Galactic Center Thoughts part XXI

Jupiter and its auroral emissions

This blog post is probably going to be kind of all over the fucking place (much like the last couple of videos that I’ve made about the Galactic Center – here are videos one and two from this week). Just like the videos, though, I wanted to go a head and get this out there (and at some other point in time I will streamline my thoughts together better…..once I have a better handle where exactly my thoughts are going). I may not be 100% sure where the fuck they’re going – but I do feel like they fit in somehow, someway.

This past week I started to go down a rabbit hole about planets and x-ray emissions. This kind of started because I got to thinking about the x-rays and radio waves (and other shit) that the GC has coming from it. I started to wonder about planets and their own x-ray emissions, especially since I do think that certain planets are MORE tied to the GC than others. For those new to the game here, those planets are:

*Jupiter – Obviously this planet would be involved with the GC since the GC is IN Sagittarius. I do think Jupiter Retrograde specifically takes the top spot.
*Any retrograde planet
*Any out of bounds planet
**Retrograde planets and OOB planets don’t automatically give one an “affinity” for the GC, but if the person has planetary contacts to the GC, the Galactic Anti-Center (GaC) or something like that, I think the retrograde and/or OOB planet strengthens this connection.
*Uranus feels like the planet that is the most tied to the GC after Jupiter. This has been a strong ass feeling I’ve had for a while now, especially since Retrograde planets tend to point towards Uranus as it is AND OOB planets have a wild-card Uranian kind of feeling, too. Also, Uranus is all about change (among other things) and the GC fundamentally changes anything that happens to enter its grasp.
*Neptune and Pluto definitely have a tie with the GC as well. To me, Pluto’s connection is much more clear since Pluto is all about transformation (among other things) – transformation is something else that the GC does to anything that happens to “fall” into it. Neptune, lol being Neptune, is a little less clear to me but I know that fucker ties in, too (especially since the GC is thought to be a telephone line to the creator or to other dimensions). It would make sense for a planet like Neptune to correlate here, since it is such a spiritual planet.
*Chiron does have ties as well. Chiron is like a bridge between the inner and the outer planets, and I definitely think of the GC as a bridge from what is “here” in our galaxy to what exists beyond us. Not only that though – Chiron’s whole mythology definitely seems to have ties to the GC, too.
*Saturn is one that I have recently brought into the game. In esoteric astrology, Saturn is thought of as the “gatekeeper” (which, lol, is incredibly apt when I think about it). In order to even GET to Chiron or the the outer planets, you have to push through Saturn’s ass first.

All planets have some kind of x-ray emissions. The only planet, so far, that they haven’t found any come from is Neptune (though I’d bet a little money in time they will find them coming from Neptune as well). There are three types of x-ray emissions that a planet can do:
-Auroral Emissions
-Fluorescence
-Scattering of solar x-rays from the Sun

The two planets that have auroral emissions (or that I can find that FOR SURE have auroral emissions) are Jupiter and Earth, though Jupiter being Jupiter, it does these auroral emissions bigger than the Earth does. Why is this interesting to me? Because if the GC is really like a “lifeline” or “telephone line” to the creator, to other dimensions, or even to the parts of ourselves that we leave “charging” when we incarnate here on Earth (essentially our “higher selves”), then I find it interesting that the only two planets that do these kinds of emissions are Jupiter (which is obviously tied to the GC via Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter) and Earth (which is the planet we are all planted on). Do you see where I’m going with this – like we are somehow more tied to Jupiter and the GC just by way of happening to be ON this planet.
-Another thing I will bring up is esoteric rulership in astrology. Side note: I don’t use esoteric astrology THAT MUCH in practice (though I do tend to read Saturn in a more esoteric way normally), so I had to dust off some books lol. Anywho, in esoteric astrology, Sagittarius’ exoteric ruler is Jupiter, but it’s esoteric ruler is the Earth. THIS is another interesting tie in (and also something that makes me think I’ll be needing to bring esoteric astrology into this GC thang way more than I originally thought).
-Jupiter also does the scattering of solar x-rays from the Sun, too.

