Galactic Center Thoughts part XXIV (and also “The Gates of the Avatar”)

This past week I have been researching some more into the Galactic Center, and more specifically the Grand Cross that is formed between the Galactic Center, the Super Galactic Center, the Galactic Anti-Center, and whatever the fuck opposes the Super Galactic Center (I don’t know what this is yet, but I know there is SOMETHING there). Since a Grand Cross is a series of squares connecting different things in the chart, it got me thinking about square aspects in general. Now, obviously, with the Grand Cross aspect pattern in a chart (any kind of Grand Cross, GC related or not), actually balancing the oppositions is key. However, when looking at square aspects in general I have always felt that the midpoint between the square aspects can be used as a way to funnel the tension of the square aspect (thus becoming a place to release the tension).

So, back to the GC and the “Galactic Grand Cross” (that’s what I’m calling it for now, lol) – I decided to do the midpoints between each of the different squares in the Galactic Grand Cross. When you do this, you get:
**Midpoint between the GC and the SGC = 15-degrees Scorpio
**Midpoint between the SGC and the GaC = 15-degrees Leo
**Midpoint between the GaC and whatever opposes the SGC = 15 -degrees Taurus
**Midpoint between the GC and whatever opposes the SGC = 15-degrees Aquarius
***The above COULD vary slightly depending on the degrees of the GC/GaC/SGC/whatever opposes the SGC when you were born/for the chart that you’re looking at. The calculations above were taken from the current placements of the Galactic Grand Cross.

These all happen to be at 15-degrees of the fixed signs (and if you read stuff about 15-degrees of the fixed signs, usually some less than stellar things are said). I’ve never been so negative and fatalistic about degrees in a natal chart (I’m not fatalistic when reading a natal chart, period – all that fatalistic shit can suck a dick), so I’ve always kind of blown this line of thinking off (the line of thinking that 15-degrees of a fixed sign ALWAYS means something bad). There IS another line of thinking about these particular degrees that I do think is very interesting, especially in the context of the GC, and that’s the idea of 15-degrees of the fixed signs being “Avatar Points” or “Gates of the Avatars.” This isn’t a “new” concept to me, but it IS a new concept to me in terms of thinking of Avatar Points in relation to the GC. There are also some different names this concept might have if you look it up for yourself.

First though – A few definitions:

Avatar“a manifestation of a deity or released soul in bodily form on earth; an incarnate divine teacher.”
(There are other ones, but this one popped up first and I like it lol)
Another good (and more ancient) definition is “a release of energy.”

Avatar Gates – essentially these are thought to be at 15-degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius), and they are important since they are the midpoints between the solstice and equinox points in the natal chart (another tie to midpoints!). These parts of the chart, 15-degrees of the fixed signs, are thought to be a place that allows energy to release from The Source and to come through the native (and if there happens to be a planet at 15-degrees of the fixed signs as a vehicle for this “Source energy” to come through, this is made all the stronger).
**Typically, the Winter and Summer Solstice’s are thought of as being at 0-degrees Capricorn and 0-degrees Cancer, with the Spring and Autumn equinoxes being at 0-degrees Aries and 0-degrees Libra. However, with the GC currently at 27-degrees Sagittarius, the GaC at 27-degrees Gemini, the SGC at 2-degrees Libra, and whatever opposes the Super GC @ 2-degrees Aries, these are ALL very close to those solstice and equinox points in the chart (or the 0-degrees Aries Points/0-degrees of the cardinal signs).
**I also want to make mention quickly that the Avatar Gates are a thing even if one doesn’t have any conjunctions to the GC, to the SGC, to the GaC, or a conjunction to whatever opposes the SGC. For the context of THIS post, I’m looking at them solely from the lens of the Galactic Grand Cross.

