Mars Retrograde in Aries: War: What Is It Good For?

Mars Retrograde in Aries: War: What Is It Good For?

Mars entered the sign of his rulership, Aries, on June 28th 2020 for an extended stay until January 6 2021 due to his rare retrograde in his own sign and things are getting heated! I did a video earlier that spoke to the impact of Mars in Aries for each sign. Look at both Rising Sign and Sun sign if you know them Mars rarely goes retrograde in his own sign and the last two times were in 1941 from Sept 6th to Nov 10th (23˚ Aries to 11˚ Aries) and 1988 from August 26th to Oct 28th (11˚ Aries to 29˚ Aquarius). 1941 was the middle of World War 2 and the Retrograde period brought the atomic program that would become the Manhattan Project and, shortly after, the attack on Pearl Harbor that caused the US and Britain to declare war on Japan and for the US to enter the War. Incidentally, Bernie Sanders was born during this rare retrograde and his chart is activated majorly by this retrograde. That felt like a good omen to me but he’s withdrawn from the race to be the Democratic Nominee so we’ll have to see. 1988 brought the realization that 50k Kurds had been killed by Iraq and shortly after the retrograde Gorbachev became the head of the Soviet Union, first female Prime Minister of a Muslim country was elected (Bhutto in Pakistan), the PLO proclaiming the State of Palestine, the Armenian Earthquake that killed 25–50k and the Lockerbie bombing. Mars in Aries contributes to turbulent times for sure. Mars is the God of War and in Aries anger is...
Bernie Sanders: President For the Age of Aquarius?

Bernie Sanders: President For the Age of Aquarius?

Last week I wrote the first blog post in a while, it’s called Another Big Leap, if you missed it.  In it I said that I would be sharing my activism alongside other things. None of my activism is to convince politically, though most of you know I just adore Bernie Sanders. I may want to convince you to go more green in your life but I would never tell you how to vote. This post, however, is going to be about Bernie Sanders and why I think he is the candidate for the beginning of the Aquarian age. I hope you will find it interesting. I may look at other candidates charts in the coming days and please note this is not a prediction as such because I find that prediction in astrology is very often wrong. It’s my opinion that he fits for the new paradigm and I explain why, astrologically. One of the main reasons I feel that Bernie Sanders is destined to be either the President, or to change the face of politics in the USA, is that he is now going through his fourth Nodal return. His North Node is at 22 degrees and 43 mins of Virgo and his actual exact Nodal Return was on January 24th and is still in orb (meaning he will still be feeling it). His North Node is right at the top of his chart, if the time is correct, in Virgo, the sign of service. A Nodal return is a date with destiny. It often brings a big change in our lives. It brings a change of...

Love, Equality and Revolution

Today is a Full Moon in the sign of Libra and is a very powerful Full Moon at that because of other Astrological configurations. Before I talk about some of the other energies that make this a particularly potent full moon let me talk about Libra. Libra is the sign of balance, justice, relationships, art and social justice. It is no coincidence that scales are the symbol for many of the High Courts. In its shadow Libra can also have a tendency to seek peace at any price (to itself), be indecisive and have difficulty saying no. The greatest of balancing acts, and one that Libra teaches us, is the balancing act between self and others Libra is an air sign and air signs have an agile mind and are good communicators who can emphasize the intellect above all else. Often an appearance of sweetness and that of a light breeze but with the power of a gale force wind behind it. It’s all about movement and Libras evolutionary path is to develop the self through encounters with others and, thereby learning to balance the need for peace with the talent for challenging unjust situations rather than erring on one side or the other. The Full Moon is always an opposition to the Sun and the Sun is currently in Aries which is Warrior energy. Direct, energizing and pioneering. In the shadow it can be aggressive, volatile and reactionary. Now Libra full moon is ALWAYS opposite the Aries sun but what makes this Full Moon so powerful is that Mars, the ruling planet of Aries, is also in opposition....
