Hello dear readers,

I still have the intention to work with (learn, teach, study, practice, dream) the above topic (title). PPN Astrology.

In fact, I just did an astrology interpretation (continued from a previous session) today that was mainly a PPN Astrology session. It was primarily educational. With that said, we mainly talked about Double Binds, Compensation Patterns, Tension Fields, Astrological Yods, what-healing-looks-like-on-a-larger-level, Outlet Dynamics and more (he was pretty far along in his inner-resource/resilience skills). Oh my word! – I should check with my client and see if I can type up a transcript of the 90 minute conversation. It was pretty epic!

So I just wanted to post a teaser… errr… I mean update about how we are doing with this Pre- and Perinatal Astrology endeavor.

Well because I am just back from a rockin’ Massage School program (a Heaven and Earth school), that means that I am slowly building up my bodywork practice in the area again AND studying for the national exam AND taking advantage of this incredible spring weather to go biking and hiking AND taking advantage of being so close to pure clean mountain air and streams where I can do Solar, Water and Tree Chi Kung with such ease and bliss…

So it might be a little while before PPN Astrology really lifts off. I’ll keep you in the loop however!

<little bit of a secret – let’s keep this between you and me how about?> About 11 years ago I was doing a personal Tibetan Buddhist retreat at my home, I believe I had a week off from school and I wasn’t working much at the time, so I did a little bit of Ngondro practice. Five fold path of Mahamudra Ngondro that is (basic preliminary practices). Anyway… I took my friend’s advice and sort of read ahead in the text – way ahead… Not unlike the sorcerer’s apprentice in Fantasia. (I didn’t lose control entirely, but I pried open my mind in a way I had never done before.) I kind of got a glimpse of the future and saw this wild, dynamic, potent Astrology modality I was meant to teach. I believe what I saw was Pre- and Perinatal Astrology.

It must be beneficial and powerful. Therefore I am abiding patiently until the right time, when there is a right teacher (I’m not ready quite yet), the right location, the right students and the right conditions. We’ll see if and what unfolds over the next few years. But I expect we won’t be bored!

As usual, thank you for reading!

We have been looking at Medical Astrology of late, and in particular I want to continue a theme that I have been touching on. That is the example of a single aspect – Saturn opposite Mars. Who knew that you could get so much information from one little aspect? Heh. Well let me tell you! Actually this particular aspect is very rich and juicy – any aspect involving the 2nd and / or 8th house will reveal a lot of material. And with that said, if you investigate deep enough, any aspect in the chart, in any house can reveal a treasure trove of information. But we are going to stick with Saturn and Mars for today.

To review, we have discussed, at least in brief, the planets Saturn and Mars and what they can signify. We have touched on the signs they are tenanting (Virgo and Pisces respectively), and we briefly brushed on the houses involved – the 2nd and 8th in this case. So what you might ask is left? I would refer you, if you have seen the Star Wars movies, to the scene in episode VI I think where Luke Skywalker says, “So I am a Jedi…” And Yoda makes a very surprised noise – “OOEEwwwhhoohhhh!!!” Actually I would ask in retort, “what have we actually covered so far?!” Very little to be precise. We have just brushed the surface actually, so lets look a little deeper now. Let’s get into the health correlations of this aspect.

Oh, and for one related tangent, Mars in the 8th house CAN (but not always) indicate that the individual will have a premature death. Now before anyone freaks out, let me explain. Traditionally, the 8th house was associated with death. When 8th house energies are not confronted and remain fermenting under the surface as it were, then I happen to agree with this traditional dark fatalistic assessment. But when we do our psychological work, perhaps seeing a professional body-worker on a regular basis or receiving regular acupuncture, counseling or if we practice other forms of quality self-care, and we get clearer about our neuroses and our psychological predispositions, then we move beyond “being ruled by our stars” as it were and we move toward the greater understanding and wisdom which is represented by the 9th house. So, if we have Mars in the 8th house in our natal charts, there is very little reason to worry, provided we take responsibility for our incarnation and determine to make appropriate changes. For those of us out there who are still feeling like victims… Then some reflection would be in order.

If the 8th house Mars makes a hard aspect to Pluto, Saturn or Uranus, then we may want to investigate further, especially if it is a close aspect. Then sudden, unexpected (Uranus) death becomes possible, or a violent (Pluto) death becomes slightly more of a reality or poor health conditions is more of a reality (Saturn). But in all of these cases, you must look at many factors: how strong are these planets (according to their sign and house placement), how close is the orb involved, are these the planetary rulers of the chart (ruling the Ascendant sign) or the Sun ruler? Which houses do these planets rule? And we must look at positive aspects which would offset the risks indicated by these hard aspects. So do not let one little prediction or aspect get you worked up – if you are reading this post, it means you are on the path toward self-understanding and you care enough to investigate your situation. Next, you may care enough to make the requisite changes which will soften the implied difficulty in the aspect.