The theory of the Avatar Gates in the context of the GC stands out to me because I already do feel like the GC is some kind of lifeline or tie to other dimensions or other places (among a lot of other shit). Having the midpoints of the Galactic Grand Cross touching these Avatar Gates makes me think that these particular points in the chart *could* be a way that The Source energy from the GC comes through the person and down to Earth (not so much dealing with the translation OF this energy – that does seem much more trines to the GC related). It also seems like any tension that might exist between the different square aspects of the Galactic Grand Cross could be eased via these Avatar Gates. It does seem like people that have a planet conjunct the GC (or even conjunct the GaC, SGC, or even conjunct whatever is opposite the SGC), and ALSO have some planet conjunct 15-degrees of one (or multiple) of the fixed signs, might be able to understand source energy that comes from the GC even more clearly (since there is an actual entry point for such energy in the first place – an entry point that isn’t solely twisting, changing, and transforming the energy of the GC…since this is what the GC does to anything that touches it). It seems like any planet that happens to be conjunct one of the Avatar Gates in the chart of someone with Galactic Grand Cross conjunctions might make the planet (or planets) conjunct the Avatar Gate(s) even more important. UNDERSTANDING this planet (or these planets) feels like it would be really important so the person could use the planetary energy to their benefit.
**When looking at conjunctions to the Avatar Gates, I would look at planets from 13 through 17 degrees of the fixed signs. Obviously though, the closer to 15 degrees that you can get, the better vehicle that planet probably will be to serve this “gate” purpose.

Let’s talk about the gates for just a second. There are archetypes for each of the gates (which do go along with the signs that they happen to reside):
**15- degrees Taurus – Taurus Gate or Bulls Gate
**15-degrees Leo – Leo Gate or Lion’s Gate
**15-degrees Scorpio – Scorpio Gate or Eagles Gate (personally I prefer “Phoenix Gate” here, but to each their own)
**15-degrees Aquarius – Aquarius Gate or Angels Gate (personally, I like to think of this as the “Gate of the Enlightened Human,” but to each their own).

The Bulls Gate deals with individual self-worth and value, and the power that can be found through security and stability in these notions. The Lions Gate deals with creativity and boldness, and the power that can be found through expressing such. Both of these gates are more subjective in nature (and more focused on the individual). The Phoenix Gate/Eagle Gate deals with deep ties to another person (or other people), and the power of the influence this could have. The Gate of the Enlightened Human/Angel Gate deals with ties to the collective in more universal and humanistic ways, and the power that can be found through this influence.

When I think about these gates in correlation with the Galactic Grand Cross, specifically the GC since that’s what a bulk of my research has been focused on, I automatically think of the “Wheel of Fortune” tarot card.

The Wheel of Fortune Tarot Card for those that aren’t familiar

Not only does this card have the Bull, the Lion, the Eagle/Phoenix, and the Angel/Enlightened Human ON the fucking card, the Wheel of Fortune ALSO has a correlation with Sagittarius energy. THIS really stands out to me since Sagittarius is where the GC actually falls. There is also the “knowledge” aspect on this card per the symbol of books being read, and the fucking snake (which I take to be like the snake in the Garden of Eden who got Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge). Sagittarius is a very knowledge focused sign, and the GC feels like it can be a place of divine downloads/divine knowledge coming through. Not only those things, but notice the Egyptian/Sphinx looking thing sitting at the top of the Rota Fortunae (and the ancient Egyptians….they knew a fucking thing or two – they seemed to have divine or “Source” knowledge in spades). Anubis also is featured on the card, and this Egyptian deity dealt with ushering souls into the afterlife and regeneration. BOTH of these notions feel very GC-esque as well. The GC doesn’t deal with death and regeneration in the way that Scorpio does, but anything that does happen to touch the GC (or actually fall into the GC) WILL BE CHANGED. At the same time, though, there are stars that are formed IN the GC (which means that while things may be changed, they don’t necessarily die – they are “reborn” or have the capacity to be reborn).
**There is also some Christian imagery/correlations on the card that I want to point out. What I’m correlating with the Avatar Gates on the Wheel of Fortune card (The Bull, The Lion, The Eagle/Phoenix, and The Enlightened Human/Angel) actually have ties to the Four Evangelists, or Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Luke is represented by the Bull, Mark is represented by the Lion, John is represented by the Eagle, and Matthew is represented by the Angel. Their gospels don’t go in the same order as the signs of the zodiac – the line up actually starts with Matthew, then Mark, then Luke, then John, but regardless I do find this very interesting. Even more interesting are the words T-A-R-O spelled out on the card (or R-O-T-A or T-O-R-A depending on where you start), along with the Hebrew letters for “YHWH” (which is the Hebrew word for God). My mind is making some connections with things from this point of view, but I’m not ready to touch any of that….even with a 10 foot pole.
***There is another card in tarot which also has all 4 symbols on it, and that is The World.

