Full Moon in Cancer, December 22, 2018

Helpful insights on the Dec 22nd Full Moon in Cancer:

Libra Seeking Balance

This Full Moon at 0° 49′ Cancer on 22 December 2018, 09:49 AM PST, brings opportunities to see where we need to clear the decks and make a fresh start. The energy to make this happen is there too with a cardinal emphasis and the luminaries aspecting Uranus in Aries.

The situation with Uranus in Aries aspecting the Capricorn Sun and Cancer Moon is an interesting one. While Aries squares Capricorn and Cancer by sign, if we go by the numbers the Moon is sextile Uranus and the Sun is trine. The bottom line is this generates the need to take action. Uranus in Aries provides the fuel, the Capricorn Sun gives the ability to plan carefully and the Cancer Moon gives us the reasons why we need to take the next step. The important thing is move with caution rather than leaping into something, as tempting as that might…

Christmas Card 2018

One cartoon sums it up for Britain!

The Oligarch Kings

Just when Theresa thought it could’nt get any worse…..”

The British are in a political quandry the likes of which have not been seen since Suez.  They all want rid of Theresa May the Prime Minister, but no one wants the poisoned chalice whilst Brexit continues.  However Theresa seems to finally have pissed everyone off by her endless attempts to be all things to all men.

Here below is last year’s card which is probably even more apposite today then then.

Face it Theresa it’s only children that believe in either of us any more…..

Horoscopes: 116th Congress and the July 2019 Solar Eclipse

leave a comment »

As you can see, the 3 North Solar Eclipse of July 2, 2019 manifests upon the IC (Foundation; Basis; Domestic Scene) of the 116th Congress Horoscope set for its opening on January 3, 2019 at noon est, Capitol Building. This suggests that events brought along or triggered by the 3 North eclipse in July 2019–and we may as well face it: 3 North is the Prenatal Eclipse Saros Series (‘PE’) of the 9/11/01 attacks–will be at the basis of 116th Congress activities during the second half of 2019. And unfortunately, 3 North‘s caution that, ‘large plans are wanted–but don’t get carried away’ went unheeded in 2001 by Bush-Cheney and the “1% gang” so we’ll see how well things are handled this time around.

Plus, a major feature is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi‘s natal Jupiter in Aries rises in the January 3rd chart while the natal Jupiter in Libra of Donald Trump sets on the Descendant. Politics, plans for expansion, and ideals are at odds! But we don’t need Astrology to predict a stand-off between the two leaders do we?

Please enlarge the image to read my study notes squished (as usual!) upon the chart. And if you wish, more details concerning the 116th Congress’ Horoscope are available as are astro-notes on the Lunar and Solar Eclipses of 2019 with themes.

Astrology of the 2020 Election

Having just published a post on Stars Over Washington concerning
2020 Election Day (horoscope/s shown) here are a few astro-notes on Election Day 2020’s Sun Scorpio-Moon Gemini blend of energies with the day’s Moon ranging from 9Gem27 to 21Gem29 and Sun, as usual, in Scorpio. Note that a Gemini Moon suggests a changeable, unstable, or of-two-minds public mood of We The People.

This Water-Air blend is an ethereal mix of restlessness and volatility, and contains a sense of ‘splitness and division’. There’s a ‘quest for understanding’ though given how truth has fared in America of late under the-prevaricator-in-chief, this may indicate that the voting public’s need for facts will be, as is common, a wild goose chase. Emotional security is longed for along with the physical kind but this may be inconvenient for (cheating) leaders who use the ‘success at any cost’ and ‘ends justify means’ models of behavior. They pretend that cheating is winning! Continuing such pretense must take a psychic toll on their emotions though lack of a conscience or its neglect makes everything possible.

Anyway, I think the ‘Images for Integration’ for the Sun Scorpio-Moon Gemini combination on Election Day 2020 are revealing as given by Charles and Suzi Harvey in their book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign–see what you think while noting the Russian reference:

“Trivial Pursuits goes macabre…A virtuoso violinist touches the hearts of her audience…The mystery of life in a strip cartoon…Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov…Rodin’s The Kiss, Hands.”

