Star of David: Major Aspect Pattern

Star of David: Major Aspect Pattern

Star of David

The Star of David is a major aspect pattern formed with six planets.

There are two grand trines and the planets from the one grand trine are sextile to the planets in the other grand trine.

This is a very rare major aspect pattern and sometimes the planets only form five of the star points which results a partial Star of David and not so important.

What to Consider

As the Star of David is made from two grand trines and six sextiles it has much of the meaning of the grand trine.

There are typically only two elements in play, fire and air or earth and water, so there is usually in one polarity either active or passive.

Interpretation of a Star of David

In this pattern the planets are spread about the chart which suggests a variety of interests and talents because of the six sextiles which indicate latent talents for the individual.


Example Chart: Partial Star of David

November 3, 2023 has a partial Star of David.

The planets in this partial Star of David are the Moon trine Mercury and Neptune, and Venus trine Uranus and Pluto.

Four sextiles between Moon and Venus, Moon and Uranus, Uranus and Neptune and Neptune and Pluto.

The Ascendant: Your Face to the World

Your ascendant is the impression you make on others.

It shows how others see you. It projects the “self” and your personality and the façade or mask you wear.

It indicates the vehicle you use to get through life.

The Ascendant fronts for you.

Other people initially see your Ascendant before they get to know you and then they see your Sun.


The second thing you need to learn is your Ascendant sign. This is likely to be different to your Sun sign although it could be the identical. You will only know your Ascendant sign if you cast your chart.

Your Personality

The Ascendant is a symbol of your one-to-one, face-to-face, meet-and-greet personality that you employ to socialize.

It is a vehicle you use to interact with others.



It is your personal interface and is like a cloak you wear to ‘appear’ to others when you walk out of your front door.

Your Ascendant is your opening position and obvious agenda.

Your Ascendant is a collection of expectations you have of the world and your immediate place in it.


First Impressions

Your Ascendant reveals the first impressions you make and receive which start out as early messages about your behavior (are you good or bad, or right or wrong).

How you strive to meet the expectations of others through your actions when you were a child is indicated by your Ascendant.

Your personality is seen in your Ascendant complex, and most importantly its sign and major planetary aspects to its degree.

It is the variable means by which you negotiate your needs with others (as seen by your Moon) and formulate or build something we can identify as character (as seen by your Sun).

Your Ascendant acts as an interface between the Sun or Moon (or other parts of the chart) and the immediate world around you.

Your personality has energy.

You have a particular attitude, humor, engagement and interaction.


Ascendant Energy

The Ascendant energy is quite different from the accumulation of early behaviors (Moon) or the formation of your character (Sun).

Personality is easy to pick up on, quick to read and decipher.

You can usually see it when you first meet someone (Ascendant).

Personality traits have little to do with our true character.

They are what we show to others.



Your appearance, and how you come across and the means you use to get through life.

Astrologically, the Ascendant is often seen as the vehicle by which we reach the Sun’s destination which is your life goal.

The Ascendant is the route to getting your needs (Moon) met in relationships and how you negotiate these personal needs in a one- to-one environment.

The Creator Economy in the Age of Aquarius

The Creator Economy in the Age of Aquarius

The Creator Economy


We are now stepping into the era of the creator economy, where independent and individual creators can thrive.

This unprecedented phenomenon marks a significant departure from historical norms.

The advent of the internet has swung open wide doors for creative individuals to craft and showcase their content, products, and expertise to a vast and diverse audience.

The creator economy refers to a modern economic ecosystem in which individuals, often referred to as “creators,” leverage digital platforms and technologies to produce, distribute, and monetize their own content, products, or services directly to their audience or consumers.

This concept has gained significant prominence due to the rise of the internet, social media, and various online platforms that enable individuals to showcase their talents, expertise, and creativity without the need for traditional intermediaries like publishers, record labels, or studios.

Key Features of the Creator Economy

Content Creation

Creators produce a wide range of content, such as videos, articles, podcasts, music, art, photography, and more.

The content can be educational, entertaining, informative, or inspirational, catering to specific niches and audiences.

Digital Platforms

Creators rely on digital platforms like YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Patreon, Substack, and other websites to share and distribute their content.

These platforms provide a global reach and offer tools for engagement, interaction, and monetization.

Direct Audience Engagement

Creators often build a dedicated and engaged community of followers, fans, or subscribers.

They interact with their audience through comments, messages, live streams, and other forms of direct communication.

Monetization Strategies

Creators monetize their work through various methods, including ad revenue, sponsorships, merchandise sales, subscription models, crowdfunding, and offering premium or exclusive content to their most devoted supporters.

Individual Branding

Creators develop their personal brand, which encompasses their unique style, voice, values, and expertise. This branding helps them stand out and build a loyal fan base.

Flexible Work Environment

The creator economy offers flexibility in terms of work location and hours. Creators can work from anywhere and often set their schedules according to their preferences.

Entrepreneurial Opportunities

The creator economy enables individuals to turn their passions and talents into viable businesses.

It empowers them to become entrepreneurs by building and growing their own brands.

Challenges and Risks

While the creator economy offers opportunities, it also comes with challenges such as maintaining consistent income, dealing with algorithm changes on platforms, and managing online harassment or negative feedback.

Overall, the creator (Leo) economy represents a democratization (Aquarius) of content creation, allowing anyone with talent and dedication to potentially reach a global audience and earn a living from their creative endeavors.

It has transformed the traditional media landscape and reshaped how people consume and engage with content.

The Virgo/Pisces Shift

The Age of Pisces

Over the course of the past two millennia, individuals often played the role of workers within a collective framework, resembling the Virgo archetype.

This paradigm was often at odds with the principles of the church, characterized by the Pisces energy, where themes of sacrifice and redemption held sway under the influence of those who wielded control over the labor force (Virgo).

The dynamic interplay between Virgo and Pisces has now yielded ground to the emerging energies of Leo and Aquarius.

Value Creators

Education Shift

Individuals such as YouTubers, writers, influencers, and creators of educational content are experiencing a surge in prominence.

Learning is no longer confined to traditional institutions like universities or religious establishments; now, you have the opportunity to glean knowledge directly from individuals.

In this era of the creator economy, and particularly within the Age of Aquarius, everyone possesses unique passions that can be skillfully packaged and delivered through the avenue of solo entrepreneurship.


Creative Independence

Leo embodies the essence of the creator, finding its resonance within the realm of the fifth house, known for its profound creativity.

The ascent of creative principles finds its symbolism in Leo, juxtaposed with its counterpart sign, Aquarius.

The present landscape reveals an unprecedented surge in independent enterprises.

The capability to encapsulate one’s skills and unique expertise to establish a business has never been as prevalent as it is now.

The Age of Aquarius

Dawn of the New Age

The Age of Aquarius dawned around the year 2000.

The Age of Aquarius made its initial appearance with the harnessing of electricity, a development around the 1830s closely following the discovery of Uranus on March 13, 1781.


Aquarius is the sign of innovation and the internet, smart phones, computers and all manner of tech gadgets.

People born under the sign of the Water Bearer are often associated with unique and unconventional traits.

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, which adds a touch of innovation, unpredictability and originality to their character.

These people are often known for their independent and forward-thinking nature.

Strongly Aquarius folk thrive on creativity, new ideas, and intellectual pursuits which makes them great problem-solvers and visionaries.

Aquarius Seems Sociable

Being friendly and seemingly sociable are strong characteristics of Aquarians.

They possess a genuine concern for humanity and often engage in humanitarian efforts.

The Uranus ruled ability to connect with people from all walks of life makes them excellent communicators and team players.

Aquarius Personal Style

One of the distinctive attributes of Aquarius is their emphasis on individuality and a desire to stand out from the crowd.

They are unafraid to challenge societal norms and carve their own paths.

This trait can manifest in various ways, from their personal style to their choice of career or hobbies.

Aquarius and Relentless Innovation

Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer, which signifies the flow of knowledge and ideas.

This symbolism underscores their role as forward-thinkers and carriers of innovation.

They have an innate curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, which drives them to explore new concepts and push boundaries.

Aquarius Stimulates Mental Connections

In relationships, Aquarians value mental connections and intellectual stimulation.

They seek partners who can engage in deep conversations and share their passion for learning.

While they might seem emotionally reserved at times, they genuinely care for their loved ones and express their affection in unique and unexpected ways.

As you embrace astrology as a creative and inspirational tool for living your best life, you might find that exploring your Aquarian traits helps you tap into your natural inclinations.

Embracing your independent spirit, nurturing your creative pursuits, and channeling your humanitarian instincts can empower you to navigate life’s journey in a fulfilling way.

Pluto in Aquarius: 2022 – 2043

Pluto entered Aquarius starting in 2022 until 2043. It will tenant the realm of the fixed air sign for approximately two decades.

This era coincides with the emergence of Chat GPT and the remarkable rise of accessible artificial intelligence (AI).

This significant transformation in our approach to various projects is poised to gain momentum over time.

The advent of cyber currencies (Uranus in Taurus) serves as a tangible manifestation of this impetus for innovation, embodying the collective voice of humanity.

Gender Fluidity

A notable facet of the Age of Aquarius is embodied in the concept of gender fluidity.

Opposition Aspect (Leo/Aquarius)

Projection and Freud

The concept of projection is inherent in the dynamic of any pair of opposing signs.

Projection is a defense mechanism that Sigmund Freud first introduced as a way to understand how individuals deal with emotions and thoughts that they find difficult to accept within themselves.

Projection involves attributing one’s own thoughts, feelings, or desires onto someone else.

In essence, it’s a way of displacing internal conflicts or uncomfortable aspects of oneself onto external people or situations.

This can provide temporary relief from dealing with those feelings directly.

For example, imagine someone who is struggling with feelings of jealousy but is unable to acknowledge this emotion within themselves.

They might project these feelings onto a friend, accusing the friend of being jealous of them instead.

In reality, it’s the individual who is experiencing jealousy, but they project it onto another person as a way of avoiding the discomfort.


Projection often occurs unconsciously, meaning that you might not even be aware that they are projecting your own emotions onto others.

It’s a defense mechanism that helps protect the ego from distressing or conflicting thoughts and emotions.

Projection and Jung

This concept has been widely studied and discussed in psychology. Carl Jung, a prominent Swiss psychiatrist, also explored projection as a way to understand the interactions between the conscious and unconscious mind.

He believed that projection could reveal hidden aspects of the individual’s psyche, offering insight into unresolved inner conflicts.

Projection and Personal Growth

Understanding projection can be beneficial for personal growth and self-awareness.

By recognizing when you might be projecting your own feelings onto others, you can gain insight into your own emotions and thoughts.

It allows you to take a step back, reflect on your reactions, and consider whether your perceptions are influenced by your own internal struggles.

Explore the Projection Concept

In your creative and inspirational approach to life, the concept of projection can serve as a valuable tool.

By exploring this principle, you can gain a deeper understanding of your own motivations, desires, and fears.

This self-awareness can guide you in making more conscious choices and fostering healthier relationships.

It’s important to remember that projection is a natural part of human psychology, and everyone engages in it to some extent.

The key is to develop the ability to recognize when it’s happening and to use that awareness as an opportunity for introspection and personal growth.

As you integrate this understanding into your journey of self-discovery, you’ll likely find that it adds another layer of depth to your creative endeavors and your pursuit of living your best life.

Each sign contains elements desired by its opposite counterpart.

Now, let’s direct our attention to the two dynamic fixed signs of Leo and Aquarius.

Leo and Aquarius

Wanting What You Don’t Have

The essence of opposites is beautifully captured through the interplay of contrasting themes.

In a harmonious dance, Leo and Aquarius have the potential to enhance each other’s completeness.

Leo stands to gain by embracing humility and recognizing the intrinsic worth of humanity.

Aquarius has an opportunity to nurture increased courage and delve into the depths of the heart.

Opposites Attract

The concept of opposites attracting and creating wholeness is a fascinating phenomenon found not only in nature but also in human relationships and various aspects of life.

Much like the interplay between night and day, the union of opposites can bring balance, richness, and a sense of completeness.

Day and Night

The cycle of day and night is a perfect example of how opposites complement each other to form a harmonious whole.

Day represents light, warmth, and activity, while night embodies darkness, coolness, and rest.

Yet, these apparent contradictions work together seamlessly, each contributing its unique attributes to the overall rhythm of life.

The transition from day to night and back again symbolizes a natural ebb and flow, a dynamic equilibrium that sustains the world.

Active and Passive

In human relationships, the attraction between opposites often stems from the idea that individuals with contrasting qualities can bring out the best in each other.

For instance, a person who is outgoing and extroverted may be drawn to someone who is introverted and contemplative.

Their differences create a complementary dynamic where one partner encourages the other to step outside their comfort zone, fostering personal growth and expanded horizons.


In a similar vein, the union of different strengths and perspectives can lead to more well-rounded solutions in problem-solving and creative endeavors.

When people with diverse skills collaborate, they often contribute unique viewpoints that enhance the overall quality and effectiveness of the outcome.

Light and Dark

Opposites also play a crucial role in personal development and self-discovery.

Embracing contrasting aspects of oneself, such as strengths and weaknesses, can lead to a deeper understanding of one’s identity.

Just as the night allows for introspection and rejuvenation, acknowledging our “dark” or less visible traits can lead to a more authentic and integrated sense of self.

However, it’s essential to note that the harmony between opposites doesn’t mean a complete erasure of differences.

Rather, it involves a respectful coexistence where each element retains its identity while contributing to a larger, harmonious whole.

Creative Inspiration

In relationships, for example, maintaining individuality while appreciating and valuing differences is key to a healthy and thriving partnership.

As you explore the idea of opposites attracting and creating wholeness, consider how this concept can enrich your creative and inspirational journey.

Just as day and night work together to sustain the natural world, your unique blend of qualities and experiences contributes to the vibrant tapestry of your life.

Embracing the interplay of opposites within yourself and your interactions with others can lead to a deeper sense of fulfillment and a more holistic approach to living your best life.

Points to Ponder

The Potency of Leo and Aquarius

Could individuals possessing a potent blend of Leo and Aquarius qualities excel in mastering the intricacies of the creator economy within our rapidly evolving digital era?

The prospect seems plausible, even quite probable.

However, if your aspiration as a creator leans toward becoming an influencer, it’s advisable to tap into your Leo attributes.

Of course, numerous astrological factors must be taken into account.

For those of you whose birth charts prominently feature the dynamic duo of Leo and Aquarius, whether through influential house placements such as the first or tenth, or through planetary presence in these signs, you stand a greater chance of thriving as a creator during this Leo/Aquarius era compared to many others.

