Transits

venus_retrograde_rx_astrology_transit_capricornMundane Transits

 

Venus Rx Capricorn is applying to a non-perfected conjunction to Pluto. Venus Conjunct Pluto. Whoever obsessed just prior to and somewhat during  November 21 — will begin to be obsessed about. Turn about, is fair play. Those with Venus and Pluto aspected, are more prone to experience this non-personal (mundane) transit more personally.

A romance right before the shadow period, may not last. But one that starts during it, could.

Personal Transits

This Venus transit, may cause Love challenges for anyone with Saturn Cancer (Venus Opposition Saturn), Saturn Libra, or Saturn Aries (Venus Square Saturn).

Saturn Libra natives are really getting hit (2011 Saturn was in Libra).

This Venus transit, may cause Love bonuses for anyone who has Earth or Water planets or on your angles. You may trine or sextile this Venus Rx, harmoniously. You’ll be in for a ride, and hopefully some good loving, beauty redux, art, and money making merriment!

What to do during this Venus Rx transit

  • Review your love life, and what’s important to you.
  • Sometimes this transit accompanies pain for a love lost.
  • Reach out to a lover, friends, and crushes (past, or present), or welcome being reached out to.
  • Reconsider an old relationship but don’t start a brand new one, or it might be over once Venus goes direct.
  • Alternatively, if a new relationship begins and doesn’t end — it will be likely enduring.
  • Try not to make a decision about your relationship, or lover until AFTER the transit is over. This is a time of reflection, not decision making. You may change your mind later.
  • Any exes coming back, may leave — just as quickly, if they are not of value. Fruitless relationships are going to go bye-bye. Also because Capricorn is a cardinal sign — this is about new beginnings & fresh starts.
  • Write a list of qualities you want in a mate. What you’re willing to tolerate, and not tolerate.
  • Write love letters to your exes, and put them to rest.
  • Do you really value that friend, or foe? If not, kick ’em to the curb.
  • Avoid new beauty treatments, or changes in style. However, go over any beauty treatments that didn’t go well in the past. If any new beauty treatments are given — they could change your look for a long time to come.
  • Say, “I love you” to someone. Especially someone you’ve been with for awhile, or who is older.
  • Get your finances in order. Go back over your budget. Look at how to increase your wealth.
  • Go to an art gallery. If you’re creative, artistic, or crafty — you’ve probably in a slump for awhile. This is your chance to get your mojo back.

    The Fixed Star Capulus: Off with their Heads, and the Male Temperament and Sexual Energy of Capulus Women!

    Fixed Star Capulus 23° or 24° Taurus

    Last month I wrote an article titled, Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol

    After I wrote it, I realized my question about my own involvement with Algol men had not been fully answered.  That’s when I started to take a closer look at Capulus. I don’t have Algol in aspect, or paran to any of my planets or angles but I do have Capulus Conjunct Saturn in the 4th house, but not in paran to anything.

    My first draft was wrote on November 17 2012, and the world transits related to Capulus at the time were: Capulus in Opposition to Sun & Mercury Rx in Scorpio and Capulus is Conjunct SN Taurus within 2°.

    Publishing this on November 24, 2012, Capulus is Conjunct the SN, as is Algol.

    The Perseus  Myth

    Fixed star energy is deeper, and stronger in my opinion, and basically sets the stage for our life.

    The fixed star material I’m bringing up in this article is not easily accessed in talk therapy because it resides as a hidden layer under our regular natal chart (an undercurrent). When I say, “regular”, I mean the standard planets and signs that we readily find in a chart.

    And while I find the planets of our natal chart describe who we are, the fixed stars seem to be the myths we play out, often with our soul mates (SN stuff). Fixed star energy is deeper, and stronger in my opinion, and basically sets the stage for our life. Therefore, it’s very important to know what river flows beneath the sand, and work towards applause, rather than boos.

    And that’s what I hope to accomplish in this article.  I hope that you’ll be able to uncover compulsive (covered and deep 8th house material) behavior so that you or the ones you care about may begin healing and putting an end to destructive myths being played out. But not only that, I want you and those you care about to achieve greatness — to take the next evolutionary step of self-awareness and self-development.

    Many say that myths are untrue. If that is the case, take advantage of that — see what you do,  for what it really is — false action.

    In my article, Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol, I highlighted the Medusa Myth that is the counterpart to the Perseus Myth.

    View images of Perseus (sexual, brave, ego, courage, victory, youth, dare, daring, vitality, strength, virility, potent , fearless, getting the job done)

    Legend has it that “Zeus visited Danae in the form of a shower of gold and got her pregnant with Perseus. As a young man Perseus undertook a mission to kill the Medusa. He was furnished with the sword, cap and wings of Mercury and the shield of Minerva (Athena). He killed the Medusa by cutting off her head and afterwards killed the sea monster Cetus and then rescued and married Andromeda. [Robson*, p.56.]”

    About the Perseus Myth: Greek Mythology site

    To sum it up, for the purpose of exploring the effects of Capulus on a native, an oracle of Apollo told Danae’s father that her son would one day kill him.

    So when Acrisius found Danae (his daughter) had a baby, he cast them out to sea in a large chest.  They were saved by the brother (Dictys) of the king, and the king, Polydectes, wanted to marry Danae but she rejected him.

    Polydectes set up a rouse to egg on the ego of Perseus. He challenged Perseus to bring him the head of Medusa!

    In his journey to slay the head off of Medusa, he received help from Hermes, and Athena (Minerva) — giving Perseus the sickle of Cronos (Saturn) that was used to overpower Uranus and that Zeus used against Typhoeus. Athena also gave him a shield to protect him from the image of Medusa.  Hermes gave him winged sandals. He also received from the Nymphs of the North, the cap of darkness (invisibility), and a “magic wallet” to put the head inside.

    In the end, Perseus successfully slayed Medusa.  He also accidentally hit Acrisisus with a discus in a game on the way back to King Polydectes, and that’s what killed him.

    The main players in this story

    • Acrisius, father of Danae
    • Danae, mother of Perseus
    • Perseus, immaculately conceived and is the son of Danae & Zeus (Pisces transformed into Aries or Scorpio?)
    • Zeus, father of Perseus (Jupiter, Sagittarius and yet connected to Taurus as he at one point turns himself into a white bull)
    • Polydectes, the savior (through his brother) of Dane and Perseus
    • Adromeda, whom Perseus got released her from the rock, and married. Poseidon had punished her for her mother’s misstep by chaining her to rock to be sacrificed to a sea monster.
    • Hercules, son of Zeus and also a descendant of Perseus and Adromeda

    Supporting players

    • Mercury (Gemini, Virgo)
    • Minerva (Athena, Mars, Scorpio, Aries)
    • Pegasus

    • Chronos (Saturn) overpowered Uranus with the sickle!

    Planetary Connections

    While I connect Algol to Mercury or Venus (in aspect to Pluto especially as a square or opposition),  I connect Capulus to Mars / Mercury (in aspect to Jupiter, especially as a Trine or Sextile). Truly these stars are partners: Deep, and penetrating. Alive, you’ll feel. So Algol is like Venus, and Capulus like Mars. Venus Conjunct or Opposition Mars! With the potential of being Venus Trine or Sextile Mars. They can make a good team / pair or be totally at odds with each other!

    I connect Jupiter to Capulus because he traveled far distances, and had a righteous attitude at times. And Mars for the fighting, and brave spirit. Capulus is not hidden. It is in your face.

    “He was furnished with the sword, cap and wings of Mercury and the shield of Minerva. ” This is one reason why I say Mercury and Pluto are connected to Capulus. Athena is connected to Mars (Aries) but Pluto (Scorpio) is the female version.

    A New & Modern Interpretation: Capulus

    Traditional and not-so traditional meanings of Capulus include:

    It causes blindness or defective eyesight (all clusters of stars or nebula have this effect). [Robson*, p.154.]

    Al Biruni refers to it as one of the four most nebulous stars but dismisses the suggestion (frequently attached to nebulous clusters) that it causes blindness, arguing that vision is represented by the luminaries and this cluster is too high in latitude to fall on their path. [2] , Skyscript

    “Primitive male sexual energy; penetrating; ruthless; adventurous; dishonesty; mass effects, esp. meteorological; blindness (spiritual or emotional if not physical)” Rob Tillet

    When prominent in a natal chart it is said to denote adventurous individuals, but also those who are less than honest in their dealings with others. [Fixed Stars and Judicial Astrology, George Noonan, 1990, p.14.]

    Lets find more meaning in Capulus:

    “Capulus, in Latin, means: coffin, handle (as in gavel), hilt of a sword, tomb, scacophagus; halter for catching / fastening cattle, lasso. God’s acre, cemetery, churchyard, graveyard” Source

    “Capulus: Beauty and the Beast.” Abella Arthur

    “Capulus energy is clear. decisive, focused, and possibly even ruthless: an “If it can be touched, weighted, or seen, then it has existence” mentality. Perseus’ sword is the male kundalini energy, the partner to Algol”, Brady’s Book of Fixed StarsBernadette Brady, Page 193

    “Capulus natives have zero tolerance for the monster within others. Any beast shall be slayed, firmly and swiftly. Algol natives, who also have Capulus, are demons and slayers.” Abella Arthur

    “Capulus imparts power of thought, a quick mind, and realization of ideas and plans. There are also indications that you are ambitious, or competitive, which at times can cause rashness, indecision, and changeable views. A love of conversation and debate is also indicated by this star and endows you with impressive speaking abilities and quick repartee. Capulus warns against using talents in a destructive manner, sarcasm, and becoming involved in controversies.

    Linked to your Sun’s degree, this star bestows persistence, endurance, determination, and an ability to focus your energy. Caplus’ influence enables you to achieve a prominent position in your field and may also encourage you to study philosophy, astrology, or metaphysics. Alternatively, this star may indicate success in dealing with the public at large.

    Positive: Ambitious, good sense of humour / Negative: Sarcastic, too competitive, destructive” – The Powers of Birthdays, Stars, and Numbers: The Complete Persononlogy Reference Guide by Geraldine Sullivan, Saffi Crawford — The authors also connect Capulus to the quality of Mars / Mercury but I add Jupiter. 🙂

    “… our hero is not able to look directly at the opponent that confronts him. Instead, the willingness to go on the offensive as suggested by the sword, (Mars), must be tempered by cunning or intellect, (Mercury); otherwise Capulus will suggest a passionate energy which dissipates or turns inwards through a lack of focus.”  , Skyscript

    “These people feel split and are on a quest to find themselves. This unease makes them very driven. They want to play the hero and see themselves as the “good guy”. Some have a love/hate relationship with their own power and may even be afraid to use it. However when they do finally, it is NOT subtle.” Darkstar Astrology

    “The overarching theme of Algol is improper conduct, and Capulus natives persecute (as in, Perseus) that conduct. Some natives, that have both Algol and Capulus, persecute their own improper conduct and this impropriety often generates shame. Capulus (with or without Algol) natives also persecute Algol or Algol type behavior in others.” Abella Arthur

    The Myths

    Don’t stare the monster in the face, or it will be the death of you. Perseus was able to avoid death by avoiding Medusa’s gaze through using his shield to monitor her reflection.

    I’ve found that Algol natives can become narcissistic adults, due to the the smothering and over attention given to them by their mothers — the exact opposite that Capulus natives usually experience (Algol / Capulus natives may experience both extremes).

    Capulus, Algol, and the Medusa myth ties into the myth of Narcissus.  There are common threads between the myths such as Narcissus being the product of a rape, and being a descendant of Oceanus.

    In the Narcissus myth, 1. a sword was involved wherein an admirer of Narcissus (like Algol) was indirectly told to prove how much he loved Narcissus, by killing himself. 2. Artemis (like Capulus) made Narcissus fall in love with himself as punishment for planting the seed for another to destroy themselves. and 3. Narcissus is not in love with himself, but a reflection of himself — the reflection the Algol native tries to project onto a Capulus native or inflicts upon himself if he also has Capulus. In either case Capulus will attempt to cut the damaged parts out, by turning the mirror around.

    Oddly, I have had a reproduction painting of Narcissus and Echo on my bathroom door for years that was given to me by one of my Algol exes parents.

    Information on narcissism:

    Etymology & Definitions

    I’ve decided to take a look at the etymology and definition of Capulus and Perseus to see if I could find long lost meaning.

    Capulus, in Latin, means: coffin, handle (as in gavel), hilt of a sword, tomb, sarcophagus; halter for catching / fastening cattle, lasso. God’s acre, cemetery, churchyard, graveyard

    Gavel

    The word gavel brings to mind the word judge. Capulus natives lay down the law. They are no nonsense ball-breakers! An interesting thing is that I liken Capulus with Mars, and Algol with Venus, whereas the keyword “judge” is most aligned with Libra (Venus) so it’s a dance between these two fixed stars, for sure.

    God’s Acre
    Comes from “German Gottesacker, from Gott (God) + Acker (field). The allusion is that the bodies of the dead are sown in the field in hope of resurrection.” Source

    This reminds me of how the Chinese viewed Algol influence — a Pile of Corpses. Perhaps Capulus takes the bad, and tries to turn it into good. Or Capulus challenges Algol to move to a higher ground, a higher place — to end their misery. Capulus resurrects Algol.

    Perseus

    Perseus might come from the “ancient Greek verb, “πέρθειν” (perthein), “to waste, ravage, sack, destroy”, some form of which appears in Homeric epithets.” Source

    This reminds me of the word persecute: ” to pursue with harassing or oppressive treatment, especially because of religion, race, or beliefs; harass persistently or to annoy or trouble persistently. worry, badger, vex, bother, pester. ” Source

    I won’t let something go easily.  I won’t let someone hide, pretend, and to blame the outside, or shun responsibility for their actions.  I pester persistently.  Yup, I’ve done that.  And generally for the health of both myself and the other as the motivating reason.  In other words: if I don’t care, I won’t pester. But I don’t want to do it anymore. It seems to hurt me more, and not help the other — so working on it through this article to solve the problem!

    Sayings

    Off with his head!

    Stop right there!

    Capulus cuts  off heads through bravery, masochism, lack of patience, self-defense, or ego.

    The overarching theme of Algol is improper conduct, and Capulus natives persecute (as in, Perseus) that conduct. Some natives, that have both Algol and Capulus, persecute their own improper conduct and this impropriety often generates shame. Capulus (with or without Algol) natives also persecute Algol or Algol themes in others!

    Alice in Wonderland’s Queen of Hearts.

    From the cradle to the grave!

    Ab cuna ad capulum means from the cradle to the grave. Source So from Algol to Capulus!

    While the basic meaning of this say refers to ‘a lifetime’ — from birth to death, I also I interpret this as: We made you, and we can break you.

    Capulus is the masculine myth connected to the father (Capricorn), and Algol is the feminine myth connected to the mother (Cancer). Capulus and Algol represent the story of how mother and father makes and breaks their children.

    The idiom, From the cradle to the grave, further indicates how Capulus is the last stop. ie. The buck stops here, and Put a cap on it — other Capulus related sayings.

    Cutting off the Nose to Spite the Face

    Natives with Algol and/or Capulus tend to self-enact the idiom, Cut your nose of to spite your face.

    It was not uncommon in the Middle Ages for a person to cut the nose off of another for various reasons, including punishment from the state, or as an act of revenge.[4] Cognitive scientist Steven Pinker notes that the phrase may have originated from this practice, as at this time “cutting off someone’s nose was the prototypical act of spite.”[5]

    The expression has since become a blanket term for (often unwise) self-destructive actions motivated purely by anger or desire for revenge. For example, if a man was angered by his wife, he might burn down their house to punish her; however, burning down her house would also mean burning down his, along with all their combustible personal possessions.

    In the 1796 edition of Grose’s Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, “He cut off his nose to be revenged of his face.” is defined as “one who, to be revenged on his neighbour, has materially injured himself.” The word “spite” is used in the sense of revenge and “face” is used in the sense of honor.  Wikipedia

    Ball-breaking

    “A ball-breaker is a demanding woman who destroys men’s confidence or it’s a job or situation that is demanding, arduous, and punishing.” Source

    I believe I’m a bit of a “ball breaker”. One of my exes said he was “emotionally constipated” until he met me. He has Mars Conjunct Algol. I imagine, I am and have been the counterpart of Algol men. I’m known for not taking crap.  Capulus is connected to Mercury, and that means that natives with Capulus in their charts tend to be mental slicers and dicers — that, I am. If it smells like crap, it is crap, and the Capulus native isn’t afraid to communicate that.

    Capulus often sounds to me like Cap you-r ass. To me, that means attempting to put an end to a**hole behaviour.

    I believe there might be a strong indication that Algol natives have narcissistic tendencies if not having full blown NPD. Sam Vaknin, writer of  Malignant Self-Love: Narcissism Revisited (and also a self-disclosed narcissist) stated that narcissism is caused by “overweening, smothering, spoiling, overvaluing, and idolizing the child”, and are “all forms of parental abuse.” Capulus natives rarely entertain any of this even if they might fall in love with an Algol native (or be an Algol native who is in love with himself, not really). However, they can be seen as invasive and end up spending too much attention on the Algol partner. As I wrote in Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol, their mate (often a Capuuls one) takes on the role that mother did — at least, the native attempts to create that dynamic as much s they’ll reject it later.

    Capulus natives have strong BS detectors, and will shut down anything that appears as abusive or improper. Unfortunately beating another up, or oneself (if the native has Algol too) can be destructive and not helpful. Having said that, Algol natives are highly attracted to Capulus natives and vice versa as they try to play out their myth to completion.

    In fact, as I dove into my Capulus article, Algol was never too far away.  Many ‘couples or twosomes’ of crime (especially sexual and violent crime) have this combination: Karla Homolka (Capulus) and Paul Bernardo (Algol), Ronald Poppo (Algol & Capulus stellium) and Rudy Eugene (Mars Aquarius squaring Ronald’s Algol) , and Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch (Capulus, wrote masochistic novels) –  Marquis de Sade (Algol, wrote sadistic novels) .

    Lyrics

    Venus in Furs

    Written by Lou Reed

    Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
    Whiplash girlchild in the dark
    Comes in bells, your servant, don’t forsake him
    Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

    Downy sins of streetlight fancies
    Chase the costumes she shall wear
    Ermine furs adorn the imperious
    Severin, Severin awaits you there

    I am tired, I am weary
    I could sleep for a thousand years
    A thousand dreams that would awake me
    Different colors made of tears
    Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
    Shiny leather in the dark
    Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
    Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

    Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
    Severin, down on your bended knee
    Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
    Taste the whip, now plead for me

    I am tired, I am weary
    I could sleep for a thousand years
    A thousand dreams that would awake me
    Different colors made of tears

    Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
    Whiplash girlchild in the dark
    Severin, your servant comes in bells, please don’t forsake him
    Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

    Capulus Women: Role Reversal, Relationships, and Male Sexual Energy

    Polaire dressed in men’s clothing — role reversal

    Capulus women are CAPtivating (to seize, to capture).

    If you’re a Capulus woman, partnered with an Algol man or woman — you’re often working with role reversal. Capulus women tend to have a masculine edge (sexual too), ultra strong, and no nonsense disposition with a tough exterior yet a softness that is clearly seen lurking behind. There also seems, at times, a sadness.

    Algol men tend to have a feminine edge (sexual too), weakened, and victimized disposition with a sensitive exterior yet a hardness is clearly seen lurking behind. There also seems, at times, an indifference.

    Both are intense creatures, and can become vicious when feeling attacked. They also have a crafty / strategic nature.

    Capulus is the masculine myth connected to the father (Capricorn), and Algol is the feminine myth connected to the mother (Cancer). Capulus and Algol represent the story of how mother and father makes and breaks their children.

    Capulus women most likely identified more strongly with their father, while growing up, rather than their mother — yet their father were often unavailable to them or they may have sought their approval. The reverse is true for the Algol male. The mother of these men provided too much availability, and approval.

    A Capulus woman is the counterpart of the Algol male. Algol men need and appreciate that, even if they fight it. It’s the much needed reality check.

    The Capulus native acts as judge and jury, and self-punishes in an honorable way.  Unlike their Algol counterparts, many Capulus women did not receive the nurturing they needed.  This caused them to become extremely self-reliant. They can not only take care of themselves, but take care of others — others, who by all rights, ought to be taking care of themselves. The Algol native, often can only take care of themselves (if that), and when they self-punish it is more like self-berating. It is not honorable, or of a higher mind.

    The unfortunate situation is that in a relationship, the Capulus native will berate the Algol native without being aware of  their self-berating since they do not operate in the same manner.  When the Capulus native punishes themselves, they accept the punishment for any crime (mistake) done. They rarely feel bad about redressing the situation, and take full responsibility for their actions. Naturally, they will believe the Algol native will do the same and trouble brews when they don’t.

    The key is to make the punishment fit the crime. Sometimes Capulus overdoes it with Algol.  Again, because Algol already does self-berating, it doesn’t need any more from Capulus. And it’s especially problematic when the native has both Algol and Capulus in their chart.

    While browsing the natal chart section of this article, I hope you’ll notice that all the pictures of Capulus women show an intense and unabashed sexuality which is often considered typically male. Capulus women ooze sex appeal, without trying. There is a message in their appearance and physical energy that says to the viewer: I’m confident about my sexuality, and you may get to experience it (in some way) if you’re worthy.

    To Algol natives, this is like sniffing candy. What the Capulus woman has, they want. It’s what they are unfortunately missing, as an adult, because of Mommy Dearest. There are mixed up sexual / control themes that he tries to live out with his lover — hoping to turn the tables.  This is another reason why he is enamored with the female’s male sexual energy.  He hopes to turn her back to her natural state, so-to-speak — one he does not fear. So the Capulus woman is to any man, one that is feared yet revered.

    To say the least, both Capulus and Algol natives are intense sexual creatures of mythical proportions.

    Capulus natives have zero tolerance for the monster within others. Any beast shall be slayed — firmly and swiftly. Algol natives, who also have Capulus, are demons and slayers. They can demonize their prey, and slay them when they fight back. It’s quite the dance. The demon slayers would do well, slaying their own demons while leaving their romantic partners alone. That, or using their demon slaying powers in their jobs — where it would be appreciated.

    Sample Careers

    Having Capulus (with or without Algol) is a great placement for a lawyer, judge, criminal investigations, police work, or someone working in advocacy, interventions, or activism. It is also great for anyone who needs to cut through diamonds to find the gems. Business people do well because it requires a certain constitution and ruthlessness to make it to the top. Ruthlessness, as it relates to finding and seizing opportunities quickly and without mercy. Actors with Capulus do well in movies and shows that have themes of destruction, against all odds, or persecution of criminals. Vocalists and song writers do well with writing about heavy duty (and often, taboo) social material in powerful ways.  Michael & Janet Jackson, and Barbara Streisand come to mind.

    Highlighting a Capulus Trait in Famous People

    Taurus is related to art, beauty, money, stability, security, home, values, self-worth, sensuality, etc. Many people who have Capulus (and/or Algol) are also artists, and people who commit crimes of passion (often related to the aforementioned themes).

    The following Capulus natives were fascinated and became famous for their fascination of the heads of themselves or others.  Some natives manifest this fascination in constructive ways, while others manifest it in destructive ways.

    Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera


    Frida had been long since one of my favorite artists so I’ll be sure to write up a blog about her, and the AGO – Art Gallery of Ontario exhibit I recently visited, when I get the time.

    I’m no longer surprised that I had such a connection. When I had discovered her, I had been at the tail end of a very difficult break-up with a Mars Conjunct Algol native. And her and I also share Capulus.

    I am the woman of myth and bullshit. They thought I was a surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.” Frida Kahlo

    Yes, she most certainly was playing out a myth, primarily Algol & Capulus and the myth of Medusa and Perseus.

    Not oddly Frida Kahlo (Midheaven Conjunct Capulus & Algol and possibly Moon Conjunct Algol) and Diego Rivera (Neptune Conjunct Algol) have Algol .

    At the gallery, I was listening to a pre-recorded message by Dr. Salomon Grimberg, Kahlo expert and author of Frida Kahlo: Song of Herself. In it he said, “Diego enjoyed being cruel and mean to her” but Frida “didn’t want to be abandoned” so she “went along with it” and didn’t leave. Algol natives have issues with abandonment. Dr. Grimberg said that Frida abused alcohol and pain killers, and was a “cutter”, letting people cut her, “through her operations”. He stated that Deigo was “as mean as the devil”.

    Frida said of Diego, “I would always like to hold him like a newly born child”. This is Capulus energy of the Algol infantile wounds, that Algol natives are so keen on expressing.

