Mercury recently conjuncted Pluto and squared Uranus, translating (hyper-activating) the Uranus-Pluto square, December 18 – 21.

But now Mercury – moving retrograde – will repeat that performance, this time while moving very slowly and stationing direct.

So THIS TIME, instead of intensifying the already tight (just over 1 degree in orb!) Uranus-Pluto square FOR JUST THREE

DAYS, Mercury will apply his pressure to the feisty square for a MUCH LONGER TIME:


Long translations like this often precipitate the most dramatic events in the news.

We’ve seen some story of shocking violence or terrorism in the news almost every week since the Uranus-Pluto square

tightened again, a few months ago. But this coming week could be one of the worst this year.

Mercury's involvement in planetary conflict often creates a "War-and-Rumors-of-War" dynamic, where we hear a lot about

stress and destruction, possibly exaggerated versions of what's really going on. But that doesn’t mean the attacks won’t be

real. We may just have difficulty sorting out different versions of the facts we hear reported.

Mercury also brings short distance travel concerns to the Uranus-Pluto action, making worse-than-normal traffic accidents

and road rage incidents likely. If you plan to drive this week, be patient and careful in all you do.


ON THE 22ND … with the impending Full Moon energies amping up the rest of the planetary energies in general, Moon

will also translate all three – Uranus, Pluto, and Mercury – and add emotionalism to the already volatile mix.

Though you might want to put extra “red flags” on those days, they won’t be the only days of agitated energies and added

risk early this year. Moon will also translate the still-tight Uranus-Pluto square (aspecting one and then the other, in quick

succession) once every week through May, when the square finally separates enough to make each translation's punch much


To complicate matters (and confuse them as well), Saturn continues his challenging square to Neptune throughout much of

2016, though they move closer to the mid-degrees of Mutable signs in the spring.

Expect to see new and continuing stories about toxic community water supplies (like the story out of Flint, Michigan) and

gas leaks (like the catastrophic leak in Porter Ranch, CA) in the national and international news. Also expect a likelihood of

some in high places will go to jail, charged with the corrupt practices that endangered thousands of citizens.


Mundane events tend to show up more spectacularly than personal events, reflecting harsh planetary aspects in sharper


To know how these aspects might effect you, personally, check your chart for planets and points at mid-Cardinal and

early-mid Mutable degrees.

As PERSONAL TRANSITS, squares can actually provide you with the LEVERAGE YOU NEED to accomplish great or

difficult things. You can USE THEIR POWER to your own advantage -- if you know how to do it


Make a conscious effort to create positive manifestations around the planets/houses in your chart affected by these squares,

and the issues they rule in your life.

January 3, 2016



_________ + ________ + 2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = ___________
Birth Month Birth Date
** (add digits until you have a single digit)

1 Personal Year – A year of new beginnings, time to make a new start, make decisions, and forge ahead with self-directed momentum. The things that you begin now are likely to last at least nine years, if not a lifetime, so make your decisions with this in mind. You have an abundance of energy this year to use for anything you choose. Health, wealth, and creativity abound. It’s your turn to stand alone, assert your independence, and act. This can be a great time; use it to full advantage.

2 Personal Year - Development, cooperation, negotiation, and waiting…a personal year 2 is a wait and see time – a year when you will find yourself in the background with your projects "under construction." This is not a time to force things to move forward, but to move forward through co-effort with others. Be prepared for delays, detours, stoppages and the need for patience. This is a time of incremental contributions and tending to details. You may give time and effort to further the work of another person. Deep personal relationships may culminate this year (including marriage). Existing marriages often deepen and/or reveal hidden problems.

11 Personal Year - This "Master Number" year is highly charged, and illuminates the 11 year. You get noticed and attract attention for any talents you have cultivated. Inspiration follows you around and you use it in some creative capacity. You must make quick decisions at times because things happen so quickly. Adventure and excitement abounds, and it is a powerful time to use positive thinking and creative visualization techniques. You are very intuitive now, and might even have clairvoyant experiences.

