Aries New Moon astrology and the April Grand Cross

Today’s New Moon is in the cardinal sign of Aries – the first sign of the Spring season.  There is a sense of new beginnings – of pregnant anticipation.  Something  is about to burst forth, to blossom and the old is made new again. The New Moon occurs today at 2:45 pm Eastern and falls at 9 degrees Aries.  Both the Sun and Moon link up with Uranus, the planet of revolution, encouraging us to shed the shackles of the past and the restrictions of our established patterns and routines […]

A look back at the Astrology of 2011

Sankofa

I like the principle of the Sankofa Bird, which says that in order to understand the future we must understand the past.  When I see a new client I always go back over the past five years or so to see where they’ve been before I can help them to see what the future might hold, and the same holds true for global predictions.  The Romans held the same principle in their god Janus, who looks both forwards and backwards and rules the month of January – the first month […]

Solstice nautilus

The Sun enters the sign of Cancer at 1:16 pm EDT, an event that we call the Summer Solstice.  The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and the day at which the Sun reaches the highest point in the sky, but it is also a phase in the turning of the wheel of the seasons that is marked by the entry of the Sun into one of the cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Libra and Aries).  The cardinal signs are signs of initiation and action and when the […]

The Cardinal Drama peaks tonight

As I’ve been writing and discussing on the radio show, this is the week that the second wave of the Cardinal Drama peaks (the Cardinal signs are the signs of action and initiation: Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn).  Saturn is now in Libra along with Mars opposite Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, Pluto is in Capricorn. For a few hours tonight, after the Moon enters Cancer at around 6 pm EDT, the Moon will enter the fray, opposing Pluto (180 degree aspect) and forming a 90 degree angle (a square) […]

Cardinal drama in the news

I share this not to frighten you, but to demonstrate the power of the current planetary conflict. Germany’s “Love Parade” festival turns into a nightmare after police (Saturn) tried to stop revelers from entering the area of the parade and were unable to control (Pluto) the crowd (Jupiter/Uranus). read more here. Al Qaeda plants a flag in Baghdad after the murder of 23 Iraqi military fighters, demonstrating that the Uranus in Aries revolution is at hand. read more here. Personal details of 100 million Facebook users have been published in […]

New CIA warnings and the upcoming Cardinal Drama

The new CIA warnings that Al Qaeda will attempt an attack on the United States in the next 3-6 months is not a surprise to those of us monitoring the stars.  The square of Saturn to Pluto that occurred on January 31st, just two days before the announcement, is an aspect of fear and challenge.  After all, the opposition of Saturn to Pluto, the last major cycle of these two planets, coincided with the attacks of September 11. The final phase of the Saturn/Pluto square occurs August 21st and that would […]
