THE WEEK BELONGS TO MARS IN CAPRICORN
Mars rules the week AND the full Moon.
Normally Venus has sway over October,
but this month she's passionate
but not in her strongest position.
MARS,however is exalted in Capricorn
rising about Pluto in the morning.
The key phrase of the month and the full moon is defend your turf
defend your turf
without committing an actual crime....
The secret to success is
to use polish
and finesse and expertise,
diligence and cool prudence.
If you're in the business world
or in the working world
and are providing goods and services
and products for people,
the trick is to make sure
your product or service
is the best on the market.
Even Kraft mac & cheese is claiming
they are using better ingredients.
And that's the ticket now--
to raise your level with Mars in Capricorn
so that you compete
in a market that is getting
frenzied and more rough.
Not the moment to set a flaming torch
to the bridge you have just crossed.
Mars Saturn and Jupiter
help you exercise restraint
and keep you from getting obnoxious
if your passions, desires and needs
are not satisfied immediately.
If you want to stay on top
you have to know how to negotiate
and not just enter a neighboring village
and put everyone to the sword.
Be shrewd be the best
Advance with caution
Even though a lot of things
don't be a grouch.
When Jupiter rises above the Sun,
you can for the week
remember you love being alive
try to forget
five hundred earthquakes
while you are on your way
from the bed to the bathroom
in the morning
We emphasize Jupiter
rising above the Sun because
it helps to keep your engine running
and KEEP you propped up.
We also know underneath it all
the residual effects of the eclipse
can give you the feeling that
whatever you are doing
and excited about
IS completely stupid and worthless.
To get you over those moments
whatever you are into
has to have the momentum
of your whole emotional
and spiritual being behind it.
Jupiter can always exaggerate,
confabulate, prevaricate, regurgitate
and outright deny,
it always mitigates evil.
It directly vanquishes sorrow and travail
by eliminating the notion of failure,
reframing one's perspective and attitude,
and finding a wisdom lesson
in every experience.
Jupiter helps you to enjoy,
digest and metabolize
It probably won't change your life,
but It sure can help change your attitude.
Therefore, at the moment,
Lighten up and reconnect!--
at least until the Pluto new moon,
when every optimism will come in handy
If you're not afraid to feel it,
the eclipse has left a dull ache
in the deepest part of you – – –
an ache for something that is gone forever.
A confirmation of the impermanence
of all things.
We are all perched upon such a slender twig.
It's as if in brushing
by you a ghost has
gently touched your cheek.
Between two eclipses
is a strange period,
all periods are strange.
It is said sometimes
not to make serious plans
or finalize projects
during the period
between ad Solar and Lunar eclipse.
mercury is retrograde too
so what do you do,
crawl into a hole?
You've got to keep living

25 August 2016
You've got to try to understand
when we say you're on your way
and you're moving ahead.
It's like you have been
detoured, bushwhacked, ambushed,
and horrendously delayed
in one way or another
due to the miserable inflammation
caused by the Mars transit of 2016.
But now you're ready to advance.
Everybody, one way or another,
to one extent or another,
felt like a walking inflamed clot of blood and muscle
at certain points during that Mars transit.
Having at last passed the Saturn point
which was just exactly where the Mars
had stopped moving at Antares/Al Debaran,
the system is flowing again,
and so are you.
But... It's always something!
We all live on a wheel of pleasure and pain.
We are bound to it from birth to death.
When the wheel is moving upward
toward the sunshine we smile,
we breathe easier,
we are having "good" luck,
meaning that the planets
are in favorable alignment
to the alignment of our birth.
When, however, challenging or difficult
i.e. bad aspects are forming,
we become submerged and uncomfortable.
Wheel turning down into the muddy waters.
Much depends on the birth positions of course –
the family you landed in –
but a great deal also lies
within your understanding of the lessons
you are here to learn
and the rewards you are here to reap.
The Mars Saturn trip
we have all been on and been sacked by,
the severity of that configuration
will vary depending on how Mars and Saturn
were configured at your birth and by progression.
Now in this eclipse of September 2016,
the effects will depend
on how your own sun and moon positions
were and are now oriented
towards the transiting Mars, Saturn, and Neptune.
It is hopelessly complicated
for anybody to figure it all out
but let's see if we can make sense
of a most confusing conglomerama
of planets in mutable signs.
That's where all the flies have landed
in the bowl of soup
you are currently staring into.
TUNE IN NEXT WEEK
FOR THE EXTENDED ECLIPSE MESSAGE
FOR ALL TWELVE SIGNS
22 august 2016
Finally Mars Saturn
and at last
you can move on.......
