Pluto square Uranus March 16 2015; Spring Is Coming…

weatherJust a reminder, in case you forgot why things are so very intense again.

March 16, 2015 – Uranus 15 Aries 18, square Pluto 15 Capricorn 18


“lord of the underworld/soul level change” in the sign of Capricorn “status quo/discipline/rules time & space and structure” is squaring Uranus “the awakener/revolution, eccentric electric lightening strike changes” in the sign of Aries “the Ram, charging forward, the warrior, impulsive, leap then look, initiator”.

Astrological weather…

7 direct squares over three years.

We are coming up on the 7th of the squares.
Mars, planet of initiation and war will also be in the mix; plus an eclipse at the karmic 29th degree of Pisces four days later on the 20th right in time for Spring Equinox.

The karmic (or The Anaretic Degree) is the last degree of a sign (each sign or house goes from 0-29 degrees) and signifies a lesson that one is very close to mastering.

This is the most strong-willed, positive, dedicated, humanitarian degree for Pisces.

In addition in this case 29 degrees Pisces is also the moment right before Spring.

So the evolutionary/revolutionary energy of the square, the forward motion of Mars in Aries, and the eclipse can be seen to be colored by the spiritually positioned Piscean energy in that eclipse, that breath before the new, into the seeding of Spring.


star burst

Power and control, soul evolution, status quo vs sudden changes, call to revolution and upheaval, conflict, resolution, need for new perspectives…and the connection to a higher octave of all of it.

Alrighty then…nothing to see here move along. 🙂

How have you been feeling? Any changes in your life? Where are things for you now since 2012, with 6 of the 7 completed?

The landscape of my life has certainly changed. Some major players have left the stage, some new characters and entirely new chapters have been added. Theme and variation. I am curious how the rest of 2015 will play out. I keep thinking of moving to a different country, seriously…not out of wanting to leave here (why leave Hawaii??) but because I keep hearing a call.

I’m a little crispy around the edges but even so I don’t think I’m done cooking yet. Maybe it’s time to turn the heat down some, let me simmer in luxurious sweet juices.


As always Remember to breathe.

Chiron in Pisces and the upcoming September Pisces full moon 2014












I was researching Chiron in Pisces tonight. I was doing this for a couple of reasons. One is that Chiron is currently in Pisces; it has been for a while now, this is interacting once again with our seemingly ever present Uranus-Pluto square, and creating levels of personal and planetary growth that I sometimes wonder how to make it through!

The other reason is that I also have my sun in Pisces and so I have been experiencing Chiron conjunct my sun in Pisces on and off for a (seems like a l-o-n-g) while now and it’s non-trivial to say the least.

The last reason may seem funny but I’m nothing if not a little odd. 🙂

I rescued a sick and soaking wet little abandoned kitten (now named Freddie Mercury) a couple months ago from the jungle (literal jungle as I live in rural Hawaii) and realized based on his age that he was born most likely the week of my birthday this year and therefore is not only a Pisces but was born with Chiron in Pisces conjunct both my Chiron and my sun. (He’s much healthier and much bigger than when I found him.)

Hence the research.


So it’s been a wild ride yes?

We are just starting to recover from our recent Hurricane in my corner of the world, and the rest of the planet seems to be in the throes of some amazing birth contractions; many seem very painful, not just to the people directly involved but to all of us as we feel these deep wounds being accessed.

Chiron is the wounded healer and Pisces is all about oneness so we are going to feel these things much more acutely than we might have in the past.

How have you been doing?

Are you feeling any pain and fear from places outside of yourself?

If so you can use this awareness to both release all that is not your own energy (to keep you sane) while at the same time sending loving kindness and healing energy to all the places in your life or the lives of others of which you may be keenly aware.

How about from inside of yourself?

That one will be easier if you let go of everything else first of course; even then it may still be felt as a deep longing and calling for healing internally that can not be easily denied.

