Born with a Pisces Moon myself, I was interested to read expert astrologer Mary Plumb’s take on the abundance of Pisces energy all around us this February into March. Even Pope Benedict’s resignation is denoted with Pisces the Fish an ancient symbol of Christianity.
The horoscope for his official resignation (February 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm Rome Time) shows Venus and Neptune (sub-ruler of Pisces and god of the Seas) joined together upon Royal Star Fomalhaut @4Pisces. As a pair, Venus-Neptune describes the Catholic Church with its worship of Mary (Venus) and its mystical (Neptune) rituals and masses, and Fomalhaut’s themes include mysticism, magic, and the occult, but also inherited illness and congenital effects. As you know, the Pope cites ill health as the reason for his step-down.
Another Mary, Mary Plumb’s article Pisces Takes Over details the oceanic line-up of planets with the Moon on March 9th and the implications of this Jupiter-Neptune energy along with info on when planets are viewable in the night or early morning sky.
Plus, we’re hearing an increase in news events related to Pisces such as oceans, ships, water, fishing, oil and gas, dancing, footwear, negative escapism like alcohol and other drugs…well, here’s a good example–the cruise ship stuck in the Gulf of Mexico which is being tugged to shore–landfall sometime this evening.
And naturally a mention of the Piscean habits of secrecy, deception, and confusion is in order, right?
Today the long seige of a retrograde Mars ends as the planet of action, energy, and motivation begins a forward march. So if I were you (and I’m not last time I checked) I’d take some pertinent advice from my friend astrologer Julie Demboski on the matter!
Plus, if you’re not totally fed up with Politics, you may wish to visit my Political Astrology blog for a few astro-notes on the Mars Station Direct @ 3Vir40 in relation to Washington DC, my former place of residence. (Or maybe not. Wouldn’t blame you for being fed up with the varmints who now infest the land.)
While there be sure to scroll a smidgeon down Stars Over Washington’s sidebar for two considerations of the Astrology of DNC 2012 and RNC 2012 for that time draws near and more astro-notes will be forthcoming…
Either way, I hope today’s ‘Friday the 13th’ is going well for you and that all your ducks are lining up in neat rows, ready and eager to waddle forward!
If you appreciate the use of Astrology as a tool, a language, and a system of analysis that brings an element to any consideration which no other system provides: Time!–then the intrguing news that astrologers contributed beneficially to the Information Age is no large surprise.
But if that fellow reading this post from over your shoulder is unaware of the astro-info symbiosis, perhaps he’ll click the Astrology News Service link and check it out!
And if this reluctant astrologer had had anything to do with it personally, I’d say, You’re welcome…
10.31.11 Stars Over Washington has been updated today with ‘A World in Crisis’ (Max Igan videos), comments on and a link to VP Biden’s Keynote Address to the Florida DNC on 10.28.11, an Occupy Wall Street shout-out, and astro-notes on Uranus to Aries Point, The Drain area (4th house) of America’s natal horoscope, Sibly version.

Did you know that Wikipedia has decided that editors who have not edited topics on the site other than Astrology subjects cannot edit Wikipedia entries that concern the topic of….Astrology?
Yes, it surprises me, too, and the change seems quite crazy especially considering how in some circles the use and study of Astrology is controversial on its own. Is a skew now in force to sway readers against the venerable art and science of Astrology?
If so, the sound we hear may be Kepler, Copernicus, Lilly, and Nostradamus creakingly turning in their graves.
That’s going to be centuries’ worth of information to get wrong by sceptics with their own skews and misconceptions, dear Wikipedia – and I thought you were supposedly so…democratic!
From the Gross to the Sub-Rhyme
by Jude Cowell
Just in from my hometown newspaper The Banner-Herald comes an update on the two nuclear reactors still on track for construction in the southeastern state of Georgia in spite of the horrid Meltdown in Japan.
Yes, there are differences between power plant designs and the chance of a tsunami claiming one of the nuclear reactors in Georgia is slim to none. But there’s more to consider, if you care to read. The article includes a brief overview of how things stand in the US which may interest a wider audience.
