Some time over a decade ago, and before I started this blog, I discovered the work of Jonathon Cainer.  He was a standard “Sun sign” style newspaper astrologer in the UK, but he was also much more than that.  His daily entries had a remarkable quality to them that I describe as “philosophical.”  While others, myself included, would focus in on the details of what, say, a Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun type full moon had to say, Cainer would zoom out and speak in lyrical words of poetry about the bigger picture of such a turn of events.

He was, in a word, inspiring.

So, I was disappointed to discover this morning, May 19th, that he had passed away on May 2nd of this year, 2016.  No chance now of him reading that email that I kept thinking about sending him for years but then not sending because I wanted to remain anonymous.  No chance of somehow showing up in England and having a chance encounter where I might speak to him for a moment.  The windows are closed, and the best I can do is an analysis of his birth and death charts (based on available data) in his memory.

His birth chart is remarkable, having both a Stretched Pentagram and a Diamond in it.  These tend to be rather rare, and he had both of them.  We show the birth chart for the Stretched Pentagram first:

Cainer (Birth, Stretched Pentagram)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

It is the kind of chart, from the perspective of patterns, that is nothing short of amazing.  Here is the birth chart, again, with the Diamond highlighted:

Cainer (Birth, Diamond, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Much of the Diamond and Stretched Pentagram overlap.  The evening of Winter’s Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World as We Know It”) had a Diamond in it, and while 2012 came and went without the end of the world, we can say that this period of years, marked by the Uranus / Pluto squares (or, as Cainer called it: “the bell tolls seven times”) has been remarkable in changes and upheaval (“Arab Spring,” “Black Lives Matter,” the dominance of “smart phones” in our collective lives, the candidacy of Donald Trump for President, etc.)

Cainer had other patterns also.  He had a “Square Key” which is really two interlocked “Huber Learning Triangles.”  These tell us what his biography said: he worked through some rather intense “karma” to reach the point he did in life.  Life was not particularly easy for him in the beginning, and arguably it was probably fairly tough even after he had acquired fortune and fame.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

Cainer (Birth, Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Just in case that was not enough, he also had a “Double Yod Key” (DYK).  This tells us he was face with many tough decisions, the kind where you always look back and wonder “what if I had taken the other path”?  Filtered for DYK:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yod Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The DYK is hard to see because it is built into his other patterns.  But, if we filter for yods, we find three of them, and they are a bit more obvious:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yods)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is NOT an “easy” life.  It is spent worrying about “what if” I had done something else.  But Cainer was also born with the ability to accomplish much, and he did.

Cainer (Birth, Rosetta, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we see a Rosetta in the birth chart.  We interpret this as “unstable alliances,” and from what we know this was true as well.  He moved back and forth between newspapers as shifting alliances pushed him to do just that.

If we filter for a Grand Cross we do not find one, but if we filter for T-Squares, then a slightly “loose” Grand Cross is obviously present (and a source of tremendous energy and the ability to “get things done”):

Cainer (Birth, T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A 5th Harmonic filter shows a triangular pattern (two quintiles and a biquintile) involving Mars, Pallas, and Venus:

Cainer (Birth, 5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We might add here that his highly activated Neptune near Midheaven is an indicator of psychic abilities.  It can also indicate alcohol or drug problems or some kind of involvement (he did manage a bar at one point).  We suspect that he felt many people “pulling” on him.  (Neptune can be the savior / martyr complex as well.)

Seventh harmonic in the birth chart also contains a triangular pattern and is sufficiently activated to indicate, again, these “karmic” issues to work through:

Cainer (Birth, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Vesta/Hygeia, Neptune, and Sun compose the triangular pattern and indicate, again, both psychic abilities and physical illness as well.  (We suspect that long term / chronic illness may have plagued him but that he did not disclose it publicly.)

Now to the death chart.  A single pattern dominates: a hard rectangle!

Cainer (Death, Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One other pattern is present in the death chart: a Kite (if you are willing to use North / South lunar nodes):

Cainer (Death, Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the remainder of the kite is formed by Mercury and Pluto, both retrograde.  It is almost as if the cosmic said “OK we will give you a little more time to accomplish something, and then it is time to go.”  We may never know what that “something” was because it likely dealt with family and financial matters.  But he had received a reprieve of some kind from what was likely a “close call” of some kind earlier.  (Again, we will likely never be able to confirm or deny this.)  This kite also says that someone, somehow, greatly benefited from his death!  (What could that mean?)

