The emergence of Q-anon at the lunar eclipse

Eclipses are often associated with the unmasking of something which has been secret or repressed, and a lunar eclipse, which occurs at the Full Moon, can expose the creatures of the night such as cockroaches and werewolves.

So it’s not totally shocking that the underground right wing conspiracy group called  has suddenly emerged into the light of day and into mainstream consciousness.  This uniquely American phenomonon apparently began in October of 2017 and in the months that have ensued a variety of beliefs have emerged that center around a character known as Q who is an insider in the Trump administration who is dropping secret information to its followers.  Alex Jones and Jerome Corsi, well known leaders of right wing conspiracy theories, that QAnon has been corrupted and co-opted by the CIA and NSA in early May.  Throughout its history this group has become known for wild theories with no basis in fact, such as Pizzagate in which it was said that leaked emails written in code revealed that Hilary Clinton and John Podesta were carrying on a sex trafficking ring under a pizza parlor in Washington DC, resulting in death threats to the proprietor.

Other news articles have been creeping into the news lately but it wasn’t until the kickoff of President Trump’s “MAGA Tour” right after the lunar eclipse on July 27th that knowledge of the existence of QAnon reached critical mass.  At the kickoff rally in Tampa, signs and T-shirts declaring “We are Q” revealed the explosive emergence of this fringe group into the mainstream.

I’ve been writing a lot lately about the transits to the US chart involving Pluto and the upcoming Pluto […]

An astrological chart for Russia

Nations have astrological charts just as people do – in fact, you can cast an astrological chart for any person, event, animal – every moment in time has its own chart.  The study of astrological charts of nations and political entities is called “mundane astrology.”

With Russia in the news now, someone asked in the comments about a chart for Russia and I dug up this old article I wrote exploring which chart for Russia is the most useful, and outlining a bit of an analysis for the Russian chart.


December 8, 1991 is the date that Belarus, the Russian Federation and the Ukraine announced the Minsk Declaration which dissolved the Soviet Union, but the agreement wasn’t ratified by the Russian Parliament until the 12th of December that year at 13:22 according to Nick Campion. On the other hand,  uses the chart of December 25, 1991 when the flag for the new Russia began flying at the Kremlin.

The late Zipporah “Zip” Dobyns, one of the world’s most celebrated astrologers, uses yet another chart: the chart of  in August of 1991. Her reasoning in using this chart is because “it works” to explain subsequent events better than the other dates. With all due respect to the memory of Ms. Dobyns, this doesn’t seem a very scholarly way to approach the birth of a nation.

To me the date that makes the most sense from a historical point of view is the date that the Russian Federation declared its independence from the Soviet Union which was June 12, 1990. This is the date that the First Congress of People’s Deputies of the Russian Federation adopted the Declaration on Russia’s National Sovereignty which seems to […]

Heads up! July’s lunar eclipse is the longest duration in a century

Blood moon eclipse July 2018  

The July 2018 full moon [in Aquarius] presents the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100) on the night of July 27-28, 2018, lasting for a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes. (In contrast, the previous total lunar eclipse on , lasted 1 hour and 16 minutes.) A partial eclipse precedes and follows the century’s longest total lunar eclipse, each time lasting 1 hour and 6 minutes. So, from start to finish, the moon takes nearly 4 hours (3 hours and 55 minutes) to cross the Earth’s . …

This lunar eclipse is primarily visible from the world’s  (Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand). South America, at least in part, can watch the final stages of the eclipse just after sunset July 27, whereas New Zealand will catch the beginning stages of the eclipse before sunrise July 28. North America, most of the Arctic and much of the Pacific Ocean will miss out entirely…

Some say that the effect of an eclipse is most powerful where it is viewable, but in my research of mundane events I have not seen this to be particularly true.  From an astrological perspective, the energetic intensity of an eclipse stems from the fact that the Sun and Moon are in a tight relationship to the lunar nodes. The nodes of the moon are known as the Dragon’s Head (North Node) and Tail (South Node), and in many ancient cultures it was said that during an eclipse a dragon did battle with the moon – a myth that has a basis in science because of the proximity of the […]

“Does my chart say I will be…” 2018 edition

I have written on this before, but I think it bears repeating.  I often get this question from readers and clients.  “Does my chart say I will ever be able to have a successful relationship?”  “Does my chart say I can overcome my fear of success?”  “Will I ever be financially secure?”  Or occasionally I will hear from someone who wants to know when their business will be successful, or whether someone they are involved with is for certain their soulmate.

The truth is, while the birthchart will identify challenges and blocks that we need to overcome in order to successfully navigate our life path, and while it certainly will show where we have particularly strong talents or skills in certain areas, it does NOT dictate our fate.

My answer to this question usually is, “Do you WANT to have a successful relationship, overcome your fear of success, become financially secure?”  If you have the desire, you can make it happen.  I have had clients whose charts were not well suited to owning a business, and certainly there are people (myself included) whose charts suggest a lot of trouble and trauma in relationships.  But through effort, when our charts are challenged in certain areas we can still fulfill our dreams.  But it does take effort, and it often takes healing old wounds that hold us back which is not an easy process.

For example, some astrologers would say that an individual with Saturn (the lord of Karma) in the seventh house of marriage will never be married.  But I have seen clients with long-lasting happy marriages with that placement.  I myself have Venus in Scorpio square to Pluto, a terrible aspect for relationships.  And it’s true that I had a […]

Fate vs Free Will in Astrology: Part II, the modern debate

Catch up with Part I, a History, here. 

The question of whether humans are controlled by their fate or have a part to play in their own destiny is as old as time.  Much of our western philosophy comes from the ancient Greeks for whom the gods controlled human destinies despite great efforts of men and women to escape the fates accorded to them.  The Greek concept of hubris is applied to ordinary mortals who attempt to challenge the gods, and therefore their fate.

It’s no surprise, then, that the resurgence of Hellenistic (Greek) astrology brings with it the return of the idea of fate.  Astrologer Chris Brennan, a graduate from Kepler College, is the acclaimed expert in this field.  Chris and I did a podcast on this topic a while back  and he has just published a .

Chris writes:

An important point to make with respect to transits to a person’s natal chart is that they do not only represent internal character traits and psychological states that are being activated or experienced during a given transit, as some modern astrologers argue, but transits also correlate with concrete external events and circumstances that occur in the life of the native at fixed periods.

While we may have a certain amount of leverage as to how we react to the internal psychological states that we experience during a given transit, some of the external events that occur in tandem with the transits are frequently out of our control in a concrete sense. With these concrete external events we are still in a position of being able to slightly modify our perception or […]
