Transits for August 11, 2016

Transiting Jupiter Sextile Natal Sun at 0°33 arcminutes

Success can come easier during this time period, and you tend to believe in yourself more than usual. Whether your self-esteem is naturally high or low, you encounter more opportunities that can open doors for you. Taking advantage of those opportunities can bring you advancement in certain areas. You often experience greater confidence to assume risk, and taking chances may offer a higher probability of working in your favor, especially activities that fulfill you rather than merely satisfying a craving for material gain.
Although physical well-being is an important and desirable outcome of this cycle, you can achieve a broader self-knowledge if you so choose, which likely is more valuable. With a propensity now to use your mind and with success more available to you, this is an excellent time to benefit from learning of any kind but particularly for seeking to understand yourself better. Self-improvement may find little resistance, as you progress more rapidly in your development or in the development of an undertaking that is an expression of who you are.

Broadening horizons is an essential feature of this period. While activity often increases now, this is not only a time for action but for understanding, so that you can make better decisions in the future. If you have a wealth of experience, then you likely have a clear grasp of the possibilities before you, permitting you to move forward with confidence. However, this cycle can serve to increase your knowledge by exploring unknown areas of existence to you. This may happen through travel, study, or wider contacts generally, which enrich your life in ways that can give you a more comprehensive view of how things fit together.

Generally, this is a busy period with many choices placed before you. However, you may prefer to use this time to recharge if you have dissipated your resources recently. In this way you restore what is lost; confidence, self-esteem, vitality, creativity. Since you can find the answers more readily, seek to discern the reasons behind whatever you lack, so that you can improve and put yourself in future positions that enhance rather than deplete you.

This cycle brings many opportunities for experiences that assist in the realization of what is best for you. It can also offer a deeper appreciation of what it means to give. Being generous not only financially but also with all your talents can make such a difference not only in the lives of others but especially your own. Beneficence during this time period likely will reward you beyond the measure of your own giving.

Improvements in certain areas of your life can happen easily now as you tend to encounter little resistance in your efforts to grow. While there is a danger of exceeding your limits, luck generally is on your side so that things typically work out in your favor. Much depends on your attitude, and during this cycle you usually have a more positive outlook than usual, which enhances the probability of fortunate outcomes. There are times in life to retreat and times to hold your ground. This period, however, can allow you to move forward and to expand your horizons.
Interesting encounters often occur, and this can be one of the best times for adventure. Even if you prefer the safety of your known environment, the urge to travel can be irresistible. You often have a thirst for learning, and you benefit from knowledge in any form. While you can accumulate a large quantity of experiences, seek to understand their meaning so as to broaden your belief in what is best for you as well as for others. You have the capacity to make your life more than what it has been and to provide support and optimism for those around you.

This often is an interval of new beginnings where you can leave the past behind for something better. Whatever you initiate now can last for many years, making it an excellent time to take advantage of any opportunities that may arise or that you create through your own efforts. It is possible that you are more restless now and you may seek greater freedom. Although doors may open for you, try to have some purpose to your movements, or you may find yourself dispersed in many directions. Being scattered is not necessarily a negative, especially if you have been wound tightly. This is a period, however, where you can weave the different threads of your existence together and witness real progress in your development and self-understanding.

This marks the start of a 12 year cycle that can produce very positive effects for you, but so much depends on your priorities and where you apply your energy. Generally, you show enthusiasm and optimism for all that you do now and this helps to ensure the prospects of any undertaking. You can sow the seeds for success wherever needed, but it is unlikely to happen by itself. You must have the belief that what you begin now can bring you lasting satisfaction. In fact, one of the potential gifts of this period is recognizing how thought can influence reality. Attempt to trust the beneficence of life now, so that you can access that ability later when you may need it.

2016 Solar Return Aspects of Less Than One Degree

Mars Trine Sun

Effective in applying your will, you do best when in charge-putting yourself first comes easily now. Whatever effort you make usually leads to a successful outcome. Energy increases as does confidence, so you can get things done that before seemed unattainable. If lacking self-esteem lately, this is a time to strengthen it through action and initiative. Seek what you love; you just may find it.

