Love and Ego: Neptune and ???

June 20, 2021

The battle between Love and Ego has been going on for a long time. Let’s look back 2000 years or so, and even before that. Way back in the dim and distant past, God had a favourite angel. He gave special gifts to this angel (music was one of them – Lucifer is a brilliant musician). But then Lucifer’s ego puffed up, and Lucifer decided that he should be the big shot – number one (I AM), and he tried to set himself up as “God”, to be worshipped by all.

And then there was war in heaven (I always visualise a Star Wars type of battle scene whenever I read that phrase 🙂 ) and Lucifer, or Satan, or the Devil, whichever you prefer, was cast down to Earth. (I prefer the term “Ego”.)

So Ego ended up on Earth. So, as pure souls with unconditional love and compassion deep inside us (Neptune/Pisces), we come down into this ego-saturated world (and dimension of reality), and occupy (these often inadequate) bodies for a while (design flaws). We crash-land on planet Earth so to speak. This occurrence points to the three Earth signs: Taurus: material status, Virgo: efficient money systems, and Capricorn (HandiCap): gravity, weight, restrictions, limitations, lessons

You may believe this story about the battle between God and Lucifer and Lucifer consequently being cast down to earth, or you may not – whether you do or not doesn’t really bother me, but the symbolism is interesting.

We Are One, and Divide and Separate

A way to distinguish Love from Ego is that Love is compassionate and all-inclusive, and Ego is all about ‘divide and separate’. Here is another ‘fable’ that you may or may not choose to believe. According to this one, during the Piscean age, Jesus Christ came to earth with a message of unconditional love, which was all-inclusive in that it included everybody. In true Piscean style, he was “invisible” to many, especially the Jewish religious leaders of the time and probably the larger portion of humanity, and he sacrificed himself. Jesus demonstrated many of the best qualities of Neptune and its sign Pisces: compassion, unconditional love, forgiveness, non-judgement and so on. The message of love Jesus delivered was all inclusive in the way that unconditional love is. But then the Ego intervened, in the form of self-important Jewish leaders that ridiculed Jesus, and then later in the form of different interpretations of the bible being formed by different individuals into different religions (divide and separate), with each separate religion proclaiming that We Are Right (W.A.R), and that the rest of the religions and their many followers are all going straight to Hell (I hope they have good pizza’s there :-)).

You may believe that a wise teacher named Jesus came to earth, or you may not, and that really doesn’t bother me, but to me it is fairly obvious that Love and Ego are both powerful forces here on earth.

How do these two forces align with or fit into astrology? Ahh…the million dollar question.

I have (loosely) identified (unconditional) love as falling under the rulership of Neptune/Pisces, so what about Ego? Lucifer/Ego is associated with Fire, so let’s look at the three Fire signs just for a laugh.

Aries: aggressiveness, competitiveness (divide and separate), being ‘number one’, and the keywords for Aries are ‘I Am’.

Leo: arrogance, self-importance, and the keywords for Leo are ‘I create’.

Sagittarius: hubris and overconfidence, which can lead to delusions of grandeur.

Not a bad fit, don’t you think? 🙂

Please note that each Star sign, or more correctly, Sun sign, has its evolved and unevolved traits or characteristics. In the Fire sign paragraphs above, I have drawn heavily on the unevolved characteristics of those three Sun signs. No one belonging to a particular sign is completely like this: astrology just doesn’t work that way. As well as a person having a mix of the evolved and unevolved qualities of a particular Sun sign, ALL of the other eleven signs feature in that person’s astrological makeup (try going makeup free 🙂 and contribute to the unique and beautiful individual that each person is.

Our True and False Self

Our soul describes the true reality of who we are. Our ego describes our false, illusory self. We all have an ego because we live here on this earth plane, this earthly dimension of total existence. I guess the difference between individual people is that some people are aware of their ego’s and monitor them, and others aren’t, and blunder through life using that false, puffed-up identity. Try to avoid them if you can!

Does the Earth Rule Taurus, and does Chiron Rule Virgo?

July 16, 2019

As well as all of the other planets in our solar system, the Earth is a fully fledged member of our solar system also, so it does seem logical that it would rule one of the astrological signs, and Taurus would be a good fit. After all, all the other planets in our solar system rule a sign (or two), so why not the Earth?

I guess the ‘problem’ is that when we look at our natal birth charts, the Earth is at the centre of the chart, whereas all of the rest of the planets are out in space orbiting around the Earth, and influencing us here on Earth. However, once a child is finally born on a different planet within our solar system that is not the Earth (which may happen sooner than we think), that will be a whole different ball game. The Earth then will be a planet out in space that orbits the ‘home base’ planet (the one positioned at the centre of the natal chart and the one representing the particular planet that the child was born on), and therefore is very likely to take over the rulership of a sign. And also I guess, viewed from a different planet in our solar system, the fixed star constellations that we call the Signs would appear to be arranged slightly differently than as presently seen from the unique perspective of our Earth home base. Perhaps someone born on Mars would be, for instance, more ‘martian’ in nature, and the Earth would act as a more grounding sort of influence for that person. Interesting times.

