Libra (September 22 to October 23)


SOME SET-UP INFO ON RETROGRADE PLANETS Planets move forward in degrees from 00 degrees 00 minutes 00 seconds . . . to 29 degrees 59 minutes 59 seconds. There are 60 minutes in 1 degree. At 59 minutes 59 seconds, the next second that ticks away fulfills 1 degree. When 30 degrees is satisfied then the planet moves into the next sign at 00 degrees 00 minutes. When the planet Retrogrades it goes backward in degrees. Now come on, a planet never really does move backward, that is just an illusion from a shadow cast on the planet making it appear as though it is moving backward. IT'S NOT REAL FOLKS! It's an illusion but our reaction to it is very real. It's like being at a stop Light and the car next to you moves forward a bit and it makes you feel like you are moving backward, suddenly you panic and hit the brake but you are sitting still. It's weird! Retrograde planets cause us to be 'reactionary' but when you get 'the get' of the illusion, then it's all cool, rose posey and you make progress in your Life. After the Retrograde period, the planet turns Direct and begins to move forward in degrees once again.

If you have been coming to this website long enough, then you know that I do not see Retrogrades as a bad thing. Fearful astrology is stupid and it is trickery from those begging for attention or pandering for business. Those who use astrology fearfully ought to be ashamed of themselves. All Retrograde planets are a period of a 'do-over'. There should be no freak-out-ed-ness in a Retrograde status. Re-trace your steps and make it better and put the brakes on the dramatization. You should be excited about a Retrograde planet because it is essentially the Universe giving you a 'do-over' before you progress forward. You are getting a 1st, 2nd and 3rd chance to make things right during a Retrograde period. A planet moves over a set of degrees (1st time), then it turns Retrograde and goes over those same degrees again (2nd time) and then it turns Direct and moves forward again going over those same degrees again (3rd time). Look at that, the Universe gives you 3 chances to get straight and fly right. Seriously, it doesn't get better than that. Seriously, how nice of the Universe! As a bunch of misfit humans, WE NEED THESE RETROGRADES, so take them when they come and use the Retrograde (do-over) wisely. Retrograde planets are meant to help you back-track, regroup, rewind, rejuvenate and get your life back on track. Retrogrades are basically saying, "Hey you! Yeah, YOU! I'm talkin' to You! Get your freakin' act together!" You see folks, we all need this, so take it!

Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 7;27 AM EST we will experience a Full Moon in Gemini. This Full Moon has the theme of 'a sudden change for the better' accompanying it because it forms a trine to Uranus in Aries. Typically when there is a Full Moon you will see astrologers and astrology neophytes writing about how it's a time of release, a time to let go, a time to purge and a time to gather your old things and get rid of them once and for all. Yeah, yeah, yeah . . okay. That kind of approach bores the hell out of me. Just sayin'. I rarely ever write about a Full Moon like that because Full Moon's are so bright and full of Light and they shine an obvious Light on the issue at hand. If you cannot see that Light shining on the issue at hand, then you have to be blind or so far into denial that you can't see clearly. Emotions are very FULL during a Full Moon because the Moon rules the emotions and moods and they are typically about whatever the subject matter is for the house that it is shining on for you.

This Full Moon in Gemini is actually your 6th month check-up to the New Moon in Gemini that occurred 6 months ago on May 28, 2014. Back then, the New Moon in Gemini was impacting your 9th house of the higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations, international commerce, dreams, visions and teachers. Well now this Full Moon in Gemini is checking in with you to see how you are doing. If you had been doing your homework in this 9th house over the past 6 months and giving it its due attention, then you should be seeing a change for the better in the travel and learning areas of your Life. This is where you are both well-traveled and well-read. This makes you very well-rounded and very prepared for a new travel or learning experience, especially over the next coming 6 months. After all, this Full Moon in Gemini is accompanied by a trine from Uranus in Aries, which means a sudden change in circumstances and a trine is a wonderful thing. BAM! Pretty exciting! This lightning strike of Uranus will be a very Good turn of events for many of us, especially those of us who have been making self-corrections and stretching ourselves to do better. BAM, circumstances change!

