Summaries for the month's of:

~ August '2017'~

The month of December looks rather benign. We will have Mercury turning retrograde shortly before the Solstice, however, when properly used the energy of Retrograde Mercury can be helpful in many ways. I find that at that time I often hear from friends I have not seen in a while. Perhaps this is because I have an 11th house (home of hopes friends and wishes) Mercury.  Look to your own chart if you have one and see where Mercury falls in it. You can predict much of the effect of any planetary transit by examining where it is placed in a chart.

Besides the Sun as usual, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all change signs this month. Both Mercury and Uranus change direction. Mercury leaves philosophical Sagittarius for practical Capricorn on the 2nd. Venus leaves calculating Capricorn for inventive Aquarius on the 7th, and Mars eaves unpredictable Aquarius for compassionate Pisces on the 19th, the same day Mercury turns Retrograde. Expect the unexpected that day. It is best not to plan anything too complicated or vigorous for the 19th

For the entire month Jupiter is in Libra, bringing opportunities to learn more about marriage, relationships and the law. Saturn is in Sagittarius, creating responsibilities for teachers, philosophers, social workers, and religious organizations. Uranus is in Aries, turning direct on the 29th, and unexpected startups, beginnings, and innovations are highlighted.  Neptune is in Pisces and we are either easily mislead by our illusions or have the opportunity to see through them. Pluto is in Capricorn bringing pressure for change to bear on politics, business, and organizations that oversee these.

The Full Moon takes place on the 13th, in Gemini, highlighting communication. This is an opportunity to assess with whom we communicate and eliminate what may no longer be a good way to do so. Perhaps too there we can purge our emails of unwanted mail, or go through old correspondence to see if it is useful or needs to be discarded. The New Moon in Capricorn takes place the day Uranus turns direct and could be an interesting day for sure. New Moons are good for new beginnings, however since Mercury will be retrograde we may wish to resurrect what we formerly began and see how it works now. 

Significant days for accomplishment are the 1st, with Mars/Jupiter trine, 6th with mars/Uranus opportunity sextile, the 10th with a Sun/Saturn conjunction, the 24th with a Saturn/Uranus trine, the 25th with a Venus/Jupiter trine, the 28th with a Sun/Mercury conjunction and a Mercury/Mars sextile. Be alert and mindful on the 19th when Mercury goes retrograde, the 26th with a Jupiter/Uranus opposition fueling a potential for odd surprises, and the 29th with Uranus turning Direct and possibly bringing more peculiar behaviors and or surprises to the New Moon.

~ July '2017'~

The long hot days of summer are upon us. It's best to take it easy now and not over exert yourself. Try to enjoy the water--whether ocean, lake or brook. We begin the month with the Sun in Cancer, the Cardinal or executive Water sign. Mercury begins in that sign also, though it changes to Leo in a few days. Venus remains in Gemini until the very end of the month, however Mars spends about two thirds of the month in Cancer before moving into fiery Leo. We feel more sensitive during this sign, and kinder. Cancers are usually empathetic and often provide comfort and solace to others. Leo brings out our playful side.

Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are all still retrograde, signaling a slowdown to the energy of change and allowing us to solidify what we may be building. Saturn reflects structure, and its energy can be helpful for reinforcing and strengthening what have been and are actually or symbolically building. Neptune is a symbol for our higher aspirations and desires, when it is retrograde it is easier to meditate. Pluto is all about transformation via rebirth or regeneration, however the seed must burst for the seedling's roots and leaves to come forth. When Pluto is retrograde the change happening is hidden beneath the surface.

The full Moon in Capricorn takes place on the 9th, signaling some kind of political and/or business excitement or conclusion. The next period of two weeks will be ideal for purging anything like old business papers or accounts, straightening up and making order by discarding what you no longer need or want. Saturn ruled Capricorn loves order and clarity. The New Moon in Leo is on the 23rd.  This is an excellent time to initiate creative projects, romance, or opportunities for play. Vacations or enjoyable times planned for then can be extra fun. Creative projects can flourish, as can romance. The two weeks from new to full Moon are ideal for planting and increasing.

