I am writing this post because over the years I have benefited numerous people when it comes to answering various questions about body sensations, spiritual experiences, unexplained dream elements, etc. I don’t have all the answers, but I will admit that and I have quite a solid network of practitioners and colleges to refer people to if need be.

And I don’t mean to boast or brag too much, but I have been very fortunate regarding my spiritual teachers, mentors, yogis, coaches, bodywork instructors, astrology teachers, etc. I thank my karma everyday.

If you are an avid reader of my blog, you would know that I have quite a unique background when it comes to being able to answer this diverse array of questions:

I began my “spiritual” journey as a Christian – that is my family’s religion. But it didn’t feel quite right for me, so once I hit age 22 – 23, I started studying philosophy and when I discovered Eastern religions, I was hooked. Zen Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism were first, and then in 2005 I encountered Tibetan Buddhist teachers – Lamas – who really helped to put me on an efficacious spiritual path. It works for me – not for everyone – but I felt like I had come home.

Then on top of that, I have been studying and practicing emotional-process oriented bodywork – Craniosacral Therapy, Vagus work (working with the Vagus nerve), Pre- and Perinatal Psychology (Birth Process Work), Asian bodywork, Reiki and more. I have practiced a bit of yoga (mainly restorative or yin or Svaroopa yoga) along with delving deeper into Qigong (Chinese yoga) every week. Each month I assist and support one or two dozen clients to work through manageable and sustainable amounts of personal growth work – clearing, repairing, releasing emotional confusion or psycho-spiritual knots and tangles.

Oh and did I mention that I practice Spiritual Astrology? This is Western Astrology but with a karmic astrology, psychological, evolutionary slant. I specialize in Medical (Health and Wellness), Relationship, Natal Astrology and Timing Aspects. Therefore I love looking at how astrology ties in with psychology and how these both tie in with health and wellness issues!

I currently lead a dream group where we embody and make someone’s dream come to life – from Susan Harper’s Living Dream work. It is an awesome group where we get to play with a unique form of psycho-drama.

So my background is quite well-rounded and diverse. With that said, let’s be realistic again, I don’t have all the answers. I may not even be a good fit for you. But I have a wide range of experience and fellow colleagues and practitioners to whom I refer people. And I have benefited many people – discovering clarity through their astrology charts, through their dreams, through talking about Pre- and Perinatal Psychology, and more!

Therefore, if you have a pressing question or the need to chat, let me know. I can work with your budget. I have a sliding scale if my normal rates are a bit too high for you. I have worked with many international clients as well.

Feel free to read back through my blog here to see posts on many topics – Spiritual Astrology, psycho-spiritual process work, bodywork, Tibetan Buddhism and more.

Or visit my website at http://www.mkirbymoore.com to see more about what I offer.

I do seem to specialize however in working with idiopathic disease processes (you know, the unknown cause and origin of diseases where doctors are scratching their heads saying, “I’m not sure…”). Again, I don’t claim to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, but it is amazing what we can perceive when we have a vast holistic perspective! (I am definitely not a doctor.)

I am also over half-way through Somatic Experiencing training – tools for resourcing and tracking the nervous system. And tools for working to settle the nervous system when it has encountered overwhelm and chaos (a.k.a. working with trauma). So I use this awesome modality in working with clients both in person and over distance.

Thank you for reading and let me know if you are interested in setting up a time to chat.

Hello friends and fellow Astrological seekers,

I am going to teaching two or three astrology classes this fall. One or two classes will be online – so you can attend from anywhere! One will be in person here in Charlottesville Virginia (we’ll see if we can record that one as well).

My thoughts are to teach a Basics of Spiritual Astrology class. This will be online and recorded. If you want to attend live (and be able to ask questions etc) there will be a set fee. And if you want to watch the recording, I will charge a subscription fee so you can watch several classes for one annual fee!

Sign up for my newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/dsiMwj

It will take you to the MailChimp sign up form.

