Lunar Eclipse Today!

The bookend of the Solar Eclipse on June first is here!  Today at 4:15 pm there was a total Lunar Eclipse at 24 degree Sagittarius.  Sagittarius, the archer, wander, learner, partier, teacher, loudmouth, sage, sports star, yes it can be all of it.  We are revisiting this experience or dream of the New Moon in December of 2009.  You were starting something that had the potential to be big and expand outward to reach everyone with your efforts.  This was due to the Jupiter Neptune conjunction that happened. As I mentioned before Jupiter Neptune is that magic egg that you were in the processing of putting together that held a unique dream or goal, something of an altruistic or wide reaching appeal.  Jupiter sextile Neptune that happened last Friday was the crux of working hard on it again and see what develops.  This will be a long term project, so this eclipse is about whether or not you want to put the time and effort in to see it through to the end, pick up the mantle or search for another task.

This Lunar Eclipse is also a strong releasing one. Perhaps its the fighting of not letting go of what needs to let go is what makes people tired, it might be so in my case.  Honestly it has been a struggle to even finish this blog entry.   If you can let go of old emotions, struggles, or just junk in the closet you don't need so you can have space to put new things, do it!

Today is when the Emergency Rent Laws of 1920 that guaranteed that rents be stabilized will expire!!!  Since 2000 there have not been any new rent stabilized places built in New York City; by the way New York City is the only city left in America that has rent stabilization.  Let's hope they don't let it expire and we have a mass exodus of people moving!  Thanks Anne for the insight! Here is the article with the lowdown whats at stake here. I think its just a political move and they will add changes or keep status quo. So don't panic yet!

 A follow up entry will happen in the next day or so.  Going to rest now. . .

A few things Today!

We're back and here are the transits and insights to think on!

Neptune(dissolving of boundaries) went retrograde this past Friday, after only being in Pisces(realm of dreams and illusions) for a few months.  Think of it as a trailer for a movie to come, going to have to wait until the Fall to see the opening of the actual movie.  This also makes sense since Neptune rules over the sublime and dreams, like movies.  It will be interesting to see how this affects the types of movies that will be coming or even the volume of movies coming out.  Perhaps those that run the movie industry may rethink their ways or maybe indie directors who shoot, produce, and fund their films might step back rethink their ways as well.  Perhaps we might even see past themes repeat; *cough cough* methinks Hollywood has been under that influence longer than that lol!  We'll see how this unfolds from now until early November.

Jupiter moved into Taurus this past Saturday, into a brand new sign, Taurus.  The groundedness of Taurus will help solidify the opportunities you find, you'll will be able to grasp them and handle them appropriately to get the maximum benefit from them.

Venus moved into Gemini today, the planet of values, possessions and love is now in the realm of ideas and dualities. Someone or some idea strike your fancy? Is it not working out? There is always another side with Gemini, try another way or method to go about getting what you want. Look in mirror and see the backwards image, perhaps you missed something looking at with your forward point of view.  Gemini is also about being flexible with ideas, relationships, and tasks.  That is why Gemini is considered to be a Mutable Sign, it changes to adapt to situations.  Also there is a caveat with that two(pun),  as I mentioned before, there is always another side with Gemini, make sure you don't just look at the side you like; flip that coin over to make sure that it is not fake currency! Mercury the Messenger God is also the patron God of Thieves.

Jupiter will be sextile Neptune for the next week or so.  This goes back to the story when they were joined in May 27 2009 and again after the retrograde in Dec 21 2009  shortly after a New Moon in at 24 degree Sagittarius.  How far has that dream gotten?  What was it that you wished the Universe would send you?  This sextile is part of the 12 year your journey of this amazing egg of wonders, dreams, and opportunity that is Jupiter Neptune joined. Today for instance things were just given to me at work.  Even though I was working hard as a tour boat photographer(totally Neptune) in the blazing sun, people gifted me food, water and even a tip!  I attribute this to the Jupiter sextile Neptune and the Void of Course Moon.  The Void of Course Moon make the unapproachable, approachable, in combination with the afore mentioned transit.  The real trick is that you can't really have too many pre-existing expectations, you have to just go with the flow to really utilize it. If you look for treasure, don't, it will find you!  So another use of this influence, especially this Saturday there will be another Void of Course Moon, use it to your advantage, go on adventures and wander around.  I recommend if you are near New York the Figment Project on Governor's Island, make or explore arts,  thats all about Jupiter Neptune!

