Beauty is a beauty does – and the same applies to ugly. One’s intentions shine through in their words, their actions, the objects they make. One with magnanimous generosity attracts only friends who admire what one does. Sometimes, one is overly ambitious; sometimes, one is didactically cautious; sometimes one sees a very big market opportunity & tries to cash in. But, over time, every day, transaction after transaction, the world sees if one shows good will to all or harbors respect for none. Then, in the end, one honors the one who respects & loves all, and chastises the one who hoards, with contempt for all other people who may need or want, all that one wants for one’s greedy, selfish self while spreading only sneering malice towards everybody else.  

ARIES – Aries the Ram wants to make a mark with their creative inspiration or intellectual ambition. Nobody will stop you – do it! But Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon warn the Ram not to indulge envy of “competitors” who receive much more attention now. These individuals, sometimes doing their thing for decades, have earned something special. Give them their due.  

TAURUS – Read Libra. The genius behind Pablo Picasso’s Guernica is that painting, a pre-19th century medium, came into public consciousness in timely fashion in the 20th century with this news event of the bombing of a Spanish village by Hitler’s Nazi Germany & Mussolini’s Fascist Italy at the request of Franco’s right-wing Spanish Nationalists. Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon insist that your current work of sheer beauty is the vehicle for the epiphany of the spiritually depressed masses. What you proclaim now can change peoples’ lives. Approach what you do with reverence.  

GEMINI – If you insist upon sinning, doing the wrong thing for the wrong reason with the wrong people in dark, shadowy shady spaces, you will begin to feel reptilian – and you will slowly lose your humanity. For all your bad habits, contempt & envy, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon declare that all you need is a noble sentiment with which to give hope to your life. Your resentment of other people, especially authority figures & sanctimonious, successful professionals, will not instantly evaporate – but you will extend your heart to those who, for whatever reason, unfairly & unnecessarily suffer.  

CANCER – Read Pisces. Parents: Children go through their very positive & very negative phases. Therefore, for those children who now undergo their negative phases, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon implore you to teach them that it is only correct to admire & to celebrate the virtutes & good deeds of extremely famous people & prominent authority figures.  

LEO – Of course, everybody wants to be on the winning team with the white hats – including, as Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon pause, Judas Iscariot. Appraise your character. Analyze the consequences of your words & actions.  

VIRGO – Whether in your workgroup, your family, amongst your friends or in a court, you put yourself in a position where you judge other people. Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon remind you to judge others based upon whether what they say or do is right or wrong. Do not presume to judge other peoples’ core moral character. Judge not lest ye be judged.  

LIBRA – Read Taurus. Yes, that work of art, that religious sermon, that self-effacing gesture which saves another’s life at the expense of one’s own has the power to change everything you think you believe & are forevermore. Anti-spiritual people dispute this with mockery & wrath – Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon advises you to disregard them. The truth of the divinity is self-evident. Let the Devil argue with his reflection in the mirror.  

SCORPIO – Read Libra. Nobody has to convince the Scorpion that they just witnessed the hand of divinity in human affairs. Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon see that you wish to repent right now. But enjoy the feeling. Don’t overindulge virtue. Do the right thing today. Do the right thing tomorrow. Do the right thing the day after. Repeat. One day at a time. Tarot Major Arcana Card #20 – Judgment!  

SAGITTARIUS – Sagittarius the Archer knows both virtue & vice. Believe it. However, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon declare while that the Archer will forgive those drunk on vice, they will be especially hard upon those who are drunk upon virtue – like when Denver Bronco quarterback destroyed the career of Atlanta Falcon safety Eugene Robinson by throwing an 80-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Rod Smith in Super Bowl XXXIII, after Atlanta Falcon safety Robinson was arrested the night before soliciting a prostitute on the streets of Miami hours after receiving the Athletes in Action/Bart Starr Award, as “the player who best exemplifies outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community.” You are not who you say you are!  

CAPRICORN –Whichever artist, preacher, writer or musician proved it to you – really, it could be Taylor Swift – Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon notice that Capricorn is amazed. “Wow!” you exclaim. “Money isn’t everything.”  

AQUARIUS – Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon denote that your contempt for those who wield a negative attitude in the face of the most beautiful & soulful expression possible by a human being leads you to punish such individuals extremely severely, “Ugly is as ugly does.” Welcome to Pluto, Waterbearer!  

PISCES – Read Cancer. Parents: The spectacle of art, music, theater & public speech juxtaposing good versus evil is just another opportunity for you to teach the children. As for you, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Asbolus, Hidalgo, Diana, 2002-VR130, Saturn, Vesta, Chariklo, Mars, Chiron, Echeclus, Ceres, 2001-BL41, 1996-TR66, 1998-BU48, Pluto, 2002-VA131, the Sun, Cyllarus & the Full Sagittarius Moon understand that you already know the difference between right & wrong. Focus upon the children.  

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

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

<< Diana, named after the Roman goddess of nature & the hunt who protected the virginity of all young girls, was discovered by R. Luther in 1863 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Diana teaches both women & men to trust their own instinct & intuition as they discreetly protect themselves & others, often in total defiance of “the common wisdom.”  

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

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

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

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

<<< Echeclus, 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.  

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

<<<< 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.  

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

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

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

* 2002-VA131 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on November 9, 2002.  

@ 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.

ARTICLE #2

Retrograde1 Pallas Athena$ in Sagittarius & Scorpio sextiles2 Hylonome% in Capricorn sextiles2 Neptune in Pisces sextiles2 Jupiter in Taurus from May 10 to 25, 2024. Elderly New Yorkers who worked for Lehman Brothers, Salomon Brothers, Merrill Lynch or Goldman Sachs during the Eighties & Nineties endured acute flashbacks of a bygone era when they heard recent news of the death of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney on Leap Year Day 2024. The simultaneous rise of Margaret Thacher in Great Britian, Ronald Reagan in the U.S.A and Mulroney in Canada rejected the penury in England described by Saskia Sassen in The Global City, the malaise of both Watergate & the Oil Crisis which plagued America & the trauma of the transfer of Canada’s financial sector from October Crisis Montreal to Bay Street in Toronto. Not even in wartime were Great Britain, the United States of America & Canada so closely aligned. But, alas, even as elderly New Yorkers told their adult twenty-something grown children about this corporate North American peak of “the American century,” their adult twenty-something grown children complained, “I can’t find any articles about the Canadian guy on Google or Bing News. What was his name again?”  

