An Auspicious Capricorn New Moon /Super Moon Starts 2014 with Booms!


This years New Moon in Capricorn aligns with 2014 New Years Celebrations and occurs on January 1, 2014 @ 3:14 AM Pacific Time on the West Coast of the USA. In the UK. this Super Moon or Perigee Moon happens on January 1, 2014 @ 11:14 AM Universal Time. The Sun and Moon are in Capricorn alongside Pluto/Mercury and Venus which is further out by retrograde. On the surface Capricorn can be highly predictable, pedantic, stubborn and ambitious. Dig deeper and we find a an element of the mysterious and cryptic with this sign. Also with this combo, the potential for larceny, misuse of power and ethical malfeasance is present especially when inner lights (Sun-Moon) and planets are conjunct Pluto. with this new moon will relate to business scams and hoaxes along the line of the movie American Hustle which told about a real life sting operation known as ABSCAM. I say this because that tight grouping in the signs of climbing mountain goat and the sea goat. Per Manilius in reference to this sea-goat tail part of the figure says: "The last part of Capricorn, which consists of the sting at the end of its tail, prescribes for its children service upon the seas and the handling of ships, a hardy calling and one which is ever close to death."

  Booms and Quakes to Start 2014 Even though on a personal level ushering in this New Years/New Moon might be a times subdued, don't expect it to be quiet on a collective and earthy level. In fact leading up to this incredible New Moon there have been Loud Booms heard from Corpus Christi, Texas to Strange Booms in Northern Ilinois to Booms that Shook Houses in Cranston, Rhode Island. or more mysterious booms in Toronto and so far no explanation. Most of these incidents have taken place in Eastern half of the United State, primarily from Texas, Oklahoma on through the New Madrid to areas near the St. Lawrence Seaway. Since the Sun entered Capricorn there have been numerous accounts of quakes near the NMZ especially in Oklahoma where quakes have been continuous. Lots of evidence from the last two years shows that pressure building from New Madrid trying to move or have a major adjustment in the diagonal fashion causing booms throughout the East half of the states."

This lunation is known a Super Moon, when the moon is at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. A time when tides and seismic shifts are the most predisposed. The year 2014, which begins at the end of the Chinese Cycle of the Black Water Snake and has a total of five supermoons. They are the two new moons of January, and the full moons of July, August and September. January 1, 2014 is the first supermoon of the year, and January 30 is the second. Expect large tides around both dates. We won’t have a single calendar month with two supermoons again until January 2018.

The  New Moon is exact @ 10 degrees 57 minutes Capricorn and this degree translates to 11 degrees of the Seagoat with a mystical Sabian Symbol: Pheasants display their brilliant colors on a private estate. This image speaks directly of a display of wealth, beauty, game birds on large estates or parks. This symbolic image synchronous with an incredible New Moon offers us a time when we all can enjoy whatever riches(spiritual to material) that our environment offers us. Looking at the chart set for the UK we see that the Sun-Moon-Pluto-Mercury are in a tight conjunction at the top of the chart the Mid-Heaven.
One thing is for sure expect an audacious but traditional display welcoming this New Year. Yet hidden within this powerful combo of planets has Mercury separating from Pluto when their can be uncompromising, restrained and obsessive thinking. Yet this combo also stimulate investigations and reveal hidden secrets. Below is a chart set for the New Moon in London @ 11:14 AM Universal Time

Mercury is also square Mars (exact Dec. 31st @ 6:59 AM PST) which can add some tension,along with possible quarrels, and accidents, while stimulating decisions which are too impulsive or reactive. Impulse control and restraint should be practiced before you leap into the burning melee. We are fast approaching the year 2014, when life changes in many remarkable ways.
Below we see a chart set for the Capricorn Super Moon @ 3:14 AM in San Francisco, CA.
Saturn is rising with Scorpio in a trine to Jupiter in Cancer in the 8th house putting a huge focus on $$ coming in to the Bay Area for more building, housing efforts and of course transforming technology.
Since all those planets are in the 2nd house of values, money, stocks, investments and will oppose Jupiter expect more emphasis on excess and greed.
Since New Moon @ 11 degrees Capricorn (Sabian Symbol: "Pheasants display their brillant colors on a private estate.")
Sun/Moon are conjunct Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn so uncompromising and obsessive thinking will continue to manipulate and persuade folks into believing certain ways.
From the shadows more information about spying and surveillance will continue to be revealed
Of course with Saturn now in secretive Scorpio and in mutual reception to Pluto-Mercury there is an aura of mystery about this coming month.
Consider that Mars is the ancient ruler of Scorpio and is transiting in justice oriented Libra near Vesta and Ceres square Pluto
this will be triggering more protests, lawsuits, efforts at righting wrongs.
Mars is posited in the 11th house of groups and associations thus their will be strong advocates to bring about a balance to oligarchical takeovers by the billionaires. Actually that take over reflecting the sudden energies of the Uranus-Pluto squares when we add in Mars now in the sign of planning and negotiations.

With this New Moon, we have a  choice in 2014, whether to fly upwards, building a more spiritual world or stay mired in debris of our subconcsious.

From Fireballs to Weird Weather the Winter Solstice Arrives with Mystery and Pandemonium


It has been a colorful and wild ride since the last Full Cold Moon rose above the eastern horizon on December 17th. This was the same day that Uranus stationed  @ 9 degrees Aries: Sabian Symbol " A seer gazes into a crystal ball in front of him."  A symbol like this reflects some we may begin to glimpse flashes of intuition, clear sight and the ability to penetrate hidden mysteries.
While others may get confused by the literal meaning of symbolic messages similar to when the moon (in Virgo) opposes Neptune.  When Uranus stations and moves forward so do sudden, spontaneous events from accidents to  blizzards to strange weather to  electromagnetism to reversals to complete overhauls in power and eccentric utopian thinking etc.


So on December 21st. when I started this report, it's official the Sun is now in active, earth sign Capricorn as of 12:11 PM Eastern Time and 5:11 PM Universal Time for the Winter Solstice and longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Thankfully the moon continued in Leo which adds some fun and joy to the more serious elements today. The Sun (our identity, ego and will) entered more patriarchal and responsible Capricorn to add a resilient father figure to the already transiting Pluto (shadow) and Venus (lover). In fact on the next new moon on January 1st. the Sun will meet Pluto in an annual conjunction but this time the With the Sun now in cardinal Capricorn the ongoing Uranus-Pluto waxing square of major upheaval is triggered. Below is a chart set for Washington, DC marking the start of the Winter Solstice @ 12:11 PM Notice that Aries, the warrior is rising in a close square to the Sun (executive powers) at mid-heaven and Uranus is in the first house ( the nation or group as a whole) opposing Mars/Vesta/Ceres in the 7th. The 7th house represents foreign relations, treaties and/or disputes per open enemies. We see that South Sudan is becoming the latest flashpoints, where US. troops will be fighting Is war is coming to the United States or Martial Law? Or Swift Justice for the corrupt... Mars symbolized as the red planet, is ruler of this chart and as we said posited at a powerful angle in the 7th. moving into an explosive position with 90 degree angles to the Sun-Pluto (Capricorn), Jupiter (Cancer) found in the 4th house signifying land, houses, real estate, mines, minerals, quarries, the weather...And today (Dec. 22nd.) a new phenomena appears as a mysterious red dust blanketing Southern Texas. "It's very strange to see all this red dirt on the cars, and I've seen on many cars in front of me," Naveed Saqiab said while waiting in line at an area car wash. Finally one of the prevailing theories of this another in a series of strange events that will continue into 2014: Is that it was mud showers from Mexico. And here's the clue that will likely crack this one wide open: a tweet was sent out by the National Weather Service in Brownsville just a few days ago. They noted a very large dust and sand cloud originating from Mexico, just south of the border.

