Many of you have asked questions in regard to being born with Retrograde planets in one’s natal chart and what it means.

The first thing that I would like to tell you is that when it comes to my approach to Astrology, this isn’t a negative or debilitating situation.

Mind you, this is ONE Astrologers opinion. So, I’m in no way implying that my word is the end all to be all about this subject. Astrology thrives on a variety of viewpoints and I don’t claim to have the “right” one. There’s a lot of information being circulated which suggests that Retrograde planets in the birth chart (as well as retrogrades in general) are certain to be inhibiting and I just don’t think that’s the case.

I think it’s only appropriate that I offer an alternative view to what …

For many of us, our personal life will be intricately tied to work life. If we’re working an 8 hour job, 5 days a week (or more), we’re definitely spending more time at work than we are at home.

When we’re considering Astrological measurements, we’re doing more than labeling a job/career AREA, we’re also taking into consideration how a person needs to behave/conduct themselves at work, how they need to express themselves on the job, as well as what types of vocations are most likely to accept and utilize these behaviors.

So… it’s a combination of what that person can bring to the Vocation, and what that Vocation can do for them in terms of emotional fulfillment.

Keys to look at: Sun/Moon blend, Aspects to The Moon, House position of the Moon, The MC sign + Ruler, as well …

July 22nd, 2016 @ 10:18 am by ElsaElsa

ace of spadesRecently, I watched someone do something wrong. 80% of people would immediately know the thing is wrong. The other 20% might think nothing is wrong or whatever. Let’s forget about them. I am talking about something clearly wrong to the majority of people. Something like beating up an old person and stealing their five dollars when you have no need for money. Most people agree, that’s a wrong thing to do.(…)

Samantha KamEarly Friday, the Moon moves into Pisces then the Sun hits Leo. The Sun is at home in the sign it rules and the Moon is lovely and sensitive in mutable water. By datetime, the Moon moves into orb of conjunction with Neptune for added nebulous shimmer. (…)

” A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault.” – John Henry Newman

Just as sure as the sun rises, it also sets.

Leo season is officially over, and the warmth and radiation of the limelight has now given way to Virgo’s claim. We’re now in the season of the harvest.

Like the energy which surrounds the Virgin, this time is ripe with certainty, but minimal fanfare. Virgo presents an offering of humility in order to balance the ego, which is ever present in the previous sign, Leo. On a collective level, the process of order and refinement of the personality is necessary.

The Symbolism

Let’s deal with first things first.

We must address the notion that the Virgin, which symbolizes Virgo, is some holy-rolling, chaste

virgo Vintage cigarette cardHi, Elsa

My health started spiraling down around thanksgiving 2015 to the point of coming within weeks of death my T cells where almost non-existent; I did not know. The first week of January I was diagnosed with HIV AIDS and was brought back from the point. Within a week of being discharged from pneumonia I landed back with meningitis. After all those treatments I had all kinds of ailments even warts on my neck and face. I healed and 6 months later as I write this question I’m back in a hospital bed with what ended up being a parasite after spinal taps and MRIs the doctors were thinking it was a lymphoma: cancer!

saturn girlHi, Elsa.

I’m 40. I have studied some astrology and understand that with so many planets in air signs, I’m not one to settle down quickly. However, I have Saturn in 7th and Capricorn ascendant…..will I ever get married already?

Saturn in 7th Pisces

Hi, Saturn. I would not bet on you getting married. I don’t mean that in a negative way. It’s just like you said.  Being light and flighty comes easily.  If you want to marry, you’re going to have to take a different path. The path will not be easy.(…)

sun-moon-e1418948682290Tuesday morning the Capricorn Moon pushes off a trine to Jupiter on its run-up to the full moon opposition with the Sun in the afternoon. That’s a great mood-push to overcome inertia and get going. Everything is a bit heavy with the Moon in Saturn ruled Capricorn, so a little lift goes a long way. Take it where you can get it!(…)
