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

Design and Implementation

In thirty days—on September 17, 2015 at 9:49 pm CDT—Saturn will ingress the sign of Sagittarius, where it will remain until December 19, 2017. Less than nine hours before that happens, Mercury will station retrograde at 15 Libra 55. Noticing this synchronicity, I decided to explore the Gemini and Virgo perspectives of this event. That’s when… Continue reading Design and Implementation

Dogs and Cats

The Dog Days of Summer are just about over—at least unofficially. What are officially over (at 6:01 pm CDT this evening) are the lazy, loungy, fixed-fire days of Leo. The term “Dog Days” come from an association with the rising of Sirius within the Canis Major (“big dog”) constellation. Had a different person been looking… Continue reading Dogs and Cats

A Question of Identity

As you may know, Mercury stations direct on Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 3:04 CDT. This occurs at 5 degrees 38 arc-minutes Pisces. As a result of the activity surrounding me, I realized something today. This Mercury station makes nearly an exact square to my natal sun (at 5 degrees 24 arc-minutes Gemini). Within the… Continue reading A Question of Identity
