March 1 through March 31, 2016

March 1 through March 31, 2016

There are two eclipses this month: new Moon eclipse on March 8 and full Moon eclipse March 23.

Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius are in square with each other all month. This portends tension from the practical ones pushing the idealistic ones, to no avail. Jupiter does not like being in Virgo because he is restricted. Saturn does not like being in Sagittarius because he is being asked to expand - aghast! The degrees are 16, so if you have a 16-degree planet in your chart this will reflect in your chart. Pluto is at 17 degrees Capricorn, helping the practical Jupiter situation.

March begins with a quarter Moon in the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces on March 1. The stress is fuzzy irritation between Sagittarius and Pisces, followed by Gemini and Virgo. Cancer and Scorpio can help Pisces by soothing feelings; Aries and Leo can help Sagittarius with creative ideas.

March 2: opportunity for exciting activities with friends; love life is good if you will allow and accept independence. Today is especially good for Aquarius and Aries, followed by Gemini and Libra. Leo may experience a relationship suddenly (only for today) independent. Aries could be a catalyst to benefit those who enjoy the unexpected.

March 3: Moon goes into Capricorn, creating an opportunity for practical creativity, with Pisces benefitting.  Aquarius and Virgo have a hard time communicating because of lack of understanding. Gemini and Libra can help Aquarius; Taurus and Capricorn can help Virgo. For all, be careful of spending. It would be wise to wait a day before completing the purchase.

March 4: Capricorn is the strongest energy today, which is practical and initiative. The begins with an opportunity for practical application of creativity, followed by a strong communication about finances or investments, the early afternoon sees high emotions about change, ending with harmony regarding practical projects.

March 5: Moon goes into Aquarius. Challenging communications between Aquarius and Scorpio, most likely control issues over money. Gemini can offer the other side of the situation, with Libra being the diplomat. Cancer can sooth Scorpio’s emotions with Pisces offering a creative response. Leo and Taurus can be drawn into the control issues if you are not paying attention.

March 5: Mercury goes into Pisces through April 22. This is the time for Pisces to present your creative ideas. Cancer and Scorpio benefit with harmonious communications. Virgo may be irritated by vague communication, Taurus and Capricorn have the opportunity to offer practical solutions. Aquarius and Aries are neutral; Leo and Libra are neutral. Gemini and Sagittarius could be irritated from vagueness and indecisiveness.

March 5: Mars goes into Sagittarius through May 27. Sagittarius becomes more active and goes on more trips. Projects may become scattered without a firm plan. Gemini may experience arguments with Sagittarius over ideas. Both these signs need help communicating. Aries can give direction, with Leo giving stability via good management. Libra may help Gemini be diplomatic, and Aquarius can present the long-range picture. Aries and Leo should enjoy beneficial, creative activities. Taurus and Cancer adjust to things not going as expected. Virgo and Pisces experience challenging situations regarding projects.

March 6: tense, irritating situation, especially between Pisces and Sagittarius, followed by Gemini and Virgo. Things do not go as expected because the practical is asking the creative to slow down. This is evident between Virgo and Aries. There is a need to be flexible and accommodating to evaluate all the details. Decision is premature. As the afternoon progresses, situations have the opportunity to be more harmonious. At the very end of the day and into

March 7: Opportunity today to put creativity into reality if you look at the long-range plan. Today is especially good for Pisces and Capricorn, followed by Cancer, scorpio Taurus and Virgo. Moon goes into Pisces this afternoon.

March 8: the new Moon eclipse at 18 degrees Pisces 55 minutes, opposing transiting Jupiter. If you have a planet, your ascendent or midheaven at 17, 18 or 19 degrees, you will feel this eclipse. How will depend upon what sign your planet is in. Pisces could be more active than usual. Virgo experiences more of the vagueness and lack of detail. Virgo, be careful of your emotions today. Cancer and Scorpio have good emotions and can help Pisces. Taurus can help Virgo be stable, and Capricorn can give direction. Gemini and Sagittarius could be greatly irritated. Leo and Libra have a day of the unexpected and need to accommodate them. Aries and Aquarius should be neutral, except that Jupiter is asking for details.

