Chart Division

by Alison Price

Chart Division Overview

Horoscopes developed with the early Greeks and Babylonians. These early astrologers made a conformation that all charts are represented in a certain way.

It is as though you are standing facing south with the east to your left and the west to your right. At this point, the north is below your feet.

The compass points, when placed on a birth chart, fall in unexpected places. Note the east is on the left, the west in on the right, the north is at the bottom, and the south is at the top.

Is this news to you? Well, that is where the word NEWS comes from North, East, West, and South. However, on a birth chart, the compass points are in different places.

 





The Angles

The four angles are the ascendant (ASC), the descendant (DEC), the Midheaven or Medium Coeli (MC) and the Immum Coeli (IC). There are two main axes in a chart, the ASC/DEC

Ascendant / Descendant axis – (Self / Other)

Ascendant meaning:

The impression you make on others. How others see you. It shows the self and your personality. The façade or mask you wear. It indicates the vehicle you use to get through life. The ascendant fronts for you. Other initially see your ascendant before they get to know you and then they see your Sun.

Descendant meaning:

The descendant gives ideas on how you treat other people and strangers. It shows your relationship with the general public. This point also indicates who you are looking for in a partner. The descendant shows your spouse in sharp focus.

Medium Coeli (MC) / Immum Coeli (IC) – (Public / Private)

MC meaning

The Midheaven is at the top of the chart, and it indicates how the world sees you. The Midheaven suggests your highest achievements possible. Life outside the home and your public persona are shown here. The MC has a lot to say about your career and how you carve a life out for yourself. It is about all the things you do in the public domain. It shows your public face as opposed to your private face.

IC meaning

The IC shows the foundations of your life and from where you are coming. It is your private life. It suggests your family dynamics and the inside of your home. It can indicate the situation in your twilight years.

Quadrants

by Alison Price

Quadrants

There are four quadrants; the first, second, third, and fourth quadrants. They are numbered starting from below the ascendant and in an anti-clockwise direction.

Quadrants are formed by the ascendant/descendant axis and the MC/IC axes which cut the chart into four.

The quadrants are not usually equal in length when measured in longitude. However, the two quadrants which are opposite to each other are the same size, that is the first and third quadrants and the second and fourth quadrants.

The first quadrant has the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd houses which are found between the ascendant and the IC.

The second quadrant contains the 4th, 5th, and 6th houses which lie within the IC and the descendant.

The third quadrant is made up of the 7th, 8th, and 9th houses between the descendant and the Midheaven.

The fourth quadrant covers the 10th, 11th, and 12th houses contained betwixt the Midheaven and the ascendant.

A quadrant is emphasized when it has two more planets than any other quadrant.

The Lunar Nodes

by Alison Price

The Lunar Nodes

The Luminaries Path Intersection

The Sun’s path is called the plane of the ecliptic. The Moon’s path is angled at close to five degrees to the plane of the ecliptic.

The Moon crosses the plane of the ecliptic twice a month, once traveling north and once going south.

The Moon’s north node is found at the point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic moving north (NN), and the Moon’s south node is located at the point where the Moon crosses the Sun’s path moving south (SN).

 

Eclipses

When the Sun is near the conjunction to the nodes, which is roughly every six months, or the time the Sun takes to move halfway around the zodiac, there is the chance of a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse.





Lunar Nodal Axis

In your chart, the Moon’s nodes are an axis with the north node at one end, and the south node at the other end. Some charts only show the north node and you can determine the South Node’s position as it is always directly opposite the north node.

Mean and True Nodes

The mean node is the average placement of the Moon’s nodes. The Moon’s mean nodes are always retrograde as they precess through the signs in longitude. The Moon’s true nodes can be direct, stationary or retrograde.

Nodal Speed

The Moon’s nodes precess (or move backward) at a rate of approximately 18.6 years through the whole zodiac. At age 19, 38, 56, and 75 when the nodes return to their birth position, you will experience a nodal return.

Nodes in Signs

The nodes spend around eighteen months in each sign.

