On tonight’s show, I’ll take your calls about the intense changes you’re being asked to make now.

I’ll also go through the natal houses to discuss what Pluto and Uranus in their 7 squares are challenging you to do.

These 7 aspects exact between June of 2012 and March of 2015 bring up tension between the structures in your life and how you might be abdicating your power of free will (Pluto in Capricorn) and the need to be bold, free, original, and inventive so that you can embrace how you’re wired and fully live who you were born to be (Uranus in Aries).

We’ve had 6 of these squares so far, and the effect of being triggered to boldly embody creative, empowering change is growing in an order of magnitude with each. We have to act on the invitations of these two planets or energy will build up in us, escalating tension, frustration, and anger that can come out in unintentional, destructive ways. But being intentional with the energies is entirely possible, and that’s what my work on the squares is all about.

I’ve done a few shows and many blog posts discussing the 7 squares, and this live show for you to call into will add to them by spelling out issues related to the houses – parts of life – in which these squares have been happening for you.

Call (877) 230-3062 during the show tonight with your questions.

The recent killings in Paris at a satirical magazine and kosher market are the latest attacks on Western people and institutions by Islamic extremists. In this show, I look at the dwarf planet Eris as holding the key to understanding what’s going on with terrorism in the Middle East, drawing in large part from a book on Eris in progress. Last week was the 10th anniversary of Eris’s discovery, its entrance to the collective consciousness signaling a critical need to get to the bottom of the causes and relief of strife, discord, competition, and chaos.

The ongoing Pluto-Uranus squares activation of the Erises of most people alive on the planet tells part of the story, too, and I’ll cover this powerful, unavoidable activation of intense outer planets to the body in our charts related to being outcast, made fun of, and having our raw nerves, insecurities, and vulnerabilities exposed.

Full Moon in Cancer Tonight

Sunday, January 4th, 2015 | Astrology, Cancer, Capricorn, Compassionate Awareness, Lunations, Pluto, Vesta | Comments Off

cancerfm2014The Full Moon in Cancer is later tonight, opposing Pluto-Vesta with the Sun in Capricorn. Relax into a feeling state even if you’ve got a flag to wave. It’s the call to reconnect with how you feel even as you may perceive you’ve been fighting a war and can’t afford to stop. 
So, what do you feel? Do you think you can’t allow yourself to relax because no one else will carry on your cause? Do you think you’re in this life/your cause alone? 
Are you fixated on defending a principle at the cost of your ability to create peace, connection, and belonging? 
Are you willing to trust that you don’t have to fight? 
Are you willing to see that your attachment to your flag/cause might be keeping you from feeling loved – and loving?
Who said what matters to you has to be a war that you have to fight alone?
(FYI: Vesta adds importance to all it touches, and Pluto adds drama and passion/desire/fixation/obsession. Sun-Vesta-Pluto in Capricorn indicates the possibility of taking something way too seriously, defending a principle that others might not find as important as you find it (Vesta). With Vesta, we do something all the way or we refuse so that we don’t dishonor it and all of creation through doing it halfway. It adds a sense of what I call religiosity to what it touches.)
Oh, and there’s more: There’s no such thing as safety. The Capricorn struggle now (that the Sun is with Vesta-Pluto) can make it seem like certain things have to be done in order for you to feel safe. But there’s no such thing – I promise. Being secure in how you relate to and treat yourself – being aligned with your truth and honoring yourself – is the only thing that will really make you feel safe and secure. It’s time to learn that externally-projected tasks and doing will simply never get us feeling safe on the inside, yet when we create that emotional/spiritual security on the inside, the world around us organizes itself to reflect it – it becomes obviously, overtly true.
At the FM in Cancer, we need to relax into the moment and be with it – and be with whatever is needing to be felt and processed – but we also need to be clear that if something external now makes us feel safe, etc., then it’s a symbol of inner willingness. That state is never dependent upon or made real by external situations/others.

bill cosby hand gesture apIn the first part of the show, I discuss Bill Cosby’s chart in terms of recent allegations that he drugged and raped women over the course of many years. This is not assuming all allegations are true and passing judgment on him, but sharing how I analyze his chart from a karmic/evolutionary viewpoint given the themes of what he’s charged with.

Jimmy Savile in 1974

A new 78-minute free MP3 covers Jimmy Savile’s karmic journey to understand why he was wired the way he was: pedophile, sexual predator, necrophiliac.

Major astrological themes explored: Pluto retrograde, Pluto in Cancer, Pluto conjunct the North Node, Nessus, Eris in Aries, and Persephone. Special attention is given to transforming the victim-perpetrator paradigm that dominates human consciousness now.

To understand some of the darker aspects of human nature, we have to be willing to look at them and know that we’re strong enough to work through them. This MP3 is meant to teach about the astrology of these archetypes that Savile lived out and to provide insights into the journey that his soul – a portion of Divine consciousness – had him live out during his time on Earth.

15Nov13: Venus Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries

Thursday, November 14th, 2013 | Aries, Astrology, Capricorn, Pluto, Uranus, Venus | Comments Off

Exact tomorrow, 11/15, at 1:21 pm Pacific at 9 Capricorn 46 but the energy is in play and building now.

Pluto has been in square to Uranus in Aries and Venus now joins it. Check out that blog post linked and then add in some Venusian ideas. This can make the square come alive within relationships, what you feel is important, how you add and develop skills, and money/resources/possessions.

Ask yourself where in existing dynamics you feel trapped or in need of some new levels of fresh air. In the short term it may feel like a need to set something in stone or, at least, take some aspect of relationship, money, skills, etc., in the direction of more concreteness.

Pluto in this sign also asks us repeatedly to get clear on what’s running our lives. We may have the sense this week that we are empowered or disempowered (Pluto key words) through our relationship with money and possessions as well as through our relationships with others.

The square to Uranus brings pressure to set yourself free from existing stuff that doesn’t feel good. “Feel good” means those that don’t provide you with elbow room, a sense of having space to do what you need to do, and liven things up. It’s in Aries, a sign of new beginnings, and so there may be tension in your world and the world around you as many feel a growing sense of restlessness and a need to break free from what’s confining.

You should be finding yourself at minimum ill-at-ease with some existing dynamic that seems to require you to give up or surrender something you know is good or right for you. It’s about how strong you feel, actually. And if you don’t feel strong in the moment regarding a particular detail or thing, it’s about getting in touch with the inner rebel, revolutionary, and iconoclast. If you don’t do so, tension increases until it manifests in outward behavior we can classify as bitterness, resentment, and harsh criticism and perhaps unconscious-/reactive-type energy that seems to want to burn bridges and lay waste to the landscape.

If you need some alone time, take it. If you need to say something to someone but find it challenging, get grounded and do it. If you need to rework a relationship boundary or introduce a new one, do it. If you need to do something about your finances in order to feel more free or alive, do it.

The worst way to experience anything triggered by the Pluto-Uranus squares is to do nothing. It’s in fact a choice that leads to pent-up energy that will make things harder later for all involved. Take the opportunity to get more real, more authentic, more truthful, more direct, more open, and above all more willing to make changes. It’s the only way to deal with the tension that comes up that alleviates the tendency toward explosiveness and anger later.
