Neptune into Pisces - Setting the Stage for the Transcendence of Boundaries


It seems as if people have been on edge, waiting for something big to happen since 2011. The excitement has been growing since January 23rd. the day of the Aquarian New Moon and the commencement of the year of the Water Dragon. It is no secret that Neptune, the archetype of transcendence, dissolution and wild imagination will be enter Pisces his home sign on Feb. 3, 2012. This is only an introductory article to set the stage, more will follow in the next few days. After all the qualities and things relating to Neptune range from abdications to alien to adultery to angelic entities to boats of all kinds to clairvoyance to divination to mediums to melodramas to paranoia to ports to religions attitudes to sleeping disorders to theurgies to wizards to zeniths.

Timeline: last year on April 4, 2011 Neptune made a brief appearance in Pisces till Aug. 4th. 2011. Yes this giant gas planet ruling dreams, hallucinations, heightened sensitivity, altered states and the paranormal among a few states. Neptune the planet is huge being 17 times the mass of Earth and with an orbital period of 164.79 years. In astrological terms, Neptune signifies he strange or weird and with 12 Moons and severe weather patterns this makes sense. These weather anomalies are driven by the strongest sustained winds of any planet in the Solar System, with recorded wind speeds as high as 2,100 km/ Neptune who is god of water and the sea in Roman Mythology is connected to the symbols of the Trident, Fish, Dolphin, Horse and Bull. Poseidon in Greek Mythos. Poseidon was known as an "Earth-Shaker" In his benign aspect, Poseidon was supposedly able to create new islands and offering calm seas. When he became angry from being offended or ignored, he struck the ground with his trident and caused chaotic springs, earthquakes, drownings and massive shipwrecks. In fact we are seeing the water theme proliferating or should we say flowing? We are hearing about aquataxis, interviews with with Occupy Oakland Lake Merritt Aquapiers, water taxis for visitors to the America's Cup or wild theories about the USS Enterprise heading to the False Flag?
Finally all the waiting is over, Neptune will enter Pisces, his home sign for a 14+ year stay on Feb. 3, 2012. Neptune stays in Pisces till January 26, 2026 when the next stop is Aries. On that day there is also a grand earth trine forming. This will be the first long journey since Feb. 17, 1948.
Chart below is set for Greenwhich UK @ 7:04 PM UT, when Neptune enters Pisces:
Virgo is rising @ 8 degrees 26 with this appropriate Sabian Symbol: "A man making a futuristic drawing." The Ascendant is opposing Neptune-Chiron-Vesta in Pisces as the Virgo analysts leave their skepticism at the door. Mercury the ruler of this ingress chart is in Aquarius moving toward the Sun reflecting a major news announcement.

Mercury and Mars align for Obama's State of the Union but Saturn Gets in the Way


Since the commencement of this remarkable new moon cycle in Aquarius on January 23rd. @ 2:39 AM EST or 7:39 AM UT there hasn't been a dull moment for everyone including our leaders. Mars just stationed yesterday in hyper-critical Virgo which of course is the sign most associated with service and jobs. So here is my segway
into tonight's speech and the chart below set for 9:11 PM EST when Obama started speaking and he didn't finish talking and gesturing till 10:15 PM EST. Transiting Mars in Virgo now retrograde and applying to a close conjunction with Barack's natal Mars in the sign of the working class. Just a preview he was realistic about job loss during his administration yet exhorted and encouraged the weary masses.

Tonight's state of the union speech by given by Barack Obama with deft and scripted form, rhythm and cadence matched the current planetary changes in step. Obama mimics the culture of the 1930's when Uranus and Pluto were also square like today's massive time of upheaval. During the depression of 2012, we have Saturn the lord of the 10th house and Capricorn in a powerful TSQ with Mercury (in Capricorn) and Jupiter (in Taurus). No matter what Obama says we are in a crisis of delays, freezes and heavy restriction.

