Whew! Mercury stationed retrograde yesterday, Mars entered Cancer in the wee hours and the Moon shifted into Libra. The last I like because Libra Moons usually treat me well but the other two, not so much.
This was one of the tougher lead ups to a Mercury Station I’ve seen in quite awhile and largely due to the opposition to Neptune exact on 28 July. Lots of mental whiteouts made writing difficult so I ended up choosing to do simple, routine tasks like picking berries, mowing the lawn, cleaning house and so on. I [...]
Of all the outer planets Saturn is by far the most accessible and easiest to come to terms with. Sure, he’s not exactly a really fun guy like Jupiter but at least you can understand him which is more than I can say for Uranus or Neptune, and he often takes the blame for the trouble those others instigate.
One of the reasons Saturn is not so popular is because we have to work hard to gain his approval and rewards. This is something those with a strong Saturn signature natally – Saturn conjoining [...]
Even though Saturn will not enter Scorpio until October 2012, it won’t hurt to speculate on what that will mean, especially for those of us with a strong showing of Scorpio in our natal charts.
The subject came up because Jeffrey Kishner of Sasstrology asked if he could re-post a piece I wrote on Saturn’s Version of True Love, inspired by Saturn in Libra. One of his readers asked for thoughts on what will happen when Saturn moves into Scorpio, and of course, my astrologer’s brain immediately kicked into gear. Occupational hazard . . .
After living with Saturn opposing Uranus since late 2008, the end is in sight with the final exact opposition between Saturn in Libra and Uranus in Aries on July 26, 2010 . . . just five days away.
This opposition has been heralded by many astrologers, including myself, as the clash between the status quo (Saturn) and progressive change (Uranus). Like most of life, the results are faaaaar less clearly delineated. Let me illustrate this with a brief story about some changes in my immediate neighborhood.
About five years ago, the push began to install wind towers in [...]
This year we get Uranus turning direct, a dashing New Moon in Sagittarius and here in the States, Thanksgiving, all on the same day. Now why do I get the feeling I’m going to be most grateful on Friday! I have been the chief cook for this event for many years and this time around is no exception.
Uranus is stationing in my fourth house and this is the year my younger sister says she can’t eat dairy products anymore so please plan accordingly. I made a pumpkin pie with soy creamer for starters and plan [...]