Mabon Traditional Gatherings

Mabon, also known as the autumn equinox, is a time of balance between day and night, marking the transition from the warmer days of summer to the cooler days of fall. It's a significant point on the Wheel of the Year and is often celebrated by various pagan and neopagan traditions. Traditional gatherings during Mabon focus on themes of gratitude, reflection, and the harvest season.

Here's a glimpse into Mabon traditional gatherings:

  • Mabon is a time to celebrate the second harvest of the year. Traditional gatherings often feature feasts that highlight the bounty of the season. Participants may share dishes made from the abundance of fruits, vegetables, and grains harvested during the fall.

  • Rituals during Mabon often focus on balance and gratitude. Participants may create altars adorned with symbols of the season, such as colorful leaves, gourds, and apples. Candles may be lit to represent the balance between light and darkness.

  • Apples are a quintessential fruit of the fall season. Traditional gatherings may include apple picking excursions to orchards, where participants can gather apples for use in rituals, crafts, and delicious treats.

Mabon Sacred Spaces

Creating a sacred space for Mabon, also known as the autumn equinox, allows you to connect with the energies of the season and engage in meaningful rituals and reflections.

A Mabon sacred space is a place where you can honor the balance between light and darkness, express gratitude for the harvest, and embrace the changing energies of fall.

Here's how you can set up a Mabon sacred space:

  • Choose a quiet and peaceful location where you can set up your sacred space. This could be indoors or outdoors, depending on your preferences and the weather.

  • Create an altar as the centerpiece of your sacred space. Use a table, shelf, or any flat surface to arrange your altar items. Cover it with a cloth in fall colors like orange, deep red, or brown.

  • Decorate your altar with items that represent the themes of Mabon. This can include colorful leaves, acorns, pinecones, pumpkins, gourds, apples, and autumn flowers like marigolds and chrysanthemums.

  • Place candles on your altar to symbolize the balance between light and darkness. You can use two candles—one white or yellow to represent the sun and one black or dark blue to represent the night.

  • Incorporate crystals that resonate with the energies of fall and balance, such as citrine, carnelian, amethyst, and clear quartz. Arrange them on your altar or use them as decorations.

  • Burn incense or use essential oils with fall scents like cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. The aroma can help you create a sensory connection to the season.

  • Add seasonal fruits like apples, pears, and grapes to your altar. You can also include grains like wheat, corn, or barley as offerings to represent the harvest.

  • If you have specific tools you use in rituals, such as a cauldron, athame (ritual knife), or wand, place them on your altar as well.

  • If you work with specific deities, ancestors, or spirit guides, you can include representations or images of them on your altar.

  • Place a small piece of paper or parchment on your altar where you can write down your intentions for the season. This could include things you're grateful for, what you're releasing, or what you're inviting into your life.

  • Create a comfortable space near your altar where you can sit and meditate. Use this space for reflection, gratitude practices, and setting intentions for the coming season.

  • As a way of expressing gratitude, you can offer some of the fruits, nuts, or grains from your altar to the Earth, either by placing them outside or by incorporating them into your fall cooking.


By setting up a Mabon sacred space, you create a dedicated area where you can honor the energies of the autumn equinox, reflect on the harvest season, and engage in rituals that align with your spiritual practices.

This space serves as a visual representation of your connection to the changing rhythms of nature and the spiritual significance of Mabon.



Mabon Poem: Harvest's Balance

Here's a poem I wrote that captures the spirit of Mabon, the autumn equinox, and its themes of balance, gratitude, and the changing of the seasons:

Harvest's Balance


As summer's warmth begins to wane,

The equinox arrives again,

A moment's pause in time and space,

When light and dark find their embrace.


The scales of nature gently sway,

As night and day hold equal sway,

A harmony of sun and moon,

In Mabon's gentle, whispered tune.


The leaves, ablaze in colors bright,

Bid summer's fond farewell tonight,

And in their fall, a sacred dance,

Of letting go with elegance.


The fruits of labor, rich and sweet,

Now gathered in for all to eat,

A feast of gratitude we share,

For earth's provision, tender care.


With every bite, a whispered prayer,

For cycles, gifts beyond compare,

The turning wheel, a constant guide,

As seasons shift and worlds collide.


In this moment of perfect blend,

We find the balance, time to spend,

To honor Earth's abundant store,

And give thanks for the evermore.


As autumn's cloak wraps earth in gold,

The stories of the year are told,

In Mabon's light, we find our way,

A dance of night and equal day.


This poem reflects the themes of balance, gratitude, and the harvest season that Mabon embodies.

It can be recited during rituals, gatherings, or moments of reflection to honor the energy of the autumn equinox.


Mabon Folk Dance

If you're looking for a folk dance to embrace the spirit of Mabon and connect with nature's rhythms, the "Harvest Reel" might be a perfect choice.

The Harvest Reel

The Harvest Reel is a lively and joyful folk dance that embodies the essence of the season.

It can be performed outdoors, surrounded by the beauty of nature, or even indoors to bring the spirit of the outdoors in.

This dance is all about celebrating the abundance of the harvest and the changing of the seasons.

To perform the Harvest Reel, you can follow these simple steps:

  • Gathering in a Circle: Form a circle with friends and fellow dancers. Imagine you're creating a circle that represents the cyclical nature of the seasons.


  • Harvesting Movements: Begin by swaying gently from side to side, mimicking the movement of stalks swaying in the breeze. Imagine you're gathering the ripe fruits and grains from the fields.


  • Sun and Moon Gestures: As you dance, incorporate movements that symbolize the sun and the moon. Lift your arms high above your head to represent the sun's energy, and then lower them to your sides to symbolize the gentle light of the moon.


  • Partner Swaps: If you're dancing in a group, consider a part of the dance where partners swap. This reflects the changing partnerships in nature as different plants and animals interact during the seasons.


  • Harvest Basket: Hold your hands together in front of you as if holding a basket. With each step, imagine adding a piece of harvest bounty to your basket.


  • Seasonal Changes: As the dance progresses, introduce changes in your movements to reflect the transition from the warm days of summer to the cooler embrace of autumn. You can incorporate skipping, hopping, and gentle spinning to embody the changing weather.


  • Crescent and Full Moon Steps: Create steps that mimic the shape of the crescent moon and the full moon. These steps can add a touch of whimsy and symbolism to your dance.


  • Celebratory Claps: Towards the end of the dance, incorporate celebratory claps and cheers to represent the joy of a successful harvest and the gratitude for nature's gifts.


The Dance Experience

Remember, the Harvest Reel isn't about perfect choreography.

It's about embracing the energy of the season, connecting with your fellow dancers, and expressing your gratitude for the bounties of the earth.

Feel free to add your own twists and movements inspired by the natural world around you.

By dancing the Harvest Reel, you'll be living in tune with the solar cycles, celebrating the Wheel of the Year, and embodying the essence of Mabon.

Whether you're dancing in a meadow, a park, or your own living room, this dance will help you connect with nature, celebrate the harvest, and live your best life in harmony with the changing seasons.

The Astrology of Good Omens

The Astrology of Good Omens

The Story

This is an old story of good and evil.

The opening scene is in the Garden of Eden where we meet the angel of the Eastern Gate, Aziraphale who expels Adam and Eve just after they taste the fruit.

Aziraphale is joined by Crowley, a demon.

The son of Satan is born to be brought up on Earth by a normal family when he is switched out, just after birth for another baby at St Beryl’s Maternity Home.

By the time he reaches the age of eleven he will start the Apocalypse as mentioned in the book of Revelations.

The Nice and Inspiring Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch are woven in and guide the characters to discover the time and place for the start of proceedings.

The four riders of the apocalypse represented as Hell’s Angels are summoned and descend on Lower Tadfield in Oxfordshire, England to start the end of days.


The Creation Chart

Chart Data Source

This creation chart is cast from the information from Aziraphale in Good Omens.

The place is from the suspected place of the Garden of Eden near Jerusalem in Israel.

I use the base chart with reference to Nick Campion’s “Book of World Horoscopes.”

This chart data is close, although probably not perfect, but that does not mean we can’t use the chart.

Chart Data

Chart Features

This chart features two Grand Trines and multiple trines in air.

The Sun is in Libra and the book says the Earth is Libra.

Note as the time is unknown, you ignore the Ascendant, Midheaven and houses.

The planets in the signs and the aspects are correct.

The Moon is close to a sign cusp, so it could be either Sagittarius or more possibly Capricorn.

Chart Features

A rolling stellium (not a true stellium) with three planets in Leo – Pluto, Saturn and Mars.

The Sun is conjoined Mercury in Taurus.

Mercury is semi-square Venus and both are in mutual reception.

The two spirits on Earth are representatives of heaven and hell.

They first met in the garden and have grown to like living amongst the humans.

Aziraphale: Pisces

The angel of the Eastern gate is a Pisces.

He is intuitive and even when discorporated can be an effective angel.

Aziraphale worries that an angel can sometimes do wrong like when he gives his flaming sword to Adam and Eve for protection as they are banished from the Garden for eating the fruit.

He runs an old bookshop in London.

Aziraphale asserts the Earth is a Libra and was born at 9:00 am (which is only fifteen minutes out) on October 21st, in the year 4004BC.

Sirius is the dog star and this fixed star rises in Egypt at the time of the inundation of the Nile and portends changes to come.


The Humans

The humans weave the story and some are swept up in the drama from the past and the potential in the future.


Agnes Nutter, Witch: Sagittarius

Agnes wrote the “The Nice and Interesting Prophecies” in a huge book that, although now out of print, there is a copy with her great, great, great, great, great granddaughter Anathema.

Agnes is the last witch to be burned in England and was found by the Witch Finder General who was an ancestor of Newton Pulsifer.

She unexpectedly accepts to host the discorporated spirit of Aziraphale.

She helps him.



The Nuns of St Beryl’s – Gemini

St Beryl’s Maternity Home is the place where the son of Satan is taken by Crowley to be brought up in the care of an American family.

St Beryl’s is of the chattering order of Krakow and the sisters are:

  • Sister Mary Loquacious
  • Sister Grace Voluble
  • Sister Patricia Prattle

In Astrology sisters are signified by Vesta the asteroid named after the sister of Jupiter.


The Four Riders

The four Hell’s Angels ride in on their hogs and are drawn to the events when tipped off by the International Express delivery guy.


Red: War – Aries

Carmine Zuderbeger is a sexy female warrior (Eris perhaps?) and has Aziraphale’s sword strapped to her blood red bike.


Black: Death – Capricorn

Black wears a motorbike helmet and plays the arcade machine winning every answer and bringing in new categories of; war, pestilence, famine and death.


White: Pollution – Cancer

White is found on the banks of the river where he has made the pollution make the fish float to the top and the swans sink to the bottom. He loves pollution.


Pale: Famine – Libra

Pale is well, pale and upsets the balance in the food chain.


Other Parts

The International Express delivery guy: Gemini

The management training team plays paintball in the grounds of old St Beryl’s.

They meet up with Aziraphale and Crowley.

A Wonderful Idea for Gift-Giving

Rather than giving your family and friends more unnecessary material possessions, why not consider gifting them an astrological reading?

Gifts that involve experiences like art classes, manicures, trips to the cinema, or weekends away can be truly special.

The essence lies in the fact that I don’t necessarily need another kitchen appliance or a knitted jacket.

What truly makes a gift meaningful is something that lingers in the mind, making one reflect and cherish it for days and weeks to come.

An astrological reading can evoke the same effect.


The Gift of Continuity

An astrology reading truly becomes the gift that keeps on giving.

Offering a Happy Birthday Reading to someone in your life who is interested in astrology, spirituality, or personal growth can be a wonderful gesture.

This gift will undoubtedly be cherished, and the recipient will appreciate you for providing them with such a thoughtful and profound experience.

Chart Interpretation Guide

Chart Interpretation Guide

Chart Interpretation Guide

As a private astrology teacher, I often receive inquiries about where to begin with chart interpretations and what holds more significance in a chart reading.

I am delighted to present my Chart Interpretation Guide, which aims to assist you in initiating and refining your consultations.

When it comes to chart interpretation styles, there is no universal approach that suits everyone.

I strongly encourage you to continue utilizing your own knowledge, insights, and intuition in your readings.

However, if you ever find yourself in need of some guidance, this guide is here for you.

New Chart Interpretation Guide

There are numerous approaches to conducting a chart reading, but the method I prefer involves initially extracting the crucial elements and saving the remaining details for later exploration.

To put it simply, it’s like sticking to the main roads and leaving the less prominent ones for another time.

Your clients are likely to be aware of prominent features in their charts, such as the chart ruler or challenging aspects to their Sun. It is sensible to address these obvious components first.

I’m not suggesting disregarding all the other features that appear in a chart, but rather prioritizing the information displayed in each chart.

This way, you can organize it into manageable portions and present it in a manner that your clients can easily comprehend.

Ideally, it would be best to schedule three to five sessions over a six-month period for each client.

This allows for a comprehensive interpretation of their natal chart potential in various areas, including general life, romance, career, and health.

Margin and Body

Section 1 of the Guide provides a comprehensive explanation of the Margin and Body method, which is an effective technique for extracting initial details from a chart.

To assist you in prioritizing information, the individual Parts 1 to 6 are listed in order of importance.

Feel free to write by hand and make use of the astrological glyphs as you delve into the chart interpretation process.

Report Headings Guide

Section 2 of the guide offers valuable starting points to help you piece together the various elements of a chart reading.

I have carefully organized the different features in a chart to facilitate your interpretation process.

It’s completely understandable if you’re not familiar with all the details mentioned in the guide.

Don’t worry! Utilize this resource to the best of your current abilities, and rest assured that as you continue your astrology journey, you will gradually uncover and comprehend the more advanced components.

Get Your Chart Interpretation Guide

I am delighted to offer you a complimentary copy of my latest Chart Interpretation Guide.

If you are already on my mailing list you will have received the complimentary guide.

You can access the PDF Guide by subscribing below after which shortly you will receive an email with the PDF included.

BadAss Goddesses

In this episode, Alison chats with Arwynne O’Neill a research astrologer in Vancouver. Arwynne has created some beautiful and evocative artworks related to the goddesses and the zodiac signs. See her contact details at the end.



If you wish to support Arwynne’s art practice and purchase one of these original artworks, please click on the image and it will take you to Arwynne’s online shop. Thank you in advance. We appreciate you.