ARIES – Should you adjust your stock portfolio to reflect the economic shift due to occur as a result of artificial intelligence & cryptocurrency? Your broker will tell you – but Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter advise you instead to stick to what is important. Everything that you know in your day-to-day experience from the pre-personal computer past certainly will either be completely gone or unrecognizable to those born after 1990 – but certain values & ethical principles should not be forgotten because some twenty-something is distracted & bored.  

TAURUS – Yes, Taureans love food – no joke. But as much as that, Taureans love food for thought. Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter reply, “Now that we are here in McSorley’s Ale House in New York City’s East Village, eating cheddar cheese, onions & crackers while waiting for our beer, wondering when was the last decade when McSorley’s removed the dust, I wish to ask, ‘Did you know that Joe’s Restaurant in Miami Beach preceded the existence of Miami Beach?’ Can Fraunces Tavern beat that? Stone crabs for everybody. Cheers!”  

GEMINI – Accountants: It must add up. It must zero out. Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter exhort you to say it out loud – so that you are heard. “What killed the World Trade Center? Bad engineering – bad math. Who killed Enron? Not J.R.! Bad accounting. Bad math. It must add up. It must zero out.” Word.  

CANCER – Is your marriage a business? God damn, I hope not – but there is a business component to it. Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter command that you don’t spend money that you don’t have – and that applies whether “you” means one person or two. Your solvency affects your job. Your solvency affects your banker. Your solvency stabilizes markets. Take care of business.  

LEO – Vocal real estate factions try to impose their development projects upon the rest of the city in the guise of commerce – but, once the building is built, what then? Moreover, Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter notice that such real estate factions do not respect buildings already there. “These buildings are history!” such real estate factions assert. “History makes no money!” This perks up your ears. “History makes no money in Boston & Philadelphia?” Counteract greedy plans with substantive agendas.  

VIRGO – While traveling with children to different cities, Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter encourage you to visit the local museums & independent bookstores. Build up a lexicon for your children so that they will know where certain works of art & artists appear in which cities – and which authors live where & why. Build a platform for future expansive exploration.  

LIBRA – Read Scorpio. Municipal politicians, local power brokers: Now that you see, and have helped engineer, money coming into your city, Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter encourage you to explore your city to determine where you want it to go. Find as many places as you can which make your city the best destination it can be.  

SCORPIO – Read Libra. You don’t have the influence of a local politician. However, Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter note that, as far as you are concerned, certain authentic local places deserve business, period. Use what influence you have as a local to help them get it.  

SAGITTARIUS – Long-time locals: You get a flash of insight about what your family means to your city in the past & what they will mean to it in a very different near future. Should you act upon this insight? Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter shrug, “Upon what exactly can you act? To accomplish what in particular?” Don’t try to monetize psychic premonitions. Simply live & observe. Heed what comes to pass.  

CAPRICORN – Nobody will care about the local history you remember for its own sake. However, if you attach what they history was to the purpose behind it, whether you or anybody else likes or hates that purpose, then Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter promise that you will have several extremely worthwhile conversations.  

AQUARIUS – Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter denote that a great conversation starter for the affable Waterbearer is, “What the world needs now is the successor to the Automat! A place where people can eat healthy food cheaply, get a cup of coffee even more cheaply & sit for a long time to get to know each other.” You raise your right forefinger in addition, “And cheap ice cream sundaes – no alcohol.”  

PISCES – Retrograde Pallas Athena, Hylonome, Neptune & Jupiter hear you pontificate, “In cities throughout history, the same people meet at similar businesses in the same neighborhoods over hundreds of years, and one member of the group, who is always the same thing throughout history, postulates, ‘I wonder what we were all doing the last time we met in this general location in our last lives about 150 years ago?’ And, while two or three people theorize, or repeat private theories, about what they did in pre-Civil War New York City, first generation Chicago, Gold Rush San Francisco or Larimer’s Denver, the exact same people in the rest of the group, every single time over hundreds of years, insist, ‘I don’t believe in reincarnation’ – even though they reincarnate just like everybody else.”  

* 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."  

* Hylonome, named after the wife of centaur Cyllarus, with whom she died during the Centaurs' battle with the Lapiths, was discovered in February 1995 & named during the year 2000. Hylonome bridges the gap in consciousness between Uranus & Neptune, forcing us to draw unexpected links between "accident" & "devotion" much more rapidly than is either wise or comfortable.

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

ARTICLE #3

Mars transits Aries from April 30 to June 8, 2024. The patience of the female protagonist Phyllis Smith Altenhaus of Frank Zappa’s non-film film Uncle Meat is exhausted, “You’re still carrying on with that song? It’s the same thing.” She’s been through this same act a million times before. “Forget the past! We’re coming to the beginning of a new era. We’re in the development of the inner self. But you! What do you do? You drive me crazy. Leave me alone.” What is Phyllis Smith Altenhaus really saying? “Don't fake it, baby! Lay the real thing on me,” David Bowie sings “Moonage Daydream” from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. “The church of man, love, is such a holy place to be. Make me, baby – make me know you really care. Make me jump into the air.”  

ARIES – Pluto’s long-term transit through Aquarius beginning in November, A.I., robotics, the exhilaration you feel at the accelerated pace of life – all of this excites you! Do you have a plan with what to do about all of it? You don’t have a clue – and you certainly have no plan. However, right now, Mars in Aries says that none of that is necessary. You will know what you want soon because you will want it. Until then, revel in the moment.  

TAURUS – You realize in a passing flash before your intuition or in a dream a very beneficent phenomenon that will soon become possible as a result of high technology. Mars in Aries implores you not to lose this insight amidst the grind of daily life. Keep a journal. Record the inspirations of your future.  

