Happy Satan or Saturnalia aka Merry Christmas

1280px-Escultura_Saturnalia_de_Ernesto_BiondiChristmas is derived from Saturnalia, a pagan holiday where Saturn gives gifts to his prisoners.

A lot of people pass away during December and January. From an astrological perspective, December is the month of Sagittarius (Jupiter) and Capricorn (Saturn). It’s my belief that Saturn (Satan, the Devil, Santa) is the overseer of planet Earth. Jupiter is a lucky, giving planet. Together, they are the Cornucopia of delight. Christmas is a pagan, Saturnalia holiday — a week long holiday of lawlessness and of course, we know Saturn is about social law! We are honoring Saturn, the warden of this planet, during this time. And as humans, we “play out” this myth with one another by giving gifts and forgiving sins, etc. It’s called Astrodrama. That is what Saturn is doing with us now: Giving us gifts, and forgiving our sins.

Man’s number is six, because the devil’s number is 666. I believe death is a “release” or relief from this prison planet but we’re programmed to survive to live out our sentence.

Death is a gift, from Saturn and Jupiter. It’s the one’s that are left behind to suffer the horror of such a great loss in their lives. Yeah, this is a horror show for anyone paying attention. *dry Capricornian chuckle* But I take peace in knowing that my dear loved ones, gone to heaven (space that has no time or physical boundaries) are happy, spiritually alive, and well. And we’ll reunite again.

Someone very important to me passed (was released) on December 24th. His suffering is over. Mine/Ours continues. But what an amazing day to go. To me, it shows how pure his spirit truly was and how gifted he is. I remember him everyday, but I’m glad to be able to honor him during this time. ~ Abella Arthur, Astrologer

Venus: Relationships (Libra-Aries) & Love (Taurus-Scorpio)

Note: I’m heterosexual, and this article is written with a personal blog perspective. While my writing could be applied to all forms of relating, this is what I know best and I tend to enjoy writing from experience.

Ask yourself these two questions:

  1. Do you want the relationship you’re currently in, or to be in one?
  2. Do you want to love the person you’re with, or be in love?

What are you (Aries) doing about it, to create and loving and vibrant relationship (Libra) for you and your person of interest?

The first question I’ve asked — asks for a commitment (Libra), and dedication (Taurus). The second question asks for vulnerability (Aries), and passion (Scorpio). Yes, a healthy Aries is vulnerable because they’re strong.

If you’ve noticed, I haven’t asked about having sex (Mars).

Frankly, I strongly believe (and astrology indicates this) if you don’t have #1 and #2 (Venus) first, then having #3 (Mars) is often a sure disaster. And while some people believe it takes a long time to love someone, I don’t agree. But I do think it can take a long time to see if someone is compatible, but that’s the logic side of Libra — not love (Taurus).

To be personal, I had sex fairly quickly (within two weeks) with my ex husband but we then became joined at the hip and we were together for 10 years. But the most important thing I discovered was that #1 — he wanted to be in a relationship AND #2 — he loved me rather quickly (love at first sight), so it made sense to have #3.

These days it seems like a lot of guys want to skip #1 and #2 for themselves, and go straight to #3 (Mars) BUT expect YOU to do #1 and #2 (Venus) all on your own. Waaaaa?? LOL Yeah buddy, it doesn’t work that way. Good try though. LOL

They don’t want to commit because it’s like a dating buffet out here on the internet and they’re abusing the nonsensical friends with benefits (fwb) arrangement aka FREE SEX. And they don’t want to be vulnerable, unless or in place of you being vulnerable because… eh, I haven’t figured that one out yet. Anyone know??

But the full package is Venus and Mars. That’s Venus combined with Mars. Venus without Mars, and Mars without Venus is not a full romantic relationship — it’s sex or it’s friendship but it’s not both.

