Listen here:








No matter which hemisphere you live in,
whether it's 40° C or F,
lolling before the ocean
on your retirement cruise,
or you're  an Olympic skier
contemplating a horrific mountain slope,
when Pluto rises before the Sun 
in the pre-dawn sky,
everyone feels a moment Of dread.

Every morning when you wake up,
you should give thanks
for the power it provides.
Even if you wake up as if
you had just been to hell and back,
it's actually your unconscious
operating full-time making sure
you don't forget how short life is.
So there is early-morning anxiety
disguised as worry
about this or the other thing
from your latest hangnail
to impending disaster.
Some folks arise sexually obsessed.
Anyway once you're up and about
you come back to the land of the living.
With the lunation at 19 degrees Capricorn
in early January 2016
the month is that much more intense.

This lunation continues the molting process
of each of us
in our evolutionary development
as humans,
both on a personal and sociological level.
We are becoming aware of our
darkest and lightest qualities
and the inevitability of consequence.
Make every effort
to be aware of every moment
you make a choice.
With Pluto rising above the Sun
the more conscious you are
of your choices right now
the better your future
and the future of all beings.

Now it's your turn.
Remember the weird images
we posted in 2008
when Pluto entered Capricorn?
Here they are again,
this time you should write
and essay on how you associate to
them in your

Sun and Rising Sign.
Keep them in your
Michael Lutin portfolio
and every time
pluto makes an aspect
you can add to your essay.
There's a lot more to these pics
than you might think.

Have fun








You’ve still got plenty of passion
bubbling around in there,
and with Mars in your seventh house,
people are still noticing you.
Good thing.
Challenge is life for any Aries.
The same conflict still exists
as the beat goes on;
You want your independence,
but you need the shelter
of a large corporation or other organization
to keep you focused and performing.
If you’re in a philosophical frame of mind,
the Saturn Neptune square
from your ninth house to your twelfth
is a most fascinating examination
of the discrepancy between religious doctrine
and personal spirituality.
Who says what is right for you to do?
Your inner life? Or laws of church and man?

Much more pleasant love life
and relationships
with Venus transiting the seventh house,
brief as these things often are.
Personally, you can be happier
and less hassled
than you were earlier this year.
The Saturn transit now requires
that you be way better organized
and clear about financial deals
involving other people–
wills, legacies, lawsuits, taxes,
and other annoying details.
In questions of mixing friendship and finance–
that’s a tough and tricky one.
It’s not always easy
or possible to keep things from getting muddy,
but you’d better try.

People need your attention,
but not only on your terms.
A deeper commitment demands
you be present on a more consistent basis,
and while that fulfills your need
for a deeper connection,
it encroaches about your mobility
and the unbridled freedom
which you have so jealousy been cultivating.
Although narrowing your focus irritates you,
it helps keep you from wandering all over the place,
mentally and otherwise.
If you are seeking
to obtain or uphold any sort of long-term
professional status and respect,
right now,
it’s going to take a hell of an effort.

A positive attitude is vital
in staying productive
and maintaining well being.
Everybody knows that.
Consistent regularity counts
at least as much.
So you have to find ways
to stay mentally and physically
as active as your body, lifestyle,
and age will permit,
but not let your machine run down.
That’s where your mind comes in.
Or doesn’t, depending on how disciplined
and diligent you remain
when Chiron and the South Node
are passing through your ninth house.
Remain in communication
with sane practical individuals,
even if you think they are boring.

You have to come out and socialize
after many moons this year
of staying solo in your house.
It’s not only emotionally healthy
to take a chance on life,
but it’s better for you in business.
Apart from the continuing long-term issues
with staying healthy
and patching up the walls at work,
while keeping good boundaries,
you’re still enmeshed
with the chaos of finance
and your fascinating if mysterious sexuality.
A fourth house transit of Venus
helps make you feel more intimate
and secure at home and in the family,
considering the losses
many members of your sign
have sustained during 2015.
And it’s actually more like a real home again.