When we look at yesterday's Winter Solstice in North America and we see shades of that Bad Ass Gemini Moon in this from The Severe Side of Winter Storm Gemini! Sounds like some dualistic, mutable but ferocious storms reflecting the sign. "A severe weather outbreak could cause headaches for the estimated 94.5 million Americans planning to travel by road or air during this holiday season. On the warm side of Gemini, tornadoes, heavy winds and thunderstorms are possible across a wide swath on Saturday."
In my last blog entry I spoke of Black Swan events and in just the last few days leading up to and beyond the Solstice, unusual and unprecedented have transpired.
 One of those type of events involved the element of fire since  fireballs or meteors relating to the Uranus station in Aries trine the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius . Huge Fireball Was Seen Over the Southern U.S. Concerning that Full Moon fireball seen over much of the southern U.S... this is from Bill Cooke of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville... "Definitely a fireball; time was Dec 18 at 02:20:40 UTC or Dec 17 at 8:20:40 PM CST. It started out 52 miles above I-24 just south of Manchester, Tennessee and moved to the north of west at 50,000 mph..."

In fact per, Earth is passing through a stream of debris from Comet 8P/Tuttle, source of the annual Ursid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Dec. 22nd with as many as 10 meteors per hour streaming from a radiant near Polaris, the North Star. Yet the incidence and frequency of what is to come with meteors hitting the planet is increasing radically. It appears that a meteor fragment turned a 7 year old boy in Florida into an instant celebrity. It is natural to ask if this has anything to do with Comet ISON debris...

Another of those unprecedented Black Swan Events involved money and the elements of earth and water. In fact  Pluto (the destroyer)  and Venus (relates to currency)  in Capricorn opposing Jupiter in domestic, consumer oriented Cancer TSQ Uranus representing technology.  In fact this event where resulted in Forty Million Target customers hit in major credit card security breach
In fact this hack or rupture in the credit card system still has folks furious and frustrated.
Suffice to say with Uranus-Pluto continuing in a riotous waxing square moving into the fifth of the series  will occur circa  April 21, 2014,  expect more major hacks.

Over at the Bayou Corne sinkhole, with obvious references to the element water.
Surprise: Louisiana Sinkhole Slid Sideways Before Collapsing The Earth's surface slid sideways by as much as 10 inches (26 centimeters) before collapsing into a still-growing toxic sinkhole in Bayou Corne, La., a new study reports. "This was unusual for us," said Cathleen Jones, a radar scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. "Usually at a sinkhole, we expect to see vertical movement at the surface, some sort of subsidence," Jones said. "This horizontal motion is actually a new indicator..."
 I have discussed such anamolous activity at Assumption Parish  on my blog per example  this entry for October 14, 2012 referencing the Libra New Moon   In fact for that Full Moon over DC on 10-15-2012, Saturn was rising in murky Scorpio see the chart here. In the chart set for the Dec. 17th. Full Moon over DC, Saturn was also rising @ 19 degrees Scorpio as you see in this chart.

December 19th. another of those Blacks Swan type events:  This one involved roadway accidents (Mars-Uranus oppositions are a primary indicator of collisions.)
Here we have  bus accidents on the same road and involving casinos relating to the last full moon in Gemini, the twins opposing the Sun-Mercury in the sign of gambling and risk-taking.
1 person killed, dozens injured in 2 tour bus crashes on I-15

Holiday weather which has become rather weird will be discussed again but check this out from CNN. Severe and strange weather sweeps nation, threatens holiday travelers The weekend before Christmas, Mother Nature is gifting -- or, rather, clobbering -- the United States with a little bit of everything. Ice storms, snow, flooding, thunderstorms, tornadoes and record-setting warmth

In order to make sense of what has appeared and what is ahead in 2014, we should be aware that a Cardinal Cross will dominate the first six months of 2014. In fact this configuration  On December 7th. Mars entered Libra, sign of the scales, dragging us kicking and screaming into a shuddering and accelerated time period. Then on this last communicative, data oriented Gemini Full Moon, Uranus the shocker and trickster now in Aries stationed direct. Since Mars moves into a long retrograde cycle in Libra on March 1, 2014  he will continue to activate Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer
Forming a swift moving, justice oriented and life changing Cardinal Cross
As I mentioned in my daily forecasts it takes more than a few lunar transits to derail big systems like the world stock markets or create a world war.
From my daily forecast:
"Of course lunar transits are just a blip on the screen, so it will take a lot more planetary power to really shake things up. "  Well that planetary power is coming hot and heavy first with Mars entering Libra to oppose Uranus (exactly on Dec. 25th.)  The situation could turn drastic and prolonged, if the negotiating powers of Libra aren't used immediately.  I am saying this since,  Mars, the  will move into a difficult retrograde cycle starting on March 1, 2014. Then on June 25, 2014, a second exact opposition occurs after Mars finally moves direct in May 2014. These opposition could create triggers or  major precursor to a sudden event which could start Global Warfare. I say this because the situation in South Sudan is worsening daily as US citizens are evacuated.

So here we are one day after the  Winter Solstice (December 21st) as the Sun enters Capricorn, Venus (a planet connected to "world currency/exchange rates) stations to move retrograde till January 31st. 2014.
Pay attention since the Sun in Capricorn will square Mars, the warrior on January 2, 2014..
Also on January 2, 2014, Mercury also in reality-oriented Capricorn opposes Jupiter in emotional Cancer which could distort the truth via exaggerations.
Then on January 16th. Venus is Square Mars, a transit known for passions and anger that can get out of control. By January 31st, when Venus stations direct @ 14 degrees near Pluto both in determined business-oriented Capricorn and opposing Jupiter, now retrograde in domestic/house oriented and sensitive Cancer we will see more unstable financial conditions. Since Jupiter will move direct in March, we can expect enhanced recklessness in the markets and over-optimism,which should cause concern or even panic heading toward the next exact opposition in the middle of April 2014.

