The task in front of you grows to larger & more complicated proportions before your eyes. Therefore, the first thing you should do to tackle the project is to turn off your computer, grab your gym bag, leave the office or job site, then go to the gym for a long workout with a long cardio & free weight session. Exercise until your body is sore. (“Can I do the steam, sauna, jacuzzi?” Do whatever you like.) Then return to the office or job site & approach the entire conundrum mentally – visually, if possible – but the task at hand may be larger than the scope of your vision. Appraise the scale & the timeframe of the entire project in front of you. Create an outline with plenty of room between headings for all sorts of notes, diagrams, pictures & questions. Unpackage the portmanteau.  

ARIES – Bosses now move extremely cautiously, realizing the complex conundrums which current tasks demand & before any of them can consider efficient out-production. As they look over their current cryptic problems & obstacles, however, they notice how you, uncharacteristically, recoil from people in a hurry, advancing forward on their own excesses of adrenaline. As a result, you attract a new quality of casual attention from such bosses. Don’t by coy – 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon recommend that you tell them what you think, “You, like most bosses, think you are creating the bottleneck proactively for logistic reasons, but a lot of the bottleneck is created by those in a hurry who refuse to be streamlined as they relentlessly seek a more rapid thoroughfare in an extremely limited & narrow matrix.”  

TAURUS – As a part of larger corporate & military initiatives, you, Taurus the Bull, do not care at all about how all the complex & unwieldy puzzle pieces fit together – that’s for bosses to figure out. 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon confirm that all that concerns you is mastering all the details of a very complex environment much faster than anybody else, “Word is just a videogame on my cellphone.”  

GEMINI – Bosses who need innovative solutions to logistic problems have little respect for the free-roaming & inquiring mind of speculative mathematicians & research scientists. However, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon confirm that Gemini the Twin would be both practical & wise to remind such bosses that to think outside the box requires practice – and such practice does not serve the company’s bottom line every day of the week. The company’s bottom line is based upon tried & true ways – but where within the tried & true ways does one get an opportunity to experiment?  

CANCER – Business partners see the complexity of the big picture just as well as you do; however, these business partners are simply naturally more impatient than you, operating on vats of nervous energy. Because, however, all of you will now engage in complex problems with fluid & inexact deployment of human resources,1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon suggest that you advise the more physically active of these business partners to go to the gym & to burn off all excess animal energy so as to still the mind. Make an obtuse joke to settle their nerves & to elicit a laugh, “Ever try to do trigonometry when agitated? It just doesn’t flow!”  

LEO – Do bosses deploy you to a specific role within the current large-scale professional workplace because you are valuable & skilled resource on a crack-level team or because you are one of the bit players requiring stern supervision? 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon will make the answer to that question self-evident. In the former instance, you must prove to bosses that you keep pace with the elite, in the latter instance, you must prove to bosses that you don’t belong amongst the dregs.  

VIRGO – 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon denote that the opportunities for you to influence your bosses will be fleeting, and will only occur as bosses will be openly trying to solve a logistic problem that they cannot, but you can. Until that opportunity presents itself, stay out of bosses’ way.  

LIBRA – Politicians, especially within cities: Money pouring into the municipal budget for infrastructure provides ample opportunities to make political statements about what should happen, instead of what is supposed to happen, and what will actually happen. All that is well & good. However, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon add to such publicity-related opportunities the blunt fact that somebody somewhere within the local government will be stealing money from the till. Learn exactly where you should be pointing your gun.  

SCORPIO – Executives of construction & municipal infrastructure engineering companies: Payroll expenditures for the year have already been projected within the 2022 budget. To forestall potential enormous cost overruns, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon urge you to send out only one project manager to determine the scope of work on each location & the resources needed on all the sites upon which you work. Make sure that this one project manager is the most penny-pinching son-of-a-bitch on the face of God’s green earth. Protect your reputation for spending the money of other people & the government scrupulously & responsibly.  

SAGITTARIUS – You may not get paid until you finish the job. You may be working on several projects simultaneously that you won’t finish anytime soon. However, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon demand that you refrain from the temptation to rush completion in order to get paid – such a tactic will work only once, as you will lose all of the rest of your jobs . . . and your professional reputation.  

CAPRICORN – Whether you are an executive, a financier, a copy or an artist, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon denote that the wide range, both of your professional duties & the locations where you must execute them, make you inconveniently inaccessible to absolutely everybody. Resolve that you will contract all your charges once or twice a day at a very specific time to handle all questions & concerns – not more than five minutes in total. If the situation at hand requires more than that, tell people to send you an email. Keep your hands & your mind free – even & especially of your cell phone.  

AQUARIUS – You do not give a straight answer because you do not have a straight answer to give. And, indeed, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon connote that the inflexible obtuseness of your current communication should tell anybody who asks everything that they need to know. And, in truth, everybody already knows the score, both regarding the situation at hand & their roles within it. Don’t belabor what is obvious.  

PISCES – The source of all Piscean wisdom lies in the fact that Pisces is the only sign of the Zodiac which realizes that it does not know everything. Now, you, amongst many of your colleagues & bosses, do not fully understand the scope of the project at hand – none of your colleagues & bosses do – but you alone feel comfortable with that. Amidst all that uncertainty & lack of knowledge, 1996-TR66, Thereus, 2002-GZ32, Jupiter, Uranus, Vesta, Venus, Mars, Echeclus, Rhadamanthus, Varuna, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, 2002-VR130, Saturn, 2000-QB243 & the New Aquarius Moon put Pisces & everybody else, here, now. There is no pattern into which to fall; there is no routine to which one must adapt. One must be ready for whatever might happen at any time – and this plays to Pisces’ strength: Pisces is always well aware that anything can happen.  

(a) 1996-TR66 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on October 8, 1996.  

(b) Thereus, a centaur planet that traverses the orbit of Saturn, was discovered in August 2001 & named in June 2003. Thereus was a centaur who hunted bears which, upon capture, he carried home alive. For information on how to interpret Thereus, formerly 2001-PT13, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

(c) 2002-GZ32 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on April 13, 2002. The orbit of 2002-GZ32 traverses across the orbit of Uranus and just before the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2002-GZ32, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

@ Vesta, the brightest of the four major asteroids and the fourth to be discovered in 1807, is named after the goddess of the sacred fire within the hearth of ancient Rome, for whom the vestal virgins who named. The sacred fire represented the manifestation of the gods on earth, as well as how human sexuality (which vestal virgins indulged only during solstices) forms a bridge from human mortality to divine immortality.  

% Echeclus, a centaur planet that traverses from the orbit of Jupiter to the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in March 2000 & named in February 2006. Echeclus, in the battle fought between the Centaurs & the Lapiths, died as the Lapith Ampyx threw his spear without a tip directly into Echeclus's face as Echeclus was attacking Ampyx at full gallop. For information on how to interpret Echeclus, formerly 2000-EC98, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

! Rhadamanthus is a transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on April 17, 1999. Rhadamanthus, along with Minos, his brother by way of Zeus & Europa, served as judges of the dead in the underworld. Tentative possible interpretations of planet Rhadamanthus by esoteric astrologers note tendencies towards severity, as well as unexpected, covert oversight by those who hold ultimate power.  

# Varuna, the official name bestowed upon 2000-WR106 as of March 2001, is the first transneptunian object (TNO) to receive a name. In Indian mythology, Varuna is the keeper of “rta” (the cosmic order); in modern astronomy, some astronomers & astrologers believe that Varuna begins a drastic redefinition of the solar system suggested by the recent demotion of Pluto as a planet.

> 2002-PN34 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on August 6, 2002. The orbit of 2002-PN34 traverses from within the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto. For information on how to interpret 2002-PN34, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

^ 2002-VR130 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on November 7, 2002. The orbit of 2002-VR130 commences beyond the orbit of Saturn as it crosses over the orbit of Uranus & Neptune.

? 2000-QB243 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on August 25, 2000. The orbit of 2000-QB243 traverses from within the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto.

ARTICLE #2

Uranus in Taurus, stationing from Retrograde1 to Direct Motion1, trines2 Venus in Capricorn, stationing from Retrograde1 to Direct Motion1, from January 18 to February 13, 2022. From the Twenties to the Forties artists outside the inner circle of painters & sculptors making excellent money & press selling their work within art galleries would band together as a (group) (posse) (gang) to declare a “manifesto” – after all, communism remained a fairly credible & popular notion, despite J. Edgar Hoover’s Red Scare in the Twenties, until the rise of Republican Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy after World War II. Some artists, like Robert Motherwell, a blue blood living off a generous stipend from his father, took such “manifestoes” as seriously as any other marketing plan – but, in the end, Motherwell knew how to behave in public. Other artists, like Jackson Pollock, not a blue blood at all but an anti-social alcoholic, tended to take the press about him more seriously – but did Pollock know how to behave in public? Not so much.  

ARIES – Artists, curators, patrons: Distance yourself from artists who confuse fame & wealth. Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, state that some artists believe that if they blow the public’s mind, the money will follow. That is not the case at all – the money will come only after the artist kills himself & becomes “a living legend who died before their time.” The story is tired but it will repeat itself – but you need legitimate business now, as a normal & healthy human being. Disassociate proactively.  

TAURUS – After Herman Melville found out that the masterpiece into which he poured his soul, Moby Dick, represented a critical & financial failure, he got a job at the U.S. Customs House & disavowed his career as a writer. To that end, Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, remind Taurus the Bull, “Hold onto your day job.” Admit it: Nobody alive will understand anything that you say right now. Earn money through quotidian work. While away the ages.  

GEMINI – Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, encourage Twin investors to talk with their broker to acquire a limited position on cryptocurrency. Don’t bet the bank – but be ready to augment or to offload on short notice.  

CANCER – Your spouse or lover is developing an infatuation with a friend or associate based upon intellect & humor. Conversely, Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, remind the Crab of how Kim Kardashian locked Kanye West out of her home hearing West’s song about beating up Pete Davidson. Enough said.  

LEO – Is there a change in leadership in the offing at your professional workplace? Perhaps, perhaps not. However, anyway that you look at it, Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, assert that employees will not work under one boss will outperform under another – and vice versa.  

VIRGO – Coaches: Certain athletes, by themselves, at will, can take your team to the Super Bowl, the World Series, the Stanley Cup, the NBA Finals – but only, as Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, qualify, if they so choose. Your mission: Determine if you are dealing with a temperamental, willful yet sane genius or an outright head case.  

LIBRA – Politicians: When one holds political power, it is extremely important that one’s spouse satisfy one sexually. Otherwise, Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, guarantee that sex is bait in a trap.  

SCORPIO – Business partners, vendors & lawyers really don’t want to send out a bill, then wait to get paid. Ensure their loyalty: Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, advise you to pay them before they do one thing for you. And don’t complain: Scorpio never gives money to those whom they do not trust!  

SAGITTARIUS – Management consultants: If your upgrades, whatever they may be, take very little time, but improves your client’s productivity & profit margin exponentially – well, guess what? Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, reply, “You will not be charging by the hour.” And there you have it.  

