I missed the New Moon! and other planetary news

Sorry y’all – when I returned I was obsessed with this mall shooting and didn’t catch up on where the planets were.

Those of you who subscribe to Skywatch have already had this information, but for newbies and visitors here’s the excerpt from the December Skywatch on the New Moon and this week’s events including the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction:

The New Moon in Sagittarius occurs on December 9 at 12:41 pm EST. We now have five planets in Sagittarius (Mercury, the Sun/Moon conjunction, and the conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto. Sagittarius brings optimism and an expanded sense of possibility, but also a tendency towards recklessness and superficial. I believe that this combination will bring the last hurrah of the financial markets before the cold winter of the Capricorn and Virgo influence sets in next year.

The New Moon begins a new cycle each month, starting things afresh in a different segment of the zodiac. We have the opportunity now to make a fresh start in our search for Truth as we explore new realms of ideas and philosophies. Sagittarius instills an innate curiosity about other cultures and religious ideas, although there is a tendency towards judgement and self-righteousness under the rulership of Jupiter, King of the Gods. This will be particularly now that Jupiter is two days away from a conjunction with Pluto which adds a compulsive and rigid quality to the need for an understanding of The Truth.

This New Moon makes a square to Uranus (rebellion against the status quo) and a sextile to Neptune (the world of Spirit), indicating that the focus for this lunation is a radical departure (Uranus) from the established religious orders and into a true experience of the divine (Neptune). This is […]

Wildfires under Mars in Cancer

fireBecause I see everything through the filter of astrological symbolism, I look for correlations. Still, I try not to see them where they don’t exist so I have hesitated to draw any astrological conclusions regarding the fires that are burning in southern California. A million people have been forced from their homes and thousands of homes have burned, with a billion dollars in property damage.

Victoria Bazeley connects the wildfire to Mars in Cancer: “The fires in Southern California are equally literal in their astrological symbolism in the sense that with Mars in Cancer, Mars (fire) is attacking homes (Cancer).”

She goes on to say:

Mars in Cancer, in a symbolic sense, can signal a sense of dislocation, unease, tension, strife or danger in the home for many people. At last count half a million people have been driven out of their homes by these fires, and for these people, there is nothing particularly symbolic about this phenomenon. It’s just their real lives.

Now, I don’t want to make too much out of this synchronicity or to state that Mars in Cancer “causes” fires that affect residences. After all, Southern California is fire country, and we have fires every year. We can expect, from what I hear on the news, to have more of them and more catastrophic ones in the future, as global warming and drought are not doing us any favors. And Mars does transit through Cancer every couple of years.

But…Mars does not go through an unusually long cycle in Cancer, complete with retrogrades, all that often. And the scale of evacuations with this latest round of fires in California is greater than any I’ve ever heard of in my life. In fact, I believe I heard on TV that […]

News of the Weird: Jupiter squares Uranus

Energy #1 from Lise Nilson Energy #1 from Lise Nilson

In my journal the other day I posted these news items that ran that day indicating the tremendous stress that people seem to be under right now:

  • a woman arrested at an airport strangles herself during a panic attack after being denied access to her flight;
  • a business owner in Tennessee shot himself at a city council meeting after being denied a zoning request;
  • an airport worker’s ipod caught fire in his pants.
  • The next day a police deputy was insulted by his girlfriend at a party and killed six people. Then yesterday a bus carrying the jury for the inquest into the death of Princess Diana retraced her final route through Paris crashed into a pillar at the Ritz Hotel in an eerie echo of the crash that killed the princess.
  • In response to a query about similar bizarre occurrences elsewhere in the world, Denise from Australia sends a report that a New Zealand doctor performing surgery on his patient misplaced the patient’s false teeth which were discovered later down his throat.

Perhaps these things happen all the time and we’re just more sensitive to them when Jupiter expands our Uranian sense of the unusual. Jupiter and Uranus are both unpredictable planets, and this transit will affect everyone differently depending upon the nature of the chart. Jupiter’s confidence can become overblown and combine with the recklessness of Uranus to create a willingness to take more risks than are wise. Or we may find ourselves overwhelmed by the urge to flee our current situation and take on something completely new.

This kind of restlessness and unpredictability is most difficult for those with earthy or watery charts. Jupiter is said to […]

“A Naked Singularity” and the Uranus factor

singularityTerence McKenna described human development as a series of events that repeat each other in multiple dimensions with an end point. Wikipedia calls this “a succession of historical periods which are “compressed” versions of each other” and states that “[i]n this manner, [McKenna] describes an overall acceleration of human cultural development, which he likens to a “tightening spiral” approaching what he describes as the “transcendental object of the universe”. The end point, or “singularity,” occurs when the rate of development becomes infinitely rapid.

relate this concept to technological development alone, noting the acceleration of technological progress since the late 1780s when Uranus was discovered instigating the technology revolution. While the acceleration of computer technology seems to have slowed, there seems to be an incredible amount of new inventions and new information about the cosmos downloading into the brains of scientists.

Like  about a study that appears just in time for Pluto’s final passage across the Galactic Center:

Could a naked singularity, the bare core of a black hole, be sitting at the centre of our galaxy? A new study shows how astronomers could detect such a brazen object – which is so dense it would shred the known laws of physics.Singularities exist in the heart of every black hole, according to Einstein’s general theory of relativity. When matter collapses under its own gravity, it forms either a point or a ring-shaped line of infinite density. But each of these singularities is cloaked by a so-called event horizon – where light and everything else is inexorably sucked inwards. So we could never see one.

Unless, that is, there are black holes that spin at extreme speeds. A spinning black hole drags nearby space around with it, and if […]

Mars/Pluto in the news

The combination of Mars in Gemini, the sign of communication, opposed to Pluto in Sagittarius denotes an escalation of verbal confrontation, threats of war and the concept of speaking truth to power. Rather than seeing outright war in the news, such as we have seen with Mars square to Pluto, we are seeing events that create the conflict that leads to war:

  • A French official threatened war against Iran on Sunday, resulting in a flurry of counterattacks by Russia and China.
  • The attack on civilians in Iraq by the US contractor Blackwater that resulted in the deaths of between 10 and 30 people has provoked increased anger in Iraq against the American presence there.
  • Israel has cut off power and water supplies to the Gaza strip, setting the stage for increased conflict there.
  • Also in Israel, Netanyahu admitted that Israel was involved in an air strike against Syria on September 6.
  • NATO launched a new anti-Taliban offensive in Afghanistan.
  • A student was Tasered when confronting John Kerry in Florida about why he didn’t contest the 2004 election.
  • Jesse Jackson accused Barack Obama of “acting white” for failing to react to the violent “Jena 6”

Venus and Neptune are approaching an opposition which will be exact tomorrow, creating some confusion during this time that will make it more difficult to pursue the kind of self-examination required by the Mars/Pluto event. Although we are experiencing a heightened creativity now, there is also the possibility for delusion and confusion that combined with the bombastic verbal style of Mars in Gemini when opposed by Pluto could get us into trouble. Cultivating patience and attending to our creative and spiritual needs will assist in this process.
