U.S. Solar Return, what lies ahead 2021-2022

HAPPY 245th Birthday America.

The 2021-2022 U.S. Solar Return chart for America is on July 4, its not always on the same calendar day. This is the natal and solar return chart.

U. S. Sibley Natal Chart and solar return July 4 2021

The SOLAR RETURN chart for America or for any entity a person or event is when the Sun returns to its place of birth.

This chart is a predictive chart for the year ahead from July 4 2021 until 2022.

The US, AC is 29 AQUARIUS a Critical degree

The Air Sign of revolution, technical innovation, freedom, equality, scientific information, the breaking up of old systems and structures and cryptocurrency is the most important point in traditional Astrology. America will focus on its own revolution coming to an end over the next year in more ways than one.

The 29th degree besides being anaretic meaning destructive or killing is Leo in Degree Theory ruled by the SUN in Cancer conjunct Sirius. Very royal, solar powered can be Big Leaders LEO/ 1% versus Aquarius ideal humanity. There will be drama.

The ruler of the AC is Saturn traditionally now strong in Aquarius at 12+ degrees in the U.S. 2nd Natal house of resources, earnings, tools and close to the U.S. South Node at 6 degrees Aquarius. Uranus in Taurus is modern Aquarius ruler in the Natal 5th House of creativity will power, children self expression, leadership, and Love.

Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in LEO in the 8th Scorpio like house of finances, taxes, big power, death, control and secrets, at 13 degrees are involved in a  powerful T-Square on July 4. This aspect while separating over 2021-2022 leaves a lasting impact on the year ahead. The power struggles of old 1% “royalty” Leo ego, entitled financial organizations {2nd and 8th House} are in a life and death battle over control of values, money, people, resources, taxes, sex, power, keeping its secrets hidden and food with Uranus in Taurus. The 8th house is the house of manipulation, ruthless big power struggles and immense wealth using technology to accomplish this.

This is all in place besides the fact that the U.S. in in process and will have its 1st Pluto Return in 2022 starting February 20 2022 for three exact hits.

PUTO rules death and rebirth and super wealth the PLUTOCRATS, also toxic waste, the underworld, shadows, secrets, power control sex, manipulation. Did Plutocrats found America or did pilgrims escaping persecution seeking freedom? Freedom is an Aquarian value.

America is having its GREAT RESET. Not in the way the government is pretending and i see it positively as a very big revolutionary energy as the people hopefully awaken and decide to take their power back from the 1% and tear down the old system of government. This has nothing to do with parties. Power to the people as it was originally on July 4 and now 245 years later.

Transiting JUPITER is sitting on the AC in the 1st house at 1 degree PISCES indicating, hidden things, secrets, delusion, drugs, big pharma, money laundering, mental health, addictions, endings, delusions, projections, dreams, Hollywood, self-undoing, and denial. Jupiter governs Pisces and can be very spiritual and compassionate but also big martyrs and sacrificial lambs.

The MC or highest power and reputation in the world is 12 degrees SAGITTARIUS

This is the Sibley U.S. charts Ascendant.  The U.S. will put its Sagittarius outlook of immigrants, foreign affairs, truth, justice, higher education, politics, laws, freedom, and higher education reputation on the line.

The MOON in TAURUS

Is the Mood of the people, home, family, children, emotional safety, mothers, is at 15 degrees TAURUS another powerful mid-degree in the 5th House which is naturally Leo like. Charisma, power, heart, protective, leadership, drama, children will all be big mood board topics.

THE MOON is ruled by VENUS in LEO at 9 degrees in its 8th Natal House

Venus is conjunct to MARS indicating an emphasis on money, values, power, sovereignty, the royals, drama, unions, love, leaders, an integration of the masculine and feminine. Play, creativity, self-expression, courage, strength, and passion. Could be tooth and claw.

The MOON conjunct URANUS is another obvious revolutionary changing mood reflecting chaos the unexpected, food issues financial upheaval, possible chaos in the markets, fluctuating values, and real estate, which Taurus and the Moon both rule. People on the move, changing homes, revolutionary dramatic changes, explosions, freedom and tearing down of old structures. The Moon symbolizes the home family and feelings Uranus can be cold unfeeling and reason over passion.

