Chris Cornell Singles

Chris Cornell, Soundgarden as seen in Singles

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 ?
Me: yep.
Syd: Ok, I’ll check in on him.
Me: Thanks, love. x

Chris Cornell Syd

? 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.

Chris Cornell Other Side

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

I got off early yesterday, took a nap that turned into 7 + hours. 
Ummm okay. whoa.

Welcome to transit Neptune square natal Mars, (Mars Rx 10) + total energy drain.

While comparing this sluggish transit with my progressed Moon/Mars conjunct in Capricorn transit (when I happily worked constantly for weeks on 4 hours sleep/night), it occurred to me that if we pay close attention to our progressions, transits and the energies we experience that accompany them, we as a collective could eradicate hatred due to personal differences very quickly.

Origami deamonOrigami daemon

Hence, the maskswe try on many energies while we are living here on earth.
I was quizzical during my workaholic phase (helped me better understand my boss) and I am rather resigned to accepting (understanding chronic fatigue) this lack of energy as signaling a time to be introspective and reintegrate/balance my sub/conscious drives, actions/desires.

We are each born to a static natal chart, but with every second that passes, energies shift meaning we change.   The planetary movements do not cause change, they simply reflect energy shifts occurring in us on a larger scale.

Everything is connected, related – we are ALL ONE – yet experiencing a different facet of the crystal prism of life.  We careen/balance – if we are aware, we also LEARN.

The luminary vibrations aka Sun/Moon are called The Lights – Sun is conscious; Moon the reflective subconscious.  Each planet has a vibration which is expressed individually (static natal); felt personally (how it is filtered geometrically via natal as planet moves), and experienced globally by all as planets transit each sign.

I think visually, so I picture current transits like a murmuration – we are all shifting energies in the same signs.
The shifts in our respective houses and planetary placements in them – I equate to individual wing adjustments that accommodate the murmuration en masse.

All this brings me to the upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra in mid-April.
Balance, relationships, love, money & equality – all pistons are firing for relationship growth, change, and personal metamorphosis.

Eclipses are often felt weeks prior to the actual event, they occur in cycles and reverberate across our entire lives.
Pretty intense, huh ?  Just the way I like it.  heheh….

This lunar eclipse is with North Node – winds of change will alter many a course towards a more balanced, just, harmonious, diplomatic destiny.
Placing bets that someone says something strangely synchronous that blows your mind/shifts your emotional perspective – alters your course to a higher vibration.

Eclipse energies
are always speed freaks, CHANGE NOW ! 
Eclipse in tandem with the incoming Cardinal Cross, indicates energies are even more action-adventure driven.  This is true globally, as well as individually.

Fresh starts are imminent – this is CARDINAL energy.

Pinpointing ponderations….

WHO are you ?
How do you FEEL ?
How well are you USING your gifts ?
What goals do you need to RE-EVALUATE ?
Where do you REFINE your direction ?

Are you taking care of YOURSELF ?
Do you play well with OTHERS ?

…more eclipse soon…

Seems I won’t ever tire of strange feet pics/posts, eh ?  Weird foot pics is de rigueur, Aqua on Venus ruled 2nd, Venus square Neptuner in 11th.  My tastes in art runs the gamut from the sublime to the ridiculous.

I have been working more at my day job, wacky hours, less posting and now my lingering foot issue has worsened.  Neptune rules feet; Aquarius, ankles.

I am having an issue with my right ankle and it shows in my transits:
T. Saturn on biggie Neptuner in Scorp 11
T Neptuner square natal Mars in Sag. T.
Uranus direct applying square to Prog Mars in Capricorn in 11.
Prog Moon in Aqu square Mercury in Scorp.

Here is where it gets frustrating – Neptune loves to play hide and seek.

Neptuner in hard aspect is a test between delusion, illusion – – healing, transcending via healing arts.  Health wise, Neptooney makes misdiagnoses and hard to pinpoint symptoms/cures very likely.  (I have already had weird migrating foot pains this year – very odd – I reiki, they wander.) 

My natal Neptune is under (hard) square (in fixed signs) indicating not only stress, but also that I am facing something I avoided in a past life.  I know there is much I am still processing from this life as well. 

Psychosomatic: emotional and mental stress manifesting in the body.
In every chart, there is always a way out of difficulty, both in the natal and by transit.

In my natal I have plenty of Plutonic energy to shapeshift.
Currently T. Uranus is trine my natal Mars in Sagittarius by the backdoor.

