Galactic Center Thoughts part XIX

**Here is the video that goes along with this post**

I have been thinking about several different things recently in connection to the Galactic Center – this blog post might feel like it’s kind of all over the fucking place, but I will try to streamline it the best way I can.
**Just as a general disclaimer, I am in no way, shape or form claiming to be an expert on the GC. While at this point I do feel like I have a somewhat decent handle on how it functions in a natal chart, I am in no way saying that I am absolutely correct about any of this. I am literally just fucking with astrology here and tossing out some ideas.**

The first thought that came to my mind recently has to do with retrograde planets and how retrograde motion and the GC change the way that a planet functions. Retrograde motion DOES seem to have an affinity for the Galactic Center due to this changing of the way planets function. However, I got to thinking about this a little bit more, specifically retrograde planets being conjunct the GC – what the hell happens here? I mean, since the GC changes things, it almost seems like a planet that happened to be conjunct the GC that was Rx might actually find itself functioning from direct motion (almost like the GC changes that planet from retrograde to direct). None of the planets that I have conjunct the GC are retrograde, so I don’t have any personal experience in this area. I might be reaching out to some of you all soon that have Rx planets conjunct the GC to see HOW those planets most naturally function? Does the meaning of the planet retrograde seem to feel more “right” to you, or do you feel like the planet naturally functions from direct motion (even if it is Rx).
-On the total flip side of this, I could see the Retrograde motion of a planet being conjunct the GC actually ending up being amplified (I wouldn’t rule it out going this way, either).
-What got me thinking about this in the first place is how retrograde planets seem to jive better with the energy of the sign where it would usually find itself in detriment (for instance, Mercury Retrograde might actually do better in Sagittarius, where Mercury is traditionally in detriment, rather than Gemini…where Mercury Rx feels fucking noisy). I started to think about this possible change, and it got me to thinking about what the GC might do to Rx planets that happen to be conjunct it. The verdict is still out on this one, but damn is my mind buzzing lol.

I also wanted to toss out an idea about what I mean when I talk about the GC being a place where “downloads” come from. I do think that these “downloads” are probably the strongest when there is something conjunct the GC (like a planet or Chiron – something tangible in the sky). I have made mention before that the GC could be where “downloads” come from other entities (like E.T.’s, spirit guides, etc), but I want to toss another idea out there – what if the downloads are coming from one’s “higher self” in some cases? Let me explain where I’m coming from (and just for the record, you don’t have to agree with what I’m about to say):
-It is my belief that when we incarnate on this Earth, in this life (or any lifetime), that we leave some our soul in what I call the “in-between” to “charge.” I don’t think we ever bring our WHOLE soul into an incarnation (except MAYBE when we are in our very first incarnation and our very last incarnation). Normally we may only need to bring 50% of our soul, 20% of our soul, 95% of our soul, etc. in any given incarnation. How much of our soul we bring into each lifetime probably depends heavily on WHAT we hoped to accomplish in each incarnation (some incarnations might take more “soul power” to get through, while others might take much less). So some of us is left in the in-between to charge. While we’re up there charging or whatever word you want to use, I think this “higher self” does try to reach out to the parts of our soul here on Earth in 3D physical form. The GC might very well be a way that our higher selves are able to contact our current forms, and having planet conjunct the GC might be a vehicle for this contact between the two parts of us to come together. Perhaps the planetary archetype gives some clues as to what kind of contact needs to be made.
**I still think it’s possible that the GC is also a lifeline to things outside of our higher selves – E.T.’s, other spirit guides, etc. This was just ONE possibility that I don’t think I had touched on yet, and I had meant to a while back.
**Sagittarius energy, where the GC falls, is half man/half horse, half on the ground and half head in the clouds. THIS right here feels very higher self/current physical self in nature as it is.

Retrograde Planets part II

**Just for reference, here is the original post I did on retrograde planets**
**Lol just for good measure, here is the first YouTube Video about this stuff, and here is the second You Tube Video.**

This is a post I have been wanting to write for a while, but outside of work for my clients and taking care of my son, my focus has been very preoccupied with the Galactic Center, lol. I’m still doing the GC stuff (obviously), but in my GC research I have been looking at retrograde planets closely. Specifically Jupiter Rx, but ALL retrograde planets seem to have an affinity for the GC energy…..or rather, retrograde motion in general just seems to have an affinity for the GC. Both the GC and Rx Motion CHANGE the planet involved.

It’s this change that I want to talk about for a second….or more than a second hahahaha (I know my ass can get wordy as fuck), especially this change in terms of a planet being retrograde and the notions of exaltation, domicile, detriment, and fall (the 1st two of the five essential dignities of the planets – the notions of domicile/detriment and exaltation/fall). If I’m totally honest, I certainly take the ideas of domicile/detriment and exaltation/fall into consideration when I read charts for people, but I’m not ride or die with them. I think they are something to consider, but just because someone has a planet exalted doesn’t mean that planet won’t have issues, and just because someone has a planet in fall doesn’t mean that planet is totally fucked. Too often I feel like people rely on these to read when you have to take the WHOLE chart into account. I feel the same way about the notions of Triplicity, Bounds, and Face, and even the notion of the “benefic” planets and the “malefic” planets. While I think all of this should be taken note of when chart reading (I’m not saying it doesn’t have any merit), my reading of a chart doesn’t hinge on any of this stuff. However, it did get me thinking about how retrograde motion might actually change the notion of the condition of the planet (regardless of what the condition).