Saturn is another planet that I wanted to look at. It, like Jupiter, does the scattering of solar x-rays from the Sun. Saturn’s rings also Fluoresce. I have also seen different articles that mention’s that Saturn might also do the auroral emissions as well, but the sources that I’ve found haven’t seemed as concrete as the one’s that deal with Jupiter (and obviously the Earth) being able to do this. It absolutely wouldn’t surprise me if Saturn does this, too, especially since Saturn is so tied to the physical, like Earth (though it wants us to break beyond that bondage). In esoteric astrology, Saturn is ruled by Saturn regardless of exoteric or esoteric rulership (which, lol, figures).

Uranus is another one that does emit x-rays (that was recently found out a few years back), though it seems like they haven’t quite figured out HOW this happens. I’m gunna bet a little money that they will find that it does all three of the above types. By way of esoteric astrology, Aquarius has it’s exoteric ruler as Uranus, but it’s esoteric ruler is Jupiter. In my mind, in a more concrete way, this ties together Jupiter and Uranus more directly than I have before (throughout much of this research I have felt that Jupiter and Uranus are strongly linked with the GC, and even with one another….I was just leaving the esoteric perspective out).

I haven’t yet found out if Chiron emits any kind of x-rays or not (though it probably does something). Pluto also does something, but because of it’s distance from the Sun they aren’t really sure HOW it would be scattering solar-rays from the Sun. I think the pictures aren’t good enough (or something, I’m honestly not really sure), so they can’t really tell HOW Pluto is able to emit x-rays as of now.

HOW does all of this ACTUALLY tie in with the GC? Not totally sure yet. But I know it probably fucking does.

Galactic Center Thoughts XVIII or: The Uranus Connection

**Here is the video that I made about this blog post, for anyone that is more of a watcher than a reader**

I have mentioned several times throughout all of the videos and blog posts that Jupiter Rx feels like it ties heavily into the Galactic Center. Obviously, the planet Jupiter will have an affinity for the GC since the GC is IN Sagittarius (and as long as the GC is in Sagittarius, this affinity will remain). The retrograde motion of Jupiter, which I have talked about several times, seems to tie to the GC even further – the notion of KNOWING something before knowing WHY one knows something just FEELS very GC-like to me (and getting the “downloads” et. al from the GC). Another planet that I have mentioned before that feels like it also has an affinity for the GC is Uranus. I don’t just pull this out of my ass, lol, I definitely have my reasons for feeling like this is true.
-Uranus is a catalyst for change. The GC most definitely changes any planets that conjunct it (or that even oppose it).
-Since the GC seems to have a tie to retrograde energy (there does seem to be an affinity between the two), an affinity to Uranus makes sense (all retrograde planets point to Uranus in one way or another)

This has been on my mind for a while, but I have wanted to take a look at all the people who have participated thus far in the research and see if Uranus figures prominently into the GC axis in some way, shape or form (not just looking at the conjunctions here). I realize that Uranus is generational and doesn’t move all that fast, so there are several people who were born in the mid ’80’s to early 90’s that DO have Uranus conjunct the GC (I am one of these people myself). I also wanted to take a look and see how many people in the research had Uranus Rx in their natal charts (regardless of if it tied to the GC axis or not). My mind is kind of thinking of Uranus in the same way that I think about Chiron connecting to the GC – having Chiron or Uranus involved with the GC Axis probably does amplify something about the GC energy. Having Chiron and/or Uranus Rx and connected to the GC probably amplifies the GC axis even more. For the people that have Uranus Rx elsewhere in their chart, like Chiron Rx people, they are probably able to tap into the energy of the GC more easily if they have GC conjunctions or oppositions.

So from there I decided to run some numbers from the charts collected thus far in the research:
-60% of people have Uranus either involved with the GC Axis in some way OR have Uranus Rx in their natal charts
-40% of people don’t have Uranus involved with the GC Axis in some way or don’t have Uranus Rx elsewhere in their charts.

