It's Not Just You

This past week everyone I knew was in a funk.

Including me.

And no one could put their finger on EXACTLY why because nothing dramatic had changed for them. They hadn't lost their life savings in the stock market or experienced a major crisis.

But astrology had the clues as to why the funk.

The Moon was applying to a conjunction with Saturn which is a downer PLUS the opposition of Saturn and Uranus is getting closer and closer, and everyone's feeling this stress. On November 4th--Election Day--the opposition between these two planets will be EXACT

Now that the Moon-Saturn conjunction has passed and Mercury has gone direct again, people's moods are a bit better, and I'm expressing my blessings today on Blog Your Blessings Sunday knowing the wisdom of these words:

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Second Life

This morning was spent at a gathering with beautiful goddess's from all over the world thanks to Starheart and Second Life. Starheart is one of the co-founders of the New Earth Star in Second Life and of which I'm a member and participant.

I came attired today in my Mermaid Outfit which is so lovely I can't bear to take it off and put on something else from my inventory/closet. Each of the others who gathered today wore gorgeous outfits, and we met inside a pyramid which Starheart has created along with her partner.

My blessing of today is the ability to meet, chat, engage, and share loving friendship with others in the outrageous other world of Second Life.

Aries Full Moon and Starship Sightings

Photo: Charles Pfeil

It's almost 11 AM Hawaii time, and as I write this post and from what I've been able to read on the web from around the world, THUS FAR zero starship sightings or a "huge craft of a great light' has appeared. Perhaps 'they' are late?

The rumors of an upcoming mass televised UFO sighting over American skies which have taken the Internet by storm and kept people all over the world sky-watching are maybe just that--rumors?!

Where Do We Go From Here?

Photo: terragalleria

I'm a haphazard poster on this blog--my mostly astrology blog. The reason being is that I'm such a curious cat--I'm usually researching something, reading, posting on another blog, writing, traveling, consulting, creating art, and so on and so forth.

Constraint doesn't work for me. Haphazard and occasional does. I'm way more Uranian than Saturnian.

I'll use MYSELF as the subject of the current astro Saturn-Uranus opposition. Yeh, everyone has this opposition, and it's impacting us all for some time.

Transiting Uranus in the 12th House opposses my Natal Saturn in the 6th house, and the challenge is clear. The 6th house rules health (among other things), and the 12th house rules hospitals and secrets (among other things).

Because of health issues, I discovered someone online (Uranus--computers) who has been able to connect the dots for me.The revelations have been very healing for me and will undoubtedly assist in clearing my health issues.

The Saturn Opposite Uranus aspect tells me the lure is to to use eccentric, unusual methods to deal with my health issues. I'm using 'outside-the-box' methods for healing. I'm grateful for the internet which allowed me to discover these healing modalities and people. Who knew there were so many alternatives to allopathic medicine?!

These secret health remedies and people might have been hidden from me in another time, but now, Saturn (the old guard of medicine) can't keep them from me as long as my fingers can type, and I have energy to research.

Saturn is the Old Guard (the established medical and pharmaceutical) and Uranus is the Wild Genius (new technologies, inventions and approaches). These two are battling it out. Who will win?

How about you? Are you dealing with a situation in your life where the Old is battling with the New? How are you handling this? Are you daring to bet on the New? Or are you sticking to what is secure and stable (Saturn)? You can do a bit of both--it's not all black and white, either-or!

What would you like to let go of but may be afraid? What do you stand to lose? Where can you be more radical and daring? What is your bottom line should your home/world come tumbling down? Where are your true resources?

What would you do if the world paradigm surprisingly, suddenly changed (Uranus)? Would you be traumatized and pine for the old paradigm (Saturn)?

Paying The Pluto Piper

Photo: terragalleria

With a little over a month away from the final exit of Pluto from the sign of Sagittarius and the entry into Capricorn on November 26, 2008, we are witnessing the shadow of 'things' to come in the news.

Events cast their shadows before them, and we can glean from these shadows what's in store.

