Juno< conjunct1 Huya> in Sagittarius sextiles2 Saturn in Aquarius sextiles2 Chiron# in Aries, as Venus in Cancer not only sextiles2 1998-BU48(x) in Virgo, and not only squares3 Hidalgo(y) in Libra, but also trines4 Pallas Athena(z) in Pisces, while Saturn in Aquarius squares3 Uranus in Taurus opposite5 2002-CR46? in Scorpio, as Echeclus$ conjunct1 the Sun in Cancer opposes5 2002-GZ32* in Capricorn conjunct1 the Full Capricorn Moon on June 24, 2021. Recent conclusions have peppered the news about how the results of the 2020 Census affect not only gerrymandered landmasses in different states but also added or subtracted federal representatives of the government based upon population increases & losses. Simultaneously, individuals who took part in Black Lives Matter protests last summer or the Insurrection March on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 take pencils out of their pockets as they enfold a map of the neighborhoods in their local area to work out different “ideas.” Of course, with a government permit or license & all appropriate rental & insurance fees, all types of ideas are possible – but an ill fate shall meet one & all who try to impose an idea which is sectarian & private upon what is public & for the good of all.  

ARIES – Your visionary political demonstration, art happening or summer art or theater extravaganza now generates a lot of support behind the scenes as artists, musicians & orators all see & seek an opportunity to participate – but Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon contend that your ultimate success relies upon your ability to get the appropriate license or permit. What you really need, in the end, is to hear the logic & wisdom of a lawyer who knows everything that you want to do & every reason the mayor & the city council will say no. You need a proper guide in formal proceedings to counteract the idealists who will let your vision die on the vine because they refuse to acknowledge reality.  

TAURUS – Whether it involves a public municipal work project or an in-house special private project, rivals ask you & your people for assistance on a large-scale, ambitious infrastructure expansion. Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon qualify that your rivals are not seeking your creative or engineering input. As much as it seems that they offer you a second-rate deal, accept – that way, you will have a voice about what happens with the entire project down the line.  

GEMINI – You organized & consolidated your finances now better than you have in your entire life. This is extremely helpful, as Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon promise that financial institutions restructuring for the long-term future will reward clients & investors who have taken the time to get their own financial houses in order both for now & for the long term.  

CANCER – A lot of competition exists not only amongst huge cities but also small townships & villages. Unfortunately, Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon agree that you cannot trust what promotional material you read about townships, cities, real-estate companies & the conditions of the local schools. A lot of problems will never appear in written reports. Talk first to your own colleagues & associates & then to those of your spouse. Seek “the unwritten assessments.”  

LEO – Merchants: Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon declare that you will need to consider, constantly, how much & when you should raise your prices, particularly if you deliver your product via container ship internationally. Hidden fees which proliferate will show up nowhere in many invoices but will be included in final prices that differ from those price quotes & estimates you initially received. There is no reason for you or for anybody to be at the perpetual mercy of the cost of doing business. Until then, protect your own paper-thin profit margins.  

VIRGO – Many rivals anticipate the return of the professional workplace because they have been preparing to reinstate office politics which favor them. That may be all well & good for such truly annoying people, but Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon declare that you much prefer maintaining personal office space in more than one remote location so that you may delay participating in such wan & vapid “power moves” with truly passive-aggressive wimps.  

LIBRA – Bosses lie so as to exclude you – excluded you will be. Bosses don’t lie to you personally – Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon confirm that current projects do not concern you in any way. Were you overly preoccupied with summertime? Somewhat, yes. No modicum of ambition was involved in any of the tasks assigned. Do not berate – but do not forgive. Do not forget.  

SCORPIO – Read Sagittarius. Commercial real estate developers & food wholesalers: You seek entre into the ethnic food market on a wholesale level. Conversely, the proprietors of the ethnic food market seek their own self-determined way to Americanize or to Canadianize. From this vantage of transaction, Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon declare that your market’s vast & complex factions have plenty of business to discuss.  

SAGITTARIUS – Read Scorpio. You bring deep historical & linguistic background to a discussion amongst not only ethnic food wholesalers & retailers but also the local American & Canadian distribution & shipping markets. Specifically, Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon give you the podium so you can explain how the ethnic English North American disputes of yesteryear involved economic & Marxist, and not only political & racist, underpinnings. Unravel the wounds of yesteryear to inform all as to the active alliances of the current day.  

CAPRICORN – If you take yourself out of everybody’s way as a principal business partner, then Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon will more than welcome you as a knowledgeable consultant who knows the well-worn hamster trails & pitfalls of commerce like the back of your hand – even while asleep. Do not even ask for a buyout price – after current urgent business is completed, all will cooperate on a deal to give you a different role in the game which suits absolutely everybody.  

AQUARIUS – Everybody has been asking your advice about current business transactions, and you have answered everybody’s questions thoughtfully & thoroughly. However, Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon agree with you, quite uncomfortably, when you ask, “There’s just one thing that I really need to know: Is this individual legally licensed to do this? Because, if not, it can get all of you in a big heap of trouble.”  

PISCES – Organizing everything that you need to distribute & to send out in one consolidated place may seem like their first of a long list of things to do – but, in the end, Juno, Huya, Saturn, Chiron, Venus, 1998-BU48, Hidalgo, Pallas Athena, Uranus, 2002-CR46, Echeclus, the Sun, 2002-GZ32 & the Full Capricorn Moon declare that it is really about 97% al all that must be done. Getting that big load of junk organized from A to Z and from 1 to infinity will put you in exactly the position you need, whether the delivery people pick it up or move it along, or whether interminable complications arise. Get that part of the job done – then get yourself a lemonade!  

< Juno, the third asteroid to be discovered in 1804, was named after the faithful wife of the first & worst womanizer, Jupiter. Despite the behavior of her husband, Juno nevertheless rules marriage vows. Juno also rules those accouterments which women use to help attract their men, including jewelry & fashion, as well as (when well aspected) the healing power of sexual magic & (when badly aspected) the destructive power of sado-masochism.  

> Huya is a transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on March 10, 2000. Huya is the rain god of the Wayuu Indians of Venezuela & Colombia.  

# Chiron, named after the wounded centaur who sacrificed his immortality in return for the liberation of Prometheus (he who stole fire from the gods!) was the first centaur planet discovered back in 1977. Chiron, described as "the wounded healer" by Zane Stein & Barbara Hand Clow, bridges the gap between Saturn & Uranus, exhorting us to teach that which we most need to learn.  

(x) 1998-BU48 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on January 22, 1998. The orbit of 1998-BU48 traverses from the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto. For information on how to interpret 1998-BU48, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

Juan Antonio Revilla
(http://www.expreso.co.cr/centaurs/posts/naming.html)
postulates that 1998-BU48 should be named Alastor, after one of the four demon-steeds of Pluto's chariot.  

(y) Hidalgo is an asteroid named after Mexican priest and revolutionary Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the father of Mexican independence. Hidalgo, along with Thuringia and Westphalia, was discovered in 1920 by W. Baade at the Hamburg Observatory in Bergedorf, Germany. Hidalgo’s influence impels individuals to assert themselves in the service of a cause, or in the service of themselves, when more influential members of society refuse to grant such people well-deserved respect.  

(z) Pallas Athena, the second asteroid to be discovered in 1802, was named after the warrior queen who officially protected ancient Athens. Pallas Athena always thought before she acted to insure inevitable victory. As befits her mythological birth, wherein she sprung fully grown & clad as a warrior from the back of the head of Jupiter, Pallas Athena operates under the same principle as the Queen of Swords in the Tarot, "The densest thought penetrates matter."  

? 2002-CR46, officially named “Typhon”, is a transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on February 2, 2002. The orbit of 2002-CR46 traverses between the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto.  

$ 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.  