You can also visit my website to purchase Astrology Interpretations and more here: http://www.mkirbymoore.com

I also plan to teach a Working with Trauma in the Birth Chart – maybe the Basics will be a prerequisite to this class. Same format as above. And if there is enough interest, we will look at Developmental Psychology and the Natal Horoscope. I know this is ambitious – so I need to see how much interest there is as well.

And I would even like to teach a Medical Astrology class sometime – but that might have to be later next year.

Let me know if you are interested in one or two of these classes!

Thank you for visiting!

I’m not entirely sure this is a good thing.. sometimes it might be best to keep it simple. However, I have a lot of training under my belt. I am very fortunate to be a part of several healing lineages – Tibetan Buddhist, Craniosacral Therapy, Polyvagal (Vagus nerve work), Chinese Medicine through Asian Bodywork, etc. And the relatively new (to me) modality Somatic Experiencing that I have been studying off and on since 2012 often works best when incorporating other systems. All reasons that I am able to offer quite the dynamic session if it seems appropriate (or if the client comes in with a complicated issue and says, “I don’t know what you should do for me,” then I muscle test and might include two or three modalities).

With that said, things have gotten quite dynamic over the past three or four weeks…

A client, who had been seeing me for a while (gave permission to share a little about their session), wanted to take a break from working together. This is normal as people often feel better after they do a series of three, five, seven or even 10 sessions. Considering this would be the 12th time seeing them, I was really glad they dedicated that much time to doing their inner work.

However, they surprised me by saying they wanted to meditate together for their final session! I was getting a culmination / completion type review ready regarding recapping some of the work we did together – A “where have you been over the past 6 months?” kind of thing. And meditation sounded great too!

So we sat for 40+ minutes together. I don’t have any special qualities, let’s just start by saying that! Because it is true. However, I am connected to some incredible teachers, yogis and Tibetan Lamas who do have special qualities, and to the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Buddhism which has amazing healing qualities. So I was happy to provide a tiny bit of a spiritual container for this client (I have been meditating since 2002, and meditating efficaciously since 2006, for them it was more like five or six years).

When I meditate with people, my resonance (from doing bodywork – I can sense in my body what clients are experiencing in their body) sometimes comes through. And it did with this client as well. So after the meditation I was able to check in and make a couple of recommendations to them. (Not to say too much!)

Next, I have been seeing a client long distance for bodywork / Somatic Experiencing type work. That is pretty amazing – they are very receptive to this potent combination of modalities. I have worked with several clients in this manner over the past several years, and I have done dozens of long distant and even international Astrology Interpretations. So it is fitting that things are starting to branch out more in this direction.

Then recently, I did an astrology interpretation in person where I combined a Conflict Resolution technique with astrology. It was amazing – first time I had ever done that (on paper). Keeping everything confidential of course, I will just mention the method I would use if I did this again.

There is a conflict resolution technique which I learned from teachers at Eastern Mennonite University – where they have an excellent conflict resolution program! Then I filled in the categories with planets instead of other issues.

When someone comes to you with a really full plate – like they are overwhelmed and they mention four or more significant issues they are chewing on, this technique can be very beneficial to help them sort everything out. If someone has six or seven significant issues going on simultaneously, they literally cannot keep track of everything – rather they are probably in a space where they are bouncing like a pinball from issue to issue – only able to react in the moment. This method can work wonders with them – it is literally medicine to help them organize their thoughts and their heart around these various issues.

Not to give too much away (you can come and see me for a session to do this type of work – and I could even do it long distance with you!)… but let’s just say we write down the issues – which in this case are the planets. Then we write down what the issues (whether people or “who, what, when, or where” things) need. Next we look at what is it that you truly need? We take time to flesh that out – to truly get to the core of your needs. Then is there any common ground between their needs and yours? Maybe maybe not… And finally, is there a win / win solution that we can come to or a way out at least?