GEMINI – Some twenty years after the discovery of Uranus in 1781, astronomers, noticing the incorrect ephemeris data of Uranus, then calculating according to Bode’s Law, knew, relatively, where the as-yet-undiscovered planet Neptune resided, and then set about proving it. A similar phenomenon or experience arises under the current influence of Mars in Aries. Keep track of current research in your field.  

CANCER – Corporate commitments to diversity spook right-wingers. A lack of corporate commitments to diversity spooks those who require such commitments. In short, nobody trusts individuals – and can you blame them? As for yourself, you are one individual, and you seek that everybody should trust you. Mars in Aries challenges you to act in ways so that each & every person trusts you as an individual despite their inborn prejudice.  

LEO – A difficult yet informed partner realizes your deeply held goal about international business expansion. This partner knows different people, information & tactics to use to get what you want. Mars in Aries notices that this lights you on fire! “Do tell,” you smile.  

VIRGO – The logistics of automatic weapons excites you as much as the logistics of high technology – but Mars in Aries holds up its right hand, “Slow down, partner – these aren’t toys.” The speed, the logistic execution, the loud sound excites you. But do you have a plan? And, if you don’t, why do extremely powerful lethal weapons excite you? Fathom a variety of potential consequences.  

LIBRA – Whatever public launch you initiate when Mars enters Aries requires the punctilious maintenance of long-term strategy over time. This is not a one-shot deal.  

SCORPIO – Read Capricorn. You don’t like some local power broker’s political agenda, so, as Mars enters Aries, you will launch your own. Come Hell or high water!  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: Too many hecklers at night clubs have turned your gigs into an Easter egg hunt for chump change. Therefore, Mars in Aries recommends that you switch gears: Start a novel. (Operative word: “Start.” Not “Write” or “Complete.”) More later.  

CAPRICORN – Read Scorpio, and good luck to them. Whoever wants to invest that time & money in making the city where you live a better place, more power to them. For now, Mars in Aries states that your number one financial & moral priority, in addition to paying down your debt, lies in raising your children – and making your sons men.  

AQUARIUS – The war cry of the Florida State Seminoles! Mars entering Aries makes this the perfect time to proclaim optimism & initiative to the upcoming future – which is here now!  

PISCES – Windfall profit? A boost to liquid income? “Straight to the bank,” Mars in Aries says. “Straight to the bank!”

ARTICLE #4

Jupiter, which turns to Direct Motion@ on New Year’s Eve 2023, completes its transit of Taurus on May 25, 2024. The conservative economic policy of the Federal Reserve laid out circumstances earlier in 2023 which were ideal for consolidating debt & preparing for a cycle of gains – but some people kept spending, spending, spending. Reference I Ching Hexagram #57 Sun, The Gentle (The Penetrating Wind), interpreted by Richard Wilhelm, such interpretations translated by Cary F. Baynes. “No beginning, but an end. Before the change, three days. After the change, three days.” Really – the first time through, it should have been easy. Now, “Before a change is made, it must be pondered over again and again. After the change is made, it is necessary to note carefully for some time after how the improvements bear the test of actuality.” Or, in modern terms: The first time, if you were smart & kept spending that money like there was no tomorrow, you were deliberately committing suicide. However, if you kept spending that money & you are still alive to undergo these reforms. . . that only confirms that you were stupid. Are you still stupid?  

ARIES – Yes, you do have enemies. However, if you don’t take the steps to maintain personal fiscal solvency, which at this point are fairly simple & laid out for you in a way that you can do it, then Direct Motion Jupiter states that those enemies are superfluous overkill. Just concentrate on doing the right thing & you will be fine.  

TAURUS – Merchants: The political opinions of your customers mean nothing to you. As long as such customers are open-handed & honest, Direct Motion Jupiter confirms that you can do business.  

GEMINI – Accountants: Direct Motion Jupiter declares that the biggest bosses will give you latitude to put pressure on executives who refuse to get their budgets & checkbooks in order – particularly if such executives are mean & nasty to their employees. Those who show no mercy, deserve no mercy, and will get no mercy.  

CANCER – Bankers, real estate attorneys: There is an argument that instead of President Donald J. Trump enduring civil trial for receiving favorable bank terms on real estate loans, that the bank itself, Deutsche Bank, should have been the defendant instead. Bankers: For now, Direct Motion Jupiter advises you to disregard such legal & philosophical speculation. Instead, enforce loan criteria assiduously.  

LEO – Bosses: Whether you need to work with a different department within your firm, whether accounting, public relations, human resources or IT, Direct Motion Jupiter now confirms that direct liaisons will enforce the strict letter of the law – there is way too much at stake to do otherwise.  

VIRGO – Although a spouse or business partner works more seamlessly with a lawyer, publisher or gallery owner than you do, Direct Motion Jupiter nevertheless strongly recommends that you remind that spouse or business partner that certain terms are absolutely non-negotiable.  

LIBRA – Direct Motion Jupiter demands that all appointments between you & big-money clients or high-powered government officials be treated with the highest & tightest formality. All official records of your communications must be ready to be made available to the public to prevent legal entrapment. Ensure that liaisons always explicitly state, for you, for regulators & for the media, the purpose of all meetings.  

SCORPIO – Whoever helps grease the wheel with business partners must nevertheless be excluded from all business if they themselves are not conducting business. While there may be nothing at stake when such social interactions occur, Direct Motion Jupiter declares that there will everything at stake soon thereafter. This is not a thin line in the sand – this is a border wall. One is in or one is out.  

SAGITTARIUS – Bosses: While delegating authority to certain employees at work allowed you to take care of important issues at home, Direct Motion Jupiter denotes that, going forward, your presence in the professional workplace will be necessary. There is frankly too much at stake to tolerate your prolonged absence.  

CAPRICORN – Artists, musicians, film & theater producers: Everybody already knew that you needed everybody on your team to produce at a high level consistently. Now that opportunities are rolling in, Direct Motion Jupiter confirms that absolute commitment is not optional. Fire slackers. Hire those players who give 1000% to get that ring.  

AQUARIUS – Renovating, extending or building a new home requires a certain amount of money. Furthermore, when working with contractors, Direct Motion Jupiter states that such contractors have absolutely zero latitude to increase the price of their services to which they have already agreed. Retain very aggressive legal counsel to explain & to negotiate all terms.  