Basically, ALL of this makes me think that these Avatar Gates are important regardless, but for people who have Galactic Grand Cross conjunctions…. if they also happen to have a planet (or planets) conjunct these Avatar Gates (or an Avatar Gate), there is a bunch of knowledge and power that can enter the person in, perhaps, more stable or concrete ways than this knowledge is given/downloaded to the person via the GC (I could, maybe, even say that divine energy can flow through more easily as well – though that might be a reach as of now and this theory being in the earlier stages). I bring up the stable thing because there is a fixed/concrete quality to the fixed signs (just due to the nature of them being “fixed” signs). Like the GC (and even the Wheel of Fortune tarot card), though, I feel like the power that this planet/these planets pack can go in either an easy or challenging way for the person (or maybe even a little bit of both). With great power comes great responsibility kind of thing. Let’s play around with this just for shits and giggles:
-Let’s say someone had their Mars conjunct the GC, with their Sun at 16-degrees Aquarius (conjunct the Angel’s/Enlightened Human’s Gate). Their drive, independence, and aggression (among other Mars notions) are going to be changed, warped, charged, and transformed per the Mars conjunct the GC’s influence. The kind of downloads the person might get could have to do with their impulses and instinct (when to act, when not to act, etc.). The GC can be a confusing place, though, so the person may not always know exactly WHAT to do with their Mars or the downloads that it receives (how confusing Mars actually would end up being would depend a lot on everything else going on in this hypothetical chart). With this person’s Sun conjunct the Angel’s gate, it seems like divine Source energy might come to them/enter them through their sense of self so that they can use this in humanistic and collective kinds of ways (and by utilizing this within their sense of self, it might actually help to make their drive, and other Mars notions, more clear to them…along with any downloads they get with Mars conjunct the GC). This would obviously be tailored to whatever house the 16-Aquarius Sun falls in this hypothetical chart (along with the house that the GC falls).
**Since this theory is still a work in progress, it does seem like the actual square aspect between the GC and whatever opposes the SGC would come into play – though I’m still not sure exactly WHAT opposes the SGC, lol. Even so, the Sun in the hypothetical case above could serve as an outlet for the stress between the two points, meaning the way that person decided to utilize their Sun would be very important. Do they use this for the “good” or for the “bad”? That sounds dramatic, but because of the amount of power at this midpoint, it seems like the choice really is up to the person….how they use The Source energy that can flow through this midpoint.

Galactic Center Thoughts part XXIII or The Starseed Thing

Here is a video I did about this same thing if you’re more of a watcher than a reader 🙂

I have been hesitant to approach this topic…..the topic of Starseeds and how this notion might tie in with the Galactic Center. Why have I been hesitant to “go there”? I think it’s for a couple of different reasons. Some of it might have to do with the fact that there really isn’t a whole lot that is “tangible” about the notion of “starseeds” or about BEING a starseed (it’s COMPLETELY based off of a feeling of knowing – nothing that can really be proven or disproven as of now). The feeling of knowing is important though (I’m not brushing this off). I mean, I’m someone who DOES deal in and do past life work for clients and there is no way to prove a past life exists or not, either (this also deals heavily on the feeling of knowing, too). The difference, I think, between what I do for clients in terms of past life work and the notion of being a starseed in my mind (and how one feels more tangible than the other, to me anyway) has to do with the fact that I’m looking at a natal chart and coming up with your past life story based on things IN your natal chart (and not just pulling ideas out of my ass). I try to make these notions tangible to the client, as well, by explaining my process and why I come to the conclusions that I come to.  Another reason I think I haven’t wanted to dive down the starseed rabbit hole has to do with the way that starseed material is presented to the general public BY the general public. It’s all so fluffy…there isn’t usually a whole bunch that you can really sink your teeth into (it also feels incredibly disconnected from reality a lot of the time). I can definitely deal with things that are disconnected from reality (I find stuff like this fascinating to think about, and I wouldn’t always claim to be personally connected to Earth all of the time, lol), but I do like to try to bring theories down to Earth or make them tangible in some way.