Aries: BadAss Goddesses Amazons

The Amazons were a tribe of warrior women from Greek mythology, who lived in what is now Ukraine. Most famous among them were queen Penthesilea, who fought in the Trojan War, and her sister Hippolyta. No men were allowed among the Amazons, so they maintained their numbers through annual visits to a nearby tribe of male warriors. Baby girls resulting from these encounters were raised as fierce warriors, while male babies were either returned to the village of their fathers or left to die in the elements. (Alternatively, the Valkyeries)

Taurus: BadAss Goddess Watamaraka

Lightning and thunder herald the arrival of Watamaraka, the Zulu goddess of evil, at the temple where she rules over the Land of Darkness. She is the mother of all the world’s demons, and her mate, Burumatara, is their father—a half-bull, half-crocodile creature the size of an elephant.

Gemini: BadAss Goddesses Ta’xet and Tia

Ta’xet and Tia: The Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands in Western Canada have a death god duality called Ta’xet and Tia who guard the portal between life and death, through which all humans must pass to reach the realm of the afterlife. Ta’xet is the god of violent death, and Tia is the god of peaceful passing.

Cancer: BadAss Goddess Gaia

Gaia is the personification of the Earth, and one of the first Greek deities born from the void of Chaos. She is the mother of the Titans, who preceded the gods of Mount Olympus. Her offspring, Cronus and Rhea, were the parents of Zeus, who eventually overthrew the Titans and became the king of the gods.

Leo: BadAss Goddess Bastet

Bastet is the Egyptian cat goddess, originally worshiped in the form of a lion. Her status grew as cats were domesticated and her cult spread to Italy, where her symbols and statuary have been found in the ruins of ancient Rome and Pompeii.

Virgo: BadAss Goddess Artemis

Artemis is the Greek goddess of the hunt, twin of Apollo and daughter of Zeus and Leto. Artemis rules the moon and childbirth, motherhood and virginity, wild animals and hunters. She took an oath of chastity and defended it with deadly force when necessary. A hunter who happened upon her bathing in the river was turned into a deer for his transgression. She was just as fierce at defending her virginal followers and meting out swift punishment to those who threatened them.

Libra: BadAss Goddess Venus

Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty, and the ruler of Libra. She was born of the ocean foam rising from the severed testicles of the god Uranus. She is the epitome of feminine charm, gorgeous and irresistible, but also vain and faithless, prone to jealous rage and capricious violence. By the numbers, her legacy of lovers is dwarfed by the victims left in her… ahem, wake. The beautiful boy who didn’t return her affection, turned into a crab. An entire island’s women, struck blind. Love hurts.

Scorpio: BadAss Goddess Serket

Serket is the ancient Egyptian goddess of magic and medicine, and the ruler of poisonous creatures. She specialized in curing the venomous stings of spiders, snakes, and especially scorpions, which are her totem. She embodies both the venom and its antidote. Serket was the chosen patroness of many pharaohs, and their protector in the afterlife.


Follow along with our conversation about Arwynne’s artworks on YouTube.

Sagittarius: BadAss Goddess Ayao

Ayao is a Yoruba goddess in the Santería pantheon and an Orisha, or spirit of the air. She resides in the forest and in the eye of the tornado. She is a fierce warrior who wields many weapons, including a crossbow, a serpent, a quill and nine stones. (Alternatively, the Amazons)

Capricorn: BadAss Goddess Estanatlehi

Estanatlehi is the Navaho and Apache goddess of time, creation, transformation and immortality known as the Changing Woman. As an old woman she walks toward the east until she sees her younger self coming towards her, then she merges with herself, becoming young again. She progresses through an endless stream of lives, always changing and renewing but never dying. (Alternatively, Medusa)

Aquarius: Goddess Sedna

Sedna is the vengeful Inuit goddess of the sea, worshiped by hunters and fishermen who depend on her for their livelihood. As a beautiful maiden, Sedna rejected many suitors until a deceitful god tricked her into marriage. Her father sailed to her rescue, but was so terrified by her husband’s wrath that he threw Sedna overboard and cut off her fingers to prevent her from climbing back into the boat. She sank to the bottom where she was adopted as the protector of all the ocean’s creatures.

Pisces: BadAss Goddess Meng-Po

Meng-Po, Buddhist Lady Meng (whose name means “Dream”) is the goddess who guards the door of the Ninth Chinese Hell, where she dishes out a mystic brew for the souls of the dead to drink. Her potion makes them lose all memories of their previous lives, which ensures that everyone is reborn with a clean slate. The only thing a soul carries from one incarnation to the next is its Karma, kind of like spiritual metadata.

Tropic of Capricorn Alison’s Story


I have cherished memories of residing near the Tropic of Capricorn in South Africa during the vibrant nineties. Our home was nestled in the town of Phalaborwa, a place that owed its existence to the presence of a copper mine. Positioned just shy of the Tropic of Capricorn, Phalaborwa sat proudly at 23°55’S latitude, with the actual Tropic of Capricorn located just a short distance away at

Tropic of Capricorn

One particular memory that brings a smile to my face is a photograph capturing myself and my four little darlings standing precisely on the line where the Tropic of Capricorn encircles the Earth. It holds a special place in my heart, and I invite you to glimpse this cherished image on the blog post linked in the description below.

Two Summers

Phalaborwa, aptly named “Two summers,” was renowned for its scorching heat. The climate seemed to bypass the traditional seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, and instead embraced an unyielding presence of two relentless summers. The town’s name encapsulated this unique experience, as it symbolized a place where the distinction between seasons was blurred, and the sensation of endless heat pervaded.

Tropic of Capricorn

Being situated near the Tropic of Capricorn had a profound effect on the town’s relationship with the sun. Each year, on or around December 21st, which coincides with mid-winter in the northern hemisphere, Phalaborwa experienced the striking phenomenon of the summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. It was during this time that the sun seemingly paused, suspended directly overhead at the solstice, casting its intense rays upon the land.

Local Spirit

This celestial occurrence held both awe and significance. It marked a moment when the Sun reached its highest point in the sky, casting a luminous glow upon the landscape and illuminating the spirit of the town. The Sun’s powerful presence during the summer solstice served as a reminder of the cyclical nature of time and the intricate dance between celestial bodies and the Earth.


Living in Phalaborwa, near the Tropic of Capricorn, granted a unique vantage point to witness the grandeur of celestial events. It connected us to the cosmic rhythms that govern our world, allowing us to appreciate the wonder and majesty of the sun’s journey through the seasons. These memories of the sun’s radiant embrace during the summer solstice remain etched in my mind, a testament to the remarkable beauty and interconnectedness of our planet’s celestial tapestry.

Tropical Living

Only those who reside within the geographic band between the two tropics have the privilege of witnessing the Sun casting its direct rays overhead. Living within this equatorial region, encompassing approximately 23°43′ degrees north and 23°43′ degrees south of the equator, grants a unique experience of the Sun’s radiant presence. In contrast, for those dwelling above or below this latitude, the Sun’s rays perpetually approach at an oblique angle, never reaching the zenith directly overhead.

Biological Diversity

This fundamental distinction in the angle at which the Sun’s rays reach different latitudes gives rise to notable variations in climate and biodiversity. Tropical regions, characterized by their proximity to the equator and the presence of the two tropics, tend to be consistently hotter and boast exceptional levels of biological diversity. The direct overhead position of the Sun ensures a more intense and concentrated influx of solar energy, resulting in elevated temperatures year-round.

Abundant Sunlight

The perpetual warmth of tropical regions creates a conducive environment for diverse ecosystems to flourish. Lush rainforests, vibrant coral reefs, and a rich array of plant and animal species find their home within these tropical paradises. The abundant sunlight and the accompanying warmth provide the necessary conditions for the proliferation of life, fostering a breathtaking tapestry of biodiversity.

Seasonal Shifts

In contrast, regions situated beyond the tropics experience more pronounced seasonal variations due to the oblique angle at which the Sun’s rays reach the Earth’s surface. These regions, commonly referred to as temperate or polar zones, witness fluctuations in temperature and distinct seasons characterized by spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The reduced intensity of the Sun’s rays at higher latitudes results in cooler climates and different ecological adaptations.


While these temperate and polar regions may not experience the consistent heat of the tropics, they possess their own unique beauty and biological wonders. The seasonal changes bring about stunning transformations in landscapes, showcasing the resilience and adaptability of flora and fauna to thrive in ever-changing conditions.


The positioning of regions between the two tropics grants them the privilege of experiencing the Sun directly overhead, fostering hotter climates and exceptional biodiversity. However, it is important to recognize that each latitude, whether tropical or temperate, possesses its own distinct charm and ecological marvels, adding to the wondrous tapestry of our planet’s diverse ecosystems.


Solstices are recurring events that take place twice a year.

In the Northern Hemisphere, one solstice occurs around June 21st, known as the summer solstice, while the other takes place on December 21st, referred to as the winter solstice.

These solstices mark the pivotal moments within the solar year, signifying significant shifts in the sun’s position and the duration of daylight.


Geography Class

Let’s take a nostalgic trip back to your school days, specifically to your geography class. The Earth’s axis is tilted at an angle of around 23.5° degrees relative to the vertical.

This tilting causes the Earth to face one pole and then the other towards the Sun as it orbits around it. This alternation of the poles occurs throughout the year.

In June, during the summer solstice, the North Pole is oriented towards the Sun, while in December, during the winter solstice, the South Pole faces the Sun.

Consequently, June experiences summer in the northern hemisphere, while December marks summer in the southern hemisphere.

Line of the Tropics

At a point 23.5° degrees above and below the equator, the Sun appears directly overhead on the Earth. If you were to draw an imaginary line around the Earth at these points, they would correspond to the tropics.

The Tropic of Capricorn is situated in the Southern Hemisphere, while the Tropic of Cancer lies in the northern hemisphere.

When the Sun reaches these two tropics and changes its direction, it enters the tropical signs of Cancer and Capricorn.

This shift in direction, or turning, holds symbolic significance, representing the cyclical nature of the Earth’s relationship with the Sun and the changing seasons.

Natural Wheel

Aries First

In the natural wheel, the zodiac signs are arranged in a specific order, with Aries positioned on the left in the Ascendant position. Each subsequent sign follows suit, with Taurus in the second house, Gemini in the third house, Cancer in the fourth house, and so on.

In the natural wheel, the Cancer ingress, which marks the Sun’s entry into the sign of Cancer, is typically depicted at the lowest part of a chart. This convention is used for chart display purposes. This moment represents the first cardinal ingress since the beginning of the Zodiac at zero Aries.

As the Sun transitions into Cancer, it symbolically signifies a connection back to the equator.

At this point, the Sun undergoes a turning or shift, carrying symbolic implications for establishing renewed connections or foundations.

Swinging up and down like a pendulum in the rhythm of the seasons and the solar year.

Sun enters Cancer

June 21st

When the Sun enters the zodiac sign of Cancer, it marks a significant turning point known as the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.

This celestial event holds immense symbolic and practical importance.

The Sun’s entry into Cancer occurs around June 21st.

It signifies the peak of summer or winter, respectively, and serves as a pivotal moment in the solar year.

High or Low Point

At this time, the Sun reaches its highest or lowest point in the sky, resulting in the longest or shortest day of the year, and a corresponding shift in the duration of daylight.

Symbolically, the Sun’s entry into Cancer represents a moment of transition and change. It marks the beginning of a new season and holds profound significance for various cultures and traditions worldwide.

The solstice turning point is often associated with themes of rebirth, renewal, balance, and the interplay between light and darkness.

Solstice Celebrations

In many ancient cultures, solstice celebrations were held to honor this celestial event. People gathered at sacred sites, such as Stonehenge, to witness the alignment of the Sun with specific architectural features or celestial markers.

These celebrations often included rituals, ceremonies, feasts, and communal activities aimed at harnessing the energies of the Sun and embracing the transformative power of the solstice.

Practically, the Sun’s entry into Cancer also has practical implications for agriculture and the natural world.

Growing Season

In the Northern Hemisphere, it represents the peak of the growing season, as the Sun’s energy nourishes plants and promotes abundant growth.

Farmers and gardeners observe this turning point to gauge the optimal timing for planting, harvesting, and tending to their crops.


On a deeper level, the Sun’s entry into Cancer invites us to reflect on the cycles of life, the nurturing qualities of the feminine, and our emotional well-being.

Cancer is associated with themes of home, family, intuition, and emotional sensitivity.

This period encourages us to connect with our inner selves, nurture our relationships, and find solace and comfort in the embrace of loved ones.

Overall, the Sun’s entry into Cancer represents a profound solstice turning point that holds both symbolic and practical significance.

It marks a transition in the solar year and heralds the arrival of summer, a season that is often regarded as one of the most delightful times of the year.

This time is characterized by the vibrant growth of crops and the joyful frolicking of lambs in the fields, encapsulating the essence of abundance and vitality.

Favourable Season

For farmers and subsistence farmers, the Sun’s entry into Cancer brings a sense of relief and relaxation.

It signifies a shift towards a more stable and favorable agricultural season.

The diligent efforts that they put into planting and nurturing crops begin to bear fruit, with fields transforming into a tapestry of lush greenery and burgeoning harvests.

This bountiful time allows growers to witness the fruits of their labor and take solace in the knowledge that their hard work is paying off.


The arrival of summer brings a respite from the more demanding tasks associated with earlier stages of agricultural.

It is a period where farmers can take a moment to appreciate the beauty of nature, to witness the flourishing landscapes, and to enjoy the rewards of their toil.

The fields become a source of inspiration and a testament to the cyclical nature of life and the interconnectedness between humans and the land.


Moreover, the start of summer encourages a sense of relaxation and rejuvenation in rural communities.

It provides an opportunity for individuals to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, to embrace outdoor activities, and to connect with the abundance of the season.

It is a time when communities come together to celebrate local traditions, festivals, and gatherings that celebrate the joys of summer.


The Sun’s entry into Cancer marks the beginning of a vibrant and abundant season.

It signals a time when farmers and subsistence farmers can momentarily set aside their worries and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

It is a period of respite, joy, and celebration, where the natural world thrives and beckons all to revel in its beauty.

Tropic of Capricorn

Drawing Back

The Sun’s entry into Capricorn in December symbolically represents the Sun’s drawing back towards the equator, implying a significant shift in the seasonal cycle.

This transition signifies a movement towards balance and equilibrium, as the Sun’s position aligns closer to the celestial equator.

It symbolizes a turning point in the year, where the days begin to lengthen in the Northern Hemisphere and the nights become shorter.

New Cycle

Metaphorically, the Sun’s entry into Capricorn can be seen as a metaphorical pulling back or gathering of energy, as it prepares to embark on a new cycle and journey through the zodiac.

It is a time of reflection, consolidation, and setting intentions for the upcoming year.

The symbolism suggests a return to stability, grounding, and the establishment of solid foundations as the Sun’s energy converges towards the equator.

Monoliths to Celebrate the Solstices


Across different cultures and regions, numerous monuments, artifacts, and structures have been created to honor and celebrate the summer solstice.

