Report on the Full Moon Summer Solstice

full moon summer solstice

While the Summer Solstice is usually celebrated on June 21st, the astrological Solstice occurs when the Sun enters Cancer, and that occurred this year on June 20th.  This Summer Solstice coincided with the Full Moon, something we hadn’t seen apparently since 1948 (according to news reports).

The Sun is strongest in a sign when it first enters that sign, and when the Sun enters one of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) it is even stronger.  The cardinal signs initiate a new season – a new phase in human life – and the energies in the Solstice and Equinox charts are often used to forecast the weather for the season.

The Full Moon occurred at the 29th degree of Sagittarius – the so-called “anaretic” degree.  The 29th degree, sometimes called the “critical” or “anaretic” degree, is associated with the endings of cycles and new beginnings.  The word “anaretic” derives from “anareta,” which in medieval astrology signified the planet of death in the natal horoscope.  This is likely what has given the 29th degree such a bad rap in traditional astrology, although endings are actually the harbinger of new beginnings and not to be feared.

So we have the conclusion of a lunar cycle occurring at the same time as a beginning of a solar cycle – a confluence of events that signifies a closing of one door and an opening of another.  The Sagittarius Full Moon seeks expansive dreams and increased wisdom, and the Summer Solstice and Cancerian Sun brings fertility and water to nurture the soil and plants.

However, with Saturn (rules and boundaries) in Sagittarius (expansion and faith) we have to continue to set limits and be realistic (Saturn) and careful […]

Pluto and the US Chart – An Eruption of Darkness

immigrantsIn the kind of transformational astrology that I practice, Pluto’s rule in the astrological pantheon is to take us deep into the Underworld and reveal all of the dark and nasty corners of the psyche in order to illuminate that darkness and therefore aid in the process of personal evolution. Pluto is the Lord of Death – he causes obsession and has the potential to bring out the worst in us but also the best in us.  Pluto’s placement in the chart shows where we can be undone by our own psychology, but also where we can be transformed and reborn.

In the astrological chart for the United States (I use the “Sibley” chart and here’s why), Pluto is in the second house of money.  To quote myself, which always seems a little weird:

Pluto, as the ruler of the underworld, represents the shadow side of the psyche, whether in an individual chart or the chart of a nation.  With Pluto in the second house of money and finance, the American shadow is a dirty little secret – an obsession (Pluto) with the power that money can provide (second house).  The persona of the country is the sunny Jupiterian/Sagittarian nature of optimism and faith that everything will turn out fine.  But the Plutonian shadow of greed hides in the darkness.

Pluto first opposed the Cancerian Sun of the United States back in 2014 – at the time it was locked in a stressful aspect to Uranus, planet of revolution and we started to see a steep increase in the number of shootings of unarmed young black citizens culminating in riots over the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.  Racism is one of the dark spots in American history […]

Happy birthday Donald, and the 2016 Trump Update

Already I have received many emails begging me for more negative information on Trump’s planetary cycles.  Trust me folks, I have looked for it.  I just report the astrological news, I don’t make it!!  I’m sure there will be an active discussion in the comments so check it out.

Many of you have written to me asking for an update on the chart of Donald Trump.  Last year I published this profile, and now he is the presumptive Republican nominee for the US presidency.

When I write a profile of people in the news I attempt to put aside my personal feelings and let the astrology speak for itself.  There are a number of different factors going on for The Donald in the progressed chart this year that suggest we may see a more serious candidate. (The progressed chart shows the evolution of the personality through time; it doesn’t change our basic personality but shows the ways in which we evolve and change and shows opportunities and challenges that may be presented to us at various times of our lives.)

The first is the transition that I wrote about last year of his progressed Midheaven, revealing the evolution of his career path, which just moved from emotional Cancer into Leo in March of this year.  This shift coincided with his entering the presidential race.

In August of 2016 Trump’s progressed Sun will move from self-absorbed Leo into Virgo, causing a shift into more of a Virgoan concern for details and service.  This transition has the potential to change the face of Trump’s candidacy which up until now has been primarily bombast and rhetoric.  Please note that these movements in the chart do not fundamentally change the personality but merely […]
