The controversy over Michael Jackson's correct birth-time may have finally
been resolved, by new information from Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal, who
claims he consulted with Mr. Jackson back in the late 80's. The time of birth
given by Michael to his astrologer was 7:33 PM

Early in the Morning (3:37am EDT) Uranus turns retrograde.
Uranus is going retrograde on July 1 and will remain such until December.
1. Uranus moves backwards every year so this move is not
unique. Uranus is a mental planet like its lower octave planet Mercury, so
when it retrogrades we tend to go back and rethink stuff. We wonder what
made us do stuff, why we did this and why we did that. However, it
is not a passive period where we casually think, “Gosh, I wonder what that was
all about?” It has more grit to it and we think more, “That was such a
mess how I can change things so I don’t do that again?” Of course
coming up with a solution can be difficult and we may get frustrated. This
is when things can go snap and people do something very impulsive.
Try to avoid that!!! The key is to remember the truth is that there is
always a solution. It will just take a lot of creativity, intuition and a
small bit of genius ( A Uranus word). Of course getting the mind to accept
the creativity is usually the hardest step. Meditation and
reflection (Pisces) will help a lot during the next five months
And we have a lot of other activity.
On July 1 we have Uranus turning retrograde (see above) and we have Venus
squaring Neptune (4:01pm EDT) which brings out a lot of illusions about loved
ones. And we will have Mercury trine Neptune (4:48pm EDT) which will
soften the blow such that even if we are feeling betrayed or just sad our mind
will remind us, “This too will pass”. Then later Mercury makes a great aspect
with Jupiter (9:34pm EDT) that will lift our spirits even
further. But at the very end of the day Mercury goes and gets into
it with Uranus (10:13pm EDT) and pushes us perhaps too far. My
suggestion is stay off the phone and the internet during the evening. It will
just piss you off.

The death of Michael Jackson Thursday sent the internet a surge of traffic that
caused crashes and slowdowns in what one website is calling a major "wake-up
call" for internet infrastructure.
This is interesting to me because back on New Moon which was on Sunday (and feels like an eternity ago)...anyway back there I wrote that the harsh aspect from Uranus on the New Moon would influence the entire 28 days. Specifically we need to watch out for the Uranus items...
Along with Pluto getting into it with the Sun and Moon we also have Uranus making a harsh aspect to the Sun and Moon. The desire to rebel and say, “So what” and do something abrupt will be great. Uranus hates to be trapped, hates to be pigeon hold –it seeks to break ground any way it can. It seeks to be the great provocateur. It is the planet of revolutions. Since this is a harsh aspect we should expect that there will be news events where someone goes “off”. Certainly, the turmoil in Iran feels very Uranus. And Kim Jong Il in North Korea continues to look like a crazy villain in a Batman movie but with Uranus it is often a case of “expect the unexpected.” It may come from some unusual corner of the world.
Of course, Uranus rules airplanes, computers, cyberspace, and electricity so there could be issues on all those fronts. An electrical storm in some unusual place causes problems. Airplanes return to airports because of an unusual short circuit? A hacker sends out a virus? Perhaps the new iphone has big bad bugs. Anything is possible with Uranus.
Anyway, I am not surprised this information comes out while Mercury is squaring Saturn. Remember we are all learning our weak spots during this 28 day Lunar cycle. Never underestimate Pluto Oppose Sun/Moon.

As always my full article can be found here
But here is snippet:
Home Sweet (…..& Sour) Home
Cancer rules the home, family and where we find our roots. It is our genealogy and it is where we allow ourselves to be cozy. It how we nurture our selves, it is our food. It is sentimental and loves memories. Even the bad ones. It will hang on to good and bad with equal ferocity.
Cancer the crab does not run straight into the waves, it runs from side to side. Cancer is not a straight shooter. It will go to the left and penetrate and then it will go to the right and penetrate. When it is insecure it can get itself into a frenzy going back and forth, back and forth trying to find help from all kinds of places until it is completely spent (both emotionally and financially). However, when it finds its center and harnesses its great emotions it can accomplish Herculean tasks. Enough to make the rest of us look like mere mortals.
Between 2009 and 2023 every Cancer new Moon will potentially be challenged by Pluto. Some years it will be in effect and some years it will not experience mighty Pluto. As it is, this year we are going to have two Cancer New Moons. The first one on June 22 is at an early degree of Cancer and then the second Cancer new moon on July 21 is the last degree of Cancer. It is this first New Moon in Cancer that is a perfect Opposition to Pluto. Let us all say it together-----“OUCH!”