These include megalithic sites, temples, stone circles, and observatories, each reflecting the deep reverence for the sun and the solstice in ancient societies.

These monuments and artifacts not only highlight the architectural and engineering prowess of their creators but also serve as powerful symbols of cultural and spiritual significance.

They were often used as gathering places for rituals, ceremonies, and festivities during solstices, including the summer solstice.

Such events would bring communities together to honor the sun’s life-giving energy, express gratitude for the abundance of the season, and partake in spiritual practices associated with this special day.

Solstice Alignment

The creation of these structures and the celebrations surrounding the summer solstice demonstrate the enduring human fascination with the cosmos and our deep connection to nature.

They serve as reminders of our ancient ancestors’ profound understanding of celestial cycles and their ability to integrate them into their daily lives, rituals, and belief systems.

These monuments and artifacts continue to captivate and inspire modern-day visitors, allowing us to glimpse into the rich tapestry of ancient cultures and their enduring legacies.


Wiltshire, England

Places like Stonehenge have been constructed with careful alignment to the summer rising of the Sun on June 21st, the day of the summer solstice. These ancient monuments serve as remarkable testaments to the human fascination with celestial events and their significance in ancient cultures.

Stonehenge, located in England, is perhaps one of the most iconic examples of such a structure. Its alignment with the sunrise during the summer solstice suggests that it was specifically designed to capture the first rays of sunlight on this auspicious day.

The exact intentions and purposes behind Stonehenge’s construction remain a subject of debate and speculation, but it is widely believed that it held immense ceremonial and astronomical significance for the ancient people who built it.

Stonehenge’s Latitude

Stonehenge is situated at a latitude of approximately 51.1789 degrees N. Its precise location places it in the southern part of England, near the city of Salisbury, in the county of Wiltshire.

This latitude ensures that Stonehenge is within the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere, allowing it to experience a range of seasonal changes and align with important astronomical events such as the summer solstice.

The positioning of Stonehenge at this specific latitude further emphasizes its connection to celestial phenomena and the careful consideration given to its construction in relation to the Earth’s orientation and the movement of celestial bodies.

“Sun Tunnels” Art in Utah, USA

Sun Tunnels Sculpture

Located in the Great Basin Desert of Northwest Utah, USA, the awe-inspiring “Sun Tunnels” art installation captures attention.

Crafted by renowned American artist Nancy Holt, this masterpiece offers a captivating experience.

Notably, the installation’s placement coincides with the summer solstice, enhancing the artistic encounter with a mesmerizing celestial alignment.

Crafted between 1973 and 1976, these remarkable tunnels consist of four concrete structures measuring nine feet and three inches in diameter, spanning a length of eighteen feet each.

Sun Tunnels Latitude

Situated at Latitude 41N, two tunnels align along the north-south axis, while the other two align east to west, creating a harmonious arrangement.

The precise alignment of the Concrete Tubes with the summer solstice showcases the intentional integration of celestial events and natural phenomena into the realm of art.

It creates a captivating and interactive experience for visitors who can witness the play of light and shadows as the Sun interacts with the installation during this particular time of the year.

Solstice Alignment

At both the summer and winter solstice, the Sun Tunnels’ arrangement becomes a spectacle, with the Sun positioned precisely in the center of the imposing concrete tubes as it sets on the horizon.

The alignment with the solstices also adds a deeper layer of symbolism to the artwork. The summer solstice represents a turning point in the solar year, symbolizing abundance, vitality, and the peak of the Sun’s power.

By aligning with this significant celestial event, the Sun Tunnels may evoke a sense of connection to the cycles of nature, the passage of time, and the profound impact of celestial bodies on our daily lives.

Artistic Vision

Art installations that incorporate celestial alignments, such as Holt’s Sun Tunnels in Utah, invite contemplation and reflection on the interconnectedness of art, nature and the cosmos.

They highlight the artistic vision and creativity of the artists behind the installation while simultaneously fostering a sense of awe and wonder at the natural rhythms and forces that shape our world.

Visiting such installations during the summer solstice can provide a unique and immersive experience, as viewers witness the merging of art and nature, light and shadow, and the harmonious interaction between human creativity and the cosmic dance of celestial bodies.

As Astrologers


As astrologers, we have the privilege of observing and tracking the solar cycle as it reaches its zenith at the Tropic of Cancer before embarking on its transformative journey back. This cyclical movement holds great significance in our astrological interpretations and allows us to delve into the intricate dance between celestial bodies and human experiences.

Solar Cycle Peaks

The solar cycle’s peak at the Tropic of Cancer marks a pivotal moment in our astrological understanding. It symbolizes the height of the Sun’s influence in the Northern Hemisphere, bringing forth the energy of warmth, illumination, and growth. This is a time when the Sun’s rays shower the Earth with abundance, stirring the seeds of potential and offering opportunities for personal and collective expansion.

Turning Point

As the Sun reaches its highest point at the Tropic of Cancer, it signals a turning point, a shift in its trajectory. This celestial pivot holds deep symbolism, representing a moment of reflection, introspection, and realignment. It is a reminder of the cyclical nature of life and the need for balance and equilibrium.

Ebb and Flow

By closely observing the solar cycle’s journey back from the Tropic of Cancer, we gain valuable insights into the ebb and flow of energies and their impact on human lives. This return journey presents an opportunity for introspection, as the Sun gradually descends, inviting us to explore our inner realms, reassess our goals, and realign our intentions.


As astrologers, we follow this solar cycle with reverence and curiosity, recognizing the profound connection between celestial movements and the unfolding of human experiences. We engage in the study of planetary alignments, transits, and aspects to discern the subtle nuances of this transformative journey and its influence on individual charts and collective dynamics.


Through our astrological practice, we seek to uncover the deeper meanings and patterns woven within the solar cycle. We strive to provide guidance, insights, and support as individuals navigate the turning tides, finding solace and inspiration in the rhythmic dance between the Sun’s radiant energy and our own evolving paths.

Cycle Peaks

In embracing the solar cycle’s peaks at the Tropic of Cancer and its subsequent return, we honor the ever-changing nature of existence and the infinite possibilities for growth and transformation. Our role as astrologers is to illuminate the cosmic tapestry and help others navigate the twists and turns of their personal journeys as they align with the celestial rhythm that guides us all.

Over To You


Here in Vancouver, we are at the 49th parallel which means we are at 49°14’N degrees from the equator.

There is even a brewing company in the city called, “The 49th Parallel Brewing Company” here in the city which crafts a delicious local beer. Or so I’ve heard.

We do experience significant changes in the seasons especially the amount of light from the Sun during summer as opposed to winter.

I realize that this is obvious as the seasons a change, but it was not so noticeable when I lived in Phalaborwa which is at 23°55’S degrees from the equator.

Think About It

I just wanted to discuss the turning points of the solstices as something to think about as we reach the summer solstice here this week.

I believe in living my life in line, and aligned to, the seasonal shifts created by the movement our tilt and the apparent path of the Sun.

I wanted to share that, as I learn more about astrology, it becomes more and more meaningful when I’m reading charts, where the Sun is and whether it is at the extremes of its path, either north or south.


Share with Someone

If you found some value or learned something to make you think about the astrology you are practicing, then please share this post with those who may be interested.

It would mean a lot to me.

The ABCs of Astrology

The ABCs of Astrology

Learn some fun astrology with the ABCs of Astrology whereI go over one specific chart component relating to each letter.

The ABCs of Astrology

The ABCs of Astrology

The ABCs of Astrology

In this particular episode, we’re going to explore the whimsical side of astrology by examining the ABCs of this mystical discipline.

Each letter of the alphabet will feature a chosen astrological component but be aware that not all aspects will be covered.

To illustrate, the letter C could stand for Chart, Cancer, Conjunction, Chiron, or Capricorn, and there are likely numerous other astrological terms that readily come to mind.

Without further ado, let’s begin our journey with the letter A.

A is for Aspects

In astrology, aspects refer to the angular relationships between celestial bodies in a birth chart.

These relationships, determined by the degrees of separation between planets, reflect specific energetic connections and influences.

Aspects reveal the dynamic interplay between various planetary energies, shaping an individual’s personality traits, potentials, and life experiences.

They can indicate harmonious or challenging interactions, highlighting areas of strength, challenges, and opportunities for growth.

Common aspects include conjunctions (when planets are close together), squares (90-degree angles), trines (120-degree angles), and oppositions (180-degree angles).

The nature of the aspect determines the nature of the interaction, influencing the overall astrological interpretation.

B is for Books

If you’re delving into astrology and seeking some insightful reading material, I have a few book recommendations for you.

Consider adding the following three titles to your astrology collection:

  • An Ephemeris” – This book provides essential astronomical data, such as the positions of celestial bodies, which is crucial for accurate astrological calculations and chart interpretations.


  • The Contemporary Astrologer’s Handbook” by Sue Tompkins, this handbook offers a comprehensive guide to modern astrology, covering various techniques, chart interpretation, and practical advice for aspiring astrologers.

  • Planets in Transit” by Robert Hand, this book explores the influence of planetary transits, revealing how the movement of planets in relation to an individual’s birth chart can shape and influence life events and personal growth.

These three books can serve as valuable resources to deepen your understanding of astrology and enhance your astrological practice.

C is for Chart

The centerpiece of any astrology session lies in the chart, a profound depiction of your life and spiritual voyage.

Your individual birth chart acts as a blueprint, unveiling the intricate details of your existence.

Numerous chart variations exist, including:

  • Natal charts: It highlights the positions of celestial bodies at the time of your birth, shedding light on your personality traits, potentials, and life path.
  • Composite charts: These charts combine the birth charts of two individuals to explore the dynamics and potentials of their relationship.
  • Progressed charts: They reflect the evolution of your natal chart over time, offering insights into your personal growth and life transitions.
  • Directed charts: These charts focus on specific periods or themes in your life, providing a more in-depth understanding of their influence and significance.
  • Solar return charts: They are cast for the exact moment when the Sun returns to its natal position each year, providing insights into the upcoming year’s themes and energies.
  • Bi-wheel charts: They feature two charts overlaid, allowing for a comparative analysis of different time periods or individuals.

This list merely scratches the surface, as astrology encompasses a wide array of chart types, each offering unique perspectives and insights into various aspects of life.

D is for Descendant

The descendant, located on the western horizon at the time of your birth, holds significance in your chart.

It symbolizes several facets, including your life partner and the qualities you seek in a companion.

This point highlights the characteristics, values, and attributes you desire in a significant other.

It provides insights into your ideal partner’s traits and helps shape your expectations in relationships.

The descendant plays a crucial role in understanding the dynamics of your partnerships and the type of connection you seek in your journey through life.

E is for Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a table or data set that provides the positions of celestial objects, such as planets, moons, and stars, at specific times.

It contains information on their coordinates, distances, velocities, and other relevant parameters.

Ephemerides play a crucial role in astrology, where they provide information for horoscope charts and planetary alignments.

Overall, ephemerides are vital tools for understanding and navigating the celestial realm.

F is for Fixed Stars

Although all stars are in motion, some appear stationary to us, and we refer to them as fixed stars.

The Four Royal Stars of Persia, including Fomalhaut, Antares, Aldebaran, and Regulus, are considered the primary fixed stars.

They are also known as the watchers of the four cardinal points of North, South, East, and West.

Currently, all of these magnificent stars are located in fixed signs, indicating their significant influence on human affairs.

G is for Glyphs

Glyphs in astrology are symbolic representations used to denote celestial bodies, zodiac signs, and other astrological elements.

Each glyph has a unique design that captures the essence of its corresponding entity.

These symbols serve as a concise and universal language in astrology, enabling astrologers to communicate and record information efficiently.

Glyphs are essential for constructing birth charts, where they represent planets, asteroids and other celestial points.

They are also used to represent zodiac signs, planetary aspects, and other astrological factors in charts and diagrams.

By utilizing glyphs, astrologers can convey complex astrological concepts quickly and accurately, enhancing the understanding and interpretation of astrological systems.

H is for Houses

Houses, alongside signs, form one of the fundamental pillars of astrology.

Astrologers must possess a comprehensive understanding of the significance of houses and the meaning each planet holds within them.

Mastering this knowledge requires time and dedication due to its vast scope. However, the endeavor is immensely rewarding.

For those practicing writing horoscopes, a thorough comprehension of houses becomes indispensable.

It serves as a vital tool for deciphering the intricate dynamics between celestial bodies and human lives, enriching the accuracy and depth of astrological interpretations.

I is for Immun Coeli

In astrology, the Immum Coeli (IC) is a significant point in the birth chart representing the bottommost part of the sky at the time of an individual’s birth.

It is often associated with one’s roots, family, and private life.

The IC signifies the foundation of one’s being, including their upbringing, ancestry, and emotional core.

It influences the person’s sense of security, innermost desires, and personal connection to their home and family.

Understanding the Immum Coeli helps astrologers gain insights into a person’s psychological and emotional foundations, enabling them to explore the deep-seated influences that shape an individual’s sense of belonging and personal identity.

J is for Jupiter

Jupiter stands out in my astrology ABC as the largest planet by a significant margin.

It boasts an impressive number of satellites and is renowned for its iconic Great Red Spot.

Associated with growth, luck, and all things expansive, Jupiter holds dominion over the signs of Sagittarius and traditionally rules Pisces.

These two signs are bicorporeal, symbolized by dual entities within each: Sagittarius depicts a man and a horse, while Pisces showcases two fish.

Jupiter’s influence extends to all that is grandiose and abundant, amplifying the qualities of these signs and emphasizing the multifaceted nature of their symbolism.

K is for Kepler

Johannes Kepler established three laws of planetary motion, and his second law holds particular relevance for astrologers.

This law states that a planet will cover equal areas in equal times.

Consequently, when a planet is closer to the Sun in its orbit, or at perihelion, it moves more rapidly through the zodiac signs.

In contrast, when it is farther away at aphelion, its movement through the signs is slower.

For example, Pluto’s orbit brings it close to the Sun in Scorpio and farther away in Taurus.

Therefore, it takes twenty years for Pluto to transit Scorpio, but it takes forty years to transit Taurus, underscoring the impact of Kepler’s second law on astrological calculations.

L is for Local Mean Time

Local mean time, an essential component in manual chart calculations, required determination in the past.

It differs from standard time within a specific time zone.

Local mean time refers to the time in your specific geographic location, accounting for the variations in longitude.

Prior to the convenience of standardized time zones, individuals had to calculate their local mean time based on their specific longitude.

This adjustment allowed for more accurate astrological chart calculations, taking into account the precise positioning of celestial bodies at the moment of an individual’s birth in their particular location.