“Careful consideration of your options and goals will lead to wiser choices at the times of activity, and a gradual transformation from self-preoccupation to becoming more aware of the rights and feelings of others will be a great step for you to make.” Source: Astromatrix

Not even the proverbial fwb person is really a friend. Why? Because at it’s core, this arrangement lacks respect. And your true friend will respect you, and vice versa. So if you’re respecting (2nd house – Taurus) yourself, your friend, and vice versa — you’re not having an fwb situation. Fwb is a misnomer. Yes, Venus is related to friendship and Mars is related to sex BUT if the man REALLY likes you (the logic part of Libra) — he’ll want more than just sex with you. He’ll want you all to himself (Aries). And he’ll focus on  Love (Taurus), and commitment(Libra). Fwb lacks love. Fwb is missing something. Fwb is seriously flawed, and like an aberration. Fwb is more of an Aquarius, 11th house, Uranian thing. An acquaintance. Fwb is a Mars-Uranus arrangement, that leaves the female (Venus) out of the picture. Her Venusian wants, and desires are left out of the equation. Uranian energy is discordant, and the fwb arrangement is inconjunct to Venus (Taurus) even though it appeals to a side of Venus (Libra trines Aquarius).

Anyway, fwb is like a whole other article or BOOK. Is there a book out there yet on this subject? Could be… lol

Mercury Pisces Retrograde 2013 / Rx: February to April Dates & Insights

Mercury is in Pisces 8° right now.
My Mercury is in Virgo at 8° (it’s in exact partile today). I am/will be experiencing a Mercury Rx Opposite Mercury transit.
And have been feeling / experiencing the effects for about a week now.

The shadow period is from the 9th to 22nd. We’re already in it! Double AND Triple check EVERYTHING.

The Retrograde (Rx) is happening between Feb 23 (19°) to March 17 (5°). And we are hardest hit, March 1 to 10th!

Mercury rules communication (spoken, phone, email, snail mail, written, etc), trade, sales, contracts, siblings, and travel (over short distances).

It’s a time when things traditionally slow down — including sales so pull out all your advertising mojo to make the sale.

This is also a great time to think about your dreams, meditate, do art, and commune with nature and animals.

When the planet Mercury appears to travel backwards, any word with re: in front of it is what we’re likely to experience — reward, renew, refresh, revisit, redo, renegotiate, redress, etc… In some cases, a retrograde is very welcome, and necessary. Similar to when rain and snow helps cleanse the land, and grow food — reigniting life — a retrograde can also cause havoc.

We are also, transit wise, experiencing Mercury Conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer, wounding healer, and where we receive wounds from others). It’s a good time to mind your words and thoughts, and keep them healing and helpful — for and to yourself and others.

I’m taking note too, and although I find myself wanting to give people a piece of my mind — I’m putting a lid on it. Oh, time to meditate.

The shadow phase, on the tail end — starts March 18th, and ends April 6th.

Godspeed!

The following music video, Retrograde, was released a couple of days ago — just on the cusp of the Mercury Rx shadow!

Fixed Star Capulus: Off with their Heads, Persecution of Improper Conduct, and Male Sexual Energy

Fixed Star Capulus

23° or 24° Taurus

Last month I wrote an article titled, Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol

After I wrote it, I realized my question about my own involvement with Algol men had not been fully answered.  That’s when I started to take a closer look at Capulus. I don’t have Algol in aspect, or paran to any of my planets or angles but I do have Capulus Conjunct Saturn in the 4th house, but not in paran to anything.

The Perseus  Myth

Fixed star energy is deeper, and stronger in my opinion, and basically sets the stage for our life.

The fixed star material I’m bringing up in this article is not easily accessed in talk therapy because it resides as a hidden layer under our regular natal chart (an undercurrent). When I say, “regular”, I mean the standard planets and signs that we readily find in a chart.

And while I find the planets of our natal chart describe who we are, the fixed stars seem to be the myths we play out, often with our soul mates (SN stuff). Fixed star energy is deeper, and stronger in my opinion, and basically sets the stage for our life. Therefore, it’s very important to know what river flows beneath the sand, and work towards applause, rather than boos.

