A few moments ago, I was sitting out on the roof of my apartment building. My intention was to bask in the glow of this intriguing Harvest Moon. News articles discuss how uncommon it is to have a Full Moon on a Friday the 13th. Other articles refer to this moon as a Micro-moon. I… Continue reading An Eerie Harvest Mini-Moon
Moving through Beautiful Sky Geometry
In my last post, I showed how the Moon created some interesting Astrology by aspecting a multitude of other planets and points. Afterward, I noticed some other alignments on their way. The amazing part of this is how the Moon is perfectly timed as if in tune with the others. For example, Monday, the First… Continue reading Moving through Beautiful Sky Geometry
Quincunx and the Pythagorean Triangle
There is one configuration that I didn't discuss yesterday, along with the particular underlying aspect that helps create it. I was aware of the configuration, and familiar with the aspect, but hadn't ever looked into it enough to even learn its name. I have decided to use the chart for the exact moment the sun… Continue reading Quincunx and the Pythagorean Triangle
In like a Lion
Yesterday, at 4:01 pm CDT, the sun entered Leo, which simultaneously activated a number of aspects. Studying this chart alone could fill two or three semesters of Astrology. If we focus on the basic red and blue lines, we find 2 oppositions (180o), 3 squares (90o), 5 trines (120o), and 4 sextiles (60o). When we… Continue reading In like a Lion

In my post called Happy 2017!, I mentioned a few bits of information I would like to revisit. At that time, Mercury was still retrograde. In the fourth paragraph, I… Continue reading Astrology Update: February 2017
Virgo Pisces Opposition
In yesterday’s post (Venus and Mars; Dogs and Cats), I discussed the Venus-Mars conjunction. A conjunction occurs when two (or more) planets appear next to each other in the sky from our vantage. They needn’t be anywhere near each other in reality. For example, Venus is still quite close to earth. She just overtook us… Continue reading Virgo Pisces Opposition
Snap is one of those interesting words that sounds like what it means. It is one of many onomatopoeic words. (Class, say that three times... fast!) For a moment, lets think about the sound of snap. The ‘sn’ can be elongated for effect, and is a constant and even flow of sound. At the ‘a’,… Continue reading Snap
Is it Time to Soar?
Since it's Mother's Day, let's take this approach. If you are in labor right now, and give birth to a baby boy or girl around midnight CDT, then your child will have a very intriguing birth chart. Tonight, among other things, we will see a kite form in the sky to within one degree of… Continue reading Is it Time to Soar?
[This is part 3 of 3 - so far...] Good morning star gazers and Moon lovers! Anyone get up before dawn to see the Full Moon shining in the western sky? How about last night when the Moon rose before sunset and glowed brightly against the blue sky? Today’s Full Moon is called the Egg… Continue reading Cornered Lunacy
