Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for October 16th

Keep out of harm’s way in the early going when the Moon in Cancer is meandering in void mode until 3:30AM (when the lunar orb enters fiery Leo). For the next 2+ days, tune into the joys of your heart, and the innocence of being a child who looks at the world with wonder and awe. A key test comes along around the time when Vesta in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces (9:15AM). Make sure your valuables are safe and secure. Double-check that flashlights have working batteries and first-aid kits are well-stocked. Don’t put your John Hancock on investment proposals as hidden clauses or misunderstandings may negate well-intentioned business negotiations. Strive for serenity in love bonds and primary partnerships during the monthly Moon-Juno union (10:51AM). A major astro-psychic news headline relates to the Inferior Conjunction of the Sun and Mercury (energizing 24 degrees of Libra at 1:41PM). The Inferior Conjunction is an astronomical name for an Earth, Mercury retrograde, and Sun line-up in the solar system that occurs three times in a calendar year and represents a New Mercury — in the phrase expressed by the eminent astrologer-masters of the twentieth century, Dr. Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar. Keep your mind open to receiving cosmic seed-ideas that can race through your consciousness like meteors lighting up the night sky. If you are looking for additional imaginative and intellectual power, those positive dynamics come into view when Mars forms an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with Neptune (3:43PM) followed by a Mercury-Neptune parallel (5:07PM) and a supportive, 60-degree connection from Mercury to Mars (6:50PM). Celebrate the arrival of today’s cornucopia of good vibrations by having an impromptu party with friends or family members. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

The Neptune in Pisces Peace Project

The Neptune in Pisces Peace Project

This is a lesson in understanding and forgiveness

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of pisces, neptune, blogs, astrology

I’ve been hearing more grumbling than usual among astrologers about the tenor of these times. A continuing stream of negative news seems to correspond with their worst fears about the difficult transits of this year.

First there’s the relentlessly disruptive Uranus-Pluto square that’s a powerful symbolic representation of the breakdown of social order. Add Saturn’s presence in scary Scorpio to darken and deepen shadows of doubt and fear. Plus we recently had a conjunction of Mars and Saturn, which sent a strong signal of disaster to many of the astrologically aware. It’s understandable, even for those of us living in middle-class comfort, to read the tea leaves of current events as another step in the disintegration of our world. So what can we do about it?

You play a part

I’ve been struggling to find a helpful place in the face of the latest round of conflict in the Middle East. My higher beliefs are that all is as it’s supposed to be, and that even pain and suffering are part of a larger and more benevolent plan. Yet when confronted with contemporary demons like radical fundamentalists, land-grabbing national leaders, environment-destroying CEOs, corrupt cops and politicians, bullies, abusers, greedheads and ignorant, insensitive individuals, I’ve been stuck between my desires to forgive and to fight. Clearly, there are destructive forces that I’m naturally inclined to oppose. Ideally, all of humanity is one and it’s not my job to apply judgment and separate myself from anyone.

I felt trapped between the extremes of engagement and disengagement. To oppose or embrace, that was my question. But then, at 8:43 p.m. on Wednesday, August 27, an idea arose and I found a place to be that neither ran from harsh realities nor ignored them. The thought was about Neptune in Pisces and realizing (once again) that the peace I’m seeking is within myself. That if I can come to terms with my own contradictions, neither surrendering to the lesser angels of separation nor giving in to the impotence of detachment, I could contribute to healing instead of blocking progress with blame.

The power is within you

The power to change the world lies within ourselves. There’s no position of loving understanding I can apply to murderers, rapists, and pillagers of nature until I find peace within myself. Neptune is the planet of forgiveness, and its presence in Pisces is a source of limitless compassion. The embrace of all of ourselves, including our darker sides, is where we can have the greatest impact. Each of us is minuscule in the vastness of the Universe, yet we each hold a unique position in it. The Self is the primary workplace, the environment in which our wisdom, love, and good wishes take root and grow.

