SUN WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Shine

SUN OPPORTUNITY
January 20 2016 at 10:28 AM EST until
February 19, 2016 at 12:34 AM EST

First I will address the Sun in Aquarius because the house that Aquarius rules in your personal natal chart is where you should be acting and reacting just like an Aquarius, which is why this information is so important. The the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

The Sun in Aquarius shows favoritism toward group efforts. The Sun in Aquarius is the best time for Companies to offer a moral building retreat for their employees. There is probably no better time of the year to get the employees together for a motivational pep-talk. In fact, since Aquarius is the visionary of the zodiac because they rule 'the future', hopes and wishes, this is also the best time to go on a spiritual retreat or a vision quest. Geez, you just can't beat the energy!

The energy during this period of time has everything to do with making friends, communicating within groups, networking in social media or at social gatherings or building new associations and contacts. This is a 'group effort' mentality when the Sun moves into Aquarius. This is the time where you will notice there is an overall concern or a universal concern where a meeting of the minds comes together. Aquarius

All too often the Aquarian motto of "I know therefore I am" is mistaken for just knowledge. Certainly there is an element of knowledge with this sign because Aquarius tends to know a little about everything. There is no doubt about it, these are the people you will want to stack your table with at the next trivia night. But there is more to "I know therefore I am." Remember, Aquarius is the social butterfly of the zodiac, so it's not just want they know, it's WHO they know. Aquarius has connections! The glyph for Aquarian's is represented by two curvy lines. These lines are often mistaken for water and it is thought that Aquarius is a water sign, which is NOT true. Aquarius is an air sign and when the wavy lines are pictured with the symbol of the woman, the woman is pouring energy (or knowledge) out of the vessel and not water.

Aquarian's are rather impersonal emotionally and are well known for being rather aloof and distant. It would be fair to say that Aquarian energy is detached, not attached. Remember, they have a wide circle of friends so attempting to cling to them is not going to work. Aquarian's will shake you loose if you lock on. Further, asking an Aquarian what they are doing or where they have been is even a bit too clingy, so having your own Life and not clinging to their Life is probably the best idea for all concerned. Even though Aquarian's are distant emotionally their energy sure can be like swiss cheese, meaning it is laced with holes. Picture a circle of people holding hands. The larger the circle gets the more holes in the circle. Small circles of people are tighter, large circles of people create big gaps and this is what makes an Aquarian's energy so easy to infiltrate. Anyone can get in, even those who shouldn't.

Stimulating conversation with an Aquarian is a required or you will be discarded. It's as simple as that. Aquarius certainly has the chops for stirring up a revolution or creating a rebellion against the establishment. Freedom in all forms means everything to an Aquarius, which further feeds their 'do not cling to me' posture.

Aquarian's have friends from both sexes so if you are the jealous type, do not, and I mean DO NOT expect them to give up their male or female friends for you. The Aquarian will give you up before they cease contact with a friend. If an Aquarian says they are just friends, that is absolutely the case. At the same time, when it comes to Aquarian's in a relationship, their absolute perfect mate will be their friend first and then their Lover and then their marriage partner. Aquarian's need to be married to their best friend. Period!

The Sun in Aquarius is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family. It describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. This house also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode.

The Sun is moving through your 4th house of home and family, which is also creates a square (challenge) in the home environment. It is time to start re-setting your priorities. This is the time of year where looking at your priorities comes to Light. Often when confronted with what is truly important, it is during a challenging time. Why not take it upon yourself to act upon what is truly important to you rather than waiting for difficulty to make these things fully known to you? If your family is truly important to you, then re-set your priorities right now to fully engage with them. Enough talking about it; let's see you do it.

Any old unattractive behaviors that are not so impressive need to be released right now. Re-visit your family past as a mature adult and then formulate a more mature story line instead of continuing to look at your family through a child's brain. Scroll down to read your Mercury Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Scorpio would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Sagittarius 2nd house, Capricorn 3rd house, Aquarius 4th house, Pisces 5th house, Aries 6th house, Taurus 7th house, Gemini 8th house, Cancer 9th house, Leo 10th house, Virgo 11th house and Libra 12th house.

