Transit of Pluto to the Moon: Awakens Profoundly Troubling Emotions From the Very Depths of the Being

Question: Pluto is symbolic of an unconscious part of our mind, and this part of our psyche might take the form of a person or event that causes us to feel uneasy and stirs up conflict. If Pluto were to transit the Moon, it would very certainly signify a female or the mother. When Pluto is involved, it has a propensity to bring previously unconscious stuff to the surface, and when combined with the Moon, it increases the likelihood that…...

Astrology Anxiety: Fear of the Future

Question: I’m not sure whether anyone else has astrological anxiety, but I’ll put it out there anyhow. I began reading astrology as a pastime, but I find myself becoming anxious when major astrological events are approaching. Note that I suffer from generalised anxiety (I am in treatment and have spoken with my doctor about this). There will be a New Moon that will be in opposition to Uranus, and everything is pointing to the possibility of significant and unexpected change,…...

Transiting Chiron Aspects Pluto: The Wounded Butterfly

When Chiron transits Pluto, it might represent an extremely dark, sometimes painful, and disturbing time in your life; it can appear as if everything is becoming darker. This may manifest itself as an outer event, or it may manifest itself on a psychological level, in which case you may be confronted with intense feelings within yourself that threaten to fundamentally alter your perspective on life, as well as certain structures around which you have built your sense of security. It’s…...

Venus in Taurus Quotes: You Appreciate the Physical World as No Other Sign Can

If you place an obsessive value on comfort in social situations, it may result in withholding possessions from others. This deprives you both of the benefits of sharing your Taurus talents for accumulating material things. Repressing the obligation to share your belongings leads to a lack of confidence in your ability to acquire more material goods for yourself. At certain times, you might hold back your special sensitivities to the tactile, sensual part of life due to feeling unable to…...

The 9 Dangers of Astrology

Tracy Marks’ amazing work, published in The Astrology of Self-Discovery, is a primer on how to avoid the misuses of astrology, and it is really insightful. I discovered, to my dismay, that I was guilty of each and every one of these 9 dangers. The author says that “We astrology students and astrologers tend to become overly identified with our art. Many of us are obsessive, even fanatical with our use of the ephemeris. We define ourselves in terms of…...

Venus in Gemini Quotes: The Gift of Light-Heartedness Cheers Others

By placing an obsessive value on quick wit in social situations, you may unknowingly withhold from others your special ability for adding lightness and open communication. When you neglect listening to others’ ideas, you might feel a distinct lack of confidence in communicating with them at all. Indulging in flightiness in social relationships may result in a feeling of lack of worth in yourself or others. When you use your talent for communication to manipulate, to deceive, or to create…...

Transiting Neptune in the 8th House Death: Sad Beautiful Tragic

This chart case was particularly heartbreaking since it was unsolved and concerned a young woman who passed in an unusual way. Patricia E. Smith, an American nurse, died in an unexplained mystery. Her body was discovered in the bathtub on May 5, 1978, during a heat wave, and her car had disappeared. Because the corpse was too decayed for a comprehensive investigation to determine the cause of death, the Coroner determined that she died on June 29 or 30. When…...

Water Types: Cruel and Narrow Minded in Their Judgements of Friends

Reading Marie-Louise von Franz’s writings on Pscychologiclal Typing drew my attention to this particular topic. While Water-types may be capable of forming moral judgments about others based on their cold behaviour or the impression they get from them, I feel that they’re also capable of empathising with others and explaining why they may have behaved in a certain manner toward them. When we are of the element (Water) in question, however, it might be hard to relate to this since…...

Venus in Cancer Quotes: A Mix of the Cosy and the Ideal Could Be Pretty

Kindness, sympathy, the expression of true love and affection, and a high level of emotion, are characteristic. A powerful protective instinct can at times create a claustrophobic atmosphere within a relationship. A tendency to look nostalgically to the past is also frequent, and this may need conscious correction if the subject is not to reach stalemate due to his or her fear of progressive changes. Killing with kindness and moodiness are sometimes present; and the need for a secure relationship…...

The Grand Trine: Sleeping Beauty

It is commonly believed that Grand Trines will cause you to become apathetic. Astrologer Bill Tierney discovered, through the use of chart analysis, that even though the Grand Trine might be beneficial to certain people, he is of the opinion that it could also hinder their potential and that, in some cases, it may be a struggle to develop self-discipline over the long term. The real danger comes into play when the Grand Trine either slows down or completely prevents…...