Planetary Nodes

All the planets (except the Sun) have north and south nodes. For example, Pluto’s nodes are at +/- 20 degrees Cancer and Capricorn. The planetary nodes are not exactly opposite each other in the chart.





The Meaning of the Nodes

The North Node

The north node is also known as the dragon’s head or Caput Draconis. Connections to new people are shown through your north node. Meetings, get-togethers, and rendezvous are likely to happen. The north node is concerned with things that occur at a hub (computer routers, airports). The north node shows your current incarnation in this life. It suggests your karmic objectives. The north node is related to consciousness. The north node indicates your future path and where you can grow and evolve.

The South Node

The south node is also known as the dragon’s tail or Cauda Draconis. The south node suggests connections with people from your past. It indicates the things that you already know. The south node shows your past incarnations – past lives. This point is related to unconsciousness and sub-consciousness. The south node clearly shows your past and your past lives. It is a place where stagnation can take place.

Lunar Nodal Interpretation

The Nodal Complex

The north and south nodes are usually interpreted as an axis.

  • Note the zodiac sign polarity is it active or passive.
  • Note the two houses as a pair.
  • Note any aspects from the Moon to the nodes as they need careful consideration.
  • Note and planets that conjoin a node, and thus opposes the other node, as they are significant.
  • Note any planet that squares to the nodal axis as they will square both nodes, and this needs some consideration.

Personal Eclipse Points

In your natal chart, the nodal positions are referred to as personal eclipse points as they show where the eclipses would have been that year.

Nodal degrees

The zodiac degree of the north and south nodes is known as your nodal degree, and any planet on that degree is vital in the nodal interpretation.

 





Aspects to the Nodes

If a planet aspects one node it usually also aspects the other node, except for some of the trine/sextile combination as the sextile aspect orb is only 4°and the trine is 8° degrees.

Conjunctions and Oppositions

Any planet conjunct a node will influence the nodal axis in a meaningful way. This planet suggests that you are being pulled forward in life (north node conjunction) or by being held back by your past (south node conjunction).

Squares to the Nodal Axis

Planets square will aspect both the north and the south nodes in a square and will in a way stop either future or past dominating the life. This person may not move forward without significant challenges.





The Lunar Nodes in the Signs

Aries – Libra

The north node in Aries fears but should push towards, independence. The south node in Libra falls back to the partner to find balance.

The north node Taurus fears but should push towards, stability. The south node in Scorpio falls back on reliability.

April 2021 Horoscopes

by Alison Price

April 2021 Horoscopes Overview

Mercury

This month, on the 4th, Mercury enters Aries to bring fast thinking, writing and texting and the danger of shooting your mouth off.

New Moon

The New Moon is on the 12th at 22 degrees Aries.

This is the seed moment this month when new ideas and projects can be germinated.

Any ideas you have at this time will develop and mature over the next two weeks.

Venus

On Wednesday the 14th, Venus goes home to Taurus where she is happy and helps us all financially.

There will be a feeling of having enough regardless of your monetary situation.

Mercury

During the 19th, the Messenger of the Gods, Mercury, dashes into the sign of the Bull.

This indicates slower deals and negotiations but those which will be more favourable for all concerned.

Sun

On the same day we enter “Taurus Season” when the solar orb brings light, warmth and life to all things Taurean.

Mars

Later on the 23rd, the red planet, Mars, goes into the sign of Cancer which is not his favorite place to be as he is in fall there.

This is a position where the planet’s energy is likely to be at a low ebb for a while.

Full Moon

The Full Moon in Scorpio on the 27th, suggests themes of unearthing hidden issues especially emotions and family secrets.

Once you see your relatives for what and who they are you can decide whether to accept the situation and move on or if it’s time to reassess your family dynamics.

This is a reality check for people with blood connections to each other.

Pluto

The only planet changing direction in April is Pluto on the 27th when it adjusts from moving forward to creeping backwards.

This is a symbolic turning point as the planet does not actually change direction, but it appears to do so from our perspective.

This energy shift will significantly reduce the energy available for some Scorpios and Capricorns.

