Pluto and the conspiracy of hate

I try to stay out of the mud on the internet, which isn’t easy to do when you have a very public blog.  But yesterday I listened to a podcast on This American Life that really disturbed me, about the conspiracy theories surrounding the Sandy Hook shooting and the abuse of the parents who lost children in that devastating event.  if you want to listen, and if you just want to browse.

I have to reveal before I go any further that I am a conspiracy minded person.  I believe that there was advance knowledge of 9-11. I was an early adopter of the Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, way back in the 1980s.  I believe that they are hiding something at Area 51.  I don’t get flu shots and while not anti-vax, I believe that information about vaccine safety is being withheld by the public.  Lots of conspiracy theories that were considered fringe elements at one time have turned out to be true, which makes it difficult to rationalize a lack of suspicion.  Cigarettes really do kill you, and manufacturers really did suppress information.  MK Ultra really did do mind control experiments on unsuspecting Americans.

But the problem with the rabbit hole of conspiracy is that once you go down it, it’s hard to know where the truth is.  When you don’t trust anything you read or hear, everything is suspect.

The abuse that has been piled on the parents of children who have died in school shootings, as well as the survivors of those shootings (such as “

Who is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? The astrological profile

Embed from Getty Images

This was originally posted in January 2019 but has been updated to reflect the availability of her birth time.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was recently elected to the US House of Representatives from the 14th District of New York – the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress.  Not only that, she is in the middle of her first Saturn Return.

The Saturn Return happens to each of us every 28-30 years when Saturn, traveling through its orbit around the Sun, returns to the degree of the sign that it holds in our natal astrological chart.  Because Saturn represents the virtues of hard work and achievement as well as the distress of tests and challenges, the Saturn Return is an important time and one in which we are often tested with experiences that may feel outside of our control.  But the Saturn Return can also be a time of great achievement and growth.  This is the period during which we realize that we have to grow up and start adulting, and this process is more comfortable for some than for others.  Some individuals find this too difficult, flaming out in their careers and shifting to another path, while some begin to achieve success during this time.

Recently I wrote about this crop of Saturn Return people who were born during the early 1990s when Uranus, Saturn and Neptune were all conjunct in Capricorn.  Here is an important takeaway from that article:

These periods can be very difficult, but for Saturn/Capricorn people they have the potential to be life changing in highly beneficial ways.  Many of the Capricorn stellium people, with the dreamy genius of Uranus/Neptune in their charts, have had difficulty coming to terms with the duality in their personalities between the creative inspiration of […]

My plan to revamp the US Healthcare system and add 14 years to your life!

This article was originally posted in 2008 and has been updated.

Under this week’s retrograde Mercury in Pisces, which has attached itself to travel companion Neptune over the next week, the William Barr Justice Department under President Trump has recommended repeal of the Affordable Care Act, generating a s*&#storm of panic and anxiety in the hearts of Americans.

The problem as I see it, though, is that the American healthcare system is completely broken.  It doesn’t really matter how healthcare is paid for – the system is based on profit and corrupt at its core.  It needs to be completely rebuilt.  Pluto, the planet of destruction and regeneration, is in the US second house of money and finance.  There has been a great deal of discussion among astrologers concerning how the US Pluto return over the next few years would affect the country, and perhaps this would be a good place to start.  Healthcare spending in the US was $17.9B in 2017, or $10,739 per person. as the average of other comparable first world countries (only Switzerland comes close).

Maintaining five healthy habits — eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, keeping a healthy body weight, not drinking too much alcohol, and not smoking — during adulthood may add more than a decade to life expectancy, according to a new study led by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Researchers also found that American women and men who maintained the healthiest lifestyles were 82 percent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease and 65 percent less likely to die from cancer when compared with those with the least healthy lifestyles over the course of the roughly […]

Michael Cohen and the US Pluto return

I realize that political posts can generate a great deal of animosity.  I will attempt to be as unbiased as possible in my political posts and stick to the astrology, but it’s likely that some bias will slip through. 

I have been writing a lot about the upcoming return of Pluto to its place in the astrological chart for the United States, and if you’re an avid consumer of astrological news you have probably read about this elsewhere as well.  Planetary returns (such as the Saturn return with which you might be familiar) are important cycles of change and evolution.  There are lunar returns every month, solar returns every year, Mars returns every two plus years, Saturn returns every 29 years, Uranus returns every 84 years, etc. and each type of return has a different quality and brings an emphasis on the agenda of that planet to the individual.

Because Pluto takes about 248 years to orbit the earth, humans do not experience Pluto returns.  However, nations can experience a Pluto return although very few national governments last that long.  The astrological chart for a nation is always a matter of hot debate among astrologers but that is a matter for another post.  Despite the debate on the specifics of which chart to use for the US, there is certainly agreement that we are heading into a time when the US will experience its first Pluto return after 248 years.

Astrologers have been speculating as to what this will mean.  The end of the US constitution?  The breakdown of the economic system, since Pluto occupies the second house of money in the most commonly used chart for the US?  Civil war?  So it was particularly chilling […]

What I believe: Can politics and astrology mix?

politics astrologyI have been writing this blog for a long time – since November 2005 to be exact.  During this time I’ve written over 2500 posts, and quite a few have been political in nature.  One of the things I enjoy exploring in these pages is how current astrological cycles affect humans on earth, and since politics is one big way that humans interact with each other it naturally seems to have a place in this commentary.

However, quite a few of my readers feel that there is no place for politics and astrology.  This reminds me of the late 1960s and the early 1970s when a conflict between the burgeoning spirituality movement collided with the burgeoning revolutionary movements, leading to the catchphrase “the personal IS political.”  Coincidentally (?), that time period was similar to the current one in that it followed a cycle of Uranus/Pluto and the associated revolution and upheaval.

Most astrologers appear to be more on the liberal end of the spectrum, although I suspect with the resurgence of traditional and ancient forms of astrology we are seeing more conservative astrologers who resonate more deeply with the writings of the ancients than the idea of transformation and letting go of outdated thoughts and ideas.  I tested this on my page and found that 10% of my readers lean to the conservative end of the spectrum, and 90% to the liberal end.

I believe that as an astrologer I have a duty to be as objective as possible when performing an analysis of an individual’s astrological chart and to use this information to educate and enlighten rather than to trash that individual or disrespect them.  That is sometimes a fine line to walk, especially in […]
