Chiron^ conjunct1 Mercury in Aries squares2 Sappho< in Cancer opposite3 Pholus> in Capricorn, as Uranus in Taurus trines4 Aphidas! in Virgo trines4 Pholus> in Capricorn, while 2003-CO1* in Capricorn squares2 the Sun in Aries opposite3 the Full Blue Libra Moon on April 19, 2019. Youthful rebellion complicates savvy sophisticated gender conflict. That being said, two types of older (white) men now predominate: One who would be insulted if others refused to acknowledge that they know all the players & all the tricks & can therefore dictate all the terms; and one who doesn’t need to prove anything at all because they embody & exude absolute class.  

ARIES – Are you starting an argument about something specific – money, the car, unwashed dishes, dishonest answers to straightforward questions? Are you starting an argument, just because you are angry? Are you arguing because somebody else argues with you? Whatever the reason, Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon denote that arguments drag you down. Demonstrate maturity by uplifting the tenor of the dialogue with innovative solutions.  

TAURUS – Competitors interrupt you because they intend to thwart your attempts to demonstrate not only knowledge but, in fact, rare skills, to power brokers. Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon encourage you not to let such low-minded interference throw you off your rhythm. Realistically, power brokers either care or they don’t. Do your thing without gauging your ability to influence your audience.  

GEMINI – Don’t mirror an intellectual adversary who becomes emotional during a discussion where you both disagree. Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon remind you that you are secure in what you know because you have material reasons for why you know it. Do other people have material reasons for what they claim to know – or are they just ego-bound?  

CANCER – Feminist & masculinist histrionics interfere with discussions that do not overtly invoke gender. If you are discussing gender issues per se, that is another thing – but Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon declare that, if you are not, you will all get nowhere if you interject discussions of gender where they do not belong.  

LEO – Whether you are in the legal or law enforcement profession, or whether you are simply attempting to come to a logical, rational decision, Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon state that you will not come to any useful conclusion if you allow those in your charge to answer straightforward questions with irrelevant bluster. Explain, “Your options are ‘Yes,’ or ‘No.’”  

VIRGO – Parents of teenage boys: Talk with sympathetic teachers & coaches who are well aware of your son’s, and any other parents’ sons, propensities for mischief, vandalism, alcohol, drugs and, more broadly, trouble. Before police plant their own undercover agents where your son might be getting into trouble, Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon assert that it is in your own & such guardians’ collective interests to have your own spies on location ready to intercede should circumstances become problematic, harmful or dangerous.  

LIBRA – Self-appointed genius business partners, especially men, place too much faith in their ability to persuade skeptics, especially women slightly biased against such glib, self-centered men. Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon encourage you to cut off such smug self-appointed geniuses to downplay exaggerated assertions. If such business partners fail to take the hint, address them directly, “We’ll discuss this in private.”  

SCORPIO – Tell nosy female employees to leave rookie employees alone. Rookie employees need to find their way around the block without interference – which is all that Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon say such nosy females can provide: Interference. Nip this mischief in the bud.  

SAGITTARIUS – Writers: Craft a science fiction short story about a strip club in the future based upon an acute distortion of the biological mechanism of the species as a result of advanced permutations in the economic order. Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon declare that you can write graphic pornography which is not pornographic at all – remember Kilgore Trout’s short story in Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions about a planet where food becomes obsolete but where that planet’s pornographic movies featured closeups of American families chewing on Thanksgiving dinner? Make glib social commentary seem like a wicked vice. Max Headroom has an orgasm!  

CAPRICORN – You may have your doubts about a definitive decision that your spouse or partner would like to execute but you have no clear alternative. Therefore, if you really wish to delay your spouse or partner’s decision, Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon will require that you address that spouse or partner with these doubts without implying or stating that your spouse or partner is stupid. Impart, “I’m not sure what you are trying to achieve.”  

AQUARIUS – Dana Schutz’s recent exhibit at the Friedrich Petzel Gallery in New York City’s Chelsea depicted interesting gender types. Young men were aboriginal warriors. Young women trained at the gym. Old men were unhealthy bureaucrats in suits. Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon ponder that Schutz forged interesting & useful modern archetypes. Take a look – and ask yourself who you should choose to emulate.  

PISCES – Account for all your financial commitments, prioritizing your children & property, before considering either new romantic alliances or political opportunities. Chiron, Mercury, Sappho, Pholus, Uranus, Aphidas, 2003-CO1, the Sun & the Full Blue Libra Moon remind you that you only have so much money & time. If you overleverage yourself, you are foolish; if you overleverage yourself at your children’s expense, you are sinful. Be highly practical before “golden opportunities” roll along.

^ 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.  

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

> 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.  

! Aphidas, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Saturn & Neptune, was discovered in December 1999 and named in October 2017. The centaur Phorbas, disgusted because his fellow centaur had passed out, drunk, rather than fighting the Lapiths during the wedding feast of Pirithous, killed Aphidas with a javelin, with black blood pouring from Aphidas’s throat into his wine cup. For information on how to interpret Aphidas, formerly 1999-XX143, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

* 2003-CO1 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on February 1, 2003. The orbit of 2003-CO1 commences just beyond the orbit of Saturn as it crosses over the orbit of Uranus & Neptune.

