Jupiter, which turns to Direct Motion* on October 19, 2021, completes its transit of Aquarius on December 28, 2021. When the fourth line of I Ching hexagram 40, Hsieh (Deliverance), says, “Deliver yourself from your great toe,” what does it mean? The great toe is the lazy ego, large & inert, around which gather sycophants, akin to a small clique of mediocre personalities who coalesce when nothing is going on. When something happens, the clique is never part of it, but is scheming to buy tickets to it, as they are never near the center of the action. This is the principle of mediocrity, which, according to advertising mogul David Ogilvy, knows nothing above itself. All the members of the clique look upon each other with the distaste of the familiarity of contempt, reminding us why Groucho Marx would never join a club which would have him as a member. However, inevitably, one in such a clique realizes that he or she is getting nowhere, and changes. Ceasing to follow the path of no resistance, one becomes like the philosopher-king in Plato’s Cave, no longer welcome amongst lazy people sitting in the dark interpreting shadows on the wall.  

ARIES – Amongst a clique of underachievers, people have only so much bandwidth to bestow attention upon another person – and one individual invariably wants all of it. Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius states that if you stay in that clique, you will never learn anything. David Bowie on “Modern Love” off Let’s Dance, “I know when to go out. I know when to stay in. Get things done – ”  

TAURUS – An extremely aggressive jock in the gym, at the bar or in your home demands absolute control of the TV remote control, which yields extremely loud volume no matter what is actually shown on TV. Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius posits that you can get angry or you can get out of there. Find a spiritual total environment to elevate your consciousness. Magnetize your personage to the enlightened.  

GEMINI – Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius asks, “Has the Internet expanded intellectual discourse (amongst all people) (the uneducated) (the educated)? Has the Internet made people more materialistic, and, by extension, less intellectual?” One’s response, invariably, may reflect one’s financial interest – but the discussion may nevertheless be necessary.  

CANCER – Align yourself with a like-minded lover & pull out a Ouija board. Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius orchestrates an eerily amiable environment to assemble the cocktail party of the dead. You can make it an all-family affair if you want to communicate with deceased parents, or you may be more ambitious – former Canadian Prime Minister William Lyons Mackenzie King & former Mexican President Francisco I. Madero both consulted the Ouija board & spiritual mediums while in office.  

LEO – Salespeople: When is an adversary an enemy & when is an adversary a partner? Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius replies: An enemy wishes to win an argument. A partner is working with you to win . . . new clients.  

VIRGO – You will only need to talk at work if you need to insult a verbose & presumptuous jerk. Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius declares that silence reigns when everybody is busy with worthwhile tasks – which points you to the solution involving that overly garrulous individual.  

LIBRA – Read Sagittarius. Public speakers: Speaking publicly for political reasons is financially & spiritually expensive, as you are trying to pique the entrenched gravity of fixed public opinion to erode, to collapse, to jettison & to reform. Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius states that to speak publicly to entertain, whether as a comedian or a poet, is ultimately easier & more fun – especially if people are inclined to like you. (If you try too hard, it becomes clear . . . that you want something.)  

SCORPIO – Municipal power brokers: You are disinclined to allow political enemies to celebrate how great they are with those of their own kind – but should you be a jerk? Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius reminds you that negativity wears on the public. Contribute significant amounts of time & money to meaningful local causes & independent ethnic diasporas. Edify & empower those gathered in the room.  

SAGITTARIUS – Read Libra. Performers: Nobody said that you weren’t funny as a stand-up comic – but a lot of people commented that your comedy was “politically misplaced.” You want to know, “When did comedy get so polarized?” Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius declares that you ask the wrong question, “When did everything get so political?” Why don’t you get yourself an acoustic guitar & do a karaoke, Kumbaya-type thing?  

CAPRICORN – Political enemies will do all they can to insult you from very close proximity in public. Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius comments appropriately that it therefore behooves you to prevent random individuals from approaching you. Maintain an appreciable distance from everybody in the public so that it always seems like you are on television.  

AQUARIUS – Power brokers who resent your political stance seek to challenge you in public – but Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius states that such power brokers will keep their distance if you choose to associate publicly with intellectual mavericks as fiercely independent as yourself.  

PISCES – Return to the workplace with a vengeance! Direct Motion Jupiter in late Aquarius provides you with multiple deadlines of arduous scale. Few people possess the skill necessary to execute these tasks. Ask for what you want before you start. Consider other options if what you demand is not immediately forthcoming. Muster the courage to negotiate the best price.

* 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 in Aquarius sextiles@ Chiron* in Aries
from October 20 to December 28, 2021.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mars transits Libra
from September 14 to October 29, 2021.

With so many outer planets – Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn – joining Mercury as it stations from Retrograde to Direct Motion1, the experience of time will not only slow down, but, in fact, increase in gravity. Really, under such aspects, there is no better time to watch a World Series baseball game! The suspense can be maddening!

However, what happens if somebody is doing something important rather than leisurely – such as participating in a high-profile trial or law enforcement investigation? Just like as in any sport, but most like tennis or chess, one side makes their best play, then the other side responds – back & forth, back & forth.

Then, decisive, powerful, potent, game-winning moves based upon written, photographic or videotaped evidence happen as Pluto in Capricorn squares2, and as Jupiter in Aquarius, stationing from Retrograde to Direct Motion1, trines3, Elatus$ conjunct4 Mars conjunct4 the Sun in Libra from October 16 to 19, 2021 – as Mercury in Libra also stations from Retrograde to Direct Motion1. The adversary responds with either an equally brilliant volley – or overreacts with spiteful vengeance & needless destruction.  

ARIES – Mars in Libra denotes that the best that you can do is play your best game against your opponent. Nobody controls the outcome – the outcome occurs as the result of the actions by the participants in the game. Let the chips fall where they may.  

TAURUS – You can’t control your teammates’ actions. Although the eventual outcome is a team effort, Mars in Libra states that all you can control is yourself. And the same is true of your boss. As Allen Iverson might say, “Practice is over – this is the game.”  

GEMINI – You want to get the one you love? You want to win the election? You want to win the World Series? Well, Mars in Libra says that you will now learn why posers are losers. Now is the time to do the right thing the right way. Right now, be willing to give your all to win the championship.  

CANCER – Herculean effort to actualize your will to power! Mars in Libra says, “Swing the bat to hit the ball – then run like Hell!” Give everything you’ve got in order to win – or die trying.  

LEO – Trial lawyers: Mars in Libra knows that Leo the Lion realizes well what question will turn the judge & the jury to your side once & for all. Practice the sequence of your interrogation of this key witness so that this question manifests exactly at your interrogation’s climax.  

VIRGO – Parents: Enforce an early curfew early in the school year. Keep the TV off as you sequester the remote control. Encourage everybody to study & to work in one room – and Mars in Libra adds, “Including yourself.” Indeed, your upcoming deadlines are massive. Make your family the office team that does not exist anywhere in the United States.  

