                                               2016 Yearly Overview

Transit Jupiter goes retrograde (backwards) soon after the New Year January 07, 2016 EST. Jupiter brings us benefits and when it goes retrograde it can bring too much into our lives. In this case Jupiter is in the sign of Virgo which rules diet, exercise, health and pets as well as those who work with us. There could be an outbreak around this date of disease that deals with us and our pets. Previous methods to deal with these health issues may no longer work. Be sure to get updated with your vaccines and be sure to wash your hands before putting anything into your mouth. This will be a time of redoing or readdressing issues of health and wellbeing that we thought had been taken care of in modern times….not so much now.

A Solar Eclipse occurs March 08, 2016 EST at 19 degrees Pisces. Pisces is a water sign and rules fluids of all types, medications, alcohol, dreams and ideology. The energy here is about dissolving issues. The emphasis now will be on pharmaceutical companies. There could be an increase in storms that deal with large volumes of water, flooding and animals that live in and around the water.

Transit Jupiter is trine (great angle) Transit Pluto March 16, 2016 EST and June 26, 2016 EDT. This is a great time when those in authority over you like Governments and CEO’s decide to expand in some manner. This can be an increase in infrastructure, research or investment that will benefit those who work for them.

Transit Jupiter is squaring (conflict angle) Transit Saturn March 23, 2016  and May 26, 2016 EDT. Think of Jupiter as the planet of expansion, if there is too much of something, Jupiter is bound to be involved. Saturn on the other hand is the planet of restrictions and the father figure in a chart. With this conflict angle between the two planets there will be some difficulties that come from this. Saturn rules Governments, rules and regulations, the father figure, those in authority over you.

This angle brings conflict when working with too many ideas to be able to produce a major working draft for security and how Governments and CEO’s now must function to move forward in these changing times.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs March 23, 2016 EDT at 03 degrees Libra.  Lunar Eclipses are more emotional than physical in nature and will draw on your emotional needs. Libra deals with partnerships, cooperation, justice and the need to find balance.

According to William Lilly in 1652 and the effects of Lunar Eclipses when they happen in the Decanates of every Sign, this eclipse will be in the first decanate of Libra:

In the first Decanate, hail storms, ill weather, turbulent winds, violent tempests, very harmful.

Transit Saturn (Governments and rules) goes Retrograde (backwards) March 25, 2016 EDT. This will be a time that those in authority will review what they have in place and decide if more or less is required once Saturn goes direct in August 2016.

Transit Pluto goes Retrograde (backwards) April 17, 2016 EDT. Expect some setbacks in Government’s that need to make major reform. This will be a time of review and perhaps back peddling on their parts. Global markets may take a bit of a hit around this date.

Transit Jupiter goes Direct (forward in motion) May 09, 2016 EDT. Jupiter brings good luck and opportunities our way. To use this energy in the most opportune manner it would be best to accept any opportunities that come your way around this date. In fact with Jupiter moving direct now you may have multiple opportunities to explore this year.

Transit Neptune goes Retrograde (backwards in motion) June 13, 2016 EDT. This energy is about having to revise your dreams and expectations. There is information out there that is being hidden or kept from the masses. Don’t be surprised if they don’t like it when their ideals don’t manifest and they see them slipping away.

Transit Saturn squares (conflict angle) transit Neptune June 17, 2016 and September 10, 2016 EDT. Saturn rules regulations, blockages, those in authority over us, restrictions and older solid heritages. Neptune on the other hand is all about dreams, ideology, spirituality and the need to escape hardship. With the conflict angle this energy is all about people fleeing the harsh regulations and blockages to their ideas and ideology. This in turn causes conflict around these dates.

Transit Uranus goes retrograde (backwards in motion) July 29, 2016 EDT.  This will be a time for review and if the facts don’t stack up correctly the younger people will go back to their previous attacks. This may be a time of more opposition and a time when their movements will be reviewed.

Transit Saturn goes Direct (forward in motion) August 13, 2016 EDT. This will be a time that Governments and those in authority will decide if more or less is required. Any rules or regulations they had constructed during the Saturn retrograde period may now be put into place. A smoother transition should occur.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs August 18, 2016 EDT at 25 degrees Aquarius. Aquarius rules humanitarian issues, freedom, unusual ideas, sudden inspiration as well as the wind and air. Lunar Eclipses are more emotional than physical in nature and will draw on your emotional needs.