ARTICLE #2

Saturn conjuncts@ Amycus* conjuncts@ the South Node$ in Capricorn from April 1 to October 24, 2019. Bosses leverage all their hierarchical & psychological advantages over other people to infect them with bitterly jocular sadism. To condone such sadism is cowardice. To emulate such sadism is barbarism.  

ARIES – Saturn, Amycus & the South Node insist that extremely mean bosses now say & do even meaner things not because they hate you or your colleagues – but because they hate themselves. When they wake up, their hangover will torture them!  

TAURUS – Because certain current perpetrators are so vicious, cunning & unrepentant towards the cops who restrain & arrest them, certain cops currently have good reason to treat perpetrators extremely harshly. Are those cops treating those perpetrators within the boundaries of the law? Some are & some are not – but, either way, Saturn, Amycus & the South Node confirm that the videotapes which form the basis of this discussion will horrify & shock absolutely everybody.  

GEMINI – While a stock market correction itself may not be overdue, Saturn, Amycus & the South Node note that certain perennial blue-chip stocks & companies, including General Electric & Boeing, have lost both market cap & their good public reputation as they warn, “Other paper tigers are out there.“ 

CANCER – You originally attracted your spouse & partners because you impressed them. Now that they take you for granted in abusive, insulting ways, Saturn, Amycus & the South Node give you license to inform them, “The familiarity of contempt works both ways – but I would never treat you in the hostile way that you treat me!” Upgrade the quality of this reciprocity.

LEO – You already told an ambitious & skilled yet hostile employee that they will make more enemies than friends if they walk around the workplace with the attitude that they are smarter than everybody else. Did they listen? Saturn, Amycus & the South Node will answer this question . . . in no uncertain terms.  

VIRGO – You’ve rebuked teenagers for expressing sarcasm to you – but now, they express unvarnished contempt. To prevent matters from getting worse, Saturn, Amycus & the South Node advise that you explain to these teenagers, “If you wish to improve your current situation, you must treat your elders, as well as everybody else, with some very basic respect.”  

LIBRA – Your office door is closed – one must enter at their own peril! Are you being needlessly hostile? Of course not – Saturn, Amycus & the South Node explain that the office door is closed because you are minding your own business. Step out of your office when you feel positive – to show others that you feel positive. Otherwise . . . hibernate.  

SCORPIO – In nature, the Scorpion that does not release its poison, poisons itself. What this means is that when you release your poison, which you must do to save your own life, you must choose somebody worthy of receiving it – and Saturn, Amycus & the South Node demand that you take this responsibility seriously.  

SAGITTARIUS – When you spend your money, especially on luxury items like hotel service, quality restaurants, high-end cocktails or limited-edition coffee-table books & esoteric music, Saturn, Amycus & the South Node advise you to tell the merchant, “Hey! I’m spending money on your wares – and I don’t spend my money on everything. This better be good –”  

CAPRICORN – Read Libra & Scorpio. If you are in a hostile mood, stay at home & do not go out in public. If, however, you do go out in public, Saturn, Amycus & the South Node remind you not to be mean to everybody just because you are in a hostile mood – be mean only to those who insist upon making everybody else feel miserable by behaving like selfish jerks.  

AQUARIUS – You finally meet, face to face, somebody who at your place of employment who treated you rudely because you only dealt with them by telephone. Saturn, Amycus & the South Node encourage you to make light of this encounter to begin, “Well, well, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!” Then, if this individual insists upon being rude to you directly – well, behave naturally!

PISCES – The perfection of certain impeccably sharp-edged, professional high-achieving associates is palpably, noxiously toxic. Saturn, Amycus & the South Node remind you that gossip will only make things worse. Distance yourself physically from their sound & their smell. Trust that, and associate with, other colleagues who are trying to repel the aura of such toxic people without mentioning their names.

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

ARTICLE #3

Mars transits Gemini from April 1 to May 16, 2019. Power brokers, whether official, unofficial or outright criminal, make extremely potent statements, whether through words or actions, both positive & negative, immediately upon Mars’ exit of Taurus. Public proclamations, manifestoes, large-scale theft, widespread rioting & looting, extremely aggressive preemptive arrests – all are intended to communicate a message. Invariably, as developments unfold, complications, whether within the infrastructure or amongst crowds of people wondering what the Hell is going on, slow everybody down, before law enforcement officials, lawyers for the state & judges force those power brokers who obey the law to amend their original statements as they contend with the public relations nightmare of those power brokers who do not obey the law. Consequently, those power brokers who obey the law amend those original statements so as to express disapproval without raising the ire of those of whom they disapprove.  

ARIES – Whether in your official capacity as some sort of professional or your unofficial capacity as Hobbesian street thug, Mars in Gemini will make you legally responsible for the actions of those who obey your direct orders.  

TAURUS – Mars in Gemini signifies that you must guard against street theft. Keep valuables off your person & at home. Ensure that building security & your home video surveillance system is working – burglars will prove easier to catch than street thugs. Also, be alert – if you don’t succumb to the element of surprise, you may walk away unscathed.  

GEMINI – Agree to make public statements on behalf of political power brokers. Mars in Gemini may yield valuable experience if you accept this initial opportunity, as it will be necessary to make follow-up public statements throughout this cycle. Have confidence – you can do this.  

