Chiron* enters Aries, while 2003-CO1^ in Capricorn trines1 Echeclus< conjunct2 Bienor> in Taurus, as Pandora? in Pisces not only squares3 Jupiter in Sagittarius but also sextiles4 2001-KF77! in Capricorn, while Uranus in Aries opposes5 Pallas Athena# in Libra, as Venus conjunct2 Saturn conjunct2 Amycus$ in Capricorn sextiles4 Mercury conjunct2 Neptune in Pisces during the Full Virgo Moon on February 19, 2019. The smart money has appraised the level of competition across all fields of endeavor. Its ultimate analysis: All participants, broadly, have divided themselves into two distinct camps. The philosophy of the first camp: Break down the infrastructure so that those accustomed to market dominance will be unable to execute at will, will be unable to pick up any significant speed – then pounce on them when they flounder as a result of an inability to make connections. The mandate of the second camp: Never play down to the level of your competition. Execute fundamentals. Follow through. Good habits are their own reward & bad habits are their own punishment. Find the solution within the problem.  

ARIES – Important, well-informed leaders have already explained to you the prioritization of the items on the agenda. Therefore, Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon emphasize that it is not important, at the moment, to fix machines & protocol which are broken – what is important is to execute the prioritized items on the agenda with the people, machines & protocol that still work.  

TAURUS – Bureaucrats, third-party vendors & clients withhold information & paperwork that you need to pay bills & to submit all types of applications in an expedited manner. Even so, Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon that the most disciplined members of your infrastructure provide you with all the money & information that you need to do without what is withheld from you temporarily. Call up all applicable parties to request extensions. Otherwise, pay in full on time – if not early. Maintain self-reliance even if it costs you more money.  

GEMINI – Even if most of your company is committed to getting the expenses for the projects way under budget, your budget will only be as solvent as your most profligate participant. Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon confirm that such profligate participant, or even two or three, very much exist. Your mission: Get your own house in order as early as possible – then, alternatively, put pressure on, or offer all sorts of help to, those profligate participants who have no idea what they are doing!  

CANCER – A professional rival who has been using shortcuts in order to get to deadlines faster because an employee on their team either did not understand the shortcuts, tried to do the right thing & messed up the project or actually blew the whistle on your professional rival. Because you now have a chance at either a long-term promotion or a more prestigious position at your firm, Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon make it incumbent upon you to point out the undisciplined ways of your professional rivals as you demand that everybody on your team do everything by the book . . . no matter how long it may take.  

LEO – Delay closing deals with new clients or big new deals with existing clients until you iron out all confusion & complications regarding the chain of command. Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon warn that a new deal to an ambitious employee or colleague who aspires to be your competitor is really a loophole waiting to be exploited. This is not the case at all – and all of the standing guard must close ranks to ensure that that does not happen.  

VIRGO – Parents: Quell emotional displays by teenagers & children in your household. Teachers, middle managers: Reward stoic achievers while discouraging, but not disciplining, histrionic episodes. Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon signify that there is already an emotional & cultural divide within the groups that you lead. Cast no overt judgment – instead, lead “the horses” gently to where you want them to go.  

LIBRA – Read Capricorn. Middle managers: Reprimanding incorrigible saboteurs & slackers is not only counterproductive but actually inculcates ill-tempered cynicism. Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon urge you to concentrate your energies instead upon fine-tweaking those employees at your firm who forge a well-oiled machine of formidable discipline. Let the usual suspects earn their inevitable collapse & concomitant pink slips without your interference. Invest your energy in supporting the invincible champions.  

SCORPIO – You work like a machine with highly educated & accomplished professionals in a stressful, high-deadline setting only to waste your hard-earned money on frivolous, dissolute, lazy associates of cheap taste & questionable character? Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon state that you should have high self-esteem, not miserable self-loathing – and the individuals with whom you choose to associate should reflect that sense of worthiness. Get it together! Show more respect for yourself.  

SAGITTARIUS – You cannot divert money which you planned to invest for those members of your family, company or city who have earned it to pay for the sudden “emergencies” of members of your family, company or city who do not now, and never will, have their acts together – because Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon insist that it is not the duty of the responsible to forbear as they wait upon the willful caprice & deliberate stupidity of the foolish.  

CAPRICORN – Read Libra. Do not try to reprimand, redirect or steer employees or colleagues who insist upon undermining the infrastructure by running recklessly amuck. Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon remind you that you may be a boss, but you are an employee, too. You benefit by leading, and, by definition, by associating with, disciplined people who follow the rules. Demonstrate that you achieve – and that you shun absurd, nihilistic troublemakers.  

AQUARIUS – Your professional peer group shakes itself out to shun a rogue element. If you are wondering why, Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon inform you that it is not to your advantage to remain oblivious. Skilled professionals protect themselves & their interests for clear & present reasons – ask questions until you find out what those reasons are.  

PISCES – A boss who neither comprehends reality nor respects personal & professional boundaries overwhelms you with a sprawling & disorganized project within a truncated timeframe which disregards the fact that you work for other people & also live a life outside of the workplace. Chiron, 2003-CO1, Echeclus, Bienor, Pandora, Jupiter, 2001-KF77, Uranus, Pallas Athena, Venus, Saturn, Amycus, Mercury, Neptune & the Full Virgo Moon confirm that to react to this boss will only cause the problem to become even more intolerable. You need to communicate with that boss’s peers – particularly those bosses with whom you have already set simultaneous deadlines – to ask them, “advice.” Get somebody powerful in your corner to redress all pragmatic excess.  

* 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.  

^ 2003-CO1 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on February 1, 2003. The orbit of 2003-CO1 commences just beyond the orbit of Saturn as it crosses over the orbit of Uranus & Neptune.  