CAPRICORN – Artists, sculptors, producers: Hey! Did you see the parade of Pharaohs of ancient Egypt through the streets of Cairo during early April 2021? Did you see the remodeled Boulevard of remodeled & renovated Boulevard of Sphinxes in the modern Egyptian city of Luxor, formerly the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, reopened by the Government of Egypt in November 2021? Two once-in-a-lifetime events in one year! But, then again, the nation of Egypt has a lot of material on which to draw – and myriad resources with which to display it. That being said, Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, quote the words of Frank Zappa, a retold by Ian Underwood, on "Ian Underwood Whips It Out" off Uncle Meat by Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention, “What can you do that’s fantastic?” (“Wowie Zowie.”)  

AQUARIUS – James Joyce’s Ulysses is about one day in the life of Leopold Bloom of Dublin, Ireland. The lead character of Carlos Fuentes’ Where the Air is Clear is the metropolis of Mexico City. Hugh MacLennan’s Barometer Rising is about the defining karmic moment in the history of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Halifax Explosion. When a writer, painter or filmmaker produces a work of art about your city, state or province, Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, wonder if a local critic, or you yourself, will approve – or sneer as they quote from Hugh Selwyn Mauberly by Ezra Pound, “The case presents no adjunct to the muses’ diadem.”  

PISCES Allmusic’s Thom Jurek, former music critic of the Detroit Metro Times, could confer no deeper blessing upon jazz flautist Yusef Lateef’s tribute to his hometown, Yusef Lateef's Detroit: Latitude 42° 30′ Longitude 83', than by calling it “his most misunderstood album.” Uranus & Venus, both stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion, only hope & pray that enough of the faithful will want to hear this forgotten album – if only . . . to understand.

1 Planets either move forward, in which case they orbit in Direct Motion, or move backward, in which case they orbit in Retrograde Motion. Planets in Direct Motion seek to make progress, while Planets in Retrograde Motion seek to redress past imbalances.  

2 A Trine is a harmonious aspect between or amongst planets transiting signs of like element (elements being Fire, Earth, Air & Water).

Pluto conjunct1 Amycus* in Capricorn trines2 the North Node$ in Taurus from January 8 to March 22, 2022. “Fiscal conservatism” is more popular now because so many people could make no money during the COVID-19 quarantine non-economy. However, “fiscal conservatism,” like many doctrines, beliefs & disciplines, ascends & descends in stages. One passes through “Fiscal Conservatism 101” when they are $50,000 in debt, earn $21,000 a year & make excuses to the landlord for the late rent. Many women graduate to “Fiscal Conservatism 201” when they discover that their fiancée has saved enough for a house & can settle down to get married – which induces these women to save much more money much quicker for their as-yet unannounced wedding! Both parents graduate to “Fiscal Conservatism 301” at the birth of their first child as their financial advisor informs both of them at their baby shower of the price of a college education. “Fiscal Conservatism 401” sets in when grandparents, still working at 67 years old before living off pensions, 401Ks and IRAs, decide whether they wish to live anyplace where it might snow. Conversely, business owners, no matter how old, learn everything that they need from “Crash Course in Fiscal Conservatism” when they have zero clients & an insurmountable mountain of low-grade, past-due debt.  

ARIES – The number of people hired or laid off at your company is an economic indicator to those investors not employed by that company. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node urge you to pay attention to the economic indicators which ultimately influence the number of people hired or laid off at your company – new clients, clients going bankrupt, international business treatises amongst governments, the price of raw materials. Look at the causes before you endure the effects.  

TAURUS – You held onto your money when cash was extremely liquid and now find yourself ahead of the game as less money is readily available. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node note that this is the real reason why Taurus has reputation for being good with money – because they hold onto it tightly in a strong fist.  

GEMINI – Strong savings, including money in pensions, 401Ks or IRAs, puts you in a position where you don’t need so much cash on hand. Conversely, as you come into contact with people who need cash immediately, Pluto, Amycus & the North Node make you realize that such people have no money besides what they have in their pockets & checking account – perhaps because they hemorrhage cash on illegal drugs, booze, whores or gambling. Identify attitudes towards cash as indicators of other anti-social misbehavior.

CANCER – A spouse or business partner keeps conservative friendships not because they are networking with plutocrats. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node signify that your spouse, partner & friends are protecting themselves & you from people & ideals that might lose all of you money. This is not a good offense – this is strictly defense.  

LEO – Continue to train employees in ways favored by bosses. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node know that your bosses favor employees who not only work hard but who, like bosses themselves, consider how to save money & to consolidate their actions & efforts for the good of the firm.  

VIRGO – Pluto, Amycus & the North Node denote that the key to long-term high-volume sales lies in appraising quality & maintaining integrity. Distinguish the best from the garden variety – and never try to pass off garden variety as the best. Give a fair price for the best – but be generous with the garden variety. Listen to feedback.  

LIBRA – Everybody knows what you need to reverse your city’s misfortunes – but somebody who claims that they know who is putting up the money to make that happen will let you in on the deal through the side door. Is this offer genuine? It does not matter – Pluto, Amycus & the North Node all say, “Decline.” Any way that you look at it, somebody is trying to set you up because they think that you are weak. Shun such treachery.  

SCORPIO – Stockbrokers think like this, “This stock is listed at X. Is this stock worth X? If not, is it worth my time to trade on the differential?” Pluto, Amycus & the North Node tersely codify this extremely volatile profession because you, as an owner, must appraise what you own, like a stockbroker with no interest in the property appraised. This is not a sales price. For internal purposes only!  

SAGITTARIUS – Do not approach your need for employment as a job but as a bank loan. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node posit, “If you work at a job for three years to save enough money for (graduate school) (downpayment on a condo) (construction of your music studio) (a trip around the world), then doing the actual job . . . represents interest on the capital.”  

CAPRICORN – The content of the charcoal drawings of Robert Longo often mirrors narratives of early 20th century author John Dos Passos as they represent a view of contemporary American history. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node declare that you too can include contemporary historical content & commentary in your artwork & writing. Don’t hesitate to start small. Build, then clarify, a vision.  

AQUARIUS – Talk to those old-timers who lived through historic episodes where the city in which you all live had changed. Pluto, Amycus & the North Node recommend that you leave American history for high school teachers. What you want to hear may be published in no book but only in the newspapers of the day. Get the true skinny from the horse’s mouth.  

PISCES – You hear that somebody who owes you money may be going bankrupt. Don’t be shy – Pluto, Amycus & the North Node implore you to go straight to them & to demand your money. Expect resistance. Appraise their psychology to determine if they may commit suicide. Consider settling for 75 cents on a dollar without dealing with a lawyer. Realize that you may never be able to approach this individual directly again.  

* Amycus, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Uranus & Neptune between the orbit of Saturn & the more remote portion of the orbit of Pluto, was discovered in April 2002 and named in December 2005. Amycus was the first centaur to engage in battle with the Lapiths by smashing the face of the Lapith Celadon with a candelabrum stripped from the inmost wedding shrine. For information on how to interpret 2002-GB10, formerly Amycus, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

$ The North Node and the South Node, or the Nodes of the Moon, represent current & past life karma, respectively, according to astrologer Martin Schulman.

ARTICLE #4

Venus in Capricorn, stationing from Retrograde1 to Direct Motion1, sextiles2 Okyrhoe* in Pisces from January 13 to February 21, 2022. Older, more sophisticated women (perhaps but not necessarily cougars) enamored of new romances (perhaps but not necessarily with younger men) offer younger, less experienced women unsolicited (perhaps but not necessarily unwanted) advice about “men.” Is this advice really about (ahem!), “men,” per se? (“I’m so sorry, my Latin is weak!”) Is this advice about money? Is this advice about love? What, exactly, does this advice specifically address? Is all this blah, blah, blah just an excuse for two women to bond?

ARIES – You see an older & a younger woman bonding at lunch in a café, speaking frankly, offering & taking advice, gesticulating, laughing, and you wonder, “Why is that not me?” Because, as Venus & Okyrhoe respond directly, “You don’t need what those two women need.” You know what you need; you know what you must do to get it; you do what you have to do. Nothing more is necessary.  

TAURUS – Marisa Ramirez as NYPD Detective Maria Baez & Vanessa Ray as NYPD Police Officer Eddie Janko on Blue Bloods are amongst the most fascinating female characters on television because the men with whom they work & whom they deeply admire, Donny Wahlberg as Danny Reagan & Will Estes as Jamie Reagan, respectively, are both, in their points of view, blind. Venus & Okyrhoe state that what makes Detective Baez & Office Janko such well-rounded characters is not that they are both hard-boiled New York City cops but because the men they love & admire always surprise them: Great men are not always wise.

GEMINI – Young bosses: Venus & Okyrhoe warn that running too high a personal debt can jeopardize your professional position, whether directly or indirectly. Get expenditures & deficits back under iron-fisted control.  

CANCER – Venus & Okyrhoe state than you need not read either Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlett Letter or Sinclair Lewis’s Elmer Gantry to know that the pursuit of spirituality within a group does not connote romance – or, more bluntly, illicit sex – with the pastor or youth minister. For the greater glory of God – get it?  

LEO – Trying to go down & dirty in a work colleague’s underpants connotes seduction, and suggests sexual harassment. Worse yet, Venus & Okyrhoe further posit that to get that seduced work colleague to help the mastermind cheat, remain perpetually absent from the workplace, commit forgery, fraud, embezzlement or burglary connotes corruption, denotes criminality and suggests moral bankruptcy. Don’t be naïve – and don’t let your colleagues or employees be willfully naive, either.  

VIRGO – So your spouse told you that your daughter is dating the school’s star jock, eh? Well, congratulations to her. As for yourself, Venus & Okyrhoe recommend that you invite the school’s star jock young man over for dinner – just the four of you on “a double date.” Let Mom supervise how your little princess behaves with her young suitor in public during meals. As for the school’s star jock young man: Dad will get to know him.  

LIBRA – Bosses, managers: A new young female rookie employee is doing the best she can, and a decent job at that, but she sort of looks lost, as if she is floating on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Venus & Okyrhoe state that what this young female rookie requires is the existence of a “personal connection” – not the connection itself but merely the possibility of one. The perfect antidote: Discuss the mundane chores that you & your spouse do for the family.  

SCORPIO – One sharp, delightfully smug employee of the opposite gender in your workgroup thinks it is seriously hot how you issue direct yet sarcastic orders. Do they want to date you? Venus & Okyrhoe agree that the last thing you need is a sexual harassment lawsuit. Don’t jump to conclusions – but don’t accelerate this intermediate phase, either.  

SAGITTARIUS – Your daughter is aware that you now consider expanding the number of rooms in your home for both your home office & a room for a family elder – which is why she has been hinting that she needs more privacy. Venus & Okyrhoe note that you picked up on your daughter’s new buzzword – but you also wonder, “Just how much privacy does my daughter really need right now?”  

CAPRICORN – You may be eager to give a young friend or colleague some advice on men or money – Venus & Okyrhoe advise that you wait for them to ask you for it first. Once they do, do not talk interminably about all different unrelated types of advice. Consolidate, then cultivate, a meaningful mentoring rapport.  

AQUARIUS – A female colleague without a lot of allies who endures psychological issues around wealth & poverty wants to hang out with your clique. As for yourself, you are indifferent – but Venus & Okyrhoe notice how your friends are skeptical, unreceptive & borderline hostile. Address this female colleague bluntly in front of your friends, “You seem to have psychological issues around money – Lord knows we all have issues about something!” Forestall the onset of mockery to make this colleague welcome.  

