Business interests in the U.S.A. continue to want the macroeconomy & the social order to return, not only to what they were before Donald Trump, and not only to what they were before Barack Obama, and not only to what they were before George W. Bush, but, in fact, to what they were during Bill Clinton – without Bill Clinton, “He should have stuck with Gennifer Flowers.

“Look! This is what we need to do,” this duly self-appointed representative of the business class continues. “Leave all the personal & company computer files alone – that’s nobody’s business & we can keep it all in one of the clouds. But the Internet? Leave all the servers, the domain names & protocols in place – but wipe it clean! Purge all content. Including (and especially including) Facebook & Instagram. The blue screen of the electronic apocalypse!

“And then!” this duly self-appointed representative of the business class concludes. “Before anybody dares put anything back online – regulate it.”  

ARIES – To you, a lot of your bosses & colleagues trying to restore the status quo of the western world put their heads in the sand as influxes of rich, accomplished young Asians take over prime real estate in any number of American & Canadian cities. You see, early on, that the relationship between current bosses & colleagues with those well-heeled foreign newcomer Asian immigrants will be hostile & adversarial – but Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon remind you that for you to take sides can, potentially, down the line, outright destroy you. You must act as if your interests lie with neither side – or with both sides. Refuse to acknowledge that a hardline sentiment even exists.  

TAURUS – Floods of local cops need not read the local business journal to realize that it is their job to protect wealthy new foreign & domestic immigration as local, state, provincial & federal governments try to transition back to the status quo of the most recent world order. However, what you don’t realize, and what such cops, as well as Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon, will remind you, is that they are aware of you, too. You don’t have to be the anchorman or anchorwoman of the local news to be an important personage amongst the people. You are a man or woman of our times – and even those local protectors of a peaceful civil order love you for it.  

GEMINI – New philosophical, political & economic paradigms hide behind darkened clouds as the incorrigibly impatient business class bulls rely upon rote formulae to turn a profit. Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon declare that now is certainly not the time to try to teach a monkey to tap dance. The newly reactionary have made up their minds – let them go on their way. Pay closer attention to that dim light getting ever brighter on the horizon.  

CANCER – Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon announce that the future must wait because current business partners and, in fact, the entire business class, will not yet recognize it. That’s okay – use the current delay to catch up to, and to upgrade your methods of collecting, research in foreign publications in different languages.  

LEO – You see the blind spots of colleagues & employees if they ask you to enlighten them – to a degree. Make them then do their own research. Otherwise, Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon know that you’ve done your homework about current scientific, technological & geopolitical trends. Affiliate with like minds. Avoid the pile of bodies on the front of the offensive line like a Hall of Fame middle linebacker.  

VIRGO – Parents of high school & college students: Tell athletically inclined children, “Good time to be a computer or science nerd – bad time to be an athlete.” Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon advise you to induce them, however you may, to ask you why. There is so much competition out there to throw a football – not nearly enough to build a robot. (As long as your home is in the U.S.A. and not China, India – or even Mexico.)  

LIBRA – Droves of male local business leaders inherently dislike your visionary politics. Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon signify that the time to proselytize them to convert such leaders to your point of view has not yet come – extremely broad geopolitical & macroeconomic conditions have not yet fully matured. In the meantime, try not to aggravate stubborn people with fixed financial worldviews who do not yet perceive sweeping change.  

SCORPIO – You & many other locals pine for yesteryear as the only sign of societal change is a big hole in the ground. Making you more annoyed, Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon make you realize that none of these changes represented by this big hole in the ground are designed to serve you & yours. However, there is no reason to develop a hostile xenophobia about it. There will be some way to do business with those who benefit. Think laterally.  

SAGITTARIUS – Unlike other liberals, you immediately see the economic potential driven by massive immigration. Of course, there is a language barrier – in the end, a small problem. Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon therefore denote that your work is cut out for you. Forge a plan. Take a class in Mandarin, Arabic, Russian, Portuguese or Spanish. Monitor trends.  

CAPRICORN – Despite the “current wisdom,” you & a lot of your colleagues see a burgeoning trend in technology, science & aviation – but none of you are willing to admit it because any profitable developments are way too premature. However, instead of discussing this under-the-radar topic upon which all of you secretly agree, Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon advise all of you to discuss upcoming widespread immigration facilitated by higher education. Acknowledge the sleeping giant before he rudely awakes.  

AQUARIUS – You are now valued as the high keeper of the ultimate secret. Put on the baseball cap of your favorite sports rival, light a cigar, put on your mirrored sunglasses, select an hors d'oeuvre and order a strong drink. Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon advise you to glow in the same twilight in which the Las Vegan conspirators realized that they had become outlaws at the end of Stephen Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven. Revel in your status as the savant of the illuminati!  

PISCES – Unlike many other people in the country & the world who are waiting for the next big thing to get big enough so that they can then bet their casino chips, you will actually be working on that next “big thing.” Luckily, your job is straightforward enough – but Jupiter, Saturn, 2003-CO1, Chiron, Varuna, Urania, 1996-GQ21, 1999-KR16, Mercury, Uranus, Albion, 1996-TR66, Deucalion, 1999-OX3, 2001-BL41, the Sun & the New Capricorn Moon now make you see agendas everywhere. How to escape from this mess & to get in touch with it just enough to protect & to liberate you from it? Read some recondite science fiction – or watch spooky & futuristic TV shows like The Twilight Zone or Max Headroom.  