PlutoScorpioTaurusNo ExaltationNo Fall
Table of Planetary Dignities

**I want to point out that it is decently debated WHAT the exaltation and fall placements should be for Uranus and Neptune (or if they should even have them at all). Pluto has not been “assigned” a place of exaltation or fall as of now. If you are someone that doesn’t like using the outer planets, or don’t think that they should have exaltation or fall placements, just suspend disbelief or whatever for the time being.**

The table above is of the planets and of the signs that they will naturally find themselves at “home”/domicile, in detriment, exalted, and in fall (as you can see). But I do have to wonder….what happens when you throw an Rx planet in the mix. It seems like this might actually change the whole fucking thing around (and if not the whole fucking thing, it might at least change things around in terms of the domicile/home and detriment placements).

What is the actual nature of the planets via Retrograde Motion? What do they need to express? The table below does not cover all of it by any means, but these are some ideas of what they might need to express:

PlanetWhat the planet needs by way of Retrograde Motion
MercuryMercury Rx needs to lean into it’s intuition and learn to trust it. It also needs to take information step by step and piece by piece so that it can see the bigger picture (and using it’s intuition in order to do this).
VenusVenus Rx needs to, above all else, learn to love and value itself most of all. Venus Rx points more towards Taurus than Libra, so a focus on self-worth and self-value is paramount here.
MarsMars Rx needs to only take action on things that actually serve it’s soul purpose. Anything that doesn’t actually serve the soul’s growth might be hard for them to take action on. The action here tends to be turned more inward than anything. Any action that is taken will be thought about making the actions that are taken not as fast.
JupiterJupiter Rx is very intuitive and will know things before they know WHY they know them. The things that is most important for Jupiter Rx people to do is break things down backwards to figure out why they know what they know from a logical and rational place.
SaturnSaturn Rx needs to become the master of its own reality, but this needs to be done in whatever way feels the most natural for the person. This might differ considerably from how they were “taught” reality should be lived and experienced (and while not universal, there is usually conditioning that needs to be deconditioned surrounding such).
UranusUranus Rx usually has something going on with detachment and with needing to detach from previous lifetime trauma and hang-ups. In some cases, though, I have found that there is TOO much detachment and Uranus Rx actually needs to reattach. It also needs to make sure that it can see things from an omniscient point of view, and to be as individuated as possible.
NeptuneNeptune Rx needs to feel connected to the divine, and they need to live their lives being connected to both the conscious and the unconscious. Neptune Rx also deals with breaking the illusion that Neptune by direct motion can deal in. The breaking of illusions may not feel completely comfortable to Neptune Rx, but this is the way this energy is “supposed” to go (and something it wants to achieve).
PlutoPluto Rx needs to feel like they are on the “right track.” If it happens to NOT be on the right track, things in the life of the Pluto Rx native will feel incredibly “off.” Being on the “right track” for the soul is so important for Pluto Rx people because more than anything these people want to reconnect with the Creator – doing what they are here on Earth to accomplish, to stay on their soul’s “task,” and then move the fuck on to whatever comes next.

This is NOT AT ALL THE FULL SCOPE of how the different planets via retrograde motion might need to function. These are just a few ideas for each planet tossed out. Here are some ideas behind my thought process that Retrograde planets might actually be more “at home”/domicile in the planet’s traditional sign of detriment, and that they might be more in detriment in the planet’s traditional sign of domicile:

Mercury Rx needs to learn how to trust it’s intuition and USE it’s intuition to to be able to see the big picture. Intuition is very much a Sagittarius thing (other sign’s energies are intuitive, too, but Sagittarius definitely is). Sagittarius can also see the big picture (which is something Mercury Rx needs to be able to). It almost feels like, for this reason, Mercury Rx might actually be more “at home”/domicile in Sagittarius than it would be in Gemini (where, honestly, Mercury Rx might have difficulty being able to see the big picture through the Micro lens of Gemini energy). Mercury Rx in Gemini just feels like it would get too bogged down with all the information that it is taking in to be able to see the big picture easily (or even to intuit what information they need to be taking in IN the first place).

Venus Rx needs to be able to love and value itself – this is absolutely critical for these people. For this reason, Venus Rx points more towards the Taurus part of the Venus equation than the Libra part (Libra deals too much with close relationships and other people for Venus Rx to be able to express itself comfortably here). For this reason, Taurus probably IS a good domicile fit for Venus Rx, but I also feel like Venus’ traditional place of detriment, Aries, is a good fit for Venus Rx. Aries energy can be more self-focused, and for Venus Rx to be able to love and value itself the way that it needs to, Aries energy might be more comfortable for it to flow through.