With that long-winded explanation of Mars in the 8th, in Medical Astrology, what do Mars and Saturn represent?
And as I get into the Health side of astrological analysis, please remember that we cannot separate these things. I have found that often times, the psycho-emotional issues associated with an aspect contribute or at least go hand-in-hand with the physical manifestations of these aspects. What do I mean by this? Well I believe that before we have physical manifestation of dis-ease, long before really, there is often times an imbalanced emotional issue or psychological misunderstanding. For instance, if we repress our rage about an early trauma for too long, then eventually that rage will need an appropriate avenue of expression. If we do not provide it with one, if we have some masochistic tendencies, then I guarantee that there will be some health problems as a result. In Visceral Manipulation (bodywork), we learn that certain organs can get loaded up with emotional charge, and without an appropriate healthy way to unload that organ, it will spill over and discharge in bizarre ways – think unexplained rashes, inflammation or idiopathic diseases (unexplained).

And another note – we are not ruled by our stars. Rather, the astrology chart is a reflection of our gross karmas (mental, psychological, physical, emotional, etc) and the chart reflects the physical elements that make up our body, hence we get so much information from the time one takes their first breath, a.k.a. the natal horoscope (birth chart).

With that said, in Medical Astrology, Mars is associated with the production of blood, blood in general and iron (red like the fiery God of War), the metabolism and physical energy, aspects of temperature regulation as you will see below (Mars challenges can indicate disease which result in fevers or chills), the left ear, the kidneys (see below for more), veins (although some would argue Venus has influence here as well) and along with Pluto, Mars shares rulership over the genitals and sex glands. Mars in the body is the fighter, and as a result I suspect it has something to do with both the red and white bloods cells as the white blood cells help to fight off infections and viruses. And these are just the basics! When we delve deeper, I wonder if Mars has some association with the spleen. And I believe it also “rules” the forehead and is associated with headaches in general (along with Aries).

Saturn, in Medical Astrology, is associated with the bones and in particular the knees and the teeth, the skin (along with the Moon and sometimes Venus), it is also associated with the kidneys (see below), the spleen, bladder, phlegm, and the gall bladder. Saturn also is associated with the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, helping to regulate sex hormones, bone and muscle growth. Saturn (think structure) is associated with the skeleton and bony structures in general. Again though, these are the basics of Saturn’s associations in Medical Astrology, so we are seeing how complex this subject can get. Because of Saturn’s association with Calcium, I would venture a guess that the parathyroid glands also come under Saturn’s rulership.

In addition, when we speak of both Mars and Saturn in hard aspect to one another, a competent astrologer should quickly notice that both of these planets are associated with the kidneys. And here is why: both are correlated with the adrenal glands. According to the late Isabel Hickey, she states with regard to the adrenal glands:

“the medulla hormone produces a secretion that can cause fear or flight [or sympathetic freeze]. This part of the adrenal gland is ruled by Saturn [and its hormones are the catecholamines – epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine]. The shell or cortex secretes another hormone giving pugnaciousness and combativeness [(Mars – it produces testosterone among other hormones)]. These are glands more directly connected to the impulse of self-preservation and the animal nature.” She goes on to state that the antidote to an afflicted Mars is lunar maternal nurturing and the antidote to an afflicted Saturn is the Venusian loving-kindness and generosity. (fromAstrology, A Cosmic Science, 1992)

With this connection of both planets to the kidneys, or in particular to the adrenal glands (which sit right on top of the kidneys), we see that Mars in hard aspect to Saturn almost always produces the possibilities of kidney issues. What are these? Headaches and lower lumbar back aches and pains (behind the kidneys) to start. And there might be a predisposition to other kidney issues as well.

So far, in this particular post, we have looked further at Mars in the 8th house, and we have begun to pick apart what Saturn and Mars mean in terms of physical health issues or associations. In the next post I will get into the medical astrology around the houses and signs involved.

This is a brief post about Rectifying the Birth Time

About Rectification – when we work backwards using events in a person’s life to find the birth time (which is unknown at first), this is called Rectifying the Birth Chart. This is yet another example of how, in the hands of skilled astrologers, astrology definitely “works!!” Using information we have explored and discussed with the client about their personality, we might have a strong suspicion about the Rising Sign (which is the sign on the Eastern horizon at the time of birth – it creates the framework of the chart and it is vital to get events accurate in Timing Astrology) but we might not know which degree it is on.