Another reason that I am particularly hung up on Uranus as being an auxiliary or amplifier for the GC energy is that it is the first of the transpersonal planets – essentially what one would get to first if they were to cross over Chiron’s bridge to visit the outer planets. I also can’t help but make the connection between Chiron and Uranus since in Chiron’s myth, Chiron took the place of Prometheus who was chained to a rock (and Prometheus has an affinity FOR Uranus and Aquarian energy). Even beyond the GC stuff that has my mind fucking buzzing, these two celestial bodies have an linkage to one another via mythology. I definitely do think both are amplifiers to the GC’s energy. On their own they don’t necessarily tap someone into the GC, but if either/both happen to be retrograde and not involved with the GC Axis OR retrograde/direct and touching the GC axis, I think they probably DO amplify what actually happens for the person energy wise at the GC.

This got me curious about the actual discovery of the planet Uranus (I was wondering if there were any GC contacts at the time Uranus was discovered like the GC contacts that are in the chart for Chiron’s celestial discovery that put up in the blog post about Chiron and the GC). Sure the fuck enough, there is:

LOOK at FUCKING MARS conjunct the GC (with Saturn right there, too). Uranus is conjunct the Galactic Anti-Center at the time Uranus was discovered (Uranus is also Out of Bounds in this chart). This feels fitting since Uranus is “shocking” on it’s own, so being found in the area of the chart (the GaC) where “shocks” happen makes sense (and it’s like by this hypothetical “shock” happening, that area of the sky in the chart was illuminated and Uranus was able to be seen). Jupiter is fucking Retrograde in this chart (which feels like an amplifier for everything else). The Midheaven in Leo is trine the GC, but also fucking CHIRON happens to be in the 10-degree applying and separating window that is being looked at for trines to the GC (and being able to bring the GC shit down to Earth). It also strikes me that Chiron is conjunct the North Node, but I would have to sit with THAT longer to make sense of it. Maybe something like part of the mission from the discovery of Uranus (for the planet Uranus itself….if planets can HAVE missions) is to function alongside Chiron in some way.

The other outer planets DON’T have the GC contacts that Uranus does, and while I do think all the outer planet have an affinity for the GC energy, it doesn’t really surprise me that the discovery of Uranus is the only one of the outer planets to have GC contacts like this when it was discovered.

Galactic Center Thoughts Part III (or some shit)

The Galactic Center ^^^^^ FUCKING MAGNIFICENT
(photo credit – NASA)

I have talked about a WHOLE BUNCH OF DIFFERENT stuff regarding the Galactic Center recently on the YouTube channel for Lets Fuck with Astrology – the joint business venture between myself and the other creator of the Star Cards, Natalie (who is probably one the people who has been the dearest to me in my whole life), but the Galactic Center has captivated me for much longer than it might seem that it has. It’s the “mystery” about it that really gets me – and there is something REALLY mysterious about it (probably the fact that we aren’t really sure what is ON the other side of the GC). The GC is said to be a lifeline to other dimensions, a place to contact the other side, and as the Mayan’s liked to call it, “the source of all creation,” among a whole bunch of other shit. It is also thought of as a place where divine inspiration comes from and that the GC can feed one information like “downloads.” And yes, there are definitely some alien theories thrown into all of this (those are a lot of fun, but I think the alien thing is fun to think about, anyway). There is also the idea that it functions like a (hidden) luminary since the Sun actually orbits the GC (the GC is actually one of the reasons our galaxy functions the way that it does). Astrologers like Philip Sedgwick and Paul O. Hewitt have done a lot of work on the GC (more than it seems anyone else really has), but even after reading what work of theirs I can get my hands on, I am left with even more questions than answers. I don’t say this to impugn their work – it’s fantastic! I just think it’s the nature OF the Galactic Center, to beg more questions than it answers.

