Part 3 This paragraph is copied from an article I have in progress, but it fits here as well since it’s part of the Solar Return. I’ll finish the article after this one is posted. “On the 11th of September, the Midheaven of the Solar Return had progressed to 22 Aries 31, squaring the 22

India and Pakistan – The 2018 Solar Returns in 3 parts, part 2

Part 2 India I won’t linger with a new lead in since I’d intended the two returns this time to be joined to avoid my concern about having the two separated by several days. While India’s SR also opens with the third house rising, India’s chart was created at a time a bit later than

India and Pakistan – The 2018 Solar Returns in 3 parts, part 1

Part 1 My apologies, dear readers, for the lengthy delay in offering forecasts and more articles over the last roughly 15-16 months or so. It was beyond my control. While I have more to do before I’m on the other side of a health issue, you’ve been on my mind. I’m writing as I can

Breaking News: Supreme Court of India Strikes Down 150-Year-Old Anti-Gay Law

Just a quick comment to explain that I began to write this article immediately after the news came out yesterday afternoon. As a result, I may not have caught all of the references to “today,” referring to the 6th of September as I post this now on the 7th. My apologies. I want to get

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Björn Borg! June 6, 2017

Despite all my efforts on Tuesday–well, I started writing this on your day, dear Björn–it seems there was just so much I could do just to get this out before the day had actually passed. I didn’t make it, but at least you’ll know a fan thought of you and wanted to create this special

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 And now the Pluto station to Retrograde for the United Kingdom… With Leo rising, the Sun rules the Pluto SRx chart from its 9th house conjunction to Mercury Rx. Neither it nor Mars are really at the

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 of 3

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 In contrast to the crash chart from earlier in the day, this one had a clearly Eastern first quadrant below-the-horizon dominance. At first, I was baffled about this kind of dominance since the action was happening to my 16-yo co-traveler and me; but then it hit me: I

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 of 3

Sometime around Easter, I had promised someone I’d write about the Pluto Retrograde that took place on Thursday the 20th of April. But as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men–or, as Robert Burns wrote in “To A Mouse”… While the narration may seem a bit convoluted, there is method to

The World Tapestry: Did the World Just Implode??? Part 3

Part 1 Part 2 Moving on now to the United States chart with the Uranus Station to Retrograde… The Western, third quadrant, above-the-horizon dominance comes into play with the Uranus Rx chart for the United States, pointing to the emphasis on relationships in a very public way.