PISCES – Your emotions about a potential or actual lover overlap with your knowledge about their financial & professional situation, and you are confused – this is why you seek an older, wiser person’s advice. While this older, wiser person’s advice might help, Venus & Okyrhoe remind you that your awareness of such emotions & knowledge do not give you all the information necessary to make a decision. Pisces is the sign best suited to live with uncertainty – and this nascent romance plays to those strengths. Enjoy the growth experience!  

* Okyrhoe, a centaur planet that traverses between the orbits of Jupiter & Saturn, was discovered in September 1998 & named in June 2003. Okyrhoe (meaning “rapid flow”), the daughter of Chiron & Chariklo, had offended the Fates by using her gift of prophesy. Okyrhoe transformed into a mare and was given the new name Hippe. For information on how to interpret Okyrhoe, formerly 1998-SG35, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #5

Ceres* conjuncts# the North Node$ in Taurus from December 23, 2021 to February 9, 2022. The position of the U.S. Federal Government under President Joe Biden regarding COVID-19 as of the end of 2021 is that the U.S. will manage through vaccinations, but not quarantines & lockdowns. By making that decision, President Biden has committed his administration to recalibrating the U.S. money supply & the economy after some eighteen months of lucrative unemployment assistance for a vast swath of the population, in addition to all types of financial & payroll assistance to small businesses throughout the country. The expenditure of cash reached such a height that apocalyptic (in some cases, wishful) thinking postulated the collapse of the primacy of the U.S. dollar. One thing that such an expenditure of government-manufactured cash did was to including America’s debasement from a producer nation to a consumer nation – in many instances, turning some of these individuals obese overnight like an all-you-can-eat frenzy of white carbs at your local Olive Garden. Now that President Biden has committed to paying off that debt so that America can once again become a producer nation, individuals who became gluttonously accustomed to government money must now detox & diet from all those white carb dollars, shedding fat, consolidating their distended stomachs, and taking positive action to earn a dollar . . . at its real value.  

ARIES – If you worked through all of the COVID-19 quarantine, simply pay your debt as fast as you can – more money is coming next paycheck. However, if you are still looking for work as your U.I ran out in September, then Ceres & the North Node instructs you to bite the bullet as you continue to look. Long story short, you should still have money on which to live – and you will garner no sympathy if you don’t.  

TAURUS – Flaunting aggression while feeling physically weak is strategically stupid. Risking money when you are cash poor & overleveraged is self-destructively reckless. Ceres & the North Node states that, just because your position is weak does not suggest that you are not self-sufficient – it merely means that you will only be able to do more & to influence circumstances more after you get physically & financially stronger.  

GEMINI – Whether you are a retail merchant, newspaper person or local musician, Ceres & the North Node declares that you now should be cash poor because circumstances have not empowered you for many consecutive months. There is no shame in that.  

CANCER – Show no disrespect to the currently unemployed. Ceres & the North Node reminds the Crab that we all fall upon hard times. That unemployed person is looking for, and will get, work – and, as long as they behave respectfully, you should honor their sovereignty.  

LEO – Bosses cannot act upon their pet agendas because COVID-19 forced them over budget. Therefore, Ceres & the North Node signifies that you would be conspicuously presumptuous to ask such bosses for favors.  

VIRGO – Students: If you don’t have the money to pay for tuition, then Ceres & the North Node recommends that you wait until you have accumulated the necessary funds. As for those looking to self-publish their book or CD – who exactly do you expect to buy them in this economy?  

LIBRA – So the stock in your 401K or IRA, or just outright naked stock, plummeted in market value recently – but you didn’t sell it at a loss, did you? The local municipality did not appraise your house or condo for as much as when you bought it five years ago – but you didn’t sell that at a loss either, did you? Ceres & the North Node reminds the skittish & impatient Libran that certain assets invariably go up over time. (You do have time, don’t you?)  

 SCORPIO – A spouse or partner seems cash poor, exhausted & annoyed. To assuage the burden of their plight, Ceres & the North Node advises the sensitive & loving Scorpion to lament, openly, their inability buy themselves a slice of pizza, “Probably just as well – it looks like if you ate a slice of pizza, you’d just get sick." To which your partner would reply, “It wouldn’t be the pizza – it’d be the company.” They’ll be back to 100% soon enough!  

SAGITTARIUS – Ceres & the North Node asserts that you are sick for a good reason. After prolonged & protracted frenetic activity, the body needs rest – copious rest. Take the hint.  

CAPRICORN – Artists, writers: Certain loves songs by Stevie Nicks – “Stand Back,” “Edge of Seventeen,” “Long Distance Winner” – can convince the listener that they are not just casually grooving on soft rock but are engaged in a life-or-death struggle. Ceres & the North Node dare the Goat, “Are you capable of creating a work of art which changes the lives of those who appreciate it?” One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez!  

AQUARIUS – You have the strangest, strongest emotional response to turning up the heat in your apartment or home. Indeed, Ceres & the North Node notice that you actually physically care for, and about, the building in which you live. “Really,” you ask yourself, “can I feel affection for a large inanimate object designed by architects & engineers?”  

PISCES – A lot of people owe you money – and you need the money. Ceres & the North Node encourage you to request that they repay the money they owe you. If they say, “I can’t at the moment,” ask them when they will be able to do so. Be civil. Be cordial. Be firm.  

* Ceres, the largest asteroid & the first to be discovered in 1801, is named for the goddess of agriculture whose daughter Persephone suffered forcible & eternal abduction by Pluto, lord of the underworld. As such, Ceres rules not only the Cancerian emotion of empathy & the maternal functions of nurturing, but also the production & distribution of food through agriculture & labor – as well as the halting of such production & distribution through organized strikes of labor.

$ The North Node and the South Node, or the Nodes of the Moon, represent current & past life karma, respectively, according to astrologer Martin Schulman. Astronomically, the North Node & the South Node are the two points at which the Moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic, setting a timetable for large-scale Solar & Lunar Eclipses over time.

# A Conjunction is a harmonious aspect wherein two or more planets meet as they transit the same sign.  

ARTICLE #6

Pholus< conjunct1 2002-GZ32> in Capricorn sextles2 Jupiter in Pisces from January 12 to February 16, 2022. All those companies, bosses & employees who think that working remotely at home is an excellent solution to all sorts of problems will endure the prioritization of their lifetimes when a boss in the office tells an employee in front of his or her computer to do something important at the same time that that employee’s spouse, mother or elderly, incapacitated grandparent demands something equally or more important – simultaneously. These are individuals within their domain accustomed to getting their way. Will anybody want to explain to the unemployment office how a boss who threatened, “Do this now or you are fired!” heard that employee’s spouse, mother or elderly, incapacitated grandparent reply, “Take your job & shove it – sideways!”? That’s not sexual harassment in my home, buddy!  

ARIES – Read Scorpio. Bosses: Rely much more on personnel currently in the office than those working remotely at home. While COVID-19 demands a hybrid environment, Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter suggest that too hybrid an environment turns the workplace into either Seattle’s Pike Place Market or The Beatles’ animated movie Yellow Submarine – with, potentially, too much ethnic flavor. Conduct the activity where you can control the flow.  

TAURUS – Law enforcement: Even in bars, restaurants & stores where legal trouble happens routinely, Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter demand that you let the proprietor or manager do things as they see fit. When they call you for a specific incident, and solve the problem, try to get the proprietor or manager calm enough to enter into a discussion . . . about what they might want to do differently.  

GEMINI – Investors: Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter encourage you to talk to brokers about how, not just to create enough, but how to maximize diversity within your portfolio. Not everything goes up at once – that’s why hedge funds play crosscurrents to make constant profit.  

CANCER – Given that your spouse must work with & in charge of a lot of different groups who rarely communicate with each other, except through your spouse, Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter encourage you to go on vacation with your spouse to a number of countries in a relatively small area perfect for a long weekend: Montevideo on Thursday, Buenos Aires on Saturday. For a week: Western Africa. Expand the worldviews as you contract the space.  

LEO – All the employees in your different workgroups must still deal with different departments in your company – human resources, payroll, accounting. Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter encourage you to ask all employees in all groups how their communication with such core operational facilities in your company respond to their needs.  

VIRGO – Athletes, student athletes: Yes, it can be very easy to fool certain parents or authority figures. But Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter all agree: Blow it once, and you have lost all trust – and they will teach you how difficult & complicated life can be when authority figures do not trust you.  

LIBRA – Managers working remotely or hybrid: You think, “When the cat is away, the mice will play.” Well, Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter state that your employees know the type of boss & person that you are. Whether you are a draconian sadist or devil-may-care until outright deviant, they know who you are – and they are self-protective enough to survive. Regard them as true humans for best results.  

SCORPIO – Read Aries. Unlike when you supervise a number of different extremely talented individuals, who resent you for your didacticism, the mutual experience that you have supervising & directing different workgroups is an absolute joy. As far as you are concerned, Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter could make you the admiral of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine or the landlord of Seattle’s Pike Place Market – and everyone who ever comes in contact with you would agree, “That individual is a legend in their own time.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Home construction done to accommodate, not only your nuclear family, but most importantly elderly family members who require special services, cannot all be completed at once because of the arduous scale & series of expenses. For that reason, Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter demand that you prioritize your expenditures as early as possible – long before you approach an impasse in your actual budget.  

CAPRICORN – Innocent souls who come to you for mundane advice, a shoulder on which to cry or a hand to hold have no idea of what you are really thinking. Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter state that this disturbs you much more than it does them – they don’t even notice. Try to involve yourself more in the current moment.  

AQUARIUS – You are simply spooled that there is seating for 120 in your office where five people show up every day. Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter make you fear that COVID-19 is warping your sensibility – but you really are looking too deeply into it. Write science fiction which depicts the exact same scenario for a different reason.  

PISCES – Certain associates accustomed to networking politically within your office are absolutely lost now. Pholus, 2002-GZ32 & Jupiter state that this is why these associates cling to you now. You know this – in the recent past, you were one of many. These associates believe that, somehow, you have an advantage over your colleagues that you can exploit. Tell these individuals, “Don’t take the influence of any other people too seriously.”  

< Pholus, named after the centaur who accidentally died because mighty Hercules was thirsty, was discovered in 1992 & named in 1996. Pholus bridges the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Neptune, forcing us mere mortals to realize that even our most severe discipline is worthless when God wishes to teach us a lesson.  

> 2002-GZ32 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on April 13, 2002. The orbit of 2002-GZ32 traverses across the orbit of Uranus and just before the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2002-GZ32, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

Mercury in Aquarius & Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion1 from January 14 to February 5, 2022. Whatever unexpected news happens as Uranus in Taurus stationing from Retrograde1 to Direct Motion1 squares2 Mercury in Aquarius stationing from Direct1 to Retrograde Motion1 from January 11 to 18, 2022, it will pique investment in & divestment from the capital markets. There will then follow copious news coverage upon how to capitalize upon or to protect one’s self from such trends as Retrograde1 Mercury conjuncts3 the Sun in Aquarius on January 23 & 24, 2022, “Whatever advice you give, I will do it (as Chariklo* conjuncts3 the Sun in Aquarius on January 25, 2022) tomorrow first thing!” But educated economists will soon explain, “It is not as simple as that.” Resources not ruled directly by markets underlie such trends – the temperature of water, air quality, the ability to place solid foundations into certain types of soil, the number of college graduates specializing in a specific subject. None of this is a no-brainer. None of this happens because a plutocrat snaps his fingers.  

