The Timing Was Everything for The Last Waltz New Orleans

TheLastWaltz.NOLA.SStar

When Warren Hayes announced he was pioneering a 40th Anniversary concert celebration of The Last Waltz New Orleans, many people asked, why is he choosing to do this at the close of April and not in November of 2016?

Aside from this epic event that put the icing on the cake for 2016’s Jazzfest in New Orleans, let’s find out why by utilizing astrology and how very much “timing is everything.”

As we look back to the evening of 25 November 1976 of The Last Waltz at The Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, astrology is able to cast a chart –just like a human being- for the event.
TheLastWaltz76
Area #5 (5th House) piece of the pie in the natal chart is the events’ creativity and abilities to be seen on the stage of life. We see quite a line up of planets here that are all positioned here. Uranus (originality/individuality), Mars (fame/celebrity/motivation), The Sun (creativity/identity/character) Neptune (intuition/music/performance/arts) & Mercury (communication/mindset/movement).

With all this natural 5th house energy placed in Scorpio and Sagittarius for the original The Last Waltz, it is no wonder the phenomenon of this final concert of The Band became the fascination that it did. Scorpio energy favors power, rebirth, and wealth while Sagittarius energizes multi-faceted talents, optimism, celebration and generosity to shine when place in a natal 5th House. The Last Waltz in 1976 was over 4 hours long and its’ cast of talent beyond The Band itself was immense. Indeed, this was simply not your average concert.

For those who are fans of The Band, this last performance had some true staying power beyond the actual night of the event 25 November 1976. Within 2 years, upon 26 April 1978, 17 November Scorpio Sun Martin Scorsese himself released his anticipated and yet still criticized documentary film, The Last Waltz, coined as “the finest of all rock movies.” With a natal Neptune as we see it placed from the night’s natal chart, it was bound to happen that a creative adventure involving film would be made. Neptune guides over the entire film industry as well as artistic pursuits of all kinds.

Astrology is a rich source that always can indicate when timing is everything. As we take the “star map” of The Last Waltz in 1976 and place the current transits in time around it, this is how we determine the forecast for any living soul. This ability is the precise reason why Haynes’s timing for April 2016 was simply the perfect one to celebrate the passing of 40 years.
TheLastWaltzNOLA
See how in the outer circle there are two planets in transit in this same 5th House area? These are Saturn (responsibility/wisdom/stability) and Mars (fame/celebrity/motivation), both in current Retrograde motion. Retrogrades in astrology indicate there is a request to honor a cycle of reflection, and go back to what already exists.

Fast forwarding to 2016, true to his own current forecast and timing, we find this musical star in great awareness as the world is completely witnessing The New Beginnings of Warren Haynes. Both cycles of the Mars and Saturn Retrograde are reconnecting with all of the original energy created upon 25 November 1976 at present, and so too, did Haynes innately listen to this calling.

Forever fans of The Band were left in suspense leading up to the evenings of 29 & 30th of April in New Orleans this year. What anyone knew under not only under Mars and Saturn Retrograde, is this would be a 40th Anniversary celebration with “Superstar Surprise Guests” at the historical Saenger Theatre.

To further affirm how late April 2016 was the perfect timing for revisiting this historic concert, a third significant planet happens to be in reflection mode, that of Mercury Retrograde. This transit also favors going back to revisit the past and recreate it. Artistic adventures of all kinds are one of the few things that energetically go extremely well whenever Mercury Retrograde is in effect.

Once again looking to The Last Waltz’s natal chart, we see this energy unfolding from the 11th House, that of its’ groups, friends, hopes, dreams and wishes. Mercury had just started retrograding 28 April, and was conjunct the events’ natal Jupiter here. Back in 1976, this is another reason why The Band was so well supported by fellow musicians in complete abundance for their final epic hurrah upon Thanksgiving Day that year.

So just who would these “Superstar Surprise Guests” be in April of 2016 as we knew reflection was so strong? One might have thought, the epic cast of original The Last Waltz musical greats that are still blessed to be alive such as Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, EmmyLou Harris and Bob Dylan could have possibly shown up. Even The Band’s surviving members Garth Hudson & Robbie Robertson may also have been part of Haynes celebration.

But you cannot expect an innovative Aries like Warren Haynes to repeat what previously happened exactly the way it already did. Those who where at the Saenger Theatre for The Last Waltz New Orleans, got more than their fair share of superstars to celebrate 40 years since The Band played their last song.

