I want to start this post off by saying that this will probably be the first of a few different posts (and hopefully a podcast with Natalie to talk about this shit) – so in other words, this single post is NOT a complete synopsis. Also, this post was not created to do the fear mongering thing (and if these posts scare anyone, I truly am sorry). I believe that knowledge is power (typical Sagittarius energy lol), and ultimately the more we know, the less we have to fear. It’s much easier when and if the other fucking shoe drops to be prepared for this possibility than to be left there in the chaos holding your proverbial dick in your hand.
Right now, the United States is going through what is known as a Pluto Return. This occurs when transit Pluto comes home to the same place that it falls in the natal chart. I look at an orb of 5-degrees applying and separating between transit Pluto and natal Pluto. Pluto’s Return actually started in early 2020 and will end for good on December 27, 2025 after transit Pluto goes beyond 2 degrees 33 minutes Aquarius in the sky. There are three dates during the Pluto Return that stand out the most – these are February 20, 2022, July 12, 2022, and December 27, 2022. These dates stand out because these are the dates that BOTH transit Pluto and natal Pluto are at 27 degrees 33 minutes Capricorn (meaning these are the dates that Transit Pluto actually comes “home” to it’s exact natal position). Below you will find a chart with a picture of the US’s natal chart with the transits for the date of February 20, 2022.
So what does a Pluto Return mean for a country? My guess: transformation. You want to pay attention to the house that natal Pluto falls in, the house that Scorpio rules in the chart (this house will also be activated since Scorpio is ruled by Pluto), and aspects made by transit Pluto to other parts of the chart (and the aspects that natal Pluto makes will also be double amplified as well). With natal to transit Pluto in the 2nd House in Capricorn, the US is definitely looking at some kind of transformation (re: breakdown) of the values of the country, of the country’s money and other resources. Those are the areas of life that will probably be most impacted with natal Pluto falling in the 2nd House. Notions of authority and mastery will also be challenged – the way this country exerts it’s authority and mastery over it’s values, over it’s money, and over it’s resources. That 12th House is also being pulled at since Scorpio rules the 12th House cusp, which makes me think that a lot of the unconscious and dark shit that we have going as a country is going to start busting at the seams. This has ALREADY started (duh), but I do think it gets worse. Holding on to power at all costs seems really likely, along with a stark polarization of the collective “mind” of the country. This country has always been kind of one side or the other mentally (picking a side and that bullshit), with natal Pluto opposite natal Mercury, but this will be massively amplified during Pluto’s return since transit Pluto will also be opposite natal Mercury. I do think this pulls at the relationships that we have as country with our fellow country-people since Gemini rules over the 7th House (and Mercury rules Gemini). Since Virgo is intercepted (which is also ruled by Mercury) it feels like we could really use some fucking organization as a country, and could also use some cold hard facts and details – but I think we as a country let pride get in the way too much. Pride over our beliefs without any actual data to back this pride up – this fucking bullshit exacerbates ALL of this. We as country are no stranger to this shit, but I think it gets even more out of control (or something along those lines). The issue seems to be people finding pride in their “side” of things, in their party or whatever, and doing the virtue signaling bullshit that both the right and the left do to prove how aligned they are with either side. I wish people would WAKE THE FUCK UP on both sides and realize that the people in power on their “side” don’t give a single fuck about them as people, their families, or their needs. I get rather, ahem, impassioned, about this, because I feel like THIS will be our “downfall” if we don’t ALL knock this bullshit off.
So….yeah. People need to wake the fuck up in the US. Unfortunately, with transit Pluto conjunct natal Pluto and opposite natal Mercury, I see the polarization getting worse. Almost like mental tunnel vision and not being able to see beyond what their side sees – it feels really obsessive here. This might actually be the reason that as I’ve been looking at these charts, I have had the thought run through my mind “we don’t want your kind here.” This probably does have to do with the different sides of alignment. It would be really great if people from other sides of the political spectrum could come together (both in actual politics and even just regular people) and actually talk about things – see things from other points of view. The same thing could be said about any kind of belief that we as a country can be prideful about and that can also be polarizing (religious, philosophical, etc.). THIS should be encouraged by outlets like the media on BOTH sides – they have a lot of power and they should start fucking using it like they aren’t a gaggle of assclowns. There is a reason that we got to how we are as a country right now, and I think a lot of it has to do with our lack of ability as a country to discern and think critically ….. which is also highlighted by Virgo intercepted in the US’s natal chart and this being lit up with natal Mercury double touched by Pluto (in natal and transit).
