Chiron and Neptune – the final dance

Chiron and Neptune are within twelve minutes of a conjunction now, about as close as they are going to come before finally separating in late November.  Although their conjunction is not exactly at the same degree, the influence of these two planets has been making itself known since early 2009.  Chiron is the healer of the soul, and Neptune connects us to our transcendent, creative and spiritual selves so these two planets together are a powerful pair. Over the past eighteen months since Chiron and Neptune have been traveling in […]

New Moon in Virgo, September 8 2010

The Virgo New Moon occurs Wednesday morning September 8th at 6:30 am Eastern (10:30 am GMT) on the heels of a beautiful aspect from Venus, the planet of love and beauty, to Chiron and Neptune. This Venus aspect has been opening up channels of love and creativity, assuring that old hurts can be more easily healed. With the Sun and Moon conjunct in Virgo at the New Moon, the emphasis here is on the details of life, bringing us back to earth after this creative opening. Mercury is also in […]

Me, the flu, and Chiron on the Midheaven

Last week I contracted a respiratory virus, followed by an intestinal virus and as I lay in bed writhing in agony I thought to myself, “wouldn’t it be ironic if I ended up with the swine flu after all of my ranting over the hyping of the flu vaccine? As it turns out, I don’t have the swine flu.  But I do think it’s interesting that I started to get sick the day Chiron hit the exact degree of my Midheaven.  Because I’m fascinated with the symbolism of astrology and […]

More on rage as Mars turns direct

aggressiveness

We have been seeing an unbelievable number of high speed car chases and road rage incidents in our local paper, as I wrote earlier, and it seems as though every day there’s another shooting from someone angry at something.  A search of Google news reveals that it’s not just in our area that people are chasing and shooting each other, and now an Ohio State University worker has killed a colleague and himself over a poor work evaluation.  The gunman was 51, the age at which Chiron returns to its […]

Pope facilitates the beginning of healing under Chiron and Neptune

Better late than never I suppose: The sexual abuse of children is not just a “heinous crime” but a “grave sin” that offends God and wounds human dignity, Pope Benedict XVI  said Tuesday after a two-day meeting with Irish Catholic bishops at the Vatican. The weakening of faith has also been a “significant contributing factor” in the sexual abuse of minors, the pope said, adding that “current painful situation will not be resolved quickly.” The pope’s comments came in a written Vatican statement at the end of the meeting, the largest […]

New Moon in Aquarius today!

crescentmoon

Crescent Moon art by Carl Homstad. This has been an exciting astrological week, with Mercury having entered Aquarius on the 10th and Venus leaving Aquarius for Pisces. While Mercury is in Aquarius (for the rest of the month) the mind (Mercury) is full of new ideas and brilliant new discoveries, while Venus turns her attention from the realm of reason to the world of Spirit and flow. Venus in Pisces brings us additional creativity which is encouraged by the Aquarian inventiveness of the mind (Mercury). That inventiveness begins to take form […]

Bill Clinton’s heart ailment: Chiron and the Sun

Bill Clinton underwent an angioplasty yesterday to open a clogged heart artery after experiencing chest pains.  Doctors say he is recovering normally and should be able to renew his normal activities soon. However, I have some concerns about the health of the former president.  Bill Clinton has the Sun in Leo, the sign of development and expression of the Self, and he has Libra rising which is often called the Peacemaker.  Clinton can be quite charming with four planets in Libra plus Chiron, but he also has a rather nasty […]

Avatar Blues

I haven’t yet seen the film Avatar so I can’t comment personally, but evidently some fans are reacting with depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film: James Cameron’s completely immersive spectacle “Avatar” may have been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora. On the fan forum site “Avatar Forums,” a topic thread entitled “Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora […]

News of Chiron from the Expo

Sorry, there will be no Astrological Musings Radio show today because I’m at the Body, Mind Spirit Expo in Raleigh this weekend.  Rich and I do these two shows a year where we showcase beautiful crystals and mineral specimens and some jewelry, and I do astrology and tarot readings.  They are a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet some fabulous people. Next week we’ll be talking about the big planetary events coming up in September.  Of course I’ll be writing more about those events as well so […]

The Solar Eclipse unmasks the fact that racism is alive and well

The major force of the eclipse is now behind us, although its influence will linger for the next few days.  Eclipses are often associated with the “unmasking” of something that has been hidden – in the solar eclipse, the power of the lunar unconscious force unmasks that which has been hidden from the conscious mind. So here we have the revelation that Professor Henry Louis Gates, arrested last Thursday (July 16) was arrested for trying to open the front door of his own home in Cambridge Massachusetts after a passer-by […]