    “Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair” was the first self-portrait iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo created after her divorce from artist Diego Rivera. Renouncing the feminine image depicted in her other self-portraits, Kahlo (1907 – 1954) has just cut off the long hair Rivera admired, and is wearing a suit that was most likely his. Conveying the deep sorrow of her loss, the image appears to express Kahlo’s yearning for the freedom and independence of a man. The large empty space around Kahlo suggests the depth of her loneliness and misery, and the song verse above her reads, “See, if I loved you, it was for your hair, Now you’re bald, I don’t love you anymore.” Source

    Vidal Sassoon

    After watching a documentary about Vidal Sassoon, I decided to look at his chart and noticed he had shown a number of Capulus aspects. So I did some research on other hair cutters, and found Capulus to be prominent.  Unfortunately I had forgotten that I put in a time of birth for Vidal that wasn’t correct.  I still imagine that he has Capulus in paran to at least one of his planets. At any rate, I include him here because his signature very short (male sexuality ie Capulus) angular hair cuts and personality are very much Capulus inspired.

    Raymond Bessone

    Raymond Bessone (who inspired Vidal Sasson) was born on May 11, 1911 and has his Sun at 20° which creates a Capulus Conjunction to his Sun.  At the time of his birth, Capulus was at 22° 57. While Algol has one getting their head cut off (by Capulus, no doubt), Capulus cuts people’s heads off (metaphorically or literally) as is the case with hair cutters, cutting the hairs off our heads.

    God Control & Domination

    Every myth, I have read to-date (less than two handfuls) seem to contain destructive interference by a God. The reason, thus far, seems to be related to gaining control and power over another God through other Gods, demi-Gods, or other earthly creatures. And the outcomes are often vicious, and without mercy.

    Finding Strength and the Lessons in Capulus

    I’ll probably come back to this section.  I’m still thinking it all through.  I know what to do for myself; however, I want to be sure the message I convey to readers is a pure one.  As in, whatever I say is as purely related to Capulus as possible. Because I’m so close to the subject (having Saturn Conjunct Capulus), it has been a little harder to gain the objectivity needed. So refer back to the section: What the Myth Tells Us About the Fixed Star Capulus to gain a better understanding of the strengths, gifts, and lessons that Capulus can bestow.

    For now, I can tell you that Capulus natives are strong of character and often, body.  There is great potential for lifting oneself out of dumps, and achieving great success.

    If you or your loved one has Capulus in their chart, these natives are often compelled to take charge of your life or situation because you or the situation has indicated, in one way or another, that there’s inability to self-manage. Often people reject this intrusive behavior (as they should) but unfortunately they don’t take control so the Capulus native is put in an odd situation of doing nothing when the raw energy of Capulus is to do. So where does that leave the Capulus native?

    Their Algol counterparts need to, without a doubt, affirm and demonstrate they can self-manage and have proper conduct, and when they don’t — they take care of redressing the situation. Because if they don’t there are three things that could happen:  1. The healthy Capulus native cuts you out of their life, and you lose great support, 2. The Capulus native keeps cutting you because they care about you, but you continue to feel wounded, 3. They stop harassing you, but they also start ignoring you too, and are possibly ever-ready to move on. And frankly, they don’t care much about you in this scenario.

    Capulus & You

    Do you or your loved one have Capulus? Yes, you do. Fixed stars usually have a 1-3° orb. Capulus is currently at 24° and moves very slowly. Go see where on your chart 21-27° (depending on when you were born) Taurus resides. You may not have any planets, or celestial items connected to it; however, the house the degree resides will tell you about how and where Capulus can manifest in your life. Do note that Zauruk, and Algol are the next closest stars and are currently at 24, 26° so you may have one of those as well.

    Finding other fixed stars: If you know the degrees of your signs, you can find your sign and degree at Rob Tillett’s or Astrology Notes website for fixed star conjunctions and oppositions.

    Aspect Delineation Sample:

    Saturn Conjunct Capulus:  When you don’t know what to do, this native will. There is karma, testing, captivity, and hardship with this aspect but also wisdom, and valor to cut through and do what most won’t or can’t. Follow through, and carrying out of tasks and responsibilities are of utmost importance. It can cause depression if one is failing at their attempt to successfully cut out the crap. And there will be many blocks, and obstacles.  Eventually, the native gains the maturity and wisdom in how to use their natural parental slicing and dicing skills to help those around them stand on their own feet. This aspect describes a native who believes in rules of conduct, and has a stoic temperament as well as a strong constitution. If people that get close to this self-controlled yet fierce native, don’t have strong morals or rules, the native will enforce their own, upon them, and with great tenacity. They will punish those that won’t or can’t punish themselves. Natives with this aspect can be ambitious, and find great success but only after the feeling that it took so long and so much work to get there. Given that Saturn relates to the world, the native often makes a strong impact on the world’s consciousness, especially for what they say. Valient action, relieves Saturnian boredom, and inspires a feeling of being alive. This native believes in being fair, and truly cares about the well-being of all but tends to be quite the stern ball-breaker and task master — often enacting tough love.

    If you want me to delineate an aspect or angle that is made with Capulus or Algol, please book a session. I know a lot more about Capulus than I’ve written here.

    Eye Color of Capulus & Algol natives.  I wasn’t sure where to put this as it’s a small but notable characteristic of Algol and Capulus natives that popped out at me while doing research on these fixed stars.  While the ascendant, and Sun often describe how a person will look or appear, I have found that Capulus natives tend to have very dark brown (appearing as almost black) eyes and Algol natives have light eyes in this order of frequency: Blue, Green, and Hazel (least likely, light brown) with odd flecks and coloring near the iris.  It doesn’t matter their ethnic background either.  If the native has both Capulus and Algol, eye color depends on which star is closer in orb that will determine their eye color.  Often Algol is the stronger influence so if this is the case, the Capulus (with Algol) native will often have dark blue eyes if not still dark brown. I have no idea why this seems to be the case! If you have a theory, please share it in the comments section.

    This article was inspired and received enlightenment through Sexy Beast — you know who you are and my own desire to fully understand what’s going on! Please take some time, as I have, to share your experiences, insights, and knowledge of Capulus. It’s the best thank you I could receive in thinking of and writing this article. And it will hopefully give you more insight when other readers see your comment and decide to post their own for all of us to benefit from.

    Patricia Sun, Uranus Conjunct Capulus “When women are frightened, they get more verbal, more linear, more rigid, or controlling, and when they are fearful of their security. So that’s why women have the thing of being the nag, or the bitch, or the not nice female energy . It isn’t because she has the courage to complain, or the insights that the man doesn’t agree with. It has everything to do with the fear in the delivery, and the rigidity of the linearness of the delivery…. When women are under stress, they beat up men with their tongues, with their words.”

    Book, Conscious Relationships … “They do [humanity] have to reach conscious experience which is part of the chaos… and simultaneous to this psychological awakening — although it’s very messy at the moment — is the technological leaps where we can be connected. It’s part of our evolutionary leap…”, Patricia Sun

    To put her message within these videos into perspective, Ms Patricia Sun is Pisces Sun 0° Mercury (hence the soft spokenness, intuition, etc.), and Neptune Virgo (linear thinking with an intuitive twist) in the 2nd. 🙂 Each of us has our own natal chart (containing gifts of difference), and Patricia is asserting her wisdom. Patricia is naturally a linear / logical thinking because she has an Aquarius Moon and Venus. 🙂 I have a Moon and Venus in Virgo so I’m quite left brained oriented too. What’s your Moon, Venus, Mercury and if it’s in a water or earth sign are you more feeling or thinking?

      Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol

      Fixed Star Algol 25° or 26° Taurus

      The most evil star in the cosmos.

      I have connected with many men, of importance to me, with Algol influencing them. Recently, I met another so I went to find information about the “most evil star in the heavens” [Robson*, p.124.].

      I’m focusing on heterosexual men and their interest in women because that’s where I have the most intimate experience with Algol. If this applies to women with Algol or gay men with Algol, please note that in the comments field — thank you. In fact, note anything you like in the comments field — such as how you believe Algol manifests in women with the conjunction.

      One of the online articles I most enjoyed reading (great delineation info in the Artists & Algol and Keywords section) was published by Marina of Darkstar Astrology. While reading her article about Algol, I remembered that during my Goth phase (I’ve got the reinvention aspect that Madonna and David Bowie have as we share similar chart signatures) I had done an art and poem piece on the beauty and strength of Medusa without knowing much more than what she looked like and that she could turn men into stone.

      Since a young child I had a fascination with the Medusa Myth, without ever really studying it. My hair is naturally wild and is corkscrew curly. Innately I knew that I was more intense then most of the other children. After reading Marina’s article I realized I may have a personal connection to or I have been playing out the myth of Medusa with Algol men without really knowing it.

      Update (November 25, 2012). See article The Fixed Star Capulus: Off with their Heads, and the Male Temperament and Sexual Energy of Capulus Women! about Capulus, the counterpart or partner of Algol.

      Interesting to note, Jupiter returned to 25° Taurus on May, 22, 2012 (this year)! I wrote about Algol a day after I experienced an Algol influenced male (Article One, and two) and I didn’t even know Jupiter had conjunct Algol on that day! And the last blog post I did was on June 14th which is when Jupiter first entered Gemini at 0°. The cosmos are freaky!

      Today, the world transits related to Algol are:

      Mars and North Node at 26° Scorpio Opposite Algol
      Venus is 27° Leo Square Algol

      Astrologers usually only recognize the conjunction as having the greatest and/or purest impact; however, I read these transits as a time for the Algol male to clean up his act — face the truth, and heal through their own love, leadership, and warmth of self.

      And considering in December 2012, Algol Conjunct SN. Algol may become a thing of the past.
      I think the Algol men, of women who have experienced their lowest selves, will have their Algol ‘put to rest’ and thrown into the “pile of corpses” they once created. Healing is coming. It’s no accident I’m talking about all this during Saturn Scorpio — which I see as liberating and related to maturity rather than restriction.

      Abella Arthur (c) 2001-2002

      My astrology, which may be noteworthy to this article, include: Virgo the Virgin stellium in the 8th house of Scorpio (sex, death, psychology, etc). Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, Vesta, and South Node. Mercury and Pluto, not conjunct, reside in the 8th. Uranus Libra straddles the 8th and 9th with Medusa conjuncting it. Minerva and Athene are in my 7th house conjunct my Sun which is conjunct my Mars. Neptune is in my 10th.Pallas is in my 2nd house in Pisces and conjunct my North Node. I have Algol, as a degree, in my 4th house. It is not conjunct anything though the closest conjunction would be with Saturn, if it were in orb.

      The Medusa Myth

      There are many ways that the Medusa myth is expressed. I’m sure you’ll find many versions. This is the one I’m working from:

      Legend has it that “Algol [also known as the demon star or death star] represents the head of the Gorgon Medusa who was slain by Perseus. Medusa, who was the only mortal one of the three Gorgon sisters, was originally a beautiful maiden, but her hair was changed into hissing serpents by Minerva in consequence of her having become [raped and impregnanted] by Neptune [Medusa is the mother of Chrysaor and Pegasus], in one of Minerva’s temples. This gave her so fearful an appearance that everyone who looked at her was changed into stone. [Robson*, p.123.]”.

      The main players in this story

      • Medusa, Virgin Priestess of Athena (Vestal Virgin) — assigned Virgo, then transformed into Scorpio
      • Neptune (aka Poseidon), Rapist or Seducer — assigned Pisces
      • Minera (aka Athena),Virgin Goddess — assigned Scorpio
      • Mother, the missing water sign — assigned Cancer

      Algol, being connected to Taurus, means that the opposite sign is Scorpio. Given Scorpio is co-ruled by Vesta, the keeper of the Vestal Virgins I liken Medusa with the sign of Scorpio as well as Virgo, the Virgin (domicile of Vesta). Algol is positioned in near the third eye of Medusa’s head. Also, Medusa is connected to Minerva who is (in turn) connected to Pluto. It was in Minerva’s temple that Medusa, a Vestal Virgin, was defiled by Neptune (Pisces).

      A New & Modern Interpretation: The Heterosexual Man and the Fixed Star, Algol

      Finding meaning in Algol…

      “Primitive female sexuality; strangulation, beheading, danger to throat and neck, murder, violence, mass catastrophe; the “Evil One”, the Demon Star; passionate; intense; hysterical. A pulsating, eclipsing double-star also associated with extreme creativity; an expression of the Dark Side…” Rob Tillet

      “Some astrologers say that Algol can indicate a person who stands up and speaks out about injustice which they feel passionately about, and who attracts dificult/intense life situations but who also has the ability to handle them. Negatively it is said that Algol folks will be cruel, harsh, brutal, destructive.” Source

      “The mythological beheading of Medusa symbolizes the ultimate silencing of female wisdom and expression. It is the act which stops her growth, limits her potential movement and cultural contributions. She is obliterated and her severed head is flaunted on the Acropolis and other works of art in pride of her and all women’s subjugation by violent men. She is broken and her body enslaved. Her spirit, her mind, her spiritual powers are killed. Her once honored forces of female creativity and destruction are halted. Her role as dynamic mediatrix degraded. Her life-giving, death-wielding powers and wild forces of nature are controlled, tamed, and mastered by the male order. The cycles of life and nature are made to conform to his linear perspective.” Alicia Le Van

      “The young man finds Medusa on his way to virility. The threatening image of the snake woman is a metaphor of the mother figure. The growing child has to cope with and eventually to emancipate from his mother’s gaze. The separation from the mother leads to the boy’s independence and to the liberation of his sexuality. The decapitation of the Medusa can then be seen as the cutting of the umbilical cord. The mythological story hardly casts any doubt on this interpretation. Only after he has slain off Medusa’s head, Perseus is capable of liberating Andromeda from her chains to marry her.” Laurens de Vos

      “I believe “Algol Conjunct Juno” relates to having a partnership ended through abuse (Juno = marriage, partnership, tough love), an abusive marriage, or severe disrespect of dominant female energy in a partnership.” Abella Arthur

      Algol Keywords by Darkstar Astrology: Creating monsters, Frankenstein, splicing, plastic surgery, mutation, genetic manipulation, playing god, weird heads, unusual hair, abnormal sex drive, perversion, warped mind, exaggerated demeanor, deformities, a creation that becomes destructive to its maker, regeneration, montaging, potency versus impotence, brewers droop, striking, stunning, spine-tingling. Darkstar Astrology

      Caput Algol in Taurus at 26 degrees has long been held to be the most malevolent star in the heavens, and signals beheadings. It is now considered to be a point in your chart that shows you losing your head over something or someone. An aspect of Caput Algol to your Venus could indicate a tendency to fall obsessively in love with your paramours. If you have a tendency to be a workaholic and focus all your energies in your career, that would be shown by a placement of Caput Algol directly conjunct your Midheaven, your tenth house cusp, or your sixth house cusp, which is the sector of your day to day employment. Isabelle Ghaneh

      “The overarching theme of Algol is improper conduct, and Capulus natives persecute (as in, Perseus) that conduct. Some natives, that have both Algol and Capulus, persecute their own improper conduct and this impropriety often generates shame. Capulus (with or without Algol) natives also persecute Algol or Algol type behavior in others.” Abella Arthur

      Diego Rivera (Neptune 25° 52′ Conjunct Algol &  Moon 20° 27′ Conjunct Capulus & Algol), & his partner Frida Kahlo (Midheaven 23° 25′ Conjunct Capulus & Algol). And while Frida’s Moon 29° 43′ is generally considered too wide to conjunct Algol, it is at a critical degree near Algol and just conjuncts Diego’s Moon.

      A man with Algol in his chart fears, yet encourages the deep dark power of the woman he’s mesmerized by. He is drawn to her strength and divine beauty, yet he has something within him that wishes to see the brutality, and dark beauty in her, and he’ll draw it out by any means necessary.

      He desires and admires a fiercely independent woman, especially financially and sexually (timidity being rejected as non-attractive) yet by his own unconscious actions can cause dependence, and lack of confidence that previously did not exist in her but did or does in him.

      I see this as a transference. What the woman has, he wants and the only way he feels he can get it is by taking her power away and giving it to himself.

      With the Algol male, he may lure the Medusa archetype in by suggesting he is benign and docile, and worships her strength, when in fact — he is not and does not. The good old unconscious bait and switch. He is a monster, and he sets out to create a monster.

      The Algol man is also able to get into the mind of his woman or women of choice. He can read what motivates her, and see right through her —  to her weaknesses. In many ways this also makes him quite attractive to Medusa type women who may be difficult to understand and yearn to be known.

      And he can put his woman to ‘sleep’ just as easily as he can ‘arouse’ her system.

      I get a sense that something traumatic (ie emotional and/or sexual abuse) happened to these sensitive men when they were children, potentially with the most important woman of their life — their mother. The Algol man is attempting to resolve his issues (often related to a denial of independence and/or a demand to take care of Mother because Father wouldn’t, wasn’t around, or wasn’t available) with Mother through intimate and sexual encounters with women. To me, this is considered a safe shift.

      Nine Inch Nails: The Perfect Drug (1997), Trent Reznor, Sun Conjunct Algol

      When the Algol male feels seared by a strong woman (what he encourages through his unconscious actions and desires), he will then attempt to cut her power in a musical chair dance of emotional and often, sexual abuse.  The resulting effect is self-esteem and confidence busting and that makes the perceived and hidden inadequacies of the man more tolerable for himself yet he is generally fully aware of sabotaging the woman and the good relationship he actually wants but doesn’t know how to have.

      A man with Algol is only fiercely attracted to the strongest of women. No other woman is worth his time or effort in subduing, and taming, yet encouraging her wild and beastly side at the same time. He wants to own the rabid yet innocent whore when all other men might view her as just the loyal virgin. He can not get this charge from any other woman for he could not then access his often unacknowledged deep desire for power and control of the woman. This is the same woman who would turn any other man to stone but for the Algol male, she will eventually submit and be at his mercy by averting her gaze.

      You’ll find any man, not wanting to succumb to the archetypical Medusa female, will avert his gaze for fear of getting drawn in and fixated by her.

      It is unfortunate that the Algol male feels he has to subjugate or tame his Medusa. But the lowering of her power is essentially due to wanting to regain his own lost power (held deeply within the woman of his desires, Medusa, aka his Mother) due to feelings of inadequacy and fear so he chooses and is most attracted to women who will ignite this dynamic so he can play out his myth.

      Unfortunately, the Algol male is not ever satisfied. He is lustful in his pursuit of the whore while having the Virgin. Basically, at his command, he wants the woman to be powerful or docile. But can a truly powerful woman accept these commands? Wouldn’t she be considered submissive? This is the dichotomy of the what the Algol man wants — perhaps, a fantasy woman.

      And after the Algol male defiles his woman, he secretly hopes she will turn back into the beautiful vestal virgin that she once was.

      The object of the Algol male’s desire has intense sexual power over him that he fears yet is tremendously excited about. But he also feels he may be inadequate — can he live up to her and her desires? If he senses the woman might emasculate or leave him, he may begin to automatically and unconsciously behave in ways that are considered mean, destructive, evil, and ruthless in order to avoid that from happening or happening again (as it did with Mother or was threatened by her).

      In reality, the Algol male is a sexual God, sex Guru, a Porn Star of the morning’s light. He is not inadequate, and has immense personal and sexual power irrespective of the object of his affection. The more the woman of his affection communicates this, it can help heal; however, the male is best to do his part in healing his infantile wounds.

      The man with Algol is often seen as introverted, hidden, and/or reclusive.

      The Algol man knows of his “dark passenger” and he is often drawn to horror, and hobbies that are violent, aggressive, or potentially lethal or one’s that mimic it. This is a  safe way to excercise their demons. Speed based hobbies are also notable in the Algol man.

      Dexter, a TV show speech about the “dark passenger”.


      Looking through the lens of Algol, with a focus on male heterosexuality — learn of Pablo Picasso (with his wife and mistresses), Paul Bernardo (with Karla Homolka), and Jean-Paul Sarte (with Simone de Beauvoir) and their women. All these men have Jupiter Conjunct Algol.

      Note that the Algol man doesn’t seem as moved by the tears of the woman but he tries to understand it. Think Pablo Picasso and the horrific paintings he did of the beautiful women he bed. He put them in so much pain and then captured the pain permanently — MAJOR Algol.

      Agol Mothers Speak

      When I spoke with mothers of Algol men, they suggested that their sons displayed an inability to deal with their life so they dealt with life for them even in their adulthood (such as still buying their 30 year old their underwear and socks).  They said that it was their sons that couldn’t “cut the umbilical cord”. But when I witnessed their behaviour, I saw that it was the Mother who was subliminally telling the son that she needed him to depend on her so that’s what he gave or gives her.  She just can’t let go, and it’s often only in death that the son feels free of her clutches. One mother finally admitted that when she separated from her son’s father, she was worried that she was leaning on her son too much since she was so used to making decisions with her husband, who was no longer around.  It’s a twisted and complex web that is weaved but clearly both mother and son participate in the son’s downfall. And it is ultimately the son that must find the courage and conviction to separate from his mother by separating the mother from his wife, lover, or girlfriend without destroying the relationship he has with these women.

      Note: Algol mothers often don’t want or can’t bare their sons making any mistakes so they make decisions for them.  Then when these boys grow up to be men, they are not equipped to make good decisions or take care of their lives, or their wives.  This is where the lover, girlfriend, wife, or partner of the Algol male takes over, and where resentment begins for the male.  He, yet again, is told how to run his life and he doesn’t like it one bit. The problem? The Algol male is attracted to what he knows in a woman — his mother. He often attracts Capulus or Algol women.

      Sexual Control

      Nine Inch Nails: Closer (Uncensored) (1994), Trent Reznor – Sun Conjunct Algol

      Freud would find joy in me saying that even if a male with Algol doesn’t have overt sexual desires of dominance, it still lurks beneath and often rules many of his aggressive and emotional impulses towards females.

      Neptune rules Pisces. When we think of Pisces, we may think of words like submissive, docile, and uncertain yet Neptune (aka Poseidon) raped Medusa and that delivered her to the fate of being turned from a beautiful, chaste, loyal, servicing, and pure woman (Virgo) into an ugly, defiled, betrayed, and rabid whore (a side of Scorpio) who has been marked with pregnancy.

      Scorpio is the opposite of Taurus! Taurus is in Algol.

      Algol is like Mercury or Venus in aspect to Pluto especially as a square or opposition.

      “In 1940, Sigmund Freud’s Das Medusenhaupt (Medusa’s Head) was published posthumously. This article laid the framework for his significant contribution to a body of criticism surrounding the monster. Medusa is presented as “the supreme talisman who provides the image of castration — associated in the child’s mind with the discovery of maternal sexuality — and its denial.“[9] Psychoanalysis continue archetypal literary criticism to the present day: Beth Seelig analyzes Medusa’s punishment from the aspect of the crime of having been raped rather than having willingly consented in Athena’s temple as an outcome of the goddess’ unresolved conflicts with her own father, Zeus.[10]” Source

      God Control & Domination

      What’s intriguing is that Pisces is below Scorpio as it’s a mutable sign and Scorpio is a fixed sign. Was Neptune trying to reach (dominate) Minerva (1) through the acquiescing Medusa? If Medusa is to be considered connected to Virgo, then Medusa and Neptune were opposites (by sign) and that indicates vacillation between two extremes yet a mindful merging can sear the two together. In that way, Neptune could cross over to Minerva’s domain and merge with her. (2)

      Playing Out The Myths

      Do we play out the stories of the Gods? Do we live out myths and archetypes in our every-day stories? To me, each of us are magnificent beings. Our stories and psyche are incredibly intense.

      Healing Algol

      I don’t have all the answers. It’s through discussion and experience with Algol men, as well as learning about famous Algol men and connecting it back to my own experiences and insights, that I’ve come to understand as little as I have today.

      I feel like there is something deeply psychological about Algol and how to heal it. I’m not trained in psychology so if you have the knowledge, please share the technical terms and meaning when you see it in this article. I would greatly appreciate that as it kind of feels like I’m feeling my way through the dark.

      Questions…

      Can Algol possess or respect both the virgin and the whore in one woman without lowering her self-esteem and power? Does the Algol man reach deeply into the archetype of Medusa within the woman? Can he heal her? If he does, does he then destroy her? Does he have deep insight into what makes her tick? Is it asking too much of the woman to be loyal and gentle yet be a sexual whore and have the strength to be self-reliant all the same?

      By the end of this article, I did manage to come up some suggestions…

      The Algol male is a sexual God, sex Guru, a porn star of morning’s light. He is not inadequate, and has immense personal and sexual power irrespective of the object of his affection. The more the woman of his affection communicates this, it can help heal; however, the male is best to do his part in healing his infantile wounds.

      If the Algol male wishes to end the cycle and heal his wounded experience with his mother or early powerful female caregiver, he can consider completing his separation of mother through taking full control of his life. Through demonstrating he can take charge of his own life, any woman in his life can destroy the role of mother and focus on being the girlfriend, lover, or wife. If the woman continues to take on the role / archetype of mother with an Algol male, she will eventually experience pain and heartache as he attempts to resolve his mother issues with them by cutting off her head or getting to cut her own head off (her ego power) so-to-speak before she castrates him with help and nurturing he can not consciously stomach even if he subconsciously desires and encourages it.