Seventh Harmonic is also interesting:

Cainer (Death, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars, Astraea, and Sun are involved in a triangular 7th harmonic pattern (made of a TriSeptile and two BiSeptiles).  We wonder if some kind of legal issues were about to emerge at the time of his death.  (Again, we would bet that this is something private despite 2 out of 3 planets being above ground.)

Finally, we present the bi-wheel without patterns or much analysis except to note that his second Saturn return was upon him (and the one for the author of this blog is not too far away either).  Saturn returns often “take us home,” and that is what happened for him.

Cainer BiWheel

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have little more to add to this analysis, especially since we prefer our readers dig into it for themselves.  But, he was a giant in the field, and he will be missed.  And, as an aside, my own coming Saturn return leaves me rather “nervous.”

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

We have been analyzing disasters and shootings less lately in favor of forecasts and similar analysis.  Previously, we have produced a chart analysis for Adam Lanza, the West, TX Fertilizer plant explosion, the Orbital Sciences Antares Rocket explosion, the Philadelphia Amtrak wreck, the Marysville school shootings, and the Boston Marathon bombing.  That said, we will provide a chart and preliminary analysis of the San Bernardino shootings on December 2, 2015.  We note, also, that this attack comes only a few weeks after the massacre of 130 people in Paris by ISIS based terrorists.

Click here for our Calendar Page for Wednesday, December 2nd.  The event occurred two days before perfection of Mercury square Jupiter, an amplifier of either good will or bad intent.  For practical purposes, that aspect applies here.  The event also occurred four days before perfection of Mars square Pluto, perhaps the most dangerous of all aspects, and, again, for practical purposes that aspect applies here.  Saturn square Neptune, a very slow moving aspect that governs weeks and months, perfected for the first time (of three) on November 26th.  Again, that is so close (Saturn has a 28 year orbit; Neptune a 160 year orbit), that it applies here.  All of this, together, is a bit tough.

We present the chart, based on the reported time of 10:59 AM PST and filtered for T-Squares:

2015-12-02 San Bernardino Shootings (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We count ten squares and four oppositions in that chart.  Frankly, that seems rather high.  But we think that the critically important events occurred earlier in the day, during this window:

Solar Fire Gold  Dec 4 2015
Electional Search Results
Criteria:  FIND  (Chart contains Thor’s Hammer)
Search From: Dec 2 2015  0:00 am
Search To:   Dec 2 2015  11:59:59 pm
Status:      Finished – 1 matches
Enters   Dec 2 2015 1:46:53 am (CST +6:00)
Leaves Dec 2 2015 6:17:32 am (CST +6:00)
We think that the critical events occurred in this window, that this was when the decisions were made that would mean “this was the day” that they had planned for.  And, within that window, we will hazard a guess that the critical turning point occurred at, or near, the entry of the Moon in to Virgo.  That yields this particular Thor’s Hammer chart:
2015-12-02 San Bernardino (Moon enters Virgo + TH)
[Click Image to Enlarge]
Note that (1) Moon had recently perfected a conjunction to Astraea (issues of justice), (2) Moon moved into Earth (Earth tends to lack compassion, refer to Adam Lanza chart as a comparison) and (3) we have a Thor’s Hammer (again, compare the Adam Lanza natal chart) that activates (a) Uranus and (b) Pluto (that pesky Uranus / Pluto square, again, that we keep talking about).  Also noteworthy: (1) Mars has just risen (and is in 12th house of religion (and delusions) and (2) Uranus (explosions, among other things) is setting.

Since this is a preliminary analysis, we will hold any further commentary until more information is available.  (Particularly, we would like birth information for the shooters, should that ever become available.)  For an alternative analysis, posted on Astrotheme, click here.  Another analysis is located here.  Astrology Weekly has a discussion located here.

We also recommend reviewing the surrounding aspects this month, available by clicking on this link for an Excel chart of Sunout aspects.  And, for an overview of patterns in November and December 2015, click this link.  If you are interested in Longer Term Forecasts (outer planets or “generational planets”), click here.


Chart Analysis for MM born 1954-04-03

November 28, 2015 at 5:40 am | Posted in Astrology, ExampleCharts, NatalChartAnalysis, Patterns | 3 Comments

I have not done an individual chart online for several years, and this will be the first.  (I still have several others “in the queue” yet to be done.)

