In the shadow of Saturn

By | 2011-09-09T16:38:02+00:00 September 9th, 2011|Astrology in my world, Saturn Return|

and I met for lunch yesterday and commiserated on our upcoming Saturn Returns – although we are a year about, our Saturns are close to the same degree and we both are in the shadow of the Saturn Return right now.  I hadn’t read her blog from Wednesday where she posted this amazing photo of Saturn from NASA’s :

Saturn’s Shadow (Nasa APOD)

There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about the second Saturn Return.  Someone I know insisted to me the other day that the Saturn Return lasts from age 58 to 62.  Clients will often call me when Saturn enters the sign that their Saturn falls in, thinking that is the time of the Saturn Return.  A few years ago a client became extremely angry with me when I suggested that her second Saturn Return would not have the same horrific impact that the first Saturn Return did.

Because Saturn’s role is to teach us how to be responsible adults, the first Saturn Return can be exceptionally difficult.  Some of us don’t want to be adults yet at that age and we resist the lessons, and have to deal with the resulting consequences. Many of you know that I have come to think of Saturn as a mentor; to me this image is more accurate and less fear-inducing than the “Celestial Taskmaster” that we usually use for Saturn.  The voice of Saturn within us tells us when we really know we could do better; sometimes it comes from outside of us instead.  Under Saturn transits we may experience financial losses or the famous delays and disappointments in putting our dreams in motion.  Saturn requires patience […]

Updated!! The astrology of Chaz Bono and the Aquarian Age

By | 2016-10-09T09:06:17+00:00 September 5th, 2011|Age of Aquarius, People|

Chaz Bono astrologyAt the age of 42 Chaz Bono has joined the cast of the television program “Dancing with the Stars” – an event which has caused widespread controversy and brought his recent gender reassignment surgery into the forefront of the news.

Update: Astrotheme has a 12:55 am birth time for Chaz Bono which has been identified as part of the Steinbrecher collection which is highly reliable.  I’ve edited the article to add some information based on this time of birth.

When you start to pay attention you will be amazed at how many newsmakers are in key astrological cycles.  28-29: the Saturn return.  41-42: the Uranus opposition.  So without even looking at Bono’s chart we can see that he is in the middle of a dramatic life cycle, the Uranus opposition, that inspires a radical departure from anything in his life where he is not feeling true to himself.

Chaz Bono was born as a woman named Chastity Sun Bono March 4, 1969 (time unknown) in Los Angeles, California.  His Sun is in Pisces, the sign of the shapeshifter – the one who yearns for peace, tranquility, and beauty.  Pisces is the most mutable of the water signs and like water, it tends to adapt to fit the container  in which it finds itself.   This sometimes makes it more difficult for Pisces Sun people to know with certainty who they really are.

Bono, a former lesbian, says she realized she was gay at puberty and came out to her parents at the age of 18.  I have written about the effect of Uranus in the chart in gender issues, and here we see a tight conjunction of Jupiter (representing […]

Astrology in my world: the Black Moon Lilith

By | 2018-08-22T08:13:56+00:00 September 2nd, 2011|Astrology in my world|

Maybe it’s because I am heading into the vortex of my second Saturn return (three degrees away it already is a doozy!), or maybe it’s because my progressed Mercury is getting ready to turn direct after being retrograde for many years.  In any case, I have been expanding my astrological repertoire, something I haven’t done since… well, really – ever.

When I started working with charts in the early 1980s Chiron was already on the scene and he hopped right into my charts and started speaking quite loudly.  But despite the fact that I was studying goddess archetypes at the time, the other asteroids didn’t talk to me and in fact seemed to clutter the chart, making it more difficult for me to read the essence of what the chart had to say.

Last spring I stumbled on which is a wealth of information for the intermediate and advanced astrologer.  I have been working with her on advanced progression techniques and since she works with all of the asteroids PLUS the Vertex and Black Moon Lilith, I am slowly but surely getting more comfortable with adding all of these points back into the chart.  I am particularly fascinated with the Black Moon Lilith since that point conjoins Pluto and the south node in my chart and explains some traumatic events I experienced as a child and horrific memories that seep in from previous lifetimes.  Here is about the Black Moon Lilith.

From what I have gathered so far, and I am embarking on a study project on the Black Moon, that this point relates to a primal rage and terror and power that exists in its raw form, unlike […]

Mars and the London Riots

By | 2011-08-10T08:21:32+00:00 August 10th, 2011|Crime|

Disaffected young people have been rioting in England since the shooting on August 4th of a young suspect (Mark Duggan, age 29 and in his Saturn Return) during an arrest for gun crime in Tottenham in North London.  The riots began as a peaceful protest in Tottenham and escalated to full spread rioting and vandalism, spreading to other areas of London as well as Liverpool, Manchester and other working class cities in England.

Mars entered Cancer on August 4th.  In the emotionally sensitive sign of Cancer, Mars can be very touchy and reactive and as soon as Mars entered Cancer it began to form challenging aspects to Uranus (radical and rebellious activity) and Pluto (death and transformation of the power centers).  As you know if you’ve been reading this blog, we are just entering a four-year period in which Uranus and Pluto will be challenging each other in the sky, during which rebellion (Uranus) against the power structures (Pluto) is somewhat inevitable.

