Overriding My Desire To Complain

I was upset by a situation recently. I am in a position where I can righteously complain. By that I mean that I really was wronged. But further, I will be directly asked to make remarks about the scenario. Boy would I … Read More…

Exaltation, Detriment, Fall: The Sun

Exaltation, detriment, and fall are underutilized concepts in modern astrology, perhaps in part because even the ancients did not leave us a lot of clear explanation on the matter. Every planet has a sign (and degree) of exaltation, an opposite … Read More…

Cardinal signs do enjoy a challenge. And today the Capricorn Moon meets hers when she squares Jupiter in Libra before dawn, conjoins hardcore Pluto first thing in the morning and squares Uranus in Aries this evening. All of these aspects create energy via tension and can give us the boost we need to keep on going. While it may not be a great time to ask for a raise, it is a good day to tackle demanding projects that require tenacity to see through to completion. 🌠☾♑🌠

By the way, the Sun has almost completed its stay in fiery Aries (it moves into Taurus tomorrow). The excitement of starting something is strong in Aries but it takes good old fashioned fixed Taurus grit to slog through the boring parts. Interestingly, Mercury moves back into Aries on Thursday, so there will …

As mentioned in Monday’s post, I’d not looked at my own “profile” on this blog for years. In 2006, when I opened Learning Curve on the Ecliptic, I listed my interests as: “astrology, psychic phenomena, music, politics, art, writing”. This week, just for a change from random scribbling, I’m re-airing, at a rate of one topic per day, a past post – one that I feel remains relevant.

Today’s topic:…

Spending Your Entire Life, Stuck In A Rut

If there is anything that terrifies a Mutable or a Jupiter-type person like me, it’s the idea of getting stuck in rut. However, this is extremely common. On the surface, it seems that people with an emphasis on the Fixed signs would … Read More…

Here are the horoscopes for the ‘Flower’ Full Moon of May 10, 2017 @20Sco24 and New Moon of May 25, 2017 @4Gem46 set for Washington DC; if you wish, please enlarge for better reading of my scribbled study notes:

As you see, Venus rules both charts via Libra rising. At the May 10th Full Moon (lower left on the dual chart), Venus applies only once: an opposition to Jupiter Rx denoting a period of…

Ready or not, it’s back to work today and we’re blessed with a brisk, efficient Capricorn Moon to get the week off on the right foot. With no aspects to distract her until evening, the Capricorn Moon is a wonderful assistant. A relaxing sextile to Neptune in Pisces ends the day on a easy going note. This is about as good as Monday gets these days so make the most of it. 🌠☾♑🌠

We are also blessed today with a trine between the energetic Aries Sun and workhorse Saturn in Sagittarius. Together these two provide us with constructive inspiration, always useful for being productive. We may be able to finally see ways to start moving forward again. Don’t get in a big hurry though . . . we still have a retrograde Mercury even though Venus is now direct.

Three planets change sign this week, one in reverse and two moving forward. Mercury moves back into Aries from Taurus on Thursday, the Sun leaves Aries for Taurus on Wednesday, and Mars moves ahead into Gemini on Friday. Got that?! 🙂 It will take some adjusting to these differences but we’ll manage.

Initially the Sun shifting into Taurus brings a sense of relief after living with charged up Aries for the past month. This time the Sun immediately conjoins retrograde Mercury in Taurus, and this could focus our thoughts more strongly than usual in the here and now. This effect won’t last long because Mercury returns to Aries the following day and our inner chatter increases in volume.

Retrograde Mercury in Aries is far more impatient with the little things than retrograde Mercury in Taurus. Thankfully Mercury Rx in Aries will …

Weekly Forecast: April 17-21, 2017 – The Times They Are A-changin’

This week change is in the air as newly direct Venus perfects its square to retrograde Saturn, and the Sun, Mercury, and Mars change sign. That bothersome burden on desire culminates quickly as Venus and Saturn pass going separate directions. … Read More…

Lively trines from the Sagittarius Moon to Uranus and the Sun in Aries light up the morning, starting the day off on a happy note. However when the Moon runs into the Venus in Pisces-Saturn in Sagittarius square towards midday, some of the shine will begin to wear off. After the Moon squares Saturn in the early afternoon, she will be void-of-course until late afternoon/early evening when she enters reserved Capricorn. Once in Capricorn the Moon makes a pleasing trine to Mercury in Taurus which is wonderful for quiet conversations this evening. In other words we have a very exuberant Easter Sunday morning followed by a return to more sedate emotional levels for the rest of the day. 🌠☾♐🌠🌠☾♑🌠

Mars in Taurus is sextile Chiron and Venus in Pisces today, both pleasant aspects conducive to taking action to …
