Public Players 2021: Bill Gates – Innovative Nerd? Global Benefactor? Megalomaniac? Inadvertent Awakener? An Astrological Perspective

21 Apr

Dear ASTRO~News Reader,

About time to discuss the birth chart of Bill Gates – perhaps THE most controversial public figure of the Corona crisis, esp. through the BMG foundation and their vaccination agenda, and recently also re: food freedom.
It’s been on my mind for a while to write about him astrologically, and since several befriended clients asked me recently, it was the impulse that got me going.

Famous people often express bigger-than-life Archetypes that reflect what’s going on in the Zeitgeist of the collective psyche.


When it comes to Bill Gates and the high level influencers he’s involved with (most obviously: WHO, WEF), the association with the corporate pharma-tech Plutocracy is quite obvious…
Many people are concerned about an Aquarian dystopia of technological / technocratic surveillance and control immanently threatening Humanity.

More Questions than Answers

That’s what Bill Gates is about, and what he provokes, lately more than ever.
In accordance with that theme, I’d rather pose questions and offer info for possibilities of interpretations here-below, than make assumptions and give ready-made answers. To contribute to the discussion, by adding astrological puzzle pieces to the mystery of the man, and hopefully help with the shaping of a bigger / broader picture.

Up to you to do your further research.

Bill Gates was born on 28 October 1955 in Seattle – apparently (“from memory” according to http://www.astro.com) at 10 pm.
So the birth time is approximate, and AC might not be accurate.

Voila – his birth map, with current planetary transits:

First Impression:
Lots of Striking Features, Several Planetary Pairings

  • NO Planet in Earth signs / lots in Fire
  • A rare ‘Basket’ configuration, with the MOON & ERIS (tight conjunction) on the MC(!) as the ‘handle’
  • 3 Planets ‘in exile’: VENUS, MARS, URANUS (something special / weird / unusual about those Archetypes)
  • URANUS (likely) rising in LEO, in fixed T-square with CHIRON on the CAP-AQ cusp on his DC, and (as the apex) NEPTUNE / SUN on the LI-SCO ‘Tipping Point’ / ‘Choice Point’ / ‘Alchemy Point’
  • JUPITER – PLUTO (the alignment comes every 13 years) almost exact (1 week after his birthday)
  • VENUS – SATURN (once a year, and was exact 2 days after he was born)

Let’s break these themes down – not necessarily in the order above, rather organically-thematically.

ZERO Planets in EARTH Signs / lots in FIRE

Wow – it’s relatively rare (I’d say from prof. experience 1 in 200) for someone to be born without any Planet, nor Sun, Moon, AC, MC) in an EARTH Sign (or any of the 4 elements for that matter).
What does that mean? Is he ‘not of this Earth’, an Alien?
Is he very ungrounded, lacking common sense, and can’t he really relate to all things natural, of the Earth, body and health / wellness related, to what’s lasting and has value?

But hey, you may say, he’s one of the richest Bill-ionaires on Planet Earth, and a big player in the economy!
AND he now also ranks as the top U.S. land ‘owner’ (242 000 acres). Plus, he’s ever so concerned about the health and wellness of humans, and in more economic opportunities, esp. of women, in the developing world?!
Seems like the opposite of zero Earth?!

A lack of an astrological Element can show up as over-compensation…
Astrological tradition says, no need to overly emphasize on that Element in this lifetime.
But does he ever! Trying to re-invent and commodify / monetize what Nature, Life, and the Earth already organically provide.

He DOES have significant (fiery) Placements in all of his Earth Houses 2, 6, and 10, though:

  • JUPITER-PLUTO in LEO in his 2nd House of Talents, Values, Ownership, Business, Money
  • LILITH end of SAG (Galactic Ctre) in his 6th House of Work, Lifestyle, Service, Health
  • The MOON-ERIS in ARIES in his 10th House of Life Purpose, Career, Public Relations

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card I – Magician (Power, Magic, Alchemy) – photo by moi

The fiery Placements in the Earth Houses (esp. JUPITER – PLUTO) remind me rather of the Magician / Wizard Archetype.
Power over Nature, rather than Being Of / As Nature.

JUPITER-PLUTO almost exactly conjunct in LEO

JUPITER / PLUTO (their alignment only occurs every 13 years, and it was exact just one week after his birth) in LEO in his 2nd House can be the signature of a Plutocrat, megalomaniac, massive narcissist – insatiably hungry for love & attention -, an eternal Child, or: of a super generous powerhouse, using wealth for good.

He certainly lives the most obvious aspects of JUPITER / PLUTO in LEO in his 2nd House, bringing massive, transformational creativity (obsession?) into the world via his gifts & privileges – and keeps on making a fortune via business opportunities.

For B.G., PLUTO is extra important, since it rules his SUN and VENUS / SATURN in SCORPIO. Wealth (JUPITER) has the power to transform (PLUTO), for better or worse, and to be a catalyst for him and those he ‘rules’ (LEO), one way or another.

JUPITER-PLUTO in LEO in his 2nd (TAU, ruled by VENUS) House, is also in fixed square with VENUS-SATURN in SCO (ruled by PLUTO), in his 5th (LEO related) House.

There’s definitely a recurring theme here, of attraction-assimilation, based on / gathering more values (VENUS, 2nd), creativity, being a central player (LEO, 5th), and death-rebirth / transformation / power / control (PLUTO, SCO).
And all of this in intense fixed (by sign and house) tension.

Not easily giving in, adapting, moving, rather holding and guarding. SATURN in SCO is also the last Planet in the LIBRA-SCO sequence.

Speaking of flexibility – his mutability score is super low also, and would be zero, if it wasn’t for his Nodal Axis and LILITH:

‘Wild’ LILITH end of SAG (Galactic Centre), close to his North Node

…on the cusp of his 6th House sits B.G.’s LILITH in SAG (ruled by JUPITER), suggesting a work / lifestyle of ultimate freedom, meaning, happiness and generosity – which can be deeply spiritual (Freedom & Happiness is our True Nature), or simply, in a lower level of evolution: Doing whatever he pleases / my way or the highway / “I know better.”

Close to LILITH is his ‘karmic’ North Node in SAG, likely at the end of his 5th House (opp. his South Node in GEM).
From the position in the House (well, dependent on his birth time), his NN isn’t strongly positioned, not very outwardly oriented – yet: close to the U.S. Ascendant (at 12° 12′ SAG) – he has an inner connection with the U.S. re: Pursuit of freedom & happiness, teaching & inspiring, making the world a better place, being generous, and intending the best for all (the bright sides of SAG).

Or: Having an agenda, being on a mission / crusade, campaigning, advertising, convincing, putting out propaganda, making false promises, more isn’t always better, righteousness, religious fervor & inquisition, creating a belief system (the shadows of SAG).

Presently (June 2020 – Dec 2021), the South Node is in SAG, heeding a warning of these old / karmic shadow sides of SAG.
And we’ve seen ever so much division over contrary stories, beliefs, and agenda over the last year.
What’s the truth and the path? Can’t be just ONE ‘right’ way.
The North Node in GEM / South Node in SAG suggest to question the narrative, ask good questions, learn, discuss and dialogue.

Meaning for B.G.: Whatever he beliefs is right and true might be the path HE found but he shouldn’t impose it upon others / the population of the Earth!
What does his Heart say?
SAG – GEM is the Journey from the default head space to heart wisdom…

The ARIES MOON – likely the Ruler of his chart

…if his If his birth time is relatively accurate – born between approx. 8:15 – 10:15 pm – to the effect that his Rising Sign is CANCER (which I believe it is), is high UP on the MC / 10th House of his chart, and almost exactly (8°12′ / 8°15′) linked with ERIS.

The CANCER Rising makes sense to me – from the 1st impression (well, not easy to go back to it, since his image is SO imprinted in the collective consciousness now…) he seems like a ‘big boy’, nerdy (URANUS in his 1st House) – maybe even Momma’s boy, or dare I say: the ideal son-in-law? Let alone the cozy pink sweater theme…
And Family background is important to him.

Mind you – what you see is not what you get, says the AC.
His SUN is in SCO, and his MOON (ruler of his chart) high-UP on his MC point of ‘Public Relations’ / Career / Purpose, in ARIES, closely linked with ERIS.


Starting with the ARIES MOON high-up:
Seems like Bill has been since his childhood inclined (‘default’ moods / modes, carried over from emotional early imprints via needs, esp. if unmet, are seen via the MOON) to be competitive, fast, ambitious, and eager to be ‘the first… (fill in the blanks)’, ahead of the game, and / or: to feel / need to be alone and by himself, a self starter / self caring in various ways.
Maybe also reinforced by a mom who was a lot out in the world. He might have fought to get her attention, maybe through anger and fighting, through bravely asserting himself, venturing out on his own, rebelliousness, mischief, etc.

He’d be quite fierce and adamant, sometimes naively so, once he put his head (ARIES rules the head) to something HE wants. He’d have the tendency to pro-actively give impulses, initiate, he’d looove the thrill of newness, and even of conflict and controversy (of course even more so when ERIS is active – see below).

Later in life, he could have developed an impetus / purpose to leave his mark on the world, and create a reputation (MC), specifically: via supporting women, girls & children to ‘make it’ – not just survive but be self starters and pioneers.

The MOON in trad. Astrology also relates to The People, countries (vs. the SUN to rulers, kings).
Looks like B.G. has the need to care for / support / rescue (early ARIES has also a ‘Survival’ energy) whole countries and The People of the World.
Which also ties into his NEPTUNE (end of LIBRA) – SUN (early SCO) theme that can be experienced as a Saviour / Messiah identity, or as devotion to selfless service.
Yet: Who made the choices? What’s with agreements between rescuer and rescued one/s, or is it mostly a strategy or manipulation?


With the strong ARIES side in the ‘Public Relations’ field:
No wonder he finds / puts himself in controversial / confrontational situations, yet, like an ‘energizer bunny’ keeps coming back into action, with always new ideas and impulses.


Esp. since 2019, as CHIRON entered ARIES, fully activated by the epic ARIES New Moon with CHIRON (and LILITH), on March 24, 2020 – signature of a ‘medical precedent’ / emergency, of a new life, where medical conditions / medicine itself, and warriors for autonomy ‘went rogue’ – the start of a ‘Brave New World'(?), however you may see it.


That’s where B.G. came in, in HIS new function (as perceived by the public, even though, there might be a deeper background, see his SCO SUN) as self proclaimed leader / sponsor in the medical / vaccine (so scorpionic!) field.
When did CHIRON (in its 50-year cycle!) reach his MOON / ERIS?
First in Spring / Summer 2020(!), esp. May, and Aug / Sept, again NOW – Spring 2021, esp. March, finally in Dec.

The LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon on March 28, 2021 came with an exact conjunction of the SUN-CHIRON-VENUS on B.G.’s MOON-ERIS while the MOON was very close to his MARS in LIBRA. No wonder he’s on hyper-drive, as a main front line (ARIES) figure of the medical emergency response scenario.

As you can see in his chart, MARS, the Ruler of ARIES, is right opposite his MOON, ‘in exile’ in LIBRA (trad. not well placed), and close to MERCURY – showing B.G. can be a passionate advocate, aggressive negotiator, and / or: or highly contentious, stirring up battles and conflict where there could be peace & harmony.

Speaking of battles, let’s check into the role of

ERIS, so tightly linked to his MOON

Eris – Antikensammlung Berlin

Who / what / which Archetype is ERIS, and how does it show up now personally and societally?

ERIS, the most massive and second-largest dwarf planet known in the Solar System, was only discovered in 2005 (one of the reasons why PLUTO was demoted of its Planet status in 2006!), has an eccentric 561(!) year orbit around the SUN (more than twice as long as PLUTO), and has been almost the whole 20th and beginning of the 21st century in ARIES!

Even if you have ‘nothing in ARIES’ you do: ERIS (that’s another – personal – story, showing how you respond to / with that Archetype!)

The unevolved role of the ERIS Archetype – the Greek goddess of discord and strife is seeding separation – which we’ve seen a LOT lately in humanity.
“She stirs up jealousy and envy to cause fighting and anger among men. At the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, all the gods were invited with the exception of Eris, and, enraged at her exclusion, she spitefully caused a quarrel among the goddesses that led to the Trojan War.”

Here’s where ERIS can evolve, according to Doug Walker in this excellent ERIS intro article:
“If the ERIS Archetype is developed fully, humanity may never have to experience war again. The feminine ERIS will balance the aggression of MARS. A well developed ERIS Archetype could banish all war. The ancient prophesy of swords turned into plowshares could be realized.”


Hmmm – wouldn’t that be great, in B.G.’s case, and also for his buddy, WEF’s Klaus Schwab, who was born with ERIS-SATURN-SUN-VENUS-MERCURY, all in ARIES (on the spectrum of trailblazer to overlord of discord).

With the MOON-ERIS combo, does B.G. have an emotional inclination to respond to / thrive on / project / seed competition / conflict / battles, and strive / discord? Maybe rooted in his childhood?

So yes, all these Planets, incl. the MOON, and ERIS are fiery, yet occupying Earth Houses.
Spirit into Matter? Creative sparks manifested? Living a magical life? Playing God?

What a striking ‘Basket’ Formation!

…with the MOON-ERIS in ARIES on his MC / Zenith functioning as the ‘handle’!
A ‘Basket’ is a concentration of heavenly bodies in max. half of the chart (‘bowl’), contrasted by one (here: MOON-ERIS) opposing the centre of the ‘bowl’.

The most recent Full Moon, on March 28 also featured a relatively rare ‘Basket’ configuration, with the LIBRA MOON as the ‘handle’ – opposite B.G.’s MOON-ERIS!

The ARIES MOON as the inner Mother-Child Archetype, in tandem with discordant ERIS ‘picks up’, and transports / funnels the ‘fruits’ of B.G.’s other ‘Archetypal Players’, from URANUS in early LEO close to his AC to LILITH in late SAG, to the Public / into his reputation (MC / 10th House cusp).

B.G.’s ‘Wounded Healer / Teacher’ CHIRON at 0°20′ AQ (exactly activated by the JUPITER-SATURN conjunction at 0°29′ AQ on Dec 21, 2020!) on his DC is slightly out of the Basket formation, yet super important for other reasons (more about it in the T-square theme).

