Counselors, advisors & colleagues now codify power brokers, politicians via their analysis of sales demographics, political polls & the renewals of various types of membership fees & annual subscriptions, these counselors, advisors & colleagues all have quotas to reach & have no patience or tolerance for assertions of individuality which cut into their numbers. While certain prominent extremely wealthy & independent individuals know what they think & will say whatever they want, should they choose to speak, skeptical individuals gather together spontaneously to discern which large-scale factions are polluting the environment with their highly graphic & stylized “writing on the walls” to identify, to ascertain & to weigh legitimate & illegitimate criteria to determine not only what to believe but also to gauge how much real choice they have as sovereign individuals. “But in no case should we acquiesce,” the leader of this loose coalition of individuals asserts, “And we should assert that no choice is given to sovereign individuals who refuse to throw their support behind somebody else’s power block.”  

ARIES – Your option is phrased to you in such a way that insults you, “Who do you want to represent you in your behalf?” Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon all hear you loud & clear as you reply, “Are you kidding me? I speak for myself.” When you are told, “That is not an option,” nobody needs to tell you not to roll over & bark like a dog at its master – but you really should make an effort to coordinate with others who feel, but who may not think, exactly as you do.  

TAURUS – Help Libra. Many separate individuals are presenting many different menus of options – some of which you like & dislike within each menu. Therefore, when somebody asks you to choose the deal on one set of plans or another, you refuse to commit. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon commend this strategy as ingenious: You are cooperating with a system of which you do not approve in order to force it to work better.  

GEMINI – You are a pragmatist. The options before you are not going to change. You & everybody else around you must make a choice. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon therefore advise you to ascertain which package works best for you, attempt to negotiate provisions that you want, then close the deal within a fixed timeframe. If anybody asks, or if you feel like explaining, say, “These are the two things I needed & this package had it. The rest? Who cares? And I only have so much time to waste on this.” Sell it to them lukewarm.  

CANCER – The options presented before you were not designed to waste anybody’s time but were intended to accommodate everybody – which, in the end, wasted everybody’s time. You know which option presents the bulk of what you need. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon therefore encourage you to select it without further discussion. Listen to no sales pitch. Exchange no personal experiences. Get back to work.  

LEO – Somebody wants to argue with you about the relative merits of the options presented before you. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon advise that you disregard them. You know what you need; you know what clients need; you know what bosses need; you know what employees need. Provide. Entertain no sophistry.  

VIRGO – Different options & packages were presented to you; you made your decision about them & returned to work. And well you should. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon understand that you knew exactly what you want & had precious little time to discuss it with anybody for any reason. You are pursuing huge ambitions & the last thing you need is middling bureaucratic distractions. Let others twiddle thumbs. Back to work!  

LIBRA – Cooperate with Taurus. The options & packages presented to you do not satisfy any of your needs. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon demand that you need a means of expressing this frustration to an individual or department who can accommodate you. This is easier said than done. Know what you want. Write what you want in plain language & hold that piece of paper in your hand for the moment when a potentially capable & powerful representative will talk with you – and your group of individuals.  

SCORPIO – Bosses, managers, owners, employees: Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon warn that you risk real divisions, defections & trouble later in the year if you choose blanket options & packages for all the people under your charge in the interests of expediency – and without consulting them.  

SAGITTARIUS – You are very annoyed that institutional forces demand that you choose between one of a few option packages which contain little that you actually need – as far as you are concerned, this is a waste of your valuable time. Ironically, Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon suggest that you work with an advisor to give you a recommendation. Request the broadest possible bottom-line analysis. Choose based upon the most obvious & glaring benefit.  

CAPRICORN – Administrative issues within your firm threaten to distract you from launching large-scale initiatives. Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon remind you to continue to be practical. Find out what administrators demand from you. If these issues are not important, come to a conclusion as quickly as possible. Dispatch paperwork immediately. Be done with it.  

AQUARIUS – Some people deeply need the options & packages of goods & services that you represent for sale. However, Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon denote that you are more likely to encounter cynical, overwrought, overworked individuals who do not need anything that you have to offer. Disregard them. Find & help those who need you.  

PISCES – Options & packages from which employers & other power brokers demand you choose seem like meaningless distractions amidst your daily efforts to work, to take care of yourself & to provide for your children & family. Therefore, Venus, Sappho, Mars, 1998-BU48, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Pluto, 2001-KF77, Cyllarus, Mercury, Uranus, 1996-TR66, 2002-VR130, Mars, Chiron, Vesta, Hidalgo & the Full Libra Moon suggest that you talk with an advisor to determine if you will or you might need, or can use, any of this. Come to a quick conclusion so that you will not be wasting your valuable time.  

% Sappho, an asteroid discovered in 1864, is named after the literary & spiritual leader of a mystery temple which presided over the secret sexual rites of the goddess Aphrodite, according to Demetra George's Asteroid Goddess. Sappho was discovered in 1864 by N.R. Pogson at the oldest observatory in India: the Madras Observatory, founded in 1792. Sappho, a refinement in the octave bridging Venus & Neptune, explored all possible sexualities to their ultimate ecstatic & complex conclusions.  

^ 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.  

< 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."  

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

@ 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.  

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

(z) 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.

(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.  

(b) 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.  

* 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.

Mars transits Aquarius from March 30 to May 12, 2020. Speed, in the absence of any real purpose, is a useless & dangerous thrill. Yes, an airplane drives 150 to 175 miles per hour on an airport runway, but that is because an aircraft must drive that fast as a prerequisite to lifting off the ground. Whether speed serves a purpose or not, many people prefer vehicles that facilitate speed while neglecting to pay sufficient attention to the effectiveness of that vehicle’s brakes. That being said, there is no reason to wax puritanically against speed, as many a loving couple have enjoyed the feeling of power & speed of their automobile on the highway as the two of them keep an eye out for a good place to “park.”  