One way to address this is to reimagine your concept of God/Goddess/The Universe/The Most High

Do you have a concept of God that is big enough to handle all the intense paradox involved in the incredible evolving human spirit of joy; while at the same time holding you up amidst the incredible pain and sadness that is playing out across our experience?

I ask these questions because it’s been part of my path of late, I am definitely in a process of updating my concept of God(s). I need to, because my concept will limit my experience if it isn’t big enough.

I have updated my concept of God several times in my life, always with extraordinary results. God is always going to be bigger than my concept and yet it is still a powerful process to undertake.

I can sometimes get too intellectual about God, too conceptual and not intimate enough. I’m officially going for the intimacy.

I invite you to join me in courting the Divine  (or the Beloved or dear Friend as Hafiz or Rumi would say).

All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadows and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.
Make a new water-mark on your excitement
And love.

Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.

Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire

While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of

— Hafiz

From: ‘The Subject Tonight is Love’
Translated by Daniel Ladinsky

From this site

Seek and find a large grand all encompassing God/dess that is bigger than anything in your path; One who can truly give wise counsel and keep you aloft in a storm.

The upcoming new full moon in September will also be in Pisces which means it will be conjunct Chiron in Pisces. This is the “third time is a charm” last “Supermoon” of the year.

Chiron in Pisces conjunct Full moon in Pisces (September 8th in Hawaii, September 9th in the UK) is a perfect time to address these times and trials both personal and global with the support and backing of profound Universal Love, and also an energized Divine Feminine principle (strongly emphasized based on some of the other more esoteric astrology coming into play).











Returning to my earlier comments, here is a link to a really compelling article I ran across that talks about the concepts regarding the last time Chiron was in Pisces in the 60’s.

There are some great insights in the article and I especially liked some of the comments about the Beatles, near the end of the article.

And as always if you want healing or counseling support in your journey please give me a call or email me to set up an appointment, or if you prefer you can download and use my MP3’s on grounding, centering, and transformation to help you navigate the twists and turns of these days.

Be well.

Blessed be and Aloha,

Gold energy world healing to sooth the Uranus Pluto Square.

Happy Earth Day!

I had such strong intuition this week to get this out into the world that I changed the order that I am releasing my recordings.

At the bottom of this post I am including the information for the next MP3, this one was a collaboration between myself and the award winning Reiki Harpist Cymber Lily Quinn.

The meditation included is one that I have been using for years and many of you may have done with me, in session or ritual.  I call it the Gold Ribbon Meditation. It will give you a very powerful way to not only sooth your own energy but also send much needed gold light to the various places on the planet that are now or have been in turmoil and pain.

With the Pluto Uranus square upon us once again and all that comes with that in the world around us, it became clear that we all need some options for healing in a way that is positive and immediate.

So I am putting a call out for all of you that read this to…

I am Changing this…this is now a free download. I realized I wanted this to be available for anyone who wanted it. Click on the image to access it on Soundcloud.


This is a very special recording, Cymber Lily Quinn is an incredible healer in her own right, and she did the Reiki Harp background just for this recording, to match and enhance the power of the words and imagery.

I hope you to join us in the healing journey. Please pass this on to your friends. Thank you!

Spring astrological weather…Mars, Sun, Uranus and Venus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn March 2013

astrological weather

The time leading up to spring has been an interesting one astrologically. There were times over the last month there it seemed like the whole sky was in Pisces!

Well OK not the whole sky, but on that new moon (on Monday the 11th) the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune, and Chiron were ALL in Pisces! Which kinda felt like the whole sky to me :).


If you felt spacey and less in touch with “reality” than you were used to, that could have been why. For me (Pisces that I am with Mercury in Pisces) it was kinda nice to have the world share some of my odd perspective hahahaha.

Since that new moon things have shifted a lot. Mars moved from Pisces (where it’s not its happiest) into its home sign of Aries (where it is very happy) it hasn’t been in Aries in two years so that is a big shift in energy.