Doing this with planets is really interesting! It is as if the planets have this subconscious energy that is pulling at us – until we make it conscious and then start to have a choice with what we do with it. That subconscious pull would be the second category – the planets are the “issues” in this case, the subconscious influences are the “issue’s” needs. Then we look at the clients conscious needs in these areas. (Category 3) Then is there any common ground between the un / subconscious influences and the conscious needs? And finally, what is the way forward? Is there a win / win where we can use the planet’s influence constructively?

Awesome stuff! I am loving what I am doing. Let me know if you are interested in having your chart done – whether the traditional chatting about the charts method or another more dynamic / unconventional method!

This is a continuation from a previous post. Go back and read that one first. This post is in progress. Over the next few days more will be written. 🙂

Why do relationships occasionally come to people who are wholly unprepared for one? Or which aspects do I look at to see a potential romantic relationship coming my way?

This was an interesting question! For someone who knows astrology well, then a new relationship possibility would not be a huge surprise. You can look at any number of aspects in the Timing Charts (Transit Chart, Secondary Progressed Chart, etc) to see whether there will be a possible romantic tryst (if you are into that kind of thing) or a more serious potential partnering.

These aspects include Progressed Venus conjunct Natal / Pr Mars, Natal / Pr Sun, Natal / Pr Moon (at these times love will be in the air for two to three years so you would look at shorter Transit aspects to actually see “when”). Progressed Mars in the Natal 7th house is when we have a lot of energy and drive to partner up – especially closer to the Descendant. Pr Mars will be in the 7th house for up to 50 years… so the first 10 degrees of that house are more poignant in this case. Having an accurate birth time makes a big difference in cases like these.

I wrote an entire post on marriage aspects in astrology. Go back and read through the astrology category or search marriage aspects for more on this topic.

If we have done A LOT of work on ourselves, then Transiting Saturn entering the 7th house can indicate a time of a romantic relationship deepening. More commitment, more responsibility, more discipline required to keep it a harmonious relationship. But still quite possibly a healthy, happy, lively relationship!

There are other aspects – lots of them – that indicate a time of potential pairing or even of juicy short love affairs… better to work with a skillful astrologer to discern what and when. 🙂

Keep in mind what I mention on that first article / post – if we resist meeting someone, if we do not put the causes and conditions into place to meet a potential partner, then we might be able to resist these astrological suggestions.

Is a relationship set in stone? Regarding the dynamic between the two people?

In other words, are the ways of relating between two people stuck or fixed OR subject to change and mutability?

The immediate answer to this question of course is “No.” However, there are a number of people who are “stuck in a rut” or many people say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So only if we are willing to acknowledge that there might be an issue, or I might have a blind spot, or that suppressed emotion is starting to really get in the way of my giving and receiving love… then we can make changes, work on improving ourselves and therefore shift the relationship to a better place. If we can peel ourselves away from self-grasping and focus on how can I make my partner’s life better today? Then this will make things change really quickly.

The Composite Chart is set in stone – it is like the Natal Chart for the relationship. So if two people have serious quarreling for years on end.. then that might be the baseline. But Progress (progression) happens, change is inevitable. But it might not be fast enough if there are too many problems in the relationship.

Being more flexible, adaptable, open, curious, spacious and having a sense of wonder of what this day will bring will help. How will I be pleasantly surprised today? How can I joyfully surprise my partner today?

Why are we attracted to some people but not others?

I do not claim to know much about the mechanisms of karma. However, we can often see attraction in the birth chart. There are many aspects that reveal this.

For starters, one of the hottest (spiciest, juiciest, etc) aspects between two charts is Mars square Venus – whether synastry or in the composite chart. This is one square the works real good. “Oh you mean there is tension between my conquering warrior and your delicate damsel, oh my…” (Don’t worry this won’t get X-rated. I hope.)

But there are some interesting aspects for attraction as well. Jupiter trine / sextile / conjunct Mars – a fun playful flirtatious competition; Jupiter / Venus – this may not be hot passion but it will mean you two are very generous and kind with each other.

There are the soul mate aspects (I’ll just leave this one blank on purpose. Some cards need to stay close to my chest. Message me for a personalized interpretation. My site is http://www.mkirbymoore.com)

Pluto / Mars aspects when soft are pretty amazing. There might be fireworks. If hard aspects, attempt to be gentle!

