Vampire Tarot

Q: Insight for all my readers…what evil lurks, what danger lies in the shadows of Mars/Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars/Pluto in Capricorn is men, Men, MEN as well as power, time, work and career and the power to work hard to achieve goals/climb your chosen mountain.
Note: both are square Uranus in Aries = radical shifts in perspectives – weird bolts from the blue and shocking insights.

Knight of Cups – A young man who appears poised, calm on the outside – but on the inside is intense, seething with determination.  Those who keep their secrets well guarded, are crafty and subtle.  Ruthless ambition, single-minded devotion to one goal, and one goal alone.

Judging by the image, the possibility of abandoning goals in favor of pan-like drunken/love debauchery also exists.  Too much of anything is still too much – be it sun or shadow.  Material earth-bound lesson via Jupiter.

This potent, purpose-driven person can generate mistrust, dislike and jealousy.  This can obviously be you or someone else but it is likely both.

Wagon: This Chariot carries the undead.  Incredibly apt for Mars/Pluto in Capricorn. This card is forward movement up the mountain to the fortress through forces that oppose you.
This chariot is also escaping internal forces which create opposition within yourself.

Protecting life and death and love in the midst of forces that are often out of our control.  Or are they…?…not if you believe in Karma aka Saturn (rules Capricorn).
Self-control and restriction forced to the breaking point.  This also indicates home turf/ground which Dracula would take with him to ease his symptoms.

Metamorphosis and change factors heavily, as well as night hours and what happens to your energy with the cycles of the Sun/Moon.  Note also Dracula was a animagus who could spy undetected by hiding in another form.  Who is the spy ?  You or another ?  Again, likely both.

This card can represent an unexpected package, visitor – likely a man or something work or energy related.

The star is from the Magpie Oracle, created by Carrie Paris.
Even for the undead there remains a glimmer of hope.

Richard Armitage3Richard Armitage

I love watching Richard chew Middle Earth scenery – a commanding, Kingly presence indeed – authoritative voice, confident swagger that is Leo incarnate. 

Richard is a late degree Leo Sun conjunct Venus (within a degree).  Sun in the sign it rules, tightly conjunct Venus is creatively beneficial – attracting those who stand apart, are willpowered, fun and expressive.  Leo Sun/Venus is an affectionate combo, very generous, eager to play and have fun, but also demands its due – in respect as well as love. 

Courageous Leo loves camaraderie, happily shares the wealth of spirit inherent to house of Sun; Virgo Moon is more reticent to take the spotlight, preferring to work quietly, diligently on the craft.  Moon in Virgo needs intellectual feeding to feel emotionally satisfied, further highlighted by Mercury in house.

Mental gymnastics feed the creative prowess, leading to focused self-expression.  Practicality meets perfectionism, versatility bred by sensing sacred patterns, making connections.  Clever emotional weaving of worlds holds court, thoughts pave the road to success, solving the restless tension via Mercury (tightest focal, see below) is key.

Richard Armitage2

Sun/Venus Leo is very giving/heartfelt, full of hope.  If they do not receive in kind, they are forgiving, but their pride takes a hit and their light dims. (Sun rules Leo.)  I mention this as Richard has a rolling (out of sign) stellium with Venus/Sun/Mercury collectively serving as joint focal points in a T-Square.

Squares indicate personal metamorphosis, internal obstacles leading to massive growth.  T-Square focal points are a funnel for expression.  See Bruce Lee.

Richard’s Venus/Sun/Mercury are rolling focals square both Saturn and Jupiter/Neptune indicating intense focus on art, work, diplomacy and life philosophies.  Think/see/learn/desire/analyze are all getting the workout – squares keep the road hot because we want to scratch the itch of friction.

Communicating depth perception (Saturn/restriction) breathes full flexibility into the house of Gemini, which craves nuance and information exchange.  Expression is crucial to breaking he crystallizations of Saturn – house Gemini loves change while Saturn does not – best bet is to find the balance and work it.

