ARTICLE #1

Mars transits Virgo from August 19 to October 4, 2019. Throughout the bulk of John Richardson’s 19th century masterpiece of Canadian historical fiction The Canadian Brothers, Gerard Grantham enjoyed universal esteem amongst not only his fellow British officers & soldiers at Fort Amherstberg, at the entrance of the Detroit River at the northwest corner of Lake Erie, but also amongst his American military enemies within Fort Detroit as an extremely brave & accomplished soldier of the first order during the War of 1812 (or, as Richardson called it at the time, “The Late American War”). After, however, Americans captured Grantham as a prisoner while Grantham was delivering a prisoner of war aboard a boat originating in Fort Detroit to arrive at an American fort in Buffalo – a prisoner of war who escaped – Grantham developed an acute neurosis after spending copious amounts of time with Matilda Montgomerie, a beautiful, voluptuous female relative of a high-ranking American naval officer. The rest of The Canadian Brothers details Grantham’s mental, moral & spiritual decline as he becomes obsessed with capturing the hand of this manipulative foreign vixen by any means necessary.  

ARIES – Read Virgo. Things go well! – Until they don’t. Mars in Virgo quotes Tom Verlaine’s “Marquee Moon,” the title song of Marquee Moon by Television, “I spoke to a man down at the tracks, and I ask him, How he don't go mad. He said, ‘Look here, Junior – Don't you be so happy. And for Heaven's sake don't you be so sad.’” Even keel!  

TAURUS – Whether as an artist, an acrobat, a ballet dancer or a stunt person working with unicycles, bicycles & stilts, Mars in Virgo guarantees you will do some of the best work of your life – until such point when somebody, perhaps even yourself, challenges you to go beyond your personal limits. Don’t let pride prevent you from saying no. Know when to retreat.  

GEMINI – As long as you are in total control of the project, you can get the job done in record time. However, at some point, Mars in Virgo guarantees that you will be working with bosses, colleagues or family members who do not know what they are doing – but insist upon talking control of the overall project. Count to ten before you scream!  

CANCER – Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security because negotiations or trial presentations seem to go well. Down the line, just as you are about to close your arguments, Mars in Virgo warns that a sneaky adversary will change the most basic definitions of your very strong arguments in order to flummox you. It is a cheap but effective trick. Don’t get overblown with confidence. Anticipate discombobulation.  

LEO – Get as much work done as you possibly can while you remain self-reliant, away from bosses’ prying eyes. Mars in Virgo denotes that you will soon be forced to “cooperate” – and you will no longer be able to assert, “This sandbox is mine!” Maximize the efficiency & productively of your autonomy while you still enjoy it.  

VIRGO – Read Aries. Don’t let romantic attention or praise from an adoring public to get to your head. Mars in Virgo signifies that the only way to avoid an emotional & psychological crash lies in not letting yourself indulge the euphoria . . . of being loved & adored. Shrug it off, “Just another day in the salt mines!”  

LIBRA – A competitor who experiments with new machines or robotics temporarily has a leg up on you – and will let you know it to your face. Unfortunately for them, Mars in Virgo declares that they will run into problems & breakdowns much sooner than they anticipated – and it will make them much more stressed out than you as they begin to fall behind. Disregard blowhards who gloat.  

SCORPIO – A professional ally goes on such a torrid winning streak that competitors begin to target them. Mars in Virgo hires you to run interference for them so that they may leave the stage & the building unscathed – and ready for their next episode!  

SAGITTARIUS – Bosses want you to produce – and the best way to do that is to turn off your cell phone, get away from your office phone & Outlook account, and executing work with intense furious focus. Mars in Virgo states that once you begin to think of or about yourself, the intense furious focus will only continue to dissipate further. Burn like a red light for as long as possible.

CAPRICORN – Whether in a court of law or in a competitive academic endeavor, it appears that one supremely confident individual is in command of all the facts to such a degree that they will stand unchallenged. What you must introduce in order to slow this powerhouse down, according to the current influence of Mars in Virgo . . . is reasonable doubt.  

AQUARIUS – If somebody else wants to drive 120 miles an hour at night on a highway or in a drag race against a like-minded sociopath, you are not going to stop them – Mars in Virgo instructs simply to stay outside of their cars as they do so. True, nothing bad happens every single time somebody drives so insanely – but, sooner rather than later, the odds catch up with everybody. Barricade yourself from those intent upon committing a glorious suicide.  

PISCES – A spouse or business partner acts like you don’t exist because they currently are riding a high, indulging all sorts of adulation & attention to which they are unaccustomed.  Mars in Virgo says that, at a certain point, the bubble bursts, and they will return to you, lacking confidence & whimpering. Don’t be too cruel. .