The next time anger arises against a violent terrorist or greedy capitalist, turn your heart toward yourself and seek peace within. This is not the act of a pacifist refusing to engage the harsh realities of the world, it is a loving act of courage to face the demons of your own contradictions. The war you think you must fight with others is won in the battle to love yourself. This is the source of strength that can then be turned outwardly without the blindness of rage and the illusion of separation. It is the ground from which we grow, the source where we heal, become whole, and are able to offer the best of ourselves to one another.

Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Neptunalia

June 23rd


The Neptunalia venerates the divine God of the sea, Neptune. Originally a freshwater God, Neptune acquired his maritime status when he was identified with the Greek Poseidon. At Rome, there was a temple dedicated to Neptune in the circus Flaminius within the Campus Martius where his festivals were held on July 23 and December 1.

Neptune was one of only three Gods to whom a bull might be sacrificed (the others were Mars and Apollo). According to legend, he had a wife whose name was Salacia, Goddess of the salty sea and inland guardian of springs. It is believed that the Goddess Sulis, who is still worshiped at the sacred hot springs at Bath, may have been an aspect of Salacia.

Mighty Neptune, may it please,

Thee, the Rector of the Seas.

That my Barque may safely runne,

Through thy watrie-region;

And A Tunnie-fish shall be,

Offer’d up, with thanks to thee.

-Robert Herrick, “To Neptune, Hesperides” (1648)

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of June 9th

As Neptune turns retrograde on Monday, you might actually experience an awakening of sorts relating to your love life. If you have been fooling yourself over a specific situation, you’re about to gain exquisite clarity. Listen to your inner voice. On Friday, a Full Moon in Sagittarius will urge you to be true to your convictions above all else. If there is no integrity in your relationship then you’ll really second-guess it. Venus will oppose Saturn on this day, adding to the sober feel behind your approach to love. Then, Mars will square off with Pluto on Saturday. You might take rash action in an attempt to control your partner. Remember, in games of manipulation you’ll always lose.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You and your partner might not be on the same page this week when it comes to money and expenses. You seem to be in an acquisitive mindset, and, thankfully, these days you have favorable aspects supporting financial growth. The problem, however, is that you might begin to feel fiscally drained by your relationship. Perhaps your mate is going through a difficult time and is leaning on you for extra support. You might not appreciate the extra burden, and by Saturday it’ll be clear that you’re distressed about the situation. Talk it out.


Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

There might be a tug-of-war between you and your partner this week over how to divide responsibilities. Your mate in particular may feel that he or she is carrying all of the weight while you’re sitting pretty, benefiting from the hard work. If this is the case, it may be time to shower your sweetheart with extra appreciation and consideration. A relationship is about give and take. It’s time to be honest about how unbalanced the scales may be in your union.


Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

If there are any trouble spots in your love life, it may affect your health this week. Trying to sweep any issues under the rug will only hurt you in the long run — psychologically or even physically. If there is anything you and your sweetheart need to discuss, realize it’s time to speak up. If not, there may be resentment, and this can ultimately turn an otherwise loving partnership into a toxic mess. A Full Moon in your relationship sector on Friday will likely bring this matter to a head.


Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Love is serious business for you and it has been this way since October 2012, when Saturn began a tour of your romance sector. You’ve been in the process of defining what love really means to you and what your requirements are in a lover. There might be tests or obstacles that continue to arise between you and someone special. Perhaps your sweetheart lives in another state due to work or school obligations. Or, perhaps this is a lonely time for you, where it seems like love is eluding you completely. This week, anticipate a turning point. You’re ready to tackle an important lesson in love.


Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’ll have an easier time defining and sharing your most erotic longings with your partner. In fact, it’s possible by Friday that a romantic encounter with a lover will be nothing short of life-changing for you. This might be the beginning of a deeper, more meaningful connection that goes beyond the physical. Love often takes us by surprise when we least expect it. Whether you’re ready to fall in love or not, get ready. Here it comes.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You’re a hopeless romantic these days, thanks to enchanting Neptune making an extended visit to your partnership sector. You want to see only the best in your mate, and for someone with such a discerning personality, this is not necessarily a bad thing. This week, however, you might take off the rose-colored glasses long enough to notice a flaw in the actual human being you love. How do you handle it? With more love.


Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might struggle with your partner over a domestic matter this week. It appears you’ll push for what you want more than usual, which is not how you typically handle problems. You’re always so amenable, and more often than not you acquiesce to your partner in order to avoid conflict. This time, however, that approach will only leave a sour taste in your mouth. You’re ready to stick to your guns even if it means you’ll have to argue.


Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The pursuit of pleasure is surely on your agenda, and if single you can expect a lovely romantic encounter with someone who is artistic and even glamorous. If you’re in a relationship, however, there might be more work than play happening in your love life. On Friday, you might feel like you’ve got to earn your love and fun before you partake in any romantic delights. That’s fine. If you really insist on doing your chores first, go right ahead.


Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’ll be an open book this week, emotionally speaking. It’ll be easy for your partner to see what’s going on inside of you, and as a result you can expect more bonding potential with your sweetheart. If you experience a breakthrough or revelation about the status of your relationship, you won’t be able to hide this from your lover or anyone else. It’s time to be true to yourself. A Full Moon in your sign this Friday will help you.


Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might feel like you’re coming down from a romantic high as the week begins. While you’ll try your hardest to hold on to that loving feeling, by Friday it looks like there might be some trouble in paradise. Your lover might not enjoy the social activities you have planned, or might protest about hanging out with a friend of yours. You might also feel like you’re in a pickle when a pal asks you for help, but you’ve already committed to spending time with your sweetheart. Navigate carefully.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

A professional obligation might tear you away from domestic activities you’d rather attend. Instead of your mate supporting you, however, he or she might make you feel as if you’re always choosing work over family. This will lead to you feeling unappreciated and may cause a conflict. Remind your partner that the main reason you work so hard is to enable everyone you love to enjoy life’s pleasures. If your partner remains unaccommodating then you might have a larger problem to contend with.


Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your intuition regarding your love life will not steer you wrong this week. Neptune, the planet that rules our imagination and psychic sensibilities, will turn retrograde in your sign on Monday. As a result, you might experience a precognition about your lover or relationship that proves to be eye-opening. If there’s a decision you need to make about your love life, this is certainly a week when you can trust your gut.

Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, May 28th

Getting a handle on our feelings is tricky business once the Moon enters whimsical Gemini at 12:47 am EDT. Our curiosity motivates us to gather additional information but it’s difficult to apply what we learn. The New Moon at 2:40 pm tantalizes us with so many options we don’t know which one is best. However, a dynamic square between the restless Gemini Sun and dreamy Neptune in imaginative Pisces invites us to delve into our fantasies.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your dilemma seems quite real today, even if you’re feeling confident of your decision-making abilities. You think that you know what you want and it doesn’t appear too complicated but the Gemini New Moon occurs in your 3rd House of Information, scattering your thoughts and confusing your priorities. Achieving satisfaction isn’t as easy as it sounds because there’s a big difference between your personal goals and what others have to offer at this time. Your current happiness depends on your willingness to modify your highest ideals with what is actually possible.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your physical energy may be low today, leaving you to feel a bit discouraged. Perhaps your smartest strategy now is to simply take it easy and recharge your batteries. The breezy Gemini New Moon falls in your 2nd House of Resources, making it tough to tackle a significant project. Don’t waste too much time worrying about your lack of progress; your stamina should return soon enough. In the meantime, increase your chances for future success by getting some much-needed rest and relaxation

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are very aware that your emotions are affecting your productivity today as the flighty New Moon buzzes your 1st House of Personality. Your feelings shift with the breeze, making it nearly impossible to settle into your work. Your moods may continue to fluctuate, challenging you to maintain a calm demeanor. Minimize your frustration and avoid being overwhelmed by only taking on what you know you can finish. Limiting your goals now makes room for spiritual growth.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You may be so sensitive today that you feel under the weather for no particular reason. However, it’s crucial not to succumb to negativity with the Gemini New Moon falling in your 12th House of Spirituality, since circumstances are probably not as bad as they currently seem. Above all, remain honest; any attempts to stretch the truth will only backfire now. However, sharing your fantasies with a trustworthy friend can be an uplifting experience as long as you clearly differentiate your dreams from the facts.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