Let's switch to fixed stars by paran/angle, as we try to make sense to more of these events: First off: On the last Full Moon, Antares, the heart of the Scorpion Constellation was the Heliacal Rising Star over both DC and Lousiana. Also when the Sun entered Capricorn to start the winter Solstice, Antares was again the the Heliacal Rising Star. When rising Antares represents the twin forces of passion and obsessiveness. Antares is also one of the four Royal Stars of Persia, also called archangel stars. Antares corresponds to the angel Oriel known as Watcher of the West. Antares doesn't have a great reputation and is a double edged sword so to speak: Per Robson: It can cause malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, broad-mindedness, evil presages and danger of fatality and makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy. 
The Heliacal Setting Star over Washington, DC for the Solstice is El Nath, a double brilliant pure white and pale gray star, marking the tip of the northern or left horn of the constellation Taurus. El Nath being the horn of Taurus, is a weapon that can be used for good or for ill. El Nath is said to create a confronting attitude and a practical desire to deal with real life issues. When setting El Nath is about loving a challenge via a combative attitude. Echoed by Robson: El Nath has the nature of Mars and Mercury. It gives fortune, eminence and neutrality for good or evil. 
Since we don't have the time or the inclination to examine all the Fixed Stars in this Solstice reading, lets look at one obvious choice Aculeus, an open cluster of stars above the stinger of the Scorpion. Aculeus was closely conjunct Mercury by longitude in the DC Solstice Chart. Aculeus close to Mercury speaks volumes about harsh criticism and enduring attacks. Aculeus has a notorious reputation in astrology as one of 'blind stars' along with Acumen found in the Scorpio constellation and is associated with eyesight problems. Aculeus also tends toward a morbid outlook, seeing the worst rather than the best in everything. Dr. Morse goes on to say "If their religious views are affected, as so often with anything in Sagittarius, there is a tendency to be either the 'hellfire and damnation brigade' or to take up a fierce anti-religious and even anti-God stance" With this we can transition again and look closer at Mercury.

  Mercury Out of Bounds Before we finish this report, let's look at Mercury aka Quicksilver moves at an accelerated pace in fire signs like the current transit in risk-taking and changeable Sagittarius when passionate fires can start up quickly and then be quenched just as fast. Mercury in astrology represents, news, networks, media plus our point of view and what we think. When this Messenger of the Gods, Mercury transits in the sign of the archer, it is about candid, convictions many times along religious lines. When Mercury is placed in Sagittarius, he is traditionally at detriment and even mores so being close to the Sun in Capricorn. Expect some sudden falls from grace to occur. NOW ADD IN DECLINATION! Declination is one of the two angles that locate a point on the celestial sphere in the equatorial coordinate system, the other being hour angle. Declination's angle is measured north or south of the celestial equator, "When a celestial body goes beyond this maximum declination of 23°27', either north or south, it is considered out-of-bounds. In that position, the planet is outside the boundary limits of the ecliptic plane - that is, beyond the plane of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. " Currently Mercury is Out of Bounds (OOB) @ - 24 degrees 36' South. per declination and already Void of Course in outrageous Sagittarius when risk taking is ineffective, rumors, spread along with outrage considering that Mars in Libra (sense fo justice) opposing Uranus in Aries (internet anger) . When Mercury is OOB, not only celebrities/ leaders or just about anybody who has a platform to express (via Social Media like TWITTER) will tend shock their audience with audacious, unusual, sexually oriented and socially unacceptable topics per Phil Robertson of the Duck Dynasty. even the controversial #HasJustineLandedYet The entire Duck Dynasty Debacle and other manufactured controversies reflect this Mercury placement when we add in the Out of Bounds factor. Per Thor News: "the outrage I witnessed everywhere over A&E's firing of Phil Roberson of the Reality Television show Duck Dynasty. It was everywhere. All over the TV the Radio Twitter Facebook. You couldn't escape it" Thors Video below captures the essence of being able to look at the big picture, one of the positive qualities of Sagittarius. In other words don't get hung up in phony distractions and look toward the future. This is an important reminder about the way to interpret and utilize the power of Uranus stationing @ 9 degrees Aries: Sabian Symbol " A seer gazes into a crystal ball in front of him."

Enjoy the holidays and God Bless.

Shocking Full Cold Moon in Gemini - Black Swans and Surprises


Are you ready for the next Full Moon on Tuesday, December 17th @ 1:28 AM Pacific or 4:28 AM Eastern?
This lunation was called the "Full Cold Moon or the Full Long Nights Moon" by Native Americans for excellent reasons.  This is always a time when the icy grip of winter clamps down.
Also as we move toward the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21st)  the Moon hangs above the horizon for a longer duration.  This midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun and as we will see mutability and restlessness of this lunation with the Gemini/Sagittarius axis good for amping  up the excitement level with cosmic and mundane data/information overload. 

Severe weather is the real story of the day with a  dangerous 1000 mile snowstorm is blasting the East Coast of the USA.  It is cold everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere as the Cardinal Cross continues to roll ahead with Mars opposing Uranus for sudden freezes and cold snaps from Israel to Alexandria and Cairo. Snow in Cairo, first time in 112 years!

 Israel got clobbered to by snow too as the Middle East is also swimming in a Black Swan Event.
'Historic' Israeli Snowstorm; Power Outage In Jerusalem

 In fact the Moon is @ 26 degrees Gemini - Sabian Symbol: A winter frost in the woods.
This symbol can reflect the struggle to survive cold and heartless conditions during barren times.
Also there is feeling of some of being "frozen out" or lost and neglected like those who may lose their unemployment benefits due to the new budget.

In the chart set for Washington, DC on Dec. 17th. @ 4:28 AM EST, the  Moon resides in the 8th house or natural house of Scorpio and the ascendant we should be aware of those correspondences In other words the 8th. relates to debt, taxes, death, probate, inheritance, losses, international finance, multi-national corporations and social security.
Of course with the Sun @ 26 degrees Sagittarius and in the another financial house, the 2nd. The 2nd house relates to money markets, banks and financial institutions, investments, national wealth and values. .the Sabian - "A Flag Bearer in Battle."
A symbol of convictions mixed with fanaticism and leadership weighed down by responsibilities and with Mercury near by in Sagittarius keeping an optimistic and brave face mounting troubles (notice Saturn, Lord of Karma right on the rising). Looking further at the chart below set for Washington, DC we notice that Saturn is almost exactly conjunct the ascendant which implies restrictions, control and passion in Scorpio. This Scorpio mash-up reveals more debt trending and secrets which have kept our country in check for a long time.

Mars is the co-ruler of this chart since it is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. Pluto is the modern ruler of this chart and as we see Mars is in powerful cardinal cross involving Uranus/Pluto and Jupiter.
Right after the Full Moon, the planet of eccentric shifts, Uranus stations (@ 9:39 AM PST) to move direct to really shake things up. This could all add up to an unprecedented, unexpected and shocking Black Swan Event. In my next report, I will go into more detail using fixed stars, but for now enjoy the surf
. Some history... The term Black Swan originates from the (Western) belief that all swans are white because these were the only ones accounted for. However, in 1697 the Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh discovered black swans in Australia. This was an unexpected event in (scientific) history and profoundly changed zoology. After the black swan were discovered, it seemed obvious that black swans had to exist just as other animals with varying colors were known to exist as well. 

