'Buckwheat Harvesters', 1888 Émile Bernard {{PD}}

‘Buckwheat Harvesters’, 1888 Émile Bernard {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: This is the story of how we’ll get what we’ve worked for and honored, and those in authority will just have to adjust to what we receive. The rewards, however, may be surreptitious, hidden in something dark or of lesser worth, even found in something others have discarded or rejected. A flowering of love may be what’s given us, and we may not at first see how much we deserve this–but we do. At the same time, ambition fulfillment is on everyone’s mind, but we’ll have a rough time visualizing what we want, because the light of what is (a light that is shining on exactly why we have earned the things we have) will be very bright; just make sure to take note of whatever good thing comes your way, Love, laughter, admiration, cooperation, even cash, that wasn’t there before (Venus trine Vesta, parallel Saturn, and qnx Ceres, Mercury conjoined Zeus, Sun sesq Neptune)

Loop the Loop, Coney Island (1903) {{PD}}

Today’s word image is a roller coaster. Aside from the obvious symbolism of whip-lashy experiences, what does this thing mean to you? Do you love them, hate them, or are you indifferent? I used to love them, and now don’t care for them, so the image makes me think: What is it that we once adored, that now we’d rather never experience again? This points to changing tastes, and possibly some re-defining of our own Self-image, as well as a recognition of the world’s current, disorienting state.

For those born with the Sun at 25 Libra: It’s funny–odd funny, not funny ha-ha–that there’s a crisis in either Love or Money in your life, and yet your attention is anywhere but there! You seem much more concerned with following your own instincts to see where they might lead, and in digging into your own psyche for treasure. Well now it’s time for you to see: one or more of the relationships or sources of ‘flow’ you’ve come to take for granted is in danger of disappearing–wake up and do something about it. It may not be readily apparent, and it may take the entire year to your next birthday to play out–but forewarned, as the say. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!

16 October 2016 Loyalties, and What’s Sacred

The AstroEssence: Are we butting heads with authorities, with Mom, with Mother Nature, or in negotiations over what’s sacred to us? And if we are, what does that say about our loyalties and priorities? What we honor is tested from without by forces that would compel us, and we need to parse out how important it really is for us to maintain our commitments. We have a chance to see whether our sacred investments are truly worthwhile–and whether those who challenge us are truly worth maintaining a relationship with. In fact, relationships and values offer inspiration and a spark of genius to us that aids in ambition fulfillment–it’s like interactions show us things in a new and creative way–and we should take action, but with great care, so we don’t Self-sabotage along the way (Vesta sq Ceres, Venus nov Zeus and semi-sq Mars)



Today’s word image is an egg. We’ve had this symbol before–but this time it’s hard-boiled. I think this is about some potential that has hardened into some sort of perpetual beginning–it’s something we may need to realize is never going to become anything more than it is–so that perhaps we need to stop hoping it will hatch, and turn our attention to something that will.

For those born with the Sun at 24 Libra: Energy expression may be oddly split for you this coming year, Libra, with some going toward establishing yourself and getting what you want, and some going toward purely pleasurable pursuits and/ or the accumulation of goods. These aren’t necessarily incompatible goals, but it will be important that you find a way to meld your Will and your need to feel ‘in charge’ (at least of yourself) with a genuine desire for comfort and sensual gratification. If you don’t figure out how to combine them, you may spend a lot of time feeling frustrated and then zoning out. Use your creativity, and listen to your instincts and those things you know deep inside to be true, and you’ll do just fine. Good luck, and Happy Birthday!

