2012 Dark Night Winter Moons - Full and New

Make your Magic, M’Lady!

Friday Dec 28, 2:21 AM Pacific, FULL Moon at 7 Cancer 06

Christmas is building up to this Full Moon, the Moon in her own sign Cancer! Takes that kind of double power to oppose the Sun AND Pluto, Pluto a formidable planet! The Sun is just two degrees from Pluto at 9 degrees Capricorn. Serious mojo! Sun/Pluto combinations are the number one factor in the most wealthy US corporate charts! Super wealth, fame, are possible. Death is possible. In between, we have relationship matters, money, sex, power plays. We have loyal unions ’til death do us part, or trickery and cheating that saddens the Spirit. Full Moon oppositions give a stand apart, stand back potential that allows us to be less entangled so we can see what’s really happening. Breathing space can be a good thing, a relief, can relax. Sometimes we are surprised, deeply pleased, there is a secret that played into things, a loving intent, far more than we ever thought possible. Time to clean up old bitter fears, love and be loved. The Moon in Cancer loves no matter what, unless badly hurt, wants to take it home. Both Cancer and Capricorn are Traditional. The fireplace, the cabin with trees, may be a good choice over the holiday week. Capricorn loves the mountains, a bit of snow would be lovely! Capricorns, leave the work alone a few days, take some genuine time off.

Moon is one degree semi sextile Jupiter in Gemini! Let’s talk about family, where we are going to live, go to school. Would love to hear about lineage, where we came from. With Sun/Pluto in thrifty guardian Capricorn, the renovation better be in line with budget, be a good deal, not take too much time. What about prefab, or an eco home? Is it big enough? Moon is part artist, Jupiter is story teller! Let’s do some painting, photography to illustrate! Let’s get women and children to choose some of the chapters! If it brings up hidden or fearful emotions, grief, let’s stand by each other, make a safe place together, gently do some good things to point to a better future.

The Capricorn theme is spoken a second way by the Moon trine Saturn, the planet of Capricorn. The Pluto theme is repeated because Saturn is in Scopio, Pluto’s sign. Saturn sextile Pluto just made their exact aspect two days before, on the 26th. Saturn’s profound job is to harness Pluto’s power in a good way. Since Jupiter is inconjunct, there has to be good reason, and a meaningful destination. Pluto can be extreme, mercilessly taunting Death! You would think God would get ’em for being so audacious, but no, they thumb their noses and keep right on going! It can be compulsive and obsessive, true, but, the talent is undeniable. They usually win, and, when younger, if they screw up, heal miraculously quickly! Saturn can focus the drive in the right direction, and with impeccable timing produce sublime results! Throw the Moon in here and the intuition increases their chances. A woman, child, person of childlike Spirit, may save the day! Let it be!

Friday Jan 11, 11:44 AM Pacific (like those numbers?), NEW Moon at 21 Capricorn 46

YES! Our first Moon of 2013, the next 26,000 years! Capricorn is our starting sign of the next 26,000 years, the Sign it started with Dec 21, 2012! This is a daytime Moon with a stellium of FIVE PLANETS IN CAPRICORN! Venus, Pluto, Mercury, Sun and Moon are doing us proud! Honor, reverence, surrender. Do the good work of your life, be what you were here to be. Venus loves her way along, makes superior appraisals. Pluto clears debris and obstructions, recycling when can. Mercury offers a hand, sometimes barks orders, communicates necessities. Sun and Moon merge the expression of nurturing and professionalism, child and adult. Mentoring is a gift.

Not linked specifically to the Moon, but in the chart of the moment, Venus is making a 3 degree Magi symmetrical pattern called a Mighty Green Fortress! Really, I don’t know where they get their names, but I love them! It is formed by a baseline inconjunct, in this case, Venus with Jupiter – can’t entirely decide what I want. Venus squares Uranus, don’t get too close, and Jupiter squares Neptune and Chiron, we are not going the same direction, really. Venus sextiles Neptune and Chiron, I love you anyway, let’s play Dr. Jupiter Gemini sextiles Uranus Aries, I don’t care where we go, let’s just GO! Yippee! Neptune/Chiron Pisces semi sextile Uranus Aries – don’t mind if I do, bored, lead the way. That’s just one line of thinking. I think it’s about what risks to take – is it possible, do you believe enough? Love and trust yourself.

