Sunday inspiration: Musings on aging and friendship

Last night I went to a birthday party for someone I have known for over 30 years, since I first moved to North Carolina.  A large group of us that were involved in the same meditation group relocated to North Carolina at the same time, but because I left that group in the mid-1980s there were quite a few people I haven’t seen for many years, so there were people at this party that I hadn’t seen for years.

As many of you know if you’ve been following this blog for some length of time, I like to say that I have one of the hardest charts I’ve ever seen.  Saturn and Neptune straddle my Sun and square Uranus.  My Moon conjoins Pluto and the South Node at the IC, the root of the chart, and the whole mess squares both Jupiter and Venus.  And I just discovered recently that the Black Moon Lilith, a new tool in my astrological arsenal, conjoins Pluto and sets off that whole configuration.

If all of that makes no sense to you it doesn’t matter: suffice it to say that I had an extremely challenging interior experience and a great deal of psychological pain for much of my early life.  Since my first Saturn Return I have been on a path of healing, and since I’m now in my second Saturn Return that path has lasted for the past 30 years.  During this time I am glad to say that the hard work has paid off and resulted in a much happier individual than the one that started out on this planet back in 1952.

Over the past couple of years I have reconnected with three of my very closest friends from whom I […]

Blogversary and Blogvacation

This week marks the sixth anniversary of this blog.  Until recently, I posted just about every day and it has been an incredible way to meet people from around the world and share astrological information.

Perhaps it is my second Saturn Return, but I am feeling a bit burned out.  I am going to give myself a two-week blog vacation and will return in early December.  There are six years’ worth of archives, though, so please satisfy your astro obsession in the archives of this blog and by visiting my friends who are blogrolled in the sidebar.

I will still be posting astrological updates on my Facebook page and will probably post for the New Moon coming up next week.  Have a great two weeks and I’ll be back soon. 🙂

My Saturn Return ate my Skywatch

At least that’s what I’m blaming it on.  Those of you on my mailing list already know this story, but after spending over two hours writing the November Skywatch a template glitch ate the entire thing before it could be posted.  Thanks to those of you who suggested writing the article in a Word document and then transferring it into the website  – I will definitely do that next time!  The weird thing is I kept saving the document because I had a feeling something was going to happen.  Anyway… Saturn transits tend to create delays and disappointments and events that frustrate us, all in the name of keeping one’s nose to the grindstone. My chart has Saturn, Sun and Neptune all in a nice little triad and while Saturn has completed the transit to my Saturn and Sun it is now sitting right on my Neptune.  A very apt significator for the confusion of the disappearance into the ethers of my writing (Neptune rules fogs, mists, illusion and all things confusing, as well as the higher aspects of transcendence.)

But I will make up for it by posting everything that WOULD have been in Skywatch here at Astrological Musings.

During the month of November there are still no major interactions between the outer planets to create havoc, which means that any planetary transits to our own chart will be singular rather than the influence of a collective.  It also means that we are likely not to have any significantly huge global events, so this continues to be a time of rest and rehabilitation as we gear up for the fun with Uranus and Pluto in 2012.

Neptune turns direct on November 9th after traveling retrograde since the summer.  Since […]

In the shadow of Saturn

and I met for lunch yesterday and commiserated on our upcoming Saturn Returns – although we are a year about, our Saturns are close to the same degree and we both are in the shadow of the Saturn Return right now.  I hadn’t read her blog from Wednesday where she posted this amazing photo of Saturn from NASA’s :

Saturn’s Shadow (Nasa APOD)

There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about the second Saturn Return.  Someone I know insisted to me the other day that the Saturn Return lasts from age 58 to 62.  Clients will often call me when Saturn enters the sign that their Saturn falls in, thinking that is the time of the Saturn Return.  A few years ago a client became extremely angry with me when I suggested that her second Saturn Return would not have the same horrific impact that the first Saturn Return did.

Because Saturn’s role is to teach us how to be responsible adults, the first Saturn Return can be exceptionally difficult.  Some of us don’t want to be adults yet at that age and we resist the lessons, and have to deal with the resulting consequences. Many of you know that I have come to think of Saturn as a mentor; to me this image is more accurate and less fear-inducing than the “Celestial Taskmaster” that we usually use for Saturn.  The voice of Saturn within us tells us when we really know we could do better; sometimes it comes from outside of us instead.  Under Saturn transits we may experience financial losses or the famous delays and disappointments in putting our dreams in motion.  Saturn requires patience […]

Astrology in my world: the Black Moon Lilith

Maybe it’s because I am heading into the vortex of my second Saturn return (three degrees away it already is a doozy!), or maybe it’s because my progressed Mercury is getting ready to turn direct after being retrograde for many years.  In any case, I have been expanding my astrological repertoire, something I haven’t done since… well, really – ever.

When I started working with charts in the early 1980s Chiron was already on the scene and he hopped right into my charts and started speaking quite loudly.  But despite the fact that I was studying goddess archetypes at the time, the other asteroids didn’t talk to me and in fact seemed to clutter the chart, making it more difficult for me to read the essence of what the chart had to say.

Last spring I stumbled on which is a wealth of information for the intermediate and advanced astrologer.  I have been working with her on advanced progression techniques and since she works with all of the asteroids PLUS the Vertex and Black Moon Lilith, I am slowly but surely getting more comfortable with adding all of these points back into the chart.  I am particularly fascinated with the Black Moon Lilith since that point conjoins Pluto and the south node in my chart and explains some traumatic events I experienced as a child and horrific memories that seep in from previous lifetimes.  Here is about the Black Moon Lilith.

From what I have gathered so far, and I am embarking on a study project on the Black Moon, that this point relates to a primal rage and terror and power that exists in its raw form, unlike […]