< 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.  

> 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 Peirithous'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.  

? Pandora, discovered by G. Searle in 1858 in Albany, New York, receives its name from the first woman on earth, according to Greek mythology. Like Eve, who tempted Adam to eat of the forbidden fruit of the tree in the center of the Garden of Eden, Pandora opened a box which she had been forbidden to open under any circumstances. Pandora bridges punctilious Mercury with innovative Uranus; Pandora represents the unforeseen, troublesome yet oftentimes beneficial consequences which arise from both natural human curiosity & the side effects which occur as humans strive for progress.  

! 2001-KF77 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on May 22, 2001. The orbit of 2001-KF77 traverses from just beyond the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2001-KF77, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

# 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."  

$ 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 Amycus, formerly 2002-GB10, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #2

Mars transits Taurus from February 15 to March 31, 2019. Both individuals & institutions accumulating information, resources & personnel for the execution of grand ambitions & large-scale projects intuitively feel ready to launch. Nothing wrong with that – but everybody may want to wait until the entrance of Uranus into Taurus on March 6, 2019 throws its final monkey-wrench into the works.  

ARIES – You finally reach a financial goal that you set for yourself several years ago. However, Mars in Taurus announces that the benchmark from which you set that goal – the down payment for a new house – has changed. Whether you have more money or less money than you originally thought . . . plan how you will adjust.  

TAURUS – You have crafted a long-term marketing campaign which you base upon a specific personal image. If you hammer this personal image loudly, clearly & repeatedly, Mars in Taurus warns that unexpected circumstances will force the audience whom you address to view that personal image in a light that you did not choose. If, however, you say, “When this happened, I did that. Then when this happened, I did that. And, when this happened, I did that,” you emphasize accountability as you prepare everybody for your “response” to what will happen “next” – whatever it is.  

GEMINI – Accountants: Slick auditors will use one of their favorite tricks to test the veracity of your bookkeeping under the current influence of Mars in Taurus. Be ready.  

CANCER – You have wanted to secure the loyalty of a specific professional or political associate, but you have researched & analyzed them too deeply. Mars in Taurus states that your strategy is far too static. You are dealing with flesh-and-blood human beings – when circumstances change, they will change. Don’t try to hit a moving target – instead, interact naturally with the object of your pursuit.  

LEO – All your professional research & calculations remain valid. You intend to make your move as & when planned. However, Mars in Taurus promises that the environment that existed at the beginning of this astrological transit will be markedly different than the environment at the end. Therefore, before you pull the trigger . . . wait for the other shoe to drop.  

VIRGO – Writers, painters, musicians, critics of literature, art or music: Whether the work “ends the era” or “represents a watershed masterpiece,” Mars in Taurus declares you a winner. Not the winner, but a winner. Who else wins? Your counterpoint, who, unlike you or unlike what you criticize, either “ends an era” or “represents a watershed masterpiece.” Voila!  

LIBRA – Buy extra insurance for your car, apartment, home or life as soon as possible. You may have balanced your budget, and you may even have money in the bank, but Mars in Taurus states that one unexpected catastrophe can wipe out all your savings in one fell sweep. Of course, you can also win millions in the lottery – but that is a problem you should be able to handle. Play “defense.”  

SCORPIO – You have done the thorough character analyses of partners who can be loyal & who can be bitter, seeking revenge, and you have concluded that these partners can, one way or another, go off the deep end. Mars in Taurus now forces you to wait as you do so. Prepare no negotiation terms yet. Wait to see what happens.  

SAGITTARIUS – Regarding your professional workplace: Mars in Taurus warns that you beware the calm before the storm. An outside player will soon crack the shell of the egg to compel growth, egress & new blood. Snap out of your cellphone hypnosis – get ready to make some moves.  

CAPRICORN – Writers, artists, musicians: Certain masterpieces, such as Don DeLillo’s Ratner’s Star, Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and New Order’s "Leave Me Alone" at the climactic ending of Power, Corruption and Lies seem to negate themselves with a flourish at the end. Mars in Taurus notes that all these works of art bring uncomfortable tension to a powerful albeit disruptive close – which may be necessary & brilliant in the work that you are now in the very painful process of completing. Don’t be afraid to destroy what you create as you leave that destroyed creation intact.  

AQUARIUS – You may be forced to move – or, conversely, yet simultaneously, you might be offered ten times the money for what your house is worth. What should you do? Mars in Taurus responds, “It’s easy – do whatever lies within your financial & personal interest.” What do you want from this deal?  

PISCES – Pay all outstanding debts as fast as you can. Then, start collecting all money owed to you. The more that you try to collect, regardless of whether you collect it or not, the more that Mars in Taurus will bring you synergies where money will be coming to you – not from those who owe you money necessarily, but from those who want to do business with you now & in the future.

ARTICLE #3

Cyllarus@ conjuncts* the North Node$ in Cancer from December 29, 2018 to May 19, 2019. People of average height & weight involuntarily show unusually, extremely big & tall people overt respect because atavistic biological cues force them to acknowledge the dominant animal in their environment. In truth, people of average height & weight should show that respect to those accomplished individuals in the public who are, as a result of their knowledge of boxing or the martial arts, lethal human weapons – but such people of average height & weight have no means to identify such lethal human weapons. The law, however, does, and demands that such lethal human weapons register with the state as to prevent them from using their tactics of sport or defense in any one of a number of situations under penalty of incarceration. In all instances, such big people, tall people & lethal human weapons all must behave the same way in public – gently, deftly & quietly, with overt deference to authority, in a suave, accommodating & classy way. They are, contrary to the juvenile rudeness of Charles Barkley, “role models,” because they can cause too much damage, to themselves & to others, if they refuse to behave properly.  