With all that said though, I do think starseeds (or Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow Children) probably DO exist. I also think, with as weird of a fucking place as the Galactic Center is (and even the Super Galactic Center, Galactic Anti-Center, whatever opposes the Super Galactic Center, and the Great Attractor), I think it’s very possible you might find starseeds having conjunctions to any of these things in the natal chart. This wouldn’t be the only thing to look for, though (I don’t mean that ONLY people who have GC, SGC, whatever opposes the SGC, GaC, and GA conjunct natal planets and points are starseeds) – it would have to be a bunch of different factors coming into play in the chart that would tip a chart weaver off to the idea that “okay, this client *might* be a starseed,” and then proceed from there. The Galactic Grand Cross and the Great Attractor stuff might catch my eye first for looking for this kind of thing, though.

Okay, so there are a bunch of different starseeds that one could be so I won’t go into all of them in this blog post (or their respective descriptions – you can find a plethora of information on this online already lol), but I will touch on some of the groups. The purpose of all of this is to try and make the starseed thing more tangible via the natal chart (an experiment if you will). Below you will see a list of some of the major starseed groups based off of where they originate, along with a list of things that you can pull in the natal chart under the “extended chart selection” on Astro.com. My advice? If there is a certain type of starseed that you think you might be, pull some of these fixed stars and asteroids in your own natal chart and see if you get any “hits” in your natal chart (such as conjunctions between a natal planet and something on this list within 1.5 degrees applying or separating).

Orion Starseeds
-fixed star Mintaka
-fixed star Rigel (or Rigel, beOri)
-fixed star Betelgeuse (or Betelgeuse, alOri)

This is a list in progress. If you have any other ideas of things that could be pulled, let me know. Asteroid’s DNA, Spirit, Alma, and a few others are on my radar for this purpose, I’m just not totally sure how I would fit them in the mix yet. There is also an asteroid that I remember seeing before that meant “starchild” or something like that, but I can’t remember the number. I will have to look into this more, too.

The United States Chiron Return

Here is a link to a video that I did about this same thing, for those of you that are more watchers than readers

Chiron’s Return happens about every 48-52 years – this means that if someone lives to see 50 or so years old, they will experience transit Chiron “coming home” to it’s exact position in their natal chart. Same thing is true of countries – if a country exists beyond 48 to 52 years, it, too, will see a Chiron Return.

Chiron Returns bring up Chiron’s core wounding in a chart – forcing one to acknowledge the pain and wounding that exists there. This is made easier if the person (or if the country) has already put in some work to help heal their Chiron wounding before the Return happens. Even if work has already been put in on attempting to heal Chiron during previous times in one’s life, the Return serves as a benchmark to see just what you’ve learned (and to respond accordingly). The United States has actually had 4 Chiron Return previously, so the one coming up in the 2020’s is not our first rodeo. However, this one IS a little different in that it coincides with the US’s Pluto Return (it comes in hot on the heels of the apex of the Pluto Return), while also being boxed in with the US’s Uranian Return/Uranus entering Gemini. THESE factors do make this Chiron Return a little more unique (just by virtue of being sandwiched by two other massive transit events).

For a timeline, Chiron’s Return will be going on from:
-May 23, 2022 through September 15, 2022
-March 23, 2023 through May 20, 2025
-October 12, 2025 through March 22, 2026

The reason for the time being broken up is because I use an orb of 5-degrees applying and separating between transit and natal Chiron, and during those breaks in time transit Chiron will be out of that 5-degree applying or separating orb with the US’s natal Chiron.

Chiron’s Return’s in the US (the first pass) during the height of Pluto’s Return on July 12, 2022

Just for reference, Pluto’s Return is already going on from present through December 27, 2025 (this technically started in early 2020). Transit Pluto will be conjunct the US’s natal Pluto on February 20, 2022, July 12, 2022, and on December 27, 2022. Uranus will enter Gemini “for good” (not retrograding back into Taurus) on April 26, 2026. This puts Chiron’s Return right in the middle of all of this.