LIBRA – Politicians: If you are not out in front of the public espousing your deeply held political ideals, then Mars in Libra complains that you might as well be committing crimes in the background. The masses need inspiration & direction – and they need it from you now!  

SCORPIO – Undeclared enemies tell lies either about you or your city, state, province or country. If these lies are against you, shrug them off, “I’ve heard all of these before.” However, if these lies are about your city, state, province or country, then Mars in Libra impels you to call these people liars. Stand up for your homeland & be counted.  

SAGITTARIUS – Comedians: Political allies are not in the mood for jokes. If speaking in public, Mars in Libra urges you to speak seriously about important ideals for the greater good. Entertain later. Now is the time to focus upon the benefit of all!  

CAPRICORN – You show your true colors under the current influence of Mars in Libra. Nothing & nobody can change that.  

AQUARIUS – The accolades you now receive confuse you, “I said & I did nothing!” Mars in Libra insists that that does not matter. You said & did a lot for many, many, many years. Now, you have finally advanced your long-held goals . . . simply because you restrained yourself. The winner & still champion!  

PISCES – It is ultimately your decision whether or not to sign the contract. Mars in Libra denotes that anybody who tries to induce you into signing or not signing holds an inappropriate interest in something which is strictly your business. Don’t let anybody influence you. Decide, act, then move on – and live with it.

$ Elatus, a centaur planet that traverses the orbits of Saturn & Uranus, was discovered in October 1999 & named in June 2003. Elatus, along with Chiron, was injured by the same poisoned arrow of Hercules when an entire tribe of centaurs attacked Hercules for drinking the communal wine of the tribe while the centaur Pholus cooked & served Hercules dinner. For information on how to interpret Elatus, formerly 1999-UG5, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #4

Asbolus< conjuncts* Bienor> in Gemini
from July 29, 2021 to July 15, 2022.

The literary premise, “character is fate,” can make a story either boring & predictable or disturbing & surreal. Examine, for example, the eponymous male siblings of Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s crowning masterpiece The Brothers Karamazov. The oldest brother, Dmitri: A hothead. On trial for murder. You know he did it. Third brother of four, Alyosha: Kicked out of the seminary for his naïveté. The good son, the protagonist, who gives the speech at the novel’s end to secure Dostoyevsky’s legacy as the author of his country & the century. The youngest brother, Smerdyakov: What a name! A deformed troll. Ostensibly without guilt, merely physically repulsive.

But the second oldest brother, Ivan! The writer. The thinker. The published author who penned the darkest prose ever written within prose, The Grand Inquisitor, about the undisputed heavy of one of history’s foremost atrocities, The Spanish Inquisition. The second death sentence of the manifest savior Jesus Christ! A tract so coldly shrewd that it drives the writer himself mad. Fyodor Dostoyevsky, convicted felon released from Siberia, depicting Ivan Karamazov, celebrated writer & philosopher, whose own written words entrap him in an endless tunnel of hauntingly dark mirrors with incisive flashes of horrifying, clarifying light.  

ARIES – Cain talked back to God, when God asked him a direct question, “Where is your brother?” Asbolus & Bienor reinforce that God does not tolerate humans who talk back. Answer all authority figures with respect.  

TAURUS – If you owe somebody money, don’t talk smack – pay them. If somebody who owes you money talks smack to you, Asbolus & Bienor advise you to get a cop, to hire a lawyer or to contact your credit card company to help you get your money. If that does not work, inform local businesses that such & such is a deadbeat. Polaroid mugshots of homeless shoplifters above the cashier at Seven Eleven!  

GEMINI – Cops, federal law enforcement agents: If one watches enough Sixties’ & Seventies’ American television, the idea of “police partners” – Dragnet, with Jack Webb & Harry Morgan as Detectives Joe Friday & Bill Gannon; I Spy, with Robert Culp & Bill Cosby as Kelly Robinson & Alexander Scott; Adam-12, with Martin Milner & Kent McCord as Pete Malloy & Jim Reed – seems benign, predictable & reassuring, if sometimes quirky (to add some comic relief). However, with the pressure put on U.S. law enforcement in the 21st century, Asbolus & Bienor sometimes make you more paranoid about who is riding in your car than anything that happens outside of it. Be very judicious about making official complaints to headquarters – you can choose your spouse, but you can’t choose your partner.  

CANCER – Bosses aren’t trying to announce that a hostile & potentially violent crime or major theft happened recently around your workplace or amongst your employer’s employees, but they also have not done that much to dispel the dark cloud of suspicion that surrounds everybody who works there. Asbolus & Bienor intuit that the whole thing has the feel of a knife fight in an alleyway. Decide once & for all if you are working with or for too many callous people. If so, plan your next move.  

LEO – Insufferable clients who are never satisfied make you & others sick when you all show up at work. Asbolus & Bienor say that there is no law which says that your company must take their money. If your bosses object to this attitude, maybe it is time that you service other clients working for other bosses.  

VIRGO – Read Scorpio. A boss who has cheated you has met their match. Asbolus & Bienor comment that it is only natural that they hate each other – they are both looking in the mirror. May they live unhappily ever after. As for yourself, fly under the evil radar.  

LIBRA – Lawyers, judges, jury members: Whether a civil or criminal action, whether District or Appellate, when the plaintiffs & defendants hate each other’s guts, there can be no happy verdict. Asbolus & Bienor state that, in such a situation, the best that any participant can do is quell open rage – which it is not in everybody’s interest to do.  

SCORPIO – Read Virgo. The business partners who double-crossed you double-crossed each other. Should you get involved & get double the revenge? Asbolus & Bienor smirk as they reply, “Remember the Mexican standoff at the end of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs? Therefore . . . uh, no.” (Pablo Tabor at the climax of Robert Stone’s A Flag for Sunrise, “I hate when people turn you around. It messes you up so bad. You just go round & round.”)  

SAGITTARIUS – John Lennon envied, spited & hated Paul McCartney – and vice versa. Rumors declared Paul dead in 1965 while Mark David Chapman assassinated John on December 8, 1980. (“Helter Skelter” off The White Album, “When I get to the bottom, I get back to the top of the slide.”) Paul Simon envied, spited & hated Art Garfunkel– and vice versa. (“Like a bridge over troubled water.”) Conversely, Sagittarian Archers Jim Morrison & Jimi Hendrix both died young, decadent, bacchanal deaths. (“The End” from The Doors, “Weird scenes inside the gold mine – ride the highway west, baby.”) (Jimi singing Gemini the Twin Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” from Electric Ladyland.) Asbolus & Bienor conclude, “Enough said.” (“I’ve got blisters on my fingers!”)  

CAPRICORN – The Dalton Gang were western lawmen turned rogue who robbed trains at gunpoint. When honest lawmen killed them to capture them, journalists photographed their filthy untreated corpses leaning against a wooden wall of a log cabin on a dirt floor. Asbolus & Bienor declare the clear moral: The wages of sin are death.  