MERCURY OPPORTUNITY
January 1, 2016 at 9:21 PM EST until
January 8, 2016 at 2:37 PM EST

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

This Mercury transit will be bring with it 4 times in 2016 when Mercury will turn Retrograde. Mercury will turn Retrograde on January 5, 2016 until January 25, 2016. This is why Mercury will return to Capricorn on January 8, 2016 and will stay in Capricorn for such a long period of time from January 8, 2016 until February 13, 2016. Check out the 2016 Retrograde Planetary Calendar for all 4 dates when Mercury will turn Retrograde in 2016. I sure as heck would not plan to marry onn December 31, 2016 or plan a huge New Year's Resolution during that time . . . but, that's a year away, so you have plenty of time to think about how you will approach 2017. I'm just sayin', you have the head's up right now. *****See my notes on Retrogrades at the very bottom of this page.

It will be interesting to see why the Universe gives us only gives us 5 days to enjoy Mercury in Aquarius before it Retrogrades back in Capricorn after 7-1/2 days in Aquarius. Capricorn is most certainly a sign that will sober you up not only emotionally, but mentally as well. THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! Capricorn is skeptical, full of doubt and pessimism. For some reason, after 7-1/2 days, the Universe wants us to back to our Mercury in Capricorn ways for a bit over a month. Make certain you are well aware of this transition of Mercury in Aquarius (I KNOW) that will Retrograde back into Mercury in Capricorn (I USE). During this week of Mercury in Aquarius, tune into what you KNOW that you can USE when the transfer of energy returns to Capricorn on January 8, 2016.

When Mercury, the planet of the mind, enters Aquarius, this is not only a meeting of the minds, it is mental energy that is open to new thoughts, ideas and experiences. More people will be trying new things during this period of time. There is a search for answers that are based in Truth. The traditional accepted way of doing things is tired, old, boring and may not be working anymore and it is time to change gears and do them differently. After all, Aquarius is THE MOST inventive and innovative sign of the zodiac. Folks, if you are looking for originality or a time to be original, it is when Mercury is in Aquarius. That's because Aquarius is naturally aloof and distant; therefore, they are not attached so they are never really surprised by much. What some might find impossible to believe or understand, Aquarius can shrug it off and say, "Yeah, I can understand how that could be possible."

There is such a mental change in energy during this time that you may see yourself getting rid of old things or changing your approach or lifestyle. Out with the old and in with the new! Aquarius is the sign of 'the future' therefore the mind is set firmly on the future. Whatever house is reflected below for your sign, there is a futuristic focus on this particular subject matter. If you notice from the Aquarian glyph, energy (knowledge) is being poured out into the ethers. Pouring energy!

Aquarius

This is a really great placement for Mercury because Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, which is the natural ruler of Aquarius. In other words, Mercury is very comfortable here as if it is in its exaltation. Mercury rules the mind and the intellect and Aquarius is one of the three intellectual air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra). Since this placement acts as though it is in its exaltation (higher form) this increases the need and desire for Good communication that transcends human understanding and turns more Universal and ethereal. This is why Mercury in Aquarius is often seen as telepathic and that of a mind reader. Notice how you will be able to communicate with fewer words or even with the nod of your head. You may find yourself joining or engaging in a group effort where there is truly a 'meeting of the minds'. This is because Aquarius rules groups, memberships, friends, socializing and organizations. Yep, a true meeting of the minds.

Mercury in Capricorn is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family, roots, heritage, private life, father, land, property, residences, and domestic affairs.

Since Mercury rules "thinking" and is moving through your house of home and family you may have a tendency to dwell on your roots, which is the same as your past. This increased "thinking" on your home and family will be a perfect time to have dialogue with members of your family in order to solve the problems at hand. Clear the air with your parents or a child who has not been fully present in the family. It only takes one member of the family to change the dynamics of the family for the better. Change yourself and others will change with you. Find a way to express your feelings with members of your family. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Scorpio would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Sagittarius 2nd house, Capricorn 3rd house, Aquarius 4th house, Pisces 5th house, Aries 6th house, Taurus 7th house, Gemini 8th house, Cancer 9th house, Leo 10th house, Virgo 11th house and Libra 12th house.

VENUS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

Love

VENUS OPPORTUNITY
January 23, 2016 at 3:32 PM EST until
February 16, 2016 at 11:17 PM EST

The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Capricorn naturally rules career, public standing, authority figures, the father, parenthood, military, rank in society and recognition outside of your home and family. Now when you couple Venus, the planet of partnerships, marriages, unions, earned income, personal money, self-worth and personal possessions with the sign of Capricorn then this creates an attraction for the finer things in Life, including attaching ourselves to those who have the finer things in Life that it has to offer us.