You continue to soldier on,
whether the audience is there or not.
It’s amazing how well you function
as an adult,
although most Virgos
have been doing so since they were five
and keeping the members of their family sane.
Close touch with a sibling now proves that.
In fact, you’ve got to put your head
into personal relationships now,
mainly because for many members
of your sign,
the choice of partner will challenge
the traditional notions of conservative family beliefs.  
One would think that in 2015
such prejudices have all but disappeared.
But they certainly have not,
and it’s up to you to juggle.
You do not, however,
have to keep absolutely everybody happy.

After worrying about money
for so many months,
it’s a relief to see Venus
enter your second house
and let you feel prosperous again,
even if only for five minutes.
Greater efforts must be made
in the areas of communication
and mental health, however.
The older we get
and the more experiences you have,
you realize that idealizing relationships
or believing that all conditions
remain stable are fantasies,
and that we are all presented
with one challenge after another
in our effort to find peace and tranquility.
Only control of the mind can help us
find that spot deep within ourselves.
Always think critically,
but never laugh
at what you once thought was ridiculous.
Miracles happen.

Go ahead.
Feel beautiful, cosmetically as well as inside.
After the more than two years
of losing confidence in your magnetic powers,
rejoice that you’ve got it back.
You’ve got wonderful friends who adore you,
even if your "love life"
gets more impossibly fantasy-oriented than ever.
As an artist, that’s good news.
As a happy little homebody, it’s complicated.
A rivetingly fascinating wrinkle, however,
is the philosophical/psychological question
of love and money.
We see it often between parents and children,
but it exists even between couples.
Love is endless, unconditional, unselfish and giving.
On the other hand, money talks.
See if or how it plays out in your life now.

You must be feeling
about one million times better
than you were this time last year,
even though it may not be
as dramatic a change as you would like.
The transit of Saturn
through your twelfth house
that began in 2012 put you through hell,
not to mention the sense of isolation
that made you feel like
you couldn't even scream about it.


Acting with the highest moral integrity
is certainly the way to go now,
especially with your ruling planet
in the twelfth house.
Your conscience demands it.
It’s just that with Pluto
traveling through your Sign,
you are more self-protective
and survival-oriented
than ever before in your life.
While it would be relaxing
to put all decisions on hold
and take off somewhere,
you have to be where the action is
and keep all the machines running.
These days, thanks to technology,
it is easier for you to be
in two places at once
and not have to resort to cloning.

Dealing with groups and associations i
s supposed to be the Aquarian purpose.
When people gather, however,
the difference in philosophy
and outlook will require flexibility,
which is NOT in every Aquarian’s DNA.
When you’re hooked in financially, however,
you’ve got to suspend prejudgment
and preconceived notions and bend a little.
A powerful woman
figures prominently in all negotiations,
so you’ll have to bite the bullet
and remember that keeping dignified integrity
is way more profitable
than letting fear of failure screw up a possible good deal.

It’s not that you
were necessarily born complicated.
It’s just that the sign of Pisces
contains all possibilities of reality
at any given time.
Pretty much all things are true.
You make an effort to squeeze
into polite society and act professionally.
To do so, you have to conform
to rules and regulations
you think are preposterous.
With Chiron going direct in your sign
and Neptune so prominent,
despite all the help you
get from level-headed partners,
it gets harder by the minute
to go along with social nonsense.




In case you are wondering,
the past always eventually catches up
with the present,
and there is, after all, continuity.
The planet Saturn
has now reached the spot
it held last February and March 2015.
Whatever you were doing back then--
the connections you made,
the issues you were dealing with,
the delays you ran into,
the projects you began,
the people you were involved with--
all of it will now come to fruition one way or the other.
Contacts will be renewed
and you can at last move ahead
on any journey or decisions
that may have been made at that time.
For many months it may seem that nothing came of it,
but you will see now the results
of last February and March.

You gotta adore being an Aries,
no matter how many times
you dance with that big ugly bird
with the bad breath.
You always know exactly
when to stop the music,
before the fatal bite,
and any other crisis before it goes over the line.
Much wellness comes to you
now that allows you to be more productive than ever.
With Venus in charge of your relationships now,
play nice with others.
Pay attention to your honey sweetie pie,
or even business partners.
Maybe even go out on a date.
As always before and after trauma,
you are a force to be reckoned with.