CANCER – Executives, managers: Delegate authority to various managers beneath you to announce new policy throughout your organization. However, Mars in Gemini adds that, for everybody to whom you delegate, you must also have an ally in that group who will report back to you what your explicit delegate said – and whether that explicit delegate succeeded.  

LEO – Relatively new clients intend to turn all your protocol upside-down as they dispatch the most complex, complete professional criticism that you have ever heard. Should you cooperate? In reply, Mars in Gemini declares that the longer you have been in business, the easier it will be for you to recognize when clients are trying to intimidate you to gain the upper hand in negotiations. How vociferously have long-term clients complained? Take this new client’s “initiation ceremony” with a grain of salt.  

VIRGO – Publicly challenge bosses or clients who try to take full credit for services that you personally performed & for product that you personally created. This is not a question of whether or not you worked for hire – Mars in Gemini insists that somebody is trying to take that which does not belong to them. Whatever the consequences of your current challenge, challenge them – a lot of people will be keeping score from this point forward.  

LIBRA – A partner, gung-ho about launching their pet agenda, has not thought through the consequences of launching it. Mars in Gemini guarantees that this agenda will be challenged, and very soon. Once again, it is your role in life to tell this partner the consequences of their words & actions – consequences which this partner prefers to ignore. Expect – then disabuse them of – their rationalizations. Negotiate intelligent solutions.  

SCORPIO – You cannot put yourself in a position of asking yourself whether the new employee who took action at your workplace against your financial or professional interests did so with or without guile or deceit. Mars in Gemini demands that you simply protect those interests in an impersonal & professional way. Declare no wars. Burn no bridges.  

SAGITTARIUS – Writers: Are you ready to sell your novel or screenplay? If so, then Mars in Gemini urges you to get a press kit, cover letter, manuscript or sample ready to launch. If not – get a friend of yours to read it to tell you what they think.  

CAPRICORN – Bosses, parents, teachers: A punitive threat sends chills down the spines of your employees, children & students – but Mars in Gemini insists that such punitive threat is necessary because somebody out there intends to break the rules, the laws & the commands of God almighty. Lay it on the line.  

AQUARIUS – Musicians: Kind of cocky about your abilities, aren’t you? Mars in Gemini urges you to emulate the brag of brags in “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” by the Charlie Daniels Band, “Johnny said, ‘Devil, just come on back, if you ever wanna try again, because I done told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been.’” No mercy for fools & demons!  

PISCES – You feel anxiety because you need to invest a lot of money & time in a plan to help a backward or wayward family member which may not work. Mars in Gemini declares that it will help you immensely, and will also facilitate the plan, if you get that backward or wayward family member to acknowledge your Herculean & expensive efforts – and maybe even to cooperate with you.

ARTICLE #4

Cyllarus@ conjuncts* the North Node$ in Cancer from December 29, 2018 to May 19, 2019. People of average height & weight involuntarily show unusually, extremely big & tall people overt respect because atavistic biological cues force them to acknowledge the dominant animal in their environment. In truth, people of average height & weight should show that respect to those accomplished individuals in the public who are, as a result of their knowledge of boxing or the martial arts, lethal human weapons – but such people of average height & weight have no means to identify such lethal human weapons. The law, however, does, and demands that such lethal human weapons register with the state as to prevent them from using their tactics of sport or defense in any one of a number of situations under penalty of incarceration. In all instances, such big people, tall people & lethal human weapons all must behave the same way in public – gently, deftly & quietly, with overt deference to authority, in a suave, accommodating & classy way. They are, contrary to the juvenile rudeness of Charles Barkley, “role models,” because they can cause too much damage, to themselves & to others, if they refuse to behave properly.  

ARIES – You worry about an unusually big family member who does not pursue their self-interest aggressively enough. However, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node reminds you that this family member is well aware that, if they did make hard & fast aggressive moves, they would intimidate everybody. They can’t pursue what they want as aggressively as others because they are simply not “average” – which is a blessing, not a curse, in disguise.  

TAURUS – NBA All-Stars cannot drink alcohol or attend nightclubs in public without risking that some instigator will approach to start trouble, a fight or a lawsuit. In this context, even though you might not be a point guard for Golden State, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node warns you that you are more vulnerable to similar threats than you believe. Shun social spots where low types try to bring their moral superiors down.  

GEMINI – You genuinely believe that you never have enough money – but you may in fact routinely have more cash & a greater net worth than anybody else in the room. Should this change your behavior? Cyllarus conjunct the North Node replies, “Not necessarily.” But are you aware of how others perceive how you handle your money? Veil your financial wealth.  

CANCER – At some point in your life, you earned the reputation as a really sweet guy or charming, proper lady who hangs out with a bunch of crass, selfish, petty jerks. Cyllarus conjunct the North Node now asks, “Why do need such counterpoint?” People will understand the good you have to offer without displaying . . . meaningful comparisons. Nobility per se!  

LEO – There is one very noble & spiritual person in the infrastructure to whom you would like to give more work or business, not only to help them succeed, and not only because they are capable, but because you appreciate their singular wisdom. Not to fret, says Cyllarus conjunct the North Node – as long as there is enough money & work, this individual is happy. This individual is in it for the “intangibles.”  

