I was at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival show September 13, 1969, all day and it was amazing. I remember Jim Morrison not being in great shape. He sang the Unknown Soldier and they debuted a video. Chuck Berry and Alice Cooper were good. I do remember John doing some great songs. Everyone was so hyped to see John play. Everyone hated Yoko Ono’s screaming. Yes the thousands of little lighters, the original. I am so happy I got to be there at so many amazing Rock and Roll events. I was backstage.
Yes, it’s 50 years since the summer of love, sex drugs and rock and roll ruled. The Aquarian gathering from August 15, 16, 17th at Max Yasgur’s farm made history. With almost half a million people gathered near Woodstock, New York for a weekend of peace, love, probably the best gathering of rock and roll musicians ever and a show of loving anti-establishment solidarity was the largest peaceful gathering in history.James M Shelley [CC BY-SA 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)%5D
My old high school girlfriend Linda Goldman was at Woodstock and she has been interviewed and featured in many Canadian news and TV interviews all week. She is a sentimentalist and kept all of her memorabilia and diaries. See links below
How much have the ideals of the 60’s peace and love and a dawning of a new age of Aquarius changed the world? As Crosby Stills and Nash sang “We can change the world.”
the 1st thing that stands out to me in the Woodstock 1969 concert is that it is in a rare All Planets Moving Direct phase. There are no Retrograde planets.
The Summer of ’69 was the Summer of LOVE
Scott Mackenzie’s San Francisco and Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams, Come Together by the Beatles.
It was an LEO event of course. The biggest, grandest, most dramatic, heartfelt childlike freely creative self-expressive energy.
The MOON always symbolizing the collective mood of the people and their dreams, the Unconscious, traveled from Virgo into Libra. The Moon crossed the South Node in Virgo @ 21 degrees, indicating a releasing from the servitude, tight, humble, perfectionist, hard-working energy of the past. EVerybody just want to be free. Pluto was also very close by. PLUTO on the Ascendant indicates the powerful meaning of Woodstock in the archetypal realms for an entire Generation.
MERCURY at 13 Virgo in its ruling sign and squares Mars in Sagittarius
Mercury in Virgo is organized but in a square to Sagittarius-disorganized, gypsy-like and freewheeling. Mercury in Virgo creates memories. Virgo is the sign of the harvest, what was planted at Woodstock is a symbol of what can be sown and competed.The energy was idealistic but Sagittariusly naive. The Baby Boomers were anti-establishment and were opening up to Eastern Traditional Transcendental Meditation of the Maharishi and the Beatles led Indian music, yoga, and other idealistic philosophies, Gurdjieff, and Timothy Leary’s Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out LSD philosophy and Ken Kesey’s Magic Bus, The Farm and communes were all the rage. Ram Das hadn’t even written Be Here Now.
VENUS is on the Brightest star in the sky SIRIUS in CANCER
This star conjuncts the U. S. Sun. The values born at Woodstock are eternal ones. Sirius is connected to the myth of Isis and Osiris and resurrection. With Love we can resurrect all things.
LILITH conjunct VENUS
indicates the women’s liberation energy that was in the air as this was Bra burning and the pill brought the beginning of sexual freedom for women.
MARS in SAGITTARIUS
The sign of politics, action, aggression, truth, justice, religion, higher philosophy and international cultures shows up all over Woodstock. This is the anti-Vietnam War era. The performers were International too, The Who were British, Jimi Hendrix an American had moved to Britain and Carlos Santana brought Latin music into the Festival. The Impact of Woodstock transcended everything.
SATURN at 8 degrees Taurus indicates the slow, natural, back to nature ideas.
JUPITER conjunct URANUS in LIBRA
Show the radical, revolutionary, larger than life peace and love LIBRA energy. Venus rules Libra, the sign of the peacemaker and of the creativity and creative arts. These young people broke all the traditional rules and blew all the straight people’s minds. They demonstrated how half a million strangers could gather to enjoy music peacefully over 4 days. It wasn’t always perfect, but it worked.
CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER at 6 degrees ARIES opposite Jupiter and Uranus in LINRA
There was a critical wound at this time. The Bay Boomer Hippies were trying to start a new way of life. URANUS and PLUTO had created the 60’s at 17-18 degrees VIRGO opposite Saturn in Pisces at that time. This alignment was great healing which shook the old traditional culture.
NEPTUNE in Scorpio trines the North Node in PISCES
Neptune rules Pisces and in Scorpio, the sign of sex, power, and the psyche brings that primal energy into the Pisces North Node of Peace, compassion, kindness, creativity, drugs, escapism and spirituality. It is beautiful. Idealism, drugs, and unconditional ideals ruled.
now 2019 50 years later. What do we see?
CHIRON is returning to the Woodstock position in ARIES. It is a time of old emotional baggage coming up to be felt fully and mourned and learned from and released to renew. We need to see the world through a new lens again. Last month, original Woodstock producer Michael Lang’s plans for a 50th-anniversary festival fell through when the organizers failed to secure a venue and headliners including Jay-Z and Miley Cyrus dropped out. There’s that wounding.
PLUTO in CAPRICORN trines Woodstock 69
There is a deep soulful yearning to return and rebirth those times of peace, love, co-operation, and understanding, a simpler life where people got together physically to enjoy the same experience without guns and distrust. United in their love of music and peace and not opposed.
SATURN is opposite VENUS and LILITH
WOW how things have gone backwards. Saturn the traditional Patriarchy has reigned in woman’s sexual freedoms in the U.S. Values have changed to more conservative and patriarchal ruled. Although some women are more liberated there are still old patriarchal control mechanisms in place. The revolution never went very deep.
The NORTH NODE is conjunct to ’69 LILITH in CANCER
The North Node symbolizes the highest spiritual growth. LILITH in CANCER is women totally walking away from the patriarchal defined views of women as empty vessels, used to be pregnant and in the home. WOMEN must walk away from anything and everything that will restrict her. Women need to nurture, feed and love their own shadow power inside. Lilith is women’s freedom to create their own relationships, how they see it.
Transitions NEPTUNE is opposite the MOON of ’69
Neptune rules the dreams, creativity spirituality and unconscious. The Moon symbolizes the mood of the people. People collectively would dissolve all the illusions to return back to the Garden as in Joni Mitchells Woodstock song.
We are stardust, we are golden, million years old carbon, caught in the devil’s bargain and we’ve got to get ourselves back tp the Garden.
URANUS in TAURUS will conjunct the 69 Saturn position
Uranus in Taurus conjuncts that spot will reignite a lot of getting back to the land communal living and set my soul free energy. Pot was illegal in 1969. It has recently been legalized in some states. Many will reject the AI, hi-tech world, and want hands-on, slow, real values again. The AQUARIAN Age is ruled by URANUS. The ideals of that time were seeded by Pluto and Uranus they still need to sprout and grow.
What do you think? Were 400,000 people just stoned and idealistic?

June 23 Venus is a busy lady while in Gemini, hopping from one God’s bed to the other, first Jupiter today and fending off Saturn and then seducing Neptune with her golden girdle on the 24th
June 23 Venus in Gemini opposes Jupiter in Sagittarius,
Venus quincunx Saturn in Capricorn
June 24 Venus squares Neptune in Pisces VENUS in GEMINI opposite Jupiter in SAGITTARIUS in the a.m.
This can go two ways obviously.
It can be very exciting for Gemini’s having long-distance love with exotic Foreigner’s, adventurer’s, sporty types and optimistic mystics and traveler honest gypsies.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder? Gotta love those Sagittarians too.