Honestly though, Pluto’s return isn’t the most concerning thing about all of this. I am most concerned for when Uranus enters Gemini for good in 2026. I say for “good” because Uranus will enter Gemini in 2025, but will then retrograde back into Taurus for a bit before settling in Gemini for good on April 27, 2026. I’m going to throw some dates up here …. you’ll see why it’s concerning.
**At the time the country was “born” we had Pluto at 27 Capricorn 23 and Uranus at 8 Gemini 55 – Revolutionary Wartook place at this time
**Transit Pluto square Natal Pluto in the 1850s (leading up to the Civil War) & then Uranus in Gemini from 1859 through 1866 – Civil War
Transit Pluto opposing Natal Pluto from 1933 through 1941 (leading up to the US involvement in WWII) & Uranus in Gemini from 1941, then for good in 1942 through 1949 – much of that during WWII (when the US was involved)
The only deviation from this was when Transit Pluto in Libra was square Natal Pluto from about 1980 to 1985. There wasn’t a war at this time (though there were probably some very close calls – closer than we probably realize), and Uranus’ Return (Transit Uranus in Gemini) didn’t follow it. I’m thinking the lack of Transit Uranus entering Gemini probably kept the US from an all out open war with the USSR.
So, that’s some disturbing shit to sit with. Uranus Returns happen roughly every 88 years, and I feel like Uranus holds a “special” place in the US’s chart since Uranus is conjunct the Descendant (meaning that Uranus in the US’s natal chart touches the “shadow side” of the country. Just to be clear, I don’t believe that this is universally the case for every country – you always have to take the WHOLE chart into account. In the case of the US it seems that the coming home of Uranus correlates with war – historically anyway. Transit Uranus won’t actually begin it’s conjunction with natal Uranus until early July 2026 when it hits 3 Gemini 55 in the sky (making that 5-degree applying conjunction I mentioned earlier). Here is a chart for one of the exact dates for when transit Uranus is exactly conjunct natal Uranus on July 27, 2027.
Transit Uranus will also be exactly conjunct natal Uranus on November 6, 2027, and again on May 11, 2028, just FYI.
Pluto’s Return will absolutely be the catalyst for whatever Uranus in Gemini brings. Things like the US Dollar tanking (I don’t know if it will fully collapse….unless the powers that be want that to happen that is – maybe they do). I definitely think there will be some changes with our money, though. This one feels fucking huge. How our money is tied to natural resources might also change – this one also feels possible. Values and the exertion of such also seem very up for grabs. I think, through Pluto’s Return, we as a country need to remember that our fellow country-people brothers and sisters are not the enemy (regardless of our individual differences). This is incredibly important – for Gemini, where Uranus will be after Pluto’s Return, represents “universal brotherhood” at it’s highest vibration. We just have to be able to see beyond all the noise to be able to embrace this. Otherwise, if we don’t, it just seems like complete fucking chaos.
On December 6, 1991 in Austin, Texas, shortly before midnight a police officer on patrol noticed the “I Can’t Believe it’s Yogurt!” shop off of W. Anderson Lane going up in flames and called it in to the fire department, to which AFD arrived and put the fire out. Once the fire was out, AFD noticed that there was much more to all of this than just a run of the mill fire – they found the bodies of four females inside the shop. The victims were Amy Ayers (13 years old), Eliza Thomas (17 years old), and sisters Sarah Harbison (15 years old) & Jennifer Harbison (17 years old). All four had been shot execution style and piled on top of each other, though Amy’s body was found away from the other three – the bullet missed her brain (they found a second bullet wound in her head which the other girls were lacking) which seems to suggest that she moved herself from the pile. Eliza Thomas & Jennifer Harbison were employees of the yogurt shop, while Sarah Harbison and Amy Ayers were said to be visiting Sarah’s sister at work.
There were so many fuckups with this case – so, so many. I’ll link some articles below if you want to read about this case in further depth (since the case is long at nearly 30 years old at this point, I won’t be covering all of the history here). APD was already starting with a fucked crime scene since AFD had to put the fire out (this isn’t their fault – the fire fighters had no idea they would find four bodies in the aftermath of the fire) – and as far as I’m concerned, APD’s biases and just wanting SOMEONE to hang for this crime fucked the case further.