The Moon is also conjunct CERES the Great Mother who protects her children like the Greek Goddess Diana who is the moon personified at 21 Taurus. The Moon is being  T-squared by SATURN and MARS. The intense stresses between the Overlords Mars in Leo and the People {Aquarius} must be led by our feelings, Mothering to protect and connect with our families, and to feed our loved ones and all the children.

To be continued..

I’ll write more later today. It looks pretty fascinating.

July 1 Red alert day and Prince Harry warning

Hi sorry I am late and haven’t been posting. I tool a few days off for a much needed break and to get a nature bath. Since Neptune turned Retrograde June 25 I am definitely feeling the call to slow down to turn inwards, to reflect and be still. Are you feeling it to?

The big aspect.

June 28-30 PISCES MOON

The Mood is very psychic, overly sensitive, wanting to turn within, time to meditate to create, to do yoga, meditate, be charitable, dream and be compassionate and know that we are all one. This is a magic carpet ride of fantasy and illusion being in love with love. Leading up to June 1 enjoy the softness but don’t be deluded that some big hard energy is coming.

You will be feeling moody and its the best time to practice Lucid dreaming and projecting yourself as a fly on the wall in remote viewing.

June 30- July 3 Moon enters ARIES making things even hotter than they already are.

July 1 is Canada’s birthday but there will be massive protests against it due to Canada’s horrendous murdering of Indigenous children women and basically still keeping indigenous people enslaved. There will be protests and police clashes likely.

MARS OPPOSES SATURN at 12 degrees LEO/AQUARIUS T-square URANUS in TAURUS

This is a mAjor red alert day. Angry, prideful, upstaging egos battles, innovative radical changes in a nutshell. The T-square from chaos loving Uranus in Aquarius opposition is a major hard aspect.

At 12 degrees LEO/AQUARIUS. 2 malefic planets face-off.

There will be very angry proud people upstaging, protesting and rebelling against old entrenched historical laws.

Mars brings anger and war-note the strikes in Iran leading up to this aspect. Mars in Leo brings heat waves that’s already happened. Mars in Leo brings heart attacks and with Uranus unexpected chaos. Mars in Leo brings ego entitlement. Mars in Leo is road rage, shootings, hierarchies. Mars in Leo opposing Saturn in Aquarius is Big egos battle innovative radical changes in a nutshell. This can be cryptocurrency or anything which challenges the old order. There will be fights and law enforcements.

Saturn brings restrictions on new technologies, Saturn brings limits to cryptocurrencies. Saturn restricts LGBTQ and women’s rights issues. Saturn restricts gatherings Saturn limits freedom.

Try to avoid getting triggered, reacting with pride or ego entitlement. The old defending the family honor is one aspect of this.

No handling Fires BBQ’s, anything dangerous, power tools, or anything adventurous. No volcano climbing, bungee jumping, speedster racing or dare devil stuff.

Planets at 12 degrees LEO/Aquarius feel the most. 7-17 degrees also feel pain, restriction, loss, heartache. 7-17 degrees TAURUS/ SCORPIO are also in the cross-hairs.

This aspect will be in orb until the 13th or so when Venus and MARS meet.

Prince Harry will be in the U.K. for his mother’s 60th birthday statue unveiling on July 1.

Mars in Leo is pride and literally Royalty. The Saturn opposition is cold hearted and shuns anyone who breaks away from Ye Olde Tradition. Harry will be feeling the hate and the love.

The Mars/Saturn opposition plus Uranus in Taurus squaring them is actually making a very difficult exact aspect in Prince Harry’s natal chart.

Mars at 12 degrees LEO is in Harry’s Natal 7th House of marriage and relationships The Royal Leo are angry at Harry because of his wife, Meghan being different, his marriage and how he interacts with the world. Saturn symbolizing the father, and representing history, tradition and duty in Harry’s 1st house of self-identity indicated restrictions placed on his way of expressing himself.