Times to be mindful and use the energy wisely are the 2nd with a forceful Mars/Pluto opposition, the 4th with a disruptive Mercury/Uranus square, the 10th with a distracting Sun/Pluto opposition, the 17th with a deceptive Venus/Neptune square and an impactful Mars/Uranus square, the 20th, with a strenuous Sun/Uranus Square, and the 24th with a difficult Venus/Saturn opposition. Best to move carefully, especially with regard to Mars and Uranus around machinery, tools or automobiles. To use the energy well plan to tackle difficult tasks reflective of these energies.

Times to plan for fun and enjoyment are the 5th, with a spiritual Sun/Neptune trine and an expansive Sun/Jupiter square, the 18th with a lucky Venus/Jupiter trine, the 19th with an efficient Mercury/Saturn trine, the 24th with an inventive Mercury/Uranus trine and the 26th with an energetic Sun/Mars conjunction.

~ June'2016'~

June presents us with an interesting mix of aspects, as well as the fast pace of Mercury as it speeds through three signs during the month. A multiplicity of communications will be featured in a variety of ways, especially on the Full Moon when Jupiter turns direct. As well, Neptune turns retrograde, mid month, keeping the ratio of three retrograde planets in force.

There is something for everyone as the planets dance about the heavens, with significant aspects on 18 of the 30 days of this month. This means that energetically there will be many opportunities to make use of the planetary energies as is appropriate. Use the felicitous aspects to enhance or forward your projects, use the stressful ones to gain strength as you practice patience or forbearance as needed.

Aspects involving Mercury imply communication and discussion, sometimes also arguments; those involving Venus help bring choices to the fore. Mars aspects relate to use of energy either for building or striving; when the Sun is involved individual efforts can be better focused. Saturn can provide energy for structure or obstruction, Jupiter for expansion or explosion. How we apply ourselves to any situation is paramount to the outcome.

Pluto implies deaths or destruction resulting in rebirth or rebuilding; Uranus brings change—often unexpected, resulting from breakthroughs. Neptune suggests the need to see clearly and to be guided by the highest ideals.  Because the Moon moves so quickly through the signs, its relevance refers primarily to its coloration of the energy it brings to any given day. When a sign is in retrograde motion it indicates a slowing down of the given energy.

There is no "good" or "bad" sign, aspect, or planetary indication. There is only energy to be directed by us, for whatever helpful purpose it can be. It has been my experience that when I focus my activities in harmony with the signs and aspects of the day I get more done in an effective manner than when I don't. However if I must go against the flow because of circumstances then perhaps I can learn how to better manage in spite of any obstacles.

That said, here are the suggestions for best use of energies: Days to push your luck, keep your eyes open for opportunities and pursue them: June 1, 3, 9, 12, 13 AM, 21, 23, 24, 28. Days to be more mindful, keep an eye on the (metaphorical) road, and be aware of potential lessons and learning situations: June 2, 4, 13 PM, 15, 16, 18, 25, 26, 27, 29. The 6th and the 21st are each days when 2 planets change signs—lots of energy there. Full Moon the 9th is accompanied by Jupiter's stationing direct, more energy! The New Moon on the 23rd is close to another powerful aspect for change, good timing to make use of.

~ May '2017'~

I'm sure you will all be happy to hear that from an astrological standpoint, May looks pretty easy going and pleasant. Mercury finishes up its retrograde motion in initiating Aries on the 3rd turning direct mid day. Beginnings of all sorts will go better now. On the 16th it moves into Taurus, and our thoughts and discussions turn in more materialistic directions. The Sun begins the month in steady Taurus, fine for continuing with what has already been begun and moves to Gemini on the 20th, providing airy bounce after the groundedness of earthy Taurus.

