A few months ago I was asked to express my view of the key issue facing 2014, in as few words as possible.  It took me some pondering, while looking through the difficult aspects still looming over the night sky for the year to zoom into what would make a difference in my opinion.  With Uranus still hanging on to its fingertips to Pluto and Jupiter, and seeing that the results and benefits from these aspects in the past few years, has not been anything spectacular to write home about.  My first impression is that the year will be a roller coaster ride with many highs and many lows.  Full of excitements and thrills and with moments of fear and anxiety instill with the anticipation that something good and successful is around the next corner.  Uranus, the co-ruler to Aquarius with the planet Saturn, is considered the higher spiritual octave of Mercury.  The planet is associated with change, revolution, invention, inspiration, freedom and the inner awakening of the spirit and the soul.  It is the adaptability of Uranus to cleverly adjust to change combined with Pluto’s ability to regenerate, transform, and create, that anything we sincerely are committed to at this time will be more rewarding and will succeed beyond our expectations.  How we as a global community and individually adjust, react and improvise and work with the change will be the key and the hallmark to our success and accomplishments for the coming year.

 

The Oxford English Reference dictionary defines the word change as the following; 1.) The act or the instance of making or becoming different.  2.) An alteration or modification (a change in the person’s expression, thinking or way of dress.  3.) A new experience.  4.) The substitution of one thing for another: an exchange.  Having my Sun in Taurus makes it very hard for me to tolerate or make changes easily.  I find it more pleasant and comfortable to continue doing things as they have always been done by me.  I realize I am not alone in feeling or reacting in this way, but with these difficult and trying aspects that have been with us for a while.  We need to explore new avenues of approach, if we don’t want to fall into the same traps and difficulties we have been experiencing.  Although I may prefer not to experience change or something new, I am aware that any kind of change in one’s lifestyle seems to help to jumpstart one’s imagination, and at the same time it seems to have the power to shape a situation or idea before it is manifested into reality.  A new experience seems to show one what one wants or does not want, in order to point the way to what one truly desires.  Change also reveals what experiences exist at the moment, not necessarily what one wants to end up with.  One does not study or analyze change, one just goes with it.  One needs to experience change in its context, and to use change to create change.

 

As we experience this coming year as a global community or individually, we need to live and be in the moment.  To go with the flow and to begin to see where it takes us, before we put up our defenses and arguments.  As the global discontent, unrest and distress is spreading, we need to go within our own thoughts and emotions, to see what disgruntlement is seething within us, in order to implement the changes that are needed to bring us in harmony with ourselves.  For as long as we are unhappy with our state of affairs we will not be in the right frame of mind to make the right choices and to determine the changes that are needed.  Our key to success for the coming year will be determined by how well we meet and handle the challenges and obstacles that are placed on our path.  Our attitude and the way we deal with the situation will determine the success we will encounter, and whether a transformation will be in progress.  We need to realize that the energies and vibrations from Uranus and Pluto are here to be a help to each one of us and not a hindrance.  These two planets give us the ability to acclimatize, improvise, invent and to create the world we are willing to call our own.  We need to work with and to be open to the changes and to allow and welcome the transformation and the regeneration that will follow.      

“Pluto Being Reassigned May Be the Writing on the Wall?”

The interest in and the study of astrology has always been viewed in the recent past by the general public with curiosity and suspicion about the sanity of the individual practicing this art of divination.  A casual interest in the subject matter may be considered fashionable and tolerable at various times in our modern world, but never necessarily, mainstream.  These same skeptics can’t wait to hear what you have to say, especially, if what you are commenting on is about them.  If your interpretation of who they are is not as how they see it, you will be immediately told without any hesitation.  If what you say hits a chord, you may never know about it, as it may confirm that your interest may not be so crazy, after all.  One of my many cynics and critics came up to me after Pluto was declared by the scientific society that it was no longer considered a planet, with a sense of triumph in his grin.  Does that mean that astrology is all bunk after all, with Pluto being pushed to the back of the shelf?  He said it loud and clear for all to hear with a look of satisfaction of one who has won an argument.  I quickly replied with a very affirmative no, without any further explanation, as I was certain the justification of my answer would not be heard or understood at the moment.

