Singer and composer Bob Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, yesterday, for changing the lives of his pubic. It was a special day for him and we can see that in the chart, transits and progressions. Jupiter is inconjunct progressed MC and Pluto trine progressed Venus, for example. But where is the career, where is the talent and were are the successes in the natal chart?

First…

AstroGeek » 2012: The Road Ahead

Meh. This Astro though, for realz…

Seriously, how intense was that Eclipse? I dont know about you guys, but it was like running straight into a brick wall over here at the Skywatch.

Glossing over the missteps completely, we look to the current challenge.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are about halfway through the year. No breaks are given between eclipses this time, as we have Venus Retrograde demanding our full attention while (F@$%^!) Mars in Virgo is squaring pretty much everything. I would say that you need to act totally serene and in control as everything explodes in your face, but that would be lying. Keep your head up, breathe and move forward as best you can. This is your show, nobody else’s.

Next up: Another Eclipse- only this time, it kicks you straight in the emotions.

Then: Uranus Square …

Just now, Julian Assange heard that he will be extradited from the U.K. to Sweden to face charges of sexual assault (see the Guardian). This news is reflected by a number of transits and progressions. They tell us about bad news for him. For example: the  progressed Midheaven is in the 3rd degree of Libra. That is inconjunct transit Neptune. Neptune is always confusing and with an inconjunct, you…

ElsaElsa » A Broad Overview Of Uranus In Aries

May 29th, 2012 @ 2:14 pm by ElsaElsa

“Time waits for no man.”  This phrase describes Uranus in Aries for me. We can expect things to happen very quickly during this transit.  Lives will change in a blink and if you’re moving slow yourself, or slow to process, this will have no effect.

I don’t say that to terrify people. This possibility has always existed. How many tragic car accidents are planned?  This energy exists in nature, but with Uranus in Aries, we’re going to see more events like this, that effect more people.

ElsaElsa » What Is A Transit?

May 29th, 2012 @ 8:15 am by ElsaElsa

Your natal chart is a map of where the planets were when you were born. It’s fixed. The planets then continue their orbit on a circular path.

A “transit” occurs when a planet in the sky moves into a position that hits a certain angle with one of your natal planets. When a planet in the sky is 90 degrees from your natal planet, it’s called a square. “Pluto is squaring my natal Moon.” When a planet in the sky is 180 degrees from a natal planet, that’s an opposition. “Jupiter is opposing my natal Mercury.” A transiting planet that is 120 degrees from a natal planet is called a trine, etc.

Most self-help books have about three ideas in them which are padded out with a lot of white space and bullet points. But there are a few which are absolutely brilliant. Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way has sold about a gazillion copies in the two decades not because it’s fashionable, or because it tells us something we want to hear, but because it works.

Cameron’s personal life has had it’s ups and downs. She comes from a privileged background, was briefly married to legendary film director Martin Scorsese and spent a few years in a drug-and-alcohol fog. But when the fog lifted she started to teach “creative unblocking”, and what is more, she sees it as a spiritual pathway.

For me, following this book day by day for weeks on end opened up my own creativity wonderfully. What’s more …

Today is a second Quarter Moon in Virgo which conjoined Mars in Virgo at 2:29AM EDT. While this aspect happened during the overnight hours, it usually means a very high energy time but with very little group cooperation. If you couldn’t sleep overnight, this might me the culprit. If the reason you couldn’t sleep is due to disagreements in a group setting, try to let the energy dissipate a bit and get some sleep with deep breathing and relaxation. It is temporary, no need to go all Rambo now, it’s the middle of the night.

Today The Virgo Moon Squares Venus in Gemini at 1:44PM EDT. Usually the Moon and Venus get along famously but this could on one hand cause some needless extravagance and spending and on the other hand be extremely beneficial depending on the transaction.

Will Smith

Libra Will Smith has been touring to promote the third Men in Black film, along with his wife, Jada, and daughter Willow. In a recent interview with People, Will expressed some trepidation about his daughter dating:

“When Willow does bring a boy home, I’m going to screen him and find out everything about him. And that’s going to happen when she’s 40, when she’s allowed to go…

I had lunch the other day with a well-respected and very experienced astrologer, who also writes. Our conversation was pretty intense since we’d never met before and we have a lot in common, especially when it comes to thinking about how to do good, authentic astrology.

We had to fit in a lot of ideas between the pierogi and the cheesecake.

Here are just three talking points.

Number One

WRA: “How do you feel about country charts?”

Me: “You mean like nativities for countries?”

WRA: “Yes, I’m always very dubious about those.”

I was a bit surprised. She writes a lot about politics and world affairs.

Me: “Why’s that?”

WRA: “How do we really know what time a country is born? Or even what day?”

Well, she’s right, of course. How do we know? And how do we choose the …

When you leave a relationship that you’ve heavily invested in, pain is pretty much unavoidable. A person tends to go over and over the details, asking themselves if there were anything else they could have done that might have brought about a different outcome. While this might be productive in some cases, in other cases it just feeds the agony.