ARIES – Make it happen! Just do it! Retrograde Mercury laughs, “Remember that story where Dallas Cowboy Coach Jimmy Johnson asked an offensive tackle if he could walk on the 2 X 4 lying on the floor of his office? When that offensive tackle said, ‘Yes,” Coach Jimmy hung the 2 X 4 from the ceiling on a string so that it twirled around in a circle – then Coach Jimmy said, ‘Walk on that 2 X 4!’ When that offensive tackle objected, Coach Jimmy said, ‘You told me you could do it!’”  

TAURUS – People who overhear your conversation about the capital markets will now make stock trades based upon it. Therefore, Retrograde Mercury urges you only to discuss either generalities or entities in which you will not invest or from which you will not divest. Let nosy fools make their own mistakes.  

GEMINI – People make a lot of money-making mistakes buying tech stocks while other people lost a lot of money making intelligent correct maneuvers about Chinese companies, all over the past year. Retrograde Mercury will now balance many scales & upset the equilibrium of many others. Be as smart as you like – it’s still all a crap shoot.  

CANCER – A younger, very bright investor argues their point, perhaps against you or against the position of the market. Retrograde Mercury smiles. Tell them, “You can still lose a lot of money when you are right when all those people who are wrong invest in what they believe.” This is not sarcasm – this is democratic capitalism.  

LEO – Your hot shot business partner screwed up massively, so bosses decided to chew both of you out. Just smile – Retrograde Mercury dares you to tell such bosses, “Hey, relax! My team can fix it.” And they can. Sell what you want them to buy!  

VIRGO – A work colleague gets fired & arrested for stealing equipment. Too bad! But not really. Retrograde Mercury suggests, “As a result, you may get a promotion.” Leverage unexpected advantages.  

LIBRA – Stop trying to get people to vote for you! You can get anybody to vote for you – you are charm personified. Retrograde Mercury advises you to focus upon the second part of the equation, “Do people think you can do the job?”  

SCORPIO – You have had to watch what you say for the past three years & it has pissed you off to no end. Retrograde Mercury induces you to say whatever you like for as long as you want to say it – and to repeat it if you damned well please!  

SAGITTARIUS – A colleague told a boss that your joke offended them & the boss fired you. Retrograde Mercury is curious. Do you regret it? Are you secretly relieved? Once the emotion clears, talk to those who would know – lawyers, if possible – to ask if such a joke merited dismissal. If not, find a job somewhere else where employers & employees are much less uptight.  

CAPRICORN – Movie & TV producers: You lost a lot of money on something you thought would be a blockbuster? Retrograde Mercury advises that you take another look at it. Determine if what you did is worth Business Plan #B.  

AQUARIUS – Whether or not you lost any contests, elections, investments, clients or money, Retrograde Mercury nevertheless announces, “The winning streak which started as Jupiter in Aquarius turned to Direct Motion in late October is now over!” Take a bow. The once & future champion!  

PISCES – Undeclared enemies lose big! You don’t care. Retrograde Mercury knows that the Fish eschews reckless high-stakes gambling. New associates admire your placidity & the acute penetration of your steady insight. Make alliances with such admirers. Seek ways to invest upon insights borne of emotional & psychological equilibrium.

* Chariklo, named after the wife of the centaur Chiron who enjoyed a close friendship with Pallas Athena, was discovered in February 1997 & named in September 1999. Chariklo helps Chiron to bridge the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Uranus, reminding us that we have to employ vision, perception & imagination when we find no leeway & no loopholes in the entrenched status quo.

Venus in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion* from December 18, 2021 to January 30, 2022. As everybody, consciously or (much more prevalently) unconsciously prepared for the U.S.A Pluto Return on February 21, 2022, July 11, 2022 and December 28, 2022, there was a massive outburst of pure judgment of everything in American history during the COVID-19 summer of 2020 – especially after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands marched in Black Lives Matters protests, thousands of whom rioted after the sun went down in a score of American cities & Black Lives Matters protests ended. Then, months later, during the beginning of 2021, hundreds of supporters of President Donald J. Trump attacked the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6. Now, as the U.S.A. Pluto Return comes closer, more & more people, judge themselves, and each other, as American history, as they judge whether other people possess the right to judge other people in American history, as American history, after what other people have recently said & done.  

ARIES – People used to ask, “Where were you when JFK was assassinated?” with the understanding that they could not know it was happening, could not participate & only learned second-hand. A similar scenario predominated during the attacks on the World Trade Center & the Pentagon soon after September 11, 2001 – unless one lived in New York City or Washington D.C. Retrograde Venus insists that the riots during the summer of 2020 & the attacks on the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021 were an entirely different phenomenon. People no longer wanted to watch it on TV or by surfing the Internet – they wanted to participate. The courts may determine who amongst them had skin in the game – but, until then, watch the consequences of their actions reverberate upon them.  

TAURUS – Political divisiveness in the U.S.A. induces partisans to say that the rioters on the other side of their ideological agenda, whether Black Lives Matters rioter or U.S. Capitol Building insurrectionists, got off easy – but they are all getting slaps on their wrists. Retrograde Venus dares such loudmouths to consider J.J. Foley’s in South Boston where the Boston Police Department tried to organize into unions during the Boston Police Strike of 1919 – those union organizers received the most severe punishment an Irishman could get: Neither they nor anybody in the subsequent bloodlines, in perpetuity, were allowed to serve in the BPD for the rest of eternity.  

GEMINI – Lessons about money: If you are young, you learn them, and, if you are old, you should teach them. Then again, Retrograde Venus will bring up uncomfortable episodes to remind you that you do not want to, should not, or cannot, teach what you learned because others cannot hear what you say no matter how clearly you say it. Identify the cryptic idiosyncrasies.

CANCER – If you are still in litigation with your ex-spouse after the divorce, particularly involving parental rights, then Retrograde Venus reminds you that you have a vested interest in demonizing them. Consequently, you will pay a lawyer for the right to become an emotional tyrant. Have you examined how mean-spirited this dysfunctional dynamic really is?  

LEO – While you personally & professionally like to keep your head down & mind your own business, you notice how certain bosses within your firm play favorites & treat certain hard-working employees deeply unfairly. You’re not inclined to speak up because it only complicates your life & makes no difference – but Retrograde Venus suggests that this instance is different. At a certain point, what is really unfair becomes morally indecent. You really don’t care how bosses act as a result of what you say – you only want them to be ashamed of themselves.  

VIRGO – News of a former outstanding local athlete who committed crimes & went to jail horrifies you & your family – as it should. Retrograde Venus compels you to review all the damage done. Realize the good that this individual should have accomplished. Redress your own moral relativism & lax virtue.  

LIBRA – In his novel World’s End, T. Corraghessan Boyle recounts in parallel successive chapters, how the bad karma of the rich Van Wart family & the supplicant Van Brunt family in the mid-Eighties originated with the respective families of American settlers in their bloodline in the mid-17th century Peekskill, New York. Retrograde Venus now exhorts the philosophically ponderous Libran to review, read or reread this modern masterpiece in light of the upcoming U.S.A. Pluto Return. If the bloodline forms our character, and character is fate, is not our bloodline the prime indicator of our fate. Moreover, don’t just judge the Wan Warts & the Van Brunts, or your own family fates – take a look back & consider, as you look in the mirror, how you resemble grandpa.  

SCORPIO – Very early in The Who’s career, Roger Daltrey led the band instead of Pete Townsend – until Townsend & John Entwhistle threw Daltrey out of the band for beating up Keith Moon. Retrograde Venus states that the fact that the band remained intact communicates a moral lesson for everybody: There is a way to handle power trips. There is a way to punish, and to forgive, bad behavior.  

SAGITTARIUS – Laws against vice automatically raise the market price of the outlawed substance or service. Criminals, including drug dealers & pimps, trade on this differential. Cops target those who supply this market as those who exploit moral weakness for financial gains. But Retrograde Venus notes that the infrastructure of this legal & economic relationship is more enduring than the sun & the moon. The only question: Where do you stand? Can you live with what you do & have done?  

CAPRICORN – Due to the historic transits of so many planets & centaurs in Capricorn, the Goat who faced the Eighties as a full-grown adult has undergone more personal transformations than one spending five minutes under a kaleidoscopic spotlight in a psychedelic video. Therefore, Retrograde Venus decides, because you are still a fully grown adult, to sing, “Teach the Children,” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young . . . just for you, “You, who are on the road, must have a code, that you can live by.”  

AQUARIUS – While there may indeed be certain executives at Google that are making plans for the year 2274, truth be told, Google – or, for that matter, Amazon – might not last until 2040. Retrograde Venus knows that you, the Waterbearer, believe it. The World Trade Center fell. The Soviet Union collapsed. Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. Mike Tyson blew through $300 million. And O.J. lost it all. Pride goeth before a fall. Pride goeth before a fall.

PISCES – A friend or ally that you have silently judged for many moons now undergoes a downfall, and comes to you for reassurance, friendship or help. Whether you decide to give any of the above is really your business – but Retrograde Venus says that you will communicate a message when you sing “Razor Boy” by Steely Dan, “Will you still have a song to sing when the razor boy comes & takes your fancy things away?”  

* Planets either move forward, in which case they orbit in Direct Motion, or move backward, in which case they orbit in Retrograde Motion. Planets in Direct Motion seek to make progress, while Planets in Retrograde Motion seek to redress past imbalances.

Mars transits Capricorn from January 24 to March 5, 2022. The Military Junta of Brazil of August 31, 1969 amongst Army General Aurélio de Lira Tavares, Air Force General Márcio Melo, and Navy Admiral Augusto Rademaker unwittingly became one of the great catalysts for the flourishing of Brazilian popular music during the Seventies. Six months before the official junta in February 1969, Brazilian President & military dictator Artur da Costa e Silva arrested popular Tropicalismo musicians Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil, imprisoning them for three months, then keeping them under house arrest for four months before forcing them into exile. While in London, Veloso recorded one of his most passionate & expansive albums, Transa, describing his experience as exile. PolyGram released Transa when Veloso returned to Brazilian soil permanently in January 1972. Concurrently, other Brazilian musicians pursued their own unique signature works. Jorge Ben plumbed deep interest in theosophy, mysticism & alchemy in his 1974 release A Tábua de Esmeralda, two years before his massively popular 1976 release África Brasil, containing the most popular song ever written about soccer “Ponta de Lança Africano (Umbabarauma)” (“Umbabarauma, go, meng, go!”). Somewhat under this radioactive radar, insanely hedonistic Brazilian soul music master Tim Maia released a series of self-produced, self-funded & self-distributed eponymous albums, including Tim Maia 1970, Tim Maia 1971, Tim Maia 1973, Tim Maia 1975 and Tim Maia 1978, while immersing himself in Manoel Jacintho Coelho’s Brazilian occult science Cultura Racional and preparing for live performances by engaging in his own personal “triathlon,” consuming copious quantities of whiskey, marijuana & cocaine. Many of these albums rank amongst the most popular in Brazil’s history. Finally, careful research on YouTube & the more remote reaches of the Internet will unearth any one, or all of the performers above, singing Brazil’s most popular song, “Asa Branca (White Wing).”  

