Happy Birthdays, Beautiful Virgos!

Virgo Chandra Wilson aka Dr Miranda Bailey

Virgos are health oriented, so it is no surprise our Aug 27 heroine Chandra Wilson plays a Dr on the wildly popular Grey’s Anatomy. The part of Dr. Bailey, supervisor to the hospital interns, had been written for a petite, Caucasian blonde, but Wilson, a full-figured African-American woman, gave such an impressive audition that the show’s producers decided to give her the part!  Here she has the sweet look Virgos are known for; on Grey’s she can be the picky, bitchy character from time to time, that wants only the very best!  Actress, director, single Mom of 3 children.  With her Venus in Cancer trine Neptune in Scorpio, she is a loving philanthropist – for breast cancer, Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome and Mitochondrial Disease, college scholarships, for actors, the Red Cross, a shelter that assists the homeless and battered women.  She has so much to her credit.  God bless.

Virgo, The Puzzle Magician!

Mercury is Virgo’s planet.  It rules Gemini as well.  Both are wordsmiths.  Geminis are terrific with spoken words, sales.  Virgos are the number one sign of the written word, authors!  Both are thinkers.  Gemini thinks a mile-a-minute, connecting the dots, carrying the message from one to the next.  Virgos make sure the pieces fit, the parts becoming a meaningful whole!

We each have Virgo in one to two places in our charts as signs usually straddle house demarcations!  That place in our charts is where we are the specialist, have unique concern for well-being.  Or that part of our chart is where our health is affected, where we need to reduce stress, worry.  Get out your chart, and your loved ones’, see where Virgo falls in yours and theirs.  See if there are any planets in Virgo as well.  You can get your free chart at Astro.com even if you don’t have your birth time (just enter noon).

The Ascendant, First House:  We lead with the fine points, emphasizing how each part affects the whole.  Our health is generally more tender, but we may bully through, standing long after others have fallen, due to our diligent, proactive attention to health matters, a model for all!  ‘Intelligence’ matters.  We want to be thought of as smarter than the average cat, and are disappointed when people don’t take advantage of our well tested offerings.

Second House:  We have reliable sources of income, and know where every bit is coming from.  Well done, each part supports the other.  We tend the garden of veggies and herbs that serve so well and inexpensively.  Simplicity counts, though innate intricacy is a patient fabric, a sensible web of life.  Desires are for low maintenance, time saving devices, especially at the spa!

Third House:  Our mind is busy in every direction, but Virgo, the Director, groups the categories, decides which is worthwhile, gets to the point, collects the evidence, I mean information, and arrives at a fine conclusion!  The ultimate is how your mind works!  This Virgo place has superior connections to tap, for superlative results!

Fourth House:  Home care is on the agenda.  Raising children cleanly, healthily, with an opportunity to learn the trade of their Spirit, is top of the list!  There can be a deep thoughtfulness about women’s roles, how they feel, how that affects them and their health.  Sometimes there is emotionalism right alongside logic.  Learn how to use them together.

Fifth House:  This is a fired up Virgo!  They are passionate about the individual’s right to select what works for each of them specifically!  No two people are just alike whether it’s health or learning styles.  Creativity often is in patterns – maybe it’s building a fine stage with an exquisite lighting and computer array!  Acting your part is perfectly and delicately nuanced.  Documentaries, educational. are best entertainment!

Sixth House:  This is Virgo’s natural house, it being the 6th sign.  Plenty of thinking about thinking.  It doubles the concerns about health.  Relationships with landlords, co-workers, employees, pets, are important.  They are sensitive to Divine Order and daily routine!   Excellence of service makes a huge difference, whether they are giving or getting it.  They will help you if they humanly can.

Seventh House:  Unlike the Second House, another Venus ruled house, the resource of the 7th is our relationships with people, where in the 2nd, it is goods, our possessions.  Virgo here is quite selective, and you have to ‘prove ‘ your worth, be productive.  Pros and Cons lists are common.  Legal matters may take a lot of time.  We’re talking fine art, not crafts, or very fine crafts – quality to be famous for!