It was known pre-show that “Guitarist Warren Haynes will serve as musical director for The Last Waltz New Orleans as he’ll lead a band consisting of Don Was, keyboard master John Medeski, country superstar Jamey Johnson, The Meters’ pioneering bass player George Porter, Jr., The Radiators’ Dave Malone, legendary funk drummer Terrence Higgins (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, John Scofield’s Piety Street Band), The Bonerama Horns’ Mark Mullins (Galactic, Harry Connick, Jr.), and more still to be announced as well as superstar surprise guests.”  -25 March 2016, Jam Base

As your author was “born and raised” on Scorsese’s documentary, (due to her parents musical taste in the mid 1970’s), equally, The Doobie Brothers concerts in video were in their same repertoire collection. My favorite superstar surprise guest that brought back more of my own past was a musician who ignited pure and genuine stellar soul while recreating The Band’s music all night long: the marvelous Michael McDonald.

McDonald’s impeccable soulful voice coupled with his ingenious keyboard playing made delightful rekindling magic with The Band’s music all evening long. Definite highlights where as he switched to banjo during “Rag Momma Rag” and poured out a most touching rendition of Neil Young’s “Helpless.”


McDonald continued to rivet the Saenger stage along with the rest of the brilliant 40th Anniversary cast as they brought down the Saenger Theatre house during the encore of “Don’t Do It.”

Encore, 30 April The Last Waltz New Orleans:

Warren Haynes certainly delivered a more than gifted tribute to one of rock history’s most celebrated bands through The Last Waltz New Orleans. This was absolutely stunning and perfect timing is everything as the dates of 29-30 April were so undeniably appropriate to return to this past event and bring its’ memories back in to the present.

To many more of your new beginnings to come, Aries Star Warren Haynes. Much Gratitude to you and the all-star cast that gave us all a spectacular night to always remember under these cycles of reflection that ask us to revisit the past and cherish it’s many gifts.

The last song The Band ever played, 25 November 1976:

Maya Azucena Goes To the Nines

MAYAHappy Happy New Year & Birthday Maya!

If you have been a loyal follower and music fan of Maya Azucena, you already know she has reaped stunning rewards from her innate musical talents. What we have all witnessed during her 8 Personal Year than spanned 2015-16 has been true to it’s “timing is everything” forecast that indicates a soul is able to reap a significant harvest, stability, and ultimate recognition in the life, and especially where they create structure through their career and public life pursuits and ambitions.

What promises to unfold for her now during her new 9 Personal Year ahead?

This incredibly gifted singer songwriter, activist and philanthropist will be taking all she has planted over the past 8 years since 2008 and take her recent harvest energy to the next level. Get ready to watch her soar with the courage we know she profoundly has to the Universal Nines during this 9 Personal Year cycle 04 May 2017- 04 May 2017.

While a 9 Personal Year marks a time of shift in the life where conclusions, wrapping it up and endings are seen, the energy of “to the 9’s” is equally ever present. 9 energy is a powerful force that elevates one to further fame and celebrity when it is being channeled in positive ways. The practice a person needs to possess in their 9 Personal Year to reap them successfully is that of courage.

Looking to how a current numerology forecast connects the dots back to one’s natal astrology chart, this now current cycle for Maya engages first and foremost in her area of creativity and abilities to express herself on the stage of her life. Mars is the planet in charge of the 9 vibration.

Mars at present is in current transit in Maya’s 5th astrological house, the one that is the area of creativity, children, and brain children of all kinds. This also the area of life that guides over love affairs, of which we will see plenty of her returning back to projects that are collaborations with other artists she truly appreciates working with.

This new 9 Personal Year starts off on a reflective note until 29 June for Azucena. Where she’ll soar with all that amazing courage she possesses, will be more than amazing to witness as the later part of this year unfolds.

As the current Mars Retrograde asks for reflection, it transits back over her natal Neptune in Sagittarius. This natal planet placement of Neptune is the very reason she is innately blessed with being a very special musical muse. Mars Retrograde now requests she revisit old creative and artistic projects that have been left unfinished. What can be reworked and recreated from these efforts, will end result in some absolutely outstanding results.

Be ready for more magical music from Maya that will continue to bless us all with her natural gift of healing and light to this world.

September 2016 brings the full on force of taking this current 9 year to the universal masses, and by October 2016, there will be brilliant new beginnings that we will naturally see emerge from her continuing innovative and original works.