Moons that orbit the other planets however are excluded from ruling a sign of course, and yet our Moon does rule one of the signs (was that a concession? 🙂

Venus traditionally rules Taurus, and Venus rules beauty (among other things). Perhaps Taurus is co-ruled by the Earth along with Venus, because we live on a beautiful Earth! However, these are just theories, and are likely to remain so. Watch out, I have some more theories (unique to me) which I will share!

There is a theory (which quite a few astrologers subscribe to) that Chiron rules Virgo, but my personal opinion is that, rather than Chiron ruling Virgo, it has a definite affinity with the sign. Virgo is about health, well-being, and service to others. Chiron is the wounded healer, so is also about health and healing. Chiron is about service also, but in the way that a Shaman serves others, with alternative healing methods and modalities. Chiron seems to function as a ‘higher’, more unconventional sort of influence within Virgo, and overrides traditional healing methods and doctors in order to access, introduce and mix in (often very useful) alternative healing methods and options.

Chiron also has an affinity with Sagittarius, in my opinion. Why? Because the symbol for Sagittarius is the Centaur – half man, half horse – and Chiron is a Centaur also according to ancient mythology. What the Centaur symbolises for Sagittarius is the head (spiritual/philosophical half), and the body (animal/beast half). The energy can either go down into the physical/animal/beast side, or up into the spiritual/philosophical side of the Sagittarian’s nature and development as a person. Let’s look at the ‘flavour’ of Chiron as it filters through the sign of Sagittarius (of course, not every Sagittarian will conform to what I am about to share because Sun signs are very general, and the many additional components in the rest of the person’s chart must be considered, but bearing that in mind, let’s continue with this line of investigation).

Sagittarius is the sign of the Guru and the Groupie. Sagittarians seek to know the truth about life, are interested in all sorts of philosophies, and often follow wise people or Guru’s who profess to know the truth, and teach this same truth to their followers. (Interestingly, in Indian Vedic astrology, the planet that rules Sagittarius, Jupiter, is actually named Guru). So, remembering that Chiron through Virgo represents the Shaman and the Healer, let’s look at Chiron through Sagittarius – the sign of the Guru and the Groupie (Guru being the teacher, and groupie being the follower). (As in, come listen to my philosophy, and be healed).

Osho Rajneesh was a Sagittarian who was a cult leader and a teacher, who built up an enormous global following. In his birth chart, Osho had his Sun in Sagittarius in Inconjunct aspect to Chiron in Taurus. As well as this significant ‘Chiron connection’, Chiron was in square aspect to his Jupiter, which is the ruler of Sagittarius. So there was plenty of ‘Chiron flavour’ in his chart, and in his life and personality.

So what is the bridging point (in common) between Chiron filtering through Sagittarius, and Chiron filtering through Virgo? The Shaman and the healer. One who either wounds or heals (or perhaps a bit of both). One who has studied life (or medicine) deeply, and seeks to heal others with that knowledge (be it philosophical or physical). Chiron is definitely a Shaman, amongst his many other talents. Through Virgo, a healer and alternative health Shaman, and through Sagittarius, a teacher-preacher alternative philosophy Shaman.

The Difference Between Your North Node and Your South Node

May 28, 2018

I have found, through years of observation, that the North node represents mostly conscious energy, and the South node represents largely unconscious energy. Also, the South node represents your habitual self (and internal comfort zone and things that are familiar), and North node energy shows where you attempt to accomplish things that are OUTSIDE your comfort zone (and possibly in the outside world also).

The North node is also largely PRO-active, and the South node is largely RE-active. Your South node represents your past, and your North node represents your future. The South node represents where you’ve come from as a person, and your North node represents where you are going (if you choose to go there).

The North node is the Dragon’s head, and it represents one’s creative energy to a certain extent. It points to where you can move into new, fresh territory, take on new challenges, and thereby become your new, expanded self. The South node is the Dragon’s tail, and it represents our established security and survival patterns and mechanisms, repetitive behaviour, and also an emotional attachment to our old habit patterns and circumstances. Unconscious  behaviours, thoughts and feelings (South node) reinforce our old, familiar, ‘safe’ self (South node).

There is a big difference between our North node and our South node (and remember that they are in opposite signs to each other for a start). When we sit in the energy of our South node – yes, we may feel comfortable and secure, but when we embrace our North node energy, we feel ALIVE.

The South node represents our habits. Personally, I have hugely underestimated how important habits are in my life (and in everyone’s lives). I will show in the following paragraphs how much of our personal ‘ram space’ is taken up by our habits. For instance, think about all the psychological patterns that we have collected on our journey through life. How much valuable clear ram space do they take up?

Your South node indicates ground you have previously covered and feel confident about or familiar with. You can also see your South node as pointing to ‘onboard gifts’ that you already have, and your North node points to the stimulating challenges you have come here to take on in this lifetime, in order to find and live your true self, true purpose, and thereby experience true joy as a spiritual being.

Like the fanatic that I sometimes am, I am repeatedly putting certain words in this article into italics. Let me explain why.

Remember that we are talking about the MOON’S nodes here. The Moon rules the astrological sign of Cancer. Cancerians are very sensitive people who collect things (photographs, memories, possessions, unconscious psychological habit patterns etc). Cancer is about FAMILY (familiar) and what feels comfortable, (comfort zone) and security, and memories and events of the past. Cancer relates to dependencies also.