 I have always worked with the modern planets, as a support to the seven planets, in the same way as I was taught by my first teacher.  She understood from her spiritual teachings that Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were the higher spiritual octaves of Mercury, Venus and Mars as the transforming essence and energy in permitting us to understand and to work with their world.  Without them we would be spiritually and creatively bankrupt, and would not understand the meaning of originality, change, love, beauty, action, and intent, etc.  This always made sense to me as I have always thought that without Uranus’s adaptability for change and originality, Mercury’s gift as a messenger and a communicator would be lost.  How would we understand or see the beauty and the compassion of Venus, if Neptune’s ability to imagine, to dream and to see beyond the box wasn’t there to help us to see beyond edges of reality?  Mars needs to assert, to generate action, but without Pluto, how are we to realize or understand that these actions can renew, reintegrate, regenerate and possibly transform us?  Pluto with its intent and intensity helps us to go beyond what we think are our limitations, and see what is beyond the horizon.  These planets help the others to fully be themselves as they are the go between the mundane and the spiritual worlds.

 Since I have always believed everything is connected spiritually in this world, as above, so below.  I began wondering if there was a spiritual correspondence or a message for us for Pluto being reassigned from a Planet to a dwarf planet?  Was this a sign or the writing on the wall, an omen of what will come to pass?  By recasting Pluto in the night sky, are we putting the energies of rejuvenation and transformation on the back shelves?  At first I didn’t want to admit or believe it, but through observations I realized that we have created devises to make our lives easier and give us more time, but the reverse has happen.  We have become so overwhelmed with text messages, emails and the need to experience all the new gadgets.  This leaves little time for oneself and the moments of contemplation and leisure to allow us to renew, reinvent, revitalize and transform our inner being.  In turn it gives us little time to share these moments with our closess companions and friends.  In coming to this conclusion and revelation I hope and pray that the writing on the wall is for the better in that we learn to take time out and use the energies of Pluto for our benefit.  Not to allow these assets and energies to lie dormant on the back shelf of all the things we want to get done.  As the saying goes “use it or lose it.”  

“With the Aspects of Uranus, Pluto and Saturn, the Keywords are Trusting Change!”

Image

Being a western astrologer, who has an unquenchable thirst and curiosity about everything, I tend to incorporate every system I am aware of, in my analysis, to come to some truth that makes sense, to me.  Since, I strongly believe that everything and that means everything, is somehow connected and yet independent of one another, that every system has it its truths and connections.  So why not, use whatever makes sense at the moment to come to the truth or as close to the reality, as possible?  It was obvious to me when I realized that 2013 was the year of the snake in the Chinese system, that I needed to understand in my own way, what that really meant.  What did the snake represent and mean to me and how did it relate to my western thoughts?  What astrological planet seems to represent this creature God created?  Was there a planet or planets in the western system that said it all, without a thousand words connected with it?  It came to me in my contemplation that Uranus, Pluto and Saturn fitted the bill.  Was I right?  As the year is almost over, I must say that the Universe filled me with the right inspiration, and with the aspects of the planets to one another, only confirms that the keywords for the year and forever, is to trust that change will be ever constant.

 Was this a revelation and a pivotal point in my thinking?   A definite yes, would fill the room and for miles around.  Why, you may ask?  Being human and with my Sun in Taurus, I am happy to have things stay the same way forever.  Change of any kind tends to interrupt the habit and routine I am comfortable with.  That is probably one of the reasons I began my studies into astrology, it was to anticipate what might be in store for me and to work with it.  This has helped me to foresee, but it never has made me feel comfortable with the changes or the disruptions it bought into my life.  I always felt hesitant and worry when I saw difficult aspects, or what I thought to be trying times about to arrive at my door step.  Once I began to realize and to accept that change is ever constant, a new attitude has developed in me, and that I am always were I need to be.  And that change of any kind is what I need to look forward to, instead of seeing change like mercury retrograde, which I might feel apprehensive about as it is about to begin its sojourn through the night sky.  Seeing change as constant is like seeing the necessity of sleep in one’s life.  I have come to the eye-opener that the success or failure in making the change in our lives is not as important as what we learn from the experience and the moment.  To realize that life as the I Ching has always stated in its hexagrams that change is always constant.  That we can always depend and trust that change is ever with us.  By learning to work with it, we will learn to create the life we want.   