VIRGO – A local mom who takes a political position on school board meetings or in the local neighborhood is a noble statesperson – but Cyllarus conjunct the North Node emphasizes that she is no politician: She is truly a mom who will do anything in the service of her children.  

LIBRA – A certain female boss or manager who is a dominating force at your professional workplace is not a feminist. Cyllarus conjunct the North Node denotes that this powerful woman does not want others to relate to her based upon a political stance but only as she self-evidently is. This female boss or manager does not intend to edit other people – she intends to lead them.

SCORPIO – Whatever your relationship to industry regulators, your self-evident capability by itself connotes that you are a personage of considerable experience, deep accomplishments & vast influence. However, because you as a rule must oversee so many problems, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node declares that it is na´ve to try to appear perfect. Aspire only to be on the same page with those setting policy for the future.  

SAGITTARIUS – Cyllarus conjunct the North Node posits, “The Criminal Equation.” Vice yields to crime yields to law enforcement yields to seized assets. See no speak no hear no evil. Read the money launderer’s box score in the paper of record. Stay out of trouble.  

CAPRICORN – Notice how not only suave business partners but also classy spouses get respect, as well as what they requested? You have the capacity to demonstrate class, too. Cyllarus conjunct the North Node asks, “Why don’t you?”  

AQUARIUS – You will have several opportunities to enjoy the cuisine of extremely accomplished chefs & bartenders under the current influence of Cyllarus conjunct the North Node. Do not limit yourself.  

PISCES – Children choose whom they love – and if they love you, Cyllarus conjunct the North Node will make you bigger than life. Don’t “try” – children will decide whether they love you or somebody else. Accept if one group does not love you – and accept if another group does.  

@ Cyllarus, a centaur planet that traverses between Uranus & Pluto, was discovered in October 1998 & named in June 2003. Cyllarus, the noble husband of Hylonome, was killed by a random spear from an unknown hand in the battle between the Centaurs & the Lapiths. Upon witnessing the death of Cyllarus, Hylonome committed suicide by jumping on the spear that killed her husband in order to die with him. For further information on how to interpret Cyllarus, formerly 1998-TF35, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below. 

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

ARTICLE #5

Saturn conjunct1 Amycus! in Capricorn sextiles2 Neptune in Pisces from December 29, 2018 to August 9, 2019. Not everybody wants to be a boss. Being a boss sometimes requires more intelligence, but more often requires taking responsibility. Bosses, however, oftentimes assume that everybody wants to be the boss, and therefore congratulate themselves for being, by far, the best of the lot. Therefore, in those instances where the boss talks down to the collected workforce in an official meeting, it is easy to see how an offhand comment by an employee makes the boss extremely embarrassed, as well as how the psychological embarrassment of the boss reflects back upon the collected workforce as hostile wrath, causing, amongst the collective workforce, directionless fear.  

ARIES – Bosses may be smarter (at least we hope) because bosses maintain significant responsibilities which effect everybody. However, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune are concerned that some bosses will treat everybody else as if they are stupid. This propensity will eventually correct itself, as peers of such bosses do not want a jerk to create animosity amongst the populace. Don’t get aggravated – very soon circumstances will paint that arrogant player in that role as a vicious clown worthy of mockery. Risible!  

TAURUS – A loudmouth from the ignorant masses who does not know the laws or the rules declares the laws & the rules irrelevant because, “Nobody obeys them anyway!” Saturn, Amycus & Neptune state that to call this loudmouth stupid only inspires an argument where all involved attempt to qualify that loudmouth’s intelligence. Don’t waste your time. Instead, smirk, while walking away, “Ever been arrested?”  

GEMINI – Your bosses are too busy, individually, jointly, severally & collectively, to consider your net worth – even, as now, when you are doing well. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune therefore advise you, “Don’t broadcast to them.” Stay under the radar.  

CANCER – Spouses & partners who disparage discussion of spirituality praise science & condemn superstition. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune recommend you upbraid their arrogance. Challenge, “Did Einstein know what happened to man’s consciousness after death? Is that a cryptic scientific conundrum?”

LEO – Several marmot institutional bureaucrats deeply frustrate an ambitious & skilled yet hostile employee by withholding information from them until they get permission to release it. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune impel you to calm this bridge-burner down before they make permanent enemies. Explain, “They are just doing their jobs – although their personalities suit them for their roles.” Try to get a laugh.  

VIRGO – Punish a teenager who gives backtalk to your spouse. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune agree that a weekend indoors away from all their friends is an equitable antidote to overactive self-esteem . . . which disrespects authority.  

LIBRA – Sequester yourself from employees who do not share your heavy professional burdens. Saturn, Amycus & Neptune note that you have too much on your mind to be gracefully social & friendly – so don’t try. However, remove yourself from circulation so that nobody will notice you & accuse you of behaving antisocially.  

SCORPIO – Whether you are a boss, a banker, a lover or a parent, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune unequivocally warn that those to whom you speak will invariably shy away from you . . . if you speak to them so meanly. Have a heart, Scorpio!  

SAGITTARIUS – When buying high-end furniture & medical accessories for your family & home, you must be demanding with merchants & doctors – but Saturn, Amycus & Neptune confirm that you must be tougher & more unyielding with family members. Discern fear from caprice. Assert, “This is for your benefit & it is seriously expensive – get with the program now!”  

