Happy Birthday Sagittarius!


This started as occassional emails I would send out to friends and family to keep them up-to-date with the stars and help them use Planetary Calendars. It has grown to a rather large weekly email list and some radio appearances.

Here is the most recent update - I have also compiled an archive of these emails below along with various other articles.

If you have any comments or questions (or would like to receive the regular emails or special offers we send, directly to your inbox), please feel free to email me. You can also get these regularly if you follow us on Facebook.

Thank you for your interest. Peace! Carole

December 13, 2014 Astrology Tips
Current astrological "weather forecast" or community horoscope


Hello my friends,

We have really been on the hop lately, haven't we ? Lots of change, lots of disruption, and a lot of time away from the things we normally do. Funny how the Universe pushes us along the path, isn't it? For me and folks also born in and around 1967, it is particularly strong as Uranus is conjunct with our natal Saturn positions - forcing a change in our foundation. Uranus tries to liberate and free us from outmoded things and Saturn is so much about structure, foundation and responsibilities. It's a bit like moving house, but sort of internally. You have to pick everything up, dust it off, decide if you want to keep it or throw it out...pack it away for storage or keep it handy for daily use.

Saturn has been in super intense, life and death Scorpio for the past 2 and half years, roughly and I think everyone has felt that - though none more strongly than those with Sun or other bodies in Scorpio. Scorpio forces us to face our shadow side. It brings up our deepest hopes and fears. It is akin to the Phoenix - the mythical bird that consumes its own self in flames, only to be reborn of its ashes.

Saturn is about to change signs and move from intense Scorpio to jovial and expansive Sagittarius - do I hear a collective "hurray" out there or was that a sigh of relief? This most welcome event happens on December 23rd and I would be willing to bet, each of us feels a sense of lightening up over the holidays. Saturn will retrograde and return to Scorpio for a brief review in 2015, but not until Spring. That will give us a time to see where we are with the new energy of Saturn in Sag, as the year begins, and then to review the lessons we learned during Saturn in Scorpio time while giving us a chance to make course corrections if necessary. The best laid plans of mice and men can often go awry - this would be the time to try and get back on the right path if we are not satisfied where we are.

Folks with the Sun or other bodies in Sagittarius might feel the squeeze of Saturn's restrictive nature. If that is you, don't take risky chances during this time - Saturn smiles on responsible behavior. For the actual stiffness that Saturn can inspire, epsom salt in the path and plenty of good food, high in magnesium (like spinach and blueberries) can ease your way - but even you will likely feel a bit lighter that you did while Saturn was in Scorpio.

In other news, We have another exact square of Uranus and Pluto going on tomorrow. These bodies don't move quickly, so we have been and will continue to feel the effects of this transit for a while. This is the 6th of 7 exact squares between these two, I am told, and it has been suggested that these 7 squares correspond to the 7 chakra points. I don't know much about that, but I did find it interesting. This is a big long transit for a very good reason. Uranus is trying to liberate us from outmoded behavior and thinking that is so entrenched in us that it takes 7 passes to really make it happen. Think about that. Like peeling back the layers of an onion, this transit is helping us to shed the things that are holding us back - and not just us, but the world.

Someone asked "where is this revolution I have been hearing about?" To that I can say, it is happening before your very eyes. As we personally change and change our world around us, we watch the world - more connected than ever on social media - and see the problems more clearly. People on both sides are acting out - those who hold the old ways dear, so fearful they can not wrap their mind around living or being any other way, and those who can see a beautiful new way, a way we have been working toward as a species for a long time, just ahead but beyond our grasp.

When America was born on July 4, 1776, Pluto was at 27 degrees Capricorn and it was retrograde. Today, Pluto is at 12 degrees Cap and doesn't gets close until 2020, but it doesn't make its first exact hit until Feb. 2022 (and then it will retrograde over that point at least once before the process is over). My point is that there is a lot of work to do before we see America reborn from its own ashes (figuratively, I hope) - and there is a lot of time before it happens. We, as a collective, are undergoing the same peeling the onion process as we liberate ourselves from the Age of Pisces and get a firm rooting in the Age of Aquarius.

On a lighter note, the Geminid Meteor showers are happening Dec. 13-15th. Check out our Facebook page for more information and viewing tips. We include this information in our Planetary Calendar and invite you to get your copy and follow along in 2015 - the pocket sized calendars fit in your back pocket and make perfect stocking stuffers. Orders must be received by December 18th to ensure Christmas delivery via USPS, but electronic calendars can be instantly downloaded.

Wishing you all the very best of the holiday season and throughout the new year. I look forward to "seeing" you all in 2015!