The Chart Below has Virgo rising (craftsmanship) with Mars right at the ascending angle. From an horary standpoint, the speech began on a Mars day and a Solar hour (great for a vigorous leader) Mercury - the orator and messenger is the Almuten of the first house. The timing is great but the oratory is hackneyed.

Like a roman statesman fueled by confidence & arrogance knowing that his opponents are still not ready to take him down, he blew his own horn about the "end of the Iraq war" and his part in the fantasy demise of Bin Laden . "For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to this country." Notice in the chart above that Ceres and Uranus are angular in Aries with he 7th house adding a heroic element of the warrior's success or what it appears to be. Both Uranus-Ceres are also closely trine Obama's natal Mercury in the rock-star sign of Leo. His ego jumps out first thing.
Along with Obama's natal Juno (partnership) in aggressive and dominant Aries is near the Ceres-Uranus transit in the 7th where the obvious alliance he has to the High Tech industry including the likes of Apple and Facebook. It was hard to miss Steve Jobs's widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, sitting with First Lady Michelle Obama at tonight's State of the Union address.

Then kept up the hope-change of getting those precious jobs back to US. " you can do to bring jobs back to your country, and your country will do everything we can to help you succeed." Another populist speech filled with tired rhetoric and cliches
does nothing to really help the American people.

Obama Bets the Environment
Unfortunately, Obama is willing to risk our environment to create jobs by supporting
the use of hydraulic fracturing, which injects a mix of water, sand and chemicals underground.
Obama Backs Fracking to Create 600,000 Jobs, Vows Safe Drilling The reality is that it is proven by our own government that hydraulic fracturing cause earthquakes. So not only is Obama going to open up the off shore waters to oil exploration per transiting Mars on top of his natal Mars while opposing Venus now in Pisces (gulf waters and vulnerable oceans).

Finally the chart below has a number of transits aligning with Obama's natal power and dominance as a centrist.
Starting with Mars on ascendant adding a passion and desire for service, then to the second house where transiting Saturn is near Barack's Neptune outlining a flexibility as empire dissolves. Things will be getting a lot worse and the current atmosphere of apathy will turn into a sustained panic if the Obama polices continue.

The nodes transiting in Sag. in the State of the Union 3rd. house of education, teachers and schools and Gemini near Obama's natal Astraea in the public house of promises for educators. One of the major alignments tonight which nailed the hard realistic perspective many feel yet offered practical solutions was transiting Mercury in Capricorn thru the 5th. house of tonight's event which represents enjoyment, fun, entertainment. This actually is used to deflect the conjunction Barack's natal planet of accountability-responsibility, Saturn. I say that because the transiting Sun in Aquarius is near Obama's expansive confidence and natural diplomacy per Jupiter in his natal chart. Adding the timing of perhaps a professional astrologer or just the natural as transiting Pallas-Moon-Neptune in the oratory's sixth house. These three bodies are all near Obama's point of destiny relating to past gifts S Node in Aquarius. The Sixth House (Mercury is lord and Mars is in synch) relates to service, the 6th House rules workers, the laboring classes, unions, labor organizations, wage conditions, employment and unemployment..
Along with police, civil service, issues around national defense. Obama thinks he is channeling Teddy Roosevelt in saying that no options are off the table when it comes to Iran.