CAPRICORN – Saturn, Amycus & Neptune denote that many friends, peers, neighbors, cashiers & merchants to whom you speak & with whom you do business find you haughty, patronizing & insulting. Ask somebody you trust, “How do I appear to strangers?” Soften the tone.  

AQUARIUS – Many people who handle your money, including the accounting department at work, employees at the bank & the federal government, arrogantly make decisions without any explanation. In situations where you can get that explanation, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune recommend that you get one – even if you have to pull teeth.  

PISCES – Some professional superiors & associates do not realize how deeply they insult you. One day, Saturn, Amycus & Neptune predict that you will respond with protest. Wait until such individuals’ behaviors are self-evidently intolerable by objective opinion in a court of law. Neptune the Sea God dispatches a tsunami!

! 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.

ARTICLE #6

Jupiter transits Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019. Hordes of lapsed Catholics, including generations of those who spent decades indulging in sex, drugs, high finance, high technology & rock’n’roll, will begin to feel the need to reconcile themselves with the Catholicism in which they were raised, including the need to hear the Mass, with the Liturgy of the Word followed by the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Such need arises not as a result of any intellectual or philosophical reconciliation with the Catholic faith, because many such individuals will not have feel any such reconciliation whatsoever. Such need transcends mere nostalgia to experience what no longer exists, whether book stores, record stores, block parties or summer camps sponsored by a Catholic Church honoring its commitment both to teaching service to its own teenagers & to providing service to the local indigent. These lapsed Catholics experience the afterimage of the inculcation of their own indoctrination, often in the form of codified, homogenized prayer – for, as Dion Fortune asserts in The Mystical Qabbalah, “These monks frequently bring to the working of the Mass a very high degree of magical power, as any psychic can testify. It is the ensouling of an astral form with spiritual force which is the real act of Transubstantiation. It is in the knowledge of these things, and in the possession of organized bodies of men and women trained in their use in the encloistered Orders, that the strength of the One Catholic and Apostolic Church lies.”  

ARIES – Jupiter in Sagittarius warns that two useless phenomena will try to stop you: Excuses & guilt. To combat excuses: Consider, “Whether you say you can or you can’t, you are correct.” Decide that you are capable. To combat guilt: You were allowed to make mistakes yesterday because you are allowed to do great things tomorrow.  

TAURUS – Psychic, spiritual, religious & New Age excursions into consciousness, extensive travel to foreign lands or reading deep, pure philosophy alienate lesser minds. Selling property to immigrant transplants alienates poorer natives. Both provide limitless opportunities under the current influence of Jupiter in Sagittarius – but you must be able to stand your ground against hostile forces.  

GEMINI – A foreign spouse or international business partner can bring you fabulous luck. However, to capitalize on such luck, Jupiter in Sagittarius demands that you communicate to stick-in-the-mud bosses exactly what is going on . . . when they really need to know.  

CANCER – Working with foreign clients or immigrant employees & colleagues can empower you with skills that many in your professional cohort will lack. However, Jupiter in Sagittarius declares that the flip side of wielding such knowledge involves repeated instances of “foot-in-mouth” disease. Accept that embarrassment is a sign that your heart is in the right place.  

LEO – Salespeople: Jupiter in Sagittarius flatly denotes that your ability to drum up business – which is indeed considerable – will do you & your company no good unless you have allies in y our company’s infrastructure who will expedite the delivery of goods & services that you sell with but a minute’s notice.  

VIRGO – Your family can now enjoy unprecedented happiness & contentment – but Jupiter in Sagittarius demands that you must make your spouse, with all their alienating idiosyncrasies & outside associates, a part of that family. Pipe dream: Can you afford a brand new house where you can all start a brand new chapter together?  

LIBRA – You have an inspirational message to deliver – but that message is lost on work colleagues & employees. Jupiter in Sagittarius insists that you know your audience. Preach to those who have never heard anything like what you now have to say.  

SCORPIO – You’ve paid off all your huge loans & outstanding debt. Now, Jupiter in Sagittarius congratulates you as all the money now flows to you. Put it in the bank – and disregard the whining lovers & children who only want you to dissipate your hard-earned money on their caprice & whimsy. Consolidate.  

SAGITTARIUS – Your self-development & caring for your loved ones are not mutually exclusive propositions, but rather “master-slave.” That is, Jupiter in Sagittarius states that you can only help loved ones if you take care of yourself & your needs first – and that includes your need to create whatever bona-fide creative masterpiece that you happen to envision.  

CAPRICORN – Protect yourself from “homeowners” & “business people” who failed arithmetic in third grade. Jupiter in Sagittarius states that you will benefit when less capable & less disciplined people fail – as long as they don’t drag you down with them.  

AQUARIUS – Colleagues don’t want to hear your philosophical ideas – they want to know what you know about petty ongoing workplace “developments.” Jupiter in Sagittarius indicates that the real question is amongst groups of strangers who meet to hear what people like you have to say. In such venues . . . you are the star of the show!  

PISCES – Current & new bosses will make extra demands upon you because they know that you can handle the job. Jupiter in Sagittarius instructs you to do the work & to take the overtime, raises & promotions – but one caveat: Absolutely refuse to work when you are sick.

