Mythogical Niobe is known to astrologers as Niobe, the grieving mother archetype, and she tonight ranges at 26Ari12 as the announcement extending the mission in Afghanistan for America’s warriors an extra month has come and is, one assumes, part of Bush’s desire to increase US troop numbers in the country we’ve given back to the Taliban as if the Soviets never learned anything in that stark region of the globe.
Niobe in Aries, sign of the god of war, Ares – or as we call him these days: Mars.
Here are two Martians on the world stage we’ve learned to suspect:
‘Gaze into my eyes…comrade’….Bush and Putin played disputin’ cousins on TV and yet…the US undermined the Soviets in Afghanistan and you know how that turned out for Russian soldiers, massacred as they retreat…that 25,000 captives were kidnapped is hardly ever mentioned–thus Russia has their “separatists” to fight and commit false flag ops upon when it suits the Kremlin’s purposes.
Ahhh, true motives! We’re in the final weeks of the Feb 7 2008 ‘Unmasking Eclipse’…”18AQ” season so hidden motivations are apt to be revealed once again…at least until Aug 1 or so, when the next Solar Eclipse Series occurs.
Bush’s ignore-Aghanistan military faux pas is a good example of this administration’s tendency toward misdirected energy applications. Yet with aims and motives beyond the ordinary (and which are kept secret from the mere mortal masses) I continue to assert that the Bush Gang is not as shoot-themselves-in-the-foot as the Yosemite Sams they portray. Being touted as incompetent, stupid and/or forgetful by your media enablers and minions has been a half-decent cover for the varmints, I suppose.
You may wish to read about some possible election scenarios…pre- or during (or in December as in Travesty 2000)…for the upcoming US prez and other elections plus other brilliant articles by Morgan Wolf of Morgan’s Musings:
Saturn opposite Uranus–past vs future/the Middle East ~ esp Israel vs Palestine/new methods vs traditional ways)…November promises to turn up the heat under a cauldron simmering with bubbles of sulphur and ash in time for Jan 2009, and with forces of nature not to be left off the list, sad to say.
Plus, we always think of the sign Scorpio when autumn rolls around…with sign-ruler the lusty, testosterone-infused Mars rushing in (often foolishly) and dark puppet-string yanking Pluto rumbling in the background, the secret hand hiding buried treasures of untold wealth, and a web of associates whose secret motives are fast becoming impossible – or unnecessary – to disguise.
Financially the upcoming August Eclipses–Solar Aug 1, Lunar Aug 16–may affect markets worldwide but are esp focused in America considering that her ‘pals’ abroad–Barclays Capital, the Royal Bank of Scotland, and Fortis–are in process of deserting us…which is, I protest, part of their plans all along.
You’ll find August Eclipse articles in my Pages list, if you haven’t checked them out yet…you may was well consider possibilities for as J.P. Morgan said:
“Millionaires don’t use Astrology, billionaires do.” Yuh. It’s all about cycles.
Therefore, it’s hardly possible that Wall Street gentry and others haven’t planned the current meltdown for their own domination-of-the-world purposes. A New Order has been called for by certain social tinkerers (my ‘nice’ name for them) these last several decades. Too bad most people never paid it any mind until now as the financial train wreck approaches in the rearview mirror.

And here’s an article esp related to my financial Eclipse fuss above:
~:~ So now I’m sending out wishes for a Happy 232nd Independence Day, America! in case WordPress and my tech gremlins tussle wildly tomorrow and I can’t return as soon as I’d like…
My friend, astrologer Alex D’Atria, has sent me an excellent link to her blog, ‘Modern Astrology’ with articles by and interviews with astrologer Mark Andrew Holmes.
Mark uses many more asteroids and other unusual points in his chart delineations than this particular and reluctant astrologer could ever have time for, but their keywords are certainly of interest for honing in on the meanings of planetary placements and indications in any chart.
Here’s Alex’s link: http://modern-astrology.blogspot.com
where you’ll find Mark’s take on the Nov 4, 2008 election and on candidate John McCain in his article, “McCain and the 2008 Presidential Election” (entry: June 24, 2008.) A few Sabian Symbols are given as well.
The several asteroids which Mark uses all have their keywords in tow so not to fret if you’ve not heard of them all…for instance, who knew there was a “Roachapproach”!!! (Keyword: repulsive.) Did you? ;p
Mark provides here an extensive list of asteroid meanings, if you’re interested in their keywords and phrases along with their zodiacal positions for the election.
