A new generation is called to power

I wondered for a long time why I was bothering with , but when I actually started using it I began discovering a plethora of fascinating sites and writers. One of these is Samuel F Reynolds, an astrologer from Brooklyn whose interesting blog Astrologers of color are not widely represented on the ‘net, and Samuel’s blog offers a fresh perspective on many different issues.

I particularly like his post “Get Up, Stand Up For your Rights: Uranus calls a new generation to power!”  Uranus was very important to my generation, the one that came of age in the 1960s as Uranus conjoined Pluto.  Now the generation that was born under that influence is coming into their power and authority, and we are heading into the next phase of the Uranus/Pluto cycle:  The opening square.

Samuel is talking though to a new generation: the Uranus in Scorpio generation born between 1974 and 1981. He writes (paragraph breaks added by me):

Like the Uranus in Virgo generation’s Y2K, we find you standing up amidst the buzz of another apocalypse: 2012.  Your generation may fear, as many generations have before, that they are the last generation.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  The true meaning of apocalypse is “revelation” or a “lifting of the veil.” What’s a more fitting image for a generation marked by Uranus in Scorpio, a sign known for managing secrets, than “lifting a veil.”

You’re the generation that unmasks the multiple Ponzi schemes of economics, philosophy, politics, religion and sexuality that have gone on too long.  There is a price to pay for unveiling the truth that the “emperor” has not been wearing any clothes for a long time.  You may not feel up to the task. You could become bogged […]

The Astrologer’s Journey, From the Inside Out


One of the phenomena of the Internet Age is that anyone can be an expert.  Unlike the dark ages of the 20th century when you had to publish a book to gain recognition and renown, now all you have to do is open a free Blogger or Word Press account, write stuff that is relatively fascinating, and soon you have a following.  This phenomenon has of course benefited me greatly, because here I am.  But many of the younger people that are learning about astrology on the internet are missing the opportunity to learn from the elders in the field.
Partly this may be because the field is changing so rapidly.  When I was beginning back in the early 1980s, I was on the cutting edge because I worked with Chiron.  In those days we were limited somewhat to what we could calculate by hand, although even then there were math wizards like John Addey who spent their time devising complex interplanetary aspects that were defined down to one-half a degree, called “harmonics.”  With computer technology becoming more and more advanced, it is simple to switch between Vedic and Western astrology with the touch of a mouse, and to calculate planetary positions of over 10,000 asteroids.
But just because we can do more things now and do them faster, does that mean we are more knowledgeable?  Do we understand the nature planets from the inside out?  Do we honor their wisdom and look to them for understanding, or do we merely try to manipulate them with mathematics?
John Townley has a sterling pedigree in the astrological community: he was the first to introduce the composite chart technique which is now in common use in […]

Ponzi Schemes and Astrologer

I have always felt that if the Universe wanted us to be able to predict the future, It wouldn’t have given us a life of mystery. The unfolding of the mystery and the ability to make choices every moment that affect the rest of our lives is a key part of our journey here.


An awareness of planetary cycles give us the ability to work with the planetary gods in order to maximize the potential of each cycle of change, but it doesn’t give us the ability to predict the future. The gods do not reward hubris, as Icarus discovered when he flew too close to the Sun, and as soon as we believe we are beyond the boundaries of time and space our wings are likely to melt and we will likely fall back to Earth.
So I was not surprised to seelinked from on the fall of Chartwell Enterprises:

CHARTWELL Enterprises used astrology to help predict stock market trends and profile investors, the Geelong Advertiser has learned.

The mystical learnings were explained as part of a system used for more than 20 years to global market trends, investors said.

The latest revelations follow a similar discovery on Tuesday that Graeme Hoy paid spiritual business planner Suzanne Goodchild an estimated $200,000 a year to help run the business.

Ms Goodchild confirmed she worked for Mr Hoy but refused to comment any further.

Open folders with investor details, seen by the Geelong Advertiser after staff rushed from the building following their sacking, showed a detailed analysis of star signs and what motivated an investor, from wealth creation to family and health.