“Attainment is Passion Mixed With Knowledge Says the 18 Gemini New Moon on June 8th 2013”

Gemini_2
As the year subtly unfolds, one can observe through the weather patterns, the political situations, and the financial climate, something is amiss. The writing is on the wall or should I said in the stars, if only we could decipher without any illusions, what is about to befall us. With three eclipses right in a row behind us, the forceful energies of these aspects should be as clear as night and day. Our ability to see the true circumstances of our situation is hindering our perceptions, our understandings and our accomplishments. In the age of the computers we no longer see eclipses as messages and signs from the Universe to help predict what the months ahead will hold. In this climate, the 18 Gemini New Moon on June 8th 2013 at 8:55 am PDT is saying that any attainment is made up of passion mixed with knowledge. An old planetary aspect the kite seldom talked about involving Venus and Pluto is reminding us that reason and knowledge mixed with wisdom and passion is the only way to create those things that will rejuvenate our being, but it is important to persevere to the end. We need to stay the course even when we see the end, in sight.

The Sabian symbol for the 18th and 19th degree of Gemini is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Gemini 18 Two Chinese men talking Chinese This is a symbol of an everyday exclusiveness on the intellectual side of experience, the individual strengthened not as much by actual distinctiveness, as by a continual co-operation with fellow enthusiasts in various special area of interest. A species of uniqueness is idealized as a corrective for self-diffusion. There are here the potentials of high erudition and of an exceptional refinement of the personality along original or unusual lines. The keyword is difference. When positive, the degree is the effective mobilization of self and others for life’s more specialized objectives, and when negative, a thorough dissipation of selfhood through alien relationships.

Gemini 19 A large archaic volume This is a symbol of the ultimate indestructibility of experience, so that any path once traversed may be taken again with a greater ease and a broader self-discovery. There is here the assurance of illimitable resources in wisdom, and the suggestion that this heritage may be made manifest at any time in an immediate and practical guidance. The past always provides an illumination of the present, and man achieves best as he cultures a real sense of obligation to his own roots. The keyword is background. When positive, the degree is a special capacity for the recovery of prior advantages or the effective disentanglement of present involvements, and when negative, a slavish worship of tradition and authority.

This symbol speaks to learning and obtaining knowledge, but is it intimating that knowledge is power? Or is it asking us that we need to put this knowledge to good use? That knowledge alone stored up, is like old books on the shelf, never being read. Knowledge like any procession needs to be worked and used. This new moon is telling us we need to take what we learn and what we believe in, and mix it with our passion to create the world we want. That passion is the fire under our knowledge that will kick start new ideas into the realities we are searching for. That passion keeps us going when hope is thin, and will also see us through to the finish line. At the same time that we nourish our ability to learn, we need to nourish the right passions to keep us going when the going gets rough. This moon phase is reminding us that our thoughts are the foundation of who we are, but without the actions, it does nothing. It is telling us to walk our talk, if only for our own edification and approval. That any attainment we achieve will be a mixture of passion, wisdom, knowledge and reason.

“Is it Wiser to Allow the Promise of the Natal Chart to Unfold or to Help it Along?”

3mf3pe3ld5Q55X65S4a6gc54cf5463c1c1528
Transits that aspects the natal chart, especially the eclipses, has always been of interest to me, in the ways the individuals effected by the aspect, experiences the moment. In this day and age, I feel so many things are vying for our attention that we sometimes miss the opportunities that present themselves. Also I have always wondered whether our foreknowledge of the events, might make us vulnerable by manipulating the outcome and not necessarily to what, the Universe had in store for us. Are we creating the results we want to come to pass, and not because they were suppose to happen? The upcoming solar eclipse in May, I feel is a significant one and I wanted to examine a chart to see whether it was wiser to allow the promise of the transit to unfold, or to help it along. And whether our expectations and our ego might not only color the consequences, but hinder it, from the full potential of its manifestation.