I actually like to give Full Moons a 5-7 day orb of influence surrounding it on both sides. You may see other astrologers give it a 3-5 day orb of influence but I like to give it a bigger orb of influence to account for your intuition. When the Light shines so brilliantly on the house involved, then you get a chance to right yourself in that area. A LIGHTbulb (pun intended) should go off in your head right about now!

Monday, December 8, 2014 Jupiter turns Retrograde in Leo at 3:41 PM EST untl April 8, 2015. As stated in the top two paragraphs on this page, Retrogrades serve a wonderful purpose, which is to give us a 'do-over' before progressing forward. Retrograde planets are meant to help you back-track, regroup, rewind, rejuvenate and get your Life back on track before getting to the place that you desire to be. Let's just say that you intend to go on a trip and you leave the house but forget your wallet and airline ticket. You have taken care of everything else such as a pet sitter for the dog, someone to get your mail and you have your luggage in the car . . . BUT you forgot your wallet and airline ticket. So now you have to go all the way back home and get these two things and in the meantime you miss your plane. Now you have to call the airline and reschedule because you forgot two of the most important things. You can not go on the trip without your wallet or airline ticket. This is what Retrograde planets are like for us, they make us back-track, regroup and rewind in order to get everything we need as we head off in a certain direction in our Life. It's pretty cool that the Universe gives us 3 chances to get ourselves straightened out before we progress forward.

Back on July 17, 2014 Jupiter moved into Leo at 00 degrees 00 minutes. By July 21, 2014 Jupiter had traveled to 01 degrees, then by July 26, 2014 Jupiter had traveled to 02 degrees, then by July 30, 2014 Jupiter had traveled to 03 degrees. Fast forward to now (December 8, 2014) Jupiter has traveled to 22 degrees and now it will turn Retrograde had head backward in degrees, back-tracking over the degrees that it took to get here. It is putting itself in reverse (Retrograde) and taking the same route backward. Jupiter will keep heading backward in degrees until April 8, 2015.

December 8, 2014 - the Retrograde begins with Jupiter in Leo at 22 degrees where it has been 22 degrees from November 19 - December 8, 2014.

December 29, 2014 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 21 degrees where it was at 21 degrees back on November 7 - 18, 2014.

January 10, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 20 degrees where it was at 20 degrees back on October 29 - November 6, 2014.

January 20, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 19 degrees where it was at 19 degrees back on October 21 - 28, 2014.

January 28, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 18 degrees where it was at 18 degrees back on October 14 - 20, 2014.

February 4, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 17 degrees where it was at 17 degrees back on October 8 - 13, 2014.

February 12, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 16 degrees where it was at 16 degrees back on October 2 - 7, 2014.

February 20, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 15 degrees where it was at 15 degrees back on September 26 - October 1, 2014.

February 28, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 14 degrees where it was at 14 degrees back on September 21 - 25, 2014.

March 10, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 13 degrees where it was at 13 degrees back on September 15 - 20, 2014.

March 24, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will be at 12 degrees where it was at 12 degrees back on September 10 - 14, 2014.

April 8, 2015 - Jupiter in Leo will turn Direct at 12 degrees and begin growing in degrees starting at 12 degrees where it was back on September 10 - 14, 2014.

So basically this Retrograde period is slowly taking you back to September 10 - 14, 2014. For some reason, the Universe wants to take us back to that time period and we can not progress forward unless we go back there and make a correction or do what we forgot to do.

When Jupiter turns Direct on April 8, 2015 it will go across the degrees 12 up to 22 degrees again, which means this will be its 3rd pass over those same degrees. Forward-backward-forward. How kind of the Universe that we get 3 chances to advance ourselves before we advance our purpose. Keep these dates in mind as you continue to work your Jupiter in Leo placement, which I have written all about for your Sun Sign in your Yearly Horoscope. All of the Jupiter in Leo information still applies. You can still call in your abundance and your Life will still expand greatly, but the speed at which you do this depends on just how much you forgot to do earlier or need to do-over during this Retrograde period.