AQUARIUS – Was Peter Missing & the Missing Foundation responsible, as network television news reported, for the 1988 Tompkins Square Park Riot in New York City’s Lower East Side? Hard to say. Asbolus & Bienor do say one thing in Missing’s behalf: Peter Missing was a local. Peter Missing lived & played his music in NYC’s LES. His people tagged Alphabet City with the date, “1933,” with the symbolic glyph of the upside-down martini glass, with the slogan, “The Party’s Over.” Peter Missing was no interloping media whore.

PISCES – Have children or teenagers in your family or extended family done something evil? Consider: The Tsarnaev brothers scarred Copley Square & the history of the Boston Marathon with their debased violence. The Reid brothers exploited North, South & West Philadelphia as much as the heroin dealers in Kensington with their exploitative drug trafficking. Asbolus & Bienor now exhort you to consider the legacies of the Tsarnaev family in Boston & the Reid family, uprooted from Philadelphia as father Andy now coaches the Kansas City Chiefs. You maintain a certain small degree of responsibility for how such family members turned out – but, eventually, you must draw a line.

< 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.  

> Bienor, a centaur planet that traverses from just outside the orbit of Saturn just across the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in August 2000 & named in January 2004. Theseus, fighting for the Lapiths against the Centaurs to avenge the honor of Pirithous's bride Hippodamia, killed Bienor by jumping on his back, pulling his hair, and smashing his mouth while it spouted violent threats. For information on how to interpret Bienor, formerly 2000-QC243, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #5

Bienor< conjuncts@ 1996-TL66> in Gemini from May 4, 2021 to May 21, 2022. Who could forget the decade-long litany of negotiations over the budget between President Barack Obama & Congress, as Democratic Vice-President Joe Biden sat down with Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in meetings where, after intense negotiations, they decided how to turn on the lights again on that business called America? During such far-off, golden days, Democrats & Republicans felt comfortable blaming each other – now, after, and partially as a result of, President Donald J. Trump, Democrats blame the police & vandalize the cities while Republicans blame the government & vandalize vested government buildings on both the state & federal levels.  

ARIES – Many people refuse to believe that God exists as a willful, potent, manifest force to the degree where He could develop & distribute COVID-19 through all the nations of the world – and, if God is too damned weak & lame to do it, it must be those satanically omnipotent (Democrats) (Republicans) (godless Communist Chinese)! Careful! Bienor & 1996-TL66 strongly warn you, “Do not blame those whom you will desperately need in order to escape the mess wherein you now suffer. “Solid Rock” – the name of the band is Dire Straits, “When you point your finger cause your plan fell through, you got three more fingers pointing back at you.”  

TAURUS – The power broker to whom you have been addressing your intellectual arguments refuses to acknowledge that you have made your point. You may feel frustrated & bitter, but Bienor & 1996-TL66 agree that you spoke clear English. Swagger so as to communicate, “When the time comes, I can & will return to say, ‘I told you so!’”  

GEMINI – Bosses & colleagues always left for you the task of negotiating the budget by which all your colleagues & employees did business. Because you successfully devised a budget wherein everybody survived within a razor’s edge, you got no credit & all blame, “What a draconian cheapskate!” Now – surprise! – the same old situation recurs. You pull the rabbit out of the hat once again – and Bienor & 1996-TL66 assigns the exact same blame! Apologize sarcastically & dismissively, “Try as I may, I couldn’t leave any of you, let alone all of you, out in the cold. But I’ll keep trying!”  

CANCER – Nobody can be blamed for stealing from the mailroom or within the company’s offices because the offices have been closed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine. But somebody is to blame! Indeed, Bienor & 1996-TL66 notice that the familiarity of your contempt for your work colleagues prevents you from sleeping. Why do you need these people? Can’t you learn to tolerate your ugly, stupid, vicious self? Detach yourself as much as you can from this loser crew so that you don’t wind up hating all of humanity – including yourself.  

LEO – You really thought that the client from Hell had fired you & your company. However, Bienor &1996-TL66 indicate that this client could not find anybody else in the marketplace could do such a good job for such a small profit margin at such an absurdly parsimonious price. So: Why do clients continue to complain? Why do you & your company continue to work for them?  

VIRGO – An old boss who cheated you & your peers years ago in order to step over all of you to win at “Monarch of the Hill” returns. Bienor & 1996-TL66 are amazed – this creep has come back not only to gloat but in fact to reassert their hegemony. Revamp your morals & ethics so that you may compete with much more unrestrained, naked aggression.  

LIBRA – Read Scorpio. A bad legal decision of several years ago demonstrates how wrong it was as a subsequent misdeed mirrors its predecessor in eerie fashion. Bienor & 1996-TL66 now demand that you work to overturn this decision & this precedent . . . come what may.  

SCORPIO – Read Libra. You plan to pursue this extraordinarily bitter litigation yet again not only because of how much financially it is worth to you but also as a matter of principle. Then again, you’re a masochist – you live for the sensation of delivering unto others the pain that they mad you suffer. But this your personal thrill –Bienor & 1996-TL66 emphasize, your feelings & predilections clearly to the contrary, that this is not a gladiator blood sport. You really need a lawyer who will not allow himself or herself to get personally involved. Indeed, you need a lawyer motivated to engage in the seamless practice of the law itself.  

SAGITTARIUS – You knew right from wrong back then & who represented which. Now, the friends you chose choose your fate. Those friends who want you to see the light will demand that you do the hard work to reform your character & to rehabilitate your eternal soul. Those “friends” who chose you an evil fate refuse to leave. Bienor & 1996-TL66 present you with the complete scorecard for your perusal & ongoing reference. Nothing is going to change. Good luck.  

CAPRICORN – Merchants, home owners: Equip your home & property with sufficient surveillance cameras, guard dogs & recording equipment to discourage or to catch burglars & thieves – in some cases, the burglars & thieves who had victimized you several years ago. Bienor & 1996-TL66 do not suggest that you fool yourself – these burglars & thieves envy you & see you as their target. Prepare to defend yourself against their personally motivated perfidy.  

AQUARIUS – A so-called friend or acquaintance is really a bitterly ruthless competitor who would rather destroy somebody else rather than lose. Emotional pain, humiliation, rubbing one’s opponent’s face in the dirt – Bienor & 1996-TL66 confirm that you are dealing with one nasty sneak. For the moment, withdraw. Let deceitful competitors show all their true colors in full & over time.  

PISCES – With this child, with other children in your family in the past & with children in your own nuclear family growing up, you have experienced this same win-at-all-costs, bitter, hostile & inhuman competitiveness, complete with manipulation, cheating, allies turning to rivals and rivals morphing into peers. Bienor & 1996-TL66 strongly advise you to admonish this child, “It is only just a game – why would you let such stupid juvenile competition over this silly game poison the inherent beauty of your kind & generous soul?”  