 





Aries

Wellbeing

On the 4th, you can expect some clarity in your thinking. You are likely to hear good news as people speak well of you now.

The new Moon on the 12th will be the perfect time to start a new personal project.

Trust your feelings about things and only initiate plans that truly align with your inner self.

If you are planning a makeover, tap into your instincts to help you get it right. Avoid well-meaning friends whose advice can be not quite right for you.

Money

The second half of the month will be better for you financially as Venus brings a positive spin to your money situation.

If you are in to saving and investing put the most you have into your funds. This is the month to overcome that feeling of not having enough.

Avoid overspending on the 20th around the full Moon, as the temptation will be to flash your cash around which you will regret later.

Taurus

Wellbeing

On the 19th the Sun enters your sign. Now is your moment to shine. Step into the limelight and make the most of every moment.

This is not to the time to hide your light under a bushel use your self-confidence to show the  world exactly who you are.

Love

This month’s full Moon on the 20th, falls in your partnership area.

Now you will be able to see your relationship for exactly what it is. It is as though there is no place to hide for you and them.

Take this opportunity to embrace any serious relationship you have already and let it survive on reality and not fantasy. You can do it.

Gemini

Wellbeing

Over the 15th and 16th of April, you can anticipate some mood swings as you appreciate life at its high highs and low lows.

Realize that this is a passing phase and avoid making any decisions when under emotional extremes.

Until the 23rd you will have boundless energy as Mars remains in your personal sector. Make sure to break a sweat as your embrace yoga, jogging or cycling as your favored exercise routines.

Love

The weekend of the 24th/25th is the best tome for a new romance to begin this month.

Steady relationships will benefit around the 1st and 2nd and the 28th and 29th of the month as Luna cast her beauty over your heartstrings.

Cancer

Love

Your romantic life is quite a focus in April. If you are single, the best day for you to go on a date would be the 20th at the full moon.

If you are in a committed relationship, there is a lot of energy bearing down on the basic romantic side of your relationship.

Take the time to enjoy your partner now. As Pluto once again stations retrograde in your area of committed relationships, you may get the feeling that you are revisiting and rehashing old arguments or situations with your partner.

It may also see that things you can’t get past things and you are constantly revisiting old wounds.

Take a deep breath, as you have been here before and your relationship will be strengthened if you can defend the pair of you against the world. This is the time to “stand by your man” (or woman).

Leo

Career

On April 14th the money planet Venus slips into your career sector. This indicates that a woman may benefit you at work and can offer you some guidance. Female colleagues have support for you now.

Then a few days later on the 19th, both Mercury and the Sun join Venus in your career sector. This group of positive and uplifting planets will help to drive your business related issues.

If you are thinking about starting your own business this will be the perfect time to prepare the paperwork, discuss financial details and decide just how you see yourself in the new role of entrepreneur.

Love

The Moon in your romance sector on the 21st and 22nd suggests these are the best two days to become involved in a romance with someone special.

Love

Pay close attention on the 27th in your love life. The deeply passionate planet Pluto will be turning backwards at this time in your romance sector.

If you’re single you may meet somebody who seems too good to be true, so give yourself enough time to realize who this person really is before you make any major commitments.

If you are in a serious relationship already, you could face a couple of hiccoughs between the pair of you in the last week of the month. But do not worry this is just a blip in a natural rhythm of relationships between two people.

Libra

Love

This is the perfect month for what Libras love most of all and that is spending time with their partner.

Scorpio

Wellbeing

You will have a greater clarity in the last week of the month after the full moon on the 20th.

Take this opportunity of having a realistic look at yourself to see who you are. If there are facets of your personality that you are not happy with this will be the perfect moment to make some changes.

Love

The second half of April is the best time for you romantically. Three positive planets will enter your relationship sector to bring good things for you.

If you are single, it is likely that you may start a new relationship with someone special. If you are already in a committed relationship, there is some danger as you are as you find yourself flirting with somebody else unexpectedly.

If you main relationship is solid this will just be a passing titillation, however, if your partnership is weak in anyway, you may be tempted astray. Be on the alert for people who attempt to get between you and your partner now.