Mars Rx needs to be able to focus on what actions it needs to take that will actually serve the needs of the soul’s purpose. This person can have issue reacting to things quickly because they will generally have more thoughts about what actions they should be taking in the first place (perhaps even more deliberation about the action needs to occur for this person). This can actually feel pretty frustrating to the person, and I would think it might feel even more frustrating in an action-oriented sign like Aries. However, in a sign like Libra which is inclined to do more balancing/thinking over acting (and this sign certainly deliberates about stuff), Mars Rx might actually be LESS frustrated in this sign.

Jupiter Rx can see the big picture and is extremely intuitive – this planet will “know” things from an intuitive place before knowing WHY it knows this from a logical and rational perspective. THIS is important for Jupiter Rx to actually understand what it intuitively knows in the first place (and we all know that “understanding” is a big deal for Jupiter regardless of if direct or Rx). It seems as if Jupiter Rx might not be that comfortable in Sagittarius, or at the very least would have a difficult time breaking down what they know from backwards motion to make any kind of logical and rational sense of what it does know. However, is actually seems like Gemini energy might be a good thing for Jupiter Rx, allowing this planet to do what it needs to do through the vehicle of Gemini energy (which is more of a micro lens, and that’s exactly what Jupiter Rx needs).

Saturn Rx needs to be able to become the master of its own reality and figure out what they want their crystalized version of reality to look like. Oftentimes, this is very different than how the person was raised to think reality should be lived. Since Capricorn energy tends to be more structured and traditional than Saturn Rx actually should function, Saturn Rx may not be as comfortable in Capricorn as Saturn direct is. However, Saturn Rx might actually BE comfortable in Cancer, especially with the more personalized approach to crystalizing one’s reality needs to be taken here. There is also USUALLY some deconditioning from family patterns that needs to happen with Saturn Rx (not always, but often enough to mention) that Saturn Rx in Cancer might actually help this deconditioning to happen more easily.

Uranus Rx need to be able to individuate itself further. It also needs to learn how to detach from any previous lifetime trauma (or even trauma from this lifetime). Detachment is an interesting notion here in general, because Uranus is detached but in Aquarius where Uranus is normally at “home,” there might be too much detachment from things that they shouldn’t detach from (such as the concept of the self which I have certainly seen with Uranus Rx in a chart). However, in Leo, Uranus Rx might be able to detach and individuate itself in such a way that it doesn’t lose it’s sense of “ego” or “identity” all together (rather, this might be FOUND in the sign of Leo more easily).

Neptune Rx needs to be able to break through the illusions that Neptune direct may be completely comfortable living in. Not only that, but it also needs to be AWARE of these illusions (again, Neptune direct may not be as aware of this). This planet Rx also needs to be connected to both the collective conscious and collective unconscious. For these reasons, I could definitely see how Neptune Rx could function more comfortable being able to express itself through the discernment of Virgo energy over the Pisces energy.

Pluto Rx needs to be on its particular soul path (whatever that is) or else it will feel like things in its life are “off.” The ability to STAY on the soul’s path is important here, which is why Pluto Rx might actually function better in the sign of Taurus (which is stable and secure, perhaps to a fault at times). While Pluto direct may be able to deal with the chaos that Scorpio energy can be inclined, Pluto Rx probably would feel more at home in a more “stable” sign.

Just as a visual, here is what I’m talking about in table form (flipping things around):

Retrograde PlanetPossible Domicile/Home PlacementPossible Detriment Placement
Mercury RxSagittarius Gemini
Venus RxAries (I would also keep Taurus here)Libra
Mars RxLibraAries
Jupiter RxGeminiSagittarius
Saturn RxCancerCapricorn
Uranus RxLeo Aquarius
Neptune RxVirgoPisces
Pluto RxTaurusScorpio

To bring the GC into all of this (because of course I will), since the GC and retrograde motion both seem to change/charge/amplify/warp the planets (et. al) that are conjunct the GC or involved in the axis in some way, it does make me question what happens to planets that are retrograde that happen to be conjunct the GC. Does it amplify the Retrograde motion? I could totally see this happening. Or, on the flip side of this, does an Rx planet conjunct the GC end up getting changed causing it then to function more like a planet via direct motion? THIS also seems possible. I will have to sit and think about this one some more, and play around with some charts.

Galactic Center Thoughts part XV or: some more thoughts about how to use the GC in chart weaving

In this blog post, I am going to play around with a couple of charts to explain how to MAYBE use the GC in chart weaving and the important pieces of the “Galactic Center Puzzle” in each of these charts that would want to be considered if you were to read the chart through the lens of the GC. I’m not really sure if “reading the chart through the lens of the GC” is the right way to put that, but since I’m still learning how to incorporate this shit myself, breaking the chart down via the lens of the GC feels most “correct” to say (and then weaving that shit back together).
**Here is the video that goes along with this blog post for all you that would rather watch than read**
**I also went into some of this without chart visuals in my last blog post**

I will not be going over either of the charts in completion – just kind of pointing out exactly what should be looked at when reading from the lends of the GC.