And that’s what I hope to accomplish in this article.  I hope that you’ll be able to uncover compulsive (covered and deep 8th house material) behavior so that you or the ones you care about may begin healing and putting an end to destructive myths being played out. But not only that, I want you and those you care about to achieve greatness — to take the next evolutionary step of self-awareness and self-development.

View images of Perseus (sexual, brave, ego, courage, victory, youth, dare, daring, vitality, strength, virility, potent , fearless, getting the job done)

Legend has it that “Zeus visited Danae in the form of a shower of gold and got her pregnant with Perseus. As a young man Perseus undertook a mission to kill the Medusa. He was furnished with the sword, cap and wings of Mercury and the shield of Minerva (Athena). He killed the Medusa by cutting off her head and afterwards killed the sea monster Cetus and then rescued and married Andromeda. [Robson*, p.56.]”

About the Perseus Myth: Greek Mythology site

To sum it up, for the purpose of exploring the effects of Capulus on a native, an oracle of Apollo told Danae’s father that her son would one day kill him.

So when Acrisius found Danae (his daughter) had a baby, he cast them out to sea in a large chest.  They were saved by the brother (Dictys) of the king, and the king, Polydectes, wanted to marry Danae but she rejected him.

Polydectes set up a rouse to egg on the ego of Perseus. He challenged Perseus to bring him the head of Medusa!

In his journey to slay the head off of Medusa, he received help from Hermes, and Athena (Minerva) — giving Perseus the sickle of Cronos (Saturn) that was used to overpower Uranus and that Zeus used against Typhoeus. Athena also gave him a shield to protect him from the image of Medusa.  Hermes gave him winged sandals. He also received from the Nymphs of the North, the cap of darkness (invisibility), and a “magic wallet” to put the head inside.

In the end, Perseus successfully slayed Medusa.  He also accidentally hit Acrisisus with a discus in a game on the way back to King Polydectes, and that’s what killed him.

The main players in this story

  • Acrisius, father of Danae
  • Danae, mother of Perseus
  • Perseus, immaculately conceived and is the son of Danae & Zeus (Pisces transformed into Aries or Scorpio?)
  • Zeus, father of Perseus (Jupiter, Sagittarius and yet connected to Taurus as he at one point turns himself into a white bull)
  • Polydectes, the savior (through his brother) of Dane and Perseus
  • Adromeda, whom Perseus got released her from the rock, and married. Poseidon had punished her for her mother’s misstep by chaining her to rock to be sacrificed to a sea monster.
  • Hercules, son of Zeus and also a descendant of Perseus and Adromeda

Supporting players

  • Mercury (Gemini, Virgo)
  • Minerva (Athena, Mars, Scorpio, Aries)
  • Pegasus

Sunday May 20 – Sun Enters Gemini, New Moon Gemini, Solar Eclipse, Aspects, & Venus Rx…!

Lots to celebrate, reflect upon, and think about with these upcoming celestial events.
Gemini and Libra are air signs and they like to talk it out, think it out, and express themselves assertively and with evenness.

Dates/Times

Sun Gemini 0° (exact on May 20th 11:16am EST), New Moon Gemini 0° (Exact on May 20th,7:05pm EST), Venus Gemini Rx 23°25, Saturn Libra 23°45 — Aspects: Sun Conjunct New Moon, Venus Rx Trine Saturn

A number of keywords for Gemini:  Changeable, love of variety and mental excitement, $20 words, a gift for the gab, writers and communicators, intelligent, flighty, fickle, two sides, the watchers and observers, song-writing, jingles, text messaging, telephoning, email, board (not bored) games, Scrabble!, Trivial Pursuit, siblings, neighbours, learning, discovering, taking it all in, quick, witty, versatile, mental gymnastics, trade and commerce, sales…

The Sun & Moon are overwhelmingly happy and content with each other today and the Sun will get eclipsed (Solar Eclipse).  I see this as the ego and self-interests being overshadowed and making way for the process of reconnecting and communicating with our emotional selves.  We want to get in touch, understand, know, and communicate our feelings to others and more importantly — to ourselves!