ARIES – National politics make you frown & hold your nose, “I’ve got to get away from all this horrible crap!” Of course – but there is no need to fly far, far away. How expensive! Mars in Aquarius suggests that you & your spouse or main squeeze find some local small town with an Italian restaurant, a movie theater & a nice, cozy hotel – away from any & all limelight.  

TAURUS – Too much time in front of a TV or computer will only make you much angrier on an unconscious level. Rather than blow up with rage at some absurdly random provocation, Mars in Aquarius advises you to find yourself a comedy club so that you may watch stand-up performers with your love interest. Talk about who was terrible with a critical honey – who can imitate bad comedians so well that it makes you laugh!  

GEMINI – Astrology aficionados: The extremely depressing stellium of planets in Capricorn discourages you from devoting too much attention to a subject that normally enthralls you. Without getting too disciplined about it, Mars in Aquarius encourages you to discuss the long-term transit of Pluto in Aquarius from 2023 to 2043 with like minds. Free-associate to discuss past trends of outer planets in Aquarius & how they affected you on a personal level. Don’t depress yourself – instead, use astrology to liberate your memory & imagination.  

CANCER – Shake yourself free of political alliances. Mars in Aquarius will severely limit your options if others successfully force to lock you into their sectarian agenda. Pursue your own success as a sovereign individual. Don’t allow anybody, including “partners,” to back you into a corner about any political position.  

LEO – Circumstances & other people may depict your meeting with an ideal potential professional partner as a fortuitous & silent mutual commitment arranged by fate. Fortunately, Mars in Aquarius notices that both you & this ideal potential partner view this interpretation as unnecessarily binding & burdensome. Both of you already have projects in the works, demands by bosses, responsibilities to clients. Fulfill your duties to those already entrenched within your life. Treat this new partnership (if it really exists) naturally.  

VIRGO – Be neither intimidated nor excited by announcements by new highly touted department heads about a sweeping technological upgrade at your workplace. Mars in Aquarius surmises that it is highly likely that such a plan has not been approved by any higher-ups – and that there will be a fight to secure the budget. Champion nothing. Oppose nothing. Notice the office politics & the vague platitudes in the wind . . . . as everybody does nothing.

LIBRA – As inspired as you are by your affiliation with, and cooperation amongst, extremely powerful politicians or filmmakers, Mars in Aquarius warns that too public a display of such formidable alliances establishes expectations far too lofty to succeed – especially under a glaring spotlight. Coordinate behind the scenes via emails & texts. Develop a rapport before you forge or agree to an agenda.  

SCORPIO – Large-scale, big-name real estate developers try to make a big splash with a publicity stunt to let everybody in your city, state or province know, “We are here!” Will it work? Possibly – although Mars in Aquarius notes quite a bit of visible, vocal opposition. Truth be told, these players need to do a lot of hard work behind the scenes – as well as the type of negotiation, with the type of people, wherein they want . . . no publicity.  

SAGITTARIUS – Performers, comedians: Mars in Aquarius says that you don’t want star billing. You don’t even want to be in the official lineup. You want to fly under the radar, no expectations – then dazzle people from out of a clear blue sky. Create word of mouth, “Wow! That was quite brilliant. Who was that?”  

CAPRICORN – Don’t overemphasize your new, radical (radical for you!) political position. Mars in Aquarius advises you not even to state it. Discuss the topic & discuss around the topic with colleagues & employees. Create a groundswell as you till the soil of public opinion.  

AQUARIUS – Avoid public speaking, photo opportunities & videotaping. Mars in Aquarius warns that you will not understand the response of your audience nor the motivation behind it. Eschew artistic competitions, especially involving music. Discuss politics only with friends. Endeavor to understand why your public persona must transform.  

PISCES – People move, think, talk, do much faster under the current influence of Mars in Aquarius. Although this trend will slow down soon, it will start again & continue throughout Saturn in Aquarius from 2021 to early 2023. Does this mean that you must maintain a blazing, unyielding pace? Oh, no – you must simply find viable ways to assert your own rhythm.

Saturn transits Aquarius
from March 22 to July 1, 2020.

When Thomas Hart Benton rejected a career in politics, where his father, Democratic Congressman from Missouri Maecenas Benton, and his great-uncle, Democratic Senator from Missouri Thomas Hart Benton, the Jacksonian Democrat given credit as the architect of the westward expansion of the United States known as “Manifest Destiny,” established a deep American legacy, in order to become an artist, his innate knowledge of how to navigate political trends served him well. As an instructor at New York City’s Art Students League at the end of the Twenties, Benton implemented knowledge gained from his travels to Europe about European art trends as he taught students techniques about motion & movement in composition that he admired in the pre-Renaissance paintings of El Greco. Less than five years later, Benton ascended to a dominant role as the leader of Socialist Realist painting in America, after explicitly rejecting European modernism, which included Grant Wood & John Steuart Curry – a role memorialized when Time Magazine placed Benton on the cover of its Christmas Eve 1934 issue.