The Mighty Hypocrites Fall along with PIPA as the Sun Enters Aquarius


Don't look now but things are about to move into hyper drive as the scales tip away from the morally bankrupt and unethical elite. This game changer relates to the Sun entering Aquarius on January 20th. @ 8:10 AM PST. With this ingress and the subsequent New Moon on January 23rd. when Mars stations and appears to move retrograde in Virgo, we are talking radical and revolutionary change. Before we discuss a Cain-style demise for Newt after the South Carolina primary and the bomb of
the damaging, sensitive information commencing from 2010 let's see the latest on the internet censorship bills. Talk about the power of internet pressure real Aquarian community stuff! Look what happened with the Stop Online Piracy Act or SOPA and The PROTECT IP Act or PIPA. This draconian legislation was opposed by some heavies on "the cloud" like the Mozilla Corporation,Facebook,Electronic Frontier Foundation,Yahoo!, eBay, American Express, reddit, Google, Twitter, Reporters Without Borders, Human Rights Watch, English Wikipedia and many more. Here is the latest - PIPA support collapses, with 13 new Senators opposed. This remarkable turn around of lawmakers
reflects tomorrow's exact Sun (Capricorn) square to Saturn (Libra) where...
Members of the Senate are rushing for the exits in the wake of the Internet's unprecedented protest of the Protect IP Act (PIPA). At least 13 members of the upper chamber announced their opposition on Wednesday. Sun (leaders) in hard aspect to Saturn in karmic Libra (loss and accountability) This is a transit dealing with responsibility during crises, delays, and major previous agendas for internet censorship like SOPA and PIPA. These senators are resigning themselves to a failed agenda, the same could happen to Newt's presidential bid.

Hell Hath No Fury
Now back to Newt and his wife ex-wife Marianne, the woman scorned and ready to wreak some massive revenge ala Juno now traansiting in Scorpio.
When we look at Newt's natal chart (born June 17, 1943 @ 11:45 PM in Harrisburg, PA) then add the Aquarian ingress set for January 20, 2012 @ 11:10 AM we see some interesting blows against the reptiles. Notice that transiting Sun entering Aquarius is square Jupiter the planet of ethics, morality and of course hypocrisy which Newt knows well. Their a whole lot of Newt's folly and shame here with transiting Chiron-Venus and Vesta all in Pisces (scandals) in a hard square to his natal Mercury-Uranus and Saturn in Gemini. So even though the articulate, spontaneous wit which has propped up Newt, that his natal Mercury-Uranus together in Gemini, it will be this mutable combo that will mark his demise. Note that Uranus, the planet of unexpected surprises is the modern ruler of Aquarius just as Saturn is the ancient lord. Back to Marianne, the middle wife -- the one between Newt's first and third marriages, the one who represents both Juno and Venus in the inner wheel of the chart below. Just like Herman, the brother Cain, Newt's presidential aspirations are about to implode.

Showdown at the Strait of Hormuz,


The Royal Navy's most formidable warship is being sent to the Gulf for its first mission as tensions rise in the strategically vital region, it can be disclosed.

It appears that the building tensions in the Persian Gulf are reaching a critical mass heading towards Monday's Full Moon in Cancer . In fact there continues to be a world wide focus on the Strait of Hormuz (a narrow, strategically important strait between the Gulf of Oman in the southeast and the Persian Gulf.) Notice below that I have set a chart for the Cancer Full Moon on January 9, 2012 @ 11:30 AM LMT in Oman. Notice that aggressive Aries is rising @ 12 degrees 30 with this curious Sabian: "A bomb which failed to explode is now safely concealed." We are in a time of attacks and counter attacks with a quality of lashing out but things will not go as planned.
Mars ruler of the chart below is in Virgo reflecting the constant war of words and small criticisms.
The Royal Navy said recently that they are sending their mightiest ship to take on the Iranian show of force in the Gulf.
In fact the British are ready to deploy their $Billion dollar warship the HMS Daring, a Type 45 destroyer. Another announcement came on Thursday June 5th. with the Moon-Mars square adding fuel to the fire building in the Gulf. Iran's Revolutionary Guards said will hold new naval exercises in the strategic Strait of Hormuz in February. Yes on February 3rd. Neptune will make an ingress into oceanic Pisces always a time of major changes for the seas and sea going vessels.

The chart above describes a time when impulse control is tough with cardinal signs on all the angles and Pluto in Capricorn at Mid-Heaven. The Moon is in the 4th house it's ruling place and is TSQ Saturn in Libra in the 7th and the Sun in Capricorn. The emotional charge, hysteria will be high and with Mercury recently entering Capricorn to square Uranus in Aries, words and communications about this nervous and militant situation will shock. Mars is opposing Ceres in the 12th house (karmic themes) and adding to the upheaval involving Iran's need for independence.

