Super New Moon cycle, today’s Mercury square Saturn: Farah, Ed, KING OF POP, CARDIC ARREST!!! Intense stars continue!
The super new moon has already energized the upcoming lunar eclipse on July 7. This eclipse is obscured – perhaps we can say veiled, just as our sequenced gloved one was too. Who would have guessed such a tragic ending for the king of pop – he had had enough hardship in recent years. My heart goes to his family and his children – as bizarre as he was, he was also a genius.

Cardiac Arrest, June 25, 2009, approximately 12:10pm Los Angeles
Transiting Mercury in Gemini in MJ’s 12th house and about to cross the Ascendant, in square Saturn in Virgo (a mistake) in his 4th house (house of endings)
(the cause? Likely a mix of prescriptions combined with ongoing over the top stress & depression – his health had already been reported to be compromised.)
This Mercury square Saturn (Ceres too) was particularly lethal as it squared his 10th house natal Moon in Capricorn (relates to the great/building pressure re the upcoming concert tour)
Transiting Mercury was square his natal Ceres in Virgo;
Transiting Ceres conjunct Saturn was conjunct his natal Ceres.
(Ceres: a battle with the dark forces, can be a death signature.)
Saturn is the planet of endings; Sat in Virgo – the already weak system gave out.
The transit position of Saturn forms an exact square to his Ascendant/Descendent angles.
Cardiac arrest is seen by the transit of the moon which has just surpassed natal Uranus in Leo (cardiac arrest) and was in an exact opposition to Chiron in Aquarius
(Chiron is often a death indicator.)
Chiron: the maverick, wounded one, the ostracized one, the lonely one, special one;
Chiron in Aquarius – a shock to the public; an accidental overdose.
The triple alignment of Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron transiting his natal 10th, formed an opposition to his natal Pallas and Mercury retrograde. (Chiron is exact on these two planets)
The transiting moon (timing device) had also surpassed an exact square to Mars in Taurus (separation impulse, accident, sudden death) and was exactly squaring Venus in Taurus (survival planet in crisis – squared by Ceres/Saturn – both indicative of death and endings.)
The transiting north node and the progressed moon at 1 Aquarius have recently formed a conjunction. It was reported that he was having health issues, and this can be verified by the pressurized transit of Saturn in square to his Ascendant/Descendant over this past month particularly. There are many other indicators.
All this under the super new moon high tide energizer cycle, which has just begun (June 22, 2009). The super new moon is a catalyst for the upcoming lunar eclipse on July 7. (Eclipses can energize prior to or after the actual event.) This lunar eclipse falls in MJ’s 8th house of death (the eclipse Sun is in the 2nd house). Note the eclipse Uranus position, which is in his 10th house, opposing Juno and activating his 11th house cusp (theme of liberation, leaving the body.)
Mars and Venus (both in Taurus, the survival sign) are highly activated and will continue to be over this next week. The intensity is from now through to the Lunar Eclipse. For some, the transits can bring wonderful advances and breakthroughs, for others, sudden loss, sudden switching of gears/redirection or the shock of a significant severing or ending. The next three new moons are super moons. July begins another eclipse season. I will have more to say when I post July’s forecasts, sometime near July 1.
Blessings to all,
Please note: I am available for private consultations throughout the summer.

Mercury in Taurus completes retrograde as of May 30 and will continue to regain previously lost ground through June 13. Just past the revealing full moon in Sagittarius, June 7, Mercury ignites (squares) the rare triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron, and Neptune, carving a more definitive pathway forward. A reminder: this triple conjunction is in effect for the duration of the year and has two apex points, the first of which occurred in the last week of May, just as rebel despot Kim Jong il resumed nuclear testing. (He will continue to be dangerous and menacing for sometime to come. Pakistan’s chart has been pummeled by Mercury, Uranus and the triple alignment; we can expect both these crisis situations to continue to be inflamed. I hope the super new moon June 22 will be helpful to Pakistan.) The next peak of this triple alignment will occur at the end of the year. The exceptional and accelerated transitions that we now experience are reflective of this triple conjunction influence.