Reader MM wrote the following:

“Just saw this. Suffering PTSD from beng target of years of governmnet corruption and having antire city hate me in Philadelphia. Birthday April 3, 1954 3:04 am Oakland CA, I think Chiron is stationing direct on my Mercury as I write this. The struggle with so many injuries and terror is intense. Thanks MM.”

I have anonymized the original entry.

To be fair, I did take the name you offered and ran an internet search.  Needless to say, I cannot verify any information beyond that.  That said….

You are doing what you need to be doing, and I think you already know that.  If you are who you say you are, then you already know that you are a warrior and mystic both, and you take on challenges that others cannot or will not.  Although I can understand this from what I have read on the internet (you are moderately famous in certain circles), your chart (which I ran first) confirms this.  But, where to begin?

You have a number of patterns in your chart, and patterns are my specialty.  Other astrologers can speak to individual aspects or houses or progressions or whatever, but my strength is patterns and what they have been built from.  That is what we will focus upon.

Your patterns include: (1) T-Squares; (2) Grand Trines; (3) a Yod (a single Yod, a fundamental decision that you periodically re-evaluate in your life); (4) a Mystic Rectangle (probably both the source of your strength and the reason you just will not walk away from conflicts); and (5) probably the highest number of Kites I have ever seen in a natal chart.

We will begin with the T-Squares.   Natal Sun in Aries tends to be associated with both leadership and open conflict, but with your numerous T-Squares conflict is a way of life.  It has always been with you, and it will always be with you even if you do sometimes tire of it.  Here is your natal chart, filtered for the T-Squares:

MM done 2015-11-28 SAT (T-Squares)

[Click on Image to Enlarge]

Based on discovery of one of your blogs, I know that you already know how to read this.  Perhaps you are another astrologer who is “testing” me.  But, if your birth chart is accurate, then that is exactly what you would do.  With this many squares, you run TOWARDS conflict rather than away.  (But, again, you already know this.)

You also have a number of Grand Trines.  You have so many that, if you did not have the numerous T-Squares, you might never get out of your chair.  (Grand Trines are gifts, but they tend to make people very, very lazy.)  Since these are fire trines, you can be inspirational, and you often motivate others to do your work for you.  You have no trouble whatsoever delegating and sending others out on a mission.

Here is your chart, filtered for the Grand Trines:

MM done 2015-11-28 SAT (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars is very important to Aries, and yours is at 26 Sadge.  Sadge can be many things, including Universities and foreign travel.  It is certainly religion (along with Pisces).  Sadge is the sign of the Pope (metaphorically, not literally), and we would expect you to “get things done” by being a church leader.  Mars is also the single planet in Sadge that completes ALL of your Grand Trines, making this relationship pivotally important.

Your life is dominated by a series of fundamental decisions, and an argument can be made that you make the same fundamental decision repeatedly although it make wear slightly different clothes at different times.  This decision is illustrated by the Yod in your chart:

MM done 2015-11-28 SAT (Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The issue you have to decide between includes (a) North Node at the apex (hard work and “karma” that you work through repeatedly); (b) Jupiter on one leg (religion, universities, law and legal environments, and foreign travel / foreigners); and (c) Pallas on the other leg (innovations and smart ideas, particularly regarding going to war with someone).  Note that, at any given time, you can have (b) OR (c) but NOT BOTH.  You may be able to harness people via religion to “get things done” but chances are good you will ultimately alienate them.  So, you can go to war (quite effectively) or you can have the gifts of Jupiter (religion, education, law and legal issues, and travel) but not both.  (Law and legal environments might be a sort of exception.  But chances are good you can sustain that, and you will likely tire of any one issue.)

You have MANY kites, which means you “came in” with many gifts / opportunities.  Chances are good that you know this, and you have likely seized the ones you can.  The numerous kites in your chart tell us this.  (I have never seen another NATAL chart with this many kites except, maybe, Hillary Clinton’s.  And, yours are more focused than hers.)  Here is the chart, filtered for kites:

MM done 2015-11-28 SAT (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, you have a Mystic Rectangle.  These are rare to begin with, and I have only seen them in two natal charts that I have worked with.  (The other chart is Hillary Clinton‘s.)  It gives you powerful gifts, but they are so powerful that you cannot resist the challenges even when you should.  Here is your chart, filtered for the Mystic Rectangles:

MM done 2015-11-28 SAT (Mystic Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

In an odd way, you remind me of the fictitious character Marty McFly:

 Sometimes it might behoove you to “just walk away.”  Except, of course, that you cannot do that.  Like Marty, that might ultimately be your downfall.

