Saturn - the planet representing the urge for security and safety, that is also known as the taskmaster teaching us the lessons we must learn in life, shows us what we are unsure of or truly fear, and forces us to find the means to acquire discipline, effort and sense of order so that we may overcome limitations and obstacles - began its RETROGRADE journey for 2011 very early this morning, 1/26 at 1:11 AM EST ...

The main thrust of a transiting Saturn retrograde is RESTRUCTURING our foundations ... since Saturn is the planet which represents systems and organizations, during its retrograde period the time has come to re-examine these areas and find ways to improve them ... it is now time for every one of us to restructure systems, programs, organizations, and even rules in order to make them function more efficiently ... processes and policies will all benefit from re-examination during this period ...

Just a reminder that Saturn is currently in its transit through the sign of Libra ... and the essence of this transit is being tested through relating ... needless to say relationships and partnerships both personal and public are going under the universal microscope for closer scrutiny - and haven't they been doing that since the end of December 2008 when we began a year long series of personal planet retrogrades and shadow points that often overlapped !!! ... in Libra, the greatest lesson Saturn will ultimately teach us is that of BALANCE in relationships ... letting give and take have equal power ... through these balancing acts, one will be able to determine and establish their place in the professional and personal landscape of their individual lives ... and Libra born individuals may especially be sensitive to this retrograde energy that is taking place in their birth sign ...

My fellow Capricorns, this begins our yearly period of "hibernation" or self introspection since this is our ruling planet ... what has been going on in your life since Saturn stationed back into direct motion last May 30th, 2010 ... what have you been working on and possibly rebuilding and restructuring that now needs some re-examination to determine whether or not you are on the right track or producing the desired results you are working towards ??? ... or what did you start working on during the last Saturn retrograde period -January 13th, 2010 through May 30th, 2010 - that now MUST be addressed and either improved upon or simply let go of in order to facilitate personal growth ???

Saturn retrogrades roughly every 12 1/2 months for a period of about 4 1/2 months ... Saturn remains retrograde until June 12th of this year ... Saturn remains in the sign of Libra until October 5th, 2012 ... Saturn teaches every one of us different but difficult lessons in life ... but if you keep your feet firmly planted and try to stay positive and understand that the "light at the end of the tunnel" usually signifies greater personal as well as spiritual growth, you will definitely come through a much stronger person and better for the lessons you have taken seriously and made great personal effort to learn from ... you will certainly be better equipped to deal with life and its many challenges !!!

Jupiter - the benevolent planet representing growth, the law, beliefs, ethics, expansion, opportunity, wealth, faith, higher education, travel, religion, philosophy, joy, goodwill, excessive behavior and down right luck - re-entered and began its complete transit through the highly driven, fiery, creative, courageous and initiative oriented sign of Aries early this afternoon, 1/22, at 12:11 PM EST... the opportunity for growth and expansion through new beginnings is now ablaze !!! ... since it was last summer, June 6th to be exact, that it began its initial transit through Aries, here is a review of what we can expect :

Jupiter in Aries is often heroic, sometimes militant, very generous, given to executive ability and a talent for leadership, and has a strong drive for freedom of personal actions ... one can learn from past errors and profit from them ... there could be innovations in the areas of philosophy, education and spiritual endeavors ... one must guard against "me-first" tendencies and channel this energy into ways to inspire and help others ... one must also guard against being rash, impetuous, willful and trying to convince others that your "truth" is the absolute and only truth ...

The highest expression of Jupiter in Aries is a pure, creative spirit from where everything else is manifested ... the phrase "Behold I make all things new" is the spiritual implication made with this energy ... there is an enduring faith here in the possibility of regeneration and rebirth yielding a better way of life ... the faith bestowed through this energy is the unwaivering ability to overcome and "to become" giving the courage to embark on large scale endeavors that would not be attempted by others ... another highly appropriate phrase for this energy is "fools rush in where angels fear to tread" given the highly driven energy to make things better ... the caveat of this highly driven energy is carelessness and overconfidence yielding losses in business and friendships, along with a urge for impulsive spending and wasting of investment resources ...

The essence of Jupiter in Aries is growth and expansion through doing !!! ... action, assertion and self-expression are valued ... beliefs are based on personal experience ... one may idolize doing their own thing, pioneering and independence ... realistic self-confidence can enhance leadership skills and yield growth through confidently doing ones own thing ... the child-like enthusiasm and faith can take one far in life ... the basic principle of faith here is that Life supports those who actually live it ... what is important is that one gets things going and ensures that others will keep them going while they continue to keep leading onward ... this energy likes active occupations, travel, forward-thinking people, and optimism ... it dislikes people who just sit around, being household bound, dead-ends, pessimism and those who are not stout hearted ... the energy of Jupiter in Aries can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: crusading, exhorting, adventurous, aspiring, enthusiastic, honorable, generous, thinking big, enterprising, unshakable, innovative, self-sufficient, carefree, noble

NEGATIVE: self-righteous, bullying, overbearing, high-handed, over-optimistic, ill-prepared, rash, naive, gives only to impress, extravagant, boastful, over-confident, stubborn, careless

Ones ability to overcome even the most devastating problems can give rise to new ideas and new found strength ... what inspires one is where they are going and in turn what inspires others is how you choose to get there even through all the hard knocks and falls !!!