ARIES – Your boss hates you & you hate your boss; push the envelope & you lose. That being said, Mars in Capricorn declares that bosses can begrudge you nothing if you cooperate with your colleagues.

TAURUS – Bosses love, and will use, your ideas. However, Mars in Capricorn promises that bosses & colleagues alike will admire you if you work hard to execute your ideas. Emphasize, “One percent inspiration, ninety-nine percept perspiration.” The man of the people becomes a legend in his own time!

GEMINI – You don’t have to go in debt with your own money to make certain projects work & pay. Whether bank loans, private placement, public money or grants, Mars in Capricorn insists that everything is possible – as long as you are not in a hurry.

CANCER – Does your partner or spouse believe the only way to success is via one-to-one, hand-on-hand, mano a mano competition? If so, Mars in Capricorn advises you to enlighten them that partner or spouse as to the joys & pleasures of . . . social climbing, “Darling, hurry! We must not be late for the opera’s opening aria!” Heavens, no.  

LEO – Read Virgo: Bosses, managers: Declare competition within workgroups obsolete. Instead, Mars in Capricorn advises you to compel your workgroups to compete with other workgroups. Share worthy adversaries.  

VIRGO – Read Leo: Sports coaches: Mars in Capricorn behooves you to teach not only your entire team but in fact your star players that the team outright rules – and to do so by citing the very public example where center Joel Embiid publicly chastised forward Ben Simmons at the beginning of the Philadelphia 76ers NBA season.  

LIBRA – Government employees, municipal officials: In almost all cases, Mars in Capricorn states that those civic leaders who have succumbed to corruption will be obvious. One does the right thing in the right way every time all the time – or one does not. End of story.  

SCORPIO – Coddle, coax, cajole & persuade employees & allies to do your bidding. However, when something is important, Mars in Capricorn instructs you to bark orders to your go-to superstar – who will gleefully reply, “One hundred percent, boss. Roger & copy. Over & out.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Fixing what is broken, curing what ails, rehabilitating what has rotted, requires money, more money, hard work, lots of time, blood, sweat, tears & more money. Getting no reward & no result builds inestimable character, while Mars in Capricorn adds, “Saving lives & souls brings incalculable joy.”  

CAPRICORN – When you do it by yourself, for yourself, you feel empty. Mars in Capricorn invites you to do it with others, for yourself, but also for others. Share the victory. Enjoy a richer experience.  

AQUARIUS – Sure, there were times when it was all about you – and, while it does pump the ego, it feels kind of awkward. Now, Mars in Capricorn promises that it is not all about you, or all for you, but it is all for your family, city, state, province or country. Join. Sacrifice. Cooperate. Exude gratitude.  

PISCES – A lot of very powerful people now rely upon you for what you can do & they can’t: Bring people together. Mars in Capricorn shows those who value money the true value of spirit, which does not answer to money. You tame the rebel. You humble the plutocrat. You communicate beyond the façade of decaying flesh.

Jupiter transits Pisces from December 29, 2021 to May 10, 2022. Why should one meditate? For one thing, the conscious mind chooses its goal – but the Tao you can Tao is not the Tao. As T.S. Eliot asserts in “East Coker” within Four Quartets, “I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing. Wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing. There is yet faith, but the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.” One must still the conscious mind. The unconscious hides as it leads the conscious mind. Distinguishing conscious from unconscious empowers our insight to discern which leads which. The difference between whimsy & intuition becomes clear. One will then recognize the real McCoy as if McCoy himself shot the bottle cap off the glass lip of an intact, whole, full & cold bottle of Pepsi. But when does that happen? As Russell Hoban cryptically asserts within his post-apocalyptic novel Riddley Walker, “Eusa said, Wut is the idear uv me? The Littl Man sed, That we doan no til yuv gon thru aul yur Chaynijs.”  

ARIES – Read Leo. Wherever you work, you spend so much time there, working on the same thing over a number of years that you, as an insider, realize that a certain product, service or need attracts an unusually high volume of customers & clients. As a result, Jupiter in Pisces asserts that you know what to buy, what to sell & what to say to whom on the press release. Are you legally or professionally allowed to do all or any of these things? Are you sure?  

TAURUS – The genius of the Internet service Meetup lies in the simple premise that people who share an interest will want a space in which to share that interest. Jupiter in Pisces encourages you & others not only to engage in different Meetup groups – but to go further. Some Meetups involve thousands of members – will those thousands of members be enough to create repeat, high-volume, high-density business in a storefront?  

GEMINI – Nightmare scenario: Two thousand people pack a jazz club with a genius quintet when eight cops bust in during the middle of “A Night in Tunisia” to arrest the stand-up bassist for human sex trafficking, inducing all two thousand people to leave as one man. Impossible? Jupiter in Pisces says, “No.” Things too good to be true usually are. Vet all sources before booking “the band.”  

CANCER – Large crowds follow large crowds, wanting to make large crowds giant. Individuals hover within & around large crowds to demystify them to those immersed in a vague, desultory group mind. Jupiter in Pisces asks, “Can you direct that giant crowd so that they do something profoundly useful, transforming all of mankind?” Yogi Bhajan from “Burden of Tomorrow” on the cover of the Prosperity Paths newsletter, “Guru Gobind Singh said we shall be 960 million people, and they are going to come to you.”  

LEO – Read Aries. Bosses & power brokers don’t know & never hear how the unmolten, quotidian masses think & feel thoughts & feelings to which you are now privy. To some specific executive, Jupiter in Pisces insists that this stuff is solid platinum. Pitch it to those whom you think will be interested. The one who cares will approach you as if you are on fire!  

VIRGO – Those in a group who simply follow the group annoy you – ignore them. However, Jupiter in Pisces analyzes how certain individuals in the group follow the group for deep & complex intellectual or spiritual reasons. This individual is more useful than a marketing demographic. Find out what makes this type of person tick.  

LIBRA – Managers: Employees hide from bosses for different reasons. Some employees are lazy. Other employees break the law. Still other employees want the boss’s job. Jupiter in Pisces states that you must find out why each employee hides. Keep track of your people.  

SCORPIO – You will come into contact with a group of people who, consciously or unconsciously, want to achieve or to ascend to something much larger than themselves. Certain individuals within the group realize this; most will not. Jupiter in Pisces appoints you leader, should you accept. So, what are you? A televised Christian minister? A mass murderer? An avant-garde theatrical producer? A Ponzi scheme fraudster? The lead in a jazz quartet? Whatever it is: You can always say, “No.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Your bosom buddy espionage agent can keep you updated about workplace trends, so you can work remotely from your own home office for as long as it serves you. Even so, Jupiter in Pisces wants to know, “What is the purpose?” Really, is this the ideal professional arrangement – for your professional control, accomplishments, compensation? Why are you doing what? What? Why? Answer yourself before somebody else asks you.  

CAPRICORN – Really! The Rose Bowl, the Cotton Bowl, the Super Bowl happen every year. Madonna or Radiohead play the Hollywood Bowl, everybody & their sister gets tickets. So, Capricorn the Goat wants to quintuple the stakes? Jupiter in Pisces says, “Sure, buddy – I got you.” But why? If the answer isn’t good enough . . . there will be no “How?”  

AQUARIUS – When your super-attractive teenage wannabe-hippie niece sings, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love – that’s the only thing that there’s just too little of,” her Shark Tank football jock older brother criticizes, “At what price point? Sentences don’t end with prepositions.” You exclaim, “What a sibling rivalry!” But Jupiter in Pisces contradicts, “It’s all too natural.” Will it take more than mint-filled Oreo cookies to get them to work together? The answer is, “Yes – it requires the pursuit of a realistic ideal.”  

PISCES – Jupiter in Pisces can make Pisces gain weight – therefore, curb the appetite for food & drink, Falstaff. Then again, Jupiter in Pisces can make Pisces the Big Fish gain stature – when the Big Fish throws the Big Fish’s weight around, a lot of seriously positive things can happen. A King Neptune cake to celebrate, “May this cake take all the malice, hate, hurt & pain from the rest of humanity on Earth.” A big party with big ambition!

ARTICLE #11

Asbolus< conjuncts* Bienor> in Gemini
from July 29, 2021 to July 15, 2022.

The literary premise, “character is fate,” can make a story either boring & predictable or disturbing & surreal. Examine, for example, the eponymous male siblings of Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s crowning masterpiece The Brothers Karamazov. The oldest brother, Dmitri: A hothead. On trial for murder. You know he did it. Third brother of four, Alyosha: Kicked out of the seminary for his naïveté. The good son, the protagonist, who gives the speech at the novel’s end to secure Dostoyevsky’s legacy as the author of his country & the century. The youngest brother, Smerdyakov: What a name! A deformed troll. Ostensibly without guilt, merely physically repulsive.

But the second oldest brother, Ivan! The writer. The thinker. The published author who penned the darkest prose ever written within prose, The Grand Inquisitor, about the undisputed heavy of one of history’s foremost atrocities, The Spanish Inquisition. The second death sentence of the manifest savior Jesus Christ! A tract so coldly shrewd that it drives the writer himself mad. Fyodor Dostoyevsky, convicted felon released from Siberia, depicting Ivan Karamazov, celebrated writer & philosopher, whose own written words entrap him in an endless tunnel of hauntingly dark mirrors with incisive flashes of horrifying, clarifying light.  

ARIES – Cain talked back to God, when God asked him a direct question, “Where is your brother?” Asbolus & Bienor reinforce that God does not tolerate humans who talk back. Answer all authority figures with respect.  

TAURUS – If you owe somebody money, don’t talk smack – pay them. If somebody who owes you money talks smack to you, Asbolus & Bienor advise you to get a cop, to hire a lawyer or to contact your credit card company to help you get your money. If that does not work, inform local businesses that such & such is a deadbeat. Polaroid mugshots of homeless shoplifters above the cashier at Seven Eleven!  

GEMINI – Cops, federal law enforcement agents: If one watches enough Sixties’ & Seventies’ American television, the idea of “police partners” – Dragnet, with Jack Webb & Harry Morgan as Detectives Joe Friday & Bill Gannon; I Spy, with Robert Culp & Bill Cosby as Kelly Robinson & Alexander Scott; Adam-12, with Martin Milner & Kent McCord as Pete Malloy & Jim Reed – seems benign, predictable & reassuring, if sometimes quirky (to add some comic relief). However, with the pressure put on U.S. law enforcement in the 21st century, Asbolus & Bienor sometimes make you more paranoid about who is riding in your car than anything that happens outside of it. Be very judicious about making official complaints to headquarters – you can choose your spouse, but you can’t choose your partner.  

CANCER – Bosses aren’t trying to announce that a hostile & potentially violent crime or major theft happened recently around your workplace or amongst your employer’s employees, but they also have not done that much to dispel the dark cloud of suspicion that surrounds everybody who works there. Asbolus & Bienor intuit that the whole thing has the feel of a knife fight in an alleyway. Decide once & for all if you are working with or for too many callous people. If so, plan your next move.  

LEO – Insufferable clients who are never satisfied make you & others sick when you all show up at work. Asbolus & Bienor say that there is no law which says that your company must take their money. If your bosses object to this attitude, maybe it is time that you service other clients working for other bosses.  

VIRGO – Read Scorpio. A boss who has cheated you has met their match. Asbolus & Bienor comment that it is only natural that they hate each other – they are both looking in the mirror. May they live unhappily ever after. As for yourself, fly under the evil radar.  

