The Opposition

In astrology, an opposition is when two planets are “opposite” each other in a chart, which means they are at an angle of 180 degrees from each other. The two sides are made up of the elements (Water and Earth or Air and Fire), which naturally feed off of each other and are dependent upon one another on a number of different levels. Usually, one planet is owned, and the other planet is often felt as an opposing force outside,…

Jungian Psychology

Article by Noel Eastwood: When I read Stephen Arroyo’s Astrology, Karma and Transformation I immediately became hooked on psychological astrology. Here was an astrologer who understood an individual’s personal life problems by locating the conflicts in their natal chart. By knowing our client’s individual conflict or karmic lesson, astrologers can apply knowledge of psychology to guide them to freedom. Conflict resides within us all and is seen by its projection onto our outside world especially upon those that we have…

Astrology: Liar, Liar Pants on Fire

How can the birth chart of a person reveal whether they are a liar, a fibber, a cheater, or just someone who bends the truth? All Mercury aspects in astrology do, in my opinion, show a tendency for lying, but they all do it in different ways. People lie for a variety of reasons, not all of which are aimed to serve their own interests. Some people have to lie in order to survive, while others do it to appear more…

Moon in Pisces: You Rang

In the book Spiritual Astrology by Jan Spiller and Karen McCoy, the Moon in Pisces is described as possibly having lived previous lives alone in monasteries, convents, or other such settings, and basically had very sheltered former existences. The Lunar Piscean is enticed into an eternal flight from the harsh realities of life, and some of these flights from reality are pleasant and harmless. It takes them away from what is often called the “drab, dull, and mundane world” and gives them the…

Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune: Another Dose

The general flavour of the Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune conjunction has had me questioning its relation to current events. Here in the UK, we had a break-out of Swine Flu, and the biggest outbreak of measles in years. Astrologically, Chiron can be linked with physical problems of this magnitude. According to Liz Greene’s Barriers and Boundaries: The Horoscope and the Defences of the Personality: “Chiron is often linked with physical problems, of both an organic and functional nature. Bitterness and disillusionment…

America: Mercury-Pluto

This book, written by Liz Greene and titled Nostradamus: The Millennium and Beyond, provides astrological perspectives on many nations and events that have occurred across the globe via the translations of Nostradamus himself. The chart of America is discussed in considerable detail in the book, and the following is an excerpt of what the author had to say about the aspect of Mercury-Pluto in America’s birth chart. According to Dane Rudhyar’s chart of America: Perhaps one of the most significant…

Steven Forrest/Mars in Aquarius

The 3rd house associated with early schooling and our attitude and relationship with knowledge itself as well as the environment in which we live and work. It also represents our ability to communicate and express ourselves, as well as short journeys, siblings, and cousins. This area of the natal rules over all aspects of communication, including writing and speaking, and it includes all methods of conveying information. Steven Forrest is a professional astrologer from the United States. He is the…

Mutable Signs: The Astrology of Unusual Accidents:

I thought it would be interesting to look at the charts of people who died in strange ways and see if there are any astrological patterns that can be seen. Accidental deaths specifically can be caused by a wide range of things, such as self-inflicted gunshot wounds, unintended fires, and electrocution. What stood out the most in these studies is that people with the mutable zodiac signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are more almost certain to get into an accident.…