According to William Lilly in 1652 and the effects of Lunar Eclipses when they happen in the Decanates of every Sign, this eclipse will be in the third decanate of Aquarius:

In the third Decanate, a wonderful change in all affaries, yet notwithstanding, it imports the change better than to continue as formerly, and argues relaxation from former oppression.

A Solar Eclipse occurs September 01, 2016 EDT at 09 degrees Virgo. Virgo rules health, diet, exercise, pets, those who work with and for us, critical thinking and service that we do for others around us. Around this date there may be some emphasis on grains, GMO foods and other items that we ingest. This would be a great time to streamline your dietary intake. There may be a new discovery around this date in the area of metabolism and obesity that could help many people.

Transit Jupiter enters the sign of Libra September 09, 2016 EDT. This energy is all about making new partnerships and expanding our associations with others. There will need to be a sense of fair play and justice to the interchanges that join up now. If that fairness can’t be found between the two parties then they won’t form a lasting exchange, rather they will just tolerate each other.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs September 16, 2016 EDT at 24 degrees Pisces. Pisces is a water sign and rules fluids of all types, medications, alcohol, dreams and ideology. Lunar Eclipses are more emotional than physical in nature and will draw on your emotional needs.  The energy here is about dissolving issues.

According to William Lilly in 1652 and the effects of Lunar Eclipses when they happen in the Decanates of every Sign, this eclipse will be in the third decanate of Pisces:
In the third Decanate, robberies equally committed both at Sea, and on the dry land.

Transit Pluto goes Direct (forward in motion) September 26, 2016 EDT. Now will be a great time for Governments to move forward with any plans that they had previously on reform.  Interest rates may increase now as those who are greedy want their part of the pie. This in turn could cause the wobbly global economy to tip and start its slide downwards.

Transit Neptune goes Direct (forward in motion) November 19, 2016 EST. This will be a time to move forward with all those great ideas and see your dreams realized. It will look like all that hard work was worth it. A new spirituality could start around this date.

Transit Jupiter is squaring (conflict angle) transit Pluto November 24, 2016 EST. This energy is about becoming quite stubborn and restricted in spiritual and religious issues. This is about people who have no tolerance for those who don’t believe as they do. Power is vital to their well-being and they want to be the ones in power.

Transit Saturn is trine (great angle) transit Uranus December 24, 2016 EST. Here the unique brilliance and inventive nature of Uranus is structured by Saturn to something that can become quite practical and useful, causing others to wonder why no one ever thought of doing this previously. Convention is respected now, but people aren’t limited by the rules and regulations around them, rather they will build their own unique structure to work with.

Transit Jupiter is opposing (difficult angle) transit Uranus December 29, 2016 EST. This aspect can cause people to revolt and cause problems breaking all the rules, but on the other hand may in turn trigger the masses to help in huge humanitarian efforts that could bring about real change for those involved.

Transit Uranus goes Direct (forward in motion) December 29, 2016 EST. This is a time when there will be a major shakeup. Issues that deal with Uranus will move forward again, but may have a jump start so to speak. Watch the electrical grid now as it may experience a surge so to speak.

Well that seems to be it for the main themes in 2016. I want to wish you all a wonderful year ahead. Enjoy! Bev.

                                                 2015 Yearly Overview

Transit Saturn starts 2015 in the sign of Sagittarius. You may decide to take long journeys to open your mind and learn about others. As well those in other countries could pull your Government into action in some manner this year mainly due to belief systems and the need of freedom for people repressed.

This could be a difficult time for those in Governments or Authority figures who don’t loosen up but rather stick to their previous rigid approach. This is a time for us all to structure our life by incorporating our ideals into more practical daily life. It may be tempting to assume that we know it all now, and may instead become narrow minded unless you are open to new discoveries about yourself and the world around you. There may be some legal issues with those in Authority or Government.