Mars is traveling in justice-oriented Libra is posited in the 11th. house representing the legislature, Congress, Senate, allies of the country, local government and national purpose. Mars, the warrior rules the military, the police, aggressiveness but in Libra opts for negotiations but there is resistance. Mars in this chart is applying towards an opposition with Uranus in the 5th. house connected to all things Leo. The reason I mentioned the Black Swan idea is that this occurs on the 5/11 house axis when shocking things occur. In this mundane chart, the 5th. represents places of entertainment, sports, fashion, leisure, children, games of chance, speculative interests, linked to Stock Exchanges. We could a sudden upswing with the Dow over 16,000 followed by a precipitous drop!

 Uranus is stationing direct @ 9 degrees Aries. Aries the symbolic Pioneer, Adversary and at times the raging Bersker! The Sabian Symbol for 9 degrees Aries: "A seer gazes into a crystal ball in front of him." This reflects that this moon will bring flashes of intuition, clear sight and the ability to penetrate hidden mysteries for some. While others may get confused by the literal meaning of symbolic messages. ONE thing for sure don't get lost in the supposed, BIG PICTURE since Mercury now in Sagittarius has just entered an "Out of Bounds" position by declination and is moving towards the Sun in overly optimistic Sagittarius! Again there is a tendency toward the irrational exuberance fueled by the mainstream media trying to paint over the reality of what is coming. From Matthew 24:36: "However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows"
Consider that Uranus moving direct connects with the unexpected, revolutions, anarchy, innovations, technology, and earthquakes. In Lunation charts (New Moon and Full Moon events) an afflicted Uranus can trigger upheavals, revolution, plane crashes, train derailments, explosions, large accidents, severe weather earthquakes, tornadoes With Comet ISON's fragments in an erratic orbit, more CME's delivering rapid fire blows to the Earth's magnetic fields and an upswing in meteors/fireballs lightning storms watch for crazy weather. This Uranian station offers the real possibility of larger and continued protests, strikes and riots for real and perceived freedoms.
Saturn is transiting @ 19 degrees Scorpio with this Sabian Symbol "A parrot listening then talking repeats a conversation he has overheard."
This Sabian has obvious references to the NSA Surveillance scandal, the idea of channeling information, translating languages, talking heads and yes brainwashing. Expect more push back from the collective against this type of invasive activity now being implemented by social media .
More to follow in my next blog report...

Too Much Mandela or Jupiter in Cancer opposing Venus in Capricorn?


Today marks one of the Colossal Staged Events in History. With the passing of Nelson Mandela, along with the start of a mourning process both in South Africa and further afield, comes the launch of one of the country’s biggest ever staged events as it gears up to bury the beloved father of the Rainbow Nation 91 world leaders, heads of state and dignitaries from around the world were there. To satisfy the hungriest "Celebretard" a brigade of superstars who each take pride in calling Mr Mandela a friend. This included luminaries like U2 frontman Bono, singer Annie Lennox, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, talk show host Oprah Winfrey and supermodel Naomi Campbell. So what is the astrological reason for such an historic event? Why did some of the whose who of the whose who of the NWO schlepped over to South Africa with their bodyguards and entourage?

 Jupiter, the King of Gods stays on the average one year in each sign on this passage around the Sun.
When Jupiter, the planet relating to expansion, is in that sign, we generally are inundated by way too much of the symbols, qualities, nuances and keywords of that sign. Jupiter made the ingress into Cancer on June 25, 2013 and remains till July 16, 2014. Currently Jupiter is traveling in the sign of the Summer Solstice, Mothers, Babies, Baby Bumps, Africa in general, breasts, cooking, families, stomach, nutrition, boats, ponds,silver (why price has been down), toilets etc.

This type of expansion also relates directly to famous people born in that sign, like Nelson Mandela (born July 18, 1918) With Jupiter now transiting in Cancer and retrograde is trine Saturn in Scorpio, the sign relating to death, funerals and extremes. Jupiter in a positive angle and the second passage of this trine Saturn marks a time when political leaders reach accords and agreements around economic matters. This is also a time when TPTB tend to rely on more traditional means to seal these deals. One such agreement which is being rammed down the throat of many leaders is the Trans Pacific Partnership or TPP These ongoing negotiations have drawn criticism and protest from the public, advocacy groups, and elected officials, in part due to the secrecy of the negotiations... Again we see forces of Saturn in Scorpio at play. Jupiter is also opposing Venus now in ambitious, controlled, restrictive and colder Capricorn. More importantly with Venus opposing Jupiter, some of the biggest celebrations and gatherings can occur. Plus since Venus is stationing to move retrograde on December 21st this opposition will again become closer as Jupiter continues retrograde till March 6th. When Jupiter, the planet relating to ethics, morals and corruption is retrograde don't expect the light of day to shine on virtuous activities by those in charge. The Big Mandela Memorial is all about utilizing touchy, feelie emotional reaction (Jupiter in Cancer) to control and parse out the worlds resources. Africa is particularly vulnerable now that Mandela has passed. Jupiter is also opposing the planet of Fat Cats,the Notorious, Oligarchs and Power Players, Pluto in authoritarian, responsible, traditional Capricorn

To reiterate this is one  most staged events of the year and decade.
91 World Leaders for Mandela Memorial in Pretoria December 10th
List of Famous and Royal Attendees (royalty?)
yes it is true he was descended from Thembu royalty (one of Mandela's ancestors was paramount chief in the 18th century.

 Here is a list of High Profile Attendees to praise 'giant of history' at Mandela memorial

President Barack Obama - United States of America
Prince Charles - United Kingdom
Prime Minister David Cameron - United Kingdom
President Francois Hollande - France
King Philippe - Belgium
President Raul Castro Ruz - Cuba
President Mamnoon Hussain - Pakistan
Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz al-Saud - Saudi Arabia
Prince Felipe de Borbon - Spain
Pope Francis
Princess Victoria - Sweden
 Prince Federick - Denmark
 Queen Rania al Abdullah - Jordan
 Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour  and Jordan's  President
 Robert Mugabe - Zimbabwe
 Grand Duke Henri - Luxembourg

Once again,  Nelson Mandela was born  on July 18, 1918,  with Sun-Pluto-Jupiter all in the sign of the Crab and the protector.  We  see that all those cardinal transits from Mars in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn and the most expansive of all , Jupiter in Cancer are   translating his legend, the myth and blue beaming, social media style a mega dose of Public Relations.
A Ceremony of Remembrance is expected to be held in the Soweto football stadium that previously hosted the soccer World Cup, known by locals as the Calabash after its resemblance to a traditional beer-drinking pot.
Looking below at a BiWheel Chart below:
with the Ceremony of Remembrance (romanticism and nostalgia are primary qualities of the sign Cancer) set in Soweto for Dec. 10th. on the outside of the wheel and Mandela's Natal Chart inside, there are so many planets lining up that  fire works will break records Mercury-Uranus style.
First the Sun in ostentatious Sagittarius near Mandala's natal N. Node,
ruler of Sag. Jupiter now in Cancer over his natal Sun and trine his moon in Scorpio
expanding all the memories, celebrations and a ongoing traditions related to his life
transiting Mars, Vesta (devotion), Ceres (nurturing) all in Libra over Mandela's natal Mars in the sign of justice, compromise and charm
transiting Saturn in Scorpio adding depth and passion with a conjunction to his natal Moon in Scorpio....

