"The stars would not be in the heavens if we
were meant to walk in darkness."

You need not know a thing about astrology to live in attunement to the natural Lunar Cycles. The progressing lunar cycles and their changing eight lunar phases is a natural and dependable time piece of spiraling creative expression. Participating and acting in time with the changing lunar phases can enhance your creative process, synchronize your mind and body, teach you how to breathe with your emotions and to live in the power of the present, and help you to become more productive and follow through with your plans and ideals. Most of all, it can drastically reduce stress that is so prominent when living in our modern-day mechanized and synthetic world that is out of touch with our natural biological rhythms. Simply download the Lunar Planner Introduction and each month's Lunar Calendar to learn how. It is free and simple.

This Lunar Month's Theme

Fortuity & Serendipity

February 8, 2016 - March 9, 2016

This February 8, 2016 Moon lies in an area of the heavens where the constellations of Capricorn and Aquarius overlap. The New Moon lies under the auspices of Dephinus, the Dolphin star system, and over Gruis the Crane, of resolute verdicts, decisive decisions based upon bodies of knowledge, and harbinger of fortuitous tidings, especially regarding legalities, business dealings, constitutional matters, and news associated with new life and new beginnings. This is an eloquently expressive and articulate area of the zodiak, with gregarious and loquacious qualities. It is of libraries, courts, congresses, publishing houses, literary agencies, or where any ideas and information is formulated, agreed upon and concretized. Delphinus' influence invites us to breathe and trust in higher principle, and to allow ourselves to be guided by higher forces into opportunities or directions that would not occur by our efforts alone.

Saturn-Neptune Square 2016

Venus and Saturn, and Ceres and Neptune initiate new cycles, augmenting the influence of the Saturn-Neptune square, occurring throughout 2016.

Juno is the asteroid of covenant relationships and soul colleagues. Juno is not only of personal relations, but also those of a business and economic nature to those of political leaders and nations of the world, along with the commitments and agreements we make in our relations. Juno begins her few-month retrograde on March 2 conjoining the southern claw of the Scorpion / scale of Libra bringing emphasis to address and change past patterns expressed in our relationships, and to establish greater equilibrium and harmony in our relations. The entire retrograde provides a time to explore commitments in relationships, mutual compatibility, what is important to us in our relationships. It can be a time of recommitting or renegotiating agreements, commitments and contracts. Juno initiates a new synodic cycle during the midst of her retrograde in mid-sidereal Libra, which will then fully engage as Juno returns direct on June 22, 2016.

Jupiter opposite Chiron 2016

Jupiter, currently retrograde and still conjoining the North Lunar Node, makes its second opposition to Chiron, as Chiron approaches the South Lunar Node. The Jupiter-Chiron opposition, which began in November or 2015 and continues through August of 2016, marks the mid-point of realization in the Jupiter-Chiron cycle. This is a part of the compounded Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune cycle that began in September to 2009. We are now entering (throughout 2016) the second half of the Jupiter-Neptune cycle and the Jupiter-Chiron cycle, a time of realization and manifestation in these cycles. This also occurs along with the Saturn–Neptune square and the Jupiter-Saturn square, which mark entry into the last quarters of these cycles continuing throughout the remainder of this decade—a prominent completion period. The completion of the Jupiter-Saturn cycle, occurring in 2020, also coincides with the completion of the Jupiter-Pluto and Saturn-Pluto cycles, which catalyzes a primary reset for society.

Mars makes its opposition to Sedna, stimulating our impetus to action in this lunar cycle as the First Quarter Moon conjoins Sedna, and Algol and the Gorgonias of Perseus, particularly bringing stimulus to draw forth and apply the power of the feminine in action, and confronting our fears to do so.

First Quarter Moon Excerpt

Sedna and the several other very distant planets recently discovered with orbits in the far reaches of our solar system have very long orbital periods, in the many thousands of years. Thus, in concert with Earth's precessional cycle, they influence the very evolutionary formation/engineering of life for the soul collective on Earth. They reveal patterning inherent in the very genome of our wholistic makeup—the omic in which we exist. The revelation of these planets at this time in our evolutionary transition provides inspiration for humanity to begin to embrace, understand and consciously address our far distant heritage and the psycho-physiological patterns that heritage creates, challenges common to every single being in our solar system that transcend the more recent cultural, racial, and sexual differences we experience. Sedna not only invites us to address issues surrounding the exile of the feminine principle and its reemergence, but also to discover/remember a far more embracing extraterrestrial-related evolutionary narrative.