PISCES – Pay upfront for services. Services already rendered, pay bonuses for value. Furthermore, Direct Motion Jupiter repeats, “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.” Shun sycophants mercilessly.  

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

Saturn conjuncts@
Nessus* in Pisces
from April 27 to September 18, 2024.

They hadn’t seen each other since the Super Bowl afterparty, so they decided to just meet for breakfast at the diner – it would be easier.

They kissed. They sat down. Even though they had not seen each other for several weeks, the silence felt comfortable. They looked over the menu with deep interest. After the waiter came & took their order, then returned immediately with their coffee, they regarded each other at length.

He knew, sometimes, that he spoke cryptic nonsense, so he tried to keep it light & topical, “Don’t know if you saw it in the news – Oklahoma City will be building the tallest skyscraper in America.”

She waved her right hand in dismissive disgust. “Sears Tower in Chicago, Boardwalk at Bricktown in Oklahoma City, is there really any difference?”

Her eyes bulged. She gasped in disbelief. “Oh, my God!” she exclaimed. “I had forgotten all about it and you just reminded me. I was going to tell you about the novella I just started writing!”

He regarded her duly, misunderstanding. “I didn’t know that you wrote!” he objected.

“Usually, just songs,” she replied. She paused. “Can I tell you?”

He regarded her duly, understanding better. “Sure, you can tell me!”

“Fay Wray meets Judy Garland for breakfast at the Chock Full of Nuts at the Empire State Building to discuss the assigned topic of the two books they read for their own private book club on April 4, 1973,” she begins.

“That is the day they opened New York City’s World Trade Center,” he comments.

She smiled, clapped her hands & pointed at him. “You are very astute!”

“And one month before they finished building the Sears Tower in Chicago,” he finished his thought.

“Please stop mentioning these noplace backwaters,” she asked petulantly.

She continued. “Anyway, they are about to record their discussion about The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged – ”

“By Ayn Rand,” he filled in the blank.

“ – according to the assigned topic on a cassette player for distribution on NPR Radio,” she concluded. “In terms of the discussion, Fay Wray agreed to confine her perspective to King Kong – ”

“Explaining the Empire State Building,” he commented.

“– and Judy Garland agreed to confine her perspective to The Wizard of Oz,” she defined.

“Explaining . . . ,” he commented, “what?”

She paused. She regarded him with reproach.

“That men are still scary to women even in a prepubescent state of nature.” He extended open palms from his forearms before him.

“How could I be so foolish?” he asked – rhetorically.

He put cream in his coffee. He looked her in the eye. “So,” he began. “What is the assigned topic?”

“‘Is Ayn Rand a feminist?’” she smiled.

He smiled. He grinned.

“You like it?” she asked.

“What’s not to like?” he asked. “I assume that, given that Judy Garland died in 1967, this is revisionist history.”

“Glenn Ford decides to retire & to marry Judy Garland in 1963 after the success of The Courtship of Eddie’s Father,” she explained.

“Too much information,” he complained.

“And it is revisionist historical fiction,” she corrected him.

“I stand corrected,” he said, “but, for the moment, I’ll just sit.”

“So, Fay Wray turns on the cassette recorder, and the two discuss if Ayn Rand is a feminist, based upon The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged while eating breakfast at the Chock Full of Nuts at the Empire State Building for their own private book club on April 4, 1973,” she concluded.

“Referencing the archetypical architect Howard Roark and the archetypical engineer & inventor John Galt, both with utterly inviolable ethics,” he inferred.

“Of course!” she concurred.

“Ironically,” he added, “on the day they opened New York City’s World Trade Center.”

“It is not irony when you do it on purpose,” she corrected him. She absolutely smirked.

He sipped his coffee. He paused. He thought. “Like the groundbreaking of Liberty One on the day of the MOVE bombing,” he commented.

She paused. She did not know what he said. “I’m sorry?” she apologized.

 “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain,” he instructed via quotation. “What did you conclude?”

“What did they conclude?” she corrected him. “This is revisionist historical fiction!”

“But of course!” he confirmed.

She paused a dramatic pause for her big finale. “‘A real woman attracts a man who will then take care of their family,’” she replied.

 He sipped more coffee. He paused. “The two of them thought that?”

“The two of them concluded that, yes,” she softened her correction.

“Well,” he said, “I must read this book.”

“Novella,” she corrected. The waiter carrying their food was arriving.

“But I think she – Ayn Rand, that is – would see it differently,” he disagreed.

 “Do tell,” she instructed. “I’ll keep it brief so we can eat,” he said as the waiter served them their food. “Ayn Rand was not a Puritanical North American native,” he explained. “She was attracted to a man who knew his own power, and who proved it by building his symbol of that power, the skyscraper. What he did after that was his own business.”

“Their own business,” she corrected.

He paused. He grinned. “No comment.”

The waiter left.

“Breakfast is hot,” he raised his fork. “To be continued.”  

ARIES – Write down the scariest dreams you have under the current influence of Saturn & Nessus in a journal. They, most likely, do not reflect your psychological state of mind. Rather, they reflect the impersonal admonitions of the internationally mundane zeitgeist. How can you share them if you don’t accurately record them?  

TAURUS – Partisan voters have flippant opinions about enormously complex political positions, particularly, for example, the U.S.–Mexican border – and Texas Governor Jim Abbott & Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have flippant policies regarding those who cross that border. Saturn & Nessus will, down the line, punish such flippancy. Don’t disagree, however, with anybody. Simply infer what will happen, logically, when somebody induces a cause.  

GEMINI – Some labor is robotic & transparent, while some labor demands absolute 1000% concentration as life & death circumstances are involved. Saturn & Nessus now put the chocolate in the peanut butter: Some labor which is robotic & transparent demands absolute 1000% concentration as life & death circumstances are involved. For example, ironworkers shouldn’t drink booze at lunch when they must ascend to the half-built forty-fourth floor of the structural skeleton of the skyscraper.  