Transit Jupiter is trine (great angle) Uranus March 03, 2015 and June 22, 2015 EST. This is a great time when people can receive unexpected news in regards to benefits or money windfalls. There will be some sudden opportunities that you can seize but you must act on them. You may also travel quite unexpectedly and enjoy unusual experiences that expand your perception and belief system.

Transit Saturn (Governments and rules) goes Retrograde (backwards) March 14, 2015 EST. This will be a time that those in authority will review what they have in place and decide if more or less is required once Saturn goes direct in August.

Again as in 2012, 2013 and 2014 Transit Uranus in Aries squares (conflict angle) Pluto in Capricorn March 16, 2015 EST. To start the energy of Uranus in Aries is about wanting to seek freedom at any cost. This can cause complete severance with anything that you were familiar with in the past. This is about being blunt and outspoken, where folks will not be as considerate of others. Uranus in this sign will like to make independent fresh starts, especially if they shake up anything that is old and familiar (but boring).

This is about shaking up patterns that have been laid down over years and is about sweeping out the old and bringing in the new. Aries rules younger males, men in uniform, fire, anger, blood, war, the act of cutting and surgery. Pluto on the other hand brings endings and transforms what was to what will be. Pluto does this whether you want it or not, no holds barred……..change will occur. Pluto in Capricorn rules Government spending, how a country and corporation is financed, rules and regulations that govern these areas. There could very well be a global banking correction around this date.

The square combines these two energies through a conflict of sorts. No one wants to budge and they’re ready to fight for it. Change will come, but not quietly or easily. The changes that occur now may be a result of social and economic forces that are beyond your control. You may feel that you are being swept along by events you can do nothing about, but the events will have a vital role in your own individual development that you’ll be able to trace back to these dates.

An outer planet is being triggered now, with the global unrest, as it isn't just one area or country rather it’s systemic. On looking further I noticed that those born from 1988-1995 had Uranus (sudden events) in Capricorn (Governments and rules). As we speak this Natal planet (for that generation) is experiencing a square (conflict angle) with transit Uranus in Aries (military, fighting, fires etc.), at the same time it’s joining with transit Pluto in Capricorn (Governments).

March 20, 2015 EST has a Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Pisces. This is a critical degree within one degree of the Aries Point 0 degree Aries. When an Aries Point is triggered, the general public can find that they are swept along by the events that occur on that date. Another Aries Point was triggered on 9/11 and the world was forever changed from that event. Since the degree triggered is in the sign of Aries, those of the public involved will be males in uniform or connected by areas ruled by Mars. In this case those in fire and rescue, wearing uniforms, dealing with metal and blood. In this case the eclipse degree is the final degree of Pisces dealing with liquids and water. Take care around this date with any liquids that could become explosive in nature.

April 04, 2015 EDT has  a Lunar Eclipse at the degree 14 Libra. Lunar Eclipses are more emotional than physical in nature and will draw on your emotional needs.

 According to William Lilly in 1652 and the effects of Lunar Eclipses when they happen in the Decanates of every Sign, this eclipse will be in the second decanate of Libra:  In the second Decanate, a rott amongst Pettyfoggers (lawyers), informers and such like Cattle, they are whipt and stript to purpose.

Transit Jupiter goes Direct (forward) April 08, 2015 EDT. Jupiter brings good luck and opportunities our way. To use this energy in the most opportune manner it would be best to accept any opportunities that come your way around this date. In fact with Jupiter moving direct now you may have multiple opportunities to explore this year.

Transit Pluto goes Retrograde (backwards) April 16, 2015 EDT. Expect some setbacks in Government’s that need to make major reform. This will be a time of review and perhaps back peddling on their parts. Global markets may take a bit of a hit around this date.

Transit Neptune goes Retrograde (backwards) June 12, 2015 EDT. This energy is about having to revise your dreams and expectations. There is information out there that is being hidden or kept from the masses. Don’t be surprised if they don’t like it when their ideals don’t manifest and they see them slipping away.

Transit Saturn retrograde goes back into the sign of Scorpio June 14, 2015 EDT. The main difficulty when Saturn enters the sign of Scorpio is that what you knew about Governments previously is now being secretive or hidden. This means that others won’t trust those in authority as much and will doubt that they are telling the truth even when they are. This will be a time of much doubt which in return will lead to more unrest. Oil, gas and mining will become more regulated and structured. Banks and stocks will become more regulated and restricted in some manner. Make sure your investment income is secured. This is the last time that Saturn goes back into this sign for some time, so be sure you know what steps to take before entering into any agreement as you may not be able to back out later.