Eta Carinae of Argo Navis

Eta Carinae of Argo Navis is the most luminous, massive, and energetic star known in our galaxy—estimated to be 100 times the mass of our Sun, and to radiate five million times more energy than our Sun. A gas shell surrounding Eta extends 4000 times the size of our solar system. Eta Carinae, Lord of the Waves, the Akkadian Ea (Ia), the Sumerian Enki, chief god and founder of the city Eridhu (Eridu) (he who warned Zuisudra, the Sumerian Noah, about the flood), is a portent of evolutionary change and impels environmental preparation for such change.

Haumea and Eris are approaching their forth geocentric opposition, an energetic that began in late 2014 (with the first opposition) and that continues through 2017 (with the last opposition). The Haumea-Eris opposition marks the mid-point in the Haumea-Eris cycle that began quite long ago, in late 1831 at cuspal sidereal Aquarius, impelling a movement to emerge from a self-centered exclusive judgmental segregated social modality into a humanitarian modality, one that is inclusive and embracing of all people as being equal. This was when and where these two gals were in cahoots, little to our awareness, instigating a radical intercession by the matriarchal-feminine principle. Both are extremely strong, dynamic and enduring feminine forces, not to mention Eris is determined to expose our defensive pious platitudes veiling a far greater reality. Uranus, the radical and revolutionary great awakener, is now about to aid in the process as it joins forces with Eris. Uranus is now approaching its 3° orb to Eris (opposite Haumea), starting an unprecedented and prominent planetary configuration that will add a revelatory lightning stimulus to our already cathartically transformative year, with the first of three geocentric triggers beginning in June 2016 and continuing through March of 2017.

The Disseminating Moon conjoins Haumea and Eta Carinae of Argo Navis, in opposition to Eris, impelling demonstrable application of Haumea's feminine influence, one expressing dynamic power from a state of emotional equanimity and poise in the midst of turbulence to manifest a rebirth in our lives and in our world. It invites attunement to nature and the natural forces of life. It impels a highly energetic and intelligent creative expression to ensure the harmony of our environmental resonance in all areas of life, biologically and ecologically in preparation for greater changes yet to come.

Uranus, Eris and Haumea

Theses are but a few of many events occurring in this lunar cycle. The Monthly Lunar Planner explores the details of these events, their meaning and more—the underlying cosmic currents upon which we evolve and which guide our daily lives—based in star-level astronomical astrology and synodic astrology.

Seismic Alert: Planetary geometric configurations occurring in 2016 can cause exceptionally strong geophysical resonances, especially in mid-Feb through March, and in mid-May through June.

Solar Cycle # 25 & #26 Predictions & the Coming Mini Ice Age

Solar Cycle 25 (2020 / 2025-peak) is expected to be the smallest in over 300 years, if it even shows up. The Modern Warm Period is over as we now enter a Solar Minima, plummeting Earth into a period of global cooling, expected to catalyze a Mini Ice Age, like occurred during the Sun's last Grand Minimum of solar activity, known as the Maunder Minimum.

"A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the ‘mini ice age’ that began in 1645....

Looking ahead to the next solar cycles, the model predicts that the pair of waves become increasingly offset during Cycle 25, which peaks in 2022. During Cycle 26, which covers the decade from 2030-2040, the two waves will become exactly out of synch and this will cause a significant reduction in solar activity...."

Jupiter-Saturn Cycles, Solar Cycles and Climate Change

A primary fact that many climatologists and environmentalists ignore is that planetary cycles synchronize with Solar Cycles, which in turn drives Climate Cycles. Jupiter's cycles synchronize with the solar cycles, modulated by Saturn, and somewhat by the Gas Giants Uranus, and Neptune. The Jupiter cycle is 11.8 years. The Sunspot cycle is 11-12 years....

Dec 9, 2015 - New Clues to Ceres' Bright Spots and Origins

As of this week, Dawn has reached its final orbital altitude at Ceres, about 240 miles (385 kilometers) from the surface of the dwarf planet. In mid-December, Dawn will begin taking observations from this orbit, including images at a resolution of 120 feet (35 meters) per pixel, infrared, gamma ray and neutron spectra, and high-resolution gravity data.


March, 2015 - ESA's Gaia Mission (billion-star surveyor)

"Gaia is an ambitious mission to chart a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, in the process revealing the composition, formation and evolution of the Galaxy. Gaia will provide unprecedented positional and radial velocity measurements with the accuracies needed to produce a stereoscopic and kinematic census of about one billion stars in our Galaxy and throughout the Local Group. This amounts to about 1 per cent of the Galactic stellar population. The mission's ultimate goal is to create the largest, most precise 3D map of our Galaxy ever made." (ESA)

Our Galaxy, the Milky Way

July 3, 2015 - "This image, based on housekeeping data from ESA's Gaia satellite, is no ordinary depiction of the heavens. While the image portrays the outline of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, and of its neighbouring Magellanic Clouds, it was obtained in a rather unusual way...."

