The Sun finally transits out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, taking the personal edge off the bite of the various heavy influences of Pluto (money crisis), and Saturn (relationships). As the Age of Aquarius starts to flex its muscles (the internet) we are seeing the crumbling of the obsolete remnants of the Age of Pisces, and a few bits from just about everywhere.

The Magi were astrologers who used their knowledge of the movements (and resultant effects) of the stars to predict the future. A delegation was sent to the future King of Israel, much to the disgust of King Herod. You and I are not playing power politics like the Lord of Hosts and the House of Herod. But we can appreciate a look at the year ahead. Bringing a gift to the winning faction is always a good idea.
Today is the day of the full moon. Big deal, the doubters amongst you will smirk. Indeed, astrology is mocked, ignored by research and the scientists guild. I presume they are too busy whoring after Global Warming money in a way reminiscent of the pre-Reformation * clergy after Indulgence * coin. Such progressive minds, seeing consensus, even as they live far away from the squalid hives * they have created and ignore. This full moon is in the sign of Taurus, a place pleasing to the Moon. It opposes the Sun in Scorpio. Off the cuff, it is good for the mob of humanity, bringing the warrior Scorpion down upon the heads of those that vex them. False clerics, usurpers, and robber barons are exposed, in public places, like farm fields or gibbets. Vengeful Scorpio is distracted from their personal pleasures of lusts, gluttony, and earthly gain to attend the peoples business. How will this affect you?
Zombies have surfaced from the collective subconscious. Foreshadowing of the coming apocalypse? Perhaps. A metaphor for something else? Perhaps. Serious students of the occult should apply their arcane knowledge. Regardless, you can use astrology to prepare yourself. Others may scoff, but you can rest smug and superior when they get their heads cracked open and their brains scooped out. Astrology can answer the three basic questions that might trouble you about your zombie experience: where will I be when I find out, how will they get me, and your ultimate fate when you become a zombie.
Thoughts are things, the alchemists say, which does not make sense. It usually precedes a discussion (or lecture) about such a-scientific concepts like ‘action at a distance’, clairvoyance, or spontaneous human combustion. If there is proof, there is proof, right? Ideas exist as marriage partners to facts, or as gang bangers out to rape them. Ideas can be true, or false. There is the gray area between them, too. Ideas can be multi-concept, a matrix, with pixels of true and false. Finding examples from reality is the best way to separate the straight wand of truth from the broken wand of non. Reality, eh what. So, what of our great men, er, great persons, er Bacon Lettuce Tomato inclusive caring tax spenders, what of their version of the truth? Is it a secure walking staff, good for hiking? Or a broken wand, useless even for sodomy?
Barry O’bama, his destiny is written in the stars.
For details, you will have to click to enlarge. Finally, the great unifier has his birth certificate out. So freshly typed looking, and with a birth time. Now the astrologer can go to work.
Cate Blanchett, her destiny is written in the stars.
For full details, you will have to click to enlarge. We do not know Cate’s birth time, so we use noon, local time. Darling Cate has her Moon in a conjunction with Saturn, but separated across a sign boundary (Aries-Taurus). Her Sun is in Taurus as well. Cate wishes she was an old man, and is frustrated when she is treated as a woman. Ergo, a feminist. Cate wants to be a medieval baron. What could be more liberating than that? Knowing this, you can see this old man trapped in a woman’s body when she appears in that Robin Hood flick, with the puffy faced Robin.
The Age of Aquarius is upon us. Well, almost. March 12, the transition begins; by April 5, it is over. Where are we now? In the Middle, the Middle. If you are a Capricorn, you should start to laugh, and laugh.
Look at the cockroaches run. You can see fear in their eyes, on television. The big names, the big people, going down, going away. The rich ones are taking their carpet bags of money and heading for their two hundred acre farms. Too bad their money is in Confederate scrip. Fiat currency of the declining power. Mortgage backed paper, municipal bonds unglued by pension shortfalls, and arugula on sale the day before someone takes a geiger counter into the produce department.