Then scroll on down for a great 2006 interview with Mark on his use of these descriptive magnifiers–the whys and the wherefores–and his views on America’s political fortunes.
You’ll also find a Synastry (relationship) chart combo, the 2008 election chart, and McCain’s natal chart there as well, so check it out this astrological smorgasbord if you so desire!
It was during NPR’s 5 pm News program that a fuller picture was revealed to me concerning the effects on our markets and food supply from the tragic midwest flooding of the Mississippi River, the Mighty Mississippi.
Yes, I knew it was bad but didn’t realize that there are currently 100 or so barges stranded, rail lines washed out or closed, and other gathering storms of depletion and loss on the clouded horizon for America, and eventually for other parts of the world which receive from our nation’s agricultural largesse.
That the asteroid Ceres is associated with nurturing, nutrition, grains, and security issues is well-known so perhaps you may wish to peruse a brief article on my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington:
where you’ll find a second publish of today’s US Venus Return chart which you may also view here in the post just below along with Venus Return details.
Farmers, agricultural workers, transit companies, grocers, and anyone who likes to chow down will be adversely affected by this natural disaster made worse by man’s lack of levee maintenance and other neglectful causes. As we know, Congress just handed Bush more millions for Iraq, but provides precious little for America’s infrastructure needs ad nauseum–and we see yet another result of their sorriness.
(And while I’m thinking about food supply dearth: has anyone considered that the mysterious honey bee disappearances–hive collapse disorder–may be related somehow to genetically engineered crops? I’m no scientist, but I was just wondering. What do you think?)
For Old Times’ Sake:
If you’re an American perhaps you learned to spell the river’s name the same way I did:
M-i-crooked letter crooked letter-i-crooked letter crooked letter i-humpback humpback i…and it just keeps rollin’ along…Old Man River, that is. But it seems now that Old Man Saturn’s times, they are a-changin’…and how.
Certainly the current Neptune (water; flood damage; dissolution)-Chiron (the wounding)-North Node (destiny of the masses; the public) trio is making itself deeply felt in America while traveling in the collective sign of Aquarius–the Waterbearer, and my prayers are with the good people of the midwest during this difficult time.
These days gold-hoarding Midas hangs out around 8 Gemini so I’m looking at Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol book, ‘An Astrological Mandala’ for details on our “Second Gilded Age” of Robber Baron Midasses, the obscenely wealthy class which has imposed upon those underneath them on the golden ladder of life the income inequality in America which now widens to Soup Line dimensions.
PBS’s ‘Bill Moyers’ Journal’ yesterday addressed these issues and called it an idee fixe which the power elite cling to so tightly (tightwads) concerning the ‘free’ market system which they can’t seem to think their way out of.
Why should they when their amassing of wealth stokes a rosy illusion of liberation from the collective masses–a heady motive for imagining themselves above the rabble!
Wasn’t it Einstein who said you can’t think your way out of a problem with the same thinking that created the problem? But these greedy, power hungry culprits don’t want a way out and they prefer the rest of us simmering in the cauldron, thanks. And dissolving of boundaries–economic, national, social–is part of their much-touted one-world government intrigues where their dreams of world domination thrive.
Barack Obama’s mentions of America’s ongoing class warfare don’t make it happen–the power elite do, then they cringe when someone points it out! As well they should. For glorified ’brethren’ they sure don’t care at all for their fellow man.
Yet Some People the world over are trying to better their positions bwo labor unions…
‘ “8Gem”…”Aroused Strikers Surround A Factory”…keynote: The disruptive power of the ambitious mind upon the organic wholeness of human relationship.
The first stage dealt with oil (’6Gem’: “Workmen Drilling for Oil”…keynote: The avidity for knowledge which ensures wealth and power…AMBITION.) Now we see in this new symbol a pictorial indication of what the use of this intellect-generated energy inevitably leads to: industrial unrest and violence.
As man manages to rape the earth in order to demonstrate his power and intensify his pleasures and his sense of proud mastery, conflicts and disruptive processes are inevitably initiated. The type of power generated by the analytical intellectual faculties is essentially disruptive; it is based on the destruction of matter, and invites egocentric hoarding and spoliation–and, in general, privileges of one kind or another.
This leads to a REVOLT AGAINST PRIVILEGES.’ #
Old King Midas’ egocentric hoarding will get the best of him one day–if not on this earth, then on the coming New and Improved version because threading a needle with a rich camel will be an impossibility in the sweet bye’n'bye!
