Hello It's Astrology Time! readers.  I am back after a busy week and change in schedule.  I just realized how important this blog is to me and hopefully you too.  The deleted entry threw me off to a point where I had  numerous drafts of things I wanted cram in but didn't flesh out.  Anywho.  I have decided to commit to a more regular schedule of updating this blog on a weekly basis.  From now you can expect updates on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  That is my pledge to you which I hope to keep!


This week is about solid ideas and how to make them happen.  We have Mars(action), Venus(values, possessions), and Mercury (communications) all in solid earth.  These are the tools which will help you build your dream/idea that I mentioned in the last post.  This past Saturday the Sun moved into the sign of Gemini. Gemini, think of the time of Gemini as your twin who grew up with you and knows all about you and has agreed, questioned, or informed you during all of your decisions.  That is Gemini in a nutshell.  Astrologically Gemini is Mutable(changeable) Air(movement, intent with no visible form) and is associated with twins.  The glyph,    represents the dual nature of man, not so much  masculine feminine duality, but more reflected image in a mirror.  The other analogy I have in mind, is take the first time you looked at yourself in the mirror and moved your right arm, yet in the mirror the left arm are was the one moving.  After you stared so intently it took you a little while to understand that everything is moving in the opposite way from your point of view, yet still its essentially the same movement.  So whats the point in looking at mirror if it essentially still the same image? The perspective and different angle helps to illuminate the image in a seemingly objective view as if you were another person looking at yourself.  From this a person will have a glimpse of how the world could see them.  This helps sometimes and other times can get confusing if you have too much going on in the mirror to focus on(like trying to learn dance moves from a teacher's reflection in a mirror).  That! Is the energy of Gemini.  The other important traits of this sign(not exclusively those born under its Sun) is gathering information, debating issues from different sides, accumulating knowledge, teaching, new technology, being of fickle mind, trickery(God of Thieves, Mercury rules this Sign), young children, the lungs, locomotion of the body, various degree of functional or nonfunctional mental states,  and short travel distances.  Today the Sun is sextile Uranus(sudden movement, higher communications) which is a good aspect for gaining new information or getting important messages.  From our perspective on Earth, it is the Sun visiting the eccentric harbinger of information Uranus.  You probably received interesting info that you are trying hard to process.  Do try put the effort in disseminating the message, he's got something for you. Plus Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, so you may not get how the message got to you, but that’s okay, Uranus works that way.

Speaking of Gemini and the eternal child, heiress Huguette Clark died yesterday, at the age of 104.  Her assets are reported to be over $100 million dollars.  Her history is she is the last remaining child of Senator Clarke(known white collar crook who stole millions while in his US Senate seat) from a century ago. She has a lot of Gemini in her chart! Her Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto are all in Gemini.  She was a person very much in her head, her whole world was her ideas.  She was an extremely reclusive individual who got through the day by being alone with her extensive doll collection and watching the Flintstones cartoons everyday.  I think she might have has some traumatic experience or some developmental disorder, perhaps even aspergers.  I don't know her exact birth time so I don't know the houses(areas of life) in her chart, but with Venus(values) Neptune(dissolving of boundaries, illusions) in Cancer next to each other, both opposite Uranus(freedom, sudden actions) in Capricorn I have a glimpse of what could have happened.  I think it was something that happened with her parents, she was the daughter of Clarke's significantly younger second wife.  Perhaps the death of her mother or some radical change to her environment caused her to retreat into her own inner world to seek shelter, very Venus Neptune in Cancer.  When I think of Cancer, I  image  how crab retreats into its hard outer shell when frightened by other creatures.  She was put into an arranged marriage to a bankrupt Irish Duke that shortly broke up after a year and which was never consummated.  I imagine lots of people think about what they would do if they had had that sort of wealth and for that matter why didn't she do anything with it?  She did give sizable amounts to charities and hospitals, but always from behind the scene, always kept hidden from public view.  I see how a large fortune could insulate one from the world if a person had no reasons or people to stayed connected with the outside world.  Also with her Mercury(mind) square Saturn(endings, fear) I imagine there were some strong fears she had.  She spent the last 30 years of her life in a hospital.  She was one strange and lonely person, I hope she made an easy transition into the world of spirits, it seems a part of her was already trying to escape. . .

