Pluto and Juno Together With the Sun Right Now

This holiday week we have a funky conjunction in the sky. Pluto, the Sun and Juno are all in conjunction in the sign of Capricorn. I said funky, I should have said a confusing conjunction. Pluto and the Sun together brings and energy to changing ourselves; to "focus like a laser beam" on making ourselves into the person we always wanted to be. Capricorn is a sign that is all about doing things by the book. Develop a plan and follow it to the letter is what Capricorn is good at. So you can see this is a pretty good placement to have at the end of the year when we are working on resolutions and promising to be better in the New Year.

Juno thrown into the picture is a bit odd. Juno and the Sun together is intense loyalty toward a relationship. Juno was the consort goddess in mythology. In the best of worlds this is a good time to work on your relationship with another person together - what can WE do to change to make this relationship work together. Of course, this could disintegrate into well I am doing this what are YOU doing? However, let's be positive about this and see it as a time to work together to make things work better for both.

Happy New Year.

"End of the World" Chart

Oh come on you knew I was going to have to do it. Apparently the Mayans predicted the end of the world at 4:12 AM MST December 21, 2012. Please don't ask me how they knew about time zones...but I guess if you can predict the end of the world, time zones are a snap.

We don't have much time to quibble about such details now do we. Anyway, this is a pretty drab chart.  I mean you would think the end of the world would be loaded with 8th house planets - that house being the house of death, change and transformation and all. But the only thing there is Ceres the Earth Mother, nurturer. Not exactly the Grim Reaper is she.

Saturn is transiting the 12th house - the house where we connect to "god" - and Saturn is all about doing things by the book so perhaps the Mayans were trying to tell us it is a good time to be more serious about our spirituality. That isn't a bad idea in light of the madness of recent weeks.

Scorpio will be rising and that is the sign that vibrates to the 8th house so this is a good time to set some good spiritual practices in place. However, nothing else here tells me that we should all be spending our last dollar and dancing our last jig -- or procrastinating with Christmas shopping any longer.

Hanukkah Chart

Hanukkah always falls on the same date in the Jewish calendar. It is when we mesh that calendar with the Western calendar that the days move around. This year it begins the way, next year it starts on November 27!

The Jewish calendar is lunar so let's take a look at the Moon tonight. The chart above is calculated for sundown, which is 4:28 PM EST today, December 8. Fittingly, the Moon is in Libra, in the 5th house. Since this is a holiday of gifts, fun and celebration, Libra - the sign of friendship and sharing with the other person is a good sign for the Moon to be in. The 5th house is the house where we express our creativity - where we have fun and are kids so be a kid tonight on Hanukkah!

Just beware of gossipy family members! The ascendant is in Gemini - the sign of communications - and it's ruler, Mercury is in Scorpio - the sign that loves to ferret out secrets. Because Mercury is in the 6th house - the house of work and health - be careful not to tell that snoopy old aunt you hate your job or your feet hurt if you don't want it spread around the family like wild fire. Jupiter and Vesta in retrograde on the ascendant will make people want to share a bit too much.

With Juno, the asteroid of loyalty in the 7th house, the house of intimate relationships - be sure to have lots of people who REALLY mean something to you over this year. Show and tell them how much you really love them.

And Happy Holidays all!!!

What's going on with Giza and the planets tomorrow?

Earthly Color - Arlene Weinstock

The past few years we have had some interesting planetary shifts - Neptune into Pisces, Pluto into Capricorn, etc. Tomorrow night is another unique planetary alignment - one that allegedly happens only once every 2700 years. On the evening of December 3  - tomorrow night - local time, over the pyramids of Giza, Venus, Saturn and Mars will align directly over each pyramid of Giza. 

Frankly, I have a hard time believing like some folks that the pyramids were built just for this once every two thousand year occurrence. I have no doubt these ancient structures like many in other parts of the world were built to track the planets but I don't place any special emphasis on this. 

It is interesting however to know that this is happening. Closer to home, however, These three planets are all in Scorpio and on the East Coast are in the 5th and 6th houses - the houses of creativity and health. This would be a perfect time to use the expressiveness of Mercury, the artistic talent of Venus and the tenacity of Saturn to go inwards (a Scorpio thing) and find how you can work on these areas. I mean pyramids are cool but I like working on things I can relate to a bit more!