ARIES – You worry about an unusually big family member who does not pursue their self-interest aggressively enough. However, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node reminds you that this family member is well aware that, if they did make hard & fast aggressive moves, they would intimidate everybody. They can’t pursue what they want as aggressively as others because they are simply not “average” – which is a blessing, not a curse, in disguise.  

TAURUS – NBA All-Stars cannot drink alcohol or attend nightclubs in public without risking that some instigator will approach to start trouble, a fight or a lawsuit. In this context, even though you might not be a point guard for Golden State, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node warns you that you are more vulnerable to similar threats than you believe. Shun social spots where low types try to bring their moral superiors down.  

GEMINI – You genuinely believe that you never have enough money – but you may in fact routinely have more cash & a greater net worth than anybody else in the room. Should this change your behavior? Cyllarus conjunct the North Node replies, “Not necessarily.” But are you aware of how others perceive how you handle your money? Veil your financial wealth.  

CANCER – At some point in your life, you earned the reputation as a really sweet guy or charming, proper lady who hangs out with a bunch of crass, selfish, petty jerks. Cyllarus conjunct the North Node now asks, “Why do need such counterpoint?” People will understand the good you have to offer without displaying . . . meaningful comparisons. Nobility per se!  

LEO – There is one very noble & spiritual person in the infrastructure to whom you would like to give more work or business, not only to help them succeed, and not only because they are capable, but because you appreciate their singular wisdom. Not to fret, says Cyllarus conjunct the North Node – as long as there is enough money & work, this individual is happy. This individual is in it for the “intangibles.”  

VIRGO – A local mom who takes a political position on school board meetings or in the local neighborhood is a noble statesperson – but Cyllarus conjunct the North Node emphasizes that she is no politician: She is truly a mom who will do anything in the service of her children.  

LIBRA – A certain female boss or manager who is a dominating force at your professional workplace is not a feminist. Cyllarus conjunct the North Node denotes that this powerful woman does not want others to relate to her based upon a political stance but only as she self-evidently is. This female boss or manager does not intend to edit other people – she intends to lead them.

SCORPIO – Whatever your relationship to industry regulators, your self-evident capability by itself connotes that you are a personage of considerable experience, deep accomplishments & vast influence. However, because you as a rule must oversee so many problems, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node declares that it is na´ve to try to appear perfect. Aspire only to be on the same page with those setting policy for the future.  

SAGITTARIUS – Cyllarus conjunct the North Node posits, “The Criminal Equation.” Vice yields to crime yields to law enforcement yields to seized assets. See no speak no hear no evil. Read the money launderer’s box score in the paper of record. Stay out of trouble.  

CAPRICORN – Notice how not only suave business partners but also classy spouses get respect, as well as what they requested? You have the capacity to demonstrate class, too. Cyllarus conjunct the North Node asks, “Why don’t you?”  

AQUARIUS – You will have several opportunities to enjoy the cuisine of extremely accomplished chefs & bartenders under the current influence of Cyllarus conjunct the North Node. Do not limit yourself.  

PISCES – Children choose whom they love – and if they love you, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node will make you bigger than life. Don’t “try” – children will decide whether they love you or somebody else. Accept if one group does not love you – and accept if another group does.  

@ Cyllarus, a centaur planet that traverses between Uranus & Pluto, was discovered in October 1998 & named in June 2003. Cyllarus, the noble husband of Hylonome, was killed by a random spear from an unknown hand in the battle between the Centaurs & the Lapiths. Upon witnessing the death of Cyllarus, Hylonome committed suicide by jumping on the spear that killed her husband in order to die with him. For further information on how to interpret Cyllarus, formerly 1998-TF35, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below. 

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

ARTICLE #4

Saturn conjunct1 Amycus! in Capricorn sextiles2 Neptune in Pisces from December 29, 2018 to August 9, 2019. Not everybody wants to be a boss. Being a boss sometimes requires more intelligence, but more often requires taking responsibility. Bosses, however, oftentimes assume that everybody wants to be the boss, and therefore congratulate themselves for being, by far, the best of the lot. Therefore, in those instances where the boss talks down to the collected workforce in an official meeting, it is easy to see how an offhand comment by an employee makes the boss extremely embarrassed, as well as how the psychological embarrassment of the boss reflects back upon the collected workforce as hostile wrath, causing, amongst the collective workforce, directionless fear.  

ARIES – Bosses may be smarter (at least we hope) because bosses maintain significant responsibilities which effect everybody. However, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune are concerned that some bosses will treat everybody else as if they are stupid. This propensity will eventually correct itself, as peers of such bosses do not want a jerk to create animosity amongst the populace. Don’t get aggravated – very soon circumstances will paint that arrogant player in that role as a vicious clown worthy of mockery. Risible!  

TAURUS – A loudmouth from the ignorant masses who does not know the laws or the rules declares the laws & the rules irrelevant because, “Nobody obeys them anyway!” Saturn, Amycus & Neptune state that to call this loudmouth stupid only inspires an argument where all involved attempt to qualify that loudmouth’s intelligence. Don’t waste your time. Instead, smirk, while walking away, “Ever been arrested?”  

GEMINI – Your bosses are too busy, individually, jointly, severally & collectively, to consider your net worth – even, as now, when you are doing well. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune therefore advise you, “Don’t broadcast to them.” Stay under the radar.  

CANCER – Spouses & partners who disparage discussion of spirituality praise science & condemn superstition. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune recommend you upbraid their arrogance. Challenge, “Did Einstein know what happened to man’s consciousness after death? Is that a cryptic scientific conundrum?”  