15 October 2016 Full Moon, Full Plate



, , , , , , , , ,

By Émile Friant - {{PD}}

‘The Boating Party’ or ‘Reunion of the Meurthe Boating Party’, by Émile Friant – {{PD}}

The Lunar Essence: With the Full Moon in Aries at 23 Aries 14 occurring at 9:23 PM Pacific daylight time, we see the threesome of Earth-Moon-Uranus in a less than one degree span opposed the Libra Sun, which is sesquiquadrate Neptune. The Full Moon itself of course forms a semi-square to Neptune, and is as stated conjoined Uranus and widely conjoined Ceres, the latter of which sits at 29 degrees of the Moon’s sign, adding stress through the actions of Nature or authorities. The Full Moon is also quincunx Juno, and makes a wide square to Vesta, which we should count as the swift-moving Moon races toward, rather than away from, aspect completion, with this square creating a T-square with the Sun/ Earth-Moon-Uranus axis (but even more closely aspecting Ceres, as both Vesta and Ceres sit at 29 degrees), adding even more stress. It’s notable, too, that this Sun is also parallel both Juno and Neptune, suggesting that just observing, just seeing (the light of the Sun) can empower and make the dream, whatever that may be for the individual, a very realistic possibility.

full-moon-in-aries-october-2016So what do we get from this Full Moon? Why stress, of course! But from what source? We reach a peak of involvement with, rejection of, rebellion from, or original and innovative cooperation with ‘the group’, and this brings us to a point of ‘energy crisis’ in terms of our own power and authority, our priorities and those things we honor, and with how closely the results align with what we imagine is ideal, as well as how we feel about this resulting real-world arrangement. It’s a point of radical enlightenment, as we see quite clearly the personal power situation and the role we can play in the larger scenario, and these are revealed within the microcosm of a single interactive situation; we assess this real-life situation, and see beyond it (into the Uranian future, if you will) to what larger role we can play, title we can claim, or area where we can accomplish.

There are both stresses that are not under our conscious control, such as Mother Nature, exerting herself through things like weather and our own biology, and stresses within areas where we have exerted ourselves, tried to gain empowerment or authority, tried to commit to those matters that are most important to us. The Vestal energies of dedication, commitment, and the sacred must resolve against those Ceres energies of power expression, authority, and knowing and controlling our ‘domain’, and this is done through Ceres’ own mechanism of negotiation, an internal discussion that happens within the individual psyche that is acted out in real-world arenas. We see what adjustments, compromises, and alterations are required for ‘the dream’ to become reality, with the light of the Full Moon showing us exactly where and how we are empowered to make it happen.

Wiosna w Gościeradzu (Spring in Gościeradz) by Leon Wyczółkowski {{PD}}

The Sabian for the Full Moon is, ‘Blown Inward By The Wind, The Curtains Of An Open Window Take The Shape Of A Cornucopia’. The FM event ‘opens a window’ that is either a time period of opportunity, or an ability to both see our goals clearly, and to know what the ‘fruits’ of our current direction will actually be, the latter allowing us to make needed adjustments to our actions and choices. The FM offers either feedback that illuminates our own effectiveness and true course, or the chance to make things happen, if we’ll only take the steps, or modify our path, a chance to affect things that didn’t exist until now.

'Butterflies', Wilhelm von Kaulbach, c1860 {{PD}}

‘Butterflies’, Wilhelm von Kaulbach, c1860 {{PD}}

We always look at the Sun for a Full Moon, as the source of the Full Moon’s light. ‘A Butterfly With A Third Wing On Its Left Side’ suggests nothing so much as fulfillment; that is, the result of what has incubated and emerged, now fully ready, developed, that holds all the promise invested in its preparation–and a third wing simply implies a resource, a kind of existential aid, akin to the Third Eye: there is something extra, unplanned but propitious, that offers information or assistance specifically useful to our goals. Lucky us, right?

