s Jupiter enters Libra in September for his once in 12-year visit, the global scene has rarely been in such a state of ‘high tension’! Brexit has revealed a new level of anti-establishment sentiment fuelling the revolutionary urge for change, the force underpinning the 2010’s, as the USA heads toward elections in the midst of anger, confusion & disillusionment, and global terror events are escalating.
If your birth chart is a symbolic map or mandala of your contract with life, you’re about to be reminded just exactly what that is by September’s cosmic wild cards – the eclipses on September 1 and 16 at 9 and 24 degrees Virgo and Virgo/Pisces. Eclipses are a dramatic display of light and dark when the two Lights – our Sun and Moon – occult the Earth and each other. In the new quantum 5D astrology:
While this Full Moon eclipse will not turn a romantic copper-coloured red during this month-plus-long eclipse season (give or take a few days), the freedom-loving Full Aquarian Moon reflecting the bright light of the playful Leo Sun stills promises lots of fun and games. With a Full Moon that portends sudden zaps and flashes of inspiration into past-present-future action - especially in regards to one’s own uniqueness and creativity, the gifts one brings to organisations and group situations can enhance the sense of ‘oneness’.
Mercury is technically retrograde from the 30th August until the 22nd September. However, if you are exploring the psycho-spiritual process related to this celestial phenomenon, there is a lead in and lead out time that extends the Mercurial Retrograde process from the 16th August through to the 28th September. This entire process refers to the time prior to the retrograde wherein Mercury is at its furthest distance from the Sun in the evening skies until the time that it ascends as far away from the Sun as he possibly can climb in the early morning skies.
August 22nd 2016 "Master of your Universe" In this show, Agent 108 reflects on the entire Mars journey we have been on in 2016. From the pre-shadow, through the retrograde, to now, as Mars and Saturn come together midweek. he also explores the Virgo Archetype because of the great concentration of planets in this tropical Sign. It's a show meant to teach you a few things, yet also to encourage you to get intimate with your own thoughts. Enjoy
With Regulus about to move into Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus move into the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world. Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and Virgo an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The shift from one to the other brings with it a new focus, a new energy.

The history of Jupiter in Libra offers us some key moments in our current story with the formation of the EEC in 1957, which then morphed into the EU in 1993 with the Euro currency - (also first World Trade Centre bombing). Then 2004 saw the enlargement of NATO as the EU incorporated most of former Eastern Bloc. During the past 12 years we’ve had the first GFC in 2008, with subsequent controls from central banks who offered massive loans to lesser EU members with debt they could never repay.
Objectivity and perspective are important because your very strong emotions are likely to be acted upon in a rather theatrical manner. reaching out to the familiar resonates more than ever making us seek reassurance at this time of uncertainty. Ultimately you will not be able to hide your emotions and you may need to reconsider any relationship with people that believe you should. Relationships with lovers dive deeper and become more intense. The Sekhmet aspect of protection of others will play a great role in this moon cycle.
Pluto and its Nodes, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these from other planets, correlate to the root structure within any birth chart. From that root, all else – the South/North Nodes of the Moon, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these points – are ‘birthed’ from that root. It’s like a tree that has branches where the root produces the trunk of the tree, and the trunk then produces branches with leaves. This core root and its branches within the birth chart is treated EQUALLY for it is the very structure of the chart itself
Whether you are a student of astrology, hobbyist or any kind of professional, I strongly recommend meeting up with fellow tribe members. That might be at a meetup, class, group setting, or one of my favorites, a conference. Conferences happen every so many months in various spots around the world. At each, a number of name and other astrologers present work that is old or new, basic or complex, and so on. It is definitely a way to fill yourself up at a metaphorical buffet of astrology knowledge, and to see what you really know.
Last time we "crossed the rainbow bridge" with Kaypacha, this time we take the opportunity to journey with Neptune. Through self exploration of the nodal axis, sourcing images, dreams, resources from past lives, processes of letting go and meditations we will gather our symbols of inspiration and propel them into the future, through images, art and exploration and of course astrology and some planetary magic.