Aries born, this is your time where growth, expansion, illumination and down right luck could possibly come your way - keep your eyes and ears open along with your mind to the vast array of possibilities you may encounter ... you are now being encouraged and infused with a sense that the time has come to get up and bust a move !!! - this added opportunity won't be back around for 12 years once the transit is over this summer !!! ... and don't forget that, with Jupiter in the picture, there usually is a guardian angel sitting on your shoulder !!! ... Sagittarian born Sun signs, Moon signs, and Ascendent born - like yours truly !!!! - we may also really feel this energy since Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and thus means we are being tested with new energy to either express our ego, connect with our emotional side in a different manner, or project ourselves more confidently and/or aggressively out into the world for all to see !!!

Jupiter remains in the sign of Aries until June 4th ... we've already experienced a taste of what this energy is about and can manifest with Jupiter being in Aries last summer from June 6th through September 9th ... so now is the time to be truly open and inspired to action and new projects that will provide personal growth and forward movement not only for yourself  but others as well ... just remember that Uranus will soon be transiting Aries along with Jupiter, so proceed with caution and be warned - don't move too far too fast !!! ... and let's all certainly say a collective prayer that Jupiter in Aries is used positively to further growth for mankind rather than fueling useless and destructive agressive energy resulting in wars - especially once Uranus enters the picture in March !!!

the Sun began its transit through the bold, progressive sign of Aquarius this morning, 1/20 at 5:19 AM EST ... in this sign one may want to shine in varoius ways ... shining uniquely and inventively - ones avenues for recognition and attention are likely to be unique to oneself, and self-expression is tied to a need for freedom to experiment ... shining by seeking recognition rebelliously or independently - one may fight against standard methods for "success" or "fame" thus seeking recognition as a rebel ... shining futuristically - one is likely to be ego-involved with progress achieving recognition through forward-looking activities or ideas that include working with new technology or anything that is perceived as being on the cutting edge of change ... shining by being rational - one may achieve recognition for their objectivity, logic and intellectual detachment where creativity could possibly be directed towards innovative approaches to humanitarian causes and social welfare carefully analyzing options without any emotional bias ... and whether you are born under this natal energy or simply incorporating it into your own natal energy by transit, you will certainly be seen as one of the "different ones" ...

Aquarius is a masculine, fixed air sign ... its glyph is the waves of electricity or to some waves of water ... anatomically it rules the shins, ankles and the circulatory system ... its key phrase is "I know" and its keyword is "imagination" ... Aquarius is the sign directly opposite to Leo in the natural zodiac ...

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus - the first modern planet being discovered in 1781 ... it was named after the ancient Greek sky God - the first ruler of the Universe ... its pictoral symbol is that of the Water-bearer - dispensing a gift that flows freely and equally to all representing the creation and the giving of life ... Uranus is the planet which rules the nervous system, inventions, originality, science, electricity, magic, the occult, light, ASTROLOGY!!!, psychology, x-rays, airplanes and insight into the laws of nature ... it is futuristic, humanitarian, intellectual, eccentric, bohemian, egotistical and utopian ... it governs creative will, sudden change, revolution and dictators, individualism, ingenuity, rebellions and autonomy ... its action is sudden, unexpected and often violent ... it is a breaker of tradition ... recent studies have shown that Uranus is also associated with natural disasters ...

Aquarius is the natural sign and ruler of the 11th house of the horoscope ... it is a house of group relationships whose keyword is social consciousness ... it reflects your capacity for friendship, your attitude toward your friends and acquaintances and all non-emotional relationships ... it indicates what you most desire in life, your goals, the love you receive as well as money obtained from your profession or business ... the 11th house also shows step, foster, and adopted children, and also circumstances over which you have little to no control ... it represents your humanitarian interests, the way you see others, large and small organizations, and the clubs you belong to, which may somehow relate to your career ...