      To the Algol male:  You’ve got a set of balls, USE them. Self-control or be controlled. Raise your own power without taking away the power of another.  Mother yourself, and maybe even mother your lover. Your mother or the woman you love, who engages in the Mother / Medusa archetype with you, can not let you go or allow you to be the adult you are until you prove that you’ll be safe and can go it on your own. No blame. No victimization. Claim your place as a separate and distinct adult, making your own healthy and successful decisions without pushing away the Medusa — face her head on, as an equal. And don’t cut corners, also known as being lazy.

      To women attracted to Algol men:

      Feeling ALIVE…

      In the end, a relationship with an Algol man will be one of the deepest connections you can ever make as you represent Mother! An Algol man isn’t for the faint of heart — only the strongest of women will do for him. And he will respect you as long as you keep strong no matter how much he might try to chip away at you but we all have our breaking point!

      You like to serve and are receptive to being influenced, as was the case with Medusa in the temple.  In your core, you are innocent and naive but as a child you were hurt and left alone to fend for yourself far too often — unprotected and inappropriately used by a strong and hard-to-access female figure (such as your Mother). As an adult, you’re working out the Medusa myth.

      Know that the Algol male desires your nurturing, attention, and firm hand, but while that’s comforting (like being back in the womb), it can be overwhelming, intrusive, and block his man-hood.

      As hard as it may be, it is incredibly important that you be his girlfriend, lover, or wife — not his Mother.

      Just get out of his business, and if he cries about that — tell him that the only way you’ll get back in is if he doesn’t resist or try to control you (that which he feels you’re doing with him!). He has to stand up and face you head-on if you’re the one he really wants — no tricks (like he mirror with Medusa), and in a disciplined and strong way.

      Mother yourself or as strange as it may seem, ask the Algol male to mother you — giving you both an opportunity to experience what you missed out on. You need some tenderness now and then too.  You also need some motherly direction.

      While missing out on nurturing and guidance aided you to become a strong and independent woman, with the freedom to make her own strong opinions and desires, it’s left — below the surface — a woman who desires to be lead and be taken care of.

      So now, due to that deficiency in yourself, you’re overcompensating by nurturing and guiding the Algol male; however, do know that while initially they find it loving and enjoy the attention, eventually they’ll turn on you — resent you — for doing it.  That’s the dichotomy. They desire to be mothered but what they really want is to grow up, and you’re holding them back — just like their mother did.

      So what will they do:  Resist and subjugate you.

      When Algol is involved, the myth played out between you and your person of interest is quite twisty and messy.  It can be hard to wrap one’s head around it.  It’s like a labyrinth.

      If you believe the Algol male is not viable (won’t get his sheat together) in a partnership with you, is unwilling to stand up and be the strong and leading man that he truly is without having to cut you down (in the process) — it may be time to rethink being with this type of man for you’re likely only to end up destroying yourself, while loving him.

      There’s also another side to being attracted to an Algol man and that’s that the woman of his affections realizes how powerful he really is.  Perhaps she wants to turn the tables too and have him mother her (as I mentioned above as a solution).  But instead of him doing that, he is self-focused on getting YOU to stop mothering him.

      Quite frankly even if there are only you and the Algol male in the union, there’s a third presence (even if that presence is within you because you’re playing two roles — Mother and Lover).

      Algol men have edge, and many women are attracted to dangerous men.

      And these men have an ability to see great beauty in your imperfections. In fact, the Algol male often love scars, and other deformities and differences that the woman may consider ugly.

      In the end, what’s in it for you?  And how can you complete your Medusa myth once and for all — with or without the Algol male you may be with at this time?

      Thank you.

      Please take some time, as I have, to share your experiences, insights, and knowledge of Algol. It’s the best thank you I could receive in thinking of and writing this article. And it will hopefully give you more insight when other readers see your comment and decide to post their own for all of us to benefit from.

      Algol & You

      Do you or your loved one have Algol? Yes, you do. Fixed stars usually have a 1-3° orb. Algol is currently at 26° and moves very slowly. Go see where on your chart 22-29° (depending on when you were born) Taurus resides. You may not have any planets, or celestial items connected to it; however, the house the degree resides will tell you about how and where Algol can manifest in your life — it isn’t all overtly sexual (as is the focus of this article). Do note that Zauruk, Capulus, and the Pleiades are the next closest stars and are currently at 24, 24, and 29°.

      Sun Conjunct Algol natives seem to have integrated their Algol in a “what you see, is what you get”. There seems to be nothing hidden and they can ooze sex appeal in a strong and dominating manner. They don’t seem to make any excuses for who and what they are. They tend to celebrate their fierceness and/or intensity.

      If you want me to delineate an aspect or angle that is made with Algol, please book a session. I know a lot more about Algol than I’ve written here.

      Basically I just wanted to make a point with the aspect above that the native with Algol can be very aware (conscious) of their power and natural control (or influence) over others and can use it constructively and without apology.

      Eye Color of Algol & Capulus natives.  I wasn’t sure where to put this as it’s a small but notable characteristic of Algol and Capulus natives that popped out at me while doing research on these fixed stars.  While the ascendant, and Sun often describe how a person will look or appear, I have found that Capulus natives tend to have very dark brown (appearing as almost black) eyes and Algol natives have light eyes in this order of frequency: Blue, Green, and Hazel (least likely, light brown) with odd flecks and coloring near the iris.  It doesn’t matter their ethnic background either.  If the native has both Capulus and Algol, eye color depends on which star is closer in orb that will determine their eye color.  Often Algol is the stronger influence so if this is the case, the Capulus (with Algol) native will often have dark blue eyes if not still dark brown. I have no idea why this seems to be the case! If you have a theory, please share it in the comments section.

      Side Notes:

      1. Minerva is also Athene or Athena. Athena is known to be ruled by Mars. Mars co-rules Scorpio. Isabel M. Hickey wrote of Minerva being connected to Pluto.

      2. Having realized that Neptune was seeking control over Minerva (Athena, Pluto) I decided to do a search on the two of them and excitedly found this:

      “Poseidon vs Athena”
      Poseidon and Athena (the goddess of war) were competing with one another for the ownership/control of Athens. Both of these powerful gods strived to win control of this land. To win over the Athenians, Poseidon threw his spear at the ground and produced the spring at the Acropolis. Poseidon was sure that providing the Athenians with this spring would win them over. Poseidon’s donation to the Athenians was good, but Athena’s was better. She won over the Athenians and reigned victorious after her ingenious contribution of the olive tree. Poseidon was so angry at his loss that he flooded the Attic Plain. Eventually, the two gods came over their differences and worked together to combine their powers for the greater good. For example, Athena built the first ship which was used to sail upon the sea belonging to Poseidon.

      And after finishing the article and going over some finer points, I found this:

      “Pallas Athena and Poseidon had a long-standing animosity. Medusa was caught in the middle of their grudge.” Source Apparently Neptune didn’t stop at his antics with only the above. In some ways, he comes across as a whiny baby — how unbecoming of a God or is that quite expected?

      This article was inspired and received enlightenment through the Piries and Sexy Beast — you know who you are! 😉

      Could Algol be a “necessary step in the development of the Self”. Source

      Maureen .B. Roberts says “As a second parameter in the assessment of the overriding effect of pathology, placing woundedness in its mythic context, it’s worth bearing in mind, for instance, that Osiris and Dionysus were dismembered, that Psyche had to journey to the Underworld, that Prometheus had his liver repeatedly torn out by Zeus’s eagle, and that Medusa was beheaded. As well, in terms of the psyche’s ultimate goal of attaining wholeness, centredness and integration, fragmentation is a blow to the hubris of the stable ego, which must relinquish its sense of a fixed identity and must eventually step aside in order to allow the paradoxical Self to displace it as the centre of consciousness.” Source

      “So here we see the fate of Medusa as a product of patriarchy and also as a process to individuation and enlightenment. If that is the case, Caput Algol in the chart may indicate an place where the scared feminine is most potent and along with her honoring can come a more complete sense of self–this isn’t benefic or malefic–it is energy, just as it is.” Source

      “The name Algol, says Richard Hinckley Allen, comes from the Arabic Ras Al-Ghul, which literally means the Mischief Maker.

      Bernadette Brady wrote: “This star seems to contain immense female passion and power. Algol represents a strong consuming passion that may devour you with anger and rage. If one can contain an unconscious compulsion to take revenge, and from that passion return a more productive outcome, Algol is one of the most powerful stars in the sky. Whatever planet it affects in your chart will be charged with strong, intense sexual energy that has the potential to be wonderful, of if repressed, to lead to rage or violence.” Source

      “The Madonna/Whore complex and the dark side of the feminine: … the nitty-gritty, everyday issues women face when they try to own their desire and their sexuality. Patriarchy has a million and one ways to cast us either in the role of the mother or the whore, with little room in-between. How do we carve out our own space and create a more just and creative world for women in the process?” SaturnSisters

      “Caput Algol in Taurus at 26 degrees has long been held to be the most malevolent star in the heavens, and signals beheadings. It is now considered to be a point in your chart that shows you losing your head over something or someone. An aspect of Caput Algol to your Venus could indicate a tendency to fall obsessively in love with your paramours. If you have a tendency to be a workaholic and focus all your energies in your career, that would be shown by a placement of Caput Algol directly conjunct your Midheaven, your tenth house cusp, or your sixth house cusp, which is the sector of your day to day employment.” Llewellyn

      “The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime. The polarities of bigotry or tolerance, violence or kindness, cruelty or compassion, war or peace are issues that are unavoidable and must be dealt with under Medusa.Diana K. Rosenberg Note: This, to me, is the polarity of Pisces-Virgo. Medusa was Virgo, turned into Scorpio, and raped / seduced by Pisces (Neptune).

        Planet, Sign Delineation: Many Ways to Read Astrological Signatures

        (originally posted on Astrogasm)

        As many astrologers would agree, one aspect or signature does not tell the full tale.

        How could someone who loves to sing (me!) actually sound good (maybe) if they don’t have the classic aspects for a vocalist — Sun Conjunct Venus or Mercury, and Venus Conjunct Mercury?!

        Well, my Venus is in Virgo and it goes like this:

        * Venus in the 6th or 3rd
        * Mercury in the 7th or 2nd
        * Venus Conjunct Vesta
        * Venus Conjunct Mercury

        Phew, all from one planet and one sign combination!

        Getting to Venus Conjunct Mercury, with this method, shows that I have underdeveloped singing talent!

        I may not become a superstar vocalist but I do have it in the astrological DNA or as a signature, though hidden! And it’d be better if it were Venus Gemini (as Mercury has a stronger rulership over that sign)! But with practice, and training I might be able to sing where people aren’t trying to run away from my sound. Ha ha.

        Or I might be able to become a one hit wonder (coming out of nowhere, the underdog!). 🙂

        As probably can be discerned, one aspect or astrological signature can open the reader and seeker to so much more. That’s one reason why astrology is complex (yet simple, at the same time).

        When I tell you that I have Venus Virgo, you know at least FOUR things about me (see the bullets!).

        You know that I:

        * love to talk and communicate with all sorts of people.
        * love to serve and I am a devoted lover.
        * make money from communicating.
        * value health related things such as fitness, organic and natural food, etc.
        * talk a lot to my partners and business associates.
        * frequent communication, speaking, etc. is part of my daily habit or work.
        * show my love to others when they are sick and that I am loved, when I am sick. Also that I get love-sick and love can sicken me! But I love to shower my love on to a partner, everyday! Yeah, I’m an affectionate PDA kind of Gal. ;P

        Oh shoot, that’s more than four things (dang houses)!! And it’s still a superficial delineation.

        Now with my Venus being in the 8th, I have a deep Plutonic vibe. I write my own songs and I’ll sing about themes that are often deeply painful or dark in tone (if you discover the underlying occult meaning, that is).

        So, I’m not finished with my bullet points yet — with Venus in the 8th, I also have Venus Conjunct Pluto!!

        Get more out of reading aspects, planet and sign, charts… feel it, know it, own it.

        If there are duplicate or triplicate signatures (ie You have Venus Virgo in the 6th), you’ll know there’s a powerful theme going on — take note.

        Here’s another one…

        Venus Capricorn is like:

        * Venus in the 10th
        * Saturn in  7th or 2nd
        * Venus Conjunct Saturn

        Now, you try it. Take any planet and break it down. If you want more of an explanation, reply. Heh, reply anyway. It’s nice to know people are reading and if you want it to show up on your twitter timeline, just hit the ‘bird’ image before posting!

          Astrology Play: Find Your Niche or Special Offering

          Astrology Play: Read your natal chart as if everything in it is for everyone else. For example, I have Moon in the 8th. I open up the psychic, emotional, and psychological pathways in others to discover.

          Saturn in the 4th gives others a stable and secure home base, grounds others in reality and responsibility in home life. Neptune in the 10th gives people the ability to make me up, to provide magical and spiritual experiences for others. My Jupiter in the 9th Trine North Node in the 2nd provides an expansive and abundant learning experience for others to help them actualize their full potential. With North Node in the 2nd house, I’m also able to help others get paid doing ‘psychic’, ‘spiritual’, ‘dream’, or ‘art’ work since I had the same struggle. Mars Square Midheaven challenges others to get off their behind and fight for their rights and their dreams.

          What have you discovered? What’s your niche? What’s your special offering to the world, for your clients, friends. or lovers?

          I’m an ‘other, public’ person (SouthWest chart) so I think about other’s on a daily basis (even w/ Sun Leo). But I noticed that a lot of people are ‘self, private’ (NorthEast chart) so when they want to get into business or assert themselves in a career, they don’t know how to step forward. Stepping forward is knowing and understanding one’s environment and what it wants. And that means, focusing on ‘other people’ and their needs so that they are interested in buying what you’re selling but you can be you. Be authentic in your sales offering by recognizing what it is in you that others want and need.

            Astrogasm.com: I’ve Started a New Twitter-style Blog

            I originally started VirgoVault to share with and teach others what I was learning along the way. I have Jupiter on my 11th and 12th houses and Jupiter in the 9th house, along with a Mercury (in the 8th) Septile Jupiter so I was compelled to share as well.

            Also the original intention was to create a full website, magazine style, but I found so much joy in writing about astrology that I neglected other metaphysical arts. Also, given the nature of VirgoVault (the nature of Virgo), I tended to write very long and analytical articles.  But it can take many hours and days to write a VV article and lately I haven’t had as much time to do it.  Having said that, my mind was still abuzz with astrological thoughts that I wanted to get down in writing before it evaporated — so I turned to Twitter.  Twitter kept my writing down (in one way) as it is a spontaneous and short thing to do, and gave me an opportunity for much needed brain dumps (Gemini on the 5th/6th).

            However, as much as I love socializing and answering people’s personal questions on Twitter — over time I felt like I wasn’t focused on ‘paid work’ and that my tweeting wasn’t serving, serendipitously, my financial goals either.  I also felt guilty about tweeting first and furious (Aries on the 3rd), without getting back and appreciating followers and friends first (my Libra wish).  Having said that, I still want to share my thoughts and dump my brain so the solution is taking Astrogasm and turning it into a twitter style blog and that’s what I have done.

            Regarding the name Astrogasm, I realized how ‘stale’ and ‘boring’ VirgoVault sounded and while my writing can be that way too — I wanted to reflect the rest of my personality as well. Givien I write from and about the 8th, and get excited about new things like a child would (Leo Sun), Astrogasm seemed like a great name to inject some new life into my love.

            I hope you’ll visit. And I’ll still visit Twitter too. I just need to cage up my Gemini & Sag a bit, as well as feed my Virgo.

              (Astrology: Third & Ninth House, 3rd & 9th House) Vocational & Educational Planning, Teaching & Learning

              Mercury-Jupiter, Gemini-Sagittarius, 3rd-9th axis. Mutable-Cadent. Air-Fire, Masculine

              How Do You Learn?  What Do You Want To Learn? What Type of Teachers Do Like Best? Do you enjoy long-term, higher mind studying or would you rather take a couple of weekend workshops and gain a certificate?  The third and ninth houses tell us about our learning style, what we like to learn, how we learn it, and where we’ll learn it.  It also tells us how and what we teach and communicate what we know to others.

              A recent conversation got me thinking that it’s helpful for people to know this information. Why? Because it will help you connect to a teacher, course of material, etc. that fits in with your learning style, and interests. And it will give you more clues as to what you’ll end up doing for a living.  Of course, a lot of people study at college or university and then don’t actually do that as a career. And one reason for that is that the 2nd, 6th, and 10th point more to how you’ll make your money and where people think you fit.  If people don’t think you’re whatever you studied, they won’t support you publicly. And other houses, like the 4th might suggest that you either like working from home or would suffer working from home so if the course of study you took leads to a ‘home based’ career, you’re not likely to pursue it as a career.  Problems like this have to do with vocational planning and you might not have thought your educational interests thoroughly, as it applies to actually doing it as a career.

              The Ninth House / Jupiter

              The Professor, Higher & Long-term Learning

              About the 9th house in astrology

              The professor is the specialist guru.

              Whose your Guru?  Are YOU you’re own Guru?

              I would say you are and that’s why I’m ‘YOUR Wisdom’ Guide. But what kind of Guru are you?  What knowledge of the higher mind do YOU possess? What can and do you share with others?

              I have Libra on my 9th house cusp. I have Uranus and Jupiter in the 9th (house of higher knowledge, education, and other things). I tend to be a radical thinker (Uranus) and teacher (Jupiter).

              Jupiter in the 9th makes me a natural teacher so even when I’m studying and learning, I’ll end up helping my co-learners.  For example, in college I became a tutor in a Uranian subject!

              I like innovating and I’m into the future. I guess one could say I’m a progressive learner / teacher. I’m not for everyone because I really am different and I encourage difference. I also like one-on-one learning best (Libra) and I like a balanced and harmonious environment that is beautiful to learn within. I’m also not wishy-washy (cardinal sign Libra) in how I teach others. While I believe in ‘many ways’, I’ll unabashedly promote ‘my way’ of learning. 😉

              I’m also heavily interested in relationships, justice, talking, design, business, money management, languages, getting needs met, beauty, and the arts and that’s what I love teaching and learning about in a ‘higher mind’ sort of way. So in astrology, I’m very keen about synastry and composite charts but also love reading natal charts because the you is just as important as the we (and that might be my Uranus in the 9th talking!).

              As I said, I like to teach one-on-one (Libra) but also enjoy the group dynamic (Uranus in the 9th, rules Aquarius, groups) but there’s a stronger preference for one-on-one teaching that’s more focused on what the individual needs and how I can spark innate knowledge — more in a mentoring and personal kind of way. Check out my Fortified Teaching style (Teacherless teaching).

              If you learn from me, know I won’t teach you from ‘the book’.  Rather I’ll teach you from ‘your book’, the one inside. Radical, yes?! 🙂

              If you have Capricorn on, or Saturn (squares Libra) in your 9th you’ll probably have some difficulty adjusting to my way of learning / teaching unless you are leaning on the Aquarian side of Saturn (and even then…).

              Delineations

              I feel the following articles really get Uranus and Jupiter in the 9th as well as Venus (as that’s the planetary ruler of my 9th house).

               

              The Third House / Mercury

              The Teacher, Everyday and Short-term Learning

              About the 3rd house in astrology

              Because I have Libra on the 9th, that means I have Aries on the 3rd.  I’m a bold, courageous, active, responsive, and assertive (even aggressive) communicator.  Mercury will also tell you how you learn best. With Aries (naturally ruled by Mars) on the third (no planets within) I’m an autodidact — self-learner, and I’m quite assertive about it. I also like to call myself a ‘mental athlete’.  I tend to be less interested in learning in groups and prefer individual study.  In fact, in high school I ended up taking part in an Independent Study program.  It’s amazing how things work themselves out, even without knowing astrology.  But with knowing astrology, I think we can gain a fast-track and more pleasant life earlier on.

              I also enjoy short term courses that get through material quickly.  For example, I’ll be taking a short course soon and it’s connected to communication and how to communicate in a more Libran way — it’s about negotiating!! And I prefer learning where I can move, be challenged, compete, touch, and act-out. And I love and learn best, while moving, so when I work out I often like to listen to or watch an educational program as I absorb and process it better.

              My Mercury (naturally ruling the 3rd house) is Septile Jupiter (the 9th house, where I have Jupiter Libra). So I have Mercury Septile Jupiter. My Mercury is in the 8th house so I’ll often communicate about occult subjects and be interested in finding the gems, and little known bits and pieces of insights.

              Delineations

              A couple of links about Mars in the 3rd. I have Aries on the 3rd, so it’s ruled by Mars.

              How about you?

              What’s on your 3rd and 9th house cusp?  What houses are those planets in? What’s in your 3rd and 9th? And how does that colour your learning, teaching, and communication style? What aspects your Mercury and Jupiter?  Do you have a Mercury-Jupiter contact? What does that say about how you share what you know? What type of 9th house studying have you done?  What type of 3rd house studying have you done?

                Mars Retrograde Rx VIRGO January 24th, 2012 until April 14, 2012

                I still want to publish a 2012 blog post but I haven’t had the interest to complete it yet. And I wanted to publish it before publishing anything else but due to how many (in my mind) negative thoughts about Mars Rx (such as inactivity, lethargy, lack of motivation, accidents, standstills, etc..) that’s been said, I felt it important to write my thoughts about the subject.

                Here’s a Yay for Retrogrades, especially this Mars Retrograde

                There’s been a lot of negative thoughts and warnings about this Mars Rx and I have been trying to push them out because many forceful thoughts coming from the same place, can weave into our brains and manifest themselves. Yes, negative things can likely happen (that’s life) BUT I would like to see some balanced thought on the celestial event so I’m going to focus this article on the positive manifestations of this Rx and update this post and/or my Twitter as I experience this celestial event — providing real-life examples of what one individual can experience.

                World & Personal Transits

                There’s a difference between ‘world transits’ — what’s happening in the sky all over the world and ‘personal transits’ — how that stuff actually affects you personally. That’s where an astrologer can help you connect the dots and help you make the best use of this important transit.

                For example, if Virgo 23° is in your 9th house, you may find yourself: thinking about going back to school to study something new, getting legal advice about an accident you had in the past, or re-planning a trip overseas that you never got around doing, etc. Other things to think about are: Where’s your own Mars and what sign is it in?  How does that connect with this Mars? What planets and points, if any, connect to Virgo 23° in your chart + or – 5° (at the start of the transit).  Do note that the degrees change during the transit so there is a range of ° and it doesn’t stay at 23°. In fact, the transit ends with Mars turning direct at Virgo 3°. With Mars Rx going through 20° the majority of us, if not all will feel the effects of this retrograde.

                And while everyone who does experience it, will experience the Mars Rx differently — the same themes (as listed further down in this article) will occur.  Some natives will experience a lot of negative manifestations due to their natural natal (birth) chart and how the transiting planets affect their natal planets.  Yet other people will experience an incredible amount of energy, drive, and a welcomed increase in sexual appetite.  It all depends on what was happening with Mars before the retrograde because the retrograde makes Mars related themes go in the opposite direction to what you normally experience, martian-wise.

                A little About the Planets & Signs in this Rx

                Planets

                Mars (God of War and guardian of agriculture) is a masculine and active planet.  He naturally rules Aries and co-rules Scorpio. Mars was named after the month of March and late March begins sign of Aries and the Persian New Year. The start of Aries is the start of spring in North America. It can also be seen as a good time to give birth to anything as this time sets the tone for new beginnings. Festivals were also held in March and October (late October begins Scorpio) to honor Mars.

                Mars (rules Aries) was the son of Juno alone (co-rules Libra and is the opposite of Aries). Jupiter (her husband and ruler of Sagittarius) gave birth to Minerva (mentioned by Hickey as the non-destructive side of the planet Pluto who is connected to the sign Scorpio.

                Associated Mars animals: Woodpecker and the Wolf.

                From Wikipedia

                Mars

                Mars outside the Villa Adriana

                Mars (Mars symbol.svg) is the ruling planet of Aries and is exalted in Capricorn. Mars is the Roman god of war and bloodshed, whose symbol is a spear and shield. Both the soil of Mars and the hemoglobin of human blood are rich in iron, and because of this they share its distinct deep red color.[17] Mars orbits the Sun in 687 days, spending about 57.25 days in each sign of the zodiac. It is also the first planet that orbits outside of Earth’s orbit, making it the first planet that does not set along with the Sun.

                Astrologically, Mars is associated with confidence and self assertion, aggression, sexuality, energy, strength, ambition, and impulsiveness. Mars governs sports, competitions and physical activities in general. The 1st-century poet Manilius, described the planet as ardent, and as the lesser malefic. In medicine, Mars presides over the genitals, the muscular system, the gonads, and adrenal glands. It was traditionally held to be hot and excessively dry, and ruled the choleric humor. It was associated with fever, accidents, trauma, pain, and surgery. In modern astrology, Mars is said to rule the first and eighth houses; traditionally, however, Mars ruled the third and tenth houses. While Venus tends to the overall relationship atmosphere, Mars is the passionate impulse and action, the masculine aspect, discipline, will-power, and stamina.

                The planet Mars

                Before the discovery of Pluto, it was universally considered the ruler of Scorpio. Most modern astrologers consider Pluto the ruler of Scorpio, but many regard Mars as a co-ruler, while all traditional astrologers still regard Mars as the only ruler of Scorpio.

