Personalized Lunation Calendar

Sample 2017

In this 80+ page astrology calendar -- which is hand personalized for you -- you will find the sign degree for every new moon and full moon, and those that are eclipses.

You will also find the dates of Mercury going retrograde and then going direct again.

For each month, you will also be shown the crystal associated with the sign degree of every new moon, full moon and mercury retrograde dates.

The new and full moons will fall into a unique house of your natal chart, whereas the same new or full moon will fall into a different house of someone else's chart.

This also applies to the degree that Mercury goes retrograde (and later direct), which will fall into a certain house in your natal chart.

The dates for other planetary retrogrades are listed (but the houses are not shown for these).

Solar transits through your houses are also shown.

New moons are times for initiation and setting new intentions.

Full moons are time for completions and culmination of goals, as well as letting go of things in our lives.

When mercury goes retrograde, it is a time to take it slow, be careful, and relax.

The Wheel of the Year

While not all determined by astrology, these 8 important days of the year are listed.

Mercury Retrograde August/September in Virgo


I decided to make a crystal grid for this approaching Mercury Retrograde start at 29 degrees of Virgo, which will be happening on August 31st.  I got a piece of Heulandite (which is mixed with Apophyllite in this specimen).

Here's a grid for Mercury going direct. (I don't have a pink banded agate yet).

Mercury Retrograde Aug 31st 29 Virgo, conjunct Asellus Tertius in Bootes



Birthdays - September 20 – 22
Key Word - Discovery

Crystal - Heulandite
Attributes - Aids your mobility. Helps you give up your negative emotions. Heulandite eases the way when you need to change ingrained habits. It fortifies the kidneys and liver, promotes good blood flow; increases your mobility, eases stiff joints, discs, knee and feet.
Message - Study, knowledge, belief, awareness, enlightenment.
Focus - Your patient nature and attention to detail provide access to insight, motivating personal growth.
Affirmation - I can learn about spiritual power and deep wisdom.
Sep 23rd, 2016: Mercury Direct at 15 degrees of Virgo



Birthdays - September 6 – 8
Key Word - Gracefulness

Crystal - Pink Banded Agate
Attributes - This stone promotes incentive and compassion. Gives steadfastness, protection and safety. Helps to actively deal with difficult assignments. This stone is for inflammation; activates absorption of nutrients in the intestine and also stimulates metabolism and blood circulation.
Message - Sophistication, elegance, gentle and serene moments.
Focus - Exuding beauty and charm, you radiate goodwill and considerateness.
Affirmation - I cherish the elegance and beauty in all things.
Mercury in Virgo
"Mercury rules the house of Virgo. Hence its effect would be more significant than when in the other signs. Being a mutable sign, Virgos are particularly found to be at loggerheads with the other mutable signs like Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces during this time. People seem to be going through a more introspective period. It would be a dramatic period with emotions and impulses holding the sway. Generally stressful period for the natives of this sign."

Earth: What are the tangible results of my life?

Mercury Retrograde motion

Remember that Mercury Retrograde gets a very bad rap, so use the time in a positive manner by doing all the things that start with "re"  
~ relax, refresh, revisit, revise, revision, rehash, rethink.

Look up the House that Mercury is going to Retrograde

my chart: Mercury will retrograde within my 9th house

My Example

"Mercury Stationary Retrograde in 9th House Sometimes painting life with a broad brush can cause you to miss messy details that then slow you down. The next three weeks are a great time to pause and make sure the rug rats and ankle biters are not in a position to sidetrack your whole operation because you ignored them. It’s time to give the small things their due so they can serve your larger purpose. By doing so, you may discover a better version of your own vision as well. Don’t hurry, you’ve got time, and you may find that in the end tapping resources you had ignored will trigger a rising tide that floats all boats, not just your own.
Mercury Stationary Direct in 9th House After a few weeks of uncertainty about the big picture, your panorama on life returns somewhat amended. False starts have led to a focus on correcting details that have distracted from the overall plan, but these are being put behind you so you can return to your former path with a steadier hand on the helm. What you are putting together now will shortly have a direct effect on what people will be saying about you and your career plans, so don’t toss off your ideas lightly. You will have the opportunity to impact your surroundings more than you think if you choose to, but you must make the choice."

See also:
"Mercury transiting retrograde in the 9th house Re-examine what you believe about the world as Mercury backs up in the 9th house. Your beliefs create what you experience. It’s time to consider the future. What you do now effects the outcome. What’s your overall philosophy to life? Are you really living it? This house is also connected to morals and ethics. During this transit you may be called upon to re-assess what the truth really means. This is a good time to re-sit exams previously failed or to go back into education. Use this time to revise, to edit writing, to re-write and proof read your work. Explore books that make you think differently about the world. You may have a sense that you have lost the big picture somewhere along the line. Take some time to re-visualise where you want to be. You may find yourself needing to revisit a place. Generally however, travel plans at this time need to be triple checked. Be prepared for delays, cancelled flights and roadblocks. Mercury would like you to see where you are so you can be clearer about where you want to go. Sometimes we just have to stand still. The 9th house is also associated with the concept of faith. Your faith in yourself or in a higher being may be called into question. Faith adhered to without question can bind you. Keep asking the big questions! Keywords – revisit, re-examine, retrain"

Look up yours here! 

"Mercury Retrograde in the 9th house: This retrograde can affect your travel. Travel on the retrograde is actually okay just don’t expect your luggage to make the trip with you. This time there is a need to pay attention to school if you are involved in tests, scholarships or writing papers. Make copies of everything before submitting. This is also a time to put some attention to legal matters that may be pending. Life may seem a bit overwhelming but try to take it one step at a time. It is important during this time that you take some quiet time and list things that are undone so nothing comes a great shock."

"Thanks Jane for the really quick result!  A lot of very helpful information here, which will take me some time to digest.  I like the way that both Taurus and Scorpio seem a little in sync — Scorpio's classic vintage (which I love) and Taurus's classic luxury would both seem to work for a modified type 4 — a yin type 4 if you will.  I must say again that I appreciate all you do.  You are such a resource for those of us who like the idea of a type but can't completely fit into one system."