LEO – Several marmot institutional bureaucrats deeply frustrate an ambitious & skilled yet hostile employee by withholding information from them until they get permission to release it. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune impel you to calm this bridge-burner down before they make permanent enemies. Explain, “They are just doing their jobs – although their personalities suit them for their roles.” Try to get a laugh.  

VIRGO – Punish a teenager who gives backtalk to your spouse. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune agree that a weekend indoors away from all their friends is an equitable antidote to overactive self-esteem . . . which disrespects authority.  

LIBRA – Sequester yourself from employees who do not share your heavy professional burdens. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune note that you have too much on your mind to be gracefully social & friendly – so don’t try. However, remove yourself from circulation so that nobody will notice you & accuse you of behaving antisocially.  

SCORPIO – Whether you are a boss, a banker, a lover or a parent, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune unequivocally warn that those to whom you speak will invariably shy away from you . . . if you speak to them so meanly. Have a heart, Scorpio!  

SAGITTARIUS – When buying high-end furniture & medical accessories for your family & home, you must be demanding with merchants & doctors – but Saturn, Amycus & Neptune confirm that you must be tougher & more unyielding with family members. Discern fear from caprice. Assert, “This is for your benefit & it is seriously expensive – get with the program now!”  

CAPRICORN – Saturn, Amycus & Neptune denote that many friends, peers, neighbors, cashiers & merchants to whom you speak & with whom you do business find you haughty, patronizing & insulting. Ask somebody you trust, “How do I appear to strangers?” Soften the tone.  

AQUARIUS – Many people who handle your money, including the accounting department at work, employees at the bank & the federal government, arrogantly make decisions without any explanation. In situations where you can get that explanation, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune recommend that you get one – even if you have to pull teeth.  

PISCES – Some professional superiors & associates do not realize how deeply they insult you. One day, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune predict that you will respond with protest. Wait until such individuals’ behaviors are self-evidently intolerable by objective opinion in a court of law. Neptune the Sea God dispatches a tsunami!

! 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.

2003-CO1*
conjuncts1 the South Node$
in Capricorn
from New Year’s Day to February 21, 2019,
during which
Uranus
in Aries squares2
2003-CO1* conjunct1
the South Node$
in Capricorn
from January 17 to March 6, 2019.

Whether within a corporation, a neighborhood, a city, a state, a province or a country, the body politic regards certain specific individuals, officially & unofficially, as “heroes” or “heroines.” Youth, rebels, cynics & opponents sometimes view both that practice & those heroes or heroines with smug disdain, “These heroes & heroines – what have they done for me lately? In fact, what have they done for me ever?”

For example, in the recent past, Republican candidate for President Donald J. Trump questioned the previously unquestionable heroism of Republican Senator from Arizona John S. McCain when he opined that soldiers whom the enemy does not capture are more heroic than soldiers whom the enemy does capture.

In such a circumstance, it is incumbent upon the hero or heroine to respond to such critics, in their own way, time & purpose, which reminds such critics why that individual is a hero or heroine in the first place.  

ARIES – Expressing disrespect to a highly regarded professional superior or public figures is unseemly & heavy-handed. If you don’t think this boss or famous individual is the greatest thing since sliced bread, Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node remind the Ram that you should only express your skepticism in the most veiled & subtle ways. (Will you do so? Because nobody is betting on it, give the guy playing a long shot a chance to win . . . by demonstrating unexpected class.)  

TAURUS – Citizens who look at cops & find them intimidating & uneducated should watch the television show Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck to learn & to appreciate the fact that some “cops’ cops” emerge from an elite multigenerational pedigree. Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node denote that certain thugs will acknowledge nothing good about cops. Even so, those who witness cops who deal with such thugs will notice that the best cops will thwart such thugs not via brute force but through the implementation & deployment of the criminal’s moral choice to distinguish high from low character.  

GEMINI – A professional associate who brags about their acute financial gains in the stock market attempts to engage you in competitive discourse. Of course, you should not divulge any such information about your financial adviser or broker with this indiscrete yahoo. Conversely, however, Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node advise you to remember what this yahoo said when you speak with that financial advisor or broker – especially if your financial advisors or broker are particularly well-educated or blue-blooded. Allow indiscrete fools & discrete counsel to teach you about “the psychology of the markets.”  

CANCER – A boss who shows disrespect to a long-time, deeply respected professional associate who does, in fact, know whereof they speak, will not feel the sting of rebuke immediately, because all your colleagues suspect that this boss is too callous to understand what they have really done. But learn that boss will – and, as Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node emphasize, not in a comfortable way, “Well, you didn’t exactly express yourself in a way that saved anybody’s face – did you?”  

LEO – While it is a shame that it took a day in court to do so, Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node advise you all to be grateful that you all now see the value of a long-time, modest, classy employee or colleague because that employee or colleague had to deal with the insulting vagaries of unwise legal accusations by trigger-happy, vain, selfish & destructive troublemakers. Resolve never to let this happen again – to anyone!  

VIRGO – The vandalism & criminal mischief of local teenage punks escalates to the point that they insult or damage the property of a highly esteemed teacher or the football coach. Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node agree that enough is enough. Now is the time for law enforcement & the local school administration to take off their kids’ gloves – because those institutions both realize that, unless vested authority acts, vigilantism may indeed commence.  

LIBRA – Your genius business partner smugly dismisses the intelligence & influence of a long-standing, highly respected local public figure because their mediocre integrity & outright tackiness cannot recognize anybody so esteemed & worthy. Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node therefore enjoin you to push your jerkface friend’s shoulder – hard, “We’re not talking about your own low-rent pedigree here – this individual merits not only your respect but in fact your obedience. (That word is in the dictionary – ask me if you need the right spelling.)”  