                Mars is associated with Tuesday, and in Romance languages the word for Tuesday often resembles Mars (in Romanian, marţi , in Spanish, martes, in French, mardi and in Italian “martedì”). Dante Alighieri associated Mars with the liberal art of arithmetic. In Chinese astrology, Mars is ruled by the element fire, which is passionate, energetic, and adventurous. In Indian astrology, Mars is called Mangala and represents energy, confidence, and ego.

                Signs

                Virgo is ruled by Mercury and Vesta. When I think of Mars Rx Virgo, I think of Mars being connected to Mercury and Vesta and the types of plans the planets have for us. Plans around planning, duty, ritual, health, wellness, analysis, thought, sacred sex, communication, analysis, etc. Interestingly the last planetary Rx was in Mercury back in November /December of 2011.

                With the sign Scorpio (co-ruled by Mars), the stingy tail is sticking out.  The tail on the symbol of Scorpio not only represents the Scorpion but also sexuality, and the arrow that’s part of the symbol for Mars.  With Virgo, the tail is tucked inside the ‘m’. Virgo (amongst other things) tends to be sexually chaste, modest, shy, inhibited, submissive, and virginal (until a pure and spiritual being opens her up and gets her to ‘forget’). The feminine sign of Virgo can have a naughty side and Mars is very good at bringing that out of her as he doesn’t take no for an answer — he keeps hitting on her until she succumbs to his efforts.

                Dates

                Mars entered Virgo and became retrograde on January 24th at 23° and turns direct on April 14, 2012 at 3° Virgo.

                Sensitive people will feel the Rx during the shadow period which happens before and after a retrograde. So if you find yourself suddenly and naturally thinking about or doing something related to an Rx theme before it actually goes Rx or after it goes direct, you’re probably quite sensitive.

                Note: Recently I’m learning about the RX shadow beginning and ending as it relates to the degrees that the RX begins and when it turns direct. This time period, as can be seen by what Cafestrology says can be lengthy.  This is not my strong point in astrology (as it relates to astronomy, I think!!) and so I’ll do some investigating about this in the coming weeks.  I’m thinking it has to do with how ‘fast’ a planet moves.  I’ve only written about Mercury Rx before which usually is a couple of weeks before the Rx and after turning direct sooo… that might be it. Also, there are some who say the RX started on the 23rd and it may have for their timezone; however, it was listed as January 24th UTC time in the Swiss ephemeris.

                What’s an Rx Good for and What is it?

                An Rx is great for going back and seeing what plans that planet wanted you to carry-out but that you didn’t quite complete / figure out in the past.

                When it’s in retrograde (appearing to move backwards from its normal forward direction in the cosmos), it goes over all these things.

                The prefix re is Latin and it relates to repetition. It means going over things again or again and again. It also means going back or a backwards motion and this is related to withdrawal.

                Any word that starts or contains the re such as renew, restart, revert, rejuvenate, review, retrace, reorganize, refurbish indicates the type of action you can experience during a retrograde. And as much as Mars Rx is about reflection and taking time-out, it’s about doing things and taking action in regards to something from the past, even if it’s done internally. Yes, themes can manifest themselves internally — like an introvert.

                While the abbreviation Rx means retrograde, it reminds me of the word prescription (which also has re in it). A prescription is meant to fix a problem — something that is not functioning at its best. And during a Mars Rx, things that are not working are brought to our attention so we can fix them before an even more serious problem occurs.

                So what does it all mean and how does it affect you?

                When Mars or any planetary Rx is talked about, it’s often referring to what is going on in the cosmos; however, it’s important to see how what’s going on in the sky affects you personally and for that — we take a look at your natal chart.

                By checking your personal and world transits and seeing what sign and house Mars is in and what other planets, asteroids, stars, and points it may contact — we’ll be able to gain a better idea as to how, why, and what will manifest during this period. Do know that I offer “learn and know” astrology lessons and consultations by phone.  I reside in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

                Themes of this Mars Rx

                READY, SET, GO (or no-go) — ACTION (or non-action)!

                Reviewing, revisiting, renewing, restarting, reverting, rejuvenating, reviewing, retracing, reorganizing, refurbishing, reflecting, etc.

                • Health & Wellness
                • Exercise & Nutrition
                • Sexual health
                • Surgery & accidents
                • Burns, cuts, inflammation
                • The body, specifically the head
                • Action & activity
                • Mental & physical growth
                • War, fighting, arguments for peace
                • Power & stamina, competition
                • The natural world, wild animals
                • Self-reliance, management, direction

                Examples of Potentially beneficial things to do during a Mars Rx

                So for this Rx, if you haven’t had a successful health routine (exercise, eating, etc) now is the time to review, revise, and DO. Also, sex is on the table or bed (wherever you like it… haha) so have you been getting too much or too little sex? How’s your sex life been? This is actually a good time to see a sex therapist, get some sexual education, analyze, and fine-tune your love-making abilities. Muah! Go get ’em tigers and tigresses.

                Finally, anger issues — resentments, upsets — get over them. Say goodbye to that which inflames, incites, and ignites in unhealthy ways. Mars also rules surgery. So this might be a good time to go back and redo a surgery that didn’t repair an injury from the past.  Do know that some astrologers say to stay away from surgery altogether during a Mars Rx.

                It may also be a good time to aggressively heal a dis-ease, fungal infections, metals, blood disorders, etc. (Use health information at your own risk!! I highly suggest not replacing licensed medical advice with alternative therapies and occult knowledge).

                And if you experience constipation or intestinal problems (Virgo rules that) ensure you work-out and get your innards moving (Mars!!). Don’t let the Rx back-up your system. Focus on active health & wellness — things you haven’t done before or didn’t do successfully before.

                Holding back the juice is also indicated during this transit.  So you may want to use protection, for various reasons, when having sex during this Mars Rx.  Or there could be other reasons for the retraction of martian fluid (including sweat! ;). This is where Mars Rx can get a little negative — it all depends on how you slant things, what you want, and how it’s viewed. Perhaps this is a time where you want to conserve your energy (holding back the juice) for a specific event where you’re the athlete, such as being a marathon runner or hockey player and need to amass Martian reserves for the big day. Or it could mean abstaining from sex so that you have more juice for to impregnate. Or it could mean reducing a large amount of blah sex in favour for less WOW sex.  There are so many ways to read this transit and a professional astrologer (like myself) can help you make sense of how this transit applies to you personally.

                So please, please, please… don’t think this Mars Rx is all bad stuff. In fact, you might not perceive ANY bad thing happening. Time will tell. Know the future possibilities, but live in the reality of the present. Work with and not against the planets in the style (sign) they want it done.

                Current Mars World Transits

                I use a 10° orb with most aspects

                • Mars Rx Trine Mercury
                • Mars Rx Semi-sextile Saturn
                • Mars Rx Inconjunct Neptune
                • Mars Rx Square North Node

                Current Pluto World Transits

                • Pluto Sextile Venus
                • Later in the Rx Pluto with Square, Trine, Quincunx Venus

                Looking at the world transits, one stands out right away — Mars Rx Trine Mercury in Capricorn . To me, that means this is a very good time to go over serious conversations about sex, health, and education that will make you money in the end or help you reach long-overdue goals. And Pluto Sextile Venus also stands out.  It says to me that powerful love is at play during at least part of this Mars Rx.

                This world transit is great for thinking about how we compete with other businesses or others in the workplace.  Here, the suggestion is that talking it out rather than getting physical will work. Because we are at the tail-end of Saturn in Libra 29° I feel this Mars Rx has a lot to do with relationships — relationships with yourself AND others. And that’s the other thing, as an astrologer we look at the whole chart — not just parts.  Mars Rx Virgo is a part.

                Transit Delineation for Mars Rx Virgo

                Mars in Virgo

                Examples…

                • Plans and organizes activities
                • Has specific sexual tastes and potentially ‘fetishes’
                • A methodical and analytical lover — will learn what turns you on
                • Likes to have clean sex or wash up after sex
                • Thinks about how they will compete but slow to act
                • Interested in health regimes and actively seeks to improve
                • May enjoy working with or using hands.
                • Most likely enjoys eating and cooking
                • A hard-worker, productive, and precise
                • Will get technical and use cool actions in an argument (a bit stealthy?! the spy)
                • Sherlock Holmes (which I discovered after writing what I did below… hehe) or Spock character

                With Mars Rx Virgo, give the above statements a ‘re’ twist.  For example, it’s a good time to re-plan outdated activities, re-evaluate your sexual health, renovate your work space, re-consider quitting your job for one that will appreciate your efforts more, or close an old argument that has been lingering in the back-ground, etc. Heck, it could even mean check-mate! Recently, I watched the Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows movie (which includes a long bit on a fortune teller and tarot card reading) and Mars Virgo makes for a good games-man — the type that’s quite cerebral and cunning!

                haha… just checked Robert Downey’s natal chart and guess what? he has Mars in Virgo!! 😉 If this actor sexually appeals to you, you’ll get a sense of what a Mars Virgo male is like. By the way, Robert has a stellium in Virgo (Mars, Uranus, and Pluto) in the 2nd house (sensuality, self-esteem, self-finances, beauty, etc.)

                At any rate, Check your personal transits or have me check them for you!!

                Personal Experiences (so far) with this Mars Rx

                At the start of the Rx (first week)

                • On day one I had to re-write my Wii profile and wipe my fitness results to-date.  No biggie.
                • Okay, I’m going to say it — sex is good! That could be sex with myself or sex with another (maybe both 😉 but I’m not kissing and telling.  Well, I guess I’m kissing or is that telling? — I’m not sure. 😛 — My Virgo Venus is not liking me right now! “Sshhh. privacy” she says!!
                • I have a ton of physical energy and I’m doing more than I usually do. I have drive and ambition.
                • I have increased responsibility in the work I do. It’s affirming but mentally challenging.
                • I have lost 12 pounds since starting a new exercise & food regime since December 25th. As the days got closer to the Rx, I was even more determined to exercise and eat right! And I noticed I don’t have the same kind of appetite that I did before.  That could have to do with the exercise but I’m usually still interested in eating.  Don’t worry folks, I’m still eating — not starving myself but the appetite is in the normal or slightly less than normal but healthy range!
                • I lost a whole bunch of my ‘social numbers’ on my blog posts so it looks like ‘less’ people actually liked or shared an article. (now fixed and back to normal numbers!!)
                • I’m so busy — so much to do, and time is flying! Time is flying by at a much faster rate than ever before.  What gives?
                • Keep thinking about getting a small pet… not sure if I want a cat or a dog. Either would be fine but dogs require more care. Thought about this a lot but still not taking any action… probably next year, after do a lot of traveling.
                • I have had outbursts of anger but then analyzed for what they were: Delayed knowledge.  What I mean by that is that something happened in the past that I choose to ignore and then when I re-discovered it (archeology dig?!), I blew up in disbelief that I had fooled myself into not connecting to what was really going on.
                • I keep coming back to this blog post and correcting small mistakes. Tweaking, and tweaking…

                Update: February 21, 2012

                • For days have had intense tiredness but then suddenly getting break-through’s where I get stuff done that I haven’t done in years.  A lot of organizing and cleaning going on. 🙂

                My Personal Transits

                At the start of this Rx

                • Mars Rx Conjunct Venus
                • Mars Rx Trine Saturn
                • Mars Rx Sextile Neptune
                • Mars Rx Conjunct Pluto
                • Mars Rx Semi-square Midheaven
                • Pluto Trine Mercury

                If you know how to read aspects, then you’ll probably gain a good understanding why my personal experiences with this Rx (so far) are not picked up by me as negative.  For me, they are incredibly positive and in some ways — unusual. 😀 If you don’t know how to read astrology charts and you want to know how to make the best of this celestial event, please request an appointment.

                Cafestrology has put together a nice horoscope with the starting point being your ascendant. I’m a Capricorn rising but I have an intercepted Aquarius so I generally consider myself a Capricorn AND an Aquarius rising with Capricorn being more powerful.

                Capricorn and Capricorn Ascendant:All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of home, family, security, and domestic activities because Mars rules these areas in your solar chart. This can play out in a variety of ways. For example, household projects may slow down or stall. You might be feeling more defensive during this period, or your might get worked up about old angers or regarding emotional issues from the past that are resurfacing now. It’s a good time for examining how you have been expressing anger or asserting yourself with your family. Occurring in your solar ninth house this time, enthusiasm for higher education, travel, your personal philosophy, or adventure in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Some projects may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in adventurous ways. Your outlook on life in terms of the “bigger picture” could be more cautious, and you might find that you temporarily have less faith, or you are questioning the faith that has carried you to date. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. Your outlook and lust for life, for the time being, might not be as natural or spontaneous as it has been.

                Aquarius and Aquarius Ascendant: All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of communication, siblings, neighbors, acquaintances, and transportation. Communication or transportation might take a hit somehow, making it harder to get from point A to point B, for example, or involving missed meetings, delays and red tape, challenges with studies, or mechanical breakdowns. Occurring in your solar eighth house this time, enthusiasm for intimate and sharing matters in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. A lover or yourself may especially intense or obsessive. Ambiguity with finances, particularly debts and shared money or resources, could dominate now. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended. You could be exploring anger and assertion over deeply buried matters, and learning to better manage your life on an emotional level.

                Visit Cafestrology to get your horoscope! They also have great ‘reports’ you can purchase that I don’t currently offer.

                What’s up Next in Rx Land?

                Reflections on beauty and the beast.

                Shortly following this Mars Rx, Venus decides to take a look back at the mirror to make sure she’s pretty for the demands of Mars.

                Venus Rx / Retrograde May 5, 2012 enters 23 ° Gemini until June 26, 2012 7° Gemini

                We also have Saturn Rx on February 7th.

                  Astrology: How To Find Your Correct Time of Birth

                  Don’t know your correct time of birth, without a doubt?

                  In Canada, contact the hospital’s health records department where you were born.

                  In US, order your “record of birth” long form (not all cities have it recorded on there) from the state department of vital statistics or you may want to use VitalChek. American Astrologer, Steven Forrest has a great article on how to order this. Fees currently range from $10 – $30.

                  Overseas? Check with the hospital you were born at and/or the attending physician or you can try VitalChek International.

                  My time of birth was a bit off from the baby record my Mom filled out (it was in a scrap book she made up for me). As an astrologer it made the world of difference to know my exact time of birth. And it will make a world of difference for you if you are interested in completely fulfilling your life, with clarity.

                  For example, meaningful fixed stars and asteroids use a much tighter orb so it’s very important to have your exact time of birth when using these.

                  In Toronto, it can currently cost between $30-$60 to get your time of birth from the hospital. Make sure they know you only want the time of birth or they will charge you a lot more. If you are not sure about which hospital you were born at, order the long form birth certificate. In the province of Ontario, it can be ordered online. Your time of birth will not show on the long form birth certificate like it often does in the United States.

                  If you have any questions or comments about getting your time of birth, comment here.

                  Without an accurate time of birth time (or any time of birth), a chart can still be read — just not with complete accuracy and with less detail.

                  It’s also important to know exactly where you were born, location wise. Some cities are now amalgamated. Some cities changed names, etc. For example, the exact location where I was born is no longer seen on a map but it makes a difference in the chart. To be even more accurate (if doing your own chart) you’ll want to know the exact spot where you were born, if you can (latitude and longitude).

                  A birth chart rectification can also been done by astrologers. I’m generally within an hour of your time of birth, and I do not specialize in birth chart rectification services.

                    Why I don’t want to be a Therapist or Psychologist…

                    (Originally published on Friday September 16 ,2011 ) I have been told I’m a really good natural psychologist or therapist. And having a Virgo stellium in the 8th with Mercury & Pluto (not conjunct) with harmonious yet powerful aspects flowing through that house, it’s not really a wonder why I’m told that…

                    I genuinely care about what makes people tick and how to help them move past their blocks and other people’s blocks.

                    But being there, helping people, means I’m stuck in the past — the other’s past and my past. And my focus the whole time is to take the other to their own positive future. But what about me? Am I achieving my future? I think not.

                    We are who we spend our time with.

                    I love helping people but having an early degree Virgo SN Conjunct Mercury in the 8th house is doing psychoanalysis and dealing with people’s deep and dark stuff. And while I can do it well, it’s my past. I’m also not into studying something in a way that doesn’t give me personal freedom of mental expression. In other words, to be a psychologist, I need to do years of formalized education in a restrictive environment and with Jupiter & Uranus Libra in the 9th I don’t think that’s my destiny.

                    My future is Pisces NN 2nd house conjunct (out of sign) an Aquarius Part of Fortune in the 1st (some house systems, it’s on the 2nd), Trine MC Acrux / Alphecca (I’m a wide orb Gal), the ruler of the 2nd is in the 10th (or 9th, depending on house system), along with my late degree Virgo planets in the 8th (close to or cusping on Libra… ie Venus Virgo is 28° with ruler of the 4th and 9th being in the 8th.

                    Helping people (in the way I have done) keeps me in my past. It took a TarotSeek session and a conversation with a beloved Pisces to hit the final nail on the head. And that’s an incredible revelation because I had trouble with understanding how I could do Pisces NN while having Virgo SN and a packed house of Virgo. And while I love helping people and can do it, it wasn’t serving me and I want to be a servant in another way — a way that serves the goals of other AND myself.

                    But I asked: How can I do my Pisces NN while moving away from (yet merging) the Virgo SN with so much Virgo?! The answer is plainly in not judging others or their situation and doing Piscean pursuits that are largely insular yet eventually healing and expanding out to others.

                    Anyway, back to this topic…

                    Once I make-over someone, they are done — they leave. I don’t get invited to the photo-shoot or the after-party, and rarely do I get a photo of that shoot mailed to me down the road. It’s not fun and I ♡ fun! Once I help someone shine brightly, they leave and I don’t get to enjoy the fruits of our labour. And the people I help, don’t really come back for me. They are not really thinking of getting me ahead and that’s not their fault or their responsibility.

                    It’s time that I do my Pisces NN and start working with art and music in a spiritual way — in a way that inspires and teaches others.

                    Looking back, it’s (art has) always been there.
                    Abella Arthur ~ Arthor ~ Author ~ ARThur ~ ART-her

                    I was part of the choir in school and church. I still sing today (in my shower, while washing dishes, etc!) and have dreams of being a one-hit wonder — time limited fame & fortune! I have a ton of musical instruments but I haven’t picked up my guitar in a long while and I actually fancy the harmonica and drums. I was part of a special enrichment class in grade school where we made a commercial about soda-pop and I was the lead actress doing Michael Jackson’s MoonWalk (totally dating myself here!). I always took art class in school and drew everything that would let me. Teachers liked what I did but they never pushed me into a professional pursuit.

                    In one of my high schools, I was in a special class where most of the students were actors, athletes, or artists. They asked: What do you do? I didn’t. I was just a student who was bright but accelerated so regular school was too boring and didn’t work. I needed independent and flexible study (Aries on 3rd house cusp! Chiron Aries). That’s why I was there. But I did spend some time thinking about going to OCAD and I hung around art students and professional artists.

                    In my late teens I worked at a local movie theatre and once sang Blue Moon at the front of the stage with an usher who was trying to land an acting gig / career. And there was Ed, the dancer and wow, do I love dance. Which brings me to being a gymnast with a particular interest in the mat and beam. Then as an adult, I took pottery and other hobby art workshops. Color and color psychology are big interests too. I am amazed at how color transforms an environment or person. I like to play with origami, draw, and create to help me relax and be. And my Mom is a Pisces and an artist plus my ancestors were musicians and artistic. To boot, as a 30/3 life path I like to express and I took drama every year too. I can be a bit of an improvisational loon.

                    There are so many more artistic and dramatic memories but it would probably fill pages and I hope not to bore anyone with details. I also didn’t intend for such a self-exploration but with Mercury Septile Jupiter, I have a habit of writing or talking up a storm! Hope no one thinks it’s self-absorbed and I do hope this helps others take the time out to find or accept their heart’s desire.

                    But back onto topic again…

                    I greatly admire/d artists and I was/am surrounded by artists but I never stepped up to be an artist and while some artists helped me take a step, looking back… it looks to me that others almost hid their artistry from me preferring to talk about what I knew and did rather than what they knew and did so I didn’t get to learn a lot.

                    This is why even though I have connected with tons of people in my lifetime, I’ll never forget those that helped me positively progress because they have been few and far between. Like an ex-boyfriend (also a three life path) who had cut a super CD of his own. He let me stay in his place and sing to my heart’s content on his recording equipment and finally I was able to sing in front of him — first time I did that as an adult. And I even contemplated getting singing lessons back then but I didn’t. In fact, ever so often I reach out to get lessons but something holds me back (now, I’m just studying how to sing through a CD program, as I clean up my place). Anyway, he inspired me to write some songs and paint too. He, a Taurus, went on to get a degree in fine art. He opened me up to express myself and to let go of rigidity without actually telling me what to do. And one Christmas he got me a color wheel. That was one of the best gifts I ever got. He also got me a blue cup with a sunflower on it (I love flowers, especially sunflowers — LEO!!) that I used for my paint brushes and he also gave me a painting he did for me.

                    Natally, I have a packed Venus (as well as Mercury, Moon, a lot of Septiles, Noviles, and Deciles — but this post is about the right side of my brain (Pisces) as it pertains to art and why I’m turning away from my left (Virgo), for now, to explore it). Having said that, Virgo still plays a part.  For example, Virgo Venus illustrates my love of ‘smart design or smart art’. 😀

                    Venus Contacts

                    The only aspect I have missing in my natal chart is Venus-Mercury. In 2014, I’ll have a progressed Venus Sextile Mercury and at that time, Venus will contact everything except for Saturn, Neptune, North Node, and MC. The progressed Venus will also and currently does Sextile my natal Mercury.

                    Neptune Contacts

                    Neptune is a higher vibration of Venus.
                    I have Neptune Scorpio in the 10th house.
                    I am a muse but I like having muses too.


                    (Astrology notes… things I just noticed or thought of after writing this whole she-bang up!)

                    • I wrote this on Friday — Venus day! hehe) (Originally published on Friday September 16 ,2011)
                    • The world transit for Chiron has retrograded back to 2° 30 Pisces TODAY and that has re-activated my North Node Pisces 2° 49 as a powerful conjunction. This also means that my SN is opposite Tr. Chiron reminding me that the past hurts my future.
                    • The last time Chiron came into 2° 30 Pisces was on March 11th, 2011 and the last time it will jump back in a direct motion, in my lifetime, will be on January 18, 2012 at 2° 47; however, the first week of January will probably bring a huge jump in consciousness as to what and how I’m to carry out my life’s mission. (Update: On Jan 18, I found myself being in a situation that required me to be independent, self-sufficient, and there was a lot of emotionality but at the same time I had a fierce “I can do this” strength to accept what has been given to me and to not go down ‘that road’ again.  I’m naturally a ‘partner’ but I have learned that I need to come first in all cases because I’ll naturally put others first and they are unlikely to reciprocate.  First week of January was an incredibly emotional time for me where I had to ‘face the music’ and from Jan 18 onwards, I have experienced incredible emotional pain but pain (I believe) that ultimately has a healing outcome.)
                    • My midheaven trines my North Node and Tr. Chiron trines my Na. MC

                    Art has been at my fingertips this whole time. I have done it, I have hung around people who did it, and yet why was I being so nebulous about the whole thing when it came to me doing it?

                    With all this art around me, why has it taken me so long to connect the dots? I have my thoughts but it mostly comes from non-support. Insular art is not something that others can enjoy, at least not right away. And I have found that the majority of people are selfish. If it doesn’t serve them at that moment, then why care? If you are reading this and you are not selfish, I wouldn’t be so quick to pat yourself on the back nor would I do so if you consider yourself selfish. Because doing what doesn’t come naturally helps find a balance and that is often something to be more proud (a Leo word) of.

                    For myself (with my Sun in the 7th house naturally ruled by Venus & Juno), I’m learning to be selfish and to take care of me. I don’t have any more time to lose. It’s time for my Sun Leo to flower…

                    (Update: February 2.  I have joined the AGO and I plan to join a new cultural institution (such as the ROM, Bata Museum, etc. at least once a month.  I also picked up a Vocal Studio Mic and softward to start recording and playing around with my singing though I have been still too busy to upload anything to the Internet. ).

                    p.s. I’m not the ‘throw the baby out with the bath water kind of Gal”…  My Venus Trine Saturn likes to expand upon, build upon.  I’m not giving up on the psychic arts, I’m adding to it.  That’s my Jupiter Sextile Ascendant. 😀

                      The Truth About Planet Mercury Rx (Retrograde) in Sagittarius: November to December 2011

                      Mercury (messenger of the gods and god of trade) is the planet of communication, thoughts, left brain function, quick-wit, words, business transactions, lower learning, interesting facts and figures, data, delivery, short distance travel (travel over land), messages, and speed. It rules the sign Gemini and co-rules the sign Virgo.

