Astrological Ramblings

**Here is the video that I did that goes along with this blog post** This is Part II in the continuation of the series on the US’s Pluto’s Return, which started in earnest in early 2020 and will go on through December 27, 2025 (once Transit Pluto clears 2 Aquarius 33 in the sky which is within the 5-degree separating orb I use for transit to natal planets). This year when the US has it’s “birthday” on July 4, 2021 feels really important from a Solar Return perspective since 2022 is when transit Pluto comes home “exactly” to it’s natal position – this happens on February 20, 2022, on July 12, 2022, and on December 27, 2022. You might be asking yourself “can countries have Solar Returns?” Lol I don’t really know. I mean, if people have them, I don’t see any reason why a country couldn’t have them, too. Natalie and myself were talking about this a couple of months ago – if it is possible to look at a Solar Return for a country. We both kind of came to the conclusion that there really wasn’t any reason you couldn’t do a Solar Return chart for a country (in theory). If nothing else, it might give some ideas about what the country (any country’s Solar Return you might look at) will be going through during any given year. In saying all of that, it would make the Solar Return’s for the US for 2021 through 2022, and also […]
Lately I’ve seen so many different posts on the different forums that I creep on and articles written on different astrology websites about Transit Venus going Retrograde. Generally, these posts tend to have a slightly more negative slant to them (or dare I even say some fear?) involved in the line of questioning and phrasing. I think a lot of this has to do with the general negative or difficult view of retrograde planets in general, but Transit Venus Retrograde (or even Transit Retrograde Planets in general) aren’t universally a negative thing. I’m actually quite partial to them in general. They absolutely serve a purpose, even if they impact your chart in a “challenging” way (either in your actual Natal Chart or via Transits, Progressions, etc). Venus Retrograde is a particularly interesting planet to go retrograde because out of all the planets, Venus goes Retrograde the least often. It will be Retrograde from May 13, 2020 through June 26, 2020. When looking at how Venus Retrograde will impact your own Natal Chart, it’s really important to look at the house cusps in your chart that are ruled by the Venusian planets (ie: those that are ruled by Taurus and Libra). Specifically pay attention to the house cusp that is ruled by Taurus, though, for these are the areas of life that will be most heavily impacted. Venus Direct is thought to point more towards Libra, while Venus Retrograde is thought to point more towards Taurus (hence why the Taurus ruled […]
I have been doing quite a few Solar Return Charts recently for people (which gave me the idea for this blog posting), and when people want their Solar Return Chart done I always have to include a section about the yearly Time Lord. This is done in a Part I (Solar Return Chart) and Part II (Yearly Time Lord) fashion, since the time lord is taken from the Natal Chart (but can still be used with the Solar Return). Personally, I feel that when looking at the year ahead from birthday to birthday, the Time Lord is far too important to leave out. First off, the notion behind the Time Lord comes from an old ass technique used by Hellenistic Astrologers to predict future events (and when I say “old ass technique,” I’m talking about this shit being used back in 200 BC or so). Now a days, the people that actually use this technique use what is known as Annual Profections. Essentially, starting from the Ascendant in the Natal Chart, each House of the chart represents a specific year of life (and depending on how old you are turning on your next birthday will show you what “House Year” you’re about to enter into). Here is a chart to quickly show you what Time Lord year you’re currently in or are about to enter into: 1st House- Ages 0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, etc..2nd House-Ages 1, 13, 25, 37, 49, 61, 73, etc…3rd House-Ages 2, 14, 26, […]
I want to start this blog post off by saying how deeply sorry I am to everyone involved in this absolutely tragic event (bar the perpetrator, fuck that guy). I am sorry for the people who lost their lives and for those who lost loved ones, and for the victims who lived through this at the Wal-Mart and are recovering and healing both physically and mentally the best they can. I am also deeply sorry to the residents of El Paso, and the fact that this event had the capacity to make y’all feel a little less safe in your typically safe city. As a fellow Texan, my heart breaks with you and I hope that each and every one of you is able to heal, in as complete a manner as you can, in your own time. And honestly, I’m fucking pissed off about the whole thing as well. I imagine a lot of people are. It’s my being pissed off about the whole thing that has made me look into not only the possible astrological reasons for the senseless violence that occurred on August 3, 2019, but also into violence as a whole within the United States. Like, why (us) Americans have such big dicks for violence of all kinds…. and come on, you know it’s true, collectively we seem to get off on it. (The US and any possible astrological correlations with violence will be explored in another blog post another time…for now I will be focused […]