There is even the weird mother / oedipus attraction piece of Mars in aspect to the Moon. Especially if it is a male / female relationship and it is his Mars / her Moon. This can be another piece in the attraction puzzle. But I wouldn’t base a long-term relationship on it.

Is there one karmic pre-destined person for us to be with?

The answer to this question is “No.” I believe that there might be a primary relationship with whom we have a strong karmic connection, someone who will provoke us enough to grow and mature and ripen. With that said however, if I choose not to be with that person (for any number of reasons), then I also believe that there are many secondary relationships out there which will also poke and prod us into growth and evolving for the better.

Actually, different people will inspire or reflect what we need to see / feel / experience in order to work through some deep psycho-spiritual issue. And different people will reflect different aspects or levels or ages of what we need. Here is an example:

I am currently dating a woman who has a four year old daughter. The woman I’m dating is just wrapping up a divorce. (They signed the separation agreement long before we started dating – I made sure of this. No need to commit any sexual misconduct!) When I started seeing her, her daughter was three and a half years old.

This current relationship I’m in, which is going really well by the way, was the perfect catalyst for me to see how wounded I was by my own parents’ divorce (which I was three and a half years old!). Previously I thought most of my unmet needs / wounds came from a difficult birth… (I have done a lot of work on myself btw.)

Now, having brought this unconscious wound(s) to the surface, I lean into support as I work to resource my little 3 and 4 year old parts, I repair his / my nervous system / brain and I work to slow things down. Because the big ball of emotions was too overwhelming for a three-year-old nervous system at the time. Now we can skillfully, patiently, compassionately and gently untangle that big psycho-spiritual knot!

In conclusion, there may be several people who reflect different things I need to work on. I am very happy and content being in this current relationship. But say I had chosen differently 6-8 months ago, I might be with someone else who reflects another unconscious part of me that need healing.

Why does it seem that some people can’t resist being with their partners?

This was another interesting question! Are we compelled to be with someone? People sometimes talk about irresistible lust. And when we are younger, and the reproductive hormones are flowing mightily through our veins, then maybe it might seem irresistible. But for most rational people, we always have a choice.

It might seem we are “fated” to be with someone – always bumping into them at the store, being in class with them all the time, sharing the same spiritual path, or whatever. But if we can meditate, if we can peel our minds away from the groove we have started making – about how they are the perfect partner or about how they will solve all our problems – go for a walk in nature, spend time gazing at the vast sky, go for a trip to physically get separation from them – then we would see that it really is a choice.

If you feel you need to be with someone, then go for it. I am not saying not to! If you feel the irresistible urge to partner / be near them / romance them, then there is probably a reason. Learn from them. Grow with them. Practice generosity! And on a different note…

Being aware of our early unmet needs and developmental wounds is very important. Because this is what causes this magnetic attraction. As an example, the abandoned part of me will be fulfilled by the giving assertive part of you. And if my early developmental unmet needs template matches up very closely with yours, then it will feel like the “perfect match!” But in reality, it can be unconscious forces at work.

And of course it might be the case that we have a strong positive healthy karmic connection to someone or maybe multiple someones. And in this case, we feel drawn toward them, we love spending time with them, it feels like we grow or get fed by being with them. Then this is very positive and healthy! Go with it!

So if we have done a lot of work on ourselves. If we are pretty clear about our psycho-spiritual drives and needs, then we can go into a relationship with less unconscious yearning (inappropriate feelings of will-you-take-care-of-my-little-one?). Then we can have a co-creating, inspiring, supportive, spacious, reliable, committed, generous, light, lively, spontaneous, grounded partnership! Yay!

Is there a monastic signature in the birth chart? When you see this, you might think to yourself, yes this individual (at least on some level) does not want to be in a romantic relationship this lifetime?