Keeping Benton’s innate political acumen in mind, it is difficult to discern whether Jackson Pollock fully understood the significance of the successful career of his well-heeled blue blood instructor from the Art Students League, who would give Jackson room & board for three summers at his summer home in Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, when Life Magazine entitled its photo-essay, “Jackson Pollock. Is he the Greatest Living Painter in the United States?” in August 1949. Pollock must have known that Benton himself appeared on the cover of Time – although he had been battling the demons of deep alcoholism throughout the Thirties. However, in his narration of Hans Namuth’s film Jackson Pollock 51, “In New York, I spent two years at the Art Students League with Tom Benton,” Pollock referenced an art school instructor & fellow artist (who was in fact a close mentor). Pollock disregarded the lineage & legacy that links Benton’s Depression-era art movement, which Time Magazine championed for its rejection of a European modernism that Pollock directly inherited, with the settlement of the same American West in which Jackson Pollock grew up . . .  previous to the Civil War, “He was a strong personality to react against. That was in 1929.”  

ARIES – A professional colleague with a distinguished pedigree who excelled in high school, college or professional sports, or who served as an elected official, in any capacity, is not, “one of the guys,” or “my girlfriend.” However, while such distinguished individuals may be aloof, Saturn in Aquarius asserts that they are certainly human. However, their status forces them to behave differently – to behave with nobility at all times. Be cognizant of their social responsibilities.  

TAURUS – A former Super Bowl champion who becomes a national sportscaster cannot root for his team. A former Senator or Congressperson must dismiss partisan concerns when appearing on national television. Of course, if you are not above the fray, you can say whatever you like – but, by definition, Saturn in Aquarius reminds you that, by doing so, you will never get the respect of those who must, by duty, remain above the fray.  

GEMINI – Astrologers: The economies of publishing has shrunk the ability of visionary & innovative astrologers to publish their ideas. Therefore, Saturn in Aquarius strongly recommends that you take pains to attend lectures to meet & to talk with well-published astrologers. New developments, discoveries & political trends in astronomy & astrology since the last transit of Saturn in Aquarius from 1991 to 1994 have altered the playing field. Coordinate with the masters & mentors to determine what you, and all of you, should do next.  

CANCER – Certain prominent public personas will now try to take a political position regarding or based upon homosexuality. Because their ideological slant can prove emotionally painful to many, Saturn in Aquarius advises you to keep your distance from such potentially contentious discourse. However, pay very close attention when a prominent or noble blue-blooded public figure offers their most thoughtful perspective.  

LEO – Saturn in Aquarius denotes that a new business partner or potential spouse possesses the chemistry to bring both of you widespread public success – if each of you are truly committed. If one of you does not go all the way or backs out of the deal, havoc & pain will ensue. Remain uncommitted until each of you determine what both of you truly want.  

VIRGO – Saturn in Aquarius prescribes that the secret for both success at work & good health is a steady stream of fresh air. Cardio at the gym can help, during the winter – but otherwise? Run or bike outdoors. If possible, compete. Leave the building every day for lunch. Oxygen!  

LIBRA – If you have volunteered for political campaigns in the past, Saturn in Aquarius suggests that you may be able to ascend the rather pliant hierarchical rankings by bonding intellectually & ideally with an experienced, charismatic mentor willing to show you the ropes.  

SCORPIO – A big-money, high-powered local blue blood intends to make their mark on the city & state or province in which you live. Saturn in Aquarius recommends that you become their counterpoint, through political, journalistic or social means. This does not make you either partner or nemesis – although you will occasionally play the role of both. Neither ally nor opponent – simply the most informed voice.  

SAGITTARIUS – Considering a new career as a stand-up comedian, television commentator or political pundit? Saturn in Aquarius declares that you will need to take chances which cause mistakes – but the wrong mistake can end your career. Talk with an astrologer about when you can & when you cannot take risks over the next four years.  

CAPRICORN – Read Aquarius. Taking a strong adversarial political position can cost you your job or new professional opportunities. Saturn in Aquarius states that, while you will be able to regain some of these opportunities over time, others, you won’t. Do you really need to assert what you believe so forcefully every chance you get? Follow the example of a better-bred, better-educated colleague who observes everything silently.  

AQUARIUS – Read Capricorn. You will not immediately know what damage you inflict upon yourself by taking a strong adversarial political position. Indeed, Saturn in Aquarius even suggests that, several months later, you may suffer censure, punishment & penury without anybody telling you why. Don’t go off half-cocked – your undeclared enemies are more ruthless than you realize.  

PISCES – The pace of life accelerates. Saturn in Aquarius warns the cautious yet slow Pisces that some enemies hide themselves in a blur of speed. This will prove especially treacherous if more than one enemy acts in coordination against you. Beware fast-moving vehicles – especially if you are not riding in one.

Pholus* conjuncts@ the South Node$ in Capricorn from February 3 to May 18, 2020. In the early 20th century, and probably before that, many a young man who parted unhappy ways with his family or got into borderline big-time trouble with the law would find his way to the docks, get a job on a ship & find a new life at sea. While at sea, the young man does as his captain commands, swabbing the deck, working mess, serving as lookout at the top of the mast. When not working, there is not much for the young man to do & no place for the young man to go. There is no place & no means for him to get into any trouble. His incarceration upon a ship at sea turns into a psychological, moral & financial liberation.  

ARIES – In corporate America, the workplace & politics, the more experience that one individual accumulates, the more that power brokers can question that one individual. . . and doubt that individual’s reply. Pholus conjunct the South Node warns that this is not an invitation to give the phenomenal rookie carte blanche, which, really, can only happen in sports like baseball, basketball & hockey – certainly not football. Truth be told., only certain people can do certain jobs. Don’t impede them, or allow yourself to be impeded, by false, myopic or inapposite criticism.  