This is the opening square of a cycle of these two planets that began in the 1960s when Uranus and Pluto conjoined in Virgo.  At the time there was a tremendous rebellion against the conservative values (Virgo) of the 1950s and a great deal of pressure to create a new culture of freedom (Uranus).  In order to create something completely new, often something old must be destroyed.

The square (90 degree) aspect creates a crisis that must be resolved, so with Uranus in Aries in a square to Pluto in Capricorn any areas of the world in which liberty (Uranus) for the individual (Aries) is being subjugated by the power elite (Pluto) and the structures that embody that power (Capricorn), the planetary atmosphere is such that conflict is sure […]

The Decline of the American Empire

By | 2016-10-08T11:05:06+00:00 August 8th, 2011|Favorite posts, Politics|

decline of america

Last week I wrote about the Sibley chart that I and most other astrologers use for the United States as a preface for this series since this is the chart I am using to track the change of fortune for the US.  The Sibley chart shows Sagittarius rising, with the Sun in Cancer in a wide conjunction to Jupiter in the seventh house of alliances and open enemies.

Since I mentioned writing this article, the US debt was downgraded for the first time in American history by the Standard & Poor rating index.  (Let’s ignore for the time being the irony of the fact that it was errors in the methodology of S&P’s and other rating agencies that got us into this mess with the subprime mortgage debacle.)

I’ll save an exhaustive analysis of the Sibley chart for another post, but it’s important to note a few things before discussing the situation today. The Sagittarius ascendant in the US chart reflects the expansive tendency of the American empire which is probably the single thing that will be its undoing.  Like other empires before it, the expansion of the national identity (Sagittarius ascendant) through ideas like “Manifest Destiny” which inspired pioneers to trek across the undeveloped terrain and do battle with the native peoples and Mexicans and Canadians who were already living on the land.

This relentless push for expansion tends to weaken the underpinnings of a nation, as we can see in the history of the Roman, the Russian and the British empires, the great empires of our age. During the period from 1995 to 2008, when Pluto transited through Sagittarius bringing globalized governments and corporations, it appeared to some that the expansion of […]

Amy Winehouse, dead at 27

By | 2011-07-23T20:17:40+00:00 July 23rd, 2011|People, Saturn Return|

Amy Winehouse dead The number of musicians who have died at age 27 (putting her in the sadly named “27 Club”) has just increased by one.  Amy Winehouse died Saturday July 23 of a drug overdose at her home in London.

I profiled Amy Winehouse back in 2007:

Amy Winehouse is a Virgo (see chart), the sign known for its reticent and modest behavior which just shows how little validity Sun Sign astrology has. There is another brand of Virgo which some call the “Radical Virgo” in which the famous Virgo powers of analysis and perfectionism are combined with other elements in the chart to create a more reactionary personality. Amy’s chart shows six planets in fire signs which keep her locked forever in a battle between the conservative side of her Virgo nature and the urge that the fire element evokes for a freer life.

Her Sun is squared by Neptune, the planet that dissolves the boundaries of ordinary reality. While this combination stimulates tremendous creativity, there can also be difficulty establishing boundaries and confusion over one’s own identity as defined by the Sun. Neptune conjoins her Moon which is another significator for creative brilliance as well as musical ability, but again there is a struggle to keep one’s feet on the ground. This strong Neptunian signature often suggests an individual who is either a saint or a drunk as the desire to transcend reality can go in either direction. …

This conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus is opposed by Chiron, a small planet in the Kuyper belt that signifies the Wounded Healer. When in a difficult aspect to other planets, Chiron indicates a deep psycho-emotional wound that doesn’t heal, but which ultimately serves as the guide to […]

The astrology of the Oslo bombing

By | 2011-07-23T16:15:29+00:00 July 23rd, 2011|Crime|

Oslo bombing astrologyOn Friday July 22nd at 3:26 pm local time, a bomb ripped through government building in Oslo.  This attack was followed by the murder of 87 people at a Labor Party youth camp not far away.

The chart for Norway originates in its independence from Sweden on June 7, 1905 at 11:00 am local time in Oslo.  The astrology for the day of the bombings is rather startling.  Mars was sitting on the South Node last week and astrologer Martin Davis wrote on his Facebook page:

Astrologers: Note that Mars [anger] is coming to conjoin the South Node [past issues] now. This is a difficult combination – often in disaster charts. This conjunction in airy Gemini correlates with angry budget discussions, angry American football contract discussions and the uncovering of newspaper [Gemini] wrong doings. It’s on the natal Mars of any July 4th US chart. Buckle up when driving.

As we now know the US chart wasn’t affected (except by the angry budget discussions part) but the bombing in Oslo occurred when the conjunction of transiting Mars and the South Node was exactly conjunct Pluto in the Norway national chart.  At the same time, transiting Chiron was exactly conjunct the South Node in the Norway chart.