~:~ note: you may wish to see my Pages list for the Reaganomics Eclipse if you’ve hithertofore missed the trickle down nonsense. ‘Trickle down’/voodoo economics only works when the corporate elite plow some of their billion-dollar breaks from the US taxpayers BACK into the economy they skimmed it from.
Instead, recent years have brought downsizing, outsourcing, and the continued selling out of America along with apt Capitol Hill enabling…we see their NWO plans in action similar to Hitler’s amassing of wealth in the 30s–and the economic hourglass tilts again in the elite’s favor toward totalitarian imperialism. #
Today Mercury went Rx in Gemini and you may wish to check out a fresh Page which I’ve written with a particularly squinty eye toward the candidacy of Senator Hillary Clinton and Mercury’s effects on her natal horoscope:
Is Hillary playing Macha in the race, the fast-running Celtic goddess of Auriga, the Charioteer?
If you look at my Pages listed in the sidebar, you’ll find an entry with the image and a few notes concerning McCain’s Secondary Progressions for April 2008.

Friday UPDATE 4.11: neglected to add that Sec Moon is conjunct Sec Juno, the wife. If Cindy finds out he’s messin’ around (and I’m not predicting) then ILL will be only one of the things she is.
UPDATE July 24, 2011
This is an update I regret having to make, for while I was out of town this weekend, some very sad events occurred, a horrendous massacre in Oslo, Norway, and the death of Amy Winehouse whose Sun-to-Midheaven natal chart you see below.
There are several difficult transits just now to the talented singer’s natal planets with ruler-of-needles and other sharp instruments Mars being most active: a square to her natal Sun and Mercury, and oppositions to natal Neptune and to n Moon (though her precise hour of birth is unknown, her Jupiter-ruled Sagittarian Moon near drug-using Neptune during the 24-hour period of her birth date is too descriptive to ignore. So Mars opposes natal Moon and Neptune, if not last Friday, then recently.
Thus a midpoint picture is formed…
Moon/Neptune oppo tr Mars: nervous troubles through unnatural practices; weakened natural powers in relation to the sex life; irritability; danger of infection. (She’s been plagued by emphysema, as you know, along with drug addiction in which alcohol must be included.)
Two other midpoint pictures are formed by a transiting planet which is often associated with loss, restriction (of air to breathe?), or death: Saturn, now in Libra. And though we might be tempted to think, “Uh-oh, her Saturn Return brought lessons she ignored, age 27″ when we hear of a person’s death around that age, the timing is off in this case.
For Amy Winehouse was born with Saturn in very early Scorpio and so her tragic death occurred prior to her Saturn Return (as did Janis Joplin’s at age 27; see ‘Nodal Half-Return’ below.)
And Scorpio is a sign of drugs, along with Pisces, though Scorpio often prefers the intervenous variety.
The two midpt pictures formed by tr Saturn are:
Natal Sun/Pluto = tr Saturn: physical impediment; restriction; separation by a Higher Power.
N Mercury/Pluto = tr Saturn: nervous irritation through overwork; exposure to heavy and bitter attacks.
(Note: as usual with midpt pictures, any, all, or none may apply; Mars squaring and opposing natal planets can indeed support the potential for ‘attacks’ though whether from the results of disease, a bad batch of heroin, or from an opponent or opponents (Mars in dualistic Gemini, sign also of siblings) within the environment I cannot say especially until and if more details come out.)
Supporting a theme of separation is the factor of a Nodal Half-Return (tr NN to natal SN, and vice versa, a time when relationships not strong enough for current stresses may suddenly break apart–or, it seems, the thread of life may be broken irreparably.)
Transit Pluto 5Cap37 Rx also makes a difficult aspect to n Mars in Leo, a sesquisquare (interlocked squares, 135 degr, which may have health connotations) showing complex circumtances which in the case of the singer, may relate directly to drug use (Pluto, ruled by Saturn.)
Also making three sesquisquares to n Moon, Sun, and Mercury is expansive Jupiter in Taurus (sign of the throat) so her recent performances that were confused and slovenly (sorry, I had to type it) can be described by Jupiter’s tendency to overdo things–too much of a good thing can turn into too much of a bad thing and lead to death.
Actually, tr Jupiter of ‘slippery slope’ fame is often active at times of death (as is the tr Moon) but I prefer to be unspecific since I don’t have Ms. Winehouse’s correct times of birth or death.)
Tr Neptune 00Pis20 Rx (Pisces, sign of negative escapism) opposes n Venus (venal; veins) so it’s been a time of jealousy, revenge, and/or a dissolution of relationships, values, and possibly of material possessions.