* 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 #2

Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius transits Retrograde Motion* from June 20 to October 19, 2021. It is healthy & natural to stop after surviving a stressful, enervating, harrowing life-threatening ordeal so as to hear & to feel the peace, the calm, the serenity. One may then feel the vibrations of silence energized by a recently departed tumult as one contemplates the value of one’s, as well as the value of the collective’s, life & lives. Those who do not take that moment to rest may assert that time rests for no man, but what they declare from the depths of their sorry souls is, “There is no rest for the wicked.”  

ARIES – Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius will now teach you that office politics never end. You cannot underestimate how some people will stoop to hurt you – but realize that you will not be there to witness it. Eschew power struggles with the unscrupulous & the rebellious.  

TAURUS – Sullen & envious heads stare at you malevolently with evil eyes because you finished a project which everyone needed with flair & style. Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius reminds the Bull that that evil eye is directed towards you because the envious know that they cannot hurt you, so they will attempt to spook you so that you will hurt yourself. Say a prayer requesting that the divinity dispel the toxins of evil thoughts. Enjoy the self-esteem borne of your accomplishment.  

GEMINI – A scout, a human resources representative or an academic recruiter misdiagnoses your exemplary performance statistics so that those who acquire your services misapply your skills & get lower performance for their trouble. This does not serve you or your ultimate client, team or school – but Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius states that it serves that scout, human resources representative or academic recruiter. Why? Crime & sin have veiled motivation, but all you need to know is that the devil is in the details.  

CANCER – Silence once again yields to the conflict of opposing discourse. Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius states that God will not allow you to rest in peace until you address the conflict from your adversaries. Why? Because there is no peace without justice.  

LEO – The very first item submitted to operations at the (bank) (law firm) (investment brokerage firm) (insurance agency) faces an interminable delay, “How brazen & lazy these unskilled low-level employees are!” You complain to upper management & upper management agrees. But you still must wait – Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius comments that upper management wants to know how brazen & lazy these unskilled low-level employees are.  

VIRGO – An adversary or partner holds short-term advantage over you – let them, as gracefully as you can. That way, Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius will give you time to refine & to perfect the enormous IT project you have just finished, but which supervisors have not yet reviewed, before they implement it. Smile & cooperate.  

LIBRA – Before you return to the bare-knuckled, bare-headed field of the political football gridiron, substitute for the workplace straw boss as the supervisor of the professional workplace playpen. Back in the day, as you earned your living in the adult Romper Room, you used to complain that it was meaningless – but Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius now invites you to earn your paycheck in an environment where it in unlikely that anybody will be arrested or killed.  

SCORPIO – A god or goddess who represents your romantic future makes an early exit, “Nice to meet you.” Chances are that you will not go travelling with them this summer – but Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius urges you to clean up your act now so that you will be able to travel them during February next year.  

SAGITTARIUS – As an elderly citizen dies within the extended family, a new child is often born – thus announces Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius with hope. Consider dispensing with the hostile political jokes which have already attracted the attention of malicious local police officers. Consider the importance of protecting an infant’s innocence.  

CAPRICORN – The problems of life are all the same everywhere, but not all of us experience them all, or all at the same time. Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius guarantees that you will make more friends if you simply sit down with whomever wants to talk until such time as one of you must leave. Forget any discussion of politics – it is your communication with your fellow man that determines your long-term future.  

AQUARIUS – You no longer need limit yourself to expressing political opinions, but you still must express what you say forthrightly & frankly, not in veiled references to ancient writing on the wall that require the listener to interpret your spoken hieroglyphics. What is of ultimate importance is that Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius puts you in different & dangerous circumstances which require your friends to save you . . . and anybody else who is worthy. Populism for the intellectually elite!  

PISCES – True & false friends approach. Retrograde Jupiter in Pisces & Aquarius confirms that you cannot distinguish one from the other. Some of these “friends” offer you opportunities to “volunteer” for them without pay. What is the benefit of the favor that they say they are doing for you?  Better that you remain alone with nothing to do with them than to fill up you time & mind with nonsense.  

* 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.

ARTICLE #3

Mercury in Gemini transits Retrograde Motion* from May 29 to June 23, 2021. Jupiter recently entered Pisces, the sign that rules, not only completion, but the polarities of virtue & sin – virtue as fulfillment, sin as betrayal, of duty. Much extreme work by Americans in every city & every state in the United States of America contributed to the historical infamies of late 2020, including violent riots in New York, Minneapolis, Portland & Seattle, the attempted litigation of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, the bombing of Nashville, Tennessee & the January 6, 2021 Capitol Building Insurrection. Judgment is nigh.  

ARIES – Retrograde Mercury declares that the work that you did during late 2020 in preparation for year-end events left different paper trails – and, if somebody wants to look for them, they will find them.  

TAURUS – Rationalization is the kryptonite of ethics. Retrograde Mercury suggests that somebody who wanted you to rationalize some evil they wanted you to perpetrate during late 2020 needed your skill sans your intelligence – or conscience. Just shrug neutrally.  

GEMINI – Whatever moral decisions you made at the end of 2020, you were all in. You are convinced that you were in the right while opponents insist that you were & are morally culpable. Retrograde Mercury nods its head, “So there you have it.” It all plays out now!  

CANCER – First question: Are you going on trial or into the hospital soon? Hopefully not. Second question: Are you going on vacation? Retrograde Mercury advises, “If you can, you should – just take precautions.”  

LEO – Clients will fire, hire or promote you now no matter what arguments you make to the contrary – and Retrograde Mercury adds that only time will tell if this is a blessing or curse in disguise.  

VIRGO – Bosses who resign because they failed not in their duty but in their logistics can hold their head high before the public, “I did my level best to the best of my ability.” Retrograde Mercury emphasizes that honor trumps success. Keep this lesson firmly in mind going forward.  

LIBRA – Prosecutors: A lot of dirtbag criminal defendants will attempt to play the slime option in the hopes that you will need their testimony in order to catch even bigger fish. In the end, especially now, Retrograde Mercury warns that such a prosecutorial strategy will come back to bite you. Drive a much harder & much more sparing moral bargain.  

SCORPIO – While escaping arrest from the Boston Police Department for his role in the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev ran over his brother & co-conspirator Tamerlan with an SUV that the two carjacked together. Retrograde Mercury smiles blackly, “There’s loyalty for you.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Your conscience tried to reason with you when you looked in the mirror, but you heard what you wanted to hear. Retrograde Mercury asserts that this is why you have true friends: True friends tell you what you don’t want to hear when you don’t want to hear it in such a way that they will not let you ignore them.  

CAPRICORN – Sort of like Marx’s Thesis on Feuerbach for the criminal element – “From each according to his ability to each according to his need” – Retrograde Mercury now seeks to punish conspiratorial participants by determining how much labor, money & influence they contributed.  

AQUARIUS – “I've been caught stealing once when I was five,” Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell sings on “Been Caught Stealing” – and then goes on to celebrate the joys of unpunished theft. Retrograde Mercury shakes its head as to this wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong immoral message. The time will come.  

PISCES – Retrograde Mercury demands that you punish those in your charge for the evils that they perpetrated in ways that they, and everybody else, will never forget it. Disturbingly, this will be easier for parents, who have good reason to hope that, further down the road, their children will reform. As for the mayor or the governor: It really might just be easier for you to lock the doors . . . and to throw away the key.

* 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.  

ARTICLE #4

Chiron* in Aries sextiles@ the North Node$ in Gemini from April 20 to June 22, 2021. Negotiations may prove more complex than quoting a mean number. Both sides may actually concede the necessity of establishing criteria & conditions in addition to amounts & deadline dates. Cool hot temperaments. Roll up shirt sleeves & get to intellectual heavy lifting.  

ARIES – Do not emotionally react to an adversary’s assertion of negotiating positions. Chiron sextile the North Node admonishes the hot-tempered – simply because enflamed temperaments are contagious. Respond to such assertions & negotiating positions with a question, “I’m not there yet – how did you derive such a conclusion?”  

TAURUS – Maintaining eye contact with a neutral temperament under the current influence of Chiron sextile the North Node will shake out those who bluff & lie from those who mean what they say. Until you can distinguish one from the other, stay silent.  