Natal Sun Trine Mars

The trine enables you to turn theory into practical application, and this reconciling quality could become a source of your life direction, as your ability to apply your energy positively can generate ways to resolve problem situations. This may be one approach that utilities your energy in a creative and beneficial manner, and which poses challenges that you intend to overcome. You will be self-confident and believe in your own abilities, setting goals and pursuing ambitions, emerging from your unique aims directed towards creating a suitable lifestyle, which may not always correspond to traditional paths and signs of success. You do not appreciate a volatile living or working environment, preferring a more tranquil atmosphere where you are free to follow your interests. While you enjoy new challenges, the cut and thrust of competition seems less appealing, and you see little value in exalting yourself if it requires another's detrimental fall. Fairness, integrity and honesty are qualities that you respect and expect in your dealings with others, and ethical or moral considerations are taken into account in your life. These form your code of relationships, and you try to stay as true to these as possible, even if at times this may require you to forgo some success or progress, as you are not usually willing to compromise for the sake of any advancement. You can adopt an individual chivalry and style of conduct. While you have leadership ability, you try to ensure that you deal correctly with others from any position of responsibility, and are willing to help others on their way, provided they do not attempt less scrupulous tactics to progress. Organizational and managerial qualities are likely to be present, and you can take the strain of highly demanding tasks, proving to be a reliable, efficient and conscientious worker who can purposefully carry out and design successful plans of action. Spheres that may attract include law, business management, education, media, personal creativity and physical endeavors. Opportunities may steer you towards deeper interpersonal contacts, and working in areas of counseling and guidance may be highlighted. One asset that you may possess for this work is a genuine tolerance for others, allowing each to hold their unique view of life, and having respect for their free nature. Many inwardly condemn people for failing to be like themselves, taking an attitude that everyone should conform to a picture that they have developed. Fortunately, the life process disagrees with that attitude, and displays an incredible abundance of variety. You tend to form a realistic perception of life, so that your expectations are not too excessive and unreal, and you appreciate the gains that you do make through expressing your creative talents and powerful energies. A need for disciplined focus may be required at times, as you may be faced with various options and lack a clarity of purpose which diffuses your will power. Be wary against occasional acts of impulse; they may not always work to your advantage, and a careful and steady progression can prove more beneficial. Working in harmony with this trine energy can serve to open doors throughout your life; be alert to recognize when opportunities are being presented, so that you can take full advantage of the gifts of life.


Jupiter Sextile Mercury

This period often represents a significant opportunity to learn because you tend to have a greater thirst to know. Wherever you direct your attention you probably will receive what you want. You likely see the big picture while at the same time you can pay attention to the necessary details to make any vision a success. However, you may prefer to spend your time acquiring information that appeals to you. To take full advantage of this cycle, it helps to have a plan to pursue. Even without a clear map you can use this time to develop one, as you likely will find it easy to put together the pieces of any concept.

This is an excellent time to improve your analytical skills by furthering your education in some way. It may occur through formal or informal schooling, or through experiences that assist in clarifying your thoughts. Making connections probably comes very easily to you now. This includes bringing ideas together into a comprehensive pattern of thinking to establishing ties with other people that are of mutual benefit. Whatever way your life appears disjointed, this interval offers the possibility to become reconnected. Distorted or limited perspectives can clear or broaden with a minimum of effort.

While you doubtless will seek to accumulate information, you can profit from distributing it as well. You probably have much to offer or at least you may realize that you have resources that others want. Sharing your talents can help to unify your viewpoints while at the same time provide useful content to inquiring minds. You tend to communicate positively, which can draw into your life the right stuff, and probably you will prefer surrounding yourself with people and ideas that are upbeat. You likely are very persuasive as you convey your points with enthusiasm that often is infectious. This period can allow you to break free from old patterns that diminish you and to establish new perspectives that enhance you.

Travel may keep you busy, as you generally stay very active. You usually enjoy taking short trips that can provide a welcome diversion from any routine. Because you are more open than usual you often seek new adventures to occupy your time. You may realize now more than ever your capacity to do a number of things at the same time; your versatility to do them and to do them well can reach a peak. While you benefit from exploring a full spectrum of activities, try to pursue one or two with greater application since this aptitude typically subsides after this cycle ends. Nevertheless, it is a great time to sample the rich variety that life has to offer, if only to discover what makes you glad.