The US has it’s natal Chiron at 20 Aries 08 in the 4th House. Since the US is dealing with a 4th House Chiron, it does feel to me that the wounding is very personal TO the US, specifically involving the homeland and/or the people. In Aries, this is going to deal with notions of independence, aggression, self-assurance (or even self-doubt), drive, and other Arian traits. Really, the 4th House can be rather “defensive” and Aries energy can be “offensive” – so this feels something like “the best defense is a good offense.” The US is very consumed with protecting the homeland, so this does seem like it fits. The US ALSO has it’s natal Saturn in Libra in the 10th House loosely opposite natal Chiron, which does make me think we are probably too busy playing world “peacemaker” or “negotiator” to be defensive about our own people (and the care of the people in this country) …..which also seems very apt (or defensive of our people in the “right” ways). The US is also very focused on notions of personal independence, Now, this isn’t a bad thing – there is nothing wrong with personal independence and there is nothing wrong with a country cherishing such a belief. It CAN be a problem, or wounding, for a country when personal independence is put before the welfare of ALL the people who are citizens of the country. This is something I don’t think we’ve ever fully been able to figure out – how to still value personal independence strongly while still being caring and compassionate towards those who, perhaps, personal independence isn’t as easily obtained for a whole myriad of reasons (either in the short or long term). THIS feels like it probably plays into the US’s wounding, this idea that “I have mine so FUCK EVERYONE ELSE” that seems to be very prevalent in American society. Aries energy *can* be selfish, and I do think THIS is wounding to us as a country.
***The US also has natal Chiron loosely square the Sun in the 7th in Cancer (with Leo being on the cusp of the 9th House). This makes me think that this country’s ego is more focused on the concept of the “other” (and in this case, it does feel more “other country” focused). THIS pulls at Chiron – like the more involvement we have with other countries, the less that we are able to heal Chiron’s wounding here at home (or something along those lines). I could probably go more depth, but I’ll stop there for now. We need to knock this shit off, though.

As I mentioned before, the US has seen 4 Chiron Returns in the country’s history, and these happened from 1972 – 1976, 1922-1926, and again in the 1870’s and 1820’s (I haven’t looked at the exact dates or the historical context for the ones that occurred in the 1800’s). There are definitely some historical things that occurred during the last two Chiron Returns that stand out to me (and I like to look at the history here since similar themes can come back around – time is cyclical).

During the time of the last Chiron Return in the 1970s, Watergate was going on which ended with Nixon resigning as president in 1974 (Gerald Ford became president after Nixon resigned). The US pulled out of Vietnam in 1973 with the Vietnam War coming to an end in 1975. BOTH of these things were embarrassments to the United States. I mean, lol, the Nixon thing probably should be embarrassing on it’s own (because, hahahaha, it is). It’s the Vietnam thing that gets me the most. The US didn’t appear to be embarrassed about fighting in a fucking proxy war that we didn’t need to fight in the first place or drafting people to go to war (and having to implement the draft because so many men didn’t want to fight that fucking war – that should say something right there). The US also didn’t seem to be embarrassed about the treatment of the men that fought in that war after they came home (by and large they were not treated well – THAT should be and should’ve been fucking embarrassing). But no….at the time it seems that it was most embarrassing that we were on the “losing side.” There was also a recession from 1973 – 1975 which included BOTH high unemployment and high inflation. Health insurance shit also came into play as well. Before Nixon resigned (and while he was running for re-election in 1972), he campaigned on some different ideas dealing with health care (such as having employers obligated to offer insurance to full time employees, and things of that nature). Some of what he proposed is in place today (though it didn’t happen until after he was out of office – Watergate kind of derailed his plans this way).