GEMINI – Adversaries may not want to accept your negotiating position as is, and may actually seek to reinvent the wheel by presenting to you a whole new proposal. Can you trust what adversaries put forth? Unless they include what you demand in the language with which you demanded it, Chiron sextile the North Node says, “No!” Discuss the terms of the current proposal with the terms that both of you used during the beginning of your negotiations.  

CANCER – Bosses change the subject of company-wide meetings under the current influence of Chiron sextile the North Node to discuss important issues of resource drainage & shrinkage in your professional workplace. Until somebody addresses these issues, real progress will be summarily ignored.  

LEO – Disgruntled clients demand that you fire employees who screwed up their orders & work assignments. Chiron sextile the North Node surmises that this may be a little more complicated than clients believe. Even so, you must do it. Make sure you get it right!  

VIRGO – Internal accountants cannot line-item veto the professional supplies & tools of corporate executives – that would be the cart pulling the horse. What becomes necessary under the current influence of Chiron sextile the North Node is for a more senior executive to review all budgets to determine who is hiding their professional “wish list” in the camouflage of baseline operations.  

LIBRA – Police detectives frequently refrain from arresting individuals they believe to be 1000% guilty because they will never be able to convict them based upon the current evidence – such as, as Chiron sextile the North Node depressingly announces, right now.  

SCORPIO – An employee or colleague who refused to stand up for or to validate your pet professional ideas as it gets simultaneously killed by budgeting coordinators did not betray you personally. Chiron sextile the North Node complains that “betray” is an ugly word – may you never need to use it accurately.  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians, actors, musicians: A business or creative partner already knows how simultaneously popular & unpopular your individual performance is – both the love & the hate make it the mark of genius. Furthermore, Chiron sextile the North Node declares that this business or creative partner does not wish to censor what you say or do – this partner strictly wishes to monetize it.  

CAPRICORN – Merchants: You are really angry at employees & ostensibly loyal customers who stole merchandise & money from you. You are extremely motivated to have them punished. Chiron sextile the North Node assures you, “And so you shall?” Because you will get what you want, expressing your wrath. . . will prove redundant.  

AQUARIUS – Bob Dylan’s “Positively Fourth Street” time again – time to tell your musical rival & old flame how unglad you are to see them. Well, rock & roll is the mandate. Still, at the end of the day, Chiron sextile the North Node implores you to realize, “It’s just a song.” You really don’t want some serial killer to start singing the Police’s misogynist classic “Every Move You Make” – do you?  

PISCES – What money you can invest in your child’s development as a musician or composer fulfills you emotionally – but, really, cut through the crap: Chiron sextile the North Node advises that you just buy the child a guitar or a saxophone – then dare them, “Burn down the house.” (“Put away the matches, fool. It’s just a manner of speaking & you know it!”)

* Chiron, named after the wounded centaur who sacrificed his immortality in return for the liberation of Prometheus (he who stole fire from the gods!) was the first centaur planet discovered back in 1977. Chiron, described as "the wounded healer" by Zane Stein & Barbara Hand Clow, bridges the gap between Saturn & Uranus, exhorting us to teach that which we most need to learn.

$ 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.

Mars transits Leo from June 11 to July 29, 2021. It only came to light after a lone New York State police officer close to the Canadian border shot the second of two escaped convicts from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York that the second prisoner shot & captured, David Sweat, announced that he & his partner, Richard Matt, had actually escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility, from which no prisoner in its history had ever escaped since being built in 1845, twice. The first time that Sweat escaped with Matt, Sweat explained, was merely a test run before “going live.” Like Sweat, Matt, a vicious murderer & willing accomplice, can & would pull his weight in any attempted escape. However, while Sweat, an extremely skilled handy man & devoted survivalist, had been preparing his mind, body & strategy for weeks prior to escape so that he would never, ever return to prison, Matt lacked the psychological initiative & acumen to anticipate & to counteract, proactively, the strategy wherein swarms of uniformed police officers would be hunting Sweat & Matt down in upstate New York until they caught Sweat or Matt or Sweat & Matt, dead or alive. Indeed, Sweat, who dumped Matt early on as a liability after he showed more initiative to drink booze than to escape a militarily coordinated law enforcement manhunt, evaded every cop in New York State who hunted him except one, the one cop who patrolled the forest on this side of the Canadian-U.S. border – and Sweat, who knew that this last man was his only & last barrier, ran! Sweat ran because, if he didn’t, he knew that this one officer would return him back to the big house – so the officer, an eagle eye in a hunter’s country, shot & hit Sweat, clipping his wings with the justice of law enforcement vested in him by the state.  

ARIES – You intend to prove your point. Proving that point will be a lot of hard work, but Mars in Leo knows that you do not fear hard work. You know that the individuals to whom you will prove your point will disregard your labor & the fruits thereof – but they will hear what you say.  

TAURUS – Mars in Leo flatly & bluntly states that episodes of explosive anger within your household & family will only succeed in attracting the local police.

GEMINI – An exciting philosophical or political discussion in a bar or bookstore may suddenly devolve into a loud screaming match where many people get arrested. If an adversary all of a sudden loses their temper, Mars in Leo advises that you withdraw – immediately, “For now, let’s agree to disagree. In the meantime, get home safe.”  

CANCER – Bosses can provide windfall profit by asking you to do significant overtime now. If you do so, Mars in Leo advises you to skip the socializing with the same old crowd. Realize both your current place under the spotlight & its inevitable consequences.  

LEO – Put your every last dollar towards developing international commerce. Otherwise, Mars in Leo denotes that individuals ostensibly on your side will try to work with other individuals as they watch bosses & regulators tangle you up on this side of the border. Get ready to make changes so that those bosses & regulators will not try to threaten you ever again.  

VIRGO – Install a second surveillance camera on your private property – but make sure that it is hidden from sight. Mars in Leo states that vandals & burglars intend to destroy the camera before letting loose on your property again. Be prepared so that you can bust them.  

LIBRA – Read Scorpio & Sagittarius. Your political ambitions or career seems to be causing mixed motives amongst your clients & employees. Indeed, Mars in Leo suspects, “Is one of these ‘clients’ or ‘employees’ trying to bribe you or to extort others?” Get a business partner to ask pointed questions.  

SCORPIO – Read Libra & Sagittarius. Be careful – Mars in Leo warns that if you are not cooperating with law enforcement as you should, one of your colleagues or employees may provide information to turn you in. Lawbreakers are entitled to no civilian loyalties!  

SAGITTARIUS – Read Libra & Scorpio. You may be liable for crimes that you have already committed. You may be loathe to flip to law enforcement like a rat in order to get time off your sentence. However, if you do your honest best to help cops bust one mean, dirty, polluted fish, then Mars in Leo suggests not only will you get the respect of both law enforcement & the judiciary as they diminish your punishment, but, more importantly, you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror for the rest of your life.  

CAPRICORN – Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain, put himself in a financial hole for the rest of his life by publishing the memoirs of Union General Ulysses S. Grant. Whether you are a publisher, art dealer, film producer or manager of a rock band, Mars in Leo advises you strongly against emulating him. Get out of debt.  

AQUARIUS – Mars in Leo respects that nobody, including you or your family, is bigger than the law. Yield to law enforcement.  

PISCES – Law enforcement: Train regularly at the gym. Mars in Leo expects somebody dangerous to bust out of prison or to escape police custody. Such convicts may be sharp & daring but chances are they are idiosyncratically out of shape or physically lacking. Be ready to outrun, to overtake, to bring down, to restrain.  

ARTICLE #6

Saturn in Aquarius trines* the North Node$ in Gemini from March 30 to October 11, 2021. A return to normal life is not an escape from COVID-19 – it is a resumption of the struggle for success & survival. Normal life presumes that we will show up to work in order to get paid so that we may pay our bills. Maybe, once in a while, you will get to see your friends.  