Eighth House:  The web behind the scenes is a delicious maze!  It’s Virgo’s glory to untangle, reweave, repair, upgrade!  It’s important to set some limits, or the job will never be done!  It might be money tracking, a more mysterious twist to the tale, research, finding out about someone!  The library is full, and they can read all night!  As analyst and healer they won’t give up.  They may be non-sexual or tantric masters!

Ninth House:  Here is the graph maker’s position.  Comparison of large databanks helps find the meaning of, relativity of factors!  Trends point directions so no time is lost; attention can be applied succinctly. Education will be remarkably fulfilling.  Focused knowledge will increase enjoyable longevity.  Articulate presentations will be inspiring for whatever cause you have in mind, religious or secular.  Religious studies intrigue.  Travel may be tiring, but what amazing places you will choose!

Tenth House:  This can be your choice of work/career or your role as the boss!  It may be hard to settle on a choice, or you may be so dedicated it’s hard to get you home to family!  You may suffer at the hands of a super fastidious boss, or guard yourself from being one.  Health professions, service industries, property maintenance, construction details, animal care, author, are possibilities.  Balance the time it takes to be better and best with getting the job done on time, even if you are your own boss!

Eleventh House:  Unique talents, maybe even an Astrologer!  Friends are unusual, or you are picky and friendless, maybe they wear you out.  Friends could be ones you share causes with, local or from all over the world!  You may be an internet adept, an extraordinary gardener!  You are less likely than many others to fall prey to major losses from seductive schemes because you like to try them for yourself on a small scale first.  Surprisingly you might know a lot about money industries, benefits, banking.  Things you know could change the world!

Twelfth House:  Sinner or Savior, people believe you!  Spiritually you can have your ducks in a row!  Or, you need more care than most, being the delicate creature you are.  You can be uncertain of your ‘facts,’ awash in myriads of worries, seem at the mercy of imagination, with details that don’t gel.  But you can dream or intuit your way through the time tunnels and come out relatively unscathed, miraculously saved, from yourself and others, a wise healer.  This is the musicians’ combination, an oceanic traveler who guides our Soul, a true Visionary!

Together we conquer the Vastitudes!  Hallelujah!  Praise be!

Happy Birthdays, Virgos!

Thank you to all of you for the love you give, the work you do,
your support of me, the healing you send to all.

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.

Aries is the ram and lamb; Taurus is the bull, cattle for meat, cows for milk.  Gemini is the first ‘human’ sign, the Twins, an air sign ruling the lungs, our very breath of life, the same breath we use to communicate the Word.  Gemini is also the hands we reach out with to touch heal one another, a handshake, an honoring acknowledgement.  Without communication we wither.  Feeling unheard, unaccepted, so alone, we can just die.  At the least, we stop talking.

In some ways we are all ‘Another yourself.’  We all have all the signs, planets and houses.  There is a harmonic, an understanding, if we know where to look for it.  I believe it is true that Souls are at different levels, making communications impossible if the gap is too large, yet the harmonic is still there.  One of the two can see it, perhaps lay a path of opportunity.  I believe sometimes spirits can be so broken as to be irreparable.  A seasoned teacher/healer learns when to let go and move on to help who can be helped.  We are called because we sense the harmonic, a place in our self that needed a similar healing, even just a simple recognition of suffering, that makes us yearn to put in a seed of change, a comforting touch.  Such it is when we perceive ‘I am another yourself.’

Chatting  you up is often so not casual or frivolous as many think.  It’s a fine diversion, an invitation to change your focus, a time placeholder until your thoughts get in order.  It’s often quite calming.

Geminis are fabulous at keeping us informed moment to moment, current affairs right here in the ‘hood!  Magazines, blogs, the news, newsletters, the letter from your GrandMa, over your fence to the neighbors,  coupons in the mail, your local errands!  Get tickets for two!

Sibs, of course.  Another form of ‘twins’ ‘cause they are in your tribe.  Even though they don’t agree with you, they came from where you came from, and they ‘get’ it.