 Other news,

Hosni Mubarak, former president of Egypt, and his sons were indicted today!  They are being charged with killing unarmed protesters in the 18 day revolt that deposed him from power.  He is coming up on his Uranus Return, which is not that common a transit for people, you have to live to around 84 years old to get it!  A Uranus Return entails freeing oneself from all previous obligations that one had for the past 84 years.  Interesting enough Sun sextile Uranus today, the light of the Sun is shining on him, so any secrets he is hiding will be found out.  He had a recent heart attack and is in detention.  Mercury(news) is conjunct his Sun today with Mars(action) and Venus(values, love) soon to follow.  I am sure he is now very aware of present situation.   He will either choose to fight and live on or he will choose to go. Those going through a Uranus return will either accept it and move on or opt out.   In looking at his chart, it looks like he may fight it out, at the very least to support his sons, since they are also being charged.  Its an end of an era in Egypt.  As I mentioned in my March article about Uranus's movement into Aries, Uranus in Aries marks the time of when the Ottoman Empire fell and Europe demarcated the Middle East.  I believe Mubarak's reign of 30 years, a Saturn cycle, was the end of the dictatorship period of long ago.  Hopefully Egypt will have a better political system and leadership that more closely fit the needs of her people.

One more chance. . .

Blogger ate my last post on what was happening this week in the heavens.  I will rewrite the article as soon as I can so as to keep everyone informed.  In the spirit of the Libra Moon, negotiation, today I am willing to give them another chance, provided that this be the last time this happens.  Rewrite coming soon!

Tornados, Bin Laden, Sick Friend, Oh my!!!

Wow there is certainly a world wind of info.  Tornadoes, Bin Laden, Sick Friend and a Royal Wedding.  Remember when I said Spring is the most volatile time in my post about Aries and Spring?  Do you doubt me?lol

So much is happening, I am going to try and attempt to explain some of it.  First off with the tornadoes, perhaps it could all that fire in the sky we have been having.  When lots of planets are all in one energy it tends to stir things up and cause disturbances, as in the 2 weeks of tornadoes that happened in the South, climax on the 27th of April. 

The death of Osama Bin Laden, now that is interesting, one astrologer I know mentioned its the Mars(action) Jupiter(expansion) conjunction. 2 years ago when Mars and Jupiter were joined in a Mars 2 year cycle the US was looking for him.  They found him, or rather with all the fire in the sky motivated to seek out his location and capture him.  Who knows the real story of why and when; bet thats classified. . .

I had one friend who went to the hospital on Sunday due to ecoli poisoning and was bleeding internally.  She is fine now, but on Tuesday I heard that a different friend's sister had internal bleeding.  Mars rules the planet Aries and in the rulership of mars is knives,acts of violence or bloodletting. 

Not to worry everyone, but all recent outer planets that changed signs will be going retrograde(backwards) before the year is over.  The events the past few months when planets Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter ere moved into new signs is a preview of what is to come in the coming years; after this year we get to fully experience their presence in these new signs and that comes with that experience.  

I also believe that this aspect of Uranus Pluto Square will herald in major changes through dramatic events through the world that will have long term consequences.  Especially when I think of Uranus(sudden action) in Fire (early Aries) and Pluto(power plays) in Earth(early Capricorn) the phrase I think encapsulates it is the nickname of Poseidon, "Earth Shaker."

Ladies and Gentlemen we are in Earth Shaker times.  Its rock and roll the non radio/mp3 version. 
Here is something I have noticed lately and this is still an early thought that I  have not fully fleshed out yet, but it is something I have noticed recently.  The 4 Elementals, (although recently I learned more about the energy of Spirit and Void :) ) Fire, Air, Wind and Water, I have seen their presence become more known in strong concentrated forms over the fast few years.  Especially now where new significant extreme events in nature happen every couple of weeks.  I see this as the planet trying to get our attention.  I am thinking of  the element Earth, it is support, a container, foundation, the physical, the Earth shakes, moves tectonic plates, earthquakes, which disturbs Water, which is responsive, reactive, flowing, can take any form, and from those violent tremors result in tsunamis .  The many planets in fire signs, lot of fire in the sky, wild fires in Texas, Fire to Consume, transform all it touches, purify, ignite the old forest becomes nutrients for the new.  Now Tornadoes, Air, formless, swift changing even quicker than Water, ideas, represents immediate change from the tarot.  I feel like the Earth is also given us a lesson in how this building blocks of our world operate.  Both mild or extreme conditions of these Elementals are present in our lives.  I can almost see this as the Earth flexing its muscle, to let us know we are on a huge living organism that ultimately has the final say on us humans.

Going to end here I have next and new pressing topic to publish this week about an important aspect of the moon that affects our daily life.  Until then!

PS Taught my first official astrology class this past weekend at Brid's Closet Beltaine Festival! Yea!!! It was great, I taught about the archetypes in astrological transits, which is something akin to what I mention in this blog :)