$ 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.  

(a) 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.  

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

For penetrating, cutting-edge analysis on the effects of
the TNO Varuna,
read Denis Kutalyov’s article,
“Varuna: Good or Bad
(Sketches for the Interpretation of a New Planet)”
at
http://astrologic.ru/english/Varuna.htm

^ Urania, which was discovered in London by J.R. Hind in 1854, is the Greek muse of astronomy & astrology. Those who honor Urania use the clarity & pure systematic thought of logic & math to penetrate the veiled truth.  

< 1996-GQ21 is an unnamed scattered-disk object (SDO) transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on April 12, 1996. SDOs are far more remote in space than even Varuna or Pluto, the outermost planets in our current solar system; 1996-GQ21, an SDO, is also a TNO because, at perihelion, it hovers around the orbit of Neptune.  

> 1999-KR16 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on May 16, 1999.  

<< 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.   # Deucalion is a transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on April 18, 1999. Deucalion, the son of Prometheus & Clymene, is the Greek counterpart of Noah, as Zeus saved Deucalion & his wife Pyrrha, who rode upon an ark, from a flood that devastated mankind.  

@ 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.  

* 2001-BL41 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on January 19, 2001. The orbit of 2001-BL41 traverses between the orbits of Jupiter & out past Saturn. For information on how to interpret 2001-BL41, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

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.

ARTICLE #3

Neptune in Pisces squares* the North Node$ in Gemini from November 18, 2020 to February 12, 2021. Back in the day when Burger King advertised that it proudly accommodated “special orders” (“Hold the pickle, hold the lettuce”), the consumer public upheld such accommodation as a strict virtue to atone for the insulting treatment towards all types of individuals that standardization facilitated, as best illustrated by what Jack Nicholson as Bobby Dupea endured during Five Easy Pieces, “Hold the chicken between your knees.” In the era of coronavirus, however, there are no “options” – there are only mandates. The person before you in line goes, you go, the person behind you in line goes – to do & to get the same thing.  

ARIES – Neptune square the North Node connotes strongly that idiosyncrasies are not charming. There is no time to get to know one another. Do your duty. Move on.  

TAURUS – Merchants: As the introduction above suggests, certain clients demand special treatment because they feel they are “special.” On a sunny day under a blue sky, maybe – but Neptune square the North Node presents you with a ton of clients & customers who claim no special status, but who nevertheless demand quality for what they buy with their money. This isn’t “social work” – this is still capitalism!  

GEMINI – You have work to execute for a lot of bosses. If they have special instructions for you, Neptune square the North Node advises you to tell them to write it down. Explain, “The more complicated you make your job, the more than you can ensure that I will do your job last.” Be frank so that, if this boss pushes back, you will take recourse.  

CANCER – If you are professionally obligated to do the work of ten people, then Neptune square the North Node guarantees that you will endure blame. If you endure blame repeatedly as you continue along your job without getting fired . . . your employer is enslaving you. Rock the boat.  

LEO – Explain to your workplace’s local goldbrick, “My client is not willing to wait based upon your discretion.” Neptune square the North Node states that you must put your company’s best foot forward with such demanding negotiators. Deliberately threaten underperforming employees, with confidence, “If I lose this client based upon their dissatisfaction with this transaction, I will fire you for cause.”  

VIRGO – Bosses observe your rivals dawdling in clouds. Therefore, Neptune square the North Node promises that if you execute with alacrity, bosses will take their complaints elsewhere.  

LIBRA – Managers: Don’t communicate an objective workplace standard by punishing underachievers. Instead, Neptune square the North Node advises that you announce, “We now have an accelerated objective workplace standard which we will enforce by punishing underachievers.” Issue fair warning.  

SCORPIO – Business partners who assert that you are too generous with lackeys & groupies are correct. Neptune square the North Node denotes that sycophants contribute nothing to your business. Clean house.  

SAGITTARIUS – Are you sure that your spouse does not feel inconvenienced by the amount of time you spend servicing elderly or sickly family members? Neptune square the North Node signifies that your spouse may not know that they feel this way themselves. Broach the subject.  

CAPRICORN – Merchants, managers: Neptune square the North Node demands that you disallow the friends or family of employees to hang out while working. This is a professional workplace – not a family kitchen.  

AQUARIUS – Bands: It is premature to record a CD. Playwrights & producers: It is premature to videotape a production. Neptune square the North Node declares that it is not about the money . . . yet. Develop what you are really doing.  

PISCES – Neptune square the North Node denotes that a family member needs your focused attention. Stop zoning out. Stop projecting optimism upon one who requires a realistic & objective appraisal.   

$ 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 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).