Ask, and the Universe will answer. I came across an individual where the individual felt the subtle beneficial aspect of the upcoming eclipse was already beginning to show signs it was fulfilling its promises, as it was affecting the seventh and the tenth house matters. This was exciting to me as the prediction seem already beginning to unfurl like a whirlwind, as indicated by the aspects. The eclipse sits on the individual’s descendant trine Pluto in the Tenth conjunct Uranus. This alone is a picture with a thousand words. My first teacher emphasized that in certain cases the effect of an eclipse may be felt by some six months ahead, than when it actually comes into aspect. Morin, one of my favorite ancient astrologers, emphasized the need to see at least three aspects pointing to the event, before predicting. The solar return has a grand trine with several other trines and a lesser known and used aspect, the kite, and with Pluto in the first. The profection is dealing with the eleventh house of hopes, friends and wishes. What more can one ask for?

As I continue to study the chart, my little voice inside of me, said to tell the person, I would love to change places, or would I? With everything moving full steam ahead, would I have the wisdom to be open to what would be unfolding before my eyes? Would I have the intelligence to keep abreast of all the details? Will I develop inertia or laziness and allow my creative abilities who got me this far, to take a holiday because all was falling into place? As with all good things, pitfalls abound in the most unlikely places and appear as wolfs in sheep’s clothing. As I have learnt the hard way, we need to allow things to unfold and not try to make things materialize or help it along. The Universe is far wiser than we are and knows what we need. For example, many years ago I was told by an astrologer that I would do very well in my chosen field of design, which I was very excited about. A job out of my field of interest kept calling me, but I kept turning it down. In hindsight I now realize it was the perfect stepping stone to accomplish what I hoped for. At the time I wasn’t open enough to see the possibilities. Had I let things unfold instead of trying to make it happen, success would have been sooner and better than when it finally did arrive.

“The Quest for Change Begins with the Self Murmurs the Sag Lunar Eclipse on May 24th 2013”

Sagittarius_2
As time seems to be flying by as if by magic, the predictions for 2013 as a year of the unusual, unexpected and sudden windfalls of change in the political, religious, climatic and economical areas are subtly unfolding. The year of the snake has made it presence known and the next move can only be guessed at. In this atmosphere, one of the most potent and powerful moons of the season, the 4 Sagittarius 6 Lunar Eclipse on May 24th at 9:26 pm PDT makes its appearance, murmuring that the quest for change begins with the self, first, and second with our thoughts. A perceptive notion created in harmony with a divine plan expressed through the aspects of the night sky. We are not able to have the vision for change, or make changes or see the changes as viable, if we don’t first make the change in ourselves. Uranus and Pluto make their third square, combined with the fact that this lunar eclipse is a super moon, indicating its closeness to the earth in a tight square to Neptune is storing up and focusing the energy for whatever we wish to bring into our reality.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 5th degrees of Sagittarius and for the Sun in 5th degrees of Gemini is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Sagittarius 5 An old owl up in a tree This is a symbol of the necessary element of steadiness in human affairs, and of the extent to which the demonstrated and widely accepted values of the life must have their full and functioning part in the immediate reality with which an individual may be seeking to come to terms. Here is the power of man to give an eternal stability or a universal compulsion to whatever seems to call to his own deeper and private potentialities. Emphasized especially is the real dignity of self respect. The keyword is normality. When positive, the degree is exceptional wisdom or effective self-restraint in each detail of personal accomplishment, and when negative, self-betraying intellectual and emotional smugness.

Gemini 5 A radical magazine This is a symbol of the necessary element of change in human affairs, and of the extent to which the remote or the nonpossessed and entirely potential will have its full and functioning part in any immediate reality with which an individual may be seeking to come to terms. Here is the power of man to give high exaltation and dramatic force to whatever succeeds in stirring him deeply with himself. Emphasized in principal and important part is the supremacy of inner over outer compulsions. The keyword is tangency. When positive, the degree is personality in its highly effective capacity for putting its stamp on everything it touches, and when negative, a perverse determination to quarrel with everybody.