Whether it is personal choice or due to our karma… if you see someone with Venus in the 12th house and in Virgo, then unfortunately (sorry folks) relationships might not be easy for that person. This could also be true for Venus in Scorpio – although for a different reason. Venus in Scorpio in the 12th house could be more on the scheming / manipulative side and therefore have trouble keeping relationships as a result.

But even this combination is not a life sentence of being alone. We must take into account aspects! Jupiter trine either of these Venuses in the 12th house and maybe they will benefit quite nicely from a relationship (and benefit their partner(s)).

So yes there could be a monastic signature, but it is complex. A good astrologer can help you to sort this out.

Yesterday, as I drove home from a Dharma teaching in the Tidewater region (about 2.5 hours away from home), I had the good fortune to be questioned by a friend and Tibetan scholar about how does relationship astrology work? He grew up as a monk but gave up his robes and vows around the age of 23.

This is going to be a post in progress. So if you come back, you can read more over the next few days. 🙂

First off, what is relationship astrology? What in particular do you look at in the astrology chart?

Relationship astrology in general refers to looking at two people’s charts and comparing them, using the synastry between them and sometimes even creating a new chart of the relationship called the Composite Chart. With that said, first we will look at how we can see someone’s relationship needs from their own Natal Chart – their birth horoscope.

All of the planets, signs and houses in the astrology chart can play a role in relationship astrology, however Venus and Mars would be the best place to look first. Venus represents what we want (what do we desire?) in the simplest explanation, and Mars represents how we go about getting what we want.

This sounds very straight forward right? Well, astrology is a very complex topic. So it isn’t that simple. For instance, Venus’ sign can tell you a bit about how the person will like to love and be loved. It will tell you about their sensuality level, their passion or lack thereof, what kind of aesthetics they prefer, are they more romantic, do they like to take their time, how do they like to be wined and dined, etc. But here is the catch – so will the house position of Venus, so will the aspects to Venus, so will planets in the 2nd and 7th houses of the birth chart… Are you getting how intricate and interconnected astrology (in general and relationship astrology in particular) can be?

Likewise, Mars’ sign will tell you how assertive someone will be, how competitive, how driven, how direct, how aggressive, how passionate, how sensual, how romantic, how sexually driven, etc. And likewise so will the house placement, the aspects to Mars and planets in the 1st or 8th house.

Either of these planets aspecting Uranus, Neptune or Pluto will tack on an entire new level of dynamic twists and turns to either Mars or Venus. People have written entire books about each of these planets alone.. so I won’t go too deep here. Saturn or Jupiter in aspect to either relational planet will have different unique effects and persuasions.

Relationship astrology – why do some people yearn for a relationship really hard but never get one?

First of all, we are social creatures, so pretty much all people need social contact. Ideally we like to touch and be touched (consensual, comfortable, loving, appropriate touch), we want to be seen and heard and appreciated. But how much touching do we enjoy? Are we a Type A personality – driven, muscling through, a “no pain, no gain” type? Or are we more laid back? Are we more sensitive? And does that affect our romantic needs? (It often does!)

The first place to look is at the Natal Venus. The sign and house placement will tell you A LOT about the individual’s needs in relationships – and possibly if they even want one at all. By the way, it is rare for someone to be totally averse to any type of romantic relationship (see the last question below). Even if someone has less sexual hunger, we still get lonely and benefit from human contact!

Venus in the 2nd house will be different from Venus in the 5th and very different from the 12th house! So house position is quite important. The sign plays a major role, and alas, so do aspects to Venus.

The astrology chart is a reflection of our gross karma. So if someone has abused their power in relationships in the past (lives), then it is possible they will have poor relationship karma. But keep in mind that karma is not permanent – it can be transformed. If you have a spiritual practice, it can be transformed even faster. Negative karma can be worked off as it were.

Also we need to put the causes and conditions into place. If we are abrasive and angry, then we need to work on ourselves before we could possibly attract a harmonious relationship! And the conditions involve meeting people. There might be a great partner out there for us, but if we are too scared to go out, or to try GreenSingles or MeetMindful or other legit dating sites, then we might successfully avoid them for a while.