Through the Venus Rx-Saturn Trine, Venus is re-evaluating her mighty and long-lasting karmic commitments she’s made to her finances, beauty, self-esteem, love, friendships, and relationships.  She is taking a look at whether she wants to be further tested in these areas or make the final ascent to reach and end her old goals.  For the most part, she’s done with what’s went on in the past.

Now Saturn is in Libra and Libra is at home in Venus so Venus Rx Trine Saturn is an important aspect as it relates to Libran themes, issues, and opportunities.

Saturn Libra has been doing a dance since 2009 but it’s since July 2010 that we’ve all really noticed serious and very real restrictions in our partnerships, art, contracts, finances, etc..

Saturn Libra is helping Venus take a fair and balanced look at all this.

And Saturn enters Scorpio in October 2012 so Saturn has 4 more months to do its work in finalizing and marking the tests our relationships, art, money, beauty, etc. have had to endure for quite some time..

As well, Saturn Libra is in Trine with Venus Rx until roughly August 7th which is also around the time that Venus is completely out of the shadow period (July 31). So by the start of August, the majority of us will begin to have a solid footing on where we are going next in the Libran areas of our lives.

Yes, we will feel more comfort, at ease, and at home with ourselves, and our renewed and redone commitments.

That’s a relief because the last two years have been the most trying years of my life (in memory. LOL)

Which house will the Sun, New Moon, and Venus Rx in Gemini land in your chart? Where’s Libra? Have you ever done a New Moon ritual or intention?

Things you can do?  Send a message of love, send a package of joy, write out verbal hugs, express heartfelt thanks and gratitude. Name your feelings.  Meditate upon your relationship to yourself, money, beauty, art, etc..

By the way, Sunday is my FAVORITE day.

RIP Etta James

Where’s Your AIR? Where Do YOU Breathe Clarity Into Your Own Life as Well as Others?

Wherever your air sign planets and asteroid (Venus, Juno, Mercury, Saturn, and Uranus) are placed, shows mental clarity. Same goes for the signs Libra, Gemini, Virgo, and Aquarius.

For example, I have Mercury Virgo in the 8th so I tend to have clarity about psychological health, sex, control, accounting, trade and commerce, body works, and occult subjects.  Initially this clarity is used to help other people but eventually I learn my own mind, etc. and these subjects (including the occult) to help myself.

What have you found interesting about your chart in regards to where your air signs / planets / asteroids are?

It’s Taurus Season!

April 19th, 2012 to May 20th, 2012

It’s Taurus Season!

Taurus is the sign of grounded love, art, money, beauty, and the finer things in life (including rich food and drink!).

Taurus is resilient, persistent, and pushes through. Taurus is sensual, of the earth. Taurus is your rock, stable and unflinching in its desire.

This is a great time to reinforce or start a diet, revitalize your financial situation, and bring beauty and love into your home!

Mercury Rx in Aries

Mercury Rx in Aries (like Mercury Conjunct Mars Rx or Mercury in first house Rx) experiences: Delayed receipt of some mail, reduced trade, communication mishaps, a fall due to water on floor (the sign wasn’t clear enough) — this also could connect to Mars Virgo Rx as they’re in mutual reception, self oriented thoughts that don’t take into account the needs, thoughts, and wishes of others, a lot of excuses, technology not operating as usual.

Most of this isn’t unusual. So pretty much, business as usual for Mercury Rx.

Life Skills: Trying Different Things Out

I think I try a lot of different things because a) I have Gemini on the 5th and 6th house cusps, b) I like to try my hand at a lot of different things just because it’s fun, and c) It’s a great way to figure out if I have any talent in anything or if something works well. haha…

So don’t be shy. Take a page from me. Make lots of mistakes, maybe even a fool of yourself.