TAURUS – After spending 55 days detoxifying while doing time on an assault charge at Riker’s Island, Sid Vicious overdosed fatally his first night out of prison on some pure heroin. Pholus conjunct the South Node comments that Vicious did not know how to handle freedom. Does that mean that Vicious deserved permanent incarceration? That’s a gross overstatement – but it would have been preferable that Vicious was not dead.  

GEMINI – Do you have a hedge in your 401K or investment portfolio against the sudden precipitous fall of stock or bond prices? Pholus conjunct the South Node advises that you talk to a broker to get their informed scoop. Your net worth might not climb as rapidly as before – but neither will it crash, violently, and, potentially, permanently. Slow all potential doom down to a crawl.  

CANCER – Read Virgo. The most representative statistic of the Gordie Howe Hat Trick, wherein a player gets a goal, assist & fight, lies in the fight. Why? Because Howe, the driving force of one of the NHL’s “original six” franchises, the Detroit Red Wings, did not have the luxury that many prolific hockey scorers, commencing the Eighties, required, of protection by a low-scoring, no talent, no teeth, “goon.” Now, you take a look at the game you are now playing, seeking to “take out” the opponent’s major scorer. Pholus conjunct the South Node says that this strategy is wrong, “Take out the goon – everything else will take care of itself.”  

LEO – You not only need your colleagues to run interference by adversarial professional superiors seeking to delay & to derail current projects, but Pholus conjunct the South Node adds sagely that you must get rid of those colleagues who constitute interference themselves.  

VIRGO – Read Cancer. Student athletes: The most talented player on your team may be riding the bench. Doesn’t the coach know how good that guy is? Absolutely – Pholus conjunct the South Node whispers that the coach is trying to prevent the guy from getting killed.  

LIBRA – Some lawyers in New York City & software engineers in San Francisco making $160K annual cannot afford the rent. Pholus conjunct the South Node implores you to find a place to live where you have enough liquid income to save money. The odds are against you!  

SCORPIO – Since a plethora of dark planets transiting Capricorn now warn you against issuing professional instructions directly yourself, you must therefore delegate a proxy through which you can call your shots. Unfortunately, Pholus conjunct the South Node foretells that you may have to train, or to try out, different proxies to issue instructions that will get the result that your professional work tasks demand.  

SAGITTARIUS – Identify the deadline dates of credit card balance transfer deals that you have made to ensure that you will not owe any money when the annual percentage rate on the debt increases from 0.00% to 16.99% or higher. Pholus conjunct the South Node warns that compound debt will fill your life with the methane of economic chaos if you neglect fundamental personal financial responsibilities.  

CAPRICORN – If you plan to enter the outdoor elements in cold weather, Pholus conjunct the South Node advises you to wear sufficient clothing to ward off random chills & stealthy viruses. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap before leaving the bathroom & as frequently as you can. Diligently maintain positive hygiene.  

AQUARIUS – Some of the new professional colleagues with whom you share office space maintain poor, dirty habits regarding food, drink & their health, including yawning, sneezing & coughing without covering their mouths. Pholus conjunct the South Node suggest that criticizing such new professional colleagues may cause more problems than it solves. If you can, close the door to your office as you complain to your office manager.  

PISCES – Alarming as it may be, Pholus conjunct the South Node declares that the self-destruction of a professional associate is either unconsciously or consciously willful and, sadly, inexorable. This individual will pull you or anybody else around them down with them. Do not try to help them – you will get hurt. Whether one incarcerates or confines them, only a lack of freedom may save their life. Withdraw – physically & emotionally.

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

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

ARTICLE #5

Chiron* in Aries squares@ the North Node$ in Cancer from February 12 to April 7, 2020. Older men perpetrate sexual harassment because they believe they can get away with it. Younger men, not “nice boys” attending “good schools” looking to see what they can get away with it, but younger men with hormones yet without prospects, incline towards rape because they don’t care whether they live or die – why should they care about you? Wait until such young men learn that jail is nothing but a living death!  

ARIES – Why do you show such disrespect to the women in your family? Chiron & the North Node scold you. Don’t talk that way to your (mother) (sister) (daughter) (wife)!  

TAURUS – The drunk guy at the bar wants to fight you? So what? Chiron & the North Node agree: That drunk guy doesn’t even know you! That drunk guy hates himself – let him get on with it!  

GEMINI – When certain associates assert, “Money is no object,” they misspeak. Chiron & the North Node assert what they mean, but do not say, is “Your money is no object.” Behave accordingly.  

CANCER – A frustrated, most likely male, boss who lacks self-esteem because he has not succeeded in life treats you with malicious & insulting neglect. Chiron & the North Node implore you not to return the favor. Rise above this envious rodent’s lowly station. Exude nobility.  

LEO – To achieve the certain type of success & fame afforded by the current influence of Chiron & the North Node requires a coarse, lower chakra, zero sum ego. Let someone else debase themselves.  

VIRGO – Suburban high school mothers worry that male high school cliques debase into gang warfare under the current influence of Chiron & the North Node. Do you really want to find out if they are right.? Keep your own teenagers away from the fray.  

LIBRA – A partner or rival challenges a boss. Chiron & the North Node declare that the boss should, and probably will, fire that partner or rival for insubordination. What else is new?  

SCORPIO – Stay away from hostile colleagues & employees. Chiron & the North Node guarantee that such hostile colleagues & employees will encounter disciplinary proceedings as a result of their acerbic temperament. Do not accompany them.  