Natal Mercury Sextile Jupiter

Your Mercury sextile to Jupiter indicates that your mind is never at rest. You have a limitless thirst for knowledge and an awesome capacity to accumulate information. But you aren't satisfied with simply being informed; applying your knowledge constructively is as important to you as acquiring it in the first place. You have excellent reasoning ability and keen judgment. Because of your masterful command of language, you can speak and write convincingly. Truth is very important to you, and you will challenge anyone who makes a suspicious-sounding statement. Leaving nothing to chance, you will persist until you discover whether the statements is correct. It truly bothers you when public speakers make irresponsible remarks on a subject about which they are totally misinformed. Knowledge can be a weapon in the wrong hands, and you are quick to respond when you observe it being used to gain control of people's minds. Temperamentally unable to stand such abuse, you will challenge the right of anyone to take such liberties with the public. Education, public speaking, public relations, journalism, and writing novels with historical and timely themes - these are some ways you could use your creative resources and inspiration. Even in fields not mentioned above, you could succeed if the essential function were communication of classical knowledge or current information for practical application. Your desire for knowledge and search for truth will never end. As a teacher, you would inspire your students to seek the heights of their own development. Travel would be especially broadening for you, for it would help you to understand the differences among national and ethnic origins. You could translate your reactions into a thoughtful essay that would be illuminating to the reader. While you may not be a fervent member of any organized religious organization, you recognize the importance of believing in something. You allow everyone the liberty of his own beliefs, and you certainly would not try to force your ideology on others.


Sun Trine Ascendant

You feel outgoing and friendly today and seem to attract more opportunities to connect with other people. Your confidence is high and this is a good day for public relations, or selling or promoting yourself and your projects. You’re a natural performer and will delight in entertaining others, and will easily express your creative ideas. You have good physical energy and may enjoy competitive activities, but will make sure you have fun in the process.

Natal Sun Trine Ascendant

The Sun trine the Ascendant shows that you have a generous disposition, and you are self-confident about your ability to succeed in almost everything you do. You are generally optimistic about all your affairs, and easily win the co-operation of the people you deal with. Creative by nature, you use your talents with such imagination that it seems inspired. Although you have abundant vitality, you are inclined to be apathetic about taking full advantage of your potentials, so you shortchange yourself of the benefits you could derive from them. Possibly you are even lazy at times, feeling that there is plenty of time to do what you have to. You have inherited good resources of character from your parents, but you still have a mind of your own. If you will accept the responsibility for it, you can successfully seek your own fortune. You give too much attention to your shortcomings and failings, and you do not react well to criticism. You like to believe that you do everything as well as the next person, and for the most part you do. Your future is very important to you, and you seek a career that will allow you creative expression and give you security in later years. Because you prefer a career that makes demands on your talents, you will probably become a professional in the endeavor you choose. You want to be admired for performing your job well, and you expect to be well paid. You need the challenge of competition in order to strive for excellence in your craft. You should find a life partner you shares your enthusiasm for the good things in life; such an alliance would make working for your goals and security worth the effort.

Best way to put this: Don't let past experiences make you nervous!





1. This covers me Two of Wands, DominionI already have what I need to start a career in EMS. The Two of Wands shows that I have command and control over the situation. This really wasn't an issue surrounding the question, but it's good to know I am on the right track, at least. Perhaps I this card signals that I am rethinking the details of what is holding me back. I was good at EMTing and this shows I would still be good at it and more than able to do the job, again.

2. This crosses me for good or ill Two of Cups, Love: Although I can hardly think of how this would cross me for ill, I can imagine that a sense of complacency would not allow me to proceed forward, mentally, to Paramedic school. If I were satisfied with being "just" an EMT, then the motivation to take my training further might be diminished. It may also be a warning that; since I would enjoy working in the EMT field so much; it could limit my personal time; cause me to want to work too much; and reach a burn-out stage more quickly.

3. This is under me Four of Pentacles, Power: This card shows that I have laid the groundwork for school. All of my ducks are in a row. Fours are about balance and focus, like having a table prepared with all the necessary ingredients. Elementally, all four suits are present in the reading, also, which means there is a great deal of balanced energy. The Magician (6th position) has the four elements on a table, as well.

4. This is behind me Ace of Pentacles, Root of Earth: This is the first indicator that past experience can aid or hinder me. Is all the energy in the past, or behind me? Or does this mean I will be more prepared to move forward with the plan to attend school? Is it an indicator that burn-out will occur more quickly? I think it's all-of-the-above, and that this is advisement or warning that I need to be careful about working (as an EMT) and going to Paramedic school at thie same time. This card is a bit of "been there, done that" syndrome...

5. This crowns me and may come into being Five of Wands, Strife: Turmoil and competition, just what most people say about Paramedic school. I will no longer have "a life" for at least a year while attending school. There will also be a number of personalities thrown into the mix, and not necessarily comfortably. This card comes as no surprise and is definitely something to be expected!

6. This is before me I. Magician, Mercury: This card is the ultimate "you are prepared for this" card, at least this is what the appearance is (note the monkey hiding behind the table ). Communication will be key here. It will be important in school to work as a team member and not come across as a know-it-all, etc. I don't see myself as this type of person, but it doesn't mean that others will perceive me as this (again, the monkey hiding there). Interesting that the only two Majors point to how others perceive me, with the Hermit in the "Family & Friends' Opinion" position (8th position).

7. Root of the Situation Six of Swords, Science: Conscious or subconscious, I don't think it really matters. This is a cerebral card, and deals with issues going on in the head, not physically. The mental journey (note that it is traveling backwards) may be a set-back for me and will be the root cause of failure to move forward with this. Good to know that it is all mental, and that physically it ill not be so demanding (due to lack of sleep, improper nutrition, things like this, because of scheduling). As I will be working nights and attending day-class every third day (all day Saturdays), this was a point of major concern for me. The physical demand will not be the problem. This is actually a promising card, because when I feel good physically I do better with tasks.

8. Family & Friends' Opinion IX. Hermit, Virgo: This is a card of isolation, no doubt. People will see less of me (and perhaps not like it), but it will be temporary. The understanding of friends and family will be that this is a phase of preparation (a Virgo attribute). The literal interpretation of my up-coming hermit-like activity is apparent.

9. Hopes & Fears Queen of Swords, Libra: Everything will balance out. Is this what I fear? Probably. As a water sign (Cancer), generally I am more comfortable with things in flux. Although, Cancer is also a cardinal sign, like Libra, and so easily adaptable to a set schedule type of lifestyle (school every third day/working nights), at least temporarily. The Queen of Swords can be overly regimented in her style, which I am not too satisfied with, but will be tolerable for a limited amount of time. A year seems like a long time, but it is doable. I also see the Queen with outstretched hand to the card Strife, meaning I fear a little competition is in store for me. So, the hope is that I will have a more predictable schedule, at least for while, but at the same time it is something that is a little bit daunting. 

10. Outcome Knight of Swords, Gemini: Ah, back to my normal self! I am a Sidereal Gemini and so reflect many of these qualities. "Back to my usual self", maybe? In the end, it seems I will be returning to a state of normalcy, not so much in my present life but the way I was a few years ago when everything changed, and so much fore the better. Long story short: Paramedic school was a career path that I was working toward when issues in my personal life disrupted it. This is a continuation of this plan now. Gemini/Knight of Swords shows a positive outcome not only because the Knight is, literally, moving forward in the reading, but also because he is representative of me moving forward with my life and my (old/new) career path.

Transiting Moon square Midheaven 0°25 arcseconds

        Your emotions are quite strong and are very important to you, but you will have to resolve certain tensions. First of all, your needs and feelings may often conflict with what other people seem to expect of you. Or you may feel like going one way even though you know it would be better to go the opposite way. The problem is, there is no one answer as to which way you should go each time. Your feelings are sometimes more correct than rational judgments, which may be based on ideas taught by others with no thought for your individuality. You have to live with others, but at the same time you have to be yourself. If reason tells you to go one way and emotion says the opposite, think about your choices carefully. If the 'reasonable' path helps others but offers you very little, then your emotions may be trying to tell you what your real needs are. On the other hand, your feelings may come from old, outdated ideas and silly childish fears. You may be reluctant to face the world of growing up. You will need the advice of a faithful friend, perhaps one of your parents, who can show you which choice is best for you without having a stake in the result. As you get older, you should be able to make these decisions more easily. Your emotions and ideas about your life should reinforce each other. Take your time growing up, however; you may take longer than others, because you have farther to go.