ARTICLE #7

Saturn conjuncts@ Amycus* in Capricorn from January 9 to December 30, 2019. A proletariat who aggressively & publicly challenges a political leader, corporate executive, business owner or boss is an insect. A political leader, corporate executive, business owner or boss who harshly & viciously insults, punishes or incarcerates a proletariat with outright personal invective is a sadist. That proletariat, truly an insect, is a fool, worthy of the least humane form of elimination allowed by a civilized society. That boss, a sadist & a sociopath, is outright dangerous, and requires careful monitoring not only by law enforcement, but by anybody who wants to protect their job, reputation, body & life.  

ARIES – Only Scorpios can be meaner than Aries. However, Saturn conjunct Amycus signifies that bosses are now acting really mean – most of the time, to those who can’t be mean back to them. Of course, what goes around comes around – but, in this instance, you are going to have to wait. Until the time comes . . . suck it up.  

TAURUS – Cops gladly arrest perpetrators who are clearly guilty. Even then, many people want to know, “Are cops treating those perpetrators within the boundaries of the law?” Don’t jump to conclusions – Saturn conjunct Amycus declares that sometimes cops have good reason to treat perpetrators harshly. Stay out of harm’s way – unless you wish to submit to punishment yourself.  

GEMINI – If you walk around the office with a scowl on your face five minutes after CNBC, Fox Business & Google News announce that the stock market lost 1200 points, everybody who sees you will add two & two together. Saturn conjunct Amycus therefore advises that those Twins with stock market portfolios never to look at stock market results when they must continue to work with other human beings.  

CANCER – Enlightened, erudite spouse & partners will challenge you with recondite, esoteric knowledge. Unenlightened spouse & partners will insult your intelligence harshly. In either instance, Saturn conjunct Amycus states that it is not a question of what you earned or not: You are worthy of respect.  

LEO – Saturn conjunct Amycus encourages you to tell an ambitious & skilled yet hostile employee – if you like them – that they will make more enemies than friends if they walk around the workplace with the attitude that they are smarter than everybody else.  

VIRGO – Saturn conjunct Amycus teaches teenagers sarcasm. Nip this trend in the bud fast, “None of your lip, youngster!”  

LIBRA – Heavy familial & professional burdens make you psychologically defensive & sarcastic. For that reason, Saturn conjunct Amycus recommends that you do not make yourself too available. Keep your office door closed – as a rule.  

SCORPIO – Read Aries. Yes, Scorpio, when competing for the title, is the king & queen of mean. Saturn conjunct Amycus therefore instructs you, “Unless you really want to be mean . . . be nice. Be very nice.” Because, if you want to be mean . . . nobody will be able to stop you.  

SAGITTARIUS – Spending money on mediocre products & services of any type is an insult to the elevated skills & hard work with which you earned it. Saturn conjunct Amycus demands that you, the Archer, treat spending money as an act of absolutely astounding genius – because you, more than anybody else, can.  

CAPRICORN – Saturn conjunct Amycus, in Saturn’s fall in your 1st house of self & identity, makes you seem not only severe, but, in fact, aggressively hostile. This works well if you are a prosecutor or in law enforcement – but what if you sell ice cream to kids? “Mommy, mommy, that man who sells ice cream is so, so mean!” If you are not trying to arrest or to convict anybody . . . for God’s sake, try to smile!  

AQUARIUS – It is very easy for other people at your place of employment to treat you rudely if you can only deal with them by telephone – and they never see your face. Saturn conjunct Amycus suggests that, one day in the future, you will meet some such individuals in person who had preferred to treat you rudely with the excuse that you were just one other person whom they did not know. Well, let them accrue culpability – as for yourself, remain above the fray with charm & limitless grace.  

PISCES – With certain impeccably sharp-edged professional associates, there is no need for questions because they have all the answers! Well, Saturn conjunct Amycus replies, “Well, excuse me!” Groucho Marx once said that he would never join a club that would have him as a member – but even Groucho would have nothing to worry about here. “I’m sorry, I was just looking for the bathroom – you just get back to your little conversation . . .” Wow!

ARTICLE #8

Chiron* transits Aries
from February 19, 2019 to April 14, 2027.

In Part One of Acting Out, contemporary French philosopher Bernard Stiegler describes his calling to the vocation – hence, “How I Became a Philosopher.” Only briefly mentioning his later work on technics inducing his core belief, “Man is a prosthetic being,” Stiegler interprets Aristotle’s assertion that man is a political animal according to how his fellow French philosopher Gilbert Simondon describes “individuation,” a binary process by which one accepts or rejects the values of a friend, the norms of a group, the platforms of a political party, the policy mandate of a nation. The existence of the friend, group, party or nation serves as fodder for one to accept or to reject, to affirm or to deny. Stiegler emphasizes that, in 99% of the cases, this process never ends – most people continue Simonden’s process of individuation until death.

Stiegler offers two significant exceptions:  

1) When Socrates drank the hemlock as a sentence for the two criminal acts of impiety & corruption of the youth, who, in so doing, transformed Simonden’s act of individuation into the invention of the practice of philosophy; and
2) When Stiegler himself, both in the Freudian context of rejecting psychotherapy, and reflecting the eponymous title of this book, “acts out,” transcending the diachronic identification process of individuation & embracing the Marxist mandate to transform being into becoming, by moving from the question of philosophy in potential to passer Ó l’acte, “the passage to the act” of philosophy . . . by committing armed robbery & spending five years in prison.  