Jupiter,
which turns to Direct Motion* on August 12, 2019,
completes its transit of Sagittarius on December 2, 2019, while
2002-GZ32@,
which turns to Direct Motion* on August 28, 2019,
completes its transit of Sagittarius on March 26, 2020.

The original primary campaign promise of candidate Donald J. Trump previous to the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, to build a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexican border, skewed the American perspective international relations with not only Mexico but also Central & South American countries beyond a conception of practical reality. Without a geopolitical worldview of the southern hemisphere of the Americas, what are people to think of all the American tourists dying in the Dominican Republic – as well as the assassination attempt of the Boston Red Sox’ David “Big Papi” Ortiz? When the Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) & the FBI inventoried the 20 tons of cocaine that sailed into port on one container ship named the Gayane in mid-June, and interrogated suspects & investigated about what happened – as Philadelphia’s NBC10 News Brian X. McCrone reports, “At least twice while the ship was en route between stops in Chile and Panama, numerous smaller boats approached the Gayane at sea to hand off large bundles of cocaine” – how did they fit that land mass spanning the entire continent of South America,” between stops in Chile and Panama,” into its proper context? And, indeed, as they had already discovered 17 tons of cocaine as they continued to search, night & day, for exactly how many tons of cocaine were already on board, how shocked they must have been at 4 a.m. the next morning when they heard a massive boom from the northwest, “What the living Hell was that?”

Somebody replied, “The oil refinery blew up.”  

ARIES – International travelers: Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, warn you harsher than Department of Transportation airport security, “Do not try to fool customs.” Better outside than in – at all costs!  

TAURUS – Did you ever get un café con leche or un cordito at Versailles on La Calle Ocho in Miami or un lechero at el Gran Café de la Parroquia in Heroic Veracruz to realize that, as an American (if you are an American), you cannot visit the city & country, Havana. Cuba, from which those flavors originated? Have you ever eaten half a pastrami sandwich at Katz’s Deli on East Houston Street in New York City’s Lower East Side or half a smoked meat at Schwartz’s on Saint Laurent Boulevard in Montreal only to realize that your father & grandfather ate & loved those sandwiches hundreds of times in their lives? Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, denote that you are accessing the remote legacy of your family, city, state, province or country through simple peasant’s food – as its flavor reminds you of something that is impossible for you to get at any price.  

GEMINI – A spouse, family member or business partner from a foreign country cannot possibly explain to you their intuition, anxiety or insight about some local phenomenon that affected them profoundly which you summarily failed to notice. Indeed, no matter what questions you ask, Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, will leave you completely in the dark about what this person, so deeply close to you, now perceives. Appreciate not only the mystery but the fact that some certain psychological phenomena so very close to you are light years beyond your comprehension.

CANCER – Certain restaurant-laden wonderlands, such as the Riverwalk in San Antonio, New Orleans’ French Quarter, the Bergenline in Union City, New Jersey or Roosevelt Avenue in Queens, New York, all serve as a prelude to an antacid commercial – in which, Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, note, you will play a starring role, unless you put your eyes back in your head with an easy to understand verbal reminder, “My eyes are not bigger than my stomach.”  

LEO – Salespeople: A potential client who sounds enthused about your products & services leads you on without telling you that that potential client needs you to solicit several different layers of corporate approval before the ultimate power broker makes an arbitrary decision. As you walk blindly into this maze, Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, remind you to restrain your enthusiasm. Redress all expectations. Travel through this process one slow step at a time.  

VIRGO – Meeting members of your bloodline who live in different country will not entail a weekend with a husband, wife & children but a diplomatic ceremony involving several heads of state & dedicated fiefdoms. If you are not up to meeting about 100 people who truly are your relatives, then Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, urge you to take a step back. Think this one through more carefully.  

LIBRA – Whether you are a middle manager explaining professional duties to a training class, a politician discussing actual legislative policy or a novelist telling the story of a traveler, scholar, priest or rabbi, Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, denote that it will be impossible to keep it short. You cannot explain what interests everybody without delving into background – and delving into that background requires explanation of even deeper background. Either you move forward without any discussion of history – or you speak in a series of relatively brief soundbytes over a series of sessions to avoid exhausting anybody’s attention span.  

SCORPIO – Consolidating your debt, payment schedules & business dealings is an absolutely mandatory strategic imperative under the current influence of Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius. What you currently pay on a monthly basis may be difficult – but the acceleration of what you will be paying during the next cycle will overwhelm you unless you have a plan in place to tackle it several weeks before it actually kicks in. Don’t expect to “grow into the role.” Plan & prepare proactively.  