Leo Venus in exact square to Scorpio Neptune indicates high qi awareness/creativity when channeled correctly, low qi delusion/obsession when living in shadow.  Hard aspects between Venus and Neptune are the hallmark of a creative, sensitive soul – octaves of artistic expression working together.  Late Leo Sun conjunct Venus further highlights this strength.

Richard Armitage

Also of note is the similarity/individual nuances between Richard and Martin Freeman (Bilbo) who were both born in the UK within a month of each other.  Their charts are similar (esp. the outer planets) but the inner planets determine personal expression, hence only a wide similarity. House placements will also determine much that I am unable to tell without the exact time of birth.  I am have done a solar chart (Noon) for both men.  If you would like to compare, Martin’s chart interp is here.

Similarities include Mars conjunct North Node in trine to Uranus, and a Grand Air Trine (communication) but Richard has a much tighter conjunction between Mars and North Node of Destiny by less than a degree.  Uranus trine Saturn trine Mars/NNode circulates social/generational stream of consciousness  ideas – while driving action to change.

Richard has Mars quintile (gifts, talents) Neptune indicating a love of music, film, as well as plenty of peace and quiet to let the mind wander and relax.  Hiking and getting right with nature is a great work/stress reducer.

Now for seeing Thorin in his chart. 
Hello, the Leo has landed. 

Leo is royalty; Saturn is lineage – ancestry through the Father aka Capricorn/Saturn.
Fits the Thorin II Oakenshield bill.
(Son of Thrain II, grandson of King Thor.)
No great love of elves via Saturn opposing Neptune – King Thranduil did not assist the dwarves when Smaug took over Erebor, their lonely mountain home.

Sun conjunct Venus in late Leo ?
Leo loves the shiny gold bling (Leo rules gold) – mountains of it. (Saturn)
Just saying’.

Question: What would animals of the world like to tell humans so that we may collectively move into our highest most benevolent outcome ?

Answer: Time to make decisions & choose priorities.  New challenges means developing new tools, ways of thinking that suit the new sitch.

Bows wear out, arrows warp over time changing their accuracy.
They are no longer true.
Note Leo Jupiter T-Square focal point with Taurus Full Moon – Sun opposition.

Have faith in the next step – shared power & respect for all life.

Whisperings in the Wood

FullSizeRender 13Dark Goddess Tarot

Full Moon incoming in Taurus opposing Venus/Sun.
This card popped up when I asked what the Goddess (Venus) would have us know that we cannot see.  I asked for a card to enlighten us all.

Baba Yaga IX (Hermit)
Russian Witch of the Wood

Baba yaga has boney legs, iron teeth, a large distinctive nose and a house that follows her wherever she goes.
Sounds very Moonish/Cancerish yes ?  A shell of golden mean insights await us with this lunation, dive into the well of Venusian navel gazing.  (Venus rules the navel.)

As the Uranus Pluto square increases we are indeed called to re-examine bonds and contracts we make/made with others and also ourselves.  Wise council is indicated – be with your own power – the knowledge and wisdom that is your path alone.

Distractions and challenges are full of rewards for experience brings wisdom.
Trust your own momentum, Saturn need not bring stagnation but instead count on focus and determination.

Virtue, honesty and integrity are forest wild, the pure laws of Mother Nature rule here.  She is the wisest old crone of them all.

Follow your hearts intuition over authoritative dictates.
Show respect to the ancients (storm/mountains/stream/fire) and they will assist you in your journey.  Offerings to trees and wood are beneficial at this time.  Listen to the wind whispering through the trees…you will find your answer there.

Primeval Creatives

Two questions today in regards to Mars conjunct Pluto both (calendar here) square Uranus as we move into a Full Taurus Moon and the 6th of 7 hits of Uranus square Pluto.

1: Stuck place
2: Giving Place

1: Insight (above) Introspection – Depth of Study and Vision 
We have plenty of Scorpio (Sun, Venus, Saturn) all set to reboot the system. Pluto (rules Scorpio) transforms from the inside out – add this to Jupiter square Saturn for focused creative insight.
Navel gazing coupled with knowing/gnawing your way through intensive work is the primo vibe at the moment.  Moon is in Aries until afternoon Wednesday (USA)  working actually feels very, very good.  Satisfying even.