The Fixed T’square – these years activated by URANUS in TAU, and acutely by the SCO-TAU Full Moon on Apr 26

B.G. was born with a Fixed T-square between URANUS (likely) rising in early LEO, CHIRON on the CAP-AQ cusp, and (as the apex / outlet) NEPTUNE-SUN on the LI-SCO ‘Tipping Point’ / ‘Choice Point’ / ‘Alchemy Point’.

B.G.’s URANUS – CHIRON opposition on his AC – DC ‘Encounter Axis’ (AC: Self, DC: Significant Others) stands out per se, and even more striking as it’s the base of the T-square configuration, pointing to NEPTUNE-SUN!

URANUS stationary in early LEO (in ‘exile’ – furthest away from AQ which it rules) close to his AC

B.G. was born in the first ‘preview’ window of URANUS in LEO (end of Aug ’55 – end of Jan ’56 before it fully entered LEO in June ’56). Plus, URANUS was stationary – about to turn retro 2 weeks after he was born.
The Archetype of a Planet close to the AC colours one’s identity / self reference / self presentation.

  • How about: a colourful / strange / weird innovator-genius-madman-nerd who’s actually just a privileged big kid / wannabe SuperStar / psycho / narcissist – calling for attention via creating drama
  • Or: playing with Fire in dangerous, unpredictable ways

As a public figure, he’s also a collective catalyst for individual awakening, sovereignty and freedom (URANUS in LEO).

CHIRON on the CAP-AQ cusp on his DC, activated by the 2020 Winter Solstice alignment of JUPITER-SATURN at 1º AQ

A projection of / seeking alliances and relationships with ‘Wounded Healers & Teachers’?
B.G. surrounds himself with / is involved in high level (CAP) groups / circles / systems (AQ), esp. in the medical-scientific-academic world.
Yet, there’s a wound.


CHIRON is a shamanic Archetype.
What’s the wound healing that’s happening to B.G. as to Humanity via his impact?

  • Is he, and are his peers, really ‘prescribing’ remedies based on what they’ve gone through themselves / know first hand?
  • Doctor, take your own medicine / teacher, follow your own teaching, are themes for CHIRON.
  • How does he relate to / as ‘regular people’ on a same level of humanity, or does he ‘live in the abstract, tech / systems cloud’ (AQ)?!
  • Or worse: Is he a wannabe, sociopath ‘quack doc’ who applies computer technology to human beings, which actually endangers the health of humanity?

The JUPITER-SATURN conjunction at Winter Solstice 2020 at 1º AQ exactly aligned with B.G.’s CHIRON, marked the beginning of a new 20-year socio-economic-political cycle, for science, systemic solutions, and, primarily: for our shared Humanity, to outgrow the old ‘matrix’ and co-create the NEW, in freedom.

Players like B.G. trigger the CAP-AQ ‘Wound’ – isolation in a cold world / in a system that doesn’t care. Involvement in social networks, groups and with friends helps heal it.

Presently, CHIRON is in ARIES (2019 – 26) – close to B.G.’s MOON-ERIS – rather than being in survival mode / a battle field, it’s time to bravely show up for ourselves and for life, in this brand new scenario.
And to heal early wounds in the process.

NEPTUNE-SUN on the LIBRA-SCO cusp ‘Choice Point’ / ‘Alchemy Point’

…surrounded by MARS-MERCURY in LIBRA, and VENUS-SATURN in SCO.

Now we’re coming perhaps to the crux (well, he’s loaded with charged themes) of his chart.

NEPTUNE-SUN per se can manifest as

  • A ‘weak’ or absent father, or paradoxically (NEPTUNE IS paradoxical) as an overwhelming omni-present father figure
  • Deluded identity, a dreamer, romantic
  • Artistic qualities, esp. music, poetry, dance
  • The longing to connect, esp. spiritually
  • Addicted personality, suffering from ‘hungry ghost’ syndrome (check out Dr. Gabor Mate’s work, wondering whether it’s on B.G.’s reading list…)
  • Messiah / saviour complex
  • Co-dependency
  • A PISCES Age Figure, positioning themselves in the Piscean tragic dynamic of victim – perpetrator – savior / martyr.

NEPTUNE rules PISCES, and IS presently in PISCES (2012 – 2026), since 2020 in the last, double Piscean part of PI.
Chances are, we’re in the outflow of the PISCES Era. From Piscean mass consciousness (incl mass media), co-dependent dynamics, and religions to Aquarian emphasis on systems, networks, technology.


Emblematic figures like B.G. show up in this transition time.

He embodies the PI theme, via NEPTUNE-SUN, and also the AQ theme, via CHIRON in AQ, opposite URANUS, ruler of AQ, close to his AC.


His NEPTUNE-SUN combo is on the LI-SCO cusp – the ‘Tipping Point’ / ‘Alchemy Point
‘, where:

  • Choices lead to change.
  • Strategy matters.
  • Alliances are deep and bonding. Soul contracts.
  • Certain ingredients are required for the ‘secret sauce’ / Alchemy (which reminds me of the Magician association).
  • Detective qualities (SCO) are required to uncover the mysteries (NEPTUNE) around him – which prob. keeps people fascinated – like in a good thriller.
  • Which part does B.G. play in the plot? The Neptunian side as well as LEO in his 1st House can make him also a natural actor / performer / player / illusionist.

With NEPTUNE-SUN on the apex of the Fixed T-square, these and related themes serve as the outlet of the tension between URANUS and CHIRON, the creative maverick and the awkward outsider-turned-insider.

Planetary combos leading into (from LIBRA) and out of (in SCO) his NEPTUNE-SUN alliance
B.G. has several pairings of Planets, as you can see in his chart – all those energy concentrations!

On the LIBRA side, it’s about the art of relating harmoniously, and in synergistic balance of giving and receiving.
B.G. has the go-getter / Warrior Archetype MARS in LIBRA where it isn’t per se ‘happy’ (in ‘exile’).
MARS-MERCURY in LIBRA can be very passionate or adamant when talking / arguing / convincing / persuading others to do or agree to what he wants, an aggressive negotiator, think a lot about strategies, be by default in the head (also since MERCURY rules his South Node in GEM), and in the ego (MARS).
MARS exactly opposes his MOON-ERIS in ARIES, ruled by MARS (see above). His competitive, innovation, newness oriented needs are verbally asserted – creating discord and strive.

These LIBRA themes are put into the scales of Justice, and primed for shadow transformation, in SCO, via NEPTUNE (surrendering), the SUN (shedding the light of consciousness onto them), VENUS (meeting the dark side with pure love), and SATURN (being committed to do shadow work). Well, that’s the idea / unsolicited prescription to B.G.

On the SCORPIO side it’s about depth, intimacy, magic, transformation.
B.G.’s VENUS isn’t in a joyful place in SCO either (in ‘exile’ from her yummy Taurean garden).
VENUS-SATURN in SCO can manifest as challenges / frustrations in intimacy and relationships, an obnoxious / nasty controlling nature – or attracted to control freaks, the underworld, sado-masochistic tendencies, attracting through control, shutting down relationships when he gets triggered, a fascination / liaison with death, and ‘until death do us part’ commitments. Attraction to transformation / control, meeting and the shadow with love, depth psychology.

With NEPTUNE-SUN in the centre of the ‘Planetary Party’ in LI & SCO as apex (outlet) of the T-square from URANUS and CHIRON (likely exactly on the AC-DC encounter axis)…
the strategy theme can also have to do with encountering other people with the power to transform – via their celebrity status (LEO) or via their position in systems, science, technology (AQ).


I’m the king, says LEO. We’re collaborating / we’re organized, says AQ.
Strategies can be negotiated, based on what Bill himself comes up with and wants to experiment with (URANUS in LEO), and on group coordination (CHIRON in AQ).
Choices are made that lead to change – even if it’s destructive / self destructive (SCO), ideally positively transformational.

The Transit of URANUS now in TAU (2019 – 2026) is linking into B.G.’s T-square

by filling the ‘missing leg’ for a grand fixed cross (a challenging, super-charged constellation).


The URANUS transit (prob. one of the most important planetary activations in his life, also since he was born with URANUS Rising) starts out from in his 10th House of the Public / his Purpose, and will enter his 11th House (ruled by AQ / URANUS) of Society, Group Consciousness, Humanity, in 1-2 years.

Here’s a timeline of the most recent URANUS activations for B.G.:

2017-18
URANUS (from late ARIES) squared his AC-DC, and opposed his NEPTUNE in LIBRA –
New, revolutionary, innovative alliances

2018-19-20
URANUS at the entry point to TAU squared his CHIRON in AQ –
Medical emergency, Bill positioning himself as a medical spokesperson-activist-‘authority’, with vaccination agenda

2019-20
URANUS in early TAU squares his URANUS in early LEO (part of his URANUS cycle) –
Creative maverick experimenting with ‘trying to ultra-commodify’ the Earth and being involved in bringing ‘biotech’ into human bodies

2019- (mostly) 2020
URANUS in early TAU opposes his SUN in early SCO –
Impact on relationships / public relations:
Is he a genius, a madman, an expression of an evil, dark force, a shocking catalyst, with a soul contract to help humanity to process shadows, like: giving power & authority away by complacency (hardly ‘convenient’ anymore)…, and to wake up?!

More oppositions from URANUS to come, to his VENUS-SATURN in SCO, and a square to his JUPITER-PLUTO end of LEO, in a few years.

URANUS is ‘in Fall’ (the most challenging Zodiac energy) in TAU disruption of / experimentation with Nature, the body, food, values, habits, economy, money, what gives grounding and security.
URANUS is unpredictable (can bring shocks, accidents and incidents), experimental-scientific, innovative, liberating and awakening.


My main motto for URANUS in TAU: Wake up, Earthlings, and Embody Freedom! In the linked 2019 article you can also find references to:

  • URANUS in its 84-year cycle hasn’t been in TAURUS since 1934 – 1942: Era of depression of the world economy and World War II (with territorialism blended with fascism as triggers) – turbulent time for the Earth and the People for sure!
  • Previous URANUS in TAURUS phase, 1851 – 1851: Era of the Gold Rush, agricultural revolution, following the invention of the mechanical harvester, and even more so consolidation of the industrial era.
  • Chances are, the present URANUS in TAU will have paradigm shifting effects on the economy – like: catalyze the spirit of the 3rd Industrial (or rather: post-Industrial / post-Capitalist) Revolution that’s not based on owning (TAU) but on sharing in a networks (AQ, ruled by URANUS).”

    Bang – here we are – reinforced by JUPITER & SATURN having just initiated a new 2-year socio-political-economic cycle from AQ!

Bottom line:

How does Bill Gates come in as a public catalyst?
Well, big time.

Provocatively-scandalously so. Very URANIAN.

The Full Moon / energetic Wesak Moon of the Buddha on Apr 26, at 7° SCORPIO – TAURUS is just 1° away from B.G.’s SCO SUN.


A yearly sacred Spring Festival – which shows the stark contrast of Light and Darkness, Beauty & Joy and Pain & Suffering, as well as the conundrum of attachment (to wanting what’s desirable and to rejecting what’s painful) – that the Buddha emphasized.
This one even also comes with a fixed T-square (from the Full Moon axis to SATURN in AQ).
Attachment IS suffering. Nothing is static, everything is impermanent. Trusting the organic evolution of Life.
Finding Freedom through committing to something bigger our dharma calls us to.
A spiritual life lesson, esp. for ‘fixed types’ like B.G., and for all of us.

More about the energetic Wesak Moon in separate post – coming soon.

Lastly, I felt called to consult the Timeless ‘Oracle’ of the

SABIAN SYMBOLS for B.G.’s Ascendant and MOON-ERIS

Assuming his birth time is correct – his Ascendant is at / round 26°58′ CANCER.

“CANCER 27°
A VIOLENT STORM IN A CANYON FILLED WITH EXPENSIVE HOMES

Keynote: A confrontation with a social upheaval demanding the reconsideration of static values

The deeper implications of the scene depicted in the symbol are that the socio-cultural elite can always see its position and security challenged by forces beyond its control, even if it may be successful in protecting itself from destruction. The individual may not be able to depend on the standards and values he has acquired through education and through a relatively sheltered and rich life. He has to rise to the occasion, and perhaps to undergo an inner metamorphosis as a result of the crisis he has been able to accept as a personal challenge.

The contrast between the two first phases of this twenty-fourth sequence is evident:
Peace in luxury and intellectual development in terms of collective cultural values (reading books), then the challenge to meet a crisis situation produced by uncontrollable karmic forces that could lead to a successful CATHARSIS.”

Hmmm, lots of the above themes reflected here…

Blue Spectral Storm Seal

Speaking of Storm, we’re presently in the Mayan Year of the Blue Lunar Storm (July 26, 2020 – July 25, 2021).

…with the Invocation: 
“I Polarize in order to Catalyze
Stabilizing Energy
I seal the Matrix of Self-generation
With the Lunar Tone of Challenge
I am guided by the Power of Magic.” 

How about taking THAT to Heart?
Rather than projecting Power, Magic, and Control onto others…

His MOON-ERIS union is at 8°12′ – 15′ ARIES.

“ARIES 9°
A CRYSTAL GAZER

Keynote: The development of an inner realization of organic wholeness.

The crystal sphere symbolizes wholeness.
Within the sphere images take form. These images may reveal future events, but more significantly they picture “the situation as a whole” – the situation which the clairvoyant is meant to interpret.
The nascent mental faculties operating through still dominant emotions (or collective cultural incentives) act as a centralizing and whole-making power. What the intelligence perceives in its concentration is the function of every inner impulse and outer events in the open field of a “personality” still unclouded by egoism.

At this fourth stage of the five-fold sequence the new technique required for the development of individualized consciousness is revealed: CONCENTRATED ATTENTION.”

Is B.G. (called to be?) literally an ‘overseer’ of the whole situation, esp. of late?
Does he have a ‘crystal ball’ as to where the development is going, and what action (ARIES) is needed (MOON), yet can cause fierce conflict (ERIS)?
And what’s with the ARIES qualities of acutely showing up, with the shadow of rushing too much into a situation?
His concentrated attention on the course of action is admirable for some (10th House), terrifying for others (ERIS).
Do the People (MOON) need more crystal gazing qualities to see the situation as a whole?