While I think anyone can access the GC (the GC is in EVERYONE’S chart – right now it’s at 27-degrees 3 minutes Sagittarius), I do think it’s probably BEST accessed by people who have planets conjunct the GC (or a major asteroid or something like that). When a planet is conjunct the GC, it seems like that planet might have the propensity to be given information FROM the GC (for that planet to get information “downloaded” to it) that then needs to be translated/transmuted into a language that we can understand here on Earth (in my last blog post I made mention on how it might be possible to bring the stuff from the GC down to Earth). Even as the planet is being changed, charged, and transformed by the conjunction with the GC, it does seem like divine insight, inspiration, and “downloads” could (and DO) come from the conjunction. I also think this same information can be accessed by people with the oppositions, but I do think the oppositions to the GC are harder for the person to see and feel. This has to do with the area of the sky that the Galactic Anti-Center is in – this is a much calmer part of the sky covered by a bunch of fucking space dust and what seems to be blinded by a very bright star. Applying this science to the idea behind the GaC and the GC, I do feel like the oppositions also get the downloads, but perhaps don’t know what the hell these downloads are (due to the covering and the brightness). I do think these planets get the feelings of these downloads, though (or that’s kind of where my mind is right now). Though I do wonder, if the person has a planet in opposition to the GC (conjunct the GaC), without having a planet conjunct the GC ….. I do think the translation isn’t as clear. Exactly HOW that manifests? Not totally sure about that yet. I do think the opposition will try to make logical and rational sense of what information it is given (the GaC is in Gemini), but the ideas that comes through from the GC aren’t always rational or logical (oftentimes I think they probably aren’t). It seems like just having a planet opposite the GC would cause one to get the information STUCK – so while they receive these “downloads” it feels like they could get, well, stuck or frustrated.
**Unless, perhaps, if a person with only planets opposite the GC/conjunct the GaC have Mercury Rx in their natal chart, and they are actually functioning from the retrograde motion of Mercury (not trying to operate from the direct motion). THIS would probably change things.

This brings me to the next thought about the GC and it’s seeming correlation with retrograde planets. Let me break this one down for you:
-I have mentioned this before in the videos and in writing that the GC feels VERY Uranian (I know I’m not alone in feeling this – there have been other people who have echoed the same sentiment in writing). It’s the electric feeling charge of the GC, the weirdness, and the inevitable change that the GC seems to cause (anything that gets “sucked” into in space WILL be changed). There is also something very Plutonian about the GC too – the transformation element.
-Retrograde planets have a correlation with Uranian energy since ALL retrograde planets POINT towards Uranus/Uranian energy (some of them also point to other planets, too, but there is a pointing towards Uranus with all of them). The reason for this is the “difference” in the way that retrograde planets need to function (and “different” is obviously Uranus territory). I also feel like retrograde planets point towards Pluto, too. So, in that case, retrograde planets point towards two planets that kind of embody the energy of the GC.
-Retrograde planetary motion will turn things inward (making them very personal) while direct motion turns things outwards. So, for instance, Mars retrograde will turn it’s drive inward and will only feel called to take action on things that serve the soul purpose of the person with Mars Rx. Mars direct turns drive and other Martian expressions outward (the things that Mars direct feels driven to do don’t necessarily have to serve the soul purpose).
-It does feel like people who have planets conjunct or opposite the GC, and also have planets retrograde in their chart (regardless of if these planets are conjunct or opposite the GC, or just somewhere in their chart) have better access to the GC energy. People who just have planets conjunct or opposite the GC with little to no retrograde planets in their chart ALSO have easy access to the GC – but I do think Rx planetary motion in the chart somewhere amplifies/electrifies this access. Retrograde planets conjunct or opposite the GC, or with retrograde planets , seem like any combination of the above would cause the person to be on fire with GC energy and be able to actually do something WITH the GC energy.
-Even people who don’t have anything conjunct or opposite the GC, but say, have 3 or more planets retrograde in their chart, probably are more aligned with the energy of the GC. Though without the conjunctions or oppositions to the GC, they may not really know what to do about this alignment with the GC (or even be aware of how much it exists in the first place).

