"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

Creative Initiative & the Horns of the Bull

June 16, 2015 - July 16, 2015

Our June 16, 2015 New Moon conjoins Mars, which is also opposite the asteroid Pallas, the Centaur Pholus, and the Dwarf Planets Ixion and Quaoar. Thus the alignment is Mars-Sun-Moon-Earth-Pallas-Pholus-Ixion-Quaoar.

The Mars-Sun-Moon-Earth-Pallas-Pholus-Ixion-Quaoar alignment.


The Mars-New Moon, on the cusp of sidereal Taurus-Gemini, conjoins the South Horn of the Bull, the famous Super Nova Remnant of July 4, 1054 AD in the Crab Nebula, several stars of Orion, and Ensis, the Great Orion Nebula.

Mars New Moon June16, 2015

The Horns of the Bull articulate the pursuit, struggle, and engagement in the physical world. Al Hecka, the south horn, is of stalemates, standoffs, and brick walls—fighting old and antiquated crusades—particularly of a religious-political nature—and blindly or automatically continuing the fight out of habitual pattern even though the original purpose behind what we were fighting for is long gone. Alignments here can indicate a time to surrender the physical struggle and move onward into a field of mutual cooperation. El Nath, the north horn, motivates tenacious perseverance for accomplishment. It inspires the drive to achieve a breakthrough. Alignments with the Horns ask us to discern the difference between causes of worthy pursuit verses those driven from antiquated motive. The conjoining stars of Orion impart a strong, self confident, dignified, reliant and responsive character. Alignments here often indicate success through enterprises in business and commerce, but they can also express as impiety, arrogance, inconsistency in action, hesitation, or indecision. Classically the stars of this area of Orion have a kingly attribute, bringing wealth and significant civil or military honors.

The addition of Mars with the New Moon and the energetics of these stars can intensify world affairs, especially those of a militaristic nature, which can manifest as aggression and a tendency toward warfare in the world at large. This however can also impel audacious brave creative action and strong leadership, providing an opportunity to claim greater personal self-empowerment, and this is the opportunity this lunar cycle offers us personally. This lunar cycle is about the use of personal power and our creative initiative. It is an ideal cycle for initiating enterprising pursuits. The Mars-New Moon is also sextile (60°) to Juno, which creates a harmonic resonance of strength, ideal for creative action in partnerships of all types.

The Mars-New Moon alignment with Pallas, Pholus, Ixion and Quaoar adds a significant complexity to our lunar month's theme. In part, it brings emphasis to the use of creative power in response to tyrannical behavior. There is also strong impetus to use our creative power in a leadership capacity that establishes a greater social justice via a harmonious revolution. Mysterious elements or shrouded events in a whirlwind of confusion occurring in this lunar cycle can act as a catalyzing agent for profound change. This can trigger an avalanche of events that leads to a transformation of a long-standing condition that makes possible a transition or passage that otherwise would not occur.

The controversial military special operation "Jade Helm," to be staged in the southwestern United States, is scheduled to formally start toward the end of this Mars Lunar Cycle, and as the Moon conjoins Mars and Mercury opposite Pluto, which occurs on July 15. However, military convoys have already been moving into place for some time and other states have already been experiencing military operations—engaging during the previous May-June lunar cycle with the potent Mars-Sun-Mercury-Earth-Saturn alignment, which also produced the massive Japan volcanic eruption followed by the Japan 7.8 earthquake. Also occurring during this energetic build-up was the massive cyber-attack of U.S. government agencies exposing the personal data of over 4 million current and former federal government employees, said by some to be a part of Jade Helm's hidden economic-related agenda.

The Sun-Mars alignment also marks the midpoint of vision and realization in the current Earth-Mars cycle that began in April 2014, presented in the March 30, 2014 Lunar Planner.

The Sun and Mars also square the Lunar Nodes in this lunar cycle, peaking from the pre-Gibbous Moon through the Full Moon. This configuration can add an element of emotional instability leading to poor judgment, especially for those in leadership positions. It also brings emphasis to all Mars-related issues, especially with impetus to shift from applying force through antiquated emotional patterns and covert agendas of techno-bureaucracies to intelligent and integrous leadership. There is a tremendous emphasis on Mars throughout this lunar month.

The Crescent Moon joins Venus and Jupiter on June 19 as Venus and Jupiter progressively converge to their conjunction on June 30.

Earth and Pluto begin their new annual synodic cycle in this lunar month in sidereal Sagittarius. The New Horizons spacecraft also makes its Pluto flyby this month. Closest approach is scheduled to occur on July 14. This historic event is expected to bring us unprecedented images and a far greater understanding of the Pluto-Charon binary planet and their several moons.

See a new video of Ceres as NASA's Dawn spacecraft enters it lower mapping orbit of Ceres. This video, posted on June 7, 2015, is from and at an altitude of 8,400 miles (13,600 km). Dawn flew 2,700 miles (4,400 km) over Ceres’ north pole on June 5 beginning a new mapping phase. Images will become increasingly detailed as each additional orbit brings Dawn closer to the surface.

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.

Arctic Sea Ice Measurements

ESA's "CryoSat" measures the annual fluctuations in Arctic sea ice, not only the area of ice coverage but more importantly the volume of sea ice. Images from CryoSat shows a downward trend in sea ice occurring up until 2012, but with a dramatic increase starting in 2013 by about 50% compared to the same time in 2012.

Solar Cycle # 25 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.

Jupiter-Saturn Cycles, Solar Cycles and Climate Change

A primary fact that many climatologists and environmentalists ignore is that planetary cycles drive Solar Cycles, which in turn drives Climate Cycles. The Jupiter cycles govern 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....

March, 2015 - ALMA - In Search for our Cosmic Origins

"The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), an international partnership of the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Natural Sciences (NINS) of Japan in cooperation with the Republic of Chile, is the largest astronomical project in existence. ALMA is a single telescope of revolutionary design, composed initially of 66 high precision antennas located on the Chajnantor plateau, 5000 meters altitude in northern Chile." (ALMA)

ALMA Opens For Public Visits March 17, 2015

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)

Mission Conception: 2000
Payload launched: Dec 19, 2013
Calibration and testing phase, First test Images: Early 2014
Science phase begins: Mid 2014 (five year operational phase)
First catalogue release, planned for summer 2016

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!." Dawn is now on its way to orbit Ceres, expected to arrive in early 2015.

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
