Astrology and the Kaiser Healthcare Poll

Now this is interesting and mirrors what I suspected was the case.   with answers to two questions:

  1. It’s more important than ever now to tackle the problem of healthcare; or
  2. We can’t afford to tackle healthcare now.

The first opposition of Uranus (change) to Saturn (not change) occurred on November 3, election day.  At that time there was the widest disparity of opinions on this subject.  The second phase of the cycle occurred in February, and you can see the divergence at that point.  Chiron and Neptune were also conjunct at that time.

The second phase of the Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune conjunction occurred at the end of May, and at that point healing and healthcare (Chiron) evidently became a greater concern for the public as the gap in public opinion began to shrink, despite the violent town hall meetings that occured this summer.  By August the gap was at its smallest, diverging again in September with the opposition of Saturn and Uranus.

It will be interesting to see what will happen over the next few months as Saturn enters Libra and begins to square Pluto.  I suspect that there will be a greater desire to agree and form alliances under the Libra influence, and the square to Pluto could bestow a greater sense of impending danger which needs to be addressed.

The people around us help us create our reality

for what most of us already know:  our friends can make us fat, happy, and sad.

The National Heart Institute has followed more than 15,000 residents of Framingham, Massachusetts and their descendants, giving them comprehensive physicals every four years.  This data has resulted in a treasure trove for medical research.  Recently two social scientists, Nicholas Christakis and James Fowler, began using this data to study behaviors of the participants.  They discovered that good behaviors — like quitting smoking or staying slender or being happy — pass from friend to friend almost as if they were contagious viruses. The Framingham participants, the data suggested, influenced one another’s health just by socializing. And the same was true of bad behaviors — clusters of friends appeared to “infect” each other with obesity, unhappiness and smoking. Staying healthy isn’t just a matter of your genes and your diet, it seems. Good health is also a product, in part, of your sheer proximity to other healthy people. By keeping in close, regular contact with other healthy friends for decades, Eileen and Joseph had quite possibly kept themselves alive and thriving.

When a Framingham resident became obese, his or her friends were 57 percent more likely to become obese, too. Even more astonishing to Christakis and Fowler was the fact that the effect didn’t stop there. In fact, it appeared to skip links. A Framingham resident was roughly 20 percent more likely to become obese if the friend of a friend became obese — even if the connecting friend didn’t put on a single pound. Indeed, a person’s risk of obesity went up about 10 percent even if a friend of a friend of a friend gained weight.

News of Chiron from the Expo

Sorry, there will be no Astrological Musings Radio show today because I’m at the Body, Mind Spirit Expo in Raleigh this weekend.  Rich and I do these two shows a year where we showcase beautiful crystals and mineral specimens and some jewelry, and I do astrology and tarot readings.  They are a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet some fabulous people.

Next week we’ll be talking about the big planetary events coming up in September.  Of course I’ll be writing more about those events as well so watch for that over the next week or so.  Tomorrow I’ll be writing the September Skywatch article (visit my website for your free subscription!) so I’ll repost something interesting for you, and then Tuesday I’ll get back to regular blogging.

It’s been interesting talking to other practitioners about what their clients are going through.  Everyone has the same report:  Clients are more emotional than usual.  I had several readings yesterday with people who couldn’t keep from crying – their emotions were so close to the surface that they could no longer hold them back.  This is the effect of the Chiron/Neptune conjunction – the soul (Neptune) is releasing the pain of our old wounds (Chiron) so that healing and real transformation can bring us back to an ecstatic connection with our true self.

Sometimes when clients are going through a Chiron cycle they will want me to help them “get rid of all of this pain.”  Sometimes the emotional pain is instead transmitted into physical pain.  But the purpose of a Chironic event is not to get rid of the pain, but to walk through the fire of the pain and come out on the other side.  That painful sensitivity, however it manifests, is coming from painful memories that […]

Conspiracy Corner: More swine flu hysteria

In early August the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology met in Washington DC to discuss the science that will constitute President Obama’s science agenda over the next few months.  At the time, chairman John Holdren made no comment about the H1N1 flu virus, although the virus was on the agenda.  Council member Harold Varmus ,

Varmus said that while there is concern that the H1N1 virus is following a pattern similar to the devastating 1918 Spanish flu virus — mild in the spring and deadly upon its return in the fall — so far there is no indication that the H1N1 virus will become more dangerous.

from budget director Peter Orszag and John Holdren setting priorities for the 2011 budget made no mention of the H1N1 virus.

Yesterday, however, :

Swine flu, also known as H1N1, may infect as much as half of the population and kill 30,000 to 90,000 people, double the deaths caused by the typical seasonal flu, according to the planning scenario issued yesterday by the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology. Intensive care units in hospitals, some of which use 80 percent of their space in normal operation, may need every bed for flu cases, the report said. …

President Barack Obama was urged by his scientific advisory council to speed vaccine production as the best way to ease the burden on the health care system. Initial doses should be accelerated to mid-September to provide shots for as many as 40 million people, the panel said in a report released yesterday.

So suddenly vaccine production is the best solution as outlined in detail in  press release.

Pressure is being applied from somewhere.

If you want to get really paranoid, remember that John Holdren, head […]

Jayson Blair reinvents himself: An inspiring tale of the Wounded Healer

Jayson Blair, the New York Times journalist who was forced to resign in 2003 when it was discovered that he had plagiarized and simply made up some of his stories, is back in the news having reinvented himself as a life coach.  Blair now has a position with Ashburn Psychological Services in Virginia as a certified coach, something that has caused more than a few raised eyebrows in the media.

The story of Jayson Blair embodies the soul of the Chironic journey that we call the “Wounded Healer.”  This archetype is well-known in the psychological field and originated in the work of Carl Jung who is quoted as saying “Only the wounded physician heals.”  It is the experience of being wounded that provides the compassion required to assist others in their own healing journey.

Blair, an African-American, was blessed with a trail of success beginning with his stint as editor-in-chief of the student newspaper in college and continuing through his meteoric rise at the New York Times.  But his entire career he was dogged by questions and accusations of fabrication and reporting errors that were largely ignored until April 2003, when he was fired from the Times.  Blair’s rise through the Times was largely attributed to the desire for a more diverse workplace and the Blair story led to a lively national debate on the merits of affirmative action although Blair’s career paralleled that of Stephen Glass, a white reporter with the New Republic whose demise was chronicled in the film “Shattered Glass.”

According to Jayson Blair’s birthchart (March 23, 1976, time unknown, Columbia Maryland), he has the Sun in Aries and it form a challenging square to Mars, the ruler of Aries.  Mars and Aries are both fiery influences that […]