Adam Lanza Shooting  - Sad and frightened Children

Terribly sad, horrified.  You have likely heard by now of Adam Lanza’s assault.  He shot 20 children, 6 adults – including his Mother, and himself.  There is no greater sorrow than losing your children.  Important matters raised are gun control, mental illness and its care, communications and intervention, our personal responsibility.  Astrologically, we have been having a difficult aspect related to this kind of event, Uranus square Pluto, since 2010, that continues through March 2015.  There are uncomfortable things we must learn about and take care of.  Especially at this time before the Mayan Alignment Portal, Christmas and New Year, this event is such a reminder. Let there be Peace on Earth, and let it begin with Me.

First, here is Adam Lanza’s birth chart.

Adam Lanza Astology Birth Chart, born April 22, 1992.

We don’t have a birth time for Adam,
so this is a Sun on the Ascendant, Solar Houses chart.
The chart is calculated for Noon to get median positions for the Planets.

Adam has what the Magi astrologers call a ‘Flying Eagle’ symmetrical formation – from Jupiter, it links to a Grand Earth Trine to the Moon and Sun (the blue triangle).  The Flying Eagle starts there at the bottom of the chart, the short green line, the two blue lines and two purple lines extending upward into the chart, they are linked by the red line, a square between the North Node and Mercury.  This aspect pattern has mixed effects.  The trines, Jupiter to North Node, and Chiron to Mercury, bring blessings of the ability to learn.  Yet the inconjuncts, the purple lines, Jupiter to Mercury, and Chiron to the North Node, bring stresses and adjustments, an unsurety of where you stand, always having to be on your toes.

The Grand Trine  In this case, Jupiter in Virgo can be hugely self-critical, the Moon in Capricorn can be susceptible to emotional depression.  It is thought not to be empathetic, and cold to receiving nurturing, or thinks their Mother is cold.  Sun in Taurus dislikes being pushed or disturbed, so it can be a closed system.  Jupiter in Virgo can also be well studied, so deems itself superior.  What could anyone else say to help, yet there is pain.  Mercury and Venus in Aries need to be independent, so again, tough to reach this person.

There are three seriously difficult aspects.  They are of a type that I would not recommend marriage with this person, likely the person would never marry.

  1. Sun square Chiron in Sun’s sign Leo – possible unhappy marriage, difficulties with sense of personal woundedness.
  2. Venus square his Uranus conjunct Neptune exact at 18 degrees – with Uranus, unstable, needs for freedom, especially with Venus in Aries of independence, not a natural togetherness placement for Venus.  With Neptune, possible overwhelming, even addictive fears, real or imagined, triggering anger.  Mercury in Aries can have a hair trigger temper, completely embarrassing to Capricorn Moon, and to Pluto in its own sign Scorpio, that doesn’t like to show its hand.   With Saturn in Aquarius closely related to the pattern at 17 degrees, feelings of being trapped, not just by others, but by oneself.
  3. Saturn square Pluto – One of the most difficult aspects for anyone.  At worst, there can be sexual abuse, a deep sense of impotency, hatreds.  With Mars, even though in gentle Pisces, it is still a planet of anger, action and guns.  It’s trine with Pluto, extremes and death, the anger came out in a lethal tsunami.

Moon of Mother in Capricorn, and Saturn of Father in Aquarius, there were likely feelings of super controlling on one hand, abandonment on the other, from both parents.  So all alone.

Here is the chart of the shooting.