ARIES – A lot of people discussing nationwide return to normal life from various stages of COVID-19 quarantine refrain from discussing how much money this ordeal will cost us in taxes & other ancillary costs. Saturn trine the North Node suggests that such restraint will unwittingly foster very silent pessimism. Wait for clear signals from the White House & your local governor’s office. Don’t daydream about professional servitude & financial gloom.  

TAURUS – Saturn trine the North Node is your reward or punishment for how well you have managed your paycheck & various government stipends during the COVID-19 quarantine – and it is never too late to learn the lesson of strategic frugality.  

GEMINI – Planning on international travel, eh? “(Buenos Aires) (Shanghai) (Melbourne), here I come!” Saturn trine the North Node advises you to see your doctor first. A hospital room is much more expensive than a plane ticket!

CANCER – Talk with a broker or financial analyst about how to handle your long-term retirement plans or investments after the lifting of the COVID-19 quarantine. Saturn trine the North Node states that whatever you get now is what you get. Get a plan together for the level playing field.  

LEO – While your long-term client is content to let a new business partner hang themselves with their own excessive rope, Saturn trine the North Node denotes that your long-term client will treat a different new business partner with much more respect. Why? Because that different new business partner warrants it.  

VIRGO – Bosses granted you, colleagues & employees a generous learning curve on a new project or new technology. Saturn trine the North Node announces, “Learning curve complete.” Accelerate forthwith.  

LIBRA – Saturn trine the North Node coldly & harshly denotes that we will soon know who behaved properly & who behaved improperly during the circumstances surrounding the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election. Consider, and answer, not only, “What is the difference between a democratic election & litigation in a court of law?” but also, “What is the difference between a protest & a riot – or, conversely, a protest & an armed insurrection?”  

SCORPIO – You recently reflected about municipal corruption philosophically, “Before a criminal can go to jail, they must commit a crime & get arrested for doing it.” Saturn trine the North Node states that such perfidy shall soon come to pass – after all, character is fate, no? Have another cigar & play solitaire while you wait.  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: Those jokes that made your audience howl with raucous laughter back in February? Saturn trine the North Node warns, “Don’t tell them now.” But if you do tell them now . . . get out of town.  

CAPRICORN – Merchants, employers: Just as earlier in the year, Saturn trine the North Node connotes that you should only be concerned right now with making yourself solvent for the long haul. Whether or not you laid employees off in early 2021, what can you afford to do now?  

AQUARIUS – Those providing venture capital to you earlier in February offered you a virtual blank check at the time – but Saturn trine the North Node states that the time is coming where you must show what you have accomplished with it. Be proactive – invite those venture capitalists in for a little status quo pow wow. Correct flaws & make adjustments rapidly.  

PISCES – Professional deadlines under the new regime which proved easy to execute at the beginning become much more difficult & unforgiving under the current influence of Saturn trine the North Node. Do not try to get ahead of the conveyor belt. Keep time. Conserve adrenaline for the long haul.

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

ARTICLE #7

Saturn in Aquarius squares* Uranus in Taurus from January 19 to July 17, 2021. One principle of calculus states that if one is always approaching halfway to one’s goal, one will never reach it. One must overshoot one’s halfway threshold. Similarly, two individuals who haggle a price will come to one floor & one ceiling, but will find no reason to broach the gray area that defines the outer limits of their adversaries’ tolerance. Indeed, from that point on, the floor & the ceiling serve as the boundaries of an extremely stubborn “reverse magnetism.”  

ARIES – Americans might like to think that they are like George Bailey in Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, who would do anything for all his neighbors in his hometown of Bedford Falls. Truth be told, Saturn square Uranus views American much more like Professor Murray Siskind in Don DeLillo’s White Noise, who, in personally discussing Hitler scholar Professor Jack Gladney’s profound & random misfortune during the Airborne Toxic Event with his colleague, insists, “Better you than me.” Realize, however, that nobody is a saint or a sinner all the time. Stick your finger in the wind before asking your neighbor about “the weather.”  

TAURUS – Before, during, after & from the aftermath of the protests at the Michigan State Legislature in Lansing & the insurrection at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., the public expects the TV news anchor to look like an authority figure & those who object to the official state news as an armed American urban guerilla. Well, Saturn square Uranus reminds you that, back in the day, King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp dressed like a Wall Street banker. Let your own wardrobe send off your own personal message.  

GEMINI – Whatever the subject – astrology, philosophy, political science – Saturn square Uranus makes the Twin allergically sensitive to the phenomena wherein whoever underwrites that educational institution either approves or rejects developments in science & intellectual thought as “knowledge.” The capitalist superstructure is not the Gospel truth. Assert beliefs, knowledge & facts, unfolding through logic, which manifest your most cogent ideological arguments.  

CANCER – Bankers may invest a certain amount of money in your politically based social program – but Saturn square Uranus warns that a day may come when a banker asks you, “Why is this social program worth my debt?”  

LEO – A partner or rival agrees with you & your boss about everything except how much something costs. If you really want this agenda to manifest, then Saturn square Uranus suggests that you & your boss choose the higher number & force your partner or rival to come up with $X. No further negotiations!  

VIRGO – Saturn square Uranus strategizes that you forestall all professional intrigue by executing all your work remotely or in the office when nobody will ever be there.  

LIBRA – Politicians, especially liberals: Saturn square Uranus denotes that overpromising to your constituents guarantees massive embezzlement by colleagues whom you trust. Scale down the “agenda” for the short term.  

SCORPIO – You already agree that it is necessary to implement specific types of targeted social & business programs to recent college & high school graduates who simply do not deserve them– but Saturn square Uranus states that if somebody tries to infer that such is your moral duty, all the kumbaya & good feeling will blow up like a nuclear fart, “It is necessary because it is politically expedient – not because humans deserve anything.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: It will concretize your legacy to get onstage & to say, “I am not telling ‘a joke’ – I am telling the truth.” However, even so, Saturn square Uranus denotes that some people paid good money to hear you tell funny jokes! Easy come, easy go.  

CAPRICORN – Artists, Thespians, writers: Really – strictly political art fails. Instead, Saturn square Uranus recommends that you focus upon promoting the idea of, and doing art about, the futility of politics. Answer the question posed by Ken Kesey’s novel Sailor Song, “Of what use is love at the end of the world?”  

AQUARIUS – A political telemarketer calls & asks you to participate in a poll. Say no – but first, Saturn square Uranus encourages you to ask, “From what city are you calling? How’s the weather?” When they respond, tell them about the weather where you live. Then say, “Goodbye.”  

PISCES – Saturn square Uranus advises you to tell bosses, merchants, customers, vendors or whoever needs to know, “My price did not change because you cannot do math.” Don’t smile.  

* A Square is a disharmonious 90 degree aspect between or amongst planets transiting signs of like modality (modalities being Cardinal – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn; Fixed – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius; & Mutable – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

Saturn in Aquarius sextiles@
Chiron* in Aries
from January 6 to August 9, 2021.

Despite its oh-so-charming environs & well-earned affluence, the character of too many residents of the Capitol Hill District in Seattle has created many unnecessary problems for itself, from the days of its founding & naming, as residents shortsightedly named their neighborhood “Capitol Hill” before Washington State chose Olympia over Seattle as the state capitol, until the current day. The rambunctious exuberance of the local gay population remains fiercely celebratory as it disregards sex crimes with underage prostitutes which recently disgraced Seattle Mayor Ed Murray allegedly committed in Capitol Hill back in the Nineties, described at length by the Seattle Times’ Lewis Kamb & Jim Brunner  in “Lawsuit Alleges Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Sexually Abused Troubled Teen in 1980s,” even after Seattle Mayor Murray resigned after it became disturbingly clear how systematically the Capitol Hill resident & future Seattle Mayor included money for underage gay prostitutes within his personal budget as Capitol Hill demonstrated a much seamier side pre-gentrification during the late Eighties.