I am off to do some shamanic work, rogue reiki, sound healing, etc….

If I am not posting as much, you know why. 
I am off to sculpt my emotional, mental, physical, spiritual healing across all dimensions of space and time via Plutonic energy.

Look to Scorpio & Pluto in your natal for where you can shift your metamorphosis into high gear. 


Doctor, Doctor

Brilliant !” My favorite Doctor, perfect 10, David.

“Bodies are boring, I’ve had loads of them.”  11th, Matt

Imagine that – Doctor Who has a 6th house Sagittarius Stellium  !

This does not surprise me in the least. King of Wands all over. Did you see my recent Aces High Draw in twitfeed ?  haha Kismet !  All 4 Aces culminating in King of Wands – groovy !  This stellium configuration tickles me to regeneration, because I have a Virgo stellium on the 9th of Sag; Doc has a Sag stellium on the 6th of Virgo.
heeheeYaY !
Geronimo !

Fresh as a daisy 0 degree Sagittarius Sun with Sag Mercury, Mars, Venus up for going on tour at the drop of a fez, Aquarius Moon for a bit of eccentric zip.  Gemini Rising for gift of gab, versatility, thinking on your feet – also being a cheeky flirty birdy !

Saturn (TIME, and the loner) smack on eccentric Aquarius (genius) MC aka Midheaven (peak of achievements, bulbs flashing), in the 9th house of boho travel.  Moon-ruled North Node in Cancer on 11 degrees – same as Mercury in Sag.  Remember how Martha spread the word, defeated The Master – how apt !

Sag Mars squares TARDIS <~(click for biggie asteroid TARDIS post) in 11th house Pisces exact at 21 degrees, a stolen time space machine with a mind of her own – spins The Doctor sideways to what she AIMS him to SEE, hands him plenty of surprises and off track destinations !  Sun and Mercury trine Aries Jupiter (Doctor Jupes is smack on my natal Saturn ::GRIN:: )  Means two benefics spreading courageous goodwill and good vibes of 6th house healing (plus, Chiron in Pisces 10) to all beings of the time multiverses.

Doctor Who’s rambling conjunction of Mercury, Venus and Mars squares Virgo Uranus/Pluto in the 4th, though he doesn’t live on Earth, he feels a responsibility to protect her and will become enraged if she or her life is threatened.  This is also true for other worlds – he is The Coming Storm.  He is a fierce and mighty protector of those who are underlings (Virgo, 6th house) without power.

Tenth house Aquarius Moon quintile Sag Mercury is most definitely getting out of tight spots by your wits and USING what you KNOW, have LEARNED over time and eons of experience.  Scorp Neptune square Aquarius Moon and Saturn – haha the phrase timey whimey comes to mind !  In this case among other things, a penetrating mind keen for research, travel, the unusual, built for shake-ups in career aka: being his own boss, rather than a long-term partnership in a rut in one spot.

Pisces Chiron trines North Node and Neptune forming a Grand Water Trine of healing, feeling and reeling the companions in (co-workers are 6th house) for the same common goals of delving deep into the mysterious cosmos, helping others.

Now for some fun transits and progs: 

Chiron return ! 
Learning the meaning of the wounded healer by review of past accomplishments/work, seeing/feeling the deep wound of the life/work – tweaking the sitch and heading back out into the fray to go another round of healing/leaning/philosophizing getting it better and brighter.  Chiron also trines North Node, leading the way with the public (Moon) showing how we can move into OUR FUTURE with tolerance and understanding, peace with all life forms.  Brilliant !

Transit Cancer Jupiter Rx trine natal TARDIS in Pisces 10; opposite transit Venus and TARDIS in Cap 8 – the traveler looks back (Rx) into Time and Relative Dimension in Space – feels the impact made with the people, the public, the collective cosmos, how is the balance – is the transformation good for you too !?.

Cap on the 8th, ruler Saturn on MC lovin’ that !
The Doctor doesn’t die, he regenerates. 
hee getting all tingly just thinkin’ ’bout it !

Also, Venus transit Cap is the passage of time, great hurdles overcome and the bonds of love across time and of course, space.  Progressed Mercury, Sun and Mars all in Cap on 6th – spotlight on the work over TIME, the change in perspectives are lovingly crisp, intense, and talked about as Venus, TARDIS and Pluto transit this house.

