ElsaElsa » Is Anything Absolute?

August 29th, 2014 @ 8:30 am by ElsaElsa

penniesAbsolute
noun
1.
PHILOSOPHY
a value or principle that is regarded as universally valid or that may be viewed without relation to other things.

I came across something recently, that made realize how resistant people are the anything that is stated as an absolute.  They want wiggle room. They want options. They want their circumstances to set them apart, so a rule won’t apply in their case.

After spending several weeks in Cancer’s cozy, quiet and watery home, it was time for Mercury to wring out his wings and seek the brilliant, bustling, vitality of the Sun.

Mick Jagger - Mercury in LeoMick Jagger – Mercury in Leo

From the moment he crossed into Leo, Mercury felt an immediate urge to polish his wings, clear his throat and teach the rest of the zodiac a thing or two about showmanship – from center stage of course. You see, whenever the planet of communications takes up residence in the sign of confidence, creative self-expression and drama, the song never ends, the acoustics are loud and the visual effects are over the top.

Likewise, while Mercury is here we are encouraged to express our creativity in some way. Those of us with literary or artistic talent may come to know Mercury as a muse …

satori on ElsaElsa » Weekend Love Forecast

August 29th, 2014 @ 6:30 am by satori on ElsaElsa

stageI look at that Virgo Sun, Pisces Neptune opposition and I can’t stop thinking of Jay and Silent Bob. I was going to say I apologize if you don’t know what I’m talking about, but much as I love them, I apologize either way. “Fifteen bucks, little man…” Let’s just say, this weekend you’ve got to balance the down to earth concerns of life, the details and service, with compassion and spirit and escapism (wacked-outedness).

Venus enters Virgo on September 5th, putting love, money and self-esteem under the microscope. Venus in Virgo asks “What’s wrong and how can I fix it?” Part of this is the desire to be of service, but it’s also the … Continue reading →

I took the long way around when deciding which artist to feature today. Should it be Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (born 29 August 1780) French portrait painter and sketcher of the great and good – and bad – and wealthy tourists in 19th century Rome? Or Paul Kane (3 September 1810), Irish-born Canadian artist and intrepid traveller of the frozen wastes of Canada, sketching and recording…

Astropost » Virgo astrologer Edith Wangemann

August 29th, 2014 @ 6:29 am by Astropost

Edith Wangemann was born August 29, 1917 in Germany. Together with her husband, and after his death alone, she practiced and studied astrology. She was married to an astrologer (Helmuth Wangemann). A picture shows that he knew Reinhold Ebertin. I have no idea how they made a living.

Astro.com mentions the couple’s scientific approach. In her chart this might be mirrored by the position of…

ElsaElsa » Killing Your Life(style)

August 28th, 2014 @ 12:11 pm by ElsaElsa

road spikesRecently I worked with a young woman, wrestling with the possibility of pulling the plug on her entire life.   Do you know what I’m talking about?

I’m talking about a person who is seen as this or that…a stable person. A moral person. A devoted wife.  But then they come to believe, or to actually see that their entire life is a lie.

As a counseling Astrologer, when writing about synastry, which surveys relationship potential and compatibility  between two people (as suggested by their birth charts), one of my main responsibilities is to be an “opener of doors” and an interpreter of potentials and possibilities. No narrative between two individuals is a static, fixed one.

Advancing the art of synastry requires creativity, and a  far-seeing telescopic lens devoid of the “by rote” recitation of familiar and stale scenarios which couldn’t revive themselves even using the most powerful set of defibrillators.

In addressing issues surrounded by compatibility, our birth charts serve as a basis, foundation or a tool.  Then, the people breathe life into it, catapulting themselves off the paper into real-time, as to honor and support the unfolding human being.

Let’s take a journey into the realm of the Moon and Venus

ElsaElsa » Deeply Self-Protective (In The Blood)

August 27th, 2014 @ 1:26 pm by ElsaElsa

Gustave_Courbet_self_portraitI was reading about how a particular activity increases the risk of a devastating disorder. I was always repulsed by the activity. As it turns out, I am genetically predisposed to disorder.

I was repulsed, before I knew of my predisposition. I wonder now, if I might be deeply self-protective. Could this knowledge run through my veins?

candleWednesday morning the Moon is void at the end of Virgo, making no new aspects till it changes sign. It still holds orb of relaxing conjunction with sign ruler Mercury, and Mercury is just past exact sextile with the Mars-Saturn conjunction. It’s a good time for contemplation and assimilation of what has already occurred. Milk it for all it’s worth, in your mind. Let your body tell you how you’re reacting to current reality. Let your mood be another gauge. (…)