Even if you don’t think you’re good at something, try it anyway and share it. See if people like it. If they don’t, maybe don’t spend as much time on it ;-P or if you love it badly, spend even MORE time developing it.

Finally it’s ARIES SEASON!! Make Your New Year Resolution Rx!

Finally it’s ARIES SEASON!! 0°

This is the second best time to create ‘New Year’ Resolutions for North America, Europe, etc and the first time for residents of other countries and faiths. In fact, the Persian New Year (Nowrūz) starts today!

As an extended tradition to the holiday, men may or may not choose to shave their faces until the night of the “New Day” as a sign of removal of old habits and tendencies and the rebirth of their faith and being. ~ Wikipedia

Aries is the sign of action, courage, and drive. And cardinal energy is about initiating and starting things. If you couldn’t do it before, you can now. Lets go!!

Make your intentions and re-intentions, strong! And what better time to do it than during Mercury Aries Rx!?!

As a Leo Sun-Mars (like Aries Sun, double Mars Leo), I’m loving this!!

Where’s Your Mars? What Do You Ignite For Others?

Where’s your Mars? What do you ignite others to act upon or be assertive and self-oriented? For me, my Mars is in the 7th. I inspire others to assert themselves in partnership with me. I encourage partners to get their needs met while meeting the needs of the other. The style (Leo) in which I do this is dramatic, animated, dominant, warm, and friendly.

Aspect Delineation: Putting a Planet, Sign, & House Together

1. The PLANets have “plans” for us. That’s easy to remember because the word PLAN is part of the word planet.

2. Signs indicate the style of carrying out a plan [whether that is natural house ruler or planetary]. The sign is like a signature and it says something about the personality and nature.

3. When two or more planets get together they ask us to ‘do something’ extra special.  This is called an aspect. I like to think of it as the type of conversation the planets are having and how it affects us.  Yes, we can be worked like marionettes down on Earth.

4. The planets are quite specific in where and what they want us to do and how they want us to do it.

The house(s) that the planets reside within and the signs that are connected to the house, determine what and where we will carry out the plan.

Update: The sign on the cusp of the house tells us the style in which we display the natural house ruler (planetary) concerns.

For example, Mercury is in Virgo but Aries is on my 3rd house cusp so my style of communication is direct, fast, assertive, fearless, bold, etc.. And I like to talk about health, analysis, facts, the details, daily activities, working, etc.

Where Are You Mean? Where’s Your Capricorn?

Where Are You Mean? Where’s Your Capricorn?

Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, can be a mean old man.  Where’s your Capricorn and what does it say about how and why you can be mean? I have Capricorn rising.  I can look mean but deep down, I’m not (Opposite Theory! Cancer on the DC!).  I can, however, be mean like a gnarly dog, guarding his masters (The Sun & Moon and the other inner bits).

My Capricorn meanness acts as protector.

Leos are the BEST Drivers & Tiger-Eye Crystals Protect

I knew Tiger-eye was connected to Leo and awhile back I read an article about a study that says Leos make the best drivers so I find it awesome that the following tip was given on what to use crystals for!

Put them in your car!

  • Placing a golden tiger-eye in your car will help to protect you and your car against accidents. Place the stone in a secure place where it will not roll around or get lost. I suggest wrapping it in wire, attaching it to a cord or chain, and then hanging it from the rearview mirror.

What’s also interesting is that Mars-Uranus can be connected to vehicular accidents (going too fast, sudden accident).

Mars rules Aries, Trines Leo. And Uranus rules Aquarius, the opposite of Leo. Also, the third house (ruled naturally by Mercury) is connected to driving short distances and is ruled by Gemini (Sextiles Leo) while Sagittarius naturally rules the 9th house (long distance travel) and is the other Trine to Leo.

What an astro-crystal connection or rather astrogasm!