Chart No. 1

This chart belongs to someone I know pretty well (or, lol, I think I know pretty well…..but you can think you know someone well all day long and not really know them at all – that’s another discussion for another day hahahaha I digress). Anywho, as you can see, they have the GC in the 9th House and Neptune is conjunct the GC within a couple of degrees. Their Mars and Jupiter are also within the window of orb that is being looked at for conjunctions as well, but since Neptune is the closest to the GC this will be the planet that is probably the most impacted BY the GC (getting a good majority of it’s “downloads” or it’s energy or whatever). This will also cause the GC to influence the way the 9th House areas of life play out for them (warped, charged, amplified, distorted, etc.). Things to consider here when reading:
-Their 12th House, with Pisces on the cusp, will BEND to Neptune and the GC in the 9th. This causes 12th House notions (like spirituality, escape, self-sabotage, and other 12th House notions) to BEND to 9th House notions (like religion, metaphysics, travel of the mind and body, expansion, higher learning, and other 9th House notions). The GC will give an amplification/warping/charge to the things from the 12th House that bend to the 9th House. You would probably want to do the same thing with the 1st House (since Aries is on the cusp and ruled by Mars) and the 8th House (since Scorpio is on the cusp and ruled by Mars via traditional rulership…if you use traditional rulership). The 9th House will bend to itself since Sagittarius is on the 9th House cusp and Jupiter is in this house (and really, feel like it would amplify this house even more). ALL of these houses that dispose of themselves to the planets conjunct the GC will have the GC influencing the way that they BEND to the planet involved.
-I didn’t post the declinations, but Mars and Jupiter are both out of bounds. Being close to the GC seems like it would charge these planets even more (spoiler alert: with this person it does).
-This person has no conjunctions to the Galactic Anti-Center (GaC). While there is no planet there to take the impact from the shocking that I do think happens here, this part of the chart is still acting a lightning rod – meaning that part of the chart is getting zapped from something like the overflow from the GC. In this case, the GaC is in the 3rd House. If you knew this person the way that I do, you would know that areas of life dealing with communication are a real Achilles Heel. This person thinks they communicate well (but they don’t – this isn’t just with me, either, but just in general). Up until recently this person would not have admitted this (they may have been blinded to just what the issues actually were, and may still be blinded to some of them today) . The 3rd House areas of life do sustain “damage” (this isn’t just in this person’s case, but the GaC in everyone’s chart will probably sustain some damage just due to the energy overflow that occurs from the GC, shooting over to the GaC).
-This person doesn’t not have Jupiter Rx (or Mercury Rx)
-This person has no trines to the GC. The Ascendant is CLOSE to being a trine, but a little too far out of orb for me to count.
-As I’ve mentioned before, when there are no trines, I think this makes Jupiter and Mercury very important to the translation of the stuff needing to be brought down to Earth from the GC – whatever exactly that is, and this seems like it’s a little different for everyone. This person’s drives, creativity, and beliefs are going to be charged here (among other Neptune, Mars and Jupiter things), and if they aren’t translated well it doesn’t seem like much could be done with this energy. Since they are also sextile the GaC, the trines/sextiles help to ground the lightning strikes to the GaC. Jupiter and Mercury FEEL like they could act as de-facto translator and grounder in the absence of the trine/sextile to the GC just in general.
–In this person’s case, since Jupiter is conjunct the GC (and already absorbing some of the GC energy), I feel instinctively like Mercury is probably the planet to look at here since it isn’t involved with the GC. There Mercury is already a little difficult since Mercury (what needs to be expressed here is communication and other Mercury things) is conjunct the Descendant (and the Descendant is like the shadow side of a person – the parts of you that you might know exist but don’t really want to deal with). It makes sense that this person would actually know that they might not be the greatest at communicating (perhaps they want to be pleasing when they do this, or perhaps they function from one of the Libra darksides (like apathy) when they communicate), but since it’s conjunct the Descendant it might get “ignored”. For this person to understand their own Mercury like the back of their hand (which is also more difficult since it is combust the Sun) just feels really important to be able to even BEGIN to translate all the energy at the GC.