All of this talk about Retrogrades brings me to what I think is probably the most important Rx planet of the bunch to have in the chart to access the GC energy – and that’s Jupiter Rx. Why might this be (or where does this train of thought come from)? Lets talk a little bit about the nature of Jupiter Rx generally in the natal chart:
-Jupiter Rx UNDERSTANDS things in a big picture way, in an intuitive way, before it logically and rationally understands WHY it understands what it understands, why it knows what it knows. THIS sounds incredibly GC to me as is it – understanding things (anything) from an intuitive place first, kind of along the same lines of the GC giving someone an “information download” and then the person needs to “translate” or “transmute” this information in a way that actually makes sense in real life.
-Jupiter Rx needs to work from backwards motion to figure out why it knows what it knows to be true. This means when someone has Jupiter Rx in their natal chart, they already have a good handle on the big picture from an intuitive place – they already “know things”. What they HAVE to do is break that shit down backwards, piece by piece, to make logical and rational sense of what it is they already know.
-Jupiter Rx is the only planet that points towards an inner planet – it points towards Mercury (while also pointing towards Uranus and even Pluto). I didn’t really know a better way to word this, lol, but most of the other planets point towards just Uranus or Pluto. The only exception here is Mercury Rx, which points towards Jupiter (along with Uranus and Pluto). Either way, Jupiter Rx is the ONLY planet that points to one of the most inner planets in our solar system.
-Quite literally, Jupiter Rx needs to bring what it already knows and intuits “down to Earth,” down to a logical and rational place, to make sense of it. This is very much HOW the GC itself seems to function.

There does seem to be correlations between having Jupiter Rx in the natal chart and being able to access the GC (even if Jupiter doesn’t make an aspect/contact with the GC). I also think Jupiter Rx people, even if they don’t have a conjunction or opposition with the GC, have an amplified affinity to the GC and it’s energy. I do think that if the Jupiter Rx person HAS a planetary conjunction or opposition to the GC (Jupiter Rx or another planet/other planets), this AMPLIFIES the affinity for the GC even further. Still though, the nature of both the GC and Jupiter Rx is to translate things down to planet Earth, so I think all of this is done in a much more fluid way (fluid doesn’t mean easy in this case, lol) when the person ALSO has a trine to the GC….the trine allowing the translation of information to make sense on planet Earth (the trine aspect is kind of where my mind is in how to bring this down to Earth….or one of the ways).
-As is the nature with Rx planets in the natal chart, if the person with Jupiter Rx is trying to function from the direct motion of Jupiter, the translation of stuff from the GC seems like it would be exponentially harder. When one has Jupiter Rx in the natal chart, but tries to function from direct motion, this tends to manifest as someone who just knows what they know, who understands what they understand, but they never try to make any damn sense of this in the real world. This can cause the person to not feel as intelligent as other people or like they don’t have as much to contribute to conversations with other people (because they don’t try to make sense of what they do know so they feel like they don’t make as much sense to other people). It can also manifest as someone who is so scattered with what their ideas of personal truth are (taking in too much from other people in this way) – and getting their own beliefs and truth fucked up & confused with that of other people.

Even though I do feel that Jupiter Rx is the most important planet to have retrograde in the chart to access the GC energy, all of the retrograde planets seem important in their own way. One planet that also feels really important, though also feels like it could be incredibly difficult to have Rx in the chart if the person was trying to work from the direct motion of the planet in regards to the GC, is Mercury Rx. Mercury Rx is the only other planet that points towards a planet that isn’t a transpersonal planet since it also points to Jupiter. Mercury takes in information and Jupiter assimilates and understands that information. When Mercury is Rx, the person takes in a bunch of information (much of which functions like noise), and the person needs to be taking each piece of information piece by piece in order to see the big picture (Jupiter). As they take the information they are taking in step by step, piece by piece, they are able to better tune out all the “noise” so that they can see that big picture. These people also need to be trusting their intuition about what information actually matters to them (and their soul purpose) in the first place. When Mercury Rx people are functioning FROM the retrograde motion, they can be very in-tune with the GC energy. When they aren’t functioning from the retrograde motion, and trying to function from direct motion, it seems that they would be too scattered (and in too much of a state of information overload) that being able to see the big picture and trust their intuition would be incredibly difficult. Intuition and the Big Picture are Galactic Center notions (among other things).
**Just as I think when Mercury Rx people are functioning from the Rx planetary motion they can be very in-line with the GC, I think Jupiter Rx people, when functioning from the Rx motion of Jupiter, are able to also be very in-tune with the Galactic Anti-Center. Mercury Rx people, on the other hand, might be more aligned with the GaC naturally, while Jupiter Rx people feel more aligned with the GC.