ARTICLE #4

Jupiter in Aquarius sextiles@ Chiron* in Aries from December 28, 2020 to January 16, 2021. Paul Graves, high-level deputy focused upon the Farm Economy in the White House Department of Agriculture during the New Deal, in his first trip to the farms of the United States at the beginning of The Grand Design, the third climactic novel of John Dos Passos’ District of Columbia (DC) trilogy, holds tightly to his ideals – to, literally, his blueprint: The foursquare farmhouse with two bedrooms, bathroom, living room, kitchen, with all contemporary modern appliances. A paved road with power line and telephone. A rural center with a schoolhouse, a small commercial strip & church. The four-lane highway to the rest of the economy and civilization. Then, in his last trip to yet another group of American farms, after arm-wrestling farmer John Hick in a male bonding ritual after the two midwife the birth of a calf, Graves confesses to his assistant, Georgia Washburn from Ann Arbor, Michigan, “There are times when I just feel like a phony, a miserable chair-warmer, when it seems absolutely impossible to arrange all these divergent human relations in any kind of way that makes any sense.”  

ARIES – Read Leo. Political initiatives where people or companies get money which provide no discernible product or service may be popular in the beginning, but most people, in the end, will notice the wasted money. Indeed, Jupiter sextile Chiron may try to persuade you that such policies, in the end, are harmless – until you realize that the government can no longer afford to provide something that you really need. See through the opaque boondoggle.

TAURUS – TV news crews which record public arrests now employ an on-screen journalist asking bald & blunt questions. Jupiter sextile Chiron is not interested in the answers to such questions but is only outright obsessed with the expressions of the players’ faces caught on camera.  

GEMINI – You gain a lot of new political allies with your written or spoken views about expanding or abolishing certain types of business ownership, or about issuing student loan money for those willing to join a municipal police force ROTC – but Jupiter sextile Chiron warns that any of such allies will be hardcore extremists which will alienate you from the mainstream. Distinguish between what you write & what you say.  

CANCER – Individuals with unusual or ugly faces can be as articulate & succinct as everybody else making a political statement on television. However, Jupiter sextile Chiron distinguishes, “These individuals may be purist experts, but they can never be mainstream popularizers.”  

LEO – Read Aries. Jupiter sextile Chiron denotes that the drawbacks to launching, immediately, popular political initiatives will be glaringly apparent from the onset – and impossible to reverse. Hold off.  

VIRGO – A lot of new employees recently hired inappropriately fight for professional control of jointly held resources. This battle will continue for several months, but, for now, Jupiter sextile Chiron advises you to sit at your desk, concentrate upon your work & mind your own business.  

LIBRA – Many political allies love & applaud your genius business partner – which Jupiter sextile Chiron states is the last thing you or your genius business partner need. Luckily, this phase does not last too long, so let genius business partners enjoy their unconditional adulation. Just make sure that they don’t do too much damage!  

SCORPIO – Spend a little bit of time getting to know recently hired, well-mannered, intelligent male employees who recently replaced notorious troublemaking geniuses. Jupiter sextile Chiron recommends that you discover more about their character. Determine if you trust them enough to give them a genuinely responsible assignment.  

SAGITTARIUS – Writers, politicians: Jupiter sextile Chiron urges you to write a short story or a short play about all the things you cannot say as a performer – as if you were writing a play about the permanent downfall of Seinfeld’s Michael Roberts’ professional career. Draft lessons that you must learn yourself – before it is too late.  

CAPRICORN – Parents, especially fathers: Do not give a troubled family member, especially sons, cash. Instead, Jupiter sextile Chiron advises that you take them out to dinner. Find out what the issue is – it will take some time & attention to solve.  

AQUARIUS – An exquisite outburst of anger in front of a crowd or on television under the current influence of Jupiter sextile Chiron will earn you applause & widespread televised & Internet popularity immediately – and a sucker punch in the face later in 2021. It is not worth it! Shun such memorable notoriety.  

PISCES – Oh, so your cool post on Facebook or Instagram earned you 117 likes! Jupiter sextile Chiron congratulates you as they ask, “How much is that worth?”  

* 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.

@ A Sextile is a harmonious yet primarily mental & social aspect between either Fire & Air signs (Fire being Aries, Leo, Sagittarius;  & Air being Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) or Earth & Water signs (Earth being Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn; & Water being Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces).

ARTICLE #5

Mars transits Taurus from January 6 to March 3, 2021. Even high technology stocks are not immune to sudden, unexpected & precipitous decline, whether or not the actual businesses of the stock are performing well. President Donald Trump, during his (first) (only) term, might invoke his trade war – sometimes just words, as in the case of Tencent, but sometimes, as in the case of Huawei, strong-arming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to arrest Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei. Elon Musk might smoke a joint on a radio show to advertise a self-driving Tesla. Mark Zuckerberg might be forced to explain his convoluted philosophy of the First Amendment as the Russians post blatant propaganda, as Facebook Live broadcasts both Steve Stephens killing Robert Godwin, a total stranger to him, on a street in the east side of Cleveland because he is mad at his girlfriend, and South Side Chicago gangs kidnaping & raping a teenager. On top of that, current economic conditions resemble the drunken aftermath of a wedding which devolves into a riot, with everybody still hung over by time of the delivery of the final invoice for all the destruction –especially for big spender New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who put up the homeless in Manhattan hotels at the average cost of $175 per night per person. The financial uncertainty is so volatile that Chinese President Xi Jingping or Russian President Vladimir Putin need only suggest political threats to the U.S. economy to cause a sudden, sharp correction.  

