The Virgo Full SuperMoon, March 19 2011

SupermoonThe Moon will be full today, Saturday March 19th, at 2:10 pm EDT.  The Moon is full in Virgo, and it is opposite the Pisces Sun in the sky.  The Virgo/Pisces polarity relates to a blending of our experience of life in the material world (Virgo) with our desire to seek a more transcendent experience (Pisces).

As you probably know, this Moon is a Supermoon (® Richard Nolle) and is closer to the Earth than other times of the year (see this earlier article for more information)

When the Moon is full in that solilunar opposition, the influence of the Moon is more powerful, revealing our emotions and instincts and our hidden reactions to unseen events.  The Moon is invisible in daylight, and it is only in the darkness of the unconscious that our deeply ingrained emotional patterns come to light.

This Full Moon is at the end of Virgo which requires an orderly and methodical approach to the realm of feelings.  There is an attention to detail here, and a need to care for the details of life in a body, even as the Pisces Sun urges us to transcend this wordly life for something more magnificent.

But another energetic element is at work in the chart for the Full Moon – the incongruity between the Aries influence (Uranus, Jupiter and Mercury) of aggression and defense combined with the Pisces influence (Sun, Mars and Chiron) that seeks harmony and flow.  Under the influence of this Full Moon we are being called not only to honor the daily rituals and routines (Virgo) of life and self-care, but also to remain strong and vigilant (Aries) while maintaining a grounded (Virgo) attunement to the spiritual forces (Pisces) that […]

Nate Dogg: The effect of Chiron and Uranus on health

Nate Dogg diedDisclaimer: I am not a medical professional, nor do I have training in the medical fields.  However, I have a strong interest in the way energy works in the body as described by astrological symbolism.

I had never heard of Nate Dogg, who recently died at the age of 41 after suffering from a series of strokes, until I heard about his passing on the news.  It was his age, 41, which grabbed my attention since that is the age at which transiting Uranus opposes natal Uranus in everyone’s life.  This is the classic “midlife crisis” transit in which we are forced to reassess everything in our life and when we tend to make big and sudden changes.

Uranus, being the ruler of electricity, also has an effect on the way our bodies manage the electrical charges of the nervous system.  Many people going through the “Uranus Opposition” as we call it experience a flood of kundalini energy, known as the “kundalini opening,” which can put stress on the nervous system and result in a high degree of anxiety.

Nate Dogg (born as Nathaniel Hale on August 19, 1969, time unknown) was born with the Sun in Leo and locked in a tight square to Neptune.  This is the same Sun/Neptune square that we see in President Obama’s chart, and while it affords a high degree of creativity it also suggests someone who has  difficulty (Neptune)  establishing an identity (Sun) for themselves.

Mr. Dogg also had Saturn, planet of testing and challenge, tightly opposed to his Scorpio Moon which reveals a deep sense of isolation and a propensity towards depression.  That strong Saturn placement also denotes someone who works hard and can be very disciplined at the core. […]

St. Patrick’s Day musings

St Patrick's Day astrologyArt by . Every now and then I do think about things that are not astrological in nature, and occasionally I like to indulge those wanderings in this blog.  So please forgive my digression as I delve today into the meaning of St. Patrick’s Day.

I am a bit of a freak about Ireland (also West Africa, but that’s another story for another time).  I love the music, am thrilled by the legends and mysterious beauty of the country.  So you would think I would be a big celebrant when St. Patrick’s Day comes along.

Like many Christian myths, the origin of St. Patrick  is shrouded in mystery and the actual history is lost to time.  It appears likely that he was the son of a Roman chieftain living in Roman Britain who was kidnapped and taken to Ireland where he was held captive.  There is an elaborate mythology around his eventual conquering of the local Druidic rulers that may or may not be true.

The simplified legend of St. Patrick that has come down to us today claims that St. Patrick drove all of the snakes in Ireland into the sea.  Historical records show that there were no snakes in Ireland during the period in which St. Patrick was said to live there, yet images of snakes abound in the ancient carvings and sculptures in Ireland.

Snakes and serpents are symbols of wisdom, and serpents were most particularly symbolic of the Druids and other Celtic peoples in Ireland.  The serpent continually sheds its skin, thereby representing eternal life and cosmic transformation as well.  So the legend of St. Patrick clearly describes Patrick’s heroism in driving the Druids from power in Ireland and replacing […]

Uranium and Plutonium = Uranus and Pluto

MOX fuelIn a stunning display of astrological synchronicity, it turns out that the reactor (known as Unit 3) in the Fukushima nuclear plant that exploded yesterday is more toxic than the other reactors because of the fuel that’s been used there.

At a press conference in Tokyo, Masashi Goto, who worked for Toshiba as a reactor researcher and designer, said the mixed oxide (MOX) fuel used in unit 3 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant contains plutonium, which is much more toxic than the fuel used in the other reactors.
MOX fuel is a mixture of uranium and plutonium reprocessed from spent uranium, and is sometimes involved in the disposal of weapons-grade plutonium.

Uranus and Pluto are about seven degrees from an exact square (90 degree) formation, but with Uranus moving into Aries the faceoff between the two planets begins.  This summer the alignment between the two planets will be as close as it will be this year, about a degree from the exact square which will not culminate until next year.

I’m not a scientist, and perhaps some of my scientist readers (and husband) will weigh in on this issue. It is my understanding that Uranium has some unique (of course) properties in that it can quickly generate a nuclear reaction but cannot sustain it.  This correlates with the qualities of astrological which instigates a radical reaction but often doesn’t stay around to put the pieces back together.  Plutonium is evidently made FROM Uranium and in combination with Uranium can sustain a chain nuclear reaction for power plants.

The combination of Uranium and Plutonium would be the astrological equivalent of a conjunction, in which the elements are fused and work as a team. […]

Will the Supermoon wreak more havoc on the world?

SupermoonAstrology is back in the mainstream news, with that have been circulating the internet lately:

The powerful tsunami that today slammed into Japan’s eastern coast comes just two days after warnings that the movement of the moon could trigger unpredictable events on Earth.

Astrologers predicted that on March 19 – a week tomorrow – the so-called ‘supermoon’ will be closer to Earth than at any time since 1992, just 221,567 miles away, and that its gravitational pull will bring chaos to Earth.

Others on the Internet have predicted it will cause further catastrophes such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

I’ve written quite a few times on this blog about the “Supermoon” phenomenon, which can be traced back to astrologer Richard Nolle who coined the term.  A “Supermoon” is said to occur when the Full Moon is at perigee, meaning it is closer to the Earth than any other time.  Is the March 19 Supermoon that different from any other Full Moon at perigee?

Now that Richard is being bombarded with questions on this topic to clarify the mystery:

There are 4-6 SuperMoons a year. The one on March 19, 2011 is in fact the closest SuperMoon of the year, but it’s not by any means the first one in 18 years, nor even the first extreme SuperMoon in 18 years. The truth is, March 19 will be the second SuperMoon this year, and we only have to go back to January 30, 2010 to find the last example of an extreme SuperMoon; as revealed in my tables published in the last century. There was a SuperMoon in effect February 12-21 this year in fact, which anyone who actually read […]