ARIES – The mathematical discipline of calculus teaches that if you consistently approach the door in a wall by walking halfway to it, you will never cross the door’s threshold – meaning, of course, that you must, at some point, walk more than halfway. Well, Chiron in Aries quotes Aleister Crowley, “Do as thou will shall be the whole of the law.” Furthermore, as you ponder what Crowley says – and, for that matter, Crowley – you should also ponder the ending of “The Hollow Men,” by T.S. Eliot, “Between the desire and the spasm, Between the potency and the existence, Between the essence and the descent . . . falls the shadow.”  

TAURUS – Don’t know if you trust somebody? Stare into somebody’s eyes, as hard as you can, for as long as you can, until you feel, and you know, that you are “going back through the ages.” Chiron in Aries nods its head, “Now you know.”  

GEMINI – Many serial killers, such as Anders Breivik & “the Unabomber,” Theodore John Kaczynski, wrote extensively about the philosophical reasons why they eventually committed murder. Such works rationalize the act of murder as underwritten by intelligence – a rationalization which Chiron in Aries encourages you to reject. The heart teaches the brain to love or to hate. If your heart is teaching your brain to hate, heal your heart – do not let your heart manipulate your brain into debasing you into a weapon.  

CANCER – You may be a boss, you may be a leader, but you are always & forever a flesh & blood person who would never impersonalize yourself within your position of leadership – an attribute which makes employees & citizens absolutely love you. Paradoxically, Chiron in Aries declares that this puts you at a simultaneous advantage over, and a disadvantage to, rivals who never reveal their personalities as they execute their policies & decisions before followers & citizens who decidedly do not love them. Even so, you should be able to work with that. Know when your weakness is your strength. Do not allow adversaries to use your strength against you.  

LEO – Regarding legal issues, applications to live and to do business in other countries and forays into higher education. Chiron in Aries insists that you cannot succeed alone. If you don’t have people working in your behalf, it means that you are outnumbered & must retreat – it’s that simple. If you don’t have any allies, get some!  

VIRGO – Those who declare war must prepare themselves to fight unto death – because war involves killing. Whether you live in a suburb or city undergoing a building boom which routinely declares eminent domain, or in a ghetto divided into gangs, war, nevertheless, exists. Chiron in Aries warns you of two things: 1) Make no threats that you will not back up with explicit violence – which means make no threats at all. 2) Expect that all threats of violence, explicit or implicit, against you are & must be real – then be guided accordingly. Also: Take note of which of your neighbors are most likely packing a weapon – and why.  

LIBRA – Unlike the recent transit of Uranus in Aries, as you dealt with egoistic sociopathic genius partners, you now must alternatively baby-sit & coach an extremely soulful bi-polar genius partner. Chiron in Aries quotes from the Chairman of the Board himself, Frank Sinatra, “Being an 18-karat manic-depressive, and having lived a life of violent emotional contradictions, I have an overacute capacity for sadness as well as elation. Whatever else has been said about me personally is unimportant – when I sing, I believe, I'm honest.” Therefore, when your partner all of a sudden goes into a Miles Davis Kind of Blue mood, snap them out of it, “That’s life! Do it your way.”  

SCORPIO – New employees, unlike recently departed self-appointed geniuses, will not be recalcitrant at all. Indeed, Chiron in Aries denotes that these new employees will be taking their cues very directly from you. If you send mixed messages, you will get terrible work product & service. Communicate clearly what you want & need – new employees will provide exactly what you will demand. Binary but polite!  

SAGITTARIUS – As treacherous as a whirling dervish, you are now a devastating centrifugal fulcrum of pure creativity! Whether you are a writer, actor, filmmaker, artist or musician, Chiron in Aries demands that you create as many brand-new forms of your craft so that free flow of energy can transmit unimpeded to a dazzled electrified audience. Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention play “Nine Types of Industrial Pollution” on Uncle Meat!

CAPRICORN – Harsh criticism of your spouse, family, fellow citizens, employees or self under the current influence of Chiron in Aries will ultimately manifest as a toxically replete reservoir of pure self-loathing. Don’t bang your head against the wall until you bleed. Forgive others. Forgive yourself.  

AQUARIUS – You don’t condone confrontation & aggression – instead, Chiron in Aries posits that you heartily champion those who bravely blaze trails to reverse the negativity of adversaries & opponents without inciting conflict with them. These adversaries & opponents want conflict with you because, should you engage in conflict, it would negate your message. Do not fall into this trap – all you need is love.  

PISCES – You cannot afford anybody else’s dreams, whether political ally or professional associate – you cannot even afford your own dreams! Of course, you should cultivate your dreams – but Chiron in Aries emphasize that, as a practical matter, you must simply save your money. Don’t spend your money on things that you cannot afford – and if you have to risk money on a longshot to see if it will successfully fulfill your dreams, realize that you cannot afford to gamble on unfulfilled dreams. Let gofundme.com go fund them! Know exactly what your dream costs – then you count the dollars in your hand. Dream with – not without – cash.