This is why those who have Venus in Capricorn in their natal charts will often be attracted to those who have established wealth and prestige. Often times those with Venus in Capricorn will marry for money rather than Love. Certainly Love is involved but it is usually the one with established wealth and rank in society that makes the one with Venus in Capricorn attracted to them. This is where someone will marry above their own station in Life. And since Capricorn is the sign of the father, authority figures and father figures, then a woman is likely to marry someone much older or father-like. Venus in Capricorn also causes someone to marry later in Life rather than waste their time with an un-established individual.

While Venus is in Capricorn we will all be looking at our own desire for material wealth and standing in the community, especially in the house of Capricorn in our natal chart. This placement causes wealth to give us emotional security. On the dating scene, this will cause a spike in places that have prestige, like expensive restaurants or areas of entertainment such as live theater, the symphony or musicals.

Venus in Capricorn does not like PDA (public displays of affection) so it will be interesting to see the reaction of ourselves and the public at large when we see others engage in PDA. GET A ROOM PEOPLE! This type of behavior is beneath Venus in Capricorn. This is also the placement of the goddess or diva and those with Venus in Capricorn in their natal chart will have more goddesslike chiseled features. Someone with Venus in Capricorn in their natal chart will be attracted to a goddess, a diva or one who is very high maintenance.

Venus in Capricorn is moving through your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country and active search for knowledge.

You may feel more agreeable than you have in the recent past. Love is in the air and it shows up in your style of communication. Mars is aggressive energy and Venus is Love and beautiful energy. Imagine if Mars was in your 3rd house of communication, you would be one aggressive communicator. With Venus in this placement you are more agreeable and friendly than usual. You are the most sensitive sign and this sensitivity will probably show up in your style of communcation.

Since the 3rd house rules local travel and local environment, you will probably recognize more beauty in close proximity to you. Your appreciation for the world in your most immediate environment becomes heightened. This is a great time to tell those closest to you know how you feel. Affection for those closest to you is important during this time. Use this opportunity to make amends. Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Scorpio would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Sagittarius 2nd house, Capricorn 3rd house, Aquarius 4th house, Pisces 5th house, Aries 6th house, Taurus 7th house, Gemini 8th house, Cancer 9th house, Leo 10th house, Virgo 11th house and Libra 12th house.

MARS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

MARS OPPORTUNITY
January 3, 2016 at 9:32 AM EST until
March 5, 2016 at 9:30 PM EST

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Scorpio and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is aggressive, impulsive and ram-rod's its way through whatever it wants and it will do without your permission and quite comfortably I might add without a guilty bone in its exo-skeleton body. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mars does not take no for an answer. It's more like, "Oh yeah, well watch this!" Mars naturally rules Aries but it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio, so you see, Mars is very very happy here. It's like Mars has come home from a long period of being away. Pluto is the modern day ruler of Scorpio, but Mars in Scorpio is is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. So this placement is sah-weeeeeeeeeeeet! Of course you know me, if you have been coming to this website long enough, I can find great things and great outcomes in any aspect. It's all in how you choose to look at it. Every single aspect or planetary placement has positive and negative influences and your job is to choose wisely and handle the energy and not let it handle you.

Mars in Scorpio brings about intense desires, so whatever your desire is, then go for it. If you want to lose some weight . . GO FOR IT! If you want to go after that job . . GO FOR IT! If you want to connect with that certain Love interest . . GO FOR IT! Mars in Scorpio does not take no for an answer. The most hard-core placement for Mars is when it goes into Leo and that's because Leo is the strongest of willpower, so Mars in Leo will literally move a mountain. That's the kind of energy boxer's want. Well, Mars in Scorpio is the second most intense and hard-core placement for Mars. This is 'umpf' with purpose! Mars in Scorpio is relentless and intense. Mars in Scorpio has purpose and meaning. Mars in Scorpio has FOLLOW-THROUGH. Dang, if you want to play better golf, then you will probably follow-through on your swing. No kidding folks, Mars in Scorpio has follow-through so that you will complete your task, mission, chore or project. BAM!

Mars in Scorpio reminds me of 5 Navy Seals who held off an invading foreign army. No kidding! Are you pumped up yet and ready to rumble with Mars in Scorpio? Mars in Scorpio is pumped up and ready to rumble. It reminds me of a boxer standing in front of a mirror pumping himself up, rolling his neck around, jumping up and down warming his body up, punching at the mirror and the next thing you hear is the crowd roar because he scored a knock-out punch. I mean this is intense!