This symbol is very appropriate with its message as it speaks to the fact that when we begin to make the necessary changes, stability and staying center to our beliefs will be some of the benefits. It symbolizes our ability to use wisdom, emotional detachment and self control in emphasizing our ability in demonstrating our self respect and our ability to keep silent when it is necessary. It represents our maturity and confidence one gains when adapting to life’s trials and tribulations that are laid in front of one’s path in life. It echoes the need to have the courage to make dramatic changes and to defend what we believe and who we really are. It will make the difference from just succeeding to a successful completion. As we approach the energies of this Lunar Eclipse we need to remind ourselves, if we want to make changes, we must first begin with the self and then with our thoughts.

“Seek and Define One’s Sacred Purpose in Life Implies the 7 Leo 24 Full Moon on Jan 26th 2013”

 

As the year continues its journey, the days already seems to fly by and the dark cold winter nights seems to give way to the anticipation, that the warmth of spring is not too far away.  The hope of optimism is ever eternal and present in one’s thoughts and one’s feelings as one faces the unknown expectations and experiences that are about to unfold.  Our faith and trust in promises and the ideology without action, whether they are ours or others, are on shaky grounds.  Our need and necessity to think and feel out of the box and the norm is not only knocking on our door, but is about to break it open.  In this atmosphere the 7 Leo 24 Full Moon on January 26th 2013 at 8:30 pm PST begins to beam its light implying our need to seek and define one’s sacred purpose in life.  The fixed stars in conjunction with Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto with their aspect with one another are reminding us to take a giant step forward into the unknown and the uncharted areas in understanding our destiny and our feelings and the way we see it.  That to create and to heal comes out of our wisdom and our courage in our sacred beliefs, in which we really are and were we are meant to be.

 

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 8th degrees of Leo and for the Sun in 8th degrees of Aquarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

 

Leo 8  A Bolshevik propagandist  This is a symbol of the indomitable expectation of the human spirit as it gathers strength from the innermost reaches of man’s own or enduring nature, here emphasized by the recurrent battles over social and political concepts.  The exceptional dynamic involved is seen in the selfless energy developed to an extreme by the revolutionists of each new age.  Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the need of the human community for worthy cause to which to rally in every aspect of its potentials.  The keyword is leaven.  When positive, the degree is a determination to share the soul’s vision and to make a permanent impact on history, and when negative, futile ranting against a multitude of superficial ills.

 

Aquarius 8  Beautifully gowned wax figures  This is a symbol of the ineradicable vanity of the human spirit as it gathers strength not only from the finery it wears but from a superficial display of woman’s form and man’s reputation, here emphasized  through personal idealizations.  A strong psychological dynamic for individual effort comes from the direct influence of outstanding and even notorious people, and implicit in the static symbolism of the waxworks is a necessity to recognize and identify the values worthy of emulation.  The keyword is impact.  When positive, the degree is achievement through the effective dramatization of human character on some level of everyday understanding, and when negative, futile effort to recapture outworn experience.

 

This symbol speaks to us about the fire of passion and the intense hope that rises in our souls when we support a cause we truly believe in.  The emphasis here is the selfless dedication to an ideology, especially when it includes the welfare of all.  The greatest advantage lies in aligning oneself with the most worthy causes, in seeking the greatest good for all concerned.  Implicit in this image is being a positive role model by demonstrating the highest virtues in practical every day living.  Emulation is the first step in achieving the qualities one is seeking to bring about in oneself and the second is the determination to dramatize one’s beneficial qualities by taking a fresh look at oneself and to be able to improvise, rearrange, and experiment until one arrives at the image that truly represents who we are.  Once we come to terms with our self, the direction and the reason for our sojourn in this life will become clear.  As the picture of the real us is established during this full moon period, the energies will unfold and help us to define our sacred purpose in life.