CHIRON in ARIES, is now exactly not only on B.G.’s MOON-ERIS, but on the degree of the Crystal Gazer for all of us:

  • Energy flows & grows where attention goes.
    We feed energy to whom or what we give attention to.
  • Seeing the situation as a whole, freshly a-new, and ego-free, suggests ARIES.
  • Pure authentic Consciousness is the Medicine (CHIRON).

I leave it with this, and encourage you to do your own further research, if you feel called.


Here’s an interesting interview between Dr. Mercola and Vandana Shiva PhD (also with SCO SUN) who draws away the veil on B.G.’s empires and his role in the food engineering scandal – not the kind of URANUS in TAU manifestation that supports the future of Humanity on Planet Earth.


May Bill Gates be summoned to use his cosmic gifts for the highest Good of ALL!

Wishing us all an awakening and liberating process within Humanity!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Which can lead to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel more connected with yourself and with all-that-IS, in the bigger on-going evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

I welcome you as a client who is not seeking an ‘old school reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transition, stuckness, transformational crisis, for new perspectives at a crossroad or dilemma, and for important choices.

MERCURY in TAURUS (Apr 19 – May 3) – meeting URANUS & LILITH: What do You truly Enjoy & Value? How do You EmBody Freedom?

15 Apr

Dear Astro~News Friends!

The Mercurial Inner Messenger / Communicator / Mind Archetype is about to settle in TAURUS on Apr 19, until May 3.
For 2 weeks only
(since the Messenger is quite swift now – and always fastest between retro phases)!

Quick review: What a vocal, assertive, controversial, and accelerated phase it’s been, with MERCURY in ARIES since Apr 3 – while MARS (Ruler of ARIES) has been in GEM (until Apr 23 still) – ruled by MERCURY. A ‘double whammy’ / ‘mutual reception’ between Messenger & Warrior Archetype – bringing fierce & fiery communication, provocative news & info, loud, aggressive voices & verbal fights into the cosmo-sphere. Yet also a time to find our voice, and speak up, authentically.

Ready to mentally settle, integrate, and ground it out?
Well, that’s what TAURUS offers – usually.

Buuut, MERCURY will pass unpredictable and not-at-all settled URANUS first – on Apr 23, before squaring SATURN in AQ on Apr 25. Not quite the walk in the park kinda vibe.

Plus, as mentioned, even though MERCURY is in slooow TAURUS it’s moving quite fast now, AND will have its connection with the SUN on Apr 18, aka Superior Conjunction, at the very end of ARIES, on the ‘Settling Point’ cusp to TAU. The SC is the point furthest away from Mercury retro / right between retro phases.

Some paradoxes right there… for the mercurial Messenger-Alchemist to reconcile…

Purple Delights (with grounded yet light ‘winged’ sandals) – Photo by Melanie 

TAU is grounded, slow, sensual, embodied, communicates and learns through all the senses, and not just via the brain.    

Don’t chew on things too much with your mind. Ask the body!

Smell the grass, the Spring, the Roses. Be in the Camas fields if you’re in Victoria. Good Medicine for the otherwise too overrated and busy brain!  

And:
How about experiencing EmBodying Astrology during that phase?  
Here’s a short clip to show you the lay of the land…
 

Patience is a good TAU virtue too, and can allow to relax and slow down the pace…
Which many of us have been already doing – for ONE YEAR, given the isolation / shut down mode.

Others have been balancing / compensating under MERCURY in MARS ruled ARIES with fast-shooting & controversial if not confrontational mental action / output.    

TAURUS is a fixed energy that can settle into or get stuck in what it considers enjoyable, comfortable, or simply habitual.

MERCURY in TAU can become stubborn and insist on sticking to one’s mind-set, yet also bring us back to embodied common (nowadays un-common) sense. I’m all for the latter.

Together with the Awakener URANUS now in TAU, met by MERCURY on Apr 23, the Buddhist wisdom teachings 101 re: attachments are very apropos (and a good call for TAURUS anyway). And likely coming up big time with the SCO – TAU Full Moon / Wesak Moon aka Full Moon of the Buddha, on Apr 26.


First step is to acknowledge our attachment to getting what we want, or to being stuck with what we don’t want, and to realize that it is the attachment that causes the suffering, not the ‘thing’ in itself.

How can we release / free ourselves from attachment?
The realization of how it all works is already a huge freedom catalyst – for me anyway. Basically noticing: Hey, I’m doing this to myself. It’s not the situation, it’s what my mind makes out of it that causes the frustration.

Also, a key piece is to embrace impermanence.
No pain, problem, discomfort lasts forever. No pleasure and enjoyment either. So let’s not get so worked up and graspy or resistant, and relax in the ‘storm’. Which naturally allows for the liberating process to go where it needs to go.

We can turn to and feed ourselves with what we truly value and enjoy (TAU) without compulsion, attachment, or other fixations.

LILITH is now in TAU (Oct 21, 2020 – July 18, 2021) – Wild & thriving in Nature… and in our True Nature. LILITH will be activated by MERCURY on Apr 29 – giving our wild, free, unconditioned Nature a voice.

Diversity of Bright Beauty –
photo by moi, this week

What could alignment with MERCURY in TAURUS look like?

  • Sloooowing down, tuning into the Body and our Senses. 
  • Asking ourselves: Where do I physically belong, and need to ground myself?
  • Maybe we need to take ourselves to magical spots.  And of course, magic implies surprises and can’t be planned. 
  • Letting go of being attached to and stuck in (TAU low vibe) mental (MERCURY) patterns, habits (TAU), gravitations, ruts.
    In fact, let’s get un-stuck. Very timely now. 
  • Buying less, enjoying more.
    Great opportunity / state of affairs in the present lock-down. 
  • The mind habitually attaches itself randomly to things that we have an affinity to, desire for, aversion against, and presents them as interesting / desirable to engage in (almost like a shop keeper presenting his window display) – very Taurean. Our habit is to give in, and engage mentally with those ‘offers’. Our job and in fact freedom is ‘just’ not to buy it. 
  • Let’s tune into what brings us true intrinsic joy (not derived from ‘getting’ and consuming more on the outer level). 
  • Let’s re-connect with what we truly value. 
  • Let’s follow the messages (MERCURY) of the Body (TAU).
    Which can re-attune us, and shift a lot quite fast – paradoxically.

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in TAURUS

APR 19
MERCURY enters TAU – on the same day when the SUN enters TAU
Slow down, relax, enJoy life, communicate with and through the body.

APR 23
MERCURY in TAU passes URANUS
What’s new and exciting / thrilling / disruptive? How can you calm the mind in the ‘storm’?
And: EnJoy without attachment. Freedom from the Known.

APR 25
MERCURY in TAU meets VENUS, after both square SATURN in AQ
It’s Spring – calling to enJoy Life and Nature in her blossoming beauty.

Yet… that dark cloud hanging over Humanity… Good to be clear, yet not live in fear.
Rules & restrictions meeting / clashing with resistance…
As hard as it is – no need for attachment / resistance / judgment / censoring / ‘othering’. What would Love say?

APR 29
MERCURY in TAU meets LILITH, and in sextile with NEPTUNE in PI
Fluidity without attachment to a ‘position’.
Listening to & conveying the voice of Nature and of our True Nature – always ‘wild & free’ & nourishing for body & soul.

MAY 2
MERCURY in TAU in Earth Trine with PLUTO stat. / retro in CAP
Finding comfort in simplicity & resourcefulness. Life offers sooo many gifts. And how can your interest in learning about Earth Wisdom contribute to the Big Change?

MAY 3
MERCURY at the end of TAU in square with JUPITER at the end of AQ, before it enters GEMINI (until July 11 – incl. retro phase May 30 – June 22)

Find your Voice. Ask good questions. Be the Learner.

VENUS in TAURUS (April 14 – May 8) – meeting URANUS & LILITH: Waking Up & Enjoying Life-in-Spring!

12 Apr

Dear Astro Friends on Planet Earth!

Venus Rules Taurus (and the Martian / Aries Warrior Takes a Rest) – painting by Johfra Bosschart

SPRING is already in full bloom here on the Pacific NW, as VENUS enters TAU on April 14!
VENUS is a tad ‘early’ this year… since ‘she’ is ‘ahead’ of the SUN in the Zodiac (TAU season starts on Apr 19).

Ahhhh – VENUS in her home domain of TAURUS!

VENUS’s entry into TAU comes as a sighhh of relief.

Fearless Girl – bronze sculpture by Kirsten Visbal

Esp after the intense squares from VENUS in ARIES with PLUTO in CAP (on Apr 11 – day of the oh-so ARIES NM).

Which could have evoked stressful conflicts between what’s old, established, traditional that’s working – yet changing its form while its soul is – hopefully! – carried over, and the draw to what’s new and fresh and alive NOW.

And an attraction to be in fiercely self-loving authenticity (VENUS in AR) and show up for oneself for / in this acute situation – and face powers-in-charge.
Reminds me of the Fearless Girl who temporarily (2017 – 18) showed up facing the Wall St. Bull.

VENUS, at the end of ARIES during the ARIES New Moon, approached the cusp to TAU which I call ‘Settling Point’ – a.k.a. ‘Stand Your Ground’ energy. No wonder, if fiercely showing up and resistance to Powers-that-be (no more) has come up for you.

Rather than getting sucked into the ‘Old Empire’ and its Power Game modus though, did you let the Inner CAP Sage and the Fierce ARIES Feminine join forces, to show where the Evolution goes, and lead on with Love?

Money / value / self esteem / relationship issues? 
Could have easily been ‘on the plate’ recently too.
The build-up to VENUS square PLUTO in CAP (ruled by SATURN – now in AQ) has shown:
After all those experiences about old Power structures & systems, blockages, obstacles, and control of / restrictions for Humanity, it’s Time to lead on with fierce Love, starting with Self Love.

The ‘Old Empire Expires’.
Yes, old societal structures, esp. hierarchical, controlling ones are changing while still trying to exert their power extra strongly & extremely (PLUTO). Yet, they’re outdated and coming to an end.
As we’re called to no more buy into fear based externalized authority but own our intrinsic authority – together (SATURN in AQ), as we see the bigger picture and context of what’s going on in those systems, and outgrow them (JUPITER in AQ).

We’re not being defined / confined by these ‘old matrixes’ with their ‘shoulds’, expectations, obligations, rules, restrictions, judgment, ‘do it the hard way’ to get approval & ‘love’.
We show up with fierce intrinsic Love that starts from the inside-out (VENUS in ARIES).
Life is NOW, and we’re not into a repeat of his-story.
Time to step forward, with Love!

And now for VENUS in TAURUS…

Time to settle, enjoy Life-in-early-Spring, and our auspicious embodiment – without attachment, since nothing is permanent…
….which esp. URANUS in TAURUS knows & conveys these years (March 6, 2019 – Apr 26, 2026). VENUS meets URANUS on Apr 22 – Earth Day a.k.a. Earth Awakening Day! Wake UP with Love!

This energy brings shake-ups & wake-ups that can be unsettling for the body, for anything we value, for the economy, and for Planet Earth.
URANUS, activated by VENUS, shakes stuckness loose, and teaches us to emBody Love, Light, and Freedom.

Birth of Venus – painting by S. Botticelli


VENUS in TAURUS celebrates the Goddess
in all her expressions of Beauty, Life, and Love. A beautiful, sensuous energy – yummm & ahhh!

Your TAURUS SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets and the House TAU occupies in your chart become a magnet, while VENUS visits, until May 8.

Primavera / Spring – painting by G. Arcimboldo

 


Let VENUS show you how to slow down, cultivate pleasure and the Arts, be in Nature, and let your Earth Body be a temple of joy!

After some perhaps stressful vibes round Apr 22 – 24, mostly a calm, grounding, and powerful ‘weather’ for VENUS in ‘her own’ TAURUS abode (one of the two Zodiac signs ‘she’ rules).

So here they are:

VENUS’s Dates with other ‘Planetary Players’ while She’s in TAURUS

APRIL 14
VENUS enters TAU, just after having been in square with PLUTO in CAP (exact APR 11)
After all those experiences with what NOT to give power away to:
Time to Wake Up and Enjoy Life-in-Spring!

APRIL 22 – Earth Day
VENUS newly in TAU meets URANUS
EnJoy freely and without attachment. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with.
Earth Awakening Day!

APRIL 24 / 25
MERCURY in TAU meets & passes VENUS, after both square SATURN in AQ
It’s Spring – calling to enJoy Life and Nature in her blossoming beauty.

Yet… that dark cloud hanging over Humanity… Good to be clear, yet not live in fear.
Rules & restrictions meeting / clashing with resistance…
As hard as it is – no need for attachment / resistance / judgment / censoring / ‘othering’. What would Love say?

MAY 1
VENUS in TAU meets LILITH
Full-ON Beltane vibes – Wild & Beautiful as-Nature

MAY 2
VENUS in TAU in sextile with NEPTUNE (VENUS’s ‘higher octave’) in PISCES
Relax & be at ease. Open for blessings to come your way.

MAY 6
VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with PLUTO stat. / retro in CAP
Gratitude for all that’s been given over Time. As the World is changing certain things – and people! – are comfortingly solid. Enjoy the good & precious Times! And: Love changes how we perceive the change.

MAY 8
VENUS at the end of TAU in square with JUPITER at the end of AQ
Enjoying Nature – yet also engaging in society & community where SO much is happening now.

MAY 8
VENUS enters GEMINI (until June 2).
De-Lightful Connections.

Where in your chart is TAURUS?


That’s where you look for / find comfort, values, and connection to the Earth.

VENUS in TAURUS in your… House helps you appreciate and attract in relation to these areas of your Life:

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

Wishing you a truly JOYful Spring Time, with VENUS in TAURUS!

Very ARIES New Moon (Apr 11) with CHIRON-MERCURY-VENUS: Fiercely Alive & Activated, in the Love Medicine of Spring!

9 Apr

Dear Cosmic Friend on Planet Gaia,

Blossoming Aliveness – Photo by moi

Spring is here – and Nature is freshly-fiercely alive!
What a Teaching Medicine, showing us how to regenerate and renew, after the cold and dark.
Nature is always in organic alignment with solunar / cosmic cycles, and resilient through adaptation. So much to learn from Her, and integrate into our lives!
OH – and nowadays it’s SO obvious that Nature is free from the calamity in human-to-human / human-to / in-society (AQ) interaction. How freeing to be in full NOW presence in Nature (URANUS in TAU) – highly recommended for daily grounding, regeneration, and overall sanity!