Will this celebration over take the Obama Peace Prize, Norway Spiral in 2009? Undoubtedly over the next few days leading up to the December 15th. private ceremony, there will be some type of faked supernatural sign appearing in the heavens... Nelson Mandela funeral: what happens now One thing is for sure don't expect full scale world-wide revolution till end of January/February.

What we will have is the staged reconciliation of world leaders in their overly pretentious and congratulatory manner. with Barack Obama in the center of the action. This picture says it all along with Michelle's long face and with the comments from mashable. Here is an example of how Saturn-Jupiter works together in the appeasement process: showing him shaking hands with Cuba's president, Raul Castro, at this memorial service. In fact now that the NSA spying scandal has reached critical mass as Mars continues in Libra wanting to write wrongs so to speak, the USA has to appease. We see part of that process to placate those who are genuinely angry about the mass surveillance techniques. Obama was greeting a line of world leaders and heads of state attending the memorial in Johannesburg. He also shook hands with the Brazilian president, Dilma Rousseff, who has clashed with Obama over National Security Agency spying.

It is best to watch this event with a jaundiced eye and those that follow. Remember that other huge natural and man-made events are coming just as Uranus stationed direct on Dec. 17th.  Pay attention  for some unexpected sleight of hand activity  as all these dignitaries assemble in the Southern Hemisphere while the rest of us freeze our tails off here in the North.

Killer Freeze and Ice Storm Hits Hard with the New Moon - An Astrological View


Since the New Moon arrived on Monday, December 2nd., severe and dangerously cold weather has created havoc and even from four homeless have died from exposure in the Santa Clara County. Santa Clara County officials announced Friday that four homeless men had died over eight days of hypothermia-related causes, including three in the previous 48 hours as a cold snap sent the region into a deep freeze. Records were broken in the San Jose Area: Temperatures throughout the greater San Jose area reached a low in the mid-20s in the overnight hours Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. The low at Mineta San Jose International Airport was 30 degrees, breaking the previous record of 32 degrees in 1931. Cold weather records were also broken in Livermore, 26 degrees; Mountain View, 33; and Oakland, 37. There was also a rare dusting of snow on San Jose's Mount Hamilton on Friday evening. Generally it is the planet Uranus which is responsible for breaking all types of records including those involving cold temperatures. As we will see below.

Astrometeorology and the San Jose Freeze
 Looking at a chart set for the New Moon on December 2nd @ 4:22 PM for San Jose, California and the Big Freeze,  let's examine some of the reasons for hyperborean chill  using Astrometeorological techniques are used with solar ingress (spring, summer, fall winter)  lunation charts (either new or full moons).   Primarily we use the 4th house as the  main indicator followed by the sign and planets on  the first house and the 10th. In other words 50% of the overall prevailing conditions are described by the planets in the 4th house, their sign and the aspects they make to other planets, This is then followed by the sign on the cusp of the 4th. and its ruler. At first glance we only see an asteroid, Pallas intercepted in Virgo. Virgo tends to indicate cold, a dry cold which is on the cool side with winds; blustery but there must be something else going on?. Then we see that Pallas is also opposing Chiron and Neptune in Pisces intercepted at the top of the chart. Neptune indicates cool, wet, fog, mist along with peculiar, freakish weather events and since Mercury in the last degrees of Scorpio tends to intensify the action of the rest of the chart and never fails to bring an extreme of some kind we look at the movement of this winged messenger. Bingo, Mercury moved into Sagittarius on Dec.4th. @ 6:42 PM. to square Neptune, the coldest temperatures were felt on Thursday morning. In fact skipping ahead, Aquarius is on the cusp of the MC. (Medium Coeli) or Midheaven located midway between its ascension on the eastern horizon and descension on the western horizon. The ruler of the MC is Uranus always a record breaker and big indicator of this sudden cold snap. Leo is found on the cusp or IC. or Imum Coeli (Latin for "bottom of the sky") The ruler is the Sun conjunct the Moon in an angular 7th. house. The moon considered chilly and wettest of all planets being in Sagittarius is in mutual reception to Jupiter in Cancer. It is said that when the Sun in combination with the Moon is in mutual aspect to other planets, this can also result in extreme weather conditions.  Jupiter is also in an opposition to Venus in Capricorn and Capricorn is related to some of the  lowest temperatures in winter.   Venus is still Out of Bounds by declination which tends toward not just low temps but augments snowfall and  freezing rain.

 Let's continue in our analysis of the New Moon chart for San Jose, California and  examine the remaining 25% of the prevailing conditions.  We start by looking at the 1st house - using the same formula. Gemini was rising at this New Moon thus ruler Mercury as we said found in the last degrees of Scorpio in the 6th house a major player. Mercury at this time was applying to a square with Neptune, intercepted in the 10th house in Pisces adding to theis freakish weather event. The remaining 25% from the rest of the chart puts the focus on the MC or Midheaven at 14 degrees Aquarius relating to the unexpected and ruler Uranus, which brings sudden reversals and breaks records. We also have to take in account that Mars was in the last degrees of Virgo heading toward an opposition with Uranus, the progenitor of cold, dry air masses resulting in winter freezes.   Uranus is still in orb of a square with Pluto, a planet known for violent extremes and cool temperatures.
Note that squares and opposition are regarded as  storm breeders. Squares and oppositions between Mars and Saturn or Mars and Uranus can engender some very powerful storm systems.
  Near the MC is also the asteroid Juno transiting in Aquarius. Juno (an asteroid usually known for partnerships) is associated also with the atmosphere and brings storms. In Aquarius, Juno brought unexpected and bitter, arctic temperatures.

Ice Storm Continues From Texas to the Ohio Valley Today's weather news was filled with accounts of ICE Friday and the deadly ice storm in U.S. which knocked out power, halts flights. This is severe cold weathe ris happening all over the country as some forecasters say is the worst to hit the United States in years slammed the nation's midsection Friday, snarling travel and knocking out power for hundreds of thousands of customers.
A dramatic announcement that The ice storm cut power to hundreds of thousands of customers from Texas to Tennessee after the New Moon. The Oncor Power Company, which delivers power to more than 3 million customers in Texas, reported more than 260,000 power outages at the peak of the storm early Friday.