Venus harmonizing with Pluto, June 8, at the time of the full moon can bring a productive moving forward. This aspect also suggests that whatever is revealed or opens up will continue to be the feed line for quite some time to come. Put your all into your get-ahead plan. The meter is ticking away at an accelerated speed and there is no time to waste on halfway safeguards or half-hearted attempts or commitments.
Mars has just entered Taurus (May 31 – July 11) and Venus soon joins her partner in this earth sign (June 6 – July 5.) Both these planets put added attention on manifesting, consistency, continuity, sexual and survival needs. While we will continue to put on the good fight to sustain, to retain, and to hoard, the stars will continue to challenge each one of us to reach past personal, relationship, or material inertia. Venus, planet of net worth, self worth, has already begun a new 8 year manifesting cycle. It is time to redesign our evaluations on what it takes to rise above our suffocating lives and to figure out how to save the planet while we are at it too. Starting June 21, Venus and Mars conjoin to begin a new relationship chapter. In trine to Saturn, this new chapter can fall into place quite readily and quite solidly. It is a time of maturation and of ripening of circumstance. Energized by the super new moon (an astrological high tide) on June 22, note that we are about to enter into a greatly magnetized “draw” cycle. The next eclipse season is about beginning; July 7 brings a lunar full moon eclipse; July 21 is a total solar eclipse and another super new moon. Contributing even more energy to an already intensified forward thrust, the summer eclipses will continue to keep our evolution moving at an accelerated pace.
ARIES (MARCH 20 – APRIL 19)
Creative projects, financial, and relationship matters are about to advance to more solid ground. June 1, 2 can be smooth-rolling get-ahead dates. June 4 -6 can see you surpass an obstacle and/or gain important answers/results. Watch for breakthrough of significance; for big news, an event, or an exciting opportunity around the time of the full moon June 7. Once things start to roll, you should seem them fall into place quite naturally and fast. Publishing, broadcasting, public performance/exhibition, legal matters, travel, transportation, educational pursuits, and new romance are favored. For some, the events of the full moon could lead the way to a greatly altered lifestyle. June 16 – 24 are also synchronistic; watch for opportunities and potentials to come to fruition. Venus and Mars begin a new relationship, work, and financial cycle on June 21. A new romance can have that old shoe fit; it may immediately advance into serious commitment talks. The super new moon on June 22 can bring a professional contract, a real estate transaction, a family or financial matter to culmination or fruition. End of the month brings a great time to travel, to socialize, to explore, and to share more of yourself with those who bring joy into your life.
TAURUS (APRIL 19 – MAY 20)
It is high time for a fresh start. Noting that the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron is in such dynamic position, amazing opportunity is sure to present itself. Mars provides you with plenty of added stamina and gutsy-ness. Venus draws more praise, attention, and favor to you, June 6 – July 5. With so much planetary concentration in Taurus, you should feel a powerful energy surge. Whether it comes from within or whether circumstances catapult you into a much faster get-go, there will be no lack of incentive to get your motor moving! You’ll naturally find yourself to be more physically active and on the go; exercise is what happens when you are busy making other plans. The full of potential Full moon June 7 can take you past an impasse or an unknown; you could uncover more, or find more thrown at you than you may be prepared for. This full moon could see you through a make it or break it time for a relationship or a financial deal. No matter which way it goes, it seems you will gain an advantage from the Full moon’s turn of events. In fact, June 8 – 10 (June 1, 2 too) are lucrative, fall-into-place dates. Seize the moment and make it happen for yourself. Watch what builds in the first three weeks of the month; they are the set up for the super new moon launch pad on June 22. With Venus and Mars facilitated by Saturn, know that whatever comes into being will stick with you and sustain you for a long time to come. June 30 is a great time to sign a contract/synch the deal, apply for the position, to make a substantial commitment, to plan/implement your next steps, or to say what needs to be said.
