Astrological Musings

The Reclassification of Pluto

plutoThe International Astronomical Union met in 2006 to discuss reclassifying our solar system, and as a result Pluto was deemed to be a dwarf planet, the former asteroid Ceres was promoted to planetary status, and the newest planet, formerly named UB313, was named Eris after the goddess of discord. Because the astrological Pluto deals with the transformation that comes from looking death in the eye and annhilation of the personal ego, it stands to reason that the reclassification of Pluto could open a door to how this process operates.

The last “planet” to be discovered in our lifetime was the comet/planetoid Chiron, and it took some time for its astrological signficance to become known. Through the magic of synchronicity, the name of the planet itself reveals the god whose energy manifests through that planet.

You can read more about Ceres here.

Pluto’s discovery in 1930 brought with it the introduction of the atomic bomb and the fear of ultimate annhilation, the ultimate power. In these days of terrorism when a single individual with a toiletry bottle can potentially wipe out thousands of people, our concept of power is changing. In centuries past, whichever country had the biggest guns had the most power. When the US was the only nation with the bomb we were the only superpower. When Russia developed the bomb, they were the other superpower. At this time nine nations have nuclear weapons, with several more to attain that status soon (including Iran). The whole concept of power, as embodied in the archetype of Pluto, is changing and this will become very clear in the 2010-2013 square of Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn. The power of Pluto hasn’t lessened one iota, but […]

The Harmonic Concordance alignment

I am migrating some  articles from the old site so that they can be indexed here.  The Grand Sextile of 2013 will give a repeat performance on August 31st, this time with the Moon in Cancer.  This Grand Sextile is a rare occurrence, and the last time it occurred was during the Harmonic Concordance of 2003.  This is the Tenth Anniversary of the Harmonic Concordance

You may have heard of a unique alignment involving eight “planets” that occured the evening of the lunar eclipse on November 8 2003 at 8:13 pm. The components of this alignment are these (in astrological symbolism the Sun and Moon are considered as planets, and I am including Chiron as well which I have seen to be a strong component of any birthchart):

Harmonic

A full moon with a total lunar eclipse.

Two interlocking grand trines (120 degree angles) in water and earth signs.

Two oppositions (180 degree angle).

A hexagon of sextiles (60 degree angles) forming a Grand Sextile.

Two “T-square” formations (an opposition where both planets are square (90 degrees) to another).

 

In addition, Uranus, technically not part of the alignment formation, is on this day reversing its retrograde direction and traveling direct for the first time since June.

This formation was discovered on August 28 1998 by John Mirehiel using a software program called Astrolog and looks very much like this diagram. He named this alignment the “Harmonic Concordance.” You can see the two intersecting triangles in blue, the three interior oppositions in red, and the hegaxon in green, all bordered by the circular ecliptic of the zodiac. This is an exceptionally unusual formation that is filled with symbolism of the mystery schools. The interlocking grand trines that form the six-pointed star represents the descension […]

Pars Fortuna, Aspects and Energy

FortunaA reader wrote me about the significance of the multitude of Kites, Mystic Rectangles and Yods in her chart but upon closer examination, many of these aspects involve the Part of Fortune and the Nodes of the Moon rather than planets or luminaries. Which brought up an interesting point of discussion: what really do aspects describe, and what points should be considered?

In the birthchart, the Sun represents our essential Self, the Moon our emotional nature, and the seven traditional planets each represent an aspect of our personality. The outer planets each show a mode of transformation and soul growth. Aspects, or geometric angles, between the inner and outer planets show the way the different parts of our personality work together and how they are used for the evolution of our soul. The qualities (elements and whether fixed, cardinal or mutable) of the signs that the planets fall in show the energy that is at work in each of the planets, and the aspects show the way those energies harmonize or create conflict.

Major aspects including the T-square, Grand Cross or Grand Trine describe the way the energies of the planets involve relate to each other. These create energy imbalances (squares and crosses) or loops (trines) that affect our everyday lives. Yods, Kites and Mystic Rectangles are combinations of harmonious aspects with challenging ones that describe again the way the energies of the planets alternatively conflict and harmonize to bring about personal growth.

There are many points that astrologers work with that may or may not be considered in these aspects: Chiron, other asteroids, the Moon’s nodes, fixed stars, etc. Certainly the more points are included the more aspects will be found in the chart. But do these […]

Aquarius Full Moon, August 20 2013

Art Print from Society 6

This is the second Aquarius Full Moon this year, giving us an extra opportunity to explore the brilliance of the higher mind.

Full Moons are times of heightened emotionality, but Aquarius is the sign that is the least comfortable in the realm of feeling. Aquarius is the inventor, the scientist – there can be a disdain for what is perceived as the drama of emotions which makes Aquarius Full Moons particularly interesting.  When the Moon is in Aquarius we seek to elevate our personal feelings and gain greater understanding and perspective – to see the Universe as a whole rather than merely as a sum of its parts.

The Aquarius Moon opposes the Leo Sun in a polarity dance between the solar expression of Self and the more transpersonal and universalist Aquarius influence. Aquarius is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus – In Aquarius we erupt out of the realm of form (Saturn) into something more magical and transformational (Uranus) in order to bear witness to a constantly expanding universe.  All Full Moons require balance and integration, and at the Aquarius Full Moon we can be torn between our small Self and our higher Self – a push and pull that leads ultimately to a harmonious synthesis that encourages the highest expression of our soul in the earthly plane.

This is the second Aquarius Full Moon this year, so we have already begun the process of revolutionizing our consciousness. Now we can complete it. A conjunction of the Sun to Mercury helps us to assimilate and communicate our experiences, and an exact trine from Jupiter to Chiron opens us to greater healing wisdom.

Jupiter is also engaged in a challenging square to Uranus which culminates the day […]

Visioncrafting: A Self-Guided Workbook – now on sale!

VisioncraftingI just noticed that Amazon has put my Visioncrafting book on sale, so you can now purchase it for only $9.33 plus shipping.  This is a great price (it was $18) so I hope that you will take a look and consider ordering it.

I designed this workbook to follow the formats of the workshops that I used to lead, and it’s designed for you to follow at your own pace.  Here are a couple of reviews from Amazon which will describe the book more objectively than I can!

For people who believe in the law of attraction and visualization this book is a wonderful tool for manifesting your goals. Whether you are a beginner in goal setting or you’ve had some experience with it (as I have), Lynn’s step by step workbook will take you through the process of creating a vision plan for achievment. I purchased the book last October and began the Visioncrafting process. By January one of my goals began to take shape. I believe Lynn’s method takes a different approach from some other LOA guides. Her Visioncrafting process is very practical as far as taking you through the process of creating and prioritizing your goals. The Visioncrafting process will help you establish a very clear, tangible vision. In my experience, the key to manifesting your goals is directly related to having a clear, workable, positive vision. Visioncrafting is the guide that will help you bring your goals to fruition.

Lynn has done a wonderful job of laying out a plan to take responsibility and help yourself be the best and have the best. The exercises are clear and help bring out the core issues. Every minute I spent working on the […]