Cancer’s opposite sign is Capricorn. Capricorn is much more about North node energy. Capricorn is about assuming responsibility, being self-reliant (independent as opposed to dependent) and going boldly out into the world (EXternal, rather than dwelling INternally; outer rather than inner) to make a name for ourselves (sometimes out of necessity) and attempting to achieve something that is more than we currently are. We must face our fears with the North node, and take that leap away from security and familiarity and plunge into the unknown, and take on ‘uncomfortable at first’ types of situations.

This is quite different energy in comparison to internal, comfort-loving, nurturing and nurtured, safe, sheltered, protective and protected Cancerian energy. In my opinion the Moon’s South node has a strong alignment with the sign of Cancer. So when I type a word that aligns with both the South node and the sign of Cancer, I am going to put it in italics, in order to differentiate South node energy from North node energy (and just you try and stop me 🙂

When we decide to operate through our North node, we are hesitant, and feel quite sensitive (in the Cancerian way) and perhaps fearful (in the Capricorn way) about what we will attempt to do. After all, our North node action is likely to be outside of our comfort zone, and we are likely to attempt to do something that we are not very familiar with (family). Perhaps we might be asked to do some important public speaking (out of our comfort zone) but are being summoned to speak about something that will benefit us, and also the people we speak to, immensely. But we balk at the prospect.

Did you feel some fear when I mentioned the prospect of public speaking? That was your North node cutting in, or more precisely, your South node’s reaction to a North node pursuit. Of course, taking North node action will represent a multitude of different challenging and scary things for a multitude of different people. Rock climbing anyone? Lion taming? Racecar driving? Travelling around the world and spending years away from home?

Of course, North node challenges don’t necessarily have to be as large and dramatic as the examples I offered above. The challenge might just be the simple act of taking responsibility in some way. Bringing up children for instance. Or filling in your tax return.

We make the most of ourselves and may rise to our highest purpose, function and public status (Capricorn) when we follow our North node inclinations, and take small steps or perhaps larger strides in that direction. We may even find the reason we came to this planet, and identify what we came here to do in this lifetime, and then go ahead and do it.

It is actually easier to be your North node when you are younger, and when you are a bit more ‘foolhardy’ and are prepared or even eager to try a variety of things that you wouldn’t try when you are older and have become more complacent and ‘habitualised’ by your own unconscious patterns. Our unconscious patterns are ever present, and come up during the day while we are awake, and they definitely come to the forefront at night when we are asleep and dreaming while the Moon is more present in the sky.

Neuroscientist and physician Dr. Joe Dispenza in his book, Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One, states that by the age of 35 years old, NINETY-FIVE PERCENT of our behaviour has become habitual and largely unconscious (South node). Yes, you read that right; 95%!

He goes on to say that, and I quote, “5 percent of the mind is conscious, struggling against the 95% that is running subconscious automatic programs. We’ve memorized a set of behaviors so well that we have become an automatic, habitual body-mind”.


Think of it like the inner workings of a computer. You’ve got 5% of clear operating space left on your computer that’s up against 95% of stored, accumulated ‘memory’. How fast and functional and efficient will your computer be under those circumstances?

If we overly embrace habitual behaviours (South node), there’s no way for us to overcome and find solutions to stagnant energy and problems that are rooted in the past. We need to come from a different energy frequency in order to be able to solve a problem; not the same energy frequency as the problem.

Habitual behaviours and habitual thoughts and feelings reinforce our old unconscious self (South node). So when your proactive conscious mind (North node) wants to try something new, innovative and daring, your unconscious mind (South node) comes up with a plethora of reasons why you should not attempt to do anything out of the ordinary and break out of your habitual way of being.

Please note that in my highlighting of the stark difference between the North node and the South node, at the same time I do not wish to belittle the qualities and value of the South node. Your nodes can (and do) work as a team.

South node gifts and qualities can be used to reach and attain North node goals. You have some built in ‘onboard’ gifts, experience, knowledge and mastery thanks to your South node that you can use wisely to attain personal expansion in ways pointed to by your North node.

For instance, South node in Aries adds independence, initiative, self-assertion and leadership qualities to any chart, and a certain amount of me-first ‘warrior energy’. But because the person with South node in Aries also has their North node in the opposite sign of Libra, they are being asked in this incarnation to learn power sharing, in a fair and balanced way, and to put the other person first. The South node Aries person is being asked to surrender or at least compromise some of their personal, stand-alone independent power. This might be by sharing leadership roles with other individuals or within a group, in a considerate, balanced Libran type of partnership arrangement. Or perhaps by letting someone else take the lead completely. That Aries South node can add a lot of initiative, enthusiasm, direction, courage, warmth and value to any partnership, even if it is not running the show.

Another example might be a person with the South node in Cancer. This same person has their North node in Capricorn, which means they are being asked to get organized and take personal responsibility for their lives, and also to create some valuable, useful structures out in the world that will benefit many people. The South node in Cancer contains sensitive, sympathetic, caring, intuitive, highly developed nurturing abilities, which can help their North node in Capricorn to build structures that greatly nurture other people; useful, empowering structures that perhaps teach or show other people how to be self-sufficient and responsible for themselves and their own health and healing.