Venus is in showy Aries all month; expect stores to present fashion innovations and new colors for the season. Our choices will tend toward acquiring what is new and trendy rather than what is tried and true. Mars is in facile Gemini all month. Innovations and developments in communication may be emphasized. Activity around anything involving communication or transportation might also be highlighted.  Jupiter remains retrograde in Libra: legal matters could be slowed. Saturn is still retrograde in Sagittarius; educational matters could be also.

Uranus is direct in Aries and Neptune is direct in Pisces. Neither makes any strong aspects with other heavy planets this month. Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn still, however there is not much importance to that except that it might slow the effects of change on politics and business. There is a lot of foot dragging in those areas as it is. However, as the saying goes: the mills of the gods grind slowly but they grind exceedingly fine. August may be an interesting month because for part of the month four of the five "heavies" will be retrograde along with Mercury.  

The Full Moon in Scorpio takes place on the 10th, and the day before the sun trines Pluto and early that day Mercury conjuncts Uranus. Mars squares Neptune on the 11th. There could be some interesting events or occurrences in the days surrounding the 10th. For the two weeks after the full Moon eliminating and concluding are featured. For the two weeks after the new Moon on the 25th , initiatory actions and accumulation are featured. 

Special days to be used well: the 3rd with Mercury direct, the 9th with Sun/Pluto trine, 10th with Uranus/Mercury conjunct, the 11th with Mercury/Saturn trine, the 12th with Mars/Jupiter trine, the 18th and 19th with Saturn/Uranus trine, the 31st with Mercury/Pluto trine. Be especially mindful on these days: the 11th with Mars/Neptune square, the 25th with Venus/Pluto square, the 29th with Mars/Saturn opposition. You can check my website for particulars on the best use of the energy at www.heartwingslovenotes.com  on these or other days according to which sign the Moon is in.

~ April '2017'~

The dance of the heavens this month is active. Besides the Aries Sun's segue into Taurus on the 19th, Mercury, Mars, and Venus all change signs. Then on the 9th Mercury, on the 6th, Saturn and Pluto on the 20th all turn retrograde. Retrograde Venus now turns direct on the 15th. With Pluto at a virtual standstill all month, change and upheaval may be mostly below the surface. With Mercury in retrograde much will come up for review, retooling and return. At that time I often hear from people I haven't heard from for a while.

Beginning the month in Aries, the Sun oversees innovation and startups. In Taurus work begun continues, practicality is in the air. Mercury begins in earthy Taurus then backs into innovative Aries on the 20th for a review of what has been begun. Venus, retrograde in gentle Pisces seeks connections with the past, continues in direct motion to find mystical connections then on the 28th dances into April and craves newness. Saturn slows into retrograde the 5th, urging greater care with structure, while Pluto slows change and renewal all month. 

So while April is a month for beginnings, they are likely to be of a different nature, more about affirming direction, chasing details to solidify what has been begun, and allowing for a slow but steady building toward a climax that could come as late as the fall—possibly around the equinox. This is not to say that nothing will happen, of course, only that the sum of the parts may be delayed. Meanwhile it is vital to practice redoing, restoring, reviewing, reforming, replacing, revising and so forth during the retrograde period, ending May 3.  Needless to say this is a poor time to purchase anything you do not actually need if you can possibly avoid it.

The Full Moon in Libra shines on Passover, on the 11th of April. The following two weeks will be good times to beautify your surroundings by removing whatever obscures that beauty and instead revealing what has been hidden. The New Moon in Taurus shines on the 26th, when it will be your opportunity to initiate music lessons, new craft projects, garden plans and refurbishments, and polish up your jewelry. Major aspects are few this month, so the emphasis on any one—especially the ones involving Pluto or Uranus may be greater.