CANCER – Local anecdote has it that a large swath of Halifax, Nova Scotia is haunted with spirits cloistered indoors during the Halifax Explosion of 1917. Because Halifax had been at the apex of its civic reputation & international glory as the North American headquarters of the British Navy during World War I, Saturn & Nessus can empathize with Haligonians who believe that absolutely no good came from such a calamity. However, whether one believes in spirits or not, not every man is privy to the wisdom of the dead.  

LEO – Would the noble Leo the Lion wish to indulge a truly delectable, forbidden pornographic pleasure? Forget naked bodies – Saturn & Nessus counter that such prurient interest is for teenagers. No, this is better: Study the exploits of rogue cops of your metropolis dating back to the beginning of your city’s history. Ronnie Van Zant sings “That Smell” off Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Street Survivors, “The smell of death surrounds you.”  

VIRGO – A perpetually unresolved issue in New York City’s art world involves whether the landscape painter April Gornik is equivalent in skill & accomplishment to her husband Eric Fischl, and, therefore, to contemporary art’s greatest couples, including Lee Krasner & Jackson Pollock, Elaine & Willem deKooning, and Joan Mitchell & Jean-Paul Riopelle. But do April & Eric even care? Saturn & Nessus say, “Probably not.” McEnery & Skarstedt have booked their next shows, respectively; they have tangible deadlines; they have rich, famous & accomplished friends. They can travel when & where they like with either media attention, or not.  

LIBRA – Financiers: Joseph Jett killed Kidder Peabody. Nick Leeson killed Barings Bank, But Saturn & Nessus smile, “Bernie Madoff killed every success that he & his bloodline ever had.” Nepotism into the ninth circle of Hell, “Brimstone.”  

SCORPIO – Porn star Ron Jeremy committed sexual harassment and rape? Really, how unnecessary! How unseemly! Saturn & Nessus state that Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden in Fight Club demonstrated to the entire world throughout history that there is a place in society for indulging unbridled lust – without engaging in it before the camera. Yes, children are expensive – and if you make children, from scratch, you pay for them. But a porn star guilty of sexual harassment and rape – what exactly does a cockroach or a bedbug revile?  

SAGITTARIUS – Whether your grandmother or grandfather is dead or alive, when they were alive, they could not tell you things you needed to know about yourself or your family because 1) Your grandmother & grandfather were authority figures who both knew that those things are outright occult & forbidden; and 2) You had, and you have, no attention span. So why does your grandmother or grandfather act so outrageously, speak so loudly & seem so irrational in your dreams? Partially, most likely, because they are already dead – but Saturn & Nessus state that there is something that you need to know, and your grandparents are simply trying to ensure that no subtlety will be lost on you – which explains why they are not subtle at all.  

CAPRICORN – As you discuss the history of architecture or skyscrapers in your city, particularly if you live on the east coast, you do not view it as an unpopulated ghost town. But how do you view it? Simple – Saturn & Nessus surmise that, whether consciously or otherwise, you believe in reincarnation. Further, you believe that, while people “evolve,” people really do not change.

AQUARIUS – Reincarnation? Cool! So, who was John Lennon in a past life? What about Arnold Schwarzenegger? John Elway? Sidney Crosby? Salman Rushdie? What did they do in the past that they needed to return? And, as Saturn & Nessus look forward, “Who will these individuals be when they return and what will they do when they come back?”  

PISCES – Read Aquarius. You have premonitions of your reincarnational lives & the purpose of your eternal soul. Do you tell anybody? Saturn & Nessus suggest, “Similarly inclined friends, for sure.” But how do you know? Prove it. Not to a scientist, for God’s sake. Start small. Prove it to yourself, “What would Jane Roberts do?” ” 

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

ARTICLE #6

Chiron< conjuncts* 2000-QB243> in Aries from February 9, 2022 to May 18, 2024. Starting with the Occupy Wall Street Movement in September 2011, protestors wore Guy Fawkes masks, named after the failed early 17th century assassin & insurrectionist who attempted to blow up the British House of Lords as part of a plot to kill King James I, adding sarcastic ideological zing to the strategy to prevent law enforcement from detecting them in surveillance videos. Such Guy Fawkes masks resurfaced during larger-scale street protests following the death of Eric Garner during his arrest by NYPD officers in Staten Island & the shooting of Michael Brown by the Ferguson Police Department in the St. Louis suburb, both in the summer of 2014. Now, under COVID-19, considerable large-scale retail theft occurred as groups of vandals & thieves dutifully wore their COVID-19 masks to shield them all from identification. Conversely, only the more violent of the January 6, 2021 insurrections at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. hid their faces from photographic or videographic documentation by wrapping their faces within scarves.  

ARIES – It is not unlikely that you haven’t seen the face of certain associates since 2019, given that, anytime that you might see them in person, their faces are covered. Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 therefore warns you to be ready to notice how acutely & permanently the faces of some of these individuals have changed.  

TAURUS – Undeclared enemies will opt not to remove their mask & to show their faces to you as a means of intimidating you to keep at your distance. Because you cannot legally remove the masks from their faces, Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 states that you can reciprocate their malice by staying such enemies from above your own face mask extremely hard to their beady eyes.

GEMINI – U.S. President Joe Biden does not act upon what Russian President Vladimir Putin says in talks & negotiations but bases his military & political strategy upon what Russian President Putin does. Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 listens to “Elephant Talk” sung by Adrian Belew off King Crimson’s Discipline, “Babble, banter, burble, bicker – BROUHAHA!” Beauty & ugly is as beauty & ugly does. Don’t be fooled by the soundtrack!  

CANCER – Professionally, who makes decisions? Who gets credit? Who gets blamed? Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 wonders why the answer to each question differs. Accept that, until the answer to all these questions is the same person with the same name, the power structure is unsustainably dysfunctional.

LEO – Whether you are a container ship operator delivering foreign goods to port, a college student taking a final exam back home from class to your dorm room or a passenger on a local light rail or public transit who routinely watches other people jump turnstiles or bet the fare every day, Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 distinguishes between mandatory laws & casual, lax or selective law enforcement. Really, how the authorities choose to enforce the law should not be an issue to those who obey it.  