SAGITTARIUS – Chiron & the North Node denote that you are either compartmentalizing, rather than indulging in, your vice, within creative projects, like film, writing, painting, acting or comedy, or you are drinking booze, drugging frequently, attending porn clubs & hiring escorts. Which is it? Do the former.  

CAPRICORN – Those who are married: Allow the female spouse to address angry children & family members. Chiron & the North Node exacerbate negative male emotions. Dad & son should pool their anger against a common enemy – their son’s school rival basketball team. Let Mom quell counterproductive rage.  

AQUARIUS – Arguing with or telling off a colleague or employee will cause you problems. Chiron & the North Node insist that you demonstrate patience – even with the absolutely oblivious.  

PISCES – Chiron & the North Node remind the sometimes insecure Fish that your relationship with children has nothing to do with money. Make do with what you have – love has no price.

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

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

Jupiter conjuncts* Amycus< in Capricorn from February 22 to April 18, 2020, during which Jupiter conjuncts* Amycus< conjuncts* 2001-BL41> in Capricorn from February 22 to March 29, 2020. Certain astute social observers notice what seems to be an unending plethora of new cops, Bull Market investors & Trumpian Republicans. Such observers ask, “From where did these new species originate?” The answer is simple: The 2016 Presidential Election posited two candidates between two worldviews: Republican Donald Trump versus Democrat Hilary Rodham Clinton. The election of Donald Trump underwrote the attitudes & conditions which allowed such types to thrive. The plethora of such types therefore celebrate, champion & assert their primacy & dominance both proactively & in the presence of a challenge with a cocky attitude of jocular malice.  

ARIES – Whether in the casino or in the bar or in the club or even at the office at work, whether advertising or institutional finance or even certain law firms, certain bosses & many players (more so now than usual) say they are the boss & they deserve to be the boss & you should acknowledge that they are & deserve to be your boss! Whether they deserve it or not, 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus recommend that you let it all pass. All will talk but only some will walk their talk. Bide thy time.  

TAURUS – A lot of new-to-the-force police officers seek to catch the bad guys in bad-ass Hollywood fashion. 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus signify that many will now go too far & eliminate themselves from their future action series. But don’t worry – beware the second generation!  

GEMINI – Young, new hot-shot stock brokers flash like day traders from back in the day, but without their muscle memory, skill set or brains. 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus augur a significant amount of crashes & burns. Keep a close eye on those who survive.  

CANCER – Whether you are a single woman looking for a man or a professional looking for an experienced business partner, 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus will bring you into contact with way too many partners who tell you that they know so much more than you. Well, excuse me! You can only tolerate a very small number of high-flying grandstanders. Tolerate only those who put out & put up big numbers & real victories.  

LEO – You look at your new crop of rookie professional employees to see the cockiest, loudest group of young men that you have encountered in a long time. Of course, you were cocky, too – but, then again, as 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus now note, you also survived. Time will tell.  

VIRGO – Athletes, student athletes, parents of student athletes: Interminable unlimited alpha male extravaganza! “I don’t think you can beat me at anything.” Wow! Well, withhold your dazzle. Right now, 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus insist, “This is all talk.” Round Two comes next – let’s see who survives.  

LIBRA – Certain newly elected or newly appointed political officials talk very confident games in the beginning, but 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus promise that many of them will not survive. Some will quit; some will be forced to resign; some will be arrested. The rest? Some of them will prove dangerous in the long run. Make no predictions. Pay close attention to each one within the crew.  

SCORPIO – Tone down the satirical, sarcastic cartoonish character actor or actress voice with everybody whom you meet. You already have a reputation as somebody with attitude & gruff, sharp & harsh speech – 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus state that you need not prove it. Let those who don’t know you but like your persona emulate you. Let those who don’t know you but dislike your persona walk away, saying, “Seems totally normal to me.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Everybody likes the ride of the Bull Market – until the conductor of the train comes to collect the long overdue fee. 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus remind you that certain frontrunning stocks always pepper the perennials – but how can you locate them? Talk with your broker. Listen to those who are awake & do their research. Eschew those drunk with a mediocre & shallow prosperity.  

CAPRICORN – You lead your own private rat pack, cocky, wealthy, in charge of the bar & the bartender! 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus note that everybody wants to get into your gang. Be choosy. It pays to be exclusive!  

AQUARIUS – For whatever reason, some of the guys in the office are loud – they are making a killing in the market, they love Trump, one of them got laid – these guys are loud! Really loud! Did I say loud? 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus confirm, “You said loud, and you are right – they really are loud!” Shut the door. If necessary, barricade yourself in a conference room with whatever work you need. Don’t complain – these guys might get louder!  

PISCES – All the jocular, jovial, roll-with-the-punches new guys on the block make you feel popular as they banter & babble with you at the office, in the gym or in the bar – but don’t be fooled. 2001-BL41, Jupiter & Amycus declare that these new players are casing you out. Elicit their more specific & personally held opinions before you assert what you believe.  

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

ARTICLE #7

Jupiter transits Capricorn
from December 3, 2019 to December 19, 2020.

Sometimes, great leaders are assigned their destiny, while, at others, great leaders seize it.

Inspector General of New Spain José de Gálvez already endured righteous rage when he sent Franciscan priest Father Junípero Serra to found new missions in Alta California in 1768. After the Viceroy of New Spain, Carlos Francisco de Croix, expelled all Jesuits within Mexico & exiled them through the Port of Veracruz, the Spanish military took over, then mismanaged, the Baja California missions while gambling incessantly, while precious resources, including food, dwindled. Father Serra immediately realized that he now bore not only the duties of church & state but also the impoverished souls of the Baja Californian Indians as he sought to expand the chain of Spanish missions to Alta California – attempts which manifested in both the cities of San Diego & San Francisco, which both succeeded.