So remember that all is not lost, and here is the good news. You created your currently existing subconscious patterns in the first place by inputting information into your big subconscious reservoir with your conscious mind (and you continue to do this as you move through life). So you can overwrite existing programmes – ones that don’t serve you – with your conscious mind once more, and replace them with fresh new ones that serve you a whole lot better.

For example, perhaps when you were a child, one of your parents or perhaps both parents constantly criticized you and told you that you were useless and worthless and wouldn’t amount to anything, and with your conscious mind you wrote this pattern into your own subconscious by believing them. Become aware of this unhelpful programme, and overwrite it with new conscious mind input every time it comes up.

The next time you want to try something new, be aware of your unconscious patterns if they come up to hold you back or dissuade you, keep an eye on your internal dialogue, monitor the thoughts you think, and smile at your inner critic when it pops up with ‘advice’. Thoughts that you continue to think by repeating them over and over eventually turn into beliefs. Beliefs eventually create realities in your life.

Change yourself and your life in wonderful ways by creating and feeding in some helpful beliefs; beliefs that serve you and bring you joy. The more awake and conscious you are able to be, the more you will be able to live, or start living, through your North node.

Keep reaching for the stimulating challenges that your North node points you towards, and watch you life become much more exciting, stimulated, satisfying and deeply joyful!

Credits: I must give credit to Dr Joe Dispenza and his wonderful book named Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One. When I read Dr Joe’s words and considered his well- researched discoveries about our conscious, proactive side and our unconscious, reactive side, our potential future self and our residual past self, and how we change as we age and how the aware, conscious part of ourselves by the age of 35 years old is way out of balance with the much larger habitual, unconscious part of ourselves, I immediately recognised the astrological North and South nodes in my own and everybody else’s natal charts.

Coronavirus and How The Current Planetary Positions Relate to our Natal Birth Charts

August 30, 2020

A few of the more important ones: At about 29 or 30 years old, Saturn completes its cycle around the Sun and returns to its natural place in your (and everybody’s) birth chart. That particular influence implies maturing, facing ‘reality’, and taking on responsibility, which is what Saturn is all about. 29 or 30 years old is often a peak time in people’s lives, with significant, life-defining events occurring. Take a look at your own life and note what happened at this time.

Uranus has an 84 year cycle around the Sun, and half of this cycle is 42 years. At around this time, it opposes its position in your birth chart. So, due to the not perfectly circular orbit of Uranus, the Uranus opposition occurs roughly between 38 and 44 years old in everybody’s life. This influence is known in society as the ‘mid-life crisis’ because Uranus is a planet of change and disruption. Uranus is also the planet of invention, so you may ‘reinvent’ yourself in some way around this time. (Other important Uranus influences happen at 21 years old and at about 62 years old. Check out what happened at those times in your life, if you are old enough).

And at around 49/50 years old, the asteroid Chiron completes a cycle around the Sun, and returns to its natal place in your birth chart (and everybody’s chart). The Chiron return is about ‘wounds’ that come up for healing, in order to allow you to become more whole and complete as a person. These can be spiritual, psychological, or physical wounds (or all three). Chiron is all about health and healing, and the way your ‘spiritual health’ or attitude affects your physical or psychological health. Once the Chiron return is over, we reach a place of new spiritual maturity and life experience.

This very brief analysis of the transits of the moving planets to your ‘frozen’ birth planets by no means covers all of the planetary influences you will encounter in your life; instead it is a brief introduction and a very small percentage of all the planetary influences you will encounter and feel in your lifetime.

This Too Shall Pass 

Of course, the moving planets also influence what happens on our Earth, to all of us as one, and also shapes how we respond to those manifestations as individual people, or as a collective. There are always many different planetary influences happening at the same time, and as we slowly move further into the rather radical Age of Aquarius, many unpredictable ‘game changers’ that affect all of humanity are coming along. Let’s briefly look at one smaller, yet important influence in the current coronavirus situation.

Jupiter is the planet of good fortune, good ‘luck’, expansion and freedom. Global travel is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is currently in Capricorn, the sign of seriousness, restrictions, boundaries and limits, big business, lessons and karma, and is somewhat uncomfortable in that sign. But by 2021, Jupiter will have moved into the sign of Aquarius, which is the sign of humanity, and will be much more comfortable and ‘fortuitous’ in that sign, and I believe the current situation will be greatly eased due to this influence. Lets hope I’m right!

Jupiter In Scorpio 2017 and 2018: Secrets, BIG Money and Intensified Desire

October 24, 2017

From the 11th of October 2017 until the 8th of November 2018, transiting Jupiter will be moving through the potent sign of Scorpio. This is a powerful influence that everyone will feel in some way.

With transiting Jupiter moving through Scorpio, your deep desires are expanding and intensifying in many ways, and one of those ways is likely to be the desire to travel (Jupiter). However, travel requires money. But with Jupiter in this fruitful sign, you can come up with innovative ways to acquire that necessary money.

This is a time to clearly identify the many deep desires that you have, and imagine them coming true (Transiting Jupiter’s beautiful trine to Neptune in May and August of 2018 will help with that) because imagination powered by desire can take you a long way. So while Jupiter is transiting through Scorpio, delve deeply into your desires, clarify them and add detail to them, and then when Jupiter goes into its own sign of Sagittarius on the  9th of November 2018, you will be up and running to take advantage of that ‘double shot’  of optimism and expansiveness that you can use to propel yourself toward achieving your most precious goals and desires.