                      Mercury’s name “is related to the Latin word merx (“merchandise”; compare merchant, commerce, etc.), mercari (to trade), and merces (wages).”[2]

                      When it’s in retrograde (appearing to move backwards from its normal forward direction in the cosmos), it goes over all these things.

                      The prefix re is Latin and it relates to repetition.  It means going over things again or again and again. It also means going back or a backwards motion and this is related to withdrawal.

                      Any word that starts or contains the re such as renew, restart, revert, rejuvenate, review, retrace, reorganize, refurbish indicates the type of action you can experience during a retrograde. And as much as Mercury Rx is about reflection and taking time-out, it’s about doing things and taking action in regards to something from the past, even if it’s done internally.

                      Breakout Thought: And this brings me to a thought about what type of aspect Mercury most emulates.  Given there’s an internal or past element to it, I’m inclined to say that a Moon and/or Neptune vibe will be felt — specifically Moon-Mercury and Mercury-Neptune.  What do you think? This may be why some astrologers say an Rx can cause confusion, mixed up vibes, emotional contact, etc.

                      While the abbreviation Rx means retrograde, it reminds me of the word prescription (which also has re in it).  A prescription is meant to fix a problem — something that is not functioning at its best.  And during a Mercury Rx things that are broken are brought to our attention so we can fix them before an even more serious problem occurs.

                      So what does it all mean and how does it affect you?

                      When Mercury Rx is talked about, it’s often referring to what is going on in the cosmos; however, it’s important to see how what’s going on in the sky affects you personally and for that — we take a look at your natal chart.

                      By checking your personal and world transits and seeing what sign and house Mercury is in and what other planets, asteroids, stars, and points it may  contact — we’ll be able to gain a better idea as to how, why, and what will manifest during this period.

                      Some Beneficial Things to do During a Mercury Rx

                      Here are some ideas:

                      • Revisit unresolved thoughts, communication problems, and conversations.
                      • Refrain from communicating if discussing new topics.
                      • Expect delays in receiving messages or deliveries.
                      • Reorganize files, accounts, or work with old papers.
                      • Replay conversations.
                      • Retake a knowledge test.
                      • Renew business contacts.
                      • Read the fine print.

                      One big thing you may find during an Rx, depending on your temperament (aspects and such) is that you don’t feel like extroverting your thoughts or talking. If you are in business like I am, that will affect what you earn since business transactions are not moving forward due to communication hiccups from lack of communication.

                      Before I wrote this article, I recognized that business income slowed for me during an Rx but I didn’t really know why.  Above, I write: Renew business contacts.  I certainly wasn’t doing that during previous Rx’s but since my aspects are doing well this go around (and the Rx is in a fire sign — I’m a Leo) I don’t find that to be a problem now.

                      What I’m saying here is this:  If you find your self-employment income dwindling, force yourself to complete business transactions and in the future get yourself ready for Rx energy — and schedule Rx time to do other business activities that allow you to hole up for awhile and plump up your cash flow pre-Rx.

                      Keep in mind the Shadow Phases which last for about a couple of weeks before and after — effectively giving you a warning and last minute opportunities.

                      Transit Delineation for Mercury Rx in Sagittarius

                      Sagittarius is connected to the half man / half animal energy.  It is the sign of the meta-physician, the warrior healer, the medicine man / woman. Sagittarius is about freedom to go and roam wherever it wants — far and wide.  Sagittarius is the philosopher, theologian, seeker / speaker of The Truth, and champion for justice. Sagittarius is ruled by the lucky and expansive, planet Jupiter.

                      Mercury in Sagittarius (Detriment)

                      • Likes to philosophize and be open ended in thought
                      • Very expansive in terms of what one thinks
                      • Enjoys talking about traveling, spirituality, and new ideas
                      • Takes the side of unpopular opinion; a bit of a Devil’s Advocate or championing for the underdog sometimes
                      • Things can be exaggerated, long-winded.  Likes to tell stories.
                      • May not have a fixed opinion and can be swayed by a stronger one than their own
                      • Rambles on about nothing and everything, chatty
                      • Quick to make a decision about something
                      • Likes to share what has learned along the way
                      • Talks in an optimistic and joyful way

                      Now spin all that in an Rx, re way. For example, it’s a good time to make plans to revisit family and friends in a place you have traveled to before.  And if anything goes wrong, it will work itself out or be in your favour — in the end.  It’s a Jupiter ruled Rx afterall. 😀

                      Looking at the world transits, one stands out right away — Mercury Rx Conjunct North Node.  To me, that means this is a  very good time to rethink your destiny.  What do you want out of life?  What’s holding you back?  What’s next on your journey? Who are you to become? What will make you feel self-actualized? And since this is a world transit, this is a world thought.  Most everyone will be thinking about this as it relates to the future of the world.  Because of that, the personal impact may not be as great; however, world thought can trickle down to personal thought.  At any rate, Check your personal transits or have me check them for you!!

                      Personal Notes

                      Ever since paying close attention to the stars, Mercury Rx has been a time where there was a complete stop or stall to writing.  What’s happening now for me is that the truth is more clear and I’m able to communicate that truth in an unwavering way. The unfortunate part is that it’s being done with great strength, so anyone who can’t stand the heat will surely want to avert their eyes from my writing!

                      And it’s not until now that I felt like writing about Mercury Rx.  I have went through many of them and it’s a popular subject but a) I don’t often like writing about a topic unless I’m in the thick of experiencing it b) I’m not currently much into what’s popular, finding what’s not — more interesting, and c) up until now, I have felt stumped and stalled to write anything about it while it was actually happening.

                      Update: This Mercury Rx is over and what I did was re-evaluate how I shared knowledge and changed who and where I shared it.  Sharing knowledge is something I will do, no matter what, but how and where and why I do it was up for re-evaluation.  At times it was painful to realize I couldn’t share freely in the way I wanted but the change is for my highest good and for the highest good of those I serve.

                      My Personal Transits

                      This time around tr. Mars is Conjunct Mercury with an exact 0° orb of influence along with tr. Mercury Rx Trine Mars are in the 8th house. And tr. Mercury Quintile Uranus is exact with a 0°orb (cusps on the 8/9th houses). My mind is on fire.  To add to that, I have the Sun, Mercury, and North Node transiting my 11th house which is ruled by Jupiter (sign on the cusp is Sagittarius) yet I have no planets in this house. Also notable is tr. Sun Conjunct Urania (11th house, Sag).

                      I want to talk.  I want to talk loud and often and I’ll take no prisoners. ;P

                        Part One: An Introduction to the 9th House, Ninth House Astrology Series

                        How fitting that I should complete the Introduction to the houses on Thor’s Day! My first article in the series was on the 8th house. I have come a long way! Read about ALL the houses.  Any article with the beginning of Part One: An Introduction is likely to be of similar style article as this one.

                        The Ninth House is the house of: Languages, Keynote Speakers, Toastmaster’s, Anthropology, Journalism, Publishing, Law, Justice, Foreign, Foreign Travel, Culture, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Theology, Astrotheology, In-laws, Distant relatives and foreigners, Diplomats, Long Distance Travel, Long Duration Education, The Higher Mind, Higher Truths, Remote Viewing, Astral Travel, Logos, The Word of God, Satsangs, Gurus


                        The 9th house is where we find our Brilliant Mind — our genius! 

                        And it’s where we expand our mind too — perhaps even through drugs! Drugs can be in the form of sex, herbs, chocolate, exercise — anything that gives us that high So we can use drugs and mind altering chemicals (like endorphins released through exercise or sex) to reach the higher mind.  Another example, is going for a nice long walk to clear our mind and get answers.

                        The 9th house represents both the student and the teacher and it’s where we learn but then take it a step further and begin disseminating and teaching what we learn, along with the 11th house. We feel confident and optimistic about our mental mind! Being connected with the 5th and 11th houses, the 9th has a political tone to it as well — as it relates to justice and the law being upheld — especially around human and legal rights.  This is one reason why Sagittarius gets along with Aquarius and Libra really well.  The 9th house is about being socially fair, and unfettered by dogma though the native may have their own dogma that they follow religiously.  In the 9th house, we witness long distance travel and communication around different philosophies, culture, and knowledge.  We may travel to another state, province, or country to gain education in a land foreign to us so we may gain more than just the knowledge given to us at that school. We want to learn how the others live and whether we want to live that way too.  We want to enrich our lives with all that there is to enjoy, see, and do. Education may be received at a distance, through on-line learning.  The 9th house is where we take all that we learn, write, communicate, and publish it.  Publishing is not just in the form of books — it can be blogs, journals, and perhaps even keynote speaking, teaching as a professor.  In the area of religion and spirituality, there’s not a lot of boundary.  As a 9th house native matures, they may do away with dogmatic religions and become agnostic or atheist.  On the other side, they may get deeper into their spirituality at a grass roots level by becoming a missionary in a far-away land or creating their own religion / spirituality.

                        Although the 9th house is co-ruled by Neptune, I was having some trouble with some astrologers attributing the 9th to being the house of psychic and occult phenomena.  I attribute those experiences to the water houses:  4th (Cancer) past lives / psychic heritage, 8th (Scorpio) occult / medium, and 12th (Pisces) angels / spirit guides / psychic dreams, cognition; however, I do believe in the Law of Proximity.  Because of that, there’s overflow from one house to another.  What I do see is that the 9th house (for example) takes or makes the experiences of the 8th and teaches, writes about, communicates, philosophizes, tests, and explores it in an enlightened and spirited way.

                        Stuff about the 9th House.

                        • Ruled by Jupiter (Sagittarius, co-ruling Pisces).
                        • House Axis: 9 /3
                        • Aspect / Planet – Sign: (Sagittarius) Jupiter Opposition Mercury (Gemini) The JMAD Swap: Jupiter Gemini / Mercury Sagittarius. Sagittarius is in Sextile with Libra (the 7th house) and Aquarius (11th house) therefore, these houses stimulate and piggy-back off of each other. It’s in trine with Leo (5th house) and Aries (1st house).
                        • Everyone has 9th house themes. This is the house of The Higher Mind or when house ownership is taken, it can be viewed as The Enlightened or Ascended Mind.
                        • Third House: Foundational Study. 9th House: Advanced Study.
                        • House Themes: Higher Knowledge, Theology & Spirituality, Philosophy, Reading & Publishing, Law & Justice, Long Distance Travel, Long Duration Study & Vocational Opportunities, Culture, Foreign People, Language

                        9th House Themes

                        • House of Higher Knowledge: How you learn. How you teach what you know. Do you naturally enjoy teaching to groups or one-on-one? Inspired thought. Divine thought. This leads to psychic connections that we act out, discuss, and explore  through the higher mind. It’s here where knowledge can be received seemingly coming from nowhere. Astral travel. University and post secondary education. Free-masonry. Secret societies that are not too secret or secret anymore such as Brotherhood of the Light — so occult societies, groups, organizations in which one can leave at any time — not a cult but on the fringe.
                        • House of Theology & Spirituality: In the 8th house, we experience the occult in a feelings and intangible way.  In the 9th, we put words to and expand on those feelings and sixth sense. The types of spirituality that interests you. Astrothelogy. Mytheology. Venus rules my 9th house with Jupiter & Uranus in Libra. I’m very interested in Buddhism and religions that are universal. I’m also semi-agnostic yet believe in a higher power, life force, Gods & Goddesses, the planets as Gods, etc… I’m multi-religious, spiritual. So in the end, I create my own religion or spirituality. Art is also in the domain of spirituality and theology.  It can speak volumes through not only word, such as elaborate poetry but also through image.  Many 9th house natives are artists of some kind.
                        • House of Philosophy: Your philosophical interests.  Your personal brand of philosophy.  How you judge others.  What you judge others about or what you can intelligently judge. How you philosophize.
                        • House of Reading & Publishing: What you publish, including: a thesis, book, blog posts, and advertising. The kind of desire you have to spread your word far and wide. What you like to read.
                        • House of Law, Justice: What you believe in. The level of importance that law or justice has on you.
                        • House of Long Distance Travel: The type of countries you would like to visit. Whether you visit alone, in groups, with a partner, etc. How you travel long distances. By boat, place, train, etc. The level of comfort you enjoy while traveling. The purpose for travel. How the people you meet during traveling affect you.
                        • House of Long Duration Study & Vocational Opportunities: Being close to the 10th and being the house of higher education (college, university, etc.) this house shows your educational aptitude and interests.  Whether you will want to study at-home or abroad.  The type of topic that may take a long time for you to study.  For example, I’m very much into relationships and I have studied this topic since my early twenties. It never seems to end!! *lol*
                        • House of Culture, Foreign People, Language: The type of people you encounter and possibly marry or despise that are not of your ethnicity. People outside of your nationality that teach you something about yourself. The kinds of languages you learn, why, and aptitude for learning different languages. Languages include not only regional language (as is with the 3rd house) but higher languages such as hieroglyphics, tongues, tarot, Enochian, astrology. The 9th house contains your ability to speak multiple languages.  It verbalizes, and communicates in an extroverted way — the 8th house.  The 9th house is not an embarrassed house.

                        Jupiter Libra and Uranus Libra (not aspected) in the 9th

                        Jupiter in the 9th house

                        From Astrology in Depth

                        Jupiter in the 9th – Reach afar / explore the world — You’re unusually lucky when it comes to higher education, foreign travel and philosophy. You might travel far and wide, seeking the advice and insight of foreigners, or those with quite different backgrounds. You have psychic ability: vivid dreams and inspirations. You may study occult or religious matters. You could use this skill to help others and to guide them in their lives. You may be involved in conventional education as a professor. You could also be involved in religion, such as an established church. You may use your abilities to be involved in legal work, especially where it involves the theory of law and the drafting of legislation and jurisdiction.

                        In summary: You take any opportunity to expand beyond the limits of what you already know and believe. You are a true philosopher, traveling tirelessly in the pursuit of knowledge.

                        Uranus in the 9th – Crazy ideas / freedom to the world — Uranus, planet of radical ideas, progression and adventure. It is considered the modern ruler of Aquarius. Its natural house is the 11th house. In the astrological chart, Uranus is considered a “transpersonal”, an extramundane, spiritual planet, reflecting a function that is beyond one-self and beyond social structures. It does not constitute a part of the basic psychological make-up of the personality, but rather lends itself to whatever personal planet it is aspecting.

                        From AstroVeda, Vedic Astrology

                        Uranus in the 9th

                        Your thinking, ideas and philosophies are original, offbeat,
                        independent and unorthodox. There may be a desire to study
                        metaphysics or a fringe religion or foreign culture. Sudden and
                        unexpected long journeys are possible. Mental journeys in the form of
                        dreams, visions, intuition and prophecies are possible. Your mind ever
                        seeks to expand, gain knowledge and journey where it has never gone
                        before. Too much mental activity, though, can cause nervousness and
                        perhaps lead to a mental breakdown.

                        I have off-the-wall or rather — what others consider far-out ideas about teaching and learning a subject. The JMAD Swap and TarotSeek are just *two* examples. It can be hard for others to wrap their head around these very simple twists on doing something with greater ease because they are such a departure from what had always been done AND how could I come up with it? ;P

                        I blame it on my Mercury Septile Jupiter and Mercury Semi-sextile Uranus aspects.

                          Abella Arthur: Toronto Astrologer, Psychic, Tarot Reader, Numerologist by PHONE and For HIRE!

                          Been busy trying to make a decent living doing what I love, and what I do best for others.

                          I can blog again when my bills are paid, and I’ve got a little extra on the side. 😉 Help me out.  haha

                          If you know more about astrology, focus on getting a tarot reading from me.  If you know more about tarot, focus on getting an astrology reading from me.  In other words, I generally am not best suited for those who have studied one thing or another extensively and are just trying to squeeze something more out of me that they can’t currently find on the Internet. 😉 Yes, I’m cheeky. ;P

                          Basically I have a method of delineating your whole chart so I can ‘synch’ with your vibrations and operating manual.  If you know too much about astrology, you may find this process a waste of your money and time, and I have little interest in spending most of the consultation on some obscure insights that you couldn’t find on your own.

                          I will WOW you if you can be a client, or are a new student of astrology who isn’t an autodidact, otherwise do consciously lower your expectations as I may not be the best reader for my peers.

                          Anyway… Yes, I’m an Astrologer (Aquarius a on the 2nd, Uranus Libra in the 8th/9th, Urania in the 11th), Psychic Tarot Reader (full Virgo house in the 8th including early degree Mercury Conjunct SN, & late degree Pluto along with Neptune in the 10th and Pisces NN intercepted in the 2nd who wrote a tarot book), and a Numerologist (see full 8th house). I also teach all this (Jupiter Libra in the 9th).

                          I was B O R N to do this — completely real, and authentic yet practical and spiritual.

                          People have asked if I have a full set of astrological aspect delineations to purchase.  I don’t, and I don’t foresee doing so any time soon.  If I did, I would probably write under a pen name and want an advance (non-existent these days?!) from a publisher. 😉 If you really want to read my book (that I haven’t written yet), contact some publishers and let them know.  My other website for astrology is Astrogasm. If you want it, help me out. I’ve already wrote and designed one book on my own dime, and I’m not really interested in doing that again any time soon.

                          My specialties are in love, relationships, dating, personal development, mental health, career, and educational pursuits. My Venus & Saturn aspects are almost fully contacted and well-aspected, and my 9th house contains Jupiter & Uranus. I can share my wisdom with you in these areas, and help you extract your own too. I’m no physical health or financial expert.

                          I also give face readings, and will draw you a portrait. And I’m working on a degree in fine art, as a back-up if this psychic gig doesn’t work out (been giving professional full time readings since 2005!). 😉

                          Okay, back to work I go.  Hope to give you a reading, and consult with you soon. Thanks for your support in booking, and/or recommending me.

                          Warm regards,

                          Abella

                            Natal Aspects: The Sun & Venus in hard aspect — Sun Semi-Square Venus, etc.

                            Sun: Self, light, brightness, creativity, essence, life force, the day (everyday).
                            Venus: Love, money, beauty, the arts, self-worth.
                            Square: 90° Causes tension, agitation, weightiness, obstacles to overcome. Has a Saturnian feeling.
                            Semi-Square: 45° Half a square but not half the meaning.  It’s more like — half the time. Semi-aspects have been experienced as ‘on and off’ and because it’s not ever-present, that could make it ‘minor’ in some astrologer’s eyes; however, it’s a higher harmonic and therefore has an importance to the overall well-being of the native. And a semi-square can be close to a Novile 40° and other harmonic aspects.  The astrology program used may not  factor in harmonic aspects. Has a Uranian feeling.
                            Novile: 40° The request here is to overcome your restrictions to manifest self-enhancement.  So if you actually have a Sun Novile Venus, the request here is to be more self-loving and allow the Sun to shine on your Venus — perhaps over-the-top self-loving, and unabashed ego. This is your destiny, if you will.

                            The semi-square asks for steady harmony and friendliness — all balanced, nothing over or understated. Just be YOU. You be you and I’ll be me. That’s what the semi-square is asking of you.

                            Sun Semi-Square Venus

                            Possible manifestations…
                            May also have meaning for Sun Semi-Sextile Venus during their *off* periods…

                            • Like Venus Leo, Sun Taurus out of harmony
                            • Denial of self-love, money, or beauty. Hard to accept money for services, compliments for beauty and personality.
                            • Beautiful and charming but that causing problems and agitation so can become self-destructive / destroy charm & beauty.
                            • Being overweight or underweight or prone to it.  Not dressing to make oneself look their best.
                            • Artistic temperament that gets messed up with other people’s judgements
                            • Retail therapy.  Spending money to feel better about self.
                            • Your father may like you a lot (like a friend) yet you may have problems with him at times throughout your life because of some side he took that offended you.
                            • Your father may have influenced your career choices.  There might be some ugly truth about your father that you rather disown.
                            • A relationship with others helps you love yourself more.  You may think others don’t like you because you are not beautiful, successful, or valuable enough for them or that you are too strong, direct, and unusually confident and sure of what you want out of life (even if it’s hard to get).
                            • You prefer soothing people and people who are soothing instead of picking fights but fights and arguments may erupt anyway.
                            • Sometimes you find yourself popular and then not.  Popularity seems to go in cycles and your effect on others is hot & cold. (Uranus… Saturn’s son)
                            • You may get along better and be appreciated more by men but you seek admiration from women.  Approval from women can help you feel beautiful, worthy, and successful.
                            • Not attracting love, money, beautiful or confident people.  Must have or do for yourself before others will give to you.
                            • Excessive and irresponsible sense pleasures causing tension and difficulty.
                            • Getting a sense that you are not worth anything unless you are financially well-off and/or sharing your riches with others.

                            Do you have this aspect? How does it affect you? What goals do you have to overcome this problem and what can you do to support that?

                            Example

                            Goal

                            I want to feel better about myself.  I want to: 1. lose weight, 2. get a fashion make-over or dress up nicely everyday, 3. be selfish, 4. Ignore Schadenfreude.  I was/am beautiful and my beauty was/is taken away by jealous people because I didn’t want them to feel bad themselves.  I downplayed my beauty in everyday ways.

                            How will I meet my goal?

                            • Take a little time out for myself everyday.  Self-pamper, play with myself, have fun!
                            • Smile often.  Feel and be alive. Feel that I belong to the world and my happiness, makes them happy.
                            • Know that I’m part of the beautiful people.  Act like a beautiful person.
                            • Develop affirmations. i.e.  I am loveable and other people feel love from me because I am.
                            • If I doubt myself in self-care: 1. Think, 2. Be positive, 3. Re-affirm.
                            • Contemplate and investigate what others have to say about Sun Semi-square Venus
                            • Do some self-love.

                             

                            What Others Say

                            At the time of writing this article, there isn’t / wasn’t much written on the Internet about Sun Semi-Square Venus.  What I did read was quite negative, un-supportive, and misses the mark (I believe).  While what they say might be true, they are not digging deep enough to understand the root problem or pain that the native with a Sun-Venus (in hard aspect) goes through.  This native is literally hard on themselves and that might mean they are hard on others too but one way to get out of that is to stop being so hard on themselves.

                            Oddly, I haven’t found a Sun Libra semi-square yet. 😉

                            After pouring over the charts of these notable Sun Semisquare Venus, I see the natives as being awkwardly sexy and charming.  There’s something about them that is ‘off’, yet there is something that draws you into their appearance too — they are attractive, in their unique way but there’s something uncomfortable about being attracted to it.  Sun-Venus is like Sun Libra / Taurus and Venus Leo. There also seems to be some gender bending — Men either are overly macho on the outside, but super soft when someone gets an inside peek (maybe even cross dressing) or they are super feminine on the outside and masculine on the inside (see David Bowie!). Same goes for the women.

                            The majority (if not all) of these notable people would be considered attractive, successful, and worthy!  Listen to the song below and think of these notable people, people you know that have this aspect, or yourself.  They had / have two sides — what the public sees and what is a reality behind-closed-doors (though the public might learn of it through dubious means – ie paparazzi or gossip).

                            Did you ever wonder why Britney Spears shaved her head all of a sudden?  Or why Princess Diana had an eating disorder and why was Angelina Jolie accused of starving herself?  Did Bill want to prove his worth, power, and sexiness by sexing it up with Monica Lewinsky? Jimmy Hoffa was so enigmatic that if he wasn’t for you, you would be against him.

                            Note: The Sun and Venus are never more than 47.8° apart.

                            I see aspects, as requests or opportunities.  The planets, as having plans.  The signs, as style (and how they carry out the plans of the planets).  The chart, a series of questions.  Your whole natal being, a quest.

                            Billy Corgan has Sun Semi-Sextile Venus.  As mentioned above, semi-anything means the aspect isn’t always active but when it is, it’s felt. For example, a Sun Semi-Square Venus can go to the spa every month but not pamper themselves until then. So Billy can understand a Sun Semi-Square Venus native because although he is loved, feels attractive, is good with his money, etc… it’s not always — on & off and because of that when he’s ‘off’ it’s like having a semi-square!!

                            I’ll never see what you see
                            It’s not me

                            I’ll never be what you need

                            I’m good enough, but I don’t care

                            Jack White, White Strips – I’m as Ugly as I Seem

                            I am as ugly as I seem
                            Worse than all your dreams
                            Could ever make me out to be
                            And it makes me want to scream
                            When it’s halloween
                            And the kids are laughing
                            The rogue is a bank he’s never broke
                            But worth as much as a joke that no one is laughing at

                            Can you believe some things are not
                            Appealing and there’s a spot
                            On the ceiling of my childhood bedroom
                            And can these dreams you can’t imagine
                            Will never match the vision
                            That you had decided for me
                            You are to take away from me
                            Things that are mine and it’s not your right
                            Out that you’d wouldn’t expect to find out
                            Can it be that I don’t want what you want?
                            And the only thing I could care for
                            Is a place in a home that is safe and warm
                            Safe and warm, safe and warm, safe and warm

                            Judge yourself if you feel the need
                            Just let me known to be
                            In search of the truth myself
                            There is a drop of blood on the ground
                            And it seems to me that it’s not my kind
                            And I can’t be sure if it’s yours or mine

                            I am as ugly as I seem
                            Worse than all your dreams
                            Could ever make me
                            Could ever make me
                            Could ever make me

                              (Numerology) What does 11-11-11 ~ November 11, 2011 ~ 11.11.11. ~ Eleven, Eleven, Eleven mean?