Lamar Odom hospitalized

Anthony Louis - Astrology & Tarot Blog

According to ESPN:

“Former NBA and reality TV star Lamar Odom was hospitalized Tuesday after he was found unconscious…  authorities were called at about 3:15 p.m. to Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, about 70 miles outside of Las Vegas, for a report of an unresponsive man needing an ambulance.”

Are there indications in his birth chart of these events?

Lamar Odom was born in NYC on November 6, 1979, time unknown.  I cast a sunrise chart with Placidus houses to get a sense of his natal chart and placed the transits for time time the authorities were called to attend to him in Nevada on Tuesday, October 15, 2015:

Ambulance called (outside) to attend to unconscious Lamar Odom (inside whee natal chart, sunrise, time unknown). Ambulance called (outside) to attend to unconscious Lamar Odom (inside whee natal chart, sunrise, time unknown).

Striking in this chart is the transiting Sun exactly conjunct his natal Pluto which lies opposite transiting Uranus along the cusps of the Placidus…

Here is the SR Chart for former President Bill Clinton, filtered for Thor’s Hammer patterns (which seem prevalent in his chart).  We suspect that this will be a year of conflict for him, and, if not conflict, then he will be very “busy.”  (Not surprising given that his wife has announced a Presidential bid.)

Here is the chart:

Bill Clinton 2015 SR (Thor's Hammers)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This chart incorporates an existing T-Square that was part of a Grand Cross on the previous day.  In addition to a powerful Sun/Saturn square, we note that Vesta issues (traditions, and sometimes kinky sex) are particularly important in this set of patterns in this particular Solar Return.  We note, also, a powerful Focused Yod occurs on this date. and others have noted the Venus/Uranus Trine on this day.

A bit more about Vesta:

Astrological Patterns for Hillary Rodham Clinton

Astrological Patterns for Hillary Rodham Clinton: A Natal Chart Analysis

First, let me state my position: I am neither particularly a HRC fan or detractor.  I agree with her on some issues (diplomacy) and (vehemently) disagree with her on other issues (gun control).  So, as much as possible, I will make this a neutral analysis and try to be fair.  (AND I think I am capable of doing that.)

This is a complex chart with many patterns, something this is not true of all birth charts.  We list the patterns in groups:

1.  Hele patterns (multiple): Hillary tends to polarize people into strong allegiances that last over time

2. Rosetta patterns (multiple): Hillary also forms many temporary allegiances that can be characterized as treacherous at times (both for and against her)

3. Mystic Rectangle: Perhaps her defining pattern.  It highlights (1) just how much Bill’s betrayal (the Lewinsky scandal) bothered her and (2) her ongoing interest in healthcare issues.  The Mystic Rectangle tends to be a rather rare pattern.

4.  Kites and Grand Trines (multiple): she has more “luck” than anyone can imagine.  Maybe she should just play the lotto and retire.  Then again, maybe American politics IS the lotto.

5.  Grand Cross: it gives her the energy to do an AMAZING amount of work, but it also leads to significant conflict with others.  Like the Mystic Rectangle, the Grand Cross is a relatively rare pattern.

We will show her natal chart repeatedly, but each time it will be filtered for different patterns:

First, we show the Hele patterns (when two or more are interlaced, we call this a “Hele Key”):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Hele Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

These patterns emphasize her ability to (1) form long term allegiances at the price of (2) polarizing people.  If you are truly her friend, she will stick by you through thick and thin.  But, it can be difficult to know whether or not your are truly her friend (only she really knows), and if you betray her there will be HELL TO PAY.

Here is her natal chart filtered for the Rosetta pattern (MANY of these; arguably a “Rosetta Key”):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Rosetta)

[Click to Enlarge]

The are short term allegiances that frequently sour and can turn to treachery.  It does not mean that SHE is treacherous, but it does mean that someone takes advantage of someone eventually.  She likely becomes skilled at becoming the winner in these conflicts over the course of her lifetime, especially given her other patterns (notably the Kites).  I count at least FOUR of these in play.  (That is, by itself, unusual.)  If you interact with her, then the big question becomes this one: is this a temporary allegiance (Rosetta) or a true long term alliance (Hele)?