All of these ideas have come from the research that has been conducted thus far on the subreddit letsfuckwithastrology through the GC questionnaire (and if you wanna be a part of the research reach out and let me know – I’ll email you the survey!). These ideas have also come from looking at the charts of well known “whistleblowers” or truth-tellers – and there does seem to be an undeniable affinity with the GC and people that are known for truth telling and whistleblowing. I will go over this in the next article more (the connection with whistleblowers and the GC). While the GC definitely seems to deal with getting information “downloads,” with divine inspiration and insight, and probably functions as some kind of telephone line to the source of all creation, it also deals quite a bit with searching for truth and needing to make that truth known. Probably KNOWING what the truth is about different situations, but having to translate this truth into a way that’s understandable here on Earth. Sagittarius is the truth seeker, and since this is where the GC falls, it does make sense. A “weird” relationship with the truth seems just as possible – perhaps you might also find people that have a compulsive need to tell the truth (even when they don’t want to), people that have a strange way of defining what truth is (and what truth needs to be told), and even people who already know WHAT the truth is about any given situation but would rather keep their head in the sand and not be able to translate it. Any of those also seem possible, too. I’m still playing with ideas, lol. It would also depend heavily WHAT the chart looks like as to how the GC might function in an individuals chart.

***Another kind of planetary energy that also feels like it could be very in-tune with the GC are the Out of Bounds (OOB) planets. I have an article here about what OOB planets are and how they function (and how to find out if you have any in your chart). Out of Bounds planets, since their orbit is no longer under the domain of the Sun, ALSO feel rather Uranian in nature (and as I mentioned earlier, the GC is very Uranian, too). More research will need to be done in this particular area to see how much this actually fits.

The US and Pluto’s Return

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 War took 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.

The Fundamentals of Reading a Natal Chart Part II

I want to start Part II of this series off by making it very clear that you are so much more than your Sun Sign or your “Big Three” (The Sun/Moon/Rising). If you went off of the basic or trendy instagram/facebook/etc post about astrology, you might be inclined to to think that you’re Sun Sign is literally the only thing that matters, or that your “Big Three” compose the sum of your astrological parts. Personally I take real issue with this sort of astrology that is passed around the internet like some incurable clusterfuck of infectious diseases. Infection is a good word for it, really. I get the some of the memes and posts are funny (though some are downright stupid and only used as a source for starting some shit), but the infection happens when people take silly memes and posts to heart, using them as learning tools, because they don’t yet know anything else. So they believe that they’re toxic because they’re a Pisces Sun. They believe that they’re “boring” because they are a Virgo Sun, or that they are equal to “The Devil” because they’re a Gemini Sun. Obviously, universally, people don’t believe this popsicle bullshit, but for people who are just dipping their feet into astrology and starting out, and then seeing some nonsense like they are the devil because they are a certain Sun Sign, it can be be discouraging. And it’s just fucking incorrect. I don’t hold the learners accountable here, but those who know better and still push this sort of astrology. It drives me up the fucking wall.
……In essence, don’t take to heart any sort of bunk ass astrology that focuses on only your Sun Sign, or your “Big Three.” And honestly this goes for the entire chart.