Do you ever wonder why
so many people quit school
just before graduation,
never finish their doctoral dissertation,
or walk away from success
right when it's within their grasp?
Of course there are a million
analytic reasons why some people
would avoid success
as we usually define it.
We read about Sagittarius
as the sign of the higher mind,
education, psychology, philosophy
and of course that's all true.
For some people
it's a simple and straightforward path.
They have a goal;
they need to learn and master
the elements of that goal.
So they pursue it
diligently, enthusiastically, optimistically--
and the doors open to them.
Other people stumble and fall along the way.
They start out great guns,
full of good wishes, intentions and enthusiasm,
but then life gets in the way.
or what they consider boredom.
Sometimes life interferes
by presenting tremendous obstacles.
Fear is the worst.
Fear of going on and facing
the dangers arising from taking risks.
Sometimes for a reason we don't understand
enthusiasm flags and people are done,
finito, all over with their pursuit, a
nd on to something else.
As they get older
and look around they criticize themselves
for not having "achieved " anything.
We have to remember tha
t Sagitarius is the point of exploration.
Sagittarius impels us to go
where we have never been before ,
but doesn't always allow us to relax
and enjoy being there
when we get there.
New Hampshire Florida
Bali Melbourne Tibet---
All fabulous spots--
gorgeous, Rich, beautiful,
but Sadge is often
more about the journey
than the destination.
The current conjunction of
Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius
stimulates both curiosity
to push the envelope and explore,
coupled with an apprehension
that can be terrifying.
Mars-Saturn Can really be scary – –
both Malefic planets together!
Even if you don't get
bumped on the head
it can be a kind of "brain damage"
that keeps you from
freely enjoying the adventure
if you don't remember that
you always have options.
The challenge is
To remain dedicated
to your own intelligent capacity
to know right from wrong,
to continue the pursuit of knowledge
and to overcome the fear of retribution
if you dare to go
where you have never been before.
It's not always about formal education,
mainly because some people
can have three PhD's
and still act like morons.
Other people can leave school at nine
and yet possess the wisdom
of an old,old shamanic woman
in the frozen frozen wasteland,
covered with Wolf fur and whale blubber,
who deeply knows
everything there is to know.
The mind is everything.
It is about piercing through
hypocrisy and ignorance
on all levels.
(I think his name was Mingna
or something like that.
We were standing there
in the ice and snow and wind,
somewhere the Himalayas.
Yingma was squinting
and pointing upwards to where
the top of the mountain lay hidden
in the morning clouds.
"Many have attempted the journey,"
he was saying.
"Many have died."
I was looking at him
through my goggles,
trying to figure out why
he was saying that,
because I knew
that he had been
up-and-down that mountain
since he was 11 years old.)
What a dream.
Mars Saturn in Sadge
in the sign of the mind
is the challenge
to find sanity in madness,
courage in fear,
patience in restlessness,
diligence in avoidance,
truth in lies,
wisdom in ignorance.
The mind is everything,
and no one can say
what's right for anyone else.
Apart from the laws
of one's land, culture and religion,
ultimately it is your own mind
That chooses one path or another.
The deeper mind
is constantly seeking
to reveal your truth
if you're not scared to listen.
Never fear or doubt your path.
Anyone can wake up at any moment
through the signs
Aries, Aries Rising
We are such a kooky bunch.
Some members of your sign
do flaunt their fancy education
in the faces of other people.
They display their knowledge
a little too
like travel stickers
on an old-fashioned suitcase.
Others who have seen
in organized education, law and religion
are more embarrassed
even to reveal that they indeed
have accomplished formal education.
With Mars Saturn in your ninth house
you're likely to be embarrassed
with or without a diploma.
The important thing is
pride in overcoming obstacles,
mental or psychological
and finding freedom
in the success you have found
in finding your own way.
Part of the reason
we are on the Earth
is to find happiness
and gratitude for being alive
and allowed to enjoy the fruits
and pleasures of being alive.
That is certainly one of the
Taurus principles of existence.
We don't want to get piggy, though,
and fall prey to a life
of gluttonous pursuits.
So even if you can expect
a crimp in sexual pleasure now,
with Jupiter and the north node
in the fifth house
you can find great love
(at the expense of an orgasm).
At the moment it is the depth of feeling
and loyalty and familial love
that can be more fulfilling.
There are very slippery patches
on the road of mixed finances
keep your eyes on the road
your hands where they belong--
on the wheel. For further information
GEMINI, GEMINI RISING
You're under such surveillance
by absolutely everybody.
Everybody wants wants wants,
and they are squeezing you
like an orange.