You have been good.
You have been very good.
You’ve behaved almost perfectly.
Just think how stretched to the max
you have been with responsibility
to others and how you have had to obey doctor’s orders,
the "doctor” being just about everybody
demanding your loyalty.
It's good news now
that tensions have lessened a bit
and bonds are far more loving.
If you avoid all extremes now
and work to maintain
a healthy, more balanced regime,
you'll get way more cooperation
from those trying to help you.
You still have some really weird friends.
You should be getting
a much better handle
on your work situation
and not be so overwhelmed
with changes and problems there–
if you are working at all, that is.
There’s a much more stabilizing influence
at the moment
which will reduce all turmoil
over health issues as well.
Not only should you feel more emotionally stable,
but your domestic situation and relationships
with family will vastly improve.
Lingering situations could actually clear up
if you make the effort to listen as well as love,
and between children and adults,
that effort will bring more love and warmth into your life.
Do not sneer.
One more thing:
Despite damage done,
career could still survive.

We have all heard the old saying
eight hundred million times:
Once you are able let go
of your expectations and romantic illusions,
love comes back into your life
in a more mature way.
But who wants THAT
when you need comforting?
It’s true, though.
The heart mysteriously
repairs itself when you say goodbye
to your naive notions.
Communication reopens
in the most magnificent way.
Apart from the usual aches and pains,
you can find joy
when those you hold dear
are right there in your home.
Looking at it with perspective,
you can think maybe there is a cosmic plan.

Asserting your attractiveness
and reminding everyone of your potency
can still give you the same old rush
you had at eighteen.
Somehow you managed to do it,
thanks to the dignity
of Neptune’s transit
through your solar eighth house.
It may still be a little squirrely
(read: messy and unclarified),
but Jupiter brings increasing prosperity.
Plus the homeless abandonment anxiety levels
have mercifully decreased tremendously.
If anybody asks you
who your current main squeeze is,
just toss your head back and laugh
and be all casual and answer,
"Oh, it’s like a brother and sister thing."

Thanks to a New Moon
in your solar third house of communication
and close cosmic alignment
with Jupiter in your sign,
you can stop worrying for two seconds
and enjoy what is considered
essentially a good omen.
Closer contact now with siblings, cousins,
and all the people buzzing you
keeps you running around and busy
and definitely unable
to completely isolate yourself from the world.
You can’t tolerate
too much outside noise these days,
and require enough quiet
and separation
to be able to think
and sort out your feelings.
Of course,
guess who the burdens
fall upon to deal
with family problems and give support?
Be grateful you have the brains
and health to do it.

Jupiter in your 12th house
adds a further blessing
financially and otherwise,
mainly because you're being protected
by an unseen force.  
Although we all love
when Venus goes through our sign,
because then we can feel gorgeous
without feeling guilty,
it lasts only a few weeks.
It's wonderfully restorative, however,
puts you back in control of yourself
(your favorite thing),
and gives you the keys
to handling everything in business
and personal life without going ballistic.
You do tend to lose it when people bug you,
which they usually do.
Venus and Mars both in Libra
bevel even your sharpest edges
and grant you grace,
even if you do you growl
silently beneath your breath
now and then,
and you do.

We have heard it a million times
from sages and psychics
and mystical, spiritually evolved people:
Attachments cause sorrow
and freedom from attachments
leads to freedom from sorrow,
and is the only path to joy and liberation.
We don't only live in our heads, however.
You've got a heart, too.
And you can't ignore
your need for love,
whether it leads you to joy or sorrow.

The entrance of Saturn into Sagittarius
at the end of September
has given you a more sober approach
to your future,
but in many ways it has been liberating.
Let’s face it:
Saturn is always a mixed blessing.
You are freed from impossible dilemmas,
and certainly no longer the plaything
of hidden circumstances and manipulative people.
In fact, you're definitely in charge
of how your life is to go from here on.
At least nobody is going to be allowed
to play with your head.
you are floating on a raft
and hiding your personal confusion quite well.
The trick is to maintain
a professional demeanor
and maybe no one will notice
how wobbly you still are.