VIRGO – Surveillance, security: Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 indicate that burglars, shoplifters, vandals & thieves are very camera savvy. Crude disguises work much better than sophisticated camouflage. Realize when the medium of your surveillance is your main obstacle to identifying your perpetrator.  

LIBRA – You may think that you have some influence over a friend, partner or lover, about whether or not they wear a mask, whether they hide in a crowd so as to be anonymous when it is important to be noticed & vice-versa, or whether the draw attention to themselves the wrong way at the wrong time. Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 suggests that what you interpret as a cry for help may just be an attempt to secure an ongoing audience for their dysfunctional, desultory rebellion. Stop trying to save those not worth saving. Mentor high achievers.  

SCORPIO – Why won’t certain employees, highly skilled & motivated, overachieve of their own accord? Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 surmises that such talented employees intuit the possibility of punishment, whether from bosses or colleagues, for such outperformance. This requires applied retraining – depersonalized personal attention.  

SAGITTARIUS – Writers, artists: Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 inspires you powerfully with a written narrative or abstract technique where ego interacts with ambiguity, which either undermines, contradicts or leads the ego in a different direction. However, the narrative must not remain simply in the protagonist’s head. Tyler Durden speaks specific instructions in David Fincher’s Fight Club, “I want you to hit me as hard as you can!”  

CAPRICORN – Nobody really needs to know what Bob really did in “Bob Is Not Your Uncle Anymore” for Walter Becker to sing to his child off Circus Money, “Now you know for certain what the big wide world is good for, and that Bob's just not your uncle anymore.” Indeed, Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 has some very valid questions for this lyric, “Since, by definition, ‘Uncle’ represents a biological, hereditary relationship, how can one choose who is, and who is not, one’s uncle?” A valid semantic argument – but Walter Becker is having none of it. Get the point.  

AQUARIUS – When you & your older brother played “Punchbug,” as your dad & mom drove the family to the cottage on the lake for your summer vacation, your father stopped driving & punished both of you after you gave your older brother a black eye after seeing the lime-colored VW. When you kissed the daughter of your next-door neighbor underneath the Christmas mistletoe, where you surprised that your father had to hold back her father after you slipped her the tongue & gave her a hickey? The truth is, you took advantage – just as other people will take advantage under the current influence of Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243. Be prepared not just to enforce parlor game rules, but the law.  

PISCES – Holding onto a certain amount of Canadian Loonies, American Dollars or Mexican Pesos after a vacation is a common enough habit – particularly if you travel internationally across this hemisphere. But investing in it? We all know that currency rates fluctuate. However, unless you are a financial professional, Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 advises you against taking your Monopoly Money too seriously. Foreign currency for fun! But for profit? Real profit? Don’t ruin your upcoming vacation. Obsess in the future of Bitcoin instead.

< 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.

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

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

ARTICLE #7

Uranus conjuncts* 1998-SM165< conjuncts* 2002-PN34> in Taurus from April 16, 2023 to May 26, 2024. The Federal Reserve Bank raises interest rates to slow down the pace of transactions. Bankers & business leaders not only feel uncomfortable because they cannot contain the environment of different transaction methods, but those bankers & business leaders who live in states where the state government has decriminalized marijuana really do not know what to do with the accumulation of capital that they cannot funnel into the federal system. Should the Federal Reserve Bank lower interest rates to accelerate the pace of transactions would create chaos & would empower political ideologues seeking to “divide & conquer” – more generally, those MAGA Republicans inclined to emphasize “state rights” (as if the United States of America never fought the Civil War).

ARIES – Determining whether to invest in choppy financial markets is like going to the beach with your posse during a day when the waves of the ocean are particularly choppy. You notice the attitudes of women who usually put their toes in the water. You what hear the expert swimmer who goes way over their head in the water to reach the sandbar has to say. You decide to do something in-between. Then, Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 call you on their cell phone, “What’s it like at the beach? Should we go swimming?” The friends on the other end of the phone line will only listen to your first sentence. Codify the nonexistent consensus.  

TAURUS – If you share & promote your interests with like-minded individuals who firmly & sincerely believe you are promoting the greater good, then say so – yes, as an assertion of what you believe, but also as a marketing ploy. If, however, those interests with like-minded individuals do not serve other people but only yourselves in a zero-sum game, Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 promise that nobody will believe you, and you must in fact suffer, if you choose to wax altruistic in what is really an us-against-them capitalist business deal.  

GEMINI – The public will accuse you of envy if you speak out against business leaders promoting their own interests at other peoples’ expense. What the public thinks is irrelevant – Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 urge you to speak out anyway. Before you do, however, ensure that those business leaders promoting their own interests at other peoples’ expense really are as self-serving as you first intuited – the public will not believe you if you later admit that you spoke in error.  

CANCER – Read Leo. Professional & academic associates want to discuss the particulars of their agenda & how to move them forward. Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 confirm that no other substantive content will fit within such borders. If you wish to discuss your own agenda, you must do so in relation to their agenda. Some associates will interpret this as an offer to work out a deal; maybe it is or maybe it isn’t. However, unless you are extremist meteorologists, nobody will be discussing the weather.  

LEO – Read Cancer. Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 denote that bosses mistrust agendas. Define your terms beforehand. Present nothing that challenges such definitions – unless you want to exterminate all political capital with them for the rest of your career.  

VIRGO – Aficionados of literature, music & art: Emphasize the universe of your total understanding of all of the arts under the current influence of Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 by codifying your own personal principles of aesthetics & virtuosity, with examples. Reference to & a study of Socrates & Aristotle is not forbidden!  

LIBRA – Do you favor the control of the sale of marijuana, as well as alcohol, by the state, such as the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board or the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBOs)? Do you believe Amazon, Google & Facebook should be taxed on the state as well as on federal levels? Do you favor the fact that the State of Florida requires no annual personal Income Tax? Should the sale of firearms locally, state, provincially or federally be subject to control by regulation & taxation? Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 may seem to ask you questions about the hot button issues of 21st century modern life but is really determining your own personal infrastructure of the state. Consider how all your answers manifest as buildings, infrastructure & consequences.  

SCORPIO – A partner’s word, as well as a contract, is binding. Furthermore, Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 declare that your behavior & attitudes affect not only a partner but also your partner’s spouse, family, property & employer. Ponder what all of this means not just for yourself, but what it meant for John, Paul, George & Ringo.  