< Bienor, a centaur planet that traverses from just outside the orbit of Saturn just across the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in August 2000 & named in January 2004. Theseus, fighting for the Lapiths against the Centaurs to avenge the honor of Pirithous's bride Hippodamia, killed Bienor by jumping on his back, pulling his hair, and smashing his mouth while it spouted violent threats. For information on how to interpret Bienor, formerly 2000-QC243, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

> 1996-TL66 is an unnamed scattered-disk object (SDO) transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on October 9, 1996. SDOs are far more remote in space than even Varuna or Pluto, the outermost planets in our current solar system; 1996-TL66, an SDO, is also a TNO because, at perihelion, it hovers around the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 1996-TL66, note reference to Jonathan Dunn below.

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

ARTICLE #6

Chiron* in Aries transits Retrograde Motion@ from July 15 to December 20, 2021. Young men in the United States of America, not unlike young men in Canada & Mexico, confront a spiritual crisis. They are willing to die, and they are willing to kill – for a worthwhile ideal. Because no worthwhile ideal exists, they are still willing to die, but they really want to kill – really, to them, a life, a job, a society without ideals is worthless. Because they do not forgive, when they transgress, they are not forgiven – leading many of them to kill, then to die. But the real tragedy occurs when one presents the young men with a false ideal, which then serves to seduce them, and lead them in concert.  

ARIES – Disregard news. Disregard other people, especially those who talk incessantly about themselves. Retrograde Chiron recommends that you catalogue what your environment provides for you: A park, a baseball diamond, a computer, a piano. Use your body amongst what the environment provides so that you can engage that place where you are.  

TAURUS – The masks of COVID-19 come off the faces of the people. Retrograde Chiron instructs you to look hard at those faces. Notice the changes.  

GEMINI – Self-respect is not a complex intellectual paradigm. Retrograde Chiron advises that you keep it simple. As Jordan Peterson proclaims, “Treat yourself as if you were someone that you are responsible for helping.”  

CANCER – If a boss, your employer or your country violates your moral & ethical principles, then Retrograde Chiron confirms that you cannot work for or honor them, because that would make you miserable. However, storm out of no rooms. Disengage with self-control.  

LEO – You judged another school, another city or another country before you decided to apply to that school, to move to somewhere else, to solicit citizenship. Retrograde Chiron responds that you did not expect them to judge you.  

VIRGO – Some people said, “Fight fire with fire.” Others said, “An eye for an eye.” But Retrograde Chiron responds, “MLK never said that – and neither did Gandhi or Mandela.” Word.

LIBRA – Your spouse or business partner annoys you. Retrograde Chiron advises you to tell them, “You assert yourself but you do not believe in yourself. You use force like an animal because you fail to think & to feel like a human.” Walk away so that they may consider your words.  

SCORPIO – Exemplary yet modest new employees invest no ego in tasks. Retrograde Chiron advises you to discuss Zen spirituality with them, “This is not about the fact that you did that – this is about the experience of getting this done.”  

SAGITTARIUS – When Jack Kerouac was writing On the Road throughout the early Fifties, Jack did not know that the reason why he was writing On the Road was to write On the Road – not to finish it. Retrograde Chiron acknowledges that when Jack Kerouac finished On the Road, it effectively killed him. (“It’s Only Music” from Grace Slick’s Manhole, “Well, I know we'll never get that song quite right – but still we're singing!”  

CAPRICORN – Retrograde Chiron says that if the young men in the family weren’t angry, they’d be worthless. Show their anger more respect.  

AQUARIUS – The world suffers from a lack of respect. Retrograde Chiron asks, “Do you remember how ashamed you were when your mother or another authority figure asked you, ‘Who do you think you are?’” If you asked that of disrespectful people today, who knows how they might reply? But, in some cases, it is worth a try.  

PISCES – First, you need a reason to sell your time & energy to get a job for money. When you get that money, you need a reason to offer that money in exchange for something in order to say, “This is worth my time & effort.” Conversely, Retrograde Chiron posits, “Nothing is worth my time & effort except to have this money itself for that moment when I need it to survive.” Philosophize!

* 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.

ARTICLE #7

Pholus< conjuncts* 2002-GZ32> in Capricorn from December 13, 2020 to November 25, 2022. One spy or one saboteur cannot infiltrate one large-scale organization with over one thousand members, or one city neighborhood over one large section of its already irregularly shaped grid. The best that that spy or saboteur can do is to isolate, vandalize, pollute & render damaged is that part of the institution upon which everybody in the institution refers, or that part of that city’s neighborhood through which everybody eventually must travel – then to harness, to direct & to accelerate the long-term backward regression.  

ARIES – Because the mayor is in some gangster’s pocket, the gangster will not let you, or any other citizen, talk to the mayor. Should you talk to the gangster? Not that the gangster cares – but if the gangster can solve your problem, then Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn suggest that the gangster might come to the conclusion that you will have no reason to talk to anybody else in city government – particularly about that gangster. Consider the potential consequences.  

TAURUS – As a result of the George Floyd protests during the COVID-19 summer of 2020, there are all sorts of crimes that cops cannot directly address, lest they risk violating the rights of the criminal who gives not a damn for the rights of any of their fellow citizens. But, in the end, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn declares that the police still know the law – and those of them that have been around awhile know how to enforce the law in myriad, indirect ways. Do not be discouraged from asking for a policeman’s help.  

GEMINI – You want to buy into certain tech stocks – Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft – but you don’t want to buy a percentage of a share. Worse yet, some of these particular stocks – Google, Amazon especially – do not want to split. What do you do? Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn advise you to buy a quantity of Apple, which does split. Wait for Apple to go up & to split. Wait until you have enough Apple & cash to buy into Google & Amazon, then sell some Apple & buy some Google & some Amazon. If you think, “three years,” think much more. Or invest much more.  

CANCER – Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn denotes that your spouse cannot afford to get sick. Your spouse has already alienated himself or herself & you by the sheer obtuseness of their job, and now risk their health in order to maintain that job. However, once your spouse gets the flu, you can’t take care of him or her & get sick yourself, because if he or she gets COVID-19 . . . Just tell your spouse, “Stop working so hard – and that’s an order!”  

LEO – All that it takes is one employee with COVID-19 or one employee awaiting trial for storming the Capitol to complicate your professional supervisory duties. With that, Dilbert cartoon in mind, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn suggests that the Lion refrain from a sarcastic smile, lest the feds believe you are entertained as they put you under obtuse yet truly arduous pressure.  

VIRGO – Athletes: Stop thinking about some so-called star on another team getting all sorts of special treatment as a result of COVID-19 or burning a tree outside the Capitol Building. Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn emphasizes that you play sports – you throw & catch & shoot balls. What the Hell is so convoluted about that? Stick to business as your opponent is on a conference call on their cell phone with their lawyer, account & local bankruptcy judge.  