Jupiter bodes well for travel.
Neptune going direct
is great for music and poetry,
but NOT for clear, practical communication.
Venus and Mars overhead
help you get more motivated.
The big news, however,
is Saturn in the twelfth house
and Pluto in Capricorn.
You stand apart from it all,
and watch all the little ants
dragging around their crust of stale bread.
You still prefer to be an outsider looking in,
while you cope with your own survival.
Though you’ve lost some,
you need friends be part
of a larger human experience.
If you have foreign contacts or investments
or wise advisors at a distance,
call them in now.
A good shrink can always help.

You’ve come to see the complete idiocy
of anyone thinking they can
control the flow of money
and predict financial cycles.
For many members of your sign
the period from October
on marks the beginning of a new adventure,
especially in your professional sphere.
In many ways,
you are currently
like the proverbial monarch
who is abdicating the throne
and preparing to pass on the keys
to the kingdom.
You’ve got to be sick
up to your eyeballs
of the rat race by now,
and looking around with eyes toward the future,
hoping to finally find a more fulfilling outlet.
This is not about retiring to the farm
and growing organic beans--
although if such a pursuit
could be profitable and
still allow you to participate
in the "Common Good",
well then, maybe.

As usual,
you have every possible thing going on
at the same time,
inside your head and out.
Thank God for Jupiter
in the seventh house right now.
You are blessed to have supportive people
who have been gifted
with a more pragmatic attitude.
Shrewd as you are,
now you need the alliance
of those with business heads
to help you manifest and realize your lofty ideas.
On a personal level,
they can also cut you off at the bar,
and limit all intake
of destructive substances.
Summing up:
Keep your balance
between ecstasy and sobriety,
but don't let anybody put you down
for your eccentricities and ideas.
There’s great genius in your madness.
Neptune in its dignities will prove that to everyone.



Message to everyone;
Thanks to the eclipses of 2015,
which are culminating now,
we all hope to have gained the wisdom
to find joy and happiness
in the blessings we have
instead of obsessively focusing
on what's missing. 
The eclipses have hopefully taught us also
to move from self-centered narcissism
to greater appreciation
and sensitivity to others-
from a stubborn independence to cooperation,
from primitive acting out
to the spirit of compromise. 
The crossing of the
Moon's path with the Zodiac
helps us find a middle way
between the male and female
that live within us all.


Your superpowers have not failed you.
It's just that hopefully
you have learned that even superheroes
can get bossy, impatient, nasty, and controlling
when independence is at stake.
Sometimes you have to land flat on your back
to appreciate help.
Kindness, diplomacy,
and a gentle approach to life is a strength,
not a weakness.

Many, many people
believe that a strong belief in prayer
can produce miracles.
Positive thinking
probably can move mountains.
When escapist behavior, however,
replaces practical common sense,
growth is not possible.
In business deals or personal relationships,
and even in areas of mental and physical health,
success is found in diligence,
hard work, discipline,
and regularity with the details. 
Honest qualities
will always produce the best results.

There may have been a time in your life
when you were surrounded by lots of friends,
and maybe even found yourself
the center of a large group or association.
There is no doubt we often find safety in numbers.
You see now, however,
that circumstances have removed you,
or you removed yourself from such a social domain.
You are facing life
on a more challenging and intimate basis.
If you know any
relationship-oriented people,
you can thank them for that.

Recently, the former head
of a giant corporation (now retired)
was interviewed on TV.  
As a CEO,
he faced constant criticism, scandal, and reproach
for all of his measures and tactics,
and even death threats--
just trying to hang on to his position. 
He now remains at home
chilling out in his crib with his homies
and raising money for research
into illnesses
in women and children,
accomplishing more to help humanity
than he ever could do when he was a big shot.

P.S.: He is a Cancer.

You can be a highly educated person
with fancy degrees espousing all sorts
of moral, legal, and philosophical positions. 
When it comes right down to everyday life,
outworn beliefs and prejudices
could block your honest communication
with people close to you.
When that happens,
all the wisdom goes out the window.
It's really difficult to stay in communication,
but now you see how valuable that can be,
especially if love is at stake.