SAGITTARIUS – Whether it is simply because you are gaining weight (the fat man, Jupiter, sits in your 1st house of basic appearance), or because, as Pink Floyd sings in “Dogs” off Animals, ”It's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around,” Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, declare that you are getting in your own way. Nothing good or bad can happen to or for you if you insist upon taking control of the situation – if you want something to happen to or for you, remove yourself from the situation & let other people do what they need to do for the reasons they need to do it.  

CAPRICORN – You are protected from, but also hamstrung by, the collapse of other individuals’ massive debt, under the current influence of Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius. This leads to what traffic reporters on radio & television call, “rubbernecking delays.” Don’t complicate your own life by making aggressive moves prematurely.  

AQUARIUS – You can choose any political position that you want – and, as Aquarius the Waterbearer, you will. Realize, however, that, once you choose certain political positions, Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, will inform you that you will no longer be in a position to choose political allies & enemies. Instead, political allies & enemies will choose . . . you. Think before you speak . . . publicly!  

PISCES – When traveling, do not underestimate travel times & distances between connections, whether within the airport, between two places in a city, on opposite sides of a river or between two different countries. Jupiter & 2002-GZ32, both in Direct Motion in late Sagittarius, allow your desires to blind your logic. If you are not flying in a Concorde, you cannot go faster than the speed of sound. The laws of physics apply. Recalibrate your itinerary in line with science. .

@ 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.

Saturn in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion1
from April 29 to September 19, 2019,
Amycus(z) in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion1
from April 23 to September 15, 2019,
Pluto in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion1
from April 24 to October 4, 2019,
Chariklo(y) in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion1
from April 28 to September 29, 2019, and
2001-KF77(x) in Capricorn transits Retrograde Motion1
from April 28 to September 27, 2019.

The South Node$ transiting Capricorn from November 16, 2018 to June 4, 2020 denotes lessons aught from past Capricorn cycles, while conjunctions to the South Node$ from these aforementioned, as well as other, planets in Capricorn, immediately before & after these Retrograde1 cycles, declares that many people failed to learn these lessons which had been taught.

Many of these lessons date from the late Eighties & early Nineties, when Neptune, Saturn, Uranus & 1999-OX3^ transited Capricorn. During this period, when Neptune entered first & transited the longest, Neptune held the potential not only to expand but also to corrupt the virtues of Capricorn. However, because the extremely disciplined, innovative, brilliant & relentless influences of Saturn, Uranus & 1999-OX3^ followed Neptune, Neptune expanded & intensified Neptune’s virtues – particularly during the Uranus/Neptune/1999-OX3^ conjunctions2 of 1992 & 1993, resulting in the absolutely pinnacle & apex of big business corporatism in Lower Manhattan, New York City, the United States & the world.

Many of these lessons date from the early Millennium, as Chiron< conjuncted2 Nessus> for several years. Corporate capitalism, wounded mercilessly from the head-first assault during the terrorist attacks upon New York City’s World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, simultaneously endured internal debasement as a result of the corruption of Enron, WorldCom, Adelphia & other corporate giants. The depth of the wound connoted by Chiron< the wounded healer dwarfed the will necessary to survive represented by the bitter rapist Nessus>, dragging the U.S. and the world into economic depression at the end of the Administration of President George W. Bush in early 2009.

With the exception of Saturn, the current stellium of planets & centaurs transiting concurrent with the South Node$ reflect not the discipline of the Capricorn planets of the Eighties & Nineties, nor the devastation of Chiron< conjunct2 Nessus> at the beginning of the Millennium, but, instead, a type of flippant, disinterested, devil-may-care self-destruction, like a villain throwing back a double whisky knowing that he is going down but wants to take everybody down with him.

Whether you condone or reject that type of nihilism . . . is totally up to you. 

ARIES – The more that a boss has earned their authority through accelerated meritocratic performance, the less acerbically confrontational such a boss need be. Which is why Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, alert you as to how acerbically confrontational certain bosses are. If one need always defend one’s territory, is not one always vulnerable to losing it?  

TAURUS – The uniforms that policemen wear, like all uniforms, are deliberately designed to give the impression that each cop is fundamentally & qualitatively interchangeable – which is not an inconsistent philosophy as the city trains police according to explicit physical & intellectual standards. Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, remind you that such explicit standards represent much more of a highly unattainable context than a status quo. Truth be told: When you approach or all a cop, you should have no fundamental qualms about that representatives of the state to whom you address your personal concern. Make no presumptions. Be circumspect.  

GEMINI – Well do you remember those times in your life when you had no money whatsoever. As you reflect upon those bad old days, you notice investors who are very flippant about both their long-term investments & day-trading habits, as well as public leaders handling vast sums of public money who speak & act with an extremely haughty, high-handed flippancy. Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, therefore agree with you when you resolve that you will only invest your money with & in individuals who take their own & other peoples’ money deadly seriously.  