Well, there are more factors to consider here but I confess that this is an update I never wished to write at all and I’m feeling melancholy thinking of the music world’s loss. Personally I shall sorely miss such a vibrant, sultry voice being in this old world as I suspect you will, too, if you are reading this.
As for her psyche, my suspicion is that Amy Winehouse couldn’t believe in herself or in her own existence, a temdency made worse by her natal Moon out-of-bounds, a planetary ocndition which, if the Moon is all that’s OOBs, results in a faulty connection with Mother and by extention, with the rest of the world. Whatever her emotional demons (Moon conjunct Neptune), Amy Winehouse is now at peace, and my heart goes out to her family and friends, and to all her many saddened fans.
My original post begins here, sans any edits at all:
Amy Winehouse was born Sept 14, 1983 in an area of London, England at some point during those 24 hours…aka “birth time unverified” or “time unknown.”
Yet natal horoscopes or birth charts (or ‘maps’) must be set for some hour + minute so often when considering the natal charts of famous folk, whether artists, musicians, political figures–whomever you place under your microscope–Sunrise or *Sun-to-Midheaven (the pinnacle of Public Status in the chart) is in view.
In the case of Amy Winehouse, a Sun-to-Mc chart is pictured here and which seemed a ‘given’ when I saw that asteroid Terpsichore was rising in the chart! Music is playing, and her talents are genuine and inherited to some degree…see her Moon near artistic Neptune. During the 24-hour period of her birthdate, Moon is near enough slow-moving Neptune to cause me to add a Moon/Neptune conjunction to her credit…see what you think of Moon conj Neptune:
imaginative, creative, and emotionally sensitve, there is otherworldly romance in this pairing. Both Moon and Neptune represent unstable energies, and with Neptune’s linkage with negative escapists tendencies, there is psychic receptivity along with a love of daydreaming.
Moon/Neptune conjunctions are the “patsy for the needy” duo esp when conjoined.
In ‘Oken’s Complete Astrology’ Alan Oken calls this aspect between these very feminine influences “The Visionary” OR “The Escapist.” What did I tell ya?
Sadly, the needy people she encounters bring difficulties into her life (as they could for anyone) and usually tend to blame her when all their problems are not magically solved (by Amy.) Emotional disappointments may follow on one or both sides as the afflicted who do feel raised up soon desert her when things improve for them. She is left alone when they fancy they don’t need her anymore. This may have been her story until her Blake and their marriage. And now?
Well, as you know, Blake is now incarcerated (which is also a form of ‘leaving’ her alone.)
Moon/Neptune conjs indicate high idealism and an ability to self-mesmerize (a habit which makes it impossible to know with whom you are partnering. Alcohol and other drugs add to the tendency and to the misunderstandings. The thud later on must be deafening, I should imagine.)
Others may find it impossible to live up to Ms. Winehouse’s dreams of them for her expectations are sky-bound. Amy feels disoriented when meeting new people so she tends to characterize them according to her own way of thinking. This also causes the wake-up-later-on feeling that she never knew the person who has disillusioned her–the truth is, she didn’t because of pre-conceived illusions about their true characters.
These Moon/Neptune traits may be experienced by any or all of us even without the conj–bwo transits, progressions, etc–how we react is up to us. Stronger people have defenses against what is actually intrusions from elementals unless a forceful defense is put up psychically against them. Ms. Winehouse has her demons as do most of us but hers are consuming her as we watch. Personally, I’d rather watch and hear Terpsichore SING than self-destruct, how about you?
My hope is that her pharmacist Mother, sister…whoever really cares about Amy will do what they can to keep her safe from herself. It isn’t easy, I know, esp with Chiron opposite rebellious Uranus, for drugs are a grave danger with this ferocious aspect’s penchant for chaos and burning out. (‘Chiron’ by Barbara Hand Clow.)
This conj is one of the significators for adrenal exhaustion due to repeated shocks and upheavals and with Moon (mother; family; the past; the physical body) conj leaky, drippy Neptune, Amy’s infancy and childhood may be at the base of the emotional bottomless pit at the bottom of her glass.
Must mosey–there’s a lot more info on this complex and driven Amy Winehouse lady of such talent, but I must return to complete this entry as time permits.