Oh come on, what’s your fave (Venus) episode, your fave Doctor ?
I have so MANY it is hard to choose !  Silence in the Library

Progressed TARDIS lands on the Zero degrees Aries Point, indicating a huge rush of outward energies – YES !  Progressed MC lands in Aries which is such an I AM, identity, how I pioneer the world in my fashion gig – with Leo rising in progressed the spotlight is on the craft of self  – the spirit of the Doctor in all his incarnations, all episodes, all are distinct and memorable – in their own way they each own the role. 

Last one – progressed Venus is on natal Moon a charge and kick it up a notch love attraction from both women and yes, the public at large – doubly so since natal Moon lands in the 10th at MC.  Love the TIME LORDS, yes we do !

Happy 50th Anniversary Doctor
Many, many more regenerations . . .


fly by

110105intx5cyThough I have a great internal compass and sense of direction – I have a love of maps. (Mercury rules, is my MC planet)  Astrology is made of maps, and not only the natal map, but also what happens as the big wheel turns.

The sky when we were born kept right on moving and soon tossed us into another set of circumstances such as the first Mars return (every 2-21/2 years) around what is known as the terrible twos.

When my progressed Moon (feels) and Mars (action) were pulling the plow together in Capricorn (career, work, public) – I was filled with focused energy, I was seriously DRIVEN and THRIVING on WORK, writing, java, more work and maybe 4 hours sleep a night, and doing it well.  Friends were across the globe were saying  I can’t believe the hours I find you online up and writing.

Note: for those of you who think I am a little  O u t   T h e r e. . . my progressed Moon is zapping into Aqua soon, so I may go around fully around the bend at that time . . . we’ll see… HA !
Fair warning.


Outer planets move so slowly, they rarely progress into the next sign unless they are at 28-29 degrees of a sign in natal.  See Elijah Wood.
I only look at the outer progs as they relate to the personals.

When looking at progs, look to Sun and Moon, whatever sign they land in – you are learning and exploring the ENERGY of THAT SIGN now.

Inner planets Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars – look at them all – your planets are vacationing in those energies, learning the dialect, customs, digging in with the locals and hanging out. 

With Mars trine Saturn Rx ruler in natal, I work plenty with two jobs, but while prog Mars and Moon were tag teaming in Cap I was A MACHINE.

Look to MC, ASC – apply the same.
What natal house is brought to the MC ?

eg.  My MC is now in Sagittarius, (my natal 12 is brought to prog MC)  so I am revealing much of what has been hidden – though I am still cryptic because my progressed Sun and Mercury are in Scorpio.

Look to how your progressed planets are interacting with your natal planets.
When progressed planets are in aspect to natals, choices revolving around those planetary energies come to fruition – growth and change is highlighted.

Drop progs into your natal and watch the transits spearheading growth as they fly by.

We have a choice.
Always a choice…

Respond high qi or low qi.
Bend or break.
Adaptation, improvisation.
Rise UP

Peace out

Evolve into love

Full Moon in Taurus 6 degrees
Monday 29 2:49pm CST, USA

We are almost Fully Looney, people ! 
Or are some of us already there and then some ?!

Full Toro Moon is for HOooOowling – Toro rules the throat – so let’er RIP !

Hallelujah Venus off my late 9th house Virgo Sun/Uranus/Pluto stellium and bunglefuq progs: Virgo Venus / Uranus [exact] with a sidekick of Pluto [opposite transit Uranus on prog Saturn – which squares prog Mars in Cap to which Pluto is applying].

Recently visited my mother…guess what happens when you put two stressed out Plutonics in the same room. 

OoOoh waitress ? wtf is my Xanex horse tranq ?!

I spent the morning in tears, Virgo processing events of late.

Chrysalis stage anyone ? – deceptively silent – behind the curtain: atomic meltdown.
Shifting / grinding brain gears – BIGTIME unavoidable mental metamorphosis – didn’t realize I was holding my breath until it passed – then WHAM release.

Mars opposite Jupiter Rx – both in AIR – brought internet sparring over some idiotic Doctor Who cartoon that implied the companions were common carbon copies of one another – interchangeable arm candy.  Yet another slight to all women everywhere.
Hey, smack it up on my page – fair game – If I disagree, you’ll know it.  If I agree you will also know it.  I may be blunt – but I am honest.

Show ain’t over yet – Full Toro Moon is in my lunar house (opposite my natal Neptune) with SuperMoon eclipse to follow Nov 13 ON my Neptuner.