                              People are fascinated with repeating numbers such as 11, 11, 11 as there’s a sense that some added power manifests; they would be right. In numerology, numbers have significance. Lets take a look at the meaning the number eleven has and how this date affects the world, in general, and the people, as a whole.

                              11/11/11 — The day a spiritual portal is opened up to the material world and where spirit can live in harmony with matter…

                              In Numerology, the Master Number 11 is the most intuitive of all the Master Numbers. It refers to self illumination, a channel to the subconscious and having insight without rational thought. It is the number of the spiritual messenger, the intuitive with spiritual focus that is centered within the heart. The 11 is also highly inspirational, confident and charismatic in its positive influences.”  – Numerologist Lexi Brandis

                              Stuff about the Number Eleven / 11, 11-11-11, November 11, 2001, and Numerology

                              As we get closer to the year 2012, the desire of those that follow the Gregorian calendar is that of initiating spiritual enlightenment on this date — either consciously or subconsciously.  The people are ready to have a higher mind, to live a higher purpose, to help others even if they don’t get a direct return, to learn of, see, and speak the truth.   They want justice and others to act in integrity.  In this pursuit, people are willing to sacrifice their stability in a fanatical and overzealous way that could cause the sudden downfall of old foundations.

                              • When numbers are experienced as a date, anyone who connects to that calendar’s energy will connect to the vibration it’s giving out.  So if a country or culture follows another calendar, with another dating system, they are not likely to experience the vibrations of those numbers though if that country or culture is connected to those that do, they can be affected by that.
                              • Eleven is considered a master number. A master number resonates on a higher spiritual wave.
                              • Have you ever suddenly looked at your clock and saw it was exactly 11:11 ?  That means that you were connecting to a higher spiritual vibration at that time.  A message is being delivered to you through the angelic realm, possibly from your own internal spiritual realm.  Stop for a moment, next time that happens.  Ask yourself:  What message am I to receive?  Receive it.
                              • Some skeptics would say that seeing the number 11:11 on a clock, for example, is just a function of our reticular activator (basically having a higher attention about something you may not have had before — like seeing something you just bought (car, shoes, portable electronic) all over the place when you never saw much of it before) or apophenia (this seems like intuition and I could easily dispute Conrad’s original theory as others have too). Whether you are experiencing higher attention or “specific experience of an abnormal meaningfulness” — it doesn’t matter.  Because when it comes to seeing 11:11, your brain has understood this as being a ‘message’ there for you to reveal. So go reveal it…
                              • Back to the date of November 11, 2011.  The whole date adds up to an EIGHT.
                              • Some keywords include: visionary, inspirational, inspiring, spirituality, the higher mind, volunteerism, heavenly messages, optimism, education, insights, motivational, uplifting.
                              • In numerology, numbers get reduced; however, master numbers are never reduced in calculations.  Calculating 11 + 11 _ 2 + 11, we arrive at the number 35 which adds to an 8. While the numbers are 11, this will be an 8 day with 11 themes and energy. Interestingly, Edgar Cayce’s life path is a 35/8 and embodies the spirit of the number 11.
                              • In it’s lower vibration, 2 — some meanings include: co-operation, balance, harmony, negotiation, and fairness.
                              • Also, if we add 11 + 11 + 11, we get 33 and that is another master number.  I like to call this the Master Healer / Master Teacher Number.  It’s kind of martial arts in nature — the subtle and gentle types like Tai Chi.  The lower vibration of this number is 6 and that’s about support, groups, tribes, taking responsibility, intense creativity, unusual communication, balance, love, softness, soulful and alternative healing.
                              • The actual year 2011 adds up to a 13/4 which stands for planning, stability, structure, family, foundations, organization, design, teaching, compartments, architecture, tradition, etc..
                              • As we get closer to the year, 2012, the desire of those that follow the Gregorian calendar is that of spiritual enlightenment.  The people are ready to have a higher mind, to live for a higher purpose, to help others even if they don’t get a direct return, to see and speak the truth.   They want justice and others to act, in integrity.  In this pursuit, people are willing to sacrifice their stability in a fanatical and overzealous way

                              • Remembrance Day / Veteran’s Day (moment of silence at 11am!)

                               Possible Predictions

                              • This day (total date adds up to number eight) will reflect freedom as it relates to power, wealth, health, business, resources, respect, authority, management, success, ruthlessness, leaders, strength, will, organization, control, money, matter, breath, etc. with the themes and energy of the number eleven.
                              • World wealth is likely to see a change, for the better. Dow Jones could see a rise. The economy could bounce back having weathered recent storms. Update on 11,11,11 — Dow is currently UP.
                              • A marked change or display in civil disobedience and diplomacy
                              • Frustrations around difficulty in manifesting financial peace, initiating powerful inspiration and vision.
                              • Exciting, and sudden spiritual and humanitarian changes are likely.
                              • World leaders coming together to discuss world issues or beginning talks about plans to implement 8 type themes (see above) — Update:  Could this be about APEC?  First I ever heard of them.
                              • Justice and judgement are likely to be made.  This causes many to feel elated and successful.
                              • A spiritual awakening on a mass scale
                              • Initiating, and manifesting spiritual business and wellness.

                              This is an excerpt from my Life Path Numerology Generator as it relates to the number 8 and one’s path forward:

                              Life Path :: Business Leader / Physical Distribution (8)

                              Your core self includes your major challenge or karmic lesson, desire, gift, knowledge, life path, and destiny.Today, the way to your life path, mission, or purpose is shown; however, in a live reading session I analyze and intuit all different aspects of your core self into one complete picture to give you a powerful reading that gives deeper insight into your personality, career interests, relationship opportunities, challenges, and so forth.

                              A life path, mission, or purpose is something a lot of people try to define for themselves. The funny thing is that it’s right before your eyes, nothing earth shattering and something you are always drawn to do. In fact, you may find yourself having a hard time achieving success working through your path but that’s part of the process of life, death, and being reborn (should you choose to believe in reincarnation).

                              Also your major challenge or karmic lesson, desire, gift, knowledge, life path, and destiny together makes a difference in where and how you work and live. Therefore, your life path may express itself in a slightly different way than what it says below. In addition, an inability to harmonize strengths and challenges can keep one away from their path. Please keep all these points in mind while reading and question yourself thoroughly.

                              Your life purpose is power, wealth, and health. You have the ability to manage resources quite well and because of this you are likely to run your own business, be the boss, and make lots of money!! In fact a spa, chiropractic clinic, or a health food business healing the body might really interest you as well but that all depends on the rest of your core personality and if you are still trying to find your way, let me assist you!

                              For number 11, it is Your life purpose is vision & enlightenment. As a rare individual you have the ability to see things many others do not and this leads to open many doors to new experiences.

                              ~

                              Taken from my Gift Numerology Generator for the number eleven as it relates to a gift or strength that one possesses:

                              Gift :: Inspirational Visionary (11)

                              Your core self includes your major challenge or karmic lesson, desire, gift, knowledge, life path, and destiny.Today, the way to your gift is shown; however, in a live reading session I analyze and intuit all different aspects of your core self into one complete picture to give you a powerful reading that gives deeper insight into your personality, career interests, relationship opportunities, challenges, and so forth.

                              This free on-line reading has a lot of limitations and is not to be considered the whole of your self but rather a part of the whole.Your major gift is easy and comes naturally to you and everyone sees it plain and clear that that is what you are good at even if it isn’t acknowledged.

                              The following is not your only gift but is the main one which everyone would recognize within you.Also your major challenge or karmic lesson, desire, gift, knowledge, life path, and destiny together makes a difference in where and how you work and live. Therefore, your gift may express itself in a slightly different way than what it says below. In addition, self-esteem and other issues may be a factor as to whether you decide to suppress or use your gift. Please keep all these points in mind while reading and question yourself thoroughly.

                              When you are at your best you inspire, uplift, educate, and motivate others to move beyond surface reality. Naturally you are gifted at understanding the spiritual energies of people, places, and things.You help individuals all over the world take action and achieve their potential. However, if in the land of the darkness you may find yourself floating and not knowing quite how to use your gift to good ends. You may also use the lower vibrations of your gift by coaching, consulting, and counseling locally. This usually arises out of desire not to assert yourself forward. If this is the case, be cognizant that if you take the first step, you help others place their foot first too.

                              Some keywords: principal, photographer, teacher, inspiration, educating, volunteering, missionary, graphic designer, advertiser, spiritual guru, brand developer, individuals helping other individuals, Habitat for Humanity, Deepak Chopra, Steven Covey, Naomi Wolf.

                              Connects with the energy of Sun signs: ALL with brightest being Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, Pisces, Virgo and Elements: Earth, Fire, Water, & Air

                              For number 8, it’s When at your best you understand and use mass (body, money, resources, skin, objects, and people) like no one else’s business. In fact, you probably run your own business or at the very least run someone else’s. Your motto is power, wealth, and health and your energy is unstoppable. Naturally you are gifted at anything to do with money, control & distribution, and/or the body. This can manifest in anything to do with business, industry, or physical health and breath. However, if in the land of darkness dominance, deceit, greed, and unethical practices can manifest and these unfriendly decisions can lead to the downfall of yourself and others. In this case, be cognizant that your ability to move mass can backfire if you do not consider the feelings, impressions, and thoughts of other people. (mass is weird)

                              About Abella Arthur, Numerologist & Numerology

                              Abella is considered a Numerologist because she studies and practices the art of numbers as related to prediction and how your life is affected by numbers. The way we love, work, and our purpose on this planet (amongst other things) can be found in numbers.

                              She has a natural affinity for numbers — how they look, the shape, what it’s saying to us esoterically.

                              Dates. Dates have a prominent importance in our life because they consist of numbers. And numbers, the universe, and everything living (which is essentially everything) has numerical vibrations.

                              Pythagoras, the Philosopher, Mathematician, Numerologist, Astronomer, Teacher and Musician (inspired by Egyptian God, Thoth — it appears), learned the powers of numbers while traveling to areas such as Egypt and Hindustan. For 22 years he learned from the Rabbis about the secret traditions of Moses as well as the Egyptian priests of Thebes, the Phoenicians, Syrians, and the Greek philosophers. In fact he came up with the term philosophy, Sophia, which means the love of wisdom.

                              There are many forms of numerology practiced:  western, eastern, geomatria, etc.  Abella practices an Eastern method shared with her by a friend who received that teaching from a guru.

                              She can be contacted for interviews about the date of November 11, 2011, 11/11/11, 11-11-11

                              “Intuition is a combination of historical (empirical) data, deep and heightened observation and an ability to cut through the thickness of surface reality. Intuition is like a slow motion machine that captures data instantaneously and hits you like a ton of bricks. Intuition is a knowing, a sensing that is beyond the conscious understanding — a gut feeling. Intuition is not pseudo-science.” – Abella Arthur

                                Given I’m an Astrologyphile as well, it would feel so wrong not to delineate the date of November 11, 2011. See my post about 11/11/11 as it relates to NUMEROLOGY.

                                Astrology Stuff about November 11, 2011

                                • November is the 11th month of the Gregorian calendar
                                • This is the starting month for the sign of Sagittarius and we are still in the sign of Scorpio, third decan. The third decan for Scorpio begins on the 11th! November 11 to November 21

                                  The Third Decan of Scorpio is also known as the Cancer Decante and the “Week of Charm.” The influence of the Moon (this Decan’s secondary ruling Planet) lends these natives the ability to become exceptional nurturers and financial wizards. Generally speaking, a person governed by this Decante will enjoy a strong and lifelong bond with his or her mother…which is a good thing unless it results in an eventual lesser bond with the chosen mate. These individuals tend to be somewhat haughty by nature, but are fair-minded and blessed with remarkable energy. Still, they can be unyielding to the extreme. With a tendency to make sure they are right, those ruled by this Third Decan then decide that whatever they do must be on point. Subject in part to the caprices of the ever-changing Moon can create problems here. However, these natives are usually well-liked and harbor a fondness for pleasure and amusement. These are souls who desire to leave a legacy to loved ones and favorite causes. Money, privacy, loyalty and property are of supreme importance. A skilled keeper of secrets, these individuals will carry mysteries and resentments to their graves. Because they have remarkable memories and sensitive hearts, they will hang on to sorrow for an inordinate length of time. An aura of enchantment tends to surround those governed by this Decante. They are caring, abiding and more domesticated than other Scorpio natives. Canny, subtle and adaptable, to say nothing of being blessed with stunning powers of concentration, these are persons who can charm their way to worldly success…and into the heart of a chosen mate. The motto of the Third Decan of Scorpio is “Manifestation.” Novareinna, Constellation Chamber

                                • Some keywords for Sagittarius are: bluntly honest, truth seeker, philosopher, traveler, bohemian, fine artist or a massive appreciation of the arts, educated, justice-oriented often fighting for the underdog, religious or spiritual, culturally aware, connecting to foreign people, places, and things.
                                • Some keywords for Scorpio are: desirous of the truth, investigative, mass appreciation for transformation and death of what is no longer is to survive, intense, deep, strategic & tactical, dominant, directorial, boiling water.
                                • The number eleven is connected to Aquarius, Sagittarius, the 11th and 9th houses.
                                • The number eight is connected to Capricorn, Scorpio, 10th and 8th houses
                                • This day falls on a Friday which is representative of Venus.  Venus is the day of love, beauty, money, and the arts. Venus soothes.

                                Possible Outcomes (Predictions)

                                I’ll take the predictions used for the numerology article and transpose it here.  They really shouldn’t be much different.

                                • This day is generally about initiating progress about money, love, spirituality, and illusions.
                                • World wealth is likely to see a change, for the better. Dow Jones could see a rise. The economy could bounce back having weathered recent storms.
                                • A marked change or display in civil disobedience and diplomacy
                                • Frustrations around difficulty in manifesting financial peace, initiating powerful inspiration and vision.
                                • Exciting, and sudden spiritual and humanitarian changes are likely.
                                • World leaders coming together to discuss world issues or beginning talks about plans to implement 8 type themes (see above)
                                • Justice and judgement are likely to be made.  This causes many to feel elated and successful.
                                • Initiating, and manifesting spiritual business and wellness.

                                Astrologers’ Section

                                I could spend hours, weeks, months, and years on a chart so I’ll pick two themes for the day and take a look… I’ll probably come back to this.  I’m not feeling it much right now and mundane astrology isn’t my “Happy Spot” to spend a lot of playtime. Hopefully you’ll add your insights to the comment section.

                                Money

                                The strongest Money planets include Venus and Pluto.  Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter can tell us how that manifests and maintains itself.  The money houses are the 2nd and 8th house.  We can look at how the 9th, 10th, and 11th houses connect to these houses.

                                In the Toronto, Canada chart for this day: Venus is in the 5th house.  Jupiter in the 9th (at home). Saturn is in the 3rd.  Uranus in the 8th.

                                Aspects

                                I’m only posting the following Venus aspects; however, I’m scanning the other planetary configurations as well.

                                • Mercury Conjunct Venus – Powerful financial communication occurs on a daily basis.  Something is being done about the economy.
                                • Venus Binovile Chiron – Financial healing through a marriage or partnership.  A fix which has been a long time coming.
                                • Venus Biseptile Mars – Gaining an understanding of how to merge money from different places.
                                • Venus Biquintile Jupiter – Creatively causing an expansive flow of money through different places.  Taking a risk via use of other people’s money.
                                • Venus Conjunct North Node – Powerful financial future is ahead.
                                • Venus Ascension* Pluto – Enlightened financial transformation.

                                * This is a degree / aspect type I have made up based on my observations of what this kind of contact creates.

                                Spirituality

                                The strongest Spirituality planets include Neptune and Jupiter.  The spiritual houses are the 12th and 9th. Supporting houses include the 4th, and 8th. Neptune can be deception and Jupiter optimistic.

                                In the Toronto, Canada chart for this day: Neptune is in the 7th house of partnerships, contracts, and commitments.  Jupiter in the 9th (at home) of foreigners and foreign affairs, spirituality, justice, amongst other things.

                                I’m only posting the following Neptune aspects; however, I’m scanning the other planetary configurations as well. Also, I’m only posting personal to transpersonal information in addition to points, angles, Chiron.

                                • Nep    Square     Mon – Spiritual and emotional obstacles and conflicts.  It can be difficult to reconcile what is felt.
                                • Nep    TrUn    Sun – Spiritual identity along with the connection that psychic gifts become known and belong to many. Technology plays a part.
                                • Nep    Opposition – Mar – An aversion to or extreme use of spiritual warfare.
                                • Nep    Conjunt     Chi – Powerfully healing spiritual ills.
                                • Nep    Quntile     Nod – Creatively reaching towards a spiritual and psychic future.
                                • Nep    Opposition   Asc –  Spiritual first impressions causes a push / pull reaction. Some people not ready to move in that direction yet.
                                • Nep    BiNovile     MC – Spiritual business, artistic business, and all other types of metaphysical businesses experience a growth spurt.

                                Other Stuff

                                The North Node is also something to consider as it relates to destiny and one’s future.  I’ll also look at the MC, the highest point and most visible ‘news’, as well as the AC — what the general public may see in the news, at first glance.  And since Jupiter and the 8th house are overlapping elements, I’ll pay extra special attention that too.

                                The following Mundane charts can be used to connect world transits to what may happen in your own country.  I’m from Canada and most of my blog visitors are from the United States so I’m including these charts.

                                Aspects

                                If the following looks like a foreign language or unexplainable shorthand to you, just ignore it.  This section is for astrologers who know how to read the short hand. Also note that I work with harmonics so the aspects are listed as such! Harmonics are also very much connected to numerology.  The number 11 is connected with the Undecile so I’ll be looking for that aspect and the Septile (the 7th / 14th harmonic) is also considered a highly divine / spiritual number. I’ll also take a look at the Octile (8th / 16th harmonic) which is close to the ‘square”.

                                Incoming search terms:

                                  (TarotSeek) What will happen on 11-11-11 ~ November 11, 2011 ~ 11.11.11. ~ Eleven, Eleven, Eleven?

                                  Here, I’m doing a TarotSeek session to see what will happen as it relates to World Events. This area is often a challenge for me because I have stronger interests in helping individuals live better and self-informed lives rather than looking at mundane world events; however, it’s an auspicious day to look at so here it goes… 🙂

                                  Overall significance for November 11, 2011 (The World card) is the blending of the spiritual and material worlds.  A spiritual portal opens up to the material world, to the world (signified by Saturn).

                                  Question 1 of 4

                                  Ace of Cups / Controlling Restraint

                                  Question: I asked what will happen to the Dow Jones on Friday?

                                  Response: [Worked with the Bright Ideas Tarot for this session, card picture not included] First thing I saw was a lot of angry people. Then I saw security trying to calm people down. Some people look depressed, others dissatisfied yet contemplative on what to do next, yet mostly people were angry. I see a mob walking out on the street.

                                  Analysis: The suggestion here is that the Dow Jones is likely to plummet though I said in my numerology and astrology article that it was likely to rise. In this case, it could be that people are angry because they thought it would take a nose dive and it didn’t.  It will be interesting to see how things go. 🙂 Either way, I’m right or wrong!? lol

                                  Advice, Action, or Suggestion: Will take a look at the Dow tomorrow. Maybe it takes a hard hit and then gets artificially saved — reminiscent of the Depression era. Update:  The Dow Jones went UP!  2.5% globally, 2.9% US, 2.06% Europe!

                                  I really like asking specific and direct questions.  General questions get general responses and then I got to figure out what is what… (as per below).

                                  Question 2 of 4

                                  6 of Coins, Co-operation

                                  Question: I asked what world news would be released on November 11, 2011

                                  Response: [Worked with the Bright Ideas Tarot for this session, card picture not included] Taurus! Money! The Earth! Working together to build something that is made out of non-lasting substance. Working diligently to use resources of the earth to make something more fantastic.

                                  Analysis: This card is ruled by Taurus. Taurus is about financial stability, growth, the finer things in life, security.  The suggestion of this card is that natural resources will be discussed in the news.  There is likely talk about money and how the world will work together to grow it; however, it might be artificially grown as mentioned above.

                                  Advice, Action, or Suggestion: Check the news out tomorrow. Update:  Could this be part of it? News about meeting regarding oil sands (natural resources of Alberta) between Canada and the United States.

                                  The major discussion points for the meeting include North American competitiveness (including job creation, efficient borders and energy integration), as well as citizen security (addressing organized crime and cyber security) and sewing stronger ties throughout the Americas.

                                  “Many of today’s global challenges require a strong and united North American response,” Harper said in a statement. “I look forward to working with presidents Obama and Calderon on strengthening our collective economic competitiveness and security for the greater good of citizens in all three countries.”

                                  Question 3 of 4

                                  3 of Cups / Celebration

                                  Question: What will the financial situation be on November 11, 2011?

                                  Response: [Worked with the Bright Ideas Tarot for this session, card picture not included] Mercury Cancer. Speaking about celebrating, family, getting gifts, togetherness, tribe.

                                  Analysis: I get a sense that Canada and the United States will be working together — that many countries will work together to use each other’s assets to strengthen the world economy.  Togetherness is a big theme for this day — communicating working together.  So there’s a bit of a celebratory nature to the day.  

                                  Advice, Action, or Suggestion: Check the news out tomorrow. Update:  Same as above?!

                                  Question 4 of 4

                                  5 Hierophant / Guidance & Passage / Death

                                  Question: Tell me what will happen on November 11, 2011 in the world…

                                  Response: [Worked with the Bright Ideas Tarot for this session, card picture not included] Perhaps there will be a presidential / prime minister address about an economy which needs to transform. Taking one step at a time so the top can be reached. Carrying the weight of the world.

                                  Analysis: Here again, the economy and money comes up.  An old way, old tradition needs to end.  A new economy, and world financial view is being ushered in.

                                  Advice, Action, or Suggestion: Check the news out tomorrow. Update: Could this be it? Lucas Papademos sworn in as Greece’s prime minister

                                  Greece has turned a historic page with a new unity government led by Lucas Papademos, a technocratic economist, being ushered into power…

                                  “We must all assume out responsibilities to take the country forward,” the new prime minister said, addressing his first cabinet meeting. “We are living through critical and historic times and it is imperative that we co-operate.”

                                  “This is the end of one-party governments, this is the end of traditional fiscal policies and this is the end of the clientelistic system,” said commentator Pashcos Mandravelis. “We have had to learn the hard way because of the economic crisis. Everything has or will change.”

                                    Part One: An Introduction to the 3rd House, Third House Astrology Series

                                    http://ve.torontopubliclibrary.ca/toronto_sanctuaries/secular.html

                                    The third house is the house of everyday communication, siblings, close neighbours, co-workers, your immediate environment, short distance travel, short duration education, the lower mind, church, lower truths.

                                    Mercury is related to how one thinks, speaks, communicates, what one likes to talk about, how one learns, short trips, letters, mail, the type of relationship one has with their siblings, co-workers, and how they might approach their career or skills within their career. Mercury naturally rules the 3rd house.

                                    Stuff about the 3rd House.

                                    • Ruled by Mercury (Gemini, co-ruling Virgo).
                                    • House Axis: 3 /9
                                    • Aspect / Planet – Sign: (Gemini / Virgo) Mercury Opposition Jupiter (Sagittarius) The JMAD Swap: Mercury Sagittarius / Jupiter Gemini. Virgo is also ruled by Mercury. Gemini is in Sextile with Leo (the 5th house) and Aries (1st house); therefore, these houses stimulate and piggy-back off of each other. The third house is also in harmony with the 11th (Aquarius) and 7th (Libra).
                                    • Mercury Conjunct Jupiter is very powerful because they are the natural ruling planets of their respective opposite house…
                                    • Everyone has 3rd house themes. This is the house of The Superficial or Lower Mind or when house ownership is taken, it can be viewed as The Mind of Thorough Knowledge & Deep Truths.
                                    • Third House: Lower Mind. Close to self. 9th House: Higher Mind. At a distance.
                                    • House Themes: Everyday communication, siblings, close neighbours, co-workers, your immediate environment, early development, short distance travel, short duration education, the lower mind, church, lower truths.

                                    3rd House Themes

                                    • House of Everyday Communication: The Lower Mind. Lower truths. How you speak, converse, dialogue. What you think about. What makes you curious. How you think.

                                    The outer planets in the third may indicate early contact with transpersonal thought, ideas and messages. This may have been confusing for the child, but may eventually lead to an ability to communicate archetypal concepts through writing, speaking and acting as well as through the arts. Both Al Gore and George W. Bush have Neptune in the third.Neptune can equate to a tendency to inflate and glamorize ones ideas and ideals – a polite was of saying: a prevaricator. ~ Eleanor Buckwalter

                                    Many astrologers have Pluto in the third house.