Astrometeorology and the Dallas Winter Storm 
 Below is a chart set for the New Moon on Monday Dec. 2nd in Dallas, Texas @ 6:22 PM CST Gemini is rising, like the chart set for San Jose, CA but @ the last degrees thus the ruler is also Mercury posited in the 6th. house in Scorpio. Mercury in this case represented cool, frigid air coming from the north. Plus Mercury in Scorpio brought extremes, that were destructive. With the dangerous ice storm that crippled Texas, the Mercury-Neptune square was even more intense since Neptune, which can bring torrential downpours and wet weather was moving toward the MC. Using the same formula as we did for the San Jose chart where 50% of the overall prevailing conditions are described by planets in the 4th house we notice first that Virgo is on the cusp. Virgo tends to indicate cold, a dry cold air adding blustery winds. Pallas conjunct the IC or or Imum Coeli closely opposing Chiron and Neptune in Pisces adding danger to the residents. In the 4th house we find Mars in Virgo near Vesta and Ceres in Libra and they all oppose Uranus. Thus Uranus, the record breaker at the top of the chart and in a T-Square Pluto adds up to hyper freezing and acute extremes. Squares and oppositions between Mars and  and Uranus can engender some of the most aggressive storm systems.  The important communique is that it ain't over yet. Winter Storm Dion, the fourth named winter storm of the 2013-14 season, will result in more snow and ice for some of the same areas impacted by Winter Storm Cleon. This monster storm Dion is just getting started and will  spread snow and ice from the Midwest to the Mid-South, Ohio Valley, Middle Atlantic and Northeast Saturday night into Monday. 

The lingering frigid air will not only lay in the path for more icing this weekend but will also delay recovery in communities dealing with widespread power outages and thus no heat. This storm system dubbed "Winter storm Cleon" moved east, parts of several states from Texas to Arkansas to the Ohio Valley will see rapidly changing conditions as rain changes to snow or ice with falling temperatures. Mars enters Libra on December 7th. @ 12:42 PM Pacific which coincides with vigorous and potentially deadly Winter Storm Dion. With the ingress of destructive Mars we began to see a perilous and super active cardinal cross take shape. So far as of early Saturday, there have been 11 fatalities from the cold, ice and snow in the USA. 

Ice Age Starts in 2014?
As the cardinal cross develops into 2014 with Mars opposing Uranus adding swift and sudden weather extremes along with Pluto/Venus in Capricorn opposing Jupiter in Cancer will bring  mega-energetic storm systems.  In fact we may want to look at a recent article from This article discusses how regional, rapid climate change occurred 12, 140 years ago after major volcanic eruptions. 

Everyday we hear about new eruptions and volcanic activity form perennial spots on the Ring of Fire. Mount Marapi in  West Sumatra which erupted Saturday resulted in a column of thick, gray ash 350 meters high while  Kamachatka’s Klyuchevskoy volcano the highest active volcano in Russia discharged a massive 6 KM high ash cloud. We currently have 35 volcanoes erupting in the world presently adding to the potential for a new ice age to develop similar to what happened with the Younger Dryas or Big Freeze at the end of the Pleistocene period.

New Moon in Sagittarius - Tall Tales, Rumors and Enlightened Truth?


The forces of self-righteousness and the search for the meaning of life gather in philosophical Sagittarius. Then the Moon representing our inner nature and unconscious and Sun, our ego and identity are conjunct @ 4:22 PM Pacific time or on December 3rd. @ 12:22 AM Universal which marks a new moon. We have entered the realm of the high priest and winged centaur and the most adaptable and mutable fire sign. The Sun and Moon together in the sign of the archer and hunter, Sagittarius ruled by expansive Jupiter will inspire and motivate us to act on a grand scale. Mercury will join these two lights/personal planets (December 4th.) to add to tall tales, exaggerations and big fish stories since Mercury, the outlandish messenger will square Neptune (December 6th.) in aquatic and dubious Pisces.

Update for December 6th.
A hoax which totally relates to Neptune in Pisces (marine-like creatures) SQUARE Mercury in Exaggerated Sagittarius
Mystery ‘alien-like creature’ seen in Bristol harbour-a hoax>
Experts were baffled after video footage emerged of a glowing “alien-like creature” swimming in Bristol harbor. Stunned eyewitnesses filmed a mystery luminescent, tentacled being, which was flashing a variety of colours, floating close to the top of the water. Videos of the strange marine object in the city’s historic docks were posted on Youtube and Twitter with many claiming to have seen an alien. Marine biologists admit they are baffled, but claim the footage could be a marine salp which had drifted off course by the weather. Dr Steve Simpson, senior lecturer in Biosciences at the University of Exeter, said: “It’s very intriguing, I don’t really know what to make of it.
Mysterious creature spotted in Bristol harbor: Experts are left baffled by a bizarre 'GLOWING JELLYFISH' - but is it a hoax?
Experts were baffled today after video footage emerged of a glowing squid-like creature swimming in a harbor.
Stunned eyewitnesses filmed the strange, luminescent, tentacled object which was flashing a variety of colours floating close to the top of the water.

Just like Jimi Hendrix said on his prophetic and ground breaking album Axis Bold as Love, regarding the subject of UFO's: "As you well know you just can't believe everything you see and hear, can you?. Hendrix (born Nov. 27, 1942) a strong Sagittarian with Sun-Mercury-Venus all in the sign of the story teller opposing Saturn-Uranus in literary Gemini. Jimi was one of the prophets of the sixties who tried and succeeded in awakening humanity to both love, brotherhood and a new renaissance period on earth Hendrix also spoke of positive extraterrestrials from another galaxy, Andromeda perhaps? I bring all this up because we are about to hear some even wilder fantasies coming this week. Already we are seeing massive confusion around whether or not Comet ISON actually disintegrated on the Thanksgiving brush with the Sun. Suffice to say, Jimi's words about deception, delusions and rumors should be noted as the sign of deep space and things taken in astronomical proportion will dominate this week.

 Today the Sun and Moon are conjunct @ 11 degrees Sagittarius with this Sabian Symbol: "In the left section of an archaic temple, a lamp burns in a container shaped like a human body." This symbol speaks of a form of enlightenment riding along side this new moon. We will feel motivated to connect our spirit and mind with our body and treat them as a sacred temple. In others words we are at an evolutionary juncture which unites the left and right side of our brains is crucial and not worshiping the body at the expense of our souls evolution.

 One place where there will be the continued battle of the flesh vs spirit intermingled with tall tales will be San Francisco. In the chart below, set for this new moon, Gemini is rising @ 5 degrees Gemini - with the Sabian Symbol. "A radical magazine or publication asking for action displays a sensational front page." This symbol relates to revolution, the need for reform with constraints being broken and agendas challenged. we could see a literal version of the second Hunger Games movie - Catching Fire. This movie has a special appeal for the generation who was born with Pluto in Sagittarius from 1995 to 2007. Keep in mind that the movie with its symbol of the archer of truth and uprising Katniss also has a symbol of the mockingjay (Mercurial bird) becoming the fiery Phoenix of defiance rebirthed.

Ruler of the chart below, Mercury is posited in the 6th house along separating from Saturn both in ominous and potentially deadly Scorpio. Pluto the dispositor of the messenger is in his natural 8th house opposing Jupiter relating to obscene amounts of money driven by an over active stock and real estate market. Since Jupiter the ruler of the 9th house and this Sagittarian New Moon is in Cancer positioned in the 2nd house of financial affairs, the housing market will continue to ascend. Also this lunation will mark and early winter for the San Francisco Bay Area as a big chill hits to coincide with Mercury entering Sagittarius on December 4th. Speaking of crazy weather shifts by the next Full Moon on December 17th in the last degrees of Gemini, Uranus will station direct and finally that unexpected rain will arrive. In fact on the Winter Solstice (December 21st when the Sun enters Capricorn, Venus will station and move retrograde also in sign of the Seagoat). Venus is a planet connected with moisture and inundation.