SAGITTARIUS – Read Capricorn. Fellow employees may not share your own financial or economic interests – but, really, there is no reason to discuss it. Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 advise silence about your own financial or economic interests in the professional workplace. Period. Absolutely.

CAPRICORN – Read Sagittarius. Because creative ventures with fellow artists can explode significantly into public consciousness when you perform with them to live audiences, Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 declare that it is imperative that you keep the theory & substance of such performances to live audiences absolutely secret. The avant-garde will not prematurely telegraph!

AQUARIUS – Yes, the bank run just after George Bailey’s wedding on It’s a Wonderful Life is a good example of what can happen under the current influence of Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34. Yes, some will cooperate. Yes, some will extract everything that they are owed, now. Therefore, it is incumbent upon the leader, who may be you, perhaps, to act against the interests of any one specific individual so as to serve the greater good.  

PISCES – While you would like to believe that it would be ideal for the greater good for you to divest all your holdings & to walk away from the table, the truth might be it would be better for everybody involved if you took full & absolute 100% political & economic control. However, Uranus, 1998-SM165 & 2002-PN34 are aware that you may be thinking that the collective interests you now represent may just be one other unenlightened faction preventing a larger evolution – which may or may not be the case. In any & all instances, the only thing you can do is to obey your conscience, which refuses to negotiate terms with either allies or adversaries.

ARTICLE #8

Neptune in Pisces trines2 1998-VG44< conjunct1 2001-SQ73> in Cancer from March 7 to May 9, 2024.  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 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!

ARTICLE #9

Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion* from May 2 to October 12, 2024. There is a world of difference between response & reaction. Response? A tennis warm-up amongst friends with well-tuned & melodious instruments. But a reaction – an even-handed statement followed by an ostensibly equally even-handed, but actually terser, tighter & extremely violent declaration of hostilities against an enemy of the people, an ultimatum with a deadline or an announcement (between two people, an announcement by some self-appointed head of state) of the severing of friendly relations. As well as much less civilized, barbaric reactions, bovine & vulgar insults by a voice ever-increasing in volume, shaking with rage. The person who made that original even-handed statement wonders, “Really – was there any good reason for such unrestrained antagonism?” On some occasions, a third party will be watching. “Absolutely not,” they answer what was intended to be a rhetorical question. “One might argue that such a malicious or visceral reaction is in fact illegal.”  

ARIES – Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn emphasizes that how you speak with friends should differ significantly with how you speak with strangers. With friends, you can express how you really feel – but, if you seek to express an idea or feeling that is politically volatile or incorrect, lower your voice, even if you are in private. With strangers, express what you think as you veil unseemly, politically incorrect sentiments. Do feel free to raise the issue of “political correctness” without overtly violating it.  

TAURUS – As Marshall McLuhan emphasized in Understanding Media, expressing opinions through media which utilize “acoustic space,” including especially television & radio, inflames emotions, while media which refrains from doing so, such as reading a newspaper or book, does not. (Nobody in the room hears the words that one person reads – even the reader himself or herself). Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn therefore connotes that those who express extremely hostile or malicious opinions in media which already inflame emotions, are like criminals disturbing the peace – and will aim to keep such expression firmly in check.  

GEMINI – Astronomers, astrologers: When Sir William Herschel submitted to the Royal Society the records of his observations of the newly discovered planet Uranus in 1781, he included the specifications of telescopes he built & used – which, as it turned out, were more powerful than any telescope in England. Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn now asks, “In the 21st century, who can afford to build & to use their own telescope? What does that say about astronomers & astrologers who wish to study & to make an impact on science if they are not directly affiliated with, and, in fact, paid, by universities with observatories?”   exhorts you personally to take steps to challenge such academic courtiers such as CalTech’s Brown, who seeks to claim ownership of that which he cannot buy & which in fact is not for sale: Knowledge & science.  

CANCER – LGBTQ political adherents: Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn announces that your pollical cause & constituencies will be under focused siege through the complete transit of Pluto in Aquarius in 2043. Reactions may be as violent as the 1898 Wilmington Coup or the 1919 Tulsa Race Riots against African-Americans. Not everybody will love you – ever. Define your role within the greater matrix, champion it & seek allies who will protect & champion you. Nothing happens automatically with a snap of any politician’s fingers.  

LEO – Partners, opponents & rivals will challenge you, not because they dislike you, but they respect your power. All that is well & good, and, frankly, you could care less. Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn states that what concerns you is simple, “Can I work with this individual?”  

VIRGO – Yes, artificial intelligence will change your workplace. Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn qualifies, “It may greatly surprise you how artificial intelligence does so.” Stay tuned. Keep an open mind.  

LIBRA – Kansas City Chief tight end Travis Kelce wanted to celebrate his third Super Bowl Championship by getting drunk at the victory parade held by Kansas City, Missouri on Valentine’s Day. No big deal – until shots rang out & Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas was running away from teenage gunmen. Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn confirmed that Kansas City Chief tight end Kelce learned some lessons Valentine’s Day. “Jesus, man, I just wanted a girl!” Travis might say. Point conceded. But being a prominent civic citizen & family man comes with strings attached – strings that pull tightly. Even if one is merely marrying the soccer star of UMF Afturelding of Mosfellsbær, Iceland, Brittany Lynne Matthews, as his best friend Patrick did. Take heed.  

SCORPIO – Unless you are mayor of your city, you have a limited voice in what happens within it. Even so, Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn responds that it is not enough for you to reject the plan currently being implemented – you must provide a plan in the alternative to replace it. What is your plan? Better yet, have you begun implementing your plan, in a smaller scale, in some isolated neighborhood or smaller cross-section of your city? Talk does not cook the rice.  

SAGITTARIUS – Jerry Seinfeld is a comedian. Because his responsibilities to the public end with comedy, sometimes (not always, sometimes) Jerry behaves badly. Jon Stewart is also a comedian. However, because Stewart’s comedy is grounded first in political satire & later on in political commentary, even more so than Saturday Night Live, whose comedy is grounded in political parody, Jon Stewart can tip the scales of elections. Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn asserts that, while Jerry Seinfeld can do what he likes & drinks coffee in his vintage car, Jon Stewart must consider not only what he says, but, in fact, how he behaves.  