While a plenty of letting go is favored until she enters her 1 Personal Year in 2017 upon 04 May, she’ll be in equal preparation during the next 12 months of making the space for the new ground and breakthrough ways her career will intensely shift at that time into even more powerful new directions.

9 Personal Year Cycles ask for anyone to be the Warrior in their life as they navigate through it. And we all know, Maya genuinely understands those Warriors, one of her riveting tracks from Cry Love, very very well when they need to come out to play.

As it is always said, Stay Tuned! The Best of MAYA AZUCENA is yet to come!
Let’s #SpellOuttheTruth from how It’s All in the Name

2016: Choosing Our Courage

COURAGE.SharitaStar“The Warrior of the Light is a believer. Because he believes in miracles, miracles begin to happen. Because he is sure that his thoughts can change his life, his life begins to change. Because he is certain that he will find love, love appears.” ~Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light

Welcome in the Universal Year 2016!

A New Year. A New Cycle.
2015 leaves it’s persevering mark on many across the globe as our responsibilities to learn from our human experiences surfaced in more than karmic ways during the past 12 months.

Our human experiences now shift during 2016, into new cycle that co-exists with our spiritual beings.

No matter what the energy of the world at large is, remember your life is always your individual human experience, via your own personal forecast.

2016’s Global Forecast
It’s time to activate courage and compassion into our practices. In the 12 months of 2016, these are our preferred choices to make sure our motivations, desires, and abilities are responsive verses reactive- even when conflicts beyond our personal control arise. Our unique goals and aspirations still belong to us amongst all that will be trying to distract us that will need to be carefully filtered.

What was initiated and began with full intention since 2008, now witnesses the greatest cycle of clearing out what is no longer necessary to properly evolve as 2016 unfolds. Overall, this years’ cycle now calls for our bravery, a warrior presence, and inevitable conclusions.

Equally requested is the deeper understanding of how to not allow the worlds’ problems and fears to conquer us when we choose to focus upon conquering our personal fears. This is quintessential to comprehend during 2016, as the year will leave an aggressive mark upon humanity in seemingly conflicting ways.

Individually Aligning with 2016
You do not need to be in an actual 9 Personal Year within your own forecast to see 2016’s collective energy unfold within your human experience. By following the spiritual guidance that your personal forecast precisely provides, 2016’s Universal energy seeks to compliment your own changing cycles.

The year ahead is ever powerful to align you in a true sense of shifting from feeding fear to rising up in courageous responses wherever you are within your own personal forecast. It’s warrior time to make the most of the collective energy that we co-exist within and are individually a part of as we evolve.

Let’s Look Back to Look Ahead
Over the past 8 years, on a collective level, we are all -while still honoring our own light- part of the larger whole that witnessed the bigger picture plant seeds in 2008 (1), the source of new beginnings and initiations amongst humanity.

Since then….

2009 (2) nurtured those seeds within it’s emotional and sensitive energy. The home, family & sense of co-operation called across the board.

2010 (3) burst open those seeds, aligning in new knowledge and education. Beliefs, philosophies & growth were stimulated on a global level.

2011 (4) formulated roots that secured the initiations of 2008 within a foundation. The unexpected, breakthroughs & over coming obstacles called to all.

2012 (5) brought forth blossoming, fast movement and permanent changes. Communications, mass changes & no going back unfolded for humanity.

2013 (6) called for understanding, compassion, adjustment, and balance. Justice, judgment & harmony asked to be aligned and embraced.

2014 (7) asked for the “soul homework” the inner work, the reflection in order to heal. Solitude, listening & remaining in the eye of the storms called to be heard.

2015 (8) asked us to reap the harvest, find the recognition & accept the reward. Only practicing responsibility, patience & honor allowed this stabilizing energy to flourish.

2016 (9) is now here to motivate us to drawn upon conclusions, dramatic endings and release. Penetration, aggressive action will persist, but a warriors’ courage will be the cure.

The Planetary Channel for 2016’s Cycle: Mars
Numerology, like astrology, is directly guided by the archetypes of our planets from above. As we translate what planetary movement means for us down here below, energetic patterns are always seen to unfold. It is now time to shift into the understanding of Mars from the more steadfast, overworked, school of hard knocks and rather serious space that Saturn’s archetype indicated would be symbolized within 2015 during our 8 Universal Year.