But the key is to work on yourself first. I told my mother back when I was 20 that I was going to work on improving myself so that down the road I could attract a good partner. That is how you can be prepared. If we don’t work on ourselves, then the “universe” (or really our inner need reflected in an outer person) will send someone who really triggers us around our blind spots.

To answer this question… be wary when you see the word “never.” You can be more prepared by working on yourself. Especially work to resource your inner developmental parts – this work is done via Birth Process Work (PPN Work), EMDR, Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS), some Somatic Experiencing if the practitioner is really experienced and a few other modalities.

Why do we need to be aware of our developmental needs and unmet needs? Because this is what gets stirred up as soon as we get intimate with someone – we go straight back to our attachment style with our caretakers. This is true when we start having sex with someone and especially when we start living with someone. So do repair work for your little one. 🙂

Then you will have less unconscious stuff to be triggered by! And we will have much more psychic energy to put into creativity and joy!

To be continued in the next post!

Thank you for reading!

As a tiny bit of context to this post, look up retrograde movement of planets on Wikipedia if you don’t know what retrograde means.

I have been too busy to peek, but I wonder how many people are writing about the building T-Square in the sky right now. It involves Venus, Mars and Uranus. (And my natal Jupiter… but that is personal) 🙂

The bizarre part about this is that all three of these planets are either slowing down to go retrograde, are just coming out of retrograde (moving slowly out of stationing direct) or are currently retrograde. It seems like it has been a long while since something like this has happened? If I were to hazard a guess – 20 years?

Therefore, not only will relationships have a wrench thrown in them for a couple weeks (or longer), but the pace and timing of these normally quick personal planets (Mars & Venus) are much slower and possibly even distorted as Venus slows to station retrograde.

Uranus is retrograde in early Taurus. Mars is barely direct, creeping through the sky (from our perspective), in very late Capricorn – it reenters Aquarius in a week. And Venus is beginning to slow significantly in late Libra as it preps to turn Rx in early Scorpio on Oct 6th. In other words, wow! Should be an interesting time in the news, in relationships and I can easily see emotions and tempers flaring in the sports world.

The real zinger is if someone has a personal planet or a chart ruler in late Cardinals signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn) or early fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). Then this T-Square really pulls a punch! For me as I mentioned above, it is tweaking my natal Jupiter which I have exalted in late Cancer.

Depending on house placements and which planets are involved, this might manifest in many many ways. For instance, having these three planets transiting your angular houses (1st, 4th, 7th and / or 10th) will make the manifestation very tangible and real in your life. Probably showing up in your relationships (1st / 7th) or in your public / home life (4th / 10th).

Uranus is the unpredictable planet which demands the truth. It marches to the beat of its own drum, has very impulsive ingenious energy. It is the mad scientist energy and it also plays a major role in spontaneous, insightful, creativity and all things off-planet/outside-the-box like astrology, acupuncture, astrophysics and healing with electricity (for instance, like working with Tesla coils in healing).

Venus shows what we like, what we desire, what do we long for. This includes clothing, fashion items, luxury items, bedding, how we pamper ourselves, etc. It is also our aesthetic sense – do we have refinement, an artistic bent or are we more bohemian and devil-may-care? Venus shows what we like in relationships as well as physical items. Do we want more freedom in relationships (Sagittarius / Aquarius)? Do we want to be front and center in them (Leo / Cancer)? Are we more plodding, patient, taking our time (Taurus and to a certain extent other earth signs)?

Mars is the energy which shows how we go about getting what we want. Are we aggressive? Assertive? Combative? Is there a little refinement or are we gruff and vulgar? Uranus would add some temporary vulgarity and coarseness during this brief transit by the way. Mars rules steel, weapons, steel vehicles, firearms (along with Uranus),  and more.

When all three of these come together… look out! Stay away from firearms for a few weeks. Especially if there is anyone around who might go off emotionally. Speaking of emotions – Venus square Mars increases passion – those two planets alone! Add Uranus, and well, now we have a potential powder keg for any individuals without much awareness of how to self-regulate.