Days to be mindful of a potential for stress include the 6th when Saturn turns retrograde, 7th and 8th a Venus/Saturn Square, 9th when Mercury turns retrograde, 20th Pluto turns retrograde, 21st Venus/Saturn square. Days to enjoy good vibrations include the 5th and 6th Mars/Pluto Trine, 7th Sun/Jupiter opposition, 14th Sun/Uranus conjunction—great for surprises! The 16th Venus/Mars sextile, 16/17 Mercury trine Saturn, 28th Mercury/Uranus Conjunction invent something

~ March '2017'~

There's an unusual focus on Mercury aspects in March.  Pisces Mercury at the start focuses on winding up communications, conversations, discussions. On the 4th conjunct Neptune makes for a potentially confusing day, on the 6th, conjunct the Sun, a bright cheerful day; on the 8th sextile Pluto, revelations or mysteries surface or are solved; on the 12th, squared by Saturn a serious day with a potential for obstacles.

On the 13th Mercury enters Aries and focus is on all things new and trendy. On the 18th Mercury Venus conjunct makes a felicitous day for proposals. On the 23rd, square Pluto could mean bad weather, bad news or both. On the 24th opposing Jupiter: truth or lies revealed; on the 26th, conjunct Uranus potential explosions! on the 29th trine Saturn, responsible reactions, and on the 31st, Mercury enters Taurus for a steady, strong journey forward.  

Venus in Aries all month turns retrograde on the 9th, we may be rethinking choices, redoing wardrobes: going over jewelry and clothing to see what we want to keep and what we what to get rid of. Venus is all about choices, for or against. Some decisions may come up for review and perhaps revision, especially if made impulsively, with Venus in Aries this is always a possibility. Sun conjunct Venus on the 25th makes for a very sweet day.

Mars changes signs this month, beginning the month in Aries, good for initiating action, then on the 9th moving into Taurus, which helps continue what we have begun. Projects begun during Aries Mars , especially if they are innovative or inventive get a good boost. On the other hand when Mars is in Aries it is easier to be careless or impulsive, so be mindful on the road or when handling sharp tools.  On the 5th Mars trines Saturn making for a great day for accomplishment.

The Sun begins the month in Pisces. This is the finishing up time of year so that we can be ready for the initiation of a new season as well sa a new Solar year. Wind up any projects, clear out debris and be ready when the Sun moves into Aries for the Equinox on the 20th, ushering in spring. This is just the beginning, though; we can't expect the warmth of it for a while. At least the days will be of equal length. The hours of daylight advance from that date on until Midsummer in June. 

The Full Moon in Virgo on the 12th is shadowed by a Mercury Saturn square. This could either cramp her expansive style, or enhance the sense of duty and responsibility Virgo brings to the table. The New Moon on the 26th is preceded by a Mercury Uranus conjunction the day before. This makes me wonder if there will be some unusual or mind blowing news, revelations or activity around transportation or communication over the next day or two.

~ February '2017'~

Besides the Sun's normal move between Aquarius and Pisces on the 18th, only Mercury and Venus change signs this month. Mercury begins the month in organized, ambitious Capricorn helping us with good, spot on focus. On the 7th it enters original, out-of-the box Aquarius helping with inventions, clever solutions and altruistic ideas. Venus is briefly in compassionate Pisces and on the 3rd enters Fashion loving Aries, urging us to seek out what is new and original.

Mars in Aries all month encourages startups, new ways of doing, and beginnings of al kinds. Saturn still in Sagittarius may bring out pressure and structure on generosity.  We begin February with no planets in retrograde motion. On the 6th Jupiter makes its station and turns retrograde indicating delayed rewards and/or the retracing of past relationships. The two eclipses this month are probably the most significant of the astrological events in February.

The Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon in Leo takes place on the 10th, suggesting that we review and dispense with any outgrown love relationships or excessively egoic attitudes we may have developed. Examine attitudes toward children or those whom you may parent or treat like your children and assess your generosity—are you over-giving or manipulative in your attitudes? Do you give more than you receive and need to rebalance or reassess the relationship?

