An Astrological Civilization

Thanks to the current proliferation of blogs and vlogs that magnetize hundreds of thousands of dedicated followers, we are now witnessing astrology’s explosion into mainstream media and culture. As the appeal for traditional religious institutions diminishes, astrology and other spiritually oriented practices become both an alternative and a refuge.

2022 Astrological Overview – January to August

Jupiter/Neptune conjunction / Nodes in Scorpio-Taurus / Uranus North Node

Powerful alignments are ahead of us for the year 2022. This includes the 13-year Jupiter/Neptune cycle which, this time, resets in the sign of
Pisces—the sign ruled by both the planets. In the backdrop, the Nodal Axis (18 month-cycle in a sign) retrogrades from the Gemini/Sagittarius axis to the Taurus/Scorpio axis. Uranus and Mars join the North Node late July for an eventful alignment that promises breakthroughs.

The USA first PLUTO RETURN

…and the great Venus/Mars conjunction:

February – March 2022

The United States will experience its first PLUTO RETURN since its inception on February 20, 2022. This will be followed by two additional returns this year on July 11 and December 28, as Pluto proceeds with its retrograde and forward motion. While opinions differ on which of the returns is the most significant, this article is specifically about the first return. I see it as the most critical one, not only because it sets the tone for the whole process, but also because it coincides with a Venus/ Mars conjunction on the same degree.

The Spectacular Parallel Fate of

the Jupiter/Neptune 1958 Super Stars
PRINCE & MICHAEL JACKSON, MADONNA, & KATE BUSH

1958stars
Superstar and extraordinary talent musician Prince transitioned from this world on April 21, 2016, after collapsing in an elevator. Gone too soon, we would agree, for Prince was only 57.
Prince was born on June 7, 1958, on the early summer season that happened to see the birth of some of the most popular and recognizable pop icons of our time, among them Michael Jackson (Aug 29, 1958), Madonna (August 16, 1958), and across the ocean in Britain, Kate Bush (July 30, 1958).
It is truly astounding that this cluster of iconic famous pop music stars were born within a few weeks of each other. We look for the celestial configurations in the natal chart of these figures that could capture their iconic status, and notice they were all born with a Jupiter/Neptune conjunction on their North Node.

Winning with a 12th House

– Exploration of the prominence of 12th houses in public figures

In astrology, every moment matters. The cosmic clock ticking, as planets (and luminaries) pursue their motion and form celestial patterns, provides a flavor, a meaning, or a message for each passing minute or for a whole epoch. We ourselves are the embodiment of the moment of our birth; as such, each one of us represents a moment in time. In other words, each fraction of time has a purpose.

The Saturn – Pluto Conjunction

And the transits for the year 2020

(Expanded from the article originally published in the Dec 2015 edition of The Mountain Astrologer)

In astrology, every moment matters. The cosmic clock ticking, as planets (and luminaries) pursue their motion and form celestial patterns, provides a flavor, a meaning, or a message for each passing minute or for a whole epoch.

Neptune in Pisces (2011-2026):

Beyond Thought, Beyond Beliefs, Freedom from all Illusions

(Published in the Sept 2011 edition of The Mountain Astrologer)

Neptune in Pisces

In recent years, we have watched powerful new ingresses of slow moving planets as they entered new signs. Pluto first moved into Capricorn, and then Uranus and Jupiter moved hand in hand into Aries’ fire of creation simultaneously opposing Saturn as it emerged into Libra. In the backdrop of this unique Cardinal configuration, an equally dramatic development is set in motion when Neptune progresses into its own sign of Pisces for an extended period of approximately 14 years. With a world already shaken by natural events and socioeconomic unrest, our yearning to transcend illusive schemes and aim for a direct perception of the Truth becomes not merely a quest for spiritual seekers, but a survival imperative for all. With Neptune moving into Pisces, humanity is possibly confronted with one of its most serious existential crises ever; and with the stakes so high, along with a paralyzing sense of insecurity, this transit renders us humble and disarmed as we stand unsheltered from the facts of the Truth.