During the time of Chiron’s Return in the 1920’s, there was a recession that took place from May 1923 through July 1924, though this one appears to have dealt more with inflation than unemployment. Health and medical stuff came up around this time as well. Hospital and medical expense policies were introduced, and individual hospitals started offering services to individuals on a prepaid basis (I can’t actually nail down an exact date for this). President Harding died in in 1923 of a heart attack and his Vice, President Coolidge, took office). Prohibition was also going on at this time – this was started in 1919 with the Volstead Act and added as the Eighteenth Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920 (later it was repealed with the Twenty-First Amendment). Interestingly enough, Nixon enacted the “War on Drugs” a year or two before 1972 and when our most recent Chiron return started (substances were obviously illegal before this with the passing of the Harrison Act in 1914, but the War on Drugs kind of upped the game). When are we going to learn that prohibiting stuff causes more fucking problems than it solves? We can make shit illegal all day long, but where there is a will there is a way – if someone wants to get a hold of something (and we could be talking about anything here), they will find a way to get a hold of it. In this day and age, we could be talking about anything from firearms to abortion….to fucking anything. If firearms become illegal, the black market will skyrocket for them (people in this country like their guns). If abortion is made illegal, the demand won’t go away – a black market will open up for them, too. It does make me wonder if might see something else get prohibited, and this could be something completely new or something that has already been threatened with prohibition in the past.
**Both Prohibition and the War on Drugs should be fucking embarrassing for Americans because neither really tackled any of the root issues that stem from alcohol or other substances.

To sum that up, lol, there do appear to be some common themes:
-Recessions and money shit
-Health and medical shit
-Change in political leadership
-“Embarrassing” shit happening

Maybe we will take the opportunity with this Chiron Return to learn something about really defending the American people in a more compassionate and caring way? Not in the military industrial complex way (not that kind of defense if we can help ourselves – we already know about that), but perhaps, putting the American people and our interests first. I definitely think values will come into play (and perhaps even money and other resources) with Pluto’s Return happening along side all of this Chiron stuff (and Pluto’s return happening in the natal 2nd House, and natal Chiron and natal Pluto loosely squaring one another). Interesting times….lol, just interesting fucking times.

The Great Attractor

Norma & The Great Attractor are pictured at the bottom right

**Here is a video that I did about this same thing, if you’re more of a watcher than a reader**

Lately I’ve been getting some messages on reddit (and even emails from previous clients) asking me about the Great Attractor – wanting to know if I will ever be discussing/diving into this, or if I was even aware of this anomaly in space in the first place. Since it has come up enough, I figured I would do a post about this since I am aware of this and it IS on my radar (I have just been too preoccupied with clients and the GC to really dive in). I am absolutely delighted that so many of you all are aware of the Great Attractor, too ^_^

So…..what is the Great Attractor? It is supposedly the gravitational pull point in the Laniakea Supercluster (a “meta-galaxy”/collection of superclusters of galaxies in which our own galaxy is a part of). It is considered an anomaly because the Great Attractor functions like a black hole (it warps time, space, and light), but unlike a black hole it has no event horizon (so it doesn’t fit the standard definition OF a black hole). The Great Attractor appears to be pulling different super clusters of galaxies towards it, and scientists believe that our own galaxy supercluster is also being pulled towards it. The GA is also thought to be made up of “dark energy.” The definition of dark energy is “anything that is, in effect, an intrinsic property of space. That has a constant energy density regardless of the dimensions of the volume under consideration. Thus, unlike ordinary matter it is not diluted by the expansion of space.” Dark energy is thought to be the reason that the universe is accelerating in its rate of expansion (though no one seems like they are 100% sure about this). Dark doesn’t mean literally dark (or bad/negative), but “mysterious” and “unknown,” and unknown it is – while it is thought to make up a whole bunch of space, scientists still aren’t real sure what the fuck dark energy is.

Same thing could be said about the GA – scientists KNOW there is something there pulling these different superclusters towards it, but they aren’t real sure how to classify the GA. To make it even more difficult to understand, the GA happens to fall in the zone of avoidance (which means it isn’t easy to see it with visible light wavelengths due to being blocked by the Milky Way’s galactic plane). The only way that it has been observed is with X-rays (though the area of space where they think the GA is located happens to be in an area where the Norma Cluster of galaxies is located). So, lol, that’s fucking weird. If this is actually like a black hole, shouldn’t it be “sucking” up the Norma Cluster?