Sports involving twosomes – tennis is a favorite, an on your feet whole body exchange.  Just like a twin, you must mirror, can even anticipate, the other’s action to do well in the game.  Twins in practice!

Pets come in twosomes – they need someone of their kind to talk/play with, to fully grow.

Contracts are one of Gemini’s specialties.  And calligraphy.  Might as well pretty it up, written words flow just like a living voice!

Wherever Gemini is, there will be curiosity and change as ideas are explored!  Diversity is their gift, adaptability their Ace!  Offer your Gemini children many
opportunities to strengthen their mind muscle to make good choices!  They are not your clone, their planets have moved further ahead than where yours were when you were born, but they still have all those same signs, planets and houses, just in different places.  That crosses all generations.  Take special time with them to understand, for they are the latest version of another yourself.


On another note, how Gemini can a day get?!

Last night, May 19, I went to see the Premiere of Identical, a movie about identical twin boys, one sweet spirited, the other ‘evil’ – a killer who kills to ‘protect’ his twin.  Earlier in the day I had a client who has recently had a facelift.  Isn’t she still ‘identical’ to herself?  Yet, she is ‘facing’ a difficult family situation where she is about to set lifelong needed boundaries, is putting a new ‘face’ on her affairs in other realms of her life as well, including doing some remodeling!  Got me to thinking.  Gemini, to its great credit and advantage, is two-faced, two people, male/female.  Gemini has double the options, and keeps multiplying!  We can be face to face, face off, or have your back, eyes in the back of your head, aware of the many facets of a situation!


Gemini Donald Trump

Gemini, June 14, 1946, Donald Trump, has been in the news lately as a presidential candidate who dropped out!  Trump is a TV Celebrity, real estate mogul.  Bill Gates is at $56B, Warren Buffett at $50B, DT a mere $2.7B per Forbes!  The announcement occurred with Jupiter square his natal Venus, Sun moving in to square his Mars, Chiron with Mars moving in to Yod his natal Neptune, hence the mysteries regarding his dealings, and a lost dream.  Trump has a mixed financial reputation as does June 5, 1951 Suze Orman, another famous Gemini in the money world.

Venus Transit/Eclipse Chart – 15 Gemini, June 5, 2012!

North American observers can see it the afternoon of June 5, 2012

I’m writing to you well in advance about this event because I think it is important and it precedes the 2012 Mayan calendar event by only a few months.  I am wanting you to hold it in your consciousness, every day be readying yourself for it, put it in your practice.  Be thinking how you can get others ready.  If I could, I would have you see it as sort of like a Soul bath.  You would lay in your lawn chair, facing the Sun, and vision yourself soaking up everything there is to receive, being bathed in loving Light.  You don’t even have to know what that is.  I believe it will come.  Clean your receptors, open your heart.  Those of you who know astrology, study how it will be placed in your chart.  I’m starting to talk about it with every client.

Venus Transits come in pairs spaced eight years apart, but the time between pairs is 122 years, then 105 years. Due to this pattern, only six Venus transits have been seen since the invention of the telescope.  The 2004 Venus Transit was the first of our latest pair. Before that, the most recent transit had been in 1882—which means no living people on Earth had seen a Venus transit when the 2004 event occurred.  Some speculate this rare Transit was one of the reasons the Mayans chose 2012 as their 26,000 year cycle end/start date.

The Venus eclipses have been in the first 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius since 60 AD!  The previous June 8, 2004 Venus Transit was at 17 Gemini, square Jupiter, widely square Moon/Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto (a loose Mutable Grand Cross involving 7 planets).  Mutable signs call for diversity, adaptability.  The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is mind and meaning, communications near and far, from here to the University.  The Virgo/Pisces axis is service and devotion, working hard and dreamtime magic, healers of body and Soul.