In the current day, the faith that such contemporary residents of Capitol Hill place in the historical fantasies of the Seattle General Strike of 1919 & the Occupy Wall Street Movement has led residents thereof to dismiss the Seattle Police Department (“SPD”) from any influence over CHOP (“Capitol Hill Occupied Protest”). The SPD, who spent the better part of twenty years dealing with the fallout of the strategic penetration of the Canadian-U.S. border, with a border crossing at Peace Arch, British Columbia & Blaine, Washington, by the British Columbian drug trafficking underworld, was willing to play along until they either figured out how to handle the situation or until it became necessary to intervene. Then, following the shooting & murder of a male teenage minor after midnight in Cal Anderson Park a little more than ten days after the SPD abandoned its East Precinct in Capitol Hill, as Reuter’s Sinéad Carew reported in “Teenager Killed in Seattle Protest Zone Shooting, One Wounded,” the SPD abandoned its charade. Which is as it should be, for while the SPD may be more than willing to play the fool in the service of healthy public relations & a strategic ruse, in the end, the Seattle Police Department . . . does not play.

ARIES – When Kamala Harris accused Joe Biden of pandering to racists in the first Democratic Primary debate of 2019, as Biden recounted negotiating with segregationists from Southern states in the U.S. Senate during the early Seventies, he restrained himself heroically! (Of course, Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard did her absolute best to humiliate Kamala in a subsequent debate.) Which brings us to the point of the current influence of Saturn sextile Chiron: You, Aries, like Kamala Harris, think you know how things work. You don’t. You must listen to those with more experience.  

TAURUS – You may not be able to identify any of the thieves wearing coronavirus masks looting your city after peaceful protests for George Floyd ended at sundown last summer. However, Saturn sextile Chiron guarantees that police have more than enough footage to discern the identify of those thieves wearing masks as they now experiment with face recognition software. These looters will be identified eventually – some sooner than later – and they will be punished. Oh, yes, the FBI will be keeping those files!  

GEMINI – The recent Jupiter-Saturn conjunction & the upcoming transit of Pluto in Aquarius from 2023 to 2044 suggest that current astrology articles will demonstrate social & political bias. Saturn sextile Chiron denotes that true astrological analyses are based upon astrological aspects & data – not political & social trends. Keep your nose alert for deceitfully crafted disinformation.  

CANCER – While there is nothing wrong with choosing a female as a candidate for political office, Saturn sextile Chiron now wonders if the social agenda dwarfs the political agenda. Is it time to reread Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged – no matter what your political party?  

LEO – A savvy & disciplined business partner knows what it takes for you to further your ambition to do busines internationally or to pursue a higher academic degree. Furthermore, Saturn sextile Chiron declares that you may in fact need to redress your own optimistic timeline, “Fine! As long as the progress we make is real.” Good attitude!  

VIRGO – Saturn sextile Chiron insists that you can make no progress in your power struggles with your bosses unless you have the unconditional backing of your most experienced, skilled colleagues.  

LIBRA – Once all your professional & political allies stop flattering your genius business partner, Saturn sextile Chiron advises you to find one such ally who did not flatter that expert so ebulliently. Get this ally to expound upon some home truths upon which that genius business partner needs to act on immediately. Get this ally to tell this genius business partner some home truths that actually gets that genius business partner to do so.  

SCORPIO – You need to recalibrate your management skills so that your supervision is airtight & absolute whether you, colleagues & employees work remotely or work in the office. Saturn sextile Chiron denotes that this absolutely requires that both you, colleagues & employees must work both remotely & work in the office in every possible alternative combination. Separate the problems created strictly by venue. Separate the problems created strictly by personnel. Analyze.  

 SAGITTARIUS – The standup comedian in your novel told a very funny joke over which the audience in your novel did not laugh but which makes the reader howl – because it told the truth. Saturn sextile Chiron considers, “Knowing this, how can you rewrite the joke so that it is funny to a standup audience? How would it look within a play?” Make that joke elastic to form.  

CAPRICORN – Younger family members do not understand that how you deal with the family in your household impacts your family’s politics within the community. Saturn sextile Chiron suggests that you try to explain this phenomenon to them by telling them a story, “Do you think that our neighbors would look at our family differently if, one day, you & all your brothers & sisters came home wearing formal military uniforms?”  

AQUARIUS – Refrain from expressing anger. Saturn sextile Chiron denotes that whatever you say will be misconstrued. Indeed, refrain from expressing anything. If somebody must say something, appoint a proxy.  

PISCES – Professional situations which require one individual in lieu of a large group work well for you under the current influence of Saturn sextile Chiron – as long as the parameters of your decision-making authority are very clearly defined. Of course, people will try to bully you. How funny!  

* Chiron, named after the wounded centaur who sacrificed his immortality in return for the liberation of Prometheus (he who stole fire from the gods!) was the first centaur planet discovered back in 1977. Chiron, described as "the wounded healer" by Zane Stein & Barbara Hand Clow, bridges the gap between Saturn & Uranus, exhorting us to teach that which we most need to learn.

Echeclus< conjuncts* 1996-TP66> in Cancer from May 24 to July 16, 2021. The explicit abdication of responsibility of the Executive Branch of the Federal Government in coordinating a response to the coronavirus pandemic (U.S. President Donald J. Trump said, “I don't take responsibility at all”) would prove to be a blessing in disguise if all 50 governors of the 50 U.S. states were equally capable & playing by the same rules. That way, instead of the President of the United States managing one country with separate states as 50 entities, 50 governors would manage one state each with separate counties as X entities. Then, when & if the Executive Branch would again claim responsibility for the response to the coronavirus pandemic, that President would be able to manage 50 states with a detailed understanding of 50 groups of counties. Unfortunately, one cannot compare New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer & California Governor Gavin Newsom with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp & Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. The data will not translate. The workload has expanded exponentially.  

ARIES – Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 in Cancer encourages you to contact extended family members if you have not been in touch with each other since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Make a list, then contact every name on it. Get on the same page.  

TAURUS – The local area has changed. Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 advises you to research which local merchants went out of business & which ones filled the power vacuum. Acclimate yourself to the new local order.  

GEMINI – The coronavirus pandemic upset all your financial long-term calculations. Now, Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 announces that it is the time to pick up the pieces & to look towards the long term. Research your current holdings & the lay of the land. Make no plans or prognostications, however, beyond the entrance of Pluto into Aquarius in November 2024.  

CANCER – Cancer the Crab may be the one sign that gained strength & power during the coronavirus quarantine. Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 therefore exhorts you to upgrade your ambitions about what is now possible – without increasing your expenditures. Specify, with conditions, on paper.  

LEO – Hidden power brokers & undeclared enemies in the professional workplace have studied the cost of certain workflow issues & now have arrived at an idea of how to change them. Will they benefit all or the select few, including those making changes? Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 replies that this depends upon the character, or lack thereof, of these individuals. You have no influence over their deliberation process or final decision. Watch & wait.  

VIRGO – Local parents, particularly mothers, with their influence over the student bodies, have seen all that they need regarding the athletic programs in your local schools. Indeed, rumors that you hear under the current influence of Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 are true – these local parents have formed a formidable strategy to launch political activity in order to secure changes over the next three school years. Determine where you stand.  

LIBRA – New professional management & new bosses of current bosses will determine under the current influence of Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 if your company – or if you professionally as a manager – employs employees to edify & to prosper or if you intend & strategize to exploit them.  

SCORPIO – You learn what you need to do to do business internationally, to publish or to attend graduate school under the current influence of Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66. Roll up your shirt sleeves. Get your ducks in a row.  

SAGITTARIUS – You have succumbed to some level of deadly vice in the past ten years – sometimes too much, often only occasionally. More importantly, Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 teaches you, more thoroughly than is comfortable, why vice is vice. The object of sinful desire is not inherently sinful – the sin lies within your own personal intention towards it in your relationship with the world.  

CAPRICORN – A spouse or business partner seems much more mysterious to you, as if their entire personality has changed after buying a new pair of glasses. Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 clarifies: For whatever reason, this spouse or partner now sees the whole picture – including you – in hyperdetail. Why now? Because it is necessary for their survival.  

