Astrological Ramblings

Pluto conjunct the Natal Ascendant via Transit and Solar Arc (or: A Fucked Up Journey) **Trigger Warning – different kinds of abuse are mentioned in this article**Here is a youtube video that I did about the same kind of thing When I see this old picture of myself from a middle school yearbook, I think to myself “have you seen this girl?” I haven’t seen her in fucking years. I think some of her is getting flipped back “on” now, though (just through the lens of a 34 year old rather than a 13 year old). I have wanted to do a blog post about this for a while, and each time I start it, I stop myself. Do I really want to expose ALL of what I’m about to expose? Probably not (and I might take this down as fast as I post it, lol). However, since I’m in the throes of Solar Arc Pluto conjunct my Ascendant currently, it feels like the “right” time to further work through a bunch of shit that happened to me 20 years ago when Transit Pluto was conjunct my Ascendant, and how there are echoes of this part of my life in the present day. This isn’t strictly an exercise for my own benefit, though – I’m hoping that other people will benefit from this post in some way, and in seeing the trends and themes that can come back around through an astrological lens. I really hope that this blog post […]
Let’s talk about Circe (asteroid number 34). I really do like Circe, just like I like all of the “witchy” asteroids (Hecate, Cybele, etc.), which means I want to give her a fair shake. Due to patriarchal bullshit (and that kind of nonsense), over the years she has seemed to devolve into some kind of seductress, temptress, or man-hater – and none of the above is entirely accurate in my opinion. I also think that she represents more than just magical abilities and gifting in a natal chart, though I do think that this is obviously a big part of what she represents.**if you are more of a watcher than a reader, here is a video I did on Circe Before we get into the mythology, here is what I think she can represent in a natal chart:-Isolation and exile (this can be the self-imposed kind, the kind that is forced upon a person, or both).-Feelings of being intruded upon (this can be real or imagined, but I do think defense of the feeling of being intruded upon comes into play with Circe).-Feelings of loneliness – this is actually a major theme that I didn’t touch on in the YouTube video, but I do think it exists and I also think that this could be some of the reason why she turned humans into animals and kept them on her island.-Where you need to “meet your match,” both within yourself and in relationships with other people (say, via synastry, etc.).-Magical […]
If you are more of a watcher than a reader, here is a link to a YouTube video I did on this I decided to finally make the journey into exploring the Gates of the Avatar more. Initially, I knew that I would probably have to dive into the Bible a little bit to do this (and back in January this wasn’t something I was ready to touch with a 100 ft. pole). The past couple of weeks I have been exploring religious-y themes in an astrological context (and thinking about it this way bothered me). It wasn’t until I started thinking about it the other way around – that it’s the Bible that has some astrological ties – that I felt more comfortable exploring everything. And here we are now, lol. Just as a side note: I am not a religious person so there is no preaching or any bullshit going on from this end of the screen. I feel like to explain how I’ve started working with the Avatar Gates, I have to kind of explain where I came up with the idea in the first place. Originally, when I first started looking into the Avatar Gates, I did so because I noticed that the Avatar Gates (at 15-degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) were the midpoints of the different squares within the Galactic Grand Cross (which seems like they could be important within the greater function of the Galactic Grand Cross – this part I am still […]