Here’s an example:
Virgo- Libra-Scorpio
Truth
Scorpio wants to find the hidden truth. “The truth hurts.”

Virgo wants to find the absolute core truth. – “There’s your truth, my truth, and then THE truth”.

Libra wants to find the middle path of truth – “Three sides to every story: Yours, mine, and the truth.”

Celebrity Astrology Reading: Stevie Nicks – Children & Marriage

 

This image was taken from AstroTheme. Please go there to get more detail on the chart, etc.

Stevie Nicks Natal Chart

From Wikipedia:

In a 1989 interview, Stevie gave personal insight as to the meaning of Rooms on Fire:

Rooms on Fire is about a girl who goes through a life like I have gone through, where she finally accepts the idea that there never will be those other things in her life. She will never be married, she will never have children, she will never do those [that] part of life.

We all have our own path, our own karma. Children, spouses, and the traditional trappings isn’t for everyone. I’m just thoroughly impressed that Stevie Nicks knew this or got an astrology consultation to make her aware of it — maybe she even gave herself an astrology consultation.

No children is indicated by Saturn and Pluto in her 5th house but it’s made more difficult by being conjunct. Leo is also one of the barren signs. You would think that wouldn’t be the case since Leo is playful and child-like but that’s exactly why Leo on the 5th house cusp can cause barrenness. That placement suggests the native is a child themselves and can not be responsible. And any child she would have had (probably a boy) would quite possibly have died.

In regards to lack of marriage, in her romance and dating house (the progression from dating to marriage) she more than likely had destructive romances that tested her will (Mars Conjunct Pluto). In her 8th house (House of Domination) she has South Node Conjunct Chiron (I use wide orbs). Marriage wounded her in a past life and continues to wound her. Neptune (which is square her Venus) is near this house cusp (the 6th house, House of Submission) and it’s here where she would attract men of addiction, fantasy, and illusion. In fact, she would likely have this as part of her nature as well — perhaps wanting to be Cinderella and finding her Prince but no mere mortal man could ever be a true fairytale Prince. With the house cusp having the sign in Libra, we have a house that is ruled by Venus and Juno. Any committed partnership could be met with mind games and mental abuse.

She did marry but it was for convenience and surrounding a long time chronic illness of her friend (she married her friend’s widow) – see South Node Conjunct Chiron in the 8th.  Perhaps it was a karmic debt repaid..

Astrology: About Interceptions

Interceptions: “I have never yet had a client with an interception who wasn’t mastering their karmic failure and giving the gift indicated by the interception.” Aquarian Essence

“…The intercepted house polarity is the part of consciousness that the native feels like a complete failure about, when it is in fact the part of themselves that is developing the most.” Barbara Hand Clow

My rising sign is Capricorn. Pisces and Virgo are intercepted. I have no planets, signs, asteroids, or points in Aquarius except the part of fortune. My North Node in Pisces, 2nd house. Aquarius is on my 2nd house cusp.  I have Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, SN Virgo in the 8th house. I have double “Gemini/Sagittarius: Reason vs. Revelation” Mary Devlin.

“The lack of balance may be within the person’s own development or is suited to assist other’s with balancing this axis. ” Aquarian Essence

My biggest strength is deep communication (discovering), and it’s also my failure. But I feel compelled to teach others how to speak with authority, clarity, and bravery to themselves and to others (Mars on the 3rd house cusp, Chiron Aries). I don’t always do such a good job at that.

“The most important thing for a person with an interception to know is that there is no need for feeling like a failure or feeling guilty, which is often the case.” Aquarian Essence

Oh, ha, they’re good!!

Aquarian Essense says there’s a lack of communication and education that is projected on my love axis. That makes sense. Often there has been strain in regards to my daily living and working habits and the partner doesn’t communicate this to me until its too late. As I continue to read the article, AE suggests that it’s the ‘intercepted native’ that projects. In my case, I have been completely honest with lovers (as an adult) and they have deceived and lied to me. Communication of important details were not provided. So I’m not sure how that one works. Then again, I have the 5/11, 6/12 axis so that could be the difference.