Sagittarius

Love

This is the month when your love life could take on a whole new theme. The first three weeks of April will be the best times for your romance make the most of every opportunity to meet new people even in these challenging times.

At the new moon on the 12th anyone that you meet as a romantic partner may become very significant for you.

If you are single, you are likely to encounter somebody who is super interesting that you are keen to go on a date with.

If you are already in a committed relationship, you are likely to find renewed interest in your partner alternatively you may find that you are being tempted with a flirtatious liaison that may not support your long-term committed relationship.

After the 19th there will be a slowdown in love opportunities for you. So, before the 19th make sure you got everybody’s phone number so you can keep in contact.

Capricorn

Love

From mid-month your love life will perk up considerably as three dynamic planets energies this special area of your life.

In astrology the Sun shows what you want. Each Sun sign has specific wants that they naturally strive towards. When we consider how each sign can benefit you as an employer it makes sense to take a look at what each sign wants so you can place each person in the correct role in your company.

Aries

Aries wants to be first. They are keen to lead a team and be the front man and the go-getter. Rams want to make a difference and leave their mark, or two, at work. They can easily drive, encourage and push workers to reach their own potential. They are the natural entrepreneurs of the zodiac. Mars ruled folk love to start projects.

Taurus

Taurus wants to produce things. They are happy for situations to remain the same. Bulls can work on consistent projects with results. They will establish valuable resources for the company and are adroit at managing business finances. Taurus is reliable, will stay put, be at their desk and build productivity.

The Sun ruled will support and mentor younger people as they create projects.

Virgo

Virgo wants to serve. They are the best administrators of the zodiac. Virgins gladly assist on projects that are led by others. They are the best troopers in the office. They will stand behind and support others thus they make ideal assistants. They can analyze things and will give credit where it is due. They may be accused of micromanaging, but they will always help others with daily activities.

Libra

Libra wants to work with others. They straightway need to be social at work. The Scales will be an excellent silent partner for the other pushy signs. They make great mediators and are often found in human resources departments. Libra strives for an equitable work/life balance. They want to find win-win situations and negotiate results.

Scorpio

Scorpio wants to be an angel investor. They are attracted to research in all its forms. Scorpions make the best human resources terminator which is often a role that others do not want. They manipulate situations to be the power behind the throne. They will uncover problems and purge weak people, projects and trappings from the workplace.

Spring 2021 Ingress Chart

by Alison Price

The Spring 2021 solar ingress chart covers one quarter of the year. Let’s have a closer look at this chart’s potentials.

Ingress Charts

Solar ingress charts are typically set on the Zero Aries house system as they can be read anywhere in the world, so the Sun will be on the left in the zero position of Aries the ram, and in this case, you can ignore the houses. Set this chart for your location to have a closer look at the chart’s potentials for your area.

An ingress chart in Aries may show the situation for the next year because it occurs at the absolute start of the zodiac, but they are typically used to illuminate the future of one quarter of the year at a time.





 

In this case, the time period is from when the Sun enters Aries on March 19th/20th to when it again enters another cardinal sign (Cancer) around June 21st/22nd. This provides us with a good portion of time to work with, three months, one quarter of the year or around 90 days. Enough time to launch projects and set affirmations.

It always depends where you are in the world. The spring equinox in the northern hemisphere occurs at the same time as the autumn equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

Balances Overview

In this chart there are strong influence of:

  • The positive polarity indicating there will be positive vibes and upliftment in general.
  • The mutable mode suggests a certain flexibility between people, and you will be inclined to make allowances for others easier than normal.
  • The air element which hints at you thinking a little longer about the ideas behind what is going on rather than rushing into action.

Planetary Overview

On a planetary level, this ingress chart features:

General Focus

The Sun in Aries suggests you will have more drive and be eager to get things done, although there may be some pushing and shoving.

The Sun is very well placed in its sign of exaltation as it can burn at a high temperature and create initiatives for those who are open to them.

The Sun is conjoined Venus in Pisces (her sign of exaltation) indicating that women may benefit more in this quarter.