LIBRA – Municipal officials, real estate developers: Just because you are restricting access to your property does not mean that citizens will obey you if you try to close off acres of pedestrian throughway to them. Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn insists that you must hire security to patrol all that land from aimless pedestrians, vendors, bicyclists & skateboarders, as well as truly malevolent vandals – and find a way to put it to valuable use in the meantime.  

SCORPIO – Managers: There are so many legal restrictions put upon communications between you & certain employees that there is really nothing for the two of you to discuss professionally. In the end, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn suggests that you just might want to be nice to that individual for a change, “Is your mother’s health improving, my friend?” You can’t control whether or not the individual in question replies in kind or not, “What it to you, you hypocritical satanic creep?” Still, being nice is not going to hurt you here – or anywhere, really, “I wish her all my best.”  

SAGITTARIUS – You seem to have a lot of money in the bank but you are legally required to leave a large percentage of it on hand because of property you own. Indeed, even though, appearances to the contrary, you are cash broke, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn demands that you get some income that you don’t need to report to taxes to make ends meet. Be creative. Act lawfully. Be careful.  

CAPRICORN – “And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile,” David Byrne sings on “Once in a Lifetime” on Talking Heads’ Remain in Light, “And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife – and you may ask yourself, ‘Well . . . how did I get here?’” And, indeed, no sign of the zodiac has seen as many changes as abrupt, total & contradictory as Capricorn the Goat since the early Eighties. Indeed, with all that you know about all that you have done amongst so many people for so many years, Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn notices that the person who scares you the most . . . is yourself.  

AQUARIUS – It goes on behind closed doors in somebody else’s office & you don’t need to know. And that which was discussed in that office here, now, had been discussed in the bullpen amongst the sales staff on the fifteenth floor two weeks ago, which you did not attend, and follows up what local initiatives in Los Angeles & Chicago discussed, to which you were invited & which you did not attend, and about which you do not need to know. Therefore, when you go to sleep tonight, and the office door is closed in your dream of the dream of the truth under the current influence of Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn, you will not need to know . . . and you can go to sleep.  

PISCES – Could have been like a mob flick where the entire Italian extended family eating & drinking & laughing & smoking in tuxedos & night gowns all of a sudden exclaims in whispers & grunts & shouts & screams in terror as the capo beats the skull of one of your best friends with a wooden baseball bat. Could have been like the intro of the show just before the trailer in I Spy where Bill Cosby as Alexander Scott meets Robert Culp’s as Kelly Robinson’s former partner, who is shot by a sniper as Cosby searches their Rio de Janeiro kitchen suite for a corkscrew. “Well,” Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 in Capricorn says, “he’s dead now.” What next? Put away the corkscrew . . . and find out why.  

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

> 2002-GZ32 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on April 13, 2002. The orbit of 2002-GZ32 traverses across the orbit of Uranus and just before the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2002-GZ32, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #8

Uranus in Taurus
transits Retrograde Motion*
from August 19, 2021 to January 19, 2022,
1998-SM165(z) in Taurus
transits Retrograde Motion*
from August 19, 2021 to January 28, 2022,
2002-PN34(y) in Taurus
transits Retrograde Motion*
from August 22, 2021 to January 26, 2022,
Albion(a) in Taurus
transits Retrograde Motion*
from August 13, 2021 to January 21, 2022, and
1996-TR66(b) in Taurus
transits Retrograde Motion*
from August 9, 2021 to January 19, 2022.

The recent ingress of the Pluto Steed 1999-OX3$ into Taurus on May 28, 2021 telegraphs the upcoming perihelion of that same Pluto Steed, 1999-OX3$, between 12 & 13 degrees Taurus on November 4, 2023, almost completing a full transit of the zodiac which commenced as 1999-OX3$ orbited its last perihelion between 14 & 15 degrees Taurus on November 6, 1843. Because a planet at perihelion, or at its closest distance to the Sun, exhibits its purest, most concentrated potency & its clearest, most explicitly defined influence, now is an ideal time for the astrologically sophisticated to ponder the potential & power of the Pluto Steed 1999-OX3$.

Will 1999-OX3$ impel straightforward yet ultimately prosperous entrepreneurial industry, as it did under the auspices of Colorado Governor Job Adams Cooper, born under the 1843 OX3$ perihelion, within Denver during the 1880s & 1890s?

Will 1999-OX3$ erupt in bitter & draconian physical punishment & torture, as it did during the Year of the Lash in 1843 & 1844 amongst the slave plantations in Matanzas, Cuba, after the female slave Carlota, from the Kingdom of Benin in modern-day Nigeria, executed a scorched earth slave rebellion during the 1843 OX3$ perihelion?

Will 1999-OX3$ strategize conquest, as Sir Harry Holdsworth Rawson, born just previous to the 1843 OX3$ perihelion on November 4, 1843, did, when he overtook the ancient kingdom of Benin in modern-day Nigeria in February 1897, in retaliation for the ambush of a trade mission sent to Benin by the Brits by the Oba, or King, of the ancient kingdom, who deeply mistrusted British imperialist protocol?  

ARIES – The powers that be now chomp at the bit, like bulls or horses herded in a corral, as they anticipate the financial gains of the next wave of high technology, artificial intelligence & cannabis proliferation. However, before you invest your money in order to make a killing, Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, advise you to consider whether the companies in which you will be making an investment value wealth over human life – because there may come a time very soon where humans put their lives on the line to object to how such companies make their money. Define your ethical & moral paradigm proactively.  

TAURUS – You have spent several years now developing your skills, honing your craft & building the protocol of your business, all based on a tightly held personal purpose. Keeping that in mind, Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, remind the Bull that the more your ability, your business & your company penetrate the workaday world, the less direct control you will exert when circumstances contrary to your value system not only develop but in fact begin to dominate. Indeed, the more you devote yourself to your business, the less your life is your own. The larger your business grows, the less you will be able to control it.  

GEMINI – Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, will force you to live & to think exclusively within your business model. It you are an accountant, you will live in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. If you are a human resources representative, the company’s org charts & floor plans will form an afterimage on your brain. If you are an art gallery owner, you will often see thousands of pieces of artwork a day. What you will not see as often, to your detriment, are the people represented by all these abstractions, and how what you do affects them. Don’t get so involved with the nomenclature & memorabilia that you forget that you make people happy, sad . . . or desperate.  

CANCER – Choose allies who have identified, then espouse & act upon, their principles. Cooperate with allies who explicitly share financial & economic self-interest. However, Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, urge you to distance & to detach yourself from allies who tend to judge other people, sometimes harshly, based upon their closely held criteria. First, remember that we as humans tend to judge others according to their actions while we judge ourselves according to our ideals. More importantly, understand that the most effective judges are neutral in opinion & in temperament as a rule. Those who incline to judge others are not neutral. Then, when situations become aggravated, extreme or catastrophic, those inclined to judge others become more severe at the onset – particularly regarding biases that had previously been latent & benign. Associate with allies who do not give expression to any such kneejerk sentiments – particularly when such kneejerk sentiments can manifest in ugly ways.  