What a fierce time it’s been for Humanity – for a whole YEAR!
Pretty much since the early ARIES / Spring Equinox New Moon on March 24, 2020 – which came with LILITH & CHIRON – the beginning of a wild new world of Medicine – and of finding our intrinsic, authentic Medicine.

Hope you haven’t found yourself in emergency / chaotic survival mode (one of the low vibrations of the PISCES – ARIES cusp: “Am I making it, or am I going under?”).
But blessed to be well, ready to let something new and alive emerge, and get activated – just as Nature does, on-goingly, especially NOW.

If you or your loved ones have been affected by the virus, physically, mentally, or emotionally – and who isn’t nowadays???! – I’m sending heartfelt blessings for a good regeneration of body, mind, spirit, and emotions to you / them – and extending those to all of our Humanity!

Yes, it can be super stressful to ‘even’ get caught in the Corona scare, via exposure to the omnipresent in your face (ARIES) topic in the media. But hey, fear & stress doesn’t help the immune system.
Better to be in healthy self preservation says ARIES.
While being respectful rather than judgmental with each other – everyone is going through their own challenges – and we’re all inter-dependent – invited to co-create in the New Era for our Shared Humanity, say JUPITER & SATURN now in AQ.

It IS a new LIFE now. Let’s show up in our Best!



The crisis is an opportunity (JUPITER in AQ) to reinvent community, as we need to stay connected in innovative ways.

One day and moment at a time, says ARIES.

Baby steps matter. Trial & error is ok.
Every day a new situation.
Just deal with what’s present NOW.
LIFE is NOW.

Bright Bold Beauty (Pink Magnolia is SO ARIES) – photo by moi, just yesterday

As mentioned, last year was a super rare CHIRON & LILITH Equinox New Moon!
The health emergency was spreading like wildfire
(CHIRON / LILITH in early ARIES).

This year’s first New Moon of Spring(!) – initiating the astrological cycle – is the super rare & super boosted ARIES New Moon of April 11, with CHIRON, MERCURY on one side, and VENUS on the other, all clustered around the SUN & MOON – see chart below.

Still, one year later / at the present stage of evolution, and with the experience of a whole ‘viral year’ it’s super important for us not to get infected by the overall primal survival mode responses / reactions (ARIES phenomenon – fight or flight mode), influenza’d by the media bombardment (MARS – ruling Planet of ARIES – is now in GEM – while MERCURY – ruling Planet of GEM – is now in ARIES, a double whammy) – which weakens our own immune system and doesn’t help anybody.

What would be another, helpful vibration this oh-so fierce overall energy can be channeled into / expressed as?

MARS in GEM just squared NEPTUNE in PISCES today Apr 9 (their square alignment only comes once a year).
A conflict between the Warrior of Debate, and Being with What-IS?
Between our ego and our transcendent Higher Self?

Have you been feeling deflated, disappointed, paralyzed, going nowhere…? In communication, info intake and thinking, do you experience overwhelm, escapism, addiction, a sense of being victimized? Or passive-aggressive tendencies? Rather than just giving in or giving up, notice what’s going on when this ‘happens’.
Spiritually, the energy supports inquiring into the Oneness of ALL.

And yes, the ARIES New Moon (ruled by MARS) also carries the MARS – NEPTUNE theme.
What would the Spiritual Warrior do?
How does s/he show up NOW?

Shamanic CHIRON & VENUS Love Goddess are here for us in this – channeled through the Mercurial Messenger.

We can learn so much from the Medicine of Nature, and from the Return of Love – when we’re IN it, witnessing and being blessed by the re-Emergence (ARIES) of Love & Life!
What a resilience to show up again, after the cold & bleak of THAT Winter!
And a whole interconnected (AQ) natural system / network comes alive now.

Reminding us of our own vital existence (ARIES), and our connectedness in the Web of Life (AQ – PISCES). Such a good Medicine, bringing Healing on all levels, always, and esp. in times like these.

And it doesn’t have to be wilderness, can be a deep connection with a tree or other plant, its life force and spirit.
Even with our house / balcony plants
.

I’ve found it SO helpful for body, mind, heart, and spirit, to be a lot in Nature over the last year – in immense gratitude for her gifts.
Let’s take her Loving Medicine
(CHIRON –VENUS) – showing how it does start with fierce Self Love (ARIES).
And show up with the fresh & vibrant Spirit of Spring!

The first New Moon in Spring 2021 will be on Apr 11 – at 22º24′ ARIES.

Wondering about the ‘meaning’ of the alignments of multiple #’s?

The simplest, sweetest hint I heard a little while ago: “You’re in alignment. Or: Remember being in alignment.” ✨
And since GEMINI is getting our attention this year, via the North Node, presently also MARS, I’d add: Those doubles / multiples are also about connecting the dots and alchemizing polarities.

There’ll be also an unusual numerological alignment from Apr 10 – 19 (a once-a-year 10-day window) round the New Moon:

Voila – here is the 

‘Birth Chart’ of the Very ARIES New MOON with CHIRON & MERCURY & VENUS

The New Moon will be exactly at 7:31 pm PDT on Sunday Apr 11.
If you’d like to do a New Moon Ceremony, either that evening (after the NM) or Monday the 12th would be the day.

What a striking concentration in ARIES!

CHIRON, MERCURY, SUN-MOON, and VENUS – sitting in the centre of a ‘Bowl’ shape constellation of Planets – which covers 150 of the 360º, from late CAP (PLUTO) to late GEM (MARS).
No Planets (only the lunar South Node) presently between CANCER and and of CAP. More than half of the Zodiac empty these months (since Winter Solstice already).
As highly concentrated priorities are UP now – presently via ARIES – showing up a-new, self-directed, authentic.
Being the Warrior of NOW.

The ARIES New Moon and Her Entourage

Now it’s here: We’re not ‘just’ in a new Spring, but in a New World – the future of humanity, society, and economy are uncertain. It has all just begun.
Let’s not go ‘rogue’, and into survival / full-on emergency mode with it (definitely a possibility to experience this) but let something new, beautiful, loving and healing emerge and come to Life!

CHIRON since more than two years now fully in ARIES shows how the new situation can make us vulnerable (even bring up prior / early wounds). The Inner Medicine emerges with being direct and authentically ourselves. It’s our life. No fakeness, pretending, hiding. What shows up in front of us leads us to our Medicine. 

And it starts with Fierce Love & Self-Love – VENUS in ARIES.

Time to speak up, and communicate directly and authentically, a la MERCURY now in ARIES (until Apr 18).
On Apr 11, the day of the ARIES New Moon, the Dark-before-New Moon in ARIES meets MERCURY.
Say (or at least journal) it as it is / as you feel.


The ARIES New Moon pulls it all together, and brings it to the point.

It all starts here, and only happens here.
Spring – and Life! – only knows the NOW.

The primary charged theme, catalyzed through the early ARIES New MOON Powerhouse is: 
The multiple square from ARIES (via VENUS on the New Moon day, Apr 11th, followed by the MOON on the 12th and by the SUN on the 16th) to stationary PLUTO (goes retro on Apr 27) end of CAP.

Which can evoke stressful conflicts between what’s old, established, traditional that’s working – yet changing its form while its soul is – hopefully! – carried over (PLUTO in CAP), and the draw to what’s new and fresh and alive NOW (ARIES, esp. via VENUS). Also a attraction to be in fiercely self-loving authenticity (VENUS in AR), to show up for oneself for / in this acute situation – and face powers-in-charge.

You’re the ONE you’ve been looking for – and the one you’ve been looking up to.
As the ‘Old Empire’ is expiring / transforming a la PLUTO in CAP, in square with the NM in ARIES.

Prince Philip passed away today, Apr 9 – just 2 months before his 100th birthday.
On which day, June 10, will be an Annular Solar Eclipse (which has trad. the connotation of ‘The Death of a King’).
Both he and QE II (who turns 95 on Apr 21) have their Rising Sign in CAP.
SATURN, his ruling Planet comes with JUPITER in VIRGO in his 8th – his gift & dharma to be in service to the Feminine – not far from his MOON & NEPTUNE in LEO (QE II also has her MOON in LEO) – a super famous Royal Feminine indeed.
Lots more could be said and analyzed. Maybe at another time.
Yes, he also died under the Dark Moon in PISCES with NEPTUNE – a grand letting go…

Here is his birth chart.

Changes in the ever so ‘set in stone’ British Monarchy are happening… reflecting changes in the world.


Some comments on

Astro Shifts & Happenings,

in the ‘entourage’ of the ARIES New Moon – penciled on the outside of the chart above.
The most striking ones are, in timely order of appearance:

  • APR 6 / 10
    VENUS in ARIES in sextile with MARS in GEM, and with JUPITER in AQ
    Showing up authentically, freshly & newly in community (you & they love it!) – sooo many opportunities to connect & communicate with like- and light-spirited others.
  • APR 9 / 16
    MARS in GEM square NEPTUNE in PI (see above) and in Air Trine with JUPITER in AQ
    Spiritual Warriors – show up, and speak up!
    Big and important discussions, debates, court hearings. Information needs to go out, the systems need to be better understood – and outgrown.
  • APR 11 – 16
    VENUS, the MOON, and the SUN in ARIES in square with PLUTO stationary in CAP
    The end of an old structure / organization in its apparently solid form – challenged by the newly emerging World.
  • APR 14
    VENUS enters TAU (until May 8) – meeting URANUS & LILITH (blog post to be published on Apr 12)
    Waking Up & Enjoying Life-in-Spring!
  • APR 19
    MERCURY enters TAU (until May 3) – meeting URANUS & LILITH (blog post to be published on Apr 15)
    What do You truly Enjoy & Value? How do You EmBody Freedom?
  • APR 24
    The North Node in GEM in Air Trine with SATURN in AQ
    Going into dialogues and learning from another supports co-creation in our shared Humanity.
  • APR 27
    PLUTO end of CAP goes retro (closing the retro free zone since end of Feb) – until Oct 6
    Not giving Power away. Finding true Soul Power & Power-to-Change within.

    Remembering what matters most, at the ‘end of the day’.

MERCURY in ARIES (Apr 3 – 19): New Ideas & Conversations. Fierce & Authentic Communication

30 Mar

Dear Astro~News Friend!

Hope things went swimmingly (rather than confusingly) for your mental surfing, adaptability and flexibility, and has been graced with ease and flow, with the MERCURY in PISCES phase since March 15 – which is coming to a close.
Hope you could forgive yourself and others and could swim away
when entangled in a confusing mental net, and that your imagination has flourished.

Right after the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon, MERCURY the Messenger finally meets NEPTUNE on March 29 – the signal it’s on its way out – or shall I say UP – and emerging from the infinite PISCEAN Waters where we’ve been immersed in, and likely swimming in circles when it comes to news, ‘media showers’, fuzzy communication, and such.


Which was at least ‘only’ on for 3 weeks this time around – last year, MERCURY was in PISCES for 9 1/2 weeks, Feb 3 – Apr 10, with Retro ‘Back Flip’ (Feb 16 – March 9, 2020), while all things viral (PI) got really, really omni-present and confusing.

Cascading domino effects ensued, with layers of unknown interconnected factors and mysteries that may never be resolved – until they’re energetically released and transmuted, a la PI.


While MERCURY is ‘traditionally’ not well placed in PI (considered ‘in exile’ – the Messenger’s gone fishing) it brings up big paradoxes, shows how images tell more than 1000 words, yet also the potential for mass manipulation.

The global retreat mode Humanity has been in, pretty much since last year’s MERCURY in PI (linked even to NEPTUNE) is also very Piscean / 12th house.

It traditionally relates to chosen or imposed retreats, via prisons, hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and monasteries (and yoga retreats of course, as a recent phenomenon).

The Hermit Archetype in Tarot represents this realm / way of being.

At the onset of the collective pandemic panic, I woke up one morning with the Bohemian Rhapsody lyrics swirling through my mind:
“Is this the real life? Is this a fantasy?”
And then, a Corona Rhapsody choir adaptation actually popped up.

Wondering what Freddie Mercury would say or sing nowadays?
Maybe this, or this
?

Stranger than fiction it all appeared – until we got used to it(?)….
Yet, with MERCURY extensively in PISCES, let’s still check out / tune in:

  • What’s the symbolism here?
  • If the Virus was a Messenger, what would its message be?
    Of course, a unique blend of themes for each of us.
    Messenger RNA plays a role in the meantime too. Symbolically: What’s going on in the invisible realms?

Piscean phenomena appear paradoxical, but only to the rational, logical, compartmentalizing mind – while natural cycles allow for ‘incongruity’, in the flow of life.

All the human suffering from the infection itself, and its various snowball-to-avalanche symptoms in all realms of life…!

I’m extending my compassion and healing blessings to ALL!
We’re all vulnerable and connected in the Quantum Field.


Understandably, most of us have been feeling overwhelmed, vulnerable, exposed to and entangled (which is also a Quantum Physics concept!)… apparently a chaotic state – yet it comes with the intelligence of interconnectedness – of everything! Which is ultimately true, but scary for the separate personal identity…

PISCES calls for adaptability and surrender – without going into victim consciousness (one of the old PISCES Age shadows).

MERCURY in PISCES has called us to drop agenda, judgment, and resistance, be open to connections in natural resonance, let go of where there isn’t resonance, and let me Universe talk to us.

Always good to be aware how paradoxical things are – as PISCES shows.
Maybe this last week with MERCURY in PISCES 2021 helps putting things into spiritual perspective – and ‘even’ to see the gifts in disguise…

Miracles and synchronicities have met us too – showing us about the connectedness beyond time and space, in the web of life.
Yet also acceptance and grieving of what presented itself as loss.

How about a MERCURY in PISCES review this week, in the closing / outflow phase (until just before Easter)?

Which can help clear the energy, and heed the wake-up call and awakening opportUnity that has arisen – perhaps even from the ‘mental matrix’ of the PISCES Age that’s rolling out like a big wave now, as we’re transitioning into the AQ Age.

And NOW for the NEW!
A refreshing shift and lift beckons!

MERCURY will move over the Spring Equinox ‘Emergence Point’ from PISCES to ARIES on Apr 3.

MERCURY enters ARIES on Easter Saturday Apr 3 – for a quick 16-day trip through the fresh and fast and sign!

…where CHIRON & VENUS await, since:
On Feb 19, 2019CHIRON moved into ARIES (until 2027).
And presently (March 21 – Apr 14) VENUS is in ARIES too.


The LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon on March 28 activates CHIRON & VENUS.

And the Super ARIES New Moon on Apr 11 will come with CHIRON, MERCURY and VENUS.

All things are NEW and freshly Alive in ARIES.
And MERCURY is the ‘esoteric ruler’ of ARIES – supporting fresh & bold ideas springing forth and coming alive.
“How about this?!” says ARIES.
 

First Flight – Photographer unknown

MERCURY invites us now to connect mentally with the Emergence of the NEW!
An enlivening, activating, quickening energy…

MERCURY entering ARIES is a big shift, and big news. Why?
ARIES is where everything starts – Spring Equinox energy.

MERCURY in the Spring Fire of ARIES is prone to quick thinking, new ideas and inspiration, while directly connecting with CHIRON (Healing, Medicine) & the SUN (Spirit, Consciousness), and indirectly with other ‘Planetary Players’ and their themes.



Here-now, we get the ball rolling, in new communicative endeavours that might require courage – or rather: A fresh mental approach,  simply giving something a try, and taking initiative.

  • Be pro-active, take the first step, start the conversation, make new suggestions.
  • Kick your mind into gears, let fresh ideas arise!
  • Out of hibernation, into action, one baby step at a time! But hey, with ARIES, things can go fast!
  • Any mental projects sitting on the back burner that you’d like to tackle?

Let’s welcome MERCURY into ARIES with all that it brings us, to set ourselves FREE from the ‘known’ and for the NEW!
Which can be raw and vulnerable – as MERCURY aligns with CHIRON and the SUN in early ARIES (exact on Apr 9 – 18).
Show up for yourself, and speak up. Authentically, directly and freshly, as YOU. That’s where the Medicine is.

And see what happens when you get the ball rolling for something that Spirit calls you to initiate.
Things can go much faster now than you thought.

Esp. since MARS (Ruling Planet of ARIES) is now in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY) – hence both Planets are in each others’ signs, called a ‘mutual reception’ / ‘double whammy’ – an infinite loop between them, supporting their themes.

Which reinforces their shared themes and has the effect that things can move really FAST now – which appears quite magical, just like blossoms in Spring! Let’s give our thoughts wings, and set our Minds and Hearts on Fire!

The early Spring atmosphere has quite a MERCURY / VENUS / MARS / CHIRON and ARIES / GEMINI fragrance:

  • New stimulating ideas, attractions, contacts, interests, learning, conversations round healing
  • Stirred up / provoked / sharp thoughts and words
  • Speaking UP does really come up.
  • Aggressive / assertive / argumentative / ego-driven arguments can pop up now too.

Let’s channel the fierce mental energy of the MERCURY in ARIES Messenger / Communicator connecting with VENUS in GEM and MARS in AQ into 

  • Fresh, bold & young curiosity
  • The desire to learn (esp. languages), read & write what we’re passionate about
  • Pro-actively getting in touch (yep, send them a message, phone them up!) with people whom we’d like to talk to, and perhaps cook up some Alchemy together
  • And so important – esp, when ‘mind attacks’ get us:
    Breathing, breathing, breathing with the energy!

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in ARIES

Mostly a light  & inspiring / refreshing / synergistic energy, funneling into a deep / intense finale round Apr 17.

APRIL 3
MERCURY enters ARIES (until Apr 19)
New Conversation. Fierce & Authentic Communication

APRIL 9
MERCURY in early AR meets CHIRON
Communicating boldly, directly, and authentically is healing.

APRIL 10
MERCURY in early AR sextiles SATURN freshly in AQ
Stepping forward & speaking up freely and fearlessly can model to others to give themselves permission too. And if not all is well received or even responded to don’t take it personally or too seriously. Just be YOU.

APRIL 11 – Day of the ARIES New Moon
The Dark-before-New Moon in ARIES meets MERCURY

Say (or at least journal) it as it is / as you feel.

APR 17 – multiple aspected day… lots of movement in the Heavens-as-on-Earth
MERCURY in late AR in sextile with JUPITER in AQ & with MARS (ruler or ARIES) in GEM (ruled by MERCURY), and in square with stationary (going retro on Apr 27) PLUTO in CAP.
Uhhh, the mutually receptive buddies / Messenger & Warrior link up directly.
Take the first step in approaching others, or simply ‘signalling’ something.
A boost for journalism, passionate writing, fiery speeches and debates. Yes, the word / pen / keyboard can be the best weapon.
Dare to think outside the ‘box’ of consensus reality and other conditioned power structures.
Do you have controversial news to share? Speak with deep understanding and wisdom, and share the bigger picture – with the awareness that there’s never just ONE Truth.

APR 18
The SUN end of AR is met and passed by MERCURY (Inferior Conjunction – and half-way point between Mercury retro phases)
Bright and fast and brilliant mind – yet don’t let it run the show.

APR 19
MERCURY enters TAURUS (until May 8) where it meets URANUS on Apr 23.
What do you truly enjoy and value? How do you emBody Freedom?

Liberated and unattached Mind

Where in your chart is ARIES?


That’s where rebirth and fresh beginnings beckon for you!

MERCURY freshly in ARIES in your… House helps you boldly and authentically communicate these areas of your Life:

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

Early LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon (March 28): Renewal in Self Love is the Balancing Medicine

26 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friend on Planet Earth!

Just a week after Spring Equinox (March 20) comes the first Full Moon in Spring, activating CHIRON & VENUS in ARIES, energized by the SUN, and balanced by the early LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) MOON!

We’re in a Wild New World for a year now (in my view initiated by the ARIES New Moon with CHIRON & LILITH, on March 24, 2020) – that calls for Healing, Vitality, radical Self Love, and Balance, in so many ways…

Be YOU. Find Balance and Love in the New.

Easter was named after Ostara!
Yes, Easter is one of the few Christian festivals based on the Solunar calendar. It falls on the first Sunday (Apr 4) after the first Full Moon in Spring (March 28).


With the emergence of Spring, the Spirit of Newness is kicking in, and Healing through stepping forward, and showing up authentically in the New….

… while the SUN, freshly in ARIES, will energize & bring Life Force and the Light of Consciousness to CHIRON, the ‘Wounded Healer / Warrior Shaman (since 2019 in ARIES), on March 29.

VENUS emerged in ARIES too, on March 21, and meets CHIRON on the Full Moon day March 28!

  • Showing up lovingly, boldly, and authentically is healing
  • New Healing Connections
  • Loving newness, freshness, nowness!
  • Come Alive in Love and healthy Self Love!

The exact pre-Easter Full Moon will be at 11:48 am PDT on Palm Sunday March 28.

Easter is the only Christian (adopted from Ostara) Festival that’s based on the Lunar Calendar: Easter is celebrated on the Sunday after the first Full Moon in Spring.

And it’s the 1st of the 3 Spiritual Spring Festival FULL MOONs in the esoteric / theosophical tradition:

  • Festival of the Risen Christ (pre-Easter Full Moon in LI – AR, on March 28) 
  • Festival of the Buddha (Wesak Moon in SCO – TAU, on Apr 26)
  • Festival of Humanity (Full Moon in SAG – GEM, on May 26 – a Total Lunar Eclipse!)

These 3 Festivals also have a beautiful connection with the Sabian Symbol for the Moon (see below).

May we attune to the Christ Consciousness of Resurrection, with this Full Moon!
What a year to resurrect from and rise into rebirth in christed Spirit!

Sunrise by the Ocean, by Vladimir Kush, Metaphorical Realism

The Full MOON in early LIBRA is lit up by the early ARIES / fresh Spring SUN, plus CHIRON and VENUS nearby!
(see the alignment in the FM chart below)

Full Moons ‘usually’ bring cycles to a fruition – to be fully seen and ‘harvested’ (think: Harvest Moon – which typically is the ARIES – LIBRA FM – the one closest to Fall Equinox).


What if this Full Moon actually brings one year to a fruition?


Almost exactly one year since the epic early ARIES New Moon, closely linked to CHIRON, and LILITH, on March 24, 2020 – when the Wild & ‘Brave’ New medical World of battles against an invisible enemy, of (ARIES like) precedents, antagonism and fierce autonomy started… calling us to be in our ‘raw and wild’ True Nature, and find our Medicine of being authentic, and of facing every situation a-new.

LIBRA is all about balance, harmony, choices, fairness, justice, and right relationships.

  • How have your significant 1-on-1 relationships been affected / changed, over the last year?
  • Have new, perhaps more authentic ones (ARIES) come into your life?
  • Have you been able to reconcile polarities and opposites, and be in inner harmony & balance (rather than torn and in conflict)?
  • Which issues round fairness and justice have been ‘hottest’ and most urgent (ARIES) for you over the last year?
  • Which choices have you made / are you making presently?


The Full Moon also catalyzes two Planetary Alignments

…which are themselves inter-linked via ARIES – MARS – GEMINI – MERCURY:

  • The meeting (every 2 years) of MARS – ruling planet of ARIES – now in GEM (March 3 – Apr 23) with the North Node (in GEM June 5, 2020 – Dec 23, 2021) – highlight of the MARS passage in GEM, on March 28.
    Voice your questions, put information out, initiate new dialogues – even (esp.) if it’s a brave thing to do.

  • The conjunction (once a year) of MERCURY in PISCES with NEPTUNE – highlight of the MERCURY (ruler of GEM) passage through PISCES, on March 29.
    Letting go of old energy & mind forms that used to draw / pull / allure us in – via intoxicating, addictive, hypnotic, overwhelming cocktails and ‘media showers’ of influences, allowing us to check out, be victimize-able and manipulation / numbing prone.
    Which is also in a bigger context very apropos the PISCES Age shadow.
    About time to become conscious of it, release it, and not be available to these ‘sirens’ anymore.
    Connecting and communing, and opening of the mind – there’s only ONE of us here….!

With this Full MOON, the tides are high, in the oceans as in our emotions…

Things come to a culmination and to fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon), perhaps from a whole year! – to be released.

The Full MOON will be even in a ‘Basket Configuration’ (see chart and description below). Some of us wonder these days whether they or someone they know turns into a basket case…

The days following the Full MOON come with waning SCORPIO MOON Purging Power
(March 29 evening to March 31 evening), supporting the flushing out of old energies (also great for Spring cleaning / cleansing in the home and body).


Where in your birth (or relocation) chart is LIBRA & ARIES?

That’s the house axis relating to the polar opposite areas of life where themes round Balance, Relationship, and Choices come up / to fruition with the LIBRA Full Moon, channeled into Medicine of Consciousness & Self Love-in-Authenticity (in the ARIES house).

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House
Your Values, your Body, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House
You in Your Local Environment

4th House
You and Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

Every Full Moon has a LIBRA undertone – since it’s about Balance and Relationship of opposing poles (people born under a Full Moon tend to be strongly relationship oriented, and / or Balance is super important for them) – and this one is even in early LIBRA – double LIBRA.


SO much is up nowadays, esp. with so many of us having been in self (ARIES) / co- (LIBRA) isolation mode.  Relational dynamics (LIBRA) have been in our face / we needed to face them (ARIES), and / or we’ve missed dear ones as we’re apart from.
What in us (ARIES) and with others (LIBRA) needs to be rebalanced, and re-negotiated (LIBRA)?
What restores peace, fairness, balance, and right relatedness?

And what does that have to do with healthy Self Love (VENUS, CHIRON, and the SUN in ARIES)?

Whole ‘mini generations’ (people born within 7 – 14 years) have slow moving Transpersonal Planets in LIBRA where the Full MOON build-up and release happens:
URANUS in LI (‘Liberated Relating’) 1968 – 1974
NEPTUNE in LI (‘Dreamers & Idealists in Relationships’) 1943 – 1957
PLUTO in LI (‘Relationship Transformers’) 1971 – 1984

Whether you have the slow moving / generational Planets above in LIBRA (born 1943 – 1957 and 1968 – 1984) or even your SUN, MOON, AC, or personal Planets in LIBRA (which would make the experience even more personally felt) the LIBRA Full MOON will evoke feelings related to balance, choices, relationships, in the area of life related to your LIBRA house – to be balanced with authenticity, autonomy, being truly YOU (ARIES).

If you’re familiar with your Astrology you can prob apply the themes to your chart & life.
If you’re not an ‘initiate’ and would like to go get support you’re welcome to just contact me (licht@islandnet.com) and we can set up a customized ASTRO~ALCHEMY online session. I also have a Crisis Response / ASTRO Focus Offer on until March 31 (see below) – you and your friends are most welcome.

Well – you gotta check out the SABIAN SYMBOLS for the lunar and solar degrees (posted below)!
Their contrast is playing out now strongly, and we Earthlings are called to balance and bridge from within.

Old Stone Bridge in Fresh Spring – photo by Melanie, April 2020

The Full MOON in early LIBRA (with an extra LIBRA undertone – re: harmony, balance, relatedness, matches, social fairness & justice) – will oppose the SUN and VENUS & CHIRON in early ARIES (with an extra ARIES undertone (vitality, aliveness, fresh beginnings) where the SUN is strongest – considered ‘exalted’ – in the Zodiac: The early Spring SUN that brings Nature out from hibernation – New Life re-emerges.

Balance and Synergy, Bridge Building, Best of Both Worlds, as well as Peace & harmonious Stillness are in Super Need nowadays, in a World that turned into a Virus & otherwise battleground.
Let’s contribute / bring balance for these missing energies
, from the inside-out, and via the body.

Let’s renew Life & Love (VENUS in ARIES), heal early wounds and the paradigms of survival and warfare, and show up with our authentic Medicine (CHIRON in ARIES), in the New World that’s emerging!

Let’s take a look at

The LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon Chart

The FULL MOON will be exact at 11:48 am PDT on March 28

Here She IS!
Contrasting a whole spectrum of Planets facing Her.
All contained within an ‘umbrella’ above the horizon, from PLUTO in CAP to MARS / Lunar North Node in GEM!

What a unique planetary constellation, called ‘basket’ (and in this case perhaps: umbrella or Easter basket!).

The Full MOON in LIBRA – ARIES is also in wide T-square with PLUTO in CAP. A challenging cross-road indeed, personally and collectively / historically.
How can we start fresh & move forward (ARIES) in more peace and harmony, synergy and fairness / balance (LIBRA)?!
The key (T-square apex) is not to give attention and power away to forces of Old (PLUTO in CAP), but turn to our inner inalienable Power Source & Soul Force that brings us to our intrinsic alignment in integrity, to embodying a Temple of wellness in wholeness, and to doing the sacred work (late CAP where PLUTO is now has a VIRGO undertone).

