Leo New Moon. Finding your Joy & Strength

Leo New Moon is
August 2 4:44pm  EDT.

I was a bit tardy getting to my New Moon write up.   I had wanted to do it last week but was finding myself in my car more than at my desk and well you know how that goes.    

I have posted it as always on Margaret Wendt's SITE. 

Be big, be bold, find your joy, creativity and go forward and together we'll slay the nonsense coming our way.

Uranus Retrograde

Uranus retrograde

The facts:
Uranus enters shadow:  April 11
Uranus retrograde July 29 1:42p EDT at 24 Aries 30
Uranus direct December 29, 2:13am EDT at 20 Aries 33
Uranus leaves shadow April 14, 2017

Uranus begins its annual retrograde on July 29.    Uranus moves backwards every year and for such a rebellious planet it is funny to think of a rebel going backwards for perhaps another squabble or two.      While Uranus treks through Aries we are all learning something about fighting and being independent.   In drought environments you will see firemen do what is called “controlled burns”.  They will burn down dead shrubs.   They will burn them and then put out the fire.    Large patches of burnt areas  will help in the future if there is a major out of control fire because the fire will hit a wall.     Given Aries is the first fire sign of the zodiac, in some ways Uranus retrograde in Aries feels like a control burns.  For the next five months we may need to be circumspect and do a few control burns.   We may not exactly understand why we are starting a small grass fire and then putting it out.  It may serve us later.   For those people with planets between 20 and 24 degrees of a cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) you may be more aware than others that you have matches in your hand when you send THAT email.  Send THAT text.   Pack THAT bag.  Say goodbye to THAT situation.   My only suggestion is try not to be messy about it.   Don’t lump everyone else in your move and say,  “And I’m not the only one who thinks that way…..blah, blah, blah.”  That’s not Aries.  Make your OWN move.     Also, Uranus is our brilliant planet so Uranus retrograde can also be a time when we go back and perhaps glean something amazing that we missed.  It could be something extraordinary in an ordinary environment that will help us as we find a new path and a new independence.     Enjoy these next five months and see what comes up.

Trump Going Forward --Astrologically Speaking

Donald J Trump is a Gemini with Moon in Sagittarius and Leo Rising.

For those who know astrology none of this is surprising.  The Tweets, the mercurial temperment, the catch phrases for his opponents all speak to the Gemini Sun.   Moving quickly, perhaps rushing too fast, shallowness and little patience especially on the edge of being bored --also Gemini.   But for people who are drawn to DJT they love the constant comments and find his candor refreshing and at at times funny.   Again, Gemini.   The Moon in Sagittarius is the big opinions, paints with a big brush, big rhetoric,  telling the truth as he sees it, all Moon in Sag.    Leo Rising is all about the doing things big, like a big big beautiful wall.   Cocky and ego run amock which I think even his fans can agree is evident, all Leo.  And of course the hair.  Leo.

Of course there are many people who have similiar placements.   Any Gemini born on a full moon around ten in the morning has Gemini Moon in Sag Leo Rising and yet they are all not like DJT.  Ah, no.

You have to go down deep and look at the whole chart of Donald J Trump.

There is so much going on here that I will not go into all the details because it is could be overwhelming.  But what is worth mentioning is the Moon with south node on top of it and Sun & Uranus with North node on top of them.  In houses 4 and 10.    These configurations is destined (not a word I use often) of a man who would have a major public persona, especially with the Uranus placement.    The Mercury, Saturn & Venus in the eleventh house speak to his geniune need to be accepted by groups.   The insecurity is there (Saturn) but so is the love (Venus).  He has his fans and more to the point he really needs the fans to find inner love.      

Pluto and Mars in the 12th house speak to someone who has wild nervous energy.  If he was a child right now there probably would be concern about ADHD.  But at the same time Pluto & Mars in the 12th house resonate with others.   People  see power (Pluto) in him.   Others of course see the bully another Pluto trait.  People who see the power see the man they want to be or want to have in their life.  There is a genuine magnetic charm with these two power players in the 12th house.  Many actors have Pluto or Mars in the 12th.   

If Trump is all that he says he is or what people see in him is unclear.   The 12th house is the most hidden house in the zodiac so what is real we don't know.    It is the house of hidden insecurities.   And motivations that can not always be explained.  Not just by observerers but person with the 12th house planets doesn't know the motivations either.   