LEO – Captains of industry protect their financial interests at all costs. Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, remind you not to expect them to do otherwise.  

VIRGO – Lawyers, judges, public commentators, editorializing journalists: At some point by the end of this decade, you will encounter circumstances which manifest brutality to fellow human beings in the name of laissez-faire, free market capitalism. Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, therefore now implore the more scholarly amongst you to review your college copies of Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan & John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, as well as the debates during America’s Constitutional Congress regarding life, liberty & property. Put plainly, certain aristocratic plutocrats will state that they believe that they have the God-given or humanly meritocratic right to trample other people. Do they?  

LIBRA – In Spanish, the phrase reads, “Mi casa es tu casa,” – my house is your house. Amongst certain Americans, the translation is inverted – deliberately, “Your house is my house.” However, Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, unerringly predict that there will be those who object to this brazenly nefarious American transliteration – much to the chagrin of those Americans who were not telling a joke, “Listen, douchebag – we stole it fair & square. Get a move on.” But those who object will not get a move on. There will be trouble in Dodge. Align with your allies as you determine your strategy – and keep the powder dry.  

SCORPIO – While many new entrepreneurial ventures will thrive over the rest of the decade, there will be many people who see these new entrepreneurial ventures as the cause of a whole host of new types of societal & cultural repression, and the more ambitious of such rebels will seek to organize all the disaffected in concert against them. While the labor unions of the Thirties succeeded, Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, recall that many such attempts to organize such rebels ended in outright murder & martyrdom. Don’t be fooled into thinking that modernity assuages humanity’s natural barbarism.  

SAGITTARIUS – Although other peoples’ new entrepreneurial ventures will bring prosperity to & around you, you view money not as an end in itself, and not as a way to control other people, but as a means to non-material ends. Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, cite this Sagittarian character attribute because you will soon be witness to many entrepreneurs who seek to use their wealth & influence to control other people – a goal which can & will eventually turn ugly. Take note of those who value power over freedom. Remain vigilant.  

CAPRICORN – Writers, artists: In the first fifty years of the 20th century, authors such as Theodore Dreiser, Frank Norris, Upton Sinclair & John Dos Passos recorded the development of the infrastructure & protocol of industrial capitalism as history veiled thinly as fiction – mirrored, as well, as fine art in the paintings of Thomas Hart Benton. Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, recommend that you draw your inspiration from these writers & artists, who develop a vehicle to comment upon how the technological innovations of the day midwifed or obstructed human evolution.  

AQUARIUS – Residents of Pittsburgh used to have difficulty breathing as burning coal created dense smog. Now Pittsburgh is sanctioned by the Democratic Party as a haven for the post-industrial lifestyle. Keeping this in mind, Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, declare that many cities during the next decade will get not only a facelift but a wholesale change of purpose & identity. Keep track of all the changes happening in your hometown.  

PISCES – Uranus, 1998-SM165, 2002-PN34, Albion & 1996-TR66, all in Retrograde in Taurus, exhort the Big Fish to put it upfront so that all know where you stand, “The pursuit of financial, professional & economic success is not worth the loss of even one human life.”  

(z) 1998-SM165 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on September 16, 1998.  

(y) 2002-PN34 is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on August 6, 2002. The orbit of 2002-PN34 traverses from within the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto. For information on how to interpret 2002-PN34, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

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

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

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

Juan Antonio Revilla

postulates that 1999-OX3 should be named Aethon, after one of the four demon-steeds of Pluto's chariot.

Okyrhoe< in Pisces
transits Retrograde Motion*
from June 24 to November 18, 2021,
Nessus> in Pisces
transits Retrograde Motion*
from June 14 to November 25, 2021, and
Neptune in Pisces
transits Retrograde Motion*
from June 25 to December 1, 2021.

Americans pondering recent history following the outbreak of the COVID-19 look at the George Floyd arrest & death, President Donald J. Trump’s now historic tweets, fake news outbreaks on Facebook, the contested 2020 Presidential Election, two Impeachments of the President & the January 6, 2021, Insurrection on the Capitol Building in Washington D.C., and can quickly conclude that these events represent the climax of American history dating back decades, and that it is all about to end in some perfectly violent & absurd apocalypse broadcast across network TV, CNN and Fox News.

Then again, the Associated Press’s recent article entitled “800 Arrested after FBI-Run Messaging App Tricks Organized Crime in Global Sting; Investigation Began in San Diego” catapults the more discerning citizens into the dystopian future. The AP wire service reported how the FBI built an encrypted messaging service for criminal organizations called ANOM after busting & dismantling one called Phantom Secure already in operation in Canada in 2018. Because these criminal organizations needed an encrypted messaging service, and the only one available at the time was ANOM, business trickled in until ANOM established its market reputation. Fairly soon, ANOM, with no competition in the marketplace, became the preferred encrypted messaging service for organized criminal organizations worldwide.  

ARIES – You can’t un-remember what you remember. Even if you could, it would leave a residue in your brain. (Remember “scandisk” & “checkdisk” on your old computer hard drives?) Keeping this in mind, Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, suggest that this explains the difference in skills of prophecy between old & young. Less memory obstructs the vision of the young. (Like when Fred Ewanuick as Hank Yarbo in Corner Gas says about the landscape of Saskatchewan, “There’s nothing to block your view.”). However, more memory informs the vision of the old – they can posit what happens next because it grew in front of them like a tree for decades.  

TAURUS – Sure, all Americans now experience a culmination & confluence of history from consequences stemming from disparate & contradictory landmark events dating back to the early 20th century, if not earlier. Still, Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, state that the emotion you feel surrounding such culmination & confluence must change once you obey the imperative mood swing of President Bill Clinton’s favorite song, “Don’t Stop Thinking about Tomorrow,” by Fleetwood Mac, “It’ll be better, better than before – yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.”  

GEMINI – When New York City Deputy Police Commissioner Jack Maple started fiddling around with Microsoft Excel macros to create CompStat in 1994 under New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton, he effectively stopped all of street crime in New York City – until New York City Police Officers were compelled to wear cameras as part of their uniform, creating the same problems that the videotaping of Rodney King & George Floyd did: Recording half the story from a distorted advantage. Now that the FBI has actually created a money-laundering app which organized crime groups actually used, absolutely unaware that it was exactly & only a law enforcement surveillance tool, Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, teaches the Twin a bitter lesson, “The cops point the finger at the criminals & the criminals point their fingers at the cops – and software engineers get rich.”  

CANCER – The transit of Neptune in Pisces from 2012 through early 2026 should be an unqualified financial bonanza for the Catholic Church – but if it took 400 years before Joseph Ratzinger, a.k.a. Pope Benedict XVI, to pardon Galileo Galilei, what does it say of the legal potency of the Catholic Church to defeat their real problem involving a clergy full of pedophiles? Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, comment that it took about 17 years to rebuild New York City’s World Trade Center, which did not exist for thirty. What kind of lawyers, demolition experts & construction personnel are necessary to excavate all the rot of a worldwide, two millennium infrastructure? Does anybody care enough to actually do it?  