The AstroEssence: There are only a few other influences at play for the 15th, and these may have us spending the time leading up to the Full Moon with our attention in places other than those that will be illuminated with the Lunar culmination. One is the way we might be weighing methods of healing against our own wounds, judging physical as well as mental and emotional situations for how healthy they might be; it’s an attempt to concentrate on hurts, to deal with them, but perhaps not to totally embrace what we know to be the healthy option. We’re trying to justify holding on to our wounds. It’s our thinking that’s encouraging the problem: we are obsessed with the dark, with how we’ve been wronged, with how others hold power over us, and in continuing to nurse our hurts it’s taking a (Self) destructive turn. Fortunately, though, what we’ll actually choose to do will be done with an eye to building the future–it’s just that we may not see how much better the future could be, if we could forgive, heal, let go (Chiron sesq Hygeia, Mercury sq Pluto, Mars trine NN)

For those born with the Sun at 23 Libra: It’s all about taking what’s new, modern, original in your world and making the most of it. The sudden, the surprising, the heartfelt facilitates accomplishment, and the smart move is to embrace them. The only thing we can count on is change, right? Oh, and death and taxes. But, this coming year should be more than a little positive and profitable for you, Libra, just as long as you conquer that crisis in confidence, and realize you can’t rule unless you’re willing to claim your territory. Good luck, and Happy Birthday!

14 October 2016 Fanciful or Inspired?



, , , , ,

'Cranes in Dunes' Friedrich Lissmann 1910 {{PD}}

‘Cranes in Dunes’ Friedrich Lissmann 1910 {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: our ideas of our own empowerment may be inspired or fanciful, but in either case we hatch a genius creative approach that’s a bit off the beaten path; whether we’re successful with this or not depends almost entirely on two things: are we connected to instincts and at least peripherally aware of our own motivations? and how willing are we to heal what hurts in order to go forward? If we’re too attached to the past, we may not want to let go of wounds that have become a part of our identity, but if we can focus our energy and attention on the present, real-world situation, we’ll find the unique plan or approach that will allow effective empowerment, and so gain the Love, Money, or status we’ve been seeking (Juno receives a parallel from Neptune, a nov from Merc, and a qnx from Uranus, Venus opp Sedna, Mercury sxt Saturn and qnx SN, Sun qnx Chiron and nov NN)

Today’s word image is a crane. Did you see a tall, slender white bird, or a big piece of construction equipment? If the image that popped into your mind was the bird, then today instincts are strong, your connection to Nature is dynamic, and you can trust your inner compass; if you saw a construction crane, you may be too busy moving the pieces of the puzzle around to appreciate the bigger picture they make.

For those born with the Sun at 22 Libra: It seems you are quietly sussing out the best avenues leading to empowerment and gaining the status you seek, and you appear to be doing this while you distract others with erratic, rebellious, or original behaviors or constructions–so, with that kind of focused effort and skillful subterfuge going on, why are you still feeling uncertain? It’s your stressed relationship to authorities, Mom, or Nature itself, all of which require acknowledgment of the power of others to affect your world. Denial of their strength doesn’t improve yours; you’d do best to note the ways you can offer cooperation that will get you a lot closer to, or a lot more of, what you want. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!

13 October 2016 Aggressive Words



, , , , ,

'Whispering Sound' by Mizuno Toshikata, 1900 {{PD}}

‘Whispering Sound’ by Mizuno Toshikata, 1900 {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: Not just words, of course, but all communications, the symbolic, the non-verbal, the emotional, and the ripples that undulate through the Collective, all carry an aggressive edge. This may be good, in the case of those who need to assert their rights, stand up for themselves, or must be spurred to act, but too often Willfulness and ‘I Want’ dress up as righteous Self-defense and come to the party–meaning that aggressive people use the atmosphere as a cover for continued attack. The way to tell whether you are actually asserting yourself or just being a selfish grabber? Oddly enough, if you find yourself thinking about aggressing, about speaking up, declaring, or demanding, mulling it over or planning it, then it’s not a good idea–it’s the mind justifying the ego, just an excuse for going after your goals with no concern for others. Luckily, today just happens to be one of those days when true instinct brings a good balance in assertion vs. receptivity–and if you’re not sure if that’s instinct whispering in your ear, then get out into Nature–she, more than anything else, will serve to re-connect you to your inborn ‘knowing’ and to re-align you with the greater rhythms of the Cosmos (Ceres enters Taurus, Chiron contra-parallel Pallas, Fist of God with Mars sq Mercury, both sesq Sedna)

Today’s word image is a glass eye. This is something that isn’t actually needed, it’s only used to make others more at ease when mixing with an individual who’s missing an eye. Do you have a ‘glass eye’ within the personality, something that serves no purpose other than to make it easier to get along with others, to be accepted by them? Have you tried recently to mingle without it? It may be time to put away one or more artificial aids to social interaction and just be ourselves.

