Transit Lab: Saturn Conjunct 2nd house Scorpio Sun and breaking rocks

Saturday, January 4th, 2014 | Astrology, Channeling, Crystals, Pluto, Saturn, Scorpio, Sun, Transit Lab | Comments Off

When Saturn comes calling by transit it’s time for some hard work. Often it involves hands-on work now that builds something for the future.

It passed over my 2nd-house Scorpio Sun a few weeks ago but I still feel the effects. Honestly, I expected some minor aches and pains because attention is supposed to be put on the physical body, often necessitating a slowing down in order to be open to hearing it. Right now I’m having minor stuff in each shoulder and how I’m compensating is affecting all of my upper body. But I know it will pass.

Another effect I expected was to need to do something challenging (Saturn) and gain a new skill or improve an old one (Scorpio in the 2nd house). It turns out that among other things this transit for me is about getting into lapidary arts.

Lapidary arts means working with gem stones – so for my Saturn transit to the Sun I’m learning to break rocks.

And make them pretty. › Continue reading

The trine between Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio have many feeling old emotions stirred up that need to be processed and released.

In this episode I’ll talk about emotions and how some being stirred are related to our sexual histories. I’ll also discuss some processes of our energetic fields when it comes to sexuality because these old emotions, even if not related to sex, affect our lower chakras and so come out in (or hinder) our sex lives.

Karmic Profile: Film Maker Wes Craven

Thursday, October 31st, 2013 | Astrology, Karma, Leo, Mars, Pluto, Saturn, Sexuality, Taurus, The Soul's Other Lives, Venus | Comments Off

It’s Halloween and I’m thinking about the pull that horror entertainment has for us. This morning I heard an interview including Wes Craven and decided to look up his chart.

And as usual the chart tells the story of both his interest in producing horror-based work as well as his earlier time in the pornography industry (it’s all Pluto stuff, after all). For the full story on how I analyze charts from an evolutionary/karmic perspective, read The Soul’s Journey trilogy of books.

craven2 August 1939, 4:54pm, Cleveland, OH (rated AA)

Pluto-Venus in early Leo at the end of the 7th house, Pluto in a wide conjunction with Sun in Leo in the 8th. But all three bodies are square the nodes, so Craven is in many lives trying to work out the right way to deal with his personal take and opinions on life’s intense and taboo topics.

Pluto in this configuration says that his soul over the course of many lives seeking to figure out how to be strong and confident through dealing with personal expression of unconscious and taboo issues. He needs to be heard and received by others (7th house and conjunct Venus). That the conjunction is square his nodes says that there are unresolved issues he needs to work out. It means that he naturally gets certain ways to do those energies but others might not occur to him or seem undesirable but could in fact offer routes to success. Often with squares to the nodes we do the same thing over and over again only to find the same non-productive results again and again.

The Pluto-Venus conjunction is opposed by retrograde Mars in Capricorn/1st, indicating that his empowerment journey over many lives can be/is blocked and made difficult or at times impossible by others’ force of will and decisive action. It could be that in some lives hard-edged and unyielding people stop him from making the taboo-inspired art he wants to create. It could also show up as well-meaning criticism that feels rough, and alternatively it can be violence that gets in the way of creating peace. In some lives it might feel that he cannot get away from violence of all kinds, including the kinds of senseless, murderous rage that he depicts onscreen. › Continue reading

tsjgraphicTonight on the show I’ll give you an inside look into Libra that many miss or never even consider. We think Libra is about being nice and getting along but it is in fact about the process of learning how to do that. There are some blind spots we all need to be aware of within relationships and assumptions we need to outgrow in order to get the other-people thing right.

I’ll also touch on the upcoming Autumnal Equinox and Pluto’s station in sextile to Venus-Saturn in Scorpio.

In the 2nd half of the show I’ll take caller questions so get your birth data ready and note the number: 877-230-3062 . The show will in a way be about relationships but your questions can be on any life topic.