I can easily see players on professional sports teams getting ejected for crazy, rash, impulsive, violent, emotional reactions. No matter what sport – especially soccer, football and who knows, if a pitcher plunks a batter who has this T-Square hitting his natal Pluto or Mars… then there might be a bench-clearing fight on our hands! (Baseball for those not in the US or Japan)

And as we have impulsivity, heightened reactions and increased passions, of course relationships are going to be affected! Be aware that you might want to think twice, take some deep breaths before reacting emotionally for the next couple weeks. Take a little bit of time and space to let your head clear if you can. Nothing like making a huge mistake and wishing you could have taken that outburst back.. Of course it can be repaired. And with Mars and Venus involved, love making might help with that repair – provided there is enough trust at that point.

So may cooler heads prevail. May everyone have the insight and awareness to notice when their egos are heating up, or putting up a serious resistance. At least with these planets involved (at least Mars and Venus), we tend to blow hot quickly and then cool off just as quick. Although with Uranus in the mix, the affront might be too egregious. Then it will take time to repair and forgive.

Lay off the gas. Slow down. Take some deep breaths. Yin yoga. Feldenkrais, Craniosacral Therapy, Deep Tissue massage would all be good during this time.

And good luck! 🙂

Thanks for reading as always!

Who has heard that we currently have 6 planets retrograde (Rx)? Who knew that twice in the past six weeks we had partial eclipses?! Anyone aware that we have Neptune and Pluto back in sextile aspect, meaning the opportunity for Yods (double inconjunct or Quincunx aspects) is now back?

Well I’m an astrologer – part time anyway – so it is my job to keep tabs on some of this stuff. 🙂

Actually at this precise moment, we have Mercury stationing direct on Sunday, Mars stationing direct at the end of August and then in early Sept Saturn slowly turns direct as well. Plus Jupiter just came out of Rx a few weeks ago – so it is slowly gaining steam. What does all this mean?

It means that you might be stuck behind several people at stop lights who just sit there when the light turns green – Mercury ruling traffic is basically standing still in the sky for the next 4 – 5 days – plus Mars rules steel and machinery (cars and trucks for that matter).  I have had to honk at three people who did this in the last couple of days! (I live in a relatively educated and more enlightened in some ways city, so it is a little amiable tap of the horn; one thing I love about Charlottesville is that you don’t hear many horns blaring.) So when I say this tumultuous astrological season is wrapping up with a… I am looking for the “Blleeuurrr” sound which means it is tapering out, fizzing out, burning out, amounting to not much! With all these planets slowing down to turn direct (come out of Rx), things in our lives might be at a stand still for a few days or even a couple weeks (if not longer).

This summer has also seen (on August 3rd) a tight configuration involving Mars square Uranus by transit with the Moon also hopping on board (conjunct Uranus). Did anyone have or witness some bizarre irrationality that day? I sure did! Mars / Uranus is explosive enough but then throw the Moon in the mix and tempers might flare over petty little things. That was happening in the early Fixed signs – Taurus and Aquarius to be exact.

And the second eclipse happened early on August 11th – with a Yod to the Sun involved as well! Specifically, the Sun was in Leo along with Rx Mercury, and there was a (3 degree orb) Yod pointing at the Sun from Neptune and Pluto! Thankfully there didn’t seem to be too much chaos / bad news as a result (confusion from Rx Mercury, mixed with potent Sun / Pluto discord).

I am really looking forward to clearer skies! By late September we will be down to 3 planets Rx plus Chiron (and Pluto is direct October 1st). But then Venus does go Rx in October – be aware in new relationships (get second opinions about new people met under that influence) and try to be more flexible and patience in existing relationships as well. ❤

By late November things will really quiet down as far as Rx planets go. In fact, January and February will be surprisingly quiet (nothing much Rx!). Wow! Of course transits continue, progressions evolve, habits arise, life continues, cycles go through, waves arise. We can surf! Breathe and surf.