CANCER – Married & attached Crabs now consider the virtue of being single, in light of the arrogant presumptuousness of their mate. Singles wonder why they are alone. Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, insist that this juxtaposition is not ironic. Singles had the same opportunity to make the same mistakes as their married counterparts – but their impossibly high standards protected them from an unhappy relationship. Is there something in the structure itself that is really causing the problem?”

LEO – Back in the day, in the professional workplace, neither boss nor colleagues would tolerate bad habits – bad habits mean that the company loses money – but both bosses & colleagues would disregard backward, racist, sexist, homophobic attitudes amongst anybody & everybody who could deliver the goods. Now, because diversity in the workplace is a legal mandate, Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, emphasize that such bad attitudes are in fact bad habits. Such bad habits actually prevent your company from delivering the goods & causes it to lose money. Reform is long overdue. Get going.  

VIRGO – Student athletes, parents of student athletes: Your school, your city & all the mothers & fathers at your school’s entire extended community is sick & tired of offering excuses & extremely lenient punishments for student athletes who not only flout the law, but who also show contempt for it as they do so. Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, denote that there will be no more slaps on the wrists. Realize that it will not matter if you are the only one in the past twenty years who will be punished – your name will be punished, and your name will be cursed, for all of the guilty.  

LIBRA – You look at the corruption in your local municipality & you wonder, “How can they get away with it for so long?” Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, respond that the morally bankrupt are truly ingeniously, albeit not infinitely, resourceful. In this context, their resources are now running dry. Put on the pressure.  

SCORPIO – Business people: Negotiate with vendors via well-chosen proxies. Customers: Avoid, and in fact shun, surly merchants. Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, confirm that you cannot indulge surly shouting matches & vulgar attempts to scam & to cheat. Stay above the fray so that you may contemplate & strategize the upcoming future.

SAGITTARIUS – Plan travel & entertainment expenditures so that you do not binge out of frustrated sense of arrested spiritual development. While it is unhealthy for you to hold desperately & tightly to every nickel, Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, insist that you need to hold onto as much of your money as possible. Be frugal as you anticipate when you will be allowed to loosen up & have fun.  

CAPRICORN – How you now experience life differs greatly from how others interpret how you now experience life. With all the darkness swirling around you like liquid midnight, Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, insist that it is more important than ever to take into consideration how others perceive you. It doesn’t matter that you disagree – take into account others’ opinions as undeniable, verified fact.  

AQUARIUS – Undeclared enemies have no idea how transparently they now expose their hypocrisy & deceit. However, Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, do not suggest that you question the failure of your undeclared enemies’ cloak & dagger ways – or even analyze it. The fact is that these undeclared enemies have been using these same tricks on you & on others for so long that they have exhausted all the evil mojo in their once untouchable black magic. Comment, for good measure, “It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people” – then carry on with your very busy life.  

PISCES – The more that you observe the ruthless intrigue of your professional, political & socioeconomic associates, the more that it seems like that these associates behave like sophomores in high school. If there were real stakes involved, there might be a reason for such intrigue – but Saturn, Amycus, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77, all Retrograde in Capricorn, note that these associates behave the same way all the time. For all the money, power & influence that these people have, can’t they afford to be nicer, more charitable – and certainly more mature?  

! 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.

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

> 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.

$ 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. 

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

Juan Antonio Revilla
(http://www.expreso.co.cr/centaurs/posts/naming.html)
postulates that 1999-OX3 should be named Aethon, after one of the four demon-steeds of Pluto's chariot.  

< 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.  

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

ARTICLE #4

Chiron* in Aries transits Retrograde Motion1 from July 8 to December 14, 2019. As Chiron* in Pisces squared2 Pholus@ in Sagittarius of & off from June 2015 to December 2018, during the end of Chiron’s decade-long transit through Pisces, official authority figures, bureaucrats, clerks, administrators, official & unofficial organizers of specific groups or the general masses, and airport security emphasized as they handled you, amongst handling others, that you are nobody specific, you are a type amongst a sample, the logistic way to handle those of your type is to do X instead of Y, you are not one of a million, and even if you were, in China, there would only be 1600 of you, we can handle that easily in one day. Now, as you encounter these types, you perambulate insouciantly through the line, amongst the group, humming “Wallflower,” by Peter Gabriel, “You have gambled with your own life, and you face the night alone –While the builders of the cages sleep with bullets, bars and stone. They do not see your road to freedom, which you build with flesh and bone.” Then, down the road, a singular authority figure, probably a savvy cop, who notices you as an individual, as Chiron* in Aries squares2 Pholus@ in Capricorn from October 23 to April 29, 2019, pays close attention to you, “Got to keep an eye on this one.”  