Transit Uranus goes Retrograde (backwards) July 26, 2015 EDT. This will be a time for review and if the facts don’t stack up correctly the younger people will go back to their previous attacks. This may be a time of more opposition and a time when their movements will be reviewed.

Transit Saturn goes Direct (forward) August 01, 2015 EDT. This will be a time that Governments and those in authority will decide if more or less is required. Any rules or regulations they had constructed during the Saturn retrograde period may now be put into place. A smoother transition should occur.

Transit Jupiter squares (conflict angle) Saturn August 03, 2015 EDT. Think of Jupiter as the planet of expansion, if there is too much of something, Jupiter is bound to be involved. Saturn on the other hand is the planet of restrictions and the father figure in a chart. With this conflict angle between the two planets there will be some difficulties that come from this. Saturn rules Governments, rules and regulations, the father figure, those in authority over you. This angle brings conflict when working with too many ideas to be able to produce a major working draft for security and how Governments and CEO’s now must function to move forward in these changing times.

Transit Jupiter enters the sign of Virgo August 11, 2015 EDT. Jupiter is in detriment in Virgo. The energy that is experienced around this date is an expansion or enhancement of the energy of Virgo. Virgo rules small details, critical and analytical thinking. So around this date the energy is highly analytical, extremely picky, and excessively shy in not wanting to rock the boat at all. There is some difficulty in relating to your father or a father figure/Government. With this energy the boisterous energy of Jupiter clashes with Virgo in the area of health where extreme risks may be taken. Any travel now will be related to business.

There is a Solar Eclipse that occurs September 12, 2015 EDT at the degree 20 Virgo. This eclipse deals with health and welfare, including our diet and exercise. Around this date there may be some emphasis on grains, GMO foods and other items that we ingest. This would be a great time to streamline your dietary intake. There may be a new discovery around this date in the area of metabolism and obesity that could help many people.

Transit Jupiter opposes (difficult angle) Neptune September 17, 2015 EDT. There needs to be a balance set between your ideals and the needs of others. Some people may become too lax thinking that nothing can touch them now which would be wrong. Always stay on guard and if those around you are too blinded to see the truth, it may be time to remove yourself from their presence. Religious fervor could occur around this date. You just can’t see it clearly at this time. Wait, wait and wait some more before moving forward.

Transit Saturn re-enters the sign of Sagittarius September 17, 2015 EDT. You may decide to take long journeys to open your mind and learn about others. This could be a difficult time for those in Governments or Authority figures who don’t loosen up but rather stick to their previous rigid approach. This is a time for us all to structure our life by incorporating our ideals into more practical daily life. It may be tempting to assume that we know it all now, and may instead become narrow minded unless you are open to new discoveries about yourself and the world around you. There may be some legal issues with those in Authority or Government.

Transit Pluto goes Direct (forward) September 24, 2015 EDT. Now will be a great time for Governments to move forward with any plans that they had previously on reform.  Interest rates may increase now as those who are greedy want their part of the pie. This in turn could cause the wobbly global economy to tip and start its slide downwards.

There is a Lunar Eclipse that occurs September 27, 2015 EDT at the degree 05 Aries. Again Lunar Eclipses are more emotional than physical in nature.

According to William Lilly in 1652 and the effects of Lunar Eclipses when they happen in the Decanates of every Sign, this eclipse will be in the first Decanate of Aries. If an Eclipse of the Moon be in the first ten degrees or Aries she portends that Fevers shall be frequent, many houses fired, woods destroyed or cut down and burned, as also a general dryness of the air, many caterpillars and destructive vermin appear.

Transit Jupiter is trine (great angle) Pluto October 11, 2015 EDT. Pluto rules money and income from other sources that you borrow, invest, inherit or from your partner as well as oil, organized crime and rebirth of ideas that transform an industry in some manner. This angle brings many people together in working with these ideas to produce a major working draft for the global economy. Those in the “know”, may be too optimistic in their views and can now see that the increase in interest rates in September didn’t work out quite the way they thought they would. Jupiter tends to over compensate forcing others to think that the problem is over, when in fact reality is not as rosy as it seems.

