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. . .
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.
