The Eris-Uranus conjunction of 2015-2017

( from “All Hail Discordia” by Divine Right.) If the global situation seems crazy and insane (and it does!) we can blame it on the conjunction between Eris and Uranus in the warrior sign of Aries, a conjunction that began in 2015.

Eris is a small planet that was discovered in 2003.  Her Roman name was Discordia – she is the goddess who, when not invited to a wedding, began the Trojan War by throwing a golden apple marked “for the fairest” into a circle of goddesses, beginning a dispute that threw Greece into turmoil for ten years.  (Read more about the mythology of Eris here.)  Eris moves very slowly – its orbital cycle is 560 years – and it is still not clear what astrological impact it brings.

Uranus is the planet of radical change and revolutionary behavior.  It has been in the sign of war (Aries) since 2010, fomenting conflicts around the world.  When the planet of discord (Eris) aligns with the planet of disruption (Uranus), it’s easy to see where established paradigms and principles would be turned upside down.

The last Eris/Uranus conjunction took place between 1927 and 1929 in the first degrees of Aries.  This was a period of tremendous scientific and technological (Uranian) breakthroughs as well as political turmoil.  The discovery of quantum physics, the first transatlantic flight by Charles Lindbergh followed by the first woman-led transatlantic flight (Amelia Earhart),  an 8.6 magnitude earthquake in China, rebellions and revolutions encircled the globe including China, Austria, Portugal, Mexico, Japan, Afghanistan.  This of course was the peak of the “Roaring Twenties,” a period of cultural revolution and excesses of all kinds that ended in the stock market crash of 1929 – an event that certainly […]

September 1 2016 solar eclipse: A Fiesta of Virgo

The Virgo New Moon on September 1st is part of a stellium of four planets plus the North Node in Virgo.  A lunar event is said to be an eclipse when it occurs close to the lunar nodes, the points at which the Moon crosses the path of the Sun, and this is astrologically significant because the nodes represent the evolutionary movement of the soul from the past (South Node) to the future (North Node).  This is why eclipses are often linked to significant events – there is a sense of fate with the nodes that comes through in an eclipse.

Today’s eclipse is an eclipse of the Sun at the New Moon – the solar conscious principle is eclipsed by the lunar instincts.  It’s a total eclipse and very significant astrologically since the North Node is just three degrees from the Sun and Moon.  However, because the Moon is farther away from the Earth than at other times, this is called an “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

The energy of this eclipse is powerful.  First of all, the intense concentration of Virgo precision impels us to seek improvement in all areas of our lives.  The details of our human existence are paramount right now and for the next week or so as the eclipse peaks and winds down.  Mercury (the mind) has just turned retrograde and is aligned with Jupiter (confidence and optimism) to expand our sense of what is possible.

The lunation (Sun/Moon/Node) is opposite Neptune (spiritual yearning) which aligns with the South Node to add a nostalgic touch and force us to address karmic patterns from the past that are holding us back. […]

Mercury retrograde alert! August 30-September 22, 2016

Planets don’t really move backward, but astrology observes the movement of the planets from our perspective on earth so we sometimes see their apparent motion reversing.  We call this “retrograde,” and every planet in the astrological pantheon will reverse its direction now and then. When a planet is retrograde, its influence can become stronger and more pronounced as it retraces its steps over our psyche to better make its point known.

Mercury is the ruler of communication and the mind, and its realm also include communication technology as well as short distance travel.  When Mercury is retrograde all of these things become more difficult and don’t always work the way we would like them to.  There is a greater tendency to experience communication snafus, equipment breakdowns, travel problems.  These periods are typically not ideal for beginning something new because our attention is turned away and we may not be as attentive to details as some ventures require.

Mercury retrogrades on the 29th degree of its own sign of Virgo, just before the Virgo New Moon on September 1st (Eastern time zone).  This is a triple whammy of Mercury/Virgo focus on the details of life, which makes it critical right now to be as attentive as possible.  Slow down the speed of your life, use your powers of observation to be sure all ducks are lined up precisely in a row before taking action.

Mercury is retrograde for three weeks four times every year and we can’t put our lives on hold while we wait for Mercury to reverse its course and head direct again.  Signing contracts, accepting new jobs, scheduling surgeries – these things must often happen during Mercury retrograde periods.  If you must begin or plan […]

The limits of positive thinking

positive thinkingWhile Pluto was in Sagittarius (1995-2008) optimism and positive thinking (Sagittarian traits) rose to an art form.  Pluto tends to bring a compulsive drive to any sign that it travels through, and while a certain degree of optimism and positivism is a good thing, the benefits of this kind of thinking end when other feelings are pushed into the underworld of the psyche.

Having worked a great deal to perfect my own positive thinking apparatus, I know very well how powerful changing your thought patterns can be.  When Pluto entered the more dour and practical sign of Capricorn in 2008 many found it difficult to maintain the habits of positive thinking and started to fall into fear and despair as the life they knew during the economic downturn began to spiral down along with the economy.

What I have learned in my own journey to transform my life is that along with changing our thought patterns we must honor and release the negative emotions that cloud our lives.  We can’t just ignore them or pray them away.  These old hurts and sadness and frustration and rage linger in the body until they can be processed through the psycho-emotional system and released.  These emotions and feelings are our teachers.  They are the debris that remain after painful experiences which we would just as soon forget so that we can more fully understand what happened to us.  This is the role of Chiron in the birthchart – to trigger these old feelings so that they can be processed and healed.  Chiron’s archetype is the mentor – the teacher who having undergone great trials gains great understanding and is able to impart wisdom to others.  These skills come after the healing of […]

Neptune in Pisces and extreme flooding

A sudden increase in floods over the past few years is being attributed to climate change by many scientists.

Climate change is never going to announce itself by name. But this is what we should expect it to look like.

That’s what many scientists, analysts and activists are saying after heavy rains in southern Louisiana have and forced tens of thousands of residents from their homes, in the latest in a series of extreme floods that have occurred in the United States over the last two years.

That increase in heavy rainfall and the resultant flooding “is consistent with what we expect to see in the future if you look at climate models,” said David Easterling, a director at the National Centers for Environmental Information, which is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Not just in the U.S. but in many other parts of the world as well.”

The flooding in Louisiana is the eighth event since May of last year in which the amount of rainfall in an area in a specified window of time the NOAA predictions for an amount of precipitation that will occur once every five hundred years, or has a 0.2 percent chance of occurring in any given year.

Louisiana joins five other states, most of them in the South, that have experienced deadly flooding in the last 15 months, including ,, and .

In the last three months alone, floods in , West Virginia and Louisiana have combined to […]
