A Blue Moon Super Moon Eclipse on Wednesday The Moon Hugs Ceres – a Female Super Blue Moon

If you love the Moon, mark your calendar for January 31 when (if you are in North America or Hawaii) you will see a blue Moon lunar eclipse just before sunrise. Blue Moons occur when we have two full moons in one calendar month. There will be another in March. The lunar eclipse will be total meaning that the Moon will be completely in the shadow of the Earth for a bit more than an hour. This is not, as you might have heard on social media, the first Blue Moon total eclipse in 150, just that it is the

Mars in Sagittarius – No Time for Excuses

Are you slowing down on your New Year’s resolutions? Well, be prepared to fire up again as warrior Mars moves in a fellow fire sign, Sagittarius. This is a very restless, adventurous and physical placement because we are combining the wanderlust of Sagittarius with the drive and energy of Mars. Winter might be the time of hibernating and binge watching or reading but think of this transit as your own personal January thaw. Mars makes the move on January 26 so you have some time to plan your project and make your attack plans. The old file cabinet or pile

No better time to tackle your 2018 resolutions.

If you are one who makes New Year’s resolutions now is a time to kick them into high gear. We have a stellium (a large number of planets all in one sign) in Capricorn, the task master. Saturn recently entered Capricorn (as I mentioned in a previous blog), Pluto has been there since 2008, the Sun is in Capricorn until January 21 and for a few days Mercury will be joining them there. This is a good time to make a plan on how you want to face the rest of the year (the Sun.) Make a plan, catch up

Uranus Finally Goes Direct – Too Bad So Does Trump.

Happy New Year! In addition to the beautiful New Year’s Day full Moon, the universe gave us the present of Uranus moving out of retrograde where it has been since August, 2017. It didn’t surprise me that our so-called president used that movement to make a stereotypical move. Uranus is in Aries, the god of war. I describe this as like a teenager running with a loaded gun this situation. Uranus is unpredictable trickster energy that loves to shoot thunderbolts just to shake things up. Trump’s ridiculous mine-is-bigger-than-yours tweet to North Korea is a perfect example of this Uranus-Aries, unhinged

What payment will Pluto Demand of the US

I have written extensively on the transit of Pluto through America’s second house – that of our values and fiscal priorities – and the coming Pluto return. Pluto will “return” to where it was when we were created in 1776.  In the process he brings up hidden secrets and the dirty little lies we tell our selves. As a point of illustration, I tell my clients that if someone has Pluto going through his sixth house, that of health, and has been sitting on the coach for years eating pork rinds and soda then he can expect that heart attack

Full Gemini Moon – With Mercury in Retrograde. What Needs to Be Said?

Did you see the supermoon or “Full Cold Moon” last night? Supermoons is a full moon occurring when the Moon is at apogee, or is closest to the Earth. This is not something that happens often and it makes the moon appear about 14 percent larger and a lot brighter than a normal full Moon. This can also be a double Gemini Moon. For the next few days the Moon is in Gemini. Mercury, ruler of Gemini, went into retrograde on November 14 and will remain until December 22. Gemini has domain over all forms of communications – especially the

Neptune Goes Direct and Saturn Moves into Capricorn

Neptune finally turned direct in its ruling constellation, Pisces, on November 22. On December 19, Saturn will move into Capricorn, the place it too is most compatible. For most of 2017, when Saturn was in Sagittarius, these two planets were square to one another. In their debilitated state, Neptune caused confusion and misrepresentation from news and authority figures (Saturn and Sagittarius.) This is finally over! Now it is time for truth to come out and to lift the veil of confusion. This will be a slow and somewhat painful process. The piper exacts a strong fee especially when he dances

The Astrology of the First Thanksgiving

The first Thanksgiving was held over a period of several days starting on October 16, 1621. The conjunction of Neptune, the Sun and Mercury in the socialized sign of Libra and in the diplomatic ninth house were good signs that a compassionate meeting of the minds was possible. In addition, the Moon Venus conjunction in Scorpio in the ten house of government brought deep emotional connections among the participants. A cold winter was coming and this was a time of true gratitude for the abundance that would hopefully see them through. The one rather ominous setting would be the retrograded

Somewhere Pluto is Smiling

I sent that text to some close friends last Wednesday, the day after the elections here in Virginia. Why is Pluto feeling so good? The answer is simple. We are finally doing what he wants. I have written at length (http://joanporte.com/tag/pluto-in-capricorn/) about the effects of Pluto, the change planet in the constellation of Capricorn, which controls government and authority structures.  To make matters more interesting, America is coming into our Pluto return. Pluto is coming back or returning to where it was in 1776, at our birth. Pluto is in our second house of values. The question couldn’t be clearer