FullSizeRender 12Book of Doors

2: AAH: Family of the Moon: Khnemu: To Build, to Unite
Khnemu is a water god associated with the source of the Nile in Elephantine.  He was known to guard the flood gates each year, the rising floods meant the rising of Sirius.

Khnemu is also known for creating the universe alongside Ptah, and is often pictured at a potter’s wheel.  Ptah created the earth and heavens while Khnemu created humans, animals and other living beings.  He created the gods and is called “the builder of men, the maker of gods and the Father who was the Beginning’.

In the card he is pictured with the crown of the South, two feathers, two uraei (sacred serpent) and a solar disk with ram’s heads, his most ancient symbol.  Four ram’s heads face the four directions, symbolize the four elements of creation. 

He was worshipped as the ram of Mendes – the virile male, the holy phallus which stirs up passions of love.  Ram’s horns obviously indicate Aries (Mars) and the springtime rush of energies projected outward.  In this way, Khnemu exists in all things, as the soul of the artist is in the sculpture and the soul of the potter in the pot.  This is the great primeval creative force.

The Giving Place rises in the powerful creative energies surging with this aspect.  Channelled wisely it is divine self-expression and successful execution of plans.
I mentioned Jupiter square Saturn for focus – also keep in mind Jupiter is loosely trine Uranus (7 degrees) which bestows great ingenuity.
Be cautious, but also clever.

Hoopy Frood Hobbit

martin-freemanMartin Freeman

There was a flurry of texting with my former husband when The Hobbit casting was announced.  I was rattling off the return of Ian, Andy, Orli and even Elijah, who is being written in !  Then he asked Who’s Bilbo ?  I was rambling about rumored talks with James McAvoy when the news hit.  In bubbly geekspeak excitement all I could pop out was Dent. Arthur Dent !  YaY !  Excellent choice ! 

Martin is a Virgo Sun conjunct Venus which is beneficial twice over, though less so when Venus is in its fall (opposite its exaltation) working harder/born into compromise.  Both benefics squaring Saturn in Gemini indicate a sharp mind/tongue/wit learned through restraint and obstacles of both the mind and communication.  It is a placement of learning focused self-expression/discipline re: love, money, balance and diplomacy.

Mars conjunct North Node of Destiny in Aquarius is the powerful knowing of an intellectual innovator that acts/reacts* (Mars/Mercury, respectively) fully on instinct.
Martin has a Grand Air Trine with Mars/NNode, Uranus in Libra and Saturn in Gemini.

Uranus/Saturn/Mars NNode circulates social/generational stream of consciousness  ideas – while driving action to change.  Keep the best and fuck the rest kind of thinking.
Saturn loves traditional think – boho Uranus in Libra upsets the popular balance, while Mars in Aquarius does the unexpected by harmonizing both via change. 


Leo Mercury is focal point of a T-Square * between Saturn in Gemini opposite Scorpio Jupiter conjunct Neptune (out of sign; 29 and 0 degrees respectively) in Sagittarius.  Clever, creative ideas are prolific, though the expression/execution may be slow to manifest recognition.

Benefic 29 degree Scorpio Jupiter is luck high when death is nigh.  Particularly when it sextiles 29 degree Virgo Pluto which is in good aspect to Saturn.  Transformative communications are the crucible to regenerative relationships, especially regarding work.
Note 29 Scorpio Jupiter/0 Sagittarius Neptune conjunction (death luck/suffering via travels; respectively) sextile 29 Virgo Pluto alludes to Bilbo’s chance of protection from the evils of the Ring of Power.  Culmination degrees are saturated with the vibration of that planet/sign.

Bilbo out riddles the Sphinx (asteroid 896) of Middle Earth – by facing challenges, guarding life, keeping secrets and using timely revelations.  Riddles are ruled by Pluto/Neptune and imho Mercury.  Martin’s focal Leo Mercury cleverly navigates a path through trick questions in order to escape from the cave (Saturn) alive.