Adam Lanza Shooting Astrology Chart

Calculated for the 911 Call

Many times I find a major event happens just after triggering planets activate the points.  The Moon has just activated the Jupiter Yod with Saturn and Pluto.  Jupiter maximizes principles a person has, Saturn brings down the hammers, Pluto goes to extremes of retribution, even Death.  The Capricorn Moon, emotions, just crossed over Pluto, perhaps an extreme of depression, that Capricorn is susceptible to.  The Moon had also triggered the Uranus square Pluto, erratic, extreme ups and downs.  When Uranus isn’t genius, it can be considered a loner, sometimes insane.

Mercury and Jupiter are opposite, exaggerating disassociated thinking. They are also in each other’s signs, which may have the effect of merging too many thoughts, Jupiter in Gemini, trillions, and Mercury in Sagittarius, hard to focus, won’t stop. Overwhelmed.

The chart Ascendant is at a degree of ending, 29 degrees, Capricorn. What was done, was done. Abrupt, concise, no fixing it.

Comparison graph of Adam’s birth chart
and the time of the shooting. 

Adam’s natal planets below are down the left of the graph, the shooting planets across the top of the graph.

Adam Lanza  Astrology - Birth Chart Compared with Shooting Chart

We don’t have Adam’s birth time,
so the Moon’s degree may vary,
ignore his house placements, do not use his ASC, MC aspects.

Looking at planets in close active degree connections with each other, there are several potent activators.

Transiting planets Uranus and Pluto are strongly likely activating Adam’s Moon and are activating Adam’s Mercury.  Moon is emotional and Mercury is logical.  They are likely at odds in his birth chart, one could be cold and calculating, the other hot, maybe angry, definitely impetuous!

Uranus and Mercury were both at the degree of Adam’s Jupiter, both were challenging his principles, bringing criticism of himself, him of others, to the fore.

Uranus conjunct Adam’s Mercury in Aries, at the SAME DEGREE! Totally erratic radical angry thinking, wanting to shock! This would only happen once every 84 years, for some people not in their lifetime!

It is likely that the transiting Moon in Capricorn, conjunct Adam’s natal Moon in Capricorn was the trigger of the event.  The Moon is illogical, Lunar, hence, lunacy.  In Capricorn, feelings can be internalized to the point of implosion, a breaking point.  It feels trapped, nowhere to go, no one to listen, to understand.  It feels failed, and is shamed beyond understanding.  They say depression is anger turned inward.  There can come a point when it all doesn’t fit anymore.  If the ingrained chronic condition is to conceal forbidden feelings, it can go unconscious, just loses it.  I don’t know if you can imagine what pain this might be.  The Moon had just crossed Pluto, planet of extremes and intensity, and Death.
________________________________________________________________

If any of you have these planetary placements, PLEASE, do not think that these are the only expressions of their energy.  Many of us have difficult aspects, and we live well with them everyday, learning, growing, yes, some errors.  If you do think you could use some help, confide with someone you trust, who is experienced with life, who is encouraging and celebrates you!

If you have children, please discuss school security measures.  Most importantly, let them talk, lovingly assure them, help them feel safe.  Know they will regress a bit if they are scared.  Give, let, the time it takes.  Know who your children are with.  If you have doubts, err on the side of protection.

May I encourage you all to BE with young people? Don’t let them be alone, especially the quiet or intimidating ones.  Don’t let them be alone after school.  Join after school programs.  Spend time with them doing good things they enjoy to build their confidence.  Give them a safe place, to be in, to talk, be heard without judgment.  Assure their fears.  Tell them out loud what you love about them.  Every day.  Art, sports, nature, are a few ways to engage them.  If you don’t know how to do these things, learn yourself.  Take a parenting class, communications workshop.  If either you or your beloved children need counseling, get it, for BOTH of you.  It takes mutual understanding, no blame.  See your priest, pastor, rabbi.  Whatever it takes.  Gather your courage and love; it will be worth the reward.

The sad news came in this evening, Feb 11, 2012, Whitney Houston, extraordinary woman, singer, has passed at 48. My heart is sad at her difficult times and now her passing.