                                    What’s in your 3rd house? If nothing is in it, what is in your 3rd house cusp? What have you experienced as 3rd house themes? Anything else you want to share about the 3rd house?

                                    I have Aries on the 3rd house cusp. Mars is the ruler of the house. I’m an autodidact (self-learner). I learn quickly. I speed-read. Maybe I miss the details sometimes when I’m reading. I tend to be an aggressive communicator; however, I’m working on Venus soothing up my communications with others. I take the lead. If there’s an uncomfortable pause, I’ll fill in the space. I like to write quickly. One reason why I like Twitter dumps…

                                      Aries in Chiron, 3rd house

                                      Between 1952 and 1989 Chiron was in exact opposition to Uranus forty-one times, and in orb of opposition in the charts of most people born during that period. – Zane Stein

                                      Current Chiron World Transits

                                      Chiron is currently in Pisces 0°, is trining Sun & Moon Scorpio both at 3°, is sextile Jupiter Taurus and Pluto Capricorn at 5°, semi-sextile Uranus at 1° Aries and Neptune Aquarius 28° — that’s a lot of Chiron action going on in the cosmos…

                                      • Chiron Trine Sun
                                      • Chiron Trine Moon
                                      • Chiron Sextile Jupiter
                                      • Chiron Sextile Pluto
                                      • Chiron Semi-sextile Uranus

                                      About this Article

                                      I have been curious about Chiron for some time but it felt like too heavy an asteroid to write about and I’m not exactly writing about it here either….

                                      A draft article was written on Nov 26, 2010 @ 6:18 — 12 months ago, on this day!! I’m finding it now because I’m ready to work on the 3rd house article and wanted to see if I wrote up any notes.  I found this one about me.  I don’t usually make a post all about me but I figure that someone out there probably has Chiron Aries in the third house so this post might benefit you or one of your clients, friends, or loved ones.

                                      Anyway, I have expanded my original draft and… oddly I’m posting this on Wednesday, Wodan’s Day, Mercury — since this post relates to communication.

                                      And another Oddly, I had only bought The Twelve Houses by Howard Sasportas a couple of weeks ago and I was all excited about a revelation I read about my placement.  Sasportas said this about Chiron in the 3rd: “Some with this placement may have difficulty fitting into the early schooling situation or have learning or speech difficulties.” But I ALREADY knew that since that’s what I wrote down in this blog post back in November 2010 and what I thought may have been my Chiron problems in the house of communication. Aha!

                                      This is one reason why writing and reviewing a personal and professional diary is so very helpful to one’s progress as well as remind us where we came from, where we are, and where we can go.

                                      Chiron: Your wounds, how you feel wounded, how you can wound others, how you can heal other’s wounds. It’s suggested Chiron is ruled by Virgo, Pisces, and/or Sagittarius
                                      Aries: In mythology, Ares is the God of War. Aggression, boldness, immaturity, courage, self-oriented, fearlessness, temper tantrums, adventurous, frustrated, leader-oriented, angered, a child — like a newborn.
                                      3rd House: Communication, siblings, neighbours, short distance travel, short duration education, the lower mind, church, lower truths

                                      …and it’s also important to look to the opposite house too.  Opposite signs, houses, and planets are magnetic and connected.

                                      9th House: Philosophy, in-laws, distant relatives and foreigners, long distance travel, long duration education, the higher mind, religion, higher truths

                                      Speech Wounds in Childhood and Today

                                      • Speech problems, lisp
                                      • What I say can hurt; it can hurt me and others.
                                      • Called scatterbrained in grade 6 because my thought faster than speech
                                      • Have dyslexia.  This is considered a learning disability but can become a gift, once accepted (healed). Known for extremely good spelling and word knowledge, because I had a photographic memory (not as strong as childhood); however, sentences and letters were backwards. I thought in a backwards way (still do) so it was hard for teachers to understand what I was saying and writing sometimes.  And sometimes I misunderstood what was being asked of me.  I was advised I wouldn’t make it in university because of my reading comprehension yet my IQ is above average. Grades in school fluctuated on whether a teacher taught in a particular way.  I like being taught in a style that’s animated, moves, and that tells a verbal story in a visual way so I can draw a mental picture.
                                      • Had mouth covered by siblings because I talked too much
                                      • I was much younger than my siblings, at the time
                                      • Got all tongue tied around figures of authority (better written as, ‘authority figures’…)
                                      • Not feeling heard.  Others can say the same thing but people pay attention to them.  I can ask for something directly and it be thoroughly ignored.

                                       

                                      Aspects in orb with Chiron as it relates to Mars & Mercury

                                      • Chiron Aries (3rd house, Mars Ruler)  is in opposition of Uranus Libra (9th house Venus Ruler) — Libra and the 9th house can relate to languages.  And I have a natural affinity and fair ease in learning languages; however, when it’s in opposition to Chiron — it can mean I am wounded by my native language (English).  English, to me, has severely lacked.  There were not enough precise words readily known, to explain and express what I was feeling or sensing.  It just seemed, lacking.  Uranus Libra, as it pertains to learning, represents a highly different or innovative way of learning and with a small class, where partnership, intimacy, and co-operation amongst students, is one of the best ways to learn advanced concepts.  With Chiron Aries in the third, I felt alone in my learning process but I imagine I learned to make that work for me since I’m an autodidact now.
                                      • This placement can also mean that because of my communication wounds in childhood and my young adulthood, it didn’t set me up with clear confidence and direction for higher education.  Yet, I’m an eternal student.  And here goes the opposition of “but’s”… very Libra… A vacillation to and from…. On one hand, this — but on the other hand, that. But the great thing about oppositions, is that they are conjunctions — in disguise. A mirror.  An opposition means:  Differences projected or displaced, a separation, a blind-spot, a wall between, two sides to the story, attraction vs. repulsion, push vs. pull, back vs. forth, same goals but different ways of expressing it.  A conjunction means: Power, an overpowering urge to merge, inseparable, and no distinction.
                                      • Chiron Trine Sun & Mars Leo (7th house) — Without the contact type in mind, this connection can mean: Self-healing, Personal Healing, or Self-wounds, Personal Wounds (Sun), and Aggressive, Sexual, or Creative Healing / Wounding / Wounds (Mars).  What heals, can hurt.  What hurts, can heal. My wounds and what I can teach others, are in harmony with my Sun and Mars in the house of partnership.  In other words, my partners, associates, clients, and best friends benefit from my wounds, how I have healed, and what I have learned about healing — because I accept and understand the small voice within and I encourage others to get their needs met, and to vocalize feelings and thoughts, etc..  I encourage and facilitate healing.
                                      • Chiron Inconjunct / Quincunx Mercury Virgo (8th house, Mercury Ruler) – Without the contact type in mind, this connection can mean Healing Communication / Analysis or Communication / Analysis that Heals.
                                      • This contact can be found in the charts of mental healers, psychic surgeons, psychologists, psychics, astrologers, and other metaphysicians and philosophers especially if Chiron or Mercury is found in the 8th or 9th house.
                                      • For me, there’s an adjustment to be made in how I communicate deep truths that are meant to heal, especially around psychology and how others operate.  I ask others to adjust their perspective on what people say and what they see.  To analyze the truth of what is being said and how it heals or wounds.  Therefore, I help others heal not only themselves but others because healing oneself, heals others.
                                      • When I was younger, I didn’t realize I helped people heal and that my words meant anything — until many years later.  People surprisingly told me (long after the fact) that I healed them in some way.  Today, I get to hear about my impact much more quickly, often on-the-spot and that’s what I prefer to know.  I prefer to know how I’m affecting someone (for good or bad) TODAY! It’s the Aries way. 🙂

                                      My other Chiron aspects are: Chiron-Moon, Chiron-Jupiter, Chiron-Neptune, Chiron-Ascendant, Chiron-North Node and all making higher (spiritual and self-development) harmonic connections. Chiron is currently transiting in my 2nd house making a conjunction to my North Node, and Opposition to Mercury.  Get ready for me world…

                                      Aries on the 3rd House Cusp

                                      With Aries on the 3rd house cups, it’s like having a Mercury-Mars aspect, which I don’t have natally.

                                      Aries on the 3rd can signal: One-sided conversations.  Aggressive, loud, or assertive way of speaking.  Speaking over another person.  Not being afraid to say what one wants.  Passionate thinking process.  passionate way of expressing one’s thoughts. Flirtatious.  Confident speech. Child-like or immature way of communicating.  Not knowing right from wrong as it pertains to what is communicated.

                                      But it also means, I have Libra on the 9th.  Co-operative, harmonious, flowing language of the higher mind. Small talk is not a feature.  Philosophical thought, using big and expressive words is more often utilized.  I seek education where the teacher is the student and vice versa — this is inline with my fortified teaching method.  And I prefer small class learning experiences where the one with the talking stick (i.e. the Teacher or Facilitatorconnects deeply and values each individual and their contribution within the group.

                                      My ruler of the 3rd is in my 7th so that just adds to the challenge. And Mercury, the natural house ruler of the 3rd, is in my 8th.  The 8th is naturally ruled by Pluto and co-ruled by Mars.  So there’s a lot of strength, intensity, and power in how I communicate.  I leave a lasting impression and hit immediately / deeply, yet I imagine some may have and do find me too much and therefore push away from associating what they learned with me because of how I deliver/ed my message. And I have been working on that.  My Venus is fully activated so I have been channeling as much of that into my communication style with others.  Left to my own devices, I wouldn’t pay attention to the effect (too busy talking and trying to get my point across) I have on the other person’s feelings while talking to them and even today, I don’t always know what effect I’ll have on another.  But if the person speaks up, they’ll get their needs met and I’ll cool down if that’s desired.

                                      Fixing Chiron in the 3rd Problems

                                      This is what I have done or I am doing to fix my Chiron in the 3rd problems:

                                      • Be discerning about when to use force, with speech.
                                      • Pay attention to whether others, in environment, can handle what I’m saying (too much, too soon).
                                      • Took early speech therapy to remove my lisp
                                      • Slowed down my thoughts like a martial artist slowing down their physical movements
                                      • Read everything I could on how to communicate better, with an emphasis on oral communication (my weakest way to communicate anything of value, or anything of the higher mind).
                                      • With Gemini on my 5th and 6th, I’m writing and communicating a lot.  Fancy how I could have dyslexia & Chiron in my 3rd — making communicating and writing more challenging but something I love and feel, need to do. Double check what I have wrote before sending and then read again after sending or after some time passes.  Unfortunately, for casual or urgent communication, that’s not always something I can do.  Have someone edit important written documents. Make my own mental pictures.  Don’t wait for anyone else to do it for me.
                                      • If someone doesn’t want to listen or care for what I say, don’t talk to them.  What I’m having to get over is the shock of someone else truly listening.  There’s a quiet in their voice, I can hear a complete shut-down in what they want to say next, because they are deeply listening to what I have to say.  That is still unnerving to me because it doesn’t happen enough to be normal.
                                      • Authority, celebrity, or anyone considered better or bigger than me, isn’t really that afterall. It’s a perception of illusion.  They have similar challenges, emotions, feelings, and physical make-up as myself.  They are no better or bigger but a star in their own right as I am a star in my own right.
                                      • Learn to communicate in a way that is palatable, acceptable, and easy-for-others to understand.  Strip the eccentricities and abstractness out of my speech, at least when it’s for mass market.  And perhaps channel the eccentricities into art, where it’s generally most appreciated.
                                      • Ask for what I need directly.  If my needs are not being met, demand or take them for myself (as long as the rights of others are not violated and I’m not being criminal!). Ask to be heard.  If I’m not, move away from those who obviously don’t want to hear me. No loss on either side, yes?!

                                       

                                      How can my Chiron in the 3rd, Teach and Heal Pain in Other People?

                                      Consciousness heals.

                                      • I’m here to help people better communicate.  It’s part of my mission: To help people communicate with themselves and in turn with others.  If you can’t have a good conversation with yourself, surely you won’t be able to have one with anyone else.
                                      • I help people to: Slow it down, use their words, get heard, be respected, use their language — whether that be visual, tactical, verbal, etc.

                                      Where is your Chiron?  What house?  How can you or have you healed your pain?  How can you or have you taught or healed that pain in others?

                                      About Chiron in the 3rd:

                                      A person with Chiron in Aries here may well feel as though they are not heard, or that their opinions do not matter because they are not considered or well formed enough. The gift of Chiron awakened here is the realisation of great power to speak, to rouse to action and to energize through the words. – Jeremy Neal of Chirotic Journal

                                      I would agree that while I have felt and to some extent, still feel unheard, I know that my words and what I say ARE received and people are energized to act even if they don’t attribute that to what I said. So it’s in knowing this, that I recognize the power of my behind-the-scenes effect on others and can therefore design my communications with that in mind. This then alleviates my frustrations of not being heard, when I know full-well that I am but just not accepted, applauded, or recognized by a majority for a reason I haven’t fully resolved yet.

                                      The work Jeremy did on Chiron in Aries is amazing.  As it relates to Chiron Aries in the third, most people would think I completed university (I haven’t).  I have read through dictionaries and encyclopedias for pure joy (remember that Gemini is likely on the 5th for anyone who has Aries on the third) because we like to know a lot of little facts — it’s interesting.  I’m what one would call an autodidact, a self-learner and I do so with great vigor.

                                      Having Mars rule my third and then be in my 7th, of open enemies — there is a suggestion that whatever I say can evoke strong feelings of competition and aggression from others (as well as that coming from me).  What I say tends to be pointed, sure and unwavering statements.  I have been working on bringing in Venus more often to soothe the force of Mars.

                                        Synastry & Natal: The Romeo & Juliet Aspect – Venus Square Saturn in LOVE – Part One

                                        The Romeo and Juliet Aspect

                                        ♀ ☐ ♄ I can’t have the love that I want.  The love I don’t want, I want.  I want to love.  I don’t want the love I can have.  I don’t want to love.  This love isn’t for me.  Eventually, I might give my love.  Love comes with hoops and hurdles. I feel unloved. An itch you can’t scratch.

                                         

                                        Venus Square Saturn is an astrological aspect that can show in a natal birth chart or it can be a combined energy that occurs between the native and another or others.

                                        This aspect gives a cold chill, when faced with love, to the native or relationship and any harmonious compatibility that may be present just adds to the chill factor. Because if there are other aspects in the chart that cause hot chemistry, the native or natives are more likely to not want to get involved and open up to what is perceived as a Pandora’s Box.  In fact, sabotage becomes almost a sure thing. A dampening after a quickening of love feelings is what often happens.  Excuses will be made, and delays will almost seem as if on purpose. This aspect pushes more than it pulls. Love doesn’t seem to be on the radar of the native or the individual(s) and more than anything it’s because of fear.  This aspect feels like winter or ice, Venus Capricorn or Aquarius, and Saturn Libra.

                                        Natal Venus Square Saturn

                                        12. Not being “attractive”.  Not because you are not, but because there’s not a genuine focus on a vibrant approach.

                                        14. Loving from afar…. bittersweet and silent romance.
                                        15. Not wanting to limit yourself to just one romance or love relationship, especially in case it’s not the right one or won’t be the one to bring a sense of complete love for the long haul.

                                        1. Something keeps you away from being with each other or allowing love to develop.
                                        2. Marriage, divorce, separation, children, relationship, busy career, unaccepted different culture or ethnic group, unaccepted different religion or sexual preference, greatly differing values, going to different schools or living a great distance (different countries) from each other are some reasons why the relationship will not thrive.
                                        3. Untouchable…. she or he is so high “above” or “below” me.
                                        4. Wanting the one who plays in the relationship, to work.

                                        11. Longevity of love:  Over a long period of time, somehow running back into each other but not taking it all the way to something of substance.
                                        12. Continuing to maintain the look and feel of a connection when no serious attempt will be made to make it physical.

                                        16. One or both of you not wanting to limit the love given to others therefore creating a possible ‘adulterous’ affair.

                                        Mini Brainstorm

                                        Fear of love.  Restricting love causes obstacles in having a relationship get off the ground. Being hard in love.  Hard on your love. Disciplined love creates conflicts.  Detaching affection when stressed.  Inhibited from loving another co-cooperatively.  Testing lovers, delays a relationship.  Adjustments in serious love are important to make.  Fear of a relationship creates a block. Frustration over a love that can’t be had due to formal obligations or financial restrictions.

                                        She hid around corners and she hid under beds
                                        …She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
                                        With every bubble she sank with her drink
                                        And washed it away down the kitchen sink

                                        And I never wanted anything from you
                                        Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh
                                        Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head

                                        Thomas Dybdahl – Love Story

                                        honey i told you
                                        that these things never last
                                        and one of these days now
                                        you`ll start dreaming of the past

                                        when life was once too short for all the things we`d do and the shots we`d call
                                        and endless summer without a fall
                                        when promises were meant to keep
                                        and nighttime wasn`t meant for sleep
                                        a love story at it`s peak

                                        doesn`t it feel good
                                        to know that you`ve been loved
                                        and doesn`t it make you
                                        laugh when you think of

                                        the day when we all got lost on the old mans farm
                                        just trying to get across
                                        it was only then i knew what love was
                                        sunday mornings that never ended and hangovers that never mended
                                        a love story at it`s peak

                                        Thomas Dybdahl – It’s Always Been You

                                        sometimes it`s hard to see the change from where you stand
                                        you wake up in a pool of your own selfpity
                                        you try hard to lose whatever dignity she`s left you with
                                        but maybe it`s time to realise that you`re stained but not weak,
                                        calm but not sleak, she`s out of your league
                                        it`s always been you

                                        speak out your name and try to hold a thought for one damn minute
                                        you told me yourself you`d all appreciate a man of thought
                                        cause this is hightrade out, but you would ever have me do for something new
                                        cause in your own stream of thought betray is all you can, desperate man…
                                        it`s always been you

                                          There’s so much to say but I’ll just say this and hopefully it’s enough to chew on. :DVirgo Moon: Great memory, doesn’t forgot about feelings shared with others. Wants to eat healthily. When in an emotional crisis, instinct is to get analytical and calm which makes them appear cold and critical (they are just emotionally stressed). They are good with being objective about their emotions when they are calm. They can analyze how they feel by being detached and objective (REBT). Virgo Moon can worry a lot and suffer from Hypochondria when stressed. They like an organized and clean home or they are not able to produce as much or in wellness. They like to follow plans and when plans don’t work out, they find it hard to move forward. They like everything ‘perfect’ in an all or nothing sort of way. Work can weigh them down. They like to help out other people with their emotional distress. Virgo Moon possesses intuitive logic and many natural born psychics and psychologists have this Moon.Cancer Sun: Tribal. Have a love of family and home. Welcomes extended family and friends. Want everyone to be comfortable and feel welcomed. Hard to forget those they have loved in the past. Emotional eaters. They are psychic / intuitive and can figure out what’s going on with you. As a cardinal sign, Cancers will take charge but in a subtle and supportive manner. They make great leaders in anything related to the home and care-taking — cook, interior decorator, and nurse are a few examples.

                                          Cancer Sun with Virgo Moon? It’s good. By sign, these two stimulate each other (sextile) and are feminine and receptive signs (Water & Earth). They understand each other, can grow with each other, and can help each other deal with emotions that suddenly surface. If your Sun & Moon is in ‘orb’ than it’s a really beneficial connection (aspect) between the two.

                                          Some good career choices with this combination: Therapist, Human Resource Professional, Host, Baker, Hotel Management, Catering, Cashier.

                                            Natal & Synastry Astrology: The Magical Sex Aspect – Mars Square Neptune in Sex & Love – Part One

                                            ♂ ☐ ♆  I want the spiritual sex I’m forbidden to have.  My sexual power is held back and exists in my dreams. I am not telling others what I want.  I attempt to act on my dreams but it ends up being a fantasy.  Sexual fantasies are aggressive.  I’m sexually confused and frustrated.  I’m creating an illusion of what my intentions are.

                                            Mars Square Neptune is an astrological aspect that can show in a natal birth chart or it can be a combined energy that occurs between the native and another or others (synastry or compatibility chart).

                                            This aspect gives a hot tension and confusion vibe, when faced with sex and actions taken, to the native or relationship and any obstruction that keeps one away from one’s desires will add to the tension.  Largely a lack of self-understanding, of how one’s actions and desires affects self and others negatively, causes frustration, tension, and delays in getting one’s needs met Not taking responsibility for self or other even after the native / natives have been alerted to the problem, further causes problems.  Denial of actions and sexual desires is common-place.  The native or natives can lie to themselves or to each other — believing in what they want to believe – so they end up lying even if that’s not the intention.  This aspect feels like fall, Mars Pisces and Neptune Aries /Scorpio.

                                            Natal Mars Square Neptune

                                            1. Imagining sex that’s not likely to happen.
                                            2. Knowing that others don’t know what has hit them until it’s too late.
                                            3. Having aggressive or domination / submission sexual fantasies.  Denying sexual interests.
                                            4. Imaging what you will do but then never getting around to doing it.
                                            5. Wanting to do something that is, in reality, impossible but doing it anyway.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Still the outcome is not exactly what was expected and disappointment and guilt can set.  Making faulty decisions due to not thinking things through.  i.e. unplanned or poorly choosen pregnancy
                                            6. Wanting to cheat on your partner but rarely (if ever) actually doing it.
                                            7. Sexual confusion.  Uncertain of which sex attracts most.
                                            8. Feeling confused about psychic phenomena and how energetic connections with others work or if they are real.
                                            9. Knowing that a connection can be manipulated by self or other for unsaid or unknown purposes.
                                            10. Pretending or wanting to show interest where there is none.
                                            11. Invading or having your sexual privacy and rights invaded.
                                            12. Being afraid to ask for sex in a direct way.  Passive-aggressive advances.
                                            13. Attractions to movie stars, celebrities, clergy, gurus, prostitutes, mysterious and dangerous people, and so-on.

                                            Synastry Mars Square Neptune

                                            1. Sensing that something isn’t quite right in your relationship.  That there are ulterior motives.
                                            2. Feeling as if spiritual sex is an illusion that can’t be realized.
                                            3. Trust issues:  Not everything is said about what is wanted to be done.  Hiding the truth.
                                            4. Sexual deception.  Pretending to be sexually interested.  Sexual flirting doesn’t go anywhere.
                                            5. Skeptical that the relationship is real.  Feeling as if you may be deceived.
                                            6. Misreading the signals your person-of-interest gives you.
                                            7. Experience intense orgasm at a distance yet rarely in the presence of the lover.
                                            8. Doing a sexual activity that you didn’t want to have or agree to but not saying anything about it.
                                            9. A dangerous and unacceptable attraction with power imbalances.
                                            10. Using drugs to make your sex life into something it normally isn’t. (Viagra, Ecstasy, etc…)
                                            11. Dreaming your person of interest is the best sexual partner ever even though you have never had sex or intimate relations.
                                            12. Feeling jealous and possessive due to vagueness.
                                            13. Irresponsible impulses hurt those who do not know what’s happening. Not using protection, cheating, not advising of STD’s, etc.

                                            Mini Brainstorm

                                            Sexual dreams are blocked. Powerful actions are not taken responsibly. Sexual pictures cause discomfort. Psychic attacks disrupt.  Magical action (magician) is delayed.  Spiritual sex (guru) is restricted.  Deceptive action (spy) challenged.  Base desires thwart spiritual understanding.

Acts like Saturn. Others say: Wikipedia and WizardsNet adds crisis, difficult to integrate. Astrology3D says struggle of two forces at cross-purposes. Obstacles which can bring growth through concentrated effort.

                                              Natal & Synastry Astrology: The Solution to Venus Square Saturn in Love – Part Two

                                              The Venus Square Saturn Solution, Part Two

                                              Part One of Venus Square Saturn

                                              As I wrote this, I realize I know a lot of people with Venus Square Saturn natally and a lot of my  synastry (compatibility) with others causes one or both of us to have a hard Venus-Saturn aspect.  I wasn’t happy to write this since I’m such a Venusian and I believe restricting oneself from love is harmful to self and other.   So I felt sad. 🙁 I have Venus Trine Saturn natally and I have a tendency to stay in and attract long-term connections even when no physical connection is present.  Anyway, I”m going to tell you how I think you can help yourself or someone else get in touch with love.  For now, this is what it looks like…

                                              The Lesson

                                              The lesson of Venus Square Saturn is to be responsible, discipline enthusiasm, yet care about the feelings of others and yourself. Let the love grow slowly and deeply yet nurture it all the same.  Love, being in-love, and first love feelings can be delicious; however, if your or the other person’s heart is not open to love, it won’t happen or it will happen with a lot of tension.   Everything must come from a mature stateAvoid getting wrapped up in fears, restrictions, and responsibilities.  Explore challenges and don’t give up on the love no matter how challenging it appears.  Learn to adjust expectations and be prepared to love differently.

                                              Natal

                                              My solution for the natal manifestation of this aspect is for the native to be aware of the tendency to sabotage being in and finding love and to learn how to not withhold love from self or other, to balance the need for wanting to do the right thing with doing something that soothes and softens the spirit.  To be sure to let others know your fears but to also be willing to do something about it. To not just lean on the other to solve the problem.  Or perhaps just enjoy being single – it’s okay, really.