For those born with the Sun at 21 Libra: Most of your year may be taken up with low-key, behind-the-scenes preparation, with a big reveal for the finished ‘product’ slated for the (fairly near) future. Do you know what project or effort I’m referring to? If you do, buckle down and get to work; if you don’t, it’s the eleventh hour, so don’t waste anymore time: take steps to make that long-contemplated work a reality. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!

12 October 2016 The Genius of What’s Contrary

'After the Misdeed' What, oh what, could it be? c1885 by Jean Béraud {{PD}}

‘After the Misdeed’ What, oh what, could it be? c1885 by Jean Béraud {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: It’s a contrary day where we achieve our ends in round about or backward ways. We do this by: finding the empowerment in a hurtful situation or healing some facet of our effectiveness to 100%; ignoring nature, authorities, or the need to negotiate and in doing so finding something of value we normally would see as contrary to our standards; and noticing how exaggeration tells us exactly what the real message is. Imagination doesn’t serve us right now–it may only confuse communications and distort creative ideas–but if we draw our inspiration from solid, material matters, things that fill our environment or that we can hold in our hands, we’ll find a kind of genius to what they inspire in us (Chiron trine Juno and contra-parallel Ceres, Venus contra-parallel Vesta, Mercury parallel Jupiter and qnx Neptune, Earth nov Neptune)

Today’s word image is something blue. Let the color be a marker that draws attention back to the present, and tunes awareness to that moment, again and again throughout the day.

'The Caucasus'  Ivan Constantinovich Aivasovsky 1862 {{PD}}

‘The Caucasus’ Ivan Constantinovich Aivasovsky 1862 {{PD}}

For those born with the Sun at 20 Libra: Healing is on this year’s agenda, Libra, but only if you are willing to modify your own attitude enough to forgive. It’s your own rebellious nature that’s kept things from becoming whole again, and it’s time you see that, rather than thinking it’s the stubbornness of others keeping you apart. This healing thing is such a big deal, in fact, that opening yourself to this will bring a sensitivity, emotional creativity, and spiritual attunement beyond anything you’ve ever expected. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!


11 October 2016 Big Ideas, Inspired Action



, , , , ,

"Canaries" Albert Joseph Moore c1880 {{PD}}

“Canaries” Albert Joseph Moore c1880 {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: It’s big ideas and inspired action if you’re acting from healed sensibilities and not reacting out of rebellious or separatist sentiments; if pique or contrariness are what drives you, you may end up with bloated plans and unrealistic ideas of what to do to make them happen–so a disaster all around. Hint to handle things: pay attention to what’s obviously smart, which will likely be right in front of you, and don’t rely upon instincts at this point–they may be muddled or masked, not offering the clarity you need–tune in to reality, through an optimistic lens, instead (Mercury conj Jupiter, Mars sxt Neptune, Sun trine Pallas and contra-parallel Sedna, Venus qnx Uranus, semi-sq Jupiter, and trine Chiron)

Today’s word image is one of those old wax ‘records’ that first recorded sound. Phonograph cylinders were delicate, sometimes wearing out in as few as twenty playings. You may be dealing with ‘early impressions’ of something; the question may be, are those impressions worn out, in need of a fresh take? Or is this a prompt to be extra careful with that memory, making sure you do nothing in the present to ruin it?

For those born with the Sun at 19 Libra: You may start the year with a certain emotional harmony that could make you overconfident, in the sense that the unexpected could overtake you before you realize it’s even possible. That’s not to frighten you, Libra, but to remind you that to expect to glide along isn’t realistic; instead, be ever-willing to adjust in order to heal–if you do you’ll be in a really good place by your next birthday. Good luck, and Happy Birthday, Libra!