Well, on the ‘fun side’ the Sun-Moon blend of November 3, 2020 includes a ‘glorious sense of the ridiculous’ which may turn out to be a comedic balm for our wounded nation while it installs a clown into the Oval Office.

Full Moon in Capricorn, June 27, 2018

Keeping an eye on Saturn in Capricorn by the light of the June 27th Full Moon!

Libra Seeking Balance

Saturn weighs heavily on us during this Full Moon at 06° 28′ Capricorn on 27 June 2018 09:54 PM PDT because it tightly conjoins the Capricorn Moon. Those who have been playing fast and loose with the rules are likely going to hear about it in no uncertain terms. However if we have been fulfilling our responsibilities in a careful, dedicated manner, we may finally begin to see some return for our efforts.

Adding a nice touch of innovative energy to this lunation is Uranus in Taurus trine the Moon-Saturn conjunction and sextile the Cancer Sun. This is a great combination for coming up with fresh, practical ways to increase productivity in our lives without sacrificing quality of life. It will be interesting to see how the naturally cautious Cancer-Capricorn axis responds to Uranus in Taurus’s need to build something new. One possible result is dramatic improvements in the way…

Donald Trump and Carelli’s 4 Virgo Symbol

On October 25, 2017 on Stars Over Washington I published a post concerning the 2017 and 2019 Secondary Progressed (SP) New Moons of Donald Trump (2019) and Adolf Hitler (2017).

That both SP New Moons fall upon 3Virgo+ seems significant to me due to the degree’s Sabian Symbol and the shared bigotry and eugenic-style views of both politicians. Follow the link for the entire picture but its gist is, “Black and White Children Play Together Happily…”. Also note that the post also contains the natal midpoint pictures of Trump and Hitler (for the sake of comparison).

As you know, Trump was ‘victor’ in 2016 and was inaugurated in 2017 while mired within his Balsamic phase of the Moon, the darkened phase full of endings and separations, a time when sneakiness abounds and things can ‘go bump in the night’. Symbolically, he remains within it now yet light will begin to dawn and a glimmer of a new phase of life will begin with his SP New Moon which perfects on September 19, 2019 in early Virgo- not that an instant difference will be felt or observed.

Here I shall add to the Sabian Symbol a partial quote concerning what *Adriano Carelli has to say about ‘4 Virgo’ to which I have added a few remarks in (italics):

“A steamroller”: A craze for planning and technology; a naive faith in purely mechanical progress; contempt for individual distinctions; love of the extreme and of the absolute. Some features of fatality in the existence, something inexorable in the character. A massive strength, an ability to lay out on broad lines work to be carried out by others and to give it the finishing touches after completion.

This same force, instead of preparing and perfecting usefully the work of others, can stay fruitless and can sponge upon its environment; or, even worse, instead of loveling (leveling? jc) and paving the way for the execution of the work planned, he can be employed to destroy and raze everything aimlessly to the ground.

{}

…where the stars point to fondness for the fruitless, artificial life usually led by the smartest set of society, a rush for pleasure will swallow up wealth laboriously built up by the ancestors. Plenty of well-meaning and helpful friends will be powerless to save the native from bankruptcy; once collapsed, neither his taste nor his artistic gifts (‘The Art of the Deal’? jc) will be of any avail. A third case is possible: an aggressive, destructive, brutal, and despotically leveling nature–in a word, a downright Vandalic or Hunnish character.

Undeniable in all cases is a profound sense of truth (he knows it but won’t tell it! jc), unaccountably coupled with fast living or ruthless destructiveness. (Or  both–jc.)

Example: in this degree is the Third Reich’s Mars as ruler of the Sun (Sun’s degree) and therefore lord of the MC, viz., indicative of the government and the army.”

Also note that a solar eclipse in Mr. Trump’s Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PE) Saros Series (2 Old North) perfects on July 12, 2018 with themes of ‘unfortunate news’ and ‘endings and separations’ yet ‘fast action can bring good results’ (Brady).

edit 13 July 2018: who exactly are the results good for? jc

‘4 Virgo’ quote from Carelli’s 360 Degrees of the Zodiac (1950).