Two men ended up going to prison for this – Michael Scott (who was essentially coerced into confessing – a picture of Scott having a gun held to his head during the 18-hour interrogation by some piece of shit detective that worked for APD showed up online) and Robert Springsteen confessed to these murders. This was 8 years after the murders occurred in September 1999, though these men were on APD’s radar in the early years of the investigation…and it’s like APD just couldn’t let them go – even though there wasn’t any forensic evidence actually linking these guys to the crime. Both Scott and Springsteen were convicted of these murders (in 2002 and 2001 respectively), with Scott getting a life sentence and Springsteen being sentenced to death. In June 2009, both men were released on bond from prison, and in October 2009, both men had the charges against them dropped and they were exonerated. The reasons for such had to do with the coerced confession, the lack of DNA evidence (there was DNA found at the scene that didn’t match either of these men), and the major one – Scott and Springsteen’s confessions were used against one another at their trials which was found to violate the Confrontation Clause of the Sixth Amendment.
So, nearly 30 years later, the families and the city as a whole still have no idea who actually committed this particularly heinous crime – snuffing out the lives of 4 teenage girls whose lives hadn’t even really had the chance to begin yet feels particularly tragic and unnecessary. And I guess this is where myself and people who engage in this kind of astrology come into play … to try to give answers to events that are long overdue for fucking answers.
Since we only know the exact date and that the fire was called in shortly before midnight, I set the chart to 11:40 pm on December 6, 1991. Why 11:40? I don’t know, honestly it’s just the time that I felt instinctually inclined to use as far as when the fire was probably called in by the patrolling officer. A picture of the event chart is found below:
The first thing I notice about this chart is that the chart ruler is Mercury Rx! This stands out because this WHOLE CASE was handled so fucking poorly from the start, and just feels very Mercury Rx in nature. WAY too much BULLSHIT NOISE (which Mercury Rx is known for) across the board. The next thing that stands out to me obviously are the angles (which is what you should always look at first when reading a chart this way).
The Victims – Ascendant @ 7 Virgo 28 The Victims are always indicated by the Ascendant and the chart ruler (in this case, the chart ruler is that Mercury Rx I mentioned before in Sagittarius in the 4th House). By dispositions, you would then go to Jupiter (since it rules Sagittarius) in the 1st House in Virgo conjunct the Ascendant. That means that Mercury and Jupiter go back and forth in a mutual reception (or what feels like back and forth) – so there is no final dispositor for the girls’ side of things but instead the mutual reception between the two. Also, it should be noted that Mercury Rx and Jupiter are in an applying square aspect between one another (it would be applying here since Mercury is moving retrograde/backwards), making it a more insidious square aspect. It should also be noted (which I will talk more about in the Perps section) that Jupiter is the traditional ruler of the Descendant, which makes Jupiter one of the representations OF the perp/perps in this case. This makes this particular square aspect even more insidious since we see tension between the victims and the perp(s), moving closer together in motion.
With the chart ruler in the 4th House, this makes me think that the girls were comfortable and familiar with where they were when this happened, in the Yogurt Shop. I almost get the feeling that the perp/perps were patrons of the shop earlier in the night and came back right before closing at 11 pm, claiming that someone had left something in the shop (a wallet, a pager, a passport or something, perhaps?). The chart being ruled by Mercury RX makes my mind go this way. I also think this patron, or these patrons (and I’m inclined to think that there IS more than one perp here) were people that Jennifer Harbison and Eliza Thomas had served in the store before (or at least ONE of the perps were known to at least ONE of these two girls as someone who came to the shop somewhat often). Harbison and Thomas, one or both of them, didn’t feel threatened by this person (or these people) normally – though all the girls were clearly in more danger than they would’ve thought since Mercury happens to be “under the Sun’s beams” in this chart (Sun & Mercury are within 3-degrees of one another and moving closer together with Mercury being Rx which can indicate the victim(s) being in immediate danger). I have this feeling that they let this person/these people into the shop shortly before closing (hell, maybe this was even AFTER they’d locked the doors and closed up shop) to retrieve this item that was claimed to have been left behind. Once inside, this person/these people attacked, probably surprising the fuck out of them. Another possibility might be a door in the back having been left unlocked on accident (forgotten about, as how Mercury Rx can function – or even NOT forgotten about but just unlocked for the purpose of carrying out closing duties like taking out the trash, etc.), leaving them vulnerable to someone attacking them once they’d closed the shop for the night. I could even see a mix of the two occurring – a patron Harbison and/or Thomas knew comes (back) to the store shortly before or after closing claiming they left something behind in the store (from earlier that day or even some other day – wanting to search the stores “lost and found”). The girls let this person in – they know him as a patron and aren’t concerned. In the meantime, someone comes into the back of the shop (through a back door or some shit that was left unlocked) to keep the girls from escaping once they realized that the person up front wasn’t there to retrieve anything.