ARIES – If the stock market, an industry sector or specific stock can drop precipitously because of the flippant remark of a famous person, then investors will become nervous & uncertain. If your broker recommends some bargain basement prices to you, go right ahead – otherwise, Mars in Taurus advises that you do nothing.  

TAURUS – Buying tech stocks for your 401K excites you as much as buying a computer or cell phone –you may need them, but they don’t really expand your heart, mind or soul. But, if you have the opportunity to buy (or for you painters out there, sell) a great antique or piece of artwork that simply blows everybody’s minds, then Mars in Taurus nods his head sublimely, “That’s what I’m talking about – that’s what’s up.”  

GEMINI – Accountants: As far as you are concerned, nobody really has the money – and Mars in Taurus agrees. Make them prove it to you!  

CANCER – Even though the bank is not inclined to loan money, Mars in Taurus suggests that, if you need money or want to make a significant purchase, to apply for a secured loan. The bank will let you know if you really can afford to take a loan – and they will communicate this to you by your interest rate.

LEO – New partners try to high-hand you? How ridiculous! Mars in Taurus advises Leo the Lion make themselves unavailable as they summarily to take the professional & political position of their bosses. Exclude the capricious. Done deal!  

VIRGO – Readers: If you buy a book, buy books printed on paper – why spend $13 on a Word document? Writers: Sell something readers can hold. Mars in Taurus poo-poos, “kindles,” “tablets” & “e-books.” If it is not printed on paper, it can & will get erased!  

LIBRA – Mars in Taurus reintroduces you to old-fashioned municipal corruption at its sleeziest: Money exchanged in an envelope in a public restaurant. There goes dessert, “Waiter, can we have our checks, please?”  

SCORPIO – You talk to your friend the banker about what the new local hotshot real estate developer plans. The banker replies, “It will never happen,” then explains why. Mars in Taurus asks, “Who is telling the truth?” They both are – but only the banker is correct. In subsequent discussions with all sorts of other people, remember to suspend disbelief as appropriate.  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: Don’t get on stage until Jupiter enters Pisces in May. Until then, Mars in Taurus further advises against trying our jokes out at your day job – you might get fired. Find a jovial & perverse censor with a taste for strong IPAs at your local bar to find out what is truly funny – and what’s allowed to be funny.  

CAPRICORN – Obey your broker about recalibrating & updating your high-tech portfolio pre- & post-correction for less losses in the short-term & more money over time. Otherwise, Mars in Taurus invites you to participate in a new & pleasurable high-stakes game: Antique, art or “collectibles” collection. Two criteria 1) You like it. 2) It is almost guaranteed (consult an expert) to increase in value.  

AQUARIUS – Somebody asks you, “Why are you so reclusive?” You respond, “Is there any good reason to leave my home?” Mars in Taurus applauds you, “Good question. Is there?”  

PISCES – Collect debts from those who owe you money. As you recall, some of those people who borrowed from you fairly demanded such money. Mars in Taurus insists that they pay you back – now. Why should you wait?

ARTICLE #6

Jupiter transits Aquarius from December 19, 2020 to May 13, 2021. Whatever the coronavirus vaccine & medications may cost to manufacture, fine. Otherwise, bankers will stonewall, shut down & disregard, in no uncertain terms, even the most esteemed academic & government expert who advises investment in new policies, starting when Uranus conjunct1 Mars in Taurus squares2 Jupiter in Aquarius from January 14 to 26, 2021, and continuing for the rest of Jupiter’s transit, “We simply cannot afford any of this – not now & not in the next ten years. Hey, you with the Ph.D. – do the math!” Jupiter has been canceled!  

ARIES – So you own enough Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Baidu, Alibaba and TenCent to satisfy you? Good. Jupiter in Aquarius therefore instructs you to stop thinking that you will get any V.C. – venture capital – for your startup. It’s not happening. Invest “conservatively”: in the (so-called) “future.”  

TAURUS – The first prediction of that new political pundit or financial analyst on your favorite TV news program went very wrong, so they will have to change careers. Too bad. Jupiter in Aquarius will now reintroduce you to the same stale crew of hacks spouting information that you already knew a long time ago. Yawn!  

GEMINI – Newly elected politicians who espouse interventionist government spending will now confront a brick wall, Jupiter in Aquarius will now present invoices for expenses incurred in 2020. Ouch! Bills must be paid first – and they can’t be paid fast. Time to transform the established discourse!  

CANCER – Newly elected left-wing politicians: Jupiter in Aquarius states that banks refuse to cooperate with your financial & social agenda. Banks want to see the government improve their credit rating immediately. This is non-negotiable. Get with the program as soon as possible.  

LEO – New business & professional associates intended to bulldoze your entrenched ways with their brand-new ideas. How ridiculous! Jupiter in Aquarius advises you to align yourself with your accountant-minded bosses, “From whence comes the money?”  

