Essentially no vision in that one eye for one to three weeks.

It seems this SLR has come out thematically as expected, but with the details all different. I haven't had the surgery yet because I developed an idiopathic flare-up in the left eye (anterior uveitis) which caused it to be delayed. This condition is basically caused by nothing in particular, or nothing we're ever likely to know - it's idiopathic and, beyond immediate symptoms, harmless - and characterized by a slight build-up of white blood on the back of the iris causing symptoms similar to conjunctivitis (surface burning, the eye feeling a little bruised, unusual sensitivity to light). It's under control now (more or less gone), I just have to continue tapering off the steroid eye drops for the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, it postponed the surgery. (The one disadvantage of waiting for this to heal is that my insurance deductible is met until December 31, then I go back to out-of-pocket for a while, but not for long: the surgery, when it occurs will more than meet the deductible.)

Pretty much all of this is in the SLR. The essentials are all there, just not the details working the same way.

Friday is my next SLR and it's rather intent. I'll start a new tread on it. My only concern is that it comes just as I'm going to a doctor for some routine tests that I expect to be negative (trying to get all the little diagnostic things in that I can before the end of the month for insurance advantage).

SLR 15 Dec 2018

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Dec 12, 2018 3:38 pm

The new SLR occurs December 15, 2018, 1:44:44 AM PST at my home in LA.

t Pluto on IC +0°09'
r Sun on Asc +0°55'
-- t Pluto sq. r Sun 0°46' in mundo
-- t Venus-Pluto sq. 1°24' PVP
-- surely t Venus sq. r Sun PVP (but not easily able to calculate orb)
r Mars on IC -4°08'
r Neptune on Asc -7°27'
r Uranus on MC -8°18
r Jupiter on MC -8°33'
-- r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°15' in mundo
-- r Uranus-Neptune sq. 0°51' in mundo
-- r Jupiter-Neptune sq. 1°05' in mundo
-- r Mars-Neptune sq. 2°25'
-- r Mars-Uranus op. 4°10' in mundo
-- r Mars-Jupiter op. 4°25' in mundo

t Moon-Mars conj. 3°32' (background)
t Uranus sq. r Jupiter 0°12'
t Uranus sq. r Uranus 0°29'
t Sun sq. r Moon 0°57'


Trimming out the larger orbed items as, at the very least, not representing the primary themes, we get:

t Pluto on IC +0°09'
r Sun on Asc +0°55'
-- t Pluto sq. r Sun 0°46' in mundo
-- t Venus-Pluto sq. 1°24' PVP
-- t Venus sq. r Sun PVP
r Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune more widely angular
-- r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°15' in mundo
-- r Uranus-Neptune sq. 0°51' in mundo
-- r Jupiter-Neptune sq. 1°05' in mundo
-- r Mars-Neptune sq. 2°25'

t Uranus sq. r Jupiter 0°12'
t Uranus sq. r Uranus 0°29'
t Sun sq. r Moon 0°57'

It appears things are happening to at least delay the eye surgery you need. Keep us informed.

The main part of this chart might be summarized as "existential confrontation" - the Pluto-Sun exactly on the angle. The night this set up, we had a small taste of this by coming home to think that, somehow, inexplicably, our cat Kali was missing (only possible by, say, someone in building management coming in and her getting out, both of which were unlikely). We spent half an hour traipsing around the neighborhood at 2 AM, greatly concerned and worried, and eventually returned to find her here. It seems something had spooked her badly while we were out and (against all character) she stayed hidden even when we arrived home.

That was the warm-up. At 6:10 PM tonight I got phase 2. I wouldn't mention it at all except for the sake of learning from SLRs like this. It's premature to give details, but the part that refers to the SLR is this: A totally routine medical test a year ago was completely normal and this year was a little out of bounds. A specialist reran it, and it was even higher, and ran a more subtle test that went the opposite direction we'd like. This is still early in diagnosis: the next step is another diagnostic procedure that will happen in the next 30-60 days. Odds remain against it being anything truly serious, though perhaps about even of it being something minor and correctible.

So, at the moment, all I have from it is (1) appointments to schedule and (2) knowing there is a possibility of something serious. Run the chart for 6:10 PM at my residence and note Ascendant contact to my Sun, transiting Sun on my IC, Pluto setting, and transiting Moon partile opposite my Saturn (a Moon-Venus opposition on my Saturn). It's somber but not distressed (since I know some of you would want to know how distressed I might be).

Anyway... if I haven't mentioned it before... existential confrontation is a fine Sun-Pluto key phrase.