The Perpetrator(s) – Descendant @ 7 Pisces 28
In these kinds of charts, the perpetrator(s) are indicated by the Descendant. We are talking about a Pisces Descendant, which makes this chart have TWO planetary rulers for the perp(s), Jupiter by traditional rulership and Neptune by modern rulership (though I will say that since this crime occurred at night, I would give Jupiter a little more weight here). Jupiter falls in Virgo in the first house conjunct the Ascendant, which means that this perpetrator surprised the girls with his actions in a big way (probably by drawing some weapon they weren’t expecting once he was in the shop) and was up in their space. From there by way of dispositions we go to Mercury in the 4th in Sagittarius (since Mercury is the planetary ruler of Virgo), which will then dispose of itself back to Jupiter in Virgo in the mutual reception mentioned in the Victim’s section.
**With Jupiter being opposite the Descendant, I’m thinking that we’re dealing with someone much more deliberate than he appeared to them normally – he may have appeared more harmless, maybe a little spacey normally (perhaps like he wasn’t always “on Earth”). I actually think this perp is someone who was probably college aged at the time, and maybe it’s Jupiter’s influence, but I’m thinking they may have attended a religiously affiliated university. Here in Austin, St. Edwards University and Concordia University come to mind, though with Pisces ruling over the Descendant we might be dealing with someone who actually went to school somewhere else – there could be a foreign element at play here, too, or they could’ve just been a transplant to Austin. The foreign element could make them an actual foreigner as well. With Jupiter in Virgo, it makes me think of someone pretty tall and lanky. Jupiter tends to indicate something “big” about the person, but here this feels more height related than anything else.
Even though I would give Jupiter more weight as the main Descendant ruler in this case, I still want to look at Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces. Neptune falls in the 5th House in Capricorn. Perhaps it is common sense (it does seem like to corral 4 girls you would need to have at least two people involved in the crime), but it’s also the dual nature of Pisces that makes me think two perpetrators (this isn’t universal with a Pisces Descendant, but fuck, I feel it here). I feel like Jupiter is representative of one perp, and Neptune is representative of the other. The second perp – I have to wonder if this person had some kind of addiction issue. Pisces ruling the Descendant definitely plays into this train of thought, for sure, but so does Neptune falling in the 5th House (the 5th House is, like, the pleasure house, among other things). It’s in Capricorn, which almost makes me think of someone who represses some kind of addictive urge until they just can’t anymore. This could be an addiction to anything, though with the ruler of the 7th in the 5th House, and rape being a hallmark of this disposition (and there was evidence that one of the girls had been raped), I’m almost wondering if this Neptune in Capricorn person was a serial rapist (or at the very least, this wasn’t their first rodeo with rape), or some other kind of sexual deviant. Supposedly the police found the motive to be “robbery,” but I’m gunna go on out here on a limb and say I think the motive of this crime was really for the person signified by Neptune in Capricorn to “have a good time” (though I don’t think this was necessarily the motive of the Jupiter in Virgo person). Next in line with the dispositions is Saturn in Aquarius (since Saturn is the planetary ruler of Capricorn), also in the 5th House, which kind of reinforces that this person wanted to have a good time and have a weird kind of control over the girls (or that is how it feels to me here). From here you would go to Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius, which also falls in the 5th House in Capricorn. This is where this chain of dispositions stops since it would bounce back to Saturn in Aquarius, being part of the mutual reception between both planets. -I have the feeling that the actual brains behind this whole thing was probably the person represented by Neptune in Capricorn. I actually don’t think the Jupiter in Virgo person knew exactly what the plan was when they surprise attacked the girls (maybe this person just thought it would be a robbery) – but the Neptune in Capricorn person had other plans…and the Jupiter in Virgo person didn’t resist them. The Jupiter person just feels more out of the loop to me, and I don’t think they were really in any control – though I do think they were absolutely how the Neptune in Capricorn person got their foot in the door.
The 5th House has even more importance here than just being where one of the rulers of the descendant falls – in crime charts when you’re dealing with victims who are underage (I tend to look at victims under 16 as being part of this house), you want to look at the 5th House and its rulership since the 5th House tends to also represent children. The 5th House has Capricorn on the cusp, which makes its planetary ruler Saturn in Aquarius. This makes me feel like the girls felt powerless to what was going on around them. Saturn in Aquarius would then dispose of itself to Uranus in Capricorn (where they would go back and forth in a mutual reception in the 5th House). You could technically stop with Saturn in Aquarius (since Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius), but I like to look at BOTH traditional and modern rulership.