SCORPIO – If you issue instructions to the local punk genius employee, they will disobey you, then sue you. However, if you have hired that proxy specifically to keep this local punk genius employee in line, then Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node guarantee that this local punk genius employee will realize that they must obey or quit – because they are most definitely going to lose any lawsuit that they bring against this truly superior player.  

SAGITTARIUS – No matter how much money you make or how straight-laced or authority-intensive your job may be, Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node declare that there is always room in your personality to express outrageous creativity. However, remember: Eccentric is charming – vulgar is dishonorable. Don’t create any work of art that other people would judge to be beneath your character.  

CAPRICORN – Whether a son or male nephew rebels against you or a local male teenager mocks or chastises you harshly while you speak in public as a politician, business leader or teacher, Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node remind you that, to maintain your status as an “elder statesman,” it would be beneath you to respond in kind.  

AQUARIUS – A local acquaintance whom you had previously regarded as politically neutral (and, frankly, non-descript & dull) expresses pointed language which alerts you to the fact that not only they, but, in fact, deeply respected authority figures are casting indirect reproach at you. Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node guarantee that you will know exactly why these prominent individuals are finding fault with you. Don’t be too quick to react – because, for one reason, your reaction will be duly noted & recorded while having zero impact on anybody. Reflect upon why this type of exchange is really happening.  

PISCES – If you need a job because you need money, don’t contact truly prestigious professional connections. Uranus, 2003-CO1 & the South Node remind you that truly prestigious professional connections are not interested in solving your, or anybody else’s, survival-related financial problems. If, however, you are financially secure & want somebody to consider your novel, artwork or invention – then this truly prestigious professional connections may be interested in introducing a friend of theirs to review some of your truly unique work..

* 2003-CO1 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on February 1, 2003. The orbit of 2003-CO1 commences just beyond the orbit of Saturn as it crosses over the orbit of Uranus & Neptune.

$ 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.

ARTICLE #6

Jupiter transits Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019. Hordes of lapsed Catholics, including generations of those who spent decades indulging in sex, drugs, high finance, high technology & rock’n’roll, will begin to feel the need to reconcile themselves with the Catholicism in which they were raised, including the need to hear the Mass, with the Liturgy of the Word followed by the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Such need arises not as a result of any intellectual or philosophical reconciliation with the Catholic faith, because many such individuals will not have feel any such reconciliation whatsoever. Such need transcends mere nostalgia to experience what no longer exists, whether book stores, record stores, block parties or summer camps sponsored by a Catholic Church honoring its commitment both to teaching service to its own teenagers & to providing service to the local indigent. These lapsed Catholics experience the afterimage of the inculcation of their own indoctrination, often in the form of codified, homogenized prayer – for, as Dion Fortune asserts in The Mystical Qabbalah, “These monks frequently bring to the working of the Mass a very high degree of magical power, as any psychic can testify. It is the ensouling of an astral form with spiritual force which is the real act of Transubstantiation. It is in the knowledge of these things, and in the possession of organized bodies of men and women trained in their use in the encloistered Orders, that the strength of the One Catholic and Apostolic Church lies.”  

ARIES – Jupiter in Sagittarius warns that two useless phenomena will try to stop you: Excuses & guilt. To combat excuses: Consider, “Whether you say you can or you can’t, you are correct.” Decide that you are capable. To combat guilt: You were allowed to make mistakes yesterday because you are allowed to do great things tomorrow.  

TAURUS – Psychic, spiritual, religious & New Age excursions into consciousness, extensive travel to foreign lands or reading deep, pure philosophy alienate lesser minds. Selling property to immigrant transplants alienates poorer natives. Both provide limitless opportunities under the current influence of Jupiter in Sagittarius – but you must be able to stand your ground against hostile forces.  

GEMINI – A foreign spouse or international business partner can bring you fabulous luck. However, to capitalize on such luck, Jupiter in Sagittarius demands that you communicate to stick-in-the-mud bosses exactly what is going on . . . when they really need to know.  

CANCER – Working with foreign clients or immigrant employees & colleagues can empower you with skills that many in your professional cohort will lack. However, Jupiter in Sagittarius declares that the flip side of wielding such knowledge involves repeated instances of “foot-in-mouth” disease. Accept that embarrassment is a sign that your heart is in the right place.  

LEO – Salespeople: Jupiter in Sagittarius flatly denotes that your ability to drum up business – which is indeed considerable – will do you & your company no good unless you have allies in y our company’s infrastructure who will expedite the delivery of goods & services that you sell with but a minute’s notice.  

VIRGO – Your family can now enjoy unprecedented happiness & contentment – but Jupiter in Sagittarius demands that you must make your spouse, with all their alienating idiosyncrasies & outside associates, a part of that family. Pipe dream: Can you afford a brand new house where you can all start a brand new chapter together?  

LIBRA – You have an inspirational message to deliver – but that message is lost on work colleagues & employees. Jupiter in Sagittarius insists that you know your audience. Preach to those who have never heard anything like what you now have to say.  

SCORPIO – You’ve paid off all your huge loans & outstanding debt. Now, Jupiter in Sagittarius congratulates you as all the money now flows to you. Put it in the bank – and disregard the whining lovers & children who only want you to dissipate your hard-earned money on their caprice & whimsy. Consolidate.  

SAGITTARIUS – Your self-development & caring for your loved ones are not mutually exclusive propositions, but rather “master-slave.” That is, Jupiter in Sagittarius states that you can only help loved ones if you take care of yourself & your needs first – and that includes your need to create whatever bona-fide creative masterpiece that you happen to envision.  

CAPRICORN – Protect yourself from “homeowners” & “business people” who failed arithmetic in third grade. Jupiter in Sagittarius states that you will benefit when less capable & less disciplined people fail – as long as they don’t drag you down with them.  

