Debbie Frank » Underground

October 24th, 2016 @ 4:37 am by Debbie Frank

Last week I was stranded on the Jubilee line as announcements proclaimed ‘this train is being held underground’. Such a fitting symbol for the Mars-Pluto conjunction going on. That sense of not being able to move, being under the control of the ‘powers that be’ whilst a suspect package was being examined at the other end of the line which was indeed found to be explosive. A time of reflection, an uncomfortable moment, it could have been worse…..…

stallion landscapeMonday morning we start out the week with Mercury at the last degree of Libra: weighing our options. The Leo Moon trines Uranus and the collective mood is open to all the possibilities the future has to offer. Take in that electricity and reflect it out into the world. Creativity is enlivened, so share that jump start!(…)

ddos-attackWe’re all aware of Friday’s DDOS attack. There’s a discussion here. This is a great example of Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

Pluto is concerned with the use of other people’s energy or resources.
Mars attacks and Capricorn rules business.
Businesses were attacked,  but it might also be someone’s business to attack.

Diane O on ElsaElsa » In Love With A Sagittarius Man

October 23rd, 2016 @ 10:39 am by Diane O

sagittarius man square posterI got a call today from a friend who is in love with a man who is a Sagittarius. I don’t blame her- the man is a go-getting God. He works for a nonprofit and tirelessly champions the downtrodden as a successful fundraising dervish. My friend is a Taurus. Did you hear the “clunk” after I said “Taurus”? Most of her questions center on asking me WHEN he is going to stop chasing waterfalls, and decide to pick her once and for all and settle down and start a “real” life. Her chart has very little fire and air; his has no water, but does have earth. You’d think this is a match made in heaven, right? Opposites attract, and all that?(…)

ElsaElsa » She Moved To A New Country – Landed Hard!

October 22nd, 2016 @ 10:52 am by ElsaElsa

PlaqueHi Elsa,

I have moved from my country for working reasons. I couldn’t find a job my country due to my age. I got a decent job pretty quickly here, but can not fit in – or better, I am not allowed to fit in, because I am an immigrant and people want to keep their distance.(…)

As we make the transition from Libra season into Scorpio, there’s a shift in dynamic which we feel unmistakably. The urge for the scales’ collaboration and refined social intercourse gives way to a more instinctual and raw gut-level reality which encapsulates survival. How well we adjust to this season depends on how willing we are to face the shadows. After all, we’re dealing with less light to operate with at this time of year. Not only physically, but also on a psychological level.

Astrologer Howard Sasportas once remarked that Astrological archetypes are like an elevator; we tend to live them out at varying levels throughout our lives. Some of us aspire to the top floor of a sign, while others may stay on the ground level. Out of all of the signs on the wheel of life, Scorpio …

Back in elementary school, I remember when we studied rocks and their various classifications. Some of them were used as components to build, i.e. for structural purposes, while others seemed to be a massive obstruction, and their weight actually helped to provide a blockade or control barrier for flooding.

When we look at Moon-Saturn contacts in Synastry, we could easily make a comparison to these basic lessons. When two individuals share these aspects in relationship Astrology, the structures and containment of the emotional life is a highlighted theme.

This dynamic can operate where both partners share a safe place to express their feelings without reservations because they’ve done the work to build a mature foundation of mutual dignity and respect. There’s a certain consistency of words and actions aligning via an external demonstration of commitment and endurance despite the hardships …

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 …

Keywords used in interpretation of zodiac signs and astrological houses are a handy tool, especially helpful to beginners who wish to learn more about the ancient art. There are several websites online offering lists of keywords – for example HERE, under “Introduction to Astrology.”
Among astrology-related books lining my shelves is “Astrological Keywords” by Manly P. Hall. The author is…