Mystic Rectangle: we think that of all the patterns present, this one defines her (but the Grand Cross is a close second):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Mystic Rectangle)

[Click to Enlarge]

We note the four planets involved: (1) Sun in Scorpio (12th House); (2) Ceres in Taurus (6th House); (3) Juno in Sagittarius (2nd House); and (4) Hygeia in Cancer (8th House).  Interpretations: (1) Sun in Scorpio in 12th: she is very powerful at working behind the scenes.  Can she be a President and still do this? (2) Ceres in Taurus in 6th: economic woes (feast and famine); will this translate to the same pattern for the nation (BIG ups and downs!); (3) Juno in Sadge in 2nd: the Betrayed Wife of the Philandering Husband (yep, that really is who Juno is!); she was wounded by Bill far more than she will ever publicly admit; it was a BIG deal to her!  (4) Hygeia in 8th: She wants healthcare as an issue, but the 8th is tricky.  Maybe as a Scorpio she can pull it off.  But she better be careful about trying to cut the pay of nurses again.  In all fairness, I think she recognized her error and has made amends for it.

Juno in Sadge might be the most important planet for her as a person rather than a politician.  She is far more of a devoted wife and mother than she will ever let the public know.  This is because, as a Scorpio, she is afraid it might be seen as weakness.  But that Piscean Moon cares DEEPLY for her husband and daughter.  Truth be told, we will never know quite what she has gone through for them.

Hillary might can make the changes in healthcare that Obama has been trying to do if she is elected.  No doubt about it, except for the diplomacy issues (Middle East et al), healthcare *IS* her priority.

Kites and Grand Trines: again, I wish I had so many of these.  So do you.  That’s because ALMOST NO ONE has a chart that looks like this.  Kites tend to be “opportunity” and “luck.”  They are amplified Grand Trines.  She is almost drowning in them.

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Kites)

[Click to Enlarge]

I see at least three, but arguably four are present.  FOUR kites in a natal chart?  To speak in the vernacular: “ya gotta be kidding.”  Again, she could probably just play the lotto (repeatedly) and retire.  First house Jupiter confirms this.  But, the way she is configured, she would never do that.  That is particularly true with the Grand Cross.

Here are the Grand Trines:

Hillary Rodham Clinton (GrandTrines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

I count five (5) GT’s, and that means that FIVE Kites COULD be present.  Wow!  What else to say?  But GT’s can make a person lazy.  That would be true unless you have a T-Square or (even more powerful) a Grand Cross in the chart.  She DOES have a Grand Cross (and, like the Mystic Rectangle, these are comparatively RARE):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (GrandCross)

[Click to Enlarge]

The Grand Cross is her other “defining pattern,” second only to the Mystic Cross.  The Sun/Ceres opposition shows again, emphasizing the feast/famine issue in her life.  But, perhaps more interesting is the Astraea / Vesta opposition.  Justice opposite Tradition?  That is what she has, and it shows that Social Justice is, and always has been, a core issue in her life.  (I would say THE core issue, but we know from earlier that healthcare is at least as important as this one, and her family is most important of all.)

T-Squares: these are really almost superfluous after the Grand Cross, but we present them anyway to point out that she has an amazing amount of “energy”:

Hillary Rodham Clinton (T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Personally, I think she should recruit Al Gore to re-enter politics.

Finally, we present the chart in “Beginner” format with aspects with tightest orbs emphasized.  We note the Mercury square Saturn is particularly important with her (that says she has a remarkable attention to detail and will not tolerate anyone near her being “sloppy”), Mars / Pluto conjunction near Midheaven (she could either be warlike or somehow provoke war), and finally, the Mercury / Saturn / Moon Huber Learning Triangle (an HLT3) which shows, again, that she is willing to work to “earn” her “luck.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Beginner)

[Click to Enlarge]

Hillary Rodham Clinton (HLT3)

[Click to Enlarge]


This is meant to be a neutral review.  So, let’s be clear: if you are her enemy, chances are good she will destroy you.  She can be quite merciless.  And, frequently, people do not know where they stand with her.  She can be confusing (Scorpio/Pisces).  But, overall, she is benevolent and has good intent.  More than most others, she can effect real change in the healthcare system and with regard to social justice.  (Just leave our guns alone!)

It is possible she may be associated with a (big) war.

