Minor Planet Sedna

Posted by on 9:07 am in Asteroids, Astrology Articles | 79 comments

Minor Planet Sedna

Sedna was discovered in 2003. The planets discovery has only been possible because right now it’s at perihelion (closest to the Sun). Eris was actually discovered after Sedna even though it is nearer to us, so until 2005 Sedna was also actually considered a candidate for the 10th planet. This missing 10th planet has always been a suitable hook for missing Dark Goddess archetype in astrology and the exiled feminine which is why both Eris and Sedna both resonate with the Persephone myth. They also both carry themes of resurrection from...

Gemini Decan 1

Gemini Decan 1 is ruled by Jupiter and Mercury of the Gemini triplicity. The sun crusades through the constellations of Taurus the Bull, Perseus the Hero, the Sculptors Chisel and the River from May 21 to 31. This section of the sky houses the famous star clusters the Hyades, the Pleiades, and royal star Aldebaran in the Bull’s eye. These clusters have stormy reputations, Alcyone is scandalous in love and the Hyades bring tears and violence. Perseus is not the most sedate fellow either, brandishing his sword and grasping poor Medusa’s...

2nd Full Moon in July 2015

The Full Moon July 31 is at 7º Aquarius in Aquarius Decan 1 Mad Professors & Visionary Upgraders. Rulers: Venus & Saturn Deity: Dike. (Spirit of moral order.) This Full Moon is a visionary, forever chasing new horizons. As it hovers above the clouds, the Moon is free to catch an innovative idea from the ether. It works like an antenna, picking up insights brewing in the collective consciousness. This is a futuristic Moon at the cutting edge of change. It can see far into the distance, but finds it quite difficult to live in the here...

Venus Retrograde July 2015

Venus Retrograde July 2015

The 2015 Venus retrograde runs from Jul 25 until Sep 6. This is usually lasts about forty days and forty nights. Forty is mentioned in the bible often, but most famously when Jesus was tempted by Satan in the wilderness for forty days. Could this be referring to the astrological phenomena of Venus retrograde? After all, Venus has two sides to her. She is the goddess of love and war according to the Babylonians. The word Lucifer (which is often confused with Satan) means light-bringer and refers to Venus in her morning star phase. The ancients...

Taurus Decan 3

Posted by on 8:03 am in Astrology Articles, Decans | 28 comments

Taurus Decan 3

Taurus decan 3 is ruled by Saturn and is the Capricorn decan of Taurus. The sun twists and turns through the constellations of the Ram, the River, Perseus the hero, Queen Cassiopeia, Medusa’s head and some of the Pleiades from May 11 to 20. It is appropriate that the dark lord of time Saturn rules this decan since it also contains the infamous star Algol. This part of Taurus is home to bohemians and temperamental, artistic types due to it being jam-packed with so many challenging/volatile/inspiring stars. Most of these stars are extremely...

Greek Crisis & Referendum

Greek Crisis & Referendum

On July 5 Greece will vote wether to accept EU imposed austerity measures or not. I don’t usually write mundane astrology posts, but I feel moved to look into the current Greece debt crisis having only just returned from my third visit there. At the time of writing, banks are closed indefinitely and Greek citizens can only withdraw 60 euros a day from cash machines. If the Greeks say ‘Yes’, then the current radical left wing PM, Alexis Tspiras says he will stand down. Like his party, this is a radical move. There is the...

New Moon July 2015

The New Moon July 16 is at 23º Cancer and falls in Cancer Decan 3 Giddy Artists & Mood Swings. Rulers: Moon & Jupiter. Deity: Hecate (Goddess Of Crossroads & Witchcraft). With this New Moon we are dealing with polarities; Good and evil, the living and the dead, left-brain and right-brain, lunar and solar. The imagination is very strong here with the ability to capture it and put it into words. We swing between optimism, looking at the bright side of life and then to exploring the seedy side, the shadow and what is deemed...

Regulus

Regulus

Regal Regulus has the honor of being the closest star to the ecliptic and therefore closest to the red carpet path of the glorious Sun. Regulus is a triple 1.3 magnitude star that flashes white and ultramarine. It is found, naturally, in the brave heart of the constellation Leo the Lion. When I first wrote this post in early 2011, Regulus was still at 29º 59′ of Leo and I hadn’t considered the fact it was about to move into Virgo. Now I have rewritten this post bearing this move in mind and adding more examples of subjects with...

This Full Moon has a strong and honorable work-ethic and is so religiously dedicated to whatever path it chooses in life, that every business deal it makes is sacrosanct. Everything with this Moons is a crusade, no matter how run-of-the-mill. The piercing arrow of this archer Full Moon throws a very astute symbolic shot to the heart of the matter. 19th Lunar...

Taurus decan 2

Taurus decan 2

Taurus decan 2 are ruled by the Moon and Mercury. The Sun soldiers through the constellations of the River, the Queen, the Chained Princess, the Triangle, the Sea Monster and the Clock from May 1 to May 10.  These bulls are tenacious and ambitious; they rise to the top through sheer determination, patience and stamina. Taurus decan 2 is mild mannered, an ace seducer and extremely persuasive. Taurus rules the throat so these folk can be powerful orators or singers. Their speech is a potent tool for propaganda and spin-doctoring thanks to the...