Next we’ll take a closer look at her natal Chiron, ‘the Key’ and ‘the Blindspot,’ plus, transiting Saturn-opposite-Uranus will be triggering her natal Sun (ego; purpose; essence; adult self) near the end opf 2008, and we’ll talk about these sharp contacts which could have health connotations (although one hopes not) or indicate relationship breaks.
And while we’re at it, we’ll have a small, discreet peep next time at her creative, frisky Venus/Mars conjunction in romantic Leo…Rrrraorrrrwrrr-r-r-r!
*Astrology Note: Sun to the top of the chart, or Midheaven (MC) is the WHY? Point, the Aspirations/Goals Point of any chart yet either a Sunrise or a Sun Culminating chart may give ego recognition as well as creative information when you’re snooping through the stars.
Update April 2008–Amy on Richest List! http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20195377,00.html
UPDATE May 17, 2008: on Amy’s natal Venus/Mars conjunction in romance-loving Leo…this shows a strong desire nature as we would expect, for Venus natally shows what we attract and are attracted to, and lusty Mars shows what we desire. In this case they are one in the same.
Venus conj Mars doesn’t mind making the first move in love relationships and may be considered pushy by some. There is an eagerness for social contact here but with a lack of discrimination about the types of people she associates with. Fulfillment is gained by working with the public in some creative way along with co-workers (bandmates) and this helps avoid the dreaded boredom. Frequent drug use may be part of the boredom-avoidance syndrome as well.
This conjunction gives her a “live wire” quality which is very useful onstage, but perhaps not conducive to long term relationships…still, she loves crises generated by close human encounters.
It also indicates an attraction to aggressive, active, and amorous people but if they try to exercise control over her, it’s a no-go, for Amy won’t tolerate anyone trying to restrict her. This is probably obvious from her “No no no” to rehab, and other law-unto-herself behaviours.
Yes, Venus/Mars conjunction folk expect others to make many concessions to them while they don’t make them without a lot of thought, and then reluctantly, for doing so interferes with their sense of personal freedom. Entering rehab facilities would definitely do that, wouldn’t it?
This is the “love ‘em and leave ‘em” aspect which can cause potential mates to seek elsewhere if they’re wanting a binding relationship, and her demands for attention, approval, and applause are like a lioness who rules the pride. In fact, idolization is okay by her, so keep it up, world.
Leo is, of course, the sign of the entertainer, and having Venus/Mars in Leo gives her a generous and warm nature which helps explain some of the massive appeal of Amy Winehouse…that, and her voice and talent easily doing the rest!
Here’s an Amy Update from Jan 12, 2009 concerning her cavorting and Blake’s divorcing:
Now this is unusual–WordPress just ‘lost’ the article I’ve spent a hour or so on concerning tomorrow’s hoe-down in Houston. And I have no time to recreate it all so here’s a brief summary:
Barack Obama is favored by the Mars-Pluto opposition on the 00Can-ooCap axis triggering his natal Venus–lady voters causing a landslide, and at 7:00 pm cst Obama’s natal Virgoan Mars is rising along with US natal Neptune so I doubt his followers are seeing him clearly–his ”rock star” status remains an asset for him. It’s almost as if an astrologer had been counseling him for he’s been able to use it well.
You know that Jupiter, now 16Cap13, is closing in for his Jupiter Return (reward cycle) which will perfect for him on Jan 9, 2009–conj US Inaugural Sun and on Jan 20, 2009, Mercury as well.
John McCain’s Lunar Return is this evening–Mar 3–and indicates exhaustion and possible health concerns–Mars 29Gem51 is inconjunct his natal Moon in the Return chart–so his weekend break was probably much needed. And Lunar Return ASC has old man Saturn in Virgo rising as well.
Mercury 17AQ12 (the orator; the young person) is traveling with experience-based, wounded Chiron 17AQ54–and with asteroid Icarus who flew too near the sun (and Icarus is associated with assassinations) so these three are triggering the current Solar Eclipse–the “Unmasking” Eclipse (see Sidebar at left for more details.)
There are more factors I want to mention but I’ll publish this tidbit before I’m crashed out again…thanks for understanding.
As you see, Hannah Hollywood is ready for her close-up and just as squished into her designer gown as the other Red Carpet sashayers will be come this Sunday eve.
Picking up a copy of USA Today this afternoon, I found a list of the top grossing films of 2007. In order they are:
1. Spider-Man 3 ($336.5)
2. Shrek the Third ($322.7)
3. Transformers ($319.2)
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End ($309.4–at sequel’s end?)