The Sun sign describes the center of ones being - the Will ... it shows what dwells in or lies close to your heart and what gives your life a sense of creative purpose ... it is symbolic of ones Spirit ... so whether natally born with or experiencing this energy through a transit, the essence of the Sun in Aquarius is living through liberating ... the goal here, being energy of the Water-bearer and Water symbolizing the emotions, is to experience and express ones feelings without getting "wet" - to avoid being emotionally biased, overly attached or becoming upset ... the Sun is actually considered in its detriment in Aquarius because the Will can lose itself in the vast "sky" of ones urge to be free ... more than any other sign, Aquarius holds the key to what it truly means to be a human being ... but most important of all is the seeking of freedom for oneself through developing a greater sense of what life on Earth is all about ... and ironically, one being under this energy is all about discovering the love of humanity while not being so keen on one-to-one relationships ... the energy of the Sun in Aquarius can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: impartial, cool, broad-minded, fair judge, friendly, gregarious, humanitarian, democratic, reformist, idealistic, inventive, original, unaffected, convincing, intuitive, outwardly calm, clownish, free-thinking, free-loving, open-ended

NEGATIVE: avoids intimacy, aloof, non-committal, emotionally inept, impersonal, anti-social, lacks sympathy, hypocritical, reactionary, impractical, cranky, elitist, mocking, imposes ideas, cutting, secretly anxious, sarcastic, catty, flighty, pointless

Aquarian born individuals, this is the beginning of your new - a fresh start - HAPPY SOLAR RETURN !!! ... the Sun will remain in the sign of Aquarius until February 18th ... ok everyone, NOW is the time to be a "rebel" in your own unique and creative style !!!

Mars began its transit through the sign of Aquarius yesterday afternoon, January 15th, at 5:41 PM EST ... Mars functions well in Aquarius, perhaps a little too well at times, since it is an Air sign and what does Air do???? ... that's right, it gives life to Fire!!! ... the last time Mars moved through the sign of Aquarius was February/March of 2009 !!! ... no telling what kind of aggressive actions will be manifested with Mars being influenced by the energy of the ruling planet of Aquarius - Uranus the planet of the sudden and unexpected !!! ... this energy of Mars is expressed on a mental plane ... actions may be quick, but one must be committed intellectually ... this energy makes one very people-oriented and often involved in a wide variety of projects ... usually there is some element of reform or fighting for freedom somewhere in the outlook ... Mars in Aquarius can be high-strung and unpredictable creating a struggle between wanting to do things independently and getting involved in group activities ... one usually tries to deal with sexual relationships here rationally but may swing back and forth between passionate involvement and detachment ... this energy often bestows acute insight into human nature ...

Mars in Aquarius is naturally independent, unconventional and unique ... being a distinct individual is essential with this energy ... spontaneous inclination is geared towards tolerance, openness, and a willingness to fight for equal opportunity ... identity is tied to progress, the future and anything new and on the cutting edge ... there is a strong need for free expression and broad perspectives ... passion sometimes ends up being sidetracked into a detached or scientific perspective ... physical energy and sexual drive are fueled by variety, mental stimulation, freedom, experimentation and the possibility of something new and moving towards the future ... one needs openness and free flow in life here ...

The essence of Mars in Aquarius is getting through liberating ... here we have the freedom fighter - the leader of the pack !!! ... one is usually willing to go out on a limb to get what they want when inspired by this energy ... what truly motivates one here is having to "buck" some kind of system - be it family, partners, friends or anything that seems to be limiting ones freedom ... without sufficient freedom ones personal vital energies become blocked up inside ... one is often motivated by goals for the common good that often involve benefitting all forms of life in addition to human ... ultimately ones interest in onesself must be aligned with the interest of others ... the ultimate lesson of this energy is that inventiveness and the quickness with which one learns from their mistakes become shining examples of how human beings can best get along in this world!!! ... the energy of Mars in Aquarius can be expressed in the following ways:

POSITIVE: independent, unconventional, complex, original, progressive, reformist, humanitarian, idealistic, resolute, resourceful, group leader, co-operative, surprising, high-spirited, active, stimulating, sexually free, sexually experimental, non-possessive, cool

NEGATIVE: cantankerous, perverse, contrary, peculiar, impatient, rebellious, superficial, escapist, inconstant, loner, unco-operative, erratic, disruptive, indolent, shocking, sexually loose, sexually irresponsible, unfeeling, cold

Aquarian born individuals, remember you are being infused with an extra shot of energy - like you really need it with Uranus being your ruling planet !!! - for the next five and a half weeks which may enable you to get a lot of productive work accomplished - just don't run over the rest of us!!! ... Mars remains in the sign of Aquarius until February 22nd ... perhaps many of us will realize during this transit that the purpose of being alone is to discover that ultimately one is for all and all is for one !!!

Sagittarian born, the "love light " is shining on you for the next few weeks ... you just might get what you "desire" !!! ... while Venus transits Sagittarius it is important to remember to set a higher value on yourself which ultimately may lead to others appreciating you more ... one will be truly loved for expressing how one truly feels about oneself ... identify your ideals and needs and seek to express them ... understand that love grows through its own trials ... and since we are at the beginning of a new year, what better energy to use to explore all the possibilities our passion is stirred up to pursue ... Venus remains in the sign of Sagittarius until February 21st - seek out what is truly in your heart !!!