Let’s look at a few basic keywords for Jupiter and for Scorpio in order to get some clues about what this particular energy combination might mean for you. Jupiter represents an amplification of, an expansion of, an increase in: Scorpio is about secrets, obsessions, fixations, deep growth, desire, intensity, passion, money and power. So expect an increase in any of these. And a desire for adventure also.

I believe that there are both negative and positive ‘obsessions’ (Scorpio). So fixate (Scorpio) on what makes you happy and on what you deeply desire to have, what you would love to have, every day, and have faith, and watch it come true before your eyes.

Yes, manifesting things does require some action on your behalf, but make sure it is inspired action; action that is perfectly in line with your desires and has been powered by your desires – not action taken because you ‘have to’ do it.

In the public arena, deep secrets that politicians and other prominent people hold will come out. Jupiter represents honesty, ‘straight-shooting’ and the truth, as well as BIG money.

I find it interesting that, as I am writing this (17 October 2017), later on the same day I read a news article informing me that a person named Larry Flint has taken out a full page ad in the Washington Post, promising BIG money (10 Million dollars) to anyone who can provide secret information (Scorpio) that will lead to the impeachment and removal from office of Donald J. Trump. Big money indeed, for ‘dirt’ that could impeach Trump. Larry Flint stated, and I quote, “We need to flush everything out into the open”. Jupiter in Scorpio words for sure. Perhaps even private detectives will be interested; $10 million would certainly be a lucrative fee to earn.

Scorpio represents secrets, power, and other people’s money. So the above is just one of the manifestations of Jupiter in Scorpio – already. It’s going to be an interesting 12 months! And expect more surprises in the political arena. Perhaps sudden changes to the status quo, as transiting Uranus moves into Taurus in May of 2018.

On a personal level however, bear in mind how potent this energy combination is, and be sure to use it to your advantage to achieve your goals, dreams and your deepest desires. And the best of (optimistic) Jupiter luck with that!

Guns And Nukes: Mars and Pluto and Anger

May 21, 2017

Pluto is the higher octave of Mars. Mars represents the handgun. Pluto represents the atomic bomb.

With Mars, anger is often released rapidly and without ceremony. With Pluto however, the anger tends to build up until it reaches an explosive level and explosion point: kind of like a volcano. So that’s why people with Mars in Scorpio in their natal charts usually need to learn how to release their anger properly and healthily.

But back to Mars representing the handgun, and Pluto representing the atomic bomb (an atomic bomb works by splitting large atomic nuclei, usually plutonium, thereby releasing a huge amount of energy). If a person with mental problems needs to pass a psychiatric or psychological test to buy and be responsible for a handgun, shouldn’t politicians with big egos and malignant narcissism and so forth need to pass the same test to run an entire country? Especially a country that has nuclear weapons at that “leader’s” disposal, which therefore, if used by an unstable personality, implicates the deaths of millions of people?

Saturn Trine Uranus 2017 and Quantum Physics

January 17, 2017

Saturn represents the old, established and traditional. Uranus represents the new, enlightened and ground-breaking. Saturn represents the old form of science – Newtonian science. Uranus represents the new, enlightened, breakthrough, Quantum Physics science.

Newtonian science is predictable (Saturn). Quantum physics is a lot more innovative and unpredictable (Uranus), and with Quantum Physics, the experimenter is always involved in the experiment and is recognised as a part of the end result of an experiment (all of humanity – Uranus). The Saturn trine Uranus planetary aspect occurring in the heavens which began at the end of 2016, is within orb throughout all of 2017. So this is a good year for mixing and integrating the new and innovative with the old and established.

As individuals, we all have an inner, personal reality, and also an outer reality, that we are affected by. Perhaps I should give a crude example of this. You are out on the highway driving your car, feeling great, and a traffic cop suddenly pulls you over and gives you a speeding ticket. You are not pleased, and your good mood rapidly evaporates. An event from the outer reality has produced a reaction inside your inner reality.

Newtonian science brought us the laws of Cause and Effect. Something happening in the outer reality causes an effect deep within us (in our inner reality). This could be an enjoyable experience, or a not so enjoyable experience (for us personally). But there wasn’t a lot we could do about it. That was our lot. We just hoped the Gods of good fortune would be kind to us.

But then the new, exciting and mind-blowing Quantum Physics came along and changed all those old, limiting, Newtonian science rules, and in the process, hinted at personal liberation for all of us.

We are sending out and broadcasting a specific signal into the universal intelligence and into the Quantum Field at all times, just by virtue of what we are thinking and feeling, and the universe (or Quantum Field in the terms of quantum physicists) sends us “feedback” directly related to the particular signal we are sending out/have sent out. We think things, feel things and do things in our inner reality, and things happen in the outer reality.

Cause and Effect. If you are unconscious about what you are sending out, you may be unhappy about or mystified by what is coming back to you from the universe. An undesirable effect that comes back from the universe to you may cause you to react inside your inner reality in an undesirable or unpleasant way, thereby causing you to send out a signal that will produce and bring back to you more undesirable effects. You may react unpleasantly to that and send out on that frequency again… and so on. So you can see how easily you can create a negative feedback loop for yourself.

