Astrology in my world: The falling away of things I know to be true

Art from

Astrology gets a bad rap for being unable to reliably predict the future. The fact is, while astrology reveals the underlying order of things, it does not reveal the future.  Through astrology we can know when there is potential for difficulty, but everyone experiences these cycles differently, and they are experienced differently at different times.

As I write this today at the end of November, I have just found out that a brilliant astrologer that I have worked with over the years, Dawn Bodrogi, just died.  In her last news letter she wrote that her mother had recently died just after a New Moon in the progressed chart, and Dawn had a New Moon in the progressed chart at the time of her death.  A client recently also had a New Moon in the progressed chart at the time of death.

When we think of New Moons, death is not the first thing we predict!  A New Moon marks a new beginning – the old way is falling away as the lunar phase wanes to pave the way for a new start at the New Moon.  Often there is a fundamental change at the core of our being, or a move to a new location.

In my own chart, Jupiter (beliefs and meaning) is in a powerful square to Pluto (power and intensity).  This dynamic typically suggests someone who holds on tightly to their belief system, and there is a self-righteous quality to it.  When I have a strong feeling about something, my confidence in that belief never wavers.  98% of the time this confidence is well-placed and serves me well.  But when we are so rigid in our beliefs and what we think […]

This Scorpio New Moon is packed with Scorpio Power

Scorpio New Moon 2017

What is Scorpio Power exactly?  Scorpio is the sign that represents the nature of Power itself.  Ruled traditionally by Mars, the god of war, and in the modern scheme by Pluto, the god of death and regeneration, Scorpio has some very intense allies.  Under Scorpio’s influence we must find the courage to face our demons from Mars, and the wisdom to face our deepest Truth from Pluto.  We must learn how to exert force to make things happen (Mars), and when to surrender to events beyond our control, our Fate if you will (Pluto).

Scorpio is all about depth, intensity, the gritty Realness of life and it’s not always pretty.

This month’s Scorpio New Moon on November 18th is particularly intense not only because four planets including the Sun and Moon are in Scorpio, but also because both of the Scorpio rulers, Mars and Pluto, are locked in an intense square aspect that can signify conflict, power issues, anger and rage.  But when Mars (the individual Will) and Pluto (the Will of the higher self) are managed consciously, this planetary combination is a supremely beneficial ally for manifesting intention and creating real magic in our lives.  In order to utilize Mars and Pluto consciously we must be prepared to release any ideas we may have of what we think we want and need (Mars issues) and seek the guidance of the inner voice of the higher self (Pluto).  We must be ready to accept what we cannot change (our Fate = Pluto) and change what we are able to (our desires = Mars).

This intensity is softened by a lovely harmonious trine from Chiron (wounding and healing) to the New Moon which will help us […]

Planetary news this week: November 13, 2017 including the Big Venus/Jupiter Conjunction!

Venus conjunct JupiterIf you follow the astrological news you may have heard about an important Venus/Jupiter conjunction taking place right now.  Venus and Jupiter align every year or two so that alone is not news, but as explains, “In a word, the answer is declination. At the moment of the exact conjunction, this time there is only an 11′ separation between the planets in terms of declination. That means they are simultaneously conjunct and parallel. ”

You can read more about the astronomy , but essentially, Venus (love and attraction) and Jupiter (optimism and expansion) are closer to each other than they usually are even during a normal conjunction and they will be brighter in the sky.  The astrological effect of a Venus/Jupiter conjunction typically lasts only a day or two so you are not likely to notice any major change, but this can be a VERY lucky day, especially if it is in a favorable aspect to your own chart.

Jupiter is also moving into a harmonious dance with Neptune (inspiring magic and creativity) which will culminate on December 2nd, and throughout this week Venus acts as a translator between those two.  Magic and inspiration abounds right now, inspiring us to spread our wings and touch the sky as we reach for our highest aspirations and find a way to make our sweetest dreams come through.  Venus adds a glimmer of fairy dust to everything we touch all the way until the New Moon on the 18th.

The Scorpio New Moon is an intense one that will require some significant inner adjustments (watch these pages for more information later in the week) so enjoy the Venus/Jupiter magic this week and let it help you create your […]

Planetary news this week: November 7, 2017

horoscopes November 2017Saturn (discipline and hard work) and Uranus (innovation and change) are dancing in the sky right now – a harmonious combination that  brings inspiration and an ability to think outside the box while being able to remain organized and focused.  This can help us in all kinds of ways, from expanding a spiritual practice to creating a new business venture. It is especially useful for writers as it opens the doorway to multidimensional thought.  Though this dynamic peaks on the 11th of November, its influence is strongest this week.

We have two planets changing direction this week, signifying a change in focus and a different quality of energy.  Mercury moved into Sagittarius on the 5th, lifting us out of its former intensity in Scorpio into the more expanded vision of Sagittarius.  Then Venus enters Scorpio on the 7th and facilitates our passage into the dark Underworld of our passions and deepest fears and desires.  In Scorpio, Venus creates an important time to confront any issues in our relationships that may be creating problems.  This process isn’t easy, but is better entered willingly than by force.

The 9th brings a pleasant day which helps to empower and inspire us, although an awkward Mars aspect may weaken our resolve and make it difficult to achieve anything meaningful. (Sun sextile Pluto, Mars quincunx Neptune)

Between the 10th and the 13th we have a bit of rough astrological weather. On the 10th communication may be somewhat disconnected for just a day or so, and you may find yourself at odds on the 11th, wondering which path to take.  On the 13th we FEEL lucky and perhaps we are lucky that day, but we are also insecure and somewhat foggy.  If a golden opportunity presents […]

The astrology of the US addiction to guns, 2017 edition

Astrology of guns USAMuch of this article is reposted from a post from 2013.  Since then we have had the worst mass shootings in US history: 

  • Las Vegas, Oct 2017: 58 dead
  • Orlando, June 2016: 49 dead
  • Virginia Tech, Apr 2007: 32 dead
  • Sandy Hook, Dec 2012: 27 dead
  • Texas church, Nov 2017: 26 dead

Everywhere you turn these days the discussion is about guns.

Guns are not a new topic for discussion, but the feverish frenzy over which gun rights advocates are protecting their rights to own assault weapons and other types of weapons meant for mass killings is rather recent.

There is no nation like the United States in terms of gun ownership.  The (Sibly) chart of the United States has Sagittarius rising, which echoes the expansive philosophies that have always drove the country towards constant expansion and religious ideals, both Sagittarian concepts.  We normally would look towards Mars for signs of warfare like behavior, but in the US chart the passion for guns is found in the placement of Pluto in the second house.  This fanatacisim about guns originates not in an aggressive desire to assert force (Mars) but in a hunger for freedom (Sagittarius ascendant) and a relentless (Pluto) drive to accumulate masses of money through manipulation of the nation’s ideals (second house).

American gun lovers don’t want to accumulate stockpiles of weapons to kill their neighbors.  They want these weapons because they believe that it will protect that Sagittarius rising freedom.  It doesn’t hurt that Uranus (planet of liberation from oppression) conjoins both Venus (partners) and Mars (aggression) in the chart.  That Uranus/Mars conjunction especially denotes a radical desire for liberty at all costs.  Americans own twice as many guns as any other country, per capita.

That’s […]