* 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 #9

Uranus transits Taurus from March 7, 2019 to April 25, 2026. Technological advancements, as well as tectonic shifts in geopolitics, cause intellectual elites to reappraise what exactly imbues, not only artistic achievements, such as books, artwork, music & theatre, but, in fact, money or currency itself, with value. Frequently, such analysis, whether about the first mass-produced novel in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter in 1850, the development of Cubism under Georges Braque & Pablo Picasso commencing with Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, the segue from Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings in the 1950s to Andy Warhol’s silkscreens in the 1960s, the transition from vinyl to compact discs to streaming onto the iPod at the end of the last Millennium or ongoing attempts to align all international currency via Bitcoin & block-chain technology, focuses on issues of scalable reproduction & distribution. During each such permutation, however, theorists & critics discuss not the “innovation” or “evolution” of the medium in question, but the nature of the medium itself – the same both before & after, but the same what? And, while certain writers & artists review the past, such as when E.L. Doctorow studied advancements in modern medicine & photography during the American Civil War in The March, when Jeffrey Eugenides asserted that the natural narrative of the novel is a bourgeois woman’s search for a husband in The Marriage Plot or when Frank Stella transitioned from wall sculptures back to flat paintings, the inquiry remains the same: What is a (book) (painting) (sculpture) (play) (song) (album) (coin)?  

ARIES – Uranus in Taurus in your second house of money makes your finances vulnerable to erratic fluctuations. When money flows in, segregate profit to high-yield instruments to consolidate gains immediately. Protect against loss by buying long-term insurance for property, equipment & extra health benefits, short-term insurance on travel whenever offered, and conservative warranties on any & all items that you will eventually replace.  

TAURUS – A signifying flair to the wardrobe which adorns your face – highlights in the hair, a bold moustache, occult-centric jewelry, a minor league baseball cap – draws positive attention & energy to your persona. Still, Uranus in Taurus connotes that you need not overdo it. The wacky world presents challenges of its own. Just be yourself.  

GEMINI – Accountants: Uranus in Taurus will teach you about every single way on earth that a human or computer can make an error with a number, whether in your favor, against your interests, or just plain rainbow trout, tutti frutti absurd. Why? To prepare you, over time, to bust a fraud for the ages.  

CANCER – Experienced bankers who have endured all sorts of actual & aborted innovations since the year 2000 offer endless, fascinating anecdotes about how their employer overcame countless failures of banking in the high-tech era. Uranus in Taurus denotes that such encounters will yield to you seminal ideas which answer the question, “What, exactly, is money?”  

LEO – Bosses stick assiduously to time-intensive work exercises because they learned that thorough processes lead to breakthroughs. Uranus in Taurus explains that such bosses will lose their jobs because that breakthrough never came – although the successful boss which follow them will eventually succeed as they first employ those same exact stubborn methods.  

VIRGO – Artists, writers, readers: Publication concerns the dissemination of the word. Uranus in Taurus demands that you distinguish between that which you publish – and email, a letter, a PowerPoint presentation, a book. Then, address the core question, “What is a book – and what is the value of that, or any, book?”  

LIBRA – Uranus in Taurus will befoul your 8th house of sex, drugs & peak experiences with the smell, taste & feel of decadence like New Orleans on a French Quarter crawl on New Year’s Eve. A sinful debauch can be forgiven – but do nothing genuinely immoral or illegal. Down & out on Bourbon Street the day after Mardis Gras at the beginning of Robert Stone’s A Hall of Mirrors!

SCORPIO – To tolerate an erratic partner who demands their way in all circumstances, like the protagonist husband & wife in African folklorist Amos Tutuolo’s Pauper, Brawler and Slanderer, no matter what is to tolerate a perpetual migraine. That being said, Uranus in Taurus warns that even the most placid partner will pull power moves against you out of a clear blue sky. Should you have seen it coming? In many cases, yes. Communicate more openly.  

SAGITTARIUS – Your diet & gym regimen not only influence but in fact underwrite your professional performance. Uranus in Taurus prescribes exercise at the gym during & instead of lunch. Eat something to tide you over, instead of accidentally dozing off at three in the afternoon. Oxygenate your blood & your brain to prevent dense matter from consolidating.  

CAPRICORN – The Goat’s passion for books gives them an outlet for the elastic personal experience of time. The Goat’s appreciation for painting allows a portal to experience the frozen moment of an era. Artists & connoisseurs: Uranus in Taurus invites the Goat to experience those books which demonstrate an elastic timeframe, such as Mark Helprin’s Winter’s Tale or Carlos Fuentes’ The Death of Artemio Cruz, as well as those works of art that put history in perspective, such as Willem deKooning’s Gotham News or Eric Fischl’s A Visit To/A Visit From, the Island. How can you yourself replicate & present the similar elasticity or plasticity of time?  

AQUARIUS – After your intellectual or worldly flights of pure adventure or fancy, you expect to touch down into your home, family or neighborhood to rest your weary wings on the ground, far from the high altitude of turbulent skies. Uranus in Taurus now smiles, “Little did you know in your absence that your home with your family in your neighborhood has transformed itself into an airport runway!” What does this mean? Learn to live life like a turtle – with your home on your back.  

PISCES – You will outright shock people when you assert the bald & blunt truth about them under the current influence of Uranus in Taurus. You intend to shock them. Usually, you mind your own business – but that is not working, either for you or the greater good. Watch out – they asked for it!

ARTICLE #10

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