As with all new moons and especially this one, newer agendas and novel projects will be announced and initiated since Mercury, the messenger is about to changes signs into Sagittarius (Dec. 4th.) after a long transit in secretive Scorpio. New leaders will also be brought forth at this time. A reminder, since Mars now in Virgo and Mercury in Scorpio are in mutual reception via sextile (exact on Dec. 3rd. @ 8:35 AM ) many events relating to rapid travel and accidents will continue. Solutions to long standing problems could also emerge suddenly since both planets are ready to changes signs as Mars ends a hyper-critical period in Virgo on December 7th. with an ingress into the sign of compromise and justice, Libra.
First we will need to leap tall tales and sensationalized announcements.  We are also starting a new bought severe weather from too much rain in Cuba to a dangerous drop in the thermometer for the San Francisco Bay Area where it will literally freeze by Friday.  As the Sagittarian imagination heats up and explodes on Friday and Saturday's electric Aquarian Moon watch the skies closely.
Remain open to all the prophets but stay grounded whether or not this is the start of the 5th dimensional shift or another Andromeda hoax.

Comet ISON Meets the Sun to be Reborn or Dissolve?


During this wild week dominated by controversy and radical, even radioactive sudden change, Comet ISON has offered more than just a diversion but a chance to experience the wonders of the divine universe. ISON in many ways is reflecting a current fiery trine between the Sun (our identity) in far reaching Sagittarius and the innovative planet Uranus in pioneering Aries. Is Comet ISON, the comet of the century or just a giant snowball that will disintegrate when hit by a CME? With perhilion less than 24 hours away, this comet has captured our imagination and sent out mixed signals regarding his/her fate. Just like here on terra firma, where we may all be a little on edge or confused as tense, historical planetary combinations per geocentric astrology reflect this Comet's transit.

ISON has been a mystery from the beginning as we examine a chart set for September 21, 2012 when ISON was discovered. Astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok discovered ISON in September 2012 using a telescope near Kislovodsk, Russia, that is part of the International Scientific Optical Network. This discovery  time period/chart cast reflects evidence of lots of scientific and detailed observation even a devotional feeling toward this sungrazer with Virgo rising @ 9 degrees alongside Ceres and Vesta. The Sabian Symbol for the ascendant at 9 degrees - "An impressionistic painter making a futuristic drawing." This symbol speaks of the desire to go beyond restricted reality and express in a careful, meticulous way that which is desired for the future not which supposedly valued. The fact that both Vesta and Ceres oppose Chiron and Neptune in Pisces speaks of universal healing and expanded imagination. Perhaps the most striking thing about this chart of ISON's discovery is that Mercury ruler of the chart is opposing Uranus in Aries when freedom of thought can either lead to enlightenment or to eccentric and exaggerated thinking. As we will see both this chart set for September 21st 2012 using Geocentric (earth oriented astrology) and the charts for today's perhileon have Mercury opposing Uranus in cardinal signs. 

According to, Comet ISON will makes it's closest approach to the Sun around 1:45 p.m. EST on Nov. 28th, which is Thanksgiving Day in the USA when gratitude should dominate. With all the anticipation and expectation about ISON's surviving the journey, should we still be thankful, if ISON gets hit by a large CME? CMEs are magnetized clouds of plasma hurled into space by the explosions of sunspot the comet will be little more than a million kilometers above the sun's fiery surface. Temperatures around ISON's icy nucleus could rise as high as 5000o F. No one knows if it can survive that kind of baking. When a Comet passes too close to a planet or sun, the gravitational forces can tear it apart - this is called the Roche Limit. The Roche Limit for comets moving around the sun is 1.49 million miles, and Comet Ison will pass within 1.16 million miles - inside the Roche Limit. Back in 2007, Comet Encke flew too close to the Sun and a solar eruption struck with sudden ferocity to rip it's tail off.

 Just like the discovery chart from back in 2012, Neptune and Mercury are strong leading to divine imagination and uncanny outcomes. If Comet ISON doesn't break up, we could have a spectacular views in December and no reason to worry. If ISON breaks up and spreads out, there are a number of possibilities. . It can lose speed and be pulled into the sun, or some of the pieces may be pulled into the sun while others escape. Escaping objects will probably be slowed due to the sun’s pull and their outbound speed and trajectories will change, increasing the chance of them crossing the Earth's orbit. According to Joel Graves on this theology website, the real problem comes after Ison goes behind the sun and begins its return trip. When would the comet and/or pieces of comet hit the Earth? And where? Joel goes on to discuss Biblical prophecy per Revelations connecting it to the passage of Comets this year. "The first trumpet, Rev 8:7, announces hail and fire mixed with blood and a third of the earth burns up. The hail and fire sound like meteors hitting the earth. This could be a precursor of an inbound asteroid or the effect of our attempt to destroy the asteroid, causing smaller pieces to precede the larger object. Instead of predicting as to what will occur, lets take a lesson from Mercury's geocentric transit in Scorpio which favors the process of thorough investigation.

 In order to do this I have erected a charts set for 1:45 PM EST or 6:45 PM UT for the ISON's perihelion . Lest  we forget Mercury has met Saturn 3 times in the last two months, adding a serious and even pessimistic approach (Mercury stationed to move retrograde on October 21st then direct on November 10th) Mercury won't leave the realm of the underworld, Scorpio till December 4th. With this combination in the sign of death and rebirth, will this comet or messenger be a potent symbol for our own renewal and redemption?  Since Pluto now ruler of Scorpio is in the greatest aspect of most of our lifetimes,  a waxing square which continues till 2015, powerful and secret forces are making their presence known to the human race.

First a chart set for 1:45 PM EST in Washington, DC using Heliocentric configurations (sun centered astrology).   First off Aries is rising (Sun is exalted in Aries and would be the aggressor with Uranus in the first house for an unexpected theme. This chart's ruler, Mars is in solar Leo in the natural house of the Lion, the 5th. @ 21 degrees. The Sabian Symbol is intriguing - "Intoxicated chickens busily flap there wings trying to fly. " Uranus is opposing Mercury in the 7th house which is all about the unconventional from thought to deed. Pluto, the destroyer sits at the top of the chart, an ominous placement and he is opposing Jupiter at the IC. Jupiter, the principle of expansion is literally in a power struggle with Pluto or is it a precursor to an alchemical transformation ready to happen?

Before we look at the next chart set for Universal Time take a minute to see what some experts are saying about ISON's fragments possibly hitting earth. In fact Gareth Williams in the video below says there is no guarantee that Comet ISON will NOT strike Earth!