LIBRA – Lawyers, judges, jury members: Whether a civil or criminal action, whether District or Appellate, when the plaintiffs & defendants hate each other’s guts, there can be no happy verdict. Asbolus & Bienor state that, in such a situation, the best that any participant can do is quell open rage – which it is not in everybody’s interest to do.  

SCORPIO – Read Virgo. The business partners who double-crossed you double-crossed each other. Should you get involved & get double the revenge? Asbolus & Bienor smirk as they reply, “Remember the Mexican standoff at the end of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs? Therefore . . . uh, no.” (Pablo Tabor at the climax of Robert Stone’s A Flag for Sunrise, “I hate when people turn you around. It messes you up so bad. You just go round & round.”)  

SAGITTARIUS – John Lennon envied, spited & hated Paul McCartney – and vice versa. Rumors declared Paul dead in 1965 while Mark David Chapman assassinated John on December 8, 1980. (“Helter Skelter” off The White Album, “When I get to the bottom, I get back to the top of the slide.”) Paul Simon envied, spited & hated Art Garfunkel– and vice versa. (“Like a bridge over troubled water.”) Conversely, Sagittarian Archers Jim Morrison & Jimi Hendrix both died young, decadent, bacchanal deaths. (“The End” from The Doors, “Weird scenes inside the gold mine – ride the highway west, baby.”) (Jimi singing Gemini the Twin Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” from Electric Ladyland.) Asbolus & Bienor conclude, “Enough said.” (“I’ve got blisters on my fingers!”)  

CAPRICORN – The Dalton Gang were western lawmen turned rogue who robbed trains at gunpoint. When honest lawmen killed them to capture them, journalists photographed their filthy untreated corpses leaning against a wooden wall of a log cabin on a dirt floor. Asbolus & Bienor declare the clear moral: The wages of sin are death.  

AQUARIUS – Was Peter Missing & the Missing Foundation responsible, as network television news reported, for the 1988 Tompkins Square Park Riot in New York City’s Lower East Side? Hard to say. Asbolus & Bienor do say one thing in Missing’s behalf: Peter Missing was a local. Peter Missing lived & played his music in NYC’s LES. His people tagged Alphabet City with the date, “1933,” with the symbolic glyph of the upside-down martini glass, with the slogan, “The Party’s Over.” Peter Missing was no interloping media whore.

PISCES – Have children or teenagers in your family or extended family done something evil? Consider: The Tsarnaev brothers scarred Copley Square & the history of the Boston Marathon with their debased violence. The Reid brothers exploited North, South & West Philadelphia as much as the heroin dealers in Kensington with their municipal drug trafficking. Asbolus & Bienor now exhort you to consider the legacies of the Tsarnaev family in Boston & the Reid family, uprooted from Philadelphia as father Andy now coaches the Kansas City Chiefs. You maintain a certain small degree of responsibility for how such family members turned out – but, eventually, you must draw a line.

< Asbolus, named after the psychic centaur whose wisdom was completely ignored while his foolishness was universally emulated, was discovered in April 1995 & named in September 1999. Asbolus, which embodies the higher mind in the lower self, bridges the gap in consciousness between Jupiter & Neptune, warning us not to take our “leaders” at face value.  

> Bienor, a centaur planet that traverses from just outside the orbit of Saturn just across the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in August 2000 & named in January 2004. Theseus, fighting for the Lapiths against the Centaurs to avenge the honor of Pirithous's bride Hippodamia, killed Bienor by jumping on his back, pulling his hair, and smashing his mouth while it spouted violent threats.

ARTICLE #12

Bienor< conjuncts@ 1996-TL66> in Gemini from May 4, 2021 to May 21, 2022. Who could forget the decade-long litany of negotiations over the budget between President Barack Obama & Congress, as Democratic Vice-President Joe Biden sat down with Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in meetings where, after intense negotiations, they decided how to turn on the lights again on that business called America? During such far-off, golden days, Democrats & Republicans felt comfortable blaming each other – now, after, and partially as a result of, President Donald J. Trump, Democrats blame the police & vandalize the cities while Republicans blame the government & vandalize vested government buildings on both the state & federal levels.  

ARIES – Many people refuse to believe that God exists as a willful, potent, manifest force to the degree where He could develop & distribute COVID-19 through all the nations of the world – and, if God is too damned weak & lame to do it, it must be those satanically omnipotent (Democrats) (Republicans) (godless Communist Chinese)! Careful! Bienor & 1996-TL66 strongly warn you, “Do not blame those whom you will desperately need in order to escape the mess wherein you now suffer. “Solid Rock” – the name of the band is Dire Straits, “When you point your finger cause your plan fell through, you got three more fingers pointing back at you.”  

TAURUS – The power broker to whom you have been addressing your intellectual arguments refuses to acknowledge that you have made your point. You may feel frustrated & bitter, but Bienor & 1996-TL66 agree that you spoke clear English. Swagger so as to communicate, “When the time comes, I can & will return to say, ‘I told you so!’”  

GEMINI – Bosses & colleagues always left for you the task of negotiating the budget by which all your colleagues & employees did business. Because you successfully devised a budget wherein everybody survived within a razor’s edge, you got no credit & all blame, “What a draconian cheapskate!” Now – surprise! – the same old situation recurs. You pull the rabbit out of the hat once again – and Bienor & 1996-TL66 assigns the exact same blame! Apologize sarcastically & dismissively, “Try as I may, I couldn’t leave any of you, let alone all of you, out in the cold. But I’ll keep trying!”  

CANCER – Nobody can be blamed for stealing from the mailroom or within the company’s offices because the offices have been closed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine. But somebody is to blame! Indeed, Bienor & 1996-TL66 notice that the familiarity of your contempt for your work colleagues prevents you from sleeping. Why do you need these people? Can’t you learn to tolerate your ugly, stupid, vicious self? Detach yourself as much as you can from this loser crew so that you don’t wind up hating all of humanity – including yourself.  

LEO – You really thought that the client from Hell had fired you & your company. However, Bienor &1996-TL66 indicate that this client could not find anybody else in the marketplace could do such a good job for such a small profit margin at such an absurdly parsimonious price. So: Why do clients continue to complain? Why do you & your company continue to work for them?  

VIRGO – An old boss who cheated you & your peers years ago in order to step over all of you to win at “Monarch of the Hill” returns. Bienor & 1996-TL66 are amazed – this creep has come back not only to gloat but in fact to reassert their hegemony. Revamp your morals & ethics so that you may compete with much more unrestrained, naked aggression.  

LIBRA – Read Scorpio. A bad legal decision of several years ago demonstrates how wrong it was as a subsequent misdeed mirrors its predecessor in eerie fashion. Bienor & 1996-TL66 now demand that you work to overturn this decision & this precedent . . . come what may.  

SCORPIO – Read Libra. You plan to pursue this extraordinarily bitter litigation yet again not only because of how much financially it is worth to you but also as a matter of principle. Then again, you’re a masochist – you live for the sensation of delivering unto others the pain that they mad you suffer. But this your personal thrill –Bienor & 1996-TL66 emphasize, your feelings & predilections clearly to the contrary, that this is not a gladiator blood sport. You really need a lawyer who will not allow himself or herself to get personally involved. Indeed, you need a lawyer motivated to engage in the seamless practice of the law itself.  

SAGITTARIUS – You knew right from wrong back then & who represented which. Now, the friends you chose choose your fate. Those friends who want you to see the light will demand that you do the hard work to reform your character & to rehabilitate your eternal soul. Those “friends” who chose you an evil fate refuse to leave. Bienor & 1996-TL66 present you with the complete scorecard for your perusal & ongoing reference. Nothing is going to change. Good luck.  

CAPRICORN – Merchants, home owners: Equip your home & property with sufficient surveillance cameras, guard dogs & recording equipment to discourage or to catch burglars & thieves – in some cases, the burglars & thieves who had victimized you several years ago. Bienor & 1996-TL66 do not suggest that you fool yourself – these burglars & thieves envy you & see you as their target. Prepare to defend yourself against their personally motivated perfidy.  

AQUARIUS – A so-called friend or acquaintance is really a bitterly ruthless competitor who would rather destroy somebody else rather than lose. Emotional pain, humiliation, rubbing one’s opponent’s face in the dirt – Bienor & 1996-TL66 confirm that you are dealing with one nasty sneak. For the moment, withdraw. Let deceitful competitors show all their true colors in full & over time.  

PISCES – With this child, with other children in your family in the past & with children in your own nuclear family growing up, you have experienced this same win-at-all-costs, bitter, hostile & inhuman competitiveness, complete with manipulation, cheating, allies turning to rivals and rivals morphing into peers. Bienor & 1996-TL66 strongly advise you to admonish this child, “It is only just a game – why would you let such stupid juvenile competition over this silly game poison the inherent beauty of your kind & generous soul?”

SDOs are far more remote in space than even Varuna or Pluto, the outermost planets in our current solar system; 1996-TL66, an SDO, is also a TNO because, at perihelion, it hovers around the orbit of Neptune.

ARTICLE #13

Pholus< conjuncts* 2002-GZ32> in Capricorn from December 13, 2020 to November 25, 2022. One spy or one saboteur cannot infiltrate one large-scale organization with over one thousand members, or one city neighborhood over one large section of its already irregularly shaped grid. The best that that spy or saboteur can do is to isolate, vandalize, pollute & render damaged is that part of the institution upon which everybody in the institution refers, or that part of that city’s neighborhood through which everybody eventually must travel – then to harness, to direct & to accelerate the long-term backward regression.  

ARIES – Because the mayor is in some gangster’s pocket, the gangster will not let you, or any other citizen, talk to the mayor. Should you talk to the gangster? Not that the gangster cares – but if the gangster can solve your problem, then Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn suggest that the gangster might come to the conclusion that you will have no reason to talk to anybody else in city government – particularly about that gangster. Consider the potential consequences.  

TAURUS – As a result of the George Floyd protests during the COVID-19 summer of 2020, there are all sorts of crimes that cops cannot directly address, lest they risk violating the rights of the criminal who gives not a damn for the rights of any of their fellow citizens. But, in the end, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn declares that the police still know the law – and those of them that have been around awhile know how to enforce the law in myriad, indirect ways. Do not be discouraged from asking for a policeman’s help.  

GEMINI – You want to buy into certain tech stocks – Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft – but you don’t want to buy a percentage of a share. Worse yet, some of these particular stocks – Google, Amazon especially – do not want to split. What do you do? Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn advise you to buy a quantity of Apple, which does split. Wait for Apple to go up & to split. Wait until you have enough Apple & cash to buy into Google & Amazon, then sell some Apple & buy some Google & some Amazon. If you think, “three years,” think much more. Or invest much more.  

CANCER – Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn denotes that your spouse cannot afford to get sick. Your spouse has already alienated himself or herself & you by the sheer obtuseness of their job, and now risk their health in order to maintain that job. However, once your spouse gets the flu, you can’t take care of him or her & get sick yourself, because if he or she gets COVID-19 . . . Just tell your spouse, “Stop working so hard – and that’s an order!”  

LEO – All that it takes is one employee with COVID-19 or one employee awaiting trial for storming the Capitol to complicate your professional supervisory duties. With that, Dilbert cartoon in mind, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn suggests that the Lion refrain from a sarcastic smile, lest the feds believe you are entertained as they put you under obtuse yet truly arduous pressure.  

