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

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

Keep Your Eyes on Uranus

Even though it is in retrograde Uranus is right now as close to Earth as it can be. We know from mythology that Uranus has trickster energy – completely unpredictable and somewhat destructive. Because Uranus rules electricity, lightening and many astrologers are pointing to his hand in the devastating wild fires in California. I prefer to work on the more personal level, however. Where Uranus is transiting in your chart right now is an area is one that can use a jolt. It is always best to come out ahead of Uranus – you want to make the change that

If You Want to Work on Yourself Now is the Time

This week is the time to do some “fall cleaning” – on yourself.  Right now huge Jupiter which has just moved into Scorpio, the sign of deep and sometimes difficult transformation, is conjunct the Sun and Mercury. What have you been wanting to say – what words and thoughts are bottled up and causing you angst? This is the time to unplug the cork and let your true words fly. While this is happening, Venus and Mars are also dancing together – doing their traditional male/female salsa – trying to seek balance. Not to be outdone, the highly emotional Moon

In This Season of Balance – Understand Your Venus/Mars Energy

Last week – Mars and Venus made a rare conjunction in the sign of Virgo. Virgo transmits the energy of the sacred divine in the most practical of forms. Virgo, the Earth goddess, has a direct line to the divine but she can only utilize it here on Earth. Mars epitomizes masculine energy and Venus is the sacred feminine. This conjunction address the need to balance the opposites in your life – sacred/mundane, masculine/feminine. This comes at a time of earthly balance between summer and winter – life and death. Find 19 degrees Virgo in your birth chart to learn how

Jupiter Enters Scorpio on October 10 – What Secrets Will She Reveal?

There is nothing better than Scorpio loves than a good secret – or should I say, how to ferret out a good secret?  With the power of mighty Jupiter, Scorpio is primed to reveal those hidden unknowns that we all do our best to keep from the world. Don’t be surprised if people seem a bit too nosy. There will be attacks on your privacy and interpersonal relationships will become more intense. This is a great time to define clearly your personal boundaries. Be careful too that you are not being too intrusive of others.   Scorpio is the sign

Mercury is Squaring Saturn – A Time to Think….Then Speak

  Mercury is making a disharmonious aspect, a square, to Saturn. The positive aspect is that it brings Saturn’s love of form, structure, commitment, discipline, gravity, and focus to our communicative abilities (Mercury’s purview.) This is the time for negotiations, choosing words carefully and negotiating with care. Saturn loves to bring things in perspective and put an end on them. It acts like a knife gutting the detritus and makes us come to the point. Work on editing, cleaning out the file cabinet, answering all of those pending emails, or finishing that annoying report. This is a time for tact

Have You thought about Uranus Lately?

Even if you haven’t, he has gone retrograded recently and will remain so until early January 2018. Uranus is the guide to our revolutionary thinking – where we want to break the bonds – change things up and look at life through new eyes.   It helps to think of a planet in retrograde as a napping planet. It is a time for it rest and reevaluate its energy. The house that Uranus was at birth AND the house it is currently transiting through will tell you where for the next several months you can check your inner revolutionary. This
