November 23 – December 3 Saturn is conjunct the, “GalacticCenter,” at 27 degrees of Sagittarius! This also took place: March 5-May 7, of this year, and before that, it took place during other years. We’re ‘lucky” we’re still here living on this fertile, generous blue/green planet. Ok, so what does this mean? I know that Saturn asks us, “What do we stand for? What are we dedicated to and willing to give everything for? We the people of planet Earth flying through the universe inside the Milky Way Galaxy need to define our role, what do we represent? Hopefully kindness and friendship. I’ve read that there are all kinds of galactic conflicts, planetary federations and councils that exist and we don’t know about it. In fact I recall my Sufi teacher Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan speaking about galactic councils this was in the early 80’s. I just think that Saturn is a bit serious… and having it there is not the best thing in the world. Pun intended. *Just now at 2:00 p.m. November 24th Friday… as I typed the word, “Sufi” …an old Astrologer friend named Maureen, in Colorado, called to tell me of the terrible shooting in Egypt at a Sufi Mosque.



November 26 Mars in Libra is in “an accident prone aspect” with Uranus in Aries urging you to be careful, so careful. Anger is eruptive and impatience just about doesn’t exist, for now. Don’t trust the cross walks. Make sure you have eye contact, and wave to the driver before you walk across the street. People drive with little dogs on their shoulders looking out the window, or drink coffee, or eat McDonald’s, or smoke pot, or text constantly. A friend in Boston, Gemini, with Moon in Aquarius, reads the newspaper while driving! Can’t tell him anything…he knows it all. Besides, he’s a lawyer!



November 27 – December 8 Jupiter in Scorpio, is in a positive aspect to Neptune, bringing in healing energy. Do you pray, meditate, and ask for healing for the, “highest good of all?” If so, do it now. This is the time when many, “wake up.” There are more consciously aware people here knowing that we truly are all brothers and sisters. I like to say jokingly, but half serious… that “God” sneezed and… “It” got into everything. Of course, “God” is way beyond the mind’s capacity to define or even stretch to image to define. Formless, Spirit, who can define it? Must feel it….Love, compassion, kindness, sincerity, coming along the same sneeze track, but still way,way beyond that…

Gate Gate Paramsamgate Bodhi Svaha! Hail to Thee who goes beyond the beyond- free from notions, opinions, beliefs, expectations, and is now ready to experience the Divine Life.  


December 1-3 the Sun in Sagittarius is in a challenging aspect to Neptune in Pisces. This means that you (and I) need to take good care of our immune systems. This aspect suggests contagious diseases could be spreading. This aspect also implies that lies are even more pervasive than we imagined (also a pun). It’s tricky to know what truth is. This is why knowing your higher MIND Intuition is so important. If Neptune is in a challenging aspect to your natal Sun, then you would need to be careful with your health. This is true for all who were born: March 2-5, June 2-5, September 4-7, or December 3-6 …of any year.


 December 1-25 Venus is in Sagittarius. “Is it true blondes (still) have more fun?” No…Sagittarians do. Enjoy this period of fun, laughter, silliness, and philosophizing and taking things more lightly. It’s the time to fantasize about going away, or actually planning a vacation!


 December 3 Mercury is turning retrograde at 2:34 a.m. Is your car or truck in fine running condition? Are all the fluids ready for the change of temperature? Are you super careful to communicate clearly and are you listening attentively?



December 3 is the day of Full Moon at 10:47 a.m. The Moon at 11 degrees of Gemini opposite the Sun at 11 degrees of Sagittarius and …Neptune at 11 degrees of Pisces will for sure be creating disruptions. With water? Oil? Gases? Toxicity is spreading; Fukishima is still spreading its invisible toxins. I read that the Keystone pipeline leaked 210,000 gallons onto agricultural land. They said it did not have any effect on drinking water… and then nothing more said? This is exactly what was predicted and worrisome to the Native Americans (& friends) in that area! I think they are going to continue on…fighting it.



December 4-6 Mercury is conjunct Saturn and both are nicely aspecting Mars in Libra. Conversations will spark ideas that you cherish and want to share. Great time to make a pitch and sell something which might be your new job, your idea for a new business, your book, your screenplay? Get ready to go for it. Plan it out now. When there are no planets retrograde that is indeed the very best time to speak your pitch to the people that can make it happen for you. January 1 after 9:10 a.m. - March 8 (2018) that’s a long stretch to have nothing retrograde, a lot longer than last year.


December 8-10 Mercury is trine (positive 120 degree aspect) to Uranus, increasing cosmic awareness. I see that NASA dive-bombed onto Saturn, to get more photos and information. They say Titan a Moon of Saturn might be… “Livable.” During this same phase Venus will be in a troublesome aspect with Neptune indicating high hopes and dreams for finding or attracting Mr. or Ms. Right, the ideal mate. It won’t happen, not at this time anyway. First of all, you have to have one of these aspects in your natal chart for it to happen: Venus in a positive aspect to Pluto. Chiron in a positive aspect to Neptune, Jupiter, Venus or all or two of them. When I have seen these aspects in someone’s natal charts they already KNOW that they are married to their “true love mate,” or they do sense it is about to happen, and then it does. They meet. They know. They feel they have always known each other, they may have met in a dream, some say. With Venus in a challenging aspect to Neptune chances are you meet someone, and then you project your idealizing onto them. You end up feeling that you have been deceived. The truth is that you didn’t see them clearly to begin with, you saw your desired projection of who you wanted them to be! Now you’re mad at them! We all do it, or have done it at some point. We’re human. It’s a great lesson to learn and then get insight into.



 December 9 – January 26, 2018.Mars enters into Scorpio and remains in this determined, sexually hyper water sign, until January 26. Harvey Weinstein was born with Mars in Scorpio. It’s no excuse and it won’t go over big in the court, “Gee sorry Judge, I have Mars in Scorpio, I couldn’t help it.” There are good things about Mars in Scorpio. People who have the capacity for being surgeons were born with this placement of Mars. Perhaps someone out there who was born with Mars in Scorpio will get trained to perform “psychic surgery.” You’d have to get training by one of the doctors from the Philippines who knows how to do it properly. A better choice, I think, than medical surgery. And so this describes a period when we are able to be more focused.



December 10-16 the Sun is conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius and is fabulously aspecting Uranus, bringing in the potential for consciousness raising, such as sung by John, in “Imagine.”  This song is the energy of this aspect. This aspect will bring about innovations that take will hold. For instance I heard that in England they are using coffee grinds to fuel their buses! Open yourself to allowing an invention to come through YOU!



December 17 the New Moon takes place at 10:30 a.m. with the Sun and Moon (& Mercury, too!) at 26 degrees of Sagittarius with Saturn, close by. All are at the galactic center of our Milky Way Galaxy, where our blue/green planet is soaring through the universe. This is significant. It is going to be with us for the next  29 ½ days for creating harmony for planet Earth’s contribution, to our galaxy. What would you like that to be? I want to bring about what is for the highest good of all. I am visualizing all inhabitants of the Earth holding hands in a circle around the Earth smiling, happy, everyone with home, food, clothing and secure finances to take care of all needs and sensible wants. Ok, what can we do on a practical level, Saturn says? Well, I think we’re all donating and doing what we can to help stop the Keystone Pipeline from leaking anymore than it already has. We’re working towards impeaching Trump & Pence. We’re donating what money we can afford to give to the Puerto Rican people to have clean drinking water (Google Waves for Water), and placing refugees from Syria, in safe homes, helping the people of Houston, and the list goes