The Sun sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, attracting the urge for everyone to go deeper and tap into our hidden talents.

Mercury squares Mars to drive energy into expressing yourself, but you could be overbearing and ostracize others through your strong opinions. This works both ways so you could be at the receiving end of some forceful energy so be prepared to stand your ground.

Love

Venus conjoins Neptune to add some misunderstandings in love affairs. If you are single, you need to be crystal clear about whether you love someone or not, or your prince or princess may simply slip through your fingers.

If you are in a meaningful relationship already, you can anticipate that the blending of Venus and Neptune will bring some confusion in matters of love and romance. You are likely to miss subtle cues from your partner that may be important later. They may tell you something important that you ignore only to realize the implications of after Venus has moved away from the close connection it has with Venus in this chart. Pay attention to all messages from your partner that you hear around the equinox as they will set the tone for the next three months in your relationship.

Mood

The Moon conjoined Mars in Gemini suggests quick change reactions. You could go from happy to sad to annoyed in a moment. If you are a naturally demonstrative person, it may be necessary to pause and take a breath before your emotions become whirlwind.

The Moon trine both of the social planets, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, brings the urge to tap into your feelings, both happy and sad, and the urge to experience a rich life.

The Moon squares Neptune which intimates that you are likely to ignore extremes of emotions, and in doing so, you might miss the bigger picture that is unfolding right under your nose.

Money

Venus sextiles Pluto which joins the two money planets in a positive, if not lucrative, way.

There may not be excesses of cash available this quarter, but this moderate aspect connection suggests there will be enough. However, just what is enough will be subjective for each person.

On a global scale, the markets are likely to rally and maintain their strength and buoyancy this quarter.

After the equinox, choose investments that you are already in and add to those rather than branching out into new positions.

Interest rates will likely hold steady if not creep up slightly.

If you are completing your tax returns during this period, send them off at around 8:00am to 10:00am to avoid any unwanted investigations from the tax department.

Question

In which house of your birth chart does this equinox fall?

This is a series of topics on Children’s Astrology.

Many people do not know that a child can have their chart cast as well as well as grown-ups.

That children are able to have their birth chart read is sometimes news to people.

If you think only adults consult an astrologer to interpret their nativity you can think again.

There is a growing number of children who have their chart done every day.

Pluto Transits Through the Houses

by Alison Price

Pluto Transits Through the Houses – for Forecasting Astrologers

Introduction

In this post I’m going to share with you, key energy shifts that you can anticipate when Pluto transits the houses of your chart.

When your start with transits you typically begin from the outer planets inwards towards the Sun.

The first planet that you will study will be Pluto.

Pluto takes a long time to pass through each sign.

It can take years to transit the houses of your chart.

Pluto’s Time in Each Sign

Taking into account that Pluto will retrograde over signs boundaries I am only looking at the first time Pluto enters a new sign in all cases.

This will give an average time for the planet to be in each sign, although yes, it will retrograde at the beginning of the ingress and go back to the previous sign for a while and at the end of a sign it will move into the new signa finally to retrograde back for a while into the old sign.

But all things being equal, that is why I’m taking the first ingress of Pluto into each sign that has occurred relatively recently.



Pluto Through the Signs

Pluto was in Leo from 1939 to 1956 when it first entered Virgo. Pluto took 17 years to cover 30 degrees.

Pluto was in Virgo from 1956 to 1971 when it entered Libra. Pluto was 15 years in Virgo.

Pluto was in Libra from 1971 to 1983 when it entered Scorpio. Pluto was 14 years in Libra.

Pluto was in Scorpio from 1983 to 1995 when it entered Sagittarius. Pluto was 12 years in Scorpio.

Pluto was in Sagittarius from 1995 to 2008 when it went into Capricorn. Pluto was 13 years in Sagittarius.

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will remain there until 2023 when it will go into Aquarius. Pluto will be 15 years in Capricorn.

Perihelion and Aphelion of Pluto

Perihelion is the closest a planet gets to the Sun and for Pluto, perihelion was actually within Neptune’s orbit on September 5th, 1989 at 13 degrees Scorpio.