This Venus retrograde conjuncts/eclipses the Sun at 15 degrees airy space-in-the-mind Gemini, both of them square Mars at 16 degrees  get-the-job-done Virgo.  Venus in Gemini is loving communications, appreciations, expressing affection, valuing diversity of thinking.  Square Mars in Virgo calls for that desire being thought about to be put into action, to break through from pleasure to leadership on a daily basis.  Virgo tends the fort, wants all to be healthy, not too much sugar!   Jupiter is at 28 degrees, finishing Taurus about to enter Gemini, just one degree from the Pleiades.  Mercury is at 27 Gemini, in a one degree semi sextile with this Jupiter.  There will be a lot to say, some of it profound, about the goings on, because this 27 Gemini position is powerfully positioned exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER, downloading the information to the people!  This is important because the Mayan Calendar turnover at the Sacred Tree, Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012, occurs only 6 degrees from the Galactic Center!  The Moon is conjunct Pluto, sextile Chiron, square Uranus.  This Moon position highlights Pluto; Pluto at this degree becomes part of the Jupiter three planet 8 degree YOD in the Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar turnover!  All will not go as planned, surprises in the offing, some left behind, inevitable deep-rooted change due to fathers, sadly, something to ‘weep’ about, a longed for professional matter at stake.  Some things, though much talked about, must be done alone, yet profoundly affect our mates, or we are affected by them….

Venus Transit chart, June 5, 2012, 5:09 PM Pacific, Santa Barbara CA

Due to the huge size difference, no way can Venus ‘eclipse’ the Sun – we call it a Venus Transit.  In images it is a mere black dot in a sea of yellow fire as it crosses the face of the Sun!  I think of it as a voyage, pilgrimage, a rite of passage, across this magnificent space being.  It is a merger, an immersion, being imbued, saturated, infused, with the brightest Light our Solar System, our neighborhood in the galaxy, has to offer!  And it is lined right up with US!  Whew!  This is the Kleig Light of Heaven, from our Heart of Light, transmitted, telegraphed, filtered, amped, a direct shot!  Do you think flowers in bloom at that time will have more powerful pollen, seeds, essences?!  Not one pore of Venus will be left untouched.  If your love went cold, those with planets touched by this aspect, will be warmed right back up, solar charged!  You may feel you have plenty to give, more than ever!  Venus matters ‘enlightened’ will involve beauty, the arts, money, attractiveness, our values, love, kindness, graciousness, giving.  Perhaps you will be ‘weeping’ for JOY!

In Gemini, the Word, all those matters will be spoken of, listened for, written up!  Start your blog!  Multifaceted ideas will spring forth, diversity rules!  Marketing and advertising will be blessed with connecting people who love what is being sold.  Contracts will be better for all involved.  How we learn, pay attention, will improve, education be more cherished.  Learning a second language will be more valuable not only to improve memory, but to make special connections with people that used to be out of reach.  Touch healing, massage will flourish.  Sports like tennis, running, may make new records!  Very true, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.  Words of praise and appreciation make all the difference.  Love formula – 5 praise to 1 criticism.  What we think – what we focus our attention on, how we think – half full/half empty, matters.  Profoundly.

Venus rules first Taurus, Earth, then Libra, Air.  Taurus has a sensual beauty, rules celebrities and common sense, the monies at hand, the sitting Buddha, Earth, our self esteem.  Libra rules classic beauty, the fine arts, etiquette, Kwan Yin, balance, our adult peer relationships, marriage, how we see our value among our peers, legal proceedings.  We all have both signs in our charts.  Find out where they are in your chart, then read the Venus Transit into those houses, and which house the exact Transit is in, to see what and where you personally are activated.

Those of you with birthdates from the 2nd to the 8th of the month, and/or have planets from 12 to 19 degrees of any sign, will be the most affected by the Venus Transit.  Most air and fire signs will be comfortable with it, may flourish.  Other mutable signs, Virgo and Pisces at square, Sagittarius opposite, may be put off by all the ‘meaningless’ chit chat, may not even hear of it, or be surprised by, perhaps at first annoyed by, new ideas that seemed hidden!  Earth signs want to keep their routine, but there will surely be disruptions.  Water signs, though intrigued, may duck under to see what is happening below the surface and to rest their ears.