The Age changes tomorrow. Neptune transits into Pisces, which it rules. This is the final accounting for the passing Age of Pisces. This may be good, this may be bad. Do you have any bad actions on your conscious? Stuff you really never talk about, to anybody. The bad stuff.
I do not mean stuff like having sex with dead people, although that would apply. Actually, it is more like having sex with people you have brought back from the dead. This is the more spiritual side of Pisces, and that means the way that the sign of the fish in the ocean can expedite communication with the departed. Scientists can go off into the small room and debate how hard it is to get data about this. The afterlife is ruled by this sign, and it is the powers of the afterlife moving around, dressed as Pisces, that are moving around, shaking the earth, and rescuing stranded dogs. Appease Poseidon, Ulysses.
The astrological new year begins this week. Do you have any unfinished business? Debts to the passing age of Pisces? Surely you have not forgotten your quiet Pisces friend? Maybe you better get your act together and settle accounts, because the Pisces has a big brother, and that patron is taking over for the next decade or two. It is like the return of the prodigal son, only this is a prodigal father, with a sheaf of lightning bolts and a highly refined sense of right and wrong. Better suck up to those Pisces in your life, if you value your skin as unsalted and unseasoned garnish. Rivers that rise in the night, earthquakes, and pestilence upon those that disturb the tranquility of the ocean where lives Pisces.
There are three significant transits in the next thirty days or so.
March 12, 2011. Uranus enters Aries. Happens every few hundred years, big deal. Associated with revolutions and social unrest of the masses; new technology that revolutionizes industry; and the full harvest of unintended consequences.
Observe carefully what happens around you on this day. What happens in your personal environment will give you insight in how what will happen to the collective will impact on you.
March 21, 2011: The Sun enters Aries, and as it does so, forms a conjunction with Uranus. The full moon happens just before this event, and that full moon is in the polarity Pisces-Virgo.
The Full Moon is associated with the completion of plans. These completed plans are worked by some Pisces-Virgo agency; unfortunately for their combination, the Sun changes sign (moves into a new polarity) and the Sun-Uranus aspect is activated. The interpretation being the works of the Piscean age are overthrown in revolution That happens on March 21, 2011. Whatever is the seed crystal that does this work will happen that day.
Observe carefully what is happening, even if you are hiding under your desk. One power is broken; one power rises; A power is forgotten, and another is rediscovered. Now, you want to be aligned with the power that is rising, eh what?
April 3 through 5, 2011: A triple conjunction of Moon, Mars, and Uranus in Aries, trending into the generational movement of Neptune into its ruling sign, Pisces.
The Moon enters Aries shortly followed by Mars; both aspect by conjunction Uranus. Mars rules Aries; this will be a powerful transit … when the Moon is added in, then everyone on the planet will feel the impact. Also, this is the same charmed moon that carries a message from the time of its fullness. Those Pisces-Virgo polarity plans that were supposed to come ripe on the full moon, but were sabotaged by sudden change, complete their collapse during this time.
These events are but a sideshow for the enthroning of Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is not a big one for ‘final judgements’, but is a great user of ‘tribulation’, in the form of earthquakes, unsettled oceans, and angry rivers. Neptune will be chart ruler for a decade or two, refining his legacy from the last two thousand years.
The evil will fall, and the good will be revered. But it will be Mars that cuts down the evil. Be observant early on to determine your best role in this. Better to be a chef than a sous chef, better a sous chef than an entree.
In the tarot, the seven of hearts is the card most closely associated with Valentines Day. It symbolizes faith and credulity; and it also has implications of permanent discords when the faith is broken. For historical figures, the emperor Valentinian of the Roman Empire is associated with this day, which falls within the astrological sign of Aquarius. Only an astrologer could tell you why a day celebrating love would fall in the head space under the domination of that intellectual sign; or for that matter, why people give presents to their dogs on a day that should celebrate the love between a man and his woman. Perhaps one of the three, be it emperor, tarot card, or Aquarius, can shed light on the other, and all three on the correct rituals for Valentines Day.
