Colorado is ruled by Leo.
Forests are also ruled by Leo; evergreens by Pluto.
Lightning is Uranus.  Fire is Mars.

Hot, dry conditions are ruled by Sun, Mars and Saturn.

CO Fire

Colorado – Leo stellium.
Uranus 19, Mars 13, Sun 9, Mercury 6 all focal planets of a T-square with Jupiter and Pluto (which oppose each other).

Tr. Uranus (lightning, unpredictable) at 8 Aries is trine the Leo stellium.  Trine is thought of as an easy energy, but Uranus is wild and unpredictable.  I recently had tr. Uranus trine to Mars and it was not pleasant.  Uranus brings the unexpected every time.  In my case – the Uranus / Mars situation did sort itself favorably.

Lightning has started fires in red-flag drought conditions, (tr. Uranus trine Uranus, Mars, Sun in Leo) many people are being evacuated and Colorado is suffering huge losses of both forests and homes.  The grand cross you can see at the top of yesterday’s post is an aspect of extreme tension both personally and globally.

Venus stationing while conjunct Jupiter (prayers) in sextile to Colorado’s Leo stellium and the country is praying for rain.  Cancer Sun is in the house of Moon (rain) coming to trine Chiron the healer / philosopher.  Mercury just entered Leo and is applying to Colorado’s stellium starting with Mercury at 6 degrees.  Mercury conjunct Mercury means communication is favored and it is also applying in trine to North Node of Destiny in Sagittarius, which Jupiter (prayer) rules.

Prayers, for Colorado please and thank you.

Ray Harryhausen

I love Love LOVE Ray’s work.  Own a bunch of it, just watched Jason and the Argonauts again last week.  I have been wanting to look up his astro deets, his stop – motion work is simply incredible. He calls it Dynamation.  I have done claymation films myself, and it takes  f  o  r  e  v  e  r   !   Worth it though, it’s amazing to see the finished product come to life.  SoOo on to the astro:

Boom !