The Full MOON faces a spectrum of Planets contained between CAP and GEM – called ‘Basket’.
The MOON represents the handle where everything hinges (very LIBRAN too) and that can ‘pick up’ the rest, with the SUN, CHIRON, and VENUS in ARIES in the centre.
REnewal in Harmony, Balance, and Love-in-Authenticity is the Medicine
.

And you can see in the chart also the MARS – North Node alignment in GEM (exact on March 28!) and the MERCURY – NEPTUNE alignment in PI (exact on March 29), both featured above – time to speak up, open new dialogues, release old vibes, and open the mind.

Let’s see what the 

SABIAN SYMBOL for the Full MOON

which will be at 8º18 LIBRA has to tell us (818 being a very LIBRAN #).

Young Hare by Old Master Albrecht Duerer (original at Albertina, Vienna)

“LIBRA 9°: THREE ‘OLD MASTERS’ HANGING ON THE WALL OF A SPECIAL ROOM IN AN ART GALLERY

KEYNOTE: The need to return to source during a confused search for new value in a chaotic society

There are always moments which focus in our minds the longing to re-ground ourselves in the great achievements of the past.
The number 3 suggests completeness; esoteric traditions speak of the three-fold Soul, or of three fundamental “Rays” — of Power, of Love-Wisdom, and of Intelligence-in-action. Meditation, in its deepest sense, is a return to Source — an attempt to re-identify oneself with one’s archetypal essence of Being, which is triune in manifestation, and now, after confused but challenging wanderings, to identify oneself consciously with this Essence.
The finer forms of one’s culture provide the means to do this. The great moments of the collective past become an inspiration for new, yet sound, beginnings. The seed of tomorrow salutes the seed of yesteryear.

At this fourth stage of the thirty-eighth sequence it is suggested that in the process of “Transfiguration” the presence of the greatest moments of the past is called upon, as Moses and Elijah were invoked in Jesus’ Transfiguration. The seed of the new day depends upon the seed of yesteryear for an experience of the cyclic continuity of spirit.
This is the basis for the institutionalized ideal of APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION, the guruampara (an uninterrupted chain of gurus) of Indian tradition.

What a powerful inspiration!
Is Humanity ever in a state of chaos, searching for new value?!
The guidance is to return to Source – the inner ‘Old Master’
(PLUTO in CAP) if you will – via meditation, and find one’s true Essence and its expressions of

Power, Love-Wisdom, and Intelligence-in-Action from within.

What the ‘Old Astrology Master’ Dane Rudhyar (whose interpretation of the Sabian Symbols I’m quoting here) pointed out (in 1973!),  
“The finer forms of one’s culture provide the means to do this. The great moments of the collective past become an inspiration for new, yet sound, beginnings.”
…is so very apropos both ARIES and LIBRA (incl. the Art Gallery).


So – let’s be inspired by our Inner Essence / ‘Old Master’ (rather than giving power away to external ‘masters’ claiming our energy nowadays), and by artistic, cultural, and spiritual masters of the past – to show us the way through the crisis.

Another association with the trinity (‘3 Masters’):
The 3 Spiritual Lunar Festivals of Spring, of which this Full Moon is the first – here they are again:
Festival of the Risen Christ (pre-Easter Full Moon in LI – AR, on March 28) 
Festival of the Buddha (Wesak Moon in SCO – TAU, on Apr 26)
Festival of Humanity (Full Moon in SAG – GEM, on May 26 – a Total Lunar Eclipse!)

Whether the religious / spiritual / cultural festivals related to the Spring Full Moons are outwardly celebrated by Humanity this year or (rather) not, the seeds are planted within, and initiated & emphasized by this Full Moon and Her signature.

Christ Consciousness, seeded by Jesus Christ in all of us, Buddha Nature pointed out by Gautama the Buddha, and, in evolutionary succession Our Shared Awakened Humanity, come together at this critical juncture – the shift of an era.

From PISCES Age with enlightened teachers and saviours, and spiritual leaders guiding followers & masses, to inner awakened Soul Consciousness guiding us all from within, and bringing us together, on new light frequencies.

We’re in the transition to the AQ Age.
Astrology has pointers for it:
JUPITER & SATURN aligned at 1° AQ on Winter Solstice 2020.
PLUTO will enter AQ in 2023-24.
NEPTUNE will leave PI in 2026.



Let’s see what’s in the

‘Cosmic Easter Basket’ – from CAP to GEMINI:

  • In CAP
    PLUTO

    The Old, repressive and unsustainable ‘Empire’ is revealing its shadow. It had its time and is expiring. Big structural Transformation underway, guided by ancient / timeless Soul Power and Natural Law.
  • In AQ
    SATURN and JUPITER
    Beyond Control of Humanity – to SEE it to be Free. A New Era for our Shared, Awakened Humanity.
  • In PISCES
    NEPTUNE,
    now passed by MERCURY
    Big wrap-up phase for the swimming in the all-absorbing & overwhelming, toxic, contagious vibrational soup. Extending on-going loving blessings to those suffering, yet not getting pulled in and under. Releasing what’s sticky, and opening the mind to flow and love.
  • In ARIES
    CHIRON, VENUS, and the SUN
    Showing up with the Medicine of wild & fresh & vibrant Spring Energy.
    Always NEW, always in becoming. Always NOW.
    Always present, in Love.
  • In TAURUS
    URANUS
    and LILITH
    Embodying Freedom – Wild as-Nature.
  • In GEMINI
    The North Node,
    passed by MARS
    Voice your questions, put information out, initiate new dialogues – even (esp.) if it’s a brave thing to do.

May the LIBRA Full Moon show us how to pick up all the other themes in the ‘Basket’, and help restore Balance!

Last not least (thank you ARIES for waiting; it isn’t easy but was worth it!), let’s also bring into the picture the 

SABIAN SYMBOL of the SUN

“ARIES 9°: A CRYSTAL GAZER

KEYNOTE: The development of an inner realization of organic wholeness.

The crystal sphere symbolizes wholeness. Within the sphere images take form. These images may reveal future events, but more significantly they picture “the situation as a whole” – the situation which the clairvoyant is meant to interpret.

The nascent mental faculties operating through still dominant emotions (or collective cultural incentives) act as a centralizing and whole-making power. What the intelligence perceives in its concentration is the function of every inner impulse and outer events in the open field of a ‘personality’ still unclouded by egoism.

At this fourth stage of the five-fold sequence the new technique required for the development of individualized consciousness is revealed: CONCENTRATED ATTENTION.”

Energy flows & grows where attention goes.
We feed energy to whom or what we give attention to.

That’s where Self Love and Authenticity come in – healing agents.

Seeing the situation as a whole, freshly a-new, and ego-free, suggests ARIES.
Pure authentic Love Consciousness (SUN – VENUS) is the Medicine (CHIRON).


Sending Lunar Love & Cosmic Blessings to you, in newly emerging & resurrecting Love-Medicine and Soul Power!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Which can lead to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel more connected with yourself and with all-that-IS, in the bigger on-going evolution.

VENUS in ARIES (March 21 – Apr 14) – meeting CHIRON: Fierce Love Emerging – Medicine for our Time

18 Mar

Dear Venusian Voyageur on Planet Earth,

…so much cosmic energy has been – since 2020! – ‘locked’ and frozen in the wintry vibes of hard core CAP, recently also AQ & PISCES. Literally 2/3 – 3/4 of the Planets in CAP to PI. Just check out the PI New Moon chart.
MERCURY entered PISCES on March 15 too, see my blog post for it! Yet, it’ll bridge into springy ARIES energy from Apr 3 on.
And the SUN will enter ARIES with the Spring Equinox on March 20 – woohoo! Followed by VENUS.


VENUS has been in PISCES
(‘her’ exalted – most ‘dignified’ Zodiac energy) since Feb 25.
Love IS. Beyond form, time, and space. A connection with / in the Universe…

 

And now for a refreshing shift and lift into Spring vibes!

A welcome contrast and boost for new beginnings, from the inside-out. Yep, ARIES is autonomous self-starter energy.
Lots of ARIES in action, with the AR New Moon on Apr 11.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here (soo ARIES), and roll it back to where it ALL (incl. the astrological New Year) starts: at 0º ARIES.

 

VENUS moves over the ‘Emergence Point’ from PISCES to ARIES on March 21 – the day after Spring Equinox(!). 

 

CHIRON awaits her.
In 2019, CHIRON made
its move into ARIES (until 2027), reminding us of the Medicine of Being Authentic and of Starting Fresh.

 

Fiery Venus – Hubble Telescope

All things are NEW and freshly Alive in ARIES.

With VENUS entering the ARIES scene on March 21, the Heroine emerges, and Newness blossoms – like fresh shoots in Spring.

VENUS in ARIES doesn’t wait to be asked ‘to dance’.
She takes initiative, makes the first step, goes for what she values, is direct and ‘in your face’.


VENUS is in the trad. system of dignities ‘in exile’ in ARIES – furthest away from Her natural Home in LIBRA.
Yet, that’s another box that we’re evolving out of.

The question is rather:

What are the gifts of VENUS in ARIES?
Showing up in new, raw, authentic, courageous, and intrinsically, genuinely beautiful & attractive ways is drawn out of us.
And: Authentic Love starts with Self Love.
Such refreshing Medicine, esp. for times like these – CHIRON agrees.

Let’s be inspired by the emerging Goddess of Freshness & Newness!

So, let’s see how VENUS fares in the Springy sparks of ARIES, directly / immediately connected with CHIRON, and indirectly with other cosmic ‘Players’ in the Zodiac.

 

Here are the Planet Dates for VENUS in ARIES

  • Only one challenging aspect, at her ‘grand finale’: The square with PLUTO in CAP, on Apr 11 (day of the AR New Moon!).
  • Otherwise, mostly Venusian sextiles to AQ and GEM – friendly stimulation that-is.
  • And of course the connection with CHIRON right after entering AR, and the linking into the AR New Moon on Apr 11.

 

MARCH 21
VENUS enters ARIES
Goddess of Spring A-Rising.
Authentic Love starts with Self Love.

 

MARS 25
VENUS meets & passes the SUN in ARIES
Love is in the NOW, and brings us into Presence. Way to BE.

 

MARCH 28
VENUS in early AR meets CHIRON
Showing up lovingly, boldly, and authentically is healing. New Healing Connections.

 

MARCH 30
VENUS in early AR in sextile with SATURN in early AQ
With all those separative challenges and tests for / in Humanity, it’s time to lead on by example, with fierce Love, starting with Self Love. 

 

APRIL 6
VENUS in AR (ruled by MARS) in sextile with MARS in GEM
Talking with cool peeps can be quite sexy. Start a convo – or respond to their stimulating questions.

 

APR 10 
VENUS in AR in sextile with JUPITER in AQ
Showing up authentically, freshly & newly in community (you & they love it!) – sooo many opportunities to connect with like- and light-spirited others.

 

APRIL 11 (day of the AR New Moon)
VENUS in late AR squares PLUTO in late CAP.
While the ‘Old Empire’ is transforming, Goddess loves it when Life takes a chance on re-emerging.

 

APRIL 12
The Young MOON in AR (NM with CHIRON Apr 11) meets VENUS
Be lovingly spontaneous & fresh, follow the Life Force.

 

APRIL 14
VENUS enters TAURUS (until May 8)

EnJoy Life in Spring!

 

 

Where in Your chart is ARIES?


That’s where rebirth and fresh beginnings beckon!

VENUS in ARIES, meeting CHIRON, also in your… House helps you attract in these areas of your Life (which can go really fast a la ARIES, also as we’re in a retro-free phase now!)

… as you show up as YOU, and bring your Medicine of being authentically self loving into the scene:

 

1st House
Via Your Presence and Sense of Self

 

2nd House
Via Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

 

3rd House
Through Being You in Your Local Environment

 

4th House
In Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

 

5th House
Via Your Creativity, Your Playful, Inner Child and Lover

 

6th House
In Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

 

7th House

8th House
In Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

 

9th House
Via What gives You Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, on Your Path and Travels

SPRING EQUINOX March 20, 2021 – Happy Astrological New Year! Happy New ARIES!

17 Mar

The Astrological New Year is on the doorstep – as the SUN will enter ARIES on March 20 @ 2:40 am PDT!

New Life is Spring-ing.
All starts HERE.
Always starts and happens here, in this moment.

Breathing IN.
Breathing OUT.
Taking in the Energy of Life.
Transforming Fear into L*O*V*E.

Being the Warrior of Love.
Showing UP for what shows up.
Life is NOW.

 

Happy New Year, dear Astrology Friends!

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with SPRING EQUINOX / Ostara, Beltane, Summer Solstice / Litha, Lughnassadh, Fall Equinox / Mabon, Samhain / Halloween, Winter Solstice / Yule, and Imbolc.

SPRING EQUINOX is the Day of equal daylight and night hours.

From March 20 onward, the days are getting longer than the nights, as the Sun Light is getting stronger, in the Northern hemisphere.
It’ll be the reign of the SUN over the next 6 months, until FALL EQUINOX.

SPRING EQUINOX is one of the 4 sacred Corner Stones of the natural yearly cycle, and one of the 8 Celtic / Pagan Holidays.

 

Easter was named after Ostara!
Yes, Easter is one of the few Christian festivals based on the Solunar calendar.

It falls on the first Sunday (Apr 4) after the first Full Moon in Spring (March 28).


With the emergence of Spring, the Spirit of Newness is kicking in, and Healing through stepping forward, and showing up authentically in the New….

… while the SUN, freshly in ARIES, will energize & bring Life Force and the Light of Consciousness to CHIRON, the ‘Wounded Healer / Warrior Shaman (since 2019 in ARIES), on March 29.

VENUS emerges in ARIES too, on March 21, and meets CHIRON on the Full Moon day March 28 –
Showing up lovingly, boldly, and authentically is healing.
New Healing Connections.
Loving newness, freshness, nowness!
Come Alive in Love!