Aquarius and Aries are neutral. Leo and Libra adjust to things not going as expected. Taurus and Capricorn have the opportunity to join a creative project and offer common sense.

March 12: Venus goes into Pisces through April 5. Pisces is the initiator (for them) in affection. Cancer and Scorpio enjoy a good love life and finances. Virgo yet again is irritated, possibly by an over-affectionate mate. Taurus and Capricorn have the opportunity for a good love life or romantic days if you will leave work. Gemini and Sagittarius do not enjoy relationships that are too close, but your loved one needs to show you affection during this time. Aquarius and Aries are neutral. Leo and Libra are surprised by the initiation of affection from a normally shy person.

March 13: Moon goes into Gemini.

March 14: challenging day for Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius. Even though your loved one may be more affectionate, today they may escape into their own space. Communication is vague, impractical and irritating. This is for everyone.

March 15: communication from Pisces pleases Capricorn and those who are practical and irritates Virgo and those who are detail oriented. This is good day for Pisces to present your ideas and plans, and if you include a person you consider steady and effective, they will go forward well. Details and practical ideas are favored. The quarter Moon comes into exact effect at 01:02:52 pm ET, setting off challenging communications with everybody, but especially the signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Irritation abounds this afternoon. this evening the Moon goes into Cancer, calming emotions.

March 16: finally, a break from the irritating communication. Jupiter is getting along with Pluto. In English this means the person dealing with details and the effective leader are working well together to put forward a practical plan with long-range effectiveness. The signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are highly favored today, so be sure to express your ideas and plans. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces have opportunities to help this long range plan and you have a good day. Aries may adjust to unexpected request for details as may Gemini and Sagittarius. Leo may seem to be ignored because of the practical, business-like day with no talk of creativity. Aquarius can offer good management ideas for the long range plan. Libra can offer ideas for working with the public and with alliances.

March 17: St Patrick’s Day when we are all Irish by celebration. Mildly good day with a decision to stay home or go out. Mild sudden change in the early evening, the day ending harmoniously.

March 18: the Sun and Moon are getting along, portending a good day for Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, followed by Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. The Moon goes into Leo early in the morning.

March 20: Sun goes into Aries: this is the first day of Spring and the Spring Equinox. The Moon goes into Virgo. There are several planets in Pisces, so it may rain. This is Aries’ month, so go forth and begin your projects. Leo and Sagittarius are there to both help you and benefit from your activity. Libra may experience your partner wanting to go it alone for a month, with you chaffing at lack of companionship. Gemini and Aquarius enjoy opportunities for good activity. Cancer and Capricorn enjoy challenges to get more active. Virgo and Scorpio adjust to unexpected and impulsive activities. Pisces and Taurus are neutral.

March 21: Mercury joins the Sun in Aries through April 5. Communication suddenly becomes clearer, with direction and orders to act. Aries is even more active and eager to present ideas. Leo and Sagittarius benefit, Gemini and Aquarius have the opportunity to be involved. Libra feels even more pushed or more lonely. Libra is usually gracious and cooperative, but when Libra is pushed too far, they have outbursts of temper. These outbursts are possible this coming few weeks. Cancer and Capricorn “enjoy” more challenging communications. Pisces and Taurus are neutral. Virgo and Scorpio continue to adjust to the impulsiveness.

March 23: the full Moon eclipse is in the signs of Libra and Aries, setting off challenging, impulsive actions. It is exact at 08:00:47 am ET, with Mercury conjuct the eclipse. The degree is 3 Degree Libra 17 minutes, so look at this in your chart to see if it will be set off. Jupiter is exactly square Saturn in the signs of Virgo and Sagittarius at 16 degrees Virgo and Sagittarius. Expect it to be a crazy day. Full moons are crazy enough, but this one has the extra energy of the other planets. The full Moon energy is challenging for Cancer and Capricorn, and the other square is also challenging for Gemini and Pisces. The energy of a Jupiter/Saturn square means one cannot get away with anything. There may be a news story about something that was hidden. But if you have that 16 degree planet in your chart, you may have to own up to something from the past. The areas of the body symbolized by this full Moon eclipse are the adrenal glands, bladder, and the head, including eyes, brain and upper jaw.

