Strawberry Full Moon Star Day!
By Dikki-Jo Mullen
The last lunation before July’s eclipse pattern begins will be the Full Moon on Monday (Moon-Day), June17, 2019 at 25 degrees Sagittarius 53′. It will affect the flow of daily events until the New Moon on July2. Positioned near the Galactic Center (at about 26 to 27 degrees Sagittarius), this Full Moon leads many to feel that this points to a high energy portal opening. The Galactic Center is at the center of the Milky Way. It has been accorded significance by astrologers since being discovered by the great astrologer William Lilly in the 1600’s. Lilly also determined void of course moons and used horary astrology to predict the Great Fire of London and the ill fate of King Charles I.

Of A Florida Angel or Surfer Ghost

By Dikki-Jo Mullen

Usually the bright days of late spring in small Florida beach towns don’t immediately suggest visits from friendly ghosts and angels. Palm trees silhouetted against an oceanside sunset aren’t otherworldly. Usually. But things aren’t always as they seem. The still, damp heat can be hypnotic. When punctuated by frequent rain showers it can foster glimpses of other dimensions, revealing the various specters and entities that exist in the world along side of us. Actually credible accounts of spirits and supernatural events are quite common between May Day and summer’s end in the Sunshine State. Paranormal encounters can be fueled by the shimmering veil of still sunshine and growing heat.
Here are some thoughts to ponder about such a visitation which took place in unincorporated Indialantic, a barrier island community off the coast of Brevard County. My beloved and beautiful mother Elayne lived there for many years, tending to her exceptional tropical garden while producing her arts and crafts to sell locally. She was content to live alone, remaining very spry and active into her early 80’s. Then, as is oftentimes the situation with many people, everything began to change. It was shortly after her 83rd birthday in January, 2002 when Elayne started to grow more frail. I was driving the 70 miles or so from my home and work in Orlando to check on her and bring her food several times each week by the time Memorial Day came. On one visit I was horrified to notice large purplish bruises on her arms. Elayne said that she had fallen near her mail box. This would seem to be just a sad and all too common account of an elderly person becoming less independent and in need of added assistance except for one detail.
Elayne started talking about her guardian angel rescuing her. She was quite a practical person, almost an agnostic, and not given to religious observances. Mentally she was as astute and clever as ever. Elayne said that she was struggling on the ground, having trouble getting up, when her angel came. He wore blue jeans and a T-shirt and arrived driving a large black pickup truck which screeched to a halt by her mail box. He picked her up, she said, and carried her to her door. After making sure that she wasn’t seriously hurt, he and the truck disappeared. She said he seemed to know her, but she couldn’t speak. This phenomena is commonly reported by those who encounter angelic beings. They seem to not need or be interested in chatter. Elayne usually had plenty to say, so this silence was unlike her.
The house is on a dead end street. The few vehicles that pass by tend to be recognized by the residents, who mostly know each other. Elayne was usually outdoors and always curious about who was who. She even had been accused of being a nosey neighbor. She had never seen either the black truck or the man, whom she described as rather good looking, before. We asked around. None of the neighbors had ever seen him before or since the incident either. From the description I wondered if the entity was the ghost of a young surfer who had drowned years earlier. The unfortunate surfer’s truck had been found parked by the beach across the oceanfront HWY, A1A, just a stone’s throw from Atlantic Avenue, Elayne’s little street.
Elayne insisted that he was her handsome guardian angel and had been there for her. She added that since she was OK, he must have just driven his shiny black truck back to heaven!

The Great Jupiter Perigee of June, 2019
By Dikki-Jo Mullen

It’s all over the news during this month of June, 2019 illustrated with incredible pictures. Jupiter is making its closest passage to the Earth with its moons in tow. The biggest of the planets in our solar system is also in Sagittarius, its own ruling sign. Visible with binoculars. Even using just a small telescope or just a star gazer looking up, this view will be memorable. The placement will be exact on Monday, June 10, 2019 at 11:28 am EDT, but will be influential and visible for several days before and after at 19 degrees Sagittarius 28’.
So what does this unusual pattern promise? First of all the Sabian Symbol for this degree is “Men cutting through ice”. This suggests reorganizing the forces of nature for human convenience. Global warming and climate change? The fixed star Sabik is only two degrees away. This pale yellow star is in the constellation Ophiucus. With Jupiter Sabik accents financial concerns, Church law, tension with in-laws, and the welfare of animals.
Consulting “The Rulership Book” by Rex Bills for further insight, here are some keywords for Jupiter and Sagittarius . Marches, promotions, ambassadors, commemorations, fellowship, a gamble, explorations, exaggerations, self-indulgence, growth, wins, trades, ceremonies, harps, wisdom, long journeys, literature, imports and sports.
This is the second decanate of Sagittarius, co-ruled by Jupiter and Mars, so the concerns about fire and the hot weather can continue and there can be some emphasis on the military. The mood is competitive overall with a desire to expand.