Whitney Houston, August 9, 1963 Leo

For those of you interested in the Astro*Logical charts, we do have her birth time, so her birth chart is accurate. She was an Aug 9 Sun/Venus Leo with Moon/Jupiter in Aries, Pisces Ascendant. Sun/Venus is beauty and blessings, self esteem issues, indulgences. Moon/Jupiter Aries can go a long way from home, have fame for being the first, #1, a leader. Pisces is an artist, a musician.

Written in Wikipedia, one of her accomplishments was ‘In October 1994, Houston attended and performed at a state dinner in the White House honoring newly elected South African president Nelson Mandela. At the end of her world tour, Houston performed three concerts in South Africa to honor President Mandela, playing to over 200,000 people. This would make the singer the first major musician to visit the newly unified and apartheid free nation following Mandela’s winning election. The concert was broadcast live on HBO with funds of the concerts being donated to various charities in South Africa. The event was considered the nation’s “biggest media event since the inauguration of Nelson Mandela.” Please see her natal chart below.’

Whitney Houston, August 9, 1963, Newark NJ, 8:55 PM

Technical note: Whitney’s death was recorded as at 4 PM after 20 minutes of CPR. She was found unresponsive at 3:30 PM, having been in the bathroom for over an hour. Her death occurred sometime in that previous hour. In the chart below, I used the mid of that hour, 3 PM, for her death chart, to see the possibilities. No matter what time you use, from 2:30 to 3:30, the death chart is Cancer/Capricorn Ascendant/Descendant, with Sun in its’ 8th house. Sun 8 is commonly death at one’s own doing.

Whitney Houston's AstroLogical Birth and Death Charts

At this time of her passing, there are two exact to-the-degree major difficult aspects formed by outer Planets. Outer planet events have long-term meaning and effect. 1) Pluto, planet of Death, is squaring her natal Mars, life force, in Libra, in her Libra house. Choices could have been out of balance, an impetuous slip made, perhaps a loss of attention mattered. It was speculated she ODed after several days of intense partying. More will come to light in the following days.

2) In the second outer planet hard aspect, Chiron in Pisces is within 6 minutes, just a fraction of a degree from opposition her Uranus, and very close to her Ascendant from the 12th house of passing of the Spirit. In old mythology, Chiron is the wounded healer/teacher. Uranus is sudden change, in this case, in her health house, in the health sign Virgo. She may have been feeling a loss of friendships as well. And transiting Uranus was inconjunct her natal Uranus, the planet of friendships and community, but also supreme lonliness at times. In so many ways, Whitney was like rarified air – her race, her voice, her fame. There’s just not that many people to talk with at that level, and the ones you know, know you too well.

Dramatically, the Moon is 16 Libra, opposite Whitney’s natal Moon at 17 Aries, Jupiter 19 Aries. It was kind of like a ‘Full Moon’ of Moons. She could have felt her luck had run out, that the Self she most wanted to be was lost, unconnected. Sometimes Lunar disturbances make us lose our memory. Perhaps she didn’t think of her child or she thought her child would never love her the way she wanted to be loved by her child, or her child didn’t need her anymore and would be ok. And, there are times when chemical collisions and certain feelings are more than the rational mind can contain. We don’t think at all.

There are some very beautiful aspects.  Pluto in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Taurus, are making a Grand Earth Trine with her Uranus/Mercury/Pluto stellium in Virgo! Uranus, apparently is the key, being in both the difficult aspect, and tying to the favorable Grand Trine as well. Uranus/Mercury indicate her unique voice, exquisite singing. Pluto adds a control and perfection to the point of enchantment. Simply, she was extraordinary. These current aspects will probably make her more famous, her legacy strengthened, her estate will make money.

She was both a strong woman, regally surpassing expectations, and had the exquisite touch of a feather. May she rest lightly.