LEO – Everybody’s guilty – so who do you punish? Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, know their answer, “You punish the innocent victim.” The innocent victim has no skin in the game; the innocent victim has no vantage of the compartmental or cumulative culpability; the innocent victim has no clue as to how to defend their interests. So, what charges do you lay against the innocent victim? That’s easy: Original sin.  

VIRGO – The widespread Black Lives Matters protests, as well as the January 6, 2022 Insurrection at the Capitol Building, really dazzled other people, “This is now the climax of Western Civilization!” You only shrugged. Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, now make you ask, “What new technology or invention will make ten people billionaires as it induces billions of people all around the globe to run around panicking like headless chickens?”  

LIBRA – Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, predict that the people at your workplace will soon become much dumber or profoundly smarter. Which is better? You will be safer in a place where everybody is stupid – but you will quickly become useless.  

SCORPIO – Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, denote that wanting sex is more virtuous than having sex. Unless you are in the physical shape of Floyd Mayweather or Rob Gronkowski, or unless you are drop-dead gorgeous like Paige Spirinac or Paulina Gretzky, you need to get to the gym . . . and pursue the opposite sex.  

SAGITTARIUS – You wouldn’t be taking care of elderly family members if they didn’t take care of you first for a very long time. Therefore, Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, impel you to think of the college education . . . of your great grandchildren later this century. Penetrate the future with your laser will.  

CAPRICORN – Avid readers of journalism, science journals & nonfiction: Join a book club specializing in introductory science fiction novels. Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, illustrate how many intellects process their thought based upon the implications & consequences of their ideas. Expand your ability to communicate ideas using a new genre as a platform.  

AQUARIUS – Yes, identifying the manifestations of the Hegelian dialectic is easier when one looks backward at history. Still, Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, slap the Waterbearer on the back, “Give yourself some credit. Sure, not all of your prophecies panned out – but didn’t Rod Carew almost hit .400?”  

PISCES – You get in an extremely dark mood when you witness how cavalierly certain people disregard serious karmic & moral consequences. Therefore, Okyrhoe, Nessus & Neptune, all Retrograde in Pisces, assign you as summer reading, Dante Alighieri’s The Inferno. Bring a liter of water & four or five servings of beef jerky with you, then find a park bench & plow through it, thoroughly & efficiently. Ponder the lack of mercy of a misanthropic future. Honor & acknowledge that karma comes to pass. .  

< Okyrhoe, a centaur planet that traverses between the orbits of Jupiter & Saturn, was discovered in September 1998 & named in June 2003. Okyrhoe (meaning “rapid flow”), the daughter of Chiron & Chariklo, had offended the Fates by using her gift of prophesy. Okyrhoe transformed into a mare and was given the new name Hippe. For information on how to interpret Okyrhoe, formerly 1998-SG35, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

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

Pluto conjuncts* Amycus! in Capricorn
from December 7, 2020 to February 17, 2023.

During the George W. Bush Administration, President Bush’s daughter Jenna, more outspoken than twin sister Barbara, learned to handle the media – but she made mistakes. Twice in early 2001, police arrested Jenna for buying alcohol as a minor. “With her second citation for alleged underage alcohol offenses, Jenna Bush has been thrust into the public spotlight for transgressions that likely would not be noticed if they involved any of her fellow students,” asserted USA TODAY’s Tom Kenworthy in “Bush Daughters Cited in Texas,” stating the obvious. “Among students lingering here Thursday between the spring and summer sessions, her situation generated a certain amount of sympathy, but also some feeling that a young woman in her position ought to be more careful.”

Recently, in “Former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager on Violence at U.S. Capitol: 'This is Not the America that I Know,'” Yahoo Entertainment’s Raechal Shewfelt recounts how NBC’s Today Show’s Hoda Kotb asked the former First Daughter for her thoughts about rioters’ storming the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. after rioters attended outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s rally, accompanied by son Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka Trump Kushner. Jenna Bush Hager proved that she knew well the pedestal from which she spoke. “I have had the privilege of standing on those steps, in several inaugurations, not just for family members, but for the first black President of the United States of America, when I was a teacher, in inner-city D.C., and that meant so much to so many,” Bush Hager said. “I kissed my grandfather goodbye in that rotunda. I have felt the majesty of our country in those walls and nobody can take that from any of us.”  

ARIES – To disregard “the scion of privilege,” the son or daughter of the prestigious local patriarch or matriarch, is unwise. Indeed, Pluto conjunct Amycus asserts that it matters not whether “the scion of privilege” acts & speaks artlessly or artfully. Whatever they say is heard – “the scion of privilege” holds the patriarch’s or matriarch’s ear. Show overt respect.  

TAURUS – The police chief’s son & daughter have gotten arrested when they were younger, and it may appear that that son or daughter got away unscathed legally. Even so, Pluto conjunct Amycus emphasizes that, back then, they were held accountable by the police chief, the ultimate übermensch of the Freudian superego. Do not presume the police chief’s son or daughter remained lawless & reckless forever – particularly if they know that you yourself are breaking the law.  

GEMINI – Don’t kid yourself: The brokerage house which caters to old money caters even more to the accounts held by the relatives of the brokerage firm’s founder – even after, as Pluto conjunct Amycus supposes some of you might do, such relatives demonstrate financial & behavioral innumeracy, “That is guaranteed to lose everybody money, you fool!”  

CANCER – Don’t be so foolish as to establish yourself as an outright opponent of a powerful, local businessperson’s family or politician’s family. Indeed, Pluto conjunct Amycus suggests that to do so may instead establish a scenario wherein you both start out as enemies & end up as friends. Instead, maintain a friendship with whichever generation accepts you – on your terms, “Consider me ‘counterpoint’ – leaning towards ‘satire.’” Hunt for that cunning laugh!  

LEO – Employing, supervising or working alongside an entry level employee whose father is an important local elected official or a local wealthy business tycoon turns the table – instead of monitoring their performance, Pluto conjunct Amycus more than suggests that they monitor yours. But, in fact, the dynamic is more complex than that. Be awake as to all the cross-currents.  

VIRGO – Student athletes & parents thereof: In certain regions of the country, including Florida & California, high school athletes train with the children of immensely wealthy & famous superstar athletes. What does this mean to you? The current answer: Pluto conjunct Amycus replies, “Absolutely nothing.” People are people are people. Behave naturally – let chips fall where they fall.  

LIBRA – Your boss, the mayor, may have invited you to dinner. Great! Nevertheless, Pluto conjunct Amycus warns you not to presume that the mayor is in charge of the mayor’s household. Discretion is (the better part of valor) (necessary for maintaining high-level political connections.)  