AQUARIUS – Colleagues don’t want to hear your philosophical ideas – they want to know what you know about petty ongoing workplace “developments.” Jupiter in Sagittarius indicates that the real question is amongst groups of strangers who meet to hear what people like you have to say. In such venues . . . you are the star of the show!  

PISCES – Current & new bosses will make extra demands upon you because they know that you can handle the job. Jupiter in Sagittarius instructs you to do the work & to take the overtime, raises & promotions – but one caveat: Absolutely refuse to work when you are sick.

ARTICLE #7

Saturn conjuncts@ Amycus* in Capricorn from January 9 to December 30, 2019. A proletariat who aggressively & publicly challenges a political leader, corporate executive, business owner or boss is an insect. A political leader, corporate executive, business owner or boss who harshly & viciously insults, punishes or incarcerates a proletariat with outright personal invective is a sadist. That proletariat, truly an insect, is a fool, worthy of the least humane form of elimination allowed by a civilized society. That boss, a sadist & a sociopath, is outright dangerous, and requires careful monitoring not only by law enforcement, but by anybody who wants to protect their job, reputation, body & life.  

ARIES – Only Scorpios can be meaner than Aries. However, Saturn conjunct Amycus signifies that bosses are now acting really mean – most of the time, to those who can’t be mean back to them. Of course, what goes around comes around – but, in this instance, you are going to have to wait. Until the time comes . . . suck it up.  

TAURUS – Cops gladly arrest perpetrators who are clearly guilty. Even then, many people want to know, “Are cops treating those perpetrators within the boundaries of the law?” Don’t jump to conclusions – Saturn conjunct Amycus declares that sometimes cops have good reason to treat perpetrators harshly. Stay out of harm’s way – unless you wish to submit to punishment yourself.  

GEMINI – If you walk around the office with a scowl on your face five minutes after CNBC, Fox Business & Google News announce that the stock market lost 1200 points, everybody who sees you will add two & two together. Saturn conjunct Amycus therefore advises that those Twins with stock market portfolios never to look at stock market results when they must continue to work with other human beings.  

CANCER – Enlightened, erudite spouse & partners will challenge you with recondite, esoteric knowledge. Unenlightened spouse & partners will insult your intelligence harshly. In either instance, Saturn conjunct Amycus states that it is not a question of what you earned or not: You are worthy of respect.  

LEO – Saturn conjunct Amycus encourages you to tell an ambitious & skilled yet hostile employee – if you like them – that they will make more enemies than friends if they walk around the workplace with the attitude that they are smarter than everybody else.  

VIRGO – Saturn conjunct Amycus teaches teenagers sarcasm. Nip this trend in the bud fast, “None of your lip, youngster!”  

LIBRA – Heavy familial & professional burdens make you psychologically defensive & sarcastic. For that reason, Saturn conjunct Amycus recommends that you do not make yourself too available. Keep your office door closed – as a rule.  

SCORPIO – Read Aries. Yes, Scorpio, when competing for the title, is the king & queen of mean. Saturn conjunct Amycus therefore instructs you, “Unless you really want to be mean . . . be nice. Be very nice.” Because, if you want to be mean . . . nobody will be able to stop you.  

SAGITTARIUS – Spending money on mediocre products & services of any type is an insult to the elevated skills & hard work with which you earned it. Saturn conjunct Amycus demands that you, the Archer, treat spending money as an act of absolutely astounding genius – because you, more than anybody else, can.  

CAPRICORN – Saturn conjunct Amycus, in Saturn’s fall in your 1st house of self & identity, makes you seem not only severe, but, in fact, aggressively hostile. This works well if you are a prosecutor or in law enforcement – but what if you sell ice cream to kids? “Mommy, mommy, that man who sells ice cream is so, so mean!” If you are not trying to arrest or to convict anybody . . . for God’s sake, try to smile!  

AQUARIUS – It is very easy for other people at your place of employment to treat you rudely if you can only deal with them by telephone – and they never see your face. Saturn conjunct Amycus suggests that, one day in the future, you will meet some such individuals in person who had preferred to treat you rudely with the excuse that you were just one other person whom they did not know. Well, let them accrue culpability – as for yourself, remain above the fray with charm & limitless grace.  

PISCES – With certain impeccably sharp-edged professional associates, there is no need for questions because they have all the answers! Well, Saturn conjunct Amycus reply, “Well, excuse me!” Groucho Marx once said that he would never join a club that would have him as a member – but even Groucho would have nothing to worry about here. “I’m sorry, I was just looking for the bathroom – you just get back to your little conversation . . .” Wow!

* 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.

ARTICLE #8

Chiron^, which turns to Direct Motion1 on December 10, 2018, completes its transit of Pisces on February 18, 2018, during which Chiron^ in Pisces sextiles2 Bienor< in Taurus from December 10, 2018 to February 18, 2018, and during which Chiron^ in Pisces sextiles2 Bienor< conjunct3 Echeclus> in Taurus from December 27, 2018 to February 18, 2018. Prove to authority figures, official sales reps & those who dispense resources that you are worthy of trust. Too many people recently fleeced vulnerable & trusting bosses as the sudden emergence of new loopholes led to embarrassing losses. Demonstrate that you surmise, if not exactly know, what happened – and go that extra step to prove that your credibility & character are above question & beyond reproach.  

ARIES –Bureaucrats treat the public with either unconditional trust or unconditional mistrust depending upon the times. Because such bureaucrats currently trust nobody, Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus advise you simply to have your papers in order, to tell the truth about whatever you are asked & to expect no favors. Earn yourself a modicum of respect.  