                                              The native with Venus square Saturn is trustworthy and will not enter a relationship they don’t plan on staying in.  This makes for a loyal and trusted companion.  However, having Venus Square Saturn can keep a native from having a complete and happy love- life that glitters with gold because it wants the gold from the start and love takes time to develop and sometimes, yes, it does end and the investment in the person is lost but not in yourself and your development.  You get to keep that!  The Square aspects ask you to keep it real but it still wants you to explore.

                                              Synastry

                                              Synastry-wise, if a couple is lucky or bold enough to get their relationship off the ground, ideally they will keep in mind the need for one or both parties to be responsible and remain true to their commitments and duties that society deems necessary, to not belittle their need and desire to get stuff done even in the face of a budding romance because life is full of tasks and duties irrespective of love feelings.  To help your lover accomplish their tasks and responsibilities so a path of love can be created. This aspect works well with couples who are not in a hurry or rush to materialize a relationship or encounter as it could take some time to get it off the ground in the first place.  Patience, my friends. Beautiful and enduring friendships are often the result of Venus Square Saturn when one or both natives do not have romantic chemistry or can not / do not want to leave or adjust their societal commitments.

                                              Now lets take a step back…  Venus is most at home with Taurus Trining Saturn’s Capricorn.  Libra (Venus) squares off with Capricorn (Saturn). Both Venus and Saturn here want their own way and they don’t want to understand each other. Venus says:  How can you NOT love me?  I’m beautiful, sweet, a piece of heaven and Saturn just looks at Venus and says:  You are vain, impractical, superficial, and don’t understand that money or love doesn’t grow on trees.   Yet when the sensual and practical Taurus Venus is channeled, a Venus Square Saturn contact can be rewarding if a) both parties or the native understand that practical things need to be taken care of first before love can bloom and to get on with it b) the couple /native ensures that the relationship or love life gets a dose of sugar too now and then.

                                              Finally serious love are key working concepts when loving and being loved with the Venus Square Saturn energy.  Therefore, ensuring there’s a feeling of commitment, before and during the inevitable fears, is essential for happiness and staving off the desire to parent, scold the partner for not wanting to focus on either the mundane or beautiful aspects of life is important too.  Working and loving, together as a team, when one with the strength nurtures the other with the challenge and vice versa, surely will bring success in the connection.

                                              Update:  April 8, 2011

                                              Recently, in an astrology group there was talk about Venus-Saturn in hard aspect and a comment was made about “High Expectations”.

                                              I kept thinking about the comment about “high expectations” because I was talking about this theme in my own life for a week or so as it relates to my Neptune Opposition Saturn (synchronicity)… 🙂

                                              Anyway, recently I took this “Narcissism” quiz http://www.0eb.com/ that’s been going around. I scored 12. Anyway, I observed that I had high expectations (entitlement) and a non-existent taking (exploitativeness).

                                              With the quiz results, I confirmed and further discovered that if I take more, my expectations will go down. Why? Because I would have already received my due through taking what I deserved at that time rather than *subconsciously* believe it would somehow come back to me at a later date.

                                              What does this have to do with Venus in hard aspect to Saturn or High Expectations? Well, hubby and I were chatting (we have Mercury Sextile Uranus in synastry — yay!!) about an unrelated aspect and it got me thinking…

                                              Possibly a reason why the native with Venus-Saturn in hard aspect has *high expectations* is that they either “give too much love” or “don’t take / receive any” and maybe vacillate between the two with an opposition.

                                              So if the native would just start TAKING (if they are too Venus) love without thinking they deserve it, are worthy of it, or whatever AND / OR RELEASE (if they are too Saturn) what they give… their *expectations* will lower because they will get their needs for affection and esteem met “then and there” without feeling used or under-appreciated.

                                              What I call “conscious giving and taking” rather than “unconditional love” that we are *told* to do but does not work for everyone because we all have different karma or stuff we are working out.

                                              And that’s one more solution or *strategy* for Venus-Saturn in hard aspect.

                                              Am I ever going to fall-in-love or be with the one I love if I/we have Venus Square Saturn?

                                              While I’m calling the Venus Square Saturn The Romeo & Juliet Aspect for a reason, keep in mind or know that there are other aspects in a chart that can alleviate or neutralize its effect.  Then again there are other aspects that can further weaken this challenging aspect too.  Also there are reasons for this aspect existing in the first place and it’s just a test.  You are meant to jump the hurdle successfully and reap the fruits of your labour.  It’s just that you need to want it and to work for it.  But if you have always sucked or exhausted with studying and failed tests because of that, this aspect isn’t going to be kind to you.

                                                Astrology: The Jucy Method of Aspect Delineation (JMAD) – Introduction to Interpreting Aspects – Step #1

                                                When I told Astrology by Kingsley that I would be calling my method of delineating aspects:  The Jucy Method of Aspect Delineation, he promptly retorted with “The JMAD“! <3

                                                The JMAD is my way of interpreting the essence and influence of an astrological aspect whether that be related to a natal (birth), synastry (compatibility between two or more people), composite (the purpose of the relationship), solar return (month by month predictions for the upcoming year from your birthday on), etc..

                                                Aspect delineation is one small step of many steps to synthesize and interpret a chart or horoscope — chart delineation.  Chart delineation, reading your chart, is different from aspect delineation.

                                                Step #1

                                                To start delineating know what the planets, signs, houses, and aspects represent and their attributes.

                                                1. Know and understand astrological aspects.  The aspects are the WHY or rather two or more planets getting together (for or against). This conversation, fight, or love-in, in the sky, is about us and what the big Dudes want us to do.  Aspects also connect two or more planets and tell us a lot about the chemistry created in a person, people, event, and so-on.
                                                2. Basic delineation: As per reading on Michael Starr’s website, “the planets are WHAT energy needs to be expressed or understood, a psychological function or objective.”  Also, to me, the planets make plans for us to carry out.
                                                3. Intermediate delineation: As Michael Starr says, “the signs are HOW it manifests as drives or personal style, its method or mode of operation, or strategy. “Also, to me, this is the style or way in which the plans are carried out.  If a sign is in fall of a planet, they might not do a very good job at carrying out the plans of that planet.  However, if the sign is in domicile (at home), it will carry out the plans with ease and great skill.
                                                4. Advanced delineation:  Again, as Michael Starr says, “the houses are WHERE it manifests as situations or events.  Its area of application, or its terrain.” Also, to me, the houses indicate what area the planet what’s its plans to be carried out.  The houses represents activities and areas of interest.

                                                Intermediate to Advanced Tip

                                                One of the things I think is important, for any consultant or serious student of astrology to do, is to create their very own book on delineated aspects minus the house and sign as that would likely be too much to tackle in even one lifetime.  Yes, it does take a lot of work and time to create your own list of basic delineated aspects, but it’s well worth it.   I also suggest this to students and professionals of tarot.

                                                  Intro & Step 1 | 3 | 4

                                                  The Jucy Method of Aspect Delineation (JMAD) is my way of interpreting the essence and influence of an astrological aspect whether that be related to a natal (birth), synastry (compatibility between two or more people), composite (the purpose of the relationship), solar return (month by month predictions for the upcoming year from your birthday on), etc..

                                                  Aspect delineation is one small step of many steps to synthesize and interpret a chart or horoscope — chart delineation. Chart delineation, reading your chart, is different from aspect delineation.

                                                  Step #2

                                                  Delineation of planets aspecting each other is like creating a real-life story or short hand message from an astrological term such as Venus Square Neptune which is the planet Venus in contact with Neptune by way of a square.

                                                  How to do it

                                                  The following is a simple way to delineate / read an aspect.

                                                  Start with the planet furthest away (from outer to inner planets); then determine the contact /aspect type (i.e. Square); followed by the activated planet (from inner to outer planets). It’s like reading Arabic right to left.

                                                  Example

                                                  We will read the meaning behind the term: Venus Square Neptune.

                                                  Neptune is furthest away (outer planet) so we will look at that planet first.

                                                  Like every word, there is a longer meaning or other words that can be used in its place to get a stronger connection to the words meaning.

                                                  Keywords for Neptune –> Dreams, illusions, stupors, letting go, dissolution, disillusionment, disappointment, cheating, idealizing, metaphysical, drunken, magic, thirsty, salt water, spiritual, quietness, enchanting, retreat, spas, trance, chaos, craziness, smoke & mirrors, glamorizing, subconscious, intangible, temptation, sacrifice, martyr, suffering, confusion, emotions, delusions, insincerity, hypnotic, boundless, altered reality, photographic, filmography, subversions, devotion, psychic, fantasy, deception, ghosts, visions, visionary, abstraction, secrets, the hidden, invisible, anesthetics, sponging, abuse, the psyche, alcohol, drugs, running away, disorder, silence, intoxication, unemployment, giving, steamy, blue & green, indulgence, gas, fog, merging, mystery, veil, the divine, addictions, neuroses, drowning, betrayal, evasion, helpless, acceptance, higher states of consciousness, Kundalini, escapism, vulnerability, weakness, transcendence, inspiration, imagination, the muse, hallucination, sleepiness, mysticism, secret society, subtlety, mystical creatures, otherworldly, artistry, acting, make-believe, poison, fakery, colour

                                                  Then we look at the Contact Type which is a Square.

                                                  Keywords for Square –> Challenged, blocked, tension, discomfort, conflict, needed adjustments, stubborn, irregular, hang-up, restrain, restrict, shut-off, obstruct, thwart, pressure, stress, struggle

                                                  Then finally we take a look at Venus, the activated and inner planet.

                                                  Keywords for Venus –> Love, affection, art, balance, sensuality, beauty, softness, receptivity, femininity, passivity, happiness, peace, contentment, nature, earthly pleasures, idealizing, brown & pink, tradition, co-operation, indulgence, service, devoted, the muse, kindness, compassion

                                                  Connecting Everything

                                                  By choosing a keyword representing each planet and quality of connection (i.e. Square), for Venus Square Neptune we could say it can mean:

                                                  • Fog (Neptune) stresses (square) love (venus). i.e. Not being able to see clearly causes one to be stressed about their love.
                                                  • Dreams (Neptune) challenge (square) beauty (venus). i.e. The ideal beauty in one’s mind is not realized.
                                                  • Deception (Neptune) obstructs (square) happiness (venus).  i.e. Saying things that are untrue does not cause genuine happiness.

                                                  Intermediate to Advanced

                                                  When you have the hang of it, it can also be read from left to right; however, the best and most natural way to synthesize is whichever order comes naturally.  Eventually interpreting aspects becomes instantaneous via intuition.

                                                  • Created art (Venus) is not (Square) spiritual (Neptune) enough (Square).
                                                  • Hang-up’s (Square) cause discomfort (Square) and confusion (Neptune) when attempting to be affectionate (Venus).
                                                  • An addiction to drugs (Neptune) is a stubborn (Square) indulgence (Neptune) that causes distress (Square) in friendships and relationships (Venus).

                                                  Intuition

                                                  Intuition is a combination of historical (empirical) data, deep and heightened observation and an ability to cut through the thickness of surface reality. Intuition is like a slow motion machine that captures data instantaneously and hits you like a ton of bricks. Intuition is a knowing, a sensing that is beyond the conscious understanding — a gut feeling. Intuition is not pseudo-science.

                                                    Astrology: The Jucy Method of Aspect Delineation (JMAD) – Dignities & Co-Rulers – Step #3

                                                    Intro & Step 1 | Step 2 | Step 4

                                                    The Jucy Method of Aspect Delineation (JMAD) is my way of interpreting the essence and influence of an astrological aspect whether that be related to a natal (birth), synastry (compatibility between two or more people), composite (the purpose of the relationship), solar return (month by month predictions for the upcoming year from your birthday on), etc..

                                                    Aspect delineation is one small step of many steps to synthesize and interpret a chart or horoscope — chart delineation. Chart delineation, reading your chart, is different from aspect delineation.

                                                    Step #3

                                                    Co-Rulers

                                                    Planets rule one or two signs and in the case of ruling two, one sign is more at home than the other.  In fact, I would say one of the signs are a cherished guest.  All signs have their own home except for two, Virgo and Libra.

                                                    If the guest tells the host what to do it’s GAME OVER.  So when delineating decide whether the guest or host is calling the shots.

                                                    The JMAD uses the Home / Domicile sign for purposes of initial delineation.

                                                    Know and understand the Home signs in each planet.

                                                    Table of Home (H) and Guest (G) signs.  Guest means that another planet is a better fit for the secondary sign, if shown.  To me the protoplanet and asteroid, Vesta rules Virgo and Juno rules Libra.

                                                      The JMAD Swap.

                                                      First, we go back to Rule #3 to ensure we have an understanding of signs in domicile…

                                                      Table of Essential Dignities for signs in Domicile only

                                                      from Wikipedia

                                                      Sign Domicile
                                                      Aries Mars
                                                      Taurus Venus
                                                      Gemini Mercury
                                                      Cancer Moon
                                                      Leo Sun
                                                      Virgo Mercury
                                                      Libra Venus
                                                      Scorpio Pluto, Mars
                                                      Sagittarius Jupiter
                                                      Capricorn Saturn
                                                      Aquarius Uranus, Saturn
                                                      Pisces Neptune, Jupiter

                                                      The Premise

                                                      Second, we look at how The JMAD Swap works for these aspects, as examples:  Moon-Pluto | Sun-Saturn | Mars-Saturn | Mars-Neptune | Moon-Saturn | Venus-Neptune | Mars-Pluto

                                                      Moon-Pluto

                                                      Using Moon-Pluto aspecting each other, it basically goes like this: The domicile planet for Pluto is Scorpio and the domicile planet for Moon is Cancer. With The JMAD Swap, the aspect then reads as Moon Scorpio and Pluto Cancer. These two planet/sign combination can be read “alone” or “together” to get an IMMEDIATE feel for the aspect.

                                                      The question to ask yourself then becomes: What are the attributes of Moon Scorpio? What are the attributes of Pluto Cancer? Together or separately it will tell you the story of Moon-Pluto…

                                                      Examples…
                                                      Moon Scorpio — Hidden emotions. Secret needs. Jealous feelings.
                                                      Pluto Cancer — Family power. Destructive family. Compulsive eating.
                                                      Together — Destructive family causes hiding of emotions and needs. Food is used as a way to deal with the intense feelings of others wanting to possess self. Food becomes a way to gain back control.

                                                      Add a square to Moon-Pluto, get this: Moon Square Pluto — Hidden emotions causes conflict. Add a trine to Moon-Pluto — Hidden emotions expand opportunity.

                                                      A Moon Trine Pluto person may gain employment as a therapist because they are able to uncover the emotional depth that clients have buried.

                                                      Breaking Down The Method Further

                                                      Sun-Saturn

                                                      Capricorn is ruled by Saturn.  Saturn also rules Aquarius. Leo is ruled by the Sun only.
                                                      Swapping or flipping the signs we get: Sun Capricorn or Aquarius and Saturn Leo

                                                      This is where traditional vs. modern rulerships enters.
                                                      In my opinion, the first sign is more at home than the second sign listed in the table of essential dignities. The FIRST sign listed in the table is the best fit.  And planets for Virgo and Libra have not been found yet.

                                                      Since Capricorn is the first listed sign for Saturn, I’ll choose that.
                                                      Therefore a Sun-Saturn aspect would have the vibe of Sun Capricorn and Saturn Leo.

                                                      A standard remark about Sun-Saturn is depression.  When we use The JMAD Swap method we can get an understanding that the Sun in Capricorn in its shadow side can get a bit gloomy and the joy and warmth of Leo can get restricted by Saturn.

                                                      Mars- Saturn

                                                      As discussed in Rule #2, more emphasis can be placed on how the outer planet (or furthest planet) affects the inner planet (or closer planet) when delineating.

                                                      Mars is ruled by Aries AND Scorpio, Saturn by Capricorn and Aquarius.  Depending on what is sought:  actions or sex,  decide whether to use Aries or Scorpio or you could use both — whichever resonates more for you. So we could have, for example, Saturn Scorpio and Mars Aquarius or Saturn Aries and Mars Capricorn and both create a “square” vibe

                                                      Action & Sex Example #1: Mars Capricorn and Saturn Aries

                                                      As per above, Mars-Saturn can mean:

                                                      • Getting things done slowly.
                                                      • Dominating sexually over time.

                                                      Action & Sex Example #2: Mars Aquarius and Saturn Scorpio

                                                      • Joking about the lack of information to do one’s job thoroughly.
                                                      • Open minded, through conversation, about sexual tastes.

                                                      Mars-Neptune

                                                      Mars is ruled by Aries AND Scorpio, Neptune by Pisces only.  Depending on what is sought:  actions or sex,  decide whether to use Aries or Scorpio or you could use both — whichever resonates more for you.

                                                      Action & Sex Example #1: Mars Pisces and Neptune Aries

                                                      As per above, Mars-Neptune can mean:

                                                      • Getting things done quickly causes confusion.
                                                      • Confusing self or other in regards to sexual aggression.

                                                      Action & Sex Example #2: Mars Pisces and Neptune Scorpio

                                                      • Psychic feeling doesn’t need live action to be taken.
                                                      • Being sexually submissive in a mysterious and unknown environment.

                                                      If we add a square in, we might get this for example #2:

                                                      • Psychic feeling inhibits physical action.
                                                      • Being sexually submissive in a mysterious and unknown environment is frustrating.

                                                      If we add a trine in, we might get this:

                                                      • Letting psychic feelings get things done for you.
                                                      • Being sexually submissive in a mysterious and unknown environment offers opportunity.

                                                      Mars Square Neptune

                                                      This can become: Mars Pisces, Neptune Aries
                                                      A few examples of delineating this aspect: magical action (magician), spiritual sex (guru), and deceptive action (spy). There’s many other ways to look at that… just examples…

                                                      Add an aspect.  Lets choose the square again.
                                                      Mars Square Neptune would be Magical action causes tension….

                                                      The key to The JMAD Flip is to use the understanding of what you know about a sign in a planet and then glean immediate insight about what an aspect might mean.

                                                      What’s Mars Pisces about? and What’s Neptune Aries about?

                                                      • Remember, we can meditate, contemplate, or sit with just “one” of the Planets and Signs.  So for a Mars-Saturn aspect, we could look at Mars Capricorn OR Saturn Scorpio to get a feel for a basic Mars-Saturn influence.
                                                      • Regarding the “aspect contact type“: a Square, Opposition, Sesquiquadrate aspect would be a Shadow influence, while a Trine, Sextile could be a Light influence and Conjunct a Neutral influence.
                                                      • Use the shadow traits for disharmonious aspects and light traits for harmonious aspects to get an immediate sense of what the aspect might offer.

                                                        Astrology: Charlie Sheen, Mars Square Neptune, & Seeing the Gift

                                                        I responded to a blog post about Charlie Sheen, Mars Square Neptune, and looking at traditionally considered “challenging” aspects as gifts…

                                                        (abridged response…)

                                                        Hi Brandi!!

                                                        Many people, including astrologers, are quick to point out the flaws but not focus on the gifts of challenging aspects, signs, traits.

                                                        With The JMAD Swap technique, let me look at your Mars-Neptune aspect.
                                                        Mars becomes Mars Pisces and Neptune becomes Neptune Aries.

                                                        Magical action.  Magical sex.  Active imagination.  Aggressive addictions.  Drugged action. Dissolving self.  Soft action. Healing innovations. Medicine man or woman: A healer.

                                                        When we add the square we are getting obstacles, tension, stress, etc.

                                                        Here’s one possible upside: I believe a Healer (Mars-Neptune) is an awesome profession/skill and when you have it in square, you understand people’s pain better.  You know “how” to heal in a very primal and enlightened way.  However, the square will delay opportunities for you to do it.  It will test your knowledge of healing and maybe put you into situations that will help you “get” healing better so you can go out and heal others. 🙂  Our pain becomes healing.

                                                        On my blog, I talk about turning Squares into Trines.  More than anything this helps the individual “ease into” whatever they want to do without trouble. 🙂  You may be already doing this without knowing it…

                                                        Projection (as maybe be known) often happens in the axis of the 1fst and 7th as well as the 6th and 12th houses:  Do you have Mars or Neptune in any of those houses?  My Mars is in the 7th *ugh*…

                                                        (After having read beyond your first two paragraphs…)

                                                        Thank you for explaining how Mars Square Neptune affects you.  I was going to ask you that but you see, I wrote everything above after I read the second paragraph.  So Yes! Your pain heals others. 🙂  I honour you for that.  You are seen.  You have been heard.

                                                        btw, I have Neptune Scorpio in the 10th but not in aspect to Mars.  I am a practicing psychic (and astrologer) who is also hyper-sensitive.

                                                        Yes, people are envious of Charlie Sheen.  He hasn’t “played nice” and if you don’t, society is going to push you down or attempt to do so!  They feel he is pushing his success [and greatness] into their face.  I’m personally unaffected by that. 🙂 Oddly, like you, I “get” him even if I do not agree with all his actions. I’m almost certain he also “worked crazy hard” for his blessings and he is naturally gifted in mental drama (look at his 5th house stellium in Virgo).  He IS beyond most people who come into contact with him.  He IS different.  He IS misunderstood.  And he needs to find his tribe.  *grin*

                                                        Hope your day is wonderful!
                                                        Much love <3,

                                                            Part One: An Introduction to the 7th House, Seventh House Astrology Series

                                                            About the 7th House.

                                                            • Ruled by Venus / Juno
                                                            • House Axis: 1 /7  Polarity: Aries Mars Opposes Libra Venus. The JMAD Swap: Venus Aries / Mars Libra requires awareness, a walk in the other person’s shoes, and togetherness to feel / be whole.
                                                            • Everyone has 7th house themes. This is the house of Self through OTHER or when house ownership is taken, it can be viewed as house of Other through SELF .
                                                            • Seventh House: You, Other, us. First House: Me, Self, I.  Not owning house themes: Self through other – Projected – e.g. I learn about me through you.  You tell me what’s going on.  My actions are seen through your actions.  If I do this, you have done this.  Owning house themes: Other through self  – Reflective – e.g. I learn about you through me. I tell you what’s going on. If you do this, I have done this.
                                                            • House Themes: Giving & receiving, projection & ownership of self, self & other development, committed & withdrawn relationships, conflicts & co-operation, contracts & obligations, and finally attraction & retraction.
                                                            • 1/7 Axis Themes: Is it you or me? Mirror reflection. Me vs. We / Us ~ Independence vs. Co-dependence /Interdependence ~ Individual vs. Partner ~ Separate vs.  Together ~
                                                            • When it’s inconvenient or doesn’t suit needs of self or other, the 7th house often makes attempts to deny house themes.

                                                            7th House Themes

                                                            • House of Committed & Withdrawn Relationships: Anyone you intently focus upon and who requires serious and committed attention. Examples:  Romantic, husband-wife, girlfriend-boyfriend, family, parent-child, best friends, business, employer / employee, client-service provider, doctor-patient, co-workers, declared enemies, competitors, adversaries, and opponents.
                                                            • House of Contracts  & Obligations: Agreements drawn up with those you have a committed relationship.  Give & take.  Just and fair resolutions.
                                                            • House of Projection & Ownership: Here’s where whatever you think other is doing or has done, you are also of similar action and temperament for better or worse.  Recognizing we possess what we get is ownership of house themes. The shadow “projected” side is the “opposition” sign and #1 House of Self. We often project the stuff we don’t like about ourselves onto others.  On the flip-side, we recognize what do we like and inspire others with
                                                            • House of Giving & Getting: Gifts.  New gifts.  Re-gifted gifts. Here you will get things from people and give things to people.  Sometimes the gift is a stinker. Serious giving and taking that’s ultimately transformational and intense (the 8th).
                                                            • House of Attraction & Retraction:  Marriage vs. Divorce.  Whatever was given can be taken back, just as quickly.  Example.  Sun in the 7th gives confidence boosts; however, it can easily deflate other or stop the boosts altogether if the Sun is disrespected or goes unappreciated, reciprocated.  One positive 7th house action is reciprocation. If you don’t get it, don’t give it.  And if you give it, make sure you get it.  Finding a balance between give & take.
                                                            • House of Conflict & Co-operation: Getting or obstructing needs being met.  Negotiating vs. Fighting. Enemies developed through competitive or in-your-face action.
                                                            • House of Domination and Submission: Situated between the sextiled and opportunity filled connection of houses 6 (Virgo, submission) and 8 (Scorpio, domination), themes within the 7th can touch upon being used and using. In its ideal — equality.
                                                            • House of Self & Other Development:  Growing of self and other through partnership. Your self-development and other paves the way to the 8th house “ends and starts”, new beginnings.

Placidus: Leo Sun Conjunct Mars in the 7th.  My 7th house cusp is Cancer.  No planets in the first.  Intercepted AC so I would like to say I have a bit of an Aquarius rising as well – a Double Ascendant (Cap & Aqua), if you will.  My POF is Aquarius. Koch gives me Aqua on the 2nd.