M is for Midheaven

The Midheaven, a potent and influential point situated at the pinnacle of every chart, holds significant meaning.

It represents one’s highest achievements and honors, reflecting their endeavors in the public sphere and their notable contributions.

This point sheds light on an individual’s professional pursuits, public image, and the activities for which they are recognized.

It plays a crucial role in shaping one’s reputation, be it for positive acclaim or even notoriety.

The Midheaven serves as a compass, guiding astrologers to gain insights into an individual’s standing in the world and their prominent role, or not, in society.

N is for Nodes

The nodes, also known as the lunar nodes, constitute a pair of points in any chart where the path of the Moon intersects with that of the Sun.

These nodes are present in every chart and gradually regress or move retrograde through the zodiac, though they may occasionally remain direct or stationary for brief periods.

The North node implies forthcoming opportunities and one’s future destiny, while the South node signifies the relinquishment of certain aspects or circumstances and points to one’s past experiences.

By analyzing the placement and movements of these nodes, astrologers can gain insights into an individual’s karmic journey and provide guidance for their path ahead.

O is for Orbs

Orbs function as tolerances in astrology, indicating the degree range within which two celestial bodies can form an aspect.

A narrow or tight orb refers to a range of less than one degree, while a wider orb typically extends to about eight degrees for aspects like conjunctions, oppositions, trines, and squares.

The tighter the orb, the stronger and more precise the aspect is considered to be.

A wider orb allows for a more lenient interpretation, acknowledging the potential influence of the aspect even if the exact degree alignment is not as precise.

Orbs provide astrologers with flexibility in assessing the strength and significance of planetary aspects within a birth chart.

P is for Planets

The planets within a chart embody the energetic forces at play.

Their placement indicates areas of activity and significance.

As planets occupy houses, they infuse vitality and meaning into them.

Planetary positions in signs can determine their state of happiness or lack thereof, which is influenced by their essential dignity.

This reflects how well a planet aligns with the qualities and characteristics of a given sign.

Essentially, the planets serve as active participants, shaping the dynamics and expressions within a chart, with their location and essential dignity providing valuable insights into their influence and impact.

Q is for Quadrants

The four quadrants are defined by two axes: the Ascendant and Descendant, as well as the Midheaven and IC.

  • The first quadrant lies below the Ascendant and represents the realm of the private self.
  • The second quadrant lies below the Descendant, embodying the private interactions with others.
  • The third quadrant sits above the Descendant, symbolizing the public interactions with others.
  • The fourth quadrant resides above the Ascendant, denoting the public self and one’s outward presence.

R is for Retrogrades

With the exception of the Sun and Moon, all planets undergo retrograde motion.

Mercury retrogrades three times annually, Venus retrogrades five times within an eight-year period, and Mars retrogrades approximately once every two years.

The remaining planets experience retrograde motion each year.

The outer planets enter retrograde from their trine aspect to the Sun, continue through the opposition, and conclude at the subsequent trine.

When the outer planets are opposite the Sun, they are all in retrograde.

Retrograde periods add unique dynamics to planetary influences, providing astrologers with valuable insights into the complexities of planetary energies and their impact on individuals’ lives.

S is for Sun Signs

Sun signs are the gateway to astrology as everyone is familiar with their own Sun sign.

It’s usually the first thing people learn about astrology.

Even individuals who are not into astrology are aware of their Sun sign and read horoscopes related to it in the media.

Your Sun sign is determined by the position of the Sun on the day of your birth, such as being in Gemini if your birthday falls between May 21 and June 20.

The signs are categorized into polarities, elements, and modes.

T is for Transits

When beginning the study of astrology, one of the first forecasting techniques introduced is the use of transits.

In fact, many astrologers solely rely on transits for their forecasting practices.

Transits focus on the current and future positions of planets, providing insight into their movements in the upcoming weeks, months, or even years.

By observing where the planets are presently and where they will be in the future, astrologers can gain valuable information about the potential influences and developments in an individual’s life.

Transits serve as a foundational tool for forecasting, enabling astrologers to analyze the dynamic interplay between celestial bodies and their impact on an individual’s chart.

Mars in Virgo

Mars in Virgo

Mars in Virgo

In this post, we are continuing our transit series of planets moving through the signs. We are typically only going to focus on superior planet transits which are the planets from Mars outwards. Of course, there may be exceptions. This time we are taking a closer looking at Mars in Virgo.

Transiting Mars Dates 2023

Mars takes two years to fully transit the whole zodiac. Mars will leave Leo and be in Virgo from July 10, 2023 to August 27, 2023 when it enters Libra. That’s seven weeks in the sign of the Virgo the Virgin.


Let’s take a quick look at Mars. Mars rules the signs of Aries and Scorpio. Mars is an action planet that uses heat and friction for energy release. Mars suggests some activities that get you off the couch. Energy management can be an indication of Mars. Your competitive edge is suggested by Mars. Mars expresses your primate urges and the desire to copulate.


Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and is ruled by Mercury. Virgo is earthy, practical and analytical. Virgo is detail oriented. Mars in Virgo is quite a relatively quiet and non confrontational Mars.

Mars in Virgo

Stimulates practical and methodical projects. Actively pursues projects. Many hot details. Mars does not often display outward expressions of aggression and anger when in Virgo. Here the competition is in the details. For instance, the nature of editing and fact checking is a good expression of Mars in Virgo. 

Mars’ Transit of Virgo What to Expect

Virgo Sun

If you have the Sun in Virgo, you will experience a Mars conjoined Sun transit. This could be the impetus you need to get yourself moving. If you have other planets in Virgo they will get stimulated by Mars as it comes by.

Virgo Ascendant

If your ascendant is Virgo then Mars will leave your twelfth house and move into your first house. This is symbolically moving from the dark to the light. And from the unknown into the known. As Mars crosses your Ascendant there will be more activity in your life.

Virgo Midheaven

If you have a Virgo Midheaven Mara will activate your reputation during activity into your career. You may receive acknowledgements for your past actions. This will likely get the blood pumping around.

Mars Return

A Mars return is when Mars comes back to its natal position. This will happen for most people once in every two years. My Mars is at 13 Virgo and that means I’m having a Mars return on July 31, 2023. When Mars reaches its natal position, it triggers all your natalMars aspects and recalibrates any that have drifted off track. You can get more in tune with your Mars energy at a Mara return.

Alison;’s Mars Return Story

Way back in 2012 there was a Mars retrograde cycle in Virgo, that went over my Natal Mars. This created a three-hit transit to my natal Mars. It was at this time that I was spurred into action and I started the Starzology website and blog. I’d never done anything like it before, or since.

I was energized to get the blog populated. I wrote most of my blog posts, that are still live today, during the energy from that triple Mara return. 

I laid out my astrology courses and lessons one afternoon. I took my four kids to the library after school and the older kids needed some books and the young one likes the story hour the librarians put out in the afternoon. I sat against the wall facing forward with a pen and notebook and I laid out the blueprint of what was to become my astrology classes. I divided the classes into three levels namely beginner intermediate and advanced. I wrote the class titles for each series of learning in sixteen classes for each level. This was penned all in one go on one afternoon. Of course, I had to flesh the details out later, but the bones of my project were cemented that day.

The stimulation to action of teaching (3rd house Mars) was, and is, the foundation of my career for the next fifteen years. This culminates in the publishing of my book The Aspiring Astrologer – 52 Self-paced astrology classes. 

Usually, my Mars is quiet and non-confrontational. In Virgo Mars is pretty calm for the most part, but clearly every twenty-four years or so, you may experience a triple hit Mars return.

Mars Transiting Natal Houses

Either way, Mars will transit a house or two in your chart. This will heat up and energize that area of your life indicated by the House. You can anticipate some action, friction and heat in your life as Mars comes by.

People in the Houses

There could be some competition relating to the people in the houses and these are usually the odd house numbers.

People in Houses

For example, the first house is you, the third house your siblings, the fifth house your children, the seventh house your partner, the ninth house your college buddies and the eleventh house your friends and associates.

Other people can be in some of the even houses as well like your financial advisor in the second, your father in the fourth, your vet in your sixth, your surgeon in the eighth, your mother in the tenth and even your ghosts in the twelfth.


If you found this episode interesting and good for thought please share it with anyone who met enjoy it as well. It really helps me.

Thank you in advance.

Election Astrology: Podcast Start Chart

Election Astrology: Podcast Start Chart

Electional Astrology

In this episode, we’re going to have a look at our Starzology Astrology Podcast start chart.

Every entity can have a birth chart and in this case it’s our podcast.

This is the birth chart for the business of the Starzology Astrology Podcast.

It is the chart we chose as the start time and date with which to launch this podcast.

I’m going to explain why we chose the chart that we did and the main features within in it which I believe will support a prosperous podcast business model.

Electional Astrology

To start with this is electional astrology.

It has nothing to do with politics, or who will be the next president or prime minister, but rather it is about electing to do something at some point in the future.

Electional astrology and election charts are often used for business launches and to pick wedding dates.

Electional Chart Principles

Principles of a good election chart are that you reinforce the house that pertains to the activity.

So for example, for a marriage chart it’s the seventh house and for a business chart it is the tenth house.

To reinforce a house you want up place as many positive planets in that house as possible.

As this is a business, we focus on the tenth house of businesses you start yourself.

You also want the Midheaven ruler to be a positive planet or the planet that rules the endeavor.

For instance, if you were opening a restaurant, you would want the Moon in the tenth house because the Moon rules restaurants, food and cooking and if you were opening a beauty salon you would want Venus in the tenth house as Venus rules cosmetics and beauty products.

As this is an astrology podcast business, I wanted Uranus, as the ruler of Astrology, strongly positioned in this chart.

I did this by moving the time to place Uranus in the tenth house.

I also wanted Mercury as the ruler of podcasts, podcasters and podcasting, to be in the tenth house as well.

Planets to Avoid

As a general rule, with Electional astrology you want to avoid the malefic or troublesome planets, so that is Mars, Saturn and Pluto in the tenth house if possible.

Retrograde Planets

You don’t want the planet that rules the subject, in this case Uranus for astrology and Mercury for podcasting, to be retrograde.

When a planet is retrograde it cannot express energy at its highest peak performance.

For any planet, the state of being retrograde brings in a hesitation to the venture and we don’t want that.

The Moon

It is nice to have the Moon growing in light, so waxing, and perhaps in a favourable aspect with the Sun and the ruler of the endeavor in this case Uranus.


The Ascendant and chart ruler could align with the business or even the person’s natal chart who is opening the business.


You usually get a window for an election.

Perhaps you need to open the business in April anytime or if it’s a wedding they usually want it on a Saturday.

So, there are usually some constraints to the time line.

In my case, I wanted to launch the podcast asap and if possible, in April 2023.

I had the first episode already recorded and ready to go, but I waited for a good time and date.

This was my elected time and date.

Launch Date

I launched the Starzology Astrology Podcast at 1:12pm on April 5th in Vancouver.

I give you this chart data so you can erect the chart yourself and follow along.

This elected time and date returned a reinforced tenth house with a Leo Ascendant and an Aries Midheaven.

Tenth House Planets

The planets I managed to squeeze into the tenth house are:

  • The Sun
  • Chiron
  • Mercury
  • Jupiter
  • Venus
  • Uranus

The Sun

The Sun is most the most elevated planet. It is in its exaltation in Aries and closely conjoined the Midheaven at 15° Aries.

This also places it in the Midheaven Gauquelin sector.

The Sun is at the heart of the business and yes, I want to bring my heart and optimism to this venture.

I don’t see it as a doom and gloom astrology podcast, but rather as an uplifting resource for everyone who finds it.

This will bring light, warmth and creativity to the podcast and maybe some fame in the public domain as well.


Chiron is not the easiest of planet to have in the tenth house, but I’m leaning towards the healing and teaching aspect of Chiron.

I hope to tap to this energy from Chiron.

I anticipate sharing astrologer’s journeys and speak to aspiring astrologers around the world to inspire them to live a satisfying life through the energy in their charts.

There may be some lessons to be learned here.

Probably this podcast will not appeal to everyone and that is ok.

I hope the people who do find us can appreciate my message.


The planet of broadcasting and growth, Jupiter, is in the tenth house. And conjoined the Midheaven in the Midheaven Gauquelin sector along with the Sun.

This indicates that the reach of the podcast will be far and wide.

We anticipate expansion and even some luck with this placement of the Greater Benefic in the company’s business house.


Mercury is the planet that rules communication, talking and podcasting.

Mercury is the focal planet of a mini grand trine between Mars, Saturn and Mercury.

This suggests that the slow burn energy from Saturn trine Mars, will be funnelled up to Mercury to get the word out.

Mercury represents the actual podcast and the message which we are trying to bring through this podcast.

How people will hear of our podcast is through word of mouth and people like you sharing your positive experiences when you download an episode and listen in.

I could anticipate the conversations started by the podcast to continue in your minds and lives as you fully digest what has been said.

I also see this podcast as a teaching point for some of you.

If I can get a few listeners like you, to think more about how astrology can benefit you, I will be happy.


The lesser benefic the planet of attraction and money planet, Venus, is also well placed high in the chart in the tenth house.

This augers well for attracting good things including money and attention to the business.

This suggests there will be a good impression of the podcast.

It also suggests that women may be the main audience.

Venus rules the eleventh house of business income which bodes well for a prosperous business income.


Uranus is the one planet that rules astrology.

It is high on the chart, again in tenth house.

This placement supports any business related to astrology.


The Ascendant is Leo the Lion.

This means the Sun is the start chart ruler again reinforcing the sunny and creative nature of this venture.

It is also to be noted that my Sun sign is Leo and this Ascendant correlates to my chart in many ways.

The Midheaven

The Midheaven is Aries ruled by Mars.

This indicates a start-up and an independent businesss venture.

This could suggest a good start but a certain flagging over time.

Time will tell. 

The Moon

The Gibbous Moon is opposite the Sun.

This may suggest some tension between the drive to be public and the need to keep it close to home.

In a way, the nature of podcasting is that an episode is recorded privately at home and then broadcast, publicly to get it out there and into your consciousness.

This is the one feature that I was not sure about.

The Sun opposite Moon aspect.

I felt the rest of the chart was positive for a business launch for an astrology podcast.

Inspiring Others

I hope that the work I’m doing here will inspire other people to take what astrology they know and run with it.

I believe that your mind can explore your current astrology skills and take you down some exciting roads.

We don’t know where you will end up, but at least you will have taken the first step.

Many people who learn astrology don’t turn into consulting astrologer, but they use the knowledge to enhance other parts of their lives or related businesses.

People like coaches, artists, numerologists and healers from all walks of life can improve their insights with some understanding of astrology.

