Introduction To Pallas Athena In The Natal Chart

Pallas Athena glyph“Is the system going to flatten you out and deny you your humanity, or are you going to be able to make use of the system to the attainment of human purposes?”
–Joseph Campbell

Pallas Athena, the mythological goddess, originated from the head of Zeus (Jupiter) a fully formed, female warrior. She is associated with creative intelligence, particularly as it relates to war, healing and arts and crafts. The energy this asteroid expresses resonates with a blending of Aquarius, Leo and Libra. As simply as possible she represents the creative intelligence, perception of wholly realized concepts and balance.

Weekend Love Forecast – Pisces Full Moon Eclipse

sun-moon-e1418948682290After the midday eclipse opposition, the full Moon in Pisces makes no new aspects through the rest of the sign. The feels have launched and drift unimpeded. This gives many a chance to let it all soak in. Things don’t always turn on a dime in Pisces, or it may not be readily apparent if they have. Flow with the mood and see where it takes you personally. It’s very personal, even where it seems impersonal. In Pisces it’s everything, everything connects. (…)

firepitThe big, Friday-through-the-weekend news is the movement of Jupiter from Virgo to Libra. YES! Why so much yes? Oh I don’t know, how about a big philosophical shift into pleasantry and balance – after its inflation of the unending trash fire of multiple, mutable t-squares? I’ll take it. (…)

Weekend Love Forecast – Libra Moon And Venus Fuel Mars Fire

firepitAll weekend long, the Virgo Sun holds a t-square with the Saturn-Neptune square and a square with Mars. It’s separating from the first while closing in on the latter. The strong eclipse energy continues to reverberate. As such, the perspective on reality continues to shift, and just what are we going to do about it?

The Composite Ascendant

George and Gracie Burns“Those two are a fastidious couple. She’s fast and he’s hideous.”
–Henny Youngman

The most evident effect of the composite chart is the ascendant. If you want to know how you appear as a couple look to the rising sign. This is the placement that represents how you look when you are together. Leo rising couples are radiant and regal, dramatic. They look like fun. With a Scorpio ascendant you’ll have a subtle and compelling power about you. Perhaps you look a bit dangerous. My man and I have Libra on the ascendant and have been told we’re an attractive and pleasant couple. Because of this I try to keep him near me at all times.

Astrology And Pokemon Go

The real life element is highly engaging, but it’s the blend of fantasy and reality that holds the interest. Remind you of any astrological trends in the collective?(…)

Introduction To Ceres In The Natal Chart

ceres“It is difficult for some people to accept that love is a choice. This seems to run counter to the generally accepted theory of romantic love which expounds that love is inborn and as such requires no more than to accept it.”
–Leo Buscaglia, Pisces Ceres conjunct the nadir sextile Taurus Venus in the 6th house

The Ceres of mythology is the the archetype of the earth mother. The asteroid Ceres represents both our nurturing needs and how we nurture others. It is how we were nurtured as children and how we nurture our own children, as well as all the others we choose to interact with. The expression of Ceres energies ranges from controlling to permissive, cold to overbearing, just as human caregivers do. Just because it’s mama energy does not necessarily mean “warm and fuzzy.”