VIRGO – You’ve finished the final touch on your invention & have even tested it in real-life situations. Jupiter in Aquarius asserts that if one key private equity backer with cash & connections wants it, you’ll be swimming in gold. Otherwise, nothing. Such key players are hard to find. Don’t delude yourself.

LIBRA – Corruption Boulevard in Sin City! Jupiter in Aquarius states that high-tech has the private sector all locked up – but people always need real estate. A fee here, a fee there, a zoning ordinance to block or to unblock this or that, some “consideration” – pay to play will make a comeback. Stay out of it! Need nothing.  

SCORPIO – The banks will decide if local realtors & politicians will have their way. Given that bankers are your friends, such realtors & politicians will assume that bankers will tell you what they think. Jupiter in Aquarius advises that you let such realtors & politicians know, without saying a word, “Not by a long shot!”  

SAGITTARIUS – Do you really want to know the real reason you were fired? Jupiter in Aquarius replies, “You thought that what you said about your colleagues was funny – but, instead, it was true.”  

CAPRICORN – Risk? Jupiter in Aquarius declares that the only definition of this word should involve the arts – and not to spending money on the arts, either. The only way money should be involved is if somebody is paying money to you.  

AQUARIUS – Since whatever you say within your family, city, state or province will attract division & ire, Jupiter in Aquarius denotes that only thing you should say is the bald, blunt, unvarnished, unflattering truth. When people subsequently hiss at you, tell them in unabashed arrogance, “A year from now you’ll kiss me smack in the middle of my ass for what I just said.” Which they will.  

PISCES – You have money? Jupiter in Aquarius asks, “Who needs friends if you have money?” Keep your wallet in your pocket. ”  

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

2 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).

ARTICLE #7

Saturn transits Aquarius from December 17, 2020 to March 6, 2023. A decade of street protests, culminating in 2020, a year of COVID-19 street protests, have communicated one message: The system –economic, political, healthcare, big data, big journalism, major league sports – requires reform. The powers that be have heard the message & heed its value. But it will cost money. How much money will it cost? It will cost more than this & less than that. But it can’t cost more than this & less than that! Yet it must cost more than this & less than that – otherwise, nothing gets done. Otherwise, the argument continues. Otherwise, the videotaping of the protests, the rioting & the looting is distributed in print, on the Internet & on television with network color commentary & partisan punditry all over again.  

ARIES – Certain politicians, economists & political theorists will posit that for each individual, a job & a roof over that individual’s head is a basic human right. Under John Locke, maybe – but not in the U.S.A. In this context, Saturn in Aquarius quotes JFK – sort of: Ask not what your country can do for you, but mind your own business – and look after yourself. Microeconomics means your budget!  

TAURUS – When choosing a television news network or program or Internet website as an information or news portal, Saturn in Aquarius confirms that the Bull does not need somebody else’s opinion of what happened – the Bull just needs to know exactly what happened. The Bull will provide the opinion, thank you.  

GEMINI – Astrologers, astronomers: Chiron? Sure, why not? 1996-TL66? I’ve heard of it, okay. Eris? Yeah, I’m down. Dwarf planets? Saturn in Aquarius says, “Stop right there.” What is an actual, per se, de facto, self-evident, thing – and what is your speculative opinion?  

CANCER – The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was not a liberal social program, but, in fact, underwrote the entire lives of Dreamers who entered the United States of American beyond their individual control (similar in that way, to slaves from Africa) – an extremely expensive proposition. But Saturn in Aquarius approves, “It was real.” That being said, bankers will not pay for what they believe to be upcoming worthless liberal social programs – and such bankers will tell everybody what these social programs are.  

LEO – If your partner or rival agrees about something with both you & your boss, then all of you can sit down, negotiate & make progress together. Otherwise, Saturn in Aquarius says, “Forget it!” Commence no exercises in futility.  

VIRGO – Professional intrigue complicates your job. Saturn in Aquarius insists that all you can do is execute a stellar job before deadline & under budget. Don’t compete with saboteurs at their own low game.  

LIBRA – Politicians, especially liberals: Saturn in Aquarius denotes that overpromising to your constituents guarantees upcoming electoral setbacks. Write a “wish list” – and call it that. However, simultaneously, transcribe “the agenda.”  

SCORPIO – You are of the outspoken yet nevertheless self-evident opinion 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. Saturn in Aquarius will, as a result, provide you with a partner who will look you in the eye & challenge you, “What makes you believe that it is not your duty as a human being to make the masses of the general population better people?”  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: Saturn in Aquarius dares you to have the guts – o, como los Mexicanos dicen, los cojones – to get on stage & to tell the truth, “I am not telling ‘a joke’ – I am telling the truth.” Make impact upon a savvy audience exactly where they have lowered their psychological defenses.  

CAPRICORN – Artists, Thespians, writers: Really – strictly political art fails. Why? Because times change. Saturn in Aquarius is not suggesting that you do political art – it is suggesting that you do art about the futility of politics. The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir sings “Throwing Stones,” written by John Barlow, “And the kids they dance and shake their bones, because it is all too clear we are on our own, singing ashes to ashes we all fall down – ashes to ashes we all fall down.”  