I urge you to look at the craft from all sorts of different angles, and yes, I know there are angles in a birth chart, to find the treasures within the teachings of astrology which resonate with you and your chart and dig deep.

Exploring Astrology

I believe in exploring astrology by going down all the nooks and crannies and finding ways to present it differently.

I did this in 2011 with my extensive research into the Oriental Planet. Where I dug deep into this topic for over two years.

Again in 2015 I pushed forward with some original research into the Five Types of Dispositor Tree and the specific positions planets can hold within a Dispositor Tree.

Once again during 2018 with my tentative exploration of the Fibonacci Aspects. Which did not go very far, but still…

And once more recently with what I’m calling the “Astrologer’s Holy Trinity” research that I’m doing now.

Not all of this research has gone somewhere, but some of it has.

You don’t know what will take off until you try.

What do they say, “Sow your seeds in the morning, then keep busy all afternoon, because you never know what will grow.”

Discover Research

Whatever you think about most in astrology is likely to be a place where you can develop something of value in the future.

I believe that great things can be imagined and brought forward from all modern astrologers.

Just because astrology has been around for so long, thousands of years, does not mean there is nothing left to explore.

In this episode, I’m going to explain my current research into the Astrologer’s Holy Trinity and the highest-level temperature of the chart thus reducing it down to only four values.


We used to refer to the two polarities in different ways than we do today.

  • Black and White
  • Masculine and Feminine
  • Positive and Negative
  • Active and Passive

I’ll be using the terms active and passive signs.


The very nature of energy on Earth is in balance.

In a way this can be seen by the magnetic North and the South Poles.

As I understand it, one pole ejects positive ions and the other pole absorbs them.

The poles swap back and forth over time and are somewhat aligned to the eleven-year sunspot cycle.


In a bar magnet the magnetic lines can be seen when you tap iron filings.

They come out of one end and go back in the other.

The Sun

The Earth’s magnetic field has both a positive and a negative pole. This is similar to the Zodiac sign polarities.

Sign Polarity

Active Signs

The active signs are:

  • Aries
  • Gemini
  • Leo
  • Libra
  • Sagittarius
  • Aquarius

Passive Signs

The passive signs are:

  • Taurus
  • Cancer
  • Virgo
  • Scorpio
  • Capricorn
  • Pisces

Trinity Chart Components

There are three main components of a chart.

  • Ascendant
  • Sun
  • Moon

List your main component polarities in this order of importance.

First the Ascendant, then the Sun and then the Moon.


In this example we have, a Virgo Ascendant, a Cancer Sun and an Aries Moon.

This would be listed as (Virgo, Cancer, Aries) or (VI,CA,AR)

Which converts to (-, -, +)

The other options are:

+ + +

–  + +

+  + –

+ – +

– + –

– – +

+ – –

– – –

So what?

Well, it’s a high-level way to analyze the chart. Through a elevated approach of the core components with just Ascendant, Sun and Moon.

And it’s probably the highest.

Most will be either +2 and -1 or -2 and +1.

Let’s do the Maths

+2 -1 = +1

-2 +1 = -1

+3 = +3

-3 = -3


There are only 4 options for a score.

-3, -1, +1 and +3

Interpretations of Final Four

Let’s start with some obvious keywords.

Minus Three

Super passive – Cold – Icy 💙

Minus One

Moderately passive – Chilled – Cool 💚

Plus One

Moderately active – Warm – Toasty 💛

Plus Three

Super active – Hot – Sizzling ❤️

Ongoing Research

This is as far as I’ve got with the Holy Trinities and the extension of plus one, plus three, minus one and minus three research.

Is this going somewhere?

I don’t know.

Is it useful for astrologers to know these hot numbers?

Time will tell.

Let me know what you think.

Episode 001: Transcript

Alison Price: Hi Starz, you’re listening to the Starzology Astrology Podcast with your host, Alison Price. In this episode, we’re going to be chatting with another astrologer and finding out their story about how they got into astrology. 

Please welcome Arwynne who is a research astrologer here in Vancouver and we’ve been a, we’ve been friends for quite a while, and we are very happy to have you here today.

Arwynne O’Neill: Thank you. It’s good to be here. 

Alison: Ah, it’s great having you. Our audience is interested to know how you started out in astrology and what was the first spark of interest that you had. 

Arwynne: Sure. Well, I actually grew up in a family of sort of casual astrologers in a way. My grandmother and my mother were both very just into astrology in a casual way.

I think both of them at some point did charts for, for friends and, and maybe for a living here and there. It was just part of the conversation as I was growing up. It was always like, oh, I just met this person. They’re a Virgo with Leo Rising, blah, blah, blah. It was always just, before you’d even know what the person looked like, oh, this person was a Virgo.

It was the first thing that you’d find out about somebody. My mother, still to this day, when I tell her about a new friend or a, a new, co-worker, she’s, she’s like, what sign are they? ? And if I don’t know, well, oh, well, why haven’t you asked? So it’s just part of the conversation, and it always has been in, in my, in my childhood, in my life, the first spark of.

Sort of external to my family was Absolutely, and it, this is funny. This is a call back to your first episode where you talked about Suns by Linda Goodman. Yeah. I mean, we’re giving Linda Goodman a lot of, airtime here, but it was Love Signs. I have to admit, I still have it. It’s on the shelf.

It’s a big red book. Linda Goodman’s website. Linda. Good. You have a hardback copy then with the No, it’s a paper bag, but it’s a massive tone. It doesn’t need to be a hardback. Yes, it’s got the bright lurid red cover. Yeah. Linda Goodman’s love science, and I was 12. I was all of 12 years old, and so everything was about love.

Everything was about like the one true love. Just all of the romantic movies, all the romantic stories, the, the fact that there’s Peter Pan quotes at the beginning of every chapter. Yes. Which are just so poignant and true for every sign combination. And I did my sign and my boyfriend at the time, and my mother and her husband, and everyone and all the celebrities I could think of who were couples. I would read their, their little, chapter and, and found so much meaning in it. And that is definitely what sparked my, my interest in astrology was being a, a pubescent Linda Goodman fan girl. Wow. Yeah. That is amazing. 

Alison: So, what you’re saying really is that you learned about astrology almost at the kitchen table in your own home.

Arwynne: It was, oh, absolutely. Just a matter of course, that astrology was part of your, your life as a, as a young girl. Absolutely. 

Alison: And were they interested in other new age topics as well, or was it mainly astrology? 

Arwynne: some, yeah. I mean, we had Tarot cards. We had crystals. We had, crystal necklaces and jewelry and things like that.

I mean, it was. Late seventies, early eighties, when I grew up. So there was a lot of that kind of stuff around and, and we were also like very much into science fiction and fantasy, like shows and movies. One of the things I remember vividly sitting around watching, watching Star Trek, the Next Generation with my mother and my stepfather. And we would like, figure out what their sun, moon, and rising signs were of all the characters. Oh, stop Trek, right? Yes. It’s just, just figuring out these, these fictional characters, like what, what signs are do they embody? Like, and I was watching the, the Picard show recently and I texted my mother and said, Picard is totally a Taurus with, Sagittarius rising in Moon in Aquarius and she was like, lol. Totally. 

So we’ve done this all our lives. Yeah. Yeah 

Alison: And then, when you got a bit older, did you take any formal lessons or did you just continue, self-learning? 

Arwynne: It was really just self-learning. I mean, and actually I took about probably a 20 year break almost between, the Linda Goodman love signs and, and doing anything semi-professional or, even social with it.

It was all just, I collected the information for myself. I would obviously find out what sign my friends. Boyfriends or, coworkers were, and just for my own benefit, like, yeah, sometimes they would be like, why do you wanna know what time I was born? And I’m like, just for me, like, don’t worry.

I’m not gonna, do your chart or anything. You’re like, whatever. Okay. And most of them wouldn’t have wanted me to. No. So it was just, my own curiosity so I could use the information to get along with them better. And yeah, it helped me. And occasionally they would ask,

Alison: But what was the, what was the catalyst then, like the 20 years later that that brought you back? Was there something that cropped up? 

Arwynne: Absolutely. I, well, I, I started asking my grandmother for book recommendations, and it’s funny because this is mid-nineties we had just gotten a computer, which is sounds so ridiculous. Yes. We had just gonna go a home computer.

Alison: And the neighbors came to look, right?

Arwynne: Well, no, it was, it was the internet. I mean, literally, I had the internet at work throughout the nineties and the, I think it was like 98 or something when I first got the internet at home. Right. It sounds ridiculous to say like imagine not having the internet at home. Like what?  but yeah, literally it was, it was just looking at websites and finding a bunch of astrology sites.

I mean, a bunch back then there were like, a handful of good ones. Yeah. was and still is. Amazing. Planet Waves I found, and Planet Waves was amazing because it was also political. And I remember the first thing that got me into it was, was rants about George W. Bush and the administration and the war in Iraq.

And, now we’re getting into the early two thousands. And his, his essays were, it was, it hit all kinds of different interests of mine. There was the astrology, but there was also politics. There was also social consciousness. And I, remember this one article that he had written where he said, well, okay, so Taurus, or sorry, Mars is going to Taurus and it’s gonna be retrograde.

And I looked at my chart and sure enough, I’ve got Mars and Taurus. And so he said,  if anyone out there wants to do some research into the history of Mars and Taurus retrograde, send me some, send me some events that have happened, like major events in, in the past. And I thought, well, that’s right up my alley.

So I wrote like three pages of research, just un, un . Whatever, and, and sent it in. And,  that sparked his interest. And so who, who is he? Oh, I’m, I’m so sorry. Eric Francis,  of Planet Waves. Eric Francis of Planet Waves. Yeah. And, and he wrote back to me right away, which was, it was kind of like getting, a spotlight from a celebrity.

And, and I wrote back to him and, and we started a sort of a correspondence and I ended up working,  for Planet Waves for like,  Doing research, writing articles. I, I traveled to Toronto to present at a conference on my Saturn Neptune opposition, article, which became a, a presentation. It was sort, kind of almost the cornerstone of, of the conference.

I mean, not to brag or whatever, but I was actually a little shocked because it was, Quite a, a prestigious conference, in its way. It was, it was kind of a small independent conference. Yeah. Not like these big, as they put it, Davos-style astrology conferences. Yes. With all the celebrities, but it was, it was, kind of a little bit of a big deal.

And, mine was one of the only presentations that didn’t have,  a competing event at the same time. And I didn’t know that until the day. And I was like, wow, there’s a lot of people signed up for this one. And they’re like, There’s nothing else going on at this time.  so I was incredibly nervous, but I, I did okay.

I basically just read my article, but I had a big, PowerPoint thing with all the,  all the photos of all these crazy events, and I basically went through the, the history of Saturn opposite Neptune in, in all these, previous cycles and, so I had like the,   like 1918. Spanish flu and all these different sort of epic water disasters that had happened, the Exxon Valdez.

Okay. And, and, and the, the flood of New Orleans in, in 2005. These all kind of happened like right on the dot of, of Saturn, Neptune oppositions. And it was like, heavy water was the name of the presentation that I did. It was like, heavy water, Saturn, Saturn, Neptune, amazing. And,  yeah.

So I had, I had like this huge slideshow with all these amazing photos and  it was a lot of. So that was, that was definitely the first sort of professional astrology thing that I was involved in. And Well, that’s, that sounds like it was an absolute, a spectacular entryway for you to Yeah to get it on a gig like that.

Yeah. back then. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So that was 2006 and,  yeah, that was the, that was the first sort of re-entry into astrology, publicly doing astrology. Yeah. 

Alison: Interesting. Now, what could you tell us about, what do you really love about astrology? What is it that really attract. To the art of astrology?

Arwynne: Well, I mean, for me it really is. It’s an art and a science, which is something that I love about it. I’m,  I am an artist as well, but I’m sort of more of a, a crafty artist than like a, a creative artist. I’m not to say that I’m not creative, but,  I sew. Okay. And I, but I sew from patterns. I don’t, I don’t have these visions of a garment that I need to, somehow create, I, I can, I can craft something impeccably as a Virgo nice.

But, but with a pattern, and I can modify patterns to make something exactly as I want it. But I, I’m not the person who has these visions of something that doesn’t exist, that needs to be pulled into creation, like a, like a, a Pisces or something. 

Alison: And. So do you see astrology as well as a creative artwork?

Arwynne: Really? I mean, it’s a creative, like the storytelling is, is the creative part for me. Yes. And so it’s taking all these elements which exist. They, they are mathematical, which, and, and I’m not a math fan. Yes. But what I, what I do love about it is the precision that you can find these exact dates, these exact cycles.

You can predict them way in advance thousands of years, project them back thousands of years and find these cycles that. And then find these historical correlations, because thank God for the internet, we can find all these, all these events. It, it takes very little research to, to say, show me all of the times that Pluto has been in Aquarius and then all of the, the major events that happened in those periods, and then compare them and say, oh my God, there’s, there’s actually, something in common with these things.

And wow, what can we learn about that? What. Due to predict something into the future. Right. And that’s what I’ve always loved about it was the, the precision and the, the practicality of it. The applicability of it to our lives and, and to, broader social and political and historical trends. 

Alison: Wow. So you’re, you like the, almost, let me say the overarching cycles that are running behind in the background, not just, oh, it’s a new moon and blah blah.

Arwynne: Absolutely. Okay. In fact, I barely ever know where the. It surprises me every month when I see that it’s full. And my boyfriend always says, how can you not know you’re an astrologer? How can, how can you not know when the Moon’s full? And I’m like, yeah, it’s not my thing. It’s not your thing. So it’s super interesting that, yeah, the moon’s not my thing.

Alison: No, it’s not your thing. So, how would you say that you actually are using astrology, today in, in your practice? 

Arwynne: It’s always something that I am aware of like when I’m watching Picard and I’m thinking, oh wow, he’s such a Taurus with Sagittarius rising in mooned, Aquarius, or what have you and I’m, I’m really fascinated with the broader cycles or the, the outer planets, where Pluto is, going into Aquarius and all of a sudden we’ve got chat GPT Yes. And self-driving cars. Yes. And. It’s crazy to me like how right on the date sometimes these things are. When, Uranus moved into, I believe it was Aries, Aries back in 2011 on the day the tsunami hits in, in Japan.

Tragic. It’s horrible, incredible, tragedy. But it’s, it’s these crazy events that you can kind. See the day sometimes. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. The corresponds with a movement of the outer planets and  and that’s the stuff that fascinates me. The, the generational cycles, but also like these major events that, that seem to correspond sometimes.