 For the Solar eclipse of the New Mon in Pisces on the 26th, note that it is accompanied by a conjunction of Mars with Uranus and might be an explosive day. Check any bridges you are tempted to burn and postpone that action for a day or so to be quite sure it is appropriate. On the other hand there is wonderful energy now for any new, compassionate, generous, spiritually oriented project you may wish to begin. If there are karmic issues of which you are aware, address them with positive action.

Days to be mindful include the1st and 2nd, with a Mercury/Jupiter square saying beware of exaggeration or even lies. On the 21st and 22nd an explosive Mars/Pluto square in forceful Aries/Capricorn might be useful if you wish to make difficult or stressful changes. This is a break-through aspect. Be flexible; if you encounter stress with resistance you may not fare well. On the 26th with the Solar Eclipse, Mars is conjunct Uranus in Aries. For best effect, this heavily loaded energy needs to be focused or channeled into the new and unusual.

Days to push your luck include opportunity sextiles on the 9th with Sun/Uranus, the 14th with Sun/Saturn, the 16th with Mercury/Mars, the 20th with Mercury/Uranus. Try new or different solutions and explore new potential. On the 10th and 11th a Sun/Jupiter trine brings a nice day to get married or just have fun. For the 21st Mercury/Jupiter trine plan traveling, meetings or discussions.

~ January '2017'~

Full Moon on the 12th in Cancer shines on hospitality, families, and loving care. New Moon on the 27th in Aquarius initiates an altruistic path and brings the potential for new friendships. Mercury turns direct on the 8th, signaling the go ahead for beginnings. Briefly in philosophical Sagittarius from the 4th to the 12th, it continues in practical Capricorn. Venus into mystical Pisces on the 3rd, softens Aquarian eccentricity, making for sweeter choices. Sun in ambitious Capricorn gives way to altruistic Aquarius on the 19th. Mars in compassionate Pisces until the 28th, goes into aggressive Aries, sharpening the prevailing energy.

From an astrological standpoint January appears rather uneventful. Pluto is not in aspect to Uranus, none of the heavy planets will be making a station and then turning in either direction: retrograde or direct. Mars in Pisces has pulled ahead of Venus in Pisces, assuring the planet of choice that she can take her time making decisions; Saturn is in pleasant aspect to Jupiter. The planets provide a variety of potential for us all this month with opportunities to make progress.

Sextiles are opportunity aspects. The 3rd has Mercury sextile Venus, useful to communicate wants and needs. The 10th and 11th has Mars sextile Pluto, an opportunity to make changes with small effort; the 20th Venus sextiles Pluto, allows us to review and revise choices that could need changing; the 23rd holds a Mercury sextile Neptune bringing an opportunity to look more closely at the real truth of any situation that could be presenting itself; taken together that's giving us all a weekly chance to make use of planetary energy to help us do better.

Squares present us with lessons and chances to turn stumbling blocks into stepping-stones. Sun square Uranus on the 10th suggests you might act without thinking, however if you slow down you'll learn something. The 11th with sun square Jupiter you could be given to excess; if you are mindful you could save yourself from discomfort.  The 19th Mars squares Jupiter suggesting if you push, as you might be tempted to do, you could lose out but if you are patient you stand to gain. The 31st Mercury square Uranus implies a need for taking time to think rather than speaking too soon and messing up. The day before any aspect can also be energetically active in this way.

Conjunctions combine the energies of two planets to make an impact. On the 1st, Mars conjuncts Neptune: beware being misled by what appears before us and acting too quickly. Alcohol, drugs or desire can blind us to the truth. On the 6th and 7th, Sun conjuncts Pluto: a strong day to create important or deep changes. On the 12th, Venus conjunct Neptune brings a strong psychic energy to the day. Clarity regarding choices is also featured. On the 29th Mercury conjuncts Pluto. Important communications are featured and could have a strong impact. It might be important to be mindful of one's words and even one's thoughts.