VIRGO – Athletes: Stop thinking about some so-called star on another team getting all sorts of special treatment as a result of COVID-19 or burning a tree outside the Capitol Building. Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn emphasizes that you play sports – you throw & catch & shoot balls. What the Hell is so convoluted about that? Stick to business as your opponent is on a conference call on their cell phone with their lawyer, account & local bankruptcy judge.  

LIBRA – Municipal officials, real estate developers: Just because you are restricting access to your property does not mean that citizens will obey you if you try to close off acres of pedestrian throughway to them. Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn insists that you must hire security to patrol all that land from aimless pedestrians, vendors, bicyclists & skateboarders, as well as truly malevolent vandals – and find a way to put it to valuable use in the meantime.  

SCORPIO – Managers: There are so many legal restrictions put upon communications between you & certain employees that there is really nothing for the two of you to discuss professionally. In the end, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn suggests that you just might want to be nice to that individual for a change, “Is your mother’s health improving, my friend?” You can’t control whether or not the individual in question replies in kind or not, “What it to you, you hypocritical satanic creep?” Still, being nice is not going to hurt you here – or anywhere, really, “I wish her all my best.”  

SAGITTARIUS – You seem to have a lot of money in the bank but you are legally required to leave a large percentage of it on hand because of property you own. Indeed, even though, appearances to the contrary, you are cash broke, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn demands that you get some income that you don’t need to report to taxes to make ends meet. Be creative. Act lawfully. Be careful.  

CAPRICORN – “And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile,” David Byrne sings on “Once in a Lifetime” on Talking Heads’ Remain in Light, “And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife – and you may ask yourself, ‘Well . . . how did I get here?’” And, indeed, no sign of the zodiac has seen as many changes as abrupt, total & contradictory as Capricorn the Goat since the early Eighties. Indeed, with all that you know about all that you have done amongst so many people for so many years, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn notices that the person who scares you the most . . . is yourself.  

AQUARIUS – It goes on behind closed doors in somebody else’s office & you don’t need to know. And that which was discussed in that office here, now, had been discussed in the bullpen amongst the sales staff on the fifteenth floor two weeks ago, which you did not attend, and follows up what local initiatives in Los Angeles & Chicago discussed, to which you were invited & which you did not attend, and about which you do not need to know. Therefore, when you go to sleep tonight, and the office door is closed in your dream of the dream of the truth under the current influence of Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn, you will not need to know . . . and you can go to sleep.  

PISCES – Could have been like a mob flick where the entire Italian extended family eating & drinking & laughing & smoking in tuxedos & night gowns all of a sudden exclaims in whispers & grunts & shouts & screams in terror as the capo beats the skull of one of your best friends with a wooden baseball bat. Could have been like the intro of the show just before the trailer in I Spy where Bill Cosby as Alexander Scott meets Robert Culp’s as Kelly Robinson’s former partner, who is shot by a sniper as Cosby searches their Rio de Janeiro kitchen suite for a corkscrew. “Well,” Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn says, “he’s dead now.” What next? Put away the corkscrew . . . and find out why.  

< Pholus, named after the centaur who accidentally died because mighty Hercules was thirsty, was discovered in 1992 & named in 1996. Pholus bridges the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Neptune, forcing us mere mortals to realize that even our most severe discipline is worthless when God wishes to teach us a lesson.  

> 2002-GZ32 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on April 13, 2002. The orbit of 2002-GZ32 traverses across the orbit of Uranus and just before the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2002-GZ32, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #14

Okyrhoe< conjuncts@ Nessus> in Pisces
from February 16, 2021 to February 18, 2022.

“Some people fear their memory because such people demand total control of their lives,” the grandmother tells her granddaughter at the lunch counter of a local coffeeshop. “Still, if a person had total control of their life, that would mean that that person would choose both their mother & father, as well as the place of their conception – an idea which is, self-evidently, ridiculous.

 “What I tell you now, you may remember & tell your own granddaughter when you are my age,” the grandmother continues, “and the most interesting thing about it that you can tell your granddaughter may be the fact that you will say it from the very same seat in this very same coffeeshop!”

The granddaughter gasps! “Are you predicting that, grandma?”

“Am I predicting that?” the grandmother asks. The grandmother dismisses the answer with the wave of her right hand. “This coffeeshop might not last two more weeks,” the grandmother contradicts herself, “but it might last two more centuries. Nondescript businesses which fly under the media radar can disappear quickly or last forever. Only time can distinguish the sturdy from the flimsy – but, just from the law of numbers, at least one business you already patronize will endure the rest of your life.

“Even so, whatever happens,” the grandmother, and the granddaughter smile, together, “this coffeeshop does serve good coffee.”  

ARIES – Religion continues to disappear throughout the western world – but not everywhere & amongst all people. While you might not want to lose your access to history, including the history of religion in your family & city, Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus declares that there are less & less sources of it all the time. To that end, talk with a family elder about the religious culture in which they grew up before they themselves disappear. Consider the real differences, for good & for ill, that Vatican II & Reform Judaism has made on real peoples’ lives.  

TAURUS – Ask a family elder how they feel about the Insurrection at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. Guaranteed, Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus asserts that that family elder will not mention Donald Trump, but will mention other places where similar things have happened. “Most people say that such a thing could not happen in America,” the family elder might say – then stop.

GEMINI – An employee’s workload is a function of how bosses do business. Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus states that sophisticated individuals with extensive work experience will know if bosses are genuinely busy, completely irresponsible or outright malicious.  

CANCER – You tell your grandmother that you spent a week on vacation with your long-term boyfriend on Miami Beach. Your grandmother says, “How wonderful!” then asks questions about the hotel, the beach, the food, the nightlife & the price of drinks. Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus declares that if you are wise, and want to know about history you won’t read in books, you will ask your grandmother, “Have you ever been to Miami Beach?” Be open to more, both impersonal & personal, detail.  

LEO – A hardened old cheater in some dirty back office looks for somebody new & young to corrupt. If you are young, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, ambitious & outright allergic to negativity, then Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus urges you to stay as far away from this cantankerous rap sheet of unresolved trouble as possible.  

VIRGO – Your mother & your daughter make quite a pair is social circles. What would they say about you? Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus advise syou not to consider it. Whatever it is, it won’t be gossip – it will be a memory that will recall decades of the entire life of a familial partner, parent or family member in one cogent instant.  

LIBRA – As long as you trust the old-timer, Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus encourages you to let the old-timer train the youngster. Some of that training will involve lessons that your company does not teach – but God bless the old-timer, “Better than learning the down & dirty the hard way.”  

SCORPIO – If your grandfather can lust after Paulina Gretzky, your grandson can lust after Jane Russell. But you might ask yourself, “Why aren’t they attracted by somebody of the opposite sex their own age?” To which Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus replies the obvious: The difference in age aligns with its verboten nature as part & parcel of the actual attraction.  

SAGITTARIUS – Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus urges you to encourage grandmother & granddaughter to research & to compile your extended family tree – if they haven’t already secretly started to do so.  

CAPRICORN – Patriarchs of all ages: Amongst extended families which have large-scale gatherings of different nuclear families at picnics or at wedding receptions, Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus dares you to do something which is heretofore unique: Serve as a talk show host! Interview family members from various generations. Rent a performance space with the concomitant necessary TV equipment. Record. Distribute. Ensure that nobody is shy!  

AQUARIUS – Radically alter how you view politics & political trends. Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus urges the sophisticated Waterbearer to shift their focus from the dominant forms of political discourse which media inculcates, which involve petty partisan politics, race & regional culture, to emphasize more strongly the experience of individual age cohorts as far back as you can research using primary sources.  

PISCES – We often save our deepest thoughts for our friends, because our friends are much more open to how we process our ideas than our families. Now, Okyrhoe conjunct Nessus may surprise & in fact shock you at how well you might fathom how your grandmother & granddaughter process extremely recondite occult thought – and why. Challenge your bloodline with concepts that you normally save for your most daring intellectual & spiritual companions.  

< Okyrhoe, a centaur planet that traverses between the orbits of Jupiter & Saturn, was discovered in September 1998 & named in June 2003. Okyrhoe (meaning “rapid flow”), the daughter of Chiron & Chariklo, had offended the Fates by using her gift of prophesy. Okyrhoe transformed into a mare and was given the new name Hippe. For information on how to interpret Okyrhoe, formerly 1998-SG35, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

> Nessus, named after the centaur whose bloodied & semen-stained shirt eventually killed Hercules, was discovered during the siege at Waco in April 1993 & named in 1997. Nessus bridges the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Pluto, forcing us to discard naivete about jealousy, anger, irrationality & evil in ourselves & in others so that we may cultivate the will & the stomach to evolve as a species.

ARTICLE #15

Pluto conjuncts* Amycus! in Capricorn
from December 7, 2020 to February 17, 2023.

During the George W. Bush Administration, President Bush’s daughter Jenna, more outspoken than twin sister Barbara, learned to handle the media – but she made mistakes. Twice in early 2001, police arrested Jenna for buying alcohol as a minor. “With her second citation for alleged underage alcohol offenses, Jenna Bush has been thrust into the public spotlight for transgressions that likely would not be noticed if they involved any of her fellow students,” asserted USA TODAY’s Tom Kenworthy in “Bush Daughters Cited in Texas,” stating the obvious. “Among students lingering here Thursday between the spring and summer sessions, her situation generated a certain amount of sympathy, but also some feeling that a young woman in her position ought to be more careful.”

Recently, in “Former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager on Violence at U.S. Capitol: 'This is Not the America that I Know,'” Yahoo Entertainment’s Raechal Shewfelt recounts how NBC’s Today Show’s Hoda Kotb asked the former First Daughter for her thoughts about rioters’ storming the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. after rioters attended outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s rally, accompanied by son Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka Trump Kushner. Jenna Bush Hager proved that she knew well the pedestal from which she spoke. “I have had the privilege of standing on those steps, in several inaugurations, not just for family members, but for the first black President of the United States of America, when I was a teacher, in inner-city D.C., and that meant so much to so many,” Bush Hager said. “I kissed my grandfather goodbye in that rotunda. I have felt the majesty of our country in those walls and nobody can take that from any of us.”  

ARIES – To disregard “the scion of privilege,” the son or daughter of the prestigious local patriarch or matriarch, is unwise. Indeed, Pluto conjunct Amycus asserts that it matters not whether “the scion of privilege” acts & speaks artlessly or artfully. Whatever they say is heard – “the scion of privilege” holds the patriarch’s or matriarch’s ear. Show overt respect.  

TAURUS – The police chief’s son & daughter have gotten arrested when they were younger, and it may appear that that son or daughter got away unscathed legally. Even so, Pluto conjunct Amycus emphasizes that, back then, they were held accountable by the police chief, the ultimate übermensch of the Freudian superego. Do not presume the police chief’s son or daughter remained lawless & reckless forever – particularly if they know that you yourself are breaking the law.  

GEMINI – Don’t kid yourself: The brokerage house which caters to old money caters even more to the accounts held by the relatives of the brokerage firm’s founder – even after, as Pluto conjunct Amycus will occasionally make clear, such relatives demonstrate financial & behavioral innumeracy, “That is guaranteed to lose everybody money, you fool!”  