Chart No. 2

This chart belongs to me – the only reason I’m using it here is because I don’t have to ask clearance to use my own chart lol. As you can see, the GC is in my 1st House, with Venus and Uranus within a degree of the GC. Saturn and Neptune are within the window of orb that is being looked at, but for this blog post I’m going to leave Neptune out of the equation (I’ve never really counted it as conjunct the GC, personally). This will cause the GC to amplify/warp/charge/intensify the way that I express myself naturally, the way that I approach the world, and other 1st House things. Some stuff to consider when reading from the lens of the GC:
-The 2nd House with Capricorn on the cusp, the 3rd House with Aquarius on the cusp, the 6th House with Taurus on the cusp, and the 11th House with Libra on the cusp will all bend to Saturn, Uranus and Venus respectively (and the 1st House and the GC) – these different areas of life by house feed the GC, essentially (for lack of better term).
-I didn’t post the declinations, but Venus and Uranus are out of bounds. The Moon is OOB, too, but the Moon is too far out of orb to be considered conjunct the GC at 16-degrees Capricorn.
-Chiron is opposite the GC and conjunct the GaC in the 7th House in Gemini. This makes Chiron the real lightning rod here. The whole area opposite the GC functions this way, but when you see a planet, Chiron, a Major Angle, the North or South Nodes (and probably other things that haven’t been looked at yet in the research) conjunct the GaC, this planet (et. al) is going to take a majority of the impact from the lightning strikes from the GC. This probably makes my Chiron more damaged than I’m even aware of (and I am aware there is damage there – I just probably don’t realize how much). This will manifest in 7th House areas of life (close relationships). I think people can probably fill in other gaps lol with Chiron in the 7th House. There
-Jupiter is trine the GC in the 4th House in Aries and it is also Rx. Having Jupiter Rx probably does tune me in to the GC, and having it trine the GC probably does allow the stuff that is “downloaded” or charged from the GC to come down to Earth. The stuff from the GC that needs to come “down to Earth” will use Jupiter as its vehicle to do this – this will come by way of beliefs & truth (and other Jupiter things) through the core of my being, home, family, roots (and other 4th House things) in an independent, pioneering, and/or even aggressive way (among other Aries notions). This makes Jupiter Rx really important in my chart, and I need to understand it like the back of my hand since it is the ONLY planet trine the GC (and able to “do” this translation).

I will probably do some other examples of this if I can get clearance to do so (if anyone wants to volunteer their charts for this purpose, I don’t have to use your name or anything – just a picture of the chart and something short like what I posted above to give some ideas about how to work with the GC energy).

Galactic Center Musings Part VI

If you are more of a watcher than a reader, here is a youtube video that covers similar stuff

What exactly IS the truth? Really, think about this question. Because if you really think about it, the truth is a very relative thing to the person who finds something to be true. I only bring this particular notion up since in today’s musings about the Galactic Center, I will be exploring some people who are known for their truth seeking, but not everyone who hears what they have to say (or reads what they write) thinks they are telling the truth (or thinks the truth they are seeking/finding is actually true). Some people think they’re fucking crazy crackpots. Y’all probably already know where I’m going with this, lol.

Yes – today I will be looking at some well-known “conspiracy theorists” (I fucking hate that term) and correlations with the GC. Why do I hate that term? Because it’s fucking dismissive of anything that questions the official narrative that is sold off to us at the highest dollar. You start asking questions that don’t align with official stance on things, and you’re given the label of “(crazy) conspiracy theorist” to shut you up. Even when the official narrative on things makes NO fucking sense (lolololol like JFK’s assassination and the magic bullet theory?! GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!! Does anyone actually buy that bullshit still?) I guess if you are the sort to buy that theory, lol, probably just stop reading now – this post will probably just piss you off.
**Full disclosure: I am *a little bit* of a “conspiracy theorist” myself. No, I don’t subscribe to the “flat Earth” conspiracy theories, nor am I the least bit interested in that dumb ass QANON shit. However, there are most definitely things that should be questioned that we are told to be true. Really, for the type of conspiracy theorist I am, I prefer the term “critical and free thinker.” I don’t think along party lines – we’ll keep it at that (you won’t find an echo chamber here).

I also want to mention as a disclaimer: These people that I am going to talk about….I don’t necessarily agree with some (or any) of the things that they do or say (or have done and/or said). They just have some GC contacts and are known for “seeking truth” (or being involved in the conspiracy community in some way). Truth seeking, questioning, and ultimately understanding is just VERY GC in nature (or feels that way to me, anyway).

I also want to bring up quickly, because I know that I have mentioned this before – the GC also seems to function a little like Out of Bound Planets do (or planets, etc. conjunct the GC seem like they *could* be charged in a similar way to Out of Bounds planets). Out of Bounds planets dance to the beat of their own drummer, and can function in a whole myriad of ways – like the genius, like the renegade, like madness, like the weirdo, etc. The way an Out of Bounds planet might function is really dependent on the whole chart and the contacts that the OOB planet makes in the chart. There is a very Uranian flavor to these planets, much in the same way that there is a Uranian flavor to the GC. To me they feel very very similar (or at least SOME kind of similarity).

The natal chart above belongs to Alex Jones who is a well known conspiracy theorist with his websites and He has no time of birth on record, so I have just set the chart to 12 pm (this will work fine for this purpose). Love him or hate him (or don’t know WHAT to make of him), he is well known for “seeking his truth” – along with going on rants about gay frogs and men with demonic mustaches (which, honestly, might be one of the funniest things ever – the mustache rant). He has been correct about some things (exposing Bohemian Grove comes to mind first) and questioning the 9/11 narrative early on (which, lol, absolutely DESERVES to be questioned). He has also said some really atrocious things as well (the shit about Sandy Hook – though, to his credit, he has apologized for this several times….the damage has been done though and I get why people don’t want to let this one of his go – it was pretty atrocious).

