The astrology of Paul Walker’s death

Paul WalkerActor Paul Walker died on November 30th when a 2005 Porsche Carrera he was riding in crashed into a light pole and burst into flames.  Walker was most noted for his role in the “Fast and Furious” franchise of vehicular-oriented action films so it is ironic that he died in an automobile accident.

Automobiles are ruled by Mercury which is concerned with short journeys as opposed to plane rides to distant lands.  Mercury was important in Paul Walker’s chart in several ways: Mercury is the traditional ruler of Virgo (I personally believe that Chiron is the modern ruler of Virgo although this is a matter of interpretation) and Walker’s Sun was in Virgo, as was his Mercury.  When Mercury is in one of its own signs (Gemini is the other) it is stronger in its expression and more important in the chart, and when Mercury rules the Sun, the essential Self of the individual, its power becomes magnified to an even greater extent.

We typically don’t think of Virgos as being particularly reckless, although there is a type of Radical Virgo (such as Amy Winehouse) in which  other chart dynamics (such as Mars or Uranus placements) conflict with the Virgo element to drive the individual into reckless and radical behavior.  We don’t see that in Walker’s chart, and indeed Walker’s “Fast and Furious” character Brian O’Connor served as the steady counterpoint to Vin Diesel’s wild and testosterone-driven lead character.

This makes sense with Walker’s Taurus Mars – a slow and steady Mars that is not excitable or overly aggressive.  Mars in Taurus is the proverbial bull who is slow to anger, but when anger erupts it explodes with a powerful force.

Walker’s chart was not a particularly difficult […]

Sagittarius New Moon, December 2 2013

In times like these, when the foundation of our lives are breaking apart in order to free us to establish new patterns and structures to assist us to grow and evolve, we need to be able to expand our minds so that we can evolve the systems of belief that give our lives meaning.  This is the role of the Sagittarius New Moon today.

The New Moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle.  Under the New Moon our conscious mind, represented by the Sun, fuses with the lunar instinct of the Moon and generate the energy to begin something new.

Sagittarius represents the kind of faith that brings confidence and abundance, with a general sense of good will and adventure. Like all New Moons, the Sun and Moon align in concert and beam to us the unadulterated Sagittarian light of positive energy and a desire for expansion. Under the Sagittarian New Moon we resist confinement and responsibility – we yearn to be free. This New Moon forms a challenging square to Chiron (deep wounds) that can bring up sensitive areas to be healed before the Sagittarian expansion and freedom can truly take root.

Jupiter, the ruling planet of the New Moon, is opposed by Venus at this time which suggests that we may feel somewhat confined by our relationships (Venus) for a few days. Finding spaces in our interconnectedness where we can be free while remaining centered in the heart will be a key piece to navigating this New Moon successfully. New Moons are times of new beginnings, and under this New Moon influence we find ourselves learning how to be free while remaining anchored to the people in our lives that are important to us.

Sunday Inspiration for Autumn: Reawakening

autumn-rocks

Smell the fallen leaves as they are decaying – it is your body.

Feel the raindrops on your skin – it is your blood.

Feel the hardness of stone and the softness of the breeze – it is your breath.

Become soft like the wind and speak to the leaves as they fall, releasing and forgiving and renewing in the whole.

Flow with the cycle of life for life is your tissue that binds it all together as one dream.

Then, when you close your eyes, return to Source and rest in Love.

The great central sun shall rise in the morning, re-awakening you to life.

Black Elk

The Kennedy Assasination and the US chart

Kennedy assassination astrologyUnless you’ve been asleep all day you will know that today marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  I have been a student of conspiracy theory since the 1980s, and there is a fantastic book called that you must read if you want to discover all of the details in all of their suspicious glory.

The assassination on November 22, 1963 took place just as Uranus and Pluto were beginning their conjunction cycle that would eventually bring about the social upheaval and change that we now call “the sixties.”  The Vertex, the point of fate, was sandwiched between Uranus and Pluto, joining them together by association to create an event that would forever change the course of history. At the time Saturn (governmental structures) was squared by Neptune (delusion and deception), ensuring that a confusing veil would be cast over the entire event making it one of the great mysteries of our time.

I discovered something else that is quite significant – during the few years before the assassination, Pluto and the South Node were coming into alignment in the progressed chart of the United States.  Humans have charts that progress over time, and so do nations and anything that has a beginning at a specific moment in time.  (You might be interested in this long article about the history of the US progressed Sun.)

Pluto represents the force of destruction and decay that is followed by regeneration and new birth, and the South Node is a point in the passage of the Moon that represents the past, a karmic inheritance.  When Pluto and the South Node collide, there is often a debt that comes due, or a dramatic […]

Mars in Libra December 2013: What can we expect?

Mars in LibraYou will be reading lots of stuff in the astrological news about the dangers of Mars in Libra as it collides with the Uranus/Pluto square (see the sidebar for more information about this cycle).  I wrote a bit about this last week and felt after reading the comments that it’s probably a good idea to talk more about Mars moving into Libra in early December and what that will mean for the Uranus/Pluto cycle and the tension that many of us have been experiencing.

There’s no denying that Uranus/Pluto cycles are periods of great change, and we have been going through great astrological changes ever since 2008 when Pluto entered Capricorn, a 20-year shift of energy that created contraction and destruction of any foundation that did not have a firm footing.  Then along comes Uranus in 2011 and 2012, destabilizing and creating resistance and radical change.  This is big stuff and was bound to have an impact.

It is important to understand that the Universe is continually striving for balance.  If we pay attention we can see this at work in our personal lives.  For example, the person who hates their job but is afraid to leave it.  Finally they are fired and while they may see this as the worst thing that could ever happen to them, ultimately it can be a liberation to free them from a negative situation. Clients will tell me “Oh, that was a terrible time” but upon further investigation it becomes clear that while very disruptive events occurred, and it was an uncomfortable time, these events ultimately created change that had positive impacts for the rest of that person’s life.

The archetype of Mars is the “God of War.”  This gives […]