Mars and Saturn, the two most malefic planets are making an exact T-square to Harry’s natal Saturn symbolizing his father, Prince Charles, the Firm and karma. Harry’s Saturn is at 12 degrees SCORPIO in his 9th house of travel, foreigners, secrets, espionage, power and control, death and rebirth, adventure and airplanes. Harry’s father Prince Charles plays a huge part in Harry’s life dominating his education and his fame and worldly reputation for better and for worse. This is a very disturbing and chaotic life-changing exact T-square.

I have heard that Harry is planning to fly back to California immediately after the statue of Diana is dedicated, because he has already been away from Meghan and Archie and little Lili since June 26. If Harry does fly back on July 1st it is extremely dangerous for him to do so. Saturn when it opposed Pluto created 9/11. Harry should not fly on that day, there is danger of airplane crashes, fire in the engine, unexpected chaos and death.

Plus The transiting South Node is sitting on Uranus the planet of chaos in Harry’s 11th Aquarian house and opposing his Chiron in Gemini in his 5th House of children and creative self-expression and squaring his Part of Fortune in Virgo in the 8th house of death.

Planet Neptune in Pisces opposing his Virgo Sun

This transit had been approaching since 2020 and continues into 2022. Prince Harry is in love with love and in a magic fog of illusions and delusions. Neptune in Pisces rules Hollywood and this explains him taking up with La La Land. Mental illness is one of the topics Pisces governs. A Neptune transit is all about being charitable and he is doing charity work. Forgiveness, compassion and understanding are what a Neptune transit brings out. It makes one retreat from the world.

The Mars Saturn opposition makes a T–square to Princess Diana’s Neptune in Scorpio the sign of death rebirth and intense emotions. Neptune is projection. The Princess has held the attention of the world for almost 25 years since her death in 1997.

In Princess Diana’s Natal chart Mars conjunct Pluto & Uranus in her 8th house opposite her Aquarius Moon. Diana is literally the Moon, dying, 8 House in a car crash, Mars=danger speed, in an underground place, Pluto, in a chaotic way, accident Uranus. Her natal chart shows her death clearly which occurred Aug 31, 1997. Prince Diana had her Saturn planet of Karma, meaning an older man, at 27 degrees Capricorn, where Pluto is right now! This can be a danger to her legacy, her sons.

I am sending prayers for Harry’s protection.

and then,

Mars trine Chiron on July 2

This brings up open hearted healing and talking about our wounds or our war victories.

Fairies, Midsummer Night dreams 2021

Midsummer Night Fairy Magick Sun Celebration

June 20 is the Peak of the SUN’s LIGHT, the MASCULINE FIRE in the Northern Hemisphere. The longest night of the year in the North, its a time of celebration. As the sun peaks everything shifts gradually into the DARK FEMININE ENERGY begins to grow stronger until December 21st when it peaks then the powers are switched again. This is the balance of everything that exists in the Universe. We need these complimentary opposites.

The SUN is sitting on the TROPIC OF CANCER and in Tropical astrology we say the Sun has entered the sign of Cancer.

This is the PAGAN Cardinal Cross Quarter day of LITHA. 

As Summer begins in the North here in 2021 we are not quite getting out of months of lockdown due to Covid-19. Time to celebrate, Life is green, the living colours of flowers are everywhere and abundant. The air smells sweet, bees are buzzing. We are growing our own food in our gardens or containers. We are soaking up the rays.  The Goddess is symbolically Pregnant with the child she conceived at Spring equinox.

The Summer Solstice or LITHA begins 8:32 pm PDT/11:32 pm EDT/ JUNE 21 At 3:32 am GMT  as the SUN enters CANCER the 0-degree “world point.” It is the beginning of Winter Down Under.

Shakespeare Immortalized Midsummer in his play A Midsummer Night’s Dream Sir_Joseph_Noel_Paton_-_The_Quarrel_of_Oberon_and_Titania_

Sir Joseph Noel Paton- The Quarrel of Oberon and Titania_

Traditional symbols for Midsummer

Weave flower wreaths to wear on the summer solstice,

Speaking of Midsummer nights dreams

JUPITER the planet of expansion is in its home rulership in PISCES the Sign of dreams, visions, the last sign, the house of magic and imagination as Jupiter turns RETROGRADE at 8:06 am PDT/ 11:06 am EDT/3:06 pm GMT.