5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (292.0)
Now you know that the Oscars aren’t supposed to be awarded based on box office receipts and this year that’s no problemo whatsoever…most people haven’t seen most nominated films due to their dark themes and the fact that many people have less discretionary spending to eke out of their tattered budgets.
(Same with the grousing, poor-us music industry–wake up oh ye billionaire music moguls and smell the empty Starbucks cups–in the stores that are being closed as I type.)
So here’s the list of this year’s nominees for Best Film in case you’ve been studying, working, or something and have missed ”the nods” so far–your luck just ran out!
1. Juno (astrologically and mythologically, ‘the wife’ archetype–only film to gross over 100 mill so far–$125.5)
2. No Country for Old Men ($61.3)
3. Atonement ($47.9)
4. Michael Clayton ($47.8–we’re watching this one this evening so that should add a few pennies to their offshore accounts, poor old things; also rented Gone Baby Gone)
5. There Will Be Blood ($31.9–hate the title but understand that Daniel Day Lewis is excellent as usual–note to Paramount Vantage: money would trickle in faster with a less offensive title–doesn’t the real world have enough flowing? Not enough water, too much blood, imho)
So there ya go–be there or be not-there on Sunday evening, but why not? You deserve a break and Hannah will be lurking about the Red Carpet all squooshed into her…mystery-designer gown so keep your eye out for her!

Now–how about some Astrology of the Oscars (chart set for 8:00 pm pst, Hollywood, CA)?
Rising is the sign of beauty and balance, Libra 5:07, with Midheaven 5Can35, conj US natal Jupiter (Sibly) at the “Gamebirds feathering their nests” degree. Tres appropriate esp since they’ll be decked out in fine feathers with jewels on loan from fine designers, and Cancer is ruled by the Moon (publicity; the public.)
Asteroid JUNO is in 3rd house 23Sag05 with 3rd cusp 3Sag09, and Jupiter is in a promising and creative sextile with Uranus 17Pis55 (6th house)–an optimistic, hopeful aspect for this ‘lucky break’ combo of planets.
Chart-ruler, the lovely lady Venus 9AQ15 is in 5th house of pleasurable, creative pursuits and applying to conjunction with Mercury 10AQ12, planet of orators, speeches, and young persons.
Neptune, planet of film and screen is at 22AQ15 and conj asteroid Lilith, associated with movie star glamour. The artistic and intensely attractive Venus-Uranus midpoint is conj NN (link with the public) so we have:
Venus-Uranus = NN: intense feelings seek out same in others.
Venus-Uranus is also conj US n Moon (the public–Sibly chart): sudden excitement in fulfilment of one’s needs in love, sex, the arts; new ideas for a new future. The NN–North Node of the Moon–being conj US n Moon shows the mass appeal and publicity of this event–and is involved in an AIR Grand Trine with Mars and NN.
An AIR Grand Trine has a natural inclination to conceptualize and create on an abtract level, doesn’t much appreciate one-to-one contacts, but it has lots of charisma on the one-to-many level–sounds perfect for Hollywood, doesn’t it?
Planet of desire, Mars 27Gem37 is still out-of-bounds and in 9th house of foreigners, so foreign men should be on display (by satellite, perhaps?), while the Moon is rising 22Lib52, conj a couple of lucky stars, Arcturus (‘a different approach’) and Spica (‘potential for brilliance’) so it will be a glowing night for shining in Hollywood!
Sexy Sappho is in 7th house, 13Ari00, squaring Jupiter 14Cap44 in 4th house, and the Mercury-Venus conj is focal point of the intensely sexual Uranus-Pluto midpoint, so we have a couple of pictures:
Uranus-Pluto = Mercury: forcing individuality into focus; new ideas, new plans for a new perspective.
Uranus-Pluto = Venus: creative activity; desire to bring the new into art; a conquest for love. (Watch your hearts, America, it’s only a crush!)
Chiron 17AQ12, also in 5th house, is triggering the Solar Eclipse of early February, at the “A Man Unmasked” degree as the tragi-comedy masks of ancient Greek theater update their significance in the filmy, illusive, and delusional Neptunian world of Hollywood, for Chiron adds a “Be Here NOW” experiential flavor to this one-time production, the Oscars.
So I hope you will Be Here Now on Sunday evening and that you enjoy rooting for your favorite films and actors (I liked Eastern Promises and Viggo’s gutsy perfomance) or perhaps you’ll use the Oscar presentations as an opportunity to catch up with what’s on display at a theater near you!
Now if some fabulous jewelry designer will just loan Hannah a diamond necklace…