As you can see, he has some GC contacts. He has the North Node conjunct the Galactic Center (this is a fucking tight ass conjunction). His Jupiter is NOT Rx (and he’s also not born under the shadow period) – so I’m not sure HOW much intuition actually plays into him and his seeking for truth. With that North Node in Sag (conjunct the GC), part of his soul mission definitely seems to deal with the quest for truth and understanding, but he might not let intuition guide him enough on this quest like he should (and maybe if he had, he wouldn’t have gone off about some of the things that he has gone off about). There is also a protective element that I have mentioned about Jupiter Rx in relation to charts with GC contacts – having stuff conjunct the GC (both a “charging” element and protective), having Jupiter Rx (intuitive and protective), and having a trine to/from the GC (where GC stuff is translated “down to Earth”) does seem to allow GC inclined people to fair better in their quest for truth and exposing of the truth (or anything related to the GC) than those that are missing one of the before mentioned. Him NOT having Jupiter Rx does seem to cause him to lack the “protection” necessary to make his truth known, and even an intuitive element. When I say “protection” here, I mean he has been slaughtered via the press and pretty much canceled everywhere – that protective element just doesn’t seem to be here in his case. He also has a trine to the GC, Chiron @ 17 Aries 19. This is a wide trine, but is within the window of degrees that I’m looking at right now (roughly 16-degrees Aries to 6-degrees Taurus & 16-degrees Leo to 6-Virgo in his case, or 10-degrees applying/separating from an exact trine with the GC). Chiron trine the GC is interesting because I knee-jerk feel like the “translation” or “bringing the GC stuff” down to Earth would be painful in some way in his case (even if it’s what he’s supposed to do, there does seem to be something “painful” about it just because of Chiron’s involvement). He also has the opposition to the GC (both the South Node and Saturn are opposite the GC/conjunct the Galactic Anti-Center (GaC)), which as I’ve mentioned before seems to make the individual pretty polarizing (having planets BOTH conjunct the GC and conjunct the GaC seems to do this) – and this label of being polarizing definitely fits him well. Just having a planet conjunct the GaC without a conjunction to the GC ALSO seems to make an individual very polarizing as well.

This natal chart belongs to Donald Trump. Not well known for being a part of the conspiracy community before taking office, while in office he definitely seemed to acquire this label (especially since he kind of egged on the QANON shit…which, by the way, is some of the dumbest conspiracy shit ever and one big giant psy-op). While I’m not personally sure how truthful a lot of what he said actually was (though, lol, HE seemed to think what he was saying was truthful), he did bring some important things to the attention of the people. Specifically here I’m thinking about his “fake news” shit he would say (and probably still does say). Now, I do think THIS part he was on the right track about but he didn’t SAY this correctly. If he would’ve said “ALL news is fake” (and, honestly, to a certain extent I think that is true….media stations are well aware of their bases much like politicians, and deliver the new accordingly), I might have been able to get on board with this one particular thing he would say (not with the rest of the bullshit he did or said, just this particular thing). Instead though, he would call all news fake that wasn’t more conservatively aligned (spoiler alert – that shit is “fake” too) – he needed be calling their asses out too (Fox News and everything like it)…..but he knew intuitively it didn’t serve him to do this (he, too, knew how to pander to his base).

Let’s talk about Teflon Don’s chart for a second (and this nickname does actually seem to fit him – nothing ever seems to stick to him, and nothing probably will). He has his Moon conjunct the GC along with the South Node. He is VERY well acquainted with the energy of the GC, and even more so since he has Jupiter Rx in his chart. He ALSO has a trine to the GC, Mars @ 26 Leo 48 (which is conjunct his Ascendant). Having all three of these makes me think that he has an element of “protection” (specifically the Jupiter Rx thing and conjunction to the GC) which allows him “safe passage” to seek his “truth” and share his “truth” out with the rest of the world (even if that “truth” isn’t something that is even true….like I mentioned at the start of this article, truth really is relative – I know we’d like to THINK some things are true universally, but that just isn’t the case most of the time). I won’t lie, lol, I find it a little annoying how “protected” he seems to be in this case. He also has planets opposing the GC, the Sun, North Node, and Uranus. This adds the polarization element to his character, which, lol, absolutely fits. Some people really love him, and some people really hate him. Regardless of HOW you feel about him, he definitely questioned things (which, I think, DID cause other people to question things, too, for better or worse – on BOTH sides of the aisle and all the shades of gray in-between that aisle).