Personally, I don’t like being reminded of the myth of Atlantis which (in one version of the tale) sank due to abuse/misuse of power. The asteroid Atlantis in Mundane Astrology has keywords: ‘abuse/misuse of power; where we feel doomed.’
If this turns out to be the case, I’ll blame the usual cast of wormy characters along with nuclear and other scientists and their institutions, laboratories, and related universities. The IAEA is also suspect in my book – can’t help it.
Uranus = AP an Astro-Factor in Current Troubles
Uranus to Aries Point, the current Solar Eclipse degree 13Cap38 (January 4, 2011) conjoining fixed star Manubrium (a flaring heat), midpoint picture Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: harm through force majeure, Jupiter opposite Saturn, Saturn quindecile Uranus, and other difficult planetary energies and patterns now active in Earth’s atmosphere and the historical timeline are proving too hot for would-be rescuers to handle and too debilitating to Life on Earth for me to keep out of prayer for very long and I must move on mentally and emotionally to a different topic for a while, y’know?
So here are 3 previous posts which concern timely Spring 2011 topics w none of them updated for this linking:
Spring Equinox 2011 (aka, Aries Ingress, or Spring Ingress – basically when Tropical Sun reaches 00Aries00:00, the Aries Point of World Manifestation. 00Lib00:00 and 00Can00:00/Cap are the other three points on the Physical Plane – Grand Cross of earthly existence, and signified by the number 4.
Now I don’t know about you, but I could do with less world manifestation at the moment, agreed? If only the world could have a few moments to catch up. Perhaps a return of Uranian electricity to the power plants will bring solutions for Japan.)
This Weekend’s Full Moon 3.19.11 (Purim begins @ sundown)
On a rhymier note, if you’ve ever wondered to yourself if ancient foxes were prehistoric man’s best friend, you might on a whim check out Woolly Mammoth Chronicles, compliments of yours truly.
Be Aware that a certain whimsical video may be involved. jc
Update 3.18.11: a fresh post in now up concerning the March 19, 2011 Full Moon and its weather-affecting status as a SuperMoon.
Well, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange will be freed on bail today or tomorrow and won’t have to spend Christmas in a Victorain-era prison, and astrologer Julie Demboski takes a look at what’s going on over our noggins today, December 16, 2010, with the Moon leaving Aries behind and happy to be exalted in Taurus. Julie writes on today’s Material Consequences in and from Pacific Time so be sure to catch up with her insightful analysis.
Mercury Rx in early Capricorn continues backing up toward Sagittarius and will be crossing the threshold of ’30Sag’ soon, the “The Pope Blessing the Faithful” degree (and I’m sure he does) as the planet of negotiations, messages, and The Mind leaves Pluto’s Cap neighborhood for a while but soon to reunite.
Today’s Sun Sag-Moon Tau blend is a Fire-Earth ‘scorched earth’ combination of energies which holds entrenched beliefs, has much self-confidence, and exhibits extravagant tastes. It loves pleasant surroundings and familiar faces and is a ‘practical philosopher’ blend that loves to know all the facts and has a tendency to let others pick up the bill…kind of like the richest 2% taking public dole from the new tax cut deal between Mr. Obama and the GOP – which makes the rich richer and the poor poorer.
No kudos for you on this one, Washington, for you’re still up to the same old class warfare tricks so favored by the plutocratic combo of Pluto/Chiron, here in our US oligarchy.
Of course, the transiting Pluto/Chiron midpoint is on the Midheaven Point (Goal) of the Inauguration 2009 horoscope so the Obama-GOP collusion against the disenfranchised is no big surprise here.
Speaking of finances, you may find today’s Images for Integration for Sun Sag-Moon Tau of interest: “A pirate ship searches for gold…An armchair traveller roughs out a financial plan for his next adventure.”
(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
This blend is shared natally by the great John Milton who wrote the following which reminds me of a man sitting in a Victorian-era prison cell:
“A mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”
Fretteth not, oh jolly Jupiterians among ye, for mayhap yon missing stripe returneth to royal Jove’s visage as he approacheth Mars’ Aries Point once again!