Yes, the epic LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon on March 28 will be closely aligned with VENUS & CHIRON!
We’re in for a refreshing ‘game changer’- and a call for us to show up and step forward NOW – after the massive-passive Piscean (SUN, MERCURY, VENUS, NEPTUNE) immersion / overwhelm, and esp. media inundation.
The energy is building and we feel it…


More about the LIBRA – ARIES Equinoctial Full Moon in the upcoming Astro~News post dedicated specifically to Her.

 

Here’s the Spring Equinox chart –
Setting the tone for the new Season

This year the SUN enters ARIES at 2:40 am PDT on March 20.

Just look at that close alignment of the SUN at 0°00′ ARIES – wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point’ where Life Awakens and Arises – next to VENUS one more day on the Piscean side of it, and CHIRON at 8°20′ AR, eagerly awaiting both!

 

At Spring Equinox, New Life (ARIES) emerges out of the PISCEAN unifying waters of Oneness…

Or, after a very PISCEAN season (Feb 18 – March 20, 2021) – albeit not AS intense as in 2020 -, out of overwhelming & drowning energies of everything connecting with everything – creating domino effects, dominated by the invisible yet pervasive that’s been spreading across physical borders and boundaries. But also otherwise, in our lived experience.

The stressful socially pervasive scenario on the ‘Emergence Point’ can also turn into a ‘Survival Point’…


Rather than being in ‘survival mode’,

  • Can you tune into the Life Force that naturally energizes you – and is also an expression of your Inner Healer (CHIRON) and of Love that starts with Self-Love (VENUS into ARIES)?!
  • What’s the Medicine that emerges authentically & originally out of YOU, as a Living Breathing Being here-now?

New Life arises so unstoppably now in Nature.

Time for us humans to rise again, into the freshness, newness and NOWness of Life, open to the Light.
So let’s bravely show up as we are, wherever we are.
For ourselves. For one another. For and as LIFE.

Showing up a-NEW authentically / originally as we are is the Medicine!

And Nature Herself is so healing, and teaching us so much these days – I’m immensely grateful!  🌿♈️

…and URANUS now in TAURUS cooperates, by kicking us out of old habits, stuckness, and attachments, to EmBody Freedom!
Out of the Old Paradigm. Into a New Way of Being!

 

MERCURY is now (March 15 – Apr 4) in PISCES.
Not as super long as last year (Feb 3 – Apr 10, 2020, incl. retro phase).
Have you been able to be in an open mind, flexibly-fluid, receive messages, not let things stick, and offer old mind-sets to be released (despite everything going on in the omni-present media ‘storm’! – very apropos MERCURYin PI)?

Well, PISCES is SO counter-intuitive / paradoxical.

Going with the flow, yet not going with the ‘mainstream’ / the consensus reality but seeing Life as a Metaphor…
What if what happens in 2020-21 was a dream, a symbolism for something? What’s the message?!
Being open to receive downloads from the multi-dimensional ‘field’, rather than taking things at ‘face value’ is the way to let-go.
No, I don’t mean escaping or spiritually by-passing – a fine line when we’re overwhelmed. Open curiosity is the key.

MERCURY will on March 29 unite with NEPTUNE, and help us with awareness about and letting go of old energy & mind forms that used to draw / pull / allure us in – almost in an intoxicating and addictive way – and perhaps allowed us to check out, be victimize-able and manipulation / numbing prone / overwhelmed by a cocktail of influences.

Very apropos also the release of the PISCES Age shadow.

Now we can see those patterns more clearly – the first step to becoming FREE.
And compassion can be so much better expressed and shared from that place (rather than from ‘under water’).

NO Planet is presently retro

Until April 27 when PLUTO goes retro end of CAP.
Sooo, things can move forward and manifest faster than ‘usual’ in the outer expression.
With the emphasis on ARIES:
What’s New and Fresh, Here-NOW?
FREE to BE!

Lots of AIR in the Air, and setting the tone for Spring

MARS in GEM (March 3 – Apr 23), at Spring Equinox also the waxing MOON in GEM, surrounding the North Node (since June 5, 2020, until Dec 23, 2021 in GEM) which MARS will pass (every 2 years and 2 months) on March 28.

Much needed:
Enlivening energies, literally fresh Spring Air, questions, discussions and dialogues, listening and learning, information that changes the picture and the old narrative (SAG), belief, agenda, stories.

Speaking UP will come even more into the picture when MERCURY will be in (Mars ruled) ARIES (Apr 3 – 19) while MARS is in (Mercury ruled) GEM – the Messenger & Warrior Archetype will be in mutual reception then, reinforcing each other.

SATURN & JUPITER in AQ
They united at 1º AQ on Winter SoUlstice (Dec 21), starting a new 20-year cycle, and a New Era for our Shared Humanity.

Spring Equinox as the astrological New Year is yet another initiation of this process – being birthed and coming alive in a much more powerful and nature-ally supported way now than at the beginning of Winter, the celebration of Light – ever so gradually – returning.

Would be another great time to mark it with a ceremony – in community (AQ).

Bottom line: 

Spring Equinox 2021 brings a boost of fresh energy

  • To emerge, in vitality and freshness, and show up with authentic Healing Medicine & Love that starts with Self-Love (VENUS, SUN, CHIRON in early ARIES)
  • To emBody Freedom, Wild-as-Nature (URANUS & LILITH in TAU)
  • To celebrate Our Shared Humanity in community, friendship, group consciousness, and co-creation.

And here are two little Haikus I created spontaneously a little while back (gotta pick that creative experiment up again!):

Here comes ARIES.

Cherry Blossoms
Such de-light-full Rebels.

Cherry Blossoms 
At EQUINOX – 

Come Alive!

Soulful Blessings for Spring Arising in us as in Nature!

End-of PISCES New Moon (March 13) with VENUS & NEPTUNE: Surrendering to Love That-IS

11 Mar

Cosmic and Terrestrial Greetings, dear Astro Friends!

 

End of PISCES is where all comes together AS-ONE…

Out of this Ocean of Oneness arises the One in ARIES, and a new cycle begins – as with Spring Equinox…

We live in multi-layered Transition Times.

Do we ever – since NEPTUNE entered its own Zodiac energy of PISCES in 2012 (until 2025)!

 

This end-of PISCES New Moon with NEPTUNE & VENUS brings it all together – overwhelmingly, blissfully, paradoxically, where nothing is as it seems, all illusions dissolve and all comes together in Love, and we can let go with Love.
Love is all that matters, and All-that-IS.

Surrendering to and in Love….

May this be a beautiful surrender time of letting go and letting BE, opening and receiving, breathing in and breathing out, in the rhythms of Life & Love.

 

 

NEPTUNian Times

NEPTUNE nowa-years in PISCES is perhaps one of the indicators besides others that marks the outflow of the Pisces Age.

 

And even more were ON in 2020:
MERCURY in PI went retro mid-Feb close to NEPTUNE, followed by the PI New Moon with M-r and NEPTUNE on Feb 23, and the VIR – PI Full Moon with SUN – NEPTUNE, on March 9.
The PI – VIR Full Moon on Sept 2 came with MOON – NEPTUNE, while 6 Planets were retro – the tides were going out.

 

The most obvious astrological theme of 2020 was – as featured many times / many ways in ASTRO~News – the SATURN – JUPITER – PLUTO conglomerate in CAP (super rare).
The Old Empires expire – as they show their authority (SATURN) and power (PLUTO) shadows, big time (JUPITER), fueled by Fear (a central SATURN theme – in its own sign CAP).

 

However, the less concrete yet omnipresent ‘atmospheric’ theme of NEPTUNE in its ‘own’ sign PISCES – in 2020 still in the central, scorpionic part of PI (10 – 20º), ruled by PLUTO (a big shadow purge) – has also played an important role, with expressions of:

  • The power of the media to mass influence, inundate, deceive, and manipulate
  • A cloud of doom, confusion, intense / violent chaos, psychic overwhelm, physical loss
  • Addictions – incl. to dark & destructive / potentially cathartic themes
  • The omni-present yet not processed theme of death
  • The subtle awareness that certain issues are by nature out of control…
  • The undertone of grief for what’s gone (is it?)…

 

NEPTUNE moved for its last five years in PI (2021 – 25) this year into the last third of PI (20 – 30º), which is ‘double PISCES’ (and double NEPTUNian). 

It’s all coming together, being washed up and out. Lots of release, and requiring of letting go.
Interconnectedness of – everything.
Personally, interpersonally / relationally, societally, collectively, and spiritually. Esp. / ultimately the latter, since NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planetary Archetype, a barometer of the collective psyche of the ‘Zeitgeist’. 


We may well be in the transition phase out of the PISCES Age.
This more than 2000 year era has been characterized by the predominance of religions, ideologies, and mass movements. 

A powerful orientation towards the spiritual dimension.
Yet also with the co-dependent shadow dynamic of Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour – Martyr.

Which one do you tend to find yourself identified with most?
Well, they’re mostly subtle and subconscious… (which itself is Piscean).

 

Addictions have played an enormous, often compensatory role in the PISCEAN era.
What are you seeking and yearning for?
What’s with connection?
Addictions can be added to the taboo (of the obvious) list.

 

During the PISCES Age, there have been lots of mass movements / mass phenomena, like: World Wars, Communism, migrations, media.

In the realm of media we see lately the transition from PI (one fits all – showering over and influencing masses, the mainstream, and media addiction) to AQ (independent and also radical / freedom oriented media) quite clearly.

2020 evoked and provoked in all of us responses to the Covid phenomenon, to currents in  the collective, and to governmental / admin measures… 
Incl. old PISCEAN remnants of ‘Holy Wars’ emerging from polarization of positions – which also generated social taboos (very PI / SCO) between people who once were ‘cool’ with each other as friends / family (“Don’t talk about religion, sex, and: Covid.”).
The transitional dynamic seems to show up through following / adapting to the collective parameters (PI) vs. perceiving them as curtailing indiv. freedom (AQ), and seeking like-minded others – with radicalization as a shadow expression.

 

Another current example for the transition from PI to AQ we’re in:
The movement towards universal income provided from ‘above’ is also PISCEAN – as socially noble it may be.
Social justice is AQ, yet we’re still in a pyramidal, hierarchical, patriarchal structure here – similarly to religious structures offering alms to the poor (that’s the vibe I’m picking up, anyway). In contrast, independent, co-creative collaboration of people on equal ground would be AQ.

What’s your sense?
How do you see the 2020-21 Zeitgeist in a bigger, transpersonal way?

 

This much for NEPTUNE, in its own sign PISCES (which has many many strands of themes), activated by the New Moon on March 13.

 

A New Moon marks the transition between the Old and the New, so it’s as much a closure of an old cycle as the beginning of a new one. 
Which is also very apropos the PISCES / Neptunian theme – every ending is a new beginning. An infinite loop.

B.t.w., the SUN already passed NEPTUNE on March 10, so the New Moon will be slightly, 3 degrees post-NEPTUNE. 

We’re invited to come out of toxic / dysfunctional / shadowy, outlived entanglements, yet embraced by the Web of Life.

VENUSian Infusion of the Neptunian New Moon in PISCES

Sweet VENUS Love Goddess swims these weeks (Feb 25 – March 21) in Her most exalted (cosmo-energetically favoured) PISCES expression – One Love ~ Love-IS.

And NEPTUNE is the ‘higher octave’ / transpersonal dimension of VENUS – universal Love, beyond personal attraction and relationships.

On March 12, the Dark-before-New MOON connects with VENUS in PI, and She in turn meets NEPTUNE (once a year) on March 13, some 18 hrs after the New Moon(!).

Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.
Can it be sweeter than this…
(except in the 7th Heaven)?
Yet, don’t mix up the real person with a character from a / your movie
(which likely is an old, pervasive story).
And surf away from confusing / overwhelming / toxic dynamix and ‘media showers’.

 

The New Moon in PI, as you can also see below in Her ‘birth chart’, not only connects closely with NEPTUNE, but also with VENUS!
So yes, it’s a VENUS-NEPTUNE New Moon in PI.

On the New Moon threshold of ending of an old and conception of a new cycle, that may translate into:
Releasing and letting go of old (perhaps sticky and toxic) energies, attachments (ours to them / it, and theirs to our energy field) and dynamics – with Love (“I only keep the Love, and give everything back to its origin, with Love”).
A good time for loving energetic ‘Spring Cleansing’.
To start fresh, from a loving vibration – and into Spring, one week after the New Moon. 

Surrendering with / to Love That-IS.

 

 

For us Empaths…

Yep, also a PISCEAN / NEPTUNIAN / VENUSIAN theme.

Do Empaths attract / are available to / accommodate Narcissists?
Do they tend to be co-dependent with each other?

Another interesting aspect of this story…

We’re spiritual beings having a human experience.

Some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / atmosphere around us.
Maybe we came with this gift (that can sometimes feel like a curse), maybe it has served as a survival training in early childhood – we learned to adapt – or escape when the situation got too intense.

And over time it became second nature…

 

Narcissistic tendencies (overt or covert) are in my (here simplified / generalized) understanding astrologically an overcompensation of LEO or Solar energy, or a distorted VENUSian theme.

  • A healthy SOLAR / LEO expression is creative, loving, warm-hearted, well-loved and naturally charismatic / popular.
    A narcissist tries to force those qualities onto their environment through their ego – which of course doesn’t work, and is a power trip. So yes, MARS and PLUTO also play a role…
    It’s never mono causal, rather complex and unique as we are individually (so these are generalized pointers of course).
  • And when it comes to VENUS, narcissists don’t tend to trust natural loving attractions between people, and create relationships based on drama and control, replacing the beautiful dance of giving and receiving with an insatiable hunger for attention (in a sense addiction like), since intrinsic healthy self love is lacking.

 

If we, empaths, narcissists (hmmm, if you wonder whether you’re a narcissist you probably aren’t), and all human beings would develop more whole-hearted healthy Self Love a la LEO & VENUS the world would be a better place.

Ask yourself off and on: What would LOVE say or do?

 

VENUS in PISCES (via birth chart, or via present transit – esp. if you have PI Planets, Sun, Moon, AC) can turn in interpersonal dynamics into an over-idealistic martyr, victim, or saviour (old PISCES age syndromes).
Empaths can be prone to that – and attract the other ‘pole’ – narcissists / perpetrators.

 

Not a good idea in general to project all things Love onto the other Person – even if s/he is a Soul Mate.
VENUS in PISCES is much vaster, and extends into universe-all Love.

VENUS goes into ARIES on March 21, day after the Spring Equinox, showing that healthy Love starts with Self Love.

