will go across the degrees 12 up to 22 degrees again, which means this will be its 3rd pass over those same degrees. Forward-backward-forward. How kind of the Universe that we get 3 chances to advance ourselves before we advance our purpose. Keep these dates in mind as you continue to work your Jupiter in Leo placement, which I have written all about for your Sun Sign in your Yearly Horoscope. All of the Jupiter in Leo information still applies. You can still call in your abundance and your Life will still expand greatly, but the speed at which you do this depends on just how much you forgot to do earlier or need to do-over during this Retrograde period.