Mars as it influences the 9 energy unfolds into situations that ask us to take action, deepened into our guts, find our bravery, and decide what drives us to arrive at conclusions  resulting in powerful changes as we move forward thereafter. It is because of the affects of Mars during 2016, that the practice of courage will become anyone’s friend.

More keys for our success are opened as we understand the astrological signs Mars will journey through during 2016 for their overall energetic affects. Equally, where Mars reflects these same transits within one’s natal birth chart grants another valuable forecast of how the energy creates individual changes.

Being Perceptive: Mars in Scorpio 03 Jan to 05 Mar; 27 May to 02 Aug
The power to relax is not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Scorpio. While desires are more than powerful and passionate, the energy from this transit is unflagging and rigidly disciplined.

Motivations become probing, dissecting, persistent and shrewd. Authoritative issues will be at an all time high, and as Retrograde in this sign (27 May to 29 June) occurs, they will not be shy in displaying superior, domineering, callous and unsociable attitudes to be witnessed within our human experiences.

Finding Enthusiasm: Mars in Sagittarius 05 Mar to 27 May; 02 Aug to 27 Sept
Endurance and stability are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Sagittarius. While desires are more than impulsive, the energy from this transit is spontaneously mobilized and fitful.

Motivations become speculative, exploratory, swift, discontinuous, and superficial. Independent leaning to defiant issues will be at an all time high, and as Retrograde in this sign (17 April to 27 May) occurs, they will not be shy in displaying frank, sporting, self-righteous and supercilious attitudes to be witnessed within our human experiences.

The Request for Reflection: Mars Retrograde 17 April to 29 June
One of the more “turbulent” times during 2016 will be when the pioneering planet in charge of our Universal Year will take time to do some sharpening of its’ own saw. Being Mars is still an inner planet -like Mercury and Venus Retrograde passages- when in retrograde, its’ request for reflection is more than intensely felt throughout our human experiences.

Humanity across the board can be sure to expect the unexpected as April arrives, and as Mars Retrograde moves through May, the calling for permanent, irreversible changes will be amazingly profound to watch unfold. What will magnify this affect is the added influence of 2016’s second Mercury Retrograde period that will pursue 28 April to 22 May within Taurus.

Most will find whatever intentions they may have to launch, initiate or begin anything brand new with long-term success in mind surrounding May 2016, will be like trying to build a house upon a sand foundation. Once again -like our Mercury Retrograde periods- knowing how to properly embrace reflection, review, reassessment and rework what already exists is where the benefits can be found to utilize the Mars Retrograde cycle to its full advantage.

Enjoying Ambition: Mars in Capricorn 27 Sept to 09 Nov
Humility, humor, warmth and consideration are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Capricorn. While desires are more than persistent, the energy from this transit is efficiently controlled and sustained.

Motivations become practical, well-rehearsed, orthodox, vigorous, and prudent. Conscientious and organizational issues will be at an all time high as responsible, self-reliant, and traditional attitudes are witnessed within our human experiences.

Allowing Originality: Mars in Aquarius 09 Nov to 19 Dec
Personal touch and feeling are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Aquarius. While desires are more than unusual, the energy from this transit is undeniably dynamic. Motivations become scientific, experimental, impersonal, abrupt and revolutionary.

Independence and theoretical understanding for humanitarian issues will be at an all time high as detached, friendly, blunt, nervy and unruly attitudes are witnessed within our human experiences.

Igniting Imagination: Mars in Pisces 19 Dec to 28 Jan 2017
Focus, direction and self-reliance are not easy to come by when Mars journeys in Pisces. While desires are more than sensual, the energy from this transit is unstable, diffused and easily exhausted.

Motivations become intuitive, involved, infiltrating, reconciliatory, devious and obscure. Receptive and charitable issues will be at an all time high as unassuming, diplomatic, self-sacrificing, dishonest and discontented attitudes are witnessed within our human experiences.

Forget the Anger, Lose the Fears & Choose Courage
Those choosing conflict in belief they are saving the day will not be well supported in 2016. Those exercising moves made in anger, fear and penetrating action will be entering into a storm they could otherwise avoid.

Looking back to action in play since 2008, this is the “cleaning house” year where aggressive action simply will no longer be tolerated. Aggressive action will attract intensities resulting in extremely painful outcomes.

Cleansing, clearing, releasing and letting go will be felt across the board in 2016. The positive or negative of whatever humanity has sown in deepest connections to 2008, it now shall conclude.

Becoming the Warrior
Choosing to stand in our warrior presence will be a wise choice to make in 2016 to be able to move throughout the year with ultimate success. However, it will be sensible to also monitor the “save the day” mentality.