 The second chart we will examine is set for Universal Time in Greenwhich, UK This chart has Cancer rising at 19 degrees (Sabian A priest performing a marriage ceremony adding a sacred side to the event). On some level there is sacred unity evident in the meeting of ISON with our solar orb. On the geocentric time we have a Venus-Jupiter opposition which is always great for huge celebrations like marriage. Uranus, that perennial trickster and bringer of the outer forces of the universe is at the top of the chart square expansive Jupiter in Cancer in the 12th. Jupiter-Uranus in this alignment speaks of spontaneous, free spirited revolutionary shifts for all of us in the Solar System. Jupiter in the 12th also is about the glory of solitude and merging with the divine. Of course since Jupiter is transiting in Cancer in the earthly geocentric version, gratitude can find a home on this cosmic event.

Sit back and revel in the majesty of this happening accepting that no matter what the outcome expect some amazing transformations. For the best real time images from the SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) spacecraft  click here. Stay tuned for more updates...

Comet ISON Emerges
November 28th. After pronouncing Comet ISON R.I.P. this confusing saga continues to amaze
per the Mercury-Uranus opposition in the Heliocentric charts above.
Per "Comet ISON flew through the sun's atmosphere on Nov. 28th and the encounter did not go well for the icy comet. Just before perihelion (closest approach to the sun) the comet rapidly faded and appeared to disintegrate. This prompted reports of ISON's demise. However, a fraction of the comet might have survived." Click on the image below to see what emerged from Comet ISON's brush with solar fire:

 Fragments of it's former self - a headless comet ala Algol at the last Full Moon?: 
Even CNN jumps on the ISON is Still Alive bandwagon. 
Comet ISON seems to be falling apart as it approaches the sun. Indeed, researchers working with NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory said they saw nothing along the track that ISON was expected to follow through the sun's atmosphere. Nevertheless, something has emerged. Whether this is a small scorched fragment of Comet ISON's nucleus or perhaps a "headless comet"--a stream of debris marking the remains of the comet's disintegrated core--remains to be seen.

Charles Manson Getting Hitched - Resident Evil Seduces Starry-Eyed Innocence Again


November 21st. Gone but not forgotten, the Sun leaves the darker, extreme and usually pessimistic Scorpio for the expanded horizons of the sign of the seven league boots, higher ideals and centaurs, Sagittarius. Yet Since N. Node, Mercury (till Dec. 4th.) and Saturn continue in this sign related to depths, detective activity and the destroyer into 2014, Stories relating to criminals and in this case a killer, who is known for bizarre, eccentric and shocking behavior, may seem like the new normal. After all with Saturn pushing the boundaries of taboos and compulsions in Scorpio forming an ongoing trine with Neptune in fantastical Pisces and Jupiter expanding romance in Cancer - all emotional, water signs whats a psychopath to do? Without question, Charles Manson is the most notorious killer in American history, infamous worldwide for the horrific Tate/LaBianca murders. He's always been America's favorite metaphor for the dark side of the Sixties, the ultimate evil hippie. Remember that back in the sixties Uranus-Pluto conjunct in Virgo transited over Manson's Mars-Neptune conjunction undoubtedly pushed him to a point of insane, megalomania. "Megalomania is characterized by an inflated sense of self-esteem and overestimation by persons of their powers and beliefs."</> A new issue of Rolling Stone takes us deeper into the psyche of a notorious, career criminal and murderer seeking a hookup. Is Charles Manson Getting Married? CConvicted killer's 25-year-old companion Star tells RS, "Charlie is my husband" Charles Manson, perhaps the most infamous convicted killer of all time, is 79 years old and still locked up in California's Corcoran State Prison, where he walks with a cane and sports chipped prison dentures. Star is a 25-year-old brunette who's been loyally visiting Manson in jail since she was 19 years old and maintains several websites devoted to defending Manson and his pro-Earth environmental causes. And according to an astonishingly in-depth new profile by Rolling Stone contributing editor Erik Hedegaard, the pair could be heading down the aisle. Sort of. 

Below I dissect Charlie's natal chart alongside excerpts from the Rolling Stone interview entitled: Charles Manson Today: the Final Confessions of a Psychcopath Charles Manson (born November 12, 1934) as the chart below shows a strong Scorpio personality with Sun-Venus conjunct @ 20 and 19 degrees. Currently he is getting a romantic boost from both Jupiter @ 20 degrees Cancer and Mars (ancient ruler of the Scorpion) @ 21 degrees Virgo. In fact transiting Mars earlier this month crossed over Charlie's sexually magnetic and unconsciously inspired Mars-Neptune conjunction posited in the 5th. house of love affairs and in his case dangerous affairs. Note that with Mars so close to Neptune (known in a more spiritually evolved individual as a the Guardian Angel aspect) but with Manson more like the "Attacking Demon placement. From the Rolling Stone article: "He tilts to one side and says, "I know what you're thinking. Just relax." A while later, he says, "If I can touch you, I can kill you." The real big deal about Manson's horoscope is a potent, dangerous and highly manipulative configuration represented by a Fixed Cross. The cross starts from the Taurus Ascendant to Jupiter-Mercury on the Descendant(the Western Horizon at the time of birth-ruled by the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra and Venus). Crossed by Moon-N. Node at Mid-Heaven opposing Pluto-Ceres-S. Node.

Chart below:

In Manson's natal chart a , fixed, stubborn earthy Taurus is rising with the asteroid of strategy, political activism and in this case a staunch environmental stand, Pallas.(This asteroid Pallas Athene is also Out of Bounds by declination, enhancing his scheming). From the Rolling Stone article: (It wasn't Charlie's murderous reputation that drew her here but his pro-Earth environmental stance, known as ATWA, standing for air, trees, water and animals.) Pallas in Taurus is a highly sensory place which refers to his street wise knowledge Thus the First Arm of the Fixed Cross: His greedy and persistent Taurus ascendant and Pallas oppose Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio which relates to his ethical/moral challenges mixed with obsessive, enigmatic, power-hungry and even occultist leanings. Manson's radical, eccentric Moon-North Node in the sign of the unexpected Aquarius at the top of his chart in the public 10th house Opposes Pluto (last degrees of Cancer and modern ruler of his Scorpio sun on cusp of the 4th. ) In this position near the IC (Imum Coeli or "bottom of the sky") he demonstrates a relentless, radical need for transformation. Ceres is also located in the 4th house (also Out of Bounds ) expressive, theatrical in Leo near the S. Node also in Leo this combo can relate to conflicts of not only meeting his own needs vs. those of the family but also a warped sense of destiny. With Leo intercepted in this fourth house placement, relating to gathering his "family" together, as the nominal head or the clan. Take a closer look at the Manson Family Tree. Venus ruler of this Taurus rising chart as I mentioned is posited in the 7th. where Jupiter represents already represents multiple sexual partners, Venus is closely conjunct the Sun associated with his uncanny power of seduction,sexual addiction and manipulation and passionate entanglements. From the article: Charlie's wife-to-be, but another one of his children, just like Squeaky and Sandy once were, with her just now taking her first little baby steps, him holding her hand and showing the way. At least, that's my perception of how it is. But we all know how perceptions are.
With this misguided affair with Starr, we can only hope that there won't be anymore followers pursuing this evil mentor even though his highly seductive powers still are active.