On that issue, let me say this: she is not a person to provoke a war by herself.  However, the people she chooses to surround herself with, and the allegiances that she forms, may lead to a situation in which no other meaningful choice exists.

This is a very good chart, and it would be a particularly powerful chart for a politician (as she is) or a top trial attorney or <smile> maybe even a lotto player.


Natal Chart for KT of Philadelphia

January 13, 2015 at 1:38 am | Posted in Astrology, NatalChartAnalysis | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

KT, Thanks for your inquiry.  Here is our analysis.  –GT

First, you are contacting me when you are (from a broad perspective) because you have started a series of oppositions that everyone goes through if they live long enough.  About age 42, give or take a year, we all have (1) transiting Saturn opposite natal Saturn, the biggest shakeup since our Saturn return circa age 28; (2) a Jupiter opposition; and (maybe the biggest) (3) transiting Uranus opposite natal Uranus.  Uranus tends to shake things up even more than Saturn, and we only go through one such event in our life unless we live to be about 126 years old.

For many, this series of shakeups begins as early as age 39 and can continue as long as age 49.  But the biggest ones are “about” the age you are now, give or take a year or two.  We might add, also, (4) transiting Neptune squares natal Neptune some time during this period, further forcing the release of certain people, places, and things.

A few gifts can come from this.  First of all, recall that we refer to Uranus as more properly called Prometheus.  The one who gave fire to the humans is the one who can give insights to you at age 42.  Coupled with what Saturn is doing, you are being forced to let go of some ideas and goals you had when you were younger.  You did them or not, but now is the time to move past.  Having done that, you can take the insights that remain and build something until you are about age 56 to 58 (when you will receive your second Saturn return).  When you receive this second Saturn return, the last one of your life unless you live past age 84 (when you would have a Uranus return AND a Saturn return; often the end of life for most), you will pare down even further to the most basic things you want in whatever legacy you leave behind.

So, let’s explore your natal chart.  To begin with, you have a kite.  These are fairly rare, and in your case it means that you had a pretty good idea of what you wanted to do with your life and how to do it.  You knew better than most of your friends.  All you had to do was apply yourself to achieve your desire.  Chances are good that you did, and you achieved something worthwhile.  You may have even achieved some degree of fame.  In any case, you are likely happier with the earlier portion of your life than most people you know.

KT Natal Kite Basic

[Click Image to Enlarge]

You have Mars at Midheaven and in the tenth, so I would not be at all surprised to learn that you are an athlete.  (You might even be a famous athlete in disguise.  If not, then you are almost certainly fairly popular in your “circle.”)  If you do not express this energy athletically, then you may tend to be rather combative at times.  (Do you have a temper?)  AND, sometimes you can be accident prone.  You really do have to be careful about “over-doing it.”

We could analyze a series of trines in your chart, but the Kite eclipses them in importance (and includes some of them).  (So, we will omit that.)

You have the ability to influence others, and you have to be rather careful how you use this.  Overall, though, you probably show good judgment most of the time.  However, you do have to be careful not to “go off half-cocked” and launch something prematurely.  That is probably your single largest weakness.  (Leaping into action when maybe you should pause and reflect.  Snap judgments can be very dangerous for you.)

You also have great potential as a writer or voice of some kind (sportscaster?).  Sometimes your ideas, and words, are nothing short of brilliant (as long as you heed the warning to be careful not to spout off too quickly).  This shows in a “T-Square” in your chart:

KT Natal T-Square Basic

[Click Image to Enlarge]

You also have a Rosetta in your chart, and you can seriously polarize people, with some loving you and others detesting you.  (This is particularly true if/when you speak without thinking through what you are saying.)

This Rosetta also has a bit of a darker side.  With Ceres (Food), Pallas (thinking), and Pluto (control dramas) involved, you are at risk for developing an eating disorder.  This is something you would tend to be rather secretive (Pluto) about, and few would guess the problem.  But, if you do have one and it is not addressed, it could be your undoing.  You will have trouble progressing much beyond 42 without dealing with that.  (I am not saying you will “die” in the ordinary, mundane sense.  But, I am saying that you will be very “stuck” until you address these issues contained in the Rosetta.)

(If the issue is not food, then it could be some kind of financial feast/famine cycle.)

You have a number of 5th harmonic aspects, and that means you are likely rather bright.  You may even write poetry or be musically inclined.