It is also important to point out that Mars is not just in the 12th it is on Ascendent.   Mars is the warrior, he is like a fast red race car.  Having Mars on his Ascendent explains a lot of DJT  knee jerk behaviors and  his need to be always moving fast.  It is not an even keel planet to have on the Ascendent.     Mars is looking for an advisary in every meeting, phone call, lunch or casual conversation thus the thin skin.   He may have written the Art of the Deal, but the art of the argument gives Trump vitality.   

Currently, transiting warrior Mars is about to do a very long slog and go after all these planets for the next six months.     For someone thin skinned, mercurial and opinionated with a large ego getting a transit from Mars is like fuel for a fire.  Mars will be driving over him and stirring up all his behaviors good and bad.   The question is what will he do? 

Along with  warrior Mars there will be other planets activating various planets in DJT's chart both easy aspects and hard aspects.   Let's look ahead at the aspects hitting Trump.  I've written a little description as if he were a friend asking me to look at his chart.   

May - November (Exact in September)   Uranus square Saturn. Conflicts both internal and external.   Need to ditch old patterns and replace with real structure this can cause a struggle because the desire is to dig in.   Finding sobriety while changes go around is difficult.  

June-August: Saturn trine Pluto.   Renewal, rebirth, new bridges, transformation leads to accessing new groups.  

July: Mars oppose MC.  Public meets personal life.  Argumentative energy is pronounced.    
July: Mars trine Saturn  Support and connected, feeling accomplishments. 
July: Mars trine Venus brings love and support and lines up for a supportive RNC
July: Mars square Mars.  Sloppy energy, fiery, ego out, roughshod,  bully can come out swinging.

July - August: Jupiter square Moon.  Extra thin skinned.  Issues aroumd woman. Over doing the heated rehetoric.  Pushing on family and roots.   
July - August: Jupiter square Sun.  Over zealotry. Stepping on johnson.  Hypocrisy can be called out.  

August:  Mars square Asc.  Rough, bully is out, fuses are short.  Sloppy actions.

September: Mars trine Mars. Actions line up with unconscious motivations.  Energy flows again. 
September: Mars trine Asc.  Self confidence boosted again.   Physical vitality perks up.  
September - November.  Mars in 5th house.  Accent on theatrics.  Accent on heart.  Creative.  Ego up. 
September - Feb.  Uranus trine Moon.  Unusual and major breakthroughs in emotions.  Feeling the desire to make major changes in home.  Feeling restless. 

October:  Uranus sextile Sun, a boost from an unusual resource.  Faith offers a gift.  Spirituality and designated groups help.
October: Mars square Neptune:   Actions that cause confusion.  Actions that are based on confusion. What is desired may not come to fruition.   
October:  Mars oppose Mercury.  Mouthy.  Sharp comments.  Ego high.  Communication very sharp. 
October: Jupiter square Mercury.  Opinions out there big time.  Embolded with ideas and communication.   Ideas overiding realism.  Out over the skis.  
October:  Jupiter conjunct Neptune.  Money and resources appears to widen.  Power from a new source appears to show up.   These bounties may be real but they may be viewed with rose colored glasses and will not live up to expectations. 
October: Mars square Chiron.  Healing is hard.  Deep insecurities are pushed.  Bad habits come up and are processed.   Creativity and love feel threatened.   Trying to hang on to assets is difficult.   
October:  Jupiter sextile Pluto.  Boost of confidence. Serious internal look at what works and what does not work. Making changes. 
October: Mars square Jupiter.  Outside actions push on beliefs.  Over reacting and ego outbursts while processing new belief system  Dramatic and creative moves feel out of whack.  Actions don't seem to work.   
October - November:  Mars opposition Saturn.  Feeling stuck and blocked.  Working through hurdles feels overwhelming.  Energy going forward feels like cold water is splashed on it. 
October - November.  Mars trine MC.  Feeling vitality about position in the world.  Feeling like all things are going into place. 
October - November:  Mars opposition Venus.  Conflicts with women.   Actions based on love can feel in conflict with groups of people. 
November:  Uranus square Saturn.   Conflicts both internal and external.  Groups of people in conflict changes to go forward.   Challenged between actions that are outrageousness versus measured.   
November - December:  Saturn in opposition to Uranus.   Restructioning, building up, starting from the ground up.  Freedom feels thwarted.   