3 Personal Year - Self-expression and optimism fill your life this year. The 2 year's slow development and waiting period is over and it's time to get on with things in a more aggressive way. Luck is on your side and you seem to shine with sunny warmth and enthusiasm, drawing well-wishers, (and potential benefactors), from near and far. Creative pursuits, travel, and communication of every kind are emphasized. This time can bring an actual "birth", or a figurative one in the form of a new business or career, a work of art or even a new self-image. The important thing is that you use this time of opportunity to the best of your advantage and find new ways to express yourself.

4 Personal Year - Organization, practicality, analysis, and productivity describe your 4 year. The creative drive of last year’s 3 vibration needs harnessing and direction to move to a higher level. Systematic efforts and honest, hard work pay off in tangible ways if you use this vibration wisely. The number 4 symbolizes Earth and the four directions and evokes a similar energy of initiation as the Cardinal signs, Angular houses, and square aspect … a call for effort that pays off in tangible rewards. Time to focus on earthly matters, save for the future, and build a foundation for what will come. Building health of the body, mind, emotions, and spirit – and finding the right balance between them – will help you secure a strong

foundation for your future.

22 Personal Year – Another Master Number, 22 has similar qualities to 4, but tends to dream and build on a much bigger scale. If you have a Personal Year number that adds up to 22, let yourself shoot for the moon this year! If you allow doubts to hold you back, the 22 can backfire with feelings of extreme frustration and ultimate regret.

5 Personal Year - This year brings a desire for freedom of movement, speech, and thought – freedom to follow wherever the five senses lead. Travel, adventure, education, and communication are likely interests at this time. Changes are constant and the freedom to move with these changes is very important. Love affairs, sex, indulgences of every kind are a part of this vibration. This is the time to explore and investigate. You accumulate knowledge and experience for future years on your journey.

6 Personal Year - Marriage, family, and community become your focus this year. You can access your feelings and intuitive abilities more easily now. Creativity becomes more important to you, and might decide to redecorate or remodel your home this year. You may be asked to make big life commitments…marriage, children, partnerships of all kinds. You emanate love and nurturing, and many will ask for your help and caring this year.

7 Personal Year - You will want to rest, reflect, and analyze your goals, relationships, and where you'd like to go from here. This is a time of introspection, so you may find it necessary to withdraw from life a little bit and go off by yourself. It is a good time to write about your contemplation, as your perception goes deeper now and you have the opportunity to tap into "higher knowledge." The 7 vibration has an air of mysticism and a 7 Personal Year is a time to look inward for answers. If you resist that process, you find that things go awry. If you flow with it, your life flows smoothly.

8 Personal Year - Now is the time to receive payment for efforts made in the past. The new beginnings made during your 1 Personal Year now bear fruit, and this may mean money, power, and recognition. Or, this can be a time of making payment, and clearing debt. “As you have sown, so shall you reap,” is the motto for the 8 year. Consequences of past actions may bring great success or great challenges. You are ready to face whatever comes, charged with a powerful energy that gives you increased physical strength and stamina. You can make great strides in any area you wish.

9 Personal Year - The 9 Personal Year is a period of preparation for the next cycle of 1 through 9 years. It is a time when you weigh everything in your life and only those things you need survive the culling process. It’s best to honestly and lovingly face yourself and your life at this time. If you do, and if you have been true to yourself up until now, this will be a time of release, freedom, and exhilarating relief. You anticipate the possible new adventures ahead and may travel or otherwise explore what the world can offer for your future.

Astrological Transit

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Astrological transits are one of the main means used in horoscopic astrology to forecast future trends and developments (the other means used is astrological progression, which progresses the horoscope forward in time according to set methods). As its name implies, astrological transits involve a method of interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope. This is most often done for the birth or Natal Chart of a particular individual. Particular attention is paid to changes of sign, or house, and to the aspects or angles the transiting planets make with the natal chart.

A particularly important transit is the planetary return. This occurs when a transiting planet returns to

the same point in the sky that it occupied at the moment of a person's birth. What this means is that the

planet has completed a whole circuit of the sky, and signifies that a new cycle in the person's life is

beginning. The most significant returns are those of the outer planets Jupiter and Saturn. The Jupiter

return occurs approximately every 12 years and heralds a new phase of growth and development. The

Saturn return occurs approximately every 30 years, and heralds a new phase in the aging process when new realities and responsibilities must be faced.