This chart belongs to Bill Cooper, who is known for writing the book “Behold a Pale Horse,” in which he warned of a bunch of different global conspiracies (everything from AIDS, “targeting” of certain races, and aliens). He doesn’t have anything conjunct the GC, but he does have Venus opposite the GC (Venus conjunct the GaC) which gives him the polarization element that I’ve mentioned I think occurs with people who have the oppositions to the GC. He is also NOT born under Jupiter Rx, and lacking BOTH a conjunction to the GC AND Jupiter Rx does make me feel like he lacks the “protection” necessary to be able to bring the GC stuff out into the world via “safe passage.” He DOES have TWO trines to the GC, the Ascendant is trine the GC @ 3 Taurus 46 (it’s wide, but it’s there) AND Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is what is conjunct the GaC/opposite the GC (which seems to “heighten” the GC contact here). He also has a trine from the GC to Chiron @ 23 Leo 07 and the North Node @ 20 Leo 53. These trines give him a way to translate the GC truth seeking down to Earth, but it seems he might not have had the “safe passage” needed to do so, well, safely. Venus being conjunct the GaC (but nothing actually conjunct the GC) seems to charge Venus – but the charge is different with the oppositions to the GC. Planets conjunct the GC feel directly charged, whereas planets opposite the GC also seem charged but not directly (or maybe they ARE directly charged….but they are blinded and “clouded” over with light and space dust). Still trying to figure THAT part of the equation out, lol.
**I make the safe passage comment here because he actually ended up dying (some people think the circumstances of his death are weird….or rather, some people think the backstory to the reason that he died is weird). He had a warrant out for his arrest for tax evasion, though he claimed this wasn’t the case and he was really being targeted for “exposing” some of the conspiracies that he exposed. He had been evading this warrant, and Apache County Sherrif’s deputies went to his home to arrest him on a completely different charge (something having to do with an aggravated assault – honestly I’m not real clear on the details) and he ended up getting killed the crossfire (while taking down one of the deputies with him). Would it surprise me if he was “targeted” for writing that book? Not in the least. Would it surprise me if he were really paranoid (or something like that)? Not in the least.

Galactic Center Thoughts part V

This week past week has been incredibly difficult. I’m not someone who is really ever “triggered” by shit (my Capricorn Moon & Saturn conjunct my rising don’t really allow me to pay that much attention to anything that actually might trigger me). “Push through it, bitch!” is what my inner monologue will typically say to me. This week, my inner monologue fell very silent (I’m thinking to myself in my head after everything this week “oh yeah? Inner Ellie voice, you ain’t got shit to say, motherfucker!?”) She didn’t. I was looking at my transits for the past week, and while I already knew I have some dumb-ass shit going on (that I would typically prefer to ignore), I noticed that the transit Sun was also conjunct my natal Chiron. This happens once a year, but this year it hit me incredibly hard with all the other dumb ass shit going on transit wise to my chart. This got me thinking a whole hell of a lot about Chiron…and possible tie-in’s between Chiron and the GC. I also think it’s really interesting that when I wasn’t working on work for my clients or spending time with my Son, the one thing that actually helped me not to smash things this past week was writing, talking, and thinking about the GC.

This post is going to primarily deal with connections (or what feels like connections) between Chiron and the Galactic Center – and it does feel like there is a tie-in between Chiron and the GC *just a little bit* (though I think it’s probably more than just a little bit) – and this tie-in feels like it exists regardless of if the GC makes an aspect with Chiron or not in a natal chart. Obviously, like with everything else, the Chiron/GC connections would probably be stronger in people that actually have Chiron making a contact to the GC, but I do think this connection can be applied just to the energy of the black hole and the asteroid. Natalie and myself talked about this a long while back, that Chiron’s notion of “wounding and healing” seems to jive well with what is known about the GC. Not exactly, I suppose (there are obviously differences), but the notion of transmutation is highlighted with BOTH the GC and Chiron – turning something that is difficult into something that is transformed into another state. I do think the GC can be “difficult,” and we all know that Chiron can be incredibly difficult. It’s a weird thing though, because while I do think the GC can be (and is) difficult, there is almost a *beauty* in the difficulty, kind of like there is almost a *beauty* in the wounding and healing that Chiron deals.

This is a personal anecdote, but one of the questions on the GC questionnaire is “if you were to visualize the conjunction to your GC in a picture or a phrase, what would that look like. Describe it.”
-If I were to answer this question, it would be something like this”
A person is in something like a box – not a full box (the top is open). The walls of the box to the left and the right are closing in on them and they are pushing the walls away from them, using all their strength to do this – to keep from being closed in on. At the same time, a light is either entering them or leaving them (or perhaps both) through the top of their head and illuminates the sky. They are clearly in pain trying to push the walls away, but there is also something divine/ecstatic about the light that is either coming from them or leaving them. Everything about this mental image is pretty dark, but I know the person in this vision is me.
…..this is what the GC is to me, when I think about the GC. There is pain, but there is also something divine (or something like ecstasy) to it as well.

