The US election debate heats up as Mars opposes Jupiter

Mars opposite JupiterMars is the planet of aggression and warfare, and it is currently traveling through Sagittarius, the sign of ideology, theology, belief systems, confidence, and all things expansive.  So it’s no wonder that the political rhetoric in the US is inflating to ridiculous proportions.

Over the past week this inflation has grown even more ridiculous over the past week since Mars has been approaching an opposition (180 degree aspect) to Jupiter.  This aspect culminates on the 28th (Sunday) and is embedded in the chart for the Taurus Full Moon which I’ll be discussing tomorrow.

This aspect affects not only politics, but all areas of our lives.  Righteous anger will be everywhere over the next few days, along with frustration when we don’t get our way.

Jupiter shows where we desire to be god, and when Jupiter opposes Mars, especially when Mars is in Jupiter’s own sign.  There is a great deal of positive energy available to us now because Mars activates the potential for Jupiter to expand and create abundance and prosperous feelings.  But in its role as God of War, Mars can also activate the aggressive side of our natures and encourage strife and conflict (Mars) for the sake of our beliefs (Jupiter).  This isn’t always a bad thing, but under this influence it can get out of hand if not approached with conscious sensitivity.

This aspect from Mars to Jupiter can be somewhat strident and obnoxious. However, it can also give us the courage that we need to push through a barrier that would otherwise be difficult even though the aspect lasts for only a couple of days. If we approach this time (the 26th through the 29th) with awareness, this can be a lucky time in which doors […]

The astrology of 2012

A portion of this article was posted in 2011. 

The Mayan calendar is usually said to end on December 21, 2012, but that date seems to have little relevance to the actual Mayan calendar, although it has come to bear great mythological significance for the current age.  According to that great source of modern wisdom :

In 1975, the ending of b’ak’tun 13 became the subject of speculation by several  authors, who asserted it would correspond with a global “transformation of consciousness”. In Mexico Mystique: The Coming Sixth Age of Consciousness,  tied Coe’s original date of December 24, 2011, to astrology and the prophecies of the , while both  (in The Transformative Vision) and  (in The Invisible Landscape) discussed the significance of the year 2012, but not a specific day. It was only in 1983, with the publication of ‘s revised table of date correlations in the 4th edition of Morley’s The Ancient Maya, that each became convinced that December 21, 2012, had significant meaning. By 1987, the year in which he organized the  event, Arguelles was using the date December 21, 2012 in The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology. He claimed that on August 13, 3113 BC the Earth began a passage through a “galactic synchronization beam” that emanated from the , that it would pass through this beam during a period of 5200 tuns (Maya cycles of 360-days each), and that this beam would result in “total synchronization” and “galactic entrainment” of individuals “plugged into the Earth’s electromagnetic battery” by 13.0.0.0.0 (December 21, […]

The astrology of Lance Armstrong’s demise

Lance Armstrong astrologyLance Armstrong was an incredible success story.  He was the second American ever to win the Tour de France bicycle race.  His first win was July 25, 1999 just three years after he recovered from testicular cancer which had spread to his lungs, abdomen and brain.  He won again the following year, and then again for each consecutive year until he retired in 2005.

A Virgo, Armstrong (born 9/18/1971, time unknown, Plano Texas) has four planets in that sign including Mercury and his Moon.  Virgo is concerned with matters of health and healing, and can be meticulous about nutrition and exercise. Lance Armstrong is known in the sporting world for his diligence in training and technique, but rumors of doping and steroid use have dogged him throughout his career.

Pluto conjoins his Sun so the personal transformation that Pluto brings is crucial for Armstrong’s personal development.  Pluto/Sun combinations can bring intense passion combined with an obsession with power dynamics, and often people with these placements have intense experiences which force them to surrender something so that they can become transformed.   But Jupiter, ruling expansion and optimism, is in Sagittarius in his chart which tends to denote an individual whose confidence knows no bounds.  Jupiter conjoins Neptune in his chart, enhancing creativity but also offering the potential for self-delusion.

Armstrong is in the middle of what we call the “midlife crisis transit series.”  Transiting Neptune has begun to form a square to natal Neptune, and with it that overconfident Sagittarian Jupiter.  With Saturn entering Scorpio and pressuring that natal Jupiter/Neptune conjunction to do the responsible thing, the guillotine fell on Armstrong’s career when he was dropped from his lucrative endorsement contracts and resigned as head of the […]

An Autumn Leaf

Yesterday, I was the mist of the waterfall
Tomorrow I will be a raindrop
Racing toward my destiny
But today
I am the cloud
Floating amidst the mountain peaks
The hangman’s noose is empty
For I am life
I cannot be destroyed
The winds of adversity
Buffet and mould me
Yet I float free
I am freedom
The bird that flits happily
Among olive trees
I am the wind of the evergreen glades
I am boundless
Without secrets, without fear
I am love
The red ferns on mossy grass
I am Now
This hour, eternity
I know no beginning or end

I cannot be destroyed.

Two noted astrologers teach in China

western astrology in ChinaOur friends Steven Forrest and Jeff Jawer along with Noel Tyl have been teaching workshops in China as part of an effort to bring western astrology to that country which has its own brand of astrology that is over 5,000 years old. I discovered this from  giving the workshops some good press.  However, it does illustrate some confusion over the type of astrology practiced by western astrologers such as Steven and Jeff and this:

 PeiEn is a full-time astrologer who is also familiar with the teachings of Forrest, havingheard him lecture when he came to China in 2010. Most of her clients come to her after finding out about her online or through word-of-mouth feedback from satisfied customers. Their needs include requiring a reading ofthe future, finding out more about themselves or seeking help to overcome personalanguish. Pei then reads their future using an astrolabe, the predecessor of the sextant used to find the altitude of stars, and offers her advice.

Astrolabes are amazing instruments, but I don’t know of too many western astrologers that use them. The article also indicates a fair amount of suspicion.  One woman is quoted as saying “Who knows where these ‘meanings” attached to stars come from? If it’s not from statistics, then where does it come from?”  Which will open up a whole other door of discussion, but as most of us who follow astrology know, human behavior simply cannot be broken down into statistical variants. A claim that “the astrological profession is strictly regulated” in the US and Europe sent me off into a peal of laughter.  Still, over the past ten years astrologers HAVE been able to educate the Western public about what astrology is and isn’t.  China is probably a bit behind the curve. To read more about Western offerings in China,  and use the translator.
