Thoughts on the upcoming Uranus/Pluto square

The big “Cardinal Drama” of planetary configurations this summer included the beginning of the challenging square of Uranus to Pluto – a cycle that will build over the next few years and culminate in 2013.   Uranus and Pluto combine in explosive ways that challenge and overturn (Uranus) the existing power structures and destroy (Pluto) any way of life that is no longer working.  Uranus is the planet of modernism – Pluto is in Capricorn, the sign of conservative values and social mores.  Uranus tiptoed into Aries, the sign of the warrior, this summer and has now retreated into Pisces where it will stay until next spring.

Uranus in Aries represents the war (Aries) for individuality (Uranus).  Under this influence we are seeing a breakdown (square to Pluto) of  pride of nation or a sense of belonging to a government.  This is partly due to a massive increase in migration that took place while Pluto was in Sagittarius (the sign of travel and movement through diverse cultures), resulting in an increasingly diverse population in virtually every country of the world.  Battles for national identity (Pluto in Capricorn) are taking place in Europe, where children African and Asian immigrants are struggling to take their places in countries that have become home, but where they are not really accepted.

This increasing diversity is likely to give rise to a continuing struggle between various groups of humans that don’t understand each other and live by different values.  We are seeing this more and more in the United States, a country whose diversity gave it the description “the melting pot.”  But this is also becoming more and more evident all over the world.  European countries, with an increasing number of Muslim immigrants, […]

The Astrology of Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck birthchartGlenn Beck has emerged from a minor and cartoonish character of conservative and religious unrest to become a force to be reckoned with in the Republican party. Beginning with the Tea Party rallies last year, he has built a movement that culminated this weekend with a crowd of 100,000 people in Washington at the Lincoln Memorial, to restore America’s honor and return it to the ideals on which the United States was founded.

Beck talks a lot about the Bible in his speeches – about Moses and Jesus and the founding fathers. (Beck, a Mormon, seems fascinated with the idea that  the book of Deuteronomy in the Bible (in which the Ten Commandments are found) was  instrumental to the development of the ideals of the Founding Fathers to which we must return. Much of this is mythology, but it’s worth noting that Deuteronomy is one of the most violent and vindictive books in the Bible, which is no small feat. There are many threats against the enemies of the Israelites, but also against the Israelites themselves who disobey the Commandments. It’s safe to say that religion is crucial to Beck’s world view, and a return of America to the conservative religious values of the mid-twentieth century.

Glenn Beck (born February 10, 1964, Everett WA, time unknown) was born when the Sun was in Aquarius, the sign of the rational thinker with radical new ideas. But his Sun is in a triple conjunction that includes Saturn and Mars as well. The Mars influence energizes him but also provides frustration – it can be difficult to focus one’s energies. The Saturn influences puts the brakes on and creates blocks and disappointments, and also suggests a deep loneliness […]

Mercury Rx at Astrological Musings

This morning I wrote a long and well-thought out post about the 20-something generation.  Unfortunately, I made a big and stupid error by tagging that generation as the Pluto in Sagittarius generation.  Thankfully, I have brilliant readers who emailed me right away and called this to my attention.

Many of you know that in the best of times I am prone to typos and sloppy errors.  I like to blame this on my Gemini ascendant which is all too ready to move on to the next project.  But when Mercury is retrograde we tend to pay less attention to details which is why we often end up making big errors.

I’m just glad I have sharp readers who catch my mistakes before my articles get circulated in the wider world and cause me major embarrassment!  Especially with Neptune transiting my Midheaven and confusing my image in the outer world. 🙂

NYT asks: “What is it about 20-somethings?”

Answer:  They have Pluto in Sagittarius.

This question pops up everywhere, underlying concerns about “failure to launch” and “boomerang kids.” Two new sitcoms feature grown children moving back in with their parents — “$#*! My Dad Says,” starring William Shatner as a divorced curmudgeon whose 20-something son can’t make it on his own as a blogger, and “Big Lake,” in which a financial whiz kid loses his Wall Street job and moves back home to rural Pennsylvania. A cover of The New Yorker last spring picked up on the zeitgeist: a young man hangs up his new Ph.D. in his boyhood bedroom, the cardboard box at his feet signaling his plans to move back home now that he’s officially overqualified for a job. In the doorway stand his parents, their expressions a mix of resignation, worry, annoyance and perplexity: how exactly did this happen?

It’s happening all over, in all sorts of families, not just young people moving back home but also young people taking longer to reach adulthood overall. It’s a development that predates the current economic doldrums, and no one knows yet what the impact will be — on the prospects of the young men and women; on the parents on whom so many of them depend; on society, built on the expectation of an orderly progression in which kids finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and eventually retire to live on pensions supported by the next crop of kids who finish school, grow up, start careers, make a family and on and on. The traditional cycle seems to have gone off course, as young people remain un tethered to romantic partners or to permanent homes, going back to school for lack of better […]

What’s the opposite of Supermoon?

moon at apogeeAstrologer coined the term Supermoon to describe the Full Moon at perigee when it’s closest to the Earth.   Last night’s Full Moon was at apogee and at its furthest from Earth, so the Moon appeared about 15% smaller than usual.

The influence of the Moon does appear to be more intense when it is at perigee and therefore appears larger, so perhaps last night’s Minimoon did not pack as powerful a punch.