So….where do these Chiron connections kind of come from in the first place (other than what was mentioned above)? Let’s talk for a second about the mythology behind Chiron briefly:
-Chiron was a Centaur, but the most civilized Centaur of the bunch (the rest sound like they were crazy heathens lol). He was a healer, a teacher, a hunter, and well versed in medicine (among other things) thanks to being raised by Apollo and Artemis after being abandoned by his natural parents, Kronos & Philyra. He was also immortal (and differed from the other Centaurs not only in behavior, but also by parentage). One of his half brothers was Zeus/Jupiter (which ties in the GC just a little bit since the GC is in Sagittarius). So, Chiron lives a long life teaching and healing, and at the end of his life he finds himself with Hercules (one of his students) in a cave with Pholus, and some sacred wine from Dionysys is opened at Hercules request. When this wine is opened it “called” all the other less civilized Centaurs to the cave and they got crazy. Hercules starts shooting his poison arrows around, and one ended up shooting Chiron in the thigh (thighs also have a connection to Sagittarius, for this is one of the parts of the body that Sagittarius has domain over…and arrows obviously have a Sagittarius connection, too). Since Chiron was immortal, he couldn’t die like the other Centaurs from this poison arrow – instead he was forced to deal with this pain and there was no release or reprieve. This pain is said to have gone on for 9 days (there is another Sagittarius connection, since Sagittarius is the 9th sign of the Zodiac). Meanwhile, Prometheus was chained to a rock having his liver pecked at day after day by a bird (Zeus had him chained there since he tried to give fire to the people of Earth). Hercules brokered a deal with Zeus to allow Chiron to die and be out of pain (to give up his immortality) in exchange for Prometheus being relieved from his own torment day after day being chained to that rock. Zeus agreed, freed Prometheus, and allowed Chiron to find peace and healing through death. It is said that Chiron was placed in the sky in either the constellations of Sagittarius or Centaurus (it seems like it was one or the other, though some sources say one and some say the other). Either way, there is another connection to Sagittarius. Even just the notion of Chiron being in the constellation Centaurus alludes to Sagittarius.
***I have seen the mythology behind Chiron mentioned a few different ways, so this brief synopsis might differ slightly from how you may have seen it written out before. It gets the general theme across (all of the different versions do, really).

There are definitely some Sagittarian connections to Chiron, but I don’t want to imply that Chiron is actually the ruler of Sagittarius (or the co-ruler of Sagittarius) or anything like that – there is some debate out there about IF Chiron should actually rule (or be a co-ruler) of a certain sign. For example, Virgo is another one that I see tossed around for Chiron (there are definitely some Virgo themes going on with Chiron’s mythology, too). Really though, I can see themes for all the mutable signs with Chiron’s energy and mythology (so I’m in the camp that Chiron shouldn’t rule a specific sign, but rather blends different qualities of all the mutable signs).
-I just wanna make that part clear before I proceed on-
I almost get the feeling that the part of the mythology of Chiron, once he has died and been placed among the constellations, is the part that gels the most with the GC (the changing from immortal to mortal). That sounds kind of backwards since when I think of the GC, I would knee jerk think immortality would line up better with the GC than mortality, but for Chiron mortality (and the ability to die and transform) was a sweet release. I definitely do think the GC can be a kind of “sweet release” – not necessarily through death, but just through the process of transformation (once this transformation, whatever that IS, has occurred). Something has been transformed/transmuted in this process – and there is pain going on here. I do think there is something painful about the GC – actual process of a star getting “eaten” by the GC seems like it would be a “painful” process for the star (if stars have feelings), but it doesn’t seem to actually destroy the star – just transform it into something else. Kind of like Chiron’s immortality being changed into mortality (obviously they aren’t EXACTLY the same, but there does seem to be a common thread).

Chiron is also a “bridge” between Saturn and Uranus – it orbits between them and is thought of as a bridge between the “known” and the “unknown”…or a bridge between the “inner” and “outer” planets. This is ALSO very GC like in nature (since the GC appears to have an affinity for all of the transpersonal planets). The GC is almost like a bridge itself to the “unknown” – since no one knows what is on the other side of the GC or where it goes. They both seem to function as bridges to what we know versus what we don’t know.

Another interesting connection between Chiron and the GC is when Chiron was discovered in November 1977, the GC was conjunct the Ascendant at the time it was found (the “birth chart” for Chiron’s discovery). Now, this may not mean anything at all, but if it doesn’t, that’s one hell of a coincidence.

AND HOLY FUCKING SHIT! FUCKING JUPITER WAS RETROGRADE AT THE TIME CHIRON WAS FOUND! I just noticed this as I was making a YouTube video to go along with this post that I will post later this week (and got really excited when I noticed it in the video, lol). Now, lol, call it coincidence all you want but I think it’s REALLY FUCKING INTERESTING that Chiron was discovered during a Jupiter Rx period (especially when the GC seems to jive so well with Jupiter Rx energy). Oh! And Shiiiiiit! LOOK AT THE FUCKING TRINE FROM THE GC TO SATURN @ 29-DEGREES LEO! A possible way to bring Chiron stuff down to Earth, perhaps?
…..I’m wondering if the reason the connections aren’t more prevalently known between the GC and Chiron as of now is because when Chiron was found, the Ascendant (conjunct the GC) also didn’t have another planet or something conjunct the Ascendant and GC?

To be continued…..down the line 🙂