Your 7th harmonic aspects tell me that you are wrestling with tradition.  For example, if you were a yoga teacher, you would have developed a number of ideas about how to do things BETTER than what you have been taught.  If that is true, then you genuinely struggle with the question of whether you should continue to teach in the tradition you have been taught, or to develop and emerge something new and better.  (Astrology does not always give clear cut answers.  But, in your case, it does to this question.  You MUST develop the “something new and better” or you will feel a relentless pang of regret.)

Hope that answers whatever questions you may have.  And, happy birthday!

One last tidbit, Mercury makes a Retrograde Station on or near your solar return (birthday) this year.  Other than mentioning that this year may find you focusing on finishing (or resurrecting) unfinished projects, I will refrain from interpreting that.  BUT, you might find this article to be interesting!

Grand Cross of January 7th and Edward Snowden

We are entering an “interesting” (and dangerous) period.  What will come is presaged by the Grand Cross of January 7th:

As you can see, the main players are Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto.  The Uranus / Pluto square series has been discussed elsewhere on this site and on other sites.  We point out that adding Mars / Jupiter to the mix is a particularly powerful activation.  I tend to think of the Uranus / Pluto combination as a bit like a spark looking for a fuel / air mixture to make something go “boom.”  Mars / Jupiter tends to be a fuel / air mixture.

When this is in the form of a spark plug igniting gasoline in the cylinder of an automobile (or other vehicle), then the combination is useful.  But when it is a spark in a coal mine that makes coal dust go boom, this is very bad.

Here is the chart again (in a different form):

Here is the U.S. Map:

US Map Grand Cross 1-6-2014 11-58-56 PMAlso, this pattern may mark an important turning point in the ongoing story of the NSA and Edward Snowden.  Using the data from this version of Edward Snowden’s chart, namely the June 21, 1983 / 0442 EDT / Elizabeth City NC data, yields a chart that shows (1) a Scorpio Moon applying (loosely) to an opposition to Algol, (2) Mars Conjunct North Node in first house, and (3) Sun conjunct Betelgeuse.

His 8th house (house of spies, intelligence agencies, and assassinations) is intercepted, and the ruler of the 8th (Saturn) is conjunct Pluto (planet of spies, intelligence agencies, and assassinations) in the 5th house (of speculation, luck, and gambling).

Here is his chart using the “Horary” page from Solar Fire 8:

A turning point is coming for him soon (this month, January).  Sadly, chances for confinement look pretty strong for him.

But confinement will escalate his stature as a folk hero.  (The authorities will make a terrible mistake if they succeed in doing that.  Public perception will be a bit like looking at Darth Vader attempting to strike down Obi-Wan Kenobi when the supposedly feeble old man gently states “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”)

Do not be surprised to hear some compare him to Nelson Mandela should Snowden be imprisoned.

If the government REALLY wants to punish him, they should assist him in writing a NY Times bestseller and going on a really LONG book tour.  (Rumor has it that those book tours can be rather strenuous. 🙂  )

Ariel Castro found hanging

Here is the chart for Ariel Castro found hanging.  The Pluto / MC alignment makes a strong statement:

Exactly what this chart means is difficult to tell.  However, independent of the chart, his death so soon seems too merciful to him.  The details of his hanging have not been made public.  If this was a suicide, then how did such a high profile prisoner achieve that?

If this was a murder, one that likely will never be investigated in a meaningful way or prosecuted, then the intruder likely entered the cell at 9:06 PM +/- 1 minute (when Uranus, surprises, rose).  Uranus enters the 12th and Neptune aligns on the 12th house cusp a minute later.  The intruder used deception, perhaps someone pretending to be checking on the “well being” of Castro.  Another two minutes later, and Neptune enters the 11th, placing Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception by house.  The deception, and element of surprise, deepens.

By 9:10 PM, the struggle had began but did not last long.  Only a few minutes without oxygen were needed for the deed to be mostly complete, with him “found” by “about 9:20.”  (Probably between 9:18 PM and 9:19 PM, when Pluto was at Midheaven).

Neptune conjoins Midheaven at 10:48 PM, with Pluto entering the 8th (House of Death) a few minutes before that.  He was “prounounced” at 10:52 PM.

This is all speculation, of course.  And, it is very sinister on many levels.  His death means that we have been cheated of the justice that would have come from him being incarcerated for a very, very long time.

But, maybe he really did commit suicide.