AQUARIUS – Why should you talk politics with anybody? You’ve been talking politics for . . . . maybe your entire life. Saturn in Aquarius says that talking politics now is like taking over a chess game halfway through somebody else’s losing strategy. Analyze Foucault. Discuss economics. Plant your own garden.

PISCES – You need a job & you need money. Saturn in Aquarius instructs you to deliver value to your bosses – but know your own worth. Don’t let greedy straw bosses try to put you in a position where you negotiate against yourself.

While clicking on the link allowing entrance to the Zoom interview on the laptop, the citizen removed the surgical mask covering the citizen’s mouth and threw it into the garbage, “I hate these things.

“A travesty of economics!” the citizen in coronavirus quarantine speaks in a live interview on Zoom. “I work thirteen years at one employer, who gives me a 2% annual raise with no chance at a meritocratic promotion or raise – and now I get a raise for being unemployed! Why? Because I can’t get a job during the coronavirus quarantine. And I can only buy retail from Amazon. But that’s okay. I’ll hold my money until the retail sector reopens.”

The citizen took out his wallet from his pocket, took his money from his wallet, counted it, from hundreds to fifties to twenties to tens to fives to singles, put it back in his wallet, and put his wallet in his pocket. “Let’s just hope,” the citizen added – with a brief pause – “there will be no more riots.”  

ARIES – A frugal Mexican who works in either Canada or the U.S.A. does not care too much about the exchange rate which does not favor their native country – as long as, as Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, qualify, they carry zero debt, “I accept profit in loonies, greenbacks & pesos, señor.”  

TAURUS – Your steadfastness & consistency of character is an admirable trait – but one which power brokers like to take for granted. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, make you want more from life. There will come a moment when the true value of your steadfastness & consistency of character will demand another appraisal – by your boss or by a third party. Don’t force this issue – but when somebody else forces it, negotiate your true value.  

GEMINI – What other business people see as a valuable service or commodity that you provide is really a foolproof hedge that ensures client loyalty. Someone will try to convince you that you should sell this service or commodity in a much more aggressive fashion. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, advise you to reply, “I have absolute disdain for market volatility of my professional paycheck.” Carry on as before.  

CANCER – Bankers: Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, denote that there is a huge market for a savings account that pays 3 to 4 percent annual interest. Forget the 401K & IRAs – can you find a way to keep people’s savings safe?  

LEO – The big bosses want to sit on a ton of cash so that they may take a legitimate risk where they may lose 2% over a protracted period of time. Therefore, if you have any ideas to make money for the company, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, advise you to develop an idea with – get this! – a negative expenditure of overhead.  

VIRGO – Read Capricorn. Literary editors, critics: Scout out experimental fiction that assimilates the influences of media introduced into the wider culture since 1991. Art gallery owners, critics: Scout out experimental artwork that assimilates these same influences during the same timeframe. Writers, artists: Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, announce, “The gauntlet is thrown!”  

LIBRA – Recall the role of the narrator Jack Burden in the career of Willie Stark, based on Louisiana State Governor Huey Long in Robert Penn Warren’s All the King’s Men. Compare Jack Burden to Sal Paradise, companion to the protagonist Dean Moriarity, based on an icon of Beatnik & Hippie cultures in the U.S.A., Neal Cassady, in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, ask you, “Why do these power behind the throne characters accept the role of Cassandra in the lives of tragic men?”  

SCORPIO – Long-time friends & partners are a lot less spontaneous these days. Why? Because Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, reply, “They all have something to gain.” Do you realize their true situation? Do you take them for granted?  

SAGITTARIUS – More & more often in the professional workplace, colleagues & employees refuse to show their true personalities. Not that any of them are particularly ambitious – but Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, suggest that they feel that if they reveal themselves, they only have something to lose. Reappraise your own situation to see if this is the same. If it is, consider moving on.  

CAPRICORN – Read Virgo. Writers, artists: Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, suspect that you may now or soon represent the creative group of the age. Affiliate with similarly ambitious creative types to discuss ideas.  

AQUARIUS – Your neighborhood changes, but you still enjoy your old haunts. For that matter, Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, encourage you to discuss other new businesses & restaurants in the neighborhood. Determine whom you wish to champion.  

PISCES – You may not realize it, but you have a lot of crazy stories about people who owe you very petty amounts of money. Uranus, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, suggest that you may want to review them – in writing. A comedy routine, newspaper column or book of short stories may be not only worthwhile, but, in fact, profitable & lucrative.

< 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 #9

Neptune in Pisces trines2 1998-VG44< conjunct1 2001-SQ73> in Cancer from December 8, 2020 to March 19, 2021. Never before has there been a demand so high for news that nobody wants to hear. But, be warned: Even though everybody wants this news that nobody wants to hear, (because everybody has a stake in this news that everybody wants to hear, even though the money involved in this stake goes down in value all of the time) the news must, in & of itself, be self-evidently correct as well as verified by all appropriate third parties, because groups of individuals who share collective interests rely upon this information to make individual as well as collective decisions.. None of this news is good news – everybody already knows that. Which is why it has never been more dangerous for somebody who opposes the consensus – especially such a consensus that all the news is absolutely bad – to offer, contrary to all available facts & widespread public opinion . . . false hope.  