Martin also has spiritual gifts ala Venus and Mars: both quintile Jupiter and Neptune; Venus from Earth, Mars from Air.  Specialized talents are present with all, but the finest expression is Mars Fire on Aquarius Air with North Node of Destiny.  The elements are compatible and will operate smoothly. Venus attracts while Mars is outgoing, both in quintile to a tight Jupiter/Neptune conjunction indicates artistic inclination, a talent for giving/receiving unusual communications, particularly on film (Neptune).

Asteroid Bilbo is 2991.  Currently at 8 Sagittarius.
Bilbo was discovered in a sky of 6 retrogrades: Mars on out to Pluto – all in inward (yin) revision mode.  Bilbo was tightly conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio both opposite Taurus Sun and Mercury indicating slow going peace talks re: personal and shared possessions.
Venus was in Pisces (exalted) quincunx Saturn in Libra.  Interesting as the quincunx deals with both health and change of character – altitude adjustments.  Consider the ring (Venus is jewelry) of power that did indeed prolong life, but at a cost of Bilbo’s mental health.
FYI: Martin has Bilbo at 27 Libra which may be opposite his moon which is either late Aries or early Taurus, but I don’t have his time of birth, so I cannot say.

Asteria goddess of the stars Emily Blaivet

Asteria (asteroid 658) the starry one is the Titan goddess of prophecy and astrology.  Her placement in the natal chart indicates ways and means of reading and divining by the stars.  She is currently at 0 degrees Libra. 

Finding our path to understanding, as I said in my last (full moon) post, is the crux of incredible growth.  Hence, Jupiter/Sagittarius/9th house rulership.

What is found elevated in the natal chart is near high noon (10th house/Midheaven) aka public, visible – what is placed in the 9th, is particularly expansive.  Likewise for the house where Jupiter resides as well as aspects Jupiter makes to other planets/points.  Here we find exploration and infinite growth potential.

That said, I see my past lives (Sagittarius 12th) in my own natal chart. In addition, several psychics have told me that I have previously burned at the stake for being a witch.  Considering what I am doing now, that is not at all surprising, now is it ?

How Witches on TV spell Trouble in Real Life.

There’s something about witches, it seems, that’s as compelling to us today as it was to the Puritans. But while the 1692 trials were a terrifying and tragic reality show, it’s easy to dismiss the modern fantasy of witchcraft as mere silliness. Not so fast, scholars say: When witchcraft makes a comeback, it’s often a sign of trouble in the real world. Stories of witches cast a captivating spell that both challenges and comforts us in those times — such as now.

Witches, like terrorists, “threaten to wipe out everything you believe in. If they could, they would overthrow your government, overturn your faith, and destroy your society,” Baker writes.

Equating witches with terrorists ?
siriuslySensationalism at its best, thank you ever so much.
Terrorism is a red flag word choice, overused ad nauseum to incite fear and panic.
The herd is getting spooked because they should be.  A few power hungry elite are crushing the options of the many.
Scapegoating is not only entirely misguided, but also in very poor taste. 
Please do your homework.

Student/Teaching/Writing 101

1. Define Parameters.
That’s the first roadblock.  What witch means to any number of people is likely as broad an answer as the number of people questioned. 
Blanket terminology, please meet personal nuance.

2.  Know what you are talking about.
See 1.  First learn the basics – expand from that point. Explore outside your own navel, ask questions and honor paths that differ from your own.

3.  Get off the high horse.
No one person knows everything.  Allowing unlimited space for learning, growth and understanding is the true hallmark of intelligence.

Perhaps the real trouble is witches (your term) choose to understand personal and shared power within our universe.  Personal responsibility and karmic repercussions are widely understood.  They do their own thinking, see the big picture and walk their talk.

People who will not take the bit of propaganda are as a rule, feared because they are not easily swayed by those in power.  They SEE the spin for what it is.  Your truth is not necessarily their truth and they know it.

Knowledge is power that leads to understanding.
If that is destroying society, then we need a new society.

Witches Fire Back.

Saturn Around the Wheel

giphy-3I am in the middle of having a hard Saturn transit from natal Neptune to my Venus/Jupiter in Leo.  Fun times !  Heh. yeah right.  Mmm..not so much.