TAURUS – Everybody has a complaint about current political & economic conditions. However, because a lot of people, including  yourself, have complaints about other people, Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus advise you not to discuss what you dislike with anybody at all, lest you complain about somebody that the person to whom you are complaining knows.  

GEMINI – Accountants: Simply prepare to demonstrate to bosses & clients that your calculations & conclusions are correct. Bosses must make popular & unpopular decisions based upon what facts you present – but, ultimately, Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus declare that you can only present facts. Communicate with neutrality.  

CANCER – Christianity espouses financial generosity. However, Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus now notice instances where supplicants & beggars are demanding. This is the cart leading the horse. Exercise a firm hand before you choose to open your wallet – or your heart.  

LEO – Bosses indulge anger & even rage as you comply with various interfaces & infrastructures to get payment for your goods & services. Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus realize that you well know the need to use the human touch to pull off the impersonal mask of the bureaucrat – but you also must use the human touch to calm down bosses who demand their money. Be more even-handed with your own emotions.  

VIRGO – Whether they must speak to academics, teachers, parole officers or psychiatrists, Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus demand that you impel your spouse to visit authority figures on behalf of your children & family to find out what you may not want to hear. Go with them – but do not go by yourself. Let your spouse take the lead.  

LIBRA – Employees take an unusual interest in how well your company is doing because they are worried about their own finances. Moreover, Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus warn that such employees will not take kindly at all to your plight if your company has endured an embezzler in your midst. These public relations are very difficult – watch what you say.

SCORPIO – Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus denote that hostile neighbors will take umbrage, and may call the police, if you & yours celebrate too excessively . . . while others in your neighborhood suffer.  

SAGITTARIUS – Distance yourself from colleagues’ & employees’ complaints. Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus state that such complaints will only add aggravation to your much deeper, more personal pain. In one ear & out the other – water off a duck’s ass!  

CAPRICORN – Do you want to communicate complaints to official agents? Do you want to make an artistic statement? Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus will distinguish between a social worker & an artist. Attempt no awkward overlapping hybrids.  

AQUARIUS – If the various members of your workplace clique agree about that political & economic obstacles cause problems in your local area, then Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus suggest that you all meet informally & codify them for public presentation. However, make sure you are on the same page – on the same pieces of paper.  

PISCES – You have asked that they pay you the money, you have repeated the request that you asked for the money & you followed up with a formal letter codifying your requests. Chiron, Bienor & Echeclus confirm that all know where you stand. Prepare to push a little harder once not everybody proves forthcoming.

^ 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.

< 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 Peirithous'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. 

> 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.

ARTICLE #9

Uranus, which turns to Direct Motion* on January 7, completes its transit of Aries on March 6, 2019. Straightforward initiatives run headfirst into adamant opposition. Those launching such initiatives will be unable to see them through to completion – new dilemmas will shape new priorities with new deadlines. Fortunately, bosses both like these initiatives & dislike the adamant opposition. Does this mean that the eventual fulfillment of all such initiatives? Possibly – but there will be drama. Know when to cut your losses – and when to pass the ball.  

ARIES – The boxing referee steps into the ring, pulls down the microphone & announces, “The boxing match has been cancelled because of inclement weather.” That is preposterous – two guys can beat each other silly in a hurricane! What’s going on? Well, Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries isn’t saying. Bottom line: Stop fighting your opponent. Let somebody else fight your battle for you. Turn your attention to your next clear upcoming priority . . . which will be announced to you shortly.  

TAURUS – All these masked street criminals posing as political radicals finally get arrested. Thank God! But now come the liars, lying to the police & the courts about those persecuted political radicals, on all newspaper websites amalgamated on Google News! What is the world going to do? For one thing, Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries states that the world is busy with important business – and orders you to stop watching such tabloid pornography. If you want entertainment, buy a dystopian graphic novel – but don’t waste your time on this nonsense!  

GEMINI – For many years, you espoused an aggressive geopolitical, militarist worldview. Recently, many world leaders rose to the surface actually capable of, and inclined to carry out, such aggression. Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries therefore advises you to put this worldview to bed, officially, permanently – ideally, in writing. Either way, realize that a paradigm shift is necessary, for Chiron’s entrance into Aries, where the indulgence of aggression causes insurmountable problems.  

CANCER – Your professional status may have changed dozens of times over the past seven years – but you still seem to have the same job! Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries advises you to review those past seven years to determine how you survived – than, apply those survival skills you mastered so that you transform them into tools for making forward progress.  

LEO – Businesspeople: You strived over the past seven years to expand your professional base of operations, and, as a result, you now know how to do business in another city, state, province or country. Great – congratulations! Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries now challenges you to accomplish a more basic task: To make a profit wherever you do business. You must make more than you spend – even in Mexican pesos!  

VIRGO – Read Capricorn. For several months, local property vandalism & street crime by teenagers declined as the result of changing socioeconomic & political conditions. Now, as these social maladies escalate under the current influence of Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries, you must act decisively to protect your property interests & your family without making yourself a prominent public figure, on the street or in the media, as a result. Do not make yourself a target. Work officially with – not unofficially as – the local police.  

LIBRA – Genius partners with brilliant ideas often fail because their awful people skills prevent them from cultivating the relationships necessary to follow through. In this context, unlike your genius partners, Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries reminds you that you are a genius at being a partner. You can make those ideas succeed if you get the genius partner out of the way. Well, write up a contract, get the signatures – make it happen!  

SCORPIO – Genius employees have outlived their usefulness. However, Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries reminds you that you don’t want genius employees to confront you before you fire them. Hire a sophisticated, well-educated middle manager who will attempt to discipline recalcitrant genius employees – which recalcitrant genius employees will resist. Let the middle manager confirm that it is time to let such employees go –  

SAGITTARIUS – Writers, artists: Complete a full first or second draft of outstanding large-scale projects. You can revise later – but Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries, which marks an ending, impels you to mark your own endings as well. Prepare for new beginnings with Chiron in Aries. Sell what is already completed to industry professionals.  