**This part is pure visualization, but as I was typing all of this up, I envision someone banging on the shop door/windows after they’d closed up shop for the night. This person was known to at least one of girls that worked there and seemed frantic yelling through the glass that they thought they forgot something in the store (earlier that same day/night or even a day or two earlier). Since Mercury Rx feels so important to the overall tone of the chart, beyond just representing the victims, I have to wonder if they were yelling about forgetting a pager in the store or something like that (it was 1991 after all and I’m thinking that something communication related may have been involved), or even a driver’s license (since Mercury deals with cars and transportation). Other things that seem likely are something Jupiter related – maybe a textbook or something along those lines, or even something like a passport. Whether this item correlates more with the Mercury or Jupiter (or even both) doesn’t really matter. I do think something along these lines transpired. I also think that the girls had been doing their nightly closing routine of taking out the trash and all that shit, and probably left the back door unlocked as they were doing this. If something like this happened, it would’ve given the other perp the opportunity to sneak in the back door and hide in the back of the store. After the perp got inside that claimed to have forgotten something, he probably pulled a weapon on the girls, and they really weren’t expecting this. Some of them probably tried running to the door at the back of the shop, where they were surprised by the second perp lying in wait who was then able to corner them further. **
The I.C/4th House @ 5 Sagittarius 54 & The Moon
The 4th House ruler and the 4th House in general is also something you want to look at in these charts. The Moon is another planet that you always want to look at in charts like these, for it operates as co-ruler. In this chart, the Moon is in Sagittarius in the 4th House loosely conjunct Mercury (and by proxy, the Sun). Something like the Moon falling in the 4th House backs up the notion that the girls were in familiar surroundings and comfortable at the Yogurt Shop. The Moon, even though it isn’t tightly conjunct the Sun, would still be considered “under the sun’s beams” (any planet within 17-degrees of the Sun is considered as such), which also backs up the idea that the girls were in much more danger than they realized. Since we’re talking about the 4th House, and we have the Moon and the ruler of the 12th House (the Sun) there, this can show the start of a death pattern (since the 4th House is very much “cradle to the grave” energy).
Another thing to notice about this house is the fact that Mars is damn near dead-ass conjunct the IC, and Mars is also the ruler of the 8th House (which can also point to a death pattern, with the ruler of the 8th House in the 4th House). Mars can be incredibly violent and aggressive, which definitely fits here by the way that these girls were murdered. This could definitely show something like fire being used somewhere in the crime, though while the crime feels a little more planned out overall, the fire part almost seems like it was done on the fly.
The 10th House @ 5 Gemini 54
The 10th House can represent a few different things in a chart like this. It can represent the way that the public reacts to the case. It can also represent law enforcements handling of the case. The planetary ruler of this house is Mercury Rx in the 4th House in Sagittarius. First, this shows that the girls were in a public place (10th House ruler in the 4th can show this, and they were in a public place – this is reinforced further since Mercury Rx is also the chart ruler representing the girls). Beyond that, though, you’re looking at a case that would make the public very curious (which it did and still does). Scattered and lack of good communication would also be great ways to describe this case (and the handling of it). The Austin Police Department, as far as I’m concerned, were far too dogmatic in a very backwards way (per that Mercury Rx in Sagittarius) about who was to blame for this all of this. They were too inflexible about looking about other leads, getting too fucking hung up on the noise surrounding the case and trying to make what the officers thought happened fit the case at hand.
Here’s my advice to APD….if y’all happen to read this, go back to the original case files and look at the crime as if it just happened. I know that’s hard to do after 30 years, and really, I’d pull some new blood into this – new eyes that don’t have any bias regarding the case. I would bet a little money THEY HAVE ONE OF THE PERPETRATORS NAMES IN THE FUCKING CASE FILE. This may not have ever been an actual person of interest, but I would imagine that names of patrons who went to the Yogurt Shop in the days/weeks/months/etc. leading up to this event were taken down – THEY NEED TO GO THROUGH THESE FUCKING NAMES. I also think they need to probably have a lead detective on this case that’s pretty intuitive/leads by intuition (will kind of roll with hunches they have and see where they lead while not becoming to set on any one hunch). Mercury Rx needs to learn to trust it’s intuition, so it would make sense that this case would be served well by someone who does trust their intuition (not making arrests and bullshit based on intuition only but is comfortable with exploring intuitive hunches). THIS WHOLE CASE NEEDS TO BE WORKED FROM THE VERY BEGINNING ALL OVER AGAIN. Crime scene photos also need to be poured over in massive detail. I really think APD has exactly what they need to nail the correct person/people to wall for this crime (assuming this person/these people are still alive – a lot can happen in 30 years’ time). The details of this case got super fucked by too much of what feels like mental dogmatism in all the wrong areas and towards all the wrong leads (per Mercury Rx in Sagittarius). They have all the details they need to solve this mother fucker. They just need to do it.