Pursue the dual citizenships, double training, education streams, going in two directions at once, partnerships of all kinds, learning new languages, mysticism, justice, try seeing the other side of a political viewpoint, debating, staying young forever, enquiring about more metaphysical and philosophical things. Being honest while you cheat.
This can spark cheating on your #1.
Pisces Moon is alluring, squares Jupiter we’re called to be off in some idealistic mutable adventure time.
VENUS inconjuncts Saturn in Capricorn
Ouch someone sets up boundaries. Venus in Gemini wants to run.
Pisces moon flows in a sextile to stable Saturn
This is nice, brings reality to your dreaminess.
Pisces Moon squares Venus in Gemini
Two lovers are better than one, How could anyone argue with that?
Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces
This is the best night to set intentions for your Lucid Dreaming.
I had a dream about a group of Indigenous people who were showing me and my husband and daughter, a very ancient thing. There was a truly ancient Crone Woman who didn’t speak but her presence was like time itself, and her face weathered like a mountain top. The male handed me a pole which was supposed to be thrown like a javelin. I tried to throw it a few times. We were told all kinds of ancient knowledge.
The pole had me thinking of the Pole Star and the North and South Nodes of the Moon which create eclipses. The pole star is the axis.
The dreamy energy continues and amps up on June 23
as Venus Squares Neptune in Pisces
This is romantic, idealistic and has two components. The downside is because its Gemini energy and Pisces it’s a love of illusions, delusions, addictions, denial, fake news, a split in your psyche, afraid to make commitments,
The high side of this energy would be to bring the apparent split in your mind to a unified whole. The way Pisces understands everything to be.

JUPITER in SAGITTARIUS SQUARE NEPTUNE in PISCES June 17 @ 18+ degrees
This is one of the Big Signatures of 2019 and very fortuitous
Jupiter whose been up close this past week brings Big PERKS
and the Big guy rules both Sagittarius and Pisces
Jupiter is the planet of Humor. the Joker, and Neptune the planet of magic and delusion, confusion, the Thief. Mercury the magician, the wind, and the thief is trining Neptune today
We are dealing with optimism idealism faith, trust, adventures, truth, justice, drugs, self-sabotage, denial and the unconscious.
This can be a great expansive optimistic energy. But also one of great exaggerated Jupiterian confusion, FAKE NEWS, false flags, addictions, delusions, illusions, debt, glamour and oil. ALl of these things are going on BIg Time this year. I don’t think we will really be able to get a sense of reality until Jupiter enters grounded Capricorn December of 2019 and when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn in the summer of 2020.
Remember also that many of the planets are at 18 degrees.
The universe is telling us to pay attention to.
#18 Numerology. #18 inTarot=The Moon 4 planets at 18th degree & the Nodes= synchronicity If you have planets @ 18+ degrees you’re getting zapped. Jupiter 18+ Sagittarius, Neptune 18+ Pisces Mercury 18+ Cancer North Node 18+ Cancer Saturn 18+ Capricorn S.Node 18+ Capricorn # 18 in Hebrew means Life.
I find it fascinating that Bob Dylan’s lyrics so beautifully exemplify this energy.
Bob Dylan BTW, has Jupiter at 29 Taurus conjunct ALGOL/ Medusa trine his natal Neptune at 24 Virgo and his North Node at 29 Virgo, he is a perfectionist.

Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl
Feb 28 Last day of February and of Venus in Capricorn
Venus enters the last degree of CAPRICORN later today squaring Athena the Asteroid Goddess of war, strategy and women’s logic at the 29th degree of LIBRA and squaring Uranus at the 29th degree of ARIES.
War and love and change in the skies above.
This is a critical CARDINAL crisis of relationships,anger, independence, justice, women speaking out, and endings. Look at the news for relevant issues relating to this.
A little video of the aspects today below
Moon squares Chiron in Aries
The wound may make you want to punch someone in the face like the government and the Plutocracy.
Moon is in Capricorn and makes a nice sensuous trine to Mars in Taurus
