" The Journey of
the Spiritual Warrior Begins "
The Year 2011 presents
us with visions that promise prosperity and growth for a larger
sector of the populace through innovation and advancement.
Great hope must confront the force of deep-rooted resistance
and political hypocrisy; yet the year ends with us moving toward
needed economic and cultural reorganization.
During January, tensions
between the needs for revolution and the need for stability
are heightened in the midst of feverish idealism or fanaticism.
However, there is promise in a prevailing Jupiter /Neptune
trine to bring true idealism, spiritual love, and hope this
month and throughout the year. Yet the tendency to use the
need for safety and security to promote and enforce a dictatorial
faith and fanaticism can lead to explosions from the more repressed
and suppressed corners. Especially at the end of the month
as Mars joins Pluto (the 28th) in the fervent fire sign of
Sagittarius, we are more prone to violent reactions.
February is marked
by Mars entering Capricorn (the 6th) and, unfortunately, can
wave on the warmongers. Yet intellectual breakthroughs may
bring science into serious service for mankind. The agenda
for any one particular group, or class, looks pale in the light
of the vision of a fair world. And security and safety appear
to be weaker and weaker excuses for inhumanity to humanity.
There may be some peace-keeping strides accomplished near mid-February,
as we continue to be blessed with trines from Aquarius and
Libra. Yet with Saturn and Uranus ‘rubbing each other
the wrong way’, stress management prevails as a constant
prerequisite on our plates, personally, socially, and globally.
An eventful March
offers some warm and peaceful emotions from a New Moon in Pisces
(the 10th) conjunct Venus both trining Saturn in Cancer. Yet
Mars in Capricorn opposing Saturn on the 7th bodes some ‘head
butting’ kind of trouble. The second half of the month
may usher in some spirited attempts at healing as Mars enters
Aquarius and conjoins Chiron. Underneath surface impressions
some true elevation of human spirit is indeed taking place.
Behind the mirage of people blaming people, there is a growing
force of those looking within. The Vernal Equinox of March
sets the stage for the spring and this year suggests both passionate
healing and passionate fighting. An inspiring trine between
Jupiter and Neptune continues to hover over offering hope,
vision, and guidance.
A Total Solar Eclipse
highlights the spring on April 8th. Falling in the rambunctious
sign of Aries, this eclipse presents cathartic social growth.
Those of the far political and religious right may find it
difficult to curtail the explosive developments in the evolution
of the human species, socially, sexually, and spiritually.
Relationship issues may be volatile, as security concerns seem
to oppress rather than provide, safety.
A new spring exercise routine is highly supported by this New
Moon Eclipse in Aries opposite Jupiter so take the opportunity
to get a new start. Another April eclipse (Penumbral Lunar
Eclipse on the 24th) falls with the Moon in Scorpio in opposition
to the Sun and Venus in the sensual sign of Taurus. Strong
suggestions of Goddess Gaia energy can provide us a haven
in nature, in gardening, and in a particularly prolific display
of spring flowers. Creativity will flourish this month for
both the artist and the ‘would be’ artist. Although
the battle between security and freedom continues through
out the world, there seems to be a new twist of innovation
surfacing to tilt the scales toward the truth of freedom,
change, and political invention.
Both of April’s eclipses suggest some catharsis in relationships.
We can be inspired to new arrangements early in the month and
then toward the second eclipse have to grapple with the question
of whether we can achieve a ‘win-win’. It becomes
more and more apparent that media and communication systems
within the US need some checks and balances. The themes of
both secrecy and deception of the American public gather attention
yet the majority suffers from lack of exposure to anything
else. It is a good time to seek information from international
sources be it radio, newspapers, etc in order to get a balanced
view. April and May can be the time when some previously distorted
reports of US domestic and international moves are revealed.
