October 2019

  The stars of the Celestial Gardner shine forth in the early morning skies as our sun rises now!!  Virgo, the queen of the heavens, with a seed in her hand, reigns with discerning eye as sharp as the sheaf she bears.

     The names of the stars of the sign itself include Who Shall Come Down,  to the Branch Who Comes, who is The Deliverer, the Seed of Corn (Spica), The Branch, Who Shall Come Down and Have

Dominion, Gloriously Beautiful, The Deliverer, Who Carries.

     The Ancients considered that the stellar year began with this sign, which champions motherhood, agriculture, and the feeding of the masses.


    The shades of the Gardner are gray and yellow-green. 


     The Virgo nature encompasses strength, as in the Tarot card of that name, and even more importantly, adaptability.  Virgo is a scientist, a physicist, an explorer and a healthy skeptic.  She is both a reliable leader and a valuable team player and support system!  Virgo is punctual and self reliant, dependable, and a real cramp in the gut when being antagonistic.

     The distressed Virgo in the World will struggle and flail with irreconcilable skepticism, pitting their rationality and reason against what they know in their hearts. 


     That particular shade of yellow-green (lime) energy helps release toxins from all the bodies, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Remember this when Virgo turns toxic in behavior!!  Use limes in cool ice water to counter their effects. 






Bootes, the Guardian of the Bear Callisto, or Herdsman of the Bears, rises with the sun for the next ten days, the last decanate of Virgo.  The individual names for the stars include The Coming One, The Guardian of the Greater Flock, and The Ruler.  Those people and relationships born under these stars are sensitive,generous, harmonious, perceptive, and artistically well balanced.  The wise and prudent  will consider her actions and issues through this lens.

Happy Birthday Virgo!!  

Happy October!!!

Happy Autumn!!!

We have arrived at the most beautiful time of year!!  All of Nature blossoms forth in glorious color, equal or surpassing that of spring.  It is the time of sowing tomorrows!

Our autumn days see the sun sparkling at 27 degrees of sidereal Virgo, tipping swiftly toward the balance of Libra!!

The moon roars in Aries, continueing a slow decent.  An Aries moon and Virgo sun can heighten our concern for others.

Our dreams will be odd this morning, and we awaken suddenly in a perplexed state of mind. It's just heaven house cleaning!!  Let's follow the good example and get rid of everything objectionable and nasty in ourselves!

By lunch time in Seattle, 1 44 PM, we feel better, act our age, and make a positive impact on all around us. Late afternoon, 3 45 PM in Puget Sound, we hear an inspiring word or two, and will pass it on before the day is out!  A good wish and a good will!!

Let's disregard the news we hear from the media; turns out, it is faked after all.  

Wednesday brings deep insight from our dreams, and the wise among us will keep their dream journals at hand.  It promises to be a day of reckoning.




October!!!  Autumn in all its glory is here!!!  Let's hear it for pumpkins, harvest prayers, in gathering, corn, and falling leaves that rival flowers for beauty! 



On Friday the 18th the sun balances into sidereal Libra, for a long break from lunacy!!  

Thursday the 24th sees our orb of communication sulking down into Scorpio, while the new moon in Libra on the 27th is much needed blessing!!  Venus will follow Mercury into Scorpio on the 29th, putting our romantic possibilities in the sewer too. 

On All Hallows Eve, October 31st, Mercury goes retrograde at 8 41 AM Seattle time. It will backpedal into Libra again on the 7th, come right on the 20th of November and still from it's storm on the 25th.  Mercury will reenter Scorpio on the 6th of December.  

Friday the 1st of November is All Saints Day, with All Souls day being Saturday, and Daylight Savings Ending on Sunday the 3rd of November.

On the 10th of December, mighty Jupiter will enter his own sign of sidereal Sagittarius!  The cosmic Santa Claus will bring an enormous sense of good will and some balance to our schedules, to schooling, especially higher education, to foreign affairs!   






The Astrological Rosary!

The first bead in our decade reminds us of the crown of stars in Our Ladys hair.  As Queen of the Cosmos, she orders those stars, which form a message to all of us who behold her!


This translates to the movements of Mercury in our solar system.

When we hold the first bead, we realize that we are sending and receiving information!!




Mercury, our orb of communication, ticks along in Libra, and we become skeptical and a bit disputatious.  Politics!!!











That phantom moon which science swears could not exist but which astronomers have seen on many occasions, Vulcan, roars to life in so many ways.  We stop the turbulance, and if we are the leaders we think we are, will navigate around it!!


The second bead in our decade brings home the realization that we are genuinely loved... why else would heaven contact us, or hear us, or recognize us at all?  We are important to the Mother of God!

Venus, the Morning Star, the Star of the Sea, is the orb which displays what is valued, what is beautiful, what is dear to the heart!

When we hold the second bead, we think of how we are valued!



The golden girl of the cosmos, Venus, balances into her winter home of sidereal Libra.  What a chance to improve our character, refine our ideals!

Venus has become the evening star for the rest of 2019, so romance is very much in order, as well as finance.  Venus in Libra is excellent for balanceing the love of money with the joy we can spread with it!  We know now too that we must be able to distinguish between love, and lust, in both realms.  Venus rules love and value, but lust is a whole different animal, akin to Martian greed, arrogance, domination.  