No matter what the world will choose to do to resolve it’s conflicts, remembering who we personally are and standing up for what is right without the fight allows the win-win.

Focusing upon work backed by philanthropic intentions will be all the more rewarded and supported by the 9 energy by honoring the helpfulness that the 9 also symbolizes when it is treated with respect.  Adapting the age old mantra “kill ‘em with kindness” can reflect amazing personal rewards to anyone throughout 2016 when we activate our mindful choice of the response verses reaction should conflict come our way.

Shine Bright Warrior Star & Believe in the Miracle of You!

Wishing You an Amazing & Stellar 2016 Cycle of Choosing the Courageous in your individual human experience, Dear Star.

Happy New Year.  Namaste.

Standing in Your Courage: Mars Retrograde 23 Jan to 13 April

Courage. If your are a fan of the Cowardly Lion from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ there is a plenty you can reap in reward from listening to his advice over the next couple months as our planet of drive and action takes a break, and asks us all for reflection in The Virgin.

Mars has been journeying within Virgo since 10 November 2011. Perhaps, you’ve taken note of the sense of excitability emerging within this area of your Zodiac Pie. Our Pioneer planet does not hold back in the dynamic action that is moving energy here in all kinds of ways. As much as Mars loves to get things going, he equally draws forth conclusions to arrive down here below from wherever he is traveling within our celestial skies above, and sometimes, these are delivered in abrupt and rash ways.

As Mars reached 23 degrees Virgo on 19 January, his station occurred as he prepares for Retrograde motion on 23 January. Mars won’t move back to the 22nd degree of Virgo until 27 January, then his backwards journey will take him to 03 degrees Virgo. Here, he will station once more at 03 degrees Virgo on 07 April before going Direct 13 April. When any planet is within the station surrounding retrograde activity, it can bring on some intense energies down here below.

This entire passage marks a profound time to take a look at motivation and “what makes you tick” in the area of life that these degree points in Virgo rule over from both the natal birth chart and collective perspective. Mars prefers to convey his energies in “his own way” and can appear selfish from time to time. What is important to innately understand about “self” at this time is the difference between the attention to self and selfish acts. The first is a true response that is a gift to our Soul, while the latter is pure reaction that tends to create storms within our Spirit.

The natural energy of our Pioneer planet drives us to do things and at times do them rather quickly. Yet, under any Mars station and retrograde passage, it is in all of our best interests to sloooooow down, and take up with a patient pace. As we all take up further within our Winter’s retreats, certainly there couldn’t be a better time for some Mars reflection to take place. By the time it is complete 13 April, wowo, if your free will has chosen the SILENT LISTEN, what keys you will then have to unlock your Spring! As Virgo energy is at its’ best when all doubt is erased, truly it will be a time to come charging out of the gates, completely refreshed as Mars’s motivation will be ready to move forward again.

For the collective, be on the look out for endings and true conclusions to arrive in what Virgo’s purity and sense of discrimination represents for us all. As John Jocelyn speaks of this sign, “Ever does Virgo seek the reason; it wants to know why. Virgo, using the brain, requires sight and knowledge as to how one knows why. Virgo says, “Demonstrate to me how you know why!” Virgo attains to the power of discrimination, for discrimination is the one needful thing for Virgo souls. What is discrimination if not the ability to know the true from the false, the essential from the non-essential! Evolved souls in this sign get at the very core, the kernel of the exterior man, as well as to the center of things.”

This Mars Retrograde will tie up some interesting energies connected to what Saturn brought to the surface to be responsible for when he was transiting here September 2007 to October 2010. Virgo is the sign of the auditor, and those collective details that were examined and scrutinized over that time now get a true last once over. There is a discipline that will unleash itself, and whatever lessons did not fully come to pass from Father Saturn’s time here, Mars will now finalize the details of these deals.

So too, will you see these same kinds of activity from wherever Virgo seeks to be of service and brings a natural understanding to your life. Your natal birth chart that is calculated from your time of birth grants the true individual view, while the simplicity of knowing your sun sign casts the outer picture for how Mars’s reflective request also urges to speak with you. Remember, even as Mars goes Direct again upon 13 April, he will take all you have reassessed here moving forward to remain within the Virgo slice of your Zodiac Pie until 03 July, when he enters Libra.

