Neptune in Pisces: The Magic of Illusion, the Illlusion of Magic

Neptune in PiscesThe mass delusion that occurred this weekend when preacher Harold Camping predicted the Rapture would occur to presage the end of the world smacks of Neptune in its own sign of Pisces.  The word “rapture” is defined as “an expression or manifestation of ecstasy or passion; a state or experience of being carried away by overwhelming emotion.”   The planet Neptune instills in us a desire for this ecstasy; any planet in the sign of Pisces longs to be overcome by feelings that are greater than one’s individual self.

Each of us has Neptune in our chart somewhere, and even the most pragmatic of us possesses a  yearning for magic and to lose ourselves in an experience of something.  Depending on the makeup of our charts and our choices, this may be an obsession with a television program, or to lose ourselves in a good book.  It may be the high we feel when we’re running or participating in an extreme sport.  It could be the high we feel when we take a big risk or make a deal happen in our job.  Or it could be the transcendence and bliss that we experience in a long meditation when we achieve an experience that goes beyond the body.   There is a sense of magic with these experiences – a feeling that there is more to life than the material reality that we see with our physical eyes.  And there’s no doubt that this magical feeling opens the door into a reality that lies beyond the reality of our everyday existence.

Sometimes, though, the lines blur between magic and illusion.  We know when we become lost in a book that when the book is […]

May 21st is a bad day for the Rapture

The Rapture May 21 2011WARNING:  tongue-in-cheek sarcasm ahead!

As you may know, the Rapture is scheduled for 6 pm tonight with a bang and a big earthquake, according to Harold Camping, leader of Family Radio Worldwide.

“Because the year 2011 AD is exactly 7,000 years after 4990 BC when the flood began, the Bible has given us absolute proof that the year 2011 is the end of the world during the Day of Judgment,” the website of Family Radio says.

“Amazingly, May 21, 2011 is the 17th day of the second month of the Biblical calendar of our day.

“Remember, the flood waters also began on the 17th day of the 2nd month, in the year 4990 BC,” it adds.

Camping claims that come 6pm, a powerful earthquake will be felt before all the noble spirits are transported off the earth.

Everyone left behind will then suffer until October 21, when God will pull the plug on entire planet.

I wonder if Camping has been reading , whose research suggests that the end of the Mayan calendar is not December 21 2012,  but instead October 28, 2011.  I wonder what transpires between October 21st, when God pulls the plug on the planet, and October 28 when the world ends.

It’s also an interesting synchronicity that will be at its closest to earth in mid-October, and some websites hypothesize that as the earth passes through the tail of the comet we will encounter some .  (NASA, of course, disagrees.)

In any case, Christian leaders are up in arms against Camping since Jesus made it very clear in the Bible (and everyone knows the Bible is nothing if not consistent) that no one knows the day or […]

Sex and scandals at the Scorpio Full Moon

 

“Scorpio” by Boris Vallejo

The Shriver/Schwarzenegger breakup isn’t the only scandal to hit the newswire just as the Scorpio Moon reached its fullness. IMF Fund Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested on Saturday, May 14th for sexual assault on a hotel maid, although the major news outlets didn’t pick up the story until Monday the 16th, just as the Scorpio Moon reached its fullness.

There is no equating the Schwarzenegger matter with the alleged sexual assault by Strauss-Kahn.  One scandal is an affair between two consenting adults, and one is potentially an abuse of power.  Strauss-Kahn has left a long trail of sex scandals throughout his career and fancies himself a womanizer which is likely why he thinks his claims that the sex was consensual will provide him with .

In other sex scandal news, was arrested on Monday, just as the Scorpio Full Moon was culminating, for having sex with five of her students.

I’m certainly not saying that the Full Moon caused these incidents, but the timing eruption of these events into the media and the collective consciousness is certainly interesting in light of the Scorpionic effect which tends to bring a fascination with sexuality and power.  In Scorpio, sex and power are linked and each is a tool to achieve the other, and the Full Moon will often illuminate aspects of the sign that it falls in.

Maria Shriver finds her way

Maria ShriverAs the world now knows, Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with a long-time domestic worker in the Shriver-Schwarzenegger household. In my post the other day on the breakup between Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger I wrote:

Shriver’s progressed Midheaven is preparing to move into Aries – the beginning of a new 30-year cycle that will inspire a powerful motivation to find her own way in the world and develop a career in which she can play a leading role.  Last year’s Chiron/Neptune conjunction transited her ascendant between May of 2009 and November of 2010 – a cycle which likely caused her to re-examine who she is and how she wanted to express her life.

The planet Uranus is at work here as well, forming a trine to Uranus in her chart.  Because Uranus is the planet of personal innovation and authenticity, under this influence we strive to bring new experiences into our lives that will help us to feel truly free.

I suspect that after years of dealing with suspected infidelities and then discovering the huge secret that had been brewing under her nose for at least 11 years and possibly 15 (the age that the “love child” is said to be) there is a huge relief in coming out of that prison of lies.  And luckily for Maria Shriver, Oprah was there to help her to emerge unscathed on the stage of Oprah’s final star-studded show:

Half a day after her husband stunningly confessed to fathering an illegitimate child over a decade a ago with a female staffmember, Shriver took the stage at Chicago’s United Center alongside Gayle King(Winfrey’s other best girlfriend) around 10 p.m.

Radiant in a sexy teal gown, Shriver paid tribute to her close friend. […]

Scorpio Full Moon, May 17 2011: Becoming whole

Scorpio Full Moon May 17The Moon is full in Scorpio on May 17th at 7:09 am EDT, 11:09 am GMT, meaning that the Scorpio Moon will be exactly opposite the Sun in Taurus at that time.  The Full Moon is the peak of the lunar cycle: the point at which the Moon reaches its fullness and prepares for the waning phase of the cycle.  That point of fullness shows the Moon at the peak of her power.

The astrological Moon represents our emotions and describes the way we feel about things, but it is so much more complex than this.  The Moon is the inner child; it describes our fear of the unknown and tells where we retreat to safety.  The Moon is feminine in nature: changeable, powerful in its mystery, and comforting in its brilliance.  The waxing Moon represents the maiden in the first flush of beauty; the waning Moon represents the aging crone in her wisdom and power.  The Full Moon represents the comfort of the mother, and when we observe the Full Moon in the sky we often feel more connected to the essence of the Moon than at other times of the cycle.  We call her “Luna” – we acknowledge her power.

Scorpio is a fixed water sign – it is emotional but it is also powerful.  The fixed signs stand firm and unyielding, persistent and often stubborn and resistant to change.  Scorpio’s traditional ruler is Mars, so it is a fiery water sign which requires the courage (Mars) to face the demons of the darkness below.  Scorpio’s modern ruler is Pluto, Lord of the Underworld.  You can see how in Scorpio we must take the courage of Mars so that we can follow […]