No matter how great you feel about your prospects today, your usual demonstration of courage and vitality may still be difficult to pull off as the Gemini New Moon muddies your 11th House of Community. Unfortunately, positive energy isn’t as readily available now. Ironically, bringing your self-doubt right out into the open can turn the day around. Others are more likely to offer a helping hand once you stop pretending that you have all the answers.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you may be operating on information overload, Neptune’s square to the Gemini New Moon in your 10th House of Public Responsibility makes it difficult to tell which data is useful to your career plans and which is not. It might even be impossible to discern fact from fiction now. Naturally, you want to deal with the real world based upon objective truth; however, your fuzzy thinking gets in the way of your progress today. Soften your stance and don’t push for clarity where there is none. The seeds of your next success story must be planted in your imagination first.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may grow more optimistic in thought and lighter on your feet as the day unfolds. However, you also might become confused about your future plans as the Gemini New Moon highlights your 9th House of Big Ideas. Unfortunately, you’re less able to tell what’s real and what is imagined today. Your thoughts come and go quickly now, so don’t worry if you can’t hold on to any of them. Attempting to control your mental meandering is an exercise in futility. Instead, drift along with the currents and enjoy the day for whatever joy and inspiration it brings.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might actually believe you can logically think your way around a current dilemma, but reason seems to break down just as the solution comes into sight. For now, it is practical reality versus creative imagination as the clever Gemini New Moon lands in your 8th House of Transformation; it’s difficult to hold on to both sides at the same time. Give yourself permission to entertain your dreams today, since they are a catalyst for the positive change you seek.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are being flooded by vivid images arising from your subconscious today. But you may feel as if a friend or partner is pushing you to do something that doesn’t really fit into your notion of reality. Someone might stir your anxiety as the inquisitive Gemini New Moon activates your 7th House of Companions. The more you try to figure out what it all means, the farther away the answers seem. Don’t take your lack of clarity too seriously, for it will pass soon enough. In the meantime, open your mind and enjoy the show.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

People usually trust your answers because you have plenty of common sense and seem to know exactly what to do in a time of crisis. However, you may be unclear about where to place your efforts as deceptive Neptune clouds today’s Gemini New Moon in your 6th House of Work. Your lack of confidence could lead you down the path of less resistance, which isn’t necessarily your intended direction. Allow yourself the luxury of wasting a little time now, even if it feels counterproductive. Your best solutions come when you’re not looking for them.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although you may be quick to leap out of bed and prepare for work today, something in the back of your mind could still be bothering you. Even if you don’t know what’s expected of you, the mischievous Gemini New Moon’s presence in your 5th House of Self-Expression is a cosmic reminder that you can be extremely creative if you let go of the details for a while. If you refuse to relinquish control, you could inadvertently invite unnecessary irritation. However, remaining open to change leads to rich and meaningful experiences.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

There’s no need to panic today, even if you don’t have your full game plan in place yet. In fact, expressing your fears might just make matters worse as the chatty Gemini New Moon culminates in your 4th House of Emotional Security. Unfortunately, you’re not fully in control of your immediate environment; the more you try to force something to go your way, the more resistance you encounter. Attempting to resolve an issue could make your frustration level soar; trust your psychic radar and just float through the uncertainty for a while longer.

New Moon in Gemini Horoscopes – Seize the brilliance of the May New Moon!

New Moon in Gemini Horoscopes

Seize the brilliance of the May New Moon!

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of new moon, moon, horoscopes, gemini, astrology


Fresh waves of information and bright ideas flow with the New Moon in intellectual Gemini on May 28, 2014. But it’s possible you will be inundated with data and overwhelmed with more facts than you can possibly digest!