10 October 2016 The Ambition Picture

Le Pont de l’Europe (1876) Gustave Caillebotte {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: Our focus is on our own ambitions and desires; the identity and Soul intent is also aligned with our wants, and this makes for the ability to get what we are seeking in short order. Thinking and planning are inspired by those matters that previously we ignored, were in denial of, or that enraged us–somehow they show us things from a new angle when re-examined–and that helps us align our goals and desires with authorities who can help or with our own best expressions of power–and that makes it all happen. It’s a day for ambition fulfillment, no question–though if things aren’t lining up and materializing as you’d like, it may be because you’re not sufficiently Self-responsible, doing all you can to maximize this highly positive effect (Mercury nov Black Moon Lilith and parallel Ceres, Sun conjoined and parallel Zeus)

'A Cup of Tea' Lilla Cabot Perry {{PD}}

‘A Cup of Tea’ Lilla Cabot Perry {{PD}}

Today’s word image is the discovery upon filling that a beautiful tea pot is laced with cracks.What’s your immediate reaction to this? Are you angry, sad that the piece has been spoiled, do you want to dash it to bits as useless, or carefully break it for a mosaic, plant it with herbs, keep your pennies there, use it as part of a fountain, or make a tiny birdhouse out of it? This is about viewpoint, and giving things a second life, or a usefulness, beyond the initial intention for them–it requires a willingness to allow something (or even someone) a role for which they weren’t necessarily originally intended.

For those born with the Sun at 18 Libra: You’ve recently transcended some ambition or desire, either achieving your goals or finding them no longer to your liking, and now you may be wondering, What’s next? It appears that what may come next is healing, a slow accretion of experiences the ultimate result of which is spiritual wholeness. That’s pretty good–plus, when that spiritual healing is complete, you may be rewarded with a little Love, Money, or Power. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!

The AstroEssence: Saturday’s the day we’ve got it going on, and Sunday’s the day when we meet (and reassess) the results of all those Saturday choices. Initially we’ll be impulsive, spontaneously inspired, and hooked in to instincts; at the same time we’ll be immersed in a perverse inclination to de-value what’s smart, argue with what we’ve learned from the past, disbelieve what issues we’ve ignored or denied are telling us, and engage in hurtful communications, in one form or another. By Sunday we try to sort it out, and there are a few guidelines: the reality picture just won’t reflect your actual values, so don’t try to make them match, and don’t take your cue from what’s in front of you–what you honor should be your guide; you can’t rely on what others tell you, or what you yourself hear or think–so just don’t count on your mind as reliable–but, and it’s a big one, if you can align thinking with what is indisputably the wise choice or option, things can work out a-okay (Saturday: Vesta sesq SN, Uranus contra-parallel Juno, Venus sq Pallas, Mercury parallel Chiron and contra-parallel Ceres, Earth qnx Black Moon Lilith and nov Sedna; Sunday: Saturn sesq Vesta, Mercury sesq and parallel Pallas)



Saturday’s word image is a drake, a male mallard duck, with his iridescent green head and neck, black and white neck rings, soft gray body and brown vest. He’s a beauty, especially next to the more modestly colored female–but there’s a good reason for her camouflage (protecting her babies) and a good reason for his flash (to attract the ladies). Sometimes we don’t realize that the flash or modesty we see in others is just natural to them, and that they have good reasons for putting themselves forward, or hanging out in the shadows–try not to judge them for it.

For those born with the Sun at 16 Libra: This year it may feel as if you are sneaking up on your ambitions and desires–and really, this is the time to do all the preparation, positioning, and networking necessary to put you in just the right spot–because sometime in the year following your next birthday, you will be handed the chance to have, attain, or accomplish exactly what you’re aiming for–and your job now is to get ready. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!