AQUARIUS – You are never going to determine why the workplace is designed why it is because bosses have ulterior motives, which include keeping employees unconscious of their role in that workplace. However, Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 suggests a better solution that is much more accessible: Discuss frankly with such individuals what motivates fellow employees & colleagues to endure such manipulation in order to keep their jobs.  

PISCES – You ask a child, “How is everything?” The child replies, “I don’t know – what is the everything about which you ask?” Echeclus conjunct 1996-TP66 congratulates the child, “Good question!” Answer the question fully – until the child feels that you are truly being one million percent (1,000,000%) totally honest!

< 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.

Saturn in Aquarius
transits Retrograde Motion1
from May 23 to October 12, 2021.

Individuals experiencing their first Saturn Return during the current transit of Saturn in Aquarius:

 A) Saturn transited Aquarius
from February 7, 1991 to January 28, 1994;  

have already experienced vaster amounts of Aquarian energy in their short lives that those individuals experiencing their third & second Saturn Returns, respectively:

B) Saturn transited Aquarius
from February 24, 1932 to Valentine’s Day 1935; and
C) Saturn transited Aquarius
from January 4, 1962 to December 16, 1964.  

Individuals born in the early Nineties now experiencing their first Saturn Return have already experienced the complete transit of two outer planets, Uranus & Neptune (Neptune transited Aquarius conjunct2 1999-OX3^ for several years!) through Aquarius in their lives:

D) Uranus transited Aquarius
from April 2, 1995 to December 30, 2003;
E) Neptune transited Aquarius
 from January 30, 1998 to February 3, 2012;
F) 1999-OX3^ transited Aquarius
from February 11, 1998 to February 15, 2009;

as

G) Neptune conjuncted2 1999-OX3^ in Aquarius
from February 11, 1998 to Halloween 2006.  

as well as the complete transit of, amongst other centaur planets, Chiron< & Nessus>:

H) Chiron< transited Aquarius
from February 21, 2005 to February 8, 2011.
I) Nessus> transited Aquarius
from January 30, 2005 to February 7, 2015;

as Chiron< conjuncted2 Nessus> and Neptune, respectively, for consecutive years:

J) Chiron< conjuncted2 Nessus> in Aquarius
from February 21, 2005 to February 18, 2007; and
K) Chiron< conjuncted2 Neptune in Aquarius
from February 2, 2009 to April 20, 2010.  

Unlike these individuals born in the early Thirties & the early Sixties, individuals born in the Nineties can research aspects by those transiting outer planets & centaur planets during their lifetime to give themselves an idea of what Saturn is all about. More likely, however, those individuals born during the Thirties & Sixties know the value of the knowledge of their own astrological chart & their natal Saturn in order to research Saturn’s as well as outer planets & centaur planets to prepare for not only the balance of Saturn’s transit through Aquarius:

L) Saturn transits Aquarius
from March 22, 2020 to March 6, 2023;  

but also for the long-term transit of Pluto through Aquarius:              

M) Pluto transits Aquarius
 from March 24, 2023 to January 19, 2044.  

ARIES – Retrograde Saturn augurs a change, not in professional & political alliances, but of how they are configured. Life becomes a lot less entertaining – you no longer become a professional or political ally because you are interesting, ambitious or exciting. The concept of “political capital” dawns on you – this person whom you always believed to be boring actually does what they say they do. No, this is not unique!  

TAURUS – The educated youth of today possess their own ideas of government in light of how they followed President Donald J. Trump’s twin impeachments on television, Google News, Twitter and, occasionally, The New York Times and The Washington Post. Retrograde Saturn declares that wise educated youth will not only ask how middle-aged parents followed President Bill Clinton’s impeachment around the time that Google launched its IPO in late 1998, but also how relatively young Boomer grandparents followed both the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago & President Richard M. Nixon’s impeachment & resignation six years later. Celine Dion then quotes Walter Cronkite, “And that’s the way it is!”  

GEMINI – Do astronomers hold philosophers in the same contempt as they do astrologers? Truth be told, astronomers, who cannot use the scientific method because they cannot contain planets & galaxies in a laboratory, then control the environment, measure, quantify & catalogue, whereas astrologers which do not do the same often sound like amateur part-time psychotherapists. Even so, the discovery & analysis of how many planets of all types of description since the discovery of Pholus in 1992 has spawned a change in how many people view life – a purview for which, according to the current influence of Retrograde Saturn, astrologers seem very well equipped.

CANCER – Sex is more exotic & exciting as a teenager than as an adult because it is always a struggle to find a place (Topher Grace & Laura Prepon as Eric Forman & Donna Pinciotti from That 70s Show make a cameo appearance) to “Do it.” Retrograde Saturn now asks, “Will homosexuality lose its exotic, forbidden taboo vibe now that the reality of gay marriage has become just another tax write-off?”  

LEO – You recently gave your most important partner short shrift, and, to make up for it, you showed undue respect to a litany of unworthy pretenders. Retrograde Saturn demands that you rectify these misaligned priorities – which will be more awkward & complex than it appears.  

VIRGO – IT professionals, computer programmers, software engineers: Now is not to the time to outperform. Retrograde Saturn denotes that now is the time to stay just ahead of the curve – albeit with flawless workmanship & an ironclad verbal & mental grasp of what you, singular & plural, are doing.  

LIBRA – Aspiring politicians: You bemoan your fate as current-day underdog prematurely & incorrectly. Retrograde Saturn reminds you that now is the time to gain experience for the transit of Pluto through Aquarius from 2023 to 2044. For the moment, earn your long-term credentials by making your mistakes on the “chitlin’ circuit.”  

SCORPIO – After Mayor Gerald McCann went to prison in 1992 for wire fraud on a corrupt Florida real estate deal, Jersey City had a wide-open ballot to determine the contenders in a general election, the winner of which – Mayor Bret Schundler – became a harbinger for the current day corporate & gentrification juggernaut of Mayor Steven Fulop. Therefore, Retrograde Saturn advises the Scorpion to consider Jersey City while they develop a philosophically utilitarian attitude about municipal corruption: Breakdown must eventually yield to buildup.  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: You still tell the same edgy jokes that you did a year ago as you shocked & entertained your audience’s polite sensibility. Now, most of your audience still laughs while some call you foul & vulgar names to their companions. Retrograde Saturn says that this is a sign that you work is not only stale, but actually spoiling. Take the hint seriously.  

CAPRICORN – You listen extremely closely to other people in conversation as you study trends by reading & watching the news. That’s the problem! Retrograde Saturn says that you’re looking too hard – but, for Capricorn, that’s only natural. Don’t chase ideas away when they try to approach you.  

AQUARIUS – Whether or not you had been aware that, when Saturn transits the 1st house of basic personality, one says & does some foolish things, Retrograde Saturn guarantees that, now, you will learn that lesson as you learn about all of the foolish things you said & did in the past year or so. (Why are you finding out now? Because the law of cause & effect is broken when Saturn transits that 1st house. And by the way – that thing that you did last Christmas? How irresponsible & stupid!)  

PISCES – Whatever slowed you down over the past two years, you now begin to pick up speed. However, Retrograde Saturn reminds you not to overexert yourself. This is all “pre-season” for the aftermath of COVID-19. You must only get ready so that you can run with the pack after the referee shoots the starting gun. Pace yourself.  

^ 1999-OX3 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on July 21, 1999. The orbit of 1999-OX3 traverses between the orbits of Uranus & Pluto. For information on how to interpret 1999-OX3, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

Juan Antonio Revilla
(http://www.expreso.co.cr/centaurs/posts/naming.html)
postulates that 1999-OX3 should be named Aethon, after one of the four demon-steeds of Pluto's chariot.  

< Chiron, named after the wounded centaur who sacrificed his immortality in return for the liberation of Prometheus (he who stole fire from the gods!) was the first centaur planet discovered back in 1977. Chiron, described as "the wounded healer" by Zane Stein & Barbara Hand Clow, bridges the gap between Saturn & Uranus, exhorting us to teach that which we most need to learn.  