GEMINI (May 20 – June 20/21)
Your freedom is likely to be top of your wish list, especially with an upcoming finish line looming large. While Mars and Venus tour Taurus, you may choose to minimize your social life in order to buckle down to studies or to address other personal priorities. The days preceding the “moment of truth/push comes to shove” full moon June 7 can see pressure, frustration, contradiction, and confusion build. June 8 – 10, the steps you take are likely to be substantial and of long lasting consequence. No matter what it looks like in the moment, greater security and improvement is your net gain. This full moon could bring a time of major financial undertakings, or of major relationship or family developments. Creative, romantic, and financial potentials are particularly ripe from June 21 through the end of the month (and beyond.) Progressively, you will see what it is that you need from yourself and what it is that you need from others too. The super new moon June 22 is set to show you the imbalances, shortfalls, or pitfalls of your present circumstances. It is time to confront financial over-runs, self-sabotaging ways, or find a better solution re relationship power struggles. For some, this super new moon can simply indicate a much-needed shift as the school finally ends and summer fun beckons.
CANCER (June 21/22 – July 22)
Whether you are in active pursuit, or whether circumstances now force your hand, it is high time to create a significantly reinvented wheel. For some, a career and single life beckons, for others, your beckoning new life includes partnering up. Uranus in Pisces suggests synchronicity’s flow is your best power play. In fact, huge opportunities and potentials exist for you now. For some, the present course can be a dramatic departure from your expectations or previously cherished dreams, but Uranus in Pisces suggests abundance can be yours if you will entertain new possibilities. The revealing full moon June 7 affects work, scholastic, or health matters. News or results could lead to a rapid chain of events. An exit, departure, or come clean conversation could be a surprise, but truthfully, you probably had a prior inkling about it. June 7, 8 brings the right time to look for a new job or place to hang your hat, to quit a vice, to begin a new health program, to take a break, to increase your advertising or repertoire, or to work on that which has been pending for too long. Your risk-taking can prove to be a wise investment, especially June 8 – 10. Venus and Mars are set to begin their new cycle in harmony to Saturn, which suggests that which is in your life now is going to be useful and stay put for the long term. Circumstances can see a leveling off/arrive at a successful plateau. Substantial benefit and support can come through key friendships, sibling relationships, and group involvement/participation. The super new moon on June 22 begins your solar month at an astrological high tide. The coming weeks should see you boosted with a renewed vitality and a new can do attitude. The month appears to end on a satisfying note. Real estate, finances, relationship and family matters are likely to fall into place quite beautifully. Know that next month’s eclipses can be catalysts for change, yet again. Aim to get as much solidified and nailed down as you can now.
LEO (JULY 22 – AUG 22)
A more realistic sense of what you can and cannot manage will naturally unfold. As you become more results driven, you will find that you will have more to show for yourself; the two feed off one another quite productively. With Mercury retrograde now out of the way, you should be able to solidify that which was previously up in the air. Consistency can be better harnessed; boundaries can be better placed and maintained. Venus and Mars in Taurus can make you more materially ambitious, while Saturn’s influence prompts you to be less wasteful and more rainy day responsible. More practicality re time management/who gets a piece of you will do you great justice too. You are likely to be very aware of how essential it is to make maximum use out of every moment and every resource you have. The full moon June 7 can bring a release, a threshold crossing of great significance, and a time to invest or commit for your long-term benefit. An important financial matter/lucrative contract can come to fruition; a long wait may be over; you could move in an altogether new direction, or perhaps it’s one of your kids that is undertaking a big step forward. The super new moon suggests there is plenty brewing in the background. A cherished dream could come closer to fruition. This can be a launch-pad time for a new business venture, or a trial run time for new love. The purchase of a new home, official status (congrats to graduates and newly weds, or new parents) or added professional recognition could be icing on your cake. Of course, the super new moon could simply signal the end of the school semester and the start of summer vacation. On another note, it is important to address all health concerns, so if you have not had a recent check-up, it’s time to make an appointment.