This is my NINE year – culmination – solar return is Cardinal heavy, North Node of Destiny smack on ASC with Pluto as focal planet of a T-Square with Sun opposite Uranus.
Lock and Load Baby – this is dead straight on shakedown street. 
I suspect many of you are feeling the CHRYSALIS POWER SURGES as well, yes ?
Do tell…I would love to hear your experience of Uranus square Pluto thus far… 

I apologize for sliding into astro home plate in the bottom of the 9th – been a bit busy – but now I’m back in the game !

Venus into Libra

Sunday 28
8:04am CST, USA

Ahhh…a light fluffy frothy Venus whipped into a perfect curly Q with sprinkles.
* Lovely ! *
Sweets, scents, art, beauty, friendliness, charm and diplomacy all sit sweetly in the
Libran parlor.

Venus loves to freely flit and flirt in this intellectual, communicative AIR sign, her home – she rules this house beautiful.  She is polite, polished, matchie- smatchie, and wants you the same.  Her sense and sensibilities will suffer greatly if a fugly shoddy – or horrors !  outdated ensemble should stumble across the doorstep on date night. 

She is bubbly, outgoing and honestly enjoys the company of others – the exchange of ideas and concepts revolving around art, social equality and how to balance and beautify everything is a sure-fire win.  She is in love with love, romance is key as is being thoughtful and considerate.

Librans can be incredibly indecisive – fair warning – they often like you to choose dinner and arrange plans so they won’t have to fret over it.  I had a Libra friend that looked at 7 painted color swatches on the wall for years – at last visit – still no choice.

They are great minglers at parties, the hostess with the mostest serving up a smile so sweetlyThey are emotionally straightforward and will work to keep a relationship running smoothly, they dislike chaos and discord Saturn is exalted in Libra – fairness and stability in a mate is especially treasured.
Heads up !
Libra into Venus means she is opposite Uranus Rx in Aries and square Pluto in Capricorn right off the bat.

You have mail !
Someone most likely a woman delivers a surprise revolving around creativity / love / money.  Communication resolves past issues, propels you forward into your future – fresh ideas are incoming regarding emotional matters held over from the past : childhood, siblings, or close relatives. 

Men / mentors step up to the plate to assist your healing in some form or fashion, offering stability and guidance. 

A whole new way of seeing and thinking develops from these exchanges – actions needed to forge ahead will become obvious.  Growing pains likely, but in the end they are signs of your revolutionary evolution into your divine rebirth. 
Spread your wings and  F L Y . . .


Hey, it’s me again

Figured as much.
Mars nearly trine my Toro Moon and I am on a Robin Zander bender.

Another Robin Zander bender, more like, lol.

Cheap Trick should be in the Hall of Fame already !
April 1st is Cheap Trick Day in Illinois by law.  hee love that.

Robin’s Toro Moon (exalted) and Jupiter conjunct my Moon, which means they also trine my Virgo Stellium. Robin’s Pisces Venus (exalted) Mars conjunction is trine my Neptuner.  His Aquarius Sun and Cap Mercury also trine my stellium. Robin’s Leo Pluto is conjunct my Venus Jupiter conjunction. My Leo stuff also sextiles his Saturn Neptune conjunction in Libra. My Libra Mercury is conjunct his Saturn Neptune. My Moon sextiles his Cancer Uranus….so is plenty fair to say, I liiiike him

My Mom (Sag rising)  took me to see Cheap Trick, (my first I asked for live show- Kris Kristofferson was a gifty first when my Mom opted out) which of course is reflected in the natals.  ie: My Mom’s Venus and Mars are both trine Robin’s Saturn/ Neptune in Libra.  His Venus and Mars conjunction trines her Cancer Pluto.  There’s more, but you get the idea.  My former husband who has heard them live several times at my request has good synastry with Robin too, their Moons are conjunct too, for starters.

Everyone we meet we have some sort of energetic reaction with, a grinding or an ease.

Growth is located in the squares and oppositions – we work to release the pressure – but too many and there is a break.  outta here !

Learning astrology is more than just the natal, it is understanding the transits and progressions too…

Transits are the global vibe – what is up there in the sky happening now.

Progressions are your personal chart  forwarded to reflect your growth to date.

When reading progressions,
Look to your progressed Sun for insights into where your awareness is focused.

The Moon shows where your feelings are living.

Check to see what natal house has progressed to the ascendant, there will be a focus on the activities of that house.

Check out your angular planets 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th for they are strong areas of focus.