Even under normal circumstances
Virgos have to be on the lookout for
subtly seductive scoundrels.
Now with Neptune and Chiron i
n your house of relationships,
it's 100 times more important to be vigilant.
But you still have needs.
You don't want to seem selfish or closed off to people,
but there are sharks out there,
who are willing to take your money
and make you think it's love.
It might as well be love
but money is always a factor,
at least right now.

Many Libras are looking around and thinking,
"Hey! Where IS everybody?"
People have been popping out of your life like crazy.
What happened?
The Eclipse at the South Node,
Pluto station,
and Uranus in the solar seventh house.
If the old support system is gone,
you have to rely on yourself more
and find new ways to relate to everybody.
Some of it is natural:
kids grow up, jobs change,
personal goals shift, and people just grow apart.
If you’re not able to communicate honestly,
some relationships have to end bitterly
and even violently.  
We all need each other,
but there has to be clear boundaries
between one person’s life and another,
and Libras often have trouble drawing the right lines.
This is your new goal,
and will make you happier in all relationships.

If you're in the working world and you lose your job,
don't freak out .
It may well be a blessing. 
Saturn in the second house
could certainly give you financial angst,
but don't hang on to a boring gig
just because it's easy.
Oh, you have to work.
It is vitally important for you
to stay relevant and needed.
In the end, financially,
it always works out better
when you go for the impossible,
creative challenge.
In health, nature and a positive spiritual attitude
can do wonders.

Although many brilliant teachers
continue to tell us that the illusion
of romantic love 
is the most fleeting of all,
who among us does not crave
that mind blowing feeling?
When we see a gorgeous stranger
from across the room
smile at us and all our fantasies
go into high gear,
it is hard to resist and be realistic.
We all know what happens after a while,
but we can end up,
if we're lucky,
with a lifelong friendship.
Just think if we could treat a love object
like we treat a friend
(without that ferocious attachment).
We would have happiness.

Capricorns inevitably rise up in the ranks
and get noticed by superiors.
It's not even about ambition
or striving to get to the top.
Ironically, sometimes you would prefer to
just stay with the family,
make pancakes, walk around in your slippers,
and resist leaving the house.
There's something
about your staunch diligence
and skilled professional abilities
that eventually reward you at work
or in your community.
With some sort of honor position,
whether you wanted or not, 
you can never really hide your talent,
even when you try.

When you know you know what is best
for your family or group
or the whole world,
it is so damned difficult
to sit there and not say a word
when you're surrounded by idiots
and morons talking nonsense.
There is a weird mechanism,
that sometimes operates
and screws up your lofty thoughts
on their way to your mouth.
Either that or people are not willing
or ready or able to hear
what you have to say.
The wise person
goes about his or her business
and lets the fools make fools of themselves.

If you are lucky enough
to have someone support you
or float you loans or grants for your projects,
or maybe some other annuity
that is helping you at the moment,
be grateful.
Yes it's a compromise of independence,
but you have to recognize it
and accept good luck while you have it.
Nothing lasts forever you know,
or haven't you heard?
Sometimes money
is not the measure of real success.
In terms of creativity,
you're already rich,
and probably few people can come close to yours.
You have quite a bit of magnetism right now,
sexual and otherwise,
and you should see how artistry
can be more fulfilling
than plain old material wealth.





Talk about a trial!
If only you can take a break or a vacation.
Well, that would be great,
but you are still participating in
and coming through a ritual of separation.
Aries is forever plunging into these depths
when it all seems to being going down the tubes,
but somehow you make it through to rise again,
brighter and unchanged by fire, flood or loss.
Until this stress is ironed out,
keep on loving your kids and
pretending the vacation has already started.


Living in beautiful surroundings
is heaven for a Taurus.
You need to be near enough to nature
to hear the birds twittering,
but far enough away
from police sirens or bug bites.
Although normal family noise
gets on your nerves,
where there is love, there is joy.
In every major relationship
you still need to exercise forbearance and patience.
Of course you would love to be out of the whole thing,
but frankly,
part of you hangs on
and has a hard time letting go.