Sunday’s word image is a Commodore 64. Yes, an antique! We may encounter things when they’re brand-spankin’ new, and not realize that as time passes they are not just no longer current, they are so outdated that they can’t interact with the current scene. Look around for something in your world that needs updating, in spite of it still doing the job–it’s not a bad thing to improve functions and effectiveness, and relegate something rather creaky to fond memory–and that goes for personalities, goals, skills, and relationships, too.

For those born with the Sun at 17 Libra: You are your ambitions and desires this year, Libra, and you let them show through the personality. This can be very very good, if you have a winning way about you and have done the necessary prep to meet your goals, or could come across more like a crazed Cookie Monster, if you simply go after what you want without giving it much forethought. You can see which of those is better, as in more effective, right? Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!


7 October 2016 Power Vs. Wisdom

You remember this, right? The Mock Battle between the Weaver's and Dyer's Guilds on the Arno in Florence on 25 July 1619 {{PD}}

You remember this, right? The Mock Battle between the Weaver’s and Dyer’s Guilds on the Arno in Florence on 25 July 1619 {{PD}}

The AstroEssence: Oh, I hope it doesn’t shake out like this: where power and authority in all forms resists wisdom and practicality (the latter two a Self-declared state). The power side may present the current situation as a ‘now and forever’ sort of arrangement, set in stone, while the wisdom side of things may be a little too smug in its assessment of itself as diplomatic and fair, sure that it can ‘sweet talk’ authorities, distorting what’s wise in favor of what is desired; that is, neither side will be looking at things in a truly realistic light. To pretend that what exists now or what rules are in place will never change is madness–but so is the idea that if you just say it nicely, everyone must do as you want! To believe one can out-think or out-maneuver the powers that be is pure hubris, as is the idea that false modesty or words of cooperation somehow buy one carte blanche, and stonewalling those who seek smart change is unreasonablebossiness and stubbornness are just what they are, whether they’re dressed up in diplomacy or justified with regulations. What we all have to do is admit that power (which is nothing more than being effective within one’s own life) is on our minds; everyone in denial of this will encounter a variety of obstacles, a rough social milieu, and/ or risk having something secret or enraging exposed. Those who accept their need for power take the first step toward (relatively speaking) control of reality. An even better approach: refuse to break everything down into dualities–that’s how this whole split-vision got started in the first place (Pallas contra-parallel Ceres, Saturn sq the Nodes, Merc enters Libra and perfects contra-parallel Jupiter, qnx Ceres, semi-sq Black Moon Lilith, Pluto sq the Sun-Earth axis)

Salmon Fishing on the 'Faskally Water' from Ernest E. Briggs, (1908) Angling and Art in Scotland {{PD}}

Salmon Fishing on the ‘Faskally Water’ from Ernest E. Briggs, (1908) Angling and Art in Scotland {{PD}}

Today’s word image is a man fly-fishing in a shallow, quick-moving mountain river. Does this create personal associations for you? If so, go with those. For everyone else, we might consider that we’re seeking something in a place where it logically will be found, but that is, in one sense or another, ‘shallow’, possibly in an emotional sense, or in emotional reaction to a spiritual reality (the fish). The scenario is one where expectations may be fulfilled (the catching of fish) but where the satisfaction may not be as deep or lasting (the fast-moving, shallow waters) as we might hope, and this may apply as much to our own feelings as to any external result we encounter. Another alternative may be that we get what we’re fishing for, from a place we may have discounted as ‘shallow’ and so believed was not capable of offering what, in the end, we actually did get from it.

For those born with the Sun at 15 Libra: You may feel the stirrings of ambitions and dreams this year, Libra, and begin to position yourself to make them come true; the biggest obstacle, though, may be your worries about how pursuing ambitions will affect relationships, values, and the state of the finances. The reality is that, if it’s important to you to pursue this, relationships will either adapt or fall by the wayside, finances will work out, and values will be shown for what they are–and with that last, if you’re trying to preserve an image you show others, one that makes a values statement, and you’re worried about losing it, that alone should tell you that the image doesn’t serve who you really are or what you truly value–so is best let go of, anyway. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!