Scorpio – Fires Within

Wednesday Oct 26 | 12.56 PM Pacific | Super New Moon | 3 Degrees Scorpio   This is the 5th of 2011’s 6 Super Moons.  Super Moons are when the Moon is 90% or greater of its closest approach to Earth.  When it is a full moon, it appears as much as 15% bigger!  They indicate more intensity, higher tides, strong storms if there is one, higher seismic activity.  This is a NEW MOON, and Scorpio is noted for intensity of the deep dark water variety!  Records could be set, relationships could start or crumble, there could be revelations about money sources, resurrection of old alliances, brushes with death, healing through saturation/immersion, miracles!  Time alone may be deeply needed and appreciated, a transfixion of quietness.  This is happening midday, so you may need to get away, take a bit later lunch, to meditate or have a private meeting.  Being a new moon, perhaps it is small beginnings, let things grow in their natural way.  The temptation is to use force, but avoid pushing at it, causing a distortionate break or growth ahead of its time.  Being only two days before the Jupiter trine Pluto puts it in that aspect’s hot zone!  There may be an ebb then a leap!  Read on….

Thursday Oct 27:  Occultations are Eclipses too, not just Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.  Oct 27’s Moon occultation Mercury is our last of the year.  Moon is emotional, Mercury is logical, and they are making a merger!  Feel what you think, say what you feel, but be really careful because this one is in Scorpio.  You can’t take back what you have said, and it may cut deep.  If a conversation even hints at turning South, let it go, NOW.  There may be an unanticipated price down the road, even revenge.  And it takes a lot of effort to repair, sometimes can’t be repaired.  The other side is someone may tell you something more valuable than you even realize at the time.  You may be healed or given a key piece of information that transforms you, your situation, relationship.  And it may be a blessing in disguise.  There could be an ending that serves you well in the long-term, and actually has been overdue.  Be able to engage, listen big, disengage if needed.  It’s a life skill worth having.  This is especially true this occultation because first Mercury is activated by its direct alignment with the Moon at 22 Scorpio at 7:08 PM, then the Moon passes over Venus at 23 Scorpio at 9:23 PM, just a little over 2 hours later!

First the New Moon quiets us, making us thoughtful in behind-the-scenes observant Scorpio, on the 26th.  Then the Moon, Mercury, Venus combination makes us extra aware of home and family, about love, the 27th.  It opens our capacity to attune, speak our love and affection, to kindly and potently tell what we want, both personally and in business, to see more clearly how we can make the money to support ourselves, loved ones, do things we naturally love.  These are the catalysts and a poignant part of the forming Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the very next day, the 28th, at 9:46 AM Pacific!

Friday Oct 28 Second Jupiter trine Pluto at 5 degrees Taurus and Capricorn.  This and the Jupiter sextile Chiron (the next one will be Dec 6) have been the aspects that have kept the Stock Market up this year.  Jupiter is expansionary, lucky, wise, foresees the directions things will take, is optimistic, will take long odds and win!  It has an extraordinary ability with perspective, watches the big picture, is playful.  Can’t keep a good Sag/Jupiterian down!   Pluto is the planet of wealth and Chiron of business!  Pluto cleans up messes, is expert at rebuilding after losses, recovery from illness, never says die!  When in top order, it is a clean machine!  Deep and internal cleansing, firing people who are not able to make the returns needed, are its forte.  Though at times painful for the recipient, in the long-term, the move is usually the best and reform and transformation happen.  Jupiter wants space; Pluto wants mergers and deep intimacy.  So, if a merger happens, it is probably a better deal than usual.  There has to be a real attraction for Jupiter to see a future in it and accept the transaction.  It will likely be a long-term value.  See more at last month’s pre Jupiter trine Pluto post.

Jupiter is fame, fiery, education, and speed sports; Pluto is death and healing, charisma, power.  The first trine was July 7 – on  July 8 we lost Betty Ford, died at the age of 93. She was known primarily for her work post-whitehouse and for founding one of the most famous rehabilitation facilities (The Betty Ford clinic) in the world. Widow of former president Gerald Ford.  Coming into this second trine, we have lost two.  1) Steve Jobs Oct 5 (4 degree trine): Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple, died due to  complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Jobs was known for his keynote speeches that were given each year to update the loyal Apple followers, as well as his enlightening interview style.  2) Oct 16 (2 degree trine): IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon died after suffering severe injuries in a spectacular 15-car wreck at the Las Vegas Indy 300. He was 33 years old. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year’s event) was critically hurt when his car sailed over the top of another during a massive, fiery wreck on Lap 11.  Ironically he had been driving test cars to avoid exactly that.