A client asked me …will all these changes be for the good?  In some ways the World is already better as people seek new solutions (energy production, government).  Any change proves there CAN be change.  With a lot of old world regimes toppling, there will be chaos and clumsy reform that may take years to settle.  That’s normal.  Change of such magnitude takes time.  Flooding with education and information (Gemini) are imperative.  Giving alternate solutions gives choice (Gemini).  Some of those people have been ‘asleep’ for a long time.  Breaking with tradition and psychological habit is scary.  So change itself, though a relief for some, is part of what can stall the very things it is looking toward.  Encouragement and less poverty, the ability to provide for themselves, create a security base that allow the luxury of a more positive choice.  One of the maxims of natural cycles is it is always darkest before the Light.  Now is the time to stay steady – get us through and beyond the chrysalis of this stage.  Though a chrysalis is a hardened shell, to protect the pupa of the butterfly, it is often seen twitching with life when touched….

This Venus Transit comes before the Dec 21, Winter Solstice, 2012 Mayan calendar end/turnover, giving us LOVE first to cap the final achievements.  We finish the final days before the Calendar ends with more GRACE.  This sets the foundation for a sweeter start of the next cycle, the BLESSINGS to come in the new times!

Let love light the dark way, return to the Light, see the Light.  Merge with, emerge from, the Heart of Light, it’s a free ride!  Reverence to all Beings.  Namaste.  Or as the Mayans say, “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself [Gemini, the Twins]. 

Gemini, Sign of the Hands, the Honored Sign of Transference of the Venus Transit June 5, 2012

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.

First, if you ever thought of Capricorn as a dark and gloomy sign, I am here to show you, per the Goats, Capricorn’s animal, what Capricorn, Saturn can be! Note that goat wink in the very beginning! If you love goats, you might have to watch it twice!

Now, with that in mind….

Capricorn, Saturn, the Sacred Builder to 2012

Here was the question: When Saturn (Capricorn’s Planet) leaves a house [could apply to a sign as well as a house], does he leave a reward? I’ve read both “yes” and “no.”

My response:

A few thoughts on how to prove how Saturn has worked for you or not – For the average size astrological house, if you use an unequal house system, Saturn takes 2 ½ years to go through, making aspects as he goes. You could track events to see what happened at those times, seeing your personal specific accumulated gain, changes and how you felt when you started and how you feel about those things now.  A lot can happen in 2 ½ years!

A long term way of looking would be to go back 29 years when Saturn was there before, see what you did then, and how different, or the same, your life is now.

Because Saturn moves that slowly, you may not perceive what you earned, being such an integral part of your daily affair, you don’t notice the difference until sometime later, when you hear yourself saying, Ah, that was the time when I …………………….   If the reward is a principle, a perception, a state of mind, change of attitude, in other words, invisible, you may not ‘see’ it. Count all your blessings.

If you did nothing, you could not only not get a ‘reward,’ but be in the hole. Classic Saturn phrases could be you get what you give, you reap what you sow – karma stuff. But even if that happens, you see that, and the gift/reward becomes your seeing that you need to do something to make something happen! You have to answer the phone, speak to the person that says ‘Hi,’ get out of your bed.

I don’t think it’s as much Saturn leaving a reward, as you meeting life. The question might be better put, ‘How did you meet the matters of that house when Saturn was in that house?’ Did you stand up to the plate, is it a weak spot?  The Spirit of Capricorn, an Earth sign, wants tangible results – did  you make the dream come true, make it so?!

Capricorn, Saturn, are the great builders, achievers – where transiting Saturn is now in your chart is where you are currently building.  May be small beginnings, but the seed is there. Though it may be under its soil covers at present, the seed is in the garden, and what seeds can become is amazing!  Oak and redwood trees, tall buildings!

Build on…on our way to 2012. You ARE the Architects of our future!

With Pluto in Capricorn since 2008 until 2024, just remember to get down on your knees frequently.  You know, Capricorn rules the knees – bending to Spirit’s will, supplication, surrender in a good way….   Little burro’s carry heavy loads…core strength is everything!  Doing knee exercises, will help with the kneeling….

Blessings to all you Capricorns, Happy Birthdays!