Why does any of this matter, lol? I like to look at the science behind this deep space shit to try to apply it to a natal chart (and to see how it might function in a natal chart). Here are some thoughts that I have about the GA and how it might function in a natal chart. While the GA can be pulled in anyone’s chart, I do think it probably has the most impact in the lives of people who have conjunctions to the GA (planets, Chiron, the Nodes, cardinal points, etc.).
-Even if scientists aren’t sure WHAT the GA is or HOW the GA functions, it does seem to be some kind of force that pulls things to it. This makes me think that the GA in a natal chart functions in a similar way – acting as an attracting force. Is this for the good of the person, or to the person’s detriment? I’m a little on the fence about this particular notion. I feel like this could really go either way.
-Since the GA happens to be in the Zone of Avoidance in the sky, I feel like this can probably be translated down to the natal chart, too. The person may not be as clear about what the GA attracts into their life (or even what they can consciously attract when they are able to SEE/FEEL the GA in their own charts and how it functions).
-A planet conjunct the GA (or cardinal point, Chiron, etc.) may attract things into the native’s life dealing with whatever planet (et.al) is involved in the conjunction. This person may not have as much conscious control of what they attract in this regard. However, I have this idea that when the person is consciously aware of what they attract, they are probably able to attract exactly what they want to them (this probably takes a lot of self-control and self-awareness).
-I have mentioned before that the Galactic Center might function like an antenna, picking up shit from the GC and even shooting stuff back out from the antenna. I think the GA might function in a similar way (but it DOES feel different than the GC, even if they both have the feeling of having this antenna). I’ll have to sit with this part a little longer to figure out exactly HOW to articulate the difference, lol.

How can you pull the Great Attractor in your own chart? Go to astro.com and go to the “extended chart selection” after creating an account. Go down to where it says “additional objects” towards the bottom, and click on the list of “fixed stars.” Go down the list, and once you get to the G’s, look for something labeled “Great Attractor, GA.” Click on that option and then pull your chart.

There is something else here to mention….something that kind of “ups the ante” of the GA, and this something called the Shapley Attractor. Scientists have proposed that the Shapley Attractor might be stronger than the Great Attractor, and that the Shapley Attractor MIGHT be the “collaboration” between the Shapley Supercluster and the Great Attractor coming together to create a whole new attractor. I have NO idea how to pull this in the chart (but I’m looking into it, lol).

Galactic Center Thoughts part XXII

**Here is a video that I made about the same thing, for all of you that would rather watch than read**

I haven’t done any percentages lately about different things I’ve been looking at in regards to the Galactic Center (things that feel like they tie in with the GC but seem to function as a “amplifier” to the GC for people who are already inclined to the way that the GC functions). So, lol, I figured I would do a post about THIS very thing and show what I’ve come up with THUS far.

I have talked about Jupiter Retrograde throughout this whole study and how I feel like it has a natural affinity with the way that the GC functions. Jupiter (retrograde or direct) has a tie with the GC energy since the GC falls in Sagittarius, but Jupiter Retrograde does feel like it has a special place here. I decided to take Mercury Rx out of this (in the original percentages I was lumping Jupiter Rx and Mercury Rx shit together which I shouldn’t have done). I haven’t fucked with Mercury Rx this go around (though I’m sure I will in future percentage calculations). Instead, this time around I was looking for the percentage of people who have Jupiter Rx (or were born during the shadow period) and/or Jupiter involved with the GC in some way (via conjunction, opposition, trine, or even the square….though I’m still not quite sure WHAT to do with the squares yet). The percentage that I came back for this was 63% – meaning 63% of people have Jupiter Rx (or born in the shadow period) and/or have Jupiter (direct or Rx) making one of the aspects mentioned before to the GC (and the planet conjunct the GC). I found that 37% of participants do not have Jupiter Rx (or born under the shadow period) and don’t have Jupiter making an aspect to the planet conjunct the GC or to the GC itself.
To break this down even further:
-69% of these people have Jupiter Rx (or were born during the shadow period)
-31% of these people have Jupiter (either direct or Rx) making an aspect to the GC and planet conjunct the GC.