You cannot keep everybody happy|.
That's a given.
Your position-- public AND private
could be in jeopardy.
If only you could withdraw
to your bedroom,
put on some music
and stay cozy
till the whole thing blows over,
but you can't.
They would be banging
on the door asking for simple answers
to questions that have
1000 sides of truth to them.
You have to take the challenge
but not let anyone
go over the line.
That includes you.
Try to stay connected
to people who are blessed to have
a practical and rational approach
They may lack, however,
a grasp of the confusion
or psychologial inner dialogue
you are grappling with.
Nor do they know about
the clutch you may be experiencing
feeling in your gut.
Some of the most important individuals
in your life are not totally available
right now (IF ever)
or nurture you.
Simplifying your life
and purifying your lifestyle
may be boring
but could get you through
this constipated moment. For further information
LEO, LEO RISING
You can buy sex
if you have the money
or the desire,
but you can't buy love
unless and until
your heart is open to it.
It's an easy platitude
of course it's probably true.
If you've ever
been in love or
try to raise children,
you know how deeply
either and both can cut into your soul.
Performing artists know this,
mainly because they learned early
authenticity is the way
to be loved by their audience.
To reveal oneself so completely, however,
puts one ina vulnerable position--
to be either cheered
by thunderous applause
or splattered with rotten tomatoes. For further information
There is no security in this life.
Gurus will tell you that.
Same message you get
from your stomach
when you wake up in the morning,
if you don't realize that
security comes from within.
can allow others
to tap into your strength and wisdom
and still keep enough space for yourself
to maintain good health,
without which Virgos cannot function .
You're still human.
Be grown up
and dont let them
drive you mental.
Communication is an art in itself.
When you have something to say ,
it's best to say it in person
or on the telephone.
Texts and emails can be Really bad.
The true tone of your communication
is never clear in a text or email.
Also, once it's in print
it's in print forever.
So the trick is
be real and deep
when you have to be,
but you don't have to prove it
by biting the head off a live chicken.
You have to blend your perception
of what's going on
with patience, humility and compassion
before you start
shooting your mouth off
or just shooting .
Anger is healthy
cruelty is not.
Your challenge is to
get it off your chest,
at the same time
communication can either
Unite or separate people forever.
You can be grateful
to have teammates
who love you
and depend on you, as well as
friends who can support you
in good times and bad.
You're coming back
and still recovering
from a long bout with everything!
Any financial squeeze
you may be experiencing
can only make you better
at selling products,
goods and services.
you like to handle it all,
but you also need
the support of people.
Your goal has to be
not profit first
but the good of the people
you are there to serve,
--- their benefit
even if you're worried about finances
Put the common good
you will have no worries.
The Mars ritual of earlier this year,
following on the high heels
of the Saturn transit,
seemed endless I'm sure.
While you are not
in seventh heaven now,
with the Mars Saturn slap in Sadge,
the advantage is tremendous.
While the road seems rough,
you are way more in control
of your destiny
than you have been.
Your fate is now in your own hands.
It is your choice
and your action
and your thoughts
and your mindset
and your determination
and realistic optimism
that will be your tools
to deal with
and future situations.
As artistic and spiritually oriented
as you may be,
as a Capricorn
you are certainly more comfortable
dealing right here on Earth
with the practical matters of
job, money, health,
home, and relationships.
You probably hate those traits
when you're younger,
but as you get older
you appreciate the need
So it's a little scary
when you have to
skate on thin ice
or swim at your own risk
or somehow allow
to carry you on.
If isometimes it seems dark
and the candle blows out,
your inner guidance system
will kick in.
Let's hope. For further information
AQUARIUS, AQUARIUS RISING
It is kind of odd --
after struggling to establish yourself
in the world,
gain some position,
find professional status
you wake up one day
and you look out the window
and you ask yourself,
"What the hell have I been doing?"
You begin to see that
there's something else out there
away from the stupid politics
that drain your energy
and challenge integrity
every single day.
It's not that you've been blind
to horrible corruption
and that you had an awakening.,
it's just now
you're turning to
another part of your life
blossom and be more fruitful.
Friendships are going to change drastically
because of this--
professionally and otherwise,
your goals are different,
even if you don't even know
where they are yet.
Can you possibly
stay within the lines,
live inside the box,
do everything you're told to do,
be respectful and respectable?
Can you follow all the guidelines,
take all the medicine
and do everything the authority figures
like a good soldier?
You like to be helpful, compliant,
easy-going and forgiving,
but is there a limit
to how much you can squeeze yourself
and follow rules you don't respect,
or are you not sure
are correct or proper?
you have to conform now
and try as hard as you can
to follow the letter of the law.