Conversely, by 1903, Andrew Carnegie, richest man of the world, could do whatever he wanted. Carnegie by built one of the first "skyscrapers" in Midtown Manhattan to house “The Engineers Club.” The Engineers Club boasted membership of Carnegie, Herbert Hoover, Thomas Edison, Charles Lindbergh, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Henry Clay Frick, H.H. Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla, all men of their own free will who made the U.S.A. an industrial superpower destined to dominate the world.

Provocatively, in his novel Ragtime, E.L. Doctorow claimed that certain American industrialists contemplated esoteric spiritual responsibilities. J.P. Morgan, who shows Henry Ford an original handwritten copy of an early, seminal Rosicrucian document, The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosencurtz in his library, explains, “These great and good men promulgated the idea of an ongoing, beneficent magic available to certain men of every age for the collective use of mankind” – men including, as J.P. asserted to Ford specifically, him and Ford.

“As a youth, I was faced with an awful crisis in my mental life when it came over me that I had no call to know what I knew,” Ford replied. “I happened to pick up a little book. It was called An Eastern Fakir’s Eternal Wisdom, published by the Franklin Novelty Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. And, in this book, which cost me just twenty-five cents, I found everything I needed to set my mind at rest.

“Reincarnation is the only belief I hold, Mr. Morgan,” Ford concluded. “What you have spent on scholars and traveled around the world to find, I already knew.”  

ARIES – Do you want to test the moral character of your boss? Jupiter in Capricorn challenges you to see how your boss responds when you assert, “Whoever dies with the most toys wins.” Indeed, to that “statement,” your boss has only one truly proper response, “For what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world & to have the next seven generations after him wallow in penury, ignorance & bondage?"

TAURUS – Extremely influential municipal police commissioners William Bratton, leading police departments in Boston, New York & Los Angeles, and John Timoney, leading police departments in Philadelphia & Miami, had already established their legacy when New York City Deputy Police Commissioner Jack Maple upgraded Microsoft Excel with some customized macros to create the customized police surveillance tool CompStat – Jupiter in Capricorn knows that both Bratton & Timoney believe that to consider a personal or professional legacy only cheapens what they do. Therein lies the value of the television crime drama Blue Bloods, which aligns the future, rage, despair & hype of the municipality with the bloodline of the family – this is the world that your children will inherit after you have died.  

GEMINI – Publicly traded companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Google, Facebook & Amazon changed how the world lived & did business by using the public monies of the capital markets to underwrite research & development, manufacturing & sales as it created thousands of new millionaires in the process. President Barack Obama changed the world by forcing through legislation granting healthcare for every American citizen via the mandate of his democratic election by raising taxes, empowering all types of new healthcare enterprises in the process. Prefer either instance as you wish, but Jupiter in Capricorn qualify that all sorts of financiers & government officials wish to use your money in order to further their agendas. Will you expect any profit, or hope to see any of this money back? That’s why you must pay attention – “big thinkers” won’t consult you about their world-changing agendas.  

CANCER – Actor & actress Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward remained married their entire adult life while Paul, grieving, the death of their son Scott who died of prescription drug overdose, started Newman’s Own, a food manufacturer & distributor which donates all of its profits to charitable organizations which, among other ideals, address & tries to heal the root causes that lead to drug abuse. Amazon czar Jeff Bezos negotiated down his divorce settlement with long-time wife Mackenzie Tuttle down from 50% of his $132 billion fortune to 25% after public reports that Bezos cheated on Mackenzie with Los Angeles television news anchor Lauren Sanchez. Jupiter in Capricorn asks, “Wherein lies the difference between these two relationships?” The answer: The priorities of the breadwinner.  

LEO – You watch how ambitious colleagues & employees congratulate themselves upon their extremely hard work & lofty ambitions in the full knowledge that ambitious visionaries & successful inventors ceaselessly write the annals of history. Jupiter in Capricorn states that all you need to do is cite Sinclair Lewis’s reference in his 1929 best-selling novel about an automobile designer & his wife entitled Dodsworth to “the best Chardonnay in Detroit” (How many aristocratic capitalists drink Chardonnay in downtown Detroit today?) as you ask them, point blank, “Dude – isn’t it all just about the money?”  

VIRGO – Athletes: In 1985, the year after the Edmonton Oilers won their first Stanley Cup in 1984, a mere five years after the Oilers joined the National Hockey League from the now defunct World Hockey Association, people say Oiler star center & captain Mark Messier underwent a profound personal transformation. Messier, a native of Edmonton suburb St. Albert, realized how potently his personal destiny & the destiny of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada dovetailed for the future of the city & province. Jupiter in Capricorn now highlights this championship leader of leaders to remind skilled players that, while sports are often an end in themselves, there comes a time when sports become a means to a much more profound end.  

LIBRA – The lethal mistake that political operative Sadie Burke made when she called Louisiana gubernatorial candidate Willie Stark “a sap” in Robert Penn Warren’s All the King’s Men lay in mercilessly informing him that political opponents used Stark for their own selfish political purposes. From that moment on, Stark accepted not just the drink but the entire bottle of booze that Sadie Burke offered before drunkenly unleashing an evangelical sermon of ruthless political populism. – because, as Jupiter in Capricorn duly notes, Willie Stark believed.  