Then Mercury stopped its retrograde motion on St. Patrick’s Day, and started going direct (yay) (it will still be in amorphous Pisces for a little while yet since being in retrograde moved it to the early degrees of Pisces.)

Spring Equinox

Now (as I am writing this) the sun moves into Aries on March 20th and starts the astrological year anew at the vernal equinox. So we add that player to the party; the next day March 21st, Venus gets all fiery as she also moves into Aries (think Aphrodite as Xena).

The energy of Venus in Aries.












Plus Uranus (remember good old Uranus planet of sudden abrupt changes and revolution) is already in Aries and will be for quite a while; and on the 21st Mars (planet of energy and war/warriors) and Uranus (sudden electric insight and revolution) are meeting up in that conjunction kind of dance. Alrighty then.

This means the Sun, Venus, Mars (and eventually Mercury but not for a while yet) are all in Aries and one by one they will conjunct the revolutionary and eccentric Uranus.

Mars Square Pluto

Next week on the 26th Mars squares Pluto (you haven’t forgotten about Pluto right?? No not the dog!! Pluto Lord of the underworld poster child for intensity, who evokes deep cellular and soul level changes and is representative of metamorphosis and our souls’ evolution. Right I didn’t think you’d forgotten Pluto.

This is all activating that Pluto/Uranus square that is going in and out of focus and is the background for social change that’s going on until 2015 (for a reminder and more backstory on the Pluto/Uranus transit you can read my blog post from September).

Pluto is in stern, structured and rule loving Capricorn. So that creates tension for leap before you look, “let’s get goooooooing” Mars in Aries.

But wait there’s more 😉

Order now and we’ll throw in a super special two for one Sun and Venus join that already happening square on March 31st.

Easter Sunday oh my…

Yes you heard right boys and girls…On March 31st (Easter for some) The Sun (our identity, our own personal self), Venus (what we love, find beautiful and compelling), and Uranus (lightning bolt out of left field to over throw the status quo and start the revolution) are square (ie angle of interest, maximum tension, contrast) Pluto in Capricorn.

Do what you can to breath through all this; remember you don’t need to change every single thing in your world before breakfast, and if something looks really good, take another breath and then move toward it. No need to chase something down blindly, let yourself be mindful even with all this Aries go go go energy and even though Uranus is saying “Rules?? who needs these stinking rules?” Pluto in Capricorn is holding the truth and consequences card (“instant Karma’s gonna get you”). Use the energy wisely, there is a lot here.

So this is a big big spring, lots starting lots being challenged lots changing. Both personally and globally.

When we now look back on the 60’s we can see the social changes in retrospect. 10-20 years from now this time we are living in will be most likely be seen in a similar fashion. Harder to see when you’re living right in it.

And I haven’t even begun to talk about Chiron in Pisces. That’s for another time.

blessings and aloha




Exact square Uranus and Pluto, September 2012 astrology.

Butterfly effect - Erika GinnisAt the end of this post you will find links to four 15 minute Youtube videos from Rick Levine (a fabulous astrologer) that gets recorded monthly back in my old home town area in the PNW. There is so much going on this month OMG!!

I am going to give a synopsis of the some aspects of the upcoming astrology he talks about for those of you who can’t watch the videos right now; but still want some insight. Please do check the videos out, these guys (normally they present together “Rick Levine and Jeff Jawer” but this month it is just Rick Levine) are two of my favorite astrologers and do such a great service by posting the hour long monthly astrology each month. I LOVE them.

September 2012

We are feeling the effects of the powerful Pluto/Uranus square. Uranus planet of revolution, shock, upheaval, lightning, electricity, squares Pluto; planet of transformation, metamorphosis, evolution, and intensity. This will occur 7 times up through 2015, and this month we have one of the exact aspects. This month is the second exact square on September 18th.

The outer planets (of which Pluto and Uranus are two) set up global social economic issues.

The square is the angle of maximum stress which then can bring forth maximum creativity to resolve that stress. These aspects with these specific planets create the framework for social transformation and social revolution.