Most importantly Mars turns retrograde in Virgo at the time of the next New Moon in Aquarius on January 23 and will continue till April 14th). Mars retrograde is a time of angst and frustrations which will also effect workers who might hinder the delivery of vital services and goods throughout the world. This blockage of services will very likely include crude oil through the Strait of Hormuz. In Virgo Mars can signify a minor detail or mistake that could cause a confrontation.

Wolf Moon Rises above the Pack to Start 2012


January has been anything but quiet as we start the dreaded year 2012. Fires were burning out of control in Hollywood, birds dropping out of the sky in Beebe Arkansas again and a major psychological operations (PSYOP) centered around Mt. Rainer and crazed Iraq war vet to induce behavior involving gun control or fear of the wilderness? Fear of the wolf or the outsider?
So depending on time zones in the USA, you may experience the next Full Moon on either @ 11:30 PM PST on Jan. 8th or @ 2:30 AM EST on January 9th.
Commonly known as the Wolf Moon by Native American Indians like the the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. Traditionally a cold winter season when the wolves roamed hungrily outside the villages. There is a stark, coldness to the coming austerity programs the governments of the world feel forced to carry out.
For those Hawking fans on Jan. 8, 2012: English theoretical physicist Stephen W. Hawking turns 70. Hawking widely considered a genius, has powerful Mercury (in Capricorn) aspects including a close acerbic square to his natal Mars in Aries and an opposition to Pluto.
Regarding Hawking and this Full Moon, there is even a prominent Mercury aspect on this Full Moon - Mercury in early Capricorn is in an exact square to Uranus @ 3:24 PM PST adding a whole new dimension to eccentricity. Mercury-Uranus is also about progressive thinking and accelerated thought. Since Mercury is the weather planet and any aspect to Uranus can mean a sudden change in atmospheric conditions expect some crazy storms even a blizzard or two.

The Full Moon set for Washington DC has Scorpio rising put even more emphasis on ancient ruler of the chart Mars. Mars is in the collective 11th house still in orb of an opposition to Ceres. Mars-Ceres in difficult aspect speaks of the need to break away from dominance and oppression. Since Mars is ready to station and move retrograde, those powerfully vital and aggressive energies will get into a darker less conforming and frustrated place.

Fixed Stars for the Wolf Moon
First of all and continuing with the theme of Mars, the warrior is that Mars @ 21 virgo 49 is conjunct Denebola by degree. Denebola, the tail of the constellation Leo represents going against the mainstream of society.

Facies and Pluto @ 7 Capricorn 47 are conjunct by degree or longitude, Facies (a nebula), the eye of the Sagittarian archer represents a lethal and dangerous symbolism. Near Pluto is about an intense change and transformation accompanying a ruthless attitude.

The Heliacal Rising Star is Acumen which continues on the Mars-Pluto theme since Acumen is an open cluster of stars above the sting of the Scorpion. Acumen reflects the idea of suffering at the hands of others; while being subjected to rumours.
According to Robson: "Acumen has the nature of Mars and the Moon. It effects the eyesight and causes blindness of one or both eyes, if in conjunction with an afflicted luminary or in conjunction with a malefic that afflicts the luminaries. The opposition seems to be equally important."

The Heliacal Setting Star is Mirfak a star on the right side o Perseus, the slayer of Medusa.
Mirfak is also the young warrior with the upraised sword mirroring his hunting ability.
In cosmic alignment this video from tonight's Iowa Caucus of US Soldier who Tells Of Why He Supports Ron Paul's Foreign Policy connects us to the Mars-Ceres opposition and Denebola-Mars conjunction.

Mirfak represents an eager involvement and pursuit of the critical events of one's life.
in fact as the Heliacal Setting star there is a decidedly reckless quality which can also verge on misuse of authority.

Mirfak is also known to be associated with extreme or unusual weather which relates to the Mercury-Uranus square. Yes Perseus and Mirfak are said to be indicative of events effecting large numbers of people, especially those events caused by major meteorological phenomena. When prominent in a natal chart it is said to denote adventurous individuals, but also those who are less than honest in their dealings with others.
