Reader “Lost in Life” (hereafter “LiL”) writes the following:
I am in a real mess rightnow. I have lost the relationship of my life, he just broke up a week ago
(and more, but it has been omitted because some is a bit personal).
First of all, let me say that our posts and discussions on this blog (or any other blog) are no substitute for appropriate professional advice of any kind. They are not substitutes for legal, medical, psychological, financial or anything other remotely similar kind of advice. In fact, if you want detailed personal astrological advice, then you should consult a local astrologer personally. Furthermore, the focus on this blog is the analysis of patterns and mostly fairly abstract speculation about world events.
But, lately, I have made an exception and have been performing a few analyses for fun. Soon, the other part(s) of my life will become busy, and I simply will not be able to answer many, likely most, of your posts. And, when I do, the answers may come anywhere from two weeks to two months later. If you can handle that, then feel free to ask.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s proceed with this analysis.
LiL has some profound life challenges. In the language of some, she has “lost everything.” That is rarely true, and we suspect that she does have some resources available. But, this is a difficult period for her. In addition to a breakup with her sweetheart, she has had to return to India from London. As she writes, we come to believe that London is truly home for her despite her heritage. We have a saying that describes a similar situation here in Texas: “I wasn’t born a Texan, but I got here as soon as I could.” Personally, I feel that way about Dallas (obviously including Plano).
Without any further details, here is LiL’s chart:

As in some other cases, we used Allen Edwall’s program Astro123 to produce that chart.
LiL correctly observes that she has quite a bit of 12th house activity. To be sure, this is never easy. At UAC98, someone once asked an astrologer named Lee Lehman “What should we do about the 12th house?” Without missing a beat, she quipped, “get rid of it.”
LiL has her Sun, Mercury, and Uranus in the 12th. The North Node (Fate) is there also. If you read this blog, then you know that Uranus (aka Prometheus) is about “surprises.” It is also about enlightenment. LiL struggles with the question of whether or not she has a stroke of genius or a stroke of insanity on a regular basis. What is difficult to tell is whether it causes her more pain or those close to her. We suspect that she feels the most pain.
She has a hidden gift here: Mercury is essentially conjunct Uranus. LiL can tap ideas that are genius, or near genius at times. The planets are in the 12th, and (in addition to representing delusions, deception, and alcohol & drug abuse) that can represent psychic ability. This combination is a bit like a wild horse. In an untamed form, it can (and often does) destroy the possessor. With proper cultivation and training, it can be one of the greatest gifts imaginable. And, Mercury/Uranus is associated with writers.
Sun near ascendant is squared by Saturn at Midheaven. This is a similar situation. Sun/Saturn in angular positions brings lifelong tribulations but can produce individuals made of iron. Saturn at midheaven is associated with academics in general and brilliant writers in particular. This is a second confirmation of the ability to write brilliantly.
Furthermore LiL has three (3) “fated” planets (last three degrees of a sign): Moon in Pisces, Chiron in Aries, and Jupiter in Taurus. Note that the three are in sequence. Once one is aspected, then so are the other two. LiL’s recent life events correspond to (1) a series of oppositions against the planets in her Scorpio stellium (which also includes Mars) followed by (2) aspects to Moon, Jupiter, and Chiron (in that sequence, and almost simultaneously). This last sequence is the part that went “boom” in her life. Jupiter is usually benevolent, but not in LiL’s case.
Something like this happens every twelve years because Jupiter has a twelve year orbit, and a milder version happens at six year intervals. Further subdividing the twelve year orbit, sometimes three year points can be significant depending on what else is happening. Here is a transit list for points both in the past and future:
As with our other readers, we recommend that LiL make a list of events that happened on, or near, these dates. Since these are Jupiter transits, the events may have happened “near” the dates (due to an activating event such as a New Moon, Full Moon, Mercury station, or something similar). Contact us regarding the results, and we can proceed from there.