-As I’ve mentioned before, I really think they are looking at two perpetrators for this case, though only one might be in the case files. This part is more intuitive than anything, but I also think it’s very possible that there is an age difference between these two perpetrators. Exactly how much of a difference, I’m not sure, but maybe something like one of them having been college age in 1991 with the other being 10 or so years older. -I also want to mention the possibility that one of the perps knew one of the victims’ families in a by proxy kind of way. Kind of like the perp knew one of the families of the girls but didn’t know them well (like a friend of a friend kind of thing). I make that mention because of the mutual reception between Mercury and Jupiter being in the 1st and 4th Houses. It at least seems like a possibility that should be explored if it hasn’t already. -It would even include the possibility that one of the perps was an employee or a previous employee of another business in that same strip mall (or in the area close by). Perhaps because one of the rulers of the Descendant falls in the first house – it seems like one of the perps may have been very comfortable in the Yogurt Shop himself, and very comfortable with the area. They may have even lived in the area at the time this happened.
I don’t normally mess with fixed stars in regular natal chart readings unless requested, but there were a few that really stood out in this event chart that I wanted to mention: —Ras Algethi is at 14 Sagittarius 45, which happens to be conjunct the Sun in the event chart. This can indicate some kind of nefarious plan carried out (and this fixed star is a reason that I do think there was some pre-meditation to at least some of this crime). —Manubrium is at 13 Capricorn 36 which happens to be conjunct Uranus within a degree and within a couple of degrees of Neptune (both which have to do with the perp’s side of things). This fixed star can indicate fire, arson, or the burning of a body being involved. –Sinistra is at 28 Sagittarius 21, which happens to be within 2-degrees of the Moon. This fixed star can indicate lust and sexual aggression. –Sabik is at 16 Sagittarius 34, which is conjunct Mercury by a degree and the Sun by a couple of degrees. This fixed star is like the pervert of the bunch. One of these perps was a massive fucking pervert (and people like this should absolutely be on APD’s radar). Anyone in the case file who before this crime or has since this crime had any kind of run in/arrest for being a fucking pervert, child-molester, rapist, etc. should most definitely be explored as a possible suspect. –Vega is at 15 Capricorn 19, and this one is really interesting because it happens to be EXACTLY Neptune, one of the planetary rulers of the Descendant. This might explain how they got so fucking lucky by getting away with this for so long – there is definitely a luckiness to this fixed star. That doesn’t mean that they can’t be caught, though.

So I haven’t been as active on here lately, but that is because I have been very busy! On top of all the client work I’ve had the past few months (which, by the way, I am so grateful to all of y’all that have hired me), myself and probably one of the dearest friends I’ve ever had, Natalie Mithqal, decided to create something. And without further ado, here are the Star Cards.
These little beauties can be used to help you learn how to read your own (or anyone’s chart)! They are 45 cards and an over 100 page notebook for study (and you can actually take notes in the damn thing!). Here is a layout of all of the cards (in the proof version) if you want to get a better idea of what is included in full.
There are 12 Sign cards, 10 Planet cards, 12 House cards, 6 Aspect cards, and 5 “Miscellaneous” cards (the North Node, the South Node, Chiron, Black Moon Lilith, and the Sun/Moon Midpoint). The backs have the glyphs for each thing talked about on the front.
I am pretty visual person, so having the sign, planet, and house cards all next to one another laid out helps to create the synthesis visually between the different parts of the chart. Start easy first (with just a planet in a house, or just a planet in a sign), and then moving on to more complicated synthesis – such as a planet/house/sign combo. Then moving on to throwing in aspects between the different planet/house/sign combos in your chart. These are just really, really cool. And they FEEL really nice, too! These are very much the kinds of learning tools that both Natalie and myself wish had been around when we started learning this astro language many years ago. And NOW they EXIST!
That’s just the introduction video to the Star Cards. If you want to see more videos about them, lol, I have them on IG @saturnseasonastrology and @letsfuckwithastrology (Let’s Fuck with Astrology is the joint venture between Natalie and myself). We also have a YouTube channel to check out & subscribe if you want 😊🙃 here is the link:

Yesterday I brought up the idea of Out of Bounds planets on the subreddit during the “Guess the Asshole” game. The following is posted to the subreddit, but I figured I would also post it here on the blog for those of you that don’t do the reddit thing (and there is probably some overlap from my previous OOB posts from about a year and a half ago). The definition for Out of Bounds planets is:
“A planet that exceeds a declination of 23-degrees 27 minutes either North or South of the equator.”
