Re: Mike's natal chart + events

Now mostly out from under the main SLR and into the demi for this period, which is a welcome change. I instantly felt different this morning – higher energy levels, for one, though perhaps the Jupiter and Uranus transits to my Venus are just heartening me enough to give me a second wind. We'll see w...

Re: Mike's natal chart + events

I don’t think so. I was experiencing that for like 2 weeks leading up to it, and that’s also just a normal part of my psyche (moon-saturn-Neptune). If you removed that hit from the list of quotidians, I would never have missed it. I wonder if there’s some other thematic thing I’m missing that’s Satu...

Re: Mike's natal chart + events

The wedding was a great success. Everything went perfectly, and I even got to work some of my audio chops helping the DJ triage some audio issues (which I consider to be a fun "side quest," though I'm sure it would show differently for him!). I also reconnected quite successfully with a very close f...

It's always challenging for me to fully wrap my head around visualizing the intersections of these measurement planes, but I think I have a grasp on the und...

Quotidian "Equatorial Ascendant" in Longitude

Hey all, Every once in awhile, I see someone make a reference to "Ep/Wp" in a quotidian context, and it's confusing me. So I have some questions: 1. We measure quotidian angle contacts purely in longitude, right? 2. By "Ep/Wp" in this context, are astrologers referring to the "equatorial ascendant/d...

Re: Mike's natal chart + events

So far, so good on this spate of return charts. I've been approaching life trying to own the Saturn energies and learn from them, rather than try to fight it; the main manifestations have been exhaustion (a theme of this last past of my Saturn Return), others emotionally withdrawing and resulting lo...

Very harsh upcoming returns...

I have a brutal series of lunar returns, KLRs, and enneads coming up the rest of this year, with a scant few really lovely ones bunched up in the middle. Normally, I would chalk these up to reflections of seasonal depression, or work being hard, or what have you. But in this case, they're all saying...

Good enough SSR to travel for?

Hi all, I'm taking a look at my upcoming SSR for December, and there's quite a big difference between the SSR if it activates here in Hackensack, vs in Los Angeles (or anywhere thereabouts). Specifically: SSR for Hackensack, NJ: r. Pluto on Dsc +0º55' r. Mars on Dsc -3º11' SSR for LA: t. Moon on Dsc...

Re: My SLR

Or is it just not worth it given how sho...

Hi Hannah :) I am admittedly not very good with astrological career advice - or with regular career advice, for that matter. However, our charts have a few things in common, so I wonder if some of the ideas that I found valuable for me may have some value for you too. What really helped me the most ...

End of my relationship w/ my mother

I've had a bad relationship with my mother for most of my life ("tight Moon-Neptune-Saturn T-square? I'd never have guessed"). She is, in almost every sense, the exact opposite of me, and the visible image of what I don't ever want to become. In other words, I project a lot of shadow content onto he...

While I know my birth data is floating around somewhere, I've never made a dedicated thread for my own horoscope - I've talked about it with others (notably Jim) so many times, in so many places over the last 9 years that I thought it would just be a waste of time. I'm feeling like now would be a go...

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.

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...