For instance, say someone is a natural leader, they are fiery yet refined and they have a strong sense of inner confidence and self-worth, and if this influence does not show up in many other areas of their chart, there is a chance this person is a Leo Rising. But were they born with an early (e.g., 2 degrees) Leo Ascendant (Rising) or a later one (29 degrees)? In general I find the traits of early degrees to be strengthened, meaning the Leo Rising at 2 degrees would be more fiery and less refined whereas the 29 degree person would have had more time to “figure out the Leo Rising energy.” To find out, at least to within 10 minutes of the accurate birth time, we work backwards using major events from that individual’s life – these could be the birth of children, marriage, divorce, significant accidents, illnesses or surgeries, major promotions, etc. If I can get my hands on five or six accurate dates of major events, I can usually rectify a chart to within 5-10 minutes of the accurate birth time, within an hour or two. And this is not an easy accomplishment, if I may brashly say so myself! :~)

Sometimes I find that I had the right Rising sign in mind, other times not. There are indicators that can throw you off – say the individual has Neptune on their actual Rising sign, this can really fog and cloud the process of finding it! That is until you realize this possibility, ask the right questions and then it becomes clearer! Similarly having Uranus rising (near or just below the Ascendant) can fool one to think that individual has an Aquarius Rising sign, when they actually have another sign there. As the reader can discern, there is much to keep in mind when interpreting a chart, and this comes into play when rectifying the birth time.

In this post I will describe the benefits of having your Natal Chart or Horoscope interpreted by a competent Astrologer.

Kirby Moore specializes in working with individuals and Natal Astrology – which is the basis for Timing Astrology and for Relationship Astrology if you want to go on and look at those areas. Natal Astrology, when interpreted with the individual’s consciousness in mind, reveals a beautiful, mytho-poetic account of the individual’s personality strengths, challenges, gifts and more. And coming from an Evolutionary Astrology background, Kirby’s interpretations include more of a Soul Reading, where you have been in the karmic past and which directions it would be good to move forward in. These interpretations make great gifts for newborns and parents alike!

Unfortunately I think there are some well-meaning people out there who read a few books about Astrology and then they speak about it as experts. Or, even more disappointingly, perhaps some astrologers see the $$ involved in publishing quantity books versus quality. There are many, many astrological resources available which should actually be called what they are: “We will tell your fortune according to your birth day!” or “This is an astrological cook book – all the recipes are prepared ahead of time, if you are looking to grow psychologically or if you want to evolve spiritually, then you won’t get much from reading this!” Of course, these titles would not really sell per se, so we are where we are. 🙂 Those are strong words yes, but someone has got to put a stop to the fatalistic trends in astrology. Saturn is NOT bad! But nearly every astrological cook book will at least hint at the challenges and speak abut Saturn’s aspects with negative connotation. Not good. See some of my previous posts about Saturn for more on this fascinating subject.

These resources add to Astrology’s implausibility and allow people to be correct when they say that Astrology “does not work.” Because it is true – if you do not take the client’s consciousness into account when doing the interpretation, you will probably do very little to benefit them. You must have an open, flexible mind which is supplemented by some years of living experience and observing astrology’s possibilities around you. And this is just a start – you must be able to meet your clients where they are, which also means either dissolving your prejudices completely or suspending them and seeing clients with an unconditionally open heart. Not easy, and unfortunately it doesn’t occur very often. And I can’t say I do this every day, but I’m coming close. 🙂

Well, if the Natal Chart is interpreted by someone (note – NOT a machine, not a computer program or an astrological website recipe maker) competent, the Astrology Chart can transform into a dynamic mytho-poetic portrayal. What most people see when they look at an astrology chart is a large circular ring divided into 12 segments, with strange foreign glyphs in little clumps around the ring. It looks complicated and flat. This is normal, do not fret. To a well-trained astrologer however, seeing an Astrology Chart is like reading the Matrix code. There is Pluto square Mars and with what you have told me up to this point, that means… Oh here we have Jupiter conjunct Uranus and in your case that implies…

Supposedly at the Oracle of Delphi in ancient Greece, one of the phrases engraved above the entrance was “Know Thyself.” This important phrase is still applicable today (even more so now perhaps with all the distracting technology we have to play with), and in Western Astrology, we have a great tool to help us discern our hidden vices and virtues, to know ourselves better. We start with the Natal Horoscope – this is the chart that is cast at the moment we take our first breath as a newborn. This chart marks the location of the planets as they appear from the place of birth. So to cast a Natal Horoscope, one needs the birth date, place and if possible the birth time. Without the birth time, there can be a lot of information gleaned from the chart, but with the time, it becomes more precise. See the next post for a method to Rectify or determine the time of birth using life events, a technique known as Rectification.

The Natal Horoscope tells us what energy (planet) is manifesting in which area(s) of life (astrological house) and it shows us how these energies are interacting with each other. Is there graceful easy flow between Saturn and Venus for instance? Or are there obstacles? What does this mean to that particular individual? The area of life that this aspect affects would show itself through the astrological houses involved. And remember, to conduct an professional and personal interpretation, we must take the frequency or consciousness of that particular client into account. For example, if someone comes to us and the first thing they say is, “Yeah, I’m wondering when I’m going to earn my first million so I can afford that Porsche I have had my eye on…” We have to approach them where they are. Conversely, if someone comes to us and says that they have been to see numerous astrologers and psychics about a spiritual or psychological issue, this probably means they are seriously looking for quality answers and they don’t want to be treated like a bunch of mere planets and aspects. No pun intended! 🙂 We are all unique individuals on different paths – whether emotionally, physically, spiritually, psychologically, etc. And we should do our best to tailor the interpretation to the client.