ARIES – What some people consider “ducking under the radar” you regard as “being pushed along with the herd” – because, as Retrograde Chiron states, you do not respect hiding. However, this is not an invitation to draw attention to yourself unnecessarily – enemies will be watching.  

TAURUS – It does not always matter that somebody is telling the truth – with some people, it doesn’t matter what they say at all. However, if a legal issue is pending, Retrograde Chiron states that you should trust your gut instinct. Look that individual in the eye – hard.  

GEMINI – You deeply feel that your opinion matters. Realize, however, that Retrograde Chiron will bring you into contact with those who will discriminate against you professionally & financially because of your opinion – whether or not it is legal.  

CANCER – Organized religion often fosters the illusion that “We’re all in this together.” While this illusion is a comforting thought, Retrograde Chiron warns you not to let it lull you into a false sense of security. Some enemy out there has no respect for God – or for you. Be prepared for battle.  

LEO – When you can’t see your enemies, how can the battle between you be anything but impersonal? Once, however, you see your enemies, Retrograde Chiron surmises that you fall into the trap of personalizing your conflict. This would not be helpful. Act like this enemy does not exist.  

VIRGO – A spouse or business partner gives you hair-pulling grief because of their love or concern for your family or company. This is all based upon love. However, Retrograde Chiron warns that new conflicts with older local merchants or teenage thugs are not based upon love at all, but upon hate – their hate. Don’t underestimate their barbarism.  

LIBRA – Obedient employees suffer complications, but will obey. Retrograde Chiron shifts the dynamic by letting you know that business partners & rivals may not even show you cursory respect. Why don’t you deserve respect? You do. That’s not the issue. Demand respect.  

SCORPIO – Recent trends have induced you to consider how you feel about other people rather than what you think. Now Retrograde Chiron says, “Forget your feelings.” Issue or heed instructions. Demand execution or execute.  

SAGITTARIUS – You’ve suffered enough, ending the paralysis of analysis about how your family, city, state, province or country has limited your options, personality & lifestyle – now, you are ready to act! That’s all well & good, but Retrograde Chiron warns you not to act without thinking at all lest you rebel against your own paycheck.  

CAPRICORN – You absolutely hated when you thought you were speaking casually & then some undeclared rival quoted your more colorful private comments to a wider public audience in order to damn you & your reputation You’ve survived that – but now Retrograde Chiron warns that certain troublemakers in your local area wish to cast even more aspersions against you. You have no good reason to play nice.  

AQUARIUS – For several years, you submerged yourself in an ill-fitting group of so-called peers because you couldn’t possibly fight every battle with every challenger. Now, Retrograde Chiron notices that you are a lot less afraid. You want to take on all comers – but some of these with whom you’d like to do battle are bigger, smarter & stronger than you. Don’t overreach yourself in the heat of the moment.  

PISCES – You stretched yourself too thin professionally for too many people the last several years – but you were paid well for it. Now, Retrograde Chiron warns that certain clients & associates want more from you than they are willing to pay. It is not a question of that you say, “No” – but how do you say, “No”?

* 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 Clown, bridges the gap between Saturn & Uranus, exhorting us to teach that which we most need to learn.

@ 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.

ARTICLE #5

Uranus in Taurus transits Retrograde Motion* from August 11, 2019 to January 12, 2020. While materialism may represent a philosophical attitude of the West that is emphasized so excessively as to debase it into vice, everybody on Earth requires a certain amount of stuff. While some people get more & more stuff all the time, other people only get stuff when the stuff that they need – a car, a computer, a tea kettle, a refrigerator, an air conditioner – completely breaks down. The real issue is not whether one buys it on sale or negotiates a good price or is the first on the block to get the new gadget – the issue really is, “Do I have what I need to do whatever I want to do whenever I want to do it?”  

ARIES – Do you want the stuff or the money? Retrograde Uranus states that you can have both. Credit card installment plans, apartment shares, collateral secured home improvement loans – you can hold onto your money. However, in order to get both the stuff & the money, you need to have a plan – and you will need to make a deal.  

TAURUS – Falstaff, that Shakespearean go-to negative Taurean stereotype, ate too much & drank too much – because, like most Taureans, Falstaff was an epicurean hedonist. Retrograde Uranus now mentions fat boy Falstaff to remind epicurean hedonistic Bulls that, at a certain point, the pleasure brought by overindulging food & drink turns to pain – and makes you look less than (or more than) svelte. Eat & drink less. Eat & drink less caloric substances. Do miles & miles & miles & miles of cardio. Endeavor to change your physical appearance.  

GEMINI – You have no way of knowing how professional businesses where you do not work tabulate their invoices, keep their databases or monitor their employees in dealings with you. At some point, later in the year, an untoward event may clue you into realizing that something is really wrong. Until something appears to be askew, Retrograde Uranus advises that you engage in communications transparently, on the surface, as if all is normal. Allow abnormalities to draw attention to themselves without any effort from you.  

