Astropost » 100 years ago World War I started

July 28th, 2014 @ 4:56 am by Astropost

One hundred years ago today, World War I started when Austria declared war at Servia. Here is the chart of that day (chosen time is noon) with the positions in the sky on November 11, 1918 (when the cease fire ended the tragic years). There is one aspect that I want to mention here: the narrow Saturn-Eris, twice.

When WW1 started, Saturn was square Eris.
When WW2 ended (cease fire), Saturn was…

ElsaElsa » On Being A Simple Person

July 27th, 2014 @ 1:32 pm by ElsaElsa

simple machineThis is to update this post – Why A Person’s Relationships Fail, Consistently. It seemed to create more questions then it answered. I apologize for this.

When I was writing to client, I explained that I like to work, eat, screw and sleep. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

I think people witness my thinking decide I am “complex”. If you knew me in person, you’d realize how simple I am…which is why people like me by the way.

football-widow-bann_791177cI worked with a gal, recently. She wanted me to look at the compatibility between her and her beau. The compatibility was quite good, but each individual chart was inordinately challenging.

I told her I’d seen relationships where one person was complicated, the other very simple. I used myself as an example – I’m simple.  So the person trying to get along with me, might have an easy time with a simple person…or they may be bored.

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 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 …

Aries – Launch that rocket, whether it’s a new love or business the time is right
Taurus- Don’t take rejection personally; there’s more to the story- just be patient
Gemini-Flipping back and forth will only wear you out and that what the opposition wants-decide now
Cancer- You have the right to say no to anyone or anything at anytime- no guilt!
Leo- It’s all about you; enjoy the spotlight but let your friends shine on beside you
Virgo- Unsettling feelings in your gut are there for a reason; let this mess go no further
Libra- Draw some boundaries now with pushy friends and neighbors to save your sanity
Scorpio- Your spark comes back and its’ time to tackle your goals one by one
Sagittarius- Not everyone enjoys a crowd; a quiet dinner will go much better
Capricorn-Interfering in others’ lives

Randall Ashbourne, an associate of Astrological Investing, posts a weekly market report on his web site, theidiotandthemoon.com  The following is this weekend’s Eye of RA report: Week beginning July 28,  2014 

Several major stock indices in North America and Asia hit new highs last week.

But it wasn’t universal, especially in Europe, and there is a danger that the grand daddy of stock indices, the Dow Jones Industrials, began a significant, intermediate downtrend from its all-time closing high on July 16, right on the July 14-16 major Bradley turn date I discussed in the July 7 edition.

It is possible the Pollyanna index, the SP500, peaked on Thursday with the Sun’s conjunction to Jupiter in the early degrees of Leo.

There could be an attempt at new highs on Monday when Venus opposes Pluto. Monday will be one of two …

We have been staying for a few days on Holy Island (also called Lindesfarne) off the northeast coast of England just south of the Scottish border. It is a lovely little island with ruins of a priory established by St. Cuthbert as far back as the 600s and a castle perched on a rock outcrop from the 1500s. In between them is a charming little village of small cottages where we’ve been lucky enough to spend four quiet days.

Yesterday morning I was preparing to make breakfast and sit down to write, when the power went out on the entire island ruining my plans. At first the word was that they expected electricity to return by 10 am.

Fortunately, we decided to drive off the island to find a place for breakfast. The island is reached by a causeway that …

ElsaElsa » Fatal Flaw

July 25th, 2014 @ 4:39 pm by ElsaElsa

Fatal Flaw ObserverThis came up in the workshop, on the private board. I brought it up.

  • Do you have what could be considered, a fatal flaw? Something that comes up, reliably, insuring that you fail to get what you want (or think you want)?
  • Do you spot these in others?
  • Last, do you feel a person can address their “fatal flaw”.

Here are my answers:

Mars (action, initiative, male energy) heads into Scorpio tonight at 10:24 PM EDT. It’s about time, right? We’ve all had enough of Mars in Libra. So, welcome Mars in Scorpio. Actions will be focused, raw, instinctive, compulsive. It’s time to … Continue reading →
