Re: Mars in Taurus sign project

I wish I had more friends with Mars in Taurus, but I only have one. As such, I can't make especially strong statements, but I'll try to make some statements. She's an Aquarius/Taurus. The remarks about artistic profession are strikingly accurate - she is a professional in the field I left, live A/V ...

Re: Aspects vrs. Angularity

The way I think of it - a particular night can go dramatically differently for you if you are in one town or the next one over. That's only a 15-20 minute drive or something like that. How different, then, is the nature of a particular time and place when you go 100 miles away from some reference lo...

Re: Reconsidering SLR Technique

I've been wondering lately if the natal aspects show the "hidden" or "inner" things going on in lunar returns such as this - sort of like how Jim theorized elsewhere that the IC, as an angle in natal charts, wasn't inherently weaker so much as it was just "private" and therefore less obvious from th...

So, on Saturday night (April 20th 2019), my car broke down - a day after I had brought it to the mechanic to try to, you know, prevent it from breaking down. This was after a week of increasingly weird engine noise. I should note, just since this is 4/20 we're talking about, that I was completely so...

Re: Reconsidering SLR Technique

My brand new SLR for Hackensack, NJ (as of April 18th 2019), is another great opportunity to examine how natal planets foreground in SLRs work in the absence of important transiting factors. The only angular planets in the chart at all, and their aspects, are: r. Mars on MC -0*32' r. Venus on Asc +3...

Re: Reconsidering SLR Technique

See if you can find examples where a natal planet is closely angular and NO transit to it within 3-5°. I'm finding these are quite rare. Mostly, the few I've found look like the natal planet is inoperative. - The starkest exception I've found is Richard Speck for his murders under an SLR with only ...

Re: Surprisingly weak Saturn transit to Mars

Events are the universe's emergency method to compel one to have a particular kind of experience or make a particular kind of inner shift. I was considering this.

Re: I cannot go to many lands

Saturn and Pluto are angular for you at longitudes in between India and Iran, broadly speaking. I wouldn't go anywhere near that; that entire longitudinal slice of the world looks quite unpleasant for you. Your Jupiter-Uranus conjunction is foreground at the longitude near central China and for pret...

Surprisingly weak Saturn transit to Mars

I just under went a Saturn semisquare to natal Mars that I've been dreading for the past few months - it was exact on Feb 25 2019. Honestly, it felt like essentially nothing happened - although I'm aware it will make another 2 passes later on this year. The themes of struggle against control, compet...

Hi all, I'm planning ahead for when I eventually relocate (next few years probably). I want to move to the west coast where my natal Venus is foreground. (It's background here.) That's the primary goal. In Los Angeles, Venus is foreground by itself, 1*55' above Descendant, and I get a Mercury conjun...

But when they operate it seems clear that natal planets are important in every technique - it's the one set you never get rid of.
Wow, even for KLRs?
Using them in that context didn't occur to me.

Natal planets in Anlunars

Hi y'all,

Is it recommended to check the natal planets relative to Anlunar return angles, or do we only check transiting + solar planets?
If I had to guess, I would guess only solar planets, but I'd rather ask.

Re: Connection through signs due to anti-thesis

Do or can anti-thesis(es) of our charts drive us to feel closer to signs that are activated [luminary, Mars, or stellium] and share a common anti-thesis? If so is it even worth noting? I think of this stuff in terms of presence/absence, which seems like a similar concept. For example, with Venus ba...
