by lokasiwisata.info Today’s Full Moon has the potential to bring more than the usual fireworks for Independence Day here in the US. The Moon is in the pragmatic and practical sign of Capricorn where planning and a solid approach to the matters at hand is required. However, the Moon has just passed through the gates of Pluto which has intensified and magnified its energy, which means that the Moon has also faced off in a challenging aspect (square) to Uranus, inspiring resistance and rebellion. Meanwhile Mars has just entered the sign of Libra. When the planet of war moves through the sign of peace the aggressive instincts of Mars are not easily expressed. There is an outward desire for harmony that belies the inner turmoil that will eventually require an outlet. This conflicted Mars is preparing to get involved in the greater battle between Uranus and Pluto over the next two weeks and will serve as the trigger for any areas of life where change is needed. Capricorn is all about Doing What It Takes to Get Things Done. However, in the Full Moon the Capricorn Moon opposes the Cancerian Sun which takes us deeper into the realm of feelings and emotions, a realm which Capricorn would just as soon forget. All Full Moons require that we balance energies that are in polarity with each other since the Sun is always in a sign that is opposite the sign the Moon falls in. Here we are balancing the inner world with the outer – our home life with our work life, our feelings with what we know must be done. In any Full Moon, the lunar light of emotions and feelings outshines […]
This is part II of a series, you can catch up on part I here.
There are many different astrological techniques for prediction. Some are classical, and others are more creative. When I am looking at relationship charts I will nearly always compare the progressed charts of the two individuals to see what is happening in the relationship at that time. In an election, a people chooses its governing body and the relationship between them is quite important.
Some of this post may seem excessively geeky to many of my readers and for this I apologize. When I progress all three charts for election day and compare the candidate charts to the progressed US chart, I get some interesting results. Obama’s Chiron opposes his Venus, and this wound (Chiron) to his partnerships (Venus) falls right on the US ascendant/descendant axis of self vs. other. Obama’s progressed Mars falls opposite Venus in the US progressed chart, suggesting a separation of some kind. The nodes in the two charts are inconjunct each other, suggesting an inability to come together.
Comparing Mitt Romney’s progressed chart to the US progressed chart shows something astonishing: His Sun falls right on the US Midheaven (head of government) within 16 minutes of arc. Without any other calculation, this would be a very telling factor. But other factors in the chart are not so clear. His progressed Moon/Midheaven conjunction forms a square alignment to US progressed Jupiter which suggests to me that he may be overly confident (Jupiter). His progressed Ascendant will tightly oppose the US Pluto which could suggest a crisis of some sort. And Chiron in his progressed chart tightly conjoins Saturn, indicating a painful event for all involved.
It’s also important […]

Meanwhile, here is the introduction to get you started:
As July begins, Venus has just turned direct and is moving forward again after her short retrograde period. The Transit of Venus is behind us, as is the first exact formation of the Uranus/Pluto square which actually began last year and will continue through 2014.
You can read more about the square formation between Uranus and Pluto here if this is new to you. The two planets are still only 17 minutes of arc from the exact alignment, and it will be the middle of July before they really begin to separate. So throughout the first few weeks of July expect for this conflict between the structures of the past (Pluto in Capricorn) and the new ideas and patterns of individual self-expression (Uranus in Aries) to continue, especially between the 11th and 22nd or so when Mars enters the picture and acts as a trigger for the unexpected to occur. More on that in the planetary details below.
The Uranus/Pluto dynamic is intensified by the fact that Uranus will turn retrograde mid-month so its motion has slowed to a standstill in preparation for the change of direction. When a planet changes direction its influence becomes more insistent, and with Uranus we are dealing with energies of surprise, radical changes and a journey into the unknown. Pluto is also retrograde now so both of these behemoths are urging us to look back over our lives to see where we have stalled the progress of our own evolution – where do we need to […]
At the recent United Astrology Conference (to which I was invited to speak, but was unable to attend due to family health emergencies), a panel of esteemed astrologers discussed their predictions regarding the outcome of the 2012 presidential elections.
You can watch the entire presentation and (thanks Chris Brennan for the links). I was interested to see what techniques these astrologers used. Most of the astrologers on the panel represent one of the more traditional branches of astrology, with Gary Christian practicing Uranian astrology which is a sort of fringe element of astrology that goes back to the early 20th century.
- Gary Christian, representing Uranian astrology and Cosmobiology.
- Edith Hathaway, representing Indian or Vedic astrology.
- Nina Gryphon, representing Medieval and Renaissance astrology.
- Claude Weiss, representing Modern western astrology.
- Chris Brennan, representing Hellenistic astrology, on behalf of the writers of the Political Astrology Blog.
Gary Christian used the date for the oath of office and the solstice chart for the Winter Solstice 2012 and inserted the charts for both candidates into these charts.
Edith Hathaway used a variety of Vedic techniques as well as the strength of the ascendant lord (ruler) and the 10th house lord (ruler). She is suspicious of the official Obama chart but prefers her rectified chart with Cancer rising as opposed to the Aquarius rising chart using the official birth certificate. (Personally I have a hard time seeing Obama as a sensitive Cancerian ascendant.)
Nina Gryphon uses only the traditional planets. She used the Aries ingress (spring equinox) chart for the year and location of the election. You can .
Claude Weiss uses transits and progressions, converse progressions, solar returns including progressed solar […]
The square between Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn represents the departure from the status quo (Uranus) in favor of the individual (Aries) and the destruction (Pluto) of established power structures (Capricorn). Here are a few examples:
- Protests (Uranus) against Putin (Pluto) are the “new norm”
- And most shocking of all, .