VIRGO (Aug 22 – Sept 21)
While there has been one thing after another to contend with, past the Sagittarius full moon June 7, you should begin to feel relief and grow more distanced from compounding pressure, recent deadlines, or the recent Mercury retrograde antics. Pertaining to work, health, real estate, or family matters, note that the full moon could bring the sudden and/or unexpected. In fact, you could instigate something yourself. While the full moon could bring good news for real estate sales/sellers, celebration time for graduates or vacationers, or lovers, extra safety precautions are also advised, especially re paperwork, information sources, knock-offs, transportation, or dealings with authorities. If you have played your cards right, just past the full moon you are likely to see a significant pay-off. The advance of both Mars and Venus into Taurus can lift your mood and your hopefulness too. As more positive energy and attention comes your way, it will encourage you to go further and to try more on for size. Venus and Mars will help you to spot more viable opportunities, re money-making, your social life, romance, or vacation planning. June 14/15 could be diffused, confused, or lost liter dates. June 18 – 24, things can come together quite beautifully. You’ll find these dates to be a good time to solidify/commit to a relationship, contract, or financial matter. The super new moon, June 22, marks the beginning a bright new chapter. Potentials can prove richer than they have been in a long time.
LIBRA (SEPT 22 – OCT 22/23)
Over this first week or so, you’ll see a more well defined course of action manifest, confirmation appear, or the next building block set in place. Mars and Venus in Taurus will help to solidify financial, family, or relationship matters. The turn-the-tides full moon June 7 can ignite excitement, inspiration, and encourage you to take it further. Watch for important news, a special event or arrival of note, a substantial new connection, a stroke of luck, or a great opportunity (perhaps it’s a second chance.) The triple conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron is especially fortuitous and liberating for those born Oct 17 – 20. Cherished dreams can come true, especially re success in romance, creative endeavors, children, professional/financial matters. The following dates can flow particularly well for you: June 1, 2, 11 – 13, 17, 18, 29, 30. (If you don’t instigate something, then you’ll just experience a particularly relaxed go of things.) The super new moon June 21 begins a redirection cycle of significance. It can be a good time to buy or sell real estate, to advance a professional matter/project, to sign a contract, solidify financial matters, to put the past to rest once and for all, or to take charge of your life in some other definitive way.
SCORPIO (OCT 22/23 – NOV 21)
You can springboard from your relationships this month, so by all means, make contact, stay visible, and keep up appearances. If you have a good product to offer, the word is likely to spread quite naturally. Stay resourceful; optimize and enhance where-ever, whenever, as best you can. If it comes easily, yes, it is worth playing the extra. The full moon June 7 can see you take a big step forward or make a major investment (financial or personal.) It is also a time to resolve outstanding loose ends, to complete a pending project or launch a new one, to take off somewhere, or to say a goodbye. The triple conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron is set to revive your life where it counts the most. Your private life/home life is certain to be active and full now. Your physical environment can be a hub of activity too; is there construction going on nearby? Family visits or evolving dynamics re family, group, or community involvement keep you busier than usual too. For some, it is time to welcome new members to the family. Adoption can be a source of great joy. It’s a time when you can breathe new life into a past success, so by all means, go back and do it again. Mars (May 31 – July 11) and Venus (June 6 – July 5) in Taurus enhance loyalty, trust, and good connections among friends and clients. Business and pleasure mix well. Venus and Mars add nicely to your social life and your love life too. Look for a dynamic new relationship chapter to begin as of the super new moon, June 21. Your popularity and public profile can grow more substantial. It’s a great time for travel, vacationing, performance, publishing, promotion, and new love.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21- DEC 21)
A long wait can be over; June 5 to 8 can bring an important milestone, see you through an important transaction or contract finalization, or see you land a lucrative job. The unblocking or unleashing full moon June 7 brings an important surpassing or release of significance. Things can fall into place quite solidly; Venus and Pluto can put you at a secure financial plateau while Mars and Pluto find you more productive and your efforts more fruitful too. Both Venus and Mars bode well for work/the job search, scholastic endeavors, and health related activities over this next month. That which was previously held-up can move along quite well after the first week of the month. Business and pleasure combine well. The super new moon puts the spotlight on your relationships; something may come to light that you did not previously recognize or appreciate. By the same token you could be seen in a new light too. It is a special time for both new love and enduring love. This super new moon also bodes very well for gaining more public attention or personal recognition. June 21, 22 can launch the beginning of a profitable cycle for retailers and restaurateurs; especially so if your business caters to the seasonal markets.
CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 19)
The full moon June 7 could alert you to a previously unnoticed advantage, a better plan, or an easier way out. It can also draw attention to a compounding health, financial, or work issue. You should be able to get a good handle on things thanks to benefic Venus in favor to Pluto, June 8. That which commands your attention paves the way to benefit and gain; give it room to grow. Now that Mars and Venus tenant Taurus (Mercury remains in this sign until June 13) solid ground and better accord is more possible. June 18 – 24 brings successful results. Official declarations, steps taken, commitments made, or contracts signed during this time are laden with wonderful long-range potential. The new cycle of Venus and Mars aligned with Saturn suggests the unfolding of a definitive new direction with a strong element of fate and/or karmic fruition. It is also a time of karmic fruition for the collective as the consequences of past actions now dictate economic next steps. The compelling super new moon launches an especially potent and transformative cycle for those born Dec 21 – 25. Stand in your power, rise to the challenge, and move faster to implement the change that now begs for action. Someone or something could have a profound, perhaps even life-altering effect on you. Your personal reinvention has been ongoing at an intensified level for some time now – watch for the super new moon to take it up a notch.
AQUARIUS (JAN 19 – FEB 18)
A lucrative month lies ahead. Real estate buyers and sellers should gain satisfaction; there are many good dates to seal a deal. While there may be some preliminary anxiety, pressure, or qualifying to contend with, watch for the full moon June 7 to get things off the ground and moving in a very workable way. Once over the initial hump, the rest can be easy to handle/should move along very well. Even with the present overloads, Mars and Venus teamed in Taurus and in harmony to Saturn put life onto a smoother track. Most family matters or budget issues can be resolved by taking a systematic and patient approach. Same goes for health challenges too. When it comes to relationship turbulence, know the difference between what is workable and what has already hit the fixed ceiling. If it is flawed to begin with, you could be stuck with it, so ask yourself if it is worth hanging around for more of the unacceptable same. The revealing super new moon can help you to see advantage and opportunity you may not have seen previously. Help or relief comes when you least expect it. If practicality prompts you to settle for less in terms of a job, look for a silver lining -with the right attitude in place, something worthy can come out of it. A health check is a good idea too.
PISCES (FEB 18 – MAR 20)
Now that Mercury is out of retrograde and both Mars and Venus are traveling through Taurus, you should be able to make better connections, re personal insight, planning next steps, and reaching out to others. Efforts directed towards sales, studies, and creative undertakings should prove worthwhile; results can be rewarding. The full moon June 7 can see you past a major hurdle or deadline. There can be important news, (an announcement or official word), legal papers to sign, an offer/invitation of significance, an ultimatum, or vacancy to fill. Circumstances advanced by the full moon can have a strong sense of fated-ness. Watch for something (or someone) to stand out above the rest and for the direction forward to become much more obvious, well defined, and seemingly, set in stone. Venus and Pluto in favorable alignment (trine) at the time of the full moon suggest you can make good use of the moment. Know that no matter what it looks like, you are on the way to greater long-range security/benefit. A chapter completes, the next one begins; watch for June 14, 15 to be surpassing or transition dates too. The super new moon June 22 brings it all together for you. This is the start of a romantic, social, pleasure, and reward cycle. You should feel in good position, in good stead, and done right by all – your kids included. Loyal friends, clients and customers show up when you need them the most, lovers do too. The month appears to end on a relaxed, all’s well in your world, note.