SCORPIO – President Barack Obama succeeded in his mission of capturing & killing Osama Bin Laden. President Jimmy Carter failed in his mission to rescue the hostages in Tehran. While considerable research & military strategizing underwrote both efforts, in both instances, Jupiter in Capricorn reminds you, as a leader & dispenser of strategy in your own mission, that we get one chance to launch certain extremely important endeavors – and you will not get a chance to do it again.  

SAGITTARIUS – Jupiter in Capricorn provides you with a truly enormous budget to carry out a mission of deep personal purpose. As long as you keep that purpose foremost in your mind, it will empower you to spend money from that budget . . . profoundly parsimoniously.  

CAPRICORN – You don’t have to stop living your life or step down from your professional or civic duties to write your biography. Rather, Jupiter in Capricorn will force you to draw upon your personal experience & history to act in the present moment, as you remember your own & other peoples’ words, actions & events under the influence of all sorts of planets, centaur planets, minor planets & asteroids which helped shape the circumstances of the past four decades. Keeping a multi-sectional journal in the form of a historical timeline with contemporary logs, commentary & cross-references will help you not only write a book but also to shape a future for yourself & for others that currently hover shapeless & malleable just below the penumbra of a carefully timed dawn.  

AQUARIUS – Read Pisces. Perelandra, the second book of C.S. Lewis’s Space Trilogy, deploys the planet Venus as the new setting for the second attempt by God – the God of the Old Testament, creator of the Universe – to establish the Garden of Eden so that man & woman can live in eternal primal innocence, without the specter of evil. Jupiter in Capricorn invites the Waterbearer to read, to reread & to contemplate Perelandra as high level management reforms the infrastructure of your professional workplace & industry sector of the next twenty years.  

PISCES – Read Aquarius. You confer with many uniquely brilliant minds about what must be done to reform large-scale infrastructures of different institutions & industries. Listen closely & absorb more than you can express. However, Jupiter in Capricorn nevertheless make it incumbent upon you to speak your mind if you sense that any of these ideas harbor a very significant downside. As the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates proclaimed, “Primum non nocere (First, do no harm).”

ARTICLE #8

Amycus< conjuncts* 2001-BL41> in Capricorn from February 6 to August 7, 2020. The sudden success of many men may give those individuals license to puff out their chest & to spew invective & sarcasm from the sides of their mouths. However, that sudden success overstates grossly overstates the success of many of those men. Many will inevitably be cut down to size, but not anytime soon. Beware the road rage of the pompous jaywalker!  

ARIES – Whether in the casino or in the bar or in the club or even at the office at work, whether advertising or institutional finance or even certain law firms, certain bosses & many players, almost all men, assert alpha male dominance over their entire general environment. Amycus & 2001-BL41 declare that many, but not all, will look stupid, forever, by year’s end. That said, bide your time, lay low. . . and prepare for a long year.  

TAURUS – Certain cops overstate their bad-to-the-bone intrepid courage – but Amycus & 2001-BL41 qualify that many do not. This is not a television show. Be guided accordingly.  

GEMINI – Young, new hot-shot stock brokers will talk over each other in order to get your attention. Amycus & 2001-BL41 note that the real hot shot will talk along with everybody else from beginning to end – and, as each of the other hot shots exhaust each other in conflict amongst each other, the real hot shot will repeat, “As I just said and as I have been saying to you for the best six months, this is the best course of action.”  

CANCER – Partners who tell you that they know so much more than you do not seek partners but narcissistic validation. Well, maybe you need practice in relationships & maybe you don’t, but if you see that, ultimately, the endgame of this exchange will end in failure, Amycus & 2001-BL41 recommend that you give it a pass. There are too many of these types of fish in the sea – and they all give you indigestion.  

LEO – Amycus & 2001-BL41 dare you to challenge this new crop of loud, cocky male rookie employees with tasks that you have mastered, “Let’s see if you can even remotely keep up with me.” Speak their language for best results amongst those within the group who harbor substance.  

VIRGO – Athletes, student athletes, parents of student athletes: When it comes to alpha males amongst alpha males, followers follow leaders. That being said, until you must identify individuals, Amycus & 2001-BL41 advise you to let things be. Simply notice who leads the parade & why – and identify the “lone wolves.”  

LIBRA – There will inevitably be a shakeout amongst the newly elected or newly appointed political officials, all smug, cocky, confident & uncooperative. Amycus & 2001-BL41 declare that you will know at least one of which ultimately survives when their team identifies the one who can successfully obstruct you.  

SCORPIO – You already have a reputation as somebody with attitude & gruff, sharp & harsh speech. Amycus & 2001-BL41 assert that you do not need to confirm it with everybody. A time & a place come when it is appropriate to tell some misfit that the left shoe does not fit on the right foot, “And you wear your underwear backwards, too.” Save your best lines for the appropriate victim.  

SAGITTARIUS – Investors: You are not looking for outliers. Amycus & 2001-BL41 confirm that if Amazon & Apple perform well enough for the masses, they perform well enough for your 401K. Unless you work with the market professionally, leave the expertise for the experts. Don’t try to prove anything, to others or to yourself, with your own hard-earned money.  

CAPRICORN – You lead your own private rat pack, cocky, wealthy, in charge of the bar & the bartender! However, because you are savvy, Amycus & 2001-BL41 notice that you will allow the interlopers to act as if they are the ones in charge. Identify, then weed out, troublemaking competition.  

AQUARIUS – While some of the new guys in the office are really loud & annoying, none of the loud ones are dangerous. Who is dangerous? Amycus & 2001-BL41 reply, with a smirk, “The ones who listen to, egg on & manipulate . . . the loud ones.” Satanic puppeteers!  