That is a crazy lot of aspects and most of them are harsh.   Together we will watch how GOP nominee DJT handles the pressure.   

It is also worth looking at the official nominee chart of DJT which took place when Trump officially accepted the nomination on Thursday evening in Cleveland.     This chart speaks of the official candidate going forward.   Not just Donald Trump the person (which we can see from the above aspects) but the chart of the candidate.  


The Moon in Aquarius in the chart resonantes for a lot of america, especially since the USA chart has an Aquarius moon.  Many Americans see a friend in the GOP nominee.    However the Moon in 12th house squaring Mars in 9th is a friend who connects on a dystopic views or connects on a "We're a special group with our own ideals."   Sun trine Mars brings energy and enthusiasm.    Sun Square Uranus is chaotic and disruptive and ego misbehaviors.  Venus trines MC is loaded with charm and warmth and engaging.   Mercury trine MC, communication is strong and connects to many.   Pisces ascendent connects to people who feel dismissed.     

After DNC I will put up a similiar inventory for HRC.

The USA Election Going Forward

If you live on earth and you own a TV or a computer then you are aware the United States is in the middle of a presidential election cycle.   If you are an American and you have not been paying attention to the race, well, first of all, I am in awe of your discipline to block it out, that is talent.  Second, I invite you to start watching because it is a circus on the edge of a shit show.       Even in the nose bleed section you will see cuckoo on crazy.   No kidding.

We have just completed the RNC and are into the first day of the DNC.     We are currently in the Cancer lunar cycle which began July 4 (fittingly) with the New Moon.   On the new moon chart there was an opposition to Pluto.  I said that the Pluto energy would be felt all 29 days and not to be righteous, but I was right.  Lord.  St. Paul, Baton Rouge, Dallas,  Nice,  Trump & RNC plagiarism, and hostile Ted Cruz,   and now DNC more emails leaked, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, angry Bernie Sanders fans,  Putin's moles & Hilary Clinton.   Does everyone remember, Pluto is the ruler of the underworld?     Pluto means business this cycle.   And he is about power including corrupt power.   And it is all out there for us to see.   No, kidding.

Today I saw Bernie Sanders get booed by his delegates when he said to support HRC.   Pissed is pissed.    And this is the start of the week.  Okie dokie.

It is difficult to use astrology to figure out a winner in a presidential election.  Here is a great article that explains how difficult it is to forecast.  However that doesn't stop us from trying!   I  remember in 2000 when the recount was going on for Gore V Bush and everyone was having a hard time locking on the astrology of who would win.  Primarily because we weren't in the skin of Gore or GWB.  Is Jupiter a win for Gore or is Jupiter a relief that he doesn't have to do the world's worst job?  Who knows?  
 It was not until one astrologer and I can't remember who did it but the astrologer took the two charts out a couple years and Gore had aspects that suggested he was in an educating cycle and GWB's chart looked like someone who was at war.    It was then the astrologer said, "Gore will lose"   And of course that was correct.  Gore lost the electoral college and later he did go in 'teacher mode' with his tour of an Inconvenient Truth.  And GWB was at war which we are still fighting.  Sigh.

Anyway, having said all that, I am going to put up some posts that speak to the astrology of our election going forward.  I have been waiting until we got to the conventions.   My experience is sthat tuff will start to unfold and line up with the charts.  Let's all do it together.

This Astrological Week

We are moving in last half of the Cancer lunar cycle.  How have been your emotions for three weeks?   Up and down?   Join the club.   It has been quite a month.    On Saturday we move into  disseminating where we will be processing faith and intuition.    On the 26th we move into last quarter moon where the emotions will no doubt be pushed again.   Actions based on building something up.   Actions based on money and resources will also be accented. And of course there will be tension around stubbornness.     On the 29th Mars gets into it with Mercury so the accent will be on harsh sharp words and impulsive actions.    Bleh.    On the 29th Uranus turns retrograde for its annual move backwards.  We will be once again going back to the well for five months looking for breakthroughs and break outs.   Then on the 30th we go into balsamic, ready to release our cuckoo monkey brain and nervous energy.  

July 23: 2016
8:34 am EDT

Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.   And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information.  

Focus on:  How are you sharing your faith?  How are you sharing your spirituality?  How are you sharing religion?  How are you finding a spiritual guide? How are you accessing your intuition?