CAPRICORN – Read Virgo. After several months of a peaceful home environment, Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries now escalates tensions amongst family members. Part of the issue lies in the fact that bosses now put significant pressure upon you professionally. Even so, neutralize all confrontations – and quell all rage. Say nothing which will cause everybody in the household permanent pain.  

AQUARIUS – Astrologically savvy Waterbearers may be inclined to use the current influence of Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries, the end of Uranus’s seven or so year transit of Aries, to say whatever you damn well please. Don’t – rash words will have negative consequences, endured immediately during Chiron’s transit in Aries until 2027. You might also get sued – or even arrested. Silence – not bluster – is golden!  

PISCES – Pay all outstanding debts. If possible, settle all litigation with all contentious creditors & partners, including spouse – and sell all real property which has outlived its original purpose. Direct Motion Uranus in late Aries states that you do not want to encumber yourself with any financial obligations whatsoever. If you don’t have a financial clean slate, you will be unable to form brand new financial goals. New broom – clean sweep! .

The North Node$ transits Cancer from November 16, 2018 to June 4, 2020. Currency trader Eric Packer, the protagonist of Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis, considers himself the smartest man in the room – any room. Packer became a billionaire executing the exact same risky transactions as he did through the course of DeLillo’s novel, during which he loses hundreds of millions of dollars in one day betting that the Japanese Yen would plummet in value – by demonstrating ironclad conviction in dangerously leveraged counterintuitive gambles. Such strategic vigor colors Packer’s basic personality. When Packer visits one of his many paramours, Didi Fancher, Didi informs him of the upcoming availability of a prime period Mark Rothko painting, “It will remind you that you’re alive.” Didi, instead of feeling fulfilled by the appropriate concomitant gratitude that she expects Packer to provide, becomes horrified when Packer asserts that he wants to buy the fourteen paintings within, and, the Rothko Chapel of Houston, Texas, “In my apartment. There’s sufficient space. I’ll make more space.” Packer’s flippancy towards the perpetually despondent & neurotic Rothko, which Rothko himself would undoubtedly revile, illustrates how Packer’s narcissistic acquisitions inject him with an adrenaline rush based upon his adolescent penchant for destruction.  It falls under the same paradigm of Chrimatistikˇs, the Greek word for “moneymaking,” as per his Chief of Theory, Vija Kinski. “You paid the money for the number itself,” Kinski interprets. “This is what you bought. And it’s worth it. The number justifies itself.”

ARIES – We’ve heard it all before, “The bigger they come, the harder they fall.” But that is just the sound of a loud “thud.” The real questions that the North Node in Cancer asks, “When money is everything and one loses it all – loses everything – what, exactly, if anything, truly matters?”  

TAURUS – Booze! So rivals can brag about their “victories” to your face. Cuisine! So you & your (date) (lover) (spouse) (paramour) may define “the rules of engagement.” The North Node in Cancer comments, “How careless elitists are with the Sword of Damocles.” Do any of these cutthroats buy a kid an ice-cream cone just to see the kid smile?  

GEMINI – Divest from enough investments in stocks, bonds, artwork & excess property to accumulate enough cash on hand to make you feel comfortable amidst volatility in all types of markets. The North Node in Cancer encourages you to put yourself in a position where you can lose absolutely everything in which you have invested with the attitude of dispassionate abstraction because you have real currency on hand to survive the long term.  

CANCER – A spouse or partner who demands control has already lost control. The North Node in Cancer instructs you to refuse to engage once such individuals cross that very clear threshold.  

LEO – The North Node in Cancer denotes that employees & colleagues who skip steps, and who refuse to complete required logs, are manifestly untrustworthy. If it is not transparent, it is most likely dishonest. Raise the objections despite the uproar against you.  

VIRGO – Parents: Discipline male teenagers strictly – particularly if they participate in school sports. The North Node in Cancer signifies that many such male teenagers will behave more recklessly, and will get themselves involved in punitively spectacular episodes, more than usual. Other parents – especially mothers – will be truly irate. Assert, “Only role models graduate without a police record – get it, son?”  

LIBRA – Your rage towards local politicians or corrupt business leaders may not be misplaced but is nevertheless futile. The North Node in Cancer reminds the justice-minded Libran that sometimes generations must pass before a full reward or punishment can be given. Pay more attention to those powerful people who take distinct care of the obedient masses who constitute “the salt of the earth.”  

SCORPIO – How you say what you say can get you in legal trouble. Instructions, directions, jokes, news items, critiques – the North Node in Cancer warns that censors will key on you if they have reason to correct you even once. Speak so formally & drily that you put people to sleep.  

SAGITTARIUS – Sequester your liquid income as if you plan to buy property. If you don’t, the North Node in Cancer will ask you, “How do you want to eliminate all your discretionary income – through budgeting for a new home, via your spouse or via legal judgment by the police?”  

CAPRICORN – The North Node in Cancer warns the Goat not to alienate spouse or business partner. You are entitled to stupid mistakes – but you are not entitled to be a jerk. Be good to those loved ones upon whom you must rely.  

AQUARIUS – You get revenge against hidden enemies in the bureaucracy – but only, as the North Node in Cancer now qualifies, if you do not fight back. Allow allies to fight your battles for you.  

PISCES – Adults behave badly, even though they know better, because they are wicked. The North Node in Cancer conversely emphasizes that children who do not know any better are full of love – and innocence. Shield your children from such wicked influences. Teach your children well!

@ 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.