CANCER – Don’t be so foolish as to establish yourself as an outright opponent of a powerful, local businessperson’s family or politician’s family. Indeed, Pluto conjunct Amycus suggests that to do so may instead establish a scenario wherein you both start out as enemies & end up as friends. Instead, maintain a friendship with whichever generation accepts you – on your terms, “Consider me ‘counterpoint’ – leaning towards ‘satire.’” Hunt for that cunning laugh!  

LEO – Employing, supervising or working alongside an entry level employee whose father is an important local elected official or a local wealthy business tycoon turns the table – instead of monitoring their performance, Pluto conjunct Amycus more than suggests that they monitor yours. But, in fact, the dynamic is more complex than that. Be awake as to all the cross-currents.  

VIRGO – Student athletes & parents thereof: In certain regions of the country, including Florida & California, high school athletes train with the children of immensely wealthy & famous superstar athletes. What does this mean to you? The current answer: Pluto conjunct Amycus replies, “Absolutely nothing.” People are people are people. Behave naturally – let chips fall where they fall.  

LIBRA – Your boss, the mayor, may have invited you to dinner. Great! Nevertheless, Pluto conjunct Amycus warns you not to presume that the mayor is in charge of the mayor’s household. Discretion is (the better part of valor) (necessary for maintaining high-level political connections.)  

SCORPIO – The boss, who owns the joint, was always getting into trouble, barking orders in hostile borderline insults that degraded employees so harshly that they don’t want to do their job anymore. Well, Pluto conjunct Amycus announces that bosses have found the perfect surrogate to issue instructions for them: The boss’s son, “I survived & thrived under my father – and so can you!”  

SAGITTARIUS – You’ve got a powerful, well-connected father? Well, Pluto conjunct Amycus gives you two ways to look at it: With a powerful father, 1) One can never get in trouble; or 2) One is guaranteed a position of power eventually, provided that one never, ever gets in trouble.  

CAPRICORN – As a child in a family with a prominent parent, Pluto conjunct Amycus states that that child has no peers – only siblings. Cousins don’t count!  

AQUARIUS – Policy: When you meet the son or daughter of the owner, boss, or local politically elected official while at your job, Pluto conjunct Amycus demands that you treat the children as the equal to the parents. The Waterbearer’s penchant for decorum is impeccable & absolute! Policy!  

PISCES – Express gratitude for being given the opportunity to speak with a powerful individual’s son or daughter, “I appreciate the chance to converse with the younger generation.” Pluto conjunct Amycus empowers you to speak cryptically & didactically, with veiled reference, “You are familiar no doubt with the invitation of the Savannah gentleman in John Berendt’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil concerning his city’s status in Georgia, ‘What will you have to drink?’ Well, I would reply, ‘A well-mannered dirty martini’ – despite my ostensible lack of tools & social graces, I nevertheless aim to impress.”  

* Amycus, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Uranus & Neptune between the orbit of Saturn & the more remote portion of the orbit of Pluto, was discovered in April 2002 and named in December 2005. Amycus was the first centaur to engage in battle with the Lapiths by smashing the face of the Lapith Celadon with a candelabrum stripped from the inmost wedding shrine. For information on how to interpret 2002-GB10, formerly Amycus, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #16

The North Node$ transits Taurus
from December 23, 2021 to July 12, 2023.

The opening sequence of the second-season episode of the Sixties TV series I Spy entitled “Mainly on the Plains,” set in Seville, Spain, begins in unusual form. Lead actor Robert Culp as Kelly Robinson, instead of pursuing, protecting, seducing, spying on or spying with a truly gorgeous, savvy, young, brilliant woman, truly enjoys an encounter with Boris Karloff playing the venerable, distinguished nuclear physicist from the University of Madrid named Don Ernesto Silvando. Don Ernesto, erudite about the significance of all sorts of details about local historical landmarks in this ancient Spanish city, including, particularly, and passionately, about Miguel de Cervantes’s classic epic novel of the ages, Don Quixote – of which Don Ernesto owns 61 different editions translated into 14 different languages, including the Nigerian tribal language Bantu, which has no word for “windmill” – charms Kelly into uncharacteristic humility.

Soon thereafter, Kelly, Kelly’s partner, Bill Cosby as Alexander Scott, and Don Ernesto all agree, circumspectly, circuitously and gingerly, in obedience to all unseen authorities, that Kelly & Scottie would accompany Don Ernesto to Madrid on a business trip by automobile across Spain from Seville to Madrid. In their car along the highway as they follow Don Ernesto, Scottie wonders darkly to Kelly, “This whole ride up here is like something out of Don Quixote.”

Embedding Don Quixote within another work of fiction, in this case a television script, is not unprecedented. Jorge Luis Borges, Argentine master of metafiction, published “Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote,” where fictional literary critic Menard attempts to recreate Don Quixote, line by line, to account for developments in world history for the past three centuries, in 1939. In the context of this I Spy episode “Mainly on the Plains,” the metafictional observation which Scottie imparts to Kelly is not mere armchair psychotherapy, but, in fact, pertinent information for their mission. The U.S. Government assigned Kelly & Scottie to obtain from Don Ernesto the algorithm he discovered, “The Thermal Co-Efficient for the Homing Anti-Missile Missile,” necessary to create a military defense against a nuclear weapon system. Kelly & Scottie must engage & cooperate with Don Ernesto’s idiosyncrasies & peccadillos for that explicit end.

Don Ernesto does in fact indulge such idiosyncrasies & peccadillos. Fairly early on their trip across Spain, Don Ernesto stops driving, exits his car, then approaches, confronts & chastises one of Don Quixote’s sworn enemies, waving his cane at a local windmill. Later, amidst the chaos of pandemonium, Don Ernesto, like Don Quixote, against all legal authority, releases prisoners being transported along the same road from Seville to Madrid by La Policia de la Mancha. Amidst these & other concurrent adventures, Scottie, with a deeper background in literature than playboy partner Kelly, informs Kelly that what really motivates Don Ernesto is what motivated Don Quixote: To induce society to return to a code of chivalry.

It is only within this context of chivalry that Don Ernesto will participate in this charade – which conclusively explains Don Ernesto‘s initial & permanent contempt for an eastern bloc agent who misrepresented his true nationality when he first met Kelly & Don Ernesto at the beginning of the episode. “Which tells me that you are a liar,” Don Ernesto accused. “I know why you are trying to be my friend – and I reject you.”  

ARIES – You have cultivated zero tolerance for those who spend or even make money doing or selling goods or services that only plutocrats can, and you could never personally want or, afford. The North Node in Taurus compels you to notice all the people in the world who desperately need basics – shelter, food, water, literacy. The cult of technological progress offends & insults you, “Get the homeless off the street! Give them a shower & a plate of spaghetti!”  

TAURUS – You are sick of clicking on an article published by The New York Times or The Washington Post in an email newsletter or Google News only to be told by robotic dialogue box that you must pay to read it. Furthermore, the North Node in Taurus drives home the initial epiphany, “Journalistic opinion is not news coverage.” Investigate the news coverage of other North American newspapers & media outlets. Disregard “the low-hanging fruit.”  

GEMINI – Public money in the capital markets paid to allow Jeff Bezos to take over all the used books & CDs in the world, to underwrite Elon Musk & his war with the Biden Administration & the State of California, to empower Mark Zuckerberg to give anybody who wants one a free Facebook portal. Now the North Node in Taurus notes that Bezos & Musk fly into space as Zuckerberg secretly considers a run for President as he evades, then appears, before Parliamentary committees the entire world over. The bottom line: “Why are you financing the capricious whimsey of plutocrats?”  

CANCER – The North Node in Taurus states that the true political issue of the day is “cash” versus “cashless.” The bottom line: A debit card, a credit card, a checking account, any type of savings account is not cash in your pocket. Cash in your pocket is not subject to surveillance by the state. Why does the state need to control the flow of all your money if you are a law-abiding citizen? Do you want everything about your life to be recorded by state & institutional authorities or not?  

LEO – Arthur Anderson could not have perpetrated the massive accounting fraud of Enron without two things: The local area network & Microsoft Excel. The North Node in Taurus intends to restore the iron-fisted exclusivity of proprietary information – and Leo the Lion is all for it!  

VIRGO – A tightly-wound technocrat scrolls his cell phone with his right thumb & stares at their boss’s emails for the entire commute to & from work while his unread copy of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace sits on his bookshelf at home. The North Node in Taurus does not need to ask, “What is wrong with this picture?” Eradicate your own bad habits against this negative example.  

LIBRA – The pursuit of political gain will only distract & perhaps mislead you. The North Node in Taurus demands that you live within your means as you obey all laws. Indulging in luxuries when you cannot afford them, siphoning off non-existent financial largess to buy illegal drugs, catering to the whimsy of a large-breasted or well-hung gold-digging sex maniac – the wide road to destruction. Count your pennies, nickels, dimes & quarters. Save dollars. Put your credit cards away.  

SCORPIO – Financially leveraged in your quest for world domination? Encountering empiric overreach as you must oversee way too many ventures, people, deadlines? The North Node in Taurus observes that your somewhat hedonistic companion has a valid point, “It appears that your material acquisitiveness brings you no distinct pleasure.” Accept their invitation to enjoy a steak & a martini . . . and to discuss jazz, “Tell me – have you finished collecting all of Fifties Coltrane on vinyl yet?”  

SAGITTARIUS – Neil Young, who has seen the needle & the damage done, did in fact sing, “It’s better to burn out . . . than it is to rust.” Well, you’ve done both. The North Node in Taurus declares that the time has come to sandblast all that corrosion, to regenerate through training at the gym, and to pursue meaningful, lucrative labor – genuine, sober, serious rehabilitation. Shark chum is for sharks – don’t fill up on garbage. Edify your living skeleton.

CAPRICORN – Why was The Lehman Trilogy written by Stefano Massini, an Italian novelist & playwright, and performed first in Saint-Étienne, France, when the story of the Wall Street brokerage firm Lehman Brothers is a profoundly & distinctly American epic dating from the Presidential Administrations of James Polk in 1847 to Barack Obama in 2008? The North Node in Taurus responds, “For the same reason that Moby Dick was a commercial failure which effectively ended Herman Melville’s literary career: Because Americans are philistines.” (Did you notice how Nathaniel Hawthorne satirizes Americans’ relationship with food in “The Custom House,” the introduction to The Scarlet Letter?) Everybody already knows & nobody wants to hear whether or not there is a market for what (you) (anybody) writes or not: Are you a committed artist or not?  

AQUARIUS – The city where you live transforms itself before your eyes. The North Node in Taurus gently admonishes the Waterbearer that their opinions about it are not that important. All sorts of delicacies & rarities now become readily available. Indulge your inner sensualist & your inner epicurean.  

PISCES – You don’t understand people without bus fare or train fare. Fare evaders who jump turnstiles or fail to show verified tickets to authorized police agents perplex you. And why is that loudmouth giving that stewardess such a hard time? The North Node in Taurus completely understands you – in fact, you’re funny. Very funny. You’ve got a lot of material with which to work, “And now, ladies & gentlemen, for your comedic pleasure – the Big Fish!” (“Who, me?”)

$ The North Node and the South Node, or the Nodes of the Moon, represent current & past life karma, respectively, according to astrologer Martin Schulman. Astronomically, the North Node & the South Node are the two points at which the Moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic, setting a timetable for large-scale Solar & Lunar Eclipses over time.