A little quick guide is below from the collective perspective on which area of life Mars presently will request your courage to unfold as he journeys backwards for a pass. If you know your Rising Sign/Ascendant (determined from the time of birth) then look to how 23 to 03 degrees Virgo precisely sits within the natal birth chart for closer insight to how you can make the most of rising up to your core and grace.

Aries: Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets

Taurus: Creativity/Children/Love Affairs

Gemini: Home/Family/Emotions/Environments

Cancer: Thinking/Mentality/Communications

Leo: Values/Earning Power/Possessions

Virgo: Approaches/Mask to the World/Motivations

Libra: Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past

Scorpio: Innovations/Friendships/Organizations

Sagittarius: Career/Public Life/Opportunities

Capricorn: Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education

Aquarius: Transformations/Sexuality/Wealth

Pisces: Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others

Mars Retrograde will test our patience and truest sense of how we handle aggression and penetration within our lives, being he is -aside from the role of The Pioneer- the true warrior within the Zodiac. Yet, instead of reacting to any pressure that may come our way in conflict, there is another innate energy of Mars that will bring us the best results as we reflect. This, simply, is the response of COURAGE. URGE OUR CORE, CURE OUR RAGE, CURE OUR EGO, GRACE OUR AGE.

May rising up in courage bring you the brightest blessings Dear Stars as you discover and reflect upon all of your whys. Namaste.

A Quick Word on The Pioneer….

Mars enters Virgo
10 November
11:15pm EST

Are you ready for some action where The Virgin is of service within your Zodiac Pie? You will now be seeing quite a bit of activity in this area of the life. What makes this passage a bit different that any regular Mars transit which normally last about 7 weeks, is that, our motivating planet will not leave this sign until 03 July 2012.

Remember all the collective changes that unfolded from Saturn’s visit here in 2007 throughout the fall of 2010? It’s time for Mars with his penetrating energy to make things truly take up with dynamic activity that will bring more conclusions to the situations Saturn requested we pay closer attention to over this period. Knowing the economic implications and realizations that drummed up alone- if you thought this time has passed and was never to return, think again. There are a many completions and endings to what we know and are comfortable with that still await to unravel.

Why will Mars be journeying so long with The Virgin? As he reaches the 23rd degree of Virgo, upon 23 January 2012, we’ll then be witnessing another Mars Retrograde that will last until 13 April 2012 at 03 degrees Virgo. The last time we saw Mars not looking where he was going was back over the Winter of 2010.

So here we are, as we turn into the “infamous 2012” date upon the upcoming Universal New Year, with Mars asking for our further examination of those details within our lives as he takes up time within the sign that loves to audit, discriminate and fuss about everything. Being Virgo is the sign that equally loves to be well-mannered and of service, when this focus is chosen, the rewards of this passage are all the more easily found.

Mars is known as the warrior planet, and wherever he is within the Zodiac sky, we are wise to apply patience to this area of the life down here below. Mars also brings forth conclusions and finalizations, so these too, can be more than expected. So, while in Virgo, tests will be placed here to see how well one handles situations of conflict. As always, responding with courage verses reacting in aggressive action will bring calm to what is meant to change in this area of the life.

There is a collective calling to apply disciplined energy to all that Mars logically will select for us to bring more efficiency and practicality to within our methods of desire. One thing that will be strongly felt over this passage is the request for simplification and further organization of what Saturn already requested we take responsible note of here from 2007 to 2010.

So, what about you? Just where will you see this intense passage bring inevitable change to your life? A quick guide from the collective vantage point will show one affect from this longer than normal Mars transit. Remember too, if you know your Ascendant (Rising sign) this too will apply to your natal chart. However, it is always the professional analysis of your natal chart that will exactly determine how any current transit is personally requesting your attention to better know thyself.

Aries: Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets

Taurus: Creativity/Children/Love Affairs

Gemini: Home/Family/Emotions/Environments

Cancer: Thinking/Mentality/Communications

Leo: Values/Earning Power/Possessions

Virgo: Approaches/Mask to the World/Motivations

Capricorn: Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education

Aquarius: Transformations/Sexuality/Wealth

Pisces: Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others

More to come on the 23 January on how to ideally handle Mars Retrograde in Virgo 2012. In the meantime, take extra pause where Virgo politely requests you to slow down, and listen to what wishes to become more motivated here. With any activity from Mars, if we don’t take that time to be silent, we will miss tremendous opportunity to reap the proper changes within our lives, which will be urged to unfold quickly. Namaste, Dear Ones.