March 24: Good day for creative projects and communication, especially for Aries and Sagittarius, followed by Leo. Cancer and Capricorn may experience mildly challenging communication. Gemini could be challenged verbally, but are fully capable of seeing all sides of the situation and having a good day. The quieter signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn may just choose to stay in the background to enjoy the day. Libra and Aquarius could enjoy active conversations, but it should go smoothly.

March 25: Saturn goes retrograde through August 13 in the sign of Sagittarius. Venus is being less loving and gracious than usual. Love challenges to either Virgo or someone who is reticent and detail oriented. She is also feeling lonely and may retreat. The signs are Pisces pouting to Virgo and retreating from Sagittarius. However, Cancer and Scorpio can help Pisces, with Leo and Aries helping Sagittarius. If you had been over-spending, today you need to pay the bills. Moon goes into Scorpio early afternoon.

March 26: projects go forward very well. Relationships with those in authority, both young and older are good. Your loved one stops outing and is cooperative and there is an opportunity to either increase income or re-manage your finances.

March 28: Moon goes into Sagittarius and joins Mars for extra energy. Sun and Moon are getting along, benefitting Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Gemini may be verbally challenged, with Libra and Aquarius enjoying a good day. Virgo and Pisces could be tired and irritated from too much activity. Scorpio and Capricorn are neutral. Cancer and Taurus adjust to mildly unexpected happenings.

March 29: communication today is that of strong Aries. This means Cancer and Capricorn experience challenges, Libra is confronted, Virgo and Scorpio need to adjust and be a little more flexible. Pisces and Taurus are neutral, Leo and Sagittarius enjoy a good day; Gemini and Aquarius have the opportunity to help the others and have good communications.

Are your small appliances breaking?

Why are your appliances breaking?
17 February 2016

Many of us are experiencing small appliances that all of a sudden stop working and break. I have had three that have had to be replaced. Thank goodness, the new ones are working. The computers are also slower than normal.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field on Feb. 16th, sparking more than 24 hours of G1-class geomagnetic storms. Around the Arctic Circle, the light show was fantastic.

After peaking during the late hours of Feb. 16th, the storm is subsiding. However, NOAA forecasters say there is a 55% chance of renewed storming on Feb. 17th as Earth continues to move through the solar wind stream. Arctic sky watchers should remain alert for auroras. 

The solar wind causes electric malfunctions because of the high-energy magnetic field which causes radio blackouts and electrical glitches. The solar wind also compresses the earth's magnetic field which can cause weird emotions and reactions.

Justice Scalia’s passing

And the USA horoscope.

The chart I use for the USA is the Sibley chart corrected for hurricane Sandy, which has the ascendant at 15 degrees Sagittarius 18 minutes; give or take a few minutes. This chart is called USA Sandy.

Justice Scalia’s passing was in the news 13 February, saying he died in his sleep after he retired on Friday, 12 February. In looking at the transiting planets, it seems he died very peacefully on the 12th. Perhaps on the soul level, Justice Scalia knew or thought that his contribution to the United States was complete. On 16 February, there could be an observance with 17 February continuing the somber mood and possibly another observance.

The transit on 11 February reveals communication challenges in the legal & public sector and the Supreme Court. This will repeat 28 July 2016. The challenge is to let go and the Supreme Court did announce several cases they will not hear. With Justice Scalia’s death, the remaining cases before the Court are uncertain because of the even split between the conservative and liberal Justices.

The United States just finished a transit of uncertainty, change and chaos that ended 13 February 2016. This cycle began mid-April and repeated mid-August of 2015. With the uncertainty fading, the population may feel better and the work force less chaotic. There had been a push for unrealistic or idealistic ideas for change in the work force, the schools and reveals politically correctness. This should fade out now, with the better of the ideas put into action.

The population is becoming more serious and should be more responsible for itself. However, the other side of this energy is to become depressed or have health issues; for a country it would be health care concerns. This repeats May and November 2016. At the same time, Saturn is creating an opportunity for national stability if responsibility and common sense prevail. This was exact on 9 February, repeats May and November of this year of 2016. Saturn also reveals the President must adjust to things as they are, not as he expected, because of subtle change.. This was exact on 22 January and repeats the end of May and toward the end of October 2016, this year.