By applying the new scientific model that Quantum Physics has given us to work with, we can change our destiny and improve our lives astoundingly. Quantum physics tells us that the quantum field (or universe, whichever you prefer) will constantly respond to the signal you are constantly sending out (often involuntarily or sometimes unconsciously) and will send back to you something on the same frequency that you are sending out on. So, instead of being at the mercy of “Newtonian” cause and effect (in terms of something unpleasant from the outer reality producing an unpleasant reaction in your personal inner reality), quantum physics says that you can learn to cause an effect in your life, or produce a result in the outer reality which you have deliberately originated from your inner reality. AND THEN YOUR LIFE CHANGES!

Newtonian Verses Quantum

So the new quantum physics is reversing (Uranus) the notion of the old Newtonian (Saturnian) science. Instead of an event (cause) in the outer reality producing an effect in your inner reality, from your inner reality you affect a cause in the outer reality! The quantum field is responding to you, rather than you responding to the quantum field. You are no longer a ”victim” of cause and effect. You become the creator, who has caused an effect! (the creator you were always meant to be). Instead of re-acting inside your inner reality to something coming from the outer reality, you pro-act: you have done something pro-active inside your inner reality and created a change in the outer reality. You are starting out on an entirely different pathway!

As human beings, we feel a deep need to break out of our “programming” (same old same old). The “same old same old” can be seen as the status quo (Saturn). That spark of “rebellion” against the status quo is a symbol of the slowly strengthening Aquarian age, growing within each and every one of us. And with Uranus in pioneering Aries at the moment, that spark is especially strong. Even though things look a bit grim at the moment on the world scene, there are fantastic liberations for all of humanity coming, and this liberating quantum physics knowledge is one of them. And true liberation begins deep inside each and every one of us.

When we continually react (re-act) to the Outer reality affecting us inside our Inner reality (thereby creating more of the same), we become robots, stuck inside the robotic system of our own programming. We become POO (Prisoners Of Ourselves 🙂 )


The Earth Plane (Saturn) and the Heavens (Uranus)

Saturn seems to be the ruler of this earthly dimension of existence we find ourselves in; gravity pushing heavily down on us, limits and boundaries (and obligations) everywhere, and objectives that take a long TIME to achieve. Quantum physicists tell us that the quantum field operates on another dimension that is beyond time, space and location. In other words, there is no such thing as time and location in the quantum field. Everything is one, including our past, present and future. This is vastly different to our Saturn-ruled earth plane, where time (Old Father Time) and “location, location, location” are so important (especially to Capricorn Real Estate sales people) 🙂 The “Heavens” (which is where the quantum field presumably resides) is where we create the reality we shall experience here on earth. So this advanced knowledge is sort of “Fire from the Gods’ in a way. A lightning bolt of liberating knowledge from the heavens (hey there Prometheus, nice to see you back).

Saturn definitely has its place, but it needs to be fed. It needs to be fed inspiration. Uranus can provide this inspiration. Uranus can be extreme about changing stern Saturn’s status quo, but Uranus can also work in cooperation with Saturn to create valuable new ways of doing old things, and upgrade old, outdated systems (Windows Eleven anyone?) And under the benevolent rays of Saturn (in Sagittarius, the sign of philosophy and expansion) trining Uranus (in Aries, the sign that represents pioneering exciting new things in challenging and cutting edge ways), a lot more people will come to accept the exciting facts that quantum physics has exposed and is offering to all of us, and thereby find personal liberation. (And of course, with Saturn in Jupiter’s sign, the Jupiter-Uranus interactions operating during 2017 are helping out here as well in terms of shifting Saturn’s viewpoint).

Do you know that if you wish to listen (do you wish to listen?) to a radio station on the A.M. frequency band and you are not getting very good reception, the more people that decide to tune into that particular station’s frequency, the better the reception of that station will become for you and the easier it becomes for everyone to receive and listen to that station? It’s the same when anchoring and fluidly applying exciting new knowledge (morphic resonance, or the hundredth monkey principle).

So this blog post, among other things, is about me personally ‘testifying’ in a way. When I put this info out there into the airwaves for others to benefit from, it strengthens the whole vibration within me. And I know good things will come back.

“Re-invent Thyself”, “Re-Mind” Yourself

This type of liberating knowledge may be quickly labelled as “hocus pocus”, or “magical thinking”, or “New Age” by some, but the wonderful new liberating science of Quantum Physics is now offering concrete proof that this is the way it really is  (wake up, scientists are saying it 🙂 )

Saturn and Uranus both rule Aquarius (and the advancing Aquarian age) – liberation and equality for all, (and hopefully a bit of friendship), and there is a definite transition going on. Hop aboard the liberation train! (The Saturn-Chiron square is also contributing to this state of affairs during 2017, but more about that another time).



Which Astrological Sign Will Planet Nine Rule?

November 19, 2016

It is late October 2016 and I have just read about “Planet Nine” in the news. Planet Nine is a hypothetical planet that orbits the outer reaches of our solar system, well beyond Neptune and Pluto; in fact about 20 times further out than Neptune does, from the Sun.