Jupiter turns retrograde, the action of Jupiter is reversed so that the emphasis
is upon inner awareness and inner growth. It is an excellent time to get in
touch with personal integrity. Jupiter rules role playing in order evoke a
positive external reaction. When transiting Jupiter is afflicting natal planets,
you will find yourself dealing with phoniness in both yourself and others. When
Jupiter is retrograde, you should evaluate how you are not being honest with
yourself because you are playing a role that is disloyal to your true self. When
opportunities arise while Jupiter is retrograde, they are the result of seeds
planted in the past from people met or connections made in the past.

I will return when i put out the fires over here IRL!

Today, June 10 at 11:33am (EDT) Mercury at 26 (almost 27) degrees of Taurus will Square Jupiter in Aquarius. Jupiter is the biggest planet in our system and when it touches anything it exaggerates it. Mercury is the way we think, talk, calculate and the way we interact. Taurus is things that we value that are personal like our money, our purchases for our home, real estate, concrete items, things we feel and touch. Aquarius is about things that can't be touched or felt it is more focused on things that are broader such as community, like minded groups of people, causes greater than self. Our minds will be about our self interest or how to accomplish stuff that is right in front of us but at the same time we are pulled to get out of self and expand to help community. Do I make a call that puts me out there but it is for the greater cause? Or do I stay in the background and preserve my own interests and let the community figure it out without my help? No matter what choice is made it probably does not feel good.
At the same time, Jupiter is so huge and Mercury is so talkative that anything we share with anyone is subject to be repeated..... and Repeated..... and REPEATED. Gossip will be high. Try to use discretion. If you can.
And added to this mix is the fact that Mercury Squared Neptune yesterday. (I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to post a reminder) which is clouding up the whole mess. When Neptune and Mercury are interacting with each other we are duped easily, our thoughts are confused and the communication is not all on the up and up. You know that time of the year where it seems everyone you talk to is lying? Or every piece of information you receive is incorrect? Well, this is THAT week. The only way to make your way through this with little injury is to have your antenna up super high. Meditate and reflect upon what you need to say and do and that should help while Mercury and Jupiter and Neptune fight it out.
These aspect were exact yesterday and today but are felt all week.

June 7 2:12pm (EDT)
The influence of the full moon starts when it is exact (today) and it can be felt for the whole 3.2 days before it moves into its next phase (Disseminating is on Thursday.)
Normally when the Moon is in Sag there is a little streak of optimism. (Of course anything seems a bit brighter after Scorpio Moon.) But this Full Moon in Sag has got a rub going on with Saturn. We already discussed that the Sun in Gemini was squaring Saturn in Virgo on Friday and now the Moon in Sag has joined the tribe and it too is either giving or receiving a whack with Saturn. All of this mutes the normally abundant nature of Sag moon. We continue to be on task to take care of work and responsibilities no matter how much all we want to do is get in the car and drive away.
You will probably either see or experience tensions around the following areas for the next three days.
Tensions around communication and or gossip (Gemini), details, daily schedules (Virgo) opinions, judgments, travel (Sag), vitality, drama, pride (Sun), family, children, mom, nurturing, food (Moon), work, duties, pessimism, responsibility (Saturn).
For those of you who know your charts this tension is happening between 15 – 17 degrees of Gemini, Virgo & Sag. If any of you have a planet at those degrees in Pisces---you should prepare for that planet to get its bell rung. See what comes up.
One other note:
Mercury continues to be under the square from Neptune and Jupiter so figuring out fact from fiction and fact from hope is still very tricky at this time.

Mars in Taurus will make a beautiful trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Taurus of course is an earth sign and Capricorn is an earth sign. Mars is a warrior and no nonense about getting work done. Pluto is an excellent driller in fact he can go down to the middle of earth and bring out the magic diamond if need be.. (remember Pluto's home is Hades).
So, when these two hard working no nonsense types get together in earth signs, well, expect the energy to propel you through your day. If you have had some things on your TO DO list and you have dreaded doing them... tomorrow is the day to do it.
Feel the energy move you. Think of yourself as a bulldozer finally dealing with the muck and mire to make something grand.
Start pushing the dirt.....you can do it!

Last survivor of "unsinkable" Titanic dies at 97
By MEERA SELVA and JILL
LAWLESS – 12 hours ago
LONDON (AP) — Millvina Dean was the youngest
passenger on RMS Titanic, just nine weeks old when she was wrapped in a sack and
lowered from the sinking ship into a lifeboat bobbing on the frigid North
Dean lived to become the disaster's last survivor. She
died Sunday at the age of 97 in Southampton, the English port from which her
family sailed on the ill-fated liner, intending to begin a new life in the