PISCES – The extremely cocky new guys in the professional workplace will not avoid you forever. Be warned: Amycus & 2001-BL41 declare that certain guys are performing reconnaissance – the real brains behind the group will strategize what to do with the information once they receive it. Be very friendly, polite but extremely reserved.

ARTICLE #9

Uranus conjunct* 1996-TR66! in Taurus from April 14, 2019 to May 1, 2021. The bank president addresses all senior officers at the company headquarters, “New types of security & surveillance issues which require a proactive overhaul of shared resources & experienced personnel nevertheless coerce upper management to withhold any public announcement of any plan to implement a radical & widespread change in protocol. Such security & surveillance issues involve national security concerns which we cannot discuss simultaneously with those whose financial interests in our enterprise focus upon our stock price. Regardless, we require privacy to concentrate upon our focus: the need to build an infrastructure to support new security & surveillance protocol for the medium & long-term future.”  

ARIES – Keep the details of your personal & familial finances top secret private. Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 confirms that you have bills, responsibilities & ambitions which require that you devote a large percentage of your money upon paying for expenses – on time. If family members & friends know what your income, savings & responsibilities are, then they know how to use temptation to negotiate with you. Forestall that aggressively, “I don’t have the money – end of story.”  

TAURUS – Because Taurus the Bull has a reputation for, occasionally, falling into one or another different manifestations of “a Scorpio mood,” you know well what it feels like, and do not particularly enjoy the feeling, when the local police looks rather unfavorably upon you. Therefore, in the spirit of speaking power to truth, Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 declares that now is the time for a conservative haircut & homebody mentality. Do not “let it all hang out.”  

GEMINI – Read Leo. Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 denotes that corporate officials will stonewall all journalists & the public at large. Why? Because these corporate officials insist that it is not in the public interest to know. Moreover, do not automatically presume that these corporate officials represent the public’s enemies because they take this stance – in this instance, there may be legitimate reasons why information is confidential & proprietary. Also: Try not to confuse private sector power brokers with the government, particularly the government of Donald Trump & the Trump family. Private sector power brokers are responsible to their shareholders & are not publicly elected officials. Know your boundaries as a citizen.  

CANCER – Ambitious professional associates demand that you commit yourself wholeheartedly to purely professional matters. Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 reminds you that money & power are involved – not just your own money & power, but all available money & power for which all your peers & associates compete. Certain associates refuse to work with individuals less committed to themselves because those less committed will drag them down. Decide whether you will lead, follow or get out of the way.  

LEO – Read Gemini. Community activists, journalists: CEOs, power brokers & bosses will not answer your questions about certain issues, no matter what, because many of those issues constitute proprietary information about that the company. Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 warns you severely not to adopt the idea, the posture or the belief that you are entitled to such information. Know where that line is drawn in the sand – and accept that it was not the CEOs, power brokers & bosses who actually drew that line in the first place.  

VIRGO – Disciplinary authorities within your industry sector or within your school, as well as law enforcement, announces that the scale of surveillance by regulatory authorities & law enforcement will henceforth be very intense. Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 will demand & enforce compliance. Of course, you realize that not everybody will comply – but those who do not comply will be punished or expelled. Appreciate this flat statement of a blunt reality. Don’t play games with the law.  

LIBRA – Just like Biggie Smalls within the “Intro” of Ready to Die, telling his accomplice that he is going to rob this train, right now – “Is you wit me?” – Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 announces that certain friends of your past & current lives now intend to commit what they perceive to be lucrative crimes as they ask you & many other people in their lives, “Are you in or are you out?” Whatever you choose to do, be prepared to say goodbye . . . to somebody.

SCORPIO – Do not presume that partners cut you out of their lives out of a sense of malice or disloyalty – indeed, Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 confirms that partners may actually be trying to protect you. However, in any event, if these partners assert that they are ending their friendships with you to take their lives in another direction, do not try to convince them otherwise – and don’t try to understand why. It is not about you; it is about them – and they are acting like adults by taking sole responsibility for it.  

SAGITTARIUS –All that you need to do is to stay at work, keep your nose clean. Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 announce to you your schedule for your life. Eat enough vegetables & fruits along with meat & fish at lunch & dinner. Get enough sleep every night – even on Thursday when all your colleagues indulge an early weekend. Straight & narrow from nine to five in the professional workplace – then straight home for dinner. No distractions!  

CAPRICORN – Artists, writers, film industry professionals: Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 warns that you are taking a much bigger risk than you realize by changing your style to address a different audience. There is no guarantee that the audience that you now address will be interested in anything that you have to say. Before you commit to this course of action – talk to your most trusted advisors to get their advice about your current moves & your current work, and what they think will happen in “worst-case scenario” terms (No need to go over “success story scenarios” because your truest friends will hope that they are wrong & you are right). . . and what they really think you should do about all of this.  

AQUARIUS – A recent change in location in where you work, or your recent purchase of property or signing a new lease in a different neighborhood or city, truly liberates you from negative past associations – but Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 does not at all suggest that such negative past associations will just go away of their own accord. You don’t need to be too aggressive – but you do need to be firm. Just assert, “I’m changing my life. Good luck to you.”  

PISCES – When at home & in your neighborhood, Uranus conjunct 1996-TR66 confirms that you need to be who you are on your own terms. You do not need to impress anybody because there is nobody to impress. If none of your neighbors laugh at your jokes because they don’t understand them, tell the same jokes to a different group of neighbors. You are who you are & that is how it is going to be. Turn off the telephone & shut down your home email to prevent workplace zombies from invading your natural environment. Do whatever you want – with whomever you want to do it! Or do absolutely nothing!

ARTICLE #10

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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