Compare your progressed Moon phase with that of the progressed Sun – new moons are beginnings, full moons are culminations, waning moons signify endings.

Note if any planets have just switched signs, it will be felt.

Also compare your progressed with your natal, conjunctions and squares being very important.

When progressions activate the natal and transits activate both, there is an event.

I will use myself as an example:  Work, work, work it’s all about the work. sheesh. ha
My progressions in a nutshell: 2nd house (work) Aquarius brought to the ascendant. Saturn (my natal ruler, rules work) in the 1st opposite Venus (love, creativity and money) which is not so happily squeezed between game changers Uranus and Pluto in the 7th.  Sun in Scorpio keeping company with Mercury under good aspect, thankfully !  Mars tightly conjunct Moon (10 and 11 degrees respectively) in Capricorn square Saturn.
(work ! + lots of it – also a bit cranky is an understatement, lol)

Recent transit that boggled me was Pluto direct (Pluto stationed retrograde at 9 degrees Cap April 13th.) nearly conjunct progressed Mars and Moon.  As Pluto activated progressed Mars and Moon it was also squaring my natal Saturn at 9 Aries, and coming to trine my natal Moon in Taurus.  Someone, yes a man from my past came calling and pretty much rocked my world.  Again.

That’s all I am saying about that transit + dude, prog Merc is in Scorpio 8th, after all. lol

This post has been Gemini all over the place, I was indeed thinking Venus retrograde when I posted Voices, not feeling the Pluto love at the mo….so that Pluto post I promised… I was thinking it would have to wait, then I ended up talking about Pluto anyway.
Ah well…prog Venus attracts the odd Pluto blurt despite my efforts – it is squashed between my natal Virgo Sun + Uranus (Pluto conjunction) and transiting Mars is coming to activate them – so may as well roll out the surf the surprises red carpet.

I hope you understand my meaning….
peace out peeps ~

something stirs

The stars are veiled. Something stirs in the East.  A sleepless malice.
The eye of the enemy is moving.

He is HERE.
I’m mainlining Pluto – you ?  Mars and Uranus too, the whole lot, hackles are up and cursing is online.  I am having the righteous indignation transit in spades.  Going nuclear over idiotic annoyances.  Can’t seem to beg steal or borrow zen.
My night off bit the dust as soon as I walked in the door – night off ? Zen ?  HA !
I am too busy slaying dragons for zen.  I am Zen Dragon.  My new mantra, lol.
I will make this short.  For your sake.  Get to the astro and otherwise, STFU.
Progressions.  Looked at yours ?  The angles are the most important.
1st, 4th, 7th, 10th.   What is going on there ?  It will add dimension guaranteed.

Where is your Moon ?  You will feel your progressed Moon.
Look to what house has progressed to the angles. 
Weave between the natal progressions and transits to build your story. 
Progressions will activate what is present in the natal. 

For example, my progressed Moon is square progressed Venus which has just passed over natal Uranus.  I started this site roughly 7 months ago because my feelings, my love for astrology had to be expressed.
Moon = feelings.  square = internal. Venus = love  Uranus= astrology.
Mercury = expression / healing (Chiron)

Another example, my progressed Moon is in Capricorn, not the easiest place since Moon fluctuates, likes room to move and Capricorn steadies and solidifies.  My progressed Moon is conjunct Mars.  Feeling aggressive and issues with males – yes.
Yet : Mars is exalted in Capricorn so I work, work and work.  This turns out to be a very good thing… because…

My seventh house is locked and loaded – Venus is crammed between Uranus and Pluto.  That’s serious change -ups in love $$ and dealing with others.  Uranus, in the seventh, which rules astrology is opposite Saturn in the first, which is work and self.
I am finding the compromise between the two.
Progressed ASC is my natal 2nd house my $$, worth, esteem.
Progressed MC is conjunct natal Mars in Sagittarius, so work lots, sleep little.
Progressed DC is on natal Jupiter, learning and teaching.

Transit Mars applies again to natal Pluto, while transit Pluto applies to natal Saturn.
Hammering out the Virgo details, the forge the hammer and steel.
work. work. work.

I love this pic… everyone in the Helm’s deep scenes filmed – in the dark – in the rain – for weeks.  A labour of love.  Peter is keen on the fight scenes, obviously.  What grandeur the cast and crew created by slogging it out in the rain and mud, yes..?!

What is worth fighting for ?
Mars demands the answer and will go through hell to get it.