Like, what the actual fuck?!?! Like, this is taken out of context completely…..and posted to social media.
And while we’re at it, let’s knock of posts like this, too. Just because you knew ONE toxic Leo doesn’t mean ALL Leo’s are toxic.

It’s not a matter of not being able to take a joke. I realize that a lot of these posts and things are meant to be jokes. Or were created because the creator was burned by a couple of signs in the past and they want to make it known out loud how much they think those signs sucks. The issue that I have with all of this is when this infection sort of unconsciously seeps into people’s minds, and they start forming incorrect schemas about the different signs and their energy. Or they believe that because ONE Leo was toxic in their life, they then believe something like the post above to be true. For people who don’t want to really learn astrology, that’s fine (we all want to learn different things), but for the people that actually want to learn it, these sorts of infections passed around the internet don’t help this process. They also don’t help astrology to be taken very seriously in general.
….Sorry, rant over. I just want to make it really clear that you aren’t totally fucked or totally “blessed” or whatever because of your Sun sign, your “Big Three,” or any individual thing in your chart.

On the subject of all of this, I wanted to go into just a little bit about what the different Planetary energy represents in your chart (what energy is needing to be expressed).
*The Sun (Rules over Leo): This represents your life force and your ego. It needs to express those plus your vitality, your self-expression, and where/how you need to really shine. It can be arrogant.
*The Moon (Rules over Cancer): This represents your emotional core. It needs to express your emotions, mothering/nurturing, protection, It can be moody and withdrawn.
*Mercury (Rules over Gemini and Virgo): This planet represents your mind. It needs to express communication, change, dexterity, learning, thinking, agility, and its perception of things. It can be nervous, nosy, and is considered youthful.
*Venus (Rules over Taurus and Libra): This planet represents the concepts of love and value. It needs to express itself by giving/receiving love the way that you need to, through your sense of value, affection, diplomacy, compromise and beauty. It can also be self-indulgent, indecisive, and hedonistic.
*Mars (Rules over Aries): This planet represents one’s drive. It needs to express itself through direct energy, sexuality, action, courage, strength, and competition. It can also be impulsive, aggressive and angry.
*Jupiter (Rules over Sagittarius): This planet represents one’s beliefs. It needs to express itself through expansion, optimism, experiences, knowledge and wisdom, and the higher/abstract mind. It can also be over confident, dogmatic (about beliefs), and wasteful.
*Saturn (Rules over Capricorn): This planet represents one’s responsibility. It needs to express itself through authority, mastery, patience, structure, and is thought to represent “Father Time” and old age. It can be limiting, cynical, and overly reserved.
*Uranus (Rules over Aquarius): This planet represents your liberation (it’s the higher octave of Mercury). It needs to express this liberation plus freedom, detachment, revolution, and any quirks you have. It needs to point towards the future, quickness, and experimentation. It can exhibit shocking change and erratic behavior as well.
*Neptune (Rules over Pisces): This planet represents universal love (being the higher octave of Venus). It needs to express itself through spirituality, creativity, dreams, and through the collective unconscious. It can also be clouding, deceiving, and lack boundaries.
*Pluto (Rules over Scorpio): This planet represents power (being the higher octave of Mars). It needs to express itself through magnetism, desire, taboos, transformation, and letting things go. It can also be destructive, obsessive, compulsive, and resentful.
……As you can see from just this above, we are definitely composed of more than just our Sun Signs, or our Sun/Moon/Ascendant.

Something I wan’t to point out here about the planets and their “keywords” is that just because some of the keywords have a more “negative” connotation attached, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you will exhibit all of those in your own chart/in your own life. It also doesn’t mean that those negative keywords will end up being negative things in your own life. Take Uranus for example: Uranus can be quirky and electric and revolutionary, and it can use these traits for the “good” or the “bad.”

Another thing I want to mention here (briefly, as not to overwhelm anyone) are retrograde planets in the natal chart. Retrograde planets turn the energy of that planet inward in the most basic terms possible. So you can take all of the planets mentioned above, and turn that energy inward instead of outward (inward on a soul level).