I share with you this excellent astrology article I read today on this subject: Pluto in Capricorn on the Astrology Notes website. Click here to read it.

Here's more info on what to expect from Pluto in Capricorn according to Astrodynamics:

"When Pluto goes through Capricorn we can expect the transformation of all things ruled by that sign - such as our religious institutions, halls of government and political structures, the way we inter our dead and take care of our old people, construction techniques and buildings, and how we handle ownership of property."

There's more to read about Pluto in Capricorn at the Astrodynamics link to Pluto here

They said: “We are afraid.”
“Come to the edge,” he said.
They came.
He pushed them and they flew.

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Angels

This Sunday I'd like to blog my blessings about the angels which always accompany my family and me on our travels.

Even though we had many connections at different airports and traveled in third-world countries on our recent journey, all went smoothly, and we returned home safe and sound.

When we were at the Tucson, airport I photographed this beautiful picture on the wall. I like how the eyes of the angels are beaming light upon the churches. This is how I feel about our angels: they lovingly watch over us and light our way.

"Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the divine beneficence towards us. They regard our safety, undertake our defense, direct our ways, and exercise a constant solicitude that no evil befalls us. " Terry Lynn Taylor

When Venus Meets Pluto

Photo: terragalleria

As I was working on an astro chart for a client yesterday, one of her astrocartography crossings jumped out at me! And I knew this crossing was q big part of Her Story.

She's never had 'luck' in love. And even though relationships are challenging for the luckiest of us, when you live with a Venus/Pluto astrocartography crossing, maintaining a loving relationship without quarreling and other yukky stuff is SUPER challenging.

I know whereof I speak, for many long years I too lived in such an astrocartography climate, and recently when I re-visited this area on vacation, once again I discovered myself becoming a 'spitfire' which is not normally the way I behave in my current relationship!

What can one do to mitigate this challenging Venus/Pluto? What worked for me was becoming aware in the moment. After 'acting-out', I realized my behavior was not something I wished to incorporate and wasn't 'me'. I didn't wish to claim or embody this energy, nor did I wish to incorporate it into my relationship. So I let it go.

Choose NOT to react. Choose to let go your anger. Choose not to engage in a quarrel.

Not easy, but it can be done.

Here's what Astrodienst writes about this crossing:

This crossing focuses entirely on the area of interpersonal relations. Love, partnership and sexuality are the key issues and become the touchstones of trust and commitment.

You have great sensual appeal. Meetings with people are shaped by the intensity of your erotic fantasies. In this place, you are seduced by the appeal of the forbidden and the extreme. Common sense and carefulness are overcome by sexual urges.

Affairs or secret liaisons are difficult to hide in this place. There may be relationship crises, accompanied by loud discussions, accusations and petty property claims. If you are not to risk upsetting the basis of your marriage or partnership, you are challenged to rearrange your relationship, abandon old concepts and calmly overcome your fear of being alone.


The key words in the above (for me) are "relationship crises". Oh yeh!

Collecting Energies

Photo: Charles Pfeil

I've recently returned from vacation and am slowly beginning my blogging routine again. Mahalo for checking-up on me via email! I'm refreshed and rejuvenated.

Traveling is very interesting to me from an astrocartography perspective, for I love to witness others (including myself) as we interact with our astro-environment. Through the years, I've watched people express their astrocartography charts EVEN in brief airport layovers, so I'm completely convinced of the validity of astrocartography.

The insights I received recently add MORE to the astrocartography story, and these insights have to do with what we 'gather' or 'collect' from various geographical locations.

For instance, should you wish to add more Venus or Jupiter to your current location which doesn't have Venus or Jupiter HIGHLIGHTED on the angles of your astro chart, you can visit a location where your Venus and Jupiter are on the angles and collect this energy to bring home with you.

How do you do this? Through intention and memory.

Visualize the memory of how you felt at a location and intentionally express this feeling where you're currently located. This may take some practice, but it can be done!
