Happy Birthday Uranus!

It was on March 13, 1781 that the patron planet of astrology was discovered by William Herschel. Although Uranus had been seen several times before by various astronomers, it had been perceived as a fixed star rather than a planet, and Herschel originally cited it as a comet. Uranus had to endure the unfortunate name “Herschel” until it was renamed Uranus in the period between 1791 and 1821.

Uranus is the only one of the planets to be named after a Greek god rather than a Roman one, and in fact there is no Roman counterpart to the god Uranus who is the sky god and represented the heavens themselves. This singularity of identity is reflected in the quality of the astrological Uranus to define our individuality and unique attributes.

Uranus was the father of Gaia’s many horrific children, including the Titans and the Cyclops as well as beings with fifty heads and a hundred arms. His disgust for these monsters mirrors the quality of Uranus to show where we seek perfection and where we are disgusted by that which is less than ideal.

As the god of the heavens, Uranus brings us information from beyond in ways that we cannot explain. Like sudden changes of weather that take place in the sky, Uranus brings sudden change and the awakening to new ways of thinking about things.

The excellent has the discovery chart with these comments:

Although Herschel had not initially realised the significance of his sighting, the chart is clearly meaningful. Its most striking feature is the T-square involving Uranus opposite Mars and Saturn, squared by the Sun. One may say that the Sun brought the new planet to light, and […]

In honor of International Women’s Day

I know many of my readers are women, so I wanted to celebrate today by encouraging you to check out . This is a wonderful way to support women all over the world by sponsoring a woman in a country that is suffering from war and poverty. For $28/month you can help a survivor of war to develop a new business and help to feed her family as well as offer her emotional support to become more fully empowered.

For the past three years I have sponsored four women, two in Rwanda and two in Afghanistan. Each year they graduate from the program and I meet four new ladies. We exchange letters and photos and I am able to learn a little more about their culture. It has really been a rewarding program and I hope that some of you will join. Women are the bedrock of society, and by helping to lift the circumstances of the women, the whole world can begin to change.

Saturn/Neptune loves a good conspiracy

With my Mercury in Scorpio and Pluto in the third house, I am always looking under the surface to see what’s really going on, looking for connections and information (Mercury/third house) that might be hidden or obscured by powerful authorities (Pluto/Scorpio). Until September 11 the Kennedy Assassination was the primary focus of my quest into conspiracy, but since that fateful day in 2001 a whole host of other mysteries have captured my interest, as my regular readers know.

Under the influence of the Saturn/Neptune cycle, that which has deceived or confused us (Neptune) is forced into physical reality (Saturn) or exposed, and the Saturn/Neptune opposition has brought back conspiracy questions about what really happened September 11. It is not surprising that at the five-year anniversary of September 11 in 2006, during the first phase of the current opposition cycle, the publicized their organization and the film Loose Change became the first conspiracy film on the event to hit the mainstream press.

Now, during the second phase of the opposition, we have news that both Aaron Brown of and Jane Standley of announced that building WTC-7 fell BEFORE it actually did fall. In both cases footage of the event shown simultaneous to the broadcast demonstrates that WTC-7 was still standing. Yet nowhere has this information been covered in the mainstream press. BBC has published a response, claiming that there was an error in the control room. An error that predicted the future? That is hard to believe.

The in the World Trade Center complex is one of the biggest mysteries of the September 11 event. The building wasn’t hit, and physics expert Steven Jones of Brigham Young University famously […]

Ann Coulter redux

The National Ledger has reprinted my article from last fall and updated it for her latest outrage. I found her to be a particularly interesting profile. Perhaps you will too! Check it out.

Grand Fire Trines and the Venus Kite

I confess, I don’t usually pay much attention to trines. Trines (120 degrees) are comfortable, they flow easily, they create harmonious situations in which things work well. Typically, in my experience, people don’t tend to notice these events. I always compare this to a comfortable temperature in a room. People may say “it’s hot in here!” or “it’s cold!” I have never heard anyone say “the temperature is really comfortable.” Grand Trines are particularly well-known for creating a complacency that can rob us of our energy, although this is less evident in the fire trines.

Nonetheless, the series of Grand Trines in Fire this month is getting a lot of buzz, and the initial phase is actually a Kite formation (click chart to enlarge) incorporating the Saturn/Neptune opposition which gives it a little more punch than it would otherwise have. Expansive Jupiter is nearing an exact trine to Saturn now which adds confidence and optimism to Saturn’s rather relentless restrictions, and this eases the pressure of Saturn on Neptune. The Jupiter/Saturn trine is a major planetary event that will hit no less than five times over the next two years! I’ll write more on this later, but the first exact connection between these two planets is March 16.

Lovely Venus is moving into formation to trine first Jupiter and then Saturn, creating a positive flow of open sharing and responsibility to others. The Kite formation is formed by the sextile of both Venus and Jupiter to Neptune which then opposes Saturn. Saturn in this case is the apex planet and the stabilizing force, adding the element of discipline and responsibility to the tremendous creativity that results from the combination of […]
