Chiron pays Matthew a visit

For the most astrological fun you can have with your clothes on, you owe it to yourself to visit Matthew Currie’s blog where he takes on astrological issues with humor AND astro-intelligence.  Today he sits down with Chiron over a bottle of vodka:

I was sitting around last night contemplating my Solar Return chart in the traditional manner — over a bottle of cheap vodka — when the door bell rang. A pizza delivery car was idling outside. Not having ordered a pizza, but with a professional astrologer’s keen instincts for a free meal, I answered the door. Much to my surprise, the pizza was being delivered by no less than Chiron the Centaur himself.

“This must be an awkward moment for you” Chiron said.

“You’re telling me,” I replied. “I didn’t order a pizza, and I’m broke.”

“I didn’t mean that. I mean, you’ve never written about me, ever. And I rarely hear you mention me in your consultations.”

I felt myself blush a little, something that doesn’t happen much any more. “Well, you know I prefer a more mechanistic approach to my astrology. You know –”

Chiron interrupted. ” ‘I’ll tell you when you get hit by the truck, you figure out how youfeel about it.’ I know. It’s one of your favourite lines.”

I set the pizza down on the coffee table. “Look, I realize that the functions you represent are vital to the counselling process. Really, I do. I just have a hard time seeing the practical use of you in a reading. It’s not like a nice solid Uranus transit squaring natal Mars screwing up your blood pressure.”

“Isn’t Sun square Chiron on the Midheaven one of the tighter aspects in your chart?” Chiron asked.

“Yes,” I replied. “And that should make me some kind of expert if there was any sort of […]

The Sun is waking up


solar flare
Recent solar flare

Solar scientists met last week to discuss the higher levels of solar activity that are likely as we move out of the Solar Minimum of the past few years.  The head of NASA’s Heliophysics Division says “our technological society has developed an unprecedented sensitivity to solar storms.”

Spaceweather reports an M2-class flare on June 12th that hurled a billion-ton coronal mass ejection into space, and a new sunspot has emerged with a series of its own eruptions.   Solar flares have been connected with weather extremes, and there have been some powerful lightning storms over the past few days.

There are proven connections between Jupiter and sunspots, so the fact that the Sun is erupting into flares at the time that Jupiter conjoins Uranus in the fiery sign of Aries is an interesting coincidence.

Do we need to work the north node?

This post may be somewhat advanced for some readers, for which I apologize in advance.

North Node South Node

I had an email from a client the other day lamenting the difficulty in working her north node.

The nodes of the Moon mark the passage of the Moon across the ecliptic, the Sun’s apparent path through the zodiac.  The North Node, also called the Dragon’s Head (Rahu in Vedic astrology), represents the direction in which we are heading, and the South Node, the tail of the dragon or Ketu in the Vedic tradition, represents the influences from the past – that which is familiar and comfortable, and to which we retreat when under stress.

In Western astrology we typically look at the South Node as being negative and something to move away from, and the North Node as being something to move towards.  Many astrologers advise us to “work the North Node” – to minimize the effects of the sign and house of the South Node, and maximize the influence of the North Node.

I talked about this in my radio show that I titled “The Why we are Here Show” and if you’re interested you can listen to it here.  As I perceive the human incarnation, we come as a soul with a divine purpose, but we are working through a human personality.  The birthchart describes the trappings of the personality, and the kinds of experiences we will have that will provide tests and challenges as well as gifts and good fortune.  I believe that before we can fully absorb our spiritual and evolutionary purpose, we must heal and become fully actualized at the personality level.

Let’s say you have the South Node in Libra in the […]

Native perspectives on 2012

Molly at About Astrology has posted some interesting links on the 2012 connection to native American wisdom.  Molly writes:

I recently moved to the edge of a forest, and it’s made it possible to have more direct experiences of both nature and the cosmos. I get the sense of coming home to things I knew as little girl. One is that animals and all life is sacred. I’ve personally felt a shift from living more in my head, to living in the heart. And that’s the shift that indigenous wisdom keepers say is happening now. It’s the heart that’s tuned in to nature and animals that way.

She has links to a wonderful video with a Lakota Sioux wisdom keeper that is well worth watching as well.

The Uranus/Pluto Square: Responding Creatively to Crisis

Astrologer D.K. Brainard has a beautiful post about the oil spill in the Gulf, the extent of which is still unknown but appears to be spreading at alarming rates.  D.K. writes:

In her 1980 book The Aquarian Conspiracy, Marilyn Ferguson noted that a funny thing happened on the way to the revolution of the 1960s. Frustrated by the lack of real change resulting from marching in the streets, confronting the authorities and inciting young people to rebel against “the System,” many of the leaders of the 1960s counterculture eventually dropped out of the movement.

But they didn’t give up on their ideals, Ferguson argued. Instead, they did something even more radical. Rather than continuing to struggle in the world of effects, they turned inward to find – and attempt to heal – the evils afflicting their world. They turned on to meditation, yoga, nonviolent communication, holistic medicine, organic farming, and so many of the other spiritual practices that have become almost commonplace in forty short years.

The oil still gushing from deep beneath the sea off the Louisiana coast threatens to become the major man-caused environmental disaster of our lifetime. It demands a creative response from us, something better than blame, resentment, despair or hopelessness. We are now squarely in the zone of the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto “Cardinal Climax” of 2010. We knew the world would be galvanized by something; it appears we are being galvanized by the world itself – as Mother Earth erupts for the second time in less than a month.

Pluto represents the archetypal realms of the soul, both the individual soul and the world soul, and when dark clouds of volcanic material start spewing up from the depths of the Earth, we can be sure this […]