Pluto’s aphelion when it is the farthest away from the Sun, the last time was over one hundred years ago in 1867 in Taurus.

Pluto was in Taurus from 1852 to 1882 which means that Pluto spent 30 years in Taurus.

Kepler’s Second Law

Kepler’s 2nd law of planetary motion states that, “Planets sweep out equal areas in equal time.”

This means that when a planet is closer to the Sun, at perihelion, it moves faster, as Pluto did through Scorpio. W

hen a planet is further from the Sun, at aphelion, it moves slower as Pluto did when it transited Taurus.

Pluto transited Scorpio in a brief twelve years but took thirty years to transit Taurus.

Having said all that let’s have a look at some key phrases that you can anticipate when Pluto transits the houses of your natal chart.

 

To find which house Pluto is transiting for you, find 25 degrees of Capricorn and decide which house that is for you. It will be different for everyone.

For myself Pluto is transiting my sixth house at the moment (January 2021).

Initial House Ingress

The most important part of transiting Pluto, or any planet for that matter, is the time it first enters a new house.

That event will bring a period of usually one whole year when the changes relating to the new house are the most felt by the person whose chart it is.

By the time Pluto has been in a house for five to ten yeasr you do get used to the energy.

When in a particular house, if Pluto then conjoins a planet in your house it will it trigger more responses in you.

And when transiting Pluto makes general aspects to the planets in your chart, but that is the topic for another time.

Triple Division – Houses

by Alison Price

Triple Division Houses

The twelve houses can be divided into three groups.

This is known as the triple division of the houses.

There are Three Divisions

  • The first division
  • The second division
  • The third division

The first triple division starts below the ascendant. There are four houses in each triple division. Each triple division has one of each of the four natural houses (by sign) of the elements of fire, earth, air, and water

Using the usual planetary count of only the visible planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and thus seven planets in all) count the planets in each triple division to find the strength or weakness.





Triple Division Strength

Triple divisions are strong when they contain five or more planets, or they are weak when they have no tenants.

First triple division – Me

The first division includes the first, second, third and fourth houses.

It is the me division.

Second triple division – We

The second division includes the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth houses.

It is the we division.

Third triple division – They

The third division includes the ninth, tenth eleventh and twelfth houses.

It is the they division.

2020 Mars Retrograde: A Guide – Starzology Guest Writer

This Guest Post is from Haasli.

2020 Mars Retrograde: Guide

Mars retrograde 2020 occurs from Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, November 13. When a planet is said to retrograde, it becomes more powerful and its energies amplify.  It is considered one of the strongest events in astrology. There are certain things that need to be considered about retrograde so that it can be beneficial and all its negative effects could be minimized. Mars considered Hero of the astrological chart, which can give immense opportunities yet its energies should be carried in with caution.

What exactly is Mars Retrograde?

In Astrology, Mars rules life aspects like sex, desire, action, etc in one’s life, and when this retrograde effects, these areas should be taken care of. Fire signs ruled by Mars finds it more difficult to deal with this situation. Aries out of all signs feel a bit more affected in this transit. They fail to hold any momentum over things when this happens. Small fights, low confidence, and low sex drives can frequently make their presence during this time. Also, a person influenced by this retrograde can take regrettable steps.

Mars is considered “masculine” and any steps taken in this period will be filled with maximized masculinity. They will tend to misuse their energies and dominance because of which they will lack happiness and prosperity.

During the Mars Retrograde, there will be a time of sudden outcomes and changes that can affect a person’s life drastically. If the position of Mars is favourable then this period can make them achieve many big things. For instance, growth in property, abundance, and confidence is the beneficial effect of Mars.



How long will it last?

The retrograde usually takes from 8 to 10 weeks. In order to get more specific details as to when the Mars retrograde will affect you most, you need to check and study house retrograde Mars in your own chart during the process. This will make you know things like when you will be frustrated and the most unlikable time to take any decision etc.

Who will be affected?

