Full Moon in Pisces, September 13, 2019

with one comment

Here are brilliant insights on the Pisces lunation of September 12th:

Libra Seeking Balance

Reality takes a big hit on this Full Moon at 21° 05′ Pisces on 13 September 2019, 09:33 PM PDT. Neptune in Pisces plays a major role on this lunation, since it conjoins the Moon and is part of a mutable T-Square. Naturally the seven planets in earth (Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Virgo plus Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus) are going to act as ballast to keep us grounded but Neptune’s siren song can still insinuate its self into our brains, short-circuiting our common sense.

Coming up with a clear direction to make our next move is going to be extremely challenging now. The action planet, Mars, is in Virgo and part of a mutable T-Square. He is opposing Neptune in Pisces with both planets square Jupiter in Sagittarius. Jupiter amplifies Neptunian confusion, leaving poor Mars wondering what way is up. Mars in Virgo…

Book Review: The Cowkeeper’s Wish

Sounds as if The Cowkeeper’s Wish has everything!

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers

What would you give up and how far would you go to make a better life for yourself? Would you pack up what little you had and leave your loved ones and your rural homeland to seek your fortune in the big city? Would you walk 250 miles over mountains and moors while driving a herd of cattle to forge a new destiny? Just what would you do?

New York Times Bans Political Cartoons

Dear God where are we going?

Francis Power at the Battle of Bunker Hill

A reblog of one of my genealogy-related posts:

stricklands' blog

Happy Easter morning Everyone! If you celebrate then you know that He Is Risen!

Yet this quick post is intended to record what I discovered this morning on the familysearch dot org site concerning my ancestor Francis Power, Revolutionary soldier–and the fact that he fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill (June 17, 1775).

Here’s the famous painting by John Trumbull (public domain):


Now I knew that Francis Power signed up on January 3, 1776 to fight under John Glover of Marblehead Mariners fame during General Washington’s reorganization of the Continental Army (January 1, 1776) and was likely involved (being listed as a “seaman”) in the Christmas 1776 ferrying across the icy Delaware of Washington, his troops and artillery (a Herculean task), but it’s a surprise to me that Francis Power (descendant of Walter Power, see link below) was at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Yes, the…

When the Big Creek Rises…

On the mighty Mississippi:

“On the morning of Good Friday, April 15, 1927, Seguine Allen, the chief engineer of the Mississippi Levee Board in Greenville, Mississippi, woke up to the sound of running water. Rain was lashing the tall windows of his home near the great river with such intensity that the gutters were overflowing and a small waterfall poured past his bedroom. It worried him. He was hosting a party that day, but his concern was not that the weather might keep guests away. Indeed, he knew that the heavy rain, far from decreasing attendance, would bring out all of the community’s men of consequence, all as anxious as he for the latest word on the river.”

Full Moon in Scorpio, May 18, 2019

Good news on the May 18th Scorpio Moon – just watch out for the muddled Jupiter-Neptune square (Sag to Pisces)!

Libra Seeking Balance

We all need to seek peace and quiet on occasion, and this Full Moon at 27° 39′ Scorpio on 18 May 2019, 02:12 PM PDT creates the perfect atmosphere for taking time away from the turbulence of daily life. All but one planet, Jupiter in Sagittarius, are in earth and water signs that are usually happiest in a calm environment. There is determination to spare with the fixed sign emphasis, so tackle a big, dirty project and stick with it until it’s completed.

We have a smooth ride on this Full Moon, in part because both of Scorpio’s rulers are well aspected. Pluto in Capricorn is sextile the Scorpio Moon and trine the Taurus Sun-Mercury. Mars, now in watery Cancer, is happily sextile a Venus-Uranus conjunction in Taurus.

The combination of the Taurus Sun, Mercury and Pluto lends itself much better to introspection and contemplation than a whirlwind of social…

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