To keep going with the Jupiter thing for a minute, I wanted to look and see how many people had aspects between Jupiter and Chiron, Jupiter and Saturn, and Jupiter and Uranus in their charts. The bounds for this part of the study are simple – it didn’t matter if Jupiter is direct or Rx, or if any of these objects mentioned make contacts with the GC. Since everyone in the study will have SOMETHING conjunct the GC (so far, anyway), I was just curious what the different contacts looked like between these planets (and asteroid) across the different charts. The aspects that I was taking into consideration here are the conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition, square, and quincunx.
**Jupiter/Chiron Aspects**
-66% of people in the study thus far have Jupiter making an aspect with Chiron
-34% of people in the study thus far did not have Jupiter making an aspect with Chiron
**Jupiter/Saturn Aspects**
-57% of people in the study thus far have Jupiter making an aspect with Saturn
-43% of people in the study thus far don’t have Jupiter making aspect with Saturn
**Jupiter/Uranus Aspects**
-61% of the people in the study thus far have Jupiter making an aspect with Uranus
-39% of the people in this study thus far don’t have Jupiter making an aspect with Uranus

Bringing up the topic of aspects for just a second, I think in the next go-around of percentages to see where things stand, I will be looking at some minor aspects (like the septile, noville, vigintile, etc.). Specifically, I think I will probably focus on the planet (or planets) conjunct the GC and if that planet also happens to make one of these more minor aspects with another planet in the chart.

I also took a look at Chiron – both to see how many people have Chiron direct and Chiron Rx and to see how many people have Chiron making an aspect to the GC (conjunction, trine, opposition, and square are what I was looking at here). This is what I came back with:
-50% of people have Chiron Rx SOMEWHERE in the natal chart (doesn’t have to be involved with the GC). The other 50% of people have Chiron direct.
-54% of people have Chiron (either direct or Rx) making one of the aspects mentioned above to the GC.
-46% of people have Chiron (either direct or Rx) NOT making one of the aspects mentioned above to the GC.
–Chiron here should be thought of an an amplifier for the GC energy. While it’s energy certainly ties in with the GC, I think in order for Chiron (direct or Rx) to amplify the GC, something needs to be conjunct or opposite the GC in the first place. I would think that Chiron Rx would serve as a greater amplifier in these cases, since Rx energy ALSO seems to have an affinity for the GC.

Retrograde planets were the next thing that I wanted to revisit. I looked at these from a couple of different angles, the first of which being the charts of people I would consider to be “retrograde heavy.” When I think of a retrograde heavy chart, I think of someone who has their chart ruler retrograde, or someone who has 3 or more planets retrograde in their chart (things like this make me think “ah, this person has a retrograde heavy chart”). Since everyone in the study thus far has a planet conjunct the GC, I was curious how many of these people would be considered Rx heavy. This is what I came up with:
-60% of people have retrograde heavy charts
-40% of people don’t have retrograde heavy charts (even if they have one or two planets retrograde somewhere)
–I was curious to see how many retrograde heavy people may have been drawn to take part in this research, lol, since there does seem to be an affinity between retrograde planets and the GC.
From here I wanted to look at the percentage of people who have a retrograde planet conjunct the GC. I have mentioned before some thoughts about this; while the GC seems to have an affinity for retrograde energy, I do wonder WHAT happens to planets conjunct the GC that are retrograde. Does this amplify the retrograde feeling of the planet, or does it do something along the lines of “turning” the planet direct? I could see either of these being a possibility. These are the numbers I came back for this:
-68% of people had only direct planets (or a direct planet) conjunct the GC
-32% of people had at least one retrograde planet conjunct the GC

I also wanted to look at planets Out of Bounds, and how many people have Out of Bounds planets in their natal charts (since I do think that OOB planets might amplify the energy of the GC IF there is already a planet conjunct the GC, or opposing the GC). These are the numbers that I came up with:
-28% of people have NO Out of Bounds planets in their chart
-72% of people have at least 1 planet OOB in their chart
–From the percentage of people that have at least one planet OOB, I broke this down further:
-48% of people have 1 planet OOB
-42% of people have 2 planets OOB
-10% of people have 3 planets OOB
-No participants had more than 3 planets OOB
From there I wanted to look and see how many people had their OOB planet (or planets) conjunct the GC. For this, all the planets that someone has OOB didn’t have to be conjunct the GC (I was just looking to see if at least one OOB planet was conjunct the GC for the cases of people having multiple OOB planets). Here are the numbers I found:
-79% of people that have OOB planets have at least one OOB planet conjunct the GC
-21% of people have OOB planets that make no conjunction to the GC