CANCER – Personal & professional associates know the terms of all sorts of credit cards, hotel rewards packages & frequent flyer programs because they have been in a position to benefit from several of them simultaneously. Retrograde Uranus emphasizes that, when shopping for such packages, knowing what you want does not matter so much as knowing whether what is available ultimately benefits you. Study offers more closely. Ask experience-based advice.  

LEO – Bosses who don’t make their numbers get fired. Bosses who make their numbers via corruption or fraud get arrested. As you watch bosses get led out the door in & not in handcuffs, Retrograde Uranus makes you wonder, “Is this job a sucker’s bet?” Sidestep traps.  

VIRGO – Writers, artists, critics: A book or piece of artwork need not be immediately popular, but, inherently, must make a statement that thousands, then million, of readers & viewer can acknowledge, appreciate, remember, then, ultimately, revere. Retrograde Uranus spells out criteria, “Does this individual have something to say? Did he or she say it? Can I, and other people, realize that it was said?” Eschew pretensions. Analyze the clarity of the transmittal.  

LIBRA – Retrograde Uranus darkly foreshadows that the commencement of your moral debasement lies in developing a taste for luxuries which you cannot afford & in cultivating a desire for partnerships & relationships that you are now allowed to have. For the sake of your own salvation – just say, “No.”  

SCORPIO – Why does your spouse or partner stubbornly defy you? Why does your spouse or partner change their mind about what you jointly agreed at a moment when other people are watching? Retrograde Uranus suggests that their behavior may have nothing to do with your own behavior & actions – your spouse or partner may just be reacting to too many different stimuli at the same time.  

SAGITTARIUS – Retrograde Uranus denotes that all the labor-saving devices in the world will not help you if you aren’t using proper & functional equipment at work.  

CAPRICORN – Writers, artists: Innovation differs from flippancy. Retrograde Uranus declares that, while flippancy can produce genius whimsy on a barroom napkin, it cannot produce a noble masterpiece. If your flippancy generously yields to you an idea, work through that idea with discipline to a conclusion that everybody can respect.  

AQUARIUS – You can no longer remain where you live with the reasoning that your neighborhood & city are familiar to you. Retrograde Uranus emphasizes your neighborhood & city are changing rapidly – and change brings more change. Consider neighborhoods & cities which may accommodate you, your personality & your family’s long-term needs.  

PISCES – Your jokes about money make people laugh – but only because, as Retrograde Uranus winks, the jokes aren’t about money at all. People do the strangest things . . . for good & evil reasons.

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

ARTICLE #6

Neptune in Pisces transits Retrograde Motion1 from June 21 to November 28, 2019. The U.S.A. cascades forward with various power brokers forming a static, predictable and, to many, fatal equilibrium: President Donald J. Trump as intransigent, culturally reactionary executive, Republican Senator from Kentucky Mitch McConnell as obstructionist Senate Majority leader, Speaker of the House Congresswoman from California Nancy Pelosi. Alliances for & adversaries against are total, non-negotiable & inflexible. Accordingly, attention turns to the Democratic Presidential debates. While the overt narrative therein pits the moderates, embodied by former Vice-President Joe Biden & represented ably by former Congressman from Maryland John K. Delaney (no relation), against the progressives, represented by Senator from Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren & Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders, a buried subtext will eventually, whether in 2019 & 2020 or 2022 & 2023, sprout into  national consciousness: The concept of the “religious left,” in contradistinction to the primarily Southern Baptist religious right, as conceptualized by openly gay Mayor from South Bend, Indiana Pete Buttigieg. The alliance of “Mayor Pete” with the politically active homosexuals represents a no-brainer – Mayor Buttigieg is articulate & intelligent in addition to being gay. However, homosexuals are, in the end, a limited voting bloc, not enough to tilt a majority by itself. The “religious left,” which, if one is addressing the presence of those raised Catholic in the U.S.A. (not all of which are Democrats, of course), represents 50 million people. Indeed, one need not actualize the political conscience of this massive voting bloc by invoking the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election. One need only pique the interests of these 50 million people towards the involvement of Pope Francis, the Argentine Jorge Mario Bergoglio, in North American politics – a willingness he has already shown by crossing the U.S.-Mexican border at La Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua to El Paso, Texas on February 17, 2016 – especially when Retrograde1 & Direct Motion1 Neptune in Pisces trines2 Retrograde1 & Direct Motion1 Mercury in Scorpio from November 11 to December 1, 2019. Easier to rebel against a disintegrating church infrastructure than a belligerent monolithic nation state!  