Transit Neptune goes Direct (forward) November 18, 2015 EST. This will be a time to move forward with all those great ideas and see your dreams realized. It will look like all that hard work was worth it. A new spirituality could start around this date.

Transit Saturn squares (conflict angle) Neptune November 25, 2015 EST. Rules and regulations may be set up by Governments for religions, water rights and flooding and the movie industry. Boundaries are being set and you may not like the direction they are going in.

Transit Uranus goes Direct (forward) December 25, 2015 EST. This is a time when there will be a major shakeup. Issues that deal with Uranus will move forward again, but may have a jump start so to speak. Watch the electrical grid now as it may experience a surge so to speak.

Well that seems to be it for the main themes in 2015. I want to wish you all a wonderful year ahead. Enjoy! Bev.

              Missing In Action – Areas lacking in the Birth Chart


Our astrological birth chart defines how we respond to life’s events.  It is a snapshot of the toolbox we are given to learn and grow. Some charts are evenly balanced while others are lacking in some manner be it in Elemental distribution like water, fire, air and earth, House location, Aspects or Qualities like Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable.

So the big question is “What does this mean for me and my chart?” The answer is, that lacking one or more of these areas creates a void and influences how a person responds to people around them and life in general.

The main thing to remember is that the whole chart it connected. Having said that; “What happens when someone lacks a certain element in their chart?” You would think that if they lack that element that they would have difficulty expressing that in their lifecycle……..but since the whole chart is connected and each element is connected to three houses in the chart, then the individual can still express that element through those particular houses no matter what sign is on the cusp of that house.

The element of Fire has ruler-ship over the first/fifth and ninth house.
The element of Earth has ruler-ship over the second/sixth and tenth house.
The element of Air has ruler-ship over the third/seventh and eleventh house.
The element of Water has ruler-ship over the fourth/eighth and twelfth house.

If someone lacks planets in one of the elements, but does have planets located in one or more of the houses associated with that element they lack, then this in turn compensates them in the chart. To actually lack an area, you would have to lack a planetary presence in both the house associated with that area, as well as that specific area be it element, quality etc.
Having said that, the lack of a particular area of the chart will affect the personality of the person in question. Someone lacking Fire in sign or house emphasis will come across as being unassertive or won’t display any enthusiasm. They just seem to not have any energy to project a forceful image even if leadership abilities are present. In this manner they tend to be overlooked in the workplace.

Those lacking earth elements will tend to have no common sense. They may lose money and valuables through mismanagement or neglect and just don’t know how to survive in a business environment.

With an absence of Air in the chart, these folks can’t grasp abstract concepts. Their thought processes are hampered and they tend to develop tunnel vision unable to see other points of view. They need to learn methods of communicating with others or will always be misunderstood.

If you see a chart with a lack of water elements, these folks have great control over their emotions and they are less influenced by any emotional factors than by ambition, security or reason. On the other hand they are unable to experience the great highs and lows of feeling that others enjoy. Logic is the personal preference with these people and you won’t influence them unless you have a sound argument.  They literally can’t place themselves in another’s shoes so to speak.

Missing Aspects in a chart indicate a lack of events associated with that aspect.  If there are no conjunctions, then there is a lack of a concentration of interest in the person. 

Having no squares in the chart bring about a lack of tension needed to motivate the person into action. How many of you get angry and then decide to do something about it……do you act the same when things are calmer. Usually the answer is no…it takes that tension and drive to change something to bring actions into being.

A person with no trines in the chart has to work for everything that they get in life. The great result is that they will know where everything came from and how to go about recovering it if it’s lost in the process somehow.

The most common missing aspect is the opposition where there is a need to find a balance between two issues.  If there are no oppositions in the chart, there is more difficulty for the person to balance issues, people and tasks.

Planets that are unaspected in the chart tend to try harder to leave their energy signature. Since it’s not working with the rest of the chart, it acts more as a free agent and isn’t influenced by other planets in the chart.

Note: This is based off an article written in 1999 by Astrologer Patricia McDonald.