Have fun juggling people right now.
You’ll be checking out new scene after new scene,
giving everybody a warm kiss on the cheek
and promising to stay in touch.
That’s the deal
when Venus travels
through your third house.
It’s your flair for sociability,
and it’s not exactly cheating.
It reflects the freedom
every Gemini needs to flit around and spread the love.
Oddly enough,
it’s usually not sexual at all.
Sooner or later, however-
uh-oh, the need to finally commit!

Wealth and prosperity:
two things many of us yearn to achieve.
Loving relationships with siblings
and relatives can also keep us sane
while strengthening bonds and ties.
One thing, though.
So many folks think that once they find romance
their troubles will over.
Allowing your heart to take possession
of your head can also to twist you into a pretzel.
Cancers may try to free themselves
from the blessing and curse of attachments,
but in the end,
learning to love without attachment
is the trick of existence.

back to top


Well, you’ve got center stage now.
And don’t even try to say,
"Aw Shucks folks, I don’t need all this attention.”
Be real, you know you love it.
Forget the money.
The only thing to focus on is how to find a healthy,
loving way to separate from the family
and set out on your own new personal journey.
Appreciating the family
you came from takes courage now, at this point,
to say goodbye to a whole period of your life
and begin afresh.
The chick is about to crack the shell from inside.
Good luck.

You must be wondering
what has happened to your bright
and bushy-tailed industrious self.
You used to be able to work so diligently
and steadily at tasks to be done all day and all night.
You were so easily able to keep busy
and remain productive,
and crisply able to solve
all the equations people brought
to you with all their impossible variables.
This sort of slow down (let's not call it a collapse),
and erosion of motivation,
we can blame on Neptune and Chiron opposing your sign.
This month, however, there's much, much more........

Jupiter’s entrance into your twelfth house
in late September will bring you protections
and blessings from sources you cannot see,
people you don’t know,
and forces you may not even believe in.
You will see, however,
that it’s the things
you do not try to control
that bring you the most benefit.
Socially, you should be active now with Venus
remaining so long in your eleventh house.
And you have absolutely learned
that using your assets wisely is a
whole lot more
productive than worrying about money.

back to top


Old and new friends may pop
in your life to support and cheer you on.
Professionally you’re hot–you’ve got fans,
and people in power are actually attracted to you.
Inside, however, some days you feel just barely alive,
even if you are creative and social when you have to be.
Few people are aware
of the secret struggle to go forward
when you have been so deeply hurt and aching inside.
That IS a Scorpio, however.
As indestructible (and sometimes as scary)
as the Terminator.

With such an active ninth house Venus
(going on for months)
you should be excited and chomping at the bit
like a thoroughbred at the starting gate.
You must be eager to make the jump toward,
if not a brand new life,
than at least a new adventure.
You are coming out of the dark and into the light.
The approach is definitely not all fun and games, however.
Frankly, there are still a few old debts
that must be paid
from which there is absolutely no escape.
The ritual requires one thing only:

back to top


"An out-of-towner will make you a great
offer in coming months"
is a prediction bound to come true
with Jupiter approaching your ninth house.
Even though you’re suspicious of any good news,
What’s great is the Venus transit
in your eighth house which for many
Capricorns could turn out to be a pretty sexy moment.
A more practical use of astrology,
is to help you transition from one part of your life to another.
Moving toward a more intimate,
and spiritual existence.
This means surrender.


Even for cool Aquarians,
there has to be joy and romance.
You have to be open to it
with Venus staying so long in your seventh house.
It’s a renewal of vows of sorts,
when you feel deeply toward your significant other,
or even dating someone
you might think is the Big One.
Whether these passions last depends
on a host of other factors.
For one thing,
you’ve still got responsibilities–big time.
You can be about to leave a professional phase
of your life that has gone on a bit too long.
Could be time to start living again.


Despite any gooey mush
you have to slosh just to get through a day,
you are still able to put passion into your work.
In fact, if you have been diligent,
studious and morally committed
to learning art or cosmic pursuits,
you will be moving into a completely different,
more professional circle of associations.
And you will be considered a major player.
A word of caution:
it’s often during the second semester senior year,
when some students clutch,
get pregnant and quit school.
Finish the course.