 

Being empathetic / an empath literally means (the condition of) feeling other people’s pain and suffering.
Clearly, in Astrology PISCES associated.

PISCES, the last sign in the Zodiac connects with all the previous ones – the whole cycle of evolution, and ‘gets it’ what it feels like in all these stages, consciously or subconsciously (it’s a mystery)…

Which of course makes PISCEAN energy vulnerable on a personal level, hence it needs to regenerate through connection into the ONE. VENUS – NEPTUNE in PI…

 

Here is a good Empath check list:

  • Highly sensitive and intuitive
  • Highly tunes senses
  • Absorbing other people’s emotions
  • Introverted. Needing alone time.
  • Becoming overwhelmed in intimate relationships.
  • Targets for energy vampires
  • Replenishing in Nature.

 

How do I, the empathic person, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as my own?
And what of that IS actually a reflection of me?
How do I let go and allow things to be washed away?

 

The PISCEAN Fish either go under or jump out of the water in bliss.

Out of Oneness comes the ONE.
Let the Self arise and bring you back to Life!

Things flow so much easier (PI) and the Universe has our back when we’re authentic and true to ourselves (AR).
Magic and synchronicities are our companions, and life is joy.

 

Let’s be in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old ‘sticky’ vibrations.
Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our connection with it / conditioning by it?

Let’s allow things to be purged and transformed.

 

Well, and this is also the New Moon following Shivaratri, the Night of Shiva (March 12 / 13), symbolizing the Union with the Formless (very apropos VENUS – NEPTUNE). No attachments, all impermanent, and constantly transforming.

 

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming.
But we can learn and practice surfing and navigating them skillfully
(that’s where VIRGO comes in) and BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

And sometimes the most loving and SELF loving thing, esp. in co-dependent and abusive situations is to say NO, and let GO – and ask for outside help if needed.

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

Which of these themes are getting washed up for you – to be released?
They can be also seen in your chart – esp. where late PISCES is (Houses, Planets…) – perhaps the most sensitive part of your chart…

Does a connection with the cosmic, universal, unified and unifying PISCEAN Field (transmitted by the SUN & MOON & VENUS & NEPTUNE) help?

 

Time to show and be guided by the…

The PISCES New Moon ‘birth chart’ with VENUS & NEPTUNE

The 23º03′ PI New Moon will be exact at 2:21 am PST on March 13.

 

 

Can you see the SUN, MOON, VENUS, and NEPTUNE in the chart, at the end of PISCES, close to the ‘Emergence Point’ (as I call it) / Spring Equinox Point / on the cusp to ARIES?

The New Moon happens just one week before Spring Equinox (March 20) – another indicator for the paradoxical PISCEAN New Moon energy – it connects endings with new beginnings.
Well, Love bridges it all.

The SUN will enter ARIES on March 20, followed by VENUS on March 21, eagerly awaited by CHIRON – the Medicine of Authenticity, fresh beginnings, one baby step at a time, and of being present in the NOW.

 

WATER (represented by PISCES only) and AIR (represented by MARS / North Node in GEM, and SATURN / JUPITER in AQ) are the main elements. Sounds like sailing / surfing…

Out of vibrations of old & told, and into new loving vibrations (VENUS / NEPTUNE with New Moon in PI) of…

  • Active dialogues, discussions, questions, learning (North Node in GEM with MARS boost, exact conjunction Mars 28)
  • Leaving old dysfunctional systems, and co-creating anew, with like- and light-spirited others, for a better future of our shared Humanity – both a necessity (SATURN) and opportunity (JUPITER).

 

AQ Ruler URANUS now in TAU, this year met by LILITH keeps calling us to emBody Freedom.

 

Blessings for the end-of-PISCES New Moon – the last New Moon in Winter (what a Winter!) with VENUS & NEPTUNE – reaching over to fresh ARIES energy!
May the Old be released with Love!
And may our vibrations attract the fresh and New!

ASTRO~CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Which can lead to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel more connected with yourself and with all-that-IS, in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

I welcome you as a client who is not seeking an ‘old school reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transition, stuckness, transformational crisis, for new perspectives at a crossroad or dilemma, and for important choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

MERCURY in PISCES (March 15 – Apr 3): Openness, Fluidity, Ambiguity, and Meta-Morphing of the Mind

10 Mar

Oceanic Quantum Greetings, dear Cosmic Friends!

This happens shortly after the PISCES New Moon on March 13!

MERCURY at the very end of AQ will go out of the post-retro ‘shadow’ on March 14 – marking not only the full integration (noticing it?) of the MERCURY retro zone but also of the super long phase of MERCURY in AQ – since Jan 8(!).

 

“How can I be connected with the Quantum Field?” you may ask….
You ARE IN the Quantum Field.
That’s like a dolphin asking, “How can I be connected with the ocean?”

On March 15, MERCURY swims over to PISCES.

This year for much shorter (less than 3 weeks) than in the last two years…

…when MERCURY was going retro in PI, esp. last year.
To the effect of a super long PISCEAN mercurial / mental co-immersion, Feb 3 – Apr 10, 2020.
A time during which a load of inter-connected, yet confusing, and overwhelming information about the virus was spread, affecting us all collectively (PI), and yet leaving many questions open.

Seems like we’ve been in the PISCEAN net / web / bubble year-round.
The role of the mainstream media (PI) in all this has been questioned. New independent media (AQ-PI) have emerged in the process.

 

Will MERCURY in PISCES 2021 help us see the 2020-21 dyna-mix better?
And to disentangle some of the strands in the mental net we might have experienced ourselves trapped in?

Quite the elemental mercurial energy shift, from cool, abstract, systemic AQ – which MERCURY per se thrives in, and has been this year extensively long in, since Jan 8(!) – the average of MERCURY in a sign is 3-4 weeks -, to the oceanic interconnected mystical worlds of PISCES.

Swift, brainy, practical MERCURY isn’t traditionally ‘well placed’ in PI (considered ‘in exile’ there – “What am I doing here..?” “Where’s everything?”). But hey, that Planets-in-Dignity system is yet another matrix.

 


What are the gifts of MERCURY in PISCES?

It doesn’t have to do so much with ‘active / straight-forward thinking’.
Rather, in a ‘watery’, interdimensional quantum way:
Being in an open mind, flexibly-fluid, receiving messages, not letting things stick, and offering old mind-sets and fixed ideas
(yep, those can come up with MERCURY in AQ) to be released.

The ‘usual’ straight-forward communication turns into energetic / psychic tuning in, attuning to, and communing with one another, as Humans, with Animals, with All of Nature, with Spirit and all that-IS, in the Web of Life. 
A wonderful time for creative inspiration that’s beyond words.
For music, dance, poetry, film, photography, and all art as multi-D fusion.
And for spiritual, transcendent No-Mind realizations.

We have only 19 days (short even for swift MERCURY!) to attune to that PISCEAN Space-of-Mind.

Plus, we’re in the NO-retro zone now (since MERCURY left its retro phase / storm early March, and before PLUTO goes retro end of Apr) – things move and come together much faster than usually.

THE window for external manifestations in 2021.

 

Going with the Flow of MERCURY in PISCES

Akrotiri Dolphins – ancient Greek mosaic

As MERCURY goes over the ‘Resonance Point’ cusp from AQ to PI on March 15, escorted by the end-of-PI New Moon on March 13:

  • Whom and what are you mentally in resonance with?
  • Where can you relax, and there’s rather ease and flow (things can be washed out if needed) than disconnect, complications, discord?
  • And where do you pick up vibes (even / esp. via resonance and connection) that aren’t necessarily beneficial? Important to do mental hygiene…

All in all, a mercurial surfing in the ‘cosmic waters’ of PISCES… as (usually winged) MERCURY grows fins.

 

Everything PISCEAN is brought to our mental awareness:

  • Overwhelm 
    What does it have to do with your state of Mind more than with an ‘objective reality’?
    What of it is self-made?
    Why do you overwhelm yourself mentally-emotionally?
    Can it be even an addiction, distraction, or self sabotage?
    Be open and think paradoxically (which is very PISCES).
  • Similarly, feeling disoriented, lost, confused, fatigued – 
    What’s your Mind’s contribution to this?
    Maybe certain ‘issues’ don’t have to be sorted out…
    What’s the not knowing pointing you to?
  • Escapism
    A response to overwhelm, feeling depleted, confused, fatigued
    Notice when you’re avoiding the here & now, and why?
    Maybe a healthy dose of disruption of patterns & habits is actually a good thing.
  • Addictions (to substances, behaviour, you name it…)  
    Ask questions like Dr. Gabor Mate would:
    Not, what’s wrong with the addiction? but “what’s right about it?”
    “Why does it make perfect sense for your situation?”
    “What is it a response to?”
    And: What’s the real thing you’re longing for?

 

PISCES is about letting go and letting it BE.
Space is being created where there’s no agenda, rather natural loving acceptance without judgement or resistance.
Things can take a turn, or organically run their course, just like a wave
.

The low vibration of which would be to passively let overwhelming / overpowering waves roll over you and take you under…
Good to discern
(a la VIRGO – MERCURY’s sign) and question (GEMINI, also ruled by MERCURY) mental-informational waves.
And to tune into Grace – and good music
(tuning into Jazz while writing this blog article).

 

Freshness of the Waves – Photo by Melanie

 

On the note of the former, here’s a beautifully poetic, wise and very apt quote by Ann Mortifee from her book In Love With the Mystery (not only) for this MERCURY in PI:

“GRACE
Grace is undying favour, the unexpected balm of the Unknowable.
Like the air we breathe, grace flows through, around, and in everything. We have only to sink into the deep resonance of this very moment now to receive its blessing. Grace is always present, waiting to bestow its healing breath upon whoever draws near. It is we who must approach in the stillness. It is we who must open to receive.

Grace is a constant. We are the variable. The more constant our surrender the more grace-filled we become.”

 

Neptune Rules Pisces
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

What’s special about this MERCURY in PISCES?

The PISCES motto (ruled by NEPTUNE – which has been in PI since 2012 – until 2026) motto is: All is ONE. And: Nothing is as it seems. The realm of paradoxes.

MERCURY will catch up with NEPTUNE (with approx. 3-day ‘aura’ around it) – on March 29 – let the mind be at ease.

PISCES is the energy before the Spring Equinox where Winter and the old Zodiac cycle are ‘washing away’ and ‘dissolving’, so that a fresh cycle can start. Everything coming together in a ‘grand finale’ where endings and surrendering make space for the New.

At this time, we tend to think, write, discuss, and communicate more than otherwise about themes like:

  • Connections and connectedness
  • Connecting the dots
  • Music, arts, media, dance, drugs, the atmosphere & climate (in a small and global sense)…
  • What / whom we’re missing – yet who’s / what’s always IN us anyway
  • What ‘s fleeting and lost and what cannot really go away
  • New (or: old, lost and found) ideas can spring forth if you allow the mind to wander… 

 

Shadow expressions of PISCES which may come out via the mind, with MERCURY in PI – to be met with pure SoUlar Consciousness:
Overwhelm, confusion, co-dependency, addictions.
Yes, it ‘all comes together’ in these phenomena too, but in a way where we don’t let go… or we might feel like the victim (and ‘bonded’ in that state).

The ‘job’ of MERCURY in PI is to catch the mind getting carried away with delusions, or illusions that it ‘sells us’ as ‘the real thing’.
MERCURY in PI can be quite good at camouflaging, masking, pretending, (self) deception, fantasy and imagination.

MERCURY in PI also RE-attunes the ego driven mind (which tells us there’s ‘never enough connection’) to be the assistant and tool / messenger to Spirit and the Heart (which is intrinsically fulfilled).
Being aware of the mental tricks is the first step into true Oneness (PISCES).

 

MERCURY in PISCES in your Chart…

…can help you become more aware of the energy and vibration of SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in PISCES and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where PISCES is in your chart/s.

And it has messages of connectedness for you, likely relating to the area/s of your Life that the PISCES House is in your chart points to (even though, PI tends to ‘spread all-over’):

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House
Your Environment

4th House
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

When in doubt about the area of life MERCURY swims through your life, or if you could use a conscious cosmic boost get in touch with me.

MERCURY in PI Moves and Dances with other Planets

The last week of March stands out as very Mercurial and mutable (connection with NEPTUNE, and squares with MARS and Nodal Axis). Otherwise, relatively ‘smooth sailing’ with MERCURY in PI.

 

MARCH 15
MERCURY enters PISCES
(until Apr 3)
Inter-connective thinking, elasticity, ambiguity, fluidity, open-mindedness

 

MARCH 21
MERCURY in early PI in sextile with URANUS (‘higher octave’ of MERCURY) in early TAU
Can be confusing & chaotic mentally, and sensed in the body (TAU) too, as in: unpredictable states, loosing stability.
Allow ‘impermanence’ & ‘randomness’ to happen.
Relax, connect, be free – just BE!
Be present  with what shows up in each moment.
Ease of Mind helps with EmBodying Freedom.

 

MARCH 23
MERCURY in PI squares MARS in GEM (ruled by MERCURY)
Bombardment of / overwhelm with information?
Surf the waves, speak your mind, breathe in and OUT.

 

MARCH 25
MERCURY in PI squares the Nodal Axis in SAG (SN) – GEM (NN, ruled by MERCURY)
Don’t buy into agenda and propaganda, old stories and beliefs, esp. those overwhelming, inundating ones.
Question the narrative, ask good questions, and spiritually inquire (ask deeper and ‘meta’ questions, like: “Who am I?”, “Who’s the one experiencing all this?”).

 

MARCH 29
MERCURY in PI meets NEPTUNE
Connecting and communing, and opening of the mind – there’s only ONE of us here….!
Letting go of old energy & mind forms that used to draw / pull / allure us in – almost in an intoxicating. addictive way – overwhelmed by a cocktail of influences, allowed us to check out, be victimize-able and manipulation / numbing prone.
Very apropos the PISCES Age shadow – time to become conscious of it, release it, and not be available to these ‘sirens’ anymore.

 

APR 1
MERCURY end of PI sextile PLUTO end of CAP 
Tapping into Super Power and resourcefulness with ease & flow of Mind

 

APR 3
MERCURY enters ARIES (until Apr 19)
Springy mental Freshness & Acceleration

 

Blessings for this sublime Mercurial-PISCEAN meta-mental-morphing Time!