We have been floating in a DREAMLAND of Pisces fairyland waters since May 13/14. This is very significant for this SOLSTICE season.

Jupiter turns Retrograde June 20 on Solstice at 2 Pisces and turns direct October 17/18 at 22 Aquarius. Jupiter was there before March 26/27. We will have to resift through all the new Aquarian ideas until then and relaunch when Jupiter hits 2 Pisces on January 8, 2022

The Bonfire

Bonfires are lit on hilltops, by holy wells, and at a sacred place, to honour the fullness of the Sun. People danced around and leap through the flames. Traditionally people stayed up all night on Midsummer’s Eve to welcome the sunrise. Coals from the Midsummer fire were scattered on fields to ensure a good harvest, you can scatter them in your garden

Midsummer is one of the most powerful nights for MAGICK,

Especially healing prayers, love magick, energy, protection and purification. It’s a time of gratitude for family and friends. Reflect on the progress of the seeds that you planted in the earth. A great time to get rid of patterns and objects that no longer serve your Higher Self. 

The Fairy Queen and the fairies are said to be out riding on MidSummer Night 

This is the time to strengthen your connection with the Fae or Fairie and otherworldly beings,

Honour the Fairies 

Create a fairie house in your yard or even in your window. Remember that fairies are very mischievous so be careful. Place spirit boundaries around your house, and protect yourself from their pranks while outside. Wear garlands of marigolds, ivy and or St. John’s Wort. White lily petals, rue and oatmeal in your pockets or in baskets help in protection. Bury a Witch Bottle, a glass container filled with sharp objects such as pins, nails and needles, ashes and salt before entrances to your home for protection.

Leave treats for the Fairies. They love sweets of all kinds. Leave offerings outside in the woods a park or your yard or windowsill.  Leave herbs, ribbons, seashells and bowls of milk outside to gift the Faeries.

Bless the animals.

Ancient herders brought a token animal to be blessed to protect their herds. Ask for protection and blessings for pets, livestock and wildlife.Have a Feast 

Some great summer dishes include seafood, watermelon, berries, lemonade, summer squash, and baked potatoes. 

Renew and clean Your Altar

Litha is a great time to clean, cleanse and re-decorate your altar for the Summer season. Take everything off of your altar, clean it, then cleanse it with dried Cedar, Sage, honeysuckle or other sweet incense or sweetgrass smoke. Add summer yellows to and golds to your altar.

Honour Sun Gods & Goddesses

Honor any solar deities with offerings and prayers Some of the sun gods and goddesses are Ra, Horus, Huitzilopochtli Aztec Sun and War God, Irish Goddess Aine, Celtic Sun God Belenos, Greek Sun God Helios, Roman Apollo, Etain Irish Sun Goddess, Yuyi, Taoist God of the Sun, Macha, Irish Goddess of women, Sunna, Norse Goddess of the Sun and many more. 

Flowers, honey honouring nature and growth

The Midsummer Moon is also known as the HONEYMOON, where this term originated. Mead is made, handfasting ceremonies are performed. Mead is considered to be a magical life-enhancing drink, You can make an altar to honour the Oak tree, with their leaves. Sunflowers are also a great example.  Magical baking and charms are created on this special day. Traditionally this festival spans three days. This year it is June 20-23rd.

Buttermilk Bread 

To bring abundance to your kitchen. Sunflower seeds represent the light half of the year and the poppy seeds represent the dark half of the year.

You will need:

3 cups of white flour, preferably bread flout type.

500 ml of Buttermilk 

I tsp.of bicarbonate of soda

Sunflower and poppy seeds for sprinking

Red ribbon and a sprig of rosemary

Place the flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Sieve in the blended salt and soda and pour in the buttermilk. Mix well with a wooden spoon until the dough feels springy. If it feels too sloppy just add a little more flour. Turn it onto a board and cover with a fine dusting of flour. Pat it with your hands until you have a round shape. Take a sharp knife and score lightly into eight sections, one for each festival. Sprinkle half of the loaf with poppy seeds and the other half with sunflower seeds.