ARIES – Did all your siblings grow up in the city where you now live? If so, then Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 confirm that you, and all your peers & the peers of your siblings, know what you know, about the world & about each other, because you all grew up knowing the same people, places & things. Outsiders can fool one of your individually – but get you, your siblings & peers in the same room, and those outsiders face a brick wall that they will never be able to crack.  

TAURUS – Ah, the revisionist history of political discussions in the barroom after the fourth round of drinks! What is fact & what is opinion – except that one’s colleagues’ & adversaries’ opinions are but facts in themselves? Outside the barroom, facts need to confirm two separate reliable sources so that they may be presented to the public as fact. All that being said, Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 insist that what occurs in a barroom has nothing at all in common with the public opinion of the common man. Keep “opinion” & “fact” permanently separate in your consciousness.  

GEMINI – You’ve divided your money into so many different accounts, including large-scale money market accounts that you rarely consult, and you have been adding & withdrawing from several of those different accounts simultaneously over time, that you really have no idea how much money you have, both in terms of net worth & in terms of what you have available right now. Not only is this an inconvenience when you must make financial decisions about what money you can & you cannot spend, but Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 declare that it could also become an obstacle, should other business interests wish to make you an offer.  

CANCER – The more that you have traveled the world, the more that such travel has colored the way your various levels of education & your various forays into organized religion & New Age spirituality have influenced your core personality. Furthermore, Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 note that not all of these influences have integrated seamlessly – nor will they. The Crab’s ruler is the Moon – the Crab is a different person when the Moon is in Taurus than when the Moon is in Scorpio. This is not a debilitating weakness – it is a complex & unfathomable strength. The kaleidoscope of you!  

LEO – Unseemly news accompanies news of professional developments at your company. Of course, you, personally, are very interested in the new assignments, promotions & general shakeup of the different departments, many with whom you will be working. However, Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 also reveals very unpleasant legal news about a specific individual, replete with even more gossip surrounding them about many other different people. The actual news about the specific individual is truly unfortunate but the gossip reflects not any attempt to discern or to discover the truth but seems to titillate the prurient interests of the emotionally callous for immature & counterproductive reasons. Refuse to indulge such cheap, mean-spirited, low-minded amusement.  

VIRGO – During the recent criminal trial of former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow, Jr. in San Diego, the defense attorney for Winslow asked a 58-year-old homeless woman who accused Winslow of raping her if she recognized a photograph of Winslow’s black Hummer. Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 highlights this detail of this disturbingly lurid trial to remind everybody, but especially men, that when women feel extremely upset because they personally, or as a gender, feel threatened with sexual violence from men, details which may be clear to a safe & secure viewer watching this “episode” on “television” spin around in an internal, psychological kaleidoscope of blood, genitals, dirt, spit & tears – and they may remember things that do not correspond to, to use such cold impersonal terms, “the facts of the case.” But does that mean that he did not rape her?  

LIBRA – While accountants auditing the books have no intention of releasing proprietary information, upper level professional management at your employer knows well that there are very few employees sophisticated enough to fathom the real political & financial state of affairs where you work – the rest of them simply don’t have, and do not want, a clue. However much you would like to know exactly what is going on, Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73  encourage you to ask yourself, and to respond truthfully, “Out of those very few employees who are privy to enough information to understand what is happening at work – do any of them really want to understand any of it?”  

SCORPIO – Some people have the gall to spread gossip about somebody from their hometown who now lives in another country on the other side of the continent whom they have not seen for twenty years – after all, how are you going to find out the real story, hmmm? Well, Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 signify that you are not about to give up so easy. After you do your initial internet search, complete with perusals of Facebook, LinkedIn and all sorts of subsidiary social media sites, you will do what people did back in the day: You will talk with a friend of a friend of a friend. Once you get a more credible lead, you’ll be able to use the Internet much more efficiently . . . and you will be able to contradict those who doubted that you had any resources at all.  

SAGITTARIUS – While it is now imperative for you to keep track of your money, for your own sake & the sake of your family, it is still only money. Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 demand that you find a way to get clear & correct information about whether a family member who has been engaging in vice on the wrong side of town is in trouble with the law. Don’t worry if that family member is broke now – just get down to the bottom of the cold hard truth so that you may know whether or not the legal status of this family member will allow them to earn the money that they will need for the rest of their lives. Find yourself a hero or heroine to save your family member from damnation in this living Hell!  

CAPRICORN – Does any of the gossip, rumor, innuendo or disinformation of your spouse, partner, rival or . . . whoever . . . have any bearing on any issues of genuine worldly significance? If so, Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 warn you that you will need to conduct repeat, obtuse, long & enervating interrogations to find out: 1) What certain people say; and 2) What certain people mean – before determining whether what certain people say or mean is correct & accurate. If not, you will need to conduct repeat, obtuse, long & enervating interrogations to get to the bottom of things that you really did not need to know. Determine beforehand whether or not it really is worthwhile or if it is a waste of time.  