Also an important side note about 24 degrees Sagittarius, that will be where the Full Lunar Eclipse will happen on the 15 of June.  I will go into more detail about next week.  Here's a sneak peek, not everything goes according to plans. . .

In the news going along with Venus in Gemini(value of Information) very techie and Jupiter sextile Neptune, the flood gates have opened on Palins' thoughts! No not current thoughts, she is already all over the place. Now 24, 000 pages of Palins' emails will be released to the public from her two years as governor of Alaska.  Tomorrow at 1:00 pm, feel like doing a good deed? Or got too much time and wanna do some kind of deed? The New York Times needs you help as a reader to help sort these out, cause thats a boatload of emails!!!! Help with the Bailing of the Email Flood that is Palin.  Who knows, as I mentioned before you might find some gem in that seas of emails!  Also shortly after the Jupiter Neptune conjunction Jupiter went retrograde(energies turned inward) Sarah Palin resigned from being the governor of Alaska.  Perhaps she needed to rethink where she was going, after running as the Vice-President candidate for McCain Presidential Campaign that didn't pan out and amidst major criticism over many flagrant abuses of state funding and her controversial stances on issues.  Palin now is still gunnin' for that Presidential run as the Republican nominee, we shall see. . . This newest chapter will either work out for her or not, it depends how she uses it.  Sextiles, are an aspect that will work in your favor, if and only if you put effort into making it work.  Think of sextiles as you go half the distance yourself, it will carry you the rest of the way once you started the journey. 

Go Play in the Sun, but keep hydrated and wear plenty of sun block! :)

I would also like to give a shout to the electronic band Booka Shade, they helped me ride the groove to write this snazzy Astro Article!!!

Solar Eclipse Today!

Its an Eclipse! What will it bring and how long will it last?

So a solar eclipse is a phenomenon that happens when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and gets in between the path between the Sun and the Earth.  Great, what does that mean?  Well Solar Eclipses are powerful times to start new things in  your life.  In a nutshell is the unification of the Sun and Moon in the sky.  There is generally a lot of energy generated during one and it creates a space to start new ventures, relationships, business, or new perspectives on life.  I think of it as an illumination of the hidden potential you have inside and when effort is exerted, this truth will come forth into fruition.  Think of Solar Eclipse as putting super miracle on a seedling, its gonna grow big!  Especially if you have a solar eclipse fall on an inner planet in your chart, it will have a strong connection to you and indicate a new direction in your life.  For instance if it fell on the planet Venus(values) in the 2nd house(resources, possessions) most likely you would have a great job opportunity or new way to make money will come on in with the eclipse.  Eclipses usually have up to a two week period they that they trigger events in your chart, a lot of the times events that are already in motion.  Its important to look at Eclipses, before and after they occur.  When you look before you can see what change it will bring about, specifically with the Solar what new influence to your chart.  If you look at past eclipses they show you what triggered a series of events that started off where you are now.  Eclipses happens in pairs, first the Solar brings in the new change and the Lunar finalized it or clears out any debris that is slowing your growth down.  A lot of times relationships, jobs, or places where you are live that are started during on Eclipse, can leave you by the next one, not something to fear, just to keep in mind.  I also think of the Eclipses as the deus ex machina, where the Universe reaches on in and literally thrusts something into your life or removes obstacles blocking your path of self development.  They act very similar to when the North and South Node move over your natal planets or major points in your chart.  That is because there is a relationship between them, an eclipse usually occurs within 8-10 degrees of where the North or South Node is. North and South Nodes are calculated points that are the point where the Sun and the Moon form a particular angle to Earth.  This is important because it show us where we currently are between our will and personal path(Sun) and our needs and past(Moon), a destiny point.

This particular Solar Eclipse will be make a positive aspect to Saturn(structure, survival) today so these new changes and goals you are putting forth will stick.  Which is good news, because Jupiter(expansion, opportunity) is nearing the end of its journey in the fiery sign of Aries, which will help focus and solidify your aspirations so you can use the planets Venus, Mercury, and Mars in Taurus to start the serious work phase of achieving your goals that inspired you in early April. 

For more information on how the eclipses will affect your I suggest looking at where it is in your chart or getting someone adept at looking and interpreting eclipses.  Since I have been getting lot of questions from people about how it will be affecting them,   I will be offering 15 minute mini readings for $20 to people interested in knowing more about it.  Contact me at

Until Next time!
