“Do not make enemies by accident.”  I loved this quote from the Dowager Countess on the first season of Downton Abbey, which I recently got into.  I also think it is the perfect quote for people who have Transiting Pluto making a hard aspect to their Natal Mercury.

I do need to start off an article like this by saying that our personal Mercuries are all unique.  Sure there are similar degrees – I have Mercury in 8 degrees of Aries, while someone else might have their Mercury at 9 degrees of Aries, and you would have a serious question if you asked “So what’s the difference?!”

Well here’s the thing: Mercury is the connection between head and heart and it is the planet of communication.  It is also the most fickle planet in the Zodiac, as it takes on characteristics from whatever environment it finds itself in.  In my opinion, in addition to being the butterfly of the Zodiac (Gemini especially), Mercury has some shapeshifting / chameleon-like traits.  And this is why two people having the “same” Mercury could experience an entirely different result / situation as Transiting Pluto makes a square to their Mercury.

Let me go a little more in depth here.  As Mercury is the planet of connection between head and heart, and it is the Throat Chakra of the Zodiac as it were, the curious communicator, it depends greatly upon what is in said head and said heart as to what comes out of the mouth.  This is another reason this transit will look different for all of us.  We are at differing frequencies – we have made different choices in our lives to get where we presently are.  You could call it karma, or you could say it is Divine Fate or whatever, but we have some choice in our lives, and our choices influence who we are.

With this said, I will try to nail down some generalities about Tr. Pluto making a hard aspect to Mercury.  But do keep in mind that for someone who is well-balanced, who generally is able to speak their mind and who seems to have a practical head on their shoulders, this transit might not be a big deal.  It might just be a few days or weeks of added intensity with communication or issues with relatives or in-laws, etc.  However, for others, specifically people who are naturally pleaser types or people who placate others with ease or people who are too soft and you might call them push-overs, then Pluto making a hard aspect to Mercury might get a bit messy.

Generally speaking, what can happen when the power-hungry planet of the Underworld meets the busy-body, messenger of the gods?  Righteousness.  That’s right – we can suddenly (or because this aspect will last for at least a year or two off and on – gradually) notice that we are picking fights with people because we feel we are right.  Although, Pluto is a very insidious energy – we will rarely ever notice our own righteousness.  Unless we have a habit of reflecting on our words and comments and actions and unless we are open to the truth of a situation, rather than what we want it to be, Pluto will blind us for a few months.  We might become more picky about someone not doing their job – pointing out the tiny details where they can improve, or we might respond to people in a new, intense and steamy way, because we feel they are somehow wrong and someone has to point it out to them.  Really?  In the long run will it really matter?

Comprehensive Natal Chart Interpretation

This is because Pluto does seek power and control.  Whether we’d like to admit it or not, pointing out someone else’s flaws can be fun (especially under this ill-fated transit).  But does it help anything?  Are we just picking fights for petty reasons?  Pluto can and will bring whatever is hidden to the surface, so if you find that you are becoming a monster under this transit, saying “crazily awkward” or “intense fighting” words, then you should know that that part of your nature has been there all along.  I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I noticed this in myself.  At first it is hard to swallow.  You might say, “this is not who I am?!!”  Well, we have news for you – that is who you were in your unconscious and now you are more conscious of your lower self honey…  Ooph!!  Yep, this transit can shed a lot of light on our personal fallacies.  Where do we want control in our lives?  Where do we need to stand up for ourselves in our lives (appropriately)?  Where are missing the forest for the trees – being so concerned about every little detail that we miss out on the beauty of life around us?  Any of these things are possible with Pluto making this challenging dance with Mercury.

Generally speaking, Pluto’s transit over any planet forces some type of transformation.  As I mentioned above, for someone who easily speaks their mind and is not afraid to speak their truth to power (this is a rare trait I should add), then Pluto’s passage may not be that transformative.  Like I mentioned, Mercury also rules local travel, relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings) and communication.  So there are other facets of life that could be “stirred up” as it were.  But for any of us who do have some lingering fear of upsetting people in power – whether we are projecting old stuff onto the present, or whether we need to keep our mouths shut to keep our job, Pluto will begin to press for us to transform and to step into our truth and empowerment.  As you know, this can be a messy or a sticky process, but it is well worth it in the long run.

Pluto’s ability to bring to the surface stuff that has been hidden can also have another effect.  There is a small chance that during this transit, we will realize that we have been deceiving ourselves in a certain area of life.  And of course, if we are deceiving ourselves, then it follows that we are deceiving others.  And this would be a time when our deception gets noticed by others and we have to start cleaning up our act.  You see, Pluto demands or provokes confrontation.  This can take many forms, and Pluto / Scorpio energy people are very good at finding the right angle to approach an issue or to open up a potential sticky conversation.  But the most difficult person with whom we might have a conflict is with ourselves, especially if we are older and / or set in our ways.  Pluto might be asking us to change (for the better, even though most of us fear change in one way or another).

Finally, there may be jealousy and / or resentment which crops up around a situation, and this situation must be confronted.  If not confronted, the body / mind could be affected by mysterious maladies (which would actually be the inflammation of resentment turned inward on the body).  Do not expect this situation to be an easy fix – there may be complications or sticky entanglements to peel apart first.