“We were told it was part of the Gann investing system,” said one […]

Pluto in Virgo: The Slacker generation and the new fiscal conservatism

slackersGenerations of people can be defined by the sign that Pluto was traveling in at the time of the birth of that population group.  The Pluto in Leo generation, the “baby boomers,” are famous for being self-involved and self-important, as you would expect from a group that is compulsively driven (Pluto) to break through the barriers of the sign of Leo, the sign of the ego.  Pluto was in Virgo between 1958 and 1971, and that generation is now between 38 and 53 years old.

The generation defined by Pluto experiences a compulsive attention to matters described by the sign that Pluto falls in.  The Pluto in Cancer generation, parents to the Pluto in Leo boomers, gave up everything for their families (Cancer).  The Leo Boomers made self-expression into an art form.

Like all of the other signs of the zodiac, Virgo operates on many different levels but the underlying principle is a sense of order and attention to the mundane details of everyday life.  We therefore find Virgo representing our physical health and the connection between the mind and the body, our diet, service to others in assisting them in their daily life, and the day-to-day work experiences that provide the income to sustain us.

Demographers often call this generation “Generation X,” which was also called the “Slacker” generation, and report that this was the first generation in the United States to earn less than the previous generation.  As “Slackers,” this generation embraced grunge rock and rejected the pull of materialism.  Perhaps aware on some level that the world was about to change, many of them went from job to job and thought about career completely differently from any other previous generation.  Forget the college degree…forget the 30 years and the […]

Mercury Retrograde and financial news

Mercury turned retrograde yesterday, and the stock markets all over the world responded today with the expected reversal that usually occurs during Mercury Rx periods.  In the US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average appears to have peaked around January 6 when Mercury (communication and ideas) began separating from Jupiter (optimism and opportunity) and reality began to beckon.  Mercury, now appearing to travel backwards from our perspective on earth (retrograde motion) will approach another conjunction to Jupiter on January 15th when it will be trined by the Moon.  This is a time when we will want to feel optimistic with the Moon there adding an emotional craving to the Jupiterian optimism.  Will that be enough to drive some life into the markets?

And what about the economic stimulus package that Barack Obama is rushing through Congress?  Thankfully, it looks like Congress will not deliver this bill until early February, well after Mercury turns direct.  But will a stimulus package be enough to overcome the mood of fear that Pluto in Capricorn has wrought?  The New York Times wrote, “the biggest obstacle to economic activity right now is not a shortage of money. The real obstacle is pervasive fear, which has made banks reluctant to lend and companies reluctant to invest in expansion.”

Expansion = Sagittarius, now gone and replaced by Capricornian conservatism and caution.  Now is not the time for more lending and more borrowing – now is a time for building, for investing in something that you can smell and taste.  Capricorn isn’t interested in swap derivatives; it likes buildings, bridges, highways.  Practical stuff that will last for generations.  In this respect Obama’s vision is aligned with the astrological reality.

Mid-January looks like it might have some nice possibilities for investors, with the Mercury/Jupiter conjunction and a harmonious aspect (sextile) […]

Saving the Economy: Capricorn vs. Sagittarius

As most of you know who read this blog regularly, Pluto has just transitioned from the optimism sign of Sagittarius to the practical sign of Capricorn.  Since Pluto presides over issues of death and endings we have seen some real chaos in our financial systems as we move from a process where blind faith (Sagittarius) creates results to a process where the foundations must be solid in order to achieve success (Capricorn).

, an Aries with a lot of fire in his chart, convinced Congress while Pluto was still in Sagittarius to have faith in him, to believe in what he was doing (both excellent Sagittarian qualities) rather than present a solid plan for success which would have been a more Capricornian style.  Throwing money at a problem to generate more optimism may be what worked while Pluto was in Sagittarius, but under the Capricorn influence more details are required which is why his $700bn bailout plan will not work.

Capricorn is all about building something lasting for future generations, and as I wrote back in August of 2007, the infrastructure in the US and around the world is in desperate need of rebuilding.  As I wrote last year:

The buzz around this issue makes it clear that the need to rebuild the infrastructures on which we depend for our daily lives is going to be a highlight of the upcoming Pluto in Capricorn period. Capricorn is associated with the structures of society and building itself. Dams, bridges, tunnels, subways – many of these were built over 100 years ago with little or no improvements over the years. The failure of the levees in New Orleans were the first reminder that the old infrastructures were in danger, but little attention was paid.

The […]