SCORPIO – The boss, who owns the joint, was always getting into trouble, barking orders in hostile borderline insults that degraded employees so harshly that they don’t want to do their job anymore. Well, Pluto conjunct Amycus announces that bosses have found the perfect surrogate to issue instructions for them: The boss’s son, “I survived & thrived under my father – and so can you!”  

SAGITTARIUS – You’ve got a powerful, well-connected father? Well, Pluto conjunct Amycus gives you two ways to look at it: With a powerful father, 1) one can never get in trouble; or 2) one is guaranteed a position of power eventually, provided that one never, ever gets in trouble.  

CAPRICORN – As a child in a family with a prominent parent, Pluto conjunct Amycus states that that child has no peers – only siblings. Cousins don’t count!  

AQUARIUS – Policy: When you meet the son or daughter of the owner, boss, or local politically elected official while at your job, Pluto conjunct Amycus demands that you treat the children as the equal to the parents. The Waterbearer’s penchant for decorum is impeccable & absolute! Policy!  

PISCES – Express gratitude for being given the opportunity to speak with a powerful individual’s son or daughter, “I appreciate the chance to converse with the younger generation.” Pluto conjunct Amycus empowers you to speak cryptically & didactically, with veiled reference, “You are familiar no doubt with the invitation of the Savannah gentleman in John Berendt’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil concerning his city’s status in Georgia, ‘What will you have to drink?’ Well, I would reply, ‘A well-mannered dirty martini’ – despite my ostensible lack of tools & social graces, I nevertheless aim to impress.”  

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

The North Node$ transits Gemini
from June 4, 2020 to December 21, 2021.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jupiter,
which exits Pisces to enter Aquarius
on July 29, 2021,
continues to transit Aquarius in Retrograde Motion*
until October 18, 2021, while
Crantor@ in Aquarius
transits Retrograde Motion*
from May 28 to October 30, 2021.

Very few people want to study the phenomena of the arrests of Rodney King, Eric Garner, George Floyd, et al, and their subsequent trials & appellate trials of the police who arrested them. The politics surrounding the entire phenomena are driven by race, making the objective appraisal of facts presented before the (court) (historian) open to (confirming) (undermining) (opposing) both deeply held beliefs & subjective biases.

However, both the arrests of King, Garner, Floyd, et al, and all the subsequent trials of those accused therein have inspired vast swaths of the population to photograph & to videotape highly selective ongoing worldly phenomena – not as journalists, referring such photos & videos to a written story or presentation written as official news, but as evidence to present to the court system as proof of probable cause. Many such people who use cell phones or cameras often act in bad faith, sometimes constructing a deceitful situation in order to create an incriminating image.

As a result, as time continues forward, there will be more & more violent episodes when an individual objecting to their photograph being taken without their permission grabs the property of somebody else’s cell phone or camera & destroys it on the spot.  

ARIES – Whether it is you or somebody else, somebody might not agree with the popular assessment of what happened to George Floyd, Eric Garner, Rodney King, et al. In such instance, Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, state that the final straw that turns discussion into argument is when somebody says, “What is wrong with you – can’t you see what’s in front of your eyes?” The truth is that the dispute does not involve what everybody sees in the photo or video – it involves information or actions not recorded for your viewing convenience. Keep your mind open & your hypercritical mouth closed.  

TAURUS – Whether one is President, Governor, Mayor, CEO or Head Supervisor, Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, state that it is just as important to look the part as one’s ability to do the job – whether in person, in a photograph or on videocamera.  

GEMINI – Astronomers, astrologers, astronomy & astrology aficionados: In the early Nineties, right around the launch of Word 5.0 for Windows, discoveries of planets accelerated, as astronomers using computers to crunch their discovery data reported their findings to the IAU’s (“International Astronomical Union’s”) MPC (“Minor Planet Center”) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. However, as some of these planets may have been moving from perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) to aphelion (furthest distance from the Sun), the placements of certain planets, such as 1994-TA, nicknamed “Pylenor,” or 2000-FZ53, nicknamed “Eurytion,” faded, got lost & disappeared. Now, Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, inspire those amongst you to look back at some of these asteroids which got lost in the shuffle during the midst of the trajectory of their orbits. Research as far as the data available yields. Develop hypotheses.  

CANCER – Whether they be the long-time bartender, the restaurant manager, the beat cop or the tenured high school teacher, Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, advise that individuals with senior standing in certain communities develop peculiarly doctrinaire attitudes that will forever remain inflexible. Try not to cross the boundary of those who do not fully realize that they are zealous ideologues.  

LEO – Read Libra. Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, make you the star in front of the camera. Don’t do anything that makes you want to hide from the camera – the camera will find you. Moreover, the camera wants to love you. This is how you will want to feel as Pluto transits Aquarius from 2023 to 2044. Do your thing – and let the camera love you!  

VIRGO – IT professionals: While it may take more time than you prefer to identify where the problem resides in your network, once you do so, Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, declare that you can fix current, and forestall many future, problems, by making what seems like drastic hardware replacements proactively now.  

LIBRA – Read Leo. Politicians: Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, demand that you shine on camera. Don’t do anything that makes you hide from attention. Furthermore, you must be bigger than the room in order to influence people – and, with the right photographer or videographer, you will be bigger than the sky!  

SCORPIO – Read Capricorn. Mayors, urban marketers, business improvement district professionals: Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, make this the time for a high-end photoshoot of the neighborhoods in your city to which you wish to attract attention & money. A picture is worth one thousand words – so get hundreds of thousands of words out there!  

SAGITTARIUS – Photographers: Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, say, “More shots are better than less.” Avoid overcalculating. Do not edit before you shoot. Select from a plethora.  

CAPRICORN – Read Scorpio. Adversaries will now try to redefine their cities & regions by new marketing campaigns with fresh photography. Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, state that, in order for you to succeed, you must put the opposite idea in the public’s mind. Disseminate current photographs which depict the cities & regions of adversaries in a less flattering, more realistic light. Force the issue as to whether or not that city or region is improving.  

AQUARIUS – Let photographers & videographers photograph & videotape you. However, Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius, advise you neither to speak nor to offer quotes. Remember that Saturn still transiting your 1st house makes you look bad no matter what. Make a reasonable excuse, “We will be releasing a statement.” Duck attention.  

PISCES – Photographers, videographers, filmmakers: Get as much work done as possible under the current influence of Jupiter & Crantor, both Retrograde in late Aquarius. Your many deadlines are remote enough to give you copious time to refine already outstanding work. Get to the gym on a regular basis to sweat & to clear your mind – then get back to the genius’s workshop!

* Crantor, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbit of Uranus between the orbits of Saturn & Neptune, was discovered in April 2002 and named in December 2005. Demoleon the centaur killed Crantor the Lapith with a tree trunk that Demoleon had thrown at Theseus, who ducked out of the way, as per the advice of Pallas Athena, at the very last minute. For information on how to interpret Crantor, formerly 2002-GO9, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

* 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.