Saturn is many great things including: focus, tact, discipline, conservation and good old-fashioned hard work when operating high qi and/or in good aspect.

Saturn is many not so great things including: restraint, obstruction, slowing, stiffening or hardening, (yes I know what you are thinking !) karma, sorrow and pessimism – particularly when operating low qi and/or in hard aspect.
Capricorn and Saturn rule the bones and bone structure.
Right now my lower back – yeow !  Neck is not so great either.
With that in mind, I bring you Saturn around the wheel.

Listing “hard aspects” seems a bit misleading/ironic because Saturn IS hard, also keep in mind rulers of these signs when interpreting.
Hard aspects: conjunctions, squares and oppositions

Saturn in hard aspect to these planets may indicate pain in these areas.
I can testify to Aries, I am a Capricorn rising with Saturn Rx in Aries and I always carry pain relief for constant headaches.

Aries – head
Taurus – neck, throat, ears
Gemini – hands, lungs, nervous system *1
Cancer – breast, stomach, yoni
Leo – heart, lower back
Virgo – solar plexus, bowels
Libra – kidneys, ovaries
Scorpio – excretory system *2
Sagittarius – things, legs
Capricorn – bones, knees
Aquarius – ankles
Pisces – feet

*1 – Do not smoke with this placement !
*2 – Literally a pain in the ass.
Quick post/lunch.

jennifer-jason-leighJennifer Jason-Leigh

Incredible actress.
I watched eXsistenZ again recently after gamergate exploded.  I love that dark little gem, and who can ever forget her scenes in Shortcuts ?  I won’t ruin it for you if you haven’t seen it (click the link) but it is NSFW and it’s Altman, so plan on 3 hours.

Jennifer was absolutely fantastic as Dorothy Parker and she doesn’t shy away from playing really intense screwed up people, see Bastard Out of Carolina, The Anniversary Party for starters.
Something made me think of her last night and I thought she probably has a very interesting chart, she is so riveting onscreen.  Was I ever right !
Jennifer has one of those natal charts that amaze, like Bruce Lee and Nostradamus.

Jennifer Jason Leigh natalWe have an incredible amount of intellectual Aquarius happening !
Soaring idealism, craving for fresh experiences, communicating extraordinary socially conscious visionary realms – all shown in her packed 9th house of philosophies.  Very passionate thinker/communicator who teaches through film.  Amazing.  Now I see how/why she nailed Dorothy Parker so brilliantly.

Venus bang on Jupiter and Mars bang on Saturn in addition to Aquarius Moon conjunct MC opposite Uranus conjunct IC is mesmerizing.  Moon at MC is in the public eye for work, Uranus at culmination degree of Leo at IC leads a private life, but for the screen she will rise brilliantly to the occasion.  Conjunctions are power operating, and Venus on Jupiter is sexy, but eccentric in Aquarius – the intellectual needs fed first.  Mars on Saturn (with the former conjunction in mind) is the macho femme fatale – the tough girl, smart and sassy, works hard/plays hard.

Gemini rising with Mercury (ruler) combust Sun in that powerful stellium with Moon elevated is tricky – at once flirty and nimble but also very strong-willed, focused in purpose and aspirations.  Leo North Node opposite Venus/Jupiter delivers immediate awareness of the art form, a hold-over from the past, an innate knowing boosted by a plethora of Aquarius.  Aquarian motto: I know.

She seems drawn to uncovering the raw humanity inside us all, urging us to see what we don’t want to see.  We have to look at it, know it, in order to change it.  This is a product of Chiron, the wounded healer, elevated in Pisces 10.  Using the work to heal.

Not a bit surprised by bitch goddess Lilith conjunct Pluto, either.  Lilith, she who would not be tamed or an any way subservient to man or god.  She is of course sextile Neptune (aka film) which is in hard aspect to Jennifer’s entire Aquarius stellium by transference of light.  Here lies the friction which has driven her success.  Scorpios and Aquarians are amazingly resilient for fixed signs.
