Been awhile, hello. Occurs to me in the quiet dark that one thing in this sea of changes is for sure… some things don’t ever change and you could set your watch by my posts of this mournful song and some heavy af Saturn transit. May it bring you the relief it does me.
Chris Cornell died (police report suicide by hanging, his family disputes this) after his recent Detroit show on Wednesday at the young age of 52.
Incredibly talented man with an unforgettable voice.
Huge Syd Barrett fan too.
Syd is my (primary) patron, so it occurred to me he might have been around to help Chris with his transition, so I asked him.
What follows is a series of Q&A using various card methods – the draw and answer follow the questions. Lastly, I of course, tackle the astrology.
? Syd, have you checked in on him yet ?
No, he had a troubled passing … but you’re gonna ask me to aren’t you ?
Syd: Ok, I’ll check in on him.
Me: Thanks, love. x
? Chris what was going through your mind the night you died ?
1 Eligor: (Venus) conflict/warfare and strategy; rise or find someone who can
2 Orias: (Moon) inspiration/Hermes, thoughts beyond logic, instinctual responses
3 Bifrons: (Mars) new chapter/transformation, death
Seems he was at war with himself, felt he had no way out than to go higher.
? Chris, now that you are on the other side, what say you ?
Be wary of quick decisions that lead you into the cave of the unknown, rather be generous when judging yourself, disappointment will pass. Turn your creative eye towards those who love you and seek emotional adaptation and wise counsel to assist you as you conquer your demons.
Syd, do you have any parting thoughts ..?
Thanks for hooking me up with your (our) friend, I told him you send him your love. Share this caution to the spooked herd. Rise above the pain and drama and know that his energy remains, infinitely enfolding. Though he lost this challenge, he will, in time, rise again with strength to face the next.
Natch, I also checked the astro.
Chris has an unaspected Cancer Sun (Moon rules Cancer, fluctuates) which was under a progressed Mars transit (conjunct). This is a call to courage, strength and willpower – a need to release tension properly lest a risky gamble backfire in the heat of the moment.
Unaspected Cancer Sun often has deep feelings that may go unexpressed due to feeling alone and singular in expression. Releasing pressure for an unaspected Sun is more difficult when it doesn’t ‘relate’ to other planets in the natal.
Progressed Virgo Mercury Rx was opposite his natal Saturn Rx in Pisces, which can indicate mental stress, fatigue, and a resultant overmedication. Thoughts become jumbled in the face of reality. Work issues may seem insurmountable or insecurities may begin to run the whole the show.
In addition, not only was transiting Mars conjunct his natal Venus/Mars conjunction in the mental sign of Gemini which points to heightened anxiety, but also transiting Uranus the eccentric was square his natal Sun. Chris took Ativan to combat this anxiety which is a part of his natal signature. (So do I.) It is reported he grew confused after taking too much which led to his death.
Rest In Peace, Chris
You will be missed by so, so many.
Oh…and when you get a chance, please tell Syd I love him. Thanks love x

Mars conjunct Uranus drives the wheels of change and innovation into ultra radical high gear. High octane blast offs behind the wizard of weird manifests in remarkable originality and free thinking backed by tremendous passion.
Unpredictable outbound energy is the hallmark of this aspect.
Mars conjunct Uranus is wildly courageous, bold and headstrong – contrary even. This team is leading the way come hell or high water, they will not be stopped, corralled or worse yet – managed.
Fiercely independent, they are extreme in whatever they choose to throw their energies into, no one will convince them otherwise. Forward actions & fixed mindsets are all over the shop.
Willpower, thought processes aka altitude attunement is of utmost importance, for getting the head straight prior makes all the difference in how the game is played. Mars conjunct Uranus has incredible wild instincts and KNOWS how to react to social situations no matter how odd the crisis or sitch. They jump right in without thinking, this is an aspect of action/reaction for better/worse.
This combo points directly to humanitarian interests, they are often spoiling for a good cause/fight to rally behind. These intelligent reformers are audacious and ardent with the ability to view life with a detached objectivity, making them very perceptive champions in a pinch.
Mars conjunct Uranus signals a strong-willed, domineering competitor who is not only intuitive, inventive and clever but also packed with stamina for the long haul. They are rebellious, resourceful and highly focused.
Full Virgo Moon
Rune made by my hands from an oak on my property.
Fond of Acorns, Oaks, Druids and asteroids ?
Read Draw the Stroke.
Today’s quick pull is to shed light on the hidden aspects between this full Virgo Moon and the incoming Solar Eclipse at 29 Pisces here.
I have particular interest (my Sun is opposite at 29 Virgo) but this question is for everyone. I chose to shine a light around the corner into what we cannot see but need to between these aspects.
The World: Fulfillment, completion and dancing for joy because of it !
This I find so interesting…because our lives go ever on and on, the learning continues and space opens up with each generation. Pisces knows no boundaries, nor Virgo if they nitpick projects to death.
Completion is relative.
To be precise: we have completed one phase of many.
So much we do not know – SO MUCH !
Yesterday, a fossil was found in Ethiopia which pushes the arrival of Homo on the East African landscape back almost half a million years, to 2.8 million years ago.
Even at that, the human lifespan is just a blip on the timeline of Earth and even less so in regards to Precession of the Equinoxes. < Watch, stunning.
An elk, a shield – protection.
This rune symbolizes a connection to the Gods, an Awakening.
Call on yours if you need to.
Follow your instincts and channel energy into crafting your shield.
Whatever that means to you.
Elk is incredibly personally relevant to me WoW, soOo many dreams including one last night. See Virgo Full Moon post.
Solar Eclipse 29 Pisces
Hi qi manifestation of this eclipse highlights the unseen, sneaking and strategy. Pisces Sun conjunct Moon Solar Eclipse in the last degree (29) of the last sign of the zodiac (Pisces) is stealth in the twelfth without a doubt.
Caution is advised, an oblique approach to any and all difficulties is better received than full frontal guns blazing.
This Quantum card reveals different forms of radiation, aka atomic nuclei that are unstable and release particles spontaneously. All forms of radiation are silent/invisible though they do not operate the same.
Alpha can be blocked by a sheet of paper.
Beta can be blocked by aluminum.
Gamma is very high energy/powerful can only be blocked by lead.
This card signals scheming and penetration, the indirect approach. Many situations will be sneaking up on us – calmly calculate and consider all circumstances flowing inward & outward.
We spy but are also spied upon.
Carefully contemplate boundaries – those you set & those you break. Where are you permeable, where are you rock solid…? Know your deal breakers.
Treat others as you would like to be treated & treat yourself well while you are at it. Management of the mischievous Pisces savior/martyr complex is a must.
This is the culmination degree of an intuitive, compassionate, sign.
Healing comes home.
How healthy is your (Earth’s) body of water ?
What we create we live with: energy, thoughts, feelings and vast amounts of miscellaneous material goods. Eg. There is no such thing as throwing trash away.
Hidden means hidden – not gone or away. Garbage (energy) ends up in a landfill, (in someone else’s face) quite a bit of it is sadly floating in the Pacific.
Transmutation of Use is the Key.
Consider this – personally, globally.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 14 Libra
High qi energy card highlights exalted Aries Sun conjunct Uranus in opposition to Moon in Libra both square Pluto at 15 Capricorn.
Polarities walk hand in hand with reversals of fortune/perspective shifts via work- trine Jupiter Rx we have sublime grace, hope riding shotgun.
Sun delivers rationality, clarity and new constructions of consciousness and creativity. Humanitarian ideals and kinships with like minds/hearts are strong, magnetic, harmonious.
Energy boosts and bountiful blessings.
peace & love
