A new generation is called to power

By | 2010-07-02T14:20:55+00:00 July 2nd, 2010|Astrology|

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

By | 2009-12-04T16:58:36+00:00 December 4th, 2009|Astrology|

astrologer.jpg

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

By | 2018-08-04T08:46:20+00:00 November 10th, 2009|Money and markets|

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.

ponzi.jpg

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

By | 2016-11-12T07:24:07+00:00 May 6th, 2009|Generations, Life|

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

By | 2009-01-12T06:48:01+00:00 January 12th, 2009|Money and markets, Planetary cycles|

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

By | 2008-12-08T20:33:26+00:00 December 8th, 2008|Money and markets|

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 […]

The Astrology of the Democratic Convention

By | 2008-08-25T13:58:43+00:00 August 25th, 2008|Politics|

The two overriding planetary aspects shadowing the Democratic National Convention over the next few days ia a long-term conjunction of Chiron (wounding and healing) to the North Node (the ascending point where the path of the Moon crosses the path of the Sun around the Earth, from our perspective on Planet Earth).  The North Node is not a planet, but in astrology it symbolizes the path of our future evolution. The conjunction of Chiron to the North Node began back in June and will continue through October.

The North Node opposes the South Node (the descending point on the path of the Sun), so an aspect to one point affects the other point as well.  The South Node denotes the past – issues and ideas that hold us back from evolving towards our destiny.  Chiron right now is therefore opposite the South Node, where it is challenging and opening old wounds from the past that are keeping us from moving forwards towards our soul’s true purpose.

This conjunction takes place in Aquarius, the sign of the collective and the urge for change, social justice, and living a life of authenticity and freedom.  One could argue that the Democratic party is ruled by these Aquarian principles of change and equality, so it is not surprising that the Convention, falling under this Chiron/Node conjunction, is opening old wounds of party issues.  The Clinton/Obama rivalry which many hoped was behind us is now heating up to a boiling point, and questions of rivalries between men and women, between those of different races, and between generations are rupturing as old wounds fester and come to the surface.  This is Chiron’s work: to bring the old wounds to the surface of our awareness so that they can be […]

The Danger of “Financial Astrology”

The Millennial Generation

By | 2008-02-20T12:36:00+00:00 February 20th, 2008|Generations|

We’ve been talking in these pages about the generational impacts of this year’s presidential election, including the early boomers (Pluto in Leo), late boomers and generation X (Pluto in Virgo) and generation Y (Pluto in Libra). Each group as a generation carries the impulses of the sign that Pluto was in. But there is another generation, commonly considered to have born since 1982, that many writers are calling the Millennial generation, presumably because they came of age at the turn of the 21st century.

Pluto in Scorpio, the sign which it rules, brought with it the scourge of AIDS (death by sex, both Plutonian/Scorpionic trademarks) along with a flood of repressed memories (Pluto digs out debris from the subconscious) about sexual abuse. Pluto and its sign Scorpio rule over the domain of death, destruction, regeneration and sexuality and the elimination of waste products from our lives that no longer serve us. The Pluto in Scorpio generation, now termed the “Millenials,” are more prone to suicide than any generation before them. They experience the traumatic side of life more deeply – as one Millennial says:

We’re realizing early on that “everything we want” – marriage, family, a good job, comfortable finances – doesn’t come with a warranty. We watched our parents get divorced and laid off, so we’re not exactly starry-eyed about adult commitments, and don’t see many good reasons to stick around.

Plus, while we readily indulge in around-the-world adventures, we’re inundated by images of war, corrupt politics, a sick Earth, and distant family and friends. Frequent travel and jobs abroad are popular among my friends – always on to the newer and wilder thing – but the adventures are often accompanied by loneliness, disconnect, and disappointment, which often worsens upon returning.

Where the Pluto in Virgo generation tends towards […]

Saturn in Virgo September 2007 – October 2009

By | 2007-08-16T11:35:00+00:00 August 16th, 2007|Planetary cycles|

perfectionistOn September 2, Saturn moves into Virgo where it will bring its trademark influences of restraint, discipline, structure, disappointment, limitation, and karmic lessons. Saturn has a natural affinity for Virgo and its cautious nature and love of service and work, and Saturn in Virgo periods can be very productive ones.

Saturn is far less compatible with Leo, the fiery sign of ego, leadership and drama. When in Leo, Saturn tends to quash these traits and undermine those who appear to be in control. “Who’s in Charge?” Saturn in Leo asks, and demands that true leadership take the place of empty figureheads.

Saturn takes 2-1/2 years to pass through a sign, implementing its trademark role as the Celestial Taskmaster through the areas that are important to each sign. In Virgo, Saturn’s tests move into in the area of health and service and encourage us to live dutifully and honorably. Saturn in Virgo demands organization and resists impulse, requiring us to live practically and cautiously with a high regard for our own safety and security and that of those around us.

While Saturn is well suited to Virgo’s strong desire for improvement and perfection, it is less comfortable for the other mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces) which prefer a life with more flexible options. As Saturn travels through Virgo it will create problems for those of us with planets in the mutable signs unless we stick to the lesson plan that Saturn requires.

Virgo tends to be a more conservative sign, and with Saturn in Virgo we may see a trend towards conservation that is quieter than Saturn in Leo’s flamboyant “Live Earth” concerts. Oil conservation has been associated with Virgo over the years, and automobiles are likely to become more practical and air […]