All of these people made powerful contributions, each in their own way.  May they rest in Peace.  And may we LIVE this aspect well, and carry on its teachings with Grace.

Sai(nts) Baba Gone and Sinners, Osama bin Laden Death Chart

Sathya Sai Baba is gone, tornadoes came to Alabama, William & Kate had their Royal Wedding, and the beatification of John Paul II happened! 

Bin Laden’s assassination has brought extremes of thinking and further stirred an already boiling world-wide pot!  Pluto in Capricorn has brought changes in long time regimes, and isn’t quitting.  Though  bin Laden didn’t ‘rule’ for a long time, he made world-wide impact as being thought to be the power behind the 911 attack, being so immune to capture, and simply being tall among men, confirmed 6′ 4″ tall.  Uranus, planet of surprises, in fiery Aries, is coming closer and closer into its square (challenge) with Pluto, of death and healing, and will continue to be in this square until Mar 16, 2015, making 7 exact aspects!  This aspect will continue to topple governments and powerful leaders.  And, the Phoenix will rise from its own ashes.

Deciphering the moment of death is a challenge in this kind of situation.  LivingMoonAstrology.com says ‘The American commando stormed the suburban home where Bin Laden was living on May 2, 2011, at around 1 am local time, according to a witness [Sohaib Athar] twitting the events in real time.’  Wikipedia says ‘ At approximately 1:00 a.m. local time (20:00, May 1 UTC), the SEALs breached the compound’s walls using explosives and attacked the compound’s structures and the compound’s guards opened fire.’  Also, ‘”The encounter with bin Laden lasted only seconds,” according to Politico, and took place during “the last five or 10 minutes” of the raid.’  CNN reported ‘A firefight was under way for most of the 40 [38] minutes that U.S. Special Operations forces were in the compound, as the team encountered resistance from bin Laden and three other men, a senior defense official said.  The official said the forces had to fight their way through the first floor of the three-story building, where two adult males lived.  Bin Laden and his family lived on the second and third floors, and they were cleared last, with bin Laden killed in the last five or 10 minutes of the siege, the official said.’  But, the  HeraldNews.SunTime.com says ‘But bin Laden refused to give himself up. That’s when he was shot in a bedroom — only minutes into the raid — ending a 10-year manhunt.’   Wiki further says ‘The raid was intended to take 30 minutes. All told, the time between the team’s entry in and exit from the compound was 38 minutes.  Time in the compound was split into exchanging gunfire with the defenders and searching the compound for information.’

Maybe it took them 10 minutes to have his wife ID him, do the photo ID comparisons, body bag him and transport him to the helicopter and leave?  That puts us back to 1:28 AM.  I put up a chart for May 2, 2011, at 1:28 AM in Abbottabud, Pakistan.

Death of Osama bin Laden Astrology Chart

Bin Laden’s death chart Moon is at 25 Aries.  It connects with 4 factors in bin Laden’s Mar 10, 1957 sunrise birth chart [birth time unknown].  1) It same degree semi sextiles his sunrise Mars (with South Node) at 25 Taurus – didn’t surrender.  Mars is the planet of Aries, so this is a stronger semi sextile than usual.  2) The Moon trines his Pluto at 28 Leo, forming a Grand Trine – smooth flowing, with the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius!  He was a man connected with the destinies of nations, even when he was in a cave!  Perhaps it was good it went quickly.  I think there will be more to the story in time.  Perhaps good will come of it in as yet unforeseeable ways.  3) It inconjuncts his Jupiter 27 Virgo that squares the Galactic Center, schisms between religions, family and funerals – he was hated by many, ‘buried’ at sea, and his son was killed.  4) It sextiles his sunrise Moon 27 Gemini, which was opposite the Galactic Center.  It was through his courier, Gemini, to his home, Moon, that revealed his location.  In some charts the Moon rules the People, in others it is the women and children, your family and home.  Certainly, we are hearing amazing points of view about the event.  The Moon is a fast moving factor, so it wouldn’t be expected, but in both charts, the Royal Wedding and this one, the Moons are connected with the Galactic Center, making international news.  Both of these events then, are connected with the Mayan Sacred Tree/Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012 calendar end/turnover, since the Sacred Tree center occurs only 6 degrees of the Galactic Center!