“When looked at objectively, it will be clear that the axis is well on its way toward balance, especially by mid life.” Yes! Agreed.

Another interesting article from Rosicrucian.com about interceptions.

“As a result of an intercepted diameter in a chart there will be two pairs of houses covered by the same diameter. Wherever this “phenomenon” occurs, you will know that the houses concerned in this “duplication” represent experience-patterns on which the person concerned is “making up for past defaults;” Rosicrucian.com, Elman Bacher

I’d agree. I have often said: I must have done something horrible in a past life or even making wrong choices when I was younger to have to experience the communication hell I do, today. I do feel like I’m making a sacrifice and being of service because I myself, lacked communication skills and a voice when I was younger.  I also wasn’t entirely honest or had complete integrity, in my youth. (Note: the higher degree is on my 6th/12th axis and that’s where I probably have the most ‘projection’ with the polarity)

“If the second cusp is covered by the next sign in sequence, then we know that the person is destined in this incarnation to express a higher octave of quality of his past… No one ever exactly repeats a level from one incarnation to the next–upwardness is always a factor to be considered in karmic interpretation.” My intercepted sign is Pisces, I have North Node in Pisces, and Aquarius is on my 2nd house cusp.

I’ve said this about interceptions:
In some ways it feels like a stellium because it spans two house cusps. It makes talents and weaknesses overwhelming obvious. It has an intensity and overdone quality to it. The double sign indicates where prominent themes are at play. With having Gemini on the 5th and 6th house cusps, I LOVE my job. What I do for fun, I do for work. On the flip-side, what I do for work, I do for fun. So that means, I’m not always having fun or I’m not always working. A large part of my day is communicating — talking on the phone, by email, and learning. It makes me a bit of an information geek.

And after a conversation with another intercepted native (from twitter), we came to this conclusion as well:

My Aquarius energy is filtered through Pisces so I experience the emotions of an Aquarius but hidden.  It’s my Pisces heart that is electric. When I sort through my detachment and coldness and know what I think, it is often a very soft and lamb-like nature that emerges. All my Virgo signs get a Leo treatment. I am fair minded to my core but have Jupiter Libra that indicates that as well. :-) So I am creatively critical, and an analytical authority, or an authority on a subject – expert.

“…determine the possibilities of why one diameter may represent a “holding back” or a “promise of future development” in this incarnation. The duplicated diameters–when they are lined up with structure-sequence–will indicate which pair of houses represents a condition from the past that must be repeated–for complete fulfillment–in the present.” Rosicrucian.com, Elman Bacher

Here’s a link delineating the intercepted houses.

“Virgo/Pisces Axis or Sixth/Twelfth House Axis

If your Virgo/Pisces or sixth/twelfth house axis is intercepted it may take you quite some time to find a line of work which you find to be fulfilling. This disillusionment you feel in your day-to-day routine is destined to force you to question your spirituality and seek answers of a rather esoteric nature to help you better understand the life role you were born into.

You are an old soul who has experienced much in lives past and will find yourself bumping into people who you knew long ago. These rekindled friendships will add meaning to your life and keep you going during those times when you feel overwhelmed with trials.

Unfortunately, you will learn from experience that you must continually question the motives of those you meet casually because many will have agendas which are at cross purposes to your own. While secret enemies abound, these encounters will help you learn to keep your own council and look beyond the veil of the outer persona when judging a person’s true character.

You will in all probability have a part-time job or business in addition to your primary vocation which will bring you a little extra money as well as help to fulfill some of your self actualization needs.

You may at times feel as if you have heavy burdens because you will find that you have many obligations and responsibilities which keep you firmly grounded to the earth. While it can be depressing to find that you must tend to your day-to-day duties while it seems that others around you have ”

Nod!

Do you have an interception?