Place onto a greased baking tray and pop your buttermilk bread into a moderate oven for about 20-25 minutes. Keep and eye on it. When the bread is ready it will change colour and it will sound hollow when you tap the bottom. Cool completely on a wire rack. When it is cool, place your sprig of rosemary on top and tie the red ribbon across the middle.

Consecrate the bread by turning the loaf three times saying “From the fields and through the stones, into fire, Midsummer Bread, as the Wheel turns may all be fed. Goddess Bless.”

Take your bread and share it with your family, friends or whoever you would like to bless. Eat it fresh, as soon as it is made if you can. 

Elderflower Champagne

Elderflowers peak at Midsummer. Pick them in the fullness of a sunny day, ideally on Midsummer’s Day. The Elder is sacred to the Mother Goddess and is often called the Witch’s Tree, the Elder Mother, or Queen of the Trees. It is protective, with wonderful healing properties. It aids transformation, change and renewal, this drink will aid in transforming your life. Or drink Elderberry Liqueur.

In Canada, Strongbow makes an elderflower cider. 

Ingredients:

8 litres water

1.25 kg sugar

8 large elderflower heads

4 lemons

4 tablespoons mild white wine vinegar

Do use screw-top bottles. Large plastic bottles are good. This is a fizzy drink, if not bottled tightly it can explode! Keep it somewhere safe. Make sure the elderflowers are clean and pick them when the sun is strongest. 

Boil the water and dissolve the sugar into it, organic sugar is best.

When the water cools, add the elderflowers, the juice of two of the lemons and slices of the other two, plus the vinegar.

Cover with a clean cloth and leave for a day.

Strain through a fine sieve or piece of muslin, carefully squeezing the flowers to extract as much flavour as possible.

Store in clean screw-top bottles.

Leave alone for 10 days or so. Drink within a month. Enjoy and give thanks to the Spirit of the Elder.

Honey Cake

A celebration of a sweet life. 

If you can source locally produced honey its the best. Wherever it comes from always thank the precious Bees. 

Ingredients:

225 gram Butter 1 cup
250 gms Honey or 1 cup 
100 gms Dark Muscovado Sugar, 3.5 ounces by weight 
3 Eggs, beaten
300 gms Self-Raising Flour, 1 1/2 cups 

Cut the butter into pieces and heat slowly, adding the honey and the sugar. When fully melted, turn up the heat and boil the mixture for one minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the beaten eggs to the cooled honey mixture. Sift the flour into a large bowl and beat the liquid honey mixture into it until you have a smooth batter. Pour the mixture into a round lined sponge tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160 C for about 50 mins – or until the cake is well-risen and springs back to the touch. Cool on a rack and glaze with a few tablespoons of warm honey. A nice sweet treat.

Horoscopes for all Signs under this conservative versus radical square. We can see the pulls and the face offs going on between these two powerful planets.

Saturn represent the limits of physical reality and was the last of the classical seven planets visible by the naked eye. Then Uranus was the first planet to be discovered through a telescope by astronomer William Herschel on March 13, 1781. That discovery changed the world view. Uranus became known as the planet related to technology because of the way it was discovered and a planet of higher consciousness taking us beyond the former boundaries described by Saturn.

Mars in Leo, action, fire, passion, war

Mars in Leo June 11 until July 29/30

MARS, the War God, the testosterone-driven red planet enters the FIxed Fire and 5th sign, of pride, leadership, fun loving, drama QUEENS, passionate LEO the Lion, and its Time to roar.

Temperatures will rise literally too, while Mars is in Leo so expect very hot early summer in the Northern Hemisphere and lost of fired.

Mars has been waterlogged and swimming to keep his head above water in Cancer since April 23 which seems like aeons ago. Have you learned to love your soft underbelly while Mars was in Cancer?  How has your tummy been? Mars does not do well in ultra nurturing Cancer, but he is the wounded warrior who came home to take off his armour and allow himself to be nurtured and to nurture just like Prince Harry was doing in his Mental Health special The Me You Don’t See with Oprah at the same time. Mars in Cancer is passive/aggressive. But that’s all over now.