Yeah. So precisely. I mean, cuz we’re talking that Pluto just recently went into, Aquarius, what, two weeks ago? From, from today. And honestly, I too have now got into chatGPT and I. Whoa. Right.  Revolut, it’s transformed to revolutionize the actual,  the internet and the way we use computers. Very interesting indeed.

And it’s gonna be in, in Aquarius for the next 40 years. And what is that, what are the next 40 years gonna hold as far as ai? I mean, just that alone is a fascinating thought experiment. That’s a, yeah, that is definitely a topic for another day. I for sure, definitely explore that as well. 

Alison: So now Arwyenne, could you tell us a little bit about your chart just for our listeners to, get a bit of an understanding of, of your chart standouts, or which, parts of your chart do you feel are more prominent and are drivers for you?

Arwynne: Sure. Well I am a Virgo. I’ve sort of triple Virgo. I’ve got the Sun, the Moon and Mercury, conjunct in Virgo in the 10th house.  so that’s definitely like my personality for sure. Core personality, like everything in its place. I’m a writer, blah, blah, blah. but I also have Scorpio rising and Wow, that is probably, the most noticeable thing about me first front and center.

I, even at the age of like, Say 12. I was, I, I went through a, not goth, but I mean, I was wearing lipstick and, my hair always was a different color and, okay. Okay. So you presented yourself. I I was always being mistaken for like 16 or 17 when I was like 12 or 13. And honestly it was the eighties.

It was a different time. Yes, yes, I understand. it’s,  there was no bad parenting involved. My mother was actually a little horrified by, the attention that I got. She’d seen my chart. She, she knew the deal. just obviously I just Scorpio rising responsibly is all I have to say about that.

Alison: And so with Scorpio is rising like that, would you say that Pluto is more dominant or Mars in your chart? 

Arwynne: Honestly, it’s both really. It’s interesting because Mars is right on my descendant Mars and Taurus is literally conjunct my descendant and my partner is a scorp. And hilariously, his Sun is conjunct my rising, like within minutes his, he’s got two degrees or two, yeah, two degrees and like 11 minutes.

And my rising is two degrees, six minutes. So we couldn’t be more conjoined. And when we met it was, I hesitate to say love at first sight. Crazy. And yeah, it, we’ve just been inseparable literally ever since then. Amazing. 

Alison: And what about the Pluto? 

Arwynne: The Pluto, the Pluto? yeah. Pluto is in my 11th house, conjunct Venus, and those are in Libra. Okay. Very feminine there as well. They Okay. Like conjunct in Libra and Yeah. my relationships have always been life or death to me. I don’t. Casual relationships. I don’t understand casual friendships. it’s all in the 11th house. I, I don’t understand the point of being in a relationship where you wouldn’t kill or die for your partner.

Alison: Wow. Kill or be killed. 

Arwynne: Yes. Yeah, exactly. And, and luckily I’ve,  had, incredibly good fortune or whatever you wanna say to, to have partners who feel the same way. Me. Super intense. Yes. Yeah and I’ve been with my, current partner for 25 years now. 

Alison: So you need a medal for that one. 

Arwynne: Yeah.

Alison: So would you, so you said, didn’t you just say that Pluto is conjoined Venus, and how do you think that may be expressed? 

Arwynne: I was obsessed with Barbie from a very young age. and that’s a Venus thing, although lots of girls were, I did go through as, as I said, dancing maybe tiny goth phase. Yes. I just recently picked up,  burlesque and I also was,  I drew burlesque dancers for about 10 years.

In, we, we had this thing called, Dr. Sketchy’s, which is an art class. Bars that,  that just shut down because of Covid. Sadly, this is where all my art came from, from the last 10 years, is drawing these beautiful burlesque dancers who would,  would pose for three hours in bars. And,  and I met a lot of these burlesque dancers, who now wow, I have actually shared the stage with over the last year since I started doing this.  so this is amazing. And we’ll put a link to, we’ll put a link to some of your art, in the show notes as well. Sure, yeah. Yeah. So it’s, it’s super interesting that you’ve taken up this, expression of that Venus Yeah. Can join the Pluto. I think it’s actually hilarious. Also my grandmother in 1950s was a burlesque dancer briefly in really Hawaii. So it’s, it’s actually kind of a family. Funnily enough, she was a Sagittarius, but whatever. It’s, yeah, but I definitely do see that, Venus conjunct Pluto there. It’s, and it’s also the kind of, the, the owning your sexuality or owning that whole thing, whatever the empowerment sort of thing of it.

It’s, when my grandmother was doing it in the fifties, it was definitely not really about empowerment. It was, it was a little bit less, of a, of a thing back then, but I mean, from the pictures you’d never guess. you would just think, wow, she’s owning it. That’s amazing. what an icon.

 and it was a little but also too grittier back then, but, but yeah, now it’s just all women. It’s all, . Well there’s also trans women. There’s also, wonderful. male to female, female to male. Like it’s all shapes and sizes and, and the dogs. It’s true. Everything. Yeah. Exactly. And it’s a really amazing community and it’s a lot of fun.

It’s really cool. It’s quite an expression. Yeah. Quite a, a visual expression of those two entities coming together in the chart. Yeah. Super interesting. Yeah. And also, as you say, it’s in the 11th house, so that is, as you say, it’s a, a troupe. Like, so there’s community. The 11th house is all about your, your friends and your community and sort of your, your social your squad.

Alison: Squad.

Arwynne: Yeah, exactly. Squad goals. Yeah. 

Alison: Great. Now the next thing I just wanna have a chat with you about is, Very often, when people have in interviews and conversations on podcasts, they do this lightning round tea, coffee, cat or dog. But because we are astrologers, what, what I’m gonna be doing is what we are calling the Holy Trinity, and that is your Ascendant, Sun Moon in that order and, we are just going to have a quick chat about that. Could you tell us your Ascendant, Sun and Moon? 

Arwynne: Scorpio is Scorpio Rising Scorpio, descendant of Virgo Sun and Virgo Moon. So we are saying, Scorpio. Virgo. Virgo. Yeah. Which is super interesting because, I, I’ve, I’ve been looking into this, pattern of the polarities of the active and passive.

Alison: Mm-hmm, and, the combinations, and I think there’s only 16 (actually 8) combinations are, will link to the website, post about this. 

So in your particular case, it would be passive, passive, passive, which is a combinnation which actually expresses who you are for sure. 

Arwynne: Oh, yeah. In a very deep way. 

Alison: So it’s super interesting and I believe that, going forward or in the future doesn’t want to say going forward in the future.

I’d be interested to just ask those things about people’s charts. Yeah. Because I don’t think that’s giving too much away and it’s a great way to, tap into the astrology rather than the cat dog thing. Yeah or coffee tea beause nobody cares. But we wanna know what’s your Ascendant, Sun and Moon is.

And of course if you go to an astrology conference and you have that little tag on your shirt, it. A sentence on Moon. 

Arwynne: I wish people had to wear those everywhere. 

Alison: Yeah, and then you, you go up to the people who think, yeah, no, I’m not gonna talk to that one. Let me talk to this one. Because you can see what their signs are.

So that’s a super interesting thing. Yep. Exactly. So, Arwynne, if our listeners would like to see some of your artworks, is it okay if we put a link in the show notes?

Arwynne: Absolutely.

Alison: Where they can see the type of work you’re doing? 

Arwynne: Absolutely. That would be great. 

Alison: Lovely. Well, thank you very much for being here with us today it’s been a pleasure as always. 

Arwynne: Thank you. It’s been wonderful to be here. Thank you.

Vocational Astrology

Vocational Astrology


While the terms “job,” “career” and “vocation” are often used interchangeably, they have slightly different meanings. In your birth chart the three are indicated by different components as well.

Finding your vocation is not a one-time event but a continuous process of self-discovery and growth. With patience, perseverance, and an open mind, you can discover a path that aligns with your values, interests, and skills, and find fulfillment and purpose in your work.


A job is typically a specific task or series of tasks that a person performs in exchange for compensation. It is often temporary or short-term and may not require a high level of skill or training.

For example, a part-time job at a retail store, a summer internship, or a freelance project can be considered a job. People may have multiple jobs throughout their lives and may not have a specific career path in mind.

In your birth chart your job is shown by your sixth house complex.


A career refers to a series of jobs or positions that an individual holds over the course of their working life. Careers are often associated with a specific profession or field and are generally viewed to achieve financial stability and success. While some people may feel a strong sense of vocation towards their chosen career, others may view it as simply a means to an end.

A career is a long-term profession chosen and developed over time. It requires a higher level of education, skill, and training and often involves a clear pathway for advancement and growth. Careers are typically more stable and provide a sense of fulfillment and purpose.

For example, becoming a doctor, lawyer, engineer, or teacher can be considered a career. People may have one or multiple careers throughout their lives and may work for different employers in the same field.

In your birth chart your career is shown by your Midheaven, tenth house complex and sometimes by Saturn.


A vocation is a calling or a sense of purpose that drives an individual towards a particular type of work. It’s often considered a deep-seated passion or a natural inclination towards a certain profession or field.

Vocations are typically associated with personal fulfillment and a sense of meaning and purpose in life. People with a strong vocational calling often feel a sense of satisfaction and joy from their work, even if it’s not financially rewarding.

In your birth chart your vocation is shown by your Oriental Planet complex.

Different but Similar

While a job, vocation and career are different concepts, they can overlap in certain situations.

For example, a person who feels a strong vocational calling towards teaching may choose to pursue a career as a teacher. In this case, their career and vocation align, allowing them to find both personal fulfillment and financial success in their work. This is shown by the complexities in your unique birth chart.


Ultimately, the difference between job, vocation and career lies in the motivation and purpose behind the work. While all can lead to professional success, a vocation is driven by a deeper sense of purpose and personal fulfillment, while a job or career is generally focused on financial stability and advancement within a particular field.

How to Find Your Vocation

Finding your vocation in life can be a challenging but rewarding journey. A vocation is a strong sense of calling or purpose in life, where your talents and interests align with a meaningful and fulfilling occupation.

Here are some steps you can take to find your vocation:


Start by asking yourself questions about your values, interests, and skills. Reflect on what you enjoy doing, what you are good at, and what you care about. Think about how you want to contribute to the world and what kind of impact you want to make.

Explore Different Options

Research and explore different career paths that align with your interests and skills. Consider talking to people who work in those fields to gain insight into what their day-to-day work entails. Attend career fairs, take courses, and volunteer to gain hands-on experience and exposure.


Take risks and try new things to discover your strengths and limitations. Take on new challenges and opportunities that can help you build your skills and confidence and to learn about your strengths and limitations. Consider internships, part-time jobs, or freelance work to gain experience and exposure.

Seek Guidance

Consider seeking guidance from your astrologer, mentor, career coach, or counselor. They can provide you with valuable advice, feedback, and support as you navigate your journey towards finding your vocation.

Stay Open and Flexible

Keep an open mind and stay flexible as you explore different paths. Be willing to pivot and adjust your goals as you gain new insights and experiences.

Identify Your Passions

Start by making a list of things that excite and inspire you. Consider your hobbies, interests, and any activities that you enjoy doing in your free time. Identifying your passions is a process of self-discovery and exploration.

Pay Attention to Your Emotions

Pay attention to the activities that make you feel happy, energized, and fulfilled. These can be good indicators of your passions.

Think Back to Your Childhood

Consider the activities that you enjoyed doing as a child. Did you have any hobbies or interests that you were particularly passionate about?

Consider Your Values

Think about what is important to you and what you believe in. What kind of causes or issues do you feel strongly about?

Try New Things

Be open to trying new things and stepping outside of your comfort zone. This can help you discover new passions and interests.

Take a Personality Test

Consider taking a personality test that can help you identify your strengths and interests. This can be a good starting point for discovering your passions.

Keep a Journal

Write down your thoughts and feelings about different activities that you try. This can help you identify which ones bring you the most joy and fulfillment.

Pay Attention to your Energy Levels

Notice which activities give you energy and which ones drain you. Activities that give you energy are more likely to be aligned with your passions.

Contemplate Your Talents

Think about the skills and talents that come naturally to you. What do you excel at? These can be good indicators of your passions.

Talk to People

Talk to friends, family, and colleagues about their interests. This can help you discover new ideas and perspectives.

Follow Your Curiosity

Be curious about the world around you and explore different topics. You never know where your passions may lie.

Consider Your Skills

Think about the skills you have developed throughout your life, both through formal education and work experience. Consider what comes naturally to you and what you excel at.

Explore Different Vocations

Research and learn about different careers that interest you. Read articles, attend career fairs, and talk to people who work in those fields.


Volunteer in areas that interest you to gain hands-on experience and exposure to different types of work.

Take Courses

Take courses in areas that interest you to gain knowledge and skills that can help you in your career.

Take a Vocational Class

If you are an Aspiring Astrologer you can sign up for a private vocational astrology class.

Next Steps

When you are ready to invest in yourself consider booking an astrological vocational consultation with me.

Pluto in Aquarius

Pluto in Aquarius

Pluto in Aquarius

Astrological News for 2023

The biggest Astrological update for the year 2023 is that the dwarf planet Pluto, ruler of Scorpio, will leave cardinal earth Capricorn and enter the new sign of fixed air sign Aquarius the Water Bearer.

This is huge and will affect everyone for many years to come.

When an outer planet (Uranus, Neptune of Pluto) shifts signs it changes the background energy for all charts and horoscope work.

Pluto’s Orbit

Pluto’s Time Scale

Pluto takes around 240 years to go around the Zodiac, so it was back in. 1798 when Pluto last left the sign of the Water Bearer.

Because Pluto takes so long to transit through each sign, we generally have twenty to thirty years of one Pluto influence by sign.

The Pluto in Capricorn influence is beginning to fade.

Pluto in Aquarius Fireside Chat – Video

In this video, I chat with my good friend and research astrologer Arwynne O’Neill about the Pluto Aquarius ingress. You can see Arwynne’s mini bio and contact details at the end of this post.

Planets in Transit

The book which Arwynne references in the above video is Planets in Transit by Robert Hand. This is truly the forecasting astrologer’s bible.

Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

And if you look closely at the banner at the top of this screen, Robert Hand has been a favorite author of mine and his books have been on my bookshelf for many years.

Pluto in Aquarius – Three Ingresses

First Ingress

For the first time in living memory, Pluto initially ingresses, or enters, Aquarius on March 23, 2023.

Pluto then retrogrades back into Capricorn on June 12, 2023, where it remains for around six months.

Second Ingress

Next Pluto enters Aquarius for the second time on November 19th, 2024 to remain for four months.

Then it again retrogrades back into Capricorn.

Third Ingress

Pluto finally moves into Aquarius on November 19th, 2024 to stay for a long time.

From this point onwards Pluto will transit Aquarius for nineteen years until it leaves to enter Pisces on March 9, 2043.