And as always, Pluto’s and Mercury’s house positions play a large role in determining what will actually come up during this transit.  Also, is Mercury well aspected in the birth chart?  Does it make an aspect to Saturn or Pluto natally?  Is it a Singleton – a lone nomad planet without any aspects?  These will all play a role in determining what this time will look like.  And, right now, Uranus is also in this mix, as it is making a Transiting Square to Pluto in the sky, which means if these two transformative Giants affect one planet in a hard aspect, we will have to deal with both planets making a change-filled aspect as well.  Therefore, I will end this long post by suggesting that if you have some planets in the 6 to 12 degree range of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), then you should have your chart interpreted by a competent astrologer, because there will probably be some significant changes ahead for you.

But this too shall pass.  🙂  So take a deep breath and know that we are doing the best we can with the resources at our disposal.  And it never hurts to ask for support.

Have a great day!  And thank you for reading.

Hello Dear Readers,

First, I realize I need a website. And that project is next on my plate. I have started a Weebly account and will begin progress on a site shortly. However, until that is complete (and very professional / presentable), I will continue to post new developments here.

So work has been slowing down. That is, working for someone else in a job which is difficult on my body. It is a job which requires skillful charm and requisite patience and frankly, I am tired of it (it is waiting tables in an upscale golf-resort / fine dining restaurant). It was enjoyable in December when we were so busy the days just flew by, and the paychecks reflected that busy-ness, but no longer. Hence I intend to be of benefit to many people in a job that I enjoy, which is healthy for my body and which I can sustain with ease and grace.

As many of you may know by now, I have been working closely with the I Ching for the past three plus years, taking time to explore various interpretations of the Book of Changes and to develop a reliable relationship with it. By the way, when I throw the I Ching, I visualize my heart teachers (Tibetan Lamas) and wisdom beings (wisdom deities) present in front and above me, then I picture my question and then I throw the coins. Therefore, I hope that the advice I receive is actually a reflection of what is. I seek to penetrate through pretense and to get underneath what I want (deluded desire) to see the raw truth (sometimes uncomfortable) in that specific situation.

With that said, recently the I Ching gave me the green light to offer Astrology Interpretations to a larger audience. It said that this is a fruitful time for it, and that fruitful times also pass, so get started.

So here is what I am offering in regards to Astrology:
(please visit the Spiritual Astrology category and look at previous posts which describe what the following topics are)

For $125, I offer the following:

Full Natal Astrology Interpretation (90 minutes recorded interpretation) or

Complete Two Year Timing Aspects (90 minutes recorded conversation about the chart’s Transits, Progressions and Solar Arc Directions) or

Full Medical Astrology Interpretation with Medical Astrology Timing Aspects (90 minutes recorded interpretation)

Keep in mind, that while I have been studying Medical Astrology for six years, while also focusing on learning and providing healing facilitation through process-oriented bodywork; I am neither a doctor nor a licensed medical practitioner, so I do not claim to cure, treat, diagnose or prevent any disease. The Medical Astrology interpretation is for educational purposes only.

Relationship Astrology interpretation (90 minutes recorded interpretation) this includes the Chart Synnastry and a detailed explanation of the Composite Chart of two individuals.

For $90, I offer the following:

Relocation Astrology – Astro-carto-graphy and Local Space Astrology (one hour recorded interpretation)

Rectifying the Birth Chart – if the birth time is unknown, we use the process of Rectifying the Birth Time to work backwards using major events in a person’s life to match it up with the proper birth time. (one hour conversation to discern the correct birth time)

Finally I offer individual tutoring in Spiritual Astrology at the rate of $40 per half hour or $65 per hour. Learn how to discern a chart’s basic drives and patterns, look below the surface to see what a chart’s evolutionary background is and look to see how these traits are progressing through the individual’s life with timing aspects.

Again, please visit the Spiritual Astrology category on the right to see previous posts describing each of these areas of what I offer in detail. Also, if these rates are too high, I can compromise to find a good rate for both of us. Do keep in mind however that most of these offerings require three to four hours of my time – counting preparing the charts, reviewing them and then doing the actual recorded in-person or over-the-phone interpretation.

To contact me to set up an interpretation, call me at four three four (area code) four six five zero six zero three. Thank you.

While I have been trained in everything that I mention above, working with several astrologers and mentors over the past seven years, I feel that I excel in a few areas of astrological interpretation. Natal Astrology is the basis of all branches of Western (Spiritual) Astrology, so I feel very confident discussing the intricacies of an individual’s Birth Chart. Then I have spent the most time focusing on the Timing Aspects – the Transits, Progressions and Solar Arc Directions and I am good in the art of predictive astrology (within the bounds of Frequency-Based, Choice-centered Astrology).

Also, on a personal level, I have been seeking a romantic partner who inspires me to be a better human being, one with which I can have a co-creating, provocatively-transformative and an aligned-with-a-potent-spiritual-intention relationship. As a result, I have spent a lot of time looking at relationship astrology charts – primarily for clients professionally, and in my spare time. Therefore I particularly enjoy working with clients for Relationship Astrology interpretations.

And finally, as I have been studying multiple modalities of healing facilitation, such as Reiki Energetic Healing, Craniosacral Biodynamics and Visceral Manipulation, I am also intrigued with Medical Astrology. I find the human body to be a fascinating mystery, which when viewed through the lens of Medical Astrology, begins to be understood in new, dynamic ways. And as a result, I am very happy to do these interpretations with individuals.

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.

Kirby Moore has been studying Western Astrology since 2003, having studied under numerous Western Astrologers with backgrounds in Karmic Astrology, Evolutionary Astrology and Hellenistic Astrology. He sees clients professionally for Spiritual Astrology interpretations both in person and over the phone. His private practice also includes Craniosacral bodywork and healing facilitation through healing touch. To schedule an appointment, you can reach Kirby at the following number in the U.S.: four three four, four six five, zero six zero three. Thank you for reading.