The Macho planet of testosterone, war, passion and desire action and defensiveness is bringing sexy Leonine energy back. It’s courageous, loves to party and dance, wear red be the center of attention, daring, and bold. There will be lots of  drama, HOT passion, battles of wills, energy to burn, big-hearted, and LUSTY. 

Mars likes living dangerously. DO be extra carefull around BBQ’s campfires, and and dangerous flammable liquids. Not to mention guns or any sharp weapons, knives.

DANGER of explosions, volcanic ones, forest fires, bombings, knife attacks, angry crowds and general rage.

There is a danger of wars and battles being ignited during this time in the world. Venus enters LEO too June 27 to bring some peaceful balancing hopefully. The battles will be for love or war or both, some couples like fighting then making love.

LEO is #8 or #11 in the Tarot is STRENGTH/ LUST

In the Tarot the card #8 or #11 is STRENGTH and clearly LEO. The woman is always holding the jaws of the lion open controlling his animal instincts. In the Thoth tarot the card of Strength is called LUST and BABYLON the scarlet woman is riding the lion, she is one with and controls her passions and desires. A different take. Lust for power will be on full display. This is dangerous in the world right now. 

When Mars travels through a sign it ignites it. While Mars is in Leo It’s your time Leo’s with Mars in Leo everyone adores you even more than usual. YAY! Be the King and Queen.

All Leo Planets in your natal chart will demand the Royal Treatment.

LEO’s it’s your time to keep shining.  Everyone loves charismatic Leo’s.

ARIES and SCORPIO get to be center stage too with your ruling planet Mars in LEO.

NOTE VENUS follows mars into Leo June 26/27 and meets up with MARS in a SACRED MARRIAGE CEREMONY on JUNE 13 at 19+ LEO.

I am creating a ZOOM workshop  for July 11 at 7:30 pm MARK that date on your calendars and Stay tuned for that.

Drama Queens and Kings take your places on the stage. Sexy Queens and Kings.  Mars roaring through the “I WILL” heats up broils, bakes, BBQ’s your passions. 

Got to love those Regal Leo’s with their big manes, perfect white teeth, movie star good looks.  The Royal folks, to the manner born, have charisma to burn. Your self-esteem will be stronger, you need to embody that lion-like strut. The world is your stage.

Run and find where LEO is in your chart. That’s where you will be a Prima Donna or Primidone for the next few weeks.

The 5th sign and the natural 5th house is also where your inner child plays, so let that little kid out. Lighten up and Role PLAY. The 5th house is also the house of love affairs. Sex is an art form for Mars in Leo peeps, and they will treat you like a King or Queen and insist on being treated that way too.

Leo rules the Heart.

Wear your heart on your sleeve. Be generous. Be creative, this is the self- expressive sign. Make art. Buy art.

The 2nd Fixed Sign Leo’s downside is pride, vanity, power games, big players.

Who has MARS IN LEO? some ridiculously hot celebrities?

CERES conjunct URANUS in TAURUS at 12 degrees 


Ceres, dwarf planet, Great Mother, Demeter to the Greeks, Mother Earth personified, conjoins Planet Uranus at 12 degrees Taurus. Uranus is the planet of hi-tech, AI, robots, Microchips, GMO, cryptocurrency, cloned meat, radical changes, chaos, inventions. This is literally Necessity is the Mother of Invention. This is a herbalist versus modern medicine Green Witch, kitchen witch revolution.

I was initiated a green witch by Susun Weed at her Wise Woman Center in Woodstock, NY in 2987. This can be a high tech green energy revolutionary marriage union.

this is A good omen and augurs Revolutionary green Bitcoin, earth renewal, and freedom for mothers, and caregivers of children, and back to nature organic food. Ceres rules the harvest. Taurus is beef, its Time to change your diet to plant based and to feed cows naturally to avoid mad cow disease.

The flipside is of course danger of buying into the Monsanto, Cloned meat, AI robotic, microchipped, transhumanist world. There are some people who want this and want to believe they can be immortal and upload their consciousness to a computer. GREAT MOTHER CERES not growing any more food. Cancel culture on Mother Nature.

Another way of looking at this is what the beef with bitcoin? I’m taking the high road with this one. Beware hi-tech raping the earth and your body too.