Space Weather News for Nov 30, 2010
JUPITER’S MISSING STRIPE: A disturbance in Jupiter’s atmosphere thought to herald the return of the planet’s missing stripe is growing rapidly and now stretches almost halfway around Jupiter’s globe. It is so big, novice observers are beginning to notice it in the eyepieces of backyard telescopes.
Visit SpaceWeather.com for latest images and a sky map.
Hmmm…speaking of wealthy Jupiter and his banking interests, I was just thinking that the return of Jupiter’s stripe reminds me of shoppers lined up at malls to return the merchandise they impulsively purchased (in Jupiterian fashion) on Black Friday!
In addition, you are cordially invited to check out a little weird science mixed with my Odes to a Woolly Mammoth if you dare investigate…the

Having just updated my July 2010 post concerning the December 21, 2010 Lunar Eclipse @ 29Gem21, I thought you might wish to check it out with its ‘crisis degree’ implications for the US economy.
In alphabetical order, this Lunar Eclipse is of special significance to the natal charts of Afghanistan (Saturn), Australia (Mercury and Neptune opposition), Cuba (Neptune), Israel (Jupiter), Japan (Moon), Manhattan (Uranus), NYC (Venus/Mars conjunction @ 29Sag), North Korea (Uranus), Palestine (Uranus), Phoenix AZ (Jupiter), and Vatican City (Saturn).
Curiously, the natal horoscope of the NYSE is not so directly affected by the December 2010 Lunar Eclipse so hopefully the astrologer-and-economist-predicted market crash ‘by the end of the year’ won’t be as negative as feared though the Solar Eclipse of Jan 4, 2011 awaits us after the holidays…and directly opposes US natal Sun at crisis degree (13Can/Cap.)
Even economist Gerald Celente has predicted a market crash by the end of 2010 and he should know. Given the crisis-degreed Lunar and Solar Eclipses and their portents, I shall agree with him – at least that something deflating is afoot as we enter 2011.
But I’ll Be Home for Christmas
The Dec 21, 2010 Lunar Eclipse has a Sun Sag-Moon Gem blend which gives our atmosphere a Fire-Air vibe, and as you know, Fire-Air has a ‘live wire’ flavor that’s full of exciting ideas easily communicated with much enthusiasm. Yet its ideals may be impractical unless there is an Earthy quality to call upon for physical manifestation of them. Still, this indicates that a much-needed gregarious, sociable quality may infuse the December holidays and I, for one, am quite ready for that eventuality, aren’t you?
A caution, however, is that Sun Sag-Moon Gem blend of energies is prone to spreading itself too thin while overanalyzing things in order to hide its true feelings. It’s easy to live by one’s wits with this combination, plus, a ‘Peter Pan’ influence may be in the air.
This blend is friendly and open to other cultures, and is a natural teacher, spokesperson, or trendsetter. Its Image for Integration is:
“Robin Hood as a young boy plays truant from school to go to his archery lesson, but ends up teaching his card tricks to his master.”
(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
Sounds a bit like MasterCards may come out of wallets for a few gift purchases! (And gift cards are fine – just send them on along!)
FYI, this particular witty, charming, and intellectual blend of Sag-Gem is shared natally by some very well known folk such as: Anna Freud, Jeff Bridges, Noel Coward, ‘New Ager’ Benjamin Creme, dictator Francisco Franco, chantreuse Edith Piaf, Green Party founder Petra Kelly, Kirk Douglas, Tina Turner, Gary Hart, Abbie Hoffman, and author C. S. Lewis.

And fyi, I’ve just posted the first 3 videos in the series Waking Up to Reality by Max Igan with a link to the last 4 videos. You may think you want to skip this cosmic presentation by Mr. Igan, but you really don’t because you too are an integral part of The Matrix, a cell of the cosmic consciousness.
And I know you know that an Astrology chart represents a cell, a map of DNA at your very fingertips…right? So if it’s your natal chart, you have a picture of your DNA in black and white. Too bad genetic scientists don’t understand this (or perhaps some of them do but they’re not telling.)
As Above, So Below…
Yes, it is literally time for the Global Awakening!