It's the way back into society. I did, however,
Why conform to a society
you don't even want to belong to?
Don't ask now.
It seems like nothing's ahppening
but it is.
What you don't have,
you don't need.
A Word or Two for the Week
about watching the transiting planets.
MIKEY'S URGENT WEEKLY MESSAGE:
Now that you've heard the weekly message,
to complete the Mars Ritual,
read Saturn in Scorpio.
If you don't have it already, GET IT NOW.
MARS DIRECT IN SCORPIO
From now 27-30 June--2 August
THE WEEK TO TRY NOT TO SCREAM
Hate your life?
Sometimes you almost have to get to that point
in order to to make a change.
Positive motivation is the key phrase now,
and if you put your head in that place,
you won't be mad at the world.
There is no passion without aggression,
and it takes a lot of forbearance to assert your needs
without trampling on others
and even getting yourself arrested.
Inflammation and eruptions
and outbursts of pent-up energy
don't come out of nowhere,
but does it have to be Mount St. Helen's
before somebody notices that pressure
has been building up for days, weeks, months or years?
You are getting rid of a lot of garbage
and toxic waste right now
but you don't have to randomly throw it out the window
on to everybody else's head.
Healthy living adult human beings,
no matter how civilized they are,
have creative and emotional needs that have to be met.
Over the past few years,
you have shown tremendous courage and patience,
self-restraint, and discipline
in understanding the limitations of others
and your quiet struggle to survive.
Now you have to learn to give voice to your own desires.
This is also a financial moment in time
to tap into the resources in reserves
that have been left for you to use.
In a social or personal relationship,
the direct motion of Mars in the solar seventh house
can be highly exciting.
Sometimes the other person
has to be the aggressor
and tickle you where you need to be tickled
in order to stimulate your glands.
Business partnerships could be lively and energized,
but they’re unlikely to be totally peaceful.
You really should not back away
and play hurt feelings
if someone challenges you now because they're going to.
You have to be able to answer
questions rise to the occasion,
and extend your abilities
as if you had hired a tough fitness trainer.
In some cases it will be an attack,
and others an honest confrontation
and demand for your attention and performance.
There is a lot more
to good mental and physical health
and just cutting down on booze and sugar,
and trying to lose weight for the hundredth time---
although that's a huge part of it of course.
It's about making a consistent
and total and permanent life change,
not just in fits and starts the way so many Geminis do.
If you do have any health issues,
the trick now right now
is to implement measures to create
a wholesome lifestyle naturally
within whatever restrictions and limitations you have.
Creating a productive working environment
depends as much on your ability to work consistently
as it does on the people you count on to help you.
If you've got kids,
you have to pay attention to them now,
even if they're sassy, fresh, or aggressive.
If you're in the dating pool,
this part could be fun.
If you're an artist or entertainer, it's even better.
If you've been afraid of love
because you've been hurt
or reluctant to strut your stuff
even though you know you have talent,
unbutton that top button and glide back onto the stage.
You have to take a risk of self-exposure
and enjoy the thrill of danger
and the rising heartbeat
that goes along with emotional or intellectual or creative risk.
Naturally, your stomach is upset now and then,
and naturally, it's not easy to sleep.
The retrograde transit of Mars
down at the bottom of your astrological chart
is unsettling on your tummy and your mind.
You have to redecorate your house,
move furniture, and change the feng shui completely.
In the case of some Leos, that's happening literally,
and does show a new dependence on and respect for family.
It's definitely agita, though,
mainly because it means back to the drawing board.
This is a chance to rethink the last 15 years
and prepare for the next.
there's a big gap of understanding
between differences of opinion
and slashing somebody with words
that can never be taken back.
It's true with everybody.
But what drives people apart is not saying
what has to be said or say it
with bitterness and vitriolic intention to hurt.
What brings people together
is the ability to clear the air
and the desire not to separate but to connect.
You can get energized
and highly motivated to raise your level
of economic existence even in this crazy time,
but it's not going to get you anywhere
if you just start screaming about money.
In fact, you know you have to spend money.
No, not on crazy investments,
but on your ability to move ahead.
Raising your standard of living
does not mean making a manic show of your wealth,
but renew your courageous ability
to manipulate your resources,
and not break the bank in the process.
Naturally, money is on everybody's mind right now.
You're not poor.
You're not being sent to the almshouse,
this is not 18th century France before the revolution…
Or is it?
OMG, World watch out.
Scorpio is on the move.
You had a serious comeuppance
over the last couple years,
and it was humbling and in many cases devastating.
