The recent changes around here have prompted me to dialogue with various people about things I never thought I’d speak to them about. I’m talking about my husband quite a bit, where he’s usually on the periphery. Specifically, I’ve been called to outline some of his idiosyncrasies, or his unconventional thinking and I realize in this process, how glad and grateful I am that he is the way he is.

This polarity is the service/sacrifice duo. In extreme expression Virgo can be hyper-critical and Pisces hyper-gullible, but we seldom see the extremes expressed entirely since all people have many variables in their charts. Virgo equates to the sixth house, so planets in that house will have Virgo energy overlaid; Pisces is associated with the twelfth house, and any planets there will take on a Piscean flavor.
Virgo has an innate drive to perfection and has a hard time overlooking what is “flawed.” Since this is impartial, people with an abundance of this expression will turn it inward, as well, so we also see a great deal of self-flagellation, too. It, along with Capricorn, is a classic low self-esteem sign. Virgo energy is very aware of its own short-comings. The urge to be useful is strong. There is no compunction about …
I am working on the content for the Uranus square Pluto workshop and I can’t quite stay in my head to do it. I’d like to be a clinical person who could consider a transit like this in way that is detached but I just can’t manage it.
I see people’s lives being moved by forces beyond their control. I see things unfolding that will wind up having enormous consequences. I am talking about the cracks in the foundation I have written about for years now. They are so easy to deny, initially.

Traditionally, trines and sextiles are considered, “good”, squares and oppositions, “bad” or at the very least, “challenging”. Conjunctions are judged on a case by case basis.
For example, a conjunctions to Jupiter or Venus (considered benefices) are “good”, conjunctions to Saturn or Mars (considered malefic), “bad”.
You have to start somewhere and this is a likely place to start but I would not take this information too literally because the idea there are “no bad aspects” in astrology is more than a sign of our politically correct times.

Uranus-Pluto, the US and China.
I’ll come back now to the US and what I think may be a looming political crisis.
So the US is a couple of years behind Europe with the Uranus-Pluto square, as our Suns tend to be around 9 or 10 of the cardinals, whereas the US is at 13 degrees. So we are in the middle of our crisis now, an economic crisis that has political roots, in the sense of Europe having attempted monetary union without the necessary political union.
The US Uranus-Pluto is still a couple of years off peaking, but I think we had a strong indicator of what it could be about when America had its credit rating downgraded for the first time ever last year because the politicians couldn’t agree on a budget. The credit agencies …
I have long seen that people who do not express their Mars energy (their anger and ambition) tend to become depressed. This makes sense as raw male energy by it’s nature is overt. If it is repressed it can do nothing but pervert and most commonly this manifests as depression. Mars likes to go and do, win and conquer and when people are depressed they tend to feel lethargic and want to sleep all day so you see the correlation.

Busy today – this is from 2008.
Dina writes on Blows The Attraction Theory All To Hell:
You’re not intellectual, Elsa? You seem pretty smart/wise to me!
Dina, thank you but I am telling you I am least developed on the intellectual level and one of the points Claire-France made. She explained that I had developed this function to the extent I have via writing which caused people to come along, read my writing and then mistake me as some kind of intellectual!
So I put my writing on the Internet and next thing you know, people like HQ are writing me thinking I must be some kind of brilliant and when they encounter reality the next question sounds like this:
“What are you, some kind of idiot savant?”
