With discomfiting transits like the Saturn-Neptune square, our goal should be to milk it for self-knowledge. How might we approach, in this spirit, the fact that the solid masses (Saturn) of Earth are melting (Neptune)?
September is an important turning point annually, and this year it is bristling with transits. If you think of transits as messages from the Cosmos — each one whispered in our ear by the planet in question — September is a month of urgent whispers. Knowing when they’re coming, we can get ready to give them the attention they deserve.
There are two eclipses: the New Moon (solar eclipse) is on the 12th, and the Full Moon (lunar eclipse) is on the 27th.… click here to continue reading.
The Saturn-Neptune square, which we’ve been feeling all year and will be strong through the autumn of 2016, is the most important transit in the sky right now. In November it will be exact to the minute of arc for the first time,(1) and we can feel the tension mounting.… click here to continue reading.

In the midst of the excitement, Jupiter stations on the 8th. Somewhere in our lives, a red light switches to green.… click here to continue reading.
It’s Venus that sets it off. She conjoins Uranus and squares Pluto on March 4th – 5th. Mars follows up even more explosively on March 11.th
Right smack in the middle of the month — around the Ides of March – the square comes to exactitude.… click here to continue reading.
Every month, the Full Moon period lasts roughly five days: 2½ days on either side of exactitude. This month, that exquisite moment of culmination — when the Moon opposes the Sun to the minute of arc — occurs right out of the gate: on Feb. 3rd (3:10 pm PST), just after our calendars have turned over their pages.
Consider the oddity of beginning the calendar month with the lunar cycle not at its beginning, but maxing out (although it happens all the time).… click here to continue reading.