This means that Pluto will be in Aquarius for around twenty years give or take a whisker.

Pluto’s Symbolism


The concept of power, and personal power is a theme for Pluto.

Where you have personal power, or you give it away is shown by the Pluto placement in your chart.

As Pluto transits through Aquarius, it will trigger power issues, power plays and power imbalances, particularly between the sexes, in life.


The main symbolism I use for Pluto is when a boring, green, nondescript caterpillar stuck on one tree, turns into a fabulous, colorful and delicate butterfly, which can fly away and mate.

Pluto is the transformational planet in astrology as it changes or metamorphoses everything it touches.


The cycle of birth, life and death is attributed to Pluto.

We all are born, will live and eventually die and this ongoing life cycle is ruled by Pluto.

This concept can also be applied to self-regeneration and making yourself over like you, but 2.0.

Pluto’s ability to birth a vibrant phoenix from the ashes is a powerful image for this process.

Every time you do a makeover, or change yourself inside or outside, consciously, it is under the influence of Pluto’s regenerative energy.

Aquarius’ Themes


Aquarius has an affinity with society and the faceless people in general.

This means Aquarius pertains to the resources that should be for everyone like water, food and shelter. You can go one step further and say health care and prosperity options.

The Collective

It is concerned with the collective and humanity in general. This is not a sign worried with selfish egos.


Aquarius is the sign associated with stamping out discrimination in all forms. Human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights and all other “rights” are the remit of Aquarius.

Freedom of speech as the core tenant of democracy is a feature of Aquarius.

Pluto in Aquarius Themes

As Pluto begins to transit through Aquarius, we can anticipate themes of transformation in several areas.

Social Reform

We can expect major and deeply effective social reforms for everyone.

This may play out as protests and riots in the streets of first world countries to raise awareness of exactly what goes on in the rest of the world.

The entitlement bubble that many people live in will be truly popped, and reality will come knocking at everyone’s door.

Gender Realignment

We can anticipate full gender realignment and acceptance throughout the world.

This will not be without its challenges.

Burial Practices

There is likely to be a reform in burial practices and how we honor the dead.

It is not easy to predict just how this area may change as I do not know that much about it in general.

I would postulate that the huge cost for funerals and cremations will be addressed so everyone can have the send-off they desire.

Pluto in Aquarius for All Ascendants

Below is a list of how the Pluto in Aquarius Transit will probably affect each Ascendant sign.

If you know your Ascendant sign, read that.

If not, you can read the Sun sign and ask yourself when you are going to get to grips with astrology, get your chart cast and discover your Ascendant sign which is arguably the most sensitive point in your birth chart?

Pluto in Aquarius for Aries Ascendants


You can anticipate finding deeper friendships and acquaintances who turn into life-long friends during this time.

Social Consciousness

There is the likelihood that you will develop a social conscious if you don’t really have one, or you extend your involvement in social issues which affect humanity.

Group Involvement

Anticipate more involvement in groups or causes close to your heart.

Pluto in Aquarius for Taurus Ascendants


This ingress will probably allow you to dig deeper into your career and what it is you truly should be doing with your life.

If you are in politics, you can expect some support from the silent majority now.

Public Domain

Everything you do in the public domain will be scrutinized, so make sure your social profiles are squeaky clean or they may come to haunt you later.


Your reputation can be rejuvenated now.

If you are in the need of a resurrection in some form this period will grant you the chance to show up as your authentic self.

Pluto in Aquarius for Gemini Ascendants


Now you can explore your visions and discover your inner strengths.


This is a great time to replan your life path and ensure you are living the life you want and aspire to and not one wanted for you by your parents, partner or other people.

Higher Education

If you are thinking about taking some higher education the loose fields of surgery, psychology or waste removal may appeal.

Pluto in Aquarius for Cancer Ascendants


This will be the period in your life when you can connect intimately with someone special.


Pluto will provide you the power to overcome any debt, like credit card debt which may be burying you already.

If you get an offer for financial help now, take it.


Be scrupulous with your taxes as this is likely to be the time when you go under the microscope and get an audit.

Pluto in Aquarius for Leo Ascendants


Marriage and your main committed relationships will be of primary importance for you now.

You are likely to connect with someone who will transform your life.

Business Collaborations

Choose wisely and do as much background checking as you can before taking on a business partner or getting into a financial relationship with someone else.

It may be best to avoid all such arrangements unless you are totally convinced of their viability.

Other People

Your relationship with other people may take on a deeper note now.

It could be that you emphasise with people in the street or become embroiled in their lives in some way.

There is the feeling about the Good Samaritan about this placement.

Pluto in Aquarius for Virgo Ascendants

Day-to-Day Activities

This is the time to plunge into your daily activities and live life to the full.


Take good care of your health and don’t ignore any little niggles now. You may be called upon to donate or receive a donation from someone else.


The areas of life that will interest you now are all related to Pluto. Such as uncovering hidden facts or researching at an archaeological dig for example.

Pluto in Aquarius for Libra Ascendants

Risk Appetite

Now your appetite for risk could go either way. You may decide it’s all or nothing or abstain completely.


This is a time in your life when children will profoundly change you.

Projects You Birth

Now you can give birth to projects that truly mean something to you.

As obscure as they may be, now is the moment to put your plans out there.

Pluto in Aquarius for Scorpio Ascendants

Life Foundations

Now is the time to rewrite your history or backstory if it is not doing you any favors.

If your background is holding you back then refresh it like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Family Dynamics

Anticipate people coming and going from your family.

Your family will look very different at the end of this period to what it looks like now.

Home Life

Your home life will receive a transformation.

Pluto in Aquarius for Sagittarius Ascendants

Self-improvement Short Courses

Take the time to delve into many area that interest you.

You will soak up information now.

Research will appeal to you as well.

Siblings and Cousins

Connections with siblings and cousins many take a turn.

You can bring your powerful energy to the situations to save a fraught relationship with these people.

Local Area

How you exist in your neighborhood and with local people like teachers, neighbors and local people will undergo a revolution now.

Be wary of starting a neighborhood issue and remember that good fences make good neighbors.

Avoid confrontation with locals at all costs.

Pluto in Aquarius for Capricorn Ascendants

Money Earned

For Capricorn Ascendants, Pluto enters your life area concerned with net worth.

This covers money you earn and more importantly the money you keep.

Expect to find new ways of earning and keeping your cash and also digging up buried income streams that you may have ignored in the past.


Your own impression of yourself through your self-worth will be transformed when Pluto energizes this sector of your chart.

This indicates there will be a recalibration of how you see your value in life and the lives of others.

You can anticipate a shift of perspective in this area now.


What, and whom, you value will be converted as Pluto moves through this area of life for you.

Pluto in Aquarius for Aquarius Ascendants


At some point in the next twenty years Pluto will directly conjoin you natal Sun.

This will be the most dynamic, life-changing transit that you have ever experienced.

For some people there will be multiple contacts from Pluto to their natal Sun.


How you see yourself will change

Deep down you know who you are and during this period the true you will stand up and be counted.

Physical Body

Anticipate being thoroughly altered both physically and visually now.

This could be by losing weight, getting fit, having a style make-over or attaining a personal color analyst, so you can present yourself in a particular way, which is more in line with your authentic self.

Pluto in Aquarius for Pisces Ascendants

Private Place

For Pisces ascendants Pluto will transform your private life.

This could present as more “me time” or down time to recharge your batteries.

Having a retreat will be the best way for you to navigate this powerful cosmic energy.

Plan at least one retreat or weekend away every year.

Psychological Burnout

Watch out for psychological burnout by giving too much of your life-force to others.

Be mindful of sacrificing yourself at the altar of other people’s whims and needs.

Know that you cannot save the world.

Be aware of stepping into the role of savior or enabler for family and friends.

Awareness of your default attitudes and responses, ingrained or buried over many years, will help you now.

Lifelong Health

Pay attention to every health issue that comes up. Do not hesitate to get a proper diagnosis as soon as possible.

Pay attention to people around you who say they see changes in you which you have not yet noticed.

Be aware and all will be well.


Multiple Manifestations

Over the next twenty years as Pluto will be in Aquarius, obviously many things will happen.

There will be multiple manifestations of the Plutonic energy expressed in an Aquarian manner and through the lens of your own Ascendant and birth chart.

I have provided some ideas here, usually three per Ascendant sign, to whet your appetite.

As I share with you some bite-sized chunks of astrology my hope is that it will give you something to ponder and encourage you to explore this interesting topic further.

Wheel of the Year

My Yule page is an acknowledgement of the Wheel of the Year as the Sun enters Capricorn on December 21 we are at the solstice.

I have the symbol for Yule in the top left and on the top right has an oakleaf to symbolize the movement from the Holly King to the Oak King which happens on Yule.

Yule and the solstice is the actual beginning of the Wheel of the Year.


Yule Log

It’s the dead of winter. In my drawing that I have a yule log burning in the fire.

The idea is that you get one long big tree which is your you’ll log and you stick the fat and into the fireplace and you liked it on December 21 and as it slowly burns you push the tree into the great and I delete should be in for at least 12 days.

Dark to Light

Yule is a time where we are symbolizing the shift from the dark and we start to slowly move into the light.

This time of the year is symbolized by candles the fire and brightness.


December 21st is the shortest day of the year it is also known as the Roman festival of Saturnalia.

Saturn rules Capricorn so it all fits in quite neatly.

2023 Yearly Horoscope Overview

2023 Yearly Horoscope Overview

Main Themes

Each year there are a few overarching planetary trends that set the backdrop for the year.

In 2023 we have three major planetary sign changes bring a focus to three specific signs.

1 Saturn enters Pisces

On March 7th the ringed plant Saturn will leave its traditional home of Aquarius and enters Pisces for the first time in thirty years.

This is a huge shift of energy. Saturn has spent the last five years moving through its own signs of Capricorn and then Aquarius where it is strong.

Saturn in Pisces is entirely different. We can anticipate several themes unfolding during the 2 1/2 years when Saturn is in Pisces.

2 Pluto Enters Aquarius

The biggest sign change of a planet’s sign is in March as Pluto leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius as on March the 23rd, Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time in living memory.

Pluto will go back into Capricorn between June 2023 and January 2024 and again from September 2024 to November 2024 when it will remain in Aquarius until March 2043.

Thus, spending about twenty years in Aquarius and creating a generation of millions of people born with Pluto in Aquarius.

3 Jupiter Enters Taurus

On May the 16th, Jupiter will enter Taurus for twelve months and will be there until May 2024.

Jupiter usually spends just one year in each sign.

This bring opportunity is the nature of the sign and in this case, Taurus.

Who this Will Affect

Jupiter’s passage will create great opportunities for all Taurean Sun sign people as the great planet moves through the sign and conjoins their natal Suns.

I will add more info here soon.

How Saturn’s Energy in Pisces will Manifest

The two-and-a-half-year transit of Saturn through Pisces from 2023 to 2025 will affect all Pisces folks as Saturn draws close and makes a conjunction to your natal Sun.

If will also affect anyone with other planets in Pisces or those people with a Pisces Ascendant or Pisces Midheaven.

To a lesser extent this dynamic energy shift will affect people with chart points, like the North or South Node, the Vertex or the Part of Fortune, in Pisces.

Saturn Transit Position

Only as Saturn moves to within 1°, both applying and separating to your Sun, planets or chart points in Pisces will there be a focus affect for you.

In general, it is not a two-and-a-half-year effect to your natal chart.

Saturn in Pisces and Your Sun Sign

Saturn Aspects to Your Sun – Time Frame

While Saturn is in Pisces it will aspect every Sun sign and this will be different depending on the aspect being formed.

Some aspects are easy, some are challenging and some are neither.

Additionally, as Saturn moves quite slowly, its influence will only come into play when Saturn gets to be within one degree of the perfection of the aspect to your Sun.

Virgo Sun signs

Will receive an opposition from Saturn to your Sun which will probably present as authority figure like your parents, your boss or the government restricting your activities somehow.

Gemini and Sagittarius Sun Signs

Gemini and Sagittarians will receive squares to their natal Sun from Saturn. Squares usually show up as internal struggles with yourself. You may be stopped in your tracks as your make judgements about how you should move forward. Use this time to carefully consider and take your time. There is no rush where Saturn is concerned.

Cancer and Scorpio Sun Signs

The two water signs of Cancer and Scorpio will receive positive energy from Saturn as it make a trine to your Sun signs.

This is likely to present as mastering something in your life.

Aries and Aquarius Sun Signs

The two adjacent signs to Pisces, Aries and Aquarius, may not see much energy either up or down as Saturn moves through Pisces because Saturn will make a semi-sextile to your Sun position.

Leo and Libra Sun Signs

For Leo and Libra, this transit will probably manifest as many adjustments having to be made as Saturn make the irritating quincunx aspect to your Sun position.

Saturn in Pisces in 2023

During 2023 Saturn will only cover the first seven degrees of Pisces. This will specifically affect people born between the 19th and the 26th of February in any given year. These people will receive a triple conjunction from Saturn to their Sun in 2023.

As Saturn retrogrades in the early part of 2023 it brings a higher concentration of its energy to certain parts of the sign and particularly the first quarter or initial seven degrees of Pisces.

Saturn in Pisces What to Expect

Relaxing Laws into Guidelines

The very nature of Pisces is to water down and dilute things like stringent laws that have been in place for years.

Saturn is the planet that rules the government and the establishment so while it is in Pisces strictures will loosen.

Saturn in Pisces for All Signs

If you know your Ascendant sign then read that sign or if not, then read your Sun sign.

Saturn in Pisces for Aries

Saturn enters your private area suggesting you may be alone more. It will be easier to live in isolation and spend your time unaccompanied with your thoughts. You would do well to go on a retreat and spend some time secluded in some way. The lure of bright lights will fade a little for you during this period.

This is the time to look inwards and spend time on self-improvement.

Saturn in Pisces for Taurus

Saturn enters your friendship area suggesting you need to hang with others and find some groups with interests like yours.  It is always easier to meet people when you have a common hobby.

Perhaps activities like photography, hiking, cooking or gardening would appeal to you now. You will benefit from associations with individuals like yourself and those who challenge you in some way. You may decide to volunteer at a food bank or soup kitchen to help your fellow man or woman.

Saturn in Pisces for Gemini

This period will probably be a huge boost for your career as Saturn is the natural ruler of the Midheaven and so your tenth house of career and public life.

Your reputation will be cemented now and you may want to spruce things up a little and remove any juvenile photos, expressions or unsuitable comments that detract from the impression you are trying to project.

You will want to be taken seriously now and you may be attracted to politics, the government or other similar avenues.