> 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 #11

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?”  

< 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. For information on how to interpret Bienor, formerly 2000-QC243, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

> 1996-TL66 is an unnamed scattered-disk object (SDO) transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on October 9, 1996. 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. For information on how to interpret 1996-TL66, note reference to Jonathan Dunn below.  

Jonathan Dunn
(http://ephemeral.info)
postulates that 1996-TL66 should be named Nero, after the emperor who presided over the fall of Rome.

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

ARTICLE #12

Uranus conjuncts* Albion< conjuncts* 1996-TR66> in Taurus from April 9, 2020 to May 12, 2022. The blood rivalry that drives the plot which John Richardson develops & unfolds in The Canadian Brothers during the War of 1812 between the British, not only of England but also of Upper Canada, and the newly formed United States of America began some fifty years earlier during Pontiac’s War, circa 1763 – again, in a plot which John Richardson develops & unfolds in Wacousta. During Richardson’s depiction of Pontiac’s War, as the British & a loose confederacy of Indian tribes led by the highly honored yet wily Ottawan chief Pontiac conspired & fought to hold Fort Detroit at the northern end of the Detroit River in Lake St. Clair, the eponymous anti-hero of Richardson’s saga recounts his early military career with the British Colonel in charge of Fort Detroit, Charles de Haldimar, to Clara, the daughter of Colonel de Haldimar whom Wacousta had just recently captured, and how he fell from the good graces of the British military while engaging in a romantic battle for the heart of Clara’s mother, Clara Beverley, with his current & unending arch-foe, Charles de Haldimar, “I have said that our intimacy excited surprise amongst our brother officers. It did; for all understood and read the character of your father, who was as much disliked and distrusted for the speciousness of his false nature, as I was generally esteemed for the frankness and warmth of mine.”  

ARIES – In a military fort, a strict commander can ensure absolute compliance, as there is no way for soldiers to break rules without getting caught. To break any rules, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 demand that you ask permission from the strict commander – because your peers will not tolerate it. Better to suck it up with the rest of them.  

TAURUS – Your staunch obedience to rules in strict & repressive circumstances confuses your colleagues, who see such strict & repressive circumstances as anathema to your self-interest. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 states that what these colleagues don’t know is that you have found a way for such strict & repressive circumstances to serve your self-interest. Keep all of this to yourself.  

GEMINI – When prices fluctuate, you want to know why – there must be an answer. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 give you the impression that prices now fluctuate because of some individual’s unethical, short-term, misguided & unenlightened self-interest which causes hardship to many & undue exposure to all. Investigate.  

CANCER – Somebody seeks permission from one in charge to act in contradistinction to formalized orders. Will one in charge grant the request? Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 reply that this depends upon the inherent core legitimacy of those formalized orders & whether or not the request violates the reason such formalized orders exist.  

LEO – While those under your charge consider making requests to you to relieve the protocol under which all labor, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 smile as they watch you actively consider ways to make such protocol stricter!  

VIRGO – Aficionados of literature & art: You do not, under any circumstances, favor diversity for its own sake – but you don’t think in terms of conformity to Eurocentrism, either. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 therefore make your vocation even tougher: Just because some smug, jaded subscriber to The New Yorker has not heard of a writer or an artist does not mean that that writer or artist is some helpless hayseed provincial. Continue forward in your efforts to expand the canon – including reading your subscription to The New Yorker in order to keep track of breaking updates to contemporary dogma.  

LIBRA – While Robert Penn Warren focuses upon how power in Louisiana state politics pollutes Louisiana Governor Huey Long’s as Louisiana Governor Willie Stark’s, eternal soul, in All the King’s Men, John Dos Passos focuses upon how power in Louisiana state politics pollutes Tyler Spotswood’s eternal soul , as Tyler Spotswood works for Louisiana Governor Huey Long as Louisiana Governor Chuck Crawford in Number One, the second book of Dos Passos’ trilogy District of Columbia. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 all agree that, if the reader does deep enough in each book, the reader will learn that what lead’s Stark & Spotswood to corruption is the same motivation: Resentment against someone in power who owns their soul.  

SCORPIO – Even partners that have known each other for many years will become uncharacteristically reticent, almost as if they interpret a verbal question or even a personal greeting as a reason to defend themselves. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 explain that this is because so many other people who talk to those long-term partners in order to jerk them around in all sorts of unexpected ways. It therefore behooves you, if you want your relationships with such partners to return to normal, that you find a way to regain their trust.  

SAGITTARIUS – Whether you deal with employees, colleagues or bosses, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 remind you that everybody is adjusting to new sets of workplace circumstances, sometimes on a daily, and sometimes on an hourly, basis. Make personal allowances for shared chaos.  

CAPRICORN – Certain artists or musicians inclined to experiment can nevertheless, if necessary, revert to their signature style if they feel that they have led their core audience too far out on a limb. Whether you are an artist, musician or otherwise, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 advise you to determine what your own contrivance for safety & security is when you don’t want to take any more risks.  

AQUARIUS – The coronavirus pandemic makes everybody want to get out of town – but the coronavirus pandemic emphasizes that getting out of town won’t do any good. As such, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 strongly advises the lone Aquarian to make their home not their castle but their single occupancy only insane asylum so that you will be able to co-exist with the lunatics in your family without drooling or biting.  

PISCES – As far as you are concerned, the rules are for everyone. Whether or not you are law enforcement, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66 expect the Big Fish to enforce the rules – and who exactly is going to stop you?  

< Albion is the first “cubewano” or low-eccentricity transneptunian object (TNO) (named after its provisional designation 1992-QB1), located more than halfway between the orbits of Neptune and Pluto at aphelion discovered on August 30, 1992. Albion (which is also the ancient Greek name for the island of Great Britain) is named after the son of Poseidon, who, along with his brother Dercynus or Bergion, died during their attack upon Hercules as he passed through Albion’s homeland of Liguria.

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

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 advises you 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.

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

ARTICLE #15

Pluto in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion* from April 27 to October 7, 2021, while Amycus! in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion* from April 28 to October 2, 2021. The core of the legacy of former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton lies in the fact that she immediately telegraphed during her husband’s first term as President that she intended to pursue a political career in her own right. While massive resentment resulted because not once did former First Lady Clinton acknowledge that she would launch such a career on her husband’s coattails, it also differed significantly from the political dynasty begun by former President George H. W. Bush, in that, as man of the house in his generation, President H.W. pursued office in much the same way as Texas Governor & President George W. and Florida Governor Jeb, respectively, did. In such context, the Bush model, truly a traditional “nuclear” family, allows for those pursuing no grand political ambitions more than the Clinton model, more of a gender-equal opportunity alliance which de-emphasizes “family.” As such, while it is currently premature to determine what path former First Lady Michelle Obama & her two daughters, Malia & Sasha, will take, it becomes more interesting, given how former President Donald Trump’s children Donald Jr., Eric & Ivanka, seek to dominate the headlines & the spotlight, how behind-the-scenes family members in previous Presidential administrations, including Chelsea Clinton, Billy Bush, Billy Carter & Jenna Hager Bush, have more to say than family members with explicit political ambitions, including Wyoming Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney & Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush.  

ARIES – While Caroline Giuliani earns a criminal record for shoplifting while pursuing a career as a writer for Vanity Fair discussing sexual threesomes & pansexuality, her brother Andrew Giuliani ponders launching a campaign as Republican candidate for governor against incumbent Democrat Andrew Cuomo. Where does all this leave former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani? Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, merely shrug – here is a man who, for this first of three marriages, married his cousin. Fallout is expected.

TAURUS – No matter which position, no matter what age, every member of the multigenerational police caste Reagan family in the weekly TV drama Blue Bloods is motivated by their brother, Joe Reagan, assassinated whistleblower of the rogue cop criminal organization Blue Templar. Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, recall the brooding Irish-American clan as they ponder public reactions to cops. Never underestimate a bloodline or brotherhood based upon the irrational & ruthless righteousness of the dead.  