On last night’s The Soul’s Journey I explored the basic meaning and challenge associated with each of the 4 midlife transits that define a window of time that has people ages 36-44 checking in with how life is going and, often, changing things to make it more meaningful and happy.

Special attention is given to the Pluto square, when transiting Pluto reaches a 90-degree aspect to a person’s natal Pluto. The person finds fears seeming to manifest or threaten to come true, making it a major life event that asks us to decide if we are going to survive our fears and thrive.

Also discussed are Neptune square Neptune, Uranus opposing Uranus, and Saturn opposing Saturn.

Subscribe to the podcast in iTunes here to hear the episode and gain understanding about what humans in midlife are experiencing with these transits.

Join me live each Wednesday at 7pm Pacific on CTR! Most weeks I take caller questions, giving you a chance to get my insights for 5 minutes or so on what’s going on in your life.

Other upcoming events:

Energy/Emotion Clearing Event
August 31, 2013 from 3-4:30 pm Pacific time. A live call during which I’ll channel Ascended Master Djehuty and go into a deep place to clear energies and emotions from you that you no longer need. The aim is to free you from old, stagnant energies and the input of others that you have absorbed so you can live the life you’re trying to live, not simply repeating the past.

Download “If You Were Born Today…” – making a moment into a signature of soul

Friday, May 24th, 2013 | Astrology, Karma, Pluto, Radio, Saturn, Scorpio, The Soul's Other Lives | Comments Off

tsjgraphicWe watch transits to know what’s coming down the pike collectively and in our own lives. On this show I spin a karmic yarn for an imaginary someone born May 23, 2013 at 6pm Pacific time in Tucson, AZ (the beginning of the show) and explain the multilife journey of a soul coming in at that moment.

I include an exploration of the 3rd Pluto-Uranus square, which was exact May 20, 2013, and the kinds of other-life situations in which a soul choosing that chart signature might find itself. While we are living through invitations and pressures for tumultuous change such a being would have many experiences over the course of many lives reflecting this dynamic. In other words our littlest ones have a ton of life experiences across the Earth time line doing exactly what we are trying to do. Some of their responses in various lives are triumphant and others are defeated – I give you a range of possibilities that you can translate into something useful for you given the pressures you’re under with this square.

The birth chart is a map in space-time of a soul’s journey. Hear the MP3 for this fascinating look at how a moment in time can come to represent the multilife journey of soul!

Karmic Profile: John Wayne Bobbitt

Today is Mr. Bobbitt’s birthday. While it’s been a long time since I did a karmic birthday profile like this, something told me to look at his chart.

bobbittA few things jumped out at me when I did and I’ll explore them below.

First, many people know who he is because of a particular domestic violence incident that saw his penis cut off by his wife and thrown into a field (it was recovered and surgically re-attached). As the back story was unfolded it became known that Mr. Bobbitt was an abusive husband and his wife at the time said she snapped after years of abuse. On the night in question he raped her after coming home drunk. Apparently this was not an uncommon kind of thing to happen in their household.

But I want to look at karmic indicators in the chart (Pluto, South Node (SN), and SN ruler) to get some info on where as a human he’s been in many lives. What, in other words, his soul has him trying to figure out during his human trips. See my books The Soul’s Journey I: Astrology, Reincarnation, and Karma with a Medium and Channel and The Soul’s Journey II: Emotional Archaeology to learn about my approach to karma and past lives in birth charts.

When I analyze charts I begin with Pluto as the marker of what the soul intends its humans figure out in order to be strong, confident, and powerful – these things from the soul’s vantage point being sourced in self-confidence and self-love. Bobbitt’s Pluto is in the 4th house, the house of family and emotion. In the sign of Virgo he is to eventually learn to approach family with responsibility and a sense of duty and service. But Uranus in Virgo is conjunct it, indicating that his journey involves trauma and sudden change. This will be through both emotions and the sense of being emotionally stable as well as family relationships themselves. › Continue reading