ARIES – You really have little to no control over how large-scale institutions – the church, hospitals, medical insurers, assisted living facilities – handle jointly held resources which effect you directly, sometimes extremely significantly. Retrograde Neptune asserts that you have all the more reason to keep in touch with these institutions on a regular basis to discern the status quo. Moreover, if you know that some bureaucrat is stonewalling you, or suspect that somebody is giving you a story, just show up & ask to speak to whoever is in charge.  

TAURUS – Everybody has already stated their political opinions. Judges have already issued verdicts on charges pressed. Those who go to church have been going to church and nobody new has been “saved.” All that being said, Retrograde Neptune counters that the false equilibrium that everybody now experiences is really a seething status quo – more than one loser is just waiting for an excuse to go absolutely nuts.  

GEMINI – Never before has there been so much garbage work to do at your job since your boss learned how close they are to going bankrupt. Even so, Retrograde Neptune signifies that this is no time to rebel. A lot of your bosses’ peers are in the same boat – there is no available liquid cash. Do more than your share of labor – but cultivate your own alternative professional self-interest much more aggressively.  

CANCER – The cocky assertions of business partners & rivals, as well as the bloated confidence of supercilious colleagues & peers, makes you sick. Retrograde Neptune sympathizes – almost everybody seems to have forgotten God – and those who haven’t forgotten God just plain ignore Him, “He doesn’t sign my paycheck!” Then, of course, there are the Calvinist types, “God loves me – that’s why I’m not homeless or in prison.” What is it that you should do? Pray in the way only you can – as Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead used to sing, “I need a miracle every day.”  

LEO – “The Dirty 30,” the most corrupt police precinct in the history of New York City, stole drugs & money, planted drugs on the innocent, sold drugs that they stole, and lied on arrest reports in any one of a thousand ways as they ravaged their neighborhood in Harlem before NYPD Police Commissioner William Bratton liquidated all the scum. What would you do if you found yourself in an environment where the next person is even more evil than the last? Retrograde Neptune asks you, “Will you have the strength to leave?”  

VIRGO – Either your spouse deceives themselves about what is going on with your children & family or they absolutely dejected & unsure what to do. In both instances, Retrograde Neptune makes it incumbent upon you to do what is immediately mandatory & necessary. Hope & pray that your spouse snaps out of it.  

LIBRA – Employees who now lower their heads to focus upon their work labor peacefully & quietly but are nevertheless not content Retrograde Neptune signifies that such employees discern no current available options – but they are still looking. If something becomes available for them, the sudden egress may leave you woefully short-staffed. Shake yourself free from that false sense of security.  

SCORPIO – Retrograde Neptune denotes no change in the current status quo of love relationships or in the education of your children – but this equilibrium results more from static external factors rather than internal desires. When change becomes possible, it will come thick & fast. Anticipate proactively.  

SAGITTARIUS – Monitor the behavior of wayward younger family members more vigilantly. Retrograde Neptune worries that a secret life causes unseen problems that will break into full bloom after you have no chance to influence the situation. Forestall that by increased vigilance now.  

CAPRICORN – Distinguish between casual speech & loose talk. Retrograde Neptune warns that just because nobody challenges you does not mean that nobody objects. Bad habits now will place a hefty tax on your political capital later on. Speak more judiciously.  

AQUARIUS – Unseen political & professional enemies believe they have you trapped – and, for now, they are correct. Down the line, however, circumstances change – and Retrograde Neptune guarantees that there will be nothing they can do when you slam the door on your way out.  

PISCES –You want more money or a better position but bosses & clients say, “This is all that we will provide.” Persevere – down the line, Retrograde Neptune declares that a savvier player will see your worth & will give you a better deal. Maintain a poker face – same old same old!

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

2 A Trine is a harmonious aspect between or amongst planets transiting signs of like element (elements being Fire, Earth, Air & Water).

ARTICLE #7

Pluto conjuncts* Chariklo< conjuncts* 2001-KF77> in Capricorn from December 16, 2018 to February 20, 2020. A brash, bold, inexperienced newcomer can ascend far & fast against an entrenched practitioner by maneuvering against, and capitalizing upon, that entrenched practitioner’s hidden or disguised vulnerability, as they brazenly & mercilessly exploit loopholes which had started off as discrete & covert passages, but which became as exposed as a twisted & trampled chain-link fence. Once ensconced in such a sinecure, the newcomer’s new colleagues welcome the newcomer with the news that all such loopholes, passages, corridors & fences have already been fixed previous to their meeting, and, with deliberate irony (it is never irony when you do it on purpose), state that the newcomer will be happy to note that, upon their arrival, everything has returned . . . to business as usual.  