GEMINI – As the generation which graduated college to enter Wall Street during the Reagan Bull Market of the Eighties begins to retire or, in the case of Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon, take over, Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, would like to take time to note that the idea of the place called “Wall Street” as the financial capital of America is an anachronism – most business in the financial markets is done far away from Lower Manhattan. The shingle for Brown Brothers Harriman at 140 Broadway serves simply as a reminder . . . for those who knew in the first place.  

CANCER – While you are always unpleasantly surprised to learn that your spouse’s family vetted you before allowing you to marry into their family name, Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, will outright disturb you as you discover how deeply such vetting penetrated – and how unconditional the terms were that you passed.  

LEO – Whether you are dealing with New York City institutions like Goldman Sachs or Sherman & Sterling, founded in the 19th century, or Joe’s, the iconic restaurant whose founding predates the founding of its own city, Miami Beach, by one year, such institutions maintain internal institutional memories about particular employees & types of employees that endure, sometimes for years & sometimes for generations. Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, signify that good reasons exist why such employers & colleagues remember these individuals – these individuals become “types” who either facilitate or inhibit that institution’s growth. Listen closely as you glean “the moral” from these “morality plays.”  

VIRGO – Student athletes: The virtue of a former local athlete’s historical legacy throws down the gauntlet to the entire team. However, Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, note that when a dark side exists, everybody knows it, but nobody acknowledges it. Disregard no such devils, lest they hover over your persona or progress.  

LIBRA – Whether on a city, state, provincial or national level, certain political families – the Kennedys of New England, the Daleys of Chicago, the Fords of Ontario, the Cuomos of New York, the Bushes of Texas & Florida – seek to dominate politics by getting elected so that their influence continues whether anybody in the family is elected or not. Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, remind you that power is not always vested in City Hall or the State Capitol. Respect the flesh & blood ghosts of yesteryear’s administrations.  

SCORPIO – If your political, entertainment or economic power originated from your parents’ successful career you somehow inherited, make reference to it sparingly. Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, state that the only appropriate moment to invoke a glorious past is as you expand from it to a more momentous future.  

SAGITTARIUS – Charlie Sheen traded on his father Martin Sheen’s name to commence a career in show business. However, whereas Martin played the role of President of the United States Josiah Bartlet in The West Wing, Charlie parodied the Devil Incarnate as Charlie Harper in Two and a Half Men. How come this arrangement didn’t work for Kansas City Chief Head Coach Andy Reid & his son, Chief Outside Linebacker Coach Britt Reid? Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, say, “Simple.” Martin & Charlie don’t play for the same team – and neither makes a pretense about it.  

CAPRICORN – While a husband or wife from a powerful family can keep their spouse hostage, Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, posit that the reverse is also true. As railroad magnate James Taggert discovered after marrying dime store clerk Cherryl Brooks in Atlas Shrugged, the spouse with the prominent name endures specific vulnerabilities. Don’t overplay any hands in marital or sexual politics.  

AQUARIUS – Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, declare that you have already done enough damage with your casual observation, “The Trump family would have you believe that the Trump Organization is really a meritocracy based upon individual achievement.” You may step down from the microphone.  

PISCES – As much as a true & deep friend that you are to that very prominent family, Pluto & Amycus, both Retrograde in Capricorn, state that that is where your role & status end – exactly as both you & they like it. “Even though they are not like anybody else at all,” you say, “they are just like everybody else everywhere. As for me – I enjoy my privacy.”

* 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 Gemini
from June 4, 2020 to December 21, 2021.

 “First, do your homework,” the trader said to the investor. “Where do the distributors get its food? Where does the manufacturer get its parts? Traders already know these facts, but you seek to leverage facts you don’t know. The interruption in the supply chain that you see in three months, in six months, across the ocean? If your information is correct, traders already know it & account for it in their price. Airlines use fuel today that they bought in 2016, 2018 at 2015 prices. You can complain that it is unfair all that you want – traders get the information first. That is their job.

“You disregard my advice & you invest,” the trader continues. “You take your position – and all the traders who know what they are doing . . . know what you are doing. Or, rather, what you want to do. You are exposed to the light – because you think you know everything.

“Therefore,” the trader continues, “when the real player, who will fool everybody, including the traders, makes a move – buying all the wood in Canada, buying all the grapes in Chile, dumping millions of barrels of oil onto the market – you will be like that fly who hits the windshield on the freeway in Genesis’s The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.”  

ARIES – You’ve ignored the relationships between merchants, religious leaders & law enforcement in your local area for years – the entire matrix seemed too provincial for your sensibility & focused upon local citizenry whom you view contemptuously as mediocre. Now, defying your prejudices, the North Node in Gemini clarifies exactly who runs life where you live. Stop being so smug. Be alert as overbearing egomaniacs & foreign demons try to seize power as your new feudal overlord.  

TAURUS – Small adjustments to your daily life & incremental business risks yield to you advantages that you can eventually consolidate into a working business enterprise. The North Node in Gemini particularly favors building your local profile by strengthening the electronic correspondence between your various social media interfaces & your local presence. Automatize correspondence before you monetize it. Confirm that you are doing business with “true fans.”  

GEMINI – Politics & new political regimes don’t change you. However, the North Node in Gemini guarantees that if you study the changes in astronomy & astrology since 1992, and how these planets influenced your life & basic personality, you would look at politics, religion, your family & your face in the mirror much differently – and with more information than you can assimilate for many years.  

CANCER – Neighbors will unapologetically & brazenly intrude upon your business. If you tell them to go screw, it might start a hostile running feud. However, as long as you are doing nothing illegal, the North Node in Gemini may afford you no choice but to engage in conflict. However, rather than set up a personal confrontation with such enemies, call the police on them first. Ask law enforcement how to set up a restraining order. Show that you mean business.  

LEO – Put sales on the back burner. The North Node in Gemini signifies that never before has your existing clientele known so deeply what they need & want. Allow the deep satisfaction of your old clientele to attract your new, very powerful, extremely wealthy clientele.  

VIRGO – Professional ambition? The whole process seems too political for your taste. Except that, under the current influence of the North Node in Gemini, you move ahead in the world by doing what Virgo does naturally: Fixing intractable technical problems. Engineer as visionary CEO – the revenge of Rex Tillerson!  

LIBRA – Thinking of litigation? Sure, the North Node in Gemini favors litigation for you – but, ultimately, a judge decides. A lawyer without a client is unemployed. A judge can claim two plus two equals five – or is that three plus three? Why bother? Roll the dice – run for office. Be your own person.  

SCORPIO – Business partners don’t want to work with you anymore? Your spouse wants to divorce you? Don’t wait for the betrayal – the North Node in Gemini encourages you to cut them a deal. You want your freedom, too – why not? Make a clean break.  

SAGITTARIUS – Certain savvy friends are the only people on earth with whom you see eye to eye because they not only understand the otherworldly, enormous, complex philosophies that you automatically presume, but they also validate them & in fact discuss them with you to refine them. The North Node in Gemini asks, “Can the two of you go into business together – perhaps publishing some of your mutual genius ideas?”  

CAPRICORN – Merchants: If you really want to stop large-scale retail theft, then the North Node in Gemini suggests that you hire armed security not only for your front door but to wander within the aisles of your retail establishment. No? Okay – so how are you going to make a show of force for the next wave of extremely evolved, mutated thieves?  

AQUARIUS – Apply your most esoteric political ideologies & philosophies to music theory. If Robert Fripp could do this on Let the Power Fall, the North Node in Gemini insists, “So can the Waterbearer!”  

PISCES – In order for family members to become a success in the world, the North Node in Gemini states that they must survive the devastation of your local areas . . . & their own lower selves. Morality & discipline form the roadmap of survival. Evolve or die – but, if you do evolve, the sky is no longer the limit.  

$ 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.