The process of self reinvention
is now complete or will be by August.
How you present the new you
will create quite a different image,
probably even physically
from all of your previous selves.
That's what Scorpio is all
you completely embrace and submerge
in a phase of your life
with a complete devotion and even obsessive zeal.
Then it's over. Period.
You crawl into your cocoon and make yourself over.
Here you come again.
The next five or six weeks
are crucial for your inner life
and finding faith and strength to resist escapist temptations.
The passage of Mars
about to leave your solar or ascendant 12th house
is a culmination of everything
that's been going on since 2012.
It can be a spiritually enriching time
if you allow the universe to direct you
to a higher course of action.
Otherwise, you'll wonder
‘why the hell bother?’
There will be doubts and pulls downward,
mainly because rational thinking is not at work.
Dedication to helping those less fortunate than you
gets you through a deeply confusing
and even troubling time.
It's like driving through a blinding rainstorm
on a road you always thought you knew.
Keep your hand on the wheel your eyes ahead and keep going.
It's a paradox: nobody is an island.
In your circle of friends,
your local community,
or the society of planet Earth,
we all have to live as a unified whole,
working for the common good.
Even in the closest friendships however,
there is bound to be dissension and strife.
When peer and political jealousies arise,
there is often a scramble for control.
This is a moment to weigh dispassionately
all your friendships.
Loyalty often conflicts with opportunism.
Think about that a moment.
Your professional status is about to change,
If it's age-appropriate
you have most likely already established yourself
as a credible, confident, reliable,
and talented performer
in whatever your chosen field happens to be.
Some Aquarians are screwing it up
at the last minute, however.
Part of you is tired of the whole image thing,
not to mention the burden of responsibility
and struggles you have been involved in
to get to this point.
So it's natural to be looking forward
to a moment when you have your life back.
It's just going to be a matter
of how you exit one phase of your life and enter the next.
Not that you're going to pack
your little suitcase and take off
for a world tour tomorrow morning,
but you sure have the itch to get out of the house
and venture forth.
No question you have some confidence issues
that you're not talking about,
whether it's your age,
or your physical body,
or one million other twists of mind.
That can undermine
your confidence to go out there
and explore what you have not yet explored.
If you have a destination or someone to hold your hand,
by all means, go.
The Venus conjunction
almost always involves
love with separation
and it makes this conjunction
this week as it has just formed.
RUMORS ARE FLYING.
It's hard to get a straight story,
very difficult to focus.
The stories are conflicting.
Pictures are blurry.
Extremely difficult to concerntrate.
It feels like Retrograde Mercury
but it isn't.
Minds are all over the place.
You start cleaning up
in one room
Find a piece of paper
you thought you lost
six months ago
ans that sends you
in an entirely
till the phone rings.
Mutability of this kind
is really tough
for people who like to
stick to one thing
until it is completed.
Even your own position
politically or personally
as the whole entire world
seems to be afflicted
wioth a weird kind of
we wont say disorder
beause this is what
when the lights
form a lunation
in mutable signs
NO definitive answer
or certainty exists
anyway ever in the world
but now it's a total joke
except it's no joke
when you can't
fix upon a
subject for long..
It's a time to gather information
work to finalize
ideas and projects
knowing full well
that you will be distracted like crazy.
Enjoy your skitziness.
CAN YOU LIVE WITHOUT YOUR CAPTOR?
CAN YOU THRIVE WITHOUT YOUR VICES?
CAN YOU ENJOY LIFE
WITHOUT A THREAT TO YOUR HAPPY EXISTENCE?
From 27 May on
Next Week in Review
The Next Two Months And 11 Days in Review
The Mars Ritual Hits
As Mars reaches the crucial phase
of its retrograde/ direct motion
over the final degrees of Scorpio,
you'll be stunned by the power of your cravings.
Although Masterpieces can be created now,
it's a moment when geniuses go mad.
Any deep sea creatures swimming around
on the floor of the ocean of your mind
rise to the surface.
and half-forgotten memories rise up,
and you must be mentally and spiritually strong enough
to prove you can cope.
Not only cope
and achieve mastery over your own drive to punish yourself
or others and gratify primitive,
You're not alone.
Although most people don't realize it's happening,
Just when you think
you've escaped the clutches of your own obsessions,
They come out of the floor and grab your ankles.
You're crossing a perilous foot bridge right now,
with riches and rewards awaiting you on the other side.
It's a golden chance
to get rid of all the garbage you don't need
that you've been hanging on to for God knows how long,
let go of the past,
and once and for all prepare for a new life adventure.
Yeah, but how?
If you don't already have these messages,
get them now.
Read all three:
