Since so much is in Virgo, the first step of this post will be a clarification in advance of what would otherwise be an avalanche of questions and challenges. Mostly, this edition discusses planetary patterns that precisely align in a little more than two weeks... and then some through September. So the term fortnight (two weeks) is a bit of a misnomer. A little temporal indulgence if you please.

I also fancy the word fable as the essence of this post is what tale will script that can later be related in legendary and mythic terms referring to your efforts of the next month?

Though the post extends through all of the upcoming month, if one spends the next two weeks in pre-preparation and activates the first transit to be discussed, which does indeed form within a fortnight, benefits shall follow.

Not only that, as should be evident by now, I am fond of alliterations. And now...

Mars in Leo squares Saturn in Scorpio on September 8th - 9th. The square between Mars and Saturn is unnecessarily feared. True, it does not portend well for hostilities in Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan or other conflicts of which we know little. However, personally, there is much to be gained. Perhaps following a few dictums does the trick.

Feed the internal edge.
Enjoy the pressure of being pressed into action, whether you feel ready or not.
Work it.
Do research.
Plan and plot courses.
Follow those plans and navigate the courses.
Work smart, with complete economy of effort.
Savor each completed step along the way.
Distinguish between cheap and quality. Always pick quality.
Pursue excellence.
If your best effort is rejected, review it and if necessary, improve it. Send it out to twice the places you submitted before.
Allow yourself to feel pride for jobs well done.
Relax about boasting. The squeeze of the time will call out blowhards. Those with merit enjoy the transformation of horn blowing into soul confidence.

On September 15th Mercury in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries. There are a few simple rules:

If you have to deliver a shocking statement, deliver the shocking statement. You can still be polite about it.
Ask for more than what you want. Never undercut your desires or expectations.
Tell people what you really think if asked. No patronizing head nods.
If you want to back out of a conversation or situation, excuse yourself and get out. No apology or excuse is necessary. You don’t want to be there. End of story.

As September 16th arrives, Saturn and Lunar Node merge in Scorpio. This alignment between the task master and focus finder is fabulous. Here you can:

Clear the past by applying a healthy dollop of forgiveness to situations that still haunt you late at night.
Assume only those responsibilities that belong to you.
Focus your plan for following your destiny.
Notice those things to which you are naturally attracted, and those from which you are naturally repelled.
Make every act purposeful, including fun, laughter and recreation. They all have their purpose.

Two days later on the 18th, Venus takes on North Node and Saturn in Scorpio.

Review your worth. Petition for a raise by noting the quality and excess of how you work.
Or if self-employed, consider revising your prices.
If you feel sub or un consciously guilty for asking for more, let everyone know you’re going to raise prices and run a three-day sale in advance of the increase.
Sanction the value of purpose in life.
Sanction the value of passion in life.
Sanction the value of your spirituality.

Come September 23rd, Mercury in Libra opposes Eris in Aries.

While you certainly don’t want to be excluded, this is not a great time to announce you’re showing up regardless, or for crashing parties.
Ensure words like Milquetoast, compliant, yielding and pushover are not written in your biography.
Instead, discover how and why you are unique, meritorious and incredibly damn intriguing.
Hone the skills you need to get through the portals of special places you feel you belong (example: if you want to be invited to the Bohemian Artists Ball, create art like a Bohemian).
Apply to clubs and organizations where you want to fit in, and wait for the reply. If you get in, groovy. If not, wait and apply again, redoing all the steps above of the transits of the month.
Be firm and confident within your boldness, by realizing what you feel at the core is what you are.

We started the month with a square involving Mars in Leo; let’s finish with a square to Mars in monarchial zodiac stature. On September 28th Venus in Scorpio squares off against Mars in Leo. Mars occupies a fire sign; Venus works a water sign. The result: the greatest mobilization force known... steam. Steamy and sultry, this transit insists that unabated passion be applied to every aspect of life. If it’s worth doing, do it with focused intent and full intensity. Hold nothing back. Some may need to back away. That’s fine. Be around and collaborate with those not afraid to throttle it up and match your efforts.

So, there’s your fun for the fortnight. This year is blowing the pages off calendars. Should it seem difficult to engage any of the aspects above, that means it’s time for a consultation... or a report... or the Galactic Trilogy CD. Shop the store and get what you need. Saturn’s in Scorpio... if you know you’re going to cave and get it, why wait?

In astrological terms, a grand sextile is an extremely rare, six-pointed star, or hexagram, that forms in the heavens when six planets align, each approximately sixty degrees apart. When such an auspicious, archetypal symbol locks into position (like the tumblers inside the door of a bank vault falling into place), as happens in the early afternoon of July 29 (EST), it signals the opening of a window of immense opportunity (perhaps the opportunity of a million lifetimes) – a time of greatly accelerated evolutionary potential – for ourselves, our planet, our solar system and even our galaxy.

The living reality behind the sacred geometry of the grand sextile is known by many names and descriptions around the world, depending upon one’s cultural vantage point and level of perception. These include: the vehicle of ascension; the vector equilibrium; the double torus; the star of david; the yin/yang duality; the flower of life; the tree of life; the yab/yum; the hieros gamos; the sacred marriage of twin flames; the merkaba; the chariot of the gods; the chariot of fire; and the awakened soul, to name a few.

Our galaxy has its own vehicle of ascension, of course, as does our solar system, our planet, and every sentient being, including those of the human persuasion. The Tibetan Book of the Dead describes this vehicle as a body of light, which survives physical death, making transmigration through various realms and lifetimes possible. Without an activated light body, there would be no continuity of consciousness, no conscious movement through star gates or portals into higher dimensions of reality, no evolutionary leaps from 3D to 5D, and, ultimately, no evolutionary progress, at all.

In fact, according to Tibetan teachings, if a person’s light body is not sufficiently activated when encountering the pure light of awareness at the time of death, he/she will “swoon into unconsciousness,” abdicating free will in the process, until consciousness is regained and stabilized. Typically, our light bodies are only activated to the extent we manage to achieve the delicate balance of masculine and feminine energies residing within at a relatively high frequency. Think of the right and left hemispheres of your own brain (representing the embodied, holistic, intuitive faculties and the transcendent, linear, rational faculties, respectively) and how challenging it can be to manage a true and consistent balance between the two. This is a rare accomplishment, or at least it has been until NOW in the evolutionary scheme of things. The galactic harmonics represented by the grand sextile of July 29 could be a game changer in this regard, however.
Due to the presence of several astrological conjunctions on that day, the grand sextile manifesting in the sky involves a staggering ten “planets”: Saturn and the North Node on the Ascendant (karmic fulfillment of one’s destiny, catalyzing a profound rebirth); Pluto (deep transformation); Neptune and Chiron (mystical alignment to one’s higher calling); the Moon and South Node (the soul’s attunement to knowledge and wisdom acquired in past-lives); Jupiter and Mars (spiritual warriorship); and Venus (personal love and harmony with nature), all of which fall in feminine earth and water signs, further enhancing the graceful flow of the energies involved, while also providing the necessary grounding.

As the portal opens wide for your own particular journey of ascension on July 29, consider taking bold action on behalf of all beings who suffer, yourself included. And as you make that giant leap of faith into the unknown, in whatever way you feel guided, draw strength and courage not only from the spiraling vortex of energy represented by the six-pointed star formation described above, but also from the knowledge that this very day was recognized as a window of ascension by ancient Mayan astrologers, as well, who long ago gave it the designation AHAU #3.

The star glyph AHAU is the highest of all Mayan soul codes. It’s associated with union, wholeness, awakening, enlightenment, unconditional love, solar mastery, Christ consciousness, the language of light, ecstasy, limitless bliss, and the crown chakra. Synchronistically, the #3 is characterized in the Mayan system as the galactic heartbeat of creativity, associated with movement, change, flow, current, integration and the sacred trinity. The overall message of AHAU #3, then, pertains to the fluid movement of ascension facilitated by the sacred geometry of the triangle (note: in astrological terms, two overlapping grand trines (or equilateral triangles) constitute a grand sextile).

On Christmas Day, 2012, the One People’s Public Trust was born on an extremely auspicious day, astrologically speaking, with a potent Finger of God formation symbolizing the birth of a new paradigm (see previous posting). Not surprisingly, given this launch date and other factors, OPPT very quickly went viral. Fast forward seven month to July 29, 2013, which all astrological indicators suggest will be an equally potent tipping point, a day when the One People achieve lift off, or critical mass, for the sake of the human race and our beloved planet. Let it be so.

I think many of us are curious about the possible soul connection that may exist between the Cancerian lineage of Diana, to William, and Royal Baby. I have been asked today quite a few times if it is so, so I thought I would share these observations between the charts. I know some of you may find it premature to analyze the chart of a new born in such a way, but I think that we overall can trust good intentions, and learning purposes, wishing the baby well in fulfilling his intended soul journey.
How to begin such a study? There are many compelling factors in the chart that give us clues about the soul history of a person, and then comparing the chart with what may be the reincarnated soul, can add additional perspective on the case.

Note that since we are limited to Facebook format, I will only outline major guidelines and refrain from elaborate analysis.

At first glance, interesting connections exist between Baby and Diana: his Moon on her Saturn, his Venus on her Mars/NN

Diana born with a water grand-trine between Neptune-Chiron-Mercury/Sun and baby born with a water grand-trine between Neptune-Chiron (same)-Mercury-Saturn.
Diana born with a Neptune/Jupiter-Saturn square, Baby born with a Neptune/Jupiter/Saturn grand- trine, and it goes on...

Looking at the baby's chart, we see the dramatic Full Moon which clearly captures a strong personality, ancestral lineage, powerful female presence (while in a male chart).

But what really makes the hair stands, is the baby being born with an 8th house Mars/Jupiter/Mercury -square Uranus - Opposing Pluto. What is that about? I would say this soul did not die of natural causes in a past life...I would say there is a fighting spirit, activism, defiance and change-making assertions in this configuration. Those who know astrology can easily confirm that Mars/Mercury/Uranus square does also reflect car accidents ...since the chart captures our past lives, there is definitely a signature here suggesting such past life scenario. Note that the 8th house component and the Saturn in Scorpio trine certainly capture the mystery and conspiracy theories associated with the death of Diana.

Notice that baby's Uranus (accident apex) is right on the MC of death chart.

Looking at Diana's natal chart, you see she was born with Mars/Uranus/Pluto conjunct - so the same group of planets repeated in the baby's chart through a T-square...and Looking at Diana's death chart, again an angular Uranus (Jupiter)-Mars square...

Basically the same dramatic configuration describing activism, defiant opinions, and the shock of a life interrupted are repeated in the 3 charts...
I would say, this is food for thought...

Looking at the baby's Nodal signature (Nodes capture developmental soul dynamics) - you see a south Node in Taurus in the 6th house, ruled by prominently high, angular, Venus in Virgo on Regulus in the 9th house. This reflects to me someone who came from privilege, very skilled and beautiful, graceful and majestic... with eating disorders...Add Neptune opposing that powerful Venus, and you see a movie star aura, chaotic relationship dynamics, and a deep humanitarian heart.

The North Node in the 12th house in Scorpio suggests an evolutionary need to see the naked Truth and refrain from attachment to privileges if a higher cause requires so. That North Node implies diving into the unknown, leaving security behind, and risking danger, taboo, because the inconvenient Truth must be more important than comfort... between the South and North Nodes, Baby will face these dilemmas between the pretty life, the honorable service, versus the uncovering of inconvenient Truths, political intrigues, collective suffering, and living life raw...Sounds familiar?? Yes, it does parallel the dilemma that his own late grandmother experienced...

Baby is born with a late Scorpio rising degree, and ruler Pluto in that famous T-square. Needless to say this soul is not naive and innocent, he will have to see through the appearances.

I believe royal baby will naturally have a beautiful presence, along with anxiety and emotional intensity that result from a dramatic past life. I trust the strong Cancerian parents will provide the right nurturing environment for such a grand, and wounded, soul, and provide the right support system for him to pursue his evolutionary intention: use his privilege, skills, and charisma to courageously face shadows to answer the plight of collective suffering (12th house scorpio NN)
With blessings — with Diane Pizza.


In traditional astrology, the Sun refers (rules) to the sign of Leo. Leo, of course, is known for its mane and the pride it attaches to that amazing crop of hair and most everything else in life. Astronomers have determined, that not only is there a tidy, energetic mane about our Sun; there is also quite the amazing tail surrounding the Sun’s domain in space.

For more details and to ensure that the denotation and pictures remain intact, consider the following article:

For years astronomers have debated the effective reach of the Sun’s energy upon the planets in the solar system. The point at which solar radiation is no longer felt is known as heliopause. Back in the 1970's it was realized that heliopause extended beyond Saturn, as was the previously believed limit. The new realization, confirmed by spacecraft at the “edge” of our solar system confirmed that Pluto lives within the range of solar influence. And according to one of the diagrams in the article cited above, so do the distant planets. Once can speculate as to whether the more distant Eris and vastly more distant Sedna are included.