Mars Retrograde is a grand astrological event, thus, it will impart changes in the life of every zodiac sign. However, out of all, the most affected sign will be Aries and the people with the sun in Aries. If there is retrograde Mars in a person’s birth chart then they may experience problems like anxiety, depression, dealing with self-determination, sexual life, etc.

How can I use this retrograde to my advantage?

Aries will be affected most in this retrograde as they are the first sign of the zodiac. So they need to be more cautious about this period. This period demands enough care from everyone. Self-care is very essential for this retrograde. It can be anything, reading books, attending horse races, or getting a manicure. Self-care is whatever makes you happy. To make the best out of this time, you can also practice certain remedies as stated below:

These remedies will protect you from any unfavourable events due to the Retrograde of Mars.

  • Avoid the use of any weapon and do not buy any weapon during this period.
  • Remove any harmful tool from your house before starting of the retrograde.
  • This period is unfavourable for buying any new vehicle and buy one can bring bad luck.
  • Do not invest in any property or real estate. That can make you lose your invested money.
  • Avoid shifting to a new house during Mars retrograde.
  • Try postponing any operation or surgeries if scheduled during the period.
  • Court cases in the retrograde can have a negative effect on your financial losses.
  • The Mantra of Mars should be chanted religiously daily in the period.
  • Hanuman Chalisa can help the person reduce all negative effects.

The cosmos will always take care of your feelings and you do not have to unnecessarily stress yourself out in this period. These unfavourable events can always be handled with a conscious mind and strong beliefs. The most common problem that one may come across is uncertainty in this period. Your attitude will change from being very confident about things to be sceptical about everything. This period can also bring enormous happiness in your life if your Mars is positioned well. You will feel confident, your sexual health will revive, your relationships will get stronger and you will be able to gain financial profits.

Asteroids

by Alison Price

Asteroids

The asteroids orbit the Sun, and they are solar system bodies. They are smaller than the planets, and their paths lie mainly between Mars and Jupiter.

They are found in what is called “The Asteroid belt” which is a space between the personal planets (Sun to Mars) and the social planets (Jupiter and Saturn).

Bode’s Law states that there will be a planet found in the space between Mars and Jupiter.

The earlier astronomers looked for it, and that is how Ceres the biggest and was the first asteroid to be discovered.

The Big Four Asteroids

The four largest asteroids are Ceres, Juno, Vesta, and Pallas Athene.

The big four asteroids were discovered first because they are so large, and they could be seen with the early telescopes. These are the main asteroids.

In 2006 Ceres, was reclassified as a dwarf planet (just like Pluto) due to its mass.

This special status conferred onto Ceres has brought Ceres into many astrologer’s mainstream practices, and you will often see it in printed charts.

 





The Asteroid Belt

The central asteroid belt lies between Mars and Jupiter and contains millions of varying sized objects some as large as the planet Pluto and some the size of a potato.

There are three areas where asteroids are found.

The main belt is where most of the astrology asteroids lie, and the Greeks and the Trojans which are groups that lie equally before and after on Jupiter’s orbit path at a sextile.

Asteroids and the Feminine

All the asteroids are named after Goddesses. They are mostly female.

Female goddess asteroids balance out the male-dominated planets such as Sun, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron in a chart.

Female Family

The four main asteroids are all named after the females in a family.

In the myth of Jupiter, we see the asteroid names. Ceres was Jupiter’s mother, and Vesta was his sister, Juno was Jupiter’s wife, and Pallas Athene was his daughter.

Asteroid Names

There are hundreds of asteroids, and many of them have names which can be used in chart interpretation.

You may discover that there is an asteroid with your name and if so, it may have a special meaning for you in your chart.

The name an asteroid has reflects its meaning.

Many asteroids were named after Greek and Roman myths, and the asteroid with the same name has the meaning of the myth.

Orbits

Generally, the asteroids take around four to five years to orbit the Sun.

Their paths lie between Mars, which has a two-year orbit, and Jupiter, with its twelve-year orbit, although some asteroid orbits are longer.

Note Chiron is not an asteroid.





The Big Four Asteroids