Also, just for definitions sake, Declinations are the movements of the planets North and South of the celestial equator. They can create major aspects called **parallels** and **contra-parallels.** Parallels operate like conjunctions and contra-parallels operate like oppositions. This is another discussion for another post entirely, lol, but I did figure it should be mentioned.)
Once a planet is Out of Bounds it is kind of free do to as it pleases. It’s no longer under the dominion of the Sun meaning that it can behave however it sees fit to behave. The planets that have the ability to go OOB are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter (which does so rarely), Uranus, and Pluto. The Sun, Saturn and Neptune don’t go OOB, and this is because they have the a very similar declination to the Sun. The Moon is the planet that goes OOB the most often, and the years that the North Node is closest to 0-degrees Aries are the years that you will see the Moon go OOB A LOT. In these years you will also see an upswing in OOB action across all the planets that can go OOB.
So….what happens when a planet goes OOB? That planet usually has a way of testing the limits. What limits exactly? It usually has to do with limits that we collectively place on one another in society (what’s “acceptable” and what’s “not acceptable” kind of shit). These are planets that push boundaries and want to push through any “barrier” that seems to exist. These planets don’t give a fuck about shit like that, giving rules and the status quo a giant middle finger. This can be a really great thing; we do need planets like this and the people that have them to move society forward…..they are usually the change makers in some capacity either in their own sphere of influence (in a micro way) or in collective ways on a larger scale (in a macro way). What happens TO a planet when it goes OOB? Below you will find a list of both the positive and negative sides to the planets being OOB. People that have OOB planets may find that they don’t exhibit ONLY the positive or the negative sides to the planet, but they may instead find they encompass a little of both.
**Moon OOB:**This usually adds an amplification of intuition to the way the Moon functions and the native usually knows this (and would be smart to use this intuition). The emotions are pretty strong and intense regardless of sign and regardless if the native shows them openly or not. It causes the native to dance to beat of their own drum (to the music running through their head that other people aren’t hearing). These people generally need a lot of emotional freedom and have a high degree of emotional intelligence. It helps the native to have a natural understanding of other people and they are usually like a spark of inspiration (both to themselves and to other people). On the negative side of things, you could find the Moon OOB causes the native to have extreme mood swings, a complete disregard for rules and social conventions (to the point of being to their detriment), and a complete lack of sympathy/empathy (though I don’t see it manifest this particular way often, it is possible). These people might also have habits that are self-destructive in nature (and this is the particular negative trait that I have noticed people that exemplify the positive traits of an OOB Moon overall might still have to battle with).
**Mercury OOB:** This can cause the native to be willing to communicate the things that other people wouldn’t dare communicate (to say the unspeakable). They are usually pretty intelligent and their mind operates in a different way than the rest of us. There is usually a talent for connecting people via communication and even media, and they usually make pretty great teachers and speakers. Perception is very important for these natives, and how they perceive the information that they are taking into their mind; if they function from the positive side of an OOB Mercury their perception is usually on point. On the negative end of the spectrum, the perception that these people have can be wildly off (they might misunderstand what is going on around them entirely). It can also cause obsessive and/or compulsive thoughts, and can cause the way that they think differently to be SO different that they end up not feeling socially connected to anyone and/or to disconnect entirely.
**Venus OOB:** This planet being OOB can make the native highly desirable in their own sphere of influence on a micro level and publicly on a macro level. They generally have really great taste and know “beauty” (even if it’s different than what the collective at large finds “beautiful”). Because of this these natives are generally ahead of trends and challenge (and change) the collective’s notion of what “beauty” is. They usually have a knack for making other people feel very at ease in their presence, and for being able to give other people what they need in any given situation. Venus OOB usually adds oodles of magnetism and charisma; these people have “IT” (or “zsa-zsa-zou”) and they are usually pretty entertaining with a fair amount of artistic ability. Values are another thing that stand out here; these people might value things in a different way than most, or their values in general might be different. On the negative side, Venus OOB can cause someone to be too hedonistic, materialistic, and envious of what other people have (not focusing on what THEY have). There can be something “unusual” about their notion of relationships and they somehow need to break boundaries on what is accepted in relationships and what isn’t (this one can be a positive or negative, it really depends on WHAT that is and how they use it).
**Mars OOB:** This can cause the native to be super fucking driven; these are the people that really have an ability to get shit done. Their stamina is usually unparalleled and they have a tremendous amount of leadership ability. They usually feel an urge to act on their instincts and impulses (and THIS can be positive or negative, depending on what those instincts and impulses are telling them to do). They might seem more “masculine” in nature and they usually have a good amount of confidence that they want to act on and exhibit. On the negative end of things, this can cause the person to come off as incredibly selfish, forceful, and/or dominating. Their temper can be an issue; Mars OOB can cause the person to get really fucking pissed off really fucking quick (sometimes this seems nonsensical in nature) with possibly violent results.