She has no retrogrades in 2019, but will turn backwards in May of 2020 till June 24th.  Let's plan ahead now!!  This retrograde will not be time to make any change in our portfolio, buy new stocks, get married, begin a new romance or friendship, or begin anything of value.  






The third bead of our decade inspires us to action!  We acknowledge the significance of our place in the cosmos, and we are moved to merge with the Will of God!


Mars whisks through virtuous Virgo, where we are tempted toward self criticism, and becoming discontent with ourselves.  The Wise thing to do during this transit is to listen to the truth of others, particularly those who love us and partner with us, that we realize our worth to them!! 


Mars will retrograde in September 2020, from the 9th till November 13th, in his own sign of Aries.  Let's plan ahead now to wear head protection at all times, to get into the habit!  We can mark on our 2020 planner to reinspect any metallic tool or weapon, and to consider a new sport or game.





The fourth bead of our decade swells our hearts with all good thoughts and benevolent wishes!  We wish to share all that flows through our minds and hearts with everyone!!

Our business sense is only clear and productive when we root out the secrets and scandals and straighten it all out.  Jupiter is unending them all in Scorpio.  The smell will reach high heaven.  As the giant is direct in the sign of skullduggery, we can expect the blast to reach just that high too!



On November 4th through the 8th, Jupiter will sit at 29 karmic degrees of Scorpio.  It is important that we break no law during this period, and if we have some atonement, something to make up for, some restitution, it is doubly valid now!



On the 9th through the 14th of November the great one enters it's own sign of Sagittarius, the law, The Law, and all things legal, teetering at 0 degrees.  We notice that the most important and wide reaching justice occurs during this window.  What a time we will have then!!  If we have travel plans, they will go splendidly!  If we have a religious retreat or a pilgrimage, even better!!!



We know that Our Lady is clothed with the sun from her description in the Book of Revelation, chapter 12.  This recognizes the new year begins at the new moon in September, when the sun is in Virgo.  The moon mentioned being at Our Ladys' feet is also in Virgo, being new.  Another school of thought teaches that the moon is full in Pisces, as this sign rules the feet.  


     The sixth bead of our decade, just past the halfway mark, is where reality sets in.  We know that sometimes the answer to a prayer is no, and we give real thanks for that!! Think of the trouble we might have caused through our thoughtlessness!


    Saturn rides through sidereal Sagittarius, pointing us in the right direction when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.  


     At his best, Saturn can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand.  


   Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching.  We have discovered this in 2019.  As our year ends, Saturn the iron fisted giant and Pluto, the destroyer from within, will conjunct... it turns one bilious to even think about it!!  

Our seventh bead in the decade brings us to the surprises which heaven grants and life bestows, those things we had not imagined, much less expected!  


Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries, the sign of All or Nothing At All.  Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!!  As autumn falls upon us, he will rocket backwards through the Spring Lamb like a jai lai ball!!  Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities will be reevaluated and straightened out at a much more sedate pace, but, expect surprises to come out of nowhere!  Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers!   This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.

Our eighth bead is the heart of the Rosary!  It is the heart of Our Lady herself!  She is likened to Neptune, the dreamy, the universal sea, the cosmic ocean of eternal life, the womb of the deep, the Eternal Return!


Our faculties of Inspiration are under the bluegreen mists of Neptune, the orb of idealismand music, as it buoys through Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation.  This  inspires delightful forms and colors for a future that is more out of this world than of it.   

Currently retrograde till November 24th, we find our minds crystal clear, our reasoning ability a bit cold.  A perfect window for studying without passion or prejudice, the most confusing and complicated of issues.  

Our ninth bead is the shield and armor of Our Lady!  She is the one gate against which hell will not prevail!



Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius.  Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there.  Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker.  Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality.  As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!



Our tenth bead is signifies the moon which sits at her feet! 

That missing space, where we say the Glory Be, represents the missing planet, from which spring the four planettes forming a coterie about the earth on her journey around the sun.  Called near-earth asteroids, these planettes are the size and shape of Pluto, all remnants of the much larger planet which was destroyed in a terrible war before Time began.  This planet was between Jupiter and earth, and once hosted Mars as a moon.





The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, flip flops in Pisces.  

Our spousal planette Juno has a lot to say in Gemini, none of it bad!


can be fixed if we want to take the time to go back and work on our inner emotional issues.  With the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde in Pisces now, real success is possible when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy. 

Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, reigns in Virgo, the celestial Gardner.  

The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, bakes up some real surprises in Scorpio!!

This makes the 8th complete lunation this year, 2019!

This diversity of roses is the proof and the sign which you will take, and will tell in My name, that they will see in them My wish and that they will have to comply to it. 

     Come to me then not with heads bent in sorrow or hands clasped against receiving;  for I have so much to show you, and so much to give!  Hold my emblem, the rosary, the eternal garland of roses, sweet to heaven, out in front of you!  Let my emblem of roses be ever in your aura!





      Never leave your house without making the sign of the cross.  It will be to you a staff, a weapon, an impregnable fortress.  Neither man nor demon will dare attack you, seeing you covered by such powerful armor.  Let this sign teach you yourself that you are a soldier ready to combat against the demons, and ready to fight for the crown of justice.  Are you  ignorant of what the Cross has done?  It has vanquished death, destroyed sin, emptied Hell, destroyed Satan and resurrected the universe;  will you then doubt it's power?       John of the Golden Mouth