The progressed Moon of the United States’ chart changes from Scorpio to Sagittarius the 22nd of February, this month. Focus changes to the law, foreign relations, trade and religion. The energy will be from behind the scenes, though, until the end of May 2017.

Some astrology: transiting Saturn in the sign of Sagittarius is conjunct the ascendant of the USA Sandy chart, transiting Neptune in the sign of Pisces is square the USA natal Uranus in the sign of Gemini. This is the cycle that ended 13 February 2016. Transiting Jupiter in the sign of Virgo is square the USA natal Mars in the sign of Gemini. Transiting Venus in the sign of Capricorn was opposite natal Mercury in the sign of Cancer in the USA chart. Transiting Saturn will be exactly on the ascendant 17 February when there may be an observance. Justice Scalia died on the 12th when transiting Venus was opposite the United States natal Mercury. Mercury is the patron planet of the 7th house, where Gemini is on the cusp, of legalities, the public, enemies & allies, and is also the patron planet of the 9th house of the Supreme Court where Virgo is intercepted.

Republicans are symbolized by Jupiter and Sagittarius.

Democrats symbolized by Saturn and Capricorn.
Socialism is symbolized by Uranus and Aquarius.

Valentine Day 2016 and how it will treat you

Valentine's Day is always February 14

Valentine's Day is always in the sign of Aquarius. 

The love of Aquarius is inclusive, accepting, free, friendly and non-jealous. Aquarius love does not bind or own you. Aquarius love accepts you as you are and does not ask you to be different or to change. Aquarius love allows and encourages you to have friends in addition to being their partner. Aquarius love accepts your sense of freedom to be yourself and to be involved in the activities you enjoy. Aquarius love is not jealous or suffocating.

Of course, Aquarius love expects you to treat them the same way. That is to accept them as they are, quirks and all and don't ask them to change. Aquarius love expects you to enjoy their friends, no matter how kooky they may seem and not resent their time with their friends, even if that means time away from you. Aquarius love does not understand jealousy or ownership of them as a person. Let them be free.

With that said, how does Aquarian love on February 14 this year interact with your astrology sign? Basically Aquarius is the lover. Leo is the lovee who loves drama and extravagance which Aquarius may give in an unusual way. Scorpio and Taurus could experience a more friendly day than romantic. Gemini and Libra enjoy a day of friends and communication. Aries and Sagittarius have opportunities for creative social time. Cancer and Virgo can expect the mildly unexpected and adjust to it. Capricorn and Pisces are generally neutral.
However, every year the planets are in different signs, so let's look at this year's Valentine's Day planets and how they may treat you:
The Moon and Mars will be in the signs of Taurus and Scorpio respectively, and Mercury will have just gone the sign of Aquarius on 14 February. This means Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius could have emotional control issues that include Leo. Libra, Gemini and Aquarius have good communications. Virgo and Capricorn have a smooth day; Cancer and Pisces have the opportunity for good emotions. Communication for Cancer and Virgo is not as expected.

Venus and Pluto will be in the sign of Capricorn and Jupiter will be in Virgo. This indicates a good day for Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Capricorn should be energized to be a little more demonstrative. Scorpio and Pisces have the opportunity for a quiet interlude. Aries, Cancer and Libra have a day of change.

Saturn will be in the sign of Sagittarius, causing Sagittarius to be a little more serious, but giving Aries and Leo a  quietly good day. Uranus will be in the sign of Aries, revealing good change and good social day for Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Libra and Aquarius enjoy stability, with Gemini perhaps interacting with an older person. There could be a surprise for Cancer and Libra.

Neptune will be in Pisces, which enhances Pisces creativity and romanticism. This indicates a nice, romantic day for Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Taurus and Capricorn have the opportunity for a romantic day if they will allow it, with Virgo experiencing a romantic partner who may want to escape from work or tasks. This could be an irritating day for Gemini and Sagittarius if they do not appreciate someone being late or seemingly not focused. Neptune's influence with Aquarius and Aries is neutral.

These are general indications. For a quick interpretation of your Valentine Day,