Planet Nine is rumoured to be a massive planet – from 5 to 20 times bigger than the Earth, and it may even be responsible for tipping the Sun slightly on its axis (a 6 degree tilt). Because Planet Nine is such a massive planet, it pulls on the orbits of several asteroids and elongates those orbits. That is one of the reasons why astronomers feel fairly confident that Planet Nine is actually out there, without having physically seen it through a telescope at this stage. (For a long time I have wondered why Pluto has such an elliptical orbit compared to the rest of the planets – could Planet Nine have something to do with this?)

Planet Nine is a (hypothetical at this stage) world that orbits our Sun in a giant ellipse, at a distance of 40 to over 100 billion miles away. It is estimated that it will take Planet Nine between 10 to 20,000 years to complete a full orbit of the Sun.

Because Planet Nine is at least 5,000 times the mass of Pluto, there will be no debate amongst astronomers about whether it is a “true” planet or not (sorry Pluto, size DOES count when it comes to astronomers and their personal opinions 🙂

Wikipedia tells me that if Planet Nine is physically discovered (by being spotted with a telescope), it will likely be given a name chosen from Roman or Greek mythology. A new planet’s mythological identity can be a very helpful clue for astrologers trying to determine its astrological nature – as has been evidenced in the case of Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron, amongst others. So what is it with that? How come the mythology for Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron fits so well? How can something from the past tell us about the future? Why was/is this knowledge already present – even before we “discover” the planet? Does it not cross your mind that we may perhaps be rediscovering these planets?

The Old System Of Planetary Rulerships

 In the old traditional planetary rulership system, the twelve astrological signs were ruled by seven planets. Because there weren’t enough planets to go round to make it possible for each sign to have its own ruling planet, some of the planets ruled two signs.

As the planets move outward from the centre of our solar system (in terms of astrological planetary rulership order), they go: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

And in terms of the astrology chart wheel and the signs they rule, they also move outward, in both directions, from the starting sign of Leo.

A test For Your Visualizing Skills

If you are not an especially visual person, in order to help you visualize this concept, it might be easier if you have an actual astrology chart form in front of you. Put the sign of Leo right at the bottom of the wheel. The Sun rules Leo. The Moon rules Cancer (one sign to the left of Leo heading in a clockwise direction). Mercury rules two signs: Gemini (one more sign to the left in a clockwise direction) and Virgo (one sign to the right of Leo in an anticlockwise direction). Venus rules Taurus (three signs to the left of Leo in a clockwise direction) and Libra (two signs to the right of Leo in an anticlockwise direction). The trend continues with Mars, which rules Aries (four signs to the left of Leo in a clockwise direction) and Scorpio (three signs to the right of Leo in an anticlockwise direction). Jupiter rules Pisces (five signs to the left of Leo in a clockwise direction) and Sagittarius (four signs to the right of Leo in an anticlockwise direction).

That leaves only Aquarius and Capricorn, which sit next to each other at the top of the wheel. These two signs, such a long way from Leo on the wheel, are both ruled by Saturn (which was the last planet out from the Sun in those days). The circle is complete.

So you can see that as we have moved around the astrology chart wheel away from Leo in both directions, we have also followed the astrological planetary order outward from the Sun (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, ending with Saturn). This distinct pattern is important in terms of what comes next.

So, with the old system of rulerships, we had a nice, tidy package. But then Uranus came along and upset the apple cart.

The New Rulership System

 Uranus, discovered in 1781, took over the rulership of Aquarius from Saturn. So poor old Saturn was reduced to ruling only one sign (Capricorn). What a shocking loss of status for Saturn. So notice that on the astrology chart wheel, we are now moving to the left, back toward Leo, in an anticlockwise direction. And then in 1846, Neptune was discovered. More confusion. Neptune took over the rulership of Pisces, and Jupiter was left ruling only one sign (Sagittarius). Notice that we have moved one more sign to the left on the wheel in an anticlockwise direction, on a continuing journey back in toward the sign of Leo at the bottom of the wheel. In terms of the planetary order, we are also moving back inward toward the Sun (Saturn to Jupiter to Mars to Venus and so on)

So, following this trend, Pluto (discovered in 1930) should have taken over Aries, which is the next sign moving to the left in an anticlockwise direction. It sort of did in a way, but it took over the other sign that Mars rules – Scorpio. So here we have a new pattern starting up. The newly discovered planet now has a choice about which of the two signs, that Mars rules, to take over.

A Hypothetical Theory For A Hypothetical Planet

So, following this new pattern, bearing in mind that we are still moving in toward Leo on the wheel, and inward toward the Sun via the planetary order, the next planet to be discovered will take over one of the two signs that Venus rules, which happen to be Taurus and Libra.

Here is an interesting clue (from Wikipedia) concerning Planet Nine’s orbit: “The aphelion or farthest point from the Sun would be in the general direction of the constellations of Orion and Taurus, and the perihelion (the nearest point to the Sun) would be in the general direction of the southerly areas of Serpens, Ophiuchus, and Libra.” (My italics)

I find that to be an interesting astronomical clue in terms of the astrological theory I am putting forth.

So if planet Nine does exist and it does end up taking over one of the two Venus-ruled signs of Taurus and Libra, which sign do you think it would take over?