Diffusive Neptune’s square to this lunation inspires imagination, but also makes it harder to deal with tough choices. Creativity and fantasy reign, while more practical matters might fall in the cracks of disinterest.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This Sun-Moon conjunction brings fresh breezes of ideas and information to your communicative 3rd House of Information. Managing the flow of data and the innumerable distractions of daily life could be a challenge in the weeks ahead. Nebulous Neptune’s distracting square to this lunation can fuzz facts and fill conversations with fantasies. Discerning the difference between faint hopes and realistic possibilities is a must.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’re usually pretty grounded when it comes to money, yet this jittery Gemini Moon occurs in your 2nd House of Finances to fill your head with schemes and dreams that might not be entirely practical. That’s because illusory Neptune makes a stressful square to this Sun-Moon conjunction, which is great for imagining fresh sources of income and self-worth that inspire your creativity at the cost of common sense.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

This New Moon in your sign is a breath of fresh air. It can supply you with ideas, information, and a different perspective on your appearance and relationships. Dreamy Neptune adds some inspiration that could, if you’re not discerning, lead you toward disappointment. Making good choices is the key to be able to apply the energy and information that’s promised by this brilliant Sun-Moon conjunction successfully.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your spiritual life and imagination are likely to be enlivened by this informative Gemini New Moon in your 12th House of Dreams. Make sure to take some private time to tune into the intuition that is more available to you now. Psychic abilities are enhanced with Neptune’s square to this Sun-Moon conjunction, but avoid falling into situations where you have to sacrifice too much of yourself in order to help others.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your relationships with friends and colleagues could be heading in new directions with this Gemini lunation in your 11th House of Groups. There’s a chance that you can be misled or scatter your attention too widely with this transit. However, you’re not going to be stuck for ideas with a lively, communicative community of people to inspire your thinking. Setting realistic priorities will keep you from wasting time and energy.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Professional matters could take a strange but interesting turn with this chatty Gemini New Moon in your 10th House of Career. Promises made may not be kept with illusory Neptune’s stressful square to this Sun-Moon conjunction. Still, if you apply your usual sense of practicality, you will recognize the difference between real opportunities in your work life and fantasies that probably will never come true.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Travel plans might be popping up with the restless Gemini New Moon in your 9th House of Faraway Places. A dream journey could be in the offing with imaginative Neptune’s square to this Sun-Moon conjunction. But this alignment could also represent confusion when you’re away from home. Education dreams can also be stirred now as your hunger for learning is likely to grow in the weeks to come.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Relationships may grow complicated with this diverse Gemini New Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Conditions for connecting or in a current partnership can change quickly. Of course, if you’re stuck is a less than fulfilling situation, this lunation may help you to dissolve your links with the past and get a fresh start with the one you’re with or in pursuit of a more meaningful personal or professional alliance.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

People could be jumping in and out of your life with this restless Gemini New Moon in your 7th House of Relationships. Your own feelings may well be inconsistent, which makes settling down with someone challenging. It is possible, though, that you get lost in a fantasy alliance where big dreams and high hopes are not grounded in reality. Look twice before making promises or leaping into a partnership.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This might not be the time when sticking to a rigid schedule is going to fulfill your needs. The organization that you generally like may be less interesting with this jittery Gemini New Moon in your 6th House of Work and Habits. Yes, you could feel like you’ve got too many items on your agenda to manage, but a flexible attitude and a dash of curiosity can open you up to fresh ways to handle your job and daily routine.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Get ready to play, show off your personality and demonstrate your imagination with this curious Gemini New Moon in your 5th House of Romance and Creativity. This is a time to open your heart and mind and to let your imagination run wild. Finding time and space to enjoy life and express yourself freely will be especially liberating. Just don’t take things too seriously in this delightful pursuit of pleasure.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This energetic Gemini New Moon lands in your 4th House of Home and Family to stir up fresh ideas about your past and to spark some changes in your domestic life. You might find yourself juggling even more balls than usual, which could become overwhelming. Of course, you need some fresh stimulation to keep you from getting bored, but don’t take on new activities without letting go of something old.