May could be a month of doubts and fears as the New Moon in
Taurus (the 8th) arrives in square to Neptune, and the pessimism
of a Mercury/Saturn square challenge individuals to practice
faith and hope. Mid-month may bring a resurgence of violent
outbreaks as Mars conjuncts Uranus in Pisces and we seem
to be bankrupt of any political or religious passions not
based on self-serving greed. Our oceans or ocean life may
express disturbance now. This is the time to pull out the
slogan ‘ let peace begin with me’, and keep it
On a positive note, a New Moon in Gemini (June 6th) comes with
a beautiful trine of the Sun and Moon to Neptune. These air
sign trines stir our imaginations, hopes, dreams, and leave
us talking to angels or ET’s in our dreams (or is it
a dream?). Perhaps ‘angelic intervention’ may be
called wishful thinking by some, but hope vision, and spiritual
support is there, in some fashion or another. There may also
be a rise of a new patriotism, religious fervor, or downright
fanaticism across the world but also across the U.S.
At the time of the Summer Solstice we now have Mars in Aries
opposing Jupiter and squaring the Sun – spiriting new
fires and battles. But the hope Neptune trines promise in
the New Moon chart of June suggests to us that spiritual
support, love, and truth are here, visible or not.
For those interested in an artistic showing, or those whose
place is on the stage, a special spotlight begins to shine
In July as Venus and Mercury in Leo aspect Uranus and the
planet Saturn enters Leo. Powerful energies move projects
forward with gusto as Mars trines Pluto, yet we could also
see a steamroller effect of the strong over the weak. The
stresses may increase at month’s end and as August
rolls in as Mars squares Saturn. Try to capture the best
of this month’s energies by expressing something that
is special about you, and by being pro-active toward goals
In the New Moon chart of August 4th the Sun, Moon, and Mercury
oppose sleepy Neptune suggesting we are either truly inspired
or truly deluded. A Mars/Neptune square at the end of the
month suggests the further exposition of deceptions and revealing
of secrets. Sometimes it appears some unseen force is guiding
us to more and more truth and bringing more and more light
to the lies told. Frictions over oil resources may be particularly
suspect. New technological developments in fashion combine
the electronic with beautification both in clothing design
and body alterations.
The New Moon of September opposes Uranus and portends great
change; as tensions surface ‘something’s gotta
give’. Stress management is at the top of the list and
may require prioritizing and downsizing. Trying to do too many
things increases the stress so cross things off your list before
you even start your day!
A wonderful conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in Libra lend
romance and beauty - and with both sextiling Pluto there’s
also potential for very great impact so…. show your
talent and…pronounce your love!
At the time of the Autumnal Equinox (9/22), some harmony may
descend in political arenas with the improved communication
reflected in a Mercury/Sun trine to the Moon in air signs.
Venus, the planet of love, in the passionate sign of Scorpio
brings new light to chronic issues of opposing ideals.
Two eclipses in October highlight relationship and the turning
away from old patterns in favor of new ones. Libra is highlighted
in both eclipses (Annular Solar – Oct 3rd, and Partial
Lunar on Oct 17th). Yet as decisions are being made about
relationships and the desire for change mounts with Venus
square Uranus, the confusion of a Mercury/Neptune square
makes it difficult to break through chronic dysfunctional
patterns. Still, some new bonds of considerable strength
survive and prove durable, and can take hold with a’ love
at first sight’ suddenness.
Beauty has its day this month, flourishing in all the Libran
energy and enhanced by a Venus/Uranus square, so advancing
artwork, or having a ‘make over’ or beautifying
home or garden, are sure to be success stories.
November’s New Moon in Scorpio falls on the 1st in opposition
to Mars in Taurus. Economic issues proceed, attempting to upswing
through new business lines, technology, and foreign stimulation.
A radical Jupiter/Uranus trine suggests some breakthroughs
(or breakouts) in spite of restrictions and oppositions from ‘powers
But as December rolls around the stress over limited growth
options re-ignites the ongoing conflict between age-old economic
strong holds and innovative, inclusive policies of the humanitarian
sectors. Powerful energies of December, including a Mars/Jupiter
opposition, and a Sun/Moon trine Saturn suggest some solid
agreements and compromises can be pushed through and satisfy
both the practical and ideal.
Know that we are challenged; you don’t need astrology
to know that. But as 2009 continues to increase intensities
of our challenges, a guiding light and an unseen force of wisdom
is also there for us to access.
During 2006 Jupiter
will square both Saturn and Neptune, keeping the counterpoint
between growth and resistance, and challenging mankind to greater