The six planet Aries stellium is formidable.  This is not a peacemaking combination, but a charging war!  Osama was shot twice, and it was done.  The whole operation took only 38 minutes.  The Aries Moon is Void of Course like in William & Kate’s Royal Wedding chart!  Astrologers would rarely choose a VOC Moon for an event, yet here again, we have a successful enterprise.  None of the horary astrology ‘exception’ rules apply to this chart as they did in William & Kate’s, but six planets in Aries?!  That could ram through just about anything!  And once a Taurus gets moving….  True, there is the other Void of Course caveat.  Compared to ‘nothing will come of it’ – that would be good if there are no further attacks/retaliations on America, ‘there’s nothing to stop it’ was exactly what happened!  Perhaps it’s a bit like the retrograde rule – if you are experienced with a matter, you will usually succeed during a retrograde.

Specifically, Mars doubly powerful in its own sign, conjunct lucky Jupiter, is like a powerhouse!  Mars is fast, fervent, focused, loves machines and weapons and fights, is especially courageous if the underdog.  They did lose that helicopter though.  Uranus of flight in a breaking square with Pluto endings.  Then they killed the helicopter with an explosion, Uranus, to obliterate it for security reasons, Pluto and Pluto.  That Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries has only happened two times before since 1900, Jan 6, 1940, and June 16, 1975.  This one was the day after the Royal Wedding, and the day of bin Laden’s assassination!

The Sun is at 11 degrees Taurus, in a life force breaking square with the Ascendant 15 degrees Aquarius.  In a manner, the bird is set free.  Taurus may be too slow and low in the chart to recover from this rift in the organization.  The Royal Wedding chart Sun also squares the Ascendant but in different signs!  The Ascendant/Descendants are reversed!  Theirs is 5 Leo Ascending while bin Laden’s death chart is 15 Aquarius Ascending.  I said, ‘With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.’   The Sun is leaving the sextile with Chiron, marriage, and the trine with Pluto, wealth.  No more.  And the Sun has moved up to inconjunct Saturn, another kind of life force weakening/breaking aspect, often not good for your health.  I said, ‘Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times.’

Venus and Mercury have moved just beyond the opposition with Saturn in Libra that was in the Royal Wedding chart making communications an issue, or perhaps creating and keeping a bridge of connection.  In this case it is good there was no connection; he never saw them coming!  Mercury has moved into conjunction with Jupiter, so the news is BIG!

Why the burial at sea?  Neptune the planet of the sea is in its own sign Pisces now, the sign of the sea.  29 Pisces is on the 2nd cusp, the part of the chart that has to do with one’s body.  29 Pisces is the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac, conjunct the 7 Weeping Sisters, the Pleiades.  The End.  Osama, himself a Pisces, has gone ‘home.’  Saturn is in the 8th of death, and rules the 12th of end of Spirit.  The usual options were blocked.  The ritual performed was probably the best they could do to show respect to a formidable warrior, stop further damage.  Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, suggests a death of necessity, to end the past with a significant message.  Perhaps enough time has passed that he won’t be made a martyr.

Wishing you peace and healing no matter what your circumstances are. I had a friend who was in the towers, survived 911, but her Spirit was struck. I pray, in time, losses and revenge will dissolve to forgiveness. Blessed be.

April 1998 in Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden, Pisces born March 10, 1957

Sai Baba – Astrological Birth and Death Charts

Scorpio - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Easter.  Today, that day of Resurrection, is the day the Great Master, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, chose to leave his earthly body.  What a message.  We are born again.