AQUARIUS – Don’t take workplace gossip seriously. While it is not always the case that, “what you don’t know cannot hurt you,” Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 state that this is case concerning what you & your insular clique do not know about the inner workings of your professional workplace, right now. Ignorance is bliss!  

PISCES – Like all the guys, you can talk about business, you can talk dividends, price-to-earning ratio & market capitalization, you can discuss five-year effects of the trade war on your entire industry sector, you can brag on your favorite NFL team  – but you also have opinions as to what color nail polish Kim Kardashian should wear, you have a passionate argument as to whether Paris Hilton has had breast implants, and you will also contribute a gift of your own to the new mother when your wife asks you to drive her to her best friend’s baby shower. What gives? Real simple: Neptune, 1998-VG44 & 2001-SQ73 empower you to make an impression on other people in every possible circumstance in life . . . . to communicate that you really care about them. It is not all about money & power! Michael Strahan works seven days a week!

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.

Jupiter conjuncts* Saturn
in Aquarius
from December 19, 2020 to January 8, 2021.

What does the ruling upcoming astrological aspect for the next twenty years in all its ceremonial glory augur for the entire world?

That’s a tall order. An encapsulation in metaphor: If his father hadn’t been Mario Cuomo, one of the most popular governors in the history of the state as one of the great orators of the 20th century, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo might have become an outstanding traffic court judge – surly, impatient, judgmental, occasionally harsh – but, lo & behold, Governor Andrew had hereditary advantages. However, as unpopular as Governor Andrew can be for his cantankerous, curmudgeonly ways, when there is a crisis, as during the Chelsea bombing in the fall of 2016 or during the Coronavirus of 2020, Governor Andrew actually becomes extremely popular even in the midst of his mistakes. Why? Because Governor Andrew’s earnest concern & professional accountability for everybody affected by tragic circumstances beyond political & law enforcement control prove endearing . . . to everybody.  

ARIES – Read Libra. Jupiter conjunct Saturn spells it out in two questions: 1) He or she got elected – but can he or she do the job? 2) He or she can do the job – but can he or she get elected? Only two yeses may apply!  

TAURUS – In Paddy Chayefsky’s classic film Network, when UBS News Anchor Howard Beale lost his job, he decided to kill himself on TV – then, indulging an extremely maniacal rant during the show where he is supposed to commit suicide, he presages the future of TV in the 21st century as his ratings go through the roof. What accounted for Howard Beale’s incredible change of fortune? Jupiter conjunct Saturn smiles cynically, “He sacrificed his credibility before the insatiable pagan idol.”  

GEMINI – The (difference) (relationship) between astronomy & astrology – Jupiter conjunct Saturn asks, “Which will it be?” What goes around comes around.  

CANCER – A homosexual advocate should be a lawyer who can tell clients whether or not they should get a mortgage, and, should they get one, the legal consequences thereof. Will such advice reflect this individual’s sexual politics? If not, then Jupiter conjunct Saturn asks, “Will this advocate, ultimately, attract any clients?”  

LEO – Your natural business or political partner refuses to acknowledge your professional overtures. Rather than risk a fracture to these stringent criteria to engage in partnership with you, Jupiter conjunct Saturn advises you to ignore them – perhaps for the next twenty years! Don’t call them – let them call you first, then talk. Because they will eventually call.  

VIRGO – Working on an invention? Working for a company that is refining Bitcoin & blockchain technology? Jupiter conjunct Saturn asks, “Are you doing this for a paycheck or are you trying to change the world?” Don’t overlook what this question implies: You need a paycheck to live.  

LIBRA – Read Aries: Political aspirants: Jupiter conjunct Saturn declares that (winning) (losing) an election can be a (curse) (blessing), respectively, in disguise. Do not rationalize the paradox.  

SCORPIO – A new political agenda infects the spirit of your hometown. You may have strong opinions about which directions you favor, but Jupiter conjunct Saturn declares that expressing them may be superfluous. The internal ambivalence which drives the direction itself cancels out its own long-term power. Allow changes to manifest as the result of unconscious tangential developments.  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians, comediennes: Jupiter conjunct Saturn declares that off-color humor proves too off-color. Jokes are supposed to break the boundaries of the social structure – until they are not. This is a contradiction – and contradictions aren’t funny. Solution: Write about a comedian whose off-color jokes are too off-color – or write about a writer who writes about a comedian whose off-color jokes are too off-color – or tell jokes about a writer who  

CAPRICORN – You earn cold hard cash honoring the belief that each individual is entitled to their opinion – not, as Jupiter conjunct Saturn qualifies, that each opinion is equal. There is a world of difference.  

AQUARIUS – You are a leader because masses of people can relate to you. However, Jupiter conjunct Saturn declares that just because somebody can identify with you does not mean that you must, or even can, or, especially, should, identify with them – not by a long shot. Learn the difference as soon as possible.  

PISCES – You must choose your associates much more carefully. How? Well, if you enjoy somebody’s company & there is no transactional exchange, this sounds like a real friendship. Otherwise, Jupiter conjunct Saturn warns of manipulation. Certain associates want something from you that you might not be willing to give. Be discriminating.