**Jupiter OOB:** When Jupiter is OOB it usually adds an amplification of luck for the native in their life. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the ones that win the lottery or anything like that, but these people might seem luckier in general (they might even FEEL luckier than a lot of people). Their beliefs are usually very strong, and it might even cause them to have a belief in the impossible (not easily giving up on this). There might be a deep need to travel and see the world in a way that goes WAY beyond Jupiters need to travel (like they need travel like the air they breathe). These people have a need to expand themselves beyond any limits that currently exist and this is usually done in a BIG way. Expansion is one of those things that can really be a positive or a negative thing – it really depends HOW they are expanding and in what area they are trying to expand. Dogmatism is another negative trait of Jupiter OOB (but this is to an extreme level).
**Uranus OOB:**These people, like the Moon OOB, need a whole bunch of freedom. They don’t allow anyone or anything to fence them in. These are the people who are more than willing to try things that have never been tried before for the sake of innovation and experimentation. The rebels, the revolutionaries, the humanitarians, and the weirdos (and this may be seen publicly on a larger scale or within family and friend groups on a smaller scale – these people naturally stand out). There is usually a deep feeling of being different from other people that goes beyond the usual notion of Uranian difference, which they can either use to their advantage or their detriment. These people can completely detach themselves from everything if they want (which can be both a good thing or a bad thing depending on the circumstance). Their behavior can be downright shocking or radical just for the pure sake of these which can put others that are more conventional “off” and cause them not to be taken as seriously in their quest for liberation (both personally and collectively).
**Pluto OOB:** This planet being OOB can cause the native to have a shit load of intensity and/or magnetism (and this kind of intensity goes beyond Pluto’s normal intensity and magnetism levels). They are are passionate, usually pretty sexual (maybe even hyper-sexual), and usually have very strong convictions about things. Secrets usually mean a lot to these people, and they are more inclined than most to hang on to their secrets (and those of other people). These people usually go through several distinct periods in their lifetimes and these periods show their many marked soul transformations (and they could even go through a few different transformations during one period). This planet OOB can also cause a host of darker things to come out in the personality; these people might have a shit load of rage and can probably be incredibly violent and vengeful (though this might not be out in the open but more something these natives keep secret). I feel like there is a need for people with Pluto OOB to embrace the darkness and heaviness of Pluto…..not necessarily in the sense of acting on any “dark” desires but admitting they exist and handling them in a way that doesn’t hurt themselves or anyone else (should this exist in the native).
And just to be clear, even some of the positive traits mentioned above could be utilized in a negative capacity in some way. Same thing goes for the more negative traits, which if applied positively could be a positive thing. My point is not everything is black and white.
Now, I’ve read that it doesn’t matter WHAT sign the OOB planet falls in terms of if it functions positively or negatively. I actually disagree with this a little bit. I do feel like planetary dignity *CAN* play into this a little bit. For instance, someone with their Mars OOB in Cancer might have a tendency to use the OOB energy in a more challenging, difficult, or negative way since Mars is in Fall in Cancer. On the flip side of things, someone with Mars in Capricorn might be more inclined to use the OOB energy in a more positive way since Mars is exalted in Capricorn. While I don’t think this is universal AT ALL (there are probably plenty of people with Mars OOB in Cancer that use the energy positively), I do think looking at the the dignities of the OOB planet in question (along with the aspects the planet makes) could show a proclivity towards manifesting the energy in an easy or challenging way. This part is all just a working theory for me right now.
How can YOU find out if you have any planets out of bounds? Go to http://www.astro.com and create your chart (first go to “free horoscopes” at the top of the page and then go to extended chart selection and enter in your information). Once you pull the actual chart you will see a button above the chart that says “PDF additional tables.” Click on that and something called “Natal Chart (Data Sheet)” will appear. Under the chart that says “Planet Positions” you will see a column for “Declination.” Check the declinations for the planets and if you have a planet that is at a declination of 23-degrees 27 minutes or beyond you have an OOB planet. If you find you have an OOB planet think about HOW that planet manifests in an OOB way in your life. Share below how you feel the OOB planet plays out in your life (if you feel like sharing). I know I’d personally love to hear your experiences with them. As someone who has three OOB planets (Moon, Venus, and Uranus), I find all of this really interesting.
Me and one of my favorite people ever decided to create our own astrology subreddit. If you’re interested in checking it out (or joining), the subreddit is LetsFuckWithAstrology.