Here is the chart of his birth.  What is most unique is that he never left India to bring his message to the world.  At 84, he was revered by millions worldwide, with ashrams in over 126 countries.  Devotees included high-placed politicians, movie stars, world-class athletes and industrialists.  Over my lifetime, I have had friends who were with him when he performed some of his miracles.  I am a believer, and am sad at his passing, blessed that he lived, for my friends’ miracles were real to me and changed me too.

Saturn was next to his Sun in Scorpio when he was born, made him like a Capricorn as well as a Scorpio.  One of Saturn/Capricorn, abilities is apporting – the ability to materialize things out of thin air.  My friends saw him make roses appear in his hands, and the sacred ritual ash, Vibuthi, for their foreheads.  With Saturn at Baba’s Ascendant and Sun, he was a hard worker, and likely life was not always easy.  He never married or had children.  They say we teach what we need to learn.  Baba’s Venus and Mercury were in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Aquarius, a love of spiritual teaching and people of all places.  His Mars was in Taurus, an enduring warrior devoted to his purpose, a founder.  His Moon in Cancer gave him a love of home, so he built an ashram, a spiritual home for people to come live and learn with him.  Crowning his chart is Neptune in Leo, at 26 degrees in a positive exact trine with wth Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius!  Spirituality fit for a king, major fame, though most Scorpios like to operate from behind the scenes.  Another thing that brought this man forward was that four of his planets, Saturn, Sun, Venus and Mercury were all in his first house, the Aries house, making him sacrifice his privacy for leadership!  Or you could say he led from behind since his medium was meditation and spirituality, both invisible!

Baba’s Death Chart, Easter April 24, 2011, Puttaparthy, India at 7.40 AM

It is thought by many that the sign you die in is the one you reincarnate in!  So here he went with Sun and Ascendant in Taurus, the opposite sign of his Sun and Ascendant he had this life, Scorpio!  Pluto and Moon are in Capricorn, the opposite sign they were in this life, Cancer!  In both instances, he has gone the maximum distance, reach, across the zodiac!  He leaves us during a 5 planet Aries Stellium (cluster of 3 or more planets in the same sign), a champion even in death.  The Ascendant of his death chart is 29 degrees Taurus, a classic degree in horary astrology of something to weep about, the degree of the 7 Sisters, the Pleiades.  Indeed.


Death Chart around Birth Chart 

Difficult Aspects
Pluto in Capricorn at his natal South Node – controversy over past leadership/authority/integrity
Neptune/Chiron Pisces square natal Venus/Mercury Sagittarius – unsurety over management of the Satya Sai Central Trust, estimated to be worth over $8.9 billion, or much more, and issues of fake miracles.  No successor has been named to run the trust.  Venus and Mercury are money and naming.  Neptune and Chiron are spiritual business, the unknowable, miracles.
Saturn in Libra and Mercury/Mars/Jupiter in Aries forming a T square natal North Node, Moon, Pluto in Cancer – controversy over sexual abuse of devotees, fake miracles, the June 1993 killings in his bedroom.  Oops.  Saturn can be rather merciless, wants an accounting.  Mercury/Mars/Jupiter search for the truth.  Moon is bedrooms/at home, Pluto is vast sums of $, death, mysteries.

Positive Aspects
Neptune/Chiron Pisces sextile natal Mars in Taurus
– hopefully things will be worked out with the Trust leadership and the good works will continue
Uranus/Venus in Aries trine natal Venus/Mercury in Sagittarius – world love and leadership will network to carry on teaching the message, helping to focus for the June 5, 2012 Venus Transit and Mayan Crossroads/Sacred Tree Dec 21, 2012
Jupiter in Aries sextile natal Jupiter in Aquarius – Jupiter rules fame, orthodox religion, state ceremonies, funeral rituals, truth, teaching, expansion.  Perhaps much more will come to light about Baba’s life in the next few years.  However that may shake out, he brought millions of people planet wide to spiritual insights and practice.  Millions of people in conscious practice are needed to keep the balance in a frightened world.  They will carry the power of the tipping point to a better life.

Steady in the Light and your Practice.  In Love, Cerena

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.