I would put my bet on Taurus. Because, to me, Venus feels more natural as the ruler of Libra.

Certain astronomers speculate that there may well be more planets hiding in the outer fringe of our solar system.

If so, the next planet to be discovered (following the pattern) would take over one of the two signs that Mercury rules (Gemini and Virgo). Personally, I would favour Virgo myself.

And then the zodiac wheel would be complete, with twelve planets ruling twelve signs!

The Sun Passing Through Libra

October 8, 2016

This is a time of looking at all the relationships you have in your life. Not just relationships with other people, but the relationship between the factions you have going on inside you. Deep within your inner world. It is a time of examining the balance between these factions.

The balance between work and leisure time.

The balance between friendship and detachment or avoidance.

The balance between embracing someone and condemning them.

The balance between fear and confidence.

The balance between poverty and abundance.

Between lack of and lots of.

Between loneliness and warm, contented companionship.

Between serving yourself and serving others.

Between pleasing yourself and pleasing others.

Between fostering relationships and burning bridges.

Between being demanding, and undemanding and content.

How much do you give, and how much do you take?

Between when to indulge, and when not to indulge.

Between when to speak, and when to hold your tongue.

Between caring too much about what other people think, and not caring at all.

How true are you to yourself, and how much do you allow your behaviour to be influenced by others?

At a certain point during the Sun’s passage through Libra, the amount of darkness on Earth and light on Earth are equal (12 hours each).

The balance between love and hate, darkness and light.

As a famous Libran by the name of John Lennon (who also had the Moon in Aquarius) once said: Give peace a chance.

Can you see the balance operating between the two examples, and the polarity between them? (for example, Aries is about Self, and Libra is about “the other”, but they are both about relationships, which is the polarity). The oppositions in your chart (if you have any) are like that too.

A client gave me an example recently of Mars in Scorpio opposite Moon in Taurus in her chart. She explained that Mars in Scorpio feels like she is furiously swimming underwater in order to achieve something, and Moon in Taurus feels like calmness, contentment and relaxation, and that abundance is coming to her. Both of these signs are about money/income/assets (amongst other things). Scorpio rules other people’s money, while Taurus rules personal income (and the self-worth needed to obtain it).

So there is the opposition and opposite poles (swimming furiously, and relaxing) and the polarity (money).

Your Nodes (North Node and South Node) are like that also (and everyone has Nodes). They are like a stick which has two different ends, yet those ends are connected.

Which end are you operating from? What does your balance look like there? How much of your life are you living through your South Node, and how much through your North Node?

Are you living ‘comfortably’ (South Node) or do you put yourself out there and challenge yourself? (North Node).

And to end this brief article, we shall end with the words of that famous Libran, John Lennon (who also had the Moon in Aquarius just to add a bit more air): Imagine all the people, living life in peace. You may say, I’m a dreamer (idealist), but I’m just an Air sign with the Moon in Aquarius.  🙂





Aries to Pisces: An Astrological Journey

July 3, 2016

It is interesting how the signs, from Aries through to Pisces, tell a continuing and changing story, and how each sign changes the focus of the one preceding it.

Just to be different, lets start with Pisces: We are all One (we come from Spirit, and we return to Spirit, each and every one of us. We Are, as One, and in more than just the relationship sense of relating to one other person)

Aries: I Am (my self, my individuality, my ego self and my personal challenges – I have separated from the womb of Pisces where I was One with my mother)

Taurus: I Have (all of my possessions, including my self worth and physical bodily attributes – this is MY body)

Gemini: I Think (and I am full of ideas and I communicate and I multi-task really well)

Cancer: I Feel (and I collect photos, feelings and emotional experiences, and I am very sensitive)

Leo: I Create (wonderful, fun creations, and even though I am a generous person with a big heart and I do a lot for others, I am quite a self-absorbed person)

And after that, the signs seem to incorporate the larger world and outer reality a lot more.

The service oriented Virgo (I Serve, and in doing so I sacrifice myself for others, just like my opposite sign of Pisces)

The relationship-focused Libra (We Are, as opposed to opposite sign Aries’ “I Am”)

Scorpio’s “I Desire” (intense, personal, focused pursuit, that definitely does include other people!)

Sagittarius: “I See, and I Seek”: “I find other people’s philosophies really interesting -oh, what an interesting way of looking at life, I could talk about that for hours, and I wonder what the truth really is”… and I better move on to the next sign before it takes up all of this article… 🙂

Concrete Capricorn: “I Learn, and I Teach” (Black and White, this is the way it is – ‘Reality’ and the rules, and this is my structure. My way or the highway. Don’t bother me with philosophies; I have ‘concretised’ my philosophy on life, and this is the way it is)

Aquarius: “I Know” (Don’t try to lecture me or tell me what to do. I want to break all the rules, rules are made to be broken, I like to pursue alternative ways of doing things, predictability is boring, it’s time for a change, I’ve had enough of the ‘same old same old’. I sense a better way, and I’m going to manifest it down here on earth)

And back to compassionate Pisces: “I Believe” (We are all souls, living in these physical bodies. I try not to judge until I’ve walked a mile in someone else’s shoes; there but for the grace of God go I – we are all one).