NASA's Dawn Spacecraft, while orbiting Vesta, found some surprising things on the giant asteroid—things that have prompted this statement from Chris Russell, Dawn principal investigator from UCLA: "We're seeing enormous mountains, valleys, hills, cliffs, troughs, ridges, craters of all sizes, and plains. Vesta is not a simple ball of rock. This is a world with a rich geochemical history. It has quite a story to tell!."

About the Monthly Lunar Planner

Planetary cycles create the evolutionary currents of growth occurring within ourselves and our lives. To know what these cycles of life are asking of us is to consciously participate in life from a place of personal empowerment and inner peace. In this awareness and attunement, we can walk the path leading to our highest fulfillment—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The Lunar Planner is an experiential tool teaching how to live in attunement to the natural Lunar & Planetary Cycles—supplemented with astronomical star-level astrology and much more.

There are three parts to the Monthly Lunar Planner Publication:

• The Lunar Planner Introduction
• The Monthly Lunar Calendar
• The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary

The Monthly "Lunar Calendar" and the "Lunar Planner Introduction" PDF downloads are FREE to all visitors to this web site. These two documents will teach you how to live in attunement to the Lunar Cycles. (Links to these files can be found below.) A new "Lunar Calendar" is made available just before each New Moon. If you use the Monthly Lunar Calendar like a daily journal while using the Lunar Planner Introduction as guide, you can quickly learn how to participate in harmony with the natural lunar spiral of growth and gain an entirely new understanding and perspective of your life experience.

The "Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary," also made available just before each New Moon, is available by subscription. This monthly publication articulates the opportunity for growth in consciousness each lunar month offers and how each month's lunar theme unfolds throughout the changing phases of the Lunar Calendar. I explore the theme of each lunar month and its unfoldment in our lives with "astronomical star-level astrology" which I have evolved over many years. This is not sign-based astrology (topical or sidereal), but is experientially-based astrology exploring alignments with individual stars and constellations much like one would naturally learn by living and sleeping under the starry heavens.

The rest of the Lunar Planner web site including the "Lunar Planner Forum," and many other educational resources are free and are available to everyone.

I also offer a few other publications available to purchase: Planetary Bio-harmonic Audio Meditations, Personalized Star Charts, and other educational material.

Lunar Planner Members


The Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary available on each New Moon (based in sidereal / star level astrology) is available for a small subscription fee—merely the price of one good Cappuccino per month.

I hope my existing visitors, as well as new visitors, find the subscription of value. After offering the monthly Lunar Planner Commentary for free for many years, I now ask for this small subscription fee to allow me the ability to continue to host and evolve what has become a rather voluminous web site.

Lunar Planner Forum for subscribers and non-subscribers.


The Lunar Planner Forum is an exciting addition to the Lunar Planner Web Site available to everyone—to subscribers and non-subscribers.

The Lunar Planner Forum is intended to be a fun and educational way for Lunar Planner visitors to learn from each other's experiences.

Discuss the Lunar Planner, Sidereal Astrology, Earth's Precessional Cross, and all other Lunar Planner related topics—from bio-harmonics to the stars; private messaging for forum participants, and much more.


New subscribes have a five-day trial period to explore the current Monthly Lunar Planner before committing to the 6-month subscription. You can also visit the Lunar Planner Archive to view previous issues of the Lunar Planner so you can get a feel for what the monthly Lunar Planners are all about—a continuing story-line revealing the monthly energetics creating our evolutionary spiral of growth, articulated through sidereal star-level astrology, synodic astrology, and astronomical mythology, the picture-language of the Greater Heavens. Lunar Planners older than 6 months are available to non-subscribers.

TESTIMONIAL


Hi Nick,


I wanted to write you a note and let you know that you are the first subscription that I have ever signed up for on the internet since I have been using it. I have been so used to everything being free for so long in the 'wild-west' days of the web that I didn't really find anything I thought was worth paying for...


Until you !


I have been wanting to write you / speak with you for a while anyway because the level of your understanding is so profound that I wanted to connect a little more on where it is coming from. I had been aware of your work through another galactic astrologer friend of mine Norma Tarango years ago. She was sending me some of your work...and since I have found it online and I print it out and read it faithfully every month...


So this is to tell you that I think subscribing to your work is well worth it. Your level of understanding and galactic connectivity is profound and it has opened much understanding for me...so thank you !


Thank you again for your work and all that you carry ~ Nickki Lee Hill