Folks, I do want to remind you that Mars in Scorpio brings about a powerful sex drive and can really get your mind a bit pre-occupied. For those of you who have someone in your back pocket, while hanging on to someone else, this can really get you into trouble so I'm firing a warning shot here. You will likely get caught if you sleeping around or even thinking about it. So, either knock it off or just break up with one of the individuals. Don't say I didn't fire the warning shot. You cannot hide anything from Scorpio energy because Scorpio is the detective, researcher and 007 secret agent of the zodiac and it will find out. Don't even attempt to lie to Scorpio energy because Scorpio knows your lying before you even tell the lie. It's spooky.

When Mars in Scorpio is afflicted, as it will be with Mercury in Aquarius on January 5, 2016 and with a square to the Sun in Aquarius on February 7, 2016 any anger associated with this energy can lead to incredible resentment, hostility and grudge holding. In fact, Mars in Scorpio can be so domineering with emotions that it can literally beat another person down into servitude and submission. Now listen, those of you in tough relationships right now, it does not have to be that way. In fact, if just one person in the relationship eases up just a little bit, then this affliction can stop that tough energy in its tracks. Picture a tug-of-war match between two people. What happens when one person let's go? Don't just ease up on the tension because that continues the tug-of-war, you have to literally let go and take your hands, attitude and mind off the argument and it will stop. Just like that it will stop because the other person does not have an opponent on the other end of the rope to continue the war. It doesn't mean you give up, it just means you don't play. THAT my dear little mentators is how you beat an afflicted Mars in Scorpio at their own game, especially if you have Mars in Leo in your chart. Mars in Leo is actually stronger that Mars in Scorpio and can beat Mars in Scorpio at its own game simply by having the willpower to do so and 'not' get engaged in a game of tug-of-war. Visualize the release of that rope and whoever it is, or whatever it is at the other end of the rope and the energy will fall away under its own weight.

Mars in Scorpio is also very possessive, jealous and security driven. There is one thing an individual should never do and that is 'try' to make a Scorpio jealous. Do not light that fire because it will not go out and you will regret it. Scorpio energy is not neutral . . it's not gray . . it's not so-so, it's not moderate . . it's not wishy-washy . . it's not we'll see . . it's not maybe . . it's not indifferent . . it's ALL OR NOTHING! Folks, this energy can take you to the heights of spiritual awareness or the deep dark depths of moral degradation and indecency, it really depends on what motivates your spirit . . . or should I say what you allow your spirit to succumb to.

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Scorpio is moving through your 1st house of identity and how other's see you. This house also rules the personality, your attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It includes the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life and your aura. Take special note that this first house rules your soul's purpose and your inner motivation.

Mars is the most aggressive planet and naturally rules the sign of Aries. With this much drive and energy you will no doubt get a lot accomplished during this time when you truly apply yourself. You may find yourself defending your territory or your belief systems while Mars is moving through your sign. Mars will also cause you to aggressively pursue creative outlets. Your leadership and take charge style will get more finalized and completed. Your self-motivation is contagious and others will want to hang out with you. Your energy is attractive and others will want some of that energy; thereby wanting to hang out and cling to you. You are aggressive, feisty and just down right sexy with this empowered side of you revealing itself to others. Scroll down to read your Chiron Opportunity.

Sagittarius 2nd house, Capricorn 3rd house, Aquarius 4th house, Pisces 5th house, Aries 6th house, Taurus 7th house, Gemini 8th house, Cancer 9th house, Leo 10th house, Virgo 11th house and Libra 12th house.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Taurus', this involves your 11th house of friends, groups of people, former loves, past relationships, the future, your hopes, wishes and connections with those who are in a high position or VIPs. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.

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.

Retrograde Motion

Example of Retrograde Motion: Forward in degrees, Backward in degrees, Forward in degrees. This is the 1st, 2nd and 3rd chance (do-over). If you see the dots as degrees, then you can see by the example that the Retrograde motion would go back to the 04 degree mark, which would make it repeat degrees 04 - 12. So the first line of dots is the 1st time in those degrees, the Retrograde motion going backward is the second time passing over those same 04 - 12 degrees and then forward again is the third time passing over those same 04 - 12 degrees. Pretty cool huh? Therein sits the do-over.

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!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Virgo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house.