CAPRICORN – First, pay your debt – Capricorn the Goat owes more money than it should. Moving from there, Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn urges you to take out a bank loan to buy equipment that will earn you money in the future. Compare Leo, your 8th house of other peoples’ money, with Aquarius, your 2nd house of your own money. Leo is a big, extravagant production for lots of people. Aquarius is you – your own self-interest, and what you say to promote it. First purchase: Webcam or TV studio. YouTube channel. Also, maintain a print website.  

AQUARIUS – Your most mild-mannered statement evokes the most extreme intellectual & emotional reactions under the current influence of Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn. This will not change. The solution: You must turn yourself into the Tabula Rasa, the blank slate. Allow others to project onto you, as if you are Sigmund Freud or Carl Jung. Concentrate upon how other people irrevocably reveal themselves.  

PISCES – Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius & Capricorn is inducing people to define, to quantify & to transform who he or she is in the absence of any & every context of other people – which might seem to be an absolute contradiction of who Pisces is, how Pisces lives & what Pisces does. Consider the phrase, “You define yourself by the company you keep,” or the principle where you are mathematical mean of your five best friends. Remove all these people from the room except yourself. Stare into the video camera. Begin. ”

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

ARTICLE #10

The North Node$ transits Aries from July 12, 2023 to January 29, 2025. Nobody ever doubted that Theodore Kaczynski was an outright genius – nobody. A brilliant mathematician, his writing, Industrial Society and its Future, otherwise known as The Unabomber Manifesto, published in toto by The Washington Post on September 19, 1995, lives on, disregarded – disregarded because Kaczynski, “the Unabomber,” willfully committed multiple premeditated acts of murder through terrorism. One personal experience which at some point surely induced Kaczynski to even consider such murders lay in the fact that society took him for granted – this unbounded genius with his enormous brain belongs in a university system where he can teach. Nobody ever tried to place Elon Musk, another unbounded genius with sociopathological tendencies, to toil away forever in a university system in utter disregard of the natural gifts which got him the job in the first place – but Musk had his own bank account on which to draw while Kaczynski did not. Still, if The Washington Post would publish him, even out of the most debased & tortuous of circumstances, Kaczynski really could have worked as an academic, with a little foresight & significant mentoring, as he sought to publish his ideas, like astoundingly successful geniuses like Saskia Sassen, author of The Global City and Territory Authority Rights, or the current reigning genius of intellectual thought, economist Thomas Piketty, author of Capital in the Twenty-First Century. Better than committing suicide in ADX Florence, the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado – a fate much worse than the former fallen football star, movie actor, commercial industry spokesman & TV sportscaster, O.J. Simpson.  

ARIES – Whether you have read it, forgotten it or never even heard of it, the North Node in Aries assigns you a test for 1000% of your current grade: “Answer the question posited by Ayn Rand in her novel Atlas Shrugged, ‘Who is John Galt?’” (Why does Atlas shrug? Atlas replies, “Why do I care that the whole world that relies upon me for their survival takes me for granted? It is not what I want to do.”) The self-reliance of the Übermensch!  

TAURUS – Psychologists discuss, “the intuitive intellect.” The North Node in Aries induces you to obey, “the instinctual intellect.” Know what motivates others to act as you disregard their spoken words – “Elephant Talk” by Andrian Belew off King Crimson’s Discipline, “It’s all talk. Elephant talk. Elephant talk. Elephant talk!”  

GEMINI – Simple ideas often introduce, yield to or represent sweeping eras. Some point to the first three words of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, “Call me Ishmael,” as the origin of existentialism. Two songs, “She Loves You,” by the Beatles and “Don’t You Want Me, Baby,” by the Human League, commenced the Sixties & the Eighties, respectively. The North Node in Aries exhorts you only to express as you consume all other peoples’ creative expressions. Don’t try to control a sea change.  

CANCER – Vicious outlaws who brazenly strategize extremely dangerous & overt criminal acts fully understand that they can become, metaphorically or literally, “Public Enemy Number 1.” But did Beatle John Lennon expect the U.S. Government to try to deport him before Mark David Chapman assassinated him? Did Salman Rushdie expect Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini to issue him a death sentence for The Satanic Verses? The North Node in Aries offers no clear answers – only the next unworthy victims.  

LEO – Extremely dangerous work in the interests of the state makes the masses curious. If you continue doing it without telling your story – especially if it involves espionage – the North Node in Aries will worry that it can cause you & your soul damage. If you are allowed to & can tell it, write a book about it. Publishers can’t sell unwritten or half-written books.  

VIRGO – Whether your point of contention be sexual, business or creative, the North Node in Aries denotes that it is better to go it alone than it is to hate your partner.  

LIBRA – There is no reason to cooperate anymore. The North Node in Aries states that a partner now goes their own way. Start something new, whether in publishing, government, politics or the arts, communicating with the public.  

SCORPIO – Accusations are proven false. The North Node in Aries promises you a return to life as normal. Resentments will only imprison your psychology. Banish the past. Move on.  

SAGITTARIUS – Stop working on other peoples’, companies’ or industries’ ideas. The North Node in Aries urges you to get the money you need, whether through grants, employment, a patron or a secured bank loan, and to focus upon your own creative vision.  

CAPRICORN – The business partnerships of the professional workplace now exhaust even the worldly & ambitious Capricorn the Goat. How can that be? Because, as the North Node in Aries surmises, a lot of it has nothing to do with you. If you are a parent, your family & children become a valid outlet. Whether if so or if not, the motivation is the same – you want to know, “Why did I wake up this morning? What does this mean to me?”  

AQUARIUS – Stop appeasing impartial authorities, whether a judge, a publisher, your professor. The North Node in Aries dares the Waterbearer to say what they want & to speak their mind. Hilarious! Scandalous! Shocking!  

PISCES – Loan no money. Save more money. Manage your money more carefully. Work more hours to make more money. The North Node in Aries puts it as simply as possible, “Money money money.” Money money money!

$ 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.