The young man who committed this horrific crime, Anders Breivik, was born February 13, 1979 (time unknown).  His Sun is conjunct Mars and Mercury in the idealistic sign of Aquarius.  Aquarius is often concerned with ideas of Utopia.  Uranus is square to those Aquarius planets, giving him a big does of Aquarian/Uranian Utopia and the need for revolutionary activity.  His Virgo Moon conjoins Saturn suggesting that he is accustomed to working alone.

Supporting this theme of the “Loner” is the singleton Venus in the […]

Solar Return for the US, July 2011

By | 2017-07-04T08:10:19+00:00 July 4th, 2011|Politics|

Fourth of July astrologyAny person, place or event with a date of origination has an astrological chart. Humans have birthdates, companies have incorporation dates, and countries have their own dates of origination (we call this “mundane” astrology). Mundane charts are not always easy to define since we must accurately pinpoint the exact time at which the current incarnation of the place began.

The chart for the United States that is most typically used is called the Sibley chart which uses a date of July 4, 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was signed, and has Sagittarius on the ascendant (Sagittarius “rising”).   Another chart used by many astrologers is the Scorpionic chart, with Scorpio rising that uses a date of November 15, 1777 when the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union were signed.   Other charts use the date that the Constitution was signed.

In any case, the Solar Return chart for the Sibley chart of the United States (the chart cast for the moment in time when the Sun in the sky returns to its place in the birthchart) suggests that this will be another difficult year for the US.   Libra is rising in the chart at 5 degrees and the Midheaven of the chart is 5 degrees Cancer.  Uranus, planet of revolution and innovation, is nearly exactly opposite the Libra ascendant at 4-1/2 degrees Aries, and Pluto, planet of destruction and rebirth, is within ONE MINUTE of an oppositition to the Midheaven on the I.C.

So what does this mean in English?  Probably, continued conflict between the People (the I.C.) and the Government (the Midheaven) and surprising events (Uranus) that come from other, probably renegade, nations.  This could take the form of attacks on our troops in other […]

The astrology of the Royal Wedding

By | 2011-04-29T07:02:18+00:00 April 29th, 2011|People, Relationships|

Royal Wedding astrologyI confess I’m not that interested in the Royal Wedding that occurs today. I wasn’t that interested in Charles and Diana’s wedding either, even though that wedding had much more of the pomp and circumstance that we associate with royalty than the more modern wedding of William and Kate.

But then I read my friend and the whole situation became much more interesting.  Some of the interesting facts about the royal wedding according to Kathryn:

  • The wedding date occurs on the eve of the Beltane festival, also called the Festival of Unification.
  • The ascendant for the chart of the Coronation of William in 1066, the birth of England, is at 21.57 Aries. At the time of the wedding, Jupiter (“planet of Faith and Kings” ) will be at 21.56 Aries and will cross the ascendant of the 1066 chart just after the ceremony.
  • Mars (the defender) conjoins Jupiter (the Faith) at 21 degrees Aries on the wedding day.

predicts that because of the Mars/Jupiter conjunction you will see “lots of people wearing red or shades of it” (red is the color of Mars).  Sure enough, William will wear to the wedding.

With Jupiter sitting right on the Midheaven of his chart, Prince William was born to the throne, but Neptune on his ascendant makes it more difficult for him to know who he really is.  (.)This makes him more malleable and easy to manipulate, which in some ways may be a desirable attribute for a royal character who is really a figurehead for the country.  He’s extremely sensitive, with the Sun conjunct Moon in emotional Cancer, and was very connected to […]

Musings on the Arizona shooting (preliminary)

By | 2011-01-09T13:43:39+00:00 January 9th, 2011|Crime|

The shooting yesterday of Gabrielle Giffords yesterday along with seventeen others, which left six people dead including a child who, in curious synchronicity, was born on September 11th, has had a profound effect on Americans everywhere.  Unlike the other mass killings that we have seen in the past few years, this one was motivated by political rage and for that reason it epitomizes the fury in the American political system that has become a cancer in American life.

Progressed Mars in the (Sibley) chart for the United States turned retrograde in the summer of 2006, and as we look back we can see that it was at that point, with the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld, that the country as a whole recognized that the war in Iraq was a massive fiasco.  I believe that this was the turning point in American military power, and that as long as the US progressed Mars is retrograde (which will be for quite a long time to come) American military force will need to revamp its strategy in the face of the new global realities.

The chart for the United States has a challenging square of Saturn to the Sun.  This aspect, in any chart, requires mastery in order to achieve greatness.  Sagittarius is rising in the US chart, bestowing the innate optimism and sense of entitlement of the Jupiter rulership.  But Saturn is always there, necessitating that the hard work be done before the luck of Jupiter can be manifested.  The solar eclipse on January 4th at 13 Capricorn opposed the US Sun which is 13 Cancer, and it also squared the US Saturn at 14-15 Libra.

The other significant national astrological event is that the US is in its Saturn return right now.  The last US Saturn Return was in 1981 […]