ARIES – New bosses now introduced within your infrastructure have only one role, which remains deliberately unstated: Disciplining those bosses who abused the latitude afforded them as professional superiors. Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 warn you that old bosses who resent these new bosses may attempt to use you as a pawn in their attempt to usurp the hegemony which is now being wrested from them. However, as long as you comply with professional orders dispensed by each & every one of your current bosses . . . nobody will be able to harm you.  

TAURUS – All cops already know that one cop who does the wrong thing in a flamboyantly conspicuous & flagrant manner reflects negatively on all cops. That being said, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 will introduce a new type of cop who will be able to address what is wrong about what that one cop flamboyantly & flagrantly did without addressing the reality . . . of that one cop. The blue wall of political correctness!  

GEMINI – Investors who throw money at the latest new marijuana stock IPO do not know how to invest – they are merely thrilled to death that they can legally invest in marijuana! Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 state that this only proves that such “investors” are “investing” their money while stoned. To comprehend market fundamentals requires that the analyst plumb all relevant financial data – which is why “financial analyst,” like “stock broker” or “fund manager,” is a job, not something you do while doing bong hits, “Whoa! Look at that number change! (Did I lose money?)”  

CANCER – Because a spouse, business partner or rival will not voluntarily refrain from making arbitrary, reckless assertions which directly affect your family, budget or business, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 make it incumbent upon you to ascertain crisis points before they manifest so that you may then dictate terms in the form of seeking voluntary consensus. Give spouse, business partner or rival no opportunity to extrapolate disastrous decisions flippantly because you neglected to act proactively.  

LEO – It already wasted more time than you wanted to use to get rid of colleagues or employees who used reckless shortcuts to engage in sharp practice. Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 urge you strongly to review what signals you missed regarding these now departed colleagues or employees (good riddance!) so that you may prevent their “successors” from every setting foot in the door.  

VIRGO – The espousal of former U.S. President George W. Bush of a “preemptive first strike” within the unilateralism of the so-called Bush Doctrine horrified masses of people already convinced of the inherent immorality of warfare. However, regarding sports teams facing very specific nemeses & individual troublemaking rivals, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 tempt & in fact exhort coaches & leadership amongst the players to find ways to call out those who intend to interrupt your winning game plan in the hopes that such jerks will say something that gets them ejected before the game even begins.  

LIBRA – Whoever they may be, whether family members, local politicians, realtors, organized criminals, the point is moot: Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 declare that certain individuals in your family, neighborhood, city, state, province or country are committed to tearing your homeland apart through bitter, protracted hostilities. You can do nothing – there is no peace to keep – so stay on the sidelines & wait. Lament, “Judas was a scoundrel – Pontius Pilate was an appointed politician.” Codify, and remain committed to, your political neutrality.  

SCORPIO – Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 denotes that certain employees will willfully misinterpret whatever you instruct or say for the sole purpose of opposing you legally as aggressively as possible. Deploy to a very specific proxy the exclusive right within your company to handle those such certain individuals.  

SAGITTARIUS – All sorts of macroeconomic phenomena – catastrophic currency deflation, a sudden spike in interest rates, the change of ownership of property which you rent, a medical emergency, litigation – could conspire to make even your most considerable financial savings absolutely worthless. Conversely, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 encourage innovative ways to diversify beyond a split of money into investments, 401K, IRA, high-yield savings, savings & checking account. How much cash do you hold in your home? How many, and how much, international currencies, do you hold in cash? What instruments can you convert despite the depreciation or appreciation of currency? Implement cruder as well as more sophisticated strategies for every eventuality. Do more research.  

CAPRICORN – Whereas, before, when your approval or disapproval could bring about permanent instantaneous change that would establish individual careers or destroy people irrevocably, Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 directly & personally warn you that, although it may have the exact same capacity to establish or destroy others, such approval or disapproval also has the concomitant ability . . . to establish or to destroy you. You now have even more skin in the game!  

AQUARIUS – If you have somehow managed to save any one of a fair number of key employees that kept the wheels of your professional machine moving from the psychotic downsizing of a truly draconian boss, then Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 still implore you to forget any self-congratulations. Such bosses regret such decisions & now silently plan to execute a plan even more disastrous. Remind this sociopath devoid of institutional memory of what your company needs & why on a routine, if not daily, basis.  

PISCES – The scale of financial windfall from certain business clients is not borne of generosity but in fact extortion, as Pluto, Chariklo & 2001-KF77 warn that those certain business clients want you to work with them to the exclusion of those long-term clients who, although they pay you much less, have paid your expenses & profits for years. Do you remain loyal or abandon ship? In the end, those certain business clients view your actions as two sides of the same coin – they intend to get rid of your competition & to pay you less & less all the time. (The bottom line? You must determine how you can survive on your own terms . . . in any & every eventuality.)  

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

> 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.

ARTICLE #8

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.
